Doctor Who Claimed Obesity Can’t Be Treated With Diet and Exercise Tapped for Role in USDA’s Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee

Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford

Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, who specializes in obesity medicine at Mass General Health in Boston, has been appointed to the Biden’s Administration’s USDA panel which determines diet guidelines.

USDA announced the appointment of 20 nationally recognized scientists to serve on the 2025 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (the Committee).

According to the release, “The Committee will be tasked with reviewing the current body of science on key nutrition topics and developing a scientific report that includes its independent assessment of the evidence and recommendations for HHS and USDA as they develop the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The Committee’s review, public comments, and input from other federal nutrition experts will help inform HHS and USDA as the Departments develop the 10th edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.”

“The Dietary Guidelines serve as the foundation for national nutrition programs, standards, and education. In addition, they provide health professionals with guidance and resources to assist the public in choosing an overall healthy diet that works for them.”

The release continues, “The 2025 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will examine the relationship between diet and health across all life stages and will use a health equity lens throughout its evidence review to ensure factors such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and culture are described and considered to the greatest extent possible based on the information provided in the scientific literature and data.”

But according to Dr. Stanford, obesity is “a brain disease” that has little to do with willpower.

In an interview with “60 Minutes” Stanford claimed, “It’s a brain disease. And the brain tells us how much to eat and how much to store.”

And when it comes to willpower, “we should throw that out the window.”


The New York Post reports:

The number one cause of obesity is genetics,” Stanford told CBS’ Lesley Stahl.

“That means that, if you were born to parents that have obesity, you have a 50 to 85% likelihood of having the disease yourself even with optimal diet, exercise, sleep management, stress management,” she added.

Stanford elaborated during the interview to claim that an overwhelming majority of U.S. doctors hold a bias toward obese patients.

Her comments coincide an uptick in the disease in recent years, with the CDC reporting that the percentage of obese Americans shifted up to 41.9% in 2020 from 30.5% in 2017.

Even more concerning statistics from Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health indicate 43 million preschool-aged children were obese in 2010 worldwide and the numbers have been on a steady incline since the 1990s.

“If nothing is done to reverse the epidemic, more than 1 billion adults are projected to be obese by 2030,” the page reads.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee consists of 20 “nationally-recognized” physicians, according to the USDA, and was announced by the agency’s Secretary Tom Vilsack as well as the Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra last Thursday.

As Media, Biden Scramble to Explain Document Scandal, the Real Issue Is Unaccountable Bureaucracy

Even more classified documents were discovered recently at President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware. This news came shortly after the announcement that classified materials had been found earlier at Biden’s former private office at a supposed Washington think tank, the Penn Biden Center.

You can see the media narrative morph in real time, from holding classified documents being the worst crime ever to it just being a problem with thesystem.”

How NBC and its "experts" radically and fundamentally changed how they talk about classified document leaks as soon as it went from Trump to Biden:https://t.co/wWgE370khr

— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 26, 2023

The classified documents in the president’s former office at Penn Biden Center actually were discovered by his lawyers before the Nov. 8 midterm elections, but the Justice Department didn’t announce anything until weeks later. Convenient. Just standard operating procedure, I’m sure.

We learned in mid-January that Biden’s lawyers found more classified documents at his Wilmington residence.

Don’t forget, and I’m sure you don’t, that Biden and the media made out that Donald Trump’s holding of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate was a massive scandal. The FBI’s banana republic-style raiddirected by the Justice Department—on the former president’s home in Florida was treated as the moment that proved how horrible Trump truly is.

Many super-serious people in the media and our esteemed legal profession were calling for Trump to be indicted and said he should go to jail.

Welp, now it turns out that Biden was sitting on what appears to be reams of classified documents going back not only to his eight years as vice president, but his 36 years as a senator. 

The tone has shifted. The media is now in a mad dash to add “context” to the Biden documents to create a distinction between the no good, guilty Trump and good ol’ Joe, who clearly just made honest mistakes.

The National Archives and Records Administration was vehement in demanding that Trump return documents marked classified. The agency has been radio silent on the Biden documents.

As much as Biden’s friends in the media and our vaunted “nonpartisan” agencies try to diminish the Biden scandal and make what Trump may have done seem to be worse, it appears that what Biden did actually might have been quite a bit worse.

As Amber Athey writes at The Spectator, there are arguments to be made about the extent to which a vice president may declassify documents, but “there is no world in which a U.S. senator would be able to declassify them.” 

A specific process exists whereby a senator is shown classified documents but they aren’t allowed to take them, she writes.

“How was Biden able to do so? Did he steal them?” Athey asks.

The National Archives finally said something Thursday. Not about Biden. Instead, the government agency requested that all living former presidents and vice presidents check for classified documents in their possession. It didn’t ask former senators, funnily enough.

So, this story has moved on from Trump’s being portrayed as a crooked threat to democracy and now is: “Hmm, looks like former presidents have classified documents laying around everywhere. No biggie.”

In fairness, some Democrats have been harsh in their criticism of the Biden administration. Maybe they’re upset because Biden blew up their cherished narrative about Trump.

Now that the media is in backtrack mode, what should we make of this whole chain of events?

For one, serious questions remain to be answered about Biden’s past conduct and what he did with access to classified information. 

Hunter Biden, the president’s son, has been accused of enriching himself and other family members by using his father’s name and connections, especially in overseas ventures. 

Despite attempts by the media and Big Tech to bury this story, it’s going to be hard to avoid in the future. The Hunter Biden accusations look even more serious if it turns out he had access to classified information. Is the whole Biden family involved, not just one drug-addled, layabout son?

The House of Representatives, now in Republican control, certainly will be looking into this.

Biden’s pitch to the American people in the 2020 presidential election was a return to normalcy. The media portrayed him as a steady, serious hand at the tiller. It characterized Trump as a man out of control. 

But now it looks like Biden not only has been sloppy, but also very well may be corrupt.

I’d say that’s not even the most troubling aspect of this story.

The bigger issue here actually goes beyond the Biden and Trump documents. What’s disturbing is how government agencies so easily can use technicalities in the law to selectively go after those they don’t like.

As political scientist Charles Murray noted on Twitter, mass overclassification of government documents means presidents generally could be in violation of the law. 

