Rumors Swirl Over Which Biden Family Member Got Cut Of $3M CCP-Linked Wire


Washington DC is abuzz with speculation over which Biden family member got a cut of a $3 million wire transfer to Hunter Biden associate John "Rob" Walker, just weeks after Joe Biden was no longer Vice President in 2017.


According to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) - who last week said that evidence of CCP money flowing to the Biden family was "as bad as we thought," - revealed that bank records obtained via a subpoena have implicated a "new Biden family member" in the ongoing investigation into the first family's finances.


Comer told Fox News that Walker received a $3 million wire from two individuals tied to the Chinese Communist Party, which he then divvied up between Biden family members.


"The very next day after that wire was received, the Walker account started transferring money into three different Biden family members’ accounts, including a new Biden family member that’s never before been identified as someone being involved in the influence-peddling scheme," Comer told host Sean Hannity (as part of several recent interviews on the network).

Nebraska Democrat Says She Will ‘Burn the Session to the Ground’ Over Bill Banning Sex Change Surgeries for Children


Democrat Nebraska State Senator Machaela Cavanaugh has vowed to filibuster all bills unless Republicans back down on bills that would ban abortion and transgender surgeries and hormones for minors.


Sen. Cavanaugh is now three weeks into her filibuster and has vowed to “burn the session to the ground” if she does not get her way when it comes to mutilating children.


The session is now halfway over, and no bills have passed, because of Cavanaugh’s filibuster.


“If this Legislature collectively decides that legislating hate against children is our priority, then I am going to make it painful — painful for everyone,” Cavanaugh said, according to a report from the Associated Press. “I will burn the session to the ground over this bill.”


In February, the state senator expressed a similar sentiment, saying that “if you want to inflict pain upon our children, I am going to inflict pain upon this body.”


In order to stall bills, Cavanaugh has taken to the floor and spent hours talking about ridiculous things such as “her favorite Girl Scout cookies, Omaha’s best doughnuts and the plot of the animated movie ‘Madagascar,'” the Associated Press reports.


Omaha Sen. Kathleen Kauth has been the most viciously targeted by Sen. Cavanaugh because she is the one who introduced the legislation to ban hormones and transgender surgeries for minors.


LB574, or the Let Them Grow Act, would prohibit physicians in the state from performing or referring an individual for gender alteration procedures if the individual is under 19. The bill would also prohibit the distribution or use of state funds for any entity, organization, or individual that provides gender-altering procedures to minors.


“More than 85 percent of kids with gender dysphoria will desist if left alone in a process called ‘watchful waiting’,” Sen. Kauth said in a statement. “These children need therapy to deal with the coexisting mental and emotional struggles they are experiencing — not irreversible, harmful and experimental medical procedures.”


“A physician who knowingly violates the bill’s provisions would be subject to review by the state’s medical licensing board. An individual who received a gender altering procedure while under the age of 19, or their parent or guardian, could bring a civil action against the physician within two years of a procedure,” Sen. Kauth explained.


Cavanaugh has also previously stated that she is, in fact, threatening the other members of the senate.

Michigan Gov. Whitmer Used Federal Pandemic Relief Funds to Create Critical Race Theory and Social Justice Courses for Teachers


Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer used federal pandemic relief funds to create Critical Race Theory and social justice courses for teachers, according to a new report.


Whitmer reportedly allotted $1.4 million in CARES Act funds to Michigan State University College of Education, the University of Michigan’s School of Education, and Michigan Virtual to create online social justice courses.


Inside NoVa reports, “the way the program was funded has come under scrutiny from federal oversight agencies. The Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General said in a report released in September that the state could not support the process it used to select Michigan Virtual, MSU and UM to develop the modules.”


“The purpose of the program was to train teachers on how to implement the teacher professional learning standards developed by the Governor’s Education Advisory Council,” said a report from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General, which investigated how the state spent the federal pandemic money.


In 2019, Whitmer created the Governor’s Education Advisory Council and chose all 15 people who would serve on it. She personally signed off on granting the money, according to the report.


