'Rules for thee, but not for me': Here's a list of lawmakers who broke COVID rules

Lawmakers have mandated a variety of COVID restrictions to stem the spread of the pandemic, but not all lawmakers have been willing to follow the rules.

Governors, mayors and state health departments have required that Americans wear masks, social distance, refrain from spending time in large groups, quarantine after traveling across state lines, stay home from church services and much more.

But many political leaders and members of their families have failed to comply with social distancing rules. Here's a list of lawmakers who appeared to dodge coronavirus-related restrictions.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi attended a hair appointment in San Francisco Monday, though indoor hair salons in the California city are currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News reported.

America is not 'back' with Biden. He's just the new mask of respectability as it continues to cause chaos across the world

Joe Biden

Joe Biden
While Joe Biden is a more civil representation of the US than Donald Trump, he won't significantly change the foreign policy of the outgoing president. America will still be hyper-aggressive, but in a more courteous way.

"America is back!" said Joe Biden this week, as he prepares to take over as president. It's a sentiment that has, of course, been championed by liberals, but what exactly does it mean? And did America ever really go away?

If you ask any critic of Donald Trump, the answer is quite obvious. They will point to his erratic behaviour, his negation of alliances, his apparent abrogation of leadership and the damage he has done to America's standing around the world. Biden, of course, has pledged to end all of that, vowing to steer the US back to dignity and respect, to be a country admired rather than loathed and to promote 'American values' abroad, which Trump downplayed with his 'America First' doctrine.

Boris Johnson confirms Brexit transition period will not be extended

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson has confirmed that the UK Government will not look to extend the Brexit transition and that the UK will be leaving the EU as one.

Addressing MPs in the House of Commons, the Prime Minister said that the government will not be extending the Brexit transition period.

Concern has been voiced over a "low level of preparedness" among businesses in Northern Ireland just weeks before the end of the Brexit transition period.

As negotiations between the UK and EU continue, with just weeks to go until the transition period ends on December 31, departmental officials said a lack of certainty was causing frustration among businesses.

Comment: Apparently the EU isn't sweating it:
"Decisive days for our negotiations," the EU's chief executive [Ursula von der Leyen] tweeted. "There has been progress but I cannot tell today if in the end there will be a deal."

She told the European Parliament: "The European Union is well prepared for a no-deal scenario."

London and Brussels are trying to clinch a post-Brexit trade deal during negotiations this week, but the Commission chief warned Britain that, whatever the outcome, "there will be a clear difference between being a full member & being just a valued partner."

Any trade deal should be agreed before the United Kingdom leaves the single market on January 1. The market's integrity will not be put into question, von der Leyen told EU lawmakers, but stressed the need for clear rules in view of PM Boris Johnson's tactics. "We want to know what remedies are available in case one side will deviate in the future because trust is good, but law is better."

The three main sticking points are fishing quotas and agreeing access to waters, the issue of how to settle future disputes, and ensuring economic fair play for companies.
France weighed in on the matter
The French foreign minister has slammed the attitude of the UK's Brexit negotiators, accusing them of deliberately dragging their heels over "secondary subjects," as the clock ticks down for reaching a trade deal with the EU.

"Britain must come out of tactical postures, and respect its commitments," Jean-Yves Le Drian told a French foreign affairs committee meeting on Wednesday.

"British overtures in Brexit talks remain insufficient."
At this point it looks like the UK and EU are blundering into a 'no-deal Brexit' and will have to clean up the mess on an ad hoc basis with all the ensuing economic chaos that will bring. A virtual guarantee of court cases for decades. The lawyers will make out like bandits.

"The fraud was executed by many means": Sidney Powell 'Releases the Kraken' with dual lawsuits in Michigan, Georgia

Sidney Powell, author of the bestseller "Licensed to Lie" and lead counsel in more than 500 appeals in the 5th Circuit, in Washington on May 30, 2019.
Sidney Powell has finally released the Kraken - filing two lawsuits in Michigan and Georgia late Wednesday alleging massive schemes to rig the election for Joe Biden.

