Demon Sperm Doc’s Pals Launch Twisted New Crusade to Stop Vaccines

  Demon Sperm Doc’s Pals Launch Twisted New Crusade to Stop Vaccines A fringe, pro-Trump medical group perhaps best known for featuring a notorious coronavirus truther fixated on the alleged medical dangers of demon sperm filed a motion demanding the pause of COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States on Monday. Among other wild assertions in the predictably absurd document, the motion seeking an injunction filed by “America’s Frontline Doctors” falsely claims the three vaccines authorized for emergency use in the U.S. do not actually curb the spread of the deadly virus. Also: that the coronavirus is not a public health emergency.

“ After the Summit, the President will spend a few days for an earlier scheduled medical check-up. He is due back by second week of August, 2021,” Adesina said. Embarrassed by the report, Permanent Secretary, State House, Tijjani Umar on Tuesday warned that disclosing confidential information by Aso Villa staff without authorisation will attract penalties under public service rules. According to a statement signed by the Assistant Director Information, State House, Patience Tilley-Gyado, Umar disclosed this at the administration of Oath of Secrecy and Declaration of Secrecy to 42 staff of the State House

The Presidency has administered an oath of secrecy on staff members and threatens severe sanctions on them if they reveal any unauthorized information. The Permanent Secretary, State House, Tijjani Umar on Tuesday in Abuja warned the affected members of staff that disobedience will attract penalties ‘‘But then it’ s our duty to let them understand that if there is any, there will be consequences after investigations and that also includes after they have retired from the Civil Service,’’ he added. According to Umar, the presidency is watching all concerned members of staff closely and there will

ABUJA, Nigeria— Dozens of employees working in the State House, where the offices of Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo are located, were gathered in a room and forced to take an Oath of Secrecy earlier this week because the president’s top aides were “embarrassed” by a Daily Beast report revealing the reasons behind his demand for a nationwide Twitter ban, according to two officials.

The government was open about the mass-oath-taking, billing it as a standard measure meant to avoid any “breach of classified information and documents.”

GOP Lawmakers Want to Cancel Ice Cream After Ben & Jerry’s Fiasco

  GOP Lawmakers Want to Cancel Ice Cream After Ben & Jerry’s Fiasco Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) is among a vexed group of lawmakers coming forward with threats to cancel ice cream after Ben & Jerry’s announced this week it wouldn’t renew its current license agreement with its manufacturer in Israel which also distributes frozen treats to the West Bank. “If Ben & Jerry’s wants to have a meltdown & boycott Israel, OK is ready to respond. Oklahoma has an anti-boycott of Israel law in place,” Lankford wrote on Twitter Wednesday. More than two dozen states have laws opposing boycotts of Israel. The Oklahoma Republican urged his state to “immediately block the sale of all #Benandjerrys” to Oklahomans.

President Joe Biden announced shortly afterwards that a vaccine mandate for federal workers is “under consideration right now,” amid media reports that such a mandate will be announced later this week. On Monday, the Department of Veterans Affairs became the first government department to require its employees – albeit only those who work in a medical capacity – to get vaccinated. The White House previously avoided recommending mandatory inoculation in the workplace, but the Justice Department concluded earlier this week that federal law does not prohibit vaccine mandates by either public or

'She couldn' t take the pressure we put on her': Gloating Russian media say Simone Biles 'let her team down ' after 'refusing' to compete at Tokyo Olympics due to mental health issues. Other media said that Biles had 'refused' to compete, questioning how 'serious' her mental health issues have to be for her to give up on Olympic gold. Others suggested that Biles' 'doping' - she has a medical exemption to take otherwise banned substances due to ADHD - was linked to her 'breakdown'.

It was a quick process which saw at least 42 staff in the Secretariat of the President, Registry of the Vice President, Registry of Chief of Staff to the President, Registry of the Permanent Secretary in charge of the State House, Secret Registry of the State House and the Open Registry take the oath administered by Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Nigeria's capital, Abuja.

“Cumulatively, these members of staff are the ones that from day to day handle some of the most sensitive information going back and forth in our offices and in our environment,” the very influential State House Permanent Secretary, Tijjani Umar, said during the event. “It is very important to us to discharge our responsibility and our obligations and to let them understand that we are going to apply the rules.”

How Vaccine Companies Have Bankrolled Fox News’ Anti-Vaxx Insanity

  How Vaccine Companies Have Bankrolled Fox News’ Anti-Vaxx Insanity With increasing regularity over the past few months, Fox News has peddled vaccine skepticism and at times outright resistance to its millions of viewers, leading critics to accuse the network of “killing people” as large swaths of conservatives refuse to get vaccinated. And it turns out that such dangerous rhetoric has, in effect, been sponsored by the pharmaceutical giants involved in developing, manufacturing, and distributing the very vaccines that Fox News hosts and pundits have railed against on a near-daily basis.

