NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A bill has been introduced in the Vermont state Senate that would make it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to use or possess a cellphone.

Liberals are a funny sort of creature, from their name you would think they would be all about freedom and liberty, perhaps that was true at one time but it is certainly not true in our day. In 2020 being a Liberal means you are wanting either a Socialist or Communist form of government, both systems being antithetical to both freedom and liberty. Now in Bernie Sanders, Socialist candidate for president, state of Vermont comes a bill that would make it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to not only own a cell phone but even to be caught using one. Fascist, much?

Now imagine what a Bernie Sanders presidency would look like, because that’s what you’ll get,.

Bill would ban cell phone use for those under 21 in Vermont

FROM THE TIMES ARGUS: The Vermont bill, S.212, would make such possession or use a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of a year behind bars and a $1,000 fine.

It said cell phone use while driving is one of the leading killers of teenagers. It also said young people use cellphones frequently to bully and threaten each other, something that has been linked to suicides.

“The Internet and social media, accessed primarily through cell phones, are used to radicalize and recruit terrorists, fascists, and other extremists. Cell phones have often been used by mass shooters of younger ages for research on previous shootings,” the bill reads.

The bill said the Legislature has concluded those under 21 years old “aren’t mature enough” to possess guns, smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol and the same should apply to cellphone use. The state recently increased the smoking age to 21 and barred those under 21 from buying a gun unless they take a hunter safety course.

The bill was introduced by Sen. John Rodgers, D-Essex-Orleans. Rodgers said Wednesday he introduced the bill to make a point.

“I have no delusions that it’s going to pass. I wouldn’t probably vote for it myself,” he said.

He said he’s a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the Legislature “seems bent on taking away our Second Amendment rights.” He said, based on the information presented in the bill, a cellphone is much more dangerous than a gun.

The bill talks about suicide and suicide prevention was a major talking point when the Legislature passed a bill requiring a 24-hour waiting period to buy a handgun. Gov. Phil Scott vetoed the legislation and it’s not expected to be taken up again this session.

Michelle Fay is the executive director of Voices for Vermont’s Children, an organization based out of Montpelier that promotes public policy that enhances the lives of children and youth in the state.

Fay issued a statement saying, “There are so many critical issues impacting the lives of working families in Vermont today, from increasing minimum wage to implementing equitable family and medical leave insurance programs to establishing an office of child advocate. We urge the Legislature to focus on the important work at hand instead of getting tied up in hollow diversions.”

She said in an interview Wednesday there’s no question technology plays a role with children treating each other badly, but isolating cellphones doesn’t seem to make sense because they will still be able to use computers.

“It feels like a reach, for sure,” she said. READ MORE

WAG THE DOG: Nancy Pelosi Lands In Taiwan For Pathetic And Obviously Staged Moment As China Vows ‘Targeted Military Actions’ In Response

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan late Tuesday, defying Chinese warnings against visiting the self-ruled island that Beijing claims as its territory and setting the stage for a sharp escalation in tensions between China and the United States.

History shows us that the best way to get a nation out of recession is to get into a war, that usually works to invigorate the economy. History also shows us that when one political party is facing historic defeat at the voting booth, a war is usually the cure for that as well. The Democrats in Washington DC are right now attempting to solve both those problems by sending that ‘champion of freedom’ Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan in hopes of eliciting military action from China. Ever watch the movie ‘Wag The Dog’? You should.

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJB)

Of course, seeing that this is Day 869 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, everything is “on the table”, and what we are watching could easily be the start of something really big. Imagine for a moment, the New World Order issuing the order to make Nancy Pelosi not just a ‘champion of freedom’ but also a patron saint of the American people by turning her into a martyr. They did it to JFK in 1963, drastically changing the fortunes of the Democratic Party from that day until now. Whatever actually happens, just remember you are watching end times theater, fake, stage events but with grisly real world consequences. China says military action is coming, let’s see who blinks first, and in the meantime, enjoy the show!

Pelosi lands in Taiwan, defying Chinese warnings of forceful response

FROM MSN: Pelosi’s plane landed at Songshan airport in Taipei just before 11 p.m. local time. Wearing a face mask, she was greeted by Taiwan’s foreign minister, Joseph Wu, and staff from the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), the de facto U.S. embassy in Taipei.

