CDC Head: FDA Could ‘Streamline’ Omicron Booster Authorization As ‘Much Of The Vaccine’ Is ‘The Same’ | The Daily Wire

I think a slow down, if not a pause, would be a good idea at this point.

On Sunday, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with host Martha Raddatz. During the segment, Raddatz asked Walensky about how quickly the FDA could approve a variant-specific vaccine from Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson and Johnson.

“One of the things about a booster, about a variant-specific booster — I know Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson say they could all do this fairly quickly, within three months, but then you have FDA approval,” Raddatz said. “Is there any world where you can see that moving much faster given we’ve already been through this?”

Walensky said that while she would “have to defer to the FDA” on certain things, the organization is “already in conversations about streamlining the authorization … of an Omicron-specific vaccine, partially because much of the vaccine is actually exactly the same and really it would just be that mRNA code that would have to change.”

“So, those conversations are ongoing and certainly, FDA will move swiftly, and CDC will move swiftly right thereafter,” Walensky added.


I think that’s scary. I think we doing a lot of reacting right now. And reacting very rarely makes for good business decisions long term. And when you’re business is healthcare, that’s especially scary.

I’d rather we slow down a little at this point, instead of speeding up.

But I am not the head of the FDA, unfortunately.

Protests Spread Across Europe

More! More! More!

Tens of thousands protest vaccine mandates, lockdowns across Europe | One America News Network (oann.com)

Spain, The Netherlands, and more.

I love it.


Saturday night, thousands in Barcelona attended a protest against regional Catalonia’s vaccine pass system. In November, the Catalan high court ruled the region’s parliament was allowed to institute a new COVID pass law, which requires proof of vaccination or previous infection to enter restaurants, bars, gyms and other venues.

Now, despite being 80 percent vaccinated, adults in the region are being told if they want to eat out or improve their health at a gym, they must first show government papers proving medical cleanliness to authorities. One man, a professor of Chinese medicine, said there’s so many people who have adverse side effects to the vaccines that it’s morally wrong to force people to get the COVID jab.


Nearby in the Netherlands, protests have once again started up as the government imposes new lockdown measures on the 73 percent vaccinated population. The protests across the region were mostly peaceful, which couldn’t be said for the protests just two weeks before.

When the government first announced a ban on unvaccinated Dutchmen and Dutchwomen entering many public places, riots took over the major cities. The proposed law faced such bitter backlash that parliament decided not to pursue it for the time being, and has instead opted for general curfews on bars and restaurants.

I hope this kind of thing spreads to America. Soon.

Eventually Someone Will, but Clearly the Panic Is Unwarranted

WHO Admits The Truth About Omicron COVID Variant – Nobody Has Died From It (lifezette.com)

The World Health Organization (WHO) has finally admitted that despite all of the hysteria, nobody has died of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The WHO issued a warning stating that it may take several weeks for experts to figure out how infectious this new variant is, and how effective both jabs and other treatments are against it.

“‘We’re going to get the answers that everybody out there needs,” said WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan, according to Daily Mail.

Yes, it’s early. They might change their minds as they learn more. But right now, it appears that we should all remain calm.

What a wonderful idea.

Make Them Pay

Teacher forced to resign after criticizing mask mandates on social media files lawsuit (reclaimthenet.org)

A teacher from South Carolina has filed a lawsuit against the school district board and the superintendent claiming she was forced to resign over a post about mask mandates she made on her personal Facebook account. The lawsuit alleges wrongful termination.

Holly Chapman, a middle school teacher, was an employee of the Berkeley County School District until February this year. She was fired over a video she posted on Facebook criticizing mask mandates.

Ok, so this is a clear First Amendment violation. She is entitled to express her personal opinion, as long as it’s not in the classroom. In fact, many teachers get away with expressing far worse, in the classroom. Of course, they’re expressing the “right kind of opinion” (actually the left kind), so they never get fired.

She posted the video in December 2020. The suit notes that she was not friends with any of her students on Facebook. Besides, she used a pseudonym on her Facebook profile.

She even did it under a pseudonym?

I think the school district is in trouble. If I were them, I would find a way to settle quickly and quietly out of court.

If You Want to Decrease Reliance on Fossil Fuels, Nuclear Is the Only Answer

Sure, there are some places who will have enough room and resources to manage solar. And it may even become a reasonable way for most Americans to power their homes. As long as there are reliable non-solar power sources still on the grid that solar users can take from on cloudy days.

But there are too many things that just can’t be easily converted that way. You’re never getting a battery powered 747 off the ground, for example. And even if you could, how much solar energy would you need to charge those batteries every day? And our energy needs go up every year. We’re increasingly tech and energy reliant.

Therefore: nuclear.

Nuclear Power: Growing Support from Greens, Center-Left | National Review

The past few weeks have seen a radical change in the outlook for nuclear energy. Coincident with the global COP26 conference, major center-left forces have shifted their position from opposition to support. While a year ago French president Emmanuel Macron was calling for cutting the nuclear fraction of France’s electric power from its current 75 percent down to 50 percent (thereby eliminating the world’s only actually decarbonized major electric-power grid), on November 9 he called for “relaunching construction of nuclear reactors in our country

Hopefully, we’ll see more like this. But I have my doubts.

And There’s the ”Additional Information”

CNN Terminates Chris Cuomo ‘Effective Immediately’ Over Scandal | The Daily Wire

So, they suspended him pending review.

“Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense,” CNN said in a statement. “We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately.”

To me, this is the curious bit.

“While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light,” the network added. “Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.”

What information could they possibly have uncovered this quickly that would be worse than what we already know?

Tune in later for more details.

Wow, Knock Me Over With a Feather

Secy. of State Blinken says Iran ‘doesn’t seem to be serious’ about compliance with nuclear deal | One America News Network (oann.com)

Like Claude Rains, I’m shocked!

See the source image

They never had any intention of complying with it. Only a complete fool would have ever thought otherwise.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed the latest round of talks with Iran and Vienna regarding renegotiating the nuclear deal from 2015, which ended due to Iranian officials not taking it seriously.

During a conference on Friday, Blinken said he believes a mutual compliance is necessary moving forward. Blaming the Trump administration for withdrawing from the deal known as the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” back in 2018.

“I think the decision to pull out of the agreement was a disastrous mistake,” Blinken stated.

A disastrous mistake for pulling out of an agreement that gave everything to the other side and that they had no interest in complying with in any case.

Your mind works in mysterious ways.

This was a fool’s bargain.

This Is Clear Evidence That Putin Feels We Have a Weak President

Report: Russia is Planning a Military Offensive Against Ukraine – PJ Media

Now, the Washington Post is reporting specifics of the buildup of Russian forces on the border with Ukraine, identifying four areas of troop concentrations and the potential for Moscow to mass up to 175,000 troops for an offensive that could come as soon as early 2022.

