Just Chips, No Salsa

By John F. Di Leo{americanthinker.com } ~ The technocrats are talking about giving people a chip – once they’ve been vaccinated for the CCP virus, or otherwise proven their immunity and state of non-contagion… so that anyone with the right scanner can easily see that interacting with them is “safe.” Sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? But think about it. Even if you don’t care about personal freedom, don’t respect concerns for societal liberty. Just think about this a moment. The CCP virus is just the flavor of the month. It’s the terrible risk of 2020, the big thing this year. In past years, we have been scared of H1N1, Ebola, SARS, all of which have killed tens of thousands of people. This is hardly the first such epidemic to hit humanity. The list goes on and on. So… what about next year? There’s a seasonal flu every year, and some years, it’s especially bad sometimes arguably worse than this one… Over a 20 year period, there might be five such really bad flus. Should we agree to a chip for all of them? Or only for certain ones? This year’s virus hits the overweight and the very old worst of all. Maybe the next one will hit the young and the skinny worst. Maybe one will hit the asthmatics worst. There’s ALWAYS someone to protect from these things, and our concern for these innocent victims is laudable. Then people will ask: Should we have a chip every year, and 300 million tests, every year, just to be safe? You know what they say – “if it saves just one life,” right? But we don’t just have to fear seasonal flus. How about all those other contagious illnesses? Tuberculosis, leprosy, plague, smallpox, Ebola… The U.S. hasn’t had to worry about many of these for a long time, but with open borders and unlimited intercontinental travel, the once-eradicated diseases of old are back, sometimes with a vengeance. We could virtually eliminate most such risks by closing the borders to illegal immigrants from the third world, but that’s apparently not acceptable anymore, so we need to spend billions enabling our health care system to handle long-beaten diseases that we now import, wholesale, from the same places we import our macramé bracelets and hand-dyed T-shirts. If we authorize a chip for the illness in today’s news, you can be sure there will be clamoring to add chips for yesterday’s illnesses too, not to mention tomorrow’s illnesses, whenever they arrive on the scene. Is this the new normal? To have shutdowns every single time, until the 300 million tests and chips are distributed?  It will spawn a great boom in the electronics industry, as not just health care workers but everybody else too will want to buy the latest scanners, so they can check their coworkers, their families, their friends, their teammates… their dates… https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/04/just_chips_no_salsa.html 

Japan to extend state of emergency to entire country

By David Aaro{foxnews.com } ~ Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is reportedly planning to extend Japan’s state of emergency to cover the entire country amid the coronavirus outbreak… according to a report Thursday. Japan has seen a notable increase in cases in recent weeks, with at least 327 confirmed nationwide on Wednesday, according to Kyodo newswire. Japan’s capital Tokyo recorded at least one-third of those cases. The country has seen a total of 8,626 COVID-19 cases. Abe previously declared a state of emergency on April 7, for Tokyo, Osaka and five other prefectures which will last until May 6. Those areas account for about 44 percent of the country’s population, according to Reuters. Japan has 47 total prefectures. On Wednesday, Japan urged its citizens to stay home, after reports warned up to 400,000 of them could die of the coronavirus without urgent action, the news organization reported. The reports by Japanese media cited an undisclosed health ministry projection which said deaths could reach the 400,000-mark without increased measures taken. The projection estimated that up to 850,000 people could potentially need ventilators.   https://www.foxnews.com/health/japan-extends-state-of-emergency-to-entire-country  

The scumbag/liar-nObama-Era Official scumbag/commie-John Durham’s Investigation Is Focused On…Intel Chiefs May Already Have Testified!

by patriotsforthefuture.com ~ Sweet, sweet justice may soon, finally, at long last, be on the way. How long have we been waiting for this? This is HUGE!! According to former US Attorney Joe diGenova, current US Attorney John Durham has been bringing in witnesses under oath before a grand jury… He also claims that the key focus of the Durham investigation is scumbag/commie-John Brennan. scumbag/commie-Brennan, of course, was former President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama’s CIA chief and has been pegged as the likely architect of Spygate, the plot from the scumbag/liar-nObama intelligence agencies to launch sham investigations into candidate, and then President Donald Trump. It was a constructed document. It was not in fact an assessment of anything and that is very interesting because they are looking at what scumbag/commie-Brennan did and what he asked other people to do in terms of that and some other things as well. So apparently Mr. Durham has not been deterred by the virus. When Carr reminded the listeners which assessment diGenova was discussing, the former US Attorney dropped this bombshell: After Carr reminded the listeners what assessment diGenova was speaking about, diGenova explained: They Durham and his team are clearly looking at abuse of power. In other words, were the resources of the CIA illegally used to undertake domestic terrorist investigations? Were the resources of the CIA used to illegally create a plot to either falsely lead FBI officials into a scheme or to conspire with FBI officials to deny certain people their civil rights.   https://patriotsforthefuture.com/247-alerts/breaking-the-obama-era-official-john-durhams-investigation-is-focused-on-intel-chiefs-may-already-have-testified/?aff_id=1262&utm_placement=cflg-pftf

liar-Pelosi Congratulates Democrats for Blocking Billions in Small Business Coronavirus Relief Funding

