That is what is this morning's Boston Globe. There is simply no other way to describe the flat-out lies oozing from their pages. It's the most reprehensible "journali$m" I've ever seen. When John Henry bought it on the cheap from the New York Times, I was hopeful he would improve it; however, he has turned it into a complete piece of criminal $hit.
Here we are in the midst of what is being called a public health policy scandal of unprecedented proportions and of potentially catastrophic consequences that is unfolding right before our eyes and the pre$$ is not only ignoring, but facilitating it.
All over a "viru$" that doesn't even exist. It has always been seasonal cold and flu now called COVID, just another in an endless stream of lies from the pre$$. They apparently can't hear the CDC whistleblowers who claim injections have already killed 50,000 Americans as the deaths pile up.
The vaccines are riskier then advertised and all about politics, according to Penny and the WSJ. They don't protect you from the CVD, and you still have to observe all the masking and distancing despite being vaxxed.
As for whether “will the mainstream media ever start recording…deaths or illnesses” from covid jabs, I think we all know the answer. Imho, the Journal article was it a one-off mainstream aberration not to be repeated -- like so much of their $hit.
There can be no doubt now that covid is a globalist psyop designed to inventory, brand, control & cull humanity. Time to start hanging the criminals from lampposts, starting with the politicians, public health officials, and media that promoted this heinous hoax before moving on to the Rockefeller Foundation, WHO, GAVI, and the entire globali$t ruling cla$$.
They had their chance to right their wrongs, and they have declined to do that, instead doubling down with the lies to advance their criminal genocidal agenda at the behe$t of their ma$ters.
"Nursing homes struggle to reduce a serious COVID risk: many employees resist vaccination; Administrators have courted holdouts with raffles, gift cards, and cash, but more than 40 percent nationwide are still unvaccinated" by Kay Lazar Globe Staff, June 24, 2021
If any nursing home had a reason to ensure everyone was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, it would be the Leavitt Family Jewish Home in Longmeadow. Sixty-three residents died last year from the disease, yet, six months after staffers there became eligible for shots, more than 30 percent have yet to be fully vaccinated.
Now, the Leavitt is pairing up with behavioral psychologists from the University of California, Berkeley to test the effectiveness of making the shots super convenient by reserving one for each unvaccinated employee and then asking them to either get their jab in the home during one of their shifts or decline the shot specifically reserved for them.
The failure of many nursing home staff members to get vaccinated has emerged as one of the most serious gaps in the United States’ defenses against COVID. Fully one-quarter of the nation’s pandemic deaths have occurred in nursing homes; yet, nationwide, more than 40 percent of staff members are still unvaccinated, leaving the homes’ frail, elderly residents vulnerable.
Nursing home administrators across the country have dangled gift cards, cash, T-shirts, and more, but such incentives have largely failed at convincing holdouts. Instead, administrators are finding slow but steady success with intimate, albeit time-consuming, one-on-one sessions, pairing the hesitant with colleagues, medical directors, or other trusted sources who listen to workers and talk them through their fears.
“You need to sit across from them, and ask how their kids are,” said Barry Berman, chief executive of JGS Lifecare, which includes the Leavitt nursing home. “It’s those personal connections that sometimes makes the difference.”
[Are you ready to vomit yet at the browbeating and coercion for their toxic tubes of poison?]
Berman has taken to sharing pictures of his five grandchildren on his iPad and telling staff that his fervent prayer is that the youngsters, 8 years old and younger, may soon be eligible for a shot and gain protection, too.
Some nursing homes have considered requiring employees to get a COVID vaccine, but many operators fear a mandate would simply worsen an already serious worker shortage in nursing homes, so persuasion remains the name of the game, but it’s been an uphill challenge as many nursing home workers are immigrants or from communities of color where mistrust of the government and medicine can run deep. In addition, some harbor fears about vaccine side effects, often fed by social media.
A state health department spokeswoman said nursing home staff vaccination rates have improved by 4 percent statewide over the past month, and the department is helping facilities boost rates with mobile clinics and sending teams to help administer shots.
