  1. This is only a fraction of such occurrences having been reported…

    “More than 10,000 COVID-19 infections among people who are fully vaccinated against the disease have been reported to a U.S. health agency by states.

    Through April 30, 10,262 so-called breakthrough infections were reported from 46 U.S. states and territories to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Breakthrough cases refer to cases appearing two or more weeks after a person’s final shot. That’s primarily the second Pfizer or Moderna dose, but can be the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

    Of the cases, more than six in 10 occurred in females, with the median patient age being 58, according to a new report from the CDC, which stopped counting breakthrough infections as of May 1, except for those that cause hospitalization or death.

    Approximately 10 percent of the patients required hospital care, and 160, or about 1.5 percent, died.”

  5. Fauci wouldn’t want to offend them. After all, they know all about his illegal funding of gain of function research at the Wuhan lab. So he’s a good little puppet.

    Great question though…. 🙂

  7. “It is time for the news business to admit that “fact-checking” is a tiresome, misleading, and dishonest blight on actual reporting.”

    The media’s “fact checks” are mostly garbage.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/fact-checking-the-fact-checkers

    “It hardly existed in Fleet Street when I left Britain in 1997. Checking facts was understood to be the core of a reporter’s job, not something sloughed off to someone else. Perhaps this was because British education was mostly essay writing, not checking multiple-choice boxes. Students quickly learn to write fluently when faced with blank sheets of foolscap and limited time to fill them. Quality obviously varied, but educated people were assumed to be capable of coherent composition.

    The residual challenge was knowing the facts or, in the case of reporters, finding them out. So, it was startling at first to encounter America’s bifurcated system, in which “fact-checkers” monitor reporters like gamekeepers trying to catch poachers. And it’s far worse now than it was back then. Fact-checking has grown beyond recognition in the past 25 years and chokes the news business like a parasitic vine.

    “Fact-checkers,” often employed by full-time “fact-checking” organizations, are widely granted weighty authority they haven’t earned and don’t deserve. Members of the fact-checker species are no more likely to be right than the reporters whose work they presume to judge. They are themselves often merely former reporters who reached their ceiling in real journalism, or else young novices who have still to learn how it’s done. Yet they’re accorded outsize gravitas. That’s why shallow would-be rebuttals that are really nothing more than opinion pieces are often labeled “fact checks.” Their stolen authority conceals rather than exposes the truth.

    Scratch a fact-checker and he’s just another guy lugging around his prejudices and thinking (like a grumpy reader) that a story is flat wrong just because it isn’t written the way he’d have written it. It’s more than a decade since I told my reporters not even to refer in their stories to fact-checkers’ findings. Because they’re irrelevant. That a fact-checker concludes X, Y, or Z usually reveals nothing useful.

    Yet fact-checking has spread like a nasty rash over the nether regions of our profession. The people conferring “pinocchios” and “pants on fire” ratings are as likely as not to base their decisions on criteria less related to accuracy than to personal taste, ideology, or slavish acceptance and imposition of a tyrannical orthodoxy.

    It is people of this caliber who hurled rhetorical ordure and accusations of falsehood down on the head of Sen. Tom Cotton and the rest of us who suggested that COVID-19 might have emerged from a coronavirus research lab in Wuhan, China, not from a nearby exotic foods market. This was logical, and I expect it will eventually be found to be true. But it contradicted Beijing’s narrative and agents and the left-wing media — perhaps I repeat myself — and former President Donald Trump mentioned it, so it had to be dismissed by the Washington Post, for example, as a “conspiracy theory” that had been “debunked.”

    The currency of “debunking” is so devalued that one can now say reliably only that it denotes something the supposed debunker disagreed with. Actual debunking admits of no compromise. A story cannot be undebunked. A story from which a fact-checker withdraws a “pants on fire” rating, as PolitiFact did recently after the New York Times broke ranks on the Wuhan lab theory, is one that was never shown to be wrong and was instead simply defamed. The people checking the facts made faulty assumptions and sloppy decisions of exactly the type they profess themselves suited to guard against. It’s that bad.”

