(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court ordered the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) to release of additional information about its purchases of organs harvested from aborted human fetuses. The Court also found “there is reason to question” whether the transactions violate federal law barring the sale of fetal organs. Documents previously uncovered in this lawsuit show that the federal government demanded the purchased fetal organs be “fresh and never frozen.”
Both the FDA and NIH purchased the organs from California-based Advanced Biosciences Resources (“ABR”) to create “humanized mice” for use in HIV research. ABR partners with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to dismember fetuses and sell their parts for research. The decision notes that ABR:
sold second-trimester livers and thymi for hundreds of dollars apiece. The same for brains, eyes, and lungs. After tacking on fees for services like shipping and cleaning, ABR could collect over $2,000 on a single fetus it purchased from Planned Parenthood for $60. The federal government participated in this potentially illicit trade for years.
The court raised concern about whether these transactions are legal:
Happily for the Government (and ABR), this means that the Court need not reach Judicial Watch’s argument that the Government cannot withhold the information at issue because ABR engaged in criminal conduct. Recall that it is illegal to transfer “any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration. 42 U.S.C. § 289g-2(a). Judicial Watch contends that the invoices disclosed here show that the Government paid “valuable consideration” to ABR and so the Government cannot keep the withheld information confidential.
The court found it “dubious” that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exception invoked by the government could be used to “shield illegal business practices under the guise of ‘confidential business information’” and declared that “[t]here is reason to question the lawfulness of the transaction between the Government and ABR.”
In ruling in Judicial Watch’s favor, U.S. District Court Judge Trevor N. McFadden ordered HHS to disclose:
Any currently withheld names and addresses of ABR’s contract laboratories
Any redacted unit pricing information for fetal tissue, shipping, or other fees and services relating to the 2013-2015 years that can found in the fee schedules appended to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee report entitled “Human Fetal Tissue Research: Context and Controversy”
Any redacted per-specimen pricing information for the second-trimester fetal tissue relative to the 2016-2018 years
All contracts and related documentation between FDA and ABR for the provision of human fetal tissue to be used in humanized mice research.
All records reflecting the disbursement of funds to ABR for the provision of human fetal tissue to be used in humanized mice research.
All guidelines and procedural documents provided to ABR by FDA relating to the acquisition and extraction of human fetal tissue for its provision to the FDA for humanized mice research.
All communications between FDA officials and employees and representatives of ABR related to the provision by ABR to the FDA of human fetal tissue for the purpose of humanized mice research.
“This court victory will shed additional light on the federal government’s barbaric practice of purchasing organs of aborted human beings,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The American people deserve to know how their tax dollars are being spent on this grotesque and potentially illegal activity.”
In June 2020, Judicial Watch uncovered records from the FDA showing that, between 2012 and 2018, the FDA entered into eight contracts worth $96,370 with ABR to acquire “fresh and never frozen” tissue from first and second trimester aborted fetuses for use in creating “humanized mice” for ongoing research.
In February 2020, Judicial Watch uncovered records from NIH showing that the agency paid thousands of dollars to ABR to purchase organs from aborted human fetuses to create “humanized mice” for HIV research.
The Biden administration recently announced that it would be canceling “Operation Talon,” a program aimed at finding illegal immigrants who had perpetrated sex crimes and removing them from the country.
Why in the world would the Biden administration end such a program? Why would it want to allow opportunities for sex offenders to remain in the country?
It’s difficult to imagine a starker sign of the appalling decadence of America’s elite than this.
A Policy Cancelled Out of Spite
There’s no discernible reason for the cancellation of such a policy other than raw spite and vindictiveness.
Biden, through his dozens of executive orders, has been working to make it as though the Trump administration never happened. But even if people take the fact that the left is opposed to having any sort of border policing whatsoever, the decision to end Operation Talon is appalling.
America has become a long comedy of errors under Democrat Joe Biden, and it is simply humiliating for anyone who wants to be taken seriously. No one wants to laugh at an aged man with dementia. No one wants to be cruel about his obvious decline, but powerful positions require cable and skilled leaders. People are going to talk.
“It is clear US President Joe Biden is not up to the task he has been “sworn in to do,” according to Sky News host Cory Bernardi.
So, Biden is not only a radical far-leftist, he is not mentally fit for President’s office, and now foreign media is saying it out loud. Oh, and calling out our clown show media as well.
