Alberta's reporting of comorbidities questioned after boy, 14, removed from COVID-19 death count

Nine months after being diagnosed with a Stage 4 brain tumour and two days after his family says he tested positive for COVID-19, Nathanael Spitzer of Ponoka, Alta., died in hospital.

When Dr. Deena Hinshaw told Albertans earlier this week that the 14-year-old had died of COVID-19, the province's chief medical officer of health triggered a wave of controversy over how coronavirus deaths are reported.

Hinshaw told a news conference on Tuesday that the boy had complex, pre-existing medical conditions that contributed to his death. Her comments renewed a debate surrounding Alberta's practice of reporting on comorbidities.

The boy's family publicly called on Hinshaw to retract her statement, suggesting that Nathanael had died of cancer, not COVID-19.

Supreme Court Weakens First Amendment Right to Film Police in Public

The U.S. Supreme Court has dealt a blow to police accountability and the First Amendment right of eyewitnesses to film and photograph police activity in public without fear of retaliation. In refusing to hear an appeal in Crocker v. Beatty, the Supreme Court has let stand a lower court ruling which granted qualified immunity to a police officer who confiscated a bystander’s cell phone, arrested him for resisting an officer, then allegedly punished him for trying to film police activity by locking him in a police car with the air conditioning turned off on a hot Florida afternoon. The Rutherford Institute had filed an amicus brief in support of Crocker, rebutting the Eleventh Circuit’s ruling that eyewitnesses to a highway accident don’t have a clearly established First Amendment right to film police activity.

U.S. media finally comes around, declares that government false flags are not crazy conspiracy theories after all

While the mainstream outlets have claimed for months any mention of a false flag was nothing more than a baseless conspiracy theory, that now appears to have changed, as reported by Caity Johnstone:

In a drastic pivot from typical denunciations of false flag operations as conspiratorial nonsense that don’t exist outside the demented imagination of Alex Jones, the US political/media class is proclaiming with one voice that Russia is currently orchestrating just such an operation to justify an invasion of Ukraine...

Neuralink seeks to hire Clinical Trial positions hinting toward imminent human testing

Neuralink, a company owned by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, is seeking to hire both a Clinical Trial Director and Coordinator, hinting that human testing for its series of brain implantation chips could be imminent.

In August 2020, Musk and Neuralink engineers unveiled the v0.9 device. The small “chip” could be integrated into the human brain to solve a variety of problems, including depression and anxiety, blindness, paralysis, seizures, and other neurological disorders. “It’s like a FitBit in your skull with tiny wires,” Musk half-joked during his presentation. “I could have it right now and you wouldn’t even know. Maybe I do!”

McLaughlin Poll: Trump Trounces Hillary Clinton in 2016 Rematch

Hillary Clinton faces long odds in trying to win the Democrat presidential nomination for a second time, let alone the general election, according to a new McLaughlin and Associates survey.

Clinton, defeated by then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016, loses a rematch 51% to 41%, the McLaughlin poll found. That's only slightly better (51%-40%) than Vice President Kamala Harris would do against Trump.

The McLaughlin poll taken Jan. 13-18 also found that Trump defeats President Joe Biden 49% to 44% in a 2020 rematch.

"Buyer's remorse for President Trump is as strong as ever. President Trump dominates the potential GOP primary field," Pollster John McLaughlin told the Washington Examiner.

Didn't kill himself the first time: Did Epstein really attempt suicide?

US Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) documents released to RT investigative unit The Detail pose serious questions about Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged attempt to kill himself while incarcerated in the Metropolitan Correctional Center. The files, released in response to a Freedom of Information request, cast doubt on this key component of the official narrative surrounding his ever-mysterious alleged suicide – namely, did it even happen?

