"If the two remaining sureties are publicly identified, they will likely be subjected to probing media scrutiny, and potentially targeted for harassment, despite having no substantive connection to the case," wrote SBF's lawyers in a letter filed on Tuesday seeking redactions of the names of the two individuals who intend to sign as sureties to his bail.
"Consequently, the privacy and safety of the sureties are “countervailing factors” that significantly outweigh the presumption of public access to the very limited information at issue," the letter continues.
Bankman-Fried's $250 million bail package - granted in his first appearance on US soil since his arrest in the Bahamas, was secured by his parents' Palo Alto home, which is worth nowhere near that amount. The judge in the case also required that two people of "considerable means," at least one of whom cannot be a relative, also sign the bond.
Bankman-Fried was granted a $250 million bail package in December, one of the largest in US history. The personal recognizance bond approved by the judge was secured by the equity in Bankman-Fried’s parents home in Palo Alto, California, which is almost certainly not worth anywhere near that amount. But outsized bonds are more a means of establishing harsh financial consequences for bail-jumping and are often backed by assets worth only around 10% of the stated amount. -Bloomberg
The two individuals have not yet signed the bond but intend to do so by the Jan. 5 deadline, according to the letter.
The Gateway Pundit has been reporting for years that these experimental vaccines are not safe and effective. Now, controlled corporate media finally starting to ask real questions about these shots.
A recent article published in the Wall Street Journal suggested that the Covid outbreak heavily affected most vaccinated people. More and more research points to the possibility that repeated vaccinations make people more vulnerable to XBB and contribute to the rapid evolution of the virus.
It can be recalled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced it is monitoring a new COVID-19 variant known as “XBB,” which is responsible for all new infections in the United States.
The Buffalo Bill issued a statement early Tuesday on the condition of 24-year-old safety Damar Hamlin who collapsed on the field and was given CPR before being evacuated via ambulance after making a tackle on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins in the first quarter of the ESPN Monday night game in Cincinnati. The game was suspended with 5:58 left in the first quarter with the Bengals ahead 7-3, and later was postponed by the NFL.
“Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest following a hit in our game versus the Bengals. His heartbeat was restored on the field and he was transferred to the UC Medical Center for further testing and treatment. He is currently sedated and listed in critical condition.”
At the start of 2023 Earth will be visited by a newly discovered comet that may just be bright enough to be spotted with the naked eye.
The comet, named C/2022 E3 (ZTF), is currently passing through the inner solar system. It will make its closest approach to the sun, or perihelion, on Jan. 12, and will then whip past Earth making its closest passage of our planet, its perigee, between Feb. 1 and Feb. 2.
If the comet continues to brighten as it currently is, it could be visible in dark skies with the naked eye. This is difficult to predict for comets, but even if C/2022 E3 (ZTF) does fade it should still be visible with binoculars or a telescope for a number of days around its close approach.
When government wants to bury a story, they release the news on a Friday. When they REALLY want to bury a story, they release it during a weekend holiday when the vast majority of Americans are focused on anything other than the news.
The Department of Homeland Security decided to drop a bombshell release about an upcoming terrorist attack on Saturday, New Year’s Eve. According to the intelligence, al Qaeda is actively recruiting new suicide bombers to use aircraft in attacks on the United States that are similar to what took place on September 11, 2001. They will use different strategies and tactics, according to the memo.
Even though this was an internal memo, they knew with a certainty because of the vastness of the drop that it would be leaked to the press. As of two days following the drop, no corporate media outlet in the United States has reported on it.
Former President Donald Trump’s two-year Facebook ban may be coming to a close on Saturday, but the former president will likely stay off the platform due to his legal agreement with his social media platform, Truth Social.
On November 25th there occurred a singularly rare event in the ongoing COVID-19 saga – truth was spoken to power. A distinguished medical doctor and infectious disease expert was given free rein to interrogate a government official, unmediated and without apparent time restraint. The doctor in question was the distinguished oncologist, professor emeritus at Kyoto University and Representative of the Learning Health Society Institute (LHSI) Masanori Fukushima. His rigorous and passionate berating of an official from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) on COVID-19 vaccine safety and government transparency made for gripping viewing. A recording swiftly went viral, elevating Doctor Fukushima to a new status as leading critic of the COVID-19 vaccines in Japan.
I interviewed Professor Fukushima via Zoom on December 28th. He began by giving me some background to his career and explaining why he had become involved in the COVID-19 vaccine issue before moving on to the specific harms, his views of the Japanese Government’s response and the way ahead.
Alabama’s constitutional carry law took effect January 1, 2023, meaning law-abiding Americans in 25 states can now carry a gun for self-defense without paying the government a fee or getting government permission.
On December 14, 2022, Breitbart News noted some 25 states had passed constitutional carry legislation and Alabama’s would take effect at the start of this year: “Those states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. (Alabama’s constitutional carry provision takes effect January 1, 2023.)”
The HuffPost reported the constitutional carry landscape was nowhere near as broad twelve years ago, when Vermont and Alaska were the only constitutional carry states. But Arizona adopted constitutional carry in 2010, followed by Wyoming in 2011, and the ball kept rolling from there and on April 12, 2022, Breitbart News observed that Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed legislation making Georgia the 25th state to adopt constitutional carry.
