'We need to treat lunchtime as a dangerous time for all': School says students must wear masks when chewing, swallowing food in cafeteria

In this Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, file photo, students, some wearing protective masks, arrive for the first day of school at Sessums Elementary School in Riverview, Fla.
A Washington state school decreed that students must wear masks in the cafeteria — while chewing and swallowing food, Jason Rantz of KTTH-AM reported.

In addition, the school district backed the mask mandate from Tacoma's Geiger Montessori School using guidance that doesn't exist, Rantz also reported — and he added that the cited guidance actually indicates students should not wear masks while eating lunch.

What are the details?

Rantz noted a portion of an email to parents from Principal Neil O'Brien outlining the policy:
Yes. Children should wear masks during lunch. They can lower it to take a bite or a drink, and raise it to chew, swallow, or talk. Our cafeteria has a fantastic airflow system and children are spaced apart AND when over a hundred of them are in one large room (the cafeteria and gym combined) we need to treat lunchtime as a dangerous time for all. Children need to continue to wear their masks during lunch.
A parent who went by the name "Michael" noted on Rantz's KTTH radio show that he reached out to the principal with concerns but never heard back. However, Michael told Rantz he did hear back from Shallae Hobbs, Tacoma Public Schools' administrator of health services.

Amputations & executions will return as punishments for crime, says senior Taliban official

Turabi

The one-eyed, one-legged founder of the Taliban Mullah Nooruddin Turabi warned today the regime will bring back executions and amputations for thieves - though they may not be held in public
The Taliban's notorious former head of religious police has said extreme punishments such as executions and amputations will resume in Afghanistan.

Mullah Nooruddin Turabi, now in charge of prisons, told AP News amputations were "necessary for security".

He said these punishments may not be meted out in public, as they were under previous Taliban rule in the 1990s.

But he dismissed outrage over their past public executions: "No-one will tell us what our laws should be."

Comment: Whilst Afghanistan may be one of the more extreme examples, these kinds of restrictions and punishments are in force elsewhere, the death penalty is still in effect even in places like the US, and so whilst it may not be what most Western citizens would support, the situation needs to be seen in context.

Oregon Senators file formal Grand Jury petition calling for investigation into CDC's willful misconduct to hyperinflate COVID-19 data following federal law violations

Leah Wilson, J.D.
The formal request for a Grand Jury Investigation was brought forth on behalf of more than 62,200 Americans who signed a public petition gathered by Stand for Health Freedom.

Oregon State Senators Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum jointly filed a formal petition for a federal grand jury investigation into both the CDC and FDA on August 16th in the city of Medford, Oregon, Jackson County. The official letter included eight exhibits and 20 references for evidentiary materials showing a clear need to formally investigate the agencies for willful misconduct.

In March 2020, according to a paper published in the journal Science, Public Health Policy, and The Law, the CDC abruptly changed how death certificates were recorded for only one type of death — COVID-19 — and circumvented multiple federal laws to do so. This hyperinflation of death certificate reporting kicked off an avalanche of data degradation and destructive public health policies.

Now, two Oregon Senators have broken their silence in an exclusive briefing about their letter and the petition calling for a thorough investigation. The project has been a months-in-the-making combined effort between scientific, legal and public policy experts.

WTH is this? Tucker Carlson reveals 'Satanism' powerpoint slide presented to army to promote vaccination

Tucker Carlson
"So here you have the U.S. Army doing PR for Satanism."

Host Tucker Carlson revealed a bizarre powerpoint slide Monday that was presented to U.S. Army service members in an effort to get them on board with mandatory COVID vaccinations. The slide sardonically asks "how many children have been sacrificed to Satan for the vaccine?" before claiming only three people have died from side effects, and then listing the 'tenets of Satanism' taken straight from the 'temple of Satanism' website.

The Army admitted that the slide was shown to service members, but claims that it wasn't approved by leadership, according to Carlson, who labeled the military vaccine mandate a "takeover of the US military."

What the hell is this?

Making racism culturally cool: New BET movie 'Karen' is 2021's most rabidly racist film

© IMDB
"Karen" by Coke Daniels, 2021, Flixville USA.
Black Entertainment Television's Karen is a truly toxic movie riddled with the same identity-based hate that it supposedly aims to expose. The fact it's been made at all makes a mockery of the serious subject matter.

When people inquire about what I do for a living and I tell them I'm a film critic, they often ask, "What's that like?" My pat answer is, "It's better than digging ditches."

