“We have never before seen restrictions as severe, extensive and prolonged as those experienced for most of 2020.”
“The COVID crisis has served as sort of a constitutional stress test,” he said during his address over a video link for the conservative organization’s annual conference.
“It pains me to say this,” Alito added, “but in certain quarters, religious liberty is fast becoming a disfavored right.”
The justice said freedom of speech was also under threat.
“Although that freedom is falling out of favor in some circles, we need to do whatever we can to prevent it from becoming a second-tier constitutional right,” he said.
What do humans seek? I think it is control: the ability to manipulate our external world so that our internal world feels safe and like we have made good choices and need no doubt or regret; we cannot control our inner world, can only partially predict the external world, and fear looking back on wrong choices and realizing that we suffer for the unrealistic things that we did.
How do we handle this? The smart ones submit to the idea of an order beyond themselves: nature, God/gods, civilization, logic, reality. They love this order and see, despite its dark sides, that ultimately it tends toward good, beauty, consistency, opportunity, and prosperity. They find joy and wonder in this order and see how they can fit within it and by doing so, optimize their own adaptation to the point of having a qualitative dimension. They accept reality and nature as smarter than themselves and attempt to evolve and triumph within it.
The dumb ones turn to control. This fatalistic view — the notion that life tends toward the bad — leads them to individualism, or the notion that only they are good, real, true, and worth saving. This makes them make war on nature, the divine, civilization, and everything else except them, including their spouses and children. They cultivate an inner darkness but decorate it in peace, altruism, love, compassion, happiness, and wealth, since they want to keep justifying to themselves that they are a success because this is what they wanted all along.
As of today, the controllers think they have won, but they have not. They find themselves on the defensive because several centuries of pursuing egalitarian prole-rule has led us into ruin, and so we want to try another direction, submission to and enhancement of reality. The push toward legitimizing this election by getting Trump into office, whether by lawsuits, Supreme Court, legal twist, or House of Representatives, serves as only one part of this.
Alito puts his finger on what controllers do: they channel their own doubt and fear outwards and use it to manipulate others, a powerful approach that might be said to be evil. They hyped COVID-19 into a catastrophe — in fact, it only carries off the sick, old, or insane — so that failing China could take over the world, and were paid well for this, and now they are using it to try to beat the population into submission so that they accept fake president Joe O’Biden and the rest of his cronies from the Obama-Clinton gang.
He returns to the idea of our founding fathers, which was that if we got government out of the way, culture would take the place of the Nanny State and work things out for us. Instead, we got political machines after Irish immigration became an issue, then a civil war and civil rights, and through those, a government dedicated to regulating every aspect of life so that it would be ideologically oriented toward the “correct” idea, egalitarianism.
This leaves us with a choice: we either ditch egalitarianism, or embrace doubt, control, fear, guilt, shame, self-hatred, China, corruption, political machines, unions, demographic replacement, atheism, anti-culture, pop culture, socialism, consumerism, globohomo, multinational corporations, globalism, internationalism, hubris, and the death of the West.
Which side are you on? You no longer have the luxury of deferring this choice.
Moreover, all of the patients tested had low or undetectable serum IFN-α levels during acute disease. These auto-Abs were present before infection in the patients tested and were absent from 663 individuals with asymptomatic or mild SARS-CoV-2 infection (P < 10−16). They were present in only 4 of 1227 (0.33%) healthy individuals (P < 10−16) before the pandemic.
Now we know who is at risk. We should test for this, and isolate these people, instead of destroying our economies and social life for fear.
Despite prohibition laws, 11 miles of service tunnels became passageways to basement speakeasies with innocuous fronts above ground. Patrons were able to move about under the city, boozing it up without a care in the world, while the Mayor’s office ran the supply of hootch.
King Eddy Saloon, an establishment that has been alive and kicking on 5th and Main since the 1900s, hid in plain sight fronting as a piano store. Luckily, local officials took no issue with King Eddy’s sudden interest in music, and the business not only survived, but prospered. Now an official saloon once more, its basement still remains part of the tunnel system, littered with crumbling brick lines and graffiti murals.
To explore the former highway of the LA underground, you must slip behind the Hall of Records on Temple Street and locate an easy-to-miss elevator. You’ll be transported down into a subterranean passage filled with mysterious street art, rusted machinery, and iron gates that limit your exploration to areas deemed earthquake safe. Officially, the tunnels are closed to the public.
Realists may find themselves living this kind of reality: as the dying and insane society above us continues its protracted and tedious death rattle, real life awaits hidden away from the madding crowd and the ravening herd.
Despite the best efforts of the ring-kissing, bootlicking journalistic class to squelch truth on behalf of power, by the time this poll was conducted awareness of the shenanigans was ubiquitous. Even among Biden voters, fewer than 1-in-3 believe the election was a clean one.
