School-Board Association Wants Patriot Act Used against Parents who Oppose Masking & CRT in Schools

The National School Boards Association, which represents some 90,000 school-board officials, has asked the White House to intervene against parents who oppose Covid masking and teaching racist ideology. The organization says parents are engaged in “domestic terrorism” and asked the White House to use the Justice Department, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security against parents who protest. It even has asked the White House to consider using the USA Patriot Act against parents and community leaders who oppose masking and teaching critical-race theory. The National School Boards Association also wants the White House to designate anti-mask and anti-critical race theory protests as acts of “domestic terrorism” and “hate crimes.” The White House signaled that it is open to using the full power of the federal government against parents who oppose mandatory masking and teaching critical-race theory. -GEG

An organization representing some 90,000 school board officials has asked the White House to intervene against parents who oppose onerous coronavirus masking mandates and the teaching of racialist ideology.

In fact, the National School Boards Association argued this week that parents are engaged in “domestic terrorism” and asked the White House to use the Justice Department, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security against protesters. It has even asked the White House to consider deploying the USA PATRIOT Act against parents and community leaders who oppose mask mandates and the teaching of critical race theory.

The “immediate threat” facing U.S. public school officials requires a coordinated response from top federal law enforcement agencies, National School Boards Association President Viola Garcia and interim executive director and CEO Chip Slaven said this week in a letter to President Joe Biden, citing a number of incidents in which school board officials were threatened or insulted by angry parents and other concerned citizens.

“As these threats and acts of violence have become more prevalent,” they said, “during public school board meetings, via documented threats transmitted through the U.S. Postal Service, through social media and other online platforms, and around personal properties — NSBA respectfully asks that a joint collaboration among federal law enforcement agencies, state and local law enforcement, and with public school officials be undertaken to focus on these threats.”

 

 

The letter adds, “NSBA specifically solicits the expertise and resources of the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service, and its National Threat Assessment Center regarding the level of risk to public schoolchildren, educators, board members, and facilities/campuses.”

The board has also asked the White House to deploy the expertise and authority of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service to intervene against “threatening letters” and “cyberbullying attacks.”

That’s not all. The school board group wants to take things a step further. It wants the White House to designate anti-mask and anti-critical race theory protests as acts of “domestic terrorism” and “hate crimes.” It wants the White House to bring in the USA PATRIOT Act against protesters.

Excerpt from USA Today:

What’s more, faith in local teachers and school leaders has fallen, according to a USA TODAY/Ipsos poll conducted in late August and early September.

About 76% of the general public approved of their local public school teachers in 2018, but that fell to 65% this fall. Support for school and district leaders also dipped in 2021, the poll showed. 

Still, on balance, the majority of adults support COVID-19 mitigation in schools, which is the opposite position of many people leading the fights at school board meetings. On the whole, 65% of adults support states or schools enforcing mask mandates; 65% support mandatory vaccinations for school staff and 59% support mandatory vaccinations for eligible students, the poll showed.

As for critical race theory, 49% of respondents supported teaching about the theory in schools.




Australia: New South Wales Premier Resigns, Accused of Taking Bribes to Push Vaccines

Australia: Gladys Berejiklian, the Premier of New South Wales, resigned on Friday as she now is under investigation by the Independent Commission Against Corruption into her secret romantic relationship with former Wagga Wagga MP Daryl Maguire, and whether she played a role in grants that were made to special interest groups. Only days earlier, Berejiklian warned Sydney residents that, if they don’t take the Covid jab, they face total social isolation indefinitely after the stay-at-home order ends in December. Two weeks ago, Clive Palmer, a wealthy businessman in the mining and resort industries who created a new political party, the United Australia Party, said that Pfizer and AstraZeneca are behind Gladys Berejiklian’s frantic push for vaccines in NSW and have paid her tens-of-millions-of-dollars. -GEG

Update:  NSW Premier Berejiklian’s Deputy Premier John Barilaro also announced his resignation and will leave parliament. Barilaro said the constant pressure from media scrutiny and his defamation case against YouTuber Jordan Shanks is a ‘big reason’ for his departure. Five other officials also resigned.

Gladys Berejiklian has resigned in extraordinary circumstances.

For most Australians, the news will come as a shock, given the focus has been almost exclusively on the state’s devastating Covid-19 outbreak and her handling of that.

So, how did we get to this point? What caused Berejiklian’s downfall?

And what comes next for the New South Wales government, which has, yet again, found itself ensnared by the powerful anti-corruption commission?

What happened today?

