    March 26 2020 Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent Reading 1 Ex 32:7-14 The LORD said to Moses, “Go down at once to your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt, for they have become depraved. They have soon turned aside from the way I pointed out to them, making for themselves a molten calf and worshiping it, sacrificing to it and crying out, ‘This is your God, O Israel, who brought you out of the land of Egypt!’ The LORD said to Moses, “I see how stiff-necked this people is. Let me alone, then,...

    A major source of information upon which government leaders have relied to urge or order the canceling of public events, shut down of businesses and sheltering in place has proved to be inaccurate. The Federalist's Madeline Osburn points out many members of the media and state officials are relying on an online mapping tool called COVID Act Now. The site, with a map of catastrophic forecasts for each state, boasts of enabling "political leaders to quickly make decisions in their Coronavirus response informed by best available data and modeling." "But a closer look at how many of COVID Act Now's...

    A minister who has been leading a weekly Bible-study group for members of President Trump's Cabinet has posted online his belief that amid the coronavirus, America is not experiencing God's "forsaking wrath" but, rather, his "consequential wrath." "Some leading evangelicals believe and teach that America is now experiencing God's judgment," wrote Ralph Drollinger, a former NBA player and the founder of Capitol Ministries, which provides Bible studies, evangelism and discipleship to political leaders. "If that is the case, as a public servant who is sacrificing so much in your attempt to turn our nation around, it would stand to reason...

    As the novel coronavirus incubated in Wuhan from mid-December to mid-January, the Chinese state made evidently intentional misrepresentations to its people concerning the outbreak, providing false assurances to the population preceding the approach of the Lunar New Year celebrations on Jan. 25. In mid-December, an outbreak of a novel influenza-like illness was traced to workers and customers of the city’s Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, which contained exotic and wild animal species. On Dec. 26, multiple Chinese news outlets released reports of an anonymous laboratory technician who made a startling discovery: The sickness was caused by a new coronavirus that was 87 percent similar to...
  • Bureau of Prisons failed to monitor terrorist communications, IG report says

    The Bureau of Prisons failed to adequately monitor thousands of communications from more than 500 inmates with ties to terrorism, according to a Justice Department inspector general report released Wednesday. In the nearly 70-page report, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz wrote that the Bureau of Prisons did not take appropriate steps to review the mail, email, phone calls, video sessions and cellblock conversations of domestic and international terrorist inmates. For example, the bureau failed to flag a letter that a high-risk inmate received from his wife detailing her intent to compromise a staff member at his prison. The BOP also...

    One day there will be a dark unending abyss. One without beginning or end, without time or space. A mere black void, of intention and as I gaze upon it, peering into its endless depth I will realize it will have nothing more perverse than what I’ve seen during the great clown age. Make no mistake the headline is not an attempt to compete with the Babylon Bee for the most outrageous satirical piece. The book in question is very much real. Marvel’s recent attempt to cash in on the step-sibling trend on Pornhub has hilarious and massively backfired in...

    Jay Forman became very ill earlier this month and tested positive for the coronavirus. He went to the hospital on March 16th with a fever and a cough.

He had a 102 degree temperature was coughing and couldn’t speak and couldn’t breathe. Then the doctors gave him hydroxychloroquine on Saturday morning and a Z-Pak. Four days later his fever broke and he has...

    Kathy Griffin was hospitalized Wednesday with what she described as “unbearably painful” symptoms, and she blamed President Trump. The washed up ‘comedian’ posted a photo of herself in the hospital wearing a face mask and accused President Trump of lying about the Coronavirus pandemic.“He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions,” Kathy Griffin said in a tweet.Kathy Griffin attached two photos to her tweet — one photo...

    Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden returned Wednesday to his longtime habit of gilding his academic credentials. Mr. Biden claimed to be an Ivy League professor at the end of a nearly 8-minute, rambling answer to a question from an 18-year-old on what he was doing to appeal to young voters who may favor Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination. “There’s a lot we can do. When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania,” he said, bringing up that fact to claim that his professorship established a bond with college...

    Over 4 million New Yorkers — or 50 percent of the city’s population — will get the coronavirus, Mayor de Blasio warned Wednesday. “It’s a fair bet to say that half of all New Yorkers and maybe more than half will end up contracting this disease,” de Blasio said at a City Hall press briefing about the outbreak as the Big Apple’s positive cases approached 18,000 with nearly 200 deaths.

    We may be in the middle of quarantine during a pandemic, but the LGBT agenda never takes a break. This week, NBC introduced the new show Council of Dads, inspired by Bruce Feiler's best-selling memoir of the same name. According to Deadline, after Feiler was diagnosed with cancer he feared "what the absence of a father figure would do to the lives of his young twin daughters, he [Feiler] looked at his male friends and realized that there was no one person perfectly suited for the job. So he formed a Council of Dads, which consisted of six of his...

    The city is already locked down, with residents asked to remain at home as much as possible per one of Andrew Cuomo’s orders a week ago.What Tom Bossert has in mind is a lock-in. No one in or out, except suppliers. Wall the city off until the spread of infection there is under control, whenever that is. Otherwise we’re risking the same problem that the Chinese had in Wuhan, moving too slowly to restrict the outflow of people and allowing them to seed outbreaks elsewhere. There are nearly 31,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New York State as of...

    Last week, when their “health weather” map debuted, I noted that it was nifty but that it’d be nice to be able to see at a glance on the map whether fevers are becoming more or less common. Kinsa added that feature (“Trends”) yesterday.As you can see above, there’s a band of counties in Colorado and New Mexico that are showing a modest increase but otherwise the fever rate is declining practically everywhere coast to coast. Dark blue areas reflect the steepest decline. Check out L.A.: Not only are they not (yet) seeing atypical rates of fever, they’re waaaaaay...

    Since California’s controversial anti-freelancer bill was signed into law in September 2019, one (not unpredictable) result has been staffing shortages in the healthcare industry, particularly in fields generally staffed by contractors or locum tenens providers: physicians assistants, nurses, nurse anesthetists, and respiratory therapists. As the Wuhan coronavirus made its way into California, advocates who’ve been pushing to fix/amend/repeal AB5 let Asm. Lorena Gonzalez, the bill’s author, know in no uncertain terms that unless enforcement of AB5 was suspended until the crisis passed Californians who needed care from these professionals would die. Gonzalez didn’t listen, and people are dying. The populations...

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is planning several different investigations into the Trump administration’s response to the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. According to the Washington Examiner, at least five inquiries “related to HHS’s planning and response of the COVID-19 outbreak” will be conducted by the internal oversight authority. Per that report: The inquiries will scrutinize issues such as nationwide hospital responses, quarantine procedures, the training and protective gear provided to front-line health workers, nursing home standards amid a disease with an exponentially more deadly effect on the elderly and...

    Along with inventing writing, the wheel, the plow, law codes and literature, the Sumerians are also remembered as some of history's original brewers... dating back to the fourth millennium B.C. The brewing techniques they used are still a mystery, but their preferred ale seems to have been a barley-based concoction so thick that it had to be sipped through a special kind of filtration straw. The Sumerians prized their beer for its nutrient-rich ingredients and hailed it as the key to a "joyful heart and a contented liver." ...
