BOMBSHELL: Whistleblower Exposes Google’s CHILLING Plan

(SNews) – Big Tech giant Google is curating data that artificial intelligence (AI) uses to learn, a whistleblower has claimed.

The whistleblower, former Google employee Zach Vorhies, warns that Big Tech can bias the AI to censor information flowing on the Internet.

Vorhies said he became concerned about how the company was curating data to generate AI while he was working for Google.

He claims that the data used by Google staffers is biased with social justice or leftist values that adhere to certain narratives.

“AI is a product of the data that gets fed into it,” Vorhies told EpochTV’s “Crossroads” show on January 5.

“If you want to create an AI that’s got social justice values … you’re going to only feed it information that confirms that bias,” Vorhies explained.

“So by biasing the information, you can bias the AI.”

“You can’t have an AI that collects the full breadth of information and then becomes biased, despite the fact that the information is unbiased.”

In 2017, Tencent, a Chinese big tech company, shut down an AI service after it started to criticize the Chinese Communist Party.

Tencent, a video game maker and the owner of WeChat, offered a free service for its users, letting them chat with an AI character. The chatbots, Little Bing and Baby Q, could talk on a variety of topics and grew smarter as they interacted with users, according to a report by Japanese public broadcasting’s NHK World.

When a user posted a message saying, “Hurray for the Communist Party,” Tencent’s chatbot replied, “Are you sure you want to hurray to such a corrupt and incompetent [political system]?” according to the report.

When the user asked the AI program about Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s “Chinese Dream” slogan, the AI wrote back that the dream meant “immigrating to the United States.”

Another example of AI exhibiting unexpected behavior was Tay, a chatbot developed by Microsoft for 18 to 24-year-olds in the United States for entertainment purposes.

Tay, launched in 2016, was supposed to learn from users it was conversing with, but after trolls on Twitter exploited its learning ability, Tay began spouting a variety of offensive and obscene comments. Microsoft shut down the chatbot after only 16 hours.

Vorhies believes that the Tay incident was an intelligence operation, intended to spawn machine learning (ML) fairness research in academia and Google.

ML fairness, as applied by Google, is a system that uses artificial intelligence to censor information processed by the company’s main products such as Google Search, Google News, and YouTube, Vorhies said.

It classifies all data found on the platform, in order to determine which information is to be amplified and which is to be suppressed, Vorhies explained.

Machine learning fairness causes what can be found on the internet to constantly evolve, so results displayed in response to a query may differ from those returned for the same query in the past, he said.

If a user searches for neutral topics—for example, baking—the system will give the person more information about baking, Vorhies said. However, if someone looks for blacklisted items or politically sensitive content, the system will “try not to give [the user] more of that content” and will present alternative content instead.

Using machine learning fairness, a tech company “can shift that Overton window to the left,” Vorhies said, according to the Epoch Times.

“Then people like us are essentially programmed by it.”

The Overton Window refers to a range of political policies considered to be acceptable in public discourse at a given time.

Some experts in machine learning believe that data collected from the real world already includes biases that exist in society.

Thus systems that use it as is could be unfair.

If AI uses “an accurate machine learning model” to learn from existing data collected from the real world, it “may learn or even amplify problematic pre-existing biases in the data based on race, gender, religion or other characteristics,” Google says on its “ai.google” cloud website, under “Responsible AI practices.”

“The risk is that any unfairness in such systems can also have a wide-scale impact,” the site says.

“Thus, as the impact of AI increases across sectors and societies, it is critical to work towards systems that are fair and inclusive for all.”

To illustrate how machine learning should be evaluated from the fairness perspective, Google provides an example of an app to help kids select age-appropriate books from a library that has both adult and children’s books.

If the app selects an adult book for reading by children, it may expose children to age-inappropriate content and may upset their parents.

However, according to the company’s inclusive ML guide, flagging children’s books that contain LGBT themes as inappropriate is also “problematic.”

The goal of fairness in machine learning is “to understand and prevent unjust or prejudicial treatment of people related to race, income, sexual orientation, religion, gender, and other characteristics historically associated with discrimination and marginalization, when and where they manifest in algorithmic systems or algorithmically aided decision-making,” Google says in its inclusive ML guide.

Sara Robinson, a staff developer relations engineer at Google, discussed the topic in an article on Google’s cloud website. Robinson called fairness in machine learning the process of understanding bias introduced by the data feeding the AI, and ensuring that the AI “provides equitable predictions across all demographic groups.”

