The odds of Jeffrey Epstein killing himself in August 2019 are about as equal to the odds of Joe Biden being elected to live in the White House in November 2020.
The guards assigned to watch Epstein in his cell at Manhatten Correctional Center, for some reason, did not perform their routine 30-minute checks of the most famous prisoner on earth at the time. They blamed it on allegedly sleeping on the job.
Later we found out that records were falsified and it just so happened the cameras on Epstein’s cell also malfunctioned on that particular night of all nights.
When paramedics were finally called, news reports agreed they “frantically tried to revive Epstein, 66, after he was found hanged in his own cell.”
Jeffrey Epstein’s brother, Mark, hired famed pathologist Michael Baden to observe the autopsy. He insisted that “the evidence points toward homicide.”
By February 2022, other improbable deaths, all related to either Epstein or former President Bill Clinton or both, started occurring.
🔹Millionaire model agency boss Jean-Luc Brunel, who knew the names of all the VIP elites who were part of Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile ring, was found dead in prison. Brunel supplied children as young as eight to Epstein who then trafficked them to elite pedophiles to rape. According to a former bookkeeper, several girls presented to Epstein worked for MC2, the modelling agency owned by Jean Luc Brunel. He was arrested and charged with raping multiple children in December 2020.
Just like Epstein, his death was alleged hanging…and the video cameras were not running on his cell in La Sante, just south of France. Again just like Epstein, it was in the early hours of a Saturday morning.
🔹In August 2022, New York-based businessman Steven Hoffenberg, who described himself as Jeffrey Epstein’s “best friend” and “wingman”, was found dead at his Connecticut apartment.
Police in Derby said officers responded to the 77-year-old’s apartment at 8 p.m. for a requested welfare check. Officers found the body “in a state where a visual identification could not be made.”
Hoffenberg was the founder of New York debt collection agency Towers Financial Corporation which he set up with Jeffrey Epstein. By 1993 it was revealed they were running one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in U.S. history, bilking investors out of nearly half a billion dollars. “He was my best friend for years. My closest friend for years … He was my guy, my wingman,” Hoffenberg told CBS News in an interview in 2019.
🔹In May, 7, 2022, Mark Middleton, Bill Clinton’s special advisor from Little Rock, Arkansas was also found hanging from a tree with a shotgun blast through his chest and a cheap extension cord around his neck. He was just 59.
Middleton was the advisor responsible for inviting Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell to the White House at least 17 times. Middleton also flew on Epstein’s notorious private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express”, and is widely credited with introducing the former president to the convicted pedophile.
“Everyone that I know here, that has worked with Mark, knows it is physically impossible for Mark to have killed himself,” Middleton’s business associate said.
Is it a coincidence that a cheap extension cord had been used on another Clinton associate just a few months before?
🔹Ashley Haynes, 47, was found drowned in the Arkansas River with an extension cord knotted to her ankle and attached to a 58 lb. concrete block. She had been seen just months before visiting Clinton adviser Mark Middleton (mentioned above).
Haynes, a mother of two from the Little Rock suburb of Maumelle, vanished on Jan. 12 after leaving a note on her kitchen island counter stating “on the water, love you all.” She was last seen by a local resident paddle boarding in a wetsuit, according to a police report.
“Mrs. Haynes had a bag strapped to her leg with a green extension cord,” states the police report. “Inside the bag was a large concrete block that measured 16x16x4.”
“It didn’t make any sense, she would never kill herself,” the Haynes source said. “When I heard she went missing I knew instantly it was foul play. I don’t believe she killed herself. How could she water paddle down the river with a concrete block!”
🔹On June 22, 2022 Clinton mega-donor and close associate, 55 year old Steve Bing was found dead after plunging from the 27th floor of his luxury apartment building in Los Angeles’ Century City at around 1 p.m.
To be fair, I don’t think there was a proveable connection of his death to Epstein or Clinton because he had been depressed for awhile—at least since the death of his girlfriend, Alexanne Mitchum, the great granddaughter of actor Robert Mitchum.
She took Xanax and slipped into unconsciousness. She died accidentally on July 3, 2020 from acute Fentanyl and Alprazolam toxicity, according to the L.A. County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office.
At the age of 18, Bing inherited an estimated $600 million from his grandfather, Leo S. Bing, a real estate developer, which led him to drop out of Stanford University and use the money to invest in Hollywood.
In 2009, Bing paid for the flight that carried Clinton and American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee home from North Korea.
Clinton and Bing were part of a hard-partying group that included Ron Burkle and Jeffrey Epstein, according to LA Mag.
Bing has a son with actress Elizabeth Hurley. Legendary Rock-n-Roller Jerry Lee Lewis considered Bing his adopted son.
Keen observers of these deaths point to one single court case regarding Epstein that was settled in May 2017. It was on the eve of the trial set up by Virginia Giuffre, a woman who claimed to have been Jeffrey Epstein’s teenage “sex slave.” She sued Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend and ringleader, for defamation.
