  1. NYT – MARCH 21 2023 -Wuhan Market Samples Contained Covid and Animal Mixtures, Report Says

    In a much-anticipated study, experts described a swab that was positive for the coronavirus and contained loads of genetic material from raccoon dogs.

    On Jan. 12, 2020, Chinese investigators combing a market for clues about the outbreak of a mysterious new illness in the city of Wuhan swabbed a cart. It was the kind typically used for transporting animal cages, and it came back positive for the coronavirus.

    Three years later, a team of international experts has sifted through the genetic contents of that swab, which were quietly uploaded to an international database and made public only this year. In a report released on Monday night, the scientists described in detail for the first time evidence from the swab that they say strengthens the case that illegally traded wild animals ignited the coronavirus pandemic.

    Chinese researchers who had originally uploaded the raw data had it removed from the database after they were contacted by the international team. Now administrators of the database itself have cut off access to the international scientists for what they said were rules violations, raising questions about the database’s own role in the tug of war over access to data that could shed light on the origins of a virus that has killed seven million people.

    Along with genetic signatures of the coronavirus, the swab from the cart contained more than 4,500 lengthy fragments of genetic material from raccoon dogs, the report said. It had none from humans. Some Covid-positive swabs taken from other objects and surfaces at the market, the report said, also had more genetic material from animals than from humans.

    Finding genetic footprints from animals in the same place as genetic material from the virus does not prove that the animals themselves were infected. But some scientists who reviewed the report said that the dominance of genetic material from animals — and especially raccoon dogs — suggested that species known to be able to spread the coronavirus were indeed carrying infections at the market in late 2019.

    That scenario, they said, was consistent with the virus spilling into humans from market animals and touching off the pandemic, a set of circumstances similar to the one that gave rise to the first SARS outbreak in China two decades earlier.

    “You look at them and say those are probably infected animals,” Theodora Hatziioannou, a virologist at The Rockefeller University in New York who was not involved in the research, said of the latest findings. “If it was a human shedding the virus, one would expect to find human DNA there, too.”

    The swabs could yet hold more clues about where the virus in the samples had come from. The report said, for instance, that there was evidence of particular genes that could suggest the material had come from a raccoon dog’s upper respiratory tract.

    Even if an animal had been infected, however, it would not be clear that it had spread the virus to people. Someone infected with the virus could have gotten a market animal sick. And only by swabbing animals directly could scientists prove whether they had been carrying the virus, a step that was precluded by the market being cleared of animals soon after the outbreak began.

    The report has been the subject of intense speculation since the international experts presented their findings to the World Health Organization last week and then raced to compile their analyses. At the same time, the findings set off a battle for access to the genetic sequences at their heart.

    Chinese scientists had initially uploaded the raw sequences to a global database some time after publishing a study describing them last year. But once the international experts discovered the data in early March and alerted Chinese researchers to what they had found, the data was taken offline.

    Last week, the W.H.O. rebuked China for hiding such crucial information from the rest of the world for three years. Now the nonprofit organization based in Munich that runs the database, called GISAID, has come under scrutiny for its role in controlling access to the data.

    In the new report, the international team of scientists said that GISAID had “deviated from its stated mission” in allowing the Chinese researchers to withhold the data for so long.

    The database administrators responded to the report on Tuesday by cutting off the team members’ access to their online accounts and saying that they had violated its rules by getting out ahead of the Chinese scientists and posting their own analysis. The scientists said that they hewed to GISAID’s database-access agreement in downloading and studying the sequences, and noted that they had made multiple offers to work with the Chinese scientists.

    “The ramifications of cutting off access to this group of authors are huge,” said Michael Worobey, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Arizona and co-author of the new report, noting that GISAID also jeopardized work by team members related to coronavirus variants and flu preparedness. “They’re making false accusations.”

    The international team homed in on raccoon dogs — fluffy mammals related to foxes and sold for meat and fur — because of how much of the animals’ genetic material was found in the key swab from the cart and because they are known to spread the virus. They said their findings were consistent with that animal harboring the virus, which originated in bats, and passing it to humans at the market.

    “This isn’t an infected animal,” said Joel Wertheim, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California, San Diego and a co-author of the report, referring to the new genetic data. “But this is the closest you can get without having the animal in front of you.”

    The report, though, also offered the most concrete evidence to date of other animals susceptible to the virus being sold at the market, noted Kristian Andersen, a virologist at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., and a co-author of the report. Genetic material from those animals — like the masked palm civet, a small Asian mammal that was implicated in the SARS outbreak two decades ago — was also found in swabs that were positive for the coronavirus.

    “It’s literally Disney Land for zoonotic transfer,” said Joseph DeRisi, a professor of biochemistry at the University of California, San Francisco, and president of the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, referring to the range of animals documented in the report.

    A number of other swabs at the market found large quantities of human genetic material — an indication, the report said, of certain virus samples likely being shed by infected people. Many of the earliest known Covid patients worked or shopped at the market.

    Still other positive swabs, the report said, were dominated by genetic material from animals that are not believed to be susceptible to the virus. A sample taken from a fish packaging surface, for example, contained a lot of fish genetic material. That virus was likely to have been deposited by a person, scientists said, illustrating that substantial amounts of animal genetic material did not necessarily mean that animals had produced the virus there.

    Citing those findings, some scientists said that the kinds of swabs analyzed in the report simply could not offer conclusive proof of an infected animal.

    “The report does contain useful information,” Sergei Pond, a virologist at Temple University in Philadelphia, said. But, he added, “Does it tell you anything about which animal was infected? It really doesn’t.”

    Dr. David Relman, a microbiologist at Stanford, said that it was difficult to assess the findings without more details about how the Chinese investigators had collected and analyzed their swabs. The Chinese paper last year, he noted, described using a kit to filter out human genetic material and make the tests more sensitive to the virus.

    But a number of swabs from the Chinese researchers described in the international team’s report contained substantial amounts of human genetic material, suggesting that those filtering methods had not depleted the samples of human material. Dr. DeRisi, who specializes in the type of analysis described in the report, said that such kits were generally ineffective at removing the genetic signatures of people.

    Frederic Bushman, a microbiologist at the University of Pennsylvania who also specializes in sequencing techniques, agreed that the report’s methods were sound.

    “I think the simplest explanation is that it’s an infected raccoon dog,” he said. “I don’t think it’s absolute proof.”

      Last night, The Atlantic – of course it was The Atlantic – had BREAKING NEWS!

      And by BREAKING NEWS I mean yet another migraine-inducing story purporting to show that Sars-Cov-2 emerged naturally, rather than leaking from a lab.

      Before we get to the story, which takes about two seconds to debunk, it’s worth nothing that even Dr. Anthony S. Fauci is in the process of giving up on the natural origins theory.

      On CNN on Sunday, he claimed that even if Sars-COV-2 escaped from a lab after scientists found it in a cave and transported it for research, he would consider that a naturally occurring outbreak.


      I say again, what?

      Assume this version of events is true. It’s not. Chinese scientists were definitely performing “gain-of-function” research on coronaviruses in Wuhan, and the odds are overwhelming that it was one of those viruses that leaked. We know this for several reasons, including that Sars-Cov-2 has certain features that largely do not exist in wild bat coronaviruses but are common in engineered coronaviruses.

