Hawaii Senate Dem Majority Leader Gets 3 Years in Prison for Bribery

Former Senate Majority Leader J. Kalani English, 55, pleaded guilty to honest services wire fraud in February, admitting he accepted bribes from a Hawaii business owner in exchange for shaping legislation that would benefit a company involved in publicly financed cesspool conversion projects...

English “peddled the power and influence of his position as a Hawaii State Senator and Majority Leader to enrich himself and betray the trust bestowed upon him by those he was elected to serve,” U.S. prosecutors said in a sentencing memo urging the judge to send him to prison for three-and-a-half years.

The sentence, a little more than three years, must send a “stern and lasting message” that corruption of elected officials will be punished, the memo said. ...

Choy is a prolific donor, as are his immediate family members and business associates. Choy, his family members, and his employees from various companies have donated more than $356,000 to political campaigns since 2014, according to campaign finance data. Of that, Choy has contributed more than $160,000 to the elections and reelections of numerous Democrats.

Choy himself has donated to 55 campaigns — including 29 sitting lawmakers — since 2014. Money has gone to former Gov. Neil Abercrombie and current Gov. David Ige. He has most recently contributed to former Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s campaign for governor, and to Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi’s campaign.


"Stern and lasting message" my ass. Only life in prison will do. Singapore is a much better country than the US in this way.

You know, when I think about it, the push for the poke and croak, the resources available on PatNet (@Rin, among others), ivermectin, the @Rin cocktail. I'm half of the opinion that Patnet saved my family's life, or at least spared us multiple seasons of "illness and death." Thanks @Patrick, @Rin, and @richwicks, for keeping my family largely out of harm's way.

What did I do?

The only thing I did was say this injection is bullshit as was the "pandemic", and I concluded that in part by @OnVacation - he went through CDC stats and it was pretty clear we were never in a pandemic.

This has been a wake up call to me too. I didn't think they could lie about outright data, but they can. I remember 20 years ago, if a company pulled some shit, a bunch of engineers would expose because they'd go through the math or stats - nobody does this anymore and when they do, the information doesn't get far.

We’ve all picked up on the “carrots and sticks” employed to ensure compliance with the Covid narratives.

For example, the “scientists,” public health experts, doctors and hospitals who supported the authorized Covid narrative were literally paid vast sums of money for following the CDC and NIH’s medical protocols.

If a patient was classified as having Covid, the hospital and medical provider received a significant financial bonus. Using ventilators got them more money. Prescribing remdesivir (“run-death-is-near”) was a source of extra profit.

Congress, tapping into the unlimited line of credit from its Magic Printing Press, kicked in extra money to reward people, organizations, states and cities who went along with all the harmful and unnecessary “mitigation” measures.

Scientists at colleges who produce studies that fit the narrative received major grants from Dr. Fauci’s pool of bribery funds.

The mainstream press and the scientific journals were rewarded with advertising spends (and Bill Gates’ journalism grants) if they continued to promote all the false or dubious narratives. ...

It’s now public record that Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins of the NIH targeted the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration for severe reprisals. For some interesting reason, both public health leaders also pushed the “natural origins” theory of this virus and made sure those who disagreed were censored and pilloried by sycophant allies in the mainstream press. ...

The best example is probably the case study of Julian Assange, who committed the “crime” of publishing TRUE information about the Military Industrial Complex (most significantly by exposing likely war crimes in the Iraq War).

After he did this, Assange felt it necessary to flee to the sanctuary of a friendly embassy in London. After several years, the governments of the UK and America figured out a way to arrest Assange and he’s spent the last several years isolated (and silent) in prison.

At this writing, the U.S. government is still trying to extradite this Australian citizen to America to try him for “treason” and keep him in prison until he dies. ...

The same message has been sent to the many people arrested for the January 6 “Insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol.

I’m not sure how many of these protestors are still in jail today, but the number is large. Many of these protestors - most of whom simply walked through a public building - have been jailed without bail for years and some have been kept in atrocious, solitary-confinement conditions. ...

The Establishment actually fears only two things:
Losing control … and thus losing their continued wealth and power and their ability to complete their unfinished agendas.

Being exposed as criminals themselves, which very possibly would result in them spending the rest of their lives in the same type prison cell as Julian Assange, or even worse - possible death sentences.

Last week, MedPage Today ran a story headlined, “Top Patient Advocacy Orgs Have Industry Ties in Leadership, Study Shows.” The sub-headline added, “Half had paid staff or executives with pharma and medical device conflicts of interest.”

