March 5, 2011. I remember the moment like it was yesterday when my family contacted me in a panic to let me know that my 18-year-old cousin and goddaughter, Marizela “EmEm” Perez, had gone missing.

“Help.”

It’s the text you get in the middle of the night that doesn’t seem real. Ten years ago this week, EmEm vanished from the University of Washington campus in the middle of a sunny afternoon. She was last seen walking away from a Safeway grocery store in the U District and into the dread void of uncertainty. Once again, as I have done faithfully and heartachingly for the last decade, I must report that there is still no news on her whereabouts. Nothing. In 2019, I finally received some Seattle Police Department documents in response to a public records request about her case. But nothing in the trove shed light on any potential investigative leads.

In my home office, I keep a bulging file called “Find Marizela.” There are handwritten notes of conversations with police, carefully constructed timelines, social media archives and holiday photos gathered around the piano singing Christmas hymns and carols. There’s also a stack of missing person flyers emblazoned with the headline, “HAVE YOU SEEN ME?” illustrated with screenshots from the Safeway surveillance video. Pale and fleeting, EmEm looks like a ghost—drained of the beautiful, bubbly energy she embodied as a child who loved baking cookies and playing board games with me.

The description on the flyer reads:

“Asian female, 5’5″ tall, 110 lbs, skinny build, asymmetrical bob with short bangs and brown/red highlights hairstyle, tattoo on left inner arm with the words ‘lahat ay magiging maayos’ (all will be well), last seen wearing a dark jacket with hood over a light color sweater with hood, denim jeans, light brown suede laced boots, possibly wearing green eye contacts, carrying a denim drawstring backpack with rainbow butterfly screenprint, with a Macbook Pro laptop.”


Ten years.

The first weeks after she disappeared are now mostly a blur, but a few memories are indelible. I remember breaking down while a teenage girl sang “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry at my then-7-year-old son’s talent show on the night before I flew out to Seattle to be with Marizela’s parents:

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors…
…Gather up your tears, keep ’em in your pocket
Save them for a time when you’re really gonna need them, oh

I won’t forget the kindness of strangers and old friends who volunteered to help us search local parks and public streets. I remember feeling lost and desperate in Discovery Park, staring out toward Puget Sound, praying to God, asking: “Where? How? Why?”

For all the negativity that surrounds the reputation of the national media, I have nothing but praise and thanks for the local reporters — Christine Clarridge at the Seattle Times and Shomari Stone at KOMO, in particular — who covered Marizela’s story with compassion and context. Clarridge highlighted Marizela’s case, as well as the plight of other families with missing young adults, in a searing front-page feature on what parents go through in cases where the police have not found evidence of foul play. Suicide was a primary assumption on the part of the police. EmEm did have a history of depression. But the case of young Joyce Chiang — whose death in 1999 was reclassified as a homicide in 2011 by Washington police who mistakenly insisted the case was a suicide — shows the dangers of locking into assumptions without thoroughly exploring all leads.

Ten years on, the investigation into Marizela’s disappearance has all but come to a halt. But if you live in the Washington area and have any relevant information about her whereabouts, please contact the Seattle Police Department at (206) 625-5011. And for those who have to go through this same hell, a hell I wish on no one, I leave you with five hard-learned lessons from a decade’s worth of unknowing:

1) Document everything.

2) Take an immediate and full inventory of your loved one’s internet footprint — every email account, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and social networking account.

3) Don’t assume the police are pinging cell phones, obtaining internet or phone records or obtaining surveillance camera video. Don’t assume anything.

4) Make sure your loved one’s info gets into the NAMUS (National Missing and Unidentified Persons System) database immediately.

5) Don’t be afraid to be a squeaky wheel.

If you don’t speak up for your missing loved one, no one will.

(Related: Brooklyn Woman Fired From Job After Not Getting Vaccine Because She Wanted to Wait For More Data on Pregnancy Effects)

Twenty years ago, when I was pregnant with my first child, I transformed into a total health nut. A lifelong couch potato, I started exercising, enrolled in Lamaze classes and even took vitamins for the first time. I halted my consumption of caffeine, Doritos, Spam and sushi. After decades of obliviousness to food labels, I began scrutinizing every additive and preservative listed in the teeny-tiny font on each item of my grocery list.

Now, imagine if our culture encouraged women of childbearing age to be as vigilant about the effects of Big Pharma’s experimental drugs on themselves and their unborn babies as they are about our diets. We know all about gluten and carbs, trans-fats and Omega-3 fatty acids, mercury in fish and heavy metals in baby food. But do you know what’s in the COVID-19 vaccines that an estimated 100 million Americans are expected to inject into their bodies by this spring?

In December, I flagged concerns raised by Dr. Michael Yeadon, former vice president and chief scientific officer at Pfizer Global, regarding two additives in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine: polyethylene glycol and mNeonGreen. Yeadon and his colleagues warned of potential fertility-specific risks involving antibodies against “spike proteins” that could disrupt the development of placenta in vaccinated women. It is “unclear,” they warned, “what if any instructions/information” that clinical trial subjects received regarding those risks.