The key to this was that other court documents had been published indicating Giuffre made allegations of sexual abuse against “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well‐known Prime Minister, and other world leaders.”
Many refer to the deaths associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton as “THE CLINTON DEATH POOL.” Others call it “CLINTON DEATH COUNT.” Some say it is “THE CLINTON BODY BAGS.”
The first time I recall it being mentioned was after the violent death of a former White House counselor, and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock’s Rose Law firm. Vince Foster died of a gunshot wound to the head, ruled a suicide.
I remember the news breaking into a television broadcast announcing Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman, Ron Brown and others died by impact in a plane crash. Later, a pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of Brown’s skull resembling a gunshot wound.
At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. The rest of the people on the plane also died. A few days later the Air Traffic controller commited suicide.
Years later, Sally Miller, an ex-lover of then Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, told me about her escapades and concerns of being killed by “Hillary’s Henchmen”
Over time, one by one, America learned of the deaths of Major William S. Barkley, Jr., Captain Scott J . Reynolds, Sgt. Brian Hanley, Sgt. Tim Sabel, Major General William Robertson, Col. William Densberger, Col. Robert Kelly, Spec. Gary Rhodes, Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Conway LeBleu and Todd McKeehan. They were law enforcement officers assigned to protect the Clintons over the years.
Who remembers hearing aboutKathy Ferguson? She was the ex-wife of Arkansas Trooper Danny Ferguson who was found dead in May 1994, in her living room with a gunshot to her head. It was ruled a suicide even though there were several packed suitcases, as if she were going somewhere.
Danny Ferguson was a co-defendant along with Bill Clinton in the Paula Jones lawsuit. Kathy Ferguson was a possible corroborating witness for Paula Jones.
Ferguson’s fiance was another Arkansas State Trooper, Bill Shelton. He was very critical of the suicide ruling of his fiancee. He was found dead in June, 1994 of a gunshot wound also ruled a suicide at the gravesite of his fiancee.
Suzanne Coleman reportedly had an affair with Bill Clinton when he was Arkansas Attorney General. She died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head. It was ruled a suicide. She was pregnant at the time of her death.
More people began to notice a pattern with Clinton associates and connected people after a former White House intern was murdered July 1997 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown.
While Monica Lewinsky was Bill Clinton’s most famous intern, Mary Caitrin Mahoney must not be forgotten.
She was shot five times by a gunman, but no money was taken from the Starbucks where she worked part-time.
The murder occurred just after it became known she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment by Clinton in the White House.
Eric Holder, who had just been sworn in as Deputy Attorney General, told The Washington Times that he was “concerned about the number of leaks and the amount of detail that has gotten out there.”
In fairness, I must report that a man, Carl D. Cooper was arrested years later and charged with the murders of Mahoney and two other Starbucks employees that night.
Then there was Clinton fundraiser Ed Willey. He was found dead November 1993 deep in the woods in VA of a gunshot wound to the head. Ruled a suicide, Willey died on the same day his wife Kathleen Willey claimed Bill Clinton groped her in the oval office in the White House. Ed Willey was involved in several Clinton fund raising events.
Jerry Parks was head of Clinton’s gubernatorial security team in Little Rock. He was gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock. Park’s son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton. He allegedly threatened to reveal this information. After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house.
James Bunch died from a gunshot suicide. It was reported that he had a “Black Book” of people which contained names of influential people who visited prostitutes in Texas and Arkansas.
Gandy Baugh was an attorney for Clinton’s friend Dan Lassater. He died by jumping out a window of a tall building January, 1994. Clinton’s friend was a convicted drug distributor.
Recent sightings of black bears in the western parts of the Texas Hill Country could indicate the dry hot conditions in the Lone Star State are causing wildlife to venture into wider migration patterns.
From April through June, rare bear sightings have occurred near Carta Valley, Barksdale, Camp Wood, west of Ingram, south of Tarpley, Asherton, Alpine, Fort Davis and Mount Livermore.
On June 20th, a black bear was sighted swimming near the shoreline of Lake Amistad.
In the past year, bears have also been observed not only on the lake, but near Fort Stockton, north of Laredo, and in nearby regions.
While no one is sure how many bears currently live in Texas, experts agree that wildfires in Mexico, as well as drought conditions in other regions, have likely caused bears to migrate to new areas, including many parts of Texas.
Michael Janis, Trans-Pecos district leader for Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD), said dry conditions are likely sending bears looking for food. Breeding season also moved bears around.
The conservation efforts in bordering states over the last 20 years have also led to bears crossing back into Texas, especially during the summer mating season, according to TPWD.
Most of these animals wandering further into Texas are young, transient males in search of food and other bears. Males have much larger home ranges than females, and sub-adults can travel many miles to set up a new one.
To those not aware of bears, some people become quite alarmed when they hear about sightings. However, out of approximately 36,000 people in the U.S. who are bitten annually by wildlife, black bears rank 5th behind rodents, venomous snakes, skunks, and foxes respectively.
