# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
Dr. Peter Hotez Is Consistently Wrong and Dangerous: Dr. Peter Hotez’s battle against the ‘anti-science confederacy’ is a lifetime in the making. Academics usually speak in nuanced shades of gray, but Hotez called, full-throated, for measures that would cut the COVID death rate.

# Economy / Finance / Trade
Recession denial by White House and Federal Reserve will plunge America into stagflation: This inflationary period has been caused by excessive money printing at the hands of the Fed and substantial government spending throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, rather than any sort of natural phenomenon. So, because Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell does not personally believe the numbers right before his eyes, the U.S. central bank has continued down the path of dropping napalm on economic production. I am reminded of George Orwell’s 1984, “The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”

5 misunderstandings of pregnancy biology that cloud the abortion debate. The U.S. Supreme Court’s scrapping of Roe v. Wade leaves abortion laws up to the states: The standard pregnancy clock actually starts ticking before a sperm cell encounters an egg, two weeks before, on average.

(Day 1 is the first day of menstruation; day 1 is also when a pregnancy officially begins in the month an egg is fertilized.) That means that when a sperm fertilizes an egg, a person is already officially two weeks pregnant. As nonsensical as that sounds, it’s the simplest way medical professionals can date a pregnancy.

# Gov / Politics / US
The Good, the Bad, and the Omitted in the Electoral Count Act: The bill introduced yesterday fixes many problems, but doesn’t really safeguard Americans’ right to vote.

Former President Donald Trump went on a massive tirade late Thursday night after the House select committee on the Jan 6th riot concluded their latest public hearing, with Trump ending his night by trashing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a “disloyal sleaze bag!”

Why won’t Republicans investigate white supremacists in uniform? We know why, every House Republican, including Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, voted to ignore far-right extremists in uniform. The current Republican Party and the larger white right have been willing to amplify such voices, bringing them into the highest levels of government and power and, through “narrative laundering,” into the mainstream of American society and politics. Trumpism and American neofascism are at once a reflection, a cause and a symptom of growing racial authoritarianism and outright white supremacy, both in the United States and around the world.

Trump’s inner circle is secretly making plans to fire thousands government employees if he wins in 2024, report says. The plan would be to replace them with people loyal to Trump, the report said.

Austin City Council approves resolution to decriminalize abortion: The Austin City Council approved legislation on Thursday aimed at protecting abortion rights, even as the state of Texas moves to make it tougher to get the procedure.

‘He chose not to act’: Jan. 6 panel details Trump’s actions during Capitol riot: Lawmakers on Thursday broke down the former president’s 187 minutes of inaction as a riot engulfed the Capitol, promising more hearings on the way.

“Donald Trump ignored and disregarded the desperate pleas of his own family, including Ivanka and Don Jr. He could not be moved.” “There can be no doubt that there was a coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn an election overseen and directed by Donald Trump.” January 6 Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.)

When Trump Finally Told His Mob to Go Home: It was only when it became clear that the January 6th coup wouldn’t succeed that Trump told his insurrectionists to stand down.

Secret Service erased text messages sent before and during the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Secret Service text messages from around the time of the attack on the U.S. Capitol were deleted despite requests from Congress and federal investigators that they be preserved, the agency confirmed in response to a subpoena from the House Jan. 6 committee.

Why Donald Trump can’t be prosecuted for ‘dereliction of duty’ for his inaction on Jan. 6: With the exception of a few states, dereliction of a duty is mostly used in military law and does not apply to citizens, including US presidents.

Bannon trial live updates: Bannon chose ‘allegiance’ to Trump, prosecutor says: The defendant chose allegiance to Donald Trump over compliance with the law,” Gaston said. “He has contempt for our system of government and he does not think he needs to play by its rules,” she added.

Birth-Control Access Bill Passed by House: Contraception legislation follows effort to protect same-sex and interracial marriage

‘We are bearing witness’: Reproductive-health researchers are scrambling to track the effects of the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the federally protected right to an abortion. Recent studies have shown that:
* Maternal deaths could rise by an estimated 29% in some of the states expected to ban the procedure
* Pregnant people who visited two hospitals in Texas — where there are strict laws against abortion — with potentially deadly complications were significantly more likely to experience serious effects than people in states who could choose termination

Weather as a Force Multiplier, Owning the Weather in 2025: The report starts out stating, “The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives.” The full report lists a wide variety of weather modification and weather weapon capabilities. As the report has disappeared from the USAF website, you can find a copy here.

HAARP: Weather Control: Is the HAARP Project a Weather Control Weapon? “It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP.

Tsunami Bomb Weapon Reported in New Zealand’s Top Newspaper: All of the deepest research on these projects is classified for reasons of “national security.” They don’t want the public to know about the very disturbing and damaging capabilities they have developed.

Surveillance is pervasive: Yes, you are being watched, even if no one is looking for you: It’s increasingly difficult to move about, both in the physical world and online, without being tracked. Most Americans are aware of video surveillance of public spaces. Likewise, most people know about online tracking – and want Congress to do something about it. But as a researcher who studies digital culture and secret communications, I believe that to understand how pervasive surveillance is, it’s important to recognize how physical and digital tracking work together.

More could have been done to save Uvalde victims, a new report says: McCraw said police had enough officers and firepower on the scene of the Uvalde school massacre to have stopped the gunman three minutes after he entered the building, and they would have found the door to the classroom where he was holed up unlocked if they had bothered to check it.
