    Polk County Fire Rescue captain to be arrested when he returnsA Polk County paramedic is accused of stealing highly sought-after coronavirus vaccine vials, according to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. According to the sheriff’s office, a paramedic was arrested and accused of allowing three vials of the Moderna vaccine in his care to be taken by a supervisor and then falsifying documents to cover up the theft. Joshua Colon, 31, told detectives he was directed by his supervisor, a 17-year veteran fire captain who is expected to be arrested as well later on Tuesday, to take a break so the...

    More than 8 million Americans fell into poverty over the past six months as social safety measures put into place at the start of the coronavirus pandemic expired, according to a new study published this week. The report, released by economists at the University of Chicago and University of Notre Dame, found that the nation's poverty rate increased by 2.4 percentage points between June and December, surging from 9.3% to 11.8%. An additional 8.1 million people are now considered poor. At the end of March, Congress passed the massive $2.2 trillion CARES Act to blunt the financial pain of the...

    Moderna announced on Jan. 25 that it had developed a new CCP virus vaccine to combat a new South African variant of the virus, with plans to advance it into a phase one study. First detected in South Africa, the B.1.351 variant spreads faster and is more contagious, but there’s still no concrete evidence suggesting that it is deadlier. In addition, about 149 people have died after getting a CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine in the United States, according to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.

David Clark, a Republican from Buford, was asked to leave the chamber floor by House Speaker David Ralston. Clark refused to leave on his own and had to be escorted out by police.

    Vaccine manufacturer Merck has abandoned development of two coronavirus vaccines, saying that after extensive research it was concluded that the shots offered less protection than just contracting the virus itself and developing antibodies. The company announced that the shots V590 and V591 were ‘well tolerated’ by test patients, however they generated an ‘inferior’ immune system response in comparison with natural infection. The company stated that instead it will focus on research into therapeutic drugs labeled as MK-7110 and MK-4482. The drugs aim to protect patients from the damage of an overactive immune response to the virus. “Interim results from a...
  • If Joe Biden Really Wants Unity, He’d Call For Lockdowns To End Forever

    America welcomed a new president last week. As predicted, the theme of Joe Biden’s inaugural address was unity. That’s not surprising after five years of toxic political discourse, in which families splintered and relationships were broken off by the mere admission that somebody supported Donald Trump. But just talking about unity isn’t enough. President Biden needs actions to match those lofty words, and he needs to make sure others in his administration and party do the same. He can start by calling for an end to the lockdowns that governments have ordered since last March in response to COVID-19.As I...

    Subsidize something — get more of it. Expect the Biden economy to have additional unemployment, increased poverty, and lower incomes for a longer period.resident Biden’s plan for federal coronavirus relief resembles the American Recovery Reinvestment Act (ARRA) signed by President Obama after the 2008 financial crisis. It uses several federal agencies to separately distribute financial assistance to persons unemployed, in poverty, or otherwise with low incomes, on top of the dozens of programs already in place. Predictably, it will result in a disappointing economic recovery as long as it lasts. The plan includes a $100 weekly unemployment bonus, on top...

    As Azuka laid down in bed feverish, he had resigned to his fate believing he was not going to make it to the next day. Just 3 days into the new year and all the fun he had, attending weddings and burial ceremonies in the east all seemed like a big mistake. He must have caught covid-19 at one of those events, he thought. Since attending the last event, he fell sick and has been exhibiting the symptoms of Covid-19 and just waiting to die until someone recommended Ivermectin, a little known drug as a potential medicine that could help...

    Men in plural marriage are now confused as they go about their life under curfew and decide with which wife they will spend this period. Though it makes sense that a husband under curfew may opt for living with the one he loves most, there is a religious duty that he must achieve justice among his wives. No strain After all, they should try to make sure that their time is divided equally to avoid jealousy among their wives, so that COVI-19 will not strain their relationship. With Kuwait enforcing a total curfew running until May 30, Al Rai newspaper...

    It’s just the flu, bro. Fauci supports double masking. In previous posts I have mentioned some life hacks related to masks. I will recount those here plus some new ones: 1.always wear below the nose 2.if the mask police tell you to put your mask above the nose then be sure to wear a thin cloth mask 3.a double cloth mask can be turned into a thin single layer mask by cutting out a layer with scissors 4.put tiny slits in the single layer cloth mask to further enhance breathing 5.wear a cloth mask that has been washed in...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden, appeared to support the idea of “double-masking,” or wearing two masks at once, during a Monday appearance on TODAY, telling anchor Savannah Guthrie that it “just makes common sense that it would likely be more effective.” “A lot of folks are hearing now about double-masking — wearing two masks or try[ing] to get one of those N95 medical-grade masks. Do you believe that’s advisable and makes a difference?” Guthrie asked the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director. “You know, it likely does because I mean this is a physical...

    Something strange is going on in the markets and in economic policymaking circles. Despite the world having just suffered from its worst economic recession in the past ninety years, the overwhelming consensus view is that the U.S. will experience a strong economic recovery in the second half of this year and the economy will soon return back to normal. Such a strong recovery would be in marked contrast to that following the 2008-2009 Great Economic Recession, which was the slowest economic recovery on record and which was punctuated by a number of fits and starts. Those fits and starts included...

    Two years ago, while on a hospital gurney, my mother told me that she had to be cynical to be Black and survive in this country. With scent of antiseptic wafting in the air and alarms blaring out codes and directions, she took the hectic moment to explain that there was a part of you — or her, anyway — that would always want to feel safe here but expect to be disappointed. You would love to trust the law, even as the regularity of police brutality built up your reasons not to. And that someday you’d find a health...

    Remember way back in August, when folks started raising a big stink over the fact that 94% of reported COVID-19 deaths involved at least one other comorbidity?The CDC now claims that 94% of all coronavirus deaths were supplementary, meaning, the person had co-morbidities. Less than 10,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 alone. #Coronavirus is and always has been a hoax. Democrats masked & impoverished America to rig an election.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) September 1, 2020Well, though the overwhelming prevalence of comorbidities on death certificates fingering COVID-19 does, indeed, also finger the CDC for not just cooking the books, but doing...

    What a glorious thing the reopening is! After nearly a year of darkening times, the light has begun to dawn, at least in the US. Given how incredibly political this pandemic has been from the beginning, many people smell a rat. Is it really the case that the reopening of the American economy, particularly in blue states, is so perfectly timed? Do the science and politics really line up so well?These are questions for another day. And for the record, my own opinion is that the loosening of restrictions is timed well with the relaxing of public disease fear, from...
