Protesters block road in Netherlands over Covid controls

Vaccine mandate protest

Demonstrators take part in a protest against a partial coronavirus lockdown and against the Dutch government policy on Coolsingel street on November 19, 2021, in the port city of Rotterdam.
Truckers and other motorists have been trapped in a four-mile-long traffic jam on the outskirts of the Dutch city of Rotterdam amid a protest against the government's Covid measures.

According to local media, as many as 200 activists blocked the gates of a major port in the city's harbor on Thursday. For several hours, they prevented any vehicles from driving in and out of the cargo hub, which, in turn, led to massive traffic congestion on the highway leading to the port. Police engaged in negotiations with the protesters, who eventually relented and left the site later in the evening.

The group behind the protest action is reportedly Dockers United, who are staunchly opposed to government Covid policies. The organization's biggest concern is that authorities could soon make it mandatory for employees to have a vaccination or recovery certificate to enter the workplace, which, as the group argues, would be tantamount to excluding people from society on an "unconstitutional basis." They are also generally unhappy with the curbs introduced by the Dutch government, with 'Don't normalize what's not normal' being a translation of one of their slogans.

Gas rationed, travel restricted in parts of B.C. after storm washes out highways

The British Columbia government is rationing gasoline and restricting travel in southern parts of the province after an unprecedented storm severed highways and cut supply lines.

Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said Friday a limit of 30 litres of fuel per visit to a gas station is an important step to maintaining the supply as the province works to bring in more gas by truck and barge from Alberta, Washington state, Oregon and California.

He said the order would apply for 10 to 11 days, and he trusts that people won't be greedy and will keep critical services in mind as they focus on residents whose communities have been devastated by flooding.

Demonstrators protest against the government’s restrictions.
Seven people injured during clashes in Dutch city over reintroduction of partial lockdown and plans for more restrictions.

Police have opened fire on protesters and seven people were injured after rioting erupted during a demonstration against Covid-19 restrictions in central Rotterdam, in what the city's mayor described as an "orgy of violence".

Ahmed Aboutaleb told reporters in the early hours of Saturday morning that "on a number of occasions the police felt it necessary to draw their weapons to defend themselves" as rioters rampaged through the shopping district, starting fires and throwing stones and fireworks at officers.

Democrats, pundits declare Rittenhouse verdict 'miscarriage of justice'

Kyle Rittenhouse walks during his trial at the Kenosha County Courthouse in Kenosha, Wis., November 19, 2021.
After the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial returned a verdict of "not guilty," Democratic politicians and pundits reacted in outrage, alleging that the U.S. justice system is hopelessly compromised by racial bias.

Nikole Hannah Jones, the mastermind behind the New York Times' "1619" project, which was designed to inculcate in students a revisionist American history teaching that slavery is intrinsic to the country's national fabric, said that the dismissal of Rittenhouse's charges proves that systemic racism is alive and well in the U.S.

"In this country, you can even kill white people and get away with it if those white people are fighting for Black lives. This is the legacy of 1619," she tweeted.

Comment: It's very clear that those making the comments above are either ill-informed on the details of the case (being generous) or are ideologically possessed (more likely), and have simply continued to parrot the mainstream narrative about 'white supremacy'. Rittenhouse was very clearly acting in self-defense and there is zero evidence of any racial motivation in his actions.

The Lower Manhattan Community School plans to separate students by race when discussing social justice issues next week.
A Manhattan junior high school plans to racially separate students while discussing identity and social justice topics next week, The Post has learned.

The Lower Manhattan Community School will conduct the controversial exercises as part of its mission to "undo the legacy of racism and oppression in this country that impacts our school community," according to an email sent to parents.


Comment: Undo the legacy of racism... by being racist. That should work.


Kids in grades seven and eight will opt into one of five categories, Principal Shanna Douglas wrote in the message.

Portland Rittenhouse protest declared riot; windows smashed, objects thrown at police

portland rittenhouse riot
Police in Portland, Oregon, declared a riot in the downtown area Friday night after a protest following the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict became violent and destructive near the Multnomah County Justice Center, authorities said.

Rioters were throwing objects at officers, smashing windows and damaging doors of city facilities, including the justice center's front gate, FOX 12 of Oregon reported.

"Due to violent, destructive behavior by a significant part of the crowd, the gathering in downtown Portland is a RIOT. All participants are instructed to proceed away to the WEST," the Portland Police Bureau wrote on Twitter.

Comment: This was entirely predictable. Given that the mainstream press refused to accurately report on the circumstances of the trial, continuing to push the narrative of a racist teen deliberately killing 'innocent' protesters (protesters who were actually rioters; and who were actually convicted criminals, one being a serial child rapist), how could we expect anything less than riots when actual justice was carried out?

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.
