Alexander Vindman Secretly Pitching Ukrainian Military for Millions in Defense Contracts –Personnel employed under the plan would be ‘highly experienced former soldiers or contractors in Iraq and/or Afghanistan’ | 3 March 2023 | Documents recently obtained by Human Events show that Alexander Vindman has been pitching the government of Ukraine to obtain lucrative defense contracts. In August 2022, Vindman, operating as CEO of Trident Support, pitched a deck on a Ukraine Weapons Systems Sustainment Center to address problems with Ukraine’s weapons management, namely readiness, repair, and maintenance. Vindman proposed that for 12 million in initial funding, his company, Trident Support, would bring support closer to the front lines by providing a logistical midpoint from which equipment could be distributed. The idea behind the proposal is that Trident Support would be a middle-man between NATO weapons and Ukrainian forces, teaching the latter how to operate and repair the equipment, while taking an exorbitant fee from Ukraine to do it.

Blinken lied about exchange with Lavrov – Moscow | 3 March 2023 | U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken lied when he claimed that he discussed a jailed American citizen during a brief exchange with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow has insisted. Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Blinken revealed that he and Lavrov “spoke briefly” on the sidelines of a meeting of G20 foreign ministers in India. Among other things, the American official claimed he had “raised the wrongful detention of Paul Whelan,” a former U.S. Marine currently serving a 16-year prison term in Russia for espionage. “The United States has put forward a serious proposal. Moscow should accept it,” Blinken added. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova denied the claims on Friday, saying she had asked Lavrov about the exchange with Blinken. The top Russian diplomat told her that his American counterpart had not brought up Whelan’s case, with Zakharova describing Blinken’s statement as “lies” and an example of “astounding” behavior by the U.S. government.

They were demanding it. “Stop the shots” was the refrain of those who had treated COVID patients over the last three years and those injured by the vaccine. On Monday and Tuesday, the medical freedom organization MS Against Mandates (MAM) held the Mississippi Medical Freedom Conference in Jackson, Mississippi, which included over a dozen physicians, several whistleblowers, six physician-confirmed vaccine-injured patients, and two parents whose sons died after receiving the vaccines.

California residents stranded in ‘once-in-a-generation’ snow event need food, medicine | 3 March 2023 | Residents of mountain communities in California have been stuck in their homes with little food following what meteorologists are calling “once-in-a-generation” snowfall. The severe weather knocked out power, and snow led to roof collapses. County workers took more than 500 calls for aid — including asking for baby formula and medicine — on Wednesday while firefighters worked to evacuate the most vulnerable and fight possibly storm-related explosions. The onslaught of storms led to as much as 10 feet of snow for some communities, according to the National Weather Service.

