Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in Seattle is, according to new reports, ready to administer first experimental dose of coronavirus vaccine to its first participant in a clinical trial on Monday.

This is huge news as it could mean first steps in truly getting a handle on the virus that is currently wreaking havoc across the country and the rest of the world.

Check out the details from Yahoo News:

Kaiser Permanente’s Phase 1 clinical trial is the first U.S. study focusing on a potential vaccine for the virus that so far has killed at least 69 Americans and more than 6,500 elsewhere in the world. The test makes use of Moderna’s mRNA-1273 vaccine.

The call went out this month to recruit 45 healthy Seattle-area adults between 18 and 55 to participate in the study, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health. During this phase of the trial, researchers only want to determine whether the RNA-based vaccine is safe. There’s no risk of infection with the virus at this stage.

Full validation of the vaccine is expected to take a year to 18 months. In the meantime, other research groups around the world are working to develop vaccines. One of those groups, at CureVac in Germany, has become the subject of a controversy over access to its vaccine.

The biggest threat of complications from the coronavirus is for those who have a compromised immune system, such as sufferers of diabetes, or those who are elderly. Much of the hoopla surrounding the illness is geared toward protecting this particular group of individuals.

Now, with this potential vaccine, things could really turn around. If it’s successful. Let’s hope that’s the case so that this thing can get controlled and we can all get back to living our normal lives.

Border Governor Trounces Biden by Declaring State of Emergency

There’s no denying it anymore.

Published

For many Republicans, there is a great fear that the White House is either in denial that a humanitarian crisis is occurring on the southern border, or that they are actively looking to tamp down the reality of the situation to save political face. In either case, many within the GOP are unwilling to wait any longer for the federal government to take the issue seriously, and are simply taking matters into their own hands this week. In Arizona… Gov. Doug Ducey will dispatch National Guard troops to the southern border in response to a recent increase in migrants being apprehended by the Border Patrol, his office announced Tuesday. The Republican leader also declared a state of emergency in four border counties — Cochise, Pima, Santa Cruz and Yuma — as well as in Maricopa and Pinal. “The U.S. Border Patrol is overwhelmed. Local law enforcement and mayors are calling out for help,” Ducey said in a video outlining his rationale. “Citizens in our border communities are concerned for their safety, and nonprofits, left to pick up the pieces of broken federal policies, are strained … and yet we still haven’t received an adequate response from the (Joe) Biden administration.” Ducey was quite perturbed with the response from the Biden team. The governor for weeks has held Biden solely responsible for the migrant surge, pointing to the Democrat’s decision to reverse a series of aggressive immigration policies implemented by his predecessor. During a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border last month, Ducey blasted Biden and his administration for being “totally divorced from the reality on the ground.” Vice President Kamala Harris has been tapped to lead the effort to rein in the migrant crisis, but has yet to either visit the border or hold a press conference detailing her work.

Capitol Riot Investigation: Official Commanded Officer to Target Anti-Trump Individuals

The complex investigation into the Capitol riots continues to surprise us.

There is still a great deal that we don’t know about the events of January 6th, as an enormous investigation into the incident continues to uncover terrifying new angles in the case. The FBI has a complex and gargantuan task ahead of them, as they attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. Thousands of hours of social media must be pored over still, and there are undoubtedly still arrests yet to be made.  Then will come the trials, which could, in turn, ignite new probes and arrests still. One of the most worrisome parts of the probe has come at the expense of the Capitol Police, who were seen on camera clearly giving a wide berth to a deadly mob.  Some officers were even seen opening barricades for the berserkers, while others took selfies with them. Now, an unbelievable bit of audio recorded during the attack is raising major concerns. A Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who described what she said were details of an internal investigation conducted in the aftermath of the mob attack. Lofgren (D-Calif.) revealed the finding while she questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee Wednesday to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack. Lofgren, who chairs the panel, described the findings as she asked him whether he had read the internal investigation reports. Lofgren said the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility was reviewing information that a radio transmission to “all outside units’ attention” that they should not be “looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd,” according to Lofgren. She added they were “only looking for any anti-Trump.” There…
