SEE IT! Car crushed by train in Georgia as driver escapes just in time

The Duluth, Georgia Police Department is reminding drivers to be vigilant around railroad tracks after a car was hit by a train.

Rebel News is sending an all-star team to cover the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting

Rebel News is sending an all-star team to cover the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting

Remove Ads

The World Economic Forum meets in Davos, Switzerland, next week. And I have huge news: we’re sending FIVE investigative journalists to cover every inch of that place, to shine a light of scrutiny on those oligarchs.

Let me outline our plans.

We’ve set up a special website where all of our WEF reports will be published throughout the week. Check it out and meet the journalists involved, go to www.WEFReports.com. And while you’re there, if you can, please help us crowdfund the travel for our independent reporters.

So, what is the World Economic Forum?

It’s billionaires, politicians, dictators, celebrities and other oligarchs who meet in the luxury ski town of Davos, to scheme about their plans for the world.

The WEF are the ones who talk about The Great Reset; the ones who fly on private jets but tell you that you can’t drive a car; the ones who say “you’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy” while they gobble up billions of dollars.

Politicians in every country seem to echo their talking points about “Build Back Better” and the “Great Reset”.

Who are they and what do their plans mean? Who is their boss, Klaus Schwab, who looks and sounds like a James Bond supervillain?

Why does Justin Trudeau go there so often, and what does he talk to George Soros about when they meet there?

Schwab boasts that his acolytes have “infiltrated governments around the world.” Is it true?

We’ll try to answer these questions for you. We’re sending a great team of independent reporters.

Avi YeminiRebel News’ fearless reporter based in Australia. He’s famous for challenging authority with courage — and a sense of humour.

Lewis Brackpool is coming from the U.K. — he’s making a docuseries for us exposing The Great Reset. You can see more about that project by going to ExposeTheReset.com. Stay tuned, because we’ve got some more news about that coming this week.

Our newest reporter, Jeremy Loffredo, is coming from New York — he’s a long-time critic of crony capitalists. Jeremy was embedded in the U.S. trucker convoy for a month.

And we have two special guests: Rukshan Fernando, the outstanding citizen journalist from Melbourne, Australia whose “just the facts” coverage of the lockdowns infuriated mainstream media. Along with Rukshan, a true star reporter will be rolling with us — Savanah Hernandez, one of America’s great journalists, recently from BlazeTV and now with Truth Social.

That’s why you’ve got to visit WEFReports.com — it’s your one-stop website to follow each of these five reporters and their work from Davos. The WEF meeting doesn’t start until May 22, but we’ve already got a team on the ground in Switzerland.

And while we’re there, we’re also going to visit the UN’s World Health Organization. They’re having their annual conference at the same time.

This mission is probably the most important journalism we’ve ever done at Rebel News. But we need your help. We’re crowdfunding the economy-class airfare to Switzerland. We’ve rented an economical Air BNB for the team — even though it’s an hour away from Davos, because every hotel room in the city is booked up by the WEF. Our team will drive in to the town every day to save money.

Between the flights, the Air BNB, the car rental and meals, this project will cost us more than $14,000, even though we’re going economy class all the way.

Please help us cover the cost of our citizen journalism, at WEFReports.com.

I’m not going to give away our journalism plans because I don’t want to give the oligarchs any warning, especially since they aren’t used to being asked any tough questions. But all I can say is: stay tuned to www.WEFReports.com.

Thanks for your support. And trust me — you don’t want to miss this.

*** Election Night Livewire *** Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Kentucky, Idaho, Oregon Vote in Contentious Primaries

*** Election Night Livewire *** Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Kentucky, Idaho, Oregon Vote in Contentious Primaries

Voters in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Kentucky, Idaho, and Oregon all head to the polls Tuesday to select their nominees in both GOP and Democrat primaries in what is thus far this year perhaps the biggest election night yet.

