    Axios ^ | 13 mins ago 1/27/21 | Shawna Chen
    Infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci highlighted the need to address racial disparities in the COVID-19 vaccination process, per an interview with The New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday.What he’s saying: "I think that's the one thing we really got to be careful of. We don't want in the beginning ... most of the people who are getting it are otherwise, well, middle-class white people.""You really want to get it to the people who are really the most vulnerable ... you don't want to have a situation where people who really are in need of it, because of where they...
  • Rantz: Councilmember Gonzalez renews push to fire white Seattle police officers

    The Seattle City Council will renew its push to fire white officers within the Seattle Police Department. The move comes after a nearly 20% cut to the budget and a loss of nearly 200 officers from the department. The SPD has the lowest deployable rate of officers since 1990, as the city experiences a surge in violent crime, including a 26-year-high murder rate. We shouldn’t be firing anyone. Legal issues aside, the only practical way the council can fire white officers is to negotiate the right in the next contract. They’ll get their chance to in 2021. The Seattle Police...

    In its final days, the Trump administration is seeking to disrupt the way progressive activists increasingly impose their will on big business: through banks controlling the loan lifelines to the economy. A regulation just finalized (update) aims to prevent lenders from blackballing businesses in industries opposed by the left by requiring banks to demonstrate that their loan decisions are “based on quantitative, impartial risk-based standards,” rather than political or reputational concerns. The proposed Fair Access to Financial Services Rule (FAFSR) is a response to successful pressure campaigns waged by environmental groups and congressional Democrats, which culminated in every major American...

    Morgan, Lewis & Bockius announced Wednesday that it will be dropping former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization as tax clients. “We have had a limited representation of the Trump Organization and Donald Trump in tax-related matters,” a Morgan Lewis spokeswoman told Law.com, Bloomberg Law and Thomson Reuters Legal. “For those matters not already concluded, we are transitioning as appropriate to other counsel.” Law360 reports on one ongoing matter—a probe seeking information on whether the Trump Organization inflated the value of property donated for a conservation easement to claim a higher tax deduction. On Tuesday, Judge Arthur Engoron of...

    Prime Minister Johnson offered an oblique defence of U.S. President Joe Biden when asked if he thought he was “woke”, saying there was “nothing wrong” with that. Prime Minister Johnson, a notionally conservative politician, made the comments after Lisa Nandy, shadow foreign secretary for the opposition Labour party, had praised Mr Biden, 78, as “a woke guy”.
  • When The Left Refuses Service, They’re Preventing Violence. When The Right Denies Service, They’re Bigots

    One of the most shocking developments in the days following the latest Capitol riot has been the ease with which left-wing corporations and tech behemoths have been able to deny service to people on the right.This is surprising not because of some conservative delusion that the increasingly progressive corporate world is friendly to our views. We know better. No, this blatantly belief-based discrimination is astounding because of the holy war that erupts any time a conservative attempts to deny services to another person based on constitutionally protected and deeply-held religious beliefs.When the left refuses service due to an arbitrary standard...

    Democratic Congresswoman Nikema Williams introduced a bill to ban President Trump from entering the U.S. Capitol building for the rest of his life. Introduced January 13th, the concurrent resolution seeks to “direct the Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives, the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper of the Senate, and the United States Capitol Police to prohibit President Donald John Trump from entering the United States Capitol at any time after the expiration of his term as President.” Since its announcem

    The lawsuit goes on to say that during a meeting with the school’s principal, Jeannie Steenberge, and a faculty member, the two adults allowed the black students to berate and scream at their daughter, calling her “the biggest known racist in the school,” and accusing her of being “in love with Trump” because she owned Trump decals and other merchandise. “Everyone knows ALL Trump supporters are racist,” the petition claims one black student said. During another meeting, the parents’ petition says the principal told their daughter she was a racist, and that “we are all racists, we are white.” According...

    Now that Amazon Web Services has shut down Parler, will the social network rebuild elsewhere? Parler CEO John Matze says Parler will be back with "many competing for our business." Don't bet on it. There appears to be no major public cloud or hosting company willing to give Parler a home. But, even if there were, Parler would find it almost impossible to return anytime soon. Parler will need to build its own infrastructure.

    Cancel culture doesn’t exist, they say. And yet with the flick of a switch, billionaire capitalists voted for by precisely nobody have just silenced a man who is still the democratically elected president of the United States. With the push of a button in their vast temples to technology, the new capitalist oligarchs of Silicon Valley have prevented a man who won the second largest vote in the history of the American republic just two months ago — 74million votes — from engaging with his supporters (and critics) in the new public square of the internet age. Not only does...

