GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/28/2023 - 01:32

Authorities on Friday evening released bodycam footage of five Memphis police officers beating motorist Tyre Nichols during a traffic stop.

Five ex-Memphis police officers were charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping on Thursday in the death of a black motorist.

The officers, Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith – were fired on Friday after the motorist, Tyre Nichols, died following a violent confrontation during a January 7 traffic stop.

Black people are not immune to anti-Black messages

One of the sad facts about anti-Black racism is that Black people ourselves are not immune to its pernicious effects. Society’s message that Black people are inferior, unworthy and dangerous is pervasive. Over many decades, numerous experiments have shown that these ideas can infiltrate Black minds as well as White. Self-hatred is a real thing.

That’s why a Black store owner might regard customers of his same race with suspicion, while treating his White patrons with deference. Black people can harbor anti-Black sentiments and can act on those feelings in harmful ways.

Black cops are often socialized in police departments that view certain neighborhoods as war zones. In those departments, few officers get disciplined for dishing out “street justice” in certain precincts — often populated by Black, brown or low-income people — where there is a tacit understanding that the “rulebook” simply doesn’t apply.

Suicide Pact: Minnesota Democrats Pass Bill to Ban Coal, Oil and Gas in One of Nation’s Coldest States – As Biden Bans Mining in State’s Iron Range

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/28/2023 - 01:15


CBS Local Minnesota

It should be clear by now that the Democrats are leading the nation into rapid collapse

Democrats in Minnesota banned coal, oil and gas after passing historic legislation in the state House of Representatives on Thursday.

Democrats hold a 34-33 advantage in the Minnesota State Senate.
Democrats hold a 70-64 advantage in the Minnesota State House of Representatives.

And the legislation will cause electricity prices to skyrocket.

This comes at the same time that Joe Biden banned mining in the Iron Range, a Democrat-dominant working-class area in north-eastern Minnesota.

The new energy infrastructure in Minnesota will ban mining here at home as Biden struck a deal with African nations who use child labor and China where they use slave labor.

All in the name of climate change – the new religion of the left.

Alpha News reported:

The Minnesota House passed legislation after seven hours of debate late Thursday night that would require the state’s electricity grid to be 100% carbon-free in 17 years.

This is an unrealistic timeline that could endanger the lives of Minnesotans if it fails while causing their electricity bills to skyrocket, Republicans argued throughout the night.

They unsuccessfully offered several amendments to the bill, including lifting the state’s moratorium on new nuclear power plants, allowing for the use of carbon sequestration technologies, and delaying the standard to consider its impact on child and slave labor in the green energy supply chain.

“Frankly, what this bill will be doing today is making Minnesota reliant on nations around the globe that have no labor standards and no environmental standards. Minnesota in this bill will build a clean grid economy on the backs of child slaves in China and poor environmental regulations in Indonesia and the Congo,” Rep. Spencer Igo, R-Wabana Township, said at a press conference ahead of the debate.

He said the resources to build a clean energy future are right in Minnesota’s backyard, yet the federal government has now banned mining on 250,000 acres of the Iron Range.

“The third-largest deposits of copper, nickel and cobalt that exist in the known world are only 250 miles north of this Capitol. Instead of investing in those resources … we have decided to export it around the world where carbon emissions will be 20, 25, or 30 times higher than if we were to do it here in Minnesota,” he continued.

Observations on the Paul Pelosi/David DePape Videos – What Looks Weird and What’s Missing?

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/28/2023 - 01:00

On Friday three videos related to the Paul Pelosi hammer attack at the Pelosi home were released.  The entire event was weird and it just got weirder.

Three long-awaited videos came out earlier today related to the attack on Paul Pelosi in the early morning of October 28, 2022.

These videos are discussed below in the order in which they occurred:

DePape Enters the Home

The first video is the security camera footage from that night outside the Pelosi home.  This was released by FOX News.  The time stamp on this video is at 5:06 on October 28th.  The reason for this difference is likely because the video came from the US Capitol Police who had cameras on the Pelosi house because Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House at the time.  This time would be eastern time which would be 2:06 Pacific in San Francisco.

Fox News obtained footage of David DePape busting the window with a hammer before entering the home.

VIDEO:
Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

This video starts at 5:04 am mark showing David DePape walking around the house with nothing in his hands.  He looks right at the surveillance camera and then leaves and comes back with a large backpack on his back and a large bag in his left hand.  The video then shows DePape hitting a back window with a hammer over and over and eventually stepping through the window and into the house.

What was weird was seeing DePape looking right at the camera, leaving, and then coming back with his backpack and bag.

We also don’t know if he came back to grab his bags or what after he entered the house.  The video ends there.  We have no video of DePape in the house at this time. 

The biggest question is how could DePape walk around the house and hammer on a window and break into the house and not trigger any surveillance motion detectors causing a visit from the police.

The 911 Call

The second video jumps to a 911 call that Paul Pelosi made to authorities early that morning.  This call occurred at 2:23 am or a little more than 10 minutes after DePape entered the house.

