Madeleine Hubbard contributor to Just the News reports Senator Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) opens investigation into the cell phone tracking of Americans by the CDC : In a letter to CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on Thursday, Johnson wrote, “It remains unclear why the CDC tracked millions of Americans during the pandemic and whether it continues to do so. In response to COVID-19, the CDC should have been prioritizing the development of treatments, effective testing, and vaccine safety rather than tracking Americans’ daily lives.”
Michael Waller contributor to The Federalist: So DHS re-defined disinformation, sanitized the term of its KGB roots, and expanded the definition by removing the foreign element and applying the label to First Amendment-protected political discourse. DHS then officially adopted the KGB word as its own to create a political board for “governance” of disinformation — whatever that is — to guide agencies to monitor American citizens’ free speech.
Jordon Boyd staff write at The Federalist: Democrats tried to impeach former President Donald Trump for “inciting a riot” on Jan. 6, 2021. They accused him of egging on his supporters even though he called for peace in a video that was quickly censored by Big Tech. When it comes to Biden and the leftists-endorsed violence over the Dobbs decision, however, many of those same Democrats refuse to hold the president accountable and have joined in the battle cries for destruction themselves.

War Room: Epshteyn and Bannon on the Little Known Coup Plot to Subvert the Trump Administration
Steve Bannon and Boris Epshteyn talk about the treasonous plot of Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Gen. Mark Milley to undermine President Donald Trump as commander in chief. Esper appeared on “60 Minutes” last night and admitted the confessions in his new book that he was not prepared to follow the orders of the president. Bannon says Esper and Milley will face charges when Trump is back in the White House.

Ascik; Eight Reasons to Overturn Roe v. Wade
With the widespread public furor about whether the Supreme Court will overturn its more-than-landmark 1973 abortion decision in Roe v. Wade, it is necessary to recognize that the Supreme Court’s abortion decisions, in their content and in their judicial methods, are without precedent in American jurisprudential, political, social, cultural, and moral history. For last 48 years—that is, 20 percent of our history—no other issue, public or private, has divided and polarized the country and the Court as its decision in Roe v. Wade. […] There are at least eight reasons to overturn Roe v. Wade. First, there is the sharpest dichotomy, both in the facts and in the law, between what the Supreme Court thinks abortion is and what the state governments think. There is no comparable example in American jurisprudence. In Roe, Justice Harry Blackmun wrote for the seven justices in the majority, five of whom had been appointed by Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon, that he did not know when human life begins. (He also did not know where in the Constitution the abortion right lay; see below). After purporting to survey legal and medical history back to the ancient Greeks and then forward to the present, he concluded that it was not necessary to resolve that “difficult question.” Later in the opinion, he spoke of an invention of his, the “potentiality of human life.” In the sharpest possible contrast, every state attempt since Roe to limit abortion has been based on the knowledge and assumption that the beginning of life was and is known. Blackmun said that abortion is about the different . . . […] Second, not only does the Supreme Court regularly overturn prior precedents, it has established rules for doing so. Responding to the Supreme Court’s temporary decision in September about the new Texas abortion law enacted this year, President Biden emphasized that Roe has been “precedent for nearly half a century.” At the same time, Speaker Pelosi said . . . Third, . . .
Sundance: CNN Abortion Poll Backfires, Ultimately No Opinions Moved by SCOTUS Leak
The results from the poll show despite about a 50/50 split in response to the question about have you heard of the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v Wade, there was almost no statistical change in voter opinion from prior polling. More depressingly for the leftists in media, when it comes to enthusiasm about voting in the mid-terms because of this issue, the enthusiastic crowd is the pro-life happy people. The registered voters who would be grumpy or angry was 20%. The registered voters who would be happy or joyful was 38%. Whoops. But wait, it gets better….

