Winter in Hell: CNN's Daniel Dale admits Trump 'correct' on Biden's anti-fracking stance

anderson cooper dan dale
For CNN's liberal fact-checker Daniel Dale to admit that President Donald Trump was "correct" about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's fracking stance must have been a hard pill to swallow for the network.

During CNN's post-debate analysis, Anderson Cooper 360° anchor Anderson Cooper pointed out that Trump went after "Biden on the issue of fracking to extract oil and gas." Cooper then showed a clip of the Trump-Biden exchange on fracking, where Biden claimed that he "never said 'I oppose fracking.'" Cooper then appeared to try to lead Dale into giving the answer he wanted by saying, "Daniel, he [Biden] then later on added that he had called for an end to fracking on federal land." Dale then dropped a bomb on CNN talking heads: "In this case, Trump is correct. Biden did make anti-fracking comments during the Democratic primary in 2019 and 2020. Trump was not lying." [Emphasis added.]

Protesters have flooded the streets of San Bernardino, California, one day after a police killing of a black man. Police said the victim, who had a gun, was shot after he overpowered an officer and took out his own weapon.

Scores of Black Lives Matter demonstrators amassed in front of the King Tut liquor store in San Bernardino on Friday evening to protest the killing of Mark Matthew Bender, a black man, who was shot and killed there by a responding officer a day before.

Kanye West: Only 'racist' liberals think 'black people can't make decisions for ourselves'

Rapper, fashion mogul, and presidential candidate Kanye West called out "racist" liberals during his recent interview with Joe Rogan, saying that they regularly condescend to black people by assuming they are unable to make decisions for themselves.

Kanye West made the remarks during the latest installment of The Joe Rogan Experience that went live on Saturday. During the rambling, nearly three-hour conversation, West touched on numerous subjects including the music and fashion industries, his foray into politics, and the condition of black people in America.

"One of the most racist things that liberals who pride themselves on not being racist have said to me, like, 'you're going to split the black vote,'" West said. "That makes it seem like black people can't make decisions for ourselves."

Kanye tells Rogan it's his 'calling' from God to be president - but if not, he's happy to run for California governor over Newsom
24 Oct, 2020 22:44

In a wide-ranging interview with Joe Rogan, rapper and independent presidential candidate Kanye West says it is his calling "to be the leader of the free world," but he's also open to being governor of California.

Though he's running for president, former Donald Trump supporter West says taking over a smaller, though still significant, political office has also "been an idea people throw at me."

Briefly discussing Ronald Reagan's journey from California governor to president, West said the office could be an option for him.

"I believe that my calling to be leader of the free world, but if it's in God's plan that part of my path is to be governor then that's fine," the rapper said.

Rogan, a frequent critic of Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, was encouraging of the idea and said "anybody would be better than this guy."

"Give it a shot. Open things up again," he said.

Rogan is one of many public figures to make a recent move out of California. He now lives in Austin, Texas.

Talking more about his "calling," West said the idea of being president was "something God put in my heart back in 2015."

West, whose independent run for president this year has been highly criticized by Democrats looking to unseat Trump, said that many took it as a "joke" when he announced his intentions, and tried to discourage him from running, including major Democrat Party donor Oprah Winfrey.

West said that Trump winning the presidency in 2016 had proven that people "coming from outside of politics" could make it to the Oval Office.

"There couldn't be a better time to put a visionary in the captain's chair," he said of his potential as president.

"I listen and I'm empathetic. I feel the entire Earth and I feel us as a species, the human race," he continued, adding that he wants "world peace" and that it's time for the US to "innovate."


Since announcing his candidacy over the summer, West has faced accusations of running a spoiler campaign to hurt Joe Biden's chances at defeating Trump, something he has denied on multiple occasions.

The rapper has made multiple state ballots, including Tennessee and Colorado, but he is a write-in candidate in most states, making the likelihood of his winning a major longshot. He has, however, claimed he can beat Biden "off of write-ins."

UK government struck £119m Covid advertising deal weeks before first lockdown

uk covid billboard
Ministers struck a deal worth up to £119m with one of the world's biggest marketing companies for a Covid campaign three weeks before the country went into a national lockdown, official filings show.

The Cabinet Office signed the contract with London-based OMD Group, a subsidiary of US ad titan Omnicom, on March 2 - the same day Prime Minister Boris Johnson attended his first pandemic-related Cobra meeting - as the Government began to gear up its response to the crisis.

Although the UK did not go into lockdown until March 23, the outline of its communications strategy appears to have been agreed weeks in advance.

The agreement referred to three "tiers" of messaging that the Government wanted to get across to the public, including telling people to "Stay Home, Stay Safe", reminding them to wash their hands regularly and promoting healthy lifestyle habits during periods of isolation.

It also referenced marketing campaigns to communicate emergency economic measures.

PLANdemic? Rothschilds patented covid-19 biometric tests in 2015 according to registry documents

As we've shown in previous exposes, the whole Covidiocracy is a masquerade and a simulation long prepared by The World Bank / IMF / The Rothschilds / World Economic Forum (basically the world's "elite", the 0.1%) and their lemmings, with Rockefeller partnership.

Our newest discoveries further these previous revelations.

The ten worst Covid data failures

Throughout the pandemic, the government and its scientific advisers have made constant predictions, projections and illustrations regarding the behaviour of Covid-19. Their figures are never revisited as the Covid narrative unfolds, which means we are not given an idea of the error margin. A look back at the figures issued shows that the track record, eventually validated against the facts, is abysmal. This is important because major decisions continue to be taken on the strength of such data. There have been several noteworthy failings so far.

