Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is continuing to criticize the NFL’s and the country’s handling of COVID-19, saying in an interview Tuesday that it had become unscientific dogma. In the interview on “The Pat McAfee Show,” the football star noted that his resistance to vaccine mandates had become a cause and produced social-media calls for his silencing or punishment by the league or Silicon Valley. “If science can’t be questioned, it’s not science anymore; it’s propaganda and that’s the truth,” he said. Rodgers noted that many NFL teams are quietly experimenting with various treatments unannounced. “When did science become this blind agreement and then not having any debate


Touchdown. He makes more sense than Doctor Fauci, who claims to be The Science, and most of the federal government.

I have become an Aaron Rodgers fan. I was getting impatient with his endless contract negotiations, but he at least is on the right side of this fight.

Since the everyday tax paying citizen is ignored daily by our Government, Let's be happy that someone like Rogers and/or Kyrie Irving become our picture of a thousand words. At the end of the day, these minions of propaganda should be executed for experiments on humanity.

Any NFL quarterback that throws only four interceptions in 14 games is quite capble of walking on water and making brilliant scientific pronouncements. Ave Aaron Rodgers!

Bart Starr led his team to 6 title games in 8 years, winning 5. Otto Graham led his team to 10 title games in 10 years, winning 7. Rogers has taken a stand for freedom. There is much to admire in Brady, Unitas, Starr, Graham, and Rogers.

White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients admitted Wednesday that the Biden administration won’t ink contracts to mass-mail 500 million COVID-19 rapid tests until “late next week” — despite a record-smashing wave of new US infections and a shortage of tests. The timeframe means it will take the White House nearly three weeks to start the process of making tests available after previewing the plan to combat the highly contagious Omicron variant Dec. 20. “The Department of Defense and HHS are executing on an accelerated contracting timeline. Companies are already submitting information and we expect the contract to be completed late next week,” Zients told reporters

A California middle school teacher who admitted she “totally stalked” student online activity to identify candidates for an LGBTQ club said her explosive comments were made “tongue in cheek,” according to a new report.

Rod Dreher at The American Conservative details the disturbing trend of school teachers openly bragging on popular social media platforms about indoctrinating young children in their classes with transgender and "sexual rights" instruction. "Call it confidence, or call it arrogance, but there are some young schoolteachers who brag on TikTok about telling the little kids in their class all about transgenderism and gender theory," Dreher writes. It comes also as a number of media reports in the US and UK have correlated the amount of time children spend online consuming content on apps like TikTok and their willingness to "come out" as a different gender, at increasingly young ages.

Boris Johnson faced pressure from across the political spectrum today to take action over soaring energy bills, tax rises and inflation to avoid a 'cost of living catastrophe' whacking the Covid-weary British public in 2022. The Prime Minister was urged to act as a think tank warned that next year will be the 'year of the squeeze', with households facing a hit of at least £1,200. The Resolution Foundation said that the public would face a choke point in April when the energy price cap is raised to account for eyewatering wholesale gas price increases, and a 1.25 percentage point increase in National Insurance contributions (NICs) comes into effect.

Rapid antigen tests for Covid may be less sensitive in detecting the Omicron variant and are leading to 'false negatives,' the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday. The FDA made preliminary findings using samples from patients confirmed to be infected with the new mutant strain. The federal agency said early results show that antigen tests 'do detect the Omicron variant but may have reduced sensitivity,' meaning it's possible the tests could miss an infection, known as a 'false negative.'(Snip)According to a meta-analysis of studies by the Cochrane Library, lateral flow tests detect an average of 72 percent of symptomatic cases and 58 percent of asymptomatic ones.

The House of Representatives has passed a bill that seeks to eradicate blasphemy against Islam. The bill, H.R. 5665, is truly remarkable as it amounts to Congress making a law respecting the establishment of Islam and reducing the United States government into a tool of the world’s ayatollahs. The actual text of the bill not only seeks to eradicate blasphemy against Islam around the world – and solely against Islam at that – but even requires the federal government to reorganize some portions of the State Department along the lines of an Islamic religious institution which will be responsible for interpreting the Quran.

Between Joe Biden’s poor poll numbers and his party being increasingly out of touch with the American public, the Democratic Party is widely expected to suffer devastating losses in the 2022 midterms. But prominent Democrat lawyer Marc Elias is predicting that Democrats will try to use litigation to prevent some duly elected Republicans from serving. “My prediction for 2022: Before the midterm election, we will have a serious discussion about whether individual Republican House Members are disqualified by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment from serving in Congress,” Elias tweeted last week. “We may even see litigation.” [Tweet] Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center scoffed at Elias’s absurd idea.
