Today is September 17 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion.

1.Pelosi slams GOP as a ‘cult’ while traveling abroad in United Kingdom
Fox News – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Republicans while traveling abroad in the United Kingdom Thursday, saying that they are bad for America and members of a “cult.”
“I say to my Republican friends and I do have some,” Pelosi said at an event in Cambridge, England, prompting laughter from the audience. “Take back your party. You’re the Grand Old Party of America, you’ve done wonderful things for our country. You now have been hijacked by a cult that is just not good for our country.”
Pelosi continued, “Take back your party, do not let it continue to be dominated by those who want to suppress the vote because they have no positive message to win.”

DML: The Wicked Witch of the West knows we took back our country, but then the Democrats stole it from us with the help of China. So lets stop pretending as if there is no unity on the side of conservatives. As for the GOP — they are dead — the GOP is not the party it used to be. The GOP is filled with losers like Mitt Romney and Liz Chaney. The new GOP is the MAGA Party and we have 73 million LEGITIMATE voters. The tide will change back in 2022, even with the cheating.
2.Facebook Employees Flag Drug Cartels and Human Traffickers. The Company’s Response Is Weak, Documents Show.
WSJ – In January, a former cop turned Facebook Inc. investigator posted an all-staff memo on the company’s internal message board. It began “Happy 2021 to everyone!!” and then proceeded to detail a new set of what he called “learnings.” The biggest one: A Mexican drug cartel was using Facebook to recruit, train and pay hit men.
The behavior was shocking and in clear violation of Facebook’s rules. But the company didn’t stop the cartel from posting on Facebook or Instagram, the company’s photo-sharing site.
Scores of internal Facebook documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show employees raising alarms about how its platforms are used in some developing countries, where its user base is already huge and expanding. They also show the company’s response, which in many instances is inadequate or nothing at all.
Employees flagged that human traffickers in the Middle East used the site to lure women into abusive employment situations in which they were treated like slaves or forced to perform sex work. They warned that armed groups in Ethiopia used the site to incite violence against ethnic minorities. They sent alerts to their bosses on organ selling, pornography and government action against political dissent, according to the documents.
Facebook removes some pages, though many more operate openly, according to the documents.
DML- It appears the WSJ is doing a slow cook of Facebook, and I hope the social media company gets burned in the process. This is the second day in a row where Facebook is being highlighted negatively by the Journal. The “documents” they are referring to appear to put Facebook in a bad light, again, which comes as no shocker to me. The radical liars at FB gave me a huge warning yesterday — I am on the cusp of being kicked off. They’ll allow drug cartels to post, not worrying about how it hurts our society, but the low life employees who work the “community standards” deleted my recent podcast with Dr. Kardaras. The podcast covered the psychological dangers of masking and virtual learning, but FB says it is “misinformation” that could cause PHYSICAL HARM to people. Maybe they mean a school shooting? Absolutely correct, these kids who sit in front of a screen all day become all f*cked up. Facebook is a hell house for hiring scumbag geeks. I will cover this on my podcast today.
3.Sears is shutting its last store in Illinois, its home state
CNBC – The last Sears department store located in the retailer’s home state of Illinois is getting ready to close its doors for good.
The shop, located in Simon Property Group’s Woodfield Mall, is scheduled to shutter on Nov. 14, the company confirmed to CNBC.
A spokesman for the department store chain’s parent company, Transformco, said it will look for ways to revive the space with another tenant because it also manages the real estate.
DML – Remember the good ole’ days when stores like Sears, JC Penny, and Woolworths were around. Back when you didn’t have a smart phone, Facebook and Amazon. Back when you went shopping on the weekend, then grabbed dinner and a movie at the theater. Back then kids played in the street. Back then wearing a mask was never thought of unless you were painting a room or a car. The country has lost its soul. If I was president I would focus on getting our mojo back. It’s not impossible, but without an effort we are destined to become robots. We have a president who is trying to destroy everything in his path. Example of this is #4 below.
4. The Biden White House is covering up the border chaos, restricting drones
A reporter for Fox News posted the following message on Twitter: “NEW: We’ve learned that the FAA just implemented a two week TFR (Temporary Flight Restrictions) over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX, meaning we can no longer fly our FOX drone over it to show images of the thousands of migrants. FAA says “special security reason”.”
He later tweeted: “[email protected]
has been covering the border nonstop for almost 7 months now, we use the drone constantly, and it has never been an issue. We have reached out to the FAA to ask for clarification on why this TFR was implemented. We haven’t heard back yet. Will update if/when we do.”
He followed up again: “The Border Patrol requested the temporary flight restriction due to drones interfering with law enforcement flights on the border. As with any temporary flight restriction, media is able to call the FAA to make requests to operate in the area.”@FoxNews