Arama: Bill Maher Blows up Some of the Dem Lies About the SCOTUS Draft Opinion
Bill Maher took on abortion during the panel discussion on his “Real Time” show on Friday night, and, while he is pro-choice, he blew up a lot of the narrative being pushed by the left in the wake of the leak of the SCOTUS draft opinion — that somehow the opinion would make abortion go away and that the decision, if it held, could lead to infringements on rights such as interracial marriage. Joe Biden even lied and claimed that the draft opinion could lead to LGBTQ kids being segregated from other kids in the classroom. Maher brought a little sanity back into the discussion, noting that in some other places in Europe that things were more restrictive when it comes to abortion.

Revolver.news: After Roe, Here Are Seven More Precedents the Post-Trump Supreme Court Should Smash
But Roe isn’t the only terrible ruling the Court has delivered. There are many more, and they are integral to sustaining the current rotten regime. If Roe is on its way out, here are seven more rulings that President Trump’s Supreme Court should jettison next. Regents of the University of California v. Bakke
The first glaring constitutional error that the Court has a chance to fix is this case from 1978. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution explicitly bars any state from denying a resident the “equal protection of the laws,” while Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act explicitly prohibits racial discrimination for programs and entities receiving federal funds (which includes almost all schools in the country). So, when the University of California rejected former Marine Allan Bakke’s application to medical school, while admitting far-less-qualified minorities under a racial quota system, he sued. Inexcusably, the Court ignored both the 14th Amendment and the text of the Civil Rights Act. While the Court struck down . . . […] United Steelworkers v. Weber What Bakke did for universities, Weber did for the private sector. Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act very explicitly bans discrimination based on race or sex at any employer or labor union with more than fifteen employees. Laboratory assistant Brian Weber sued when he was denied admission to a training program that gave equal slots to whites and blacks, despite whites being far more numerous at the company. Lower courts correctly ruled that this racial discrimination was illegal, but the Supreme Court reversed, and preposterously found that, when the Civil Rights Act banned racial discrimination, it actually allowed it. The Court justified this naked contradiction on the grounds that . . . […] Griggs vs. Duke Power Company This decision may be the single most important precedent that must be overturned in America. Everything tyrannical about modern wokeness flows from this 1971 ruling and the calamitous legal doctrine it created: Disparate impact. Prior to Griggs, legislation barring racial and other types of discrimination was presumed to cover deliberate discrimination. If a company refused to hire black applicants, that was racial discrimination, but if it simply required a high school diploma, or a college degree, or passing a job skills test, that was not. Griggs threw all that out the window. Duke Power Company . . . Kelo vs. City of New London . . . Wickard v. Filburn. . . United States v. Wong Kim Ark . . . Green v.

