Senator Rand Paul says he will ask DOJ for 'criminal referral' over Fauci testimony
[FOX] Sen. Rand Paul said he will send a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal investigation of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

"I will be sending a letter to Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress. We have scientists that were lined up by the dozens to say that the research he was funding was gain-of-function," the Kentucky Republican told Sean Hannity of Fauci on Tuesday evening’s "Hannity" program.

"He's doing this because he has a self interest to cover his tracks and to cover his connection to Wuhan lab," Paul continued.

Paul’s interview comes after he and Fauci had another heated exchange during a Senate hearing Tuesday when the two traded accusations of "lying" over gain-of-function research at a Wuhan lab floated as the origin of the coronavirus.

#4  Despite Fauci's word salad, it seems to me the salient point is that US tax money (with Fauci's knowledge and approval) went into one end of a Chinese pipeline and a bioweapon emerged at the other end. Talking about the exact intended purpose of the cash ignores the fact that cash has a serious tendency to be fungible.

Thousands of federal convicts released to home confinement during COVID will be sent BACK to prison when the pandemic 'emergency' is over, Biden administration says
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
Go ahead, pull the other one
  • The White House's move underscores a Trump-era memo written in late January

  • It states that inmates released on home confinement under the CARES Act must return to prison up to 30 days after the pandemic state of emergency ends

  • Officials reportedly said the decision is based on legal interpretation, not policy

  • The decision applies to roughly 4,000 nonviolent inmates

  • Democrats in Congress and groups including the ACLU have put pressure on Biden to use his presidential powers to reverse the Trump DOJ policy

  • A nationwide spike in COVID cases fueled by the Delta variant means the emergency declaration will likely last through the rest of the year

Vaccinated Pelosi & Biden Aides Test Positive For The Coof After Meeting With TX Dems…
[FOX] A spokesperson for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tested positive Monday for coronavirus following a meeting last week with members of the Texas Legislature who fled the state for Washington, D.C.
proving the vaccine only effective in humans
Drew Hammill, a top aide to Pelosi, said the unidentified staff member was fully vaccinated and did not have recent contact with the top California Democrat, though the speaker's office is taking extra precautions as a result.

"Yesterday, a fully vaccinated senior spokesperson in the speaker’s press office tested positive for COVID after contact with members of the Texas state legislature last week," Hammill said in a statement obtained by Fox News.

"This individual has had no contact with the speaker since exposure. The entire press office is working remotely today with the exception of individuals who have had no exposure to the individual or have had a recent negative test. Our office will continue to follow the guidance of the Office of Attending Physician closely."

On Tuesday, Pelosi and her staff were spotted wearing masks again at the Capitol. Following a loosening of mask restrictions by the Capitol physician, many members have opted against masks in recent weeks.

Posted by: Skidmark || 07/21/2021 12:12 Comments || Top||

#9  Masks dont matter - aerosolized particles of the virus are smaller than the mask can filter.

And the vaccine is not a preventative one, it's an immunity-boosting one. It is designed to give the body the ability to recognize the infection quicker and produce the antibodies needed to effectively fight the virus quicker, rather than having them continuously present, unlike, say, the polio vaccine, which provides immunity. So yes, you may get infect by a variant even if you have been vaccinated, but your body is much more likely to fight it off before it becomes serious than if you were not vaccinated. As far as I can see from public data, the people that are being hospitalized and dying are the UN-vaccinated. The math says to get the job, preferably the Pfizer one, especially if you are extremely overweight, diabetic and have heart/lung issues, and are over 60 years old

That's the main group this thing is hospitalizing and killing, and that's why the FL gov's action to concentrate on protecting that group worked as well as it did, and NY was a death trap because they did nearly the opposite.

Funny thing is, this who Sir Robin (monty python) act by the Dems in Texas is going to cost them dearly in 2022, not jsut in Texas, but nationally.

