Jeff Zients, the incoming White House chief of staff, met multiple times in 2016 with President Biden's son Hunter Biden who is facing criminal and congressional probes into his past business dealings.
According to emails obtained from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and verified by Fox News Digital, Zients met with Hunter Biden twice in February 2016 and on another occasion in May 2016, just months before President Biden, the vice president at the time, was set to leave the White House. President Biden also attended the first two meetings which both took place at the U.S. Naval Observatory, where the vice presidential residence is located.
During the first meeting — which took place on Feb. 12, 2016 — Zients, Hunter Biden, then-Vice President Biden met with David Rubenstein, a billionaire and founder of hundred-billion-dollar asset management firm The Carlye Group. Rubenstein is also the member of a series of other organizations including the World Economic Forum, Council on Foreign Relations and Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
During his examination of the Twitter Files, investigative reporter Matt Taibbi discovered a pattern of increasing government control over the social media platform, he told RT’s John Kiriakou on Saturday’s episode of ‘The Whistleblowers’.
Since purchasing Twitter for $44 billion in October, Elon Musk has released batches of documents shedding light on the platform’s previously opaque censorship policies, enlisting independent journalists to break each document dump. Independent journalist Matt Taibbi was the first chosen, publishing communications that revealed a company-wide effort to suppress reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop – the contents of which implicated the Biden family in numerous foreign corruption schemes.
“I wasn’t very interested in that story per se,” Taibbi told Kiriakou. “The question I was really interested in answering was what level of communication and coordination exists between…Twitter and federal law enforcement, and perhaps agencies beyond the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, or the White House.”
Military service members who were fired for refusing to get the Covid-19 vaccine are being forced to pay back recruitment bonuses because they did not honor their contracts.
US Army service members are entitled to bonuses of up to $7,000 if they sign up for six years. But speaking to Fox News, an anonymous soldier who was fired in May 2022 after refusing to get the jab, claimed he was told he must repay $4,000 because he had not served six years.
The soldier said he had to 'sell' unused vacation days in order to pay the fee and described the move as the 'final kick in the face'.
In this article, I list over 15 reasons US Federal Air Surgeon Susan Northrup should resign immediately. If she does not resign, she should be fired.
Failing to investigate numerous safety issues associated with the vaccine that were brought to her attention is inexcusable. Her actions risk the lives and health of FAA employees, pilots, and the public. I know of people inside the FAA and pilots who have been killed or permanently disabled because they followed the FAA’s directive to be vaccinated. Susan has not called any of these people to investigate. Nobody from the FAA has. That is a dereliction of duty.
Also, since the FAA has never held an honest roundtable where the safety and efficacy issues associated with the COVID, I am now collaborating with US Freedom Flyers, Senator Ron Johnson, and The Highwire to do our own roundtable where we invite all interested FAA employees, doctors from either side of the debate, and pilots and FAA employees who want to tell their vaccine injury story (or the story of a friend if the person fears retribution). If you would like to speak at the meeting and tell your story, or the story of a fellow pilot or employee, please sign up here.
A jaw-dropping article published by The Wall Street Journal in December 2020 has resurfaced. In it, American physicians admitted to ventilating patients who did not need it as a step in their protocol. It was done not as a treatment that was likely to benefit the patient, but rather as a fruitless and callous way of attempting to stop the spread of covid-19.
Doctors are treating a new flood of critically ill coronavirus patients with treatments from before the pandemic, to keep more patients alive and send them home sooner.
Before the pandemic, between about 30% to more than 40% of ventilator patients died, according to research … As the pandemic grew, hospitals in the US reported death rates in some cases of about 50% for ventilated covid-19 patients.
Add to the fact that up to 50 per cent of covid-19 “cases” were just “PCR positive” false positives, wrote James Lyons-Weiler. “Euthanising humans is illegal. Especially for the benefit of other patients.”
If you listen closely enough, the globalist power brokers who attend the annual World Economic Forum events tell you what’s in store for the planet, and some panelists dropped a huge hint at the last WEF confab last week in Davos, Switzerland.
Parents in Wisconsin’s second largest school district were recently informed their children — as young as kindergarteners — would undergo a week of “gender identity” programming where they will learn about a “spectrum” of genders and sexual orientations, according to a Monday report.
Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in a hypothetical general election rematch and is the clear-cut front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, according to a poll.
Yuma, Arizona, is on the brink of collapse, say city officials, citing President Biden's border policies that have resulted in a massive influx of illegal immigration in the area, as reported by Fox News.
SWAT team officers in North Carolina repeatedly shot an unarmed man who was wrongly suspected of taking another person hostage, the New York Post reported. The man was subsequently accused of communicating threats and resisting arrest, but home surveillance footage may reveal a different story.
According to 4 Star General Laura Richardson, Biden has asked Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and six other Latin American nations to send their old Russian weapons to Ukraine in exchange for new U.S. military equipment.
For three years, the hands of the world's Doomsday clock were set at 100 seconds to midnight. But now, as Ukraine approaches a year of war, the climate crisis continues and other actions threaten humanity, the world has officially crept even closer to what the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists calls "global catastrophe."
On Tuesday, the hands of the Doomsday clock reached their closest position to midnight yet. The clock is not a forecasting tool, but rather a symbol created by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in 1947 to shed light on how humanity's actions are causing problems that could have mass consequences.
