Article Icon 1Florida Grand Jury Releases Epstein Records

The transcripts of a 2006 grand jury investigation into sex trafficking and rape allegations of late millionaire and financier Jeffrey Epstein were released by a Florida judge on Monday.

According to the transcripts, Florida prosecutors knew Jeffrey Epstein sexually assaulted teenage girls two years before they cut a plea deal—long criticized as too lenient—and a missed opportunity to imprison him a decade earlier.

The release came as a surprise since there was a scheduled hearing next week over unsealing the graphic testimony the judge called “sexually deviant, disgusting, and criminal.

A law that took effect on Monday created an exemption to the standard that Florida grand jury transcripts be kept secret forever.

Article Icon 1Crack-down on Rampant Card Skimming

The U.S. Secret Service teamed up with local law enforcement in Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa in a first-of-its-kind sweep of 472 businesses looking for illegal skimming devices. You can see a ride-along video here.

The joint operation prevented $3.9 million in losses from electronic funds and nabbed 13 skimming devices, often found in ATMs, gas stations, and grocery stores.

Officials warned consumers of these types of fraud and offered tips on how to spot the info-stealing gadgets. Skimmers fit over the original card reader and almost perfectly blend in.

Article Icon 1Florida Students Make “Substantial Gains”

According to state standardized test scores released on Monday, a majority of Florida students in grades 3-10 showed a 4% year-over-year improvement in all key academic subjects.

The Florida Department of Education released scores from FAST, a series of standardized exams taken by students in grades 3 through high school.

Education Commissioner Manny Diaz praised the “notable” and “substantial gains” made by public school students.

Math scores, which in recent years suffered the most due to the COVID pandemic, improved from last year but still lagged from pre-pandemic levels.

I’m medical scientist Clint Winters!

If you are using Ozempic, know someone who does, or are considering it, you need to read this to the very bottom. 

This is GREED in the purest form. 

Ozempic is taking the world by storm for its ability to lower blood sugar and help with weight loss.

But it’s expensive and comes with terrible side effects.

I’m talking over 5,000 overdoses in 2023 and countless deaths. 

Which leads me to this BOMBSHELL.

This all comes after a whistleblower testimony

During Ozempic testing, it was discovered that a natural alternative had the SAME powerful effects without side effects.

… And it could be produced at 1/10th the cost.

This research was SUPPOSED to be reported to the general public.

But it wasn’t…

It was buried, much like the addiction rate during the opioid epidemic.

Why? Simply to protect BILLIONS in profit.

… And that is why I am writing you today.

>>> Here is an UNCENSORED report about a natural alkaloid that has “drug-like” blood sugar & fat loss success without side effects.
