🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
💉 Trending Politics ran a remarkable story yesterday headlined, “REVEALED: Man Who Drowned On Obama Property Was Their Personal Chef.”
Yesterday, longtime B. Hussein Obama household chef and fitness enthusiast Tafari Campbell, 45, died mysteriously, suddenly, and unexpectedly in sprawling, shallow Edgartown Great Pond near the Obama Estate in Martha’s Vineyard.
Tafari was out for a night of solo paddleboarding but somehow managed to drown.
According to Trending Politics, state police said the Obamas were reportedly not at the residence when Tafari drowned.
An unidentified person who was reportedly paddleboarding near Tafari called into 911 on Sunday evening reporting the chef had gone underwater after a short struggle to surface, and never came back up. Immediately a massive operation mobilized involving a vast flotilla of government agencies, including Edgartown Fire and all other Martha’s Vineyard fire departments, local police, State police patrols, the Underwater Recovery Unit, Air Wing, the Dukes County Sheriff’s Department, the Massachusetts Environmental Police (whatever that is), and the United States Coast Guard.
Note: if you must fall off your paddle board, the place to do it is obviously Martha’s Vineyard.
Despite having every rescue and recovery agency involved in the search, it still took them until 10 AM the next morning to find him. Massachusetts State Police divers found Tafari’s body about 100 feet from shore submerged in about eight feet of water.
Chef Campbell’s Instagram page, hashtagged “#fitchef,” includes clips of his workouts, including Olympic swimming — for times. In his videos, Tafari practices backstroke and freestyle, records a 40-minute-long swim workout with his Apple watch, and benches an impressive 315 pounds. Ironically, from social media posts it appears Tafari accomplished a long-standing goal of becoming a confident swimmer around five years ago.
Tafari, who originally cooked for the Bushes when George W. was in the White House, became the Obama’s White House chef, and then left the White House to go to Martha’s Vineyard after Obama left office.
Tafari leaves his wife Sherise and their twin boys, Xavier and Savin, ages currently unknown.
There are tons of fascinating theories blowing around social media. What we do know is: no official cause of death has been confirmed, but a press release by one of the law enforcement agencies was tagged as a “drowning” on its website, so most outlets are running with that non-diagnosis.
But I would bet Joe Biden’s favorite transsexual that the Obamas required all their staff to get the jabs.
💉 TMZ ran a curious story yesterday headlined, “Tori Kelly Rushed To Hospital After Collapsing — Doctors Find Blood Clots.”
Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, producer, and former American Idol Tori Kelly, 30, is currently hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai in West Hollywood where she is being urgently treated for blood clots “around her vital organs,” legs, and lungs. A source close to the story told TMZ the situation is “really serious.”
Not just one clot. Multiple clots. Spread all around her body. What causes something like that in a young, healthy person? Bad clotting genetics? Hmm?
According to various media sources, the popular singer was doing fine, dining out with friends in downtown L.A. Sunday night, when her heart suddenly and unexpectedly started beating really fast. Witnesses told TMZ that Tori quickly passed out — and then she was “out for a while.” Her friends rushed Tori to the hospital, where she remains.
Tori won two Grammys in 2019 for Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song, the Billboard Women in Music Breakthrough Artist Award in 2015, and just released a new album last year.
We pray for Tori’s immediate and miraculous healing. So you can get an idea of her work, here is Tori playing a lovely acoustic version of “So Will I (100 Billion X).”
💉 Former “New Amsterdam” star Tyler Labine, 45, shared in early July he spent 3 days in the hospital due to ‘potentially fatal blood clots’ in his intestine and liver. He had no warning it was coming. “Sometimes it’s a Tuesday and you’re walking around with a tummy ache so you try to sleep it off,” Tyler explained in an Instagram post.
“Then sometimes you wake up on a (Wednesday) with a stomach ache so bad you decide to go to the ER at your local hospital,” he continued. “And then sometimes your tummy ache turns out to be a potentially fatal blood clot in your intestines and liver and you have to spend the next 3 days in the hospital trying not to die. Just sometimes.”
The actor recently posted he was recovering slowly, but doing “alright.”
With this many celebrities suffering from sudden and unexpected blood clots this week, how many regular folks do you suppose are running into the same problem?
💉 Miss South India 2019, model, and media star Shivani Sen Dar, 36, died suddenly and unexpectedly on July 10th from an “epileptic seizure.”
Epilepsy used to be something you lived with. Nowadays, apparently you die suddenly with it. There wasn’t a lot more information available about miss Sen Dar’s death.
💉 Last week, the European Journal of Heart Failure published a new study titled, “Sex-specific differences in myocardial injury incidence after COVID-19 mRNA-1273 Booster Vaccination.”
Between December 2021 and February 2022, the researchers studied 777 jabbed healthcare workers, measuring their troponin levels — a marker for cardiac injury — and performing cardiac tests on those whose levels were elevated. Among the 777 participants, which were 70% female, they found elevated troponin levels in 40 people and and 22 cases of actual myocardial injury.
Twenty-two out of 777 is about 1 case in 35 having vaccine-induced heart damage. The researchers were quick to point out that most of the cardiac injuries were minor, but of course, they only measured at two months post-injection. And of course, heart injuries are permanent; they never heal.
The researchers’ conclusion was: “mRNA-1273 vaccine-associated myocardial injury was more common than previously thought, being mild and transient, and more frequent in women versus men.”
More common. Much more common. Here’s the link to the study. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ejhf.2978
🔥 In an update on yesterday’s Israel story, the Jewish Chronicle ran a story headlined, “Knesset passes first judicial reform bill into law as protests flare.”
