Amy Schumer Pitches Colorado As ‘Premier Destination’ … For What? ABORTIONS

On today’s list of people I cannot stand: Amy Schumer. In an elevator-pitch style, Amy Schumer promoted her show “Inside Amy Schumer.” Schumer advocated for women to visit Colorado for its best attraction: being a state that supports the slaughter of the unborn.    “Amy Schumer presents her elevator pitch for why Colorado is the premier destination for a last-minute trip, and why you should at least keep it on your radar (uh, just in case …),” Paramount listed in the video description on YouTube.  The series is set to air on Paramount Plus at the end of October but the promo was enough to verify that I will not be tuning in.  The whole video, Schumer danced around the idea of abortion without explicitly saying it.  “But we’re more than just beautiful wilderness,” Schumer explained when listing all the pros of Colorado. “We also have bustling town centers and access to all the services [dramatic pause] you may need.”  A clip of a “Women’s Health Clinic” played on the screen when Schumer said the word “services” and then the image of a hospital bed with foot stirrups (commonly used in GYN or abortion facilities) flashed on the screen.  Obviously Schumer is advocating for Colorado’s main "pro" --- abortion access.  The video featured a husband and wife couple who explained that visiting Colorado was on their “bucket list of things to do before we die” then the woman explained that she “might have” died if she hadn’t been able to visit Colorado. If it wasn’t clear, the woman was hinting at Colorado's extreme abortion availability and her thankfulness for it.  Schumer's video also highlighted the story of one lady who boasted about her employer paying for her trip to Colorado “they covered travel and time off.” Here, the series was alluding to those hundreds of companies who pledged to help their employees kill their children with ease.  Granted, all of these stories are inevitably scripted presentations and not actual testimonies . Another disturbing part of the video was when Schumer showed a map of the U.S. to give a visual representation of how and why Colorado is a “premier destination.” Colorado was highlighted in blue and Schumer pointed out how people in red-colored Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Nebraska or Oklahoma (places where life is valued) may want to visit Colorado. She also added that Illinois was “also an option” for a great vacay destination if you’ve got the goal of ending your pregnancy.  At the end of the clip, Schumer walked viewers through the use of a private browser to check out different abortion service sites. She also made sure to encourage people to “subscribe to an encrypted VPN internet provider” and to delete search history.   Schumer also insisted that these services are available “for a limited time only,” alluding to the dwindling opportunity to murder an innocent child (good!).  It’s pretty cringe-inducing for people to be so adamant about killing kids that they have to make entire shows glamorizing it. This is not something I’ll be wasting my free time watching. That’s a promise.   

First Openly Trans US Army Officer and Wife Arrested in Plot to Give Medical Records to Russia

U.S. Army Major Dr. Jamie Lee Henry, who came out as the first openly trans officer on 2015, is accused of betraying the military and country he serves by working with his wife Dr. Anna Gabrielian, an anesthesiologist at Johns Hopkins, to give medical records to Russia on patients at Fort Bragg and Hopkins, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday by the Department of Justice. The couple was dealing with an undercover FBI agent posing as a Russian embassy staffer after Gabrielien had allegedly reached out to the Russian embassy. Gabrielian reportedly calimed she was motivated by patriotism for Russia. Gabrielian’s profile at Hopkins says she speaks Russian and English.

Press release by the DOJ details a stunning story:

Major in the United States Army and a Maryland Doctor Facing Federal Indictment for Allegedly Providing Confidential Health Information to a Purported Russian Representative to Assist Russia Related to the Conflict In Ukraine

Baltimore, Maryland – A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Anna Gabrielian, age 36, and her husband, Jamie Lee Henry, age 39, both of Rockville, Maryland, with conspiracy and for the disclosure of individually identifiable health information (“IIHI”), related to their efforts to assist Russia in connection with the conflict in Ukraine. The indictment was returned on September 28, 2022 and unsealed today upon the arrest of the defendants.

Gabrielian is scheduled to have initial appearance at 11:30 a.m. today, in U.S. District Court in Baltimore before U.S. Magistrate Judge Brendan A. Hurson. Henry is also expected to have an initial appearance today, although a time has not yet been set.

The indictment was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron and Special Agent in Charge Thomas J. Sobocinski of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office.

As stated in the indictment, Gabrielian is an anesthesiologist and worked at Medical Institution 1, located in Baltimore, Maryland. Henry, a Major in the United States Army, who held a Secret-level security clearance, is Gabrielian’s husband and a doctor. During the time of the alleged conspiracy, Henry worked as a staff internist stationed at Fort Bragg, the home of the Army’s XVIII Airborne Corps, headquarters of the United States Army Special Operations Command, and the Womack Army Medical Center.

According to the eight-count indictment, Gabrielian and Henry conspired to cause harm to the United States by providing confidential health information of Americans associated with the United States government and military to Russia. Specifically, the indictment alleges that beginning on August 17, 2022, Gabrielian and Henry conspired to provide IIHI related to patients at Medical Institution 1 and at Fort Bragg to an individual they believed to be working for the Russian government in order to demonstrate the level of Gabrielian’s and Henry’s access to IIHI of Americans; their willingness to provide IIHI to the Russian government; and the potential for the Russian government to gain insights into the medical conditions of individuals associated with the United States government and military in order to exploit this information.

Gabrielian and Henry met with an individual they believed to be associated with the Russian government, but who was, in fact, a Federal Bureau of Investigation Undercover Agent (“UC”), in order to convey to the UC their commitment to aid Russia, and to discuss ways in which they could help the Russian government. Gabrielian told the UC that she had previously reached out to the Russian embassy by email and phone, offering Russia her and her husband’s assistance. Gabrielian told the UC that, although Henry knew of Gabrielian’s interaction with the Russian Embassy, she never mentioned Henry’s name to the Russian Embassy. Gabrielian wanted to make sure Henry could deny any knowledge of her actions. On August 17, 2022, Gabrielian met with the UC at a hotel in Baltimore. During that meeting, Gabrielian told the UC she was motivated by patriotism toward Russia to provide any assistance she could to Russia, even if it meant being fired or going to jail. Gabrielian proposed potential cover stories for meeting the UC and stressed the need for “plausible deniability” in the event she was confronted by American authorities about meeting with the UC. Gabrielian also told the UC that, as a military officer, Henry was currently a more important source for Russia than she was, because he had more helpful information, including how the United States military establishes an army hospital in war conditions and information about previous training provided by the United States military to Ukrainian military personnel. Gabrielian arranged to meet with the UC and Henry later that evening.

