Democrats are literally C*mm*n*sts and abolish the landlord class

Despite the fact that lockdowns ended months ago and there are more than enough jobs available, Biden wants to continue to force landlords to allow people to live on their private property rent-free forever.

The Biden administration on Tuesday announced a new ban on evictions for many renters just days after the White House allowed a nationwide moratorium to expire on Saturday, infuriating progressive House Democrats who warned that millions of Americans could lose their homes.

As President Biden hinted at during his Tuesday afternoon news conference, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention drafted a new eviction moratorium aimed at protecting tenants in counties with "substantial and high levels of community transmission" of COVID-19. Over 90% of the U.S. population lives in the affected areas, sources told The Associated Press.

The two-month moratorium expires Oct. 3.

"The emergence of the delta variant has led to a rapid acceleration of community transmission in the United States, putting more Americans at increased risk, especially if they are unvaccinated," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said. "This moratorium is the right thing to do to keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings where COVID-19 spreads. It is imperative that public health authorities act quickly to mitigate such an increase of evictions, which could increase the likelihood of new spikes in SARS-CoV-2 transmission. Such mass evictions and the attendant public health consequences would be very difficult to reverse."

Republican Party’s civil war in Nevada: Extremists vs. Violent right wing domestic terrorists

https://www.rawstory.com/gop-s-civil-war-in-nevada-erupts-into-ugly-scene-as-far-right-extremists-try-to-bully-their-way-into-a-takeover/

There is a civil war brewing within the Republican Party in Nevada. According to The Las Vegas Sun, tensions began to rise when members of the Clark County Republican Party (CCRP) expressed concern about the state party's director Michael McDonald who is accused of recruiting members of the far-right group The Proud Boys to run for public office.

The move was reportedly an effort to increase the extremist presence in the state's political party. On July 20, CCRP members held a meeting to select officers. However, that meeting was interrupted when individuals affiliated with The Proud Boys crashed it. The publication offered a clear depiction of how the scene erupted.

"It was an ugly scene with echoes of the Jan. 6 riot, except instead of Big Lie insurrectionists trying to take over the Capitol, they were trying to bully their way into a takeover of the county party's moderate leadership," the publication noted.

It added, "Egged on by the Proud Boy members, the crowd broke into angry chants of 'Stop the steal' and 'Let us in.' Security officers had to face down crowd members rushing the meeting room entrance before a small army of Metro officers arrived to quell the situation and break up the crowd."

The latest news follows the CCRP's previous cancellation of a meeting due to fears of a Proud Boys insurgency. Back in May, The Daily Beast reported about the far-right extremist group's targeting of the CCRP. At the time, Stephen Sliberkraus, the CCRP vice chair, spoke during a press conference where he highlighted concerns about neo-Nazi content from the far-right group.

Police Arrest Trans Internet Personality ‘Chris Chan’ Who Allegedly Admitted To Raping His Mom

Video has emerged of Chris Chan being arrested earlier this afternoon

Christine Chandler, born Christopher Chandler and better known as his Internet moniker Chris Chan, has been arrested following reports that he admitted to engaging in sexual intercourse with his 80-year-old mother, who is widely believed to be suffering from some form of dementia, and thus may not have been able to consent.
Chandler, who has been staying at a hotel in Richmond, Virginia since police served an order of protection preventing him from returning to the family home or having any contact with his 80-year-old mother, was recorded during a live stream by Killstream host and Ralph Retort editor-in-chief Ethan Ralph being escorted away from the hotel in handcuffs by local police officers. It is unclear what, if anything, Chandler has been charged with. Numerous clips from the video have already surfaced on social media.
As National File originally reported, In a nearly 10 minute audio recording posted to Kiwi Farms, the person identified as 39-year-old Chandler appears to admit to having repeated sexual intercourse and contact with his 80-year-old mother since June of this year, and at one point explains that “We’ve been doing it every third night and the first night was on June 27”. The person identified as Chandler explained that they approached Barbara Chandler “with care and caution” in “a timed approach” that “just branched out slow and steady” until they let Barbara “make the first move, and she wanted to do it.”

Researchers say 12 people responsible for most vaccine misinformation online

No.901846 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
https://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/national/researches-say-12-people-responsible-for-most-vaccine-misinformation-online

As the delta variant continues to spread, experts say vaccine rates are not keeping up.

It has taken a month for the number of fully vaccinated Americans to get from 47% to almost 49.8% after vaccination rates rose dramatically in the first few months of its availability, and experts think much of that can be attributed to misinformation about the vaccine that has spread online.

The nonprofit called the Center for Countering Digital Hate did a recent study that found 65% of vaccine misinformation on social media sites came from 12 influencers they dubbed as the “disinformation dozen.”

After analyzing more than 815,000 Facebook posts, the group found that on Facebook alone the “disinformation dozen” was responsible for 73% of posts purporting conspiracy theories about the vaccine.

Together, the 12 people have a group following of more than 59 million people.

“They’ve got a lot of sway and a lot of pull because that is how those kinds of ecosystems are set up,” said Dr. Sam Jay, a communications studies professor at Metro State University in Denver. “Convenience is such a good word. It’s easier for us to find those shortcuts [to information]. It’s easier to find someone who does the thinking for us, and so, that’s why we’ve glommed onto these 12 folks because, again, they have credibility. Those are names that we recognize.”

Long Covid causes brain damage;tests show ‘substantial’ drop in intelligence

No.901678 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Between January and December last year, scientists conducted the Great British Intelligence Test that examined the IQ of 81,337 people.

Among that number were 13,000 who had been infected with the virus.

Once the scientists had factored out things like age, sex, language and education level, they found people recovering from Covid saw the biggest decline.

Tasks requiring problem solving, planning and reasoning were harder for them than for people who hadn’t had the virus.

In the worst cases, when people had been on a ventilator to beat the disease, the researchers recorded a seven-point drop in intelligence.

The data was collected together and published in a study called: Cognitive Deficits In People Who Have Recovered From COVID-19′.

It was published in the medical journal the Lancet and involved researchers from Imperial College London, Kings College and the Universities of Cambridge, Southampton and Chicago.

‘These results accord with reports of long-Covid, where ‘brain fog’, trouble concentrating and difficulty finding the correct words are common,’ the authors wrote.

‘The deficits were of substantial effect size for people who had been hospitalised.’
