Pentagon can’t account for $220 billion in gov’t property, fails fifth audit | 18 Jan 2023 | A Tuesday report by the Government Accountability Office revealed that the Department of Defense failed its fifth audit in a row after it could not account for at least $220 billion in government-furnished property, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported. The DOD has been mandated by federal law to complete audits since 1994; however, the mandate was ignored for decades due to the agency’s massive size, according to Military dot com. Since launching its first independent audit, in 2017 the Pentagon has never passed. The Pentagon failed its fifth audit in November after the agency could not prove expenditures for 61% of its 3.5 trillion in assets. To perform this year’s overall audit of the DOD, which was expected to cost 218 million, the agency aggregated 27 separate audits conducted by approximately 1,600 auditors. According to Military.com, the auditors performed 220 in-person site visits and 750 virtual site visits.
U.S. may assist Ukrainian strikes on Crimea – NYT | 19 Jan 2023 | The U.S. government is weighing whether to supply Ukraine with the capability to attack the strategically important Crimean Peninsula, according to the New York Times.

Ukraine may get another Patriot battery –Dutch PM promised to “join” the US and Germany on the “Patriot project” | 18 Jan 2023 | Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has announced that the Netherlands agreed to send Kiev one of its missile defense systems, even as Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte remained extremely vague and avoided making any specific commitments. “We have the intention to join what you are doing with Germany on the Patriot project,” Rutte told Joe Biden ahead of their meeting at the White House on Tuesday, offering no details besides that he already discussed the issue with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Rutte previously told public broadcaster NOS that the “idea is not only training but also equipment,” though the country’s military has yet to review “what exactly we have, how can we ensure that it works well with the American and German systems.”
Russia moves to leave European treaties | 17 Jan 2023 | President Vladimir Putin instructed Russian lawmakers on Tuesday to adopt a law that would formally end the country’s participation in 21 treaties and charters related to the Council of Europe.

Putin has formally submitted the bill on terminating the treaties to State Duma chair Vyacheslav Volodin, following the provisions of a 1995 federal law. Among the 21 treaties that will cease to apply to Russia is the charter of the Council of Europe (CoE), the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the European Convention for the Suppression of Terrorism, the European Charter of Local Self-Government, and the European Social Charter. The CoE will also lose the immunities and privileges granted by the charter.

Pentagon Not Pursuing Back Pay for Those Dismissed Due to COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate | 17 Jan 2023 | The Department of Defense indicated on Tuesday it is not going to consider back pay for troops discharged due to having refused to take a COVID-19 vaccine amid mandates that were recently lifted. At a press briefing, Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder was asked by a reporter whether the Pentagon was still “actively exploring” providing back pay or reinstatement to the separated service members. “In terms of back pay, you’re talking specifically on COVID vaccination? What I would tell you is right now, we are not currently pursuing back pay to service members who were dismissed for refusing to take the COVID vaccination,” Ryder responded. He did not provide any comment on reinstatement. More than 8,000 service members have been discharged for refusing the vaccine.
FAA Quietly Indicates U.S. Pilots’ Hearts Are Damaged After Taking Vaccines | 17 Jan 2023 | A report from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) admits that the EKG’s of pilots are no longer normal. This report has been hidden by the FAA. Steve Kirsch released a report Tuesday where he shares some very disturbing information about the health of Americans and pilots flying us all around the world. According to Kirsch: “After the vaccine rolled out, the FAA secretly widened the EKG parameter range for pilots so they wouldn’t be grounded. It looks like the vax gave at least 50M Americans heart damage.” Kirsch also noted: “In the October 2022 version of the FAA Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, the FAA quietly widened the EKG parameters beyond the normal range (from a PR max of .2 to unlimited). And they didn’t widen the range by a little. They widened it by a lot. It was done after the vaccine rollout.”
CDC Knowingly Left Serious Adverse Events Off Post-Vaccination Surveys, Documents Show | 19 Jan 2023 | The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) didn’t include serious adverse events like heart inflammation on post-vaccination surveys even though the agency knew the issues could be linked to COVID-19 vaccines, documents show. Even before the surveys were rolled out in December 2020 after the first vaccines were authorized, the CDC knew that myocarditis–a form of heart inflammation since confirmed as being caused by the Pfizer and Moderna shots–and other serious adverse events were of “special interest” when it came to the vaccines, according to a newly disclosed version of the protocol for the survey system. The Nov. 19, 2020, protocol for V-safe, the survey system, lists myocarditis, stroke, death, and a dozen “prespecified medical conditions.” The protocol was obtained by the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a nonprofit that seeks transparency around health information. All of the conditions can cause severe symptoms.
Connecticut bill would let minors 12 and up get vaccines without parental consent | 18 Jan 2023 | A new bill introduced to the Connecticut state legislature (Connecticut General Assembly) would allow children ages 12 and up to receive vaccines without parental consent. Democratic state Rep. Kevin Ryan introduced the measure, which would amend Connecticut’s general statutes to give children 12 and older the right to access “vaccinations without the consent of a parent or guardian.” Currently, children under the age of 18 in Connecticut need a parent or guardian to give written or verbal consent to receive medical care, including vaccination. State Rep. Holly Cheeseman (R) expressed concerns to WTNH about what could happen if a child had an adverse side effect [not to mention, suddenly dropping dead] to a vaccine and the guardian was not aware they had received the shot. The proposed bill was referred Tuesday to the state legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Health, which will decide whether to move the legislation forward.
Omicron Subvariant XBB.1.5 Could Be More Likely to Infect Vaccinated – NYC Health Officials | 16 Jan 2023 | The Omicron XBB.1.5 variant of COVID-19 is more likely to infect individuals who have been vaccinated, according to New York City health officials. “Omicron subvariant XBB.1.5 now accounts for 73 percent of all sequenced COVID-19 cases in NYC. XBB.1.5 is the most transmissible form of COVID-19 that we know of to date and may be more likely to infect people who have been vaccinated or already had COVID-19,” the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene wrote on Twitter on Jan. 13. Despite this, the department [insanely] urged New Yorkers to get vaccinated and receive the updated COVID-19 booster shot, stating that doing so “is still the best way to protect yourself from hospitalization and death from COVID-19, including from these new variants.” …In an interview with Science News on Jan. 13, infectious diseases specialist Peter Chin-Hong of the University of California, San Francisco, stated that vaccinations are likely to provide just three months of protection against the XBB.1.5 variant of COVID-19.