About midday, an email from the Independent Commission Against Corruption landed in the inbox of media organisations.

It revealed that Icac was investigating the conduct of Berejiklian between 2012 and 2018, specifically her involvement in grants handed to the Australian Clay Target Association in 2016-17 and the Riverina Conservatorium of Music in Wagga Wagga in 2018.

The investigation is focused on any relationship between the grants and the secret relationship that existed at the time between Berejiklian and disgraced former Wagga Wagga MP Daryl Maguire, who had been advocating for the money.

Not long after Icac’s announcement, an email from Berejiklian’s office announced she would be making a “significant announcement” at 1pm.

She fronted the media, denied any wrongdoing and announced her resignation.She did not take questions from journalists.

US Senator Dianne Feinstein Introduces Bill to Require Covid Vax or Negative Test for Domestic Flights

California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced a bill, the US Air Travel Public Safety Act, to require proof of vaccination, a negative test result for Covid-19, or proof of full recovery from a coronavirus infection to be able to fly on domestic flights. She said, “Ensuring that air travelers protect themselves and their destination communities from this disease is critical to prevent the next surge, particularly if we confront new, more virulent variants of COVID-19.” The virus, however, has yet to be isolated and proven to be the cause of illness, the tests are flawed and don’t test for a virus, and people who have been vaccinated can still test positive for Covid-19. The proposed law has nothing to do with health but is instead merely one more step toward the totalitarian state. -GEG

Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) on Thursday introduced a bill to require proof of vaccination or negative Covid test for domestic flights.

The 88-year-old senator, who has been spotted in airports without a face mask throughout the pandemic, introduced the “US Air Travel Public Safety Act” which would force Americans to show their papers in order to move about the country.

“The U.S. Air Travel Public Safety Act would require the Department of Health and Human Services and the Federal Aviation Administration to develop standards for airlines to verify that a person has either been vaccinated, tested negative for COVID-19 or has fully recovered from a coronavirus infection to be able to fly.” The Hill reported.

Former FDA Commissioner Says 6-Foot Distancing was Arbitrary and not Based on Science

Scott Gottlieb, the former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, admitted during an interview on Face the Nation that the six-foot social-distancing rule by the CDC was the only reason why most schools remained shut, but there was no science behind it. The rule was entirely arbitrary. -GEG

Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), admitted during an interview on Face the Nation that the six foot social distancing rule recommended by public health officials for months on end was actually “arbitrary in and of itself,” and he noted that “nobody knows where it came from.”

Speaking with Face the Nation’s Margaret Brennan, Gottlieb discussed the rules and risks early in the pandemic, explaining that the Trump administration shifted its focus to the impact lockdowns and rules would have on the economy and children.

“My view is that they were sold on the idea that you weren’t going to be able to really affect the spread and that anything you did was just going to have so many repercussions in terms of impact on children who might not be in school. Impact on the economy, that the costs were worse than the disease,” he said, explaining that schools were a “perfect example of the lack of effective policymaking.”

“So the single reason why most schools remained shut was because the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) was telling them they had to keep kids six feet apart,” he said. “If- if CDC has said you can only- you have to keep kids three feet apart, then a lot of schools would have been able open.”

“And in fact, when the Biden administration wanted to open schools in the spring, this past spring, they got the CDC to change that guidance from six feet to three feet,” Gottlieb continued, admitting the original guidance was “arbitrary” and had unknown origins.

Swiss Police Threaten to Stop Enforcing COVID-19 Rules

Police in Switzerland have threatened to stop enforcing COVID-19 rules because the measures are disproportionately undermining the fundamental rights of citizens. A group representing police officers wrote a letter to the Swiss Federation of Police Officers warning of potential insubordination within the force over the enforcement of draconian laws. The Conference of Cantonal Police Commanders threatened the officers with sanctions if they refused to enforce the measures. -GEG

Police in Switzerland have threatened to stop enforcing COVID-19 rules over fears that the measures are disproportionately undermining the fundamental rights of citizens.

A group representing police officers in the Alpine country wrote a letter to the Swiss Federation of Police Officers (FSFP) warning of potential insubordination within the force over the enforcement of draconian laws.

“If the measures were to conflict with the general opinion of the population, disproportionately limiting their fundamental rights, many police officers would no longer be willing to apply them,” the group wrote in the letter.

While the letter was received favorably by lockdown skeptics, the FSFP attempted to dismiss it by claiming it only represented a small number of police officers.

Adrian Gaugler of the Conference of Cantonal Police Commanders went further, threatening the officers with sanctions if they refused to enforce the measures.

