not covered media events

In today’s fast-paced media landscape, numerous pivotal stories often go unnoticed amidst dominant headlines. Last week, several such significant events and developments, which have the potential to shape our global discourse, were overshadowed by more mainstream narratives. From geopolitical tensions to domestic concerns, these underreported stories provide insights into the intricacies of our ever-evolving world. It’s essential to shed light on these events to foster a well-informed public and ensure a holistic understanding of our current affairs. Let’s delve into these overlooked headlines.

#1 Senator Rand Paul asserts compelling reasons for legal action against Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Senator Rand Paul has claimed to possess “bombshell revelations” against Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former chief medical adviser to the White House. During a Fox Business interview, Paul cited emails that allegedly show Dr. Fauci acknowledging the possibility that the COVID-19 virus was the result of gain-of-function research and may have emerged from the Wuhan lab. Paul contends that Dr. Fauci bypassed the safety committee that should have reviewed such research. The Kentucky Senator is confident that this revelation will lead to Fauci’s downfall. Paul has consistently criticized Dr. Fauci, referencing reports that suggest the virus might have originated from a lab in China. Previously, in a 2021 Senate hearing, Paul questioned Fauci about the gain-of-function research funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Dr. Fauci rebutted Paul’s claims, asserting that Paul didn’t know what he was talking about. Paul further expressed that Dr. Fauci should face jail time regarding the origins of COVID-19. Fauci has dismissed the accusations, finding them baseless and illogical.

#2 Videos of Iranian officials chanting anti-US slogans surface after a $6 Billion aid package from Biden.

#3 CIA analyst Larry Johnson says Hamas weapons are 100% funded by the US; whether the source is Ukraine, Palestine, or Afghanistan is unknown.

#4 Senator Lindsey Graham suggests U.S. action against Iran, despite unclear evidence linking them to Israeli attacks.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) issued a stern warning to Iran, cautioning against further escalating the conflict in Israel. This comes after Hamas, which the U.S. recognizes as a terrorist organization, initiated a significant attack on Israel leading to a declaration of war by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The conflict has resulted in over 3,600 casualties. Graham, speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, emphasized that if Iran-backed Hezbollah, an ally of Hamas, launches a considerable attack on Israel, he would view it as an existential threat to Israel. He also stated his intent to introduce a resolution in the U.S. Senate for military action against Iran in partnership with Israel, aiming to eliminate Iran’s role in the oil business. This is in response to the belief that a significant portion of Hamas and Hezbollah’s funding comes from Iran. If Hezbollah intensifies its actions against Israel, Graham believes it would be due to Iran’s directives, placing Iran in direct opposition with both the U.S. and Israel.

#5 EU warns Elon Musk with potential expulsion in a recent letter.

The European Union’s (EU) recent warning to Elon Musk concerning the alleged spread of disinformation on his platform, X (previously known as Twitter), has raised eyebrows among free speech advocates. The EU’s intervention comes shortly after the Digital Services Act, which governs online content in the EU, was introduced. Critics argue that the potential penalties, which include fines amounting to 6% of X’s revenues or even a complete platform blackout within the EU, could be seen as an aggressive move to curb freedom of expression.

While the commissioner overseeing the act, Thierry Breton, cites the spread of false information as the main concern, skeptics question whether this could be a guise to control narratives. The fact that platforms like Facebook, Google, and TikTok are compliant with the EU’s voluntary code of practice, while X remains independent, raises further speculations about potential targeted censorship.

#6 Biden drained strategic oil reserves during midterms in order to lower gas prices, which are now predicted to hit record highs.

Amidst the conflict between Israel and Hamas which has caused a surge in oil prices, President Biden’s decision to drain the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to its lowest level in four decades has become a point of contention. Global oil prices have been affected by the Middle East crisis, leading to an increase in the Brent crude and U.S. WTI indices. Analysts fear that if the conflict escalates, a significant portion of global oil supply could be jeopardized.

The SPR, created for emergency situations, has been lowered to a level not seen since September 1983. Since his inauguration, President Biden has authorized the release of approximately 260 million barrels from the SPR to tackle high fuel prices experienced in late 2021 and mid 2022. While the administration is working on refilling the reserve, critics, including Republican leaders, believe that this has left the U.S. susceptible to supply shocks.

The SPR’s purpose was to serve as an emergency oil supply, and some experts think that using it to regulate prices might be unwise, especially given the current administration’s stance on domestic oil production. There have been calls to investigate if the SPR releases have compromised national security indirectly. The reserve, which has a total capacity of 714 million barrels, is only supposed to be utilized during severe domestic supply shortages or in case of sabotage or natural disasters. In recent history, the SPR was used during the Libyan civil war in 2011, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the first Gulf War in the early 1990s.

The White House has yet to comment on the issue.

#8 Amid Israel-Hamas conflict concerns, US extends $200 million in aid to support Ukraine

The Pentagon announced a new military aid package for Ukraine, worth up to $200 million. This marks the 48th tranche of assistance provided to Eastern Europe. The package includes 155mm and 105mm artillery rounds, ammunition for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), AIM-9M air defense missiles, and counter-drone systems. This aid demonstrates the US’s commitment to support Ukraine against Russian aggression. The supplies will come from current US stockpiles and will be dispatched promptly. The Biden administration has urged Congress to replenish funds for Ukraine’s support. As of the beginning of October, the US had $5.4 billion ready for distribution and another $1.6 billion designated to strengthen its own reserves. However, there’s been a delay in Congress, following a political upheaval that saw the removal of Speaker Kevin McCarthy. In total, Congress has sanctioned about $113 billion in aid for Ukraine, with over $70 billion assigned for security assistance. The Biden administration had also requested an additional $24 billion in August. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, along with representatives from about 50 countries, convened for a Ukraine Defense Contact Group meeting to coordinate arms support for Kyiv. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky voiced his support during this meeting.
