The Walt Disney Company and Walmart announced a new policy on Friday that will require nearly every employee working for the company in the United States to be vaccinated against the CCP virus.

Disney’s new measure will give both salaried and non-union hourly employees across the nation 60 days to be compliant, the company said in a statement. Newly hired employees will also be required to be fully vaccinated before beginning employment.

“Employees who aren’t already vaccinated and are working on-site will have 60 days from today to complete their protocols and any employees still working from home will need to provide verification of vaccination prior to their return, with certain limited exceptions,” according to the statement.

The company added that it also started conversations with union leaders representing employees over COVID-19 vaccinations.

“Vaccines are the best tool we all have to help control this global pandemic and protect our employees,” Disney said. The international family entertainment and media enterprise has about 203,000 employees and is headquartered in Burbank, California.

It is unclear how many employees are affected and if workers will be given the option to show a weekly COVID-19 test as other companies with similar proof of vaccination mandates have allowed.

Disney’s policy was announced as several big-tech companies, including Google and Facebook, said in July that every American employee must get the jab before stepping back into office.

Also on Friday, Arkansas-based multinational retailer Walmart said all employees at its headquarters and managers who travel within the United States must be vaccinated by early October.

“We’re hoping that will influence even more of our frontline associates to become vaccinated,” said Scott Pope, a Walmart spokesman.

The retailer, which announced in May that fully vaccinated employees could work without masks, also reversed its mask policy for employees working in stores, clubs, distribution facilities, and warehouses. Going forward, they will be required to wear masks in areas with high infection rates, even if they have been vaccinated.

Walmart is also encouraging customers to wear masks in stores located in areas with surging cases and will be adding back signs at the entrances. It will also bring back so-called health ambassadors who will be stationed at the entrances and hand out masks.

The reversal in its mask policy came three days after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) altered its CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus-related guidance once again, telling people to wear masks in some areas even if they are fully vaccinated against the virus that causes the disease COVID-19.

New research into outbreaks from several states and other countries “indicate[s] that on rare occasions some vaccinated people infected with the Delta variant after vaccination may be contagious and spread the virus to others.” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the CDC, told reporters on a call.

The research indicates that vaccinated people who contract the Delta variant have the same viral load, or amount of virus, as unvaccinated people, and that vaccinated people can transmit the variant.

“This new science is worrisome and warrants an update to our recommendations,” Walensky said.

    From the man who discovered HIV:

    “Leading French virologist Luc Montagnier is credited with being the first to discover HIV. Last spring he warned that the Wuhan Flu contains artificially spliced DNA from the autoimmune-provoking virus. He says the vaccines are priming people’s bodies for eventual sudden death.

    The Nobel Prize winner is credited with having first discovered the AIDS virus, and he won a Nobel Prize in Medicine for it.

    Montagnier also stated last year that the “presence of elements of HIV and germs of malaria in the genome of coronavirus is highly suspect and the characteristics of the virus could not have arisen naturally.”

    It turns out he was right. It is now accepted that the virus came from a laboratory.

    After studying at length the ingredients contained in the injections and what they do, Montagnier came to the conclusion that every single person who gets the shot will eventually die from antibody-dependent enhancement, or ADE.

    There is no chance of long-term survival for anyone who received a Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) injection, according to Montagnier.

    COVID Vaccinated People Within 2 Years :
    All vaccinated people will die within 2 years. Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has confirmed that there is no chance of long term survival. Repeated mRNA injections may prolong life in some people.”

    The world’s leading expert on Covid, Dr. Peter McCullough – Americaoutloud.com on Brannon Howse Live stated
    that women of child bearing age should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE VACCINATED. He stated a litany of those who have died of blood clots, paralysis, deaths world wide. So employers, like Disney, have no right to dictate it is mandatory for their employees to be vaccinated. His statistics are very sobering. It seems college drop out Gates and his buddy Fauci have developed something that indeed IS designed to cull the world’s population. Every death from Covid vaccines is on them. How many women of child bearing age in poorer countries have they killed or made infertile with their ‘vaccines’?