The American Health Care Association, the national trade association for nursing homes, on Tuesday held an online session for workers across the country to ask medical experts questions about the vaccines. It was clear from many of the queries that employees have been riveted by false rumors swirling around social media, claiming bizarre and scary side effects from the shots, such as infertility or that the vaccines make recipients magnetic.
[So what is one to make of the magnetism and infertility that is occurring out there, as well as the blood-clotting and heart inflammations in young and healthy people?
The criminal pre$$ pooh-poohs the deaths and side effects that are mounting by the day, the damn bastards.
To the gallows with them!]
One expert, Dr. Sarah Berry, a geriatrician at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Boston, nodded knowingly, saying she had gotten similar questions from her 12- and 15-year old children who recently received a Pfizer vaccine.
“The 15-year-old is like, ‘Is this vaccine still going to be in me when I get old and is it going to cause side effects down the road?’” she said. Berry explained that researchers have not seen long-term effects in the people who enrolled in the first vaccine trials and have been followed for more than a year. She assured viewers that vaccines “very seldom cause side effects beyond the first couple of months, and that was sort of reassuring to my son.”
[How could they?
There is no way they can know the long-term effects of this abominable experiment with the mRNA gene-therapy modification, but IT'S TOO LATE NOW if you have gotten the shot.
It is IN YOU and can never be removed.
Is that why the health professionals who are being condescended to as if they are stupid don't want the shots?
Oh, btw, giving the shots to young children who do not need it is child abuse]
Federal regulators, hoping to increase rates of nursing home staff vaccinations and better understand outbreaks, recently required the facilities to start reporting their progress weekly, and began posting the data, but the information is hard to find on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Nursing Home Data website.
“It’s definitely not consumer friendly,” said Toby Edelman, a senior policy attorney with the Center for Medicare Advocacy, “and knowing whether staff and residents are vaccinated would be important for families.”
That is from your transparent government who is all about protecting you as they rob you blind and kill you!!]
At Sherrill House in Boston, vaccination rates are at 84 percent, but chief executive Patrick Stapleton is aiming still higher. One factor working in their favor, he said, is many longtime, older employees who are more open to getting vaccinated. While Stapleton offered $50 gift cards early on in their vaccine campaign, he found personal conversations seemed more productive in convincing later holdouts.
Now, he is considering mandating shots for new employees. Given the severe labor shortage in the industry, it’s a dicey proposition, he concedes.
“It’s not something we take lightly, but it’s something we are talking about,” he said. “There is a lot of employer peril here, but it’s a balance against what is safe for our residents.”
You will want to keep your beloved elderly out the the mo-fos of the nursing home if you live in Ma$$achu$etts.
"Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine. An Associated Press analysis of available government data from May shows that “breakthrough” infections in fully vaccinated people accounted for fewer than 1,200 of more than 853,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations. That’s about 0.1%, and only about 150 of the more than 18,000 COVID-19 deaths in May were in fully vaccinated people. That translates to about 0.8%, or five deaths per day on average. The AP analyzed figures provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC itself has not estimated what percentage of hospitalizations and deaths are in fully vaccinated people, citing limitations in the data. Among them: Only about 45 states report breakthrough infections, and some are more aggressive than others in looking for such cases. So the data probably understates such infections, CDC officials said. Still, the overall trend that emerges from the data echoes what many health care authorities are seeing around the country and what top experts are saying. Earlier this month, Andy Slavitt, a former adviser to the Biden administration on COVID-19, suggested that 98% to 99% of the Americans dying of the coronavirus are unvaccinated, and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said on Tuesday that the vaccine is so effective that "nearly every death, especially among adults, due to COVID-19, is, at this point, entirely preventable.” Deaths in the U.S. have plummeted from a peak of more than 3,400 day on average in mid-January, one month into the vaccination drive. About 63% of all vaccine-eligible Americans — those 12 and older — have received at least one dose, and 53% are fully vaccinated, according to the CDC....."
