    • CNN – Covid-19 vaccine or her marriage: the impossible choice she had to make

      Covid-19 vaccine conspiracy theories spreading on social media have been tearing families apart.

      CNN Business’s Donie O’Sullivan spoke to one woman whose oncologist recommended she get the vaccine.

      Her anti-vaxx husband gave her an ultimatum.

  1. Covid in Germany: Workers separated in canteens by vaccination status

    Some of Germany’s largest companies, including Bayer and Eon, have begun making unvaccinated workers eat their lunch in a separate area of the office cafeterias.

    Under the “two-class canteen” system, employees who have been double-jabbed can sit together as they please.

    Those who have not, or refuse to disclose their vaccination status, must dine in a designated zone behind Perspex panels where they are required to wear masks when not eating and must observe stricter social distancing rules.

    The schemes are being piloted by Bayer, the Leverkusen-based chemicals conglomerate; Eon, an electricity provider with headquarters in Essen; and Alltours, the Düsseldorf travel group, according to a report in the local Rheinische Post newspaper.

    Other companies in North Rhine-Westphalia, the powerhouse of the German economy, are…[paywall]

    paul j watson – German Companies Creating Segregated Canteens For Vaccinated and Unvaccinated

    Second class citizen status for the unjabbed.

    Major companies in Germany are segregating their employees by creating canteens for vaccinated people and separate areas for the unvaccinated, who will be forced to continue to follow social distancing and mask mandates.

    Pharmaceuticals giant Bayer, energy company Eon, and travel company Alltours are all set to impose the new rules, which will see the unvaccinated treated like second class citizens.

    “In the ‘2G’ areas for vaccinated and recovered people, employees would be allowed to eat together under completely normal conditions, while those who are not vaccinated or do not provide information about their vaccination status would have to continue to live with rules on social distancing, mask wearing and partitions during meals,” reports the Local.

    Bayer also announced that its employees have also started forming work groups that “exclude unvaccinated staff.”

    People visiting Christmas markets in Berlin who haven’t been vaccinated will also be denied entry.

    As we previously highlighted, despite facing brazen discrimination, 90 per cent of Germans who haven’t had the vaccine say they have no plans to get it in the near future.

    As we highlighted back in January, German authorities announced that COVID lockdown rulebreakers would be arrested and detained in refugee camps located across the country.

    Earlier this summer it was also confirmed that the unvaccinated would be deprived of basic lifestyle activities like visiting cinemas and restaurants.

    The editor-in-chief of Germany’s top newspaper Bild shocked some people by apologizing for the news outlet’s fear-driven coverage of COVID, specifically to children who were told “that they were going to murder their grandma.”

    During a meeting with other world leaders in Rome, Angela Merkel engaged in COVID security theater by briefly wearing a mask when she exited her vehicle, only to remove it as soon as she entered the building.

  2. Italy: Police clash with anti-Bolsonaro protesters as Brazilian pres visits Padua

    Police used water cannon against an anti-Bolsonaro demonstration in Padua, Monday, as the Brazilian far-right president visited a church in the Northern Italy city after the G20 meeting in Rome.

    According to local media, the arrest of an activist sparked a clash between protesters and police, as protesters tried to break the blockade to reach the basilica of San Antonio, which Jair Bolsonaro intended to visit.

    Around 1,000 protesters attended the rally against the Brazilian president.

    • the daily beast – Jair Bolsonaro Goes Full Italian and These Locals Are Mad as Hell

      The Brazilian president was met by angry protesters in this ancestral home in northern Italy after being given honorary citizenship.

      ROME—Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro skipped climate talks in Scotland to ruffle feathers in Italy, where he was bestowed honorary citizenship on Monday in the village of Anguillara Veneta. The town is the birthplace of his grandfather, who was born with the last name Bolzonaro—changing the “z” to an “s” when he emigrated to Brazil in the late 19th century.

