The White House continues struggling to move beyond the fact President Joe Biden wants to spend trillions of dollars during a period of high economic inflation.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday in an interview with Pod Save America that the focus on the level of Biden’s proposed “Build Back Better” spending was “not helpful.”

“There’s no question that this has become a focus around numbers is not helpful, we can’t entirely control that, we obviously want to talk about the substantive issues.”

Psaki acknowledged it was difficult for White House officials as they continued negotiating with Democrat senators to sign off on a multi-trillion spending deal.

 

“Right now we’re just in kind of the messy phase where people are doing their peacocks a little, peacock feathers, you know what I mean? she said, referring to senators like Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).

She urged the leftist audience not to lose hope about the future of Biden’s proposed agenda, even though she admitted recently at a press conference it would not be $3.5 trillion.

“Don’t feel that bad everyone,” she said, adding that “people should not feel glum out there, we’re going to get this done. It’s still going to be historic.”

Southern Hemisphere is record cold this year

The public can’t be allowed to see that the Southern Hemisphere is record cold this year

By Jack Hellner
———————

I didn’t see the story on the nightly news, or in Democrat talking points that the southern hemisphere just had a six month record cold period. That would be as inconvenient as the over-thirty-year cooling period, where a disastrous ice age was predicted, that proved that there is no correlation between temperatures and CO2, fossil fuels and the number of people on the planet.

The public can’t be allowed to see that.  …

A Ticking Time Bomb

Biden’s Presidency Is a Ticking Time Bomb

AP Photo/Evan Vucci
Joe Biden’s massive $4 trillion spending bills are in mortal danger of collapsing under their own weight as the gap between what the radicals want and what less-radical Democrats will vote for widens.

To make matters worse for ordinary Americans, Biden has come down decisively on the side of the radicals, leaving party moderates to wonder where the sanity went.

The $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, already passed by the Senate, is languishing in political purgatory with radical Democrats in the House threatening to kill it unless their $3.5 trillion social safety net bill is approved first. Resentful moderates feel they’ve been lied to by the president and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who promised an up-or-down vote on the bipartisan bill before the end of September.

Here we are a third of the way through October and the House still isn’t ready to consider infrastructure legislation or the safety net bill. Why is that?

Part of the problem is that radicals will be radicals and despite sweet-talking and compromising from Biden, Bernie Sanders and his radical allies have announced they have “compromised enough” and have declared all-out war to get what they want.

Washington Post:

This upcoming stretch may be Biden’s last chance to revive a presidency that has suffered major blows in recent months. Since being rocked by the Afghan withdrawal and the surging delta variant over the summer, Biden’s approval rating has fallen steadily, hitting a low of 38 percent in the latest Quinnipiac poll. Some of the campaign pledges that inspired Biden’s supporters, from voting rights to immigration reform, have fallen by the wayside. A jobs report Friday suggested the economy has been slowed down by the delta variant.

The dust-up between Sanders and moderate West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is illustrative of Biden’s problems. Bernie Sanders and Joe Manchin might live on the same planet but that’s about the extent of their similarities. Both men inhabit different realities. Both men talk past each other because neither man understands the language being spoken.

On Wednesday, Manchin reiterated his belief that the bill should not exceed $1.5 trillion, saying he did not believe that “we should turn our society into an entitlement society.” That prompted a blistering response just hours later from Sanders, who continues to back the $3.5 trillion bill.

“Is protecting working families and cutting childhood poverty an entitlement?” Sanders asked at a news conference. After reeling off a list of similar rhetorical questions, he added, “Perhaps most importantly, does Senator Manchin not believe what the scientists are telling us, that we face an existential threat regarding climate change?”

As far as Sanders is concerned, Manchin’s worry about creating an “entitlement society” is bogus. Why wouldn’t everyone want all the free goodies that Sanders and his socialists are offering? You’d have to be nuts to turn it down or oppose it.

Sanders adheres to a deterministic worldview that posits the idea that Manchin’s actions are due to his loyalty to his “class” and that the wealthy as a class oppress the poor in order to increase their own wealth.

Sanders sees Manchin as a class enemy. He is not to be bargained with, only defeated and ground into the dust. This has complicated Biden’s task enormously as he looks to close the yawning chasm between the ideological wings of his party.