This call sounds like a man who is calling for help.  What is very odd is that DePape is there listening to the call.  He even offers his name.

And here is Paul Pelosi’s 911 call. pic.twitter.com/IyHHfvPQcg

— Greg Price (@greg_price11) January 27, 2023

So was the 911 operator really this dense? Did she have any idea who Nancy Pelosi is? Did she not understand this man was in serious trouble?

When the police arrived, they did not appear to be in a hurry to get into the home. They did not act like this was an assault on Nancy Pelosi’s home, the third in line to the presidency at that time

The Police Camera

The third video was the police camera footage from one of the policemen on the scene at the Pelosi residence that morning.  The time stamp shows at 9:32 am.  If this is Greenwich Mean Time and the time zone was daylight savings time, then this would have been 2:32 am in San Francisco or about 9 minutes after the 911 call.

This is a very disturbing video showing Paul Pelosi attacked by DePape with a hammer and the police officers’ reaction to it.

Some observations are that Paul Pelosi is in his underwear and DePape appears to be in the same outfit he was recorded in outside when breaking glass in the back door.

Another observation is that we really don’t know who opened the door.  Paul Pelosi had the hammer in his right hand and a drink in his left.  DePape had the hammer in his right hand which was closest to the door.  The door opens but did Paul Pelosi open the door while holding his drink?

Something else odd is that Paul Pelosi held on to the hammer and did not run when the police arrived.  Maybe because he was drunk?

It also appears that video footage is missing from this video.  The video stops with both men on the ground.  We don’t know what happened after that point in time.

HERE IS THE VIDEO….

We don’t know why DePape went there.  He appears to be crazy.  It does look like Paul Pelosi is lucky to be alive after taking a hammer to the head.  

Overall the entire incident is weird and very disturbing.  We pray that Paul Pelosi fully recovers from the attack.

19-Year-Old WSU Student Found Dead in His Dorm – No Evidence of Foul Play Involved

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/28/2023 - 00:45

A freshman student from Washington State University (WSU) was found dead in his dorm room on Sunday, Jan. 22.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, a male student was found dead in his dorm room at Perham Hall on the Pullman campus, according to WSU police Assistant Chief Dawn Daniels.

The student was later identified by the Whitman County Coroner’s Office as 19-year-old Luke Morgan Tyler.

Chief Gary Jenkins of the WSU Police Department stated it would be premature to speculate on the cause of death until the investigation is completed.

According to the police, there is no evidence of foul play involved in Tyler’s death.

According to Jenkins, the WSU Police Department is conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Tyler’s death in coordination with the Whitman County Coroner.

“It’s worth mentioning that there has been a significant amount of conjecture regarding the circumstances surrounding this incident and the actual cause of the student’s passing. I would caution the public against speculation at this point in the investigation,” said Phil Weiler, Vice President at Washington State University.

“The facts in this case are still being gathered. It could be several weeks before the coroner’s office determines the cause and manner of death. We want to ensure that the investigation can proceed unimpeded,” Weiler continued.

According to Spokesman, nearly 8,000 people had signed a petition created by Tyler’s friends on Wednesday evening, demanding that Tyler’s fraternity, Theta Chi, be investigated in connection with his death.

A fundraising campaign was created to cover the cost of Luke’s funeral for his family. You can help donate here.

WSU Chancellor Elizabeth S. Chilton issued the following statement via KREM 2:

“Dear Cougs,

I continue to be heartbroken over the student death that occurred in a residence hall on our campus over the weekend. The loss of a member of our Cougar family creates a tremendous loss for all of us, and I want to extend my deepest condolences to the student’s family, friends, classmates, and fellow Cougs.

In the tragic case of any student death, WSU has a strict protocol to follow with procedures that were put in place out of respect for both the families and the investigative process. Arguably the most important element of this protocol is the direct outreach from our Dean of Students Office to the family and friends of the decedent. I’m very thankful for the incredible work and ongoing support services provided by our Dean of Students in this case, and overall.

WSU Pullman will not release any information about the individual until details have been coordinated with the family and the Whitman County Coroner’s Office. We will always maintain a high level of respect for both the families and investigative process, and will not disclose any information that could inadvertently disrupt this process.

I understand that during trying times a lack of information often leads to confusion and questions. I urge everyone to avoid speculation about this incident so that the investigation may proceed unimpeded. We anticipate that the coroner’s office will release more information, including the cause and manner of death, in the coming weeks.

As we all process this tragic incident, I want to remind everyone that we are here for you, and that support services are available. Please visit our Crisis Support Resources page to learn more.”

David DePape Interrogation Interview Released – Even DePape Knew the 2020 Election Was Stolen

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/28/2023 - 00:30

David DePape’s interrogation audio three days after his arrest was released this evening.  

David DePape was arrested after hitting Paul Pelosi over the head with a hammer in the early morning of October 28, 2022.  Three days after his arrest he was interrogated.  Parts of this interrogation were released today.