    NBC News Anchor Warns Democrats Face ‘Shellacking’ in 2022 Midterm Elections, Admits Biden Has ‘Lost His Identity’

    Published

    on

    NBC News anchor Chuck Todd warned Sunday that Democrats could face a “shellacking” in the 2022 midterm elections.

    Reacting to a grim new NBC News survey, the “Meet the Press” host admitted that President Joe Biden’s perception is quickly sinking and warned that Democrats could lose big time in the 2022 midterm elections.

    According to Todd, Biden needs “a reset” because he has “lost his identity.”

    “He’s no longer seen as competent and effective, no longer seen as a good commander in chief or — perhaps most damaging — as easy going and likable,” Todd said. “In fact, just five percent of adults say Mr. Biden has performed better than expected as president — one of the many lowests, firsts, and fewests in our poll.”

    Todd then turned to Biden’s job approval as indicated by the poll, which stands at just 43%.

    “If you look at history, history shows that kind of presidential approval rating leads to a shellacking for the party in power,” Todd observed.

    But even worse, the poll indicated that 72% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. Todd explained that metric spells even more bad news for Democrats if they hope to maintain their control of Congress in November.

    “Right now our wrong track — nation’s on the wrong track number — sitting at 72%, second poll in a row where we’ve been over 70%. This is only the third time in our poll’s history over 30 years where we’ve had two tracks that off,” Todd explained. “That again would put you in shellacking territory for the party in power.”

    And the one positive metric from the poll for Democrats is not actually positive, Todd observed.

    “The one place Democrats are holding up OK is on the question of which party should control Congress— basically a dead heat, one point advantage there,” Todd said. “But most analysts will tell you Democrats have to be up by about four or five due to redistricting in order to actually hold the House here, so that puts it in the middle.”

    “But as you can see, two of our three most important indexes is sitting in shellacking territory right now for the Democrats,” he continued. “This is a dangerous place for the party and the president to be at the one-year mark of this presidency.”

    The NBC News survey was not the only poll unfavorable to Biden published on Sunday.

    A new Fox News survey found that 6 in 10 voters would back someone other than Biden if the 2024 presidential election were held today. That poll also found that Biden’s approval is underwater.

    Hunter Biden, Former Joe Biden Adviser Invested in Chinese Company with Ties to Communist Party, NBA China: Leaked Emails

    Published

    on

    A new report claimed that Hunter Biden and a former aide to Joe Biden invested in a Chinese company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

    In 2009, U.S. investment firm Rosemont Seneca Partners was founded by Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden; Christopher Heinz, stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry; and Devon Archer, an American businessman who was classmates with Heinz at Yale University.

    According to emails reviewed by Fox Business, Rosemont Seneca Partners held a 5% investment stake in Harves Amusement Parks and ownership in Harves Sports and Entertainment as recently as March 2017. A purported email exposing the ownership interests of Rosemont Seneca Advisors was allegedly sent to Hunter by Eric Schwerin — Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner.

    The report alleged that Hunter’s original introduction to the Harves Group arrived in 2015 by Francis Person, who served as an adviser to then-Vice President Biden from 2009 to 2014 and was a “special assistant” to Biden when he was a senator.

    In July 2014, Person stopped working with then-Vice President Joe Biden. In January 2015, Person became the president of the Harves Group. By May 2018, Person became the co-founder of Harves Global Entertainment.

    Person reportedly wrote an email to Hunter in July 2015, which invited him to travel to China the following month to meet his business partner — Bo Zhang.

    “Bo Zhang and his family would host us. They are a great family with great respect and relationships in China,” Person allegedly wrote to Hunter in an email. “Bo graduated from American Univ and is in his late 20’s, and his parents own Harves Century Group of Shenyang – which is a top tier private Chinese real estate development firm.”

