Catholic priests, Orthodox Jews Sue New York’s de Blasio and Cuomo for Violating Religious Rights

A group of Catholic priests and Orthodox Jews are suing NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio for violating their right to religious freedom.

A group of Catholic priests and Orthodox Jews are suing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for violating their right to religious freedom.

In a federal lawsuit, the group accuses the two officials of a “blatant double standard” to discriminate against them.

Per Fox News:

Two Catholic priests — Steven Soos and Nicholas Stamos — and a trio of Orthodox Jewish congregants — Elchanan Perr, Daniel Schonborn, and Mayer Mayerfeld — in Brooklyn, represented by the Thomas More Society, filed the suit in the Northern District of New York after mass protests and looting occurred in the Big Apple following George Floyd’s death.

“Why is a large worship gathering deemed more dangerous than a mass protest, full of shouting, arm-waving people in close proximity to one another?” Christopher Ferrara, Thomas More Society special counsel, told Fox.

“These orders, both the emergency stay-home and reopening plan declarations, clearly discriminate against houses of worship,” Ferrara continued. “They are illegally content-based, elaborate, arbitrary and pseudo-scientific.”

Among many violations cited, the group points out de Blasio ignoring social distancing and the 10-person limit when he didn’t wear a face mask on June 4 while attending and addressing a mass political gathering at New York City’s Cadman Plaza. Days later, in Williamsburg, Hasidic Jewish children were kicked out of a park by a police officer enforcing Cuomo and de Blasio’s 10-person limit on “non-essential gatherings.”

De Blasio in particular has targeted religious people and forced his particular brand of anti-religious hate upon them. The Big Apple mayor has repeatedly sent his police to shut down religious activities.

Indeed, just this week de Blasio sent his cops to chase a small group of Jewish children out of a park even after he approved massive anti-cop, anti-American Black Lives Matter protests only days before.

“It is time to end New York’s experiment in absolute monarchy,” said Ferrara. “We are asking the court to put an end to these unconstitutional executive orders and grant a temporary restraining order against their prejudicial enforcement.”

NBC ‘Doctor’ Whose COVID ‘Recovery’ was a Featured Story Lied About Having the Virus

A “doctor” whose supposed recovery from the coronavirus became a featured NBC series has been exposed as a fraud.

Published

on

A “doctor” whose supposed recovery from the coronavirus became a featured NBC series has been exposed as a fraud after tests proved he never had COVID-19 at all.

NBC made a big series out of the Dr. Joseph Fair’s “recovery” from the coronavirus.

For instance, just last month, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd introduced Fair on his program, saying, “Joining me now is virologist Joseph Fair, who recently recovered from COVID-19 himself.”

“Dr. Fair, let me start with you because I would like you to share a little bit about your recovery from COVID-19. What should Americans take away from your experience?” Todd continued.

Fair went on to say that he is otherwise healthy, but that the coronavirus made him feel “the worst I’ve ever felt.”

“I probably spent 23 our of 24 hours in bed,” Fair exclaimed. “Those people that are young and think they’re invincible or people that just don’t think it’s going to affect them that greatly even if they do get it, I can say that my own experience was the complete opposite.”

But now, tests taken by Dr. Fair show that not only does he not have coronavirus now, he never had it at all.

Now he says that his illness that NBC labeled the coronavirus is a “mystery illness.”

“I had myriad COVID symptoms, was hospitalized in a COVID ward & treated for COVID-related co-morbidities, despite testing negative by nasal swab,” Fair just tweeted.

So, where is NBC’s retraction to its big story of Fair’s fake illness?

Nowhere to be seen, of course.

Coronavirus Deaths Down 86% — So Why Are Media Still Hysterical?

As of July 8, the CDC reported that deaths from COVID-19 had dropped by 86 percent.

Published

on

As of July 8, the CDC reported that deaths from COVID-19 had dropped by 86 percent. And yet, many politicians and the media are still wallowing in hysteria over the virus.

