Virginia schools accused of covering up sexual assault of girl in 'gender neutral' bathroom

protest school sexual assault
The parent of a Loudon County, Virginia student accused the school district of covering up the sexual assault of their teen daughter that occurred in a gender neutral bathroom back in May.

Scott Smith, the parent of the student that was sexually assaulted, protested the Loudoun County school board on June 22 with hundreds of other community members. Smith was arrested that evening when the school board pushed for law enforcement to deem the meeting an "unlawful assembly" after individuals vocally opposed the school's transgender policies.

Netflix fires three employees who tried to force their way into an executive meeting over Dave Chappelle's alleged 'transphobia'

Terra Field Dave Chappelle
Netflix fired three employees on Monday that forced their way into an executive meeting where the company discussed how they should handle comedian Dave Chappelle's stand-up special that has since garnered outrage among the LGBTQ community over "transphobic" remarks.

The exclusive meeting featured Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos and the company's top 500 employees.

During the two-day business review, Sarandos briefed the company on how they should be equipped to handle backlash from Chappelle's controversial special The Closer.

Comment: What seems clear is that the majority of those complaining about Chappelle's comedy special haven't actually watched it. He dedicates a lot of time to this 'transphobia' question and lays out his arguments rather cogently (and even tells a long story about his long friendship with a fellow-comedian trans woman). It's a universe away from 'they want us dead'.

Feds to deploy 'non-toxic gas in NYC subways to test biological attack readiness'

Times Square

Times Square subway station
New York City's response plans for a chemical or biological attack will be put to the test in the coming weeks as part of a study of the city's subway system.

The MTA says the Department of Homeland Security working alongside a team of researchers and city agencies will deploy a non-toxic gas this month at about 120 locations operated by transit agencies.

The tests will be conducted on five separate days between Oct. 18 and 29.

Media now claims that "double jabbed" Brits who have bad colds are actually suffering from COVID

blowing nose
Need to bump those numbers up.

Causing yet more confusion, the media is now claiming that "double jabbed" Brits suffering from bad colds are actually infected with COVID-19.

Wait, what?

One of the biggest newspapers in Britain, the Daily Mirror, is now reporting, "Brits suffering from miserable colds could actually be enduring breakthrough cases of Covid-19 without realising, potentially allowing the virus to continue to spread."

Comment: One possibility, not brought up in the above article, is that the vaccines themselves are making people more vulnerable to cold and flu viruses by increasing the burden on the immune system. Or, it's also possible that keeping everyone locked in their homes for over a year prevented their immune systems from coming into contact with the usual seasonal cold and flu viruses meaning that this year they're more easily overwhelmed. This was predicted earlier this year: British Covid modellers predict 'severe flu next winter because lockdowns prevented usual herd immunity'.

Federal judge grants preliminary injunction, blocking Iowa ban on school mask mandates

A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction Friday to continue to block Iowa's ban against school mask mandates until a court has officially ruled on the law signed by Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) in May, NBC News reported.

District Judge Robert Pratt granted the preliminary injunction Friday, just before a temporary restraining order against the law was set to expire next week, according to the Des Moines Register.

Pratt noted in his ruling "the important public interests at stake," as he mentioned the "the current trajectory of pediatric Covid cases in Iowa since the start of the school year," according to NBC News.

Comment: It seems like a tricky issue, until you realize that 1) masks don't do anything to protect against infection (literally nothing) and 2) to force children to wear masks that may hinder their own health to appease the deluded parents of disabled children is criminal.

School boards, bastions of local democracy, persecute dissident parents

Shelley Slebrch and other angry parents and community members protest after a Loudoun County School Board meeting was halted by the school board because the crowd refused to quiet down, in Ashburn, Virginia, June 22, 2021.
American parents are organizing to fight racist critical race theories being taught in their kids' schools. Attorney General Merrick Garland, once touted as a moderate, has responded by asking the FBI to treat them as domestic terrorists.

