As many as 450,000 illegal aliens could arrive along what the DHS calls the southwest border security and irregular migration zones of operation, which stretches from the southern U.S. border through Central America, in a 30-day period, according to one of the planning scenarios in the contingency plan. 

That could lead to “multiple surges” of 10,000 to 20,000 immigrants hitting different locations at the same time.

DHS, which already dealt with a record-level of illegal immigration during Biden’s first year in office, says ways to remove illegal immigrants “will be limited” apart from pandemic-era powers.

That will lead to using “broadscale release mechanisms” like issuing notices to appear in court, or even releasing illegal immigrants without a court notice, a practice that was not used before Biden took office.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), who represents a portion of a border state, told The Epoch Times in an email after reviewing the report that Biden and Mayorkas “have eviscerated our nation’s border security and immigration enforcement apparatus through various illegitimate executive orders and memorandums.

The U.S. government on April 5 immediately halted all shipments of a COVID-19 treatment to states and ordered health care providers not to use the drug.

The actions were taken because of the increasing prevalence of BA.2, a subvariant of Omicron, which is itself a variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, also known as SARS-CoV-2, the virus causes COVID-19.

Data so far indicate that the drug, a monoclonal antibody called sotrovimab, does not work against BA.2, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“We’ve all been vaccinated, but being from New York, we were all scared out of our wit’s end and didn’t know which end was up,” she said.

“But the government knew and they kept bringing the numbers for COVID up and up and created an emergency situation while suppressing therapeutics because they would not have been able to get EUA [Emergency Use Authorization] for COVID vaccines.”

Simoes was the last in his family to get the vaccine and didn’t have access to the information available now, Henrietta said.“Without the knowledge that there are therapeutics that actually work or potential risks of the vaccine, how can you make an informed decision?”

“If this could have been avoided by more critical thinking about what we’re really doing and what can we do in lieu of vaccines I think many peoples’ adverse effects could be eliminated,” she said.

Henrietta encouraged others to do their own research, be careful about what they put into their bodies and talk to physicians who understand the risks of COVID vaccines.

Bossie releases ‘Zuckerbucks’ film, as over 40k shown to have bypassed Wisc. voter ID rules in 2020

In “Rigged: The Zuckerberg Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump,” Bossie, president of conservative nonprofit Citizens United, explores how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg injected nearly $400 million into the 2020 presidential election through two left-leaning voter turnout nonprofits — the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation & Research (CEIR) — “with most of the funds funneled to government elections offices in critically important jurisdictions for Joe Biden — to finance get-out-the-vote efforts aimed at defeating” Trump, according press materials for the film.

On Monday, elections watchdog group Voter Reference Foundation (VRF) posted records obtained via the Wisconsin Elections Commission documenting the number of voters who circumvented state voter ID requirements in 2020 by claiming “indefinitely confined” status during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The dataset revealed “40,856 registrants who voted in the 2020 General Election with an Indefinitely Confined status and according to WEC, had not provided ID prior to doing so,” VRF reported.

Durham evidence creates timeline of relentless Democrat effort to sell Russia collusion hoax

As the trial for former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann draws closer, Special Counsel John Durham is painting a picture of a relentless effort by Democrat operatives to sell the Russia collusion narrative across the U.S. government from the FBI to the State Department.

Essentially, Hillary Clinton operatives flooded the zone in the summer and fall of 2016, hoping multiple Trump collusion allegations circulating inside the government agencies might prompt an investigation and media interest.

For the first time this week, Durham called it a “joint venture” and a conspiracy to shop unproven Trump dirt.

Whistleblower who revealed Hunter Biden’s laptop fled to Switzerland

The source who distributed Hunter Biden‘s laptop to congressmen and media has fled the US to Switzerland, saying he fears retaliation from the Biden administration.

Jack Maxey gave a copy of the hard drive from Hunter’s abandoned laptop in the spring of 2021.

He also gave copies and material from it to the Washington Post, New York Times, and Senator Chuck Grassley in his role as ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee – but he claims they all sat on it for months.

For the past two weeks, Maxey has been in hiding in Zurich, working with IT experts to dig out more data from the ‘laptop from hell’.

Maxey, a former co-host of ex-Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon’s podcast the War Room, claims he and his colleagues have found ‘450 gigabytes of deleted material’ including 80,000 images and videos and more than 120,000 archived emails.

