NSC coordinator John Kirby defends military vaccine mandate while admitting that he’s ‘double boosted’ and recovering from COVID-19

0

National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications John Kirby, who retired from the U.S. Navy in 2015 with the rank of rear admiral, defended the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for military service members while simultaneously admitting that he is twice boosted but still got the illness himself.

During an interview on Tuesday’s episode of “Fox & Friends” Kirby, who previously served as assistant to the secretary of defense for public affairs, described vaccinations as “a valid military requirement” while also noting that he was speaking from his home due to his own experience with COVID-19.

Kirby said of vaccination that “even if it doesn’t prevent you from getting COVID — I’m double boosted, I got it myself … it makes the symptoms a lot less severe.”

Prominent vaccine advocates, including President Joe Biden and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci, have tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated and boosted twice.

Pfizer Chairman and CEO Albert Bourla tested positive in August despite being quadruple jabbed, then announced in September that he again tested positive.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin tested positive for COVID-19 in August despite having been fully vaccinated and boosted.

“Now, as in January, my doctor told me that my fully vaccinated status, including two booster shots, is why my symptoms are less severe than would otherwise be the case,” Austin said in a statement. “Vaccinations continue to both slow the spread of COVID-19 and to make its health effects less severe. Vaccination remains a medical requirement for our workforce, and I continue to encourage everyone to get fully vaccinated and boosted.”

Austin had previously tested positive in January. “As my doctor made clear to me, my fully vaccinated status — and the booster I received in early October — have rendered the infection much more mild than it would otherwise have been,” he said in a statement at the time.

China complains about videos in which former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls out the Communist Chinese Party

0

The Chinese embassy in the U.S. issued a letter complaining about videos from the Hudson Institute’s China Center in which former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke out against the Communist Chinese Party.

“The CCP wants me to stop speaking the truth. Ain’t gonna happen,” Pompeo tweeted on Tuesday.

Pompeo’s post included a photo of a letter in which the Chinese embassy in the U.S. complained about the videos and claimed that the Communist Party of China has benefitted the nation’s people.

In the Hudson Institute videos, Pompeo called out the communist Chinese regime for being against the people of China.

“The Chinese Communist Party doesn’t represent the Chinese people,” Pompeo says in the first video, which also includes English and what appears to be Chinese text of his remarks on the screen. “The CCP is a one-party, totalitarian, political organization committed to a foreign, anti-Chinese ideology. It started out as a group of brutal, radical extremists. And frankly, not much has changed.”

“There is no bigger enemy for the CCP than you, the Chinese people,” Pompeo declared. He also said that “what the CCP truly cares about is maintaining their stranglehold over the Chinese people.”

So far, the video has amassed more than 53,000 views on YouTube.

The letter from the Chinese embassy claimed that Pompeo had “made groundless accusation against the Communist Party of China.”

“The CPC is founded for the people and nurtured by the people. The leadership of the CPC is the choice of history and of the people, and is endorsed in China’s Constitution. China’s development would never have been possible without the leadership of the CPC. Under its leadership, the Chinese people have, through arduous struggle and hard work, established the People’s Republic of China and freed themselves from bullying, oppression and subjugation,” the note claimed.

Pompeo served CIA director during a portion of President Donald Trump’s tenure before moving on to serve as secretary of state. Prior to those roles, he had served as a congressman from Kansas in the U.S. House of Representatives. He appears to be open to the possibility of mounting a White House bid.

“So the decision about what I’ll do next, the place I’ll find myself whether that’s helping someone run for president or putting myself forward as a candidate, ah, will depend on my judgment about the most effective way to deliver what the American people deserve,” Pompeo said last month.

Peter Doocy bulldozes through Jean-Pierre spin after gas prices start to climb again

0

Fox News journalist Peter Doocy bulldozed through the Biden administration’s narratives on gas prices during the media briefing with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

President Joe Biden (D) had declared victory on lowering gas prices months ago but has grown quieter after a recent surge in pricing again.

“You said the president was responsible for gas prices coming down. Is the president responsible for gas prices going up?” Doocy asked on Tuesday.

“So, it’s a lot more nuanced than that, right?” Jean-Pierre responded.