FOX KTVU shared the audio:

David DePape admitted to attacking Paul Pelosi and told San Francisco police that he intended to hold Nancy Pelosi hostage, according to a recording of his interrogation made public Friday.

While speaking to a special investigator, DePape, 42, espoused conspiracy theories focused on the Democratic Party and Nancy Pelosi, who at the time was the speaker of the House.

Authorities had previously described DePape’s statement, including that he wanted to break Nancy Pelosi’s kneecaps, shortly after he was arrested at the Pelosis home on Oct. 28. But this is the first time the public can hear DePape’s response to the officer’s questions.

Earlier today body camera footage showing DePape apparently assaulting Pelosi, a recording of Pelosi speaking with a 911 operator and surveillance footage showing someone identified as DePape breaking into the Pacific Heights home were all released.

DePape admitted to being the attacker and explained how he broke into the house. He also stated that he too believed that the Democrats stole the election from Trump. He said he viewed Nancy Pelosi as one of the biggest liars in the country.

FOX KTVU shared an excerpt of the back-and-forth between DePape told the detective. The dialogue was edited for clarity and length.

POLICE: Do you know why you’re in custody?

DEPAPE: Absolutely.

I want to make sure you’re OK… How did you end up there today? 

I know exactly what I did.

Was there a reason? Did you feel the Pelosis did something to you? 

Not me specifically to me. But to the American public honestly. She was the leader of the pack. 

How so? 

Fucking liars. It’s insane. She has to be like….(unintelligible) with Trump being in office. What they did was so far beyond. It’s just crazy…. It originates with Hilary. But Pelosi ran the lie, day in and day out. The person on TV lying every day was Pelosi. 

This is a record-breaking crime spree, the Democratic Party.. They are criminals. They were submitting fake evidence to spy on rival campaigns….yeah, Trump. …It’s an endless fucking crime spree.. until they were able to steal the election.

What was your intention? Was your intention to make her change her ways? 

Well, I was going to basically hold her hostage. And I was going to talk to her.

Do you regret that you did this?

No, it needed to be done.  

But Paul, the person you attacked, is not a target. Do you know how many times you hit him?

No clue. I swung at him. 

[When the police arrived] Why didn’t you just leave? 

Like the founding fathers. It’s like they fought the British, They fought the tyranny. When I left my house, I went to fight tyranny.

Here is the 17-minute interview that has been released.  It appears that there may be more to this interview as it doesn’t end smoothly:

Asst. Principal Solicited Donations from Teachers and Staff to Pay Off Coyote for Illegal Alien Student in Rhode Island High School

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 23:51

An assistant principal at Mount Pleasant High School in Providence, Rhode Island sent an email to teachers and staff this week soliciting donations to pay off the debt to a coyote owed by an illegal alien student at the school. The email by Dr. Stefani Harvey asked for $2000 by February 1st to help pay off the $5000 debt to the smuggler. On Friday school principal Tiffany Delaney shut down the fundraiser as “not appropriate” and said donations would be refunded.

Text of Assistant Principal Stefani Harvey’s email (Harvey’s Twitter bio reads: “Black educator, queer, activist, poetry, Roxbury bred, save our streets, dismantle school to prison pipeline, I hear you, speak your truth.”):

Hello Team:

Please see the message below regarding your consideration for an urgent matter to support one of our own students here at Mount.

We have a student who came to America with ‘Coyote,’ which is a group that helps people. This group gives you a time frame to make a payment of $5,000 to those, who bring them to the states. Our student needs our urgent support to raise another $2,000 to reach his goal of $5,000 by February 1, 2023.

Please consider helping if you can by donating on Friday. Melanea will be around to collect money.

Text of Principal Tiffany Delaney’s email:

I was informed there was an email seeking financial support for one of our students. I appreciate the faculty and staff contributing to a cause that supports a student, but the nature of the request is not appropriate. All funds contributed will be returned and we will seek more appropriate methods to support our students.

The email were posted online by a concerned parent school activist in Rhode Island, Nicole Solas. Authenticity of the email was confirmed by the president of the Providence Teachers Union Maribeth Calabro in a radio interview Friday morning with Matt Allen on WPRO-AM/FM. Calabro said some teachers thought the email was a hoax but that after discussions they realized it was serious and was told by school officials it was real.

A producer for Tucker Carlson contacted the school, “I called the school about the vice principal who was raising money for a human trafficker. I wanted to know if the police are involved and how common this is. The person who responded refused to give her name, said they are investigating themselves, and hung up the phone.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported a school spokesperson claimed the email was a hoax:

“That is a fake email. We are on top of that. We are trying to figure out who generated that and why. We do not have a student that is being human trafficked,” the school official, who did not identify themselves, told the DCNF.”

Last October the school opened a food pantry on campus for students and their immediate family, reported WJAR-TV (excerpt):

A new school-based food pantry at Mt. Pleasant High School promises to ensure students to get the nutrition they need.

