  2. Well gee, why not?

    “WHO: No, we won’t tell you how many of us are vaccinated”

    https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2021/09/18/who-no-we-wont-tell-you-how-many-of-us-are-vaccinated-n416753

    “The World Health Organization, a subsidiary of the United Nations, has been trying to lead the way on global vaccination policy during the COVID pandemic. They are keen to see as many people as possible be vaccinated and they keep close track of the progress in nations across the world. They are also quick to note how many vaccinations take place and scold more economically prosperous nations for taking care of their own people before sending more doses to less developed countries. But when it comes to vaccination rates and vaccine hesitancy, how well are the people at the WHO doing themselves? How many of them and their staffers have rolled up their sleeves to set a good example for the rest of the planet? We don’t know because they are refusing to tell us. That sort of medical information is “private,” you see. (Associated Press)

    The United Nations’ health agency, which has repeatedly urged the world to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and other illnesses, on Friday declined to say how many of its own staffers have followed that advice.

    “We won’t have that because it’s confidential,” said Dr. Margaret Harris, a World Health Organization spokeswoman.

    Referring to United Nations personnel, U.N. Geneva spokeswoman Alessandra Vellucci said: “We don’t disclose this kind of information. It’s something that is said to the medical service. So, no, unfortunately, we won’t be able to give you these numbers.”

    Curiously, after saying that “we won’t be able to give you these numbers,” the Geneva spokeswoman turned around and said she would “look into whether percentages of U.N. staff that had been vaccinated could be provided.” What does that even mean? Either there’s a policy in place or there isn’t, right? Wouldn’t they have gone and checked on the actual policy before coming out and commenting on it?

    Or was Ms. Vellucci implying that they wouldn’t be able to give the specific numbers for the WHO but might be able to provide them for the entire United Nations? That seems even less plausible. The only other thing that comes to mind is the possibility that she couldn’t give a raw number but might be able to provide a percentage. But even then, it’s not that hard to find the total number of people employed by the WHO. A percentage would still lead you to the number if you can do basic math.

    Far more likely is the possibility that the WHO just doesn’t want the public snooping around regarding their own vaccination rates. If their own hesitancy rate is higher than that of some of the countries they are barking at, their position as the world’s hall monitor is severely undermined. That’s the same thing we see in governments and organizations everywhere these days, though. They are the first to preach to you about the importance of getting vaccinated, tracking vaccination rates, and scolding areas where the numbers are too low. (Unless we’re talking about an area with a lot of minority residents, in which case it’s simply “unfortunate.”) But when you ask them how they are doing in getting everyone vaccinated in their own offices, it’s suddenly personal information.”

  3. So the FBI’s Jan6 rally this weekend was a disaster. The only attendees were the police, feds, and press. 🙂

    Idiots. Trump supporters know a set-up when they see one. Try harder.

    But that didn’t stop the press from cranking out more fear porn…..

    Why? Because they’re useless trash cranking out useless trash.

  5. And people fall for this junk….?

    What a bunch of rubes….

    “AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ dress designer Aurora James owes debt in multiple states”

    https://nypost.com/2021/09/18/aocs-tax-the-rich-dress-designer-aurora-james-is-a-tax-deadbeat/

    “Designer Aurora James called her “Tax the Rich” dress for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “powerful message” — but it’s not one she has taken to heart.

    The 37-year-old fashionista who made waves at the Met Gala with Democratic-Socialist AOC last week is a notorious tax deadbeat with unpaid debts dogging her in multiple states, records show.

    Most of luxe-living James’ arrears center on Cultural Brokerage Agency, an LLC she formed in 2011 to serve as the parent company of her fashion brand, which today is known as Brother Vellies. It’s a favorite of people like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Meghan Markle.

    The company racked up three open tax warrants in New York state for failing to withhold income taxes from employees’ paychecks totaling $14,798, the state Department of Taxation and Finance told The Post. The debts — which were incurred before the pandemic — stem from 2018 and 2019. The company has been hit with 15 warrants in total since 2015.

    The company got into a deeper hole with the feds. Between April 2018 and April 2019, the Internal Revenue Service placed six federal liens on Cultural Brokerage Agency totaling $103,220. The liens specifically cite the company’s failure to remit employee payroll taxes.

    The IRS declined to comment on their current status.”

  9. So why just Haitians???????

    The United States has started flying migrants out of a Texas border town that has seen an influx of mostly Haitian migrants over the past week.
    Three flights landed at Haiti’s Port-au-Prince airport on Sunday, each carrying 145 people, the Associated Press (AP) reports.
    About 13,000 would-be immigrants have gathered under a bridge connecting Del Rio in Texas to Mexico’s Ciudad Acuña.
    They have been waiting in a makeshift camp in temperatures of 37C (99F).
    An emergency US public health order known as Title 42 allows authorities to expel most migrants before they can claim asylum.
    Local officials have struggled to provide those in Del Rio with food and adequate sanitation.

    Tom Cartwright, of the advocacy group Witness at the Border, who tracks US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) flights, told Reuters three flights left Texas – one from Laredo and two from San Antonio – on Sunday carrying Haitians back to Haiti.

  11. But it’s mean to point it out, right?

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2021/09/20/biden-has-lost-the-middlebut-a-lingering-question-remains-n2596151

    “The man is lost in space. He’s weak. He’s stupid. He’s slow. And he simply cannot do the job. There’s too much. President Dementia just doesn’t have the stamina. You can’t govern from the basement, Joe. You can’t. Everything you promised has devolved into a smoldering pile of crap. The adults are not back. Diplomacy is not back. America is not back. And you didn’t stop COVID. The French are recalling their ambassador because of a defense pact you signed off on with Australia and the United Kingdom; the former will be acquiring nuclear-powered submarines. The Afghanistan fiasco pissed off everyone in Europe, with the special relationship we have with London sinking to its lowest point since the Suez Crisis in the 1950s. You also left Americans behind and then blamed them. You proudly said that terrorists were taken out with a drone strike. That was a lie. It was an aid worker and his family. Who gave them this intelligence that this family was a terror target—the Taliban? It would not shock me since we gave them lists of Americans and key Afghan allies when we quasi-deputized them to be the TSA at the Kabul airport in the waning days of our deployment there. It didn’t cross these peoples’ minds that these are ‘kill lists.’

    Inflation is soaring. Violent crime is spiking; it’s now one of many top concerns among voters, including Democrats. Job creation has slowed, and we’re not even a year into this so-called presidency. Biden is a president who thinks if you just give a speech, the situation has been resolved. No. And calling it something else doesn’t make it go away either. The border is a total mess, but Biden needs vacation time. So, given the serial failure here, are we shocked that his approval numbers are circling the toilet (via NY Post):

    President Biden’s job approval ratings continue to sink, as the latest poll shows 50 percent of Americans disapprove of his performance in the White House — with independents’ disapproval of Biden’s job putting him in negative territory.

    The president, dealing with intense criticism over his bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan and a surge in COVID cases, has seen his approval rating fall to 42 percent, a drop of four points since early August, according to the Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

    It also marks the first time Biden’s ratings have fallen into negative territory in the Quinnipiac poll since he took office in January.

    Broken down by political party, Democrats approve of the job Biden is doing 88 to 7 percent, Republicans disapprove 91 to 7 percent and independents disapprove 52 to 34 percent.

    Other surveys began showing Biden’s approval rating falling below 50 percent at the beginning of August. ”
