Kremlin bans audience at state Christmas performance to prevent 'spread of Covid-19, especially among minors'

Moscow's traditional winter holiday festivities, held under the boughs of a giant Christmas tree, have been axed for a second straight year as Russia grapples with high rates of coronavirus transmission, the Kremlin has confirmed.

Announcing the cancellation on Thursday, Elena Krylova said that "unfortunately, due to the difficult epidemiological situation and in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19, especially among minors, it was decided that the traditional children's New Year's performance at the State Kremlin Palace will not go ahead."

The New Year's spectacle will be aired at the end of December on TV without an audience and will also be available online, Krylova promised. The two-week long non-working period is Russia's main national holiday, having replaced Christmas as a non-religious celebration in the Soviet era.

Comment: Since it's well known that the coronavirus poses next to no threat to children (as well as the vast majority of adults) this is a rather odd decision. Although it's notable that, whilst Russia seems to have gone along with the establishment's pandemic narrative, it has yet to enforce vaccine mandates, it does not use the highly experimental, and risky, mRNA 'technology', and current estimates show that just 36.3% of the population have received one jab: Putin: Mandatory vaccination shouldn't be forced on anyone, people should just be encouraged to get jab instead

TV tips for managing your unvaccinated relatives this Christmas

An Australian TV show has come up with a set of "tips and tricks" on how to bar unvaccinated loved ones from the Christmas table, and what to do if you can't get rid of them.

Dealing with relatives who didn't get their Covid-19 jabs is the "new dilemma" for Australians this Christmas, according to the hosts of the Sunrise morning show on the country's Seven Network.

The program stopped short of saying that the unvaccinated shouldn't be invited to parties at all, but dedicated a whole segment to advice for those looking to avoid "awkward encounters" during the upcoming holiday season.

Comment: It is just unbelievable how many people are accepting this absurd nonsense. It is so easy to control people and make them accept and believe total lies when all the pieces of evidence go against the official government lies and are in front of their eyes.

It is called cognitive dissonance. It is a psychological state of denial. It is like they are locked in an imaginary world and battling their own hallucinations of the future and can't see the reality around them.

Their belief system is programmed to believe that all these measures are for their own good and that the government wants to protect them with vaccines. Everyone who thinks and acts differently is attacking their belief system, so they are doing their best to deny the reality and keep their illusion alive.

It was and still is psychological and social engineering done by the PTB around the world so they can impose totalitarian control over all aspects of our lives, disguised as a public health care

Kenosha jury completely exonerates Kyle Rittenhouse, affirms right to self-defense

kyle rittenhouse verdict defense

Kyle Rittenhouse is supported by his defense lawyer after being acquitted of all charges stemming from the Kenosha riots shootings
Kyle Rittenhouse, who was accused of first-degree homicide among other counts after a night of race-fueled riots in Kenosha, Wis., was acquitted of all charges Friday.

"I didn't do anything wrong. I defended myself," Rittenhouse said during his testimony.

Rittenhouse faced five counts: First-degree reckless homicide, two charges of first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree intentional homicide, and attempted first-degree intentional homicide. If found guilty, the 18-year-old faced punishment up to life in prison. He was found not guilty in every case.

Comment: The only acceptable end to a trial that never should have happened in the first place. Good luck to this young man in finally being able to get on with his life.

Let it also be noted that if it weren't for the courageous independent journalists who provided the footage proving Rittenhouse's innocence, a severe miscarriage of justice was almost assured.


Moving goalposts: Booster jabs to be added to England's Covid pass for travel

Some countries, including Croatia and Austria, have introduced a time limit for the validity of the coronavirus jab.
Update will allow people to prove they have had extra jab when they go abroad

Travellers from England who have had a booster or third dose of vaccine will be able to demonstrate their vaccine status through the NHS Covid pass, which will allow them to travel to countries requiring proof for entry, ministers have announced.

Israel, Croatia and Austria are among countries that have already introduced a time limit for the Covid-19 vaccine to be valid for quarantine-free travel.

However, it will not be necessary to show evidence of a booster for travel into England at this time, the Department of Health and Social Care said.

Comment: The categories of segregation are becoming more complex every day. This is by design, as a population kept gaslit by ever-shifting requirements is too busy trying not run afoul of the 'rules' to notice the bars of the cage they are being herded into.

Rising food prices sparks fear in Russia too

russia grocery store supermarket

Food prices in Russia are spiking at an alarming rate, the head of the Central Bank has said, calling for immediate action to reduce the cost of basic products in supermarkets to protect the country's most vulnerable citizens.

Speaking on Thursday in the State Duma, Elvira Nabiullina remarked that Russians earning lower incomes will be most affected as food shopping takes up a large chunk of their monthly expenses.

