I will never trust another doctor

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 9/14/2021 4:21:47 AM

It happened again yesterday, twice. Reading through comments on a blog post I found this: "I will never trust another doctor again." I long ago lost count of the number of times I have seen that written. You hear it, too. In private conversations with people they trust, American citizens are heaping contempt on doctors for forcing a narrative on us that had no basis in science. Many of us, perhaps even the majority, immediately recognized this virus for what it is -- a common flu virus

Every word true. And more, you don't need all those tests, and you would be better off without most of those prescriptions. The doctors have abandoned their nurses, those who do all the hard work. Doctors will have to face those nurses when they return, and the atmosphere is not going to be friendly. I expect those nurses are going to be reporting the doctors who make any mistakes a lot more readily. Hospitals too. The hospital administration has stabbed their nurses in the back, and are laying them off without severance, or even the courage to provide a termination letter. They know the lawsuits are coming. The Biden administration knows all this is illegal, but are doing it anyway. They may be right, because the SC and the judges are never going to be trusted again either. Keep your liberty, and your health, just say no. They can lay you off, but where do they think their revenue comes from? Doctors without patients, hospital without patients or nurses. I can't see that working. BTW, the dam hospitals are not full. That is another lie. The hospitals have been forced to take medicaid patients, where they get 30% on the dollar, and this has forced the closing of almost all the rural and suburban hospitals. Moreover, the nurses are revealing that anyone testing Covid, along with other complaints, is hospitalized, even though asymptomatic. In other words, half their Covid patients are asymptomatic.

In the future, doctors will be trusted, just as much as we trust politicians. In the meantime, these guys are self-treating. Many have shot themselves in the foot. and are now using crutches.

"First do no Harm" is no longer anywhere near the code of the modern health service. It's now How can I scam the system and appease the Nanny State so as to not lose access to the teat.

Silly article! 662,000 deaths in the US to date. Currently, there are about 90,000 Covid patients in hospital, 20,000 in ICU’s. All looked after by (hold your breath!) doctors.

Allow me to offer an explanation about how physicians have changed their ways over the past 30 years. First came the threat of Hillarycare, which resulted in small hospital buyouts/takeovers by big hospitals.. That led to physicians becoming employees of large group hospitals. (Here in western Pennsylvania, the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, bought out and controlled most local hospitals.) That central control, plus physicians as employees, allowed the central authority of UPMC to dictate much of what a physician does. Obolacare put the icing on the health care cake. Computerized records, brought by Obolacare, provided for some efficiency of operations, but it also allowed the bosses to keep track of productivity. It also allowed for intrusive review of treatment protocols. All of this caused many physicians to take early retirement. And those who stayed had to watch their mouths.

Their most heinous act was following the CDC protocol to tell people to stay home until they couldn't breathe and then go to the ER, rather than treat them early when it would help. They knew this! For years they prescribed tamiflu and told us, "You have to start it in the first two days of the flu, so it can keep the virus from multiplying. If you wait until day 4 it won't do any good at all." The deep state needed death, panic, and confinement to pull off the desired election results. Both governors and doctors assisted in the slam dunk play. They will answer for all these needless deaths.

FTA: "Our doctors in the field could have saved us from this disaster. They should have stood up to Anthony Fauci, who may well be evil personified. Instead, they were complicit in the hoax. They furthered the lie because it made them powerful." Mt husband's cardiologist asked both of us if we had been vaccinated. I said we had not. He looked at us with utter contempt and began regurgitating the COVID lies. He just about called us idiots in the process.

V has it. Once upon a time, a doctor was a small business who provided a service directly to patients and did not answer to insurance companies. Their relationship was with the pharmacist, not the pretty young drug rep. To be a doctor was to be an autonomous professional. Now the economic incentives are with big pharma and insurance health care network conglomerates. Don’t trust your doctors, but don’t blame them either.

If you have ever worked in science or medicine, then you know that those people are just people. They are as political as anyone but they have a lot of power. They have no qualms about pushing their opinions for money.

