  1. A common sense comment from a Norwegian:

    “I’m from Norway.

    Yes, we are opening up, and it’s about time. But there is no need to vaccinate anyone and have never been.

    206 people are dead after been vaccinated in Norway. 2700 people have serious side effects after 9 months with vaccines in our country.

    We can compare that to 850 dead related to covid after 19 months of covid.

    The whole vaccine-project was a failure. It is not worth all those dead by the vaccines and will never be.

    I’m not vaccinated of course and about 2 million other people (out of 5,5 million citizens) in Norway resisted the vaccines and are not fully vaccinated.

    The goverments are now going for the kids. But many people in Norway are standing up for the kids to not get vaccinated.

    We should never have accepted those under-tested and clearly dangerous vaccines in the first hand.

    Now we must work hard to help keeping the kids away from them.

    Someday somebody will have to answer for this crime. Worldwide.”

    “Norway will end all COVID-19-related restrictions starting Saturday, Sept. 25, the government announced, joining a growing list of countries and states that have removed pandemic curbs.

    “It is 561 days since we introduced the toughest measures in Norway in peacetime … Now the time has come to return to a normal daily life,” Prime Minister Erna Solberg told a news conference on Friday.

    The virus can now be considered as one of several respiratory illnesses with seasonal variation, said Geir Bukholm, the assistant director for the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, according to local media. In Norway, COVID-19 has been classified as a generally dangerous disease, but the official classification could change soon, he said.

    “We are now in a new phase where we must look at the coronavirus as one of several respiratory diseases with seasonal variation,” Bukholm told news outlet VG, referring to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

    “Effort to spread discredited Russia collusion theory welcomed by McCain Senate panel, memos show

    Armed Services panel secretly fought court battle this summer to quash subpoena seeking records of contacts with ex-FBI official Daniel Jones and liberal-funded The Democracy Integrity Project nonprofit.”

    https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/effort-spread-discredited-russia-collusion-theory

    “he efforts to disseminate a now-discredited theory that the Trump campaign had secret computer communications with the Kremlin extended beyond the FBI, CIA, and State Department to the U.S. Senate.

    Under the late Sen. John McCain, the Armed Services Committee engaged a former FBI official and his progressive-funded nonprofit to produce a report on the matter, according to court records obtained by Just the News.

    The Senate committee, now under Democrats’ control, successfully waged a secret federal court battle this summer to quash a subpoena that would have forced one of its staffers, Thomas Kirk McConnell, to turn over documents and testify about his dealings with former FBI analyst Dan Jones and his nonprofit, The Democracy Integrity Project, the records show.

    A spokesman for George Soros confirms the progressive megadonor was one of the financial backers of The Democracy Integrity Project. Tax records show the group raised more than $7 million in donations in 2017 and hired Fusion GPS — the same firm that produced the debunked Steele dossier for Hillary Clinton’s campaign — to pursue allegations of foreign interference in elections.

    The episode, recounted in hundreds of pages of federal and D.C. Superior court records, provides extraordinary insight into how current and former government officials in multiple branches of government were able to sustain a Russia collusion theory on artificial life support for years after the FBI first dispelled it.

    The legal skirmish with the Senate also provides new context to allegations filed last week by Special Counsel John Durham, who indicted a former DOJ lawyer named Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI during his efforts to peddle the same debunked story about the Trump campaign, a computer server at the Alfa Bank in Moscow and the Kremlin. Sussmann was being paid by Hillary Clinton’s campaign when he pitched the allegations to the bureau, court records show. He has pleaded not guilty.

    The FBI, the Russia collusion probe Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and now Durham have all concluded the Alfa Bank allegations had no merit. “It’s not true,” Mueller testified in 2019.”

    “How did it work?

    George Soros personally paid for an investigator, former FBI analyst Dan Jones, to frame Trump through his political organization called The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP).

    A Soros spokesman told The Hill in 2019 that the billionaire philanthropist wrote a sizable check from his personal funds in fall 2017 to TDIP in hopes it would continue “investigation and research into foreign interference in American elections and European elections.” That spokesman said Soros later learned that Fusion and Steele, who had previously worked for the Clinton campaign, had done some work for TDIP.

    They all worked together to destroy Trump by smearing him with the fake scandal.

    Soros infused his TDIP group in to continue “the work started under the Clinton campaign by Fusion GPS and former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele seeking to link Trump to Russia collusion. Its tax filings show it raised $7 million in 2017 to start its work.”

    It was par for the course for Soros. Stories of Soros’s meddling in elections around the world are legion. When he’s not tanking markets or creating fake revolutions, he and his minions are opening borders, destroying reputations, and making the world safer for assisted suicide, hard drugs, and released inmates to prey upon the law abiding.

    Solomon and Smith uncovered the Soros effort when the Senate committee went to court to quash a subpoena meant to get a look at the inner workings of the conspiracy by putting Senate staffer Thomas Kirk McConnell under oath. The committee fought in federal court all summer to keep out of the public domain documents and testimony about the scam.”

  12. Tychicus — a quick google told me over 100 Norwegians died by the end of March due to the Covid vaccine. All of them were over 75 and had underlying health problems. In Canada 0.008% of all vaccinations resulted in serious adverse affects and most were over 80. The vaccine is incredibly safe for the average person. My parents, 94 and 85, had no side effects (although my dad laughed when I asked if he had any sore muscles the next day; I’m 94 of course I have sore muscles).