At about 8:10 p.m. that evening, the indictment alleges that Gabrielian and Henry met with the UC in the UC’s hotel room. During the meeting, Henry explained to the UC he was committed to assisting Russia and had looked into volunteering to join the Russian Army after the conflict in Ukraine began, but Russia wanted people with “combat experience” and he did not have any. Henry further stated, “the way I am viewing what is going on in Ukraine now, is that the United States is using Ukrainians as a proxy for their own hatred toward Russia.” Henry and Gabrielian allegedly offered to provide the UC with private medical records from the United States Army and Medical Institution 1 in order to help the Russian government. During the same meeting, Gabrielian demanded that if she were put at significant risk of arrest, she wanted her and Henry’s children to, “have a nice flight to Turkey to go on vacation because I don’t want to end in jail here with my kids being hostages over my head.” Henry also indicated that he was concerned about passing a background check for his security clearance, telling the UC, “I don’t want to know your name . . . because I want plausible deniability too. In a security clearance situation they want to know names and people and all this stuff.”

As detailed in the indictment, a few days later Gabrielian and the UC again met at the hotel in Baltimore to discuss providing Army medical records to the UC. Gabrielian told the UC that Henry was concerned about violating HIPAA, but Gabrielian had no such concerns. Gabrielian stated that she would check with Henry about providing medical records from Fort Bragg patients and get back in touch. The next day, Gabrielian sent a text to the UC, using coded language, to advise that Henry would provide Army medical records to the UC. On August 31, 2022, Gabrielian and Henry allegedly met the UC at a hotel room in Gaithersburg, Maryland. According to the indictment, Gabrielian provided the UC with IIHI related to two individuals, including the spouse of an employee of the Office of Naval Intelligence, whom Gabrielian pointed out had a medical condition Russia could “exploit.” Henry also allegedly provided IIHI related to five individuals who were military veterans or related to military veterans.

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison for the conspiracy, and a maximum of 10 years in federal prison for each count of disclosing IIHI. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.

United States Attorney Erek L. Barron commended the FBI for its work in the investigation and thanked the U.S. Army Counterintelligence for its collaboration Mr. Barron thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron S.J. Zelinsky, who is prosecuting the federal case.

Interesting excerpt from thread on the indictment: “Henry told the agent Gabrielian instructed Henry to read “Inside the Aquarium: The Making of a Top Soviet Spy.” Feds say the book describes recruitment and training. Gabrielian told Henry, “…it’s the mentality of sacrificing everything…and loyalty from day one.”

Excerpt from the 2015 Brightest Young Things interview with Henry shows how much help he got from the military, only to betray his country a decade later:

BYT: You’ve noted how supportive your commanding officer and soldiers you worked alongside were when you initially came out to them (before you went fully public). Has being publicly out changed that dynamic, or added any pressure or harassment from soldiers who weren’t previously familiar with you?

Jamie: You know, without the military, I would likely have been homeless, become a sex worker, or even committed suicide – what many transgender women unfortunately experience without the social and medical support I’ve received. I know it’s probably hard to believe that I actually considered such things in 2012, but it was in 2012 during a brief stint of homelessness that my commander provided me housing, got me to rehab which led to a lot of healing and self-awareness, and tipped me off to a stellar lawyer. Whatever harassment I’ve received within the military has been nothing compared to the struggle of daily life as a trans person outside the military. Then again, I have a lot of privilege within the military community as both a Major and a physician.

As I mentioned before, I have been forced along the way to be very vulnerable with a large number of people in my work environment. Being openly transgender has only been an extension of what I had already experienced the previous six years. From day to day I really haven’t felt much harassment at all within the military framework from civilian employees or other active duty staff. There is a lot of silence, but there is also sincere support undergirding many of my interactions.

Here’s video from local Channel 13.

MLive reported:

A primary election worker in a Grand Rapids area township is facing two felonies for what Kent County leaders say involved illegally accessing a machine with a thumb drive.

Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker announced the charges Wednesday, Sept. 28 against the man, who worked the Aug. 2 primary in Gaines Township’s Precinct 8.

MLive is not naming the man pending arraignment.

The charges are election law– falsifying returns/records and using a computer to commit a crime.

Kent County Clerk Lisa Posthumus Lyons, in a statement issued Wednesday, said the man’s actions did not affect the election or allow any access to voting machines or ballots.

She said another person observed the man putting a personal thumb drive into an electronic poll book computer. The alleged incident happened after the polls closed.

The poll book contains voter registration data, including confidential, personal identifying information about precinct voters. But it is not connected to any tabulation equipment or the Internet, Posthumus Lyons said.

The accused man is not an employee of Kent County or Gaines Township, but was a resident trained and certified by clerks to work at precincts during elections as well as at absentee ballot counting boards.

Trump Wins: “Sexual Assault” Accuser’s Defamation Case Thrown Out By Appeals Court

Back in 2019, E. Jean Carroll accused then-President Donald Trump of sexual assault.

Carroll claimed that she was sexually assaulted by Trump in the mid-1990s in a dressing room in a department store.

After being barred from suing him over sexual battery due to it being so far in the past, she decided to sue him for defamation.

A federal appeals court ruled that a lower court was wrong to allow Carroll to sue Trump for comments made during his presidency.

The Epoch Times reported:

A federal appeals court in Manhattan handed former President Donald Trump a procedural victory Tuesday in a defamation lawsuit, after famed columnist E. Jean Carroll claimed that Trump had raped her in the 1990s.

In a two-to-one decision on Sept. 27, the panel on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a lower court erred when it ruled that Carroll could sue Trump for defamatory statements during his presidency, given that a federal law, known as the Westfall Act, shields government employees from liability in work-related incidents.

Carroll, 78, sued Trump in 2019, claiming the Republican sexually assaulted her in the mid-1990s in a dressing room at a Bergdorf Goodman department store in Manhattan. Because the alleged attack happened decades ago, Carroll was originally barred from suing over sexual battery, pushing her to sue for defamation over allegedly disparaging comments Trump made about the rape allegation.

