The Latest From Sidney Powell and Defending the Republic

Elections still matter

Dear Patriots,

Elections still matter. Yes, they are full of fraud and cheating, but, even so, they matter.

If you live in a state that is having any kind of election next week, regardless of your mistrust, go vote.

When you don’t vote because you are mad or depressed, the bad people win.

We recently had an election expert talk with us about the dangers of the ballot drop boxes. These are the boxes that private citizen Mark Zuckerberg spent $4 million to install all over swing states.

These ballot drop boxes offer cheaters a way to stuff the ballot box with fake ballots that are then counted. The way to foil this particular fraud is to vote in person on Election Day. 

Do not vote early or by mail! This is particularly pivotal in Virginia next week.

— The mail in ballot drop box locations are prime spots for mass physical dumping of ballots by a single individual or small group.

The extent to which this happens will probably be a mathematical estimate of how many ballots are needed to secure the race based on polling beforehand and the margin to avoid a mandatory recall.


— if increased scrutiny can be placed on the ballot drop locations, and the physical movement surrounding them, there is a very high chance of finding large centralized amounts of premeditated “buffer” insurance and fraud for fixing the election.


Typically there will be an initial estimate of how many votes are needed to fix an election before election day and those ballots will be spread out beforehand to several centralized locations in an effort to not make it as obvious on the back end and allow an entry point for counterfeiting in the chain of custody before the election runs out of time for voters.

Afterwards, depending on how wrong the estimate was of the amount of fraudulent ballots needed (and if the opponent would win in a landslide without a lot more fraudulent votes entering the system), the premeditated fraud machine would have to kick in to overdrive on the difference if there is premeditated and committed fraud and fixing of the election.

Disallowing fraudulent ballots at the mathematical estimate phase and the drop box locations where verifiable fraud en masse occurs would necessitate more back end fraud after the election results should be in.

This would require backfilling.  It would display a massive mathematical hole to fill, which by mathematical definition at that point, would be a complete fraud because it is premeditated.


Voters defending against such an attack should not vote early or by mail, but arrive on election day to disallow an accurate mathematical estimate to be built as well.

Bad actors committing this would tend to prefer to wait as long as possible for as much information as possible before making an estimate because it will become more accurate over time.

For more information on Ballot Drop Boxes, read about the surveillance that caught ballot traffickers putting thousands of ballots into drop boxes in the middle of the night. 

Here is an in-depth piece that outlines how Zuckerberg bought the 2020 election by paying cities to set up ballot drop boxes.

We can not emphasis this strongly enough.  It is crucial to turn out in massive numbers for your candidate. It is the huge voter turnout for Trump on the day of the election that broke the algorithm and exposed all the shenanigans. Until we can secure our demand for paper ballots, hand-counted, with presentation of citizen photo ID, we must continue to turn out in record numbers.

1- Remember, politicians of all stripes hide the truth and prevaricate. 

Incumbent New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, one of five Democrat Governors who killed many older Americans by needlessly pushing infected people into nursing homes, now is secretly planning an unnecessary vaccine mandate. He won’t talk about it, but, count on it happening should he be re-elected. We can only hope the citizens of New Jersey wake up and vote for Jack Ciattarelli.

Project Veritas: Senior Advisor Reveals NJ Governor Murphy to Impose State-Wide Covid Vaccine Mandate AFTER Re-Election


QUOTE:  Project Veritas on Monday released video of a senior campaign advisor admitting New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will impose a state-wide Covid vaccine mandate AFTER re-election. Phil Murphy is hiding information from the public in order to win independents, moderates, and undecided voters.


Wendy Martinez, a senior advisor for Phil Murphy told a Project Veritas journalist the governor is waiting to impose the mandates until after the election because the “independents and undecided” will not vote for him if he did mandates.

2- Not only are Florida’s Covid-CCP statistics the best in the country, we bet their crime rate plummets too.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will pay unvaccinated cops $5,000 bonus if they relocate to his state


QUOTE: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced that he will pay unvaccinated police officers from other states $5,000 if they relocate to the Sunshine State to work, as cops across the U.S. continue to leave their posts in droves over COVID vaccine mandates.