CDC means Criminal Death Cult at this point as they promote such a fantastic lie it is beyond belief, ignoring the thousands of Americans who have already died from the jab -- as they start quoting numbers and statistics!
It is starting to look like the goddamn numbers they cite are nothing but fictions based on models!
In other words, they are pulling the case numbers out of their asses!
It's ALL LIES, folks!
Your GOVERNMENT and PRE$$ LIE TO YOU CONSTANTLY, EVERY DAY, DAY AFTER DAY, ABOUT EVERYTHING, Americans.
"San Francisco city workers will be required to be vaccinated against the coronavirus when a vaccine receives full federal approval. The policy covering 35,000 municipal workers may be the first by any city or county in the U.S. Employees who refuse to get vaccinated and don’t get an exemption could be fired, according to the policy posted to the city government’s website Wednesday. The three COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the U.S. are being dispensed under emergency authorization by the Food and Drug Administration. They are expected to receive full approval in several months. San Francisco city employees will then have 10 weeks to get their shots....."
The politicians who came up with this in fa$cist Fri$co should be fired -- then hung!
Btw, San Francisco has had some of the strictest pandemic-related restrictions in the country. The city was among the first in the nation to order a lockdown last year and its vaccination rates are some of the highest in the nation -- which means they shouldn't be worried and should have herd immunity, etc, right
This isn't about a viru$ or di$ea$e anymore, this is something far more nefarious and $ini$ter.
So we are told.
Your natural herd immunity was found at the bottom of page B3 and it was covered in unscientific lies:
"New study suggests many were infected last year but never diagnosed with COVID-19" by Martin Finucane Globe Staff, June 24, 2021
[Then we HAVE NATURAL and LIFETIME HERD IMMUNITY as the alleged virus gets weaker!]
A recently released study offers new clues to an unanswered question about the coronavirus pandemic: How many people have gotten the virus but were never officially diagnosed?
National Institutes of Health researchers reported this week that the prevalence of COVID-19 in the United States during spring and summer of last year was much higher than the known number of cases.
[That is after they jacked up all the "cases" with false positives based on inaccurate cycle thresholds for a test that detects neither CVD or infectiousness.
That's why the "case" levels are based on, a complete manipulation of numbers for evil purposes]
The researchers, in a paper published in Science Translational Medicine, estimated “there were approximately 4.8 undiagnosed infections for every identified case of COVID-19, suggesting a potential 16.8 million undiagnosed infections by July 2020.”
“Our data suggest a larger spread of the COVD-19 [sic] pandemic in the United States during the first six months than originally thought,” the study said.
The study did not address how many people might have undiagnosed infections now. The US total of diagnosed infections has grown to around 33.4 million on Thursday.
“A hallmark of the coronavirus pandemic is that there are people infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 who have few or no symptoms,” said Dr. Matthew J. Memoli of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, one of several NIH institutes leading the study.
[That FLIES in the FACE of a PANDEMIC, for a true pandemic has people dropping in the streets, not asymptomatic infections that are not.
The guy above is a FUCKING CRIMINAL LIAR in FAUCI'S OFFICE!]
“While counting the numbers of symptomatic people in the United States is essential to contend with the impact of the pandemic and public health response, gaining a full appreciation of the COVID-19 prevalence requires counting the people who are undiagnosed,” he said this week in an NIH statement.
Researchers came up with their estimates after looking at blood samples from a representative sample of over 8,000 undiagnosed people, searching for antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, the NIH said.
The findings come as the United States is struggling to get as many people as possible vaccinated against the virus, while officials warn of the worrisome new delta variant.
[Now known as the SCARIANT!
CRIMINAL MONSTERS ALL is your government, folks, and have you ever noticed how conveniently the agenda-pushing $tudies come forth when they need them?]
Other studies have also suggested that large numbers of cases have gone undiagnosed. A Columbia University researcher estimated earlier this year, based on computer modeling, that the number of undiagnosed people continued to be multiple times higher than the number of diagnosed people.
[Like i said, it is ALL $HIT!]
