Shortly after 20+ thousand National Guardsmen helped install the most popular president in history in the barbwire-topped fenced-in White House, three things occurred regarding the "novel" corona virus: CNN removed its super scary case statistics from its news casts, the World Health Organization lowered the PCR threshold and the Lancet medical journal decided that, wouldn't you know it, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an effective treatment after all, just like thousands of doctors and scientists have been screaming all along in the deaf ears of social media.
I've become accustomed to the incredibly screwed up and corrupt state of the worlds institutions, however the depth of the corruption in this instance is truly amazing. These sons-a-bitches are playing with peoples lives. How many have died because they were put on ventilators or lost their jobs? How many suicides? How many got, and are still getting sick from wearing filthy virus collecting face diapers? How many have been fined and locked up and beaten because they refused to obey the ludicrous "social distancing" and lock-down rules for which there is zero supporting science? And all this for an allegedly new virus that, at best, is only slightly worse than the flu, if it exists at all, and which has apparently never been properly isolated.
If you happened to flip on CNN prior to Inauguration Day, chances are you noticed a COVID-19 tracker chyron that tallied the total cases and death count both globally and in the United States.
Now that Joe Biden is president, that chyron seems to have disappeared from broadcasts.
The WHO's new guidance, which includes lower PCR thresholds, almost guarantees COVID "case" numbers will automatically drop dramatically around the world.
Health experts now say that PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2, the virus associated with the illness COVID-19, is too sensitive and needs to be adjusted to rule out people who have insignificant amounts of the virus in their system.1 The test's threshold is so high that it detects people with the live virus as well as those with a few genetic fragments left over from a past infection that no longer poses a risk. It's like finding a hair in a room after a person left it, says Michael Mina, MD, an epidemiologist at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
As Biden Became President, Medical Journal Quietly Retracted Study That Claimed Hydroxychloroquine Is Ineffective - National File
A leading medical journal has issued a retraction of their endorsement for a study that concluded the anti-viral drug hydroxychloroquine was ineffective against the COVID-19 virus. This retraction appears to validate the claims then-President Trump made about the medication being a frontline drug in the battle in the pandemic.
The Lancet, a respected online medical journal, issued an apology to its readers in an edition last year after the retraction. "We deeply apologize to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused," the publishers of The Lancet said.
I'm not exactly sure what to think about the author as far as their technical knowledge since they promote some stuff i do not necessarily agree with, such as using Tor instead of a VPN. The author is completely correct in that there are risks to be assumed with any VPN, however i believe, and i think the evidence dictates, that the same is true with the Tor network (see here and here for instance). Also the author complains about Firefox's security, yet the Tor browser is a fork of Firefox.
The author also makes some potentially sketchy claims regarding Android, stating that "The best option for privacy and security on Android is to get a Pixel 3 or greater and flash GrapheneOS".
From everything i understand, exactly none of the mainstream phones can be considered privacy or security friendly as long as the baseband firmware shares the same memory as the user-facing OS, nor can they be made to be so. Contrary to the authors advice, i would recommend, a) ditching your mobile if at all possible or, b) considering devices from PinePhone and Purism where the proprietary baseband firmware is isolated from the OS and which have hardware switches to actually (really) power off certain components. The author recommends to avoid these devices, but i'm not sure how strong of an argument they make and the arguments miss many other advantages of such devices.
Commenting in an area i know a bit more about, the author states, "You cannot configure your browser to prevent tracking either. Everyone will configure their browser differently so when you change a bunch of about:config settings such as privacy.resistFingerprinting and pile on browser extensions like Privacy Badger, you're making yourself stand out and are effectively reducing privacy."
That's a very crude statement in my opinion. First of all i personally don't recommend Privacy Badger. Secondly, standing out (appearing unique to a web server) is not a bad thing as long as the browser fingerprint isn't static. Firefox has many preferences other than
which can be leveraged to make it more privacy and security complaint. I maintain two guides if interested.
All that said, the Linux Hardening Guide may indeed be a great guide and i think it's certainly worth a read.
