An audit has revealed a scholarship program handing out federal funds to students exhibits a bias against conservatives, and now members of Congress want an explanation from those who hand out the cash.

It involves the awards from the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation, set up some 50 years ago to give awards to students who "demonstrate outstanding potential for and who plan to pursue a career in public service."

The American Enterprise Institute reviewed the foundation and its work and then confirmed it found a "strong liberal bias at the taxpayer-funded foundation," according to a report by The Center Square posted at Just the News.

"While this role suggests these programs should include scholars who reflect a breadth of views, values, and interests, their participants instead display a stark ideological tilt," the AEI report declared.

It is foundation chief Terry Babcock-Lumish who now is expected to provide answers, and lawmakers have suggested they could revoke the appropriations for the scheme that now "favors liberally leaning students over conservatives by a ratio of 10 to 1."

A letter from members of Congress pointed out, "Between 2021 and 2023, the Truman Foundation selected 182 Truman winners. Yet, despite the Truman Foundation’s claims that it 'supports scholars from a wide range of perspectives, interests, and geographic areas,' just six recipients espoused interest in a cause traditionally considered conservative-leaning.

"Not a single winner professed interest in causes such as protecting the rights of the unborn or defending the Second Amendment. By contrast, the foundation selected at least 74 winners professing interest in a progressive cause," the letter charged.

The members, including Rep. Virginia Foxx of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, Rep. Robert Aderholt of the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Rep. Burgess Owens of the Subcommittee on Higher Education, said, "As a publicly funded award charged with preparing the civic leaders of tomorrow, the Truman Scholarship should, at a bare minimum, be reflective of the country’s breadth of values, viewpoints, and interests. The Truman Foundation requested approximately $3 million in appropriations for the upcoming fiscal year. However, if the Truman Scholarship functions as a career booster solely for students of a particular political persuasion, it should no longer be worthy of congressional support, taxpayer funding, or its exalted public image."

The letter insists that an explanation be provided on measures taken "to ensure the Truman Scholarship truly 'supports scholars from a wide range of perspectives,'" there is no discrimination against conservatives and what is being done to ensure an "ideologically diverse poll of nominees."

The inflation that has hit American consumers since Joe Biden was elected has surpassed 19%, leaving households struggling to pay bills and keep food on the table in many cases.

Kamala Harris boasted about how the administration has been pushing programs that cause that inflation, citing its trillion-dollar spending packages.

Specifically, the Biden administration's success at "dropping trillions of dollars on streets of America."

But a new report, from the Wall Street Journal, reveals just how devastating Biden's agenda has proven for Americans.

During President Donald Trump's first three years in office, household net worth, adjusted for inflation, was up 16%.

For Biden, that figure is 0.7%.

Before inflation, that figure rose 23% during Trump's first three years, while it was 19% for Biden. But factoring in inflation documents how Biden's policies have damaged the nation.

"This explains why people are feeling crushed -- because they are, whether Joe Biden admits it or not. You can see it still goes up for a bit after Biden comes in, still riding off Trump's economy. But it levels out, and then takes a dive when the Bidenomics and inflation start kicking in," explained a report at RedState.

It turns out, in his way, Biden had tried to warn Americans of what was going to show up with his work on the economy.

The report noted the economy is one of the most important issues for voters during an election.

"Biden's take on the whole thing? Well, the polls are wrong and Americans just don't get it," RedState reported, "However, telling Americans they're dumb and what they feel in their wallets isn't real hasn't been a winning strategy for him so far. But Joe Biden isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the drawer."

Joe Biden's foreign policy has been, at best, suspect, experts have noted.

On his watch the Russia-Ukraine war erupted, Afghanistan has returned to a terrorist-controlled land, there have been various outbreaks of conflict across Africa and the threat from China to the free world has surged.

But his "biggest blunder," says an expert, is to be driving two nuclear powers, Russia and China, into an alliance.

Fox News report cited the comments that came from Michael Pillsbury, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, on Fox & Friends.

The comments come just as China's Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin met in Beijing to strengthen bilateral ties.

Pillsbury said such a "shocking" alignment never would have happened under a Trump administration.

"Basically… we're seeing what [former President] Trump was trying to do with China when he called himself 'Tariff Man' to get leverage over China to help us in various ways. That's simply not happening with Biden and to draw, to push together two nuclear powers, Russia and China, it's a blunder of the highest order."

