    Wearing masks at work

    Almost every retail store I’ve been in recently are. Lowes, Home Depot, Wegmans’s, Walmart to name a few. A large number of customers seem to be wearing them again also.

SOPA Images/LightRocket via Gett Fourteen portable morgues are en route to help overburdened hospitals in Central Florida amidst the state’s massive breakout of COVID-19, a report said. There were more than 1,700 deaths due to the virus in the past week in the Sunshine State, according to reports.

The hospitals are unable to request the aid they would typically receive through the Florida Emergency Mortuary Operations Response System, according to the email. “Since there is no disaster declaration for the state, we are unable to request assets such as FEMORS, but they are being contacted for guidance,” the email said. The morgues will be distributed among nine area hospitals, two of which — AdventHealth and Orlando Health — will receive three morgues each. Gov. Ron DeSantis’ mask mandate ban was shot down on Friday. SOPA Images/LightRocket via Gett Nearly 44,000 Floridians have died during the pandemic, according to WESH 2. On Friday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ ban on mask mandates for students and staff in the state’s public schools was shot down by a judge. Leon County Circuit Judge John C. Cooper found DeSantis’ July executive order — which barred schools from forcing students to mask-up — “is without legal authority.” The judge sided with a group of parents, who challenged the executive order in a lawsuit, following three days of video hearings in the case. The ruling came after 10 state school boards — representing half of Florida’s 2.8 million public school students — voted to go against DeSantis’ order and impose mask mandates.

    https://nypost.com/2021/08/27/prosecutors-wont-challenge-rfk-assassin-sirhan-sirhans-bid-for-freedom/ Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin Sirhan Sirhan granted parole By Lee Brown and Bruce Golding August 27, 2021 12:46pm Updated MORE ON:SIRHAN SIRHAN Rafer Johnson, Olympic gold medalist who nabbed RFK killer, dead at 86 RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan in stable condition after prison stabbing Robert F. Kennedy Jr. doesn’t think Sirhan Sirhan killed his dad The moment RFK’s assassin was denied parole The late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin was granted parole Friday after two of the slain political icon’s sons said they supported his release. Douglas Kennedy, who was a toddler when his father was gunned down in 1968, said he was moved to tears by Sirhan Sirhan’s remorse during a parole hearing that prosecutors didn’t attend. “I’m overwhelmed just by being able to view Mr. Sirhan face to face,” he said. “I think I’ve lived my life both in fear of him and his name in one way or another. And I am grateful today to see him as a human being worthy of compassion and love.” Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has spoken in favor of Sirhan’s release in the past, also wrote in favor of paroling Sirhan. Sirhan — who smiled as Kennedy spoke — told members of the California Parole Board that he’d learned to control his anger. A grinning Sirhan Sirhan arrives for his parole hearing Friday. AP “I would never put myself in jeopardy again,” said Sirhan, 77. “You have my pledge. I will always look to safety and peace and non-violence.” Sirhan, 77, Sirhan, a Christian Palestinian from Jordan, has acknowledged he was angry at Kennedy for his support of Israel, and he broke down in tears when asked how he felt about the Middle East conflict today. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968. Bettmann Archive Sen. Robert F. Kennedy lies on the floor of the Ambassador Hotel after being shot by Sirhan Sirhan. Bettmann Archive “The misery that those people are experiencing. It’s painful,” he said after composing himself. Sirhan could be deported if he’s freed, and he tried to convince Parole Board Commissioner Robert Barton he wouldn’t become a lightning rod to spur more violence overseas. “The same argument can be said or made that I can be a peacemaker, and a contributor to a friendly nonviolent way of resolving the issue,” Sirhan said. Sirhan has lost 15 bids for freedom — with his last parole board in 2016 ruling that he had not shown remorse for the 1968 murder of the New York senator and brother of President John F. Kennedy. Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón recently announced that for the first time his office would not object to the release of Sihan, who has served 53 years in prison. “The role of a prosecutor and their access to information ends at sentencing,” said Alex Bastian, a special adviser to Gascón. Sirhan’s hearing was presided over by a two-person panel that announced its decision shortly afterward. The Parole Board staff now has 90 days to review the decision, after which it will be handed over to the governor for consideration. The Parole Board had said earlier that it wouldn’t reveal if the Kennedy family or anyone else submitted statements opposing Sirhan’s release. Sirhan Sirhan is led away from the Ambassador Hotel after shooting Robert F. Kennedy. Bettmann Archive Gascón, a former cop, said he reached the difficult decision to leave the decision to the parole board even though he admired Kennedy and knows Sirhan is “the kind of individual that we all like to hate.” “I can get very emotionally wrapped around my personal feelings (about) someone that killed someone that I thought could have been an incredible president for this country,” Gascón said. “But that has no place in this process. Just like it doesn’t for the person nobody knows about.” RFK was a Democratic presidential candidate when he was gunned down at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles moments after delivering a victory speech in the pivotal California primary. Sirhan was sentenced to death after his conviction, but that sentence was commuted to life when the California Supreme Court briefly outlawed capital punishment in 1972. At Sirhan’s last parole hearing in 2016, commissioners concluded after more than three hours of intense testimony that he did not show adequate remorse or understand the enormity of his crime. Sirhan was 24 at the time of the assassination, and has repeatedly claimed to have no memory of the killing. However, he has recalled events before the crime in detail — going to a shooting range that day, visiting the hotel in search of a party, and returning after realizing he was too drunk to drive. Ted Kennedy stands in front of his brother’s coffin during funeral Mass in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York on June 8, 1968. Gamma-Keystone via Getty Images He recalled drinking a coffee just before the assassination — claiming the next thing he remembered was being choked and unable to breathe as he was taken into custody. At his 2016 hearing, he said he felt remorse for any crime victim but couldn’t take responsibility for the shooting. Sirhan’s new defense attorney, Angela Berry, said she plans to argue that the decision should be based on who Sirhan is today and not then. He has an exemplary prison record that shows he is not a danger, she said. “We can’t change the past, but he was not sentenced to life without the possibility of parole,” Berry told the AP. “To justify denying it based on the gravity of the crime and the fact that it disenfranchised millions of Americans is ignoring the rehabilitation that has occurred and that rehabilitation is a more relevant indicator of whether or not a person is still a risk to society.” Berry said it was hard to predict what impact the prosecution’s absence would have on the outcome after Sirhan’s release has already been knocked down 15 times. “I like to think it’ll make a difference. But I think everybody is not impervious to the fact that this is political,” she said.