Nebraska State Sen. Tom Brewer (R) plans to introduce constitutional carry legislation in the upcoming legislative session and believes the votes are there to add his state to the 25 that already have constitutional carry.
Dr. Wilson Chin, a Hong Kong-born, U.K.-trained physician who practiced medicine in Queensland, Australia, is dead after getting “vaccinated” for covid.
Chin was an aggressive promoter of covid jabs, having been among the first to start injecting children under the age of 12 after Pfizer’s mRNA (messenger RNA) variety was approved for children aged 5-11.
The first two girls that Chin injected developed immediate convulsions, and it was initially believed that they died at his clinic. Chin was quick, however, to declare to Nine News jab zealot and “reporter” MacKenzie Colahan that the girls were fine and that their adverse outcomes had nothing to do with the shots.
In the aftermath of the scandal, Chin whined and complained all over the media about the “threats” he was supposedly receiving. Then the holidays arrived, and Chin reportedly “passed away suddenly” on or around Christmas Eve at the age of 34.
The latest falsified photo posted by an infamous Ukrainian legislator was widely mocked on Twitter by incredulous users.
A widely-shared photo which claimed to show a child victimized by the Russian military has been deleted by the notoriously-mendacious Ukrainian politician who posted it after social media users discovered it was fraudulent.
“There are no children in #Ukraine anymore,” claimed Lesia Vasylenko, a Ukrainian member of parliament who’s frequently cited in Western media reports on supposed Russian misdeeds. “Pictured: Marc, 8 [years old], just survived a #Russia artillery attack,” she insisted in a since-deleted post which received tens of thousands of likes and retweets.
The only problem? The photo was actually over a decade old, as a simple reverse image search shows. In fact, the image seems to have been pulled directly from the Spanish-language cover of a 2008 book called “The Forgotten Man” by novelist Christina McKenna.
It’s far from Vasylenko’s first brush with forgery. As far back as April, she attempted to pass off horrifying war crimes inflicted by the Ukrainian military’s neo-nazi Azov militants as the doing of Russian soldiers.
The notoriously-mendacious legislator is the daughter of Volodymyr Vasylenko, who was at one point not only the Ukrainian Ambassador to NATO and the EU, but a representative to the UN Human Rights Council. The elder Vasylenko previously sat on the “international tribunal” which oversaw the prosecution of former Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milošević and which openly admitted it wouldn’t prosecute NATO nationals.
Florida Governor DeSantis, seeing that Florida’s universities are suppressing free expression with speech control and normalizing sexual perversity while demonizing normality succeeded in having laws passed against the substitution of indoctrination for education. But the Woke left rule Florida’s Universities, Not Florida Law.
Florida Universities Ignore State Law Against Indoctrinating White Students with the Beliefs they Are Racists and the Constitution Is a Tool of White Oppression of Blacks.
Universities have developed what Cornell Law School Professor William Jacobson calls “systemic repression.” By hiring Woke activists as professors and mandating Woke policies, administrators have created a culture that allows no room for dissent against the demonization of white ethnicities as racists and the denunciation of Western civilization as a monument to white supremacy. In most American universities it is no longer possible for students to be enculturated into the Western tradition. A history major learns that history consists of a series of crimes by white people against people of color. An English major learns African and South American novelists. The voices that connect Americans to their tradition are not heard.
It is the same everywhere. America’s universities are now knives at America’s throat. They are centers of anti-American revolution, not centers of learning. Two generations of young have been deracinated. The break in the transmission of the culture is likely fatal to the continued existence of Western civilization
Republican Rep. Bob Good of Virginia claimed that “10 to 15” Republicans would “block” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s bid to become speaker at Tuesday’s vote and hinted at a “true candidate” to potentially replace him.
Judge Jeanine Pirro said her backstage interaction with Whoopi Goldberg on the set of “The View” Thursday was akin to “abuse,” after Goldberg allegedly told Pirro to get the “F*#k” out of the building.
Pirro and Goldberg crossed swords while discussing President Donald Trump’s policies and Pirro set Goldberg off by telling her she suffered from Trump derangement syndrome.
“It was, you know, no-holds-barred. Whoopi got angry,” Pirro said on “Fox & Friends” Friday. “What the viewing audience, the television audience didn’t see is, they popped up the cover of my book as she pushed off the desk. You know, unplugged her mic and then stormed off the set.”
Democrats are reportedly concerned about a bipartisan third-party ticket that could siphon votes away from President Biden in 2024, handing the White House to Donald Trump.
While many on the Republican side worry about a scenario where Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wins the Republican nomination, forcing Trump to run as an Independent or on another party ticket and “sabotaging” the GOP, a new report suggests the concern runs in the other direction as well.
A group called ‘Third Way’ released a report which analyzed the “dangerous illusion of a Presidential Third Party in 2024.”
The group states that a third-party candidate, while their intentions would be admirable, would almost certainly lose and “will most likely benefit the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump or a Trump acolyte in 2024.”
At least, that’s according to the organization’s official tenets as formulated and published by Anton Szandor LaVey, who founded the Church of Satan in 1966 and remained its high priest until his death in 1997.