He continued, "The Russians had a million army troops built up on the Chinese border for a while, so to see them come together like this to me is just shocking. It's one of the biggest blunders we'll see in my lifetime."

The report noted Putin and Xi were meeting to "strengthen bilateral relations."

He said, "This would never happen under Trump. This is a big blunder, I think, by the Biden people to drive Russia and China together. This was one of Trump's goals never to allow this to happen."

Former Trump national security aide John Ullyot also commented on the meeting.

"It's a show of force in the sense that it is… a rebuke to the West, that has… put in these sanctions," he said. "But it also is a sign that there's increasing access here between Russia and China, where… Russia has been shut off from exporting oil and natural gas to Western Europe, and so now they're having to look at other markets, and of course, the biggest market… that's a border state of theirs, and in the region in Asia it is China, so they want to strengthen that."

One growing concern because of Joe Biden's open borders policy, and the millions of illegal aliens he has allowed into the United States, is the fact that many states have systems automatically offering them the opportunity to register to vote.

And they do.

Now a stunning warning is coming out of a study that shows they're registered in numbers high enough to decide even a presidential election.

report in the Georgia Star News offers the foreboding confirmation that "a new study by Just Facts has found that about 10 percent to 27 percent of non-citizen adults in the U.S. are now illegally registered to vote."

It continued, "The U.S. Census recorded more than 19 million adult non-citizens living in the U.S. during 2022. Given their voter registration rates, this means that about two million to five million of them are illegally registered to vote. These figures are potentially high enough to overturn the will of the American people in major elections, including congressional seats and the presidency."

The report noted that as far back as 2014, an analysis found that illegal votes by non-citizens "'likely' changed 'important election outcomes' in favor of Democrats, 'including Electoral College votes' and a 'pivotal' U.S. Senate race that enabled Democrats to pass Obamacare."

Just Facts then conducted a comparable assessment from the same period, and found 16% "voted in the 2008 national elections."

Both of those assessments have margins of uncertainty that remain high because of small sample sizes and possible sources of error – including that people are self-reporting their illegal actions.

The report noted "fact checkers" dispute the concerns, offering criticisms that are "mathematically illiterate and laced with unrealistic assumptions, empty arguments, half-truths, and outright falsehoods."

Among the critics of the study results is an Old Dominion associate professor who charges that only 1% of non-citizens are registered to vote.

But those claims, research has suggested, are nothing more than "lowball estimates."

Instead, the report said, the Just Facts' latest work reveals the best registration figures document the estimate that 10% to 27% of adult non-citizens are registered to vote, and that, "In presidential elections, roughly half of non-citizens who are registered turn out to vote. Given that about 10 percent to 27 percent of them are currently registered, this means about 5 percent to 13 percent of them will illegally vote in the 2024 presidential and congressional elections."

The report said, "The U.S. Census recorded a population of 19.7 million voting-age non-citizens in the U.S. during 2022. This is an absolute minimum because the Census doesn’t count masses of non-citizens who falsely claim to be citizens or don’t fill out Census surveys. Also, the figure of 19.7 million doesn’t include multitudes of non-citizens who’ve entered since 2022. This includes people who legally immigrated, crossed the border illegally, or were allowed into the country under the Biden administration’s parole policies."

The Star report explained, "Roughly 1.0 million to 2.7 million non-citizens will illegally vote in the 2024 presidential and congressional elections unless stronger election integrity measures are implemented."

One solution is the GOP's plan to require "proof of United States citizenship" to register to vote, the report said. That effort likely is a beneficial plan, as legacy media outlets such as CNN, NBC News, NPR, and more already have "attacked the bill as unnecessary," the report said.

The results also skew in one direction.

The report said, "In the 2008 presidential election, 82 percent of non-citizens who admitted that they voted stated that they voted for Democrat Barack Obama, while only 18 percent said they voted for Republican John McCain."

Surveys show that from 2006 to 2022 73% to 82% of non-citizens supported Democratic candidates, the report said.

A Florida dentist and Islamic imam who has called for the annihilation of "the tyrannical Jews" now could be facing punishment for his vicious anti-Semitism, which he included in a recorded sermon to fellow Muslims.