    Norway has a 68% vaccination rate so relaxing restrictions would naturally follow. They have a 3% infection rate compared to the US at 13% and only 19 in serious condition. Most countries impose restrictions when hospitals are overwhelmed.

  14. I’m not too shocked at the content of the high school novels. In an attempt to be relevant and current, many novels have some content — LGBQT, abuse, etc — that some may find objectionable. I have a set in my classroom which has some explicit scenes and its central theme is date rape. I haven’t used it in my current school because it wouldn’t go over well but did use it in a previous school. It was extremely well written. There’s some Victorian novels with worse content, this is nothing new

    The Border Patrol picture is horrid. It does not conjure up a false narrative rather an old narrative of slave patrols. You can spin it anyway you want it just looks bad.

    Biden is mocking Modi’s control of the Indian media who are afraid of saying bad things about him. I’m not sure how it can be construed differently

    Sold to them by local transit authorities, which by the way, also govt.

  19. The ads were created by a private agency for a legal business offering a legal service. The gov’t agencies have no choice but to accept them — they can’t refuse ads on the basis of morality. Once we go down that road, gov’t agencies can be arbitrary referees of morality, good taste, and legitimacy. If one gov’t bureaucrat judges OK Cupid ads to be offensive than another bureaucrat can judge a pro life ad as too graphic…. and on and on it goes. I could barely see the ads but it doesn’t appear any worse than the beer and cologne ads I saw as a kid watching hockey not too mention whiskey ads in magazines.

  21. Since you won’t do your own research….

    Several of these clearly apply to the ads in question above, which the video shows are clearly sexual in nature.

    “B. Prohibited Advertising
    Notwithstanding the foregoing, the MTA will not accept any advertisement for display in
    or on the Property if it falls within one or more of the following categories:
    1. Promotes or opposes a political party, or promotes or opposes any ballot
    referendum or the election of any candidate or group of candidates for federal, state, judicial, or local government offices.
    2. Is political in nature, including but not limited to advertisements that either:
    a. Are directed or addressed to the action, inaction, prospective action or policies
    of a governmental entity, except as permitted in Sections IV.A.2–IV.A.3 of
    this Policy; or
    b. Prominently or predominately advocate or express a political message,
    including but not limited to an opinion, position, or viewpoint regarding
    disputed economic, political, moral, religious or social issues or related
    matters, or support for or opposition to disputed issues or causes.
    3. Is false, misleading, or deceptive.
    4. Promotes unlawful or illegal goods, services, or activities, or involves other
    unlawful conduct.
    5. Implies or declares an endorsement by the MTA of any service, product, or point
    of view.
    6. Encourages or depicts unsafe behavior with respect to MTA’s transportation
    operations, such as failure to comply with normal safety precautions in awaiting, boarding, riding
    upon or debarking from MTA vehicles, or is otherwise directly adverse to the commercial,
    administrative or operational interests of the MTA as a business.
    7. Depicts or describes in a patently offensive manner sexual or excretory activities
    so as to satisfy the definition of obscene material as contained in New York Penal Law § 235.00,
    as such provision may be amended, modified, or supplemented from time to time.
    8. Contains material, which, if sold or loaned to a minor for monetary consideration
    with knowledge of its character and content, would give rise to a violation of New York Penal
    Law § 235.21, which prohibits the dissemination of indecent material to minors, as such
    provision may be amended, modified, or supplemented from time to time.
    9. Contains material, which, if displayed with knowledge of its character and
    content, would give rise to a violation of New York Penal Law § 245.11, which prohibits the
    public display of offensive sexual material, as such provision may be amended, modified, or
    supplemented from time to time.
    10. Promotes tobacco or any tobacco-related product or any alcohol product.
    4
    11. Contains an image of a person who appears to be a minor in sexually suggestive
    dress, pose, or context.
    12. Contains material the display of which the MTA reasonably foresees would
    imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace, and so harm,
    disrupt, or interfere with safe, efficient, and orderly transit operations.
    13. Contains material that demeans or disparages an individual or group of
    individuals. For purposes of determining whether an advertisement contains such material, the
    MTA will determine whether a reasonably prudent person, knowledgeable of the MTA’s
    ridership and using prevailing community standards, would believe that the advertisement
    contains material that is abusive to, or debases the dignity of, an individual or group of
    individuals.
    14. Contains sexually explicit material that appeals to the prurient interest in sex or is
    so violent, frightening, or otherwise disturbing as to reasonably be deemed harmful to minors.
    15. Promotes an escort service or sexually oriented business.
    C. Additional Provisions Relating to Advertisements”

  24. In the policy only numbers 7 and 9 are close to applying here and as I said; I’ve seen far more explicit ads advertising beer and whiskey. Personally I think that list gives bureaucrats far too much control over speech. I may be a leftist but I don’t want the gov’t judging what is moral.

    Democracy thrives under public education. In immigrant societies it is especially necessary as it provides a common social framework despite the diversity of the student body. Privatizing education will have similar results to privatizing health care — unequal and mostly poorer results, which is harmful to a democracy. As for parents — they are already incredibly influential in elementary schools. I’ve had principals bend over backwards to please parents simply bc they feared a call to the superintendent. Parental influence however demands time and energy and most parents don’t have it. The last two years have demonstrated to me how important the physical classroom and teacher is to most students. Very few parents were involved during online schooling when they had the chance, most kids learned far less and even more importantly were happy to be back in school.