Center-stage is Pennsylvania’s GOP U.S. Senate primary, where celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz – with former President Donald Trump’s endorsement – aims to secure the nomination and advance to the general election. Both Oz and businessman David McCormick, who despite his Wall Street history has run one of the most America First campaigns this cycle, have spent north of eight figures bashing each other to smithereens in a brutal ad campaign. Kathy Barnette, the author and conservative commentator whose powerful personal story has captivated voters, has surged into the top tier in the final weeks of the campaign, giving both of the big spenders a run for their money. Who wins between Oz, McCormick, and Barnette, will have major implications for the future of the GOP, for the party’s chances in the general election in Pennsylvania, and whether the GOP has a shot at retaking the U.S. Senate majority in these upcoming midterm elections in November.

The winner of that primetime primary is likely to face Democrat Lt. Gov John Fetterman in the general election, assuming Fetterman can swat away primary opponents, including Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA), even after suffering a stroke that has left him hospitalized in the final days of the campaign.

In addition to many key congressional primaries as well, voters in Pennsylvania will also select nominees in both parties for governor. On the Democrat side, Attorney General Josh Shapiro is a shoo-in and looks to make his general election bid formal on Tuesday night. On the GOP side, divisions remain despite a last-second endorsement of state Sen. Doug Mastriano from Trump. Mastriano, a deeply-flawed candidate with a messy history on the issues, has relied on a divided field to poll well ahead of the rest of his opponents. Other Republicans, most prominently former Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA), have waged a desperate campaign in an attempt to hold him off.

In North Carolina, Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) appears to be coasting into the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate – something that just a few months ago was no sure thing. However, Budd, with Trump’s endorsement, has rallied late in the spring to a commanding lead in the polls representing a generational shift inside the GOP towards outsider candidates like him and J.D. Vance in Ohio, who won his primary a couple of weeks ago. Several down ticket congressional primaries are up for grabs, too, most notably whether Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) can hold off a primary challenge, and some open seats will test Trump’s endorsement there as well.

In Oregon and Kentucky, Democrat infighting in their primaries could potentially be the story of the night, and other races loom large there possibly. In Idaho, GOP Gov. Brad Little faces GOP Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin in a primary. Trump endorsed McGeachin, another test of the former president’s strength inside the party, especially in a deep red state like Idaho.

Follow along here for live updates as the results pour in from across the country. The polls begin closing in parts of Kentucky at just 6 p.m. ET and the rest of the state at 7 p.m. ET. In North Carolina, the polls are open until 7:30 p.m. ET, and in Pennsylvania until 8 p.m. ET. In Idaho, the polls close at 10 p.m. ET, and in Oregon most of the polls close at 11 p.m. ET though some in areas that follow Mountain Time close at 10 p.m. ET.

UPDATE 8:48 p.m. ET:

In North Carolina, two more Trump-backed GOP House members have fended off primary challengers:

UPDATE 8:35 p.m. ET:

With 5 percent reporting in Pennsylvania’s GOP Senate primary, McCormick still leads–now with 33.4 percent compared to Oz’s 21.9 percent. Barnette is in third with 20.3 percent.

UPDATE 8:30 p.m. ET:

Another Trump-backed candidate won in Kentucky:

UPDATE 8:26 p.m. ET

With 4 percent reporting according to the New York Times, McCormick is holding a double digit lead over Oz. McCormick’s 36.4 percent leads Oz’s 23.3 percent. Barnette, meanwhile, is in third at 17.3 percent.

UPDATE 8:22 p.m. ET

Another update on the Cawthorn situation in North Carolina–he is performing really strongly in Election Day votes versus early votes where he did poorly:

UPDATE 8:18 p.m. ET:

On the Democrat side, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman appears to be coasting to the nomination and Dave Wasserman of Cook Political Report says he already won:

Fetterman is literally in a hospital right now recovering from a stroke, a late breaking story that threw a curveball into an otherwise uneventful Democrat primary even though Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) was running against him. No news organizations have called this one yet, but it seems to be a lock. Fetterman is an avowed socialist and will give whoever the GOP ends up nominating a good fight in November.