"Oh Allah, annihilate them, for they are no match for you. Oh Allah, annihilate the brothers of apes and pigs," demanded Fadi Kablawi in a sermon first broadcast on Facebook, adding the current Israeli government is "worse than the Nazis."

report at Newsweek explained that Kablawi demanded death for Jews, with, "Oh Allah, annihilate the tyrannical Jews." The sermon then was translated by Shirion Collective, a pro-Israel account on X.

The report explained Kablawi is an imam at Masjid As Sunnah An Nabawiyyah.

Florida state Rep. Randy Fine, chairman of the Florida House Health and Human Services Committee, now has sent a letter to Jose R. Mellado, chairman of the Florida Board of Dentistry, calling for Kablawi's dental license to be suspended. And calling for an investigation into Kablawi's practice.

The letter from Fine includes, "North Miami, where dentist Kablawi practices, contains many Jewish residents, none of whom could be considered safe in Imam Kablawi's dental chair, where he could personally implement what he is asking Allah to do. Practicing medicine in Florida is a privilege—not a right—and as the chairman of the Florida House Health and Human Services Committee, I call on you to immediately suspend Dr. Kablawi's license and commence a thorough investigation into his practice. The lives of some of Florida's Jews could hang in the balance."

Fine noted he'd already heard from patients who were alarmed that "this guy" was their dentist.

The report noted Fine also shared an email from Mellado expressing concern about the antisemitism.

"I am deeply concerned with this inflammatory rhetoric and the potential danger it poses to Jewish and other ethnic groups. It is our utmost responsibility to protect and ensure the safety of the citizens in Florida. Please, review and act accordingly to protect the patients and the public in Florida."

Kablawi did not respond to a Newsweek request for comment.

Just days before the historic November 2016 election that, to the shock and horror of the Washington elite, made Donald Trump the 45th president of the United States and leader of the free world, the brash billionaire outsider spoke the most forbidden truth of all:

“There is nothing the political establishment will not do," he said, "and no lie they will not tell to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.”

Today, almost eight years later, as America approaches a truly life-or-death-of-the-nation election, it is beset with a raft of huge and almost surreal crises – including a full-scale foreign invasion across America’s southern border, intentionally engineered by the irredeemably malevolent Biden administration. Then there’s the unprecedented and nakedly illegal mass lawfare campaign against Donald Trump in an effort to take him out of the coming election and cast him into prison. And there’s the rampant inflation and rapidly degrading economy. And the skyrocketing violent crime in all our major cities. And the mass-hysteria transgender movement seducing countless kids into being grievously mutilated surgically for life. And most recently, there’s the explosion of anti-Semitism across the country, courtesy of rage-fueled Marxist activists who, while knowing literally nothing about anything, pretend to care about “oppressed” populations around the world.

But wait, there’s still more.

Although it has only recently become clear, another extraordinary secret revolution has been unfolding right under everyone’s noses.

Before we get there, stop and consider the bizarre reality that not only President Donald Trump, but tens of millions of decent, law-abiding, America-loving citizens who intend to vote for him this November, somehow inspire unending dread, fear and loathing throughout the Washington, D.C., ruling class. That would include not only the ever-more-deranged Democratic Party and the entire “mainstream media” (today a virtual clone of the U.S.S.R’s pretend “news” organs Pravda and Izvestia, which published only official government propaganda), but also the “Deep State” itself, the permanent federal government bureaucracy that remains – and grows ever larger, like “The Blob” in the classic horror film – regardless of which party is currently “in power.”

One key component of this gargantuan permanent bureaucracy, operating largely outside of public view, has recently been dragged into the light, exposing its hidden but central role in the censorship and silencing of all who oppose the Deep State and its increasingly totalitarian agenda. That highly influential entity, about which most people know very little, is the federal defense/foreign-policy establishment widely referred to within the Capital Beltway simply as “the Blob.”

Former Trump State Department official Mike Benz, who currently serves as executive director of the Foundation for Freedom Online, has turned whistleblower and dramatically gone public with exactly how the Western defense and foreign policy establishment has been turned against America, the Bill of Rights and democracy itself. It is a truly mind-blowing story.

This massive bureaucracy headed up by the Central Intelligence Agency, explains Benz, literally funded and developed the amazing technology years ago that enabled internet free speech, then encouraged dissident groups worldwide to use that new free-speech capability to organize and network with other patriots and help them overthrow oppressive regimes. So far, so good.

