Epoch Times | Sept 11, 2023

Despite all the “victory laps” Biden administration officials have taken as they brag that their unlawful policies and processing programs have reduced illegal immigration, recent border data show the opposite.

On top of that, there is an undeniable link between the increase in illegal entrants being welcomed into the country and an increase in violent crime, which is posing a significant threat to public safety.

Major whoops: JAMA paper shows the COVID vaccines didn’t help the elderly at all

The paper Infections, Hospitalizations, and Deaths Among US Nursing Home Residents With vs Without a SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Booster was published to show that the COVID boosters reduce your risk of death from COVID.

But if you are a critical thinker, you see that the “death benefit” simply does not exist.

So the attempt to show that the COVID boosters have a death benefit was an epic fail.

Critical thinkers realize five things about this paper:

  1. If the vaccine worked, the IFR for those getting the booster would be lower, not higher.

  2. If the vaccine worked to prevent death, the IFR for those getting the booster should begin to start diverging after a couple of weeks. The curves for the unboosted shouldn’t diverge!

  3. You should always be suspicious when there is no data sharing of de-identified aggregate data.

  4. You should always be suspicious when they don’t show you the all-cause mortality (ACM) of the treatment group.

  5. You should always wonder why they don’t show you the IFR of each cohort starting on day 0.

Estimated Vaccine Effectiveness at 12 Weeks Among Nursing Home Residents Who Did vs Did Not Receive a Booster Dosea

Check this out. The IFR for the unboosted in System 2 is 2.4/171.2=.014 whereas the IFR for the boosted is 1.3/72.5=.018.

The IFR for the boosted is 28% higher than the unboosted. In other words, in System 2, the vaccine made you more susceptible to die from COVID based on this data. It’s now out in the open and you can’t unring that bell. But the paper never pointed this out for some reason!

In System 1, however, the vaccine “appeared” to work. But did it really work? Look at Figure 1 in the paper (showing infections on top and deaths below) and you’ll see the benefit was a mirage.

Figure 1 from the paper shows that in System 1, the unboosted were IMMEDIATELY worse off than the boosted. That’s not how it works. The yellow lines for System 1 were supposed to track each other and then diverge gradually as the vaccine starts to work its “magic.” Why can’t we see the data from Day 0? And why hasn’t the data on a nursing home basis been made available ?

The unboosted group of System 1 (yellow dashed line) is clearly an outlier; it looks nothing like the unboosted group of System 2 (blue dashed line). The unboosted groups track each other for days 7 to 14, then mysteriously diverge on Day 14. WTF is that about? The unboosted groups should track each other if these are large, diverse populations. So we have a problem.

Also, note that the endpoints in Fig 1 (right side of graph) do not match the numbers in Figure 1, e.g., 11.3, 160, 171. That has to be troubling for any critical thinker that the graphs don’t match the tables.

If the vaccine really worked, the boosted and unboosted should track at the start in terms of slope and the boosted (solid line) should then diverge out where the slope is lower after around 2 weeks. There is no sign of this whatsoever in either boosted group. The System 2 line flattens out on day 35, but that’s most likely due to a non-lethal variant (Omicron) so we aren’t getting any data points to be able to compute a slope… we simply run out of deaths because COVID is such a non-problem at that point.

The COVID vaccines have been a massive fraud. They don’t help the elderly at all. This JAMA paper is evidence of that. There is no sign of a benefit because the slopes never decreased after the vaccines had a chance to “kick in” (Figure 1C solid lines).

But it does require some critical thinking skills to realize this. These skills seem to be in short supply nowadays.

It is also troubling that the data from day 0 is not available and that they are not publicly releasing the data. There is no reason for this if there is nothing to hide.


Republicans call out Biden’s liberal “work-from-home” arrangements, demands feds sell unused space to pay for ballooning national debt –

Republicans call out Biden’s liberal “work-from-home” arrangements, demands feds sell unused space to pay for ballooning national debt

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported that more than 75 percent of the available office space at 17 different federal agencies is still empty, as most employees are taking advantage of the liberal working arrangements and work-from-home policies of President Joe Biden’s administration.