      Further, Fauci’s theory makes no sense because if the Chinese had found Sars-COV-2 in a wild bat and transported it, they would have had every reason to go back to the cave where they’d found it the first time and get it again, thus PROVING it was naturally occurring. They’d know exactly where to get it! They wouldn’t have to look. They could have done so immediately (or after a couple of months had passed and they’d destroyed all the evidence that they’d ever found it before).

      But let’s pretend Fauci’s theory makes sense. Let’s say that researchers found Sars-COV-2 in a wild bat, and brought it to a lab, where it leaked.

      How can he, or anyone, call that a “natural occurrence”? The virus was stuck in a cave in a bat, like innumerable other coronaviruses since time immemorial. Where is the evidence it ever would have infected a human, much less caused a worldwide epidemic, had virologists not given it every possible opportunity to do so, by bringing it to the middle of a 10-million-person city and then trying to grow it?

      If SARS-Cov-2 leaked from a lab, that’s a lab leak. Even Tony Fauci can’t spin that reality away.

      But back to the Atlantic. Which breathlessly reported yesterday that we now have genetic evidence that raccoon dogs and the coronavirus were both at the “Huanan Seafood Market” – the live animal market in the middle of Wuhan where some early coronavirus cases were reported – in December 2019.

      “The Strongest Evidence Yet That an Animal Started the Pandemic,” the Atlantic proclaimed.


      Hold up.

      WE ALREADY KNEW THAT RACCOON DOGS WERE KEPT AT THE HUANAN SEAFOOD MARKET. We’ve known that for years. And of course we already knew that infected people came to the market; that’s why the people who don’t want to admit that Sars-Cov-2 leaked from a lab keeps proposing it as a source.

      In fact, we went through this very nonsense MORE THAN A YEAR AGO.

    • China approves first domestic mRNA vaccine for COVID-19

      China has approved its first locally developed messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine against COVID-19, its manufacturer said Wednesday, months after the relaxation of strict COVID-zero regulations sparked a surge in cases.

      The vaccine, developed by CSPC Pharmaceutical Group Ltd, has been approved for “emergency use” by Beijing’s health regulator, the company said in a statement.

      It showed high efficacy in a trial in which it was used as a booster shot for people who have been given other types of vaccines, the company added, without offering further details.

      mRNA vaccines are considered among the most effective in reducing severe infections and deaths.

      While traditional vaccines use a weakened or inactivated germ to prepare the body for a future attack from the real virus, mRNA deploys snippets of genetic material that carry instructions showing the body’s cells how to produce a protein—in this case, the spike protein on the coronavirus that causes COVID.

      The body’s immune system then triggers antibodies to fight off that spike protein, making it ready for when the real coronavirus comes knocking.

      Beijing has refused to greenlight mRNA-based vaccines from foreign firms Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna for public use.

      Its vaccination shortfall was widely believed to have led to more severe infections and deaths after lockdowns and mandatory quarantine rules were suddenly dropped in December.

      Other Chinese drugmakers including CanSino have previously said they were developing mRNA-based shots to help the country bridge its immunization gap.

    • OTTAWA – Thousands call for removal of ‘mask-obsessed’ Ottawa school board trustee

      More than 3,000 people have signed a petition calling for the removal of a “left-wing, mask-obsessed” doctor from the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB).

      The appeal describes Dr. Nili Kaplan-Myrth as “outrageous” and that she “displays her disdain” for concerned parents’ right to speak.

      The petition, started by Remi Duranleau, stems from a March 7 incident, in which a father respectfully voiced his concerns about the board’s policy “allowing any individual who chooses to identify as female to share bathroom and change room spaces with his 12-year-old daughter.”

      Kaplan-Myrth reportedly muted the man’s microphone without warning, putting an end to his allotted time, and told him his statement was “creating an unsafe environment for people who identify as gender diverse.”

      She told the Ottawa Citizen the following day, “There is no way to frame it other than transphobia.”

      The petition states: “Not only has this action on her part generated a tremendous amount of anger in the community towards the school board, it opens up the school board to being liable for slander and defamation because her comments were inaccurate and out of line.”

      It continued: “Her need for control of a narrative is clearly demonstrated in her behaviour.”

      The petition, which had more than 3,200 signatures at press time, asks: “Is this how a parent peacefully and respectfully expressing a legitimate concern should be treated by an elected official of a publicly funded institution?”

      He accused her of “creating unrest in the community,” particularly with those who may not share her views or approach.

      Kaplan-Myrth, who did not respond to The Toronto Sun’s requests for comment, took to Twitter to demand that take down the petition because it is “transphobic.”

      “Not OK,” she tweeted: “@Change, do you allow your platform to be used to discriminate against #LGBTQIA? Because that’s what these people are doing.

      She added: “If you don’t condone it, shut it down. We must continue to speak against transphobia, homophobia, racism, antisemitism, misogyny. #EnoughIsEnough.”

        An unidentified object shot down by the U.S. military on Sunday above Lake Huron was destroyed using missiles costing over $450,000 each.

        The Pentagon said in a statement Sunday that President Joe Biden, at the direction of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and other military leaders, ordered an F-16 to fire an AIM-9x Sidewinder missile to shoot down the airborne object flying at approximately 20,000 feet altitude in U.S. airspace over Michigan.

      The Biden Administration continues to conceal its responsibility for the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines

      It’s been six weeks since I published a report, based on anonymous sourcing, naming President Joe Biden as the official who ordered the mysterious destruction last September of Nord Stream 2, a new $11-billion pipeline that was scheduled to double the volume of natural gas delivered from Russia to Germany. The story gained traction in Germany and Western Europe, but was subject to a near media blackout in the US. Two weeks ago, after a visit by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to Washington, US and German intelligence agencies attempted to add to the blackout by feeding the New York Times and the German weekly Die Zeit false cover stories to counter the report that Biden and US operatives were responsible for the pipelines’ destruction.

      Press aides for the White House and Central Intelligence Agency have consistently denied that America was responsible for exploding the pipelines, and those pro forma denials were more than enough for the White House press corps. There is no evidence that any reporter assigned there has yet to ask the White House press secretary whether Biden had done what any serious leader would do: formally “task” the American intelligence community to conduct a deep investigation, with all of its assets, and find out just who had done the deed in the Baltic Sea. According to a source within the intelligence community, the president has not done so, nor will he. Why not? Because he knows the answer.

      Sarah Miller—an energy expert and an editor at Energy Intelligence, which publishes leading trade journals—explained to me in an interview why the pipeline story has been big news in Germany and Western Europe. “The destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines in September led to a further surge of natural gas prices that were already six or more times pre-crisis levels,” she said. “Nord Stream was blown up in late September. German gas imports peaked a month later, in October, at 10 times pre-crisis levels. Electricity prices across Europe were pulled up, and governments spent as much as 800 billion euros, by some estimates, shielding households and businesses from the impact. Gas prices, reflecting the mild winter in Europe, have now fallen back to roughly a quarter of the October peak, but they are still between two and three times pre-crisis levels and are more than three times current US rates. Over the last year, German and other European manufacturers closed their most energy-intensive operations, such as fertilizer and glass production, and it’s unclear when, if ever, those plants will reopen. Europe is scrambling to get solar and wind capacity in place, but it may not come soon enough to save large chunks of German industry.” (Miller writes a blog on Medium.)