According to the latest numbers, “COVID-involved deaths” peaked n mid-April and have continued a steady decline since

As of July 8, the total number of deaths “involving” COVID-19 in all 50 states and District of Columbia supposedly stands at 114,741, according to NCHS.

“Provisional death counts deliver the most complete and accurate picture of lives lost to COVID-19,” NCHS insisted in its recent report.

“The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) uses incoming data from death certificates to produce provisional COVID-19 death counts,” NCHS wrote.

“Provisional death counts may not match counts from other sources, such as media reports or numbers from county health departments,” NCHS added. “Counts by NCHS often track 1-2 weeks behind other data.”

“While 80 percent of deaths are electronically processed and coded by NCHS within minutes, most deaths by COVID-19 must be coded by a person, which takes an average of 7 days,” NCHS said.

As CNSNews wrote:

According to the NCHS data posted as of July 8, there were 2,287 COVID-involved deaths in the week ending June 20, the most recent week that ended more than two weeks ago. That is an 86 percent drop from the peak week ending April 18, when CDC reported a record 16,394 COVID-involved deaths

And we already know that number is way too high because so many states have lied and inflated their numbers.

Still, even if we simply accept the CDC’s numbers at face value, the numbers of deaths has taken a very sharp decline.

So, why is the media and the Democrat Party still acting as if people are dropping dead by the thousands per minute?

The Media Outright Lied About Hydroxychloroquine Just to Destroy Trump

The media outright lied about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine just to destroy President Donald Trump.

Published

on

The media has spent the last four months outright lying about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine just to destroy President Donald Trump.

Washington D.C. journalist Drew Holden recently took the time to compile a large number of stories built entirely on lies pushed by the left-wing media.

Holden jumped to his Twitter account with an amazing thread that has to be seen to see the lies spread by our sold-out, anti-American media.

He began his July 3 thread explaining:

The only reason today’s news about hydroxychloroquine is so “surprising” is that the media spent months telling us it was deadly to score points against Trump.

Amazing that @CNN is only interested in tying hydroxychloroquine to @realDonaldTrump when it doesn’t work.

Look at these lies. The media is the enemy of the people.

Calif. Gov. Newsom Shuts Down State’s Wineries for July 4th–But Not the Ones HE Owns

CA Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered most of the state’s wineries shut down over but is allowing the ones HE owns to stay open.

Published

on

California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered most of the state’s wineries shut down over his COVID-19 obsession, but curiously enough he is allowing the ones HE owns to stay open.

That isn’t at all shady, huh?

Newsom has been ramping up his draconian lockdowns of the state’s economy over his coronavirus hysteria, and this week, the state’s supreme ruler ordered all wineries to be shuttered for the Independence Day holiday.

But, yeah, he somehow left the ones HE owns remaining open!

The new shutdown order affects 70 percent of the state’s multibillion-dollar wine industry across 19 counties. But he also ruled that the wine businesses in San Diego County, most of the Central Valley, and suburban counties between San Francisco and Sacramento could remain open.

As it turns out, the four wineries Newsom owns just happens to be in Napa County, an area he ruled was suddenly COVID free enough to remain open during the busy July 4th weekend.

That is just by a wild coincidence, we are sure.

Per RedState:

Newsom founded PlumpJack back in 1992 with a family friend, Gordon Getty, starting with a wine store in San Francisco and expanding to the winery a few years later. Eventually they formed the PlumpJack Group, which has multiple wineries, retail stores, restaurants, and a Squaw Valley resort in its portfolio. Its president is Newsom’s sister, Hillary.

His bio on the winery site reads:

“In 1992, Gavin Newsom opened his first business, PlumpJack Wines, combining his passion for wine and his driving entrepreneurial spirit. Over the next decade, the PlumpJack Group began to grow under his leadership to include many of the restaurants, wineries, and retail establishments in the current portfolio. In 2003, Newsom was elected the 42nd Mayor of San Francisco, and in 2019 was sworn in as the Governor of California. He lives with his wife and First Partner, Jennifer Siebel-Newsom, along with their four children in Sacramento, California.”

