1. SCOOP: Biden Admin is not done putting members of U.S. armed services at risk, mandating U.S. Marines receive first dose vaccinations before WTI (Weapons Tactics Instructions) in a week, ignoring apps for exemptions that include religious and history of Myocarditis.

2. Further, the second dose will be administered during WTI, in a remote location with only field medic attention available to them.

Again, this is ordered for those who have known medical conditions that were considered viable causes for exemptions only a week ago.
These are all people who had no problem getting vaccinated for scores of other diseases.

They were told they would have the ability to obtain waivers and are now facing the choice between risk to personal harm and/or violation of conscience, or professional ruination.
Reading the documents provided to us (of course it's documented), service members who refuse to take the vaccination will be "dealt with via administrative or disciplinary measures, i.e., AdSep, NJP or court-martial."

There is not enough time for waivers to be issued.
Again, the main issue here, which is expected given how these things play out in real life, is that the Biden Admin is claiming there is an accommodation for religious exemption and exemption for certain medical conditions, but in reality is not afforded to them.
. @USMC leadership is instructing those who object to vaccination to receive "professional medical advice" that regardless will preach "safety and effectiveness".

If they object, they will be court-martialed.

The exemption paperwork is purely CYA. There's no time for processing
It's a Catch 22. If you have a religious exemption, then DoD tells them to apply for it, claims they were allowed.

Except, they won't actually have time for the "Chaplain Interview Checklist" (sound familiar @DeptofDefense?) because they just got orders and the deadline is here.
And honestly, this is what many of them are concerned about. Not for themselves, but for their Battles who they know are seeking waivers for legitimate conditions linked to Pfizer.

They are NOT "anti-vaccine".
For those seeking religious exemptions, there is no time for them to get a "Chaplain Interview Checklist" before the "Religious Accommodation Review Board".

Again, sound familiar @DeptofDefense?

These service members have been scammed. I thought we had enough of that, this week
“And the worse part is, you dont get the vaccine, you don’t go on exercises, you get no job training, you’re kicked out.”

I realize most Americans have never served, don’t understand what it means to be in this situation.

We lie to them about wars. We lie to them about waivers.
I'd love for @DeptofDefense to provide some concrete data on this, which is trustworthy and verifiable, because...

We're told by members that leadership claims their ranks are 70+ percent vaccinated.

However, we've measured them around the 30s for months. Remarkably stable.

I've seen a lot of stupid political commentary over the years. But what I'm reading about California is in the running for the dumbest.

Larry Elder didn't "lose". He outperformed every major poll that already had him in the lead if "Yes" won.

But "Yes" had to win.

On that...
Newsom survived a recall in a very blue state. When his campaign woke up and realized it was closer than expected, they used their significant monetary advantage and compliant media to scare voters.

And still lose counties he previously won and which voted for Joe Biden.

Republicans have been playing a game of defense in California for many years, and have surrounded Orange County, San Diego/SoCal.

Defense is a losing strategy.

Look at the counties in CA-16.

Look at Fresno, Merced, etc.

This fight really underscored why boxing has suffered for years, and hasn't reclaimed the prestige or interest it had for so many years.

Evander Holyfield was a true warrior in his time. But he's way past his prime, and they keep reaching back to compensate for a shallow bench.
Think Vitor Belfort could've lasted a single round with this Evander Holyfield — or, this Riddick Bowe for that matter?

This is when boxing was still great. Before they needed to reach back to out-of-prime former champs to cover their shallow bench.
If you watched that video — particularly the punishment Evander Holyfield took from Riddick Bowe in Round 1, and survived — then you know there's no chance Vitor Belfort could survive even early rounds with either of those two men.

I wouldn't be proud over elder abuse.

A realistic electorate is “laughably slanted”, claims Phil Bump at WaPo.

Look at the electorates in 2016 and 2020. Did the real partisan composition “slant” more closely to weights used by @Rasmussen_Poll or his own outfit’s poll?

I can save you time if you’d like.

But this is how actual pollsters know Phil Bump and others like him are total frauds, not experts.

He clearly knows nothing about how weights work.

Weights for party composition wouldn’t impact the actual percentage of Ds the claim @Rasmussen_Poll found agreed with Sen. Graham.
If the weight for party was adjusted, the percentage of Ds @Rasmussen_Poll found would agreed with Graham would stay the same, while the overall “total” nationally, would decline.

Meaning, everyone jackass, not just Democrats.

CNN is a complete total joke and other pollsters need to speak up more because this garbage really hurts the industry.

We heard similar whitewashing after they bombed 2016, then they ignored how badly they performed in 2018, and crashed and burned in 2020.

No different.
The universe of polling — to include those who have proven they can poll an election correctly — is ranging from 39% to 45% approve.

52% is not a simple difference of opinion. It's blatant propaganda OR gross incompetence.

More must be willing to call it out when it happens.
Last time we had a good debate re: polling over long durations — i.e. 14-30 days vs. 3-7 days — it was the 2016 Indiana primary.

IPFW/Mike Downs Center had Ted Cruz leading Donald Trump by 16 points.

On Planet Earth, Trump won by nearly 20 points, carrying all but 5 counties.

These are the Change of Address (CoA) flags that I told everyone about before and after the 2020 election, which @PolitiFact lied about fake fact-checking me by twisting my words & meaning.

It is REAL. It does happen. In California, voter rolls are VERY dirty.

Read this thread.
Three screenshots from the voter file.

Notice there are 20,632,867 voter records in California when excluding change of address (CoA) flags, or "movers", and deceased.

There are 20,653,779 when excluding ONLY movers.

There are 23,121,820 when including BOTH deceased & MOVERS.
Do you all understand what I'm showing you in the above tweet, and thread in general?

Do you NOW understand how badly you've been lied to about the potential for mass illegal ballots when sent unsolicited?

Media excuses about "similar names and addresses" are total nonsense.

AP polling is about as accurate as it was before 2020, and as is their fact-checking.

Curious, what's 2020 vote history in this poll?

Oh huh.

Vaccine mandates are NOT popular, DEF NOT w/ workers. "Passports" are pretty close.

It collapses on specifics. application.marketsight.com/app/ItemView.a…
Simply put, when you ask whether they support/oppose "Requiring everyone to carry a 'vaccine passport' before they are allowed to participate in pre-pandemic activities," it's basically even.

But when you ask specifics about requiring vaccines for those activities, it is NOT.
Among the LEAST popular was allowing employers to mandate employees get the vaccine. 38% supported that, while 57.2% opposed it, including 41.3% who "strongly" opposed it.

Workers were SIGNIFICANTLY less likely to support it. Only $200k and postgrads supported the mandate.