In Georgia, Powell claims in a 104-page complaint filed in the US District Court in Atlanta that the purpose of the scheme was "illegally and fraudulently manipulating the vote count to make certain the election of Joe Biden as president of the United States."

"Old-fashioned ballot-stuffing" has been "amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors for that very purpose," the suit continues, adding that "Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia."

Colorado County GOP calls for election audit over doubts about Dominion voting systems

(L-R) President and CEO of Election Systems & Software Tom Burt, President and CEO of Dominion Voting Systems John Poulos, President and CEO of Hart InterCivic Julie Mathis testify during a hearing before the House Administration Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, on Jan. 9, 2020.
The Republican Party in Jefferson County, Colorado, is calling for an audit of the 2018 and 2020 elections, expressing concerns about Dominion Voting Systems software and technology used in the county and at 61 other counties in the state. The county GOP is also requesting Dominion's source code.

Over the past several weeks, Dominion has come under scrutiny in the midst of allegations that the firm switched votes from President Donald Trump to Democrat Joe Biden.

The firm has categorically denied the claims, saying that it has no ties to any foreign government, while a spokesman for the Denver-based company told Fox News on Sunday that it's "physically impossible" for votes to be switched, although he did not elaborate. The firm also pointed to statements made by the Department of Homeland Security's cybersecurity division and secretaries of state about there being little to no evidence of voter fraud.

In an address calling for unity in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, Joe Biden took a moment to push back against President Donald Trump's claims of voter fraud, calling the process "full and fair and free."

While Biden mostly spent his Wednesday address focused on the pandemic, the Thanksgiving holiday, and calls for Americans to unite, he took a moment to address the presidential election and dismissed claims that voter fraud took place.

"Our democracy was tested this year," he said. "And what we learned is this: the people of this nation are up to the task. In America, we have full and fair and free elections, and then we honor the results.

Twitter bans campaign account of Pennsylvania senator that organized Gettysburg election hearing

Sen. Doug Mastriano
Twitter has banned the campaign account of Pennsylvania Senator Doug Mastriano, who organized Wednesday's election integrity hearing by the Senate Majority Policy Committee in Gettysburg.

The ban came on the same day as the bombshell hearing, which included a call-in testimony from President Donald Trump himself.

Mastriano's ban was first noticed by One America News reporter Jack Posobiec and reported by the National File.

Comment: Twitter continues to censor without any fear of displaying their blatant bias. Their goal is apparently to host a woke bubble with nothing but users parroting acceptable discourse. What a fun platform!

Here comes the cover-up: Obama-era hatchet-man appointed by DOJ to 'prosecute' election crime

Robert Heberle
The DOJ appointed Robert Heberle, the acting Chief of the "Public Integrity Section" (PIS) of the Criminal Division of the Department, to investigate and prosecute "election related" crimes two weeks ago. This followed in the wake of the very public resignation of the prior prosecutor who refused to follow the President's agenda. Heberle and PIS are notorious for prosecuting conservatives and being hitmen for conservative politicians.

Conservatives beware!

Heberle is a 36 year old Yale Law graduate, and is known for the prosecution of innocent Congressman Steve Stockman, convicted of fraud when both donors in his trial admitted that they were not defrauded, did not feel defrauded, and where all the government witnesses admitted there was no fraudulent scheme pushed upon those donors. Stockman is serving a ten-year prison sentence for fundraising crimes, even though by all accounts he did not take the money involved.

The new invisible boogeyman: False-flags and the dawn of bioterrorism

false flags bioterrorism
For the past twenty years, the world has been in the midst of a so-called "war on terror" set in motion by a false flag attack of spectacular proportions. Now the stage is being set for a new spectacular attack to usher in the next stage in that war on terror: the war on bioterrorism. But who are the real bioterrorists? And can we rely on government agencies, their appointed health authorities, and the corporate media to accurately identify those terrorists in the wake of the next spectacular terror attack?
