    Biden Administration FAA changes definition of Astronaut to deny William Shatner the Qualification.
    Shatner passed the Kármán line by going over 66 miles up, and that is more than 15 miles higher than the previous FAA 50 mile mark for astronaut wings.
    Billionaire Jeff Bezos who runs Blue Origin is to be denied as well, however billionaire Richard Branson who of Virgin Galactic who only went to 53 miles was awarded FAA's astronaut wings by the Biden Administration. No word yet on Elon Musk's status, other than that he's the world's richest man worth $228 billion, which is greater than Bezos's mere $191 billion second place ranking.

    Then September 30, the investigation of the Independent Commission against Corruption (ICAC), suggested charges against former Liberal MP Daryl Maguire for giving false evidence and for serious corruption within Canterbury council involving planning processes. Gladys Berejiklian has been secretly dating Daryl Maguire for years, a fact that came out last year. Phone taps suggest she knew about the planning corruption, and if she did then she broke the law at a minimum by failing to report the conduct. She's also under investigation for a charge of "breach of public trust" between 2012 and 2018 related to her failure to report her relationship with Maguire.

    Someone put the two together, and ended up with the post.

    A fact checker says
    "No, an Australian politician did not quit because Pfizer was paying her"

    What I read, is a little different-
    "In a press conference on Tuesday Palmer dropped a bomb on the NSW Liberals and the corrupt role of a political lobbyist being paid tens of millions of dollars by Pfizer and Astra Zeneca. The same lobbyist, says Palmer, controls the Liberal Party in Sydney and is using the threat of the Independent Commission Against Corruption’s (ICAC) inquiries into Gladys Berejiklian to pull her strings and push the vaccines."
    “I’d say the premier is lying to them,” Palmer shot back. “And I’d say that she’s under an ICAC inquiry, but a particular lobbyist in Sydney controls the Liberal Party in Sydney and told her the only way she gets out of that inquiry is if she pushes the double jab, and his clients are Astra Zeneca and his clients are Pfizer.”

    The only "science" that's been rigidly followed throughout this pandemic is political science.
