FBI Finds ‘Scant Evidence’ That January 6 Riot Was ‘Result Of Organized Plot To Overturn’ Election: Reuters – The FBI has reportedly found little evidence that the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, was part of an organized plot to overturn the results of the election.

Reuters reported Friday morning that multiple law enforcement officials have told them that despite hundreds of arrests made by the FBI, “the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.” – READ MORE

US Investigates Moderna Jab After Data Show 2.5x Higher Risk Of Heart Inflammation – The Internet’s social-media censors have been extremely vigilant at suppressing every tidbit of COVID vaccine “misinformation” that comes their way. So, as readers might imagine, drawing attention to publicly released data about the rare (but sometimes deadly) side effects associated with both mRNA and adenovirus-vector jabs has been…a challenge.

But let’s back up: over the past couple of months, health authorities in the US and Israel connected rare instances of myocarditis – that is, inflammation of the heart – to the mRNA jabs produced by Pfizer and Moderna. After a hurried secret meeting with its advisors in late June, the FDA reluctantly released a warning about a “likely association” between incidences of myocarditis and the new side effects. – READ MORE

North Texas Hospital Will Soon Use Vaccination Status to Decide If You’re Worth an ICU Bed – This would be an addition to the rules of triage — who gets medical resources when medical resources are scant.

Report: Illinois Regulators Threaten Doctor Critical of Gov’s School Mask Mandates – A medical doctor who serves on his local school board is facing an investigation from Illinois regulators over his criticisms of the state’s mask mandate in schools, according to a report.

Sports physician Jeremy Henrichs, who is the vice president of the Mahomet-Seymour school board in central Illinois, accused Illinois’s Department of Financial and Professional Regulation of threatening “my medical licensure unless I expressly support and enforce a mask mandate for all students.” The school district plans to follow Governor J.B. Pritzker’s (D.) mandate, but state regulators nevertheless demanded that Henrichs supply “a detailed statement on your opinion about masks, and whether you support and will enforce a mask mandate based on your elected position as a school board member.” – READ MORE

Biden Admin Has No Plan to Keep Cash Out of Taliban’s Hands, GOP Lawmakers Say – As the Biden administration scrambles to evacuate American personnel from Afghanistan, it is overlooking the Taliban’s plans to seize some $10 billion in assets held by Afghanistan’s central bank, according to congressional foreign policy leaders.

Somewhere between $18 and $20 million in cash sits in the Afghan central bank’s vaults and is likely to fall into the Taliban’s hands unless the United States attempts to intercept the funds and fly them out of the country—a scenario that sources say is unlikely as the Biden administration struggles to pull Americans out of Taliban-controlled Kabul. – READ MORE