The courses created with COVID funds include “Anti-Racism and Social Justice Teaching and Leadership” and “Anti-Racist Trauma-Informed Practice in PreK-12 Education,” “Social-Emotional Learning: Equity Elaborations,” “Social-Emotional Learning: Assessment Mechanisms” and 11 others, the report states.


“The ‘Anti-Racism and Social Justice Teaching and Leadership’ module developed with MSU staff aims to teach educators about how to see racism and privilege and how they play out in school and society, analyze theoretical frameworks for anti-racist and social justice teaching, recognize system oppression and apply strategies to dismantle it and examine how to connect with staff and communities,” the report explained. “The material in that course asked teachers about how they could respond to a classroom situation in the most anti-racist way possible.”


A reading for the course by Candice Valenzuela argued that a “white dominant society” has “historical narcissism, historical amnesia and colonialist perpetration of violence” that needs to be confronted.


“Trauma-informed training cannot be facilitated by anyone who has not faced the generational, historical trauma of racism, White supremacy, heteropatriarchy, ableism and capitalism within their own bodies, communities and practices,” Valenzuela wrote. “We must not only hyper focus on the trauma of youth of color, but also ‘research up’ into the traumatic implications of White dominant society’s historical narcissism, historical amnesia and colonialist perpetration of violence.”

Seattle fire chief faces backlash after coordinating with BLM, Antifa rioters during CHAZ occupation


The chief “made us feel completely disempowered. We forcibly abandoned the citizens on the other side of those blockades. It delayed our ability to do our jobs and cost people their lives as a result.”


A group of Seattle firefighters have sent a letter to the King County Sheriff, King County prosecutor Leesa Manion, and Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell calling into question Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins’ ability to continue to lead the department following the discovery of evidence that he allegedly coordinated with the BLM/Antifa occupiers of the deadly Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) in 2020.


According to the letter obtained exclusively by The Post Millennial, the firefighters stated, “Chief Scoggins - while on duty, and in uniform, actively supported the perpetrators of the civil unrest and provided support, acting in the capacity as a city official. He ordered the removal of front-line emergency equipment from Fire Department vehicles and gave it to the people inside the 'autonomous zone', this bypasses set protocols and directly puts patients in way of harm by removing trained personnel and placing undue burden on civilians to administer aid. Chief Scoggins also openly stated that he facilitated the movement of cement blockades into the street of the protest zone, this reckless act made it impossible for the Fire Department to come to the aid of those inside the zone.”


One of the firefighters stated in their letter that Scoggins’ actions “made us feel completely disempowered. We forcibly abandoned the citizens on the other side of those blockades. It delayed our ability to do our jobs and cost people their lives as a result.”


The purpose of that letter, they wrote, “is to express our concern regarding Seattle Fire Chief, Harold Scoggins. Our concern is based on presumed criminal activity and engagement, failure to uphold his sworn oath, failure to adhere to required Seattle City Official expectations, and involvement in conspiracy to commit spoilation. We believe that the included actions of Chief Scoggins have damaged the reputation of the Seattle Fire Department, diminished morale among its members (which has contributed to the staffing shortage across the City and has resulted in loss of life and property caused by longer response times) and marred the trust that the community holds in the Department. The damage that the City and the Fire Department have withstood directly from Chief Scoggins’ actions may take decades to restore.”


The letter cited a District Court of Western Washington ruling last month in which Scoggins was found to have deleted communications, including thousands of texts, regarding the "autonomous zone" from his city-issued cell phone, which was ordered to be preserved.


According to the letter: “Though the investigation was opened on June 24, 2020, and a Litigation Holds order was placed on the information contained in text messages on Chief Scoggins’ device on July 22, 2020, on October 8, 2020 (77 days later), Chief Scoggins took his device to an Apple Store and had a factory reset preformed, deleting all text messages held on the device.”

Republicans Bail Out Biden Ambassador to India Nominee Eric Garcetti in Critical Confirmation Vote


The Senate confirmed former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) as President Joe Biden’s U.S. ambassador to India after seven Republicans voted with most Democrats on Wednesday to pass the vote.


