Muslims getting stoned before it was cool, new pandemic legislation getting set for fall, Naomi Wolf on gun confiscation: Links 1, June 6th, 2022

Before we begin, a brilliant Rap song about Trudeau. YouTube of course, won’t allow an embed or a download. So you have to watch it there. If you have a VPN and are not logged in to YouTube please do so. If not, wait till someone puts it up on another platform.

Oh! Wait someone did already

1. Muslim mob stones and immolates alive a man over alleged blasphemy in Nigeria. Communism and Islam sitting in a tree …

2. Bundestag Vice-President demands new pandemic legislation that will enable a return to mask, test and vaccine requirements in the Fall. 

Katrin Göring-Eckardt is demanding that her coalition partners in the FDPpermit a return to containment measures, when it comes for the German government to re-issue our pandemic protection legislation after 23 September:

Bundestag Vice President Katrin Göring-Eckardt (Greens) has called for … a change in the FDP’s Corona policy in view of the ongoing pandemic.

“Christian Lindner and the FDP cannot be allowed to keep applying the brakes when it comes to Corona protections in the fall,” she told Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND). “The government must focus on precaution today – for our health, our schools, the economy and catering and cultural industries. We need something we can depend on.”

3. Trans women cyclists who used to compete as men take first and second place in new ‘non-binary’ race – leaving young mother in third

An ‘inclusive’ cycling race that saw male-born trans athletes trounce women competitors has been condemned by critics.

The event on Friday finished with two transgender women in first and second places, with a young mother in third.

Gold in the ThunderCrit race at Herne Hill velodrome in South-East London went to Emily Bridges, a trans cyclist who was barred from a woman’s race in March and who had competed in men’s events only the month before.

4. MUST WATCH: Video by a man who was asked to testify to Parliamentary committee on one of the many totalitarian and freedom-destroying bills before the House of Commons. in this case, Bill C-11. One to obliterate freedom of speech by Canadians on Social Media.

5. Naomi Wolf: A leftist rethinks her opposition to the 2nd Amendment of the USA. This is a bit long but worth reading right to the end.

[…]

The last thing keeping us free in America, as the lights go off all over Europe- and Australia, and Canada – is, yes, we must face this fact, the Second Amendment.

I can’t believe I am writing those words. But here we are and I stand by them.

I am a child of the peace movement. A daughter of the Left, of a dashingly-bearded proto-Beatnik poet, my late dad, and of a Summer of Love activist/cultural anthropologist, my lovely mom. We are a lineage of anti-war, longhaired folks who believe in talking things out.

By the time I was growing up in California in the 1960s and 1970s, weapons were supposed to have become passe. When I played at friends’ houses in our neighborhood in San Francisco, there were posters on the walls: “War is Not Healthy for Children and Other Living Things.” Protesters had iconically placed daisies in the rifle barrels of unhip-looking National Guardsmen.

We were obviously supposed to side with the daisies.

Thank you all for your attention and willingness to look outside the official state mandated view of things. This increasingly becomes a dangerous position to take given we have a small fringe prime minister with unacceptable views, doesn’t believe in science and frankly, who we must ask, should he be tolerated tolerated as he restricts our freedoms and is a misogynist and racist.

Lastly, I don’t know what this video is saying, but the animation is spectacular. Tremendous artistry. Beyond that I have no idea what its saying. But it is worth the watch for its artistic merits.

  1. sky news australia – ‘Tyrant Trudeau’: Russell Brand slams Canadian PM over new ‘misinformation’ powers

    Comedian Russell Brand has slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for “fermenting discord” within his own country.

    In a 13-minute video posted on his YouTube page on Sunday, Mr Brand said Prime Minister Trudeau is using new powers to crack down on legitimate dissent.

    Last month, Prime Minister Trudeau announced Canada’s security agencies will get new tools to combat “extremist ideology” and “misinformation.”

    Mr Brand warned the new powers will erode freedom within Canada.

    “It won’t mean more freedom, it’ll mean their ability to capture your data, share that data, and use that data to manipulate your behaviour,” Mr Brand said.

      Justin Trudeau wants “new tools” to tackle online “misinformation”.

      This, as Canada introduces national digital ID. So, is Trudeau right that the world is getting more dangerous, or is the real danger increased censorship and the capturing of your digital freedom?

  3. Biden invokes Defense Production Act to boost solar panel manufacturing

    The president is also issuing a two-year tariff exemption on solar panel imports from several Southeast Asian nations.

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is using his executive powers Monday to boost the domestic production of solar panels and their parts and will issue a 24-month tariff exemption on imports of the products from several countries.

    The White House said Biden will authorize the use of the Defense Production Act to accelerate manufacturing of solar panels in the United States as a way to strengthen the administration’s efforts to shift the country toward clean energy.

