RNC Releases ‘2024 GOP Platform to Make America Great Again’ Inspired by Trump’s Vision for America — Here Are the Details

Reprinted from NOQ report.

On Monday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) officially released its 2024 GOP Platform, titled “Make America Great Again!”

This comprehensive platform is inspired by the enduring vision of former President Donald Trump and aims to address the nation’s most pressing issues with common sense and patriotic fervor.

Trump’s campaign released a statement applauding the adoption of his vision by the RNC Platform Committee:

“Today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) Platform Committee adopted President Donald J. Trump’s 2024 Republican Party Platform with overwhelming support– a pro-American agenda that stands in stark contrast to the record of weakness, failure, and dishonesty created by Joe Biden. President Trump’s platform serves as a contract with the American voter that makes clear what we can and will deliver under a President Trump administration with the Republican Party leading the country for the next four years.” […]

Dr. Scott Jensen discusses disappearing journal articles on the Covid narrative
HEALTH WELLNESS

Dr Scott Jensen: Medical Journal Articles About Covid Are Disappearing And No One Is Talking About it

Dr. Scott Jensen says medical journal articles are disappearing, and no one is talking about it.

It should come as no surprise that there are some nefarious things happening with regard to the ugly history of the failed Covid vaccine program.

Now that it's off the radar, because Covid seems to have largely passed (except for those still getting the vaccines) this kind of thing can happen a little more easily.

Most people are just glad Covid is "over." But the problem is that no one is being held accountable for the aftermath (yet).

Here's a little snippet from the video commentary posted below.

Hundreds of Medical Journal Articles are disappearing and no one is talking about it. Jazz Shaw - the medical field is erasing its own covid era history

Pfizer and the rest of the big pharma companies assured the government that everything was just fine with the vaccines, because they had been doing super serious testing.

And the government dutifully reported the cheerful news to us, while using all of that data to impose lockdowns, mask mandates and immunity passport systems.

And now, according to one group that tracks publications in scientific journals, a lot of the original research and test results are mysteriously disappearing.

More than three hundred papers and scientific articles have vanished in the past year.

We knew during the pandemic that several specific instances occurred where high quality journals such as the lancet, NEJM, published articles that a short time later required a retraction or revision. And I think you and I know why.

Give a listen here. It's a five minute video but it makes you aware of the depth of the problem and makes you think about how you need to start capturing some of this stuff when you see it online - before it just "goes away."

Dr Jensen is pointing out something that wouldn't surprise many of us - if we knew about it.

I remember reading the hit piece in the Lancet a few years ago when they came out with a paper pretty quickly after President Trump spoke of hydroxychloroquine and how it could help with Covid.

While I'm not a doctor, I know how to cross-reference data and use a medical dictionary to work through medical papers when they're a little over my head.

My opinion, when that first came out, and after an hour of solid research, was that it was a hit piece.

They couldn't get the EUA for the vaccines if hydroxychloroquine might actually work for Covid. So they had to "take it out."

And, sure enough, about 6 weeks later, they ran a retraction on the article. But by then, the damage was done and the media used that article to malign both hydroxychloroquine and the president that was promoting it.

Retractions are never front page news.

But does anyone remember this little doozy?

Don't forget to save often. Lest we forget.

Those who don't remember history are doomed to repeat it.

Are You A Domestic Terrorist? The Government Is Invading Your Privacy to Find Out

Have you recently been a victim of crime? Do you know someone who has? In many parts of our nation, especially the cities, it’s much more dangerous than just a few years ago. Murders, assaults, carjackings, and other violent offenses are on the rise in many urban areas. There are several factors behind these terrible trends, but an important one is that far left prosecutors seem to care far more about the criminals than the victims, releasing violent people with low or no bail and often refusing to prosecute them at all.

On Monday, Sara was in New York City covering a House Judiciary Committee hearing that featured testimony from family members of crime victims, a bodega owner who was charged with murder after stabbing an attacker in self-defense, as well as law enforcement experts. Democrats on the committee scoffed at the victims, calling them “props in a MAGA Broadway production.”

But Sara was not just appalled by the sneering of Democrats who were fiercely defending the Manhattan District Attorney who is weak on crime but also prosecuting President Trump. She also shares the horrifying things she saw on the streets of New York City during her brief time in the Big Apple.

Biden’s not backing down…announces reelection bid for 2024

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Rep. Jim Jordan R-Ohio, claiming that Jordan is interfering in his investigation and waging intimidating tactics over Bragg’s indictment of President Donald J Trump, the lawsuit states.

President Trump was indicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records that were related to hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels. Bragg claims that President Trump was hiding other crimes within the falsification of his business records but has yet to provide any evidence to the public on what crimes were committed.