The final vote count was 52 to 42 with six absences.


Garcetti’s fate in the narrowly divided Senate had been uncertain heading into Wednesday as Sens. John Fetterman (D-PA), Diane Feinstein (D-CA), and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) were expected to miss the vote for health reasons and other swing voters from both parties had appeared to be on the fence.


Republicans who voted for Garcetti:


Sen. Bill Hagerty (TN)

Sen. Todd Young (IN)

Sen. Roger Marshall (KS)

Sen. Susan Collins (ME)

Sen. Steve Daines (MT)

Sen. Bill Cassidy (LA)

Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC)


Democrats who voted against him:


Sen. Mark Kelly (AZ)

Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH)

Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI)


Garcetti, who served as L.A. mayor for nine years until 2022, was first nominated by Biden to serve as ambassador to India in July 2021, but the vote was tabled amid sexual harassment claims made against top Garcetti aide Rick Jacobs, as detailed in the Los Angeles Times.


Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) issued a report last year that found it was “more likely than not that Mayor Garcetti either had personal knowledge of the sexual harassment or should have been aware of it.”


Jacobs has denied any wrongdoing, Garcetti has denied any knowledge of any wrongdoing, and the White House has stood by the former mayor. Biden renominated Garcetti on January 3, the first day of the 118th Congress.


White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at the time that Garcetti was “well-qualified” for the “vital role” and that the White House was “hopeful that the Senate [would] confirm him promptly.”


Prior to Garcetti’s confirmation Wednesday, the role of U.S. ambassador to India had been open for more than two years, and Republicans voting in favor of Garcetti largely indicated they were willing to overlook his perceived downsides to fill a role critical to the United States’ response to threats from China.


Hagerty, who typically votes with Republicans but voted for Garcetti, previously served as U.S. ambassador to Japan, a country that has been an equally important partner as India to the U.S. — all three countries along with Australia are members of the “Quad” alliance — in terms of addressing competition from China.


“This is a national security imperative,” Young, another Republican who crossed the aisle to support Garcetti, told CNN. “We have to balance concerns people might have about the nominee against the real risk of waiting another year until we have an ambassador on the ground.


Garcetti became a major ally for Senate Democrats in 2018, raising more than $1 million at a single fundraising event with Hollywood figures in California to support Senate candidates in the election that year.


Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a noticeably brief statement after Garcetti’s confirmation, “The United States-India relationship is extremely important and it’s a very good thing we now have an Ambassador.”

Family defends Orthodox 'rabbi' accused of sexually abusing adopted sons, faking disability and Jewish conversion


The family of a Texas man accused of sexually assaulting several of his nine adopted sons has come to his defense.


Last month, Hayim Nissim Cohen, 38, was arrested after his 17-year-old adopted son made an anonymous phone call to the "Blind Skinned Beauty" podcast and claimed that his father had molested him since he was first adopted six years ago. Police were able to trace the call to a boy living in Cohen's house, at which point, the boy told officers that he and his brothers had been repeatedly assaulted.


Cohen has adopted nine boys, six of whom are still minors, and until recently had been chronicling their family life on various social media accounts, garnering a sizeable audience. His TikTok account, @our_unique_family, has nearly 200,000 followers. Cohen has presented himself as a Hasidic Jew who made it his life's mission to "to ensure that Jewish foster children are placed in Jewish homes."


The 17-year-old boy's accusations have shattered that image of a happy, observant, "unique" Jewish home, and Harris County prosecutors have followed up those accusations with some serious charges, including several counts of sexual assault of a child and sexual abuse of a child.


However, despite the heinous charges against him, several family members have publicly declared their continued support for Cohen. Cohen's oldest son, Avshalom, 22, stated unequivocally: "My father never abused me. He's a great father that would never hurt any of us. If I saw anything out of order by anyone, I would have done everything in my power to protect my brothers."


Cohen's mother, Corina Lujan, 71, suggested that if her son had molested the boys, some of the them would have likely reported that abuse to their therapist, whom they used to see weekly. "If this alleged sexual abuse had gone on for years as claimed by the prosecutor, why didn't any therapist notice it or know about it?" Lujan asked rhetorically.


