The Arizona “Audit” Was Election Subversion
The subversion will continue until morale improves.
At the beginning of the Cyber Ninja’s presentation on the wildly incompetent assessment of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, State Senate President Karen Fann stated that she had never intended to undo the election. Oh no. She insisted that all she had ever tried to do was address voters’ concerns about fraud. It was just a weird coincidence that during the trial, former President Trump and Republican state senator Wendy Rogers proverb things like “Declare the elections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Fann’s protests were, in technical terms, complete bullshit. These partisan, kangaroo court investigations dismissed as “audits” are nothing but blatant attempts at election subversion. Their sole purpose is to delegitimize the 2020 elections.
But those who still feel icky for saying they want to restore Trump as president have an easy fix. They’re just doing what Fann did. They play along and act like it’s all very normal. They only tend to the concerns of The People. They just ask questions.
‘Vigilante Treatments’: Anti-Vaccination Groups Push People To Leave ICUs
As the anti-vaccine movement escalates its rhetoric, doctors warn they are dealing with the fallout: “They’re starting to target people, the messengers — nurses and doctors.”
Anti-vaccine Facebook groups have a new message for their community members: Don’t go to the emergency room and get your loved ones out of intensive care.
Consumed by conspiracy theories that claim doctors are preventing unvaccinated patients from getting miracle drugs or even killing them on purpose, some people in anti-vaccine and pro-ivermectin Facebook groups are telling people with Covid-19 to stay away from hospitals and instead trying increasingly dangerous at-home treatments, according to reports NBC News has seen in recent weeks.
The posts represent an escalation of distrust among medical professionals in groups that have sprung up on social media platforms in recent months, which have attempted to address misinformation about Covid. And it’s something that some doctors say are seeing manifested in their hospitals because they’re full because of the most recent delta variant wave.

Many parents will not vaccinate their children. This is why.
Even parents excited about the vaccines may not want their young children to be first in line.
Parents are often skeptical of new vaccines. When one is introduced, many of them are initially hesitant to adopt it. Take the varicella vaccine, for example. Approved by the FDA in 1995, it protects against the virus that causes chickenpox, an extremely contagious, common and unpleasant infection in children. While the vaccine was highly effective and had few side effects, uptake levels were initially low, with only 34 percent of eligible adolescents fully immunized by 2008. In my experience with my own patients, parents were concerned about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, and were not convinced that chickenpox was a disease serious enough to warrant vaccination. Vaccination rates improved over time. In 2018, about 90 percent of children were vaccinated. But if history repeats itself, people hoping for rapid parental uptake of the COVID-19 vaccines may need to adjust their expectations.
CDC Ignores Advisors on Pfizer Booster for High-Risk Employees
– Recommendations now align with FDA authorization terms, agency says
Gerald Harmon, MD, president of the American Medical Association, applauded the decision in a statement.
“As we are in the midst of a global pandemic that continues to cause widespread illness and death, we must do everything we can to protect our frontline health workers,” he said. “We believe this recommendation is a critical step in preserving our nation’s health care capacity and preventing disease in those who have continued to put their own health and safety at risk to care for patients.”
The collapse among the Democrats shows that our budget debates are insane
If you’ve been following the reconciliation debate — in which people are absolutely obsessed with the supposedly terrifying $3.5 trillion figure — you might think that the defense bill would make a huge fuss about spending and debt spiraling out of control. After all, that $3.5 trillion is more than 10 years, or $350 billion a year, less than half of what we’re going to spend on the military.
But that’s not what happened. Aside from a brief stint on whether the bill would include funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system, the defense bill passed through the process efficiently and with little controversy.
There were no painful negotiations, no ultimatums, no desperate threats. President Biden didn’t have to beg and beg to get anyone’s vote. And you certainly haven’t seen centrist members of Congress express deep concern about its magnitude, claiming it was irresponsible to add so much to the national debt — though we’ll easily spend $8 or $9 trillion on the military over the same 10-year period.
All migrants have been removed from their camp in Del Rio, Texas, Secretary of Homeland Security says
“Less than a week ago, there were about 15,000 migrants in Del Rio, Texas, the vast majority of whom were Haitian citizens,” Mayorkas said. “As of this morning, there are no more migrants in the camp under the Del Rio International Bridge.”
Mayorkas’s crackdown spanned a week in which the Biden administration was seared by party anger, Republican attacks on White House immigration policies and the fight against border control.
