  1. John Michael Posobiec III is an American alt-right and alt-lite political activist, television correspondent and presenter, conspiracy theorist, and Internet troll. Posobiec is best known for his pro-Donald Trump comments on Twitter, as well as using white supremacist and antisemitic symbols and talking points, including the white genocide conspiracy theory. He has promoted fake news, including the debunked Pizzagate conspiracy theory claiming high-ranking Democratic Party officials were involved in a child sex ring. From 2018 to 2021, Posobiec was employed by One America News Network (OANN), a far-right cable news television channel, as a political correspondent and on-air presenter. He left OANN in May 2021 to begin hosting a show for the conservative student organization Turning Point USA, and to join Human Events as a senior editor.
  2. Drew Weissman and Katalin Karikó receive prestigious honor for their foundational research that led to development of two lifesaving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines PHILADELPHIA – Drew Weissman, MD, PhD, and Katalin Karikó, PhD, the pair of researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania whose innovative mRNA research laid the foundation for development of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines being deployed across the globe, have been named among recipients of the 2021 Princess of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research.
  3. Boy, this Robert Malone is a real Pants on Fire Liar: https://www.logically.ai/factchecks/library/3aa2eefd Fact Check: False It is Dr. Katalin Karikó and her collaborator Dr. Drew Weissman who are more commonly credited with laying the groundwork for mRNA vaccines. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "mRNA vaccines teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies." mRNA vaccines are a new sort of vaccine; the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna were the first. On his personal website, Twitter, and LinkedIn, Dr. Robert Malone has been promoting himself as the inventor of mRNA vaccines. This is misleading. In 1989, Malone published a paper titled "Cationic liposome-mediated RNA transfection." While this paper is an example of his important contribution to the then-emerging field, it does not make him the inventor of mRNA vaccines. According to Stat News, "for decades, scientists have dreamed about the seemingly endless possibilities of custom-made messenger RNA or mRNA." According to the New York Times, "For her entire career, Dr. Kariko has focused on messenger RNA, or mRNA — the genetic script that carries DNA instructions to each cell’s protein-making machinery. She was convinced mRNA could be used to instruct cells to make their own medicines, including vaccines. UPDATE: Malone reached out to Logically, stating that he did not invent the mRNA vaccines, but instead the "vaccine technology platform." He also presented us with copies of nine patents – none of which showed that he invented the mRNA vaccines. The judgment for the claim has not changed.
  4. Well? Is this "misinformation" according to the left? Is this the cause of the tens of thousands of severe reactions reported on covid vaccines and linked to the thousands of deaths? Is this the reason vaccinated are getting sick????? If the science was settled(which should never happen) why are we now having to wear masks???? The inventor of the technology was a woman. Katalin Kariko’s work in mRNA is the basis of the Covid-19 vaccine https://fintechzoom.com/fintech_news_nasdaq-mrna/katalin-karikos-work-in-mrna-is-the-basis-of-the-covid-19-vaccine/ Katalin Kariko’s work in mRNA is the basis of the Covid-19 vaccine Karikó has spent decades of her career researching the therapeutic possibilities of mRNA, a component of DNA that is considered to be one of the main building blocks of life. Through multiple setbacks, job losses, doubt and a transatlantic move, Karikó stood by her conviction: That mRNA could be used for something truly groundbreaking. Now, that work is the basis of the Covid-19 vaccine. Eventually, Karikó and her former colleague at the University of Pennsylvania, Drew Weissman, developed a method of utilizing synthetic mRNA to fight disease that involves changing the way the body produces virus-fighting material, she explained on Fintech Zoom’s “Cuomo Prime Time.” That discovery is now the basis of the Covid-19 vaccine, and some have said both Weissman and Karikó, now a senior vice president of the Germany-based BioNTech, deserve a Nobel Prize.
  5. One of the problem is that there is nothing original about the MyPillow. It is shredded up foam in a pillowcase. I bought a Serta knockoff of the MyPillow for $17 at TJMaxx. $49-$59 for piece of foam put through a shredder. I don't think so. Most of the companies said that the MyPillow didn't sell very well, and hasn't for a long time.
  6. Fred Trump is named among those taken in during a late May "battle" in which "1,000 Klansmen and 100 policemen staged a free-for-all." At least two officers were hurt during the event, after which the Klan's activities were denounced by the city's Police Commissioner, Joseph A. Warren
  7. This is funny. Is there a district which only has 6 eligible voters, and only 3 of them voted??? https://www.sgtreport.com/2020/12/breaking-bombshell-mi-judge-grants-attorney-matt-deperno-permission-to-release-results-of-forensic-examination-on-16-dominion-voting-machines-in-antrim-co-video/ Dominion’s vote totals showed 663 people voted in a district where there were only 6 eligible voters and only 3 of those 6 actually voted. Somehow, Dominion added 660 additional votes to the final tally. (Second image) Also, they haven't been able to prove anything strange going on with the federal or state elections, but they think they have found some issues with the local school board election.
