With Low Vaccination Rates, Africa's COVID Deaths Remain Far Below Europe & US

Since the very beginning of the covid panic, the narrative has been this: implement severe lockdowns or your population will experience a bloodbath.

Morgues will be overwhelmed, the death total toll will be astounding. On the other hand, we were assured those jurisdictions that do lock down would see only a fraction of the death toll.

Then, once vaccines became available, the narrative was modified to:

"Get shots in arms and then covid will stop spreading. Those countries without vaccines, on the other hand, will continue to face mass casualties."

The lockdown narrative, of course, has already been thoroughly overturned.

Jurisdictions that did not lock down or adopted only weak and short lockdowns ended up with covid death tolls that were either similar to—or even better than—death tolls in countries that adopted draconian lockdowns. Lockdown advocates said locked-down countries would be overwhelmingly better off. These people were clearly wrong.

JK Rowling Casts Anti-Doxxing Spell Against Trans Activists In Furious Twitter Thread

Billionaire author JK Rowling has slammed transgender activists after a comedian, an actor, and a drag queen doxxed her home in Edinburgh, Scotland on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Rowling has come under fire for her mainstream views on transgenderism, including a June 2020 joke that "‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?"

We Don't Get A Vote On The Woke Revolution

You don’t get to vote on the revolution. That’s kind of the point. From the happy example of Colonial America to the terrors that mutilated and murdered innocents in France, Russia, and China, revolutionaries work outside the established system to impose a new order.

So it is with today’s woke revolution. The potent cultural forces that have mainstreamed radical concepts such as “white privilege,” “microaggressions,” and “gender fluidity” are beyond the reach of American democracy.

No one voted for any of it; it cannot be stopped at the ballot box. Electing anti-woke politicians in 2022 and 2024 will not turn the tide.

COVID-19 Made Democracies More Authoritarian And Authoritarian Regimes Even Worse

The COVID-19 pandemic is contributing to a significant decline in democratic values across the globe as many countries have taken aggressive and authoritarian steps to attempt to curb the virus.

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past two years, that's probably not much of a surprise. Still, a new report from the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, a global nonprofit based in Sweden, offers a comprehensive look at the worrying trend of democratic erosion—a trend that has been helped along by the pandemic even though its roots go deeper.

China Says US "Playing With Fire" After Warship Conducts 11th Taiwan Strait Transit This Year 

China has blasted the latest US warship sail-through of the contested Taiwan Strait, which happened Tuesday, calling it an intentional "provocation" after a US Navy statement asserted "The United States military flies, sails, and operates anywhere international law allows."

The Navy's Seventh Fleet had identified that the guided-missile destroyer USS Milius conducted the "routine" transit as part of the US "commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific". This year the White House appears to have ordered such pass throughs of the strait on a monthly basis, given Tuesday's event marked the 11th US warship transit of the Taiwan Strait this year, which is just under the record - in 2020 there were a total of 13.

Five Trump-Russia 'Collusion' Corrections We Need From The Media Now

Five years after the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded collection of Trump-Russia conspiracy theories known as the Steele dossier was published by BuzzFeed, news outlets that amplified its false allegations have suffered major losses of credibility.

The recent indictment of the dossier's main source, Igor Danchenko, for allegedly lying to the FBI, has catalyzed a new reckoning.

In response to what the news site Axios has called "one of the most egregious journalistic errors in modern history," the Washington Post has re-edited at least a dozen stories related to Steele. For two of those, the Post removed entire sections, changed headlines, and added lengthy editor's notes.

When Sultan Abdulmejid I of the Ottoman Empire declared war on Russia in the summer of 1854, he assumed it would be an easy victory that would restore his crumbling empire back to its former glory.

But Abdulmejid’s dream never came true.

The Ottoman Empire was already in dire economic condition by the mid-1800s; Abdulmejid’s predecessor (and father) Mahmud II had presided over a major budget deficit, plus a devastating loss of territory. The Empire was shrinking and growing weaker.

So when Russia tried to capitalize on this weakness by invading Ottoman territory in 1853, Abdulmejid refused to back down. He allied himself with Britain and France, both of whom wanted to check Russian power, and they all went to war.

This became known as the Crimean War. And it was exceptionally costly, both in blood and treasure.

Abdulmejid was out of funds within a year. And in August of 1855, he turned to London bankers for a loan.

A Missouri judge on Tuesday ruled that local COVID-19 orders violated the Missouri Constitution, ordering local health officials to rescind them.

