"It is the beans, and not the counting of the beans, that prospers a nation." -- Michael Rivero
On Monday, First Liberty Institute and law firm Clement & Murphy filed a lawsuit with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on behalf of His Tabernacle Family Church, a nondenominational New York church, challenging an allegedly unconstitutional ban on firearms in houses of worship.
The suit alleges that the law discriminates against religious establishments, makes them vulnerable to outside violence, and violates two Supreme Court rulings.
The 2022 absence rate “makes absolutely no sense,” exclaimed former Blackrock portfolio manager Edward Dowd. “Something’s going on with our workforce that we’ve never seen before. And it’s gone so far above trend — it’s a health concern.”
“Absences are defined as instances when persons who usually work 35 or more hours a week worked less than 35 hours during the reference week for one of the following reasons: Own illness, injury, or medical problems; child-care problems; other family or personal obligations; civic or military duty; and maternity or paternity leave. Excluded are situations in which work was missed due to vacation or personal days, holiday, labor disputes, and other reasons. For multiple jobholders, absence data refer only to work missed at their main jobs. The absence rate is the ratio of workers with absences to total full-time wage and salary employment,” explained Mr. Dowd on his website.
He noted, “In relative terms, the deviation from trend in 2022, for the total (men+women) full-time workers was about 70%.”
Last week, a Texas pol, Ben Barnes, confessed that he was personally involved—and therefore an eyewitness to–high treason: The Ronald Reagan campaign’s successful secret deal with the Iranian government to hold 52 Americans hostages so that Reagan could defeat Jimmy Carter.
Reagan’s skanky deal worked. In 1980, Carter’s failure to bring home the hostages destroyed his chance of reelection. Reagan ultimately would repay the favor from Iran’s murder-crats with weapons and even, for the Ayatollah Khomeini, a birthday cake from Reagan advisor Oliver North.
The question is, why now? Why did Barnes suddenly blow the whistle on this crime—and a crime it is—four decades late? His cute excuse, reported without question by the New York Times, is that, “History needs to know that this happened.”
Wrong. “History” doesn’t need to know—American voters needed to know about Reagan’s treason before the 1980 election.
Injected COVID-19 vaccines are so old hat — especially since Bill Gates sold all his stock in them. Nowadays nasal vaccines are all the rage — and Gates happens to be deeply invested in them too! Most recently an Indian pharmaceuticals company that boasts Gates as an early investor announced that it will soon be releasing inexpensive nasal vaccines. And for all his charitable work Gates will no doubt make lots more money. What a humanitarian!
WARNING: Graphic content—Fox News host Tucker Carlson reacts to the Nashville school shooting on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'
An activist group is due to hold a 'Trans Day of Vengeance' demonstration outside the Supreme Court on Saturday, warning against 'astronomical amounts of hate from the world' and following the horrifying Nashville shooting which left seven dead on Monday.
The Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) will host the event in Washington D.C. from 31 March until 2 April, starting Friday and marching on the Supreme Court at 11am on Saturday. On their website they cite Gender Affirming care ban bills and the political climate as motives for the demonstration.
But commentators are up in arms over the decision to go ahead with the protest as police say they are investigating the role of Nashville shooter Audrey Hale's gender identity and a sense of 'resentment' that may have inspired the attack on the shooter's Christian former school.
Republican firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene yesterday demanded her Twitter account be restored after features were limited for violating rules.
She said: 'My Congressional account was suspended for 7 days for exposing Antifa, who are organizing a call for violence called "Trans Day of Vengeance."
Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, the largest teacher union in the country, recently called for a ban on so-called ‘assault weapons’ like the bans in other countries such as Scotland and New Zealand.
One of the six victims killed by Nashville shooter Audrey Hale was the daughter of a pastor who was “providing counseling for her,” according to a recent report.
“Something didn’t sit right with her,” Jim Bachmann — the former pastor at The Covenant School which Hale stormed on Monday, killing six — told Inside Edition.
Bachmann described how Covenant Pastor Chad Scruggs, whose 9-year-old daughter, Hallie, was among those killed had been Hale’s private counsellor.
Transgender Hale arrived at The Covenant School around 9:54 a.m., blasted her way in through locked glass doors and carried out a 14-minute killing spree that left three school children and three school staffers dead, before she was shot by police.
Bachmann told Inside Edition Hale appeared to be searching for Scruggs in surveillance footage police have since released.
A Unitarian Universalist church distanced itself from a controversial "sexual fantasy" school assignment that is part of a curriculum that they helped to develop.
Earlier in March, a health teacher at the Churchill High School of Eugene, Oregon was placed on leave after parents raised concerns about a sexual fantasy assignment.
