There’s Change in the Air!

It’s Friday. We’re in the early stages of the “Dog Days of Summer.” It’s hot…muggy…and it’s Summer!

We’re NOT publishing a regular story today at TruthNewsNetwork. But we ARE sharing something very important: PLANS. We at TNN are considering making some structural changes to our live M-F streaming show, “TNN Live!” It for a year has been streaming live two hours each Monday through Friday. Each show is kept in our catalog so that any and all can grab “free of charge” any show broadcast at the bottom of the story published each day. There’s a link posted there for anyone to click to listen to or download any show in mp3 format. Each show is also automatically uploaded to “iTunes Podcasts” and “Spotify Podcasts.” If you subscribe to either or both of these sites, write “TNN Live” in the search bar and immediately see our menu of podcasts you can hear.

Honestly, the changes we’re considering are to bring in more special guests and possibly even some guest hosts. But before we determine if we should change or not, we need your input. We’d like to hear from you regarding your thoughts on the existing format, what you dislike (if anything), and suggestions for changes to the show’s content and/or format. ANYTHING GOES! We will NOT be offended because of anything you tell us.

So here’s how we’d like for you to reach out to us. Because we respect your privacy, we will NOT ask for you to write us an email or text. In fact, a simple phone call message will be quicker and much easier for you to share your heart and mind. And we’ll even pay for the call!

Simply dial toll-free at 1-866-37TRUTH. That’s 1-866-378-7884. Let it ring until you hear a message greeting. It’s a short message. At the end of the message, you’ll hear a beep. After the beep just tell us your thoughts.

We want to continue the commitment we made to all of you from the inception of TruthNewsNetwork. That is for us to bring you facts, provide you behind-the-scenes information about important stories that you often hear only here — certainly not on mainstream media. We are NOT politically affiliated, although our political persuasion in total at TruthNewsNetwork is one of conservatism that protects the longstanding promises for our federal government to be “of, by, and for the People.”

This is YOUR website. “TNN Live” is YOUR streaming show. (We honestly feel that way) Because of that, it is critical we hear from you. Please take a moment and share your thoughts with us by calling us toll-free and leave a message at 1-866-37TRUTH, or 1-866-378-7884.



Our Saturday Bullet Points will be published as always Saturday morning while most of you are still in LaLa Land! You’ll be able to review the big stories of the week to make certain you missed nothing of importance while drinking fresh, Saturday AM coffee.

Big Pharma: Friends or Enemies of “The People?”

Every day, more physicians and scientists are telling us the dangers of the COVID jabs. And, every day, more doctors are joining with America’s Frontline Doctors who know hundreds of thousands of lives could have been saved had limelight-loving Tony Fauci not stated that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was dangerous and untested when in 2005, Fauci’s own National Institutes of Health stated that HCQ is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.

On May 9th, a Swedish paper reported that 1,000 attorneys and 10,000 physicians filed a lawsuit for violations of the Nuremberg Code.

Fauci is promoting COVID-19 injections worldwide, and he believes we should don face diapers every flu season. Control, control, control. Our dumbed-down American brothers and sisters obey like lemmings rushing to their own destruction.

The Commander in Chief, Joe Biden, insisted, “Deaths are down by 81% since April 2020.” With cocky belligerence, he went on to threaten Americans who don’t want to take the “vaccine,” saying, “those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price.” Then with malice, he threatened, “if they do not, states with low vaccination rates may see those rates, may see this progress, reversed. Ultimately, those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price. The vaccinated will continue to be protected against severe illnesses, but others may not be if you’re not vaccinated.”

Pure rubbish!

These biopharmaceutical companies are connected to every government stakeholder entity making millions and billions from American taxpayers. Their histories are anything but exemplary. The goal is taxpayer-funded cash infused into these companies. Safety and health are on the back burners. Let’s take a hard look at their histories.


Pfizer was started in 1849 by two German immigrants, cousins Charles Pfizer and Charles Erhart, and was initially a chemical company in New York. Pfizer is now an American multinational pharmaceutical corporation.

Pfizer partnered with a small Mainz, Germany company, BioNTech, founded in 2008, which developed the radical mRNA technique used to produce the new Corona vaccine. BioNTech signed an agreement with the Gates Foundation in September 2019, just before the announcement in Wuhan, China, of the Novel Coronavirus and just before BioNTech made its stock market debut. The agreement involved cooperation in developing new mRNA techniques to treat cancer and HIV.

BioNTech also has an agreement with one of the largest drug producers in China, Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (“Fosun Pharma”), to develop a version of its mRNA vaccine for novel coronavirus for the Chinese market. BioNTech is behind the covid vaccines being rushed out in China and the USA, and European Union.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is experimental and far from guaranteed safe, even though Pfizer, the EU, and the notorious Dr. Tony Fauci were ready to roll it out even before year-end to hundreds of millions of humans. The experimental technology is based on a rather new gene manipulation known as gene editing.

In a major article in the 2018 New York Council on Foreign Relations magazine, Foreign Affairs, Bill Gates effusively promoted the novel gene-editing CRISPR technology as being able to “transform global development.” He noted that his Gates Foundation had been financing gene editing developments for vaccines and other applications for a decade. But is the technology for breaking and splicing human genes so absolutely safe that it is worth risking a novel experimental vaccine never before used on humans? And especially on a virus that 99.75% of the public recovers from? Why a necessary vax?