UPDATE 8:14 p.m. ET:

Oz is leading in the early Philadelphia County returns, but McCormick has the early statewide lead for now.

UPDATE 8:10 p.m. ET:

It’s worth noting those first Pennsylvania Senate GOP primary results are from Allegheny County, where McCormick is expected to do very well. Some early results from Northampton County on the other side of the state also have McCormick leading there too. It’s still very early, so this race will tighten big time as other counties begin reporting.

UPDATE 8:07 p.m. ET:

The very first results are coming in in Pennsylvania. With 1 percent reporting according to the New York Times, David McCormick has a huge lead. McCormick, at 42.6 percent, is way ahead of Mehmet Oz’s 22.7 percent while Kathy Barnette is at 15.6 percent. It is still very early here so expect this to tighten and change significantly.

UPDATE 8:05 p.m. ET:

An update on Cawthorn’s situation–Wasserman says it is looking good for young flashy congressman at this point:

UPDATE 8:03 p.m. ET:

In North Carolina’s 13th congressional district GOP primary, Bo Hines–the Trump-backed pick–has a healthy lead so far but it is early. With 23 percent reporting according to the New York Times, Hines has 30.9 percent–close to a double digit lead–and leads by about 1,500 votes.

UPDATE 8:00 p.m. ET 

The polls have closed in Pennsylvania, where the banner race of the night–the U.S. Senate GOP primary–is, and results there are expected imminently.

UPDATE 7:54 p.m. ET:

It is worth noting that the open U.S. Senate seat in North Carolina that Budd just won the nomination for and is easily the favorite over Beasley in November’s general election is being vacated by retiring Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC). Similar to in Ohio a couple weeks ago, where the outgoing Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) saw the GOP primary for his seat won by another outsider J.D. Vance, this seems to be the beginning of major changes to the Republican Party–and the U.S. Senate–in 2022.

UPDATE 7:52 p.m. ET:

On the other side of the aisle, Democrat Cheri Beasley has wrapped up her primary and will face Budd in November in the critical swing state of North Carolina:

UPDATE 7:51 p.m. ET:

The polls were not closed for even 20 minutes before the Associated Press made the official call for the Trump-backed Ted Budd, who is now the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate:

This was clearly a landslide, or blowout, election victory for both Budd and Trump.

UPDATE 7:49 p.m. ET:

Meanwhile, in the 11th district, Cawthorn might be in a bit of trouble:

UPDATE 7:47 p.m. ET:

With 11 percent reporting according to the New York Times, Budd has a commanding lead over McCrory and former Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC). Budd has 57.8 percent to McCrory’s 25.5 percent while Walker has just 8.7 percent.

UPDATE 7:40 p.m. ET:

Ted Budd has taken a huge lead in the very early results, and Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report has already called the race for him:

News organizations have yet to call it, but it seems like Budd is as expected coasting to victory. This is another win for Trump, and more importantly was not always as sure a thing as it turned out to be in the last few weeks. As recently as late winter or early spring, Budd was trailing in the polls or even with his opponents. Trump’s early endorsement, as well as a strong campaign from the conservative outsider, seem to have generated significant momentum for him and propelled him to way out in front in this critical race. Budd is likely to face Democrat Cheri Beasley in the general election.

UPDATE 7:36 p.m. ET:

Another Trump endorsement, Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY), won his primary:

UPDATE 7:34 p.m. ET:

One to watch closely in North Carolina is the primary challenge that Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) is facing. He’s endorsed by Trump, but has been dogged by a series of attacks in recent weeks. The primary runoff thresholds also, per some experts, benefit him:

UPDATE 7:31 p.m. ET:

Another Trump endorsement, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), has won his primary:

UPDATE 7:30 p.m. ET:

The polls have now closed in North Carolina, where the GOP U.S. Senate primary is set to be the banner race but several down-ticket primaries matter as well. Results should be coming very soon and if the polls showing Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) significantly leading huge over former GOP Gov. Pat McCrory are right a call should be imminent.

