San Francisco Mayor London Breed is facing a backlash after being filmed dancing carefree and maskless in a club despite the city's mandate. US President Joe Biden is meanwhile facing his own public-masking critiques.

The video of Breed, reportedly from this week, shows the mayor in a crowd, dancing and singing, seemingly aware she is being filmed.


Comment: Obviously the rules are meant only for the ordinary people, not for the government officials and the so called "elites". It is just another proof of how dangerous the virus is and what is happening with this fake pandemic.

Will enough people finally understand how they are being gaslighted and take their own destiny in their own hands?

China risks 'colossal Covid-19 outbreak' by opening up, inadequate study finds

Lifting travel restrictions could have a huge impact on cases in China, according to a study by Peking University mathematicians.
China could face more than 630,000 coronavirus infections a day if it dropped its zero-tolerance approach and followed other countries by lifting travel bans, according to forecasting by Peking University mathematicians.


Comment: It's become quite clear that the vast majority of forecasts and models were wrong in the extreme. Moreover, with the vast majority of those infections being relatively mild, does it really matter? However, even if the model were accurate, they may be able to ease the burden by staggering the opening up, and resolving to never go that route again.


In the report published in China CDC Weekly by the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, the four mathematicians argued that China was not ready and could not afford to lift entry-exit quarantine measures without more efficient vaccinations or specific treatment.

"The estimates revealed the real possibility of a colossal outbreak which would almost certainly put an unbearable burden on the medical system," the authors said in the report, dated Wednesday.

Comment: This further proves that lockdowns don't work and neither do any of the jabs; moreover, both make the situation many, many times worse. It also reveals that, for some reason, China has been unwilling to consent to proven medications like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, despite its refusal to act in lockstep with the nefarious agenda much of the rest of the world has been enforcing, such as national lockdowns and mandating the injections. That said, as hinted at in the final paragraph, it may be that these alternative interventions may soon receive more attention. It may also be that there are additional reasons for China's reluctance to finally 'open up'.

Taliban offering tourists trips to site of Buddah statue blown up by predecessors in 2001 for $5 charge

Fresh from their conquest of Afghanistan, the Taliban are welcoming intrepid tourists to the famous Bamiyan Buddha statues, ancient monuments that the militant group blew up two decades ago.

Hewn out of a rocky cliffside in central Afghanistan's Bamyan Valley around the sixth Century AD, the Bamiyan Buddhas stood more than 150 feet tall for 1,400 years, until the Taliban blew them to pieces with high explosives in 2001, shortly before the US invasion ended their brief reign over Afghanistan.

Now the Taliban are back in charge, and have thrown open the site to the public. According to an NBC News report this week, curious tourists can hand over the equivalent of $5 to Taliban guards at a ticket booth, and gaze at the empty holes where the Buddhas once stood.

Comment: Evidently the Taliban might need a bit more time working out their tourist attractions and brushing up on their public relation skills.

Marine to sue Wal-Mart for refusing to fill prescription for life-saving Ivermectin

Bill Salier - Former Marine and Iowa farmer
As a Marine, Bill Salier was shot at by snipers in Mogadishu during his nearly five years serving his country. With an impressive security clearance, he was trusted to guard the Presidency from threats on station at Camp David. For the next 20 years he farmed 250 acres in Iowa producing corn, soybeans and pigs to feed American families.

But his local Wal-Mart pharmacist didn't trust his judgment to fill a life-saving dose of Ivermectin when COVID attacked his body last month and corporate policy was to deny such medicine based on politics, not science.

Marine denied medicine by multinational retailer for invalid reasons

Salier said:
"I was very concerned I was going to die. I was falling asleep during my doctor's medical examinations. They told me I was in the midst of a 'Cytokine storm' and 8-9 days in, I was praying for a miracle because my body was failing me. I've been active and strong my entire life, but I was in desperate shape and couldn't form words to even communicate the incredible pain I was feeling all over my body."

'Dark money' organization may have helped Biden win

A shadowy non-profit known as the Voter Participation Center reportedly spent over $100 million ahead of the 2020 presidential election to attract hundreds of thousands of votes from those considered likely to support Joe Biden.

