YouTube to Censor Content Contradicting WHO Guidelines | 17 Aug 2023 | YouTube has introduced a new “medical misinformation policy” that will censor any medical or health-related content that doesn’t align with claims made by the World Health Organization (WHO). YouTube earlier had a “COVID-19 Misinformation Policy” webpage that stated that the platform doesn’t allow any content that “poses a serious risk of egregious harm” and spreads “medical misinformation” contradicting what the WHO or local health authorities (LHA) say about the COVID-19 pandemic. The webpage now redirects to a “medical misinformation policy” page that expands the censorship rule to “specific health conditions and substances” rather than COVID-19 alone. Content that contradicts guidance on treatments, including promoting “specific harmful substances or practices” not approved by authorities or the WHO as safe and effective, also won’t be allowed on the platform. Claims that vaccines cause chronic side effects “outside of rare side effects” recognized by health authorities would be deemed as “vaccine misinformation” by YouTube.

Biden Admin Preparing to Bring Back Full Covid Restrictions, Rollout to Begin Mid-September – Report | 18 Aug 2023 | Whistleblowers from the TSA and Border Patrol have raised the alarm to Inf-wars that the Biden administration is setting the stage for full Covid lockdowns that will begin with incremental restrictions like masking TSA employees in mid-September. The first source, a high-level TSA official confirmed and known to Inf-wars, reached out to Inf-wars and cited a Tuesday meeting in which TSA managers were told new memorandums and policies were being completed that would reimplement masking, starting with TSA and airport employees as early as mid-September. The TSA official also said next week they will receive new guidelines on how the policy will escalate: by mid-October, mask-wearing will be required by pilots, flight staff, passengers, and airport patrons. After hearing from the TSA manager, Inf-wars reached out to our trusted Border Patrol source who is also a manager. This source confirmed the same directives were being given to Border Patrol. They were told it was not a matter of “if” but “when” official Covid numbers will go back up and they expect by mid-October a return to forced-masking policies that the Biden administration previously only reluctantly ended after massive pressure.

Gloomy scientists call for people to start wearing Covid masks again as they sound alarm over new variant BA.6 that has ‘a lot of new mutations’ | 15 Aug 2023 | Experts today sounded the alarm over a fresh Covid wave after detecting a variant that has “a lot of new mutations.” Some UK scientists — known for making gloomy predictions earlier in the pandemic — are so concerned they have advised people to mask up again. The new sub-strain — which doesn’t have an official name but has been dubbed BA.6 — has only been spotted in two countries so far, Denmark and Israel. But it is causing concern among some due to the number of mutations it has on its spike protein, the piece of the virus that vaccines were [allegedly] designed to target.

CIA knows Ukraine’s counteroffensive will fail – Seymour Hersh | 17 Aug 2023 | The CIA warned US Secretary of State Antony Blinken that Ukraine’s ongoing counteroffensive against Russian forces would fail, and that Kiev “will not win the war,” American journalist Seymour Hersh reported on Thursday. Blinken “has figured out that the United States — that is, our ally [the Nazis and child traffickers in] Ukraine — will not win the war” against Russia, Hersh wrote on his Substack blog, quoting an anonymous US intelligence official. “The word was getting to him through the Agency [CIA] that the17 Ukrainian offense was not going to work,” Hersh’s source continued, without specifying when these warnings began to surface. “It was a show by [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky and there were some in the administration who believed his bulls**t.” …Despite knowing that Ukraine’s prospects were grim, CIA Director William Burns reportedly took this opportunity to approach the White House and offer support for Joe Biden’s policy of indefinite military aid for Kiev, with the aim of securing a higher position in the Biden administration.