“I am so super excited over this food pantry. This is an opportunity for us to help the families here at Mt. Pleasant, something I’ve been deeply wanting to do,” said Tiffany Delaney, principal at Mt. Pleasant High School.

“80% of the students at Mt. Pleasant High School are identified as economically disadvantaged,” said Johanna Corcoran, executive director at We Share Hope, a nonprofit organization that retrieves surplus food for those in need. It is behind this initiative.

…”There are a lot of students that sometimes, honestly, this is their only meal, so they come here for breakfast and lunch, and this is just an extension of what we’ll be able to offer them,” said Delaney.

This food pantry will be open to all students at the high school and their immediate family during school hours two days a week.

Harvey joined Mount Pleasant about a year ago according to a school newsletter dated January 24, 2022 (excerpt):

In early December, we welcomed Assistant Principal Dr. Stefani Harvey to MPHS. Dr. Harvey was most recently the Redesign Fellow at Hope High School and previously worked in several building and central office administrative roles in the Boston Public School system. Dr. Harvey brings many years of experience with her to Mr. Pleasant. Dr. Harvey will work directly with 10th grade families and various departments at MPHS>

Terrorist On Murderous Rampage Kills 7, Injures Others in Shooting at Jerusalem Synagogue

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 23:20

As the Jewish Sabbath was just underway, a terrorist on a murderous rampage killed 7 and injured others in a shooting outside a synagogue in Jerusalem Friday night.  The attacker, alleged to be a 21-year-old Palestinian man from East Jerusalem,  was killed by police while trying to escape.

A 14-year-old boy is among the fatalities.

Police said the attack was one of the worst Israel has seen in years. A police spokesman shared, “The attacker is a resident of East Jerusalem. We are completing operations at the scene. Right now, unfortunately, we are talking about seven people killed and another three seriously wounded.”

The Times of Israel reports:

According to police, the terrorist arrived by car at 8:13 p.m. at a building used as a synagogue in the neighborhood in the northern part of East Jerusalem and opened fire at people outside the synagogue and other passersby.

The attacker then fled the scene by car toward the Palestinian neighborhood of Beit Hanina — several hundred meters away — where he encountered officers who were called to the scene.

Police said the terrorist — a resident of East Jerusalem — was shot dead after he exited the car and opened fire on the officers while trying to escape on foot.

A handgun used in the attack was seized.

According to Channel 12 news, the terrorist first shot an elderly woman in the street, then encountered a motorcycle rider and shot him, before reaching the synagogue and opening fire at people outside.

Speaking to reporters from the scene, police commissioner Kobi Shabtai said the attack was one of the worst Israel had seen in years.

“The terrorist shot at everyone he encountered. He got out of the car and began a murderous rampage with a handgun,” Shabtai said.

With seven killed, the shooting in Jerusalem was the deadliest terror attack since 2011, when terrorists crossed into Israel from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, killing eight Israelis. The last deadliest Palestinian terror attack was in 2008, when a gunman from East Jerusalem killed eight Israeli students at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in the capital.

Gateway Pundit Exclusive: Interview With Justin Goodman of White Coat Waste Project, The Person Who Exposed Anthony Fauci’s NIH Funding Of The Wuhan Institute Of Virology and Other Overseas Animal Experiments

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 23:00

Justin Goodman is the Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Public Policy at White Coat Waste Project, a government watchdog group dedicated to finding, exposing, and defunding $20 billion in wasteful government spending on animal experiments.

In an exclusive interview with TGP’s Cullen Linebarger, he describes the ways the NIH under Anthony Fauci used taxpayer dollars to torture and kill animals for years, especially overseas. He also explains how White Coat Waste Project was able to expose NIH’s funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where the pandemic almost certainly originated from, and discusses the victories WCWP has secured to save animals and American taxpayer dollars.

The following is a transcript of the interview:

TGP: The first question I have is specifically for our readers at Gateway Pundit. Can you tell us a little about the organization, its founding, and what its ultimate mission is?

Goodman: Sure, White Coat Waste Project is a government watchdog group that is dedicated to finding, exposing, and defunding $20 billion in wasteful government spending on animal experiments. We were founded by Anthony Bellotti, our president who actually worked in an animal laboratory as a teenager and was so horrified by what he saw he committed to one day coming back to the issue and working to cut waste and abuse in government funded labs. He started White Coat in 2013 to build a new movement of liberty lovers and animal lovers who would join forces to fight against the torture of puppies and kittens by the federal government.

We’re a big tent group with no litmus test. We work with members of Congress from the Freedom Caucus to the Squad and everybody in between. We are the only group that successfully unites those diverse constituencies on Capitol Hill to fight against this problem.

TGP: When you joined in 2016, you were on Dr. Anthony Fauci from the very beginning along with the National Institute of Health.

