Facebook, the arbiters of everything in the new world order, has banned a political ad by the Trump campaign because it used a symbol connected with ‘organised hate’. Yet, it turns out that symbol is one used all the time by ANTIFA.
A red inverted triangle was first used in the 1930s to identify Communists, and was applied as well to Social Democrats, liberals, Freemasons and other members of opposition parties. The badge forced on Jewish political prisoners, by contrast, featured a yellow triangle overlaid by a red triangle.
In response to queries from The Washington Post, Facebook on Thursday afternoon deactivated ads that included the inverted red triangle.
Today, facebook censored Trump. Owen and Tom discuss big tech and Brad Parscale.
Jewish Action charged that “Trump & the RNC are using it to smear millions of protestors.”
The Trump campaign responded, noting that the symbol is an emoji, and is routinely used by ANTIFA, hence the campaign’s use of it in reference to “dangerous mobs of far left groups”
A cursory search confirms that ANTIFA groups use this symbol all the time, as this NBC reporter found out:
A study has found that the “stay at home” lockdown order in the United States will “destroy at least seven times more years of human life” than it saves and that this number is “likely” to be more than 90 times greater.
As we have repeatedly highlighted, the untold cost of the lockdown in terms of untreated serious illnesses and the impact on mental health will not be fully known for years, but discussion around the issue has been limited in the mainstream media.
Now a new study finds that debilitating stress and anxiety caused by the lockdown, including turmoil caused by huge job losses, could lead to a plethora of negative health problems that will have a far greater overall toll on human life than the number of lives saved by the lockdown.
“Based on a broad array of scientific data, Just Facts has computed that the anxiety created by reactions to Covid-19—such as stay-at-home orders, business shutdowns, media exaggerations, and legitimate concerns about the virus—will destroy at least seven times more years of human life than can possibly be saved by lockdowns to control the spread of the disease. This figure is a bare minimum, and the actual one is likely more than 90 times greater.”
Research shows that at least 16.8% of adults in the United States have suffered “major mental harm from responses to Covid-19.”
Extrapolating these numbers out, the figures show that “anxiety from responses to Covid-19 has impacted 42,873,663 adults and will rob them of an average of 1.3 years of life, thus destroying 55.7 million years of life.”
This contrasts with “a maximum of 616,590 lives (which) might be saved by the current lockdowns, and the disease robs an average of 12 years of life from each of its victims, which means that the current lockdowns can save no more than 7.4 million years of life.”
The seven times figure is a massively conservative estimate which minimizes the impact of the negative consequences of lockdown and maximizes the number of lives affected by lockdown.
“Under the more moderate scenarios…anxiety will destroy more than 90 times the life saved by lockdowns,” states the study.
The study lists a number of reasons why the lockdown has increased anxiety and depression, one of which includes the media’s role in exaggerating the deadliness of COVID-19 and “using false denominators that exaggerate its death rate.”
“This research is engaging and thoroughly answers the question about the cure being worse than the disease,” concluded Joseph P. Damore, Jr., M.D., who reviewed the study.
As we highlighted earlier, psychiatrists wrote 86% more prescriptions for psychotropic drugs, including antidepressants, during the lockdown months of March and April compared to January and February.
“Some illicit actors probably will view any continued state-mandated orders as government overreach, and anticipated safety guidelines and policies—specifically the use of face masks—probably also will serve as a driving factor behind continued violent incidents related to the pandemic,” analysts with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wrote in their assessment.
Protesters have been demonized because they have demonstrated their 2nd Amendment rights at anti-lockdown rallies across the country. However, the actual instances of violence have come from authorities enforcing the Draconian policies instituted primarily by Democrat governors across the nation.
Big League Politics reported on one woman who was dragged out of the Michigan Capitol for attempting to report on the legislature, suffering horrible injuries and having a PTSD-induced panic attack in the process:
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been the target of high-profile protests in recent weeks due to her restrictions on Michigan citizens. Her goons have hassled Michigan residents for boating, cited people for gathering outdoors in private backyards, and put thousands of small businesses out of commission. This caused protesters to gather outside of her taxpayer-funded mansion last week, and commence the historic “Operation Gridlock” display that has since gone viral and spread throughout the country.
