    Fired FBI executive Andrew McCabe says America's conservatives are as bad as Islamic terrorists and the federal government needs vastly increased powers to spy on them. The stunning words from McCabe came during his recent speech at the University of Chicago, and were captured by a report in The Federalist about his comments on conservatives. "I can tell you from my perspective of spending a lot of time focused on the radicalization of international terrorists and Islamic extremist and extremists of all stripes … is that this group shares many of the same characteristics of those groups that we've seen...

    The Democrat-controlled January 6 committee is proposing a new expansion to government surveillance programs. In an interview on Sunday, committee chairman Benny Thompson (D-Miss.) said the Democrat panel will recommend new legislation to boost government spying on citizens to prevent future protests at the U.S. Capitol. The Mississippi Democrat claimed broader surveillance is necessary to ensure security of the U.S. government. Thompson also denounced the January 6 protests,

    The Public Health Agency admits it tracked 33 million mobile devices to monitor the population’s movement during lockdowns, according to Blacklock’s Reporter. The agency says cell tower locators were used to “understand the public’s responsiveness during lockdown measures.” “Due to the urgency of the pandemic the Agency collected and used mobility data such as cell tower location data throughout the COVID-19 response,” said agency spokesperson Mark Johnson. “It was to help understand possible links between the movement of populations within Canada and COVID.” The reason the directive was disclosed was, according to Johnson, to “to be open and transparent.” However,...

    Former Trump Cabinet member Dr. Ben Carson registered concern and disappointment about 80 House Republicans voting with all House Democrats to expand federal vaccine surveillance by connecting and expanding state databases. “It will secondarily be used for other things as well. We have got to be smart enough to recognize these signs when we see them and stop them, to nip them in the bud before it becomes too late,” the former Republican presidential candidate said to Fox host Maria Bartiromo. “It doesn’t take long to change a nation.” Carson’s remarks came in response to Bartiromo’s question about H.R. 550,...

    Typically, a case like Kevin Clinesmith's would end in disbarment, but not this time. Kevin Clinesmith, the former senior FBI lawyer who was placed on probation as a convicted felon for falsifying a surveillance document during the Trump-Russia investigation, has been returned to "good standing" as a member of the D.C. Bar Association. In August of 2020, Clinesmith pleaded guilty to doctoring an email that was then used to justify a surveillance warrant that targeted former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. As a result, Clinesmith was sentenced in January to 12 months probation, though the D.C. bar did not seek...

    A senior German Cardinal has warned that the likes of Bill Gates, George Soros and Davos Economic Forum head Klaus Schwab are using the coronavirus pandemic to force the world under “total control” of globalist “super-rich elites.” Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Mueller, who also serves as a high ranking judge at the Vatican court, made the comments during an interview with Austria’s St. Boniface Institute. Mueller urged that “People, who sit on the throne of their wealth,” are seizing an “opportunity to push through their agenda.” The Cardinal added that the pandemic has led to “chaos” and “turmoil” in part due...

    CVS Health is partnering with Microsoft to develop a “data-driven, personalized, privacy-compliant customer experience,” which sounds a whole lot like Bill Gates getting his grubby, blood-stained hands into patients’ vaccine records.

    A federal judge is siding with Project Veritas over its request for an independent party to review the cellphones the FBI seized from the group's founder James O'Keefe. On Wednesday, District Court Judge Analisa Torres from the Southern District of New York is ordering a "special master" to be appointed to oversee the review of O'Keefe's devices, citing "potential First Amendment concerns." "The Court recognizes, as other courts in this district have concluded, that ‘the Southern District prosecutors have integrity and decency,' and the filter team alone could conduct the review ‘with utmost integrity,’" Torres wrote. "However, the Court determines...

    In 2015, Jonathan LaPook, Chief Medical Correspondent for CBS Evening News, moderated a discussion about bioelectronics. The panel consisted of Francis Collins, Moncef Slaoui, and Kevin Tracey.Bioelectronics is the convergence of biology and electronics. Biological activity can be measured and even harnessed using bioelectronic devices, with key applications in areas such as healthcare monitoring and disease treatment. But bioelectronics reaches well beyond biomedicine.In the description beneath a 2014 promotional video, The Future of Medicine states: “GSK believes that these [bioelectronic] devices could be programmed to read and correct the electrical signals that pass along the nerves of the body.”The Future...

    If you have a smartphone, you probably use its front-facing camera for selfies and the occasional video call. Perhaps, if you’re lucky, you’ll shoot the next viral TikTok masterpiece. You might use your next smartphone’s front camera for the same things, but there’s a chance that camera won’t completely turn off once you’re done with it. This week, chipmaker Qualcomm revealed its latest Snapdragon processor, which will power many of the high-end Android smartphones you’ll see in stores in 2022, including models from Motorola, Sony, OnePlus. And a new feature built into that chip could allow smartphone makers to keep...

    The Biden administration's strategy for dealing with COVID this winter includes widespread testing, as announced by President Biden on Thursday -- a message later amplified by Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday evening: "I mean, the president made that announcement in his five-part plan to address what we're going to be facing this winter," Fauci told MSNBC's Chris Hayes. "And one of them that we've spoken about and will happen is to really flood the system with tests, including free tests. "And, in fact, what people are not aware of is that there's an investment of billions of dollars to make...

Republicans say none have been formally subpoenaed.House Minority Leader...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may impose more travel restrictions and rules over the emergence of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus Omicron variant, according to federal officials. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told reporters Tuesday that the CDC is evaluating whether to change its policy by having travelers to the United States test for COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus, closer to their departure as well as “additional post-arrival testing and quarantine” measures. The CDC is working with airlines to obtain information on passengers for contact tracing should the need arise, she continued. “Based on...

    It did not seem possible for the Steele dossier – the collection of Trump-Russia conspiracy theories funded by the Clinton campaign; hyped by the US media establishment; and tapped by the FBI for surveillance and investigative leads – to get more embarrassing for all of those involved. But the indictment by Special Counsel John Durham of Steele's key source, Igor Danchenko, offers 39 pages of new evidence that Russiagate — after five years of failed innuendo, debunked “bombshells”, and humiliating revelations — has no rock bottom. Danchenko is accused of making false statements to the FBI about his role in...
