  • Guess Who Had Access to Classified Information in Biden's Garage?

    The White House confirmed Thursday morning that President Joe Biden improperly stored classified information in his Wilmington, Delaware garage. Contrary to Biden’s statements: -he did not take classified documents “seriously” -he failed to follow protocol -none of this is by the book -he did not act “immediately” -he and his DOJ failed at a cover-up — Spencer Brown (@itsSpencerBrown) January 12, 2023 Biden kept classified documents in his Wilmington garage. Conveniently, there isn’t a visitor log available to the public keeping track of who visits, despite all of the time Biden spends there. — Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) January 12, 2023...

Bush, and their wives, Michelle Obama and Laura Bush. Former President Donald Trump is not expected to attend.

    As tens of tens of millions of People stay unvaccinated, state and native governments have launched mandates requiring public workers be absolutely inoculated in opposition to the coronavirus. And whereas orders in some localities have translated into a final minute surge in vaccination charges, they’re additionally met with steadfast refusal, resulting in authorized challenges or considerations over staffing points.Washington State’s mandate, one of many strictest within the nation, went into impact on Monday. The order requires greater than 800,000 public staff to be absolutely inoculated in opposition to the coronavirus, save for a non secular or medical exemption, or danger...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci sounded off on Gen. Colin Powell dying of complications from a reported breakthrough case of COVID-19. Co-host Willie Geist asked Fauci what he would tell people who argue Powell’s death shows the coronavirus vaccine doesn’t work.

    In the past two weeks, COVID-19 has struck three well-known people. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who had been fully vaccinated, died on Monday due to complications from the virus. Meanwhile, two men who had refused vaccination—conservative radio talk show host Dennis Prager and Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West—caught the virus but survived. On Fox News, these stories are being exploited to cast doubt on COVID vaccines and to suggest that people should rely instead on “natural immunity” or therapeutic drugs. But in fact, the three stories illustrate how vaccine refusers endanger everyone else. People like Prager and West...

    was bombarded with criticism on Tuesday for labeling late Secretary of State Colin Powell a 'RINO' who 'made plenty of mistakes' in a statement one day after Powell's death of COVID-19 complications at age 84. In an email full of mixed messages, Trump commented on the posthumous praise Powell has been receiving since Monday morning and said he hoped he'd get the same treatment 'one day.' 'Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media,' Trump said in a statement...
  • Was Colin Powell's death caused by COVID or with COVID?

    American Thinker ^ | 10/20/2021 | Jack Hellner
    As soon as it was learned that fully vaccinated Colin Powell died of COVID complications, the “experts” came out to tell the public that the vaccine did not fail. They said that Powell died from other diseases, rather than COVID itself. His final illness, nevertheless, was characterized as "complications" from COVID. Now, one line of thought is that the vaccines are useless, given that they didn't protect Powell. But it's doubtful that any of these experts really know what did Powell in. It could just as easily be that Powell died of other causes even as he had COVID, but...

    Most of us would like to remain in this world as long as possible but when we inevitably shuffle off this mortal coil, CNN's Chris Cillizza might be the last person you would want to write your obituary. Why? Because there is a strong chance you would be relegated almost to a sideshow in the remembrance. Such was the case with Colin Powell, who passed away on Monday. He was a diplomat, a statesman, and a four-star general as well as the first African-American Secretary of State. However, in Cillizza's account on Monday, "The Colin Powell Republican no longer exists...

    Whoopi Goldberg told her co-hosts Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that former Secretary of State Colin Powell may not have died if more Americas were vaccinated against COVID-19. Goldberg said, “Here’s my thing, at some point, people are going to have to grow up. You’re either going to have to make a decision. Five gazillion of us are vaccinated, and we’re okay. Yeah, people have died. People have died having been vaccinated. As of October, there have been 7,178 fatal breakthrough cases that have been reported to the CDC.”

    Former US Secretary of State Colin Powell died on Monday of Covid-19 complications. His family announced that he was fully vaccinated. He was 84 years old, and had multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. Health officials worry that anti-vaccine activists will seize upon Powell's death to make the claim that vaccines don't work. If you can still die after being vaccinated for Covid-19, what's the point of getting the vaccine? CNN: When we see vaccinated people dying from Covid-19, how do you explain that vaccines are still worth taking? Dr. Leana Wen: We need to start with the science and what...

    ... Powell was an ardent critic of Trump, particularly after the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol attack. He endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. Following the attack on the Capitol, Powell said he could "no longer call myself a fellow Republican." “I do not know how he was able to attract all of these people. They should have known better, but they were so taken by their political standing and how none of them wanted to put themselves at political risk. They would not stand up and tell the truth or stand up and criticize him, or criticize others,”...

    You need to understand that in a society where religion has gone out of fashion, the elite has to canonize secular saints as examples for the people it proposes to rule. The elite needs a quasi-religious justification to feel superior, and if it is not divine right that grants them that dispensation, it must be their own inherent superiority. This is why is so vital for them to feel smart – and why you see nonsense like signs reading “We believe in science” on the lawns of suburban wine women who contend that Kaden has become Katy through the power...

    Fox News anchor John Roberts deleted a tweet on Monday that suggested former Secretary of State Colin Powell's death from COVID-19 complications raises "new concerns" about the long-term efficacy of inoculation. Powell's family announced his death in a statement that also said the 84-year-old had been fully vaccinated. He also reportedly had been diagnosed from multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer that weakens the body’s ability to protect against infections. Roberts's deleted tweet said "the fact that Colin Powell died from a breakthrough COVID infection raises new concerns about how effective vaccines are long-term." It was met with an...

    Colin Powell, 84, died Monday morning due to complications from Covid-19. Powell was fully vaccinated against the virus, his family said in a statement. Powell was elderly, a known risk for severe Covid, and suffered from multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that studies show can make the shots less effective. A study published in late July found that only 45% of patients with active multiple myeloma developed an "adequate" immune response after getting vaccinated with either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. Just 22% of patients in the study had a "partial" response.... Offit said fully vaccinated people with weak immune...

    President Biden on Monday paid tribute to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who died earlier in the day due to complications from COVID-19, noting his many accomplishments and patriotism that "earned him the universal respect of the American people." “Colin embodied the highest ideals of both warrior and diplomat. He was committed to our nation’s strength and security above all. Having fought in wars, he understood better than anyone that military might alone was not enough to maintain our peace and prosperity,” the president said in a statement. “From his front-seat view of history, advising presidents and shaping our...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio paid tribute to Colin Powell, who died Monday from COVID-19 complications, saying the Harlem-born first black secretary of state exemplified the best of the Big Apple and made New Yorkers “very proud.” “General Powell served this nation with just tremendous distinction,” he said Monday morning during his daily press briefing, held remotely in City Hall. De Blasio noted Powell’s “absolute classic New York City story” of being born to Jamaican immigrants, growing up in Harlem and The Bronx and graduating from Morris High School before attending City College of New York. “Just an absolute great example...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who sadly passed away from COVID complications, will be remembered for many accomplishments and failings. His legacy will have detractors on the right (he was a sellout who endorsed Obama) and the left (he misled us about WMDs), but I can’t help thinking what if he had been the future of the Republican Party? Counterfactuals are always messy, but bear with me. There is reason to believe that Powell was Ronald Reagan’s vision of the Republican Party’s bright future. And Powell might well have defeated Bill Clinton in 1996. That would have made Powell...

He was a great public servant, starting with his time as a soldier during Vietnam,” Bush said in a statement issued shortly after Powell's family announced his death on Monday morning. Powell’s family issued a statement saying that the former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had died at...