As befits the Biden administration, this over-the-top authoritarianism is accompanied by the stench of corruption, as it turns out that Garland's son-in-law is in the business of selling educational materials on CRT.

Garland's self-dealing and thuggery are grounds for resignation. But that isn't the worst thing that's happened. Bad as it is, the Biden administration's poisonous combination of graft and authoritarianism can be remedied by getting rid of the administration — something that, if polls are any indication, is eminently doable.

The bigger problem is that school boards all over America seem to be growing ever more authoritarian themselves. Instead of serving as bastions of small-scale representative democracy, boards seem to regard themselves as above accountability to the voters and parents.

Comment: Labelling people as "domestic terrorists" because they disagree with government policy opens a huge new door to totalitarian rule.

Supporting CRT, means that you can't or you don't want to see the reality as it is. It doesn't mean that you are fighting the racism as they are telling you, it means you are supporting it, whether conscious or not.

People must wake up from this evil psychopathic spell, fear nothing and fight for their children and their own rights and lives.

'F*ck Joe Biden!' chants erupt during Ole Miss-Arkansas game

biden college
College football country hasn't been kind to President Joe Biden since the season kicked off. The trend of anti-Biden chants from fans continued amid an offensive slugfest between the Ole Miss Rebels and Arkansas Razorbacks. Despite the dismissiveness of the establishment press, who tried to play off chants at a NASCAR XFinity event as "Let's Go Brandon!", it has taken root in true American fashion in student sections and stadium bowls up and down the country.


While the thunderous chants originated in southern states where the president is deeply unpopular, from Auburn to Indiana to Texas A&M, and now at Ole Miss, it's spreading to sports arenas across the nation; anti-Biden chants were heard at the most recent iteration of the "Subway Series" between the New York Mets and the New York Yankees.

With playoff baseball kicking off, plenty of exciting college football still on the schedule and the start of the NHL and NBA seasons just around the corner, it remains to be seen whether this is just a blip of discontent, or a titantic, grassroots rejection of Biden's presidency.

Ontario health sector braces for worse staff shortages as vaccine mandates come due

hospital
Hundreds of Ontario workers in hospitals and long-term care could be off the job in the coming weeks because they did not get vaccinated against COVID-19, further complicating what advocates call a "perfect storm" of staff shortages.

The president of a union representing workers in long-term care, hospitals and retirement homes said the staffing problem, driven by low wages, lack of full-time jobs and poor work conditions, predates the pandemic, and vaccine mandates will likely add to it.

"It'll have an impact on staffing levels that are already at a critical point," Sharleen Stewart of SEIU Healthcare said in an interview. "It's kind of stirred up the perfect storm now."

A deadline of Nov. 15 has been set for Ontario long-term care staff to get immunized or lose access to their workplaces. It's up to the homes what happens after that, but many operators had already set dates to place unvaccinated people on leave, citing the devastating impact of COVID-19 and the risk of the highly transmissible Delta variant.

Google and YouTube to prohibit advertisements on content with false information on climate change

google youtube
Google and YouTube will soon prohibit advertisements on content that "contradicts well-established scientific consensus around the existence and causes of climate change," Google announced Thursday. The decision will prevent the creators of such content from earning ad revenue from Google.

The advertisement ban, which will be implemented next month, targets "content referring to climate change as a hoax or a scam, claims denying that long-term trends show the global climate is warming, and claims denying that greenhouse gas emissions or human activity contribute to climate change," Google said. The platforms will also ban ads that promote that type of content.

"In recent years we've heard directly from a growing number of our advertising and publisher partners who have expressed concerns about ads that run alongside or promote inaccurate claims about climate change," Google wrote in a statement. "Advertisers simply don't want their ads to appear next to this content. And publishers and creators don't want ads promoting these claims to appear on their pages or videos."

Comment: Can't have anything that questions the official line out there. Next step will be for them to simply ban the content like they did with anything coronavirus.
