    “Judge blocks medical worker vaccine mandate in NY state”

    https://wbng.com/2021/09/14/judge-blocks-medical-worker-vaccine-mandate-in-ny-state-2/

    “A federal judge has temporarily blocked the state of New York from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of health care workers sued, saying their Constitutional rights were violated.

    Judge David Hurd in Utica issued the order Tuesday after 17 health professionals, including doctors and nurses, claimed that their rights were violated with a vaccine mandate that disallowed religious exemptions.

    The judge gave New York state until Sept. 22 to respond to the lawsuit in federal court in Utica.”

  4. Follow the science, interesting concept. What is science and where does it lead? And who gets to decide what is the science? Spontaneous generation was the science at one time. It ebbs, it flows.

  5. 8:03 Thank you, judge – may God protect you and your loved ones.

    Nowhere in the Constitution is anyone – governors, presidents, or anyone else – given authority to mandate anything. (Even legislative mandates must be constitutional.) So ALL mask mandates and vaccination mandates are illegal, regardless of who issues them.

  6. These mandates are going to decimate the health care industry.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/texas-hospital-faces-closure-over-covid-19-vaccine-mandate-ceo_3998746.html

    “The chief executive of a hospital in Texas warned that his facility faces closure after President Joe Biden’s announcement last week that most healthcare workers get the COVID-19 vaccine.

    If the mandate goes through, Brownfield Regional Medical Center CEO Jerry Jasper said that “20 percent of my, probably 20 to 25 percent of my staff will have to go away if that’s the case,” reported KCBD. Losing those workers, he said, would likely cause his hospital to shut down, and losing Medicare and Medicaid money isn’t an option either.

    A White House stipulates that healthcare workers who work at hospitals and facilities that receive either Medicaid or Medicare funds will have to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

    “It’s huge in our rural community as all the other rural communities. We all have high poverty levels and stuff like that, so a lot of Medicaid usage in our communities and stuff like that,” Jasper remarked to the station.

    Another local hospital executive said that the mandate echoed Jasper’s sentiments.

    “Well, it would be devastating for the community, frankly. We have a large percentage of our revenue that comes from Medicare, Medicaid, and those kinds of products,” Larry Gray, the CEO of the Seminole Hospital District, told the station.

    While Gray said he encourages vaccines, mandates don’t work.

    “I think the mandate is just a terrible message because if the vaccinations are working, why do you have to mandate people to get the vaccines?” Gray asked. “What happens to individual choice and medical decisions between the patient and their doctor, which is all of the things that we’re trying to support.””

  7. When you know Biden won’t do anything, and the press will run cover for him, what does he have to fear?

    He should be stripped of rank, his retirement, and face immediate discharge and prosecution.

  15. Congressional leaders and top security officials say the U.S. Capitol will be well-prepared for a far-right rally expected for the area on Saturday, including plans to reinstall perimeter fencing that was up for months after the Jan. 6 insurrection.

    This weekend’s rally will present law enforcement officials with the first large-scale security test to the Capitol since the attack on the complex by a pro-Trump mob.

    On Saturday, right-wing demonstrators plan to protest the ongoing criminal cases tied to individuals charged after the deadly riot. The weekend rally has drawn the attention of far-right extremist groups, The Associated Press has reported.

    Monday’s vote of confidence in Capitol security plans came following a security briefing for the top Democratic and Republican leaders in each chamber by Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger and House Sergeant-at-Arms William Walker. Both Manger and Walker were installed in their posts after their predecessors were forced to resign following the Jan. 6 attack.

    “They seem very, very well-prepared, much better prepared than before Jan. 6,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said. “And I think they are ready for whatever might happen.”

    “Angered by feds’ heavy hand, lawmaker wants New Hampshire to vote on seceding from U.S.

    Constitutional amendment would be on 2022 ballot if approved.”

    https://justthenews.com/nation/states/lawmaker-wants-new-hampshire-declare-independence

    “ANew Hampshire lawmaker is pushing for a referendum asking the state’s voters if they want to secede from the United States.

    State Rep. Mike Sylvia, a Belmont Republican, said he has filed a proposed constitutional amendment that would ask voters in the 2022 midterm elections to break ties with Washington, D.C., and become a separate nation-state.

    In an interview, Sylvia said he filed the measure in response to the federal government’s actions to prevent spread of the coronavirus, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s eviction ban and more recently President Joe Biden’s mandate requiring federal workers to get vaccinated.

    “There are hundreds of examples of the federal government overstepping its authority,” he told The Center Square. “Enough is enough. We should put this before the voters to decide.”

    He said while succession would likely mean a loss of federal funding and other support from Washington, there would also be benefits for New Hampshire’s residents, such as not having to pay a federal income tax. New Hampshire has no state income tax.

    “We are a donor state that pays out more in federal income taxes than what we get back,” Sylvia said.

    If cleared for the ballot, the referendum would read: “New Hampshire peaceably declares independence from the United States and immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation. All other references to the United States in this constitution, state statutes, and regulations are nullified.”

    The long shot proposal, which was filed with the Office Of Legislative Services, would need to be considered in the next legislative session that gets underway in January.”

    Their bias is as obvious as it is one sided.