The unclassified U.S. intelligence document obtained by The Post, which includes satellite photos, shows Russian forces massing in four locations. Currently, 50 battlefield tactical groups are deployed, along with “newly arrived” tanks and artillery, according to the document.

While Ukrainian assessments have said Russia has approximately 94,000 troops near the border, the U.S. map puts the number at 70,000 — but it predicts a buildup to as many as 175,000 and describes extensive movement of battalion tactical groups to and from the border “to obfuscate intentions and to create uncertainty.”

Russia has also called up tens of thousands of reservists and its rhetoric toward Ukraine has become increasingly belligerent. This is either one of the biggest military deception operations since World War II, or Putin is deadly serious.

I don’t think it’s a deception. I do think it’s a test. And so far our President is failing miserably. Not surprising. He’s failed miserably at his job from day one.

Three more years of this crap. Ugh.

Trump Fires Back At Report Melania Won’t Return To White House If He Wins In 2024 – ‘Fake News’ (lifezette.com)


Former President Donald Trump is speaking out this week to shoot down reports that his wife Melania will not be returning to the White House in 2024 if he runs for president again and wins. Trump went so far as to rip these reports as “fake news.”

“Is it true that the former First Lady Melania Trump has told you: ‘I’m not going back if you run again?'” Fox News host Brian Kilmeade asked Trump.

“No, that’s not true,” Trump responded, according to Business Insider. “More fake news.”

“She was a great first lady, she did a great job. She loves the people, they love her,” Trump added of his wife. “I see how they love her.”

She’s a private person. And she was attacked pretty mercilessly by the press, despite sticking mostly to the background. I am sure she would prefer to avoid a second round of all of that. Who wouldn’t. But I am also sure that she won’t stay behind, should the need arise.

Oh Great, Now They’re Admitting It

This can’t be good.

Janet Yellen Admits Inflation Shouldn’t Be Labeled ‘Transitory’ | The Daily Wire

“I am ready to retire the word transitory,” Yellen said at an event sponsored by Reuters, as recorded by The New York Times. “I can agree that that hasn’t been an apt description of what we are dealing with.”

“What we don’t want to have develop is a wage-price spiral, in which inflation becomes its own self-reinforcing kind of phenomenon that would become chronic in the U.S. economy — something endemic,” Yellen added while endorsing the Federal Reserve’s decision to taper its aggressive monetary stimulus.

Yes, the inflation death spiral. I’ve spoken of it before. That doesn’t concern me nearly as much as the scary word in her last sentence.


We’ve gone from “transitory”, to “not transitory” and worrying about “endemic” in about 30 seconds.

Treasury Secretaries pick their words more carefully than probably any other Cabinet post. They know that the stock market parses every single thing they say. The stock market is going to react very negatively if she starts using the word “endemic” more frequently.

Call Me When You Can Do This at Room Temperature

They’ve been telling us for about 70 years that reliable fusion generation is “a generation or so away”. The truth is that there are about 100 technological breakthroughs that have to occur to make that possible. We’ve accomplished about 60 of them.

But this is a big one.

Finally, a Fusion Reaction Has Generated More Energy Than Absorbed by The Fuel (sciencealert.com)

For the first time, a fusion reaction has achieved a record 1.3 megajoule energy output – and for the first time, exceeding energy absorbed by the fuel used to trigger it.

Just exceeding doesn’t amount to much. We need to exceed by some pretty significant margins to make it worthwhile. Still, this is huge.

"This result is a historic step forward for inertial confinement fusion research, opening a fundamentally new regime for exploration and the advancement of our critical national security missions. It is also a testament to the innovation, ingenuity, commitment and grit of this team and the many researchers in this field over the decades who have steadfastly pursued this goal," said Kim Budil, director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

"For me, it demonstrates one of the most important roles of the national labs – our relentless commitment to tackling the biggest and most important scientific grand challenges and finding solutions where others might be dissuaded by the obstacles."

One of the other hurdles is getting this to happen at reasonable temperatures. We may never cross that one. But even if we can do it at fission-like temperatures that might be enough to start getting use out of it.

Then, 192 high-powered laser beams are blasted at the hohlraum, where they are converted into X-rays. These X-rays implode the fuel capsule, heating and compressing it to conditions comparable to those in the center of a star – temperatures in excess of 100 million degrees Celsius (180 million Fahrenheit) and pressures greater than 100 billion Earth atmospheres – turning the fuel capsule into a tiny blob of plasma.

How do we contain a large scale reaction occurring at 180 million degrees? We don’t. And if we can’t contain it, we can’t sustain it.

So, this is great news, but there’s still a way to go. Next time someone tells you that fusion is a “generation or so” away, you might actually be able to believe them.

But to do that, we need more people in STEM, and far fewer people worried about whether or not math is racist.

Twitter Is Trying to Kill Us All

Twitter Censors American Heart Association Article on mRNA Vaccines and Cardiac Health – PJ Media

Once again, Twitter decides it knows better than actual experts on the subject. The experts findings are rather disturbing.

I’m already on the fence on booster shots. We already know that a significant percentage of people experience some pretty severe symptoms for a day or two after the shots. We also know that there have been some (not many, given how many vaccines have been given out) people with severe long term reactions to the vaccine, up to and including death.

I’m not sure I want a booster every six months with this going on. Sure, my odds of something bad happening are pretty small. But that’s each time. You’re playing Russian Roulette with a revolver that has 100 chambers and one bullet. Eventually your number is going to come up.

But this study may explain some of what we’ve been seeing.


Dr. Steven R. Gundry of the International Heart and Lung Institute wrote an abstract that raised a concern about mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 potentially raising the inflammatory markers in the blood. Gundry’s group has been conducting a long-term study of the risk for a new Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). Patients in the clinic have received a clinically validated measurement of multiple blood protein biomarkers called the PULS score every 3-6 months for eight years. The study began before the pandemic and has accumulated a significant history for participants.

So, this study has been going on for several years. And what have they found?

An increase in the PULS score means the patient is at increased risk of suffering from a new ACS, an acute illness that impairs blood flow to the heart in the next five years. According to Gundry’s analysis, a PULS test drawn two to ten weeks after the second COVID-19 mRNA dose more than doubled the ACS risk from pre-vaccine levels. The researchers concluded that the mRNA vaccines might dramatically increase inflammation on the cellular lining of the heart and blood vessels and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle. This type of inflammation may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.

ACS stands for Acute Coronary Syndrome.

I’m already at risk for many types of heart ailments due to being diabetic. I don’t really think I want to increase my risk any more.

So, I think I’m off the booster bandwagon until I learn more. I’ll ask my doctor.

Remember That as of Now, There Are No Known Fatalities Due to Omicron

Ireland To Limit Multi-Household Gatherings, Shut Down Nightclubs Over Omicron Concerns | The Daily Wire

There aren’t even that many cases, which makes the first sentence in this piece particularly amusing.