Despite liberal members walking out of the final vote in a huff, conservatives in the Knesset (Israel’s Congress) passed a reform law yesterday stopping the courts from using a “reasonableness” standard to vacate conservative laws. Despite hysterical predictions by Biden and the compliant corporate media, that’s all the reform does, eliminates the reasonableness test.
Israel’s four largest, totally-independent, and absolutely not controlled by anyone else newspapers all worked together to protest the decision by jointly publishing all-black front covers, with headlines using the same words announcing it was “a black day for democracy”:
Good thing Israel, like the U.S., has an independent media, which after all is also essential for democracy, just as essential as obscure court rules. It would indeed be a very black day for democracy if Israel’s newspapers essentially became puppetized mouthpieces for the American deep state or something.
Meanwhile, America’s independent newspapers ironically urged Israel’s Supreme Court to strike down the new law prohibiting use of the “reasonableness standard” by finding that law to be “unreasonable.” In other words, they want the Court to use the very standard it was just prohibited from using to strike down the rule banning it. That’s woke logic for you.
Israel’s captured institutions are only beginning to complain about the change, go on strike, and encourage the Supreme Court to go rogue. From the Wall Street Journal this morning:
The Journal also darkly predicted total mayhem following a small procedural change in court standards that seems minor, a little obscure, and somewhat commonsense to most people. But the Journal warned it was a critical inflection point that could doom the country:
The law’s passage marks a pivotal juncture for Israeli society. It presents a decisive moment for thousands of military reservists, who have said they would quit, while business and union leaders have also threatened mass work stoppages.
The Washington Post warned there will be even more protests in Israel and more action from the Biden Administration:
It’s a good thing Prime Minister Netanyahu is healthy and energetic, because he has a lot of problems looming that he needs … Oh wait. He just got a sudden and unexpected pacemaker installed in emergency surgery on Sunday. I forgot.
🚀 Politico ran a revealing story this morning that started with a headline I sort of agree with:
It’s an overlong article mostly reciting personal interest vignettes about Ukrainians dispossessed or displaced by the war, but it ultimately gets around to the point: Ukraine is one of the world’s few so-called “breadbaskets,” and the fact that it is mired in a narrative-breaking military stalemate and is unable to ship its food is a matter that should be of great concern to the world.
For three quarters of the article Politico blamed that nasty warlord, Russian President Vladimir Putin.
But then, deeply buried late in the article, was this remarkable admission: it’s not just Putin. The Europeans don’t want the grain coming overland very much either:
Widespread dumping of Ukrainian grain onto Polish markets has angered Polish farmers, and the presence of thousands of Ukrainian truckers has strained local transportation companies there and in Romania. In June, the European Union expanded a ban on Ukrainian exports of grain to include Poland; at least until September 15, it will be legal only for Ukrainian grain to transit through Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, and Hungary to the ports in those countries.
So the world’s grain is facing a double-whammy: a sea embargo by Russia and a land embargo by the European Union. You wouldn’t know that without reading carefully, though. These embargoes have a good chance of creating a whole lot of suffering. Maybe they should wrap up the Proxy War soon.
👽 Tomorrow, a Congressional subcommittee will hold the first public UFO hearing in Congress featuring government whistleblowers. Yesterday, disgraced former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo interviewed former Clinton Assistant Secretary of Defense Chris Mellon on News Nation. (It’s too bad mandate-happy Chris Cuomo didn’t land a better job after getting fired from CNN. I wonder what he did wrong?)
In the clip, Chris Mellon claimed to have received official briefings on extraterrestrial hardware, saying, “I’ve been told that we have recovered technology that did not originate on this earth by officials in the Department of Defense and by former intelligence officials.”
With respect to C&C UFO fans, my position is that I personally do not believe in aliens. But I do find this quickening trickle of official UFO disclosures to be fascinating. They are doing it for some reason.
🚀 I’d like to hire the thin, neatly dressed, and insanely-strong Ukrainian woman who was helping clear a damaged Odessa church in this accurate, reliable, totally believable, pro-Ukraine Sky News clip. Marvel at her easily carrying over a hundred pounds of dusty bricks in one arm, while holding two large cement blocks in her other hand at the same time!
It’s definitely propaganda. It’s like they have the entire Hollywood props and crisis actor departments over in Ukraine. Wait a minute! Maybe that’s the real reason for the actors and writers strike! The deep state is using them all to make war propaganda.
🔥 The Daily Wire ran a heartwarming story yesterday headlined, “Speaker McCarthy Indicates Republicans Are Moving Toward Impeachment Inquiry Of Biden.”
During an interview with Sean Hannity this week, McCarthy explained the House is moving closer toward an impeachment inquiry against former vice-president Biden, following increasing amounts of evidence that he accepted millions of dollars in bribes from foreign countries.
“This is rising to the level of impeachment inquiry, which provides Congress the strongest power to get the rest of the knowledge and information needed,” McCarthy said, later adding: “I believe we will follow this all the way to the end. And this is going to rise to an impeachment inquiry the way the Constitution tells us to do this. And we have to get the answers to these questions.”
Great timing. Just as Biden is preparing for the 2024 campaign by pivoting away from the Proxy War, he can begin fighting the Impeachment War. It’s probably not a good sign that every single President gets impeached these days, sometimes more than once, but this Biden impeachment would seem to have more substantial, valid reasons than any of the previous cases.
So hang in there. It’s coming.
Have a terrific Tuesday! C&C will return in the morning to refill your daily roundup.
Consider joining with C&C to help move the nation’s needle and change minds. I could use your help getting the truth out and spreading optimism and hope, if you can: https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/-learn-how-to-get-involved–