‘We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments,’ the governor told Fox News on Sunday. ‘In the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,’ he told the network’s Sunday Morning Futures program.


Then, addressing officers in cities like New York, Seattle and Minneapolis, DeSantis said: ‘If you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here.’

3- Epoch Times has actually interviewed people willing to lose their jobs instead of being jabbed by force. They are smart and committed professionals making an informed decision. This is not a reason to lose a job.

Health Care Workers Speak Out on Why They Would Rather Lose Their Jobs Than Take a COVID-19 Vaccine


QUOTE: Despite the COVID-19 vaccines having been promoted as safe and effective by legacy media, many health care workers are refusing to take them, and those who openly speak out about their concerns get censored by Big Tech companies or kicked off their platforms.


Emily Nixon is a registered nurse who has been working in the health industry for 18 years. When her employer, MaineHealth, announced that it would make the vaccine mandatory, she quickly organized a group called The Coalition for Healthcare Workers Against Medical Mandates and filed a lawsuit.


“Thousands of health care workers have and will be losing their jobs. The already weak health care infrastructure of Maine will not withstand this devastating loss of staff. Life will be lost. Care is already being rationed. We have been experiencing a media blackout in this state,” Nixon said.


“Speaking from my point of view, an intelligent, healthy, and empowered health care professional that takes excellent care of herself, it is an insult to expect that I would accept an injection of unknown substance and efficacy and provide an example to the great people that I serve that they too should submit their power over to pharmaceutical companies—convicted felons—in an effort to put a band-aid on the gaping wound of reality.


“It is unconscionable to mandate injections without exemption, especially when the injection is a brand new medical product still undergoing its first year of study. Breakthrough cases are not properly reported on. We know this vaccine is ‘leaky.’ The safety and effectiveness of this vaccine has not been proven. There are other safe and alternative treatments. It is impossible to give fully informed consent without long-term, unbiased data. Threatening our jobs is blatant coercion. Our God-given right to bodily integrity and personal autonomy has been stripped with these mandates and we will not stand for it,” Nixon said.


4- All we can say about these students is….bravo!



Loudoun County, Virginia, students stage walkouts over sexual assaults


QUOTE:  Hundreds of students in Loudoun County, Virginia, walked out of classes Tuesday morning to protest their school district’s handling of reported on-campus sexual assaults.


The demonstration took place after a 15-year-old boy was found guilty Monday of a May 28 attack on a teenage girl inside a bathroom at Stone Bridge High School.


Students at Riverside High School, Stone Bridge High School, Loudoun County High School and others also took part in the walkout, the reports said. Organizers said the demonstration was intended to “show solidarity to victims of sexual violence and demand safety in our schools,” WUSA9 reported.

Important “January 6” Information

Dear Patriots,

Revolver News has done amazing investigative work on what really happened on January 6 in the U.S. Capitol.

It is an in-depth piece with supporting videos.  It raises questions inexplicably not being asked by the House select committee investigating January 6.

We have pulled a few quotes from the article below, but we encourage you to read the entire piece to understand fully what our FBI has done to Americans.  Americans are still incarcerated political prisoners of the federal government. 

Many Americans on a first offense are still detained, in ‘solitary confinement,’ and yet, even at this point, the government brings new charges for an investigation that started back in January.  An investigation that has not found any illegal guns, bricks, arson tools, bombs or other weapons at the Capitol.

They are still in custody despite this new evidence.  The evidence of the FBI’s role in this event grows by the day. The prisoners are being abused daily.  

Defending the Republic supports attorneys and litigation in defense of a number of Americans caught in the January 6 web of conspiracy.

Please share this. The more people know about the government’s involvement in this event, the better for all of us.

The left will ignore this. 

The Fake Media will ignore this. 

The House Committee will ignore this.

Defending the Republic will NOT ignore this.


Darren Beattie, who wrote the piece, was interviewed on The War Room and hits the highlights. (Note: they have technical issues at one point, but stick with it.)

