The Signal for Help (or the Violence at Home Signal for Help)
is a single-handed gesture that can be used by an individual to alert others that
they feel threatened and need help over a video call, or in-person. It was originally
created as a tool to combat the rise in domestic violence cases around the world
as a result of the self-isolation measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The signal is performed by holding your hand up with your
thumb tucked into your palm, then folding your fingers down, symbolically
trapping your thumb in your fingers. It was intentionally designed as a single
continuous hand movement, rather than a sign held in one position, that could be
made easily visible.
The Signal for Help was first introduced in Canada by the Canadian
Women’s Foundation and in the United States by the Women’s Funding Network
(WFN) in April 2020. It received widespread praise from local, national, and
international news organizations for helping provide a modern solution to the issue
of a rise in domestic violence cases. The signal has been recognized by over 40
organizations across Canada and the United States as a useful tool to help
combat domestic violence.
Addressing concerns that abusers may become aware of such a
widespread online initiative, the Canadian Women’s Foundation and other
organizations clarified that this signal is not “something that’s going to
save the day,” but rather a tool someone could use to get help.
Instructions for what to do if an individual sees the signal, and how to
check-in safely, were also created.

Bill Maher now admits Russiagate was ‘reported erroneously’ after years of promoting Trump-Russia collusion narrative
May 01, 2021

Bill Maher now admits that the Russiagate story that he helped promulgate while Donald Trump was president had elements that were “reported erroneously.” The liberal TV talk show host made the admission on the latest episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
There were hundreds of media outlets and some Democratic politicians that pushed conspiracy theories claiming Trump was colluding with the Russian government, including stories that the former U.S. president was a “handmaid” to Russian President Vladimir Putin because he was blackmailed by kompromat. Veteran journalist Brit Hume went so far as to say the mainstream media’s coverage of the Russia investigation is the “worst journalistic fiasco” he has ever witnessed.
The Russian collusion story came crashing down when Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year “investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
On Friday night, Maher made a confession that the Russian collusion story wasn’t all that the media made it out to be. During a panel discussion about the federal agent raid of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment that took place this week, Maher asked his guests, “Is it political payback, is this politics or is it because what Giuliani and Trump did was unprecedented?”

Where’s the Grand Jury empaneled to investigate this conspiracy?
It couldn’t be that every alleged “journalist” go the story so consistently wrong!
Where is the “Game of Thrones” like parade of naked villains through the streets with someone ringing a bell and crying “shame. SHAME. SHAME!”. Maybe some of the outraged “deplorables” can throw dung at them.
It seems that ‘reported erroneously’ is a HUGE understatement.
The Lame Stream Media has ZERO credibility with me.
RATHERGATE was just a symptom.
