Reporter who broke Clinton-Lynch tarmac story and received ‘significant’ death threats found dead

Published

The body of a Birmingham, Alabama journalist who broke the story about the controversial 2016 tarmac meeting in Phoenix between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch was found on Saturday morning of an ‘apparent suicide,’ according to AL.com.

45-year-old Christopher Sign – a news anchor at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, was discovered at around 8 a.m. by Hoover police and fire personnel, according to the report.

“Our deepest sympathy is shared with Christopher’s loving family and close friends. We have lost a revered colleague who’s indelible imprint will serve forever as a hallmark of decency, honesty and journalist integrity. We can only hope to carry on his legacy. May his memory be for blessing,” said ABC 33/40 Vice President and General Manager Eric Land in a statement.

The tarmac bombshell, which gave the appearance that Bill Clinton was privately pleading his wife’s email case after then-FBI James Comey launched a new investigation, is thought to have contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016.

Sign, meanwhile, had complained last year of receiving ‘significant’ death threats, having his credit cards hacked, and creating code-words to use with his children.

Sign, an Emmy-award winning reporter, made national headlines over the June 27, 2016 tarmac meeting at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport amid the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized server. The meeting between Clinton and Lynch occurred days before Comey announced that the bureau would not press charges against Hillary – instead changing internal language from “gross negligence” to “extremely careless.”

“Gross negligence” is a legal term of art in criminal law often associated with recklessness. According to Black’s Law Dictionary, gross negligence is A severe degree of negligence taken as reckless disregard,” and “Blatant indifference to one’s legal duty, other’s safety, or their rights. “Extremely careless,” on the other hand, is not a legal term of art.

In addition to the “gross negligence” –> “extremely careless” edit (performed by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok), the FBI removed a key justification for elevating Clinton’s actions to the standard of “gross negligence” – that being the “sheer volume” of classified material on Clinton’s server. In the original draft, the “sheer volume” of material “supports an inference that the participants were grossly negligent in their handling of that information.”

Also removed from Comey’s statement were all references to the Intelligence Community’s involvement in investigating Clinton’s private email server, as well as changing the language to downgrade the probability that Clinton’s server was hacked by hostile actors, changing their language from “reasonably likely” to “possible” – an edit which eliminated yet another justification for the phrase “Gross negligence.” To put it another way, “reasonably likely” means the probability of a hack due to Clinton’s negligence is above 50 percent, whereas the hack simply being “possible” is any probability above zero. 

In short, Bill Clinton’s tarmac meeting appears to have had quite the effect on his wife’s investigation, despite the fact that she still lost. And now the guy who broke the story is dead.

Mask mandate may relax in Miami-Dade schools

Published

The mask mandate for students in some South Florida schools could be eased by the end of October as local rates of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations continue to fall, officials said.

The number of students needing to quarantine in Miami-Dade County public schools has dropped significantly since school started in August, school Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said Wednesday.

He said the decision would be based on the latest COVID-19 data and the advice of a task force of local doctors advising the district.

The easing of the mask policy would give parents an opt-out provision for their children, he said.

A parental opt out was the original back-to-school plan in Miami. But the delta variant spread rapidly across Florida during the summer, causing a spike in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

The district, which is the state’s largest, joined a handful of other districts — representing about half of Florida’s public school students — in adopting mask requirements with an opt-out only for medical reasons.

That defied an order by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose administration directed schools to allow parents to decide whether children wore masks in school.

In Miami-Dade last week, less than 1,000 of the district’s 330,000 students were required to quarantine, which was an all-time low, Carvalho said. He attributed the success to the district’s COVID-19 protocols, including mask mandates and quarantine policies.

The school mask issue landed in court, and the state began imposing financial penalties on districts defying the state mandate. The penalties have included docking salaries of local school board members who voted to impose student mask mandates.

Patent approved: U.S. government could mandate social credit score and tracking app to implement forced COVID-19 vaccinations

A U.S. patent approved August 31, 2021, reveals technology used to track people in order to pinpoint those allegedly more likely to spread COVID-19 and to identify unvaccinated individuals so they can be injected with the experimental shots.

The patent was filed by Israeli patent attorneys Dr. Gal Ehrlich and Maier Fenster of Ehrlich & Fenster.

The technology used in the patent analyzes data collected by smartphones, government-mandated phone apps, intelligence agencies, public cameras, ATM cameras, private business cameras and other sources.

Essentially, people will be given “scores” based on vaccination status, mask-wearing, behavior, movement, socialization and other factors.

Electronic devices communicating with each other will determine whether or not someone is a “super spreader” or a “non-super spreader” based on the various elements.

As seen in the diagram below, the collection of surveillance technologies will send data to be analyzed in order to determine a “score” that places the person into a group.

Each group is ranked so the government can prioritize who to vaccinate next.

Another diagram shows a web of individuals being tracked while in public.

According to the document, “the government may order the citizens to install a dedicated application on their smartphones (or other smart devices like tablets, smartwatches, smart glasses, etc.) to help the government with the logistics of the vaccination procedures.”

“The government (or other body) provides the public with such dedicated smart devices,” it continues. “In some embodiments, the app and/or the smart device is configured to inform on the user’s location at all times and to communicate with adjacent smart devices (via Bluetooth for example( to assess the interactions between users, for example, vicinity between users, movement of users, etc.)”

The paper says existing technology could also be used to track people, such as Android and iPhone cell phone software.

Geolocation data will be monitored using cellphones, social media, credit card usage, IP addresses, facial recognition technology found in surveillance cameras, ATM’s, and private surveillance cameras in stores, buildings and houses.

Providing examples of tracking a subject’s behavior, the patent says it could determine if a person is “wearing a mask” by “analyzing images taken during calls” or if a person is “washing his hands” by “analyzing sounds of water running or movement by a smartwatch.”

Some experts, such as Dr. Robert Young and Dr. Vladimir Zev Zelenko, suggest graphene oxide put into the human body via “vaccination” could interact with satellites or cell towers in order to deliver information about the subject.

“What I’m suggesting is the inoculation is a guise to literally put in metallic materials, that are potentially magnetic, to interact with satellites or cell towers with the human body,” Dr. Robert Young said. “In other words, rather than using a cell phone you can use your body and your cell phone for remotely testing, let’s say, blood sugars or blood pressure or oxygen levels.  And this is what the patent actually suggests that Pfizer took out, that was awarded just last month, 31 August of this year.”

“This was the conclusion that I came to: that it is the very first patent that shows up in a list of about 18,500 for the purpose of contact tracing of, I believe, all vaccinated humans worldwide who will be or are now connected to the Internet of Things,” he told Stew Peters in September.

Around the 40:00 minute mark in the following interview, Dr. Zelenko describes the COVID tracking system in the patent.

“It describes a technology that already exists in the vaccines to measure your internal physiological data and transmit that information with your location to a third party,” he said.
