White House Shreds Democrats Over Rejection Of ‘Four Different Offers’ To Extend Jobless Benefits

Published

on

Democrats are proving more and more that coronavirus is nothing more than a political weapon and tool in their hands to try and push through a “wish list” of items they want to be passed into law, which is all related to establishing more and more of the socialist infrastructure they want to replace our current free-market system.

How are they proving this?

Democrats have rejected four different offers to extend enhanced federal unemployment insurance benefits, according to White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

“The Democrats believe they have all the cards on their side, and they are willing to play those cards at the expense of those who are hurting,” Meadows said.

Meadows said Trump officials will continue negotiating with top Democrats on Capitol Hill in an effort strike a deal on a new round of coronavirus aid that would include extending the unemployment benefits that expire this month.

“The Democrats have made zero offers over the past three days,” Meadows told reporters at the White House.

Meadows went on to say that Democrats are now wanting to spend more than the $3 billion that was set aside in the bill passed back in May. What are they asking for? How about an increase in education spending from $100 billion to $400 billion. That’s quite a jump, yeah?

Democrats are planning to wrap up all votes today so they can kick off the August recess.

Folks, it’s clear that the left has politicized the snot out of the coronavirus and will continue to do so if they think it can help them further their agenda and get pieces of legislation passed through this “negotiation” process.

Deplorable, isn’t it?

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…

Strange New Correlation Discovered Between COVID and Bald Men

This strain of coronavirus just keeps getting weirder.

From the very onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the medical community appeared stumped.  Sure, this was a novel virus and, as such, came complete with a number of strange and unknown consequences. There were your “long-haulers”; folks who seemed to continually have issues recovering from the illness.  Others lost their senses of taste and smell, sometimes for months on end.  There were even reports of so-called “COVID toes” – an ailment that affected the coloration of the skin on toes and fingers of a small percentage of patients. Now, in another odd correlation within the coronavirus spectrum, it appears that men who’d gone bald are at particular risk for certain side effects of COVID-19. New research suggests they spend up to twice as long in hospital with Covid than those who still have a full head of hair. Science seems to have at least some idea of why this is. They are also admitted to intensive care in higher numbers. Scientists say men’s Covid vulnerability largely comes down to male sex hormones called androgens. Men who are genetically more sensitive to androgens appear to be more likely to suffer severe Covid. They are also more likely to have hair loss, called androgenetic alopecia, which affects around half of men over the age of 50. The science seemed to back this up. A team of US doctors measured men’s sensitivity to androgens by counting a chemical called CAG. High levels indicate that a man is more likely to have hair loss. Of 65 men hospitalised with the infection, those with high CAG levels had worse Covid outcomes in the 60 days following their hospitlisation. They spent 47 days in hospital, on average, and 70.6 per cent were admitted to ICU. For comparison, those with low CAG levels spent an average of 25 days…
