    There was a peculiar moment during a news segment last fall, at the height of the Ebola scare in the United States, between the nation’s two most recognizable medical figures. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s household-name medical correspondent, was standing next to Thomas Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in front of CDC headquarters in Atlanta on October 1. Frieden assures Gupta that if one of them had Ebola, the other would be at no risk of infection: “It’s not like the flu, not like the common cold. It requires direct physical contact.” A CNN anchor interjects:...

    “What I like doing best is Nothing,” Christopher Robin tells Winnie-the-Pooh in A. A. Milne’s 1928 collection of stories, The House at Pooh Corner. The capitalization of “Nothing” is not a typo. Milne is introducing children (and re-introducing their parents) to a deep philosophical point through the voice of a fictional boy and his anthropomorphic stuffed bear. “How do you do Nothing?” Pooh asks. Christopher Robin responds that being outdoors on a lovely day—as they are—sitting on a grassy knoll, enjoying one another’s company, with birds singing in the trees above, is: “a nothing sort of thing.” He further explains,...

    Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) appeared on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" to explain his Party's strategy for dealing with the surge of illegal immigration. "Republicans call this a border crisis," Carper said. "The truth is that it's not the border that is the source of the crisis. This crisis is in the countries these migrants are coming from. The willingness to undertake a long, grueling and dangerous journey stems from the appalling conditions in these migrants' home countries. These countries are places of crime, violence, corruption, and lack of economic opportunity and hope. Closing the border and deporting these refugees doesn't...

    Former President Obama is claiming right-wing media outlets of profiting by stoking “fear and resentment” among white people toward a “changing America” — pointing to national pushback on critical race theory as an example. The 44th commander-in-chief told Anderson Cooper in a CNN special Monday that many race problems are a reflection of the US not having “fully reconciled with our history.” He said it was “hard for the majority” of white Americans “to recognize you can be proud of this country and its traditions and its history and our forefathers and yet, it is also true that this terrible...

    The new White House science adviser wants to have a vaccine ready to fight the next pandemic in just about 100 days after recognizing a potential viral outbreak. In his first interview after being sworn in Wednesday, Eric Lander painted a rosy near future where a renewed American emphasis on science not only better prepares the world for the next pandemic with plug-and-play vaccines, but also changes how medicine fights disease and treats patients, curbs climate change and further explores space. He even threw in a “Star Trek” reference. “This is a moment in so many ways, not just health,...
  • Politics of Fear: Democratic Mask Neurosis and the Republican Mushroom Cloud

    05/20/2021 4:03:01 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | May 20, 2021 | John Kass
    Many Republicans are rightfully gleeful over the mask dysphoria being suffered by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, the high TV priestess of the establishment left. But as they ridicule her for mask neurosis, I wonder if they've blocked from their own memories that "mushroom cloud" argument for the establishment Republican war in Iraq. The mushroom cloud, like today's COVID-19 masks that are often sodden and clutched like religious relics, was a symbol. And such symbols are used in the politics of fear. Maddow recently admitted she was disoriented and confused after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's abrupt announcement that fully...

    As COVID restrictions begin to fall there seems to be a new problem emerging, namely, Americans’ inability to ditch the masks. Masks, it seems, have become a type of “security blanket” for many, reporter Karin Brulliard claims in a recent Washington Post article. She explains how David Díaz, a vaccinated 29-year-old, struggles to go for a run outside without a mask, worried not so much about the virus anymore, but rather what others will think of him. “At what point are you doing more harm than good and letting fear or something rule your life?’” Díaz is quoted as asking...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Fully vaccinated people no longer have to wear masks, but some people are still choosing to wear one in public places which has caused some uncomfortable situations. At the beginning of the pandemic, people were shamed for wearing masks, now the tables seem to have turned and when people aren’t wearing a mask they get some looks. “Most people have them, and then there are some without them, and those people kind of just stand out,” said Andres Ramirez, a customer at Walmart. As more New Mexicans continue to get vaccinated, many people KRQE News 13...

    “It’s a little strange to see people,” said Laura, 64, among the 2,000 visitors who got timed-entry tickets Thursday. “I’m still anxious being in public,” she acknowledged from behind her mask, taking in her surroundings with the tentativeness of a visitor to an alien planet. “You don’t know who’s vaccinated.” [cut] During the winter, when she went outside alone with nothing on her face, a jogger ran by and sneered, “ ‘Nice mask!’ or something like that,” recalled Campbell, a program specialist who lives in Columbia Heights. Then and now, she said, her choice of going maskless was dictated by...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama said on Friday’s broadcast of “CBS This Morning” that she worried as the mother of two Black daughters, Malia, 22, and Sasha, 19, “every time they get in a car by themselves.” When former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of the murder of George Floyd, former President Barack and Michelle Obama said in a joint statement, “true justice is about much more than a single verdict in a single trial.”

    Hysterical people are scrambling to figure out how to get the vaccine hesitant to capitulate. If you are reluctant to get the COVID vaccine and beginning to feel overrun by forces pressuring you to get vaccinated, you aren’t alone and you aren’t crazy. There’s a reason you feel the way you do. You are being manipulated. We are being bombarded with commercials pushing us to be socially responsible. Medical professionals, celebrities, and folks in our communities admonish us not to shirk our civic duty. Suddenly, the vaccine is the only way to normalcy. Friends and family openly brag about their...

    In his opening monologue on "Hannity" Friday, Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted the Biden administration for it's apparent mixed messaging on masks, asking why the President and First Lady continue wearing masks outside even though they both have received the COVID-19 vaccine. HANNITY: Why is Mr. "Follow the Science" still wearing a mask? And what kind of message is he sending here? Does he want Americans to think the vaccines maybe have suspicious--they’re not as effective as they’ve been telling us? Does he want mask mandates, social distancing in perpetuity? Forever? How is any of this getting us back...

    There’s more than one unnerving viral problem in the US. Here’s a dangerous one: the spread of neurotic, unjustified, perpetual panic. The risk of getting seriously ill from COVID is, for people who are fully vaccinated, negligible. Be happy about this! Get out there! Go to a restaurant! See friends! Hug Granny! Instead, the United States of COVID is showing signs of turning into the Republic of Never-Ending Fear. People with large followings are painting a nightmare scenario of continuing misery. A shocking example is the ironically named MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid, who turns out to be joyless about the...

And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:(Hebrews 12:25-28)We are living in the time of shaking.

    Despite President Biden using an example of a collapsing bridge as a highlight of his pitch for his $2.6 trillion infrastructure proposal, only 5% of the money would be spent on building and repairing roads and bridges. Fox News' White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki why so little was allocated to this purpose. "We're trying to foster public support for the President's plan," she said. "As we learned from the COVID pandemic, raising the public's level of fear is a very persuasive tool. Crumbing pavement and decrepit bridges tap into this natural fear response in a...

    Discarded surgical masks strewn along the sidewalk aptly represent COVID-19’s lasting legacy. The federal medical bureaucracy’s response to the pandemic has resulted in a wasteland of lost economic and educational opportunities, psychologically damaged children, terminally lonely nursing home residents, and lives lost to suicide, illicit drug overdoses, and missed diagnoses.Thanks to the lockdowns, 140,104 businesses were temporarily closed and 97,966 were permanently closed by September 2020 according to a Yelp survey. Significantly, more than half of these were local small businesses—and small businesses employ nearly half of all American workers. Predictably, the workers who were most affected were not the...
