In The NEWS:
Texas couple captured, tortured, dismembered in grisly Mexico murder
The New York Post reported that the remains of Julissa Ramirez and Nohemi Medina Martinez were found stuffed in garbage bags lying outside Ciudad Juárez, adding two more to the tally of murdered women across the dangerous Mexican city.
The couple, according to the report, were believed to be in their late twenties and lived in nearby El Paso. They were in the Chihuahua area visiting family.
Martinez and Ramirez leave behind three children.
Meaww reported that the Chihuahua state attorney general’s office has opened an investigation into the case and that Gov. Maru Campos has vowed to catch the culprits responsible for the women’s deaths.
‘Scheduled for EXECUTION’: Unvaxxed COVID patient flown to Texas after being denied life-saving care in Minnesota
Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined “The Glenn Beck Program” Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital’s decision to turn off Scott’s life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.
“It was absolutely stunning,” Holsten told Glenn. “[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day.”
According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the “position” to keep Scott alive “is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law.
As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner’s ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan.”
London-bound flight TURNS BACK because passenger wouldn’t wear a mask
The airline called Miami police and officers escorted a woman off the plane at Miami International Airport Wednesday evening without incident.
A spokesperson for the Miami-Dade Police Department said American Airlines staff dealt ‘administratively’ with the passenger.
The passenger, a woman in her 40s, was not arrested. It was unclear if she was British or American. She was put on American Airline’s internal no-fly list pending further investigation.
Airlines reported nearly 6,000 incidents involving unruly passengers last year and 151 in the first two weeks of this year, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Most of them involved passengers who refused to wear masks.
SUPREME COURT HEARS CASE ON BOSTON’S REFUSAL TO RAISE THE CHRISTIAN FLAG
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Shurtleff v. Boston on Tuesday, a case on religious freedom. The Supreme Court will decide whether the city of Boston violated the First Amendment by refusing a request from a private organization to raise the Christian flag in front of city hall.
While at first glance this would not appear to be a major issue, it became one when the city of Boston was exposed for appearing to unfairly discriminate against the Christian flag.
For the past 12 years, Boston Property Management Department Commissioner Gregory Rooney has approved 284 flag-raising events and only denied one request.
Reportedly, the only flag that was denied during that time was the Christian flag.
Commentary: Preachers Imprisoned? New God-Defying Law to Potentially Ban Select Sermons
That’s why, according to Fox News, more than 4,000 preachers in North America devoted their sermons Sunday to the perfidious influence that Bill C-4 might have on the freedom of religion.
For instance, take a religious figure who says, based on the tenets of his or her respective holy texts, that sex should be reserved for a monogamous married couple that consists of a man and a woman.
“The teaching and the propagation of those faiths, if it comes into contact with an LGBTQ person, regardless of whether that LGBTQ person is seeking that counseling or not, the propagation and teaching and dissemination of those faiths run the risk of being classified as conversion therapy,” Moore said.
That’s why thousands of Christian pastors in North America — as part of a movement organized by Liberty Coalition Canada and prominent California pastor John MacArthur — said they were willing to protest Bill C-4 in their sermons.
MacArthur said the bill was part of a culture normalizing sexual immorality and cracking down on those who speak up for traditional biblical values.

CDC Reveals Natural Immunity Acquired Through Previous Infection of COVID-19 Provides More Protection than Vaccines
According to the article, the Brownstone Institute for Social and Economic Research published a list of 91 different clinical research studies which each conclude that naturally acquired immunity is at the very least equal to, but in many cases vastly superior, to the experimental mRNA vaccines that are currently available.
Most notably, of the almost 1,400 “previously infected subjects” who had never received a Covid-19 vaccine, not a single one was reinfected with the virus. The data was so clear that researchers concluded vaccination is “unlikely to benefit” individuals with natural immunity.