Judge Daniel Green of Cole County wrote that the Department of Health and Senior Services unconstitutionally gave too much power to individual local health officials and directors. As a result, he ruled, those orders must be lifted, meaning that local health orders must be rescinded.

“This case is about whether Missouri’s Department of Health and Senior Services regulations can abolish representative government in the creation of public health laws, and whether it can authorize closure of a school or assembly based on the unfettered opinion of an unelected official. This court finds it cannot,” the judge wrote in his order.

CENTCOM Says Military ‘Prepared’ If Iran Nuclear Deal Talks Fail

Gen. Frank McKenzie, the head of US Central Command (CENTCOM), told Time Magazine on Wednesday that his forces are prepared for a potential military option against Iran should talks to revive the nuclear deal fail.

“The diplomats are in the lead on this, but Central Command always has a variety of plans that we could execute, if directed,” McKenzie said.

US officials often speak of the potential for failure in negotiations with Iran and like to portray Tehran as the difficult party. But it was the US that withdrew from the JCPOA in the first place, and President Biden’s hardline stance is to blame for why earlier talks failed.

Robert Malley, Biden’s special envoy for Iran, also delivered a threat on Wednesday. He said if the talks dragged out, the US would not “sit idly” while Iran’s nuclear program grew. “If they start getting too close, too close for comfort, then of course we will not be prepared to sit idly,” Malley told NPR.

David says the plot goes all the way back to 1984, when Anthony Fauci took over at NIAID, “And two years later, railroaded the first step in a global conspiracy to actually create a human dependency on vaccines.

Disturbing Details Emerge from Inside Australian Quarantine Camps

Details about life inside the Australian quarantine camps are beginning to leak out through the internet. Although the information cannot be directly verified, due to the importance of this issue, TheCOVIDWorld has decided to report on this story since it’s unlikely the Australian government is going to release such information themselves.

An anonymous poster has detailed their experiences in an Australian quarantine camp. The poster claims he was confined after flying into Australia from Singapore.

Despite being vaccinated and having taken 3 tests on his trip, which were all negative, he was forced to attend the camp.

In the post, the writer says that he was forced onto a bus with blacked-out windows by armed guards for a two-hour ride to the quarantine camp. Inmates are allegedly forced to take the vaccine, but also tested regularly and watched by cameras and armed guards. Detainees are charged $2,500 for their two-week involuntary stay.

Whistleblower Nurse Says Politicians Receive Saline Instead of mRNA Jab. Crisis in Slovenia

A crisis has hit the eastern European country of Slovenia, with a whistleblower nurse telling the public that politicians and other high ranking citizens receive saline instead of the mRNA experimental medication.

In a video on Facebook, which has been deleted by YouTube, the woman claiming to be the head nurse of the University Medical Center in Ljubljana, which takes care of receiving and managing the jab bottles for politicians, resigned and gave a press conference on the scandal.

During the conference she showed codes on the bottles where each contains 1, 2 or 3 digits, and then explained the meaning of those numbers.

Note: Daily Telegraph understands from our sources in Slovenia the original video has now been removed from Facebook.

Nearly 3/4 of the World’s Dictators Receive US Weapons and Military Assistance

The US supports nearly 75% of the world’s dictators, autocracies, monarchies, military regimes, etc., with weapons, military training and money. Please remember this the next time someone tells you the US should do X or Y because such and such a nation is bad…

Comparing Freedom House’s list of Not Free nations* to FY 2020 US overseas weapons sales, military training and financial assistance**, we find that of the 57 nations considered undemocratic, 42 receive weapons, training and/or money for their military and security services. This means 74% of the non-democratic nations of the world are supported militarily by the US. Interestingly, the remaining 15 nations are nearly all sanctioned. The world’s countries can be divided into two parts: those who buy/receive weapons from the US and those sanctioned. It seems like it’s a pretty simple arrangement.

Biden Is Wrong. There Is No Such Thing As “Defensive” Saudi Weapons in the War on Yemen.

At a 2019 Democratic primary debate, candidate Joe Biden pledged to stop U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Once in the White House, in February 2021, President Joe Biden claimed he would end all U.S. support for ?“offensive operations” in Yemen. And yet, Biden is now backing a proposed $650 million sale of air-to-air missiles and launchers to Saudi Arabia, an apparent betrayal of his campaign-trail promise.

The deal is setting up a fight in the Senate, where Sen. Rand Paul (R?Ky.) is planning to force a vote on a joint resolution to block the weapons transfer, along with Sens. Bernie Sanders (I?Vt.) and Mike Lee (R?Utah). This would be the first Senate vote on the Yemen war during the Biden administration, and would force Democrats?—?who opposed the war under former President Donald Trump but have been less legislatively aggressive under the Biden administration?—?to publicly state their positions.

