The Callous COVID Cruelty of Our Ruling Class

As Joe Biden abandons a key campaign promise on reopening schools and contemplates a travel ban to Florida, the inhumanity of COVID “mitigation” efforts is laid bare.
(via @julie_kelly2)…
“Biden and the Democrats, obviously, are not following the science, they’re following the money—the taxpayer-funded gravy train filled with roughly $170B earmarked for public schools and colleges in Biden’s coronavirus “rescue” package;
—that bonanza is in addition to the $114 billion already dedicated to schools in the last two COVID “relief” giveaways.
The WH can’t explain where the money will go except to say it will be spent on ventilation systems and PPE for teachers because it would be unseemly to admit a few hundred billion in tax dollars is just a kickback to one of the Democrat Party’s most dedicated constituent groups.
Of course, Biden is only partially to blame for continued school shutdowns. Blue-state governors refuse to stop the suffering themselves. One researcher found that of the 11 states where fewer than 10% of students have access to full in-person learning, 10 are led by Democrats.
Conversely, states with at least 70% full in-school learning all are led by Republicans.

CA Gov Gavin Newsom, whose state has roughly 5% of its schools fully open, can’t even figure out how to get the most at-risk children, including foster care and homeless kids, back to class.
Nonetheless, Newsom bragged this week about how he worked “late into the night” to develop a back-to-school plan that appears to be going nowhere.

Further, Newsom’s plan does nothing to get middle school or high schoolers back to normal.
California is only inching its way back to resuming high school sports, which have been suspended for almost a year.

Lost scholarships, lost opportunities to create lifelong friendships, lost lessons on teamwork and excellence, never to be regained. Yet no one seems to care.
‘Suicides among teen athletes have rocked several youth programs since the pandemic began in March, leaving parents and coaches scrambling—often from a distance—to help grieving kids in hopes of preventing more tragedies,’ the Washington Post reported in December.”

.@JoeBiden’s sad excuse for a spokesman, ⁦@tducklo46,⁩ has been suspended without pay for threatening to “destroy” a Politico journalist for reporting about his relationship. #BidensUnity #FreedomOfThePress…
A suspension, JoeBiden? Really? Golow and @neeratanden have much in common.

Joe’s representatives are bullies & thugs. But this is no surprise: that’s who they are at their core & that’s the people they support - as they stand atop their moral molehills sneering like Psaki
What a scumbucket.

“Ducklo reportedly tried to kill a story, which has since become public, about his relationship with Axios reporter Alexi McCammond, who used to cover Biden’s campaign.

The issue with @neeratanden was never her tweets. It's her character
Any Democrat who calls Susan Collins, the most centrist Republican in the Senate, "the worst," is not a person capable of following Biden's call to unity and civility.
And Tanden's problems go deeper than just the fact that she spent the last several years starting Twitter flame-wars in a manner that could be deemed unprofessional.

What Happened to Officer Brian Sicknick? via @julie_kelly2…
“Investigators are struggling to build a federal murder case regarding fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death,” CNN disclosed last week.
“Authorities have reviewed video and photographs that show Sicknick engaging with rioters amid the siege but have yet to identify a moment in which he suffered his fatal injuries.”

We must never surrender to the New Normal…
The ‘dream of going back to normal’ is a ‘huge distraction’, says a writer for the Guardian. The inescapable Devi Sridhar, the public-health academic whose voice of doom is enthusiastically coveted by the media, speaks to us as if we are patients on a therapist’s couch-
– ‘it is perfectly normal to grieve for our lost normality, but denial needs to be followed by acceptance’, she has counselled.

No, We Don’t Need a ‘Reality-Czar’: Let Truth and Falsehood Grapple

“Truth…needs no policies or stratagems…to make her victorious.”… via @feeonline
The Times, the Biden campaign, the Democrat leadership, and others on board with the idea have come nowhere close to pursuing “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
Yet despite a history of disseminating misinformation, clear biases, and suppression of those with different views, they would select the arbiters of Orwellian truth.

So who could be trusted as the reality czar? No one.