You wake up one morning feeling bad. You decide to call your Doctor. You get a recorder---------it says if this is an emergency go to the ER. It isn't an emergency you just feel bad. You want to see the Doctor. Fine--------you get an appointment for two weeks from today If you feel bad enough you either go to the emergency room or Urgent care. But your Doctor only wants to see you when there is easy money in it.

Welcome to the club. I've worked with doctors and surgeons for years. Many are fairly nice people, some are so obnoxious however, they repeal any good they might do. I started calling many of them " Legends in their own minds". This virus crap has exposed the various number of opinions that doctors have concerning this virus. Many have let politics invade their opinions, but don't let them hear you say that, because they will lash out and say you don't know what your talking about. We have MD after our names, and know it all.

The real lesson should be to not trust people with power. Doctors have been handed power out of proportion to how their services are valued by the aggregate free will of society. That is a byproduct of handing power to government beyond that needed to perform their limited constitutional role.

Big Government. Big Pharma. Big Medicine. Too many similarities to be a coincidence. Poster #5 is spot-on. Some very good, sincere, wonderful doctors now have to kowtow to their Group Health superiors in order to keep their own livelihoods intact.

Once again, may I point out that #4 only shows up on covid related threads? He’s obviously a paid troll. I haven’t only given up on doctors; I’ve given up on “western medicine” almost entirely. I go to a holistic practice these days. And an acupuncturist.

Good article. My distrust of physicians began 25 years ago, when I observed a growing number of friends and relatives who were malpracticed. Then I became resentful when so many doctors jumped on board with Obamacare. My advice, be very selective when choosing a primary physician. Don’t accept a minimalist, or someone with an Arab name. If a physician ever starts an exam room conversation with, “what is the reason for your visit,” or “why are we seeing you today,” drop him/her immediately.

I have this vision to start a Covid Clinic here in western NC, where people can get detailed instructions on beefing up their immune systems naturally as well as HCQ, Ivermectin, Budesonide, etc, for prophylaxis and treatment. Can you imagine it? The virus would be conquered. Any doctors on board?

Yet "Dr" Fauci was just on tv saying he'd probably support the mandate for a vaccine passport. We've had enough of these lies. I was talking with someone the other day who knew 2 people who died a week after getting the covid booster shot. We have to demand to hear those stats also.

I am faithful to my doc. She is an exception. Devotes time to patients. During covid, she developed a treatment for her patients. Using a type of shingles vax. She was not allowed to see her hospitalized patients. Docs practicing at local hospitals would not let her treat patients. One of a kind. I trust her. Yeah I agree with the general opinions on this article. Hospitals and doctors are money grubbing folks who don't know who their father is. The whole "system" is run on money. A "cheap drug" can not be used. But one that costs 3K a pop is okay. I wish everyone would be lucky enough to have a doc like mine...she cares.

I’ve had bad experiences with doctors since I was a kid. My mother was very trusting of doctors. Ironically, she died on the operating table. Now when I get a physical the doctor says: “What the heck did they do to you?” They? They were one of you. When my wife was pregnant, she was given a form she was required by the state to fill out indicating whether she wanted a test for fetal abnormalities. She said she didn’t want it. The doctor asked about it, so my wife asked what the treatment would be if they found abnormalities. The doctor said the only treatment was abortion. My wife said then she doesn’t need the test, because she wouldn’t get an abortion. The doctor proceeded to scream at her for a few minutes. It’s not hard to see how this can happen. Not only do you have to be smart to be a doctor. You also have to be able to game the system to make sure you get the top scores in school. Then when you become a doctor you’d better not upset the apple cart or you will lose your license.

I haven't trusted doctors and the medical profession for a long time. As a military family, we had 24-hour access to medical care, but we only used it when necessary. As my grandmother aged, we started to see bottles of medicine line her shelves in the kitchen. She had a pill for every ailment she suffered. She didn't take them, but she dutifully got those prescriptions filled. The doctors benefitted by billing MC and pharmacies and drug companies made money hand over foot from my grandmother and other elderly people. People used to be able to buy a house and pay cash until government got involved. People used to pay as they went for medical care until government got involved. Getting an education was relatively inexpensive until government got involved. I could go on and on. Government is not our friend, and it's not our savior. Big government is our straight up enemy.