“While accuracy is one metric for evaluating the accuracy of a machine learning model, fairness gives us a way to understand the practical implications of deploying the model in a real-world situation,” Robinson said.

A former senior engineer at Google and YouTube, Vorhies said: “Censoring is super expensive. You literally have to go through all the pieces of information that you have, and curate it.”

If the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) flags a social media account, the social media company puts that account on its “blacklist” which then goes to the AI, Vorhies said. Keywords are important because “the AI likes to make decisions when it has labels on things.”

Labeling groups of data into categories facilitates machine learning in AI.

For instance, the AI for self-driving cars uses labeling to distinguish between a person, the street, a car, or the sky.

It labels key features of those objects and looks for similarities between them. Labeling can be performed manually or assisted by software.

Suppressing a person on social media is done by AI based on data labels curated by the company’s staff, Vorhies explained.

The AI then decides whether the person’s posts are allowed to trend or will be de-amplified.

Vorhies worked at YouTube from 2016 to 2019 and said the company applied similar practices.

YouTube, a Google subsidiary, had something like a “dashboard of classifications that were being generated by their machine learning fairness,” the whistleblower said.

The AI knew, based on history and the current content, how to label a person, e.g., as a right-wing talk show host, he explained.

“Then someone sitting in the back room—I don’t know who this was—was doing the knobs of what is allowed to get amplified, based upon [their] personal interests.”

Google’s search engine considers mainstream media authoritative and boosts content accordingly, Vorhies said.

“These mainstream, leftist organizations are ranked within Google as having the highest authoritative value.”

For example, if someone searches for information about a local election, “the first five links [in the search results] are going to be what the mainstream media has to say about that,” Vorhies said.

“So they can redefine reality.”

If Wikipedia changes its view on something and starts to consider this matter a “conspiracy theory and not real,” people will be confused about what to think about it.

Most do not know that there is psychological warfare and an influence operation that is directly targeting their minds, Vorhies said.

BOMBSHELL: Suspect Please GUILTY To Trump Assassination Attempt

(SNews) – Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, 55, a dual citizen of Canada and France, pleaded guilty today to sending threatening letters containing homemade ricin in September 2020 to then-President Donald J. Trump at the White House and to eight Texas State law enforcement officials.

“There is no place for political violence in our country, and no excuse for threatening public officials or endangering our public servants,” said U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew M. Graves. “We hope this resolution will serve as a warning that using our mail system to send a toxic substance and other threats of this type will cost you your freedom for many years.”

U.S. Attorney Alamdar S. Hamdani said: “This woman did not succeed in her efforts to poison numerous public officials in our district, but her actions still created fear and stress for many of these dedicated public servants.

“We are grateful for the hard work of the FBI and our other law enforcement partners in identifying and apprehending her.”

David Sundberg, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office, said:

“In addition to her intended targets, Pascale Ferrier’s reckless actions could have harmed postal employees, first responders, or innocent bystanders.

“Today’s plea agreement demonstrates the FBI’s and our partners’ determination to investigate and bring to justice those who seek to harm or intimidate government officials or law enforcement officers.

Special Agent in Charge Oliver E. Rich, Jr., of the FBI San Antonio Division said:

“Threats against public officials and law enforcement are unconscionable and will not be tolerated.

The FBI remains committed to working with our partner investigative agencies to protect all Americans from threats of violence and harm.”

DOJ issued a statement that said:

“According to court documents, Ferrier admitted that she made ricin at her residence in Quebec, Canada, in September 2020. Ricin toxin is a deadly poison made from the waste material left over from processing castor beans.

“Ferrier placed the ricin in envelopes containing letters she wrote to then-President Trump at the White House and to eight Texas State law enforcement officials.

“Ferrier had been detained in the State of Texas for around ten weeks in the spring of 2019, and she believed that the law enforcement officials were connected to her period of detention.

“In early September 2020, Ferrier used the Twitter social media service to propose that someone should “please shoot [T]rump in the face.”

“The letters in the envelopes contained threatening language, and the letter addressed to then-President Trump instructed him to “[g]ive up and remove [his] application for this election.” Ferrier mailed each of the threatening ricin letters from Canada to the United States.

“Ferrier then drove a car from Canada to the Peace Bridge Border Crossing in Buffalo, New York, on Sept. 20, 2020, where border patrol officials found her in possession of a loaded firearm, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and other weapons, and arrested her. Ferrier has remained in custody.