El Salvador has successfully made its $800 million government bond payment due this month, President Nayib Bukele announced in a post on his Twitter account.
According to Bukele’s press office, Tuesday’s transaction followed an earlier one and included a $604.1 million bond payment and $23.4 million in interest.
“Well, we just paid in full, $800 million plus interest. But of course, almost nobody is covering the story… They lie and lie and lie, and when their lies are exposed, they go on silence mode,” President Bukele wrote on Twitter, referring to earlier reports in both national and international media, warning that the country may default on its obligations due to excessive reliance on cryptocurrencies.
Russian lawmakers are looking at the possibility of seizing the property of citizens who fled the country following the outbreak of the Ukraine conflict and are badmouthing their nation from abroad, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin has said.
Speaking during a parliament session on Tuesday, Volodin refuted criticism that the measure was “excessive,” insisting that it would only be used against “scoundrels who broke the law, who did harm.”
The legislation would target people who fled abroad and tarnish Russia, while continuing to make money in the country, the speaker explained. “They have real estate here, bank accounts, businesses, but at the same time they’re throwing mud at the country, wiping their feet with it,” he said.
China has rebuked the US for its brinkmanship over the nation's “catastrophic debt problem” as Washington approaches a statutory debt ceiling this week that could see the country defaulting on its obligations.
The criticism came from the Chinese embassy in Zambia’s capital Lusaka, following a reproach from US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen over alleged mishandling by Beijing of a debt problem in the southern African country.
On Monday, during a visit to Zambia, Yellen said that it was critically important to restructure the country’s debt. She blamed China, the key creditor of the African state, for being an obstacle to resolving the problem.
In response, the Chinese Embassy in Zambia said on Tuesday that “the biggest contribution that the US can make to the debt issues outside the country is to act on responsible monetary policies, cope with its own debt problem, and stop sabotaging other sovereign countries’ active efforts to solve their debt issues.”
US federal agents arrested 38 suspected terrorists at the southern border in the final three months of 2022 as the flow of illegal aliens into the country surged to an all-time high. The suspects were named on the terror watchlist in October-December, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data.
In the government’s latest fiscal year, which ended on September 30, 98 suspected terrorists were caught while trying to cross the southern US border, up more than sixfold from the preceding 12 months.
Since President Joe Biden took office in January 2021, about 150 people in the US terrorist screening database have been apprehended at the border. By comparison, there were 14 such arrests during former president Donald Trump’s four years in office – fewer than the 17 caught last month alone.
Suspected terrorists still make up a tiny percentage of the overall flow of illegal alien traffic at the southern border, but the rate has jumped nearly ninefold since Biden took office.
The US and Israeli militaries began their largest-ever joint exercise on Monday, seeking to hone seamless coordination of their forces and prove a point to Iran about their readiness to fight a conflict in the Middle East even as Washington juggles rising tensions with Russia and China.
“I do think that this scale of the exercise is relevant to a whole range of scenarios, and Iran may draw certain inferences from that,” a senior US defense official told reporters. “It would not surprise me if Iran, you know, sees the scale and the nature of these activities and understands what the two of us are capable of doing.”
Dubbed Juniper Oak, the exercise will involve over 140 aircraft, including nuclear-capable bombers and F-35 fighter jets, as well as 12 warships and about 7,500 troops, according to US Central Command (CENTCOM). It’s designed to improve the “interoperability” of both forces.
One ethnic Serb has been hospitalized with a chest wound after ethnic Albanian special police in northern Kosovo opened fire on a civilian vehicle on Monday morning, an official in Belgrade has said, protesting the latest attack in the Western-backed breakaway province.
The incident happened around 11:30 local time at a checkpoint between Kosovska Mitrovica and Leposavic, according to the Serbian government’s commissioner for Kosovo, Petar Petkovic. He blamed the ethnic Albanian prime minister, Albin Kurti, for the shooting.
Disrupting Earth’s chemical cycles brings trouble. But planet-warmingcarbon dioxide isn’t the only element whose cycle we’ve turned wonky—we’ve got a phosphorus problem too. And it’s a big one, because we depend on this element to grow the world’s crops. “I don't know if it would be possible to have a full world without any mineral phosphorus fertilizer,” says Joséphine Demay, a PhD student at INRAE, France’s National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food, and the Environment.
Since the 1800s, agriculturalists have known that elemental phosphorus is a crucial fertilizer. Nations quickly began mining caches of “phosphate rock,” minerals rich in the element. By the middle of the 20th century, companies had industrialized chemical processes to turn it into a form suitable for supercharging crops, hardening them against disease, and making them able to support more people and livestock. That approach worked remarkably well: The post-World War II “Green Revolution” fed countless people thanks to fertilizers and pesticides. But sometimes there’s too much of a good thing.
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday if President Joe Biden is involved in a “cover-up” in connection with the classified documents discovered at his private residence.
Moscow has repeatedly underscored that western hostile acts and its packages of sanctions against Iran and Russia will not prevent the two countries from bolstering mutually beneficial cooperation in all areas.
Russia and Iran continued to bolster bilateral economic collaboration in the face of western sanctions last year. Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that in 2022, trade turnover between Moscow and Tehran increased by 15% to a whopping $4.6 billion on Monday.
