In this June 21, 2019 file photo, George Soros, founder and chairman of the Open Society Foundations, looks before the Joseph A. Schumpeter award ceremony in Vienna, Austria.
After facing strong condemnation, a Hungarian commissioner on Sunday begrudgingly retracted an article comparing American-Hungarian billionaire and philanthropist George Soros, a staunch critic of Hungary's government, to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.

"Europe is George Soros' gas chamber," Szilard Demeter, ministerial commissioner and head of the Petofi Literary Museum in Budapest, wrote in an opinion Saturday in the pro-government Origo media outlet. "Poison gas flows from the capsule of a multicultural open society, which is deadly to the European way of life."

The comments drew outrage from Hungary's Jewish community, including the Unified Hungarian Jewish Congregation, which called the article "tasteless" and "unforgivable."

Over 300 detained in Belarus days after embattled President Lukashenko promises he'll stand down

Demonstrators, some of them wearing face masks to help curb the spread of the coronavirus attend an opposition rally to protest the official presidential election results in Minsk, Belarus, Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020. A human rights group in Belarus says over 180 people have been detained during Sunday protests against the country's authoritarian president, who won his sixth term in office in a vote widely seen as rigged.
A human rights group in Belarus says over 300 people have been detained during Sunday protests against the country's authoritarian president, who won his sixth term in office in a vote widely seen as rigged.

The protests took place in Minsk, the capital, and other cities and attracted thousands of people. In Minsk, large crowds gathered in different parts of the city despite the snowy weather for what has been dubbed as the Neighbors' March, blocking the roads in some areas.

"Neighbor for neighbor against dictatorship," one protest banner read.

Comment: RT's report provides a bit more balance on the situation:
Footage emerged on Sunday of crowds of demonstrators marching through Minsk, as well as other cities across the troubled Eastern European nation. In one dramatic clip that social media users claimed was taken in the capital, a police officer is attacked from behind as authorities chase activists down the road.

Photographs from the country also show the nation's top riot police, OMON, pursuing protestors on foot and making arrests. The world's media has become reliant on the Telegram messaging service and other local sources since international media organizations were banned from Belarus.

Hundreds of thousands have participated in marches, boycotts and strikes, calling for a fresh vote.

On Friday, Lukashenko told journalists that he would stand down after a new constitution was ratified. He added that "with the new constitution, I will not work with you as President." He has previously said that a transition of power before the document was finalized would be a "disaster." At the time, Russian President Vladimir Putin welcomed the commitment and said that reform on this basis would be "logical, timely and appropriate."

When a vote might be held on the matter is still unclear, but it could take place next year. Lukashenko's comments were perceived by many as the strongest indication that he might step down since the crisis in the country began, as the declaration came just a day after a visit from Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Moscow's top diplomat used the occasion to bring greetings from the Kremlin and to ask the Belarusian leader not to forget "the promises made to Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] in Sochi." This was interpreted by many as an insistence that the transition of power goes ahead.

Former Presidential candidate, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who fled to Lithuania after the elections, said on Sunday that "every week the regime sends its forces with tear gas and stun grenades to beat and scare" those who gather "to protest peacefully against Lukashenko's regime."
For some perspective, it's worth noting that while 300 were detained in Belarus, 150 were arrested in the UK for protesting against the tyrannical lockdown and tens of thousands protested in Paris on Saturday against France's new draconian 'security' law.

Vitamin D to be delivered free to care homes as lockdown leads to increased deficiency


Free deliveries of vitamin D will begin in January
There are fears that as a result of lockdowns triggered by the pandemic, many people may be at a higher risk of deficiency.

Free vitamin D deliveries will be offered to around 2.7 million vulnerable people by the government, officials have said.

Vitamin D is necessary for immune system health, leading experts to question whether it may help reduce the risk or severity of the coronavirus.

Comment: It's considered necessary and yet it has taken the government this long to start prescribing it during what they claim is a deadly pandemic?

Care homes across England will be sent the supplement automatically for their residents, in plans revealed on Saturday.

Comment: As noted by one Tweeter, disastrously wrong dietary guidelines mandated by the government, as well as the appalling quality of food served to the country's vulnerable, are also partly to blame for a lack of vitamin D:

It's likely that the above supplementation will not be sufficient and it certainly won't make up for the very real, and possibly more important, psychological and physiological impact of being locked up and deprived of human contact for nearly a year: Everything You Think You Know About Coronavirus...


'We're not backing down': Staten Island pub declares itself 'autonomous zone' in defiance of Cuomo

A pub in Staten Island, New York, established itself as an "autonomous zone" in defiance of Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 edicts.

"!ATTENTION! We hereby declare this establishment an !!!AUTONOMOUS ZONE!!!" signs proclaimed outside Mac's Public House in Grant City, according to the New York Post. "We refuse to abide by any rules and regulations put forth by the Mayor of NYC and Governor of NY State."

The signs referenced last summer's short-lived anarchist settlement in Seattle, Washington, which fizzled when law enforcement disbanded them.