They refused treatment if someone showed up with symptoms. Told them to go home and wait it out. If they got sicker they were willing to admit them and give them a ventilator, when many times (esp. for the elderly) it was too late. If this was just stupidity we would be lucky. If you deny treatment people die. If they die you can blame Trump. If you can blame Trump you have to print less bogus ballots. Those were their orders. The AMA, like the CDC, is a rabid Left wing organization. Medical science is no longer their basic guiding principle.

#25, I had a similar experience to your wife’s. I was pregnant back in 1989 and was “high risk” so was going to a special clinic at Johns Hopkins. That hospital is so big that you’re treated like a number instead of a person. They wanted me to have an amniocentesis to check for birth defects and I said no. They were horrified and asked why and I said that the only reason to do that would be to have the option of getting an abortion. Then I told them that I would happily receive whatever child God chose to give me. We never went back. Ultimately I lost that baby at 4 months gestation and a year later we adopted our wonderful daughter.

Trusting my doctors has been on a long slow slide culminating in the covid 19 debacle.....started when they tried to talk me into an abortion because I was too old to have a healthy baby at age 40 and then when they began to ask if I had guns in my home. It moved on to recommending everyone get shots for sexually transmitted diseases whether they engaged in promiscuity or not. Moving ahead to insisting we get annual flu shots which we never did. The doctors and their covid 19 response was predictable if you look back at the trajectory.

We've been operating (no pun intended) in a rigged system for quite some time. Many of our doctors just consume the information given to them and DO NOT question the information. They've all been trained to be good bureaucrats who perform their tasks, collect their checks and move right along. Bureaucratics doctors and nurses = fatalities.

I stopped trusting doctors decades ago, when it became obvious that their care and recommendations were often controlled by a quota system driven by insurance companies. It is always cheaper to tell a patient, "take two aspirin and call me tomorrow". or to just make no rec at all, than to refer the patient to the specialist he needs to see. And if the patient dies in the meantime, as happened to a close friend of mine, think of all the money the ins co. has saved! In today's world of compromised doctors, you must become your own expert in whatever your personal ailment might be...unless your willing to trust someone whose goal is to save money, not (necessarily) to save you.

#10 is entirely correct. The virus has killed hundreds of thousands. I come from a medical family. The doctors and nurses of them endorse getting vaccinated, as does my primary physician. Those who are vaccinated are less likely to get the virus and if they do get it the effects are mild. There is no reason for young people, especially children, to get the shots. Fauci needs to be put through the wringer. Other health bureaucrats as well.

Poster #5 is exactly right! Physicians in private practice typically used to be autonomous with affiliations to local hospitals. This is no longer the case for most. My long-time physician told me they were not even allowed to choose the paint color of their exam rooms after they were bought out by a huge conglomerate!

Some docs are good and capable folks. Some docs are superstars. Others border on being dangerous or are dangerous. A friend has taught MD students anatomy for 25 years in medical school. We have discussed his students' talents several times. He reports that about 10% are truly brilliant, and will be the kind of docs you just hope to get. About another 25-30% are very bright, dedicated and will be excellent doctors, but not quite superstars. The roughly 40-50% are well meaning plodders, who will be aware of their limitations and while not great, will probably be safe, but not innovators. They will likely send patients that they are unsure of to a specialist, not a bad thing. The lower 10-20% are potentially dangerous, but most are aware of their limitations and will quickly transition to medical administrative posts and not do much in the way of actually seeing patients beyond the minimum requirements. Dr. Fraud is apparently one of these, with a large dose of arrogance. I have run into docs in several of these classes. Most painful was a Ken doll looking fool who was the sole ER doc on Sunday PM duty when I presented with a dislocated shoulder. After looking over the X-ray, which showed an obvious dislocation to my eye, he said "Well, I can't see anything wrong." He hurt me terribly in trying to move it, and I had to warn him twice very forcefully not to touch me again as I decided to leave. A real orthopedic doc fixed the dislocation the next day, and diagnosed it in a glance from 4 feet away in a second once the shirt came off. HUGE differences in docs, but all have the paperwork, skilled or not.

