White House admits to 'flagging problematic posts' for Facebook, says it's necessary to fight medical 'misinformation'

White House admits to 'flagging problematic posts' for Facebook, says it's necessary to fight medical 'misinformation' | 15 July 2021 | As the Biden administration called "medical misinformation" a public health threat, the White House said it was working with social media to flag "problematic" posts. Critics called it an end-run around the First Amendment. "We're flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation [aka truth]," White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday. In addition to directing the company to censor people, the government is also working to "get trusted content [aka Big Pharma's propaganda] out there" by putting medical professionalsin touch with social media influencers. Psaki's admission came after Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued an advisory declaring misinformation "an imminent and insidious threat to our nation's health." [Just as CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald, argued in Google Archipelago, social media sites are extensions of the state! And they are leftist authoritarians. So much for the idiots among the libertarians and leftists who kept saying "they’re a private company they can do whatever they want." This collusion between the state and Big Tech now clearly represents the infringement of the First Amendment by the government.]

CDC sued for withholding records between top personnel and teachers' unions on school reopenings

CDC sued for withholding records between top personnel and teachers' unions on school reopenings --The CDC allegedly failed to 'completely fulfill' the records request | 15 July 2021 | A watchdog group is suing the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over its failure to produce communications between top agency brass and teachers' unions over school reopenings. Americans for Public Trust (APT), a D.C.-based ethics nonprofit, filed suit Thursday after failing to receive complete records the group says could show "undue political influence" of outside groups over the CDC's decision-making process shaping its school reopening guidance. "A few months back, Americans for Public Trust requested documents from the CDC. However, the CDC released only a handful of pages out of hundreds of documents received," said Caitlin Sutherland, executive director of APT. "And that small portion revealed the teachers' unions influenced the CDC to keep our schools closed."

Three Countries on Earth Declined the COVID Vax. All Three of Their Presidents Are Now Dead | 10 July 2021 | There are only three countries on this planet whose government officials refused to accept the COVID-19 vaccine from the World Health Organization: Burundi, Tanzania, and Haiti. The officials in those countries who declined the vax were presidents in each of those countries. In Burundi, it was President Pierre Nkurunziza. In Tanzania, it was President John Magufuli. In Haiti, it was President Jovenel Moïse. All three of those presidents are now dead. To many people, their deaths look like murder; although the one in Haiti was straight-up murder, he was assassinated by men with guns.

Texas House votes to track down, arrest 58 Democratic members who fled if they don't return | 13 July 2021 | Members of the Texas state House voted 76-4 to deploy law enforcement to track down and arrest 58 Democratic members who fled the state to break quorum to prevent a vote on a Republican-backed election bill. The House members voted on two motions brought by Rep. Will Metcalf, chair of the House Administration Committee to record present session members, to ban members in attendance from leaving the chamber without first obtaining approval, and enable "the sergeant at arms, or officers appointed by him, send for all absentees...under warrant of arrest if necessary." Texas law requires a two-thirds quorum of the 150-member House body to approve legislation, which it just falls short of without the 58 Democratic members.

Capitol Police Will Use Military Surveillance Equipment on Citizens to 'Identify Emerging Threats' | 12 July 2021 | Last week, after Nancy Pelosi announced that they would be opening "state-police" offices in key regions across the country, the Capitol Hill Police are being reclassified as "an intelligence-based protective agency." They will be given access to high-powered US military surveillance equipment that is traditionally used to monitor enemy forces in war zones. On July 2nd, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin granted the use of 8 'Persistent Surveillance Systems Ground -- Medium (PSSG-M) units' to the federal police force. The equipment will be added to the current security infrastructure and be used to help assist "steady-state" missions and monitor US civilian actions to "identify emerging threats."

Thousands of Cubans joined street protests from Havana to Santiago on Sunday in the biggest anti-government demonstrations on the Communist-run island in decades. They were protesting against the country's dire economic crisis and handling of the pandemic, but many went further, calling for an end to communism and chanting "freedom."

Biden-allied groups, including the DNC, planning to work with SMS carriers to police text messages critical of vaccines | 12 July 2021 | The Biden administration [regime, truth be told] is casting conservative opponents of its Covid-19 vaccine campaign as dangerous and extreme, adopting a more aggressive political posture in an attempt to maneuver through the public health conundrum. The White House has decided to hit back harder on misinformation and scare tactics after Republican lawmakers and conservative activists pledged to fight the regime's stated plans to go "door-to-door" to increase vaccination rates. The pushback will include directly calling out social media platforms and conservative news shows that promote such tactics... Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel [alleged] misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages.

Biden signed an order ending border wall construction on his first day in office. His administration also ended the Remain-in-Mexico policy, officially called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

"Please note that after a review of the photographs from the search, there appears to have been a miscommunication and that statement appears to be inaccurate. The Lego set was in a box and not fully constructed at the time of the search, as pictured below," they wrote.

Why are they dying? | 9 July 2021 | More manatees have already died in 2021 than any other year in state history, as biologists point to seagrass loss in the Indian River Lagoon as a catalyst for starvation and malnutrition. At least 841 manatees have died in Florida waters, mostly in Brevard County's stretch of the 156-mile-long lagoon, from Jan. 1 to July 2, according to the latest Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission data available Friday.

Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency to address the manatee crisis and the ecologically suffering lagoon.

Panetta calls on Biden to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for military | 10 July 2021 | Former Defense Secretary [deep-state nut-job] Leon Panetta said that Joe Biden should require all military members to get the COVID-19 vaccine. In an interview with Greta Van Susteren set to air on Sunday, Panetta said it was a matter of "national security."

That's an issue involving our national security," Panetta, who served under the Obama administration, said... The vaccines are under an emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Therefore, the Pentagon cannot legally require that all military members get the vaccine, although Biden could grant an exception to this rule.
