Anthony Fauci
Nearly half of Americans, and a majority of young people, say Dr. Anthony Fauci should "resign his position and role" in the United States' COVID-19 response.

A new poll from Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action, provided exclusively to Morning Wire and released on Thursday, shows Fauci's flagging support among likely voters. The Trafalgar Group conducted a poll of 1,081 likely general election voters in the United States on January 12-14. The poll has a margin of error of 2.98%.

When asked "Do you believe Dr. Fauci should resign his position and role in leading the government's COVID-19 response to allow new leadership?" 46.3% of respondents said they believe Fauci should step aside. The other 53.7% of respondents said Fauci, who serves as chief White House medical adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, should remain in charge.

The bulk of Fauci's support comes from Democrats, according to the poll. About 83% of Democratic respondents said Fauci should keep his position while about 18% of Democrats want the federal government's chief medical expert to resign.

Democrats punt the other "Big Lie": Fuel doubts over the legitimacy of the coming elections

Biden wags his finger at those who believe voter ID is not racist
Napoleon Bonaparte once observed that "History is a set of lies agreed upon." The problem today is that there is little agreement on what the lies mean when lies attributed to one party are being used by the other party to achieve the same goal.

For months, President Biden, Democratic politicians, and some in the media have hammered away at "Trump's Big Lie" of the 2020 election. They insist that former President Trump began months before the election to plant a false narrative that changes in election laws were part of an effort to "steal" the election. However, in the last few weeks, Biden and others are pushing their own "Big Lie" that state election laws are now being changed to steal the 2022 and 2024 elections. What is most striking is how these claims are detached from the actual laws themselves — the power of this claim being based entirely upon its repetition rather than its foundation.

After the 2020 election, some of us expressed skepticism over the claims of widespread fraud but waited to see the evidence presented in court. That evidence never materialized and, while I predicted an effort to challenge the electoral votes two days after the election, I wrote that calls to challenge the certification of the election were unfounded factually and legally.

NewsReal: Ukraine Gambit - US Attempting to Destroy Russia

** This video is a reupload following technical difficulties during the livestream! **

In this week's NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss the almighty tensions building between the US and Russia over Ukraine, explaining that the key to understanding 'why this, and why now?' lies in American paranoia about increasing Russian economic and ideological influence in Europe as a whole.

The Americans and the British have been pumping weapons and 'advisors' into Ukraine for the last seven years, apparently with a view to helping Kiev recapture' the breakaway Donbass republics and Crimea, thereby forcing a military response from Russia, and providing the 'justification' the Anglo-Americans seek to, effectively, ban Russia from global trade - with disastrous economic ramifications for Europe and beyond.

Will war break out in some form? It's possible, and it depends on just how far beyond the pale the US regime has become. The greater threat to us all, however, is the global economic FUBAR that will result from the US regime pulling what amounts to a 'financial Samson Option' that - it hopes - will 'reset' the world back to 1945, when the USA stood tall amid an economic wasteland...

Switzerland latest country to suddenly drop vaccine passports, intends to keep 'other restrictions in place'

Swiss Health Minister Alain Berset speaks during a press conference on Covid-19 restrictions in Bern. December 3, 2021.
Swiss health minister Alain Berset has signaled that the Alpine nation's controversial use of a Covid-19 certificate system could soon be over since the public health response to the pandemic appeared to be "on the right track."

The document - which indicates whether a person has been vaccinated, tested or recovered from the coronavirus and determines entry into public venues - has been in use since July 2021. But Berset suggested on Saturday that the time may have come to do away with the system.


Comment: Unlike other countries in Europe whose politicians were much more enthusiastic in locking down their citizens, Switzerland was initially a bit more lax in its enforcement - although not as defiant as Sweden - and it may be that their system of direct democracy helped somewhat stave off the Pathocrats somewhat: Switzerland likely to hold vote on compulsory vaccination after 125,000 citizens sign petition for constitutional ban on mandates


"The certificate period seems to be almost at an end," Berset told the Schweiz am Wochenende newspaper, adding that the country looks to be "on the right track." But he warned that the "virus has shown itself to be unpredictable on several occasions."

Comment: It's extremely telling that much of the locked down planet is suddenly dropping restrictions that just a few weeks ago were deemed to be critical to the preservation of life.

That said, the contrived coronavirus crisis has done its job because most countries intend to hold on to the 'emergency' laws that grant them unprecedented powers, and it seems the establishment feel their Pavlovian conditioning has been successful enough that they're now able to roll out their dystopian digital IDs. Tellingly, a similar move is being made in the US but using the IRS, whereby citizens must submit a picture for their new facial recognition system in order to file their taxes:

Russia's gold & foreign currency reserves hit historic high

Russia's foreign exchange reserves surged by $7.7 billion last week, with its total holdings reaching a record $638.2 billion, according to the country's central bank.

From January 7 to 14, its international reserves grew by 1.2%, according to the latest data from the regulator. On January 7, their volume had amounted to $630.5 billion.

The surge was reported to be the result of planned purchases of foreign currencies and a positive market reassessment.

