Vaccinated Make Up Vast Majority of COVID-19 Hospitalizations: Study

The vast majority of the COVID-19 hospitalizations in the spring were among vaccinated people, according to a study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Researchers analyzed data from the COVID-19–Associated Hospitalization Surveillance Network, a CDC surveillance network comprised of hospitals in 14 states.

From March 20 to May 31, there were 1,228 COVID-19-associated hospitalizations in the hospitals. Of those, a plurality—44.1 percent—were people who had received at least one booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on top of a primary series, including 45 patients with two or more boosters.

Another 24.3 percent were people who received a primary series and no booster. Only 27.8 percent were unvaccinated, or had no record of having received a vaccine.

Partially vaccinated people were excluded.

At the time, Omicron’s BA.2 subvariant was dominant in the United States. Omicron is a variant of the virus that causes COVID-19.

Border Patrol Busts Hundreds of Adult Migrants Posing as Minors to Dodge Deportation

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is charged with caring for illegal aliens under the age of 18 and the agency spends millions of dollars annually to house, medically treat, entertain, and school UAC who come mainly from Central America.

Undoubtedly, illegal immigrant minors are almost always allowed to remain in the U.S. and quickly disbursed to a government-funded shelter upon arrival at the border.

The special treatment has led to even more criminal behavior by those already breaking the law entering the U.S. illegally.

In El Paso alone, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirms that more than 655 adult migrants posing as minors have been busted in fiscal year 2022. This week the agency announced that the El Paso Sector has recently seen an unusual amount of activity involving adults posing as minors to dodge deportation.

In one of the incidents agents identified 10 adults posting as UAC while in custody. CBP has a limited time to transfer UAC to HHS custody once the illegal border crossers are vetted and there begins the journey to stay in the U.S. Bigger criminal enterprises are behind the imposter plots, according to federal authorities.

DeSantis Suspends 4 Broward County School Board Members

PUNTA GORDA, Fla.–Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended four Broward County School Board members on Aug. 26, following a grand jury recommendation citing “incompetence, neglect of duty, and misuse of authority.”

A Statewide Grand Jury released a 122-page report accusing the four of a range of “inexcusable actions… and unacceptable behavior” relating to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on Feb. 14, 2018, when 17 students and staff lost their lives.

The governor said he took the report’s recommendations and decided to act on his constitutional authority as governor.

“It is my duty to suspend people from office when there is clear evidence of incompetence, neglect of duty, misfeasance or malfeasance,” DeSantis said in a written statement. “We hope this suspension brings the Parkland community another step towards justice. This action is in the best interest of the residents and students of Broward County and all citizens of Florida.”

In announcing the suspensions, DeSantis said, “These are inexcusable actions by school board members who have shown a pattern of emboldening unacceptable behavior, including fraud and mismanagement, across the district.”

Multistate E. Coli Outbreak Rises to 84 Cases, Majority Linked to Wendy’s Restaurants

In an Aug. 25 press release, the health agency said 52 of the 62 people—or 84 percent—it interviewed reported to have eaten the sandwiches at Wendy’s in the week before they fell ill.

A total of 84 people from four U.S. states—Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania—have been sickened due to the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7, an increase of 47 people since the CDC’s previous update last week.

The outbreak has also hospitalized 38 people. Those who fell ill ranged in age from 5 to 94 years, with a median age of 24 years. No deaths have been reported.

The agency stressed that the actual number of sick people is likely higher than reported and the outbreak may not be limited to the four states with known illnesses.

Texas judge rules that all adults, including 18-year-olds, have the right to open-carry a handgun

On Thursday, district court Judge Mark Pittman ruled that the law violated the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Pittman also examined history and determined that prohibiting adults, though young, from carrying handguns openly had no historical precedent.

“The undisputed historical evidence establishes that 18-to-20-year-olds were understood to be a part of the militia in the Founding Era,” Pittman wrote in the opinion.

This decision in Texas is believed to be the first major Second Amendment judicial ruling since the Supreme Court of the United States struck down stringent gun restriction laws in New York state in June.

Moderna sues Pfizer and BioNTech over COVID vaccine technology

“We believe that Pfizer and BioNTech unlawfully copied Moderna’s inventions, and they have continued to use them without permission,” said Moderna Chief Legal Officer Shannon Thyme Klinger.

The release went further, with the company stating that they believe “Pfizer and BioNTech copied two key features of Moderna’s patented technologies which are critical to the success of mRNA vaccines.

When COVID-19 emerged, neither Pfizer nor BioNTech had Moderna’s level of experience with developing mRNA vaccines for infectious diseases, and they knowingly followed Moderna’s lead in developing their own vaccine.”

