White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci on Sunday said he does not believe we are ever going to reach a point where Americans won’t be required to wear masks on airplanes due to Covid-19 concerns. ABC News This Week host Jonathan Karl asked Fauci about comments from several of the CEOs of top airlines that “you are actually safer than you are in an ICU” on a plane because of the filtration systems on flights. Karl asked if we will reach a point where we don’t have to wear masks on airplanes. “I don’t think so,” Fauci said. “I think when you’re dealing with a close space,

Having traveled by air this week, the mask mandate was in full force and hasn't slowed down anything. Every seat was filled and the airlines are making up for lost business. Also, noticed the seats were loser together than I remember from when I last flew in 2019. I don't know how a larger person can fit. It's really silly to see the mask Nazi / flight attendant making sure everyone had their mask up over the top of their nose. They looked like trained seals. Didn't Fauci say the masking doesn't prevent you from Catching the virus. The only redeeming benefit is protection from those who cough and sneeze. Next time I fly it will have it be business class. A great use for frequent flyer miles.

I started flying lessons long before this Covid-19 farce. We didn't know what we didn't know when it started, but now we know a lot more. Anyway, the mask mandate is just another reason to get my pilot's license and airplane. I have my eye on a plane that cruises 2X highway speed limits and gets 25 MPG in still air.

Senator Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) on Monday dared Democrats to push him out of the party if they are unhappy with his views, one day after he announced he will not support President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda, effectively killing the bill. Asked on Hoppy Kercheval’s West Virginia radio show if he believes there is still a place for him in the Democratic party, Manchin replied: “I would like to hope that Democrats feel like I do. I’m fiscally responsible and socially compassionate.” “Now if there are no Democrats like that, they ought to push me where they want me,” he added.

Jonathan Weisman’s year in review for Congress, “Congress Ends ‘Horrible Year’ With Divisions as Bitter as Ever,” began dramatically and didn’t let up in its painting of the Republican Party as uniquely irrational, perhaps even like a “cult”: A congressional year that began with an assault on the seat of democracy ended at 4 a.m. Saturday with the failure of a narrow Democratic majority to deliver on its most cherished promises, leaving lawmakers in both parties wondering
The White House Prepares to Surrender

Per a new report, the White House is preparing to surrender on COVID. What exactly the word “surrender” means in this context is up for some debate, but I’ve got some thoughts on the matter. To get us there, though, the Biden administration is laying the groundwork to make the case for living with the coronavirus. That’s in stark contrast to the lofty promises Joe Biden made during the 2020 election, namely, that he’d “shut down the virus.” So is the administration actually surrendering to the virus itself? I wouldn’t say that because there was never any reality where we eradicated a virus that is clearly endemic and seasonal.

Never underestimate your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, even with a mutating virus afoot. Despite rising concerns over the omicron variant, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” not only shattered pandemic-era box office records; it became the third best opening of all time behind “Avengers: Endgame” ($357.1 million) and “Avengers: Infinity War" ($257.7 million). The Sony and Marvel blockbuster grossed a stunning $253 million in ticket sales from 4,325 North American locations, according to studio estimates on Sunday, also setting a record for the month of December.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is a nice guy. He did his best not to flame Joe Biden, despite Joe Biden falsely claiming that they had an agreement on Build Back Better (BBB) on the numbers — saying that was Biden’s statement, not his. Manchin has never said they had an agreement. Indeed, he has consistently said he was not there and had issues with it. But the Biden team isn’t very bright. They took that attempt of Manchin to be polite and give them a little cover for lying and decided to double down even further on the lie. Not only that, they are now attacking

Kamala told the Los Angeles Times that the administration couldn’t claim victory over the coronavirus and that’s true. Biden declared that COVID-19 no longer controlled our lives during his July 4 address.

We’ve been indicating that the Build Back Better bill was likely dead once the CBO numbers came in indicating how much it truly was going to cost — that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) wasn’t going to stand for it. Right down the line, Manchin had indicated that his chief concern was the huge price tag on the bill, which the Biden team initially claimed was $3.5 trillion. They then cut that down to about $1.8 trillion with some sleight-of-hand tricks on the social programs and not counting what they would cost over 10 years. But the CBO score revealed that if you looked

A polling firm run by Democratic pollster Doug Schoen is flashing big warning signs to the Democrats not only as to the midterms but as to their political prospects for the future. The Democrats should listen to this because it shows that now their own voters are throwing them over as well. As Schoen and his partner Carly Cooperman note, their new survey shows the Democratic prospects are “significantly deteriorating” and that the party is in an “increasingly unelectable and unsustainable position.” What’s the reason for this, in the pollsters’ view? The “ill-fated path of embracing progressive policies while overlooking manifest political realities.” It’s for this reason,

In chess, a gambit is when a player sacrifices a piece, usually a pawn, early in a game to obtain some larger competitive advantage. We can now say that the 13 Republicans who voted in early November to pass the infrastructure bill pulled off one of the most effective political gambits in recent memory. When Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., confirmed on Sunday that he is a no vote on the gargantuan Build Back Better spending bonanza, essentially killing it, it was vindication for the much-pilloried moderate GOP votes for infrastructure. To be sure, there was much to object to in the infrastructure bill, from electric charging stations to tree equity,

If you aren’t white, you may not be able to go way outside. At least, that appears to be the belief of a North Carolina State University professor. KangJae “Jerry” Lee — of the school’s College of Natural Resources — recognizes the racism keeping you from enjoying the great outdoors. Cultural differences, he asserts, can’t explain why there aren’t more black people fishing, hunting, and hiking. Also an insufficient excuse: income disparity. The instructor laments America’s adventure/nature gap, but he’s bulls-eyed the culprit: systemic racism. Wichita’s KAKE recently jawed it up with Jerry on the lack of outdoor equity.

The fact that the FBI has lost its way has been on public display for at least five years now. Truth be told, it probably strayed off course way before that. But during the Trump Presidency, it became too obvious to ignore. It has been involved in everything from the creation of an “insurance policy” against the peaceful transition of power, to the targeting of parents as domestic terrorists for the sin of disagreeing with school boards. How did our “premier law enforcement agency” stray so far from its motto of fidelity, bravery, and integrity? Simply put, the FBI’s current state is the result of horrible leadership.
