Lead: What is Dr. Fauci Hiding? 

credit: getty

What is Dr. Anthony Fauci hiding on his personal electronic devices and his personal email? That's exactly what the  House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic would like to know. They're demanding that Dr. Fauci provide detailed information from his personal devices. 

This request follows revelations that Dr. David Morens, one of Fauci's top advisors, deliberately avoided using official channels to circumvent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Dr. Morens admitted, during testimony, to using his personal email to communicate sensitive information, which he later deleted to avoid public scrutiny. 

What are they hiding?

This behavior has certainly raised significant concerns about transparency and accountability within the National Institutes of Health. The House committee's investigation has revealed several issues, including Fauci's acknowledgment that the "6 feet apart" social distancing recommendation was not based on solid scientific evidence but rather seemed to have appeared without proper justification. Additionally, Fauci conceded that promoting vaccine mandates might increase vaccine hesitancy in the future.

​These findings are part of a broader investigation into the origins of COVID-19 and the actions of public health officials during the pandemic. The committee has already subpoenaed Dr. Morens to produce documents from his personal email accounts and is now focusing on obtaining similar information from Dr. Fauci. Will he comply? 

Hollywood Needs More Climate Alarmism

Get ready for more climate change propaganda in Hollywood films.

new study by Colby College and Good Energy researchers reviewed 250 movies from 2013 to 2022 and found that fewer than 10% mentioned climate change.

Shouldn't Hollywood focus on storytelling and entertainment rather than inserting political and environmental agendas? 

Matthew Schneider-Mayerson, the study’s lead researcher doesn't think so because after all it's 2024. He notes that movies like "Justice League" and "Marriage Story" acknowledged climate issues, but many popular films did not. This gap, he suggests, is out of touch with reality and he wants more climate alarmism. 

The researchers propose a "climate reality check," similar to the Bechdel-Wallace test for gender representation, to encourage more climate-conscious filmmaking. The idea is that if there aren't enough climate fear mongering plot points in your movie then you should try to figure out ways to incorporate them. 

For instance if you have a love story why not throw in some heat waves for dramatic effect?

Sorry Ukraine, We've Got Other Refugees To Help

Germany is kicking Ukrainian refugees out of their homes in order to make space for other illegal migrants from Africa and the Middle East.

When the war in Ukraine broke out, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians streamed into Germany, where they were welcomed with open arms, free money, and free housing. Now, Ukrainian refugees are increasingly taking a backseat to other migrants, with 1,700 told to leave their apartments in the Ore Mountains in Saxony to make room for newcomers.

The district office sent termination letters to Ukrainians occupying 650 apartments in the cities of Zschopau, Aue, and Marienberg. The letters told the tenants they would no longer have an apartment by July, which means they have just weeks to find new places to live. 

The Zelensky government is also putting pressure on European countries to expel and return fighting-age Ukrainians so they may return and fight Russia.
