Susan Rice: Trump’s ‘Extraordinary Failings’ Led to Far Greater Death Toll In US From COVID-19

And she honestly believes this…

Remember Susan Rice? Kind of hard to forget about her time in the Obama administration. She was tasked with initially lying to the nation about Benghazi.

Sure, she’s had numerous other gaffes over the years. That’s just one that sticks out like a sore thumb.

Now, Rice – like virtually every Democrat – is blaming President Trump for American COVID-19 deaths.

From Breitbart:

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice said that President Donald Trump’s “extraordinary failings” caused an increase in deaths and economic suffering during the coronavirus pandemic.

Rice blabbered, “They dismantled the office, discarded the playbook. They disregarded the exercise we prepared for them to enable them to work through these kinds of issues in the transition, and they never prioritized pandemics as the catastrophic threat we all knew it could be. And that, more importantly, Joy, they wasted the months of January and February in terms of gearing up our response. That’s the time when we should have been surging the acquisition and procurement of PPE and ventilators and tests, and all of the things that we now know that all Americans now know are so badly needed. We knew that to be the case. We left a whole and complete national strategic stockpile. For the Trump administration to blame the Obama administration or blame anybody else is purely an effort to cover up and distract from their own extraordinary failings.

After Trump decided to name German Ambassador Richard Grenell to the post of acting director of national intelligence, Rice decided to give her two cents.

In typical liberal fashion, she showed no remorse for the man who would be the first openly gay person to hold a cabinet-level position.

WATCH:

Rice was very bad at her job as national security adviser. She was excellent at lying and covering for Barack Obama, but that’s not exactly something of which to be proud.

For some reason, Rice decided to blast pro-American Senator Lindsey Graham last October.

Why? Because Democrats love to hate. They live for it.

If they weren’t picking on conservatives they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves.

But Graham isn’t a man to be berated. He’ll call a Democrat out as quickly as President Trump.

Okay, nobody calls out a Democrat for being ridiculous as quickly as Trump…but you get the point.

From Fox News:

Graham’s tweet was in response to Rice calling him a “piece of s—” in a preview clip of a Wednesday interview with “Pod Save the World.” Rice went after Graham while discussing the 2012 Benghazi attack and dropped several expletives.

“He’s been a piece of s—,” Rice said. “I said it, I said it, da– it. Finally. He’s a piece of s—.”

Graham’s tweet:

Rice explained last October how she was upset that President Trump didn’t tell Obama about the impending raid on ISIS leader, Abu Baker al-Baghdadi.

Because that makes sense, right? For POTUS to call his predecessor and say hey, we’re going in – you cool with it?

I’m sure Obama did stuff like that for Bush allllll the time. Good one, Susan.

Didn’t Bill Clinton once say he was perplexed that 44 never called and asked him for advice? Pretty sure that happened.

Rice whined, “Well obviously it’s a major milestone and it’s one that we all should be welcoming quite plainly, but it doesn’t mean that the fight against ISIS is over. And it doesn’t mean that we can declare mission accomplished, and just walk away. What we’ve seen time and time again in this part of the world is that when the pressure is relieved on terrorist organizations, whether al-Qaeda or ISIS, they are able to reconstitute. So we need to be vigilant. We need to maintain a minimal presence in order to ensure that the pressure stays on ISIS and they don’t come back roaring.

Southwest Caves to Pressure from Anti-Vaccine Employees

But there’s one heck of a catch.

Published

on

Last weekend was an unfortunate one for Southwest Airlines, who suffered from the cancelation of nearly a third of their flight schedule…and just days after they announced that a vaccine mandate would soon go into effect for their thousands of employees.

The airlines denied that the vaccine mandate had anything to do with the cancelations, blaming weather and air traffic control issues.  But, when researchers compared the number of total flights cancelled to the number of Southwest flights cancelled, it was fairly obvious that this was a localized issue.

Only a few days after that, a massive protest of their vaccine mandate hit home near headquarters.

By Tuesday of this week, the airline had been forced to back down.

Southwest Airlines dropped a plan to put unvaccinated workers with pending exemptions on unpaid leave after a December 8 deadline following protests by their employees.

“The employee will continue to work, while following all COVID mask and distancing guidelines applicable to their position, until the accommodation has been processed,” according to an internal note obtained by CNBC written by Southwest’s Senior Vice President of Operations and Hospitality Steve Goldberg and Vice President and Chief People Officer Julie Weber.

And then, even after a new deadline was set, the company doesn’t appear to be baring its teeth in regard to enforcement.

The company is giving employees until November 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for a medical or religious exemptions. While these exemptions are pending, employees will continue being paid, and those who are rejected will continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation),” CNBC reported.

It was unclear exactly where the buck would ultimately stop with the new timeline, but there is little doubt that we’ll soon find out.

Senator Obliterates Dr. Fauci’s Holiday Gathering Advice

“We don’t need permission”!

Published

on

If you follow the science, and the math, it’s beginning to become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is waning.  Again.

In the days before the Delta variant became the prominent strain of COVID-19, we were just about out of this whole mess.  Venues and restaurants were opening again.  People were beginning to gather at home or with friends.  When delta arrived, the ease retracted a bit.  The masks were a little more prevalent.

But now, if you simply look at the case numbers and infection rates, it is plain to see that everything is going to be okay.

This is what Florida Senator Rick Scott believes, as evidenced by his latest comments regarding the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), dismissed suggestions that Dr. Anthony Fauci can give or take away permission for Americans to celebrate the holidays with their families, calling it “insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live.”

“We don’t need Fauci’s permission to celebrate the holidays with family. People are smart. They know how to make decisions that best protect their loved ones. It’s insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live,” Scott said in response to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief’s recent remarks […]

Fauci had recently insinuated that gathering with people outside of your immediate home over the holidays may not be advisable, suggesting instead that people continue to socially distance from even their own family.
