  1. Like the New York police warehouse fire holding “confiscated assets too big for regular storage facilities”, how far will the forces of darkness go to silence SBF? What “large asset(s) were in that NY warehouse? Chuck Schumer’s ego? Oprah Winfrey’s underpants? The ghost of Epstein’s killer? Bill Clinton’s meaning of “is”? The quintessence of American political rot? Soros’s loathing for his own people? Secret love letters between Zelensky and Putin? The keys to value-added viruses? The keys to the Southern border?

    It seems like in an era where we’ve been conditioned to expect the unexpected we go unsatisfied because of the one massive asset that remains missing: the elephant of truth and justice in a time of fraud and unaccountability. Perhaps an inventory of Bahama jail inmates would be a good idea about now.

  2. The difference between competing cultures of corruption and fraud is, in my opinion, style, for lack of a better word. The Western style driven by feminized wokeism and scientism doesn’t translate to the Eastern, old-fashioned plain-faced thuggery where might makes right. The East listens to what comes out of the West and says, “yeah, right.”

    The Communists trying to steal an election and take over the county of Brazil are now threatening to arrest beautiful First Lady Michelle Bolsonaro for serving meals to protestors.

    Leftist Senator Randolfe Rodigues called for the arrest of beautiful First Lady Michelle Bolsonaro for the crime of serving meals to protestors.

    The crazy Communist called serving meals to supporters “political support for undemocratic acts” and “material support” that indicates “the authoritarians are supported by the current inhabitants of the Palace themselves.”

    TRENDING

    President Jair Bolsonaro said in a written statement Tuesday that “Brazil always has faith in the impeccable performance of its Armed Forces in defense of our homeland and of the freedom of the Brazilian people”. Bolsonaro attended the Sailor’s Day military ceremony on Tuesday. It is still not clear whether the military will act to defend Brazilian democracy from the egregious election fraud of Oct. 30. At least the Fedussrrection seems to have backfired, thanks to social media and the peaceful patience of Bolsonaristas, many of whom prefer to express themselves in Christian prayer

      BUSTED: Video has emerged showing presumed infiltrators among protestors in Brasilía Monday night, when five busses and six cars were torched, for which Bolsonaro supporters were blamed. “Conservatives don’t torch cars”, said businessman Otávio Fakhoury.

      Following the brutal arrest of indigenous leader José Acácio Serere Xavante by Federal Police in front of his wife and children Monday for the crime of protesting, violence broke out in the Brazilian capital, with Bolsonaro supporters allegedly attempting to storm police HQ and free Xavante.

      The son of Chief Serere Xavante accused the Federal Police of pointing a gun at his head while they arrested his father. The young man said the family was in their pickup truck when they were suddenly and violently apprehended by the Federales. The boy tried to help his father, which is when the officers pointed the gun at his head.

    Twitter banned The New York Post and censored The Gateway Pundit at the time for their reporting on crackhead Hunter and his illegal dealings.

    But before Elon released his information on Twitter officials colluding with Democrats to silence their conservative opposition, Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai uncovered Twitter’s secret “partner support portal” that included government officials, Democrats and top Twitter associates.

  7. EXCLUSIVE – ANDREW WEISSMANN PART XIV: “A Desecration of a Prosecutor… Has Disgraced Every Single Ethical Tenet that Prosecutors Hold Dear” – Rudy Giuliani on Weissmann

    Andrew Weissmann was intimately involved in some of the most egregious corruption scandals in US history. Weissmann was involved in FBI activities with the mob in New York in the 1990s. He was a key member of the Enron Task Force in the early 2000s and also was involved in the sale of Uranium One under Obama. After all of his corrupt acts, he then led the corrupt Mueller Special Counsel.

    In all of these scandals, Weissmann’s actions have been consistently corrupt and abhorrent.

    Attorney Sidney Powell shared the following with Joe Hoft at The Gateway Pundit about Andrew Weissmann:

    The hallmark of the Department of Justice for decades has been to seek justice not convictions and if that meant letting a guilty person go free to make sure the government did it all right, then that was supposed to happen

    But Mr. Weissman, he couldn’t spell the word “ethics” despite the fact somebody actually had him teach a course in it one time, I think over in England. His mantra is ‘the end justifies the means’… he targets people, individuals. And you’re right, I had no doubt from the moment he was picked for the Mueller Special Counsel operation, that he would have filed RICO charges against President Trump and seized every asset he ever had, if there had been any way he could do that.

