Trump scores another Win in Mar-a-Lago case



Trump scores another Win in Mar-a-Lago case

Special Master Raymond Dearie had sought to require that Trump substantiate his claims that the FBI planted evidence during the raid.

By Ben Whedon

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday scored a major win in the ongoing court battle pertaining to the FBI’s seizure of documents from his Mar-a-Lago estate in early August.

“There shall be no separate requirement on Plaintiff at this stage, prior to the review of any of the Seized Materials, to lodge ex ante final objections to the accuracy of Defendant’s Inventory, its descriptions, or its contents,” wrote U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon in the Thursday ruling.

Special Master Raymond Dearie, whom Cannon appointed to independently review the documents the bureau seized, had sought to require that Trump substantiate his claims that the FBI planted evidence during the raid. Trump repeatedly suggested such on social media posts but his lawyers stopped short of making the claims in formal court filings.

Trump’s legal team submitted Dearie as a candidate to fill the role of special master. The DOJ agreed that he was a qualified choice and Judge Cannon appointed him earlier this month.

Moreover, Cannon extended the timeline for the special master review. The Department of Justice has until Oct. 14 to fully make available to Trump all of the relevant documents. Trump then has three weeks to present Dearie and the DOJ with a comprehensive review of those materials and make any claims to attorney-client or executive privilege or to claim them as personal or presidential records under the Presidential Records Act.

Trump must make each claim on a “document by document basis,” Cannon ruled. The DOJ will then have ten days to dispute any of Trump’s claims. Cannon further delayed the final deadline for the special master to complete his review to Dec. 16, 2022.

“This modest enlargement is necessary to permit adequate time for the Special Master’s review and recommendations given the circumstances as they have evolved since entry of the Appointment Order,” she wrote.

22 Lawmakers Demand Merrick Garland Explain Raid on Pro-Life Activist’s Home



22 Lawmakers Demand Merrick Garland Explain Raid on Pro-Life Activist’s Home

BREITBART

As many as 22 lawmakers have called upon Attorney General Merrick Garland to provide an explanation as to why the FBI allegedly sent 25-30 fully-armed agents to arrest Catholic pro-life activist Mark Houck as his “screaming” children watched in horror.

Released Tuesday, the open letter  spearheaded by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said that the FBI should have an “extraordinary reason” for arresting Houck the way they allegedly did. The letter said:

There is much to learn about the extent of the FBI’s operations in this case, apparently since state-level charges were apparently dismissed by local authorities in Philadelphia. Surely, the FBI must have an extraordinary reason for showing up at the home of an American family, allegedly with roughly 25 heavily armed federal agents, and arresting a father in front of his seven children.

“At the moment, it appears to be an extraordinary overreach for political ends,” the letter added.

The letter demanded that Merrick Garland respond by September 30.

Republican Congressman Chip Roy of Texas told Fox News that the raid against Houck is further indicative of how politicized the FBI and the Department of Justice have become under President Joe Biden.

Mark Houck, the founder and president of The King’s Men — a group dedicated to helping men become better husbands, fathers, and leaders — was arrested at his rural Pennsylvania home last Friday for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act during his regular sidewalk counseling outside of an abortion clinic in 2021. Speaking with LifeSiteNews, Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie, said that around 25 to 30 fully armored FBI agents stormed their property early Friday morning, aiming their rifles as the children screamed in horror.

The FBI denied sending a SWAT team to Houck’s residence while not denying that 25 to 30 fully-armed FBI agents were on site to apprehend Houck that morning…

Former Italian PM Says ‘Return of Fascism’ Narrative is “Absolutely Fake News”

Former Italian PM Says ‘Return of Fascism’ Narrative is “Absolutely Fake News”


Former Italian PM Says ‘Return of Fascism’ Narrative is “Absolutely Fake News”

Georgia Meloni’s victory is not a “danger” to democracy. ~Former Leftist PM

Paul Joseph Watson

The notion that right-wing candidate Georgia Meloni’s victory in Italy represents a threat to Italian democracy or the return of fascism is “absolutely fake news,” according to the country’s leftist former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

Whoops, narrative fail.

Meloni’s center-right coalition swept to victory in Sunday’s elections, easily defeating her left-wing opposition.

This prompted a wave of hysterical media coverage, with numerous publications warning of the “return of fascism in Italy,” due to the far-right origins of Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party.

However, such concerns were dismissed by an unexpected figure, former leftist Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

“Personally frankly speaking, I was against Georgia Meloni, so I’m not her best friend…we were and will be rivals always,” Renzi told CNN.

“At the same time, I think that is not a danger to Italian democracy, he added.

“The idea there is a risk of fascism in Italy is absolutely fake news, she won because of populism,” the former Prime Minister asserted.

Renzi was the Prime Minister of Italy from 2014-2016 after serving as the Mayor of Florence, a traditionally left wing city, before that.