    According to the purported email, Person highlighted that Zhang was being “groomed to take over the family’s dynasty” and that “there will be plenty of big things that come down the road that we can work on.”

    “His mom is actually the Chairman of the company, which is unique in China,” the alleged email said. “They are very private, and wouldn’t tell anyone about you coming. Bo’s father-in-law is actually the Governor of Hainan (Chinese Hawaii), which he doesn’t advertise at all.”

    Bo’s father-in-law is Liu Cigui — who since 2012 has been a member of the CCP Central Committee — the party’s “highest organ of authority,” according to China Vitae. Between 2012 and 2017, Cigui was a member of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, which is “a secretive, powerful agency in charge of investigating the Communist Party’s own members for corruption,” and was “the main weapon in Xi Jinping’s rapid consolidation of power as China’s new leader,” according to the Washington Post.

    The Diplomat described Cigui as a “Xi loyalist” in a report from January 2021.

    The Harves Century Group reportedly received financial backing from the state-owned China Development Bank.

    “Harves Century’s website says the chairwoman is Jenglan Shao, which is revealed to be Zhang’s mother according to Person’s 2015 email to Hunter Biden,” Fox Business reported. “It is unclear what her background is or whether she is an American citizen, but her name comes up on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website as a maxed-out donor to Person’s failed 2016 campaign against then-Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C. Zhang also was a maxed-out donor to Person’s campaign. Schwerin and Hunter Biden both donated $2,700.”

    In Person’s alleged email to Hunter, he notes that Harves is partnering with NBA legends Magic Johnson and LeBron James to “host an NBA Global Game in China” in 2016.

    In November 2020, Harves announced that it was partnering with NBA China, the National Basketball Association’s organization that “conducts all the league’s businesses in Greater China.” NBA China is “invested by five strategic partners,” which includes the Bank of China Group Investment, Legend Holdings Limited, Li Ka Shing Foundation, China Merchants Investments, and ESPN. The partnership between NBA China and Harves included opening “six NBA-themed entertainment centers across China, with the first opening by 2022,” according to the joint press release.

    Fox Business noted:

    It does not appear that Biden was able to make the China trip during the specific week that Person pitched in the email, but multiple emails reviewed by Fox Business show that Person and Zhang met with Biden and Schwerin in Washington on multiple occasions and emailed back-and-forth coordinating potential Harves-related business deals. In one 2016 email, Biden calls Zhang his “good friend and business colleague.” One of the names cc’d on the email was James Bulger, who appeared to help Biden get a Chinese business license for his uncle’s telemedicine company a couple of years earlier.

    Fox Business reached out to Person, Zhang, Schwerin, and Hunter Biden’s attorney, but none of the parties responded.

    VIDEO: Top-Ranked Merrill Lynch Wealth Manager Arrested After Throwing Drink at Teen Smoothie Shop Employees

    Published

    on

    A Connecticut man is accused of going on a xenophobic tirade at a smoothie shop. The wealth manager was arrested for throwing a drink at one of the employees at the smoothie shop in Fairfield, according to police.

    James Iannazzo, 48, of Fairfield, reportedly went to the Robeks smoothie store in Fairfield on Friday afternoon. Approximately 30 minutes after leaving the food establishment, he called 911 to request emergency medical services for his son, who was suffering from an allergic reaction. The child was transported to a local hospital, according to authorities.

    Iannazzo returned to the Robeks location roughly an hour after his original visit that afternoon. A visibly agitated Iannazzo is seen on video verbally abusing the four teen workers at Robeks. Iannazzo demands to know who made his smoothie from over an hour ago, but the employees are not sure who made that specific smoothie.

    Iannazzo lashes out at the teens with foul language, “F***ing, stupid f***ing ignorant high school kids.”

    After being instructed to leave by one of the employees, the man growls, “I want to speak to the f***ing manager.”

    An employee advises the disgruntled man to contact the corporate office to file a complaint, to which Iannazzo says, “Get the f*** out of here, you f***ing b****!”