1)Overstating of the number of people who are going to die

This starts with the now-infamous Imperial College London (ICL) 'Report 9' that modelled 500,000 deaths if no action was taken at all, and 250,000 deaths if restrictions were not tightened. This set the train of lockdown restrictions in motion. Some argue that Imperial's modelling may have come true had it not been for lockdown. But this does not explain Sweden. Academics there said its assumptions would mean 85,000 deaths if Sweden did not lock down. It did not - and deaths are just under 6,000.

2) Leaked SAGE papers

Next came a print paper written by SAGE members to support a two-week 'circuit breaker', leaked to the press. The reports were striking.
"'With no social distancing measures in place from now until January, the virus could potentially spiral out of control and kill 217,000 people, hospitalise 316,000 and infect 20.7 million. But with a strict two-week lockdown the number of deaths could be reduced by 100,000, admissions by 139,000 and infections by 6 million.'

Comment: If exact data were available, it would further support the case that Covid is not a deadly disease and all these measures taken have nothing to do with 'protecting public health'.

Yes, coronavirus poses a risk - but our response to it is not intelligent or useful. Britain is infected... by a bad case of madness

empty shelves

They create the idea that we are in the midst of a terrifying plague that will kill us all, when the truth – though disturbing – is far less frightening. Their worst effect is to savage the economy by scaring people away from normal activities. Empty shelves are pictured above in an Asda store in London
Yes, you are right. We have gone quite mad. I know that many people are thinking this, but dare not say so. I will be accused of all kinds of terrible things for taking this view - but that is another aspect of how crazy things are.

Yes, coronavirus poses a risk. No, our response to it is not intelligent or useful. In fact, I think it is increasingly damaging and will soon become more so.

The key word here is proportion. There is nothing wrong with simple, practical precautions.

I have for many years believed that door handles pose one of the greatest threats to health, and try never to touch them with the naked hand. I was taught from my earliest years to wash my hands before eating.

I am a health faddist. I work at a standing desk. For many years I have walked and bicycled wherever I can.

NHS 'won't cope' if infection rate continues at current rate, scientist warns

Epidemiologist Neil Ferguson
The NHS won't be able to cope if coronavirus cases continue to rise at the current rate, the architect of the March lockdown has warned. Professor Neil Ferguson, whose modelling led to country being shut down in the spring, said that the Government may have no choice but to introduce even stricter measures unless case numbers begin to fall substantially. Speaking to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme, the influential scientist said while infections among 18 to 21-year-olds were falling, they were continuing to rise in other age groups. He said:
"Unfortunately, in every other age group case numbers continue to rise at about the same rate they were. There are little hints of slowing, for instance in the North East of England, but we are not seeing the sort of slowing that we really need to to get on top of this.

"It is a worrying situation. We now have 8,000 people in hospital with Covid. That is about a third of the level we were at the peak of the pandemic in March. If the rate of growth continues as it is, it means that in a month's time we will above that peak level in March and that is probably unsustainable. We are in a critical time right now. The health system will not be able to cope with this rate of growth for much longer."
Professor Ferguson's stark warning came after new figures released yesterday showed the second wave of infections may be beginning to slow.

Comment: Yes, we are infected but it is with lies and persuasions. That there is such a vast divide on concept, diagnosis, protocols and reasonable medical recourse highlights how opinions in the medical field overrule obvious scientific facts. Thus we have a diversity of highly questionable expertise that runs the gamut of ideologically-infested medical advice - a tower of babble.

Aussie special forces allegedly executed hog-tied Afghan prisoner because of no space for him in helicopter

Australian special forces have been accused of killing an unarmed, bound prisoner in cold blood, as a four-year probe into alleged war crimes committed by Aussie troops in Afghanistan nears its end.

A US Marine helicopter crew chief told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) that a group of Australian soldiers shot and killed an Afghan prisoner as they were preparing to be airlifted after a raid. According to the marine, identified only as Josh, the Aussie commandos radioed his helicopter to tell them they needed transportation for seven prisoners captured during the operation. He told the Australian outlet:
"And you just heard this silence, and then we heard a pop. And then they said, 'OK, we have six prisoners'. We knew somebody was already cuffed up, ready to go, taken prisoner, and we just witnessed them kill a prisoner. It was a very deliberate decision to break the rules of war."
The US marine said it was the first time he had seen something he couldn't "morally justify," as the prisoner had already been detained and posed no threat to the Aussie forces.

Comment: As in the travesty of the Julian Assange case, another Aussie journalist may face charges for reporting inconvenient news.

Woke Tech goes full Biden as Expensify warns 10 million customers that a vote for Trump may mean 'CIVIL WAR'

Expensify CEO David Barrett • US President Donald Trump
The expense report processor Expensify is doing its best to scare its 10 million customers into voting for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, saying anything less is "a vote against democracy" and may lead to "civil war."

David Barrett, CEO of the San Francisco-based company, said in an email blasted out to all of Expensify's customers on Thursday that the US is "facing an unprecedented attack on the foundations of democracy itself." Anyone who votes for President Donald Trump, votes for a third-party candidate, or doesn't cast a ballot is showing that they are "comfortable standing aside and allowing our democracy to be methodically dismantled, in plain sight," he added.

Barrett didn't detail how he thinks Trump is destroying democracy, saying only that he believes the president is trying to suppress votes. As a provider of expense-management software, he said, "Expensify depends on a functioning society and economy. Not many expense reports get filed during a civil war."

Barrett made no effort to reconcile his doomsday views on Trump with the fact that Expensify is able to rank as the world's most widely used and fastest-growing expense-management platform while the current president is in charge.