In West Texas where Big Bend National Park (BBNP) has had more than 6,592 bear/human encounters since 1950, only 2.5 percent of those encounters were classified as aggressive interactions. Most of those occurred when the bear made contact with property containing human food. There has never been a black bear attack recorded in BBNP.
When Border Patrol agents discovered a young black bear in a tree in north Laredo last July, it likely came from Mexico, noted Eric Garza, wildlife biologist with TPWD.
Not long after, residents of SpinTech – Myers Ranch caught a strange image on a game camera. Maybe it was an overgrown wild hog, but most believe it was a bear:
TPWD is recording more road kills of black bears between Laredo and Zapata over the decade. Garza notes they were likely males dispersing from Mexico also.
“Zapata itself probably hasn’t seen any historic sightings simply because of the lake. It’s hard for them to swim across the lake, especially when it’s up,” said Garza. “This particular animal probably came across where the water is a lot lower. Not where it’s a lake but where it’s still a river.”
In a 2011 Starr County encounter, Garza notes the bear became habituated to residents, picking up scraps of food and eating out of trash cans. In those instances the bears need to be trapped and relocated away from humans, pet food and trash.
“The first thing we need to know is any conflicts between black bears and people can be avoided very, very easily,” Garza explained. “And the easiest way to avoid any conflicts is to make sure and not leave trash out for bears to get into, and really any wildlife to get into. Don’t leave pet food out. Bring that in and secure it. Don’t leave small livestock animals like rabbits or poultry.”
Late 2021 and early 2022, TPWD biologists were monitoring multiple black bear sightings near the North Double Diamond community south of Alpine.
It is believed the bear may displaying behavior typical of hyperphagia (excessive or extreme hunger). Reports suggested that the bear were attracted to and searching for easily accessible food sources (i.e. pet food, wildlife feeders, livestock feed, etc.).
In June, 2021, Big Bend National Park camper Valerie King took photos of a black bear in the Basin Campground:
TPWD indicates anyone encountering a black bear in a camping area should immediately deploy aversive conditioning by creating loud noises (shout, handclap, air horns, car alarm, sirens, or bang pots and pans) to startle the bear. Once the bear leaves, report the encounter to your District Biologist or TPWD Game Warden.
It is critical that the Department is able to monitor any on-going situations with full extent of known black bear encounters.
In the 1800s, black bear lived through every ecosystem in Texas but has long been hunted down and migrated away from settlements and eventually, cities. In 2009, a black bear that wandered onto a Mernard County (Central Texas) cattle ranch was the first ever confirmed in this century in that part of the state, according to Capt. Alan Teague, a TPWD game warden.
A Liberty County judge reputedly slaughtered 200 bears in the late 19th century, a pursuit that earned Lewis Hightower the handle “the Bear-Hunting Judge,” according to the Handbook of Texas Online.
“I practice law for recreation,” Hightower would say, “and hunt bear for a livin’.”
By the 1950s, black bears were eradicated from Texas, experts say.
The state made bear hunting illegal in 1983. That decade, they began crossing from northern Mexico into the southern reaches of West Texas.
For the past 20 years, a small population has bred there, mostly in the region’s rugged mountains. Today, some biologists believe there may be as many as 100.
But bears in Texas recently have been on the move, staging an unprecedented return to regions such as the Edwards Plateau, Piney Woods and South Texas Plains, according to Nathan Garner, another TPWD biologist.
Texas lists the black bear as threatened. The penalty for shooting one is a Class C misdemeanor and a fine of $500, plus a civil restitution of $11,907.50.
One of the most bizzare encounters was in 2017, when a black bear was sighted in a neighborhood between New Braunfels and Spring Branch. The alleged black bear, weighing as much as 350 lbs., ran in front of a vehicle in the early morning hours.
According to TPWD, there were 61 Black Bear sightings in 14 counties in 2018-2019. State mammologist Jonah Evans said sightings tend to increase in the fall because the bears are foraging food and trying “fatten up” before hibernating for the winter.
Transient bears from New Mexico are also occasionally reported in the Panhandle counties of Dallam, Hartley and Oldham, according to TPWD district leader Brad Simpson.
A study published in The Journal of Wildlife Management documents 63 people killed in 59 incidents by non-captive black bears between 1900-2009.
Of special note is this quote:
“We judged that the bear involved acted as a predator in 88 percent of fatal incidents. Adult or subadult male bears were involved in 92 percent of fatal predatory incidents, reflecting biological and behavioral differences between male and female bears. That most fatal black bear attacks were predatory and were carried out by one bear shows that females with young are not the most dangerous black bears.”
🔹Black bears mate during the months of June and July. This might account for some of the sightings in the Texas Hill Country, as bears travel to find a mate during the summer months.
🔹State biologists believe that female black bears in Texas hibernate while males do not.
🔹The young are born in January or February, while the mother is “hibernating.” She normally gives birth to two-to-three cubs every two years.
🔹Louisiana Black Bear sightings have been increasing in recent years so it’s possible they are making a comeback in Eastern Texas too.