According to the established timeline of events, Epstein was found injured and semi-conscious on the floor of his cell in the early hours of July 23, 2019, 17 days after his imprisonment on charges of child sex trafficking, with marks of an unspecified nature around his neck. Claiming to remember nothing about what happened, his cellmate, former NYPD officer Nicholas Tartaglione – who has coincidentally shared the same legal representation as Epstein’s partner and ‘madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell – likewise pleaded ignorance.

Kevin McCarthy: ‘We Can Fix This Country … If We Fire Nancy Pelosi’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bad week is only getting worse by the day.

Pelosi is embroiled in the controversy surrounding lawmakers and shady trades. She was also mocked on social media for handing out masks to members of Congress that had “made in China” on them.

GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy is telling voters that in November, they can “retire” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once and for all.

McCarthy spoke on Fox News about November’s midterm elections and the state of the country under Joe Biden in the White House and Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress.

The California Republican said the best thing voters can do is “fire” Pelosi and give Republicans back control of the House.

According to a Federalist analysis of the 84 subpoenas publicly issued by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Select Committee on Jan. 6, only 8 have targeted individuals or groups with any connection to the Capitol riot. The rest have taken aim at former government officials and private citizens in a smear campaign for exercising their constitutional right to protest.

The 84 subpoenas do not include the more than 100 seeking the telephone records of individuals whose identities remain under seal, both from the public and from those whose privacy the committee seeks to violate.

Epidemic of insanity strikes America’s leaders

It must be a hitherto unreported side-effect of the Omicron strain, perhaps a malignant protein activated by the rays of the full moon. America’s political class, Democrat and Republican alike, appear to have gone babbling, barking mad, starting with President Joe Biden, but afflicting his political opponents as well.

Biden’s January 19 press conference drew pity from the global press, with verbal gaffes unlike anything that has escaped the mouth of an American president before. He predicted a Russian military move into Ukraine: “My guess is he will move in. He has to do something.” Russia will be “held accountable if it invades,” Biden said, but added, “It depends on what it does. It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about what to do and not do, et cetera.”

France ready to send NATO troops to Romania

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, announced on Wednesday, January 19, that France would send troops to Romania as part of NATO operations to ensure the security of the eastern alliance states, G4media.ro reported.

The statement comes amid a security crisis on NATO's eastern flank.

"We have sent troops to ensure the security of our European partners in NATO missions, to our friends in the Baltic area, and we will continue to do so. We have shown our readiness to move forward, within NATO, to engage in new missions and to take responsibility for "enhanced advanced presence" missions, especially in Romania.

UPDATE: Elections Expert Reveals Over 550,000 Registered Voters In Wisconsin Have a Registration Date of 1/1/1918 – 115,252 of Them VOTED in 2020 (VIDEO)

On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Assembly held another election integrity hearing to present evidence of voter fraud and irregularities that have been found in their investigation of the rigged 2020 election.

And just like last month’s election hearing, they dropped some serious bombshells.

Yesterday’s hearing built on those findings and presented more questions for the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), which has failed to answer previous questions on the 2020 election.

They did however respond to the reported 119,283 active voters who have been registered for over 100 years, but their weak response just didn’t cut it.

Wisconsin Assembly Attorney Dean O’Donnell, who is an expert analyst on the election integrity team, called out the official explanation that was given, saying “it does not hold water,” before dropping some more of his team’s jaw-dropping findings of corruption in the 2020 election.

Liberties Only Kept Safe by Limitation of Government Power

I was recently struck by the explosion of the federal government’s size and reach, as well as its apparent ambition to super-size itself even more, in an unusual way.

I had been looking up something in one of my old public finance textbooks, when I came across a section on the size and growth of government. What struck me was that the authors used exclamation points (an almost extinct species in such writing) over two decades ago to describe government’s expansion, particularly at the federal level. But the rate at which government has recently metastasized leaves those exclamation points in the dust. We would also have to use all caps today (as in “YOU MAY ALREADY HAVE WON”). From said book: total expenditures by all levels of government in 1990 were substantially smaller than just one of the recent stimulus bills.

