  1. BIDEN’S SECRET FLIGHTS

    https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/10/bidens-secret-flights.php

    “Miranda Devine and a raft of reporters have the New York Post cover story Biden secretly flying underage migrants into NY in dead of night.” The story opens:

    Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden’s administration to quietly resettle them across the region, The Post has learned.

    The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.

    Westchester County cops stood by as the passengers — whose flights arrived at 10:49 p.m. Wednesday and 9:52 p.m. Friday — got off and piled into buses.

    Some of them were later seen meeting up with relatives or sponsors in New Jersey, or being dropped off at a residential facility on Long Island.

    The Post has much more, including a note that secret flights are also landing in Florida. Looking for comments on the secrecy involved here, I see that a spokesman Governor DeSantis responded to the Post: “If the Biden Administration is so confident that their open-border policy is good for our country, why the secrecy? Why is the Biden Administration refusing to share even the most basic information about illegal alien resettlement in communities throughout our state and the entire country? Washington DC sets immigration policies that do not affect them, and states — that lack information about migrant resettlement and do not have the authority to change federal immigration policy — are expected to bear the brunt of Biden’s reckless open-borders agenda.””

    “Biden secretly flying underage migrants into NY in dead of night”

    https://nypost.com/2021/10/18/biden-secretly-flying-underage-migrants-into-ny-in-dead-of-night/

    “Records show some of the planes touched down between midnight and 6:30 a.m. — when a voluntary curfew is in effect — with two arriving from Houston at 2:13 a.m. and 4:29 a.m. on Aug. 20.

    The clandestine nature of the operation raises questions about how the White House is dealing with a recent surge in unaccompanied minors.

    The most recent figures from US Customs and Border Protection show that just during July and August, 37,805 unaccompanied minors were caught entering the US from Mexico — sometimes after being abandoned by professional smugglers known as “coyotes.”

    Video shows some children dropped over the border wall or abandoned in remote areas.

    A source familiar with the operation at the Westchester airport said the underage migrants typically arrive carrying backpacks and are bused to locations including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, upstate Newburgh, and Bridgeport and Danbury in Connecticut.

    Around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, it stopped in Syosset, Long Island, at the campus of MercyFirst, a nonprofit sponsored by the Catholic Sisters of Mercy that provides housing and services for “children and adolescents who are the victims of societal problems,” according to its website.

    On Friday night, one bus left the Westchester airport and barreled down the Hutchinson River Parkway — which is off-limits to commercial vehicles — at speeds greater than 75 mph before crossing the Throgs Neck Bridge.

    MercyFirst has a contract to supply the federal government with residential services for “immigrant youth,” according to the site.

    MercyFirst CEO Renee Skolaski didn’t return a request for comment.”

    “How long can the charade of “President” Joe Biden go on before senior officials in Washington start to chat amongst themselves about how to end it? This 14-second video below shows Biden trying to talk over the band that has started to play, and DOCTOR Jill Biden walking quickly up to him to stop the embarrassment. It sounds like she says “Look at me,” following which the “President” begins to wander off aimlessly and looking confused.”

  3. An excellent step in the right direction, but how about if government gets out of health care altogether?

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/doctors-can-prescribe-ivermectin-hydroxychloroquine-off-label-for-covid-19-nebraska-ag_4055924.html

    “Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson issued a legal opinion saying that his office won’t seek disciplinary action against doctors who prescribe hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin as off-label medicines to treat or prevent COVID-19, as long as they are not engaging in any misconduct.

    The opinion (pdf), issued on Oct. 14, was in response to a request from Dannette Smith, CEO of the state’s Department of Health, which licenses and disciplines doctors. Smith asked whether it would be “deemed unlawful or otherwise subject to discipline” for doctors to prescribe ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, or other “off label use” medications to treat or prevent COVID-19.

    The Republican attorney general said in the opinion that his office finds “the available data does not justify filing disciplinary actions against physicians simply because they prescribe ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine to prevent or treat COVID-19.””

  4. Look at that.

    They’re “following the science!” and using some common sense.

    At the same time! 🙂

    “Follow the Science! Hospitals Accept Natural Immunity as Reason for Staff to Defer Mandated Vaccine”

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/athena-thorne/2021/10/19/hospitals-follow-the-science-accept-natural-immunity-as-reason-to-defer-vaccine-mandates-n1525108

    “Following a growing trend, several Ohio hospitals are allowing staff who have already recovered from COVID-19 infections to defer their mandated vaccines.

    Premier Health, Kettering Health and the Dayton Children’s Hospital networks have all set a December 1 deadline for workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and all three networks are now accepting proof of natural immunity as a reason to defer compliance. “Natural immunity” refers to testing positive for coronavirus-targeting antibodies following a COVID-19 infection.

    “This pathway was created because there is evidence that there is protection that arises from a previous infection,” explained Dr. Roberto Colón, chief medical officer at Miami Valley Hospital.

    A major study out of Israel made waves last month when it showed natural immunity to be a superior defense against COVID-19 infection, even better than vaccination.”

    Many Americans have been arguing that vaccine mandates are unnecessary for people with natural immunity but have had to fight simply to have their argument heard. In July of 2020, a professor at the University of California-Irvine, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, sued to be exempted from the school’s vaccination mandate because he had already recovered from COVID-19. A judge dismissed his case, but last August, another professor, Todd Zywicki, similarly sued George Mason University. (He dropped his lawsuit after the university mooted the issue by granting him a “medical exemption.”)

    Last month, six Los Angeles Police Department officers filed a suit against the city’s employee vaccine mandate. The complaint states that “The city does not and cannot point to any evidence that vaccinated individuals have longer lasting or more complete immunity than those who have recovered from COVID.”

    This statement contradicts the preferred rationale of pro-vaccine authoritarians, who claim that the jabs are necessary because no one knows how long protection created by recovery from COVID infection lasts. But the very same argument is true of the vaccines, which are already confirmed to lose effectiveness after six months.

    Even the patron saint of medical fascism, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci, admits that natural immunity might well be as effective as immunization. “It is conceivable that you got infected, you’re protected,” allows Fauci, “but you may not be protected for an indefinite period of time.”

    While limited duration is a known weakness of COVID vaccines, it may not be the case with natural immunity. Isn’t that something worth studying? Perhaps the billions of tax dollars spent on producing, distributing, storing, and administering vaccinations could be greatly reduced. Countless potential adverse vaccine reactions and injuries could be avoided. Why, then, the fanatical push to vaccinate everyone, regardless of natural immunity status?”

    If Fauci weren’t a fraud trying to cover up his complicity with the Chinese lab that released this, we might already have those studies.

    “Biden’s Job Approval Rating Sinks To 37%”

    https://dailycaller.com/2021/10/19/joe-biden-approval-rating-covid-19-afghanistan-quinnipiac/

    “President Joe Biden’s job approval rating continues to sink, according to the results of a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

    Just 37% of Americans say they approve of Biden’s job performance according to the poll, down a single point from 38% on Oct. 6. Biden’s losses with independents were slightly more severe, with 28% of independent voters saying they approve of his performance compared to 32% earlier in the month.

    Approval among men declined from 35% to 30%, while Biden gained among women, jumping a single percentage point from 42% to 43%. The president also saw major losses among hispanics, dropping nine percentage points from 42% to 33%.”
