Rand Paul, during the second night of the Republican National Convention, praised President Trump as someone who “gets things done” as he called for voters to support the president's re-election "if you hate war like I hate war."

"I fear Biden will choose war again." Paul noted that Biden "supported war in Serbia, Syria, and Libya."

Hillary Clinton says Joe Biden should not concede on election night 'under any circumstances'

Hillary Clinton says Joe Biden should not concede on election night 'under any circumstances' | 25 Aug 2020 | Hillary Clinton issued a warning for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in a new interview released Tuesday, urging the former vice president to not concede defeat on the night of the Nov. 3 election -- no matter the circumstances." Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances," Clinton said. "Because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win, if we don't give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is." Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee [and deep-state neocon dirt-bag], lost the presidential election four years ago to President Trump. "We've got to have a massive legal operation," she said. "And I know the Biden campaign is working on that."

How a False COVID-19 Narrative Was Created and Sustained for Six Months

How a False COVID-19 Narrative Was Created and Sustained for Six Months | 20 Aug 2020 | Dr. Meryl Nass has compiled a damning checklist that keeps increasing; it currently lists 47 fully documented facts that constitute a case against government officials' collusion to demonize an effective existing medicine. They even designed clinical trials that required high doses of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine that were known -- to the medical profession -- to be toxic and potentially lethal. These officials bear responsibility for causing preventable deaths of possibly hundreds of thousands of patients. Following publication by The Lancet of a demonstrably FRAUDULENT study, the World Health Organization suspended its hydroxychloroquine studies and urged countries around the world to suspend both their clinical trials, and prevent doctors from using the drug for Covid. Several governments did ban the use of the drug. Some, like Switzerland, lifted the ban after the Lancet study was retracted two weeks after publication. Switzerland, which had been using the drug for months, banned Hydroxychloroquine from May 27th until June 11th. Here is the Johns Hopkins graph documenting the precipitous increase in the case fatality rate (CFR) -- i.e., preventable deaths that occurred in Switzerland during the 13-day period during which patients were denied this life-saving treatment.

New York University moves to implement racial segregation in student dorms

New York University moves to implement racial segregation in student dorms | 24 Aug 2020 | Since late June, the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services at New York University (NYU) has been working closely with a small, student-led task force to make racially segregated housing a reality in undergraduate student dorms. On July 20, Washington Square News, the weekly undergraduate student newspaper of NYU, published an article titled "Student-Led Task Force Calls for Black Housing on Campus," in which they reported on the university's willingness to help implement residential communities open solely to "Black-identifying students with Black Resident Assistants." Since then, the university has officially given the project a green light, aiming to have NYU’s first segregated residential floor established by Fall 2021. ...Despite signs of minimal support from the undergraduate student body--the online petition has garnered a mere 1,105 signatures out of the 26,733 total undergraduates currently studying at NYU--the proposal for race-based housing has been warmly welcomed by the university administration.

CNN's Don Lemon says 'cultist' Trump supporters need to be 'deprogrammed' before voting

CNN's Don Lemon says 'cultist' Trump supporters need to be 'deprogrammed' before voting​ | 24 Aug 2020 | CNN anchor Don Lemon recently said that supporters of President Donald Trump are like "cultists" who need to be "deprogrammed" before voting in the upcoming election. Lemon made the comments Friday while speaking with fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo [brother of serial killer Andrew Cuomo, who murdered over 11,000 senior citizens in New York] on the network. During the conversation, Lemon shared his unvarnished thoughts on the tens of millions of Americans who support the president. "If I had a real friend, who was involved in a cult, which I feel it is cultish behavior, I must try to help them," Lemon said, comparing those who support the president to blind followers of a cult... Lemon then suggested that a type of intervention is necessary before Trump supporters are allowed to vote. "[Trump] lies to people and they believe it," he said. "And so, what is that? Cultish behavior. And I think a lot of people need to be deprogrammed, right now, before they cast their next ballots."

Trump accuses Democrats of 'using COVID to steal our election' in defiant RNC remarks after nomination --'Don't let them take it away from you,' president warns | 24 Aug 2020 | President Trump accused Democrats of "using COVID to steal our election” after securing the Republican nomination for president on the first day of the 2020 Republican National Convention.