Granted these businesses are now in a blind trust since he took office.

But that doesn’t matter. After all, he knows damn well that his wineries are in the zone he OK’d to stay open!

But… you know… it’s all about science.

VIDEO: Man DESTROYS County Board Over Dangerous Lockdowns and Foolish Mask Rules

John Ziegler utterly roasted the Ventura County Board of Supervisors for its outrageous lies about masks and its dangerous lockdown orders.

Published

Radio talk host John Ziegler utterly roasted the Ventura County Board of Supervisors for its outrageous lies about masks and its useless and dangerous lockdown orders.

Ziegler was able to get a two-minute slot to speak at the June 23 Board of Supervisors meeting and in that two minutes he flayed the hypocrisy and lies being disgorged by the board to justify their coronavirus rules.

Ventura County didn’t do anything special, either. Their rules were just as bad as nearly every other officious governing body across the U.S.

“After waiting two hours and now getting two minutes, I’ll get right to the point, Ziegler said speaking through his county-mandated medical mask.

“This board is pretending,” he began, “that in the last three months, your emperor, Dr. [Robert] Levin [the Ventura County Health Officer and Medical Director] has not been against a mask declaration. ”

“Now all of a sudden we are pretending that masks are everything, even forcing speakers to use masks,” he continued.

“I would like the board to take a position, Ziegler added. “Was Dr. Levin wrong for those three months [when he opposed mandatory mask wearing]? And if he was this wrong, why has he not been removed? Why has he not been fired for being so catastrophically wrong?”

“Or, do you not really believe he was wrong, you’re just wearing these masks because it is a signal of your great virtue,” he thundered.

“Because for the last three months we have not worn them and Ventura County has done outstandingly well and continues to do outstandingly well because we are not Los Angeles, we are not New York City, we never were going to be any of those things,” he exclaimed.

“Ironically this is one of the few things Dr. Levin was actually right about,” Ziegler went on. “He has been wrong about everything. He is the one that told us we would have four to six hundred hospitalizations a day. He revised that to two for four hundred a day. We still haven’t reached that in one day. We’re barely over two hundred for the entire ordeal that you guys have put us through.”

“We now have a panic of over 51total hospitalizations in a county with eight hospitals! Can you people do mat?” he asked incredulous. “Can you please do basic math, and understand where we are on this? This is not a crisis. You, however, have created one.”

“You, in an effort to prevent all death — and we’ve had 43 deaths — have now ended all relevant life. And you should all be ashamed of yourselves,” Ziegler said pointing to each member of the board. And this will never be forgotten, EVER be forgotten. You will all be held accountable eventually. In this life, or the next. You all better HOPE there’s no Hell, because when you die, that’s where you’re going. And guess what, you’re not going to be dying of COVID, either. Thank you.”

Oh, boy is that dead on.

Wisconsin Mayor Denies COVID Relief Funds to Business Owner Who Attended Freedom Rally

A Wisconsin mayor denied an application for COVID-19 relief money to a business owner because she had attended a freedom rally.

Published

A Wisconsin mayor denied an application for COVID-19 relief money to a business owner because she had attended a freedom rally protesting lockdowns at the state capitol.

Dimple Navratil, co-owner of Dimple’s Fine Imports, which for 21 years has occupied a spot on Main St., in Racine, Wisconsin was twice denied for a loan under the city’s COVID-19 relief funding. And after the second time, Mayor Cory Mason admitted that the denial was based on the fact that the Navratils had attended the April 21 rally to protest the state’s coronavirus lockdowns, the Journal Times reported.

The assistance, which comes from the city’s Small Business Emergency Assistance Fund, is part of $900,000 in grants the city gave out to try and keep businesses from failing during the state lockdowns.

But none of that ended up for Dimple’s Fine Imports, and the Dimples wanted to know why.

“We wanted to know why we were denied and they told us there was not enough funding, but I need a better answer than that because I didn’t understand,” Dimple told the paper. “If I met all the criteria, if I did everything right, why was there not enough money for us?”