During an interview in 2019, Trump denied the allegations — saying that she was “totally lying” and that the alleged sexual assault “never happened.”

The Hill reported:

In an exclusive interview with The Hill, the president vehemently denied the allegations just hours after Carroll detailed the alleged incident during a cable news interview.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” the president said while seated behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.

“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” he said. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”

The NYPD said they would investigate the case if Carroll wanted to bring a case forward.

The Gateway Pundit reported:

E. Jean Carroll has claimed that she did not wash the dress she was wearing after being “raped” by President Donald Trump in the 1990s — but will not agree to allow the NYPD to test it for DNA and prove her outlandish tale.

The 75-year-old writer was asked by CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota if the dress could contain evidence of her allegations, causing the elderly writer to clam up.

“I have no idea; I do not know if the president ejaculated. I have no idea,” Carroll responded.

When informed that there is no longer a statute of limitations on rape cases and that the NYPD has said that they will investigate it if she wishes to bring a case forward — Carroll wasn’t too keen on the idea.

Another win for Trump!

“There’s a Thousand People Killed in 20 Months!” – Reporter Shouts at Far-Left Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner (VIDEO)

Philadelphia is a warzone thanks to the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies.

Far-left Philly District Attorney Larry Krasner remained defiant during an interview with Fox 29 this week when confronted on skyrocketing murder rates in his county.

Carjackings, homicides and violence in Philadelphia have skyrocketed since 2020 thanks to DA Krasner’s efforts to reduce jail and prison populations.

Krasner is too busy prosecuting police officers to do anything about the murders and violent crime in Philadelphia.

Krasner remained defiant as a Fox 29 reporter confronted him on his failure to reduce homicides and keep the people of Philly safe.

“Maybe [your policies] aren’t working?” the Fox 29 reporter asked Krasner.

“It is working!” Krasner quipped.

“There’s a thousand people killed in 20 months!” the reporter shouted.

“It is working!” Krasner insisted.

You Might be a Christian Nationalist But it's more than just shutting out the voices of those who are giving them well-deserved flack. By not allowing people to voice their opinions on the matter -- at least on Instagram -- Los Angeles is inferring that the only acceptable way to react to this announcement is by celebrating the LGBT lifestyle. Any viewpoint that does not display ardent support for what they are doing is deemed hateful and intolerable and subsequently shut down.  Isn’t that slightly hypocritical? If you say its okay for gay people to “Live their truth,” what makes it wrong for people to disagree with their agenda? Shouldn’t anyone that doesn’t support this ideology also be allowed to live in a way that's true to them?  While the Lakers, will never admit it verbally, the answer they declared through their actions is that any voices opposing this agenda are wrong and need to be silenced.

Race Hysteria: USA Today Cites Systemic Racism In Hiring of NFL Coaches

If Black Lives Matter or some other race hustling group had issued the “NFL Coaches Project,” it wouldn’t look much different than the indictment released this week by USA Today. USA Today’s verdict is that the league hasn’t progressed much in racial hiring over the last 40 years, and the league is guilty of systemic racism. It’s just another media claim of racism that does not stand up to scrutiny.  Hard left-tilting writers Nancy Armour and Chris Bumbaca say they unearthed “evidence of subconscious segregation that has helped funnel white assistants to coordinator and head coaching positions while stunting the progress of their Black counterparts.”  The NFL’s executive vice president of football operations is black, but he also contributed to the USA Today race grievance:  Biases are showing up before the (coach) even begins the interview. This is consistent over the last 15 to 20 years but, in particular, over the last few years.  Vincent cited several excuses teams have given for not hiring black coaching candidates. His list includes marginal responsibilities that shouldn’t hold back coaching candidates of any color: the trite responsibilities of actually calling plays and managing the game clock, inability to motivate veteran players, lousy interviews and nervousness. Additionally, some black candidates cited not looking the part of a coach as a rationale for missing out on career advancement.  USA Today mentioned Todd Bowles as a black coach who was passed over for a job during a recent hiring cycle. There are just a few slight problems with that assertion. Bowles is the current head coach of the Miami Dolphins. He was also head coach of the New York Jets, after serving several assistant coaching roles – including defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, where he looked very much the part of Associated Press Assistant Coach of the Year.  Kansas City’s black offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy (appearing in photo), who does not call the plays, has whiffed at numerous head coaching interviews. But it’s always someone else’s fault, it’s always the race card. Vincent says he and others have an entitlement for career advancement:  Nobody can tell me that these men here, any combination you want, that they "don't interview well," that they "lack experience," that they "didn't look a part" or they "seemed nervous in the process." It's hard for me and many others to accept that ... We just felt like this is the best that we have. These men, at minimum, should be presented an opportunity to lead a football franchise at the professional level.  Some of the percentages clearly deflate USA Today’s racial arguments. Of 722 on-field NFL coaches right now, 43.5 percent are non-white. That’s the largest percentage in NFL history, and it’s more than three times the national population of blacks (13 percent). Pittsburgh and Houston both have coaching staffs that are 60 or more percent non-white. So, where’s the beef?  Despite these numbers, Vincent blathered on, "We’re trying to eliminate that bias, promote trust, develop skills and present opportunities.” Which plays right into USA Today’s race card hand.  Speaking on one of his recent Fearless videos, The Blaze’s Jason Whitlock refuted the race hysteria. He said blacks are more interested in playing pro football than coaching.

