Before opening that which will not be named, I would ask the reader to set side an hours worth of time and watch this more than thought-provoking video regarding our past and ancestors, but also what the psychopaths of today are trying to achieve.
I would be remiss to not give credit where credit is due, and profusely thank her for digging it up. I really don't want to say anything more about it because you need to make your own judgements about what is presented there amidst the suspiciousness of the recent UFO psyop in the pre$$.
"While this phase in COVID-19 vaccine distribution feels like the final push toward the ever elusive herd immunity goal, it’s actually only the beginning. It is likely that Americans will need booster shots in the fall, and with the rest of the world still lagging in vaccinations, the pandemic is nowhere near its end. That’s ultimately why the state should take the most holistic approach to finishing this cycle of COVID-19 vaccines by not only handing out prizes, but also ensuring that the vaccine is, in fact, cost-free to everyone and easy to access in all corners of the state. In the end, it’s not just a matter of making residents want to get the vaccine now; it’s about getting residents ready and enthusiastic to line up again for the next round of vaccines....."
Straight from the horse's you know what, and totally evil. The "ever elusive herd immunity!"
The Globe is entirely on board with the genocidal agenda as they promote that unhealthful sugary $hit and hide the fact it is the spike proteins that are killing people and no talk of therapeutics they are using across the world, either. It's enough to make your heart burst!
It's reached the point of criminality as the pre$$ continues to push the jabs and further agenda with all the $elf-$erving gu$to it can, and I am somehow supposed to feel sorry for the propagandists shoveling their BS because they are so noble, so valiant, so $elf-$erving.
Sorry, but the mask is off regardless of where we go from here. I know it seems like a losing battle, but it is my body, my choice, right?
With that, I turn back to the front page and today's top story:
For the defense:

"Disease trackers are hopeful for a return to normal as COVID restrictions fade, but ‘things can change on a dime’; Most vaccinated people are safe to go mask-free, they say, for now" by Kay Lazar Globe Staff, June 3, 2021
A few weeks ago, some feared that Governor Charlie Baker was lifting COVID-19 restrictions too soon, but now disease trackers say that Massachusetts appears to be in a good position to hold the deadly coronavirus at bay — and for most fully vaccinated people to return to their normal lives.
In the first week since most state restrictions were lifted, Massachusetts is reporting near-record low numbers of new infections, and more than half of residents are fully vaccinated. Those promising trends are emerging as the state heads into a season where people are more likely to be outside, where fresh, circulating air makes it less likely to breathe in aerosols from someone who is infected.
“At this point we are in nice weather and there is no evidence to suggest we have problematic” new strains of the virus in Massachusetts, said Dr. Joshua Barocas, an infectious diseases specialist at Boston Medical Center. “We also have one of the highest vaccination rates in the whole country, so it’s probably fine for now” for vaccinated people to go about their lives mask-free, but Barocas and others caution that people shouldn’t get complacent: the virus roared back last fall after a deep summertime drop in cases, and huge swaths of the world remain unvaccinated. Today’s vaccines have provided remarkable protection so far, but it’s unclear if they will continue to be effective against future variants, he said.
At the same time, public health leaders warn that significantly lower vaccination rates in communities of color, along with higher numbers of infections, have left people in some pockets of the state far more vulnerable than others.
Barocas, who is vaccinated, said he would feel comfortable eating in a restaurant, as well as walking around without a mask, but he and other physicians noted that millions of Americans with a compromised immune system may still be at risk for serious complications from COVID, despite being vaccinated, and will need to continue taking precautions.
So much for the "remarkable protection."
“For everybody else, it’s a matter of calculation,” Barocas said. “If you are vaccinated, it’s unlikely you will get sick, and even if you do, it’s very unlikely you will get very sick and die.”
Was anyway, what with the 99.97% survival rate!
As of May 24, there have been just 3,343 reported “breakthrough” instances of people in Massachusetts testing positive for the virus out of more than 2.9 million fully vaccinated individuals, according to state data. That translates to a breakthrough infection rate of 0.11% of all fully vaccinated people. Very few of those breakthrough infections make people seriously ill, and emerging science suggests the amount of virus they’re carrying is likely not enough to infect others.
