"A lot of people talk about the desirability of a global government, with themselves inevitably at its head, but the truth is a global government has already emerged, one that is the purest expression of democracy possible. The new global government is the people of planet Earth sharing the collective consciousness of the internet, finding out for themselves what they need to know, and then deciding what to do about it. Sadly, along the way, we have been forced to look into a mirror to see the true nature of those who wish to be our leaders and it is not a pretty picture of human nature. We have learned that with precious few exceptions, politicians are all corrupt, corporations sell us useless and often dangerous products, bankers exist to loot us, and the clergy are diddling the little boys." -- Michael Rivero

The top two public health agencies in the United States conducted a joint study showing that the risk of developing autoimmune heart disease among the "fully vaccinated" for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is a shocking 13,200 percent higher than it is among the unvaccinated.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) discovered that compared to the background risk in the general population, the risk of myocarditis is 133 times greater in those who took the mRNA injections from either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna.

Researchers from several top universities and hospitals across America contributed to the study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Using data from the government-run Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the CDC and the FDA identified 1,626 cases of myocarditis, which were cross-checked to ensure the results comply with the CDC's official definition of myocarditis.

If anyone doubted these lawsuits were about Democrats’ vendetta against Trump, this should put those to rest. Despite getting a verdict in her favor, Attorney General Letitia James seemingly sought to inflict more pain on Trump, his businesses, and his family.

Trump is required to pay $175 million in bond as the case faces appeals. James wanted that decision thrown out, making accusations about the group which is paying it.

It seems she wanted to go back to the $400+ million bond the original judge set. That would have required Trump to shell out nearly half a billion dollars just in a bond.