Contrary to what Bill Gates claims, the scientific answer is “No.” It is not proven so safe, and Pfizer does not have a perfectly stellar record. They have done some wonderful work in the past, but they have also been devoid of true safety and efficacy in their promoted medications.

  • A tiny amount of Viagra is used to help premature infants as it widens the blood vessels inside the lungs, allowing them to function more efficiently and lowering their blood pressure as an added benefit. To promote Viagra, Pfizer actually conducted a global sexual habits survey in Malaysia.
  • Pfizer played a critical role in health and medicine in WWI and was instrumental in saving lives in WWII. Pfizer not only develops drugs for humans but also animals.
  • The company is active in the war against counterfeit drugs. Good!
  • They played both sides of the aisle in the 2016 election. Of course!
  • Their largest sales come from vaccines for adults and children.
  • They have a connected history to Parke-Davis in being an original medical marijuana provider.
  • They were convicted in court of violating RICO Racketeering laws in marketing of Neurontin and paid $142.1 million to settle charges.
  • Pfizer paid the largest fine, a $2.3 billion settlement with the DOJ for their off-shelf marketing of Bextra (Celebrex) in 2009.
  • Zantac lawsuits are ongoing. Claims that the heartburn med can be contaminated with a cancer-causing substance.
  • In the 1990s, Pfizer was involved in defective heart valves that led to the deaths of more than 100 people. Pfizer had deliberately misled regulators about the hazards. The company agreed to pay $10.75 Million to settle justice department charges for misleading regulators.
  • Pfizer paid more than $60 Million to settle a lawsuit over Rezulin, a diabetes medication that caused patients to die from acute liver failure.
  • Pfizer agreed to pay $430 Million in 2004 to settle criminal charges that it had bribed doctors to prescribe its epilepsy drug Neurontin for indications for which it was not approved.
  • Pfizer disclosed that it had paid nearly 4,500 doctors and other medical professionals some $20 Million for speaking on Pfizer’s behalf.
  • In 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced that it had reached a $45 Million settlement with Pfizer to resolve charges that its subsidiaries had bribed overseas doctors and other healthcare professionals to increase foreign sales.
  • Pfizer was sued in a U.S. federal court for using Nigerian children as human guinea pigs without the children’s parents’ consent.
  • Pfizer paid $75 Million to settle in Nigerian court for using an experimental antibiotic, Trovan, on the children. The company paid an additional undisclosed amount in the U.S. to settle charges here.
  • Pfizer had violated international law, including the Nuremberg Convention established after WWII, due to Nazi experiments on unwilling prisoners. (Sounds like Fauci and foster children.)
  • Amid widespread criticism of gouging developing countries for drugs, Pfizer pledged to give $50 million for an AIDS drug to South Africa. Later, however, Pfizer failed to honor that promise.

It sounds a lot like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Bill Gates does not own Pfizer Inc. However, in recent years, the Gates Foundation has given multi-million dollar grants to Pfizer for research purposes, and Bill Gates allegedly owns stock in the company.

From F. William Engdahl in New Eastern Outlook, Both US and EU authorities and presumably also Chinese waived the standard animal tests using ferrets or mice and have gone straight to human “guinea pigs.” Human tests began in late July and early August 2020. Three months is unheard of for testing a new vaccine. Several years is the norm. Because of the degree of global panic engendered by WHO over the coronavirus, caution is thrown to the wind. Vaccine makers all have legal indemnity, meaning they can’t be sued if people die or are maimed from the new vaccine. But the most alarming fact about the new Pfizer-BioNTech gene-edited vaccine is that the gene-edited mRNA for human vaccine application has never before been approved.

Notably, two-year peer-reviewed tests with mice fed genetically modified corn sprayed with Monsanto glyphosate-rich Roundup first showed cancer tumors after nine months as well as liver and other organ damage. Earlier, Monsanto company tests ended at three months and claimed no harm. A similar situation exists with the gene-edited mRNA vaccines being rushed out after less than 90 days of human tests.


(Mode RNA) has more than 20 experimental drugs and vaccines for cancer, infectious diseases, and other conditions in development, but none are close to being commercially available to patients. They have never developed a vaccine that made it through phase 3 clinical trials before now.

Results of Phase 3 study of the Covid-19 inoculation candidate was co-developed by the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotechnology company Mode-RNA, Inc., and Dr. Tony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, and focuses on vaccine technologies based on messenger RNA.

Stéphane Bancel is a French billionaire businessman. He is the chief executive officer and a 9% owner of Mode-RNA, the American biotechnology company founded in 2010. WSJ reported, “Bancel nurtured a high-stress environment at the Cambridge, MA, company, characterized by high expectations, sharp critiques of workers, and heavy employee turnover, according to current and former staffers. Mr. Bancel’s admonitions of some underlings in group meetings motivated some to do better and others to leave.”

Veteran investigative reporter Leo Hohmann discovered a 2017 Ted Talk presentation by Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Mode-RNA Inc., where he clearly explains in layperson’s language just what the mRNA technology does in vaccines. Zaks states they are “hacking the software of life” by injecting their own genetic code into humans. People are blindly lining up to get injected with a “treatment,” which is also a chemical device, an operating system, a synthetic pathogen, and a chemical pathogen production device.