    “‘Dad will be there but keep that between us for now’: Emails reveal Joe Biden DID meet with Hunter’s foreign business partners while he was VP during a dinner organized by his son to introduce potential clients to his powerful father”

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9622767/Emails-reveal-Joe-Biden-DID-meet-Hunters-business-partners-VP.html

    “Emails from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop reveal Joe Biden had dinner with his son’s Ukrainian, Russian, and Kazakhstani business partners while he was VP

    According to correspondence obtained by DailyMail.com Hunter arranged for a dinner at Café Milano’s private Garden Room, in Georgetown, on April 15, 2015

    The guest list included corrupt, late former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov and his wife, Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina, and a Mexican ambassador

    In an email to Michael Karloutsos, son of the then-head of the Greek Orthodox Church, Hunter wrote that the event was ‘ostensibly to discuss food security’

    ‘Dad will be there but keep that btw us for now,’ he said, referring to Joe, in an email dated March 26, 2015”

    “Joe Biden met with his son’s Russian, Ukrainian and Kazakhstani business associates while vice president, emails show.

    Hunter Biden wrote to a friend before the 2015 Washington DC dinner that it was ‘ostensibly to discuss food security’, but was in fact an opportunity to introduce his potential clients and partners to his powerful father.

    The shocking communications appear to fly in the face of the president’s claim that he had no knowledge of his son’s business activities.”

    “Biden’s plan for a diplomatic mission to the Palestinians blatantly violates US law”

    https://nypost.com/2021/05/26/bidens-plan-for-diplomatic-mission-to-the-palestinians-violates-us-law/

    “As presidential candidate, Joe Biden was asked if he would reverse President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem. Biden promised, “I wouldn’t reverse it.”

    But candidate Biden also proposed re-opening the US diplomatic mission to the Palestinians in Jerusalem, which had merged with the Jerusalem embassy in 2019.

    Now Team Biden is moving forward with the latter initiative. On May 25, Secretary of State Antony Blinken formally told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that Washington would seek to reopen this diplomatic mission. The move contradicts Biden’s campaign promise not to renege on the recognition of Jerusalem, since a pair of missions in the same city undercuts Jerusalem’s status as Israel’s capital. It also breaks the Jerusalem Embassy Act that sought to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem no later than 1999 — a law Biden voted for along with 92 other senators.

    The 1995 law states that “Jerusalem should remain an undivided city, in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected. … Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel.” In 2017, on the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification in the Six Day War, the Senate unanimously voted to reaffirm the act and called upon the US to “abide by its provisions.”

    Former President Donald Trump fulfilled the will of the American people, as expressed by Congress, by relocating the embassy in 2018. In February 2021, the Senate also adopted an amendment by a 97-3 vote to “make the US Embassy in Jerusalem permanent, effectively preventing it from being downgraded or moved out of Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.”

    The Biden administration’s intent to reopen a separate diplomatic mission to the Palestinians in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital and the location of the US Embassy, would be a violation of US law, wrongly signaling that Washington supports dividing Jerusalem.

    If implemented, this could signal the return to a misguided diplomatic arrangement, under which the US ambassador to Israel historically lacked jurisdiction over the eastern part of Jerusalem, the West Bank or Gaza. Instead, a US consul general led a separate diplomatic mission to the Palestinians, who had jurisdiction over those geographic areas. The consulate general didn’t even report to the US ambassador to Israel, but directly to the State Department, often sending conflicting reports to DC.

    The diplomatic mission included the US consulate general’s official residence, located in the western part of Jerusalem, thus resulting in the US having a diplomatic mission to the Palestinians in Jerusalem, despite that the fact that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.

    The Trump administration’s decision to merge the US diplomatic mission to the Palestinians into the US Embassy in Jerusalem remedied the prior arrangement and implemented a key aspect of the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which requires that the US Embassy in Jerusalem include the ambassador’s official residence.

    Reopening this separate diplomatic mission to the Palestinians would therefore render the US government noncompliant with American law. It would also contradict Biden’s campaign promise to keep the US Embassy in Jerusalem, recreate major inefficiencies having two conflicting US diplomatic missions in the same city and revive what was an ideologically pro-Palestinian office in the heart of Israel’s capital.”