Government Corruption
Buzzfeed makes STUNNING revelation about the FBI and the plot to kidnap Gov. Witmer
[BUZZFEED via RS] Today Buzzfeed wrote an article on the now prosecution of plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer last year, and they made a stunning revelation in the process:
BUZZFEED — The audacious plot to kidnap a sitting governor — seen by many as a precursor to the Jan. 6 assault on the US Capitol by hundreds of Trump-supporting protesters — has become one of the most important domestic terrorism investigations in a generation.

The prosecution has already emerged as a critical test for how the Biden administration approaches the growing threat of homegrown anti-government groups. More than that, though, the case epitomizes the ideological divisions that have riven the country over the past several years. To some, the FBI’s infiltration of the innermost circle of armed anti-government groups is a model for how to successfully forestall dangerous acts of domestic terrorism. But for others, it’s an example of precisely the kind of outrageous government overreach that radicalizes people in the first place, and, increasingly, a flashpoint for deep state conspiracy theories.

The government has documented at least 12 confidential informants who assisted the sprawling investigation. The trove of evidence they helped gather provides an unprecedented view into American extremism, laying out in often stunning detail the ways that anti-government groups network with each other and, in some cases, discuss violent actions.

An examination of the case by BuzzFeed News also reveals that some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported. Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them.

A longtime government informant from Wisconsin, for example, helped organize a series of meetings around the country where many of the alleged plotters first met one another and the earliest notions of a plan took root, some of those people say. The Wisconsin informant even paid for some hotel rooms and food as an incentive to get people to come.

The Iraq War vet, for his part, became so deeply enmeshed in a Michigan militant group that he rose to become its second-in-command, encouraging members to collaborate with other potential suspects and paying for their transportation to meetings. He prodded the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping plot to advance his plan, then baited the trap that led to the arrest.

This account is based on an analysis of court filings, transcripts, exhibits, audio recordings, and other documents, as well as interviews with more than two dozen people with direct knowledge of the case, including several who were present at meetings and training sessions where prosecutors say the plot was hatched. All but one of the 14 original defendants have pleaded not guilty, and they vigorously deny that they were involved in a conspiracy to kidnap anyone.
You know maybe twenty years ago a report on the FBI like this would have been shocking to the American people, and it honestly still is to some degree given what the FBI is supposed to be about. But after what we saw with the FBI protecting Hillary and then trying foist a coup against Trump in the name of Russian collusion, I’m sure none of you are actually surprised. And none of us will be if these allegations by Buzzfeed turn out to be true. It’s too late. We’ve already lost trust in the FBI and it’s leadership, and that includes Trump appointee Chris Wray.

#2  Nothing new here. This is what the FBI did to the left in the 60s and 70s. Of course, then they were exposed in public and had a lot of their powers curtailed, but that was long ago when people actually expected more from a respected institution like the FBI. Today, they are yet another group of hostile elites who despise the American people and wish us harm.

The audacious plot to kidnap a sitting governor — seen by many as a precursor to the Jan. 6 assault on the US Capitol by hundreds of Trump-supporting protesters

Way to hyperbolic on the part of Buzzfeed.
Buzzfeed is not good at making causal connections or doing investigative journalism. Personally, IHMO January 6th was a setup. The left was trying to set up a narrative by using a false flag operation to destroy Trump. We still have not gotten to the bottom of things because many are pushing the narrative rather than the truth.

The narrative of the "Big Lie" is being pushed by the left rather than trying to find out the truth about the election.

At some point the number of people out here opposing the B.S. is going to be overwhelming larger than the ruling class, criminally installed minority. That point in time may be already here. What then? Do we look like CCP rather than a freedom-loving Democratic Republic where people choose their own government?

Motion to Proceed Immediately with Ballot Inspection in Fulton County Submitted to Superior Court
[TRENDINGPOLITICS] The motion to proceed immediately with ballot inspection in Fulton County, Georgia has been submitted to the county’s Superior Court. The news came by way of court documents made public on Tuesday.