In response to the surging Omicron variant, the Republic of Ireland has announced a wave of new coronavirus restrictions on homes, nightclubs, and restaurants from December 7 — January 9, 2022.

According to the rules recently announced by Taoiseach Micheal Martin, multi-household gatherings should include no more than three households in one home at the same time. Nightclubs will be closed down completely and restaurants and bars will only be allowed to have seating service with parties no bigger than six people during this time as well.

Sky News also reports that “[i]ndoor events such as concerts must operate at 50% capacity.”

I hate this virus. I hate our cowardly reaction to it even more.

Does Manchin Have Any Remaining Friends on the Left on Capitol Hill?

I kind of doubt it.

Senator Manchin Says He'll Vote to End OSHA Vaccine Mandate – PJ Media

Senator Joe Manchin announced he would join all 50 Republicans in the Senate in voting for a resolution of disapproval that would roll back the OSHA vaccine mandate.

The Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows for a majority of Congress to disapprove of any agency rule. Since the CRA vote is in the form of a resolution, only a simple majority is needed in the Senate to pass it.

The CRA would still have to be approved in the House where several Democrats have said they’re considering voting for it. And even if it’s passed by both chambers, Biden would almost certainly veto it.

But it would be a powerful statement to make prior to a Supreme Court ruling on the case.

A very powerful statement.

If There’s Any Justice in the World, This Case Will Be Dismissed

Mom Asks Judge to Dismiss Lawsuit Filed Against Her by Teachers Union (dailysignal.com)

The state affiliate of the National Education Association, the largest teachers union in America, sued Solas, a resident of South Kingstown, which is 30 miles south of Providence, Rhode Island.

The union’s suit, filed in August, came after Solas filed more than 200 requests for public records about the curriculum being taught in her school district and what her kindergarten daughter would learn.

Solas specifically sought information about whether the South Kingstown School District was teaching students critical race theory and gender identity ideology.

Solas is fighting the lawsuit with the help of the Goldwater Institute, a conservative public policy and ligation organization based in Phoenix. Goldwater attorney Jon Riches, representing Solas, asked Wednesday that the Rhode Island Superior Court dismiss the lawsuit.

Parents have a right to know exactly what their children are being taught. When my daughters were being schooled from home during 2020, parents were told we couldn’t watch the Zoom sessions. I politely explained that I would watch the Zooms any time I pleased, and if they had a problem with that they could contact my attorney. No one ever did. In fact, I didn’t really watch any of the Zooms, although I did peek in from time-to-time. It wasn’t so much that I wanted to watch. I wanted them to know that I might watch.

To Be Fair, He Probably Thinks This Is True

Biden Brags After Horrible November Jobs Report: ‘Our Jobs Recovery Is Going Very Strong’ | The Daily Wire

Biden told a press conference:

This year, we can reflect on an extraordinary bit of progress. Our economy is markedly stronger than it was a year ago, and today, the incredible news that our unemployment rate has fallen to 4.2%. At this point in the year, we’re looking at the sharpest one-year decline in unemployment ever. Simply put, America is back to work and our jobs recovery is going very strong. Today’s historic drop in unemployment rate includes dramatic improvements for workers who have often seen higher wages and higher levels of unemployment. Excuse me, higher levels of unemployment — they are seeing higher wages. …

Nothing about the big miss on employment. Nothing about inflation. Nothing about the retail sector losing jobs in November, of all times.

But to be fair, with his declining mental faculties, he probably thinks it really was a great jobs report.

Great, They’ll Be Free to Loot Again

14 California Looters Arrested by Police Have Been Released – PJ Media

Thieves hit 11 Los Angeles area stores that weekend, stealing $338,000 in merchandise. But several of the looters pled poverty and got out, thanks to a California Supreme Court decision that ordered judges in the state to consider a suspect’s ability to pay when setting bail. If you can show you are “indigent” — no visible income or means of support — you get to walk.


But these are just looters, no problem, right?

One of the suspects is charged with murder, while the other is charged with being an accessory to murder. The shooting stemmed from a road rage incident after the victim collided with several other vehicles. The man charged with murder, Efrain Anzures, claims he fired in self-defense.

Nice. Let’s set them all free. More people can get robbed and killed.

‘It’s Inhumane What They’re Doing’: Australian Woman Details Her Experience Inside COVID Camp | The Daily Wire

Now, 26-year-old Hayley Hodgson recently detailed her experience being taken by authorities into the Howard detainment camp, a 2,000 person facility. Hodgson did not even have COVID-19.

Hodgson told UnHeard News that police came to her door and asked if she had a covid test. Hodgson admits she lied and said she had. Here is what happened next, according to Hodgson’s interview with UnHeard News.

“So then the police officers blocked my driveway,” she says.

“I walked out and I said, ‘What’s going on, are you guys testing me for COVID? What’s happening?” They said, ‘No, you’re getting taken away. And you have no choice. You’re going to Howard Springs. You either come with us now, and we’ll put you in the back of the divvy van. Or you can have a choice to get a ‘COVID cab’… I just said, ‘I don’t consent to this. I don’t understand why I can’t just self-isolate at home, like a lot of other people are doing.’ And they just said, ‘We’ve just been told from higher up where to take you. And that’s all that there is.'”

This is just frightening. They’re just rounding up people and herding them off to the concentration camps.

CNN Runs Propaganda Piece on Inflation

CNN Story Says ‘Inflation Can Actually Be Good For Everyday Americans.’ Here’s What CNN Published Two Weeks Ago. | The Daily Wire

CNN is running some serious spin here for the Democrats. Try to imagine them saying the same thing if the Republicans were in charge.

CNN posted an article on its website Wednesday titled “Why inflation can actually be good for everyday Americans and bad for rich people” by CNN senior editor and business writer Allison Morrow. “[O]n the whole,” she writes, “many working-class Americans” will benefit from rising prices caused by the devaluing of the U.S. dollar, “especially those with fixed-rate debt like a 30-year mortgage.”

There’s a lot of nonsense in the piece about wages catching up to inflation, and being able to benefit if you have a fixed rate mortgage, etc. The problem is that there’s a long lag between wages catching up, and sure being able to benefit on the mortgage is nice, but doesn’t help me buy groceries.

Also, it’s stupid to say that this helps the lower or middle classes more, because it’s the affluent who are most likely to benefit from mortgage wins.

Here’s what’s been said about inflation n the past, including by CNN:

Traditionally, economists have called inflation “the cruelest tax,” because it hurts the poor, minorities, and people on a fixed income the worst. CNN has reported this fundamental economic principle numerous times, as recently as two weeks ago.

