    “Officials in Arizona’s largest county and Dominion Voting Systems on Monday announced their defiance of the state Senate’s latest round of subpoenas, continuing a feud that started last year.

    Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors decided in a closed session not to deliver any more election-related materials or information to the Arizona Senate, despite a judge earlier this year ruling subpoenas from the body lawful.”

  2. Three suicides in the last six months?

    Something is rotten in Denmark…

    “A Washington police officer who responded to the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol was found dead inside his home last week.

    Gunther Hashida, 43, killed himself and was found on July 29, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department told The Epoch Times.

    “We are grieving as a Department as our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Hashida’s family and friends,” the department said in an emailed statement.

    Hashida worked for the agency’s Emergency Response Team, an outfit in its Special Operations Division. He’s the third law enforcement officer who responded to the Jan. 6 incident to take his own life.”

    “Republican House Report Points to Wuhan Lab Leak in September 2019 as Coronavirus Origin”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/08/republican-house-report-points-to-wuhan-lab-leak-in-september-2019-as-coronavirus-origin/

    “We are a few short weeks away from the Biden-requested report on the origins of the coronavirus that is the pathogen at the center of today’s continuing pandemic.

    But the Republican members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee have already released their findings, and they are quite damning for the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). The committee members assert that the coronavirus first leaked from the facility in September 2019, shortly after the Chinese research facility tried to improve air safety and waste treatment systems.

    The report also cited ‘ample evidence’ that scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology – aided by U.S. experts and Chinese and U.S. government funds – were working to modify coronaviruses to infect humans and such manipulation could be hidden.

    Its authors cited a stream of open source information, including satellite imagery showing a surge in visitors to local hospitals, long before cases were reported emerging from a nearby market.

    And it reports how scientific papers written by researchers prove the WIV was doing dangerous genetic modification research – so-called ‘gain of function’ experiments – in unsafe laboratories.

    ‘As we continue to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe it’s time to completely dismiss the wet market as the source of the outbreak,’ said Rep. Mike McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, as he released the report by the panel’s GOP staff.

    ‘Instead, as this report lays out, a preponderance of the evidence proves that all roads lead to the WIV.

    ‘We know gain-of-function research was happening at the WIV and we know it was being done in unsafe conditions.’

    The Republicans then assessed that once the extent of the contamination became known the the Chinese officials, their efforts were focused on covering-up the incident and blaming the wet market.

    “When they realized what happened, Chinese Communist Party officials and scientists at the WIV began frantically covering up the leak, including taking their virus database offline in the middle of the night and requesting more than $1 million for additional security,” McCaul said.

    “But their coverup was too late – the virus was already spreading throughout the megacity of Wuhan,” he said of the pandemic that as of Monday has killed at least 4,225,602 people globally.

    The investigation also revealed a previously unknown request in July 2019 for a $1.5 million overhaul of a hazardous waste treatment system for the facility, even though it was less than two years old.

    It included requests for maintenance on “environmental air disinfection system” and “hazardous waste treatment system” – which would indicate concerns about how these systems meant to prevent lab leaks were functioning, the report alleges.

    The fact that the Republicans managed to obtain so much information and evidence that supports their findings is most impressive, especially in light of the fact that the Chinese have created an information blockade around Wuhan. The report is linked here, for those of you who want to review the material further.

    McCaul also issued an addendum to the original report, which highlighted both the gain-of-function research that was occurring at the facility. The analysis also hit upon a point I have made: The research with the bioengineered viruses were being conducted at a biosafety level well below internationally acceptable standards for biological work.”

  8. Julio Rosas has obviously never taught kindergarten….

    Abbott and the rest of Texas really should get their own Covid house in order before they blame migrants. Texas covid rate has been on steep incline since Abott relaxed all restrictions and public health measure.

    I doubt the media’s political coverage has anything to do with vaccine hesitancy. The anti-vax movement has been fairly strong for about 25 years. The anti-science and anti-intellectualism of some politicians pandering to their base has only made it worse.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/appeals-court-upholds-indiana-universitys-covid-19-vaccine-mandate_3930897.html

    “A federal appeals court on Monday upheld Indiana University’s (IU) COVID-19 vaccine requirement, after a group of students sued the school arguing that the mandate is unconstitutional.

    The Chicago-based appeals court upheld an Indiana district court judge’s ruling that found that the university was acting reasonably “in pursuing public health and safety for its campus communities.”

    Both courts rejected a request by eight IU students, who sued the school in June, claiming the inoculation requirement would violate their constitutional rights by forcing them to receive unwanted medical treatment.

    The policy makes vaccination a condition of attending the university, and students who don’t want to get vaccinated can also seek “ample educational opportunities” elsewhere, according to the appeals court ruling.”

  10. The vaccine ruling has nothing to do with the last election and everything to do with precedent. The US has long allowed corporations, bot for profit and non profit, to require medical procedures of its employees or those under their care. Drug testing, vaccines, physicals, etc have long been required by many corporations. Recently, the Supreme Court has allowed corporations to limit the type of medical care an employee receives, i.e birth control not to mention the ways and means private health insurance can limited access on any number of excuses – wrong health care supplier, pre-existing conditions, etc. Private companies can sometimes dictate where you are treated, depending on jurisdiction. Yet these students think a vaccine violates the constitution.

    Within the university system, the courts have long given schools wide latitude in terms of rules governing student behaviour. Religious institutions in particular can levy consequences for what is legal medical treatment elsewhere — birth control, abortion, etc. In addition minors can be forced to accept medical and psychological treatment by their parents; especially in terms of therapy and behaviour modification. The precedent for medical treatment, public health and corporate rules goes back decades.

    The Albany County district attorney has confirmed his office has opened its own criminal probe following the attorney general’s investigation”

    “What to Know

    1- The New York attorney general’s investigation into allegations of sexual harassment found Gov. Andrew Cuomo “sexually harassed multiple women, and in doing so violated federal and state law”

    2- The 165-page report details the inner-working of the Governor’s office, including an effort in at least one instance to retaliate against one of those women

    3- Investigators said interviews with 179 and tens of thousands of documents corroborate reports of 11 women, including a state trooper assigned to the governor’s protection detail”

Reminds me; I read some articles on the US gymnastic team, the doctor, and the cover up — any arm chair critic who talks about stoicism, perseverance, etc needs to shut up — the abuse these girls stoically dealt with as they persevered and accomplished their goals is amazing. The cover up and finger pointing within that organization leads me to think the best way to deal with it is to blow it up and start fresh. Meanwhile, Biles and the rest deserve respect.

  16. Maxne Waters isn’t the problem — legislatures in America seem incapable of doing anything other than blaming each other. They rely on the executive and the judicial branches to create law instead of the legislature. Democrats were once more guilty of this as Republicans but now the latter embraces the court and executive in the same manner. You could abolish legislatures nation wide and people would barely notice.