Well, I have to say that the orthopedic surgeon who put in my new knee is a superstar. I did 13 miles in rough terrain in the mountains of Wyoming on it a bit over a week ago and it was never the slightest issue. Feet got sore and I got tired.....but the new knee was no problem. Not all docs are fools, and not all docs are superstars. Judge each individually.

Years ago, I asked a relative, then in her late 80s, what the secret to her longevity was. Her answer was "I stay away from doctors...." She then proceeded to give me several examples of why she said that. After watching doctors treat other relatives over the years, I see her point. I've seen doctors prescribe so many meds to friends and relatives that they were drugged-out zombies, run endless tests with no definitive answer, yet decline to try a cheap, common-sense option like a round of antibiotics, and finally, assure someone that a fairly serious side effect "isn't caused by the vaccine," despite not being able to say what DID cause the condition. By not admitting that the "vaccine" was at least in the range of possibilities, they totally wrecked their credibility, and for what? I've always approached suggested medical care with a healthy dose of skepticism, but that skepticism has now doubled. I doubt it will ever diminish in the future.

This article is spot on. My wife and I had CoVid before it was a thing. But, she got a Moderna double jab 5 months ago. I’m still a CoVid vaccine virgin. Anyway, the jabs caused severe neurological damage which, while she is improving, is still severe. No way am I getting the shot. Luckily, I have enough Go To He11 money if any employer has requires it. At my last physical, my Dr out and out lied to me. He even called the CDC (Center to Destroy the Country)’s website conspiracy theories and bullsh1t because they contradicted his conspiracy theories and bullsh1t to try to bully me into getting the jab. He’s not been much benefit over the years, except he orders blood tests for my physical so I can see where I am, and I can for find out what, but if any supplements I need. That’s what’s worked for me the last several years. As far as I’m concerned, he’s a zombie in a lab coat!

#34, no they are not, if you're referring to the US alone. The CDC medical paper site has a paper that measured Death Certificate causes through Dec 2020. They reported only 5.5% of the deaths were from the kung flu, vs another cause while PCR testing indicated kungflu infection. There is a further bit of research in the last few months which indicate it might be 6% of DC now reporting only the KungFlu. And another which concludes the actual death rate from this may be as much as 1/10 of 1%. In other words, an average or better influenza season. Or the paper reporting that 8 kids died of it (newBorn to 17yo) out of all the thousands of kids hospitalized. While the 2017-2018 and 2019-2020 flu season had over 100 deaths of kids in that age range when hospitalized.

There are doctors who will treat early symptoms of COVID while risking their medical licenses to do so. We have them in East TN. They are great. As citizens of your state you must demand your state legislators write laws to defend these heroes and the pharmacists who will fill early treatment scripts. Stay out of the hospital where they will slap you on a vent so they can collect 39,000 dollars to start. You will die on the vent, but they don't care.

Thank you for posting this fine piece. I come from a family of three generations of physicians. They all would agree with this except may two who are in their 30’s, greatly affected by progressive medical schools. There are some good physicians but it can keep your thinking straight to understand the SYSTEM they work for is not friendly to your efforts to YOU keeping YOURSELF healthy. Their practice generally have agreed upon the narrative of their group as to all of this vaccine stuff. So if you bump against a nasty attitude, simply go elsewhere when they treat you harshly. Hit them in the pocketbook. Believe me, it is noticed if a patient leaves the practice and they have GOOD insurance!!

