    As of Jan. 14, 2021, the Case Fatality Rate (CFR) — which is the percentage of Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. out of the total number of cases — is 1.33%, and which includes all people of all ages and conditions.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Tuesday threatened to essentially shut down a "post-nuclear Senate" as Democrats speed toward a potential vote on altering the Senate's 60-vote filibuster in the next week. "I think it's appropriate to ask: What would the Senate look like in a post-nuclear world?" McConnell said, referring to the "nuclear option" of creating a new Senate precedent with just 50 votes needed to allow passage of legislation.

    With the provincial capital of Xi’an still locked down more than two weeks after the start of its latest outbreak, the Chinese public has been shocked to see that despite the CCP’s “war-like” approach to combating COVID, the country hasn’t been spared from the latest global wave more than two years after the virus first burst out of Wuhan to infect the world. Making matters worse, the CCP are imposing new restrictions on the city of Tianjin, which is just a 30-minute drive from Beijing. The Chinese authorities on Monday confirmed 2 omicron cases in Tianjian, but suspect more than...

    Then-Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden’s main pledge throughout the year last year was that he was going to “shut down the virus.” He said it on campaign stops, during interviews, on social media, at debates, and the like that he would do what he claimed President Donald Trump wouldn’t and couldn’t do – comprehensively deal with the Wuhan virus pandemic. His eventual vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris made similar claims about what they would do about the coronavirus if they won the election.Prior to Election Day, though, they had an odd way of proving their supposed commitment to shutting...

    A left-wing protest in Washington, D.C., is blocking traffic in the nation's capital to demonstrate against an administration and lawmakers they believe have failed them by not delivering on various promises. The initiative, dubbed "Shutdown DC," is a joint effort from several activist organizations that are each conducting blockades at different spots near the Capitol building.

    Sadly, the childcare plan currently under consideration copies another of Obamacare’s design flaws, at least in its rollout: Many families will be ineligible for subsidies entirely before 2025. This means many families could face a $13,000 increase in childcare costs under this plan.

    Jean-Pierre made the comment during the White House daily press briefing in response to Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy, who asked why the Biden administration is "now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan" while oil and gas prices continue to skyrocket. "So, Peter, that is inaccurate," Jean-Pierre fired back. "That is not right. So any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate." "What’s inaccurate?" Doocy asked. "The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5," Jean-Pierre responded. "I didn’t say ‘wanting,’" Doocy said. "I said, is...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 11/8/2021 | Tom Gantert
    Fox News reported, “The Biden administration is reportedly weighing the potential market consequences of shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan. …” The pipeline, known as Line 5, is 30 inches in diameter and travels from Superior, Wisconsin, through both the Upper and Lower Peninsula of Michigan before ending in Sarnia, Ontario. According to Enbridge, which owns Line 5, closing the 645 mile-long pipeline would mean that Michigan would lose access to 756,000 gallons of propane a day, or 55% of the amount the company supplies to the state. Michigan's residential propane consumption is the nation's highest. About 315,000 homes...
  • Senate passes stopgap spending bill to avert government shutdown

    NY Post ^ | 09/30/2021 | Juliegrace Brufke
    The Senate passed a standalone continuing resolution aimed at averting a government shutdown on Thursday, which will keep the government funded until December. The House is expected to easily pass the measure later in the day ahead of current funding expiring at midnight. The stopgap bill includes language to keep the government funded through Dec. 3 — in addition to disaster relief funding and funding to aid with the resettlement of Afghan refugees. Its passage comes after Senate Republicans blocked a House-passed short-term spending bill that included language to raise the debt ceiling, saying they will not support increasing the...

    During his lengthy Sunday appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was asked about a host of issues. He was briefly asked by host Margaret Brennan about his country's strict lockdowns in the face of the Wuhan coronavirus, which he defended. As Brennan reminded the prime minister, "Australia is one of the few Western democracies that has really put in place some very, very strict COVID protocols. You shut down your borders 18 months ago," before going on to ask him "when will they reopen? Are you going to have vaccine passports? When will Australians be...

    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....

    Communities are being urged to practice social distancing, some schools are closing, sports and cultural events are being canceled, and companies are asking employees to work from home — even if they're not experiencing coronavirus symptoms. Many are wondering why they are essentially self-quarantined despite the fact that they're not sick. The answer has to do with "flattening the curve" — an answer that could leave some people confused... Measures like social distancing can help communities achieve that second line — a slower growth in the number of cases — so that they have more time and resources to care...

    A couple of California businesses are continuing their fight to prove Gov. Gavin Newsom unlawfully closed their doors amid the COVID-19 pandemic. California’s 5th District Court of Appeals heard remote arguments Thursday morning in Ghost Golf et al. vs. Newsom. Originally filed Oct. 28, 2020, the owners of the Fresno haunted house-themed miniature golf center claimed Newsom, with his “blueprint,” had overstepped the state’s separation of powers when he closed businesses and limited occupancy to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. A lower court sided with Newsom, saying the law allowed Newsom to take the steps he did without the blessing...

I have been threatened with "Consumer Action in Superior Court" due to allowing people to freely debate COVID-19 in the WRP forum. Clearly, this site cannot operate the way it has for the last 20 years in the era of COVID-19. I'm not going to get into the details here, but I'm just a guy with a hobby horse site, and I can't afford to put my family at further risk because COVID Nazis want to force people to...