🔹Louisiana is home to the Louisiana Black Bear, a subspecies of of the American Black Bear. There’s an estimated 750-1000 bears living in the state, but they can also be found in the neighboring states of Texas, Mississippi, and possibly even Southern Arkansas.
🔹Aside from the Louisiana Bear, both the Mexican Black Bear and the New Mexico Black Bear are found in western Texas in low numbers and are also on the state endangered species list.
NEW MEXICO MIGRATION
🔹The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish estimates that there are approximately 5,000-6,000 Black Bears living in all 14.6 million forested acres of New Mexico. There have been strict hunting regulations in place since 1927 in the state to help control the population of Black Bears in the state.
🔹In the early 20th century Grizzly Bears were common in the state, but now only the American Black Bear remain. They are also the state animal of New Mexico.
🔹Black Bears in Arkansas thrive in three places; the Ozark Highlands area, the Ouachita National Forest, and the lower White River basin. Pre-settlement there was thought to be over 50,000 bears in Arkansas, but dwindled down to just 50 bears in the 1930s. Thanks to conservation efforts and the importation of Black Bears from other areas, Arkansas is believed to have over 5,000 Black Bears now.
CAN INJURE WHEN PROVOKED
“The Black Bear is a stocky, large animal, one of the largest mammals in North America. Adults reach a length of 5 to 6 feet, height at the shoulder of 2 to 3 feet, and weigh 200-300 pounds,” notes information from Texas Park and Wildlife Department. “Although called a ‘black’ bear, colors can range from black to the occasional cinnamon brown. Front claws are generally longer than hind claws. The fur is long and coarse. Although appealing and generally harmless, Black Bears can injure humans when provoked and should be treated with caution.”
At least two subspecies of Black Bear are thought to occur in Texas: the Mexican Black Bear and the New Mexico Black Bear. Both are found in West Texas in desert scrub or woodland habitats within scattered mountain ranges, predominantly the Chisos and Guadalupe Mountains. Both subspecies are state-listed as endangered in Texas.
Colleen Olfenbuttel, the Wildlife Commission’s black bear and furbearer biologist, offers some advice about how to co-exist with black bears.
“Most bears that wander into a residential area will quickly retreat to their natural habitat, particularly if no food source is around,” Olfenbuttel said. “Bears have adapted to living near people; now it’s up to us to adapt to living near bears.”
BearWise has six Basics the public can use to prevent potential conflicts and live responsibly with bears:
• Never feed or approach a bear. Bears will defend themselves if a person gets too close, so don’t risk your safety and theirs.
• Secure food, garbage and recycling. Place trash outside as late as possible on the morning of trash pick-up — not the night before.
• Remove bird feeders when bears are active. Birdseed, other grains and hummingbird feeders have high calorie content making them very attractive to bears.
• Never leave pet food outdoors.
• Clean and store grills.
• Alert neighbors to bear activity.
“While these young bears (usually May-August), typically males, may appear to be wandering aimlessly around, they are not necessarily lost,” Olfenbuttel said. “Most are simply exploring their new surroundings and will move on, particularly if they are left alone and there is no food around.”
Unlike brown bears, black bears are omnivorous creatures that rarely pose a threat to humans, pets, or livestock. Like any large mammal, however, humans must take steps to be aware and coexist with black bears.
Black bears diet is very much like a raccoon’s.
🔹Up to 80 percent of their diet is plant matter, and they often scavenge the rest from carcasses of dead animals.
🔹In many circumstances, they will hunt for insects and worms for the “meat based” part of their diet.
🔹They have been known to kill larger mammals and even livestock. This is occurs mostly during late spring and early summer, when bears become active after hibernating, and juveniles “leave home.” This is when food requirements are high, and bears will find the most nutritious food they can.
🔹If there is a lack of fruits, berries, and other plant matter, they may feed on other animals.
Signs of black bears
If you suspect bears in your area, pay careful attention to signs such as, tracks, scat, and territorial markings on trees. Although you may not see the animal, the evidence of their presence is usually clear. Take pictures of suspected bear sign using a ruler or other standard item for scale and send them to your local biologist for interpretation.
Bear tracks stand out and are unlike any other you might encounter. Bears use their teeth and claws to mark trees or other surfaces to mark territory.
If you encounter a bear, TPWD offers this advice:
If a bear regularly visits your deer stand, scare it with rocks, a slingshot or air horn.
If you encounter a bear at close range, talk in a calm manner while backing away slowly. Do not make direct eye contact
Do not run. Running can trigger a bear’s chase instinct.
Stand your ground and raise your arms if a bear approaches you, making yourself appear larger. Yell at the bear to scare it off.
Fight back aggressively with anything available if attacked. Let bears know that you are not an easy prey. Do not play dead.
Prior to the 2016 Presidential Election between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton’s ex-lover, Sally Miller sent me a very exposing email on January 5, 2016. –by Jack Dennis, CLEVERJOURNEYS
Sally Miller had previously told me about how Clinton “henchmen,” or operatives had threatened her on numerous occasions if she revealed information that could place Hillary in a bad light as the election campaign proceeded.