    While the teen girls turn their heads away from Iannazzo, he hurls a drink at the employees, hitting one girl in the shoulder.

    Iannazzo unleashes a string of profanities against the girl he hit with the drink.

    The irate man asks for a phone number for the corporate office, but the employee repeatedly tells him to leave the establishment.

    Iannazzo yells back, “Shut the f*** up! Stupid f***ing idiot. You’re a f***ing idiot. I want the f***ing number. Shut up.”

    Iannazzo then says, “You’re f***ing immigrant loser.”

    The man attempts to then access the “employees only” area, but one of the girls is pushing back and he can’t open the door.

    According to Heavy, TikTok user @cjjbreezy uploaded the original video with a caption: “There was one girl, she was 16. Literally, it was like her second day. She was in the back, already called the police.”

    Content Warning: Graphic content:

    Iannazzo left the scene before police arrived, but later turned himself in to authorities without incident.

    Iannazzo was arrested and charged with second-degree intimidation based on bigotry or bias, second-degree breach of peace, and first-degree criminal trespass.

    “Iannazzo told Officers that he was upset about his son having a severe allergic reaction and he went back to the store as a result,” according to the Fairfield Police Department.

    “During the investigation, employees reported that Iannazzo never told them about the peanut allergy but had only requested that there be no peanut butter in his drink,” cops said.

    Iannazzo was issued a court appearance date of Feb. 7, 2022.

    According to his LinkedIn profile, Iannazzo had been a wealth management advisor and managing director. He had been affiliated with Merrill Lynch Wealth Management since November 1995.

    Merrill Lynch issued a statement regarding the incident, according to WVIT.

    “Our company does not tolerate behavior of this kind. We immediately investigated and have taken action. This individual is no longer employed at our firm,” the company said in a statement.

    Forbes ranked Iannazzo the 24th best wealth advisor in Connecticut in 2021.

    Barron’s named him the 32nd best in its list of “America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors” for 2019.

    University Targets Gen. Flynn Because He Stands for God and America

    Published

    on

    In 2014, the University of Rhode Island conferred an honorary degree on Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and already a URI graduate.

    Flynn would retire that August and go on to become national security advisor for President Donald Trump. He was then charged with lying to the FBI in 2017 in an incident that, with each new piece of information that drops about it, looks increasingly like a frame-up designed to get information on the Russia collusion hoax.

    In December 2017, he reached a plea deal on the charges, but he tried to withdraw his guilty plea due after new representation argued in May 2020 that the government had acted in “bad faith” and “vindictiveness,” as well as in “breach of the plea agreement.”

    Then-Attorney General William Barr moved to dismiss the charge, telling CBS News it “undid what was an injustice” and the FBI interview that led to the charge had no legitimate basis but was instead a “perjury trap.” Flynn was subsequently given a pardon by Trump.

    All of this happened between 2017 and the present. In that time, URI found no good reason to take away Flynn’s honorary degree.

    Now, however, the university’s new president thinks it should be yanked — and in exclusive comments to The Western Journal, Flynn said his “family has had enough” of “cancel culture and ‘wokeness’ in our academic institutions.”

    According to The Providence Journal, URI President Marc Parlange has called on the board of trustees at the school to revoke the honorary degrees awarded to Flynn and former New York mayor and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

    A URI committee that oversees honorary degrees voted Dec. 10 to revoke the degrees. Parlange said that “based on their findings that General Flynn and Mayor Giuliani no longer represent the highest level of our values and standards that were evident when we first bestowed the degree.”

    “As a civic institution, URI has the privilege and responsibility to sustain and preserve American democracy by insuring and modeling good citizenship,” Parlange claimed in his letter, according to the Journal. “Revoking these honorary degrees reinforces our values and allows us to lead with truth and integrity.”

    Flynn told The Western Journal that it was “another example of cancel culture and ‘wokeness’ in our academic institutions.”