All up on the #s now, huh?
Yeah, it is "just" more than 3,000 cases where the vaccines have failed.
Massachusetts closed out May with a seven-day average of 158 new confirmed COVID cases on Monday, state data show — about a third of the number from the same day a year ago. And the percentage of all tests coming back positive has also plunged during that time, from over 8 percent to now below 1 percent.
Baker was bullish about the state’s progress at a briefing on Wednesday. Even though the overall number of vaccinated people continues to rise, infectious disease experts say there may still be a rise in COVID-19 cases in the fall, similar to other respiratory viruses as more people move indoors, but that increase is likely to be far less dramatic than last autumn’s surge.
“The coronavirus may come back to some extent, but not in the levels we had seen,” said Brooke Nichols, assistant professor of global health at Boston University School of Public Health.
Someone pass the salt as they lump all respiratory viruses into the CVD bucket.
Despite the encouraging trends, infectious disease experts say now is not the time to be less vigilant.
“If nothing else, this pandemic has shown us how quickly [a virus] can envelop the world if you are not paying attention,” said Dr. Daniel McQuillen, a senior physician of infectious diseases at Beth Israel Lahey Health and president-elect of the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
Barocas, the infectious disease specialist at Boston Medical Center, said he’s concerned that the public focus has been so trained on getting back to normal that discussions about backup plans if the virus surges again have gotten short shrift.
“It looks really good right now in Massachusetts but things can change on a dime,” Barocas said, “and we need to have a contingency plan, a return to abnormalcy plan.”
What is abnormal is continuing to read this slop and the gossip is California has just locked down again!
Keep an eye on the polls, and they have one hell of a choice, 'eh?
Flipping below the fold one finds:
"Massachusetts lawmakers are considering several bills this session aimed at promoting racially integrated schools, taking on the issue for the first time in several years amid the racial reckoning following the murder of George Floyd. Recommendations include increasing the budget for the Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity, or METCO, one of the country’s largest and longest-running voluntary school-desegregation programs, which buses 3,200 students of color in Boston and Springfield to predominantly white suburban schools, and a bill that proposes labeling each district and school among one of three categories: diverse, segregated, or intensely segregated. “School segregation is definitely among the top issues that are affecting our students,” said Representative Chynah Tyler, a Boston Democrat and one of the lawmakers who filed bills on the topic. “It’s an obstacle in place as to why our students aren’t excelling to the level we know they’re able to.” In the past decade, the number of “intensely segregated” Massachusetts schools serving children of color — meaning 90 percent of their students were Black, Latino, or Asian-American — increased by one-third to 192, according to a report last year by researchers at the Beyond Test Scores Project and the Center for Education and Civil Rights. Lawmakers described the legislative proposals as baby steps in tackling the highly complicated issue. Citing research showing both white students and students of color do better in diverse schools, many experts believe the increasing segregation of Black and Latino students harms their prospects for academic and career opportunity....."
Back to the busing of the 1970s (how does that help the carbon footprint), and it is time for me to separate myself from the Globe and $peaking of divide$, a fierce debate has been roiling this normally placid enclave.

Beneath that is someone being railroaded:
So that's why the price of a stamp is going up to 58 cents, and the political persecution is real under the communi$t regime of Biden.

"White House outlines plan to distribute 25 million doses around the world; Three-quarters will be given to the COVAX effort and the rest reserved for ‘immediate needs and to help with surges around the world’" by Sheryl Gay Stolberg New York Times, June 3, 2021
The White House, besieged with requests from other nations to share excess doses of coronavirus vaccine, on Thursday announced it will distribute an initial 25 million doses this month across a “wide range of countries” within Latin America and the Caribbean, South and Southeast Asia, and Africa, as well as the Palestinian territories, the war-ravaged Gaza Strip, and the West Bank.