He said he intends to post them all online in a searchable database in the coming weeks.

Disney Names Hillary Clinton Campaign Deputy Communications Director as Lead Spokesperson


The appointment comes after President Joe Biden tapped Schake last year to lead the coronavirus vaccination campaign at the Department of Health and Human Services, where she was counselor to secretary for strategic communications. She departed at the end of 2021.

Schake also co-founded the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which challenged the state’s ban on same sex marriage and was ultimately overturned with a Supreme Court decision in 2013.

Schake’s post at Disney follows weeks of scandal for the embattled company after its CEO, Bob Chapek, pledged to help get Florida’s parental rights in education law overturned, as Breitbart News reported.

Judge Orders Woman Must Pay Veritas’ Legal Costs | Lauren Windsor sought to “Take Down JOK for Good”

[ASHVILLE, NC – Apr. 5, 2022] Shirley Teter, a woman who sued Project Veritas for defamation because of a bombshell investigation into the political action group, Democracy Partners, has been ordered by a federal judge to pay Project Veritas’ legal expenses.

The order is a reversal of a previous decision by a court clerk who accepted Teter’s claim that she was “indigent” and therefore incapable of covering the legal costs Project Veritas incurred for defending itself against her defamation suit.

Democracy Partners was exposed by Project Veritas Action Fund for promoting violence at Trump rallies in 2016 and has been seeking revenge through litigation ever since.

Protesters plan rally at Disney’s California HQ: ‘They crossed a line in the sand’

Hold the Line founder Sean Feucht is speaking out as he plans a rally outside Disney‘s California headquarters in protest of what many critics call the corporation’s “woke” agenda. 

“They’re going to feel this in their earnings reports, and they’re also they’re going to feel this as people cancel their subscription as they raise their voice,” Feucht told co-host Ainsley Earhardt. “It always starts small… but I feel like there’s a snowball that’s happening.”

“Most of the employees… they’re good,” Feucht said. “They’re Christians, they love America, and they just want to create safe content for children, and they see that their corporations being hijacked by a bunch of woke… crazy people that are trying to indoctrinate kids with this crazy sexualization.”

In a joint statement, Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison recognized that while Locke’s death was a “tragedy” and he was not the subject of the search warrants, “there is insufficient admissible evidence to file criminal charges in this case.” 

“Specifically, the State would be unable to disprove beyond a reasonable doubt any of the elements of Minnesota’s use-of-deadly-force statute that authorizes the use of force by Officer Hanneman,” the statement said.

“Nor would the State be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt a criminal charge against any other officer involved in the decision-making that led to the death of Amir Locke.”

Missouri AG Eric Schmitt to Newsmax: We’re About to See a ‘Tidal Wave of Illegal Immigration’

During an appearance on Newsmax’s “National Report,” Schmitt discussed the lawsuit that he and the attorneys general of Louisiana and Arizona recently filed to prevent the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from rescinding the public health directive.

“I think every state’s a border state now because the drugs that come across the border illegally, the human trafficking that comes across illegally, the criminals that come across illegally — they don’t just stop in El Paso,” the Republican attorney general said. “They end up in places like Missouri, Ohio, and Louisiana. So, I think it’s important for every state to stand up now and push back against this disastrous border policy.”

“Missouri and Texas have filed a lawsuit to finish President Trump’s border wall,” he said.

There are reportedly thousands of migrants waiting in Mexico for Title 42 to be repealed so they can illegally cross the border.

Simple question ‘a child could answer’ leaves Department of Health Secretary ‘dumbfounded’

A simple question asked by Liberal Senator Alex Antic, which a “child could answer”, left Secretary of the Department of Health Brendan Murphy dumbfounded, according to Sky News host Rita Panahi.

Following Mr Antic’s question about the definition of a woman, the room of health bureaucrats fell silent before refusing to answer.

“These people have no qualms about imposing draconian restrictions like closing Australia’s borders, even to Australian citizens, to prevent the spread of a virus, but they are too scared to tell you what a woman is,” Ms Panahi said.

“No longer can we pretend that the influence of this insidious radical gender theory is only evident in the UK and US.

“It has taken hold right here in Australia to such an extent that senior health bureaucrats are too terrified to answer that simple question, what is a woman.”

