Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Durham Report: FBI Should Never Have Begun ‘Russia Collusion’ Investigation The long-awaited report by Special Counsel John Durham tasked to look into the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign for Russian collusion was released Monday, concluding that the FBI should have never launched an investigation into the Trump campaign. Durham’s 300-page report found a damning conclusion: “Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report.” “Our investigation also revealed that senior FBI personnel displayed a serious lack of analytical rigor towards the information that they received, especially information received from politically affiliated persons and entities,” Durham’s report said, in apparent reference to the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded Fusion GPS “pee dossier” alleging collusion that the FBI relied on to investigate Trump. Durham said before the allegation from an Australian diplomat that then-Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos told him the Trump campaign had dirt on Clinton, there was no evidence of any Trump campaign collusion with Russia. But despite this “unevaluated intelligence information,” the FBI “swiftly opened an investigation, known as “Crossfire Hurricane.”
Mayorkas: White Supremacy the Greatest Terrorism Threat to U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that a “rise in white supremacy” was the United States’ greatest domestic terror threat. Host Jonathan Capehart asked, Today marks one year since white supremacists opened fire in a black neighborhood at the Top Supermarket in Buffalo. The president, yesterday at his commencement address for Howard University graduates, called white supremacy the major domestic terrorist threat in this country. Is that correct? ” Mayorkas said, “It tragically is. And the terrorism context, domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now. Individuals are driven to violence because of ideologies of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives, personal grievances. Regrettably, we have seen a rise in white supremacy. The principal under lying our work is that when one community is targeted, Jonathan, when one community is targeted, we as a country are targeted.”
Impeaching Mayorkas Gains Momentum Among Key House Republicans Calls among House Republicans to begin impeachment proceedings against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have grown after a week of chaotic and record-breaking illegal migration activity at the southern border. Several members of the House Judiciary Committee, the committee responsible for conducting impeachments, say they support moving forward with the process. “He should be impeached as soon as humanly possible,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) told reporters on Tuesday. Rep. Ben Cline (R-VA) told Breitbart News, “I support beginning impeachment hearings. I’ve said that to chairman [Jim] Jordan. My constituents think it’s long overdue, and I feel as though once we lay out the facts for the American people and for my colleagues in the House, it’ll be inevitable.” Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL) said in a statement, “Mayorkas has done more to help the cartels and child traffickers than he has to help the American people. It is clear he is intentionally violating the law and he must be impeached.” The calls come after the Biden administration lifted the Title 42 border protection last week, which followed at least two consecutive days of border officials apprehending more than 10,000 illegal migrants per day, the highest single-day totals ever recorded, Fox News observed. Overall, under Mayorkas’s watch, officials have apprehended more than five million illegal migrants at the southern border, not including an estimated 1.5 million gotaways.
Biden’s Pick for Top NIH Post Has Deep Ties to Pharma — ‘That Is How Agencies Are Captured’ President Joe Biden this week nominated cancer specialist Dr. Monica Bertagnolli for director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — a move that has already generated controversy because of Bertagnolli’s longstanding financial ties to Pfizer and other pharmaceutical companies. If confirmed, Bertagnolli will replace the NIH’s acting director, Lawrence Tabak, D.D.S., Ph.D., who has held the position since the NIH’s previous permanent director, Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., resigned in December 2021. She will oversee a $47 billion budget that encompasses “a wide variety of medical research beyond cancer, including infectious diseases, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders, diabetes, drug addiction and mental health,” according to The Associated Press. Bertagnolli is director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the largest of the 19 institutes and seven centers under the aegis of the NIH. Biden named her NCI director in August, making her the first woman to hold the position. In announcing the nomination, Biden highlighted Bertagnolli’s past experience as a professor of surgical oncology at Harvard Medical School and a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston; CEO of Alliance Foundation Trials, LLC, which conducts international cancer clinical trials; and group chair of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology. Under Bertagnolli’s leadership, the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology has received more than $323 million in funding from Pfizer and other Big Pharma firms, according to Open Payments data revealed by The Daily Signal and The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project. In a series of tweets, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Children’s Health Defense chairman on leave and Democratic candidate for president in 2024, criticized Bertagnolli’s nomination, noting that “The White House left the Pfizer connection out of its announcement of the nomination.”
Minors Could Get HPV Vaccine Without Parents’ Consent if New York Bill Passes New York on Tuesday became the latest state to advance legislation that would allow minors to receive vaccinations without parental knowledge or consent. New York Assembly Bill A276 would allow minors to receive treatments to prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — including vaccines, such as Merck’s Gardasil human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine — without parental knowledge or consent. In a 16/10 vote, members of the New York State Assembly’s health committee voted to allow the bill to proceed to the state’s rules committee for review, after which it may come to the assembly floor for a final vote. Eight Republicans and two Democrats voted against the legislation. The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) tweeted a video of the vote. During the vote, more than 30 constituents who opposed the vote stood in the room to watch while more than 130 more stood outside the building chanting, “No.” The New York Senate on May 16 introduced a “same as” bill — meaning it echoed the language of the New York Assembly health committee’s bill — that may soon be reviewed by the Senate health committee. Both the Assembly and the Senate bills are necessary for the proposed legislation to be enacted into law in New York. New York’s proposed legislation does not specify how young minors can be to get STD vaccines without their parents’ knowledge or consent, stating only that the minor must have the “capacity to consent.”