Goodman: Absolutely. Our very first investigation when we launched our campaign in 2016 was a report called “Spending to Death.” This was an expose of dog testing inside the government’s own laboratories in the Beltway. And what we found back then was that agencies including the NIH, the VA, and the FDA were torturing hundreds of dogs each year in wasteful experiments. One of the laboratories that we exposed in that investigation was in Anthony Fauci’s in-house laboratories at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). And those experiments all involved taking beagle puppies, strapping capsules full of sandflies to their bare skin so that the insects could bite them. We even obtained photographs of that though the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

TGP: This was in the United States, but I was actually going to ask about this happening in Tunisia later.

Goodman: They’re connected. Anthony Fauci’s division at the NIH has one of the largest budgets of the entire agency. They have over $6 billion a year of taxpayer funds that they waste on useless experimentation. Mostly which involves animals. Our BeagleGate campaign has exposed the extensive testing on puppies and dogs that have been funded by NIAID both in the US and abroad including the studies in Tunisia.

When we launched that campaign back in 2016, we were the first group in history to shut down dog testing across an entire federal agency. As a result of these defund efforts since then, we have completely ended dog testing across the entire Department of Veterans Affairs through gradually tightening the reigns and making it more difficult for the agency to spend taxpayer dollars on these cruel, wasteful experiments. Now we’re trying to take that success we had at defunding dog testing at the VA and do the same thing at the NIH, which is the single largest funder of animal testing in the world.

TGP: In the beginning, White Coat focused on the abuse of animals in domestic research. Can you tell me what was the impetus to expand your focus to what was going on in overseas nations like Russia and China?

Goodman: Great question. In 2018, we were leading a campaign against a USDA laboratory in Maryland that we called the Kitten Slaughterhouse. We exposed that government experimenters were using taxpayer money to fly to the Chinese wet markets, buy cat and dog meat, put it in their carry-on luggage, fly back to the United States, and then force-feed kittens cat meat in taxpayer-funded cannibalism experiments.

The Trump Administration announced that as a result of our campaign that they shut those experiments down. We actually saved the remaining cats in the lab and Anthony Bellotti adopted two of the cats out of that lab. But that is when we first got a glimpse of that there was taxpayer dollars being spent abroad for animal experiments. So we started to dig in and what we found was that there were over 350 laboratories in 50 different countries around the world that are currently authorized to receive US taxpayer dollars for animal testing. In particular, we documented over 30 animal testing labs in Russia and China are currently authorized to receive taxpayer dollars from the NIH for animal testing specifically.

TGP: So arguably our two biggest adversaries are still getting taxpayer dollars for animal experiments?

Goodman: Correct. In 2018-2019, we started discovering the problem was much bigger than what was happening at the Kitten Slaughterhouse. So we started to dig into what these laboratories were doing. We worked with Rand Paul and exposed some stupid experiments. In England, for example, they were addicting monkeys with heroin and getting zebrafish hooked on nicotine. And as we kept investigating where the money was going, we found that there was a laboratory in Wuhan on this list of facilities that were getting taxpayer dollars.

We met with the Trump White House in January 2020 and flagged for them before the pandemic was declared that this laboratory in Wuhan was getting money from the NIH. In April 2020, we released our big investigation that documented how taxpayer dollars were being funneled from NIH thru the EcoHealth Alliance to the Wuhan lab for these experiments. They (EcoHealth Alliance) were traveling to Southern China to collect bat viruses, bringing them to Wuhan, and manipulating them in the laboratory. We were proud to be the first to expose the fact that US taxpayer dollars were funding the experiments that most people now believe caused the pandemic.

TGP: With the Wuhan Institute of Virology, did you all have anyone who tipped you off or was this just good-old fashioned research?

Goodman: Just good-old fashioned sleuthing by White Coat Waste Project investigators. We follow the money. So we looked at where the NIH money was going, we looked at this list of labs and dug into see who was getting money and what they were doing with it. Of course, we have come to learn since then that dating back to 2018, the State Department was expressing concerns about the Wuhan lab and the fact that it was involved with coronavirus experiments that could spark a pandemic.

TGP: So there were concerns about a potential pandemic going back to 2018 because the Chinese were playing around with these viruses?

Goodman: That’s right. We knew that these experiments were going on and they were dangerous at their core, however, we had come to learn from whistleblowers subsequently and thru Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents that were related to White Coat and other organizations that there had been longstanding concerns about what was happening in the Wuhan laboratory.

TGP: Let me ask about EcoHealth Alliance because they were getting a lot of taxpayer dollars via Fauci’s NIH and from my understanding a lot of this was illegal too.

Goodman: The EcoHealth Alliance is a non-profit based in New York City and they fashion themselves as virus hunters. They fly around the world into remote places and they capture animals and harvest viruses from them. Then like we saw in Wuhan bring them into the lab and manipulate them (the viruses). They have never stopped or prevented a pandemic thru these projects. But they have raked in tens of millions of dollars from the federal government including just since the pandemic began. So despite the fact the EcoHealth Alliance is at the center of allegations that it sparked the pandemic with the experiments they were funding in Wuhan, taxpayers still foot the bill for their reckless research around the world.

