    Health officials in Norway are now warning “very frail” people that they should not take the COVID-19 inoculation because of dangerous side-effects from the experimental shots.... “So far, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has assessed 20 adverse reaction reports after the COVID-19 vaccination. 13 of these had a fatal outcome, shows a new report from the Norwegian Medicines Agency,” the translated report states. “If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated, said subject director Steinar Maden in the Norwegian Medicines Agency at a webinar on coronary vaccine for journalists on Thursday,” it continues. Negative side-effects from the vaccine...

    Of the 25 U.S. counties reporting the highest number of new cases during the current surge, 21 had mask mandates in place before August. Looking at the 100 counties with the most confirmed cases during this period, 97 had either a county-level mask mandate, a state-level mandate, or both. Of these 97 counties, 87 instituted their mandates prior to October.

  • The Atlantic Predicted an Iowa COVID ‘Tsunami’ to Discredit Governor — But It Never Materialized

    National Review ^ | 1/15/2021 | Tobias Hoonhout
    Iowa governor Kim Reynolds’s reluctance to embrace stringent coronavirus lockdown measures resulted in a case spike in November and guaranteed certain disaster over the holidays, according to an ominous story featured prominently on The Atlantic’s website in December. Titled “Iowa Is What Happens When Government Does Nothing,” the article, written by Iowa native Elaine Godfrey and published on December 3, attributed the brief statewide spike in cases and hospitalizations to Reynolds’s insistence on weighing economic factors when making decisions about COVID, and predicted that the state “can expect to see nothing less than a tsunami” over the upcoming holiday season.

    Trump’s now infamous suggestion that the country would eventually tire of all the winning has become a de rigueur joke among the smart set. “Aren’t you tired of all the winning?,” they laugh while presumably texting photos to their group chat of the violence at the Capitol last week.And it’s a fair bet they won’t give the Trump administration credit for their actual wins, even as the country settles back into the comfortable malaise of suffering under the new policies of an old guard that is disturbingly compromised by a nation most recently engaged in unleashing a designer virus on...
  • China’s Sinovac COVID-19 Vaccine Only 50 Percent Effective

    19FortyFive ^ | 1/14/2021 | Ethen Kim Lieser
    The coronavirus vaccine developed by China’s Sinovac Biotech has been found to be 50.4 percent effective in a late-stage Brazilian trial—falling far below the 78 percent level that was initially announced. While the percentage barely met the 50-percent threshold required for regulatory approval, the finding has only raised more concerns about the veracity of vaccine data put forth by Chinese companies.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took aim at California’s choking COVID-19 restrictions yesterday. He also scorched California Governor Gavin Newsom and other elite decision makers in the state who live by a different set of rules than the ones they order average Californians to obey. Rodgers, who is a California native, was a guest on “The Pat McAfee Show.” He took some time skewer how his home state is handling the pandemic.

    19FortyFive ^ | 1/14/2021 | Desmond Lachman
    It would be a gross understatement to say that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell faces a very difficult year ahead in meeting the Fed’s dual objective of low inflation and high employment. It is not only that the U.S. economic recovery is now stumbling during this darkest of Covid-19 winters at a time that unemployment remains troublingly high. Nor is it only that the recent Georgia Senate election has paved the way for another round of large-scale budget stimulus by the incoming Biden Administration at a time that of a record-high U.S. budget deficit. It is also that the Federal...

    Study Finds ^ | January 8, 2021 | Chris Melore
    From health to the economy, it’s no secret 2020 will go down as one of the most stressful years in recent memory for people around the world. So just how difficult was 2020? Enough that more than one in every six Americans entered therapy for the first time, according to a new survey. A OnePoll study of 2,000 adults reveals these new patients joined the 31 percent of Americans who either continued or returned to therapy during the last year. Researchers find 15 percent also began taking medication for mental health issues for the first time in 2020. Another 15...

    New York State Assembly Member Noah Nicholas Perry (D-Brookyn) has introduced legislation that would authorize Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to "order the detention of any person who poses an imminent and significant threat to the public health." "The governor has issued numerous decrees ordering folks to stay home, shutdown their businesses, stay out of church, always wear a mask, and refrain from family gatherings involving nonresidents of the home," Perry said. "Most people obey, but there are recalcitrant types who complain that they have a right to live as they please. The fines we have been levying are ineffective when...

    Local authorities in areas in and surrounding Beijing are increasingly imposing stringent lockdowns to curb the recent surge in new coronavirus cases. Despite its 1.4 billion population, China has largely stemmed new cases of domestic transmission of the virus, but recent reports have surfaced detailing that dozens of people have tested positive for the contagion in Hebei Province, which borders Beijing. That outbreak comes at a concerning time, as the nation ramps up preparations for next month’s Lunar New Year holiday.

Lisa Blount Rochester (D-DE) who was also not wearing a mask.Pelosi also allowed COVID-positive Dems on the House floor last week to vote for Speaker. Weird you don't mention that....

    The Center Square ^ | January 8, 2021 | Bethany Blankley
    In a year marred by death from an ongoing pandemic, 2020 also saw record overdose deaths. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that 2020 saw a record year-over-year number of opioid overdose deaths. More than 81,230 people died from a drug overdose between June 1, 2019, and May 31, 2020, the CDC provisional data shows. Revisions could drive that figure higher, the agency said. “This represents a worsening of the drug overdose epidemic in the United States and is the largest number of drug overdoses for a 12-month period ever recorded,” the CDC stated. The number of...

    Roughly one in every fifteen Americans have now tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Over the past weekend, the United States surpassed twenty-two million cases and 370,000 related deaths—both figures by far the highest among all countries. Health officials, however, are anticipating even darker days ahead despite the surge in cases and fatalities in recent weeks.

    ‘Hot Doctor’ Mikhail Varshavski has come under withering fire from his millions of followers after pictures of him ignoring his own advice by partying maskless on his birthday emerged. Varshavski — who has found Internet fame as Dr. Mike — has been in the vanguard of stressing the importance of wearing a mask to stop the spread of Covid-19. But he appeared to break all his own rules when it came to his 31st birthday party, for which he flew from New York to Miami on November 12 to celebrate. A picture of Varshavski on a boat in Sunset Harbor...

    The Blaze ^ | January 7, 2021 | Daniel Horowitz
    Nearly a year into this virus, it has become clear that, after up to a third of the people in this country already contracted it, according to some estimates, there is nothing we can do to stop it through non-pharmaceutical interventions. Yet, while the government and media continue to push the vaccine (and masks, of course) with religious fervor, they act as if natural infection itself confers little or no immunity. In reality, as with any virus, it likely confers more immunity than a vaccine. A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine by U.K. scientists tracked...

    Nearly 50% of U.S. voters believe public health officials have offered misleading information on the coronavirus pandemic over the last year, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Forty-eight percent of respondents said that public health leaders have "misrepresented the data" on the coronavirus since the pandemic began in early 2020. Just 34% said health officials have "reported the true facts" on the issue. The remaining 18% were unsure one way or the other...
