Nothing better illustrates the Biden administration's utter incompetence in safeguarding America's interests than the revelation that a number of federal agencies are reportedly purchasing surveillance drones from China. The Pentagon has previously advised against U.S. agencies purchasing Chinese-made drones on the grounds that they could be used to transfer sensitive data to Beijing's communist rulers.

Styled by none other than Harley Earl, these striking Art Deco streamline buses were built by GM in the late 1930s for its so-called "Parade of Progress," a kind of traveling auto/technology show that rolled from city to city to show off the company's industrial might and the future of manufacturing.

"It is the policy of this administration: we do not agree with the building of the wall," Mayorkas said. "The law provides that individuals can make a claim for humanitarian relief.

So It Can't Be
'Interpreted to Mean That Vaccines are 100% Effective'
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently revised its definition for vaccine and vaccination on one of its web pages, saying that the new definition is "more transparent" and can't be misinterpreted. "While there have been slight changes in wording over time to the definition of 'vaccine' on CDC's website, those haven't impacted the overall definition," a CDC spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email.

|Fauci Lied: Documents Showcase
Coronavirus Research at Wuhan Lab
The Intercept obtained over 900 pages about EcoHealth Alliance's U.S.-funded coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. The documents detail two unpublished proposals funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and updates to EcoHealth Alliance's research. You will see why the left and Fauci owe Sen. Rand Paul a ton of apologies.
NIH Funded Wuhan Virus Gain-of-Function Research
New documents on NIH-funded Wuhan virus gain-of-function research obtained by FOIA may indicate that Dr. Anthony Fauci has not been completely forthcoming with his knowledge of the origins of COVID-19. The 900-plus page document, containing two separate research grants, is connected "with ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation by The Intercept against the National Institutes of Health" was released to the public on Sept. 6.
|Biden Droned the Wrong Guy,
Innocent Aid Worker Killed in Kabul Strike: NYT
A U.S. airstrike in Kabul against a supposed Islamic State bomber actually killed an innocent man who worked for a U.S. aid group and his family, according to newly published testimony and footage – raising the specter that the Pentagon lied to the public about the strike. The reported case of mistaken identity also further tars President Biden for his chaotic pullout of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, which left behind hundreds of U.S. citizens and thousands of at-risk Afghans.

Trump's Military Board Appointees Resign or Be Dismissed
The Biden administration has asked 12 officials appointed to military service academy advisory boards by former President Donald Trump to resign or be dismissed.

Puts Important Relationship With India in Peril
Gordon G. Chang
If Washington is going to deter a militant China, it needs the support of democratic India. Unfortunately, India looks like the country most immediately – and perhaps most adversely – affected by the Biden-created debacle. As a result, New Delhi could decide to side not with America but with a Chinese ally, Moscow. New Delhi was one of the staunchest supporters of the American-backed Afghan government and was working alongside Washington in the war against the Taliban and other insurgents.

Figures Slammed for
'taking the bait' on False Story About Ivermectin Overdoses
A number of mainstream media figures and outlets appear to have been fooled by a false story that some Oklahoma hospitals were overwhelmed with patients having overdosed on the drug ivermectin, a parasite-fighting medication that can also be sold over the counter as a veterinary drug. The story, which was originally reported at Oklahoma's KFOR-TV news, quoted testimony from Dr. Jason McElyea claiming that hospitals in a rural part of Oklahoma were being overrun with patients overdosing on the drug, causing gunshot victims to having to wait to be treated.
and Lies Are Not a Plan
Who doesn't want misleading Twitter snark from their supposedly serious government agencies? The FDA knows perfectly well that Ivermectin is not just horse or cow medicine – the agency itself approved it for human use, just not for COVID.

Non-inhaled medical marijuana and its derivatives offer few benefits in treating chronic pain, leading a panel of experts to offer a "weak" recommendation for its use for the condition in an article published Wednesday by BMJ.

House Democrats rebuffed Republican efforts Thursday to remove $200 million for the Presidio in the San Francisco district of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with one lawmaker declaring that she deserved "a little bit more" because of her hard work. Rep.