Michigan witness: I saw the Detroit plan to destroy all provisional ballots, hurt Republicans

adam de angeli

Whistleblower from #DetroitLeaks comes forward
Michigan activist Adam de Angeli has come forward to disclose that he was the whistleblower behind #DetroitLeaks, that showed the plan to make the steal.

The #DetroitLeaks series suggests that there was an official plan all along to commit voter fraud and cover it up.

#DetroitLeaks was a series of articles published at Big League Politics by intrepid journalist Shane Trejo that showed Detroit training poll workers on how to cover-up voter fraud, destroy ballots from people they didn't like, and use COVID as a bad faith excuse to keep Republicans away.

"These people were vicious - I saw all kinds of illegal behavior" - Michigan election witness who saw 4 AM illegal ballot drop for Biden speaks out
Ben Wetmore; November 29, 2020 at 8:10am

Andrew Sitto, Republican poll challenger at the TCF Center in Detroit, saw poll workers filling out votes for the Democrats on election night!

Official Detroit poll workers stole votes by marking non-Biden votes for Biden, Sitto says.

"I saw all types of illegal behavior."


He describes 4am ballots being brought to the counting tables and spread out.

They would run the same ballots through the tabulators multiple times, "we were told to look for this" Sitto says. When they went through a second time, they were committing voter fraud according to Sitto.

Other witnesses have described the ballot duplication process, and thousands of spare ballots laying around with an official duplication process at the TCF Center.

Explosively, Sitto says: "I didn't see any ballots with legitimate reasons to be duplicated. Every ballot was normal" when it came in.

"The whole thing is illegal. The whole night was illegal."

Sitto believes he and another poll challenger saw blatant voter fraud at one of the duplication tables, where poll workers are supposed to copy votes precisely from damaged ballots onto new ones. He saw the poll workers duplicating a mixed-ticket ballot while a group of Democrat operatives distracted and forced the Republican poll challenger away from the table. "The moment [the Republican poll challenger] looked away, they filled in the Democrat ticket."

Sitto personally saw voter fraud in favor of Joe Biden in Detroit.

Sitto also described seeing poll workers running the same stacks of ballots multiple times though a tabulator. He also said poll workers grabbed handfuls of empty ballots and hid them at their tables. All poll workers had pens, which he believes could have been used to illegally fill out the blank ballots.

"I saw them taking empty ballots that should only be used for duplicates, stashing them and probably voting them later straight-ticket for Joe Biden."

Sitto described pens at most tables, and poll workers regularly grabbing duplicate ballots for no valid reason. The pens would be necessary if they were manually filling out ballots at the counting tables.

"These people were vicious."

"I've made reports about this" Sitto says, though there's no indication if any official has pursued Sitto's claims of witnessed voter fraud.

Voter fraud is the "illegal interference with the process of an election" and Sitto is in a long line of other witnesses who have said they personally witnessed illegal interference in the process of Detroit's elections.

Describing the official Detroit officials conspiring with left-wing poll workers to fraud the vote: "It was a collective attack."

When the exhausted Republican poll challengers took a break on Wednesday, Sitto said the Michigan state government notified the TCF personnel that COVID-related occupancy restrictions would now be enforced on the facility. As a result, he and other Republican poll challengers were locked out at a crucial moment, and he witnessed security coming in and the windows being covered up.

"They counted the military ballots in the most secret way they could," he said.

However, Sitto noticed that some people were allowed back in during that time. "The Dems and the media were welcomed in," he said.

"There were two systems. There was their system and our system. Their system was very open and welcoming to their people. And our system was 'Fall in line. Follow the rules. COVID restrictions.'"

Matching other statements, Sitto described that his challenges to illegal ballots were ignored.

"They would just continue on."

If Sitto's account is accurate, it could explain the numerous eyewitness accounts of the Democrats harassing, stalking, and intimidating Republican volunteers, effectively obstructing them from viewing the counting and duplication operations.

Sitto also described that, as a Republican, he and his family requested absentee ballots and never received them.


South Wales Police branded 'Covid-19 STASI' after preventing couple from delivering Christmas gifts to family

A police check point in Kilgetty, Wales, Britain October 24, 2020.
Welsh police have nabbed a couple trying to take Christmas presents to relatives in Cardiff, sparking accusations that the enforcement of "draconian" Covid-19 measures has taken precedence over more pressing public safety issues.

The 'gift-smugglers' were turned away after travelling from Essex to drop off packages for their family in the Welsh capital, South Wales Police said, claiming that the culprits had violated recently-implemented Covid-19 legislation. Police did not disclose whether the pair were fined or faced other punishment for their apparent misdeed.

The couple were stopped as part of 110 random vehicle checks carried out in Cardiff over the past 24 hours, as part of a temporary measure aimed at ensuring that outside visitors were not engaging in any 'non-essential' travel. Twelve people have been slapped with fines and 15 others have received warnings since the new policing power was implemented on Friday. The searches will end in the late afternoon on November 29.

