Do they know something we don’t? US stocks up on $300m worth of radiation sickness drug

The US has stocked up on radiation sickness drugs just weeks after Vladimir Putin threatened to use nuclear weapons against the West.

Officials said the deal — worth $290million — was ‘part of ongoing work’ and ‘has not been accelerated’ by the Kremlin leader’s escalating rhetoric.  

But the US Health and Human Services (HHS) said the drug order was ‘part of ongoing work’ and ‘has not been accelerated’ by Putin’s warning.

However, the timing will likely raise questions given that this is the first time the US Government has bought Nplate.

It is unclear how many doses the order covers, but the drug normally fetches between $1,000 and $2,500 per dose.

The FBI Has A Massive Sexual Misconduct Problem, Whistleblowers Reveal

Hundreds of FBI employees avoided discipline for sexual misconduct by retiring or resigning amid investigations from 2004 to 2020, according to Department of Justice records obtained by Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley.

Whistleblower documents revealed that 665 FBI employees, including 45 senior executives, left their jobs following investigations into alleged sexual misconduct before they could be disciplined, according to Grassley. Higher ranking officials were subjected to less severe penalties than other staff, according to the documents.

“These two documents show a systemic failure within the Justice Department and FBI to protect female employees from sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in the workplace and a failure to sufficiently punish employees for that same misconduct,” Grassley wrote in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray. 

Fauci Greenlit Paper From Wuhan-Affiliated Group While Downplaying Lab Leak Theory

A review of the scientific journal PNAS shows Fauci was assigned to edit the paper, which detailed efforts to collect Nipah virus from wild bats in Bangladesh, in January 2020. The paper was funded by several grants from the Fauci-helmed National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and authored by members of the EcoHealth Alliance, including the group’s president, Peter Daszak. Before the pandemic, Daszak and the Alliance funneled $600,000 in taxpayer funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct risky experiments on bat coronaviruses.

Fauci’s involvement in editing the paper ran “concurrent with the campaigns organized by Fauci and Daszak to push the false narrative that science shows SARS-CoV2 entered humans through natural spillover,” Rutgers University professor of chemical biology Richard Ebright told the Washington Free Beacon.

As Fauci edited the EcoHealth paper, he worked to quash debate on the hypothesis that the group’s taxpayer-funded work with the Wuhan lab could have been connected to the COVID-19 outbreak. Emails show that experts warned Fauci during the early stages of the pandemic to take the theory seriously. Daszak thanked Fauci in an April 2020 email for his efforts to dispel “myths” surrounding EcoHealth and the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Fauci approved the EcoHealth paper for publication in September 2020.

“We are taking steps to streamline and size our onshore wind business for market realities to position us for future success,” a GE Renewable Energy spokesperson told FOX Business. “These are difficult decisions, which do not reflect on our employees’ dedication and hard work but are needed to ensure the business can compete and improve profitability over time.”

The spokesperson added that the company is also reviewing its onshore wind footprint in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. 

As of the end of 2021, GE’s Renewable Energy business had roughly 38,000 employees.

The Justice Department, citing court documents, said 55-year-old Quin Ngoc Rudin – a convicted felon – engaged in a conspiracy to commit two fraud schemes while on supervised release using his tax preparation business in the Los Angeles area. 

Rudin was the secretary, director and chief financial officer of Mana Tax Services.

The DOJ said Rudin first conspired with his 59-year-old brother, Thanh Rudin, 46-year-old Seir Havana and others to prepare and file a series of false income tax returns on behalf of at least nine professional athletes. 

The returns reported fictitious business and personal losses to generate refunds the athletes were not entitled to receive. 

In addition, he filed amended tax returns for most of the athletes for prior years to correct what he falsely characterized as “errors” made by their previous accountants.

Christopher Geldart, 53, has been charged with assault after allegedly grabbing the neck of Dustin Woodward, a trainer at the Gold’s Gym, during an altercation in the parking lot on Oct. 1.

