The new City Council will soon have Chicago’s highest-ever representation of lesbian, gay and bisexual alderpeople, offering key opportunities to strengthen the city’s reputation as a beacon for LGBTQ rights while protecting the most vulnerable members of the community, they said.
The number of openly LGB-identifying alderpeople in Chicago will grow from seven to nine, comprising one-fifth of the council, when members are sworn in May 15. No openly transgender or nonbinary alderpeople have been elected in Chicago.
What to make of the Bud Light boycott? What was a few weeks ago dismissed as a conservative tantrum that would go nowhere and soon calm down has turned out to be the most successful consumer boycott of recent years. And in our culture-warring era, in which even booze and ice-cream brands feel compelled to lecture the rest of us about how to think and live, that really is saying something.
If you missed all this – or if, like me, you have been boycotting Bud Light for years on purely flavour and percentage grounds – then let me fill you in.
On 1 April, America’s formerly beloved watery beer brand unveiled a new ambassador: transgender TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney. As part of a ‘March Madness’ promotion, Mulvaney was given a ton of money and a personalised Bud Light can in exchange for a short promotional social-media video, sporting his trademark ditsy shtick.
The backlash was swift. Prominent anti-wokesters called for a boycott as reports began to surface of punters snubbing Bud Light en masse. Naturally, the great and good dismissed all this as a big, fat nothingburger. Until now.
According to trade figures, Bud Light’s sales outside of hospitality venues fell by a whopping 26 per cent in the week ending 22 April, compared with the same week last year. Meanwhile, sales of rival brands Coors Light and Miller Lite have mysteriously shot up.
(Natural News) The “green” energy push is causing so many people to purchase electric vehicles (EV) in China that the country has no choice but to burn more coal in order to supply enough charging electricity for everyone.
Just as we have been warning would be the case, the transition from gas-powered cars to EVs will only place increasingly more strain on the electricity grid, which is still primarily fed using coal, gas, and oil.
In order to power all these new “clean” EVs roaming the streets, more earth-based fuels must be burned at power plants, which means there is absolutely nothing “green” about any of this.
“Power shortages are likely to reemerge as the acceleration in the energy transition continues to put pressure on electricity networks,” said analysts Daniel Hynes and Soni Kumari in a recent report about the EV push.

Wind, solar, and water are unreliable sources of energy – only coal, gas, and oil are reliable
Already, China’s energy grid is showing signs of failure as extremely low water levels throughout the country are negatively impacting hydropower generation. Much like wind and solar, hydropower relies upon shifting weather patterns and is not as stable as coal, gas, and oil.
The corporate-controlled media is blaming “climate change” for China’s decreasing hydropower capacity, but the fact of the matter is that anything that relies on shifting weather patterns is going to be unreliable as a stable source of energy.
Once again, the only types of energy we can truly count on at pretty much all times to deliver as expected are earth-based fuels derived from coal, gas, or oil. Everything else comes with questionable reliability as sometimes the wind does not blow, the sun does not shine through heavy cloud cover, and water levels fall due to shifting rains and drought.
Hydropower is China’s largest source of so-called “clean” energy, and like solar and wind it is proving to not be enough to keep all those EVs powered. The only solution is for China to burn more coal to make up for the deficit.
According to ANZ, the entire world’s passenger fleet of EVs will displace just 600,000 barrels a day of earth-based fuel demand this year. Meanwhile, countries are having to use more of those same earth-based fuels to keep their power plants online and their EVs powered.
In other words, gas-powered cars and EVs still both require earth-based fuels. It is just that the one uses those earth-based fuels directly in the product’s gas tank, while the other is powered by electric plants that burn earth-based fuels far away from the end product.
It is a similar situation for solar panels, the manufacturing plants of which require lots and lots of earth-based fuel input in the form of electricity in order to output the final product.
“I don’t know why the lefties hate coal; it’s black,” joked one commenter, making light of the ridiculous notion of the “clean,” “green” energy hoax.
“China produces 12 million tons a day of coal,” wrote another, further noting that China’s skies are blanketed in pollution because of all the earth-based fuels that have to be burned in order to power everyone’s “clean” EVs.
Another pointed out that China’s continued high demand for coal is part of the reason why Barack Obama tried to shut down all coal production in the United States, “so his cronies can buy leases for pennies on the dollar and sell the coal to the Chinese, as well as to break the power of the United Mine Workers.”
(Natural News) A volcanic eruption that occurred on April 10, 2021, at the Sheveluch volcano in Russia is spreading toxic sulfur dioxide all around the world, which David DuByne says is contributing to global crop failures.
Appearing on a recent episode of the Health Ranger Report, DuByne unpacked what took place on April 10 and how it is impacting food production all around the world.
“We’re starting to see sulfur dioxide spinning around the Northern Hemisphere, around 60 degrees north latitude, but it’s being caught up in the polar easterlies causing spinning and cavitation in the atmosphere,” DuByne explained.
“And that is going to wind its way all around the Arctic Circle, and the dome of our planet will be covered with sulfur dioxide for the next year and a half.”
