The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is finalizing plans to shorten the recommended length of quarantine for those exposed to Covid-19. The CDC currently recommends that individuals quarantine for 14 days after being exposed to people with the coronavirus. The two weeks is based on how long scientists believe it can take the virus to incubate in the body. "CDC is always reviewing its guidance and recommendations in the light of new understandings of the virus that causes Covid-19, and will announce such changes when appropriate," a spokesperson for the agency told NBC News on Tuesday. The updated approach will likely incorporate testing.

It was never about safety. It is about control. They are testing the limits. Resist.

There were quite a few people walking around Walmart yesterday without masks. There were no mask police at the door either. I went to a new nail salon where masks were optional. Loving it! The CDC seems to be getting back to flu quarantine protocols of get the flu, stay away, get better, move on with life.

I wonder how the Black Friday sales will turn out. I wouldn't go there in a Space Suit, but I expect a lot of people will forget their fears for one day. All through this Corona Virus thing, I have been impressed with one bit of knowledge. The CDC and W.H.O. have no idea what they are doing.

So basically they’re going to revisit the 14 day quarantine and maybe change it - or maybe not. This is a nonsense article typical of corporate media

we all know what the authorities are just now admitting - that this is so much BS but it gave the demcoms just enough time to skew the election and other massive lies to subject the American people to total and complete control. now we know, somewhat, what living in a communist world is like.

A column this week by former Defense Secretary James N. Mattis that blasted President Trump’s “America First” theme did not disclose that Mr. Mattis holds a senior position at the Cohen Group, a firm that dedicates itself to making business deals in China. Mr. Trump’s get-tough approach toward China — tariffs and prohibitions on Beijing’s cyberproducts — is generally counter to the Cohen Group’s objective of bringing Chinese and U.S. companies together in multimillion dollar deals. The Cohen Group, founded by former Defense Secretary William Cohen and staffed by a number of former high-ranking government and military leaders, has two of its four overseas offices in China.

I wanted to write a hard-hitting post about Joe Biden’s selections for key foreign policy jobs — Antony Blinken (Secretary of State), Alejandro Mayorkas (Secretary of Homeland Security), and Avril Haines (Director of National Intelligence). Then I found out that three Republican Senators have already done the work. According to the Washington Post, Sen. Tom Cotton called this collection “panda huggers who will only reinforce [Biden’s] instincts to go soft on China.” Sen. Josh Hawley calls the three “a group of corporatists and war enthusiasts — and #BigTech sellouts.” Sen. Marco Rubio gets the prize. He describes them “polite and orderly caretakers of America’s decline.”

President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday called on Americans not to gather with extended families for Thanksgiving, saying it was a “patriotic duty” to limit the spread of COVID-19. Biden said during an at times campaign-like speech in Wilmington, Del., that he and his family were setting an example by not celebrating the holiday as a large group. “This year we are asking Americans to forgo so many of the traditions that we’ve long made this holiday,” Biden said. “This year, because we care so much for each other, we’re going to be having a separate Thanksgiving for Jill and I, who will be at our home in Delaware with

Because the pandemic has given Democrats and liberals in the news media yet more reason to be self-important, we've been hearing nonstop in recent weeks that families should forego holiday gatherings this year. It should be done, we're told, so that we can more quickly return to normal (psych!) and "keep each other safe." Like almost everything else we've been lectured about, the advisement comes with that condescending tone perfected by Democrats and "experts" who believe in their hearts that people can't evaluate their own unique circumstances and make the best choices for themselves without the nagging. But, of course, they can.

States will begin receiving the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines in mid-December, but will make their own determinations on who will be first in line for a shot. An estimated 6.4 million doses of Pfizer’s vaccine will be distributed to states and territories by mid-December, assuming it receives Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization by that point, Operation Warp Speed officials told reporters Tuesday. State officials were notified Friday how many doses they should expect to receive in the initial distribution, and they will make their own decisions about who will be prioritized for the first doses.

A Pennsylvania state court issued an injunction Wednesday blocking any potential further certification of election results in the state, pending a hearing to be held Friday. The order from Judge Patricia McCullough comes in the case brought by Pennsylvania voters including Rep.

CNN is silent after South Dakota emergency room nurse Jodi Doering claimed on the liberal network that patients dying from coronavirus often don’t believe it despite her story appearing to have been a “massive exaggeration” if not worse. CNN’s interview went viral, with one clip piling up over 5.8 million views on Twitter. NewsBusters conducted a study, indicating that CNN spent 23 minutes and 38 seconds on Doering’s tale over a two-day period. “Of course, CNN has yet to air an acknowledgment or correction because, when there’s a narrative to push, CNN subscribes to the mantra of if it rings true, it is true,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck wrote.

Tesla boss Elon Musk surpassed Bill Gates to become the world’s second-richest person as the electric-car maker continued its staggering stock-market surge. A 6.5 percent jump in Tesla’s share price added about $7.2 billion to Musk’s fortune on Monday, putting his total net worth at $127.9 billion — slightly eclipsing Microsoft co-founder Gates’ $127.7 billion, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. Musk, 49, took the No. 2 spot on the ranking of the world’s 500 richest people less than a week after climbing past Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg into third place.

Don’t touch that like button! Twitter has unveiled a new policy to display warnings when users like a labelled tweet. Twitter has outlined a wide range of updates to undermine conservative opposition amid the recent 2020 presidential election. “Giving context on why a labeled Tweet is misleading under our election, COVID-19, and synthetic and manipulated media rules is vital,” Twitter declared on Monday as it unveiled yet another policy change. The official Twitter account explained that new “prompts” in recent months “helped decrease Quote Tweets of misleading information by 29%.” Now the platform is “expanding them to show when you tap to like a labeled Tweet.”

YouTube has penalized the right-wing One America News Network for promoting a bogus cure for COVID-19. On Tuesday, YouTube said it removed a video posted by OANN, a relentlessly pro-Trump outfit owned by Herring Networks, because it violated the site’s policy prohibiting coronavirus misinformation. Because OANN has received a “strike,” it is temporarily prevented from uploading new videos or live-streaming for one week. YouTube also has demonetized OANN’s channel, meaning it is no longer eligible to participate in the site’s advertising revenue-sharing program.

In what appeared to be an effort to stop the hemorrhaging of viewers after his attacks against Sidney Powell, Tucker Carlson reverted back to being the commentator on Fox News's highest-rated program on Monday. Or did he? After re-watching the clip of Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” twice, it appears to this humble writer that Carlson’s interview with Dr. Robert Epstein was an attempt to change the topic from fraudulent voting machines to Big Tech, specifically Google, as the difference of shifting six million votes to Joe Biden.

Right-wing Twitter users were fooled by an obvious prank on Tuesday after an admitted troll claimed that “antifa” was preparing to descend on conservative areas of the country. The prank, carried out by political activist and performance artist Adam Rahuba, involved a tweet in which President Donald Trump was ordered to concede the 2020 election.“If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas,” Rahuba tweeted at Trump. “Your supporters will not be able to go to work or the grocery store to feed their families.

If Anthony Fauci made another dramatic plea about COVID and nobody listened, would he really make a sound? Better: If nobody other than the Democrat Party and the liberal lapdog media listened, and clapped like trained seals in response to everything he said? The latter was the case on Wednesday morning when Fauci hooked up with Scooter George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an attempt to scare tens of millions of Americans into “sacrificing” their Thanksgiving in the name of all-things COVID. Stephy lobbed a softball right down the middle of the plate for the attention-whoring emerging and infectious diseases expert, which he promptly hit into the left-field stands.