DML: As I noted on my Facebook LIVE last night, the border is about to become ten times worse than you know it to be today. I will discuss this on my podcast today. My Facebook LIVE from last night is below.
5.FDA Panel to Weigh Covid-19 Booster Shots as Health Officials Debate Need
WSJ -The Biden administration’s push to introduce widespread Covid-19 vaccine boosters faces a test as a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel meets to weigh evidence on the extra shots, a topic that has divided federal health officials.
The outside panel of about 20 scientific advisers is set to review information Friday about the Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE vaccine’s declining protection against Covid-19 over time and on how people tolerated additional doses. It will hear presentations from Pfizer, which has asked regulators to clear booster shots for people 16 years and older, and the FDA, which this week said all the shots cleared for use in the U.S. remain effective without boosters. The panel will also consider contrasting scientific data about the extra shots.
Given how divisive the topic of boosters has become within the federal government and among public-health experts—and the limited conclusive data available publicly—it is unclear how the committee will vote.
One possible outcome of the meeting could be for the panel to recommend booster shots only for certain high-risk groups, such as healthcare workers or people 65 and older, according to people familiar with the matter.
DML – Boosters? Although it’s not yet available to everyone already fully vaccinated, those who are immunocompromised and are 18 years of age or older are eligible for a third dose right now. You may want to listen to my guest Saturday on The Dennis Michael Lynch Podcast. His mother, 69, died last week after taking the booster shot.
MY PARTING WORDS: Facebook’s threat to kick me off the platform is a warning sign that I will not ignore. They’ve done this to me countless times over the years but never pulled the trigger as I would get my lawyer involved in most cases. I have NEVER posted fake news. But now it’s different in the sense that my popularity is going into overdrive, my lawyer doesn’t stand a chance. The DML NEWS APP is constantly in the top 50 for news app downloaded at Apple Apps. The Dennis Michael Lynch Podcast is consistently in the top 40, competing with other names that have massive marketing budgets, I spend $0.
My Facebook LIVES are among the most popular on Facebook. For example, my Facebook LIVE video a few weeks ago about Joe Biden was shared more than 40,000 times and grabbed 1.4M plays. I am a threat to the false narratives out there about Covid, the border, Biden, and the elections. That said, if I lose Facebook, my news business and podcast will survive because of the DML NEWS APP. But the days of me offering great discounts on DML CBD are done. Without Facebook, our ability to do massive bulk sales is over. Therefore, I am breaking the rules here. I had no intention of doing another BOGO until January because it’s harvest season. We just do not have the inventory or margins to give another BOGO. But screw it, my concerns of not getting you the best CBD for the best dollar is too important. Especially now when a strong immune system is paramount. Therefore, for the remainder of September, expecting to be kicked off of Facebook because I will NOT stop posting the truth, I am offering a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE (BOGO) for most of the DML CBD products on DMLCBD.com. As noted, we had no plans of running another BOGO until January, but I don’t think we ever get there to be honest — Facebook will shut my lights out before then I am sure. So, I highly suggest you jump in now. If you are a new customer, trust me when I say you do NOT want to miss the BOGO sales as they help drive down the prices for you during the year. If you are an existing customer you should load up. In addition to Facebook, it is harvest season and our inventory is always tight from now until Christmas. Be smart. Go to DMLcbd.com now.