“If Biden thinks he’s adopted a middle course that should leave people equally happy, he has misjudged the situation,” said Bill Galston, a former domestic policy official in President Bill Clinton’s administration. “The prevailing view of the centrists is the president has tilted decisively in the other direction. There’s not a lot of joy in Mudville.”

Meanwhile, the radicals are trying to drive the point home that they won’t countenance any more cuts to their safety net proposal. “There is nothing superfluous in the agenda. Every dollar is needed to deliver millions of good-paying jobs, affordable child care and health care, and a clean energy future,” Lindsay Owens, executive director of Groundwork Collaborative, told the Post.

The clock is ticking on Biden’s presidency. And unless the president can find a way to reconcile the two wings of his party, it’s not likely to be saved.

‘Progressives Cannot Govern”

Malliotakis: ‘Progressives Cannot Govern,’ ‘Socialist Wing’ Has ‘Too Much Power and Say’

—————

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.,” Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) stated, “progressives cannot govern, and that is what was evident yesterday, when Nancy Pelosi failed to bring the bipartisan infrastructure bill to the floor.”

Malliotakis stated, “I think a lot of Republicans are walking around saying what we in New York know, that progressives cannot govern, and that is what was evident yesterday, when Nancy Pelosi failed to bring the bipartisan infrastructure bill to the floor. I’m of the belief that that bill needs to come to the floor in a separate vote. And the fact that the progressive socialists are threatening to sink everything, including that infrastructure bill that has money for roads and bridges and seaports and coastal infrastructure and sewer and water infrastructure. Because they are holding out for their socialist wish list.”

She added, “[Y]ou can’t cave to the socialist wing of the party. That has been Democrats’ mistake here, giving them too much power and say.”

Politicizing Lifesaving Coronavirus Treatment

Republican Senators Introduce Act to Stop Biden from Politicizing Lifesaving Coronavirus Treatment

SIENA, ITALY - FEBRUARY 22: Scientific coordinator Professor Rino Rappuoli takes out a flask with antibodies into the incubator for COVID project at TLS Foundation on February 22, 2021 in Siena, Italy.

Several Republican U.S. senators, including Sens. Rick Scott (R-FL), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Mike Braun (R-ID), and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) introduced legislation to stop the Biden administration from politicizing lifesaving coronavirus treatment.

Last month, the Biden administration announced its decision to ration monoclonal antibodies, citing concerns over “equitable distribution.”

“HHS will determine the amount of product each state and territory receives on a weekly basis,” a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said at the time. This move directly affects southern states such as Florida, as Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has spent recent weeks announcing the openings of more antibody treatment centers across the Sunshine State.

“To just kind of pull the rug out from anyone a week after the president said they were going to be increasing the distributions by 50 percent, it’s very, very problematic,” DeSantis said last month, vowing to “work like hell” to get people the treatment they so desperately need.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis speaks at a news conference, Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021, at the Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. DeSantis was there to promote the use of monoclonal antibody treatments for those infected with COVID-19 (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee).

As a result of the Biden administration’s action, a group of Republican senators has introduced the Treatment Restoration for Emergency Antibody Therapeutics (TREAT) Act, which would prohibit HHS from “implementing policies that restrict hospitals and other appropriate healthcare providers from ordering and receiving COVID-19 monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatments directly from manufacturers and distributors.”

“The TREAT Act would nullify the Biden Administration’s recent policy requiring hospitals and other facilities to work through states to receive mAb supplies as well as cease the administration’s ability to throttle the state’s supply of this lifesaving treatment,” a press release of the announcement reads.

“The Biden administration is playing politics with the lives of Tennesseans,” Blackburn said, calling it a “prime example of how government-run healthcare interferes with the doctor-patient relationship and blocks access to lifesaving treatments.”

“This is rationing, and it is wrong,” she added.

Rubio described the Biden administration’s policy as “nothing but an attempt to punish Florida,” and Scott emphasized that the move is “making it harder for Floridians to receive this life-saving treatment,” describing it as both “unacceptable and unethical.”

