Breaking: Hostage situation at Colleyville, Texas, synagogue – DPS, SWAT, and FBI on scene –Police began “SWAT operations” at around 11 a.m. at Congregation Beth Israel on the 6100 block of Pleasant Run Road. | 15 Jan 2022 | Law enforcement agencies have responded to a hostage situation at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas. SWAT officers with the Colleyville Police Department, as well as officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety and FBI, are on the scene at the Jewish synagogue, located on the 6100 block of Pleasant Run Road near Tinker Road and State Highway 121. FBI crisis negotiators said, since arriving at the scene, they have had continued contact with the suspect who is holding the hostages. Citing sources familiar with the ongoing situation, both ABC News and the Associated Press have reported that the individual who is holding the hostages is armed. They also report that at least four hostages are believed to be inside of the synagogue, and that the synagogue’s rabbi is believed to be among those being held hostage.
Officials say suspect in hostage situation believed to be motivated by case of prisoner linked to terrorism | 15 Jan 2022 | 6:01 p.m. EST update: Two law enforcement officials tell CNN investigators believe the suspect in the hostage situation at a Texas synagogue may have been motivated by a desire to free Aafia Siddiqui, who is serving an 86-year sentence at a facility in Texas. She was convicted in 2010 on seven charges, including attempted murder and armed assault on US officers in Afghanistan. The sources tell CNN that assessment is based on both discussions with the suspect and audio heard on the synagogue’s livestream.
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s financial disclosure shows $10.4M in investments | 15 Jan 2022 | Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor and his wife had 10.4 million in investments at the end of 2020, newly released records show. That sum — including 2.3 million in unrealized gains — was held in various mutual funds. Fauci’s 2020 financial disclosure was released publicly Friday night by Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), who Fauci had called a “moron” after he inquired into Fauci’s financial disclosures during a Senate proceeding Tuesday.
Fauci Was Told Privately by Key Scientists That COVID-19 Natural Origin Was ‘Highly Unlikely,’ Newly Unredacted Emails Confirm | 13 Jan 2022 | Top U.S. health officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, scrambled in early 2020 to respond to public reporting of a potential connection between COVID-19 and the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. This response, which included a secret Feb. 1, 2020, teleconference, was loosely detailed in previously released and heavily redacted emails. Those emails strongly suggested that Fauci and a small group of top scientists sought to promote the natural origin theory, despite having evidence and internal expert opinions that pointed to the possibility of a leak from the Wuhan lab. The newly unredacted emails, released on Jan. 11 by House Oversight Committee Republicans, confirm and illustrate a pattern of lies and coverup. From the emails, it appears the effort was spearheaded by Fauci himself but also involved his boss, recently retired National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Francis Collins, as well as Jeremy Farrar, the head of the British Wellcome Trust.
Whitmer admin significantly undercounted Michigan nursing home COVID deaths, state auditor finds–Some reports are saying the number could push north of 40%. | 13 Jan 2022 | Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s administration undercounted the COVID-19 deaths in the state’s long-term care facilities by 30%, according to a state auditor general report reviewed by Fox News. The report, which is expected to be publicly released on Monday, is likely to renew criticism of the Democratic governor’s performance during the pandemic. Michigan state Rep. Steven Johnson, a Republican, told Fox News Digital in a Thursday phone call that Whitmer is “well known” for her executive order “to place COVID-positive patients into nursing homes.” The number could be higher, however, with some reporters saying the number of undercounted deaths could be north of 40%. “Three in 10 [bodies] went uncounted, according to the auditor general,” journalist Charlie LeDuff told Fox News Digital in a Thursday email. “When added to the state’s total, death in Michigan’s long-term care facilities are in fact 42% higher than are being reported, which makes Whitmer’s Michigan no better than Cuomo’s New York.”
Thousands protest in Vienna against mandatory vaccination | 15 Jan 2022 | Thousands of people took to the streets of Austria’s capital on Saturday to protest against government plans to introduce mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for all next month. “The government must go!” crowds chanted at one rally in central Vienna in what has become a routine Saturday event. Parliament is scheduled to vote next week on the issue, which has polarised the country as coronavirus cases surge.
Novak Djokovic faces deportation from Australia again, this time because his presence may ‘excite anti-vaccination sentiment’ | 14 Jan 2021 | Men’s world number-one tennis player Novak Djokovic had his visa application revoked by the Australian government a second time due to his being unvaccinated against COVID-19. The Serbian tennis star now faces deportation once again and will be unable to defend his title at the 2022 Australian Open unless he can win a last-minute appeal. The Guardian reported that Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke on Friday used his ministerial discretion to revoke Djokovic’s visa on public interest grounds, saying his presence at the tournament could “excite anti-vaccination sentiment.” In a statement, the minister reportedly said he canceled the visa “on health and good order grounds, [and] on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.”
Novak Djokovic is set to be deported as his visa is cancelled for the second time, throwing Australian Open into disarray –Officials said player, unvaccinated against Covid, may pose a risk to community [which is insane, as the COVID vaccine doesn’t prevent transmission of COVID] –Immigration Minister Alex Hawke used discretionary powers to cancel his visa –Djokovic could now be banned from a new Australian visa for three years | 14 Jan 2022 | Novak Djokovic is set to be deported after his visa was cancelled for a second time today, throwing next week’s Australian Open tournament into disarray. Officials said the world tennis No. 1, who is unvaccinated for COVID-19, may pose a risk to the community. The cancellation means Djokovic would be barred from a new Australian visa for three years, except under certain circumstances. Djokovic, the Australian Open defending champion, was included in the draw on Thursday as top seed and was due to face fellow Serb Miomir Kecmanovic for his opening match, probably on Monday or Tuesday.