“Ferrier pleaded guilty to prohibitions with respect to biological weapons in two separate criminal cases before the Honorable Dabney L. Friedrich of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

“One case was brought in the District of Columbia, and the other was brought in the Southern District of Texas and transferred to the District of Columbia for purposes of plea and sentencing.

“The Honorable Dabney L. Friedrich scheduled the sentencing hearing for April 26, 2023, when Ferrier will be sentenced to 262 months in prison if the Court accepts the plea agreements.

“The investigation was handled by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and San Antonio Field Office. Assistance was provided by the United States Secret Service and the United States Postal Inspection Service,” DOJ said.

JUST IN: Colin Kaepernick RETURNS, Tries To Smear Top Republican

(SNews) – Colin Kaepernick surfaced to try to smear House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and failed miserably. Colin has a new Hulu documentary out called Killing County. It’s described by Kaepernick as “one of the most powerful projects I’ve been involved with.”

It is directed by Michaela Dowd, narrated by André Holland, and executive produced by Kaepernick and Robe Imbriano. The documentary investigates the death of Jorge Ramirez in 2013 following a shootout with several police officers in a hotel parking lot. Ramirez was an alleged informant for Bakersfield Police.

The synopsis says: “The series takes a look at Bakersfield, a big city with the soul of a small town deep in California’s heartland, where things are not always what they seem. A deadly hotel shooting makes the Ramirez family question everything they know about their town.

“Desperate to find out what really happened to their loved one, they soon learn they are not alone in their tragedy and fight for the truth.

“Killing County is a story of twists and turns, alleged corruption and cover-up. Raising the question: who do you turn to when the ones who are supposed to serve and protect you are the ones you can’t trust,” the synopsis says.

“I knew the homicide rate in Bakersfield was high,” says a woman during the trailer. “I didn’t really know what that meant until I got here.”

“They’re not supposed to be judge, jury and executioner,” says another woman in the trailer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“Ramirez’s family details how the decision to “call the cops on the cops,” evolved into a concerted effort by them and others in the town to address the “deadliest law enforcement in the country per capita,” with the most officer-involved shootings in the country.

“Former police officers — including one who was valorized but involved in illegal drug operations, along with other families affected by local police shootings and experts come together to unravel how alleged corruption and cover-ups have plagued the town.

“It also traces how the community pushes back with protests and calls for accountability, as one of Ramirez’s family members is seen asking, “Who holds these people accountable?”

So you may be wondering what in the hell does this have to do with Speaker McCarthy? According to Colin, the “crime thriller” takes place in ‘Kevin McCarthy’s district.’

That’s it. By that logic is Barack Obama responsible for the mayhem in Chicago?

Trying to smear McCarthy over what happens in his district is a new low even Kaepernick.

Colin said:

“A true crime thriller we made set in Kevin McCarthy’s district. The highest homicide rate.

“The most crime. The most police executions. Welcome to Killing County.”

SHOCK REPORT: Global Elites Threaten Elon Musk with ‘Sanctions’ If He Refuses To Censor

(SNews) – A powerful World Economic Forum (WEF) speaker has threatened Elon Musk with “sanctions” if he refuses to “behave” by complying with demands to censor free speech on Twitter.

EU Commission VP for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova blasted Musk from the WEF’s annual gathering in Davos, Switzerland.

The top EU technocrat issued the threat while asserting that Musk has not “behaved in a decent way.”

Jourova took aim at Musk for his efforts to eliminate censorship from his recently acquired social media platform.

During the summit in the luxury Swiss ski resort, Jourova made repeated calls for more censorship to tackle so-called “misinformation” and “disinformation.”

The EU regulator joined former CNN host Brian Stelter for a WEF panel discussion and, with a straight face, blasted those who spread “disinformation.”

“The time of the Wild West is over,” Jourova said while speaking to EuroNews from outside the event.

“We will have the Digital Services Act [DSA].

“We will have the Code of Practice as a part of this legislation.”

“So, after Mr. Musk took over Twitter with his ‘freedom of speech absolutism,’ we are the protectors of freedom of speech as well,” she added.

“But at the same time, we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on.

“So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise there will be sanctions.”

WATCH:

Jourova’s justification is a complete misnomer, however, as illegal content is already banned on Twitter.

She appears to be trying to conflate illegal content with speech deemed to be “offensive” in an attempt to make the two indistinguishable.

In a separate video interview, Jourova suggested that Musk had not “behaved” in a “decent” way like his predecessors at Twitter.

In other words, he refused to comply with demands and allow the draconian censorship agenda to be re-imposed.

“We have the rules which have to be complied with and otherwise there will be sanctions,” barked Jourova, an unelected bureaucrat.

