Chicago Teachers Union delegation praises Maduro, socialism during trip to Venezuela

by Victor Skinner, American Mirror:

Three teachers and a union organizer flew to Venezuela to study the country’s successes in government and education in person, and now they’re taking heat for using the union’s name “on what appears to be a state-chaperoned propaganda tour.”

Chicago teacher and member of the Chicago Teachers Union, Karen Moody, is among dozens of union teachers who are complaining about a self-described “CTU Delegation to Venezuela” last month that’s distorting reality in the failed South American state to tout the alleged successes of socialism.

What the Elites Think Americans ‘Need’ Has Nothing to Do with Individual Rights

by William Sullivan, American Thinker:

You may have noticed that all advocates of federal gun control are arguing for the same end result, which is federal limitations upon the individual right to own firearms. But the underlying arguments as to why they believe that the federal government should be allowed to do so can vary, and often pretty wildly.

There are some who argue, for example, that the Second Amendment was never meant to guarantee any individual right, as CNN’s Chris Cuomorecently argued.  Some others may argue that the Second Amendment only protects guns owned for the purposes of hunting or sport.  That’s all intellectually indefensible, given the precise words of the Second Amendment and ample facts which provide the historical context for its inclusion in the Constitution.  As such, these examples are rarer than the other, more honest argument among gun control activists that I’ve encountered.

Multinational Business Roundtable Now Claims “Social Responsibility” More Important than Profit….

from The Conservative Treehouse:

CTH suspected this was going to happen. This was predictable if you have followed the fracture between Main Street (Trump) and Wall Street (multinationals).  Remember, there are trillions at stake.  This news today is part of the battle.

Here’s the cut through the BS motive behind the multinational association of Business Roundtable CEO’s (these are all pure Wall St.) suddenly saying “social responsibility should be put above profit“…

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced his resignation in the Italian Senate ending the coalition government.

Odd Couple Fails

Italy’s “odd couple” government, an alliance between Left-wing M5S party and the Right-Wing League party collapsed today.

The collapse was long in the making as the only thing the parties had in common was an anti-immigration stance. At the time the coalition formed, the Five Star Movement (M5S) was the senior party with the League (previously the Northern League) as the junior party.

Media Wants To ‘Teach’ Readers How To Think By Switching From Russia Collusion Lies To Race Baiting Fake News – Devastating NY Times Leak Crushes Narrative As MSM Rushes From One Hoax Story To Another

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

For nearly three years Americans were fed a constant diet of liberal establishment fake news about Donald Trump’s campaign colluding with Russia. Wall to wall coverage, with many of their written stories having to be changed, retracted, corrected and in some cases totally deleted, which continued right up until the release of the special counsel’s long-awaited report which determined there was no conspiring or coordination by any American citizen, including the Trump campaign, with Russia.

Faced with severely disappointed and angry readers and viewers who just had their last hope of negating the 2016 election buried under an avalanche of reality, the media needed to change gears to give their dwindling audience something else to be outraged about. The decision has now been made that “racism” will now replace “Russia” in their coverage, as evidenced by an internal “town hall” over at the New York Times, to which a recording was leaked to the leftist outlet Slate.

CHANGING THE TEXTS… OF GEORGE ORWELL

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

For some time I’ve been warning of the danger of e-book platforms like Kindle and Nook and so on, which to my mind surrender  undue influence and control over texts to corporations which, with their record of supporting political correctness and other kinds of tom-foolery, could be a bad thing. Repeatedly I’ve warned that e-books, like any cyber system, are not really secure, and that anyone could hack into them and change the text of books to suit their political or cultural agendas. Over and over I’ve warned that e-books would be like the old Soviet Encyclopedia, on steroids, this year Yezhov is in the picture with Stalin, next year he isn’t, because he’s been purged. Or, imagine e-book versions of the Book of Common Prayer or other Christian or, for that matter, any other religious text. It would be a theological revisionist’s dream come true; troublesome texts could be revised, disturbing traditions could be expunged, at the push of a button.

Federal Judge Orders FBI to Search for More Christopher Steele Docs

by Debra Heine, PJ Media:

After years of legal wrangling, a federal judge has given the FBI 60 days to cough up records of their communications with former British spy Christopher Steele after he was terminated as a confidential human source.

The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch first sought FBI documents on Steele in May of 2017 through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The court initially sided with the FBI but reopened the case in 2018 when evidence emerged that Steele was an FBI informant. Judicial Watch again asked the FBI to search for their Steele records, but the FBI continued to stonewall, declining to confirm or deny that they even existed.

Big Cities That Are Struggling With Hepatitis, Typhus, Mountains Of Human Feces And Millions Of Rats Are All Run By Democrats

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Major cities all over America are being transformed into rotting, decaying, disease-infested hellholes, and it doesn’t exactly take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Our actions are the product of our belief systems, and the major U.S. cities where the conditions are the worst are always dominated by a particular political ideology. If the citizens of those major cities like the results that they are currently getting, then they should just continue to do what they have been doing. But if they want real change, then those citizens are going to have to be willing to make fundamentally different choices than they have been making in the past.

The Censorship of Alternative Media Is Virtual Book Burning

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Recent discussions about an executive order that would “help protect” conservatives from bias on social media have brought a bone of contention to the forefront. Are alternative and conservative media actually being censored or are non-mainstream journalists and bloggers just whining?

As the owner of a website that is demonstrably facing censorship, I can tell you that from my point of view, we Americans are currently in the midst of a virtual “book burning” akin to the ones we look back on in shame.

Billy Eilish, Epstein & The Luciferian Agenda

Try the Brave browser – It’s more than 2X FASTER than Chrome & Safari and it WON’T spy on you. https://brave.com/sgt200

Billy Eilish is celebrated as a genius for her Satanic lyrics and Luciferian imagery. The all out assault on our culture has reached a fevered pitch. By the way, TMZ will get all revenue from any ads you see on this original 9-minute micro-doc. That’s how YouTube fixes the system for its corporate partners.

The prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association has published a study linking fluoride ingestion by pregnant mothers with low IQ in their offspring.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Despite the overwhelming mass of scientific literature and studies showing the harmful effects of ingesting fluoride, those who question it or advocate for the cessation of fluoridated water are labeled as kooks, conspiracy theorists, and shouted down by the mainstream. And in spite of study after study showing the harmful effects of fluoridating water, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers water fluoridation to be one of the top 10 achievements in public health in the 20th century. Proving the utter insanity of such a claim by the CDC, a study was just published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, that links maternal fluoride expose during pregnancy and low IQ.