Germany’s Incoming Government Agrees to Keep Hosting US Nukes

Germany’s incoming government said in a coalition deal that it will continue hosting US nuclear weapons.

The announcement comes after some speculation that the new government might be opposed to the presence of nuclear weapons based on earlier comments by members of the political parties forming the coalition. The government is being formed by the Social Democratic Party(SDP), the Green Party, and the Free Democrats.

Germany has no nuclear weapons of its own but has between 15 and 20 US B-61 nuclear gravity bombs at the Büchel Airbase and a fleet of Tornado fighter bombers to deliver them as part of a NATO agreement.

Members of the Greens and the SDP have previously voiced opposition to the arrangement, causing NATO to press the country to continue hosting the nukes. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said if Germany stopped hosting the nukes, the alliance would move them further east, closer to Russia.

Jewish Settlers Open Fire on Palestinian Homes, Attack Cars near Nablus (VIDEO)

Jewish settlers on Tuesday attacked with live fire and stones Palestinian residents and their homes, near the entrance to the village of Burqa, northwest of Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that dozens of settlers sneaked their way into the village of Burqa, and opened fire on Palestinian homes.

Settlers reportedly opened fire at residents’ homes, spurring clashes with Palestinians attempting to defend their neighborhood.

Jewish settlers further attacked Palestinian vehicles driving on Nablus-Jenin with stones, causing damages to several cars.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

Netanyahu told to return $900,000 in gifted legal funds from US billionaires

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit said Wednesday that former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu should return a total of $900,000 to two US businessmen who gave him the money while he was serving as premier.

According to Mandelblit, Netanyahu should give back $300,000 to the estate of his late cousin and benefactor, businessman Nathan Milikowsky, and $600,000 to real-estate mogul Spencer Partrich.

His legal opinion was submitted to the High Court of Justice as part of a petition on the issue filed by good governance groups.

NATO summit to discuss how to deter Russia, says Lithuanian foreign minister

Lithuania is very worried about a Russian troop build up on Ukraine's eastern border and a NATO summit next week will try to find ways on how to deter Russia and reinforce the alliance's borders, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said on Wednesday.

Landsbergis also told Reuters in an interview after meeting U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman in Washington that Russian President Vladimir Putin might be using the Belarus border crisis as a tactical distraction to stir up wider instability in the region.

"Creating all those tactical instabilities on the border, having us all paying 100 percent attention to these issues, Putin might be ready to make a strategic move," Landsbergis said.

He added that he was not sure about the scale of Moscow's next step "if there would be a military action against Ukraine ... because in 2014 the scale was limited."

In 2014, Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, one more time. When the US-backed coup replaced the government of Ukraine, Crimea held a referendum to secede from Ukraine and a government not of their choosing. The referendum passed overwhelmingly! Then Crimea held another referendum about joining with the Russian Republics, which also passed overwhelmingly. Crimea then asked Russia to join and Russia said "yes." Got it now?

Hundreds of Marines are moving into a moldy barracks in North Carolina that has gone further downhill since being tepidly rated “degraded but adequate” during a building inspection in 2019.

According to one Marine who provided photo and video evidence, HP 225, the new home for a company of Marines assigned to 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment at Camp Lejeune has signs of poor maintenance, including cockroaches, rampant mold, and missing beds and furniture.

US-NATO Drums of War: From ‘Saddam’s WMDs’ to ‘Russia Is Preparing to Invade Ukraine’. Familiar “Regime Change” Propaganda Now Targets Moscow

Following Saturday’s news report by corporate-owned US media outlet CBS, which outlined alleged plans by Russia to invade Ukraine in the coming weeks as the Winter sets in, based on unverified information given to the media network by unnamed US Intelligence officials, anti-Russian hysteria in the Western mainstream media has again stepped up a notch – with Moscow already being accused of playing a key role in the ongoing migrant crisis at the Belarus-Poland border, where thousands of immigrants, many of whom are fleeing the wars and colour revolutions imposed on their countries by the US-NATO hegemony, are attempting to enter the European Union.

Newsom Takes No Responsibility For Rising Crime

"I'm not the mayor of California, but I was a mayor, and I know when things like this happen, mayors have to step up," Newsom said Monday at a vaccine clinic in the Mission District of San Francisco. "That's not an indictment. That's not a cheap shot."

