#9 The Latest Attempts to Discredit Hydroxychloroquine as a Treatment for COVID-19 - Tracy Beanz and Michelle Edwards for The High Wire
By now, one can quickly see the obvious motive behind inaccurate, peer-reviewed studies such as this one attacking HCQ. Well-loved and esteemed doctors like Dr. Paul Marik saved many lives with HCQ and almost lost their entire practice to do so. In early 2022, as reported by Thomas Lifson, the honored Dr. Ben Carson shared with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that “we now effectively know that early (off-label) use of the anti-parasite/anti-malarial drugs Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin (IVM) can have a significant effect on reducing COVID mortality.” Pointing out the lack of accurate studies related to repurposed drugs for profitable pandemics.

#8 Dr. Ladapo – mRNA Shots Have a Passport into Human Cells - Steve Middendorp for The High Wire
The Florida Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, has called for a halt to the use of all mRNA COVID-19 vaccines on the market. This comes after the FDA responded to Dr. Ladapo and did not alleviate his concerns regarding DNA integration. The call to halt administration comes less than two weeks after Del Bigtree interviewed Dr. Ladapo regarding his concerns with the human genome. “With these mRNA vaccines, you’ve basically got a passport into human cells,” Dr. Ladapo stated on The HighWire. “So, whereas in the past, DNA would have a hard time ever getting into a cell, let alone getting into the nucleus of the cell, now you have these lipid nanoparticles that everyone is very excited about with the mRNA vaccines, that they carry mRNA in, but they almost certainly also carry DNA into the cells. So, it completely changes the risk analysis. And this risk, however low it may be, is one that the FDA has acknowledged in the past, and somehow they think that they can get away with not assessing this time, and it’s totally not gonna happen.”

#6 CNN Guest Offers Brutal Takedown of Biden, Says the 'Old Man' Is Telling 'Ghost Stories' - by C. Douglas Golden for The Western Journal
It’s bad enough that, appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Republican strategist Brad Todd dismissed this kind of talk as “ghost stories.” The remark came up while the panel was discussing former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s brag that he’s getting booed for telling Republican voters “what they need to hear and what they deserve to hear,” according to a CNN transcript. “I have never heard a candidate go on TV and brag about being booed,” host Jake Tapper said, according to a transcript of the show. “Although I don’t want to dismiss — he does get booed for telling the truth, or at least for being critical of Donald Trump.” “He’s tried everything else,” Todd said. “So he has to try this now.”

Which is why I’m suspending my campaign tonight for President of the United States."

#4 US Economy Starting to Look 'More Like the 1970s,' JPMorgan Chase's Jamie Dimon Says - Kristen Altus for Fox Business

Despite a generally optimistic outlook for the U.S. markets in the new year, the head of one of the country’s biggest banks is seemingly not convinced the Federal Reserve can achieve a soft landing as a result of their most aggressive rate hike campaign since the 1980s. During an exclusive interview on "Mornings with Maria" Tuesday, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon warned about the possibility of a looming recession while comparing the financial state to the turbulent period of 50 years ago when the nation endured a decade of high inflation. "I look at a lot of things and forget just economic models for a second, $2 trillion of fiscal deficit, the infrastructure and IRA act, the green economy, the re-militarization of the world, the restructuring of trade are all inflationary," he told host Maria Bartiromo. "And that looks a little more like the 1970s to me."

Ron DeSantis, touting the governor’s leadership that his presidential campaign says will be played at all events going forward. Billy Dean, a member of the Florida Music Hall of Fame with 3 certified gold albums and 11 Billboard country music top hits to his credit, recorded a song called "Never Back Down," which the DeSantis team used to produce a music video supporting the governor. "The fight is tough, you gotta stand your ground, and if you still believe in the American Dream, then never back down, never back down, never back down, and if you still believe in living free, never back down," Dean sings in the song. 


 

#2 A Tale of Two Protests: Lafayette Park Versus Jan 6th - Wendi S. Mahoney for UncoverDC
While the conversation that swirls around the Capitol protest on Jan. 6, 2021, is robust, often contentious, and rife with speculation, the silence regarding the Lafayette Park protests is deafening. No one talks about them. The contrast is stark, particularly as it relates to how justice is being delivered after the two events. Many Americans either do not know or have forgotten that the Lafayette Park protests inflamed by George Floyd's death raged on for four days steps from the White House between May 29 and Jun. 1, 2020. It is curious indeed. Even "curiouser" is the weaponization of our justice system unfolding before our very eyes, with little or no comment from a majority of Americans in real life.

#1 Trump 14th Amendment Political Challenger Arrested on Federal Tax Charges - Nick Robertson for The Hill

A Texas man who filed more than two dozen challenges to former President Trump’s ballot eligibility was arrested on charges alleging he filed 17 sets of false tax documents to the IRS. John Anthony Castro was indicted last week on 33 counts of aiding the preparation of false tax returns. Prosecutors claim he ran a virtual tax preparation business that provided customers with tax returns beyond what they were actually owed, defrauding the government. Castro is also a 2024 GOP presidential candidate, a long-shot bid that has gained little attention outside his legal challenges to Trump’s ballot eligibility. Castro has filed challenges to Trump’s ballot placement in 27 states, claiming that Trump’s involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots violates the 14th Amendment.

When Dog Shelter Makes Appeal for Homes as Temps Plummet Below Zero People Arrive in Droves

An animal shelter in Krakow was left without words after a weekend of action saw lines out of the door of people who came in to temporarily adopt a dog in the face of an onrushing cold front. Dubbed “Operation Frost,” the KTOZ Schronisko, or animal shelter, asked on Friday the 5th if anyone interested in adopting a dog could come in immediately as the weather over the first weekend of January was predicted to fall to -5°F. “Due to the fact that some of our animals live in kennels, we urgently need to make room for them in a closed pavilion,” the shelter wrote on Facebook, according to a proprietary translation from Polish.