  • On November 17, CNN published an article titled “The Americans who are getting the worst of the surge in inflation.” which stated that inflation-drive price hikes “disproportionately harm low-income, [b]lack and brown families. If left unaddressed, escalating food costs will not only make it difficult for these families to put holiday meals on the table; such costs will significantly exacerbate longstanding inequities in hunger and nutrition”;
  • In July, a CNN headline stated, “Inflation will hurt low-income Americans for years to come.” Its author, Dana Peterson, wrote that “lower-income families and retirees on fixed incomes will especially feel their buying power erode — not just in the short-term, but for many years to come, further widening the nation’s wealth gap”; and
  • In a May article on CNN.com titled “Everything is getting more expensive. That’s especially bad news for low-income Americans,” Anneken Tappe and Nathaniel Meyersohn wrote, “The inflation spike … has been harder for those at the bottom of the income ladder.”

This was all before they realized how much inflation is hurting the Democrats. CNN can’t have that. Have to run protection for the party of choice.

Why people hate the news media.

Good Question

‘Who Is Making These Ridiculous Decisions’: Chicago Public Schools Blasted For Eliminating Boys And Girls Separate Restrooms | The Daily Wire

So, CPS made this announcement:

The details are frustrating, to say the least.

Some examples of the signs state: “This is a gender-neutral restroom with multiple stalls. It is open to users of any gender identity or expression.” “Men’s +: This restroom has both urinals and stalls. All who feel comfortable are welcome to use this restroom.” “Women’s +: This restroom has stalls. All who feel comfortable are welcome to use this restroom.”

And what if I’m not comfortable with either?

The announcement went over like a lead balloon.

Some comments responding on social media included:

My girls will not feel comfortable sharing a bathroom with boys. Who is making these ridiculous decisions? Who is making sure girls are not harassed or bullied in these stalls? Where can my child get privacy to ensure no boy will try to peek at her while she is in a stall?

This is backwards, not acceptable. What about the girls that have their periods that are already uncomfortable in their [restrooms] now their being subjected to having boys in there too? NO!!!!!

Wow, I guess nobody learned anything from the sexual assaults that took in place in Virginia because of similar policies. My child will never attend a school with such policies that endanger students.

The last comment should hit home the hardest. After what happened in Loudoun County, why would anyone do this? Just how stupid are you?

The Economy Is Going Great, Really!

November Jobs Report Falls Significantly Short Of Expectations In ‘A Huge Miss’ For U.S. Economy | The Daily Wire

The November jobs report that came out on Friday showed poor numbers for the U.S. economy, with growth in new jobs not even reaching 50% of what financial experts had predicted.

Making the news worse, the disastrous jobs numbers arrived before the U.S. government and the mainstream media triggered a panic over the new Omicron variant of the novel coronavirus.

“Nonfarm payrolls increased by just 210,000 for the month,” CNBC reported, noting that the “Dow Jones estimate was for 573,000 new jobs.”


The unemployment rate also fell slightly to 4.2%. The retail sector lost 20,000 jobs last month while transportation and warehousing added 50,000 jobs and professional and business services added 90,000.

The latest job numbers are another issue that the Biden administration has to contend with as polling has shown that the overwhelming majority of Americans are worried about skyrocketing inflation. Some experts have recently warned that Biden’s Build Back Better agenda could further exacerbate inflation problems.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said this week that he expects high inflation to continue well into 2022 and that the U.S. government should stop trying to portray the situation as “transitory.”

And the hits just keep on comin’.

I just can’t wait for more and more inflation and higher unemployment. Oh, and more travel restrictions. All of that will make my job in a travel insurance company sooooo much easier.

More on Biden and Kerry’s Cowardice on China

Senate Dems Blocking Measure To Prohibit Imports Made With Chinese Slave Labor (freebeacon.com)

Now they’ve got Schumer and co. involved also.

This is a disgrace.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, a bill sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) that has long been circulating in Congress and is backed by the human rights community and opponents of China's forced labor camps, was included in a package of 25 amendments to the annual defense authorization bill, according to a list distributed by Senate leadership on Wednesday.

But Democrats excluded the amendment from a vote late Wednesday night, after members of the party privately objected to it, sources told the Free Beacon. Earlier in the evening, Democrats tried to use a procedural mechanism that would have allowed a vote on the act but stripped it from the final authorization bill, according to a hotline memo from Senate leadership.

The pushback from Senate Democrats comes amid efforts by senior Biden administration officials to quietly kill the bill over concerns it will hinder the White House's climate agenda and limit solar panel imports from China.

Solar panels?

The Uyghurs are suffering genocide and slavery and we’re worried about getting our solar panels?

Here’s an idea. Let’s make our solar panels in the United States and tell the Chinese to go to blazes.

How weak can we possibly be? Why should any world leader respect this administration?

I go to a website often where I’m asked the question of whether or not I’m embarrassed that Joe Biden is my President. Heck, I’m embarrassed that Joe Biden and I are the same species.

And they’re playing political games on the whole thing. See if you can follow the twisted logic here.

The anti-slavery act has "been on the list of amendments Senate Democrats proposed the Senate to vote on that the Republicans have been objecting to … so you should ask the Senate Republicans why they're blocking the vote," Schumer spokesman Justin Goodman told the Free Beacon.

But in a floor speech later Wednesday night, Schumer claimed that the anti-slavery amendment was a "poison pill" that couldn't be included in the authorization bill because of arcane procedural requirements.

"If [Rubio's] amendment were on the bill, it would automatically kill the bill, because it would be what's called ‘blue-slipped' in the House, which means any bill that produces revenue must start in the House," Schumer said. "The Rubio amendment is a poison pill in the sense that it blows up the bill."

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act passed the Senate unanimously in July but has stalled in the House. Rubio reintroduced the bill as an amendment to the upcoming National Defense Authorization Act, in an attempt to force the House to finally vote on it.

Democrats blocking a Senate vote on the anti-slavery act "avoids the House having to touch this issue," a senior aide to Rubio told the Free Beacon.

"[House Democratic leadership has] sat on this bill since July anyway, so clearly they don't want to touch it. And this would avoid them having to strip it out … or voting to approve it, which they clearly don't want to do," said the aide.

“We support it in the Senate, but it’s the Republicans fault.”

“We support it in the Senate, but it would be ‘blue slipped’ in the House.”

“We’ve already passed a bill with this in it, and it’s waiting in the House.”

Sounds like Senator Marco Rubio (R=FL) just wants someone to tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-11) to get off her bony a** and bring this to a vote, so he’s trying to put it in a bill that she’ll be required to bring to the floor.

The Problem Is That Too Many People Give In to These Pissant Politicians

And once you start giving them control over your lives, they want more and more.

Cruz: ‘No Pissant Politician … Has The Right Or Legal Authority To Force You’ To Get Vaccinated | The Daily Wire

“The Biden White House mandates have been struck down repeatedly by the courts,” Cruz told reporters on Thursday. “They are blatantly lawless. Joe Biden knows they’re lawless. His lawyers have told him that the vaccine mandates are contrary to law. And Democrats don’t care. They don’t care about medical privacy. They don’t care about individual autonomy. Instead, we have seen in the course of this pandemic, Democrats, being very comfortable with being petty tyrants and decreeing that you must obey their medical mandates.”