Be sure to watch the full interview from Brighteon.com below:

Sulfur dioxide is the same chemical the globalists are using to “dim” the sun and stop “global warming”
The clouds that drive most of the world’s weather patterns are now carrying around this sulfur dioxide, depositing it all over the place, including on crop fields.
“This eruption occurred right at 60 degrees north latitude, which is really interesting because it’s at that conversion zone of two different cloud cells,” DuByne said.
“So what we have is the polar easterlies are going to be ripping to the east, obviously. And then what we consider to be regular weather that most across from west to east in its pattern are right at that conversion zone. So what we are seeing is a lot of twisting into the atmosphere, and with the sulfur dioxide it’s becoming very, very pronounced.”
Put simply, the more these weather conversion zones mix and twist, the more all that sulfur dioxide will be uniformly spread throughout the world’s weather patterns. In the next four months, DuByne says, it should be “a lot more uniform around the top of our planet.”
Keep in mind that sulfur dioxide is the same chemical that the globalists are artificially blasting from airplanes in the form of “chemtrails” or geoengineering. It is a sun-“dimming” technique that the climate brigade claims will help to “cool” the planet by blocking out natural sunlight.
Volcanic eruptions also naturally produce sulfur dioxide. And in this case, the Sheveluch eruption has blasted lots and lots of sulfur dioxide at just the right latitude to insert these chemicals into the world’s various weather patterns.
What this means, of course, is that sulfur dioxide is being spread everywhere. And it will continue to spread in the months and years to come, causing problems wherever too much of it accumulates.
“Just in the last two weeks, we’ve had three major eruptions that above 50,000 feet, you are going to get regional cooling,” DuByne explained about how there have been multiple major volcanic eruptions recently.
“So now we’re combining all these different atmospheric effects from several different effects of major proportions over the last year and a half. It’s culminating, it’s actually really starting to blend in and amplify on itself, one effect amplifying the next.”
Between the sulfur dioxide and all the water vapor that these eruptions have created, there is going to be a substantial blocking of the sun, which in addition to causing a “cooling” effect will also deny food crops of the normal amount of sunlight they need for photosynthesis.

In his classic work Imperialism, a Study, J.A. Hobson (1858-1940) argued that “men of a single and peculiar race, who have behind them centuries of financial experience” formed “the central ganglion of international capitalism.”
There are two theories about how the City of London financed what many call the New World Order (NWO) agenda (that we call the Crime Syndicate and New Underworld Order), and who was behind it. One theory holds that it is primarily a Rothschild enterprise from start to finish. The other theory, espoused by Webster Tarpley, holds that it is a British-imperialist insider action. The role of the United States is of a captured tool and water-boy of the proceeding, particularly with the advent of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913, Col. House’s skulduggery to bring the U.S. into WWI, and the ultimate defeat of the America First movement.
A good interpretative framework of the following homework posts is essential to get full benefit from reading our pages:
Although there is much to be gleaned from Tarpley and his Freemason Palmerston Zoo theories, Winter Watch holds that it was a marriage, merger and overlap of Jewish finance and British imperialist supremacist chosenites. The Sabbattean-Frankist Rothschild operations wouldn’t have had success without the British Freemason imperialists, and vice versa. The following is a survey of the arrangement.
It should be mentioned that sources on the Jewish-British NWO were right out in the open and freely discussed throughout the mid-19th century and up to WWII. However, today this is shockingly scrubbed and suppressed, which leaves curious and even intelligent observers very much in the dark.
But Jewish financial and business interests were key participants in the imperialist enterprise. For example, the Indian railroad network that Sassoon helped to finance was closely integrated into the imperial administration. The Sassoons, in turn, utilized the British imperial system as the point of the spear in the Chinese opium trade.
Foreign trade (largely drugs) with China was organized by the Morgans, by the National City Bank and, by Kuhn and Loeb. Later, the International Banking Corporation, led by railway king Edward H. Harriman and Isaac Guggenheimer, began the economic “exploitation” of China. Jacob Schiff, Morgan, Kuhn, Loeb and Harriman made fortunes out of railway construction in that country.
Other points of the spear to lock this system down was tribe member Julius Reuter’s wire service, which functioned as the command and control mechanism of the British imperialist government. The huge fortunes were parlayed into control of major media and entertainment, which in the U.S. today is 95% in the hands of five Crime Syndicate mega-corporations.
The British government also turned to Jewish banking houses to finance imperial expansion and skirt around the democratic legislative processes. Disraeli’s purchase of the Suez Canal in 1878, for example, was made possible by Henry Oppenheim’s extensive contacts in Egypt and a £4 million loan from Lionel Rothschild.
In the 20th century, Jewish and fellow-traveler foundations were able to end-run elected officials and put in place NUO (aka Crime Syndicate) rules and standards. Non-Jewish foundations with London ties like Carnegie and Rockefeller would rubber stamp the NUO agenda. In the present day scams are spearheaded by a slew of plutocrat foundations with Gates the most notorious. The end game of this was the regulatory capture of government agencies and departments.