Moreover, damning reports reveal these employees have been in meetings while taking bubble baths, still got paid while on the golf course, and sign off early for happy hour at the same time the backlog of passports continues and veterans have to wait months for appointments with their doctors.

Republicans are now calling out these “privileged workers” and the billions of taxpayer dollars being spent amid the soaring government budget deficit. They say it is time to return to offices, otherwise, sell these spaces. Agencies reportedly spend about $2 billion a year to operate and maintain federal office buildings and over $5 billion annually in leases. Republican senator from Iowa, Joni Ernst, told the DailyMail that the president should conduct a ‘clearance sale on unused office space.’ This could help pay off the $32.9 trillion in U.S. national debt, she pointed out.

An Atlanta-based employee from the Department of Veterans Affairs posted a series of Instagram stories from March from the bathtub with the caption: “My office for the next hour.” The social media post showed a government-issued computer propped up on a stand opened to a staff meeting with the employee’s bare legs soaking in the tub filled with bubbles.


“Many civil servants, like meat inspectors or airport security screeners, do not have the luxury of working from home, much less a bubble bath,” the senator said, recommending a reevaluation of the government agency’s mission.

Last week, the solon wrote to inspector generals of different agencies to share her concerns about their misuse of taxpayer funds. She suggested the downsizing of space at agencies would help cut down on waste. In particular, reducing office space at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) headquarters alone would save $30 million taxpayer dollars per year. She even raised a concern about one USPTO patent examiner who never reported to work but earned “$25,000 for 730 hours not worked” while he was golfing and engaging in other activities.

White House chief of staff orders return to office come fall

The White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients issued a directive ordering all federal employees to return to the office by the end of November after years of working remotely. Some staffers have reportedly complained and resisted the order. “We are returning to in-person work because it is critical to the well-being of our teams and will enable us to deliver better results for the American people,” Zients said in a letter to all Cabinet heads.

He added: “As we look towards the fall, and with the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency, your agencies will be implementing increases in the amount of in-person work for your team. This is a priority of the President – and I am looking to each of you to aggressively execute this shift in September and October.” However, the changes, according to Zients, will not eliminate working remotely but rather combine that flexibility “while ensuring we have the in-person time we need to build a strong culture, trust, and interpersonal connections.”

The Biden administration officially ended the COVID-19 emergency in May and the political pressure on the White House to curb remote work has included demands from Republicans in Congress, who have blamed telework for delays and backlogs in agencies’ work.

“It’s unacceptable that the Biden Administration has continued pandemic-era telework policies when the pandemic has been over for some time,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said, citing reports that just a third of federal employees are back in the office since the start of the pandemic. Last week, Comer together with Reps. Pete Sessions and Lauren Boebert, wrote to Biden demanding to know if telework policies led to decreased productivity and precisely how many federal employees continue to work from home three years after the start of the pandemic. According to them, the administration has so far refused to provide them with the information.

“One of two options is currently playing out: either federal agencies are withholding information from Congress or federal agencies are not tracking telework and remote work policies as required by the law. Both possibilities are deeply concerning,” the congressmen revealed, adding that they would implement compulsory measures, like subpoenas, if the administration continues to stonewall them.

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson also sent out letters on the liberal remote working arrangements in 2021. According to the lawmaker, with few exceptions, 34 federal agencies ignored his requests to provide the number of employees teleworking. “The Biden Administration’s grossly inadequate responses to even the most basic, legitimate oversight questions highlights this administration’s lack of transparency and apparent disdain for Congressional oversight,” Johnson continued.

In February, the House passed the SHOWUP Act, which seeks to restore pre-pandemic telework levels while in the Senate, Sen. Marsha Blackburn introduced a companion bill to the SHOWUP Act.

