The coronavirus continues to create all manner of woes in the United States as the public grapples with mixed messages and confusion over what is healthy and what is not at this difficult time.
“The Biden administration will tell you that everyone likes the idea of a vaccine warrant. The public generally supports the idea, and it will make everyone healthier. The truth, however, playing out across the country, is that President Biden’s vaccine tenure is wreaking havoc and destruction among the public workforce from the shores of Maine to the streets of the city of Seattle. Police departments, fire departments and public school teachers are on the verge of massive layoffs and larger than usual numbers of employees leaving their jobs because of mandatory Covid vaccinations, ” writing Nate ashworth, founder and editor-in-chief of ElectionCentral.com.
He calls the situation a “man-made problem with life and death consequences”. The White House, he said, chose “to run public health like a political campaign,” citing particularly problematic situations in Seattle, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Mr Ashworth also cited the emotionally charged damage that followed.
“It is the law of unintended (or perhaps intended) consequences in action for President Bidenthe employer’s national vaccine mandate. Without accommodation for natural immunity and the difficulty in obtaining medical or religious exemption in most cases, many public servants feel betrayed by their municipal governments, ”said Mr. Ashworth.
An anonymous healthcare worker summed up the situation, according to Ashworth.
“In 2020 we were heroes, in 2021 we are called replaceable if we don’t comply,” the worker noted.
GOVERNOR WINNING THE PULITZER PRIZE?
“News: I’m quitting a job I love,” tweeted New York Times columnist Nicolas kristof Thursday, who has worked for the news agency for 37 years and now has 62.
Indeed, Mr Kristof has announced that he is seriously considering a candidacy for governor of Oregon, where he grew up on a cherry farm. The revelation brought immediate coverage from his own news organization, as well as the Washington Post, CNN, Politico, Fox News, The Hill and many more.
On Thursday, the New Democrat Hope filed an organizing statement for “Nick for Oregon” with the Oregon Secretary of State’s office, listing his profession as a freelance journalist, author and farmer.
Leaving the Times, however, was not easy. “I might be an idiot to leave,” he said in a statement.
“But you all know how much I love Oregon and how touched I was by the suffering of old friends there. So I reluctantly concluded that I should try not only to expose the problems, but also to see if I could solve them directly, ”he advised.
The price of gas is on the rise. Yes, we all know that. Car prices, however, are at an all time high, according to Kelley Blue Book.
“At $ 45,031, the average transaction price for new vehicles hit a record high in September 2021 for the sixth consecutive month,” the auto industry media outlet said in a statement on Thursday.
That’s a 12.1% jump from a year ago. And, oh yeah, if you want a Porsche, it’s going to cost you an average of $ 102,397, a jump from the $ 100,747 a year ago, Kelley Blue Book says. On the other end of the spectrum, a Kia now costs an average of $ 33,036, down from $ 31,892.
And about that gas – the national average is now $ 3.14 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.com, a very nimble consumer site. The lowest price per gallon is found in Oklahoma ($ 2.80) and the highest in California ($ 4.41).
And imagine. In April 2019, the average price of gasoline hit a two-year low of $ 1.74 – in the good old days of the Trump administration.
Fox News Media expands Fox News Books, a creative foray into the publishing world launched almost a year ago that has produced two national bestsellers written by hosts Shannon Bream and Pete hegseth. The Network’s Editorial Footprint has now signed a new deal with HarperCollins to publish six new headlines, intended to strengthen Fox News’ bond with its loyal following.
The focus will be on “personality-focused headlines as well as creative concepts surrounding key themes important to Fox News Media audiences”. It is indeed a wise concept.
“Over the past 25 years, we have developed a unique connection with our audience and look forward to delivering more content than they desire from their favorite Fox News personalities,” said the CEO of Fox News Media. Suzanne scott noted.
Look for “All American Christmas,” written by the weekend co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy and her husband, Sean duffy, also a network contributor.
They have a family of 11; the book will also feature treasured vacation memories from such Fox News regulars as Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeade, Dana Perino, Charles Payne and much more.