Dr. Thomas Tsai, a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said the NIH study “suggests that there may be a higher than expected level of infection-induced immunity currently in the US population,” but he said he wasn’t aware of any definitive estimate of that level.
[I'm sorry, SAY AGAIN!]
It may sound reassuring that, in addition to the 177 million people who have gotten at least one dose of vaccine, there are many millions who may have some natural protection against the coronavirus after contracting it and never getting tested for it, but experts emphasize people should get their shots even if they’ve had COVID-19.
[That is INSANE and CRIMINAL!
The SHOT will actually CAUSE HARM by stimulating the immune system against the spike protein bioweapon when it isn't needed!]
“You should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19,” the CDC says on its website. “That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible—although rare—that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19.”
[They should all be in jail]
Tsai said, “I think getting vaccination is still incredibly important. Especially with the delta variant which has been shown to have increased household transmission and increased severity of illness, vaccination remains important to protecting the health of individuals and their family members.”
[Not only is he a goddamned liar, he's telegraphing the fact they intend to show up at your door and enter your homes.
I hope they are prepared to die as I am]
Now to the bu$ine$$ $ection:
"State’s largest health care providers to require all employees get COVID-19 vaccines; One labor union balked at the mandate" by Priyanka Dayal McCluskey Globe Staff, June 24, 2021
The state’s largest hospital systems on Thursday said they will mandate that all of their employees get vaccinated against COVID-19 as part of a moral imperative to keep patients safe.
[It will do the exact opposite as they vaccinated shed the spike protein and infect others, so AVOILD MEDICAL CARE at ALL COSTS!
DO NOT TRUST the medical e$tablishment in Ma$$achu$etts!]
Leaders of Mass General Brigham, Beth Israel Lahey Health, Wellforce, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute said requiring vaccination for employees is critical for protecting vulnerable patients, especially those who are immunocompromised.
Together, these hospital systems employ more than 135,000 people. All employees, including those who don’t work directly with patients, must get vaccinated, though they can request exemptions for medical or religious reasons.
[And if denied?]
Dr. Anne Klibanski, chief executive of Mass General Brigham, said there is now overwhelming evidence that COVID vaccines are safe and effective.
“Getting vaccinated right now is the single most important thing that we can do to let our employees know that we are providing the safest environment for patients, their families, and for each other,” she told the Globe.
[My jaw hit the floor when I saw what that criminal said about safe and effective vaccines when they are nothing of the sort!
They admittedly don't prevent CVD or transmission, so WTF?!]
Hospital leaders did not set a deadline for employees to be vaccinated. They said they would wait until the US Food & Drug Administration grants full approval of the vaccines, which could take weeks or months. (The FDA has authorized the vaccines for emergency use.)
[The FDA is nothing but a rubber stamp for the pharma¢euti¢als, and this article proves it]
Hospital workers have been eligible for the COVID vaccines for months, and most have received their shots. After watching COVID patients suffer and die, many caregivers rushed at the chance to be vaccinated and became emotional as the needle went into their arms.
[What a load of shit from the Globe scribe]
Mass General Brigham and Beth Israel Lahey, the two biggest health care providers in Massachusetts, both said that about 85 percent of their workers have been vaccinated, but the health care workforce is large and diverse, and not everyone has been enthusiastic about the vaccines.
[If so many have been vaccinated, then there is no need for the rest to get the kill shots.
We were told 70% was good enough, but not now!]
One labor union representing health care workers immediately objected to the new requirements — though hospitals appear to have the legal right to implement them.
“Vaccination is an important tool to help us move forward, but an employer mandate is not the answer for a healthcare workforce still struggling to recover,” said Tim Foley, executive vice president of 1199SEIU, which represents nurses as well as technical and clerical workers.
“A hard-handed approach will create greater frustration,” Foley said in a statement.
[Along with rebellion, and finally, a union with some balls]
David Schildmeier, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Nurses Association, said the union will review each hospital’s specific policy before taking a position.
“We have encouraged our members to get the vaccine, and we believe the vast majority have already done so,” he said.
