  1. Publicity Stunt”: German Police Conduct Largest Raid Since 3rd Reich in What They Claim Was ‘Attempted Coup’
    By Richard Abelson

    German police conducted the largest raid since the Third Reich yesterday, raiding 137 properties belonging to 52 people with 3000 cops nationwide. 25 suspects were arrested on charges of forming a terrorist organization, including 71-year-old Prince Henry XIII. of Reuss. Press and half-a-dozen TV crews were informed and on scene, leading a left-wing MP to call the whole thing “a show”.

    It was reminiscent of recent US raids on conservatives in America.

    a laundry list of evidence sure to amuse most MAGA patriots, police found one (1) firearm, as well as blank guns, prepper supplies and large amounts of cash. The conspirators are said to belong to the so-called “Reichsbürger” scene, many of them royalists who believe Germany is occupied by the Allies and has no peace treaty post-WWII. Reichsbürger often sympathize with QAnon.

  2. Campaign Finance Mules” Part 2: UNEMPLOYED Missouri Donors Exposed Who Made Thousands of Donations Totaling Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars
    By Jim Hoft

    Data analyst Chris Gleason came out with a new report on the millions of dollars in donations sent to Democrat candidates across the country in the most recent election cycle.

    The Gateway Pundit earlier reported on the $24 million in donations from hundreds of unemployed donors to Raphael Warnock in Georgia

    Chris Gleason next looked at “campaign finance mules” in Missouri after The Gateway Pundit spoke with Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft who asked us about the number of campaign mules in Missouri.

    Chris was taken aback by what he discovered. Chris uncovered the most prolific campaign finance mule he has yet exposed.

    According to Chris, “Steven in Missouri” made 1,411 political donations totaling $180,727.97 in the last two years.

    And Steven is UNEMPLOYED.

    Chris said, “When I noticed this “generous donor” I was taken aback by the number of times that he donated. By far this was the most amount of “Times Donated” that I have found thus far in the states that I have looked into.”

    Steven from Missouri donated on average 19 times a day.

    Chris also uncovered “Catherine in Missouri.” Catherine from Frontenac is also unemployed and made 1,793 donations totaling $181,386.27.

    These are just two of the worst unemployed campaign finance mules we discovered operating in the state of Missouri.

    Joe Hoft reported on this phenomenon earlier in his TGP report.

    It turns out that millions in donations were sent to candidates like Raphael Warnock from “money mules” around the country. Warnock was the top beneficiary of all 2022 Democrat candidates of this money distribution scheme.

    In April 2022, engineer Chris Gleason began working on his first data project involving elections. The project was tied to the 2022 midterm election. This was unique for Chris because he had been involved in tech and data for the majority of his adult career although he never used his expertise on a political project.

    The goal was to determine who was most likely to vote for which candidate and how likely they were to support particular candidates and causes.

    What he and a small group of others determined was that Washington State had a massive network of campaign finance mules. They identified massive numbers of registered voters in Washington State who were making thousands of donations to Democrat party candidates nationwide and progressive PACs. The individual donation amounts were not large. These donations were small and had been intentionally set up to avoid throwing up reg flags.

    These “Money Mules” were not wealthy individuals. They were average Americans, living in an average house in an average neighborhood. Or at least that is how it would appear. The investigative group observed massive patterns and red flags in the data. One of the biggest flags was that all of these campaign finance mules in Washington State had been making donations to Raphael Warnock in Georgia.

    We do not yet have the full picture in Missouri. Our investigation continues.

  3. Arizona Mohave County Board of Supervisors to Discuss Litigation Against Maricopa County following Fraudulent Election

    On November 8, 2022, at least 50% of the tabulators or printers were not operating on Election Day in Maricopa County.

    Republicans waited 4 hours in the Arizona sun to vote in Maricopa county. Thousands were told they could vote at a different precinct after they signed in, which they couldn’t. And tens of thousands were told to dump their ballot into a bin that would be counted later.

    Following Election Day, Democrat candidates won more than 50% of the votes despite only recording 17% of the turnout on Election Day. How is this possible?

    In Berlin, Germany they recently threw out an election following similar circumstances of voter suppression

    This is what Arizona must do throw out the fraudulent results and redo the midterm election.

    On December 15th Mohave County Arizona Board of Directors are going to discuss possible litigation against Maricopa County for stealing the 2022 election from the people of Arizona.

    Let’s pray they do the right thing. We cannot these wicked individuals to destroy OUR country.

    1st Update (first day in the court room but the trial’s 2nd day…special thanks to “Jeremy Brown’s Campaign” for filling me in this morning and during breaks)

    The trial of political prisoner Jeremy Brown has been underway since Monday with jury selection, however, the fireworks began to fly immediately on Tuesday and Wednesday! The Gateway Pundit previously reported on the retired Army Green Beret’s CCTV footage of federal agents offering him a paid informant job on January 6th at his home in December 2020. Brown is asking others to come forward.

    After seeing the testimony of prominent FBI officials lying and the treatment of American citizens being denied their Constitutional rights, he decided to release this footage publicly in March 2021.

  6. Trump On Who Is To Blame For Midterm Results: “I Can Name Them ALL!”

    RINOs in the Republican party and the media are trying to blame Donald Trump for the results of the midterm election.

    This is despite his strong endorsement record.

    a Truth Social post, Trump took aim at this narrative and said the reasons for a poor midterm election had nothing to do with him – he also added that he can name who is responsible for the losses.

    Truth Social:

    Establishment Republicans worked against Pro-MAGA candidates.

