Depression skyrocketing in children due to lockdowns, study

A study conducted by researchers at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit located at the University of Cambridge in Britain revealed that the lockdowns have caused depression rates to skyrocket among children in Britain. No one knows if this will have long-term consequences.

Leak reveals Communist China’s infiltration of Britain

A disturbing leak of the names of 1.95 million registered members of the Chinese Communist Party revealed that many of them hold key positions in Britain. This includes the British government, universities and major businesses involving such fields as banking, the defence industry and pharmaceuticals. Apparently someone with access to the server containing the party memberships risked their lives by deliberately downloading the names onto the social media app — Telegram. It showed the world how far the Chinese Communist Party’s tentacles have spread. I would love to see the list for the U.S. and Canada. The Daily Mail explains: Loyal members of the Chinese Communist Party are working in British consulates, universities and for some of the UK’s leading companies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. An extraordinary leaked database of 1.95 million registered party members reveals how Beijing’s malign influence now stretches into almost every corner of British life, including defence firms, banks and pharmaceutical giants. Most alarmingly, some of its members – who swear a solemn oath to ‘guard Party secrets, be …

Radical Disruption: Your life is about to change.

How are you doing this year? Did you see all these changes coming, in 2020? I didn’t. It’s clear to all of us that things are still changing. Everyone I know does not like the restrictions with the COVID pandemic, and we wonder when things will be normal again. That will be never. Disruption to our lives, and the cost of coping with COVID restrictions is forcing businesses, employers, to close; and they might never re-open. The world has changed forever. READ: Covid-19 will permanently change the world’s economy So, what does that mean to us? What happens when my life changes, and keeps changing? What will happen to you? This is not an abstract economic theory, this is a permanent change to the way we live, and it has already happened. Soon we will see and feel the effects. I work at a job that I really enjoy, and in a few days it will all be over. I can’t tell you what it is until the work has stopped because I work under …

More businesses abandon California

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been more announcements of businesses and people fleeing California. Many cite the state’s socialist policies, anti-business atmosphere, high taxes, declining lifestyles, ridiculous lockdown and environmental regulations as the reasons for their departure. Of course, it becomes a vicious cycle. With California’s eroding tax base combined with the Democrat government’s refusal to cut spending, tax increases are the only solution to make up for lost revenue. So, the cycle continues. This past week, Oracle, a major developer of business software, announced it was moving its headquarters to Texas citing its employees quality of life as one of the reasons. It currently employs 135,000 people and it is not known how many will be directly impacted by the move. The Register reports: Oracle is shifting its California headquarters to the Lone Star State, saying change of scene will “improve our employees’ quality of life and quality of output.” “Oracle is implementing a more flexible employee work location policy and has changed its Corporate Headquarters from Redwood City, California to …

Study: Strength of transgender women only slightly reduced

There has been questions raised over whether men transitioning to women should be allowed to compete in female athletics. Some believe that transgender women still have a competitive advantage over biological females. According to a study published in the British newspaper, The Guardian, even though transgender women suppress testosterone, it only slightly decreases their strength.

More on Communist China military training in Canada

I reported on it earlier, but stories are circulating around the world about how Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not only allowed Communist China’s military to train in Canada, but he was the first to invite them. People are absolutely dumbfounded. According to an Access to Information request, Communist China’s army had trained with the Canadian military 17 times, before Canada’s generals finally stood up to Trudeau.

Recent Gallup Poll shows why churches are essential

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis just announced that churches were essential and removed the state’s attendance caps that restricted religious services. In part, Polis was responding to Liberty Counsel’s recent legal victories where courts ruled that US states can not violate religious freedoms guaranteed in the American Constitution by restricting church services in the name of COVID. And a recent poll by Gallup concurs that churches are indeed essential services. The survey, conducted between Nov 5 and 19, revealed that people over the age of 18 who attended religious services were experiencing better mental health than those who weren’t. In the 2020 pandemic year, 46% of people who attended church services reported excellent health and surprisingly this was even higher than the 2019 pre-pandemic years when 42% in the same group reported excellent mental health. Gallup also noted that those who regularly attended religious services was the only demographic that showed an increase in those claiming excellent mental health over the previous year. For Americans as a whole, the Gallup poll revealed only 34% described their …

Who is trying to sabotage COVID vaccine shipments to Canada?

According to British Columbia’s minister of health, Dr. Bonnie Henry, the RCMP and Canadian military are now protecting COVID vaccines being sent to Canada because credible sources suggest someone is trying to sabotage the shipment. The Pfizer vaccine that Canada has ordered requires extreme-cold storage and will be kept at two heavily secured sites in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province.

Scratch off ‘Proxima b’ for alien life

I think most atheists have been watching too much Star Trek or Star Wars because they believe these movies are science, not entertainment. Because in these movies, the actors are regularly scanning other solar systems and finding planets with alien life at different levels of technological advancement. Sometimes, they find two or three planets sustaining alien life in the same solar system.

Healing the racial divide: A black and white congregation merge

An interesting thing happened in Salisbury, North Carolina when two churches decided to merge. Now, there is nothing particularly unusual about churches merging, because I was even part one several years back. But this was a bit different because it involved the merging of a black church pastored by a young black man, Derek Hawkins, and a predominantly white mega church pastored by Jay Stewart. And in the light of the racial divisions appearing in America’s social fabric, this may have more significance than we realize as both pastors felt they were led by the Holy Spirit to do this. In an interview with the Christian Post (CP), Hawkins said the first step to the unlikely merger started in 2014, when he took his daughter to have her hair done and came across a sign for a downtown extension of Stewart’s mega church, The Refuge. This led to Derek attending a service and eventually asking the older middle-aged Stewart to take on a mentoring role as Derek was preparing to pastor a church in nearby …

A Christmas letter from the perpetually offended

I love how they pretend their concern is that someone else will be offended, when we know it is them who is offended. Kim Hunt, a front line nurse in St. Anthony, Minnesota, received an anonymous letter from a neighbour complaining about Hunt’s very modest set of Christmas lights on her home. And, according to reports, three other people in the neighbourhood received a similar letter.

Swiss court declares worship a human right and reverses the government’s ban on church services

In the midst of the COVID-1984 lockdown, many governments have been particularly keen on trying to stop Church services under the guise of stopping COVID. However, the Catholic News Agency is reporting that one of the most restrictive bans has come to an abrupt end in the Canton of Geneva in Switzerland when a judge ruled that the COVID-1984 ban on church services was unconstitutional. The government ban had stopped all church services and allowed only limited attendance at funerals and weddings. Several Christians in the Canton challenged the ban arguing it impinged on their religious freedom. The judge gave a temporary restraining order allowing services to restart until the case was heard at a later date. The judge noted the state would probably lose the case because its ban violated the Swiss constitution that guarantees freedom of worship. Switzerland has 26 Cantons, and the judge’s ruling means that services are allowed to restart in Switzerland’s capital city, Geneva. Switzerland has the reputation of supposedly being the “human rights capital of the world” but its …
