'The US government is censoring private conversations,' says the 'conversion therapist' fighting a legal battle not to be silenced

Brian Tingley is taking on the state of Washington for the right to continue counselling young people concerned about their sexuality. He believes the attempt to stop his work violates his right to freedom of speech.

Should private discussions between a counsellor and minors worried about their sexuality be allowed? Therapist Brian Tingley believes they should, and has taken to the courts to fight his case. Brian and his team are keen to overturn a district court decision in the state of Washington to reject his challenge to a law that prohibits 'sexual orientation change therapy' for young people.

Tingley has been widely depicted as practising conversion therapy, a charge he refutes. In his opinion, the crux of the matter comes down to whether the government should determine what happens during therapy sessions. Speaking to RT, he said,
"I've been a counsellor for over 20 years and until recently the government never told me what I could say and not say in my sessions. This law violates freedom of speech in a very private setting, a counselling office."


Drone pilot and whistleblower to RT: Going from 'video game sniper' to remote killer withers away who you are

Targeted killings by US drones are notoriously prone to claiming civilian lives. It takes a toll on drone pilots too, as the job slowly eats away their souls, an ex-operator told RT in an interview for the Unheard Voices project.

Brandon Bryant served in the US military between 2006 and 2011, targeting drone strikes from the Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico. His job was to point a laser at where a Hellfire missile fired by a coworker from a Predator drone should hit. He estimates that he personally contributed to the deaths of 13 people.

After the first time he helped kill three people that he believed were innocent, he called his mother, crying. "She told me it was good that I felt bad about it, because if I felt good about it I would just be another psychopath," he recalled.



UK dumps 800,000 AstraZeneca doses as vaccine uptake falls

The AstraZeneca vaccine has a six-month shelf-life in the fridge
Up to 800,000 doses of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine are likely to have expired across the UK at the end of August, analysis suggests, and could now be thrown away.

The doses were destined for use in the UK rollout, but after the Government recommended in May that younger people should get an alternative jab because of the blood clot risk linked to the AstraZeneca jab, take-up dramatically slowed.

Comment: This is sinister misdirection, because, Israel, that was proclaimed to be a 'laboratory' for its exclusive use of Pfizer's mRNA injection, has seen equal if not worse suffering by young people from serious side effects: Pfizer vaccine in Israel: Mortality rate 'hundreds of times greater in vaccinated young people'

GPs told The Telegraph they had been raising concerns over leftover doses for some time, including one who wrote to his MP in a bid to re-purpose the jabs after exhausting other options.

Comment: The story is much the same across the planet, those that were caught up in the manufactured hysteria got their experimental injection as soon as they were able; the next percentage did so slowly and reluctantly, primarily due to the increasingly coercive tactics of their government, like rolling lockdowns and the threat of vaccine passports; and, now, those that remain continue to decline the offer to suffer an injection that has been dogged by scandal and that they know they do not need.

It's likely that, as reports of severe side effects continue to increase, even more injections will go to waste as increasing numbers of people realise the risks the injections pose is much higher than that of the relatively harmless coronavirus: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Pandemic is Over!

Joe Biden's mandatory vaccine order may lead America straight to another Civil War

In a massive overreach of government power, Joe Biden said federal and private employers must require their workforce to get vaccinated - or else. This move from the Democrat who once preached 'unity' could lead to national ruin.

Despite pledging in the past that he would never force Americans to roll up their sleeves for a mandatory vaccine, that is exactly what President Joe Biden announced this week to a nation already sick and tired of masks, lockdowns and political infighting. Worse, the US leader stoked divisions inside of the country, where many fear the rise of a medical-style apartheid, by singling out the unvaccinated for blame.

"We've been patient," the 78-year-old Democrat lectured, carefully reciting his tele-prompted words. "But our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us." The unvaccinated among us "can cause a lot of damage, and they are."

Snakes in Suits

Department of Education opens civil rights investigation into Florida ban on mask mandates

ron desantis
New CDC figures appear to bolster Gov. DeSantis argument for parental choice over mask mandates.

The Biden administration's Department of Education (DOE) has opened a civil rights investigation into Florida Governor Ron DeSantis's executive order banning mask mandates in schools on the same day that the First District Court of Appeals reinstated the ban after it had been blocked by a Leon County, Florida circuit judge.

