The number of plaintiffs exceeds 130 and will likely end up surpassing 200, according to Dale Saran, one of the attorneys representing the service members.

Fagan, commandant of the Coast Guard; Lloyd Austin, secretary of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and Dr. Janet Woodcock, acting commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Japanese Government Pays Family for Death Tied to COVID Shot | 31 July 2022 | On July 25, 2022, a committee of Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare announced that it would provide a lump-sum death benefit of 44.2 million yen (324,000), plus an additional 212,000 yen for funeral expenses, to the family of an elderly woman who died shortly after receiving a COVID-19 shot.

German Hospital Federation Demands Withdrawal of Vaccination Mandate After Massive Side Effects Revealed | 28 July 2022 | Even after the Ministry of Health admitted on Wednesday that 1 in every 5,000 injections given causes “serious side effects,” they continue to mandate Covid “vaccinations.” Less than a week after the German Ministry of Health admitted that 1 in 5,000 Covid shots lead to serious side effects, the German hospital federation calls for the vaccination obligation for healthcare personnel to be revoked. “It is not wise to continue with it.” Until now, the German Federation of Hospitals (DKG) has favored mandatory vaccination for nursing and care staff. However, according to an official statement, the association, which falls under the Ministry of Health, is now changing its position because the vaccinations have little meaning against the Omicron variant.

University of Michigan Refuses to Consider Mom of Five For a Heart Transplant Over COVID Vaccine | 1 Aug 2022 | Despite a mother of five’s desperate appeal to the University of Michigan (UM) hospital for a life-saving heart transplant, the state-run facility will not budge from its refusal to consider her for surgery until she is vaccinated against COVID-19. The university hospital, which has deep ties to vaccine maker Pfizer, also denied 35-year-old Katie Shier’s application for a religious exemption. In a recent, heart-wrenching email about her condition, Katie Shier describes how the pump she relies on to keep her heart beating has become engulfed in a bacteria that is no longer responding to the series of antibiotics she’s been prescribed by University of Michigan doctors. As a result, Shier has been repeatedly hospitalized for blood infections. She and her husband Ron are worried it will eventually lead to sepsis, which can be fatal. “It just feels like no one at UM cares what they are doing to us and to our kids,” Ron Shier told The Epoch Times.

Billionaire-funded eco group quietly taking farmland out of production in rural America | 29 July 2022 | The American Prairie (AP), a conservation project in Montana, has quietly scooped up more than 450,000 acres of land with the help of its billionaire donors and the federal government. The little-known project aims to create the largest “fully functioning ecosystem” in the continental U.S. by stitching together about 3.2 million acres of private and public lands, according to the American Prairie Foundation, which founded the reserve more than 20 years ago. The group has recorded 34 transactions spanning roughly 453,188 acres of land throughout central Montana — much of which were once used for farming and grazing — since 2004 and continues to aggressively expand. “Our mission is to assemble the largest complex of public and private lands devoted to wildlife in the lower 48,” Pete Geddes, AP’s vice president and chief external relations officer, told Fox News Digital in an interview.

WEF Issues Edict to Global Leaders: Phase Out Car Ownership, People Can ‘Walk or Share’ | 23 July 2022 | Earlier this month, Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum ordered compliant governments around the world to increase the already sky-high price of gas. Now the WEF is claiming people have no right to own cars and must instead “walk or share.” In a paper published by the WEF on Friday, the globalist elites claim that communal sharing of cars is part of a “circular approach” necessary to reduce global demands for precious metals and fossil fuels. Thousands of private jets fly into Davos each year for the WEF’s summit, but according to Klaus Schwab, ordinary people should not own their own car.

China suspends 2,000 food products from Taiwan as Nancy Pelosi visits –Taipei perceives bans as retribution for US House Speaker’s trip | 2 Aug 2022 | China has blocked imports from hundreds of Taiwanese food producers and temporarily suspended exports of natural sand to the country in what Taipei perceives as the opening shot in a campaign to punish it economically for a visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Since Monday night, when US and Taiwanese officials confirmed that Pelosi would travel to Taiwan to meet President Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday, the China Customs Administration has suspended imports of more than 2,000 of about 3,200 food products from Taiwan. …Analysts and government officials said the move was a huge expansion of such economic warfare.

Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan is designed by US to start conflict – analyst | 2 Aug 2022 | Senior US officials have dismissed the possible visit to Taiwan by the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi as of no significance and stated that if China acts to oppose it, the ensuing conflict would be Beijing’s fault. But researcher Tim Anderson told RT, the move appears to be a pre-planned provocation meant to trigger a major confrontation with China. “They say ‘this is China’s war’ as they said Ukraine was Russia’s war,” he said, referring to Moscow’s failed effort to get security guarantees from the US before it launched a military attack against its neighbor in late February…Pelosi “is going in there with a military escort, there are a number of large warships going with her,” he noted, referring to the reported deployment by the US Navy to ensure the safety of the congressional delegation. Considering that Washington formally recognized Taiwan as part of China, the move can be considered a “military incursion” into Chinese territory, Anderson suggested.

Afghans cast doubt on Kabul killing of Al-Qaeda chief | 2 Aug 2022 | Many Afghans expressed shock or doubt Tuesday that Al-Qaeda’s chief had been killed in Kabul by a US drone strike, saying they couldn’t believe Ayman Al-Zawahiri had been hiding in their midst. “It’s just propaganda,” Fahim Shah, 66, a resident of the Afghan capital, told AFP. Late Monday, Joe Biden announced Zawahiri’s assassination, saying, “justice has been delivered” to the Egyptian with a 25 million bounty on his head… “We have experienced such propaganda in the past, and there was never anything in it,” Shah said. “In reality, I don’t think he was killed here.”