Bear in mind that none of the clinical trials conducted by the vaccine-makers to win emergency use authorization from the federal government included pregnant women. That has been historically true of drug trials because, as Dr. Simone Gold of America’s Frontline Doctors explained to me in an interview last week, the “cascade of events that has to go one in the human body to get pregnant and maintain a pregnancy is incredibly complicated” and “we don’t know all the details of what we don’t know.” Gold called it “shocking” that medical professionals and pregnant women or women of childbearing age “would be advocating” taking “anything experimental.” [WATCH FULL INTERVIEW HERE.]

Yes, let’s be clear and accurate in our description of the COVID-19 vaccines. They are wholly experimental treatments manufactured and marketed by multinational corporations that are immune from liability for their products being tested, approved and distributed at warp speed. An important white paper by America’s Frontline Doctors reminds citizens that COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca are considered “investigational” in status and fall under legal standards for experimental medications. The trials are ongoing and enrollees are tracked for at least the next two years. “We do not know the effect on the pregnant or soon to be pregnant,” Gold and her colleagues report. “There is no actual data at all for an enormous percentage of the population, probably more than half.”

On top of all that uncertainty and lack of data, the “mechanism of action of the experimental mRNA vaccines includes a possible auto-immune rejection of the placenta. In layman’s terms, the vaccine may permanently interfere with a woman’s ability to maintain a pregnancy.” In fact, as the labeling on COVID-19 vaccine vials itself acknowledges: “(I)t is unknown whether COVID-19 mRNA VaccineBNT162b2 has an impact on fertility. And women of childbearing age are advised to avoid pregnancy for at least two months after their second dose.”

Nevertheless, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now downplaying the risks of COVID-19 jab complications in pregnant women and claims there are “no red flags,” while the World Health Organization has warned that “very little data are available to assess vaccine safety in pregnancy.”

Let me give you the bottom line on the “expert” consensus about whether the COVID-19 vaccines are safe for pregnant women: They just don’t know. Yet, those who dare dissent from Big Pharma orthodoxy have been branded “conspiracy theorists” and are being pushed off social media. Merely noting that the experts don’t know what they don’t know is smeared as “misinformation” or “disinformation.” (You may remember I first warned you about this global censorship of vaccine dissidents in March 2019.)

The National Vaccine Information Center’s VAERS database tracker has identified 23 cases involving COVID-19 vaccines and reported miscarriages, fetal death, premature delivery or stillbirth. The background miscarriage rate is about 10-15%, so you would expect some miscarriages to happen regardless of the vaccine. But extreme caution is still advised. Alex Berenson, former New York Times reporter and COVID-19 watchdog, asks: “Where’s the safety data?” He reports that animal studies on COVID jabs have shown “much higher rates of lost fetuses” — and to date, the only such trials have been conducted on pregnant rats.

In the meantime, federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System data on human COVID-19 vaccine recipients have disclosed “multiple cases of apparently healthy late-term fetuses lost days after vaccinations,” Berenson adds. “Healthy pregnant women are at next to no risk from #Covid; why on earth would anyone try to shame them into getting this vaccine?”

For moms and moms-to-be, we must always follow the oath that so many COVID Inc. experts have abandoned: First, do no harm.

What a sick joke. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, one of the loudest mouths leading the impeachment circus against former President Donald Trump over the events at the Capitol on Jan. 6, is a brazen racial insurrectionist. The sixteen-term Democrat from South Central Los Angeles has been pouring verbal gasoline and tossing rhetorical Molotov cocktails into the public square since the 1992 L.A. riots.

Now she’s the arbiter of civility and keeper of social order? LOL.

Waters blasted Trump for telling his supporters on Jan. 6 to “be tough” and “take back their government” — standard, peaceful stump speech fare. She blames our 45th president for the actions of a few who ignored his explicit call to remain “peaceful,” while denying that her own fighting words and direct embrace of riots have contributed to decades of violent incitement. Trump’s impeachment trial lawyers rightly allude to her instigation of mobs formed against administration officials at restaurants and public spaces. In their trial brief, Trump’s team contrasted the president’s anodyne encouragement for conservative activists to “fight like hell” for their country with Waters’ endorsement of physical harassment against Trump’s cabinet members:

“If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd,” Waters shrieked in 2018 at a rally in Los Angeles. “And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

That’s exactly what left-wing professional agitators, from Occupy ICE to antifa to Black Lives Matter to Smash Racism D.C. to the Sunrise Movement, have done over the past two years, targeting prominent Republicans and conservatives and their families on the streets and in their own homes.

But the fact is that Trump lawyers only scratched the surface of Waters’ divisive and destabilizing diatribes.

I first began covering “Turbulent Waters” in the early 1990s as an editorial writer and columnist at the Los Angeles Daily News. Let me remind you that newfound anti-insurrectionist Waters is the very same bloodthirsty opportunist who whitewashed the deadly L.A. riots as a “rebellion,” excused the week-long shooting, looting and arson orgy as “a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice and a lot of alienation and frustration,” and coddled Crips and Bloods gang members — with whom she performed the Electric Slide as part of her “fearless support and understanding of young people and their efforts at self-expression.”

Waters made common cause with her neighborhood gangsta rappers who stoked the violence, calling them “poets” and “children” expressing their “pain.” I remind you that shortly before the 1992 L.A. riots, rapper Ice Cube (a denizen of Waters’ district and a member of the cop-killing glorifiers at rap group N.W.A.) had penned the hate-filled song “Black Korea” for his best-selling platinum solo album, “Death Certificate.” He seethed against law-abiding immigrant entrepreneurs in his ‘hood and threatened to burn their stores “right down to a crisp”:

They hope I don’t pull out a Gat, try to rob

Their funky little store, but, b-tch, I got a job.