Jourova previously attracted controversy at Davos for declaring that America would soon have similar “hate speech” laws to Europe.

Her comments caused outrage as Jourova is effectively calling for the elimination of the First Amendment.

“Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S., I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourova said.

Throughout the elitist summit, technocrats pushed the idea that there needs to be a continuing crackdown on “hate and misinformation.”

Criticisms of “hate speech,” misinformation,” and “disinformation” are used as contrived justifications designed to censor speech that is critical of their own agenda.

SHOCK: Over Half of California’s 2022 Mail-In Ballots Are Still Unaccounted For

(SNews) – Over half of all of the mail-in ballots issued for the 2022 midterm elections and primaries in California are still unaccounted for, a nonprofit has revealed.

According to Public Interest Legal Foundation, a conservative nonprofit group based in Indianapolis, Indiana, mail-in voting during the 2022 elections was a disaster.

Including both the primary and the general elections, the new law resulted in the rejection of 226,250 mail-in ballots by state election officials, the report said.

The news follows a major push for mail-in voting from Democrats across the country.

Following the Democrats’ success with mail-in voting during the 2020 election, ostensibly due to the pandemic, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed AB 37 into law the following year.

The law makes vote-by-mail a permanent feature of future elections in the state, whether they are able to vote in person or not.

A so-called “voter integrity” bill, AB 37 allows the state to send a mail-in ballot to every active registered voter.

A news release from Newsom’s office said the measure would “increase access to democracy and enfranchise more voters.”

“As states across our country continue to enact undemocratic voter suppression laws, California is increasing voter access, expanding voting options, and bolstering elections integrity and transparency,” the governor said.

In the general election, PILF reported that 47.8 percent of ballots were rejected because they arrived late.

Another 39.8 percent were due to a signature mismatch and 9.8 percent had been submitted without a signature.

Others were rejected because voters were recorded as having already voted (0.6 percent) or had failed to provide an ID (0.5 percent).

In some cases, the ballot was missing entirely from the envelope (0.5 percent).

Equally concerning, PILF claims that 10 million ballots — over half of the ballots sent out — are still unaccounted for.

PILF provided ballot data for the general election.

The state sent out a total of 22,184,707 ballots.

Of those, 9,781,328 were accepted, 120,432 were rejected, and 1,391,422 voters cast their ballots in person.

This leaves 10,891,525 that remain unaccounted for.

So much for enfranchising more voters.

When one considers how close many of the races in the state ended up, this is especially concerning.

The PILF report included a quote from the group’s president, J. Christian Adams: “Mail ballots disenfranchise.

“There are many reasons mail ballots fail ultimately to count.

“No one casting a ballot at home can correct an error before it’s too late.

“California’s vote-by-mail demonstration should serve as a warning to state legislators elsewhere.”

Perhaps the worst aspect of mail-in voting is that it’s become an invitation for voter fraud.

Many of us recall the 2005 Commission on Federal Election Reform co-chaired former President Jimmy Carter and former U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker, III, a Republican.

The bipartisan commission concluded, “Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”

Unfortunately, it looks like this controversial practice is here to stay.

Democrats have lobbied for universal absentee voting for a long time.

The 2020 pandemic handed them a golden opportunity to implement mail-in voting on an unprecedented scale.

It also opened the door to its close cousins, early voting and ballot harvesting.

And they are not about to let it go as these practices overwhelmingly help Democrats.

This means that if Republicans ever plan to win another election, we need to hop on the bandwagon fast.

Republicans have long supported the tradition of in-person voting on Election Day.

Unfortunately, by then, Democrat candidates who have been getting out the vote for weeks, are way ahead of their Republican rivals.

And Republicans start the day with a serious vote deficit.

We all recall the voting machine issues in the state of Arizona on Election Day.

People were forced to wait in long lines for hours in some cases.

How many of them left because it was just not worth their effort?

Or they simply had other obligations such as work?

In a perfect world, voters would be required to show up on Election Day to cast their ballots.

But that perfect world no longer exists.

We must master vote-by-mail and the other techniques that have worked so well for Democrats in the past few election cycles, or we will continue to lose otherwise winnable races.

BREAKING: Trump Swoops In To DEFEND Mike Pence

(SNews) – President Donald Trump ha put his personal feelings aside and spoken out to defend his former vice president after classified documents were discovered in Mike Pence’s Indiana home.

Trump said: “Mike Pence is an innocent man.

“He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone.”

