Bizarre – Congressional Doctor orders House not Senate to wear masks

 

In a bizarre twist of the infamous wearing “mask or no mask” put down one Dr. Brian Monahan as the latest actor in this congressional play. He hails from the Office of the Attending Physician. We are familiar no doubt with the Doctor who looks after the President, but this fine fellow takes care of the congressional staff.

Dr. Brian Monahan

The fellow who apparently followed Nancy Pelosi’s direction and ordered the House members to wear masks. The Senate? Not so much. What was this decision based on? Apparently it included a nonsensical study done in India. Apparently the CDC decided to use it as well. So it appears at least one of the studies the CDC used to justify their guidance was rejected by a peer review and was based on a vaccine not even used in the United States. Brilliant stuff.

But first:

Try and follow this nonsense.

The Office of the Attending Physician issued late night guidance for each chamber Tuesday, but with a mandate for the House and a softer recommendation in the Senate, confusion still reigns. Partisan fights over masks erupted in the House earlier this year and could make a comeback if a fresh mask mandate is imposed.

“For all House Office Buildings, the Hall of the House, and House Committee Meetings, wearing of a well-fitted, medical grade, filtration face mask is required when an individual is in an interior space and other individuals are present. To be clear, for meetings in an enclosed US House of Representatives controlled space, masks are REQUIRED,” reads the memo from the Office of the Attending Physician.

The Senate, with many fewer (and older) lawmakers who took Covid precautions more seriously from the outset, is left to self-regulate by the Capitol’s top doc.

Dr. Brian Monahan recommends that in the Senate, “all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space and other individuals are present.”

Ed: (Why a KN95 and not a N95 mask?)

What’s The Difference Between N95 and KN95 Masks …

In short, N95 masks are the US standards for respirator masks; KN95 masks are the Chinese standards for masks. Let’s buy our masks from China. They haven’t done enough damage yet.)

But I digress.

It is the same guidance as for the House, but recommended, not required.

“We’re going to speak without the masks, but wear the masks,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said, explaining his mask approach at a Tuesday press conference. “Right now, you have to do what you think is best. For myself, I’m going to put on a mask.”

And now this:..

Study Cited By CDC To Justify New Mask Guidance Rejected By Peer Review, Based On Vaccine Not Used In US

(Via Daily Caller) – At least one of the studies that was cited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to justify changing their guidance on masks was based on a vaccine that is not authorized for use in America and was rejected by a peer review.

The study in question from researchers in India claims to show that a COVID-19 Delta variant infection generates a higher viral load in comparison to other variants.

Despite no mention in the study of viral loads from the variant against unvaccinated individuals, the CDC cited it in yesterday’s updated brief as evidence that the Delta variant is transmissible from a vaccinated individual with a breakthrough infection.

“Studies from India with vaccines not authorized for use in the United States have noted relatively high viral loads and larger cluster sizes associated with infections with Delta, regardless of vaccination status,” the CDC said.

“These early data suggest that breakthrough Delta infections are transmissible,” the CDC’s brief goes on to say, even though the India study was conducted with a non-approved U.S. vaccine.

The report from the CDC also says that “unpublished” and “additional data collection” studies are pending that will help to “understand the level and duration of transmissibility from Delta vaccine breakthrough infections in the United States and other settings.”

Iowa Democrat Asks House to Overturn Election She Lost

 

Why have elections at all? Just have the the democrats in the House of Representatives declare the election results.

Nancy Pelosi

Will Nancy have any problem doing the deed and giving her the seat? These little known facts on what our out of control Congress can do. There were rumors she was going to do it. Well now it is official. meanwhile Trump plugs along with the courts regarding his election.

Here we go:

Democrat Rita Hart, who lost her Congressional election in Iowa’s Second District, is filing paperwork to have fellow partisans in the House of Representatives “review” and overturn her defeat.

Hart lost to Republican Mariennette Miller-Meeks in the initial vote tally, then lost the recount. Miller-Meeks’ victory was formally certified by the state, and the Hart campaign chose not to challenge the outcome through Iowa’s court system.