So don’t follow me up and down your market

Or your little chop suey ass will be a target

Of a nationwide boycott.

Juice with the people, that’s what the boy got…

…So pay respect to the black fist

Or we’ll burn your store right down to a crisp.

Promises made, promises kept.

Waters told the L.A. Times in May 1992 that “riot is the voice of the unheard.” She openly embraced the term “insurrection” as a substitute for “riot” in a 1992 interview with Katie Couric. A quarter-century later, in an anniversary interview with the Huffington Post, she again used the term “insurrection” to celebrate the implosion of L.A. and stoking of anti-white, anti-Asian violence as a “defining moment in the way that black people resisted.”

“Resistance”? Sixty people were killed, 2,000 injured, $1 billion in damages inflicted, and $700 million in federal aid injected to quell the arsonists, looters and shooters simply expressing their “pain.” “Roiling Waters” excused the violence repeatedly by defending the “righteous anger” of the rioters against police, innocent white bystanders like trucker Reginald Denny (nearly beaten to death by Waters’ gangsta buddy Damian Williams), and the Korean shop owners (forced to take up arms and take to their rooftops to defend their lives and livelihoods when the cops yielded to the mob).

Now, nearly 30 years later, the wealthy and powerful black congresswoman whose rise to power is defined by violence-inducing and violence-excusing racial demagoguery, demands “accountability” for words to remove a president no longer in office.

Clown Congress. Clown country.

Everything old is new again. The corruptocracy of the Obama administration is back with a vengeance in the White House. Once more, the “S” in “DHS” stands not for security — but for sleaze. Our nation is back for sale to the highest foreign bidders and their “America last” cronies.

Last Thursday, the Senate Homeland Security Committee pushed through the nomination of Alejandro “Ali” Mayorkas to head the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Six Senate Republicans sided with Democrats in breaking a GOP filibuster: Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Rob Portman of Ohio, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, and Dan Sullivan and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Just call them the Senate GOP Traitors’ Caucus.

“Inclement weather” forced the postponement of the full and final Senate vote scheduled Monday, but the swamp always gets its way come rain, shine, sleet or snow. Seven years ago, I first raised alarms when Barack Obama’s shady Chicago crony Mayorkas was tapped for the No. 2 position at DHS. Feckless Senate Republicans surrendered then, as they will again now.

Mayorkas’ main qualification for the deputy DHS secretary slot was his glorious record of achievement as a top Obama presidential campaign fundraiser in 2008. “Obama bundler” bestowed the same magical powers of access for Ali Mayorkas as “Open, sesame!” did for Ali Baba.

Mayorkas will fit right in under the rein of Quid Pro Joe. As I reported during Mayorkas’ 2013 confirmation hearings, Mayorkas phoned the Clinton White House while U.S. attorney on behalf of convicted drug dealer Carlos Vignali. Mayorkas joined other high-profile California liberals in the dialing-for-pardons campaign. Vignali’s father (also suspected of drug trafficking) had dumped $200,000 in the coffers of Hillary Clinton’s brother, Hugh, to secure his son’s commutation.

Naturally, Mayorkas pleaded ignorance of Vignali senior’s suspected criminal activity and admitted failure to do his “due diligence.” Mayorkas’ pardongate “mistake” cost him nothing. Like so many slimy swamp creatures in Washington, he has repeatedly failed upward by design, not accident. As the former head of Obama/Biden’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, allegations of fraud, reckless rubber-stamping and lax enforcement — from veteran internal whistleblowers —plagued Mayorkas’ tenure. Senate Republicans went along with his appointment to the DHS No. 2 slot even though he had been under investigation for his role as a meddling fixer in foreign EB-5 visas-for-sale schemes for 15 months before that nomination.

Federal investigators interviewed more than 15 whistleblowers ranging from rank-and-file employees to several senior managers in California and at the D.C. headquarters who accused Mayorkas of bestowing preferential access and treatment to politically connected EB-5 applicants and stakeholders. They detailed how Mayorkas “created special processes and revised existing policies in the EB-5 program to accommodate specific parties” while serving as director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

“Their allegations were unequivocal,” the DHS inspector general concluded, and the corruption under Mayorkas was systemic.

Reminder: then-Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid pressured Mayorkas to overturn his agency’s rejection of expedited EB-5 visa applications for Chinese investors in a Las Vegas casino hotel, which just happened to be represented by Reid’s lawyer son Rory. Adjudicators balked at the preferential treatment. Mayorkas steamrolled the dissenters, who reported on shouting matches over the cases. Reid’s staffers received special briefings from Mayorkas to update them on the project’s progress.

One underling called it “a whole new phase of yuck.”

Meanwhile, in the words of one DHS official at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau, Mayorkas “absolutely gave special treatment” to electric car racket GreenTech, which zealously sought EB-5 visas for another group of deep-pocketed Chinese investors. Former Democratic National Committee chair and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe helmed the company after it was spun off from a Chinese venture. Hillary Clinton’s late brother, Tony Rodham, spearheaded the EB-5 partnership with GreenTech. Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Mississippi GOP Gov. Haley Barbour both lobbied for approval of the project.