In other words, Big Pharma has captured the pro-patient charities.

Patient Advocacy Organizations (PAOs) are charitable non-profits allegedly organized to represent patient interests. They include organizations like American Cancer Society, the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, the Cancer Research Institute, and the Foundation Fighting Blindness — which were all found to have leaders with direct ties to big pharma.

According to a recent research letter published in JAMA Internal Medicine, 75% of the 50 biggest PAOs in the U.S. have board members or senior leadership with ties to the pharmaceutical or medical device industry, in many cases working for industry and the charity at the same time.

Study co-author Shamik Bhat, BS, Yale School of Medicine, told MedPage, "the vast majority of these groups have not only financial ties, but now we can see that they also have deep integration in their boards, and their higher-up leadership, with industry."

The data wasn’t easy for the researchers to find. Regulations do not require nonprofits to disclose broad conflicts of interest like these. The study researchers had to scour personal websites and LinkedIn profiles to discover industry ties to PAO leadership. "Whether it's intentional or not, I think transparency for a lot of these patient advocacy organizations is a pretty significant weakness at the moment," Bhat noted.

You don’t say.

All in all, a completely unsurprising finding, and it explains a lot about how these groups all fell immediately in line with government policy during the pandemic, including opposing early covid treatments and pushing mandates, expensive deadly medicines, and the ventilator.

How convenient for the Obama coalition, and the establishment government now under attack by two populist movements, Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party to slander them with charges of racism. As Vivek Ramaswamy points out in his book Woke, Inc., their way of wriggling out of the mess of the $700 billion bailout was to pivot to social justice and racism specifically.

... Is it merely a coincidence that the sharp drop in COVOD diagnoses coincided with the end of special federal reimbursement for COVID cases?







Simple suggestion: if the Branch COVIDians want the COVID numbers to soar again, just get Washington to reinstitute having reimbursement formulas. Problem solved!

Until I was about thirty, I walked around with the smug assumption that the United States was free from the bribery and graft that I heard about while traveling in Mexico and various African countries. With the Financial Crisis of 2008, it became evident to me that bribery in the United States isn’t a matter of greasing the palms of state officials with cash, but by intimating that a lucrative job awaits them after they leave government service.

Peter Doshi—senior editor at the BMJ and associate professor at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy—just published a report titled The FDA and Moderna’s cosy relationship: how lax rules enable a revolving door culture in which he recounts how two senior FDA officials who played substantial roles in approving Moderna’s COVID-19 shot later got jobs working at Moderna.

The two officials noted in Doshi’s report—Dr. Doran Fink and Dr. Jaya Goswami—are merely the latest in the revolving door between the FDA and the Big Pharma companies its officials are supposed to regulate.

Biden Admin Official Arrested in Human Trafficking Sting

A top administrator in Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Defense (DOD) has been arrested in Georgia on human trafficking charges.

Stephen Hovanic is a senior administrator for the DOD’s school system in the Americas region.

According to a report from the Daily Caller, Hovanic was arrested on November 15.

He was reportedly busted during a human trafficking sting in Coweta County, Georgia.

The Federal Government Paid Media Outlets To Promote The Covid Vaccine

Can you trust reporting on the Covid vaccine by media outlets paid by the government to promote the vaccine?




... As it turns out, mainstream media’s nearly monolithic coverage of mRNA vaccines and other Covid measures can be at least partially explained by a clear financial interest. Recently, independent journalist Breanna Morello — who left Fox News because of draconian vaccine mandates in New York City — alerted me to a FOIA request filed by the conservative media company The Blaze, which found a number of major media outlets were paid to promote the Covid vaccine. Such venues included The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, NBC, CNN, Fox News, and several others. The Blaze’s report received little coverage — even in conservative media (perhaps because some of those outlets were also paid by HHS) ideologically predisposed to criticize government-fuelled narratives on the pandemic.

New Zealand Database Administrator Who Designed System For "Providers" To Get Paid Per Shot Given, Crosses Ranks And Joins Opposition: Tearfully Confesses To Liz Gunn STAGGERINGLY High Death Counts

"This Data Is A River Of Tears," He Says. Calls Data "impossible" for NZ Government to Deny. It's their own data.

A database administrator in New Zealand has given NZ politician, journalist, and attorney Liz Gunn a data leak about deaths following Covid shots in New Zealand that shows what she calls “eye watering” death counts, in some cases over 30% of the injected at a given site died. “This data is a river of tears, and I can’t go on with it,” the man, occasionally breaking down, and seeming to show signs of PTSD, tells Gunn:

“It has to stop now.” He says his data is “…impossible to deny” as it is hard, government data, of 2.2 million people in New Zealand who were injected.

