Coldplay, Billie Eilish and Jennifer Lopez are among the performers scheduled to take the stage beginning at 4 p.m. on Central Park's Great Lawn in New York City.
"Get up, stand up" - for each other and for global vaccine equity.

That was the message delivered Saturday by celebrities, political leaders and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during Global Citizen Live festivities on the Great Lawn on Central Park.

The event was the Big Apple's contribution to the international music festival to raise awareness for humanitarian causes, including the effort to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to poverty-stricken nations around the world.

Comment: Oh the inanity! The only thing missing from this woke celebrity cringe-fest is some vegan virtue signalling! Greta must have been busy.

'Living in a parallel universe': Australian PM boasts of Aussies' love of freedom to UN as police crackdown continues at home

A viral video has contrasted Prime Minister Scott Morrison telling the UN General Assembly that Australia believes in "freedom" and the "dignity of all people" with Australian cops beating citizens for not wearing masks.

In a virtual address to the UN General Assembly on Friday, Morrison talked up Australia's belief in "a world order that favors freedom," in "respecting the rights and freedoms of the individual" and "in the inherent dignity of all people... no matter the circumstances."

Morrison had barely spoken before Australian libertarian activist Randall Evans put together a video showcasing the Aussie PM's lofty words alongside footage of ordinary Australians being brutalized by police for breaching the country's draconian coronavirus restrictions.

Visuals of a young woman choked out by a police officer for not wearing a face mask, and a couple wrestled to the ground by cops for going unmasked on a beach, didn't seem to align too well with the politician's message to the world.

In this March 2021 photo provided by Pfizer, a technician works on a line for packaging preparation for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at the company's facility in Puurs, Belgium. Billions more in profits are at stake for some vaccine makers as the U.S. moves toward dispensing COVID-19 booster shots to shore up Americans' protection against the virus.
Billions more in profits are at stake for some vaccine makers as the U.S. moves toward dispensing COVID-19 booster shots to shore up Americans' protection against the virus.

How much the manufacturers stand to gain depends on how big the rollout proves to be.

Exactly who should get a booster was a contentious decision as advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spent two days this week poring over the evidence. CDC director Dr. RochelleWalensky endorsed most of their choices: People 65 and older, nursing home residents and those ages 50 to 64 who have chronic health problems such as diabetes should be offered one once they're six months past their last Pfizer dose. Those 18 and older with health problems can decide for themselves if they want a booster.

Still, the crisis is constantly evolving, and some top U.S. health officials expect boosters will be more broadly authorized in the coming weeks or months. And that, plus continued growth in initial vaccinations, could mean a huge gain in sales and profits for Pfizer and Moderna in particular.

"The opportunity quite frankly is reflective of the billions of people around the world who would need a vaccination and a boost," Jefferies analyst Michael Yee said.

China suffering power shortages, limits factories working hours, situation expected to worsen entering winter

Aerial photo taken on April 27, 2021 shows the view of the 500-KV Jinshan electricity substation in southwest China's Chongqing.
Nationwide power curbs, caused by many factors including a steep jump in coal prices and surging demand, have led to side effects at Chinese factories of all kinds, with some cutting output or halting production entirely. Industry insiders predict the situation could worsen as the winter season draws near.

As production halts caused by power curbs challenge factory production, experts believe that Chinese authorities will launch new measures - including a crackdown on high coal prices - to ensure a steady electricity supply.

A textile factory based in East China's Jiangsu Province received a notice from local authorities about power cuts on September 21. It won't have power again until October 7 or even later.

Comment: Lockdowns do indeed seem to be partly to blame, and much of the planet is effected: Shortages of all kinds have been in the news with an increasing frequency recently, for more on just what's really going on, check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Is The Government Hyping Shortages?

Team of top scientists researching Covid origins disbanded amid controversy and conflicts of interest

A task force of senior scientists investigating the origins of Covid-19 has been disbanded, their leader revealed. Its investigation had been plagued from the outset by accusations of corruption and conflict of interest.

Columbia University professor Jeffrey Sachs told the Wall Street Journal on Saturday that, after a year of work, he has disbanded the team, due to its former leader having used US government funds to study coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in China - the facility from which many believe the virus originally leaked.

"I just didn't want a task force that was so clearly involved with one of the main issues of this whole search for the origins, which was EcoHealth Alliance," he said, referring to the private research firm that received $600,000 in grants from the US National Institutes of Health to study bat-borne coronavirus at the lab between 2015 and 2019.

Norway removes lockdown restrictions, "we can now live as normal" declares PM

While restrictions have eased in Norway, the government still expects there to be COVID-19 cases.
Norway has re-opened society, its government says, ending its COVID-19 restrictions that have limited social interaction and hobbled many businesses.

The Nordic nation joins a small but growing number of countries, including Denmark and Britain, which have removed all domestic restrictions that limited the spread of COVID-19.

"It is 561 days since we introduced the toughest measures in Norway in peacetime ... Now the time has come to return to a normal daily life," Prime Minister Erna Solberg told a news conference.

Comment: Restrictions may have temporarily limited the spread of all viruses, but that has actually made the situation many times worse; more so when combined with all the other harmful restrictions and the accumulating harm caused by the experimental injections. Further, whilst dropping the restrictions exposes tyrannical governments elsewhere for what they are, there's nothing to say that they won't invoke these 'emergency' powers again in the near future knowing that they can get away with it. The UK, as just one example, intends to extend these powers in to next year.

Black Lives Matter leader: Vaccine mandates are 'racist,' vows 'uprising'

A Black Lives Matter leader is threatening an "uprising" over mandatory vaccinations and vaccine passports in New York.

New York City's vaccine mandate began on Sept. 13. It requires proof of vaccination entry to certain public spaces, including gyms, restaurants, and bars, unless a person has an approved medical exemption.

New York officials call the program the "Key to NYC Pass."

Hawk Newsome, the co-founder and chairman of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York (BLMGNY), argues the mandates are fundamentally racist, given the low rate of vaccination in the black community.

'Oh, F*** Them': Tucker Carlson reacts to ADL calls to fire him

Tucker Carlson
Tucker Carlson blasted the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) during an interview published Friday over the partisan organization's calls for Fox News to fire the host.

"Oh, f*** them," Carlson bluntly told host Megan Kelly.
"The ADL was such a noble organization that had a very specific goal, which was to fight anti-Semitism. That's a virtuous goal. I think they were pretty successful over the years. Now it's operated by a guy who's ... just an apparatchik of the Democratic Party."
The ADL has called for Carlson's firing over his comments about "great replacement" theory. The Fox host knocked the organization for weighing in on his comments at all, contending that "great replacement" is not a theory but mere language of the Democrat Party.

Relative comments around the 17-minute mark:

Comment: The video begins with Tucker's early professional life including failure, reckoning and redemption, that shaped his choices and career. His take on life, and how he lives it, is refreshing and unexpected. Recommend first 48 minutes, skip a bit to finish.
