I’m OK with that because I am watching people get absolutely destroyed,” Long said in court.

In one speech that has gone viral online, MEP Mislav Kolakusic of Croatia criticized Canada’s leader, stating, “There are those among us who trample on those fundamental values,” a reference to some protesters getting trampled by police horses near Parliament Hill. “For many of us are fundamental human rights for which millions of citizens of Europe and the world have laid down their lives,” Kolakusic said in front of Trudeau, who had addressed parliament. “To defend our rights and the rights of our children, which we have acquired over the centuries, many of us, including myself, are willing to risk, our freedom and our own lives.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Introduces Bill to Ban U.S. Funding of ‘Bioweapons’ in Ukraine | 26 March 2022 | Last week, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) introduced a bill called “Stopping the Spread of Taxpayer-Funded Bioweapon Act” to ban US funding for bio-labs in Ukraine and other countries that will go nowhere in the Democratic-controlled House. Speaking for the House floor last Thursday, Greene said lawmakers need to ask what happens in these US-funded labs. She said taxpayers not only fund the labs but also fund their construction through federal grants to private companies. She asked what happens if dangerous pathogens housed in these labs escape, leading to people dying in the area. She claimed to have heard about reports of deadly pathogens escaping from biolabs in Ukraine, Georgia, and Kazakhstan that have killed people, asking, “What if that’s true?”
Hunter Biden DID help secure millions in funding for US contractor in Ukraine specializing in deadly pathogen research, laptop emails reveal, raising more questions about the son of then vice president –The emails show Hunter helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases –Joe Biden’s son and his colleagues invested 500,000 in Metabiota through their firm Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners –They raised several million dollars of funding for the company from investment giants including Goldman Sachs | 25 March 2022 | Moscow’s claim that Hunter Biden helped finance a US military “bioweapons” research program in Ukraine is at least partially true, according to new emails obtained exclusively by DailyMail dot com.
The commander of the Russian Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Forces, claimed there was a “scheme of interaction between US government agencies and Ukrainian biological objects” and pointed to the “financing of such activities by structures close to the current US leadership, in particular the investment fund Rosemont Seneca, which is headed by Hunter Biden.” Intelligence experts say the Russian military leader’s allegations were a brazen propaganda ploy to justify president Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and sow discord in the US. But emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show he helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons. He also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a “science project” involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine.

Judge Tosses Maryland Congressional Map Over ‘Extreme Partisan Gerrymandering’ | 26 March 2022 | A Maryland judge on March 25 threw out a congressional map lawmakers recently enacted, ruling that it was a product of “extreme partisan gerrymandering.” Anne Arundel County Senior Judge Lynne Battaglia, an appointee of former Gov. Glendening (D), found that the map unconstitutionally was aimed at reducing the power of Republican voters because it shifted the only GOP member of Congress representing Maryland, Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), into a different district, where he was likely to lose. The new map, approved by Democratic state lawmakers in Maryland in late 2021, left Democrats with an estimated advantage in every single one of the eight congressional districts, according to the Princeton Gerrymandering Project. Further, Sean Trende, an elections analyst tapped by plaintiffs, found through voting simulations that Democrats would likely win all eight districts.
Colorado wildfire forces evacuation of more than 19,000 residents | 27 March 2022 | Colorado authorities ordered the evacuation of more than 8,000 homes and 7,000 buildings, affecting more than 19,000 people in Boulder as a rolling wildfire threatened the area, officials said.

The fire is spreading near the same area where a 2021 blaze destroyed more than 1,000 homes.