Jordan, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee is investigating claims that the bureaucracy has been weaponized against Trump and the GOP. During the House Weaponization Subcommittee hearing Jordan, R-Ohio, has had numerous witnesses testify about the Biden administration’s alleged collusion with Big Tech companies that have violated First Amendment rights. Jordan, who has spoken to numerous FBI whistleblowers, allege that the bureau urged social media companies, to include Twitter and Facebook, not to distribute stories referencing Biden’s son, Hunter Biden’s laptop that contained a plethora of information on the Biden family’s business dealings, as well as exposed Hunter’s penchant for drugs and prostitutes. The New York Post was first banned on Twitter for Miranda Devine’s excellent investigative journalism exposed in her best selling book ‘Laptop From Hell.’

As for Bragg’s charges, Trump pleaded ‘not guilty’ to all counts. Bragg has been criticized by both Democrats and Republicans for bringing these very weak charges against the former President.

Even staunch Trump critic former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blasted Bragg telling John Catsimatidis on WABC 770s radio, “you have a cynical public, they don’t believe anyone and when you start to see these prosecutors bring political cases, it just affirms everybody’s cynicism…It’s a coincidence that Bragg goes after Trump and Tish James goes after Trump and Georgia goes after Trump. That’s all a coincidence,” Cuomo scoffed.

Cuomo was referring to James’ investigation of the Trump Organization, as well as the “District Attorney of Fulton County’s probe into Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election,” as reported by the New York Post.

Bragg’s lawsuit states, “in response to an unprecedentedly brazen and unconstitutional attack by members of Congress on an ongoing New York State criminal prosecution and investigation of former President Donald J. Trump.”

A statement from DA Bragg in the lawsuit states, “Chairman Jordan’s subpoena is an unconstitutional attempt to undermine an ongoing New York felony criminal prosecution and investigation,” Bragg continued,  “As our complaint details, this is an unprecedented, illegitimate interference by Congress that lacks any legal merit and defies basic principles of federalism.”

Jordan responded to Bragg’s lawsuit on twitter.

“First, they indict a president for no crime,” he said. “Then, they sue to block congressional oversight when we ask questions about the federal funds they say they used to do it.” 

On Monday, the house judiciary committee will be holding a hearing in Manhattan on the crime in New York. The hearing will be on what the committee calls the Soros funded DA’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies.

OPINION: The recipe that made El Salvador great again

By Damian Merlo

While we see America’s leadership and respect decline around the world at an accelerated rate under the leadership (or lack thereof) of Joe Biden, El Salvador under the leadership of President Nayib Bukele has gained the respect and admiration of many in the United States as well as the people in Latin America. El Salvador has become a beacon of hope, a reference point on how to address crime. Simply put, by putting criminals where they belong, in jail.

El Salvador has lowered the murder rate in 2022 to 7.8 per 100,000 and thus far in 2023, to an unprecedented 3.6 murders per 100,000 according to government statistics. Compare that to cities like New Orleans, where that number is  25.8 per 100,000 or the US murder capital, New Orleans with 74 murders per 100,000 as The Center Square has reported in February of this year.

Tucker Carlson said “Americans should apply for asylum in El Salvador, it’s safer than Baltimore and Chicago.” This could not be more fitting at a time when American liberal-run cities allow criminals to roam freely and act with impunity.

El Salvador has also continued to grow its economy, together with security, it has addressed the root cause of illegal migration, which Vice President Harris has ignored. CBP numbers show that less than 2.4% of encounters at the border came from El Salvador thus far this year, there has been a 40% reduction of numbers as compared to 2022. Of course, the Biden administration choses to sanctions Salvadoran officials, rather than work with them in these successful policies to address illegal migration.

Datoworld, an organization that tracks Presidential approval ratings, places Bukele at 91% approval, while President Biden stands at 56% disapprovals, according to the latest FoxNews poll. President Bukele’s security plan is supported by 95% of the population, that is more than 9 our of 10 people, who can now live in peace and go about their day without worrying about gang threats, extortions, or even being murdered.

While the United States continues to lose leadership and moral authority to dictate what is a “democracy”, El Salvador continues to make progress for its people. As President Bukele stated in a tweet, after President Trump’s indictment“Imagine if this happened to a leading opposition presidential candidate here in El Salvador”. What moral authority do we have to tell other countries what to do when we don’t even respect or follow the rule of la here in America? We are instead, weaponizing the FBI and other law enforcement agencies against political opponents something that only used to happen in third-world countries. The Biden administration should go after real criminals who terrorize liberal cities each and every day.

