Hillary Clinton Give Us GOOD NEWS For a Change

While it may have seemed impossible years ago, we are glad to hear what Hillary had to say last night….well, at least part of it.

Hillary Clinton

When it comes to “unknowns” in the 2020 presidential race, we may finally be able to lay the largest to rest.

The democratic field is swelling in size in anticipation of some of the larger names having declined to commit to running at this time.  The new, up-and-comers such as Kamala Harris have already begun injecting the nation’s discourse with their blatant, culture-grabbing lies and attempts to look “hip” for the youth voters needed to keep the party afloat.  Harris’ asinine untruth was incredibly offensive as well, having lied about being a fan of rap music…during Black History Month.

Out there in the ether still, however, are a number of major candidates who have not yet announced their possible candidacy – including Beto O’Rourke and Joe Biden, the latter of which is already practically running.

During an interview with News 12 on Monday, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton stated she isn’t going to run for president in 2020.

Hillary said, “I’m not running, but I’m going to keep working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”

She also stated, “I want to be sure that people understand, I’m going to keep speaking out. I’m not going anywhere. What’s at stake in our country, the kinds of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me. … We’ve gotten into really opposing camps, unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my adult life.”

While it will certainly come as welcome news for republicans who are growing weary of constantly having to explain Clinton’s sordid and clandestine history to the head-in-the-sand mainstream politicos on social media, democrats are also likely breathing a sigh of relief after Hillary co-opted the entire DNC through a cash influx in 2016, effectively turning the primaries into her own coronation.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…