    He’s just filled with hatred for apparently most Americans and certainly anybody affiliated with President Trump. And he’s willing to do anything to destroy them.

    On Tuesday The Gateway Pundit was thrilled to interview American icon, Rudy Giuliani.

    For over a half hour Rudy Giuliani discussed the details of his investigation into the Biden Family and their years of criminal activity in Ukraine. Rudy was later harassed and slandered by the media for his disclosures only to be later exonerated as the truth of the corruption of the Biden family came to light

    It was also Rudy Giuliani who exposed the Hunter Biden laptop to the world. This was yet another major story that the mainstream liberal media initially lied about and hid from the American public but now finally admits legitimate and accurate.

    Rudy Giuliani is a man of integrity. When he is challenged by his leftist detractors he lets time prove him right

    During our discussion Rudy talked about his history with Joe Biden,

    “I didn’t know that Biden had a career of raking in a lot of money. I knew Biden for 30 years. I knew him to be a relatively nice guy, a complete dope. I used to joke around and say he’s not only the dopiest man in the Senate, he’s probably one of the dopiest men, period… But I never thought of him as a crook. So this kind of stunned me. They said, of course, they know he’s very open to taking bribes.”

  9. Ron Paul: Mother Of All Economic Crisis Will Lead To “Social Unrest & Violence”

    Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

    Nouriel Roubini, a former advisor to the International Monetary Fund and member of President Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisors, was one of the few “mainstream” economists to predict the collapse of the housing bubble. Now Roubini is warning that the staggering amounts of debt held by individuals, businesses, and the government will soon lead to the “mother of all economic crises.”

    Roubini properly blames the creation of a debt-based economy on the near-or-at-zero interest rate and quantitative easing policies pursued by the Federal Reserve and other central banks. The inevitable result of the zero-interest and quantitative easing policies is price inflation wreaking havoc on the American people.

    The Fed has been trying to eliminate price inflation with a series of interest rate increases. So far, these rate increases have not significantly reduced price inflation. This is because rates remain at historic lows. Yet the rate increases have had negative economic effects, including a decline in the demand for new homes. Increasing interest rates make it impossible for many middle- and working-class Americans to afford a monthly mortgage payment for even a relatively inexpensive home

  10. CNN – What parents should know about Covid vaccine boosters for kids age 5 and under

    Last week, the US Food and Drug Administration authorized the bivalent Covid-19 booster for children 6 months to 5 years old. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has since recommended the booster, and now everyone 6 months and older is able to receive the updated coronavirus vaccine except kids who got three doses produced by Pfizer/BioNTech.

    Which young children are now eligible to receive the booster? What if kids haven’t started or completed the full series — do they now get the updated booster or the original monovalent vaccine? Can parents and guardians choose between the updated booster and the original shot? What are possible side effects? What if kids had Covid-19 already? And which families should consider the updated booster now and who could wait?

    To help us answer these questions, I spoke with CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician, public health expert, and professor of health policy and management at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. She is also author of “Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health” and the mother of two young children, ages 2 and 5.

    CNN: Let’s start with what has just changed in the recommendations: Which young children who received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are now eligible to receive the booster?

    Dr. Leana Wen: There are two vaccines authorized for young children: Moderna and Pfizer. For the youngest age group, the Moderna vaccine was designed to be a two-dose primary vaccine, while the Pfizer version was designed to be a three-dose primary vaccine. That means young children are considered to have completed their primary series if they completed two doses of the Moderna vaccine or if they completed three doses of Pfizer.

    As a reminder, there is now a bivalent booster available for older children and adults. This combines the original (also called monovalent) vaccine with a vaccine that specifically targets the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron subvariants. Because Omicron subvariants constitute virtually all new infections, the hope is that the bivalent booster will provide better, more directed protection.