Magazines such as Colombia’s “Semana” – Time Magazine equivalent – call Bukele a “Miracle” and in Peru, a country that had been plagued by political instability, main media outlets have called for Bukele style policies, saying “We need a Bukele”. Even here in the US, a Newsweek opinion editorial called for “We need an American Bukele”, because of the out of control crime and murders is so many American cities.

There’s plenty of coverage about human rights and El Salvador but it’s completely misguided. With the so-called human rights groups don’t understand is that the rights of Salvadorans have been violated for the past 30 years and it’s only now that the rights of over 6 million people are finally being respected. Thanks for the policies make implemented by the Salvadoran government. When over 60,000 Salvadoran citizens were killed by the gangs, these human right groups and Soros-backed fake news outlets were silent.

There’s no shortage of mainstream, media articles, interviewing mothers of so-called innocent, jailed gang Members. No mother wife or daughter wants to believe or accept their loved one is a member of a gang, but the harsh reality is that the vast majority of the 68,000 plus of those arrested are member of a gang. Just this week, when a Salvadoran police officer was killed by two gang members who have evaded capture, President Bukele did what our own president fails to do, protect our men and women in uniform. Just 24 hours following the assassination, 5,000 troops and 500 police officers were deployed to the town where this murder took place to hunt down these killers. In other words, there is zero tolerance for criminals in El Salvador, especially cop killers, a lesson for our liberal leaders, who are more worried about the rights of criminals than law abiding citizens.

According to El Salvador Ministry of justice and public safety over 4000 people have been released from prison once investigations showed they had no ties with terrorist organizations. This, of course, is an inconvenient truth to the many mainstream news outlets, who either chose to ignore this statistic, or bury it deep into their stories. It is not in the El Salvador’s government interest to arrest innocent people, but mistakes do happen, and this is why they have a judicial system, which seems to be working much better than our own, just ask Sidney Holmes who spent more than 35 years serving a 400 year sentence before his innocence was proven.

On transnational crime, El Salvador has also worked closely with SOUTHCOM and its military counterparts in the Pentagon to intercept record breaking drug shipments at high seas. El Salvador has conducted over 14 successful joint operations, in which they have ceased over 21 tons of cocaine valued at more than $545 million, confiscated over 17 low profile vessels as far as 500 nautical miles off the coast of El Salvador, and detained more than 50 individuals of varies nationalities, including Mexicans and Colombians. Transnational crime has no place in El Salvador.

Luckily, on a recent visit by Sen. Marco Rubio to El Salvador, he saw first-hand the results of the war against the gangs, and how the Biden Administration, instead of embracing and looking to replicate these successful policies, condemns and sanctions members of the Bukele Administration. As Sen. Rubio put it, we make friends with our enemies, and be tough with our allies. This is the quickest way to isolate America, and because of these policies, we are losing our leadership position around the world.

President Biden and the democrats have much to learn from El Salvador and President Nayib Bukele. Implementing common sense policies is not difficult, it just takes political will and the basic understanding that those who hold elected positions are there to serve the people, not themselves.

DURHAM: Evidence Clinton campaign orchestrated fake Russia collusion to ‘vilify Donald Trump’

Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Trump Russia probe concluded Monday with a 306 page report outlining the bureau’s political bias and failure to objectively investigate the false allegations made against then President Donald J. Trump that he colluded with Russia.

In the report, a copy of which was obtained by this reporter, Durham outlined in detail the process of his investigation into the bureau’s 2016 Crossfire Hurricane investigation into Trump, as well as his associates.

“Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI, failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report,” stated the report released Monday. “As notes, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith committed a criminal offense by fabricating language in an email that was material to the FBI obtaining a FISA surveillance application displayed, at best, a cavalier attitude towards accuracy and completeness.”

Clinesmith pleaded guilty to altering a document related to the FISA warrant, a secret surveillance application,  of  former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page during the Russia investigation. He was the first official to be charged in a special Justice Department review of the investigation into ties between Russia and Trump.

Clinesmith pleaded guilty to a single false statement charge. He admitted to doctoring an email that the FBI used to get the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court’s approval to eavesdrop on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page in 2017.

Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Jim Jordan stated on Monday, that he has reached out to “the Justice Department to have Special Counsel John Durham testify next week” on Capital Hill.

Moreover, the report states that the FBI did not sufficiently investigate the debunked dossier compiled by former British Spy Christopher Steele who relied primarily on “a U.S.-based Russian national, Igor Danchenko, to collect information that ultimately formed the core of allegations found in the reports.”

The political bias appears to be more than evident. For example, in the report Durham establishes that “Danchenko was responsible for 80 % of the ‘intel’ and 50 % of the analysis contained in the Steele Dossier.”

I think an even more stunning revelation in the report is that Durham proved how Hillary Clinton’s campaign was directly involved in trying to link President Trump to Russia. This wasn’t a secret to the Obama administration, as according to the report, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, then Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI director James Come were all  briefed on Clinton’s campaign.