[Looks like they have broken you]
Many hospitals already require their workers to get annual flu shots. The nurses union opposes flu vaccination mandates and in the past has sued — unsuccessfully — to try to block such requirements.
Dr. Kevin Tabb, chief executive of Beth Israel Lahey, said his health system has a responsibility to protect patients and employees, and that it must lead by example.
“We’re an institution that is based on science,” he said in an interview. “We know the vaccine is extraordinarily effective, and we know that it’s safe. … We stand on much stronger moral ground asking others to get vaccinated when we ourselves have been vaccinated.”
At Wellforce, the hospital system that includes Tufts Medical Center, executives sent an e-mail to employees saying: “COVID-19 is still with us. The Delta variant is becoming more prominent in the United States, and it is vitally important that we continue to do everything we can to protect our patients and ourselves.”
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute told its employees: “Because our patients are especially vulnerable, we will strictly enforce compliance.” Cancer patients are at greater risk because they may have weakened immune systems from their treatments.
UMass Memorial Health Care eventually plans to mandate the vaccine for its workers, said Dr. Eric Dickson, the chief executive. Seventy-six percent of employees are vaccinated now, which Dickson called “disappointing.”
“I fully anticipate that we will mandate [vaccination] and that other health care systems in the state will,” he said.
“I think we will probably have some people leave their jobs because they don’t want to get vaccinated,” he said, “and that will make it even harder to staff places that are already struggling to get staffing.”
[As the Terminator once said, F**k you, a$$hole!]
Boston Medical Center and Steward Health Care said they’re still evaluating whether to make vaccinations mandatory.
In requiring the COVID vaccine, Massachusetts hospitals are following the lead of those in other states, including Texas, Maryland, and New York.
Houston Methodist Hospital has drawn national attention for its vaccination requirement and a lawsuit from some of its employees that challenged the mandate. Earlier this month, a federal court sided with the hospital. A Houston Methodist spokeswoman said 153 employees resigned or were fired over the requirement.
The fact that Massachusetts hospitals are waiting for full FDA approval before they require vaccination puts them on firmer legal ground, experts told the Globe.
“Once the full approval is in place, I do not see the likelihood of an effective challenge against this,” said Robert Kilroy, a partner at the law firm Mirick O’Connell.
[Yeah, don't look to the corrupt corporate courts for salvation!
You will find none there]
Michael Ulrich, assistant professor of health law and ethics at Boston University, said courts generally have upheld vaccine mandates, “and with health care workers,” he said, “you have an even stronger justification for the employers to require it, because you have vulnerable people that are more at risk.”
Governor Charlie Baker, asked about the vaccination mandates Thursday, said, “As far as I’m concerned, that’s their call.”
“At this point in time, I would prefer to let organizations make the decisions they think are going to keep their people safest,” Baker said at an appearance in Quincy, “but different people are in different places with respect to this, and I think we should respect that as well.”
"Biden says he has infrastructure deal with bipartisan group of senators" by Emily Cochrane, Jim Tankersley, and Jonathan Weisman The New York Times, June 25, 2021
WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden and a bipartisan group of centrist senators reached a deal on Thursday for $1.2 trillion in investments to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure, a victory for the White House but only the first lurch in what promises to be an arduous attempt to reshape the nation’s economic and social programs.
The agreement on traditional infrastructure projects — roads, bridges, tunnels, rail and broadband — would be significant on its own, the first major increase of federal public works spending since President Barack Obama’s 2009 economic rescue plan. It would include some existing infrastructure programs, but also provide $579 billion in new money over eight years to patch cracking highways, rebuild crumbling bridges, speed rail traffic and more equitably spread high-speed internet access.
[Why is the infrastructure in such $hit shape?
Were did all the money go all these years?
Down a manhole and into the $wampi$h $ewer?]
The plan would also pour billions of dollars into waterways and coastlines washing away as a warming planet raises sea levels, and $7.5 billion into financing a half-million electric vehicle charging stations, all part of Biden’s climate pledges. It would be paid for in part with a $40 billion increase in the IRS enforcement budget to bring in $140 billion in unpaid taxes, as well as repurposing unspent coronavirus relief funds, according to an outline provided by the White House.
