Ivermectin cut COVID mortality by 92%, study

Despite the mainline media referring to Ivermectin as a horse dewormer, when people claimed that it was an effective treatment for COVID, a major, peer-reviewed study confirmed the medication significantly reduced COVID deaths. The Daily Skeptic reports: Regular use of ivermectin led to a 100% reduction in hospitalisation rate, a 92% reduction in mortality rate and an 86% reduction in the risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection when compared to non-users, a major new study has found. The study, published in the medical journal Cureus, analysed data from 223,128 people from the city of Itajaí in Brazil and is the largest study of its kind, giving its findings a high degree of certainty. Senior author Dr. Flavio A. Cadegiani wrote on Twitter: “An observational study with the size and level of analysis as ours is hardly achieved and infeasible to be conducted as a randomised clinical trial. Conclusions are hard to be refuted. Data is data, regardless of your beliefs.” READ: Ivermectin Cuts Covid Mortality by 92%, Major Study Finds – Why is it …

Study: Obsessively watching the news can make you sick

If you are obsessed with watching the news, a study out of Texas Tech University suggests it could be bad for your health, Study Finds reports. In fact, the researchers noted that those who daily check the headlines will experience “significantly greater physical ill-being,” both physically, mentally and emotionally in the form of anxiety and stress. The study, which involved 1,100 people, added that one in six people had what researchers described as an addiction to the news. Study Finds reports: This can start interfering with people’s personal lives, leaving them feeling powerless and distressed about global events including the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and climate change. […] Almost three-quarters (73.6%) with severe levels of problematic news consumption experienced mental ill-being “quite a bit” or “very much” compared with just eight percent of all participants overall. The study also found that more than three in five (61%) news addicts experienced physical ill-being “quite a bit” or “very much” compared with just six percent of everyone else.

Free speech beats Big Tech in Texas court case

Free speech was the big winner and Big Tech was the big loser in a recent Texas court case. Two organizations had taken the state of Texas to court after it passed a law banning Social media corporations, with over 50 million monthly users, from censoring speech on their platforms based on the user’s political leanings. PJ Media provides more details: On Sept. 9, 2021, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed House Bill 20 into law. In a statement, Abbott summarized the new law: “House Bill 20 prevents social media companies with more than 50 million monthly users banning users simply based on their political viewpoints. The law also requires several consumer protection disclosures and processes related to content management on the social media sites to which the bill applies. These sites must disclose their content management and moderation policies and implement a complaint and appeals process for content they remove, providing a reason for the removal and a review of their decision. They also must review and remove illegal content within 48 hours. House Bill 20 also prohibits …

Facebook quashed stories about Hunter Biden because of FBI

A recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports found that 53% of Americans believed there is a politicized element within the FBI that works as “Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.” And that seems to have been confirmed by an admission by Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg, who said the social media giant banned, censored, gagged, suppressed, stifled, and restricted any news about information found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, after being contacted by the FBI. Hunter Biden, of course, is the much-maligned son of US President Joe Biden. His laptop contained rafts of information on how he used his political connection to wrangle deals that allegedly included companies in Communist China. The Daily Wire reports: Zuckerberg told podcast king Joe Rogan that the FBI, which by then had been in possession of the laptop for nearly a year, contacted top Facebook officials weeks before the election to warn them that a major dump of Russian disinformation was coming. When the New York Post broke the story, Twitter kicked the news site off its platform, and Facebook, Zuckerberg said, downranked …

YouTube’s shocking announcement, people can now say facemasks don’t work

In a shocking announcement, it seems that YouTube will no longer ban any videos that state facemasks are all but useless when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID: Of course, research has been showing how ineffective facemasks were since 2020, but YouTube would not allow anyone to disagree with the government’s propaganda. YouTube banned Rand Paul in 2021 for citing two peer-viewed studies that showed facemasks were useless. Meanwhile, study after study was saying facemasks are ineffective: READ FROM 2020: Two top Oxford academics accuse Facebook of censorship for branding their article on whether masks work ‘false information’ READ: The astonishing data that may prove masks DON’T work as Covid cases in Singapore and New Zealand OVERTAKE Australia despite SUPER strict mandates: ‘They don’t matter’ READ: So, what was the point?