Lawmakers led by Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and including conservative Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virgina and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, are due to meet virtually on Friday to discuss reform of the 1887 Electoral Count Act, sometimes called the ECA, which allows members of Congress to dispute presidential election results.

Collins, who said her group includes six Democrats, told reporters on Thursday that the aim is "an election reform bill that is truly bipartisan, that would address many of the problems that arose on Jan. 6 and that would help restore confidence in our elections."

Thousands of news stories and commentators accepted and amplified the anonymously-sourced allegations-- which included no comments from those involved-- as if they were proven true, disparaging and smearing Gorsuch.

Azerbaijan Inquiry Is Basis for FBI Raid of Rep. Cuellar's Home

The FBI has raided the home of Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, amid a federal investigation into the former Soviet state of Azerbaijan and its ties to U.S. businessmen, according to ABC News.

Cuellar, a Democrat, has been heavily critical of the Biden administration's handling of conditions at the U.S.-Mexico border in west Texas, where his district lies.

Any raid on Cuellar's home was "court-authorized," an FBI spokesman told ABC News.

A source told ABC News it is not known if Cuellar is a target of the investigation.

Cuellar said in a statement he "will fully cooperate in any investigation" and that he is "committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld."

Cuellar has been a co-chair of the Congressional Azerbaijan Caucus, and has met with Azerbaijan officials, including Azerbaijan Ambassador Elin Suleymanov, according to the report.

“Chunks’ is an interesting word,” Pelosi said about Biden’s comments on Wednesday. “What the president calls ‘chunks’ I hope would be a major bill going forward. It may be more limited, but it is still significant.”

Russia Sends Two S-400 Battalions to Belarus for Drills: Interfax

Russia is sending two battalions of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems to Belarus to join military drills there next month, the Interfax news agency said on Friday, at a time of acute tensions with the West over neighboring Ukraine.

Russian military forces and hardware began arriving in Belarus this week for the "Allied Resolve" drills to be held near the former Soviet republic's western border with NATO members Poland and Lithuania, and close to its southern flank with Ukraine.

Western states fear that Russia, which has massed tens of thousands of troops on its borders with Ukraine, is planning a new assault on a country it invaded in 2014. Russia has denied such plans. Lithuania has also said the buildup of Russian troops there was a threat to its security.

"The base of the silicone nipple has a fine slit that can cause the nipple to detach from the plastic shield, posing a choking hazard," according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recalled pacifiers, made by Frigg in Denmark, come in two types: The "Classic" version has a silicone nipple attached to a round plastic shield; in a version called "Daisy," the nipple is attached to a round, scalloped plastic shield. Each design comes in 40 colors and two sizes, 0 to 6 months and 6 to 18 months. Each pacifier has the name "Frigg" in raised letters on the handle of the pacifier shield.

ERIC Investigation, Part 2: The Largest U.S. Counties Removed Only ZERO to TWO Ineligible Voters From Their Voter Rolls the Last 4 Years

On Thursday The Gateway Pundit revealed Democrats and leftists have fought ferociously to prevent the cleanup of State voter registration rolls. Recognizing a potential niche, left-wing activists created ERIC to clean voter rolls their way, using their rules. So in 2012 the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) was formed as a membership organization primarily for blue States. ERIC is essentially a left wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up. But it’s been gaining traction in Red States too. Originally funded by the Soros Open Society, it is now responsible for cleaning the voter rolls in 31 States, plus D.C. A top election official from each member State is appointed a seat on the ERIC Board or as an Officer, all unpaid positions.

As we reported — The ERIC database is comprehensive and would be one of the most coveted by bad actors looking to influence an election.

Yemeni rebels say Saudi-led airstrike on prison killed 70

A Saudi-led airstrike targeting a prison run by Yemen’s Houthi rebels killed at least 70 detainees and wounded dozens Friday, a rebel minister said. The strike was part of a pounding aerial offensive that hours earlier took the Arab world’s poorest country off the internet.

