There is literally zero reason to trust the mainstream media, whatsoever. It’s sad that that’s the way it is now, but that is the way it is now.

The MSM has an agenda, which is to side with the left and push false narratives daily.

Trending: Pro-Trump Lawyer Drops Huge ‘Q’ Hint, Crowd Goes Wild

CBS’s “60 Minutes” deceptively edited an exchange that left-wing reporter Sharyn Alfonsi had with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) two weeks ago about the way the Sunshine State has rolled out its vaccination program.

In the clip, Alfonsi suggested that Publix, the largest grocery store chain in Florida, had engaged in a pay-to-play scheme with DeSantis where they donated money to his campaign in exchange for him awarding a contract to the grocery store chain to host vaccinations.

The following text, which was most of DeSantis’s response to the reporter, in BOLD, is what the network edited out…

Ron DeSantis: —that, that’s a fake narrative. So, first of all, when we did, the first pharmacies that had it were CVS and Walgreens. And they had a long term care mission. So they were going to the long term care facilities. They got vaccine in the middle of December, they started going to the long term care facilities the third week of December to do LTCs. So that was their mission. That was very important. And we trusted them to do that. As we got into January, we wanted to expand the distribution points. So yes, you had the counties, you had some drive through sites, you had hospitals that were doing a lot, but we wanted to get it into communities more. So we reached out to other retail pharmacies — Publix, Walmart — obviously CVS and Walgreens had to finish that mission. And we said, we’re going to use you as soon as you’re done with that. For the Publix, they were the first one to raise their hand, say they were ready to go. And you know what, we did it on a trial basis. I had three counties. I actually showed up that weekend and talked to seniors across four different Publix. How was the experience? Is this good? Should you think this is a way to go? And it was 100% positive. So we expanded it, and then folks liked it. And I can tell you, if you look at a place like Palm Beach County, they were kind of struggling at first in terms of the senior numbers. I went, I met with the county mayor. I met with the administrator. I met with all the folks in Palm Beach County, and I said, “Here’s some of the options: we can do more drive-through sites, we can give more to hospitals, we can do the Publix, we can do this.” They calculated that 90% of their seniors live within a mile and a half of a Publix. And they said, “We think that would be the easiest thing for our residents.” So, we did that, and what ended up happening was, you had 65 Publix in Palm Beach. Palm Beach is one of the biggest counties, one of the most elderly counties, we’ve done almost 75% of the seniors in Palm Beach, and the reason is because you have the strong retail footprint. So our way has been multifaceted. It has worked. And we’re also now very much expanding CVS and Walgreens, now that they’ve completed the long term care mission.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