The doses represent an initial tranche of a total of 80 million that President Biden has pledged to send overseas by the end of this month. Three-quarters of that first batch will be given to the international vaccine effort known as COVAX, officials said at a White House news conference on the pandemic. The rest will be reserved for “immediate needs and to help with surges around the world,” said Jake Sullivan, the president’s national security adviser, including in India and Iraq as well as the West Bank and Gaza.
I only highlight it because I so often find the terminology of "reporters" offensive in addition the endless barrage of agenda-pushing lies and distortion, and how quickly Gaza and Israel has been forgotten.
Thursday’s announcement comes a week before Biden leaves for Cornwall, England, to meet with the heads of state of the Group of 7 industrialized nations, where the global vaccine supply is certain to be a topic of discussion. Officials said the Biden administration would continue to donate additional doses throughout the summer as they become available.
As is the global minimum tax(!).
“This is just the beginning,” said Jeffrey Zients, Biden’s coronavirus response coordinator. “Expect a regular cadence of shipments around the world, across the next several weeks.”
While China and Russia have used vaccine donations as an instrument of diplomacy in an effort to extract favors from other nations, Biden has insisted the United States will not do that — a point that Sullivan emphasized Thursday.
It's the new currency of the realm, and the Chinese shot comes later.
Nearly two-thirds of US adults have had at least one shot of a coronavirus vaccine, and the rate of new cases and deaths has plummeted, contributing to an overall picture across the country that is “encouraging and uplifting,” said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but the picture around the world, especially in poorer nations in Africa and Central and South America, where vaccination rates are much lower, is bleak. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia, and Paraguay are all awash in new cases; in Colombia, nearly 500 people a day have died of the coronavirus over the last several weeks. A sudden, sharp rise in coronavirus cases in many parts of Africa could amount to a continental third wave, the World Health Organization warned on Thursday.
I need to point out one thing here: it is now the BEGINNING of WINTER DOWN THERE!
This WHOLE THING is a MASSIVE FRAUD while it gives you a clue as to what will befall us in the Northern Hemisphere this fall, and the W.H.O. is a criminal organization!
REPENT NOW, you bastards!
Some African nations have less than 1 percent of their populations partially vaccinated, according to data from the Our World in Data project at the University of Oxford, and the percentages of vaccinated people in Honduras and Guatemala are around 3 percent of the population.
Then what I read in the comments over at Makow is correct, other nations and their leaders for not allowing these insane vaccination numbers in their countries, and one almost feels like Africans are being looked after by a martyred saint.
Sullivan said the administration has decided to give priority to countries he described as neighbors of the United States, including Guatemala, Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador, while also working with existing regional networks like the African Union to allow local authorities to allocate the vaccines as they see fit.
Biden came into office vowing to restore the United States’ position as a leader in global health, and he has been under increasing pressure from activists, as well as some business leaders, to do more to address the global vaccine shortage. Biden’s pledge to donate 80 million doses involves vaccines made by four manufacturers. Besides AstraZeneca, they are Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson, the last three of which have received US emergency authorization for their vaccines.
Biden has described the vaccine donations as part of an “entirely new effort” to increase vaccine supplies and vastly expand manufacturing capacity, most of it in the United States. To broaden supply further, Biden recently announced he would support waiving intellectual property protections for coronavirus vaccines. He also put Zients in charge of developing a global vaccine strategy, and Zients said the United States is lifting the Defense Production Act’s “priority rating” for three vaccine-makers — AstraZeneca, Novovax, and Sanofi. None of those vaccines are authorized for US use, and the shift means that US-based companies that supply the vaccine-makers will be able to “make their own decisions on which orders to fulfill first,” Zients said.....

"Alarm in Africa as virus surges, vaccine shipments grind to ‘near halt’" by Gerald Imray The Associated Press, June 3, 2021
CAPE TOWN, South Africa — COVID-19 vaccine shipments have ground to “a near halt” in Africa while virus cases have spiked 20 percent over the last two weeks, the World Health Organization said Thursday, a bleak scenario for the continent on both those critical fronts.
