    Disgraced former President Barack Obama appears to be in a panic. General Flynn is now in the clear and the Durham investigation is ongoing. More documents are about to drop.

    An audio of former President Barack Obama, whose Administration spied on the Trump team and Administration, was released by deep state reporter Michael Isikoff at Yahoo News on Friday night.

    Obama:

    “The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said during a virtual discussion with members of the Obama Alumni Association. “The fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”

    On Saturday brilliant attorney and Democrat Jonathan Turley schooled former Harvard law student Obama on his ‘leaked’ complaints against President Trump and legal precedent.

    Jonathan Turley tweeted: President Obama is being quoted on Flynn, saying “There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free.” It is a curious statement. First and foremost, Flynn was not charged with perjury. Second, we now know Obama discussed charging Flynn under the Logan Act which has never been used successfully to convict anyone and is flagrantly unconstitutional. Third, this reaffirms reports that Obama was personally invested in this effort. Finally, there is precedent. There is a specific rule allowing for this motion under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 48(a). There are specific Supreme Court cases like Rinaldi v. United States addressing the standard for such dismissals. The Justice Department has dismissed cases in the past including the Stevens case. That was requested by President Obama’s own Attorney General Eric Holder for the same reason: misconduct by prosecutors. It was done before the same judge, Judge Sullivan. How is that for precedent?

    This Oval Office Meeting Attended By Obama and Biden Was Key To the Anti-Trump Plot

    On January 5, 2017, a meeting was held in the Obama White House in the Oval Office. Both President Obama and Vice President Biden attended. This meeting, it turns out, was critical to the anti-Trump operation by the Obama administration, reports Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist. Also in attendance at this meeting was then-CIA Director John Brennan, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, then-national security adviser Susan Rice, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and other members of the national security council.

    It was at this meeting that Barack Obama spoke with Yates and Comey about wiretapped conversations of Trump’s incoming National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the Trump transition, indicating that President Obama was directly knowledgeable of the efforts to surveil the Trump campaign and undermine the incoming administration.

    Top Obama officials have since testified that they never had any empirical evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    As Hemingway notes, “explosive media leaks were a key strategy in the operation to take down Trump.” Per Obama’s direction, information on Russia was “not fully shared with the incoming Trump team” and “the leaks and ambushes made the transition chaotic, scared quality individuals away from working in the administration, made effective governance almost impossible, and materially damaged national security.”

    President Trump has indicated that more damning evidence against Obama and Biden will see the light of day.

    There are rumblings that former members of his FBI (e.g. FBI General Counsel James Baker) have flipped and are working with Durham.

    Obama’s Deep State henchmen who set up General Flynn and the crooked politicians and media hacks who supported them should be experiencing some anxiety.

    “There Is Nothing from the CDC I Can Trust!” – Dr. Birx Tells Off CDC Director, Claims COVID-19 Mortality Rate Inflated By as Much as 25%!

    Earlier this week Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Task Force response administrator, challenged the CDC Director in a heated conversation. Dr. Birx told Dr. Redfield, “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust!”
    Salon.com reported:

    According to a new bombshell report from the Washington Post, the White House Coronavirus Task Force response administrator is doubting the administration’s numbers.

    Dr. Deborah Birx reportedly made the comments during a Wednesday meeting.
    “During a task force meeting Wednesday, a heated discussion broke out between Deborah Birx, the physician who oversees the administration’s coronavirus response, and Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Birx and others were frustrated with the CDC’s antiquated system for tracking virus data, which they worried was inflating some statistics — such as mortality rate and case count — by as much as 25 percent, according to four people present for the discussion or later briefed on it. Two senior administration officials said the discussion was not heated,” the newspaper reported.

    “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,” Birx reportedly said, according to two of the people.  Come on, Dr. Birx,  you can trust the CDC  as much as you can trust the WHO or NSA or CIA or the UN or the CPP….

