PENTAGON CARES FUNDS USED FOR DEFENSE

Pentagon used taxpayer money meant for masks and swabs to make jet engine parts and body armor

Shortly after Congress passed the Cares Act, the Pentagon began directing pandemic-related money to defense contractors.

A $1 billion fund Congress gave the Pentagon in March to build up the country’s supplies of medical equipment has instead been mostly funneled to defense contractors and used to make things such as jet engine parts, body armor and dress uniforms.

The change illustrates how one taxpayer-backed effort to battle the novel coronavirus, which has killed about 200,000 Americans, was instead diverted toward patching up long-standing perceived gaps in military supplies.

The Cares Act, which Congress passed earlier this year, gave the Pentagon money to “prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.” But a few weeks later, the Defense Department began reshaping how it would award the money in a way that represented a major departure from Congress’s intent.



IS CHINA MONEY FUNDING DEMS

IS CHINA MONEY FUNDING DEMS

Herschel Walker claims China is helping fund BLM which then donates to Democrats

Former NFL Player Herschel Walker on Monday claimed that money from China is supposedly funding the Black Lives Matter organization and that money is then donated to the Democratic Party.

The claims from Walker came in a video he posted on Twitter, writing in the caption that the 2020 presidential election was the most important in history,

Not just for the President of the United States “but for all branches of Gov’t.”

“I just saw the Democratic Party raise a lot of money and a lot of it came from ActBlue,” Walker says in the video,

Referring to the online fundraising payment professor that facilitates donations to Democratic and left-leaning organizations.

Walker then notes that Black Lives Matter – which was founded by people “trained from Marxists – “gave a lot of money to ActBlue.”

“I reckon you can support whatever party you want to support. If the Democratic Party wants to be associated with Marxists, that’s fine,” Walker says.

“But then I also saw that BLM had a subsidiary company that was partnered with a company from China that was giving them money.

So, the money goes from China, to the subsidiary, to BLM, to the Democratic Party,”

Walker says, adding: “Why does it seem like I’m the only that’s coming up with this? Just think about it.”

ActBlue is an online payment processor used by many groups affiliated with the Democratic Party.

WinRed, launched last year, is an equivalent processing company for the Republican Party.

It wasn’t immediately clear what BLM “subsidiary” Walker was referring to.

But his comments come less than a week after an article from The Daily Signal,

The blog of the Heritage Foundation, titled: “The BLM Co-Founder and Pro-Communist China Group Are Partnering Up. Here’s Why.”

The piece purported to show a link between an organization started by BLM co-founder Alicia Garza,

And a non-profit with ties to Beijing.

A day later, The New York Times reported that the article conflated two nonprofits with the same name and made incorrect claims about BLM’s ties to the Chinese government.

ANOTHER POTENTIAL DARWIN AWARD WINNER

A woman fell out of a car and onto a busy highway while hanging out of the passenger window to film a Snapchat video, police in the UK have said.

The unnamed woman was dangling out of the vehicle on the M25 motorway south of London, Surrey Police wrote on Twitter.

“It is only by luck she wasn’t seriously injured or killed,” they said.

They posted a picture of the open passenger window, alongside the hashtag #nowords.

Asked by a user if officers explained the dangers of the attempt to the woman, the police replied:

“Every chance they worked it out before we spoke to them about it!”

Some 259 people worldwide died while taking selfies between 2011 and 2017,

According to a study published in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care.

Researchers found that the most selfie deaths occurred in India, followed by Russia, the US and Pakistan.

Most of the victims were men (about 72%) and under the age of 30.

Last year, four members of the same family drowned at a dam in India after slipping into the water while trying to take a selfie.
