by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The Wenatchee High School bands’ performance space has gained wide attention not only within the city of Wenatchee, Washington, but nationwide, reaching outlets from the BBC to Jimmy Kimmel Live! The photos—including one of a student crammed inside his small tent with a sousaphone, which couldn’t be comfortable—have led some observers to speculate that these kids were forced into this situation and that this is surely a sign of the apocalypse.

Photos of pandemic life rarely come as instantly iconic as these: a group of high school band students practicing together in a rehearsal room, each playing in an individual green tent, their faces and instruments visible only through a narrow plastic window.

Major grocery store goes WOKE, now labeling products as ‘black-owned’, ‘hispanic-owned’, LGBT-owned, etc…


from The Right Scoop:

A major grocery store chain is now getting into the business of identity and racial politics by labeling minority owned products on the shelf for buyers to see. Here’s a photo of what it looks like via @stillgray:

Giant Foods (also known as Martin’s Food Markets), which operates in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, is the store that announced in December they’d be rolling these labels out this year:

United Nations Demands for Parents to Respect the ‘Sexual Freedom’ of Their Children

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

The push to mainstream pedophilia intensifies.

The United Nations (UN) is issuing a directive to parents across the globe that they should respect the “sexual freedom” of their young children.

The Center for Family & Human Rights is shining light on a UN report claiming that “sexual expression” is part of the “interwoven fabric of children’s privacy.”


from The Waking Times:

Ever pay attention to trends in the media? Some stories and narratives rise and fall in cycles, along with your awareness of them. It’s kind of like a shell game, where the street hustler directs your attention to one shell as a distraction while he shuffles aside the nut with the goods in it. A ‘now you see it, now you don’t,’ kind of thing.

When you see the same story arise frequently in the mainstream media, you can bet that it’s something you’re supposed to be looking at.

There’s Only One News Story, Repeating Over And Over Again

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Doing daily commentary on world power dynamics feels a lot like staring up at the sky watching clouds. Sometimes you see a three-legged pony up there, sometimes a gargoyle, sometimes a laughing baby, but really you’re only ever watching tiny water droplets being moved around by atmospheric winds. They can take on any number of different shapes, but no matter how long you lay there staring up at them you’re really only ever seeing one dynamic play out with different appearances from moment to moment.

The daily news is very much the same, except most consumers of news media aren’t aware that they’re watching clouds. They really do think they’re looking at a three-legged pony, a gargoyle, a laughing baby.

Majority of Brits Say They Will “Miss” Some or Many Aspects of Lockdown

by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News:

Stockholm syndrome?

A new opinion poll in the UK finds that over half of Brits say they will miss either “some” or “many” aspects of lockdown despite the country now having been under some form of restrictions for nearly a year.

Yes, really.

The YouGov survey asked participants, “Do you think you will or will not miss any aspects of lockdown when it is over?”

The People Haven’t Risen Up For The Same Reason Abuse Victims Don’t Leave Their Abusers


by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

There was a great exchange in a recent interview with singer-songwriter FKA twigs regarding her relationship with actor Shia LaBeouf, who she is currently suing for “relentless abuse” including assault and sexual battery.

From The Independent:

In a CBS This Morning interview on Thursday (18 February), King asked the musician: “Nobody who’s been in this position likes this question, and I often wonder if it’s even appropriate to ask… why didn’t you leave?”

Nolte: We’re Telling Kids the Planet Is Doomed and You Can’t Succeed in America

by John Nolte, Breitbart:

Thanks to my parents, my bullshit detector was fully operational as a kid. I still remember a hippie babysitter scolding me for flushing a toilet. “We’re going to run out of water by 1983!” — you know, as though I’d never seen a map of the earth with all that blue.

Yes, my generation had to deal with eco-freaks, but in the 70s and 80s the fear-mongering was rightly marginalized. We weren’t hit with doomsday lies directly from the White House, which is what today’s Generation Z has been terrorized with since 2008, and we weren’t carpet-bombed with 24/7 doomsday propaganda from a fake news media.

Leaked docs reveal how news agency Reuters secretly serves as a tool for British influence across the world

from RT:

Reuters is one of the largest newswires in the world, providing untold numbers of journalists with text they can reuse. What few know is that some of that content is funded by the UK government to serve London’s global interests.

Among a tranche of secret UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) files recently leaked by hacktivist collective Anonymous are papers indicating that Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) – the international newswire namesake’s “charitable” arm – has engaged in information warfare initiatives on behalf of Whitehall.

These endeavors form part of a wider effort to demonize, destabilize, and isolate Russia, at home and abroad. At Whitehall’s direction, TRF has covertly cultivated Russian journalists, established influence networks within and outside Russia, and promoted pro-Whitehall, anti-Moscow propaganda in Russian-speaking regions.


from The Waking Times:

A number of mental health experts have expressed concern over the blatant fear and panic mongering during the COVID-19 pandemic, warning about potential — and let’s face it, likely — psychiatric effects. In a December 22, 2020, article1 in Evie Magazine, S.G. Cheah discusses what may in fact be the real problem at hand: mass insanity caused by “delusional fear of COVID-19.”

Cheah refers to lectures and articles by psychiatrist and medical legal expert Dr. Mark McDonald,2 who believes “the true public health crisis lies in the widespread fear which morphed and evolved into a form of mass delusional psychosis.”

Colorado Democrats Propose Law to Teach Kids How to Choose Between Real & Fake News


by Luis Miguel, The New American:

Control the ability to decide what’s “true” and “false” and you will control the people.

Democrat members of the Colorado legislature are ramping up the Orwellism with a proposal that has the ostensible aim of teaching children to differentiate between fake and credible news sources.

Do we even need to ask what types of news sources their legislation would classify as “credible”?

“Whenever somebody starts off a sentence with ‘I read somewhere that this happened’, you think, ‘wait a minute,’” said Colorado State Representative Barbara McLachlan. “I think we all need to be a little distrustful about where people are getting their information.”

Award-winning teacher warns of new ‘social justice’ indoctrination

by Michael DiMatteo, WND:

‘If alarm bells are not going off in your head right now, they should be’

In the current academic climate, teaching social justice has become more important than content. This is especially true in the fields of history and civic education. For example, teacher training at the University of Illinois is centered around social justice, as more than one student teacher has related to me during informal interviews. Where once the emphasis was on such topics as Bloom’s taxonomy and classroom management, social justice topics seem to have taken precedence.

Total Population and Information Control

by Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform:

What do “they” want?

This 15-minute discussion between NSA Whistleblower William Binney and Pat Robertson illuminates exactly what sort of information the U.S. government gathers on its citizens and for what purpose it will ultimately be used.

I believe you will find the revelations by Binney as disturbing as I find them, especially now that we all realize the data gathering began as soon as the government figured out how.  No wonder a lot of people around here have decided to just go dark.