According to an email received by a spokesperson at Global News, Pfizer/BioNTech has not yet fully reviewed the complaint, but the company is “surprised” by the news.

Tom Bensman: Migrants are not poor | “National Report”

On Friday’s “National Report,” Author, America’s Covert Border War: ‘The Untold Story of the Nation’s Battle to Prevent Jihadist Infiltration,” Tom Bensman gives details on how migrants are using social media on cell phones they “can’t afford.”

D.C. will begin enrolling illegal immigrants for the upcoming school year while also barring kids unvaccinated for Covid from attending.

According to The Daily Caller, “The program can enroll 40 illegal migrants in Washington schools for the fall school year,” with D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Lewis D. Ferebee saying that the district “will ensure that students have access to the services needed, and if they reside in a particular area, [the district] will ensure that they have access to their neighborhood school.”

“Ferebee added that the school district has a ‘strong welcoming center’ to enroll the migrants,” the Daily Caller noted.

While rolling out the welcome mat for illegal immigrants, D.C. government officials couldn’t find similar compassion for American children living in the city, many of whom will not be allowed to acquire an education under the D.C. public school system’s Covid jab mandate.

As reported by The Daily Signal, the Democrat-run city “does not appear to have a contingency plan for unvaccinated students, who are banned from attending schools in person this fall after the first 20 days,” with D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser admitting in a recent press conference that “there are no alternative options, including virtual learning, for students who cannot attend school due to the District’s vaccine mandate, meaning unvaccinated children will effectively be left without an education.”

After Proclaiming The Opposite, Medical Pros Quietly Admit Mutilating Trans Kids Doesn’t Fix Depression

The study earned nationwide praise. As Texas and Idaho were debating bans on allowing children to receive cross-sex hormones, this was the perfect research to show the heartlessness of conservative lawmakers and pundits who declared puberty blockers and surgical intervention as a dangerous and potentially irreversible gamble. 

Most dramatically, after tracking the mental health of 104 transgender-identifying patients aged 13 to 20 for a year at Seattle Children’s Hospital, “gender-affirming care was associated with a 60% reduction in depression and a 73% drop in harmful or suicidal thoughts among the participants.”

But the study didn’t actually say what was initially claimed. Some voices now accuse the researchers of purposefully misinterpreting data to promote the irreversible.

By April 8, UW Medicine communications staff dramatically changed the claims. 

Independent journalist Jesse Singal started posing questions about the study to UW Communications staff, and one of the study’s authors, who agreed to speak on background, confirmed that some of the data the researchers presented, along with their claims, did not add up.

SWAT Team vs. Man with Sword Holding Wife, Children Hostage

“TIME TO DIE” — After a failed negotiation attempt, the Sacramento Police Department dispatched a SWAT team to rescue a woman and her children after her husband held them hostage and was overheard saying “time to die,” on August 10, in Sacramento, California.

13 US troops killed in Kabul bombing remembered 1 year later

On August 26, 2021, 11 U.S. Marines, a U.S. Navy Corpsman and a U.S. Army soldier were killed in a suicide bombing attack at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. They were the first U.S. troop deaths in Afghanistan since February 2020. Their deaths came in the final days of the 20-year war in Afghanistan.

Those 13 slain troops and 18 additional troops who were injured were the last casualties of America’s 20-year war in Afghanistan.

On Aug. 31, five days after the suicide bombing attack, the U.S. concluded the civilian evacuation and final withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

Within days of their deaths, bars and restaurants around the country began honoring the fallen 13 service members by setting an empty table with 13 beers in their honor.

By December, Congress and President Joe Biden had finalized bipartisan legislation to honor the 13 service members with the Congressional Gold Medal.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo marked the one-year anniversary of the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal and evacuation from Afghanistan by remembering the 13 U.S. troops who were killed and all of the Americans who Biden abandoned behind enemy lines.

 “They didn’t have to die. This was a direct result of the decision that President Biden made. A political decision to set a date certain,” Pompeo said, adding that the Trump administration had a plan in place to safely draw down the number of Americans in Afghanistan. 

“[The Trump administration] was down to just about 2,500 Americans, but Brian, we had a set of conditions tied to that. President Biden came in and ripped up that plan,” he continued. “When the Taliban began to move against the forces there during the Biden administration, he let them roll over us.

When they did it to [the Trump administration], we dropped bombs on their head.” 

Episode 29 | Government Gone Wild, Pt. 7 | Rip-Off Of The Week 2022

The Trump Search Warrant Affidavit has been released

The DOJ just released the affidavit submitted in support of the search warrant of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence.

