    Anthony Fauci says the “the worst time” for a government shutdown is in the middle of a pandemic, a warning that comes as Congress is barreling toward a financial impasse that could close down the government. “I think it’s so obvious to anybody who’s looking at the situation,” the nation's leading infectious disease expert said in an interview with The Washington Post’s The Early 202. “The worst time in the world we want to shut down the government is in the middle of a pandemic where we have 140,000 people a day getting infected and 2,000 people a day dying....

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said he favors COVID-19 vaccination mandates in schools, weeks ahead of the expected approval of the vaccine for kids ages 5-11. Children under 12 aren’t eligible to get jabbed yet, but federal regulators are likely to OK the Pfizer-BioNTech for use in kids 5 and up as early as October, Fauci said Monday. “I know there’s a lot of pushback against mandates,” the White House chief medical adviser told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson. “But, I think we’re in such an emergency situation with the 150,000 cases that we’re having each day.” Fauci, who has become a favorite target...

    U.S. Postal Service employees are exempt from the Biden administration’s new coronavirus-vaccine requirements for federal workers and large companies, White House officials told the Washington Post on Thursday evening. -snip- However, those requirements do not extend to the USPS, a federal agency that employs over 644,000 people. “We strongly encourage them to comply with these standards,” White House officials told the Post. It was not immediately clear why the administration’s vaccination requirements do not extend to the Postal Service.

    President Joe Biden on Thursday will present a six-pronged strategy intended to fight the spread of the highly contagious COVID Delta variant and increase U.S. COVID-19 vaccinations, the White House said on Tuesday. The United States, which leads the world in COVID-19 cases and deaths, is struggling to stem a wave of infections driven by the variant even as officials try to persuade Americans who have resisted vaccination to get the shots. Rising case loads have raised concerns as children head back to school, while also rattling investors and upending company return-to-office plans. White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease expert, said on Sunday he supports COVID-19 vaccine mandates for children attending schools as the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus continues to fuel a surge in cases in the nation. "I believe that mandating vaccines for children to appear in school is a good idea," Fauci told CNN’s "State of the Union" program. "We've done this for decades and decades, requiring polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis" vaccinations. Currently, children under 12 are not eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. But Fauci, in a separate interview on ABC's...

    Mask-pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was apparently caught addressing an outdoor crowd of mask-less Democratic big wigs in COVID-19-riddled Napa Valley over the weekend, according to video and tweets. A clip of the close-quartered fund-raiser was posted on Facebook by Democratic Party donor and winemaker Kathryn Walt Hall — and promptly blasted out on Twitter. The footage appeared to show dozens of unmasked people seated elbow to elbow at long luncheon tables as Pelosi gave a speech and masked waiters ambled between the listeners. “All the servants fully masked,” tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald. “The almost-entirely old, white, rich crowd of...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Healthy and in their 30s, Christina and Josh Tidmore figured they were low-risk for COVID-19. With conflicting viewpoints about whether to get vaccinated against the virus filling their social media feeds and social circles, they decided to wait. On July 20, Josh came home from work with a slight cough initially thought to be sinus trouble. On Aug. 11, he died of COVID-19 at a north Alabama hospital as Christina Tidmore witnessed a doctor and her team frantically try to resuscitate her husband. “She would say, ’I need a pulse. ’I would hear, ‘no pulse,’ “Christina...

    Gov. Kate Brown announced Tuesday that Oregonians will be required to start wearing masks in all indoor public spaces regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status -- a move that comes as the pandemic spirals out of control and new projections show COVID-19 hospitalizations could nearly double by September from today’s record numbers. Brown didn’t specify a date for when the mandate will take effect, but she is expected to share more details during a news conference Wednesday. Brown also announced Tuesday that starting as early as Oct. 18 she will require all state employees in the executive branch -- which...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas on Monday set a new record for the number of people in the state hospitalized because of COVID-19 as its coronavirus surge continued. The state reported its COVID-19 hospitalizations rose by 103, its biggest one-day increase, to 1,376.

    Talk about the upper crust life, huh? Former President Barack Obama has his bougie birthday party over the weekend. There were tons of guests. It was a superspreader event if we’re going by the liberal media’s rules. COVID is back in the news, and the media is beyond aroused by it. They’re getting off on rising cases, deaths, and hospitalizations. They’re also using this as their PSA bullhorn to tell people to get vaccinated. Should we get the shot? Yes, I think they should. Should they be forced? No. There are a ton of people who don’t like vaccine mandates...

    @ggreenwaldLeft-liberals spent a full year relentlessly COVID-shaming anyone who went outside (unless for liberal protests) or questioning Fauci. But now that their icons threw themselves an opulent indoor maskless party, they announce that only pettiness or jealousy would make you notice. According to @JoyAnnReid if you find anything distasteful or noteworthy about Obama throwing himself a gigantic maskless indoor party at his $12 million weekend estate -- as restrictions intensify -- it just means you're an unsophisticated, poor loser, angry you weren't invited. Can't remember an episode that has revealed quite as vividly how liberal elites really see the world...
