Providence Hospital System has just dropped a bombshell on its employees in a move that can only be described as Orwellian.
The healthcare giant announced on its InOurCircle app—a platform designed for employees to “stay up-to-date on company news”—that all workers (including those who are vaccinated and boosted by previous shots) are now required to receive the latest COVID-19 vaccine. And get this: failure to comply could result in unpaid leave or even job termination!
According to the announcement, all employees are now required to receive the latest COVID-19 vaccine, which was recently granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The updated mRNA vaccines were approved on Tuesday, September 12 and are expected to be available soon.
“PROVIDENCE FAMILY OF ORGANIZATIONS – We’ve all heard that cases of COVID-19 are on the rise and the latest updates to COVID-19 vaccines are proving effective at preventing serious illness from the latest strains. We updated our COVID-19 Vaccination Policy and caregivers need to receive the most up-to-date COVID-19 vaccine available,” according to the post obtained by X user Chester Tam.
Webmaster addition: And when people start dying from this latest shot, we'll be told that nobody forced them to take the shot!
Seattle police union rank-and-file leaders are under investigation after an officer was heard on his body camera footage laughing and joking about a woman fatally struck by a separate patrol cruiser earlier this year. The officer who was recorded has stated that he was mocking the callousness of those who would litigate “a tragedy.”
When Utah’s Republican attorney general Sean Reyes was spotted in 2022 at the World Cup in Qatar, a tiny oil-rich kingdom in the Middle East best known for its human rights abuses and financing of terrorism, his team gave an odd explanation. Qatar did pay for his trip, but it provided the funds through an American nonprofit organization: the Attorney General Alliance.
Attorneys working with one of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agent whistleblowers in the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden released their client’s notes in response to an FBI agent’s testimony casting doubt on a key claim.
The U.S. Supreme Court is "extremist" for not allowing various government officials to simply overturn the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment and ban guns, or carrying guns, whenever they want.
That is the verdict from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is most popularly known for falsely claiming for years to be Native American, when she isn't.
According to a report at Breitbart, her comments arose because of an attempt by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Grisham to cancel the state's gun laws and ban carrying a weapon in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.
Many experts have described Grisham's attempted action as simply unconstitutional and even the state's attorney general announced that office would not defend Grisham's political move.
Dove is now partnering in a “fat liberation” campaign with a Black Lives Matter Activist accused of wrecking a white female student’s life by accusing her of making threatening remarks — later admitting she may not have heard the remarks at all, according to a new report.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed both political parties over U.S. government spending in an interview this week, saying that both parties are responsible for inflation rates that have harmed consumers in recent years.
NSC Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby refused to answer questions on Wednesday about multiple false claims that President Joe Biden has made in recent days that a reporter noted were “easily debunked.”
I am on the road and consequently have heard more than usual radio and television. Endless noise about the Biden Impeachment minutiae fills the airwaves.
This is a disaster for America. Yes, it is bad that President Biden appears to have allowed the use of his Vice-Presidential status to enrich his family. The Clinton stories were bad too. But this type of corruption will not destroy the country.
Furthermore, there can be no doubt that President Biden has broken his Presidential Oath and stopped enforcement of immigration legislation. Quibbling about his financial activities will go on forever.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre became irritated on Wednesday during a press briefing when a reporter pressed her on whether President Joe Biden lied to the public about his son’s foreign business dealings.
California lawmakers sent a high-profile bill to classify child sex trafficking as a serious felony to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk on Wednesday after the legislature unanimously approved the once-divisive measure.
The U.S. Air Force has clearly expressed its desire for a futuristic fleet of drone “wingmen” considered vital to countering Russia and China, defense company executives said.
The exchange of info between buyer and builder for the collaborative combat aircraft endeavor, or CCA, has so far been “crystal clear,” according to David Alexander, the president of General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, the maker of the Gray Eagle and Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles, among others.
“That’s helpful, especially for companies that want to invest and lean forward and see how we can get speed,” Alexander said Sept. 11 at the Air, Space and Cyber Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. “I really appreciate the clarity on that.”
The Air Force in the coming years wants to pair pilots with CCAs to afford them greater flexibility and firepower. The uncrewed aircraft could carry out a variety of missions: conducting reconnaissance and gathering intelligence; jamming signals and serving as decoys; and striking targets with their own missiles. Service officials have also said CCAs could range in cost and complexity, with some being expensive and precious while others could be easily traded in combat.
