This is happening everywhere everyday & nobody wants to expose the truth. A friend was organizing her mom 80th birthday this past 9th but someone else decided to persuade her mom to get the vaccine without her knowledge, 24 hrs later her mother died before the party. 🤬😔

At the heart of the conflict, three cities transferred from Somalia to Afar, following the drawing of the border between these two states, in 2014, by the federal government, then led by a multi-ethnic coalition, the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF ). Since then, the Somalis have tried to win them back.
At least 200 people were killed and several wounded yesterday July 24, 2021 in an attack by the Afar armed forces on the town of “Garba cisse” located between the states of Afar and Somalia. The slaughtered civilians are women, children and the elderly, we are saddened by the senseless slaughter of the poor innocent civilians. Nothing in the world justifies the collective murder of civilians.
The first responsible are the federal governments of Ethiopia and the regional government of Afar state. We appeal to the international community, the international solidarity association, but also human rights NGOs.
Actress Kirstie Alley slammed so-called trans “inclusive” terminology like “chest-feeding” over the weekend, claiming it degrades and nullifies women.
The “Cheers” star first broached the subject on Twitter Saturday morning, with a post that said, “BREAST-FEEDING IS what WOMEN do. Women also bottle feed. Men bottle feed too. We do not have to buckle to the insanity of the minuscule minority of lunatics who make us feel guilty for not sharing their insanity. ‘Chest feeding?’ ‘human milk feeding?’ WTF STOP IT!!!”
It was unclear what sparked Alley’s comment, but last week, as The Daily Wire reported, the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine published new guidelines on “lactation-related language.” Among the organization’s recommendations is replacing the verb breastfeeding with gender-neutral terms like “human milk feeding” and “chest-feeding” because, they claim, “not all people who give birth and lactate identify as female.”
While the vast majority of responses to Alley, including nearly 16,000 likes, expressed agreement, she seemed to address the comparatively few critical replies about 15 minutes later.
“I’m a little tired of the degrading and nullifying of women and their abilities,” she explained further. “Breastfeeding is one of our abilities. It’s a beautiful and important ability. Knock off the nullifying of women [for] the sake of lunatics. Equal rights does not equal insanity.” A few minutes after that, she added, “It’s our personal responsibility to agree or disagree with concepts. My only point here today is don’t let insanity force you to pretend like you agree with the insanity. It’s part of the insanity to shame you into agreement.”
In her final post on Saturday, Alley denied that her support for former President Trump had any impact on her beliefs about the issue of trans terminology, saying, “My views of this BS are not political. I have plenty of friends from both political persuasions who SHARE the view of the INSANITIES being shoved down our throats by pervs trying to degrade our society. Don’t be afraid to disagree with people who seek to pervert workable morals.”
The following day, Alley addressed another detractor.
“I don’t need to speak for ‘cis’ women,” she said to a critic who argued that Alley doesn’t speak for “cis women’s breasts or bodies.” She went on, “I am a woman and feel comfortable just calling myself a woman and having a woman’s point of view. I don’t need to be ASKED to speak Deb. We handled that pretty well in 1920.”
In Alley’s final word on the subject Sunday, she shared that she prefers terms that acknowledge her own womanhood. “For the record I don’t care what people call themselves or categorize their identity. Just leave mine alone,” she said. “I’m happy with woman, mother, actress, sister, daughter, grandma and [girlie] …”