    “And I know there is a concerted effort to attack me from certain elements on the Left, mainly because of my very visible stance fighting back against the socialist takeover of our country,” he added, predicting: “It will get national attention in the next 24 hours.”

    A statement from the Flynn family got closer to the truth:

    “Astoundingly, URI’s new President Mr. Marc Parlange distorts the facts and adopts lies and gossip spread for years in connection with the, now confirmed, framing of General Flynn,” the family said. “Mr. Parlange’s recommendation to revoke General Flynn’s honorary degree lacks moral courage, prioritizes pettiness over principles, and sets an unsavory, disturbing precedent.”

    “The blatant hypocrisy arising out of the Board’s expected decision to revoke General Flynn’s honorary degree smacks in the face of the core principles of this Country and the stated mission of the University, itself,” it said.

    “With this flawed and crooked action,” the family said, “URI endorses the destructive and tyrannical cancel culture, bowing down to the woke mob and repressive forces, while revealing itself to lack the intellectual capacity, fortitude or integrity that is required of an American public university in the 21st century.

    “General Flynn has dedicated his life to protect and preserve the United States of America and the freedoms and liberties enjoyed by all citizens of this great country, including those associated with the University of Rhode Island.

    “His unwavering love for God and Country – above all else – is the torch of light that he carried through decades of public service to America as a U.S. Army soldier and military leader of tens of thousands of young men and women in battlefields around the world.

    “For General Flynn, that bright light of freedom, liberty and equal justice for all will never dim and he will never be deterred. Never will he stop fearlessly fighting for the Republic and for every individual’s rights and liberty bestowed on American citizens by the Grace of God Almighty.”

    State Department Orders Families Of U.S. Embassy Personnel In Ukraine To Start Evacuating

    Published

    on

    The State Department has reportedly told families of those serving in the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine to begin evacuating as early as Monday.

    Fox News Pentagon correspondent Lucas Tomlinson broke the news Saturday morning, writing on Twitter: “State Department orders families of U.S. embassy personnel in Ukraine to begin evacuating the country as soon as Monday: U.S. officials.”

    The news follows reporting Friday night that the State Department was considering pulling the families of diplomats out of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, due to fears of an impending Russian invasion. Fox News reported that “Russia has amassed a force of around 100,000 troops near Ukraine’s border as talks continue between the Russian Foreign Ministry and the U.S. State Department.”

    “People familiar with the matter” told Bloomberg on Friday that the plan being consider would order family members of diplomats to return home and allow non-essential employees the option to leave voluntarily.

    “The U.S. employs about 180 American citizens and 560 Ukrainians at its embassy in Kyiv, according to the embassy website. That doesn’t include family members, so the number of U.S. citizens living in embassy housing is probably much higher,” Bloomberg reported.

    The news comes as the Biden administration has stumbled on its messaging around the threat Russia poses to Ukraine. The administration has increased its warnings about a potential invasion as it continues to engage in negotiations with Russia and Europe.

    As Bloomberg noted, the decision to evacuate doesn’t necessarily mean the U.S. is sure Russia is about to invade Ukraine, merely that the U.S. is taking extra precautions “as tensions rise.”

    As The Daily Wire previously reported, the White House was forced to issue a statement clarifying President Joe Bidens remarks about a potential Russian invasion into Ukraine.

    “It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about what to do and not do,” Biden told reporters last week. “But if they actually do what they’re capable of doing with the forces amassed on the border, it is going to be a disaster for Russia if they further invade Ukraine.”

    Biden was then asked what he meant by “minor incursion,” to which the president said he would draw a line at “Russian forces crossing the border, killing Ukrainian fighters.”

    Following a backlash, including a rebuke by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky who said “there are no minor incursions,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki released a statement attempting to clarify Biden’s remarks:

    President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies. President Biden also knows from long experience that the Russians have an extensive playbook of aggression short of military action, including cyberattacks and paramilitary tactics. And he affirmed today that those acts of Russian aggression will be met with a decisive, reciprocal, and united response.