Miller believed that Clinton associate (and former chief of staff) Betsey Wright was in charge of Hillary’s “bimbo patrol, ” — goons who tracked down women who had affairs with, or men who knew too much about Bill, to shut them up.
It is well documentedthat Miller, the 1958 Miss Arkansas, and then Governor William Jefferson Clinton were frequent lovers. State troopers have since come forward collaborating with others about the arranged liaisons at nearby Little Rock hotels. In Miller’s instances, it was usually in her home.
One of Miller’s most notorious reveals was when Clinton laid next to her, “grinning real big,” during one of their trysts and blurted,”Damn, you need to come over and teach Hillary a thing or two about sex.”
“She’s not that wild about sex?” Miller laughed.
“Nah, the only time she is at all interested is when she snorts something up her nose,” he replied. “But don’t worry about Hillary. She’s busy. Hell, she has eaten a lot more p**sy than I have.”
While writing for Examiner in 2016, Miller and I corresponded often by phone or email. I found her to be quite open, but cautious, until she felt she could trust me.
“Hillary does plenty of drugs to get herself in the mood for sex,” Miller told me. “That’s the only time that she would entertain the idea – again, this is what Bill said to me.”
“Our love affair lasted five months, from August through December of 1983,” Miller revealed. “I suppose I’m classified as one of the ‘bimbos’ Hillary classifies us as, but the fact remains he came to my home at least a dozen times during that period.”
JANUARY 5, 2016E-MAIL
“I don’t know if Hillary is a lesbian. Frankly, I don’t care who Hillary sleeps with or what type sex satisfies her. I only know—for certain—I never slept with Hillary.
“I’m thinking about writing a letter to Hillary. I want to thank her for the Power she exercised in getting me fired more than a few times; the Power she used in reducing my lifestyle to food stamps; and her relentless Power when ordering guns fired in my direction.
“Hillary’s Power proved so persuasive, she convinced my family to abandon me. And, Hillary deserves a standing ovation for demanding private investigators keep digging until they found me in China.
“It wasn’t enough to destroy me in my own country; as First Lady, Hillary used her Power to travel across the ocean and personally “put me on notice.” Hillary’s Power tested my survival skills far beyond what I ever experienced on my long journey of China’s Great Wall.
“Because of Hillary’s Power, I will never take my safety and well-being for granted; her Power added a new dimension to my fear. Yes, Hillary has a power that can only be found among the most politically-connected and the most vengeful of women. Hillary’s Power allows her to get what she wants. Yes, Hillary’s Power remains unforgettable to me.
“Looking back, maybe I should have slept with Hillary. But, watching her Politically- Inspired “song and dance routine” on television; studying her mouth when she screams, threatens, lies and denies….I’m sure Hillary can’t kiss as well as Bill.
Sally Miller, Miss Arkansas 1958 (one of Hillary’s Bimbos)”
Miller did indeed pen an open letter to Hillary Clinton which I posted on Examiner. She labeled her “completely evil, heartless, and totally selfish.”
“Like the rest of us, you’ve grown older, experienced health problems and today— your lies are less convincing; your promises less believable and—sadly for your tough-woman-persona— your aging appearance exposes your vulnerability…Quite honestly, Hillary, you are just a pathetically fragile and tired-looking old woman.”
Miller later wrote in her book “The Beauty Queen: Let no good deed go unpublished,” more elaboration on her affair with Clinton and his numerous vices, including the regular smoking of marijuana and snorting of cocaine.
In 2005, Miller received a $90,000 settlement from the West Chester Friends School following termination from her position as the school’s director of fund-raising and public relations after revelations surfaced that she was one of the women involved in Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs.
The Wit, Wisdom and Mistakes of the Legendary American Performer
In 1964, when his recording of “The Ballad of Ira Hayes” (about the tragic end suffered by a Native American hero of World War II) received an initially lukewarm reception at radio, Cash took out a full-page ad in Billboard demanding of programmers, “Where are your guts?”
On January 13, 1968, Cash recorded his masterly live album At Folsom Prison, from which came a new #1 hit version of “Folsom Prison Blues.” This album and the follow-up 1969 live recording At San Quentin pushed his career to new heights. Taken from the San Quentin album, “A Boy Named Sue” (#1 country, #2 pop) became his biggest-selling single and the Country Music Association Single of the Year (1969). Cash was also voted the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year for 1969.
From 1969 through 1971, Cash hosted a prime time network television variety show that showcased his status as a national icon while featuring an eclectic mix of guest performers. A live cut from this show, “Sunday Morning Coming Down” (written by Kris Kristofferson), was a #1 country hit. Increasingly, Cash recorded and featured on his television show the work of new songwriters drawn to country from folk and rock music backgrounds.
Cash died in 2003. Two years later his life became the subject of a biographical film, Walk the Line, starring Joaquin Phoenix as Cash and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter. Phoenix and Witherspoon both won Academy Awards for their performances. American V: A Hundred Highways (2006) and American VI: Ain’t No Grave (2010), further strengthened Cash’s reputation as a cultural hero.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a major recall of various products sold at Family Dollar Stores in six states: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi and Tennessee.
