“If the vaccines don’t prevent infection or transmission, we cannot insist that everyone take them for public health reasons – to stop the spread.
And if the vaccines are sometimes harmful, failing a risk-reward calculation for many people, then we should not encourage everyone to take them for individual health reasons. Dr. Jay Battacharya of Stanford says it may be unwise for those under 30 years old to take vaccine.
“In a nutshell, then, people closely connected to the Clinton campaign use privileged access to nonpublic information for political purposes. They concoct it into a political narrative they know is baseless but can be convincingly spun to suggest Trump is in cahoots with Putin.
They then simultaneously peddle that storyline to the media and the FBI — the latter of which opens an investigation of Trump because the Clinton team, in this instance Sussmann, misrepresents its intentions.
The saga began when a virologist named Jesse Bloom at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle discovered that genetic sequences were missing from the NIH-operated database scientists routinely use to investigate the origin and evolution of viruses.
As pathogens mutate and spread from person to person, the database is instrumental in tracking such mutations, which may also provide clues into their origin.
“America has gone from fake crises under Trump to real ones under Biden — from a period of peace to a presidency of body bags, botched evacuations, and failed drone strikes. Yet the ruling class’s appetite for hysterical books about the Trump presidency hasn’t waned.
Now Washington is excited about Bob Woodward’s take on Trump’s final days. Never mind that the biggest scandal his book has unearthed comes not from Trump but from General Mark Milley’s hyperventilating about him.
“Sussman’s statement to the FBI General Counsel that he was not acting on behalf of any client was knowingly and intentionally false.
In truth and in fact, and as SUSSMAN well knew, SUSSMANN acted on behalf of and in coordination with two specific clients of [Perkins Coie], Tech Executive-1 and the Clinton Campaign, in assembling and conveying these allegations.”
“During a lengthy hearing for the conspiracy case involving 18 members of the far-right group Oath Keepers, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta for D.C. asked about the determinations prosecutors used to file a felony charge of “obstructing an official proceeding” of Congress.
“Essentially, what you said is, ‘Trust us,’?” Mehta said.
“And that is a real problem when it comes to criminal statutes, to suggest, ‘We know it when we see it, and we’ll pick and choose when it is an appropriate exercise of prosecutorial discretion.’?”
Former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller "did not" authorize Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley to reach out to his Chinese counterpart regarding a possible future attack: Report washex.am/3tKMnbw
Miller, former head of the Department of Defense following the 2020 election until Inauguration Day, told the outlet he “did not now and would not ever authorize” such calls.
He described the calls as a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination.” He said the chairman should resign “immediately.”
Eligible businesses and events that choose to require proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test after that date will be exempt from new public health restrictions being brought in.
However, there are also new public health measures for the province that apply generally — such as mandatory work-from-home orders, mandatory masking in schools, and restrictions on indoor social gatherings.
“The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff essentially usurped the chain of command and attempted to take civilian control of the United States military away from a duly elected president, simply because of his own gut feelings tinged with a bit of paranoia.
The larger problem at hand is that no one elected Gen. Milley to anything. It is not the job of the military state, or the intelligence state (James Comey) to override the governing authority granted to the president of the United States. We the people make those choices.
“There is the potential that former Feinstein staffer Daniel Jones - as well as the researches behind the Alfa Bank matter - will also face charges of giving false information to federal officials.
Fusion GPS has been fighting to keep secret its communications about Trump/Alfa Bank secret in a civil suit. Court records we reviewed appear to show the degree with which Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, and associates went in drafting and promoting the false Alfa Bank/Trump Org story
NEW: Special Counsel John Durham seeks indictment against lawyer at Steele dossier-linked law firm over Alfa Bank matter: Report washex.am/3lsAC5V
Durham reportedly seeks a grand jury indictment against Michael Sussmann, a cybersecurity lawyer at a Democratic-allied law firm closely linked to British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s discredited dossier.
The charge is said to be related to an alleged false statement to the FBI about the identity of a client when Sussmann pushed now-debunked claims about secret communications between Russia’s Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.
Gen. Milley should be asked to clarify, under oath, the context of his communications with China and nuclear launch procedure when he testifies before the Senate on Sept. 28.
America’s military brass rightly has deconfliction channels open with adversaries when their forces are in proximity, but promising a tip off before the President ordered an attack would be an outrageous usurpation.
Regardless of what “fears” Milley may have had following January 6th, we still have a constitution and a military that is controlled by civilian, elected leaders.
There is no possible justification for a military general setting out to not only conduct his own foreign policy but to also offer aid and comfort to our enemies. That is, by the very definition of the word, treasonous.
Blinken admitted that officials were “still investigating” whether a drone strike at a suspected ISIS-K terrorist accidentally killed an Afghan aid worker and nine family members, including seven kids.
Blinken tried to downplay the number of child brides being brought to the US by Afghan refugees.
“But as is so often the case, the most disturbing aspects of elite behavior are found not in what they have prohibited but rather in what they have decided is permissible.
When it comes to mask mandates, it is now commonplace to see two distinct classes of people: those who remain maskless as they are served, and those they employ as their servants who must have their faces covered at all times.
The Biden administration and its “justice” crooks really need to get some new material
Capitol Police arrest man with bayonet and machete in truck near DNC headquarters - CNNPolitics cnn.com/2021/09/13/pol…
.@CapitolPolice say they arrested a California man who had multiple knives in his truck, which had a swastika and other White supremacist symbols painted on it, near the Democratic National Committee headquarters early Monday morning.
Officers on patrol noticed the Dodge Dakota pickup truck around midnight on Sunday. Police say the truck didn't have a license plate but instead a picture of an American flag.
The reported case of mistaken identity also further tars President Biden for his chaotic pullout of US troops from Afghanistan, which left behind hundreds of US citizens and thousands of at-risk Afghans.
Zemari Ahmadi and nine members of his family, including seven children, were killed in the airstrike on Aug. 29, one day before the final US evacuation flights from Kabul, his brother Romal Ahmadi told the New York Times.