Gaffe House: Nets Ignore Kamala’s Big Overseas Flub Hours After Biden’s Mental Flatulence

Less than 24 hours after President Biden called out for Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (R-IN) despite the fact that she passed away nearly two months ago, Vice President Kamala Harris insisted during a speech Thursday in South Korea that America “shares a very important relationship with the Republic of North Korea.” Naturally, the broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC all ignored this story despite the fact that all three had at least three segments of other stories not related to the devastation caused in Florida by Hurricane Ian. ABC’s Good Morning America covered Harris’s visit, but again, said nothing of her embarrassing gaffe that was very quickly explained away by a journalist from the taxpayer-funded Voice of America.     “Now to Vice President Kamala Harris on a mission to South Korea this morning just days after North Korea fired two ballistic missiles into the sea,” GMA co-host and former Clinton official George Stephanopoulos began. Foreign correspondent James Longman followed from London with more on North Korea’s launch of “two short-range ballistic missiles towards South Korea's eastern waters” for “their second test in a week.” “Now, Kamala Harris visited the demilitarized zone. She was seen looking through binoculars from an observation deck. She also spent time speaking to U.S. service members...The visit was aimed, as these always are, at shoring up support for the south,” he added. The rest of the 67-second segment touched on fears of North Korea launching more missiles to go along with the “18...so far this year” and a possible nuclear test “as early as next month although, as is often the case with North Korea, it’s impossible to know for sure”. But, as per Harris’s gaffe that the U.S. and North Korea are tight, there should be some optimism that the two sides will fix things pronto. As my colleague Scott Whitlock reported, at least NBC’s Today got in their segment about bras. Thursday’s segment was brought to you by advertisers such as Kohl’s and Liberty Mutual.

Kamala Harris Declares U.S. “Alliance with the Republic of North Korea” in Gaffetasctic Visit to DMZ

On the edge of World War Three, Joe Biden sees dead people and Kamala Harris isn’t sure who the U.S. is allied with in the decades-long military standoff in the Korean peninsula. Sleep well, America.

Kamala Harris closed out her Asia trip on Thursday with a visit to the DMZ at the South and North Korea border where she marveled that North Korea is “so close!”, and declared the U.S. has an alliance with North Korea.

Video clip posted by the RNC: KAMALA HARRIS: “The United States shares a very important relationship, which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea. And it is an alliance that is strong and enduring.”

Harris also looked out at North Korea from an observation post, as reported by ABC News, “Vice President Kamala Harris peers through her binoculars into North Korean territory from the DMZ. Harris: “It’s something to actually see this with your own eyes. So close.” Military officer: “50 meters away ma’am.”

This Time, Germans Can Prevent a World War if They Want

“Thank you, USA” – Polish MEP Radek Sikorski deleted his Tweet

Joe Biden’s push for all-out war against Russia has ramped up into overdrive. Are we on the verge of a major land war in Europe? Commentary by Sven von Storch.

The Biden administration’s plans call for Ukraine to attack Russia with heavy weapons soon.

The gloves are off on both sides. High explosives will be deployed and high human casualties expected on both sides. Russia will respond accordingly.

It is still unclear how NATO will react, officially and unofficially. But insiders assume NATO will then enter the war. Everyone can imagine what the consequences will be for the people of Germany and Europe.

NATO soldiers have been assuming strategic positions for a long time, and not just on NATO territory. Drones and planes have been flying and taking off from Ramstein AB in Germany for quite some time, and are actively involved in the preparations for war and more. The political and military leadership in Russia is aware of this, too.

A war like this is not a spontaneous decision. A war like this takes a long time to prepare. And the preparations on the part of the USA appear to be almost complete.

In this war, President Joe Biden does not care about freedom and democracy. What the Biden administration wants is to eliminate Russia from the world stage as a global player. It’s the Great Game of the 21st Century. What the Biden administration wants is to maintain the position of the USA as the premiere superpower of the world, at all costs.

It also seeks to permanently separate Germany and Europe from Russia. And it’s also about making Germany dependent on US energy, which means a lot of money for the US companies involved. This war is a business model for friends of Joe Biden.

Preparations to eliminate Russia as a global player have been underway since 1996. Angela Merkel already knew it. And Olaf Scholz knows it today, too. Since then, the US has been waging a hybrid war against Russia to implement regime change in Moscow and appropriate its raw materials, as well as eliminate Russia as a competitor on the global stage. This hybrid war was only interrupted by the Trump administration, which wanted peace and negotiations instead of war.

Can Germany stop this war?

Germany can stop this war by deliberately obstructing the Biden administration’s avenues for war, and re-assuming its historic role as a peace broker through negotiation and the search for a fair, balanced solution.

The Scholz government can stop playing Biden’s vassal and use its power as a sovereign state to remove the preconditions in Germany for a US war.

Scholz is a weak chancellor. But for the dramatic events we are experiencing, he is perhaps the lesser evil compared to the other bellicose and exchangeable political cutouts – foreign minister Baerbock, economics minister Habeck, finance minister Lindner, Christian Democrat head Merz or Bavarian governor Söder.

If any one of them were chancellor today, all hope for peace in Ukraine and for Europe would be lost.

If Scholz is unable to muster the strength to stand up for peace, it is time the Germans did so themselves. It’s time for the Germans to take up the banner of peace and line the streets, demanding liberty and peace. Every citizen must stand up and be heard, contact their local politicians, mayors, councilors, representatives, ministers and the German chancellor to  request they immediately seek peace in Ukraine.

The drive for liberty and peace can only come from us citizens now.

If this doesn’t happen, the Ukraine war and the battlefield will come to Western Europe and to Germany. Scholz knows that.

That way, another global competitor can be cast from the global playing field: Germany and Europe.

It is no coincidence that the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were sabotaged this week. That kind of operation takes planning and calculation.

What is happening today is devised and carried out by ruthless people, who are nothing like you and me. Only if we citizens stand up now can we prevent the catastrophe and a land war in Europe.

Are you ready? I am.

Fox News Crushes CNN And MSNBC — Dominates Cable With 9 Of The Top 10 Shows

Fox News dominated the third quarter of 2022 – the sixth straight quarter Fox News was number one in cable news.

They averaged 1.4 million viewers — beating both MSNBC and CNN by a huge margin.

Fox News also won in primetime averaging 2.2 million viewers.

Fox News reported:

Fox News Channel finished the third quarter of 2022 as cable’s most-watched network among both total and primetime viewers as Americans tuned in for information and analysis during a busy news cycle that featured everything from ongoing economic woes to the FBI raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

The busy quarter also included continued coverage of the war in Ukraine, the death of Queen Elizabeth and around-the-clock political news. Fox News averaged 1.4 million total day viewers during the quarter, crushing No. 2 MSNBC’s average viewership of 783,000 as CNN, ESPN and HGTV also landed in the top five. It was the sixth straight quarter that Fox News finished No. 1 in the category, airing 94 of the top 100 telecasts in cable news along the way.