South Africa alone saw a more than 60 percent rise in new cases last week as the country with the highest coronavirus caseload in Africa continued to face delays in its effort to roll out the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
More than 1 million J&J doses that should have already been put to use remain on hold at a pharmaceuticals plant in South Africa because of contamination concerns at a US factory. The head of the Africa CDC said he expects an update in the coming days from US federal regulators on those and other doses of J&J, which he called an essential vaccine for Africa because it’s a one-dose shot and doesn’t need the ultra-cold storage facilities required by others.
“The threat of a third wave in Africa is real and rising," WHO Africa director Dr. Matshidiso Moeti said. "Our priority is clear. It’s crucial that we swiftly get vaccines into the arms of Africans at high risk of falling seriously ill and dying of COVID-19.
Shove it, "doc."
“While many countries outside Africa have now vaccinated their high-priority groups and are able to even consider vaccinating their children, African countries are unable to even follow up with second doses for high-risk groups."
Moeti repeated Africa’s ongoing plea that richer countries that have reached “significant vaccination coverage” now release their remaining doses. Moeti’s plea came hours before President Biden announced that the US would share some of its vaccines.
Sub-Saharan Africa has on average administered only one vaccine dose per 100 people, Moeti said, compared to a global average of 23 doses per 100 people. Some higher income countries have even reached 62 doses per 100 people, she added.
The issue with contamination of Johnson & Johnson doses at a US facility is a tiny part of the problem, but it’s a crucial one right now for South Africa, which has more than 1.6 million virus cases and more than 56,000 deaths, the most in Africa by far.
South Africa has seen a positivity rate of around 11-12 percent among people tested for the virus in recent days, well above the 5 percent threshold that South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said marks “a cause for concern.”
Meanwhile, the country's vaccine rollout has faced a number of hurdles. The country ultimately rejected the first vaccine available over concerns about whether AstraZeneca showed enough efficacy against the variant first detected in South Africa — now referred to by WHO as the beta variant.
If the variant even exists, it is scientifically weaker because that is how a virus survives. It doesn't kill its host because then it also dies.
Now the contamination problems at the Emergent BioSolutions plant in Baltimore earlier this year have directly impacted South Africa's already lagging rollout. South Africa's health department was due to receive 1.1 million J&J doses in May. Another 900,000 were then meant to be delivered at the start of June, according to the government's schedule.
Both batches are in South Africa but remain frustratingly on hold after the US Food and Drug Administration shut down the Emergent plant in mid-April and put a lockdown on any doses that might be linked to it across the world. South Africa has vaccinated only 1.1 million of its 60 million people, and more than half of them have only received one dose of a two-dose vaccine.
Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director John Nkengasong said he was in contact earlier Thursday with J&J officials and they told him an announcement by the FDA was expected Friday or early next week.
On Tuesday, the FDA declined to comment on when it might resolve the concerns over Emergent’s factory, which included poorly trained workers and dirty walls and floors, and led to the immediate discarding of 15 million J&J doses connected to the factory.....
It's $upport for terrorists engaged in regime change against an overwhelmingly legitimate government that is beloved by its people (the U.S. government must be jealous since it is reviled by its own).
They spelled colored wrong.
I flagged that because it made me think. Pride is a quality exhibited by Lucifer, whereas those who worship the Lord are taught to be humble.
Just an observation.
Now back to the Evil:
That will be on his way to the G-7 meeting, according to the leaks:
"The Trump Justice Department secretly seized the phone records of four New York Times reporters spanning nearly four months in 2017 as part of a leak investigation, the Biden administration disclosed on Wednesday. It was the latest in a series of revelations about the Trump administration secretly obtaining reporters’ communications records in an effort to uncover their sources. Last month, the Biden Justice Department disclosed Trump-era seizures of the phone logs of reporters who work for The Washington Post and the phone and e-mail logs for a CNN reporter. Dean Baquet, the executive editor of The Times, condemned the action by the Trump administration. “Seizing the phone records of journalists profoundly undermines press freedom,” he said in a statement. “It threatens to silence the sources we depend on to provide the public with essential information about what the government is doing.” The department informed the Times that law enforcement officials had seized phone records from Jan. 14 to April 30, 2017, for four Times reporters: Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman, Eric Lichtblau, and Michael S. Schmidt. The government also secured a court order to seize logs — but not contents — of their e-mails, it said, but “no records were obtained.” The Justice Department did not say which article was being investigated, but the lineup of reporters and the timing suggested that the leak investigation related to classified information reported in an April 22, 2017, article the four reporters wrote about how James B. Comey, then the F.B.I. director, handled politically charged investigations during the 2016 presidential election."