My father was a top Detail Man at a pharmaceutical company (Schering) for some 35 years. He always told us even then that most doctors are quacks. He knew more about medicine than they did (even though he only went to university for pre-med). But he worked with the doctors and pharmacists all the time and always was reading up on medical news. My point is, however, that even before the destruction of the healthcare industry when managed care and the bean counters were driving up costs and profits (and making it less personal) and later with Zerocare and the more recent changes, not as many doctors were truly practicing medicine to help people anymore. Too many were more into the prestige and financial gain than actually providing health care. Golfing, sailing, horse breeding and trips around the world were the goals of many of them. And all these professional organizations were more and more influential on how the doctors practiced, limiting what doctors do , especially in exceptional cases. Now, on top of e everything else, we have the CDC, WHO and NIH, who are all corrupt and full of politicians, telling doctors what they can and cannot do or prescribe. Most doctors don't question it either. That said, independent researchers have found poisonous materials in the COVID non-vaccines (they are not real vaccines) that acts just like COVID and makes it more transmissible. Also, the CDC just changed the definition of "vaccine" on their website in order to continue to deceive the public. Despite what is being found and the many deaths of people who have taken the shot, the alphabet organizations lie and say it's safe and so the doctors tell their patients the same and to get it. No, I cannot trust the doctors--especially now. Even good ones, like my partner's PA (not really a doctor but can prescribe), doesn't know the truth about the shot. She only knows the company line. So, for something like this "pandemic", I cannot even trust her--though I trust her for many other things. By the way, the CDC announced a while back they are no longer going to track how many vaccinated people got re-infected. It seems they are too lazy to have an extra box added to their database that asks if the patient was vaccinated or not. They claim it is too much work. We know there are other reasons....just as the media is hiding the fact that re-infection rate is higher for vaccinated persons. It hurts their fake narrative that the delta variant is the "pandemic of the unvaxxed".

I trust my doctors. Like I have a choice. They write the prescriptions that let me take 20 plus pills a day. But sometimes I get the idea they are trying to drum up business for colleagues when the send me to specialists. Hope this won't offend anyone but I had a doc that was a gun nut (or firearms enthusiast if that offends you). He gave me a form that asks how many guns do you have. And I refused to answer it.

One more thing in response to #4 that ties into what I just wrote...a top physician and epidemiologist brought up a good point the other day: Why aren't we treating the folks who get COVID when it has been successfully treated with monoclonal antibodies, steroids and blood thinners. He also mentioned that most cases can be treated at home. There are also remedies using some basic supplements. He said it seems all the emphasis has been on this jab, but very little attention is given to treatment.

Why a ‘National Divorce’ Cannot Be
Civil, but Would Inevitably Mean Civil War
8 replies
Posted by Magnante 10/15/2021 3:48:27 AM Post Reply
Many conservatives have talked recently about the need for a “national divorce” due to irreconcilable differences with the progressive left. (snip) We are talking about secession. And secession, in America, is anything but a civil or amicable process, and it’s useless to imagine it would be otherwise. It’s only truly been attempted once, after all, and it led to the bloodiest war in our history. (snip) There was war because there was a bedrock, nation-defining question around the legitimacy of state secession that had yet to be answered. That answer to that question was finally settled in 1865.

The United States is now on its knees. It has been shamed before the world. It’s in a state of collapse. It is in a relentless downward spiral, the Babylon of this era, a nation on its way to the graveyard of history. We’re hearing this from the left (snip) The American Left always uncases “America” when they screw up. Whenever there’s a disaster, a failure, or a crime, it’s always “America” that done it. For one prominent example, consider the Nisei relocation of 1942.

I've never watched The View other than clips of notable segments offering a glimpse into the minds of female progressive media people. One such four-minute mini-discussion took place Tuesday that, I think, reveals that the gun-grabbers have lost the battle for control of the narrative on gun ownership. Gun ownership by Blacks is rapidly expanding in the wake of the George Floyd riots and the demonization of police (snip) What really struck me was Joy Behar citing the history of gun control as a means of keeping Blacks disarmed (snip) Behar even predicted that now that Blacks are buying firearms, we'll see more gun control efforts!

