The United States is a country completely run by special interests in the Biopharmaceutical complex… big Pharma drives all policy decisions in Washington. Big Pharma makes a boat load of money off of gender reassignment surgeries… is it any wonder that the Biden administration is happy to go along with these horrific surgeries?

The National Weather Service warned of below zero temperatures in the Northeast and New England on Friday morning through Saturday, where wind chills could dip as low as negative 50 degrees due to a cold front moving from Canada.
'The wind chills have the potential to be [a] once in a generation cold late Friday into early Saturday,' the NWS warned.
Three men who visited a New York City gay bar were robbed of thousands of dollars using facial recognition access on their phones, the New York Police Department confirmed on Thursday.
The three men, who were in their late 30s and 40s, visited a Chelsea gay leather bar, The Eagle NYC, on separate nights in October and November and were each robbed of $1,000 to $5,000, according to the NYPD’s deputy commissioner of public information.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, authorities said.
Police believe the criminals used facial recognition to access the victims’ phones and funds once they were incapacitated, according to Capt. Robert Gault of the city’s 10th Precinct, who spoke about the incidents at a police community council meeting last week.
“What we think is happening with this scheme is they’re being lured away from the club, maybe to say, ‘Hey, you wanna come with me? I got some good drugs,’ or something like that,’” Gault said. “And then, once they get into a car to do whatever it is that they’re going to do, at some point or another, they don’t know what happened when they wake up.”
However, calls from overseas locations will sometimes get through. So, the folks at Social Catfish have compiled five area codes you should never answer a call from.
Area code 268 is associated with Antigua and Barbuda and is often used by crooks in scam operations.
Area code 876, in Jamaica, is often used in lottery scams and work-from-home fraud schemes.
Area codes 473 in Grenada, 649 in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and 284 in the British Virgin Islands are also known to be used by scammers in various kinds of fraud.
Calls coming from any of these area codes should generally be ignored, according to cyber security experts.

China’s foreign ministry has expressed regret over what it called a civilian balloon straying into United States airspace.
In a statement on Friday, the ministry said the balloon suspected by the US of conducting surveillance was a civilian “airship” used for research, mainly for meteorological purposes.
The statement said the airship has limited steering capability and “deviated far from its planned course” because of winds.
The Pentagon had earlier said it was “tracking a high-altitude surveillance balloon”.
As stories rise from across the country of otherwise perfectly healthy people suddenly suffering major heart problems, medical pundits are trying to dismiss any possibility that the largely untested COVID-19 vaccines may have played a role in such health issues.
As reported by Just The News, one prominent example is MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian. On Saturday, the 44-year-old host finally described to her viewers the nature of the “health scare” that forced her off the air for several weeks; on December 20th, she began suffering intermittent chest pains which spread to her shoulder 10 days later. After a trip to the emergency room, she was told that she was suffering from pericarditis “brought on by a virus, a literal common cold.” She spent four nights at the hospital, during which her heart had to be partially drained.
Vossoughian was then transferred to NYU Langone before finally being allowed to go home on January 4th; just three days later, she returned to the emergency room after feeling “a flutter” in her heart. She was subsequently diagnosed with myocarditis. The doctors continued to tell her that “it was still just the cold doing all this.” A cardiologist at NYU, Greg Katz, claimed that her condition was brought on by an “overactive immune response” to a cold.
As the House GOP plans numerous investigations into Joe Biden’s various scandals, ranging from government misconduct to his family’s questionable business ties, a far-left dark money group is organizing to deliberately sabotage those probes.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Congressional Integrity Project (CIP) plans to regularly send information to the Biden White House to help combat the probes, including opposition research on the Republicans leading the investigations, poll data, and political ads.
The CIP, first created in 2020, does not reveal the identities of its donors. However, tax filings reveal that most of its funding comes from another far-left group, the Sixteen Thirty Fund (STF), which has been described as the “indisputable heavyweight of Democratic dark money.” Since 2020, STF has given over $1.5 million to the CIP, the same amount of money that CIP has since reported in revenues in the same time period.
Although STF similarly does not reveal its donors’ identities, far-left billionaire George Soros has made contributions of at least $24.9 million to STF in just the year 2021 alone, as revealed by the group’s database on grants.
Hunter Biden has been accused of attempting to intimidate John Paul Mac Isaac after the Delaware computer repair shop owner sued the president's son for defamation.
Hunter, 52, first came into contact with Mac Isaac in April 2019, when he left his laptop at his shop - and never returned to collect it.
The laptop has, since the eve of the 2020 election, been a source of fascination, with its incriminating photos of a drug-addled Hunter with prostitutes seized upon, and the wayward businessman's communications and accounts pored over for evidence that Joe Biden was involved in suspect international deals.
In ritzy Dana Point, CA an emergency room doctor was riding his bicycle on Pacific Coast Highway. He was stopped at a red light in the bike lane when the driver of a Lexus hit him at high speed, sending the doctor flying perhaps 40 feet through the air. The PoC driver then did a u-turn, got out, yelled about “white privilege,” and attacked the prostrate white doctor with a knife and a BB gun. Brave onlookers apprehended the maniac, but the poor doctor died in his own emergency room.
China claimed Friday to be launching its own investigation into the suspected spy balloon flying over the US — as Canada said it was also monitoring “a potential second incident.”
The Chinese foreign ministry said Beijing was “verifying” the situation after US officials confirmed they had “communicated” the “seriousness with which we take this issue.”
The ministry’s spokesperson, Mao Ning, said China hopes “that both sides can handle this together calmly and carefully.”
“I would like to emphasize that until the facts are clarified, speculation and hype will not be helpful to the proper resolution of the issue,” Mao told a daily briefing Friday.