Episode 1,360 – Jan 6th Was A Failed Intelligence Operation




Meet Ray EppsThe Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears To Have Led The Very First 1/6 Attack On The U.S. Capitol


QUOTE: In a House hearing on Thursday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) questioned AG Merrick Garland about a mysterious man, Ray Epps, instructing protesters to enter the US Capitol building on January 5, and who later shepherded crowds towards the Capitol on January 6.


The story of the mystery man, Ray Epps, featured in Rep. Massie’s video above is in fact far more shocking than even the good Congressman implies in the hearing. It’s a story so strange, and so scandalous at every turn, that it threatens to shatter the entire official narrative of the “Capitol Breach” and expose yet another dimension of proactive federal involvement in the so-called “insurrection” of January 6th.


QUOTE: There is good reason why AG Garland ran from Massie’s question faster than he could find words — and why he couldn’t even keep eye contact as he was dodging Massie’s gaze.

After months of research, Revolver’s investigative reporting team can now reveal that Ray Epps appears to be among the primary orchestrators of the very first breach of the Capitol’s police barricades at 12:50pm on January 6. Epps appears to have led the “breach team” that committed the very first illegal acts on that fateful day.


What’s more, Epps and his “breach team” did all their dirty work with 10 minutes still remaining in President Trump’s National Mall speech, and with the vast majority of Trump supporters still 30 minutes away from the Capitol.


Secondly, Revolver also determined, and will prove below, that the the FBI stealthily removed Ray Epps from its Capitol Violence Most Wanted List on July 1, just one day after Revolver exposed the inexplicable and puzzlesome FBI protection of known Epps associate and Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes.


July 1 was also just one day after a separate New York Times report amplified a glaring, falsifiable lie about Epps’s role in the events of January 6.


Lastly, Ray Epps appears to have worked alongside several individuals — many of them suspiciously unindicted — to carry out a breach of the police barricades that induced a subsequent flood of unsuspecting MAGA protesters to unwittingly trespass on Capitol restricted grounds and place themselves in legal jeopardy.


Please help us help the men, women, and families being destroyed by the Biden administration’s abuse of the legal process. Including solitary confinement, denial of bail, and overcharging of our fellow Americans, led by the conduct of the FBI as described above.

It is hard to tell when we are winning 

Dear Patriots,No one tells us when we are winning. The left wants to portray us as losers and all alone and that they have the majority support.   So, we must seek out our own wins. On Friday, we had a win.  1- Wow. How bad must the polls have been, how unrelenting was the push back from parents, to get this group to apologize? Or was it the reporting that the White House colluded with the NSBA that forced them to take one for the Biden team? Regardless, this is a win for all of the parents and grandparents across America who have fought so hard to protect their children from being propagandized in schools with toxic agendas and teachers. 

(The Daily Wire)  

NSBA Apologizes For Letter Describing Potential Domestic Terrorism At School Board Meetings

QUOTE: The National School Boards Association has issued an apology for a letter it sent to the Biden administration late last month that asked the Department of Justice (DOJ) to crack down on “threats of violence and acts of intimidation” at local school board meetings.

Days after the letter was sent, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced he was ordering the FBI to investigate a recent spike in “harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence” against school board members.

The original NSBA letter asked the Biden administration to use the Patriot Act to look into “acts of malice, violence and threats against public school officials,” which the association said “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”

On Friday, the NSBA apologized for that letter and the language it used. 

QUOTE: The apology was sent one day after The Washington Free Beacon reported on emails obtained by Parents Defending Education that showed the NSBA collaborated with the White House before sending the letter. The emails show that the NSBA’s president and CEO sent the letter to the Biden administration on September 29 without prior approval from the organization’s board. The emails also showed that the White House asked the NSBA for examples of the alleged threats against school board members just one day before Garland announced the task force that would look into those threats.

“The letter makes clear that the White House was aware of the letter before it was released, while raising questions about whether the White House colluded with the association on the letter to prompt federal action,” the Free Beacon reported.