The Washington-based group raised $85 million and spent an even larger amount delivering millions of mail and digital notifications to voters during 2020, The Hill reported this week. Accessing the group's tax filings, the news outlet noted that last year's spending dwarfed the $14 million it spent during the previous election in 2016.

Although the Voter Participation Center (VPC) does not explicitly campaign for specific candidates, it targets younger voters, minorities and unmarried women - all of whom traditionally favor Democrats but typically generate below-average turnouts.

The group's CEO Tom Lopach told The Hill it had delivered some 371 million pieces of mail over the 2020 election cycle, urging voters to register for mail-in voting or to vote early. They also apparently sent out another 300 million digital messages through ads and emails.

Crowds in Melbourne protest against mandatory vaccinations and lockdown measures on Saturday.
A fresh round of rallies against mandatory Covid vaccination has hit Australia, with hundreds of thousands protesting in dozens of cities. Aerial footage captured huge crowds blocking central streets.

New rallies all across the country happened on Saturday, as people demonstrated for more freedom in relation to coronavirus vaccination. Organized by the Millions March Against Mandatory Vaccination group, massive protests swept central Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth, along with 30 other cities and towns in Australia.

Claiming that vaccine mandates are discriminatory, people protested outside parliamentary buildings and blocked central streets, calling for resignations in state governments and an end to what some call "tyranny."

One million Victorian workers face the sack as vaccine deadline expires

COVID vaccine
About one million Victorian workers must now be fully vaccinated to continue working after a major vaccination deadline passed overnight.

All those in jobs on the state's authorised worker list were required to have two doses of a COVID-19 vaccination by Friday, November 26.

Industries on the list include AFL and other professional athletes, lawyers, journalists, mining workers, court staff and personal trainers.

It comes as the Services Vic app has been updated to allow parents and guardians to add their children's vaccination certificates.

Notre Dame is being 'built back better' as a 'woke theme park' devoted to environmentalism and social justice

Flames on the roof of Notre-Dame on 15 April 2019.
Using the church arson as a means to "Build Back Better," each of the chapels will be dedicated to social justice issues, including a chapel dedicated to the environment and others with African and Asian themes.

The Notre Dame, which was burned down in a mysterious fire in 2019 is being rebuilt as a "woke theme park."

Instead of rebuilding the historical cathedral as a religious monument, the reconstruction of Notre Dame will be revamped with a "discovery trail" that will lead visitors through 14 themed chapels of varying woke quantities dedicated to social justice, designed to be accessible for non-Catholics.

Using the church arson as a means to "Build Back Better," each of the chapels will be dedicated to social justice issues, including a chapel dedicated to the environment and others with African and Asian themes.

Comment: Notre Dame was beloved in its original form, and early fundraising efforts for its restoration promised only to restore the ancient building to its former glory. Those promises have been broken. How is it the officials in charge of the project feel emboldened to override the wishes of the populace?

Scottish schoolgirls sensibly 'boycott gender-neutral toilets'

The introduction of gender-neutral toilets in Scottish schools hasn't panned out as activists hoped, with girls in one school reportedly refusing to use the facilities due to misbehaviour and vandalism by boys.

Gender-neutral bathrooms are becoming increasingly common in Scottish educational institutes. Schools in Angus, Dundee, East Renfrewshire and Edinburgh have all introduced such facilities, and all new school buildings - primary and secondary - in Edinburgh will soon have unisex toilets and communal hand-washing facilities by default. This move to gender neutrality is supported by Scottish National Party politicians and by the Scottish Equality and Human Rights Commission, which warned schools in 2019 that they leave themselves open to lawsuits by not providing such facilities.

Comment: The girls are acting on ancient but correct instincts as a multitude of incidents have shown. Some institutions have pushed back on the LGBT organizations' radical agenda.

Appeals court blocks California vaccine mandate for prison workers

prison worker guard
A federal appeals court on Friday issued a temporary stay of a coronavirus vaccine mandate for prison workers.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued the stay, postponing the Jan. 12 deadline to get thousands of prison workers vaccinated until at least March, The Associated Press reported.

The move by the appeals court came after a request for a stay of a September ruling by a lower court pending an appeal. The appeals court also moved up opening briefs to Dec. 13, according to AP.