During the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., Fox News dominated with 2.2 million average viewers to outdraw MSNBC and CNN combined. MSNBC averaged 1.3 million, followed by ESPN, HGTV and Hallmark. CNN settled for a primetime average of only 717,000 and failed to crack the top five as Fox News was the highest-rated cable news network during primetime for the 83rd straight quarter.

Fox News’ Gutfeld once again dominated late-night, averaging over 2 million viewers.

In the head-to-head battle between Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow, and her replacement Alex Wagner, Hannity won the rating battle — averaging 2.6 million compared to 1.8 million from Rachel Maddow and Alex Wagner.

Deadline reported:

Fox News noted that Greg Gutfeld’s show topped “all of late-night for second consecutive month,” but that claim that comes with a big huge asterisk. While his show had its highest rated quarter, it is a late-night show only in one part of the country, as it is not time delayed for the western time zones. So in Los Angeles, it airs at 8 PM.

Also of note: September marked the first full month of MSNBC’s unusual arrangement in which Rachel Maddow anchors on Mondays at 9 PM ET and Alex Wagner hosts the rest of the weeknights.

In its release, Fox News noted that Hannity beat Wagner “by double and triple-digit advantages.” MSNBC said that the Maddow-Wagner combination averaged 1.7 million total viewers at that hour in Q3, with The Rachel Maddow Show averaging 2.5 million and up 15% year over year. Wagner’s show, the network said, averaged 1.6 million viewers, a 36% increase versus MSNBC Prime, the show that filled the slot since Maddow went to one night a week in May.

Fox News was responsible for nine of the top 10 shows in quarter three.

Only The Rachel Maddow Show/Alex Wagner Tonight were able to sneak into the top 10.

The Five was the top show — averaging 3.2 million viewers.

Ad Week reported:

Here’s the 10-most-watched on cable news for Q3 2022, as per live-plus-same-day Nielsen data.

Biden’s Bumbling and Stumbling Could Start World War III

Conservative political pundits love to air videos of Old Joe’s erratic, often unintelligible remarks. There are sure to be “replays” of many of these in campaign commercials during the nonstop run-up to the 2024 elections.

President Joe Biden’s uncertain, dithering, wrong-headed decisions and outright lies on everything from the COVID-19 pandemic to the catastrophe on our southern border, inflation, and errant energy policy inflict real pain on the American people. But all these pale in comparison to his cognitive disarray on matters of national security. Presidential weakness in thought, word, and deed when dealing with “near peer adversaries” could well result in war.

For the good of our republic, Biden’s handlers should avoid placing our sadly compromised commander in chief in situations where his meandering mind compromises the security of our nation.

His Sept. 18 appearance on “60 Minutes,” where all hands were starry-eyed sycophants, is but one recent example. Host Scott Pelley asked, “So unlike Ukraine, to be clear, sir, U.S. forces, U.S. men and women, would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?” Biden answered, “Yes.”

Afterward, CBS posted in the online transcript of the “60 Minutes” fiasco, “After our interview a White House official told us U.S. policy has not changed. Officially, the U.S. will not say whether American forces would defend Taiwan. But the commander-in-chief had a view of his own.”

We are not alone in wondering, who is running the U.S. government?

Since then, Russian President Vladimir Putin has again warned about using “all necessary means [code words for nuclear weapons] to defend Russian homeland.” On the edge of winter, he has shut down the Nord Stream 1 natural gas pipeline to Europe, called up at least 300,000 “reservists” for duty in his thus far failed invasion of Ukraine, and is now asserting a phony “referendum” affirming Russian annexation of Ukrainian territory.

Putin’s only real friends are Communist China, Iran, Syria, Nicaragua, Cuba, and North Korea. He is begging them for tanks, armored vehicles, helicopters, aircraft parts, unmanned aerial vehicles [“drones”], ammunition, guided missiles, anti-aircraft weapons, artillery pieces, and spare parts for everything.

Meanwhile, Putin is facing unprecedented protests across Russia against horrific casualties in Ukraine, draft dodgers fleeing the country, increasing unemployment, shortages of food and basic necessities, and a pro-nationalist revolt against a prisoner of war swap with Ukraine.

Putin is on the ropes. His only hope is to hang on through the winter while fighting a war of attrition against the Ukrainian people. And the only “world leaders” who can save him are Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing and Biden in Washington.

Our goal should be for Ukraine to restore all its territory and national sovereignty. Xi is waiting to see what ensures Taiwan being recognized as part of Communist China with the least possible cost to the Chinese Communist Party.

Biden, timorous at best, flaccid and confused at worst, does not seem to understand the disastrous consequences of appearing weak. After Putin’s thinly veiled nuke threats, Biden’s undersecretary of defense for policy, Colin Kahl, said, “Ukraine’s success on the battlefield could cause Russia to feel backed into a corner, and that is something we must remain mindful of … “

That’s precisely the kind of weak thinking behind Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. It’s part of his abysmal decision to reopen “talks” with Iran on building nuclear weapons and the means of delivering them on Israel and the United States. As pointed out in our last column, it was this president’s muddled mind that turned the brightest and bravest military force in world history into demoralized Woke Social Justice Warriors.

This senior moment

(Scott Johnson)

Yesterday at the White House conference on hunger etc. President Biden sought to acknowledge deceased Rep. Jackie Walorski among those in attendance for the event (White House transcript here):

And I want to thank all of you here, including bipartisan elected officials like Representative McGovern, Senator Braun, Senator Booker, Representative — Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie? I didn’t think she was — she wasn’t going to be here — to help make this a reality. And thanks to Senator Stabenow, Representative DeLauro for their leadership.

Not surprisingly, several White House reporters sought an explanation from press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. The communications team had put their heads together following Biden’s remarks and come up with a story, but the story is somewhere beyond farfetched.

I think I have pulled out from the transcript all the questions and answers on Biden’s senior moment. This is how it went:

Q What happened in the hunger event today? The President appeared to look around the room for an audience member, a member of Congress who passed away last month. He seemed to indicate she might be in the room. What happened there?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: So the President was, as you all know — you guys were watching today’s event, a very important event on food insecurity. The President was naming the congressional champions on this issue and was acknowledging her incredible work. He had — he had already planned to welcome the congresswoman’s family to the White House on Friday. There will be a bill signing in her honor this coming Friday.

