However, she did have high blood pressure and patients with the condition face twice the risk of dying from the disease, according to a study of 2,900 patients in China.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., wants a song about faith and resilience long revered in the Black community to become the national hymn and help toward uniting the country after centuries of racial turmoil. Clyburn, the House majority whip, plans to introduce a measure as early as this week that would make “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, the national hymn and give it a special place alongside the country’s anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." “To make it a national hymn, I think, would be an act of bringing the country together. It would

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is asking states to speed delivery of COVID-19 vaccines to people 65 and older and to others at high risk by no longer holding back the second dose of the two-dose shots, officials said Tuesday. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said that “the administration in the states has been too narrowly focused.” As a result, he said, the Trump administration is now asking states to vaccinate people age 65 and over and those under 65 with underlying health conditions that put them at high risk. He said the vaccine production is such that

Deutsche Bank AG has reportedly decided to cut ties with President Donald Trump as well as his private companies following the unrest at Capitol Hill last week. The German lender has been joined by the New York-based Signature Bank, which also announced that it would be ending its business relationship with the President. Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday that two insiders within Deutsche Bank — who remained anonymous ostensibly due to banking regulations — confirmed that the German banking giant would no longer conduct any further business with President Trump or his company.

As Donald Trump faces the possibility that his presidency will end early and in disgrace, Newsmax TV host Greg Kelly is focusing on a different priority: the impeachment of President-Elect Joe Biden. Ever since the 2020 election ended, Kelly has denied Biden’s victory, pushed numerous voter fraud conspiracy theories, and claimed Trump would definitely get a second term. When confronted with the unavoidable reality of Trump’s defeat, he compared Biden to a bank robber getting away with his crime.

They tried, and it looks like they may have failed. Social media company Parler, which has been under attack from the far-left for not censoring conservatives, seems to have found a new home after Amazon Web Services decided to stop hosting the company’s site. The Washington Examiner reported: On Monday, Parler registered its domain and server to be hosted by Epik, an internet webhosting company known for working with right-leaning websites. Gab, another social media platform popular with conservatives, also uses Epik. A web domain search shows that Parler is now registered with Epik.

Tucker Carlson’s frightening
summation of what’s
happening in America
Posted by Magnante 1/12/2021 8:42:21 AM Post Reply
On his Monday Fox News program, Tucker Carlson spelled out what America’s corporate overlords are doing in America. Essentially, they are “de-personing” anyone who dares to question what happened in America on November 3-8 or who even supports Trump. In a world run on computers, they are unplugging everyone who does not toe their party line. (snip) The usually ebullient Tucker is manifestly upset, even angry at what’s happening in America. (snip) He then castigated the new selective enforcement of laws, which means they’re not laws or justice at all. They are merely tyrannical whims. What’s happening now is collective punishment
Trump’s An ‘Imminent Threat’? Dems
Have Been Saying That For 4 Years

"Donald Trump poses an imminent threat, not just to another person but to all of humanity.” That was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week justifying an immediate impeachment trial of Trump, right? Nope. That was from an article published in 2017 about a book by a group of psychiatrists who, having never met or talked to Trump, decreed that for the sake of the human race he had to be removed from office. Throughout Trump’s presidency, in fact, he’s been described as an “imminent threat” to the future of the country. Tom Steyer said in 2017 that “he really is

I’ve been ranting for years about the perfidy of the left. At times I’ve been accused of exaggerating. On rare occasions I feared – or hoped? – that perhaps I was exaggerating. In fact I can now see that these people are worse than I ever imagined. Worse than most of us ever imagined. Worse, even, than Donald Trump, with all his insight, imagined. He went into office determined to clean up the swamp. He was tireless. But not tireless enough. No mere mortal could have been tireless enough. Trump had denounced the swamp in apocalyptic terms, but it proved to be even deeper and more extensive than he knew.

Biowarfare is as the ancients dumping corpses in each other’s wells, and by the Cold War, both sides had developed storehouses of biological weapons alongside their nuclear weapons. Mutually Assured Destruction kept the world from dying from radiation poisoning or plague. (Snip) The consensus was that any use of nuclear weapons on the battlefield would be apocalyptic. The People’s Republic of China may have disproven that theory using not nuclear, but biological weapons, to secure a strategic victory while avoiding any retaliation for its biowarfare attack. Instead of escalating military tensions, the PRC made itself economically indispensable to America’s elites allowing it to carry out an attack under the cover of plausible deniability.

“The Republican nominee for president will be that candidate who best learns that there is no future in apologizing,” I wrote in a June 10, 2015, column. Six days later Donald Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower and, in so doing, launched the most volatile period in American history since the Civil War. (snip) Reportedly, Louisiana Governor Huey Long was once asked, “Do you think we will ever have Fascism in America?” Said Long, “Sure, only we'll call it anti-Fascism.” What Trump exposed, and which may prove of more lasting value than what he accomplished, was the real-life unfolding of Long’s paradox.

Trump, not Obama, on Iran
Posted by Imright 1/12/2021 4:41:34 AM Post Reply
We already knew that President-elect Joe Biden is resolved to re-enter the lousy nuclear deal his former boss, President Barack Obama, struck with Iran. But by choosing someone who has negotiated not one, but two nuclear disasters, Biden is setting up the nation for a rerun of past failures, as well as worsening relations with key Mideast allies.Normally, a new administration’s pick for deputy secretary of state doesn’t get much attention. But Biden’s decisions to tap Wendy Sherman for the post and to give her the task of reviving the Iran deal indicate that he lacks a leader’s humility to learn from the achievements of his reviled predecessor.