Meloni herself has repeatedly asserted that she is not a fascist and merely wants to represent the interests of Italians and not those of “nihilistic globalist elites, driven by international finance.”

Of course, merely to take that position guarantees vilification by an establishment which has repeatedly tried to create a moral panic around populism by asserting it represents a return to the 1930’s.

FBI whistleblower’s wife suspended by Social Media after sending a private message

FBI whistleblower’s wife suspended by Social Media after sending a private message


FBI whistleblower’s wife suspended from Facebook after sending a private message

Part of the reason Whistleblower Steve Friend spoke out against the FBI was that he believed the January 6 investigations were violating constitutional rights. 

By Charlotte Hazard

President of Empower Oversight Whistleblowers and Research, Jason Foster, discusses the mistreatment of whistleblowers and their families when they come forward.

“The FBI is notorious for retaliating against whistleblowers,” Jason Foster told the “Just the News, Not Noise” show Monday. “They’re just getting smarter at it by using security clearances as a pretext.”

FBI special agent Steve Friend is a whistleblower who spoke out against wrongdoing regarding the January 6 Capitol riot and as a result, he was suspended from his position.

According to Foster, Friend’s wife had her account suspended on Facebook for merely having sent a private message.

“What’s been reported to me is that his wife sent a private message to someone who had reached out through an intermediary and asked if there was any way that they could be helpful to Steve given what he was going through,” Foster explained. 

Friend’s wife had responded by saying she was grateful that the person had reached out and said that the best way they could help was to share the story of what happened to Steve, since he got suspended after speaking out.

“Within 30 minutes, her Facebook account was was suspended,” Foster explained. “She identified herself in the private message as Steve’s wife.”

Part of the reason Friend spoke out against the FBI was that he believed the January 6 investigations were violating constitutional rights. 

“I believed the investigations were inconsistent with FBI procedure and resulted in the violation of citizens’ Sixth and Eighth Amendment rights,” Friend had written. “I added that many of my colleagues expressed similar concerns to me but had not vocalized their objections to FBI Executive Management.”

We reached out, but the FBI has not responded for comment.

FBI Whistleblower: Many Agents “Don’t Agree” With Bureau’s Direction

FBI Whistleblower: Many Agents “Don’t Agree” With Bureau’s Direction


FBI Whistleblower: Many Agents “Don’t Agree” With Bureau’s Direction

Post by Tyler Durden | Written by Jack Phillips via The Epoch Times

An FBI whistleblower recently came forward and issued warnings about alleged politicization at the FBI, saying that the bureau is spying on law-abiding Americans and that many of its domestic counterterrorism cases are tantamount to “entrapment.”

Kyle Seraphin, who has spent six years in the FBI, was suspended without pay and cannot seek another job without quitting or asking for permission. It’s not clear when he was suspended, but he said that he had run-ins with his managers about his refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine although he was granted a religious exemption.

“The number of guys who say, ‘I don’t agree with what’s going on here, but I’ve got three years to retire,’ it’s heartbreaking,” he told podcast host Dan Bongino.

In one instance, Seraphin said he was forced to blow the whistle last year when Attorney General Merrick Garland told lawmakers that the Department of Justice was not targeting parents. He gave to a member of Congress an email that was circulated in the FBI, which said that Garland ordered the usage of the controversial PATRIOT Act to target parents with a tag, “EDUOFFICIALS.”

At the time, in May 2022, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mike Johnson (R-Ind.) alleged that the investigations involved parents who were “upset about mask mandates and state elected officials who publicly voiced opposition to vaccine mandates,” accusing Garland of making false statements to Congress.

“That’s when you become part of political hatchet jobs, and I didn’t sign up for that, and nobody I know signed up for that either,” Seraphin told Bongino. “That’s not what people want to get involved in.”

In an interview with the Washington Times last week, he said the bureau’s investigations into domestic violent extremism, white nationalists, and right-wing extremists are mostly entrapment operations with questionable moral and ethical underpinnings.

“My team was deployed to 20 or 25 different high profile, national terrorism organization or terrorism investigations between 2018 and 2021. And what I saw, as the most obvious statement, is that there are three things about counterterrorism investigations,” he said.

Seraphin stated: “Number one, the demand for white supremacy vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy.”

“Number two,” he added, “the FBI‘s playbook when it comes to counterterrorism investigations is always and unequivocally morally equivalent to entrapment, even if there’s a legal definition that allows them to skirt that.”

‘Inaccurate’

As for No. 3, Seraphin added to the Washington Times that the FBI doesn’t have an objective metric on how they prioritize cases.

“There’s an entirely ridiculous internal process for determining every single national priority,” the whistleblower said.

The Epoch Times has contacted the FBI for comment. A bureau spokesperson told the paper that his claims about entrapment lacked merit.