McAuliffe whined to then-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano when the department’s adjudicators rejected the GreenTech deal. In violation of recordkeeping and disclosure rules, Mayorkas met with McAuliffe in February 2011 and then met personally with senior staff to urge the agency to reverse its denials. It did.

In 2018, GreenTech filed for bankruptcy after raking in some $141 million from 283 EB-5 investors — mostly from China. Nobody knows where all that money went. More than 25 questions asked by GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley about Mayorkas’ EB-5 interventions remain unanswered five years after the inspector general report lambasted his ethical breaches as “corrosive and destabilizing.”

Perhaps Joe Biden will appoint ChiCom tool Hunter Biden as the next DHS inspector general to guard the DHS sleazehouse — with the Senate GOP Traitor Caucus standing by to facilitate the uniparty’s sellout of America. Where’s a Patriot Party when you need one?

Victoria “Tori” Rose Smith lived a tragically short life. Three years. That’s less than 200 weeks on this earth. She was a girly girl who sported oversized bows in her straw-blonde hair and a megawatt smile on her face. A great-aunt described the blue-eyed baby as “bubbly,” “sassy” and “full of life” despite bouncing around foster homes for much of her brief existence.

Last week, authorities in South Carolina revealed that Tori had perished as result of multiple blunt-force injuries to her tiny head. She was beaten to death. Her adoptive parents, Ariel and Jerry “Austin” Robinson, are now charged with homicide by child abuse. A six-page police incident report describes how first responders rushed to the Robinsons’ home on the afternoon of Jan. 14, 2021, after Mr. Robinson called 911. Little Tori was not breathing. EMTs performed CPR. She was rushed to the hospital, where she died. Investigators immediately suspected child abuse.

The key to Tori’s murder lies in 17 redacted lines of the police report from a Simpsonville, South Carolina, police officer documenting his crime-scene interview with Ariel Robinson, who described an unknown incident involving her adopted daughter that had occurred the day before. The entire paragraph is blacked out — an ominous chunk of hidden information about Tori’s last day on the planet.

Incident report via FITSNEWS

Thanks to her ubiquitous social media presence, however, we can fill in a lot of blanks about Ariel Robinson. She was a fame-chaser, an aspiring comedian, and a wannabe social media influencer who paraded her entire blended family (two biological sons, plus Tori and her two brothers, whom the Robinsons adopted all together) on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for clicks and likes.

https://twitter.com/arifunnycomedy/status/1348412773802397701

Robinson had achieved minor notoriety as the Season 20 winner of the Food Network’s “Worst Cooks in America” contest. She hosted a podcast with her husband and was set to launch a new YouTube this month called “Cooking, Comedy, and Convos.” Her YouTube channel has now been deleted. But other dark clues remain.

In her past podcasts, Robinson spoke of battling depression and violent thoughts. “I don’t feel like I want to hurt others, but some days I do want to hurt others,” she rambled. “I don’t feel I would…I don’t feel homicidal,” she told her audience, then seemed only to half-joke: “Everybody want (sic) to hit somebody some days but I don’t want to kill nobody.” She talked about the temptation to just “snap” and warned openly that “(i)f you get angry today and fly off the handle, punch somebody, kill somebody, assault, murder, you are one bad decision away from ruining the rest of your life.”

Perhaps most troubling, she used her apparent propensity for violence as material for her stand-up routines. One video from 2019 shows her recounting how a social worker came to visit before she adopted Tori and her brothers. Robinson’s own biological sons were making noise upstairs during the home interview, prompting Robinson to scream at the top of her lungs: “SHUT UP, BEFORE I COME UP THERE AND PUNCH YOU IN YOUR THROAT.”

The audience laughed as she described how she downplayed the violent threat to the social worker (“Aw, ya know, it’s just a game”) and then delivered the punchline about the adoption to more peals of laughter:

“We got approved” for Tori’s adoption — the audience erupted in cheers and giggles — “we gonna have her by December.”

I’ve devoted this column space to beautiful toddler Tori because you probably won’t hear anything more about her in the “mainstream” media. That’s because this homicide is wrapped up in a package of race and crime taboos you are not supposed to discuss. Robinson is Black. Tori was white. On her social media accounts, Robinson promoted Black superiority, bashed Donald Trump and cops, and griped about institutional racism.

“In my house,” she wrote, “my black children get treated the same as my white children, and my white children get treated the same as my black children. It’s a shame that when they go out into the real world, that won’t be the case.” Robinson punctuated the Jan. 6, 2021, Instagram post with the hashtags “#whiteprivilege” and “#BlackLivesMatter.”

Eight days later, Robinson’s adopted white daughter succumbed to multiple blunt force trauma to her head and will never have a chance to “go out into the real world.”

Did child welfare bureaucrats overlook Robinson’s mental health issues because of her race? Were they aware of her resentment of white people before they allowed her to adopt three white children? Did the system lower their standards to appease social justice and affirmative action crusaders? Were signs of abuse ignored out of deference to a rising celebrity whose politically correct status as a BLM-promoting do-gooder shielded her from scrutiny and criticism?

