  1. Merry Christmas America.

    “America’s deadly year: Philadelphia now has more murders than NYC and LA and a DOZEN major US cities smash annual homicide records (and they are ALL Democrat)”

    “With several weeks left in the year, a dozen major cities have already broken their annual homicide records

    Philadelphia has recorded 521 murders, breaking record from 1990 and surpassing New York and Los Angeles

    Indianapolis, Louisville, Toledo and Baton Rouge broke previous records that were set just last year

    St. Paul, Portland, Austin and Rochester shattered long-standing murder records from the 1980s and 90s”

    Minors cannot consent to get the COVID-19 vaccine. In San Fran County a minor can consent only if the medical person makes actual effort to reach the parent or guardian to give them a chance to object.”

  4. This idiocy will never end, until we make it end.

    The goalposts keep moving, and 3, 4, heck 5 doses in, the vaccine will still not work as advertised.

  5. I guess it is no surprise some school authorities would give vaccinations without parental knowledge or consent. After all, they did it with abortions. Many parents had no idea their children had abortions, and this was way back in the seventies. I hope they are sued into realizing their own foolishness or at least to stop it.

  6. As I said before, it’s all about the co-morbidities….

    “Though these patients often have health conditions like diabetes that compound their risk, scientists have become increasingly convinced that their vulnerability has something to do with obesity itself.”

    “Now researchers have found that the coronavirus infects both fat cells and certain immune cells within body fat, prompting a damaging defensive response in the body.

    “The bottom line is, ‘Oh my god, indeed, the virus can infect fat cells directly,’” said Dr. Philipp Scherer, a scientist who studies fat cells at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, who was not involved in the research.

    “Whatever happens in fat doesn’t stay in fat,” he added. “It affects the neighboring tissues as well.””

  8. It’s not just the young.

    This stupidity is rampant across all age groups in those that lean left. The Covid scolds are just one example.

    “Young Democrats are intolerant scolds and some progressives think that’s great news”

    https://hotair.com/john-s-2/2021/12/08/young-democrats-are-intolerant-scolds-and-some-progressives-think-thats-great-news-n434210

    “Yesterday Axios published the results of a poll which found that about a quarter of college students would not be friends with someone who voted for the opposing party’s presidential candidate. But the real story here is how those findings break down along partisan lines:

    5% of Republicans said they wouldn’t be friends with someone from the opposite party, compared to 37% of Democrats.

    71% of Democrats wouldn’t go on a date with someone with opposing views, versus 31% of Republicans.

    30% of Democrats — and 7% of Republicans — wouldn’t work for someone who voted differently from them.

    This graphic sums up the findings:”

    “Two points about this. First, it’s fair to say that, with the exception of dating, a majority of young Democrats don’t support shunning people with different opinions. So don’t assume this represents the entire party because it doesn’t, at least not yet.

    Second, Axios suggests that the specter of Trump is hovering over these results. There may be some truth to that in the sense that college Democrats probably don’t recall much before Trump. That said, if you were around for Mitt Romney’s run for president (or John McCain’s run) then you know how quickly the left and the media can turn even marginally conservative figures into fire-breathing, vampire capitalists. So, no, I don’t think this is solely or even mostly about Trump.

    What is it about? My take is that this says something pretty good about Republican college students who are wise enough to know that politics isn’t everything and something pretty bad about a lot of young Democrats. The people who make up those blue bar graphs are partisan scolds for whom politics is a kind of substitute religion. I think what we’re seeing here, very roughly, is a measure of the degree to which wokeism has taken over the party. As I’ve said before, it’s still a minority view, but one that is still growing.

    You’d think it would be self-evident that shunning people you don’t know at all for having different opinions is a bad idea, one destined to create a progressive bubble. But today, over at New York magazine, Sarah Jones has a piece praising young Democrats based on the results of this poll:

    With few exceptions, loving a Republican means loving someone who voted for Trump, twice, despite the racism and the COVID denial and the credible sexual-assault allegations. Even befriending a Republican involves a certain amount of tolerance, and tolerance is not always a virtue, as conservatives themselves have argued for decades.

    Tolerance is possible only when a certain political equilibrium exists. That balance is nonexistent and will remain so as long as the GOP and the broader conservative movement cling to a set of invasive, exclusionary principles. As [conservative commentator Sarah] Isgur and other veterans of the Trump administration set out on their new careers, they owe much to our collective willingness to look the other way. They want impunity for themselves in public and in private. If young liberals are unwilling to give it to them and their supporters, that’s a good sign for the future.”