“An officer who refuses to enforce the law can be punished,” said Gaugler.

Canada: Man Says his Court Case Caused Alberta to Remove COVID Restrictions – But Did It?

Canada: Alberta has abandoned some of its harsh Covid-19 policies, claiming the action is in response to the province having reached a high rate of vaccination. Patrick King, however, says his court case is responsible. He fought a $1,200 ticket for violating Covid restrictions and subpoenaed Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Deena Hinshaw, asking her to provide evidence that there really is a SARS-CoV-2 virus. She failed to produce evidence of the virus and responded that it was not relevant to his case. Ezra Levant and Rebel Media have reluctantly challenged King’s conclusions by pointing out that Alberta had already relaxed  Covid restrictions before his trial, and that anyone following his legal strategies may be in for big trouble. They love King’s passion but not his knowledge of the law. -GEG

Summary by JW Williams
.
Alberta, Canada: Patrick King, a Canadian father and protester, told his story in a viral video claiming to have ended masking, shots and quarantine after he represented himself in court in a case over a $1,200 fine for breaking Covid restrictions. As part of his defense, he asked for proof of the SARS-CoV-2 Covid virus as it is the justification for lockdowns, quarantines, masks, contact tracing, vaccines and more. The prosecution and medical authorities failed to supply physical proof of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It has never been isolated, and therefore cannot be proven to exist. The judge allowed King to to subpoena Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) Deena Hinshaw. King showed her response that read:
.
The CMOH Has No Material Evidence
.
Mr. King has no material evidence showing that the evidence sought from the CMOH is likely to be material to the Provincial Court proceeding contrary to ss. 698 and 699 of the Criminal Code. As such, the Justice of the Peace did not have jurisdiction to issue the subpoena, and it should be quashed on this basis.”
.
King claimed victory because evidence of the virus was not produced. He exhorted others to challenge the Public Health Act in Provinces and States because the judge will be forced to subpoena the government officials responsible for the policies. He says he has laid a foundation for the thousands of other who also received tickets to follow. He says this can end Covid policies because SARS-CoV-2 has not been isolated, and therefore cannot be proven to exist, so people cannot be forced to do anything in the name of something that cannot be proven to exist.
.
Sheila Gunn Reid, a court reporter, analyzed Patrick King’s court documents for Rebel Media and said that Hinshaw’s statement that “CMOH Has No Material Evidence” means that evidence was not provided because it was not relevant to the case (material = relevant), rather than there is no SARS-CoV-2 virus. Reporter Reid said that masking and the end of the lockdown was on July 1, prior to King’s case, and it is not correct to give him credit for stopping the lockdown. She said that the Justice of the Peace did not have jurisdiction to issue the subpoena and it should be squashed. King wanted CMOH Hinshaw to produce evidence of isolation of the virus. The CMOH response said that the court case was about the enforcement of the law and the ticket that was issued, not the rationale behind the law, contending that it was not material/ relevant to the case. King tried to raise a constitutional issue, but it should have been done sooner to give notice to the court, so they were not compelled to produce that evidence related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
.
According to critic Ezra Levant, the owner of Rebel Media and a former attorney, the title of the viral video featuring King, ‘Freedom Fighter Court VICTORY! Ends Masking, Shots, Quarantine in Alberta!’ is incorrect. Levant said that while there have been changes in Alberta’s Covid restrictions, there is no court ruling in Alberta that struck down masking, testing, quarantine in that province or anywhere else in Canada.
.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media reported in late July that Alberta is softening certain Covid restrictions due to a high rate of Covid vaccination, claiming that 75% of eligible Albertans have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine and 64% are fully immunized.
.
The changes in the Covid restrictions include: no isolation after exposure, unless the individual has Covid-19 symptoms, no isolation following an asymptomaric positive COVID-19 test, isolation hotels and quarantine support will no longer be available, contact tracers will no longer notify close contacts of exposure but will continue to investigate cases in high-risk setting like acute and continuing care facilities, asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended but tests will be available to individuals who are symptomatic, and province-mandated masking orders will be lifted but may be required in some acute care or continuing care settings.
.
It is unknown if King’s case may have influenced Alberta to remove some Covid restrictions. Alberta is now treating Covid as mild flu, instead of a made-up disease that cannot be proven to exist because the SARS-CoV-2 virus has yet to be isolated and proven to exist. An internet commenter/critic wrote that the Province has chosen to IMAGINE that a disease exists though the causal agent does not, and mitigates the imaginary disease to a “mild flu”. If the virus doesn’t exist, Covid doesn’t exist. There should be a follow-up case to clarify that. A judicial declaration that there is no Sars-CoV-2 and thus no Covid disease whatsoever needs to be issued.