    ‘Damning Video’ Of Chris Cuomo Testimony That Got Him Fired By CNN Has Been Released

    Published

    on

    Video of the testimony that got Chris Cuomo fired from his prominent CNN job has been released by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

    Fox News reported that the “damning video” was released Thursday, though transcripts of the July 15, 2021, testimony had been released in November just a week before he was fired. Cuomo was fired on December 4, with CNN citing “new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense.”

    The videos were released in four parts and are part of what James’ office called “the final set of videos, transcripts, and corresponding exhibits from the independent investigation into sexual harassment allegations” against Cuomo’s brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. As Fox noted, the “state initially refrained from releasing transcripts and footage but complied with New York discovery laws once a criminal complaint was filed against Andrew Cuomo.”

    The videos, according to Fox, line up with the previously released transcripts, but give a “clear picture” of the former CNN host’s admission about his role in helping his brother during multiple scandals.

    “When asked, I would reach out to sources, other journalists, to see if they had heard of anybody else coming out,” Cuomo said in his testimony. This line contradicted what Cuomo told CNN viewers in August 2021 when he declared that he “never made calls to the press about my brother’s situation.”

    Cuomo also claimed in the testimony that it was normal for journalists to reach out to each other to ask about stories they’re working on, claiming he in no way tried to influence their coverage of his brother.

    Cuomo was initially suspended following document released by the attorney general’s office showed he was more involved in helping his brother than previously known, The Daily Wire reported. CNN’s initial statement regarding the suspension said:

    The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense. The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions. When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.

    WATCH:

    Less than a week later, Cuomo was fired.

    “Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense,” CNN said in a statement about Cuomo’s firing. “We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately.”

    “While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light,” CNN added. “Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.”

    Within days of his firing from CNN, Cuomo also lost his SiriusXM radio show, The Daily Wire reported.

    Sinema Censured By AZ Dem Party For Defending Filibuster

    Published

    on

    On Saturday, the Arizona Democratic Party executive committee voted to censure Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) following her defense of the Senate filibuster.

    In a statement regarding the censure, state party chair Raquel Terán condemned Sinema. “I want to be clear, the Arizona Democratic Party is a diverse coalition with plenty of room for policy disagreements,” Terán said before stating that voting rights are more important than the “archaic” filibuster.

    Terán continued, making claims about the state of Arizona’s alleged voting restrictions, and adding that 19 states have passed voting laws disapproved of by many on the Left.

    She continued:

    As a party, our job is to support our Democratic candidates, and we appreciate Senator Sinema’s leadership in passing the American Rescue Plan and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. However, we are also here to advocate for our constituents and the ramifications of failing to pass federal legislation that protects their right to vote are too large and far-reaching. While we take no pleasure in this announcement, the ADP Executive Board has decided to formally censure Senator Sinema as a result of her failure to do whatever it takes to ensure the health of our democracy.

    Sinema has not responded to the censure as of publication of this article.

    On January 13, Sinema gave a speech on the floor of the Senate expressing her position on the filibuster, effectively killing any chance that the Democratic Party’s voting bills would pass.

    After castigating the laws in various states that she claims would “make it more difficult for Americans to vote,” and voicing her support for the two Democratic voting bills — the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act — Sinema said that she would “not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division infecting our country.”

    “There is no need for me to restate my long-standing support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation,” Sinema said. “There’s no need for me to restate its role protecting our country from wild reversals in federal policy. It is a view I have held during my years serving in both the U.S. House and the Senate, and it is the view I continue to hold. It is the belief that I have shared many times in public settings and in private settings.”

    Sinema continued, noting that the 60-vote filibuster threshold can be “maddening,” but that it serves as a “guardrail” that “ensures that millions of Americans represented by the minority party have a voice in the process…”

    After calling on Republicans to “protect access to voting,” Sinema reiterated her longstanding position on our republic: “The dangers facing our democracy took years to metastasize. And they will take years of sustained, focused effort to effectively reverse.”