So, of course, she was on his mind. She was of top of mind for the President. He looks — very much looks forward to discussing her remarkable legacy of public service with them when he sees her family this coming Friday.

Q He said, “Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie? She must not be here.”

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: No, I totally understand. I just — I just explained she was on top of mind. You know, this wasn’t — what we were able to witness today and what the President was able to lift up in this — at this conference at this event was how her — her focus on wanting to deal with, combat food — food insecurity in America. And this is something that he was lifting up and honoring.

And, again, he knows that he’s going to see her family this coming Friday. There’s a bill signing that’s going to happen in renaming a VA clinic in Indiana after the late congresswoman. He knows that he is going to see her family, and she was at top of mind.

* * * * *

Q And just one more quick follow-up, because I’m trying to get my head around the response. If the late congresswoman was top of mind for the President and her family was expected to be here and that’s what he was thinking about, what — why was he looking for her? I’m not trying to be snarky here. But I —

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: No, I mean — and I’m —

Q I don’t understand the connection between what you’re saying and what he said there.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: And, again, I think people can understand, I think the American people out there who, you know, watch the briefing from time to time, maybe at this moment, will understand when someone is at top of mind. And — and this was such an important — such an important event, when we’re talking about hunger, when we’re talking about food insecurity, when we’re talking about these champions, these congressional champions who were in the room, who have worked in a bipartisan way.

You know, we don’t talk much about bipartisan actions that we see in Congress at this time. And as he was naming folks, he — she was on top of mind, and he understands and knew that she was — he was going to see her family on Friday for this bill signing.

Again, I don’t think it’s all that unusual to have someone top of mind, especially as there’s a big event — two big events — today and also Friday — that is going to occur. And so he’s going to see her family. They’re going to honor her. They’re going to celebrate her. And he will do a bill signing for this really critical — let’s not forget — this critical, important issue for millions and millions of Americans across the country.

* * * * *

Q I’m sorry to have to do this, but I’m compelled to ask you to go one more time back to the question about Congresswoman Walorski.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I’m not sure why. Why? Why one more time?

Q Well, because I think — frankly, honestly, I think the memory of the congresswoman in history requires some clarity here.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: Hmmm —

Q Can you explain where the mistake was made? Did the Pres- — was the President confused? Was something written in the teleprompter that he didn’t recognize? Can you just help us understand what happened?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I mean, you’re jumping to a lot of conclusions.

Q No, I’m simply seeing — seeking to find —

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: No, but you’re — but I —

Q — out what happened here.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: No, I hear you, Steven. I’m — I’m answering the question, that you’re jumping to a lot of conclusions.

I just answered the question. If I had said — if that had been the case, I would have stated that. Right? I clearly have stated what you just laid out.

What I had said is that she was on top of mind and that he is going to see her family in just two days’ time, on Friday, to honor her, to honor her work, to honor — to honor her legacy, if you will. I just mentioned this. It’s going to be a renaming of a VA clinic in Indiana in her name. And, you know, that is — that is what he was thinking of.

He was thinking about her as he was — as he was naming out and calling out the congressional champions on this issue — on this really critical issue that’s going to help millions of Americans. And that is — that is — that is what the President was focused on.

Q Would you be prepared to release the prepared remarks that the President had in the teleprompter just so we could understand?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I’m not understanding why — why that would be — would be necessary. We always share the remarks that the President had — even, you know, delivered. That’s probably going to be up on the website. Not really sure what that has to do with anything.

I just answered the question about her being on top of mind. I don’t think that’s any — that’s unusual. I feel like many of us have gone through that particular, you know, time where someone is on top of mind and you call them out and you mention them. Especially in this — this type of context, if you think about how he’s going to the see the family in two days; if you think about how, when he sees them in two days, it’s going to be for such an important moment, assigning — signing a piece of legislation that’s going to rename a VA clinic in her state — that’s important — if you think about this issue and how important this issue is.

And he was, again, calling out congressional champions for this particular issue.

* * * * *

Q Lastly, I just wanted to return to this question of the congresswoman. And I think we all totally get why she’s top of mind. You’ve made that case pretty effectively.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: Well, thank you.

Q But I think the confusing part is why, if she and the family is top of mind, does the President think that she’s living and in the room?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I don’t find that confusing. I mean, I think many people can speak to sometimes when you have someone top of mind, they are top of mind. Exactly that. And it is also — if you put it into the context, it’s not like it happened without — outside of context, right?

It happened at an event where we were cha- — we were calling out the champions — congressional champions, in particular, of this issue — this important issue, when it comes to food insecurity, something that this administration has led on — led on from the beginning of this administration, not just across the country but also globally.

You heard him talk about food insecurity last week at the U.N. and the investments that we have put forward as — as the — as the United States of America and helping — and helping deal with that.

Look, he was at an event — you all saw, you all watched, which is why you’re asking the question — right? — where he was calling out, again, congressional leaders — a bipartisan leadership that we have seen on this particular issue.

And, again, he’s going to see her family in just two days, and she was on top of mind. I mean, I don’t — that is — I mean, that is — that is not an unusual — unusual scenario there.

Q Karine, I have John Lennon top of mind just about every day, but I’m not looking around for him anywhere.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: When you sign a bill for John Lennon — Lennon as president then we can have this conversation.

Okay —

Q Why doesn’t he just apologize?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: — go ahead. Go ahead.

(Cross-talk by reporters.)

Q Thanks, Karine. There are —

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead.

Q These moments of confusion are happening with increasing frequency.

Q Why not just apologize?

Jean-Pierre never did get around to answering that last question. Something — something other than love — means he can’t say “I’m sorry.”