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) quietly updated its website over the weekend to adjust its policy on whether adverse effects from an employer-mandated COVID-19 vaccination should be counted as a recordable workplace injury.
On Friday, the agency’s guidance released April 21st, which stated that adverse reactions from employer-mandated vaccinations are “work-related,” remained in effect.
If an employer requires its employees to be vaccinated, adverse reactions to the vaccines are considered “work-related” by OSHA. Employers who require COVID-19 vaccines must notify OSHA within 24 hours of an employee’s inpatient hospitalization (or within eight hours of an employee’s death) resulting from an adverse reaction.
For employers subject to OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements, if the adverse reaction meets other general recording criteria (e.g., days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, or medical treatment beyond first aid), the reaction must be recorded on the employer’s OSHA 300 log, even if it does not lead to hospitalization. For example, if an employee uses a sick day because of fever and chills following administration of the vaccine, the reaction must be recorded. On the other hand, if an employee merely requires over-the-counter medication to ease soreness at the injection site, the action need not be recorded.
Here’s a screengrab of OSHA’s guidance from Friday, via Google’s Wayback Machine:
DOL and OSHA, as well as other federal agencies, are working diligently to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations. OSHA does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts. As a result, OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination through May 2022. We will reevaluate the agency’s position at that time to determine the best course of action moving forward.
After an initial surge, voluntary vaccination rates have hit a wall, and the powers-that-be are desperate to get things rolling again. But should they be? At this point, 73.7% of the population of over-65 Americans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and 85.2% have had at least one dose. These are the most medically vulnerable to the virus, and this rate, along with seasonality and natural immunity, has resulted in plummeting death rates across the country.
Still, one can understand the desire to continue to get vaccination rates up. However, there is a fine line between enticement and coercion. Employers forcing employees to undergo a medical procedure against their will is bad enough, but the government going on to release those same employers from having to pay for any negative effects from that procedure seems like a whole other level of insane.
Remember when Attorney General William Barr said he would protect our Constitutional rights?
Last week, he said his Department of Justice would be on the lookout for overly strict lockdown measures.
Well, it didn’t take long for Barr’s team to spot one glaring example — they found it in the state of Virginia.
A pastor dared to hold a church service for 16 people on Palm Sunday. And as a result, he was facing a steep fine and possibly even jail time.
However, it seemed like a ridiculous arrest: the church could hold 293 people, and only 16 – properly spaced out – were in attendance.
And the DOJ agrees that it WAS ridiculous.
They’re stepping in to help the church in their battle against Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (via Fox News):
The Justice Department is siding with a Virginia church suing Gov. Ralph Northam after police threatened a pastor with jail time or a $2,500 fine for violating the state’s coronavirus lockdown restrictions by holding a 16-person church service on Palm Sunday.
When police served a summons to Lighthouse Fellowship Church pastor Kevin Wilson, that was a step too far in the eyes of many.
The church quickly leveled a lawsuit against Northam and the state of Virginia. And rightfully so, I say.
Mat Staver, chairman and founder of Liberty Counsel, who is representing the pastor, added:
As important as it is that we stay safe during these challenging times, it is also important for states to remember that we do not abandon all of our freedoms in times of emergency.
Unlawful discrimination against people who exercise their right to religion violates the First Amendment, whether we are in a pandemic or not.
That’s exactly right.
And the good news is, our Department of Justice is lending their significant influence and power to this battle.
So it looks like DO have allies in Washington, and Barr is true to his word!
They may find many other examples of draconian lockdown orders in the country. Maybe they should take a gander at Michigan, for instance…
But no matter what happens, it’s nice to know that Pastor Wilson and the faithful Virginia residents have a strong ally!
SHARE if you think some lockdown orders have become WAY too strict!
Hesitant Heroes started this petition to Representative Barbara Lee and 17 others 3-4 minutes
This petition aims to help pass a bill that would create a public registry for people who have been found guilty of committing a felony racial hate crime, similar to what already exists for those convicted of sex crimes.
First and foremost, we would like to convey our deepest condolences to the families of all those who have lost their lives due to the unjust, systematically biased America in which we find ourselves; in which we have always found ourselves. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Laquan McDonald, Tamir Rice, Alton Sterling, Freddie Gray, Rekia Boyd, Walter Scott and so many others. As we have witnessed the irreparable harm that has already been done, we continue to see African Americans subjected to these injustices daily. And we continue to see the perpetrators of these injustices not be held accountable. This must change.
Recently, there has been a plethora of videos to surface that shows racist people flaunting, abusing and misusing 911 as their own personal tool to fulfill their racist intentions. This crime is not only racist, it is reckless, abhorrent and could lead to death. Since the murder of Emmett Till, it has been a constant plague in our society.
Lawmakers in the city of New York have recently passed legislation that will make false race-based 911 reports a hate crime, according to Andrew Cuomo’s “Say Their Name” Reform Agenda. We vehemently support this bill, but want to push it further. We demand that those convicted be entered into a public database as Racial Predators. Eventually we hope to include all hate crimes (including, but not limited to, hate crimes based on sexual orientation/identification, creed or sex.) There is no legal accountability that is sufficient enough for the magnitude of this crime; nothing that would deter the misuse of our justice system or the continuation of these false accusations.
This petition calls to not only hold civilians accountable for race-based actions, but also for the accountability of Law Enforcement. In a Guardian article, Paul Butler states: “Cops routinely hurt and humiliate black people because that is what they are paid to do. Virtually every objective investigation of a US law enforcement agency finds that the police, as policy, treat African Americans with contempt.” These officers will search for every reason that might lead to an arrest and abusers have used this to their advantage.
The transparency of police officer’s prior disciplinary records, as well as the elimination of “Qualified Immunity” are essential in this venture. Truly reforming our broken system requires getting to the foundation of how it works. A farmer knows that nothing will grow an overgrown field by merely sprinkling seeds on top of the weeds. They need to clear the field and till the soil in order for things to grow. Let’s do what we need to do to plant the seeds that will feed and sustain our society.
We are demanding through this petition that anyone, including police officers who are convicted in this crime or any other racist hate crimes, MUST be registered as a racial predator in a public database so that we all know who they are.
A Black Lives Matter activist suggested the packaging of American food manufacturing company Kellogg’s was racist, prompting a response from the company.
Black Lives Matter activist and former U.K. member of Parliament Fiona Onasanya criticized Kellogg’s earlier this week, asking why “three white boys” serve as the mascots of one the company’s signature cereals, Rice Krispies, and a monkey is displayed on boxes of Coco Pops in the United Kingdom, according to the Federalist.
“@KelloggsUK, as you are yet to reply to my email – Coco Pops and Rice Krispies have the same compòsition (except for the fact CP’s are brown and chocolate flavoured)… so I was wondering why Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand and Coco Pops have a monkey?” Onasanya, who was expelled from the U.K. Labour Party after a three-month prison stint for lying to police in 2018, tweeted earlier this week.
Onasanya also took a shot at the founder of Kellogg’s, saying, “Well, given John Harvey Kellogg co-founded the Race Betterment Foundation (the Foundation’s main purpose was to study the cause of and cure for “race degeneracy”), it would be remiss of me not to ask…”
Kellogg’s responded in a statement, arguing that it supports the black community.
“We do not tolerate discrimination and believe that people of all races, genders, backgrounds, sexual orientation, religions, capabilities and beliefs should be treated with the utmost dignity and respect,” the company said, adding that the Coco Pops monkey is also the same character representing the white chocolate cereal. “The monkey mascot that appears on both white and milk chocolate Coco Pops, was created in the 1980s to highlight the playful personality of the brand.”
The accusation against Kellogg’s comes as racial tensions across the globe were heightened following the death of George Floyd, a black man killed while in police custody on May 25.

