IRS Admits Prison Inmates Received More Than $1 BILLION in COVID-19 Stimulus Checks; Fauci, Other COVID ‘Authoritarians’ Will Face Accountability in ’23, and other C-Virus related stories

Prison inmates received more than $1 billion in COVID-19 stimulus checks, IRS admits:
Over 1.1 million COVID-19 stimulus checks, totaling over $1.3 billion, were sent out to incarcerated people across the United States, data from the Internal Revenue Service revealed.
The $1.3 billion figure includes economic impact payments and does not account for recovery rebate credits, another form of COVID-19 relief given during the pandemic, according to a letter the IRS sent to Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) obtained by the Washington Examiner. Some 163,000 recipients were serving life sentences.
"It’s outrageous that those who inflicted pain on a family or community by committing a crime received a single dime from the government during the pandemic. If anything, the funds should have gone to the victims who would have been better served," Bacon said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
Of the checks doled out, 156,000 were sent to prisoners at the federal level and 982,000 to prisoners at the state level, per the IRS. Stimulus money was given to prisoners via checks, direct deposits, and debit cards.
During the crafting of the third COVID-19 relief legislation, Bacon and other Republicans sought to add language to prevent stimulus money from getting delivered to prisoners. A slew of Republicans had ripped Democrats for rejecting an amendment to the American Rescue Plan to cut off economic impact payments from prisoners. --->READ MORE HERE

Fauci, Other COVID ‘Authoritarians’ Will Face Accountability in ’23, BlazeTV’s Deace Says:
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s year-end retirement doesn’t mean he will avoid congressional oversight and accountability, said Steve Deace, author of “Faucian Bargain: The Most Powerful and Dangerous Bureaucrat in American History.”
On Aug. 22, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or NIAID, and chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, announced he would retire from the government in December.
“There will be meaningful investigations that will uncover meaningful information that especially has to answer the question, after the Obama administration ordered the ending, the ceasing, of gain-of-function research in 2014, by whose authority did it begin again? Where did it start again?” Deace told “The Daily Signal Podcast.”
Deace said the lasting lesson from Fauci’s tenure and “Faucism” is that “never again can this kind of singular power be placed in an unelected official or an agency that’s unelected and not directly accountable to the people. Period, end of sentence.”
The host of “The Steve Deace Show” on BlazeTV anticipates Republicans will control at least one house of Congress in 2023, and that the origins of COVID-19 and how agencies such as the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be held accountable. --->READ MORE HERE