Could Hillary Clinton be charged?

“The Office also considered as part of its investigation the government’s handling of
certain intelligence that it received during the summer of 2016. That intelligence concerned the
purported “approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign
policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the
Russian security services.»391 We refer to that intelligence hereafter as the ‘Clinton Plan
intelligence.’ DNI John Ratcliffe declassified the following information about the Clinton Plan
intelligence in September 2020 and conveyed it to the Senate Judiciary Committee:
In late July 2016, U.S. intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence
analysis alleging that U.S Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a
campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by
tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian
intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.
According to his handwritten notes, CA Director Brennan subsequently briefed
President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence, including
the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her
foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming
interference by Russian security services.”

Fake, AI-generated photo of Pentagon explosion causes brief drop in US stocks

DA Bragg attempts to weaponize legal system against GOP? Sues Jordan to hamper probe

Hillary Clinton Criticizes Republicans’ Defense of President Donald J Trump Amid Federal Indictment

GettyImages 1251914238

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed strong criticism of Republicans for their unwavering support of President Donald J Trump in the face of a federal indictment related to the alleged mishandling of classified documents.

Clinton, who faced her own controversies surrounding the use of a private email server during her 2016 presidential campaign, was asked about the Trump indictment and the Republican response to it during an interview on “Pod Save America.”

Republicans have drawn comparisons between Trump’s indictment and Clinton’s email scandal, pointing out that while Clinton was criticized, she was not prosecuted. They argue that a double standard exists when it comes to the prosecution of politicians. Clinton dismissed these comparisons, stating that it is absurd how Republicans refuse to engage with the facts presented in the indictment.

“I do think it’s odd let’s just say to the point of being absurd how that is their only response,” Clinton stated. “They refuse to read the indictment, they refuse to engage with the facts — there’s nothing new about that.”

Moreover on Tuesday, President Donald J Trump, pleaded not guilty to 37 federal felony counts.  The indictment accuses Trump of failing to comply with demands to return classified documents, including plans for a retaliatory attack on an undisclosed foreign power, as well as sensitive information related to defense capabilities and the U.S. nuclear program.

The unauthorized disclosure of these classified documents is said to pose significant risks to national security, foreign relations, the safety of the U.S. military, and intelligence collection methods.

President Trump as well as many other members of the Republican Party accuse the Biden administration of directly interfering with the upcoming 2024 election by weaponizing the DOJ to persecute, President Trump, the leading political opponent to the current administration.

A former President has never been indicted in the United States of America, many claim this to be a very dangerous and perhaps irreversible path to a “banana republic.” A similar comparison can be drawn from the current indictments on President Trump to that of the Russian government and the incarceration of Alexei Navalny, Putins leading political opposition.

In response to the indictment, Trump criticized Smith as a “deranged lunatic” during a public appearance and accused President Biden of orchestrating his arrest for political reasons. Trump likened his situation to political persecution commonly associated with fascist or communist regimes. President Trump brought attention to the dangers of the current indictment and all past political attacks when he stated he is experiencing, “political persecution like something straight out of a fascist or communist nation.”

Several other Republicans, including potential 2024 presidential candidates, have also raised concerns about a perceived double standard and have pointed to the corruption involving not only Clinton but also President Biden, for not being indicted for reasons equal to if not far more serious then what President Trump is undergoing.

Clinton emphasized that the focus should be on Trump’s actions and not on attempts to confuse the public or divert attention with extraneous issues in an attempt to deflect her own corruption.

The dangers of weaponizing the DOJ and attacking President Trump may be the very reason Clinton is attempting to take the spotlight off of her and President Biden. Just as the Biden Administration is using the DOJ to come after President Trump, if the Trump administration were to take back The White House in 2024, he could do the exact same thing which is what makes weaponizing the DOJ to attack a former president and current GOP leader a harrowing decision.

She expressed astonishment at the extent to which Republicans are defending Trump, describing their efforts as beyond anything she could have imagined. Clinton stated, “It is so profoundly disturbing how this could have been the break,” insinuating a departure from the Trump administration, she continued to say, “this could have been the opportunity to say ‘thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us, we really appreciate it, but this is kind of serious and so we’re not going to continue to defend you.’”

The writing is on the wall, Clinton’s fear of President Trump regaining the White House is evident when she suggested that the indictment provided an opportunity for the Republican Party to distance itself from Trump, particularly considering his current lead in the 2024 Republican primary polls. This suggestion is a clear sign of election interference and that the indictment has nothing to do with the legality of Trumps actions but solely to keep him from being elected as the 47th President of the United States.