2- Can you guess the one country that has apparently beaten Covid-CCP and did it WITHOUT the vaccines?  The answer is here. Look at the graphs!(Alex Berenson Substack)QUOTEfrom Alex: It’s almost – hear me out, this is gonna sound CRAZEE – government strategies have made NO DIFFERENCE to the spread of this highly contagious but only moderately dangerous respiratory disease.  There is one exception, though.3- We wish we were shocked by this from Obama, but we are not. There will be no fraud-free elections until every state is audited from 2020. Additionally, each state must pass voting laws which ban mail-in ballots, limit early voting and demand Voter ID. Virginia has done nothing toward this.  So, they will cheat again. McAuliffe will win and the credit will go to Obama and Biden for coming out to support him.  By the way, check out the photo of the people who came out to hear Obama, then compare that photo to any recent Trump rally.

Barack Obama Signals That Democrats Intend to Cheat in the Virginia Governor’s Election 

QUOTE: Barack Obama has signaled not-so-subtly that the Democrats fully intend to cheat in the Virginia governor’s election. In front of a modest crowd at a ticketed event at Virginia Commonwealth University, the former president endorsed gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe and emphasized repeatedly that voters can cast their ballots for him in the mail or at drop boxes.

“Before we start anything else, I want to remind you and everybody who’s watching, you don’t have to wait until November 2nd to cast your ballot,” he said. “You can vote early, right now. Either by mail or in person.”

“Don’ be lollygalling [sic],” he said. “Don’t be, don’t be sitting on the couch saying, ‘I’ll get to it later.’ You can vote early right now. If you get a ballot at home, you can return it by mail. Or you can hand it in at your local registrar’s office. Or you can take it to a drop-off location today. Don’t leave it on your desk.”

“Millions of Virginians voted early last year,” he added. “Let’s do it again this year.

Biden has lost more approval at start of term than any other president since World War II.  Poll finds Biden’s support has dropped over 11 points since Q1

QUOTE: Polling shows that President Joe Biden has suffered a larger approval rating drop at the start of his term than any presidentsince World War II.5- Could this be the downfall of King Fauci? After all, many Americans, regardless of their politics, care passionately for puppies!  Ask Michael Vick.


Bipartisan Group of Lawmakers Demands Answers From Fauci About ‘Cruel’ Experiments on Puppies

QUOTE:  Dr. Anthony Fauci, the emerging and infectious diseases “expert” has been implicated in a series of taxpayer-funded, animal-testing experiments. Beagle puppies, that is. This time, a bipartisan group of lawmakers is demanding answers.

According to the White Coat Waste Project (a watch group committed to stopping taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, monkeys, cats, and other animals), as reported by Daily Caller, 44 beagles were used in the experiments conducted in a Tunisia, North Africa, laboratory. Some of the dogs reportedly had their vocal cords removed, allegedly so scientists could work without incessant barking.

Georgia’s Marjorie Taylor Greene brings ‘message of conservatism’ to Connecticut

QUOTE: On a stage in front of more than 3,000 people waving Donald Trump and United States flags, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said it reminded her of home.

Greene, a Republican representative for Georgia, visited Plainfield on Saturday afternoon for the Quinebaug Citizens Alliance’s “America First Rally.”

Greene kept coming back to her central message for attendees, which can be applied to any Connecticut resident regardless of political affiliation: Get involved in your local government and promote change.

MLB Nightmare: It’s Georgia and Texas in the World Series


QUOTE: Sports writers, MLB staffers, and the commissioner of baseball, in particular, must still be clutching their pearls. Last night, 41,000 unmasked Braves fans screamed their un-masked and un-mandated lungs out, all while tomahawk-chopping their Atlanta Braves to victory. Atlanta was denied this year’s All Star Game because Commissioner Manfred caved to craven political actors. Baseball, he said, can’t have a featured event in Georgia after it passed a voter ID law. Baseball moved the event to Colorado. Colorado already had similar voter law but no matter; its all about optics, not facts.


In July, Texas Democrats slinked away to avoid a quorum on a Texas voter law. They took a private plane, took lots of selfies and lots of beer. They came back with their tails between their legs, empty cases of beer, and a couple of cases of COVID. The new Texas voter law requiring ID passed last month. It was all about optics, not facts.


QUOTE: It’s Georgia and Texas. Yes, Mr. Commissioner, Georgia versus Texas. Neither state has a mask mandate.  Neither state will have people deputized to check COVID “papers.” Vaccination rates in both states are about the same as California. The difference is that, here in California, I see mothers with their children walking dowh the street, all with masks on. You can’t get into Dodger Stadium without showing your COVID “papers.”

