Good News Friday: 09/16/22
September 16, 2022
Week after week we are frustrated by the news.
However, we refuse to stay silent when there is under-reported good news to celebrate and enjoy.
1- We are happy that the horrible imprisonment of the incredible Dr. Simone Gold has ended. We look forward to supporting her brave work in the future as she has not been silenced.
Americas Frontline Doctors
Released From Prison!
QUOTE: from AFDS newsletter: We thank God that Dr. Simone Gold, the founder of America's Frontline Doctors, has been released from prison!
Wrongfully convicted of a crime she didn't commit, Dr. Gold went to prison because she dared to stand up against mis-information, Big Pharma, and the Biden Administration. While in prison, Dr. Gold was shamefully quarantined with eight days of solitary confinement because she refused to take the Covid-19 jab.
Immediately after being released, Gold promised swift action against the "gate-keepers" of Covid propaganda. She added, "I served a federal prison term for a non-violent misdemeanor trespassing charge with no prior record—making me the first woman in history to do so. My conviction and sentencing were completely out of line. It made a mockery of justice. I was made an example. This was a political hit."
Dr. Gold continued, "I will use every means at my disposal to call out the liars, the purveyors of Covid mis-information—including Rep. John Conyers' and his House Committee on Coronavirus 'Mis-Information,' the NIH, the CDC, and especially the DOJ for their egregious overreach of my case. I will fight for the 840+ Patriots who are still awaiting justice for their J6 involvement."
While in prison, Gold recounted her eyewitness account of seeing the shameful mis-treatment of women, placed in a Federal Prison where males outnumbered females three or four to one.
Dr. Gold looks healthy and is in great spirits, even after experiencing this outrageous abuse and mistreatment. As the Founder of AFLDS, she's back to fighting for truth and liberty while exposing the tyrannical Biden administration.
2- Any action that stops the government from their over reaching Covid-CCP mandates is good news!
The Epoch Times
Biden Administration Decides Not to Enforce COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for Federal Contractors
QUOTE: President Joe Biden's administration has opted not to enforce a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors, following a recent court decision that enabled the government to enforce the rule in some parts of the country.
The White House Safer Federal Workforce quietly updated its website on Aug. 31 to say that the government "will take no action to implement or enforce" Biden's executive order mandating COVID-19 vaccination for contractors. Clauses in existing agreements that implement requirements of the order will also not be enforced "absent further written notice," the workforce added.
The workforce also made other updates, including clarifying that screening for COVID-19 symptoms for contractors can be self-conducted and does not need to be verified by government workers.
3- The states are deciding on the issue of abortion, as our system was designed. Ignore Uniparty Senator Lindsay Graham and his suddenly introduced abortion bill. The Supreme Court has ruled that abortion issues are NOT to be under Federal control but decided within the States.
Graham must have missed the concept.
West Virginia Legislature Passes Bill Banning Abortions, Will Become 16th State to Protect Babies
QUOTE: The West Virginia legislature has passed a bill to ban abortions, protecting babies starting at conception. Once the House approves the Governor Jim Justice signs the measure into law, West Virginia will become the 16th state to ban abortions.
The state legislature is holding a special session on a few political issues, including abortion. Knowing that the state's old abortion ban is tied up in courts, supposedly for lack of clarity, Governor Jim Justice called on the legislature to pass a new abortion ban that would stand up in court following the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
"From the moment the Supreme Court announced their decision in Dobbs, I said that I would not hesitate to call a Special Session once I heard from our Legislative leaders that they had done their due diligence and were ready to act," Justice said in a statement. "As I have said many times, I very proudly stand for life and I believe that every human life is a miracle worth protecting."
4- No mail-in voting in Delaware! This is a state-by-state fight.
QUOTE: A new vote-by-mail law enacted in Delaware earlier this summer was ruled unconstitutional by a judge on Wednesday, meaning that Delawareans will not be able to vote by mail in the upcoming election scheduled for Nov. 8.
In an 87-page opinion, Vice Chancellor Nathan Cook ruled that the law, which allows Delaware voters to vote by mail in the general election without providing a reason for doing so, violates a provision in Delaware's constitution known as Article V, Section 4A.
"Our Supreme Court and this court have consistently stated that those circumstances are exhaustive," Cook wrote. "Therefore, as a trial judge, I am compelled by precedent to conclude that the vote-by-mail statute's attempt to expand absentee voting to Delawareans who do not align with any of Section 4A's categories must be rejected.""I must find that the vote-by-mail statute is unconstitutional for purposes of the general election," the judge added.
5- Isn't it great that the leftist Sanctuary Cities are available to care for illegal immigrants?