The assignment prompted students to write a story about their sexual fantasies without including any form of penetration, oral sex, or intercourse that could result in a sexually transmitted disease. It also asked students to pick a classmate they would like to have sexual relations with. After parents raised concerns about the assignment, the Eugene 4J School District reportedly launched a 3rd party investigation, reviewing the curriculum called "Our Whole Lives" [OWL].
When the some 4,000 soldiers of the brigade leave for Europe later this year, they will do so as the Army’s “most modern brigade” – the service’s first brigade to complete the Army’s push to modernize heavy formations. At the training center, the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team brought its arsenal of 87 new M1A2 SEPv3 Abrams tanks, 125 M2A4 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, 13 M7A4 Bradley Fire Support Team Vehicles and 18 M109A7 Paladin self-propelled howitzers – the Army’s newest and most deadly versions of the weapons that anchor a heavy brigade.
The National Training Center provided the brigade its first opportunity to simultaneously use all the new weapons, which cannot all operate in the field together on the smaller training grounds at Fort Stewart….
The King got a two-minute standing ovation after becoming the first British monarch to address the German Parliament today with a witty speech celebrating our ability to laugh with and at each other. He cited the two nations’ mutual move of everything from Monty Python to The Beatles, the electronic Krautrock band Kraftwerk and in a solemn moment he even mentioned the war but he got away with it.
US handlers are sending the Ukrainian army to the slaughter, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"We are talking about the annihilation, with the means of the West and the hands of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky, of the Ukrainian people. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on March 28 that calls for a ceasefire could be a cynical trap. But the supplies of weapons and the allocation of billions of dollars for military operations - is that not a cynical trap? That, apparently, is simply an effective trap from his perspective," the diplomat said at a news conference. "The Ukrainian army is essentially being sent to the slaughter by their handlers from Washington."
The deployment of new NATO forces near Belarus' borders is the real threat to European security, not Belarus keeping Russia’s nuclear weapons on its territory, the country’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
"Deployment of fresh NATO’s troops near the Belarus’ border and further Alliance’s enlargement in Northern Europe are an irresponsible escalation and key factors threatening European security," reads the statement posted on the ministry’s Twitter page.
Thus, the Belarusian Foreign Ministry commented on the statement of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, who asserted that the stationing of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus is an "irresponsible escalation and threat to European security." Borrell urged Minsk to reverse this decision, saying that otherwise the EU was ready to respond with new sanctions.
A petition proposing to deploy US nuclear weapons in Ukraine appeared on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s website Thursday.
"Deploy US nuclear weapons on Ukrainian territory or turn Ukraine into a state with its own nuclear weapons," the initiative’s author proposes.
So far, the initiative has been supported by about 100 people; in order to oblige Zelensky to review the petition and provide an official response, a total of 25,000 people must sign it within 90 days.
Petitions proposing to arm Ukraine with nuclear weapons have repeatedly appeared on the Ukrainian President’s website since 2015. None gained enough votes for a presidential review.
Dr. Angus Dalgleish, a renowned oncologist practising in the UK, recently wrote an open letter to the editor-in-chief of the medical journal The BMJ, urging the journal that harmful effects of Covid injections be “aired and debated immediately” because cancers and other diseases are rapidly progressing among “boosted” people.
Dr. Dalgleish is a Professor of Oncology at St George’s, University of London. His letter to Dr. Kamran Abbasi, the Editor in Chief of the BMJ, was written in support of a colleague’s plea to Dr. Abbasi that the BMJ make valid informed consent for Covid vaccination a priority topic.
Outbreaks of vaccine-derived poliovirus in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Burundi have been linked to vaccines supplied to both nations by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Health officials from both nations detected the cases and immediately informed the World Health Organization and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. (Related: 7 Kids in Africa left PARALYZED by vaccine-derived polio bankrolled by Gates Foundation.)
The WHO said the Burundian government declared the detection of the virus in children a national health emergency. The cases occurred in Burundi’s western district of Isale, near the major urban center Bujumbura and only around a dozen miles from the border with the DRC. Samples from environmental surveillance of wastewater confirmed the presence of poliovirus type 2.
In the DRC, at least six children in the eastern provinces of Tanganyika and South Kivu were confirmed to have vaccine-derived type 2 poliovirus.
The White House today publicly told Americans residing in, or traveling in Russia, to "Leave Russia Immediately."
