Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) aunt has slammed her own niece after the congresswoman blamed President Donald Trump for her grandmother’s hardship. Speaking to a Daily Mail reporter this week, the New York Democrat’s aunt said Trump is not to blame for the lack of aid residents are receiving, but instead, officials on the Caribbean island are.
“It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help,” said the aunt. “It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people.”
This comes after Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to say her grandmother had been suffering in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria in 2017. She proceeded to blame President Trump for blocking relief.
A past link to an activity described as eco-terrorism should disqualify President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management, according to a Republican senator.
Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming responded critically to nominee Tracy Stone-Manning’s role in sending a threatening letter on behalf of an environmentalist group that committed tree spiking crimes in 1989.
“Tracy Stone-Manning collaborated with eco-terrorists,” Barrasso said, according to the Daily Caller. “She worked with extreme environmental activists who spiked trees, threatening the lives and livelihoods of loggers.”
“While she was given immunity from prosecution to testify against her companions in court, her actions were disgraceful,” he said.
Over the last twelve months, social media’s expurgation of any and all information pertaining to Covid-19, not part-and-parcel to the mainstream status quo, has become ineffaceable.
Everywhere we look now, we see embedded links to the Covid-19 Information Center on any post that dares even utter the words “vaccine” or “covid”. More pervasive still, are the notices of “this content is no longer available”, having been unceremoniously expunged for allegedly violating the ministry of truth’s “community guidelines”. Being so brazen as to even brand one hundred percent authentic facts as “misinformation”.
Facebook is now permeated with warnings pinned upon post after post indicating “this information has been disputed by independent fact-checkers”.
Ahh yes, the same “independent fact-checkers” that only recently had their financial biases uncovered. Confirming the very conflicts of interest many of us had suspected in the first place, along with their counterparts in the mainstream media.
Ironically, just as a recent report has demonstrated how censorship backfires — Indicating excessive “fact-checking” actually contributed to the spread of misinformation.
Now, as the Overton window begins to shift it appears the MSM is left with egg on their face yet again.
The Biden administration quietly ended President Donald Trump’s policy that saw many Americans receive lower cost insulin and epinephrine pens on the same day he promised to purchase 500 million COVID-19 vaccines to be sent to foreign countries.
Yesterday, Biden promised world leaders at the G7 summit that the United States of America would finance the purchase of 500 million COVID-19 vaccines to be given to poor countries at almost precisely the same time the White House budget office approved Biden’s plan to slash a Trump-era program that provided low cost insulin and epinephrine pens to low income Americans.
On the ending of the Trump-era program, Fox Business reported, “The measure, signed off on under the previous administration in December, aimed to require some 340B community health centers to deliver savings to low-income patients for insulin and epinephrine in a bid to bring down unaffordable prices.” Fox Business notes that the Biden administration refused to offer a comment when asked by the cable network.
Hours earlier, Biden promised to unveil an American-led worldwide program to address COVID-19 vaccines as he prepared to leave the United States for the United Kingdom to meet with world leaders. After arriving, and only an hour before the White House budget office would make its announcement regarding insulin and epinephrine pens, the Washington Post revealed the administration’s plan to buy 500 million Pfizer vaccines, and reported that “President Biden is slated to announce the plan this week at the Group of Seven meeting in Britain, where he is expected to be joined by Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.”
This happened earlier today, with Biden appearing before the international media to make the announcement. Today we’re taking a major step that will super charge the fight against the global pandemic. “At my direction, the United states will purchase an additional half billion doses from Pfizer, Pfizer vaccine, that will donate nearly 100 low and lower middle income countries, they will be the beneficiaries. Let me say that again, the United States will purchase a half a billion doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to donate to nearly 100 nations that are in dire need in the fight against this pandemic.”
Our tongue-in-cheek references aside, Peter Daszak is turning out to be a nuclear-grade, evil dude. The Bond villain imagery of Dr. Julius No, Auric Goldfinger, or Elliot Carver is not doing him justice.
Not. At. All.
There is one name, however, which keeps coming up related to the virus, tied to the funding, research, and now, the potential ongoing cover-up of gain-of-function research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. That name is Peter Daszak.
Daszak is the President of EcoHealth Alliance, the organization which has funneled at least $600,000 to the WIV in the course of the last several years. Daszak also has conducted his own research in conjunction with Dr. Shi Zhengli of the WIV, some of which is categorically and indisputably gain-of-function. But it seems that no matter where you turn on this story, Daszak is there.
From Mr. Hounsell’s detailed articles, here is what we know:
- On April 18, 2020, just six weeks after the initial outbreak in the United States, Daszak sent an email to Dr. Anthony Fauci, thanking him for his comments dismissing the lab-leak theory.
- Daszak has been mounting counter offensives about the Wuhan virus from Day 1. Daszak was one of the authors of the World Health Organization (WHO) report: “Report of the WHO-China Joint Mission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)”. In this report, the WHO determined that the virus likely originated from a zoonotic spillover or a natural mutation. This report did the work of absolving Daszak, and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, of any liability in the release of the virus. What’s more, Daszak was an “expert” for Science Feedback, Facebook’s Fact Check for all things COVID.
- The Lancet is a weekly, peer-reviewed medical journal. In the March 7, 2020 issue, a group of scientists from around the world wrote a letter which condemned conspiracy theories about the origins of COVID-19. Daszak was not only a signatory on the letter, but four other signers were either employees of EcoHealth Alliance, or on the board of directors.
There is so much more, and Scott recaps it all here.