Lavrentiy Beria, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s notorious head of the secret police, once said, “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” It feels like that’s where we are headed. 

Can we trust our now supremely powerful federal agencies to act faithfully and objectively within the law? Can we trust them not to target ordinary people, politicians, and even presidents who cross them and go soft on ones that do their bidding?

This issue has grown alongside the massive expansion of the administrative state. That massive bureaucracy may now act as if it is the law unto itself. Who is sovereign in America today? Is it “We the people,” or is it bureaucrats untethered from accountability? 

We have good reason not to have much faith in our new guardians of “democracy.” Even good men, given such power, may become corrupted.

This is why the explosive expansion of the IRS under Biden has raised massive alarm bells.

Maybe the Founding Fathers had a point with the whole limited government thing.

The document discoveries are certainly an embarrassing fiasco for Biden. The president, criticizing Trump, wondered on “60 Minutes” how anyone could “be that irresponsible” with classified documents. He turns out to be just that irresponsible and then some. 

This moment at least will show some people that any idea that Biden is some kind of elder statesmanlike presence in the White House is no more than an illusionary farce.

But we must acknowledge the elephant in the room: Selective use of information, controlled by an increasingly ideological technocratic elite, is a danger to the republic and free institutions. 

That’s the big story here.

Don Lemon’s Morning Show Suffers Worst Week Since Launch – But He’s Still “Thinking Of Himself As Beyonce”

Things are getting worse for Don Lemon and CNN.

The recently launched morning show, “CNN This Morning,” had its smallest audience since it launched among both total viewers and the key demographic.

The show averaged only 331,000 viewers — while Fox’s morning show averaged 1.3 million viewers.

Fox News reported:

“CNN This Morning,” the recently launched morning program built around Don Lemon, had its smallest audience since it launched last year among both total viewers and the crucial demo.

“FOX & Friends” averaged 1.3 million viewers while “CNN This Morning” managed only 331,000. When it comes to the key demo, “FOX & Friends” averaged 180,000 viewers compared to only 65,000 for CNN’s morning show.

While CNN This Morning” struggled to attract viewers, it did land some free promotion when late night host Stephen Colbert mocked Lemon’s wardrobe. On “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the comedian insulted the hoodie sweater and suit jacket combination that Lemon wore Thursday on CNN.

There is also reportedly turmoil among co-hosts behind the scenes.

Don Lemon viewed himself as the main star of the show – that did not fly with his co-hosts Kaitlan Collins, and Poppy Harlow.

Radar Online reported:

CNN’s Don Lemon is struggling to share the limelight with his morning show co-stars after bidding farewell to his primetime show, insiders close to the TV personality alleged about the behind-the-scenes tension.

RadarOnline.com can exclusively report on the secret drama between Lemon, Kaitlan Collins, and Poppy Harlow that is rumored to be causing a stir on-set.

“Don went into this thinking of himself as Beyoncé and his co-hosts as his backup dancers,” claimed the insider, alleging that was hardly the case once the show began.

“That attitude did not fly — especially with Kaitlan. She won’t play second fiddle to Don.”

Maybe they should start reporting real news!

Telemundo's "Con-Law Expert": Pence Doc Find Is "Christmas" For Trump

To take it from Joseph Malouf, Telemundo´s in-house “Constitutional Law Expert”, Christmas came a month late for Donald Trump: exactly on January 23rd, when classified documents were found at former Vice President Mike Pence´s Indiana home. “Now that you have three people- three people recently serving the country- with classified documents; it's the best news Trump could have asked for; it's Christmas for him,” Malouf told D.C. correspondent Cristina Londoño the day after the story of Pence´s documents broke. CRISTINA LONDOÑO: Unlike Pence and Biden, Trump refused to voluntarily hand over the documents he had. According to Joseph Malouf, that could now work in (Trump’s) favor.  JOSEPH MALOUF: ... Well, now that you have three people, three people recently serving the country, with classified documents; it's the best news Trump could have asked for; it's Christmas for him. Malouf’s inference (for what it's worth, his namesake law firm specializes in Personal Injury) aired over a report that had the appearance of creating a permission structure for the normalization of removing classified documents. To wit:  That the former VP and Biden were unaware of having the documents and were cooperating with the DOJ. The Bad Orange Man, however, refused to hand over the documents he had. In the reporter´s words: “His (Pence´s) team discovered them and turned them over to the Justice Department.” That now, after the Biden bust, it's perfectly possible - and acceptable -for presidents (except for Trump) and vice presidents to take classified documents with them during government transitions, as normalized by former WH press secretary, Jen Psaki. That it's perfectly ok to keep classified documents strewn all around the place, in the case of Biden and Pence. Not so for Trump, who is now somehow benefiting from the infamous FBI raid at Mar-A-Lago after the Pence doc find. Heck - it's Christmas for him!! Does “Christmas for Trump” lead to Springtime for Biden? Telemundo sure seems to think so!  Call out advertisers like Amazon that enable bias in the news at the nation´s Spanish-speaking media. Follow this link. To view the complete transcript of the segment mentioned above as aired over Telemundo´s Evening News edition on Tuesday, January 22, 2023, please press on ´Expand´. JULIO VAQUEIRO: On to other news. Former Vice President Mike Pence had classified documents at his Indiana home. His team discovered them and turned them over to the Justice Department. That adds to the secret documents in the homes of Biden and Trump and raises new questions about how the most sensitive government documents are protected. Cristina Londoño has the details.  CRISTINA LONDOÑO: After criticizing his former boss and predecessor, and repeatedly denying that he took classified documents, former Vice President Mike Pence hired lawyers to review files in his home. "We found a small number of classified documents that the former vice president did not know he had," his lawyer informed the National Archives; he was waiting for directives on how to handle them. Three days later, he confirmed that while away in Washington, D.C., FBI agents came to his home and removed the sensitive material.  MERRICK GARLAND, U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL: I'm unable to comment on your question LONDOÑO: Attorney General Merrick Garland did not reveal whether he will appoint a special counsel to investigate Pence as he did in the Trump and Biden cases. But there is already talk in Washington of a bigger problem.  JOSEPH MALOUF: You're going to see from the side of the Republicans, how the Democrats will take action and not allow documents that keep this country safe, to fall into the hands of someone who can put us at risk.  LONDOÑO: Jen Psaki was a White House adviser under Obama and Biden, and said it's not impossible to take classified documents during a (presidential transition). JEN PSAKI: There is so much activity, you're still governing, you're still being president or being vice president. And your staff is typically packing up your belongings so that you're ready to go or somebody to come in. There is not a process of checking those boxes… LONDOÑO: In Pence's corner, a surprise ally: "He´s an innocent man. He never did anything knowingly dishonest in this life. Leave him alone!!!", former President Donald Trump said. Unlike Pence and Biden, Trump voluntarily refused to hand over the documents he had. According to Joseph Malouf, that now favors him. MALOUF: ... Well, now that you have three people, three people recently serving the country, with classified documents; it's the best news Trump could have asked for; it's Christmas for him. VAQUEIRO: Cristina Londoño, in Washington DC. Good afternoon. So there are three. Can we expect more officials, more former officials with secret documents?  LONDOÑO: Well, Julio, apparently, not many. The National Archives Administration says it already has in its possession all documents from Ronald Reagan's administration to Barack Obama's, including the two Bush administrations and also Bill Clinton. So, those documents are already secured and there is no danger... for now. VAQUEIRO: For now. Thank you Cristina Londoño.  