Bernardi went on to say that it is something that was “evident” during the election campaign, but the “partisan and poisonous” mainstream media chose not to highlight anything which could have “derailed a Biden victory.” “Even now, after he has been sworn in, many of them are still refusing to speak the truth about Biden’s lack of capacity.”
.” The result was nothing short of a disaster … it was littered with total falsehoods,” Mr. Bernardi said. “It’s all rather pathetic, but even usually smart people are blinded by the nonsense put out by the mainstream media. They believe every perceived sin of Donald Trump while they seem intent on canonizing St. Joe.”
“Not a specific disease, dementia is a group of conditions characterized by impairment of at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgment. Symptoms include forgetfulness, limited social skills, and thinking abilities so impaired that it interferes with daily functioning. Medications and therapies may help manage symptoms.”
Medical experts say there are 7 stages of Dementia.What Are the Seven Stages of Dementia?
Stage 1 (No cognitive decline)
Stage 2 (Very mild cognitive decline)
Stage 3 (Mild cognitive decline)
Stage 4 (Moderate cognitive decline)
Stage 5 (Moderately severe cognitive decline)
Stage 6 (Severe cognitive decline):
Stage 7 (Very severe cognitive decline):
Dementia may produce a group of signs and symptoms that become more severe over time. Some doctors believe that the early warning signs and stages include a decline in memory, counting, reasoning, and language abilities.
Up to 15,000 troops are expected to arrive in Washington, D.C., amid threats of violence leading up to Inauguration Day. By Chris McGonigal and Igor Bobic 01/13/2021 11:34 AM ET | Updated 40 minutes ago
It’s been one week since a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol, and security looks very different now than it did on that deadly day.
Hundreds of armed National Guard members were inside the halls of Congress amid reports of expected violence leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
As lawmakers debated and voted on an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump, battle-ready National Guard troops were camped out amongst the artwork in the Capitol Rotunda, as well as in the Capitol Visitor Center. Many spent the night huddled together sleeping on the marble floors of the building.

At around 7:15pm last Wednesday, on the night of the riots, Georgia was reportedly among a group outside in violation of the District’s 6pm curfew that had been put in place earlier that day to stem the chaos wreaked by the pro-Trump mob.
When officers gave the group several warnings to disperse, Georgia and his group reportedly refused, according to the documents. They were then placed under arrest as a result.

The circumstances surrounding Georgia’s death remain unclear.
The Alpharetta Police Department has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request seeking further comment.
The attack on the US Capitol Wednesday happened as members of Congress met to certify Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.
So far, at least 82 people have been arrested and more than 55 have been charged over the insurrection. Hundreds more are being hunted by the authorities but are yet to be found, including 25 people who are being investigated on terrorism charges.
Others from Georgia arrested so far following the riots are Cleveland Meredith, Grant McHoyt Moore, of Buford, and Eric Munchel, of Dunwoody who is known on social media as ‘zip tie guy.’ So far, at least 82 people have been arrested and more than 55 have been charged over the insurrection, with dozens more being sought after Rioter Ashli Babbit was shot dead after attempting to climb through a shattered window of a barricaded door Cleveland MeredithEric Munchel
Five people also died. One protester, Ashli Babbitt, was shot dead as she attempted to climb through a shattered window of a barricaded door near to the chamber. Three protesters died from ‘medical emergencies’ and one officer, Brian Sicknick, died ‘from injuries sustained’ while responding to the attack. One USCPD officer, Brian Sicknick, died ‘from injuries sustained’ while responding to the attack
Sicknick, 42, was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during a struggle, two law enforcement officials said.
A second member of the Capitol Police, Howard Liebengood, was on duty on Wednesday and died by suicide on Saturday.
Two US Capitol Police officer spoke out yesterday about being subjected to vile racial abuse from members of the MAGA mob as they worked to protect the legislature.
One officer, a veteran of the department, said he was called the N-word upwards of 15 times, while another described being beaten by insurgents, some of whom were wielding Blue Lives Matter flags.
Both of the officers said they encountered out law enforcement officials in the mob, who had flown from all over the country to join in with the rioting.
‘[One guy] pulled out his badge and he said, “We’re doing this for you.” Another guy had his badge. So I was like, “Well, you gotta be kidding”,’ one of the officers said.