Here's the White House Statement:
The ASEAN countries - the Association of Southeast Asian Nations - will discuss moving away from major currencies such as the dollar and the euro and moving to local currency settlements. This issue will be on the agenda of the meeting of finance ministers and central bankers of the countries, which will be held in Indonesia. The publication clarifies that we are talking about a digital system, thanks to which residents of one country of the association will be able to pay for goods and services of another country in their own currency. Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and Thailand have already signed a cooperation agreement on this project. It is worth recalling that in mid-March, Indonesian President Joko Widodo called on regional authorities to abandon Mastercard and Visa. He suggested using credit cards issued by local banks to protect money transactions from "possible geopolitical consequences."
It is happening right now, right here. Two major geopolitical factors are at play here:
1. Sanctions on Russia and stealing Russia's assets;
2. The way Russia successfully stands alone (initially) against combined West and grinds its combined forces into dust.
Now, with Saudi Arabia moving closer to becoming a full fledged member of Shanghai Cooperation Organization, one can only imagine what resources the BRICS will command, since Saudi Arabia is very keen on joining BRICS too.
The US should bluntly tell Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that Kiev will eventually have to accept territorial concessions, former CIA Counterterrorism Center chief Robert Grenier said. This comes as Zelensky admitted that his people are becoming weary of conflict.
“The time is fast approaching when a senior representative of the Biden administration will need to begin a similarly tough, realistic — and empathetic — dialogue with Zelensky,” he wrote in The Hill, adding that although the US president is “a great friend” of Kiev, “his ability to deliver on his implicit and explicit promises of support for Ukraine ‘for as long as it takes’ is likely to be curtailed in the near future.”
“Zelensky must be pushed in the direction of a negotiated solution, likely to include territorial concessions on Crimea and the Donbass,” the former CIA official said.
The ARRW effort, led by Lockheed Martin, the bigwig of the massive US MIC (Military Industrial Complex), was an (over)ambitious plan to push the belligerent thalassocracy ahead of near-peer rivals such as Russia and China. Firstly, it’s important to understand that HGVs cannot be strictly defined as missiles, since they are unpowered and require a launch vehicle, an actual missile that propels them to hypersonic speeds. The AGM-183A ARRW went through a rather rocky R&D process, being unable to go past the Mach 5 mark, which is the bare minimum required for a weapon to be considered hypersonic (Mach 5+, five or more times faster than the speed of sound). The projected maximum speed for the weapon was changed several times, ranging from Mach 5 to Mach 20, but at the time of Trump’s speech it was reported to be Mach 17.
However, the definition “17 times faster than the speed of sound” probably didn’t mean much to Trump, so he just simplified it and told the press that it was “17 times faster than any other missile existing at the moment”. Lockheed Martin projected that the weapon would be capable of speeds in excess of Mach 20, but its R&D teams encountered serious issues in achieving this goal. The problem mainly involved the ARRW’s (in)ability to endure extreme heat generated during hypersonic flight, resulting in the destruction of its highly sensitive microelectronics. After over half a decade of testing, AGM-183A was barely able to achieve Mach 5 before being incinerated by the extreme heat. After at least half a dozen (publicly admitted) consecutive failures in testing, the US Congress threatened to cut further funding for the project.
A senior bishop in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) has issued a strongly-worded rebuke to President Vladimir Zelensky over his role in a crackdown that is gripping the country’s largest religious denomination.
“I am telling you, Mr President, and your entire pack, that our tears will not fall to the ground, but on your head,” Metropolitan Pavel said in a video address on Wednesday.
“You think today that after taking power on our backs, [based] on our wishes, you can treat us like that. Our Lord will not forgive this action, neither to you nor to your family,” the bishop warned.
At a United Nations meeting that addressed a Syria cover-up scandal at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Aaron Maté of The Grayzone responds to a challenge from British diplomat Thomas Phipps.
NATO’s campaign against Tchaikovsky and, by extension, against all Russian and global culture may best be viewed as a chess game where NATO are the white hats and civilisation must play black. NATO’s aim in this sick game is to uncouple Tchaikovsky from the rest of his team, to control the cultural centre of the board and, by removing him from their cultural chess board, to pulverise Russian culture, to demote the Russian language to a patois of little, if any, significance and to say that Russian culture is as nothing to the riches Zelensky and his cross-dressing friends bring to our culturally diverse world.
Though it is a solid, if somewhat demonic plan, Tchaikovsky’s CV makes it fatally flawed. It cannot and must not succeed.
Tchaikovsky, recall, is best known for his ballet scores and his 1812 overture, which maps his fellow Russians’ demolition of Napoleon’s Grande Armée. Though ballet, Le Grande Armée and being a long dead Russian make strange bedfellows, taken together, they show why NATO is on a fool’s errand with this cultural terrorism.