Big Tech Firm Temporarily Censors Former GOP Nominee for Minnesota’s Top Elections Office Over Election Integrity Post

LinkedIn initially removed a post from former Minnesota Republican Secretary of State nominee Kim Crockett regarding potential noncitizen voting in the state, claiming it was “misinformation.”

But the social media site restored the post about an hour after an inquiry from The Daily Signal about the removal.  

The network notified Crockett that it removed the post in a 3:39 p.m. email on Wednesday. The post featured Crockett’s commentary and a link to a Daily Signal article reporting on a beneficiary of the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, telling a committee of the Minnesota House of Representatives, “We are voting.” 

Crockett did not appeal the removal but was considering doing so on Thursday. About one day after the removal, she got the notification that the post was back up. 

The Daily Signal inquired with the LinkedIn press office at 10:19 a.m. Thursday about why Crockett’s post was removed. At 11:20 a.m. Thursday, LinkedIn sent Crockett an email notifying her, “Your post is back on LinkedIn.” 

DACA recipients are illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States when they were minors and are shielded from deportation under the Obama administration policy that began in 2012. It is illegal for noncitizens to vote. 

“As a lawyer, I understand LinkedIn wants to be a place for professional networking and not a political site,” Crockett told The Daily Signal

“I think sites have the right to set their own policies, as long as there is not collusion between the government and social media sites, as happened with other social media companies,” she continued. “There is no evidence that is the case with LinkedIn. I realize some people don’t want politics. But people on LinkedIn are grown up. They don’t have to look at my posts if they don’t want to.”

However, she noted that someone who is appealing a removal must first click a box agreeing with LinkedIn’s policy on misinformation. 

Crockett said in her commentary above the article link: “A DACA resident brazenly told lawmakers she is voting that non-citizens are voting. And if the Dems in power do not deliver drivers licenses to illegal aliens as promised, ‘We will vote you out.’ No irony there. Yawn. Just more lawlessness from a Democratic stronghold. #Electionsmatter #Lawlessness”

LinkedIn removed the post, she said. She forwarded a message that says: “Your post doesn’t comply with our policies.” It continues: 

Your post goes against our policy on misinformation. It has been removed and only you can access it.

If you’ve reviewed our policy and believe we made a mistake, you can ask us to take a second look.

Repeatedly creating content that doesn’t comply with our Professional Community Policies could lead to your LinkedIn account being restricted.

Thank you for being part of the LinkedIn community.

LinkedIn did not respond to inquiries from The Daily Signal for this story about why the post was removed to begin with, and why the company chose to repost it without any changes.

Crockett’s LinkedIn post on Wednesday included her own commentary about a DACA recipient named Angelico Bello who, among others, testified at the Jan. 10 hearing to the Minnesota House Transportation Finance and Policy Committee in favor of a bill to give driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants in the state. 

“We are voting. Our people are voting,” Bello said. “If you don’t pass this bill, people are going to vote you all out.” 

A spokesperson for the office of Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon told The Daily Signal that noncitizen voting is not a problem in Minnesota. Simon beat Crockett in the November 2022 election. 

Common Cause Minnesota Executive Director Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera said Bello did not mean to say either she personally or other DACA recipients were voting. Belladonna-Carrera told The Daily Signal “it was reasonably clear that the ‘we’ the testifier was referencing was the broader Latinx Minnesota communities.”

Crockett contends people are now trying to clean up for the Bello testimony. 

“She didn’t say that in the testimony,” Crockett said. “A spokesperson who was horrified about how brazen she was made that point.”  

Twitter and Facebook are known for more political content, and for more controversy with government collusion to supervise content. Still, Crockett said, this is the first time she had a warning of any kind on social media. 

“I’ve been active on LinkedIn,” Crockett said. “During my campaign, I never got a warning on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, nothing, this was the first time.”

“During My Time as CIA Director and Secretary of State, I Know He Leaked Classified Information” – Mike Pompeo on Adam Schiff (VIDEO)

What is it with these top Democrats and their stealing and leaking of classified documents?

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday officially rejected the appointments of Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell for the House Intelligence Committee.

“I am committed to returning the House Intel Committee to one of genuine honesty and credibility that regains the trust of the American people,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy went off on Schiff to lefty reporters on Tuesday evening after he removed the serial liar from the House Intel Committee.

This was not a surprise move. McCarthy said he would remove Schiff from the committee for weeks now. Schiff was caught numerous time leaking classified material and testimony. He also was caught lying about classified information. The man is a danger to society.

Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo weighed in on Schiff on FOX News this week.

Mike Pompeo: “Adam Schiff lied to the American people, and during my time as CIA director and Secretary of State, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him. Now the fact that Adam Schiff was the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee almost ruined that committee.”

Not a ringing endorsement.

Schiff should be worried about facing charges – and not about committee assignments.