    McConnell cut funding from competitive races and sent money to try and protect RINOs from MAGA challengers.

    The Senate Leadership Fund brought in $250 million during the midterm election cycle.

    At the end of the midterms, they still had $40 million left in the fund.

    Why wasn’t this money used in key states?

    232 out of 252 Midterm Races WON who had my Endorsement, and the Fake News is working overtime to try and create the most negative narrative possible. No, the REAL reasons were other than Trump, and I can name them ALL!

    Here are the facts:

    The Gateway Pundit reported:

    Open Secrets is an organization that tracks election funding to candidates, campaigns, and political organizations.

    According to Open Secrets the Senate Leadership Fund, the Republican Senate Super PAC, brought in $250 million this midterm election cycle.

    At the end of the cycle, the Senate Leadership Fund still had $40 million in its coffers

    Mitch McConnell left $50 million in his war chest and allowed good Republicans, Blake Masters and others, to fend for themselves.

    Who do you blame for the poor election results?

  7. J6 Jeremy Brown Trial Update: Mysterious CD Full of Classified Reports From Bergdahl Case Emerges During Trial

    As reported earlier by The Gateway Pundit, the Jeremy Brown Trial taking place at the Middle District Court in Tampa, FL is controversial at best.

    The attorney for Jeremy Brown, Mr. Richard Futerman, alleged on Wednesday that the FBI “planted” evidence in this case during his opening statements

    The accusation is understandable when the chain of custody and documentation of evidence presented at the trial is so atrocious.

    The military grade M67 grenades found in Brown’s RV during the raid can only be tracked by lot number and where they’ve been, not the dates that they were there.

    They also found human hair, dog hair, and textile fibers stuck to the tape on the grenades that had allegedly been in Brown’s possession for months, since Jan. 6, 2021, but none of the hairs or fibers matched Brown, Brown’s dog, or the carpet samples taken from his RV nor his girlfriend’s home.

    The DNA found on the tape of one of the grenades was of two males but neither of the samples belonged to Jeremy Brown.

    On Wednesday, US political prisoner Ryan Samsel called The Gateway Pundit to tell us he has lost his phone privileges for six months starting tomorrow. The prison staff is outraged that The Gateway Pundit has exposed his horribly abusive story to the American public. Ryan, who has not even had his case tried in court and has sat in prison for nearly two years, has been beaten, hogtied, abused, tied to a chair for 12 hours, and denied medical treatment for his injuries and his precancerous growths.

    On March 21, 2021, after his arrest, Ryan was awakened by correctional officers and his hands were zip-tied. Then they walked him to an unoccupied cell where he was brutally beaten by the officers. Ryan Samsel lost an eye in the beating. His face was smashed. The next day the guards beat him again.

    The strike is over the fact that no agreement has been reached between the New York Times and the New York Times Guild. Around 40 bargaining sessions have already taken place.

  11. Illinois Signs Its Own Death Warrant – Starting in January New Gov. Pritzker Signed Law Takes Effect – Total Mayhem Follows
    By Joe Hoft
    Published December 8, 2022 at 11:00am
    Comment

    The “Land of Lincoln” – the state of Illinois has signed its own death warrant. This will be the end of the state.

    Crime under the Biden Administration is at record highs. In major US cities, crime is skyrocketing. Chicago is one of the worst. This great American city is a disaster.

    Every week horrible stories and statistics are reported in the state and especially in Chicago.

    Chicago’s crazy Mayor Lori Lightfoot blames the record surge in crimes in the city on the retailers in the city. Violent crime is up to 30-year highs and this is her response?

    Someone tell nutty Lightfoot that it’s not the retail stores. It never was. This is like telling the rape victim that it was her fault she wore a dress. This is sick.

    The Democrats don’t really have an answer to growing crime. They don’t care about Americans suffering. There is no way that they could with the insane policies that they are behind.

    This is evident in what is coming to Illinois in the new year. The Democrat billionaire running the state, Pritzker signed a bill that takes effect in 2023. This bill will totally destroy the state.

    HotAir reported:

    Just weeks before the hugely controversial SAFE-T Act was set to go into effect as law in Illinois on 1 Jan, Gov J.B. Pritzker signed a package of revisions to the bill. The changes address and clarify some of the remaining problematic aspects of the original legislation, which had been amended three times previously…

    …The way it stood written originally, police could not arrest and remove an individual on another person’s property for trespassing. Nor could a judge be sure if he had the authority to hold someone charged with 2d degree murder…

    Some of these issues were supposedly addressed in this latest version of the law but it’s unclear. In the future, a judge cannot charge “unaffordable” bail on defendants. This vehicle has been used to keep violent offenders off of the street. Now the judge must let them go. Multiple scenarios are available now that would enable violent criminals to be set free almost immediately to commit the same crimes again.

    Democrats and RINOs are behind the destruction of this great country and the goodness of America. This is their life’s mission.

  13. WAYNE ROOT: It’s All Rigged Like Pro Wrestling: If You Think Kari Lake, Dr. Oz and Herschel Walker Lost without a Rigged Election, You’re an Idiot

    We now know for a fact 2020 was rigged and stolen. By a collusion of Big government, Big Tech and in particular, the FBI, who together held weekly meetings to suppress any information beneficial to Trump, and any stories harmful to Biden. They blacked out any mention of Biden’s corruption, his clear case of dementia, and in particular, the Hunter laptop scandal.

    Advertisement

    The emails released by Elon Musk prove the FBI ordered Twitter (and other social media companies) to fix and rig the election against Trump. You can bet the FBI held the same meetings and gave the same orders to the mainstream media.