      “I am moved to be here,” he told a crowd of supporters of Italian right-wing leader Matteo Salvini—who was his personal guide. “It’s from here that my grandparents left. I am pleased to be surrounded by good people.”

      Shortly after he was given the honor on Nov. 1—a national holiday in Italy when people honor the dead—police had to use water cannon to push back around 500 protesters who waited outside the San Antonio basilica in Padua during the Brazilian president visit. Some of the demonstrators shouted “Fascist” and “Misogynist” and others touted the autocratic leader as an Italian abroad who makes them proud.

      Some threw rocks and pushed back against a line of riot police while others threw roses, sparking scuffles between the two sides.

      Seemingly ignorant of those protesting against him, he went on a Trumpian rampage which naturally scorned the media. “It was God’s will that I become president of Brazil,” he said. “We are doing excellent work which is certainly recognized by the people but not by the mass media.”

      Earlier in the day, Brazilian journalists covering the G20 conference in Rome filed a formal complaint against his bodyguards, allegedly they roughed them up as they partook in a walkabout through Rome’s city center during the conference. The journalists say they were hit and pushed as they approached his entourage.

      Anguillara Veneta’s mayor Alessandra Buoso, a member of Salvini’s far-right Lega party, gathered his own counter-protesters to support the Brazilian president, shouting over the boos that the unusual act of honorary citizenship was meant “to reward the welcome that migrants from Anguillara Veneta have received in Brazil.” More than 1,000 people from the region emigrated to Brazil in the late 1800s, including Bolsonaro’s grandparents and 56 relatives.

      Bolsonaro’s citizenship ceremony was held in a 17th century villa, and was followed by a formal black tie dinner with around 200 people—mostly supporters of Salvini’s far-right Lega party and Brazilian hardliners who were part of Bolsonaro’s entourage. The gala event cost local taxpayers around €10,000, according to local media.

      On Tuesday, Salvini accompanied Bolsonaro to Pistoia, Tuscany, where he was met with more protesters including those carrying signs that read: “Bolsonaro Out” and “No Citizenship for Dictators” as he visited a memorial for Brazilian soldiers who lost their lives during World War II.

      Italy’s left-leaning parties called the decision to give the controversial leader —who is facing accusations of crimes against humanity for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic—a hero’s welcome a “disgrace” and “shame for Italy.”

  3. Just heard from a Great-aunt in Scotland that one of my cousins, Sean MacBeth – 54 – just died from his second Pfizer shot.
    Last time I saw him was in 1991 in Togo when he came to visit and I’m actually amazed that he fell for the narrative, because he was a REBEL.
    My great-aunt Deirdre, who’s turning 80 next month didn’t take the shot, but her son and his family all did take the poison.
    That makes it now 3 dead in my extended family as far as I know and 2 seriously ill.
    I wonder how many more have keeled over from that shite that I haven’t heard about because I’m not in contact with all of them.

    • That is so awful. May Sean rest in peace – 54 is way too young. In contrast, I’m 60 and haven’t been sick in over 20 years. I can’t believe we don’t have pitchforks and torches going after these phoney doctors and politicians forcing this poison on us.

      • The Defender website has an article naming all the so called Drs. Who voted 17-0 in favour of giving 5-11year olds the injections. Some members are temporary voting members, others had to abstain because of conflicts. My goodness the Gates foundation gives a lot of money to the hospitals and universities the “temporary “ voting members work for.

        One of the voting members, Captain Amanda Cohen, at a meeting in 2020 stated “I just want to …..clarify one point, which is just for the public record that the Federal Government cannot mandate vaccines…..In the setting of an EAU, patients, individuals will have the right to refuse vaccines”.

        Another member Oveta Fuller from the University of Michigan, a temporary voting member voted against recommending Pfizer vaccine for emergency use in December, 2020. — “We don’t even know what’s going to happen to people in the long term who get these lipid particles and mRNA Vaccine”.