Kelly: Judge Amit Mehta’s Kangaroo Court
Judge Amit Mehta sounded perturbed, to say the least.
The D.C. District Court judge handling numerous January 6 legal matters, including the Justice Department’s high-profile prosecution of the Oath Keepers, flatly dismissed concerns by defense attorneys that the first trial in the case will coincide with public hearings held by the January 6 Select Committee later this year. “Even if Congress is on the steps of the courthouse reading the [final] report, I am not moving the September trial,” Mehta warned during a status hearing last week for nine Oath Keepers accused of seditious conspiracy among other charges. Mehta’s outburst was telling. In any other jurisdiction in the country, a political stunt by a handful of partisan lawmakers would be widely criticized as an unfair hurdle for defendants facing trial on the same issue at the same time—especially for an exceedingly rare crime, akin to treason, for which the government is seeking life in prison. Further, any frustration would be directed at the politicians interfering in such a serious prosecution, not at defense attorneys protecting the best interest of their clients.
BIDEN’S BIG BROTHER DHS
Revolver Exposes How the Ministry of Truth Plans to Hide Immigration Failures and Label Open-Border Critics “Disinfo Agents”
The Biden Administration’s new “Disinformation Governance Board” has mostly attracted attention for the ridiculous Harry Potter/Mary Poppins superfan chosen to lead it. The janky lady in question is one Nina Jankowicz. But amid all the justified outrage over the disinfo board’s existence, few people have drawn attention to its unusual issue portfolio. In short, the Disinformation Governance Board’s chief purpose isn’t simply to suppress unwanted ideas in America, but specifically to assist in a crucial development: The transformation of DHS from the department that guards America’s borders into the department keeping them pried open at all costs. Initial reporting about the “standing up” of the disinfo board suggested that it is being created with two subjects in mind. The first, no surprise, is Russia, the Fatherland of Lies and permanent bogeyman of the Beltway class. But the other, more particular focus of the board is the rather oddly termed “irregular migration”: . . .
Waller: The Biden Administration’s ‘Disinformation’ Board Is A Tool Straight From Soviet Russia’s KGB
KGB term of tradecraft is now part of U.S. Department of Homeland Security governance. The new Biden administration “Disinformation Governance Board,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told CNN, is a “small working group” to “address threats, the connectivity between threats and acts of violence” without “infringing on free speech” and while “protecting civil rights and civil liberties, the right to privacy.” The board has no “operational authority” of its own, Mayorkas said. Mayorkas denied that the board will cause American citizens to be monitored, saying, “we, the Department of Homeland Security, don’t monitor American citizens.” That might be true. But Mayorkas went on to say the Disinformation Governance Board is mandated to provide “best practices and communicate those best practices to the operators” in agencies that do have “operational authority.” Never before has “disinformation governance” been part of the official U.S. government terminology for defending the internal security of the country.

FAUCI: CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY?
Malone, MD MS: Preventable Deaths and D3.
We had an inexpensive life-saving solution both before and during the pandemic… The inconvenient truth is that even at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a very simple, inexpensive and effective treatment was available that could have saved the majority of lives lost (1-3). All that the WHO and public health bureaucracy had to do was to recommend and support people taking sufficient Vitamin D3. This failure to act traces back to the unscientific bias and pro-vaccine obsession of Dr. Anthony Fauci. And once again the legacy media, while being paid by the US government and the pharmaceutical industry to promote vaccination, acted by censoring, defaming and suppressing the ability of physicians to inform people of scientific truth. The disease you suffered, the loss of live among your family and friends, could have been greatly reduced by simply getting enough Vitamin D3. This is another example of what happens when unelected bureaucrats are allowed to control free speech. Crimes against humanity.

Piper: Under political pressure, FDA pledges to lower COVID vaccine standards for kids under 5
The FDA’s vaccines chief said the agency wouldn’t reject a COVID-19 vaccine for children under 5 “solely” because its efficacy against symptomatic infection was lower than 50%, according to the chair of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis. The office of Democratic Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina said Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, made the pledge in a Friday staff briefing. The 50% efficacy threshold is in a June 2020 FDA guidance document. […] It’s the second time in two weeks the South Carolina Democrat has publicly pressured the agency to quickly grant emergency use authorization (EUA) for this age group, despite reservations about the quality of evidence both internally and from outside experts.

