Radical Democrats are turning Minneapolis into a violent wasteland

Minneapolis, Minnesota abandoned and neglected
If you want to know what the real-time self-destruction of a city looks like under Democrats' dangerous ideology, Minneapolis offers the perfect model.

The world witnessed in the streets of Minneapolis this spring and summer the feature presentation after many increasingly violent coming attractions, created, produced, and distributed by a one-party, radical left government.

If you want to know what the real-time self-destruction of a city looks like, Minneapolis offers the perfect model. This is no Detroit-esque collapse prompted by the degeneration of an industry-dependent metropolis. This is the willful push down the path of ruin of a city burgeoning with opportunity and rife with promises of the American Dream. It is suicide.

Georgia election steal: Sen. Perdue balks at Sec. Raffensperger's demand for apology, doubles down on calls for resignation for not investigating irregularities

GOP senator insists Republican secretary of state displayed 'total incompetence' in handling of November election

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., fired back at Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday after he was accused of provoking "death threats" against Raffensperger's family by calling for the election official's resignation.

"It's outrageous that anybody made a death threat, but that had nothing to do with my call for his resignation," Perdue told "Special Report" host Bret Baier. "That had to do with total incompetence around what happened in November."

Earlier Monday, Raffensperger told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that "Perdue still owes my wifean apology for all the death threats she's got after he asked for my resignation," and added that he has "not heard one peep from that man since."

Rafessnperger invited Perdue to call him and settle their disagreements "face to face, man-to-man."

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's update to Georgia's voting machine software right before the 2020 election was unlawful and violates any certification of state results

Georgia's corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is in criminal trouble now after leaking a phone call with the President of the United States. Raffensperger is also responsible for approving an update to the voting machines in the state days before the 2020 election which was illegal and should invalidate the results of the election in the state.

Comment: Donald Trump and his legal team have done a great job exposing publicly the rigged and corrupted voting system in the USA. Whether he, as a legal winner of these elections, becomes the new US president for one more mandate depends on him, his legal team and the juridical institutions in the USA.

Only one thing is clear. The "biggest democracy" in the world was not so big after all. They were just selling to us that story for many years, but now nobody believes in it anymore.

DC Mayor calls out national guard for pro-Trump stop the steal rallies; urges people to stay away from city

Screen Shot
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has called out the National Guard for the pro-Trump Stop the Steal rallies scheduled to take place in the nation's capital Tuesday and Wednesday. D.C.'s acting Chief of Police Robert J. Contee III warned protesters that the city's strict gun laws will be enforced as it is against the law in D.C. to exercise one's Second Amendment rights while exercising one's First Amendment rights. Contee ordered posters put up in the protest areas reminding visitors of the city's carry prohibitions.

Comment: Trump supporters never initiated violence in their rallies, despite their vast number. BLM and Antifa were the ones who were ruthlessly destroying, looting, burning, and attacking Trump supporters all over the US, and now they are accusing peaceful people of something that they are doing.

It is a classic psychopathic trait to accuse the victim of the same things that the abuser has done to the victim.


British ex-soldier stands trial over botched 'revenge' kidnapping of Riviera hotel heiress

13 people went on trial on Monday in Nice for the botched kidnapping of hotel heiress Jacqueline Veyrac
It is a case that reads like a botched revenge plot from an airport thriller.

A British ex-soldier, a paparazzo-turned private detective nicknamed Tintin and the ex-manager of a Michelin-starred Nice restaurant went on trial on Monday accused of kidnapping a millionaire hotel heiress on the French Riviera.

However, the plan by the motley crew of "clueless" characters swiftly went awry, it is alleged, notably after they had to change getaway driver when the initial candidate lost a limb and GPS trackers used to follow the heiress in fact led police to a prime suspect.


YouTube terminates talkRADIO's channel over lockdown criticism

© order-order.com
Google-owned YouTube in the early hours of this morning removed the TalkRADIO channel from its platform. YouTube had been where TalkRADIO streamed its live video content and kept an archive of old shows. The channel had accumulated tens of millions of views and 250,000 subscribers. YouTube has simply said the account was "terminated for violating YouTube's community guidelines."

The fact the termination came shortly after the UK Government announced a third lockdown is raising eyebrows. TalkRADIO has been exceptionally critical of lockdown policy.

YouTube's Covid-19 guidelines instituted in May 2020 states that "YouTube doesn't allow content that spreads medical misinformation that contradicts local health authorities' or the World Health Organization's (WHO) medical information about COVID-19." This includes bans on:

Comment: It's pretty obvious why the establishment want to silence talkRADIO:

England to enter toughest Covid lockdown since March

boris johnson
England will enter its toughest nationwide lockdown since March, with schools closed until mid-February, as Boris Johnson warned that the weeks ahead "will be the hardest yet".

