    Dr. Anthony Fauci walked back his comment that the US was no longer in the “pandemic phase” of COVID-19 — the latest jumbled messaging from President Biden’s chief medical adviser on the coronavirus. Biden administration officials and Fauci were scrambling Wednesday to emphasize that the country is still in the midst of a pandemic and that emergency measures are still needed after Fauci told PBS the precise opposite. “Here we are. It’s the end of April. It’s the spring of 2022. How close are we to the end of the pandemic?” Judy Woodruff of “PBS NewsHour” asked Fauci Tuesday.

    Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has issued a statement to India Today clarifying the rubles for gas mandate that has created confusion among Russia’s gas buyers, RT has reported on Tuesday. Buyers purchasing Russia’s gas will have to pay Gazprombank, an independent institution. -snip- Buyers can still, therefore, pay in the currency of their choice. But Gazprombank will convert the payment into rubles. Gazprom would then be able to access the funds in rubles, assured that those funds would not be subject to sanctions. “They won’t be able to keep this money in their banks. They will still pay in...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) nor his office could explain to Breitbart News why Utah’s junior senator opposed making Ketanji Brown Jackson a federal circuit judge last year and then voiced his support for her to become a Supreme Court Justice this year. Romney joined the 43 other Senate Republicans in 2021 to oppose Jackson’s bid to become a circuit judge for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    President Joe Biden announced his decision to ban oil imports from Russia at the White House on Tuesday, just days after his administration argued against the idea. “We will not be part of subsidizing Putin’s war,” Biden said, painting the decision as a moral one after Russian president Vladimir Putin escalated his war in Ukraine.

    Just under five years ago more than half of the Democrats currently in the Senate signed a letter defending the 60-vote filibuster on legislation – but now many of them are leading the charge to eliminate it as soon as this weekend. "Reality changed," Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said when asked what is different in 2022 compared with 2017, when she was among the signers of the letter led by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Chris Coons, D-Del. -------------- Sen. Mazie Hirono said "reality changed" between 2017 and 2022, which is why she now opposes the Senate filibuster. (AP Photo/Julio...

    You can have a holly, jolly Christmas with your relatives after all, Dr. Anthony Fauci now says. President Biden’s chief medical adviser offered a second opinion Monday of his own humbug diagnosis after saying a day earlier it was “too soon” to tell whether Americans should gather with their loved ones for the holidays. “I will be spending Christmas with my family,” Fauci told CNN. “I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family.” On Sunday, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) chief was asked by CBS...
  • Cuomo replacement Kathy Hochul flip-flopped on driver's licenses for illegal immigrants

    In 2007, New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul – who will take over as governor when Cuomo resigns in two weeks – said she was vehemently against illegal immigrants getting driver's licenses. Hochul, who was the Erie County clerk at the time, even went so far as to proclaim that she would arrest any illegal immigrants who applied for licenses at one of the offices she oversaw for the Empire State. By 2018, however, Hochul had reversed on the issue. She blasted a county clerk that year for vowing to deny driver's licenses to illegal immigrants despite changes to state...
  • The Government's Ham-Handed COVID-19 Messaging Has Hit a New Low

    The U.S. government's inconsistent public messaging on the coronavirus came to a crescendo this week as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention abruptly reversed course on the use of masks by vaccinated people. The sudden backtracking follows a pattern of misleading and incoherent government health guidance that has led to a general erosion of trust in the CDC. Trust is, of course, paramount in a free country when trying to help the public make decisions about health matters. Our government does not seem to understand this simple concept. Faced with a once-in-a-lifetime global pandemic that caused millions of deaths...
  • Fauci blasted for saying 'no doubt' children 3 years and older should wear masks

    White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci drew criticism Tuesday after saying children as young as 3 years old should continue to wear masks to protect against the coronavirus. Asked by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell about the spread of the Delta variant of the virus and what that means for unvaccinated minors, Fauci said they and their parents should follow federal health advice. In its guidelines for safely opening K-12 schools in the fall, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says "masks should be worn indoors by all individuals (age 2 and older) who are not fully vaccinated." "Unvaccinated children...