        James Hildreth, a temporary voting member has spoken in favour of vaccines and against Ivermectin.

  4. Todesfahrer soll absichtlich in Kindergruppe gefahren sein

    Der Mann, der mit seinem Auto in eine Gruppe von Schulkindern in Witzenhausen fuhr und ein Mädchen tötete, hat womöglich vorsätzlich gehandelt. Die Staatsanwaltschaft ermittelt wegen Mordes.

    […]Der verantwortliche Fahrer war zunächst aufgrund seiner Verletzungen in ein Krankenhaus gebracht worden. Inzwischen befinde er sich in einer Psychiatrie, wie die Polizei mitteilte. Es bestehe der Verdacht, dass der Mann an einer psychiatrischen Erkrankung leide, die ursächlich für die Tat gewesen sei. Hinweise für einen extremistischen oder terroristischen Hintergrund lägen nicht vor.

    […]Die genauen Hintergründe und Motive der Tat seien weiterhin unklar und sollen ermittelt werden.

    A run over a group of children by a 30-year-old driver in the city of Witzenhausen in the north of the federal state of Hesse in Germany and resulting in the death of an eight-year-old girl is no longer classified as an accident by the investigation. As reported on Monday, November 1, the dpa agency, citing data released by the prosecutor’s office and the police, after clarifying a number of details of the incident, a criminal case was initiated on premeditated murder. Currently, the defendant is in a psychiatric hospital. It is suspected that he suffers from a serious mental illness, which was the reason for his actions.

  5. VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis on Saturday called on lawmakers worldwide to overcome “the narrow confines” of partisan politics to quickly reach consensus on fighting climate change.

    The pope addressed parliamentarians who were in Rome for a preparatory meeting before the U.N’s annual climate conference, which begins in Glasgow, Scotland, on Oct. 31.

    Francis referred to a joint appeal he and other religious leaders signed this week that calls for governments to commit to ambitious goals at the U.N. conference, which experts consider a critical opportunity to tackle the threat of global warming.

  6. Facebook will adopt new policies to address harassment targeting public figures

    Facebook will expand its current harassment policies to further protect users from abuse and harmful content on the platform.

    On Wednesday, the company announced it would ban content that degrades or sexualizes public figures, such as elected officials, celebrities, activists, and journalists. This builds on the company’s current policies that exist to protect ordinary users in the same way.

  7. Pope Demands Silicon Valley “In The Name Of God” Censor “Hate Speech”, “Conspiracy Theories”

    Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

    Pope Francis invoked God in an effort to pressure Silicon Valley giants into censoring more content, including “hate speech” and “conspiracy theories.”

    The Catholic leader apparently believes it’s Christian and Godly to empower giant corporations to shut down free speech.

    This is no surprise given his previous stance on free speech in response to the slaughter of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, when he rhetorically sided with the terrorists who murdered them in cold blood.

    As we document in the video below, which Pope Francis would surely love to see banned, the Supreme Pontiff smears his critics as performing “the work of the devil.”

    In reality, his every action and position has served to further the anti-Christ globalist beast system for which he is a willing puppet.

    No doubt the Pope would respond to such claims by characterizing them as “conspiracy theories” and “hate speech.”

    Beginning to see how this works?

    TAGGED: CLIMATE, DENIAL, DISINFORMATION, FACEBOOK, WAR ON SCIENCE
    On Friday a coalition of environmental and tech accountability organizations sent an open letter to leadership of Facebook, Twitter, and other major social media platforms, calling on them to protect their users from the fossil fuel industry’s false advertising climate disinformation.

    facebook commits to 100% renewable energy by 2020By Climate Denier Roundup

    “As we approach November’s United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26),” the letter reads, “it’s never been more clear that we are running out of time to avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change.” And because “research has outlined that it is far more efficient to prevent the spread of disinformation than to try to correct it afterward,” and “analysis shows the mass of paid and organic disinformation comes from a few bad actors that are well-connected to the oil and gas industry,” the groups are “calling on all big tech platforms to take concrete, transparent steps to eliminate climate disinformation.”

