Red mercury

Red mercury is purportedly a substance of uncertain composition used in the creation of nuclear weapons, as well as a variety of unrelated weapons systems. Because of the great secrecy surrounding the development and manufacture of nuclear weapons, there is no proof that red mercury exists. However, all samples of alleged "red mercury" analyzed in the public literature have proven to be well-known, common red substances of no interest to weapons makers.[1]

Red mercury is therefore considered a hoax, perpetrated by con artists who sought to take advantage of gullible buyers on the black market for arms. There have been reports of "red mercury" on the international black markets since 1979, but the hoax seems to have been most common in the early 1990s, with asking prices as high as $1,800,000 per kilogram.[2]

The Real Kamala Harris

As bad as Hillary Clinton was, she never proposed using an executive order to institute a nationwide gun grab. -- If Harris really does become president, I anticipate that there will actually be discussion in some red states about the possibility of declaring independence from the federal government. -- Yes, I do think that things could really get that bad.

US Postal Service Violated Hatch Act Helping Hillary Campaign

An extensive investigation operating quietly outside the limelight of round-the-clock news coverage on Capitol Hill has conclusively vindicated the Opposition Media. There was official government interference in the 2016 presidential contest that elected Donald Trump.

It’s a story that has everything: Secret coordination, baggy uniforms with funny hats, lists of hand-picked operatives embedded in the campaign and nationwide scope. Even worse, these blatantly illegal activities involved official collusion at the highest level of government.

Only it wasn’t the Russian government interfering in the democratic process. It was Democrats in the Obama government!

In a story that must have caused much anguish at The Washington Post, we discover "the US Postal Service engaged in widespread violations of federal law by pressuring managers to approve letter carriers’ taking time off last fall to campaign for Hillary Clinton and other union-backed Democrats."

Neighbor reportedly rushes 5-year-old boy playing outside, puts a gun to his head, and executes him [UPDATED]

She couldn't believe her eyes.

"My first reaction was he's playing with the kids," she recalled. "For a second I thought, 'That couldn't happen.' People don't run across the street and kill kids."

Labrant said the situation became all too real when she saw the child's father react to the horrific scene.

Authorities took Sessoms into custody on Monday night and charged him with first-degree murder. He is being held in the Wilson County Jail without bond.

Authorities have not yet determined a motive in the shooting, but insisted that the killing wasn't random, as Sessoms was reportedly friendly with Cannon's father.

Gun control losing support as Americans fear a future without properly funded police

It won’t be surprising to see these numbers continue to rise as cities across the nation actually move forward with their poorly conceived plans to defund their police departments while left-wing mobs continue to terrorize communities. People are starting to realize that if they cannot rely on the police to protect them, they will have to take matters into their own hands if they wish to keep their family safe.

In the recent weeks the US-led coalition in Iraq experienced a turn for the worse.

On the evening of August 10th, a military convoy carrying equipment for US forces near the Iraq-Kuwait border was reportedly targeted by an explosion. The Iraqi Shiite armed group, Ashab al-Kahf, issued a statement claiming that its forces had destroyed “equipment and vehicles belonging to the American enemy” in a bombing, targeting a border crossing south of the Iraqi city of Basra. The group also released a video purposely showing the attack.

Kamala Harris Proposes Executive Orders on Gun Control

Senator Kamala Harris of California, the former prosecutor who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, on Monday committed to a host of executive actions to implement gun control measures that have long failed to pass in Congress.

At a town hall hosted by CNN, Ms. Harris said that, if elected, she would sign an executive order mandating background checks for customers of any firearms dealer who sells more than five guns a year. The executive actions would also include more stringent regulation of gun manufacturers that could result in revoked licenses or prosecution, as well as an attempt to close the loophole that allows some domestic abusers to purchase guns if their victim is an unwedded partner…

Biden Naming Harris as VP Pick Poses Special Threat for Gun Owners

As usual, “gun owner” Harris is not “anti-gun,” as long as she and her allies control them. Showing the obligatory elitist hypocrisy gun-grabbing politicos reserve for themselves, she has made full use of taxpayer-funded armed police protection, even in situations where the deployment of municipal resources for state officials has been deemed “unprecedented.” Now that she’s on Biden’s ticket, the Secret Service will be keeping her protected while she works to undermine the ability of all Americans to protect themselves.

Nancy Pelosi bashes Trump for signing payroll tax cut. But she loved it when Obama was president.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi harshly condemned President Donald Trump for taking executive action on Saturday in response to Congress's failure to pass a second coronavirus relief package.