Google pays US$43 million for misleading Australian users

An Australian court has just ordered Google to pay US$42.7 because it misled users on how much data the Tech giant was collecting on them through their android devices, The Blaze reports. According to the suit, Google was in violation of Australian Consumer Law when it misled an estimated 1.3 million Google account holders and tracked their personal locations. Google has agreed to pay the fine. The Blaze explains: “This significant penalty imposed by the Court today sends a strong message to digital platforms and other businesses, large and small, that they must not mislead consumers about how their data is being collected and used,” said ACCC Chair Gina Cass-Gottlieb. “Personal location data is sensitive and important to some consumers, and some of the users who saw the representations may have made different choices about the collection, storage and use of their location data if the misleading representations had not been made by Google,” Cass-Gottlieb added.

Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon warns that ‘truth’ is under attack

Seth Dillon is the CEO of the Babylon Bee, a popular website that publishes satirical stories on current news events. Dillon is also a Christian and this past week spoke at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia, where he warned that truth is under attack across America. The Christian Post reports. “We’re living in crazy times, unusually crazy times, actually outrageous times where absurdity is everywhere,” Dillon began. “Truth is under attack. Reason is under attack.” “Comedy is under attack. And you can’t speak up and try to defend any of these things, or they try to suppress your voice and silence you. Freedom of speech is under attack.”   Dillon said the world is “increasingly becoming more and more difficult” for Christians to speak “the truth boldly in the public square.”  READ: Babylon Bee CEO tells megachurch the ‘truth is under attack’ in America Fact-checking satire Though the Babylon Bee is satirical, Snopes, a left-wing website, actually fact-checked one of the Bee‘s articles, where it satirically wrote that CNN had purchased two massive industrial washing machines …

Fact-checking the left-wing media’s ‘dangerous delusions’

The New York Post often looks at stories published in the left-wing media and compares the actual facts with their delusional versions of events. The article’s subhead reads: “Diary of disturbing disinformation and dangerous delusions.” Here is one fact-check that caught my attention: This report: “A forensic psychology professor . . . said bias killings are often perpetrated by . . .  typically young white men.”— AP, Tuesday We say: Much of the media characterized the murder of four Muslims in Albuquerque, NM, as “anti-Muslim” hate crimes, but the Associated Press went even further, suggesting the culprits were likely “young white men.” Oops: The lead suspect turned out to be a 51-year-old Muslim immigrant from Afghanistan. For more interesting delusions from the left-wing media. READ: The week in whoppers: Biden’s inflation perversion, AP’s racial profiling and more

Enviro fanatic hails the benefits of a US-China war and COVID?

Apparently, a member of our esteemed media is suggesting that a war between the US and Communist China would be good because it will help stop global warming. And yes, he allegedly also wrote about the benefits of COVID for the same reason. It happened recently after Communist China threatened military action if US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, visited Taiwan on her recent visit to to Asia. Breitbart provides more details: South China Morning Post (SCMP) North American bureau chief Robert Delaney published a bizarre editorial on Tuesday in which he suggested a war between America and China, sparked by Beijing making good on its threat of a military response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) visit to Taiwan, could be even better than the coronavirus pandemic for reducing the world’s carbon footprint. Delaney’s long screed, which only got around to his give-war-a-chance grand finale in the final paragraphs, included hosannas for the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic as the luckiest break for the climate change movement in generations, since it significantly reduced energy consumption and emissions.

American trust in mainstream media at historic lows

According to a recent Gallup poll, America’s trust in the mainstream has fallen to a historic low, Forbes reports. The poll found that only 16% of US adults state they had ‘quite a lot’ or ‘great’ confidence in the mainstream newspapers, and only 11% said the same about television news. Equally, concerning is that the level of trust is down 5% on both accounts from a similar poll taken last year. Not surprisingly, the trust in the legacy media is highest among Democrats. In terms of television news, 20% of Democrats said they still trusted this medium, compared to just 8% of Independents and 8% of Republicans. When it came to the legacy newspapers, only 35% of Democrats fully trusted this news source, compared to 12% of Independents and 8% of Republicans.

Ten stories from this week

The New World order?

There has been a lot of talk about how left-wing politicians are trying to use the COVID pandemic as the basis for a great reset.

Christian News: Chris Pratt, the Christian Taliban, Jane’s Revenge, Ex Mafia boss, exorcisms on the upswing, NHLer Josh Manson, Canadian military chaplains, and a mother’s prayer

Here is a brief round-up of some Christian news this past week: Christ Pratt talks about religion Hollywood actor Chris Pratt found himself in a bit of controversy this past week, when in an interview with Men’s Health, Pratt said that he was not religious, but added that he had a relationship with God. “I think there’s a distinction between being religious — adhering to the customs created by man, oftentimes appropriating the awe reserved for who I believe is a very real God — and using it to control people, to take money from people, to abuse children, to steal land, to justify hatred. Whatever it is,” Pratt explained. When asked if he attended Hillsong, which has found itself in a pile of controversy recently, Pratt said he attended Zoe Church in Los Angeles.