Good News Friday: Oct 22

Dear Patriots,

We continue to ferret out the good because for the most part the Fake News does not report good news.  This week we found a lot of good news!

1- This is the news we get. Not the news we need.



Networks Skip Parents Suing AG for ‘Terrorism’ Smear, NBC Rails Against Anti-CRT Law in TX


QUOTE: Instead of reporting on the parents fighting back against the Biden administration’s tyranny, ABC’s World News Tonight was busy touting a transgendered “woman” being installed as a four-star general. On the CBS Evening News, they were hawking and huffing about cops and firefighters who would rather lose their jobs than getting vaccinated.


And for their part, NBC Nightly News went the other way and touted a handful of parents and liberal teachers opposing a school board doing away with Critical Race Theory (CRT).

2- It is good to see that someone in government cares and is endeavoring to fix a problem.

(The Daily Wire) 


DeSantis To The Rescue: Florida’s Created ‘Incentive Packages’ With Ports To Solve Supply Chain Clog


QUOTE: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced on Tuesday that Florida has created incentive packages to get companies to abandon clogged ports in states like Democrat-controlled California and use Florida’s ports instead, a move that he says can help solve the worsening supply chain crisis.


“As the rest of the nation faces rampant inflation and businesses stare down unprecedented supply chain problems, our message is this: Florida is here, we have capacity, we have incentive packages to help businesses who want to move here and we are going to make sure Americans get their Christmas Gifts this season,” DeSantis continued.

3- Ten hours. Yes, TEN hours were wasted to “discuss” protecting female athletes from interloping men. But the bill passed.

(The Post Millennial)   


Texas passes bill to protect girls’ sports


QUOTE: In their third special session, the Texas legislature passed a bill that would protect girls and women from being forced to compete against biological males in athletics.


After nearly ten hours of debate, House Bill 25 passed mostly along party lines, 76-54, on October 14. It went to the Senate the next day where it passed 19-12. The bill went back to the House and was approved a final time 76-61. The third special session ended Monday.


This marks the fourth time this year the Texas legislature has tried to pass a measure protecting females playing athletics. Legislation protecting females in sports had passed in the Texas Senate but failed in the House three previous times, once in the regular session and twice in special sessions. Governor Greg Abbott has said he will sign the bill.

4- They refuse to be the vaccine police for the left. Let this be an example to many more private businesses.

San Fran Temporarily Closes In-N-Out For Not Enforcing Vaccine Mandate, Restaurant Fires Back


QUOTE:  An In-N-Out fast-food restaurant in San Francisco, California, was recently temporarily closed for not enforcing the city’s vaccine mandate that requires patrons to provide evidence that they have been immunized against COVID-19.


“Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements,” In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, Arnie Wensinger said in a statement to Fox News. “After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation.”


“‘We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,’ Wensinger declared, slamming the San Francisco Department of Health’s requirements as ‘unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe’ and accusing the city of asking restaurants to ‘segregate Customers’ based on vaccine documentation.”


“We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business,” the statement said. “This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.”



5- Let’s talk DATA. 81 studies are all listed in this piece with explanation and links. What do 81 studies all agree on? Natural immunity is far better than anything you get from an ineffective, experimental vaccine.

QUOTE: The Brownstone Institute lists 81 of the highest-quality, complete, most robust scientific studies and evidence reports/position statements on natural immunity as compared to the COVID-19 vaccine-induced immunity.

6- It is a miracle that “weather delays” which we were told grounded 2,000 flights, resulted in a new policy to not force the vaccine on Southwest employees.

Southwest Airlines Backs Off Plan to Put Unvaccinated Employees on Unpaid Leave


QUOTE: Southwest Airlines told its employees that it will delay a plan to place workers who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 on unpaid leave if they haven’t yet obtained a medical or religious exemption. The Dallas-based carrier confirmed reports about the memo to news outlets on Tuesday, saying it will drop the plan.

