Baseball used to be non-political but MLB made it political earlier this year when it moved the All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado when Georgia passed their voter ID law (which is similar to Colorado's law). TX also passed a voter ID law. Now MLB's biggest series would be played in two States that MLB does not like to have major events in.

From the blog article:

 

Yes, Mr. Commissioner, Georgia versus Texas. Neither state has a mask mandate.  Neither state will have people deputized to check COVID “papers.”

More on Fauci’s Beagle experiments. Warning: Graphic content. 
 

 

 

Animal cruelty is a federal felony (the law was signed in 2019).  Senators and/or representatives in office should be pushing for the arrest of Fauci and whoever else are involved in this cruel experiment. At the very least, they should be investigated and put on admin leave. And why are PETA and the Humane Society silent about this? Unless they were condemning these atrocities but the media is not talking about them.

The story is gaining quite a bit of steam. I wonder if he can survive this. He’s over 80 years old anyway. Time to retire.

Why fund the experiment? Because scared people are easier to control. Magnified fear with use of chemicals can lead to more scared sheep. I'm not saying that's the reason, but if I would like to control the population and psychology says scared people are controllable...

They already know how to scare people without injecting acid into their brains. We saw it with covid. However, that fear is not permanent, as we are now seeing. There is a certain percentage of the population that is conditioned to being told what to do by the government. There isn’t much hope for them, honestly.

The experiment is to "magnify fear". Maybe to make it more permanent and crippling too. The media is very effective in spreading the fear porn but its power will eventually wane. A biological change can be more lasting.

Gain of Function research, lying to Congress, or Beagles cruel experiment? Which one would bring Fauci down?

 

 

 

Fauci is a corrupt bureaucrat who has been in his position of power for decades. He was always in the background so he got away with many shady dealings, funding and experiments. Since 2020, he's been in the spotlight and he contradicted himself several times. After a year, he's being exposed more.

It waned a long time ago. For my job, I meet with people in their homes. All sorts of people, of all different backgrounds. You’d be surprised how many people didn’t leave their homes at all until they were able to get vaccinated. I was only able to go into their homes, because they didn’t really have a choice. Now, most of those same people don’t care. They go out without masks on, go to sporting events, etc. Those who are still terrified by covid are a very small minority. I don’t believe most of those who attack Republican Governors over it, like DeSantis, believe much of what they say. They are afraid of their party losing power.

Several legislators  from both parties are demanding answers from Fauci on the cruel puppy experiments.

 

 

 

 From the article (emphasis added):

 

Leading the effort is Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), writing a letter to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) saying the cordectomies are “cruel” and a “reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds.” 

 

"Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive," White Coat Waste told Changing America. "They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies."

 

Mace’s letter was signed by Reps. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), Cliff Bentz (R-Ore.), Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), Rick Crawford (R-Ark.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Scott Franklin (R-Fla.), Andrew Garbarino (R-N.Y.), Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.), Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Fred Keller (R-Pa.), Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Lisa McClain (R-Mich.), Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), Brian Mast (R-Fla.), Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Maria E. Salazar (R-Fla.), Terri Sewell (D-Ala.), Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.)

The proposal is targeted to billionaires but we all know it would eventually be expanded to tax more and more people including the middle class who have unrealized capital gains on their 401 K portfolios in boom years.

 

And what about unrealized capital losses, would the taxpayer get a tax refund or rebate?

 

If they go ahead with this, watch a huge capital flight and most likely stock market crashes to happen as investors move their money to more tax efficient investments.

 

Here's an idea: how about quit stealing from the people through taxes and instead create a budget based on projected revenue and trim/reduce spending to stick to the budget. There are areas where the government can reduce spending. We don't need to have 100s of billions of dollars in money-laundering "foreign aid", or billions in questionable and unethical research like gain-of-function and cruel animal experiments, for example.

I’d like to think that crazy idea isn’t going anywhere. Who in the hell is going to keep track of unrealized gains and losses of a billionaire? Or…of me or you? Every billionaire would have an auditor assigned to them, as it would be a full time job. This is probably why they want to hire thousands more IRS auditors. I think that’s in “Build Back Better.” Millions of Americans will get auto-generated letters from the IRS questioning transactions, and the burden of proof will be on them to account for them if they are over a certain dollar amount (supposedly $600). Their proposals extend well beyond “billionaires.”

There are not enough signatures on that letter.

They've been trying to tax unrealized capital gains for several years now but it didn't get past the committee because they knew it won't get past Trump. This time, the push is supported by Yellen and Biden. But I doubt it will get enough votes.

Yup, it's sad that out of 535 members of Congress, only 24 signed the letter demanding explanation from Fauci or less than 5%. I'm hoping that a couple of senators would open an investigation and get Fauci to testify in Congress about these experiments.

The Fauci-Beagles story was first reported by Breitbart on 8/11/21 and Gateway Pundit on 8/31/21. But it didn't get much coverage until now. (August 2021 was dominated by Afghanistan news).

And PETA did criticize NIH for the experiments back in August 2021. And several Republican congressmen sent a letter to Fauci --

 

In a letter sent to Fauci last week, Congressman Scott Perry and 14 colleagues cited their investigation and demanded answers about the project — including has much money has been spent to date, how many dogs have been killed, and why the NIH commissioned the deadly dog testing when the Food and Drug Administration has said it’s not required.

 

The letter was signed by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Ken Calvert (R-CA), Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Rodney Davis (R-IL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Diane Harshbarger (R-TN), Yvette Herrell (R-NM), Fred Keller (R-PA), Brian Mast (R-FL), Bill Posey (R-FL), Greg Steube (R-FL), Glenn Thompson (R-PA), Randy Weber (R-TX) and Daniel Webster (R-FL).

Here's a long thread from a Lithuanian about the Covid Pass authoritarianism that is now enslaving the citizens of Lithuania:

 

 

 

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1451714806721957891.html

 

 

 

Temporary restrictions can turn into permanent restrictions in the name of "common good". Continued compliance would only bring more restrictions and authoritarianism. Better start saying NO while you can.

 

They're now planning to vaccinate kids 5-11 years old, and Pfizer is seeking immunity from liability. For those who are now "fully vaccinated", it's just a matter of time [6 months? a year?] when they will redefine "fully vaccinated" and you'll be required to get the booster shots.