“This agreement signals to the world that we can function, deliver and do significant things,” Biden said from the White House’s East Room, after meeting with the lawmakers, but almost immediately after reaching the breakthrough, Biden and Democrats offered a giant caveat that could complicate its chances of passage.
[What dirty tricks and double-dealing underhandedness do the Communi$t Democraps have in store?]
Both the president and top Democrats said the compromise, which constitutes only a small fraction of the expansive, $4 trillion economic agenda Biden has proposed, could advance only together with a far larger bill that would pour trillions more into health care, child care, higher education access and climate change programs. That measure, vehemently opposed by Republicans, would be paid for by remaking the tax code to capture the wealth of the superrich and multinational corporations that shift profits and jobs overseas.
The damn Dems will go after their donors, yeah, $ure.
This deal is $hit, and the 4tinking Republicans went along with bankrupting this country, the traitors]
“If this is the only thing that comes to me, I’m not signing it,” Biden said of the infrastructure piece. “It’s in tandem.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the changes in their totality “transformative, if not revolutionary.” Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the majority leader, predicted that the pair of bills would be “the boldest, strongest legislation that this country has seen in decades.”
[God help us all]
They said they hoped all of it could come together by this fall, an enormous challenge that will involve persuading at least 60 senators to back the traditional infrastructure plan, and keeping Democrats united on the larger bill. The latter measure would have to pass through a budget process called reconciliation, which would allow it to bypass a Republican filibuster, but would require all 50 Democratic and independent votes in the Senate.
“There ain’t going to be no bipartisan bill unless we’re going to have reconciliation,” Pelosi said, a message she repeated privately to Democrats, after liberals warned against acting just on a bipartisan deal that jettisons the provisions progressives want most.
Still, the deal struck Thursday fulfills the promise of bipartisanship that Biden has long sought, and its authors were in a celebratory mood.....
[In other words, this front-page piece of $hit is nothing but CRAP IMAGERY and DISTORTED GARBAGE, and yet the fact that the Globe emphasizes that the article originally appeared in The New York Times means the Times is proud of their turd]
"The Senate Judiciary Committee deadlocked in an 11-11 vote Thursday on President Biden’s nominee to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, setting up a procedural hurdle for Democrats to overcome before he is confirmed. The split vote on Chipman means Senate majority leader Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, will need to hold a full Senate vote to discharge the nomination from committee. The panel also voted 11-10, along party lines, to confirm Ur Mendoza Jaddou, Biden’s nominee to lead the Homeland Security Department’s Citizenship and Immigration Services, with one Republican senator abstaining....."
The abstention is a vote for in that case.
Thanks for holding the line, whoever they were.
She is also his longtime political strategist, and that should make good kindling for the fireplace.
"US to move Afghans who aided troops to third countries" by Helene Cooper and Eric Schmitt New York Times, June 24, 2021
WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is preparing to relocate thousands of Afghan interpreters, drivers, and others who worked with US forces to other countries in an effort to keep them safe while they apply for entry to the United States, senior administration officials said.
With the US military in the final phases of withdrawing from Afghanistan after 20 years of war, the White House has come under heavy pressure from lawmakers and military officials to protect Afghan allies from revenge attacks by the Taliban, and speed up the lengthy and complex process of providing them special immigrant visas.
[They come with every war based one lies, and it's not something they tell you when it is being sold with front-page lies being bullhorn by the pre$$]
Roughly 650 US troops are expected to remain in Afghanistan to provide security for diplomats after the main American military force completes its withdrawal, which is set to be largely done in the next two weeks, US officials told the Associated Press on Thursday.
[We are withdrawing but we're not.
Can you see why I am totally sick of this $hit?]