Cry me a river!
I mean, really!
The Obama/Biden administration SPIED ON and JAILED REPORTERS under Holder. (something Trump did not do).
I guess they forgot that because it is rare for the Justice Department to use subpoenas to get records of reporters in leak investigations, so the New York Times just wished Biden a happy birthday before moving on!
"U.S. prosecutors this week put a price tag on damage to the U.S. Capitol from the Jan. 6 breach — $1.5 million so far — and for the first time are asking defendants to cover some of the bill in plea offers, prosecutors and defense lawyers said.

The Tampa crane operator pleaded guilty to one felony count of obstructing an official proceeding of Congress and faces sentencing July 19 in Washington....."
What, no charge of insurrection?
Here is something that would surely open the gates of hell in this country:
"Trump increasingly obsessed with ballot audits in bid to overturn election" by Josh Dawsey and Rosalind S. Helderman Washington Post, June 3, 2021
WASHINGTON — Former president Donald Trump remains relentlessly focused on the false claim that the November election was stolen from him and is increasingly consumed with the notion that ballot reviews pushed by his supporters around the country could prove that he won, according to people familiar with his comments.
They already have, and the entire world knows he won in a landslide and had it stolen from him in the dark of the morning.
Not that it really matters. He brought Warp Speed and were he still in office he would be dealing with exactly the same problems.
Trump has rebuffed calls from some advisers to drop the matter, instead fixating on an ongoing Republican-commissioned audit in Arizona and plotting how to secure election reviews in other states, such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Georgia, according to advisers. He is most animated by the efforts in Fulton County, Ga., and Maricopa County, Ariz., according to two advisers who, like others interviewed for this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations.
Trump’s interest has been fueled by conversations he has had with an array of figures who have publicly touted false claims of election fraud. Among them, according to advisers, is Christina Bobb, a host at the One America News network who has privately discussed the Arizona audit with the former president and his team; Mike Lindell, the chief executive of the company MyPillow; and Pennsylvania state Senator Doug Mastriano, a Republican, who urged the state’s congressional delegation to reject Biden’s victory there last fall.
If the pre$$ says it's not true it likely is, and Lindell did a powerhouse video that the pre$$ has ignored.
Trump has become so fixated on the audits that he suggested recently to allies that their success could result in his return to the White House this year, according to people familiar with comments he has made. Some advisers said that such comments appear to be just offhand musings.
A Trump spokesman declined to comment on the record.
We are really fucked, because righting the wrong would unleash hell.
The commies really have us in a vise grip on this one.
Trump’s deepening preoccupation with post-election audits has created a singular situation, one in which a former president is regularly attacking the electoral legitimacy of his successor, and it comes as a coterie of his most devoted supporters have intensified their own rhetoric, making allusions to undemocratic actions that could result in Trump’s return.
That's why New York State Attorney General Letitia James has joined a criminal inquiry into the Trump Organization and convened a grand jury -- to block his return that would be called for by 75% of the American people.
This weekend, at a conference in Dallas of adherents of the QAnon extremist ideology, former national security adviser Michael Flynn was asked by an audience member whether a military coup like the one in Myanmar could happen in the United States.
’'No reason, I mean, it should happen here,’' he responded.
Flynn later posted a statement on Parler saying that his comments had been misinterpreted and that he does not support a military coup, but at the same event, lawyer Sidney Powell — who has represented Flynn in the past and also filed multiple unsuccessful legal challenges to last year’s election result — said she believed Trump should be ’'reinstated’' to office this year.
