Don’t drink the water? Don’t eat EU food

The European Union couldn't get people to go along with its push for people to stop eating meat and instead eat bugs -- so EU elites have sneaked in a rule to let manufacturers use ground-up crickets in place of flour in their starch-based foods.

Joe Biden's biggest presidential fight isn't about securing the borders or reeling in China or blasting back at globalists who want to cripple America's Constitution. No. It's about forcing free citizens to wear stupid face masks -- forever, it would seem. Published January 20, 2023

The near-sociopathic medical push for never-ending face masking

Face masks don't work. Yet medical tyrants continue to insist they do -- in part, by redefining the word "work" -- and a la sociopath style, continue to insist that those members of the public under their control play active roles in the lie.

Biden is a huge blessing for the cartels
