New York Magazine just became the first of the corporate media to acknowledge that the COVID-19 virus, which plagued the world for most of 2020, may have originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.

While many corrupt publications hounded conservatives and U.S. officials for spreading the same Chinese lab information earlier in the year, the magazine article received no backlash from the media for stating that there is a “reasonable chance” that a scientific experiment, created and designed in the lab to help prevent other respiratory viruses, could have likely escaped into the public due to an accident.

As a matter of fact, the corporate media did not even make a peep about the article’s explanation for how U.S. money, resources, and even scientists such as Dr. Anthony Fauci were involved in funding, informing, and encouraging this research, and how the federal government and Chinese scientists were concerned about the Wuhan lab in particular, even before a hint of the 2020 pandemic.

Many publications and networks originally downplayed concerns in early 2020 that the virus was created and then released from a lab in China, not contracted through a wet market, despite the fact that those concerns were coming from U.S. officials such as deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger and Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton.

“There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus,” Pottinger said recently. “Even establishment figures in Beijing have openly dismissed the wet market story,” he continued.

Pottinger first began to raise concerns about the virus’s origins in January 2020, encouraging U.S. intelligence officials to investigate. Shortly after, Cotton began to sound the alarm about COVID-19’s beginnings in a Wall Street Journal opinion editorial outlining a new government investigation into the Chinese lab, which may have created and housed it. In the article, Cotton explained that China swiftly covered up any evidence about the lab and the coronavirus’s origins.

“Beijing has claimed that the virus originated in a Wuhan ‘wet market,’ where wild animals were sold. But evidence to counter this theory emerged in January,” he wrote.

It was at this point that the corrupt media corporations targeted Cotton for allegedly spreading what they claimed to be “conspiracy theories” with  “zero evidence” about COVID-19, citing and amplifying “experts” and “scientists” who condemned the information.

Despite the corporate media’s persistence in attacking Cotton and undermining his claims as “baseless,” the publications so far haven’t responded to the New York Magazine article with nearly the same level of scrutiny after it began to spread on Twitter and other social media platforms on Monday.

Convicted fundraiser who tried to work his way into Biden’s inner circle sentenced to prison

Published

on

Amajor Democratic bundler, who raised large sums for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and consorted with Joe Biden, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for what prosecutors said was a “mercenary” political influence scheme.

Imaad Zuberi, a Californian businessman was sentenced Thursday for schemes to funnel foreign money into U.S. political campaigns, then take millions of dollars for himself.

The Los Angeles Times reported that U.S. Assistant Attorney Daniel J. O’Brien said Zuberi was “purely a mercenary, funneling money to whomever he believed would do his bidding.”

Among the many unsealed court records, Zuberi was seen photographed with Joe Biden and Barack Obama when they were Vice President and President. He was also pictured with former President Bill Clinton and former presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. He took pictures with former Republican Rep. Paul Ryan when he was speaker of the House as well as the late Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

Also included in the Times report was a hacked email chain released on WikiLeaks. Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook messaged colleagues saying, “I’m OK taking the money and dealing with any attacks.” Jennifer Palmieri responded saying, “Take the money!”

He also attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party in New York City in 2016 as well as serving as a co-chair of The Trump Presidential Inauguration Committee.

Zuberi made more than $950,000 in unlawful donations to the political committees of Obama, Clinton, McCain and others. Zuberi’s activities extended as far as a recent attempt to work his way into the Biden circle, according to Politico.  

In addition to the money he made, Zuberi also raised $270,000 for Hillary Clinton and $1.3 million for President Obama.

Zuberi, 50, pleaded guilty to a “three-count information charging with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)” for making false statements on a FARA filing as well as tax evasion and illegal contributions to political campaigns. He also pleaded guilty in a separate case earlier in June 2020 to a count of obstruction of justice.

“Zuberi turned acting as an unregistered foreign agent into a business enterprise,” Assistant Attorney General for National Secretary John C. Demers said in a Department of Justice news release.

Cruz responds to pictures of him on Mexico flight, with Texas struggling from deadly winter storm

Published

on

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz confirmed Thursday that he flew earlier this week to Mexico with family members, following the emergence of pictures appearing to show him in an airplane cabin and at a check-in counter, as fellow residents to recover from a deadly winter storm.

Cruz said in a statement that he accompanied his daughters on a flight Wednesday night to Mexico because they had the week off with school canceled.

“Wanting to be a good dad,” said Cruz, who also stated he is returning to Texas on Thursday afternoon.

The storms has been connected to at least seven deaths in Texas and knocked out power to as many as 2.5 million residents. The number of residents without electricity as of Thursday morning was down to less than 1 million, officials said.

“My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas,” Cruz also said. “We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm.”

South Carolina House passes bill that would prohibit most abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected

Published

on

The South Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 79-35 to pass legislation that would prohibit most abortions. 

The bill must pass through a procedural vote in the House on Thursday prior to heading to GOP Gov. Henry McMaster who has indicated that he will sign it, according to the Associated Press. Two Republicans voted against the legislation while two Democrats voted for it. The state Senate passed the measure last month. 

The bill requires doctors to carry out an ultrasound to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is identified an abortion can only be performed in certain circumstances.

The legislation would not penalize a woman for obtaining an unlawful abortion, though the individual responsible for performing the abortion could face consequences.

The outlet reported that other states have approved similar or even more stringent abortion prohibitions which could be implemented if the Supreme Court throws out the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. All of the other states’ abortion bans are currently entangled by court challenges and if the South Carolina bill is approved it will likely face litigation that prevents it from going into effect, according to the AP.