When Joe Biden comes onto the TV screen, I switch to another channel. Not because he’s a stark reminder of the fraud that put him into the Oval Office but since he reminds me of my father—may he rest in peace—who passed away in 1992 following several dreadful years with dementia/Alzheimer’s. (snip) The world witnessed Biden’s bewilderment during the G-7 meeting in Cornwall, England. Just like dad confusing California (where he had lived for nearly a decade) with New York (where he moved from) Biden continually confused Libya with Syria. During a private G-7 reception Biden mistakenly wandered away and into a cafeteria

Critics have been calling on Netflix to cancel Dave Chappelle’s new special titled The Closer. However, the Hollywood actor/comedian's show currently has a 96 percent audience score at Rotten Tomatoes, making it somewhat doubtful that the cancel mob will get their way this time. Chappelle has been fighting an ongoing war with the LGBTQ community for more than a decade. (snip) Chappelle has come under fire from the transgender community again, this time for siding with Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling (snip) Rowling was viciously attacked by transgender activists, who labeled her a “TERF.” The word TERF is an acronym that stands for “Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist.”

COVID has been with us for more than a year and a half, along with masks and distancing, since last year, and vaccine mandates, passports, and booster shots have been added. (snip) more are dead under the steady seasoned hand of Joe Biden, and the year is only three quarters over. How can this be? (snip) Countries or states with high vaccination rates that are now experiencing a surge in cases, higher than last year, may answer that question.
Vermont Boasts Highest Rates of Injection

Vermont’s RINO Governor has been hailed as having “saved” the state from the scourge of COVID by “leading the nation” in high vaccination rates, but now the boondoggle of bunk COVID science is home to roost in the Green Mountains -- the state has the highest rate of infection nationally. The layers of COVID fog are starting to clear, as reality eclipses the fantastic lies of the government and medical establishment. Initially, Americans were told that natural immunity from COVID-19 was “unlikely” for those already infected. Now, it turns out it is the vaccines that wane -- 76% of Vermont COVID-19 fatalities from breakthrough infections are “among the first vaccinated.”

Let’s do a little thought experiment. The Turtle got eleven Republicans in the Senate to vote for cloture on the debt limit extension. Many Conservatives are screaming that he surrendered and all is lost. But what would have happened if he hadn’t done that? (snip) No Republican voted to increase the debt limit. And it’s unlikely that any will, since now the Dems can do it without Republican help. The spectacle will be fifty Democrats voting in favor against fifty Republicans voting “No.” Kamala Harris will cast the tie-breaking vote

Anyone paying attention knows that America is fast polarizing to become two distinct factions. (snip) Let’s first consider the political dynamics in 1860. America was similarly divided into two general factions, then defined as “free” and “slave” states. Then, there was no mass exodus occurring from the free states to the slave states. What doomed the Southern slave states, both economically and politically, was slavery itself. (snip) unlike the South in 1860, the dynamics driving the secessionist impulse of the red states are not due to their inability to compete in the economic and political landscape among free Americans in our constitutionally federalist system.

This past week, Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann, and Giorgio Parisi were awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics for research that led to early computer models of the Earth's climate. On the face of it, some people might think this is a grand achievement. In reality, unlike many Nobel-worthy accomplishments that are based on hard data or newly known processes, this one was simply a guess. Incredibly, we still don’t have an answer, more than 60 years later. (snip) the bottom line is climate models then and now still don’t provide a certain answer as to how much warming will occur

Is it really a surprise that a formal move toward police repression of its political opponents – siccing the FBI on critics of Critical Race Theory – is coming from the chief law enforcement officer of the Biden regime? The latest polling indicates that the already low public approval of the Biden presidency is declining further. The prospects for any improvement in these numbers are poor. (snip) The term “crisis of confidence” has been in play for at least a month (snip) More than half of Americans say 55 - 42 percent that the Biden administration is not competent in running the government.

I'm going to try to explain what's going on in America right now by drawing a connection between two news stories. On the surface, they don't seem to have much to do with each other, but when you really think about them, it's obvious that there's a common thread. The first story comes from way back in November of 2018, when President Trump complained about an "Obama judge" on the Ninth Circuit ruling against his asylum policy. Trump's comments angered Chief Justice John Roberts (snip) Now for the second (snip) YouTube's decision, about a week ago, to ban all content questioning the efficacy of COVID vaccines.