The Jewish writer Benjamin Ginsberg in “The Fatal Embrace: Jews and the State” (1999) put very good color on this.
Empire, of course, was also a field for pursuit of profit. The House of Rothschild concerned itself mainly with loans to governments and public bodies. However, in the 1890s, it became heavily involved in diamond and gold mining on the Rand.
When Alfred Beit and Julius Wernher floated Rand Mines in February 1893, the Rothschilds were allotted 27,000 of the 100,000 shares. The scandals that beset the Edwardian Jewish plutocracy also illustrate Jews’ involvement in the empire as a money making enterprise.
The Marconi scandal of 1912, is it well known, centered on the allegation that four liberal cabinet ministers stood to profit from a contract awarded to the English Marconi Company. Two of the cabinet ministers in question — Sir Rufus Isaacs and Herbert Samuel — were Jews. The head of the English Marconi Company was Geoffrey Isaacs, the brother of Sir Rufus.
Another informative Jewish author, David Feldman, in “Jews and the British Empire” (2007) zeroed in on monopolistic bankster control of central banking: “The two-tier system means they have money in superabundance: any central bank therefore has huge power.” The key is defacto and real monopolies.
Speyer and Co., the great Jewish banking house, in 1903, gave Mexico her first $12.5 million loan. It acquired by this transaction all oil concessions in Mexico. Rockefeller, Morgan, Jacob Schiff and the other Jewish financiers followed suit and thus almost all the natural resources of Mexico fell into Jewish hands. Bernard Baruch put the National City Bank under Jewish management; and Guggenheim, the Jewish copper magnate, became the real masters of Mexico.
The major part of Cuba’s industry is controlled by the Guggenheims.
Bolivia was turned into a colony of “dollar imperialism” by Speyer and Guggenheim, who exploited the zinc mines.
Since 1935, 35 percent of the potassium nitrate and 90 percent of the copper industry of Chile has been in the hands of the Guggenheim and Morgan Trusts.
In 1906, the same world conquerors obtained monopolies over Nicaragua’s national income from customs and excise and also over her railways and shipping lines. The Jewish banking house of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. was one of the founders as well as chief financier of the Panama Canal Co.
In Peru, the copper mines are in the hands of the Seligmans and Goldschmidts.
Lord Melchett, under his original name of Mond, controls the nickel industry of Canada. Out of a total of $30 billion, which constitutes the national nickel assets of Canada, a total of $3 billion is in the hands of the Jews.
And par for the course is today’s latest bank failure crisis as JP Morgan- a la 1907-, scarfs one bank after another with government backing and facilitation. JP Morgan pays a tiny fraction on deposits yet somehow- at least so far- avoids the bank runs seen elsewhere. JP Morgan now holds over $2.4 TRILLION in deposits.

(Natural News) The U.S. is set to end its Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination requirements for international travelers and employees working under the federal government.
According to a May 2 report by Reuters, the White House announced that the vaccination requirements for both groups will end on May 11. This will coincide with the conclusion of the COVID-19 public health emergency first declared in March 2020, the outlet added.
“While vaccination remains one of the most important tools in advancing the health and safety of employees and promoting the efficiency of workplaces, we are now in a different phase of our response when these measures are no longer necessary,” the White House said in a statement.
According to NBC News, the White House’s announcement means international travelers who aren’t U.S. citizens or permanent residents no longer need to be fully vaccinated before flying to the United States. The vaccination requirements were originally put in place as part of a larger effort to curb the spread of new COVID-19 variants.
In a separate announcement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said it will no longer require non-U.S. travelers entering the country via land ports of entry and ferries to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The DHS added that this measure, alongside the abolition of proof of vaccination requirements, will begin on May 12.
In February, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to lift the requirement that most foreign travelers entering by air be vaccinated against COVID-19. This was one of the few remaining pandemic-era travel restrictions still in place.
In June 2022, the Biden administration dropped its requirement that people arriving by air test negative for COVID-19. However, it kept vaccination requirements recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for most travelers.
One person impacted by the CDC’s vaccination requirement was Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic. The No. 1 men’s tennis player was unable to play in some U.S. tournaments as he has not been injected with the COVID-19 vaccine. But according to the new rules, he could freely enter and play in major American tournaments beginning May 12.
Vax requirement for federal workers also ending on May 11
May 11 also marks the end of COVID-19 vaccine requirements for federal workers. First imposed in September 2021 by the Biden administration, the mandates called for employees and contractors to be injected with the COVID-19 vaccine or face disciplinary action – including termination. While medical and religious exemptions were purportedly permitted, many of these requests were rejected.
More than a year later, the White House told federal agencies in October 2022 not to enforce the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for contractors. The order was issued despite the lifting of a nationwide injunction.
In spite of this legal wrangling, the White House said in its statement that the Biden administration had achieved “98 percent compliance” among the 3.5 million-strong federal workforce.
Moreover, the administration is also rolling back other COVID-related requirements. The Department of Health and Human Services will begin ending vaccination requirements for educators working under the Head Start program and for those working in health care facilities certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
