Oxfordshire County Council Passes Climate Lockdown ‘Trial’ to Begin in 2024 –Residents will be confined to their local neighbourhood and have to ask permission to leave it to “save the planet.” | 30 Nov 2022 | Oxfordshire County Council yesterday approved plans to lock residents into one of six zones to ‘save the planet’ from global warming. The latest stage in the “15-minute city” agenda is to place electronic gates on key roads in and out of the city, confining residents to their own neighbourhoods. Under the new scheme, if residents want to leave their zone they will need permission from the Council who gets to decide who is worthy of freedom and who isn’t. Under the new scheme, residents will be allowed to leave their zone a maximum of 100 days per year, but in order to even gain this every resident will have to register their car details with the council who will then track their movements via smart cameras round the city… Every resident will be required to register their car with the County Council who will then monitor how many times they leave their district via number plate recognition cameras. Two cars will be counted as one — meaning, you will have to divide journeys between yourselves. Two cars, 50 journeys each; three cars, 33 journeys each — and so on.
Scientist who worked at Wuhan lab says COVID was man-made virus| 3 Dec 2022 | A scientist who worked at a controversial research lab in China has claimed that COVID was a man-made virus that leaked from the facility, according to a report. Andrew Huff, who worked for a New York-based non-profit that studied viruses, said COVID leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China two-plus years ago and blamed authorities for the “biggest U.S. intelligence failure since 9/11,” Britain’s The Sun reported Saturday. The lab has been at the center of fierce debates about the origins of COVID, with both Chinese government officials and lab personnel denying that the virus leaked from the facility. Huff, an epidemiologist, said in his new book, The Truth About Wuhan, that the pandemic was the result of the U.S. government’s funding of coronaviruses in China.
Top general blames jab mandate for U.S. recruiting woes | 5 Dec 2022 | The highest-ranking general in the U.S. Marine Corps has argued “misbeliefs” about Covid-19 vaccines are contributing to the military’s manpower shortfalls because many would-be recruits are balking at being forced to take the jabs. “You talk to me in the cafeteria, and one of my first questions is, ‘Do I have to get that vaccine?’ And you go, ‘Yeah, you do.’ ‘Ok, I’ll talk to you later.’ It’s that fast,” said Commandant of the Marine Corps General David Berger. He added that the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate is a “big factor” in deterring enlistment of new troops in southern states, where there are “still myths and misbeliefs” about the [often deadly] inoculations. U.S. Representative Michael Waltz, a Florida Republican and member of the House Armed Services Committee, said the Pentagon is on the verge of discharging nearly 20,000 troops because they have refused Covid-19 vaccinations. “This military mandate has got to stop,” Waltz told Fox News on Monday. “The vaccine does not stop the spread…”
Ah, then came the dawn: Buffalo Mass Shooting Victim Patented Hydrogen System for Cars –Beyond his day job, Salter spent the past decade developing a car engine fueled on water. | 5 Dec 2022 | Of all the locations and all the possible victims… Mass murderer Payton Gendron drove over 200 miles to target a location where retired Buffalo police officer, Aaron Salter, Jr., happened to be working as a security guard. Aaron Salter, Jr., is the inventor of an electrolysis system with patent number 9,863,309: “The present disclosure overcomes problems associated with existing electrolysis systems in automobile engines and improves upon existing systems. A fuel system is provided for generating hydrogen and oxygen for use in an internal combustion engine to improve combustion efficiency of the engine and to decrease emissions from the engine…It is estimated that the method of utilization of the sludge generated during electrolysis as a fuel increases the efficiency of energy production of electrolysis by approximately 60%.”
Thousands rally in Rome against arming Ukraine –Trade unionists and leftists marched after the new government promised more arms for Kiev next year | 4 Dec 2022 | Left-wing demonstrators took to the streets in Rome on Saturday, demanding higher wages and condemning the Italian government for renewing a decree allowing it to send weapons to Ukraine until 2024. Organized by Italy’s USB trade union and backed by a number of leftist political factions, the protest saw thousands of people assemble at the Piazza della Repubblica and march behind a banner reading “guns down, wages up.” “The Meloni government is dragging us further and further into a spiral of war with unpredictable outcomes,” the USB wrote prior to the protest.
McConnell Caves to Pelosi, Schumer, Allows JCPA Media Cartel Bailout Bill to Be Included in Defense Package – Sources –The Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) is a bill to enable further collusion between the media industry and Big Tech. | 5 Dec 2022 | Senate GOP Leader [and traitor] Mitch McConnell has caved to outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and will allow the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to include the highly controversial media cartel bill the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA), sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News. Over objections from House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, the likely next speaker of the House come January 3 of next year, other congressional leaders acquiesced to lobbyist pressure and agreed to include the JCPA in the base text of the NDAA. McCarthy was the only member of congressional leadership to fight back against the inclusion, but was overruled three to one after McConnell caved. The JCPA has absolutely nothing to do with national defense, so the move–a swan song of sorts for Pelosi, who just announced she is leaving congressional leadership but retaining her House seat after Democrats lost the majority to the GOP in the midterm elections–is an egregious step for an outgoing leader of the past against precedent as the NDAA has generally been reserved just for national security matters.
Musk Admits ‘Quite Significant’ Risk of Assassination | 5 Dec 2022 | Elon Musk said on Dec. 3, a day after the release of a selection of Twitter’s internal files that suggests the tech giant has suppressed free speech under its previous management, that he believes he faces a “quite significant” risk to his life. “Frankly the risk of something bad happening or literally even being shot is quite significant,” Musk said in a Twitter Spaces discussion on Saturday evening, adding that he would “definitely” avoid open-air car parades in all circumstances. “It’s not that hard to kill me if somebody wanted to, so hopefully they don’t,” the new owner of Twitter said. “There’s definitely some risk there.” The remarks over his potential assassination came after Musk and independent journalist Matt Taibbi unveiled on Friday a trove of internal Twitter communications that provided a glimpse into Twitter executives’ efforts to censor the New York Post’s explosive Hunter Biden laptop story in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election.
FBI Coordination With Big Tech Censorship Ahead of 2020 Election Revealed in Agent Deposition, Missouri AG Says | 5 Dec 2022 | Officials from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security frequently met with major social media companies ahead of the 2020 election and pointed out users and pieces of content for removal, according to information from a deposition of a senior FBI agent revealed by a state Attorney General. “We found that the FBI plays a big role in working with social media companies to censor speech–from weekly meetings with social media companies ahead of the 2020 election to asks for account takedowns,” said Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt in a Dec. 2 series of tweets, three days after deposing Special Agent Elvis Chan, who is in charge of cyber affairs at the FBI San Francisco Field Office. Chan has given major social media companies warnings that have led them to censor information about a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, shortly before the election that put Biden in office, according to a lawsuit against the Biden administration led by Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.
Former FBI Lawyer Who Approved FISA Warrant to Spy on Trump Helped Censor Hunter Biden Laptop Story | 4 Dec 2022 | James Baker, the former FBI lawyer involved in approving the faulty Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign, also helped censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, according to a series of tweets posted by Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi. Twitter CEO Elon Musk released the so-called Twitter Files Friday afternoon, detailing how the social media platform suppressed a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020. The Daily Caller News Foundation verified the authenticity of the laptop soon after the NY Post published the story. The Twitter data released Friday shows executives working with Biden officials to suppress the story, according to Taibbi. Baker, who served as Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel at the time, argued it was “reasonable to assume” the materials “may have been” hacked and said, “caution is warranted,” according to Taibbi’s tweets.