“Peter, you know this. There have been global challenges that we have all have dealt with, when I say ‘all’ I mean other countries, as well, have dealt with, since the pandemic, there’s been pandemic and there’s been [Russian Federation President Vladimir] Putin’s war,” she continued.

“And Putin’s war has increased gas prices at the pump. We have seen that over the past several months,” Jean-Pierre added. “And what the president has been able to do, he took some historic steps, when you think about the strategic petroleum reserve, and making sure that he, we were able to do everything that we can to bring that cost down for American families, give them a little bit more of a breathing room.”

Doocy went on to point out that consumers in some areas of the country were paying up to $6.41 a gallon for gas.

“Who can afford that?” he asked.

“And we understand that!” Jean-Pierre responded. “That’s why the president works so hard the past several months to make sure he did everything we can to bring gas prices down!”

Jean-Pierre went on to keep praising Biden for the “historic actions” he took to lower gas prices despite the recent increases.

The American Automobile Association calculated that the national average for a gallon of gas was $3.80. Prices hit a high of about $5.01 per gallon in June but have fallen for several months before reversing course.

Despite the drop, Americans are still paying about $1.50 more, or 60% more, than they did when Biden was inaugurated in January 2021.

Here’s the video of Doocy crushing Jean-Pierre:

Russian submarine with ‘doomsday’ nuclear weapon has reportedly just DISAPPEARED

0

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a “radioactive tsunami” — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the “Belgorod,” a massive nuclear submarine, has “gone missing” from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as “Poseidon” or the “weapon of the Apocalypse.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia’s “missing” submarine really is and broke down how these “coincidental” current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

“It’s really not a good thing … but the world has gone through things like this before,” Glenn said. “In the end, after it’s all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side.”

American Medical Association and 2 other groups call on Justice Dept. to investigate transgender ‘disinformation’ leading to threats

0

Three major medical groups called on the Justice Department to investigate “coordinated campaigns” of disinformation about transgender operations that lead to threats and intimidation.

The letter signed by the American Medical Association was sent Monday to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland at the Justice Department.

“The coordinated attacks threaten federally protected rights to health care for patients and their families. The attacks are rooted in an international campaign of disinformation, where a few high-profile users on social media share false and misleading information targeting individual physicians and hospitals, resulting in a rapid escalation of threats, harassment and disruption of care across multiple jurisdictions,” read the letter.

The letter also called on media companies to stop the campaigns from spreading on their platforms.

“Our organizations have called on technology companies to do more to prevent this practice on digital platforms, and we now urge your office to take swift action to investigate and prosecute all organizations, individuals, and entities responsible,” it added.

The letter was also signed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association.

The three groups were likely referring to outrage resulting from posts from the popular Libs of TikTok account that exposes what many would consider to be outrageous transgender operations.

In one instance, Libs of TikTok posted information from the webpage for the Boston Children’s Hospital documenting transgender care it was providing to underage people. The hospital was hit with torrents of online criticism and some threats of violence as well.

In September, the Justice Department announced the arrest of a woman it alleges called in a hoax bomb threat into the hospital and disrupted operations. It also said it would prioritize threats to hospitals related to transgender operations and healthcare.

The Libs of TikTok account has already been targeted for censorship despite it only publishing information and media posted to the internet by liberals and hospitals.

The three groups represented more than 200 children’s hospitals and over 270,000 physicians.

‘It’s not what you read. It’s what is being omitted’: Steve Crowder EXPOSES Dem’s hemorrhaging black vote

0

CNN finally acknowledged the declining number of black voters supporting Democrats. However, according to Steven Crowder, CNN and other news outlets neglected to tell their viewers how the downward trend in black voters has been apparent since 2008.

“It’s not what you read. It’s what is being omitted,” Crowder explained. Although CNN reported on the drop, its report only went back to 2018. Crowder’s data shows Democrats have been hemorrhaging black voters. Watch the video for the breakdown.

Later in Tuesday’s episode of “Louder with Crowder,” the guys covered the latest controversy surrounding artist Kanye West and conservative commentator Candace Owens for wearing “White Lives Matter” t-shirts to a fashion show. Many on the left viewed the political fashion statement as “dangerous,” but Crowder questioned what exactly is dangerous about two black people expressing respect for white people. Video below.

