A new-media climate change propaganda video shows the direction of vaccine mandates.

By Justin Katz | September 14, 2021 |

Writing for Accuracy in Media, I note how similarly NowThis (an online video news source with deep Democrat ties) frames its climate-change alarmism to Biden’s vaccine mandate language on the same day: What makes this different from the typical cynical exploitation of disaster by climate alarmists is that NowThis released its video on the very same day…

Image of COVID as planet Earth

Bostom’s COVID numbers are interesting, even if he misrepresents them.

The risks of COVID vaccines do justify objections to vaccine mandates, particularly among those who’ve already had the virus, but vaccines do appear to improve outcomes regardless.

Read the last paragraph first in mainstream stories about anti-vax tragedies.

The story of Ray DeMonia is floating around social media.  The short version is that the Alabama man had a heart attack, but it took so long for his family to find a hospital with a cardiac ICU bed (because they were all occupied by people who hadn’t gotten the COVID vaccine) that he died.…

Add this to the list of progressive policies’ harmful effects: According to The Oregonian, people dialing 911 are often left waiting over two minutes for their call to be answered, far longer than the national standard of 15 to 20 seconds. People calling 911 to report a Sept. 4 shootout at a Pearl District restaurant…

The problem is trusting people who insisted they had authority to take your rights away.

Can you really believe them? According to Daniel Teng of The Epoch Times, the government of New South Wales, Australia, is promising to begin returning “freedoms” to vaccinated people —and only vaccinated people — when they number 70% of the population.  At 80%, “more freedoms would be available.” But what happens when the nation hits 70%…

Joe Biden's smile.

But in making this move, it seems Democrat Governor Dan McKee is only shining more on the arbitrary power he’s claiming to have: They will be placed on leave without pay during that time and barred from working in a state-licensed health-care facility until they get inoculated against COVID-19, according to an email from the…

A scale