Pelosi’s visit has enraged China, which for years has sought to diplomatically isolate the island and views such exchanges with high-level foreign dignitaries as support for Taiwanese independence. The Chinese Communist Party claims Taiwan, a self-governing democracy that is home to 23 million people, as its territory despite never having ruled it. Chinese leader Xi Jinping has pledged to “reunify” Taiwan with China by force if necessary.

Moscow said it was “absolutely in solidarity with China”, calling the prospect of a Pelosi visit “pure provocation”.

Just after Pelosi’s arrival, China’s official Xinhua News Agency released an announcement from the People’s Liberation Army that “important military training operations” and live ammunition drills would take place in six areas surrounding Taiwan between Thursday and Sunday — after the House speaker’s visit.

China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced the visit as “a serious violation of the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-U.S. joint communiqués,” adding, “China firmly opposes and sternly condemns this, and has made serious démarche and strong protest to the United States.” Pelosi, in a statement issued moments after her arrival, said, “Our congressional delegation’s visit to Taiwan honors America’s unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan’s vibrant Democracy.” She defended her trip.

“Our visit is one of several Congressional delegations to Taiwan — and it in no way contradicts longstanding United States policy, guided by the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, U.S.-China Joint Communiques and the Six Assurances. The United States continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo.”

Chinese maritime authorities, meanwhile, announced additional military exercises in the South China Sea and live-fire drills in the Bohai Sea, near the Korean Peninsula, this week. Reuters, citing an unnamed source, reported that Chinese fighter jets on Tuesday flew close to the median line of the Taiwan Strait, the unofficial military boundary. Chinese carrier Xiamen Airlines, meanwhile, announced disruptions to at least 30 flights because of air traffic restrictions in Fujian, the Chinese province directly across the strait from Taiwan.

Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, accused the United States on Tuesday of escalating tensions in the Taiwan Strait and warned of “disastrous consequences” if the United States mishandles the situation. “The United States should and must take full responsibility for this,” she said.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Tuesday at a meeting in Shanghai that U.S. politicians who are “playing with fire” on the issue of Taiwan will “come to no good end,” according to a transcript released by the Foreign Ministry. READ MORE

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Releases Video Strongly Indicating Their Willingness To Shoot Down Nancy Pelosi’s Plane If It Goes To Taiwan

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has issued another warning to Nancy Pelosi ahead of her expected trip to Taiwan with a video simulating a missile strike, aircraft carriers advancing and fighter jets in formation – and a stern warning from state media.

What Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and the ‘failing and flailing’ Democrats need right now more than anything else is a really, good distraction. The American people, so easily deceived and led down the garden path due to their short attention span, need to be distracted from gas prices, Bidenflation, and the ‘technical recession’ Democrats say doesn’t exist. So since monkeypox hasn’t distracted too many people, try though they may, maybe having Nancy Pelosi shot out of the sky by the Read Army will do the trick. At the very least, it’s a pretty good distraction.

“Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?” Isaiah 60:8 (KJB)

One one hand, it’s not overly likely that China will shoot Nancy Pelosi out of the sky, but then again, former Democratic National Committee head Ron Brown didn’t think he was booked on a one-way flight, either. We live in an age and time where literally anything is possible. Global lockdowns? Sure. Forced injections of citizens? Yep, we got that. Digital ID? On it’s way. Nancy Pelosi? If the New World Order decides that their cause is better served with her plane blown to pieces, you can bet the farm it will be.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has issued another warning to Nancy Pelosi ahead of potential trip

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: The video was posted on WeChat on Monday morning following reports the U.S. House Speaker will arrive in Taipei on Tuesday night – despite Beijing warning they could shoot her plane down and launch a military response.

Chinese state media personality Hu Xijin also issued a grim message to the top Democrat: ‘Let her go to Taiwan. But pray before departure: wish herself a safe journey and wish herself not be defined by history as a sinner who starts a spiral of escalation process expanding military frictions to a large-scale war in the Taiwan Strait.’ Senior Taiwanese government officials and a US official both told CNN that the stop is on her trip, even though it is not on her public itinerary.