Police department across the country – including in Texas, Washington State, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and California – have opened investigations into whether any of their own officers took part in the Capitol siege. So far, several officers and at least one police chief are facing potential termination or suspension.
On Sunday, during an interview with the Epoch Times, attorney Sidney Powell talked about the many irregularities she discovered over the course of her investigation into alleged election-related fraud, and showed a high level of confidence that most of her bombshell claims will soon be confirmed.
“We have counterfeit ballots, we have dead people voting by the thousands, if not, by the hundreds of thousands, there was something someone called ‘phantom voters,’ there was just more manner and means of fraud than any law-abiding American citizen could possibly imagine,” Powell told the Epoch Times. “It’s stunning, it’s absolutely stunning, and they are so in our face with it. And then to deny it is purely Machiavellian.”
“The moneyed interests, the political interests, the global-power elites have been doing this all around the world, where ever they wanted to for at least 15 or 20 years,” Powell asserted. “Our own government has been involved in some of it. It cuts across political lines. There have been some Republicans who have, no doubt, benefitted from it, just as Democrats have. They’re all playing the game. I feel more every day that the Matrix movie was real. It’s that bad.”
“The fact that people are willing to turn a blind eye for this is just horrifying,” Powell said. She gave examples of how the Dominion voting system acts as “insurance” for those who use it to be elected or re-elected. In other words, if the election is going the crooked politician’s way, then they don’t need to use the system, however, if it appears that they are losing the election, then they do use the system to steal it.
Powell said that all of the Dominion voting machines should have been impounded immediately following the election. She believes influence that sits behind the machines runs deep in all branches of our government, and that’s why they weren’t. Why would the guilty take measures to help them get caught?
Powell believes her conclusions will be proven true when the analysis of a recent forensic investigation of Dominion voting machines in Antrim County, Michigan is revealed. There has also been analysis done in Georgia that shows the software flipped votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden on a nationwide scale.
She also believes there’s enough evidence uncovered that shows foreign interference in the 2020 election, enough that President Trump can take executive action that will kickstart a widescale investigation. Powell said she’s hopeful that when Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe gives his report about the election, which according to Trump’s 2018 Executive Order is 45 days from the election, or December 18, he will confirm just about everything she has publicly talked about so far. Remember, the DNI oversees 17 intelligence agencies.
The Executive Order decrees:
“Section 1. (a) Not later than 45 days after the conclusion of a United States election, the Director of National Intelligence, in consultation with the heads of any other appropriate executive departments and agencies (agencies), shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating that a foreign government, or any person acting as an agent of or on behalf of a foreign government, has acted with the intent or purpose of interfering in that election. The assessment shall identify, to the maximum extent ascertainable, the nature of any foreign interference and any methods employed to execute it, the persons involved, and the foreign government or governments that authorized, directed, sponsored, or supported it. The Director of National Intelligence shall deliver this assessment and appropriate supporting information to the President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Defense, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security.
b) Within 45 days of receiving the assessment and information described in section 1(a) of this order, the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the heads of any other appropriate agencies and, as appropriate, State and local officials, shall deliver to the President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Secretary of Defense a report evaluating, with respect to the United States election that is the subject of the assessment described in section 1(a):
(i) the extent to which any foreign interference that targeted election infrastructure materially affected the security or integrity of that infrastructure, the tabulation of votes, or the timely transmission of election results; and
(ii) if any foreign interference involved activities targeting the infrastructure of, or pertaining to, a political organization, campaign, or candidate, the extent to which such activities materially affected the security or integrity of that infrastructure, including by unauthorized access to, disclosure or threatened disclosure of, or alteration or falsification of, information or data.”