Zelensky’s billionaire backer jailed, now facing $13.5 million in fraud and money laundering charges –

Zelensky’s billionaire backer jailed, now facing $13.5 million in fraud and money laundering charges

One of Ukraine’s top five richest citizens, who is behind President Volodymyr Zelensky’s rise to fame and power was arrested recently by the nation’s authorities on an array of fraud and money laundering charges, a statement from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) indicated.

Amid Zelensky’s drive to take down deeply rooted corruption in his government, his top supporter Ihor Kolomoyskyi referred to as the “de facto owner of a large financial and industrial group,” has been slapped with allegations of siphoning off over 500 million Ukrainian hryvnias ($13.5 million) by “transferring it abroad while using the infrastructure of banking institutions controlled by him.” Kolomoyskyi was ordered by a Kyiv court to undergo pretrial detention for two months amid an ongoing investigation, with bail having been set at $14 million.

The New York Times, which covered Kolomoyskyi’s September 5 arrest, pointed out that the investor was an early major backer of the Ukrainian president. He had a hand in bringing him to power and was widely believed to have funded extremist private militia armies at various times.

“His business interests have included oil and banking, and he was once considered a patron of Mr. Zelensky, a former comedian whose popular shows were broadcast on Mr. Kolomoyskyi’s television channel before he successfully ran for the presidency,” the news outlet wrote, further revealing that there have been suspicions of corruption and embezzlement dogging Kolomoyskyi for several years now.

Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky faces charges related to fraud and the laundering of unlawfully acquired assets, according to reports from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).

The SBU’s findings indicate that during the period spanning 2013 to 2020, Igor Kolomoisky…

Reports detailed that in 2017, he left Ukraine for Switzerland and Israel after then-President Petro O. Poroshenko seized a bank Kolomoyskyi co-owned, accusing the billionaire of a large-scale fraud that threatened to destabilize the nation’s economy.

“Kolomoyskyi burst onto the political scene in 2014 when he was appointed governor of the southeastern Dnepropetrovsk Region following a Western-backed coup in Kyiv. A year later, however, he was dismissed from his post over a conflict with then-Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko amid a struggle for control of Ukrnafta and state-owned oil pipeline operator Ukrtransnafta,” an article on RT read. He eventually returned in 2019 when Zelensky took over the government, bringing in speculations of his close ties to the new president that would help him regain his economic and political clout.


Furthermore, Kolomoyskyi is also widely considered to have played a major role in the rise to power of Zelensky. Before launching his political campaign, Zelensky was a comedian, whose show was hosted by a Kolomoyskyi-controlled media holding. The magnate himself said he “wanted” Zelensky to become president, but denied close contacts with him. (Related: George Soros helped Zelensky become president of Ukraine through massive propaganda campaign; now he backs puppet regime he installed.)

In 2021, the U.S. State Department sanctioned both Kolomoyskyi and his family members, citing his involvement “in corrupt acts that undermined the rule of law and the Ukrainian public’s faith in their government’s democratic institutions.” In July 2022, media in Ukraine reported that he was stripped of his Ukrainian passport. However, while the news was confirmed by several officials in Kyiv, the relevant presidential decree is classified while the oligarch himself dismissed the reports as “nonsense.”

A report, meanwhile, disclosed that U.S. presidential son Hunter Biden, who sat on the board of the Burisma energy giant, also did business with Kolomoyskyi’s bank.

Ukraine’s government is drenched in corrupt bureaucratic practices

What is more interesting is this came in at the time when Zelensky just fired his own defense minister, an announcement which came the same weekend as billionaire Kolomoyskyi’s arrest. “This week, parliament will be asked to make a personnel decision … I have decided to replace the minister of defense of Ukraine. Oleksii Reznikov has gone through more than 550 days of full-scale war,” Zelensky announced earlier in September. Reznikov was at the center of an anti-graft probe into the military’s paying inflated prices for imported items, the profits of which are believed to have been pocketed by top military officials.