  8. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree: 1927 news report: Donald Trump's dad arrested in KKK brawl with cops MATT BLUM 9:26 AM WED SEP 9, 2015 According to a New York Times article published in June 1927, a man with the name and address of Donald Trump's father was arraigned after Klan members attacked cops in Queens, N.Y. In an article subtitled "Klan assails policeman", Fred Trump is named among those taken in during a late May "battle" in which "1,000 Klansmen and 100 policemen staged a free-for-all." At least two officers were hurt during the event, after which the Klan's activities were denounced by the city's Police Commissioner, Joseph A. Warren
  9. They have shown the entire statement on video. You should click the links in your quote. This is where YOUR link took me: https://www.businessinsider.com/trumps-history-of-support-from-white-supremacist-far-right-groups-2020-9 Trump has repeatedly been endorsed by white supremacist groups and other far-right extremists, and they've looked to him as a source of encouragement In one of the most infamous moments of his presidency, Trump in August 2017 blamed "many sides" for deadly neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville. The president said there were "very fine people" on "both sides." Trump and his allies have since claimed that Democrats and the media have embellished his remarks after the white nationalist rally, but what he said is on video.
  10. I think she knows a Nazi when she sees one. Eva Geiringer was born in Vienna to a Jewish family. Shortly after the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, her family emigrated to Belgium and finally to the Netherlands. She lived in the same apartment block in Amsterdam as Anne Frank, and the girls, only a month apart in age, were sometimes playmates from ages 11 to 13. In 1942, both girls went into hiding to avoid the Nazi effort to capture the Jews of Amsterdam. In May 1944, Schloss's family was captured by the Nazis after being betrayed by a double agent in the Dutch underground, and transported to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camps. Her father and brother did not survive the ordeal, but she and her mother were barely alive when they were freed in 1945 by Soviet troops. They returned to Amsterdam, and during that time, Schloss and her mother renewed their friendship with Otto Frank, who was at that time contending with the loss of his wife and children, and the discovery of his daughter Anne's diary. In November 1953, Schloss's mother Elfriede (1905–1998) married Otto Frank. She was awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2012 Queen's New Years Honours List for her services to Education through the Anne Frank Trust.

  12. According to Trump, the president has total authority over pipelines. Biden can rescind at will. From Trump's mouth: https://apnews.com/article/08ccbaa6e67f41318f78a0d838459b8f WASHINGTON (AP) — Eager to jump-start the stalled Keystone XL oil pipeline and other energy projects, President Donald Trump has acted to assert executive power over pipelines and such infrastructure. Trump issued a new permit for Keystone XL and insisted this exercise of presidential authority was not subject to judicial review. Then he signed an executive order clarifying that the president alone has the power to grant permits for cross-border projects such as pipelines
  13. What Trump giveth; Biden can take away. Apparently, Trump approved by executive order; and Biden rescinded by executive order. Obama rejected the application by TransCanada (now TC Energy Corp.) a few weeks later, saying Congress gave him insufficient time, but he allowed the company to reapply, which deferred the decision until after he was re-elected. Obama later rejected the application, President Donald Trump approved it, and Biden revoked the approval.
  14. 2 Men Charged With Assaulting Brian Sicknick, Cop Who Died After Capitol Riot Julian Elie Khater, 32, of Pennsylvania and George Pierre Tanios, 39, of West Virginia were arrested Sunday https://www.huffpost.com/entry/capitol-insurrection-two-men-charged-brian-sicknick_n_604f77ccc5b636ed337c8a0b Khater and Tanios are charged with nine counts, including assaulting U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick with a deadly weapon. Sicknick died as a result of the riot, though authorities have not determined his exact cause of death. Khater and Tanios are also charged with assaulting another Capitol police officer and a D.C. police officer with a deadly weapon, as well as with civil disorder and obstruction of a congressional proceeding. The charges are punishable by up to 20 years in prison, the Post reported. Surveillance footage of the riot shows Khater and Tanios “working together to assault law enforcement officers with an unknown chemical substance by spraying officers directly in the face and eyes,” according to an FBI search warrant filed Sunday. Sicknick was sprayed with bear spray during the attack.
  15. This company is having a terrible time finding staff. They, finally, told me I was getting a raise. They started offering " sign on bonuses" and bonuses for people who work more hours. I don't need the work or money. It is a fun job in which I get to choose where I want to go. I only work about 10 hours a week. The other clients are places I don't want to go. Heavy lifting, cleaning up incontinence messes, dealing with dementia, etc. There is a lot of hard, nasty work in home care. I just choose not to do it. Nice or nasty work; we all get paid the same. Which means that the low paying nasty work just doesn't get done. 4 hours lifting, bathing, and cleaning up after a disabled person; or the same pay for working a cash register in a convenience store. It is simply put; if you can't get people, pay them more.