The Attack of the Subversive Elites By CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. | 2 March 2023 | …As I write in The Great Reset and the Struggle for Liberty, the Western world is in the grips and under the control of “subversive elites.” With inordinate power and influence, these people aren’t naturally superior but have as their object the undermining of Western civilization. They can be found in such globalist “Round Table” organizations as the Royal Institute for International Affairs (Chatham House), the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, the Club of Rome, and the World Economic Forum (WEF); in their main international intergovernmental counterpart, the United Nations (UN); and in the monetary organizations that fund the globalist regime, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. All these organizations have had as their objective the undermining of nation states, the destruction of the free market, and the control of the world economic system by a globalist elite. These objectives are now being conducted under the rubric of “stakeholder capitalism,” with the WEF running interference for and coordinating the “public-private partnerships” that are ushering in stakeholder capitalism, supposedly to combat “climate change.
Senate kills Biden ESG investment rule in stunning rebuke –Biden may issue his first veto after Congress voted to repeal his administration’s ESG rule | 1 March 2023 | The Senate on Wednesday passed a disapproval resolution, formally killing a Biden administration Department of Labor rule that encourages private retirement plan fiduciaries to consider environment, social and governance (ESG) factors when making investment decisions for over 150 million Americans. The measure, which only required a simple majority to pass, passed the threshold in a 50-46 vote. The House of Representatives passed it Tuesday in a 216-204 vote, with only one Democrat voting for the bill. Two Democrats voted for the bill in the Senate: Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana. “President [sic] Biden wants to sacrifice seniors’ retirement savings to fund his political agenda,” Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana, who led the bill, told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.
Biden admin makes stunning admission on climate agenda in leaked internal memo –Internal Biden admin memo rejects proposal it admits would produce ‘greater energy security,’ citing climate considerations | 3 March 2023 | The Biden administration acknowledged in a memo, accidentally leaked on Friday, that charging fossil fuel companies less to drill would provide “greater energy security” despite its plans to hike royalty fees. Former Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Director Amanda Lefton recommended late last year that, as part of its climate agenda, the Department of the Interior (DOI) move forward with higher royalty fees for an oil and gas lease sale spanning 958,202 acres in the Cook Inlet off the coast of Alaska, according to the memo obtained by Fox News Digital. DOI Assistant Secretary Laura Daniel-Davis ultimately signed off on the recommendation… Lefton’s specifically recommended the federal government charge drillers with a royalty fee of 18.75% as opposed to an alternative of 16.67% which she said would attract more bids and “be more likely to facilitate expeditious and orderly development of [offshore] resources.”
AG Garland Overruled FBI Agents Who Wanted to Close Trump Document Probe and Approved the Mar-a-Lago Raid | 3 March 2023 | The Washington Post claims that last year two FBI agents wanted to close the sham investigation into President Trump’s documents held a Mar-a-Lago. Instead, AG Merrick Garland overruled them and approved the raid of Mar-a-Lago in one of the darkest days in US history. The Washington Post reported yesterday: “Months of disputes between Justice Department prosecutors and FBI agents over how best to try to recover classified documents from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and residence led to a tense showdown near the end of July last year, according to four people familiar with the discussions. Prosecutors argued that new evidence suggested Trump was knowingly concealing secret documents at his Palm Beach, Fla., home and urged the FBI to conduct a surprise raid at the property. But two senior FBI officials who would be in charge of leading the search resisted the plan as too combative and proposed instead to seek Trump’s permission to search his property, according to the four people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a sensitive investigation.”  
Garland hit for admitting DOJ prosecutes more pro-lifers than ‘terrorists’ because pro-lifers act in daylight –‘Any fool knows that the time of day has absolutely nothing to do with it,’ said one Twitter user | 1 March 2023 | Twitter users blasted U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday after he explained that the U.S. Department of Justice has prosecuted more pro-life activists blocking abortion clinic centers than pro-choicers firebombing pregnancy centers because pro-lifers operate in the “daylight.” Garland made the point that it was easier for the U.S. government to carry out justice against pro-lifers than pregnancy center arsonists in a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on Wednesday. Garland’s claims came after several U.S. senators, including Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, grilled him on what they perceived as is a double standard in the DOJ’s treatment of pro-lifers versus violent pro-choice activists.
Most Americans believe feds helped incite Capitol riot – poll –A Rasmussen survey has found that only 18% of US voters are convinced that the government played no role in the January 6 breach | 4 March 2023 | More than six in ten Americans believe it’s at least “somewhat likely” that federal government agents helped provoke the January 2021 Capitol riot, a new poll has revealed, suggesting that media outlets have largely failed to brand the incident as an insurrection incited by then-President Donald Trump. The poll, released this week by Rasmussen Reports, shows that among the 61% of US voters who think the feds probably helped spur Trump supporters to breach the Capitol, most see that scenario as “very likely.” Just 30% of Americans believe it’s unlikely that undercover agents were involved in the riot, including 18% who say it’s “not at all likely.”
Deporting Fentanyl Dealers Violates Sanctuary City Policies, Says SF Supervisor | 4 March 2023 | San Francisco County Supervisor Shamann Walton told San Franciscans this week the U.S. shouldn’t deport illegal immigrant drug dealers for selling fentanyl, the deadly synthetic opioid that was largely responsible for nearly 2,000 drug overdose deaths in the city since 2020. “There’s been a drug issue in this country for a very long time. But there’s no way we’re going to stand by and allow people to say that one race or immigrants are responsible for these fentanyl deaths,” Walton said at a rally on the steps of City Hall on Feb. 28. Walton defended the city’s sanctuary policies that prohibit city authorities from assisting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in response to a proposal by Supervisor Matt Dorsey to add fentanyl crimes to a list of violent crimes the city uses for cooperating with ICE. Dorsey’s proposal aligns with a recent push for a crackdown on fentanyl dealers initiated by District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.
NYC official says city is spending an estimated $5M a day on housing, feeding migrants –Over 30,000 migrants are currently housed in city taxpayer-funded facilities | 3 March 2023 | New York City is spending nearly 5 million a day to house and feed thousands of migrants — but the Big Apple is still barely getting a dime in aid from Joe Biden and Gov. Kathy Hochul. The mind-blowing cost of the crisis was revealed Friday afternoon after city Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol told a City Council panel that Gotham’s Department of Homeless Services and Health & Hospitals each spend an average of 363 daily to provide food and shelter for just a single migrant. Given that there are more than 30,000 migrants currently being housed in city taxpayer-funded facilities, that would amount to a daily staggering bill of 10.89 million. City Hall then waited until Friday night to officially correct Iscol’s comments. Iscol never weighed back in.