UPDATE 7:23 p.m. ET:

Those 26 Trump endorsements on the line on Tuesday night are as follows, according to Trump’s team:

Idaho-Governor: Janice McGeachin
Idaho-Senate: Mike Crapo
Idaho-01: Russ Fulcher

Kentucky-Senate: Rand Paul
Kentucky-01: James Comer
Kentucky-02: Brett Guthrie
Kentucky-04: Thomas Massie
Kentucky-05: Hal Rogers
Kentucky-06: Andy Barr

North Carolina-Senate: Ted Budd
North Carolina-03: Greg Murphy
North Carolina-05: Virginia Foxx
North Carolina-07: David Rouzer
North Carolina-08: Dan Bishop
North Carolina-09: Richard Hudson
North Carolina-10: Patrick McHenry
North Carolina-11: Madison Cawthorn
North Carolina-13: Bo Hines

Pennsylvania-Governor: Doug Mastriano
Pennsylvania-Senate: Mehmet Oz
Pennsylvania-08: Jim Bognet
Pennsylvania-10: Scott Perry
Pennsylvania-11: Lloyd Smucker
Pennsylvania-13: John Joyce
Pennsylvania-14: Guy Reschenthaler
Pennsylvania-16: Mike Kelly

UPDATE 7:21 p.m. ET

The polls have closed in Kentucky, and several of Trump’s endorsed candidates have already won. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) won his primary easily:

So did Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY):

In total, Trump has 26 endorsements on the line nationwide on Tuesday night.

Governing bodies unconcerned about widely shared, flawed data on COVID transmission

Governing bodies unconcerned about widely shared, flawed data on COVID transmission

Remove Ads

In this third report, I feature the responses received from governing bodies after a flawed modelling paper went viral a few weeks ago.

The “study” was co-authored by David N. Fisman, Afia Amoako and Ashleigh R. Tuite and peer-reviewed by the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) and spread in mainstream media like a seasonal respiratory virus.

You can view my first report highlighting the conflicts of interest and junk science here, and subsequent interview with Dr. Bryam Bridle from an immunological perspective here.

Posing media inquiries, I contacted Kim Barnhardt from the CMAJ who prompted Dr. Kirsten Patrick, Editor-in-Chief, to respond.

I contacted Fisman’s employer, the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, his regulatory body, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).

The basis of my questions was clear.

For the journal:

  1. What review process took place to verify the methodology used and findings asserted in the above mentioned article?
  2. What protocols are in place to correct falsehoods?
  3. Will this paper remain published as is? Why or why not?

And for the governing bodies/employers:

  1. What protocols are in place to initiate an investigation of physicians accused of publishing misleading scientific information?
  2. How does the [governing body] uphold public trust by correcting falsehoods or reprimanding physicians engaged in public misconduct?

The largest runaround ensued between myself and Shae Greenfield, the Senior Communications Advisor at the CPSO.

That is the same regulatory body that has threatened physicians into silence and compliance with statements on Public Health “Misinformation”. It has bullied, threatened and coerced doctors trying to uphold their patients’ medical privacy; an organization that “believes questioning the value of vaccinations or countering public health best practices during COVID-19 represents a risk to the public and is not acceptable behaviour.” They have meddled in the medical practice of physicians throughout the pandemic who were simply trying to advocate for and save patients’ lives and have investigated those granting exemptions from universal masking or indiscriminate injecting.

I guess the CPSO only investigates physicians who they think are spreading public health misinformation and granting too many mask exemptions. And peer reviewing is confidential, apparently, but they demand to know who the critics are outside of the review process.

Prosecutors: Clinton Lawyer Michael Sussmann Planned ‘October Surprise’ with Russia Hoax

Prosecutors: Clinton Lawyer Michael Sussmann Planned ‘October Surprise’ with Russia Hoax

Prosecutors alleged in the trial of former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann on Tuesday that he fed a story to the FBI about alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia via Alfa Bank hoping to create an “October surprise.”

