There's a Huge Update on This BioLab Story...
"So the story emerged a few weeks ago and there was a chronology to it Bio labs in Ukraine story starts to pop First of course like every good left this they said well anyone talking to access anything Compared to so once they say conspiracy theory I'm like oh my gosh something's definitely there Maybe a conspiracy but it's not a theory if the left says so So I'm like let me start looking into this So I do some homework turns out the stories in fact accurate that there are bio labs in Ukraine Then I'm told that if you dare ask the question about these bio labs potentially producing dangerous materials and even worse my gosh bioweapons if you ask that you will definitely be called a conspiracy theorist which said to me now's the time to double down and ask even more questions about this So the national pulse Natalie winners and Raheem kassam turns out they did a little digging about this Probably did the digging for the same reasons I do digging on stories because when the left freaks out again you can almost be guaranteed the story's true So first on one specific angle Jim queue up for me cut 6 I was wondering why the Biden administration first was so eager to make the story about bio the bio labs existence at all in Ukraine go away Forget the hunter angle for a second I'm going to get to that in a second That's obviously critical But I was like what's the problem Well it turns out Tucker Carlson did some digging too Spoke to some sources And as it turns out there are bio labs and bioweapons facilities around the world And one of the reasons your taxpayer dollars are funding some of it is because of this Jim play cut 6 Why exactly are we paying for bio labs in Ukraine of all places How long has this been going on And what's the purpose of it So he started poking around to find out We did We just spoke to someone who knows the answer to this question someone with direct firsthand knowledge of this topic It turns out that our government has for some time funded biolabs in Ukraine that do among other things research on yes biological weapons This is not a conspiracy theory It's true So why is the U.S. government doing this In Ukraine the answer because no one wants to do bioweapons research in this country It's too dangerous and it's too unpopular For decades the U.S. government worked on bioweapons at places like fort Dietrich and suburban Maryland or underground at the army's dugway proving ground outside Salt Lake City But after a series of accidents and controversies the government decided to move bioweapons research offshore Ukraine among other countries was a perfect place to relocate Because Ukraine is not a democracy the Ukrainian government can host all the bioweapons research at once There's nothing ordinary Ukrainians can do about

"Any man who knew a woman as a child gain a position of power over her and then once she became of age got into a relationship with her. That is all i will sell. It seems as though they are happy. I do not want new. Add to the any any pain may marry me experience from judgments on her. And i actually don't like an eighteen year age difference. Take us or leave. It like that really is not a big deal to me. It's just the dynamic of him knowing her as a child that makes me a bit a bit worried. But what how do you feel about. So that's a good thing that you have. Because i never really thought about that honestly never thought about being. This was her step. Grandfather saw her as a child. Growing up in now is married to her. I didn't see like that. But i do see the kind of twisted -ness of that now but so when i first heard it. It was like salt lake city. I remember that was the preview clip of of the whole season. It was like that was the big news of maria's married to her step grandfather. And i was like ill i mean i was like this is this is not like normal but like i guess. Her grandmother told her step grandfather and mary. That hey when i pass away i want you to marry one of my girls because they will treat you right and mary was the one to get the to get the marriage and even at the reunion. Andy asked her. Whoa shouldn't your mom been necks and then being the source. Buy with her mom and mary now that she got the inheritance in that she got the man but knowing that at the reunion last season mary was got very motion about the criticism of their relationship and my heart torture after that but they all sleep in the same bed. They haven't had sex in recent years. So i feel bad for mary. I truly do i girl and a guy needs to get in some point i dislike. I genuinely love each other. And i just think it's a business. It's a business. I love you type of thing. But it's a huge red flag for me just as a woman watching this. A huge red flag for me is that when she was like we didn't have on our wedding night. Thank god thank god. I was on my period and like we didn't have sex for two weeks. That is never a good sign. I feel that you're like oh. Thank god i didn't have to have sex with my husband on my wedding night. Like i am a bit concerned for that woman. Then you know just like. I said i like you said you know. I do think that the criticism of her marriage for a lot of people is really inappropriate. And we don't know the whole story. We have like a very very limited picture of what's going on and i think that a huge part of her storyline. This season is going to be her opening up a lot more about this but yes so she she is married to him and she inherited her grandma's church and she's the pastor there which is where we meet her sort of in this episode. She's like the co pat. Hearn was his name seniors patrick senior. But you're in the church in actually. I want to put a point into this. So i'm not really respecting liked about robert senior after union lessees in mary's. Why is that a lot of times people in the church. it depends on what's nomination year. Like a part of but they oftentimes can be very dismissive and vary among women are not allowed to reach this level of pastoral care in the church. And he said that like maria's equal in the church in that's not as popular in a lot of other churches is are really like that. He said that that may marry cry. But young yes for sure. And so mary. Last season was in a season-long battle with the jentzsch. Shaw and jan is like honestly. Last season was sort of the main character. I feel the franchise and was causing all of the drama. She is married to coach coach. Shreve coach shaw. So yeah and so. She is married to him and he is the assistant football coach for school in utah. I believe luca okay. And he's gone all the time and she owned this huge house which we come to find out this season she did not own she was wrenching and she would throw giant parties at the shasha lay at. I mean at jan is the definition of excess. Like every time you saw her she had. She has three or four different assistant every time you saw her. She's had her hair and makeup done. She's plastic surgery all over like she is wearing dressed to the nines every single time you see her. Never see her. In sweats or anything like that on the show and she is was a huge source of drama last season so she was fighting with mary at the beginning and she was talking poorly about meredith one of the other housewives and her marriage behind her back spreading rumors saying that. She thought that mary was seeing someone on the side. And all of this really came to a head at the end of the season when they all went to vegas together and jen like physically.

