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.

FDA Pushes Through Emergency Authorization For Hydroxychloroquine As Coronavirus Treatment

Published

It finally looks like there is a ray of hope in the fight against the coronavirus as the Food and Drug Administration has issued an emergency authorization this past weekend for the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the illness that is leaving a swath of devastation wherever it roams. This particular kind of medication is typically used in the treatment of malaria, but when it is paired with azithromycin, has not yet been proven to be effective against the illness in clinical trials, however, there are growing numbers of reports and small studies that indicate it is having a positive impact on those with severe cases. Check out more details from Breitbart: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a statement on Sunday: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to BARDA to allow hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate products donated to the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) to be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with COVID-19, as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible. HHS also noted that it had “accepted 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate donated by Sandoz, the Novartis generics and biosimilars division, and one million doses of chloroquine phosphate donated by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, for possible use in treating patients hospitalized with COVID-19 or for use in clinical trials.” One of the biggest concerns about using this medication to treat this illness with hydroxychloroquine is that there may now be a massive increase in demand for the drug which could lead to a shortage in the supply. In order to curtail that problem, the HHS said, “Use of the donated medications is expected to help ease supply pressures for the drug, and the FDA is also working with…

Maryland Becomes Latest State To Issue Stay-At-Home Order In Battle Against Coronavirus

Published

The battle against the coronavirus, an invisible invading force that has ravaged the globe making folks seriously ill and killing those most vulnerable to its effects, continues to rage across the United States and things are getting intense. Many states across the country have opted to put out stay-at-home orders in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus, resulting in many businesses being shut down and other measures that are guaranteed to have a deep economic impact on the local community and the country at large. The latest state to join in on employing these measures is Maryland. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order on Monday. “We have reached a critical turning point in the fight to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Republican said during a news conference. “We are no longer asking or suggesting that Marylanders stay at home. We are directing them to do so.” “No Maryland resident should be leaving their home unless it is for an essential job or an essential reason,” Hogan said, adding that buying food and medical reasons are exempt. The state of Maryland seems to be taking the stay-at-home order to a brand new level, seeking to actually use legal action to help enforce it. Individuals who are caught breaking the order could receive a misdemeanor and be subject to a year in prison plus a $5,000 fine. The order goes into full effect Monday evening at 8 P.M. By the end of the day Monday half of the states in America will have one of these orders on the books including California, Alaska, Delaware, Colorado Connecticut, Ohio, Oregon, and many, many others. Some might think the idea of enforcing this kind of order with actual legal…