From 2014-2017, there was essentially a federal ban for funding of gain of function experiments. It was implemented by the Obama-Biden Administration because there were concerns that these experiments would cause a pandemic. White Coat Waste obtained documents thru FOIA showing that in 2016 the EcoHealth Alliance and the NIH via email conspired to violate the gain of function ban by redefining what their research was and saying that it actually wasn’t gain of function. Of course, we came to learn later on that it was.

EcoHealth Alliance has repeatedly violated federal transparency laws that require them to show how they are spending federal taxpayer dollars. They have violated reporting requirements that mandate they report certain information to the NIH.

TGP: The next question I’m going turn to involves Tunisia. The Gateway Pundit actually wrote about this back in 2021. Can you just elaborate a little bit more on that because it is absolutely heart-wrenching?

Goodman: Yes, absolutely. Cassandra Macdonald broke the story. I remember working with her on that. We exposed that Fauci’s division of the NIH was funding experiments in Tunisia where they were taking beagle puppies, drugging them, and sedating them. And then locking their heads in mesh cages and filling them with hungry sandflies who bit them and ate them alive to infect them with diseases. The experimenters published a paper including a photograph of the experimental setup with the dogs in these cages and noted that the NIH had funded it.

TGP: I have actually seen those photographs. I can barely look at them.

Goodman: I believe that photograph is going to become iconic in the movement to end animal testing. It’s just so deplorable. We exposed that they were funding this project and once it started to gain traction, the NIH began to deny that they funded it even though the paper cited them as the funding source. The NIH and the experimenters said it was a mistake they were cited as a funding source. Thru FOIA, however, we exposed that the NIH did fund that experiment.

The photograph really helped spark this national movement to end taxpayer funded dog testing. It enraged people across the country. The flooded the phone lines of the NIH. It was one of the biggest scandals of Fauci’s tenure at the NIH. I think it’s going to lead to massive reforms in the way taxpayer dollars are being spent. So we are certainly proud of exposing it.

TGP: I next want to delve into the victories you all were able to secure in the omnibus bill. Would you just like to elaborate on what you think were the biggest wins for White Coat Waste?

Goodman: Sure. We were able to prohibit funding for dangerous virus experiments in laboratories in countries of concern like Russia and China. We were able to continue our defund of dog, cat, and primate testing in the Department of Veterans Affairs. We cut funding for practical live tissue training at the Department of Justice where they stab, shoot, and blow up live animals for these outdated training exercises.

TGP: They were actually blowing up animals?

Goodman: We exposed that the FBI a few years ago through FOIA was contracting for live tissue training which is a really outdated mode of medical training where they take live animals, usually pigs and goats. In the past they have used dogs as well, where they stab, shoot them, and sometimes burn blow them up. Then personnel would try to treat the wounds and then they kill the animals that survive. That’s something we’ve been able to stop at the DOJ thru our campaigning over the last few years. Now we have defunded it.

TGP: Final question. What are the ways Gateway Pundit readers can help White Coat Waste going forward?

Goodman: We are building an army of waste warriors to hold the government accountable. We have numerous campaigns going at any time, urging Congress and federal agencies to take action and stop wasting tax dollars on animal abuse. So if people want to visit and get involved in our campaigns, they can keep track of our work at whitecoatwaste.org and White Coat’s social media platforms. They can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-date information about what we’re up to and how they can get involved.

TGP: Justin, thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to speak with me today.

Goodman: I’m really grateful for your interest in our work.

Sopranos star John Ventimiglia’s daughter, Odele, passed away on January 12, her family announced.

She was 25.

The cause of death was not disclosed.

“Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice.” – Odele’s mother, Belinda Cape, said in a Facebook post.

“Her sister Lucinda and I have been overwhelmed by the messages of support and love we have received, and your remembrances of how cherished Odele was to so many. Odele was greatly loved, and leaves a huge hole in our lives.” she said.

“Odele is survived by her sister, Lucinda Ventimiglia, mother, Belinda Cape, father John Ventimiglia, and her beloved daughter Shiloh.” Belinda Cape said.

Scientists Are Using CRISPR Gene Editing to Put Alligator Genes Into Catfish

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 22:00

Scientists are attempting to reduce diseases in farmed catfish by genetically engineering them with alligator genes.

Dr. Rex Dunham, an expert in fish genetics at the University of Auburn alongside his colleagues, is attempting to “insert alligator genes into the genomes of fish.”

Dr. Dunham has decided to insert alligator genes into catfish because alligators contain the gene cathelicidin, an antimicrobial used to fight infections.

The team of researchers and scientists also plan to genetically alter the catfish to make sure they can no longer produce.

Disease Resistant Catfish by CRISPR, alligator gene coding cathelicidinhttps://t.co/YdGaKOqVxB

— Genetics of Aquatic Organisms (@genaquajournal) January 20, 2023

For their experiment the  team of scientists at the University of Auburn are using CRISPR, a gene editing tool.