1.3 Million Tons of Fukushima Nuclear Wastewater Being Dumped Into Pacific Ocean | 15 Aug 2023 | Unbeknownst to most people, Japan is currently in the process of releasing about a million tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. The reason for this stems from what happened 12 years ago, during the Fukushima nuclear disaster. An earthquake and a subsequent tsunami caused a near meltdown of a nuclear power plant in Japan. The situation was a complete mess: the reactors shut down, and the backup generators that fuelled the cooling system lost power, which then led to three nuclear meltdowns and the contamination of a million tons of water. For the past 12 years, Japan has kept this water inside of the plant where they have been slowly treating it, but they have now run out of space. And so, the Japanese government has announced that they will begin to slowly release this treated radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. (Facts Matter – Epoch TV)

South Koreans Rally Against Japanese Plans to Release Treated Nuclear Wastewater Into Sea | 12 Aug 2023 | Anxious about Japan’s impending release of treated nuclear wastewater from the tsunami-damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, hundreds [? Likely a lot more protesters than that] of South Koreans marched in their capital on Saturday. Protesters called for Tokyo to abandon the plans, and expressed anger toward Seoul for endorsing the discharge despite alleged food safety risks. Saturday’s rally was the latest of weeks-long protests since the International Atomic Energy Agency approved the Japanese discharge plans in July, saying that the process would meet international safety standards and pose negligible environmental and health impacts.

Disaster! Biden appears to FORGET the name of devastated Maui as he breaks silence on firestorm which has left at least 101 dead – after being slammed for refusing to comment on tragedy and jetting off on vacation –Joe Biden told the audience they had all witnessed the terrible scenes – ‘the one where you see on television all of the time’ – appearing to forget the name Maui –The death toll on Tuesday rose to 101 – authorities said they have gone through about 32 percent of the search area as of Tuesday morning | 16 Aug 2023 | Joe Biden on Tuesday appeared to forget the name Maui, referring to the island in a speech in Milwaukee as “the one where you see on television all the time.” As the death toll rose to 101 as rescuers combed the rubble in Lahaina, Hawaii, the president told the crowd that there were still fires on the Big Island – also known as Hawaii. He pointed out the fires were blazing on the Big Island, not Maui, but appeared to struggle to name Maui. “The Army helicopters helped fire suppression efforts on the Big Island because there’s still some burning on the Big Island — not the one that, not the one where you see on television all the time,” he said. On Sunday, he added to anger by replying ‘no comment’ when asked, after spending two hours at the beach in Delaware, for his reaction to the tragedy.

Trump Reveals Why He Will Skip First Republican Primary Debate and Interview With Tucker Carlson Instead | 18 Aug 2023 | President Trump will skip the first Republican primary debate and sit down for an online X (formerly Twitter) interview with Tucker Carlson instead, according to the New York Times. The Republican debate will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin next Wednesday and will be hosted by Fox News.

The Justice Department submitted a filing last week to dismiss the case ahead of a possible trial on Biden’s felony gun charge in a different district. After the plea deal fell apart, Biden pleaded “not guilty” as federal prosecutors confirmed he is still under federal investigation. He was expected to plead guilty to the two misdemeanor tax counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax as part of the plea deal to avoid jail time on the felony gun charge.

Biden raises eyebrows for claiming he watched 2022 bridge collapse in Pittsburgh –‘I got there and saw it collapse,’ Biden tells Milwaukee crowd | 15 Aug 2023 | Joe Biden raised eyebrows on social media Tuesday after he told a crowd in Wisconsin that he watched a bridge collapse in Pittsburgh last year. Biden was touting his [disastrous] economic policies during a stop at Ingeteam, a wind turbine generator manufacturer in Milwaukee, when he brought up the 2022 collapse. “A lot of you were with me when I was in Pittsburgh,” he said. “I watched that bridge collapse,” he said. “I got there and saw it collapse with over 200 feet off the ground going over a valley. It collapsed. Thank God school was out during the pandemic.” On Jan. 28, 2022, hours before Biden’s arrival in Pittsburgh for a pre-planned speech, the 477-foot Forbes Avenue Bridge collapsed, injuring multiple people. Biden reportedly gave his speech four miles from the bridge, and he later visited the site of the damage, but he did not witness the collapse firsthand.
