Veterans Affairs bureaucrats are keeping
vets from using health care outside its
troubled system
Posted by AltaD 12/2/2021 2:35:39 PM Post Reply
Once again, Department of Veterans Affairs bureaucrats are making a concerted effort to prevent veterans from using our health-care benefits at community-based providers outside the VA system — despite a law requiring them to do so. (Snip) The results were startling and add to concern about the 20 million appointments that have been canceled, denied or delayed since the pandemic’s start. The FOIA documents revealed the VA’s failure to follow the law and its own regulatory requirements as it refuses to refer eligible veterans for community care, possibly cancels appointments without patient consent and dissuades veterans from seeking community care in call scripts. In January 2020 at the Prescott, Ariz., facility, for example,
New Texas law limiting abortion takes
effect Thursday
Posted by Dreadnought 12/2/2021 2:27:01 PM Post Reply
A new law limiting access to abortion pills in Texas went into effect on Thursday, worrying pro-choice supporters who fear the law will further restrict abortion access in an already restrictive state. SB4 bans abortion providers from providing a pill to terminate a pregnancy after 49 days, and also does not allow for the drugs to be shipped by mail, meaning women can't order the pills from across state lines. The law would have a big effect, considering more than a third of women in 2017 used abortion pills, according to the Guttmacher Institute. The bill, which had more than a dozen sponsors, was passed on a 82-41 vote in the Senate.
Manchin won't rule out backing GOP effort
to defund Biden vaccine mandate

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) declined to say Thursday how he would vote on a GOP effort to defund President Biden’s vaccine requirement for larger businesses as part of the debate over a short-term bill to fund the government. Manchin, asked if he would vote for an amendment to block funding for the mandate, sidestepped the question by saying that he was still “working” through it. “I’ve been very supportive of a mandate for federal government, for military ... I’ve been less enthused about it in the private sector,” Manchin said.

Students at Arizona State University angrily chanted "killer Kyle off our campus" as they marched through school grounds protesting the possibility Kyle Rittenhouse could attend classes there. "I’m marching because killer Kyle should not be going to this campus," one student, Farha, told Fox News. "That is White supremacy at its peak and it does not belong at ASU." Rittenhouse shot and killed two men and injured a third during unrest following the August 2020 police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The teen was acquitted of all charges in November.

Joe Biden will launch a review for vaccinating children under five as he ramps up booster shots as part of his winter COVID plan to tackle the Omicron variant. The president will address the nation Thursday afternoon where he will kick off an urgent campaign to get all Americans immunized so that the virus can be combated without more lockdowns.(Snip)One of the most striking proposals in the plan is a push for the Food and Drug Administration to review shots for kids under five shortly after the vaccine was approved for children between the ages of five and 11.

Vermont: Highest Vaccination Rate, Record-Breaking
COVID Numbers

Vermont, the left-wing New England paradise, is seeing a record number of its residents hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms. And this crisis comes despite having the highest vaccination rate in the United States. Hospital admissions from COVID in the Green Mountain State have climbed rapidly in the last four months. (Snip) Vermont’s Department of Health said a majority were not “fully vaccinated” against the virus. “We do know that those who are not fully vaccinated are going to the hospital at a higher rate, and they are staying longer as well, consuming hospital resources,” Vermont Financial Regulation Commissioner Mike Pieciak told a local news affiliate.
CNN Brings on Worst Person They Could

Posted by Garnet 12/2/2021 12:30:19 PM Post Reply
Oral arguments are underway this week at the Supreme Court in the closely-watched case involving the pro-life bill passed in 2018 by the Mississippi state legislature and signed into law by then-Gov. Phil Bryant that – with exceptions – banned abortions after 15 weeks but which did not go into effect due to legal challenges. As Bonchie noted in his write-up, from the way things sound so far, it looks like a majority of the Justices are leaning in Mississippi’s favor. If so, it would effectively nuke Roe v. Wade, a situation which a panicked Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.) recently threatened would lead to a “revolution.”
Chris Christie is wrong: Election integrity matters replies
Posted by Garnet 12/2/2021 12:16:03 PM Post Reply
Elections have consequences. That is why we must have free, fair, and secure elections. In an effort to tee up another failed run for president, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recently stated that everyone should move on from the 2020 election, criticizing former President Donald Trump.Christie is completely out of touch with voters. Trump is right to focus on election integrity. Election integrity is an important and winning issue for Republicans, especially after the sham election of 2020 and with the fast-approaching elections of 2022 and 2024. Without it, history will repeat itself, and we will lose our country as we once knew it.

People sometimes have the sense of living inside a story. There is the obvious one of their own personal lives, embedded within the wider tale of the surrounding community. So it goes with each bigger scene nesting within the larger context enfolding it. While there is little individuals can do to affect its outcome directly, many can’t help but ask themselves the question about the largest drama they can conceive: ‘What is the story of my time?’ Will my tribe, civilization, and religion perish, or is it yet to flourish to an unknown height? Strange to say, people living through history had little sense of its shape.

Inflation numbers for October 2020 to October 2021 came in at a staggering 6.2%. Much of that increase, of course, has occurred under this current administration. That number is up dramatically from the 2% inflation rate that was recorded from October 2019 to October 2020 during the Trump Administration. For many years, including during the Obama and Bush II years, inflation hovered around 2-3%. That was always the target the Federal Reserve set as their goal to keep the economy humming without it overheating and causing inflation. If you really want to see how dramatically inflation decreases your buying power, go on the internet and find an inflation calculator.

In a recent online exchange, the YouTuber Casey Neistat posted his fury after his car was broken into and the contents stolen. Los Angeles, he railed, was turning into a “3rd-world s—hole of a city.” The multimillionaire actor Seth Rogen chastised Neistat for his anger. Rogen claimed that a car’s contents were minor things to lose. He added that while living in West Hollywood he had his own car broken into 15 times—but thought little of it. Online bloggers ridiculed Rogen. No wonder—the actor lives in multimillion-dollar homes in the Los Angeles area, guarded by sophisticated security systems and fencing.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has warned that American may need to be prepared to receive a vaccination for COVID-19 every year to protect against infection, but insists that holiday travel is still safe for the vaccinated. Fauci said it was too early to tell whether an annual 'booster' will be needed as new variants emerge, as he spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper during a town hall Wednesday evening. 'Anderson, to be honest with you, we don't know. We really don't. You could say we might have this or we might require this, but we don't know,' Fauci said.

For Kamala Harris, she must be uttering the rich lady's lament right about now: You just can't get good staff anymore. This time a big one has flown the coop, a veritable whale of a woman in significance, spokeswoman Symone Sanders. She's by far the highest-ranking Kamala official now to get the heck out of Dodge. Her exit follows a lot of other exits, which I wrote about here. And apparently it's not going to be the last one, these guys plan to leave after Sanders leaves. Why would she do that? Two reasons stand out. One, working for Kamala Harris is hell.
