[Babylon Bee] WASHINGTON, D.C.—After a batch of his emails were made public through an FOIA request, a desperate, frantic Dr. Fauci called in an expert technician to make sure no more damaging emails were made public.
The technician, renowned Beltway-area email server technician Hilgo Clintmann, arrived in his van and began to inspect Fauci's modest email server configuration.
"Oh, yes, very bad email security here sir, very, very bad," Clintmann said as he walked through the server racks and inspected the various hard drives and cables. "We're going to need to rework this whole setup. You need to be able to, how you say, disappear emails right away. We will take care of this with emergency panic buttons. Do not worry, Dr. Fauci -- we will make sure you are never embarrassed ever again."
Clintmann even told an elated Dr. Fauci that his company also specializes in finding out who leaked a particular set of emails and making sure that they "never make that mistake again." "It is a, how you say, cleaning service. You make the mess, we clean it up."
Finally, before leaving, Clintmann installed an emergency hammer behind a piece of glass reading "Break in case of federal investigation."
[National Review] I used to belong to a war-fighting organization, where we were taught a shared set of Army values. We were taught mission accomplishment before all else, enforced by "mission first and people always." Within the Department of Defense (DoD) Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan we are told that "diversity is a strategic imperative — critical to mission readiness and accomplishment." We are also told, by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, that it must be a priority for the military "to look like America and not only in the ranks, but our leadership should look like America." On the surface, this sounds okay. But it flips what had long been a soldier’s commitment to the Army and mission: The new priority turns the Army into a social experiment at the cost of mission readiness. The new push within the DoD for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) goes well beyond measures to ensure equal opportunity and instead looks to create preferences that have nothing to do with merit. Our military will suffer if it does not change course.
Stalin had 'woke' seminars* in the Red Army in the 30s. One of the reasons the Germans got within kilometers of Red Square in 1941.
* Although the senior ranks experienced the most severe losses in terms of percentages (11 of 13 army commanders were shot, as were 57 of the 85 corps commanders and 110 of the 195 division commanders), the numerical bulk of the victims came from subordinates unfortunate enough to be on the wrong staff or performing the wrong mission. Estimates of the total losses created by this mass bloodletting range from 15,000 to 30,000 officers, depending upon the dates used and the figures available. - cite
#1, Stalin must have felt like he had good reason to be as paranoid as he was. In fact, his Communist Party's expropriations and murders may well have adversely affected many of those officers and their families and so they had good reason to want him dead. The question then becomes: Are Biden and his handlers planning to give today's American middle class and thereby the officers in today's military the same motivations that Soviet communists did to their military in the 1920's and 1930's?

^ This was my 1st thought - followed by: It won't be the military that suffers, and that is the desired design.

Malfeasance in office, or official misconduct, is the commission of an unlawful act, done in an official capacity, that affects the performance of official duties. Malfeasance in office is often grounds for a just cause removal of an elected official by statute or recall election.
By subjugation of merit promotion, EEO employment, the SecDef and subordinates have breached the law
I will admit my Universal M1 was better built and had a better accuracy and 100 yds.
But back in 2011, I traded it using a verified ID process for a VG condition Kel-Tech SUB2000 in 40 cal. Note: At the time Universal M1's were selling for $85 to $250 depending on condition.
Because the emergency application I wanted called for FOLD-UP. The Kel-Tech2000 folded to just under 17" and fit nicely in its intended and easy to quickly access location. Plus it eliminated the need for the harder to find (at the time and now again) 30 carbine cal. ammo. from my inventory list.
Do I miss my M1 yes, but my applicational need was better addressed with the Kel-Tec.
[BBC] Robert Mugabe's relatives say he died a bitter man nearly two years after he was forced to hand over power to current President Emmerson Mnangagwa - and his bitterness, even in death, is creating feuds.
In an African traditional context, the dead can speak, often through a vengeful spirit that is believed to respond violently against erstwhile tormentors. Therefore, the spirit needs to be appeased to avoid the risk of being destroyed by it.
If Mugabe's temperament in real life could be measured against the intensity of his supposed potential vengeful spirit, it would be like the molten lava that has recently been spewing from Mount Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo, consuming everything in its path.
Mr Mugabe was a Catholic, partly raised by missionaries who had immense influence in his upbringing. But he never abandoned all of the traditional beliefs.

