Democrats have been bloviating for months now about an “insurrection” and a ‘threat to democracy’ in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. They’ve razor-wired up the Capitol and deployed tens of thousands of unsmiling National Guard troops, making the capital of the free world look more like Kinshasa, Yamoussoukro, Damascus, or Cairo. Joe Biden called it an “existential” threat to the U.S., trying to go Sartre on us. Democrat narrative-maker (and creative writing major) Ben Rhodes, according to MSNBC claimed: “The Jan 6th insurrection was a ‘terrorist attack on the heart of American democracy.’” Which presumably should have offered some pitched battles, explosions, blood in the streets, heads on pikes, mobs with torches, and lots and lots of guns, the way other people’s insurrections do. Nope, the miserable event was nothing but a pumped-up crowd upset about election fraud, with a few bounders, and a situation that got out of control with an inadequate Capitol police guard allowing, or even inviting them, to come in to the Capitol to yell about it. This occurred as Congress formalized the presidential vote for Joe Biden, in an election where all signs point to a lot of ballot fraud.
President Joe Biden is proposing a multitrillion-dollar infrastructure plan that would increase taxes on corporations to pay for roads, bridges and investments focused on mitigating climate change. The infrastructure bill’s tax provisions will be Democrats’ first full-scale legislative attack on a Republican tax law they’ve reviled since 2017. But Biden’s corporate tax proposals unveiled Wednesday represent just a fraction of the various tax hikes Democrats have talked about adding to the infrastructure bill. And there’s even a faction of moderates pushing a tax cut for some wealthy households as part of the package. In other words, Democrats are going to have a big family conversation about taxes. It might even get ugly. The White House on Wednesday outlined a Made in America Tax Plan to accompany the first part of the president’s infrastructure proposal, offsetting $2 trillion in spending over 15 years. The plan includes a host of corporate tax changes, mostly modifying elements of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that Republicans passed in 2017.
A new report from Dr. Li-Meng Yan gives further credence to the oft-dismissed “lab theory” and goes further by asserting the virus is an “Unrestricted Bioweapon.” The March 31st report can be read, in full, below. Dr. Yan et al claim: A massive misinformation campaign has been undertaken by the CCP government to cover up the true origin of SARS-CoV-2, which involved destroying data and samples, publishing fabricated viruses on top scientific journals, controlling the narrative of the origin debate through bribed top scientists and organizations, amplifying the falsified natural origin theory through media control, labeling all other origin theories as “conspiracy theories”, and defaming individuals who reveal the truth of SARS-CoV-2. As a result of the CCP’s efforts here, the true, weaponized nature of SARS-CoV-2 has been obscured and was not known by most of the public. The report notes that the “defamation” against two previous studies undertaken by Dr. Yan and her team were a part of the same “disinformation” campaign.
A new influenza vaccine manufacturing facility to be build in Toronto funded by the governments of Canada and Ontario was announced this morning by members of the Trudeau cabinet and Ontario Premier Doug Ford. The federal government of Canada has partnered with the global pharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur LTD. to build said manufacturing plant. “This is a critical investment as it will create 300 high quality jobs and push Ontario toward becoming less reliant on others for the production of flu and potentially other vaccines,” said Premier Ford in a statement. “By supporting companies like Sanofi we will continue to strengthen our excellent pharmaceutical sector and ensure we are prepared for future public health events with Made in Ontario products.” The Canadian federal government will be investing $415 million, while Ontario’s government will contribute an additional $55 million. Sanofi is investing $455 million in the project, which will create 1,225 skilled jobs for Canada. Sanofi will also be investing at least $79 million per year to fund research and development in Canada.
Conservative Shadow Minister Pierre Poilievre pressed Liberal House Leader Pablo Rodriguez on Tuesday, highlighting the major coincidence between the time that WE Charity started spending federal cash and a conversation with Trudeau’s advisor Rick Theis. Theis serves as Trudeau’s Director of Policy and Cabinet Affairs. “What a coinky-dink,” said Poilievre to Rodriguez. “Is that what it is? A coincidence, that the same day the prime minister’s advisor spoke to the WE Organization, they started spending money?” asked Poilievre. “To be clear, you say the PMO had nothing to do with giving this money over. On May 5, Rick Theis, top advisor to Trudeau, talks to the WE organization and on May 5, without even a contract being signed, the WE organization starts spending a half billion dollar government grand. big coincidence, right?” WE did not sign a contract with the government for the half-billion grant until June 23.

New Yorkers over the age of 21 can now possess and use marijuana — even in public — under a legalization bill signed Wednesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, though legal sales of recreational cannabis won’t start for an estimated 18 months. Passed after several years of stalled efforts, the measure makes New York the 16th state to legalize use of the drug. New York becomes the second-most populous state, after California, to legalize recreational marijuana. “By placing community reinvestment, social equity, and justice front and center, this law is the new gold standard for reform efforts nationwide,” Melissa Moore, New York state director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said. The legislation also prohibits police from using the odor of cannabis as a reason for searching someone’s car for contraband. New York will start automatically expunging some past marijuana-related convictions, and people won’t be arrested or prosecuted for possession of pot up to 3 ounces.