“Rather than forcing states to create a distribution network that will cause unnecessary bureaucratic delays, we should leverage industry’s well-established networks through public-private partnerships that will ensure all patients have timely access to care,” Marshall said. Cramer noted that Biden’s change in distribution policy “does not reflect actual need across the country.”

“Our bill would prohibit the implementation of these policies that would restrict hospitals and other providers from receiving life-saving treatments where the need is greatest, regardless of partisan politics,” he added.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) spoke about Biden’s rationing of treatment during an exclusive On the Hill interview with Breitbart News last week. She believes Biden is withholding treatment for “political reasons.”

“I’ve talked with all my health systems because I have several in the state about what their supply is,” Noem told Breitbart News. “Some of them are doing okay; they feel like they have adequate supply as far as what their requests are, and they haven’t felt a pinch”:

I do have one that is really struggling getting the supply that they want — they believe they’re being rationed. I think somewhere in the federal government, they’re stockpiling it — and they are delivering it out to states based on what their cases are, and based on what they think their scientific data is telling them that South Dakota should have.

“We’re going to continue to pressure to have the kind of medical treatments that we believe our people deserve. So, we’re not at a shortfall right now but we have noticed a difference in how the federal government is responding to us,” she added:

Over 3.5x More Killed with Knives

FBI: Over 3.5x More Killed with Knives than Rifles of Any Kind

FBI data released Monday in the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) show over three and a half times as many people were stabbed to death in 2020 than were killed with all kinds of rifles combined.

The UCR shows that 454 people were shot and killed with rifles in 2020 while 1,732 were stabbed or hacked to death with “knives or cutting instruments.”

Breitbart News reported that the previous UCR release showed over four times as many people were stabbed to death in 2019 than were killed with rifles of all kinds.

The exact figures for 2019 were 375 killed with rifles while 1,525 were stabbed to death with “knives or cutting instruments.”

On September 30, 2019, Breitbart News reported that the FBI’s UCR for 2018 showed a similar finding, with over five times as many people stabbed to death with “knives or cutting instruments” as were killed with rifles of any kind.

The broad categorization of “rifles” includes a broad swath of firearms, from bolt action rifles to lever action, pump action, breech action, and beyond. It also includes semiautomatic rifles that take a detachable magazine, which the left often classifies as “assault weapons.” Yet three and a half times more people were stabbed to death in 2020 than were killed with all of these various rifle types combined.

Biden’s Afghanistan Withdrawal Brought in Criminals

Cotton: Biden’s Afghanistan Withdrawal Brought in Criminals and Measles While Leaving Behind Afghans We Should Have Evacuated

————————

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said that as a result of “Biden’s rushed, disorganized withdrawal. We left behind those who we should have gotten out and we brought with us a lot of people who we have no idea who they are or if they pose any threat to us.” And that this has lead to problems like measles outbreaks and evacuees being charged with sex crimes.

Cotton said, “Well, it’s not apparent what the Biden administration is doing to get them out. And the Biden administration has acknowledged they left behind the vast majority of vetted and approved Afghans who worked with our troops. At the same time, they also evacuated apparently thousands of Afghans about whom we know next to nothing, who maybe had no particular connection to our troops at all. And this has led to all kinds of problems in terms of, look at the measles outbreak that we’ve had at some of these sites where evacuees are being held. Two Afghan evacuees in Wisconsin are now charged with sex crimes, including sex crimes against minors. This is what happens because [of] Joe Biden’s rushed, disorganized withdrawal. We left behind those who we should have gotten out and we brought with us a lot of people who we have no idea who they are or if they pose any threat to us.”

Biden Leaves for Camp David

Joe Biden Leaves for Camp David as Democrats Squabble over $5 Trillion Agenda

————————————————-

President Joe Biden left the White House o n Friday for another weekend away from Washington, DC, as Democrats continue fighting over his planned $5 trillion in spending.

The president spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on the phone in the afternoon before he boarded Marine One for Camp David.

Biden leaves Washington, DC, as Democrats continue battling over his twin spending priorities — the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed by the Senate and his massive $3.5 trillion entitlement bill that would also dramatically raise taxes.

The White House cited “progress” in a readout of the call sent to reporters after Biden left.

“The three agreed to stay in touch about their outreach through the weekend,” the readout concluded.

