Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the egregiously overdue end of the travel ban to the U.S. for vaccinated people from the UK and the European Union. They also shudder after finding out Loudoun County, Virginia, schools have failed to reported abuse incidents for years and that Democrats in the Virginia legislature made it easier to cover up these problems just last year. And they react to the news that Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg has been on leave for the past two months while the supply chain crisis grew worse.

In May, the Atlanta Hawks announced that “point guard Brandon Goodwin’s season ended early last year due to a minor respiratory condition,” according to a report in MSN. In the video below, however, Goodwin claims that, in reality, complications from the COVID-19 vaccine forced him to end his season early. After taking the vaccine, he said, […]

Illegal Mandates and NBA Stars

 

One thing that I can’t get out of my mind is that vaccine and mask mandates across the country are profoundly illegal. The Supreme Court decision used to justify them is the Jacobsen v. Massachusetts decision regarding a Smallpox vaccine mandate by that State during a Smallpox outbreak at the end of the 19th Century. One of the features of the decision was that the action mandated by the State had to be well-founded, and achieve the effect for which the mandate was issued. That certainly applied to the smallpox vaccine in Massachusetts at the end of the 19th century. At that time, the vaccine had been used for over a hundred years and was, indeed, established science. A person once vaccinated had almost no chance of dying from the disease, acquiring it, or transmitting it. That has proven not to be the case at all with our current vaccines, and certainly not with masks.

Of course, the decision applied to States, and not the Federal Government, which does not have the public health power to issue the vaccine mandate that Biden imposed. Biden averred that his mandate was likely not constitutional, and it is likely to be challenged in court. But, it can’t be until the rules are issued by OSHA, which is taking its time doing so. Everyone is aware that as soon as those regulations are promulgated, there will be attempts to obtain injunctions, and the mandate will be challenged, and will likely move quickly to the Supreme Court.

Victor Davis Hanson: We’ve Never Had a Presidency Like This; Predicts a Reckoning in 2022

 

A recent stay at my sister’s home presented a microcosm of American life under the Biden regime — the new normal.

My niece told me that some of her unvaccinated friends had dined outdoors at a Manhattan restaurant. One young man entered the restaurant to use the restroom only to find an employee stationed outside the door asking patrons to show proof of vaccination before they could use the facilities.

I guess I won’t be asking the stewardess for any free peanuts on my next Southwest Airlines flight: The carrier’s 10,000 pilots “are the most conservative collection of white collar employees in the country,” explained the pilot, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal. He estimated that at least 60 to 70 percent […]

The Wall Street Journal Sets Axios Straight on What Delayed the Development of Molnupiravir

 

Pharmaceutical manufacturer Merck announced today the company is seeking FDA emergency-use authorization for its experimental antiviral treatment for COVID-19, molnupiravir.

On Oct. 1, Merck released a statement that said, “At the interim analysis, molnupiravir reduced the risk of hospitalization or death by approximately 50%; 7.3% of patients who received molnupiravir were either hospitalized or died through Day 29 following randomization, compared with 14.1% of placebo-treated patients.”

Here are some sections of a post I wrote over at RushBabe49.com, specifically about some of the actions taken by government and medical employees fighting back against the Dictator in Olympia’s Vaccine Mandate for all government employees. Just today, on a local web site, is a story about the Washington State Ferry system, which has […]

Join Greg and Rob Long as they try to figure out exactly what’s causing hundreds of Southwest Airlines flights to be cancelled for the third day in a row. The airline is clearly lying but is this resistance to the vaccine mandate or something else? And if it is about the mandates, what happens next? They also shudder as the Biden administration joins most other countries in supporting a global minimum tax for corporations. And they cry foul as some Virginia Democrats look to loosen absentee voter requirements now that the Virginia governor’s race might not be going their way. They also touch on Columbus Day and the latest insane law in California.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Sen. Manchin’s furious response to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s partisan response to extending the debt ceiling. They also wince as the job numbers for September come in way below expectations and the unemployment rate drops for the wrong reason. And they fire back as Dr. Leanna Wen suggests the U.S. adopt vaccine mandates for planes and trains and forcing people to get the shot if they want to see their family members. Plus, they assess Pres. Biden’s shaky vaccination math.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they are glad to see a poll definitively showing Americans are paying close attention to some of our nation’s biggest problems and concluding the Biden administration is handling them poorly.  They also fume as more evidence piles up, this time from Japan, that President Biden has no desire to assign responsibility for the outbreak of COVID-19 and made sure our intelligence review remained inconclusive.  And they discuss John Kerry saying that President Biden had no idea the French were furious about the recent nuclear submarine deal with the UK and Australia and White Press Secretary Jen Psaki claim Kerry didn’t mean that.
