Now, onto the news from the weekend that was …
DONALD J TRUMP: The world has finally woken to the truth about the Wuhan virus. Now it’s time to hold China to account
Three years ago, I declared that COVID-19 almost certainly came from the Chinese Wuhan lab. Now, the world is finally admitting the truth.
The cover-up of COVID-19's origins is one of the greatest scandals in the history of the world. Millions of people all over the planet have died from the China Virus.
The cost of the outbreak and the lying about its origins is incalculable, some say in excess of $50 trillion.
Now it's time to hold China—and the corrupt forces who have facilitated this colossal suppression of facts—accountable for the damage they have inflicted upon all of humanity. — The Daily Mail
Our Take: “Nice to see an Op-Ed from Trump. It echoes much of what he said in his CPAC speech in regards to China and Covid-19.
My favorite lines are, "There must now be a reckoning. The sinister censorship regimes in the United States and throughout the West must be dismantled and destroyed. This scandal is the best possible reminder of why we must have free speech."
Amen.” — Just Human
Flynn Sues DOJ, FBI For Malicious Prosecution, Wants $50 Million
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ), FBI, and others, alleging he was maliciously prosecuted. He is demanding at least $50 million in compensation.
“Defendant maliciously investigated and prosecuted General Flynn by initiating and continuing a baseless counterintelligence investigation and by filing a criminal information lacking probable cause,” says the suit, filed on March 3 with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida (pdf).
The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) under the Obama administration was investigated by the FBI starting in August 2016 for supposed ties to Russia. In 2017, he was charged with lying to the FBI during an interview earlier that year.
The suit alleges that the FBI, and later prosecutors from the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, investigated and prosecuted him for political reasons, considering him a threat. — The Epoch Times
Our Take: “Now that it the truth about the Russiagate has been exposed, namely that the basis for using FISA powers and other official investigative bodies to pursue Flynn, had no basis in fact or process, damages can be pursued.
The $50 million damages are likely not going to have any major impact on the intelligence community—the very community Flynn pledged to reform.
Nevertheless, if the court sides with Flynn, and in doing so, effectively validates the claims he has made against the intelligence apparatus, this in and of itself would be a major victory.
From here, the 5th Gen war against the DS and globalists can proceed to convince the people of just how badly things have fallen into corruption. No doubt, the powers that be have already anticipated this eventuality and are prepared to deal with the PR. Winning this case won't defeat the DS. It is just a step in the right direction.
Similarly, losing this case won't cripple the forces working to take down the DS. That said, if the case doesn't end with a favorable result for Flynn, this would itself be yet another display of corruption on the part of the DS. It would act to cause disillusionment in the citizenry—a necessary eventuality if we are to see droves of citizens stop supporting and using the DS system.” — Justin Deschamps
Fauci 'Prompted' Scientists To Fabricate 'Proximal Origins' Paper Ruling Out Lab-Leak: House GOP
Dr. Anthony Fauci - who offshored banned gain-of-function research to make bat coronaviruses more transmissible to humans - has been accused by Congressional investigators of having 'prompted' the fabrication of a paper by a cadre of scientists aimed at disproving the Covid-19 lab-leak theory.
On February 1, 2020, Fauci and his boss, NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins, and at least eleven other scientists participated in a conference call during which several of them warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China - may have been intentionally genetically manipulated.
Three days after the call, four participants from the call (Scripps Research virologist Kristian Andersen, University of Sydney virologist Edward Holmes, Tulane School of Medicine virologist Robert Garry, University of Edinburgh virologist Andrew Rambaut and Columbia University virologist Ian Lipkin) seemingly discarded their concerns over a lab-leak, and drafted "The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2," which they sent to Fauci and Collins.
Also heavily involved (yet not credited) was Dr. Jeremy Farrar, the current Chief Scientist at the World Health Organization.
As a related aside - the Washington Examiner revealed last week that two authors of "Proximal Origin" who initially expressed concerns over a lab-leak and then changed their tune (Anderson and Garry), received millions in NIH grants under Fauci.
Now, according to the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, Fauci 'prompted' the creation of the paper — ZeroHedge
Our Take: “Will Dr. Fauci walk free, or are we finally about to see some long-awaited justice served?
Remember, Fauci is just one of many. The unspoken "pandemic industrial complex" employs legions of individuals from many different industries and nations; not all of them aware of what they were participating in.
Of course, Fauci certainly played an important role, as did Bill Gates, Tedros Ghebreyesus, Peter Daszak, Shi Zhengli, Rochelle Walensky, Albert Bourla, and many, many others. Going after Fauci is a fine place to start, so long as he doesn't become the sacrificial lamb to placate the masses while the monster he helped to create continues on, unabated.
We saw last week that Biden is eyeballing these "pandemic accords", which would give the WHO the ability to circumvent the constitution in the name of "global health". Now is the perfect time for the sleepy masses to receive a heroic dose of truth.
