Biden Ain't Giving Up


Even though the Biden administration announced Wednesday that it is temporarily suspending the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private employers of 100 people or more, documents from the administration show that OSHA is considering expanding the mandate to small businesses, requiring fully-vaccinated people to wear masks in the workplace, and mandate that people who have natural immunity after recovering from COVID-19 receive the vaccination anyway.

Later, the document makes clear that OSHA regulators are considering requiring face masks for fully-vaccinated people — and vaccinations for people with natural immunity.

“How should the scope of the rule change to address the significant risk posed by COVID-19 in the workplace? Should portions of the rule, such as face coverings, apply to fully vaccinated persons?” the document asks would-be commenters.

Furthermore, while OSHA admits that the extent to which “workers who have been infected with COVID-19 but have not been fully vaccinated still face a grave danger from workplace exposure to SARS-CoV-2” is “an area of ongoing scientific inquiry,” OSHA cites this uncertainty to demand the vaccination of those who have recovered and may still have high levels of antibodies. “Given scientific uncertainty and limitations in testing for infection and immunity, OSHA is concerned that it would be infeasible for employers to operationalize a standard that would permit or require an exception from vaccination or testing and face covering based on prior infection with COVID-19,” it says (emphasis added).

Despite OSHA Halting Implementation, Psaki Says ‘Nothing Has Changed’ on Vaccine Mandate


“Let me be very clear, our message to businesses right now is to move forward with measures that will make their workplace safer and protect their work forces from COVID-19. That was our message after the first stay from the Sixth Circuit and nothing has changed,” Psaki said, urging private companies to move forward with mandates regardless of constitutional violations. “We are still heading toward the same timeline. The Department of Justice is vigorously defending the emergency temporary standard in court and we are confident in OSHA's authority."

Biden Administration Targets Texas School District. Texas GOP Rep Strikes Back.


“I am not going to sit back while this authoritarian administration conducts overreaching investigations in the shadows.”





Van Duyne joined Texas GOP senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, North Carolina GOP Senator Richard Burr and North Carolina GOP Represenative Virginia Foxx to fire off a blistering letter to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona in which they stated:

Based on recent actions by the Biden administration, we fear your department will weaponize federal resources to intimidate parents who disagree with the polices of this administration and voiced their objections overwhelmingly and lawfully though local elections held in May of this year. Furthermore, given Carroll’s ISD achievements in education, we are concerned the Department will conduct an authoritarian-style retaliation against the community.

Psaki: Businesses Should ‘Move Forward’ With COVID-19 ‘Measures’ Despite Two Court Stays



“Let me be very clear: Our message to businesses right now is to move forward with measures that will make their workplaces safer and protect them and their workforces from COVID-19,” Psaki told reporters. “That was our message after the first stay issued by the Fifth Circuit, that remains our message, and nothing has changed.”

Psaki cited data that said 60% of businesses are still taking steps to enforce the mandate.

“They are essentially implementing components or versions of these vaccine requirements because they know it’s in the interest of their workforces, to protect their workforces, to make sure they can bring more people back to the workforce. We certainly see that as a positive sign,” she concluded, adding that the White House is still operating on the same enforcement timeline, and that the administration is “confident in OSHA’s authority” to impose the mandate.

“required face mask”


“The president was seen inside Murray’s Toggery Shop on the island of Nantucket Saturday with his mask around his neck and not covering his mouth despite a visible sign outside the door instructing patrons to wear a mask,” Fox News reported. “Nantucket, where Biden is spending his Thanksgiving holiday, re-instituted an indoor mask mandate earlier this month.”

I am sure Mr. Biden did not do this purposefully. It is just that his Dementia has progressed to the point that he doesn't remember to wear the mask.

Added IRS Funding Spells Bad News for Minority Communities


Before ProPublica resorted to publishing illegally leaked tax information on private citizens, they compiled troves of data on where the IRS conducts audits and which United States counties are targeted most frequently. This deep dive revealed that the most audited county in the United States is not one near financial meccas like New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago. No, rather, the most IRS audits per capita are directed at Humphreys County, Mississippi, a rural county near the delta, know for catfish farming.

Humphreys is not some bastion of secret wealth hidden in the Deep South. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, well over one-third of Humphreys’ residents live below the poverty line. The average income of this humble county is roughly $18,000 per year. The economic issues in Humphreys County are fueling a dramatic decline in population over the last decade. There is hardly enough money to go around in counties like this, yet the IRS seems to believe there is too much and these poor catfish farmers are secretly hoarding wealth.

Also of note, over 75 percent of Humphreys County residents are African-American. This makes Humphreys one of 151 counties in America where African-Americans, Hispanics, or Native Americans/Alaska Natives comprise the demographic majority. This is where the trends in the IRS data take an even darker turn. Of these 151 counties – spread out from Miami-Dade County in Florida to Nome Census Area in northwest Alaska – 144 of them are targeted for audits at rates well higher than the national average. This is not a coincidence.

Biden Is Bullying Businesses Over His Own Policy Failures


But Biden’s presidency depends on finding scapegoats to blame for the nation’s economic woes. So he has directed the Federal Trade Commission to “investigate” why prices at the gas pump are so high and also why the supply chain is such a mess?

It’s desperation time for the White House, and using the FTC to find something that the president can use to blame others for his problems is about all Joe Biden has left.

Now, Biden has ordered the FTC to investigate the “profit margins” of major retailers. He wants people to believe that retailers are taking advantage of inflation to raise prices unnecessarily. “Excess profits” for the oil companies are also under FTC review.

Are we detecting a pattern here? The easiest charge to level is that companies are “greedy” and overcharging for their products. No real proof is needed. Consumers have been programmed by left-wing media to believe it since birth.