Ukraine is so corrupt the USA just made them fire their DEFENSE MINISTER for stealing.

All the untold thousands you’ve paid the IRS over your lifetime of hard work is equal to what they piss away on coke and whores in a night.

Moreover, the Zelensky administration is also facing a recruiting scandal, where top military recruiters were given large bribes to allow individuals to avoid conscription.

According to analysts, Ukraine is among the most corrupt societies in Europe and will continue to overcome the major hurdle in its application to join the European Union in the years to come.

Meanwhile, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) said it had frozen more than three billion hryvnia in assets in addition to nearly 1,000 properties and more than 1,600 vehicles and vessels from the former owner of lender PrivatBank. The NABU statement did not name Kolomoysky, however, it is a fact that he was a former owner of PrivatBank, which was nationalized in late 2016 as part of a clean-up of the Ukrainian banking system.

CCP TAKEOVER: Real estate mogul sold over 130,000 acres of Texas farmland to a Chinese billionaire and former PLA captain –

CCP TAKEOVER: Real estate mogul sold over 130,000 acres of Texas farmland to a Chinese billionaire and former PLA captain

Texas real estate mogul David Frankens is facing intense scrutiny for allegedly selling more than 130,000 acres of local farmland to Chinese billionaire Sun Guangxin for an estimated $110 million over a span of two years.

Sun, a former captain of the People’s Liberation Army, acquired around seven percent of all land in Val Verde County in southern Texas between 2016 and 2018 when Frankens sold him the land. The Chinese businessman has since then planned to build a 46-turbine wind farm on one 15,000-acre ranch. (Related: Michigan residents successfully block a CCP-subsidiary corporation from purchasing 80 acres of farmland.)

James King, a local realtor and landowner in the county spoke about the business practices of Frankens after other locals were puzzled how Chinese nationals acquired land in their area.

“The Chinese weren’t smart, but it’s buyer beware. That’s how Texas real estate is,” said King. He added that Frankens was even purchasing properties from other landholders in the county to sell them at a high markup to GH America, a subsidiary of Sun’s investment company the Guanghui Group. In at least one instance, Frankens even sold a parcel of land to Sun on the very same day that he acquired it.

King even stated that Frankens might have used the profits from his initial deals with GH America to purchase more land, effectively concealing his gains. A source familiar with the relationship between Frankens and Sun claimed that it was Frankens who proposed the idea of a wind farm in Val Verde County. Now, local landowners described Frankens as “treacherous.”


Frankens quickly denied the allegations, telling Forbes that he only stumbled upon his first deal with GH America by chance. He sold the property through a broker and didn’t even know who the buyer was until the contract came in. But Frankens refused to talk about the later deals and even defended Sun.

“In my dealings with [Sun], he has always done exactly what he said he would do and has shown himself to be a generous, hospitable man,” said Frankens. “I have visited the property on several occasions and have never seen any indication of any nefarious or questionable activities. I consider him a friend.”

Sun has close ties to the CCP

Amid the controversy of land grabbing, Sun could be considered a national security risk by authorities due to his extensive connections to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Sun’s extensive ties to the CCP have been documented in academic literature, notably in the book “Eurasian Crossings: A History of Xinjiang” by Georgetown University professor James Millward. The book details how Sun established a branch of the CCP within his own company during the 1990s. He also reportedly poached a party secretary from a state-owned firm to lead this branch.

These political connections not only facilitated Sun’s acquisition of state-owned enterprises but have also triggered warnings about his potential threat to national security, including concerns voiced by Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

The involvement of the businessman with the CCP has generated unease in Val Verde County, where locals have reacted with increasing apprehension. Kyle Bass, a Val Verde County ranch owner, described Sun’s deep ties to the CCP as “concerning” in light of his substantial land holdings in the area.

