DOJ opens the settlement spigot

BattleswarmBlog President Biden’s Department of Justice appears to be rebuilding a dubious money chain known as “settlement slush funds.” The Obama DOJ used these funds to channel cash from corporate settlements to bankroll private progressive organizations, circumventing the budget and oversight authority of Congress.

On May 5, Attorney General Merrick Garland revoked a Trump-era rule that specifically prohibited the DOJ from directing funds from corporate settlements to finance third-party organizations and causes. The use of these so-called settlement slush funds became so rampant under the Obama administration that the House passed the Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act in 2017 in an attempt to end it. A similar bill was introduced in the Senate but failed to pass.

Under the Obama Justice Department, corporate fines were directed to organizations including the Sierra Club, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, and the National Council of La Raza.

So, basically, the DOJ is shaking down corporations for donations to leftist (and ONLY leftist) activist groups. This should certainly be illegal and is absolutely a violation of the First Amendment. But the leftists don't care.

Everything according to plan

Robert MaloneI almost cannot believe that I am writing this, but since my original substack article on this topic, we had the reveal of an Event 201-style wargame exercise modeled around a bioterror-related release of an engineered Monkeypox virus “caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory with inadequate biosafety and biosecurity provisions and weak oversight.” With amazing (coincidental?) prescience, the “table top exercise” of March 2021 (one year and three months into the Covidcrisis) models a Monkeypox bioterror attack initiated on May 15, 2022. Note the date of the CNN/Jake Tapper fearporn piece - May 20, 2022. The modeling deployed in the scenario upon which the “exercise” was based predicts 3.2 billion cases and 271 million deaths by December 01, 2023. Of course, the predictive accuracy of the simplistic public health models such as that used to support this scenario have repeatedly proven to be absolutely horrid, and these types of models should be either relegated to the trash heap (or ongoing dumpster fire) as unscientific speculation which is all too frequently weaponized by the fearporn peddlers such as CNN, MSNBC, NYT, Washington Post. By now we all know the usual USG and WEF-controlled media players.

Multiple cases were soon detected in Portugal, and to their great credit, INSA Portugal got busy and promptly did the deep sequencing necessary to enable building a phylogenic map of the Monkeypox variant associated with the outbreak.

Based on their findings, they have rapidly disclosed both their data as well as a series of startling hypothesis regarding the origin of the currently circulating Monkeypox (West African Clade) Monkeypox. Cutting to the chase, having reviewed their data and paper, I now have to conclude that one of the many “working hypotheses” concerning the origin of this particular virus must be that it is the product of laboratory-based manipulation - precisely as previously modeled by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI):Bio/Munich Security Conference . True story. Truth continues to be stranger than fiction.

I told you so.

To everyone who says we need new red flag laws...

New York PostDisturbing new video obtained by The Post shows demented Robb Elementary School shooter Salvador Ramos grinning as he holds up a bag of blood-soaked dead cats.

The deranged 18-year-old gunman is seen smiling in the undated footage while sitting in the passenger seat of a pal’s car — holding up a clear plastic bag with at least two bloodied cats visible inside.

The Uvale murderer carried around dead cats in a plastic bag and liked to show them off to get a reaction from people. And somehow, he was able to legally buy two rifles he had no business being able to afford. Does anyone really think adding more laws would help when the multitude of actual crimes committed by this murderer were blatantly ignored?

If the police -- local, state, federal, even Interpol -- had wanted to stop this killer, they had every reason and legal justification they could possibly want to do so.

Faulty COVID tests resulted in 100K false positives

Gateway PunditA US medical company is suing Chinese manufacturer Anhui DeepBlue who manufactured and distributed to the United States more than 100,000 defective antibody tests that showed false-positive results, according to American Military News.

AnyPlaceMD sued the Chinese medical technology company after two years “in an effort to recover nearly half a million dollars it lost buying defective tests.”

That's a lot of false positives, which coincides with the desire to incite panic in the population. Hmm...

WHO already has a contract for a vaccine passport system

Gateway PunditIf the ratifications are agreed to this week, the WHO would also be granted sole authority over what constitutes a pandemic. And, as we have seen over the past two years, just about anything qualifies as an ‘existential threat to public health’ including, but not limited to: misinformation, parents protesting at school boards, free speech, and – of course – racism. The fact that the WHO is on the cusp of unrestricted authority to decide these measures should terrify every American.