    The 2020 election was rigged and stolen- exactly as so many of us warned and reported, while being called “election deniers” and “conspiracy theorists.”

    The 2020 election was rigged and stolen- exactly as so many of us warned and reported, while being called “election deniers” and “conspiracy theorists.”

    In other words, I told you so.

    And now I’m telling you again. Our elections are still being rigged and stolen. The Georgia US Senate election is Exhibit A. I’ve predicted for two weeks now that Herschel Walker didn’t stand a chance of winning. Because Georgia is rigged.

    Raphael Warnock is literally a radical Marxist. He hates America. He allegedly abused and beat his ex-wife (actually worse, according to her testimony). He defended the anti-American, racist and anti-Semitic rantings of Rev Jeremiah Wright.

    Yet we are to believe he beat Herschel Walker in a Southern State, in an environment of the worst inflation, crime and open borders in our country’s history- all produced directly by Democrats who aren’t even as radical as Warnock. Really?

    It all makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? And I have a bridge to sell you, in Vegas, over the Atlantic Ocean.

    You’re being gaslighted. This is all B.S.

    This is like the WWE. Scripted. Georgia shouldn’t shock you. The same things happened in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Michigan, Wisconsin and Nevada weren’t much different. It’s just that the Republican losses in those states weren’t quite as shocking.

    These are the same six battleground states that were dirty, rigged and stolen in 2020. Nothing has changed. Rinse and repeat.

    No one stopped them the first time. No one punished them. They used Covid to introduce mass mail-in ballots, ballot drop boxes, and ballot harvesting- among many other tricks of the trade. Nothing has changed.

    Worse, illegal money from China is clearly funding the Democrats- who are so awash in campaign cash they can outspend Republicans 10 to 1 with TV ads. Then there’s the matter of illegal aliens voting in any state that awards them drivers licenses. And of course, Big Tech once again suppressing any news damaging to Democrats. Mitch McConnell is against our own candidates. The FBI and every government agency works overtime to rig elections against Republicans. It’s an unbeatable combination. It’s the same suspects. Rinse and repeat.

    But your base- the middle class- can’t live, can’t survive. They’re being destroyed by inflation, gas, electric bills, groceries, rent, college costs, crime and open borders. Not to mention transgender brainwashing and vaccine mandates.

    And in face of all of that, you really want us to believe the people are voting for extremist Marxist Democrats?

    Why do Marxist Democrats like Warnock have so much more money than our candidates? You never thought to ask that question? Why did Warnock have $24 million just from 300,000+ donors who claim to be “unemployed?” No one thinks that might be China’s money illegally influencing a US election? Is anyone investigating? Of course not. Every prosecutor in USA is too busy framing Trump.

    I’ve heard the GOP excuses. Walker was “a bad candidate.” But what’s the excuse for Kari Lake? She was perhaps the best GOP candidate ever, in a state with a huge GOP voter registration advantage. She had a double digit lead the day before the election. And she lost to the Secretary of State who oversees the voting. No problem there.

    And if it’s about bad candidates, then how come brain- damaged John Fetterman won in Pennsylvania? The excuse doesn’t hold up.

    The answer is bad candidates don’t matter, if a state is rigged with mail-in ballots and ballot drop boxes. And if Twitter and Facebook influence every news item against you. And if the media ignores the corruption, crimes and communist views of Democrat candidates. And if you’re able to raise $100 million from the Chinese Communist Party.

    Just study Florida. It’s not about good or bad candidates. It’s about strict voting laws that don’t allow mail-in ballots, ballot drop boxes, ballot harvesting, and 100 other forms of voter fraud that Democrats specialize in. All the same fraud that just went on in Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania.

    It’s an exact repeat of 2020. And no one in GOP leadership says a thing. We are screwed in 2024. We cannot win. And the base knows it. You’ve allowed Democrats and China to steal our nation.

    In the end, we don’t blame communists masquerading as Democrats. We don’t blame rigged and stolen elections. We don’t blame mail-in ballots.

    We blame the GOP leadership.

    Because it’s clear to anyone without an Ivy League education that they’re either fools and morons; or cowards scared of what the media thinks; or playing for the other side.

    It’s simply impossible Democrats are winning these important races in today’s environment- with working class and middle class Americans struggling to survive.
    We can smell a rat. The fix is in.

  14. Democrat Crime Policies Pave The Way For Destroying Constitutional Rights
    By Frank Liberato
    The Democrats’ habit of encouraging criminal lawlessness is not merely intended to terrorize the population. Instead, by removing any accountability for lawless or destructive acts, leftists are making it possible for them to erase both the First and Second Amendments. Thus, by creating an environment in which it appears that the First and Second Amendments are destructive, they can justify prohibiting those rights.

    Elon Musk’s recent disclosure of the “Twitter papers” reveals little that we didn’t already know to be true about Twitter censoring conservatives and undermining elections at the behest of government agencies and officials. This behavior reveals unequivocally how leftists see the Constitution as an obstacle. The danger to their political power arises when people are free to express and protect themselves. Ultimately, what leftists perceive as the most serious “threat to democracy” is the Bill of Rights itself, especially the first two amendments (speech and the right to bear arms).

    Leftist claims to the contrary, the right to speak freely and defend yourself is the essence of democracy. Voting is an act of free expression, and an armed population preserves that right. How liberals can justify their blatant inversion of this reality is anyone’s guess. So far, they haven’t had to.

