"Argument Against Abolishing Christianity in England" in A Modest Proposal and Other Satirical Works
"The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men." -- Samuel Adams
The Democrat-led House Select Committee to Investigate Jan. 6 doctored a key piece of its evidence, adding audio to silent U.S. Capitol Police security footage used to create a dramatic video montage for the opening of its primetime hearings last summer, according to a Just the News review of the original raw footage and interviews.
In at least two instances identified by Just the News, the panel's sizzle reel that aired live and on C-SPAN last June failed to identify that it had overdubbed audio from another, unidentified source onto the silent footage. Multiple current and former Capitol Police officials as well as key lawmakers and congressional aides confirmed that the closed-circuit cameras that captured the video do not record sound and that it was added afterwards.
A former spokesman for the Jan. 6 committee told Just the News that the panel was supposed to clearly mark any video that was dubbed with another audio source, and it did so on some occasions in the sizzle reel.
Fusion GPS, a contractor that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, reportedly withheld over 1,500 documents from Special Counsel John Durham. These documents were sought during Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe. Fusion GPS cited attorney-client privilege in their refusal to hand over the documents, a claim that has been contested by many legal experts.
According to the initial report, Durham did not take legal action to acquire the documents.
On Friday, Paul Sperry, a senior reporter for Real Clear Investigations, broke the news on Twitter, stating, “BREAKING: Hillary Clinton campaign contractor Fusion GPS held back more than 1,500 DOCUMENTS sought by Special Counsel Durham, claiming attorney-client privilege, and Durham didn’t sue for the evidence.”
House Republicans on Wednesday passed two new bills in observance of National Police Week, including one aimed at illegal immigrants.
According to The Epoch Times, HR 2494 requires that illegal immigrants who assault police officers are automatically deportable, while HR 3091 authorizes retired federal law enforcement officials to buy surplus weapons being sold by the federal government.
Not surprisingly, Democrats opposed both measures, the outlet noted.
The individual behind the information that then-Vice President Joe Biden was involved in a criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national is a "highly credible" FBI confidential human source who has been used by the bureau in multiple investigative matters dating back to the Obama administration, Fox News Digital has learned.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley were approached by a whistleblower last month alleging that the FBI was in possession of a document—an FD-1023 form, dated June 30, 2020—which explicitly detailed information provided by a confidential human source alleging Biden, while serving as vice president, was involved in a $5 million criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national in exchange for influence over policy decisions.
Russia faced a major bombardment today as huge explosions ripped through the occupied port of Berdiansk - with Ukraine believed to be making the most of new missiles gifted by Britain.
Footage shows the moment facilities at the port are hit with a suspected Storm Shadow missile, Britain's most potent non-nuclear missile which can strike targets from a range of 150 miles.
A huge plume of smoke was seen rising from a location in the port area on the Sea of Azov, in the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia region.
Russian state media outlet RT said there had been 'casualties and destruction' from the strike, the exact target of which was not immediately clear.
The Biden administration on Friday ordered a 20-year ban on new oil and gas drilling leases within 10 miles of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, according to multiple reports.
The moratorium — which the Department of Interior initially began considering in November 2021 — is a long-sought goal of several local politicians, conservation groups and Native American tribes that want to preserve the centuries-old Pueblo ruins located there, although some tribes have opposed the ban for limiting future economic opportunities, according to E&E News.
YouTube confirmed to Axios on Friday that it will adjust its election integrity policy, allowing content that alleges fraud, errors or system glitches in the 2020 presidential election and other U.S. elections to remain on the platform.
This policy change is significant as YouTube originally implemented the policy in December 2020, following the certification of the 2020 election results by a sufficient number of states. The company, in a recent statement, expressed that continuing to enforce this policy could inadvertently suppress political discourse without significantly mitigating the potential for violence or other tangible harm.
A Chicago branch of Walgreens has been redesigned with just two aisles where customers may shop for themselves, the rest must be done via a kiosk.
