1 out of 500

Where do we stand compared to a year ago? We were looking at a death rate of about 6% compared to about 1.8% now. But the incredible number of cases means that 1/10 Americans have had an active case that we know of, with almost 1 out of every 500 Americans dying from the disease.

In other news: Jennifer Granholm, during a press conference yesterday about the hack of the Colonial Pipeline, said, "We have doubled down on ensuring that there's an ability to truck oil in — gas in. But it's — the pipe is the best way to go. And so that's why, hopefully, this company, Colonial, will, in fact, be able to restore operations by the end of the week as they have said."

Oh, pipe is the best way to go, huh? Safer, more secure, more efficient, less risk of accidents? Then maybe this administration shouldn't be canceling pipeline projects!

Rand Paul Goes Full SAVAGE Against Fauci AGAIN in Senate Hearing


Just based on the video, the difference of opinion seems to be over definitions.  According to Rand Paul in the video, we reportedly funded "gain of function" research in the U.S., and one of the researchers collaborated with the Wuhan Virology lab.

I have been disappointed in some of the behavior in these videos.  It seems like Senators or Congresspersons will use the witnesses as punching bags and it has nothing to do with finding out information.

Fwd: J&J blood clot in Utah

The first case of a rare blood-clotting condition thought to be linked to the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has been diagnosed in Utah.

A male patient was recently diagnosed with vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, also known as VITT, at the University of Utah Hospital, U. health officials said in a Wednesday news release.

The patient, who is under the age of 50, was treated and is now recovering at home, according to Dr. Yazan Abou-Ismail, an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology at the University of Utah.

"He continues to do well and feel well," Abou-Ismail said at a Wednesday news conference about the case.

The blood clot condition led to a nationwide pause on administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine last month after six cases were reported among over 6 million people who received the vaccine. The pause was lifted on April 23 after federal regulators determined the vaccine's continued use is safe.

President Biden has proposed spending trillions, but does it have a chance in passing?

President Biden's proposals have been met with near-universal hostility by Republicans, who remain concerned about spending so much money so quickly.

Democrats and progressives remain pleased with the proposal for the most part. A number of moderate Democrats will ultimately decide whether or not these plans pass, however.

Democrats could pass this on their own, but it would require every single Democratic senator to support the measures.

If any Democrat in the Senate says no, it would then require some Republicans to get on board.

Already some moderates, like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), has expressed being "uncomfortable" with so much spending.

Negotiations will continue over the proposals for the next several weeks.

A final vote is likely still months away.

Spending like there is no tomorrow

A hundred million Americans have been vaccinated. The problem no longer is producing and distributing enough vaccines for the public but finding enough people who want to get them.

Whereas FDR confronted a 25 percent unemployment rate during the Great Depression, Joe Biden inherited an economy on the verge of takeoff.

GDP grew by 1.6 percent in the first quarter, or at a 6.4 annual rate. Some projections have GDP this year growing at the fastest clip since 1951. Consumer spending is expected to be the highest on record.

Census result modified by white house?

More than a dozen House Republicans Friday are questioning Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo on whether there "was any political interference" in the final census numbers used to decide how many House members each state will get for the coming decade. 

"The apportionment population results released by the Census Bureau are strikingly different from the population evaluation estimates released just months ago on December 22, 2020," the GOP members wrote. "Remarkably, the differences benefit traditionally blue states – which gained population compared to the estimates – over red states which tended to lose population compared to the estimates."

The GOP group asks Raimondo for a trove of documents, including communications between the Census Bureau and the White House, and whether the counting of illegal aliens in the congressional apportionment may have had an effect on the final result
