The Biden administration released some 180 million barrels of oil from America’s emergency stockpile ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, ostensibly to try to get a grip on the skyrocketing price of gas at the pump, with the reserve subsequently tumbling to its lowest levels since 1983.
Tasked with the purchase of three million barrels of sour crude oil for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in February, the US Department of Energy has reportedly rejected multiple offers from producers, hoping to get a better deal.
Informed sources told US business media that the offers the DoE has received so far have been turned down due to prices being deemed too high, and for failing to meet other requirements, which were not outlined in any detail.
The failure to get a deal means the purchase will be put off until an unspecified later date, the Energy Department has confirmed in a statement.
The U.S. Capitol Police arrested Micki Witthoeft, mother of Ashli Babbitt, on Capitol grounds on the two-year anniversary of the Capitol Hill Riot.
Babbitt is the only person killed during the riot.
Lt. Michael Byrd fatally shot the unarmed Babbitt when she tried to force her way into the Capitol Building.
The police claimed Witthoeft committed traffic violations:
The January 6 committee posted many records online but didn’t pay close enough attention.
The records included 2,000 Social Security numbers belonging to members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, visitors to the White House, Republicans, and even their family members:
While the spreadsheet with the numbers was taken down Wednesday, the high-profile nature of the people whose data was exposed probably puts them at an “elevated risk” because the information would be especially useful to intelligence agencies, said James Lee, chief operating officer of the Identity Theft Resource Center, a nonprofit organization that advises victims of identity crimes and compromises.
Lee recommended that people listed follow common tips for victims of identity crimes, including freezing their credit, using a multi-factor authentication app for their online accounts and setting up credit and account monitoring.
Exposed individuals don’t appear to have been notified about the leak. The Government Publishing Office (GPO), which originally published the file, did not respond to a request for comment on whether it planned to notify people whose Social Security numbers were exposed.
Kevin McCarthy's popularity remains in the headlines each day that Congress pushes back on his bid to become speaker of the House.
Although McCarthy's rise to the top job in the House has been so far thwarted, there has been a consistent band of supporters behind him despite the drama.
However, claims on social media suggest that—in contrast to the relatively few fellow Republican members disapproving of him—the GOP's actual voter base is far less enamored with the party leader.
On Monday, ICAN obtained confirmation of disturbing information about Oxford-AstraZeneca’s covid “vaccine” from the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products (“MHRA”).
Informed Consent Action Network (“ICAN”), through its attorneys, submitted a Freedom of Information request to the MHRA in April 2022 seeking information relating to its authorisation of the AstraZeneca, as well as Janssen, Moderna, and Pfizer covid “vaccines.” After MHRA initially denying the request and ICAN resubmitting a request with a narrower scope, MHRA finally provided 166 pages of records containing the studies MHRA relied on to authorise AstraZeneca’s covid injection for use en mass.
One of these records was a study on mice which investigated the biodistribution of the AstraZeneca “vaccine.” It revealed that the viral vector DNA did not remain localised in the injection site but instead migrated to other organs. Disturbingly, the study found vector DNA in the sciatic nerves, bone marrow, livers, lungs, and spleens of the mice following vaccination.
Additionally, in its Marketing Authorisation Application, AstraZeneca stated that because vulnerable populations – such as pregnant and lactating women and immunocompromised persons – were excluded from the studies, the safety of the vaccine in these groups was unknown.

After a dramatic 14th vote which saw Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) Kevin McCarthy's 14th bid for House Speaker, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has finally won - ending a dramatic impasse.
Ex-Trump advisor and well-known foreign policy ultra-hawk John Bolton is teasing the possibility that he'll run for the White House in 2024.
He said in a "Good Morning Britain" interview which aired Friday that "I wouldn’t run as a vanity candidate. If I didn’t think I could run seriously then I wouldn’t get in the race." And then he said, "I would get in to win the nomination and I would do it primarily on the basis that we need a much stronger foreign policy."
After days of negotiations, Rep. Kevin McCarthy is considering cutting the Pentagon budget by $75 billion in order to gain the support of roughly two dozen Republicans who have opposed his bid to become speaker of the House, according to Bloomberg.
The cut is reportedly part of an “emerging deal” that would cap government spending at 2022 levels, meaning that it would return defense spending to $782 billion — a sharp drop from this year’s allotment of $857 billion.
According to Andrew Lautz, Director of Federal Policy at National Taxpayers Union and regular RS contributor, this could end up being a bigger cut than people think.
Seventy-five years. That’s how long Pfizer and the FDA tried to hide the Pfizer documents from public view — long after just about everyone affected is dead. It wasn’t until renowned attorney Aaron Siri led a FOIA case against the FDA that a federal judge ordered the documents to be released in 108 days, the same amount of time it took the FDA to approve the Covid-19 injections.
Within the Pfizer documents is Document 5.3.6 (Post-Marketing Experience), a cumulative analysis of adverse event reports occurring in the 90 days after the public rollout of the Covid-19 mRNA injection. And within that report, 275 people suffered a stroke suspected to be attributed to the vaccine between days 1 to 41; 50% of these occurred within the first 48 hours after injection.
It’s important to note that strokes are life-altering events, which occur “when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes.”—Mayoclinic
It’s a medical emergency. And prompt treatment is crucial. “Many stroke survivors experience paralysis on one side of the body or inability to move a specific part of the body.” And “Some stroke survivors may experience trouble using or understanding language (aphasia) or have trouble swallowing liquids or foods (dysphagia).”—thestrokefoundation.org
Sadly, all 300 stroke adverse event reports affecting 275 different patients within Pfizer Document 5.3.6 were classified as “serious.” One in five (61 of the 300) strokes was fatal, 32% did not resolve, 28% had an “unknown” outcome, and three suffered very rare deep brain clots (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis).
Hundreds of Chicago teachers and school officials sexually groomed and assaulted students last school year, according to a report released this week.
The Chicago Public Schools Office of the Inspector General released its annual report Sunday, saying it substantiated more than 300 misconduct allegations out of more than 600 complaints for the 2021-22 school year.
An OIG investigation concluded one teacher groomed and sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student three times. That teacher was charged with multiple counts of sexual assault. After a November 2022 trial, the teacher was acquitted on all counts, the report said, despite evidence provided by the student and social media records.
Another investigation revealed a former JROTC staff member had sex with a high school girl over the course of a year when she was 16 to 17 years old, the report said. The girl was also given alcohol and marijuana and purchased marijuana for him, the OIG said.