What’s more, the changes also include plans for a mandatory and universal vaccine passport system that’s overseen by the WHO. In fact, the globalist organization has already contracted a German-based company, called ‘T-Systems’, to develop the technology.

They’re that confident the measures will be approved.

The panic over COVID has mostly passed without permanent damage to freedom. Yes, many citizens are still suffering from the induced psychosis, but even that is fading. Some of the electoral changes are still in play, which is a problem for people who want honest elections, but those are also facing challeges.

Seeking to seize power through a medical treaty that does not have to face citizen approval is a logical way to lock their election fraud mechanisms in place permanently.

How do we stop it? I'm not sure. Do the changes need ratification, or implementing regulations? The former would have to go through the Senate with 67 votes, so probably not going to happen. Implementing regulations would probably only need to go through the Biden Admin, and would need those same 67 votes (in the Senate) for Congress to override Biden. So expect to see regulations citing the WHO treaty imposing election dropboxes and other fraud-enabling mechanisms nationally as the midterms approach.

Fighting those regulations is likely best done via the state legislatures, which have Constitutional authority here.

Good guys with guns stop active shooters

Daily SignalThe FBI announced Monday that citizens stopped six active shooters in 2021, according to a report on active shooting incidents.

Citizens stopped six active shooters, whom the FBI defines as “one or more individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area,” in 2021, killing four of them, according to the report “Active Shooter Incidents In The United States In 2021.” There were 61 active shooter incidents in 2021, 12 of which met the FBI’s criteria for a “mass killing,” up from 40 the previous year.

The police prefer to spend an hour putting together a tactical stack while kids die.

Video evidence of ballot mules in MI

Gateway PunditIn the video, two women are seen walking through a parking lot at 10:40 AM on November 2, 2020 (the day before the election) at the Heilmann Recreation Center satellite voting center in Detroit. The woman wearing a green sweater carries a large stack of what appears to be absentee ballots as she walks toward a drop box. The woman accompanying her is wearing medical scrubs (possible nurse, nursing home employee, or costume), and as she gets closer to the drop box, she reaches into the pants pocket of her scrubs and pulls out a cell phone. Once they arrive at the drop box, the woman in the green sweater begins to drop the absentee ballot envelopes into the slot on the drop box, as the woman wearing the scrubs positions her cellphone over the woman’s hands, as she appears to film the activity.

Will anything be done about this? I doubt it.

New finding: 20K illegal ballots counted in Maricopa AZ

Gateway PunditA new Maricopa County 2020 election report from Verity Vote used public records requests to discover that more than 20,000 ballots were illegally counted.

Arizona’s 2020 Presidential Election was decided by less than 10,500 votes.

After numerous records requests and months of waiting for responses, Verity Vote found that Maricopa County received and counted tens of thousands of ballots after the election day deadline.

If they came in after the deadline, they were not valid and should not have been counted.

GA brings in federal "coordinators" for "school safety"

Just The NewsGeorgia is working to create Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams throughout the state as a part of a broader school safety effort.

Eight regional Homeland Security Coordinators, all sworn law enforcement officers, will lead the teams and respond to threats or concerning behavior that may be considered a pathway to violence. The BTATs will provide help and guidance to local schools and communities to mitigate potential threats.

Gov. Brian Kemp divulged the effort as part of a school safety update he released in the wake of a shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

Threats? Fine, if they are really threats. But for federal agents, "concerning behavior" is a very broad brush with which to paint.

DOJ won't charge FBI in olympic gymnast child abuse scandal

Just The NewsThe Department of Justice on Thursday announced it will not bring charges against the former FBI agents who botched the investigation into former U.S. women's national gymnastics team Dr. Larry Nassar, who was sentenced to prison in 2018 for the sexual assault of some of America's top gymnasts.

The DOJ Inspector General wrote that while the two former officials likely provided "inaccurate or incomplete information," more is required to file criminal charges, The Associated Press reported.

The FBI fired one agent while the other retired.

The FBI gets another pass.

I didn't follow the details closely but it sure sounded like more than a botched investigation to me.

SC returns abortion to the States

Gateway PunditThe Supreme Court has sided with the state of Mississippi and overturned Roe v. Wade.

