    “Joe Biden Reportedly Having Trouble Keeping Up with Everyone Else at G-7 Summit”

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2021/06/11/joe-biden-reportedly-having-trouble-keeping-up-with-everyone-else-at-g7-summit-n2590823

    “Joe Biden is meeting with members of the G-7 right now. It’s his first presidential trip abroad. It will be described as a turning point in US-world relations. Trump lost so America is good again or something. Oh, and we’re also leading, except in the Middle East where Biden was AWOL. I mean, NBC News’ story on it pretty much sums up how liberal America will view this trip:

    The first foreign trip of Joe Biden’s presidency will be far more than a few smiling photo ops and well-manicured communiqués.

    Many see his attendance at the Group of Seven summit and then the NATO summit over the next week as a one-shot chance: not just to help fix relations with Washington’s bruised allies, but also to reassert the faltering influence of the U.S. and the West itself.

    The visit will also be shadowed by questions about whether Biden, for all his trans-Atlantic experience, is actually more focused on the rising competitor in Beijing than in old Cold War allies across the pond.

    “After four tumultuous years of Trump, the Europeans have now got the U.S. leadership they always dreamed of,” said Fabrice Pothier, NATO’s former head of policy planning. “Except now the story has moved on.”

    “A.U.D.I.T. of Elections: Hot and Getting Hotter!”

    “A.U.D.I.T.: About Undermining Democrat-Implemented Theft (of elections)

    It’s not just Arizona and Georgia that are shining klieg lights on “election irregularities”! Over the past week, a total of 11 states have made election news. In addition, there are national newsmakers (including the Democrat-media complex dragging out the “big guns” to try to squelch any talk of election forensic audits). But before we get started with the summary of recent reports, this is a poignant reminder that the logic of the Hologram’s victory escapes most rational people. Certainly, no one in the Democrat-media complex has taken a stab at explaining this chart (courtesy of Tierney Real News):”

    “And Rasmussen Reports (one of the most accurate pollsters) reports that 51% of likely voters “believe that cheating impacted the 2020 election results” (up 4 percentage points from November!).”

  4. The Chinese cover-up of the China virus continues.

    https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2021/06/12/chinas-aggressive-lack-of-transparency-on-virus-origin-continues-n396219

    “But as the Associated Press learned this week, Chinese authorities are blocking nearly all of their efforts and clamping down on what research information can or can’t be shared with the public.

    The area is of intense scientific interest because it may hold clues to the origins of the coronavirus that has killed more than 1.7 million people worldwide. Yet for scientists and journalists, it has become a black hole of no information because of political sensitivity and secrecy.

    A bat research team visiting recently managed to take samples but had them confiscated, two people familiar with the matter said. Specialists in coronaviruses have been ordered not to speak to the press. And a team of Associated Press journalists was tailed by plainclothes police in multiple cars who blocked access to roads and sites in late November.

    So the research team actually made it into the cave and collected the samples, but upon exiting, Chinese officials confiscated them. The police, wearing no uniforms and driving unmarked cars, follow them around every time they leave their hotels. Anyone who actually does manage to get any scientific research done is being forced to coordinate their work with the Chinese military, and a panel set up by direct orders from Xi Jinping reviews all of their work before it is approved for publication.

    These are the researchers who are specifically looking at bats in the wild. Wouldn’t you think that the Chinese government would be thrilled to have them publish their work? After all, China is desperate to stop anyone from suggesting that the virus broke out from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and blame the pandemic either on bats or the United States, right? Unless, of course, that research turns out to once again show that there’s no match between the virus in the bats and the human version… again. (They have yet to find one example supporting the wet market theory.)

    It’s gotten bad enough that even the World Health Organization is now admitting they were stonewalled. And considering how much the WHO and the UN were doing backflips to shift the blame previously, the situation must be growing rather dire.

    But behind the scenes, it was a much different story, one of significant delays by China and considerable frustration among WHO officials over not getting the information they needed to fight the spread of the deadly virus, The Associated Press has found.

    Despite the plaudits, China in fact sat on releasing the genetic map, or genome, of the virus for more than a week after three different government labs had fully decoded the information. Tight controls on information and competition within the Chinese public health system were to blame, according to dozens of interviews and internal documents.

    That’s a different tone than both the media and the WHO took not all that long ago. As you may recall, back in January and February, the WHO was singing the praises of the Chinese government for its “cooperation and transparency” during the early stages of the investigation. The first report they released (after barely two weeks of work during which they were given no access to the lab) rated the likelihood of various, competing theories as to the virus’ origin. The report claimed that bats or pangolins were “most likely” to have been the root cause, while a leak from a laboratory was “extremely unlikely.”