    The parroted phrase du jour is that “the First Amendment is not absolute.” Nothing could be further from the truth. If they were to tear down the country tomorrow, the rights enshrined by the Constitution would continue to flourish. We have now and forever codified the rights handed down to us by our Creator.

    The individual’s supremacy over the state, like any new technology, can be restricted or banned, but it can never be eradicated from the public square. The Genie is out of the bottle, and it is now eternally alive in human affairs. Where people fight for their freedom, they often wave the American flag as the enduring symbol of those rights. Even without the flag, the country, or the document, the rights will live on.

    We are told that the First Amendment must be restricted due to the prevalence of “misinformation” and “hate speech.” These are, however, the very things the First Amendment was intended to protect.

    “Misinformation” is simply speech that those in power don’t like. People who disagree with the prevailing narrative have as much right to be heard as anyone else. Likewise, one person’s “hate speech” is another person’s love speech.

    Without this context, the First Amendment is meaningless. We can’t allow only approved discourse and then call it freedom of speech. But that’s been the plan at Twitter and every other tech outlet since 2016—and it has largely been unopposed until Elon Musk stepped in and upended the Democrats’ reign of terror and lawlessness.

    What part of “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech,” do they think is not absolute? Their primary defense is the old saw that “you can’t yell fire in a crowded theater.”

    In fact, you can falsely yell “fire” in a crowded theater. You have a constitutional right to do so. But if you do, you must understand that you are responsible for the consequences of your actions. If people get hurt, you are responsible. If there is property damage, you are responsible. If there’s a loss of any kind, you’re responsible.

    The problem lies with our failure to hold the individual who “yells fire in a crowded theater” accountable for whatever damage that falsehood caused. If we did hold people accountable, no sane person would yell “fire.” Almost everyone would understand that they are responsible for their actions.

    In the last two decades, our culture has drifted very far away from this basic principle. A great many people now believe (correctly) that they can do whatever they want with impunity. They do not have to take responsibility. They can rob stores in plain sight. They can commit acts of violence. They can burn down city blocks. None of it matters to the authorities and, if they are arrested, they are often released without posting bail. Recidivism is quick and costly.

    Instead of prosecuting criminals, our governments (federal and state) prosecute and persecute those people who are exercising their First Amendment right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The criminal walks away while the law-abiding citizen gets thrown in solitary confinement without constitutional rights.

    Much that has changed for the worse in our society can be traced back to this one principle. The incremental loss of freedom and the rise of the nanny state have the same root cause. There is no responsibility. No one is held accountable.

    Once upon a time, Americans could visit any of our public beaches and enjoy an adult beverage. Not anymore. Because of our failure to punish those who abuse the privilege, we can no longer enjoy that simple pleasure. Accountability for public drunkenness would solve the problem. Instead, we punish our entire population with the loss of privileges and rights. So many areas of our society have suffered a similar fate. The long-term result is that we punish law-abiding citizens and reward criminals.

    The Second Amendment is under siege as well. The global elites know that only one heavily armed country stands in the way of their evil plans. If they can somehow undermine gun rights in America, then the insectivore diet will not be far behind.

    They are the First and Second Amendments by design. Freedom of speech and the right to keep and bear arms are the most important precepts to the survival of liberty. That is why they are under attack by the left. Modern liberals have no desire to preserve freedom. They can and have done a great deal of damage with their incoherent authoritarian philosophy, but the constitution is now etched in “stone,” and whatever they throw up against it will eventually shatter into pieces. Perhaps not fast enough, but eventually.

  15. DAILY MAIL – FDA approves unpopular bivalent Covid shot for BABIES and ‘encourages parents to get their child vaccinated before the holidays’

    Agency green-lit plans for updated shot to be given as part of three-dose course

    Children aged six months to four years will get bivalent as their third mini dose

    Yet the booster shots are very unpopular among adults – with uptake at just 13%

    ——————————————

    US health officials today approved Pfizer and Moderna’s bivalent Covid vaccines for babies, in a move bound to draw criticism.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has green-lit plans for the updated shots to be given as part of a three-dose course for children aged six months to four years.

    Agency officials said they ‘encourage parents and caregivers’ to get their child vaccinated ‘especially as we head into the holidays and winter months’.

    It comes after a study found the bivalent vaccines are significantly weaker against a rising Covid variant expected to become dominant in the US in months.

    Pre-school-aged children were already allowed to receive three extra-small doses of Pfizer’s original Covid vaccine, instead of the standard two-dose regimen for adults.

    The move will see them given the Omicron-specific booster – made by either Pfizer of Moderna – as their third and final shot.

    Officials recommend the children to receive the bivalent shot from the same brand they received their first two vaccine shots from.

    So a child who receive the Pfizer vaccine for their first two doses should get the Pfizer bivalent shot as well.

    FDA Commissioner Robert Califf said: ‘More children now have the opportunity to update their protection against COVID-19 with a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.

    ‘And we encourage parents and caregivers of those eligible to consider doing so – especially as we head into the holidays and winter months where more time will be spent indoors.

    ‘As this virus has changed, and immunity from previous COVID-19 vaccination wanes, the more people who keep up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations, the more benefit there will be for individuals, families and public health by helping prevent severe illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.’

    The move comes despite the bivalent shots proving highly unpopular among even adult Americans.

    Only 40million have received the shot – tailored specifically to the Omicron variant – which is the equivalent of 13 percent of the US population.

    The shots have been even less popular among parents with children under five. Only 9.3 percent of those aged two to four have received at least one vaccine dose, and 4.6 percent have completed their vaccine series.