      In early March, President Biden hosted German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Washington. The trip included only two public events—a brief pro forma exchange of compliments between Biden and Scholz before the White House press corps, with no questions allowed; and a CNN interview with Scholz by Fareed Zakaria, who did not touch on the pipeline allegations. The chancellor had flown to Washington with no members of the German press on board, no formal dinner scheduled, and the two world leaders were not slated to conduct a press conference, as routinely happens at such high-profile meetings. Instead, it was later reported that Biden and Scholz had an 80-minute meeting, with no aides present for much of the time. There have been no statements or written understandings made public since then by either government, but I was told by someone with access to diplomatic intelligence that there was a discussion of the pipeline exposé and, as a result, certain elements in the Central Intelligence Agency were asked to prepare a cover story in collaboration with German intelligence that would provide the American and German press with an alternative version for the destruction of Nord Stream 2. In the words of the intelligence community, the agency was “to pulse the system” in an effort to discount the claim that Biden had ordered the pipelines’ destruction.

    • NATIONAL POST – Kremlin summons Canadian diplomat over Joly comment on Russian ‘regime change’

      Russia’s foreign ministry warned on Tuesday that Joly’s comments ‘will have the most serious consequences for bilateral relations’

      OTTAWA — Russia has summoned Canada’s top envoy to Moscow over Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly’s musings about “regime change.”

      Moscow says it summoned Canadian charge d’affaires Brian Ebel on Monday to tell him that Joly’s comments were unacceptable.

      Russia’s foreign ministry warned in a Tuesday statement in English that her comments “will have the most serious consequences for bilateral relations.”

      Joly said earlier this month that western sanctions in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine are having an impact, because the world is seeing effects “on society and how much we’re seeing potential regime change in Russia.”

      Speaking at a March 10 event, Joly added that Canada needs to isolate Russia “economically, politically and diplomatically.”

      When The Canadian Press asked Joly if Ottawa is now seeking regime change in Moscow, she responded that Canada is focused on punishing the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin, instead of the Russians who live under his reign.

      Russia argues that this amounts to meddling in domestic affairs, counter to the 1961 Vienna Convention that governs diplomatic relations.

      “The Canadian diplomat’s attention was drawn to the fact that remarks of this sort were inadmissible and at variance with Canada’s obligations,” the Russian foreign ministry wrote.

      “It was underscored that Russia reserved the right to take relevant countermeasures depending on the further steps of the ruling Trudeau regime, in the context of its declared course of confrontation with Russia.”

      Joly’s office suggested she will not retract her comments.

      “President Putin has invaded his neighbour and is responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity,” wrote spokesman Adrien Blanchard in an email statement.

      “As Minister Joly has said, we are focused on isolating the Russian regime, emptying its war chest and holding it to account for its crimes.”

      Bilateral trade has collapsed between the two countries, who have summoned each other’s envoys over issues such as Ottawa’s provision of security for Russian diplomats and Russia’s embassy posting social-media messages that upset the LGBTQ community.

      Moscow summoned Ebel in his capacity as Canada’s charge d’affaires, which is someone who stands in for an ambassador. Global Affairs Canada would not confirm if ambassador Alison LeClaire has ended her term or was on leave this week.

      Russia previously summoned LeClaire last December, in protest of Ottawa doing the same five times last year to Russian ambassador Oleg Stepanov.

      Summoning an ambassador is a normally a rare occurrence that countries undertake to formally object to either the policies of the foreign country or the conduct of their diplomatic mission.

    • WaPo- Europe should detain Putin, give him to ICC if he visits, Blinken says

      European countries should detain Vladimir Putin and turn him over to the International Criminal Court if the Russian president visits their countries, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told lawmakers Wednesday.

      Blinken’s remarks, made in response to a line of questioning, follow the court’s decision last week to issue an arrest warrant for Putin that accuses him of being personally responsible for the abductions of children from Ukraine — the first time the global court has issued a warrant against a leader of one of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.

      “Would you encourage our European allies to turn him over?” Republican Sen. Lindsey O. Graham of South Carolina asked Blinken during a budget hearing.

      “Anyone who is a party to the court and has obligations should fulfill their obligations,” Blinken said.

      Putin is unlikely to visit hostile European countries any time soon, especially in light of the ICC arrest warrant — a decision that received both praise for standing up against Putin and criticism for potentially closing diplomatic pathways for reaching a political resolution that ends the fighting.

      During the hearing, Blinken defended the Biden administration’s $6.8 trillion budget proposal to Congress, saying it was necessary in order for the United States to confront the “acute threat” posed by Russia and the “long-term challenge” from China while also addressing climate change and migration.

      President Biden defied Republican demands to reduce the size of government earlier this month with a budget that proposes increasing spending on the Pentagon and social programs while raising taxes on higher earners and corporations.

      “The post-Cold War world is over, and there is an intense competition underway to determine what comes next,” Blinken told a Senate panel on appropriations. “This budget will help us advance that vision, and deliver on the issues that matter most to the American people.”

      Graham, in remarks to open the hearing, said he wanted to increase funding specifically “to counter China throughout the world, particularly in their backyard.”

      The $63.1 billion request for the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development would increase funding for the Asia Pacific region by 18 percent, said Blinken, helping the United States “outcompete” China.

      The pitch appeared designed to counter some criticisms from Republicans that the billions of dollars the United States is spending on military and economic assistance to Ukraine may come at a cost to the long term strategic goal of countering China.

      “They want us to believe we can fight an endless proxy war in Ukraine and somehow, this won’t impact our ability to deter China from invading Taiwan,” Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri said in a speech last month. “They want us to believe that our military might is infinite, that American power faces no real constraints.”

      Blinken argued that the State Department budget would put Washington in a place to address all of its key challenges, which he categorized into two “sets.”

      “The first set is posed by our strategic competitors — the immediate, acute threat posed by Russia’s autocracy and aggression, most destructively through its brutal war against Ukraine … and the long-term challenge from the People’s Republic of China,” said Blinken.

      “The second set is posed by shared global tests, including the climate crisis, migration, food and energy insecurity, and pandemics, all of which directly impact the lives and livelihoods of Americans and all peoples around the world,” he added.

  2. BREAKING: Soros-Funded DA Alvin Bragg CAUGHT HIDING Nearly 600 Pages of Exculpatory Evidence from NY Grand Jury in Trump Case (VIDEO)
    By Jim Hoft Mar. 21, 2023 9:46 pm1079 Comments

    Attorney Robert Costello, the former legal adviser to Michael Cohen, spoke to Tucker Carlson on Monday night after he testified to the Manhattan Grand Jury investigating President Donald Trump.

    Costello told the FOX News audience that he testified for two hours in front of Alvin Bragg’s Manhattan Grand Jury.

    Robert Costello told Tucker Carlson, “I spoke to the jury for two hours… It was clear to me the Manhattan Grand Jury did not want to get to the truth.”

