Manchin, Sinema turn on Biden, join others
holding him responsible for COVID test shortages

Original Article

Do better. That is the message from some Senate Democrats to Joe Biden’s White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeffrey Zients. In a letter signed by the senators, they urged him to do better in their COVID response plan, present that plan to Congress and request additional funds if needed to contain the pandemic. Two of the senators are Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Do you think maybe Biden’s heavy-handed approach to twisting their arms over blowing up the filibuster rules in order to get voting legislation passed that gives federal control over all elections may have something to do with their participation? Who could blame them

The last thing we need is free kits to tell whether we have an asymptomatic infection with virtually zero risk of serious medical consequences and minuscule marginal risk to others. Mark my words: the only purpose of the testing frenzy is to keep the populace frightened.

If Brandon and his fellow democrat cronies keep annoying Manchin and Sinema they might decide to join the R team. That would put an end to all of the socialist agenda items.

Yes, he's responsible. But, who cares? The tests are baloney, turn in positive if you test your transmission fluid, or a sample of lemon pie, I'll bet. And if you aren't feeling sick, what in the heck are you "testing" for, and if you ARE don't need a test to tell you that, do you? Since, EVEN IF YOU DO HAVE Wuhan flu.....they WILL NOT give you treatment in most places, why bother? My doc has me set for early treatment if it becomes necessary, but I'm still not interested in their phony-baloney tests.

Saw a great picture last night, don't remember where, of a looooooong line waiting outside a mall in Toronto to get a COVID test. The captions was..."if you can stand in line for hours in the cold, you aren't sick". People are irrational.

Manchin and Sinema, you might seriously consider leaving the dim caucus soonest and announce leaving the dim party before you get tarred and feathered by them. A couple more rinos amongst the pubbie party couldn't hurt.

Money for Covid tests was approved in March of last year. However, purchase orders for the test kits were issued just last week! By the time they get distributed, this pandemic spike will be history. Too late!

This is called survival. Biden can offer them nothing politically. Supporting him is increasingly an electoral death sentence. Their state parties are likely pressuring them to "resist"...the '22 election is truly all about Biden. I've been block walking...and even the Dems have had enough of all this.

The counting of cases at this time is pointless at this stage unless you want a statistic to scare people. We already know that it is wide-spread. The important statistics are the percentages of the population that require medical treatment, hospitalization, or die from Covid. The universal testing for Covid will greatly increase the case count, but nearly all of these will be those with little or no symptoms. Counting cases is grossly misleading because every positive test result counts as a case. If a person is tested 8 times, with positive result each time, that counts as 8 cases, If a person with multiple life threatening diseases and tests positive for Covid, it counted as a Covid death case. And, to provide incentive to do this, hospitals get extra money for Covid cases.

Hey Arizona! Where is does your other Democrat senator Mark Kelly stand on the national election takeover by the federal government or the Build Back Better fiasco? For a former US Navy Captain and space jockey Kelly seems to be very comfortable supporting the socialist agenda of Schumer, Pelosi and Brandon. I have to give Sinema and Manchin credit for standing up for what's best for all Americans.

Manhattan’s new liberal district attorney on Thursday walked back a memo he sent to staff earlier this month calling for the “decriminalization/non prosecution” of crimes including marijuana possession, turnstile jumping, trespassing, resisting arrest, interfering with an arrest and prostitution. “I understand why those who read my memo of January 3rd have been left with the wrong impression about how I will enforce New York’s laws,” DA Alvin Bragg said, according to Fox News’s Jacqui Heinrich. “I take full accountability for that confusion caused.” He continued: “First, the purpose of the memo is to provide prosecutors with a framework for how to approach cases in the best interest of safety and justice.

The only unity Joe Biden is producing for Americans is in disapproval of his performance in office. Both sides of the aisle are taking shots at him for his handling of the illegal immigrant crisis, for example. In an odd twist, the Biden administration finds itself in federal court defending its continuance of a Trump-era policy on asylum. More specifically, the Biden administration is arguing in support of Title 42, the rarely used public health policy that allows the Border Patrol to immediately turn back migrants over concerns of a contagious illness. In this case, it is the coronavirus pandemic. Migrants don’t have
CIA Says Most 'Havana Syndrome' Cases