“This comment is inaccurate and represents a clear misunderstanding of the policy and practice in FBI investigations,” the FBI said in a statement to the outlet.

In the Bongino interview, Seraphin suggested that more FBI employees will come forward in the future, according to him, due to the bureau’s now-partisan nature.

At least 14 FBI whistleblowers have come forward in recent months to provide information about recent actions inside the bureau, said Jordan, on the FBI’s investigations into the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, parents at school board meetings, and Hunter Biden’s laptop.

At one point during the interview, Seraphin also touched on the Aug. 8 raid targeting former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. Trump has often said that the search was political in nature and meant to harm his 2024 chances.

“You ask me to go raid President Obama’s house, you ask me to raid President Bush’s house, it’s not happening,” he continued. “It’s not happening. I’m sorry, it’s not happening. I’m not doing that. I’m going to be, probably pretty vocal. That’s probably going to be my last day.”

A Fed Public Health Scientist & Feds’ Advisers challenge C-19 policy, bvvd Booster [Video]



A Fauci Scientist & Feds’ Advisers challenge COVID policy, bivalent Booster

Approval and Timing

Medicare bonuses for COVID-positive patients under ongoing “emergency” are distorting public health, NIAID scientist argues. CDC forces advisers to rubber-stamp decision on two-month bivalent booster interval, which could hurt immunity from prior infection.

By Greg Piper

Public health experts, including one of Anthony Fauci’s own scientists, are warning that federal COVID policy may cause imminent harm.

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases staff scientist Margery Smelkinson, a two-time “merit award recipient,” called on the administration to end the official COVID public health emergency, which threatens resources for monkeypox and polio response by giving hospitals a 20% Medicare bump for each COVID-positive patient.

“This bolus of payments might help explain why all the large urban hospital systems we checked and the vast majority of smaller systems were still COVID testing all patients,” Smelkinson and Oregon Health and Sciences University instructor Leslie Bienen, who trains undergraduates to become scientific researchers, wrote in a Detroit Free Press op-ed.

Testing can also be a moneymaker for hospitals, which are now “full of people who are there for non-COVID reasons but cannot be discharged to rehab or skilled nursing facilities because of their positive test,” they wrote. The federal emergency props up “pointless but harmful” restrictions by state and local governments as well.

The CDC is weakening post-infection immunity by recommending people get newly authorized bivalent boosters as soon as two months from their last vaccine dose, University of California San Francisco infectious disease professor Monica Gandhi and emergency physician Michael Daignault wrote in a Time op-ed.

The authors previously recommended eight-week intervals between primary series doses based on immunologic studies, and are now recommending six months for bivalent boosters. “Short-interval repeat boosting or boosting too soon after a post-vaccination infection will limit the neutralizing antibody response and stunt the expansion of memory B cells,” the duo wrote.

The CDC told its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, whose job is developing recommendations, that it couldn’t deviate from the two-month window in the FDA’s emergency use authorization, prompting alarm from epidemiologist Tracy Beth Hoeg and lawyers Laura Powell and Scott Davison.

CDC officials told skeptical ACIP members Sept. 1 (starting at the 2-hour 48-minute mark) that the Prep Act’s liability provisions require their recommendations to “be in line with the EUA.” They said the committee can’t even stay silent on interval windows, as one member proposed to give doctors leeway on boosters for recently infected patients.

This may help explain the agency’s “(very) simplified message,” Hoeg wrote in a tweet thread. She noted that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky dodged the question when asked what benefit a healthy young adult would get from the new booster.

“We are simplifying our message” to say everyone 12 and up “need[s] to get your fall booster,” Walensky told MSNBC. The CDC didn’t answer requests to explain the purpose of ACIP’s recommendations if it must legally rubber-stamp the FDA’s EUA provisions.

The simplified message may be confusing those who administer vaccines. A CVS pharmacist told a journalist who made an appointment for a bivalent booster that it was “fake news” to claim the new boosters weren’t tested in humans.

The Omicron BA.4/5 formulation in the new Pfizer and Moderna jabs was only tested in a handful of mice, which worries Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, who voted against their authorization as a member of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.

“I’m uncomfortable that … we would give millions or tens of millions of doses to people based on mouse data,” Offit told The Wall Street Journal. The FDA is making “huge assumptions” that the first run of mRNA vaccines will behave like flu vaccines, which are also not tested in humans before release each flu season, he told NBC News.

Conservative Group Asks IRS To Deny Tax Exemptions To Big Tech For 2020 Election Grants

Conservative Group Asks IRS To Deny Tax Exemptions To Zuckerberg For 2020 Election Grants

Post by Tyler Durden | Written by Steven Kovac via The Epoch Times

A conservative activist group has filed a complaint with the IRS asking the agency to deny personal tax exemptions for Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan arising from the couple’s funding of grant programs to help municipalities pay for the 2020 general election.