What we are witnessing in this new class of “vaccines” is clearly the wedding together of digital technology born out of the computer age, with Darwinian biology and medicine. It is transhumanism. Mode-RNA describes its new vaccine as “a computer operating system.”

Janssen’s Johnson & Johnson

J&J is an American multinational corporation founded in 1886 that develops medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and consumer packaged goods. They are the world’s largest healthcare company.
Their COVID-19 inoculation was developed by Janssen Vaccines in Leiden, Netherlands, and its Belgian parent company Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of American company J&J.

On February 27, 2021, J&J’s vaccine against COVID-19 became the third vaccine to receive emergency use authorization (EUA) from the FDA.

The J&J vaccine is a single-dose adenovirus-based vaccine. It is a viral vector vaccine that uses a weakened live pathogen (adenovirus) as the delivery method (vector) for transporting a recombinant vaccine for COVID-19 and is given in a single dose, probably with yearly boosters as in pneumonia vaccines.

There was an 11-day pause with the J&J inoculation when the FDA and CDC identified a total of 15 cases of dangerous blood clots among nearly eight million recipients, all of which occurred in women between ages 18 and 59. Three of the women died, and seven remain hospitalized.

Many have bypassed this vaccine because of the use of aborted baby tissue to produce the vaccine. The vaccine itself does not include fetal cells. However, it is manufactured using fetal cells, as is the AstraZeneca vaccine. The origin of these cell lines is from an aborted baby’s retinal cells. Fetal cell lines were also used to produce hepatitis A, chickenpox, shingles vaccines, rubella, and many others. J&J is one of the largest companies in America catering to baby needs and is also ironically one of the leading corporate sponsors of abortion.

J&J used aborted fetal cell lines to manufacture its COVID-19 vaccine based on three sources on how it was produced. KHOU-11 cited the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, J&J itself, and Johns Hopkins Senior Scholar Dr. Amesh Adalja as sources for confirming this matter.

Here’s the bottom line, folks. The bodies of babies murdered in their mother’s wombs were used for scientific study and are daily sold throughout America and the world. Vaccine maker Dr. Stanley Plotkin testified in a deposition regarding the use of aborted baby tissues to grow vaccines.

The health care giant has faced its share of lawsuits. A Huffington Post investigation called J&J “America’s most admired lawbreaker.” They have been at the center of scandals and government investigations and have issued recalls of some of its drugs and devices. Consumers harmed by J&J products are suing the company. They question the company’s motives and say it puts profits over people.


AstraZeneca was founded in 1999 through the merger of the Swedish Astra AB and the British Zeneca Group and is now known for its COVID-19 Vax. UK-based drug company AstraZeneca focuses on drugs that treat Type 2 diabetes, cancer, and respiratory issues. The company’s first blockbuster drug was the numbing agent lidocaine, developed in 1948.

Unlike the other vaccine makers who were given orders for 100 million doses, AstraZeneca was given orders for 300 million doses. This disproportionate order was justified by the belief that the latter vaccine would be much cheaper than the others and that it would possibly be able to be stored in refrigerators and not the extremely low temperatures that are required for the Pfizer/BioNTech and Mode-RNA vaccines.

But they ran into trouble in phase 3 trials. The problem was with transverse myelitis (TM) in two study participants and delayed the development by FDA for seven weeks. However, this can occur without a vaccine, and FDA concurred. The doses need to be given 12 weeks apart for any efficacy whatsoever.

AstraZeneca announced that its vaccine is 70 percent effective, but a major dosing error during the trials may have affected the overall efficacy. Some clinical trial participants were mistakenly given half a dose rather than a full dose in their first round of shots. Researchers discovered that those who were given the weaker dosage produced a better immune response.

Side effects with AstraZeneca include blood clots, which have popped with other COVID injections, but AstraZeneca has been stopped in 18 to 24 countries because of blood clots. Fauci still wanted AstraZeneca okayed for the USA, but now he’s saying we may not need it.

AstraZeneca has had its share of legal trouble, paying more than $1 billion in federal fines and legal settlements for corrupting clinical trials and illegally promoting antipsychotics. It has also had to deal with several lawsuits filed by patients who say the drug maker’s products injured them.


If you’ve had COVID-19, you have an amazing array of antibodies given to you by the Creator who made your immune system, which should mean, you don’t need the jab.

The U.S. has had a patent on SARS and COVID, in general, since 2003. Huh? And there hasn’t been much in animal testing. These inoculations are not normal vaccines. Vaccines contain proteins, this is mRNA, which changes a person’s genetic makeup. Money is the object. Health and safety are rarely considered.

Before you submit to these inoculations, do research! More importantly, listen to every interview by Alex Newman. He has spoken to the experts who know the truth.

Saturday Bullet Points: April 24, 2021

Another week, another batch of big stories. That means a need for facts about the importance of those stories. That’s what we do here.

Take a look at each bullet point: read the first few sentences that describe these important events. If you need no details (or if you’ve seen them already), click on the blue arrow to go to a full story with details.

Have a great weekend!

