Breaking: Biden tests positive for COVID in ‘rebound’ case, doctor says | 30 July 2022 | Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 in a “rebound” case on Saturday, according to the White House. “As described last week, acknowledging the potential for so-called “rebound” COVID positivity observed in a small [?] percentage of patients treated with PAXLOVID the President increased his testing cadence, both to protect people around him and to assure early detection of any return of viral replication,” White House Doctor Dr. Kevin O’Connor said. [Looks like the experimental mRNA jabs and/or Paxlovid — like the CDC and FDA — are absolutely *useless.* Time to break out the Ivermectin, as should have been the case shortly after COVID-19 emerged by and for the globalists —LRP.]
CDC told Big Tech to censor COVID claims now debated by mainstream scientists, documents show | 29 July 2022 | The newly revealed scope of collaboration between the feds and Big Tech in stamping out purported COVID-19 misinformation and promoting government narratives has opened a new chapter in constitutional challenges to state-influenced censorship by private actors. On Wednesday night, America First Legal (AFL) published the first 286-page batch of emails among CDC, Google, Twitter and Meta staffers, some of whom were former Hill and White House aides. The production was compelled through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, and typical of government document dumps, it’s not text-searchable. The emails show intimate cooperation was well underway by the time the White House a year ago acknowledged the effort, which included thinly veiled threats for not more aggressively removing content.

Judge Orders Air Force Not to Punish Members Seeking Religious Exemptions to COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate | 28 July 2022 | Air Force officials were ordered on July 27 not to discipline airmen who are seeking religious exemptions to the military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. U.S. District Judge Matthew McFarland, a Trump appointee, entered a preliminary injunction against the military branch. McFarland two weeks earlier issued a temporary restraining order. He asked the military to make its case as to why he shouldn’t enter a preliminary injunction, a longer-lasting measure. In a 16-page filing, government lawyers said blocking the military from punishing unvaccinated members “would interfere with ongoing legal proceedings and would otherwise be improper, particularly in light of significant new developments.”

FBI: Man charged in attempted assassination of Kavanaugh hoped to kill three Supreme Court justices | 28 July 2022 | The California man charge with the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh researched how to commit an assassination and planned on “shooting for 3” justices in the weeks prior to traveling to the Washington, D.C., area, according to an FBI search warrant application. Nicholas John Roske, 26, allegedly traveled to Kavanaugh’s suburban Maryland home last month with a pistol, ammunition, a knife and burglary gear with the intent to kill the justice over concerns about high court decisions on Second Amendment issues and the court’s conservative majority striking down Roe v. Wade to end constitutional abortion rights. The FBI said Roske looked up terms such as “most effective place to stab someone” and “quietest semi auto rifle,” CNN reported… Other search terms from Roske’s phone, which was taken by investigators when he was arrested, include searches such as “assassin skills,” “how to be stealthy” and a list of current Supreme Court members.
National Security Search Engine: Google’s Ranks Are Filled With CIA Agents –“We lied, we cheated, we stole.” | 25 July 2022 | Google — one of the largest and most influential organizations in the modern world — is filled with ex-CIA agents. Studying employment websites and databases, MintPress has ascertained that the Silicon Valley giant has recently hired dozens of professionals from the Central Intelligence Agency in recent years. Moreover, an inordinate number of these recruits work in highly politically sensitive fields, wielding considerable control over how its products work and what the world sees on its screens and in its search results. Chief amongst these is the trust and safety department, whose staff, in the words of then Google Trust and Safety Vice President Kristie Canegallo, “[d]ecide what content is allowed on our platform” — in other words, setting the rules of the internet, determining what billions see and what they do not see. Before Google, Canegallo had been President Obama’s Deputy White House Chief of Staff for Implementation and is currently Chief of Staff at the Department of Homeland Security… This continues to this day, with the CIA promoting dubious stories about the so-called “Havana Syndrome” and how the Russian government was supposedly offering m-ney to the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers. Mike Pompeo, former director of the CIA, admitted as much in a talk he gave in 2019. He said to the audience at Texas A&M University: “When I was a cadet, what’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. We had entire training courses [on] it!”
Joe Biden met with at least 14 of Hunter’s business associates while vice president –Joe Biden has repeatedly denied discussing business with his son | 28 July 2022 | President [sic] Biden met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden’s business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House, casting further doubt on the president’s repeated claims that he had no knowledge of his son’s foreign business dealings. “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said in 2019. But the president met with at least 14 of Hunter’s business associates from the U.S., Mexico, Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan over the course of his vice presidency, a Fox News Digital review found.
GDP fell 0.9% in the second quarter, the second straight decline and a strong recession signal | 28 July 2022 | The U.S. economy contracted for the second straight quarter from April to June, hitting a widely accepted rule of thumb for a recession, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Thursday. Gross domestic product fell 0.9% at an annualized pace for the period, according to the advance estimate. That follows a 1.6% decline in the first quarter and was worse than the Dow Jones estimate for a gain of 0.3%. Officially, the National Bureau of Economic Research declares recessions and expansions, and likely won’t make a judgment on the period in question for months if not longer. But a second straight negative GDP reading meets a long-held basic view of recession, despite the unusual circumstances of the decline and regardless of what the NBER decides.