The CIA has found that most of the 1,000 cases of “Havana Syndrome'” were not caused by actions taken by a hostile foreign power. The agency said that about two dozen cases remain unexplained and they will continue to investigate what caused them. But the upshot is that no physical evidence has yet been found to validate the theory of a directed energy weapon being used on American diplomats. And other evidence points in an entirely different direction, one involving the mysteries of the brain. Havana Syndrome first appeared at the Cuban embassy in 2016 when a couple of dozen diplomats

Many continue to worry about experiencing side effects from vaccines -- especially the COVID-19 vaccines -- but new data from a comprehensive meta-analysis suggests there is little to fear. The study from Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center found that a large number of side effects reported by patients after receiving their shot can be attributed to the placebo effect. Researchers examined 12 vaccine safety trials, involving thousands of people, and compared rates of side effects reported between those who received a placebo shot and those who received a real shot. They found that after the first shot, two-thirds of people experienced side effects

The U.S. Supreme Court denied on Thursday abortion providers’ latest request to intervene in the ongoing legal challenge against Texas’ restrictive abortion law, cutting off one of their few remaining paths to a speedy victory. The case is currently before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which sent the case to the Texas Supreme Court. That is expected to add months to the legal proceedings. Abortion providers were hoping the U.S. Supreme Court would direct the 5th Circuit to send the case to federal district court, where a judge previously blocked the law.

Democrats' attempt to use a "nuclear option" to get around the filibuster for two major elections bills failed Wednesday after the gambit from Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was stymied by Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Manchin, D-W.Va., and Sinema, D-Ariz., joined all Senate Republicans in opposing the attempt to alter the Senate filibuster on party lines, resulting in a 48-52 final tally. That vote followed a failed attempt by Democrats to advance the election bills over the Senate's 60-vote filibuster threshold. All Republicans opposed it.

If President Joe Biden’s press conference Wednesday was supposed to inspire confidence, it failed — horribly. Even though he spent most of it clearly calling on reporters from a list of “safe” questioners provided by his staff, he stumbled and bumbled and all too often made no sense at all. Plus, he repeated his bizarre “whisper shout” gimmick to emphasize certain points — when what it actually emphasizes is his age. On that note, he kept walking down memory lane, reminiscing about how “in my day” cable news was like that; the Republican Party was like this, and so on. He’s fighting old wars in his head,

Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a sweeping election bill, setting up a doomed push by Senate Democrats to try to change the chamber’s legislative filibuster. Senators voted 49-51, falling short of 60 votes needed to advance the legislation that combines the Freedom to Vote Act, which would overhaul elections and campaign finance laws, with the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which strengthens the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Democrats spent the hours leading up to the vote making an 11th hour plea for the legislation — directed at both Republicans and their own members — warning that the votes would go down as a crucial moment in history.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Thursday brought a fruit basket to the Capitol for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, thanking the chamber's top Democrat for forcing his vulnerable members on the record in a vote to get rid of the legislative filibuster. NRSC spokesman Chris Hartline foreshadowed the move in a December interview with Fox News. "If Schumer continues down this path… I think we'll send him a gift basket or something," Hartline said. "It's not about the rule itself. It's about why they do it," he added. "They're not trying to change the rules so they can more easily name post offices.

Every three months or so, Joe Biden awakes from his slumber and does a “press conference.” The infrequency of the events is only topped by the absurdity of how they always play out. The president shows up with a binder to read from, calls on pre-selected reporters, and rarely receives a tough question (and when he does, he blows it off and moves on). Today’s “press conference” was no different. Biden spent several minutes touting his many supposed accomplishments, sharing misleading stats and gaslighting Americans on the failures of his first year in office. Here’s a bit of what that sounded like.

I’m not sure what Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) thought he was going to get by pushing a vote on the Democratic effort to federalize elections (which they call ‘voting rights’) and on the filibuster. Schumer knew that he was likely to get a “no” on the filibuster from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). They’ve only been holding fast on the subject for months. Both also were very firm on the subject in speeches — Sinema earlier in the week and Manchin earlier on Wednesday. It wasn’t happening, they said. But Schumer decided to commit electoral suicide anyway, and he got it tonight.

While only rarely discussed and frequently dismissed as a mere curiosity, the mystery of the disappearing flu is actually one of the most important events of the past two years. Unpacking this mystery provides deep insights into the future trajectory of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, exposes the abject failure of the vaccines to control the pandemic, and puts the final nail in the coffin on futile public health measures like masks and social distancing.