A new ad from American Liberty Fund, written by investigative reporter Laura Loomer, exposes Ronna Romney McDaniel for the grifting fraudster she is.

NEW ALF AD:

“RETIRE RONNA ROMNEY”

I wrote this ad for American Liberty Fund and helped produce it with our talented team.

Please watch and share it ahead of the vote on Jan. 27 so we can ensure Mitt’s niece doesn’t get a 3rd term as @GOPChairwoman. #RetireRonnaRomney pic.twitter.com/Nay5ibiCzz

The ad accuses Ronna of using RNC donor money for luxury travel, private jets, alcohol, personal entertainment, $64,000 worth of new clothing, and cosmetic treatments.

The Gateway Pundit reported on Ronna’s latest scandal of spending millions of donor dollars on luxury expenses since 2017. “The records also include more than $100,000 in hair/makeup services and dry cleaning expenses, which presumably are for McDaniel’s media appearances and wardrobe. Dry cleaning expenses are categorized mainly as office supplies or travel expenses, while the hair/makeup services are categorized as media preparation,” According to Red State.

Ronna reportedly spent $3.1 million on private jet services, $1.3 million on limousine/chauffeur services, $17.1 million on donor mementos, $750,000 on floral arrangements, and $80,000 in alcohol-related expenditures.

The vote for a new RNC Chair will also take place tomorrow at the $900+/night Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach in liberal California.

SCANDAL: RNC Under Ronna McDaniel Has Spent Millions On Private Jets, Luxury Items

Ronna failed at her one job, which is to fight to get Republican candidates elected.

Instead, she allowed the Democrats to steal elections in key swing states like Arizona and Pennsylvania, where she would have you believe low-IQ Katie Hobbs and mentally disabled John Fetterman won their races. She later blamed America First Trump-Endorsed candidates for their losses.

It is time for change at the RNC.

The Gateway Pundit reported earlier that a new Rasmussen poll finds that Mike Lindell tops both Ronna McDaniel and Attorney Harmeet Dhillon as Republican Party Chair.

Wow! Latest Poll Shows Mike Lindell Tops Ronna McDaniel and Harmeet Dhillon in Race for Republican Chair

Republican voters want a change. And Republican voters want a fighter.

Mike Lindell leads Harmeet Dhillon and Ronna McDaniel 30 to 20 to 15 for Ronna.

Ronna is getting spanked, likely due to her record of losing and abusing her donors!

Call your state’s RNC committeemen and demand they withdraw any and all support of Ronna Romney.

The Gateway Pundit will provide updates on tomorrow’s vote!

Via American Liberty Fund:

Laura Loomer: Ronna Romney McDaniel, Mitt Romney’s niece, has been the RNC Chairwoman since 2017. Under her control, Republicans lost the 2018 midterms, the 2020 presidential race, and she failed to deliver a 2022 red wave.

After violating President Trump’s cease and desist order, Ronna scammed GOP voters out of millions of dollars in donations. And what did she do with your money? They used RNC donor money for luxury travel, private jets, alcohol, and personal entertainment. She lied and said she’d use your money to investigate voter fraud, but instead, she bought $64,000 worth of new clothing. She even spent RNC funds on cosmetic and spa treatments.

Looking good, Ronna. It’s time to give the RNC a major facelift. On January 27, pray that Mitt Romney’s niece does not get elected for a third term as RNC Chairwoman free tire or Ronna Romney, paid for by American Liberty Fund not authorized by any candidate or candidate committee.

Mostly Non-American Meta Oversight Board Weighs in on Trump Reinstatement

Meta announced Wednesday that former President Donald Trump would be allowed back on Facebook and Instagram in the “coming weeks,” and Meta’s largely international Oversight Board responded. “Today’s decision to reinstate Mr. Trump on Meta’s platforms sat with Meta alone — the Board did not have a role in the decision,” declared the Oversight Board. The Board, however, was briefed on Meta’s decision-making process. The Oversight Board pontificated on the necessity for “Meta to be transparent” in the use of its “important” new draconian “guardrails” it adopted to censor people. Only five of the 22 Oversight Board members are from the U.S., and many are from countries with no history of protecting speech. “One of the worst mistakes Facebook ever made was creating a foreign-controlled Oversight Board that will apply the wrong standards that end up suppressing free speech rights of Americans,” said Vice President of MRC Free Speech America & MRC Business Dan Schneider. “Our First Amendment is the gold standard. The rest of the world should follow our lead. We shouldn’t succumb to authoritarian oppression.” The Oversight Board called on Meta to disclose the “additional details” behind its decision to unban Trump from Facebook and Instagram: “[T]he Board calls on Meta to provide additional details of its assessment so that the Board can review the implementation of the Board’s decision and recommendations in this case, to define varying violation severities by public figures in the context of civil unrest, and to articulate the way that the policy on public figure violations in the context of civil unrest relates to the crisis policy protocol.” In 2020, MRC TechWatch, now MRC Free Speech America, called out the “radical views” behind the then-new Facebook Oversight Board, noting that it had no First Amendment grounding. Furthermore, members of the Oversight Board were from all over the world. They come from countries that have no free speech history or that pushed censorship and speech restrictions in recent years.  Some of the countries currently represented on the Oversight Board include: Egypt, Pakistan, Mexico, Yemen, the UK and Australia. Less than a fourth of the 22 listed members are American, even though Meta is an American company. The Oversight Board noted that its former decision to uphold Trump’s ban on Facebook and Instagram involved review of Trump’s posts. “The Board agreed that Mr. Trump had violated the platform's policies by praising the people who were rioting in the Capitol at the time, but concluded that the ‘indefinite’ length of the suspension was in violation of the rules and needed to be revisited,” the Oversight Board wrote in its statement. Actually, Trump explicitly called for peace and never condoned any violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Meta imposed a two-year suspension on Trump in May 2021 on top of the temporary Jan. 7 suspension following the Oversight Board’s decision, the statement recapped. Meta announced Jan. 25 that the “risk” from Trump’s accounts “has sufficiently receded,” though it warned it could censor or suspend Trump again at any time. The Oversight Board was approving of Meta’s new censorship restrictions, which could be applied even to accounts that don’t violate Instagram’s and Facebook’s rules but present a supposed “risk.” Because Facebook is never biased when assessing “risks,” right?  Conservatives are under attack.