A drone developer claims to be working on new technology that uses sensors to monitor people’s heart rates and temperatures. Such technology has privacy advocates feeling rather unsettled.
Canadian drone company Draganfly says it’s working with the Australian Department of Defense and the University of South Australia to develop pandemic drones.
The drones leverage a computer vision system that is able to detect respiratory rates of people below its flight path. If these pandemic drones work as advertised, they’ll capture human sneezes and coughs.
Business Insider obtained demonstration images that show how these pandemic drones could monitor large events or nursing homes. Here’s a working example of how the pandemic drone functions. You’ll see in the demonstration below, as a man coughs, the drone is able to display it.
A human operates the drone as it soars above people. The information is cast back to the control device whereas the coughing or ill human’s location is quickly detected. The group claims to have a $1.5 million budget.
“We had imagined the technology being used in a future relief expedition to some far-away place. Now, shockingly, we see a need for its use in our everyday lives immediately” Dr. Javaan Chahl, defense science and technology chair at the University of South Australia said.
The company is working hard to secure a supply chain and begin distributing pandemic drones worldwide.
Of course, it is difficult to ignore the repercussions on privacy that such technology might have. A world whereas drones monitor our daily movements from above is as unsettling as it gets.

Let’s stop the minute-to-minute annoyance of unsolicited calls constantly coming through to our mobile phones.
Calls when we are in a meeting, calls when we are with our children, calls when we are having dinner, calls when we are going to bed – when does it end?
Ten a day, then 15, then 20 – it just doesn’t stop.
Join me and sign the petition to pressure the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to require that all phone carriers implement into their networks, free of charge, robocall blocking technology to prevent these calls from ever getting to your mobile phone.
We need the FCC to make the necessary regulatory changes on their end and then to start this mandate of the phone carriers.
Many of the hundreds of millions of calls are originating overseas. Companies and scammers are using computer technology to dial literally millions of numbers a day. With the push of a button millions of calls go out through the network at one time.
Furthermore, they are using “spoofing” technology to have those calls come through to our phones as a local call by showing a local area code to try and fool people into picking up.
It is time for the FCC to require phone carriers to develop and implement technology that can detect when a flood of calls are coming through the networks and prevent those calls from ever making it to your mobile phone.
Please sign the petition here, send this along to your friends and family and make our voices heard! The more that sign, the more the FCC will take notice.
In addition to this petition, please reach out to your congressional representative and United States Senator and let them know you have had enough and that you want them to lend their voice by letting the FCC know the robocall insanity must stop!
Fifteen- year- old Logan Blytne has Down Syndrome and Autism. He began as a Cub Scout when he was eight and progressed through the Boy Scouts earning sanctioned alternative badges. When the time came to earn his Eagle Scout rank, is Utah Chapter approved his Eagle Scout project. Then it happened. The National Boy Scouts of America decided not only to not approve his Eagle Scout project, but to rescind his alternative Badges and demote him to Cub Scout. This is outrageous. this petition demands of the Boy Scouts of America reinstate his Badges and approve his Eagle Scout project.

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
