Paying twice to die once: U.S. government agencies may have been double-billed for projects in Wuhan, China, records indicate; probe launched –Sources told CBS News that tens of millions of dollars could be involved. | 13 March 2023 | The U.S. government may have made duplicate payments for projects at labs in Wuhan, China, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), according to records reviewed by CBS News. “What I’ve found so far is evidence that points to double billing, potential theft of government funds. It is concerning, especially since it involves dangerous pathogens and risky research,” said Diane Cutler, a former federal investigator with over two decades of experience combating white-collar crime and healthcare fraud. Cutler found evidence of possible double payments as she investigated U.S. government grants that supported high risk research in China leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic. She was hired by Republican Sen. Roger Marshall, who took her records to USAID and the internal watchdog at USAID, which launched a new probe, details of which have not been previously reported.

While some documents have been turned over during the course of the coronavirus pandemic, UNC filed a motion to dismiss late last week seeking to prevent the release of some documents being sought by USRTK. USRTK opted to sue after UNC refused to turn over certain documents sought via public records requests, citing a research exception under the Public Records Act.
Connecticut church sues over school vaccine mandate: ‘We will obey God first’ –Connecticut has altered vaccine mandate to remove any exemptions except those based on medical issues | 14 March 2023 | A church in Milford, Connecticut, is filing suit against the state government, claiming its First Amendment rights have been violated by a vaccination mandate. In 2021, the state of Connecticut altered a law titled “An Act Concerning Immunizations” to remove all exemptions to vaccination requirements except medical instances. Milford Christian Church refused to compel students in its pre-K program and K-12 Academy to get a vaccine, claiming it violated its religious conscience to mandate the injections. The state informed Milford Christian Church “that they had a choice between compelling their students to vaccinate, expelling them if they didn’t, or facing the forceable state closure,” according to attorney Cameron Atkinson, who is representing the church. “Our message to the state is clear. We will obey God first,” Atkinson told reporters at a press conference Friday.
Madness of vaccine mandates in colleges: Ivy League universities that charge up to $75k a year are STILL refusing to teach students in-person who are not up to date with their Covid vaccines – with Harvard demanding up to FIVE –Students must receive a bivalent booster dose on top of their other Covid shots –If they don’t without exemption, they will not be able to access in-person classes –Most Americans with bivalent booster are not protected against latest variant | 10 March 2023 | Ivy League schools are still refusing to teach students in-person who are not up to date with their Covid vaccines [mRNA clot shots] — in a move slammed as “senseless” and “non-scientific.” Harvard, Yale, Columbia and Pennsylvania have the most stringent mandates that make having the new bivalent booster a condition of entry. This means students at those schools who have already received four of the older shots would still need to get the new shot to continue their studies.The rest of the Ivy League universities demand at least two Covid jabs, with some requiring a booster too. Multiple experts told DailyMail dot com the mandate “does not make sense” now that evidence shows the vaccines do not prevent transmission.
Autopsy Suggests Link Between COVID-19 Vaccine and Encephalitis in Brain in Case of German Death | 3 March 2023 | A case study reported in the peer-viewed journal Vaccine found that a patient who had Parkinson’s Disease and who died after receiving his third Covid-19 vaccination had developed necrotizing encephalitis in the brain and spike proteins from the vaccine were present in the location of the inflammation. The paper said that while “numerous” cases of encephalitis “have been reported in connection with the gene-based COVID-19 vaccines,” this was “the first report to demonstrate the presence of the spike protein within the encephalitic lesions and to attribute it to vaccination rather than infection.” Dr Michael Mörz, a researcher in Pathology at Hospital Dresden-Friedrichstadt, in Germany, wrote that the family of a 76-year-old patient with Parkinson’s Disease, who died three weeks after receiving his third Covid-19 vaccination, had “requested an autopsy due to ambiguous clinical signs before death.” The patient was first vaccinated in May 2021 with the Astra Zeneca vector vaccine, followed by two doses of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine in July and December 2021.
Biden emphasizes U.S. banking system is safe | 13 March 2023 | Joe Biden addressed the nation Monday to assure Americans that the banking system is safe after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. In his speech, he highlighted the immediate action that his administration has taken. Customers’ deposits will be protected: Customers will “have access to their money as of today. That includes small businesses across the country that bank there and need to make payroll, pay their bills and stay open for business,” Biden said, adding that no losses will be suffered by the taxpayers. “Instead, the money will come from the fees that banks pay into the deposit insurance fund,” he explained. The management of these banks will be fired: “If the bank is taken over by FDIC, the people running the bank should not work there anymore,” Biden said. Investors in the banks will not be protected: “They knowingly took a risk and when the risk didn’t pay off, investors lose their money. That’s how capitalism works,” Biden added.

What is known about the Black Sea drone incident –A US Reaper drone has crashed off the coast of Crimea, while on a spy mission | 14 March 2023 | The US and other NATO countries have been flying spy missions just outside Russian airspace for more than a year, providing intelligence and other information to Ukraine while insisting they were not directly involved in the conflict. Where did this happen? Neither the US nor Russia gave any coordinates for the incident. The Americans argued the drone was “operating within international airspace” over the Black Sea. The Russians said the drone was inside the restricted airspace established for the special military operation, of which everyone was properly notified months ago. Unconfirmed reports in the Russian media put the drone’s location about 60 kilometers (37 miles) southwest of the Crimean port of Sevastopol. What kind of drone was it? The MQ-9 Reaper was developed from the original MQ-1 Predator. The US military described it as an “Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance” (ISR) platform.

Those who answered: President Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence, Gov. Ron DeSantis (FL), Gov. Kristi Noem (SD), Greg Abbott (TX), Sen. Tim Scott (SC), former Gov. Chris Christie [also useless] (NJ) and Ohio businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. President Trump called for peace in Europe (but not at any price) and for regime change at home.

Distinguishing men from women and believing God created only two genders, he suggested, eventually led authorities to arrest and charge him for the offense. [This is where we are, folks. This is where we are. Unless we start fighting back, we’re done.]

San Francisco considers reparations proposal to give $5 million per black person –Progressive city’s Board of Supervisors meeting to debate reparations recommendations despite backlash | 14 March 2023 | The Board of Supervisors can vote to adopt all, none, or some of the committee’s recommendations and even change them. Tuesday’s hearing was originally scheduled for last month but was postponed. An estimated 50,000 black people live in San Francisco, but it’s unclear who among them would be eligible for reparations. Under the committee’s draft reparations plan, a person must be at least 18 years old and identified as “Black/African American” in public documents for at least 10 years. Eligible people must also meet two of eight other criteria, such as living in San Francisco during a certain time period or descending from someone incarcerated for the police war on drugs [?]. Regardless of what the criteria might ultimately become, several board members have expressed concerns about how large lump-sum payments would impact the city’s budget, which is already facing a massive estimated deficit of 728 million.

Apparently they didn’t get the message that we were supposed to be tripled billed to cover the Big Guy. Hunter is all over this and will get it corrected shortly.