We all know that the dying Globalist Revolutionary International Deep State (GRIDS) is cheating. Two-thirds of the Leftists do not care. We are going to have to seize power by any means necessary and ship these people to Venezuela on giant cruise ships.
Alibaba 9988.HK and JD.com JD.O said the United States was the top seller of goods to China during the Singles’ Day shopping extravaganza that generated about $116 billion in merchandise volume for the pair.
Trump policy working hard. He wants to make the US self-sufficient, meaning that we produce everything that we need and have leftover excess to sell worldwide. This rejects globalism in favor of actual competition between nations; globalism is designed to stop that, replace it with a vote that the more numerous third world countries will win, and hobbling of the first world.
Hong Kong’s autonomy was guaranteed under the “one country, two systems” agreement enshrined in the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration signed by then Chinese Premier Zhao Ziyang and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
“Beijing’s imposition of new rules to disqualify elected legislators in Hong Kong constitutes a clear breach of the legally binding Sino-British Joint Declaration,” Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said.
The world is slowly waking up to the fact that Xi Jinping and his unstable Communist-Consumerist hybrid society China is the new Genghis Khan or Joseph Stalin. Asia has always struggled with being a prosperous region that produces too many people of too primitive an outlook to be stable. This is why thousands of years ago, groups of Asians fled to Korea and later Japan, to get away from the rest. Most likely, thousands of years before that, this was a colony of people like the Yamnaya who either interbred with hominids or degenerated through the accumulation of deleterious mutations that accompanies civilization.
Laila Abdul-Rahman, one of a team of criminologists who have been investigating police brutality and racism at the University of Bochum for the last two years, says it’s a typical case. She and her colleagues interviewed more than 3,000 people, some of them from ethnic minorities, for their study. Now, they’ve published their report.
Does anyone trust “studies” anymore? They say what their writers are paid to say. Studies are just written papers that in theory use scientific methods, but when your method consists of interviewing lots of immigrants — who get more free stuff if brutality, racism, etc. are found — and assessing their reports in an Excel spreadsheet, the “study” has very little worth.
‘Your rules ban “virtue signalling no matter how worthy the cause”. If presenters can support war-related campaigns on the news, surely they can show they believe in equality for black and gay people? Or is that against BBC values?’
While many agreed with his argument others said the tweet ‘politicised’ the poppy, and that it shouldn’t be viewed in the same way as the fight for equality.
Those soldiers died in a war for democracy and equality. They got trolled by the Left. Now the neurotic and voracious Left wants to troll us into supporting yet another crazy egalitarian notion so that snowflakes feel safe. Go back to Africa if you want to do it your way, Ms. Oluwole, but we want to live our way, and that means less egalitarianism and more realism.
Police have confirmed the incident was not terror related and are now said to be investigating whether lockdown rules had a part to play.
In the name of freedom and equality, our governments rule us with terror. Confined to their uncomfortable homes, forced into endless Zoom conferences, and compelled to mask up just to visit their local communities, people are starting to snap. This will provide a good army for the coming revolution against the Revolution.
In the order, Mr Trump accused China of “increasingly exploiting” US investors “to finance the development and modernisation of its military”.
The ban is to go into effect in January.
It could affect some of China’s biggest publicly-listed firms, including China Telecom and tech firm Hikvision.
Trump has evidence of voter fraud perpetrated by China. He now has his mandate to entirely disconnect us from China, and for us to become self-sufficient, while countering China not as competition, but a demented adversary that intends to take over the world.
Then prosecutor Jesse Evans asked Langford about a text message Travis McMichael had sent him last year that used a slur for Black people when referring to a “crackhead … with gold teeth.”
Evans also cited a photo Langford posted to Facebook last year to which Travis McMichael replied: “Sayonara,” along with an offensive term for Asians followed by an expletive.
The State wants you to believe that if someone is “racist,” then he is guilty. This is textbook bigotry. If your fear of bigotry makes you into a bigot, you have done something really wrong. In the bigger picture, we see why diversity will never work. It is a grave of empires, not a doorway to “progress.” We should also mention here that “racism” does not exist, since the term seems to mean noticing differences between groups and preferring your own. That is part of realism, and a right of human beings, especially those smarter than the rest who are able to see such things. We cannot be ruled by the bottom of the IQ heap any longer.
Ma had told a summit in Shanghai on Oct. 24 that the regulatory system was stifling innovation and must be reformed to fuel growth. Earlier this month, Reuters reported the speech set off a chain of events that torpedoed the listing of Ant.
Tell yourself that the Leftists in the government are not doing the same thing to your economy with COVID-19 lockdowns, and for the same reason: you disobeyed them.