Some schools have also chosen to continue advocacy throughout the week and hold demonstrations on Monday and Thursday.
Meyrat: As A Teacher Who Sees Rampant Tech Addiction Up Close, I’m Sending My Kids To Screen-Free Schools
Many of today’s children are ignorant, sad, and set up for failure. They lack the knowledge and skills to perform basic tasks. They are lonely and suffer from depression and anxiety. Also, as Mark Bauerlein explains in his book “The Dumbest Generation Grows Up,” they are incredibly immature.
The reasons for this are not a mystery. One top answer is actually incredibly simple: screens. Instead of learning about their world and participating in it, the majority of young people are glued to their devices, playing video games, scrolling through social media, and streaming videos.
This past year, American teens and pre-teens spent an average of nine hours per day in front of a screen. That means they spend almost twice as much waking life looking at illuminated pixels than they do at physical objects and people. […] These days, nearly all the students have smartphones and use them obsessively. The damage done is unmistakable: they have lost the ability to focus; they can’t remember anything (except to check their smartphone every other second); they lack imagination and depend heavily on sound and visuals, and they are bored by everything.
GOVERNMENT HAS SEIZIED CONTROL OF HEALTHCARE
Murawski: Medicine’s Tricky Operation: Grafting ‘Systemic Racism’ Onto Hard Science
A few years ago, concepts such as “white supremacy,” “systemic racism,” and “structural intersectionality” were not the standard fare of prestigious medical journals. But a February special issue of Health Affairs, the Washington, D.C.-based peer-reviewed journal, analyzes racial health disparities not through biology, behavior, or culture, but through the lens of “whiteness,” along with concepts such as power, systems of oppression, state-sanctioned violence, and critical race praxis—a sampling of terms that appear in the issue. The Health Affairs special issue reflects the effort of “antiracist” scholars to transform concepts still considered speculative and controversial—and some say unprovable—into scientific fact. It is being advanced by other high-profile publications as well, including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and Scientific American, which last year published articles entitled “Modern Mathematics Confronts Its White, Patriarchal Past” and “Denial of Evolution Is a Form of White Supremacy.” But this scientific aspiration faces major challenges. Science demands verification, testability, and replicability, whereas race is a social construct that can be difficult to separate from factors like class or culture, and explaining the data often remains dependent on academic theories about systemic racism. The articles in Health Affairs indicate that elevating the concept of systemic racism from moral certitude to scientific fact will require developing new tools and methods.

Newsmax: Dems Want to Boost Biden Ukraine Aid to $40B, Agree to Break Off Stalled COVID Package
Congressional Democrats are preparing a plan that would boost President Joe Biden’s requested $33 billion Ukraine aid package to nearly $40 billion, and a House vote is possible as soon as Tuesday, two people familiar with lawmakers’ thinking said. In a retreat, Biden conceded that the package should not contain any of the additional billions he’s requested to combat COVID-19. Republicans, whose backing would be crucial to pushing legislation through the evenly divided Senate, have opposed adding that money to the Ukraine aid. “We cannot afford delay in this vital war effort,” Biden said in a written statement. “Hence, I am prepared to accept that these two measures move separately, so that the Ukrainian aid bill can get to my desk right away.”

The regiment has been quietly under fire for years from the U.S. government for having alleged neo-Nazi ties. The House voted in 2018 to ban funding of “arms, training, or other assistance” to the Azov Regiment. Forty House Democrats requested in 2019 for the Azov Regiment to be designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department, but were not successful in doing so. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his justification for waging war in Ukraine on Feb. 24, seemingly pointed to the group when he said one of Russia’s goals was to “denazify” Ukraine. Asking questions about the regiment’s insignia, rhetoric and activities, and how they tie into “neo-Nazi” allegations, is seemingly taboo and unspeakable at all costs.