Yet incredibly, says Benz, the CIA has in more recent times turned against the concept of free speech – at least, when it comes to what it considers dangerous and subversive groups within America. Some of the most “dangerous” populations include conservatives, Republicans, constitutionalists, “MAGA” Trump supporters and politically active Christians.

One of the chief pretexts for this suppression of domestic speech has been the claim that supposedly subversive domestic groups and individuals were spreading “Russian disinformation,” which of course was a key focal point for the years-long near-destruction of Donald Trump’s presidency. As it turned out, of course, the claim that Trump “colluded with the Russians” was not only definitively proven to be entirely false; it was created (and the damning “Trump dossier” actually paid for) by the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, who actually did collude big-time with the Russians. Nevertheless, the claim that Donald Trump somehow had been ushered into the presidency by Russia – and the corollary accusation that virtually anyone defending Trump was a “Putin ally” – not only defamed, but destroyed, good people for years.

Not just ‘Putin allies,’ but ‘domestic terrorists’ too

Normal Americans have long wondered how and why law-abiding citizens – including, for example, parents who would stand up and speak their minds at school board meetings to complain about teachers indoctrinating their children with Marxist propaganda – could possibly be maligned by the Biden administration as “violent extremists” and possible “domestic terrorists.” (Yes, that actually happened.)

A previously hidden dimension to this surreal spectacle of branding regular Americans as “terrorists” has now emerged, and it has to do with “the Blob.”

As previously noted, the vast foreign-policy establishment (Pentagon, CIA, State Department, etc.) seemingly was on the right track when promoting internet free speech to democratic resistance movements in other countries – perhaps the most memorable example being the “Arab Spring” in 2010-2012. Dissident groups were aided in throwing off tyrannical regimes by being enabled to communicate, strategize and organize via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Literally, internet free speech was helping freedom-loving peoples around the world throw off oppressive ruling regimes.

Sounds good, but even that didn’t always work out so well. William J. Burns, the current CIA director since 2021, took the time in 2020, when he was out of government, to write an article for The Atlantic headlined “The Blob Meets the Heartland,” in which he expressed some doubts and misgivings about what the agency had been doing:

For most of my three and a half decades as an American diplomat, the foreign-policy establishment (known unaffectionately in some quarters as “the blob”) took for granted that expansive U.S. leadership abroad would deliver peace and prosperity at home. That assumption was lazy, and often flawed.

Riding the waves of globalization and American geopolitical dominance, we overreached. We deluded ourselves with magical thinking about our capacity to remake other societies, while neglecting the urgent need to remake our own. Unsurprisingly, the disconnect widened between the Washington policy establishment and the citizens it is meant to serve.

Ironically, in light of Burns’ comment about “the citizens” whom the Washington policy establishment “is meant to serve,” it turns out that permanent Washington’s stateside activities took a pretty dark turn shortly before Donald Trump became president.

The Blob, which up until 2014 or 2015 had been targeting ISIS and other actual terror groups in foreign nations by facilitating the free speech and activism of freedom-loving dissident groups, somehow determined that within America itself, certain groups of people and certain ideas and speech – including being considered a conduit for “Russian disinformation” – were dangerous and needed to be suppressed, censored and thereby defeated.

So, when leftist elites today malign and degrade conservatives, Christians, Republicans, pro-lifers and MAGA folks as “violent extremists,” “domestic terrorists” or – as Biden called Trump and his supporters in a major speech, “semi-fascists” – this is not simply hyper-partisan election-year name-calling. Somehow, thoroughly decent and law-abiding American citizens, if they oppose the narratives and agendas of the Deep State, are now apparently regarded as the newest ISIS-type threat needing to be suppressed.

How can that possibly be? How can good people ridiculously be likened to “domestic terrorists”? What’s really behind the official government obsession with targeting for censorship large swaths of political and cultural views they label “misinformation,” “disinformation” and an Orwellian term that never before existed – “malinformation,” defined as truth that nevertheless causes harm?

It’s all because, according to the permanent government in Washington, all of this “mis-,” “dis-” and “mal”-information represents a huge threat to … “DEMOCRACY.”

But wait, rational people will respond: Democracy simply means the will of the people. The Oxford Dictionary defines democracy as “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.” In fact, the word democracy itself derives from the Greek words “demos,” meaning people, and “kratos,” meaning power. Democracy is, and always has been, a system wherein the governing power depends on the will of the common people – which is precisely how Americans have always understood the term.