Here it is for download.

As expected, the judge allowed the Government to heavily redact the affidavit before it went public. In yesterday’s order, the judge found that parts of the affidavit must remain sealed because:

disclosure would reveal (1) the identities of witnesses, law enforcement agents, and uncharged parties, (2) the investigation’s strategy, direction, scope, sources, and methods, and (3) grand jury information protected by Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e).

This aligns with the DOJ representations that (1) information in the affidavit “could be used to identify many, if not all” of the witnesses; (2) the affidavit would provide a “roadmap for anyone intent on obstructive the investigation.”

TIMELINE: ‘Convenient’ events suggest THIS is really why FBI raided Mar-a-Lago

The Justice Department has now released the affidavit that purportedly lays out the evidence used to obtain the warrant for the Mar-a-Lago raid, but the material is so heavily redacted that very little information has actually been released.

So, Glenn Beck took to the chalkboard to break down the timeline of the events that lead up to the Mar-a-Lago raid and revealed that there were a whole lot of “convenient” coincidences that all revolved around one thing: Trump’s attempt to declassify materials related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Peter Navarro: I can’t stop laughing at the redactions

Former Trump White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro can’t stop laughing at the redactions from the DOJ’s affidavit and responds to Mark Zuckerberg’s bombshell interview with Joe Rogan about Facebook curbing Hunter Biden posts – via. “American Agenda” on Newsmax.

Mark Zuckerberg’s shocking revelation to Joe Rogan

Fox News contributor Joe Concha discusses the Facebook CEO’s admission that the platform suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop story before the 2020 presidential election.

He also weighs in on the U.S.’s double standard on vaccine mandates.

CONFIRMED: FBI Colluded With Big Tech To Prevent Voters From Learning About Hunter Biden’s Laptop


In mid-October, the New York Post published content from the abandoned laptop revealing that then-candidate Joe Biden had been lying when he repeatedly claimed that he never spoke business with his son, “or with anyone else.”

Emails found on the hard drive also showed that the former vice president stood to personally profit from Hunter’s business dealings thanks to close affiliates with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Moments after the stories broke, Facebook promptly announced through a corporate spokesman, who was previously a Democratic operative, that the company would be “reducing its distribution on our platform” pending verification by third-party fact-checkers.

“I think it was 5 to 7 days when it was basically being determined whether it was false,” Zuckerberg said, without disclosing which third parties conducted the network’s so-called fact check. “Fewer people saw it than would have otherwise.”

At the same time, the FBI was actively working to suppress information surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop internally as disinformation.

On Wednesday, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson published a whistleblower report from bureau officials who claim that agency leaders instructed agents to ignore the laptop’s contents.

With GOP Leaders Like McConnell, Who Needs Enemies?

What did he mean by “candidate quality?” He implied that many of the Republican Senate nominees are too conservative, too affiliated with President Donald Trump and too likely to support “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) policies.

McConnell prefers establishment Republicans, the moderate “country club” candidates who cherish the Deep State, bureaucracy, growing government and raising taxes. They just want to do it slightly less than their Democratic colleagues.

These Republicans are globalists and open border supporters who are unconcerned that millions of illegal aliens have entered the United States during Biden’s term. These McConnell Republicans also do not oppose government COVID-19 mandates or attacks against our children in the classroom with curriculum that is sexualized and infested with anti-American poison.

Hochul Tells Republican Candidates To Leave The State, GOP Responds

Gov. Kathy Hochul spent the last night before Election Day using a new campaign tactic– encouraging GOP voters to leave the state of New York.

“Jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong,” Gov. Hochul lambasted her opponent, Lee Zeldin, and other Republicans on Monday night — implying anyone who is not a supporter, therefore, “is not a New Yorker.”

This reminds us of the time Joe Biden told black voters they “ain’t black” if they were considering voting for former President Donald Trump.

Hochul for the second time in recent weeks used her platform to play into national party politics by attacking the state of Florida. Yet, it is Hochul’s own decisions and policies that actually have New Yorkers envious of the sunshine state.

HONG KONG/NEW YORK — China and the U.S. have signed an audit oversight agreement, China’s top securities regulator announced Friday, paving the way for further cooperation on an impasse that has threatened Chinese shares with delisting.

The deal was signed between the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), China’s Ministry of Finance, and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) of the U.S.

Under the agreement, the U.S. will have to obtain Chinese companies’ audit records through Chinese regulatory authorities and conduct interviews or inquiries with the auditors involving Chinese authorities, CSRC said in a statement.
