Boeing workers stage protest near Seattle over US vaccine mandate

Boeing employees and others line the street to wave signs and American flags to protest the company's coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine mandate, outside the Boeing facility in Everett, Washington, October 15, 2021.
Waving signs like "coercion is not consent," and "stop the mandate," some 200 Boeing Co employees and others staged a protest on Friday over the planemaker's COVID-19 vaccine requirement for U.S. workers.

Boeing said on Tuesday it will require its 125,000 U.S. employees to be vaccinated by Dec. 8 under an executive order issued by President Joe Biden for federal contractors.

As the pandemic has continued to rage, Biden announced the requirement in September because a large swath of Americans have resisted vaccination even though the shots are free, widely available and declared safe by regulators.

"It's my choice and it's my body," one avionics engineer said, his voice nearly drowned out by anti-Biden chants and trucks honking to show support along the busy street outside Boeing's factory in Everett, north of Seattle.

"It's an experimental drug given under a pseudo-emergency," he added.

Another worker, an assembly mechanic, said: "This is America. We don't just do what we're told because one person says to."

Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz walks to the podium to enter his guilty plea, Friday, Oct. 15, 2021.
Nikolas Cruz will plead guilty to murder in the 2018 mass shooting that killed 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, his lawyer told a judge on Friday.

Cruz's attorney told a judge his client will plead guilty next week to all charges in what was the deadliest U.S. high school shooting. He faced 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of attempted murder.

Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer noted Cruz, now 23, could change his mind before his plea hearing, which she agreed to set for 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Navy is threatening demotions, pay cuts and a ban on travel for SEALs who have religious objections to the vaccine

A growing number of U.S. Navy SEALs who are seeking a religious exemption to the Defense Department's COVID-19 vaccine mandate are being threatened and, in some cases, harassed into submission, Fox News has learned.

A series of new directives by the Navy are promising severe punishment, including demotions, pay cuts and a ban on travel for SEALs, and other Navy service members, who do not comply with the vaccine mandate. For some SEALs who are in the process of seeking a religious exemption to the mandate, the process is nearly impossible to successfully complete to get a waiver, Fox News has been told.

Michael Berry, First Liberty Institute's general counsel and Lt. Col. U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, who is representing approximately 34 active-duty SEALs and two reservists, told Fox News that the Navy's new directives are illegal and infringe upon an individual's First Amendment freedoms.

Hundreds of MI residents attend election integrity rally in capitol: Demand GOP-controlled legislature begin forensic audit

michigan protest forensic audit election

Protests at the Michigan state capitol building, October 13, 2021
Michigan residents are not giving up on their fight for a forensic audit in their state, where Trump trounced Hillary in the general election in 2016. But, unfortunately, Michigan's legislature is controlled by a spineless GOP majority who are more concerned about their next job than representing the will of the people who hired them.

Michigan residents have been demanding a forensic audit in their state ever since hundreds of GOP and Independent poll challengers submitted affidavits with stunning stories of voter fraud, abuse, and intimidation at the TCF Center in Detroit, where a large majority of the state's absentee ballots were processed and counted.

Appeals court allows Texas abortion law to remain in effect

5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals
A federal appeals court on Thursday evening ruled that Texas' restrictive abortion law can remain in effect even as it is litigated over its constitutionality.

The 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to reject a U.S. Justice Department appeal.

The decision means Texas can enforce its new law barring most abortions as early as six weeks after conception.

The decision marks the third time since October that the appeals court has sided with Texas, and it moves the case one step closer to reaching the Supreme Court.

Interior ministry spokesman Sayed Khosti said on Twitter: "We are saddened to learn that an explosion took place in a mosque of the Shia brotherhood in the first district of Kandahar city in which a number of our compatriots were martyred and wounded."

Comment: Russia has been warning of the build-up of ISIS terrorist numbers in Afghanistan since 2018. Qui bono?

Loudoun County: Family of alleged rape victim is suing school district

The family of a girl who was allegedly raped in her school bathroom is pursuing civil action against Loudoun County Public Schools under the provisions of Title IX after the release of The Daily Wire's blockbuster report, alleging that Loudoun County Public Schools covered up the sexual assault.

As The Daily Wire exclusively reported, the victim's father, Scott Smith, said that a boy allegedly wearing a skirt went into a girls' bathroom at a local high school where he sexually assaulted Smith's ninth-grade daughter.

Comment: More from Breitbart:
Parents in Loudoun County, Virginia, were livid Tuesday night over an alleged coverup of sexual assault as debate rages over a transgender policy allowing male students to use female facilities such as restrooms and locker rooms.

Tuesday's Loudoun County school board meeting, which has been a national hotbed of controversy over the implementation of radical Critical Race Theory and transgender policies, was dominated by parents speaking up about the alleged coverup of a sexual assault by a student who identifies as a transgender woman, according to an explosive report. Many parents called for the resignations of school board members.

As Breitbart News reported, the father of an alleged Stone Bridge High School victim, Scott Smith, "claimed a boy who was wearing a skirt had entered the girls' bathroom at the high school and sexually assaulted his ninth-grade daughter." Subsequently, "the boy was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio that day at school."

According to ABC7 News, "the same juvenile suspect was charged with a second sexual assault at another Loudoun County school after the May 28 incident."

At Tuesday's school board meeting, members were questioned heavily on how this could happen in their county, with speaker Monica Sadeghi saying, "How do you expect parents across this county to drop off their kids and entrust you all to keep them safe when you've shown on more than one occasion you are not up for the job?"

ABC7 also noted that the school "cannot comment on" how the incident with Smith's daughter "didn't cause the discipline to rise to the level of immediate expulsion."

To the point, speaker Theresa Lieberman noted that, "When the Catholic Church passed predator priest from parish to parish the walls came eventually crashing down on them. And they were finally held accountable for the abuse. When is doctor [Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott] Ziegler and this board going to be held accountable?"

Project Veritas: Pfizer scientist admits Covid antibodies transfer during pregnancy "through the umbilical cord"

Project Veritas on Friday released undercover video of a Pfizer scientist admitting natural Covid antibodies transfer during pregnancy through the umbilical cord.

Nick Karl, a scientist at Pfizer said of pregnant women: "it's either you get antibodies naturally or vaccinated you pass it through."

Meanwhile, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has completely ignored natural immunity and continues to push the Covid vaccine on pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Comment: In all the history of vaccination it has never been a policy to inject pregnant women until now. Why the upending of one of the cornerstones of immunology by the CDC, and against the WHO's recommendation? We are more than nine months in to the vaccine push now. The tragic fallout of the mandated vaccine campaign will be upon us soon.