"Motion to immediately proceed with ballot inspection: Come now, Petitioners Garland Favorito, Michael Scupin, Trevor Terris, Sean Draime, Stacey Doran, Christopher Peck, and Brandi Taylor (hereafter the Favorito Petitioners), by and through their attorneys of record, and file their motion to immediately proceed with ballot inspection," the motion stated.

"Wherefore, the Favorito Petitioners pray: a) That the court SETS a date, time and location to conduct the planning meeting for the ballot inspection immediately," it continued. "That the court ORDERS the ballot inspection commence immediately after a suitable ballot inspection plans is devised; AND for any other relief the Court DEEMS just and proper."

The document dated on the 17th was released publicly on Tuesday morning. In June, a Henry County judge dropped Fulton County, its elections board, and the court clerk from the suit under ’sovereign immunity’ — but he added individual members of the county’s board of elections as respondents.

The Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero ruled to allow for the inspection of nearly 150,000 absentee ballots in Fulton County, Georgia. The judge’s ballot review, which was requested under ’discovery’ rules, will apparently proceed.

"The plaintiffs in the case, nine Georgia voters, scored a victory last month when Amero ordered scanned images of 147,000 absentee ballots to be unsealed," the Washington Examiner reported. "But he placed the inspection, which would allow for high-resolution re-scans of ballots and an in-person review, on hold while considering the defendants’ motions to dismiss."

"An attorney for the Fulton elections board said the ruling prevents the possibility for an in-person review of absentee ballots using high-powered microscopes in the Georgia World Congress Center, as sought by those who believe fraud resulted in Democrat Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. An incredibly corrupt version of Jar-Jar Binks, only well into his dotage...
’s 12,000-vote win over Republican Donald Trump
...His ancestors didn't own any slaves...
," the Atlanta Journal Constitution earlier reported.

"That litigation is finished," said Don Samuel, a prominent Atlanta attorney hired by the Fulton elections board. "Is there going to be an audit? Not right now ... There’s no discovery permitted. There’s no lawsuit pending anymore."

The claimant Garland Favorito argued that the ruling was a victory.

"Favorito plans to submit a ballot inspection plan next week based on the judge’s order in May to unseal absentee ballots, allowing for high-resolution re-scans of ballots and an in-person review," AJC noted.

"We just want Fulton to be held responsible," Favorito said. "We could be moving forward any time now unless they try to stall again. Fulton may make a new desperation move to postpone it."

Biden Brags About 'His' Economic Recovery
[ISSUESINSIGHTS] As TV screens showed the Dow Jones tumbling on inflation and renewed COVID fears, President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant... or is that an act?...
took to the podium Monday to brag about how great the economy is doing and why he deserves all the credit. It was a remarkable act of prestidigitation for such an old man.

Biden said that "it’s true that the economy was sputtering before I got here." That’s provably false.

He said that: "We’ve gone from 60,000 jobs per month to ... more than 600,000 jobs per month since I took office." That’s grossly misleading.

He went on to boast that: "Look, we’ve brought this economy back from the brink." That is a bald-faced lie.

Biden’s intent with his remarks is to argue that his $1.9 trillion "rescue" bill saved the economy, and the even bigger spending bills he wants Congress to pass will keep it going. No one should believe a word of it.

Take his claims about jobs. It is true that the average job gain in Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
’s last three months in office averaged 60,000. But Biden is seriously cherry-picking his data.

The average monthly job growth from April 2020 to January 2021 was 1.5 million. That’s the average. Per month. The labor market had regained 60% of the jobs lost by the time Trump left office.

Compared to that, the 600,000 monthly job gains under Biden looks paltry.

Job growth was so fast in Trump’s last nine months in office that the unemployment rate plunged from 14.8% in April 2020 to 6.3% by January 2021. That was far below what the economic experts Biden loves to quote had expected.

By comparison, the unemployment rate under Biden has gone down only three-tenths of a percentage point, from 6.2% in February to 5.9% in June (which was up from May’s 5.8%).