    And it now is being reported that New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg was HIDING exculpatory evidence from the Grand Jury!

    According to FOX News legal mind Gregg Jarrett, Soros-funded DA Alvin Bragg HID nearly 600 pages of exculpatory evidence to the New York Grand Jury investigating President Trump.

    Gregg Jarrett: I mentioned it yesterday, I think, when Bob Costello got into that Grand Jury room and told them, “Wait a minute. You don’t have the hundreds of pages I handed over to Alvin Bragg over here? You only have six cherry-picked documents?” You know, hiding from grand juries exculpatory information is reprehensible and unconscionable. And the conduct of Alvin Bragg and his henchman Mark Pomeranz, who specifically says in his book, “We’re targeting zombies because we don’t like his beliefs,” those guys should face disbarment proceedings.

    Once again the REAL crooks reveal themselves.

    And Jarrett is right. If there was a real justice system in the country, they should be disbarred.

  4. Tucker Carlson Unknowingly Shows the Death of Trump Supporter Rosanne Boyland on January 6th on the US Capitol Steps (VIDEO)
    By Jim Hoft Mar. 22, 2023 7:30 am57 Comments

    Its been almost two years now since we were first contacted by January 6 police brutality victim Philip Anderson.

    Phillip Anderson was on the ground on the steps of the US Capitol with Rosanne Boyland when she died that day. Phillip was knocked unconscious at the time when he was gassed and pushed into a pile by Capitol Police. He was later rescued and revived by Jake Lang, a current January 6 political prisoner.

    Rosanne Boyland was not as “lucky.” She was killed that day by Capitol Police. Cara Castronuova at The Gateway Pundit later posted video of Capitol Police Officer Lila Morris beating Rosanne dozens of times as she lay unconscious on the steps of the US Capitol.

    San Francisco, California- Groups of teenagers engaged in brawls on multiple occasions inside a San Francisco mall recently. These brawls have involved students kicking, punching, and stomping each other as well as innocent onlookers.

    The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) told Fox news that three brawls took place at the Stonestown Mall, a popular teenage hangout between March 15-17.

    One particularly disturbing incident happened at 4 pm inside a Target store last Friday. Video shows teenagers jumping on a man and then slamming him to the ground.

    As reported by CBS Bay Area, another shocking incident on Friday occurred when youths repeatedly kicked and stomped an individual on the ground in the Stonestown Galleria food court. Bystanders did absolutely nothing.

  6. Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders Signs Arkansas Bill Restricting Transgender Students Bathroom Use in Public Schools
    By Margaret Flavin Mar. 22, 2023 9:00 am17 Comments

    On Tuesday, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed legislation prohibiting transgender people at public schools from using the restroom that uses their gender identity.

    The legislation, which goes into effect on April 7th, applies to locker rooms and multi-person restrooms for students in kindergarten through 12th grade in public and charter schools in the state.

    Governor Huckabee’s spokesperson Alexa Henning told The Associated Press, “The Governor has said she will sign laws that focus on protecting and educating our kids, not indoctrinating them and believes our schools are no place for the radical left’s woke agenda. Arkansas isn’t going to rewrite the rules of biology just to please a handful of far-left advocates.”

    The new law also requires schools to provide reasonable accommodations for transgender students, such as single-person restrooms, though opponents have claimed the measure doesn’t provide schools with funding to do so.

    Superintendents, school administrators and teachers who violate the prohibition could be fined at least $1,000 from a state panel. Parents will also be able to file private lawsuits if the new law isn’t enforced.

    “Each child in our schools has a right to privacy and to feel safe and to feel comfortable in the bathroom they need to go to,” Republican Rep. Mary Bentley, who sponsored the bill, told lawmakers earlier this year.

    Sanders has made much needed education reform a priority for the state.

  8. europravda – Macronescu to give TV interview in bid to calm unrest over pension reform

    Macronescu has been keeping a low profile for the last few days but has told allies that he has no intention of dissolving parliament, reshuffling the government or calling a referendum on pension reform to calm tensions. He will also stand by his beleaguered prime minister.

    • NYT – Macronescu Denounces Violent Protests, Warning Against ‘Excesses’

      President Emmanuel Macron of France, in his first remarks since pushing through a rise in the retirement age, was firm and unapologetic.

      PARIS — President Emmanuel Macron, addressing the French people for the first time since the tumultuous passing of a law that raises the retirement age to 64 from 62, denounced violent protests and said he would not tolerate their threat to the republic.

      Speaking in a televised interview with two journalists, Mr. Macron said he respected “the labor unions who defend their point of view.” But, alluding to the threat to democracy constituted by the assault of a mob on the United States Congress in 2021, he made clear that he would “not tolerate any violent excesses.”

      His tone was firm and unapologetic on the eve of another day of mass protests and strikes called for Thursday. Asked if he had made any mistakes, Mr. Macron said, “Having failed to convince people.”

      That was his only concession on his methods, which have included a last-minute recourse to a legal tool, article 49.3 of the Constitution, in order to avoid a full parliamentary vote on a change that has split the country. This course was perceived by his critics as antidemocratic.

      It would be easy, Mr. Macron said, to shirk his responsibilities and avoid an overhaul essential to the country’s financial stability and ability to invest in its future. “But if I have to shoulder unpopularity today, I shoulder it,” he said.

      Labor unions and opposition politicians reacted angrily to Mr. Macron’s defense of his approach. “He is in absolute denial,” Olivier Faure, the leader of the Socialist Party, said. “I fear that Macron has emptied more explosives on a fire that was already well lit.”

      But Mr. Macron was adamant. “Do you think it gives me pleasure to push through this reform?” he asked. “No.”

      But, he continued, “this reform is not a luxury, not a pleasure, it’s a necessity for the country.”

      He used a chart showing retirement ages of 65 or over in several other countries to illustrate his point, reverting to a professorial mode that has contributed to a persistent view of him as an aloof president.

      “We have a president who is too sure of himself,” said Philippe Martinez, the leader of the Confédération Générale du Travail, or C.G.T., France’s second-largest union, after Mr. Macron spoke. “This is serious.”

      The protests against retirement at 64, which brings France more in line with its European neighbors, have been generally peaceful over the past two months even as anger has mounted. But on Wednesday, protesters in Marseille set fire to wooden pallets and tires to block a highway; in Brest, dockers blocked the port; and in Paris, demonstrators from the C.G.T. union occupied a McDonald’s on the Champs-Élysées.

      Over the past week, violent nighttime clashes between police and protesters have erupted in several cities, including Paris, where there have been repeated chases between riot police firing tear gas and small groups of protesters lighting trash fires.

      “When groups, as they have this week, use violence without any rules because they are not happy with something, then that is no longer democracy,” Mr. Macron said. At a time when “the United States lived what it lived at the Capitol,” he continued, “we respect, listen, we try to advance for the sake of the country, but we cannot accept insurrectionists or factions.”

      Under the French system, today’s workers pay the pensions of a growing number of retirees, who now live longer. Over the medium term, the financial viability of this arrangement appears doubtful, even if Mr. Macron has not convinced French people of the urgency of the changes.

