Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here In an astonishing sequence sure to shock those not propagandized against the possibility, a Chinese virologist and whistleblower named Li-Meng Yan responded, “Yes, it’s intentionally” when asked by Tucker Carlson on his FOX News show whether she believes the Chinese Communist Party released the Coronavirus “on purpose.” If true, the implications of this bombshell allegation are global and earthquake everything about our understanding of the pandemic. Yan says she has proof of her charge that the Wuhan Coronavirus was lab-created and promises to release evidence backing her claims. Other Chinese scientists and doctors who have spoken out about the origin of the virus have disappeared – which is why Yan fled Hong Kong earlier this year: for her own safety. The question as to whether COVID-19 was created in a lab in Wuhan or is a naturally occurring wild virus that originated at the Wuhan wet market a few short miles away was raised by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) back in February of this year. His conjecture at the time was received with derision by much of the mainstream media, where Cotton was pilloried with disparagements labeling his pronouncement “fringe” and a “conspiracy theory.” At the time, Cotton stated: “We don’t have evidence that this disease originated there, but because of China’s duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning, we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says, and China right now is not giving evidence on that question at all.” This stood to reason despite the reflexive undermining by the Fourth Estate of anything advanced by Republicans. And it has now been backed by a scientist at the World Health Organization (WHO) reference laboratory at Hong Kong University – one of the top Coronavirus labs in the world. Given the CCP government’s singularly influential ability to control the global narrative on the pandemic – which has included successfully insisting countries around the globe refer to it as COVID-19 rather than the Chinese or Wuhan Coronavirus to avoid the “racist” association to its place of origin – Yan is a brave woman indeed. She is up against the government to whom the NBA, members of Congress, and corporate CEOs around the world genuflect despite its appalling human rights record. Yan calmly stated: “I get deeply into such investigating in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved in the hospital. Also, I work with the top corona virologist in the world. So together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.” Yan is one of the very first virologists in the world to study the Coronavirus, but her allegations conflict with a recently lowercased member of President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force. In May, Anthony Fauci asserted that: “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated — the way the mutations have naturally evolved.” Based on Li-Meng Yan’s assertions, it appears Fauci may have been running cover for the Wuhan lab – but why? The answer to that may be that Fauci funneled 3.7 million taxpayer dollars to the Wuhan lab in 2014 to help fund gain of function (super virulence) studies deemed too dangerous in the USA and banned for several years. Fauci may have a dog in the fight. It’s also worth noting that Fauci reversed his opinions on flattening the curve, quarantines, face masks, the availability of a vaccine, social contact during COVID, and antibodies, so he is no longer an unimpeachable source of information on all matters Coronavirus. And Fauci is willfully skirting the inconvenient truth that the State Department warned about the Wuhan lab in 2018, stating there was: “… a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.” Was there an accidental release of a highly virulent coronavirus from a lab in Wuhan – or was it intentional? Was it actually a wild virus after all? We don’t know with certainty, but Li-Meng Yan’s clarion call is deeply alarming. Yan has now risked her life to bring the truth that she alleges about Wuhan to the West. She rues the fact that she had to leave behind her life, her job, her family, her friends, and her husband from whom she became estranged over her decision to become a whistleblower. Yan is speaking out even though she believes – with good reason – that she is in danger. She states: “I know how they treat whistleblowers.” Let’s hope her brave sacrifice and her grave message to America and the world don’t go unheeded. ~ Read more from Pennel Bird.
Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here Another disgraceful chapter in the decline of the establishment media continues to unfold as the U.S. military on September 14 revealed that it had been unable to corroborate the details of an alarming New York Times article from June. Although it continues to investigate an allegation that the Russian government has offered cash rewards to the Taliban for the killings of American military personnel, a senior Marine Corps general told NBC News that he had uncovered no evidence to support the story. What is more likely, then? That high-level people are willing to go on record denying something they know is true, or that The Times’ anonymous sources either do not exist or are lying? Falsehood Flies, the Truth Limps When it comes to negative stories about the Trump administration, one must be careful. It is always worth weighing the likelihood that someone is perpetrating a smear, against the possibility that honest government officials have uncovered a terrible secret that the president or cabinet officials have been keeping under wraps. In all honesty, both scenarios are almost equally likely when it comes to any U.S. president – or any other world leader, for that matter. A portion of Americans will immediately choose to believe that the story in question is nothing more than a fabrication. Another group will accept without hesitation whatever accusation has been made – needing no further evidence or investigation. Therein lies the payoff for media organizations that, like The New York Times, are interested in only one thing: discrediting and disparaging President Trump and doing all they can to ensure that he does not win a second term in the White House. These media organizations do not care if the tales they put out are debunked or later denied by numerous identified sources – as the Russian bounty story has been. Once it is out there in the public consciousness, nothing else matters. On Twitter and Facebook, the original report will be shared tens of thousands of times. The refutation, when it comes, will be passed around far fewer times. As the Anglo-Irish satirist and author, Jonathan Swift, wrote in 1710: “Besides, as the vilest Writer has his Readers, so the greatest Liar has his Believers; and it often happens, that if a Lie be believ’d only for an Hour, it has done its Work, and there is no farther occasion for it. Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it; so that when Men come to be undeceiv’d, it is too late; the Jest is over, and the Tale has had its Effect…” Case in point, the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. The special counsel concluded that there was no proof of deliberate conspiracy between then-candidate Trump and the Russians. Reams of documents have since come to light, proving multiple instances of political bias on the part of the FBI investigators. Protocols and, in at least one case, laws were broken. Still, the majority of Americans who dislike Trump to this day insist that the president and the Russians collaborated to steal the 2016 election. So it is with the Russian bounty story. Even on the same day that General Frank McKenzie told NBC: “It just has not been proved to a level of certainty that satisfies me,” Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) tweeted: “Plain & simple: Donald Trump has gone 80 days without condemning [Russian President] Putin for putting reported bounties on our troops. This is unforgivable.” Despite including the word “reported,” Duckworth deliberately perpetuated an unfounded allegation for which not a shred of evidence has been presented and behind which stand only anonymous sources. Anonymity is For Cowards The anonymity of these sources brings up another point. Why would an intelligence official, having discovered that a foreign government was offering financial rewards to a U.S. enemy for killing American soldiers, not want to come forward publicly and reveal themselves? Because doing so would hurt their career, perhaps? Putting one’s career ahead of exposing such a scheme is nothing less than an act of rank cowardice. Gen. McKenzie did not simply decide to issue an off-the-cuff denial, either. The military has investigated the matter, analyzing intelligence relating to Taliban attacks against American personnel over the past several years. Thus far, no connection to any agreement with the Russians has been discovered. The case is not closed yet, and McKenzie’s admission of that fact demonstrates that he is not operating with an intent to kill the story – if he were, he would have deliberately left NBC with the impression that the investigation had concluded. The most likely scenario, here, is that The Times – probably in consultation with anti-Trump intelligence officials and perhaps even Democratic politicians – decided that this would be the perfect story to damage the president in two ways. It would maybe drive a wedge between Mr. Trump and the military and, at the same time, breathe a little air into the rotting corpse of the Russian collusion fable. Perhaps, too, the establishment media knows that President Trump has single-handedly discredited them more than any other person in American history. For that, they hate him and they know that, if they fail to bring him down, they are finished. It is not about Russians and the Taliban – this seemingly concocted scandal is one more Hail Mary pass into the November end zone. Four more years of Trump will destroy The Gray Lady and all of her elitist media co-conspirators. ~ Read more from Graham J. Noble.
Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here Here’s a story that the corporate press would rather you didn’t hear. Social media company Twitter has flagged videos of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden acting inappropriately with young girls. While gleefully reporting on every instance in which social media companies take action against President Donald Trump, it remains oddly silent on this particular development. Twitter Flags Biden Videos RT reported that C-Span footage showing Biden touching young girls was flagged as “child sexual exploitation” by Twitter. This flag was discovered during an online argument about the former vice president. I tried to respond with a video of evidence on how Biden interacts with women and little girls but Twitter flagged me for trying to post images of child molestation hahahahahahhaha. Guess twitter agrees with @jvgraz pic.twitter.com/tOIUMrcyAs — Joe Bidens Televised Shart (@koenigjake) September 12, 2020 During the conversation, Johnny Graz, a progressive activist, argued that Biden should be investigated for sexual assault. To bolster Graz’s argument, another Twitter user attempted to post a video compilation of Biden inappropriately touching young girls during photo ops. So that user, named Jake Koenig, posted a screenshot displaying Twitter’s message informing him that the post was flagged for “trying to post images of child molestation.” He wrote: “I tried to respond with a video of evidence on how Biden interacts with women and little girls but Twitter flagged me for trying to post images of child molestation hahahahahahhaha. Guess twitter agrees with @jvgrazpic.” Twitter not only marked the footage as child sexual exploitation but also banned the user’s account until he deleted the post. The video shows Biden touching lawmakers’ daughters and granddaughters. In parts of the footage, he can be seen leaning in close and whispering in their ears. Biden has been the subject of speculation over his behavior with young girls for years. There are even more videos showing him engaging in this type of behavior, sniffing the hair of young and adult females and placing his hands on their shoulders. Some women have levied more severe accusations against Biden, claiming he engaged in improper behavior with them. In March, Tara Reade, who served as one of his staffers when he was a senator, publicly accused him of sexually assaulting her in 1993. Not Worth Coverage? It appears that the corporate media have decided to give Biden the Obama treatment with this story. If the proverbial shoe were on the other foot, and Twitter had flagged a video featuring Trump in the same manner, there is no doubt that it would be splashed across every left-leaning news site. In fact, the Fourth Estate has exhibited a remarkable lack of curiosity regarding these types of allegations against Biden, despite its supposed support of the #MeToo movement. But this story only confirms what most already know: The press is intent on getting Biden into the Oval Office, even if it means sacrificing journalistic principles. Read more from Jeff Charles.
Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here Los Angeles County Health Director Barbara Ferrer has come under fire for recent audio leaked to LA radio station KFI AM 60 in which she asserts that schools will likely not open up again until after the Presidential election on November 3. Her remarks have drawn criticism that Ferrer is leaning on politics rather than science in making her determination. In a moment of unguarded honesty while on a conference call, Ferrer opined that: “We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening K-12 schools at least until after the election in early November.” Conspiracy Theory or Calculated Political Move? On its face, this seems to reinforce the right-wing “conspiracy theory” that everything is about the election at present and may be used for political advantage – even our children’s education. Unfortunate statements like Ferrer’s reinforce the idea that intransigence on opening businesses, restaurants, churches, and public schools may have a calculated political component. Over the summer, President Trump, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) all endorsed American children going back to school in the Fall – a notion against which the teacher’s unions of California swiftly pushed back. Within a day or so, the unions voted to continue school closures in favor of remote learning. This decision flew in the face of all science on the subject. We know that there is not a single recorded case of a student infecting a teacher with COVID-19 anywhere in the world – even though students went back to school many months ago in Denmark, Norway, and Germany as well as nine other countries. The determination to bar students from in-person learning was also made with full knowledge that the seasonal flu is far more deadly than COVID for children. Internationally children have barely registered as infected or in any way sickened by the virus during the pandemic. For a group that genuflects to science, the left deliberately ignored science when it was politically convenient