** More Covid Data – “Zero deceased of 18–49 years of age with no underlying morbidities,” the Israel Ministry of Health (MOH) said in response to a formal request from an attorney.
** The great student loan boondoggle is about to come to a screeching halt, after a three-year “emergency pause” which redirected tens of billions of dollars away from mandatory student loan repayment to other forms of discretionary spending. The “Fiscal Responsibility Act”, prohibits the Biden Administration from extending the pause on student loan repayments in place since March 2020, even if it does not block the Administration’s student loan forgiveness plan, which would wipe out up to $20,000 in federal loans per borrower and is currently being weighed by the Supreme Court (the plan was announced last year but has not yet implemented). This likely would mean a restart of payments after August 2023.
** CBS aired a piece about Hunter Biden’s corrupt activities. They’re not turning against Biden because he’s corrupt. They’re turning against him because he can’t be re-elected.

The alleged evidence of cheating had emerged from a nesting doll of ed-tech black boxes.