      Mr. Macron, 45, noted that there were 10 million pensioners when he started working, there are 17 million now and soon there will be 20 million. Failure to raise the retirement age, he said, would be tantamount to “making our children pay because today you refuse to act with clarity and courage.”

      His stance on Wednesday — that his course was the only responsible one for the country and generations to come — was a return to arguments Mr. Macron made last year. In recent months, the official narrative on the pension system has at different times been about justice, parlous public finances, even a left-wing program. The result has been confusion and growing resistance.

      Mr. Macron had made clear his resolve on Tuesday evening when he told members of his centrist Renaissance party and its allies, “If you believe in this democratic and Republican order, a riot cannot win the day over the representatives of the people.”

      Addressing a gathering at the presidential Élysée Palace, he continued, “The mob, whatever it is, has no legitimacy before the sovereign people expressing themselves through its elected representatives.”

      In effect, at a time when the nature of democracy is being vigorously debated in France’s Fifth Republic, with its Constitution that gives the president enormous power, Mr. Macron argued that his decision to ram through the pension overhaul without a full parliamentary vote on the bill itself was more democratic than the “democracy” of widespread street protest.

      His method was legal, and therefore, he said, he had the prerogative to use it; end of story, as Mr. Macron argued the case.

      Commenting on Mr. Macron’s remarks Tuesday, François Bayrou, one of Mr. Macron’s key centrist allies, told Franceinfo on Wednesday: “I wouldn’t have put it that way. Demonstrations have their legitimacy, but it is not a greater legitimacy than democratic legitimacy.”

      Mr. Macron has said very little about his pension overhaul over the past two months, leaving his prime minister, Élisabeth Borne, and his ministers on the front lines to defend it from the opposition and to convince a skeptical public. This approach appears to have failed, as the president himself acknowledged without offering concessions or any possible compromise.

      Speaking of Ms. Borne, who has faced intense criticism in the Parliament, Mr. Macron said, “She has my confidence to lead this government.” He added that, “even in this moment of political incandescence, there is no alternative majority.”

      This was an apparent allusion to the fact that while the extreme-right National Rally party of Marine Le Pen and the far left led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon hold considerable power in the National Assembly, or lower house, they agree on very little except the need to prevent the pension overhaul.

      While Mr. Macron stood firm on his pension changes, he outlined other measures to placate anger in the country, which he said was due partly to a “feeling of injustice.”

      “This feeling of injustice is saying, in a way, ‘When it comes down to it, we are always the ones who are working, who are asked to make an effort,’” Mr. Macron said of the many protesters who will have to work longer because of the change in the retirement age.

      The government, he said, would look into ways to ensure that when large companies collect “exceptional profits,” those profits are also shared with employees instead of being used only to buy back stock.

      Overall, however, Mr. Macron’s intransigent position in his remarks suggested that the dispute over the pension overhaul could last a long time. He had no response when asked when exactly French people could expect a return to calm.

      The president has taken on something much bigger than the retirement age: the nation’s deep attachment to social solidarity and the pervasive view that a long sentence of work is offset only by the liberating rewards of a retiree’s life.

      At a time of war in Europe, rising inflation, increasing energy costs, broad anxiety about economic prospects and growing distrust of the democratic institutions of the Fifth Republic, Mr. Macron’s determination to fight this battle now has crystallized resentments and brought into frontal conflict two views of French society and identity.

    BIDEN’S AMERICA: 2-Yr-Old Abandonded Boy Found By TX State Police On Border By Himself With One Toy and Disturbing Note Inside His Backpack [VIDEO]
    By Patty McMurray Mar. 22, 2023 9:30 am141 Comments

    100 Percent Fed Up reports- Does anyone remember the outrage from the Left when they accused President Trump of placing children who illegally crossed our southern border in cages? Well, the cages turned out to be holding pens for children that were erected when Barack Obama began to facilitate the open-border program from Mexico to America during his first term.

    “Oh, the inhumanity!” They screamed in their attempt to blame President Trump, who, in reality, committed the most HUMANE act in decades when he closed down our borders and began to build a wall that would prevent millions of illegal aliens from being human trafficked by drug cartels and coyotes across our southern border.

    Since day one of his illegitimate presidency, Joe Biden and his radical regime have made no secret of their desire to open our borders to any foreigner who dares to cross. They have done absolutely nothing about the invasion on our southern border, placing every American in harm’s way with convicted felons, members of dangerous gangs and drug cartels, and human traffickers, including sex traffickers coming across our border every day.

    Democrats have ignored the horrific stories of abused and abandoned children who are being used as pawns for these evil people to freely cross our border and then secure free transportation to literally anywhere in the US they choose to stay, simply because they have a child in tow.

    Yesterday, an abandoned two-year-old boy was found by himself on the Texas Southern border by a Texas State Police officer.

    In what can only be described as a heartbreaking scene, the little boy was found wearing jeans and a lightweight jacket and wearing nothing more than a backpack with a toy, hat, and note inside. Around the boy’s neck is a makeshift ID that tells his age and country of origin. As he opens the note, the TX State Trooper notices a toy and hat in his backpack and says, “Basically, instructions on where he wants to go. He’s got his cell phone— address—looks like Louisiana; that’s where he’s supposed to go.” He continues to explain the note he found in the little boy’s backpack, “Basically, directions on where he wants to go.”

    The TX State Police officer appears to be sending information about the boy back to a home base on his radio when a voice can be heard saying, “We found migrants giving themselves up.”A pregnant woman who had just crossed the border with a group of CHINESE illegal aliens who were brought over by coyotes found the young boy “with a card around his neck,” the police officer explains. Another person in the background, who is possibly another TX State Police officer, can be heard saying the boy is “2 years old man, and by himself,” and it appears the boy is from “Honduras,” as well.

    What kind of monster sends a toddler across the border with nothing more than the clothes on his back, a hat, and a note about which state he should be sent to if/when he is found?

    Jorge Ventura Media who was with the TX State Police officers when they encountered the 2-year-old boy shared the video on Twitter.

    Here is a recent video showing a group of five Chinese citizens who have illegally crossed our border (likely with the help of coyotes) and are making their way to their final destination when they are confronted.

    In September 2021, we reported that two very young children (2 years old and 3-months old) happened to be spotted by
    patrol agents along the Rio Grande. If they hadn’t been seen and rescued, they would not have survived. The two children were from Honduras.

    If Joe Biden and the Democrats who’ve endorsed his plan to keep our borders open to millions of foreigners were arrested and charged for making it possible for abandoned children who are left to fend for themselves in a desert where they are exposed to dangerous criminals, extreme temperatures, lack of food and water and even wild animals, they would probably think twice about their actions.

    For decades, Democrats have proven how much they care for those who are unable to fend for themselves. From their push for abortion up until the moment of birth (or even after birth) to the stealing of our children’s innocence with the radical sex and race-hate education they are subjecting our young children to in the classrooms, to creating a pathway to international child trafficking in America, Democrats have declared war on the innocent—not just in America, but the innocent from around the world.

    100 Percent Fed Up reports – Newly acquired public records reveal that there’s much more to the exact relationship between the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) than meets the eye

    Emails obtained by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (and archived here) show Rhode Island Elections Director Rob Rock “working with CEIR” “to facilitate the secure transfer of . . . ERIC member data” to this private, third-party organization run by ERIC founder and ex-board member David Becker.