Biden Signs on to ‘Declaration of North America’ (DNA) With Canada and Mexico – Is the Planned North America Union Making a Comeback? By Leo Hohmann | 16 Jan 2023 | Joe Biden met last week in Mexico City with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for the 10th North American Leaders’ Summit. The three leaders signed onto a document that looks like a prelude to a North American Union, which the globalists talked a lot about during the George W. Bush presidency. It looks like the push toward a merger of the U.S., Canada and Mexico may be back on the front burner if this document is any indication. The document attracted very little media attention since it was released on January 10, as the mainstream corporate press focused instead on classified documents found in Biden’s office and home… The stated goal of the document is to fortify the continent’s “security, prosperity, sustainability and inclusiveness.” The North American leaders, dubbed the “Three Amigos,” committed their countries to six “pillars,” all of which were taken straight from United Nations documents Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030.
Secret Service doesn’t record visitors at Biden’s ‘weekend White House’ where classified docs were found | 16 Jan 2023 | The Secret Service said Monday it does not track who comes and goes from Joe Biden’s Delaware residence where classified documents were improperly stored — despite Biden using the home as a weekend White House. Since taking office in January 2021, Biden has made 52 trips to the Wilmington house, spending all or part of 167 days there, according to a tally by The Post. Despite the frequency of the president’s [sic] trips home, Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told FoxNews dot com “we don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence.” Guglielmi’s statement goes beyond two previous claims made by the Secret Service last year to The Post in response to records requests for visitor information at Biden’s Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach homes.
Congressional Democrat Moves to End Free Speech for White People –Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has introduced legislation that will charge white people with federal “hate crimes” for questioning immigration, or criticizing non-whites. | 15 Jan 2023 | Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee has introduced legislation to Congress that would end free speech for white people in the United States, creating a new type of speech-based federal “hate crime” with which only white people can be charged. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023,” which, as the name suggests, would only be enforced against white people, makes it illegal for white people to question open-borders immigration, advocate for preserving America’s culture and traditional demographic make-up, or even criticize minorities… Under Jackson Lee’s legislation, merely posting online about the decline of American culture, at the hands of open borders immigration, could land a white person in federal prison. “A person engages in a white supremacy [sic] inspired hate crime when white supremacy ideology has motivated the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of actions that constituted a crime or were undertaken in furtherance of activity that, if effectuated, would have constituted a crime,” Jackson Lee’s bill reads, laying the groundwork for her all-out attack on white American’s constitutionally protected freedom of speech.
Supreme Court rejects New York gun retailers’ bid to block new concealed carry laws | 18 Jan 2023 | The Supreme Court rejected a bid by New York gun retailers on Wednesday to block a slew of new gun control laws in the state, which they argued violate their Second Amendment rights and hurt their businesses. There were no noted dissents in the order or explanations from the justices for their decision. “We are disappointed that not one of the nine justices saw fit to grant the plaintiffs some stay of enforcement of the new laws against them,” Paloma Capanna, the lead attorney for the New York gun retailers, told Fox News Digital on Wednesday… Wednesday’s order comes one week after the high court rejected a separate bid by gun rights activists to block the Concealed Carry Improvement Act, which was implemented last year by New York’s Democrat-controlled legislature.