Powell did not respond to requests for comment. She told CNN on Monday that Flynn had in no way encouraged ’'any act of violence or any military insurrection’' and said that the media had ’'grossly distorted’' his remarks.
The escalating rhetoric by the former president and his backers shows that he is intent on keeping alive the falsehood that the 2020 race was rigged, a claim that critics say has perilous implications for the country and the public’s faith in how they select their leaders.
We don't have any "faith" in government leaders anymore anyway, and the lying pre$$ whining about falsehoods is really the limit.
Trump’s campaign against the election continues nearly five months after a mob of his supporters stormed the US Capitol, seeking to prevent the formalization of Biden’s win, and public surveys show that the lie about the election has taken root inside the Republican Party: A CNN poll in April found that 70 percent of Republicans said they did not believe Biden had won the election legitimately.
Hey, at one time the American people thought Iraq had WMD.
Trump has seized on such polls as evidence that investigations are warranted, advisers said.
Local officials in states where Trump supporters are pushing for ballot reviews have decried the attacks on the election results as dangerous.
Truth never fears an audit!
In Arizona, Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a Republican who defeated an incumbent Democrat in November, said he believed state GOP leaders knew that the claims of electoral fraud in the state are ’'facially laughable.’'
Still, he said in an interview, ’'ordinary people, the ones who are showing up on a Wednesday night at a political meeting, I believe they really believe it, and that’s super sad.’'
These guys are insulting, and he objects to it because then HIS ELECTION would be CALLED INTO QUESTION!
’'We can’t indulge these insane lies any longer,’' Richer tweeted last month. ’'As a party. As a state. As a country,’' but Trump has ramped up his public statements about the election in recent weeks and is expected to continue his crusade this weekend in a speech in North Carolina and at various summer rallies that are slated to begin this month.
I know how he feels every morning for about two hours.
’'Great work is being done in Georgia revealing the Election Fraud of the 2020 Presidential Election,’' he said in a statement Monday, adding: ’'The Left talks about election security but they do not practice what they preach because they are afraid of what might be found.’'
Advisers say he voraciously watches any television coverage he can find of the Arizona recount and reads ’'everything he can get his hands on’' about the audits, according to one person who speaks to Trump frequently, and he has made supporting his claims of a stolen election — or at least remaining silent about them — a litmus test of sorts as he decides whom to endorse for state and
We were told he doesn't read(!) when he was in office, and that's where the print ended so.....
After the gunfire in front of cameras during the anniversary last week.
The devil then went down to Georgia:
"Georgia’s education board on Thursday approved a resolution that says the United States and Georgia are not racist and students should not be taught that racism or slavery are anything but deviations from the country’s “authentic founding principles.” The measure — approved by an 11-2 vote — was introduced amid a national reckoning with race that has prompted legislatures in Republican-controlled states across the country to try to define what race-related ideas can be taught in public schools and colleges....."
The opposite is the truth, for it has been the Marxi$t teachers that have defined what are relations, and woe to those who object.
The mo-fos at the New York Times say it is because of vaccines.
Yeah, the Deep South and Mountain West, including Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Wyoming.
It's the THIRD WAVE if you can believe it (no one does but they keep shoveling).
They shouldn't be vaccinated at all since “children are at (a) very, very low risk of actually getting COVID disease.”
"In the span of just five days last month, China gave out 100 million shots of its COVID-19 vaccines. After a slow start, China is now doing what virtually no other country in the world can: leveraging the power and all-encompassing reach of its one-party system and a maturing domestic vaccine industry to administer shots at a staggering pace. The rollout is far from perfect, including uneven distribution, but Chinese public health leaders now say they’re hoping to inoculate 80% of the population of 1.4 billion by the end of the year. China is now averaging about 19 million shots per day, according to Our World in Data’s rolling seven-day average....."
Yeah, “the Communist Party has people all the way down to every village, every neighborhood. That’s the draconian part of the system, but it also gives very powerful mobilization,” according to Ray Yip, former country director for the Gates Foundation in China and a public health expert.