Though Lujan was also adamant in her belief in her son's innocence, she did reveal that Cohen, born Jeffrey Vejil, is not a Hasidic Jew from New York City, but a Texas native and a former altar boy in the Catholic church who once dreamed of becoming a priest.


"He came to us one day and said, 'I'm going to convert to Judaism,'" she said, adding that she thought his conversion was "beautiful."


Various Jewish groups have taken issue with Cohen's assumed Jewish identity. One member of the Orthodox Jewish community in Houston, where Cohen now lives, said that many in the community had distrusted Cohen for a long time. "He claimed he was one of those guys who throws rocks on Shabbos, but he doesn’t speak a word of Hebrew or a word of Yiddish," the man said.


"He showed up and claimed some references and assumed no one would check. One of the rabbis checked the references in New York, and it didn’t check out," the man continued.

David Becker of Corrupt Soros Funded ERIC is OUT! Will Not Seek Re-Nomination to Board


David Becker, the democrat operative who founded the ERIC system used in over 30 states with 35m voter records, will not seek re-nomination according to a recent tweet.


The Gateway Pundit has been covering the controversy surrounding the organization tasked with updating the voter rolls in numerous states since its creation by Becker and funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation in 2012.


Becker, who also heads the Election Officials Legal Defense Network and the Center for Election and Innovation Research, has been on the board of the ERIC system since its inception. Recently, Florida, Missouri and West Virginia have all cancelled their contract with ERIC.


The CEIR notoriously received over $69.5 million in “Zuckerbucks” for the 2020 election. Those funds were distributed disproportionately to the “swing states” of the 2020 election: PA ($13.2M), MI ($11.9M), AZ ($4.8M), and GA ($5.6M) received over half of the $64.3 million distributed. The remaining 19 states split the remainder, which averaged to just $1.57M per state.


Becker has claimed that, in the last year, “efforts by election deniers to attack the ERIC have ramped up, and lies have been spread about me and the work of the [CEIR].” He goes on to claim that ERIC is the “best tool to keep voter lists accurate, and combat voter fraud.”


Despite his claims of “accuracy” on the voter lists, The Gateway Pundit reported that Sarah Whitt of the Statewide Voter Registration System uncovered that Wisconsin had over 7 million voters in their database, but only 3.68 million were eligible to vote.


Becker also claimed that “supporting election officials of both parties will continue to be the core work of the [CEIR] and our [EOLDN].”


The EOLDN was started to help connect election officials to pro-bono legal representation if they are to face election crime charges for “just doing their job”. From the EOLDN website:


Across the United States, election officials are enduring harassment, intimidation, and, in some states, exposure to criminal penalties, for simply doing their jobs. EOLDN stands by, ready to connect election officials in need of licensed, qualified, pro bono attorneys who can provide advice or assistance or a communications professional.

U.S. doesn't have operational control of border: Border Patrol chief


Mr. Ortiz also said it's a 'tremendous challenge' to 'repatriate' border crossers to their home countries


U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz told lawmakers on Wednesday that the U.S. border patrol doesn't have operational control of the border.


During a Homeland Security Committee field hearing in McAllen, Texas, House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark E. Green noted that the formal definition of operational control, according to U.S. law, is "the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics and other contraband."


Ortiz was asked if he thought Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was lying last year when he said the U.S. had operational control of the border.


"About ten years ago, we used operational control as a measuring stick of our effectiveness along the southwest border. My new strategy is geared towards mission advantage," Ortiz said.


When asked directly if the U.S. had operational control of the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Ortiz replied, "No, sir."


Ortiz also said the inability to "repatriate" migrants who illegally cross the border back to their home countries has been a "tremendous challenge" during the Biden Administration.


Green said the State Department has allowed the "return agreements" for migrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border to expire rather than renegotiate them.


Green asked Ortiz if those expired agreements have made it harder for law enforcement to send migrants back to their home countries after they cross the border illegally.


"Our inability to repatriate individuals to certain countries in a tremendous challenge. I would have agree with that," Ortiz said.


