It seems like an update is due once a week. Chuck Ross at Da Caller recounts how the Atlantic Council Ignored Anti-Corruption Activist’s Warnings About Burisma, The Ukrainian Firm Linked To Hunter Biden. Corruption ignored when a Democrat (or his son) is involved? I'm shocked! Althouse cites Gleen Grenwalt "In the weeks leading up to the 2020 presidential election, The New York Post, the nation’s oldest newspaper, broke a major story based on documents and emails obtained from the laptop of Hunter Biden..." and everyone buried it.
After the defeat of Neera Tanden's nomination for budget chief, the heat fell next on Vanita Gupta, Biden's nominee for Associate Attorney General for her past ant-police, and anti-Republican rhetoric. Fox, Biden DOJ nominee Vanita Gupta expresses 'regret' over anti-GOP remarks: 'I apologize' Biden DOJ nominee Gupta says she doesn't support defunding police despite past comments
"I do not support defunding the police," Gupta said during the hearing. "I have in fact spent my career advocating, where it's been necessary, for greater resources for law enforcement for things like body-worn cameras, office wellness and safety programs, and any number of measures."
That position is in contrast with testimony that Gupta provided to the committee in 2020 following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Rayshard Brooks, which took place during police encounters. Floyd's death in particular sparked nationwide protests and calls for police reform, marked by the left-wing movement to defund ‒ and in some cases abolish ‒ police departments.
"While front-end systems changes are important, it is also critical for state and local leaders to heed calls from Black Lives Matter and Movement for Black Lives activists to decrease police budgets and the scope, role, and responsibility of police in our lives," Gupta wrote.

“The FAA cares as much, or more about us wearing masks as they do about the safety of passengers and pilots on the aircraft we a re working,” he told Berenson.That's comforting.

The Biden administration is reportedly coming under legal fire over a climate executive order signed on Jan. 27.
A coalition of 12 states — led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt — filed a lawsuit Monday suing the administration over the order, claiming it has the potential to have a serious economic impact through the expansion of federal regulatory power, Fox Business reported. The other state attorneys general joining the action were from Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah.
The states argue the order, titled “Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,” doesn’t have the authority to issue binding numbers for the “social cost” of greenhouse gases to be used in federal regulations, Fox Business reported. Schmitt said the regulations will stifle manufacturing and harm agriculture in Missouri and hundreds of thousands of workers in those industries in his state, Fox Business reported.
“Under President Biden’s executive order, which he didn’t have the authority to enact, these hard-working Missourians who have lived and worked this land for generations, could be left in the dust,” Schmitt said in a statement, the news outlet reported.
The suit claims the impact from the $9.5 trillion “social cost” of greenhouse gases will stretch across the nation.
“In practice, this enormous figure will be used to justify an equally enormous expansion of federal regulatory power that will intrude into every aspect of Americans’ lives — from their cars, to their refrigerators and homes, to their grocery and electric bills,” the suit states, Fox Business reported.
Jordan Davidson at Da Fed, ‘It’s Appalling’: Mollie Hemingway Calls Out Corporate Media Spin On Biden’s Threats
“It’s appalling. The White House told reporters that they wanted them to say that this speech was uplifting and hopeful and so reporters did that or these propaganda outlets did that, when in fact it was anything but. It was remarkably ungracious, there was no mention of what the previous administration did. The only thing that has really worked in this entire coronavirus pandemic is developing the vaccine,” Hemingway continued.
She also noted that Biden traded gratitude for the previous administration’s efforts to facilitate and distribute a safe and effective COVID vaccine for threats.
“There were these threats that if you didn’t do what Joe Biden wanted, you might lock the country down again and then to pick Independence Day as the day where he says he might allow people to gather is just so un-American. And just, you know, Joe Biden doesn’t get to tell me when I can have a barbecue in my backyard, and certainly not to tie that to Independence Day,” Hemingway said. “It does feel like we’ve lost something as a country that so many people are willing to do this type of draconian restrictions from the government for this level of a problem. If they’re willing to do it for this situation for this length of time, it’s a very bad sign for the days to come.”
