US Sen. Bernie Sanders criticized the Israeli government for sending COVID-19 vaccines to foreign allies before sending them to Palestinians. Sanders was responding to a New York Times tweet stating that "Israel's vaccine donations to faraway countries have angered Palestinians who say Israel is responsible for the well-being of Palestinians in the occupied territories, where vaccines are scarce." The former Democratic presidential contender claimed in a tweet that "Israel is responsible for the health of all the people under its control. It is outrageous that Netanyahu would use spare vaccines to reward his foreign allies while so many Palestinians in the occupied territories are still waiting."

The White House on Tuesday declined to defend Dr. Seuss after President Joe Biden left the children's author out of a proclamation celebrating Read Across America Day. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the day is 'a chance to celebrate diverse authors whose work and lived experience reflect the diversity of our country.' Her comments come after Biden omitted Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day, which is held annually on the children's author's birthday on March 2. But now six of his children's books will no longer be published because of racist and insensitive imagery, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the company that preserves and protects the author's legacy,

Border crossers released into the interior of the United States by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials have tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus just as President Joe Biden has denied that there is “a crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border.After taking office, Biden reinstated the Catch and Release program where border crossers are freed into the U.S. interior while they await asylum and immigration hearings that many do not ultimately attend, instead opting to live illegally in the country.Aside from about 25,600 migrants enrolled in the now-canceled Remain in Mexico program, border crossers released into the U.S. interior are not required to test negative for the coronavirus.

Biden Says When He Thinks Things Will
Get Back to Normal, It's Not Good

It sounds like some states are well on their way to getting back to normal. Both Texas and Mississippi today announced today they would be discontinuing all mask mandates and allowing businesses and schools to open back up. This isn’t just out of the air or haphazardly but based on dropping numbers of cases. From ABC7: Like the rest of the country, Texas has seen the number of cases and deaths plunge. Hospitalizations are at the lowest levels since October, and the seven-day rolling average of positive tests has dropped to about 7,600 cases, down from more than 10,000 in mid-February.
Are Mask Mandates Crumbling? replies

For quite a few months now, my family has been living a normal life, unimpeded by covid hysteria. Sure, it’s not perfect: the restaurants are open again, but we do have to wear masks for a few seconds while walking to our table. Also during the few moments while we walk indoors to our offices, and in grocery stores, etc. Given that I think the science is clear, and masks do no, or virtually no, good, I eagerly await the day when we can burn them all. (Didn’t feminists do that with bras many years ago? Pretty good analogy.) Is the mask dam starting to break? I think so.
10% GDP growth? The U.S. economy is on
fire, and is about to get stoked even more

The U.S. economy has roared back to life in 2021, with first-quarter growth set to defy even the rosiest expectations as another fresh influx of cash looms. Manufacturing data Monday showed the sector at its highest growth level since August 2018. That report from the Institute for Supply Management in turn helped confirm the notion among economists that output to start the year is far better than the low single-digit growth many had been predicting in late 2020. The Atlanta Federal Reserve, which tracks data in real time to estimate changes in gross domestic product, now is indicating a 10% gain for the first three months of the year.

A Michigan professor claims he has been 'systematically discriminated against for 40 years for being a white man', in a letter demanding an apology from his university over their new anti-racism policies. Jeffrey Burl wrote to his employers, Michigan Technological University, after they passed a resolution criticizing 'anti-Blackness and systemic racism' in both the college and society. In his letter Burl, who is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, writes: 'I find this resolution particularly offensive because I, as a white male, have been systematically discriminated against for 40 years.

Joe Biden was asked when things will go back to normal on Tuesday as he shuffled out of his presser. Joe paused and told the leftwing reporters: Joe Biden: “I’ve been cautioned not to give an answer for that because we do not know for sure. But my hope is by this time next year we’ll be back to normal. But again it depends on people to continue, to continue to be smart and understand that we still can have significant losses.” Maybe next year. These Democrats are determined to kill America.

Tuesday’s White House press briefing was more of the same with Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s continued refusal to offer substance on the cancelling of Dr. Seuss, immigration, and scandal-ridden Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY). Fox News’s Kristin Fisher played a leading role, battling Psaki on Cuomo on the astute observation that, in addition to the fact that President Biden and Vice President Harris haven’t commented publicly on the sexual harassment claims, “Harris was one of the most vocal critics of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, of Senator Al Franken when they faced similar allegations.”

ICE has locked down a Twitter account that was used to alert the public to illegal immigrants released by sanctuary cities. @ICEAlerts is now “protected,” meaning only those who had already been following the account can see the target names. Users also can’t retweet the old posts, said Jon Feere, a former senior employee at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under President Trump. ICE did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the change, but Mr. Feere said the Biden administration doesn’t want people to know what kinds of criminals it’s no longer actively seeking to deport.

Albany—Gov.

It says a lot that Andrew Cuomo became a media darling even as his policies caused thousands of deaths in New York nursing homes, but now, suddenly, is the subject of impeachment talk because three women have accused him of mild or borderline sexual harassment. What it suggests to me is that our priorities are skewed and that our culture is becoming frivolous. The allegations of sexual harassment show Cuomo to be a boor, something many of us already suspected. Reasonable people can disagree as to whether the allegations are just cause for removing him as governor. The fact that Cuomo sent New Yorkers infected with the coronavirus back to nursing homes

A new poll released last week revealed that 69 percent of French people — or nearly 7 out of 10 — believe “Islamo-Leftism” is a serious problem in France. The Odoxa-Backbone survey revealed on Feb. 24 that participants view left-wing political parties as being “complacent with radical Islamism,” while refusing to take firm stances against the extremist beliefs out of fear of “stigmatizing” Muslims. The poll also showed that over 80 percent of right-wing and center-right individuals believe “Islamo-leftism” is an issue, whereas those on the left were divided: 46 percent of far-left individuals believe it’s an issue compared to 63 percent of Socialist Party supporters consider it a problem.

Given the myth that Cuomo has cultivated about his COVID leadership, this is like Churchill being stripped of his war powers in 1942. It’s going to make for an amazing chapter in the sequel to his “How I Saved America from the Coronavirus” book, no? Serious question: Does this move happen if not for Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal? Lawmakers were discussing it a few weeks ago after the news broke about his nursing-home cover-up, but remember that both chambers of the state legislature are controlled by Democrats. It’s no easy thing to come after a governor from your own party,