The opinion was written by Justice Samuel Alito.

Laws related to abortion will now be returned to the states to decide.

Abortion has always been an uncomfortable issue for me. As someone who could easily have been a victim of one, I know there are other options and I hope mothers choose those other options instead of killing their unborn children. I have long recognized that Roe v Wade was horribly decided and needed to be overturned, while being uncomfortable forcing my own moral views on others, and also acknowledging that the fact that two lives are involved changes that moral calculus.

Also, recently, the left has shifted from the position that abortion should be "safe, legal, and rare" to actively celebrating abortion in the manner of the death cults of Moloch. That shift demands a response.

I have, generally, sought to avoid participating in the debate. I intend to continue that policy.

But I do welcome this decision as both Constitutionally and morally correct.

Gun rights protest in Raleigh

Only guns and moneyGiven Sen. Thom Tillis’ (R-NC) role in the GOP capitulation on gun control, Grass Roots North Carolina is holding a peaceful protest outside his Raleigh office on Friday, June 24th. They were able to get Stephen Willeford, the hero of the Sutherland Springs, Texas attack, to attend as the featured speaker. Mr. Willeford is now the National Spokesman for Gun Owners of America.

The event will be from 10am until 1pm outside the Terry Sanford Federal Building in Raleigh.

If you live in the Piedmont or can get to Raleigh on the 24th, please be there. Remember, it is politicians like Tillis who are the reason the GOP is known as “the stupid party”.

It's too late to stop the legislation. They moved fast on this one. Really fast.

Senate passes gun control bill

Just The NewsThe Senate on Thursday passed the first significant firearms legislation in decades in the wake of two mass shootings earlier this year.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act was passed by a 65-33 vote just hours after the U.S. Supreme Court issued an historic ruling that states and communities can't infringe the right of Americans to carry firearms in public.

All 50 Democrats supported the legislation, as well as Republican Sens. Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Shelly Moore Capito, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, John Cornyn, Joni Ernst, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Thom Tillis, Pat Toomey, and Todd Young.

Sens. Blunt, Burr, Toomey and Portman, are retiring at the end of this year, while only Indiana Sen. Young and Alaska Sen. Murkowski face reelection this November.

Gun owners have long memories. There will be a political cost, even if a delayed one. The leadership of the Republican party in the Senate has finally made its position clear to the voters.

Furthermore, the recent Supreme Court decision makes it clear that gun control laws are on very thin ground Constitutionally. The part of this law applying special rules to those under 21 seeking to buy guns will likely be struck down. So will any parts of the law that remove gun rights without due process, meaning the red flag components are at serious risk. Still, these corrections from the Supreme Court take time and are never certain.

No one wants the COVID vaccine

Daily Wire“It’s sad to say, I’m in the process of throwing 30 million doses into the garbage because nobody wants them,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said this week. “We have a big demand problem.”

“In all, we see vaccine hesitancy driven by misinformation and disinformation,” Ghebreyesus said. “The pandemic will not magically disappear. But we can end it. We have the knowledge. We have the tools. Science has given us the upper hand,” he said, calling on countries to work together to reach 70% of vaccination coverage.

Ghebreyesus also said the virus is staying ahead of vaccines. “This virus has surprised us at every turn – a storm that has torn through communities again and again, and we still can’t predict its path, or its intensity,” he said.

No one wants them because they don't work.

Biden pushing for state level gun control

The Truth About GunsThe Biden-Harris administration is telling sympathetic Democratic governors to pass more gun control legislation with the apparent belief that if more states pass restrictive anti-gun bills, it will be easier for the administration to push for similar legislation at the federal level.

The White House has already contacted governors in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut, California and Delaware. The bills they have come up with are similar in concept and some even use similar language. The legislation usually includes 21+ age restrictions for firearm purchasers, red flag bills as well as “assault weapon” and standard-capacity magazine bans.

Nowhere have gun owners been hit harder than in Biden’s home state of Delaware, where a bill that would prohibit magazines capable of holding more than 17 rounds and a bill that would outlaw most semi-auto rifles are awaiting Gov. John Carney’s signature, after flying through the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.

After Republicans in the Senate caved, they sense weakness and are pushing for everything they can get.