Even researchers from the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), as the Gateway Pundit previously reported, said that fully vaccinated individuals who experience a breakthrough Covid-19 infection will develop “super-immunity” from the virus.
Sharyl Attkisson: The Term ‘Anti-Vaxxer’ a Very Effective Propaganda Tool
“Definitions now are being rewritten and changed in real-time to fit…whatever the establishment wants people to think,” says five-time Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson.
The term “anti-vaxxine” is now used to describe anybody who is opposed to vaccine mandates. In this episode, we discuss how propagandists have taken control of the information landscape.
FBI raids home, office of Democratic Texas congressman, a vocal critic of Biden
Cuellar hasn’t been shy about criticizing the Biden administration or asking it for help.
He’s called on President Joe Biden to halt his administration’s open border policies, which Cuellar argues has burdened local law enforcement, endangered local communities, led to increased crime, drug and human trafficking, cartel and gang violence, and the spread of the coronavirus.
Last year, Laredo’s Democratic mayor sued the Biden administration for busing illegal immigrants from other areas of the border to Laredo, and straining its local health-care resources.
Laredo officials learned after the fact that a large percentage of those being bused in were sick with the coronavirus.
Cuellar also individually and as a leader of a Democratic congressional delegation called on the president to restore Medicaid funding to Texas, which the administration halted last year.
Halting the funding has hurt some of the poorest communities in Texas, he and the delegation argued. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued over the halted funding, which has yet to be restored.

Follow the Money…COVID Money That Is
The U.S. Government has misplaced billions of dollars of COVID stimulus money, and nobody seems concerned.
Worse still, some think we need another round of stimulus checks sent to Americans to help with the effects of OMICRON. By the way, the government has no money of its own. They have our money.
Let’s look at some real numbers reported by the Treasury Department. We hope we can trust their math.
On the surface, that means $1.7 Trillion is already approved by Congress that has not been earmarked for a specific need or project.
The $3.5 Trillion in outlays only means it has been distributed to the states or a Federal agency. It does not mean it has been spent.
OPINION: The Democrats’ Voting Rights Agenda Isn’t for Us. It’s for Them
Like the one plaguing shelves in grocery stores across America, there is a supply shortage of racism in the country—but when it comes to the leaders of the Democratic Party, the demand remains high. The Democrats seem to think that the rallying cry of racism is essential to galvanizing their most loyal demographic, Black Americans. And that’s how they have been talking about their new voting rights bill, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
This amounts to little more than gaslighting us into submission, into voting for a party that has long ceased to do anything for us. Because here’s the ugly truth: The Democrats’ agenda, specifically this new voting rights bill, is not actually about helping us Black voters or even American public. It’s about helping the Democratic Party establish and maintain political power. It’s not about protecting Black voters’ right to vote, but about protecting what the Democrats’ see as their right to those voters—in exchange for nothing.
It’s disrespectful at best for the Democratic leadership, paid celebrity shills of the Democratic party, left-leaning political pundits, and more importantly, the President of the United States, to to call any of the recent voting legislation passed in multiple states “Jim Crow 2.0” when voting has been the easiest it’s ever been for any American, especially any Black American. To compare anything happening today to the Jim Crow era is egregious and dastardly, a testament to how the Democratic Party has treated its most loyal base for decades.
Lawmaker Proposes ‘Kyle’s Law’ in Honor of Kyle Rittenhouse
A Tennessee legislator says that he wants to be sure that what happened to Kyle Rittenhouse in Wisconsin never happens in Tennessee, and has drafted a proposal he calls “Kyle’s Law” to make sure of it.
Republican state Rep. Bruce Griffey said the intent of HB1769 is to “balance the scales out a little bit here,” according to WKRN-TV in Nashville.
The bill requires that if a defendant who is accused of homicide is acquitted on the grounds of self-defense, that state must pay that person’s legal fees. The bill would not allow those engaged in criminal conduct at the time of being charged to get a penny.