UK: Member of Parliament Accuses Govt. of Using Fear to Impose Harmful Covid Restrictions

UK: Member of Parliament Graham Brady criticized his government’s use of fear to impose severe lockdowns, closing businesses, and stay-at-home orders. He compared people’s dependence on a tyrannical government to Stockholm Syndrome and said the greater the control to which people are subjected, the more they develop dependence. While Brady recommended Covid vaccines, which we have reported are dangerous, he said the most important thing the government could do to reduce fear is to stop inflating the number of Covid cases and hospitalizations begin publishing the true numbers of patients admitted for Covid compared to those admitted for ailments other than Covid. -GEG

From the DailyMail:

On August 23, 1973, an attempted bank raid at Stockholm’s Norrmalmstorg Square went badly wrong.

Four hostages were taken and the drama ended only five days later when tear gas forced the robbers to surrender.

The hold-up would doubtless have been forgotten but for the odd reaction of the hostages, who formed a close bond with their jailers.

And it was the events of those few days that gave their name to something now commonly described as Stockholm Syndrome.

This phenomenon has often been identified in the half-century since Norrmalmstorg Square.

But it has been remarkable to see it exhibited by whole swathes of the British public over the past year.

After 16 months of being told by the state when we could leave our homes, whether we could see our families, with whom we were allowed to have sex, or what kinds of sports we were permitted to play, many of us are eager to regain the human dignity that comes with the exercise of our own free will.

Others react differently.

When told that their double vaccination gives them substantial protection from serious illness, people worry that the jabs might work today, but what about next month or next year?

What if a new variant comes along that can evade the vaccines altogether?

For many months the evidence has shown that the most likely places to catch Covid are care homes, hospitals and private homes, but opinion polls show a widespread fantasy that the real dangers are from international travel, pubs and restaurants.

The Government’s least rational restrictions have played up to these unfounded prejudices, of course.

The closure of Covid-secure restaurants last autumn came shortly after the Sage advisers published advice that doing so would be unlikely to make much difference.

Similarly, making people jump through endless hoops and take multiple expensive tests if they want to fly to a safe and sunny country for a week or two by the sea must make those who don’t study the evidence believe that going to Majorca is a pretty risky business.

The trouble with Stockholm Syndrome is that the greater the control to which people are subjected, the greater the dependence people develop.

The line between coercion and care becomes blurred, the hostage starts to see the man with the AK-47 who holds him in a cell not as a jailer but as a protector.

For 16 months, the British population has been subject not just to minute control but to a constantly changing menu of restrictions.

Pelosi Orders Capitol Police to Arrest Staff and Visitors who do not Wear Masks

Speaker-of-the House Nancy Pelosi ordered Capitol Police to arrest staff and visitors who fail to comply with her new mask mandate on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday. The Capitol’s Attending Physician, Brian Monahan, is now advising Congressional members and staff to wear a “well-fitted” super mask while inside. The new rule applies to vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. This directive follows her previous order on vaccinations for all on Capitol Hill.

Republican Representative Thomas Massie tweeted: “Might as well come into my office and arrest my entire staff. We are not wearing masks. I support the Capitol Hill Police, but the Chief of Police made a mistake here. The physician and the chief of police don’t have this authority.” Representative Steve Scalise sent this tweet: “To be clear: Pelosi is directing police to ARREST vaccinated people who aren’t wearing masks. This isn’t about science—it’s about power and control.” -GEG

Speaker-of-the-House Nancy Pelosi ordered Capitol Police to arrest staff and visitors who fail to comply with her new mask mandate on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday.

For lawmakers, Pelosi advised not arresting but “reporting Members to SAA for their failure to comply.”

“I cannot comply with this tyrannical order,” Rep. Cammack said. “This is the people’s house, not Nancy Pelosi’s house.”

Australia: Top COVID Health Officer Advises ‘Don’t Have a Conversation with Others’

Dr. Kerry Chant, the chief health officer of New South Wales (NSW) gave a press conference telling Australians that they shouldn’t “engage in conversation with each other,” even if they’re wearing masks, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID after NSW was locked down again for just a handful of new cases. Australian MP Frank Pangallo said that activities by unvaccinated people “will need to be controlled and restricted” and called on the Australian government to make mandatory for access to “hospitality venues, public places, workplaces, and for travel. In other words, those who refuse to take the vaccine should remain under de facto lockdown indefinitely. Despite only 13% of the Australian population having been vaccinated so far, Pangallo said ‘vaxports’ were a necessity in order “to prevent the entire country going into lockdown.” –GEG

The chief health officer of New South Wales gave a press conference telling Australians that they shouldn’t “engage in conversation with each other,” even if they’re wearing masks, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID.