Did a reporter try to infiltrate Sean Feucht’s intercessor group?

In his last message to the elders of the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul warned them to be on alert for wolves that were going to attack the flock (Acts 20:29-31). Jesus issued a similar warning, but with a slight twist. He said beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15 ESV) The Lord said there would be people who would purposefully try to infiltrate the church, pretending to be spiritual and like-minded. And if possible, some may even try to worm their way into leadership positions. And worship leader Sean Feucht got a lesson on how easily this can happen when a reporter tried to infiltrate one of his groups. Over the past two years, Feucht held worship/prayer sessions across the US, including spots where the riots took place and the street where George Floyd died. Most recently, Feucht has set up intercessor groups to pray for the Supreme Court decision on the potential overturning of Roe …

New York Times admits mask mandates didn’t work

On Tuesday, May 31, 2022, President Joe Biden sent his lawyers to the Federal Appeals Court to overturn a lower court ruling that ended Biden’s mandate that masks be worn on all public transport including passenger jets. Ironically, the same day that Biden was hoping to have the mask mandate reinstated, there was an article in the New York Times that basically admitted that mask mandates made no difference in stopping the spread of COVID.

Facebook censors a meme of boys playing accusing it of gender stereotyping

One of the co-founders of Army of Parents, an organization dedicated to fighting Loudoun County Public Schools’ woke agenda, alleges that Facebook censored one of its memes, the Daily Caller reports. The move reflected a major change in the censorship bureau at the social media giant. Last year, Erin Poe had posted a meme with photos of six boys that included them playing in mud and climbing fences with the words “Raising boys is not for the faint hearted.” Last year, it was fine, but when Poe decided to repost it this year, when it came up as a memory on her timeline, Facebook’s Politburo deemed the meme as gender stereotyping and removed it. Facebook censors then blocked Poe from accessing her page for three days. There was an added warning that a second offense would lead to a seven-day ban, and persistent posts deemed offensive by the politburo could lead to a permanent ban.

From Time’s “Is God Dead?” in 1966 to the New York Times’ Call to “Give Up God” Today

On April 8, 1966, the pictureless front cover of Time Magazine asked a bold and direct question: “Is God Dead?” This was just two days before Easter Sunday, and in the decades that followed, it became increasingly common for anti-God, anti-Jesus, anti-Bible essays to be featured in various secular publications at this time of year.

Study: High social media usage may cause mental health issues for teens?

According to a study conducted by Cambridge University’s Digital Mental Health program, social media may be causing mental issues in teens, particularly as they enter puberty. The study, reported by The Verge, noted that it came to this conclusion from studying the results of seven surveys of 72,000 individuals between 2011 and 2018 and a survey of 17,000 between the ages of 10 to 21. The study found that higher social media usage resulted in teens having ‘low’ self-esteem and ‘poor’ body image, which showed up when they entered puberty, and also at the time they were ready to leave home. The Verge reports: “Narrowing in on adolescents, the team found that for people in the 16- to 21-year-old age range, both very low and very high social media use were both linked with lower life satisfaction. In 10- to 15-year-olds, there wasn’tmuch difference in life satisfaction between kids reporting low and high social media use. But in that group, girls with high social media use had lower life satisfaction than boys.” READ: Social media …

Did Jesus speak about censorship on Palm Sunday?

According to China Aid, a watchdog on religious persecution in Communist China, effective March 1, 2022, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has banned the word “Christ” on China’s social media platforms. The banning was part of rules implemented under the Communist regime’s “Measures for the Administration of Internet Religious Information Services.” The Early Rain Covenant Church (ERCC), a house church movement that started in China in 2006, was one of the first to report the fallout of this new law. China Aid reports that one of ERCC’s members was creating a survey on WeChat, a group messaging app, asking members to vote on their favorite Christian book. Included on the list was one entitled, The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis. As soon the member typed the word Christ, the WeChat app refused to allow the post to be uploaded and provided the following warning: “The word ‘Christ’ you are trying to publish violates regulations on Internet Information Services, including but not limited to the following categories: pornography, gambling, and drug abuse; excessive marketing; incitement.” …