Comment: A Levada poll back in August revealed citizens were already deeply concerned:
In the last six months, nearly two out of every five (39%) Russians have gone without food and drink due to a lack of funds, a poll has revealed. The country has seen rapid inflation of grocery prices during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The latest figures come over three decades after Perestroika and the market-like reforms introduced by then-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, which led to worsened food shortages. The subsequent fall-out led to the collapse of the USSR, and the introduction of a hyper capitalist system, where a small oligarchy quickly took over key sectors of the economy. The 1990s were a painful decade in Russia, and while things have improved since then, pronounced inequality remains a feature of the country's economic make up.

The poll, published by Levada, also revealed that 52% of all Russians have had to forgo necessary purchases of clothes and shoes, while 71% decided not to go ahead with essential large purchases for the home.
Ice Age Farmer and Adapt 2030 have been calling it for years:


Sheriffs Association representing 17 states: 'No confidence' in Biden's open borders, DHS Secretary Mayorkas 'dishonest', should be fired

illegal migrants rio grande border texas
The Western States Sheriffs Association has called on President Joe Biden to fire Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

The association represents sheriff's departments in 17 states, and accused Mayorkas of "dishonesty." Understandably, the lawmen have "no confidence" in Mayorkas, a Cuban immigrant who has flooded the country with illegal aliens.

But nothing Mayorkas has done is a surprise. He's following Biden's orders. The chances that Biden will fire the leftist are zero, or close to it. Indeed, Biden probably hasn't seen the letter, doesn't know the association sent it, and probably never will.

Archbishop Viganò calls on people of faith to unite in a worldwide anti-globalist alliance to free humanity from the totalitarian regime

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò appealed to Catholics, Christians, and people of Faith to unite against the dark forces of globalism.

Archbishop Viganò sent The Gateway Pundit his video and Appeal for an Anti-Globalist Alliance.

Please watch his moving call for unity, courage, strength, and faith.

Archbishop Viganò shared this moving text and video with us on Wednesday. The video and text are an international call for the creation of an anti-globalist alliance to defeat the evil elites who wish to enslave free men and women and promote a "Religion of Humanity that cancels Faith in Christ."

From Archbishop Viganò:
"This Anti-Globalist Alliance will have to bring together the Nations that intend to escape the infernal yoke of tyranny and affirm their own sovereignty, forming agreements of mutual collaboration with Nations and peoples who share their principles and the common yearning for freedom, justice, and goodness. It will have to denounce the crimes of the elite, identify those responsible, denounce them to international tribunals, and limit their excessive power and harmful influence. It will have to prevent the action of the lobbies, above all by fighting against the corruption of state officials and those who work in the information industry, and by freezing the capital used to destabilize the social order."

The whole pandemic issue is instrumental to the Great Reset, and it is the latter that we must fight. I think that, at this moment, it is most appropriate to create a movement of the people that calls together, in an Anti-globalist Alliance, Catholics, Christians, and people of goodwill. This is the first appeal I make to that effect.

...If the attack is global. The defense must also be global.

From this week's Galway City Tribune - Management at NUI Galway have said they will use CCTV to track down students who refuse to wear face masks and can take disciplinary action against them.

Staff at the university were told this week to approach students who do not wear masks and if they refuse to wear one, CCTV will be used to "pick up on the individuals".

NUIG's Chief Operating Officer, John Gill, said the college's adherence to Covid-19 guidelines has been largely excellent.

"However, in recent weeks, we've had some reports of isolated incidents of non-compliance, particularly in public areas like corridors etc, and particularly relating to the wearing of face masks. We want to encourage everyone, staff and students, to return to full compliance.

Judge orders New York Times to justify publishing James O'Keefe legal memos

Porject veritas o keefe
James O'Keefe
New York Judge Charles D. Wood of the Supreme Court of Westchester County ordered the New York Times on Thursday to defend its publication last week of an article about legal memoranda addressed to Project Veritas and founder James O'Keefe.

The decision stems from a case filed last year in which O'Keefe is suing the Times for defamation. But it is related to the recent FBI raid on O'Keefe's home in New York, because the Times only published its article after the raid.



Digging deeper: WaPo has now 'corrected' over a dozen articles related to Steele dossier coverage

The Washington Post corrected its coverage of Christopher Steele’s (L) infamous dossier after the indictment of Igor Danchenko. (R)
The Washington Post made headlines last week when it corrected and altered two stories that inaccurately identified a key source of the discredited anti-Trump Steele dossier - but the paper also added editor's notes to at least 14 other reports.

The two stories, published in March 2017 and February 2019, were changed when the newspaper's executive editor, Sally Buzbee, said she could no longer stand by their accuracy. The post added editor's notes, amended headlines, removed sections identifying Sergei Millian as the source and deleted an accompanying video summarizing the articles.

The changes came after Special Counsel John Durham's investigation into the Trump-Russia probe further discredited the already-shaky dossier when Russian national Igor Danchenko, who is believed to be a sub-source for the dossier, was indicted.