Sound familiar, Americans?
"Bahrain has begun offering a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine for some people, six months after they received two shots of China’s Sinopharm vaccine. The mixing of vaccines comes as the Mideast island nation struggles through its worst wave of the virus despite being one of the top countries in the world in per-capita inoculations. The government’s BeAware mobile phone app allows those living in Bahrain to register for booster shots of either the Pfizer or the Sinopharm jabs; however, The Wall Street Journal in its Thursday edition quoted Waleed Khalifa al-Manea, Bahrain’s undersecretary of health, as describing Sinopharm as providing a high degree of protection, but he acknowledged offering Pfizer to those with special needs, without explaining why the kingdom made that decision. Officials at Sinopharm did not immediately respond to a request for comment....."
Yup, sure LOOKS LIKE the "VIRUS" is IN the VACCINE, and yet all governments push on!
Now for the migrant crisis that isn't:
"Fivefold surge in migrants en route to US overwhelms Panama" by Michael McDonald Bloomberg, June 3, 2021
Panama is struggling to cope with a five-fold increase in migrants who trek for days through its dense southern jungle in the hope of reaching the United States, according to the country’s top diplomat.
The migrants, from as far away as Senegal and Nigeria, are starting to overwhelm Panama's shelters as numbers surge, Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes said.
“The migrant situation has gotten a lot worse,” Mouynes said Wednesday, in an interview in New York. “We give them food, we put them in camps where you do biometric testing and COVID testing. That is fine if you have numbers you can manage, but if all of a sudden you have five times that amount it becomes difficult.”
Just getting us all ready for such eventualities, no doubt, and WHY would they want to come to a racist country built on white supremacism?
Just asking, and why isn't the Left up in arms about it?
The flow of people picked up as travel restrictions eased across the world, after the pandemic increased unemployment and poverty in developing nations. Migrants enter South America in places where visa rules are favorable, then make their way north to Colombia, before crossing into Panama across the dangerous no-man's land known as the Darien Gap.
Mouynes said she is seeking talks with governments in South America to help control the flow, or at least to vaccinate migrants as they travel.
It's a SINGLE-MINDED OBSESSION with the ruling cla$$, and a VERY UNHEALTHY MENTAL ATTITUDE!
The problem is easier to fix than the more visible migration flow toward the United States from the so-called northern triangle nations of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, Mouynes said.
Latin America has been among the regions worst-hit by the pandemic, both in terms of deaths and in economic damage. Panama has lagged regional peers in its vaccination drive, but Mouynes said the government is targeting a “massive” inoculation program in the third quarter to achieve herd immunity by September.
The government of President Laurentino Cortizo, which took office in 2019, is inoculating elderly and at-risk populations and will begin mass vaccination in July, she said.
Unlike most countries in Latin America, which raced to acquire shots wherever they could, Panama put nearly all its eggs in the basket of Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine.
Mouynes met with Pfizer during her trip to New York, and said she received assurances that Panama would get the shots it ordered.
"We want Pfizer to recognize that Panama's huge bet on Pfizer in terms of not having this hedge with other pharmaceuticals also leaves us at a bit of a risk if they don't deliver the supply," Mouynes said. "We are targeting mass vaccination in July. If that doesn't happen for us we will be in big trouble."
What is disturbing is Panama is right along the equator and the heat should render viruses nil.
Vaccines could also play a role in regional foreign policy, Mouynes said. Offering shots to Venezuela could be one way to get President Nicolas Maduro to sit down with the opposition. So far, nothing else that's been tried has worked, she added. “The extent of the humanitarian crisis that is going on there is similar to Syria,” she said. “The quicker we recognize that the path we have taken has not been successful, the better, because doing more of what we were doing is not going to make a difference.”
This has reached the level of vomiting offensiveness.
Time to invade again like war-criminal H.W?