According to Arlington Police, an argument ensued after Geldart allegedly opened his car door, hitting the parked car of Woodward’s girlfriend. Geldart, appointed by Bowser to serve as Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice on January 28, 2021, has been placed on leave pending an investigation.

When FOX 5 DC reporter Sierra Fox attempted to show the video of the incident to Bowser on camera, the D.C. mayor balked.

Pine Island was one of two major barrier islands to be cut off from mainland Florida after Hurricane Ian destroyed causeways and bridges in the area. Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis unveiled drone footage showings trucks crossing over the repaired bridge on Thursday.

“Construction on the Pine Island bridge has been completed today – just three days after construction began,” DeSantis wrote. “Happy to have the state step in and help get our Pine Island residents back on their feet.”

Repair efforts are continuing on the Sanibel Causeway, which connects Sanibel Island to mainland Florida.

DeSantis ordered the Florida Department of Transportation to prioritize repairing access to barrier islands on Wednesday. The FDOT expects repairs to the Sanibel Causeway to be completed by the end of October.

Federal agents have evidence to charge Hunter Biden: report

Federal agents investigating Hunter Biden believe they have gathered enough evidence to charge the first son with tax crimes as well as a false statement related to a gun purchase, according to a new report.

The final decision on whether to charge the 52-year-old will be made by Delaware US attorney David Weiss, who was appointed to his current post by former President Donald Trump.

The Washington Post, citing people familiar with the investigation, reported that agents had determined months ago that they had assembled a viable criminal case against Hunter Biden. The newspaper reported that the investigation, which started by focusing on Hunter’s overseas business dealings, has shifted to whether he reported all his income from overseas transactions — as well as whether he lied about his history of substance abuse on a firearm purchase form in 2018.

A CBP Air and Marine Operations Coastal Interceptor Vessel crew assigned to Brownsville near the Texas-Mexico border responded to a report from Fort Brown Station Border Patrol agents regarding a suspected human smuggling boat in South Bay.

The AMO crew and a U.S. Coast Guard vessel located the boat and noticed it was taking on water. The AMO crew placed the captain of the boat under arrest and rescued four migrants.

With one month to go in the official fiscal year reports, AMO agents carried out 425 rescue operations. This compares to 373 last year, 184 in FY 2020, and 377 in FY 2019.

In addition, AMO’s maritime and airborne operations led to the seizure of 257,000 pounds of narcotics. Agents participated in the seizure of 170,000 pounds of cocaine, 7,460 pounds of methamphetamine, 1,149 pounds of fentanyl, 381 pounds of heroin, and 77,951 pounds of marijuana, the report indicates.

Federal Appeals Court Deals Blow to Biden Administration in DACA Case

The Fifth Circuit court held that DACA was unlawfully enacted because it did not undergo the notice and comment procedure required by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).

“DACA created a detailed, streamlined process for granting enormously significant, predefined benefits to over 800,000 people,” Fifth Circuit Chief Judge Priscilla Richman wrote. “This constitutes a substantive rule. Because DACA did not undergo notice and comment, it violates the procedural requirements of the APA.”

Although the Fifth Circuit determined DACA was unlawful, the three-judge panel remanded the case back to U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s court in light of a recently enacted Biden administration regulation.

Biden’s ARP funds went to transgender studio that teaches exercises to deal with ‘White people’s bulls—‘

COVID-19 relief funds from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan (ARP) went to a transgender dance studio in San Francisco that teaches breathing exercises to people of color who are sick of “White people’s bulls—” and “founding father f—boys,” among other activities.

According to NEA records, a $150,000 ARP grant was awarded to “Fresh Meat Productions (aka Sean Dorsey Dance)” in January “to support personnel expenses in response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Fresh Meat Productions, according to the organization’s website, was founded in 2002 by transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey.

One of the videos, conducted by J Mase III, a self-described “Black/Trans/queer poet” and the author of the book, “White Folks Be Trippin,'” includes a breathing exercise meant for “Black, Brown and Indigenous folks” who “still have to deal with White people’s bulls—.”