    The media ate that up with a spoon and began accusing anyone who suggested the lab origin theory of “spreading medical misinformation.”

    “‘Simply wrong’ — Rank hypocrisy in Biden’s press criticisms of Trump”

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jun/11/rank-hypocrisy-bidens-press-criticisms-trump/

    “President Biden uttered “it’s simply, simply wrong” when news arrived that the Trump Justice Department had spied on reporters’ phone records and emails to try to catch leakers.

    Mr. Biden’s verdict sounded great for the First Amendment in an era of left-wing muzzling.

    You would never guess that the not-so-long-ago Obama-Biden administration conducted some of the most mindboggling spying on journalists in modern U.S. history.

    How does the Kremlin or Tehran or Beijing top this? The last Democratic administration bugged the Washington bureau of the nation’s leading wire service, the Associated Press.

    The AP operation was part of a larger press assault. The Obama-Biden team displayed little hesitancy in targeting journalists not only to find sources, but to make examples for any sources in waiting.

    In 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder approved the extensive intrusion into the AP’s daily reporter-source communications. He wanted to know who tipped off the wire service to a CIA operation that stopped an al Qaeda airplane bomb plot hatched in Yemen.

    Obama-Biden was not content with just spying on the AP’s D.C. bureau. The feds harvested a large number of records — including reporters’ home and cell phone calls –– from AP’s Hartford and New York offices and its bureau in the House of Representatives.

    It was not mob-style wiretapping, with agents in headsets in a disguised van. Instead, the FBI secretly collected a larger number of digits –– who called whom –– revealing just about everyone AP’s reporters routinely contacted.

    “This sort of activity really amounts to massive government monitoring of the actions of the press, and it really puts a dagger at the heart of AP’s newsgathering activities,” AP’s lawyer David Schultz, told NPR.

    There were no subpoenas to AP. No warnings. Just raw data collection. (Imagine what Adam Schiff would do if Trump…).

    So offended was Gary B. Pruitt, AP’s president and chief executive, that he wrote directly to Mr. Holder in May 2013.

    “There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of the Associated Press and its reporters,” Mr. Pruitt wrote. “These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know.”

    He said Mr. Holder violated the department’s own regulations to make subpoenas on a news reporter’s call records as narrow as possible.

    That same month the Obama-Biden team outdid itself. Not content with bugging bureaus, they decided to stalk a reporter, James Rosen, then of Fox News.

    An FBI May 2010 affidavit revealed the Justice Department viewed the diplomatic reporter as a criminal — a “co-conspirator” — for reporting classified information on a North Korean nuclear test.”

    “Allegations against Bo Schembechler are devastating; so are the victims’ stories”

    https://www.freep.com/story/sports/columnists/mitch-albom/2021/06/10/mitch-albom-bo-schembechler-allegations-sexual-abuse-victims-michigan-football-robert-anderson/7643889002/

    “They say there are three truths in any accusation: the accuser’s, the accused’s, and the actual truth. Two of those were not accessible Thursday, and they never will be.

    But one truth was heard.

    And it was devastating.

    Three men, now in their 50s and 60s, two of them former Michigan football players, the other the son of its most famous coach, sat behind a podium table in a hotel conference room, flanked by lawyers, and recounted, in painful detail, how their young bodies were sexually abused by a former team doctor named Robert Anderson.

    “He digitally raped me”…”He caressed my testicles while asking me questions about my sex life”…”They called him Dr. Anal…”

    The excruciating details went on. They spoke of being too scared to speak up. Too young to know how to react. Tears formed and words choked as they related multiple accounts of the most brutal betrayal between a doctor and patient.

    “He fondled my genitals”…”He molested and violated me”…”I felt humiliated and confused.”

    Anderson’s alleged behavior was cringing to hear. But to the accusers, it was only one breach of trust. The other, which may have hurt them more, was allegedly that of the coach, Bo Schembechler.

    “Bo knew,” said Daniel Kwiatkowski, a former lineman in the 1970s.

    “Bo knew everything,” said Gilvanni Johnson, a former wide receiver in the ’80s.

    “I understand the reverence people have for my father,” said Matt Schembechler, Bo’s son, “but I know the truth.”

    That truth, as told by these three men, was a portrait of ruinous neglect. Bo was accused of dismissing reports of Anderson’s abuse with comments like “toughen up.” Matt Schembechler claimed he was first abused by Anderson in 1969 when Matt was just 10 years old, and when he told his father, “it didn’t go well.” He claimed Bo screamed at him and hit him.

