US: Documents reveal feds paid news outlets to praise COVID vaccines

Only recently has it been revealed that one of the “vaccines” for COVID-19, pushed by the federal government and pharmaceutical industry on Americans, many unwillingly, over the past two years can cause acute kidney injury, acute flaccid myelitis, anti-sperm antibody positive, brain stem embolism, brain stem thrombosis, cardiac arrest, cardiac failure and cardiogenic shock.

And now it has been revealed that while Americans were facing those life-and-death threats, the federal government was paying news outlets $1 billion to promote the experimental shots.

The Blaze reported through a Freedom of Information Act procedure, it found that the government purchased advertising from ABC, CBS and NBC as well as cable news stations Fox News, CNN and MSNBC, “legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations.”

Chairman Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, which has been active in fighting COVID-19 shot requirements, said, “People have been injured and died as a result of the most extensive propaganda campaign in U.S. history and it was paid for with our taxpayer dollars.

Chad Hummel, an attorney from Rochester, New York, was acquitted of criminal trespassing charges last week after a four-hour bench trial before Judge Joseph J. Valentino, the Daily Wire reports.

He faced up to 90 days in jail and professional licensing consequences after he was arrested on May 1, 2021, after refusing to wear a face covering at his son’s high school baseball game, even though he and his wife were seated at least 150 feet away from anyone else in attendance.

In previous statements to the Daily Wire, Hummel had demanded a public apology from the school district and the resignations of several officials, including the superintendent. But it appears he’s changed his mind since being acquitted of the criminal charges.

The Main Directorate of Intelligence of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense (GUR) first revealed the death of Ukrainian intelligence operative Denis Kireyev in a Facebook post on March 5. Two other Ukrainian intelligence operatives, Oleksiy Dolya and Valeriy Chibineyev, were also killed over the weekend, the post stated.

Journalist Vladislav Davidzon tweeted that Kireyev was reportedly killed by the Ukrainian SBU intel service while resisting arrest after being suspected of treason by the Ukrainians.

The New Voice of Ukraine reported that Kireyev was secretly holding phone calls with Russia.

During a speech over the weekend, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy praised Ukrainian fighters pushing back on the Russian invasion for “not giving up” and said there is “no stopping the resistance.”

The base went into lockdown following reports that two individuals had driven a vehicle through a security checkpoint at the Main Gate around 9 p.m., a press release by Joint Base Andrews stated.

Press pool reports said that Harris boarded Marine Two at 8:51 pm and taxied for several minutes before taking off.

The individuals fled the vehicle on foot after the 316th Security Forces Group deployed barriers and stopped the vehicle. One of the suspects was arrested.

One of the teachers took the 5-year-old boy into a smaller “cool down” room, and that’s where the student attacked her, WTVJ added, citing the report.

WPLG said the student used his fists and feet to hit his teacher, according to the report, adding that the incident took place just after 10 a.m. Wednesday.

World: Ukraine war: Chernobyl workers’ 12-day ordeal under Russian guard


Another 200 Ukrainian guards, who’d been in charge of security at the time of the assault, also remain trapped.

Workers continue to go about their duties and the atmosphere is said to be calm, but the BBC has been told that the conditions inside are difficult, with food and medicine limited.

There are also growing concerns that stress could be impacting their ability to safely carry out their duties at the nuclear site.

Russian soldiers are now inside the 32km (19 mile) Chernobyl exclusion zone and have surrounded the perimeter of the plant.

Russia says it has secured the site jointly with the Ukrainian national guard, but Ukraine disputes this and says Russian troops have full control.

US: Durham Report | Full Measure

Coming up on three years ago, U.S. Attorney John Durham was assigned to look into possible criminal mischief by the FBI and others surrounding the probe of Donald Trump as a supposed Russian spy.

A recent court filing says former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman used access to computer data to try to build a Trump-Russia collusion narrative that proved false.

He’s already charged with lying to the FBI. He says he’s not guilty.

Today, we speak with Congressman Darrell Issa, a top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, about the long-running investigation.

US: January 6 Defendant Being Illegally Detained – Locked up More Than 80 Days With No Indictment

Denney’s case involves two distinct, major screwups. The first is that he was not afforded a Preliminary Hearing, to which he is entitled under the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and the Constitution.

The second is that he has not been indicted by a grand jury within 30 days of his arrest, as required by the federal Speedy Trial Act.