Bullet Points

  • The news is out: Caitlyn Jenner has taken the plunge into politics — California politics. The transgender former Olympic champion (as a man) wants to represent the California people as Governor, and as a Republican! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Illegal border crossings into the U.S. through Mexico continue, and they continue to escalate in number. Most recently, 700+ Venezuelan migrants found their way into one border town, all in the last week!  Del Rio, TX seems to be the chosen spot for these illegals. Needless to say, Del Rio government officials are not very happy. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Truth News Network has kept you apprised of the status of tremendous voting irregularities in the November 2020 election process in Arizona, especially Maricopa County. The state legislature took the massive number of reports of fraud seriously and have been at war with the Maricopa County Election Board for months now. At question is a proposed forensic audit of ALL the election ballots. The audit is happening! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Have you wondered why it seems that Black Lives Matter has been given blanket “media protection” in the latest spate of riots around the country? Mainstream media outlets all ignore the fact that BLM’s involvement has been obvious. Their latest target is in Central Park in New York City. For complete details, click on this link:
  • What’s the latest “ism” to be used by the Left to demonize conservatives in the U.S.? “Critical Race Theory,” or “CRT.” What is it? It’s a “doctrine” created by Leftists elites who claim to know all there is about racism, ethnic culture, and, more importantly, what’s right and what’s wrong regarding racial unrest across the nation. Do you want more information about it? It’s out there, but NOT in Mainstream Media. For complete details, click on this link:
  • So what is Critical Race Theory? Let’s just say that it is NOT new, is a new tool to be used by those who supposedly are “experts” regarding all things racial, and is rapidly taking over the education system in the nation. You need to understand CRT and its dangers. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Did you see Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) from Minneapolis on Monday night calling for violence in the streets IF the desired verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial was not the one the jury chose? Of course, Maxine “knew” what the “right” verdict was. No realistic person can disagree with the judge in the Chauvin case who said (during the trial) Waters’ actions “could” be grounds for a Chauvin appeal, no matter what the verdict would be! Maxine has weighed in with her explanation for her actions. For complete details, click on this link:
  • It wasn’t too surprising that LeBron James’ tweet regarding the killing of a black teenager by a white policeman in Columbus, Ohio, was not censored or even blocked by the “Twitter Cancel Culture” gods. After all, he’s an NBA star, African American, and a Democrat! Obviously, Twitter has been blasted for its blatant hypocrisy. Of course, they have not responded, even though the tweet was based on false information. For complete details, click on this link:
  • The Transgender movement is flooding the nation, and it’s taking over the conversation about fairness in sports competitions. It all boils down to one question: Is it fair for biological males to compete as females in athletic competitions? Obviously, biological males have an advantage. In a meeting this past week one Texas Democrat politician announced that there are several more sexes that need to be considered in this conversation. In fact, there are six sexes! For complete details, click on this link:
  • The facts of the January 6th riot on Capitol Hill have been inflated in dramatic fashion by Democrats and the media. The tragic death of Capitol Policeman Sicknick was grossly misrepresented by all, including the police department he worked for. Congressman Ron Johnson has demanded an explanation for the reports of Sicknick’s death by the police force. For complete details, click on this link:

Black Patriotism

We constantly peruse the news to find the best of information and editorial thoughts and ideas to bring to you. Race and racism are two items significantly critical for Americans to investigate for themselves and find personal comfort levels with which to process all matters that daily find their way into our conversations. To that end, we found a source and an opinion we feel all Americans need to digest. This comes from an African American professor and podcaster who knows about critical race theory, racism, and the push to weaponize color against Americans to win totalitarian control over our population.

Meet Glenn Loury

There is a fashionable standoffishness characteristic of much elite thinking about blacks’ relationship to America—as exemplified, for instance, by the New York Times’s 1619 Project. Does this posture serve the interests, rightly understood, of black Americans? I think that it does not.

Indeed, a case can be made that the correct narrative to adopt today is one of unabashed black patriotism — a forthright embrace of American nationalism by black people. In what is arguably history’s greatest republic, Black Americans’ birthright citizenship is an inheritance of immense value. My answer for black Americans to Frederick Douglass’s famous question — “Whose Fourth of July?” — is, “Ours!”

Is this a venal, immoral, and rapacious bandit-society of plundering white supremacists, founded in genocide and slavery and propelled by capitalist greed, or a good country that affords boundless opportunities to all fortunate enough to enjoy the privileges and bear the responsibilities of citizenship? Of course, there is some warrant in the historical record for both sentiments, but the weight of the evidence overwhelmingly favors the latter. The founding of the United States of America was a world-historic event by means of which Enlightenment ideals about the rights of individual persons and the legitimacy of state power were instantiated for the first time in real institutions.

African slavery flourished at the time of the Founding, true enough. And yet, within a century of the Founding, slavery was gone, and people who had been chattel became citizens of the United States of America. Not equal citizens, not at first. That took another century. But African-descended Americans became, in the fullness of time, equal citizens of this republic.

Our democracy, flawed as it most surely is, nevertheless became a beacon to billions of people throughout what came to be known as the “free world.” We fought fascism in the Pacific and Europe and thereby helped to save the world. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, we faced down the horror that was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Moreover, we have witnessed here in America, since the end of the Civil War, the greatest transformation in the status of a serfdom people (which is, in effect, what blacks became after emancipation) to be found anywhere in world history.

This narrative of human liberty begins in the incredible trauma of the Civil War, with more than 600,000 dead in a country of 30 million. Some say that the war wasn’t fought to end slavery; it was fought to preserve the union. Lincoln, they say, would have been happy to see the union preserved even if slavery had persisted. I expect that this is correct, though he surely abhorred slavery. But the fact remains that the consequence of that war was, together with the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments, to make the chattel — the African slaves and their descendants — into citizens.