In a second complaint, the Center to Renew America (CRA) requested the removal of tax exemptions for three Zuckerberg-supported non-profits: the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), and the National Vote at Home Institute (NVAHI).

The complaints allege that the Zuckerbergs and the three organizations pumped almost $500 million into the 2020 election process in an effort to influence the outcome in favor of candidate Joe Biden and other Democrats.

CTCL alone distributed nearly $350 million in grants to local election departments with a stated mission of helping them conduct safe elections during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

.

Mark Zuckerberg, through various non-profit organizations, contributed hundreds of millions of dollars towards efforts to rig the 2020 election,” states a Sept. 22 tweet from the CRA. “Today, we filed TWO formal IRS complaints against Zuckerberg to call him on this ILLEGAL activity.”

CTCL brushed off similar allegations from conservative groups in December 2021 as “disinformation,” asserting in its final report on the 2020 COVID-19 response grant program that “partisan considerations played no role in the availability or awarding of funding.”

The report states that nearly 2,500 election departments spread over 49 states received grants ranging from $5,000 to $19 million.

For years, conservatives have accused the Zuckerbergs and the three organizations of directing millions of dollars in grant funding to Democrat-leaning localities.

They allege that most of the money was spent on voter registration drives and get-out-the-vote efforts in the large cities of several swing states, instead of on public health.

Statistics published by CTCL show that the city of Detroit, a Democrat stronghold, received more than $3.5 million in grant money in the runup to the 2020 presidential election, while most Republican-dominated jurisdictions received $5,000 grants or nothing at all.

Fully Armed FBI SWAT Team Raids Pennsylvania Evangelist’s Home

Fully Armed FBI SWAT Team Raids Pennsylvania Evangelist’s Home

Terrorizes Family Over Pro-Life Views

BECKER NEWS

A fully armed FBI SWAT team was dispatched to a Pennsylvania evangelist’s home on Friday and terrorized his family for sermonizing pro-life messages and spreading the Christian gospel.

The FBI raid was the latest example of the Biden administration’s targeting of political adversaries and policy critics. It was conducted in connection with a purported “FACE Act” violation, which is a law that allegedly protects the Freedom of Access to Clinical Entrances, typically for women to receive abortions.

According to his wife Ryan-Marie, who spoke with LifeSiteNews, every Wednesday Houck drives two hours south to Philadelphia and councils on the sidewalk for six to eight hours at two different abortion centers.

Ryan-Marie, a homeschool mother, explained that “the SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents” swarmed their property with “around 15 vehicles at 7:05 a.m.” on Fridau morning. After surrounding the house with rifles in firing position, “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

Before opening the door, her husband tried to calm his wife and small children, saying, “‘Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming,” she said.

When Mark opened the door, “'[he FBI] had big, huge rifles pointed at Mark and pointed at me and kind of pointed throughout the house,” Ryan-Marie described.

When they came in, the FBI agents ordered the kids to stay upstairs. “Our staircase is open, so [the kids] were all at the top of the stairs which faces the front door, and I was on the stairs as well, coming down.”

“The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic,” she added.

The FBI agents told the Houcks they were there to arrest Mark. When Ryan-Marie asked to see the warrant, “they said that they were going to take him whether they had a warrant or not.”

The agents nonetheless agreed to get the warrant for her from one of their vehicles, and proceeded to arrest Mark Houck.

The FBI agents provided the first page of the warrant and said they were taking him to “the federal building in downtown Philadelphia.”

“After they had taken Mark, and the kids were all screaming that he was their best friend, the [FBI agents on her porch] kind of softened a bit. I think they realized what was happening. Or maybe they actually looked at the warrant,” Ryan-Marie explained. “They looked pretty ashamed at what had just happened.”

The warrant charged Mark with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, due to a claimed “ATTACK OF A PATIENT ESCORT.”

Critically, Ryan-Marie stated this charge comes from an incident that had already been thrown out of the District Court in Philadelphia, but was somehow picked up by Merrick Garland’s politicized Department of Justice.

Doug Mastriano, who is running for Pennsylvania governor, released a statement blasting the FBI raid.

“The continued weaponization of the FBI and persecution of Joe Biden’s DOJ against ordinary Americans is an outrage,” Mastriano said.

“This morning, a heavily armed SWAT team of dozens of FBI agents raided the home of Mark Houck of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with his wide and terrified children inside over a case that was long thrown out by the District Court in Philadelphia,” he continued.

“Citizens across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania join me in expressing our outrage at this early-morning raid executed on a young family,” he added. “This show of force carried out by the Biden regime against ordinary Americans is an abuse of power that stands against the fundamentla principles on which our country was founded.”

“As Governor, I will not allow the police state of Joe Biden to enforce his persecution against his political enemies on sacred Pennsylvania soil,” he closed. “Not on my watch.”