However, in today’s “1984”-style world where, as George Orwell wrote, “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” “Ignorance is strength” and everything means its opposite, “democracy” today has been given an entirely new and precisely opposite definition.

What the Deep State has determined, Benz explained to Tucker Carlson during their epic hour-long February interview on X, is that “preserving democracy” no longer has anything at all to do with enabling and honoring the will of America’s citizens/voters. Rather, it is all about preserving the sanctity of so-called “democratic institutions.”

“And who are the democratic institutions?” Benz asks rhetorically. “Oh, ‘it's us’! It's the military, it's NATO, it's the IMF and the World Bank. It's the mainstream media, it is the NGOs [non-governmental organizations]. And of course, these NGOs are largely State Department-funded or CIA-funded. It's essentially all of the elite establishments” that have felt threatened by “the rise of domestic populism,” Benz explained, and who have “declared their own consensus to be the new definition of democracy.”

So, “democracy,” concludes the State Department whistleblower, now consists of “getting the NGOs to agree with BlackRock, to agree with the Wall Street Journal, to agree with the community and activist groups who are onboarded with respect to a particular initiative. That is the difficult vote-building process.”

In light of this new official (but of course, unspoken) definition of democracy – which has literally nothing to do with the will of the people – it finally becomes clear what politicians from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to Chuck Schumer and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez really mean when they continually warn that Donald Trump and his tens of millions of law-abiding, taxpaying, America-loving supporters somehow “threaten our democracy.”

The key word is “our.”

In reality, of course, they loathe true democracy, the idea that “the rabble” might choose their own king, so to speak. In fact, a shocking new Rasmussen survey shows that when polled, more than two-thirds of America’s wealthiest and most politically engaged elites – 69% of them – admitted they would be willing to win an election by cheating. That kind of attitude and willingness to literally lie, cheat and steal one’s way into gaining and holding power, helps explain not only the entire “Trump-Russia collusion” hoax, which became a Deep State pretext for censoring all of Trump’s supporters, but also the continual and ever-expanding persecution and mass lawfare campaign directed at Donald Trump himself.

The Washington establishment being described here, which as Trump boldly proclaimed shortly before the 2016 election, will do literally anything “to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense,” obviously has nothing but contempt for actual democracy. Rather, these people openly champion political corruption, censorship, oppression, persecution and an utterly undemocratic ruling system – as long as it’s run by them.

Was it a miracle from God?

A stunning video out of North Braddock, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, shows the moment a gunman aimed his weapon at a Christian pastor but was unable to fire.

The trigger was pulled, but the handgun jammed and no shot was fired.

"I was like, this is not happening," Pastor Glenn Germany of Jesus' Dwelling Place Church told KDKA.

"I thank God because only God stopped and jammed this gun."

"I'm thankful to God that I'm still here because he pulled the trigger," Germany told WTAE.

The pastor immediately ducked behind his podium, and that's when Clarence McCallister, a deacon at the church, jumped up to tackle the gunman.

"There's something that needs to be done and I jumped up and handled my business," McCallister told KDKA.

"He could have lost his life in that struggle," Germany said of McCallister. "But he sacrificed himself for everyone, and he's the hero."

Pennsylvania State Police are now charging 26-year-old Bernard Polite of Braddock with multiple counts, including attempted homicide and aggravated assault.

Court papers claim Polite confessed that "God told him to do it," according to 6abc in Philadelphia.

Pastor Germany spoke to Polite while he was in custody.

"This guy was just dealing with spirits he said, and he came in and wanted to shoot somebody," Germany told KDKA, adding Polite said there were voices in his head.

In a gruesome twist, police say after arresting Polite, they discovered a man shot to death inside Polite's home Sunday night.

WTAE reports: "Early Monday morning, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office identified the man found shot to death in that home as Derek Polite, 56, of North Braddock, a relative of Bernard Polite."

"Nothing bad has ever happened in that home. There was no domestic violence, no fights, no argument that we know of that we could ever have heard," neighbor Guy Diperna said.

New polling reveals some startling American voter perspectives on the media, and it explains why the Biden administration has been so intent on censoring social media.

It was a congressional report just this week that confirmed social media companies had tried to defend the First Amendment against attacks by Biden's bureaucrats – mostly unsuccessfully as White House demands for censorship have turned into a major component of most online platforms.

