Thursday Newsfeed: A Proverbial Rump— er, Dump Cake of Info

At some point, once they’ve got you spellbound watching them juggling all those balls, they begin pitching them at your head in hopes of splitting your skull wide open.

It’s where we are.

About that Facebook “whistleblower” — Nah, not so much…

Josh Feldman: Glenn Greenwald Says Frances Haugen Isn’t a ‘Brave Whistleblower’ Like Snowden or Assange (w/VIDEO)

“I find this whole narrative about her being a brave whistleblower — I question both the bravery part and the whistleblower part.”

“What is courageous about what she did?” he asked. “She’s being treated like a foreign dignitary, like a member of the royal court by the media and in Washington. I’ve actually worked with brave whistleblowers before, they end up prosecuted or imprisoned or in exile, like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, people who actually reveal secrets that we didn’t know before.”

“She hasn’t told us anything we didn’t already know about Facebook,” he claimed. “She’s just like this vessel for saying that the power of Facebook should be preserved, it should just be transferred from those corporate monopolists at Facebook to the U.S. government, which happens to be run by the Democratic party.”

Ingraham asked if this smacks of “the approach that China takes to dissent.”

“There are universal traits of every censor and every culture and in every historical period, one of which is which they assure you that the reason they have to repress information is to protect the greater good,” Greenwald said…

DM: PCR test kit orders DOUBLED in Wuhan seven months BEFORE first reported Covid case in fresh evidence that China covered up early spread

  • Analysis of open-source data shows money spent on PCR tests and machines doubled in Hubei province in 2019, months before first Covid case was reported
  • Significantly more PCR contracts were also issued in 2019 compared to 2018 
  • Spike began in May 2019, seven months before first official cases in December
  • It is the latest piece in body of evidence that Covid was spreading much earlier than thought, with early infections covered up

Nebraska Medicine: You asked, we answered: Do the COVID-19 vaccines contain aborted fetal cells?

Answer from infectious disease expert and practicing Catholic James Lawler, MD
No, the COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any aborted fetal cells. However, fetal cell lines – cells grown in a laboratory based on aborted fetal cells collected generations ago – were used in testing during research and development of the mRNA vaccines, and during production of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine…

#AWAKENED Mamma Bears and Papa Bears:

Christopher F. Rufo: Biden Criminalizes CRT Dissent: The administration has mobilized the FBI against parents who oppose critical race theory.

The purpose of mobilizing the FBI is not only to monitor dissent but to subdue it. The suggestion that parents might be engaging in ‘domestic terrorism’ is designed to suppress speech and assembly and to justify the further federalization of education policy…
