Go Ahead And Try To Wrap Your Head Around This One.

From a tweet by Kennedy Hall.

Someone needs to explain how Fauci, who almost seems more reckless than COVID itself with his constantly changing goals, narratives and evasiveness in Congressional hearings, knew in 2017 that President Donald Trump would face a “surprise disease attack.”

Centers For Disease Control Reliability Takes Another Hit.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, it is fair to say that the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has not performed anywhere close to what people would expect and hope.

Whether it was projections on infection rates, number of people infected, mask effectiveness, and a host of other issues, the CDC was all over the place giving false and inconsistent information.

Yet when the CDC announced that COVID-19 took a year off of the lifespan of people in the US, media outlets ran with it:

Life expectancy in the United States fell by a full year in the first six months of 2020, the federal government reported on Thursday, the largest drop since World War II and a grim measure of the deadly consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

Life expectancy is the most basic measure of the health of a population, and the stark decline over such a short period is highly unusual and a signal of deep distress. The drop comes after a troubling series of smaller declines driven largely by a surge in drug overdose deaths. A fragile recovery over the past two years has now been wiped out.

Not surprisingly, the report is flawed:

Vaccine Insanity.

Dr. Hasan Gokal is a Houston, TX physician who is being prosecuted and we would say persecuted for giving the COVID-19 vaccine to “the wrong people.”

It’s an amazing story and one that demonstrates how government officials are more concerned with rules than doing the right thing.

According to the New York Times:

Dr. Gokal, 48, immigrated from Pakistan as a boy and earned a medical degree at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. After working at hospitals in Central New York, he moved to Texas in 2009 to oversee the emergency department at a suburban Houston hospital. His volunteer work has included rebuilding homes and providing medical care after Hurricane Harvey in 2017.

In recent years, Dr. Gokal split his time between two area hospitals. But when the pandemic hit in early 2020, he lived for a month in a hotel and an apartment rather than risk infecting his wife, Maria, 47, who has pulmonary sarcoidosis, a disease in her lungs that leaves her winded after even minimal activity.

“I was petrified to go home and bring Covid to my wife,” he said.

What The COVID Vaccine Does To Your Body.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With this post we are not making a statement as to whether one should get either of the two vaccines that are currently available. While the vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines both require two doses, there is a Johnson and Johnson vaccine coming down the pipeline that only requires one dose. Whether a person gets vaccinated at this point is a personnel choice (assuming they fit into a class for which the vaccine is available.) Eventually state governments may mandate the vaccine, but that is not what we want to bring to light today.

What we do want to inform people of is how the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines work and what they do to the body. We feel that information is it’s own form of inoculation against false ideas from all over the spectrum.

Is the coronavirus vaccine safe? Now that the first COVID19 vaccine from Pfizer is being released, how do mRNA vaccines work?

Curious News From The COVID Front.

If you are standing in line waiting for the COVID vaccine in New York, get behind addicts.

Recovering addicts in residential rehab facilities will be among those vaccinated against the coronavirus this week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo obliquely revealed Monday.

During a virtual news conference in Albany, Cuomo said the state was expecting to receive a combined 259,000 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.

In addition to urgent care center employees and “individuals who are administering the COVID-19 vaccines, for obvious reasons,” Cuomo said that shots would be given to residents of “OASAS” — the state Office of Addiction Services and Supports.

The agency runs 12 treatment centers across the state, with five located in or around New York City, and also certifies and monitors “hundreds” of private facilities, according to its website.

News From The COVID Front.

It’s been a while since we discussed the pandemic that has impacted everyone and seemingly every thing.

You are probably aware of the vaccine(s) that are now available, people getting the vaccines and data – that precious commodity that will show efficacy and side effects – is being collected.

However, there other issues as well going on of which you might not be aware.

A Federal judge has ruled that restrictions placed on gatherings and businesses by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf were un-Constitutional because they are too broad:

Once There Is A Vaccine For COVID-19, Then What?

Pharmacological companies have been racing to try to develop a vaccine for CODID-19. As far as we are aware, there are seven companies worldwide that are doing this, four of which are in the United States.

The question then becomes, “once there is a vaccine, then what?”

“How would the vaccine be distributed?” and “who gets the vaccine first?” “will vaccinations be mandatory?” are but a myriad of questions that need to be answered.

This past Tuesday, one of those questions may have been answered pending approval of the the head of the Center for Disease Control:

New York, COVID, And The Supreme Court.

(map is representative and not an actual map of COVID rates in New York.)

On November 25, 2020, the day before Thanksgiving, the United States Supreme Court released its decision in the case of ROMAN CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK v. ANDREW M. CUOMO, GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK.

The case grew out of restrictions placed on religious institutions and the number of people that could gather at their places of worship.

New York was using a color coded system to indicate the level of infections within the state. If an area was in an orange or red area, stricter regulations on gatherings were imposed.

In the 5-4 decision, the justices ruled that the restrictions placed on religious institutions were a violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendment. The violation of the First Amendment is pretty easy to see as the State was singling out religious institutions for regulations that were not placed on other, secular institutions.