Graphic videos have been posted on social media of protesters being physically removed from the Capitol premises. One protester, Michigan United for Liberty organizer Wendy Darling, received particularly harsh treatment. During one stretch of the video, she can be seen having a panic attack. She reported suffering serious injuries and needing to be hospitalized because of how she was treated by security personnel in the Capitol.
“I went above and beyond to get extra press credentials today and then they wouldn’t let us in and wouldn’t let the Capitol Police come in and took upon theirself to assault and battery me,” Darling said in a video address to her supporters describing the abusive treatment she received while awaiting her X-rays in a local hospital.
“The numbness from the panic attack is wearing off. In a lot of pain. Whole right side of body, head, neck, back, my right wrist is the worst from the Friction burns,” Darling wrote about her incident in the Michigan United for Liberty group on Facebook.
The deep state is demonizing the anti-quarantine protesters just like they demonized President Trump as a Russian agent. This is their latest scam to maintain their stranglehold on power and keep lockdown tyranny in place heading into this year’s crucial election.
A video of a British woman has gone viral after she took her entire family to the beach and then complained that there were too many other people at the beach who were not social distancing.
The video, shot by the BBC, shows the Karen talking about how nice it is to be at the beach with her loved ones, after she drove an hour and a half to get there. But then the complaining kicks in.
“It’s lovely to get out but I’m quite shocked at how many people are here,” she said, adding “They’re not paying attention to social distancing. I find that quite annoying to be honest – it’s like being in Tesco.”
Karen’s daughter, Karen, added that “It’s nice to get out of quarantine but I think it’s going to peak again because everyone’s going to go mad and go anywhere they can.”
Technocrat preparing to pour $6 billion into next-gen ‘pandemic prevention’ program
May 18, 2020
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is eyeing a hefty $6 billion investment in South Korean telecommunications operator KT’s research on infectious disease control and pandemic prevention over the next three years, Seoul-based Dong-a Ilbo reported, adding the tech mogul has recently applauded South Korea’s headway in curbing the spread of the coronavirus.
As per the South Korean telecoms carrier, it has over the past month been conducting surveys into next-generation quarantine prevention methods to better contain the spread of global diseases, with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation aiming to join efforts with KT to develop an early diagnosis algorithm for contagious diseases and a spread path prediction model that would be based on top-notch AI technology and a variety of communications data.
A flu research program earlier launched by Bill Gates reportedly detected the first coronavirus case in the US back in February, but was recently suspended by the FDA for checks to be carried out into the algorithms used.
“The use of mobile technology and sensors paired with smart data analysis can help address some of the challenges countries face in timely and effective response to disease outbreaks”, Andrew Trister, deputy director of the global health program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, praised the project.
The Foundation will reportedly pay half the cost of the research project in yearly installments.
A data innovation working group that held discussions during the 2018 World Economic Forum reportedly served as the starting point in the ties between KT and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Dong-a Ilbo specified that the first discussion took place in April of last year when the foundation first showed an interest in KT’s presentation titled Global Epidemic Prevention Platform (GEPP) at the ICT Forum hosted by Right Fund, an investment group dealing with global healthcare research.
KT’s research involves the efforts of a whole consortium, consisting of Professor Kim Woo-joo from the Korea University Medical Centre, the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), block chain tech firm MediBloc, and digital healthcare business Mobile Doctor.
One of the first goals, reportedly set for October this year is to work out a mobile application that will be used to record suspicious symptoms pertaining to diseases such as the flu.
IoT-run sensors are to get body temperatures, with symptoms further reported to the app platform, to be used by AI-based algorithms for scrutinizing the chances of flu epidemics, and predicting virus-spreading patterns.
Bill Gates has more than once warned about the dangers of global pandemics, being an outspoken advocate for measures needed to prevent them.
Most recently, his non-profit launched an early coronavirus testing scheme called SCAN – or the Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network, had been testing 300 people a day since early March, before it was ordered by the FDA to stop for more detailed checks.