Ortiz was asked if he supports reinstating the "Remain in Mexico" policy and extending Title 42 restrictions.


"I support any policy that’s going to allow us to repatriate individuals back to their home country," he said.


"Every policy that allows us to repatriate or reduce the flow of migrants is certainly going to increase our operational effectiveness and our ability to control that border," Ortiz also said.


He also addressed accusations that Border Patrol agents had whipped Haitian migrants in 2021.


"I remain proud of the work of our horse patrol units and what we did in Del Rio. As the chief of the Border Patrol, I am ultimately responsible for all operational decisions. To that point and as a senior field commander during that response, I accepted and continue to accept full responsibility for the actions taken," Ortiz said.

Jimmy Kimmel is close friends with Jeffrey Epstein’s associate, former private chef


Kimmel recently called Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers a conspiracy theorist for wanting to know the names on Epstein’s client list.


Jimmy Kimmel, who recently called Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers a conspiracy theorist for wanting to know the names on infamous financier Jeffrey Epstein’s client list, has been revealed to be friends with former Epstein chef Adam Perry Lang.


The connection between Kimmel, Lang, and Epstein was uncovered by internet sleuths and amplified by The Daily Wire's Brett Cooper.


Lang is seen in a number of posts on Kimmel’s Instagram, including most recently the pair being seen at the Oscars behind the scenes, as well as another post of the two gathering for Super Bowl Sunday last month.


In a 2019 Eater report, Lang confirmed that he worked for the convicted sex offender in the early 2000s.


"Almost 20 years ago, as a young chef I was hired to work for Jeffrey Epstein," the chef says in a statement to Eater. "My role was limited to meal preparation. I was unaware of the depraved behavior and have great sympathy and admiration for the brave women who have come forward."


A representative for the chef told Eater that "no further comment will be issued" about his relationship to Epstein.


Unsealed court documents showed that pilot David Roger claimed that he flew Lang and Epstein aboard his private jet on several occasions in 2000 and 2001. The court documents were in regard to alleged Epstein trafficking victim Virginia Giuffre. Flight logs showed that the chef traveled with Epstein to the Virgin Islands, Santa Fe, and Palm Beach.


According to Eater, the pilot also mentioned that Lang had on occasion stayed at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse on East 71st street, and sometimes rode with the pilot and his crew "to or from the airport."


Rodgers explicitly stated that Lang traveled on six flights between 2000 and 2001 as an Epstein passenger. One mAy 2001 flight, Rodgers said, saw Lang fly with Epstein, a close associate and convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, and Maxwell assistant Emmy Tayler.


In December 2020, the pilot said Lang flew with Epstein, Giuffre, MIT professor Marvin Minsky, and Maxwell from Teterboro to the Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned the small island of Little Saint James.


In a September 2020 episode of the podcast Broken: Seeking Justice hosted by journalist Tara Palmeri, it was revealed that Giuffre had attempted to reach Lang about what he may have witnessed while working for Epstein, according to Eater.


Lang told the podcast in a statement that he never witnessed any sexual activity or nudity, and was unaware of any underage girls.


According to the podcast, Giuffre said that Lang served naked girls who were on the property iced tea, water, and fruit platters. Several women Palmieri spoke with remembered Lang at Epstein’s properties, calling him "very polite."


Giuffre reportedly had extended interactions with Lang due to strict diets, saying “I went to the kitchen to go get something and I was starving,” and asked Lang to make her a pizza.


He would have a pizza waiting for me already in the kitchen…we would just have a beer together and eat pizza and just talk. Sometimes I’d help him wash the dishes,” she added. According to Eater, Maxwell reportedly caught wind of the nightly routine, and reprimanded both Lang and Giuffre, making sure they had no more contact.


The podcast episode followed Palmeri and Giuffre as they attempted to deliver to Lang a letter urging him to help those who were abused.

Calgary pastor arrested protesting new law limiting anti-drag show demonstrations


The bylaw, which spawned Wednesday's protest and Tuesday's prayer circle, was passed late Tuesday evening and was the fulfillment of a threat to crack down on anti-drag protests made by Calgary's mayor two weeks ago.