181 Dead in the U.S. During 2 Week Period From Experimental COVID Injections – How Long Will We Continue to Allow Mass Murder by Lethal Injection?
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a U.S. Government funded database that tracks injuries and deaths caused by vaccines.
A 2011 report by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Inc. for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) stated that fewer than one percent of all vaccine adverse events are reported to the government:
Although 25% of ambulatory patients experience an adverse drug event, less than 0.3% of all adverse drug events and 1-13% of serious events are reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Likewise, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported. Low reporting rates preclude or slow the identification of "problem" drugs and vaccines that endanger public health. New surveillance methods for drug and vaccine adverse effects are needed. (Source.)
Currently, data from the two experimental mRNA COVID injections that have been voluntarily reported is available for a two week period from the end of December through January 13, 2021.
The data covers 7,844 cases, including 181 deaths.
The largest amount of deaths occurred in people over the age of 75.
Authorities didn't disclose identifying characteristics of the individual or say whether the vaccine was produced by Moderna or Pfizer.
Dr. Elrai-Price noted that 17% of the severely ill patients who are currently hospitalized are patients who received a first dose of the vaccine before their hospitalization.
The data show that to date, 4,500 people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus after having received the first vaccine dose, of whom 375 have been hospitalized due to the disease.
A German study involving over 25,000 children reveals that major negative impacts on the physical, psychological, and behavioral health of children may be far more widespread than reported in the media and by government officials -- affecting approximately 68% and contributing to 24 distinct health complaints, according to parent submitted observations.
Although according to the US federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) 181 deaths have been recorded possibly related to recent COVID vaccinations, and a CDC registry reports that, as of the end of December, experimental COVID vaccinations have so far caused over 7,844, adverse reactions, some scientists are warning that far worse effects of the Warp Speed vaccines are yet to come.
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) promised months ago that the state's COVID-19 policy decisions would be driven by transparent data that would be shared with the public.
Now, his administration is refusing to disclose key information used to determine when lockdown orders are implemented or rescinded - and has denied a public records request filed with the California Health and Human Services (CHHS) Agency on May 28 by the Center for American Liberty (CAL) seeking both the data and science behind the state's lockdown decisions, according to Fox News.
As an interesting coincidence, the first case of the novel coronavirus arrived in the U.S. on the same day the House walked articles of impeachment to the Senate. The next impeachment was based on Trump's supposed calls for violence at a pre-planned Capitol riot just before Congress was to certify (or not) the Electoral College vote, the riot blamed on a speech he gave after the rioting already started.
In politics, there are no coincidences, and the recent rule changes for tallying COVID case are no exception. What happened after Orange Man went from bad to gone?
The World Health Organization, on Biden's inauguration day, released a notice that the COVID PCR test was overly sensitive based on its cycle threshold. A positive result, rather than simply being added to the case counts broadcast constantly by Fox News and MSNBC, must consider other factors such as test specifics, symptoms, and patient history, as would be done for most other laboratory tests in medicine.
Lowering the cycle threshold means fewer cases going forward, not due to anything Trump or Biden did or did not do but simply because of a new way of counting cases. Interestingly this notice was created on Jan. 13, but not released until Jan. 20, Biden's inauguration day. What a coincidence!
Recently, DuRae and his father returned to Toronto from Jamaica, landing at Pearson International Airport. Because they had not been tested for COVID-19 in Jamaica prior to boarding their flight, and because they declined to take the test at Pearson, they were promptly escorted onto a bus and then shuttled off to the nearby Radisson Hotel on Dixon Road. But this isn't a de rigueur Radisson anymore. In fact. DuRae says the facility now resembles a prison moreso than a hotel.
DuRae notes they were brought to a temporary entrance on the south side of the hotel and then told to fill out various paperwork. DuRae says he noticed several people in full hazmat suits. Eventually, DuRae and his dad were frog-marched to their room. They were ordered not to leave the room and told they weren't allowed to buy their own food. Rather, they would have to eat whatever was provided to them by the Red Cross.[...]
