    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended President Joe Biden for failing to wear a mask on federal land, despite signing a mandate ordering Americans to do so. Biden and members of his family appeared at the Lincoln Memorial Wednesday evening without masks, despite the president signing a mask mandate for federal property earlier in the afternoon. On Thursday, Biden also spoke and signed executive orders at the White House without wearing a mask. “He was surrounded by his family, we take a number of precautions but I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in...

    Former President Bill Clinton struggled to keep his mask on during President Joe Biden’s inauguration Wednesday and some on Twitter said the tiny covering, which had silver stars on it, looked like it was purchased from Claire’s. Photos and videos of the 74-year-old, who attended the inauguration with wife Hillary Clinton and appeared to fall asleep at one point, show his mask repeatedly slipping beneath his nose, and at other times, riding up and over his mouth toward his eyes as he tried to talk.

    When Gabriel Rench recounts being arrested in front of city hall in Moscow, Idado, while singing hymns with his church last September, one detail especially continues to irk him. “They literally took my hymn book away from me and proceeded to handcuff me,” Rench, 41, said of the officers, who then led him away to the county jail, where he remained for several hours. Moscow, a town of about 25,000 people approximately 80 miles south of Spokane, Washington, made national news last fall when local police arrested three people and cited five others for attending a “peaceful protest” against the...

    Police in Moscow, Idaho, arrested three people Wednesday for violating social distancing rules as their church sang hymns and Bible psalms outdoors — an event held, in part, to protest the city mayor’s mask mandate, which runs to January 2021. Officers arrested Gabriel Rench, Rachel Bohnet, and Sean Bohnet, according to Moscow Report, a local independent news outlet. A video uploaded to social media shows Bohnet, a local music teacher, and his wife telling officers they refused to comply with an inaudible order. Moscow Report says the apparent infraction is that they refused to show identification. Footage of the couple’s...

    "This is a great day in our household. This is not a political statement. This is a statement of unity," Brooks said. He wouldn't divulge which songs he was considering playing but added that he won't be playing "We Shall Be Free" as he played it during President Obama's 2008 inauguration. Brooks was also asked to perform during President Trump's 2016 inauguration, but mentioned that he couldn't do it as he had a tour date. Prior to Monday's announcement, Brooks had three dates on his touring calendar, beginning with a Feb. 27 show in Las Vegas, where he's scheduled to...

    Pennsylvania reported 6,047 new COVID-19 infections on Friday, a hopeful sign the state won’t see a repeat of the December surge that brought twice that number of new infections daily. The state reported 215 deaths — a relatively high figure but, since people usually die weeks after being infected, one that’s likely a delayed result of the earlier surge. As of Friday morning, 4,848 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, another downward trend and well below the December peak when more than 6,300 were hospitalized. Still, state health officials this week continued to stress the need to wear face masks, avoid...

    On Oct. 18, 2020, Twitter banned the account of Dr. Scott Atlas for defending President Donald Trump’s position on mask mandates. In his tweet, he cited scientific studies, and the tweet contained absolutely no false information. Also in October, Twitter banned the account of The New York Post for accurately reporting on a story about Hunter Biden’s laptop. Today we know these were just the first salvos in this evil company’s assault on American liberty. For all its talk about safety, community, and the health of discourse, we see today that Twitter acts in favor of one interest and one...

    The entire pretext for shutting down our liberties is built upon misinformation.. We are being told that our liberties must be suspended in order to keep hospitals from reaching apocalyptic levels. But what if those levels are just above normal and not anywhere near apocalyptic levels? And what if these lockdown measures do nothing to keep the levels down anyway? Well, if there is anywhere we can cross-check this hypothesis, it would be in Florida, where there is no lockdown or mask mandate. In fact, people are flocking there from out of state to enjoy vacations and host conferences and...

    For months, we've been lectured to by the political elites that cases of coronavirus are spreading too quickly and that we must wear masks to stop the spread. The obvious fault with their act of desperation is that they can no longer mask the fact that most parts of the country have already been fully masked for months — long before the ubiquitous spread this fall. Researchers at RationalGround.com, a clearinghouse of COVID-19 data trends run by a grassroots group of data analysts, computer scientists, and actuaries, did an analysis of all 50 states divided by those that had mask...

    Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration refiled an emergency COVID-19 rule similar to one that expired Monday to continue statewide mask and social distancing requirements for Illinoisans for another 150 days. ... “Any individual who is over age two and able to medically tolerate a face covering (a mask or cloth face covering) shall be required to cover their nose and mouth with a face covering when in a public place and unable to maintain at least a six-foot social distance,” the rule states. “This requirement applies whether in an indoor space, such as a store, or in an outdoor space.”

    A Wickenburg, Arizona mom is in very hot water after allegedly beating her kids and stepchildren because they went maskless after testing positive for the novel coronavirus, officials said. Sarah Michelle Boone, 32, has a previous record for domestic abuse. She was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and three counts each of child abuse and assault, court charging documents obtained Thursday by The Associated Press show. Wickenburg police responded on Saturday, Dec. 26 around 7 p.m. to the woman’s house last weekend after a complaint was called in. She allegedly kicked a boy while he was on the floor,...

    Issues & Insights ^ | December 29, 2020 | I & I Editorial Board
    A poll out last week found that 75% of Americans say they support a nationwide mask mandate to fight COVID-19. Why shouldn’t they, since the public has been told repeatedly by politicians and public health officials that these steps will slow the spread of the disease and save lives. Yet new research provides clear evidence that – whatever the lab results of mask-wearing and disease spread might suggest – real-world mask mandates do little, if anything, to slow COVID-19. The survey, conducted by STAT and the Harris Poll, found there is a partisan split on a mask mandate: 60% of...

    Just before the end of 2020, the NCAA has gone ahead and done maybe the most 2020 thing ever. The NCAA has filed a trademark for the term “Mask Madness,” as a way to promote the wearing of masks during the Division I men’s basketball tournament known as “March Madness.” “The National Collegiate Athletic Association made the filing on Dec. 23,” Sporting News reports. “According to the filing, the NCAA wants to use the term both to promote public awareness about the benefits of wearing masks, along with advertising and marketing around masks as a protection of viral infections.

So, she went to Jeffery P. Davis Automotive in Murray.(snip) After the tires were put on her car, Taylor says she went to pay, and noticed the receptionist wasn’t wearing a mask. “She was coughing,” said Taylor. “I had a mask on.

    As the promise of a COVID-19 vaccine is fulfilled amid the rollout of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, the need to continue wearing masks, washing your hands and maintaining social distancing remains mission critical to protecting lives. Public health measures have been the main tools at preventing infection and transmission of the virus. Wearing a face mask can reduce an individual's risk of infection by 70%. With emergency use authorization of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, there is an opportunity to further decrease the risk of illness due to COVID-19.

A 53% majority of voters, meanwhile, said they'd feel comfortable discarding their masks in three to six months (14%), more than six...