It shouldn’t have taken 100 years; they shouldn’t have been slaves in the first place. True enough. But slavery had been a commonplace human experience since antiquity. Emancipation — the freeing of slaves en masse, the abolition movement — was a new idea. A Western idea. The fruit of Enlightenment. An idea that was brought to fruition over a century and a half ago here, in the United States of America, liberating millions of people and creating the world we now inhabit.

This great and historic achievement surely would not have been possible without philosophical insights and moral commitments cultivated in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the West—ideas about the essential dignity of human persons and about what makes a government’s exercise of power over its people legitimate. But something new was created here in America at the end of the eighteenth century. Slavery was a holocaust out of which emerged something that actually advanced the morality and the dignity of humankind—namely, emancipation. The abolition of slavery and the incorporation of Africa-descended people into the body politic of the United States of America was an unprecedented achievement.

To those, like the influential writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, who dismisses the American dream as irrelevant to blacks or worse, I would ask, “Have you noticed what has happened here in the United States in the last century?”

The Swedish economist Gunnar Myrdal came to the United States in the late 1930s, with backing from the Carnegie Corporation, to survey the condition of “the Negro” in American society. In 1944, when he published his study, An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy, the modal occupation for African-American men was farm laborer. The typical occupation of African-American women was a domestic servant. The median family income of blacks relative to whites was about 50 percent. The status of African-American education, voting rights, and citizenship, and access to the professions was abysmal. This is within my lifetime.

In the last 75 years, a vast black middle class has developed. There are black billionaires. The influence of black people on the culture of America is stunning and has global resonance. Some 40 million strong, black Americans are the richest and most powerful population of African descent on the planet. There are 200 million Nigerians, and the gross national product of Nigeria is just about $1 trillion per year. America’s GNP is over $20 trillion a year, and we 40 million African-Americans have claim to roughly 10 percent of it. We have access to ten times the income of a typical Nigerian. What is more, the very fact that the cultural barons and elites of America—who run the New York Times and the Washington Post, who give out Pulitzer Prizes and National Book Awards, who make the grants at the MacArthur Foundation and run the human resources departments of corporate America—have bought into the new woke racial sensibility hook, line, and sinker gives the lie to the pessimism that the American dream doesn’t apply to blacks. It most certainly and emphatically does apply, and it is coming to fruition daily.

The central issue, then, is a question of narrative. Are we going to look through the dark lens of the U.S. as a racist, genocidal, white supremacist, illegitimate force? Or are we going to see it for what it has become over the course of the last three centuries: the greatest force for human liberty on the planet? This conflict of narratives is worth arguing about—with Ta-Nehisi Coates; with Colin Kaepernick; with the Black Lives Matter activists; with the officials who will exercise power in the Biden administration; and with the editorial staff of the New York Times. The narrative we blacks settle upon about the American project is fundamentally important to our nation’s future.

What’s In the So-Called Equality Act?

The House of Representatives passed the so-called Equality Act by a vote of 224 to 206. While Democrats have marketed this legislation as a simple civil rights law designed to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination, it is far from that.

The statutory language instead provides for an extreme remaking of all aspects of society, destroys the promise of equality for women, and threatens religious liberty and the privacy rights of all Americans, especially children. The proposed law also will upend state and federal protections of the unborn—yes, the Equality Act is about abortion too.

Here are the five facts about the Equality Act Americans need to know.

The Equality Act Is Deceptively Simple

The statutory language of the Equality Act seems simple enough, with the proposed law adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the list of protected classes in the five major parts, called titles, of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the Equality Act would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to: Title II, which addresses discrimination in public accommodations; Title III, which covers public facilities; Title IV, which regulates public education; Title VI, which requires nondiscrimination in federally assisted programs; and Title VII, which prohibits discrimination in employment.

“Sexual orientation” and “gender identity” would also be added to the Fair Housing Act, the Equality Credit Opportunity Act, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

The Devil Is in the Details

Adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the list of protected classes may seem straightforward enough, but the proposed law does more—much more. These additional provisions will prove devastating on many levels.

The breadth of The Equality Act flows, in part, from the proposed law’s expansion of various definitions throughout all titles of the Civil Rights Act. The term “sex” is redefined to include “sex stereotype,” “sex characteristics,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity,” as well as “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition.” “Gender identity” is defined broadly to “mean[] the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.”

The proposed Equality Act also redefines or expands several terms within each separate title of the Civil Rights Act. For instance, “public accommodations” will now include not merely stadiums but “any other place of or establishment that provides exhibition, entertainment, recreation, exercise, amusement, public gathering, or public display,” and “any establishment that provides a good, service, or program, including a store, shopping center, online retailer or service provider, salon, bank, gas station, food bank, service or care center, shelter, travel agency, or funeral parlor, or establishment that provides health care, accounting, or legal services,” as well as “any train service, bus service, car service, taxi service, airline service, station, depot, or other place of or establishment that provides transportation service.”

Of particular significance is The Equality Act’s express statement that “an establishment “shall not be construed to be limited to a physical facility or place,” as that language has the potential to reach federal, state, and private health insurance coverage and plans.

The Equality Act then adds four significant substantive provisions to federal law. First, the proposed law provides that “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition shall not receive less favorable treatment than other physical conditions.”