"We'll get into that. Maybe we should actually stars like going over these women and their storylines from last season. Which i just found out. I have all my roommates. And i have a couple of friends who are like you. Who love housewives who follow everybody social media and they said that my friend cameron told me that this show was originally not supposed to be housewives. It was supposed to be a show about women who lived in salt lake city. Who owned their own business. Which i thought was really interesting. And that makes sense that all of these women are such powerful business women who have so much going on for them or so much seemingly going on for them. Maybe businesses elderly people. But that was so. You're right i. That was so interesting because then you have that. I think that's the reason that you have all of these release march interesting. Multifaceted women on the cast. Is this usually the way that the cast. Like the cast. Usually a strong on different franchises. Yeah the cast on. All the different franchises are like super dynamic. Typically as women who just have something going for themselves like like or how about businesses or just the affluent in the area that they're in so that's typically where we see the housewives succeed at and kind of where we get most of the women in most of the women. They come from like housewife casting. I believe to my best recollection starts off as one housewife and like they kind of the producers spread that area with people who the one housewife who they say. Oh this person will be a great fit for the show. Who else would you. Who else would you think would be a great fit. And that's actually how we have had their on this season. Because lisa got talked to the producer and then lisa gave how there's there lisa gave had this information to the producers. And so that's kind of how that sort of thing we typically get women like this but salt lake city was actually announced at bravo. Con back win. Bravo conference happened. I believe in two thousand so bravo con. We're all the bravo. Celebs like bravo liberties. They go and they meet and they hang out. It's like this huge like three day. Weekend festival of like bravo so basically like It's like a comecon for bravo addicts. So they see all their favorite like real housewives and like their shows and they do like meeting breeds and housewives can sail their fragrances. Or whatever they're selling and then. They do like kimber at this time. We're doing like a real housewives of atlanta producers. Talk or at this time. We're doing real housewives of new york. They're going to sit down and they're gonna talk and so it was like a three day festival weekend if you're a bravo hollick get to see all your brother liberties than anyone. That's on bravo show is called a bravo liberty. So yeah oh i see. This is why. I'm like learning so much already. I feel unqualified via on this podcast. Even though like re watched and binged the whole first season to be able to give like a dynamic recap okay we really should probably get to these women so you brought up mary who we should probably start with. We met mary in the premiere episode at gen. Shaw's huge party. Mary is famously married to her step grandfather spicy.