By Jack Hadfield{thepoliticalinsider.com } ~ liar-Nancy Pelosi congratulated Senate Democrats for blocking $250 billion in coronavirus relief funding for small businesses… Speaking on MSNBC, liar-Pelosi congratulated her colleagues in the Senate for blocking an emergency extension to the Paycheck Protection Program, despite millions of small businesses relying on its funding that could run out as early as Friday. The PPP had set out $350 billion in forgiveable loans to help these businesses through the coronavirus pandemic, with 880,000 applications for a total of $217 billion being approved by Monday. “So last week when they came and asked for a quarter of a trillion dollars in 48 hours, I said, ‘well I don’t think, let’s see how we can open this up to many more people,’” liar-Pelosi said. “So Chuck scumbag-Schumer and I, this all happened on the Senate side and I congratulate the Senate Democrats, they went to the floor when Mitch McConnell went in for this $250 billion and they said they objected.” With around 62% of the emergency coronavirus funding for small businesses being already allocated, up from 48% on Friday, and over 200,000 applications for relief still flooding in, it’s astonishing to me that liar-Pelosi can celebrate the rejection of this. Rather than simply passing the bill instead, liar-Pelosi and the Democrats are demanding extra billions to go towards hospitals and healthcare facilities to help fight the coronavirus, which is in fairness, an admirable destination for funding, but also want to guarantee that women and minorities will be the first to receive any of the small business loans! This is completely ridiculous. Once again, the Democrats are playing identity politics during a time of crisis. Firstly, why should anyone receive preferential treatment for anything just for an accident of their birth, and secondly, even if you think they should, why would they add all this bureaucratic red tape to a system that should be designed to simply hand out this funding as fast as they possibly can?! What makes this even more maddening is that liar-Pelosi and the rest of the House are off with full pay! Like always, it’s one rule for the Democrats, and one rule for everyone else.   https://thepoliticalinsider.com/pelosi-congratulates-democrats-for-blocking-billions-in-small-business-coronavirus-relief-funding/?utm_campaign=TPI04162020morning&utm_source=criticalimpact&utm_medium=email&utm_content=4b4ea4948726422aa6473c7b9fa19141&source=TPICI  

13-Yr Old Commands Int’l Neo-Nazi Group

by clarionproject.org ~ The leader of an international neo-Nazi group – a group whose members plotted to attack a synagogue in Las Vegas and car bomb a CNN office… was just 13 years old when he was discovered by police earlier this year, reported the AP. The “Commander,” as he called himself, was one of the leaders of the Feuerkrieg Division, an extremist organization that advocates for the “acceleration” of societal collapse by provoking a violent and massive race war between Far Left and Far Right groups. In January, police intervened and confronted the boy “because of a suspicion of danger.” Since then, the boy’s activities with the Feuerkrieg Division have been suspended. “As the case dealt with a child under the age of 14, this person cannot be prosecuted under the criminal law and instead other legal methods must be used to eliminate the risk. Cooperation between several authorities, and especially parents, is important to steer a child away from violent extremism,” said Harrys Puusepp, a spokesman for the Estonian Internal Security Service. The boy was also identified through the gaming platform Steam, where his account lists his URL as “HeilHitler8814.” He apparently operated from his home computer in Saamemaa, an island of Estonia. It is unclear if other members of the online group knew of the boy’s age. In 2018, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) identified the group as one of the most extreme of the white supremacist organizations. Although their numbers at the time were estimated at about 30, members of the group were investigated by the FBI, who gained access to the group’s encrypted chats on the Wire online platform. “That young kids are getting that sense of belonging from a hate movement is more common than most people realize and very disturbing. But accessing a world of hate online today is as easy as it was tuning into Saturday morning cartoons on television,” said the vice president of ADL’s Center on Extemism Oren Segal. In April, as Clarion reported, one member of the group, Conor Climo, 24, told an FBI source about his plans to firebomb a synagogue, an LGBTQ bar or attack a local ADL office. Climo was subsequently arrested and pleaded guilty to a felony possession of an unregistered firearm…  https://clarionproject.org/13-yr-old-commands-intl-neo-nazi-group/?utm_source=Clarion+Project+Newsletter&utm_campaign=4a859070fc-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_04_16_02_04&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_60abb35148-4a859070fc-6442509&mc_cid=4a859070fc&mc_eid=b83b13a9b5    