[Regnum] Once I was offered to write a book about Che Guevara. I don’t know why exactly to me, but they offered it. I came up with, so it seemed to me, an original concept - but its publishers did not approve. And I didn't want to write a banal biography - in general, the book did not take place. But then many times I became a participant in one or another TV show about Che Guevara. What am I doing? To the fact that, yes, of course, his personality is extremely mythologized and, like a cake with aromas, is surrounded by a reverent aura, but even so one can testify: Ernesto Che Guevara was a persistent, ideological fighter for the highest values, as he understood them.
[Regnum] The USSR was neither a "typical empire" with their "typical problems", nor an empire in general. It was an innovative political and social community.
In a few years - not in decades, like the United States, but in years - the Soviet Union raised a huge part of Russians and especially subjects of the Russian Empire of other nationalities from the bottom to the top of the social ladder of the country of the modern era. People remembered and appreciated this. Therefore, the destruction of the USSR did not come from ordinary people, not from workers, but from the elite culturally corrupted by the West. Moreover, it came not from the outskirts, but from Russia.
Of course, it is necessary to discuss why the Soviet Union ceased to exist, but not in connection with what is happening in the United States, which were actively destroying the Soviet Union. We must discuss this ourselves, within ourselves, very delicately and, most importantly, with respect for our native country.
Russia itself has been in the situation of “we will buy these, we will scare these, but we will agree with these” for many years. Because the opposite of this situation is a situation when we bring the world not money and politicking, but our ideas. But we have no ideology, so we bring the so-called "pragmatism" to the world, and this is "we will agree with these, and this will give beads."
It is not for us to take care that the United States does not follow the path of the Soviet Union. The United States has done so much harm to our country that now let them harm themselves as much as they want.
Oh, okay. Nonsense too can be tinged with our perceptions.
On a serious note I'd like to say that while the fate of Russia may not depend on what happens in the USA, the rest of the world needs to be very very worried. When the wakandans, globalists and islamists are done rending it apart like a buzkashi goat, America will become the first in a line of dominos to fall on modern civilization. It will be a morale victory and a boost for the globalists that will bite Russia and all isolationists in the arse later.
[PJMedia] Peter Daszak, the president of the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance, is a key figure in trying to discover if the coronavirus came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) or occurred naturally. He can also answer a lot of questions about the funding of the WIV and what exactly they were researching there.
Two Republican members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee contacted Daszak, asking him 18 specific questions about his role in the funding for the Wuhan lab. They gave him a deadline of May 18 to respond.
Daszak never got back to the congressmen. Nor is he likely to 'get back' to them.
Since the Republican committee members do not have subpoena power, being in the minority for the moment, they have no way to compel Daszak to answer questions. But given that the questions are related to a pandemic that’s killed a couple of million people, you would think that the scientist would be eager to cooperate. 'Scientists' very likely would cooperate. Unfortunately, these people are not scientists.
Why he does not tell us says a lot about the funding trail for the Wuhan lab and Daszak’s continued, almost desperate, efforts to keep the truth of what was being researched at Wuhan from the rest of us.
Daszak told the scientists that they “should not sign this statement, so it has some distance from us and therefore doesn’t work in a counterproductive way,” Vanity Fair said, citing emails obtained by the group US Right to Know.
“We’ll then put it out in a way that doesn’t link it back to our collaboration so we maximize an independent voice,” Daszak reportedly added.
The nonprofit, which says it’s “dedicated to protecting wildlife and public health from the emergency of disease,” has received as much as $15 million a year in grant money from various federal agencies, Vanity Fair said.
EcoHealth has used those grants to fund controversial “gain-of-function” research — which can increase the infectiousness and virulence of viruses — at facilities that include the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to Vanity Fair.
The WIV received about $600,0000 from a five-year, $3 million-plus grant that Vanity Fair said EcoHealth got from the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Classic nonprofit intelligence community money laundering project utilizing a concern for "wildlife" as a cover for action. Sorry folks, just a bit too foking obvious.
The only question remaining at this point is the intended goal.
/\ Hormonal contraception and Planned Parenthood have never really caught on internationally. Endless wars, urban crime and terrorism continue to do little to assist population control. The numbers simply aren't there.
Bottom line: The Pentagon was, through USAID, funding research of bioweapons as part of its responsibility to develop defenses to bioweapon attacks — anti-viral treatments and vaccines. To develop treatments and vaccines for bioweapons, you need to first develop such weapons.