Derek Reimer, pastor at Mission 7 Ministries, was hauled away Wednesday afternoon by police near a Calgary public library while participating in a protest against the city's new "Safe and Inclusive Access Bylaw" which bans "specified protests" within 100 metres of an entrance of a city-affiliated facility.


While any exact reason for the arrest is not yet fully clear, one Calgary police officer involved in the incident can be heard telling Reimer he was “currently under arrest for breaching [his] 200m no-go condition.”


The pastor was also issued a trespass notice at Calgary city hall on Tuesday after silently praying in objection to the new law being debated in chambers.

Aussie store under fire for selling gender fluidity book 'aimed at primary school children'


'Queer Chameleon and Friends' sparks controversy with its illustrations and language promoting gender and sexual orientations to children.


Big W stores have been blasted for selling a book that appears to promote gender fluidity to children.


“Queer Chameleon and Friends” promotes numerous gender ideas as well as sexual orientations using cartoon-like illustrations and simple language.


While listed on the store’s website under the genre “adult”, the book looks very much like it is for children.



A man who posted a video of the book on social media complained: “Look at the way it’s illustrated and the simple language. You can’t tell me this book is not produced and marketed towards young children. It’s aimed at primary school children.”


The book’s chapter headings include “What the Flag”, “Coming Out” and “Beyond the Binary”.


The book lists and explains different gender identities including fluid gender, demi gender intersex gender and transgender and two spirited gender.


It also lists a number of sexual orientations, explaining in simple language what it means to be queer, lesbian omni-sexual, bisexual and gay.


The Big W website lists the book, by British author Amee Wilson, for $16.


Published by Penguin, the book is described as “a vibrant and uplifting collection of comic illustrations about LGBTQ+ life”.


“Queer Chameleon and Friends reminds us that all experiences are valid,” the explanation says.


It “explores aspects of existing in a world not always designed for you – from silly questions and awkward-but-sometimes-accurate clichés, to the trials and tribulations of coming out (or choosing not to)”.

Meet The Seven GOP Senators Who Voted To Confirm Biden Nominee With Ties To Alleged Chinese Communist Intel Groups


Seven Republican Senators voted on Wednesday to confirm Eric Garcetti, President Joe Biden’s nominee for ambassador to India and former Los Angeles mayor, despite his ties to individuals belonging to alleged Chinese Communist Party (CCP) intelligence front groups.


Republican Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Steve Daines of Montana, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee, Roger Marshall of Kansas and Todd Young of Indiana voted to confirm Garcetti following a delay of over 20 months arising from allegations that, while in office, he helped cover up sexual assaults committed by his former aide, Rick Jacobs. The confirmation vote, 52-42, also comes just days after the Daily Caller News Foundation revealed that a mayoral fund set up by Garcetti accepted over $1 million in donations from individuals who belong to alleged CCP influence and intelligence fronts.


“We need an ambassador to India,” Graham told the DCNF.


“As a former U.S. Ambassador to Japan, I know firsthand that this is a critical U.S. diplomatic position,” Hagerty told the DCNF. “Our relations with India are vital to our strategic interests in the Indo-Pacific.”


Cassidy, Collins, Daines, Marshall and Young did not respond immediately to the DCNF’s requests for comment.


Conversely, after the vote, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio told reporters: “I don’t think he’s qualified, especially with all the questions still circling around his previous tenure.”


Shortly after the 2014 founding of the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles — a nonprofit which reportedly allowed donors to further Garcetti’s agenda without donating to his political campaign — the organization began accepting funds from Dominic Ng, president and CEO of East West Bank, and Walter Wang, head of JM Eagle, who both have ties to alleged CCP intel front groups, the DCNF recently reported.


Wang donated $200,000 to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles in 2014 and $1 million in 2020, according to multiple media reports.


Ng, whom Biden appointed to represent the U.S. at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), donated $20,000 to Garcetti’s nonprofit in 2014, according to The Los Angeles Times.