As new figures put the UK on course to exceed 100,000 Covid-related deaths before the end of the month without urgent action, the prime minister said once again that people must stay at home, with exercise limited to once a day. All non-essential shops were told to close from Monday night.

The lockdown will last for at least seven weeks, with measures to be reviewed during half-term week. Any relaxation would not come into effect before 22 February.

Just a day after urging millions of pupils to return to the classroom, Johnson announced all schools would switch to remote learning until the February half-term, and GCSE and A-level exams were unlikely to go ahead as planned.

The prime minister said parents would "reasonably ask why we did not make this decision sooner", adding: "I completely understand the inconvenience and distress this late change will cause millions of parents and pupils up and down the country."

Comment: So the vicious cycle of new variants, inflated cases and rotating lockdowns begins. Coincidentally, they also have another, very scary, "South African" variant. Are they setting the stage for yet another lockdown after this one? From The Telegraph:
The South African variant of coronavirus may be resistant to vaccines and more difficult to pick up through testing, scientists have warned, as they called for the immediate closure of borders.

Health Secretary, Matt Hancock said he was "incredibly worried" about the new mutation saying it was "even more of a problem than the UK variant."


There are also fears that people who have already had the virus may not be protected from the new mutated virus.

Francois Balloux, professor of computational systems biology at University College London (UCL), said: "The E484K mutation has been shown to reduce antibody recognition.

"As such, it helps the virus SARS-CoV-2 to bypass immune protection provided by prior infection or vaccination. It is not anticipated that this mutation is sufficient for the South African variant to bypass the protection provided by current vaccines.


The South African variant is known to spread rapidly and is already dominant in the Eastern and Western Cape provinces and scientists are worried it may be able to evade the immune system far more effectively than the UK variant.

Scientists said that further restrictions must be brought in to prevent the further spread.

Lawrence Young, virologist and professor of molecular oncology, at Warwick Medical School at the University of Warwick, said: "While changes in the UK variant are unlikely to impact the effectiveness of current vaccines, the accumulation of more spike mutations in the South African variant are more of a concern and could lead to some escape from immune protection.

"The move to harsher levels of restriction across the country is inevitable. It is essential that we do everything possible to prevent the South African variant from spreading to the UK population.

"Quarantine measures and restricting travel from and to South Africa are imperative."

France to keep list of people who have Covid vaccination

covid vaccine
France is to compile a list of people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19, to monitor side-effects and keep track of the roll-out - but critics claim this will also identify those who have not had the vaccine.

The list received approval from data freedom agency, la Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés (CNIL), this week on December 29.

Called the "SI Vaccin Covid" or "SI" (for "système d'information"), the list will be managed by health authorities la Direction générale de la santé and the Assurance maladie, and begin from January 4.

It will gather all the surnames, names, and dates of birth of people vaccinated, as well as the date and place of their vaccination, the type of vaccine used, and the name of the person who did the injection.

France's vaccination roll-out began on December 29.

Comment: Although they say that the list won't be used to 'limit freedoms', once the authorities have that information, it most likely will be used in such a scenario in order to 'protect our safety'. See also:

Anti-Muslim Polish duo plotted to 'bomb mosque' and 'poison' people after writing Breivik-like manifesto against Islam

State prosecutors in Poland charged two men with conspiring to attack a mosque with explosives. The suspects are also accused of planning poisonings, while one wrote a manifesto on the need to "exterminate religious groups."

The two men were arrested in November 2019, the day before a large nationalist march in Warsaw. Police seized guns, drugs, explosives and chemicals, and an investigation began. At the time of their arrest, the men were already under investigation for alleged involvement in a 2012 plot by a Polish academic - dubbed "Poland's Breivik" after Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Behring Breivik - to blow up parliament buildings.

State prosecutors charged the men on Monday with preparing explosives that they say "threatened the life and health of many people." A government spokesman told Onet that the men targeted "a specific religious object of the Islamic community," believed to be a mosque.

A 32-year-old Wickenburg mother is accused of assaulting her children and stepchildren for not wearing masks after they tested positive for COVID-19.

Court charging documents obtained Thursday show Sarah Michelle Boone is facing three counts of child abuse, three counts of assault as well as disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Police were called to Boone's home Saturday night. Officers were told that Boone had hit one child in the face, kicked a second one while he was on the floor and picked a third child up by the neck. She allegedly did this in reaction to the children not wearing masks despite having the virus.

Boone left before police came but officers found her walking down the street, according to the documents. Officers say she ignored their command to stop and then fought them when they tried to arrest her. Officers ended up shocking her with a stun gun. She was then handcuffed.

In the documents, authorities said they encountered Boone before on three previous incidents of domestic violence. They also indicated that Boone is an alcoholic and was under the influence when she struck the children.