The claim came during opening statements in federal court in Washington, DC, where Sussmann is on trial for lying to the FBI by claiming he was passing along information as a mere private citizen. The Alfa Bank theory was soon discredited.

CBS News reported:

Special counsel John Durham’s first jury trial in the three years since his appointment by Trump Attorney General Bill Barr commenced Tuesday with prosecutors alleging a noted cyber attorney with ties to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign planned to “create an ‘October surprise’ on the eve of a presidential election.”

In opening arguments, prosecutors on Durham’s team focused on a Sept.19, 2016, meeting between Sussmann and then-FBI general counsel James Baker, who is set to be called as a government witness later in the trial. At that meeting, prosecutors alleged Sussmann was attempting to set a plan in motion that would help two clients, technology executive Rodney Joffe and the Clinton campaign.

But Sussmann’s defense shot back in their opening salvo, “You think Mr. Sussmann would throw his career away, his life away, to tell a lie to that guy,” they asked the jury, referring to Baker.

A list of high-profile witnesses is slated to testify this week, including former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, and Democrat election lawyer Marc Elias, who arranged for the research that led to the fraudulent Russia “dossier” in 2016.

Joel B. Pollak is Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News and the host of Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot on Sunday evenings from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET (4 p.m. to 7 p.m. PT).

Thousands march for freedom and against major political parties in Brisbane rally

Remove Ads

It was a very miserable, cold and rainy day at Musgrave Park in South Brisbane, but that did not stop the high spirits of the protesters. There were guest speakers of medical staff, a Hawaiian chant, the New Zealand Haka and a very special message from San Diego S.T.O.R.M (Standing Together Organising A Revolutionary Movement).

About five thousand people were estimated to be on the march and nothing was ruining their day. People travelled far and wide all over Queensland, just making it through despite flood waters rising.

They voiced their opinions on the upcoming election on the 21st of May and how they will not be voting for any of the big parties.

Moth species unseen for 110 years found in passenger’s bag at Detroit Metro Airport

Moth encountered at Detroit Metropolitan Airport / CBP

ROMULUS, Mich. – A recent moth interception by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agriculture specialists at Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is now considered to be the first encounter of the species since 1912.

The initial encounter was incidental to a September 2021 inspection of an arriving passenger flight from the Philippines. Agriculture specialists discovered seeds in the personal baggage of a passenger who claimed the pods were for medicinal tea. Upon closer inspection, apparent insect exit holes were discovered in the seed pods that were ultimately intercepted by CBP.

Moth larvae and pupae were collected for further analysis, and while in quarantine, several of the pupae hatched to reveal “very flashy” moths with raised patches of black setae (bristles). Physical characteristics indicated the moths to be members of family Pyralidae, however genius or species were not able to be determined by agriculture specialist and specimens were submitted to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for further identification.

A USDA Smithsonian Institution etymologist later confirmed with CBP this was a first encounter of this species of moth since it was first described in 1912. This was also the first time that a larvae or pupae associated with this species has been collected.

Agriculture specialists play a vital role at our nation’s ports of entry by preventing the introduction of harmful exotic plant pests and foreign animal diseases into the United States,” said Port Director Robert Larkin. “This discovery is a testament to their important mission of identifying foreign pests and protecting America’s natural resources.”

Each year, CBP agriculture specialists intercept tens of thousands of “actionable pests” – those identified through scientific risk assessment and study as being dangerous to the health and safety of U.S. agricultural resources. All travelers entering the United States are required to declare meats, fruits, vegetables, plants, seeds, soil, animals, as well as plant and animal products (including soup or soup products) they may be carrying. The declaration must cover all items carried in checked baggage, carry-on luggage, or in a vehicle.

Upon examination of plants, animal products, and associated items, CBP agriculture specialists at the ports of will determine if these items meet the entry requirements of the United States. Failure to declare agricultural items can result in penalties to travelers who fail to do so.