liar-Nancy Pelosi brags about stockpile of $12 per pint ice cream in $24,000 fridge as Americans line food banks

by Samantha Chang{bizpacreview.com } ~ Millionaire liar-Nancy Pelosi showed America how tone-deaf and arrogant she is by flaunting her dessert stockpile in her $24,000 refrigerator while millions of unemployed Americans line up at food banks amid the coronavirus shutdowns… The Democrat is sheltering in place at her posh California mansion and gleefully doing interviews with talk show hosts like James Corden while Americans are basically under house arrest. Keep in mind that President Donald Trump urged Congress to return to work instead of taking a taxpayer-funded vacation at home during the coronavirus crisis. “I don’t know what I would’ve done if ice cream were not invented,” liar-Pelosi cooed. The 79-year-old career politician then proudly displayed her collection of fancy ice cream. Amazingly, liar-Pelosi then tweeted about her interview while lamenting: “We all have found our ways to keep our spirits up during these trying times. Mine just happens to fill up my freezer.” Speaker liar-Pelosi was eviscerated on Twitter for her shockingly clueless remarks.  GOP strategist Steve Guest blasted liar-Pelosi on Twitter: “While liar-Nancy Pelosi sits in her ivory tower in San Francisco, eating $13 dollar a pint ice cream out of her $24,000 fridge, she is cheering on Democrats for blocking coronavirus relief aid that has so far been distributed to 1.3 million small businesses that is about to run out.”…  https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/04/16/nancy-pelosi-brags-about-stockpile-of-12-per-pint-ice-cream-in-24000-fridge-as-americans-line-food-banks-909066?utm_campaign=bizpac&utm_content=Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_source=Get+Response&utm_term=EMAIL

Beijing’s Lies Are Killing People

Thomas Gallatin  

It is a fact that should be beyond dispute: The China Virus, a novel coronavirus, originated in Wuhan, China. Yet politics has a way of pressuring even those supposedly most concerned with scientific accuracy of finding ways to dance around the truth. Case in point, the widely respected scientific journal Nature released an editorial last week blasting those “who had erroneously been associating the virus with Wuhan and China,” even as the editors issued a mea culpa, saying, “That we did so was an error on our part, for which we take responsibility and apologize.” Are Nature’s editors apologizing for misinforming their readers as to the regional origin of COVID-19? No, they’re actually apologizing for failing to toe the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) line. Nature’s editors are so worried about being labeled as promoting xenophobia by the political elitists of the world that they are more than willing to play the role of CCP apologists.

Beijing has engaged in a major propaganda campaign aimed at spreading the lie that it had nothing to do with initiating or allowing the global pandemic. As is commonplace with totalitarian regimes, the Chinese communists led by Xi Jinping have engaged in a massive cover-up effort. Just one example is Beijing initiating obvious censorship — Fox News reports, “Two websites for leading universities in China seem to have published and then deleted academic research about the origins of the coronavirus.”Senior research fellow of Chinese studies at Monash University, Kevin Carrico, explained, “[The ChiComs] are seeking to transform it from a massive disaster to one where the government did everything right and gave the rest of the world time to prepare. There is a desire to a degree to deny realities that are staring at us in the face. … That this is a massive pandemic that originated in a place that the Chinese government really should have cleaned up after SARS.”On Saturday, Dr. Anthony Fauci blasted China for lying about human-to-human transmission of the virus back in December. “Early on we did not get correct information, and the incorrect information was propagated right from the beginning,” Fauci stated. He explained that this was why, back on January 21, he told the American public that the coronavirus was “not a major threat for the people in the United States.” Fauci continued, “It was in January, at a time when the Chinese were saying first that it was only going from an animal to a human and then, when there were human cases, that [they] looked like they were … inefficiently transmitted. It was at that time in mid-January that we made the statement.”Meanwhile, over the weekend, the U.S. overtook Italy as the nation suffering the most number of deaths from the novel coronavirus. And while that may be the official number, the likely case is China has systematically hidden its number of dead in an effort to propagate the myth that Beijing’s reaction in addressing the pandemic should be praised. The truth is the ChiComs’ direct malfeasance is the reason tens of thousands around the world are dead and dying. No matter how much Nature, the WHO, or China may bloviate about political concerns, the scientific fact remains the same: China started this.  ~The Patriot Post
