Matthew Vadum contributor to Canada Free Press warns about the Biden/Harris push for a vaccine passport: This data-driven authoritarianism, if it comes to pass, will wash away what remains of the rule of law and the Constitution, and annihilate the American way of life. . . . America’s placeholder president, the Communist Chinese ventriloquist’s dummy who fantasizes about becoming the new Franklin Delano Roosevelt, wants these vaccination passports badly.

Matthew Boose contributor to Canada Free Press raises the alarm on COVID clingers: If we do not reclaim the world we had, we will have a new form of life dictated to us by social engineers.

Matthew Boose contributor to American Greatness raises the alarm on COVID clingers: The very phrase “new normal” carries an admission that the virus was a pretext for social engineering all along.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Do states have a compelling interest to protect personal rights when interacting with corporations that control public life? That’s the question when it comes to both Big Tech monopolies and vaccine passports.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) complains that Biden’s $2.2 trillion stimulus plan is too small: You know, if we could wave a magic wand and progressives in the House were able to name any number and get it through, which obviously isn`t the case, but if we`re looking at ideals and what we think is the actual investment that can create tens of millions of good union jobs in this country, that can shore up our health care, our infrastructure, our housing, and doing it in a way that draws down our carbon emissions to help us get in line with IPCC standards, we’re talking about realistically $10 trillion over ten years.

Julie Contreras, a Waukegan Illinois resident activist fighting against a school board’s efforts to rename a school: From the time Barack Obama became President until 2017 when he left, he today is still the highest ranking president with deportations in our nation. If you’re removing the name of Thomas Jefferson – one oppressor – the name of Obama is another oppressor and our families do not want to see that name,” Contreras said. If you’re removing the name of Thomas Jefferson – one oppressor – the name of Obama is another oppressor and our families do not want to see that name

David Plouffe Barack Obama’s campaign manager tweeted on June 13,2016: It’s not enough to simply beat Trump. He must be destroyed thoroughly. His kind must not rise again.


ADI: Arizona Senate Selects Maricopa County 2020 Election Audit Team
The Senate has contracted with Wake Technology Services, Inc. CyFIR, LLC, Digital Discovery, and Cyber Ninjas, Inc. to conduct the audit. Cyber Ninjas, whose principals have been supporters of the #stopthesteal movement and critics of the 2020 General election count in various states, will lead the team. […] CyFIR is a digital security and forensics company specializing in enterprise incident response, computer forensics, and expert witness support to litigation. It was CyFir’s founder, Ben Cotton, who discovered the Office of Personnel Management breach in 2015. CyFIR was also instrumental in the largest individual bank fraud investigation in the history of the IMF. The team includes the Wake Technology Services group. Members of that group performed hand count audits and Fulton County, Pennsylvania and in New Mexico as part of the 2020 general election cycle. The Senate’s press release notes that Wake’s team members have also been involved with election fraud investigations dating to a 1994 case including one in which a team member worked closely with the FBI. The auditors are tasked with validating “every area of the voting process to ensure the integrity of the vote,” according to the press release. […] The scope of work will include, but is not limited to, . . .

Hoft: Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to Arizona Senate – You Cannot Do Your Audit Here at the Tabulation Center – Where Do You Want the Ballots Delivered?
Maricopa County Board of Supervisors held an emergency meeting yesterday in Arizona. This was in response to Wednesday’s release from Arizona’s Senate announcing they put together the team of auditors to perform the audit of the Maricopa County 2020 Presidential results. Maricopa County is where Phoenix is located and it holds about two-thirds of the voting population in Arizona: . . . At yesterday’s meeting, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors continued to do all it could to not make it easy for the Senate to perform its audit. The Supervisors have been doing this for months.

Valentine: Election Fraud Hotspots – 10% of the Data are 70% of the Fraud
The more our team looked at the 2020 election fraud from publicly available records, the more it appeared to have similar characteristics to property casualty insurance fraud. Beginning in November, like many citizens, we witnessed election fraud possibilities any sentient person would investigate. Having backgrounds in fraud detection, particularly in the property casualty insurance business, Medicaid fraud, and cyber fraud, gave us a curiosity that never dissipated. Our interest is 100% in data analysis. That means looking at the actual votes, the addresses, the information about ballots reported to Secretaries of State. While there are all kinds of other fraud, the best way to light it up is with data analysis. Not just the statistical stuff with the graphs and Greek symbols, but old fashioned rows and columns. Nothing illegal, just the same public data Google uses to profile someone for new running shoes. If Jesse Morgan did drive a tractor trailer truck with 100,000 ballots from New York to Pennsylvania, how can we find out? Chris Wray and our hardy pals at the FBI may not want to open that truck’s back door, but we do – with database analysis. […] Fraud data is like the world’s messiest crime scene.