MIT Technology Review had more details to share about the experiment:

Dunham, Baofeng Su (also at Auburn University), and their colleagues used the gene-editing tool CRISPR to insert the alligator gene for cathelicidin into the part of the genome that codes for an important reproductive hormone, “to try to kill two birds with one stone,” says Dunham. Without the hormone, fish are unable to spawn.

The resulting fish do seem to be more resistant to infections. When the researchers put two different types of disease-causing bacteria in water tanks, they found that gene-edited fish were much more likely to survive than their counterparts that had not undergone gene editing.

Over the last several years, scientists and engineers have been using CRISPR gene editing technology more and more.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported the CIA is funding Colossal Biosciences to resurrect the extinct Wooly Mammoth by using CRISPR technology.

Dr. Peter McCullough On What Goes Into His “Healthy Heart & Muscle Formula”

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 21:15

Dr. Peter McCullough has been a voice of reason in the time of COVID hysteria.

As a leading cardiologist, he has worked to educate us all on what – and what isn’t – the science of heart health.

And his warnings about vaccines have proved prescient.

In response to questions about getting hearts to their optimum condition, he created his “Healthy Heart & Muscle Formula” (ordering through this link and the links below also benefits Gateway Pundit).

While you can get the ingredients individually other places, Dr. McCullough’s formula puts them all in one capsule.

Watch:

!function(r,u,m,b,l,e){r._Rumble=b,r[b]||(r[b]=function(){(r[b]._=r[b]._||[]).push(arguments);if(r[b]._.length==1){l=u.createElement(m),e=u.getElementsByTagName(m)[0],l.async=1,l.src="https://rumble.com/embedJS/u5o49d"+(arguments[1].video?'.'+arguments[1].video:'')+"/?url="+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+"&args="+encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify([].slice.apply(arguments))),e.parentNode.insertBefore(l,e)}})}(window, document, "script", "Rumble");

Rumble("play", {"video":"v24mnd0","div":"rumble_v24mnd0"});

Dr. McCullough says:

My Healthy Heart and Muscle Formula is designed to keep your body’s cardiovascular performance and muscle functionality at its optimum condition. We all live busy and stressful lives but critical nutrients in this newest formula can also prevent overtiredness and fatigue that keep you from seizing the day. I combined D-Ribose Powder to help you maintain body composition and exercise endurance with the power of Coenzyme Q10 and Selenium Citrate to help increase overall cardiac functions.

Together with a Vitamin B Complex to fortify muscles and L-Carnitine to provide energy for heart, muscle, and even brain. This signature formula is all about keeping those core systems healthy. As a physician, I recommend these ingredients to people looking to maintain their hard-earned gains, recovering from illness, or boosting their nutrient intake as part of managing conditions related to your health.

North Carolina Couple Arrested After Allegedly Performing Exorcism On Child Who Later Died

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 21:00

North Carolina court records allege a 4-year-old child died after suffering from severe abuse from his adoptive parents which included the young boy being subject to amateur exorcisms.

Joe Paul Wilson and Jodi Ann Wilson, the adoptive parents of four-year-old Skyler Wilson, allegedly restricted food to Skyler and performed an amateur exorcism on him and his brother.

Both are now facing murder charges for Skyler’s death.

After police conducted search warrants on the Wilson’s phones, they discovered a message Joseph Wilson sent to his wife that said he had a problem with “swaddling.”

The correspondence also revealed Joseph reportedly sent a picture of Skyler wrapped up tightly in a blanket and duct taped to the floor.

While conducting a search at the Wilson’s home, police discovered “wrist and ankle support strap/braces” in the basement along with cameras that had their SD cards removed.

Police searched the residence a second time and confiscated three white surveillance-type cameras, USB drives, notebooks and a laptop.

A warrant obtained by Fox 8 News states a former foster parent was able to tell detectives that “Jodi Wilson had told her about the ‘pouching,’ swaddling, food restriction, refusal of [Skyler’s brother] to walk by himself, the gating of Skyler in a room for excessive ‘alone’ time, and the exorcisms of both children.”

“Is there a specific reason the president is leaving Camp David to go to Delaware just for that one night on Sunday night?” a reporter asked Karine Jean-Pierre.

“I don’t have anything to preview about what he’s gonna be doing.” Karine Jean-Pierre said.

HAPPENING NOW: RNC Chairman Election In Dana Point, CA – WATCH LIVE!

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 20:04

Watch Wednesday’s RNC Chairman Candidate Forum here.

The RNC is voting now on a secret ballot at their annual winter meeting to elect a new chairman at their winter meeting at the lavish $1,000/night Waldorf Astoria Resort in Dana Point, California.

The chosen venue appears to be another attempt by the RNC to keep everything behind closed doors and prevent non-elitists from attending the events.

That, or it could be another example of current Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s bad spending habits.

The Gateway Pundit reported on Ronna’s latest scandal of spending millions of donor dollars on luxury expenses since 2017. “The records also include more than $100,000 in hair/makeup services and dry cleaning expenses, which presumably are for McDaniel’s media appearances and wardrobe. Dry cleaning expenses are categorized mainly as office supplies or travel expenses, while the hair/makeup services are categorized as media preparation,” According to Red State.