Chip Roy Calls Out Black Lives Matter Organization Controversies During House Hearing

At Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) spoke about the Black Lives Matter organization.

It’s time to AUDIT big banks & the Fed. Here’s why.

The Biden administration will continue to use the war in Ukraine and the COVID pandemic as EXCUSES for inflation and for why YOUR prices continue to go up.

But there’s far more to the story.

In this clip, Glenn explains how the Federal Reserve paid over a TRILLION dollars during the COVID stock market crash to not only keep big banks afloat, but to ensure some of their all-time profit highs as well.

The banks have been LYING to us. So maybe Ron Paul was right all along: it’s well past time we AUDIT them AND the Fed.

Oklahoma Legislature Passes Near-Total Abortion Ban

The Oklahoma House voted 70-14 to pass SB 612, sending it to Gov. Kevin Stitt (R), who has previously vowed to sign “every piece of pro-life legislation” that comes across his desk, the New York Times reported.

The bill bans all abortions “except to save the life of a pregnant woman in a medical emergency.”

The bill defines a medical emergency as “a pregnant woman whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, physical illness or physical injury including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself.”

The law would also make performing an abortion a “felony punishable by $100,000,” imprisonment for up to 10 years, or both, according to the bill’s text.

Republican state Rep. Jim Olsen emphasized that “the penalties are for the doctor, not for the woman.” If Stitt signs the bill, the law will take effect on August 26, the Senate clerk’s office told the Times.

HHS Secretary Becerra refuses to admit partial-birth abortions are illegal in House testimony

Becerra appeared before the House Committee on Education and Labor to discuss the policy priorities of his department. Banks pressed Becerra on whether his department would aggressively enforce the federal ban on partial-birth abortions, but the secretary refused to acknowledge the ban.

“Do you concede that partial-birth abortion, as defined in 18 U.S. code, section 1531, is illegal and punishable by fine, imprisonment or both?” Banks asked.

Becerra has a history of denying that the U.S. ban on partial birth abortions exists. He claimed during a 2021 hearing before the same committee that “there is no law that deals specifically with the term “partial-birth abortion.”

Voters elected Samantha Kerkman on April 5th as the county executive.

The race was described as nonpartisan, but Kerkman had the backing of Republicans and serves as a Republican state representative. Her opponent, Rebecca Matoska-Mentink, is a Democrat and serves as the Clerk of Courts.

The Associated Press reported Kerkman is the first Republican ever to hold the officially nonpartisan office, though Fox News has not independently confirmed the report.

On Ukraine, Ukrainians, and the US role in the war — with Tucker Carlson

World News:


How can an Israeli government ever be strong and last when it has the Right, the far, far-Left, and Arab terrorists on the same “team?”

Well, as many predicted, it was just a matter of time until it would begin to unravel.

The demise has begun. After Idit Silman quit the government as part of Yamina’s party, PM Naftali Bennett’s party, PM Bennett has now lost his majority vote.

There are strong rumors that others may quite as well as Bennett now lacks the 61 member majority to stay in power.

This might ultimately result in new elections. Again. Silman has been offered a position by Likud in a potential next government.

A group of “unidentified armed men” kidnaped Sr. Suellen Tennyson of the Marianites of Holy Cross congregation overnight from a parish in Yalgo between April 4 and 5 and brought her to an unknown location, the archdiocese said, citing Bishop Theophile Nare of the Kaya Diocese.

The kidnapers vandalized the convent where Tennyson lived with other religious women, according to the archdiocese.

The State Department told Fox News Digital in a statement that it is “aware of reports of a U.S. citizen missing in Burkina Faso.”

“U.S. Embassy Ouagadougou is working diligently with local authorities and is monitoring the situation. We stand ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance,” the agency said.

Nolte: Yes, Democrats Really Do Want to Groom Your Children

What kind of country are we living in where we even have to pass a bill that outlaws sexualizing kids aged four to eight in the classroom?

What kind of country are we living in where Florida teachers are angry that they can’t discuss their personal lives with your little kids, much less discuss sex?

What kind of country are we living in where the Walt Disney Co., a company built on the idea of preserving the innocence of children and teaching them lessons about honesty, hard work, and true love, is now openly bragging about feeding the little kids sexual propaganda?

Of course, this is grooming.

What else would you call it?