Trump at CPAC: ‘We Are Never Going Back to the Party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush’ | 4 March 2023 | President Donald Trump unloaded on the RINOs Saturday at CPAC. Trump was the keynote speaker this year at the annual conservative event. President Trump won the straw poll overwhelmingly earlier in the day with 62% support. The second-place finisher Governor Ron DeSantis had 20% support. President Trump promised to move the party forward from the old, weak RINO leadership. President Trump said: “…There’s never been anything like this. We had a Republican Party that was ruled by freaks, neocons, globalists, open-border zealots, and fools. But we are never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush.”
Dem Mayor Arrested For Possession of Child Pornography Was Previously Mentored by Pete Buttigieg, Invited to White House | 2 March 2023 | The Gateway Pundit reported earlier on Thursday Patrick Wojahn, the Democratic mayor of College Park, Maryland, resigned just one day before being arrested on 56 counts of possession and distribution of child pornography. The Prince George’s County police department arrested Wojahn soon after they discovered he was allegedly operating a social media account distributing pornography. Before his arrest, Wojahn had friendships with high-profile Democrats such as Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. The Washington Blade in 2019 reported, “Pete Buttigieg has mentored Patrick Wojahn over the years.”
Former South Carolina Attorney Sentenced to Life for Killing Wife and Son | 3 March 2023 | Richard “Alex” Murdaugh, a former attorney in South Carolina, was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole on Friday, a day after he was found guilty of killing his wife and son on their family estate in 2021. Prosecutors said Murdaugh’s 52-year-old wife, Maggie, and 22-year-old son, Paul, were killed at close range near the dog kennels on their family estate on the evening of June 7, 2021. Before Judge Clifton Newman began sentencing proceedings, Murdaugh maintained that he was innocent when being offered the opportunity to make a final appeal. “I respect this court, but I’m innocent,” Murdaugh said. “I would never, under any circumstances, hurt my wife Maggie and I would never…hurt my son Paw Paw,” referencing his son by his nickname.
Alex Murdaugh found guilty of murdering his wife and son | 2 March 2023 | After deliberating for less than three hours Thursday, the jury in the double murder trial of Alex Murdaugh found him guilty of murdering his wife and son, the grisliest and most severe of the allegations faced by the disgraced former South Carolina attorney. Murdaugh, the 54-year-old scion of a prominent and powerful family of local lawyers and solicitors, was also found guilty of two counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime in the killings of Margaret “Maggie” Murdaugh and Paul Murdaugh on June 7, 2021… Prosecutors have indicated they will seek life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murders, sparing him the death penalty.
Atlanta homeless man indicted in deadly stabbing of grandma in Buckhead enclave pushing to secede over crime –Antonio Brown indicted for murder of 77-year-old Eleanor Bowles at her Buckhead, Georgia, home | 1 March 2023 | A homeless man was recently indicted for the deadly December stabbing of a grandmother in Buckhead, an Atlanta suburb gunning to secede from the Democratic-run city over soaring violent crime. Antonio Brown, 23, was indicted by a Fulton County grand jury last week on 12 counts, including murder and armed robbery, in connection to the death of 77-year-old Eleanor Bowles, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.

LGBTQ slurs found at MIT done by students protesting school’s new pro-free speech efforts | 3 March 2023 | Massachusetts Institute of Technology students behind flyers and chalkings recently found at the school that included slurs against LGBTQ people were protesting the university’s emerging policies in support of free speech. The incident came in the wake of a two-month-old MIT faculty resolution that defends freedom of speech and expression — even speech some find “offensive or injurious.” A Feb. 23 memo from MIT administrators stated flyers posted across campus and some chalking outside a school entrance “contained slurs directly targeting the LBGTQ+ community.” MIT’s bias response team investigated, the memo added, and determined “the messages were put up by students choosing to use extreme speech to call attention to and protest what they see as the implications of” several new pro-free speech policies and efforts at the school.