In a joint statement with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Pelosi claimed the president's action "endanger[s] seniors' Social Security and Medicare." That's because, in an effort to help Americans financially, Trump signed an executive order deferring payroll taxes — known as the "FICA" tax, which funds Social Security and Medicare — through the end of the year.

5 New CBD Studies In 2020 Reveal Why So Many Are Choosing It Over Big Pharma Drugs

By Steven Maxwell

The free market has spoken. Americans prefer cannabis-related products to Big Pharma drugs for a host of ailments. They’re choosing cannabis because it works for them and now science is beginning to back them up.

The cannabis plant is proving to be very beneficial to human health despite the federal government’s continued prohibition as a Schedule 1 controlled substance. Schedule 1 classification substances have “no currently accepted medical use” and a “high potential for abuse.” Yet governments can no longer deny the evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment for many things without harmful side effects...

Rishi Sunak warns of looming jobs catastrophe as UK economy OFFICIALLY goes into recession after plunging a shocking 20.4% at height of coronavirus outbreak - wiping out 17 YEARS of GDP growth

The news means the country is officially in recession - defined as two consecutive negative quarters - for the first time since the credit crunch. The economy dipped 2.2 per cent in the first three months of the year, and is now smaller than it has been since 2003.

The hit - thought to be the worst recession in 100 years - is harder than in every other major economy except Spain. And it emerged today that the Chancellor is considering delaying his crucial Autumn Budget if fears over a second wave of the deadly disease materialise.

'Looting is reparations': BLM protesters gather outside Chicago PD in support of looters who ransacked city Sunday night, as organizer claims 'anything they wanted to take, they can take because these businesses have insurance'

Black Lives Matter Chicago said early Monday's looting of stores was a form of 'reparations' as the group held a protest Monday night in support of the more than 100 people arrested after an evening of violence.

Downtown Chicago was otherwise quiet after authorities cut off access, with drawbridges leading into the city pulled up and freeway exits blocked after riots sparked by a false rumor of a child shot by police.

At least 13 police officers were injured as the violence claimed an estimated $65 million in property damage.

The flaws, collectively called 'Achilles,' lets cybercriminals access photos, videos, location data and other sensitive details on the handset.

First uncovered by the firm Check Point, experts say users only need to install what seems like a benign app, but is actual riddled with malware that lets hackers launch their attack.

Kamala Harris isn’t the first Black woman to run for VP. Meet Charlotta Bass.

Indeed, while Harris will indeed be the first Black woman and the first Asian American to appear on a major-party ticket, she is not the first Black woman to run for vice president.

Before Kamala Harris became Biden’s running mate, Shirley Chisholm and other Black women aimed for the White House

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, the American daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, is Joe Biden’s choice for vice president. If Biden wins in November, Harris would break three centuries-old barriers to become the nation’s first female vice president, first Black vice president and first Black female vice president.

Geraldine Ferraro was the first female vice-presidential candidate on a major party ticket, in 1984. In 2008, Alaska’s then-governor Sarah Palin was Republican John McCain’s running mate.

Before Harris was picked as Biden’s running mate, she was his competitor for the Democratic presidential nomination. She is one of many Black American women who have aimed for the highest office in the land despite great odds.

Gov. Cuomo rejects calls for investigation into New York nursing home deaths that he helped instigate

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is rejecting calls for an independent probe to be carried out into deaths of coronavirus patients in nursing homes across the state. He said that he believes the demands for the investigation are politically motivated.

The New York Department of Health reports that nearly 6,600 residents have died in the state’s nursing homes and adult facilities, although an analysis by the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity believes the actual death toll could be 25 percent greater than the official tally.

At the heart of the controversy is an executive order signed by Cuomo on March 25 that essentially forced nursing homes to re-admit recovering coronavirus patients who were discharged from hospitals without testing them to make sure they were free of the virus.

Similar mandates were put in place in New Jersey, California and Massachusetts.

Photos, videos appear to capture FBI agents playing roles of armed rioters

We already know the FBI, under James Comey, was a treasonous, criminal enterprise engaged in masterminding more terror plots across America than any other group, including radical Islamic terrorists.

Under Comey, the FBI engaged in a treasonous coup attempt against President Trump. FBI officials altered 302 interview records, lied to the FISA court and later lied to the United States Senate under sworn testimony. For at least eight years under Obama — and probably much longer — the FBI was acting like a lawless criminal cartel, terrorizing America for political gain. And even under current Director Wray, the FBI continues to stonewall investigations into the deep state in a criminal conspiracy in order to cover up the crimes of the FBI under Obama and Comey.