  9. Warms me heart, it does…. 🙂

    “Biden gets walloped by the courts”

    https://thehill.com/opinion/opinion/584818-pavlich-biden-gets-walloped-by-the-courts

    “On Sept. 9, 2021, as the catastrophic exit from Afghanistan continued to get worse by the hour, President Biden scheduled remarks from the White House.

    “The expansive rules mandate that all employers with more than 100 workers require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly, affecting about 80 million Americans. And the roughly 17 million workers at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid also will have to be fully vaccinated,” the Associated Press reported at the time, noting that the Occupational Safety and Health Adminstration (OSHA) was tasked with enforcement. “Biden is also signing an executive order to require vaccination for employees of the executive branch and contractors who do business with the federal government — with no option to test out. That covers several million more workers.”

    At the time of Biden’s announcement, White House chief of staff Ron Klain acknowledged the use of OSHA was a way to “work around” current federal law, something a judge would later notice and use to halt parts of the mandate.

    Shortly after Biden’s proclamation, a number of lawsuits were swiftly filed across the country by state attorneys general, private sector companies and federal contractors. While Biden and administration officials claimed they were confident in the legal standing of the mandates, they’ve been shot down repeatedly.

    In November, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals instructed OSHA to halt the implementation and enforcement of the mandate. The Court cited Klain’s motives as evidence the administration was trying to get around the law to justify Biden’s overreaching executive order.

    “On September 9, 2021, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain retweeted MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle’s tweet that stated, ‘OSHA doing this vcxx mandate as an emergency workplace safety rule is the ultimate work-around for the Federal govt to require vaccinations,” the ruling notes.

    In Missouri, U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Schelp recently issued an injunction on Biden’s vaccine mandates for Medicare and Medicaid workers.

    “The mandate requires nearly every employee, volunteer, and third-party contractor working at fifteen categories of healthcare facilities to be vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 (‘COVID’) and to have received at least a first dose of the vaccine prior to December 6, 2021,” court documents show. “Congress did not grant CMS authority to mandate the vaccine. Plaintiffs are likely to succeed in their argument that Congress has not provided CMS the authority to enact the regulation at issue here.”

    One day later, Louisiana Western District U.S. Judge Terry Doughty issued a nationwide injunction for all health care workers.

    “If the executive branch is allowed to usurp the power of the legislative branch to make laws, two of the three powers conferred by our Constitution would be in the same hands,” Doughty wrote. “If human nature and history teach anything, it is that civil liberties face grave risks when governments proclaim indefinite states of emergency.”

    And finally this week, a federal judge in Georgia issued a nationwide injunction against Biden’s mandate for federal government contractors.

    “While the Procurement Act explicitly and unquestionably bestows some authority upon the President, the Court is unconvinced, at this state of the litigation, that it authorized him to direct the type of actions by agencies that are contained in EO 14042. Pursuant to clear United States Supreme Court precedent, Congress is expected to ‘speak clearly’ when authorizing the exercise of powers of ‘vast economic and political significance,” Judge Stan Baker of Southern District of Georgia wrote.

    Each ruling cited Biden’s lack of authority from Congress to issue the mandate. “

  10. When the Left doesn’t want to talk about a given subject, they simply eliminate the vocabulary necessary to describe the problem.

    The deeds of this entire administration (including Hunter Biden’s misdeeds) needs to be fully addressed. They don’t even hide it anymore – they just tell you that there is no documentation!

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/nih-no-documents-available-on-removal-of-gain-of-function-definition-from-website_4147680.html

    “No documents exist explaining why officials decided to remove the definition of “gain-of-function research” from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, the agency told The Epoch Times.

    The NIH site used to include a 232-word definition of the research but it was removed around the same time the agency disclosed that research it funded in China met the definition.

    The alteration took place sometime between Oct. 19 and Oct. 21.

    The Epoch Times submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for any communications and other documents from between Oct. 1 and Oct. 25 relating to the change, which had been authorized by the NIH Office of Communications and Public Liaison.

    The request was closed this week. The NIH told The Epoch Times that it “does not have documentation” on the change other than the updated page.”