The intense campaign comes after the Iran-backed Houthis claimed a drone and missile attack that struck inside the capital of the United Arab Emirates earlier in the week. It marked a major escalation in the conflict, a brutal civil war in Yemen where the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the UAE, has battled the rebels since 2015.

Taha al-Motawakel, health minister in the Houthi government which controls the country’s north, told The Associated Press in the capital, Sanaa, that 70 detainees were killed at the prison but that he expects the number to rise in the coming hours since many of the wounded were seriously hurt.

A federal district judge in Texas temporarily blocked the Biden administration’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate for federal employees Friday as litigation against it moves forward, now leaving the White House’s policy for healthcare workers as its only vaccine requirement still in effect.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Vincent Brown issued an injunction that temporarily halts the policy nationwide, after a coalition of federal employees and contractors challenged it in court.

Brown ruled President Joe Biden overstepped his authority by enacting the employee mandate, saying that imposing the policy “with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress … is a bridge too far.”

Transcript of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Farewell Address (1961)

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence-economic, political, even spiritual-is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

Dwight D. Eisenhower Address to the American Society of Newspaper Editors

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

President Joe Biden was clear on the campaign trail that he wanted to close Guantánamo Bay. But nearly one year into his presidency, not only is the Biden administration not closing Guanátnamo Bay, it’s funding millions of dollars’ worth of upgrades, leaving prisoners languishing there with no end in sight.

Namely, in the coming year, the administration is planning on building a new courtroom on Guantánamo Bay, according to Ron Flevsig, a spokesman for the Office of Military Commissions.

Aid Flights Arrive In Tonga After Volcanic Eruption

The first flights carrying aid to Tonga have finally arrived. Planes from New Zealand and Australia arrived on Thursday carrying fresh water and other supplies.

The South Pacific island nation was hit by tsunami, which was triggered by an underwater volcanic eruption last week. The deliveries came after the nation’s main airport runway was cleared of ash.

“It has taken some days now for the airfield to be cleared sufficiently for us to land there, but there’s still remnants of volcanic ash on the runway and in the area of the flight line area which does complicate our capacity to the airfield, ” explained Dean Bolton, Squadron Wing Commander for the Royal Australian Air Force. “However, we successfully landed and delivered the aid as tasked.”

Kayleigh McEnany blasts Biden: ‘Most delusional press conference I've ever seen’

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany didn't pull any punches when describing President Joe Biden's Wednesday press conference.

McEnany joined co-hosts on Fox News's Outnumbered on Thursday to discuss the press conference, which reflected on Biden's accomplishments during his first year in office.

“I thought that was the most delusional press conference I have ever seen,” McEnany said. “He said he overperformed and that the American people give him a 33% approval rating in Quinnipiac.”

M&M's re-designed its characters to be "progressive" and they look virtually identical to the old version except now they're all apparently woke

It's always exciting when a 70-year-old corporate candy mascot gets a major makeover. Who could pretend not to be jazzed about such a once-in-a-generation cultural event?

But, um, somebody needs to tell M&M's that when you re-design your characters, you're actually supposed to, you know... re-design your characters:

MSNBC: We Have to Break Through This Idea 'That Kids Belong to Their Parents'

In a 30-second promo for MSNBC’s Lean Forward campaign, Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry advocates that society end the “private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” and instead institute a “collective notion” that kids “are our children,” they belong to the community.

In the MSNBC advertisement, Perry says, “We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children: your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.”

US Mulls Evacuating Diplomats' Family Members From Ukraine; Blinken-Lavrov Meeting 'Positive'

The US State Department is reportedly mulling a plan to evacuate diplomats' family members from Ukraine as a precaution amid the continued crisis wherein Washington has predicted some level of a Russian offensive on the Ukraine border.