State Sen. André Jacque, a Republican from De Pere, tested positive for the bug around Aug. 13, telling the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he was mostly asymptomatic but was feeling fatigued. But Jacque, 40, who has been hospitalized for at least a week, was put on a ventilator late Monday, a spokesman for the lawmaker told the newspaper. He was listed in stable condition as of Wednesday. Jacque, who was elected as a state senator in 2018, has been one of Wisconsin’s most vocal opponents against COVID-19 vaccines and mask mandates — including a statewide mask order implemented by Gov. Tony Evers, according to the Journal Sentinel. It’s unclear whether Jacque had been vaccinated. The father of six was seen at the state Capitol as recently as Aug. 11 while testifying without wearing a mask, WISN reported. Two of Jacque’s colleagues have asked the public for prayers after he was hospitalized with coronavirus-induced pneumonia, the Journal Sentinel reported. André Jacque (left) has been hospitalized for at least a week. Facebook One of the state lawmakers, Republican Rep. Shae Sortwell, called on his 10,000-plus followers on Facebook to pray for the ailing Jacque, prompting a heated response from Jacque’s brother. Pierre Jacque said his family wasn’t giving him much information about his brother’s condition, claiming they’re “afraid I’ll spill the beans” and disclose the truth. “They’re brainwashed by ‘alternate facts’ now, so I don’t speak for them,” Pierre’s Saturday post read. “Go get the vaccine. Or at least be honest and let your flock know that the ‘choice’ they are making is between effective scientifically-backed preventative medicine, or choking on a vent while their friends and colleagues hide their condition,” he continued. Pierre Jacque, brother of Andre Jacque, has called the rest of his family “brainwashed.” Facebook Jacque’s communications director, Matt Tompach, did not respond to an inquiry by The Post on whether the lawmaker had been vaccinated. “While his condition is currently stable, the days and weeks ahead will continue to be an incredibly stressful and difficult time for Sen. Jacque’s family, as you can imagine,” Tompach said in a statement. “Please respect their privacy during what will likely be an extended process. His office will provide updates as warranted.” State Sen. André Jacque tested positive for COVID-19 around August 13.Michael P. King/Wisconsin State Journal via AP, File