Pollak: Democrats’ Bill to Codify ‘Roe’ and Abortion Omits the Word ‘Woman’
Democrats are defending Roe v. Wade as the foundation of women’s rights, but their bill to codify Roe into law lacks the word “woman,” and only mentions the word “women” in the title. The move to codify Roe began as an attempt to fulfill a campaign promise by President Joe Biden, who said that he would urge Congress to pass a law to make abortion legal nationwide in the event that a conservative Supreme Court struck down the controversial 1973 precedent that granted a “right” to abortion. That pledge has become more urgent since last week, when a majority opinion by Justice Samuel Alito striking down Roe in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case was leaked to the media, triggering alarm among Democrats. But the 2021 bill to codify Roe, the Women’s Health Protection Act, did far more than that. It also included radical provisions on gender, including the proclamation . . .
Nester: House Republicans Slam Biden Administration’s ‘Disturbing Attack’ on Charter Schools
Rep. Chris Jacobs (R., N.Y.) and 21 other members of Congress last week in a letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to protest the administration’s “burdensome” proposed rules. The proposed rules would cut federal funding to for-profit charter schools across the board and require new charter schools to prove their necessity by demonstrating “over-enrollment” in nearby public schools. […] “Charter schools provide a free, public education to families who choose to enroll in these schools,” the representatives said in their letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. “Limiting the growth of these institutions will harm students seeking learning options beyond the traditional public school system, which is beholden to teachers’ unions rather than to parents and students.” Democrats have long opposed charter schools, which they claim siphon resources from public schools. President Joe Biden promised to ban federal funding for for-profit charter schools while campaigning for office.
Turley: From Court Packing to Leaking to Doxing: White House Yields to a National Rage Addiction
Nearly 70 years ago, a little-known lawyer named Joseph Welch famously confronted Sen. Joseph McCarthy (D-Wis.) in defense of a young man hounded over alleged un-American views. Welch told McCarthy that “I think I have never really gauged … your recklessness” before asking: “Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” It was a defining moment in American politics as Welch called out a politician who had abandoned any semblance of principle in the pursuit of political advantage. This week, the same scene played out in the White House with one striking difference: This was no Joseph Welch to be found. After someone in the Supreme Court leaked a draft opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a virtual flash-mob formed around the court and its members demanding retributive justice. This included renewed calls for court “packing,” as well as the potential targeting of individual justices at their homes. Like the leaking of the opinion itself, the doxing of justices and their families is being treated as fair game in our age of rage.

HOW TO PREVENT THE NEXT PANDEMIC by Bill Gates
(H/T AA) Eugyppius: We Must Find a Way to Prevent Bill Gates from Preventing the Next Pandemic
For days now, I’ve been fighting my way through Bill Gates’s disturbing new book on How to Prevent the Next Pandemic, and I’ve found myself wondering about one question above all: How are we to explain Gates, exactly? I know that for many of you he is a calculating conspiratorial goon. Pretend for a moment that he’s not, though. Imagine, for the sake of argument, that he’s every inch the obtuse, naive and self-important former software developer that he seems to be. How did he get this way, what does he even think he is doing, and what can it mean? Remember that this man has billions of dollars. A whole world of unusual vices stands open to him: He could hire a mercenary army to invade some country and proclaim himself god-emperor for life. He could retire to a tropical island with his favourite mind-altering substances and a harem of nubile young women. He could do both at once, and other things besides. Instead, he has chosen the path of moral vanity, perhaps the least interesting vice of all, founding a ponderous grantmaking foundation and pooping around the globe in manboobs and ill-fitting polo shirts, pronouncing to all and sundry on subjects he hardly understands. […] The fundamental message of How to Prevent the Next Pandemic is that we can stop future pandemic events by doing all of the things that did not stop the last pandemic event, only more, faster and harder. Gates can’t get enough of the World Health Organisation. He proposes expanding it with a 3,000-strong division of pandemic shock troops called the Global Epidemic Response and Mobilisation team. That is not a joke; he actually wants to call it GERM. He says it’ll be comprised of epidemiologists, geneticists, pharmaceutical experts, data systems people, diplomats, rapid responders, modellers, and heaven knows who else. These people will jet around the world ensuring that an identical response is propagated instantly everywhere, so we can all endure the same catastrophic mistakes at the same time.