Instead, the defeated candidate was said to be strongly considering appealing to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives in order to uproot the voters’ decision and achieve “the result we need.” And that’s exactly what she’s doing.

Based on the rules and the law, Hart lost. She wants to sidestep the proper process, convince Democrats in Congress to count certain votes that she feels were wrongly excluded, and have herself declared the “real” winner — overruling voters and Iowa’s system.

It’s a brazen effort to steal an election. If she and her lawyers believed they have a strong case, they could have presented it to impartial arbiters through the state’s judicial system. They deliberately chose to eschew that option, however, relying on the bogus excuse that there wasn’t enough time.

Keep reading…

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

A day in the life of Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi

 

Just a couple of clips from our favorite savants heading up or trying to head up our government…. scary.

“I don’t care.”

 

 

Notes:

Another democratic “beauty” slurring and ranting. Nancy Pelosi snaps on CNN telling Dana Bash: I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care about POTUS’ plan to get America back to work again.

The fact she doesn’t care, was made clear when she returned on Sunday night to DC to stop the Senate to bring on the vote for the relief bill. She forgot there were a lot of people, constituents and possible voters that normally wouldn’t watch these negotiations because they would be at work.

Now they saw that how she single handedly stopped the aid to Americans, and tried to blackmail the Senate Republicans with almost 15 amendments, poisoned pills, that had NOTHING to do with the China Virus at all to be put into the relief bill. Things like parts of AOC’s new green deal, $35,000,000 for the JFK Center, bailing out the postal service, money for solar panels and more of this BS.

According to one of her cronies, she should do all it took to get these things into the bill, this was their chance Senator Rand Paul and several others were self quarantining at home and weren’t able to vote.

She showed the American people, very blatantly they don’t care about them at all. It’s all about power and setting up slush funds to circle the money right back in to their own, or their cronies accounts. She also had a 1440 page democratic relief bill with her when she arrived in DC.

It was her way or the highway, until she saw the polls tanking and the House only getting a 21% approval rate, while POTUS’ poll numbers were up, to almost 55%. So she tried to take credit for some of the work, like she/they always do when they have done nothing at all. I hope the voters will keep in mind, when voting, who went all the way for them and who didn’t care for them at all.

Here we have good old Joe at his best…… still alive and barely kicking.

 

Thats it folks!

 

 

Nancy Pelosi says she has to miss Saturday’s 49ers-Viking because of Trump

 

Anyone who happened upon Nancy Pelosi’s presser yesterday has learned that what was thought is now true. She has now succumbed to Trump derangement syndrome.

She supports Iran over the U.S regarding the taking out of one bad actor.

Impeachment? Now that is one big joke.

Most importantly she will miss the  Saturday’s 49ers-Viking. Saving us from Trump comes first. I give you the important point first.

 

 

She will clutch those impeachment documents and we will have to pry them from her cold dead hands.

 

The internet can be such a challenge for the old war horses now. Their previous positions so easily come back to life.

 

That’s it folks. The best I can muster on a crazy bizarro week.

For the best in news

 

Stranded Pelosi and all her junkets – wait, now CODELS!

 

Anyone happening to watch cable news yesterday was in for a real treat. Here-to-for “Junkets” now receiving the term CODEL in everyday parlance. That is the “tell” for this delightful story.

Within an hour of the take off of the latest Congressional junket, Trump pulled the plug. The bus, carrying the participants sans Nancy was loaded and ready to go. Now what to do with the loaded bus?

Apparently the Congressmen were in shock. In disbelief. The bus sat there.

According to Fox News reporter, Chad Pergram, furious phone calls are flying back and forth from The Hill to the State to the Pentagon and White House.

 

Clearly the Congressmen didn’t want to be seen dis-embarking, after much delay round and round in a circle the bus went. Peter Doocy from Fox made a gallant effort by running after the bus to catch the disembarkment.

 

 

 

How about a pic about the disembarkment of Nancy’s wardrobe?

 

 

 

Getting back to Nancy. Let’s take a look at her travel plans when she was head honcho way back.