The recall includes, but is not limited to:
FDA-approved dietary supplements
Cosmetics, including skincare products, baby oils, lipsticks, shampoos and baby wipes
Animal foods, including kibble, pet treats and wild bird seed
Medical devices, including feminine hygiene products, surgical masks, contact lens cleaning solutions, bandages and nasal care products
Over-the-counter medications, including pain medications, eye drops, dental products, antacids and other medications for both adults and children
The FDA said they began an investigation into their West Memphis, Arkansas, distribution facility after receiving a consumer complaint in January.
Inspectors found live rodents, dead rodents, “rodent feces and urine, evidence of gnawing, nesting and rodent odors throughout the facility, dead birds and bird droppings, and products stored in conditions that did not protect against contamination,” the FDA announced this week. After fumigating the facility, more than 1,100 dead rodents were discovered.
Between March and September of last year, the company’s internal records showed it found more than 2,300 rodents in the facility, the FDA said.
Any and all pet food — whether it’s a can of Alpo or a bag of the “good stuff” — has been recalled from 404 Family Dollar stores in the South because a distribution center in Arkansas had an apparent rodent infestation.
“There are numerous hazards associated with rodents, including the potential presence of salmonella,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) noted in its recall announcement.
Recreational marijuana is legal in 18 states and Washington, D.C., and medical marijuana is legal in 36 states and D.C.
Some other states where voters could see marijuana on the ballot in 2022 include:
Arkansas: Voters could decide two marijuana initiatives. One would decriminalize marijuana, give limited immunity to cannabis businesses, and create regulations for the cannabis industry.
The other would legalize marijuana use for individuals 21 and older regardless of residency. Both campaigns have until July 8 to collect 89,151 valid signatures.
Idaho: Kind Idaho filed an initiative to establish a state medical marijuana program. Sponsors attempted to qualify an identical initiative for the 2020 Idaho ballot but suspended their signature-gathering campaign in April 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Voters could also decide on an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana. The Idaho Way sponsored the initiative. The campaigns need to submit 64,945 valid signatures by May 1.
Ohio: Sponsors of an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana submitted an additional 29,918 signatures on Jan. 13, after the secretary of state verified their initial petition contained 119,825 valid signatures–13,062 less than required. If enough of the additional signatures are valid, the initiative will go before the state legislature.
If the state legislature does not enact it outright, sponsors will have to collect a second round of 132,887 signatures to place it on the November ballot. In 2015, Ohio voters defeated Issue 3 63.65% to 36.35%.
South Dakota: an initiative to legalize marijuana was cleared for signature gathering. In 2020, 54.18% of voters approved Amendment A, which would have legalized marijuana. The state supreme court later ruled the measure violated the state’s single-subject rule and constituted a revision of the constitution rather than an amendment.
New Approach South Dakota, which also sponsored the 2020 amendment, filed the current initiative.
U.S. District Judge Jay Moody has temporarily blocked an Arkansas law banning the use of experimental drugs and gender-transition surgeries on minors, which was set to take effect next week in the state.
“To pull this care midstream from these patients, or minors, would cause irreparable harm,” Moody stated.
Hutchinson said in April that the measure was “extreme” and “overbroad” and that it could not be defended on limited government grounds. The law was scheduled to be enacted on July 28.
Led by Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, he and Republican attorneys general of 17 states — Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas — filed an amicus brief in federal court last Tuesday in support of the Arkansas law.
Wednesday’s judicial injunction against the law appeared as four trans-identifying young people, two doctors, and the American Civil Liberties Union joined to file a lawsuit against the state.
They argued that the statute violates their constitutional rights. The judge said that their motions could indeed be successful at trial.
Holly Dickson, the executive director of the Arkansas chapter of the ACLU, said the ruling sends a message to other states that her organization will not allow the medicalized gender transitioning of children to be taken away from youth.
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (R) will appeal the ruling to defend the law.
“I will not sit idly by while radical groups such as the ACLU use our children as pawns for their own social agenda,” she said.
Family advocates in favor of the law said they believe the truth about the nature of these contested medical practices and procedures will eventually win out.
“We are disappointed but not surprised that a judge has placed a temporary hold on the Arkansas law that protects children from unscientific, experimental, and destructive gender transition procedures,” stated Tony Perkins, president of the Washington-based Family Research Council. “However, we are confident that ultimately state lawmakers will remain free to protect the health and safety of children,”
“The legal challenge to this law is being mounted by a political movement that advocates for using off-label drugs and experimental procedures on minors,” Perkins said. “Yet a growing number of individuals are coming forward to share their stories of being permanently disfigured and/or sterilized from procedures such as puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and irreversible surgeries. The truth about the dangers of these life-altering procedures cannot be ignored.”
The intensifying legal disputes in the United States regarding the medicalization of gender, especially as it pertains to minors, comes as European nations are moving away from the experimental practices.
