  1. Congress Blocks School Choice in New Stimulus Package

    https://reason.com/2020/12/22/congress-blocks-school-choice-in-new-stimulus-package/

    “Even as the pandemic has exposed the desperate need for disruptions to the calcified public school system, Congress just voted to restrict some of the very creativity that’s sorely needed.”

    “Governors are prohibited from using emergency school funding to give families more education options, thanks to a new provision inserted in the 5,600-page bill that Congress passed (without having time to read it) on Monday night.

    The new stimulus package includes $2.75 billion for the Governors Emergency Education Relief (GEER) fund, a program established by the earlier stimulus bill passed in March, but it comes with new restrictions on how that money can be used. Seemingly in response to the fact that several governors used the first round of GEER funding to launch or expand school choice programs, the new stimulus bill explicitly excludes “vouchers, tuition tax credit programs, education savings accounts, scholarship programs, or tuition assistance programs for elementary and secondary education.”

    Because why should parents have more educational options for their kids at a time when many traditional public schools are refusing to reopen, right?”

  2. Fraudi says you can’t handle the truth.

    “Fauci Admits He Lied Because ‘Country Wasn’t Ready’ To Hear The Truth”

    “Dr. Anthony Fauci reportedly said in a phone interview that he has been deliberately changing his public statements regarding the COVID-19 pandemic because he didn’t think people were ready to hear his true beliefs, according to the New York Times.

    Fauci has been slowly increasing the number of Americans he says need to be vaccinated for the U.S. to reach “herd immunity” in public statements, the New York Times reported Thursday morning. He reportedly told the Times he has done so “partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.””

    “Esquire names Jake Tapper, a Russiagate conspiracy theorist who suppressed Hunter Biden bombshell, ‘King of Truth’

    Jake Tapper, famous for pushing the now-debunked Russia collusion hoax, was named “The King of Truth” by Esquire Magazine.”

    —-

    “Of CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who notable has not told the truth about a great many things, Esquire writes “In the time between America voting in the 2020 presidential election and the results being known (which, in true 2020 fashion, went on forever) people around the world watching CNN were calmed by the steady voice and fine jaw of one Jake Tapper.

    “As one of several of the network’s reporters who gave literal meaning to the job of ‘anchor’ during a truly weird week, Tapper kept those nervously watching in Pennsylvania or Paris, LA or London, grounded and sane.

    “In the days following the result Tapper and his co-hosts alternated between snatches of sleep and holding the Trump administration’s feet to the fire by showing the receipts against every wild claim being made. Undoubtedly the humble JT would want this award given instead to Gritty: the Philadelphia Flyer’s chaotic orange mascot from his home city who danced in the streets when the news broke of Donald Trump’s defeat.”

    Tapper, who told Americans that “Christmas is not going to be possible,” claimed that there should be consequences for Trump supporters changing his tune only days later, and had to delete information he’d posted about Trump supporters targeting Biden supporters when it turned out to be untrue, is not well-known as a teller of truth.

    Tapper’s work on the fraud that was Russiagate has also been well-documented.

    In April 2019, after it began to become apparent that the allegations that President Trump had colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election were unfounded, Tapper backed his network, and his claims.”

    “Hospital Workers Start to ‘Turn Against Each Other’ to Get Vaccine”

    “At NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, one of the most highly regarded hospitals in New York City, a rumor spread last week that the line for the coronavirus vaccine on the ninth floor was unguarded and anyone could stealthily join and receive the shot.

    Under the rules, the most exposed health care employees were supposed to go first, but soon those from lower-risk departments, including a few who spent much of the pandemic working from home, were getting vaccinated.

    The lapse, which occurred within 48 hours of the first doses arriving in the city, incited anger among staff members — and an apology from the hospital.”

    “U.S. Supreme Court Pushes Off Pennsylvania Case Until After Inauguration Day

    Jonathan Turley: “Inaugurations are like cats: it is hard to get either to walk backwards.”

    “During my round up of post-election news on December 21, 2020, I noted a new filing regarding Pennsylvania:

    First, the Trump campaign has filed a Petition for A Writ of Certiorari, and related Motion for expedited consideration, with the U.S.Supreme Court. The Petition asks SCOTUS to overturn Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions regarding election procedure. The case can’t change the outcome of the election, because even without PA, Biden still would have sufficient electoral college votes to win. It’s hard to say what SCOTUS will do because many of the procedural problems of prior suits are absent, but it’s also coming up on the January 6 congressional acceptance of the electors. I don’t know why this wasn’t brought weeks ago.

    The court docket reflects that the response to the Petition is due January 22, 2021.

    That is two days after the Inauguration.

    Fox News notes this could make the case moot:

    The justices this week set a reply deadline for Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and the other respondents named in the case of Jan. 22. The campaign had asked for the Supreme Court to order those on the other side of the litigation to respond by Wednesday and have reply briefs from the Trump campaign submitted by Thursday. It also asked the court to rule by Jan. 6. But the court did not oblige.”

    “Nashville bombing ‘person of interest’, 63, gave house raided by FBI to a California woman, 29, for FREE last month: Feds investigate mysterious property deal and continue search for motive in Christmas Day attack

    Explosion occurred on 2nd Avenue in Nashville’s downtown at 6.40am on Christmas morning; three people were injured and severe damage was reported

    Cops had been called to the area a short time before the blast amid reports of a shooting

    However, when they arrived at the scene they discovered a parked RV playing a recording which claimed the vehicle would explode

    The incident has led investigators on a wild chase to determine the identity of the RV’s owner

    On Saturday, reports surfaced that local man Anthony Quinn Warner was a person of interest

    He reportedly owned a white RV similar to the one which exploded, and federal agents were seen outside his house

    Now, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal he gave his house for free last month

  7. I saw another physician interviewed on Fox who pointed out that we also are getting some natural immunity numbers multiplying quickly now, especially with these big surges in cases; so those will add to the vaccine numbers (so 90% not really “needed”?), making it possible to start seeing a growing ‘herd immunity’ and improvement in as short as 3 months.

