OSHA Discussing Possible Mask Mandate Even After CDC Guideline Change

Oh, is that so?

Americans have recently been feeling a lot more normal than they have in a while, thanks to the continued dissipation of the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to a year’s worth of social distancing and a new push to vaccinate the masses, the coronavirus crisis is quickly coming to and end here in the United States.  Things have improved so much, in fact, that the CDC has adjusted their mask-wearing guidelines to give a great deal of freedom back to those who’ve been inoculated against the virus.

Despite this, it appears as though the Biden administration isn’t quite ready to let go of the facial coverings.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) may still issue a workplace mask mandate consistent with a January executive order from President Biden despite new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines that vaccinated Americans do not need to wear masks indoors.

Biden’s Jan. 21 executive order directed his administration to “consider whether any emergency temporary standards on COVID-19, including with respect to masks in the workplace, are necessary.” The order set a deadline of March 15, which was missed.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at the time that the White House was giving OSHA, which is housed in the Department of Labor, “time to get it right and time to ensure it’s right.”

Some in Washington were not in favor of the confusing regulatory landscape.

A group of House Republicans on the Committee on Education and Labor sent a letter to Labor Secretary Marty Walsh on Monday asking him to put the brakes on any new workplace rules considering the proliferation of vaccines and the new CDC guidance.

“We write to express our strong disapproval of your decision to move forward with this ill-advised and unnecessary rulemaking,” the group wrote.

“Instead, we encourage DOL to continue working with CDC on COVID-19 guidance and update OSHA’s guidance to align with the latest science to ensure the nation’s economic recovery continues and Americans can continue to return to work,” the Republicans also said.

States such as Florida and Texas have legislated heavily in the other direction of late, hoping to tamp down any possibility that facets of our government could continue to push such restrictive practices far into the future.

The Posh Get Sloshed! Affluent Greenwich Village Overrun by Drunks and Drugs

Another Democrat-run city turns chaotic.

Published

There has been plenty of talk of late about the great liberal migration, in which cities like New York and San Fransisco are hemorrhaging citizens on account of Democratic policies. The policies often see crime and taxes spike simultaneously, which shouldn’t make sense at all.  If the government is getting more money, there should be less trouble, right? Wrong.  And even in the ritziest parts of some of these liberal cities, the situation is getting out of hand. New York City’s Greenwich Village is home to movie stars and other big-name celebrities – and lately, a host of crime and violence issues both inside a local park and on the neighborhood’s streets. Just Wednesday, the New York Police Department (NYPD) announced it was looking for a man who broke into a Greenwich Village apartment and rubbed his penis on a 10-year-old girl’s feet. The man is believed to have slipped into the apartment through a fire escape around 1 a.m. on June 11, police said. The girl awoke to find the man standing at the edge of her bed. And that’s not all: Locals also told the Post drug use has been more prominent than they’ve ever seen. “I know drugs have been in Washington Square Park for a long time, but I have never seen anything like this before,” neighborhood resident Jennifer Nyp told the news site. Ruth Wyatt, who has lived near the park for more than two decades, told the Post: “The situation in the park and its surroundings has gotten out of control.” At the beginning of June, the news of crime and rampant drug use inside the famed park prompted the NYPD to move the park’s midnight curfew up to 10 p.m. But chaos ensued between people within the park and police who arrived to…

Kim Jong Un Threatens Military Battle with USA in Latest Rant

The predictable escalation received little response on the world’s stage, however.

Kim Jong Un

The unhinged nature of North Korea was on display again this week, as “Supreme” Leader Kim Jong Un began his nearly-predictable threats against the United States. Kim, and those who came before him, have long employed a strategy of raising a large fuss on the world stage to get attention, and then backing down from those inane threats only if they get something in return.  Often, the requests have to do with lifting sanctions or aid, as the tiny hermit kingdom is far from capable of even feeding its own people. And so, as was always going to happen, North Korea put on their war pants this week and started strutting around. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his government to be prepared for both dialogue and confrontation with the Biden administration — but more for confrontation, state media reported Friday, days after the United States and others urged the North to abandon its nuclear program and return to talks. Kim’s statement indicates he’ll likely push to strength his nuclear arsenal and increase pressure on Washington to give up what North Korea considers a hostile U.S. policy, though he’ll also prepare for talks to resume, some experts say. Why now? Earlier this week, leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy nations issued a statement calling for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and “the verifiable and irreversible abandonment” North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. They called on North Korea to engage and resume dialogue and respect human rights conditions. Sung Kim, the top U.S. official on North Korea, is to visit Seoul on Saturday for a trilateral meeting with South Korean and Japanese officials. His travel emphasizes the importance of the trilateral cooperation in working toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the State Department said Thursday. Kim…