In addition, several hundred additional American forces will remain at the Kabul airport, potentially until September, to assist Turkish troops providing security, as a temporary move until a more formal Turkey-led security operation is in place, the officials said. Overall, officials said the United States expects to have American and coalition military command, its leadership, and most troops out by July 4, or shortly after that, meeting an aspirational deadline that commanders developed months ago. The officials were not authorized to discuss details of the withdrawal and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
On Wednesday, administration officials started notifying lawmakers that they will soon begin what could be a wholesale move of tens of thousands of Afghans. Officials said the Afghans would be moved out of Afghanistan to third countries to await the processing of their visa requests to move to the United States.
[How much is all this going to cost the American people?]
The officials declined to say where the Afghans would wait, and it is not clear whether third countries have agreed to take them. A senior administration official said that under the plan, family members of applicants would also be moved out of Afghanistan to a third country to await visa processing. Transportation out of Afghanistan will not come with any assurance that a US visa will be granted. It was unclear whether people who somehow do not qualify would be sent back to Afghanistan or left in a third country. The officials spoke on grounds of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about the decision.
The decision comes as President Biden prepares to meet Friday with President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan amid a worsening security situation in the country.
[Why are we leaving then?]
Aides said Biden would press Ghani on the need for unity among the country’s leaders, urging them to stop fighting among themselves when the country is in crisis and government forces are at risk of losing control of the nation to the Taliban.
[As the illegitimate a$$hole and demented pettofile tears ours apart!]
They said he would assure Ghani of continued financial support from the United States to the Afghan government and people, including a $266 million humanitarian assistance package and $3.3 billion in security assistance, as well as significant aid to help combat the coronavirus pandemic with vaccines, testing kits and personal protective equipment.
Officials said the administration has been working to streamline the visa process for Afghans who worked with US forces and has added people to handle the applications.
Pressure on the administration to act swiftly on the Afghans’ behalf has grown steadily in recent weeks in both the House and the Senate. Lawmakers pressed Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at a Pentagon budget hearing Wednesday.....
[Those two guys should be court-martialed and exectuted.
You understand the rage, right, Milley?]
"Most Congressional Republicans have shrugged off the need for any more investigation into the attack, pointing to the FBI’s ongoing work to prosecute rioters, impeachment proceedings against Trump over his role in the insurrection, and a series of congressional hearings that have already taken place. “This... isn’t about gathering facts, it is about gathering political points,” said Representative James Comer of Kentucky during testimony this month from generals and intelligence officials, but supporters of a deeper probe point to a lack of clear information over what was responsible for the slow response from law enforcement that day, what the level of organization was among rioters and protesters, and who, if anyone, was behind funding it. “As an intelligence professional, I look at this as, who organized this? That is the fundamental question,” said Cedric Leighton, a military analyst and former US Air Force intelligence officer. “It is a follow the money question — who was paying for things?”
I'm sure that cover-up committee will turn out a heap of sh!t in what is now clearly another in a long line of agenda-pushing false flags by this government -- with Michigan looking like a rehearsal.\
"Russia is prepared to target intruding warships if they fail to heed warnings, a senior Russian diplomat declared Thursday after a Black Sea incident in which a British destroyer sailed near Crimea in an area that Russia claims as its territorial waters....."

The West will lose this one, and we can say good riddance to our governments as we eat them]
My print copy was New York Times, and that crime against humanity by the Catholic Church and the Canadian government is not only an atrocious abomination, it is cause for execution of the Pope and Trudeau.

Warm weather, fewer lifeguards, canceled swim lessons could be behind the recent string of drownings
I'm starting to suspect child sacrifices being covered up, but whatever.
While digging through the rubble I found that the area has a mix of new and old apartments, houses, condominiums and hotels, with restaurants and stores serving an international combination of residents and tourists. The main oceanside drag is lined with glass-sided, luxury condominium buildings, but more modest houses are on the inland side. Among the neighborhood’s residents are snowbirds, Russian immigrants and Orthodox Jewish families -- thus accounting for the ma$$ media attention.
Btw, the Kushner's are a block away and Zino$t Joe has now called it a national emergency.
The New York Times are citing Trump election lies as the reason; however, he is never asked why he destroyed a crime scene in September 2001.
The Globe is fine with it on a national level, though.
