Cochrane Collaboration co-founder Peter Gøtzsche has written an article that reads as an open letter to scientists the world over.

“Looking back, it seems appropriate to abbreviate the covid-19 pandemic as the covid-19 panic, or to call it the pandemic of censorship and poor science,” he writes.

Science and free speech were among the earliest victims of covid-19. Free debate became a thing of the past.  Knowledgeable scientists who spoke out were harassed, censored and publicly humiliated.  Those who dared write critically about not just the vaccines but anything medically related were smeared with the labels “anti-vaxx” or “anti-science.”

The West African nation of Sierra Leone is at full throttle with its digital transformation efforts, and its MOSIP-based foundational identity system is the nucleus of this project. The Modular Open Source Identity Platform (“MOSIP”) is a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation initiative that provides a platform on which all countries can build their own digital ID system “for free.”

Harvard is joining the ranks of other universities in recognizing the obvious: SATs are a great way to measure aptitude. And now that Harvard is busy grappling with other issues like plagiarism among its top ranks, it has decided to quietly shuffle SAT requirements back to where they were pre-Covid. 

Harvard will reintroduce standardized testing requirements for admissions starting with the Class of 2029, deviating from its prior commitment to remain test-optional through the Class of 2030.

This change, prompted by criticism as peers like Yale, Dartmouth, and Brown resumed mandatory testing, will affect applicants for fall and winter 2024, who must submit SAT or ACT scores unless exceptions apply. In specific cases where students can't access these tests, Harvard will accept scores from Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate exams instead, according to the Harvard Crimson.

The government is preparing vaccine mandates for humans to tackle bird flu as top health officials warn that the H5N1 avian influenza virus will be a full-flown pandemic before the fall.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the vaccines for human bird flu and now ready for “mass production.”

Dr. Richard Bartlett, an emergency room director and former Texas Department of Health and Human Services advisory council member, joined “The Defender In-Depth” this week to discuss the latest media and government reports about bird flu, following the detection of the “highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) A.”

H5N1 and related strains have been identified in birds, poultry, cattle, mammals including cats and dolphins, and humans in Texas and Vietnam.

Blacks have become just silly. It’s like slapstick comedy. I guess the media is still claiming they are victims, though I think they’ve backed off from that a lot.

“A victimized young victim, very oppressed and still reeling from the trauma of slavery, pushed a granny down the church steps today, leaving her with a cracked skull and brain bleed. However, this is necessary, because like Nikki Haley says, whites need to feel personal pain because George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose while resisting arrest after committing a felony.”

It’s a lie on par with global warming or the coronavirus. However, it’s not quite as bad as the lie that Jews are victims of the Holocaust and therefore justified in massacring tens of thousands of children.

Russia launched massive missile and drone attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure on Thursday morning and destroyed one of Ukraine’s largest power plants in the Kyiv region.

The Russian Defense Ministry said the bombardment was in response to Ukrainian attacks on oil refineries and other energy infrastructure inside Russian territory. Ukraine has been stepping up attacks inside Russia as it has become clear there’s no hope for victory on the battlefield, and Ukrainian lines are at risk of collapsing.

“The Russian Armed Forces delivered a massive strike last night by air-launched and seaborne long-range precision weapons and unmanned aerial vehicles against Ukrainian fuel and energy facilities. The goal of the strike were achieved. All the targets were destroyed,” the Russian Defense Ministry said, according to TASS.