Must See: Biden Ignores Reporters Begging Him For Answers

President Joe Biden wanted to soothe Americans regarding the increasing gas prices, supply chain crises, and the availability of holiday presents – but didn't take any questions from White House reporters as he ventured to leave Washington for Thanksgiving Tuesday.

Biden once again attempted to console Americans who are focused on inflation or concerned about the state of the economy – citing mothers and fathers who are asking "will there be enough food we can afford to buy for the holidays. Will we be able to get Christmas presents to the kids on time and if so, will they cost me an arm and a leg?"

The Department's Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has proposed new rules to "retire" data sets, and the program is now up for 60 days of public comment.

To "reduce the reporting burden," the OCR suggested dropping accusations of rape or sexual assault last week. The OCR will still solicit schools to present data on the number of documented rape or sexual assault incidents within their school system.

COVID Vaccines Are a War on Children

The first battles in the Covid War on Children began with the lockdown, forcing kids into isolation, depriving them of education, smothering them with masks, strangling their innate joy and playfulness, and denying them contact with God-given images of human faces.

The tyrants won those first battles, vanquishing our kids. Children are committing suicides in numbers never before seen; their health has plummeted with terrifying rates of obesity and diabetes, their intellectual and social development is languishing, and they are suffering intensely.

Now with children sicker and weaker than ever before, and with parents desperate for a return to “normal,” the tyrants are moving in for the kill with vaccines. The Pop Culture Brigade unleashed Big Bird to tweet about the joys of the jab, promised kids super powers from the vaccines in a grotesque Pfizer ad, and invited a pop star to the White House to push “Let’s end this pandemic together” to kids.

Civil Disobedience: As Long As I Breathe, I Hope

Recently, free media have been reporting more and more exemplary activities of civil disobedience. “Civil disobedience” is “non-violent self-defence” and a form of political struggle in the sense of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King.

It gives rise to hope among citizens to survive the worst crisis in modern history. With his motto “Dum spiro spero”, Cicero (106 to 43 BCE) expresses this hope and the anxious question of many citizens about “To Be or Not to Be” succinctly and prosaically.

The daily horror reports about state terror measures and the path already taken towards a new fascism leave deep traces of despair and hopelessness in young and old. Who still believes in protecting the health of the population?

Holcomb to extend Indiana’s health emergency; lawmakers cancel plans to reconvene Monday

The public health emergency will be extended for another 30 days.

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced the move, the 21st extension, on Wednesday in a statement, saying:

Last week I made clear what would be necessary to responsibly allow the state public health emergency to expire. However, following the announcement that the General Assembly will not return on Monday, Nov. 29, I plan to extend the state public health emergency and the executive order next week for another 30 days to preserve the necessary provisions. I will continue to work closely with Speaker Huston and Senator Bray as we move into next legislative session.

This comes after Holcomb held back support from a Republican proposal that would force businesses to grant COVID-19 vaccination requirement exemptions without questions.

GoFundMe pulls $5M bail fundraiser for Waukesha SUV 'killer' Darrell Brooks and says it will BAN all future attempts to raise money after judge was blasted for setting bond

GoFundMe has removed a crowdfunding effort aimed at raising $5million toward bail for Darrell Brooks, the Waukesha, Wisconsin 'killer' who allegedly plowed his red SUV into scores of people during a holiday parade on Sunday, killing six and injured dozens more.

Brooks, who was charged with five counts of homicide, was arraigned in court on Tuesday.

Waukesha Court Commissioner Kevin M. Costello set bail at $5million - a move that sparked anger considering Brooks’ violent past that includes convictions for felonies.

New York judge extends ban on keeping New York Times from publishing material about Project Veritas after conservative group accused feds of 'leaking' secret communications

A New York trial judge on Tuesday extended a ban keeping The New York Times from publishing or seeking certain materials concerning the conservative activist group Project Veritas.

Justice Charles Wood of the Westchester County Supreme Court said his temporary ban imposed on November 18 will now run until at least December 1, a deadline for Project Veritas to respond in writing to The New York Times' bid to end it.

The judge granted the extension at a nearly two-hour hearing in White Plains, which was part of a defamation lawsuit that Project Veritas filed against The New York Times last year.

More BOOGA BOOGA - Southern Africa-Linked COVID-19 Variant With ‘Horrific’ Number of Spike Mutations Triggers Concerns

According to the World Health Organisation, all viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, that causes COVID-19, change, but only some deviations affect their properties, such as the speed with which it spreads, the associated severity of disease, and the effectiveness of vaccines. The Delta variant, detected a year ago, is now dominant across the globe.