    On January 12, 2021, Rock sought clarification from ERIC executive director Shane Hamlin on sharing data with CEIR in an email titled “EBU Follow-Up Data Request.” (“EBU” refers to eligible-but-unregistered individuals or residents who lawfully may but have not yet registered to vote.)

    Florida’s Lee County Republican Executive Committee (LCREC)voted last night to pass a motion to get rid of the voting machines in the county and replace the entire process with paper ballots.

    This was a monumental vote coming out of Lee County because this same group has been instrumental in pushing for the removal of the ERIC voter roll system in the state of Florida which just happened.

    Lee County REC passed the Resolution for Election Vote Accuracy last night with more than 90% approval

    Resolved, the LCREC calls upon the FL Legislature, the SOS and the Governor of FL to abide by FL Law and the Will of the Public to use their authority to prohibit the use of Electronic Voting Machines in the State of Florida. We urge instead the use of paper ballots and manual counting systems to comply with the Voter’s Bill of Rights as provided for in FL Statue 101.031(2) to ensure his or her vote is accurately counted.

    The CDC has indicated on their website for months that 92% of adults have taken at least on shot of a COVID-19 vaccine. Yet a prior surveys Zogby and Rasmussen indicated that fraction may only be two thirds.

    Now a recent, independent report from Northeastern University has found that the proportion of unvaccinated is not 8% but more like 25%. This agrees separately with a Kaiser Family Foundation report. Apparently the CDC vaccination administration system is not accurately identifying each person by a unique identifier and linking each injection to that code.

    President Trump on Tuesday released a 10-point plan to gut Deep State corruption from every level of the U.S. government in a new Agenda47 policy pitch.

    In an official campaign email, Trump vowed to “fire rogue bureaucrats and career politicians” and “target government corruption” that has brought harm and oppression to American citizens.

    “Here’s my plan to dismantle the deep state and reclaim our democracy from Washington corruption once and for all, and corruption it is,” he explained in the video.

    “First,” Trump vowed, “I will immediately re-issue my 2020 Executive Order restoring the President’s authority to remove rogue bureaucrats. And I will wield that power very aggressively.”

    “Second,” he added, “we will clean out all of the corrupt actors in our National Security and Intelligence apparatus, and there are plenty of them. The departments and agencies that have been weaponized will be completely overhauled so that faceless bureaucrats will never again be able to target and persecute conservatives, Christians, or the left’s political enemies, which they’re doing now at a level that nobody can believe even possible.”

    Trump’s campaign reiterated the corruption of federal agencies like the FBI, the DHS, and the FISA Court processes that were “corrupted by the Obama-Biden administration.”

    “The Biden administration has weaponized the FBI and DOJ to target conservatives, Christians, and their political enemies,” the Trump campaign statement read.

    In early March, Trump promised Americans that he would terminate the Deep State in a speech delivered in Washington, D.C., at the 2023 CPAC.

    “If you put me back in the White House, their reign is over – and they know it,” he pledged. “…I will totally obliterate the Deep State. I will fire the unelected bureaucrats and shadow forces who have weaponized our justice system like it has never been weaponized before.”

    His 10-point plan doubles down on his dedication to draining the Washington swamp:

    1. “On Day One, re-issue 2020 executive order restoring the president’s authority to fire rogue bureaucrats.

    2. Overhaul federal departments and agencies, firing all of the corrupt actors in our National Security and Intelligence apparatus.

    3. Fundamentally reform the FISA courts, ensuring that corruption is rooted out.

    4. Establish a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to declassify and publish all documents on Deep State spying, censorship, and abuses of power.

    5. Launch a major crackdown on government leakers who collude with the media to create false narratives, pressing criminal charges when appropriate.

    6. Make every Inspector General’s Office independent from the departments they oversee, so that they do not become protectors of the deep state.

    7. Establish an independent auditing system to continually monitor our intelligence agencies to ensure that they are not spying on our citizens or running disinformation campaigns against the American people.

    8. Continue Trump administration effort to move parts of the federal bureaucracy outside of the Washington Swamp, just like President Trump moved the Bureau of Land Management to Colorado. Up to 100,000 government positions could be moved out of Washington.

    9. Ban federal bureaucrats from taking jobs at the companies they deal with and regulate, such as Big Pharma.

    10. Push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on members of Congress.”

  15. Rep. Matt Gaetz Introduces “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act” in Response “Cancer at the Washington Field Office”
    By Margaret Flavin Mar. 22, 2023 10:50 am100 Comments

    Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has introduced the “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act” in response to the malfeasance of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The legislation is co-sponsored by 5 additional members of Congress.

    The legislation calls for the House to halt all spending allocated towards the FBI’s new headquarters outside of D.C.

    Rep. Gaetz’s offices shares:

    In response to new information surfacing about malfeasance at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Washington Field Office, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01), member of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, today will introduce the “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act.” The legislation calls for the U.S. House of Representatives to halt all spending allocated towards the FBI’s new, suburban headquarters outside the District of Columbia. In December 2022’s Omnibus Bill and under former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s direction, the House of Representatives voted to allocate $375 million for a new FBI headquarters in the Greater Washington, D.C., area.

    The “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act” will be co-sponsored by Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Rep. Dan Bishop (NC-08), Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-09), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14), and Rep. Harriet Hageman (WY-At Large).

    “There are still good men and women in the FBI whose task and purpose are to defend our country, but the FBI’s weaponized Washington Field Office is rotten to the core.

    Through our investigations in the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, we have uncovered extremely disturbing testimony from FBI whistleblowers that the Washington Field Office is targeting Americans who oppose their corrupt political agenda.

    The cancer at the Washington Field Office has metastasized so large that the entire body is in critical condition. Gifting the FBI a new headquarters larger than the Pentagon would condone, reinforce, and enable their nefarious behavior to levels we have never seen before,” said Congressman Gaetz.

    BREAKING LEAK: Judge Says Special Counsel Has Evidence Trump ‘Committed Criminal Violations’ in Mar-a-Lago Classified Documents Case
    By Cristina Laila Mar. 22, 2023 11:10 am787 Comments

    Another day, another illegal leak.

    Judge Beryl Howell last Friday wrote that special counsel Jack Smith’s prosecutors have evidence Trump ‘committed criminal violations’ in the classified documents case, according to a leak to ABC News.

    Trump lawfully stored presidential records at his Mar-a-Lago residence but the Deep State is going after him anyway.

    Prosecutors in the special counsel’s office have presented compelling preliminary evidence that former President Donald Trump knowingly and deliberately misled his own attorneys about his retention of classified materials after leaving office, a top federal judge wrote Friday in a sealed filing, according to sources who described its contents to ABC News.” the outlet reported.

    “U.S. Judge Beryl Howell, who on Friday stepped down as the D.C. district court’s chief judge, wrote last week that prosecutors in special counsel Jack Smith’s office had made a “prima facie showing that the former president had committed criminal violations,” according to the sources, and that attorney-client privileges invoked by two of his lawyers could therefore be pierced.” ABC reported.

    Recall, Judge Beryl Howell flipped Trump’s own lawyer Eric Corcoran into a witness when she obliterated Trump’s attorney client privilege in a ruling on Friday.