The DOE's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) said in a Friday letter addressed to Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran that it was "opening a directed investigation" into whether the governor's statewide ban "may be preventing school districts in the state from considering or meeting the needs of students with disabilities," according to The Hill.

Comment: If the parents weren't so indoctrinated by fear spread by the media about a not-particularly-dangerous virus, this concern simply wouldn't exist. Not to mention the idea that society should have to change its behavior, and indeed put themselves at risk, because your child has a disability is completely anti-American.

Actress and activist Rose McGowan has accused California Governor Gavin Newsom's wife of trying to convince her not to go public with the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse story. She will detail the allegations on Sunday.

Newsom's chief rival, Republican Party candidate Larry Elder, said he and McGowan will hold a press conference on Sunday afternoon. "Gavin Newsom's wife, Jennifer, attempted to bribe and silence her from speaking out about Harvey Weinstein's sexual abuses."

"The time for radical change is now," the actress wrote on Twitter after the announcement.


Rutgers bars unvaccinated student from attending VIRTUAL classes

Logan Hollar has applied to be exempted from Rutgers’ vaccine mandate because he is studying from home.
A New Jersey student has said he is barred from taking classes at Rutgers University because he has not been vaccinated — even though he is only studying virtually from home.

Logan Hollar, 22, told NJ.com that he largely ignored the school's COVID mandate "because all my classes were remote" from his Sandyston home, some 70 miles from Rutgers' campus in New Brunswick.

But he was locked out of his Rutgers email and related accounts when he went to pay his tuition at the end of last month — and was told that he needed to be vaccinated even though he has no plans to attend in person.

Comment: Welcome to the apartheid state. It doesn't matter whether the activity you're trying to engage in could not possibly expose anyone to Covid, if you're not vaccinated, you're not participating.


'This is fiction': Confused Stephen King makes claim about '1,200 dead' of Covid in Florida in ONE day, others eat up and spread

Stephen King holds up a pink Amazon Kindle 2 electronic reader at a news conference in New York where the device was introduced.
Horror novelist Stephen King may pay his bills by inventing stories, but he was accused of taking creative license with health data, saying 1,200 Floridians died of Covid in one day - a claim that remains up despite being untrue.

"1200 dead of COVID yesterday in Florida," King, who lives in both Florida and Maine, tweeted on Friday. "Not the total for a week or a month, but ONE SINGLE DAY."

Comment: Anyone who takes anything Biden does as a sign of an "intelligent mind" is clearly delusional. It would be wise to not take anything they say on any topic seriously. Of course, the highly partisan King has a history of tweeting rather moronic statements.

NY hospital to pause baby deliveries after staffers quit over vaccine mandate

An upstate New York hospital said it will pause the delivery of babies in two weeks because of a spate of resignations by maternity unit workers who are objecting to COVID-19 vaccination mandates.

Lewis County General Hospital, in Lowville, will temporarily stop delivering babies after Sept. 24, WWNY reported. During a news conference Friday afternoon, Lewis County Health System CEO Gerald Cayer said seven of the 30 hospital workers who resigned were from the hospital's maternity ward. He added that another seven maternity unit staffers were undecided about getting the vaccine, the television station reported.

The workers were objecting to a Sept. 27 deadline to receive a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the Watertown Daily Times reported. Then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued the state mandate on Aug. 23.


Minnesota nursing home teenage aides caught having fun while STRIPPING & TWERKING in front of resident with dementia - media

Police and health authorities in Minnesota, US are investigating a case of "emotional abuse" at a local nursing home. Teen girls who worked at the facility had been found apparently tormenting a resident with dementia.

Two aides at the Johnson Memorial Hospital and Home in the small town of Dawson, who are said to be around 17 years old, allegedly abused one of the female residents, the local Fox channel reported on Saturday.

One evening back in May, the girls danced in "a sexually provocative manner" in front of the elderly woman with dementia, who sat on a couch in a lounge, according to the now-revealed report from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

Comment: The lack of empathy in younger generations is striking in its prevalence. Whether its due to social media, a retarded education system, poor diet or a failure on the part of the parents (or a good old-fashioned character disturbance) can be speculated over, but its increasing pervasiveness seems undeniable.