The IOPC probe found that South Yorkshire Police knew Hussain had ‘a number of relationships with young girls in foster care’ as early as 2000, according to the Times.
The investigation found officers – none of whom face disciplinary charges – also made a deal with Hussain, in which he would deliver one of his missing 14-year-old victims to police.
He was not arrested, nor questioned, when the girl was returned, the report adds.
Fear of appearing “racist” means that laws do not apply to Leftists and minorities.
Opponents of the decision, by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston, promised to appeal to the Supreme Court, where legal experts believe the 6-3 conservative majority could use the case to end more than 40 years of allowing race as a factor in higher education admissions.
In theory, equality means that you treat everyone the same, but then people point out that this is not equal, because everyone did not start at the same place. Therefore, you compensate some — a mental process known as relativism justifies this — for having disadvantages. This prioritizes those with disadvantages, and then you end up with a system of incompetents where every job is moronic and narrow in focus so that you can use people as replaceable cogs. Affirmative action applies to much more than education, and its consequences go much further than anyone realizes.
Xi Jinping’s China is an infirm colossus that will be frustrated by unmet ambitions. A strong but frustrated country poses a special kind of danger. This is the China Nightmare.
China remains internally unstable and while successful, not successful enough to make itself work, placing it on a footing where it will require war and conquest to shore up its flailing economy and internal political, social, and cultural turmoil.
The suspects are believed to have set up a “right-wing terrorist organization” with the goal of “destabilising and ultimately overthrowing” Germany’s democratic order, prosecutors said when they announced the arrests in February.
These guys got seduced by the Movement Far-Right (MFR), an entity which exists across the West and seeks to convince people to join Nazi-themed groups getting ready for race war. Half of its members are informants or informers, and the rest are insane. The MFR serves mostly to block normal people on the Right from waking up to demographic replacement, which is why the intelligence services funnel it hundreds of millions through monthly fees paid to informants.
Shrinking ranges for mammals, birds, and amphibians already account for an 18 percent loss of previous natural ranges, the study noted, and with a jump, it expected to reach 23 percent by the year 2100.
Too many humans using too much land will drive out natural species, who will then have population crashes in whatever tiny reserves we allow them to have.
The program is a partnership with 16 different federal agencies, private companies, conservation and wildlife organizations, and the Yurok Tribe to bring condors back to the U.S. northwest.
These programs do good things but may be entirely moot if these animals do not have enough wild land to repopulate. Humans have taken over everything.
On Ms Clinton, sources told the Post that the move “would be a way for Biden to highlight the importance of that position in his administration, and that placing her there would raise the prestige of the UN itself at a time when global cooperation and the US role on the world stage, has ebbed”.
We call them globalists (née “internationalists”) for a reason. Not only does Biden want a raft of lobbyists on his team, but he will appoint Hillary Clinton to the United Nations to allow her to further trade away American interests for kickbacks.
Salgado said he has never seen people cycle through as repeatedly as he has in recent months, after the United States began expelling almost all migrants caught on the Mexican border rather than returning them to their homelands. Now, human smugglers often attempt to get migrants back across the border the very same day they are deported, he said.
We are going to have to cut off what brings them here, namely the free stuff they receive like education, housing, medicine, school lunches, and welfare.
For years, the Democratic Party has operated under one immutable assumption: Long-term demographic trends would give the party something like a permanent majority as the country as a whole grows less white and more urban.
They still have this hope. Minorities have noticed that diversity sucks, too, and many of them now want to limit it so that they can enjoy what they have without getting replaced by the next group to offer free labor. Blacks, in particular, woke up in the 1990s to find that they were getting replaced by Hispanics. Now Hispanics are noticing lots of Asians in their neighborhoods.
“Perhaps we should [do] a little less [of] wrapping our children up in cotton balls and assuming they can’t do things, or not wanting them to do [something] because we perceive it might be dangerous,” executive producer Hamo Forsyth told The Post.
It also helps to avoid living in diverse places.
The Elders, a group of prominent former world leaders, voiced concern on Thursday at US President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede electoral defeat, saying it showed disrespect for the integrity of American democracy.
The group was founded by late former South African president Nelson Mandela and is now chaired by former Irish President Mary Robinson.
All the globalists want him to concede. They fear the obvious: with the amount of cheating and fraudulent voting going on, there is no way that Joe Biden gets a “clean” win. That means that we either elect Trump, or accept the end of American democracy as a functional system. These other nations would like that because they like a weak America, since they hope to take over what it does. If so, history will record that rising diversity under President Bill Clinton destroyed the USA. Either way, populism wins and the Leftist Regime declines.
After a week of disagreements over the contents of the proposed declaration pushed by France, Austria and Germany, references to Islam were removed along with demands for newcomers to learn the languages of their new home and “earn a living for oneself”.
