Pennsylvania Senate candidate Kathy Barnette on Saturday released a DD-214 showing the initial months of her active duty Army service, amid scrutiny of her past statements that she served 10 years in the Armed Forces.
Barnette posted the DD-214 on Twitter, after nearly a week of questions from reporters trying to vet her record and asking for that specific document, which raised questions over whether the surging candidate was ready for a general election in November.
The DD-214 shows the first few months of her military career in 1990 — which would be basic training and advanced individual training for her military occupational specialty (MOS), which at that time was administrative specialist.

Retired Army Col. Kurt Schlicter, who is backing Barnette’s opponent David McCormick in the race, told Breitbart News after viewing the DD-214 that Barnette released, “There’s nothing that jumps out at me that’s unusual about this.”
Barnette only last week released her NGB-22, which is the equivalent of a DD-214, but for Army National Guard soldiers.
The NGB-22 showed she joined the Army in 1990, and three years later joined the Alabama Army National Guard, serving from 1993 to 1998. Another document she released showed that she was honorably discharged from the Army Reserve in 2000, after a total of 10 years of service.
The Army also first confirmed to Breitbart News that Barnette had served in the Army National Guard from 1993 through 1998, and the Army Reserve from 1998 through 2000. The Army said any additional records would have to be obtained from the National Archive Records Administration since she had left the Army more than 15 years ago.
However, more questions had arisen, even after Barnette released her NGB-22, when she confirmed in some interviews that she did have a DD-214 for her first three years in the active duty Army but did not say whether she would release it.
The Senate primary race is statistically a three way tie between the Trump endorsed-candidate, Mehmet Oz, McCormick, and Barnette.
The primary is on Tuesday.
BIDEN: Dr. Jill Will ‘Get Mad’ At Me For Having Irish Heritage, ‘It’s A Problem Sometimes’
President Joe Biden revealed on Tuesday that his wife, Dr. First Lady Jill Biden, has an issue with him being of Irish descent and will “get mad” at him when he mentions his heritage.
He then stated that he was “only joking” and “teasing.”
“You know, you were telling the story, Jill was gonna get mad at me for reminding [unintelligible], I happen to be Irish,” Biden said. “It’s a problem sometimes with Jill, but I’m only joking.”
“No, I’m, I’m teasing,” Biden insisted.

Joe Biden frequently references his Irish heritage in public.
In 2020, when a BBC reporter demanded he answer a question, Biden replied, “The BBC? I’m Irish.”

The Irish Post reported in March 2021 that Biden is only five-eighths Irish, not full-blooded Irish.
According to the Irish Post, “By heritage, Joe Biden is roughly five-eighths Irish. All of his mother’s family traces back to Ireland with ancestors named Arthurs, Blewitt, Boyle, Roche, Scanlon and Stanton accompanying her Finnegan name. The last one-eighth comes from his father’s side, which contributed the Hanafee name.”
Following his remarks on Tuesday, Biden did not explain why Dr. Jill would be “mad” at him for being Irish. Nor did he explain why “joking’ or “teasing” about the subject would be humorous.
UK Warns Gay, Bisexual Men of Monkeypox Outbreak ‘Spread in Sexual Networks’
A UK health body has warned gay and bisexual men to be alert for monkeypox, a disease that they say has beeng spreading “in sexual networks” in the country.
Since the start of the month, British authorities have located seven cases of monkeypox, an infectious disease usually found in central and West Africa. The first case was found in an individual who had recently travelled to Nigeria. Two more patients, who live in the same household, were identified a week later, but are thought to be unconnected to the first.
However, a further four individuals who have been infected with monkeypox in the UK are all gay or bisexual men, leading Mateo Prochazka, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the UK Health Security Agency, to declare that it is being “spread in sexual networks.” None of these individuals travelled to a country where monkeypox is endemic.
Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical advisor for the UKHSA, described the outbreak as being “rare and unusual,” and that they were “rapdily investigating” the source of the most recent infections.”
“The evidence suggests that there may be transmission of the monkeypox virus in the community, spread by close contact,” Hopkins said.
“We are particularly urging men who are gay and bisexual to be aware of any unusual rashes or lesions and to contact a sexual health service without delay.”
Monkeypox expresses itself as fevers, headaches, muscle aches, and swollen lymph nodes as early symptoms. “A rash can develop, often beginning on the face, then spreading to other parts of the body, including the genitals,” the UKHSA says.
“The rash changes and goes through different stages, and can look like chickenpox or syphilis, before finally forming a scab, which later falls off.”
However, monkeypox itself does not necessarily seem to be spread via sexual contact itself, with Professor Keith Neal of the University of Nottingham instead suggesting that it is instead a result of “the close contact associated with sexual intercourse.”
He added that more work needs to be done to see “whether the virus is found in semen” before labeling it as truly sexually transmitted.
Bill Gates: 50-60 Year Olds Likely Need ‘Ongoing Vaccination’ With COVID Boosters ‘Every 6 Months’
Microsoft co-founder and vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates said that people aged between 50 and 60 will need “ongoing vaccination” with COVID-19 “booster” injections at least “every 6 months” during an appearance on CNN with host Anderson Cooper.
After Cooper asked the liberal billionaire if he was quadruple vaxxed, to which he responded in the affirmative, Gates said “for people over, you know, 50 or 60, uh, they’ll probably have to be boosted every 6 months until we get even better vaccines.”
Cooper asked the quadruple vaxxed billionaire about his recent post-quadruple vaccination COVID-19 infection, and wondered if or when Gates was going to take another dose of the vaccine.
“When do you get boosted again?” Cooper asked Gates. “I mean, now that you’ve had [COVID-19], you know, I’ve had it around the same time. I’ve only gotten three shots total, only been boosted once. I guess we have immunity for a little while, er, but, when do you decide to get boosted again?”
“An infection where you get a high viral load would be like vaccination,” Gates said. “Uh, but you know, to be safe, every 6 months, you’re probably going to be vaccinated. As we get more data, they might even make that shorter for people, say 60 or over 70, where the duration seems to be a bit lower.”
Gates then added that “so we’re in for ongoing vaccination to stay absolutely safe.”

Gates on Twitter announced last week announced that he had been infected with COVID-19 despite being quadruple-vaccinated, Valiant News previously reported.
“I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’m experiencing mild symptoms and am following the experts’ advice by isolating until I’m healthy again,” Gates tweeted Wednesday.
“I’m fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care,” Gates wrote on Twitter, disabling replies to his tweet.
