Israel lobby event spreads COVID-19 to Congress, White House

The 2020 AIPAC Conference in Washington, D.C. has exposed hundreds of senior American political leaders to potential coronavirus infection, including Members of Congress and US Vice President Mike Pence.

The incident occurred after three individuals who traveled from New York to attend the conference tested positive to COVID-19.

Attendees and speakers at the conference included the political elite of the American establishment. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended, as well as former presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz. Senator Cruz has since gone into home quarantine in response to the risk of infection.

In total 18,000 Americans and Israelis attend AIPAC, along with two-thirds of Congress.… Read the rest

Trusting the media is dangerous for your health

Watching the reactions of Aussies to shortages of toilet paper and non-perishable food in supermarkets has been an interesting case study in herd psychology and the madness of crowds. 

The majority of people, who rely upon the mainstream media for their news and views and so have not prepared for a global pandemic, are shocked and outraged at images of toilet paper missing from supermarket shelves. These are people who have never seen stores emptied of goods except in images from overseas or maybe during natural disasters. They’re people who take normal for granted, and trust the made-up millionaires on the screen in their living room to tell them what’s happening, what’s real and what’s not every night. … Read the rest

SHOTS FIRED: Greek coast guard uses force to repel Islamic invaders

The Greek coast guard has fired shots at boats sent by Turkey toward Europe filled with Islamic invaders.

Emperor Trump & the fall of the American republic

Just after President Trump’s State of the Union in January, Vice President Pence made a potentially explosive statement during an interview on Fox which went largely unnoticed. He stated in response to a question about Nancy Pelosi ripping up the president’s speech that, “I just have a strong feeling that she’s going to be the last speaker to sit in that chair for a long time.”

Not the last Democract speaker, but the last speaker period. You can check it out for yourself.

Did he misspeak? Maybe. But unlike Creepy Joe Biden, Mike Pence is known as a man who carefully weighs his words before speaking.… Read the rest

Children’s book celebrates homosexuality, gender fluidity for kids

A children’s book published in October last year encourages homosexuality, transgenderism and bisexuality for young children.

GayBCs, written by activist author M. L. Webb, markets itself as “a joyful celebration of LGBTQ+ vocabulary” that celebrates “the beauty of embracing one’s true self”. It is targeted at children 4-8 years old.

The setting for the book is a play date between four children who play games such as dress-ups, building a fort and playing with blocks.

Greens leader Adam Bandt pledges to destroy modern civilisation

Incoming Greens leader Adam Bandt has warned Australians that one of his top priorities will be to end the era of cheap energy the nation has enjoyed since the Industrial Revolution, and which has made the wealth of the modern era possible.

Mr Bandt made the controversial statement to media on Tuesday.

Big business that makes its money by killing people and endangering people’s safety should be worried. If you are a coal company or a gas company or an oil company then our message to you is very simple. Your business model is unsustainable, your business model is predicated on threatening human life, and [you] have to go.

ABC says Australia is an ‘unsafe, racist’ place for non-whites

ABC Life has published an article stating racial minorities in Australia are unsafe and that Aussies are racist towards those with a different skin colour.

The opinion piece, entitled ‘My story of racism and discrimination in Australia‘, was published by the flagship public broadcaster last Monday.

The anonymous author is of Indian background, and says he grew up in Engadine in south Sydney in the 1980s. He says his experiences having brown skin in the then majority-white area makes him able to relate to the ‘extra burden’ placed on Indigenous Australians.

The author says he wrote the op-ed in response to an article published two months earlier on ABC Life about the problem of widespread racism in the country.… Read the rest

Top medical journal: Wuhan probably contains 130,000 infected

Scientists from Hong Kong University have made public a report indicating that the Chinese city of Wuhan is likely to be home to more than 130,000 people infected with the Wuhan coronavirus, also known as 2019-nCoV.

The report was published in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet. To identify how many individuals are likely to be suffering from the illness, the researchers used data on the number of cases exported from Wuhan to find the rate of infection for the disease. The scientists then applied that rate to the population exposed to the virus.

The researchers predicted that epidemics are growing exponentially now in multiple major cities of China, with a lag time behind Wuhan of about 1-2 weeks.… Read the rest