    The move will allow the Department of Energy to “rapidly expand” U.S. manufacturing of solar panel parts, power grid infrastructure such as transformers, heat pumps, building insulation and other equipment, the White House said in a news release.

    Biden is also directing that “master supply agreements” are used “to increase the speed and efficiency with which domestic clean electricity providers can sell their products to the U.S. government,” the release said.

    In addition, Biden is using his executive authority to temporarily allow tariff-free solar panel imports from Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

    “President Biden has invoked the Defense Production Act so that the U.S. can take ownership of its clean energy independence,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a statement. “For too long the nation’s clean energy supply chain has been over-reliant on foreign sources and adversarial nations.”

    Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said in a statement that imported solar panels are “an important component to addressing the immediate demands of bringing additional energy sources online and addressing the energy needs of the American people.”

    “As droughts cripple the West and Russia’s unwarranted invasion of Ukraine have placed increasing strains on America’s energy market, preventing disruptions to the electric power system, diversifying our energy sources and responding to the climate crisis have never been more urgent, and solar energy is an essential component of meeting those needs,” she said.

    The exemption for the four countries comes after a Commerce Department investigation into whether solar panels imported from those nations were circumventing tariffs on goods made in China, according to Reuters.

    “I remain committed to upholding our trade laws and ensuring American workers have a chance to compete on a level playing field,” Raimondo said.

  4. NBC News – The U.S. has wasted over 82 million Covid vaccine doses

    Vaccine providers say declining demand, large minimum orders and multidose vials make it hard to avoid waste while still offering shots to anyone who wants them.

    Pharmacies, states, U.S. territories and federal agencies discarded 82.1 million Covid vaccine doses from December 2020 through mid-May — just over 11 percent of the doses the federal government distributed, according to data the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shared with NBC News. That’s an increase from the 65 million doses the CDC told the Associated Press had been wasted as of late February.

    Two retail pharmacy chains, CVS and Walmart, were responsible for over a quarter of the doses thrown away in the United States in that time period, in part due to the sheer volume of vaccine they handled.

    Five other pharmacies or dialysis centers — Health Mart, DaVita, Rite Aid, Publix and Costco — wasted fewer overall doses, but a higher share: more than a quarter of the vaccine doses they received, well above the national average. Two states also discarded more than a quarter of their doses: Oklahoma, which tossed 28 percent of the nearly 4 million doses it received, and Alaska, which threw away almost 27 percent of its 1 million doses, according to the CDC data.

    The overall amount of waste is in line with World Health Organization estimates for large vaccination campaigns. But public health experts said the waste is still alarming at a time when less than half of fully vaccinated Americans have a booster shot — which is critical to fight newer, more contagious virus strains — and when many poorer countries continue to struggle with vaccine supply.

    “It’s a tremendous loss to pandemic control — especially in the context of millions of people around the world who haven’t even been able to get a first dose,” said Dr. Sheela Shenoi, an infectious disease expert at the Yale School of Medicine.

    The millions of wasted vaccine doses include some that expired on pharmacy shelves before they could be used, others that were spoiled by the thousands when power went out or freezers broke, and still others that were tossed at the end of the day when no one wanted the last few doses in an opened vial.

    Unlike most other immunizations in the U.S., the coronavirus vaccines come in multidose vials, which means all the doses must be used within hours once the vials are opened — or discarded.

    State health officials and pharmacies said that’s been a major contributor to vaccine waste. Some also said the vaccines come in such large minimum orders that they are left with more than they need.

    Some pharmacies, including CVS and Rite Aid, said their priority has been offering the vaccine on demand. If getting a shot into an arm means opening a new vial and wasting the unused doses, that’s a tradeoff they’re willing to make.

    CVS wasted nearly 11.8 million doses, or about 13 percent of the 89.9 million it received. The share of doses discarded is just above the national average, but in total still amounts to more wasted doses than any other pharmacy or state.

    “??We often have to open a multidose vial at the end of the day for a single walk-in,” the company said in a statement. “Those vials have a very limited shelf life, which unfortunately means unused vaccine will be disposed of. The same challenge is faced by others administering vaccinations.”

    Walgreens, one of the nation’s largest pharmacy chains, wasted 8.3 million doses, or about 10.5 percent of the nearly 79.6 million doses it received.

    In a statement, the company pointed to no-show appointments, cancellations and open vials expiring as reasons for the waste.

    “The latest CDC guidance advises that providing COVID-19 vaccinations should be prioritized, even if it leads to vaccine waste,” the company said.

    The challenge of getting shots into arms and avoiding waste has become especially difficult as demand wanes for the vaccines, experts and officials say.

    “The demand has plateaued or is coming down, and that leads to open-vial wastage — especially with multidose vials,” said Ravi Anupindi, a professor of operations research and management at the University of Michigan who has studied vaccination campaigns.

    “It’s a demand problem,” he added.