Democracy Inc. belatedly realizes that it is broke and its new migrants will drain it so thoroughly that nothing will remain. New plan: control the migrants, just like it controls other citizens. This will end in George Floyd style chaos.
However, a so-called Texit, or Texas exit from the union, is a common myth mired in legal issues that would make secession controversial, if not outright illegal.
Eric McDaniel, associate professor of government at the University of Texas at Austin, told the Texas Tribune in 2016 that “the legality of seceding is problematic. The Civil War played a very big role in establishing the power of the federal government and cementing that the federal government has the final say in these issues.”
If our national elections are not legitimate, secession will re-emerge as a viable option. No state can be obligated to serve under a government created through such a dubious process. None of its citizens can have representation when other states can allow crooked votes to seize the office of president.
As part of widespread improvements, a two-mile tunnel will be built that will effectively remove the sight and sound of traffic passing the site, and cut journey times.
The decision by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps goes against the recommendation of the Planning Inspectorate, which warned of “permanent” and “irreversible” harm arising from the project, unseen in the site’s history.
Does it ever strike you as strange that we know our ancient history only through archaeology? Political upheaval means that the past is lost, and in fact erased, by our demands for “the now.” Current needs may favor such actions, but how will the ancient survive, when contemporary governments fail and all falls to ruin?
The “Stop LGBT” proposal, which seeks to outlaw public gatherings of the LGBT+ community that “promote” non-heterosexual “sexual orientations”, amassed more than 200,000 signatories, twice the number needed for it to be reviewed by politicians.
Silliness prevails as an attempt to counter-signal the rising trend of using gay rights to backdoor Leftism into every government. Close the original backdoor: civil rights itself. When government does not exist to force equality into every nook and cranny of life, these special interest groups cannot abuse it. Let culture do the rest. Build society around healthy families by removing as much government as possible, and people will adopt an attitude of benign tolerance for quiet homosexuality, which is appropriate. We do not want to become the mirage image of our enemies!
Ethnic minority groups were more likely to be employed as essential workers, and hence less able to work from home, the study said. Therefore, they continued to have contact with others through work or commuting, thereby being left more exposed to infection.
They are also more likely to have lower socioeconomic status, which may increase the likelihood of living in overcrowded households, or accommodation with shared facilities, the findings suggested.
Black people are twice as likely to become infected with COVID-19 as white people, and people from Asian backgrounds are one and a half times as likely, researchers found.
Maybe just admit that diversity has failed and is failing minorities most of all. COVID-19 was the great revealer: it showed how incompetent the rank and file of our leadership are, how panicked and death-paranoid most people are, how useless published science and “experts” are, and how little diversity actually works.
And even though a remodel in 2018 fixed earlier perceptions the store was dirty, poorly stocked and a bit of an afterthought, some White residents in the Longfellow neighborhood would still drive to a different Target instead, derogatorily referring to the location — and its customers — as “Tar-ghetto.”
So the roughly $80 billion corporation did something it hadn’t before: met with Black residents, employees and community organizers (over Zoom; it’s 2020 after all) to ask what they wanted to see in the reconstructed store.
Target hired a contracting company owned by a Somali-American woman and built some of those neighborhood requests into its blueprints. It also added shutters to the store that can come down in case of future emergencies.
Translation: a whole lot of potlatch, kow-towing, and bowing which serves to disguise the fact that they rebuilt the store as a riot-proof fortress. Watch the rest of industry to do the same: take community survey, hire affirmative action architect, then redesign so you can incorporate giant metal shutters which descend in seconds to seal the place off from the world. Future stores will simply be giant metal cubes that descend into the parking lot and lock like a nuclear shelter.
Once in office, Trump ignored this consensus. He implemented a program of tax cuts, spending increases and unprecedented pressure on the Fed to cut interest rates to zero and keep them there. Trump’s goal of 3% growth was derided as delusional, while a bipartisan chorus of commentators declared his policies reckless and irresponsible.
They were anything but. Not only did the unemployment rate continue to fall, but the percentage of Americans aged 25 to 54 either employed or looking for a job saw its first sustained rise since the late 1980s. This inflection point changed the character of the labor market.
In 2016, real median household income was $62,898, just $257 above its level in 1999. Over the next three years it grew almost $6,000, to $68,703. That’s perhaps why, despite the pandemic, 56% of U.S. voters polled last month said their families were better off today than they were four years ago.
Remove the Soviet-style quest for equality, and government functions in the background instead of taking over daily life. Then the economy comes back, as does hope and relaxation. People become contented. This enraged the Left, who depend on an angry and miserable electorate to get them into office so they can steal until they are wealthy enough to never have to see any of it.