WATCH: AG Bailey Rips ‘Vast Censorship Enterprise’ Between Big Tech and Biden WH

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey discussed his team’s latest findings from their ongoing lawsuit against the Biden administration for allegedly colluding with Big Tech to censor free speech.  Bailey told the Fox Business Network's The Bottom Line on Jan. 25 that this is “the most important First Amendment case in a generation.” He and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry uncovered “a vast censorship enterprise” and hold massive records of evidence of White House officials, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and State Department. “We’ve uncovered a vast censorship enterprise, coercion, and collusion between officials at the White House and across federal bureaucratic agencies, and their cronies at Big Tech-social media to target and censor free speech in America,” said Bailey.     Bailey noted that the amount of pages of records that he accumulated pertaining to the case now numbered in the tens of thousands: “We have tens of thousands of pages of records, hundreds of pages of depositions. We’ve deposed key officials at the White House, at the FBI, at Homeland Security and the State Department, and we’re not finished yet. We’re gonna continue to root out this vast censorship enterprise that violates American’s free speech, and we’re not gonna stop.”  Bailey mentioned that his team found “the key piece of evidence” that showed how individuals at the White House tried to pressure social media platforms to specifically muffle conservative voices on topics related to COVID-19, the Hunter Biden laptop story and the election interference of 2020.  Bailey explained that his team knows “for a fact” that the FBI’s frequent communications with Big Tech platforms leading up to the 2020 elections resulted in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story. He argued that the public deserved to hear this crucial piece of information to make well-informed decisions at the ballot box. Landry rebuked the censorship collusion in a Jan. 23 New York Post op-ed. “As we dig deeper into discovery in our Big Tech censorship case — Missouri and Louisiana v. Biden — we uncover ever more truly appalling abuses of power that President Biden’s director of digital strategy, Rob Flaherty, admitted come from the highest (and I mean highest) levels of the White House,” Landry wrote. Landry shared a screenshot on Twitter Jan. 6, 2022 illustrating how the White House pressured Facebook to censor Fox News host Tucker Carlson. The Big Tech platform also censored left-leaning COVID-19 vaccine critic Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Facebook reported to the White House that while Kennedy’s post did not violate the platform’s rules, it encouraged “vaccine hesitancy.” Landry emphasized that “no one is safe when the first amendment is violated.”  “But Big Tech’s severe censorship is just the action that is taken to suppress information,” said MRC Free Speech America Director Michael Morris. “Its resulting harm, keeping information from the public — otherwise known as secondhand censorship — is the real problem.” MRC Free Speech America recently released a study showing that Big Tech blocked information that harmed the public 275 million times in 2022. The only information users were left with was “leftist-approved propaganda,” according to Media Research Center President Brent Bozell. Original research from MRC Free Speech America’s CensorTrack.org database also provided influential evidence cited in the Missouri and Louisiana v. Biden lawsuit. Conservatives are under attack. Contact your representatives and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives.

Pfizer Director Physically Assaults James O’Keefe and Veritas Staff, Destroys iPad Showing Undercover Recordings About “Mutating” Covid Virus – NYPD Responds (VIDEO)

Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, physically assaulted James O’Keefe and Veritas staffers on Thursday.

James O’Keefe confronted Walker at a restaurant and showed him the undercover recordings about Pfizer’s plans to potentially mutate the Covid virus.

“You f*cked up!” Walker shouted before destroying the iPad showing the PV undercover recordings about the “mutating” Covid virus.

Project Veritas on Wednesday night released explosive video of Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations, admitting the pharma giant is exploring ‘mutating’ Covid-19 via ‘directed evolution’ so the company can continue to profit off of vaccines.

“One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f**king viruses,” Walker told the undercover Project Veritas journalist.

“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them,” he said in the undercover recordings.

“I’m just someone who’s working in a company that’s trying to literally help the public,” Walker said during the confrontation.

Walker insisted he was just ‘trying to impress his date.’

The NYPD responded to the assault.

JUST IN: 5 Ex-Memphis Police Officers Charged with Murder in Death of Black Motorist, Tyre Nichols

Five ex-Memphis police officers were charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping on Thursday in the death of a black motorist.

The officers, Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith – were fired on Friday after the motorist, Tyre Nichols, died following a violent confrontation during a January 7 traffic stop.

Video of the police officers beating Tyre Nichols will be released on Friday at 6 pm local time, the DA said.


Tyre Nichols

“The actions of all of them resulted in the death of Tyre Nichols and they are all responsible,” Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy told reporters.

NBC News reported:

Five former Memphis police officers were indicted Thursday on murder charges in the death of Tyre Nichols, whose beating following a traffic stop was captured on video that “sickened” a top Tennessee law enforcement official.

The officers — Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith — were fired after police Chief C.J. Davis said they violated department policies during the Jan. 7 stop that led to Nichols’ death.

All five former officers were charged with second-degree murder, two counts of official misconduct, two counts of aggravated kidnapping, one count of official oppression and one count of aggravated assault, prosecutors announced.

Haley and Martin were being held in lieu of a $350,000 bond, while Bean, Mills and Smith will need to post $250,000 to leave custody, jail records showed.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation led the probe and agency director David Rausch said the video will be clear cut.

House Democrats Move to Force Pro-Life Taxpayers to Fund Abortions

House Democrats continue their attack against the pro-life movement, with their latest victim being the long-standing Hyde Amendment.

The House Democrats, led by Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., plan to reintroduce the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance Act, which would repeal the Hyde Amendment and force United States citizens to have their taxes fund abortions.

The Hyde Amendment has been one of the most important pieces of pro-life legislation enacted in United States history. Republicans and Democrats have supported the amendment since its enactment in 1976. The bipartisan amendment prevented Medicaid funds from paying for abortion, and members of Congress and presidents of both parties continued to uphold it for decades.

But the political landscape is different in a Dobbs America, and House Democrats are pursuing every opportunity to attack pro-life legislation. Earlier this year, House Republicans passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, only getting one Democrat to support the pro-life legislation.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, one of America’s leading pro-life groups and defender of the Hyde Amendment, issued a statement about the new legislation.

