Amid National Turmoil, DHS Secretary Ensures Mundane Midterm

Kirstjen Nielsen has a powerful message for Americans as they prepare to hit the polls.

2018 election

Americans the nation over are living on the edge of their seats, so to speak, as the national mood turns ever more tense by the hour.

Of course, we can thank the mainstream media for a great deal of this inner turmoil and our feelings of impending doom.  You can’t take a peek at a 24-hour news station without seeing a multitude of chyrons, graphics, and assorted distorted faces, all counting down the hours until Americans cast their ballot and begin to stare down the possibilities of the next 2 years.

For the democrats, a big win could signal the end of the Trump Era with impeachment looming on the horizon of the half-drained swamp.  For the republicans, their focus is on maintaining in the face of a political storm the likes of which Washington has never seen.

No fear, says the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, however.  Things will be just fine.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Friday she believes the midterm elections will be the “most secure election in the modern era” but told Fox News in an exclusive interview that “everything is on the table” if others try to meddle with the vote.

In New York City for a cyber security event at the Council on Foreign Relations, Nielsen said the government is in a “tremendously different place” than in 2016, when the Russians attempted to interfere in the presidential election.

“I do think it’s safe to stay this will be the most secure election in the modern era,” Nielsen said. “We are in a tremendously different place than we were in 2016 in terms of partnerships with state and locals and everything they have done to secure their infrastructure.”

Pressed on whether a cyber response is being readied by the United States if attacked, Nielsen said, “Everything is on the table. I think the president has made it very clear if we are attacked we will defend ourselves so every element of power that we have available to us will be considered in terms of our response.”

Concerns over election hacking have been heightened in recent years due to democratic fear mongering on the subject of Russia.

Ironically, those concerns do not seem to translate into the broader issues of voter fraud, to which the democratic response has often been indifference.

CNN Medical Analyst Wants To Cancel Christmas: ‘We Just Can’t Do It This Year’

Well, it seems the radical left in this country, especially the folks who work for mainstream media outlets, are just chomping at the bit to ruin the holidays for everyone, which isn’t all that surprising given how much they seem to hate the reason for the season in the first place. CNN medical analyst, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, appeared on the network where he said that “we just can’t do” Christmas “this year” because of the coronavirus. “So the next big holiday is obviously the Christmas, New Year’s holiday where people tend to travel, want to travel, want to be with family, but we just can’t do it this year. We’re going to cause needless deaths and particularly that’s among people we really care about, you know, our most vulnerable, our grandparents, our parents, our neighbors,” the doctor said. “We can’t travel this year. We need to stay home. This is a sacrifice that Americans can make and we should be making it for each other. Stay home, mask up, we’ll have a great series of holidays next year. We’ll really have something to celebrate next year,” Reiner stated. via Daily Wire: Reiner also said anyone who traveled for Thanksgiving “should be quarantining.” “They should be quarantining for probably seven to 10 days and then getting tested. That’s what they should do. If they just go back to what they were doing — going back to work, they are going to spread the virus. So much of this virus is spread by asymptomatic folks. So stay home for more than a week, get tested, then go back to work,” he said. “This virus is, you know, no longer isolated to certain enclaves in the United States. It’s all over the country. And when people travel from place to place, they just…

Moderna Files For Emergency Approval For New Coronavirus Vaccine

Published

on

Moderna released a statement on Monday saying they are going to ask the Food and Drug Administration to give emergency approval to its new experimental COVID-19 vaccine. This makes Moderna the second company to file this request, following hot on the heels of Pfizer who filed their application earlier in the month. Moderna stated that new data shows their vaccine as being 94.1 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infection. Pfizer’s effective rate was 95 percent. via Daily Wire: “We believe that our vaccine will provide a new and powerful tool that may change the course of this pandemic and help prevent severe disease, hospitalizations and death,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. Bancel said last week that 20 million doses will be available by the end of the year. The FDA’s vaccine advisory committee is set to meet Dec. 17 to review data from the two companies. Pfizer said on Nov. 9 that its developmental vaccine for COVID-19 may be 90% effective at inoculating people against the disease. The rate of effectiveness was calculated by analyzing early data from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 subjects from all over the world. The small early sample means that the protection rate could change by the time the study ends and all the participants are accounted for, according to the AP. One of the major differences between the two vaccines is that the one being produced by Moderna does not need to be put in sub-zero storage, while Pfizer’s does. This makes the Moderna vaccine much easier to distribute. A third vaccine is also in the works from AstraZeneca and Oxford University. This particular vaccine is said to be 90 percent effective. Guess now we’re just playing the waiting game to see which of these companies gets approved first. They…
