John Stossel says classifying genuine secrets can keep us safe. Overclassifying makes us less safe.
We’ve heard about the top secret documents found at the homes of Donald Trump and Joe Biden, which the media called a national security crisis. Bunk. The truth is, Stossel says, the word classified usually means very little.
Government classifies three things every second. “A lot of top secrets are nothing of the kind,” historian Matthew Connelly says. Many classified “secrets” are nonsense or embarrassing proof of government incompetence. More from Stossel.

Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo tells Official ACLJ that we need to find out what kind of information the Chinese Communist Party is attempting to gather by sending a spy balloon adrift over the United States.
“They’re testing us. They’re seeing what the response will be,” Pompeo says. “Next time, it will be something bigger.” Here’s more with Pompeo and host Jordan Sekulow.

ACLJ Senior Counsel for Global Affairs and former CIA Director Mike Pompeo tells Jay Sekulow that Adam Schiff was the primary deliverer of the hoax, which suggested that President Trump colluded with the Russians.
Pompeo says in his recently released book, Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America I Love, that when he was with the CIA and Schiff was senior member of the House Intelligence Committee, they would send stuff to him and it would all come out in the press. “He had a very sensitive position and then he used that position to go out and tell lies to the American people that he had to have known weren’t true about the Russian hoax.” More from ACLJ.
Official ACLJ’s Jordan Sekulow reports that for the first time in history, the United States will send a patriot missile battery to Ukraine. The system is part of a massive $1.85 billion weapons package the Department of Defense introduced earlier this week.
The announcement, Sekulow says, coincided with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to the White House. Sekulow welcomes former CIA chief Mike Pompeo to weigh in on the significance of it all.
JFK’s assassination was an event that changed America’s history forever. Now that Joe Biden declassified documents about what happened on that dreadful day, we have questions.
Do these documents actually hint at the CIA’s involvement in his death? Robert Kennedy, Jr. just might think so. What secret phone call was made right before the shooting, and how does Majestic 12 play into all of this?

Josh Sigurdson reports that the Spanish court has summoned former CIA chief Mike Pompeo to explain the U.S. government’s plot to assassinate Julian Assange. The distressing news of the plot was first reported by The Guardian in the UK last September.
The court is moving to clarify claims that the CIA sought out ways to kidnap and/or assassinate Julian Assange after he released “Vault 7,” revealing the level of corruption in government. Sigurdson says President Trump had a favorable personal relationship with Assange, while Pompeo and Jeff Sessions both claimed one of their No. 1 priorities was to “get Assange.” Here’s more from World Alternative Media.
In a comprehensive probe into the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic, Sky News Australia investigative reporter Sharri Markson reveals what really happened in Wuhan, China, in the days leading up to the first coronavirus cases.
Her investigation begins with the Wuhan Military Games in 2019, when several athletes from 100 countries fell ill with what later would be discovered as an early strain of coronavirus. More than 9,000 athletes attended the games and officials were immediately alarmed at the potential of a super-spreader virus. Says David Asher, former State Department Covid investigator, “It is suspicious. We see indications in our own data, that NIH has, that there was Covid circulating in the United States certainly as early as December (2019), possibly earlier than that.”
Markson says no one was ever tested at the games, but Chinese activist and the country’s most famous defector to the U.S., Wei Jingsheng, knew something was wrong. He believes China took the opportunity to spread the virus at the military games, because the event was flooded with foreigners from across the world. “I told Dimon (fellow activist Dimon Lui) of the Chinese government using some strange weapons,” he says, “including biological weapons, because I knew they were doing experiments of that sort.”
Former U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that if there was no one to blame, the Chinese government would not have shutdown Wuhan. “They would not have silenced doctors, scientists and journalists, and disappearing some of them,” he says. In the following report, Markson brings us more details, including analysis with President Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other officials.
