“An appeals court in New York has reinstated the gag order imposed on former President Donald Trump by Justice Arthur Engoron, rejecting the former president’s bid to avoid restrictions on his freedom to speak about aspects of his civil fraud trial that he has denounced as politically motivated.
In an order issued on Nov. 30, a four-judge panel of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Appellate Division, overturned a temporary suspension of the gag order, which initially was imposed by Justice Engoron on Oct. 3.
The newly reimposed gag order prohibits President Trump from making public statements about the judge’s staff…”
“Two Republican officials in rural Arizona have been criminally charged for delaying the certification of the 2022 election results, the state’s top prosecutor announced on Wednesday.
A state grand jury returned an indictment charging Peggy Suzanne Judd, 61, of Willcox, and Terry Thomas “Tom” Crosby, 64, of Sierra Vista with the felony offenses of Interference with an Election Officer and Conspiracy. Judd and Crosby both currently serve as supervisors in Cochise County, which runs along the U.S.-Mexico border…
The indictment, filed Monday in Maricopa County Superior Court, alleges that on or between Oct. 11-Dec. 1, 2022, Judd and Crosby conspired to delay the canvass of votes cast in Cochise County in the November election. Prosecutors allege that Judd and Crosby knowingly interfered with the Arizona Secretary of State’s ability to complete the statewide canvass for the 2022 election, by preventing the canvass of votes from Cochise County from occurring during the time period required by Arizona law.”
Analyst Comment: This will be an important case to watch: Do Supervisors in AZ have a right to refuse to certify an election over veracity concerns, or are they required to rubber stamp every election?

A federal judge orders Kansas state troopers to stop violating the constitution by illegally extending traffic stops. Since the 2015 Rodriguez case, the Supreme Court placed restrictions on how long a police stop can be. Rather than comply with the ruling, Kansas highway patrol sought to circumvent it: Officers would end a stop by starting to walk away from a car, then turn around and re-engage. They claimed this was a second stop and therefore not subject to the detention length restrictions.
Analyst Comment: This is another example of systemic abuse by police. The police have a “few bad apples” claims by some do not accurately describe police abuses like this. Here, every level of the Kansas highway patrol – from top leaders down to patrol officers – conspired to violate the constitution rather than respect citizen’s rights.

Chinese Biolab in California Update From CA Congressman Kevin Kiley: “Following the discovery of a secret, illegal Chinese bio lab in California, I requested an investigation by the House. Yesterday, the Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party released its highly disturbing report.
The lab was run by an international fugitive from China named Jiabei ‘Jesse’ Zhu. After running various state-connected companies in China, he moved to Canada, where he set up dozens of corporations to ‘steal valuable American intellectual property and unlawfully transfer’ it to China.
The Supreme Court of British Columbia found he committed ‘fraud on an epic scale,’ resulting in a $330 million judgment. He then fled to America, assumed the alias David He, and set up several more companies, including the one behind the bio lab.
The lab was discovered nearly a year ago, when a code inspector came upon a suspicious warehouse in Reedley, CA. Inside, she found many Chinese nationals ‘wearing white lab coats, glasses, masks, and latex gloves,’ along with ‘thousands of vials of biological substances’ and 1,000 mice.
It was later learned these were ‘transgenic’ mice ‘genetically engineered to catch and carry the COVID-19 virus.’ A further inspection found ‘blood, tissue and other bodily fluid samples and serums’ along with thousands of vials of ‘suspected biological material.’ Some of the vials were labeled with the names of infectious agents, while others were labeled in a ‘code’ that was never deciphered.
At first, the CDC refused to investigate, and even hung-up on local officials who asked for help. After the local Congressman got involved, the CDC did an inspection and found ‘at least 20 potentially infectious agents, including HIV, Tuberculosis, and the deadliest known form of Malaria.’
Yet the CDC did not bother to test any samples, even those with unknown contents, making it ‘impossible for the Select Committee to fully assess the potential risks that this specific facility posed to the community.’ The Select Committee report calls this ‘baffling.’ Later, local officials discovered a refrigerator in the lab labeled ‘Ebola.’
While the supposed purpose of the lab was to sell test kits, in fact all the company did was buy counterfeit kits from China and re-sell them in the United States. Thus, there was a ‘lack of apparent legitimate (or even profit-motivated criminal) motive in the operation of the illegal facility.’
This raises the question as to the true purpose of the lab – especially given that Jesse Zhuhe, its criminal operator, was ‘receiving unexplained payments via wire transfer’ from Chinese banks. The report further notes that ‘no one knows whether there are other unknown biolabs because there is no monitoring system in place.'”
“Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) announced on Nov. 16 that he wouldn’t run for reelection, less than an hour after the House Ethics Committee released its report finding that there was ‘substantial evidence’ that Mr. Santos had violated federal law…

“Nebraska lawmakers have created a state Health Information Technology (HIT) Board to collect health information on all Nebraskans in a centralized data and surveillance system that, according to lawmakers, will be used by doctors to improve patient care.
But critics warn the system marks a step toward the oppressive control of digital ID and digital currency that could sweep the U.S.
The Nebraska Legislature in 2020 voted unanimously to create the Nebraska HIT Board, composed of 17 members appointed by the governor and confirmed by a majority vote of the legislature…
The state law that created the HIT Board designates CyncHealth, a regional health data utility (HDU) that manages the data of more than 5 million patients in more than 1,100 healthcare facilities across the Midwest, to centralize and administer the information on Nebraska’s health exchange.
CyncHealth says its mission is to create a comprehensive health record for every patient that is instantly accessible to patients, their doctors, nurse practitioners, radiologists and other health professionals.
The patient health records include patient histories, physicals, discharge summaries, immunization records, radiology, lab and pathology results and ordering, medication history, allergies and advance directives.”
“Ukrainian police and prosecutors have accused two politicians and a former prosecutor of treason, saying they colluded with a Russian intelligence agency in aiding an effort by Rudolph W. Giuliani several years ago to tie the Biden family to corruption in Ukraine.

The British Medical Journal alleges that after interviewing a dozen health officials, they’ve determined that: “FDA and CDC essentially maintain two separate VAERS databases: a public facing database, containing only initial reports; and a private, back end system containing all updates and corrections—such as a formal diagnosis, recovery, or death.”
Further, the CDC often does not investigate catastrophic reactions to the Covid vaccine as required by law.