Kamala Harris--took the stage and warned that Democrats are trying to "steal" the election. "What they're doing is using COVID to steal our election," Trump said Monday from Charlotte, N.C., warning also against potential widespread fraud with regard to mail-in ballots for the election.

Republicans officially renominate Donald Trump for president

Breaking: Republicans officially renominate Donald Trump for president | 24 Aug 2020 | Republicans officially selected President Trump to be their party's nominee on Monday, setting up a general election battle against Democratic nominee Joe Biden. President Trump made a surprise appearance in the convention hall in Charlotte, N.C., where he touted the administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic and said he'd rebuild the economy to where it was before the "plague."

Teens interpret a correctly-punctuated text as a signal of irritation, linguists say

Teens interpret a correctly-punctuated text as a signal of irritation, linguists say --Full stop is 'intimidating' to young people because they interpret it as sign of anger | 24 Aug 2020 | Full stops intimidate young people when used in social media communication as they are interpreted as a sign of anger, according to linguistic experts. Teenagers and those in their early twenties, classified as Generation Z, have grown up with smartphones which they use to send short messages without full stops. And a study from Binghamton University in New York suggested that people who finish messages with full stops are perceived as insincere. Linguistic experts are now investigating why teens interpret a correctly-punctuated text as a signal of irritation. The debate was reignited after writer Rhiannon Cosslett tweeted: 'Older people - do you realise that ending a sentence with a full stop comes across as sort of abrupt and unfriendly to younger people in an email/chat? Genuinely curious.' Several Twitter users expressed disbelief, and, despite her own use of a full stop, one even accused her of 'peak snowflakery'.

Joe Biden accused of plagiarizing from Jack Layton's final letter in nomination speech

Joe Biden accused of plagiarizing from Jack Layton's final letter in nomination speech --Social media was quick to point out that the words were eerily similar to ones found in a letter Layton wrote before he died in 2011 | 21 Aug 2020 | Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, a man not unaccustomed to allegations of plagiarism, is now being accused of copying the words of former New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton. At a speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, Biden's final address included the lines, "For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. And light is more powerful than dark." Social media was quick to point out that the words were eerily similar to ones found in a letter Layton wrote before he died in 2011. "My friends, love is better than anger," said Layton in his letter. "Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair." Biden's remarks were made two days before the ninth anniversary of Layton's death. Sophia Banks, a plant-based chef, tweeted that she was disappointed Biden copied Layton's comments. "Jack Layton is trending," tweeted Banks. "One of Canada's most beloved politicians. As Biden butchers his dying words left to us."

Joe Biden faces new plagiarism claim over DNC acceptance speech

Joe Biden faces new plagiarism claim over DNC acceptance speech | 22 Aug 2020 | Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden reprised his penchant for borrowing lines from plagiarizing other people's work this week -- apparently relying a bit too heavily on the words of a deceased Canuck party leader during at the Democratic National Convention, reports said. Biden concluded his Thursday night speech by saying: "For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. Light is more powerful than dark." But Canadian media quickly noted that the former veep's words were uncannily similar to those of Jack Layton, the leader of Canada's left-wing New Democratic Party, who issued a poignant open letter to his fellow citizens as he lay dying in 2011. "My friends," Layton wrote, "Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair." Biden's word play -- delivered two days before the nine-year anniversary of Layton's death -- gave some in the Great White North a serious case of déjà vu. "A number of Canadians are struck by the similar parting words of Biden's speech to the final words of Jack Layton's farewell letter before his death," CBC's Washington correspondent Alexander Panetta tweeted at the time.

Michigan appeals court backs Whitmer's use of emergency powers amid coronavirus pandemic

Michigan appeals court backs Whitmer's use of emergency powers amid coronavirus pandemic | 22 Aug 2020 | A Michigan appeals court on Friday ruled in favor of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, finding that her emergency declarations and orders in response to the coronavirus were legal. Whitmer implemented strict lockdown measures during the crisis, and has since extended the state of emergency to keep gyms and movie theaters closed. Masks are required in many parts of the state. Republicans in the state's Legislature argued that she had overstepped her authority, and can unilaterally extend emergencies only if they are local, not statewide, under the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act (EPGA). They said a separate 1976 law means statewide emergencies need the Legislature's approval after 28 days. The appeals court, in a 2-1 decision, however, upheld a lower court's ruling that the moves were within her power.