Next, The Equality Act provides that “an individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.’” Third, where sex is a bona fide occupational qualification, such as with personal caregivers in nursing homes, the act would require an employee to be considered qualified for that position, based on his or her gender identity, and not his or her sex.

Finally, the bill provides that The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 “shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under,” under The Equality Act, “or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.’’

The Gender Identity Provisions Are Extreme

The gender identity provisions of the proposed Equality Act are extreme in multiple ways. First, the statutory definition of “gender identity” incorporates language that is both anti-science and antithetical to Judeo-Christian teachings.

By casting an individual’s sex as something merely “designated” “at birth,” The Equality Act ignores the scientific reality of “the inherent, indelible biological differences between male and female [that] go far beyond external genitalia….Each cell in our body has a sex—the same sex, male or female.” It also ignores the theological understanding of the human person as a unity of body and soul.

While Americans may shrug at The Equality Act’s Orwellian use of language, they will be made to care because the proposed law defines “gender identity” so broadly that there is no limit to whom may demand to be treated legally as the opposite sex.

“Gender identity,” according to the act, “means the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.” Anyone, at any time, could declare a gender identity contrary to biological reality.

This conclusion is not some conservative conspiracy theory, either. Here’s what the leftist Women’s Liberation Front says about the broad definition of gender identity: “The bill doesn’t mention individuals with clinically diagnosed gender dysphoria, or undertaking surgical or hormonal transition, thus making clear that self-declared gender identity would be sufficient to claim protected legal status.”

The broad definition of “gender identity” is but a part of the problem: The bill’s substantive provisions will devastate the privacy rights of all Americans, especially girls and women.

Under the proposed law, an employer would be required to treat a man who identifies as a woman as a woman for purposes of sensitive jobs, such as law enforcement officials involved in strip searches or supervisors of locker rooms, or handling intimate care in hospitals or long-term care facility. The law currently allows prisoners, patients, or customers to require the government, hospitals, or businesses to staff those positions with an individual of the same sex. The Equality Act would instead mandate that employers allow men who identify as women to perform such invasive tasks.

The law would also require virtually every restroom, locker room, and dressing room in America to be open to individuals of the opposite sex, in accordance instead with the individual’s claimed gender identity. As the Women’s Liberation Front explained:

This means that American women will no longer be able to expect any single-sex facilities when using or being required to stay in:

Shared hospital rooms or wards

Locker rooms and public or group showers

Multi-stall bathrooms

Jails, prisons, or juvenile detention facilities

Homeless shelters

Overnight drug rehabilitation centers

Domestic violence or rape crisis shelters

It is not just American women — it is American girls. Whether in elementary, middle, or high school, in gymnasiums or swimming facilities, young girls will no longer have a guarantee of privacy or security.

The Equality Act will also require sports competitions and scholarship programs designated for girls and women to admit males if they proclaim a female gender identity, further harming women.

The Equality Act Is Also About Abortion

Although not mentioned by name in The Equality Act, “abortion” is also part and parcel of this proposed law. To understand this reality requires a brief legal primer on the current law concerning sex and pregnancy discrimination.

As Richard Doerfinger explained in his must-read article, “The ‘Equality Act’: Threatening Life and Equality,” Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits sex discrimination. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 amended that provision to prohibit discrimination based on “pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions” in employment, including in the provision of health insurance. Title VII, however, expressly provided that an employer was not required “to pay for health insurance benefits for abortion, except where the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus were carried to term . . .”

In contrast, while the Equality Act also defines sex to include “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition,” it includes no exclusion related to abortion, as there was in Title VII. Significantly, “The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, and at least one federal appellate court have held that ‘medical conditions related to pregnancy includes abortion.’” Thus, the Equality Act’s ban on pregnancy discrimination is also a ban on discrimination related to abortion.

In the employment context of Title VII, this language had a minimal effect, given employers are expressly exempt from providing health insurance coverage for abortion. Yet the Equality Act would add a prohibition of discrimination related to abortion in public accommodations, public facilities, public education, and federal-assisted programs.

Further, the Equality Act makes clear that “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition shall not receive less favorable treatment than other physical conditions.” Finally, recall that the Equality Act expressly provides that “the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under,” under the Equality Act, “or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.’’

Together, these three aspects of the act would devastate the cause of life. States, local government agencies, educational institutions, and health-care organizations all receive federal funds, and under The Equality Act’s plain language could be required fund abortions. As a federal statute, the Equality Act would trump state bans on such funding, and as a later adopted statute it could put the Hyde Amendment at risk. Private, and even religious, health-care facilities could be forced to provide abortions on equal terms with other medical care.

Of course, religious organizations could seek refuge in the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, but it was the Supreme Court’s cramped interpretation of that protection that prompted bipartisan passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. The Democratic-controlled Congress, however, with passage of the Equality Act, would gut the protection of religious liberty.

Absent A Massive Outcry, the Equality Act Will Pass

Absent an outcry from average Americans, that is exactly the outcome our country faces.

President Biden campaigned on making passage of the Equality Act a legislative priority in his first 100 days of office. In May 2019 the House of Representatives passed The Equality Act, in a vote of 236 to 173, with the unanimous support of Democrats and eight Republicans crossing the aisle to vote in favor of the Bill. The Republican-led Senate kept the bill from reaching the floor, but the Senate companion legislation garnered 47 sponsors, including Republican Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine.