Now there's an explanation for why Biden's advocates are so intent.

It's because the polling shows about half of Americans rely on social media as their primary source of news.

Constitutional expert Jonathan Turley explained that’s why "it is not surprising that the censorship of social media has been a priority among many liberal groups."

He explained, "The effort is to eliminate sources of information and regulate what citizens see and read."

He pointed out that the polling, from the American Press Institute and The Associated Press-NORC Center, revealed that a majority of Americans also are extremely worried or very concerned about bias in the media and the reporting of false or misleading information.

"Only 48% of Republicans and 34% of independents still receive their news from national news outlets and expressed the greatest trust of the media," Turley explained, citing the poll results.

"The poll shows that 47% of Americans have a serious concern that news outlets would report information that has not been confirmed or verified, and 44% worry that accurate information will be presented in a way that favors one side or another."

Turley explained:

For years, the journalists have sawed on the branch upon which they are sitting. Even National Public Radio, which receives federal funding, is unrepentant in the face of criticism over its overt political bias.

Former New York Times writer (and now Howard University journalism professor) Nikole Hannah-Jones declared recently that “all journalism is activism.” Advocacy journalism is all the rage in journalism schools and on major media platforms.

A recent series of interviews with over 75 media leaders by Leonard Downie Jr., former Washington Post executive editor, and Andrew Heyward, former CBS News president, reaffirmed this shift. As Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, editor-in-chief at the San Francisco Chronicle, stated: “Objectivity has got to go.”

But that objective seems to depend heavily upon what ideology you are advocating.

He said nowadays the mainstream media talks to itself.

"So we are left with the variation of a common Zen-like question: if the media reports and no one is listening, does it still make a noise?" he asked.

The actual polling report explained, "Although most adults, regardless of age, race or ethnicity, or partisanship, tune into news about elections, only 14% express a great deal of confidence in election-related information they receive from national sources, and 11% say the same about local news media.

"In particular, people are worried about the news containing misinformation and amplifying divisions. About half of adults say they are extremely or very concerned about news organizations reporting inaccurate information (53%). Almost as many worry news outlets will report unverified information (47%) or focus too much on divisions or controversies (48%)."

A new report from the Epoch Times reveals its investigation shows that the CDC knew of the links between the COVID shots and death – and lied about them.

The report explains officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "found evidence that the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines caused multiple deaths before claiming that there was no evidence linking the vaccines to any deaths."

It was CDC employees who tracked down reports of deaths post-vaccination "and learned that myocarditis—or heart inflammation, a confirmed side effect of the vaccines—was listed on death certificates and in autopsies for some of the deaths."

That is confirmed, the report said, in an internal file the publication obtained.

The Times explained "Myocarditis was also described as being caused by vaccination in a subset of the deaths. In other cases, the CDC workers found that deaths met the agency’s definition of myocarditis, that the patients started showing symptoms within 42 days of a vaccine dose, and that the deceased displayed no virus-related symptoms. Officials say that after 42 days, a possible link between the vaccine and symptoms becomes tenuous, and they list post-vaccination deaths as unrelated if they can find any possible alternative causes."

But the report noted Dr. Clare Craig, a British pathologist, said in cases with the three features, it is safe to say the vaccines caused death.

However, while the findings were determined by the end of 2021, the CDC in subsequent claims alleged it saw no signs linking the RNA and mRNA shots to deaths "reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System."

Further, the CDC claimed in a letter to the Times in 2023 that there were "no deaths reported to the VAERS for which the agency determined 'the available evidence' indicated Moderna or Pfizer vaccination 'caused or contributed to the deaths.'"

The Times reported Dr. Andrew Bostom, accused the CDC of "concealing" deaths.

"That’s a scandal, where you have information like this and you continue to put out this dishonest line that there’s only seven deaths and they’re all unrelated to the mRNA vaccines."

The CDC had confirmed seven deaths from thrombosis suggesting a link to the Johnson & Johnson shots.

A CDC spokesman responded to the evidence with a comment that a cause of death is done "by the certifying official, physician, medical examiner, or coroner," but declined to explain why the CDC doesn't consider autopsies or death certificates as evidence of the cause of death.

Or what evidence is used to establish vaccine-caused deaths?

The report pointed out what has been stunning to some: in the U.S., people who die with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases are counted as COVID-19 deaths, including those who died from unrelated causes, and when the deaths happened years after the infection.