Pence’s lawyer Greg Jacob said, “A small number of documents bearing classified markings that were inadvertently boxed and transported to the personal home of the former vice president at the end of the last administration.

“Vice President Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence and understands the high importance of protecting sensitive and classified information and stands ready and willing to cooperate fully with the National Archives and any appropriate inquiry.”

Jacobs added that Pence had “engaged outside counsel out of an abundance of caution” after the Biden documents were found.

According to KRCA: “Jacob said the Pence documents were immediately secured in a locked safe.

“According to a follow-up letter from the lawyer dated Jan. 22, FBI agents visited Pence’s residence the night of Jan. 19 to collect the documents that had been secured.

“He was still in Washington at the time.

“A total of four boxes containing copies of administration papers —- two in which ‘a small number’ of papers bearing classified markings were found, and two containing ‘courtesy copies of vice presidential papers’ were discovered.

“Arrangements were made to deliver those boxes to the National Archives Monday.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said:

“Former Vice President Mike Pence reached out today about classified documents found at his home in Indiana.

“He has agreed to fully cooperate with congressional oversight and any questions we have about the matter.

“Former Vice President Pence’s transparency stands in stark contrast to Biden White House staff who continue to withhold information from Congress and the American people.”

BREAKING: Top Trump Enemy Finally Put On NOTICE

(SNews) – Former secretary of state Mike Pompeo has a new book, Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America Love, which will hit the shelves next week. In it, Mike takes a swipe at Nikki Haley, Jared Kushner, and Trump’s former National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Pompeo accuses Haley of plotting with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to get rid of Mike Pence and get herself named vice-president. Pompeo claims Haley “played” Trump’s then-chief of staff John Kelly.

“As best Kelly could tell,” Pompeo writes, “they were presenting a possible ‘Haley for vice-president’ option. I can’t confirm this, but Kelly was certain he had been played, and he was not happy about it. Clearly, this visit did not reflect a team effort but undermined our work for America.”

But he saves his harshest criticism for Bolton who he said belongs in jail.

Bolton, Pompeo said, should “be in jail for spilling classified information.”

Pompeo also said he hopes to testify against Bolton if John ever faces criminal charges.

Bolton fired back during a CNN interview:

“What he knows, in fact — or should know — is that my book went through a four-month-long pre-publication review process precisely to make sure there was no classified information in the book.

“It was arduous at times I can tell you.

“The National Security Council senior director responsible for that review cleared the book.

“And inside the White House, because Donald Trump didn’t want the book published before the election, he fired the senior director, a career employee of the National Archives, from her job and tried to get another review going.

“If he didn’t know about it, it’s incompetence in writing the book for not checking out the facts before he put it down on paper.

“And if he did know about it, that’s malicious and well beyond reckless to say things like that,” Bolton said.

BREAKING: Republicans Launch PAYBACK Against Covid Tyrants

(SNews) – House Republicans have introduced multiple bills that seek to “address” the “overreach” by “tyrannical government officials” who sought to “maintain control over Americans” during the pandemic.

The effort is led by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) who announced the move in a press release on Monday.

“Now with a Republican majority in the House, we have a better opportunity to pass legislation that reverses COVID vaccine and mask mandate policies set by fanatics who seek to maintain control over Americans,” Biggs said.

“These power-hungry individuals are rejecting science,” he added.

“Covid cases and deaths remain low.

“Normal life has returned.

“Most importantly, individuals should be making their own Covid and healthcare choices—not tyrannical government officials.

“All types of Covid-related mandates have got to go and these pieces of legislation help us get there.”

The push includes reintroducing six pieces of legislation.

The first bill, H.R. 125, seeks to repeal mask mandates on public transportation.

Biggs first introduced the proposal in July 2021, and it was co-sponsored by seven other GOP congressmen.

The second bill includes H.R. 118, the No Vaccine Passports Act.

First introduced in April 2021, the legislation would prohibit the federal government from issuing any standardized documentation that could be used to certify a U.S. citizen’s Covid status to a third party, such as an airline.

The bill would also ban proof of Covid vaccination as a requirement to access any federal or congressional property or services.

A third bill, H.R. 119, the Freedom from Mandates Act, would ban federal vaccine mandates.

“The American people must be allowed to make their own health care decisions,” Biggs wrote when he co-sponsored the bill in September 2021. “It is their right.”

The fourth bill, H.R. 117, would “prohibit any entity that receives Federal funds from the Covid relief packages from mandating employees receive a COVID-19 vaccine.”