    They demand that social media companies adopt policies to “eliminate climate disinformation”, and apply “consistent standards to rapidly deplatform professional climate denial influencers and repeat offenders” while also creating fact-checking policies (that are “protected from politicization by company staff”) and “a ban on paid ads from serial climate deniers, like fossil fuel companies that have systematically lobbied against climate action.”

    The new Google and YouTube crackdown on climate change skeptics will allow for discussion of climate science but will entail demonetizing anyone who contradicts the scientific consensus, even credentialed users, the search and video giant clarified.

    Last week, the search and video giant announced it will prohibit ads on and any monetization of content that contradicts the scientific consensus on climate change, which will affect anyone who wants to make host content or put up ads that refer to climate change as a “hoax or a scam” or deny that human activity contributes to climate change.

  10. Climate crisis at forefront of agenda for Parliament of the World’s Religions
    BY NIDHI UPADHYAYA
    Posted Oct 20, 2021

    The Parliament of the World’s Religions, a gathering of religious leaders from around the world, concluded its eighth convening Oct. 18. With a central theme of “Opening Our Hearts to the World: Compassion in Action,” the virtual event’s presenters spoke on interfaith understanding, religious prejudice, gender equality and healing in difficult times.

    But amid musical performances and spiritual blessings, the recurring theme of the three-day interfaith event was climate change.

    “The twin threats to our future, climate change and biodiversity loss, we’ve also brought on ourselves by the disrespect of the natural world — the absurd idea that there could be unlimited economic development in a world of finite natural resources and the growing human population,” said Jane Goodall during the opening ceremony, which also featured several leaders sharing prayers in their native languages.

    The world-renowned primatologist and conservationist pointed out in her speech that more than 70% of the world follows some faith or religious tradition, giving religious leaders the opportunity to play a great role in bringing about change.

    The gathering was the first virtual convening in the 128-year history of the event. With a goal of fostering dialogue and cooperation across global religious groups, the Parliament of the World’s Religions was first hosted at the world’s fair in Chicago in 1893 and has often been considered the birthplace of today’s interfaith movement. Since its inception the group has hosted eight convenings, gathering religious leaders from around the world to explore ways they can collectively address global issues.

    In 2021, the major global issue that kept bubbling to the surface was the climate crisis and its long-reaching impact. The topic was addressed by a number of speakers across ideological and religious backgrounds.

  11. THE PAPACY’S ADMISSION TO
    CHANGING GOD’S LAW

    One day a man picked up Peter Geiermann’s Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine and read the following on page 50:

    Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
    A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
    Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
    A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.
    The man was dumbfounded and supposed there must be some mistake so he wrote a letter to the then famous James Cardinal Gibbons of Baltimore, and asked if the Catholic church did, indeed, change the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. The Cardinal replied, “Of course, the Catholic church claims that the change was her act. And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters.”
    Notice, also, the following words from The Catholic Record of London, Ontario, Canada, September 1, 1923: “Sunday is our MARK of authority…the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.”
    Notice this from A Doctrinal Catechism by Stephen Keenan:
    Q. Have you any other way of proving that the church has power to institute festivals of precept?
    A. Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.
    The Papacy claims that it changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday and that Sunday or Sunday-keeping is its mark of authority and power. God’s mark or sign of power, is Sabbath and Sabbath-keeping and the beast’s sign or mark of power, is Sunday and Sunday-keeping.
    THE PAPACY ASKS A QUESTION
    Here is the famous question which the Papacy has repeatedly asked Protestants. And Protestants have remained strangely silent:
    “You will tell me that Saturday was the Jewish Sabbath, but that the Christian Sabbath has been changed to Sunday. Changed! But by whom? Who has authority to change an express commandment of Almighty God? When God has spoken and said, ‘Thou shalt keep holy the seventh day’ who shall dare to say, nay, thou mayest work and do all manner of worldly business on the seventh day, but thou shalt keep holy the first day in its stead? This is a most important question which I know not how you can answer. You are a Protestant, and you profess to go by the Bible and the Bible only; and yet, in so important a matter as the observance of one day in seven as a holy day, you go against the plain letter of the Bible, and put another day in the place of that which He has commanded. The command to keep holy the seventh day is one of the ten commandments; you believe the other nine are still binding; who gave you authority to tamper with the fourth? If you are consistent with your own principle, if you really follow the Bible and the Bible only, you ought to be able to produce some portion of the New Testament in which this fourth commandment is expressly altered.” Library of Christian Doctrine, Burns and Oates, pages 3-4, London.
    But as we studied before virtually all churches admit in their official writings that there is no scripture for Sunday sacredness. Protestantism stands guilty before the Judgment bar of God of throwing out the Bible Sabbath! God, Himself, gave the Sabbath as a sign or mark of His power to create and His power to sanctify or save. Exodus 31:17; Ezekiel 20:12. Dare any man tamper with this sacred sign which represents the great God of Heaven and all that He stands for?