Ideas have consequences. So do lies. Americans have been hopelessly conditioned to look the other way at cases like this, lest they commit what they’ve been taught is the greatest sin of all: “racism.” Until it is thoroughly demolished by people of courage, the myth of white privilege will surely claim more victims.

Say her name: Victoria “Tori” Rose Smith’s life mattered.

When you’re catching flak, you’re over the target. When you’re triggering threats of violence from the Biden crime family, you know you’ve hit the bull’s-eye.

As the entrenched Obama-Biden syndicate that I chronicled in my 2009 book, “Culture of Corruption,” officially returns to power in Washington, D.C., this week, it’s worth calling attention to a telling little message from Hunter Biden’s top business partner about yours truly. The Feb. 15, 2011 email was one of thousands stored on the abandoned laptop of Joe Biden’s scandal-plagued son.

Heres’ the backdrop: Over the past decade, I have reported extensively on Joe Biden’s lifelong milking of his entrenched swamp career for the benefit of his family — including his promotion of government-subsidized Amtrak rail boondoggles. During his tenure as vice president in the Obama administration, Biden fronted a $53 billion high-speed train initiative. He installed friends and family inside the agency while eliminating longtime fiscal watchdogs looking out for taxpayers.

In 2009, I spotlighted how veteran Amtrak inspector general Fred Weiderhold was abruptly “retired” — just as the government-subsidized rail service faced mounting complaints about its meddling in financial audits and probes. Weiderhold had blown the whistle on overzealous intrusion by the agency’s Law Department into his investigations of $1.3 billion in rail stimulus money and exposed how Amtrak’s legal counsel had usurped the watchdog’s $5 million portion of federal stimulus dollars to hamstring his probes.

Weiderhold discovered that the federal rail bureaucracy was retaining outside law firms beyond the independent watchdog’s reach and obstructing subpoenas issued to an outside financial adviser. A 2010 report by GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa concluded that the Amtrak board improperly removed the agency inspector general without required prior notice to Congress.

Who ousted Weiderhold? Still can’t say for sure, but I noted at the time that Biden’s lobbyist son, Hunter, was sitting on the Amtrak board of directors when Weiderhold was pushed out. Hunter raked in tens of thousands of dollars for showing up to Amtrak meetings. Eleanor Acheson, super-attorney and friend of Joe, was Amtrak’s vice president and general counsel. She oversaw the very Law Department accused of interfering repeatedly with the taxpayer advocates in the inspector general’s office. Acheson had also hired Biden’s former Senate staffer Jonathan Meyer as her deputy general counsel. Meyer called it a “happy coincidence.”

Hunter’s business partner, Eric Schwerin, wasn’t happy about my reporting on these matters in my syndicated columns and on my blog. In 2011, Schwerin was president of Hunter’s investment company, Rosemont Seneca. He wrote to Hunter with the subject headline, “M. Malkin,” on Feb. 15, 2011, at 9:37 p.m.:

“Just read the blog post. Does anyone push back against her directly when she says you are a ‘lobbyist’ and are currently on the Amtrak board? I am sure it would be far worse to antagonize her, but it drives me crazy. I want to punch her in the face.”

Quid Pro Joe and his minions have long chafed at accusations that they have profited mightily from their nepotistic enterprises. But who knew it inspired such fantasies of misogynistic violence? If Schwerin’s name sounds vaguely familiar, then you’ve been paying attention:

—It’s Schwerin who informed Hunter in other emails that he had failed to disclose $400,000 in payments he received from Ukrainian energy company Burisma in 2014 after taking in $1.2 million that year.

—It’s Schwerin who was enmeshed in communications between Rosemont Seneca and a Chinese Communist Party-owned business entity called CITIC to build an NBC/Universal Studios theme park outside of Beijing.

—It’s Schwerin who told Hunter in 2018 that a Chinese private equity firm, BHR Partners, would generate income for him “over the next couple of years.”

—It’s Schwerin who was rewarded by President Obama with a presidential commission appointment in 2015.

Hunter’s laptop contains a trove of emails between Hunter, Schwerin and various other business associates who secured Amtrak contracts to produce railroad cars and build tunnels. Internet investigator and blogger Nick Monroe chronicled long email threads exposing bid negotiations and insider information solicitations involving Hunter, Schwerin, Rosemont Seneca, CAF Railway Solutions and infrastructure design firm HNTB Corporation.

In 2010, for example, Schwerin informed Rosemont colleagues that a CAF/Amtrak deal had gone through and started counting the big bucks:

“I think we should ask for $75,000 upfront (which is 30%). Then begin billing them on a monthly basis sixty days later for the remaining $175,000 (so for the remaining 10 months it would be $17,500 a month). Objections?”

Schwerin then messaged Hunter privately: “For CAF we are guaranteed $180,000 (or $15,000 a month) for a year.”

Sifting through a raft of similar messages, Monroe concluded: “It’s through that we can see that Hunter Biden made a six-figure sum from leveraging his existing relationship with Amtrak, if not more. The door is open for authorities to audit Amtrak and investigate the full extent of taxpayer dollars that Hunter pilfered through his work.”

Don’t get your hopes up. The sycophants of the Fourth Estate and the operatives of the “deep state” will be too busy the next four years kissing the Biden corruptocrats’ backsides — and protecting their privileged noses from harm.

 

Is it just me or has the entire universe of establishment media, politics and Hollywood forgotten that this country has endured an entire year of relentless violent anarchotyranny?

Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters set businesses and churches ablaze, smashed state capitols and laid siege to federal courthouses. They permanently destroyed precious statues and symbols of America’s heritage. They assaulted elderly people, stalked and menaced bystanders, taunted and terrorized law enforcement. And they committed murder — dozens of times — in the name of social justice while the powers that be sat idly by.

How conveniently they have all forgotten the grief of Ann Dorn, widow of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, who was slain by George Floyd vigilantes looting a pawn shop he was guarding on June 2, 2020. Ann Dorn condemned the violence during a speech to the Republican National Convention last summer and recounted how she relives “that horror in my mind every single day. My hope is that having you relive it with me now will help shake this country from this nightmare we’re witnessing in our cities” and “bring about positive, peaceful change.”

Dorn’s plea went unheeded. Why? Because riots and invasive protest are the primary means by which the left operates and has always operated.

When they take over government buildings, like 40,000 Democratic union workers did when they stormed Wisconsin’s state capitol in 2011 for nearly a month, it’s not an insurrection. It’s a First Amendment celebration.

When they take over U.S. Senators’ offices, like they did during the 2018 Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, it’s not sedition. It’s “democracy.”

When they feel like blocking traffic and shutting down highways, the police don’t arrest them. They protect them.

And when they occupy U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities and vandalize federal courthouses — while obstructing homeland security operations, shining lasers in cops’ eyes to blind them and hurling bricks at them to maim them — it’s not a crime. It’s “peaceful protest.”

This is not “whataboutism.” It’s an absolutely necessary and vital backdrop as we seek to make sense of what happened last week in our nation’s Capitol. (And isn’t it the Left that always urges us to identify “root causes” when their thugs cross the line?) Law-abiding Americans are angry and frustrated precisely because the law has not been equally applied.

Whether we’re talking about lockdown rules or mob rules or election rules, the elites and their allies live by one set of rules and govern by another. Hundreds of thousands of peaceful Donald Trump supporters are being smeared by pundits and politicians who have downplayed left-wing lawlessness from Day One of the Trump presidency. Those who protest this injustice are being purged from social media and the public square at warp speed:

—Some 70,000 dissidents on Twitter were summarily purged after being tarred as dangerous conspiracy theorists on Monday.

—Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed Trump supporter who was gunned down by Capitol police last week, has been ruthlessly defamed by blue-checkmarked celebrities on Twitter and labeled a domestic terrorist.

—MAGA moms and their children are being dragged off airplanes by federal jackboots for attending the Jan. 6 rally, while antifa and BLM advocates gloat.

—”Stop the Steal” organizer Ali Alexander and his colleagues have been wiped off Silicon Valley platforms, along with conservative social media company Parler, libertarian Ron Paul, “War Room” host Steve Bannon, “America First” host Nick Fuentes, “Red Elephants” host Vince James, cartoonist Ben Garrison, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, election fraud researcher Ron Watkins, Gen. Michael Flynn, and lawyers Sidney Powell and Lin Wood.

—Trump faces yet another phony impeachment attack despite his explicit call for supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

Meanwhile, actual convicted domestic terrorists like Black Liberation Army assassin Assata Shakur, Weather Underground killers Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, and May 19th Communist Organizer Susan Rosenberg (a left-wing weapons supplier and insurrectionist pardoned by Bill Clinton and now a board member of the umbrella group overseeing Black Lives Matter) are deified by the media, Hollywood and academia.

Maxine Waters has been cribbing Martin Luther King Jr.’s line about riots being the “language of the unheard” ever since she danced on the ashes of the L.A. riots with Bloods and Crips.

Liberal magazine Slate declared just six months ago in defense of antifa and BLM anarchotyrannists that “non-violence is an important tool for protest, but so is violence.”

There simply cannot be peace and civil order in such a dysfunctional country of double standards and stifled dissent. It is dishonest and harmful to our republic to pretend otherwise.

 

You were warned.

In September 2020, right here in this nationally syndicated newspaper column and on a subsequent report on my Newsmax show, “Sovereign Nation,” I sounded the alarm over Silicon Valley’s hijacking of our election system through a private nonprofit called the Center for Technology and Civic Life.

In October, I tipped off the White House and publicly urged the FBI and Justice Department to investigate. Nothing was done. Not a single federal official objected. So, the Zuckerberg Heist will happen again and again in this farce of a constitutional republic. Free and fair elections in America are a pipe dream.

In case you were snoozing, as far too many citizens in this country are, CTCL is the deep-pocketed liberal advocacy group subsidized by Big Tech oligarchs and radical philanthropists. The center received $350 million from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan. Election information-rigging Google is a top corporate partner. The Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Democracy Fund (founded by “Never Trumper” billionaire and eBay former chairman Pierre Omidyar) also pitched in. There are unknown other wealthy donors to the 501(c)(3) “charity,” but I can’t tell you who and how many they are because their identities are protected by IRS rules.

I was able to tell you last fall how CTCL solicited over 1,100 applications from across the country for the group’s purported “COVID-19 Response Grant Program” to “provide funding to U.S. local election offices” that steered voters toward alternatives to traditional voting. The pandemic provided a handy ruse to sabotage our regular Election Day experience through less transparent, more manipulable absentee and vote-by-mail mechanisms.