Russian and Chinese forces are growing bolder in their aerial intercepts of U.S. aircraft, in part because they’re no longer intimidated by America’s aging air fleet, a top U.S. Air Force general says.
“When Russia or China looked at the U.S. Air Force 30 years ago before [and] after Desert Storm, it was just not something you wanted to get near. It was not remotely a capability you wanted to challenge at all,” Gen. Mark Kelly, Air Combat Command chief, told reporters Tuesday.
Not only is the U.S. fighter force getting smaller and older, China and Russia have also been heavily investing in their fleets, Kelly said at the Air & Space Forces Association’s annual Air, Space & Cyber conference outside Washington, D.C.
“Yesterday” is when Air Combat Command needs the service’s planned new aircraft, such as the E-7 Wedgetail and the Next Generation Air Dominance, or NGAD, fighter jet, Kelly said.
Adversaries want to test how far away they can detect U.S. fighter jets and “want a batting practice” by getting closer and closer to F-22s, F-35s, F-16s, and other aircraft, Kelly said.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation and prosecution of CEFC China Energy Co. boss and Biden family associate Patrick Ho displayed “irregularities,” including concealing known connections between the Chinese Communist Party-linked entity and the Bidens, and communication between Hunter Biden and the FBI agents involved in Ho’s case, according to a memo by the Heritage Foundation Oversight Project.
Ho, infamously referred to as “the fucking spy chief of China” by Hunter Biden, was arrested in November, 2017, and convicted in December, 2018, in the Southern District of New York and sentenced to 3 years in prison for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering. Ho’s first phone call upon his arrest was to Hunter Biden, who was allegedly providing legal services to him at the time.
Now, a memo by the Heritage Foundation obtained exclusively by Breitbart News alleges that since Ho’s conviction, “significant evidence has emerged identifying concerning irregularities with the DOJ investigation and prosecution,” including that “DOJ was aware of connections between the Biden family and CEFC at least as early as 2017 and that they acted to conceal this information from the public,” as well as “contacts between Hunter Biden and FBI agents related to Ho’s arrest,” and “a leak of investigatory information in the Ho case.”
Oil prices jumped on Thursday, with U.S. crude topping $90 a barrel, as expectations of a tighter supply grew.
West Texas Intermediate crude (WTI) gained 1.6% to reach a high of $90.04 per barrel, touching its highest level since November 2022. Brent crude was up 1.5%, at $93.23, reaching a 10-month high. WTI crude last traded at $89.91 a barrel.
Webmaster addition: So, Biden shuts down the Keystone XL Pipeline, cancels the Alaska drilling leases, and all but empties the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Sanctions and US policy towards Israel have alienated foreign nations whose oil the US depended on. Add to that natural disasters like the floods in Libya, and it's no sur[rise energy costs are going through the roof!
The Russian Foreign Ministry has announced the expulsion of two American diplomats, who were previously accused of recruiting a Russian national as a confidential informant.
US Ambassador Lynne Tracy was summoned on Thursday to be issued with a 'demarche' note, a form of diplomatic protest, regarding David Bernstein and Jeffery Sillin, the Russian diplomatic department has announced.
Moscow declared the activities of the embassy employees incompatible with their status. They have seven days to leave the country, it said.
In late August, the Russian security service FSB identified the two Americans as persons of interest in an investigation. They are suspected of recruiting Russian citizen Robert Shonov as a confidential informant.
Western officials have overestimated the willingness of neutral nations to join anti-Russia policies in support of Ukraine, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“It’s clear that the West overall has been surprised by the pretty widespread reluctance by many of the countries in the so-called Global South… to come on board,” Jan Techau of the consulting firm Eurasia Group told the newspaper, as quoted on Thursday.
He cited “animosity toward the US and Europe” in some parts of the world and the desire of rising powers, such as Brazil and South Africa, to “assert their independence”, the article said.
The WSJ detailed purported successes and failures of Western diplomacy to rally the support of neutral nations for what it called “a fair peace settlement for Ukraine” ahead of next week’s gathering of world leaders at the UN General Assembly.
Speaking to host Russell Brand, leftist Grayzone editor-in-chief Max Blumenthal pointed out that US Secretary of State Tony Blinken stands to “make a lot of money off this war“ through his company WestExec . Ukraine has been “drunk” off of “delusional fantasies out of Washington that they can somehow ‘win’,” Blumenthal said.