Paging Babylon Bee? WashPost Columnist Rants ‘7 Ways a Recession Could Be Good for You’

A Washington Post columnist downplayed the plight of the millions of Americans who are struggling under high inflation, giving them “seven silver linings” for recession.  “Hey, a recession isn’t all bad news,” Washington Post personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary wrote in what read more like an op-ed than a news story. The headline of the Sept. 28 story was downright insulting to the millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet: “7 ways a recession could be good for you financially.” In her logic, “[A]s bad as things are — rising interest rates, high inflation, stock market tumbling — the economy hasn’t imploded as it did during the Great Depression.”   In other words, don’t worry, be happy! At least America hasn’t reached Great Depression levels of economic instability. Yikes. “Of course, times are tough — and for some people, much more than others. But remember that fear will not help you make wise financial decisions,” Singletary patronized to her readers. [Emphasis added.]  If that wasn’t bad enough, Singletary quoted former President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural speech in an attempt to convince the American people that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself” on recession. But even there, she hedged. “Here are seven silver linings if we are heading into a recession.” [Emphasis added].  She pointed to (1) housing prices, (2) saving rates, (3) the I bonds inflation rate, (4) the dollar, (5) unemployment, (6) used car prices and (7) student loan forgiveness to make her point.  The economy contracted for its second quarter in a row in August, meeting the traditional definition of a recession. But a “recession” means something different in The Washington Post’s universe, it seems.  Singletary continued to give unsolicited advice about the bright side of a recession. “While many people are hurting, there may be ways to cushion the downside,” she wrote.  She continued: “Unemployment is still relatively low. People with jobs and money to spare can spend on luxuries such as a vacation.”  But Brownstone Institute President Jeffrey Tucker blew up the liberal media’s narrative on the “red hot” job market in an August column in The Epoch Times headlined “The Jobs Hoax.” The economy is forcing people to pick up “second and third jobs,” Tucker explained. He later warned against trusting media spin on the economy  in an exclusive interview with MRC Business, “so we don’t find ourselves living in an Orwellian world, in which the government is forever broadcasting great news about the great glories of life while people are at home suffering and dying and wondering why their electricity bill is three times what it was six months ago.” To top it all off, Singletary celebrated President Joe Biden’s legally dubious student loan forgiveness plan, comparing him to Roosavelt using “his executive power to wage war against the economic emergency gripping the United States.”  Conservatives are under attack. Contact The Washington Post at 202-334-6000 and demand it quit telling falsehoods to its readers that a “recession could be good” for them “financially.”

Biden Gaffe Watch Day #2: Here’s What They’re Covering Instead of Cringe Shout Out to Dead Rep

Joe Biden Gaffe Watch: Day #2. As we noted on Wednesday night, the networks avoided the cringe-inducing moment when the President asked where a recently deceased Congresswoman was, wondering of Jackie Walorski: “Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” All three evening newscasts censored the President’s latest awkward moment.   How about Thursday? Despite an available six hours of air time, ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today all avoided it as well. But what about Hurricane Ian threatening Florida, you might ask? Would there be time? The networks rightly offered detailed coverage on this dangerous storm and all who were impacted by it.      But there was still time to cover Biden’s latest example of being confused in public. For instance, ABC’s Good Morning America managed to devote five minutes and six seconds to Hocus Pocus 2. Sounding like a commercial for his Disney overlords, co-host George Stephanopoulos enthused that the original has “come to define Halloween for a generation of kids and their parents.” Shilling for his corporate parent, he reminded, “[Hocus Pocus 2] starts streaming tomorrow on Disney+!”      GMA allowed another five minutes and 51 seconds for a cooking segment with reporter Stephanie Ramos. They went with this despite ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega being one of the journalists who pressed the White House for answers at a press briefing. Over on the Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie sold products that are available on the Today show websites, offering deals on “wonderknit bralettes and bikinis,” “drop hoop earrings, “plant-based milk makers” and “bedding collections.” This went on for five minutes and eight seconds. That was followed by a four minute and 25 second cooking segment with Gabby Dalkin.  CBS Mornings was the only show that devoted all two hours to the hurricane. That doesn’t excuse the co-hosts from covering Biden’s latest embarrassment. But at least it can be argued as a decision to focus on serious things. ABC and NBC have no excuse for not ignoring the Biden gaffe. No excuse other than Biden Protection Duty. 

Noah Mocks Biden's Latest Gaffe, Other Late Night Hosts Ignore

Of the six regular late night comedians, only Comedy Central’s The Daily Show host Trevor Noah used his Wednesday show to highlight President Biden’s latest gaffe where he sought out Rep. Jackie Walorski, who died in a car crash in August. After running down a list of what he considers to be Biden’s accomplishments, Noah declared, “In fact, many people are actually saying that Biden might have a really good shot at winning a second term in office. All he needs to do though is avoid doing stuff like this.”     After playing a clip of the gaffe, Noah continued to highlight the awkwardness of the situation, “No, no, Joe what are you doing? That's so awkward, and his explanation didn't help, you know, he’s like “of course I knew Jackie wasn't there, I was looking for Jackie Kennedy where's Jackie Kennedy, where--where are you, Jackie, where's Jackie O.”  Choosing to look on the bright side of life, Noah continued, “Look, I mean, I guess on the up side at least he noticed she wasn't there. This is a good thing. Yeah, it could’ve been much worse if he was like ‘where’s Jackie? Oh, there she is, there’s Jackie, everyone look at Jackie.’” Continuing with the sarcastic optimism, Noah concluded, “And look I know a lot of people are saying this is another example of Biden's brain being foggy but I think if anything, this makes Biden a better president. Yeah, think of how hard he must be working to keep Americans safe knowing that Osama Bin Laden is still out there somewhere. ‘Where is he, where is he, Jack where is he?’” While Noah highlighted Biden’s latest moment of indignity, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, and Seth Meyers all ignored it. Meanwhile, James Corden discovered what he considers to be Biden’s “biggest gaffe yet”: not holding a conference with the leaders of various Pacific island countries in Fiji. Ultimately, he also ignored the real gaffe. This segment was sponsored by DoorDash. Here is a transcript for the September 28 show: Comedy Central The Daily Show with Trevor Noah 9/28/2022 11:06 PM ET TREVOR NOAH:  In fact, many people are actually saying that Biden might have a really good shot at winning a second term in office. All he needs to do though is avoid doing stuff like this.  MALE REPORTER: An awkward moment for President Biden today at a White House conference. While calling out people in the audience he accidentally included Indiana Congresswoman Jackie Walorski who was killed in a car crash over the summer.  JOE BIDEN: I want to thank all of you here including bipartisan elected officials like Representative McGovern, Senator Braun, Senator Booker, Representative-- Jackie, you here? Where’s Jackie? I don't think she was -- she wasn’t going to be here—to help make this a reality. NOAH: No, no, Joe what are you doing? That's so awkward, and his explanation didn't help, you know, he’s like “of course I knew Jackie wasn't there, I was looking for Jackie Kennedy where's Jackie Kennedy, where--where are you, Jackie, where's Jackie O.”  Look, I mean, I guess on the up side at least he noticed she wasn't there. This is a good thing. Yeah, it could’ve been much worse if he was like “where’s Jackie? Oh, there she is, there’s Jackie, everyone look at Jackie.” People are like “There’s no Jackie” “she’s there everyone sees Jackie.” And look I know a lot of people are saying this is another example of Biden's brain being foggy but I think if anything, this makes Biden a better president. Yeah, think of how hard he must be working to keep Americans safe knowing that Osama Bin Laden is still out there somewhere. “Where is he, where is he, Jack where is he?”