Upon a query by the paper, Mayor Mason fully admitted that he was punishing the Navratils because of their politics.

“Participating in mass gatherings outside of our community, such as the rally that was held at the State Capitol — such large gatherings have been linked to cases of COVID-19 around the state — and then returning to our City, only served to put our residents at unnecessary risk and, thus, factored into the funding consideration,” Mason said in an email to the paper.

“I think I’m being denied my First Amendment rights here by the mayor; I think that’s terrible,” Denis Navratil said.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty was also disturbed by the fascist mayor’s actions.

“We are greatly concerned that Racine officials are using government programs to discriminate and punish First Amendment protected speech. We will continue to investigate this matter,” the group said.

The paper gave the mayor another chance to reply, and he did not back down.

“As Mayor, it is my duty to protect the public health of our City’s residents. While I certainly support the rights of free speech and assembly, I cannot in good conscious [sic] send scarce City resources to a person or business that willingly jeopardized public health, especially when they were competing with other businesses who were not flagrantly violating safety measures.”

“If an applicant was openly violating the statewide Safer at Home order and the public health emergency under which the City was operating to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus, that applicant would compete less favorably. When it comes to disbursing discretionary funds aimed at helping businesses who were sacrificing to protect public health, the City is not going to reward business owners who took reckless behaviors that risked the health of our community.”

The same mayor approved all the Black Lives Matter protests in his city, though.

Because, of course he did.

Don’t Believe the Outlandish Claims About the Number of COVID-19 Deaths in the U.S.A.

We are told that there have been more than 121,000 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.A. But is that true? Not by any means is it true.

Published

on

We are told that there have been more than 121,000 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.A. But is that true? Not by any means is it true.

Before we even try to get to the numbers, let’s look at what the Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health recently said. Now, pay strict attention to this because it is telling:

I just want to be clear in terms of the definition of people dying of COVID. So, the case definition is very simplistic. It means that at the time of death it was a COVID-positive diagnosis. So that means if you were in hospice and had already been given, you know, a few weeks to live and then you were also found to have COVID, that would be counted as a COVID death. It means that if, technically, even if you died of a clear alternate cause but you had COVID at the same time it’s still listed as a COVID death. So, everyone that’s listed as a COVID death doesn’t mean that that was the cause of the death, but they had COVID at the time of death.

In other words, the numbers we are hearing do not mean that 121,000 people were actually killed by the coronavirus.

So, why are they so purposefully inflating these numbers?

Follow the money.

As Powerline reports:

That certainly is clarifying. We also know that some doctors have complained about being pressured to list COVID-19 as a cause of death, perhaps because the CARES Act provides a 20% Medicare bonus for COVID patients. And most recorded COVID-19 fatalities are elderly people with one or more co-morbidities.

You got it. They get more money if they inflate the COVID-19 death statistics.

Powerline wraps it up with a nice little bow:

… in all likelihood, the actual Wuhan fatality rate is not much different from a relatively virulent seasonal flu. Every year, the seasonal flu bug kills tens of thousands of Americans. Just two years ago, the CDC says it killed 62,000–and that was without a Medicare spiff or other pressures to build up the numbers. The reality is, I think, that in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, we devastated our economy–which means that we devastated tens or hundreds of millions of lives–needlessly.

When the dust settles, the Wuhan flu will in all likelihood have a fatality rate of less than 0.2%. This compares with an average seasonal flu rate of around 0.1%. Actually, the world has gotten off lucky: the virus that the Chinese Communist Party unleashed on the rest of us was a mild one. The next pandemic could easily involve a virus that is ten times as lethal, or even, possibly, 100 times as lethal. What will we do then? Our crazed reaction to COVID-19 does not inspire confidence that we would be able to deal rationally with a truly lethal virus.

That’s right. The whole thing is all lies aimed at getting money for the medical establishment and power for the politicians.

It is a massive hoax aimed at defrauding us all.
