UPS eyes U.S. project with Merck & Co for in-home vaccinations | 22 March 2019 | United Parcel Service Inc wants to get beyond U.S. doorsteps with a new push into healthcare. The world's largest package delivery firm is preparing to test a U.S. service that dispatches nurses to vaccinate adults in their homes, Reuters has learned...UPS did not disclose which vaccines it would be using in the project, but drug and vaccine maker Merck & Co told Reuters it is looking at partnering with the company for the initiative...Workers in UPS's 1.7 million-square-foot healthcare complex at Worldport will package and ship the vaccine to one of the more 4,700 franchised U.S. UPS stores. A home health nurse contracted by UPS's clinical trial logistics unit known as Marken will collect the insulated package, transport it the "last mile" to the patient's home and administer the vaccine, which will target a viral illness in adults. [Does anybody see where this could go? The US govt issues a mandatory vaccine edict after a real or pharma lab-generated pandemic. The 'vaccinators' will then come to your house, to enforce the government's vaccination decrees. This is when the 2nd Amendment would come in handy... ]

Fox News has learned the texts, initially released in 2018 by a Senate committee, are under renewed scrutiny, with GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Homeland Security Committee chair Ron Johnson sending a letter Thursday night to Attorney General Bill Barr pushing for more information on the matter. "Any improper FBI surveillance activities that were conducted before or after the 2016 election must be brought to light and properly addressed," the senators wrote.

Rep. Biggs on Strzok-Page texts: 'In any other country we would call it a coup'

Rep. Biggs on Strzok-Page texts: 'In any other country we would call it a coup' | 26 April 2019 | Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said Friday that texts between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page suggesting that they use a post-election briefing to gather information on the Trump team was evidence of a "coup." "Well, every time we get more information out about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page it goes to what they originally wanted to do -- prevent Donald Trump from becoming president, and the use and abuse of power to try and infiltrate, if you will, of the transition team of President Trump and then use it to do what? Which we anticipated from other text messages, to try and delegitimize the president," Biggs said on "Outnumbered Overtime." "In any other country, we would call it a coup when you abuse the power of the police state to basically disenfranchise or just eliminate, if you will, the acting president. That's what was being done here."

US economy grows by 3.2% in the first quarter, topping expectations

US economy grows by 3.2% in the first quarter, topping expectations | 26 April 2019 | The U.S. economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the first quarter and posted its best growth to start a year in four years. First-quarter gross domestic product expanded by 3.2%, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said Friday in its initial read of the economy for that period. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected growth of 2.5%. It was the first time since 2015 that first-quarter GDP topped 3%. "The upside beat was helped by net trade (exports jumped while imports contracted sharply) and inventories which combined contributed almost 170 bps of the rise," wrote Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group.

Federal panel orders Michigan to redraw congressional, legislative maps for 2020

Federal panel orders Michigan to redraw congressional, legislative maps for 2020 | 25 April 2019 | Michigan would get new state legislative and congressional maps for the 2020 election -- and even special state Senate elections -- under a sweeping federal court judgment Thursday to end a gerrymandering lawsuit. A three-judge federal panel ordered the state Legislature to redraw at least 34 districts for the 2020 election in a lawsuit brought by the Michigan League of Women Voters. Though the ruling only explicitly affects those 34 districts, the effects of the ruling are sure to be broader since redrawing any district can also impact neighboring districts. And in what may be an unprecedented aspect of the decision, it requires special state Senate elections to be held in 2020, instead of 2022 as scheduled.

Twitter interfering in UK elections as the platform bans Tommy Robinson and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin's campaign accounts

Twitter interfering in UK elections as the platform bans Tommy Robinson and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin's campaign accounts --Both had already had their personal accounts banned from the platform - but now their campaign accounts are also suspended | 26 April 2019 | Twitter has banned the Euro election campaign accounts of Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin and far-right extremist Tommy Robinson. Benjamin, a vlogger who calls himself "Sargon of Akkad", had already been banned from Twitter in 2017 for violating the platform's rules on targeted abuse. And Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was permanently banned in March 2018 for violating its rules on "hateful conduct". [Shutting down private accounts is one thing; banning campaign accounts is a different ball of wax. It's only a matter of time before Deep State septic tank Twitter completely inserts itself in the 2020 US elections, just as Google did by manipulating search algorithms to rig the 2018 midterms. We are tired of the shadow-banning and dismantling of accounts just because Jack Dorsey and his merry band of SJW censors don't agree with the viewpoint of the account owner. It's time, long past time, to regulate these Big Tech totalitarians. --LRP]

The agenda suggested the purpose was training and coordination. But Ukrainian participants said it didn't take long -- during the meetings and afterward -- to realize the Americans' objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched Vice President Joe Biden's family and one that involved a lobbying firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump.
