#5 I can’t remember what El Rushbo called him but Mark Levin always called him Harry The Body Reid. Due to him being an amateur boxer CNN in his youth. In my opinion he will be remembered as one of the sleaziest and most corrupt politicians ever. As Senate Majority Leader he was more of a dirtbag than tiny Tom Daschle. He did more harm than good for my country so his passing means nothing.

He was a typical, nasty Democrat who lied and slandered his political enemies. I heard about his death on Fox News and was shocked when the commentator, Will Cain, praised him. Will Cain is very young so perhaps didn't know Reid was a real SOB.

Every country has a certain number of sleazy people in leadership positions but no country is better because of them. The exact extent to which Reid wielded power proportionately lessened the country’s attainment of greatness.. It is no surprise that Chuck Schumer would admire him. He was detestable.

Legacy of fails: Tried to cancel Rush- epic fail Tried to sue company that sold him exercise equipment (resistance bands) that blinded him in one eye when he misused them. Invoked the nuclear option, furthering the long standing Democrat pattern of eroding the Senate tradition of debate and fillibuster, purposefully designed to prevent majorities from imposing their will..the worst fail of all

I usually don’t waste time speaking ill of the dead - but in this case I’ll make an exception. Harry Reid was a no-good, prevaricating, backstabbing mongrel low-life criminal who would have stolen crab lice if he’d found a buyer. He used his office to enrich himself instead of serving his constituency. He’s face to face with the Devil right now, finding out what all that money and power are worth in Hell: nothing.

Pharma giant says exec misspoke, but comments chime with many who say Israel took risk on early vaccinations. An official at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer claimed that Israel was a "kind of laboratory" for the Covid-19 vaccine that his company developed, during a conference on Zoom last week. "Early in the pandemic we established a relationship with the Israeli Ministry of Health where they used exclusively the Pfizer vaccine and then monitored it very closely, so we had a sort of laboratory where we could see the effect (of the vaccine)," said Philip Dormitzer, Pfizer's Chief Scientific Officer, at the conference, later aired Friday by Channel 12.

Last night, President Joe Biden told reporters he would implement a vaccine requirement for domestic flights if his medical team recommended it. Earlier this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci did just that. The main problem, in addition to unconstitutional decrees issued by public health officials, is Americans have lost faith in the medical establishment to be honest and follow the science when issuing recommendations.

A Vanderbilt University professor argued that insects must compose a larger share of the world’s food supply.In an opinion piece for Bloomberg, Amanda Little — who teaches investigative journalism and science writing at the prestigious university — lauded the European Union’s recent decision to approve insects for human consumption. According to Little, the move ought to be carried out across the globe: The approval confers a kind of dignity to the lowly, protein-rich microbeasts that we foolishly dismiss as pests, and delivers a clear signal that the insect proteins industry is poised for significant growth.
