People often think they know what causes chronic depression. Surveys indicate that more than 80% of the public blames a “chemical imbalance” in the brain. That idea is widespread in pop psychology and cited in research papers and medical textbooks. Listening to Prozac, a book that describes the life-changing value of treating depression with medications that aim to correct this imbalance, spent months on the New York Times bestseller list.
The unbalanced brain chemical in question is serotonin, an important neurotransmitter with fabled “feel-good” effects. Serotonin helps regulate systems in the brain that control everything from body temperature and sleep to sex drive and hunger. For decades, it has also been touted as the pharmaceutical MVP for fighting depression. Widely prescribed medications like Prozac (fluoxetine) are designed to treat chronic depression by raising serotonin levels.
Yet the causes of depression go far beyond serotonin deficiency. Clinical studies have repeatedly concluded that the role of serotonin in depression has been overstated. Indeed, the entire premise of the chemical-imbalance theory may be wrong, despite the relief that Prozac seems to bring to many patients.
Five former Memphis Police Department officers are in custody and face several charges after their involvement in the death of a 29-year-old male, who died earlier this month in a hospital days after a confrontation with authorities.
In their latest undercover investigation, Project Veritas and James O’Keefe expose a Pfizer employee that claims his company is purposefully manipulating the COVID-19 virus to create more vaccines.
He calls COVID a “cash cow.”
Things get incredibly heated when O’Keefe confronts the man, Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer’s director of research and development, strategic operations – mRNA scientific planner. Walker ends up melting down, trying to trap the Project Veritas team in the restaurant, and trashing their iPad in a panic.
“You work for Pfizer,” O’Keefe said to Walker. “My question for you is, why does Pfizer wanna hide from the public the fact that they’re mutating the COVID viruses?”
“Is this real life?” a shocked Walker replied. “This is absurd.”

Democrats are notorious for fighting against any change that seeks to clean up confusing voting laws or registration rolls.
Any state that wishes to change the laws will often find the liberals challenging the changes in court. And the turnout of such challenges usually ends up being based on whether the judge is liberal or conservative.
The Gateway Pundit reported that liberals set up a system “in 2012, the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) was formed as a membership organization primarily for blue States. ERIC is essentially a left-wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean-up. But it’s been gaining traction in the Red States too. Originally funded by the Soros Open Society, it is now responsible for cleaning the voter rolls in 31 States, plus DC. A top election official from each member State is appointed a seat on the ERIC Board or as an Officer, all unpaid positions.”
The goal was clean up rolls in a way that favored the liberal left. Any deviation from the established method would be frowned upon.
What is it with these top Democrats and their stealing and leaking of classified documents?
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday officially rejected the appointments of Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell for the House Intelligence Committee.
“I am committed to returning the House Intel Committee to one of genuine honesty and credibility that regains the trust of the American people,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy went off on Schiff to lefty reporters on Tuesday evening after he removed the serial liar from the House Intel Committee.
This was not a surprise move. McCarthy said he would remove Schiff from the committee for weeks now. Schiff was caught numerous time leaking classified material and testimony. He also was caught lying about classified information. The man is a danger to society.
Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, physically assaulted James O’Keefe and Veritas staffers on Thursday.
James O’Keefe confronted Walker at a restaurant and showed him the undercover recordings about Pfizer’s plans to potentially mutate the Covid virus.
“You f*cked up!” Walker shouted before destroying the iPad showing the PV undercover recordings about the “mutating” Covid virus.
Project Veritas on Wednesday night released explosive video of Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations, admitting the pharma giant is exploring ‘mutating’ Covid-19 via ‘directed evolution’ so the company can continue to profit off of vaccines.
“One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f**king viruses,” Walker told the undercover Project Veritas journalist.
“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them,” he said in the undercover recordings.
Five ex-Memphis police officers were charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping on Thursday in the death of a black motorist.

The Biden Regime has consistently demonstrated that conservatives are their primary enemies and will utilize various tools to silence them. A report today from Just The News claims the Regime is now adopting tactics formerly used against the Islamic State to censor conservatives.
According to the report, the Regime is colluding with Big Tech, private firms, and academia to use military-grade artificial intelligence to identify so-called “misinformation” online and replace it with the Regime’s preferred narrative. This project is primarily focused on patriots concerned about stolen elections and the safety of vaccines.
In a major victory for free speech and individual rights, a California judge has issued a preliminary injunction against a controversial new law aimed at combating COVID-19 misinformation.
The law, known as AB 2098, would have allowed the California Medical Board to discipline doctors who spread false or misleading information about the virus.
Critics of the law have argued that it would have a chilling effect on free speech, effectively muzzling doctors and other medical professionals who may have dissenting views on the virus and its treatment. In a statement, the judge said that the law "raises serious First Amendment concerns" and that there was a "likelihood of success" in the plaintiffs' case against it.