 

She LOVES to fly on our dime and brings family along. For example Pelosi used the Air Force aircraft for a total of 85 trips, covering 206,264 miles, from March 2, 2009 through June 7, 2010. Wow. Take a look at all of the “incidentals” in keeping Nancy in style

 

Speaker Pelosi came under fire in 2007 for requesting a 42-seat Air Force carrier to ferry the Speaker and her staff back and forth between San Francisco, CA and Washington, DC. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was allowed access to a 12-seat commuter jet for security reasons after the events of 9/11.

“Taken together, these documents show that Speaker Pelosi treats the Air Force like her personal airline,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Not only does Speaker Pelosi issue unreasonable requests for military travel, but her office seems unconcerned about wasting taxpayer money with last minute cancellations and other demands.”

Watch Tom Fitton rip Pelosi (who was House Speaker back then) apart for her outrageous demands and traveling on taxpayer dime back in 2009:

 

 

 

“Purchases for one Pelosi-led CODEL on May 15-20, 2008 included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewar’s scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin,” Tom Fitton said.

“Speaker Pelosi used the Air Force aircraft for a total of 85 trips, covering 206,264 miles, from March 2, 2009 through June 7, 2010. Pelosi, her guests and Air Force personnel logged a total of 428.6 hours on these flights,” Mr. Fitton added.

The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), include internal DOD email correspondence detailing attempts by DOD staff to accommodate Pelosi’s numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft as well as the speaker’s last minute cancellations and changes. The following are a few highlights from the documents, which are linked in full below:

  • In response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one Defense Department official wrote, “Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi’s team] if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every weekend?…[T]here’s no need to block every weekend ‘just in case’…” The email also notes that Pelosi’s office had, “a history of canceling many of their past requests.”
  • One DOD official complained about the “hidden costs” associated with the speaker’s last minute changes and cancellations. “We have…folks prepping the jets and crews driving in (not a short drive for some), cooking meals and preflighting the jets etc.”
  • The documents include a discussion of House Ethics rules and Defense Department policies as they apply to the speaker’s requests for staff, spouses and extended family to accompany her on military aircraft. In May 2008, for example, Pelosi requested that her husband join her on a Congressional Delegation (CODEL) into Iraq. The DOD explained to Pelosi that the agency has a written policy prohibiting spouses from joining CODEL’s into combat zones.
  • Documents obtained from the U.S. Army include correspondence from Speaker Pelosi’s office requesting an Army escort and three military planes to transport Pelosi and other members of Congress to Cleveland, Ohio, for the funeral services of the late Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones. Pelosi noted in her letter of August 22, 2008, that such a request, labeled “Operation Tribute” was an “exception to standard policy.”
  • The documents also detail correspondence from intermediaries for Speaker Pelosi issuing demands for certain aircraft and expressing outrage when requested military planes were not available. “It is my understanding there are no G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable…The speaker will want to know where the planes are…” wrote Kay King, Director of the House Office of Interparliamentary Affairs. In a separate email, when told a certain type of aircraft would not be available, King writes, “This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset [s]peaker.”
  • During another email exchange DOD staff advised Kay King that one Pelosi military aircraft request could not be met because of “crew rest requirements” and offered to help secure commercial travel. Kay King responded: “We appreciate the efforts to help the codel [sic] fly commercially but you know the problem that creates with spouses. If we can find another way to assist with military assets, we would like to do that.”

Flashback: Pelosi claims Supremes did ‘violence to our democracy’

 

Shall we do a Flashback and whatever happened to thug AFL-CIO Richard Trumka? He appears along side Pelosi as she now claims the Supremes are a “violent” sort of thing. So first let’s watch Nancy gin up the crowd and now we know what is ahead of us for one long hot summer. Trumka back in action.

 

Thursday at a press conference, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the Supreme Court’s decision on Janus v. AFSCME, which struck down laws requiring government workers to pay union fees, was “violence to our democracy.”

Pelosi said, “Now, yesterday, they did violence to our democracy by trying to diminish the voices of working people.”