Biden DOJ indicts 11 pro-life activists for blocking access to abortion clinic

The activists, according to the indictment, organized an event blockading an abortion clinic near Nashville earlier this year. The DOJ alleges the group physically prevented both employees of the clinic and at least one would-be patient from entering the building in early March. The federal FACE Act prohibits demonstrators from blocking access to abortion clinics.

Those charged with conspiracy face up to 11 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Those charged with FACE Act violations face up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

While President Biden’s DOJ has aggressively prosecuted pro-life activists, it has made no arrests in the at least 17 incidents of vandalism and arson against pro-life clinics committed by the radical abortion group “Jane’s Revenge.”

BEWARE: The DOJ is now an ENFORCEMENT ARM for Democrats

The FBI recently charged multiple participants of a peaceful protest at an abortion facility in Tennessee. The pro-lifers originally were given a misdemeanor by local police…but that drastically escalated when the FBI got a hold of the story.

Glenn explains how this story — plus other recent examples — show that the DOJ cannot be trusted.

The DOJ has ‘become an enforcement arm of the Democratic Party,’ Glenn says, and there WILL be more arrests.

But we must continue to peacefully stand. Because not only are there more people on our side, Glenn says, but even the ‘heavens are engaged’ as well.

Is the U.S. Blood Supply Tainted?

As of mid-September, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — notorious for capturing only a minuscule proportion of adverse events — had received notification of more than 43,000 blood clotting disorders, including acute-onset problems in young children.

Clotting disorders make the blood clot “too easily,” generating clots that can travel through the bloodstream and increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes, among other potential complications.

In one of the most alarming studies, published in August in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research, Italian surgeons described atypical clumping of red blood cells and the presence of “extraordinarily anomalous structures and substances” of “various shapes and sizes of unclear origin” in over 94% of symptomatic, COVID-19-vaccinated individuals whose blood they examined.

Pointing to other studies that found foreign materials in the blood of COVID-19 vaccine recipients and in COVID-19 vaccine vials — materials “that the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and the many promoters of the experimental injections claimed were not in them at all” — the Italian authors concluded the vaccine-induced blood alterations were “likely … to be involved in producing the coagulation disorders commonly reported after anti-COVID injections.”

7.7% of COVID injected had to seek medical care, V-safe data obtained by ICAN shows

V-safe is a new smartphone-based CDC program that allows users to register after getting a COVID19 vaccine and provide health check-ins.

The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) wanted to obtain this data. So, it deployed its legal team, headed by Aaron Siri, to obtain the v-safe data.

After suing the CDC twice, and following months of legal wrangling, the CDC finally capitulated, resulting in a court order that required it to produce this data. The first batch of data, containing 144 million rows of health entries by v-safe users, has now been obtained by ICAN and you can search it using a user-friendly interface that ICAN worked around the clock to create.

Jesus Salgado, 48, was taken into custody on Tuesday as a person of interest in the kidnapping of a Merced County family, including an 8-month-old baby, authorities said

Four members of a San Joaquin Valley family, including an 8-month-old child, who had been missing since Monday after being kidnapped were found dead Wednesday evening, according to the Merced County authorities.

The bodies were found by a farmworker in an “extremely rural” area shortly after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, said Merced County Sheriff Vernon Warnke in a news conference near the scene. He said the bodies were located relatively close together.

A person of interest in the kidnapping was taken into custody on Tuesday, officials said. Jesus Salgado, 48, attempted suicide “prior to law enforcement involvement,” sheriff’s officials said, and was in critical condition as of Wednesday.

“We don’t know motivation yet. We are going to determine… that and the investigation now is in a pursuit of full conviction,” Warnke said.

Sarah Palin: ‘My First Agenda Item Will Be Making Sure We Open Up ANWR’ to End ‘Fake Energy Crisis’

Palin called for increasing energy and natural resource development in ANWR while highlighting the synthetic nature of rising energy costs driven by government policies marketed by the Biden administration as “environmental” measures.