Amateur hour: Pete Buttigieg's inexperience

Posted by Moritz55 10/14/2021 1:26:06 AM Post Reply
Three years ago, the only people who’d ever heard of Pete Buttigieg were likely to be residents of South Bend, Ind., the town of 103,000 people where he served as mayor. South Bend is home to Notre Dame University. It has a bus station with a fleet of 60 buses, a small train station and a small regional airport. So, who better for Team Biden to nominate as secretary of the Department of Transportation, which employs more than 58,000 employees – more than half the population of South Bend – and has a budget of $87 billion?

"Research obtained by a group of scientists shows the COVID vaccine spike protein can travel from the injection site and accumulate in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in 'quite high concentrations' in the ovaries." This is what Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology warned about. The spike proteins are not staying at the injection site and they are dangerous. Protein in the blood can be very dangerous. A Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week, “We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario.

The White House has been consulting with the oil industry to seek a remedy for rising gasoline prices as surging inflation threatens to tarnish the economic recovery, according to three people familiar with the discussions. The latest outreach to the oil industry is an awkward shift for the Biden administration, which has pledged to move the country away from fossil fuels and has drawn criticism from the industry and Republicans for pausing lease sales of federal land for oil and gas development.

President Biden on Thursday said the number of unvaccinated Americans still remains "unacceptably high," but insisted that his administration's vaccine requirements for the federal workforce and private employers are "working" to ensure more individuals receive shots to protect against COVID-19. During remarks from the White House Thursday, the president touted his administration's "progress" in the "fight against the virus." "We're making progress nationally. Daily cases are down 47%, hospitalizations are down 38% over the past six weeks," Biden said. "Over the past two weeks, most of the country has improved as well.

Ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wins
back full pension after Trump firing

Washington–Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has won back his full pension as part of a settlement of his lawsuit arising from his firing during the Trump administration more than three years ago, his lawyers announced Thursday. McCabe, a frequent target of then-President Donald Trump’s ire, was fired in March 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the Justice Department’s inspector general determined he had misled internal investigators about his involvement in a news media leak. The termination came hours before he was to have retired, denying him his pension. McCabe has denied intentionally deceiving anyone, was never criminally charged and blasted his firing as politically motivated.
Mark Zuckerberg spent $419M on nonprofits

During the 2020 election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely Democratic voters. But this wasn’t traditional political spending. He funded a targeted, private takeover of government election operations by nominally nonpartisan — but demonstrably ideological — nonprofit organizations.Analysis conducted by our team demonstrates this money significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states. In places like Georgia, when Biden won by 12,000 votes, and Arizona, where he won by 10,000, the spending likely put him over the top.

CNN sounded the alarm Monday over recent campaign blunders made by Democratic Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, suggesting his comments could jeopardize his already slim margins in the race against Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin. During a discussion about the race on CNN's "Inside Politics," host John King admitted it was "noteworthy" to see a Democratic candidate playing cleanup so close to the end of the race considering Virginia had been trending more and more towards Democrats. He specifically pointed to comments McAuliffe made about President Joe Biden's downward trending poll numbers and parents not having a say on what their kids learn in school as the reason his edge

Walgreens is shuttering another five of its stores in crime-ridden San Francisco because of rampant shoplifting by thieves who waltz past security guards and sell the items outside the drugstore chain's doors. The national chain has closed 17 of its 70 San Francisco locations in the past two years because of the shelf raiders, who have swiped everything not behind lock and key. Thefts in the chain's 53 remaining stores are five times the average for their stores elsewhere in the country, according to company officials.

The number of illegal migrants released into the United States by the Biden administration is staggering. Fox News obtained an exclusive story with documents from the Border Patrol. They are being released with little or no supervision and no fear of deportation. The fact is that no matter how many times DHS Secretary Mayorkas says the border is closed, the numbers don’t lie. Since March, at least 160,000 illegal migrants have been released into the United States. There is a broad use of limited parole authority that made more than 30,000 migrants eligible for work permits