    What federal health officials have now said is that children 6 months through 5 years old who received both doses of the original Moderna vaccine are able to get the updated bivalent vaccine — if it has been at least two months since they completed the primary vaccine series.

    For children who received the Pfizer vaccine, the guidance is a little different, because the primary series already involves three doses. Federal health officials have said that children 6 months through 4 years old who have not yet completed their three vaccine doses can receive the third dose as the bivalent vaccine. Let’s say a child has started this series and has had one or two doses of the original Pfizer vaccine. The third dose can now be the updated booster.

    CNN: What if kids haven’t started or completed the full series — do they now get the updated booster or the original monovalent vaccine?

    Wen: The answer is different for Moderna vs. Pfizer. For Moderna, the primary series is two doses, so a child needs to complete the two initial shots with the original formulation. The booster — the third dose — is the bivalent vaccine. For Pfizer, the primary series is three doses. The first two doses still need to be the original formulation, but the third shot is now the bivalent vaccine.

    CNN: What about young children who completed three doses of the Pfizer vaccine — are they eligible for a fourth dose?

    Wen: No. The FDA explicitly says that children 6 months through 4 years old who have completed their three-dose primary series with the original Pfizer vaccine are not eligible for a fourth shot of the bivalent booster. That’s because the primary series of three vaccine doses is still expected to have strong protection against severe illness to Omicron. This recommendation will be reevaluated as new data comes out.

    CNN: Can parents and caregivers who have not completed the primary series of Moderna choose the bivalent vaccine as their second dose?

    Wen: No. The FDA authorization for the adult primary series for Moderna — the two doses — is for the original monovalent vaccine. Similarly, there is no choice for which vaccine formulation is administered as the booster for Pfizer in adults. Only the bivalent booster is available as the third shot, not the original monovalent, which is still given as doses one and two. This mirrors the authorization given for adults — the primary series is the monovalent vaccine, with the only booster for Pfizer and Moderna for adults being the updated booster.

    CNN: What are possible side effects from the updated booster?

    Wen: It’s expected that children who get the updated booster will have similar types of side effects to the original vaccines. These side effects tend to be mild and short-lasting, usually resolving in the first 24 hours after inoculation. Adverse reactions can include pain and swelling in the injection site, fatigue, crankiness, sleepiness, headache, muscle aches and sometimes fever. Many children experience no side effects. The risk of serious side effects, such as myocarditis (an inflammation of the heart muscle), is expected to be exceedingly rare in this younger age group.

    CNN: What if kids had Covid-19 already?

    Wen: People who had Covid-19 can wait three months until after they have recovered from the coronavirus to receive another vaccine dose, according to the CDC. They probably have very good protection against infection in this period.

    Many studies have shown that hybrid immunity — recovery from Covid-19 combined with vaccination — conveys very strong protection, arguably even more so than vaccination and boosters alone. In my opinion, I believe a case can be made that if a young child received the primary series and already had Covid, they could wait to receive another booster dose. This is especially true if they had Covid recently, in the last year. To my knowledge, there is no research that shows additional benefit of boosters to young children who recently had Covid-19 infection and who have received their primary vaccinations.

    CNN: Which families should consider the updated booster now and who should wait?

    Wen: First, I think it’s important to point out that the uptake of the primary series of the Covid-19 vaccines among young children is very low. According to the CDC, less than 5% of kids 5 and younger are fully vaccinated. That means we are referring to a very small pool of kids newly eligible for the updated boosters.

    There’s one group that I would definitely recommend getting the updated booster. That’s the group of kids who received their first one or two doses of the Pfizer vaccine. These kids need to complete their primary series. The third dose of that series is now the updated bivalent booster. There’s no reason for families of these children to wait; they should complete the primary series, and it’s a bonus that the third dose is updated to target Omicron.

    For children who received the two doses of the Moderna vaccine, I think the decision-making is different and will depend on families’ individual circumstances. Some families are very concerned about Covid-19 infection. Perhaps their child has underlying medical conditions, or they live with someone who is elderly, immunocompromised or otherwise very vulnerable to severe outcomes from Covid-19. Perhaps the family is welcoming a newborn soon, and that baby will be particularly vulnerable to coronavirus infection. I think it’s reasonable to decide that, since Covid-19 cases are rising, this is the time to get their young child the updated booster.

