Peter Hotez Connected to “Chimeric” Coronavirus Creation from Wuhan

Published

on

Peter Hotez, dean of the Baylor College of Medicine and a pediatrician, has a personal connection to the development of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) and other chimeric coronaviruses in communist China. Hotez knows he would lose any discussion with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. over vaccinations.

Hotez, who frequently appeared on the fake news channels CNN and NBC during the “pandemic,” recently made an appearance on a Joe Rogan podcast episode where he was challenged to debate Kennedy. Even a charity pot that had amassed $2.6 million in less than 24 hours was linked to it, but Hotez declined.

Hotez first attempted to wriggle out of the discussion by urging them to “take this down,” which Rogan referred to as a “non-answer.” In exchange for Hotez agreeing to debate Kennedy, Rogan first gave $100,000 of his own money to a charity of Hotez’s choosing. However, when other people added money to the pot, the original $100,000 donation quickly increased to millions of dollars. In the end, Hotez declined to take part and essentially embarrassed himself. Later, he attacked Rogan’s program, saying that the “anti-vaccine lobby” had “tag-teamed” and “attacked” him.

After making fun of himself, Hotez said, “And the stuff online is just utter whack-a-doodle.” And let’s face it, those three men are tres hombres when they’re working together, like RFK Jr., Joe Rogan, and Elon Musk. That most likely includes all of your Twitter followers. Therefore, it’s rather overwhelming.

Hotez’s final response about his decision to decline the debate was that “in science, we don’t normally hold debates.” Scientists “produce scientific publications,” not “usually argue science,” asserts Hotez. Hotez keeps attacking his opponents and refusing to defend his beliefs while acknowledging that he would certainly lose any argument very fast. In addition, Hotez is associated with the dubious gain-of-function study with bat coronaviruses, which he probably would not want to have brought up in a debate.

Hotez utilized a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding he was awarded for the creation of a SARS vaccine between 2012 and 2017. The grant’s declared goal was to support research that would aid in handling any “accidental escape from a laboratory” and potential zoonotic viral spillover. According to reports, “Hotez subcontracted money for research on mixed or “chimeric” coronaviruses as part of his NIH grant.” “Hotez’s funding supported two of Shi’s project colleagues. [Shi oversaw the coronavirus modification research at the Wuhan lab]”

Shi and her colleagues created a recombinant virus called “rWIV1-SHC014S” from two SARS-related coronaviruses in the 2017 study that Hotez helped fund. It is unclear if the interim “hold” on gain-of-function work before 2017 should have been applied to the article that Hotez co-funded. The material above, which was obtained from a U.S. Right to Know article, is damning, in Dr. Pierre Kory’s opinion, since it demonstrates “how Hotez labored again and over to cover up the potential SARS-CoV-2 may have come from a lab.”

Given all of this, it seems to reason that Hotez wishes to avoid the spotlight while briefly stepping into it by joining Rogan on the show. If he can get away with it, Hotez, we believe, will try to make himself untraceable in the media from this point forward.

Democrats Block SAVE Act in Senate, Allowing Potential for Illegal Immigrant Voting

Published

on

Senate Democrats have thwarted the passage of the SAVE Act, a pivotal bill aimed at bolstering the integrity of federal elections by mandating proof of citizenship for voting eligibility. This move follows the House’s approval of the bill with a narrow vote of 221-198, where almost all Democrats opposed the measure.

The SAVE Act seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to enforce stricter voter registration standards. Specifically, it proposes that voters must furnish documentary evidence of U.S. citizenship to participate in federal elections, diverging from current regulations that only require such proof for state and local elections.

Senator Mike Lee, commending Representative Chip Roy for the bill’s passage, emphasized the necessity for Senate action, asserting, “Federal elections are only for U.S. citizens.”

However, despite efforts to expedite the bill in the Senate, Democrats raised objections, preventing its immediate passage. Senator Lee expressed frustration over the blockage, highlighting the potential consequences: “It’ll stop noncitizens from voting.”

In a statement on the Senate floor, Senator Lee voiced deep concerns, citing a recent study revealing significant opportunities for illegal voting by noncitizens. The study indicated that between 10% to 27% of noncitizens are registered to vote, with 5% to 13% actually participating in presidential elections.

Instances of voter fraud, including noncitizens illegally registered to vote, have been documented across the country. Reports have surfaced of unsolicited voter registration forms sent to noncitizens and inadequate checks during driver’s license issuance, contributing to vulnerabilities in the electoral system.