Protesters Stage Walkouts Across California In Defiance Of School Vaccine Mandates


QUOTE: On Monday, faculty and students at schools across the state of California staged walkouts in defiance of vaccine and testing requirements set to take effect this week.  “We’re fighting for the freedom to make the medical choices that are best for our children. We are fully prepared to pull our kids from public school and hire our own teaching staff if that’s what it takes. We do not co-parent with the government,” Tess Van Dusen, an event organizer, reportedly said, according to ABC10 in Sacramento.


Outside of a high school in Van Nuys that is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), demonstrators held signs as they marched that reportedly read: “My Body, My Choice,” “Our kids are not lab rats,” and “Stop the mandate LAUSD.”

We Got Here Because of Cowardice. We Get Out With Courage – Bari Weiss


QUOTE: What we call “cancel culture” is really the justice system of this revolution. And the goal of the cancellations is not merely to punish the person being cancelled. The goal is to send a message to everyone else: Step out of line and you are next.


It has worked. A recent CATO study found that 62 percent of Americans are afraid to voice their true views.


QUOTE: But let’s start with a little courage. Courage means, first off, the unqualified rejection of lies. Do not speak untruths, either about yourself or anyone else, no matter the comfort offered by the mob. And do not genially accept the lies told to you. If possible, be vocal in rejecting claims you know to be false. Courage can be contagious, and your example may serve as a means of transmission.


Every day I hear from people who are living in fear in the freest society humankind has ever known. Dissidents in a democracy, practicing doublespeak. That is what is happening right now. What happens five, 10, 20 years from now if we don’t speak up and defend the ideas that have made all of our lives possible?


Liberty. Equality. Freedom. Dignity. These are ideas worth fighting for.


11- Polls are a slippery slope. We generally do not trust them as they are used by the left to frame their agenda. They all consistently over-poll Democrats.

However, over a span of time, they can be instructive. There is no way to spin the consistent polling results that show that the most popular president in our lifetime, the one who garnered 81 million votes, is in an approval death spiral.

While generally we would want our President strong and supported by the country, these numbers must be pushed onto the desks of Senators and Representatives as the reason they should not vote for any of the Biden agenda. Use this information when you contact your representatives.



Poll: Biden’s Approval Rating Sinks to 37 Percent


President Joe Biden’s approval rating continues to fall, with 37 percent of Americans approving the job he is doing, according to a Quinnipiac poll released on Tuesday.


QUOTE: While only 37 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance, 52 percent disapprove. The numbers are similar when asked about their opinion of the president.


Only 38 percent of Americans report a favorable opinion of Biden, whereas 50 percent have an unfavorable opinion.


In the same poll, numbers showed Republicans still overwhelmingly support former President Donald Trump and would like to see him run for office again in 2024. According to Quinnipiac, 78 percent of Republicans want to see Trump run for president again, which is a 12 point increase from his 66 percent polling in May.

12- We liked this video that illustrates the awesome ingenuity and resourcefulness of Americans.





Don’t let the bad news get you down. There’s lots of good news that the mainstream media mostly ignores.

13- “Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.”

We can not leave this week without mentioning that so many people have been vindicated. 

For two years Fauci has been on your TV lying to you about what he has done.

A letter from the NIH, written by molecular biologist Richard H. Ebright, shows that “NIH, and specifically, NIH Director Collins, NIAID Director Fauci, lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public,” Mr. Ebright,  tweeted Wednesday night when sharing the letter.

They lied: “Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.”

We are left wondering what else this gaggle of malevolence has falsified.



NIH Contradicts Fauci, Admits Funding Gain-of-Function Research at Wuhan Lab


QUOTE: Molecular biologist Richard H. Ebright on Wednesday posted a letter from the National Institute of Health (NIH) showing that an NIH grant did fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, contrary to what Dr. Anthony Fauci had testified to the Senate.


Fauci testified to Senators at a hearing in May that the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”


However, the NIH’s October 20 letter to House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer (R-KY) showed that the NIH grant, which was awarded to EcoHealth Alliance and then sub-awarded to the Wuhan lab, funded a research project during 2018 and 2019 that tested “if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model.”