"A green card. Well several icy members were expelled from the organisation. These bribes ultimately weren't considered criminal by a us federal court however salt lake city's actions were obliged on the olympics reputation of excellence friendship and respect although some claim that this behavior wasn't an anomaly which brings us to conspiracy theory number to every city since the nineteen eighty-four olympics in los angeles has bribe the ioc to host the games when los angeles earned two hundred and thirty three million dollars in profit from the olympics. It proved that hosting the games wasn't just good publicity. It could revitalize the city's economy with the stakes that high some cities were willing to fight dirty the sloc's campaign to bhai the olympics came. After they lost nagano japan. Salt lake believe their city was far more suited to host the games but some claim that the ifc was reluctant to vote for an american city because atlanta georgia was hosting the summer games in nineteen ninety six. The international olympic committee wanted the games to be a global unifying event. If america held both events in a row they might see more powerful than other countries it would further politicise the games but others claim. The reason was more nefarious. The committee had been paid for choosing nagano. it seemed to be common knowledge amongst bid committees that nagano head out spent the competition. One member of the sloc claimed that quote while we were giving out salt water taffy and cowboy hats. They were giving out computers. Investigators looked into this claim to see if it had merit. They found that lake. Salt lake city nagano had flown. Ioc members first class to or the facilities but that trip was far more extravagant than what the americans planned sixty two out of one hundred and three ioc members and their families were flown to naga. Oh they were. Put up any luxurious hot spring resort and showered in gifts then in nineteen ninety-one all the members of the international olympic committee traveled to birmingham england to vote on the location of the nineteen ninety eight winter games before the meeting took place. Nagano's sent a troop one thousand dancers and acrobats to dazzle the committee in birmingham. A celebrity chef prepared a lavish meal of expensive sushi carried in on miniature boats. All wash down with expensive sake. Another massive force behind nagano's campaign was a businessman named yoshiaki. suit sumi. He was a tycoon who owned many railroads and ski resorts throughout japan. If nagano won the bid he would undoubtedly benefit from the necessary facilities and infrastructure to do his part to me raised millions of dollars to help the ioc build an olympic museum in switzerland but his office claimed the timing of this donation. Had nothing to do with nagano's bid he maintained that he and other japanese corporations donated nearly twenty million dollars to the project shortly before they voted sheer coincidence. Publicly nagano said they spent eighteen million dollars in their winter. Olympic bid about forty percent came from public funds but investigators estimated the number was more like sixty six million dollars although we may never know the real number shortly after nagano won the bid. Their committee burned over ninety volumes of financial records when investigators demanded to know why this information was destroyed. The former vice secretary general.

"On the surface. The united states foreign corrupt practices act of nineteen. Seventy seven should have applied to the games. Which makes it illegal for. Americans to pay foreign officials in exchange for a certain business considerations. The problem was the law. Only apply to specific entities like governments and legally defined public international organizations. The inc was neither in. Welsh is ruling. The judge said quote. I have never seen a criminal case brought to trial that was so devoid of criminal intent or evil purpose and quote. The elsie was privately funded by corporate sponsorship which meant public funds hadn't been used to make those bribes in fact welsh and johnson's actions had actually helped the state of utah by bringing in one hundred million dollars of revenue. The judge believed the real scandal was how much money than government wasted prosecuting. The two men in the eyes of salt lake city residents. They were heroes. The fact is the sloc did provide gifts to members of the ioc in an effort to exert influence. Now it only did. They wire hundreds of thousands of dollars. They paid college tuition for voters children and sponsored their green cards at the same time. Their actions weren't illegal in court. Tom welsh and david. Johnson's defense was that no crime had been committed and the judge agreed as true. We should also consider the fact that salt lake city won the two thousand two winter olympics by nearly forty votes. It's possible they would have won the bid even without the gifts even.

They hope this opportunity would turn their town into a global tourist destination. Salt lake city was a prime location for the winter games.

This leads us to conspiracy. Theory number one the s. l. o.

Vx around this time. He received an unexpected piece of mail. A draft letter addressed to a young woman named sonia. A samba miss. A samba was from the african country of cameroon and attended the american university in washington. Dc she was also a recipient of a scholarship program. Run by salt lake olympic officials in this letter. The committee informed ms a samba that her scholarship was being terminated. Due to quote the current budget structure. She was to receive a final payment for over ten thousand dollars and then her financial aid would end. The letter was dated soon after utah had won the bid for the two thousand two winter. Games van oker founded especially strange that the sloc ended the scholarship program so abruptly not to mention why they'd been paying miss a samba. In the first place he went directly to the committee for answers. The sloc's communications director offered to give an interview with katie vx. He assured van oker that this relationship wasn't improper at all. The organization launched the small scholarship program to provide educational opportunities to students from developing nations. Like cameroon it was a charitable initiative. But when van oker looked closer. That story didn't check out miss. A samba wasn't from a family that struggled financially her father. Rene samba was a successful surgeon in cameroon. He was also a voting member of the international olympic committee. Then ochre didn't think this was a coincidence.

