Disgraced former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo
A former co-worker of Chris Cuomo made a sexual misconduct allegation against the former CNN anchor, who was fired Saturday for misleading the cable network about the extent of the role he played trying to mitigate the sexual harassment accusations that took down his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A well known employment lawyer who represents the accuser contacted CNN Wednesday to tell them of the allegation, according to The New York Times.

The disclosure came as an outside law firm was probing new documents released by by New York's top prosecutor Monday that suggested the younger Cuomo was more involved trying to control damage to his brother's political career than he previously said.


UK care home closes as vaccine mandate leads to loss of staff, union says industry is "already on its knees"

Care home bosses say they are devastated to have to make the decision
Bosses at a small Coventry care home say they are "devastated" to make the decision to close due to staffing issues created by a lack of fully vaccinated care workers.

St Martin's on Woodway Lane, Walsgrave, has been providing care for the city's elderly for more than three decades.

But the home, which caters to 16 people, has been having difficulties finding available staff with the required vaccination status.

From November 11 it became mandatory under government legislation for those working in care homes to be fully vaccinated, unless medically exempt.

Comment: This is just one of many examples of facilities that have been forced to close, however there is growing evidence that others have managed to only remain open by operating on dangerously low staffing levels. And the situation is likely to get much, much worse, as the government fomented hysteria surrounding the Omicron variant diverts healthcare resources away from the very people it claims to be trying to protect, and the hype is used to expand the vaccine mandates to ever greater numbers of professions: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Omicron!

Cryptos see $1 billion liquidated as Omicron & threats of new lockdowns cast doubt over global economic recovery

Bitcoin shed a fifth of its value on Saturday as a combination of profit-taking and macro-economic concerns triggered nearly a billion dollars worth of selling across cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin was 12% down at 0920 GMT at $47,495. It fell as low as $41,967.5 during the session, taking total losses for the day to 22%.

The broad selloff in cryptocurrencies also saw ether, the coin linked to the ethereum blockchain network, plunge more than 10%.

Based on cryptocurrency data platform Coingecko, the market capitalisation of the 11,392 coins it tracks dropped nearly 15% to $2.34 trillion. That value had briefly crossed $3 trillion last month, when bitcoin hit a record $69,000.

Comment: The Build Back Better bunch have made it clear that they intend to, somehow, impose a 'Great Reset' on the global economy which will then facilitate the enforcement of their new normal. And with the cumulative damage of rolling lockdowns, the multiple boosters and the evident harm they're causing, and how the hype of this new Omicron variant reveals wave of destruction is ready to be inflicted it looks an outcry against the lockdowns, injurious injections, coupled with a collapse of global economies is increasingly inevitable. Whether the establishment will be able to maintain its control over this demolition remains to be seen: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Omicron! Nu Variant! More Lockdowns! More Jabs!

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has been fired in the wake of revelations he secretly aided the defense of his embattled brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo — and the network said it is probing new information on "Fredo."

"This is not how I want my time at CNN to end," Chris Cuomo said in a statement.

"But I have already told you why and how I helped my brother," he continued.

CNN confirmed the firing and said that Cuomo had been "terminated ... effective immediately" as an outside law firm continues to investigate "his involvement with his brother's defense."

Russians understand the very real threat of food shortages, and that risk is now global

It has been decades since the food shortages that followed the fall of the Soviet Union, and Russians are used to shop shelves fully stocked with a previously unimaginable array of products, many of them made within the country.

However, rising prices and increasingly insecure supply chains are posing a risk to people in Russia and around the world. In a recent interview, Svein Tore Holsether, the chief executive of one of the largest global fertilizer producers, Yara International, warned that rising gas prices could create a worldwide food crisis. Production of fertilizers, which farmers use to boost yields of their crops, requires large volumes of hydrocarbons as a raw material. Shortages could lead to slimmer harvests and costs could be passed on to consumers.

"It's impacting food prices all over the world and it hits the wallets of many people," Holsether warned. "But for some people, especially in the developing world, this is not only a question about the wallet, but it's a question of life or death."

Comment: Why would anyone expect the same establishment that is driving our civilisation to collapse to be the ones to save it?

3 children DEAD & 120 hospitalized in just 1 week due to Pfizer jab, Vietnam province suspends batch but 'may use it later on adults'

A student receives a Covid-19 vaccine shot in Thanh Hoa, December 1, 2021.
Thanh Hoa has suspended the use of a Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine batch after over 120 students were hospitalized following their inoculation.

Since November 30, the central province has been vaccinating children aged 15-17 with the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. However, over 120 of the children were admitted to hospitals after exhibiting symptoms like nausea, high fever or breathing difficulties, the provincial Center for Disease Control (CDC) said Thursday.

Comment: This article was published on the 2nd of December, and in just 3 days since they started jabbing children, on the 30th November, they've documented over 120 children suffering adverse reactions. And it's likely many more have gone unreported.

Of these, 17 had severe reactions, but their health has stabilized and they continue to be monitored at the hospital, the center said. The cause of their symptoms has yet to be confirmed by Thanh Hoa authorities.