    FOX News is reporting that the cancellation of the grand jury may be due to the corrupt DA’s office.

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office has “canceled” the grand jury meeting that was scheduled to take place Wednesday as part of the investigation into former President Trump, amid speculation of a possible indictment, two sources familiar told Fox News.

    The grand jury was slated to meet Wednesday and was expected to hear from at least one additional witness, but Fox News has learned that Bragg’s office “canceled” the proceedings.

    The grand jury was notified Wednesday morning, and was placed “on standby” for Thursday, a source told Fox News.

    Two sources familiar told Fox News Digital on Wednesday that the grand jury was canceled amid “major dissension” within the district attorney’s office. One source claimed the district attorney is having trouble convincing the grand jury on potential charges due to the “weakness” of the case.
    Despite rumors of a potential imminent indictment, sources familiar told Fox News Digital that Trump has not been formally notified about whether Bragg actually plans to bring charges against him.

    Sources told Fox News, though, that there remains a real chance that Bragg does not choose to indict the former president.

    Bragg, when he took over as district attorney in January 2022, stopped pursuing charges against Trump and suspended the investigation “indefinitely,” according to one of the top prosecutors who resigned from the office in protest.

    Prosecutors Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne, who had been leading the investigation under former DA Cyrus Vance, submitted their resignations after Bragg began raising doubts about pursuing a case against Trump.

    The possible charges stem from the $130,000 hush-money payment that then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

    Federal prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York opted out of charging Trump related to the Stormy Daniels payment in 2019, even as Cohen implicated him as part of his plea deal. The Federal Election Commission also tossed its investigation into the matter in 2021.

    On Monday, Cohen’s former attorney went before the grand jury and disclosed information on the case that apparently was the opposite of what Cohen was claiming, and Cohen is a convicted perjured. However, many believe that the case is in New York where Bragg can get what he needs before a corrupt and biased jury.

    A possible Wednesday Trump indictment reported by the Daily Mail on Tuesday sent the media into a frenzy.

    Trump lawfully stored presidential records at his Mar-a-Lago residence but the Deep State is going after him anyway.

    Prosecutors in the special counsel’s office have presented compelling preliminary evidence that former President Donald Trump knowingly and deliberately misled his own attorneys about his retention of classified materials after leaving office, a top federal judge wrote Friday in a sealed filing, according to sources who described its contents to ABC News.” the outlet reported.

    “U.S. Judge Beryl Howell, who on Friday stepped down as the D.C. district court’s chief judge, wrote last week that prosecutors in special counsel Jack Smith’s office had made a “prima facie showing that the former president had committed criminal violations,” according to the sources, and that attorney-client privileges invoked by two of his lawyers could therefore be pierced.” ABC reported.

    Trump’s campaign responded to the leak: “Shame on Fake News ABC for broadcasting ILLEGALLY LEAKED false allegations from a Never Trump, now former chief judge, against the Trump legal team. This disinformation on par with their breathless Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine and “no-collusion” Mueller speculation, all of

  21. FAKE “Trump Supporters” at Manhattan Protest Are Identified As an Actor And an Anarchist (Possible Antifa Member) By Independent Journalist [VIDEO]
    By Patty McMurray Mar. 22, 2023 4:15 pm

    100 Percent Fed Up reports- In a post on his “Truth” social media platform over the weekend, President Trump asked his supporters to “Protest!” in advance of his alleged arrest by the radical Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. Many Trump supporters believed it was a mistake for President Trump to call on his supporters to protest, as they feared many would be set up by fake Trump supporters who were really undercover FBI agents or informants or even members of Antifa.

    The radical Anarchist group Antifa has been known to create violence at protests, making it appear as though the group who organized the event were actually responsible

    In Manhattan, during yesterday’s protest in support of President Trump, independent reporter Rebecca Brannon did an incredible job of uncovering the fake “Trump supporters” who were supposed to be there to protest Trump’s impending arrest by the radical Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. Bragg had barricades placed around the Manhattan courthouse in NYC in an attempt to give the false impression that they needed to protect themselves from Trump supporters.

    If Trump supporters haven’t become violent yet, after more than six years of being taunted, mocked, and discriminated against by the dishonest mainstream media and threatened by Democrat leaders, it’s fairly unlikely they’re going to suddenly become violent.

    One of the protesters, who really stood out in the crowd, was dressed as the infamous “Q-Anon Shaman,” who was recently sentenced to four years of prison for his role in walking around the White House under close supervision of the Capitol Police.

  22. (Richard: The Russians have sealed the pocket trapping 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers in the killing ground. The Russian Generals are fighting a smart war, conserving the Russian forces while killing a lot of the Ukrainian forces.

    Yucki keeps saying the Russian people are causality shy, this attitude forces start tactics. The Generals have to kill the enemy while suffering the smallest number of casualties they can. The Western Media, Politicians and some of our Generals keep expecting the human wave attacks of WWII. The human wave tactics were caused by two leaders doing stupid things. Stalin killed off his competent Generals because they were a threat to his power. Hitler gave the no retreat order because he didn’t know tactics.

    Putin is seeking to bring all ethnic Russians back under Russian protection/control. The Western leftist Leaders seek to create a new one world government that is a combination of Marxism and corporatism. These conflicting desires are forcing us into WWIII. The thing neither side is ready for is the depth of the coming economic collapse. It will destroy the economies of all of the nations on earth.

    This collapse will start the resource wars that many have been predicting. The anti science and anti freedom movements of the left are going to be crushed by the people fighting to feed their families.)

    Bakhmut Falls, Artyomovsk Rises – Strategic and Symbolic City in Eastern Ukraine Fully Encircled by Russian Forces – Kiev Leaves 10k Soldiers Trapped in the ‘Cauldron’
    By Paul Serran Mar. 22, 2023 4:30 pm206 Comments

    The Battle for Bakhmut/Artyomovsk has been widely considered one of the toughest since the Second World War. So bloody has it been, that terms like ‘meat grinder’ and ‘vortex’ are applied to it daily.

    Artyomovsk (Russian name) is an important city in the Donbas, the Russian-speaking region comprised of the Luhansk and Donetsk Oblasts (states). The defense of the ethnic Russians in this region was one of the primary objectives of Putin in his Special Military Operation, so the capture of this key regional logistics and transport hub is crucial to the Russian plans of liberating the areas of Donetsk Oblast still under Kiev’s control.

    While US and UK officials have, as of late, tried to downplay the strategic importance of Bakhmut (Ukrainian name), deeming it to be merely ‘symbolic’, Ukrainian president Zelensky stated that a loss in Bakhmut would mean an open road for Russian forced to attack other important cities in Eastern Ukraine.

    As for the symbolic value of Bakhmut, Zelensky called it the ‘the fortress of our morale’, so it’s understandable that he and his Generals may have chosen to defend it to the end, rather than retreat their overwhelmed troops while they still could. But ‘the end’ appears to be nearing.

    Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) is a straight-shooting national treasure complete with an incisive wit and dry sense of humor. He has displayed these talents throughout his time in the Senate whether by stumping unqualified Biden nominees and or in interviews with reporters.

