Pentagon Approves Hazard Pay for U.S. Troops in Ukraine, Paving Way for Possible Expanded Presence –Troops can earn 325 in total monthly “imminent danger pay” | 28 July 2023 | There’s been more confirmation to emerge concerning the American military presence in Ukraine, and its expanding role in the conflict, bringing NATO dangerously closer into a potential hot war with Russia. “The Pentagon has authorized additional hazard pay for U.S. troops serving in Ukraine, a defense official confirmed Thursday,” according to the publication Military Times. “The bonus, known as imminent danger pay, is offered to troops who serve in areas where they could be harmed by hostile fire or mines, insurrection, civil war or terrorism.” The statement also interestingly said that qualifying troops in Ukraine will be authorized back pay as far back as April 24, 2022–which strongly suggests a significant U.S. presence inside the war-ravaged country since then, or from the opening months of the conflict.

Biden Cut a Massive Check to Ukraine After Forcing a Family to Pay $60,000 to Move Soldier’s Remains | 27 July 2023 | In the latest tactic of President [sic] Joe Biden’s “put America last” agenda, the administration cut another massive check to Ukraine while families of lost soldiers are being forgotten. This week, the Biden administration approved another 400 million in additional military aid for Ukraine, making it the 43rd time the U.S. has sent weapons from its supply to the foreign country… The aid package includes air defense missiles, armored vehicles, and small drones. It was approved through Presidential Drawdown Authority (PDA), which allows the president to transfer articles and services from U.S. stocks without congressional approval in emergencies. However, several critics question whether the Russia-Ukraine war should still be considered an emergency… This comes as reports reveal a family who lost their daughter in Afghanistan while serving the U.S. was billed 60,000 to move her remains to her final resting place.

Collapsed Hunter Biden plea deal would have given president’s son immunity for host of potential crimes –Botched agreement legally protected first son from alleged drug, gun violations, foreign business deals | 27 July 2023 | Hunter Biden’s plea deal with federal prosecutors, which fell apart during his first court appearance in Delaware on Wednesday, would have granted him broad immunity, protecting him from prosecution over a wide range of alleged and potential federal crimes, according to newly released documents. The son of President [sic] Biden was expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax as part of a deal to avoid jail time on a felony gun charge. Specifically, the legal arrangement involved both a plea agreement over the tax charges and a related pretrial “diversion agreement” regarding a separate felony charge of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. Under the diversion agreement, the government wouldn’t charge Biden with the more serious gun charge if he pleaded guilty to the tax charges.
Hunter Biden could STILL be charged over deals with China and Ukraine as ‘sweetheart’ plea deal on tax and gun charges dramatically collapses in Delaware court drama –Hunter’s court appearance spiraled into chaos after first plea deal fell apart –U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika questioned the terms of the agreement –New compromise hashed out means Hunter is still on the hook for more crimes | 26 July 2023 | Hunter Biden could be on the hook for more criminal charges related to his business deals with China and Ukraine after prosecutors and his legal team negotiated a limited new plea arrangement — because their first one sensationally collapsed. The compromise hashed out in dramatic scenes in court includes his failure to pay taxes and lying about his crack cocaine addiction when he bought a gun — but it doesn’t shield him from future prosecution for other crimes. The president’s scandal-hit son said “yes, your honor” when asked by the judge if he would plead guilty to two tax misdemeanors and admitted he’s been to rehab six times in 20 years for addiction to drinking and drugs. But then the agreement between prosecutors and the defense suddenly fell apart when the president’s son was warned he could still be charged for his shady foreign dealings that Republicans say involve his father, Joe. Hunter’s attorney Chris Clark said the deal was “null and void” after top prosecutor Leo Wise said Hunter was still being investigated for potential violations related to representing foreign governments.
Hunter Biden plea deal falling apart in stunning turn of events as prosecutors keep future charges alive | 26 July 2023 | First son Hunter Biden’s plea agreement was collapsing Wednesday as federal prosecutors declined to rule out charging the political scion with other crimes in the future. The stunning turn of events came more than 90 minutes into the hearing at the federal courthouse in Wilmington, Del., where Hunter had been expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay taxes and enter a diversion program on a felony federal weapons charge. But prosecutors told U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika there was still a possibility President [sic] Biden’s 53-year-old son would be charged with offenses, potentially including failing to register as a foreign agent for lucrative dealings in countries such as China and Ukraine that allegedly involved his father. Defense attorney Chris Clark refused to move forward with the deal after it became clear that the federal investigation into the first son was ongoing. “As far as I’m concerned, the plea agreement is null and void,” Clark reportedly told the court a little before noon.
