FBI Arrests Peter Navarro One Day After He Vows to Impeach Biden | 3 June 2022 | The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrested former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro on Friday, acting on a referral from the Democratic-run House that held him in contempt for refusing to testify at the partisan January 6 Committee. The arrest came one day after Navarro appeared on MSNBC to promise that he would lead efforts to promote the impeachment of Joe Biden if Republicans take Congress in the midterm elections, which they are expected to do. Navarro was held in contempt by Congress in March, along with former White House communications aide Dan Scavino, who was accused of refusing to testify based on false claims by the committee that he had not tried to cooperate. As Breitbart News noted at the time: Navarro has said candidly in interviews that the plan among Trump loyalists was to use a peaceful protest at the Capitol to pressure Congress and Vice President Mike Pence to reject the certification of Electoral College votes from states where the results were being contested by the Trump campaign. Contrary to the claims of the January 6 committee, Navarro said that the violence that erupted interfered with the plan and ensured its failure.

Studies Link Incurable Prion Disease With COVID-19 Vaccine | 4 June 2022 | Studies on COVID-19 vaccines have suggested links between Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD)–an incurable and fatal prion disease–and getting the COVID-19 vaccine. A recent French pre-print on CJD and COVID-19 vaccination has suggested that the COVID-19 vaccine may have contributed to the emergence of a new type of sporadic CJD disease that is a lot more aggressive and rapid in disease progression as compared to the traditional CJD. CJD is a rare disease caused by an abnormal protein in the brain called a prion. Prions naturally occur in the brain and are usually harmless, but when they become diseased or misfolded, they will affect nearby prions to also become misshapen, leading to deterioration of brain tissue and death. The disease is incurable as once one prion becomes infected, it will continue to propagate to other prions with no treatment capable of stopping its progress.

If U.S. Delivers Long-Range Missiles to Ukraine, Russia Might Hit Earlier Unaffected Targets – Putin | 5 June 2022 | On Wednesday, Joe Biden announced a new Ukraine military assistance package, which includes High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS). Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that if the US delivers long-range missiles to Ukraine, Russia might hit earlier unaffected targets. “Missiles are needed then, yes.

U.S. will allow two companies to ship Venezuelan oil to Europe | 5 June 2022 | Italian oil company Eni SpA and Spain’s Repsol SA could begin shipping Venezuelan oil to Europe as soon as next month to make up for Russian crude, five people familiar with the matter said, resuming oil-for-debt swaps halted two years ago when Washington stepped up sanctions on Venezuela. The volume of oil Eni and Repsol are expected to receive is not large, one of the people said, and any impact on global oil prices will be modest. But Washington’s greenlight to resume Venezuela’s long-frozen oil flows to Europe could provide a symbolic boost for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. The U.S. State Department gave the nod to the two companies to resume shipments in a letter, the people said.