Self-described ‘journalist’ Aaron Rupar claims that Satan would receive ‘at least 45 percent of the vote’ if he ran as a GOP candidate in a red state

0

Self-described “journalist” Aaron Rupar tweeted on Tuesday that the devil could seek office as a GOP candidate in a red state and secure 45% of the vote at a minimum.

Rupar wrote, “the sad reality is that Satan himself could run as a Republican in a red state and be guaranteed to get at least 45 percent of the vote.”

Chris Tomlinson of Breibart fired back in response to Rupar’s post, tweeting, “If Satan ran he’d get all the Democrat votes.”

Five Times August, which is the name of singer/songwriter Brad Skistimas’ solo act, responded to Rupar by writing, “The sad reality is that Satan himself is already running the country and people like you are too blind to see it.”

Rupar replied, “get a grip.”

Leftists openly promote and even celebrate abortion and LGBTQ ideology.

Some Democrats described it as a “dark day” for the nation earlier this year when the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade and returned to states the authority to determine how to handle the issue of abortion and whether to ban the practice.

Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a tweet on Monday that she “will fight like hell to defend access to abortion in Michigan.”

Last week, the left-wing Women’s March movement noted that it is not only pro-choice, but also “proudly, unapologetically pro-abortion.”

Some Democrats have expressed support for Drag Queen Story Hour, which typically involves cross dressers reading books to children.

“Drag storytellers, and the libraries and schools that support them, are advancing a love of diversity, personal expression, and literacy that is core to what our city embraces,” Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement in June.

“I had the honor of assisting with a Drag Queen Story Hour in New York in April,” Democratic Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney of New York tweeted in June.

‘Slow is smooth, smooth is fast’: Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard takes aim in firearm video

0

One former Democratic politician has taken to social media to show off her marksmanship skills.

Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) posted a nearly 40-second video to her Twitter and Instagram accounts, which shows her participating in various firearm drills and reloading as necessary as she tackles an obstacle course associated with the Tactical Games.

“Slow is smooth, smooth is fast,” Gabbard wrote. “Dusting off the cobwebs and gaining new skills. Thanks to The Tactical Games for an incredible day of training.”

The Tactical Games is an organization which claims to offer “a venue for all shooters and athletes to compete against the best in the world to find weaknesses and test gear in the most stressful environment a competition can offer.”

In the video, Gabbard can be seen negotiating barriers and other impediments as she fires at specific targets. Wearing mainly black workout gear and ear muffs, she loads ammunition and employs different firearms at various times, though it is unclear whether she chose to use different guns or whether game rules required them.

“Nice work,” a man on the video tells her at the close.

Though the video has garnered a lot of positive responses, some on social media have criticized it since Gabbard, who once proclaimed to “support our Second Amendment rights,” still advocated for significant restrictions while she was in Congress. For example, she professed to support so-called common sense gun control laws, including a ban on assault weapons, modern sport rifles, standard capacity magazines, comprehensive background checks, and closing the “gun-show loophole.”

“So do you think just you should be allowed to have these or have you gotten around to reading the second amendment yet?” quipped Libertarian Party NH.

“Oh, today you like guns?” another popular response asked.

Gabbard, 41, served in Congress from 2013 until 2021. She also ran for president as a Democrat in 2020, but dropped out by mid-March. She is a Major in the Army National Guard and served two tours in the Middle East.

Gabbard recently made headlines when she figuratively took aim at Vice President Kamala Harris for allowing so many illegal immigrants to breach the U.S. southern border.

“Kamala Harris’ statement that ‘we have a secure border’ is further evidence that she’s either completely disconnected from reality or she’s blatantly lying,” Gabbard tweeted on September 15. “Either way, she has no business being a heartbeat away from the presidency.”

Elon Musk vs. Twitter drama finally ends with agreement to buy social media company for original price

0

Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s $44 billion deal to buy Twitter is back on after the multi-billionaire offered to close the deal, which would put an end to pending litigation and a dramatic back-and-forth with the social media company.