Consequently, Denney’s detention has been unlawful since at least late January 2022.

On March 2, Denney’s lawyer filed a motion demanding Denny’s release. He argued that there was a clear violation in Denny’s case of Rule 5.1 – the requirement to conduct a Preliminary Hearing – which meant no judge had ever found probable cause to support the charges. He also pointed out that Denney had not yet been indicted.

The high court was ruling in the case of a man a lower court classified as a career criminal after counting the man’s burglary of 10 different public storage units on a single evening as 10 separate offenses. The high court said unanimously Monday that was an error.

The man’s 10 burglary convictions should have been treated as one event rather than separate crimes when considering whether he qualified for a stiffened sentence under the federal Armed Career Criminal Act, the justices concluded.

Without the stronger sentence, the man’s recommended sentence would have been approximately two years, but he was instead sentenced to nearly 16.

“Convictions arising from a single criminal episode … can count only once under ACCA,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote.

World, Commentary: Douglas Murray reveals Kamala Harris’s ‘covert’ border crisis ‘cover-up’

In an “extraordinary attempt” to fool the American people, the Biden-Harris administration has been “covertly” distributing illegal migrants around the United States under the cover of night, according to author Douglas Murray.

Mr Murray claimed the Biden-Harris administration has allowed up to 2 million illegal migrants to cross into the United States from over the southern border.

“An extraordinary attempt to basically fool the American people, at least mislead them about the nature of this crisis,” he said.

“This was a crisis that Kamala Harris was asked to take control of, and she’s failed to.”

US Politics: Levin: What kind of fool does this?

Mark Levin blasts Biden, whom he calls a ‘disgrace and a disaster,’ for ill-considered foreign policy positions.


While speaking to audience members on Saturday at gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s “Rock and Roll Rodeo Rally” in Morristown, Arizona, Lindell claimed Pennsylvania turned in its electors despite having “more votes than voters.”

“In Pennsylvania, they have a law, you can’t have more votes than voters, or you can’t turn in your electors. But they turned their electors in anyways,” said Lindell.

Lindell told RSBN on Saturday that he was filing a class-action lawsuit to get rid of the “defective” voting machines he claims helped rig the election.

Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf is appealing the court’s decision, and his allies will provide oral arguments to the state’s liberal Supreme Court on March 8.

In one tweet from November 2021, Ryder said, “Thinking about making an animated video of me killing @RepDustyJohnson ‘s family, and then saying it was just a joke.”

In another tweet on the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, Ryder told Johnson, “It’s too bad the Trump rioters that you continue to support didn’t get you that day.”

In another tweet, from July 2021, Ryder joked (apparently) about masturbating to a picture of South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R).

The South Dakota Democratic Party even released an announcement initially standing by Ryder.

US, Politics: White House Rejects Idea of Boosting Domestic Oil Production to Lower Gas Prices


The White House on Sunday rejected the argument that increasing domestic oil production would help lower gas prices, as the cost of oil moves toward record highs.

President Joe Biden’s administration is exploring diplomatic shifts with oil producing countries including Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Iran, as Russia’s latest Ukrainian offensive has disrupted oil markets.

But Psaki argued the only way to truly be free from high gas prices was to stop using oil.

“The only way to protect US over the long term is to become energy independent,” she wrote, pointing to Biden’s efforts on subsidizing wind and solar energy.

US: Seattle teachers union demands forced masking until May to ensure ‘sense of normalcy’

Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, has lifted his state’s indoor mask mandate beginning March 11, including in schools, and King County will follow suit. Seattle Public Schools, however, announced in a recent statement that it would keep its mask mandate for students “until further notice.”

The district said it must negotiate with the Seattle Education Association (SEA) teachers union, “as required by the current collective bargaining agreement, to arrive at a mutually agreeable position regarding any permanent change to mask use requirements throughout the district.”

SEA President Jennifer Matter said the mask mandate shouldn’t be lifted until at least May 1, two weeks after students return from spring break.

National Guard Lt. Col. Astakhov Dmitry Mikhailovich, who was captured along with two other soldiers, said he had been told they were being sent to help Ukraine because it was “dominated by a fascist regime” and that “nationalists and Nazis had seized power.”

The captive begged for “mercy” from Ukrainians and said he was ready to “go to jail” for taking part in the brutal offensive.

“I feel shame that we came to this country,” the colonel said. “I don’t know why we were doing it. We knew very little. We brought sorrow to this land.”