Reports from TVBS News in Taiwan have said Pelosi could arrive in Taipei as early as tomorrow night and her team has booked two hotels, although there is no mention of the visit in her official itinerary. The US official added that defense department officials were working on securing a plan to keep her safe, according to CNN.  The visit will inflame tensions with China, which considers Taiwan one of its own territories.

Amid the threat, Taiwanese officials reportedly have cancelled leave for soldiers and officers ‘to immediately prepare’ for the prospect of war.

Last Friday, Chinese state media said the government was prepared to shoot Pelosi’s plane down if it was detected in its airspace accompanied by a fighter jet escort.

The latest warning was issued during a Chinese foreign ministry briefing by spokesperson Zhao Lijian, who said that because of Pelosi’s status as the ‘No. 3 official of the US government’, a visit to Taiwan, which China claims as its own, would ‘lead to egregious political impact’.

Lijian added that it would be ‘a gross interference in China’s internal affairs’ and would lead to ‘very serious developments and consequences.’ READ MORE

Irony Abounds As Woke Starbucks Forced To Close 16 Shops In Democrat-Controlled Liberal Cities Due To Violence Against Workers At Store Locations

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said Democratic mayors and city councils have ‘abdicated their responsibility’ in fighting crime and addressing mental illness, which has forced his company to shutter stores due to fears over employee safety.

How ironic is it that Far Left Starbucks is being forced to start shuttering stores in cities across America that are run by Democrats because the streets have become too violent and the safety of Starbucks workers cannot be guaranteed? This is what you get when wokeness is in charge, you get anarchy, violence, poverty and death. But it’s a really good real world illustration of what Socialism can do for you.

“But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.” Isaiah 32:8 (KJB)

If wokeism was a good thing, when people and companies embrace it they should prosper, but they don’t, they collapse and fall into ruin. Cities like Chicago, Portland and Seattle have become literal hellholes, turning once-thriving areas into block after block of burned out and shut down cautionary tales. Starbucks has long been anti-cop, anti-Israel and anti-Christian, on top of that their coffee tastes terrible. If terrorism had a flavor, it’d be Starbucks nasty, burnt-tasting coffee. Wouldn’t bother me a bit if all of their stores closed tomorrow. I’ll take Maxwell House anytime.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz blames Dem-run cities for store closures

FROM THE NY POST: Schultz made the comments in leaked video that was posted to Twitter over the weekend by Ari Hoffman of KVI-AM talk radio based in Seattle. Last week, Starbucks announced it was closing 16 restaurants in various cities across the country due to what the company said was employee complaints of drug use and violent crime on the premises. Schultz said he believes the Seattle-based coffee chain will have to close “many more” locations.

“This is just the beginning,” said the interim chief executive, who came back to run the company earlier this year following the retirement of his predecessor, Kevin Johnson. “There are gonna be many more store closures.”

The leaked video of Schultz shows him addressing Starbucks employees. He told them that the company was “beginning to close stores that are not unprofitable.” Schultz said he was “shocked” to hear from employees that “one of the primary concerns that our retail partners [baristas] have is their own personal safety.”

“And then we heard about the stories that go along with it about what happens in our bathrooms,” Schultz said.

In 2018, Starbucks implemented an “open bathrooms” policy after a store manager had two black men arrested for not ordering coffee while sitting down in a Philadelphia location. Video of the arrest went viral, and Starbucks apologized following intense backlash. Now the company is giving store managers discretion to alter the policy due to complaints that Starbucks bathrooms are a magnet for drug abusers and homeless people.

In the video leaked over the weekend, Schultz cited the “issues of mental illness, homelessness, and crime.”

“Starbucks is a window into America,” Schultz said. “We are facing things in which the stores were not built for.”

Schultz then took Democrat-run cities to task for not providing solutions.

“In my view, at the local, state, and federal level, these governments across the country and leaders — mayors, governors, and city councils — have abdicated their responsibility in fighting crime and addressing mental illness,” he said. READ MORE