Vaccine Segregation And Quarantine Camps Are Flashing Warnings To Stop Covid Insanity Before It’s Too Late

Liberty-loving Americans were astounded when President Biden announced a mandate for all federal employees and contractors to be fully vaccinated. His attempt to run roughshod over the Constitution has been impeded by lawsuits escalated to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is stacked with a majority of GOP appointees.

While patriots battle these draconian measures through domestic judicial channels, a watchful eye must be kept on the forced vaccination laws subsuming Europe in medical tyranny. Europe is the wolf at the door of America’s freedom of choice for vaccines, with Democrats likely to point to the false efficacy of forced vaccination as an excuse to ignore the Constitution.

Don’t Forget Genocides
Not to invoke Godwin’s law, but you would have thought Austria and Germany would be wary of demonizing, segregating, and forcibly medicating sections of their population after the Nazi and Soviet horrors perpetrated in their countries. Shockingly, it appears they aren’t.

The Parasite Stress Hypothesis finds the presence of infectious disease in nations with low sanitation is a prerequisite to authoritarianism. States enforce conformist social policies to reduce transmission, or “stop the spread.” Minority groups are scapegoated as harbingers of pestilence, with propaganda depicting them as rats, fleas, or parasites. Under communism, the Ukrainian Holodomor killed millions of people with the justification that they were “pariahs, untouchables, vermin.”

In other words, there is historical precedent to the claim that demonizing your fellow man as a socially irresponsible bioweapon can precede genocide. We’re watching other frightening prerequisites move into place as well.

Australia is setting up COVID quarantine camps, relocating people from their homes in towns with regional outbreaks. Guards are stationed to capture and return “people who escape.” No matter the “free wifi, nice food, and aircon” provided for detainees, internment at the camp is still involuntary for international arrivals on repatriation flights. A comfortable prison is still a prison.

Allow me to be clear: Australia is not at this moment conducting a genocide against the unvaccinated. But forcibly isolating people based on their perceived uncleanliness was indeed a precursor to the genocides of the 20th century. We should be sounding alarm bells that the wisdom of history has been forgotten and that we are again stampeding human rights in an overreaction to fear.

DHS’ Mayorkas Says He’s Working with Social Media Giants to Circumvent Freedom of Speech


Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed Tuesday that he is working with the social media giants to combat “misinformation,” which all too often recently has come to mean “dissent from the establishment political and media line.” What about the First Amendment? They’re working on ways to get around it.

Brad Stone, senior executive editor for Bloomberg News, asked Mayorkas if he considered “misinformation” a “part of your mandate at DHS, and how much resources are you devoting to fighting misinformation such as election falsehoods or Covid disinformation?”

Mayorkas responded: “I think that’s very much within, uh, our domain, uh, misinformation, uh, pointedly, disinformation have very serious and significant ramifications for homeland security. The integrity of our election system, the security of our election system is a prime example of that. And so, um, our office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans under Rob Silver’s leadership, CISA [Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency] under Jen Easterly’s leadership, uh, John Cohen leading, uh, the office of intelligence and analysis, uh, in an acting capacity, Samantha Winograd, a senior counselor to the Secretary and our Acting Assistant Secretary for Counterterrorism, these are individuals very much involved in their respective workforces, very much involved in addressing misinformation, disinformation, and the threats that they pose to the homeland.”

Instead of pressing Mayorkas about how these officials distinguished what was actual misinformation or disinformation from what was claimed to be by hyper-partisans, Stone lobbed Mayorkas a softball: “I, I know you’ve been doin’ this a long time. Personally, do you ever get, um, you know, or — do you ever get upset by just the ubiquity of falsehoods and mysol — and myth —- in our public dialogue these days, and, and the ease with which they’re transported across social media and the Internet?

David Frum Continues to Show His Disdain for the Unvaxxed


Grumpy old man Frum isn’t letting up. On Wednesday he appeared on CNN to continue to demonstrate his disdain for people who don’t line up for the jab (and presumably its endless boosters).

The Post Millennial reports:

Frum began by suggesting that the anti-vaxx movement “is being incited and preserved by politicians and media personalities who for agendas of their own want to slow the recovery from the pandemic,” adding that it’s akin to generals sending their troops out on “suicide missions.”
CNN’s Brianna Keilar pressed Frum on the morality of his tweet’s suggestion that the unvaccinated receive treatment last. He responded by saying he wasn’t trying to write an official policy for emergency rooms, rather he was “trying to give a voice” to express the frustration of those who “have been doing the right thing.”
“You’re not in the right here,” Frum said of anti-vaxxers. “Quit feeling so sorry for yourself,” and “comparing yourself to victims of the Holocaust.”

Democrats want to weaponize OSHA against small businesses


In attempting to enact these outrageous OSHA and wage-and-hour penalties, Democrats are showing their cards. They obviously care more about expanding the federal bureaucracy than about protecting American businesses or the workers they employ.

Democrats assume all job-creators are criminals. They are counting on job creators to break existing labor laws and to use the fines they collect to pay for portions of their spending bill. They are expecting these fines will total $2.76 billion over a ten-year period.

Rooting for business owners to fail—and building our budgets on the fines assessed against them— is not the American way. On top of that, these monetary penalties will only pay for a fraction of the Democrat’s $4.8 trillion boondoggle, while certainly harming struggling business owners.

These punitive measures penalize work and innovation while the rest of the Democrats’ spending bill rewards the green lobby, union bosses, and other left-wing special interests. Nothing demonstrates how out of touch Democrats are with the American people more than their proposal in H.R. 5376 to spend $3 billion on "tree equity" while they simultaneously go after small business owners struggling to put gas in their cars and food on their tables.
