Downtown Washington, DC has been essentially turned into a military fortress with 25,000 military troops deployed to the area, carrying rifles without any ammo loaded. Mainstream media is cheering the occupation of the city while inflating and fabricating threats from the right. Last week, federal prosecutors claimed in court they believe that was the “intent” of “Capitol rioters” to kidnap and kill lawmakers, but the acting US attorney for the District of Columbia admitted hours later that “we don’t have any direct evidence” of a plot to assassinate lawmakers on January 6.
As Joe Biden is set to become our new president following the disputed election, new polls show that the overwhelming majority, as high as 73%, of Americans believe that our country is on the wrong track. Victor Davis Hanson said that the militarization of DC is welcomed by the left when only months ago they balked at the military trying to quell violence in the streets by Antifa and BLM. He said that the background checks by the FBI on the troops guarding the Capitol is for media consumption pushing a narrative that a vast right-wing conspiracy is trying to overthrow the government when there is no evidence insurrectionists in the ranks even exists.
Downtown Washington, DC is currently under what essentially amounts to military occupation. Streets are locked down, guarded by Army vehicles and blocked off by huge, garish checkpoints. Vehicular traffic is limited to motorists who can show papers demonstrating that, as one Guardsman told me, they are conducting “legitimate business.” (Apparently this includes Uber drivers and food delivery workers.) According to official estimates, 25,000 military personnel are now deployed to the area — on top of countless federal, state, and local law enforcement agents. Troops roam around carrying rifles with no ammo loaded. If you can manage to navigate on foot to the perimeter of the National Mall, you encounter an enormous fencing apparatus, complete with barbed wire.
Question: does anyone with a media job find this situation to be worthy of some further inquiry? Or in other words, worthy of questioning the premise of why such an extravagantly intensive military presence is allegedly necessary? Is it proportionate to the scale of the purported threat? Has the nature of the threat itself — whatever that might be, exactly — been adequately probed to determine whether it is grounded in reality? Already a bunch of purported threats initially trumpeted across the media with the usual five-alarm-five hysteria have dissipated in short order, so there is perhaps some reason for doubt in that regard.
The Chicago Police Department is in a stand-off with leftist Mayor Lori Lightfoot who mandated that police officers and all city workers were required to receive the Covid-19 vaccine by October 15, or they would lose their jobs. When the deadline came, the city gave police to the end of the year to get vaccinated.
The unveiling of the national vaccine passport comes only a few weeks after Trudeau announced unprecedented COVID-19 jab mandates for all federal workers and said the un-jabbed will no longer be able to travel by air, boat, or train.
The CDC advisory panel advocated for mixing vaccines, no matter which vaccine individuals received first. Side effects and potential vaccine injuries due to mixing vaccines is unknown. More than 11 million people have received a booster or an additional dose of a vaccine to date.
For the third time this year, the US Supreme Court has denied a motion to halt mandatory COVID-19 vaccines, this time declining to block a vaccine requirement imposed by the state of Maine on health care workers.
Of the top 5 counties in the US that have the highest percentage of population fully vaccinated (99.9–84.3%), the CDC identified 4 of them as ‘High’ Transmission counties. Conversely, of the 57 counties that were classified as ‘low’ transmission counties by the CDC, 26.3% had a population fully vaccinated below 20%.
The jab, which fails to prevent transmission of Covid, will be made available to pediatricians, local pharmacies, and even at schools. The US has purchased 65 million doses of the Pfizer pediatric shot, which is expected to contain one-third of the dosage for adults and adolescents. The CDC will still recommend masks.
An In-N-Out store was shut down for employees failing to check vaccination ID. The company fiercely disagrees with any government order that forces a private company to discriminate against customers. “This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.”
Governor Polis encouraged kids and spouses to lie about taking a Covid vaccine: “A spouse, a parent you live with who doesn’t want to get it, is against it… you can still privately get that vaccine without your partner knowing if that’s what keeps the harmony in the family and you are protecting yourself.”
Five priests and two nuns were abducted in April, and were later released after a ransom was paid. Haitians mounted a nationwide strike to protest gang crime and kidnappings, which have been on the rise for years and have worsened since the July assassination of President Jovenel Moise
Fully vaccinated individuals are getting infected, and they can reportedly transmit the disease. They are being hospitalized and getting seriously ill, and they are dying. The CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has recorded 16,766 deaths from the experimental Covid vaccines over the past 10 months.

This is the second time in recent months that a radical left-wing judge has taken away visitation rights for an unvaccinated parent. Recently, Judge James Shapiro of Cook County, Illinois, restricted an unvaccinated mother from seeing her son in person. Shapiro recused himself from the case after public backlash.
Colin Powell acted as US Secretary of State and asserted that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in a speech that made false claims to the United Nations to make the case for war on Iraq. Tens of thousands of people, including about 5,000 US service members, died in the war, which lasted from 2003 until 2011.
The lawsuit argues that the mandate violates the First Amendment freedom of religion, that the vaccines were developed using aborted fetal cells, and that the mandate is unenforceable because it has only been issued an Emergency Use Authorization.
Newsom’s administration is defending state prison employees’ ability to choose whether they get vaccinated and is appealing the court ruling. California’s prison guard union made a $1.75 million donation to Newsom’s anti-recall election committee, showing that the governor’s mandate has little to do with health.
Big businesses in the private sector, including Amazon, Walmart, UPS, FedEx, Samsung, Home Depot and Target, were aware of this problem years ago and quietly diverted shipments of their goods to other ports, to avoid the ire of environmentalists.