    I also think it’s reasonable to wait. My children (ages 2 and 5) received the Moderna vaccines over the summer. They are eligible to be boosted, but I am holding off because the protection that they have against severe illness remains strong. The booster will convey additional protection against symptomatic infection, but that effect is probably short-lasting, according to a June study.

    To be clear, I believe it’s crucial for older adults and vulnerable individuals to receive the updated booster. I also think it’s generally a good thing that people can choose the booster if they wish, as there are compelling individual reasons for different households.

    Parents and caregivers who have questions should consult their pediatrician to decide the best course of action for their family’s specific circumstances. Finally, families whose children have yet to receive any Covid-19 vaccines should consider starting, especially if their kids are not known to have had Covid-19.

    • DEC 13 2022 – YAHOO – People who skipped their COVID vaccine are at higher risk of traffic accidents, according to a new study

      If you passed on getting the COVID vaccine, you might be a lot more likely to get into a car crash.

      Or at least those are the findings of a new study published this month in The American Journal of Medicine. During the summer of 2021, Canadian researchers examined the encrypted government-held records of more than 11 million adults, 16% of whom hadn’t received the COVID vaccine.

      They found that the unvaccinated people were 72% more likely to be involved in a severe traffic crash —in which at least one person was transported to the hospital—than those who were vaccinated. That’s similar to the increased risk of car crashes for people with sleep apnea, though only about half that of people who abuse alcohol, researchers found.

      The excess risk of car crash posed by unvaccinated drivers “exceeds the safety gains from modern automobile engineering advances and also imposes risks on other road users,” the authors wrote.

      Of course, skipping a COVID vaccine does not mean that someone will get into a car crash. Instead, the authors theorize that people who resist public health recommendations might also “neglect basic road safety guidelines.”

      Why would they ignore the rules of the road? Distrust of the government, a belief in freedom, misconceptions of daily risks, “faith in natural protection,” “antipathy toward regulation,” poverty, misinformation, a lack of resources, and personal beliefs are potential reasons proposed by the authors.

      The findings are significant enough that primary care doctors should consider counseling unvaccinated patients on traffic safety—and insurance companies might base changes to insurance policies on vaccination data, the authors suggest.

      First responders may also consider taking precautions to protect themselves from COVID when responding to traffic crashes, the authors added, as it’s more likely that a driver is unvaccinated than vaccinated.

      “The findings suggest that unvaccinated adults need to be careful indoors with other people and outside with surrounding traffic,” the authors concluded.

      This isn’t the first time that researchers have examined the link between behavior and vaccination status. Among young adults, a 2021 study published in the Journal of Bioeconomics found a correlation between self-reported risky driving and having skipped their flu vaccine. It examined the survey responses of more than 100,000 Canadians.

    Following the government delegation’s visit to France, Ukraine will receive about 1.5 billion euros in aid to restore infrastructure.

    “About 1.5 billion euros in aid. This is the result of the government team’s visit to France. Following the Conference ‘Solidarity with the Ukrainian People’, EUR 1 billion was raised. Part of them is the equipment that will be handed over in the near future to restore Ukraine’s energy infrastructure,” Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal posted on Telegram.

    He added that several agreements were reached worth more than EUR 530 million on the development of digital sphere and rapid reconstruction of infrastructure.

    According to Shmyhal, the officials agreed on a common vision of war risk insurance for business and the supply of missile defense systems by France.

    The key issue was nuclear safety. Ukraine is gradually moving in this direction together with IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi and President of France Emmanuel Macron.

    Shmyhal thanked the President of France for organizing the conference and providing strong support for Ukraine in its fight for freedom and democracy.

    As reported, the international conference “Solidarity with the Ukrainian people”, jointly organized by France and Ukraine, was held in Paris on Tuesday. The purpose of the event was to unite partners, donors, multilateral institutions, and non-governmental organizations to provide support to the Ukrainian people.

    President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Ukraine would receive EUR 1 billion in aid, mainly for the energy sector. Several countries made decisions on new aid packages for Ukraine.