Cruz noted he supports vaccines and that both he and his family have been vaccinated against the coronavirus but he “also support[s] individual liberty and individual responsibility.”

“It ought to be your choice as a responsible adult to decide whether to get the COVID vaccine,” Cruz continued. “And you ought to make that discussion, that decision in consultation with your doctor. And no pissant politician — whether a local mayor, or a governor or the President of the United States — has the right or legal authority to force you to make that decision.”

I agree with every single sentence of this. And my family and I are all vaccinated also.

Supply Chain Crisis Leads To Shortage Of Chicken Tenders, Second Chicken Shortage In 2021 | The Daily Wire

According to a report from NBC’s “Today Show,” chicken tenders, which are fillets cut from the breast of a chicken, are in short supply.

Tenders are different from chicken nuggets, which are made from scrap meat from the whole chicken. Because the tenders take more work to produce, they can be harder to find or more costly, experts told “Today.” The average price of a value pack of whole chicken breast tenderloins has risen nearly a dollar per pound since last year, from $3.02 per pound in 2020 to $3.99 this year.

The shortage has actually prompted several chicken restaurant chains, such as KFC and A&W, to stop featuring chicken tenders in their advertising campaigns in order to avoid selling out of them in their restaurants.

This is a disaster of biblical proportions. It was one thing when I couldn’t get a new video card. But chicken tenders? Now you’ve gone a step too far. Someone’s going to pay for this!

Federal Judge Blocks Texas’ Enforcement of the First Amendment

That’s how I read it anyway.

Federal Judge Blocks Texas Social Media Censorship Law, Abbott’s Office Slams Move As ‘Hostile’ To America’s Free Speech Foundation | The Daily Wire

On Wednesday, a federal judge granted a preliminary injunction against a Texas social media “censorship” law which would prevent Big Tech giants like Twitter and Facebook from blocking content or banning users based on political viewpoints.

In September, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed HB20 into law. “There is a dangerous movement by some social media companies to silence conservative ideas and values,” said Abbott at the time. “This is wrong and we will not allow it in Texas.”

Judge Robert Pitman for the Western District of Texas granted the preliminary injunction and said that Big Tech companies have a First Amendment right to moderate content on their platforms.

No, that’s not how the First Amendment works. You have it completely backwards. I have a First Amendment right to have my voice heard.

Actually, this is an interesting case. I hope it makes its way to SCOTUS. As far as I know, the Court has  not weighed in on freedom of speech and Social Media. I’d love to hear what they have to say.

This Is Why She Can’t Be Governor

Organization That Sued MLB Over All Star Game Brutally Weighs in on Stacey Abrams – PJ Media

Their points?

Moving the MLB All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver has done real harm to the communities of Atlanta, Cobb County and the state of Georgia:

  • More than 8000 hotel reservations were canceled.

  • Revenues from ticket sales, concessions and events at Truist Park – including the Futures Game and Home Run Derby Contest – by the more than 41,000 fans expected, were lost.

  • According to Cobb County Chief Financial Officer William Volckmann, the county would receive a “robust return” on its roughly $2 million investment to host the events. Previous MLB All-Star events have generated between $37 million and $190 million for their host communities.

  • Atlanta is 51% African-American, Denver is 9% African-American. U.S. Census data indicates there are roughly 7.5 times more African-American-owned businesses in Georgia than Colorado.


All of this lost from Georgia and Atlanta.

Their CEO, Alfredo Ortiz, made a brutal statement on Thursday regarding the Abrams campaign announcement:

“I’m appalled that someone who purposely harmed the small business community of Atlanta by encouraging Major League Baseball to move the All-Star Game to Colorado would have the nerve to run for Georgia Governor. If she has campaign ambitions, I suggest she run for Mayor of Denver. She’s done much more to help the citizens there than anyone in Georgia.”

True. She actively harmed her entire state, and now she thinks she should be their governor.


Bye, Bye Mandate. I Won’t Miss You.

Biden Admin Suspends Enforcement Of CMS Mandate Following Court Order | The Daily Wire

The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced on Thursday that it was suspending the enforcement of Democrat President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate after a federal court blocked it from being implemented pending review.

In a memo, CMS stated:

Survey and Enforcement of the Vaccine Requirement for Health Care Staff in Medicare- and Medicaid-certified Providers and Suppliers Suspended While Court Ordered Injunctions are in Effect: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will not enforce the new rule regarding vaccination of health care workers or requirements for policies and procedures in certified Medicare/Medicaid providers and suppliers (including nursing facilities, hospitals, dialysis facilities and all other provider types covered by the rule) while there are court-ordered injunctions in place prohibiting enforcement of this provision.

It’s just healthcare workers so far, but it’s a good start.

The Left Caused This

They propped up BLM. They propped up Antifa.

These are both dangerous terrorist organizations, bent on destruction of our cities and our way of life. They both hate the police and want to bring them down.

And the left went after the police too with the #DefundThePolice movement. This gave these groups more reason to attack police. The results are hardly surprising.

Number Of Police Officers Shot, Killed In Line Of Duty Hits New High | The Daily Wire

The number of police shot and killed in the line of duty has reached a new high, according to statistics from the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).

“[A]s of midnight on 30 November, there have been 314 officers shot in the line of duty this year. Of those officers shot, 58 of them were killed by gunfire,” the FOP stated in a presentation on monthly statistics of shootings of police.

“There have been 95 ambush-style attacks on law enforcement officers this year,” the report continued, adding that that number is more than double the number of ambush-style attacks in 2020. Those attacks resulted in 119 officers shot, with 28 fatalities, the FOP noted.

The number of both officers shot and officers killed have already surpassed the numbers from 2020 and 2019, with a month still left in 2021. In the full year of 2020, 312 officers were shot in the line of duty, with 47 killed. In 2019, 293 officers were shot, with 50 dead.

The left caused this. They cannot be allowed to run this country any longer. They are destroying it, and you’d have a hard time convincing me at this point that it’s even accidental.

Let’s Brainstorm on This Spooky Blind-Spot


News Outlet Suggests People Should ‘Think Twice’ Before Using Words Like ‘Brainstorm,’ ‘Spooky,’ And ‘Blind-Spot’ | The Daily Wire

Every day we’re more and more like George Orwell’s 1984. Now we’re in the scene where Winston is editing the dictionary and removing words.

A news outlet in Canada has released a list of words that it says could be deemed offensive and suggest that people “think twice” before use including words like spooky, blackmail, brainstorm, and blind-spot.

The Ottawa branch of CBC News, Canada’s public news outlet, recently posted an article titled “Words and phrases you may want to think twice about using.” It consulted a number of “anti-racism” experts and linguists to analyze a number of common words and phrases that some apparently consider offensive

Ye gods.

