AOC on Caterers: Make Them Wear Masks

 

According to sources familiar with the matter, the 2021 Met Gala’s controversial “hybrid masking policy” represented an attempt by event planners to simultaneously protect invited guests from the coronavirus while reminding The Help that they are there not to speak but to be spoken to.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed enthusiastic support for the masking compromise over an appetizer of foie gras entier: “It was either them or us. On the one hand, there’s the exigencies of the political class, celebrities, and contributors to The Atlantic who have verified Twitter accounts; on the other hand, there are these hopelessly unconnected kulaks on the catering team who don’t even live in Manhattan.” AOC then added, “Let them wear masks.”

The two-term representative then rang a bell while demanding a lobster toast with avocado and Espelette pepper.

Fauci: ‘Nothing Is Over Until I Decide It Is’

 

A sullen Nancy Pelosi is demoralized about the increased public focus on Covid outcomes rather than Covid case rates. Dr. Anthony Fauci enters and attempts to rally her and the political consultants seated around her.

Fauci: Hey!!! What’s this maskless B.S.?

Pelosi: War’s over, man, Pfizer-Moderna dropped the Big One.

From what little I can gather (or guess), the Powers That Be decided to handle Covid with a policy of Lockdowns, Vaccines, Masks, and Nothing Else.  I propose a new word for LOckdowns, VAccines, MAsks, and NOthing Else: lovamanoe, pronounced “lo-va-ma-no.” That the Powers managed to institute lovamanoe without the cooperation of the President of […]

Dogma Masquerading as Science Undermines Public Trust

 

“I believe in science, Donald Trump doesn’t. It’s that simple, folks,” Joe Biden tweeted during the 2020 election campaign.

Even by Biden standards, that was a deceitful remark. Not only did his opponent spearhead the unexpectedly efficient development of the Covid vaccine, which has been the cornerstone of pandemic suppression ever since, but the Biden administration has already done the most damage of any in memory by politicizing “the Science,” thus weakening its credibility.

Real science isn’t some facts approved by experts but a philosophical framework for acquiring and evaluating knowledge that originated in the Enlightenment. Science emphasizes reason, observation, and methodical analysis rather than loyalty to the teachings of authorities.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome New York Democrats planning to expedite the impeachment probe of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and a new poll showing most New Yorkers want him out of office. They also hammer President Biden for bringing back the eviction moratorium while admitting the Supreme Court will probably rule against him. And they’re exasperated as NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins goes on national television and tells parents to mask up at home to protect their kids from COVID.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they react to New York Attorney General Tish James, a Democrat, issuing a scathing report saying that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is guilty of sexually harassing multiple women and his team tried to stop some from coming forward. They also discuss obvious signs that China is clamping down against the Delta variant after saying at length that its people are immune. And they react to a Biden COVID adviser telling CNN that your cloth masks really don’t do much good.

The New New Normal

 

Stay six feet apart. Wear your mask. This, we were told, is the New Normal.

Then “two weeks to slow the curve” turned into much, much more. 14 days became 14 months. It started with the shutdown of “nonessential businesses.” But who decides what is essential? Politicians, of course, but they told us they were using “science.” Liquor stores were essential. Clothing stores were not. If you ever criticized someone for sitting around the house drunk and naked rather than going to work, you need to apologize. They were performing essential services. You could still buy clothes at Walmart, but only because they also sell Pop Tarts, which makes them essential.

On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Federalist Staff Writer Jordan Davidson joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s flip-flop on masks, the Biden administration’s endorsement of the new guidelines, and how fed-up Americans are pushing back.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the great story of an Iranian defector dedicating his silver medal to Israel. They also fume as the CDC and the Biden administration force vaccinated people to wear masks again. And they slam President Biden for nominating someone who doesn’t believe in prosecuting drug dealers and other crimes to be a federal prosecutor.

Join Jim and Greg as they slam radical Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib for wanting to defund Customs & Border Patrol, ICE, and the entire Department of Homeland Security. They also unload on the 40 leftist groups urging President Biden to look the other way on Uighur genocide and Hong Kong repression in order to build cooperation for a climate change agenda. And they have fun with John Kerry getting caught doing what John Kerry does best – thinking the rules don’t apply to him.

Today Jim and guest host Chad Benson celebrate Speaker Pelosi’s further destruction of the infrastructure bill compromise. They also grimace as problems continue to appear in the Democratic mayoral primary race in NYC. Finally, they sigh as LA county health officials recommend masks for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in light of the new Delta strand.

 

It’s all good martinis today! Jim and Greg welcome the Senate parliamentarian making life much tougher for Senate Democrats and the Biden agenda. They also cheer the mysterious sinking of one of Iran’s largest naval ships. And they are glad to see COVID number continue to drop weeks after the CDC ended mask mandates for vaccinated people.

Who doesn’t remember the public reactions some 13 months ago as mask mandates were imposed in response to the then-raging Coronavirus pandemic? It was a reversal of course. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others demanded, even ridiculed people not to wear masks. Then they changed their minds. Preview Open

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the CDC finally telling vaccinated people they can stop with all the restrictions – a decision millions of Americans had already made. They also hammer President Biden for tweeting out people have to get vaccinated or stay masked and react to the “trust the science” crowd suddenly very mad at the scientists. And they discuss the implications of cyberterrorists attacking the Colonial Pipeline and Colonial agreeing to pay the $5 million ransom to restart operations.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching the Dems’ case for killing the filibuster wither away. They also discuss the House GOP fight over Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney and the impact it’s having on the party. And they shake their heads as Brookline, Massachusetts, insists on requiring masks outside despite he CDC easing those restrictions.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome 6.4 percent economic growth in the first quarter of 2021. They also hope President Biden will keep his word that schools should be fully open in the fall. But they have no idea why Biden insists on social distancing and wearing masks around other vaccinated people. Oh, and there may be a bit of NFL Draft talk in there too.

Initial statement of my relevant biases: I instinctively react negatively when authorities tell me what to do. I find masks extremely uncomfortable and highly disruptive to my ability to communicate with other people. I believe widespread use of masks and other physical barriers between people and mandatory physical distancing between people have caused enormous damage […]

And please note that what I’m about to share was also stated in the most recent edition of Del Bigtree’s program The Highwire when two OSHA mask experts spoke to the fact that the kinds of masks people are wearing were never (never!) designed to […]

Fauci: “Nothing stops. Or am I being obtuse?”

 

The nation’s highest paid federal employee issued a stern warning to all Americans on Monday, stating that the long-awaited vaccines against COVID-19 won’t alter the long-term necessity of masks, school closures, lockdowns, and social distancing measures.

Responding to a question from a reporter about the possibility of relaxing restrictions once a majority of Americans have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, Dr. Fauci replied “Nothing stops. Nothing! Or you will do the hardest time there is. No more protections from the Bill of Rights. I’ll pull you out of that one-bunk Hilton and cast you down with the New York nursing home residents. Wearing a mask is too onerous? I’ll make you wear three – and throw in a charcoal filter just for giggles.”