“He is known to be bisexual but tries to keep it hidden. He puts forth a persona of über-Christian. When he was governor he was very strict on the gay and lesbian communities, things like this, to hide that. He was surveilled then. And it was well known the FBI and CIA do illegal surveillance of many members of — you know, politicians at all levels.”
Residents of nursing homes in Kentucky and Arkansas died after taking COVID Vaccines has been confirmed. Four seniors died in Kentucky right after their vaccination. Three of these people had the virus before getting their vaccines.
Four seniors died in Arkansas, too. The deaths were reported a week after they got vaccinated. Each of the seniors tested positive post mortem.
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) provided nformation on these deaths.
According to VAERS, Kentucky seniors received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. One of the seniors, an 88-year-old woman was “14+ days post covid” and received the shot while she was “unresponsive in her room.” She died an hour and a half later.
The same happened to an 88-year-old man.
Within 4 minutes of getting a vaccine injunction, another woman began vomiting, lost her breath, and died later that night.
Another 85-year-old died two hours after getting the vaccine.
CDC’s Dr. Sarah Oliver claimed, “Data from both clinical trials suggests that people with prior infection are still likely to benefit from vaccination.”
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) disagreed with that information, and the agency corrected the statement.
“CDC is aware of reports of increased reactogenicity (such as fever, chills, and muscle aches) in persons who have had COVID-19,” said a spokesman.
These deaths are similar of the December 2020 VAERS reporting four prior deaths in Arkansas. A 65-year-old got the Moderna vaccine and died two days later. Three other seniors died a week after getting their shot on Dec. 22. An 82-year-old died six days after getting his shot.
“After vaccination, patient tested positive for COVID-19,” the report stated.
An unnamed person reported the death of the 90-year-old senior. Another report indicated The death of a 78-year-old.
Norway has confirmed 23 people died right after getting their vaccine shots. In their reports, they noted “these side effects are common in patients vaccinated with the Phizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines. These shots cause fever, nausea, and diarrhea.”
The symptoms “may have contributed to fatal outcomes in some of the frail patients.”
“There is a possibility that these common adverse reactions, that are not dangerous in fitter, younger patients and are not unusual with vaccines, may aggravate underlying disease in the elderly,” said Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

They all endorse using Article V of the United States Constitution to reign in Deep State operatives and the abuses of power by federal government.
The Convention of States Project is a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution.
The intent is to propose amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.
Americans want to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds?
WHAT’S A CONVENTION OF STATES ANYWAY?
Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. The convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”
Once 34 states apply for a convention to propose amendments on the same issue (i.e., limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government), Article V requires Congress to name the place and the time for the convention. If it fails to exercise this power reasonably, either the courts or the states themselves can override Congressional inaction.
States are free to develop their own selection process for choosing their delegates—properly called “commissioners.” Historically, the most common method used was an election by a joint session of both houses of the state legislature.
Delegates discuss and propose amendment proposals that fit the topic framed by the 34 state resolutions that triggered the convention. All amendment proposals the convention passes by a simple majority of the states will be sent back to the states for ratification.
Each state has one vote at the Convention. If North Carolina sends seven delegates and Nebraska sends nine, each state must caucus on each vote. North Carolina’s one vote would be cast when at least four of its delegates agreed. Nebraska’s vote would be cast by the agreement of at least five of its delegates.
The ratification process ensures no amendments will be passed that do not reflect the desires of the American people. In addition to this, there are numerous other safeguards against a “runaway convention.”
Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG) is the parent organization of the Convention of States Project. CSG provides the resources and experience necessary to make this project a success. The CSG mission is as follows: “Self-governance must be restored across America. Citizens for Self-Governance will elevate awareness and provide resources, advocacy, and education to grassroots organizations and individuals exercising their rights to govern themselves.” CSG sees the COS Project as a means to accomplish this mission.
Update December 12, 2020 2 pm CST:Alaska has joined Texas and other states with the lawsuit.
“Hold my Lone Star Beer,” President Donald J. Trump seems to be saying as he vowed to intervene in the Texas case sent to the Supreme Court, tweeting on Wednesday:
“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton late Monday, by filing suit with the Supreme Court, is asking for a majority of justices to invalidate the Nov. 3 election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
He argues that officials in those four battleground states violated the Constitution by making changes to how ballots were cast and counted without legislative approval.
Four justices must agree for the court to hear the case. The Electoral College is scheduled to vote Dec. 14. In the election case brought before the Supreme Court in 2000, the court ruled on Dec. 12.
As of this writing, 18 more states have joined Texas to fight the electoral fraud perpetrated by Democrat operatives.
Don’t Believe Mainstream Media
In another tweet, Trump said, “This was not my case as has been so incorrectly reported. The case that everyone has been waiting for is the State’s case with Texas and numerous others joining. It is very strong, ALL CRITERIA MET. How can you have a presidency when a vast majority think the election was RIGGED?”
Trump was referring to a case brought by Republican Pennsylvania U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly against the state of Pennsylvania, which the Supreme Court rejected to hear on Tuesday.