A new COVID-19 variant with an “extremely high” number of mutations in the spike protein has alarmed scientists due to its potential to dodge antibodies that can fight the virus.
The B.1.1.529 strain is described as an offshoot of an earlier variant called B.1.1 and has 32 spike mutations. In comparison, the Delta variant that is currently dominant across the world has 16. The spike protein is the part of the virus that most existing coronavirus vaccines use to enable the immune system to fight the infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

An Attack on Whites in Waukesha

A black suspect drove through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, killing at least five people and injuring dozens more. Among the injured were at least 18 children, 10 of whom are in intensive care.

It didn’t make the New York Times until page A22.

Suspect Darrell Brooks was reportedly the driver. Police arrested him without injuring him. Police charged him with five counts of intentional homicide. In its report, the Times said the act “sent a shock wave through a state already unsettled by the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse in nearby Kenosha two days earlier.”

UK to Have New Elite Ranger Regiment For 'High Threat' Missions as Part of ‘Radical’ Army Overhaul

The UK Defence Secretary had confirmed in March this year that the size of the army would be reduced to 72,500 by 2025, telling Parliament that its increased deployability and technological advantages would mean that greater effect can be delivered by fewer people with increased funding to “modernise the forces for threats of the 2020s and beyond.”

The British Defence Secretary has announced the formation of a new elite Ranger regiment as part of the army’s most “radical” overhaul in over 20 years, reports Sky News.

Ben Wallace has also saved 500 troops from a planned cut in army numbers announced earlier in March. The UK force will still be culled by 9,000 posts to 73,000, with an emphasis on capability rather than mass. The UK military forces will now be relying more on robots and computers and data, with servicemen and women expected to hone specialist skills.

Migrants at Belarus-Poland Border Protest, Demand EU to Make Decision

Migrants at the Belarusian-Polish border are holding a protest on Thursday and demanding from the EU to make a decision on their status, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

Migrants say that they want to live in a peaceful and stable country and say they came to Europe not for economic reasons.

This comes as thousands of migrants from the Middle East, mostly Iraqi Kurds, have been staying on the Belarusian-Polish border for more than two weeks already, unable to enter the EU since Warsaw refuses them entry. When some of the migrants attempted to storm the Polish border, they were pushed back by Polish forces, who used water cannons and tear gas.

Ukraine on its knees in front of Russia – ex PM

Kiev is on unsteady footing amid an increasingly tense standoff with Russia due to its dependence on gas and energy imports, Ukraine’s former prime minister has warned as the country seeks to secure more supplies from Moscow.

Speaking in an interview with Nash TV Channel, Yulia Timoshenko, who now sits as an opposition MP, claimed that Ukraine has neither extracted its own gas nor planned to use its own coal supplies.

“All of the essentials needed for the heating period have not been provided, which means that we have been practically brought to our knees,” the ex-prime minister claimed, remarking that Kiev is fully dependent on Moscow and Minsk.

“The whole government should count on prayers that Ukraine won’t be plunged into -10 degrees or lower this winter,” Timoshenko went on. “The second thing that they hope for is that they will import electricity from Russia and Belarus. And they already do,” she said.

WATCH: Police put down mass protests sparked by plummeting currency

Scenes of police in full riot gear attempting to suppress protests have been coming in from Istanbul, as more people have taken to the streets across Turkey, upset over the record fall of the lira.

Officers wearing helmets and carrying shields are seen cordoning off streets in Istanbul, while police in lighter gear infiltrated the crowds and forcefully dragged away some protesters, in footage from RT’s Ruptly video agency.

There was a massive police presence as people flooded the streets of the Turkish city on Wednesday, decrying the government’s handling of the financial crisis. While many took part in the protests, thousands of others lined up at gas stations due to the rapidly rising fuel prices. Many more bought US dollars in panic. Others invested money in electronic products, while some companies halted sales in the country amid skyrocketing inflation.

Ukraine boasts of blocking Nord Stream 2 pipeline

The new delay in approving the Russian-backed Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany is down to Kiev’s lobbying efforts, Ukraine’s foreign minister has claimed after Berlin’s regulator suspended the certification process.
Speaking to the news channel Ukraine 24 on Monday, Dmitry Kuleba praised Ukraine’s attempts to delay the project’s approval. “Nord Stream 2 should have been operating and earning money a long time ago, but the fact that it still does not work and we are fighting against it is the result of our common endeavors,” he said.

“Together with our partners, we have significantly slowed down the implementation of this project.”