    “Facebook Blocks Ad For Song Critical of Biden’s Afghanistan Withdrawal”

    https://freebeacon.com/media/facebook-blocks-ad-for-song-critical-of-bidens-afghanistan-withdrawal/

    “Facebook blocked an ad that promoted a song critical of President Joe Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal, raising questions about how it applies its advertising rules.

    The social media giant twice prohibited Five For Fighting’s John Ondrasik from purchasing an ad to promote his new single “Blood On My Hands.” Facebook claimed the song, which slams the Biden administration for abandoning hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies, “violated their policy on either politics or social issues.” The song singles out Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.

    Facebook’s advertising policies state that “Ads must not contain content that exploits crises or controversial political or social issues for commercial purposes.” But the company frequently allows political ads on its platform. A cursory review shows Facebook hosted multiple ads from Black Lives Matter and leftist organization Demand Justice promoting abortion and calling for checks on police. A Wall Street Journal report found that Facebook maintains a list of almost six million public figures who are exempted from content moderation regulations.

    Facebook’s content moderation has received increased scrutiny from Congress as part of a broader concern over how big tech companies shape discourse on their platforms. GOP lawmakers have called for regulations that would ban discrimination based on the viewpoint of the user. Some lawmakers, and Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, have suggested that massive social media companies should be classified as “common carriers,” meaning they would not be allowed to bar legal speech based on their own moderation policies.

    Tech companies have come under fire for enforcing rules aggressively against conservatives. After a pressure campaign from pro-choice activists, Google on Tuesday removed all ads from pro-life group Live Action. Many of the banned ads promoted a pill that reverses the effects of an abortion pill if taken quickly enough. Google hosts thousands of ads for the abortion pill.”

  20. Mumsee — the beautiful thing about science is that its peer reviewed and can change. Although its true there’s a bias toward conforming to the current paradigm, the scientific method ensures that science wins out in the end. Sometimes it takes awhile — the geocentric conception of the solar system went through extremes contortion to adapt to data unitl it finally crashed and the heliocentric model gained acceptance.

    The concept of natural vaccines and immunity has been around for centuries. Adapting it to modern science has been over 200 hundred years yet in all this time it has worked. In terms of covid, the continuous collection of data indicates it still works. When 20% of the population has 80% of the cases, we know that their lack of vaccine is the problem. And when they occupy hospital beds that are needed for others simply because they refuse to take a vaccine; they are ignoring science and ignoring the effect their actions have.

  22. As I stated yesterday; Milley and others conversing with China is no surprised. It occurred during the Cold War when countries wanted to make sure others knew the gov’t was stable and someone was in charge even though it was going through a transition. From various accounts, Nov to Jan there appeared to be nobody in charge at the White House. Trump was solely focused on “stop the steal” and had lost any motivation to actually govern. China and other countries have intell and were well aware of the power vacuum. Milley, Esper, et al needed to make sure China knew the US was stable and adults were in charge — and thus China should not try to take advantage of the power vacuum.

    If the same chaotic situation occurred in 2016, the same back channels would be employed. If I recall correctly, Eric Prince and Jared Kushner were using back channels in Jan 2017 to talk to Putin prior to Trump’s inauguration. If the chief of staffs thought Obama wasn’t paying attention in Dec. 2016 and used to backchannels to impress Putin and Xi that the US was stable and adults were in charge — I’m sure most Trump supporters would see no problems. Milley only overstepped in someone was still in charge and all indications are that the Trump admin had fallen apart — either they were involved in “stop the steal” or they were trying to find work in the post Trump part of their careers.

    The real issue for me is the archaic two month gap between election and inauguration. Once a victor has been declared and the loser concedes, the incoming president should immediately take charge. The two month gap may have been appropriate 200 years ago but its far too risky in the modern era

  23. Mask and vaccines mandates have a long history in various countries including the US. There are past precedents including a Supreme Court decision approving small pox vaccines. We have decades of vaccine requirements for schools. Workplaces have wide latitude in determining health and safety rules. Eventually a vaccine and mask mandate will land in the Supreme Court and unless they ignore precedent and 200 years of public health regulations they will have to vote to uphold the vaccines.

    California was always going to vote No. It was a massive waste of money. And California did indeed vote for mask and vaccine mandates; they knew Newsome approved and so did they. There’s an interesting graphic map that shows the correlation between the Yes vote and Covid outbreaks. The people who vote No live in areas with lower covid rates and they wanted public health measures to keep it low. It was a vote in favour of public health.

    There’s no link between the FBI’s handling of the gymnastic sex abuse scandal and Russia investigation. But there’s a link between the FBI’s handling and general police ineptitude around sexual abuse claims. Instead of trying to leverage a sex abuse scandal for political gain or to smear the FBI for its work elsewhere, politicians need to work to prevent this stupidity from once again occurring. This happens from too often in police forces everywhere and needs to be corrected and this won’t happen if people insist on tying this to politics.

    The twitter storm over media exemption from a tax is an example of selection. I’m sure somewhere in that massive bill I can find exemptions elsewhere for other sectors and lobby groups. People select a part that they want to blow up but then ignore the real issue — the massive length of bills that have far too specific exemptions or beneficiaries a process that easily opens itself to corruption in far more ways than simply thanking the press for nice coverage. I also do wonder about the premise of the twitter storm — local news is far more conservative than national news organizations — so I’m not sure the Democrats are thanking someone for favorable coverage.