There is an additional bombshell in all this that made my jaw drop immediately, namely the fact that he built the system that collected this data as a system to pay each “provider” for each shot they administered. ...

The crude death rate for NZ is 0.75%—and has held stable for a long time, including during the so-called '“Covid Pandemic” of 2020. Following the rollout, the excess death rates in certain cohorts rises above 30%/ For example: A place called Queens Park Medical—837 persons were injected, of those, 253 dies, which is 30.2%

He shows a rundown during which excess deaths are spiking every single day, at about the same rate. ...

MAORI WERE ESPECIALLY TARGETED:

See the paid, sophisticated genocide via media here. They had special TV channels reporting in the Mãori native language of ‘te reo Mãori’ (“te reo” means “the language,”) breathlessly on Maori vaccination rates. In one graph, for one region, it’s just under 90% ...

Interview clip with Liz Gunn, in which she describes a strong, Maori warrior man breaking down sobbing and telling her: “Liz, I have been to 60 funerals in 11 months. I can’t carry one more coffin.”

This is why Reiner Fuellmich was so hopeful that it would be the Maori who would bring the whole thing down.

Romanian prosecutors are investigating the country's former prime minister for spending $1 billion on Pfizer Covid jabs that were never used

Worldwide, governments have paid Pfizer and other vaccine companies tens of billions of dollars for Covid shots that will never be used because of lack of demand...

The European Union happily agreed to pay 19.5 euros per jab - almost $24 based on exchange rates at the time. (The doses were to be split proportionally among EU members so they would not bid against each other for them.) ...

While yesterday’s vote does not guarantee changes will be file, it means Romania’s National Anticorruption Directorate, or DNA, can officially open an investigation into Citu and the former health ministers, as the DNA requested last week in making a 27-volume-report to the Senate.

The prosecutors claimed their initial investigation showed that Citu and the other ministers ordered the shots without considering the demand or need for them.


And if you look into why Citu and similar criminals ordered so much of the deadly toxxine from Pfizer, I think you'll find suitcases full of cash or similar inducements.

Scam Exposed: Donations To Clinton Foundation Plummeted After Clinton Lost The Election

Corruption: Throughout the presidential campaign there was plenty of talk about whether the Clinton Foundation was a legitimate charity or a pay-to-play scam. The latest financial data from the charity provides the answer.

Controversy over the foundation erupted after Peter Schweizer's 2015 book — "Clinton Cash" — suggested that the foundation served as a way for donors to curry favor with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Coincidences?
And, indeed, the multitude of connections that slowly turned out became hard to dismiss as coincidental. There was the fact that 85 of the 154 private interests who'd met with Clinton during her tenure at state were Clinton Foundation donors.

Emails turned up showing how the foundation intervened to arrange a meeting between Clinton and the Crown Prince of Bahrain, a country that had been a major foundation donor. A Chicago commodities trader who donated $100,000 to the foundation got a top job on a State Department arms control panel, despite having no experience in the area. On and on it went.

Earlier this year, news broke that the FBI was investigating whether the foundation violated tax laws by converting donations to personal or political uses. In December, Republicans plan to hold a hearing into the probe, before handing control of the House to Democrats.

Throughout all this, the Clinton's and their defenders insisted that foundation was doing great work for mankind. It was helping the poor and sick around the world. It got top ratings from charity rating agencies. They said there wasn't any hard evidence of wrongdoing.




Donations Evaporate
But the most glaring indictment of the Clinton Foundation came from what happened last year, after Hillary Clinton lost the election — and effectively ended her political career.

First, the Clinton's almost immediately shuttered the Clinton Global Initiative and laid off 22 employees.

Now, fresh financial documents show that contributions and grants to the Clinton Foundation plunged since Hillary lost her election bid. They dropped from $216 million in 2016 to just $26.5 million in 2017 — a stunning 88% fall. Throughout Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State, the foundation pulled in an average of $254 million a year. (See the nearby chart below for a timeline.)

If the Clinton Foundation was as good as defenders claimed, why did all its big-time donors suddenly lose interest? The only reasonable explanation is that donors weren't interested in what the foundation supposedly did for humanity. They were interested in the political favors they knew their money would buy.

Ratio’ing Pfizer isn’t that hard to do these days so for good measure it was time to school the NIH on their deceptive marketing.