EcoHealth Alliance took funding for research from that USAID, money that came from a Unted States Department of Defense bioweapons research agency, and spent it doing research on bioweapons with a state-run bioweapons lab in China.
Therefore, the United States military was (possibly unwittingly) funding bioweapons research at a military bioweapons lab in China. For years.
Hormonal contraception and Planned Parenthood have never really caught on internationally.
Birth rates have dropped significantly almost everywhere across the world despite that. According to the CIA World Factbook, only Niger has a total fertility rate above 6 children/women, and less than half the world’s nations are above replacement. India is at 2.28, China claims 1.6, with a median age of 39 for females, while over fifty countries have an average age of 40 or above, and forty have shrinking populations.
[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] Ever since President Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S. We get to suffer the consequences... ordered US intelligence agencies to investigate reports that the Covid-19 virus might have beat feet from a laboratory in Wuhan, commentators have argued over what difference it makes if the theory turns out to be right. Here’s why the answer matters: The discovery that the virus had a human origin would give the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men... saga what it’s lacked: a villain.

[The Last Refuge] Okay, straight talk. This discovery makes the suspicions of an intentionally released Pandemic virus, with a political intent, to "STOP TRUMP" look exponentially more plausible. SARS = Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, the deadly consequence within COVID-19.
And there’s a larger backstory. Eleven Days before leaving office President Obama’s administration re-authorized funding for the creation of biological weapons using SARS viruses. However, essentially this re-authorization was only kickstarting funding within the U.S. because the funding of weaponization of SARS-CoV-2 never actually stopped in 2014. The media reporting on this is misleading, if not downright false.
In the original pdf guidance for the 2014 research pause of into weaponization of SARS viruses there was a footnote that everyone seems to have missed:
[WASHINGTONPOST] Next year, our nation will celebrate 75 years since Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier. But three-quarters of a century after Robinson helped sports transcend racism, a new group of activists wants to ensure that future generations of ballplayers remain fixated on race.
As a Virginia resident and parent of two young children, I find attempts to indoctrinate Little League coaches on critical race theory not only troubling but also extremely harmful.
The news that the Alexandria Little League instructed coaches to cancel practice May 24 for a seminar on “equity” and “inclusion” held by the Positive Coaching Alliance raised questions on several levels. For starters, many children have spent much of the past year confined to their houses, given many park closures during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. Canceling outdoor sports practice can only compound the physical, social and mental damage already imposed by the coronavirus lockdowns.
Moreover, these training sessions cost substantial sums — from $1,000 to $10,000,although the Alexandria Little League did not disclose how much it paid the Positive Coaching Alliance to conduct the training. For an “anti-racism” movement whose leaders have explicitly called capitalism racist, people sure do make some tidy sums engaging in this kind of training.
But more important than the cost of the training is its content, which raises the most questions of all. One document on the Positive Coaching Alliance website talks of “microaggressions,” suggesting that practically everything has racial or racist implications. Another glossary linked to by the site states that gender “transcends biology” and “can be very complex since people can identify in diverse ways.” That same glossary discusses “equality” and “meritocracy” in a skeptical light, asking “whether equality is enough and whether equity is a more important principle.”
But sports exist as perhaps the purest form of meritocracy, one that determines results based on one’s talents and preparation, rather than one’s race, class or background. Youth sports teach children many things — the value of teamwork, and good sportsmanship even in defeat — including the notion of fair play, where all competitors get treated equally regardless of who they are or where they come from. This type of “diversity” training would undo all that, replacing it with an unhealthy fixation on race as the source of society’s problems.
[Gateway] The UN and some US entities worked before and after the 2018 and 2020 elections and many of the same players in these efforts are now trying to derail or stop 2020 election audits in the US today.
Harri Hursti, Ph.D., computer scientist, and Elizabeth Howard, Cybersecurity and Elections Counsel of the radical, Soros-funded nonprofit, the Brennan Center for Justice in Manhattan, are both experts in election cybersecurity. In 2018 they were part of a UN initiative surrounding election cybersecurity and now they are part of efforts to derail or sabotage audits of the 2020 election, Howard in Maricopa County, Arizona, and Hursti in Windham, New Hampshire.
Yesterday we reported that Howard and Hursti briefed a roomful of U.N. election observers on November 3, 2018. That briefing took place in Washington, D.C. and it concerned election cybersecurity. Three days later, on Election Day, a team of 186 U.N. election observers was deployed all over America — we don’t know where — to observe our mid-term elections and to gather data for the U.N.