Egotistic Chelsea Clinton: “We Were The Reason Fox News Was Created”

For the Clintons, it’s always all about the Clintons.

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton did an interview with Variety for their “Power of Women” issue.

They have a new documentary series “Gutsy” — which is going to explore the lives of prominent women.

Will Marjorie Taylor Greene be on the list?

Nope.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Hillary Clinton announced viewers will be able to join her and daughter Chelsea Clinton on a journey exploring the lives of prominent women beginning this fall.

Clinton announced their documentary series Gutsy will premiere Sept. 9 on Apple TV+.

Gutsy is an eight-part docuseries following the mother-daughter duo as they discuss topics such as life, careers, and courage with high-profile women and other mothers and daughters, including Gloria Steinem, Jane Goodall, Kim Kardashian, Megan Thee Stallion, Goldie Hawn, and Kate Hudson.

Hillary and Chelsea got their glamor shot on Variety’s cover:

Image

During the interview, Chelsea Clinton said that her family was the reason Fox News was created.

She then smeared Fox News — saying it has a “destructive impact.”

Variety reported: 

Your family was the first great target of Fox News’ approach.

Chelsea: We were the reason that Fox News was created. Because Rupert Murdoch recognized a great market opportunity.

As a media enterprise on a much smaller scale than Fox, do you see yourselves as fighting back?

Chelsea: Climate change illuminated where Fox News was willing to go and its destructive impact. It’s not singularly about Fox News; it’s also about conservative and right-wing enterprises that sprung up during the 1990s and early 2000s. I’m 42, and when I was in junior high, two-thirds of Americans knew human activity is partly responsible for climate change. The right proved to themselves, “We can hit people with relentless misinformation and every night pipe into their homes to disbelieve scientists — what else could be possible?” Today, with COVID, it’s the same playbook.

Hillary Clinton also whined about the power of Fox News.

She called for her side to be more “relentless” and “to point out the dangers, point out the falsehoods, point out the hypocrisy.”

The Independent reported:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, added that the power wielded by the news network remained “quite frustrating because they get away with it”.

“The so-called mainstream media, even the so-called progressive media, is just not as relentless in rebutting, refuting, and making clear that this is nothing but a play for profits at the cost of truth,” she said.

“Tech companies, the rest of journalism, ordinary people with platforms, we haven’t done enough to point out the dangers, point out the falsehoods, point out the hypocrisy.”

Hillary Clinton has a long history of lying — yet instead smears conservatives as misinformation.

Outrageous!

Key message: we are thankful for American support, US weapons were key for defending Kyiv & making a successful Kharkiv counteroffensive, however, this is not enough to liberate all our occupied territories where people are tortured and killed by Russians.

REPORT: Dr. Fauci’s Income Net Worth Nearly Doubled During Pandemic While 200,000 Small Businesses Closed Down Due to His Policies

A new report by Open the Books reveals that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s net worth nearly doubled during the COVID pandemic.

Facui’s wealth soared by $5 million during the pandemic as he shut down and bankrupted businesses across the country.

Up to 200,000 extra small businesses closed their doors during the pandemic. That was on top of the 600,000 businesses that close in a given year.

Maybe this explains what Dr. Fauci would not answer Senator Rand Paul’s questions on how top doctors were being compensated by the vaccine companies.

RAND PAUL BRINGS THE FIRE! Grills Fauci on Royalties NIH Research Doctors Received from Vaccine Companies! (VIDEO)

Maybe this explains why Fauci was so insistent on promoting the failed experimental vaccines?

Via Open the Books.

 

WASHINGTON – Government spending watchdog OpenTheBooks.com has released an analysis of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s 2021 financial disclosure form after receiving it from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Wednesday.

The nonprofit’s team of auditors found much of their previous forecasting to be confirmed and that the Fauci household’s wealth had soared to over $12.6 million. During FY20 and FY21, the height of the pandemic, Fauci’s household net worth rose by $5 million.

Also confirmed is that Fauci has continued earning more than the President of the United States. In 2021, he received $456,000 in compensation. He’s already told the Washington Post that the number is ballooning to $480,000 for 2022.

ANALYSIS: COMPENSATION, INVESTMENT GAINS, AWARDS, TRAVEL PERKS, PRIVATE ROYALTIES

OpenTheBooks.com has persistently fought for transparency around NIH’s finances and whether it impacts their public health decisions, as well as for the compensation of Dr. Fauci and his wife Christine Grady. Grady is Chief of NIH Clinical Center’s Department of Bioethics. While he out-earns the President, she out-earns the Vice President of the United States. Grady collected $238,970 in 2021 and has earned over $1.6 million since 2015.

OpenTheBooks.com Founder and CEO Adam Andrzejewski is available for bookings and comments on the latest findings.

BACKGROUND

The watchdog’s years-long effort includes four lawsuits with the Department of Health and Human Services over its lack of transparency.

The organization’s investigation into private royalties paid to NIH and its scientists has sparked interest from a group of senators led by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who has vowed to continue investigating after Fauci’s retirement. He and four more senators on the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee have written NIH demanding answers. The findings also led Rep. John Moolenaar (R-Mich.) to question NIH acting director Lawrence Tabak directly in a public hearing.

OpenTheBooks.com reported Dr. Fauci’s 2021 salary in Forbes Magazine, which precipitated his questioning by Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Ks.) about why the information isn’t easily available to the public. The tense exchange ended with Fauci audibly referring to Marshall as a “moron.”