    “That was the beginning of the end of (our) relationship. … I hoped my father would protect me, but he didn’t.”

    ———-

    How sad, that a so called man would react that way when told by his son he’d been molested. A total failure as a man and father. All to keep his job and reputation. Sad.

    “Defector Provides Evidence That the Chinese Military Orchestrated the Creation of COVID-19 and Lab Leak”

    https://redstate.com/jenvanlaar/2021/06/11/exclusive-defector-provides-evidence-that-the-chinese-military-orchestrated-the-creation-of-covid-19-and-lab-leak-n395384

    “One week ago we reported that a man believed to be the highest-ranking Chinese defector ever was working with the Defense Intelligence Agency and that he had direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs. We also reported that the defector provided an extensive, technically detailed debrief to US officials, that the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) was able to corroborate very technical details of the information provided, and that in DIA’s assessment, the information provided by the defector is legitimate.

    RedState has now learned some details of the information provided by the defector, including that he provided data proving that SARS-CoV-2 was manmade and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in addition to evidence confirming that the People’s Liberation Army managed the Wuhan program (and others), as Chinese virologist Yan Li-Meng told the FBI last year.

    Technical details provided by the defector, RedState is told, were given to scientists (who were not told how that information was given to the government) who then re-analyzed data from published sources in conjunction with the new data and concluded that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was engineered. And, the defector was able to confirm numerous non-public details Yan provided the US government.

    Pause for a moment and consider this. Our government now has additional evidence that a virus that killed 600,000 Americans, sickened millions more, nearly destroyed our economy, and inflicted untold collateral damage, was a bioweapon created by the Chinese military and deliberately released.

    I say “additional” evidence because the FBI has had some of this evidence for more than a year and the person who brought it forward has only been subjected to a thorough smear campaign for her efforts – which is highly relevant when attempting to understand the newest defector’s actions.

    As reported in my original story about the defector, sources told RedState that the FBI, the State Department, and CIA were intentionally kept in the dark about the fact that the defector was working with the DIA. Many in the intelligence community were highly skeptical of that claim for logistical reasons (i.e., China obviously knew the guy was gone as soon as he was gone, and any assets/spies within our foreign government also knew, so how could they keep his location a secret for so long?), but the fact that the FBI had a lot of this information from Yan for more than a year and nothing to investigate or validate it makes it easy to understand why this defector wanted nothing to do with the CIA or, especially, the FBI.

    Also, a separate source confirmed to RedState that several members of Congress who have been working on investigating the virus’ origin have been briefed on many of DIA’s findings, including Rep. Matt Gaetz. That explains Gaetz’s grilling of FBI Director Christopher Wray Thursday on Capitol Hill.

    Gaetz laid out the thumbnail of Yan’s story to Wray and low-key accused the FBI of being part of the coronavirus origin coverup because they did not attempt to verify the scientific or intelligence information she provided, and they did not prevent the massive effort to discredit Yan undertaken by both the Chinese government, the United States media, and “scientists” like Dr. Peter Daszak. (They may have even been part of that effort.) “

    “White Farmers Win Temporary Injunction Halting Biden Loan Forgiveness Program That Favored Non-Whites”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/06/white-farmers-win-temporary-injunction-halting-biden-loan-forgiveness-program-that-favored-non-whites/

    “The Biden administration has suffered another setback to its agenda of advancing racially disciminatory policies meant to favor non-whites.

    In a recent case, an Appeals Court Enjoins Biden’s Coronvirus Relief Favoring Non-Whites and Women. Now another discriminatory policy has been halted.

    We previously covered a lawsuit by white farmers, White Farmers Excluded From Biden Loan Forgiveness Program Sue To Stop “use of race discrimination as a tool to end ‘systemic racism’”:

    This lawsuit, and others sure to follow, could have huge implications for education as well. Present discrimination to remedy past discrimination is a foundational principle of Ibram X. Kendi’s “antiracism” philosophy that is a driving force from higher ed to K-12 activism. Court recognition that the Kendian “antiracism” approach when applied to farmers constitutes illegal racial discrimination could easily be applied to the race shaming and belittling of people based on race that has permeated so many educational institutions.

    The Complaint asserted:

    3. Plaintiffs are farmers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Ohio who have direct loans with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) or loans backed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). They are otherwise eligible for the loan-forgiveness program in ARPA, except for the color of their skin. As white farmers, Plaintiffs are ineligible for this government benefit….

    7. Defendants’ use of race discrimination as a tool to end “systemic racism,” is therefore unconstitutional and should be enjoined by this Court.”