Bliss: Iowa Democrat Rita Hart Withdraws Challenge in Iowa House Race
This would have posed an uphill battle, as Democrats have started to back away from the partisan efforts. Breitbart News reported earlier this week, as many as nine Democrats have come forward to defect. Moderates would have had to go on the record to vote for or against the efforts if Hart’s attempt were to pass the Committee.

JANUARY 6, 2021

Kelly: When Will Big Tech Face a Reckoning for January 6?
One entity, however, appears to be off the hook so far: Big Tech. Social media platforms were instrumental in communicating and organizing the so-called “insurrection” to destroy our democracy, as it’s hyperbolically described by the Left and plenty of Republicans. If random Americans can be held legally responsible for others who commit crimes, then why are Silicon Valley tycoons with immense power and loads of money not similarly liable? […] . . . if January 6 was indeed a domestic terrorist attack, then Big Tech, not Donald Trump, acted as the rented truck or the doomed airliner. They “aided and abetted” more violence and destruction than a handful of Oath Keepers.

AZ Free News: Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act Heads To Governor’s Desk
House Bill 2111, dubbed the Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act, is headed to Governor Doug Ducey’s desk. The Arizona Senate passed the bill in 17-13 bipartisan vote on Tuesday. The Act, sponsored by Representative Leo Biasiucci (R-5), prohibits state, county, and local governments from using resources to implement or enforce federal actions that are inconsistent with Arizona law regarding the regulation of firearms.

Mack: Record 4.7M FBI Gun Background Checks in March
Background checks in March were up 36% from February, as around 4.7 million were initiated, FBI data shows, according to CNN. The number of checks do not equal the number of guns purchased, but they do tend to correlate with the volume of sales. Gun sales have historically trended higher as safety fears gripped America or when citizens anticipated upcoming gun control measures.

Kassam & Winters: REVEALED: China’s State Propaganda Group Boasts Control Over Western Think Tanks, ‘Election Integrity’ Groups, And Even Joe Biden’s National Security Team
The Chinese Communist Party’s Cyberspace Administration of China has boasted of one of the most critical connections between the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the groups and individuals campaigning to stop President Trump and his “America First” agenda, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal. New, bombshell admissions over China’s influence in both the United States and Europe link organizations such as the Berggruen Institute with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Berggruen Institute first rose to national attention after co-founding the “Transition Integrity Project” which advised on how Joe Biden could seize power on the back of an ostensible Trump victory. The news lends further credibility to election-tampering theories especially concerning Chinese Communist Party influence.

Goodenough: Administration Now Looking at a ‘Mutual Return to Compliance’ With JCPOA Instead of Iran Complying First
The Biden administration is “ready to pursue a return to compliance with” the U.S. commitments under the Iran nuclear deal – “consistent with Iran also doing the same.” The U.S. is now discussing with its partners in the accord “about the best way to achieve this, including through a series of initial mutual steps,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Thursday. The comments mark the latest of what appears to be a slow shift away from clear statements months ago declaring that Iran would have to return to full compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) before the U.S. does.

Vadum: Vaccination Passports: The Cornerstone of a Totalitarian State
Vaccination passports, like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want everyone to be forced to carry, are profoundly un-American. […] “The passports are expected to be free and available through applications for smartphones, which could display a scannable code similar to an airline boarding pass,” the Jeff Bezos mouthpiece reports. “Americans without smartphone access should be able to print out the passports, developers have said.” Five administration sources supposedly told the “Democracy dies in darkness” fabulists that COVID Czar Jeff Zients is working with unidentified private entities to institute the program. A reported 30 international airlines are said to be demanding vaccine passports. […] “China’s social credit system is about power and conformity,” U.S. Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.) explains in a Fox News op-ed. “It’s an attempt to shape citizens into the CCP’s ideal subject: don’t ask questions, disobey or think for yourself.” It also resembles the Left’s “cancel culture” in the United States in that they both share the goal of “ensuring conformity to one ideology.”