A phone call to the front desk revealed that the hotel is now being operated by the federal government as a quarantine facility and is closed to the general public.
When someone doles out a clear injustice, like stealing your stuff, breaking into your car, there is some finality. You get the window fixed. You get the stuff back or not. It ends.
This 2020 election fraud thing is a bit different.
Sure, it runs against that innate sense of justice. You still believe what you saw on Election Night with swing states — only swing states — stopping ballot-counting as Trump was surging.
There's that Atlanta video with the ballots under the desk, everyone sent home with a water main break proven to be fake.
There are those math geeks who show the possibility of event combinations that favored Biden happening were one in a bazillion. Just too many zeroes to comprehend, but you know it is way worse odds than you winning the lottery three times in a row.
You cannot unsee that Joe Biden was in mental decay that had it been Trump, the press would have been demanding cognitive tests daily.
What's really different about the 2020 election fraud is that it has such profound ramifications. It is not ending — the fraud is initiating the destruction of your worldview: of your faith and patriotism. It doesn't have an endpoint.
There is a suffocating feeling of dread in the air — a palpable fear among many Americans that freedom is on its way out. I truly get that. State and corporate authoritarianism has taken over. Little fascists patrol the public square looking for dissent to whatever contrived politically correct nonsense the cultural Marxists conjure up next. Members of Congress malign those who don't submit to the left's delusions as Hitler clones reborn, while the news media and tech behemoths goose-step right behind our Big Government overlords, finding new ways to demonize ordinary Americans who want nothing more than just to be left alone.
Repeatedly, one needs to ask: how is it possible that such a vile and discredited system as communism continues to gain traction among so many people?
Like others before me, I am astonished at the prescience of W. Cleon Skousen, author of The Naked Communist, who, in 1958, explained "how many well-meaning citizens have become involved in pushing forward the Communist program without realizing it. They became converted to Communist objectives because they accepted superficial Communist slogans." Skousen succinctly explained 45 communist goals, and, sadly, Americans have either been bludgeoned into accepting far too many of them or have naïvely accepted them without realizing their ultimate consequences.
The increased censorship of people's views expressed on social media by Big Tech companies has been part of an orchestrated attack on the First Amendment, Patrick Wood, director and founder of Citizens for Free Speech, told The Epoch Times.
Wood believes that there is an agenda behind the censorship. It would be almost statistically impossible to attack simultaneously all five elements of the First Amendment: freedom of religion, free speech, freedom of the press, the right to assemble, and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, Wood said in an interview for Epoch Times' "Crossroads."
All five of those "have been shattered to pieces in the last year and the attack had started actually before that probably five [or] six years ago," Wood said, adding, "Free speech is hanging by a thread and the First Amendment is hanging by a thread."
12bytes says: It's a fact - i just tested it. Doing a 'whois' lookup of antifa.com doesn't seem to produce anything interesting.
Resistance, evidently, is futile. The new authority has already begun to implement its own rules of the game, imposing a new "normality" and erasing any "red lines". Democracy in the traditional understanding of this term has publicly ceased to be a political reality in the United States.
The U.S. military is removing any "potentially offensive" unit emblems, as well as its motto.
U.S. citizens are giving away the identities of their loved ones, because they are Trump supporters or took part in the Capitol storming.
Now we see only the beginning of the creation of a new type of dictatorship. Further fierce witch-hunts hidden behind claims of fighting against oppression and hate are to be expected. The Republican Party has all but capitulated to the Democrats and the new Presidential administration. Big Tech has also gained unprecedented power, resulting in a previously unthinkable censorship and the total control of public opinion. In spite of the fact that the mainstream propaganda engine is heavy and corrupt, the huge and direct support it is getting from Big Tech and government allows it to dominate the media space, especially when alternative sources of information can be simply cut off.
Amid a major split between Americans after the presidential elections, the main theme of the inauguration of Joe Biden will be "United America", which should reflect his commitment to unify the country.