Quebec judge takes away father’s visitation rights to his kids because he’s unvaccinated –The children’s mother labeled the man ‘anti-vaccine’ and a conspiracy theorist’ after he asked for additional visitation during Christmas, which the judged noted in his decision. | 13 Jan 2022 | A Quebec father had his visitation rights temporarily suspended after the mother told a judge he is “anti-vaccine” and posts “conspiracy” theories on social media. Judge Jean-Sébastien Vaillancourt of the Superior Court for the District of Montreal handed down a ruling on December 23 that “temporarily” barred a Quebec father from visiting his three children, ages 12, 4, and 7 months, because he is “unvaccinated” and makes social media posts that express opposition to Quebec’s tyrannical so-called public health measures. According to the National Post, the father had petitioned the judge for an additional visitation day over the Christmas holidays with his 12-year-old, at which point the mother told the judge that the request should be denied as she “recently” learned the man was unvaccinated and, according to the judgment, a “conspiracy theorist” and “anti-vaccine.”

JR Hoell is the founder of ReOpen NH, an activist group that criticizes COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Hoell, who has also led public education reform efforts and promotes Second Amendment and homeschooling rights, told The Epoch Times that the New Hampshire Division of Children Youth and Family (DCYF) showed up at his doorstep on the night of Dec. 9 with an emergency ex parte order to take custody of his son. “I want to go on the record as calling the DCYF a terrorist organization,” Hoell told The Epoch Times, “they have no grounds to seek removal of my son from his home.”
DeSantis says Roberts and Kavanaugh lacked ‘backbone’ in ruling on vaccine mandate for health care workers | 14 Jan 2022 | Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis knocked Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh for lacking a “backbone” in their decision on the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for certain health care workers. The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed the health care worker mandate to go into effect but blocked enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees. Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh sided with the liberal justices [and the oligarchy] on the health care worker mandate. DeSantis slammed them both during a guest appearance on the popular conservative podcast “Ruthless” that aired Friday.

The scuffles left four officers injured and saw several protesters detained. Hundreds of people gathered outside the Bulgarian parliament building in the capital, Sofia, on Wednesday. The protest, staged by the nationalist Vazrazhdane (Revival) party, decried the standing anti-coronavirus restrictions, including the green pass system put in place by the country’s authorities.
NYC vaccine mandate protesters arrested at Times Square Olive Garden restaurant [while murderers, rapists, and thieves are allowed to roam free under NYC’s Soros-installed DA] –Proof of vaccination is required in New York City to dine in at a restaurant [while no valid ID is required to vote] | 14 Jan 2022 | Several protesters demonstrating against coronavirus vaccine mandates at New York City’s restaurants were arrested Friday evening after they refused to leave an Olive Garden location in Times Square, according to videos posted to social media. “This is the Civil Rights movement again!” one man shouted while being handcuffed, a video from independent journalist @ScooterCasterNY showed. In another video posted by the journalist, protesters were heard chanting “U-S-A!” and singing the national anthem before their arrests… The protesters remained inside the Olive Garden for two hours, refusing to leave, prompting the restaurant, which usually stays open until midnight, to close early, according to @ScooterCasterNY.
Twitter Allows Iran’s Animated Video Depicting Trump Assassination | 13 Jan 2022 | Iran officials have not been banned by Twitter for making calls to assassinate former President Donald Trump, and now Iran has released a video showing Trump being killed by a drone as he plays golf in Mar-a-Lago. Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s website has published a video vowing revenge against Trump for the killing of QUDs Force Cmdr. Qassem Soleimani in January 2020, according to the Sun. “Outrageous. There must be a swift and strong reaction from @jakejsullivan and @JoeBiden,” Grenell tweeted. “And why is @Twitter allowing this guy to use their platform?” The call for violence on Twitter has Republicans denouncing a double standard that permits violence against conservatives and Twitter censorship over Jan. 6 – blocking the U.S. president’s account on its platform, while protecting accounts of terrorists and enemies of the United States. “So, the leftist oligarchs at Twitter will allow the [guard corps] to tweet death threats at President Trump but will deplatform him for calling for a peaceful protest?” Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., of the House Foreign Affairs Committee told The Washington Free Beacon. “Last I checked, making death threats is inciting violence.”
DOJ charges Oath Keepers founder, 10 others with seditious conspiracy related to Jan. 6 riot –The move marks the first set of charges echoing [false] claims of an insurrection | 13 Jan 2022 | The Department of Justice unveiled seditious conspiracy charges against 11 defendants, including the founder and leader of the right-wing Oath Keepers militia group, Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, for their role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. More than 150 of the defendants have pleaded guilty, and 71 had been sentenced as of Jan. 1, according to Politico. Most of these sentenced Jan. 6 offenders had been convicted of misdemeanors, such as illegally entering the Capitol building, and fewer than half of them have received prison time. Democrats and media outlets have framed the riot as an “insurrection,” yet no defendants had faced charges of insurrection or sedition until the new charges against Rhodes and others on Jan. 13.