Dhillon: Vaccine Passports Are A Serious Threat To American Civil Liberties
With the advent of the deceptively named “vaccine passport” concept, coronavirus vaccines have quickly turned from savior hailed by an American populace desperate for a return to some semblance of normalcy into a cudgel with which to beat the vaccine heterodox into submission. Add the relentless desire for Big Tech to collect all data it can suck into a rapacious corporate maw to be digested into more profits and more power over our lives, and you have a perfect storm of tyranny. […] We have a constitutionally implied fundamental right to privacy; various guarantees in the Bill of Rights “have penumbras, formed by emanations from those guarantees that help give them life and substance…creat[ing] “zones of privacy.” Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479, 484 (1965). The right to privacy encompasses everything from what we do in the privacy of our own bedrooms, to how we educate our children, and to what we choose to insert into our bodies. The right to privacy also incorporates a right to be left alone, a concept dating as far back as an 1890 Harvard Law Review Article by Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis, in which they noted that our laws are universal and eternal, “grow[ing] to meet the new demands of society.” As time passed, “[g]radually the scope of [] legal rights broadened; and now the right to life has come to mean the right to enjoy life, — the right to be let alone; the right to liberty secures the exercise of extensive civil privileges…” Being forced to carry sensitive personal health information on apps is highly problematic from a privacy standpoint.

Binder: Biden’s DHS Rewarding Border Crossers with One-Year Permits to Live in U.S.
President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is rewarding border crossers with one-year permits to live in the United States, a new report confirms. […] Many of the border crossers, as detailed by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Todd Bensman, are being rewarded one-year permits to live in the U.S. in a process known as “parole.” The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can eventually extend these permits.

Miller: Connecticut School Shows Cartoon of Man With Erection Standing Over ‘Sad’ Girl — to SECOND GRADERS (Watch)
I can’t believe it but I have to admit it. When I first saw this report I was mildly shocked. As we well know, given the level of depravity and steadily-declining immoral conduct on regular display by the Democrat Party and its various supported groups and causes, being shocked by the left is steadily becoming more and more unlikely. We’ve all said it, a proverbial million times: “Nothing these people do shocks me, anymore.” Yeah, well, this did — if only mildly. Worse, it angered the hell out of me. […] Conservative Newsmax TV host Carl Higbie was one of the parents of students shown the video who were outraged.

Boose: Against the COVID Clingers
Let’s not kid ourselves. For some, the coronavirus has been a joyride. Topping the list of COVID clingers is Biden. Where would he be without the pandemic? Not in the White House, that’s for certain. Without COVID, Biden would still be tottering around one of his mansions in Delaware. COVID-19 has also been a blessing to the “expert” class and their media mouthpieces who have been elevated to god-like status, the newly contrived “essential” worker classes, and our ghastly health bureaucracy, praised ad nauseam for its “heroism” while preventing families from seeing loved ones and limiting transparency. For countless unremarkable people, being a COVID hall monitor has provided a sense of superiority and importance. They will miss . . . The COVID clingers are trying to squeeze everything they can out of this “crisis” before the momentum fades. We are, by a sleight of hand, being nudged to accept a “new normal” that we never asked for under the guise of returning to the normal that we once had. […] The very phrase “new normal” carries an admission that the virus was a pretext for social engineering all along.

Newsmax: Pfizer Shot Remains More Than 91% Effective After Six Months
Follow-up data from a final-stage trial of 46,307 people showed the vaccine was 91.3% effective in preventing symptomatic cases starting one week after the second dose through as long as six months. In the U.S. alone, the efficacy rate was 92.6%, according to a report Thursday by Pfizer and its partner BioNTech SE. At the same time, the companies provided some of the first data on how their vaccine might handle the immune-evading B.1.351 variant that arose in South Africa. Nine of 800 trial participants in that country got sick with Covid, including six infected with B.1.351. However, all were in the placebo group, suggesting the shot retains efficacy against the variant.

Winters: Chinese Communist Party Shuts Down, Confiscates All Property From Church.
The Chinese Communist Party shut down and seized property belonging to a church in China’s Chongqing municipality. The confiscation of all of Mt. Olive Church’s property, even including chairs and books, was carried out by over 30 Chinese Communist Party officials from the local police, state security, and local district administration.
