But it really is refreshing to hear things like natural immunity, individual choice, as well as pointing out the fact that mandates don’t work. Near universal vaccination status has not stopped the surges.

The thing that still sticks with me from our interview of Jimmy Song a number of months ago was the security value. Having a way to secure money and information that is secure from governments — that’s looking more and more advantageous. Jimmy Song told us about missionaries and refugees already using Bitcoin to protect their assets from antagonistic politicians.
Judge Ejects MSNBC from Kyle Rittenhouse Courthouse After ‘Extremely Serious’ Incident of Freelancer Allegedly Following Jury Bus
Judge Bruce Schroeder has ejected liberal cable news organization MSNBC from the Kenosha County Courthouse for the remaining duration of the Kyle Rittenhouse homicide trial.
Schroeder said the court received a report from the Kenosha Police Department that an individual who indicated he was employed by MSNBC ran a red light while authorities think he may have been following a “sealed bus” containing the Rittenhouse jury. But NBC News said the authorities were mistaken as to the individual’s intent.

The individual ticketed, who Schroeder identified as James Morrison, said he was operating under the supervision of Irene Byon. Schroeder said Morrison identified Byon as an MSNBC manager in New York.
In a subsequent statement to Law&Crime, NBC News characterized the situation differently.
“Last night, a freelancer received a traffic citation,” an NBC News spokesperson said. “While the traffic violation took place near the jury van, the freelancer never contacted or intended to contact the jurors during deliberations, and never photographed or intended to photograph them. We regret the incident and will fully cooperate with the authorities on any investigation.”
The Kenosha Police Department issued yet another version of the events via twin tweets on Thursday afternoon.
“Last night a person who is alleging to be affiliated with a national media outlet was briefly taken into custody and issued several traffic related citations,” the first tweet read. “Police suspect this person was trying to photograph jurors. This incident is being investigated much further.”
“There was no breach of security regarding the jury, nor were there any photographs obtained,” the second tweet indicated. “This investigation remains active and open, no further information.”
Elsewhere on Twitter, some court reporters claimed that it is common practice for reports to trail jury buses in hopes of identifying jury members’ license plates for contact after a verdict is rendered.