"Two senators defy changes in how military treats sex assault cases" by Jennifer Steinhauer New York Times, June 3, 2021
WASHINGTON — Over nearly a decade, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has painstakingly cobbled together a bipartisan Senate majority for legislation that would overhaul the way the military handles sexual assault and other serious crimes, a shift that many experts say is long overdue.
Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, has won backing from President Biden — something President Obama never openly gave — and numerous colleagues who voted against the bill the last time it came to the floor, a rare turn of events in a deeply divided body, but now she is running up against a final hurdle: opposition from the leaders of her chamber’s Armed Services Committee, Senators Jack Reed, Democrat of Rhode Island, and James Inhofe, Republican of Oklahoma. Hardly a political sweater set, the two men, both Army veterans who arrived in the Senate in the mid-1990s, nonetheless often coordinate like one on military matters.
Reed, 71, and Inhofe, 86, have combined to push back against Gillibrand’s legislation and delay any move toward a swift vote, a stance that many of the bill’s backers say shows far more deference to military commanders and committee protocols than justified given the decades of failure in protecting victims in the armed forces.....
Going to have to get rid of those old white men.
Now go make war and commit mass-murder over lies as they they cite complaints from the lying Da Nang Dick!!!
It was at this point that the editorial I led this post with appeared, and I stopped reading the Globe after that.
Flipping below the fold I found that Janey is on the hot seat as the honeymoon is over a little more than 2 months on the job and the first superPAC weighs in with digital ads promoting Andrea Campbell for mayor of Boston.
Then at the bottom of the page:
"Thousands of Massachusetts day-care providers will be able to regularly screen children and employees for COVID-19 this summer, thanks to a new partnership between the state and a local nonprofit. Neighborhood Villages, a child-care advocacy group, is teaming up with the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care to offer free weekly pooled COVID-19 testing for child-care programs throughout the state. The initiative, which relies on testing kits from the genetic-sequencing company Veritas, will test roughly 6,000 children, teachers, and staff per week throughout the summer, with the potential for expansion in the fall if there is enough demand. In pooled testing, samples from multiple people are tested together to obtain quicker results. If the pool tests negative, all samples are recorded as negative. If the pool tests positive, samples in that pool are tested individually to identify positive cases. The state has offered pooled testing for children and teachers in K-12 schools since February....."
The photo reminds me to tell you to hug your kids and keep them close -- and out of the public school system -- because they tests are manipulated depending on the cycle threshold they are run at, with anything over 35 resulting in a false positive and noninfectious "case."
At least there is still one good sheriff in Massachusetts as we hit the slippery slope of history this summer.
Yup, the Great Reset wears $elf-$erving Red Sox!
Now back to work as state officials and business leaders launch a new ‘hub’ to promote financial-tech startups, something that has been in the works for more than a year, as civic leaders home in on another big sector to foster in Massachusetts, following life sciences and digital health.
Was so loud I couldn't hear them talking as they run rings around us:
Amazon is spying on you, and the piece was below the turn-in for an article regarding private equity giant Blackstone acquiring the tech research firm IDG for $1.3 billion.
What's interesting about that is back on May 25th, the Globe went marching with Amazon employees to shareholders’ offices targeting five corporations — State Street, Fidelity, T. Rowe Price, Vanguard Group, and BlackRock — that collectively hold 21 percent of Amazon’s shares after Amazon raked in more than $21 billion in profit in 2020, nearly 84 percent more than the year before, as consumers flocked to online shopping sites to avoid going out during the coronavirus pandemic (those record profits “came at the expense of the exploitation of Black and brown folks,” so I guess no white people work there) -- at the SAME TIME that the Globe's front page was extolling what a wonderful landlord is BlackRock!
Of cour$e, nothing changes as shareholders rejected all 11 outsider proposals, including calls to disclose the risks of Amazon’s surveillance technology and antitrust liabilities, pay and promotion rates among gender and racial groups, and its plastic waste output.
Now go watch a movie on Prime!
What I did see last night was the Bruin's overtime win thanks to the goaltending of Rask, and what a difference a (mostly unmasked) crowd make!
I then checked the score of the Laker game before turning the TV off and going to bed.