Yes, NIH tried to conflate these modified RNAs as any other mRNA your cells make concurrently with them embroiled in a patent royalty fight with Moderna. For those not familiar with this irony, Clarence Thomas ruled that natural RNA is not patent eligible. It must be man modified for patent eligibility and man is this stuff modified. From N1 methyl pseudouridine, codon optimizations and 2 Proline changes, these mRNAs are a patent attorneys wet dream.

They can’t have it both ways where they argue to USPTO that they are not natural and to the public that they are.

https://www.science.org/content/article/us-supreme-court-strikes-down-human-gene-patents

Why would they do this?

Patent royalty on inventions like this can range from 1-10% of net sales and companies don’t mind paying higher royalties when it’s to a government agency that becomes the marketing department of the technology.

So I’m going to bet that $5-10B of royalty are on the line for a $40B/year budgeted institution. That’s a big nut that will sway any institution to become the sales force for pharma.

This factual reveal led to a 12 hour TwitMo which implies Twitter is party to this racketeering.

This caught the eye of this journalist.

https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/post-acute-wednesday-december-13


The study referenced in the Mirror article published in Nature Medicine back on August 21st with the bland title, “Postacute sequelae of COVID-19 at 2 years.” As you can probably guess, nothing in the study justifies any “urgent death warning,” whatever that is. The researchers studied 140,000 VA patients and found a slightly elevated risk of death for six months following mild covid infection, and a higher (+14%) risk following hospitalization for covid infection lasting for two years (and running, since that’s when the study ended).

It wasn’t just death; that’s just what the Mirror focused on. The researchers allegedly found a higher risk for most (60%) of a very long list of problems they called “postacute sequelae.” It's such an impressively-gigantic list that I though it would be easier to just show you the study’s chart...

In my experience as a lawyer during the pandemic, the Veteran’s Administration refused to treat veterans — making them ‘patients’ — unless they were jabbed. So it’s fair to assume all 140,000 VA patients in this study drank the mRNA cocktail (or were coerced). So the study’s conclusion only applies to jabbed people, which unintentionally makes it specially interesting...

I’ve learned to start reviewing studies at the ethics disclosures. Check out this list of notable authors:

B.B. reports receiving consultation fees from AstraZeneca. Z.A.A. reports receiving consultation fees from Gilead Sciences and funding (unrelated to this work) from Tonix Pharmaceuticals. Z.A.A. and Y.X. report consulting (uncompensated) for Pfizer.
Haha, my favorite one was Y.X. — Yan Xie — who apparently consults for Pfizer for free. He’s a volunteer! Of course these whitecoat volunteers are trying to help blame all these health problems on long covid, so that nothing else gets the blame. That would be unfortunate.

The following three facts tell you everything you need to know about the study’s stated conclusions: (1) it only included vaccinated people, (2) its author list was stacked with pharma professionals, and (3) it only included patients who came in for their covid infections.

With those facts in mind, there’s nothing alarming about this study, which seems more designed as cover for defective vaccine products. ...

Finally, I’d like to point out the hysterical double-standard at play here. If you showed one of these medical fetishists data plotting higher adverse cardiac events within 48 hours of injection, they’d scream — at the top of their lungs — correlation does not equal causation! But lookie here, in their study they conclude, without even trying to prove a mechanism, just treating it were an established fact, that the covid virus caused all these other sequelae in a 100% jabbed population. Correlated! Caused! Ha!

Nor did the dishonest researchers mention their patients’ jab status, not one time. I might never even have known if I hadn’t gotten a gazillion calls from veterans during the pandemic asking for legal help because they were told they wouldn’t be treated unless they took the shots. We called it the ‘VA Mandate.’

https://nypost.com/2023/12/13/business/ex-facebook-diversity-manager-pleads-guilty-to-bilking-4m-from-company-in-kickback-scheme-feds/


A former Facebook diversity program manager pleaded guilty to scamming the social media giant out of more than $4 million through a scheme in which she faked business deals in exchange for kickbacks, the Justice Department said.

Barbara Furlow-Smiles, who served as lead strategist and global head of employee resource groups and diversity engagement at Facebook, used the stolen funds to live an extravagant lifestyle that spanned from California to Georgia, prosecutors said.

From approximately January 2017 to September 2021, Furlow-Smiles led Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs at Facebook and was responsible for developing and executing DEI initiatives, operations, and engagement programs,” according to the DOJ.

The feds said Furlow-Smiles, who had access to company credit cards and the ability to approve invoices as part of her role at the company, “caused Facebook to pay numerous individuals,” including her friends and relatives, “for goods and services never provided to the company.”

Those individuals would later funnel kickbacks to Furlow-Smiles.