    New coronavirus case counts are going down in almost half of US states. But it’s too soon to celebrate

    (CNN) First, the good news: In 24 states, the number of new coronavirus cases reported each day is generally going down.

    In 17 states, the numbers are holding steady, according to an analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University. And in nine states, the numbers of new cases are still rising.

    But that doesn’t mean it’s time to celebrate and take off face masks in public.

    As states remove more stay-at-home restrictions, it will take weeks to learn the health effects.

    A poll shows most Americans aren’t yet ready to return to their regular routines.

    And a new study reveals the virus can be spread just by talking, with airborne particles lingering for eight minutes.

    As of Thursday, more than 1.4 million people in the US have been infected with the coronavirus, and more than 85,000 have died, according to Johns Hopkins.

    “The virus is still spreading everywhere”

    Rick Bright, senior advisor with the National Institutes of Health, warned there’s still not enough testing capability in the US.

    “The virus is still spreading everywhere,” Bright told the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on Thursday.

    Bright was ousted last month as director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, a government agency that procures vaccines for the national stockpile.

    Bright claims his ouster was retaliation for his criticism of the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic, including Trump’s touting of the drug hydroxychloroquine.

    “There were some attempts to bypass that rigorous vetting process that caused me great concern,” Bright testified.

    But Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar slammed Bright’s claims, saying he “literally signed” the application for FDA authorization of hydroxychloroquine.

    CDC has reopening “decision trees”

    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday released six so-called “decision trees,” aimed at helping workplaces, communities, schools, day cares, camps and mass transit decide when it’s safe to reopen.

    Documents posted to the CDC’s website provide step-by-step guidance. For example, employers are advised to encourage social distancing, handwashing and intensified cleaning.

    “The purpose of this tool is to assist employers in making (re)opening decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially to protect vulnerable workers,” one reads. “It is important to check with state and local health officials and other partners to determine the most appropriate actions while adjusting to meet the unique needs and circumstances of the local community.”

    The decision trees are very similar, with small adjustments to account for the differences between schools, for instance, and restaurants.

    By Friday, at least 48 states will be partially reopened.

    Wisconsin is among the latest after the state Supreme Court struck down the governor’s stay-at-home order Wednesday, calling it “unlawful” and “unenforceable.”

    It was a victory for Republican state lawmakers, who said Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ administration overstepped its authority when it extended the order to May 26. Those lawmakers said the order would hurt companies and cost residents their jobs.

    Less than an hour after the court’s decision, some revelers celebrated by going to bars. Many ignored health officials’ guidance to stay 6 feet away from each other.

    “First thought, we flipped it right into the parking lot,” Matt Griffin, a customer at The Buzzard’s Nest in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb, told CNN affiliate WTMJ. “And yeah, we’ve got to get in and have a first drink.”

    Not everyone was comfortable opening. The majority owner of the Milwaukee LGBTQ+ bar This is It! told CNN that while he wants to open, he also wants to keep customers and staff safe.

    “The Wisconsin Supreme Court may be a legal authority, but is not a public health authority,” George Schneider said.

    “You wouldn’t take medical advice from a butcher, right? You’d go to your doctor.”

    States consider reopening summer camps

    Some state officials have taken steps toward allowing some typical summer activities in the coming weeks.

    Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo announced her state would allow summer and youth camps to operate in-person beginning June 29, with strict hygiene and social distancing guidelines, such as keeping children in small groups of 10.

    While this is just a goal and subject to change, Raimondo said she believed opening camps was important for kids’ “mental and emotional and intellectual development and health.”

    Similarly, Connecticut officials aim to reopen summer camps on June 29 and open summer schools in July, Gov. Ned Lamont has said.

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said Wednesday that youth summer programs would be allowed with restrictions, such as daily temperature checks, a limited 5:1 child to adult ratio and maintaining 6 feet of distance.

    Meantime, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said beaches will be open by Memorial Day weekend, with capacity restrictions and social distancing. Organized sports, beachfront summer camps and other events that draw people to the beach will remain prohibited.

    Doctors across the country are being warned by the CDC about a troubling new syndrome that seems to be affecting children after they were infected with coronavirus.

    Hospitals and clinics in at least 18 states have reported cases of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children. At least 150 children are under investigation, most of them in New York.

    A 12-year-old girl survived cardiac arrest. Doctors say she had Covid-19 and a Kawasaki-like disease

    “There is limited information currently available about risk factors, pathogenesis, clinical course, and treatment for MIS-C,” the agency said.

    “CDC is requesting healthcare providers report suspected cases to public health authorities to better characterize this newly recognized condition in the pediatric population.”

    Some children have been affected by the virus while battling Covid-19 or after healing, but experts can’t say with complete confidence that both conditions are linked, Dr. Jake Kleinmahon, a pediatric cardiologist at Ochsner Hospital for Children in New Orleans, who has treated at least one case of the syndrome, told CNN.

    But reports from Europe and from several cities in the US show a link, health experts say.

    Expect more cases of strange coronavirus syndrome in kids, doctors warn
    Symptoms include persistent fever, inflammation and poor function in organs such as the kidneys or heart. Children might also have blood vessel inflammation, such as red eyes, a bright red tongue and cracked lips.

    The condition has been described as similar to Kawasaki disease — another inflammatory disease most commonly diagnosed in children — and toxic shock syndrome.

    Study provides new details on air droplets

    A new study reveals talking releases small respiratory droplets that linger in the air for at least eight minutes, potentially explaining why the coronavirus spreads faster in confined spaces.

    Talking loudly for one minute in a confined space could generate at least 1,000 speech droplets containing Covid-19 particles, according to an estimate by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and the University of Pennsylvania.

    “These observations confirm that there is a substantial probability that normal speaking causes airborne virus transmission in confined environments,” the study says.

    CNN’s Ethan Cohen, Liz Stark, Sergio Hernandez, Steve Almasy, Shelby Lin Erdman, Maggie Fox, Matthew Hoye and John Bonifield contributed to this report.

    Richard Burr to step down as Intelligence Committee chairman

    Washington (CNN) Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina is stepping aside as chairman of the influential Senate Intelligence Committee while he’s under investigation for stock trades he made ahead of the market downturn sparked by the coronavirus pandemic.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement Thursday that Burr “contacted me this morning to inform me of his decision to step aside as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee during the pendency of the investigation.” McConnell said Burr’s resignation as chairman will be effective at the end of the day on Friday.

    Burr’s decision to step down as chairman is a stunning development for the North Carolina Republican, who has led the Senate Intelligence Committee through its three-year investigation into Russian election interference that’s nearing completion and affirmed the intelligence community’s conclusion Russia was trying to help President Donald Trump’s candidacy.

    Shortly after McConnell’s announcement, Burr told reporters he was resigning as intelligence chair because “this is a distraction to the hard work of the committee and the members and I think the security of the country is too important to have any distractions.”

    Burr said he has been cooperating with investigators “since the beginning” and will let the investigation play out. Burr has given no thought to resigning from the Senate, he said, and he does not believe he exercised poor judgment with his stock trades. He’ll remain a member of the Intelligence Committee.

    Burr is stepping down after the FBI served his lawyer with a search warrant and Burr surrendered his phone Wednesday, a senior Justice Department official told CNN. The use of the search warrant had been signed off at the highest levels of the Justice Department, as is protocol, the official said.

    The Los Angeles Times first reported the warrant.

    McConnell did not announce who would replace Burr atop the Intelligence Committee. Senate Majority Whip John Thune said Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio, a member of the panel, was likely to become interim chairman. Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Jim Risch of Idaho is next in line in seniority, but Thune said he “doubts” Risch wants to give that post up.

    Thune said Burr “did what he thought was in the best interest of the conference,” but he added that Burr deserves his day in court.

    Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the committee’s top Democrat, declined to comment on Burr’s resignation but said he “got a heads up from him.”

    Burr said he explained his decision to the Senate Republican conference at its closed-door lunch Thursday that he did not want to be a distraction.

    “He was supported,” said Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota.

    Burr sold up to $1.7 million in stocks on single day

    Burr came under fire in March when it was first disclosed that he and his wife made nearly three dozen stock trades worth between $628,000 and $1.7 million on a single day, February 13, according to Senate filings, representing a significant portion of his stock portfolio.

    As chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Burr has received classified briefings on the coronavirus outbreak in addition to closed-door briefings all senators had access to as the virus spread.

    Coronavirus Markets Dashboard
    Burr has said that he made the trades using only publicly available information, not classified briefings. But he asked the Senate Ethics Committee to review the sales in March.

    Congress passed the Stock Act in 2012, which explicitly made it illegal for members of Congress to trade stocks with inside information. There’s no public evidence that Burr broke the law or violated Senate rules with the trades.

    In addition to the trades Burr made on February 13, the senator’s brother-in-law, Gerald Fauth, sold six stocks worth between $97,000 and $280,000 on the same day as Burr. Fauth is a member of the National Mediation Board, which deals with aviation and rail commerce.

    Burr’s attorney, Alice Fisher, said last week that Burr did not coordinate his trades with Fauth.

    “From the outset, Senator Burr has been focused on an appropriate and thorough review of the facts in this matter, which will establish that his actions were appropriate,” Fisher said in a statement Thursday.

    Burr is one of several senators who were scrutinized for their trades made in January and February before the market tanked after the Covid-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on the economy and forced businesses to shutter. CNN reported in March that the FBI and Securities and Exchange Commission had contacted Burr as part of a review of lawmakers’ trades.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, was contacted by the FBI about sales her husband made in a biotech company in January and March, her spokesman said. Feinstein, who has said publicly she had no involvement her husband’s stock trades, was asked basic questions by law enforcement about the transactions and provided additional documentation to show she was not involved, according to her spokesman.

    Feinstein said she never had a conversation with the FBI and has not heard back from them after answering their questions. “I’m pretty scrupulous,” she said about how she keeps separate from husband’s business dealings. “I don’t even know, we don’t discuss.”

    Sen. Kelly Loeffler, a Georgia Republican who was appointed to her Senate seat late last year, also faced public scrutiny for trades she and her husband, New York Stock Exchange chairman Jeffrey Sprecher, made in January and February. Loeffler, who is up for reelection this year, said she had no involvement in the trades made by a financial adviser. She and her husband announced in April they were selling their individual stocks so they would not be a distraction amid the pandemic.

    Asked if Loeffler had been contacted by the FBI, a Loeffler spokesperson said: “No search warrant has been served on Sen Loeffler. She has followed both the letter and spirit of the law and will continue to do so.”

    “That’s too bad,” Trump says

    When Burr’s trades were made public it March, there were calls for the North Carolina Republican to resign not just from watchdog groups, but also conservative allies of the President, such as Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida.

    Trump’s allies are still unhappy with Burr for issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. last year as part of the committee’s Russia probe. They also take issue with the committee’s bipartisan finding that the intelligence community’s assessment was sound that Russia was trying to help Trump win in 2016.

    Trump told reporters Thursday that he had not yet heard about the news Burr was stepping down. “That’s too bad,” he said.

    Asked whether he’d discussed the investigation with the Justice Department or anyone else, Trump said, “I knew nothing about it, nothing about it. No I never discussed it with anybody.”

    Asked Thursday if he thinks he was targeted for his work on the Intelligence Committee, Burr said: “I’m not going to comment on the investigation — you have to ask them about the investigation.”

    Republican senators, meanwhile, reacted cautiously to the news of the FBI’s search warrant for Burr, saying that the investigation had to play out.

    “He’s entitled to the presumption of innocence just like anybody else, and I know he’s asked the Ethics Committee to conduct an investigation as well. So, the best I can tell he is trying to do the right thing by the Senate,” said Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican in Senate leadership.

    Burr’s fellow North Carolina Republican Sen. Thom Tillis, who is up for reelection in 2020, declined to weigh in on whether Burr should remain chairman in a radio interview Thursday before Burr stepped down.

    “I do believe as I said before he owes us all an explanation and I was well aware of the fact that an investigation is moving forward, we just need to see where the investigation ends,” Tillis, said in an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.

    Burr’s trades in March prompted calls for the North Carolina Republican to resign from conservative allies of the President, such as Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida. Trump’s allies are still unhappy with Burr for issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. last year as part of the committee’s Russia probe.

    Senate Republican conference rules state that chairs should step down if they are indicted, but the rules do not make reference to senators who are under investigation.

    Sen. Bob Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, stepped down as ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 2015 after he was indicted. He returned to that post in 2018 after the Justice Department dropped the corruption charges against him.

    Menendez, informed by a reporter that Burr was stepping aside, told reporters Thursday Burr made a “good decision” at this point, that the “proper” call was to step aside as Intelligence chair.

    The Senate’s top Democrat, Chuck Schumer, said on CNBC Thursday that it was “premature” for him to comment on the investigation into Burr.

    “I don’t own any stocks. I’ve told my colleagues in the Senate at the very least it creates the appearance of a conflict, so it’s better not to own any. But I cannot comment on Burr until I know the details,” Schumer said.

    This story has been updated to include additional background information and reaction.

    CNN’s Ted Barrett, Lauren Fox, Evan Perez, David Shortell and Betsy Klein contributed to this report.

    Just How Inflated Are Coronavirus Death Counts?

    Last month, New York funeral home directors blew the whistle about inflated coronavirus death numbers. Death certificates mark “COVID-19” as the cause of death even when the deceased hadn’t tested positive for coronavirus, much less actually died of the virus. This week, a San Diego county supervisor suggested the numbers are even more inflated.

    “We’ve unfortunately had six pure, solely coronavirus deaths — six out of 3.3 million people,” County Supervisor Jim Desmond said on the radio show Armstrong & Getty Extra Large Interviews., The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. San Diego County had reported roughly 190 deaths at the time — the current number is 200.

    Desmond went on to criticize California’s lockdown. “I mean, what number are we trying to get to with those odds. I mean, it’s incredible. We want to be safe, and we can do it, but unfortunately, it’s more about control than getting the economy going again and keeping people safe,” he said.

    In short, Desmond was suggesting that while COVID-19 may have contributed to the 190 deaths, most of those deaths were due in part to previous, unrelated health concerns.

    Indeed, the disease has proven most deadly for people with underlying health conditions, so it stands to reason that “pure, solely coronavirus deaths” would be the minority — perhaps even just 3.2 percent of the total recorded deaths, as Desmond suggested.

    As of Friday afternoon, there have been 87,218 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the U.S. If Desmond’s claim is accurate and if that 3.2 percent rate holds across the country, and discounting the death certificate inflation, that would mean there are only 2,891 “pure, solely coronavirus deaths” in the U.S.

    Since COVID-19 robs an average of 12 years of life from its victims, the lockdowns could save no more than 7.4 million years of life. Meanwhile, the anxiety and stress of the pandemic will cost 42.9 million Americans an average of 1.3 years of life, thus destroying 55.7 million years of life.

    The coronavirus anxiety and stress cost at least 7.5 times more in terms of years of life than the lockdowns could possibly save, according to Just Facts.

    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

    How about some globalist new world order totalitarian depopulationist Agenda 21 crap?

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo dismissed questions regarding a nursing home scandal in his state, saying “nobody” can be prosecuted for those coronavirus deaths because “older people … are going to die from this crisis.”

    Cuomo, despite being a media darling held up as an example of how to handle the pandemic, issued an order directing nursing homes to take in patients that had the highly contagious coronavirus.

    “No resident shall be ­denied readmission or admission to NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19,” the order from March 25th reads.

    Cuomo failed to reverse this directive for six weeks.

    It was a curious move, to say the least, considering the most vulnerable population has been the elderly. This particular action contributed to over 5,400 known deaths in New York nursing homes at this time.

    Cuomo:

    “Nobody was deprived of a bed or medical coverage in any way,” he insisted. “And still people died. Still, people died.”
    “Older people, vulnerable people are going to die from this virus. That is going to happen despite whatever you do,” he continued.
    “Because with all our progress as a society, we can’t keep everyone alive.”

    Not just Cuomo, of course

    Thousands of Germans protest lockdown and vaccine plan by Bill Gates

    (DAILY MAIL) — Thousands of people across Germany are protesting coronavirus lockdown measures over the weekend.

    From anger over lockdown measures to a purported vaccine plan by Bill Gates, the growing wave of demonstrations in Germany by conspiracy theorists, extremists and anti-vaxxers against coronavirus measures has alarmed even Chancellor Angela Merkel.

    Who in this whole world would not want to be vaccinated by Bill Gates?  Seriously, he is a god.

    British Medical Journal:

    Quarantine Has Killed More Seniors Than Covid-19Of the 30,000 “excess deaths” in UK senior homes in April and May, only 10,000 were from Covid-19, according to the British Medical Journal, one of the world’s most respected medical publications.

    Multiple British health officials have conceded that many of the remaining 20,000 excess deaths were related to isolation and diminished access to health care due to severe quarantine conditions.

    According to health officials, the unexplained “excess deaths” may have occurred because the lockdown prevented seniors from accessing health care.

    This is another aspect of the plandemic

    Two GOP Congressmen Sworn-In After Special Election Wins

    The GOP’s minority in the House of Representatives gained two new lawmakers on Tuesday. After winning their special elections in California and Wisconsin, respectively, Reps. Mike Garcia (R-CA) and Tom Tiffany (R-WI) were sworn in by Speaker Pelosi.

    The additions of Reps. Garcia and Tiffany leave the Democrats with a slimmer majority, with vacancies yet to fill.

    Both special election victories represent decisive wins for Republicans. Rep. Garcia’s win in particular is noteworthy, given that former Rep. Katie Hill just flipped the seat in 2018. These wins give the GOP a morale boost as Republicans seek to take the majority in the House back in November.

    Gerald Walpin, the inspector general of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), was fired, in violation of the 2008 Inspector General Reform Act, while he was investigating Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA basketball star and Obama supporter.

    Johnson was being investigated for misusing federal AmeriCorps grant money. During his investigation, Walpin uncovered a cover-up of Johnson sexual abuse of underage girls, whom he attempted to pay hush money with that AmeriCorps money.

    Obama broke the law to protect a donor and ally who had misused federal grant money and sexually abused three underage girls, but Biden can’t remember that? Obviously Obama would want to “forget” it because after the illegal firing, the White House launched a bogus smear campaign against Walpin, accusing him of being senile and interfering with investigations (allegations he was cleared of following an investigation) and the Obama administration misled and stonewalled a congressional investigation into the matter. That’s right, Congress literally investigated the firing, but Biden wants us to believe he can’t remember that.

    The headline:

    Joe Biden Blindsided After Being Reminded that Obama Fired an Inspector General

    Media, NGOs Outraged as Hungary Defines Sex as Biological

    NGOs and mainstream media outlets characterised the country’s right-wing populist leader, Viktor Orbán, as an “autocrat” in pushing through the legislation

    Activists and the media claim Hungary is being driven “back towards the dark ages” after the country voted to define gender based on biological sex.

    NGOs and mainstream media outlets characterised the country’s right-wing populist leader, Viktor Orbán, as an “autocrat” in pushing through the legislation, which defines gender as “biological sex based on primary sex characteristics and chromosomes”.

    Imagine that, basing legislation on science!  Unheard of!