More than 2.5 million Americans are alive today thanks to the Hyde Amendment, yet pro-abortion Democrats continue to ignore the clear will of the people in their push to impose abortion on demand and even infanticide, paid for by taxpayers, nationwide,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, the pro-life group’s president, said in a statement Thursday.

“Polling released this month confirms 60% of Americans oppose using tax dollars to fund abortion domestically, and 78% oppose using tax dollars to fund abortion abroad,” Dannenfelser added. “That strong opposition transcends gender, race and economic status and even encompasses a full third of rank-and-file Democrats. The answer is to make the Hyde Amendment permanent government-wide, and we support legislation introduced by Rep. Chris Smith, Senator Roger Wicker and their colleagues to do exactly that.” 

The bill will face opposition from the newly Republican-majority House.

Matt Gaetz Introduces the “PENCIL” Resolution – Barring Democrat Adam Schiff Accessing Classified Info and Launching House Ethics Investigation on His Serial Lying


Adam Schiff depiction

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) filed the “PENCIL Resolution on Thursday. The legislation will ban Adam Schiff from accessing classified information. And the legislation, urges Congress to launch and investigation by the House Ethics Committee.

What an excellent idea!

Schiff is well-known for lying openly to the American public during House committee hearings.

Schiff Triggered After Trump’s Defense Team Obliterates Him and Exposes His Lies

Washington, D.C. — Today U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) filed the “Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses Resolution,” or the “PENCIL Resolution.” The resolution expresses the sense of the U.S. House of Representatives that Congressman Adam Schiff (CA-30) should not have access to classified information, should be investigated by the House Ethics Committee, and should have his comments made during any proceeding of Congress regarding Russian Collusion and the Trump campaign be officially struck from the record.

“Congressman Adam Schiff led the effort for years to weaponize lies from the Clinton campaign and a corrupt Department of Justice to smear President Trump while destroying any trust the country had left in America’s intelligence agencies. Speaker McCarthy kept his promise to remove Rep. Schiff from the Intelligence Committee, and with the PENCIL Resolution, we will express the sense of Congress that he should be barred from accessing any classified information at all. He can no longer be trusted by his colleagues in Congress or the American people,” said Congressman Gaetz.

As a member of the “Gang of Eight,” Rep. Schiff is responsible for characterizing critical, sensitive intelligence information to the other members of Congress and the American people. During his time in Congress under President Trump, Rep. Schiff falsely claimed there was “clear evidence on the issue of collusion,” and falsely claimed the Trump campaign accepted help from the Russian government to win the presidency. Meanwhile, a nine-count indictment against the former head of the FBI’s counterintelligence office in New York, Special Agent Charles McGonigal, was unsealed this week. It proved that the very people investigating President Trump for Russian collusion were themselves taking orders from Russian oligarchs. McGonigal accepted illegal foreign payments and schemed to set up a post-career influence-peddling operation while actively working as a senior official for the FBI.

Full text of the PENCIL Resolution can be found HERE. Additionally, the Daily Caller’s full coverage of the “PENCIL Resolution” can be found HERE.

Biden Regime Working With Big Tech And Academia To Adapt Military-Grade AI Used Against ISIS To Target Americans Worried About Vaccine Safety and Election Integrity

The Biden Regime has consistently demonstrated that conservatives are their primary enemies and will utilize various tools to silence them. A report today from Just The News claims the Regime is now adopting tactics formerly used against the Islamic State to censor conservatives.

According to the report, the Regime is colluding with Big Tech, private firms, and academia to use military-grade artificial intelligence to identify so-called “misinformation” online and replace it with the Regime’s preferred narrative. This project is primarily focused on patriots concerned about stolen elections and the safety of vaccines.

The funding for this endeavor goes through the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NSF has already provided millions of dollars in government grants toward restricting law-abiding Americans’ First Amendment rights.

The Gateway Pundit has consistently sounded the alarm on faulty election security and questioned the efficacy and safety of the COVID shots. One can safely assume TGP and other like-minded conservative outlets are squarely in the Regime’s crosshairs.

Here is the story from Just the News:

The government’s campaign to fight “misinformation” has expanded to adapt military-grade artificial intelligence once used to silence the Islamic State (ISIS) to quickly identify and censor American dissent on issues like vaccine safety and election integrity, according to grant documents and cyber experts.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded several million dollars in grants recently to universities and private firms to develop tools eerily similar to those developed in 2011 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in its Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program.

DARPA said those tools were used “to help identify misinformation or deception campaigns and counter them with truthful information,” beginning with the Arab Spring uprisings in the Middle East that spawned ISIS over a decade ago.

The initial idea was to track dissidents who were interested in toppling U.S.-friendly regimes or to follow any potentially radical threats by examining political posts on Big Tech platforms.

Mike Benz, executive director of the Foundation for Freedom Online has compiled a report detailing how this technology is being developed to manipulate the speech of Americans via the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other organizations.

“One of the most disturbing aspects of the Convergence Accelerator Track F domestic censorship projects is how similar they are to military-grade social media network censorship and monitoring tools developed by the Pentagon for the counterinsurgency and counterterrorism contexts abroad,” reads the report.

“DARPA’s been funding an AI network using the science of social media mapping dating back to at least 2011-2012, during the Arab Spring abroad and during the Occupy Wall Street movement here at home,” Benz told Just The News. “They then bolstered it during the time of ISIS to identify homegrown ISIS threats in 2014-2015.”
The new version of this technology, he added, is openly targeting two groups: Those wary of potential adverse effects from the COVID-19 vaccine and those skeptical of recent U.S. election results.

“The terrifying thing is, as all of this played out, it was redirected inward during 2016 — domestic populism was treated as a foreign national security threat,” Benz said.

“What you’ve seen is a grafting on of these concepts of mis- and disinformation that were escalated to such high intensity levels in the news over the past several years being converted into a tangible, formal government program to fund and accelerate the science of censorship,” he said.

Benz went on to describe intricate flows of taxpayer cash funding the far-flung, public-private censorship regime. The funds flow from the federal government to universities and NGOs via grant awards to develop censorship technology. The universities or nonprofits then share those tools with news media fact-checkers, who in turn assist private sector tech platforms and tool developers that continue to refine the tools’ capabilities to censor online content.

