Triple Flipper In News Cycle

There was a flurry of breaking news on Friday that has many political pundits agreeing that something is shifting inside the halls of power.

Michael Adams, of Natural News, reports the FBI got the ball rolling by leaking to Reuters that the Jan. 6 siege on the Capitol wasn’t planned by anyone, also stating that President Trump, Alex Jones and Roger Stone were cleared of any wrongdoing. Then, in a shocking about-face, the mainstream media flipped on President Biden following the Afghanistan debacle, bashing him at every turn. Says Adams, “ABC called him a liar, but it’s not only that. They’re making Biden look bad now, showing photos and videos that are kind of sad, pathetic looking.  Obviously, the CIA owns the mainstream media and they have told the media to start trashing Biden.”

Finally, Facebook’s council on free speech issued a strong statement disavowing the United Kingdom’s Council for Digital Hate. The organization had previously released a list labeled “The Disinformation Dozen,” regarding the coronavirus vaccines. So what are the odds of these three stories breaking on the same day, less than a week after the Afghan chaos? Adams takes a deeper look with his analysis.

Cities At Greatest Risk

The coronavirus continues its spread through China and surrounding Asian countries. The data increasingly show that this virus is wickedly contagious, especially in crowded environments where population density is high — like the densely-packed buildings in cities. As a frightening example: in Japan, a health worker was infected while inspecting a quarantined cruise ship, despite wearing a hazmat suit and taking standard precautions.

On the more positive side, we are hearing “success” stories from those who have now recovered from the virus. These are mostly folks who had less serious cases, which is around 80% of those infected. But, on the more concerning side, evidence is showing that those who recover may not have immunity from catching the virus again. And, that a second infection could potentially result in a much more serious threat to life.

As usual, we still need more detail before drawing hard conclusions. There are many elements still unknown about this virus — such as why the rate of spread appears much lower outside of China than within. We remain committed to scouring the news and science wires until we have the answers. More from Chris Martenson.

Venezuela’s Chavez in Dogfight

Sunday’s Presidential election in Venezuela pits Socialist strongman Hugo Chavez against the most formidable opponent he has faced in his 14 years in office. Coalition opposition leader Henrique Capriles has gained ground by waging an aggressive door-to-door campaign. But even Capriles describes himself as a David facing a Goliath, and recent polls show him trailing by about 10 percent. Chavez enjoys clearcut advantages, including billions of dollars in oil-funded handouts to court key voter blocs. Al Jazeera reports from Venezuela on the run-up to the election.