I showed you how there is nothing “nonpartisan” about CTCL’s enterprise. The Center’s top staff (many of them Barack Obama campaign tech gurus) come from a now-defunct liberal nonprofit called the New Organizing Institute, whose far-left donors include George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, the Ford Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies. CTCL director Tiana Epps-Johnson is a former Obama Foundation fellow. Former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, author of “The Citizens’ Guide to Beating Trump,” worked for Zuckerberg’s foundation.

Chicago political activist Jay Stone, The Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, and watchdogs in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania all filed lawsuits prior to Election Day against CTCL’s partisan grant scheme to affect battleground states’ and counties’ election results. This week, just as I prepared to file this column, The Amistad Project filed a new suit against Fulton County, Georgia (home of the pipe burst shenanigans that shut down absentee ballot counting on Election Day) for using dark money CTCL funds in both the general election and the Jan. 5 Senate runoff elections.

“The sanctity of our electoral process is being violated by the unprecedented infusion of private money,” Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project, warned. “Instead of being distributed equally, as the law requires,” he noted, “election funding is now being doled out by private interests seeking to influence the process for partisan advantage.”

According to The Amistad Project, the money that Fulton County has accepted from CTCL “is nearly equal to the amount the county received from public sources for the 2020 general election.” Grant recipients must abide by Zuckerberg/CTCL’s requirements on how many polling places and absentee ballot drop boxes it supplies. Election judges have been subsidized with Big Tech/Democrat operatives’ money. The grants have reportedly been used to facilitate illegal “curing” of flawed ballots while GOP observers were blocked from doing their jobs.

Questions raised by Amistad that remain unanswered:

— What conversations has Mark Zuckerberg and/or those on his staff had with David Plouffe and/or Plouffe’s colleagues? Was funding to CTCL specifically discussed? Will Zuckerberg share related emails?

— What strategic discussions has Zuckerberg had with CTCL’s leadership? How does he monitor CTCL’s progress? Will he share emails pertaining to these matters?

The Democrats like to say that “your voice is your vote.” When tech oligarch Mark Zuckerberg (net worth: $100 billion) has the unregulated and unmitigated ability to dictate how America’s elections are run, who runs them, how we cast our ballots, and who counts them, what voice do we have left?

If there were ever a time to “question authority,” as the old counterculture slogan of the 1960s urged, the authoritarian age of COVID-19 is that time. 2020 will go down in American history as the year that public health “experts” got everything wrong.

It’s not just that their judgment was faulty. It’s that time and again, the professional elites deceived the citizenry, derided other academics and medical professionals who challenged them and de-platformed outspoken dissidents who refused to obey them. These pathological liars are the true public health threat.

Exhibit A: Anthony Fauci.

The incurably smug director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases led the “Great Mask Hoax” in March 2020 when he told CBS News, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.” He very explicitly characterized mask-wearing as a performative gesture that “might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.”

Months later, fact-doctorer Fauci performed a whiplash-inducing 180-degree turnaround and became the planet’s No. 1 mask cheerleader. He rationalized that he needed to mislead the nation about the efficacy of masks in order “to save the masks for the people who really needed them because it was felt that there was a shortage of masks.”

I don’t know about you, but in my house, we call this sick behavior “covering your behind.”

Last week, Fauci was at it again. After repeatedly asserting over the past year that 60-70% of Americans would need to submit to vaccine jabs to reach herd immunity, he cranked up the number to between 70-90% in an interview with The New York Times. Fauci confessed that he manipulated the numbers based on polling data about citizens’ vaccine hesitancy:

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent … Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85. We need to have some humility here …. We really don’t know what the real number is.”

“We” need to have some humility? Speak for yourself, Dr. Gasbag!

Fauci further disclosed on CNN this weekend that his herd immunity pronouncement was nothing more than a “guesstimate.”

I don’t know about you, but in my house, we call this kind of prestidigitation “pulling things out of your behind.”

Fauci’s colleagues performed similar feats of scientific fraud, deception, misdirection and political propaganda.

The Erroneous Experts shut down playgrounds, ordered us to stop singing and dancing, and canceled Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas in the name of social distancing — but gave the green light to Black Lives Matter marches, antifa protests and post-election celebrations by Joe Biden supporters.

The Erroneous Experts caused panic shortages of hand sanitizer and antiseptic wipes with unsupported claims that COVID-19 spread through surfaces.

The Erroneous Experts facilitated the suffering of countless patients by recklessly hooking them up to ventilators, turning their lungs to mush and forbidding their loved ones from comforting them as they lay dying unnecessary deaths — while publicity-thirsty doctors and nurses went viral twerking for TikTok and Twitter.

The Erroneous Experts conducted online purges and witch hunts against naturopaths, chiropractors, independent investigative journalists, informed parents and frontline doctors who advocated vitamin D, zinc, sunshine, exercise, hydroxychloroquine or any other commonsense measures that did not involve lining the pockets of Big Pharma — even as two-faced Fauci admitted he takes vitamins C and D to boost his immunity.

The Erroneous Experts stoked widespread fear of “asymptomatic transmission” of COVID-19, forcing catastrophic lockdowns of healthy people around the globe. But as a new British Medical Journal article acknowledges: “(W)e know very little about the proportions of people with positive results who are truly asymptomatic throughout the course of their infection.” About half of people classified as “asymptomatic” go on to develop symptoms. Contrary to the impression Erroneous Experts have left the public with, they have no idea to what extent people with no symptoms transmit the virus to others.