Pentagon Faces Class-Action Lawsuit Over Vaccine Mandates on Military, Federal Employees and Contractors

The 24 plaintiffs “face a deadline under the Federal COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate to receive a COVID-19 vaccine that violates their sincerely held religious beliefs, and have been refused any religious exemption or accommodation,” according to Liberty Counsel, the Christian legal firm that filed the lawsuit.


The lawsuit (pdf), filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, lists President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as defendants.

2- We have few advocates against the mandates within The Swamp. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) is one.You can see this VAERS data discussed by Senator Johnson here:

Senator Ron Johnson: “There’s No Point to Mandate Whatsoever – With COVID Vaccine We’ve Had 16,766 Deaths in 10 Months”


QUOTE: On Sunday Sen. Ron Johnson(R-WI) joined Maria Bartiromo and had this to say on the mandates, “The mandates are pointless. Now that we know that fully vaccinated individuals are getting infected, they can transmit the disease. Unfortunately, they are being hospitalized, they’re getting seriously ill, they’re dying. There’s no point to the mandate, whatsoever.”


On the dangers of the vaccines, Senator Johnson added, “They’re completely ignoring the vaccine injuries. And Maria, people really need to understand this because it’s not being reported. It’s being suppressed. But over 25 years with the flu vaccine there were a little less than 1,700 deaths reported on the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS). That’s CDC’s early surveillance security system… With the COVID Vaccine, we’ve had 16,766 deaths in 10 months administering this vaccine.” Johnson added that over 5,400 of these deaths occurred within 2 days of taking the vaccine.


Why are they hiding this from the American public?

3- On one hand, it is wonderful that all sorts of tested, inexpensive and safe treatments for Covid-CCP are being discovered. On the other, it is frustrating that the medical community will not use any of them.

Is Aspirin the New Horse Dewormer


QUOTE: Is Aspirin the New Horse Dewormer?  Aspirin is one of those drugs that has been around forever. It is commonly used as a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and as a blood thinner. Surprisingly it may also have benefit in treating COVID.


As reported last week by the Jerusalem Post: The team investigated more than 400 COVID patients from hospitals across the United States who take aspirin unrelated to their COVID disease, and found that the treatment reduced the risk of several parameters by almost half: reducing mechanical ventilation by 44%, ICU admissions by 43%, and overall in-hospital mortality by 47%.

4- It has been fun watching college football this season and seeing the massive, and unmasked, crowds.  Of course, this gives the “experts” the vapors.  This might be considered a great big, two month study on “super spreaders”.

NBC fact-checks Fauci’s fear that college football games would be COVID super-spreaders: ‘Never happened’


QUOTE: A report on NBC’s “Today” Saturday fact-checked Dr. Anthony Fauci’s fear – made on its cable arm MSNBC – of a dramatic COVID-19 surge from crowded football stadiums, saying it “never happened.” NBC reporter Shaquille Brewster reported packed stadiums for sporting events have not become “super-spreader events” for the coronavirus.


“For weeks, crowds in the tens of thousands, mostly unmasked, have sat side-by-side now cheering on their teams at the halfway point of the season,” Brewster reported. “All while doctors warned of games becoming potential super-spreader events. A frightening prospect at the time with hospitals already on the brink.”


Brewster cited Fauci’s theory that packed college games would lead to rising COVID cases during an appearance in September on MSNBC.


“Cases are now in steep decline in every college football state across the south. Including Florida, where hospitalizations fell 64 percent last month, even as some 90,000 fans packed the [University of Florida] Gators’ stadium.”

5- Meanwhile, the Biden Administration is importing millions of illegal aliens. There is a deliberate decison not to vax them.  They are being shipped into all parts of America by the government.

The Biden Administration has lost track of 47,000 minors.  Can you say “human trafficking”?



16K COVID-19 Positive Migrants Released into U.S. by ICE, Says Whistleblower


QUOTE: More than 16,000 migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 while in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody were released into the United States, according to an agency law enforcement source. The Biden administration did not mandate any of the migrants to be vaccinated before their release. The source informs Breitbart Texas that the figures only include those migrants who were tested by ICE.