    On Wednesday, he put his considerable talents to great use by bamboozling a clueless Biden District Court nominee named S. Kato Crews during Crews’s Wednesday confirmation hearing.

    Crews currently serves a Magistrate Judge in Colorado. He has been in the legal arena for more than two decades.

  24. Smoking Gun? 2018 Letter From Michael Cohen’s Lawyer on Stormy Payment States Cohen ‘Used His Own Personal funds,’ and That Trump Did Not Reimburse Him
    By Cristina Laila Mar. 22, 2023 6:23 pm92 Comments

    The Daily Mail obtained a 2018 letter from Michael Cohen’s lawyer stating Cohen used his own personal money to pay Porn Star Stormy Daniels in 2016.

    The letter also states that the Trump Org nor the Trump campaign reimbursed Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.

    This directly contradicts Cohen’s testimony – not surprising given Michael Cohen is a convicted perjurer.

    Trump has been accused of paying Daniels ‘hush payments’ through his then-attorney Michael Cohen in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer.

    According to ABC News, Judge Howell ordered Corcoran to “hand over a number of records tied to what Howell described as Trump’s alleged “criminal scheme,” echoing prosecutors.”

  27. Russia Ramps Up for Nuclear Conflict: Says British Shipments of Depleted Uranium Shells to Ukraine Brings “The Nuclear Apocalypse Closer”
    By Jim Hoft Mar. 22, 2023 6:56 pm20 Comments

    Great Britain announced Wednesday that it was supplying Ukraine with armor-piercing shells made with depleted uranium.

    Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says every day this happens “it brings the nuclear apocalypse closer.”

    The New York Times defended British military deliveries to Ukraine.

    Britain on Wednesday defended its decision to supply Ukraine with weapons made with depleted uranium, a day after President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia falsely claimed the material had a “nuclear component.”

    Britain’s government has confirmed that it would provide Ukraine with armor-piercing shells that contain depleted uranium, alongside its Challenger 2 tanks, which use them. Depleted uranium is a standard component in conventional anti-armor weapons that NATO countries have used for decades, and Britain said in a statement that the ammunition it was providing had nothing to do with nuclear weapons.

    The density of depleted uranium makes it an effective material for piercing heavy armor on the battlefield, and is used by many militaries. Among them are Russia’s, which upgraded its main battle tank to add the ability to fire depleted uranium shells, the Tass state news agency reported in 2018

  28. SHOCKING REPORT: DOJ Embedded an FBI Informant Inside the DEFENSE TEAM of Non-Violent Jan 6 Prisoner and Former US Marine Zachary Rehl
    By Patty McMurray Mar. 22, 2023 7:13 pm68 Comments

    The government’s fabricated case against the Proud Boys was suspended a week ago after the defense attorneys were accidentally given information from DOJ lawyers that shows the US government was deleting evidence, hiding documents and spying on the prisoners while they were speaking with their attorneys.

    Of course, all of those actions are illegal.

    But the latest development today tops all of the previous lawless actions of the FBI and Department of Justice.

    100 Percent Fed Up reports – The amazing investigative reporter Julie Kelly of American Greatness, who has done more to expose the corruption behind the January 6th convictions and treatment of January 6th prisoners than almost anyone, has just dropped a massive bombshell that should shake every American to their core

    According to Kelly, the DOJ has embedded an FBI agent in the defense team of the non-violent Jan. 6th prisoner, former US Marine Zachary Rehl. Rehl has been imprisoned since January 6. His real crime is that he’s a member of the “Proud Boys.”

    In her first of a series of four tweets, Kelly reported that a new motion has just been filed by the defense in the Proud Boys trial accusing the DOJ of using an FBI informant to spy on and infiltrate the defense team of Zachary Rehl.

    Kelly wrote: “Just when you think DOJ can’t get any dirtier–“

    Kelly shared an UPDATE to her first tweet, saying: Judge Kelly just ordered DC US Attorney Matthew Graves’ office to respond to this motion by 9 am tomorrow.

    In her second tweet, the true investigative reporter wrote that Judge Kelly was asked by the January 6th defendant’s attorney to reconsider the nonviolent Rehl’s incarceration “since he has a daughter he’s never held since she was born after he was arrested.” Instead of honoring his lawyer’s request, Judge Kelly denied his bail for two years.

    The allegations about the existence of yet one more previously undisclosed CHS after various other alleged full and complete disclosures of all the CHS’s involved in the case demonstrate that there are reasons to doubt the veracity of the government’s explanation and justification for withholding information about the CHSs who have been involved in the case. Moreover, the government disclosed this information for the first time on the day before the witness was scheduled to appear.

    The allegations about the existence of yet one more previously undisclosed CHS after various other alleged full and complete disclosures of all the CHS’s involved in the case demonstrate that there are reasons to doubt the veracity of the government’s explanation and justification for withholding information about the CHSs who have been involved in the case. Moreover, the government disclosed this information for the first time on the day before the witness was scheduled to appear.

    Rehl’s lawyer, Carmen Hernandez, asked for “an immediate emergency hearing and adjournment of the Court proceedings until the issues have been considered and resolved.”

    Accordingly, Mr. Rehl and the other defendants in the instant case respectfully request that the Court compel the government to disclose all information, recordings, and reports set forth above so that the defense team (and the Court) can have a complete picture of what happened, and why. The defendants request an immediate emergency hearing and adjournment of the Court proceedings until these issues have been considered and resolved.

    In her third tweet, Kelly revealed that DC US Attorney Matthew Graves’ office “continues to mislead court and defendants about the actual number of FBI informants (CHS).”

    A CHS is a “Confidential Human Source.”

    According to Kelley, the FBI agent actually participated in prayer meetings with a member of Rehl’s family!
    “Holy sh*t, this is beyond dirty.”

    “DC US Attorney Matthew Graves’ office notified the defense team TODAY that a defense witness has been an FBI informant since the BEGINNING of the case thru the start of the trial.”

    “The CHS participated in prayer meetings with…the defendants’ families.” Kelly wrote.

    Here is a screenshot of the court doc. Kelly included in her tweet that outlines how the FBI’s CHS (Confidential Human Source) has been in touch with the defendant’s counsel via telephone, text messaging, and other electronic means with one or more members of Rehl’s defense counsel members.

    In her final tweet, Kelly writes: So prosecutors knew back in December that defense planned to call this person as a witness. For 3 months, not only did Graves’ office refuse to disclose the witness was an FBI informant, the individual continued to work as an informant, spying on defense, during trial prep.

    Kelly’s entire article about how the FBI was caught “red-handed” spying on Reh’s communications with his then-attorney can be found in the tweet below. In her American Greatness article, Kelly explains how, incredibly, the DOJ is arguing that the communications of the Jan 6 prisoner with his attorney are not privileged because he is behind bars!

    Conservative “amuse” has also shared his outrage, which truly sums up how most Americans will feel when they see the stunning documents shared by Julie Kelly.

    He tweeted:

    SHOCK: The FBI is paying J6 defense witnesses to provide the defense’s trial strategy to Biden’s DOJ. The government has paid informants inside the trial, feeding information to the FBI and DOJ. This is beyond outrageous. There is no justice in America today. I am speechless.
