While tens of thousands of people at Shanghai Disneyland enjoyed rides, park food, fireworks, and character visits Sunday, the park’s staff “quietly sealed” the exits as hazmat-suit-wearing authorities flowed into the venue and prepared to test each and every one one of the nearly 34,000 guests for COVID before they could leave, Bloomberg reported.

Why? According to the Wall Street Journal, a woman who had attended the park a day earlier was found to be infected with COVID. And much like Australia’s “zero COVID” standard, the Chinese have decided to maintain a “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to the pandemic.

China, Bloomberg noted, is one of the last real “COVID zero” nations as even Australia has begun to loosen restrictions. Instead of moving toward reopening, the communist government is doubling down.

But efforts seem to be failing as the nation has seen multiple waves of the Delta variant, with a current resurgence under way in half of the nation’s provinces.

School changes rules to allow ‘satanic dress’

It was a fight that erupted in Mississippi when one student wore, during COVID-19, a face mask with the words “Jesus Loves Me,” that highlighted the conflict.

And now, MSNBC reports, officials in Rose Tree Media School District near Philadelphia have decided to change their dress code rules to allow “satanic clothing.”

Tucker Carlson series says Jan 6 protest hijacked by leftist agitators

The January 6 MAGA riot was was instigated by left-wing ‘agents provocateurs,’ including Insurgence USA founder John Sullivan, who revved up the crowd to storm the Capitol barricades and trample over police officers, experts told Tucker Carlson.

Sullivan, who has pleaded not guilty to eight charges and is scheduled for a court hearing in January, filmed the fatal police shooting of Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt as she tried to climb through a broken door leading to the Speaker’s Lobby.

One of the experts quoted in the documentary, J. Michael Waller, says that ‘January 6 was a political warfare operation’ that was ‘egged on’ by police who needlessly fired tear gas that provoked the large crowd of largely nonviolent Trump supporters.

Waller, a national security expert at the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, DC-based think tank, said that the Capitol riot had all the hallmarks of past ‘false-flag’ missions that he was trained to carry out himself.

The bill prevents government entities from requiring masks.Schools would need to go through an intricate process to require masks and only on a school-by-school basis, not district-wide.

The bill also allows those who leave a job because of a COVID-19 vaccination mandate to be eligible for unemployment benefits.

Today, we look at some of the biggest cons so far— and who’s looking for all the crooks.

Glenn Youngkin pulls ahead of Democrat Terry McAuliffe by less than 1%

A spokesperson for Democrat McAuliffe said, according to 13 News Now, that he will campaign in a different part of the state in a bizarre move on the eve of the race seen as the first indicator of the administration’s performance ahead of the 2022 midterms. 

McAuliffe, during a campaign in Manassas, Virginia on Sunday called for the Old Dominion State to ‘diversify’ its teacher base as the race comes down to some niche issues – including education and critical race theory.

The Democratic candidate promised to create a program to attract more minority teachers while lamenting that Virginia has too many white teachers.

‘We got to work hard to diversify our teacher base,’ McAuliffe said at the event.

COP26 will be a ‘grotesque spectacle’ of ‘decadence and hypocrisy’

Spiked Online Chief Political Writer Brendan O’Neill says he believes the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow will be a “grotesque spectacle” of “decadence and hypocrisy”.

“What we have here are the rich and powerful flying in, many of them on private jets, many of them driving around in big gas guzzling cars, lecturing the rest of us about the need to rein in our material aspirations,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“Learn to live with less – that’s what the green ideology is all about. Drive less, fly less, eat less meat, be less greedy. “We’re going to hear those kinds of messages from the kind of people who fly around in jets that it costs 10,000 pounds an hour to hire out.”

Commentary/Opinion:

Dave Rubin was cut from a LGBTQ+ magazine due to the Left’s FEAR

Dave Rubin says he thinks being gay is the least interesting fact about him. But when a writer from the LGBTQ+ magazine ‘Insight’ kept asking for an interview, Rubin eventually agreed.

The writer seemed thrilled with the piece…but then the magazine’s publisher was SO fearful of how readers would react to Rubin’s ‘controversial opinions’ that he cut the story.

Rubin tells Glenn his experience shows how weak the left’s ideology truly is and why being held hostage by your own audience means ‘you’re not a free human being.’

Xi Van Fleet: “People are very afraid” to Express Themselves | CLIP | American Thought Leaders

Xi Van Fleet compares the use of the term ‘racist,’ which she says “doesn’t mean anything anymore,” to the term ‘counter-revolutionary,” which was used during Mao’s Cultural Revolution to smear anyone who did not conform to the Communist ideology.

She says today, people are afraid to express themselves for fear that if they do not have the “right ideas,” then they will be labeled racist, and potentially lose their livelihood.

I Trusted Fauci for Decades, After This I No Longer Can (Pt. 1) | Dr. Drew | POLITICS | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Dr. Drew Pinsky about how Dr. Fauci lost his trust, how the CDC created vaccine hesitancy, the truth about mask efficacy, and how woke culture is creating a climate where doctors are afraid of being cancelled for stating scientific facts.

He explains why Fauci’s denial of gain of function research funding caused him to no longer trust him despite looking up to him for decades.

Dr. Drew discusses how people don’t know who to trust for public health advice and why it was such a disgrace that the decisions that Joe Rogan made with his doctor resulted in such an outcry.

He also explains why the French vaccine mandate is much more rational than the type we are trying to apply here in the United States.

Should We Be Colorblind?

And what does a person’s skin color really say about who they are — their likes, dislikes, values, and so on?
