North Carolina Senator Richard Burr, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, sold off up to $1.5-million of his own stocks in February, shortly before hosting a private meeting with wealthy constituents where he detailed to them the potential impacts of the pandemic. Republican Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler sold up to $3.1-million in stocks she jointly held with her husband, Jeff Sprecher, Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, just before the stock market went into freefall. On the other side of the aisle, Senator Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, sold off up to $6-million in stocks.

Two GOP Senators were allegedly caught selling off millions worth of stocks after taking part in a “closed-door Senate-only meeting forecasting the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”

False Claims Still Being Spread about the Capitol Riot

February 22, 2021 Glen Greenwald 2

The pattern of calling the Capitol incident an armed insurrection is a gross mischaracterization of what actually happened. False narratives are being used to militarize Washington, DC. Both parties are still exploiting it for a new domestic War on Terror. And the FBI is on the prowl for so-called dissidents.