Section 3 says:
“Any recommended sanctions shall be appropriately calibrated to the scope of the foreign interference identified, and may include one or more of the following with respect to each targeted foreign person:
(i) blocking and prohibiting all transactions in a person’s property and interests in property subject to United States jurisdiction;
(ii) export license restrictions under any statute or regulation that requires the prior review and approval of the United States Government as a condition for the export or re-export of goods or services;
(iii) prohibitions on United States financial institutions making loans or providing credit to a person;
(iv) restrictions on transactions in foreign exchange in which a person has any interest;
(v) prohibitions on transfers of credit or payments between financial institutions, or by, through, or to any financial institution, for the benefit of a person;
(vi) prohibitions on United States persons investing in or purchasing equity or debt of a person;
(vii) exclusion of a person’s alien corporate officers from the United States;
(viii) imposition on a person’s alien principal executive officers of any of the sanctions described in this section; or
All of this means that the Executive Order that Trump signed in 2018 will have serious ramifications for foreign influence in the 2020 election and other elections going forward, that will bring serious consequences to those foreign actors, and anyone, including American citizens, who supported or received support from said bad actors in other countries.
“If Ratcliffe’s report is an honest report, it’s going to blow the mind of every citizen in the country who’s willing to look at the truth and facts,” she declared.
The report was expected to be released on Friday the 18th, but sources familiar with the situation have said that there’s a dispute within the intelligence community over what should be included in this 2020 ICA. That means the deep staters want things in there to protect the people who may have helped foreign interference to harm Trump. Apparently, a number of senior intelligence analysts are being “adamant” that China tried to influence the 2020 presidential election, as some others are trying downplaying China’s activities during the election. The downplayers are the people who probably bar-b-q with John Brennan.
While some analysts argue that there is “ample raw intelligence” about China’s actions against the election, others are claiming there were minimal efforts by the Communist Chinese Party.
China is our greatest threat today. They want to take America’s place in the world economically, militarily, and influence-wise. It is unamerican to fight to protect Chinese influence over the 2020 election, especially when we just discovered many things about the level of infiltration the Chinese government has inside the United States.
This is your warning not to take a vaccine and not to lay down and do as they tell you for your own good. It is for their easy takeover that you obey. It is NOT FOR YOUR OWN GOOD – it is for their ease of takeover!

A witness in Georgia will be testifying that there were ballots that were different than the official ones.
He will say that the paper is different and the area where you vote is solid grey instead of transparent like the ones the state sent out. He says there were stacks of pristine ballots that appeared to have been marked for Biden by a machine.
Sidney Powell’s lawsuit points out several anomalies of which this is just one, but a very important one. If what he says is true, these ballots were manufactured not by the state, but by someone who wanted to assure that Biden won the election.
The witness claims the ballots did not look like they had ever been handled and the vote could have been added by a copy machine.
Many of the other witnesses claim they saw votes for President Trump were added to the Biden voter pile. Huge stacks of votes were run through the machine and were 100% for Biden and none for our president. That is a mathematical impossibility. Since Powell and Wood only need to prove their case by the preponderance of the evidence, this should be sufficient to affect the election in Georgia.
I noticed that almost all of the ballots I reviewed were for Biden. Many batches went 100% for Biden. I also observed that the watermark on at least 3 ballots were solid gray instead of transparent, leading me to believe the ballot was counterfeit. I challenged this and the Elections Director said it was a legitimate ballot and was due to the use of different printers. Many ballots had markings for Biden only, and no markings on the rest of the ballot.
Another affiant (same witness who gave sworn statement in Wood v. Raffensperger) explained she observed batches of pristine ballots with different texture paper with machine-stamped bubbles that went 98% for Joe Biden:
Most of the ballots had already been handled; they had been written on by people, and the edges were worn. They showed obvious use. However, one batch stood out. It was pristine. There was a difference in the texture of the paper – it was if they were intended for absentee use but had not been used for that purposes. There was a difference in the feel.
These different ballots included a slight depressed pre-fold so they could be easily folded and unfolded for use in the scanning machines. There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had com~ from, or where they had been processed. These stood out.
This is shaping up to be a real knock down drag out fight. Trending today

Once in awhile one of these elitists who like to lecture everybody on ethical and moral grounds will open up their mouths and give us a true glimpse into their souls. Such was the case last night with Bette Midler, who was driven to show us how she really felt about people who do not look or sound like her when she watched the First Lady speak.
Entertainer Bette Midler was ripped on social media after mocking Melania Trump‘s accent during the first lady’s Republican National Committee speech from the Rose Garden late Tuesday and for referring to her as an “illegal alien.”
This is ironic, of course, because Trump supporters have been labeled as racists, Xenophobes, and white supremacists by people like Bette Midler for four years now. Actually the attacks go back even further than that, the same was said about anybody who opposed…
“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