Hogan: The Five Worst Prosecutors in America
In 1940, Attorney General Robert Jackson proclaimed, “While the prosecutor at his best is one of the most beneficent forces in our society, when he acts from malice or other base motives, he is one of the worst.” There are more than just five bad prosecutors currently in office in the United States. But the following five prosecutors have earned notoriety as the worst in America based on vital criteria—public safety, fidelity to the rule of law, personal integrity, leadership, responsible innovations, community relations, office morale, and teamwork with other players in the criminal-justice system. (The list extends beyond just five individuals because some jurisdictions have suffered under the policies of multiple prosecutors.) Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore: Elected in 2014 as Baltimore state’s attorney, Mosby was one of the first prosecutors to campaign on a platform of de-prosecution, decarceration, and denouncing the police—indeed, the entire criminal-justice system—as racist. Once in office, she delivered on her promises. The results for Baltimore have been devastating. Homicides in the city shot up to 342 in her first year in office—a 38 percent increase—and have not dropped below 300 during any year of her tenure. Mosby has attacked the police relentlessly, including her attempt to prosecute six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, which resulted in no convictions and an ethics complaint against her. She refuses to prosecute entire categories of crimes, much to the dismay of Baltimore businesses. Mosby seems to have no substantive plans for the office, instead spending her time skipping work and traveling around the country, according to an inspector general’s report. Not surprisingly, Baltimore’s population has declined by 35,000 between 2010 and 2020, as residents continue to flee the violence-plagued city.
[…] Larry Krasner, Josh Shapiro, and Bill McSwain, Philadelphia: For the past five years, Philadelphia has experienced frightening increases in violence, topping out with a new record of 562 homicides in 2021. […] Krasner shoulders the greatest responsibility. The George Soros-backed official never served as a prosecutor prior to his 2017 election, instead working as a criminal defense and civil rights lawyer, usually battling with the police. […] Kim Gardner, St. Louis: Another Soros-backed prosecutor, elected St. Louis Circuit Attorney in 2016, Kim Gardner refuses to prosecute many crimes. In 2019, she prosecuted only
Lendrum: Satanists to Make Legal Argument in Favor of Abortion as a Religious Ritual
The Satanic Temple of the United States (TST) plans to file legal challenges against any states that restrict or ban abortions, claiming that such procedures constitute religious rituals for its adherents. […] To this end, the Satanists plan to file their lawsuits under the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), a 1993 law that made it illegal for state governments to interfere in religious practices without first demonstrating a “compelling interest” in doing so. TST claims that under this law, “unfettered access” to the aforementioned abortion drugs is necessary to ensure that its followers can perform ritualistic abortions without government interference.
Byrne: Second-hand fentanyl fumes threaten Seattle bus drivers
The Emerald City is going up in smoke, again. Two years after Seattle officials let the city burn during BLM protests, bus drivers say they’re facing a frightful new danger: second-hand fentanyl fumes spread by addicts brazenly smoking the deadly synthetic drug on public transportation. “The signs are, they put their head down, and start watching for the flame,” Kings County Metro bus driver Erik Christensen told KIRO 7 News. “After they inhale or ingest, they can comfortably pass out. And no one’s going to stop them.” Seattle, like New York City, rarely arrests or prosecutes people in possession of small amounts of hard drugs, even if they’re using them in public. Smoking instead of injecting fentanyl meanwhile is gaining in popularity. The result is bad news for public transportation, drivers say.

(United Kingdom) Van Maren: ‘Transgender’ males are now pushing for uterus transplants
For several years now, transgender activists have been loudly declaring that biology itself is “transphobic.” A prominent example of why Nature is bigoted is the fact that men calling themselves “transgender women” cannot get pregnant, because, despite their delusions, they do not possess the necessary equipment to conceive, carry, and birth a child. The fact that medical experts have not yet solved this problem is, according to trans activists, more evidence of how the healthcare system is also “transphobic.” Back in 2017 already, U.K. doctors with the National Health Service (NHS) were advocating more research into the possibility that wombs could be implanted into biological men, with one top doctor speculating that the medical field might only be a decade away from being able to pull this off. NHS experts added that when (or if) this became possible, biological men who desire to become female should be able to get a womb at the taxpayer’s expense. Those medical ethicists and feminists who pointed out that this was both insane and would divert badly-needed medical resources from research into diseases like cancer were told to shut up.
