    Armed groups in U.S. protest coronavirus shutdown

    In the not-so-united United States, conservative-backed protests against state-ordered quarantines have erupted in a number of cities. Seeing an opportunity to push his open America agenda, U.S. president Donald Trump has encouraged the anti-shutdown demonstrations, which have included armed groups among the participants who are clamoring for an end to the stay-at-home orders.  Many state governors, however, insist that opening for business too soon and without adequate testing would lead to a sharp jump in coronavirus infections.

    America is not immune

    NORTH CAROLINA - One of the more absurd claims is the assertion by a kook rabbi in Israel (where there are many of the same ilk) that the coronavirus (Covid 19) that is sweeping across the world won’t halt creating its trail of devastation and dislocation until the so-called “third temple” is built in East Jerusalem, presumably atop the rubble of a destroyed al-Aqsa mosque and the Qubba al-Sakra. This rabbi, one Aryeh Lipo, a “religious studies” teacher who is a Likudist, apparently gave a lesson on the Haram esh-Sharif with a bunch of other unwelcome Zionists saying a “third temple” is a powerful cure for the coronavirus pandemic which now even Iran is struggling to corral and eliminate.

It comes as no surprise that the propagandistic approach is adopted by governments generally, and by their instruments in totalitarian states.”