At the same time, Russia's embassy in Washington D.C. has been calling on the West to "end the hysteria" - assuring that there are no plans to invade Ukraine. Earlier in the week it issued a message on Twitter, saying, "We stress once again: Russia is not going to attack anyone. The practice of moving troops on our own soil is a sovereign right."

"Bizarro World": Researcher Calls Out Censorship After Journal Pulls COVID-19 Vaccine Adverse Events Analysis

Jessica Rose didn’t ask for any of this. She started to analyze data on adverse reactions after COVID-19 vaccines simply as an exercise to master a new piece of software. But she couldn’t ignore what she saw and decided to publish the results of her analysis. The next thing she knew, she was in a “bizzarro world,” she told The Epoch Times.

A paper she co-authored based on her analysis was withdrawn by the academic journal Elsevier under circumstances that raised eyebrows among her colleagues. The journal declined to comment on the matter.

Russia votes on mandatory life imprisonment for pedophiles

Serial pedophiles will spend the rest of their days behind bars in Russia’s prisons for repeatedly abusing minors, under recent amendments to the criminal code which have been approved by legislators.

The second and third readings of the bill were passed on Tuesday, containing changes aimed at increasing responsibility for assaulting children.

Duma chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said on Telegram that “those who have previously been convicted of violent acts against minors or committed crimes against two or more children will face punishment.” A life sentence will also be possible for cases aggravated by other serious or very grave crimes.

“The work will continue. It’s important for us to protect children from abuse… from those who can use their position for such crimes,” he added.

Raeisi-Putin meeting showed tightening bonds against US

In a meeting with Russian President Vladimir V. Putin, Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi reminded his Russian counterpart on Wednesday that Tehran had been “resisting America for 40 years.”

And now that Russia was plunging deeper into its own confrontation with the United States, Raeisi told Putin in televised remarks, it was time to take on “the power of the Americans with an increased synergy between our two countries.

Iran's president started a two-day trip to Moscow on Wednesday designed to demonstrate tightening bonds between two countries, increasingly, along with China, a single adversary: the United States.

For Putin, embroiled in a dispute with the United States and facing sanctions if he follows military measures on Ukraine, it was a chance to show that Russia has friends it can call on in its battles with the West.

First look: Biden inaugural to blanket airwaves today

President Biden's Presidential Inaugural Committee will mark his first anniversary in office by blanketing today's airwaves — from breakfast to evening news to prime time — with a video promoting a recovering, resilient America.

The video is narrated by Tom Hanks, who was part of Biden inaugural festivities, and features cameos by everyday Americans — a UPS driver, a Teamster from Michigan and a bed-and-breakfast owner in Wisconsin.

"I can feel the change," says Sandra Lindsay, a New York nurse who was the first person in the U.S. to get the COVID vaccine.

President Biden says near the end: "I've never been more optimistic about America's future."

Joe Biden one year on: Has the United States become ungovernable?

One of Joe Biden's central election campaign themes was restoring unity to an angry and divided nation. Twelve months after assuming office, things aren't any better, writes Nick Bryant.

Long before the sun had risen over the dome of the US Capitol on the day that Joe Biden was sworn in as president, technicians on the inaugural platform tested the teleprompter he would later read from by scrolling through America's most celebrated sermon:

"Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure."

As America Enters Year Three of COVID, The Biden Regime Struggles to Reprogram Its Pandemic-Crazed Base

Readers of Revolver have known the truth about Covid-19 for well over a year now. The truth, reduced to a few key and essential facts, is as follows:

Covid-19 is, overall, not that deadly, and getting less deadly all the time.

Most of those who die of Covid are already unwell, often extremely unwell.

Most interventions to contain Covid, in particular lockdowns and ubiquitous masking, don’t work.

Children are nearly immune to Covid and do very little to spread it.

In terms of effect on America’s prosperity, stability, health, and mental well-being, the “cures” for Covid have been far more harmful than the disease itself.