According to Gates’ blog post, the testing program is an extension of an early flu detection venture he helped found in 2018, the Seattle Flu Study.
The Seattle Flu Study, which previously tracked the spread of the flu during the 2018 season, detected the first COVID-19 case in the US as early as in February, Business Insider reported.
Roose says that the urgency with which a vaccine will need to be produced will allow anti-vaxxers to claim it’s unsafe.
“Any promising Covid-19 vaccine is likely to be fast-tracked through the testing and approval process,”he writes. “It may not go through years of clinical trials and careful studies of possible long-term side effects, the way other drugs do. That could create an opening for anti-vaccine activists to claim that it is untested and dangerous, and to spin reasonable concerns about the vaccine into widespread, unfounded fears about its safety.”
The involvement of Bill Gates in the distribution of any vaccine will also fuel a backlash, according to Roose.
“If that’s the case, anti-vaccine activists, who have been crusading against these groups for years, will have plenty of material stockpiled to try to discredit them. They are already taking aim at Mr. Gates with baseless conspiracy theories claiming that he created and is trying to profit from the virus. These theories will be amplified, and the attempts to discredit leading virus research efforts will intensify as the vaccine nears.”
Finally, he asserts that it would be “a good idea” to make the vaccine mandatory if Americans want to fly or send their kids to certain schools, but that this “would play into some of the worst fears of the anti-vaccine movement” and create “a tangle of legal roadblocks and damaging publicity campaigns.”
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is waging an increasingly high-profile battle against an elderly barber, and he appears to be winning in both the courts of law and public opinion.
Karl Manke, a 77-year-old from Owosso, reopened his shop after he was turned down for unemployment.
Amid the legal threats from Whitmer’s administration, he recently responded, “What, are they going to give me? Life? I’ve got one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. I could care less.”
“As long as I have two hands and I’m capable of cutting hair, that’s my occupation,” Manke said. “That’s what I do. That’s what I’m going to continue to do.”
Manke addressed supporters outside his shop on Monday.
“I’d gone six weeks without a paycheck with no money coming in. I’ve been in this business 59 years…I’m 77. I’ve always worked,” he said.
“I’ve never looked for handouts. I don’t even know what they are. I had somebody call me and say why don’t you get on food stamps. I don’t want to get on food stamps. I want to work.”
“I came into this last Monday alone, thinking I’m going to swing in the wind alone,” he said. “I cannot believe the support that I’ve got,” he added to cheers, with some responding, “You are not alone!”
“It’s overwhelming,” he added, getting choked up.
Another day, Manke made it clear he was going to defy Whitmer’s orders.
He told radio host Steve Gruber he will only leave his shop “if they drag me out in the street or Jesus comes.”
Manke’s levity is a striking contrast to Whitmer’s attempts to appear tough.

When asked specifically about Manke defying her edicts, Whitmer responded, “I expect people to follow the law. These executive orders are not a suggestion. They’re not optional. They’re not helpful hints.”
Despite failing to obtain a restraining order against the barber on Monday, Whitmer’s administration is continuing to pursue him in court.
The Attorney General’s court action, filed on behalf of MDHHS, seeks to enforce the MDHHS Director’s Public Health Order that deemed Mr. Manke’s business an imminent danger to public health in light of the COVID 19 pandemic and directs him to immediately cease operations at his barbershop. The State is seeking to schedule a hearing as soon as possible.
The AG asserted Manke’s open business presents “clear public health dangers.”
After the close of business on Tuesday, Whitmer’s administration stripped Manke of his operating license, his attorney said.
“Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has suspended Karl’s license,” attorney David Kallman told radio host Steve Gruber.
“Not thinking about it, they’ve actually done it without a hearing, without any due process,” he added, saying the action took place some time after 5:00 p.m.
“It’s an unbelievable abuse of power,”Kallman said, arguing there’s no legal basis for the action.
“This is pure retribution by the governor’s office and by the AG. This is so petty and vindictive, it’s beyond the pale,” he told Gruber.
According Kallman, the AG claimed one of the reasons for the license suspension was because Manke was violating the temporary restraining order–which was never granted.