    Last year, Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed there was “no scientific evidence the coronavirus was made in a Chinese lab.” “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated … Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species,” Fauci said at the time in an interview with National Geographic. “If you accept the premise, which is very strongly supported by scientific evidence, that it was...

    Anthony Fauci, President Biden’s chief medical adviser, said Thursday that schools in the fall should be open “full blast” five days a week after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 resume life without masks or other restrictions. When asked by host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” if he agreed with CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and the president of the American Federation of Teachers that schools in the fall should be 100 percent open and in-person five days a week, Fauci said he did. “Yeah. I...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday the nation’s most populous state would stop requiring people to wear masks in almost all circumstances on June 15, describing a world he said will look “a lot like the world we entered into before the pandemic.” “We’re not wearing face coverings. We’re not restricted in any way, shape or form from doing the old things that we used to do, save for huge, large-scale indoor convention events like that, where we use our common sense,” Newsom said in an interview with Fox 11′s Elex Michaelson.

    “Late Show,” White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that people who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus can transmit the virus, but there’s recent data that says the amount of virus that people who have been vaccinated have is “extremely low. And I think a couple of months from now, I might modify that statement and say it would be extremely unusual that you would transmit it. But right now, just to be careful, wear a mask.” Host Stephen Colbert asked, “If you’ve been vaccinated, can you give the virus to others, and should you still wear...

    Politicians saying one thing and doing another is a story as old as, well… politics. Some examples are a bit more egregious than others, however. Take for example the burgeoning raft of executive orders being signed by President Biden during his first week in office. Did you know that there was a time when Status Quo Joe didn’t really sound like a fan of circumventing the normal legislative process and ruling by the pen and the phone? Yes, yes… I know what you’re thinking. It’s really not fair to dig up some dusty old quote from a politician that was...

    The COVID cases in New York State hit a new record high last week. Over 15,000 new cases were reported nearly every day last week. Despite this Governor Cuomo announced on Monday it was time to reopen the state. Cuomo said, “We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass.” If the disease is so horrible why would he reopen the state now? So what changed? Is Cuomo convinced the coup is in place? Does he believe China Joe will be inaugurated next week? Why else would he call off the lockdown. These are bad people we are...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Democratic nominee Joe Biden denied he supported the Green New Deal being pushed by his own campaign’s climate change panel during Tuesday night’s first presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio. “The Green New Deal is not my plan,” the Democratic nominee told Fox News moderator Chris Wallace of the sweeping agenda which calls for the US to meet 100 percent renewable energy while creating millions of high-paying jobs. “Do you support the Green New Deal?” Wallace pressed the former veep during the chaotic match-up which frequently devolved into shouting matches between Biden and President Trump. “No, I don’t...

    Alternate headline: Candidate checks electoral map, discovers why Pennsylvania’s called the Keystone State. At least Kamala Harris didn’t try to pretend that this was her position all along, as Joe Biden has for the last few weeks, but that doesn’t make this flip-flop much less crass. CNN’s Dana Bash sets this up as comfortably as possible for Harris, who now calls a fracking ban a “false choice” — even though Harris demanded one while campaigning last year: BASH: President Trump, Vice President Pence, they have been campaigning more and more on the issue of fracking, which is a process...

    A week ago, Joe Biden notoriously flip-flopped on his long-held anti-fracking position while campaigning in Pennsylvania, where fracking is a major industry. “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me,” he said. Unfortunately for him, there was ample evidence that he’s promised to end fracking if elected president. Now that polls have tightened, and Trump and Biden are now tied in the state of Pennsylvania (a crucial swing state) Kamala Harris, who also campaigned on banning fracking, has also now flip-flopped on the...

    One of the most highly contentious issues of the 2020 presidential cycle is whether it will be safe for Americans to vote in person on November 3, 2020. For weeks Democrats have held up crucial Wuhan coronavirus relieve packages while demanding billions of dollars for the Post Office in order to bolster mass mail in voting. In California, a state without voter identification laws and outdated registration records, Governor Gavin Newsom plans to mail every registered voter a ballot ahead of election day. Recent elections in New York, New Jersey and West Virginia have proven mass mail in voting schemes...