    For children under two, only 6.4 percent have gotten their primary shot and 2.7 percent all three.

    Covid is not a major threat to young children, though. The CDC reports 1,378 deaths among minors in America, with more than half suffering from a pre-existing condition.

    In a nation that has suffered over 1million Covid deaths, only 0.01 percent have been in children.

    Children under five are also at a significantly lower risk than those in their late teens, meaning they likely make up an even lower portion of overall deaths.

    Officials believe the new vaccine offers higher protection than the original vaccines that were designed for the first Covid strain out of Wuhan and got significantly weaker as the virus mutated.

    Dr Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said: ‘Vaccines remain the best defense against the most devastating consequences of disease caused by the currently circulating omicron variant, such as hospitalization and death.

    ‘Based on available data, the updated, bivalent vaccines are expected to provide increased protection against COVID-19.

    ‘Parents and caregivers can be assured that the FDA has taken a great deal of care in our review, and we encourage parents of children of any age who are eligible for primary vaccination or a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine booster dose to consider seeking vaccination now as it can potentially help protect them from COVID-19 during a time when cases are increasing.’

    Pfizer has countersued Moderna after being accused of stealing mRNA technology to create the Covid vaccine.

    The ongoing legal battle now sees Pfizer and its partner BioNTech reject its rival’s claims it copied the shot.

    Pfizer has accused Moderna of rewriting history, and dubbed its lawsuit ‘revisionist history’.

    Manhattan-based Pfizer requested from a federal court in Boston that Moderna’s lawsuit be dismissed.

    Pfizer and its German partner, BioNTech, fired back at Moderna on Monday in a patent lawsuit over their rival Covid-19 vaccines.

    They are seeking dismissal of the lawsuit in Boston federal court and an order that Moderna’s patents are invalid and not infringed.

    Moderna first sued Pfizer in August, when it accused the company of violating its rights in three patents related to innovations that Moderna said it pioneered before the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Moderna has also filed a related lawsuit against Pfizer and BioNTech in Germany. All three companies are also embroiled in US patent disputes with other companies over the vaccines.

    A Pfizer spokesperson said the company and BioNTech are confident in their intellectual property and will ‘vigorously defend’ against Moderna’s claims.

    In its lawsuit, Moderna asked for an undisclosed amount of money damages from Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines sold since March.

    Pfizer’s vaccine made over $26.4 billion for the New York-based company in the first nine months of 2022, according to company filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Meanwhile, Moderna sold over $13.5 billion worth of its vaccine over the same period.

    Pfizer and BioNTech said in their Monday filing that they developed their vaccine independently, calling Moderna’s lawsuit ‘revisionist history’ and arguing its patents ‘far exceed its actual contributions to the field’.

    The companies argued that Moderna ignored the contributions of their scientists to foundational mRNA technology, as well as those of researchers at the US government’s National Institutes of Health.

    Moderna also waived its right to bring the lawsuit when it pledged not to sue other Covid-19 vaccine makers during the pandemic, the filing said, arguing the pandemic has not yet ended.

    • Denmark’s health authority scaps isolation guidelines for Covid-19

      The Danish Health Authority no longer recommends isolation following a positive Covid-19 test.

      In a statement, the Health Authority said on Thursday that Covid-19 is no longer considered to have any special status compared to other illnesses, and that isolation is therefore no longer required following a positive test.

      “We can now take even more steps towards normal conditions in relation to the Covid-19 response in both the community and the health service,” the Health Authority’s acting head of department Line Raahauge Hvass said in the statement.

      “There is no longer any need for very specific requirements for Covid-19 in relation to other diseases, for example for a person with a positive Covid-19 test to isolate for at least four days,” she said.

      The Health Authority still recommends staying home if you are ill, however. This is to help prevent the spread of both Covid-19 and influenza.

      It is important to “prevent infection with all types of respiratory infections, because influenza can also cause serious illness for elderly and chronically ill people and put strain on the health service,” Hvass said.

      “You should stay home if you are sick – regardless of whether you think it’s Covid-19, influenza, or another respiratory infection,” she said.

      The change in Health Authority guidelines also means the end of standardised Covid-19 testing for all people admitted to hospital.

      Denmark’s vaccination programme for Covid-19 remains unchanged, with all people over the age of 50 offered a booster or “fourth dose” of the vaccine this winter.

      People under 50 can also be offered vaccination if they are in risk groups for serious illness.

      Those not eligible for the booster can still receive one under a paid scheme.

    Today’s Democrats can be seen as the new British circa 1776. These new Redcoats (ironic) are tyrannical, big-government, pro-king types.

    “Jan. 6,” seen in its true light, was — or should have been — a modern-day Lexington and Concord. Think about it. Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed civilian (and veteran), was shot dead by a jittery government officer for no defensible reason whatsoever while protesting governmental authorities’ casual, sneering, and ubiquitous dismissal of the concerns of those they are supposed to represent and protect.

    It’s no wonder Democrats disdain the Founders and the Gadsden Flag, etc., etc. Most of them would have favored the mandatory quartering of the king’s men in colonists’ homes, believing that would show the dangerously radical, limited-government, infuriatingly independent America-First backward rubes from the hinterlands that resistance is futile. They would have been for the Stamp Act. And the tax on tea. And all of the policies the soon-to-be Americans derisively labeled the “Intolerable Acts.”