Supreme Court rules in favor of 2nd Amendment in New York case

DivemedicaSCOTUS releases decision in NY pistol case, ruling that New York’s means test is unconstitutional

We'll get a lot of detailed commentary as people read the case, but the bottom line is that ordinary people won. The Supreme Court declared that New York's rules about carrying firearms and specifically their rules about who qualified for a license to do so were unconstitutional. New York pistol permits have a lot of discretion involved, and it was -- until this ruling -- very difficult for an ordinary person to get one. Celebrities, police, armed security, politicians and their donors, sure. Ordinary people not so much.

Decision here.

"[We] will be a bit poorer" due to inflation, energy costs, says Dutch PM

CNBCDutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Wednesday said there is a “limit to what a government can do” to help people amid surging inflation.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Rutte told CNBC’s Steve Sedgewick that the Dutch government would help people on lower and lower-middle class incomes with their rising energy bills.

However, he added that “you cannot help everyone so ... we in the West will be a bit poorer because of the high inflation, the high energy costs.”

Inflation hit 9.6% in the Netherlands in April, according to the Dutch statistics body CBS. This was slightly lower than the 9.7% inflation recorded in March, though it remained historically high.

How do we get high inflation? Massive government spending funded by creating money out of thin air (Modern Monetary Theory) combined with shutting down production for two years and screwed up supply chain preventing goods from getting to the marketplace. Oh, and triple or quadruple energy costs.

How do you get high energy costs? Stop drilling for oil and provoke Russia into invading Ukraine, resulting in sanctions on Russian oil supplies, all in service of a great transition away from fossil fuels that is literally impossible to achieve, while increasing regulations on everything. Inflation is when more money chases fewer goods. The Biden Admin is doing everything it can to produce fewer goods and spend more money.

Coming up next? Shortages, followed shortly by "real Communism", by which I mean mass starvation.

Republicans blow the midterms by voting for gun control

Gateway PunditRepublican Senators John Cornyn of Texas, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky are so far on board with the gun control legislation.

Just a few hours after the text of the legislation became available, mostly Democrats plus the ten Republicans above voted to advance the bill.

Passing this legislation, which now seems likely, would be a dramatic betrayal of the Republican base, no doubt motivated in part by the idea that the NRA's troubles have neutralized gun owners as a political force.

If any of the Senators on the list belong to you, or happen to be Democrat swing votes, you have at most a few days to write or call to tell them to block this bill.

Gateway PunditThe law would prohibit a misdemeanor domestic violence offender with a "current or recent former dating relationship with the victim" from purchasing or owning a firearm.

The definition of a "dating relationship" will be determined by the court, and offenders will automatically regain their ability to buy and own guns after five years if they do not commit any disqualifying offenses.

What this means in practice is that if you date someone once, they can bar you from owning or possessing guns for 5 years.

How red flag laws actually work. And, you know, they probably work to make squish RINO Republicans lose elections, too.

Oh, and anyone under 21 who tries to buy a gun gets a waiting period during which the FBI can search "confidential databases"... in other words, the NSA's ongoing 1st and 4th amendment violations will be weaponized to target young conservatives who want to own guns.

New ballot data in Fulton County GA

UncoverDCAll eyes are on Georgia today as voters head to the polls to vote in primaries across the state to select who will appear on the general election ballot in November. While today’s election focuses on the state’s future, Georgia remains embroiled in controversy and discrepancies surrounding the 2020 general election, which saw a scant 11,779 votes out of nearly 5 million separating Joe Biden and Donald Trump in the final tally for the 2020 presidential election. With an irregular recount and a “nothing to see here” audit affirming Joe Biden as the winner in 2020’s critical race, Fulton County remains a focal point in the crucial swing state’s ongoing election debacle. One area in need of attention is the county’s machine count.

Indeed, significant deficiencies persist in the recount of machine votes in Fulton County. With a detailed report in Gov. Brian Kemp’s possession for the past two weeks, the governor’s office has been verifying the data outlining the shocking findings presented by Kevin Moncla and Mr. Joseph Rossi. As his office continues to review the information, below is a summary of the Moncla and Rossi’s report sitting on Gov. Brian Kemp’s desk.

There are enough phantom ballots -- no ballot images and no tabulator logs, but nonetheless counted in both the official 2020 results and the machine recount -- at issue in this one report for one county to change the election results. And that, I believe, is exactly what happened.