Musk made his proposal in a letter to Twitter that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday and first reported by Bloomberg. Twitter issued a statement saying the company has agreed sell at Musk’s original asking price of $54.20 per share.

“We received the letter from the Musk parties which they have filed with the SEC. The intention of the Company is to close the transaction at $54.20 per share,” Twitter said.

Musk’s attorneys wrote that deal will close pending a Delaware judge’s agreement to stay Twitter’s pending lawsuit against Musk and the ability of Musk to secure financing.

“The Musk Parties provide this notice without admission of liability and without waiver of or prejudice to any of their rights, including their right to assert the defenses and counterclaims pending in the Action, including in the event the Action is not stayed, Twitter fails or refuses to comply with its obligations under the April 25, 2022 Merger Agreement or if the transaction contemplated thereby otherwise fails to close,” the letter said.

The letter brings an end to the drama over Musk’s attempt to acquire Twitter. The billionaire businessman purchased a 9.6% stake in the company before rejecting a seat on Twitter’s board and threatening a hostile takeover. He offered to buy out Twitter for $44 billion in April but then tried to back out of the deal in July by claiming that Twitter had made false claims about how many fake or bot accounts are on its platform. After Twitter sued Musk to make him follow through with the agreement, he added claims from a whistleblower that Twitter deceived regulators about “extreme, egregious deficiencies” in combating hackers and spam to his complaint.

Outside observers had predicted that Musk’s effort to back out of the deal was likely to fail. Some analysts suggested that he was trying to negotiate a lower sale price from Twitter.

“Musk proceeding with Twitter deal at $54.30. Writing was on the wall he could not win in Delaware and this saves both sides a long and ugly court battle ahead,” said Wall Street tech analyst Daniel Ives.

Musk was scheduled to be deposed in the Delaware Chancery Court on Thursday and Friday.

Twitter shares surged as much as 18% on the news that he offered to complete the deal, according to Deadline.

Pro-abortion medical professionals urge FDA to approve abortion pill for miscarriage management

0

On Tuesday, pro-abortion medical professionals and advocates petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to push the pharmaceutical company that manufacturers mifepristone, an abortion pill, to seek approval for miscarriage management.

Danco Laboratories, one of two manufacturers that produce mifepristone, currently only has approval by the FDA for the pill to be used for terminating early pregnancies.

Mifepristone for medical abortions

Mifepristone is a progesterone blocker that is used in combination with misoprostol to induce an abortion through 70-days gestation.

When prescribed, the patient first takes mifepristone which “stops the pregnancy from growing,” according to a Planned Parenthood blog.

The pill blocks progesterone, a necessary pregnancy hormone. The drug causes the death of the developing baby by forcing the uterine lining to break down.

Next, the patient takes misoprostol which, within 1-4 hours, causes the uterus to contract and expel the aborted baby.

The risks of taking the abortion pill – often prescribed for at-home use – include infection, blood clots, and heavy bleeding.

Medical management of early pregnancy loss

For miscarriage management, patients are also prescribed mifepristone in combination with misoprostol. However, using just misoprostol for medical management is also common practice.

A 2018 study involving 300 women claimed that using both pills was a more effective alternative to using misoprostol alone, which it argued “commonly results in treatment failure” and the need for uterine aspiration procedures.

The study concluded that misoprostol, used by itself to manage early pregnancy loss, worked 67.1% of the time. Alternatively, the analysis found that the combination of mifepristone and misoprostol was 83.8% effective.

The push for additional approval

The petition to the FDA was submitted by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and signed by 48 other groups, including the American Medical Association and the American Civil Liberties Union.

The medical professionals argued that mifepristone is more effective in combination with misoprostol for miscarriage management.

“It is a safe and essential part of the most effective regimen for miscarriage management,” said the ACOG.

Danco Laboratories stated that it has no plans to submit for additional approval, but it is working with the FDA on changes to where patients can get the progesterone blocker.

“At this time, we are not planning to submit (an application) for miscarriage management, but may reconsider in the future,” said a spokesperson for Danco.

The FDA stated that it is currently reviewing the petition to invite the pharmaceutical company to submit a Supplemental New Drug Application.