for them to do so. This also includes the comprehensive adoption of masks, which has devolved into self-reinforcing fascism requiring everyone to wear them outside the home – available science be damned. And the science on whether unprecedented quarantines of healthy people have worked to slow the spread of COVID-19 is still in dispute, but history suggests the evidence does not favor supporting arguments. None of that science appeared to register with a county professional for whom science is in the mission directive of her job. Ferrer was also overheard to say on the same conference call that: “When we just look at the timing of everything, it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now until we are done with the election.” Holding the Nation Hostage The social media critiques of Ferrer’s tacit admission that politics was privileged over science in deciding to keep schools closed were fast and furious. Outraged Twitter commenters called her remarks “disgusting” and “criminal” and evidence that we are being “held hostage” by a politically-motivated ruling class. Some wondered why Halloween, for example, might not have made just as convenient a watershed date for the reopening of schools – another trenchant observation that suggests politics at the heart of Ferrer’s remarks. Meanwhile, the LA County Department of Health was under the gun to clarify Ferrer’s statements, asserting that she was really only referring to the “time frame for expanded school re-openings.” Anytime the government body that has aegis over you has to run interference for your remarks, you know full well you stepped in it, and a hose is being applied to your shoes. LA Unified School District is the second-largest in the country behind New York City’s Board of Education. Seven hundred thirty-five thousand students in LA County are now nearly a month into distance learning – a bad dream from which we had hoped to awaken this Fall after a Spring rife with lockdown-learning. LA has at least made tentative plans to allow its most severely impacted special education students to revisit in-person learning, starting this week. But after LA County canceled Halloween trick-or-treating after having supported protests, then walked back the decision a day later, and given Barbara Ferrer’s apparently political metric – should Southern Californians have any confidence their elected officials know what they’re doing and are making science-based decisions free of political bias? ~ Read more from Pennel Bird.
Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here ActBlue, known in conservative circles for its overwhelming fundraising ability and dedicated commitment to turning Republican strongholds blue, has found itself the target of skepticism from election watchdogs. As reported by Fox News, the Take Back Action Fund revealed that nearly half of all 2019 donations to ActBlue came from donors reporting themselves as unemployed. At first glance, this sounds bizarre; why are so many unemployed and, therefore, financially insecure contributors donating in the first place? The details of the report indicate a more concerning pattern that has led prominent Republicans like Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) to accuse ActBlue of campaign contribution fraud and of potentially even facilitating foreign interference in the 2020 elections. Sen. Lindsey Graham “[M]ore than 4.7 million donations came from people who claimed they did not have an employer,” Action Fund’s John Pudner says.”Those 4.7 million donations totaled $346 million ActBlue raised and sent to liberal causes.” For 2020, more than 50% of ActBlue’s donors claim to be unemployed. ActBlue v. WinRed Political donors are required by law to list their employers when contributing money to political campaigns. It’s important to note that speculation about ActBlue’s fundraising cannot compare to Republican efforts. The Republican counterpart to ActBlue, WinRed, was found to have only around 4% of its donors reporting themselves as unemployed contributors compared to ActBlue’s 48.4% figure. This is more than a 40% difference between the two groups in the same timeframe when the unemployment rate was at 4% nationwide. Questionable fundraising efforts are not new in presidential elections. In 2008, The Washington Post reported that Barack Obama was receiving huge donations from untraceable prepaid credit cards to get around the legal limit for individual contributions. At the time, the paper even reported that the potential for donations to come in from foreign nationals through these methods was not out of the question, and the scenario in 2020 is no different. Accusations of Potential Foreign Interference Harsher responses to this latest news have accused ActBlue of potentially facilitating foreign interference in the upcoming elections. These accusations are still baseless and without evidence for the time being, though past precedent shows that the potential is there. It has already been confirmed from intelligence reports that Iran, China, and Russia are attempting to interfere in the 2020 election, and a vulnerability in an anonymous political donor network needs to be