“Tony Blinken was recently in Kiev for a more extended period than usual, probably to put the idea of negotiations on the table,” Blumenthal claimed. “This is because of the colossal failure of the Ukrainian counteroffensive, which the US has been heavily involved in.”
The Gateway Pundit is one of the only media in the US reporting about the catastrophic Meat Grinder the US and UK pushed Ukraine into, which has cost approx. 72,000 Ukrainian casualties since June, according to Russian estimates. Blinken visited Kiev Sept. 6, where he met with Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and President Volodymyr Zelensky, promising another $1 billion in US aid. US funds for Ukraine stand at $110.97 billion, Fox News reported on Tuesday.
“They failed to capture any real territory. They were supposed to cut off the land bridge between Russia and Crimea, which is not going to happen,” Blumenthal said. “Soon there’s going to be rain in the eastern plains of the Donbass region, and it’s going to be impossible to get armor through there.”
A creep pushing a toddler in a stroller has been terrorizing women on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for months – body-checking them into walls and spitting in their faces in the violent, unprovoked attacks.
At least five women have been targeted in the tony neighborhood since June, and as recently as Saturday, by the brute, who remains on the lam.
They include Veronica Poloneitchik, who recalled being shoved to the ground on East 82nd Street and Second Avenue on June 26 – after admiring the man and young child on the street.
“As a woman, you always pay attention to babies. I was looking at the baby in the stroller and the guy that was pushing the stroller literally jumped and slammed me into the wall with his hip and shoulder,” she told The Post.
Poloneitchik, who’s lived on the Upper East Side for 13 years, said she yelled after the man and was met with a sinister and “dark smile.”
American liberals need to accept that single-parent families are more likely to raise children in poverty, an influential New York Times columnist has argued.
Nick Kristof said the fact was taboo among progressives, who worried that they would be labelled racist for admitting it.
Black families are statistically more likely than white, Hispanic or Asian to be single-parent: less than half of black children were living with two married parents in 2020, according to the latest census.
Only 38 percent of black children live with married parents.
And while 62 percent of white children live in low-poverty areas with fathers present in most homes, only 4 percent of black children do.
The Biden administration has skewered New York City for having “no exit strategy” for asylum seekers in shelters — as the feds themselves appear to lack any substantial plan to help US cities with the flood of migrants from the borders.
The stunning potshot at New York’s handling of more than 100,000 migrants — which City Hall called “a slap in the face” — leaked out Wednesday from an unreleased report by an assessment team at the Department of Homeland Security.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mRNA from COVID-19 vaccines is “broken down within a few days after vaccination and doesn’t last long in the body”—a position it has adhered to since the pandemic's beginning, despite research suggesting otherwise (pdf). The CDC refers to mRNA as “messenger RNA,” whereas regulatory documents and Pfizer refer to the mRNA in COVID-19 vaccines as “modified RNA.”
Yet a new study published on Aug. 31 in Proteomics Clinical Applications found spike protein in the biological fluids of people who received an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine six months after vaccination, suggesting mRNA may be integrated or retranscribed in some cells.
The study group included 20 subjects who received two doses of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, 20 who were unvaccinated and tested negative for COVID-19 or antibodies indicating they had previously been infected, and a control group of 20 unvaccinated participants who tested positive for COVID-19.
The day the Bidens took over Paradigm Global Advisors was a memorable one.
In the late summer of 2006 Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Joe’s younger brother, James, purchased the firm. On their first day on the job, they showed up with Joe’s other son, Beau, and two large men and ordered the hedge fund’s chief of compliance to fire its president, according to a Paradigm executive who was present.
After the firing, the two large men escorted the fund’s president out of the firm’s midtown Manhattan office, and James Biden laid out his vision for the fund’s future. “Don’t worry about investors,” he said, according to the executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing fear of retaliation. “We've got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”
At the time, the senator was just months away from both assuming the chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and launching his second presidential bid. According to the executive, James Biden made it clear he viewed the fund as a way to take money from rich foreigners who could not legally give money to his older brother or his campaign account. “We've got investors lined up in a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company,” the executive remembers James Biden saying.
At this, the executive recalled, Beau Biden, who was then running for attorney general of Delaware, turned bright red. He told his uncle, “This can never leave this room, and if you ever say it again, I will have nothing to do with this.”
