Glenn Loury & Cornel West on religion, liberty, freedom, race, capitalism, socialism, and how it’s all intertwined

This one hour conversation is so rich in thought and philosophy on life, the American experiment, the black experience in America, importance of religion, importance of liberty and personal responsibility, and how all these things come together and are related. I need to watch it again to grasp everything that was said.

Nothing is solved but all is laid to bare.

Why DOESN’T Kamala Harris just go to the damn border already?

Biden taps Harris to take command of the illegal alien surge at the U.S./Mexico border. It’s hard to believe it was only 2 months ago.

Then she doesn’t go and there are denials that she is even taking up the job of border security.

“The Vice President is not doing the border,” a senior advisor to Harris told reporters Friday. “The President asked the vice president to take on the diplomatic efforts with Mexico and …the Northern Triangle to address the root causes of migration.”

Fox News

Then the Lester Holt interview where she goes a little bonkers on being questioned about going to the border.

And subsequently all the other border questions.

Honestly… why doesn’t Kamala Harris just go to the damn border?!? It’s not like it will make a difference in the number of people coming across nor will it change anything with U.S. policy. But, with all the criticism from all sides and Harris’ crazy “we’ve been to the border” “I’m going to the border” nonsense she could eliminate it all by just going.

Is she now stuck in a position where she doesn’t want to look like she was forced to go to the border? She is coming off as one of the biggest morons to ever hold the office of Vice President.

J&J vaccine has magic expiration date

Got an expiring vaccine?? Just go to the FDA and they’ll change that for you. Snip snap done. Your vaccine now has 6 more weeks to cure COVID-19

On Thursday, though, amid warnings that supplies across the nation would expire, Johnson & Johnson announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has extended the vaccine’s expiration date by six weeks, based on data from ongoing studies.

Fulton County, Georgia is looking a lot like Cook County, Illinois

Nothing to see hear folks. Voter fraud is impossible. I’m sure these ballots were completed by people who really hate marking the ovals with a pen.

When Fulton County, Ga., poll manager Suzi Voyles sorted through a large stack of mail-in ballots last November, she noticed an alarmingly odd pattern of uniformity in the markings for Joseph R. Biden. One after another, the absentee votes contained perfectly filled-in ovals for Biden — except that each of the darkened bubbles featured an identical white void inside them in the shape of a tiny crescent, indicating they’d been marked with toner ink instead of a pen or pencil.

CDC lied about teen COVID-19 hospitalizations

The Wall Street Journal says the CDC “misrepresented the data” regarding teen COVID-19 hospitalization and “played down” adverse mental health effects of lockdowns among teens. It needs to be said. The CDC didn’t play anything down or misrepresent data. They out and out lied.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report last week warning that adolescent hospitalizations due to Covid-19 were on the rise. The media picked up the message and ran with it. But it isn’t true. The CDC misrepresented the data and played down a more important finding that provides further evidence that pandemic-control measures are likely having a serious adverse impact on young people’s mental health.

The CDC truncated its analysis at the precise date—April 24—that would cast an increase in teen hospitalization in the worst possible light. The 10% rise in early March that attracted so many headlines was similar to rises in other age groups and had declined sharply by late April. Adolescent hospitalizations for Covid-19 were back down to 0.6 per 100,000 by late May, before the CDC report was published, and well below the rate of 2.6 for the adult U.S. population. Moreover, Covid cases among children in 2021 have now fallen by 84% and hospitalizations are down by 69% since January, thanks largely to adult vaccination.

Wall Street Journal

Fucking Fauci talks about attacks on him being attacks on science itself. Well what does he have to say about the fucking science when the CDC omits data to push the narrative that teens need to be vaccinated? That pompous asshat of a bureaucrat and the bureaucrats running the CDC all need to be removed. We pay too much money to these people that seem to interested more in pushing vaccines on children for diseases at which they are not at risk.

Here’s the other lie of omission from the CDC on the effects of lockdown on American’s youth.

20% of teen hospitalizations in the study between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2021, were for psychiatric emergencies, not Covid. Although pandemic-related closures have made it difficult to study the mental health of children during the past year, the available data point to a crisis. Lockdowns and school closures have led to greater incidences of obesity and eating disorders, according to experts at the Stanford Children’s Health network. Since the start of the pandemic, overall health-care utilization rates have been low and many “elective” visits, including mental-health services, were unavailable. This exacerbated what the CDC has identified as a pre-existing mental-health treatment gap for children in the U.S.

CDC says heart inflammation among teens higher than expected after 2nd vaccine dose… so Moderna says let’s expand it down to 12 year olds

Do you remember when the Johnson & Johnson vaccine distribution was halted because of 6 clots out of 6.8 million doses administered? Well there are hundreds of teens experiencing heart inflammation shortly after receiving their 2nd dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and we just keep trucking along. It’s nearly three times higher than what was expected.

There have been a higher-than-expected number of cases of heart inflammation in 16- to 24-year-olds after receiving their second dose of Pfizer’s or Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccines, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday, citing preliminary data from its vaccine safety monitor system.

The CDC has received reports of 275 cases in that age group as of May 31, the agency said in a presentation prepared for a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel meeting Thursday. Scientists expected between 10 and 102 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis — where the heart muscle or the lining surrounding it become inflamed, according to the CDC.

CNBC

Let’s not be concerned about this at all and let them move the age groups all the way down to newborns.

Moderna announced Thursday that it has requested an “emergency use authorization” from the Food and Drug Administration for its COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 12-17.

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine already has won FDA authorization for kids as young as 12. Providing access to vaccines for children is a crucial component in the effort to normalize in-classroom learning for the 2020-21 school year, little more than two months away in some school districts.

USA Today

After all… it’s more important to vaccinate the section of the population that is the least vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 and the least likely to have severe cases of COVID-19 than to just let them live. Let’s inject them with an experimental vaccine because the danger from the illness is higher than the danger from the experiment. What a load of bullshit!

“We still don’t know whether this is truly related to the vaccine,” Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said during a virtual Q&A event on May 27. He added that the “handful” of cases reported have been “very mild, lasting a day or two” and usually happened after a second dose.

Health experts say finding rare side effects once a vaccine or drug is administered to the general population is common and if myocarditis turns out to be related to the Covid vaccine, the risk is negligible when compared with the risks of being infected with Covid-19.

Chinese mom chastises Virginia schools over Critical Race Theory

The history of socialism and communism is no longer taught in public schools. They ignore the facts that millions of people died because of these ideologies that paint a utopian picture. A Chinese woman who lived under Chinese Communist rule understands the parallels between the Communist Cultural Revolution and the current push in the United States to indoctrinate our children with Critical Race Theory. She lets a school board in Virginia have it.

The only TV news program I miss

I never watched a lot of TV news but WGN to me was king of local news. It doesn’t get more Chicago than WGN.