King shared the dismay of the community, saying: “It’s, you know, ‘how dare you bring this man into our neighborhood of really solid landowners who care about the land and where some families have spent six generations out here.'”

Critics argue that the project could provide Sun, and by extension China, access to the state electric grid. In response, Gov. Greg Abbott passed the Lone Star Infrastructure Act in 2021, prohibiting businesses from “hostile nations,” including China, from accessing state infrastructure.

Ukrainian armed forces failed to achieve goals in three months of counteroffensive effort, Russian defense minister reports –

Ukrainian armed forces failed to achieve goals in three months of counteroffensive effort, Russian defense minister reports

Reporting on the progress of the special military operations on Tuesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Ukrainian armed forces have failed to achieve any of their goals in three months of counteroffensive with the Eurasian nation.

“The Kyiv regime, despite their huge losses, has been trying to conduct the so-called counteroffensive for the third month already. The armed forces of Ukraine did not achieve their goals on any part of the front line,” the minister told senior defense officials. He also said that the Russian troops are active “along the entire line of contact.”

Ukraine launched a counteroffensive in June to reclaim territory seized by Russia but has struggled to break through entrenched Russian lines and has faced growing criticism in Western media for concentrating forces in the wrong places. (Related: U.S. proxy war: Kyiv’s counteroffensive kills or wounds 800 Ukrainians per day, Russia reports.)

According to the defense chief, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s troops are “desperately trying to demonstrate” at least some military success to the West. This is to make the Western allies believe that the country is still worthy of receiving heaps of artillery and economic support. “And in an attempt to hide the failure of the offensive, Ukrainian militants attack civilian targets and pass them off as military victories,” the minister said.

Shoigu also told senior defense officials during their meeting that Ukraine has lost more than 66,000 militaries and 7,600 weapons since it launched the counteroffensive. Furthermore, Moscow’s air defense systems have shot down 159 HIMARS rockets, over 1,000 unmanned aerial vehicles, and 13 cruise missiles over the past month.


“The Russian armed forces continue to destroy the military infrastructure of Ukraine with precision strikes. Over the past month alone, 34 command posts of the Ukrainian armed forces … were hit,” Shoigu added, pointing out that the Ukrainian armed forces have suffered significant losses in the Zaporizhzhia area, where the situation is the most tense.

He said that the Ukrainian armed forces brought brigades into battle from their strategic reserve, whose personnel were trained under the guidance of Western instructors. “Thanks to the selfless actions of [Russian] soldiers … significant damage was done to Ukrainian units,” Shoigu said referring to the Zaporizhzhia direction.

Assuring further obstacles in Kyiv’s counteroffensive operations, Russia’s top general reported that Russian troops are yet to receive four new Tu-160M, which is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber and airborne missile platform. This year, six modernized four-engine turbofan strategic airlifter Il-76 are also set to augment Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military.

Shoigu: NATO weapons and military standards are not really superior

Moscow’s 18-month-old war with Kyiv proved that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other Western allies’ military technology is actually not all it is chalked up to be.

“The Russian army debunked many myths about the superiority of Western military standards,” Shoigu said at a security conference attended by Chinese Defense Minister Li Shangfu earlier in August, adding that it was now obvious that NATO weaponry, modern war doctrine, and training “cannot ensure superiority on the battlefield,” per a transcript posted by Russia’s Defense Ministry.

“In many cases, even Soviet-made equipment surpasses Western models in its combat qualities,” Shoigu claimed and said that he is ready to share assessments of the weaknesses of Western technology with partners.

According to the New York Times, Ukraine lost around 20 percent of its U.S.-provided equipment in its summer counteroffensive as pointed out in July when reports showed that nearly a third of the Bradley armored vehicles sent by Washington to Kyiv have either been damaged or destroyed.

In June, Russia claimed to have shot a separate video of a Leopard tank being destroyed and in July, it said it managed to seize a downed U.K.-provided Storm Shadow missile, as its bases behind the frontlines received repeated strikes from such munitions.