The new 'anti-theft' store at at 2 East Roosevelt in downtown Chicago will trust shoppers to pick up 'essentials' for themselves in the two free aisles, but everything else must be ordered and picked up via a counter.
The store, which took weeks to construct, opened to mixed reviews on Tuesday.
One shopper told WBBM Newsradio their experience was positive: 'It is nice that, for the essentials, you no longer have to call security to get them to open the glass case.'
Another, however, felt that the lack of trust was disappointing: 'We should be able to be trusted to go in without having to have cameras and people watching us and all that stuff.'
Twitter’s head of brand safety and ad quality, A.J. Brown, has decided to leave the company, according to a source familiar with the matter on Friday, the second safety leader to depart in a matter of days.
The latest departure adds to a growing challenge for new Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino, even before she steps into the role.
On Thursday, Ella Irwin told Reuters that she resigned from her role as vice president of product for trust and safety at the social media company, where she oversaw content moderation efforts and often responded to users with questions about suspended accounts.
Brown worked on efforts to prevent ads from appearing next to unsuitable content.
They’ve packed their suitcases and headed home.
Non-binary ex-nuclear official Sam Brinton is free on bond after spending more than two weeks in jail over a third accusation of stealing women’s luggage.
Brinton was arrested May 17 for being a “fugitive from justice,” and held in custody in Montgomery County, Maryland until Thursday.
The ex-Biden administration appointee — who uses they/them pronouns — was then extradited to Arlington County in Virginia, officials from both prisons confirmed to The Post.
Brinton, 35, briefly appeared before a magistrate and was released by a judge on $5,000 bond.
“People of color” living in the West Oakland community of the San Francisco Bay are demanding reparations because they claim that global warming is causing sea levels to rise and unearth toxic chemicals hidden in the soil, supposedly displacing them throughout the community.
Like many communities across the United States, West Oakland has an industrial past that has since been replaced with housing and other uses. As a result, the people who live there are sometimes exposed to hidden chemicals in the soil, which can only be remedied, according to West Oakland residents, by delivering “climate justice.”
Because of the media’s constant fearmongering about man-made “climate change,” area residents now fear that the waters of the San Francisco Bay will rise so much that pockets of pollution will end up getting strewn across their yards and in their local playgrounds. More than 130 sites, they claim, are now at risk of contamination.
Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Thursday it is “guaranteed” Congress will be holding FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt for not providing the House Oversight Committee with a document allegedly related to President Joe Biden.
In a phone interview with the Daily Caller, Greene said Wray “does not know what else we [the House Oversight Committee] know and we know more than we’ve already told.” While Greene would not provide specifics on what else the committee knows, she did say they know exactly what is on the document and that they have a whistleblower.
The document in question is an FBI-generated FD-1023 form that allegedly shows an arrangement exchanging money for policy decisions.
“We’re giving him an opportunity here to do the right thing and do his job. He didn’t swear an allegiance to Joe Biden. He swore an allegiance to the American people. He took an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution,” Greene told the Caller. “That’s his job. Not to protect Joe Biden and their family and the corruption that they have been involved. And the abuse of power. So we’re giving Chris Wray an opportunity and he’s very close to blowing it, and he has a lot to worry about because he doesn’t know what else we know. That’s the other thing.”
The mRNA (messenger RNA) “vaccines” for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), including those manufactured by Pfizer and Moderna, are loaded with toxins that contaminate human DNA, according to microbiologist Kevin McKernan, a former researcher and team leader for the MIT Human Genome project.
One major contaminant that McKernan identified is simian virus 40 (SV40) promoters, which are linked to mesotheliomas, lymphomas, and various cancers of the brain and bone.
SV40, by the way, is the same contaminant used in polio vaccines that a 2002 study published in The Lancer found causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, causing up to 50 percent of the 55,000 new cases of the disease that are diagnosed every single year.
Microsoft has made an announcement stating that it will be incorporating robust built-in artificial intelligence (AI) integration across its Windows 11 operating system, and already privacy experts and advocates are concerned.