“This is really an embodiment of the whole of society censorship framework that departments like DHS talked about as being their utopian vision for censorship only a few years ago,” Benz said. “We see it now truly in fruition.”

Biden to Families Struggling to Put Food on the Table: Buy a New Energy-Efficient Refrigerator (VIDEO)

Joe Biden on Thursday traveled to Springfield, Virginia to deliver a speech at a steamfitters union hall.

Biden attacked “MAGA Republicans” in the House in his speech to union workers.

Joe Biden lied about the state of the economy and false claimed “wages are up and they are growing faster than inflation.”

Then he dropped this gem…

Biden told families struggling to put food on the table to buy a brand new $65,000 electric car or purchase a new, energy-efficient refrigerator to save on tax credits.

“And by the way, families are going to save more than $1,000 a year on tax credits for these vehicles when they purchase one and energy-efficient appliances like refrigerators and washing machines,” Biden said.

Obama Warns About the ‘Raw Sewage’ of Disinformation—Ignores Democrats’ Own Garbage

In the wake of the “Twitter Files,” let’s revisit former President Barack Obama’s warning last April about the spread of misinformation: “You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing that citizens no longer know what to believe.”

Does the “raw sewage” include when Obama falsely said, “The Cambridge police acted stupidly”; that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”; and that racism in America is “still part of our DNA that’s passed on”?

Does raw sewage include the part in Obama’s speech before the United Nations when he invoked the lie of Ferguson; and when Obama embraced Black Lives Matter, a group founded upon the lie that the police engage in systemic racism against blacks?

BLM, after the death of George Floyd, encouraged four months of deadly, violent protests even though the lead prosecutor, a black man, said in his opening statement that neither the police nor the Minneapolis police in general were on trial. He never argued that the officer defendant treated Floyd unlawfully due to Floyd’s race, and the officer was never charged with a hate crime.

Does the raw sewage include President Joe Biden, who, about Charlottesville, insists that then-President Donald Trump “said there were ‘some very fine people on both sides’” of the violent and deadly clash in 2017 even though Trump was referring to the debate about Confederate monuments in the public square?

Does raw sewage include Hillary Clinton and the late Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., calling Trump’s presidency “illegitimate”; when Democratic House Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., called Trump’s “so-called election victory” a “hoax”; when Jimmy Carter said Trump “was put into office” because of Russia; and when Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams claims she lost due to “voter suppression? Yet the media never accused these Democrats of promoting “The Big Lie.”

Does raw sewage include Clinton claiming Trump, about COVID-19, told people “to drink bleach”; when Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insists the southern border is “secure”; and when Democrats say the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling “outlaws abortion,” though it sends the issue back to the states?

Does the raw sewage include Biden’s many false claims, including: that he “had the great honor of being arrested” in South Africa trying to see Nelson Mandela; that he “was raised in the black church”; that he was involved in desegregating restaurants and movie theaters; that his son Beau “died in Iraq”; that his first wife and daughter were killed by a driver “who drank his lunch”; and that Georgia’s new voting law “makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle”—yet, Georgians voted in record numbers?

Does the raw sewage include over 50 “former senior intelligence officials,” who—days before the 2020 election—asserted that the Hunter Biden laptop story had “all the earmarks of a Russian disinformation operation”; that Trump “colluded with Russia” to win the 2016 election; and that on Jan. 6, 2021, Trump committed “insurrection”?

Does the raw sewage include the claim that Trump was first to push the “racist (birther) lie” about Obama, when Clinton’s 2008 campaign actually started it?

Does raw sewage include Obama’s claim that his administration “had no major scandals”? Never mind the Clinton basement unsecured server on which Clinton sent and received classified information in clear violation of the Espionage Act. Yet FBI head James Comey said she “lacked the intent” to break the Espionage Act, though intent is not required.

Does raw sewage include the standard Democrat narrative that “the rich don’t pay their fair share” in taxes, even though the top 1% of earners pay 40% of the federal income taxes?

Does raw sewage include Al Gore’s 2006 prediction, “Unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return”?

Does the raw sewage include Attorney General Eric Holder referring to voter ID as “pernicious” racism, even though the majority of blacks support voter ID; when Biden called MAGA Republicans “semi-fascist”; and when Clinton called half of Trump supporters “deplorable” and “irredeemable”?

Tucker Blasts AG Barr’s Response To Jeffrey Epstein’s Death – “Maybe Someone In The New Republican Congress Should Look Into All Of This” (VIDEO)

The federal government and mainstream press have no interest in finding out what really happened to Jeffrey Epstein.

Tucker Carlson did a segment on his show blasting the investigation by Attorney General William Barr and pointed out the multiple holes in the official story.

Tucker pointed out that only two people have been charged surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein.

They were prison guards that pleaded guilty to falsifying records – they had the charges against them dropped by an Obama-appointed judge last year.

Tucker also mentioned that the initial autopsy of Epstein did not say it was a suicide — but instead ruled it was unclear. It wasn’t until New York City’s chief medical examiner, Barbara Sampson, who was not at the autopsy, overruled this and deemed it a suicide.

#Thread Tucker Carlson's Monologue Demanding Answers About The Death Of Jeffrey Epstein And Calling Out AG Barr's "Investigation"

"3 & a half years after Jeffrey Epstein died, no one has gotten to the bottom of what happened that day & there has been no accountability for it." pic.twitter.com/ePOFWvbhAG

From the video above:

“No one’s going to believe it was a suicide,” Barr fretted to his chief of staff. “There will be conspiracy theories all over the place.” Now, that’s a pretty odd response, if you think about it. At the time, there was no way that Bill Barr could have known for sure how Jeffrey Epstein died. So, you would think as the attorney general, his first concern would be finding out what actually happened, but instead, his first concern was worry that the public might jump to unapproved conclusions about what happened and, in some ways, Bill Barr was right to worry.

Many Americans did not believe that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself, given the strange circumstances of his death, stranger than even most people understood at the time, it was going to take a sustained public relations campaign to convince Americans that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, but Bill Barr was willing to make the effort. Two days later, he flew to New Orleans, gave a speech and said this.