Although Umar claimed that the process was only aimed at assisting “staff who are directly dealing with classified information” at the State House, which “had not recorded any breach of information” since the start of the Buhari administration, two officials working at the establishment informed The Daily Beast that the decision to administer the oath was in reaction to an article published by the news site last month that detailed how Buhari had ordered the suspension of Twitter operations in the country after the social media platform deleted a tweet in which he threatened to “deal with” people in the country’s southeast, who he blames for the assaults on public buildings in the region.

“Those [top aides in the presidency] very close to the president were embarrassed by the revelation by The Daily Beast,” one of the officials told The Daily Beast privately. “They were angry that a private conversation between the president and his close aides was leaked to the media and so they thought administering the Oath [of Secrecy] at this time will prevent State House staff, whom they suspect leaked the conversation, from giving away sensitive information in future.”

Even Dershowitz Took a Pass on Trump’s Big Tech Suit

  Even Dershowitz Took a Pass on Trump’s Big Tech Suit Alan Dershowitz has long been the go-to lawyer for prominent MAGA-world figures who are having trouble with the law—from legal advice to legal punditry. But when it comes to former President Donald Trump’s class-action lawsuit against the social media giants who booted him off their platforms, even Dershowitz is currently keeping his distance this time. And that’s not from a lack of trying from Trump’s legal team. Two people familiar with theAnd that’s not from a lack of trying from Trump’s legal team.

The remark came after Sky News journalist Andrew Clennell demanded Ms Berejiklian admit her strategy had failed to stop the spread of Delta variant, dooming the city to at least four more weeks of lockdown, but possibly more. Clennell asked: 'Will you admit the strategy is failing and this death of 1,000 cuts, a little bit of restrictions every day, is not working and you have to come down hard?' One Twitter user remarked: 'Lets imagine our way out of this crisis? No wonder things are so bad with this kind of leadership (sic)'. Added a second: 'The hubris of this woman is infuriating.'

Thousands took to the streets in two of Greece’ s largest cities to protest new health mandates, which bar the unvaccinated from many public spaces and require medical staff to take the shot, as well as plans to immunize teenagers. The policy takes effect on Friday and will remain at least until the end of August, part of an effort to curb transmission at crowded bars and clubs, which the government has blamed for a recent surge in cases. “ After a year and a half, no one can claim ignorance about the coronavirus anymore,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said earlier this week.

In the article, The Real, Petty Reason This President Ordered a Nationwide Twitter Ban, an official in the Nigeria president’s office told The Daily Beast that Buhari “was furious and wanted to deal with both Twitter and Facebook” after his aides informed him that both platforms had deleted his controversial post in which the president, who is from the Fulani ethnic group in the predominantly Muslim northern region, threatened to unleash war on secessionists in the mostly Christian southeast region made up of people from the Igbo ethnic group.

In the same article published on June 7, a second official revealed that Buhari wanted to shut down both Twitter and Facebook but yielded to pressure from his closest aides not to immediately target the latter, so it was not clear from those officials’ accounts alone if the president’s action was in response to the deleted posts.

But shortly after the story was published, a number of staff at the State House were questioned by top aides to the president about the exposé and warned that they could be punished if there was another leak from the establishment, according to another official working there.

DC Attorney General Moves Ahead With Trump Inauguration Suit

  DC Attorney General Moves Ahead With Trump Inauguration Suit The Attorney General for the District of Columbia will continue investigating whether Donald Trump’s 2017 Inauguration Committee misspent more than $1 million, after discussions to resolve the matter out of court stalled earlier this month. The AG’s office currently has a civil lawsuit against the Inaugural Committee and the Trump Organization. And earlier this month, the case was forced into mediation, a deal-making session in which a neutral negotiator tries to get different sides to come to an agreement. While lawyers met on July 14 to discuss resolving the case out of court, the meeting went nowhere.

“Senior aides to the president suspected the leak was done by a staff member in the president’s office,” the official said. “With the Oath [of Secrecy], the presidency is moving to prevent any future leaks.”

It’s the first time an oath-taking by staff members in the State House has been reported since Buhari took office six years ago though it remains unclear if any public servants have been administered the Oath of Secrecy in private since the start of the administration. The Daily Beast reached out to Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adeshina on the latest development but he didn’t immediately respond to an email sent to him.

The mandated oath-taking in Abuja is a clear sign the Buhari administration is prepared to protect what is said and done by the president by all means. Even the tone of the senior administrator of the State House was apparently enough to create fear in the minds of the people he supervises.

“Government as an institution is held together by laws, by rules and by regulations and those laws, rules and regulations are there to be respected, to be enforced and any breach of that will always carry a consequence,” said Umar, who has been State House Permanent Secretary since March 2020. "There will be consequences after investigations and that also includes after they have retired from the civil service.’’

Angela Tramonte had been in Phoenix for less than 24 hours when she was found dead on a hiking trail last Friday. Now her friends are asking questions about her relationship with an off-duty cop who was with her that day—and who has a documented history of lying.

Friends said the pair had been speaking online for two months, and that it was the first time they met in person.
