The most curious redaction in Saint Fauci's emails -
We've seen a lot of FOIA documents before, and it's normal for them to have redactions. But this redaction is different from the typical "deliberative process" and privacy exemptions.
It's in an email from Peter Daszak, whose EcoHealth Alliance was the pass through for taxpayer funding to get from Fauci’s NIH to the Wuhan lab. Daszak thanks Fauci for rejecting the lab leak theory and there’s a big block-redacted paragraph with a 7(A) exemption.
That exemption is for:
“(7) records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent that the production of such law enforcement records or information (A) could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings”
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina asked the Congressional Budget Office to estimate the impact of Joe Biden’s myriad budget busters already passed or in the works.
If everything that Biden has proposed were to be approved by Congress, the national debt would climb by a cool $22 trillion over the next decade. That’s a $7.6 trillion increase in the debt path that he inherited. And that’s with COVID over!
Here’s how the numbers stack up:
The so-called stimulus plan passed in February adds $2.1 trillion of debt spending.
Bidens first formal budget proposal adds another $665 billion for programs like more funding of the IRS, EPA, foreign aid, the Education Department plus more.
Term limits mean that New York City will finally be rid of the haplessly incompetent Bill de Blasio at the end to this year. Election Day is June 22 with the Democratic primary. The city’s declining quality of life is emerging as the biggest issue.
Crime rate is rising for the first time since the Giuliani and Bloomberg administrations cleaned up the city. For the month of April, the overall index of crime is up 30%, compared with a year ago. Grand larceny is up 66%, felony assault up 36% and shootings have increased 156%.
Half the city's Democratic primary voters rate “public safety and crime rates” as one of their top two priorities. Only 18% of New Yorkers want to see less police presence in their neighborhoods.
In NYC, 80,000 city employees will return this week. They’ve had a year long paid vacation, it’s time.
But city employee unions have learned something from teacher unions, who are masters in delay and exaggerated safety concerns.
The union demand is for no return to work until at least September, giving everyone a version of the summer vacation teachers have.
Over the weekend, hundreds of union members gathered outside City Hall to protest any return to work. "We as city workers are concerned that the mayor's hasty return to office planning is all risk and no reward," one speaker shouted. Um, isn’t a paycheck a reward?
There is something highly suspicious about the revised 2020 Census Bureau state population data which determines which states pick up & which states lose seats in House. Suddenly there are 2.5 mil more residents of blue states, & 500k fewer residents of red states than estimated.
These are the giant differences between the official 2020 Census count and the December, 2020 estimate. Nearly all of the big unexpected population gains were in blue states, and most of the unexpected population losses were in red states. Coincidence?
The New York population number was revised UPWARD by some 850,000 people. Implausibly, that is double the combined population of Buffalo and Rochester. During COVID hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers LEFT the Empire State.
Tonight’s virtual fundraiser with Joe Biden and Former President Obama was supposed to be an opportunity for the former president to make a “full-throated case” for Biden. Instead, it’s turning into yet another secretive event designed to protect Biden from scrutiny at all costs.
The Biden campaign is requiring supporters to pay money to watch while blocking the media from accessing any video or audio. Biden has become so bad that his handlers can’t even trust him to share a screen with President Obama.
If you do manage to catch the livestream, here are seven things that most certainly won’t be mentioned:
1) Obama and Biden oversaw the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression with stagnant wage growth that left people of color behind.
Joe Biden praised Nancy Pelosi’s ‘great taste’ as she blocked worker’s paychecks.
Biden failed to side with American workers and did nothing as they lost their paychecks. Now his campaign is trying to pretend it never happened.
As American workers suffered thanks to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer blocking more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Joe Biden was complicit.
When Pelosi had her Marie Antoinette moment in front of her $24,000 refrigerator stuffed full of luxury, $13-per-pint ice cream, did Joe Biden side with workers? No – Biden was in “Yas queen!” mode, telling Nervous Nancy, “you have great taste.”
Now we know why Hunter Biden went to such great links to keep his financial records from an Arkansas judge
There is zero evidence Hunter resigned from a Chinese equity firm, as he pledged to do.
For months and months, Hunter Biden tried every excuse in the book as he refused to turn over his financial records to an Arkansas court. After multiple delays, his deposition was imminent. If he didn't show up, there were going to be serious consequences.
In a last ditch effort, he tried to delay the pretrial hearing until after the Nov election, but the judge was tired of his ploys. Finally, despite the fact that he had previously sworn he had "no monthly income since May 2019,"
Obama slammed "old men" for "not getting out of the way" in December.
Obama did everything to avoid this moment. Here are 8 things you need to know about Obama’s refusal to endorse Biden for an entire year. (reminder for Biden in case he forgets again: Obama was last president.)
1. Obama failed to talk Joe Biden out of running for president in 2020.
“The two men spoke at least a half dozen times before Mr. Biden decided to run,” according to The New York Times, with Obama even telling Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.”
2. Obama succeeded in talking Joe Biden out of running for president in 2016.
“Obama repeatedly discouraged Joe Biden from running for the presidency to clear the path for Hillary Clinton,” according to Joe Biden.
Media doing damage control for Democrats is usually not this obvious.
Democrats blocked a vote to increase funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, which is designed to ensure that Americans keep their jobs and continue to receive paychecks during the coronavirus pandemic.
In short, Democrats are using the threat of workers losing their paychecks as “leverage” to play political games in the middle of a global pandemic.
Multiple media outlets initially reported the truth. But someone at the DNC must have sounded the alarm, because one by one these outlets rushed to change their headlines, doing damage for their political allies.
PROMISE KEPT: Ventilators and masks are being delivered to help America’s front line health care workers thanks to Trump’s mobilization efforts.
Sunday night, a plane carrying 135,000 N95 masks, 1.8 million surgical masks and gowns, and 10.3 million gloves landed in New York.
Another flight landed in Illinois on Monday, an another will be landing in Ohio in the next 24 hours.
These are among the 1st of dozens of scheduled flights carrying even more cargo through “Project Airbridge,” an unprecedented public-private mobilization led by the White House and funded by FEMA to expedite the delivery of critical medical equipment into the U.S. from overseas.
PROMISE MADE, PROMISE KEPT: Navy Hospital Ship Arrives in New York
The media tried to turn the life-saving deployment of the Comfort into an opportunity to attack the President.
They were wrong.
On March 18, President Trump announced that he was ordering the deployment of two Navy hospital ships to assist in efforts to combat the coronavirus, and that they would be launched “in the next week or so.”
Democrats and media saw this as another opportunity to attack the President. Dem operative Matt McDermott told his 81,000 Twitter followers that “Trump promised Navy hospital ships were being deployed. It was a lie.” Obama bro Dan Pfeiffer said ship “won’t be there for weeks.”
While President Trump was keeping Americans safe, all Joe Biden did was lie to undermine the public’s confidence in the coronavirus response.
What was Joe Biden doing? Sitting on the sidelines and playing petty politics while lying about President Trump’s coronavirus response.
Just this week: Biden failed to explain why the Obama-Biden Administration did not replenish the depleted national stockpile of N95 respirator masks after the H1N1 pandemic, despite experts’ warnings.
Biden pushed false claim that the Trump Administration "fired" pandemic experts on the National Security Council, yet failed to explain why in 2009 the Obama-Biden Administration eliminated the White House Health and Security Office, which worked on international health issues.