Moreover, the BMJ article makes clear: “No test of infection or infectiousness is currently available for routine use. As things stand, a person who tests positive with any kind of test may or may not have an active infection with live virus, and may or may not be infectious.”

So, the COVID-19 tests are unreliable as we hurtle toward mandatory, universal testing, tracking and tracing. And, as I reported in my three-part series on the clinical trials, the COVID vaccines are neither safe nor effective by any honest measure. Indeed, the World Health Organization’s chief scientists admitted Monday what I pointed out last month:

“I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on,” Dr. Soumya Swaminathan stated.

The “believe science” cult of Erroneous Experts is the epitome of anti-scientific thought. May 2021 be the year of resistance and the death knell for COVID control freakism.

Here is a textbook illustration of how the corporate media’s sins of omission can be far more damning than the corrupted industry’s sins of commission.

Over the weekend, thousands of patriotic citizens descended on Washington, D.C., to protest election fraud and defend President Donald Trump. Left-wing “black bloc” mobs threw water bottles, bricks, and fireworks at cops and Trump supporters. Eight law enforcement personnel were injured by Antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchists; one officer received multiple severe lacerations to his face. At least 33 were arrested at the close of the weekend for assaults and mayhem, but countless victims received zero help from cops who stood down and did nothing.

So, what did national news outlets choose to focus on?

NBC News: “Black Lives Matter signs burned at D.C. churches; police investigate as possible hate crimes.”

The Washington Post: “Historic D.C. Black churches attacked during pro-Trump rallies Saturday.”

CNN: “Protesters ripped and set fire to BLM signs at two D.C. churches.”

Associated Press: “Vandals hit Black churches during weekend pro-Trump rallies.”

This much is true: As chaos broke out late Saturday night, some members of the Proud Boys stole and set fire to several Black Lives Matter signs that were on display at two D.C.-area churches. This isolated mischief was nowhere near on the scale of the wanton looting, shooting, terrorizing, and burning down of entire downtowns and neighborhoods across the country by Black Lives Matter and Antifa in the name of “social justice.”

But the media propagandists who have labeled violent left-wing riots as “peaceful protests” all year long seized the opportunity to stoke false narratives: Trump supporters are the real threat to civil order. The populist movement to “stop the steal” of election 2020 is rooted in hate. It’s “Jim Crow” all over again, “reminiscent of cross burnings” and the “rise of white supremacy,” according to one of the fragile black church pastors making the rounds.

Except that it’s not.

The idea that this was an “intentional targeting of houses of worship,” as another black pastor claimed, is nonsense on stilts — and a viral video of the incident proves it. The Proud Boys, a largely Christian men’s group led by Afro-Cuban activist Enrique Tarrio, chanted “f—- Antifa!” as they roasted a couple of the BLM signs. They were “targeting” symbols of those twin domestic terrorist groups, whom the Proud Boys have stood against when no one else would, not black church congregations.

Make no mistake. There has been a concerted campaign of terror against people of faith and their houses of worship this year, but it doesn’t fit the anti-Trump narratives of the propaganda media. Since the George Floyd incident in May ushered in the age of anarchotyranny, scores of Catholic churches have come under attack across the United States. You probably haven’t forgotten about it because you probably didn’t know about it in the first place.

Black Lives Matter leader and propagandist Shaun King instigated the anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-Catholic mob by tweeting during the first outbreak of post-Floyd riots.

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been,” he fumed. King’s call to violence was explicit: “In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.”

King is still spreading his venom on Twitter.

Catholic officials have tallied at least 39 incidents of “arson, statues beheaded, limbs cut, smashed, and painted, gravestones defaced with swastikas and anti-Catholic language and American flags next to them burned, and other destruction and vandalism” at Catholic churches across 19 states since June. Complicit Clergy, a Catholic watchdog group, tracked nearly 70 such attacks through the summer.

—In May, Our Lady of Mt. Lebanon-St. Peter in Los Angeles was spraypainted with “ACAB” (All Cops Are Bastards) “Kill All Cops,” “FTP” (“f—- the police”), and “Make America Pay For Its Crimes Against Black People” slogans.

—A statue of Jesus was decapitated at St. Patrick Cathedral in El Paso, Tex., after the bishop of the local diocese knelt before a BLM sign.

—Rioters tore down a statue of St. Junipero Serra, an 18th-century Franciscan priest and missionary, at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. A Serra statue at Mission San Rafael Arcangel was defaced and toppled. The mission church in San Gabriel, Calif., which Serra founded, was destroyed in July by a massive arson fire.

—”Statues of Jesus and Mary at churches in Boston, Mass., Miami, Tenn., and Colorado Springs, Colo., were set alight, beheaded, and defaced,” Carina Benton reported for The Federalist in October.

—Catholics praying the rosary to guard the King Louis IX statue in St. Louis were threatened and beaten by BLM and Antifa sympathizers.

A BLM leader unleashes a year-long, race-based “Tear them down” ragefest against followers of Christ. The anti-Trump, anti-white journalists are as quiet as church mice. Silence is not just complicity. It’s media malpractice.