And now it’s too late,” she told the outlet. Brandon, who was vaccinated, had a mild case of the virus. But her sons’ health took a turn for the worse. She brought them both to the hospital, where they were admitted into the intensive care unit and ultimately put on ventilators. Free died on Aug. 12, and his younger brother, Aaron, followed 12 hours later. “I think they would be alive today if they would have gotten their shot,” Brandon said. The mom said she’s speaking out about the ordeal to urge others to get the jab. “It’s a parent’s worst nightmare,” Brandon said of her sons’ deaths. “The only reason I’m doing this is to put the word out to please get vaccinated.” Free Jaggi, 41, left and Aaron Jaggi, 35, died hours apart.

Video posted on Facebook last week shows the massive police procession that escorted the flag-draped coffin of Fort Lauderdale Officer Jennifer Sepot from the Northwest Medical Center in Margate to a funeral home after her Aug. 14 death. It was unclear if she or the other officers had been vaccinated. Sepot, 27, was infected with the coronavirus while working as a road patrol officer, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page website, which lists COVID-19 as the No. 1 killer of cops in the US during both 2020 and 2021. The four-year veteran, who was buried Friday, is survived by her husband, a Margate cop, and their daughter, 2, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    How’s that COVID-19 “Vaccine” working out for you?

The move would make it the first Covid vaccine to go from emergency use authorization to full FDA approval. The move may help persuade more people to get vaccinated and more businesses and schools to mandate vaccinations. In this article PFE+1.98 (+4.06%) 22UA-DE+7.00 (+2.38%) Empty vials of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine are seen at a first come first serve drive-thru vaccination site operated by the Lake County Health Department on January 28, 2021 in Groveland, Florida. Paul Hennessy | NurPhoto | Getty Images The Food and Drug Administration is working to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine on Monday, The New York Times reported, citing sources. The review process could move past that date, the Times said, as paperwork and negotiations with the company continue. The move would make it the first Covid vaccine to go from emergency use authorization to full FDA approval. The FDA declined to comment on the Times report to CNBC. White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci told the Associated Press on Aug. 8 that he hoped vaccines would start receiving full approval “within the month of August,” adding that full approval would lead more companies and schools to mandate vaccines. U.S. companies have tightened vaccine rules for employees as Covid cases have spiked across the country in recent weeks, and some cited full approval from the FDA as part of the decision-making process. Full approval could also help persuade people who are hesitant about getting vaccinated until the FDA fully signs off on the shot. More than 203 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine have been administered nationwide, fully immunizing more than 91 million people in the U.S., according to CDC data as of Friday. Pfizer and BioNTech initially began the process of applying for their biologics license for the two-dose vaccine in May after receiving emergency use authorization from the FDA in December. The FDA sets a six-month target for approving high-priority drugs. If formally authorized, Pfizer and BioNTech’s vaccine would remain available on the market after the pandemic ends, and the companies would be able to advertise the vaccine directly to consumers. Pharmaceutical manufacturers with an EUA are prohibited from promoting their vaccines, CNBC previously reported. The companies announced on Aug. 16 that they began the approval process for a booster dose for fully vaccinated people after submitting clinical trial data to the FDA. Top health officials from agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the White House and the FDA said in a statement Wednesday that the effectiveness of mRNA vaccines declines over time, especially for those with compromised immune systems. They said the U.S. will begin widely distributing booster shots to the public in September.