Comment: What's being reported in this Vietnam province reflects what's happening everywhere these experimental injections are being rolled out, however the only difference is that in this article they haven't tried that hard to disguise the fall out. Meanwhile Western mainstream news outlets report these predictable and preventable tragedies as 'rare' and 'mysterious' events with no mention of the other many other injuries and deaths caused by the jabs; it's rare that they even mention the jabs at all: And check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: The Red Line?

Michigan school shooting: Tipster led Detroit police to parents of suspect with $10K reward on offer

A tipster led Detroit police to the location of the parents of Michigan school shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley early Saturday.

James and Jennifer Crumbley were taken into custody following an extensive manhunt for the couple, who had failed to appear for their arraignment on Friday.

The pair - who were unarmed - "appeared to be hiding" in the basement of a commercial building at 1111 Bellevue Street and gave themselves up to police, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

Acting on a tip, officers activated their Special Response Team, set up a perimeter and did surveillance. The Crumbleys' car was left in the building's parking lot.

Comment: Associated Press further reports:
A judge imposed a combined $1 million bond Saturday for the parents of the Michigan teen charged with killing four students at Oxford High School, hours after police said they were caught hiding in a Detroit commercial building.

James and Jennifer Crumbley entered not guilty pleas to each of the four involuntary manslaughter counts against them during a hearing held on Zoom. Jennifer Crumbley sobbed and struggled to respond to the judge's questions at times and James Crumbley shook his head when a prosecutor said their son had full access to the gun used in the killings.

This image from 52-1 District Court shows a Zoom arraignment for Jennifer and James Crumbley in Oakland Co., Mich., on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021. The parents of Ethan Crumbley, a teen accused of killing four students in a shooting at Oxford High School, plead not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges.
Judge Julie Nicholson assigned bond of $500,000 apiece to each of the parents and required GPS monitoring if they pay to be released, agreeing with prosecutors that they posed a flight risk.

Defense attorneys for the Crumbleys still argued Saturday that they never intended to flee and had made plans to meet their lawyers early that morning. Attorney Shannon Smith accused prosecutors of "cherry picking" facts to release publicly, including that accusation that their teenage son had unrestricted access to the handgun prosecutors say his father purchased for him days before the shooting.

"Our clients are just as devastated as everyone else," Smith said, adding that the gun "was locked." She didn't provide more detail during Saturday's hearing.

Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald's office filed involuntary manslaughter charges against the Crumbleys on Friday, accusing them of failing to intervene on the day of the tragedy despite being confronted with a drawing and chilling message — "blood everywhere" — that was found at the boy's desk. They could each face up to 15 years in prison, according to a spokeswoman for McDonald's office.

The Crumbleys committed "egregious" acts, from buying a gun on Black Friday and making it available to Ethan Crumbley to resisting his removal from school when they were summoned a few hours before the shooting, McDonald said Friday.

Authorities had been looking for the couple since Friday afternoon. Late Friday, U.S. Marshals announced a reward of up to $10,000 each for information leading to their arrests.

Smith, the Crumbleys' attorney, had said Friday that the pair left town earlier in the week "for their own safety" and would be returning to Oxford to face charges.


Royal College of Midwives apologises after referring to 'postnatal people' in newborn sleeping advice, excluded terms 'women' and mother'

postnatal people

The organisation made a public apology after facing a backlash over social media for excluding women and mothers in favour of 'postnatal people'
The Royal College of Midwives has apologised after excluding the words 'women' and 'mother' in favour of 'postnatal people' in its latest guidance for handling sleeping babies.

The guidance, which has since been taken down from the RCM's website, gave instructions for health professionals on how babies should be put to sleep.

'Parents' are mentioned several times over the 16 bullet points on one page, but a paragraph referring to postnatal mothers stood out.

It stated: 'Postnatal people in hospital should have easy access to the call bell system, be shown how to use it and ensure it's working - they should be provided with a bed-side cot for the baby to use while in hospital.'

Comment: The fruits of Woke ideology show it clearly serves as a vehicle and cover for a much more sinister agenda: Also check out SOTT radio's:


Tucker Carlson: Omicron is Democrat power grab and US will end up with Australia-type lockdowns

Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Wednesday accused Democrats of using the Omicron variant of COVID-19 as a pretext to trample Americans' civil liberties
Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued that Democrats are using COVID-19 and the unknown risks of the new Omicron variant as an excuse to seize more power and trample on Americans' civil liberties, raising the specter of a strict lockdown like the one in Australia.

The anchor opened his top-rated cable show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, on Wednesday by mocking the Biden Administration for imposing a travel ban on the citizens of Mozambique, where no Omicron cases have been identified so far, as part of a possible mix-up with the African country of Botswana, where two people may have contracted the new COVID variant.

'Either way, Mozambique and Botswana don't even share a border, so people in Mozambique were highly confused and probably a little hurt,' Carlson remarked.


Kyle Rittenhouse's vindication proves just how important local elections are

Judge Bruce Schroeder
The victory of Kyle Rittenhouse shows that, even in blue-leaning cities in blue-leaning states, there are still enough heroic ordinary Americans whose minds are not corrupted by left-wing poison, capable of delivering a just verdict in an unjust case.

But the Rittenhouse trial also shows the importance of something else.

While power in America is more federally concentrated than ever, local politics remains crucial for preserving the dwindling rights and freedoms of ordinary Americans.
