“ Jimmy Dore is outrageous and outraged, bothersome and bothered, a crucial, profane, passionate voice for progressives and freethinkers in 21st century America.” -Patton Oswalt

COVID Booster Approved Despite ZERO Human Testing
The FDA has announced emergency use authorization of a booster shot that targets the omicron BA.5 COVID variant. How the current state of the pandemic qualifies as an “emergency” is anyone’s guess. As is the likely effect on anyone given the booster since the authorization process did not involve any actual human testing. In fact, the little information Pfizer has made available to the public involves tests performed on eight mice. And that’s it!

Desperate Dems Cheer FBI & Raid On Mar-A-Lago
The political world was rocked last week when FBI agents descended on Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s Florida estate, and scoured the former president’s home, making off with boxes and boxes of documents. Later reports emerged that Trump may have held on to highly sensitive classified materials relating to the nation’s nuclear program and will be accused of violating the Espionage Act. Democrats cheered the FBI raid while Trump supporters accused the Justice Department of engaging in a partisan witch hunt.