Ronna reportedly spent $3.1 million on private jet services, $1.3 million on limousine/chauffeur services, $17.1 million on donor mementos, $750,000 on floral arrangements, and $80,000 in alcohol-related expenditures.

SCANDAL: RNC Under Ronna McDaniel Has Spent Millions On Private Jets, Luxury Items

The Gateway Pundit correspondent Jordan Conradson is on the ground in Dana Point.

As we reported, Ronna ran away from Conradson this morning when confronted about her scandalous and irresponsible spending of donor money.

The Gateway Pundit reported that a new Rasmussen poll finds that Mike Lindell tops both Ronna McDaniel and Attorney Harmeet Dhillon as Republican Party Chair among GOP voters.

Republican voters want a change. And Republican voters want a fighter.

Ronna is hated by grassroots Republicans, likely due to her record of losing and abusing her donors!

Call your state’s RNC committeemen and demand they withdraw any and all support of Ronna Romney immediately!

 

The Gateway Pundit will continue to provide updates on the vote and the event at the Waldorf in Dana Point.

Watch the vote live on CSPAN here.

Ohio Man and Fiancée Murdered in Mexico – State Department Issues Travel Advisory For Zacatecas, “Do Not Travel Due to Crime and Kidnapping”

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 19:48

A Cincinnati architect and his fiancée were murdered in Zacatecas, Mexico last week.

Jose Gutierrez and his fiancée Daniela Pichardo went missing last week.

Authorities found four dead bodies buried next to a vehicle with bullet holes and flat tires.

A DNA test confirmed Jose Gutierrez, his fiancée Daniela Pichardo and Pichardo’s sister and cousin were the four people found dead.

The State Department issued a travel advisory for Zacatecas state.

“Do not travel due to crime and kidnappings,” the advisory states. “Violent crime, extortion, and gang activity are widespread in Zacatecas state. U.S. citizens and LPRs have been victims of kidnapping.”

Fox 5 New York reported:

A DNA match has confirmed that Cincinnati architect Jose Gutiérrez is one of four people found buried next to a bullet-riddled vehicle in Zacatecas, Mexico, last week, according to his family and local reports.

Gutiérrez’s parents, who live in Mexico, told FOX 19 Cincinnati that DNA results confirming their son’s identity were returned with 99% accuracy.

His sister, Grissi Gutiérrez, confirmed to Fox News Digital that their parents went to pick up his remains on Tuesday.

Gutierrez, 36, was last seen at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport Dec. 22, 2022, while traveling to visit his fiancée in Mexico.

Mexican authorities discovered Gutierrez — along with his fiancée, Daniela Pichardo, and Pichardo’s sister and cousin — dead and buried next to a car with multiple bullet holes and flat tires.

WATCH: “What About The $80,000 For Alcohol?” – Ronna Romney McDaniel Runs From TGP Reporter When Asked About Spending Millions On Luxury Items Before RNC Chair Election In Dana Point, CA

GatewayPundit - Fri, 01/27/2023 - 19:08

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney Mcdaniel, who is seeking reelection in today’s election, ran away from TGP correspondent Jordan Conradson this morning when confronted about her scandalous spending of donor money on private jets, luxury items, and clothing for herself.

An RNC Staffer then got physical with Conradson to prevent him from questioning Ronna further and asked security to have Conradson removed.

The RNC is voting today to elect a new chairman at their winter meeting at the lavish $1,000/night Waldorf Astoria Resort in Dana Point, California. News Nation national correspondent Robert Sherman told The Gateway Pundit, “This is the only event that’s open press. Everything else is behind closed doors.”

The vote is expected to begin at 11 am.

SCANDAL: RNC Under Ronna McDaniel Has Spent Millions On Private Jets, Luxury Items

These expenses also included private jets, limo services, NFL games, Broadway shows, senior staffer retreats, and on items from high-end brands.

McDaniel responded, calling the allegations “blatantly false.”

Ronna used a similar excuse to duck out of John Fredricks’s RNC Chairman candidate forum on Wednesday, telling Steve Bannon that she was “never-ever asked to be a part of that debate” and calling the controversy created by her refusal to participate a “fake news lie.”

Fredricks clapped back at Ronna and told Bannon, ” Of course, we invited her, just like we invited Harmeet and Mike Lindell. Both of those accepted immediately. By the way, they had seemed to have no conflict with it. They never bothered to respond because they don’t care about you or me or anybody listening to this show.”

The Gateway Pundit reported live on the forum with Mike Lindell and a representative for Harmeet Dillon. Watch the full candidate forum here.

If Ronna was truthful, why would she refuse to speak to our reporter?

Watch below:

Conradson: Ronna, it’s Jordan Conradson with The Gateway Pundit. I wanted to ask you about some of the RNC’s expenditures.

Ronna: uhhh (runs away)

Conradson: $80 grand on alcohol? How do you do that?