A video shared by Mike Howell, Executive Director of the Heritage Oversight Project, in collaboration with Muckraker.com, further underscored concerns. The video exposed instances of illegal aliens admitting to voter registration in North Carolina, emphasizing the need to safeguard American elections from foreign influence.

The SAVE Act’s blockade in the Senate has ignited a contentious debate over electoral integrity and the role of citizenship in voting rights. As the legislative battle continues, the future of federal voting regulations remains uncertain, with implications for the upcoming 2024 elections.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Reinstates Unstaffed Drop Boxes Ahead of 2024 Election

Published

on

In a significant ruling on July 5, the Wisconsin Supreme Court decided to reinstate the use of unstaffed drop boxes for absentee ballots, reversing the prohibition that had been in effect since 2022. The court’s 4–3 decision marks a pivotal change in Wisconsin’s election procedures ahead of the 2024 elections.

In 2022, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that state law did not allow for absentee drop boxes to be placed anywhere other than in election clerk offices. This decision effectively banned the use of unmanned drop boxes, which had been widely utilized in previous elections to facilitate absentee voting.

The reversal of the 2022 ruling was influenced by a change in the court’s composition. A new justice was elected in 2023, which led to a re-evaluation of the previous decision. During the arguments in May, Justice Jill Karofsky questioned the validity of the 2022 ruling, suggesting that it may have been a mistake. “What if we just got it wrong? What if we made a mistake? Are we now supposed to just perpetuate that mistake into the future?” Karofsky asked during the proceedings.

The court heard arguments three months before the August 13 primary and six months ahead of the November presidential election. Attorneys representing Republican backers of the 2022 ruling contended that there had been no changes in the facts or the law to justify overturning a decision that was less than two years old. Misha Tseytlin, at torney for the Republican-controlled Legislature, argued that overturning the ruling could lead to future instability, as the court might have to revisit the issue whenever its composition changes.

However, Justice Karofsky countered this by pointing out the potential flaws in the 2022 decision, questioning whether the court should continue to uphold a ruling that was “egregiously wrong from the start” with “exceptionally weak” reasoning and damaging consequences.

Democrats and voting rights advocates argued that the 2022 ruling misinterpreted the law by concluding that absentee ballots could only be returned to a clerk’s office and not to a drop box controlled by the clerk. David Fox, attorney for the groups challenging the prohibition, described the current law as unworkable and unclear about where ballots can be returned.

Several justices expressed concerns about revisiting the previous ruling, with Justice Rebecca Bradley cautioning against the court acting as a “super Legislature” and giving municipal clerks excessive discretion in conducting elections.

The case was brought by voter mobilization group Priorities USA and the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Voters. Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Elections Commission, which oversees the state’s elections, supported the use of drop boxes. Election officials from four counties, including the state’s two largest, also filed briefs in support of overturning the prohibition, arguing that drop boxes had been used securely for decades.

The plaintiffs’ attorneys highlighted the practical impact of the 2022 ruling, noting that over 1,600 absentee ballots arrived late and were not counted in the 2022 election when drop boxes were not in use. By contrast, in the 2020 election, when drop boxes were available, only 689 ballots arrived after Election Day, despite a significantly higher number of absentee voters.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate unstaffed drop boxes is a crucial development in the state’s election laws, potentially increasing accessibility and convenience for absentee voters. As the 2024 elections approach, this ruling may have significant implications for voter turnout and the administration of elections in Wisconsin.

Elon Musk Backs Voter Bill Aimed at Providing Proof of U.S. Citizenship to Vote, Labels Opponents as “Traitors”

Published

on

Elon Musk recently voiced strong support for the SAVE Act, a bill proposed by House Speaker Mike Johnson aimed at ensuring only U.S. citizens can vote in federal elections. The Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) by mandating documentary proof of U.S. citizenship for voter registration in federal elections.

The bill outlines several key measures:

  • State election officials must verify citizenship before providing voter registration forms.
  • Individuals must provide proof of citizenship to register to vote in federal elections.
  • States can accept various documents to make it easier for citizens to register.
  • States will have access to federal agency databases to remove non-citizens from voter rolls.
  • The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is directed to determine whether to initiate removal proceedings if a non-citizen is identified as registered to vote.
  • DHS must notify state election officials when individuals are naturalized to ensure they can exercise their voting rights.

Supporters, including Musk, argue that these measures are necessary to protect the integrity of U.S. elections by preventing non-citizens from voting. Critics of the bill claim it could disenfranchise eligible voters by imposing additional hurdles to the registration process.