The bill has again passed the House, and President Biden has promised to sign it into law, leaving the Senate as the last hurdle. With Democrats now controlling the legislative agenda in the Senate, the bill will assuredly see the floor for debate. The question then becomes whether Democrats will retain the 60-vote requirement to end filibusters of legislation, and if so, whether Biden’s party can reach 50 votes with the help of Vice President Vice Kamala Harris.

While things could go either way, given that Democrats have so far succeeded in framing the Equality Act as a civil rights law necessary to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination, passage seems likely—unless average Americans demand defeat of this extremist legislation. For there to be an outcry, however, the public must realize what is at stake. But will they before it is too late?

Bullet Points

  • Election workers in Georgia who came forward with reports of election concerns in the polling offices where they worked have been terminated. These terminations will certainly come under scrutiny during preparations for the U.S. Senate runoff election on January 5. Was it retribution for their election irregularity revelations? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been in continual trouble with Michigan citizens because of her egregious lockdown measures because of COVID-19. The governor used an emergency law in Michigan for permission for her actions. But, on Friday, that law has been repealed. For complete details, click on this link:
  • With a new Congress comes new committee appointments. It seemed certain that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was a sure bet for a seat on one of the most important House committees. But the controversial Democrat was passed-over when appointments were made. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Joe Biden’s transition team is upset over the “abrupt halt” in cooperation with the Pentagon. A story is circulating that because of several federal investigations currently underway of Hunter Biden that Joe Biden is implicated in the investigations. Could this be the reason for the interruptions? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Democrats led by Joe Biden continue to denigrate all of the information that daily continues to flood the nation questioning the veracity of the November 3rd election’s published results. Peter Navarro, an adviser to President Trump, stated that if the evidence proves voter wrongdoing, Americans deserve a different result. For complete details, click on this link:
  • More “stuff” keeps showing up that implicates the FBI for MORE wrongdoing in the Crossfire Hurricane investigation of Donald Trump and his campaign in 2016. In fact, new bombshell revelations show the FBI recorded telephone conversations between George Papadopoulos and FOX News. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Rep. Eric Swalwell’s relationship with a Chinese spy served to confirm that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been, and still is, aggressively infiltrating the American government. And it’s happening NOT just in Congress. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Did you know that President Trump issued an Executive Order a couple of years ago that ordered a specific election report from the Department of National Intelligence that was due Friday? 45 days after each election, the order requires such a report to be given to the President regarding influence in the election by foreign entities. When will the DNI give that report to the President? What countries, if any, will it implicate? For complete details, click on this link:
  • African Americans are far more likely to be infected with COVID-19 than are white Americans. That means African Americans are also more likely to lose the battle against COVID-19. Still, many African Americans are saying they will NOT take the COVID-19 vaccination. Why? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Fueling many Washington citizens’ concerns that the numbers of deaths at the hands of COVID-19 reported by their state are untrue, it was discovered that not only are their numbers reported untrue, they are grossly overstated. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Christmas time always reminds college football fans the College Football Playoffs are just around the corner. But, because of COVID-19, one of the college football teams that seems to be certain has notified the NCAA that they may not play in the championship season if the state of California refuses to let the families of players attend playoff games set to be played in California! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • Campaign contributions and gifts to not-for-profit organizations are commonplace these days. But when one Social Media mogul ponies up with almost $500 million in one campaign, it is obvious it MUST be to impact election results seriously. Zuckerberg did just that!

“Deep Stater Bill Barr Sells Out Trump and America” Part One

Today we introduce to you Kelleigh Nelson. Below is a bit about her. She has agreed to share some of her writings with the TruthNewsNetwork Family. Today is Part One of a two-part story that dives into corruption in just one part of our government. Part Two will come on Sunday. (Don’t forget: our “Saturday Bullet Points” will go live early Saturday) Now, meet Kelleigh Nelson.

Part One

We have a corrupt judiciary, a corrupt Justice Department, and a corrupt FBI, and as Trump said when he was campaigning for the office of President in 2016, “The system is crooked.”  We have an AG whose inaction is the definitive action regarding the outcome of the 2020 election.

Attorney General Bill Barr has stated, “The U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.”  I could list thousands of pieces of evidence, but obviously, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation. Here is the entire response by the Trump Legal Team.

Barr has not stood for truth, for justice, for accountability, and for doing his job as AG; he told us he didn’t want to influence the election, but he’s obviously doing that now.  Barr’s job is to bring justice and prosecute evil-doers, many of whom surround him, not to worry about his influence or the election.

Where are the indictments of the Deep State Criminals?  How long must we wait?

He said he would not prosecute Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and Obama or Biden in the Russia probe. We’ve waited almost two years for the results of Durham’s investigation, and it appears none is forthcoming.  What happened to Anthony Weiner’s laptop and what happened to Hunter Biden’s laptops?  The AG is supposed to treat the American people as his client, but as the top lawman, he’s been a miserable failure.

Bill Barr was recommended to President Trump by Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing.  DiGenova stated in a recent email that he was proud of it.  Now diGenova is on the Trump Legal Team investigating all the fraud and treason committed in the 2020 election, and our AG says there is none.

