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.

... 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.

OMG I rode the school bus with that guy. I looked into it (can't be too many Steven Hovanics) and it turns out to be him. Amazing, as he was the classical good guy in High School. Went to West Point, but I do not think he graduated from it.

Judicial Watch: DC Government Spends $270,000 To Repaint “Black Lives Matter” on Street Near White House

Judicial Watch announced today it received 25 pages of records in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Washington, DC Department of Transportation which show the cost to taxpayers to repaint the Black Lives Matter slogan on a street in the nation’s capital was over $270,000. (The repainting seems to have taken place shortly before Black Lives Matter groups began defending Hamas terrorist murders of Jews in Israel.)

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. ...


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.

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.


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.


Within hours of this article from Greg publishing, I was back in TwitMo for 7 days for once again, factually accurate tweets.

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.’

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.

Hunter Biden Given ‘Green Light to Commit Crimes’ in Anticipation of Presidential Pardon before Father Leaves Office

Reports are beginning to emerge to suggest that Democrat President Joe Biden is planning to issue a presidential pardon for his son Hunter before he leaves office.

Such a move would explain why Biden’s weaponized Department of Justice (DOJ) appears to be rushing charges through against the first son before the 2024 election.

President Biden has repeatedly said, and the White House has likewise reiterated, that he won’t use his power of executive clemency to issue a pardon for his son.

Hunter Biden is currently facing mounting legal woes and possible time in federal prison.

Yet, not everyone believes Biden will refrain from pardoning his son eventually.

Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow thinks a pardon is inevitable.

Hunter has been given “a green light to commit all the crimes between now and November,” Marlow warns.

Like I mentioned before, I believe that all the phony charges on Trump are being made as a Hunter counterbalance. Biden can then Pardon both Hunter and Trump "To get this bickering over with and get back to working for the American people." Of course, a pardon for Trump will carry the price of Trump not running for office.

Yes, I think I understand the mechanism of our self-destruction perfectly now:

1. Individual failures who come from failed groups demand "equity" out of resentment at their own failure.
2. Liberal white people, mostly childless women, wrongly conclude that those failures are somehow being discriminated against.
3. Those same liberals demand the abolition of competence as a criterion for employment to responsible positions.
4. The failures, now in a position to steal, immediately do so. And they do it so stupidly and blatantly that everyone sees it.

CEOs Pay for Advanced Copies of Questions at Senate Hearings

Corporations and powerful elites facing investigations can pay lobbyists for an inside scoop, Twitter File documents show. ...

The emails show the special tips and tricks in Washington, D.C., available to those who can pay for it. When legislation that would potentially harm Twitter was set to be released, lobbyists secured an advance copy and shared it with the company. When congressional staff met to discuss technology and legal issues important to Twitter, the lobbyists shared the confidential memos with Twitter’s executives.

And when Twitter and Facebook were slated to testify in 2022 at a Senate oversight hearing concerning foreign influence and extremism on social media, the company’s lobbyists came through again.

In September 2022, about two weeks before the scheduled hearing, Michael Bopp, a former Senate aide specializing in hearing preparation and investigation response, emailed Twitter’s lobbying team. “Here is a draft set of Republican questions we have pulled together,” wrote Bopp, sharing a 16-page memo that outlined the general topic areas and specific lines of questions from the GOP members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

Study Calling For “Unvaccinated” People to Be Barred From Public Venues Was Authored by Pfizer Adviser
by Ethan Huff, Natural News December 30, 2023

A 2022 study out of Canada that was used as justification to impose harsh restrictions on unvaccinated people accessing public venues has been exposed as a propaganda manuscript.

Researchers Joseph Hickey, Ph.D., and Denis Rancourt, Ph.D., published their own peer-reviewed study looking at the aforementioned fraudulent one, which was authored by epidemiologist Dr. David Fisman from the University of Toronto. They found that Fisman’s mathematical models are flawed, offering no true scientific backing for the imposition of anti-unvaccinated public policy.

According to Fisman, unvaccinated people pose a disproportionate risk to vaccinated people, even though the latter are supposed to be protected against disease because of their vaccines. Fisman’s claim is flawed, of course, and there is good reason for that: the guy appears to be a Big Pharma insider.

The Defender (Children’s Health Defense) reported that Fisman has worked as an adviser to vaccine makers like Pfizer, Seqirus, AstraZeneca, and Sanofi-Pasteur. He also directly advised the Canadian government on its Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) policies and restrictions.

In speaking to reporters about his flawed study, Fisman explained that the unvaccinated should not have a choice to remain as such because they are “creating risk for those around you.”

How an unvaccinated person could ever pose any kind of threat to a vaccinated person remains unknown since the shots are supposed to provide immunity to disease. Is Fisman admitting that vaccines do nothing to protect one’s health?

Even so, the media outlets Fisman spoke to ran with his anti-unvaccinated nonsense, producing bizarre headlines like:

Salon: “Merely hanging out with unvaccinated puts the vaccinated at higher risk: study”
Forbes: “Study Shows Unvaccinated People Are At Increased Risk Of Infecting The Vaccinated”
Medscape: “My Choice? Unvaccinated Pose Outsize Risk to Vaccinated”

More than 100 other media outlets ran similarly bizarre and nonsensical headlines based on Fisman’s study while the Canadian Parliament used it as “evidence” to lock people down at home, shut down small businesses, and force the public into masking and getting “vaccinated” for COVID.

💊 CNBC ran a story yesterday headlined, “Florida wins first FDA approval to import cheaper drugs from Canada.”

With great fanfare in 2021, with media praising him as some kind of big-corporation-battling, pharma-defying revolutionary, Biden signed an executive order directing the FDA to work with states to allow importing the exact same drugs from Canada that are sold to Americans for ten times as much. Florida invested a huge amount of work “applying” with the FDA and now, three years later, the FDA has responded with a conditional approval.

It’s a Biden deal, which means don’t hold your breath.

Among a long, bizarre chain of restrictions, Florida must be the middleman. Americans are too dumb to order their own drugs from Canada. And before Florida may distribute any Canadian drugs, the Sunshine State must first send the FDA a mountain of detail on each and every drug it plans to import, to “ensure that those treatments are not counterfeit or ineffective.” Florida then has to “relabel those drugs to be consistent with FDA-approved labeling.”

Sounds like a lot of work.

There’s more. Once it starts, Florida has to submit quarterly reports to the FDA showing all the cost savings and reporting any potential safety issues, among another long list of required data. And after all that, the FDA’s approval only lets Florida import drugs for two years, and then the state must re-apply.

In other words, the FDA is making sure nobody can legally get cheap Canadian drugs. Or maybe I’m just being cynical again and the Biden plan will actually work great. Any betters out there?

Wait, after deliberately allowing the extremely dangerous toxic slime injection to maim and kill as many people as possible, the FDA now pretends to be concerned about safety?