Ron DeSantis Flies Planes Full Of Illegal Immigrants To Martha's Vineyard
QUOTE: Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis followed through Wednesday on a promise to send illegal immigrants to Democrat-controlled areas by sending two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, a Massachusetts island, that is home to wealthy progressives like former President Barack Obama (D).
"Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha's Vineyard today were part of the state's relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations," an official for DeSantis' office said in a statement. "States like Massachusetts, New York, and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country' by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as 'sanctuary states' and support for the Biden Administration's open border policies."
6- Busloads of illegal immigrants decamped at the Vice President's residence. They are reportedly from Venezuela, a deeply corrupt country and a failed experiment in socialism. Veep Kamala Harris should feel right at home welcoming them into the residence in her sanctuary city. Just last Sunday, Kamala assured us that our border is secure.
Buses of Illegal Immigrants Arrive at Kamala Harris' House, Shrieking Ensues
QUOTE: As RedState reported on Wednesday evening, Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, a favorite landing place for rich, liberal elites, including Barack Obama.
Greg Abbott wasn't to be outdone, though. News broke on Thursday morning that two busloads of illegal immigrants were dropped off at Kamala Harris' doorstep. That came just days after the vice president had proclaimed the border "secure."
Fox News actually took the time to do some actual journalism, something the rest of the mainstream media couldn't be bothered to do as they clutched their pearls. Here's one of the illegal immigrants saying that the border is "open" because they entered "free, no problem."
Most of the illegal immigrants in this case were apparently from Venezuela. They were sent voluntarily north because border towns in Texas are completely overwhelmed and simply do not have the resources to care for these people. Besides, who better to take them in than the very Democrats who have spent the last decade promoting sanctuary city policies and proclaiming the wonders of diversity? Abbot is doing them a favor by making the transition of these illegal immigrants into welcoming liberal communities smoother. Or at least, that's what you'd think the response would be given past rhetoric. But nope, leftwingers are freaking out, calling the move inhumane and exploitative.
7- Newt Gingrich outlines a five point plan for big Republican wins.
A five-point plan to secure a Republican majority come November
QUOTE: Republicans have the potential for a surprisingly big victory come this November's midterm election.
More than 50 years ago, Edward Tufte proposed that midterm elections ultimately become referenda on the party occupying the White House. This puts an enormous burden on the Democrats. In June, a Monmouth University poll found that 88% thought America was "on the wrong track."
On Sept. 8, the University of Virginia Center for Politics published an analysis using two different election forecast models. Both approaches project a large Republican sweep in the House of 37 to 44 seats and a more modest Republican gain of three to five seats in the Senate. A separate analysis from UVA projects a 42-seat Republican gain in the House and a one-seat Republican gain in the Senate. A pickup of 42 seats would give Speaker Kevin McCarthy the largest GOP majority since 1928.
The author points out that the Republican challenge in the Senate is greater because there are 21 Republicans and only 14 Democratic Senate seats up this year (which means the next two cycles will be harder in the Senate for Democrats)
The August strategy (cooked up by the propaganda media and Democratic consultants) that relied on using phony polls and personal attacks on Republican candidates has now failed. The momentum is shifting back to Republicans. So what, then, should Republican candidates do to maximize their victory this fall?

8- Two weeks ago, England quietly banned the Covid-CCP injection for children after banning it for pregnant and breast feeding mothers. This week Denmark basically banned the injection for everyone. These stories are under-reported as they raise serious questions on the efficacy and safety of the mandated injections. They are not safe. They never were.
Denmark ENDS Covid vaccinations for almost everyone under 50.
QUOTE: Denmark will bar almost everyone under 50 from receiving more mRNA Covid jabs, the Danish Health Authority said yesterday.
Denmark had already ended Covid shots for nearly everyone under 18. The new rules go much further.
Danes under 50 will only be allowed to receive the shots if they are "higher risk of becoming severely [emphasis added] from Covid-19."
Denmark did not explicitly say the risks of mRNA jabs now outweigh their benefits for healthy people under 50.
But that view is implicit in the announcement, which does not merely discourage but actually bans shots for those people, even though Denmark expects "a large wave of [Covid] infection" in the next few months.
In other words, the health authority is not stopping shots because Covid has ended. It now believes most people are better off getting the coronavirus than taking more mRNA.
9- This week marked a historic election in notoriously left leaning Sweden. The right wing has taken over power as voters responded to the disastrous results of unchecked globalist immigration policy.
QUOTE: Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson, leader of the Social Democrats, has resigned after admitting defeat in Sweden's national election, opening the way for a new centre-right coalition government that could include Sweden's populist party.
Prime Minister Andersson resigned Thursday following the final results of the national election which took place on Sunday.