investigated if there is any semblance of civic responsibility within the FEC. In 2015, a bipartisan group of more than 100 legislators attempted to outlaw the use of unverified credit card systems to donate money to political campaigns. Many other political fundraising websites switched to payment systems that verify whether donations were coming from Americans, but ActBlue has yet to do so. Democrats are already arguing that stay-at-home mothers, students, and retirees are all considered unemployed when contributing to campaigns and that these distinctions explain the discrepancies in the report. Older Americans have long tended to vote Republican, which debunks the idea that Democrats have suddenly become the prime choice of retired American donors. Students do tend to support the Democratic Party more than the Republican party, but is it possible to suggest that the financial contributions from an age group that has lackluster voter turnout would make up the difference? Election Interference for Thee, Not For Me Since 2016, Democrats have baselessly accused Republicans of allowing foreign interference to take place. Democrats once looked inward and attempted to fix the hypocrisies within their party, but in today’s hyper-partisan climate, doing so would be akin to political suicide. On social media, Democrats are already playing defense for ActBlue, accusing Republicans of pushing conspiracy theories when their own favored media outlets have reported the same in the past. If reports of questionable donations to WinRed had surfaced, Democrats would instantly accuse Republicans of knowingly facilitating foreign interference. While political factions will disagree on what this report means for the upcoming elections, it’s clear that these loopholes need to be looked at and closed if the worst-case scenario turns out to be true. ~ Read more from Jose Backer.
Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here Editor’s Note – The Illegals Crime Report looks at crimes reported in the United States at the hands of those listed as illegal or undocumented. Man Sexually Assaults Toddler, Takes Pictures Ivan Velez Harnett County, NC A 23-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested after authorities discovered pictures of him sexually assaulting a one-year-old baby. The Department of Homeland Security alerted the Harnett County’s Sherrif’s Office that the pornographic images were being electronically distributed from Cameron, North Carolina. After conducting an investigation, they were able to trace the images back to Ivan Velez. Deputies have indicated that the victim is known to Velez but have not released the nature of the connection. The suspect has been charged with three counts of statutory rape and three counts of sexual exploitation of a one-year-old. He is currently being held on a $3 million bond at the Harnett County Detention Center. Couple Tortured 9-Year-Old Son to Death Meridian, ID When paramedics responded to a call at a home in Meridian, ID, they found 9-year-old Emrik Osuna unresponsive. They immediately started performing CPR and transported him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Emergency room doctors noticed apparent signs of long-term abuse and notified authorities who arrested Emirk’s father, Erik Emmanuel Osuna, 29, and stepmother Monique Osuna, 27. Erik Emmanuel Osuna During the couple’s arraignment, they were accused of using various items to punish the child, including a belt, dog leash, wooden spoon, and frying pan. The stepmother said she used the dog leash “because it was heavier than the belt.” The boy had bruises covering his body, especially on his legs, back, buttocks, and groin. The child was forced to do physical punishments as well, such as jumping jacks and wall sits. Monique said she put her stepson in a closet to sleep at night and frequently withheld food from him. Erick claimed his son had recently been getting only rice and water for nourishment. Both parents were charged with felony injury to a child and are being held at the Ada County Jail; Monique on a $2 million bail and Eric on an ICE detainer. North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE) August 2020 Each month, the North Carolina organization NCFIRE posts a list of sexual crimes committed against children by illegal immigrants. The numbers are staggering – especially considering that they’re just for one state. Take a look at the last four months’ statistics. May 2020 23 illegal immigrants were arrested. 70 charges of child rape and sexual abuse. June 2020 22 illegal immigrants were arrested. 238 charges of child rape and sexual abuse. July 2020 17 illegal immigrants were arrested. 63 charges of child rape and sexual abuse. August 2020 22 illegal immigrants were arrested. 107 charges of child rape and sexual abuse. This barely represents a drop in the bucket of just how many children are being sexually abused nationwide by people who are in the United States illegally. Sanctuary cities and states are only making it easier for predators to remain in the country as they prey on children. Tune in next week for more on the illegals crime report. ~ Read more from Kelli Ballard.
