White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre embarrassed herself again this week when she accidentally read the wrong scripted response to a question during Monday’s White House press briefing.
A reporter pointed out that Sen. Jean Shaheen (D-N.H.) is upset with Joe Biden for supporting a proposal that would put South Carolina ahead of New Hampshire in the primary schedule, and that Shaheen believes that New Hampshire “is now vulnerable for her party” because of that.
“Does the president have a response to that?” the reporter asked.
“So, look, we honor — we honor the Hatch Act, as I mentioned many times before, here, as we are talking about a potential election — a 2024 presidential election,” Jean-Pierre began. “But, looking backward, it is the ultimate irony, you know, that the 2020 election was — was proven by the Trump administration’s Homeland—”
Cases of myocarditis, diagnosed clinically by laboratory tests and imaging have been described in the context of mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. Autopsy-based description of detailed histological features of vaccine-induced myocarditis is lacking. We describe the autopsy findings and common characteristics of myocarditis in untreated persons who received anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. Standardized autopsies were performed on 25 persons who had died unexpectedly and within 20 days after anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. In four patients who received a mRNA vaccination, we identified acute (epi-)myocarditis without detection of another significant disease or health constellation that may have caused an unexpected death.
On Tuesday, Indonesia’s parliament passed a new ‘criminal code’ making it illegal for anyone within the country to engage in sexual activity outside of marriage and for unmarried couples from living together.
The reparations movement is now going global. On Monday, radical left Colombian Vice-President Francia Márquez demanded before the United Nations that predominately white nations pay Afro-descendant and African people for the sin of slavery.
The haters of white women for their supposed complicity in the racism of the white supremacist patriarchy are back in full force in Time Magazine this week, with an excerpt from the new bookWhite Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How to Do Better. In this iteration of anti-racist instructions for white women, white women's racism is defined as niceness, perfectionist, and the unconscious implications of their own skin color.
The ladies who brought $2,500 per plate anti-racist dinners to white women a few years ago have now determined that politeness, as we know it, is racist, as is the affliction of perfectionism. Being nice, is all incredibly racist. Their book instructs white women to "stop being nice and start dismantling white supremacy."
Calls are intensifying for a federal investigation into Arizona Democratic Governor-elect Katie Hobbs after internal Twitter emails were recently released.
The emails, which were released as part of the “Twitter files” by new CEO Elon Musk, appear to indicate that Hobbs, who served as the state’s secretary of state at the time, emailed Twitter staffers in Jan. 2021 to have accounts blocked that she claimed contained so-called election misinformation.
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted: “The SOS of AZ and Gov candidate, Katie Hobbs, used the power of the AZ SOS to collude w/ Twitter to unconstitutionally violate 1st Amendment rights of Americans for her own political gain. This is communism and Hobbs can not be governor. I’m calling for a Federal investigation.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is in line to become Speaker in January, has put the Jan. 6 Committee on notice. Earlier this week, the California Republican sent the committee a letter informing members to preserve documents and all work the panel has done during its investigation so the new GOP majority can examine it.
“I remind you and your staff on the Committee to preserve all records collected and transcripts of testimony taken during your investigation,” McCarthy wrote to the committee’s chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), on Wednesday. He also said the panel must be held to the strictest of scrutiny, considering the implications of any findings.
“You have spent a year and a half and millions of taxpayers’ dollars conducting this investigation. It is imperative that all information collected be preserved not just for institutional prerogatives but for transparency to the American people,” he wrote.
Investigations are continuing into the election anomalies in Arizona, where Republicans performed fairly well except for in the top four Trump-endorsed races. Since there are 4 percent more Republicans than Democrats in the state (as well as in Maricopa County), and most of the Republicans were easily beating their Democratic opponents in mainstream polls, data analysts are looking closely at the numbers. Analytics 805 examined the numbers of who voted in most of the races, and discovered that Republican candidates outside of the four races performed incredibly well in contrast, as much as 200 percent better.
Analytics 805 founder Thomas Cole told The Arizona Sun Times, “We took the Arizona election numbers and made this chart, to visually show the improbability of Kari Lake losing, while the entire state of Arizona voted Republican for the State Senate and U.S. House races. We saw a two-to-one Republican versus Democrat vote in the State Senate races. So it makes no sense to think those Republicans suddenly flipped to Democrat Katie Hobbs for governor by a 25 percent margin.”
Cole said he became interested in the data after watching an episode of Joe Oltmann’s Conservative Daily Podcast, where Oltmann crunched the numbers.
Arizona Republican Kari Lake has filed a legal challenge to the outcome of her gubernatorial race with Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. Lake believes she has an “exceptional” lawsuit and that she’s willing to “take it all the way to the Supreme Court” if necessary.
Hobbs certified her own win over Lake on Monday with outgoing Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel as witnesses, according to ABC News.
With the certification complete, Lake has five days to file legal challenges in court.
Spike proteins induced by the Covid-19 vaccine are causing blood cells to chew through the heart’s main artery which leads to imminent death, virologist Ryan Cole recently described on the Dr. Drew show.
Presenting slides showing how the spike protein expresses itself in brain tissue and other major organs, the Idaho pathologist explained they make their way throughout the body “wherever the lipid nanoparticle distributes.”
Fashion has been smashing taboos since Coco Chanel first marketed trousers to women after World War I. But today there are very few norms left to assault in pursuit of publicity-generating controversy. So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised to find the rag trade venturing into truly taboo territory: paedophilia and now suicide — albeit with a fig-leaf of liberal proceduralism, in its guise as medically-assisted voluntary euthanasia.
Last week, fashion brand Balenciaga triggered considerable controversy when an ad campaign featuring young children holding teddy bears dressed in bondage gear hit the headlines. Not to be outdone, Canadian fashion retailer Simons is the source of this week’s fashion rage-clicks, with a video celebrating euthanasia.