    It’s all somewhat guess work, we will have to wait to see where we’re at in 3-6-9 months from now. It’s bound to get better that what we’ve got right now, thats’ for sure.

  8. I’ve heard anywhere from 70-90% for “herd immunity.” We’ll know it when we reach it, when the numbers start subsiding significantly.

    The good news is that the vaccines are rolling out quickly so far.

  9. Let’s see… the FBI show up very quickly in Nashville. The same FBI that was deeply involved in and then regularly stonewalled the investigation during the Russia collusion hoax, sat on Hunter Biden’s laptop for over a year, didn’t move on all the election irregularities, among many other questionable acts… yet here they are, ready to pin blame for the Nashville explosion on another random, conservative white guy (Richard Jewell, anyone?).

    What about that missile, just before the explosion? What was actually in that AT&T building? A lot of questions need to be answered…

  10. From a Facebook post today:

    NASHVILLE – Jay Bonnie Bea

    “AT&T got a contract to do forensic audit on Dominion voting machines and those machines were being moved to Nashville this past week.

    The former owner of the AT&T building in Nashville, William Kennard, is a board member for Cerberus Capital Management and AT&T…. He also was Bill Clinton’s FCC chair, and Obama’s Ambassador to the EU.

    Dominion voting is owned by Cerberus Capital Management…. Cerberus is run by Staple Street Execs. Joe Biden’s Brother in Law, Steven Owens, is the cofounder of Staple Street Execs along with William Kennard (mentioned above).

    Super Computer in TN was connected to the AT&T internet in NASHVILLE…. yesterday evening the Cumberland river cooling system was compromised due to internet outage and Supercomputer fried…..

    If you don’t know, “Kraken” is a reference to a supercomputer former prosecutor, Sidney Powell, has been talking about.

    So, the explosion “just happened” to be at the AT&T location where they “just so happen” to control the cooling system for the super computer and house the dominion voting machines and drives for forensic audit…

    Does it make sense now why no lives were lost? Does it make sense now why the FBI task lead couldn’t even put together a coherent sentence in the press conference yesterday? Does it make sense why the mayor was making light of the situation, almost laughing yesterday?”

  13. More on the Nashville incident…

    https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/nashville-bombing-directed-energy-weapon-caught-on-camera-before-explosion

    “The investigation by law enforcement is ongoing. But there are serious questions arising about this incident, and there is already empirical physical evidence proving something much bigger took place in this situation than we’re being told.

    It seems clear the AT&T data center was the target of this attack. It seems whoever attacked the data center WANTED to disrupt communications in the US. They also WANTED to do something to the NSA telephone recording and data collection abilities.

    But police report that the RV had a loudspeaker and a recorded message telling people to evacuate. I know of no bomber who ever did that.

    One possibility is maybe a “deep state” perpetrator needed to do this, but was warned not to cause innocent casualties????? Who ELSE has access to directed energy weapons and would also NEED to destroy evidence in a data collection facility?

    Another possibility is that a foreign nation attacked us. Again. With the same weaponry repeatedly seen used to start wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington State.

    GEORGIA RUNOFF ELECTION – Jan. 5

    I’m going to reveal something now that will make a lot of people angry. Inside Nashville AT&T Data Center, Room 641A is the specific data collection point operated by AT&T for the National Security Agency (NSA). It is part of the Warrantless interception perpetrated by government under the PATRIOT ACT.

    What part of the United States does this particular room cover? Georgia.

    By damaging this data center, it will make it almost impossible to monitor the upcoming Runoff Election for US Senate within the State of Georgia scheduled for January 5.

    Whoever did this may have wanted to prevent anyone from repeating the capture of phony voting tabulation which was caught during the November 3 Presidential election. As most rational people already realize, that November 3 election was stolen by Democrats to illegitimately claim the Presidency for Joe Biden. Now they seem to want to steal the US Senate too.

    So either the “Deep State” is trying to hide their upcoming theft of the Georgia US Senate runoff election, or perhaps they’re on the run, trying to destroy evidence? The other possibility is that a foreign power is attacking US infrastructure to hamper communications before they . . . what . . . . attack?

    Either way, this Nashville incident has trouble written all over it, either from a Deep State, false flag or from a foreign power trying to weaken the nation and hamper communications.”

  14. Tychichus, sentences like this in your link at 3:47 don’t help to take the information seriously: “As most rational people already realize, that November 3 election was stolen by Democrats to illegitimately claim the Presidency for Joe Biden.”

    “Most rational people” is very loaded language. I’m a very rational person, not at all in favor of a Joe Biden presidency, and I believe there was fraud. But was there enough fraud to change the election results? I have no idea. Certainly the case hasn’t been proven. This is sloppy argumentation.

  15. Sounds accurate to me.

    And you admitted there was fraud Cheryl, you’re just unsure how much. Some have read more on this and are more convinced than you that the fraud was widespread in the swing states, where it mattered most. That doesn’t make them wrong, just more informed on the details.

  16. Cheryl: Those are, of course, Hal Turner’s words, and I certainly understand your point. However, the case hasn’t been fully proven only b/c our judicial system and certain state legislatures haven’t allowed it to be proven, but the evidence is overwhelming and will be more fully revealed in the coming days.