The article goes on and on. There are dozens of words listed that they don’t want us to use anymore. I’m just going to keep talking like I always have, and if you’re offended by it, tell me. If you can convince me that your offense is deserved, I may modify my language.


I already don’t say a lot of things my grandfather said and a lot of things my father still says. I think I’m doing well enough.

I Think the Worst Option Would Be a Democrat

Kasich Republican J.D. Vance: The Worst Option in Ohio's Senate Race – PJ Media

Most polls have shown upwards of a third of likely voters are undecided, with Mandel in the lead, Vance trailing behind him, and everyone else laboring in single digits. Donald Trump won Ohio by 8 points last November, so candidates have been pandering for Trump’s endorsement with varying degrees of desperation.

From 2012-2016, I worked full-time covering Ohio policy fights from a conservative viewpoint – I spent years highlighting the pluses of labor reform and the minuses of Gov. John Kasich’s Medicaid expansion. My opinion, for what it’s worth, is that the worst Republican Senate candidate is the pro-union, pro-Obamacare technocrat advised by Kasich’s longtime enforcer.

Vance has his flaws, but he is still a Republican. He might be the worst Republican candidate, but a Democrat in this seat would be far worse. This is Rob Portman’s seat, so having a Democrat in it would be a loss.

These Are Human Rights Abuses in Australia

Three Teenagers Who Tested Negative For COVID Arrested In Australia For Leaving Quarantine | The Daily Wire

They never had the China Virus. They tested negative. Yet they were still in one of Australia’s China Virus Concentration Camps.

They escaped, and then there was a nationwide manhunt for them.

Three teenagers were arrested in Australia after climbing a fence to escape a COVID-19 quarantine compound in the middle of the night.

The teens – aged 15, 16, and 17 – had all tested negative for COVID-19 but were being quarantined because they were close contacts of people who had tested positive. They were being held in a COVID-19 quarantine facility in Howard Springs, just outside Northern Territory capital city Darwin, Australia news outlet ABC reported.

At a press conference on Thursday, local time, NT Police Commissioner Jamie Chalker said the teens were found just outside Palmerston and had been arrested after police chased them on foot. At the time, NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the teens had not had any contact with members of the community.

Why didn’t someone stop and think, “OMG, why are we doing this? This is insane! These people have done nothing wrong, and we’re hunting them down like rabid dogs!”

I’m tired of “virus fever”. And if you have it, I’m tired of you. You can take you panic and hide in a hole with it, but leave me alone.

That’s Because Democrats Buy Into the Fear

And will keep doing so as long as there is a Democrat in the White House.

Poll: 80% of Democrat voters afraid of Omicron, only 35% of Republicans are concerned | One America News Network (oann.com)

The poll also found the majority of Republican voters, 59 percent, said they are “not very concerned” or “not concerned” at all about Omicron despite the latest media frenzy.

“Democrat poll numbers are cratering, so the White House is stoking up unscientific fears about emerging variants to justify their unpopular policies,” noted Texas congressman Ronny Jackson. “This is a calculated political decision. Where is the science that’s dictating their heavy-handed response to the Omicron variant?”

The Republican lawmaker asserted that the left is simply using this new variant scare to further push lockdowns, vaccine mandates and other coronavirus restrictions. He insisted that the whole thing is political, not scientific.

See, this completely contradicts Heilemann as I said in my last post.

It’s the left that continues to try to use this virus as a political weapon. What they’re finding out though is that it’s not working nearly as well anymore. And it will continue to be less and less effective. They need to find a new plan.

Apparently It Is Hard to Figure Out

‘It’s Not Hard To Figure Out’: MSNBC Analyst Says Republicans Hate Fauci Because They Don’t Want COVID To Go Away | The Daily Wire

No. In fact, Republicans hate Fauci because they DO want the China Virus to go away. Fauci is the one who won’t let it go.

Calling the Republican Party a “death cult,” Heilemann argued that top Republicans were seeing the political advantage — especially going into the 2022 midterm elections — of allowing COVID-19 to continue to spread. “They know it hurts Joe Biden,” he said. “Their sense of the politics of this is dark. They think if Covid goes on longer, it puts them in a better position. They are right about that.”

He’s lost his mind.

Conservatives don’t think the China Virus fears are completely overblown. They want to go back to living their lives like normal. Fauci won’t let them do that. He keeps stirring up panic, keeps telling us we can’t be with our families at holidays. He keeps telling us we need more and more vaccines and have to wear masks all the time.

This is why they hate Fauci. He won’t let the China Virus die. I don’t know if it’s ego, or what. If the China Virus died, he wouldn’t get to be on the news anymore.

She’s Not Alone. Most of the Left Believes This.

With zero evidence.

I Was Thinking About This Just Today

For years, one of the arguments from the left has been that men shouldn’t participate in the debate about abortion, because men can’t get pregnant. And Whoopi falls into this same trap.

Whoopi Goldberg Goes Full Transphobe in Rant on Supreme Court – PJ Media

Why do I call it a trap, when it’s been the standard argument for so long?

Because the new argument is that men can get pregnant. Get with the times.

Earlier this year, Twitter actually suspended a politician in Spain for saying that “a man cannot get pregnant.”  We recently learned that a pregnant man emoji would soon be coming to smartphones. Back in October, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an “urgent health advisory” in which they urged “pregnant people” to get vaccinated against COVID-19, because, apparently, women aren’t the only ones who can get pregnant… according to radical left-wing gender theory.

This is similar to the same pickle that J.K. Rowling finds herself in. She’s trying to defend women’s rights. But by doing so, she’s portrayed as anti-trans. She’s not anti-trans. She’s just a feminist, pure and simple.

But you can’t be a feminist anymore if that means that your views of the need to uplift women conflict with the views of others of the need to uplift trans people.

So when Whoopi goes on a rant about men not being able to have babies, she’s doing the same thing.

The article here is tongue-in-cheek, but i am definitely not being facetious. This is the logic pretzel that the left has twisted themselves into. I don’t know how they get out of it without the help of M.C. Escher.

I’m So Surprised That Our Media and White House Would Lie About This

FAKE NEWS: No, Trump Didn't Have COVID Before His Debate With Biden – PJ Media

White House press secretary Jen Psaki referenced the claim of Trump having COVID before the debate during the White House press briefing on Wednesday, saying that Trump “apparently, reportedly, didn’t even share with people he was going to interact with that he had tested positive for COVID himself.”

Trump denied the accusations in a statement released Wednesday morning.

“The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News,” Trump said. “In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate.”

On Wednesday evening Meadows spoke of the reports and agreed with Trump.

“I believe the president said it’s fake news. What’s the story here?” Newsmax anchor Rob Schmitt asked Meadows Wednesday night.