A fifth bill, H.R. 103, would prohibit the Secretary of Transportation from setting a requirement that air carriers and foreign air carriers mandate an individual test negative for Covid to travel on an airline carrier.

The final bill, the No Mandates Act, says, “No agency may issue any rule regulations, or guidance requiring any individual to receive a vaccination for COVID-19.”

Biggs was recently one of 20 GOP holdouts who sought to block Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) from becoming House speaker.

The Arizona congressman briefly sought the role himself, with McCarthy later winning in a 15th round of voting.

The Arizona Republican has been rumored as a potential Senate candidate in 2024.

If he were to be the top GOP candidate, he would likely face independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and recently announced Democratic candidate Rep. Ruben Gallegos.

SHOCK: Biden Gives MILLIONS To Firm at Center of Wuhan Lab Leak

(SNews) – Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has awarded a $3 million taxpayer-funded grant to the company at the center of the Wuhan lab leak scandal.

The firm, EcoHealth Alliance, has been awarded the multi-year grant by Biden’s Department of Defense (DOD).

The company claims it will use the tax dollars to fund a program aimed at “combatting weapons of mass destruction.”

The funding was revealed by USA Spending, the U.S. government’s official source for spending data.

EcoHealth Alliance will receive $3 million in funding from the DOD between December 12, 2022, and Dec. 11, 2025, the data shows.

The company says it will utilize the multi-million-dollar grant to “reduce the threat of viral spillover from wildlife in the Philippines.”

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA), also known as Assistance Listings, listed the government funding as part of scientific research aimed at “combating weapons of mass destruction.”

The objective of the program:

To support and stimulate basic, applied, and advanced research at educational or research institutions, non-profit organizations, and commercial firms, which support the advancement of fundamental knowledge and understanding of the sciences with an emphasis on exploring new and innovative research for combating or countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

The grant was provided directly by the DOD’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

The DTRA’s mission is to “provide cross-cutting solutions to enable the Department of Defense, the United States Government, and international partners to Deter strategic attack against the United States and its allies; Prevent, reduce, and counter WMD and emerging threats; and Prevail against WMD-armed adversaries in crisis and conflict.”

EcoHealth Alliance has been receiving government funding since 2008, USA Spending revealed.

In 2020, the U.S. government provided the company with nearly $25 million in taxpayer money.

In total, EcoHealth Alliance received $79.4 million.

Almost 48 percent of the total amount has come from Assistance Listings with the purpose of “combatting weapons of mass destruction.”

More than 52% of EcoHealth Alliance’s total funding from the U.S. government has been provided by the DTRA.

In September, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which was headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci at the time, awarded EcoHealth Alliance with $3.3 million in funding over five years.

The NIH grant funds a project to analyze the “potential for future bat coronavirus emergence in Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam.”

Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance previously conducted controversial bat coronavirus experiments at the Chinese Communist Party-controlled Wuhan Institute of Virology.

There have been accusations that EcoHealth Alliance carried out gain-of-function experiments at the notorious Chinese biosafety level 4 lab.

Some have blamed EcoHealth Alliance’s research for the possible Wuhan lab leak theory.

BREAKING: Facebook Caught RED-HANDED Letting Gov’t Censor Americans

(Snews) – Facebook’s parent company Meta gave the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) de facto access to its platforms to censor so-called “misinformation,” newly emerged emails show.

The company allowed officials from the federal health agency to effectively police content on Facebook and Instagram.

In what some are calling the “Facebook Files,” the revelation was revealed in confidential emails that emerged thanks to a court case – the state of Missouri suing the Biden administration.

The emails show that Facebook and Instagram representatives and the CDC not only kept in touch at all times, but that the Big Tech giant also “routinely asked government health officials to vet claims relating to the virus, mitigation efforts such as masks, and vaccines.”

In turn, the CDC kept a watchful eye on what speech was allowed on Facebook.

It also decided on what policies toward censorship of “inconvenient” Covid topics applied.

The taxpayer-funded agency had no problem instructing the social network behemoth how to behave in these instances.

Robbie Soave, a senior editor for Reason, revealed some examples of what was happening in a series of tweets citing the emails and providing screenshots.

One shows that in May 2021, CDC started to get involved in “vetting” content on Facebook that concerns Covid vaccines.

And CDC had the last word on what was allowed to remain online as “accurate.”

Other emails show that Facebook (Meta) made sure the CDC was given de facto power to police Covid “misinformation.”

At the same time, Facebook was flagging content for the CDC and consulting with the agency on claims that could “contribute to vaccine refusals.”
