CDC Study: 74% of Infected and 80% of Hospitalized in Massachusetts Outbreak Were Fully Vaccinated

About three-fourths of people infected in a Massachusetts Covid-19 outbreak were fully vaccinated against the coronavirus with four of them ending up in the hospital, according to new data published Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new data, published in the U.S. agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, also found that fully vaccinated people who get infected carry as much of the virus in their nose as unvaccinated people, and could spread it to other individuals.

Biden’s Enemies List Grows As Does His Authoritarianism

If our authoritarian, unhinged, woke communist President has his way, America would become a wasteland of ruin under the jackboot of private monopoly corporations inspired by their own totalitarian ambitions. Cancel culture authoritarianism and centralized control of sociocultural and socioeconomic life by those corrupt woke corporate monopolies is the true vision of Biden and his morally backwards Party.

Despite the fact we don’t assess that this rather fantastical vision emanating from the minds of men like Biden and the platform owners has any chance of success, it remains worth reporting on their designs and opposing those designs in principle.

While they scare you with “variants,” Congress wants to make dietary supplements prescription only – TAKE ACTION NOW

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is once again attempting to eliminate your freedom to access dietary supplements, this time by slipping his own hidden bill into the upcoming appropriations bill, which is expected to be voted on at some point next week.

In an emergency announcement, Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show warned his listeners that the Codex Alimentarius scheme – it never went away, by the way – is being quietly slipped in while the government and mainstream media try to scare Americans about the latest Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “variants.”

“Durbin wants to take away your right” to purchase dietary supplements, Hodges warns.

“Durbin’s bill that will be hidden within another bill, which should be totally illegal, is going to take supplements and not keep you from getting them,” but require that you get them through a doctor with a prescription, which will make them cost at least five times more – and the profits go to Big Pharma.

Australian War Crimes Syndicate To Police The Streets Of Sydney

So there are going to be soldiers policing Australia’s streets.

In what was already being called the harshest pandemic restrictions in Australia, New South Wales police have requested 300 Australian Defense Force troops to help enforce lockdown rules in eight local government areas in the suburbs of Western Sydney.

“The personnel will deploy on Friday, Defence Minister Peter Dutton said, and will begin assisting police with ensuring compliance with restrictions next week,” Reuters reports.

“Army troops will door-knock homes of people who have tested positive to COVID-19 and those deemed to be close contacts to ensure they are isolating in a crackdown on Sydney hotspots after NSW reached a record number of new infections,” the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Another Contested State Steps Up & Decides To Audit Their Votes

A "special counsel" has been selected for the authority to expand a GOP-supported probe into the 2020 election in Wisconsin.

That's the name Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos returned to former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, who was given the power to choose full-time investigators for a "top-to-bottom investigation."

About two months ago, Vos selected retired police officers for the task, along with Gableman, to supervise the effort at a tab of $11,000 in taxpayer money each month, but the speaker told the Associated Press on Friday the ex-law enforcement officials resigned earlier this month.

Mask-free Sweden nears zero daily Covid deaths as chief epidemiologist warns against ‘far-reaching conclusions’ about Delta strain

As the CDC urges Americans to mask up against the Delta variant, Sweden’s chief epidemiologist has argued that more data is needed about the strain’s infectiousness. His mask-free nation is hovering at zero Covid deaths per day.

Anders Tegnell said on Friday that there was “a lot we do not know” about Delta and cautioned against drawing “far-reaching conclusions” about the coronavirus strain. He noted that the variant had been circulating in Sweden “for quite some time” with little effect, particularly in high-risk settings such as nursing homes.

His comments were made in response to newly released data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggesting the Delta strain is more transmissible and could potentially cause more severe illness. The New York Times and other media outlets ran stories reporting that the CDC now believes the Delta variant is as contagious as chickenpox – but this comparison didn’t seem to impress Tegnell.

Rail link to be created between Iran, China through Afghanistan

Following the inauguration of Khaf-Herat Railway Project and announcement of Iran’s readiness to invest $2.2 billion in Afghanistan to complete the final phase of this railway and to connect it to Mazar-e-Sharif, Iran’s railway route will eventually reach China.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani officially inaugurated the strategic Khaf-Herat railway project on December 10, 2020 through a video conference. The 225-kilometers-long Khaf-Herat railway is part of the Iran-Afghanistan rail corridor. The project started in the fiscal year of 2007-2008, connects Iran’s eastern city of Khaf to Afghanistan’s western city of Ghoryan. The project was implemented in four parts, Iran was in charge of completing three of the mentioned four parts, two of which are in the Iranian territory and the other two are on the Afghan side.

Taliban vows to guarantee safety of trans-Afghanistan gas pipeline

A Taliban delegation has paid a surprise visit to Turkmenistan to pledge support for a planned natural gas pipeline across Afghanistan, providing welcome reassurance for a project whose viability has long been rendered doubtful by security concerns.

Signs point to the trip having been brokered by the U.S. government, which has long championed what is known as TAPI, named after the four countries the pipeline would cross: Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

Suhail Shaheen, a member of the Taliban’s Qatar-based negotiation team, told reporters in Ashgabat on February 6 that his movement was offering “full support for the implementation and security of TAPI and other developmental projects in our country.”

