# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
Covid Cases, Hospitalizations Spike as New Variant Gains Foothold: The latest surge, likely worsened by holiday gatherings, comes as the number of vaccines administered hits a three-month lull despite ongoing pleas from public health officials.
America’s spy agencies failed to protect us from China’s bio-warfare program: The US has nearly 20 intelligence agencies tasked with protecting its citizens from global bio-terror, none of which has yet to determine exactly how the coronavirus originated. American taxpayers shell out billions each year to our 18 spy agencies, the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and NSA (National Security Agency) the best-known of them, so they can protect us from foreign threats. And these threats include COVID-19, which originated in China. At minimum, these agencies must use their incredible human spy-power and powerful technology to collect (or even steal) secrets to determine where threats originate so we can neutralize them. Because if we don’t, we will be dealing with these threats again and again.

What Israel’s New Far-Right Government Means for Palestinians: The coalition agreements, released a day before the government is to be sworn into office, included language endorsing discrimination against LGBTQ people on religious grounds, contentious judicial reforms. The package laid the groundwork for what is expected to be a stormy beginning for the country’s most religious and right-wing government in history, putting it at odds with large parts of the Israeli public, rankling Israel’s closest allies and escalating tensions with the Palestinians.
Netanyahu’s ‘Big Lie’ Will End Rule of Law in Israel: Critics of Benjamin Netanyahu say reforms to limit the authority of the supreme court will grant his coalition absolute power and overturn Israel’s constitutional rule.