Barr is an overweight bagpipe playing Deep State impresario and FBI Director Christopher Wray should have been shown the door long ago, but there’s more…

Let’s revisit Barr’s questionable background.

Barr’s Father

William Barr’s father is Donald Barr, who was the headmaster at Dalton School in Manhattan which was founded by progressive educator, Helen Parkhurst who took her cues from developmental psychologist Jean Piaget and education reformers such as John Dewey and Horace Mann.  Jeffrey Epstein became a professor at the Dalton School.  Yes, really!

In 1983 President Reagan nominated Donald Barr to be a member of the National Council on Educational Research.

Donald Barr also had a stint in the precursor to the CIA, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS)during WWII.  Prior to that, he described himself as having a Marxist upbringing in terms of his own memoirs and ruminations on education.  He had a footnote on the dialectic and stated that as a child he enjoyed being a Marxist and reading Marx and Engels.

Barr wrote a book entitled, Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty? wherein he claimed to have three very strange radical leftist mentors in his life who migrated toward establishment mainstream status basically infiltrating old right conservatism just as did William F. Buckley and Irving Kristol.  Gordon Myrick, Ralph Lynton, and Carlton Hayes were the mentors and Diana West is researching all three.

Establishment Ties

Back in 1992, the first time Bill Barr was U.S. attorney general, New York Times writer William Safire referred to him as “Coverup-General Barr” because of his role in burying evidence of then-President George H. W. Bush’s involvement in “Iraq-gate” and “Iran-Contra.”

Barr expressed his support for gun control measures as well as confiscation during the hearings in 1991 for his first time as Attorney General for President George H.W. Bush.  He is widely considered to be the author of  PL 101-647, The Crime Control Act of 1990.

As President Bush’s most notorious CIA insider from 1973 to 1977, and as the AG from 1991 to 1993, Barr wreaked havoc, flaunted the rule of law, and proved himself to be one of the CIA/Deep State’s greatest and most ruthless champions and protectors.

AG Barr owes virtually his entire career to the Bushes, so where does his allegiance truly lie?  Conservapedia gives us some important facts.

Barr donated $55,000 to establishment candidate Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential election, but after Trump became the nominee, Barr donated only $2,700. He was on the board of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN, between 2009 and 2018, and he thus supported its merger with AT&T when conservatives and the Trump Administration opposed it.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, who was forced to resign from the Senate Intelligence Committee for leaking information related to the Mena/Contra operation in 1987, was an enthusiastic Barr supporter. Bush DOJ official Stuart Gerson called Barr and Bob Mueller “folks of the establishment.”

Prior to his appointment as Attorney General, Barr served as Chief Counsel for the CIA airline Southern Air Transport during Iran Contra. Robert Mueller served as Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division during Barr’s tenure.

Barr and Robert Mueller are personal friends and actually worked together during Barr’s first stint under George H. W. Bush from 1991-1993. Mueller headed the FBI Criminal Division at the time of the Ruby Ridge killings and was infuriated that members of Congress and public officials dared complain about the FBI sniper shooting Vicki Weaver in the head while she held her 10-month-old baby.

In August of 1992 when the Ruby Ridge siege occurred, AG Barr was in charge. After he left office, he spearheaded legal efforts to assure total immunity for Lon Horiuchi, the sniper who killed Vicki Weaver, and any federal sniper who behaved similarly.

In late March of 2020, Bill Barr asked Congress to expand legal authorities to circumvent civil liberties because of Covid-19, which easily happened and gave governors dictatorial totalitarian powers over their citizens which we are still experiencing nine months later.


Barr was a full-time CIA operative, recruited by Langley out of high school, starting in 1971. Barr’s youth career goal was to head the CIA. See my previous article, AG William Barr, CIA Asset, and Deep State Impresario.

In the final pages of Compromised, Terry Reed writes that in 1992, several years after working with CIA-connected Robert Johnson, he made the “miraculous find” that “Robert Johnson” was also William P. Barr. Reed’s CIA contact, William Barr, known at that time by his alias Robert Johnson, told Reed that Attorney General Edwin Meese had appointed Michael Fitzhugh to be US Attorney in Western Arkansas and that he would stonewall any investigation into the Mena, Arkansas drug-related activities. This obstruction of justice by Justice Department officials did occur.

Don’t forget Edwin Meese’s involvement in the Inslaw/Promis software theft by the federal government.

When George H.W. Bush became CIA Director in 1976, Barr joined the CIA’s “legal office” and Bush’s inner circle, and worked alongside Bush’s longtime CIA enforcers Theodore “Ted” Shackley, Felix Rodriguez, Thomas Clines, and others, several of whom were likely involved with the Bay of Pigs/John F. Kennedy assassination, and numerous Southeast Asian operations, from the Phoenix Program to Golden Triangle narco-trafficking.

The Church Committee was a U.S. Senate select committee in 1975 that investigated abuses by the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Internal Revenue Service. Barr stonewalled and destroyed the Committee investigations into CIA abuses.

A memo uncovered in the Central Intelligence Agency’s declassified archives shows that during his time at the CIA’s Office of Legislative Council, current AG Barr drafted letters calling for the end of the moratorium on destroying records imposed on the Agency ahead of the Church Committee hearings.  We need to keep the docs showing the evil of the CIA, but Barr wants them destroyed.

And President George H. W. Bush was all for the destruction since he had headed the CIA and was likely culpable for many of the CIA’s actions.