Afghanistan’s Taliban government has not confirmed the death of Zawahiri, an Egyptian surgeon who had a 25 million bounty on his head and helped to coordinate the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States that killed nearly 3,000 people. U.S. officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Zawahiri was killed when he came out on the balcony of his safe house in the Afghan capital at 6:18 a.m. (0148 GMT) on Sunday and was hit by Hellfire missiles from a U.S. drone.

The July survey is the first time that Biden’s approval rating has fallen below 40 percent in Gallup’s monthly polls since he took office in January 2021. A follow up question found that 45 percent of Americans “strongly” disapprove of Biden’s performance, compared to just 13 percent who strongly approve. [Right, so it’s time to kill Ayman Al-Zawahiri again. He’s “died” about eight times perviously, whenever a president’s poll ratings needed a lift.]

Eastern Kentucky flooding updates: Death toll rises to 37, more rain in forecast | 1 Aug 2022 | The death toll is climbing as recovery efforts continue across several Eastern Kentucky counties ransacked by last week’s historic flooding as local and state agencies, as well as national relief organizations, help residents starting to return to their homes and begin the cleanup process.

Liz Cheney Is Lying About Trump’s Inaction on the National Guard –Before Liz Cheney claimed President Donald Trump took no action on the National Guard, she coordinated a campaign to prevent its deployment. | 2 Aug 2022 | Days before the Capitol riot provoked a years-long effort to impeach, prosecute, and politically malign former President Donald Trump, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney coordinated efforts to deter the very actions she now claims haunt the former president. Cheney has blamed Trump for not ordering the National Guard to defend the Capitol complex, even though multiple sources confirm that he authorized their deployment days prior to the Jan. 6 rally at the White House and riot at the Capitol. Security officials in charge of the Capitol declined to call up troops to protect it, government records show. Yet, Cheney herself seems to have orchestrated opposition to use of the military to quell election-related unrest, allegedly organizing a Washington Post op-ed on Jan. 3, 2021, signed by every living former defense secretary.

Cassidy Hutchinson Reportedly Worked for Trump Nine Weeks After He Left Office | 2 Aug 2022 | Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, who became a star [alleged] witness in the Select Committee on Jan. 6 show trials, continued to work for former President Donald Trump nine weeks after he left office. Hutchinson, according to government documents published by Business Insider, worked as a “coordinator” in Trump’s taxpayer-funded post-presidential office from about Jan. 20, 2021, when the Biden presidency began, to April 1, 2021. Records from the General Services Administration show the low-level aid was raking in what would amount to an annual salary of 90,000. The post-presidential employment lasting months after the Jan. 6 riot stands in stark contrast to the narrative Hutchinson presented to lawmakers in June.

Los Angeles Ends Citizenship Requirement for Government Jobs | 1 Aug 2022 | People in the United States illegally can now work for Los Angeles County with no requirement to provide proof of citizenship.

Solis and co-authored by Sheila Kuehl, the policy allegedly aims to better represent the “community” in city government.

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court Upholds Mail-In Voting Law on Party-Line Vote | 2 Aug 2022 | The Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the state’s law allowing mail-in voting on a strict party-line vote after the lower court ruled in January that it violated the state’s constitution. The state’s mail-in voting law, Act 77, was upheld on a 5-2 decision released Tuesday from the state’s partisan Supreme Court; only two of the judges are Republican. Justice Sallie Updyke Mundy began her dissent in the case: “Its most glaring omission is its failure to come to grips with the fact that the Pennsylvania Constitution’s election-related provisions have been amended on numerous occasions in the 160 years since this Court first explained that by default it requires in-person voting, and in none of those instances have the people of this Commonwealth sought to eliminate, alter, or clarify the textual basis for that ruling as it appears in our organic law…

Thousands of western Pennsylvania Democrats are leaving for the Republican Party. No one seems sure why | 1 Aug 2022 | A significant number of voters in western Pennsylvania are leaving the Democratic Party to become Republicans ahead of the 2022 midterms, a trend that’s taken shape over several years and has both parties split on what the reason for the pattern is. From Jan. 1 to July 25, more than 8,100 Democrats changed their voter registration to Republican in Allegheny County and the adjacent Armstrong, Butler, Beaver, Washington and Westmoreland counties., according to Pennsylvania Department of State data. Less than a third of that number — 2,500 — made the change in the opposite direction, and Republicans have held a similar advantage in persuading independents and third-party registrants to come aboard.

Gretchen Whitmer in the November general election. The Associated Press called the race for Dixon with approximately 19% of the vote counted, showing her in the lead with 41% of the vote. Dixon received a last-minute endorsement from former President Donald Trump on Friday, which appeared to help solidly her front-runner status… Whitmer is seeking a second term as governor following a tumultuous few years filled with criticism over her [mis]handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which included a slow economic recovery for the state, a large loss of small businesses, and suffering school performance.

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) were among the GOP figures who joined former President Trump at the LIV Golf event at his Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey this weekend. At one point, the crowd gathered near where the trio were watching the action, in a tent just off a tee box, and broke out in a “Let’s Go, Brandon” chant, an online joke turned political slogan popularized on the right by critics of Joe Biden. Carlson, Greene and Trump are all seen smiling on the video, with the former president giving the crowd several fist bumps and egging them on.