FBI Told Delaware U.S. Attorney It Had Already Partially Corroborated Biden Bribery Claims, Source Says –FBI agents told the Delaware U.S. attorney’s office they had already corroborated multiple details in the FD-1023, a source told The Federalist. | 24 July 2023 | When the Pittsburgh FBI office briefed the Delaware U.S. attorney’s office on evidence implicating Hunter and Joe Biden in a bribery scheme, the agents also told the Delaware team they had already corroborated several aspects of the confidential human source’s claims, an individual familiar with the briefing told The Federalist. On Thursday, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released the FD-1023 summary of a confidential human source’s reporting that the Ukrainian oil and gas company Burisma paid Hunter and Joe Biden each 5 million in bribes so the then-Vice President would “protect” Burisma “from all kinds of problems.” Those bribes were in addition to the more than 4 million in total paid to Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer for sitting on Burism’s board of directors.
Jordan Releases ‘Smoking Gun Docs’ Confirming Facebook Bowed to White House Censorship Demands –Unredacted Facebook emails released by Rep. Jim Jordan today expose White House demands to quash narratives, and remove memes and posts contradicting the government’s COVID-19 messaging. | 27 July 2023 | Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) today released today a series of unredacted emails from Facebook, that he characterized as proof the White House and other federal agencies exerted pressure on the social media company to censor authors whose posts ran counter to the government’s official pandemic narrative. The emails were provided by Facebook and Instagram parent company Meta to the House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government as part of its ongoing investigation. The move forestalled the committee’s deliberations today about whether or not to hold Mark Zuckerberg in contempt for withholding requested documents. In his lengthy Twitter thread, Jordan called the emails “smoking gun docs,” proving “Facebook and Instagram censored posts and changed their content moderation policies because of unconstitutional pressure from the Biden White House.”
New Zealand’s former COVID tyrant Jacinda Ardern appointed to censorship role at Harvard –The Censorship-Industrial Complex has found a new champion in Jacinda Ardern, who infamously asserted that ‘we will continue to be your single source of truth’ on the subject of COVID-19 when she was New Zealand’s prime minister in 2020. | 25 July 2023 | Former Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern has been rewarded with a prestigious fellowship at Harvard University. As the Berkman Klein Center (the Center) at Harvard reports, “The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University is thrilled to announce Jacinda Ardern as its first Knight Tech Governance Leadership Fellow.” Ardern herself claims she will “address online harms… and violent extremism online…” According to the Center, whose past scholars have worked with Matt Taibbi on The Twitter Files, Ardern will be at the forefront of the fight against a new threat — “algorithmic harms.”
The Censorship Regime: How an Old-School Democrat Is Being Targeted for Destruction by the Totalitarian Deep State By CLG News Founder Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. | 24 July 2023 | Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a not only a scion of the most famous political family in modern American history, but for the establishment, he also represents the most potentially damaging figure to throw his hat in the presidential ring in recent years. Bearing the most popular surname in U.S. politics, Kennedy has nevertheless been in the regime’s crosshairs, partly for his Children’s Health Defense website, which the regime claims has been promoting vaccine “misinformation” and “disinformation” for over twenty years and partly for his opposition to the proxy war in Ukraine… So far, Kennedy’s political assassination has been undertaken with propaganda, lies, and defamation of character. Kennedy even faces the ritual condemnation of his own family members and is reviled by the contemporary Democrat Party establishment… The Democratic members of the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government displayed, in real time, the weaponization of the federal government and the totalitarian impulses that Kennedy has launched his candidacy to oppose.
mRNA COVID Vaccines May Be Triggering ‘Turbo Cancers’ in Young People – Experts | 28 July 2023 | Experts are seeing a puzzling rise in cancer in people under 50 that appears biologically different from late-onset cancers. While some claim cancer rates have been rising for decades and attribute the increase to sugary drinks, lifestyle, and sleep disruptions, others say mRNA COVID-19 vaccines have caused an emergence of “turbo cancers”–and U.S. regulatory agencies have not addressed the ever-growing problem. Although there is no official medical definition for what doctors are calling “turbo cancers,” the term is commonly used to define aggressive, rapid-onset cancers resistant to treatment–primarily in young, healthy individuals following COVID-19 vaccination. These cases often present in a late stage with metastasis and quickly turn fatal. “What’s happening is these cancers we’re used to seeing, their growth patterns and their behavior are completely out of character…So ‘turbo cancer’ is something that wasn’t there and, all of a sudden, it’s everywhere,” Dr. Ryan Cole, a pathologist and CEO of Cole Diagnostics, said in an interview on EpochTV’s American Thought Leaders.
Ship carrying nearly 3,000 cars catches fire possibly due to electric vehicle, 1 dead | 26 July 2023 | A fire blazed on a ship off the Dutch coast with nearly 3,000 vehicles on board on Wednesday, killing one member of the crew and injuring several others, the coastguard said. The fire began on Tuesday night on the 199-metre Panama-registered Fremantle Highway, which was en route from Germany to Egypt, forcing several crew members to jump overboard… Rescue ships sprayed water onto the burning boat to cool it down, but using too much water risked its sinking, the Dutch coastguard said. The fire might last for several days, Dutch news agency ANP reported, citing the coastguard. The coastguard said on its website that the cause of the fire was unknown, but a coast guard spokesperson had earlier told Reuters it began near an electric car. Roughly 25 out 2,857 vehicles on the ship were electric.
