Five states lift facemask requirements

With Texas taking the lead stating it was lifting its COVID facemask requirements and allowing businesses to function at 100% capacity, four other states have followed suit stating they will end the need for facemasks when out in public. This was in response to rising vaccination rates and declining numbers of COVID cases. In addition, the Democrat Governor of Connecticut, Ned Lamont, has announced that stores can return to 100% capacity, but its facemask requirement remains in place. CBN explains: Meanwhile, a number of states are lifting restrictions as new cases and hospitalizations have plunged. Gov. Ned Lamont (D) of the blue state of Connecticut announced he’s lifting nearly all limits on businesses – returning to full capacity at restaurants, hair salons, and gyms. Five states: Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, Montana, and Texas have all lifted their mask mandates. “Texans have mastered the safe strategies – they don’t need an order from Austin, Texas telling them what to do,” says Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX). READ: 5 States Lift Mask Mandates and Even This Blue State Lifted …

Is a teachers’ union racially profiling those wanting schools to reopen?

The United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) is opposed to having schools reopened and as part of its campaign, UTLA is allegedly racially profiling those calling for schools to reopen. An email was sent to one person, who had apparently been cited in the media supporting school reopening, to find out the person’s racial identity. The Daily Caller provides the details: California’s largest teachers union has allegedly sent emails to racially profile parents who have spoken favorably to media about the Los Angeles school district reopening. The Feb. 19 email is entitled as a “research project,” and appears to be sent from an official United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) email address. The “research specialist” said that they are compiling data on race and class based on who speaks about Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) issues in the Los Angeles Times.  READ: Teachers Union Allegedly Sends Emails To Racially Profile Los Angeles Parents Speaking To Media In Favor Of School Reopening And, oh yeah, when the president of UTLA stated that the pressure to reopen schools …

65% of Austrians say lockdown worse than virus

According to a recent Gallup Poll, 65% of Austrians believe that the country’s lockdown is causing more damage than the virus. This is up from the 41% of Austrians who had that same sentiment last year. As the lockdowns continue, the Austrians are seeing two things. First, the lockdowns are clearly not working. If they did, the virus should have been stopped in its track last year. Secondly, they are seeing first hand the damage the lockdown is doing to the economy and people’s lives.

Bullied by Love?

Many people claim to be Christian yet do some very anti-Christian things. In North America, we have politicians who go to church on Sunday and then enact unbiblical policies Monday. The United States president is an example of this hypocritical confusion by saying he is a devout Catholic and then speaking and acting in favour of abortion.

COVID lockdown turns into free speech lockdown?

With one of the world’s most successful vaccination programs, Britain is on the verge of ending its lockdowns that were among the most restrictive in the western world. But recent access to information request revealed that with its lockdown soon to end, the government wants to extend its law banning protests. Some are calling it a blatant attack on freedom of speech. Breitbart explains: The British government is reportedly seeking to extend powers granted to police to crack down on protests even after lockdown restrictions are lifted, raising concerns about the state of freedom of speech in the country. A freedom of information request has revealed that Home Secretary Priti Patel wrote to the HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS), questioning how the government could continue to limit protests. In the September letter, reported by The Observer on Sunday, Patel said that while protesting is “a cornerstone of our democracy”, she inquired as to how the Home Office could prevent protests from impacting upon “the rights of others to go about their …

Why is that pastor in jail?

We were driving today, and we went further than we usually do. We drove out of the city to a suburban place, for our shopping. That travel is permitted, under our COVID restrictions, the change of scenery was nice, and I like to get away from the busy places where infection rates might be higher. It was all good, until I saw a huge crowd of people, on a street that is usually quiet. We drove closer, and we saw people waving signs, to protest something. It was a surprise. When we got close, we could see that no one in the protest rally was wearing a mask, or doing anything to prevent Covid infections. There was no social distancing in that crowd. A large crowd of people were protesting something at a suburban courthouse. I didn’t have to ask what was happening. A pastor named James Coates is in jail because churches are restricted, for COVID safety.

Canada: Justin Trudeau’s botched vaccine roll out

It is becoming increasing obvious that Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is clearly in over his head. He had companies willing to produce a made-in Canada vaccine, but things started going wrong because of Trudeau’s unhealthy obsession with Communist China. The National Post explains: Let’s go back to April of 2020. The world is still very much in the first wave of COVID-19, and governments around the world are scrambling to find some way to get back to normal. On May 6, the Government of Canada announces a deal with CanSino, a Chinese company that was developing what was then one of the world’s most promising vaccine candidates. The arrangement was that Canada would conduct human trials for the CanSino vaccine and then, once it was approved, we’d manufacture it within our own borders. But there’s just one problem. When CanSino tried to send Canada its first shipments of the vaccine, it was arbitrarily blocked at the border by Chinese authorities. Why? Probably retaliation for Canada’s arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou for extradition to …

Why is China buying Britain’s private schools?

Concerns are being raised in Britain that Communist China is buying up private schools. The purchasers include senior members of the Chinese Communist Party. This leads to an obvious question, why would members of the Chinese Communist Party want to take over private schools in Britain? Breitbart explains: Brexit leader Nigel Farage has warned that there is a “communist takeover” of large swaths of Britain’s private education sector, as an investigation has revealed that schools throughout the country have been bought out by firms connected to the Chinese government. There are currently 17 private schools in the United Kingdom owned by Chinese firms, nine of which are owned by senior members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The schools are reportedly presenting a “whitewashed” view of China to their students, and one school has admitted that the goal of infiltrating the education system is to propagate China’s One Belt, One Road global initiative, an investigation from the Mail on Sunday revealed. Reform UK party leader Nigel Farage said that the British government “must wake up …

Study: Greenland was warmer 80 years ago

This will be a bit disconcerting for the Global warming fanatics who have been claiming that because of rising C02 emissions, the earth is warmer than anytime in the past 1,000 years. The alarmist keep telling us that if we don’t reduce CO2 emissions, ice in the Arctic and Antarctic will melt and our coastal cities will be flooded. Of course, the facts say otherwise.

Did green energy cause the Texas freeze?

When you think of Texas, you think of a state full of oil and natural gas, so why are Texans experiencing energy blackouts in the midst of the coldest weather they had seen in decades. The answer: thinking green. Nearly half of Texas’ windmills that provide a significant percentage of the state’s electrical power froze up. Green energy didn’t cause the freeze of course, that was caused by man-made Global Warming (sarcasm). But this green energy failure is causing people to suffer the consequences of the freeze. The Houston Chronicle explains: Natural gas shortages and frozen wind turbines were already curtailing power output when the Arctic blast began knocking generators offline early Monday morning. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, which is responsible for scheduling power and ensuring the reliability of the electrical network, declared a statewide power generation shortfall emergency and asked electricity delivery companies to reduce load through controlled outages. More than 4 million customers were without power in Texas, including some 1.2 million in the Houston area, the worst power …