Taliban attacked UN office in Herat

Taliban militants again attacked the office of the UN mission in Afghan Herat, Afghan Defense Ministry spokes-man Fawad Aman said.

“The Taliban terrorist g-roup has again attacked the UN office in the Guzar district of Herat province. The Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) are fighting and repelling the terrorists,” Aman wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense reported that the Afghan military recaptured the Guzar region in Herat province from the Taliban.

On Friday, the website of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) reported an attack on a major UN infrastructure in Herat in the northwest of the country, killing one policeman. UN staff were not injured.

Navy decommissions littoral combat ship Independence

The Independence, which was commissioned in 2010, was one of the test and training vessels for the littoral combat ship program, along with the Freedom, Fort Worth and Coronado.

But then-Rear Adm. Randy Crites, the deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for budget at the time, said in February 2020 that the early versions of the littoral combat ship needed major, expensive upgrades, and it was better for them to be mothballed.

As such, the Navy said in a news release that decommissioning the Independence “supports department-wide business process reform initiatives to free up time, resources, and manpower in support of increased lethality.”

Penn State Professor Argues White People Breathing Is a Form of Oppression Toward Non-Whites

Pennsylvania State University is defending a professor who pulled a white student in front of his class and told him that he’s breathing, so he may have oppressed someone today.
Professor Sam Richards, who teaches the 700-student “SOC119: Race and Ethnic Relations” course, pulled students up before the class on June 30 to discuss white privilege.

“I just take the average white guy in class, whoever it is, it doesn’t really matter,” Richards said. “Dude, this guy here. Stand up, bro. What’s your name, bro?”

The student, Russell, stood up to face the class.

“Look at Russell, right here, it doesn’t matter what he does,” the professor continued, according to a report from Campus Reform. “If I match him up with a black guy in class, or a brown guy… who’s just like him, has the same GPA, looks like him, walks like him, talks like him, acts in a similar way…and we send them into the same jobs…Russell has a benefit of having white skin.”

How Many Californians Are About to Take the Red Pill?

While I have always stressed that the chance that the recall of California Gov. Gavin Newsom was much higher than the elite media suppose, I may have missed the mark.

It may be much worse than I had even considered.

One of the clues that the situation may be dire is that Newsom is now trying to attract the attention of the national party, saying his election may be a mid-term bellwether.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom asserted on Thursday that his fellow Democrats underestimate the importance of what his recall election means for them.

Newsom said his fate and his party’s are one, offering a warning about the consequences Democrats could face for “many, many years” at the hands of Republicans in the event that he loses in September.

WTF? CNN just declared that unvaccinated people should be starved to death

To make such a claim shows how pitifully foolish and unprofessional Lemon is, which definitely shows that he belongs at CNN. Where Lemon does not belong, however, is in any authoritative position where he might try to medically rape others against their will by penetrating them with needles. -- Neither he nor any other mainstream media hack has any right to violate other people’s bodies upon the threat of removing their access to food and employment. To even suggest that the government possesses this right makes Lemon a fascist, a domestic enemy, and someone who is a very real threat to our constitutional rights as American citizens.

The Anti-Science, Woke American Medical Association In Lobbying To Have Sex Removed From ALL BIRTH CERTIFICATES

In a June Board of Trustee report, the American Medical Association resolved to lobby the U.S. government to remove the sex of a child from their birth certificate.

The sex of a child at birth is determined by genetic make-up, and those genes are expressed in a variety of ways both immediately and over the course of a person’s life, obviously. Genitalia, hormones, bone structure, muscle density, average height and weight, amount of body hair, reproduction, and many many other facets of human biology, brain chemistry, and lifetime are determined or affected by one’s gender. This both medical and scientific fact.

Ammunition shelves bare as gun sales continue to soar…

The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with record sales of firearms, has fueled a shortage of ammunition in the United States that’s impacting law enforcement agencies, people seeking personal protection, recreational shooters and hunters — and could deny new gun owners the practice they need to handle their weapons safely. -- Manufacturers say they’re producing as much ammunition as they can, but many gun store shelves are empty and prices keep rising. Ammunition imports are way up, but at least one U.S. manufacturer is exporting ammo. All while the pandemic, social unrest and a rise in violent crime have prompted millions to buy guns for protection or to take up shooting for sport.

Evictions loom after Biden and Congress fail to extend ban

A nationwide eviction moratorium is set to expire Saturday night after President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress worked furiously but ultimately failed to align on a long-shot strategy to prevent millions of Americans from being forced from their homes during a COVID-19 surge.

More than 3.6 million Americans are at risk of eviction, some in a matter of days, as nearly $47 billion in federal housing aid to the states during the pandemic has been slow to make it into the hands of renters and landlords owed payments. The moratorium expires at midnight.

Tensions mounted late Friday as it became clear there was no resolution in sight. Hours before the ban was set to expire, Biden called on local governments to “take all possible steps” to immediately disburse the funds. Evictions could begin as soon as Monday.

“There can be no excuse for any state or locality not accelerating funds to landlords and tenants that have been hurt during this pandemic,” Biden said in a statement.
