First Glitches Emerge In COVID-Vax Rollout; Alaska Health Worker Suffers 'Serious Allergic Reaction' - Zero Hedge
The person, who had no known drug allergies, was still in the hospital on Wednesday morning under observation, according to the report. It is unknown whether they suffer from any other types of allergies. The Alaska resident's reaction was reportedly similar to anaphylactic reactions two heal workers in Britain experience after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine last week - both of whom have recovered. Of note, they both had a history of severe allergies. One, a 49-year-old woman, is allergic to eggs (which Pfizer says are not in their vaccine). The other, a 40-year-old woman is allergic to several different medications. Both routinely carry EpiPenn-like devices in case of reactions.

Intelligence Agencies Have Information Suggesting China Interfered in 2020 Presidential Election Against Trump - Big League Politics
US intelligence agencies reportedly possess intelligence that suggest China sought to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, pushing a narrative through state-controlled media organizations that tried to smear Donald Trump as a white supremacist.
The so-called intelligence community is notoriously loathe to provide evidence backing up assertions with great implications, but One America News Network reported Wednesday that career officials of federal intelligence agencies support Trump administration Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s suspicions of Chinese interference. Other federal employees are trying to sweep the intelligence suggesting Chinese interference under the rug.
Ratcliffe has informed liberal elements of the intelligence community that he won’t sign off on reports that ignore evidence of Chinese interference in the election.

“This is a big deal. Ratcliffe has drawn a line in the sand on China and not backing down. Even some of the careers agree with him that the ‘Russia Russia Russia’ crowd is downplaying the China threat,” a senior national security official reportedly informed OANN.

President Trump: Senate Hearing Shows Krebs Was Wrong, Senators Found Rampant Election Fraud, Which Krebs Falsely Denied - OANN
President Trump said the Senate Homeland Security Committee found widespread election-machine glitches, out of state and illegal voting and the use of phony ballots took place.
Krebs falsely claimed the 2020 election was “the most secure ever.”
However, the latest audits show Dominion Voting Machines were pre-set to switch ballots and were remotely controlled from abroad. Sen. Rand Paul also called out Krebs by saying his statement only covered safety from foreign election meddling and not domestic irregularities.
Trump: Chris Krebs was totally excoriated and proven wrong at the Senate Hearing on the Fraudulent 2020 Election. Massive FRAUD took place with machines, people voting from out of state, illegals, dead people, no signatures—and so much more!

Byrne video: Operation Snowglobe - video
Overstock.com Founder and former CEO, Patrick Byrne was interviewed by Ann Vandersteel on Monday and he told her, "I know what's in the Durham Report and I'm gonna say it here: I bribed Hillary Clinton with $18 million. I facilitated a bribe for Hillary Clinton on January 14th, 2016, right here in this town [DC]. On behalf of the FBI, I – they came to me around December 1st, 2015, they told me Hillary had accepted a bribe from Turkey for $20 million."
PATRICK BYRNE: They told me that I would be working for a group in New York; FBI agents who had authorization to set Hillary Clinton up in a sting. They asked me to facilitate a bribe for her. An $18 million bribe from another government.
The bagman from that other government, I was to befriend and I was to get that person 10 minutes alone in a room with Hillary Clinton. I did. On January 14th, 2016, Hillary Clinton was in this town and she accepted an $18 million bribe. Attorney General William Barr knows this – Durham – this is what's behind it all.
I facilitated a bribe and she took a second bribe for $18 million and I worked with the FBI as I did that. They're deeply involved with this. They came to me three days later and told me I had to forget about it and forget that it ever happened.
That way, Barack Obama's gonna manage Hillary Clinton for the 8 years she's President and then, she's gonna step down, and Michelle's gonna run. And Patrick, that's the plan.'
That came out of the lips of a Federal Agent. It was confirmed to me this spring, the Durham Investigation has located – that plan was called Operation Snowglobe. That was Brennan and Obama's name for it. A snowglobe.