City actually made two hundred thirty three million dollars. That's over a half a billion dollars today for the first time hosting the olympics was profitable endeavor which is precisely when the competition between cities grew fears. Not only would your own town be immortalized on the world stage but it could walk away with a windfall to boot. One of the most aggressive competitors was salt lake city's olympic organizing committee or the s. l. o. See they hope that not only would hosting the winter games be profitable but it could establish their city as a vibrant winter tourist destination on paper. Salt lake city was a strong contender. It already had several arenas and facilities within an hour drive of the city centre. Meaning they wouldn't have to build many more. The airport was only fifteen minute drive from the city. So olympic terrorists wouldn't have daunting commutes to hotels or events and unlike many winter sport towns they had a relatively robust infrastructure salt lake could easily handle the influx of thousands of olympic spectators and athletes but the s. l. o. c. was unable to win a bid despite decades of trying in nineteen ninety one. They lost to the japanese city of nagano by only four. I o c. Votes nagano didn't have as many facilities as salt lake city nor did it have a transportation system they could handle the olympic crowds. The decision baffled. Many for the next bid cycle the sloc decided to woo olympic voters by treating them like royalty. Their hospitality went above and beyond the norm invited many. Ioc members to come to salt lake city and two or their facilities in person. The committee sent them first class plane tickets and put them up in luxurious hotels. I ac- members found their hotel rooms filled with expensive champagne and wine which was surprising. Considering salt lake city's deep ties to the church of jesus christ of latter day saints which forbids alcohol consumption. In fact the region had a number of extremely confusing and complex alcohol regulations. Bought the sloc assured the i ioc that. If they won the olympics they would make some changes they were seemingly willing to tweaks laws if it meant winning the bid the schmoozing apparently paid off in nineteen ninety five.

Five million or more than one hundred twenty million dollars today similarly when montreal hosted the summer olympics in nineteen seventy six. it left the city one point. Five billion dollars in debt much of that was spent on constructing a stadium the locals now call the big o o w e e. The city made their last payment on that debt. Over thirty years later in two thousand nine. These massive construction projects are usually paid for by increased taxes on citizens montreal paid for the bego primarily by adding a special tax on tobacco in the decades since the olympics. They've tried to put the stadium to us by hosting a slew of sporting events. But it's not nearly enough to justify its cost. Montreal wasn't an isolated incident either all over the world former olympic facilities were abandoned ski jumps and bobsled courses were left to rot in the elements following the nineteen eighty four winter olympics. In what was then known as yugoslavia. It's worth pointing out though that. Not all venues go to waste.

They're actually two of my favorite things about great salt lake. Because i know it's alive by the smells and the birds that i see and the bugs that sometimes by me or that fly out my nose now. She says that life is slowly dying. As the lake gets smaller and shallower water levels are projected to hit a one hundred seventy year low this year. That's partly due to the diversion of river. Water to nearby towns and farms instead of the lake. Now drought any. Evaporation fuelled by climate. Change are making things even worse and less. Water is bad news for everything that lives there.

They're like great salt lake's trees powerhouses. They produce a lot of oxygen. Those microbial lights for the first time ever are going to be of water and without water. They'll die leaving masses of brian flies and brine shrimp without food. Moving up the food chain. Those flies and shrimp are a crucial food source for millions of resident and migratory birds like pelicans and eared greens over ninety.

Area that surrounded by mountains and start cities like two hundred thousand people, but then the whole metropolitan area that goes pretty far south in a bit north. That's like another. One another million that you'd have to that. Yeah It's very spread out city. So, yeah, I mean, but the other thing we're lucky about. Is that Were like literally like half a block away from like a natural foods store and steps that we can get everything you need like wherever we are, we don't you know so? You don't have a car. Yeah, we don't have a car here, so we can walk everywhere for the most part. Destined friendly city, but the sidewalks so he can't walk. Drivers can be astle. Inattention in like we'll run you over doing right on red, so they're that aside we can make it working pretty ideal right now. Given the circumstances. There's definitely definitely worst places you could be stuck in a mountainous basin of. Natural Foods. Exactly look friends and family in New York are like Oh my God. We can't go outside. See Narrow. Outside, but if you go outside, you're GONNA run into people so freaking out here so and is not the greenest city you know so Yeah I can just be Bihar I know like some people who haven't even left their apartment for a month and I'm just like. Wow, it's just that sounds terrible..