Trump calls out FDA for holding up coronavirus treatments until after election, Fauci reportedly intervened to push for delay on emergency approval for blood plasma therapy | 22 Aug 2020 | President Trump on Saturday accused the Food and Drug Administration Saturday of deliberately slow-walking COVID-19 treatments to hurt his 2020 reelection chances. "The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics. Obviously, they are hoping to delay the answer until after November 3rd. Must focus on speed, and saving lives!," Trump tweeted, tagging agency commissioner Dr. Stephen M. Hahn. Earlier in the week, the FDA halted an emergency approval for blood plasma as a treatment for the disease. Top government scientists, including Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. Anthony Fauci [aka Fraudci], reportedly intervened to push for a delay. "You have a lot of people over there who don't want to rush things because they want to do it after November 3," Trump said Wednesday after the news broke.

Democratic lawmakers on the House Oversight and Reform Committee have raised concerns about the administration's moves to advance the Pebble Mine. President Trump has faced pressure to block the mine, including from GOP megadonor Andy Sabin, who told Politico he's "fairly certain" the project will be nixed. The president's son Donald Trump Jr., has recently come out against the Pebble Mine as well, citing concerns about the proximity to Bristol Bay. [Excellent!

Virginia health commissioner says coronavirus vaccine will be mandatory

Heads up! Virginia health commissioner says coronavirus vaccine will be mandatory | 22 Aug 2020 | State Health Commissioner Dr. Norman Oliver told 8News on Friday that he plans to mandate [deadly, rushed] coronavirus vaccinations for Virginians once one is made available to the public.

Health officials say an immunization could be released as early as 2021.Dr. Oliver says that, as long as he is still the Health Commissioner, he intends to mandate the coronavirus vaccine. Virginia Freedom Keepers Director of Communications Kathleen Medaries, a mother of three from Chesterfield, says this is a matter of medical choice. "This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It's not a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine issue," Medaries said... "He [Oliver] shouldn't be the one person to make a decision for all of Virginians," Medaries responded. [*We'll take your shot after you take ours.*]

Ethicist Recommends Drugging People With 'Morality Pills' in Water Supply to Make Them Wear Masks

Ethicist Recommends Drugging People With 'Morality Pills' in Water Supply to Make Them Wear Masks --'Moral enhancement' recommended to force people to wear masks | 21 Aug 2020 | Academic nonprofit The Conversation has published an opinion piece by ethicist Parker Crutchfield in which Crutchfield advocated for the compulsory use of "morality pills" to force people to comply with mask mandates. ...The bioethics professor goes on to bemoan the gall of citizens who refuse to comply with mask mandates, and recommends "moral enhancement," which he describes as “the use of substances to make you more moral." Crutchfield notes that people may refuse to take the so-called moral enhancement pills. The remedy to the latter problem, Crutchfield theorizes, "would be to make moral enhancement compulsory or administer it secretly, perhaps via the water supply." Crutchfield's moral enhancement strategy may not be as much of a "far-out proposal" as one may think at first glance. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts ruled this week that all students from six months old up to 30-year-old graduate students will be required to receive a flu vaccination by December 31, even though attending classes remotely through Zoom or online class models. Doctors have also recommended injecting lithium into the public water supply to combat record high rates of depression and suicide during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Trump Attempt to Sanction Iran Sparks Outrage, Sets Up Collision With Allies

Trump Attempt to Sanction Iran Sparks Outrage, Sets Up Collision With Allies | 21 Aug 2020 | Several countries expressed outrage Thursday at President Donald Trump's demand that the U.N. Security Council reimpose devastating sanctions against Iran for violating a 2015 nuclear agreement, even though the Trump administration walked away from the deal two years ago. Known as "snapback," the provisions within the original agreement allow for signatories to put back in place international sanctions against Iran if it were to violate the deal, as Trump told reporters Wednesday that Iran had. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to New York on Thursday to begin informing Security Council members that they must now impose all of the sanctions that were lifted as a part of the deal brokered by the Obama administration. The move sets the U.S. up for a collision with the other permanent members of the Security Council, as well as Germany.
