Transgender UPenn Swimmer Finally Defeated — By Trans Competitor from Yale at Women’s Swimmers Meet

A transgender swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania has finally been defeated by a Yale University competitor who is also transgender.

Lia Thomas, who is biologically male but identifies as female, has been obliterating records previously held by biologically female athletes, receiving scorn from fellow UPenn swimmers who take issue with Thomas’ presence on the women’s team. It appears, though, the transgender athlete’s skill level has been matched.

Thomas won two races at a tri-meet over the weekend but fell short in the 100 freestyle. Yale swimmer Iszac Henig, a biological female who is transitioning to male, received a time of 49.57 seconds to Thomas’ 52.84 seconds, according to the Daily Mail.  — Source: CBN News

Student vaccinated without parental permission; mother’s lawyer threatens lawsuit

A mother in Kenner plans to sue after her 16-year-old son managed to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by turning in a consent form without a parent’s signature last week at an Ochsner Health school event, her lawyer said Saturday (Oct. 23).

“Suit is being prepared and will be filed,” Lafayette-based attorney Shelly Maturin told WVUE-Fox 8.

Maturin said he is representing Jennifer Ravain and her 16-year-old son, an East Jefferson High School student not of legal age to consent to receiving the shot he took last Wednesday at an Ochsner mobile vaccination event at his school. Maturin called the situation a “nightmare,” said it “should shock the conscience of all citizens of Louisiana,” and vowed in a written statement that “every legal avenue will be pursued to make sure that justice is served.” Local Fox 8

Poll: Majority of Americans Say Big Tech Censorship of Hunter Laptop Story Interfered With Election

Over half of Americans believe media censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story constitutes election interference, a new survey finds.

The survey from the Media Research Center found 49 percent of respondents said it was inappropriate for social media sites to suppress an October 2020 New York Post report that showed Hunter promised Ukrainian business partners access to his father. Twitter suspended the Post‘s account following publication and blocked users from sharing the link. Fifty-two percent of respondents said the blackout constituted election interference.

Big tech has come under fire over the past year for censoring posts on hot-button issues. Facebook has regularly removed or suppressed content that suggests COVID-19 escaped from a Chinese lab. The platform also removed posts from a Gold Star mother critical of Biden’s handling of the death of her son. Twitter this month suspended the account of Rep. Jim Banks (R., Ind.) after he referred to a transgender Biden official as a man. Source

Worthy News was censored for sharing the Hunter Biden story. Worthy News was also blacklisted for reporting on the potential Chinese lab leak in January 2020.

Pablo Escobar’s “cocaine hippos” are legally people, U.S. judge rules

The offspring of hippos once owned by Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar can be recognized as people or “interested persons” with legal rights in the U.S. following a federal court order.

The case involves a lawsuit against the Colombian government over whether to kill or sterilize the hippos whose numbers are growing at a fast pace and pose a threat to biodiversity.

An animal rights groups is hailing the order as a milestone victory in the long sought efforts to sway the U.S. justice system to grant animals personhood status. But the order won’t carry any weight in Colombia where the hippos live, a legal expert said.  Source: CBS News

Sen. Rand Paul: Fauci Should Be Fired After NIH Letter Admitting It Funded Gain-of-Function Research

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told “Axios” on Sunday that he wants Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), fired after the National Institutes of Health (NIH) admitted in a letter to Congress that it funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

“And so in the letter they acknowledge that, yes, the viruses did gain in function. They became more dangerous. So they’ve created a virus. It doesn’t exist in nature. It’s become more dangerous. That is gain of function,” he said.

“Now, they try to justify it by saying, ‘Well, it was an unexpected result.’ I’m not sure I buy that. Think about it. You take an unknown virus, you combine it with another virus, and you get a super virus. You have no idea whether it gains functions or loses function,” Paul said. –Source

NIH quietly rewrites ‘gain-of-function’ definition amid greater scrutiny of controversial research

The National Institutes of Health quietly altered a key definition of “gain-of-function” research on its own website amid a wave of major scrutiny regarding its funding of controversial research in Wuhan, China.

Comic Book Artist Quits After DC Announces Superman Will Be LGBT

An artist with DC Comics said this week he’s leaving the company because he’s “tired of them ruining these characters.” His decision comes on the heels of the announcement that the next iteration of Superman will be bisexual.

Gabe Eltaeb, a colorist for DC Comics, said during an appearance on a YouTube show hosted by Ethan Van Sciver that he is exiting the brand when his contract runs out.

“I’m finishing out my contract with DC,” he said. “I’m tired of this. … I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.” Source

Mass events up, COVID cases down

In many countries, mass events are still banned; where they aren’t outright forbidden, they are still mostly frowned upon. However, recent data from the United States seem to suggest that so-called super-spreader events aren’t quite the super-spreaders many fear them to be.

“For weeks, crowds in the tens of thousands, mostly unmasked, have sat side-by-side now cheering on their teams at the halfway point of the season,” NBC reported. “All while doctors warned of games becoming potential super-spreader events. A frightening prospect at the time with hospitals already on the brink.”

And yet, “Covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths are now all down nationwide,” the report continued. “Cases are now in steep decline in every college football state across the south, including Florida, where hospitalizations fell 64 percent last month, even as some 90,000 fans packed the [University of Florida] Gators’ stadium.” — Arutz Sheva (Source)

91 Research Studies Affirm Naturally Acquired Immunity to Covid-19: Documented, Linked, and Quoted

We should not force COVID vaccines on anyone when the evidence shows that naturally acquired immunity is equal to or more robust and superior to existing vaccines. Instead, we should respect the right of the bodily integrity of individuals to decide for themselves.

Public health officials and the medical establishment with the help of the politicized media are misleading the public with assertions that the COVID-19 shots provide greater protection than natural immunity. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, for example, was deceptive in her October 2020 published LANCET statement that “there is no evidence for lasting protective immunity to SARS-CoV-2 following natural infection” and that “the consequence of waning immunity would present a risk to vulnerable populations for the indefinite future.”

Immunology and virology 101 have taught us over a century that natural immunity confers protection against a respiratory virus’s outer coat proteins, and not just one, e.g. the SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein. There is even strong evidence for the persistence of antibodies. Even the CDC recognizes natural immunity for chicken-pox and measles, mumps, and rubella, but not for COVID-19. Source

San Francisco temporarily closes In-N-Out Burger due to vaccine defiance

The San Francisco Department of Public Health closed In-N-Out on Oct. 14 because employees were not properly checking for customers’ vaccination documentation, the burger chain said in a statement.

In-N-Out said it properly posted signs of local vaccination requirements but refuses to strictly enforce them.

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” In-N-Out Chief Legal & Business Officer Arnie Wensinger said. “We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business.” Source