Comment: It's notable that the same countries that are banning the rather suspect cryptocurrencies are also loading up on gold (as well as mostly dumping US treasuries):

US Secretary Blinken's psychopathological incapacity to negotiate with Russia revealed through content analysis

No posting time has been indicated by the State Department. Watch Blinken read from a written script for the first six and a half minutes of his 29 and a half-minute briefing.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed publicly in Geneva on Friday, January 21, that he will not negotiate a no-war agreement with the Russians because he cannot. This is already understood by the Russians; by the French and Germans; and by several senior officials of the Biden Administration.

The evidence of Blinken's incapacity is in the words he says.

It was during the last world war, when US policymakers had next to no intelligence on how their German counterparts were thinking and what they were intending, that a group of American sociologists were engaged by the War Department, as the Pentagon was called then, to do what was called content analysis of German propaganda. One of the sociologists, a Russian émigré Nathan Leites, went on to apply the same method to Soviet publications in order to uncover what Leites called the operational code of the Politburo. That was in 1951. It was immediately used by US negotiators during the Korean War armistice negotiations which began in July of that year and ran for two years. By then Leites had produced a sequel, A Study of Bolshevism. Both were paid for and published by RAND, the think-tank created in 1945 by the US Air Force, the Douglas Aircraft Company, and the War Department.

Comment: And the West's position of pathological belligerence is also reflected in their actions. Meanwhile Russia along with its multilateral allies are showing through an array of drills, meetings and deals that they are willing to work together to neutralise the threat that the increasingly desperate US and its allies pose to world stability: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Kazakhstan on Fire: Why US vs Russia 'Great Game' Could Spark Global Economic Collapse

Alberta Canada inadvertently published (and quickly deleted) health data revealing that MORE THAN HALF of vaccinated deaths have been counted as UNVACCINATED

In yet another absolute bombshell revelation the government of Alberta, Canada exposed itself this week when it accidentally published damning evidence that exposes how the public health authorities have been manipulating the Covid-19 statistics.

After seemingly realizing what it had just done, the corrupt Canadian province quickly scrambled to delete the incriminating data off their website, but, thanks to internet sleuths like Twitter user Metatron - and his substack post, we have the receipts.


Comment: They've been fudging the numbers from the very beginning of this "pandemic," but this little slip on their part really reveals just how egregious their manipulations are. And make no mistake - this isn't isolated to Alberta.

The British Embassy in Ukraine announced that it will withdraw some staffers from Kiev.
London has commenced withdrawing diplomatic staff amid fears that a Russian invasion of Ukraine is imminent.

Britain has ordered the withdrawal of staff from its embassy in Kiev "in response to growing threat" from Moscow, as tensions on the Ukrainian-Russian border continue to remain high amid Western fears that the Kremlin is planning an invasion.

In an update published on the website of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), it was revealed that London has opted to "temporarily" withdraw some staff and their dependants from Kiev, noting that the embassy would remain open and continue providing assistance to British nationals in Ukraine.

'Pandemic' narrative over - false flag in Ukraine next?

During the past week, the world has looked on as the now two-year long COVID-19 mainstream media narrative collapsed almost instantaneously.

In timing that cannot be described as anything less than suspect, in the same week that the World Economic Forum held its virtual Davos Agenda event, Ireland and Britain announced the sudden and immediate ending of virtually all Covid measures and the World Health Organisation called for the end of Covid-related travel restrictions, with the organisation also stating that the end of the 'Pandemic' may be in sight, in stark contrast to a recent announcement that such a prediction was premature.

With the theme of the World Economic Forum's 2022 annual summit meeting, due to be held in May and the first in-person meeting of the forum since 2019, being 'Working Together, Restoring Trust' the optimistic among us may say that there has been an acceptance amongst the global elite that the growing awareness worldwide of the corporate power-grab over public life that the past two years has entailed, as well as the steady march towards a digital ID system as envisaged in Klaus Schwab's concept of the fourth industrial revolution via the use of vaccine passports, has become so widespread that it is no longer feasible to continue the current COVID-19 media narrative.

However, the sudden dropping of COVID-19 by the corporate media also presents the opportune moment to immediately switch its focus to something else - a possibly imminent false flag attack in Ukraine, used as a pretext for the Western-backed Kiev government to launch an attack on the breakaway pro-Russian republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in the east of the country, thus triggering an armed conflict between Ukraine and Moscow, one that has the strong possibility for worldwide ramifications.

Anti-lockdown protesters smash EU diplomatic service HQ in Brussels

Anti-lockdown protesters smash EU diplomatic service HQ
Fierce clashes between protesters and police in Brussels saw damage dealt to the European External Action Service building.

Chaotic scenes unfolded on the streets of the Belgian capital, Brussels, on Sunday, as thousands of protesters joined a mass march against Covid-19 health passes and other restrictions introduced by European governments in the name of combating the pandemic.

Videos captured by RT France journalist Charles Baudry showed white-helmeted police officers in riot gear blocking streets with barricades and deploying water cannons to disperse the crowds. All the while, black-clad masked protesters were pelting the police with various projectiles, including planks they had apparently acquired from demolishing a café's terrace.

Comment: Note the distinct difference between the people marching and those destroying private property and clashing with the police. 'Professional agitators' comes to mind.