Candace Owens celebrates win against 'communist' censors as Facebook fact-checkers forced to remove 'correction' to Biden post

Conservative commentator Candace Owens is celebrating forcing PolitiFact, a third-party fact-checker for Facebook, to issue a correction to a previous 'fact-check' of her post stating Joe Biden is not technically president-elect.

"Weeks ago, Facebook censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that Joe Biden is NOT the President-elect," Owens tweeted on Saturday.

After PolitiFact, which works with Facebook to police misinformation on the social media platform, 'corrected' her original post - a video explaining Biden is not the official president-elect until all state votes have been certified and Trump's various lawsuits have played out - Owens said she got lawyers involved, and PolitiFact ultimately issued a correction to their original post.

"Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for Facebook. On Nov. 20, an appeal to that decision was made on behalf of Ms. Owens," PolitiFact posted to Facebook. "PolitiFact approved the appeal on Nov. 20, determined that a correction was appropriate, and removed the false rating."

Breaking the social contract: Government wages war on the people.

war on people
We the people, are at war with our government/s, whether individuals comprehend it or not.

It is the inescapable conclusion after months of increasingly irrational and authoritarian policies steam rolled out, allegedly, in response to Covid19. Inescapable because, there is now a profusion of expert opinion and testimony that we are being lied to, and the Corona fraud is being used to further the malicious agenda of the World Economic Forum, who gleefully acknowledge Covid19 as being the catalyst for acceleration of their scheme.

Government's globally have viciously shredded the social contract, and systematically lay waste to the lives of millions of their constituents. It is patently not an act of incompetence, but a deliberate, treasonous act of societal immolation. Cynically sacrificing the lower and middle classes, to the religion of the World Economic Forum's Great Reset agenda. And they won't stop there.

Despite the calamitous predictions again proving unfounded, Daily Mail has revealed, plans for more testing, tiered lockdowns, vaccinations and a "freedom" pass.

Don't believe messages about 'olive branches' and 'moving forward' from anti-Trump celebs & pols - they're as hateful as ever

Alyssa Milano is the latest celeb to offer an "olive branch" to Trump backers after calling them racist in the past. Less than 48 hours later, she was back to her venomous rhetoric, proving calls for unity are just lip service.

"I'd like to extend an olive branch to Trump supporters," Milano tweeted this week. "I am ready to move #ForwardTogether. There's so much work to do to heal the nation. Let's be a part of the solution and not add to the problems we face."

The actress-turned-Democrat-activist called for other liberals to join her in this supposed call for unity, and reading the replies it's pretty clear a Joe Biden victory is going to do nothing to solve the bitter divisions in this country.

It's in the code: Hanky-panky in Virginia's votes

Based on Internet blogger "Pede's" analysis of "votes switched" from Trump to Biden, and of "votes lost" (thrown away) -- mostly votes for Trump, and my own analyses to detect imaginary "votes added" for Biden, I have decided to continue examining states where everylegalvote.com says ballot fraud occurred in the 2020 presidential election.

"Pede" identified two states -- Virginia and Minnesota -- where there were hundreds of thousands of "votes lost," a sure indicator of fraud, even though those states' votes are not being recounted, nor are there legal challenges. Additionally, AT's Andrea Widburg, on November 16 in "There may have been massive voter fraud in Virginia", noted strange happenings in the vote totals and allocations in the wee hours of November 4. I have read the JSON code provided by the New York Times (see below), and I concur.
nyt data
Translating the code in the graphic above, we see that at 11:03 PM EST on November 3, total votes were 2,724,165, and Trump had 1,419,290 votes (52.1%), Biden had 1.258,564 votes (46.2%), other candidates had 46,311 votes (1.4%).

Comment: Warning. A lot of internet sleuths - including the pede linked to above - are using the NYT to come up with precise vote counts, but these numbers can be misleading, as Nick points out below. The NYT data only gives a percentage (with three digits) and a total vote count. So each candidate total must be calculated using the percentage. But these should be displayed as a range of numbers. Because of rounding, 52.1% can mean any percentage from 52.05% to 52.14999%. Most if not all "lost votes" can be explained by this. (See this guy's demonstration, for example.) But with that in mind, keep reading, because Nick has found something else.

Between 11:14 and 11:42 came a big Biden vote dump. At 11:43, when the dump had ended, total votes were 3,368,181, and Trump had 1,512,627 votes (45.8%) and Biden had 1,771,663 votes (52.6%). During this half-hour period when the fraudsters switched the lead from Trump to Biden, Trump gained 93,337 votes (a 6.58% increase), and Biden gained 513,099 votes (a 40.77% increase). That is, there were about 5.5 Biden votes for every Trump vote during this interval.

Comment: At the very least, this shows that data was being 'updated' and changed in real time in ways that don't make immediate sense. It is up to the vote machine companies to now explain just what was going on and to account for these 'glitches'. But we can't just take their word for it. They must provide original logs of all data that then made its way to the NYT feeds. If they can't - if that data is missing, corrupted, or anything less than fully transparent - that suggests they have a lot to hide.