    A flight attendants' union has called for members of the pro-Trump mob which stormed the Capitol on Wednesday to be banned from flights out of Washington, DC, amid concerns about their violent behaviour. Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, condemned the "mob mentality behavior" protestors had demonstrated aboard flights into Washington on Wednesday ahead of the protests, and said the violence pro-Trump supporters had demonstrated at the Capitol meant they should be prevented from boarding flights home.

    The government of Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has announced it will be investing $40 million into home ownership opportunities exclusively for black people. ... our Government knows that much more needs to be done,” Minister Hussen said. Hussen, a Somali refugee, held his former Immigration Minister position during the surge of illegal border crossings from the United States, with most of the migrants crossing the border coming originally from Haiti. Last January, while still immigration Minister, Hussen and the Trudeau government announced plans to add more than one million immigrants to the Canadian population over a three-year period. Hussen...

    Vote reparations would empower us to replace oppressive institutions with life-affirming structures of equality.Black votes in this country are worth less than white votes. Joe Biden won the Electoral College because Black voters in Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia turned out in significant numbers. But even with overwhelming Black support—94 percent of Detroit voted for Biden!—the outcomes in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were worryingly close.One core problem is the Electoral College. Wyoming, which has just 580,000 residents and is 93 percent white, gets three electors because of its two senators and one representative in the House. By comparison, Georgia’s...

    The media has normalized an anti-religious bigotry that threatens to remove faithful Christians, be they Catholic or anything else, from public service.In a series of articles by its editorial board, media columnist Margaret Sullivan, and former Voice of America Director Amanda Bennett, the Washington Post has mounted a coordinated attack on Robert R. Reilly, the new nominee for VOA director, claiming he is an existential threat to the organization’s mission to provide independent reporting to foreign audiences.The reason they deem Reilly disqualified to serve as VOA director isn’t about a lack of credentials. He was director from 2001 to 2002...

    ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Innovex Downhole Solutions says it was recently denied an order of jackets by The North Face, a popular outdoor recreation company, because Innovex is an oil and gas business. “I was surprised but not surprised, if that makes sense,” said Innovex CEO Adam Anderson. Innovex is based in Houston and has nearly 100 workers in the Permian Basin. Each year, the company gets a Christmas gift for its employees. This year, it was supposed to be a North Face jacket with an Innovex logo, a company Innovex has ordered gear from in the past. The company...

    Has anyone noticed the change in television advertisement over the last few months. Most noticeably, the % of blacks, gays, transgenders and mixed race married couples featured Practically every commercial ad anymore has a black person, couple, child etc. represented. Blacks make up 13.4% of the US population yet if you were an alien from another planet and asked to guess what it actually was from television spots you would assume it's at least 50%! Same with mixed race couples.....Every third ad with couples features a mixed black/white union when in reality the actual % of such situations is ~...

    On Thursday, a pastor who previously lived a homosexual lifestyle made his appeal in a unique case regarding discrimination and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), which protects Big Tech companies from liability for the content third-parties post on their platforms. The pastor is suing Vimeo for discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and religion after the platform banned him from publishing videos telling the stories of people who identify as ex-gay. “This is a case of grave importance because it is about whether big tech platforms can unlawfully discriminate against persons based on religion or sexual...

    Ivy League schools have the reputation as the best universities in the nation. But, a new Cornell policy for Fall 2020 which gives people of color an exemption from the school’s mandatory flu vaccination is turning heads. How can an equal opportunity educator require only its Caucasian students to get vaccinated?

    Students at Cornell University can use their status as a “person of color” to be exempt from the university’s flu vaccine requirement. “Students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a Person of Color (BIPOC) may have personal concerns about fulfilling the Compact requirements based on historical injustices and current events,” explains Cornell Health’s vaccine requirement FAQ. Students can send a private message to Cornell Health in order to request a non-medical or non-religious exemption for the immunization. For more information, the FAQ links to a page “especially for students of color,” which is meant to help minority students concerned...

    President-elect Joe Biden proudly has announced that his White House senior communications team will be "filled entirely by women." As a woman, I like to see women break barriers and take a seat in what used to be men's clubs. But it's hard to get excited at the notion that Biden's upper-press operation will be Ladies Only. Men represent some 49 percent of the population, so you'd think there would be a place for at least one of them in the top seven plum spots. Mayhap Team Biden was finding it hard to come up with "firsts." Dee Dee Myers,...