Craig charged, "They are taking the exact opposite approach to COVID deaths! Every death after a test was a COVID death. No death after a vaccine is a vaccine death!"

The Times said it obtained the inside-the-CDC details from a file obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. It outlines "the agency’s investigation into reports submitted to VAERS of suspected cases of myocarditis or a related condition, pericarditis, following COVID-19 vaccination."

The CDC reported it sent employees original medical records, death certificates, and more, eventually looking at 3,780 reports. Among those situations, 101 people died.

"In one instance, a 37-year-old man started suffering symptoms that can be caused by myocarditis, such as shortness of breath, shortly after receiving a Moderna COVID-19 shot. The man collapsed three days after vaccination and was soon pronounced dead," the report cited.

The CDC's report said one cause of death was "acute myocarditis" but said "other findings" mean it cannot be said only the vaccine caused the death.

Multiple other documents cited COVID-19 shots and their "complications."

The report said Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson did not return requests for comment.

The report notes that in some cases, the CDC intervened to overrule a cause of death determination, with instructions including a review of the CDC's Infectious Diseases Pathology Branch which said, "Per IDPB evaluation, not myocarditis."

The agency also insisted that two teens who were victims died because of "parvovirus" and "sepsis," not the shots.

Ray Flores, a lawyer representing one victim's family in a lawsuit over a death, charged that the CDC's dissembling resulted from it being "the leader[] of the disinformation campaign to convince the American public … that experimental vaccines were safe and effective even before they were licensed."

"Now everyone knows they’ve unequivocally been shown to kill," he told the Times.

More than 676 million shots have been delivered so far, and while Johnson & Johnson was pulled from the market, the CDC maintains Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax products are "safe and effective."

A member of Congress is demanding answers from Joe Biden's attorney general – and the district attorney in New York – about the handling of their portion of Democrats' lawfare against President Trump, requiring them to answer a list of questions about the hiring of a Biden-linked lawyer to prosecute Trump for a list of ancient misdemeanors.

The letter to Merrick Garland and Alvin Bragg is from U.S. Rep. Lance Gooden, R- Texas, and demands they turn over evidence about Bragg's hiring of Matthew Colangelo, who is an ex-Biden pick for the Department of Justice.

The congressman warns there needs to be transparency because of the "disturbing revelations about the politically motivated prosecution" of Trump.

The congressman notes Colangelo "abruptly" left a top position at the DOJ to take a city job in New York, and work on the case, now at trial, that was "crafted to target President Trump."

The case, alleging Trump violated business reporting requirements in an alleged "hush money" payoff to a former stripper, is at trial right now. It already has been described by experts as nothing more than a political attack on Trump, as the alleged offenses were misdemeanors for which the statute of limitations has expired. The incidents that Bragg claims were intended to interfere with the 2016 election happened in 2017, after the election.

Gooden is demanding to know whether Colangelo was asked to leave the DOJ, "instructed" to leave," and if so, "what was he promised in return for accepting such a substantial demotion."

Gooden wrote, "The politicized persecution of former President Trump and the collusion between the Biden administration's Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Manhattan District Attorney (DA) General's Office have raised several concerns among the public. Particularly, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg brought charges against President Trump to trial in the middle of an election year, eight years after the alleged incident, which indicates a coordinated effort to target his campaign."

Then on top of that was the hiring of Colangelo, whose links to Biden include his appointment by Biden to a senior position at DOJ.

The congressman pointed out "These serious underlying issues substantially overshadow the integrity and fairness of the trial."

Further, the judge issued a radical gag order against Trump, preventing him from raising concerns about "prosecutors" and others.

Gooden wants access to "all records and communications in relation" to the process through which Colangelo moved from the DOJ to Bragg's office.

"The Department of Justice under President Biden has proven to be a cesspool of partisanship, further evident by the hyper-politicized courts that have taken up President Trump's criminal trials," he said, charging the hiring of Colangelo 'is yet another example of the unconstitutional approach" to Trump.

A report at The Gateway Pundit described Garland as "crooked" and charged that Bragg is "Soros-funded."

"Goodman calls the hiring of Colangelo 'a declaration of war against the American judicial system,'" the report said.

The House Judiciary Committee earlier demanded some of the information about Bragg's hiring of Colangelo.