The only people ever punished for the grotesque malfeasance surrounding Epstein’s death were two low-level guards who fell asleep on duty that night. Both pleaded guilty to falsifying government records, but last year, with no real explanation, an Obama-appointed judge dropped all charges against both of them. One of the guards may still work for the federal government. As for getting to the bottom of what happened, despite many promises from many various officials, neither the FBI nor the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General has ever issued a report explaining how Jeffrey Epstein died. Not a word.

So, once again, three-and-a-half years after one of the most widely covered deaths of our time, there are still no answers and there is still no accountability. Why is that? Well, many reasons, probably, but one of them is that Washington veteran Bill Barr, the only man in the modern era to serve as attorney general twice, declared: the Epstein case closed. Now, at first blush, Barr seems to have good reason for doing that. “By the end of 2019,” Barr writes in his memoir, “I was confident that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide by hanging himself.” Now, why did Bill Barr believe that? Well, the first piece of evidence he offers up is this: “The New York City medical examiner had conducted an autopsy and ruled that Epstein killed himself by hanging.” That’s the first piece of evidence. The second is this. It’s a videotape that “confirmed the medical examiner’s findings.”

In other words, everything is fine now. Let’s move on. This was enough for most journalists in Washington. Virtually every subsequent news story about Jeffrey Epstein’s death denounced skeptics of the official story as crazy, who, for whatever reason, were engaged in “baseless conspiracy theories.” What’s amazing in retrospect is that none of these reporters, veterans at The Washington Post, the Associated Press, NBC News, The New York Times, many others, none of them ever thought to revisit Bill Barr’s assessment of Epstein’s death and measure it against the basic tenets of common sense.

If you did that, you saw that what Bill Barr said about Jeffrey Epstein was transparently absurd and very obviously dishonest. Barr began by claiming that the medical examiner who conducted Epstein’s autopsy ruled his death a suicide, but that is not true. The initial cause of death following the autopsy was not suicide, but “pending,” which is to say unclear. The medical examiner who performed the autopsy could not say how Jeffrey Epstein died. Forensic pathologist Michael Baden, who was also present that day, came away believing Epstein had been murdered. After reviewing more than a thousand suicides by hanging in New York state, Baden later said he couldn’t find a single neck injury, not one, that matched the injury that Epstein sustained.

Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself, Baden concluded, he was strangled. The physical evidence he saw at the autopsy made that obvious, but New York City’s chief medical examiner, Barbara Sampson, who was not present at the autopsy, overruled the judgment of those who were. Days later, on the basis of no new evidence or investigation, Barbara Sampson simply declared Jeffrey Epstein’s death a suicide. That was the city’s official but totally unsupported conclusion, which Bill Barr and many others promptly repeated. Why did chief medical examiner Barbara Sampson do that? We don’t know. We called Sampson to ask her, but she hung up on us. Then, there’s the question of the videotape, which Barr cited. Both cameras trained on the door of Jeffrey Epstein’s cell did not work that night famously and to this day, no one has explained why they didn’t work. So, the video footage that Bill Barr said he watched didn’t cover Epstein’s cell, just the entrance to the larger cellblock.

No one came in or out of the tier, Barr said. Therefore, Jeffrey Epstein killed himself. So, let’s consider that claim rationally. On the night of Aug. 9, Jeffrey Epstein was being held in the special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, the most secure part of the city’s federal lockup. It would be physically impossible for a stranger to get in and out of this facility without an electronic pass and without being seen by the countless cameras in place between the street and the locked ninth floor of the building. So, if Jeffrey Epstein was murdered, he was not murdered by an intruder, someone who came into the tier, he was murdered by someone on his own cellblock, obviously.

There were seven other cells on Epstein’s tier and each one housed dangerous criminals. So, if you were looking for a killer, you would figure out who was in those cells, but no one seems to have thought of that or done it. The Bureau of Prisons refused to provide us with a list of the inmates on Epstein’s tier. It’s not clear how many of them were even interviewed by investigators, despite the fact that some of them were transferred out of the facility shortly after Epstein’s death. That’s a baffling oversight. Instead, Attorney General Bill Barr simply assured the country that no one from outside came into Jeffrey Epstein’s tier and declared the case solved and if you think about it, that is a remarkable way to assess a potential crime scene, especially when you consider the source.

Tucker Carlson also posed numerous questions that remain unanswered surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein.

From the video above:

In fact, Jeffrey Epstein himself adamantly denied ever trying to kill himself in prison or out. He denied this to his friends, to his lawyers and to prison psychologists. He said instead that he was injured by another inmate. That’s why he was in the fetal position on the ground. According to David Schoen, who talked to him shortly after that event, Epstein seemed upbeat, happy and confident of his release from jail, but he was very concerned about being hurt by someone in a nearby cell and speaking of nearby cells, were the cells on Epstein’s tier locked for the entire night, the night he was killed? We’ve heard from a source that they were not locked, that inmates were able to move from one cell to another, including into Jeffrey Epstein’s cell. Can the Bureau of Prisons give us clarity on this? Can they prove otherwise? And by the way, who moved Jeffrey Epstein’s body and who gave the order to do that?

Epstein was discovered the morning of Aug. 10 by a part-time prison guard called Michael Thomas, who amazingly was the very same guard who discovered him in the fetal position on the floor after his previous falsely reported suicide attempt, but by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein’s body had been moved to the prison infirmary. That’s a clear violation of federal policy. Who ordered that? And though Jeffrey Epstein had been dead for at least two hours when the guard found him in his cell, by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein was clad in a hospital gown. That means that somebody, for some reason, cut away Jeffrey Epstein’s prison uniform and redressed his stiffening corpse in new clothes. Why would anyone do that?

Then to make it even stranger, Jeffrey Epstein’s corpse was intubated, air was blown into his lifeless lungs. It’s not clear why. Now, there was handheld video of all of this happening. That might explain it, but that video has never been released. In fact, authorities will not even acknowledge that it exists, but it does exist. Nor has the EMT’s account of what they saw that day, their mandatory, so-called prehospital care report, ever been released, nor most strikingly of all, are there photographs of Jeffrey Epstein dead in his cell, and that means it’s impossible to know the position of his body when it was found or how he died.

The GOP must get answers to this!