“[We must] make sure that the other congressmen understand how important it is that we really ramp up domestic energy production,” Palin stated. “Up here in Alaska, we’re the Fort Knox of America. We have the minerals. We have the oil and the gas. We have the rare earth [minerals]. We have all these natural resources of energy, and we should be turning on a spigot and utilizing them, exploiting them for good, for responsible use of mankind.”

Palin continued, “Instead, there’s this fake energy crisis going on. The reason we have an energy crisis [is that] Biden made it. He’s overseas, hat in hand, asking for dirty, dangerous sources of oil — from enemies, even — to be produced for us.”

DC Council advances bill for allowing noncitizens to vote

The Washington, D.C. city council voted 12-1 to advance a bill that if passed and signed into law would allow noncitizens to vote in local elections.

The bill, introduced by council member Charles Allen, says that if a noncitizen is otherwise qualified to vote, they can do so in local elections so long as they have resided in Washington, D.C., for at least 30 days.

Allen went on to say that D.C. already allows those who do not pay taxes to vote, those without a fixed residence, those who are incarcerated, college students who hail from “far-away states,” and those who cannot read to vote.

Court Dismisses Syrian Refugee Charged With Beating Young Daughter

“A Nova Scotia court ruled it cannot intervene in the child protection case of a teenage Syrian refugee whose father allegedly beat her, breaking her nose, when he learned she had been texting a boy.”

“The family came to Canada in 2016 under a refugee resettlement program.”

And the reason for the dismissal is? From all accounts, the Syrian refugee is off-the-hook due to controversy regarding the age of his child. If she was under the age of sixteen at the time of the assault, the case would not have been dismissed. In other words, ambiguity over the victim’s age has freed the father from conviction.

Both parents supported the minister’s argument that the child was born in 2005, making her 16 at the time of the attack.”

North Korea flies 12 warplanes near South Korean border, prompting Air Force scramble

The South Korean military says it detected eight fighter jets and four bombers in the North Korean formation. South Korea’s flight of 30 warplanes did not engage the sortie, however, and only guarded the country’s airspace.

The flight is only the latest aggression to come from Kim Jong Un’s regime, which has launched numerous ballistic missiles in recent weeks.

North Korea fired a pair of short-range missiles early Thursday in further response to joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korean militaries. The U.S. Navy has deployed the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier to the region to participate in exercises.

The drills have not been without mishaps, however, as a South Korean ballistic missile malfunctioned and exploded on the ground on Wednesday.

A former police officer has allegedly terrorized a day care center in Thailand, killing at least 37 people, including himself.

According to reports, former Sergeant Panya Kamrap, 34, entered the the Child Development Center in Nong Bua Lamphu province around noon, perhaps searching for his 2-year-old stepson, who was often placed in care there, but who was not there that day. However, rather than leaving, Kamrap immediately began attacking teachers and children, witnesses said.

“I suddenly heard the sound, just sounded like firecrackers. So I looked back [and] the two staffs just collapsed on the floor,” recalled one unidentified employee.

“Then he pulled another gun from his waist,” the person added. “…I didn’t expect he would also kill the kids.”

Mystery of abandoned wartime submarine reveals dark hidden secrets | 60 Minutes Australia

It’s not often you get to make history, but we’ve just solved one of the great Australian mystery stories.

More than 60 years ago, three Japanese midget subs made a daring wartime raid on Sydney – two were captured but the third disappeared, seemingly forever.

Over the years, there’s been many a false start, many a hoax, many a diver claiming to have found the missing sub. But now it’s finally been discovered by a bunch of knockabout scuba divers who took Liam along on their great adventure.

What you’re about to see is an extraordinary story – a story of plenty of luck and lots of daring – a great chapter in our history unfolding just a few kilometres off Sydney’s northern beaches.