Article 3, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution states that the Supreme Court can hear cases brought by one state against another without first going to a lower court.
Paxton realizes that the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court is exclusive when it comes to disputes between the states.
According to US Constitution, states cannot sue other states in any court except SCOTUS. Congress has no power to regulate it by statute.
SCOTUS remedies are unique and can be both legal and equitable, granting them the sole power to make a ruling. This is literally a constitutional jurisdiction that grants SCOTUS the authority to rule how to decide the dispute, including what evidence to consider.
The justices are responsible for the development of the evidentiary record and are not bound by the rulings or fact findings of any other court.
Texas Is On Course
Texas automatically has standing to challenge the constitutional bonafides of another state’s electoral college selection process.
Since SCOTUS controls the process constitutionally, there are no procedural technicalities that can defeat jurisdiction other than what is expressly set forth in the Constitution.
SCOTUS must decide the issues because the Constitution expressly leaves the decision to SCOTUS.
There is no abstention doctrine or political question dodge available.
In essence, Texas said, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court thinks election fraud doesn’t matter because those contesting the election waited until after the election and the fraud to file their contest.”
Paxton told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday “Our request is we want to be heard” before the U.S. Supreme Court. “… We’re pleading with the U.S. Supreme Court, please hear our case. Give us a chance at least to argue what we think is right. We want to argue the Constitution.”
Compromised Leaders Must Decide: Do What’s Right or Politically Die
If SCOTUS decides to remand the resolution to the legislators, those state’s elected officials realize the truth that their constituents, by a large margin voted for Trump and MAGA.
By voting against President Trump, many would be ending their career with their voters. Even those under the influence of China, George Soros and Big Pharma lobbyists would have to decide if they would fall on the sword (hoping to be taken care of by them).
If remanded to the state legislatures, then the corrupt ones would be wise to vote fast to avoid the MAGA rallies.
Trump’s First Responsibility: Defend America
Trump will defend the security of the United States with or without SCOTUS. He has to, its his job, thats what his oath of office requires him to do, and I couldn’t think of a better person to lead us into the fray.
China owns DOMINION, and controls all the officials who run the machines at every level of government.
Constitution experts agree that the Supreme Court should recognize Constitutional mandates “are being changed, perverted and, in some cases, outright ignored by thoroughly corrupted government officials, thereby rendering any actions to return decision making powers to the same corrupt and criminal system just as corrupt.”
By now, the justices know there are some officials at every level that are corrupt and engaging in criminal behavior, and “they realize there’s a very good chance that sending it back into that system again would be a mistake with the votes stolen and legitimate voters disenfranchised.”
States That Have Joined Texas
“The integrity of our elections is a critical part of our nation and it must be upheld,” said Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said his state is committed to “the fight to ensure election integrity” and that the Supreme Court’s decision on the lawsuit will “instruct me as to how the State of Alabama will proceed in our fight to ensure election integrity.”
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said Tuesday that “tens of millions of our fellow citizens in the country have deep concerns regarding the conduct of the 2020 federal elections,” adding that “the Justices should hear and decide the case which we have joined representing the citizens of Louisiana.”
“Election integrity is central to our republic,” said in a tweet Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt on Tuesday. “And I will defend it at every turn. As I have in other cases – I will help lead the effort in support of Texas’ #SCOTUS filing today.”
According to a Georgia lawsuit filed by President Trump’s campaign, over 30 violations of their state law were cited.
There were 2,560 felons who voted, 66,247 underage voters, and 2,423 votes from people who were not registered.
The lawsuit additionally lists 1,043 individuals registered at PO boxes, 4,926 individuals who voted in Georgia after registering in another state, 395 individuals who voted in two states, 15,700 votes from people who moved out of state before the election, 40,279 votes of people who moved without re-registering in their new county and 30,000 – 40,000 absentee ballots lacking proper signature matching and verification.
Currently, Biden leads the state with 2,473,633 votes to Trump’s 2,461,854. The lawsuit has highlighted nearly 200,000 illegal votes, more than enough to change the results.
The lawsuit also showed that statistically it is not possible for Biden to win all four states.
“For former Vice President Biden to win these four States collectively, the odds of that event happening decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power.”
In Pennsylvania, where Biden won by more than 80,000 votes, a group of Republicans, led by Rep. Mike Kelly, asked the state Supreme Court to overturn the state’s 2019 law on mail-in voting.
Their suit argues that a state statute, known as Act 77, violates both the state and federal Constitution by allowing for “no-excuse mail-in” votes on a large scale.
More than 2.5 million Pennsylvania residents voted by mail during the election, constituting more than one-third of total ballots cast statewide.
The state’s Supreme Court shot down the lawsuit, prompting Republican officials to make an appeal to the Supreme Court.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has offered to make arguments if SCOTUS decides to hear the case.
In Wisconsin, following a recount in its two most populous counties, the state’s Supreme Court declined to take up a Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to invalidate up to 221,000 ballots. The campaign filed lawsuits in lower courts, which were then combined. The fate of that case is currently pending.