Rising number of Americans are switching religions Nearly a quarter of Americans say they used to follow a different religious tradition or denomination than the one they practice now — a percentage that keeps growing, a new survey says. Why it matters: The jump in religion-switching comes as many Americans say they no longer believe in their initial religion’s teachings — or, in many cases, disagree with a religion’s stance against LGBTQ+ people. More Americans also are turning away from Christianity and are seeing themselves as unaffiliated with any religion or as religious “nones,” even as some conservative Republicans seek to inject more religion into schools and public life. By the numbers: The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute survey of people across the country found that a quarter of Americans (24%) say they’ve changed religious traditions or denominations over their lifetime or recently. That’s a 50% jump from 2021, when 16% said they had switched, the survey found. People who are members of other non-Christian religions (38%) or religiously unaffiliated (37%) were the most likely to say that they had switched from a different religious tradition. About one in four Protestants of color (28%), white evangelical Protestants (25%), and Hispanic Protestants (24%) say they previously practiced or followed another religious tradition.
Special Guest Allison Williams
Allison Williams worked for Marlins Live for the Miami Marlins as a sideline reporter and host for pregame and postgame shows. She previously also did reporting for the Florida Panthers on home games with play-by-play man Steve Goldstein, Color Analyst Bill Lindsay, and Sportscaster Frank Forte. In addition, Williams also did sideline reporting for telecasts on college football and basketball for ESPN. Williams has hosted shows such as Miccosukee Sports Rap, The Jason Taylor Celebrity Golf Special, Ultimate Fan Experience, and other shows.
In October 2021, Williams announced that she would depart from ESPN, citing a COVID-19 vaccination mandate and her decision not to get the vaccine.
Ex-ESPNer Allison Williams: I walked away from ‘largest contract’ of career over vaccine mandate Former ESPN reporter Allison Williams, who left the company after refusing to get vaccinated for COVID-19, said she walked away from “the largest contract in my career” over the mandate. “It was contingent on me getting an injection, which I was morally, ethically and medically opposed to,” Williams said Thursday in an appearance on SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show.” “So when it came down to it, I knew I couldn’t get it, and when they denied my request for accommodation, I was very surprised.” Williams has said she was concerned about the vaccine affecting her fertility as she tries to conceive a second child. Scientists, including the CDC, have found no link between the vaccine and fertility issues. She said that she was in the process of applying for a medical exemption with ESPN when she was told she wouldn’t be supported. Ultimately, she requested a religious exemption despite her doctor supporting her decision not to get vaccinated. “They’re essentially taking away what they believe is best for you because of the bureaucracy and the pressure that happens when you involve politics in medicine,” Williams said. “And this is a really dangerous space to occupy. And it scares me that people are not only supporting this, but encouraging it. Medical decisions need to be for individuals, not for the population en masse.”
Allison Williams sues ESPN, Disney over vaccine mandate firing Fox Sports reporter Allison Williams is one of two former ESPN employees suing the Worldwide Leader over their termination for refusing to comply with the company’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate. Williams and former producer Beth Faber filed a joint lawsuit on Wednesday, claiming ESPN and Disney violated their religious beliefs. In the 83-page complaint, filed in Connecticut, Williams claims she applied for an “exemption from vaccination on grounds of disability” as she was set to undergo in vitro fertilization. She later applied for a religious exemption, which was denied and led to her exit from the company in October 2021. “[Williams] informed Defendants in writing that she was a Christian and that her sincerely held and heartfelt religious beliefs prohibited her from being vaccinated,” the suit reads. The 38-year-old says she told an employee relations associate she had not had any vaccinations since “she got a bad reaction to one” at the age of 12, and her 2-year-old daughter was not vaccinated, either. Despite offering to test regularly and wear a mask, work remotely or in-studio, and claiming she had already had COVID-19 and “had natural immunity,” ESPN denied her exemption request and terminated her contract a week later, according to the suit. Williams claimed she opted to leave ESPN rather than comply with the vaccine mandate.
Questions of The Day!
Where can I find your protocol for your colloidal silver and aloe cleanse? What kind of probiotic does one take with this cleanse?
Hi Super Don!! 🔥 You do live dangerously if you use gmail! 😉
I recently discovered your show and you guys are now my top resource for truth and health! I love that you guys combine current events from the evil agencies, corruption in the systems, and health. We have much healing to be done on a mass scale. I was awake to the corruption, but covid blew the top of my head off in terms of awakening. So my question is about my health. I am struggling so badly I do not know where to start. I am not even sure how to pose my question. I have experienced a great deal of trauma starting in childhood. This tends to play out in your adult life if you do not heal, which it did for me. I won’t bore you with details, but suffice it to say I have had myriad of health issues including life-threatening illness twice. I had cancer as a young woman in my twenties, then in 2009 I had a bowel surgery and they punctured my bowel and I was septic, which almost killed me. While those experiences are in the past, I believe the bowel surgery altered me significantly because they assaulted me with antibiotics and a host of other drugs. I have never quite been the same interns of functionality. I have complex PTSD which reeks havoc on the system. I know the stress of the times are impacting me greatly.
Forgive me I do not know how to pose my question. My complaints are EXTREME brain fog, compromised executive function, exhaustion so bad I feel I am walking against a tornado wind and of course depression and anxiety accompany. I am going thru a full body detox (parasite, gut, liver and heavy metal) and I planned to reassess after these cleanses.
I wondered if RSB might have any suggestions based on my symptoms, and/or where I might turn for help. I WILL NOT ever ever consult with a doctor again unless they are awake. Any thoughts or insights are greatly appreciated.
I hope that was not too much.
Bless you both!