This is Biden’s tenth trip to Camp David since becoming president, as he now routinely leaves the White House on weekends.

Biden reportedly hates living in the White House, describing it as “the tomb” according to the book Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa:

“He is not comfortable living in the White House,” his chief of staff, Ron Klain, said.

Biden spent last weekend at his beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware.

Honoring sacrifice

Honoring sacrifice

By James Poplar
———————–

My wife and I recently canceled a “bucket list” trip that has been planned for several years due to the ongoing pandemic and heightened terrorism alert in France. Paris was the destination of choice for her, the beaches at Normandy for me.

Ever since watching the movie The Longest Day as a child in 1962 I have had a yearning to someday visit the beaches at Normandy which were the site of the D-Day invasion on 6 June 1944.  Codenamed Operation Neptune, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of France  and laid the foundations of the ultimate Allied victory over the evil of Nazi Germany.

Allied casualties on the first day alone have been documented at least 10,000 with 4,414 confirmed dead. Many of those are interred at the cemeteries surrounding the beachhead. In addition, to physical casualties many of the participants suffered from debilitating mental anguish called “battle fatigue,” known now as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

As child I marveled at the airborne assaults by both parachute and gliders and the heroics displayed by many young men not much older than me who willingly sacrificed their own lives so that  others may live in freedom. As I have become older and as a result of service in uniform, I have seen at first-hand the horror of armed conflict. I have a much deeper appreciation for the sacrifices that were made on the day when the very future of democracy was at stake.

Since the founding of this nation in 1776, we have had a total of 2,852,901 plus men and women casualties to include deaths, those wounded in action, and those who are missing — a major toll to pay for the price of freedom we enjoy today. Along with those who have died in conflicts of the past there are those today who suffer from PTSD and other disorders.  All as a result of our recent “War on Terrorism.”

We recently paid tribute to Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Knauss as his body proceeded in Virginia up Interstate 81 to his final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery. Unfortunately, he and twelve other Sailors and Marines were senselessly murdered at Kabul, Afghanistan. Their loss could have been easily prevented had it not been for the ineptitude and incompetence of the Biden administration.

Along with our freedom we have a debt to those who perished and suffered, and that debt is to ensure that we as citizens in a representative democracy vote on the issues and candidates of our own choosing. Yet many in America may believe their vote does not really count or matter.   Recent false allegations by members of the Democratic Party  of  “voter suppression” and “Jim Crow” are merely a veiled attempt to dissuade some from going to the polls to exercise their constitutional rights

As Thomas Jefferson stated “We do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.” Through their sacrifice, please vote and remember the fallen who paid the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy today. Honor them and ensure that their sacrifice was not made in vain.

10 Times as Many Refugees to U.S. Next Year

Joe Biden Plans Bringing 10 Times as Many Refugees to U.S. Next Year

Hundreds of people gather in front of U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer's Brooklyn apartment to protest the migrant detention facilities on July 02, 2019 in New York City. Across the country tens of thousands of people are gathering for "Close the Camps' protests to voice their anger at the Trump administration's …

President Joe Biden is planning to bring to the United States in Fiscal Year 2022 about 10 times as many refugees as he will have brought this year, the State Department confirmed on Monday.

In May, Biden announced he would raise the refugee resettlement cap to 62,500 refugees for Fiscal Year 2021 — more than four times the cap that former President Trump imposed for the year at about 15,000 refugees.

For Fiscal Year 2022, which begins October 1, Biden will set the cap at 125,000 refugees who can be resettled across the U.S. over the subsequent 12 months, a State Department notice to Congress confirmed. The data projects that the Biden administration will have brought about 12,500 refugees to the U.S. by the end of Fiscal Year 2021.

The cap is merely a numerical limit and not a goal for the State Department to reach.

(Screenshot via State Department)

Specifically, the State Department will allocate the most refugee spots for Africans and foreign nationals from East and South Asia. About 10,000 spots will go to Europeans and foreign nationals in Central Asia, while 15,000 spots will be allocated to Latin Americans and those in the Caribbean.

In addition to increasing refugee resettlement, Biden rescinded an order that allowed states and localities to decide whether they wanted refugee resettlement in their communities. The order, signed by Trump, gave Americans veto power over the program that they, for decades, have been shut out of.

