While perhaps not the most momentous news of the day, possibly the most shocking is the news that a retired French pharmacy professor, Jean-Bernard Fourtillan, was removed from his home to a psychiatric hospital—for questioning the official Covid-19 narrative. This LifeSite News article aptly points out, “The systematic use of psychiatric hospitals in order to silence or punish political opponents became widespread under communism, having started shortly after the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917. The method developed under Stalin and then expanded as opposition to the ‘socialist paradise’ came to be considered a sign of mental illness.” Of course, the 42-year-old French president, Emmanuel Macron, is a massive globalist and an EU proponent, and he was a socialist until 2009.
There was a massive “Jericho” (as in, the city whose walls the Israelites knocked down with God’s help) rally in D.C. It got a lot of play in conservative media. The President flew over it in the Marine One helicopter. Meanwhile, here is a massive thread of the inevitable clashes between some of the president’s supporters, “Proud Boys,” and Antifa. Police have been trying to keep the groups separate, using pepper spray a lot; there may have been a stabbing:
Last night, Sidney Powell made emergency filings in the Supreme Court for Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona; she claims her plaintiffs have standing, “raise constitutional issues and prove massive fraud.” Fingers crossed, but I’m not holding my breath:
Still, the evidence for fraud seems to be overwhelming—so much that I make no effort at all to try to characterize it. Here’s Powell giving a rundown from two days ago:
Bear in mind that this is just one legal team, operating independently of the President’s team, with a view into some of the election problems.
Silicon Valley giant Oracle are the latest to announce a relocation of its headquarters to Texas. They are only the latest of many. I personally know two “high net worth individuals” who have moved from California to Texas within the last seven years. Of course, matters are getting desperate indeed in California, with the homelessness, trash in the streets, brutal lockdowns, and crusading leftism, all in a state with outrageously high property values.
One of the deepest travesties of justice happened when the mainstream media tanked the story of Hunter Biden’s possibly criminal China connections. Only now is the story beginning to be acknowledged—just in time for Kamala Harris to replace Joe Biden. Hunter Biden sent an email to the manager of his Washington, D.C. office building in September 2017 asking her to make keys for his “office mates” Joe Biden and Gongwen Dong, who he said was the “emissary” for the chairman of the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC. Of course, the elder Biden didn’t know anything about Hunter’s business dealings. In other news, Hunter Biden was hit with a subpoena for foreign business records related to Ukrainian gas company Burisma, where the younger Biden was paid absurd amounts of money for, as near as anyone can tell, being closely related to the then-Vice President and “point man” on Ukraine. Well, isn’t that special.
Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) urged Nancy Pelosi not to seat any of the Republicans who signed the amicus brief supporting a lawsuit in objection to the asserted election results. Not clear whether Pelosi can do this, or whether there is much chance of it happening.
One person was arrested for shooting another person when two “heavily armed groups” of protesters in Olympia confronted each other. Pray for peace. We do not need any more of this; we certainly do not need to encourage it. But there are several frightening signs that the country is inching ever closer to secession or civil war or both.
Apparently (if the tweet text is correct; not sure), a priest at a St. Anthony’s Church in New Jersey said the 6 p.m. mass was disrupted by large crowds. Here you can hear the priest cursed by protesters on a smoke-filled street:
Pornhub is blocked by Visa and Mastercard, but you can still pay using cryptocurrencies. Pornhub is coming under severe and much-deserved fire for hosting rape videos, including videos of underage victims. But you can pay for such videos using Bitcoin, so…yay, Bitcoin…?
Mother, father, and two-year-old child were kicked off a United flight when the parents were unable to put a mask on the child. This is shocking by any standards. Why should this two-year-old have to wear a mask at all? I thought small children were generally exempt from having to wear masks. Apparently not.
Some psychiatrists have proposed giving the people we would call “social justice warriors” and “special snowflakes” a clinical diagnosis: the new personality disorder of “Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood” (TIV). Among those people would doubtless be those mortally wounded by the news that J.K. Rowling has received “heartbreaking letters” from people who regret trans surgeries. Apparently, the once reliably liberal Rowling has decided she needs to take a stand in favor of biologically-defined womanhood. For this she has, of course, become an apostate to the social justice left. Another apostate of the same liberal sort would be Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: she introduced a bill to ban biological males from women’s sports. Good luck with that one, Rep. Gabbard.
Sorry for the YouTube link, but…this is a seriously great video introduction to how today’s “capitalist” globalists can be regarded as “neoliberal Leninists” or as old-fashioned fascists…ultimately, as a kind of communist. I’ve thought so for a long time. Our globalist masters, as I said, are of the far left. So what does that mean? Good primer on the basic political concepts:
