Snarke: Escape from Prison Planet

World Net Daily: France and Ireland are following England in announcing the lifting of a host of COVID-19 restrictions. The Irish Independent reported Friday that the majority of COVID restrictions in Ireland will be removed by 6 a.m. Saturday, including vaccine passports. The paper said the government also will eliminate “limits on household visits, early closing time for hospitality and events, capacity restrictions for indoor and outdoor events including weddings, social distancing, the rule-of-six at a table … and the requirement to maintain contact details for close contact tracing.”

In France, Le Monde reported Prime Minister Jean Castex announced a timetable on Thursday for dispensing with some COVID restrictions. Among them are the mandatory wearing of masks in outdoor locations and the closing of nightclubs and stadiums. The prime minister said the government could suspend its vaccine passports if the situation regarding the pandemic improves further.

These developments come, following Virginia Governor Youngkin’s lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, though a few school districts there are actively resisting his measures to restore civil liberties.

Since being sworn into office, Governor Youngkin has signed executive orders banning Critical Race Theory instruction in schools, mandatory mask-wearing in schools, and mandatory Covid vaccinations; his administration is investigating ‘transgender’ policies in public schools, particularly in Loudon County, where sex crimes against young school girls, in connection with the transgender trend in some school districts, were being concealed from the public. The Gateway Pundit discusses the first 11 executive orders Youngkin signed, which are aimed at restoring common sense, order, and faith in state and local government.

Black Cop who Murdered Ashli Babbitt was Cleared by PD, without an Interview.

World Net Daily: When U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd went on “NBC Nightly News” to tell his side of shooting and killing unarmed Jan. 6 rioter Ashli Babbitt, he made a point to note he’d been investigated by several agencies and exonerated for his actions that day. In fact, investigators cleared Byrd of wrongdoing in the shooting without actually interviewing him about the shooting or threatening him with punishment if he did not cooperate with their criminal investigation.

By avoiding an interrogation, Byrd avoided saying anything that could have been used to incriminate him, including making false statements to federal agents, which would be a felony. Remarkably, he did not formally invoke his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, according to people familiar with his case, which makes the reluctance of authorities to lean on him or sanction him for not cooperating all the more puzzling. By law, federal agencies can persuade employees to cooperate with investigators. Byrd was put on paid administrative leave during the investigative process. Justice delayed is justice denied for Ashli Babbitt.