  12. EGYPT : Suspect arrested after gruesome beheading in public

    Egyptian police have arrested a man in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia following a gruesome murder yesterday, in which the victim was decapitated in the streets, shocking both witnesses and social media users, after footage was shared online.

    The attack took place in broad daylight and the suspect is said to be seen in video footage carrying a blade and walking away with the victim’s severed head. He is also seen approaching another man in order to attack him, before being apprehended by member of the public, who proceed to beat him.

    According to the Interior Ministry, the accused previously worked at a furniture store owned by the deceased’s brother, although a motive for the killing has not yet been established. Websites circulated testimonies of some witnesses making unverified claims that the murderer’s mother was raped by the victim.

    The Ministry also said that the suspect has a history of mental illness and had been previously treated for drug addiction.

    • EGYPT – Egyptian man held after ‘decapitating friend, roaming streets with his head’

      CAIRO: An Egyptian man has been remanded in custody on Tuesday after allegedly decapitating a friend and roaming the streets of a busy neighbourhood with his head in a basket for 40 minutesbefore police arrived at the scene, according to reports.

      The man will be detained for 15 days pending further investigation into charges of murder and terrorising citizens in the Suez Canal city of Ismalia.

      The perpetrator confessed to the crime, claiming he avenged his mother and sister who were allegedly sexually assaulted by the victim, according to reports.

      Police arrested a man after he had beheaded his friend on the street in Ismailia, putting the head in a bag and carrying it through a busy neighbourhood while brandishing a large knife.

      Locals who attempted to intervene were injured but the man was eventually overwhelmed before being handed over to the police.

      Alleged witnesses on social media said it took police 40 minutes to arrive at the scene and that they were not present when locals apprehended the man.

      The interior ministry later released a statement on its official Facebook account saying the accused man is “mentally disturbed” and had previously been admitted to a mental health facility for treatment with addiction.

      The accused worked for a furniture store that belonged to the brother of the victim, the statement added.

      The incident caused an uproar on social media. The hashtag “the Ismailia crime” and videos of the incident have gone viral, leaving social media users to criticise the apparent security vacuum in the city.

      One Twitter user, sarcastically, wrote, posting a video segment of the incident:

      “This is a horrific murder in Egypt… in the country of safety and security… which has become larger than life at the hands of #Sisi..where there is no thuggery or poverty…this is a civilisation run by a loser… Ismalia.”

      Another tweeted, posting pictures of the incident.

      “Witnesses said…the incident lasted for about 45 minutes…and the police were summoned and didn’t show up until the victim was decapitated and the offender left the crime scene. I swear to God, had the report to the police been about a [protester] holding a banner against Sisi, the police would have shown up in less than five minutes.”