The source, not authorized to speak to the media, says the migrants ranged from infants to the elderly. A Department of Homeland Security document reviewed by Breitbart Texas reports the oldest released migrants were over 85 years old. Nearly 1,300 were under the age of ten.


Nearly 12,000 of the migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 and were released into the U.S. were between 18 and 40 years of age, more than 11,800 were male, nearly 1,300 were under the age of ten, and more than 6,000 were between 20 and 29 years old. According to the source, the releases occurred in multiple cities across the United States between January 2021 and early October.

Whistleblower: FDA and CDC Ignore Damning Report that over 90% of a Hospital’s Admissions were Vaccinated for Covid-19 and No One Was Reporting This to VAERS


QUOTE: A concerned Physician Assistant, Deborah Conrad, convinced her hospital to carefully track the Covid-19 vaccination status of every patient admitted to her hospital.  The result is shocking.


As Ms. Conrad has detailed, her hospital serves a community in which less than 50% of the individuals were vaccinated for Covid-19 but yet, during the same time period, approximately 90% of the individuals admitted to her hospital were documented to have received this vaccine.


These patients were admitted for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to COVID-19 infections.  Even more troubling is that there were many individuals who were young, many who presented with unusual or unexpected health events, and many who were admitted months after vaccination.


One would think that after an association was identified by a healthcare professional, our health authorities would at least review this finding, right?  Sadly, when Ms. Conrad reached out to health authorities herself, she was ignored.

7- When 90% vaxed is reached, they back off.

Delta Air Lines CEO Ditches ‘Divisive Vaccine Mandate


Delta Air Lines is ditching a vaccine mandate for employees, according to company CEO Ed Bastian, who notably emphasized the “divisiveness” of such an order.


Bastian said announcing a plan to get all employees vaccinated, without enforcing a mandate, has worked, allowing the company to reach a 90% vaccination rate.

8- We will not back down from eradicating all vote fraud. It is a rampant problem. Support people working on this issue in your states.

At Defending the Republic we encourage you to stop funding any political party or incumbent politician until we have paper ballots and citizen-only voter ID.  We will not have reliable elections in America until there are no computers used to vote.

Election Fraud Is Alive and Well in 2021


QUOTE: Democrat vote fraud is a very real and ongoing threat to representative democracy. This is why election integrity laws — which are supported by the vast majority of Americans — are misrepresented by members of their party, their media allies, and partisan think tanks as “voter suppression.” If we want free and fair elections whose results reflect the will of the people, fraud must be eliminated. The only way to accomplish that is for Americans to turn out in unprecedented numbers in 2022 and fire the fraudsters.

9- Surely, every single one of these protesters will be hunted down by the FBI, using cellphone GPS, coercing their family and friends and pouring through social media.

Surely, all will be arrested, thrown in a DC jail, with their legal rights abandon.

This is exactly what they have done to the Jan 6 citizens. Let’s see what happens.

Dozens of climate activists are arrested as they clash with cops at Interior Department


QUOTE: Dozens of climate activists have been arrested after they clashed with police in Washington DC and forced their way into the Interior Department building in scenes that some have called reminiscent of the US Capitol riot.


An Interior Department spokeswoman said a group of demonstrators rushed the lobby on Thursday, injuring multiple security officers, at least of whom was taken to a nearby hospital. Police and protesters clashed outside the building, and officers used Tasers and batons against several unarmed protesters, representatives for the activist group said. The group said 55 participants were arrested.

State School Board Associations’ Responses to the NSBA Letter


QUOTE: On October 11, Parents Defending Education emailed 47 state school board associations for comment on the NSBA’s September 29 letter (Hawaii and Washington DC are not members of NSBA, and Virginia & Louisiana had already made public statements). We asked all organizations the following questions:


As the [state association] has not yet commented on the National School Board Association’s September 29 letter to President Biden that requested federal intervention in local school board issues – which likened civic participation to “domestic terrorism and hate crimes” and cited the Patriot Act – Parents Defending Education would like to know whether your organization was involved in the creation of this letter and whether you agree with its substance and tone. If not, have you contacted the NSBA to let them know?


As of October 15, 17 states have distanced themselves from the NSBA’s letter: Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wyoming.