“I think it’s a reasonable response to make sure citizens are protected from malicious prosecutions or being prosecuted when there’s not really enough evidence in the case to pursue a criminal charge against them,” said Griffey.
Bipartisan Senate majority maintains filibuster and blocks Biden’s voting bills
President Joe Biden’s agenda suffered a major defeat Wednesday night after a bipartisan majority of Senators shut down Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) attempt to use the ‘nuclear option’ and gut the filibuster, in order to pass elections bills.
Biden’s two elections bills failed after the effort to pass them was stymied by Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (W.VA) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ). The two Democrats voted with all Senate Republicans in opposing the attempt to change the Senate filibuster, resulting in a 48-52 final vote.
That vote followed a failed attempt by Democrats led by Schumer to advance the election bills passed the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.
UN defines Holocaust denial in new resolution
The resolution, put forward by Israel and Germany, was passed without a vote by the 193-member General Assembly.
The move sends “a strong… message against the denial or the distortion of these historical facts”, the UN said.
Six million Jewish people died in the Holocaust – Nazi Germany’s campaign to eradicate Europe’s Jewish population.
On Thursday, the UN General Assembly said it “rejects and condemns without any reservation any denial of The Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part”.
“Ignoring historical facts increases the risk that they will be repeated,” Germany’s UN Ambassador Antje Leendertse said.

China warns U.S. of ‘serious consequences’ after Navy warship crosses South China Sea
Beijing said that it spotted the USS Benfold, a guided-missile destroyer, enter into disputed waters near the Paracel Islands — and issued a stern warning for the U.S. military.
“We solemnly demand that the U.S. side immediately stop such provocative actions,” a Chinese military spokesman said, according to The Guardian. “Otherwise it will bear the serious consequences of unforeseen events.”
China said the ship entered territorial waters without approval, but the Pentagon said the claim is “false” and that the vessel’s crossing breached no international law.
A German investigation into abuses within the Catholic Church accuses Pope Benedict of ‘wrongdoing’
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI was accused Thursday by a German investigative panel of “wrongdoing” in his handling of sexual-abuse cases during his time at the head of the Munich archdiocese, from 1977 to1982, when he was known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.
The law firm that conducted the investigation says Benedict’s claims that he had no direct knowledge of the cases of sexual abuse were ultimately not credible.
The firm introduced its nearly 1,900-page report at a news conference Thursday, during which it said that Benedict could be accused of wrongdoing in four cases of sexual abuse, including one in which he knowingly accepted a priest into his archdiocese after the former had been criminally convicted of sexual abuse.
China, Russia, Iran sending warships for joint drill in Middle East
China, Russia and Iran have held joint naval drills in the past. In December of 2019, amid tensions between the U.S. and Iran, the three countries held joint drills in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Oman. Russia and Iran held naval drills in the northern Indian Ocean again in February of last year.
These latest drills come as remain high between the U.S. and all three countries, but especially Russia, which has kept around 100,000 troops along the border with Ukraine for months.
Last week Retired U.S. Army Gen. Curtis “Mike” Scaparrotti told the Institute for Corean-American Studies that China and Iran will be watching closely how the U.S. responds to the military tensions along Ukraine’s border with Russia.

I’m A Triple-Vaccinated Pharma Executive. Here’s Why I Quit Over My Company’s Vaccine Mandate
I tendered my resignation from the pharma company Insmed Incorporated, headquartered in Bridgewater, New Jersey. It was accepted. In so doing, I forfeited what could amount to millions of dollars over the coming years.
That said, my decision was easy. I can comfortably afford to be unemployed. Other colleagues at Insmed I spoke to are not so fortunate. Some would even have to sell their homes. The economically weak are hurt by these mandates imposed by the economically strong.
When asked about natural immunity at a “Town Hall” meeting, the company said, in response to an employee question and without supporting data, that even those who have had the virus should be vaxxed. This is from a company that claims to “follow the science.”