Over the last 20 years, nearly one million refugees have been resettled in the country. This is a number more than double that of residents living in Miami, Florida, and would be the equivalent of annually adding the population of Pensacola, Florida, to the country.

Refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers nearly $9 billion every five years, according to research, and each refugee costs taxpayers about $133,000 over the course of their lifetime. Within five years, an estimated 16 percent of all refugees admitted will need housing assistance paid for by taxpayers.

Biden’s Proposed Tax on Oil

Analysis: Biden’s Proposed Tax on Oil, Natural Gas Will Cost Economy $9.1B, 90,000 Lost Jobs

Win McNamee/Getty Images

President Joe Biden’s proposal to tax the oil and gas industries in the reconciliation bill would be costly to both the economy and in terms of job loss, an analysis by the American Petroleum Institute’s Energy Citizens initiative found.

“If implemented, the new tax could cost American jobs, increase costs for U.S. natural gas and oil, and outsource energy production – often to adversarial nations with less stringent environmental records,” the announcement of the analysis said.

The analysis found that the tax proposal would result in $9.1 billion in direct costs to the economy and could mean the loss of 90,000 American jobs.

GARDEN CITY, TX - FEBRUARY 05: Flared natural gas is burned off at Apache Corporations operations at the Deadwood natural gas plant in the Permian Basin on February 5, 2015 in Garden City, Texas. Apache sends an estimated 50-52 million cubic feet per day of natural gas to this plant. As crude oil prices have fallen nearly 60 percent globally, many American communities that became dependent on oil revenue are preparing for hard times. Texas, which benefited from hydraulic fracturing and the shale drilling revolution, tripled its production of oil in the last five years. The Texan economy saw hundreds of billions of dollars come into the state before the global plunge in prices. Across the state drilling budgets are being slashed and companies are notifying workers of upcoming layoffs. According to federal labor statistics, around 300,000 people work in the Texas oil and gas industry, 50 percent more than four years ago. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

To put those figures in perspective, the analysis said “all the Solar Panel Installer & Wind Turbine Service Technician jobs in America (17,350) amount to just 19 percent of the potential job losses resulting from the natural gas tax.”

“As inflation drove prices higher on most U.S. consumer goods, including gasoline, the Biden administration became so concerned last month that it turned to OPEC and Russia to plead for an increase in oil production,” an email from API said, adding that the president’s request was rejected.

“President Biden and Democratic Congressional leaders are now pushing for regulations that’d make it more costly to operate the industry powering America’s economic recovery,” the press release pushing back on the tax said.

The analysis said Biden’s proposed tax “would likely increase the cost of oil production in America, which could make gasoline more expensive for consumers. About one half of the natural gas and oil industry’s methane emissions were related to oil production according to The International Energy Agency.”

“Given natural gas and oil’s role in powering the majority of energy in the U.S., the fallout from the new natural gas tax could ripple throughout the American economy and the public already being squeezed by inflation,” the release said.

The National Taxpayers Union also weighed in on the proposed tax.

“Among the most troubling provisions in this legislation are slush funds that could artificially manipulate the cost of certain forms of energy relative to others,” the Union said.

The agriculture sector, for example, is the largest source of methane emissions but is excluded from the proposed tax.

“In fact, the sources responsible for 70% of U.S. methane emissions are excluded,” the analysis said.

The API analysis also noted that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is already working on new regulations addressing methane emissions so Biden’s tax plan may also be duplicative.

Muslim Gunmen Open Fire on Christians

Muslim Gunmen Open Fire on Christians in Pakistan, Wounding Six

According to one version of the incident, the assault originated in a dispute between a Christian named Asghar Masih and a Muslim called Dilshad Dogar, although other reports deny that this was the motive.

In the afternoon of September 6, Dogar reportedly approached Asghar’s house along with several armed young Muslims. Not finding Asghar at home the gunmen began firing at the church building and then opened fire on Christians’ houses.

The gunfire wounded five Christian women, one of whom was pregnant, as well as one man, Asif Masih, who was shot in both legs when returning home from work.

 

The Barnabas Fund noted that three of the six victims are in a critical condition.