Meanwhile in the current political conditions any real consolidation of national unity can only be achieved if a significant external threat appears. Thus, the United States desperately needs an enemy. Customarily this would remain China and Russia and indeed this is unlikely to change – they need to be made to appear as ever worsening adversaries.
as William Blum noted, (4) the assassinations by the CIA of more than 50 national leaders and 100 lesser targets spanning at least 50 years and continuing in uninterrupted form through twelve US Presidents, are mere "aberrations" that don't reflect "the real American character". Reading from the same script, the US military casually described all the circumstances and events at its worldwide network of US torture prisons over twelve decades as "aberrations".
It is worth re-reading the above quote telling us the 150 or more murders "do not represent the real American character", the quote forming a perfect introduction to the Propaganda Mask and the Utopia Syndrome. The assassinations of all these foreign leaders are not denied; instead they are described as inconsistent with the American utopian ideal, and it is the ideal rather than the act against which America judges itself, the fictitious utopian ideal providing the real measure of American moral supremacy. This pathological reasoning is a stunning tribute to the efficacy of the propaganda methods of Lippman and Bernays, who almost single-handedly turned Americans into raving lunatic war-mongers during both World Wars. (5) It is from precisely this propaganda that Americans today can commit multiple horrendous atrocities, violate every measure of human rights, yet claim the high moral ground and see no inconsistency or conflict. The propagandised utopian ideal of creating peace and stability in the world will supersede America's actions of creating only war and instability. The propagandised ideal of fostering and protecting democracy will overwhelm and mask the reality that the US has never anywhere installed a democracy, has never supported democracy, and has instead almost exclusively installed and supported brutal Right-Wing dictatorships. This patently illogical logic applies across the entire spectrum of US behavior.
As caravans build up in Honduras, migrants are increasing at a "concerning rate" at the United States southern border, according to Matthew Hudak, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) chief patrol agent of the Laredo sector in Texas.
Operation Dark Winter, the code name for a U.S. bio-terrorist attack simulation carried out in 2001. The operation, designed by health professionals from the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies—now known as the Center for Health Security—and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), intended to gauge the government's response to a mock smallpox outbreak linked to an unknown terrorist entity.

Perhaps the strangest thing about America's "forever wars" is how little obvious impact they've had here. A country – an imperial power, in fact, that liked to think of itself as the planet's last or "lone" superpower – goes to war for so long (and with so little evident result) that even "the longest war" no longer fits as a title. After 19 1/4 years, Afghanistan, where it all began, has truly become a forever war. If you're living in that country, where the violence is never-ending, that's undoubtedly a key part of your everyday reality. Living here, however, you can forget that such wars are even still underway.
Section three of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, ratified in 1868, three years after the end of the Civil War, states that anyone guilty of "insurrection or rebellion" against the United States shall not be eligible to hold elective office in the United States.
It allows for Congress to "remove such disability" with a two-thirds vote of the House and Senate.
Democrats in Congress have accused Trump of inciting the acts of violence that transpired on Jan. 6 as some rioters and protesters decided to unlawfully enter the U.S. Capitol building—despite Trump saying that the protesters should protest "peacefully and patriotically." He repeatedly condemned the violence after the incident. It is unclear who instigated the breach of the Capitol building.
Secret file on Christian Drosten – the German virologist who is responsible for the PCR test 'Covid' protocol that has been producing fake 'positives – fake 'cases' – across the world since January 2020 used to justify global fascism – David Icke
The German virologist Pf. Dr. Christian Drosten is the face of the corona crisis we are going through. In March 2020, the weekly magazine Stern even published an article entitled "The corona virus has made Prof. Christian Drosten the most sought-after man in the Republic" and made him a star. For it was Christian Drosten who, in January 2020, developed the PCR test for corona, which has become the standard method for detecting the Covid-19 coronavirus worldwide. As Director of the Berlin Charité Institute, he is a very influential advisor to the German Federal Government, and has participated as an expert at numerous government press conferences. His evaluation has thus had a decisive influence on important political decisions such as the compulsory wearing of masks, the interruption of regular education or the closure of all cafés, bars and restaurants. He has received numerous awards, including the Bundestverdienstkreuz (Cross of Merit) in 2005 and the first-class Bundestverdienstkreuz in 2020.