She continued, “That’s not the American way. Their decision does violence to the First Amendment.”

The “Tell” is that she is appearing with AFL-CIO Richard Trumka – let’s do a flashback then.

 

 

AFL-CIO Richard Trumka and the Murder of Eddie York

 

…snip

Take the murder of Eddie York, a nonunion contractor, who was shot in the back of the head and killed while leaving a worksite in 1993. Trumka and other UMW officials were charged in a $27 million wrongful death suit by Eddie York’s widow. After fighting the suit intensely for four years, UMW lawyers settled suddenly in 1997 — just two days after the judge in the case ruled evidence in the criminal trial would be admitted.

Later, as Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO, Trumka pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress and a court-appointed election monitor over his role in an illegal fundraising scheme to benefit the Teamsters president Ron Carey’s re-election. Trumka has remained in his position ever since despite an AFL-CIO rule (adopted in 1957) which held that union officials who plead the Fifth have “no right to continue to hold office” in the union umbrella organization.

Flashback to 2009. Nancy had a different view regarding rhetoric didn’t she, as we sucked it up with Obama and his policies.

 

 

A comment made on the clip:

Published on Sep 18, 2009
“The Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda. During one of the most important policy debates of our time, the American people have been completely abandoned by those elected representatives under her control. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington, and the Speaker’s verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering her reputation for being wildly out of touch with the American people.” I saw this and had to post it..Where were all her concerns when Bush was in office?..Movies were made about his death. He was called a liar, Hitler, a murderer, dumb, war monger, ect. I guess when it comes to liberals like this moron, dissent against big government is “Racist and un-American”..but its ok when the left does it. When ever the left had there war protests, at least 100-200 people were arrested because of violent actions on their part. At the “Tea Parties” do you know how many arrests were made?….Zero. Nancy, do us all a favor and shut yer pie-hole…

Pelosi warns Little Red Riding Hood – ‘Don’t go to the theatre, no one can warn you’

Warning to Little Red Riding Hood  – don’t go to the theatre. Ok. I exaggerated. What she said was:

Nancy Pelosi: “The constitution does not say that a person can yell wolf in a crowded theater”

 

And we should worry about the Donald having a grip?

Wiki Leaks: Pelosi may have known about Imran Awan…she appears not to care

The Democrats have spoken through Nancy Pelosi who clearly doesn’t care about IT hackers working in the offices of her party members. Thankfully, this video will be part of the historical record when we look back on this time and see the shameful way that this party has conducted themselves. Schultz is on the ropes, Pelosi would be icing on the cake. Nancy is a stuttering mess–looks concerned to me…

Nancy Pelosi on being swept in special elections ‘I am proud of the way we lost’

Pelosi: ‘So you want me to sing my praises? And other assorted nonsense Nancy has to say on the election. I don’t know why the GOP is adding to the fuel about Nancy and she should go. It is the best thing we have going at this point. Below the clip, a reaction.

 

“We have harmony…..”

 

 

Nancy Pelosi visits Dalai Lama, he prays to rid her of ‘negative attitudes’

In other words, this is known as a junket at tax payers expense. It is curious that Nancy chose the Dalai Lama to heal her wounds. Once more she rambles along, but anyway, Northern India can be nice this time of year.

If there’s anyone on earth who can heal Nancy Pelosi’s bitterness and “negative attitudes,” it might be the Dalai Lama.

During a Congressional visit to Dharamsala, North India, on Tuesday, the House Minority Leader admitted the Dalai Lama was praying for her to rid herself of her negativity.

The most curious part of her speech came when Pelosi said she wouldn’t delve into the “brutal tactics of the Chinese government,” which rules Tibet.

Her reason?

“His Holiness prayed for me that I would rid myself of my negative attitude about dwelling on the negative too much,” Pelosi confessed to the crowd.

The California politician has called herself “a devout, practicing Catholic,” yet her staunch pro-choice position on abortion stands in opposition to the church.

It remains to be seen if the Dalai Lama’s supplication on Pelosi’s behalf has indeed done the trick. H/T: The Blaze