“Well, the president’s right, it’s fake news,” Mark Meadows replied.

People repeat these things because they confirm their opinions about Trump, so it doesn’t matter whether they’re true or not.

I had a discussion with a friend about this. He can’t stand Trump, he says. And he listed all the reasons why. All of which were provably false. They were fake news stories from the MSM. But none of that mattered to my friend. In the end, he stuck with his opinions.

Oh, that #FakeNews.

And the Other Half Are Lying

Half of U.S. Households Say Inflation is Causing Them Hardship – PJ Media

According to a new Gallup poll published on Thursday, 45% of households in the United States say that inflation is causing them financial hardship. Ten percent have reported experiencing “severe hardship” as a result of the rise in prices.

Those in the lowest income brackets are hit the hardest.

No, that last can’t be true. Team Biden told me that it’s an upper class problem only.

Among those living in households making less than $40,000 a year, 71 percent said the recent price hikes have caused their family financial hardship, compared with just 47 percent of those in middle-income households and 29 percent in upper-income households.

Gallup defined an upper-income household as those bringing in more than $100,000 per year.

Among lower-income households, 28 percent described the hardship they’re experiencing as “severe and affecting their ability to maintain their current standard of living,” Gallup said.

Inflation appears to be a non-partisan plague with little difference in opinion about it across party lines. A YouGov poll found that 8% of Democrats said they’re experiencing “severe hardship” as a result of inflation, compared with 11% among both Republicans and independents.

This doesn’t agree at all with what Team Biden is saying.

Odd, that.

The Words ”Rats” and ”Sinking Ship” Come To Mind

Report: Kamala Harris’ Office To Lose Two More Key Staffers In Growing Exodus | The Daily Wire

Two more staffers are reportedly joining a growing exodus out of Vice President Kamala Harris’ office less than a year into her tenure.

Peter Velz, Harris’ director of press operations, and Vince Evans, the vice president’s deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, are expected to vacate their positions in the vice president’s office soon for other positions in the Biden administration, according to The Washington Post.

Velz and Evans’ reported expected departures come just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced in a note to the Vice President’s team that she was leaving her post by the end of the year. Sanders did not offer to stick around until her replacement is found and trained.

Either they know something, or Kamala is just a horrible person to work for. Or both.

Peng Appears Again?

IOC Holds Second Video Call With Chinese Tennis Star Peng Shuai: ‘Appeared To Be Safe And Well’ | The Daily Wire

“I was relieved to see that Peng Shuai was doing fine, which was our main concern. She appeared to be relaxed. I offered her our support and to stay in touch at any time of her convenience, which she obviously appreciated,” said Emma Terho, Chair of the IOC Athletes’ Commission.

While the video call seemed to be enough at the time for the IOC, many other organizations have called for more evidence, including the European Union.

“The EU joins growing international demands, including by sport professionals, for assurances that she is free and not under threat,” the EU said in a November statement. “In this spirit, the EU requests the Chinese government to provide verifiable proof of Peng Shuai’s safety, well-being and whereabouts. The EU urges the Chinese authorities to conduct a full, fair and transparent investigation into her allegations of sexual assault.”

Remember, there’s a reason for her disappearance.

Peng’s safety has been a concern since her November 2 social media post in which she accused former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexually assaulting her three years ago following a round of tennis. She also said Zhang’s wife guarded the door. Her post was deleted nearly 30 minutes after publication and Peng’s account on Weibo — a Chinese social media platform — was blocked from searchers on the platform.

Until she’s back out on tour, I don’t think anyone will believe China on this.

Gee, Maybe the Should Have Never Censored It From the Beginning, Do You Think?

Facebook ends censorship of searches for "Kyle Rittenhouse" (reclaimthenet.org)

Facebook has reversed a policy implemented in August 2020, which banned searches of Kyle Rittenhouse. The company did not say why it reversed the policy.

That’s funny. They wouldn’t say why. Because saying why would have led to even more uncomfortable questions, like “why did you censor in the first place, before he’d even been tried?”

Facebook’s Director of Dangerous Organizations and Individuals team Brian Fishman said that the company had deemed the incident a mass murder so it removed the accounts of Rittenhouse on Facebook and Instagram.

The company also “blocked searches of his name” and “per standard practice in these situations,” removed “praise and support of the shooter.”

They decided this knowledge might be harmful to you, without you having to figure that out for yourself. Then that turned out to be the wrong decision, so they just quietly reversed it when forced.

Great! New Restrictions for Everything!

President Joe Biden steps up COVID-19 fight with testing for travelers, coverage for home tests - UPI.com

President Joe Biden announced a five-step strategy Thursday to fight COVID-19 in the coming winter months -- including rigid testing for travelers entering the United States and insurers covering the cost of home tests.

Biden made the announcement at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

The winter plan also includes encouraging booster shots for all adults, establishing family vaccine clinics where children and adults can get vaccinated together and an increase in surge response teams.

Sign me up for lots of new restrictions. I haven’t had enough the last two years.

Democrats Aren’t Big on Consequences

When You Condone Chaos, You Condone the Consequences of Chaos (substack.com)

Democrats spent all of 2020 condoning, even encouraging riots. These riots were horrible and burned down and destroyed businesses and property. The Democrats didn’t care.

So, they shouldn’t be surprised when some of these rioters ended up dead.

This article is from a leftist who is not fully in possession of the facts on Kyle Rittenhouse. But he does understand cause and effect.

However, I do want to say this. At the time of the Kinosha riots, many many people along the left-of-center, including otherwise reformist liberals, endorsed riots to some degree or another. I know quite a few people who were willing to say that riots were just good on the merits, and there were also many saying in some terms or another that these particular riots could not be judged by progressive people due to what had inspired them. This sentiment stretches back a long way but has picked up steam in the last decade and the past year and a half particularly. Here’s a pro-riot piece and here’s a pro-riot piece and here’s a pro-riot piece and here’s a pro-rioting interview and here’s a pro-looting interview and here’s a riots-aren’t-necessarily-good-but-they-do-good-things piece and here’s a both-sidesy rioting piece and on and on. (And this is merely hilarious.) Pro-rioting sentiment is perfect for our edgelord media; it makes for good, click-farming headlines and engages in the kind of moral simplicity and righteous hectoring that defines our current culture.

Well, look: chaos is chaotic. Bad shit happens when people riot. When you create environments where anything can happen… anything can happen. Some people are going to take advantage of that opportunity to do things that you don’t like. You can’t endorse spasms of directionless violence and then complain when some of it plays out in a way that you hadn’t intended. This seems totally obvious to me, and yet so many out there want to both condone riots and condemn their chaotic outcomes. It’s like putting on music and getting mad when people dance.

So close to getting red-pilled. I doubt he makes it over the line soon, though. Still resisting.