While we're at it, why doesn't the House Oversight Committee look into the pushing of toxic Remdesivir while downplaying the efficacy of proven, cheap drugs like Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin?
If Fauci is going to be a fall guy, I hope the patriots in Congress use his fall to bring forward as much truth as possible to vindicate those who put their reputations on the line by recommending cheap and effective alternatives.” — Ryan DeLarme
Trump seeks to block Pence’s grand jury testimony in 2020 election interference probe
Former President Donald Trump has asked a federal court to block former Vice President Mike Pence from speaking to a grand jury about certain matters covered by executive privilege as part of the criminal investigation into efforts to overturn Trump’s 2020 election loss, sources familiar with the move told CNN.
The request, in a new filing submitted secretly in a sealed proceeding on Friday, comes after the Trump team had already indicated to special counsel Jack Smith, who is overseeing the Justice Department’s criminal investigations into Trump, that the former president intended to assert privilege over Pence’s testimony.
The DOJ had previously asked a judge to compel Pence’s appearance before the grand jury, CNN reported last week.
It is unclear how long it will take for the sealed proceedings to unfold, but it’s possible that the district court resolves the dispute, or that it will be appealed to a federal appeals court and perhaps, eventually, to the US Supreme Court. — CNN
Our Take: “A very interesting, and unprecedented, court battle is being set up here.
Trump and Pence are both working to block this, and Pence, arguing that his role that day as President of the Senate is protected by the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause, has already said he is willing to take it all the way to the Supreme Court.
I would not be surprised if it makes it there.” — Just Human
Resumes including ‘they/them’ pronouns are more likely to be overlooked, new report finds
Inclusivity shouldn’t just be present in the workplace — it should be practiced during the hiring process as well. But unfortunately, nonbinary job seekers are facing clear biases during their job search.
According to a new report from Business.com, a business resource platform, over 80% of nonbinary people believe that identifying as nonbinary would hurt their job search. Similarly, 51% believe their gender identity has affected their workplace experience “very or somewhat negatively.”
Ryan McGonagill, director of industry research at Business.com and author of the report, says these statistics show just how much work there is to do around diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in the workplace. — NBC News
Our Take: “Stereotypes exist for a reason. They can help us make quick assessments about a person's character using associative phenomenon. Of course, resting our conclusions on this quick assessment can lead to bigotry and prejudice.
In this case, the characterological stability of a job applicant can be quickly assessed (albeit imperfectly) by taking stock of whether that job applicant placed their preferred pronouns on their resume.
"Her/She" might indicate someone who is more interested in their image as a virtue signaling acolyte of the woke agenda—someone who's willing to throw condiments in protest at a customer for wearing a MAGA hat instead of politely taking their order.
The reason this is often associated with indications of being a poor employee is that the same people who tend to be militant with their preferred pronouns also tend to be fragile, renegade types, who are far less dedicated to duty of their job. It indicates a type of selfish narcissism and selfishness.
This is itself indicative of a decline in the most essential skill a citizen needs to bring to bear as a member of a community or nation; that skill is dedication to duty. Civilization is a collective of people seeking to improve their quality of life by way of willingly accepting certain duties and obligations. In exchange, citizens have more security and freedom with their lives during their off time.
While compassion for the victims of cultural warfare tactics is warranted, compassion mustn't come at the cost of society as a whole. The rewards of modern life are not an entitlement; they are the collective product of the labor of duty executing men and women. If a society allows the young to lay claim to rewards they never earned, then this toxifies the culture of excellence, replacing it with an entitlement to mediocrity.
The spoiled brat children of today, who, like the lost boys, never truly grew up, will drag the entire ship of civilization down into the murky depths if the duty-cognizant indulges them. A beast will not be satisfied with just a pound of flesh. In most cases, the beast must be tamed or the village will lose everything to the monster of chaos.” — Justin Deschamps

The 'virus' did not come from Wuhan. FBI gave half-truth to keep people sleeping. The virus came from Ukraine, for those who are able to see. This is well known propaganda strategy.
The main theme of those articles seems to be corruption. Corruption so deep as to not be believable. What makes anyone think that every Senator, Congressman, Justice,...Every Single Member of "our" government isn't corrupted? Every General. Every Admiral. They have all been in on it. Hell, even almost every single American too. Whether they knew it or not. You all know something isn't right. What it is though, who can say? I can. I know what happened. I know when it happened. I know how it happened,and who is responsible. It's your fault. It's my fault. We have forgotten who we are. We have forgotten what we are. If America truly is the hope for freedom in this world,don't you think Americans should figure this out? While there is still something left of us? If anyone who see this cares about any of it, I would invite you to go here to begin the re-discovery of us. TheAmericanStatesAssembly.net What you will find if you do,may seem a little crazy. What you will find may make you angry. It's ok if it does,because that is the correct response. Go there. Learn the information. Then do something to save yourselves. Maybe by doing so,we will save each other. No one else can. No one else will. It's up to us. All of us.