This programme will open a 4-part dossier that shows a completely different face of Christian Drosten and sheds light on little-known but far-reaching circumstances.
Clashes, arson & mass arrests as riot police struggle to contain anti-lockdown rage in the Netherlands (VIDEOS) — RT World News
Some 240 people have been arrested as unrest spread to at least 10 municipalities across the Netherlands, with riot police using water cannons, batons, dogs and horses to break up unauthorized anti-lockdown gatherings and riots.

Clashes broke out and arrests were made in three Israeli cities as police moved in to shut down yeshiva religious schools that opened for students despite the coronavirus lockdown. In Jerusalem, water cannons were also deployed.
Woman knocked over & left bleeding after water cannon fires from close range during anti-lockdown protests in Netherlands (VIDEO) — RT World News
A woman who was present at one of the anti-lockdown demonstrations that have rocked the Netherlands was visibly injured after being toppled over by a water cannon, leaving her face bloodied as she staggered away.
We need your support to prevent people from being intimidated or pressured into taking experimental vaccines.
Your health and medical conditions are personal and private and nobody should be permitted to violate that, including an employer, an airline, or a government agency.
Anthony Fauci, the director of the United States government's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told reporters Thursday that he was "knocked out" for about 24 hours after, on Tuesday, taking the second dose of experimental coronavirus vaccine. Fauci has thus joined the large and growing list of people who have suffered serious harm from the injections that he and other government officials have been encouraging Americans to take.
Another Lawsuit Against Merck Alleging Gardasil HPV Vaccine Caused Life-Changing Disability – Collective Evolution
Another lawsuit has been filed against Merck for allegedly causing another life-changing disability. As lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. explains, "Before he got the Gardasil (human papillomavirus) vaccine, our client Michael Colbath was a superlative athlete and scholar. A happy, healthy and active boy. In the months following his first injection, exhaustion and extreme fatigue forced Michael away from the sports and hobbies that had been centerpieces of his life. He had trouble staying awake during the school day. After his second Gardasil injection, Michael developed severe foot pain in both feet, so severe that he needed crutches to attend school. He had trouble waking up in the morning and getting out of bed."
Coronavirus Scandal Breaking in Merkel's Germany. False Positives and the Drosten PCR Test - Global Research
The widely-praised German model of the Angela Merkel regime to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic is now engulfed in a series of potentially devastating scandals going to the very heart of the testing and medical advice being used to declare draconian economic shutdowns and next, de facto mandatory vaccinations. The scandals involve a professor at the heart of Merkel's corona advisory group. The implications go far beyond German borders to the very WHO itself and their global recommendations.
President Joe Biden spoke with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, with the Mexican leader saying the White House would send $4 billion to Central American countries.
Morgan said he believes the administration didn't speak to experts with the Border Patrol about which policies should remain. He cited executive orders ending the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as the "Remain in Mexico" program, as well as one that ended border wall system construction.
"So this was this is something we've been saying was the most dangerous thing that he's been saying all along, that he was going to get rid of on Day One, and that's what he did," the former commissioner said. "That policy [MPP] alone attributed to the absolute reduction of [migrant] families coming up from Central America."
Officials with the Department of Homeland Security didn't immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment.
"It's just frustrating what I'm seeing right now," Morgan said. "To me, it's all politics. It's all about politics. And our country's less safe because of it, and it's just disgusting."

Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (1/24/21).
The Chicago Tribune's tally states that some 156 people have been shot in Chicago between Jan. 1, 2021, through January 21, 2021.
Last weekend, at least 23 people were shot, including six fatally, in the city. In 2020, a tally of Chicago's crime said that 4,100 people were shot while 719 were gunned down.
Overall, nearly 800 murders were recorded last year.