    Taxation without representation? Democrats never met a tax they didn’t like and have no problem taxing people without representing them. This is true in so many ways, whether it be via part of workers’ mandatory union dues being given to only one party or in going against the majority of people’s wishes on border, energy, and crime policies. Democrats would have sided with the effete, elitist, tea-drinking fops from large English cities against the musket-armed semi-savages in tattered clothing who hailed from the backwoods of what would become America.

    The difference between then and now is that the Founders — and the early “deplorables” they represented — had the courage to stand up for what they believed no matter what, going so far as to pledge “their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” to achieve justice and freedom.

    By contrast, most of today’s Republicans, as evidenced by the likes of Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Adam Kinzinger — and a vast array of other RINOs and invertebrates — prefer pre-emptively surrendering, even when the odds favor them, to engaging in pitched political battle with their ideological foes. This is truly remarkable when one realizes that those on the left have no answers, no real solutions, and actually want to destroy the United States and everything it once stood for. Most Democrats still realize they have to sort of hide these facts. Therefore, they pre-emptively, proactively accuse Republicans of doing — or wishing to do — what they themselves are doing — or planning to do. Like destroying “our democracy.”

    “Democratic-Socialists” cannot win a serious, legitimate debate, so they point at Republicans, especially “MAGA” ones, and scream, “Bigot! Homophobe! Transphobe! Racist!” They are like worked-up monkeys screeching and flinging rhetorical feces at anyone who has the temerity to disagree, no matter how slightly, with any part of their anti-American, anti-Christian, hetero-phobic agenda, and their oddly binary “Democrats good, Republicans bad” worldview

    Tragically, the vast majority of those they slander and verbally assault essentially allow them to get away with it, which, to me, is mind-boggling. And in the rare instances when non-woke non-Marxists defend themselves and fight back, Democrats and their wholly owned propagandists in the mainstream media immediately brand them as violent “far-right” hate-mongers who are constantly looking for any opportunity to unjustly assault their foes…and those in “marginalized and underserved” communities.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the most important thing to know about Democrats like Adam Schiff, Peter Strzok, John Brennan, and Nancy Pelosi is that they are brilliant at being evil. This should be obvious. Anyone who repeatedly lies with gusto, glee, and impunity to further his own twisted agenda, or who destroys a copy of a president’s speech on national television for the sheer perverse joy of it — everyone else and all decorum and traditions be damned — is worse than a scoundrel.

    So is there a viable way forward for conservatives to prevail…at offering less to their potential constituency? Yes, but, at a minimum, conservatives need to strive to be at least adequate at defending themselves and their easily defensible ideas. Moreover, they need to learn to go on offense, all of the time, and call out their opponents for what they are.

    And even this is not enough. They need to clearly and proudly state what they are for and what they will do when in office. And then never break those promises. Ever. No matter what.

    We need a revival of the Spirit of ’76, a commitment to self-determination and individual liberty. Because, as John Adams noted, “liberty once lost is lost forever.”

  20. The two attacks on Portland’s electrical substations were pre-meditated, officials said, as other states are on ‘high alert’ after Washington and North Carolina were also targeted.

    Portland officials say state-wide attacks on electrical substations were deliberate: SEVEN plants across America are sabotaged amid suspicion it’s a right-wing protest over drag events

    Officials in Oregon are still probing the Thanksgiving electrical attacks at Portland General Electric and Bonneville Power Administration in Clackamas County.

    total, at least seven attacks have been recorded in the US in recent weeks. In North Carolina, the FBI is currently investigating if their grid attacks were triggered by opponents of a drag show.

    ‘We have confirmed that this was malicious intent, it was no accident,’ Doug Johnson, a BPA spokesperson told KATU news.

    About 106 attacks on the electrical grid in the US have been reported from January to August of this year – and there have been close to 600 since 2014, according to NBC.

    BPA has increased security measures to prevent additional attacks on their system following the wave of ambushes recently.

    ‘We actually have increased security around substations in the area just as a precaution to ratchet that up from what we typically do,’ Johnson told the news outlet.

    Johnson previously said the BPA is working with the FBI on the incident and has ‘encouraged other utilities throughout the region to increase their vigilance and report any suspicious or similar activity to law enforcement.’

    The FBI would not confirm or deny that it is investigating the attacks, though the companies said they are cooperating with a federal investigation.

    Since the murder of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini from injuries sustained at the hands of regime thugs after her arrest for the “improper” wearing of a hijab, Iran has been engulfed in massive protests against the government.

    Iranian men and women have continued to protest against the regime’s brutality and have paid the price for daring to speak up. Protestors have faced being fired on with an AK-47 , firing indiscriminately on protesters in the street from their moving vehicles, the murder of Hadis Najafi , a powerful symbol of the uprisings, the kidnapping, torture, rape and murder of Nika Shakarimi, and a woman being dragged by police and sexually assaulted by a gang of Islamic Republic oppressive forces.

      A sister of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has declared her opposition to her brother’s regime, according to a letter shared by her son, Mahmoud Moradkhani, on Wednesday.

      “I think it is appropriate now to declare that I oppose my brother’s actions and I express my sympathy with all mothers mourning the crimes of the Islamic Republic regime,” wrote Badri Hosseini Khamenei, who lives in Iran.

      “Ali Khamenei’s Revolutionary Guards and mercenaries should lay down their weapons as soon as possible and join the people before it is too late.”

      “The people of Iran deserve freedom and prosperity, and their uprising is legitimate and necessary to achieve their rights. I hope to see the victory of the people and the overthrow of this tyranny ruling Iran soon. I believe that the regime of the Islamic Republic of Khomeini and Ali Khamenei has brought nothing but suffering and oppression to Iran and Iranians.”