Yes, really.

Dr. Kerry Chant made the remarks in response to people in NSW being ordered to comply with yet another lockdown triggered by just a handful of new cases, which included a man in Cootamundra who visited a Woolworths supermarket, Pizza Hut restaurant, petrol station and Officeworks store.

“Whilst it’s human nature to engage in conversation with others, to be friendly, unfortunately this is not the time to do that,” said Chant.

“So even if you run into your next door neighbor in the shopping center…don’t start up a conversation, now is the time for minimizing your interactions with others, even if you’ve got a mask, do not think that affords total protection, we wanna be absolutely sure that as we go about our daily lives we do not come into contact with anyone else that would pose a risk,” she added.

Building Security Guard Says that Michigan Governor Whitmer Has Not Been in Her Office for 2-3 Years

Michigan: Video shows a security guard at Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s office in Lansing tell citizens who were trying to deliver thousands of affidavits demanding a forensic audit of the November 2020 election ballots that she “hasn’t been here for two or three years.” Whitmer has shown over and over again that she has one set of standards for the citizens of Michigan and another for herself; for example, she traveled to Florida in March 2021, despite cautioning Michigan residents against traveling out of state, and then she lied about it. Whitmer has also been criticized for lockdowns and severe restrictions that have cost many people their livelihoods, but she continues to collect her paycheck without even checking into her official office.

Excerpt:

On Thursday, John Clore of Us Against Media, Michigan’s only conservative news outlet,  joined several Michigan residents to deliver copies of thousands of affidavits demanding a forensic audit of the November 2020 election to Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s office in Lansing, MI. When they arrived at the George W. Romney building, they were stunned to discover that Gretchen Whitmer, who’s proved over and over again that she’s above playing by the same rules sets for everyone else in Michigan, hasn’t been to her office in the past 2-3 years!

Yep…you heard it right. Even before the Wuhan pandemic hit the state of Michigan, the iron-fisted Democrat Governor wasn’t coming into the official governor’s office in Lansing.

Gretchen Whitmer either has the worst work ethic of any governor in America, or she simply believes she’s above working in the office space where every governor before her worked.

One-Third of Small Businesses in Illinois Have Closed Due to the Pandemic


Illinois: An analysis from the nonpartisan Illinois Policy Institute found that 35% of small businesses, the main job providers in the state, are now closed compared to before the pandemic. Covid restrictions tended to be tighter population-dense areas. The analysis showed 50% of small businesses in the food services and accommodations industry and 51% in the leisure and hospitality industry have closed. Businesses that are still standing fear tax increases.

Businesses of all sizes have struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it has been especially difficult for smaller businesses.

Using data from the Opportunity Insights Economic Tracker, a project of Harvard University, an analysis from the nonpartisan Illinois Policy Institute found that 35% of small businesses in Illinois are closed now compared to before the pandemic.

Bryce Hill, a senior research analyst with the think tank, said there are two main reasons for the closures.

“No. 1, population-dense areas have been more drastically affected by COVID-19, and there are also going to be economic realities of mitigation measures that were put into place in Illinois that may have been tighter than in some other areas,” Hill said.

The analysis also showed 50% of small businesses in the food services and accommodations industry and 51% in the leisure and hospitality industry have closed. These were the most affected sectors in Illinois.

Over 38% of small businesses in the educational and health services industry are still closed, the sixth most in the nation.

Canada Is Sending COVID-Positive Travelers to ‘Internment’ Facilities


Canadians returning to their country must be tested before and after takeoff, and, if their test results come back positive, they will be required to immediately quarantine in designated government facilities. The government is locking people up without trial. According to the Canadian government, anyone who attempts to avoid detention in a government internment facility could face a million-dollar fine and three years in prison. A member of parliament warned that it can take hours to book these government sanctioned hotels, and that food and water are not always available. The doors in some of the internment facilities don’t lock, and detainees have no way to protect themselves while they sleep, which has led to sexual assault. At the same moment that the government is clamping down on its own citizens, the country will welcome 400,000 new immigrants over the next eight months who will be exempt from quarantine.

Back in November, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau admitted the Covid policies are not about stopping the coronavirus and saving lives, but are an opportunity to permanently change Western civilization. He said, “This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actual address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”