We Have Failed Poor Joe

Psaki On Biden’s Promise To ‘Shut Down The Virus’: ‘We Need The American People To Do More’ | The Daily Wire

“To the questions from earlier about messaging, what ever happened to President Biden’s promise to shut down the virus?” a reporter asked. “There’s another variant here. Is the idea that you want people now to kind of wrap their heads around that the President, instead of shutting down the virus, is going to try to help people live amidst the virus and go about their lives but COVID is going to be here?”

Psaki said that what was needed was “approximately 20 percent of the population or more people than are currently vaccinated to go get vaccinated and go get boosted.”

“We need the American people to do more — who are not vaccinated — to help us continue to fight the virus,” Psaki added.

See. It’s all our fault. Not Joe’s.

Don’t Worry About What the Courts Say!

Biden Urges Businesses To Implement Vaccine Mandate After Federal Court Blocks It Pending Review | The Daily Wire

We’re going to lose anyway, so ignore them!

Democrat President Joe Biden is urging businesses to implement vaccine mandates even though a federal court recently blocked it citing possible “grave statutory and constitutional” issues.

A senior administration official said, “We’re asking businesses to step forward and do what’s right to protect our workers and to protect our communities, which is to put in place some sort of vaccination requirement or testing requirements for the workplace.”

This is called a mandate without a mandate. There’s nothing technically wrong with asking people to do it even though the courts have said no. They just can’t force you to.

Top CEOs Wary Of Biden Tax Hikes, New Coronavirus Variants | The Daily Wire

“We urge Congress to reject harmful tax increases like those included in the House-passed Build Back Better Act, which would be a shift in the wrong direction for our economy, American businesses and workers,” said Bolten, who also lauded the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act as “an important investment in the long-term health of the economy.”

“This quarter’s survey reflects the encouraging signs we’re seeing with the economic rebound as consumers begin to resume travel and spending,” added Business Roundtable Chairman Doug McMillon, who serves as CEO of Walmart. “Continued progress in defeating the pandemic, including new variants, will be necessary to sustain strong growth into the second half of 2022.”

Inflation is causing business costs to skyrocket, not just in terms of goods and services needed, but also many businesses are being forced to pay their employees more. This means that they must also raise their prices or be forced to suffer losses. Increasing their tax burdens will only make things worse.

Defense Secretary: Unvaccinated National Guard Members Cannot Train, Be Paid | The Daily Wire

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that members of the Army National Guard who refuse to comply with the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate would be prohibited from undergoing the required training and drills they need to maintain their status as Guardsmen.

In an internal memo to leaders of the armed forces, according to the Associated Press, Austin spelled out the new policy, directing leaders of the four service branches to publish guidance dealing with men and women serving in the National Guard who refuse the vaccine. “Vaccination is essential to the health and readiness of the force,” Austin said.

The only positive thing I can say here is that this isn’t a blatant over-reach like the rest of the vax mandates. As Secretary of Defense, he has the authority to make these rules for the Armed Forces, and that includes the Guard.

Dr. Oz vs. Dr. Fauci Will Be an Epic Battle

Dr. Oz Running For Senate To Fight Authoritarian Response To COVID – ‘Values Under Attack’ (lifezette.com)

He’s going to literally be running against two people. His opponent and Dr. Fauci. And I expect that if he somehow wins, that the battle against Fauci will intensify. Unless somehow by next November we have recovered our sanity as a country and aren’t letting this stupid virus control us.

“I’ve spent a lot of time trying to understand what went wrong and it’s emblematic of other issues we are struggling within our great country,” Oz explained. “Remember the phrase two weeks to flatten the curve? That metastasized into this terrible authoritarianism and overreaching that did not make us safer.”

“People with big yards told people with no yards to stay indoors because that’s where the virus was. Some closed the parks, shamed people about beaches — and now threatening the same overreach with the Omicron [variant] ….” he added.

I agree with him and his voice carries a lot of clout. People have been watching and listening to him for years. Rightly or wrongly, they will give his words some weight.

Maybe That’s Because He’s an Inhuman Demon

Just throwin’ that possibility out there.

Waukesha Christmas Parade Suspect: I’m Being ‘Demonized,’ ‘Dehumanized’ | The Daily Wire

The only way I have sympathy for this person is if the police somehow picked up the wrong guy. Which I don’t see anyone claiming.

The suspect, who The Daily Wire is not naming due to company policy regarding not identifying alleged mass murderers, complained to Fox News that was being “dehumanized” and “demonized.”

Well, I don’t have any problems naming Darrell Brooks.

Not even his mother has dropped by, he said. Earlier in the day, she released a statement on behalf of the family decrying Wisconsin’s criminal justice system for failing her son, a longtime felon with a 50-page rap sheet detailing domestic violence, firearms, drugs and other convictions in Wisconsin, according to documents obtained by Fox News Digital. [The suspect] is also a registered child sex offender in Nevada and served time in Georgia for beating his ex, records show.

Great guy. And let’s not forget his most recent alleged crime:

The suspected driver of a red Ford Escape killed at least six people after he allegedly intentionally plowed through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on November 21. The suspect is facing six counts of first-degree intentional homicide after the most recent charge was filed on Monday.

Can’t imagine why he’d be demonized or dehumanized.

In-N-Out Burger Seemingly Refuses To Enforce LA’s Proof Of Vaccination Rule For Indoor Dining (lifezette.com)

CBS Local visited five In-N-Out locations all over Los Angeles last night, and not one of them was enforcing the new requirement despite the fact that violators could be fined up to $5,000. CBS reporter Tom Wait was not asked to show proof of vaccination at any of the restaurants, not even after he ordered and sat at a table inside.

Interesting that CBS Local felt the need to “investigate” this and tattle on the business.

Statement from In-N-Out Chief Legal and Business Officer Arnie Wensinger:

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.”

“We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business,” Wensinger concluded. “This is a clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper and offensive.”

Well, that’s pretty clear. I hope California doesn’t shut them down.

Lies Are All They Have

Jen Psaki Keeps Repeating Lie That Trump Told People to ‘Inject Bleach' – PJ Media

He didn’t say it. Here’s the quote:

The false claim originated an exchange during the White House Coronavirus Task Force Briefing in April of last year, when possible COVID-19 treatments were discussed, including UV light treatments. And Trump said, “And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that. So, that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with. But it sounds — it sounds interesting to me.”

Later in the same briefing, a reporter asked the acting undersecretary of science and technology for the Department of Homeland Security, Bill Bryan, “The president mentioned the idea of cleaners, like bleach and isopropyl alcohol you mentioned. There’s no scenario that could be injected into a person, is there?”

It was Trump who replied, “It wouldn’t be through injection. We’re talking about through almost a cleaning, sterilization of an area. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t work. But it certainly has a big effect if it’s on a stationary object.”

But lying about Trump and things Trump didn’t say has become such a habit for the left that they can’t stop.

Lies are all they have.
