AP Photo/Alex Brandon As we head into the heart of the holiday season, Joe Biden is getting ready to announce new COVID restrictions in an escalation of the hysteria stemming from the new Omicron variant (never mind the lack of evidence that Omicron is a more dangerous variant). You’ll be less than shocked to learn that those new restrictions make no sense whatsoever and are a complete slap in the face to science and data, which probably means Dr. Anthony Fauci came up with them.
Per Fox News’ Peter Doocy, Biden will speak on Thursday to make what’s coming official. ALERT: Fox’s Peter Doocy says on Thursday the White House plans to announce some of the strictest Covid restrictions on Americans yet. pic.twitter.com/IMTT4RB1TA — Election Wizard (@ElectionWiz) December 1, 2021 Here’s what the new restrictions being prepared actually entail, and this is just what we know about so far. As we’ve seen at times in the past, Biden’s announcements have a tendency to be worse than originally reported. This is what the Biden administration wants to demand from fully vaccinated and boosted travelers. Are you kidding me? https://t.co/9mbsBGa7De pic.twitter.com/RkeLdirAWf — Anthony LaMesa (@ajlamesa) December 1, 2021 Let’s put aside the argument over being vaccinated vs. unvaccinated and how that should play into restrictions for a moment. I’ve written extensively in the past on the fallacy of that distinction in managing community spread and why mandates of any kind are largely useless. Still, even focusing on these regulations in the context of just those “vaccinated and boosted” individuals, they are pure insanity.
Requiring people to quarantine for seven days even if they test negative is something you’d expect to see out of the Australian government. If someone tests negative, logically, they do not need to stay locked in a room for a week. Further, they would have tested negative prior to the flight as well, which means people would be quarantined after not one, but two negative tests. And for what, exactly?
That’s really the cardinal question here. Is the idea that such measures are going to put even the slightest dent in […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