Having suffered through the atrociously awful new BET original movie Karen, I realize that statement isn't true, as I would've been better off spending that hour and a half digging a ditch in which to bury myself alive.

Don't hand out cash to pensioners like communists! Russian bank chief insists under capitalism the elderly should pay their own way

Russia's top economic bosses are embroiled in a row over whether retirees should be able to count on handouts from the government, or if workers should be expected to set aside savings to cover their living expenses later in life.

Speaking to members of the Budget Committee in the country's Senate on Tuesday, the first deputy director of Russia's central bank, Sergey Shvetsov, told lawmakers that elderly people shouldn't be dependent on state funds.
"Helping pensioners, in my opinion, is a bit too late. Citizens should retire with a good pension package which, first and foremost, must be built up by themselves throughout their lives. This is called capitalism."
According to Shvetsov, efforts to bolster older peoples' incomes by raising the pension rate, as well as one-off sums offered up to help them with rising living costs, are a throwback to a bygone era.
"When a person retires and relies entirely on the state - this is called socialism. We are closer to our Soviet past on this front, and the proposal of the Central Bank is to transform this situation through encouraging and incentivizing citizens, as well as reforming pension institutions."

Comment: Considering the plandemic's effect on production, trade and consumption, whatever economic issues previously considered precarious are now magnified, especially for retirees. Note how 'the coronavirus' has eliminated a great swath of the elderly all around the globe...purposefully, some might conclude. Putin is right...there are no great options.

Two evacuees from Afghanistan will face federal charges for crimes allegedly committed at Fort McCoy.

Bahrullah Noori, 20, is charged with attempting to engage in a sexual act with a minor through the use of force. The victim was not yet 16 years old, according to an indictment.

Mohammad Haroon Imaad, 32, is charged with assaulting his spouse by strangling and suffocating her. The indictment alleges that the assault occurred on September 7, 2021.

Both men made initial appearances in Madison on September 16 and are being detained at the Dane County Jail.

Noori and Imaad are scheduled for arraignment Thursday, September 23.

If convicted, Noori faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 30 years and a maximum of life in federal prison on the charges alleging use of force, and a maximum penalty of 15 years on the other two charges. Imaad faces a maximum penalty of 10 years.

These cases are not related, according to a Justice Department news release, which added:

The charges against them are the result of investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort McCoy Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Taylor Kraus is handling the Noori prosecution and Assistant U.S. Attorney Zachary Corey is handling the Imaad prosecution.

Many migrants staying in US even as expulsion flights rise

Three hours after being freed from a giant migrant camp under an international bridge, Mackenson Veillard stood outside a gas station and took stock of his sudden good fortune as he and his pregnant wife waited for a Greyhound bus to take them to a cousin in San Antonio.

The couple camped with thousands for a week under the bridge in Del Rio, Texas, sleeping on concrete and getting by on bread and bottled water. "I felt so stressed," Veillard, 25, said this week. "But now, I feel better. It's like I'm starting a new life."

Many Haitian migrants in Del Rio are being released in the United States, according to two U.S. officials, undercutting the Biden administration's public statements that the thousands in the camp faced immediate expulsion to Haiti.



Haitians have been freed on a "very, very large scale" in recent days, one official said Tuesday. The official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter and thus spoke on condition of anonymity, put the figure in the thousands.

The embattled Chinese property developer Evergrande is inching closer to the potential default that investors fear, after missing an interest payment deadline.

The company, which has total debts of about $305bn (£222bn), has run short of cash and investors are worried a collapse could pose systemic risks to China's financial system and reverberate around the world.

A Thursday deadline for paying $83.5m (£61m) in bond interest passed without remark from Evergrande, and bondholders had not been paid nor heard from the company, two people familiar with the situation told Reuters.

Ultra-orthodox Jewish female school principal to stand trial for 70 child sexual abuse charges in Australia

Leifer

Former principal of Adass Israel School in Melbourne's inner suburbs will stand trial on 70 charges of child sexual abuse (pictured, Leifer in a Jerusalem court in 2018)
Former ultra-orthodox school principal Malka Leifer has been ordered to stand trial on 70 child sexual abuse charges.

Leifer, 55, pleaded not guilty to all charges at the end of a committal hearing in Melbourne on Thursday.

The allegations relate to sisters Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper over incidents during Leifer's time at the Adass Israel School in the city's inner suburbs between 2004 and 2008.

Magistrate Johanna Metcalf said she believed the evidence presented during a hearing, which heard from all three sisters in closed court, was of sufficient weight to support a conviction.