      Last month, authorities arrested Badri Khamenei’s daughter, Farideh Moradkhani, after she declared her support for the protests.

    U.S. Base in Kuwait Adapts to Iran’s Aerial Threat

    A sign warning troops about the aerial drones now used by U.S. rivals in the Middle East greets arrivals to Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait, a key American military transit hub. “When you see a drone, call security forces immediately,” it says in all caps at the inprocessing building. Iran’s robust drone and missile systems are forcing the U.S. and its allies to bolster their air defense systems.

    A $2.4 million project aims to renovate the base’s air raid bunkers, drawing lessons from a Jan. 8, 2020, attack on U.S. troops in Iraq, said Lt.-Col. Tito Ruiz, security forces commander for the 386th Air Expeditionary Wing. An Iranian missile attack at Al Asad Air Base caused more than 100 traumatic brain injuries that were tied to blast waves, which echoed and were amplified throughout the bunkers.

    Army engineers have designed new bunkers for forward bases, with steel doors on both ends, which they say will reduce the peak pressures of blast waves from missile strikes by 90%.

    As Russia’s weapons systems run low in its war in Ukraine, evidence is mounting from attack wreckage of rebadged Iranian-manufactured combat, kamikaze, and reconnaissance drones, as well as surface-to-surface ballistic missiles. Trainers from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps have been sent to Crimea to train Russians to use the munitions, according to U.S. officials.

    Russia has consistently shielded Iran from the full force of U.S., EU, and UN ire over Tehran’s reprobate geopolitical actions. Now Iran gets to return the favor.

    Iran is testing its latest military technology through Russia in Ukraine. Russia’s use of Iranian weapons serves to vividly display Iran’s deadly technology for prospective buyers.

    While at least half of Iran-supplied drones and missiles are shot down by Ukrainian defenses, Iranian manufacturers and operators are becoming more skilled with each deployment, and what better endorsement for Iranian munitions than their adoption by the armed forces of a global power.

  26. The Meaning of the Palestinian Focus on “Nakba Day”

    The decision of the UN General Assembly to mark the Palestinian Nakba Day (“catastrophe”) is actually a decision to mourn the establishment of the State of Israel. It reflects why Israel never succeeded in signing a peace agreement with the Palestinians.

    Nakba Day was not intended to mark the alleged humanitarian disaster that befell the Palestinian people in the 1948 war, but rather the fact of Jews gaining independence.

    The thought that 600,000 Jews managed to defeat 60 million Muslim Arabs at the time was and still is unimaginable to the Arabs. This is the greatest humiliation, the source of the frustration, rage, and violence directed toward the State of Israel. This is the true meaning of “nakba,” the disaster of the Jews’ success to declare a state despite all the efforts by the Arabs to prevent them from doing so.

    The fact that Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15 – the date of the declaration of Israel’s independence – is a clear indication of this.

    The settlements were not on the agenda at the time of the War of Independence. The Arabs saw the establishment of Israel as a “nakba.” Even when they were offered an independent Palestinian state with a capital in east Jerusalem, the Palestinians turned it down.

    The explanation for this is that the war for Israel’s existence is still ongoing for them. It’s not Israel’s alleged occupation that is the problem for the Palestinians, but its very existence.

  28. Video: Tobacco plant genetically modified to produce cocaine
    Fiona Jackson | Daily Mail (UK) | November 29, 2022

    tobacco plant relative called Nicotiana benthamiana has been genetically modified to produce cocaine in its leaves.

    Cocaine is produced naturally in the leaves of the Erythroxylum coca plant, and scientists set out to recreate this process in N. benthamiana.

    A team from the Kunming Institute of Botany in China altered N. benthamiana to produce two enzymes that generate cocaine when its leaves are dried.

    The breakthrough could lead to a way to manufacture cocaine, or produce chemically similar compounds for medicinal purposes.

    While cocaine is notorious as an illegal drug, it has also been used in medical practices as a local anaesthetic or to narrow blood vessels to stem bleeding.

    However, pharmaceutical companies are limited in ways they can produce the drug, as key steps in its biosynthesis have remained a mystery.

    In their paper, published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, the scientists finally discovered what was missing.

    Two enzymes, EnCYP81AN15 and EnMT4, are essential for this conversion reaction to form methylecgonone.

    Joseph Bruno, Dean of Students at Francis W. Parker School in Chicago told an undercover PV journalist that the coolest part of his job is watching minor students play with butt plugs and show interest in various sex toys.

  30. Not the Onion.
    The UN envoy to Hamas

    Recently, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Palestinian Territories, Francesca Albanese, spoke via Zoom to a Hamas-organized conference in Gaza, during which she openly supported and incited violence, stating, “you have a right to resist this occupation.”

    Despite having said this on camera, she later turned to Twitter and denied saying it. It’s as though she forgot that the event was recorded.

    One minute she’s an international attorney, supposedly acting as an impartial representative of the UN, and the next minute she’s promoting violence amongst Hamas terrorists and advising them that their path of terror is a righteous one.

    Special Counsel Jack Smith issued subpoenas to secretaries of state in Michigan and Arizona as he expands his fishing expedition.

    The subpoenas were issued to Jocelyn Benson and Katie Hobbs as part of Jack Smith’s investigation into Trump’s effort to contest the 2020 election.

    ABC News reported:

    Jack Smith, the special counsel investigating efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, has sent additional grand jury subpoenas to the secretary of state’s offices in Michigan and Arizona — swing states targeted by former President Donald Trump and his allies after his loss in November 2020.