“When I was telling my kids to get inside, I saw a group of heavily armed men firing indiscriminately at a church located on the street,” Masih told Morningstar News. “They then trained their weapons on the homes of neighboring Christians and fired volleys of bullets at them.”

“I barely managed to drag myself into my house and locked the gate, but they did not stop firing,” Masih said. “I could hear them shouting that they would not spare Christians living in the area and would also burn down our church.”

“One of the injured women is six months pregnant,” he added. “She was hit in the leg by one of the several bullets fired at their gate, but fortunately her family members were able to secure her inside.”

Local police arrived at the scene hours after the incident but eventually arrested ten suspects, including Dilshad Dogar, Butt Gas Wala, and Chand Khencha, who are being charged with attempted murder and rioting with use of deadly weapons.

Pakistan stood at number 5 on the 2021 World Watch List, an index of Christian persecution in countries around the world, compiled by the Christian aid organization Open Doors.

“Christians in Pakistan face extreme persecution in every area of their lives, with converts from Islam facing the highest levels,” Open Doors declared, and “all Christians are considered second-class citizens, inferior to Muslims.”

“Increasingly, Christian girls are at risk of abduction and rape, often forced to marry their attackers and coerced into converting to Islam,” the group said.

Open Doors also noted that “Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy laws are used to target Christians, and Islamic extremist groups vehemently ‘defend’ these laws, including attacking or killing those believed to have contravened them.”

Bombshell Report About Lab Funding

Nolte: CNNLOL Ignores Bombshell Report About Lab Funding in Interview with Anthony Fauci

WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 26: From left: Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO), Dr. Diana Bianchi, director of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, talk after a Senate Appropriations Labor, Health and …
Sarah Silbiger-Pool/Getty Images

CNN, a far-left propaganda outlet that encourages violence against Trump supporters, obtained an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci and — just as everyone would expect from this crooked outlet — didn’t ask about a bombshell report that could very well get him in some perjury trouble with the U.S. Senate.

For those wondering why, during a month of huge news — Afghanistan, hurricanes, etc. — this garbage pile of a news outlet still can’t average even a measly million primetime viewers, this is why. Over at CNNLOL, it’s all propaganda all the time. No information. No news. Just 24/7 lies and propaganda and fake news and conspiracy theories.

On Tuesday, The Intercept released a bombshell report that claims the “U.S. government contributed funding to controversial gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.”

Under oath, and on more than one occasion, Fauci has claimed the U.S. government did no such thing. Well, these 900 pages of unreleased information found through the Freedom of Information Act by the Intercept are further proof Fauci might very well be lying:

The bat coronavirus grant provided the EcoHealth Alliance with a total of $3.1 million, including $599,000 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology used in part to identify and alter bat coronaviruses likely to infect humans. Even before the pandemic, many scientists were concerned about the potential dangers associated with such experiments.

The grant proposal acknowledges some of those dangers: “Fieldwork involves the highest risk of exposure to SARS or other CoVs, while working in caves with high bat density overhead and the potential for fecal dust to be inhaled.”

The Intercept report was released before Fauci’s CNNLOL appearance, which means CNNLOL had a real opportunity to make news. But because CNNLOL is not a news outlet, CNNLOL not only ignored the bombshell report, CNNLOL asked Fauci to attack Republicans, which the fascist serial liar Fauci was more than happy to do:

CNNLOL: The trouble is, as you know, politics still trump the science, right? You listen, for an instance, to the governor of Florida, one of the states, of course, that has banned mask mandates. The way he described vaccinations was really remarkable and, again, defies the science.

FASCIST SERIAL LIAR FAUCI: If he feels that vaccines are not important for people, that they’re just important for some people, that’s completely incorrect. Vaccination, Jim, has been the solution to every major public health issue.

Naturally, this attack on Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was based on half-truths and taking him out of context — the usual-usual — but you already knew that because we’re talking about CNNLOL.

Is it any wonder why tens of millions of Americans are suspicious of the coronavirus vaccine, why they don’t trust those selling the vaccine — like the media and Fauci and a government that told us for 20 years we were winning the war in Afghanistan, like a medical establishment that says Black Lives Matter gatherings are safe but Trump rallies are not.
