…the outbreak appears to have entered the fourth and strongest (yet) wave. The latest spurt of infections is fuelled by the second wave in most European nations, the third in the United States, and the tail-end of the first wave in India and South America…
… There have been clear signs for weeks of a third wave of the pandemic in the U.S. as the weather gets colder and the virus has migrated from metropolitan regions to more rural settings. But it was far from certain, at the beginning of October, that the resurgence would surpass that of the summer, even though the figures were climbing far sooner than the timeline of the most promising vaccine trials, one of which was temporarily halted after a volunteer became ill but is set to resume soon…
… With all the talk of the ‘Mark of the Beast’ (MOTB) surrounding the proposed COVID-19 vaccine, I set out to do some research. What I have recently discovered about how these vaccines are formulated has forever put me off of them. Did you know that aborted fetal cells are used to formulate these vaccines? I sure didn’t!
While I was praying last night, I had a horrible thought. What are the spiritual ramifications of taking the cells of another person into our bodies? Could taking these vaccines into our bodies open us up to spiritual attack, perhaps even demonic indwelling? Are we not on some spiritual level participating in the murder of that innocent child by ‘benefiting’ from its flesh?…
Ten years after Julian Assange and Wikileaks published the Iraq War Diaries about the US government and military’s misdeeds in Iraq—the veracity of which has never been challenged—Julian Assange sits in a British prison, awaiting probably extradition to the US to face charges that could result in up to 170 years in a US prison. From Ron Paul at ronpaulinstitute.org:
The purpose of journalism is to uncover truth – especially uncomfortable truth – and to publish it for the benefit of society. In a free society, we must be informed of the criminal acts carried out by governments in the name of the people. Throughout history, journalists have uncovered the many ways governments lie, cheat, and steal – and the great lengths they will go to keep the people from finding out.
Great journalists like Seymour Hersh, who reported to us the tragedy of the Mai Lai Massacre and the horrors that took place at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, are essential.
Ten years ago last week, Julian Assange’s Wikileaks organization published an exposé of US government wrongdoing on par with the above Hersh bombshell stories. Publication of the “Iraq War Diaries” showed us all the brutality of the US attack on Iraq. It told us the truth about the US invasion and occupation of that country. This was no war of defense against a nation threatening us with weapons of mass destruction. This was no liberation of the country. We were not “bringing democracy” to Iraq.
No, the release of nearly 400,000 classified US Army field reports showed us in dirty detail that the US attack was a war of aggression, based on lies, where hundreds of thousands of civilians were killed and injured.
We learned that the US military classified anyone they killed in Iraq as “enemy combatants.” We learned that more than 700 Iraqi civilians were killed for “driving too close” to one of the hundreds of US military checkpoints – including pregnant mothers-to-be rushing to the hospital.
We learned that US military personnel routinely handed “detainees” over to Iraqi security forces where they would be tortured and often killed.
Ten years after Assange’s brave act of journalism changed the world and exposed one of the crimes of the century, he sits alone in solitary confinement in a UK prison. He sits literally fighting for his life, as if he is successfully extradited to the United States he faces 175 years in a “supermax” prison for committing “espionage” against a country of which he is not a citizen.
On the Iraq war we have punished the truth-tellers and rewarded the criminals. People who knowingly lied us into the war like Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, the Beltway neocon “experts,” and most of the media, faced neither punishment nor professional shaming for their acts. In fact, they got off scot free and many even prospered.
Julian Assange explained that he published the Iraq War Diaries because he “hoped to correct some of the attack on truth that occurred before the war, and that continued on since that war officially ended.” We used to praise brave journalists not afraid to take on the “bad guys.” Now we torture and imprison them.
President Trump has made a point of singling out the US attack on Iraq as one of the “stupid wars” that he was committed to ending. But we wouldn’t know half of just how stupid – and evil – it was were it not for the brave actions of Julian Assange and whistleblower Chelsea Manning. Journalism should not be a crime and President Trump should pardon Assange immediately.
… By a vote of 12-3, the court of appeals denied their plea, leaving the nine-day extension in place. Judge James Wynn stressed that all absentee ballots must still be mailed by Election Day, and that the state’s election procedures had previously allowed ballots to be counted as long as they arrived within three days of Election Day.
All that the consent agreement does, Wynn reiterated, is extend that deadline from three days to nine.
Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson dissented from the 4th Circuit’s order, in an opinion joined by two other judges.
Wilkinson complained that federal courts and state election boards are “upend[ing] the set rules” for elections, which are established by state legislatures, and then claiming that their actions are the “new status quo” and cannot be disturbed.
Both sets of filings at the Supreme Court on Thursday made similar arguments, telling the justices that the extension of the deadline for absentee ballots violates the Constitution’s elections clause, which tasks the state legislatures with determining the time, place and manner for federal elections, as well as the Constitution’s equal protection clause, by applying different rules depending on when voters cast their ballots.
Both filings also argued as Moore and Berger put it, that election officials “are disserving North Carolina voters and sowing considerable confusion through their” consent agreement “and ever-changing directives.”
However, the Trump campaign and the RNC sought broader relief than Moore and Berger, asking the court to block not only the extension of the absentee-ballot deadline but also other changes to the state’s election procedures and suggesting that the court treat their request as a petition for review and issue a decision on the merits “as soon as possible.”
Both requests will go to Chief Justice John Roberts, who handles emergency appeals from the 4th Circuit.
Roberts can act on the request alone or, as is more likely, refer it to the full court after first calling for a response.
Election integrity in a vital Midwestern swing state is now in doubt

Election workers in Michigan have been told during their official training classes that they should dispose of ballots, expel poll watchers and count challenged ballots.
The Gateway Pundit reports that election workers were provided with ways in which they can prevent poll watchers doing their jobs in affirming election integrity.
“They have to wear a mask, and they have to stay six feet. That’s important because if you don’t have six feet, they can’t come back there,” an instructor told attendees at the training session.
The instructor then joked about how social distancing guidelines could be used to obfuscate the process, as a person observing these rules cannot see or verify signatures. https://api.banned.video/embed/5f974371fb2c9201aed1fcb5
Patrick Howley joins Owen Shroyer on The Alex Jones Show to break down the evidence behind a top Biden campaign director in Texas sponsoring voter fraud.
“Unless they got really good vision or they brought their binoculars,” the instructor quipped.
The instructor then told election workers to forcibly expel poll watchers from the polling locations if they were insisting on scrutiny of absentee ballots.
“If they make a scene, get ’em up out of there,” she added. “Call the police on ’em.”
The instructor also told election workers to deliberately deceive people by giving those who had absentee ballots stolen a provisional ballot. After the individual requesting the provisional ballot votes – under the belief that his or her vote had been counted – the ballot is destroyed.
The Gateway Pundit’s Brock Simmons elaborated on the situation:
The next part is a bit disturbing, as anyone who has had their absentee ballot stolen or had one issued to a fraudulent person, will not be able to vote. In fairness, this also means that people cannot double vote, but if they intended to do that, then they could just as easily use someone else’s name.
The trainer then says if the person swears they did not vote absentee, to issue that person a provisional ballot, which goes into a special envelope, that eventually just gets thrown out. So the person thinks they are casting their vote, when really it just goes into the garbage.
Even scarier is that these are teenagers working behind the scenes. Any of them can run any ballot they want through the tabulator, or toss them into the provisional stack to be thrown away. And the voter will be none the wiser.
This reporting from a vital swing state casts major doubts about the integrity of the election in Michigan, a crucial battleground state that Trump won in 2016 after decades of Democrat dominance…
…Republican senators Marco Rubio (Fla.), John Cornyn (Texas), and Jim Risch (Idaho) introduced a bipartisan bill Tuesday to designate China’s ongoing human-rights abuses against its Uighur Muslim population as genocide.

On Friday, I wrote about Hunter Biden’s laptop, the October Surprise of the 2020 US presidential election.
On Saturday, October 24, the New York Post (NYP) published a good summary of Biden corruption claims over the past several years.
An excerpt from ‘Biden corruption claims all but confirmed with Hunter emails’ follows, emphases mine.
In 2018, the NYP published a book, Secret Empires.
Since the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop surfaced, the NYP article says:
This material suggests that, despite Joe Biden’s insistence that he knew nothing about his family’s business deals, he was well aware of his son Hunter Biden’s business ventures in China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and elsewhere.
These new troves constitute hard evidence of Biden family corruption, and confirm our reporting dating back to our 2018 book “Secret Empires.”
In 2018, when we first broke the foreign influence scandals that have now engulfed…