  32. Qatar Punctures FIFA’s Political Fantasy

    If the Qatar World Cup proved anything, it’s that sports and politics are inseparable Siamese twins joined at the hip.

    Politics popped up at every twist of the World Cup’s road, whether related to the right of freedom of expression of players, sports commentators and fans; anti-government protests in Iran; anti-Israeli sentiment among Qataris and Arabs; a backlash against Western, particularly German, critics of Qatar; or ultra-conservative religious rejection of soccer as a sport.

    Qatari efforts to stage manage the intrusion of regional politics ranged from picking and choosing which protests fit its foreign policy agenda, to seeking to ensure, where possible, that events elsewhere in the region would not overshadow or inflame passions during the World Cup.

    MEMRI: Australian Hizb ut-Tahrir Scholar: Qatar Is Going to Hell for Spending Muslims’ Money on World Cup

    Australian Hizb ut-Tahrir-affiliated Islamic scholar Mohammad Alwahwah said in a December 2, 2022 lecture in Sydney, Australia that on Judgement Day, Qatar will go to Hell because it has spent Muslim wealth on the World Cup instead of helping needy Muslims, financing Islamic armies, and liberating Palestine.

    He said that the da’wa at the World Cup does not justify the forbidden things that it entailed, such as alcohol sponsorships, bribery, and mistreatment of migrant workers. He also said that the Jews and Christians will never be happy with the Muslims until they abandon Islam, and he claimed that the greatest number of people converted to Islam as a result of Islamic “conquests and victories”.

    He explained that by waging these kinds of conquests, Muslims are “implementing the message of Islam” and bringing non-Muslim directly under Islamic rule. In addition, he told his audience to imagine how large the Muslims’ celebrations will be when Jerusalem is liberated and the caliphate is established. The video of the lecture was posted to the Hizb Media YouTube channel.

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday announced that the Florida Disaster Fund has raised $59.2 million for Hurricane Ian emergency relief, after claiming that the Biden administration denied funding assistance.

    $25 million came from the state of Florida, while donors provided $35.2 million, DeSantis’ office said in a press release. The state funds will be used to acquire building materials, while donations will enable “verified nonprofit organizations to conduct critical temporary repairs on homes damaged by Hurricane Ian,” according to the press release, and reported by the Daily Caller

  34. John-Paul Pagano:
    What Is a Conspiracy Theory?

    When I began studying Antisemitism two decades ago, one of the first things that occurred to me was its essential nature as a conspiracy theory. While mundane anti-Jewish bigotry is always found, the form of Jew-hatred that is historically salient identifies “the Jews” as a preternaturally powerful, secretive, evil elite which enslaves and exploits humankind.

    Even a surface examination of conspiracy theories shows that while the identity of the elite changes, this narrative outline is common to all of them. Alternately—and with good reason we will explore later—Antisemitism is sometimes singled out as the ultimate conspiracy theory.

    So we can better understand conspiracy theories if we widen our scope to include insights from the much larger literature on Antisemitism. The history of the “Longest Hatred” is an opportunity to examine more than a thousand years of the consistent social practice of a single conspiracy theory. In this vast and detailed record, we will detect patterns and peculiarities that expose the essence of the thing.

    Attorneys representing the Missouri and Louisiana AGs in their case against the government have uncovered that the State Department was funding fact checkers possibly in the US.

    TGP reported over the weekend that the FBI and DOJ were working with Big Tech to target conservatives. This was recently confirmed, although we have suspected this of taking place for years.

    The Gateway Pundit readers know that The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft is a co-Plaintiff, along with several doctors and a Louisiana news outlet, in Missouri and Louisiana lawsuit against the Biden Administration. The AGs of Missouri and Louisiana are suing the Biden Administration (Missouri, et al, v. Biden, et al), the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the DOJ, Jen Psaki, Anthony Fauci, Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, and other federal agents and agencies for colluding with Big Tech to censor Americans all across the nation.

  36. Strange…
    When a tweet is embedded in a farrr-rrright zionist blog I like, I see a warning:

    The following media includes potentially sensitive content.
    I have to click “view” – and it turns out to be some vile jooo-hate thing. Like for head-chopper content, or pedo junk.

    Does the warning have anything to do with the site posting the tweet? Sites popular with observant Jews, like jewishpress or theyeshivaworld, don’t feature secular clickbait anyway.

  37. INSURRECTION: Democrats Usurp Control of Pennsylvania House Despite GOP Holding the Majority

    Democratic cheating to win elections is ubiquitous and a tale old as time. The power grab they pulled off in Pennsylvania, though, marks new terrain.

    Rep. Joanna McClinton held a fraudulent ceremony Wednesday where Delaware County Judge Rick Lowe swore her in as Pennsylvania House Majority Leader. She based her hollow claim to power based on the Democrats “winning” 102 seats in the November midterms, the exact number needed to form a majority in a full chamber of 203 members.

    The problem besides the suspicious election results is Democrats only have 99 incoming members for the January 3rd legislative session. One general election candidate, Rep. Anthony DeLuca, “won” despite dying one month prior to the midterms. Rep. Austin Davis, the Lieutenant Governor-elect, and Rep. Summer Lee, who was elected to Congress, submitted their resignations on Wednesday.

    The Epoch Times acquired a legal opinion Thursday by the non-partisan Pennsylvania Legislative Reference Bureau. The document concluded the Democrats have no basis for a majority claim because they can only seat 101 members. Please note the Bureau issued their conclusion just after the Democrat resignations.
