He and Jill Biden arrived for a photo-op at a vaccination site in Brooklyn, New York on Monday, but they were met with crowds of protesters.

The demonstrators could be heard booing upon the arrival of their caravan and could be heard chanting “fire Fauci!”

Those in attendance were demanding that the NIH director be reprimanded for lying about the origins and the lethality of COVID-19 as well as his role in the gain of function experiments.

The protesters said Dr. Fauci’s emails show he was aiding and abetting the cover-up of COVID-19 to advance a malicious political agenda in an effort to derail President Trump.

Sen. Cruz: Facebook Could Be Liable for Virus Censorship

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says Facebook could be taken to court by those users who had their posts—which were about the virus originating in a leak from the Wuhan lab—censored.

That’s because recent emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci show that he talked with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. From that point on, Facebook started censoring information about the Wuhan lab and a potential leak of the virus—but then they changed their rules.

The Climate Censors

Before Facebook censored it, my video, “Are We Doomed”, got more 24 million views.

Now Facebook won’t show it to many people — not even to my subscribers. Facebook’s also punishing Stossel TV by showing our other videos less.

All because Facebook foolishly gave Emmanuel Vincent, a recent PhD graduate from France, the power to censor.

Vincent assembled a group of like-minded scientists into a group called Climate Feedback climatefeedback.org that declared parts of my video “misleading,” or “partially false.”

A group of Richmond residents who own property near the statue and a descendant of signatories to an 1890 deed filed separate lawsuits. The deed transferred the statue, pedestal, and ground on to the state, according to the Associated Press.

In one of the lawsuits, William Gregory argued the state agreed to “faithfully guard” and “affectionately protect” the Robert E. Lee statue. 

In the other lawsuit, five property owners say their ancestors have previously agreed to maintain a statue of Lee and that the governor can’t break it.

They claimed Northam’s order exceeded the governor’s authority under the Virginia Constitution and an 1889 joint resolution.

In the complaint filed in Fulton County State Court on Monday, Turner’s grieving parents alleged that city leaders failed to protect their daughter amid the violent riots that rocked the city in the aftermath of Rayshard Brooks’ death.

The complaint cited numerous failures by city leaders, “including that they were negligent in their duties by failing to remove armed vigilantes who had gathered alongside peaceful protesters at the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Secoriea, who was a rising third-grader, was tragically killed on July 4 when she and her mother encountered a group of armed rioters who had blocked a street near where Brooks was killed.

Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) suspended Cross less than 48 hours after he dared to speak out against LCPS Policy 8040 and the proposed changes to LCPS Policy 8350, which would require teachers to refer to students by preferred gender pronouns, rather than the pronouns that correspond to a student’s biological sex as male or female.

Cross referenced the 60 Minutes segment on detransitioners in order to highlight the danger of transgender ideology. In pursuit of false gender identities, men and women have permanently mutilated their bodies, only to later reject the transgender identity.

“It’s not my intention to hurt anyone, but there are certain truths that we must face when ready,” Cross insisted.

The DTRA funds to EcoHealth Alliance were documented by Independent Science News in a December 2020 spreadsheet and since reported by the Daily Caller.

The spreadsheet documents funds from the DTRA going to EcoHealth Alliance beginning in 2013 and continuing into 2020.

The Daily Caller reported five of the DTRA payments to EcoHealth Alliance are still active.

EcoHealth Alliance president, Peter Daszak, has also been one of the most outspoken critics of the theory that COVID-19 leaked from the WIV and may had a key role in shaping early intelligence community assessments on the origins of the virus.

Global sting: Secure FBI-run messaging network tricks crooks

The operation known as Trojan Shield led to police raids in 16 nations. More than 800 suspects were arrested and more than 32 tons of drugs — including cocaine, cannabis, amphetamines and methamphetamines — were seized along with 250 firearms, 55 luxury cars and more than $148 million in cash and cryptocurrencies.

The seeds of the sting were sown in 2018 when law enforcement agencies took down a company called Phantom Secure that provided customized end-to-end encrypted devices to criminals, according to court papers.

Unlike typical cell phones, the devices don’t make phone calls or browse the internet — but allow for secure messaging.

As an outgrowth of the operation, the FBI also recruited a collaborator who was developing a next-generation secure-messaging platform for the criminal underworld called ANOM. The collaborator engineered the system to give the agency access to any messages being sent.

A court at London’s Old Bailey heard Tuesday that Wayne Couzens, 48, accepted responsibility for the death of Sarah Everard though he was not asked to enter a plea to a charge of murder.

Members of Everard’s family sat in court to witness the defendant enter his pleas.

Everard, a 33-year-old marketing executive, went missing as she walked home from a friend’s house in Clapham, south London, on March 3.

A major police investigation was launched and her body was found a week later in a woodland in the county of Kent, more than 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of London.

Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave said it was “deeply disturbing” that a fellow officer was arrested.