Russia's coronavirus 'vaccine' announced by Vladimir Putin is shrouded in secrecy - but don't dismiss it just yet, writes BEN SPENCER

Russia's claims to have created the world’s first coronavirus vaccine should not be dismissed out of hand.

The country has a proud history of scientific achievements – it sent the first human into space and for decades led the world in the fields of engineering, mathematics and physics.

It also has a strong track record in producing reliable vaccines – notably for Ebola and yellow fever – and the Moscow institution behind the new jab, the Gamaleya Research Institute, is a long-established and well known research centre.

But it is hard to judge the safety and efficacy of the vaccine because very little information has been made available.

The teams behind experimental Covid vaccines in Oxford, the United States and China have all published detailed results of their trials at every stage.

But he also revealed that Harris would have been his 'number one pick', if he were to be given a choice over who he and Vice President Pence would most like to face off against this coming November.

Biden named Harris as his running mate on Tuesday afternoon, making history by selecting the first black woman to compete on a major party's presidential ticket and acknowledging the vital role black voters will play in his bid to defeat President Donald Trump.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden named his former rival for the nomination to the number two spot on Tuesday, giving her a place by his side as he works to defeat President Donald Trump this November.

Harris, 55, made a name for herself in San Francisco both in her work as a prosecutor and in the society pages for her friendships with the city's elite and her relationship with former mayor Willie Brown.

Putin says Russia’s Health Ministry has approved world’s FIRST Covid-19 vaccine, his own daughter has been vaccinated

Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday morning that Russia has registered the world's first vaccine against coronavirus. He says the dose is effective in forming immunity against the deadly pathogen which has spread globally.

“As far as I know, a vaccine against the coronavirus infection has been registered this morning (in Russia) for the first time in the world,” the President told members of the government. “I thank everyone who worked on the vaccine – it’s a very important moment for the whole world.

Putin insisted that vaccination in Russia should only be carried out on a voluntary basis, with nobody forced to accept immunization. He also revealed that one of his daughters has already been vaccinated.

"I know that it works rather effectively, forms a stable immunity, and, I repeat, it passed all the necessary inspections," the president added.

Scientists Put Masks to the Test—With an iPhone and a Laser

Thanks to the reliable laws of physics that describe the relationship between the size of a particle and the amount of light it gives off when it gets scattered by a laser beam into the lens of a camera, Fischer was able to back-calculate the size of the smallest particle they could detect: half a micron. Knowing that, he was able to quickly write a bit of computer code that opened the video footage, tracked individuals particles from frame to frame, and quantified the number of detectable particles emitted. In the end, this produced a picture of how many particles built up in the box during about 35 seconds of talking. That was the control.

Sweden's Success is Kryptonite for Lockdown and Mask Advocates

In August, Sweden has registered just one death (!) with/from the coronavirus. Yes, you read that correctly. One death so far.

For the month of July, Sweden reported 226 deaths. They’ve accounted for 805 June deaths, 1646 in May, and 2572 in April. The deaths attributed to COVID-19 went from about a 50% reduction to falling off of a cliff.

The story is the same in the hospitals. COVID-19 is hardly registering as a blip on the radar. Sweden has reported just 4 new COVID-19 patients in their ICUs in August. The month of July saw only 52 COVID-19 patients in ICUs.

It doesn’t take a math whiz to come to the conclusion that the epidemic appears to have been wrapped up in Sweden for months.

Sky-high care home death toll in New York has actually been UNDERCOUNTED, new data reveals

New York nursing home deaths at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic may have been undercounted by as much as two-thirds, according to new federal data. Already the highest in the US, the tally likely omits thousands.

The state’s official count of care home pandemic deaths – 6,600 – may be vastly undercounted, according to data from federal regulators revealed in a report from news agency AP on Tuesday that suggests the state deliberately omitted from its totals nursing home residents who died in hospital.

When regulators began requiring homes to include residents who died in a hospital in their casualty counts in May, the numbers soared to 65 percent more deaths than the official state count. Extrapolating even half of that discrepancy back to the start of the pandemic would mean thousands more died than were officially counted.

Germany warns US against imposing sanctions on Nord Stream 2, says no country has right to ‘dictate’ its energy policy

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has warned the United States not to interfere with the completion of the Russian-led Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, stressing that Europe has the right to choose its own energy sources.

“Sanctions between partners are definitely the wrong way to go,” Maas said during a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, adding that any attempt to prevent the pipeline from completion would be a violation of his country’s sovereignty.

Ultimately, it remains our sovereign decision where we get our energy from. No country has the right to dictate Europe's energy policy with threats. That won't be successful.