I really don’t think either side knows and you just go with your gut feeling. And that goes for the people that choose opposite of me. They feel just as strongly with their decision. Thumbs up to them.

    This is Twitter 😆😆😆 https://www.mediaite.com/news/twitter-says-taliban-spokesman-will-be-allowed-to-remain-if-he-doesnt-get-too-violent/ Twitter Says Taliban Spokesman Will be Allowed to Remain if He Doesn’t Get Too Violent By Rudy TakalaAug 17th, 2021, 2:59 pm Olivier Douliery/Getty Images Twitter is refusing to join its peers in the social-media world in prohibiting the Taliban from using its platform. Asked on Tuesday whether Twitter would join Facebook, TikTok and other tech companies in banning the terror group, a spokesman for the company sidestepped the question, saying in a statement it would “continue to proactively enforce” its rules on the “glorification of violence, platform manipulation and spam.” The statement also took a moment to sell the company as a communication platform, saying it was “witnessing people in the country using Twitter to seek help and assistance.” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid maintains an active presence on the website, where he enjoyed more than 200,000 followers as of Tuesday. He also is not the group’s only member using social media to promote the Taliban’s message. An announcement Mujahid posted earlier in the day about a Taliban press conference in Kabul drew messages from some of his supporters, including one who went by the name Muhammad Ibrahim. Ibrahim’s history on the website showed that he used his account in July to provide advice to one self-proclaimed 26-year-old Bangaladeshi man seeking to join the terror group. “I want to join Taliban,” the man wrote in a July 14 message. “Pls help me.” “Then go to Afghanistan.” Ibrahim replied, before advising him to seek his parents’ permission first. Twitter drew fire from critics who noted that allowing the Taliban to remain on the platform stood in contrast with the company’s January move to impose a lifetime ban on former President Donald Trump, including Rep. Madison Cawthorne (R-NC). “Why on God’s green Earth does the Taliban spokesman have an active Twitter account but not the former President of the United States?” Cawthorne wrote on Sunday. “Who’s [sic] side is the AMERICA BASED Big-Tech companies on?” French politician Jerome Riviere echoed the sentiment from across the Atlantic, opining, “Freedom and democracy are not doing well when Twitter continues to ban Trump’s account but relays the Taliban spokesperson’s without any second thoughts.” The company added in its statement, “Twitter’s top priority is keeping people safe, and we remain vigilant.” Have a tip we should know? tips@mediaite.com

The Taliban has rapidly taken control of most of the country as insurgent forces enter the capital city of Kabul, where U.S. troops have been sent to evacuate the embassy. Mobs of panicked people can be seen at the Kabul airport frantically trying to flee the city on Sunday. Trump’s administration had negotiated the terms of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan by May 1. Trump even considered withdrawing troops from the region before leaving office. When President Biden announced that he planned to fully withdraw troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, he was slammed by Trump who insisted Biden “keep as close” as possible to his own goal of getting the troops out on May 1. Trump also bashed Biden over other issues like the border crisis and current surge of COVID-19 cases. Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images “I made early withdraw possible by already pulling much of our billions of dollars of equipment out and, more importantly, reducing our military presence to less than 2,000 troops from the 16,000 level that was there (likewise in Iraq, and zero troops in Syria except for the area where we KEPT THE OIL),” he said in an email to supporters in April. Republicans have blasted Biden for the current crisis in the country, where the U.S. had maintained a presence for 20 years.

    How’s that COVID-19 “Vaccine” working out for you?

    https://nypost.com/2021/08/14/nine-year-old-new-yorker-volunteers-for-covid-vax-trial/ Nine-year-old New Yorker volunteers for COVID vax trial By Conor Skelding August 14, 2021 4:34pm Updated Walker Clary -- a 9-year-old from Cicero, New York -- is participating in a pharmaceutical trial for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.Provided by the Clary Family An upstate boy is a COVID-19 vaccine pioneer, according to a report. Walker Clary volunteered to participate in a pharmaceutical trial to “test the safety and effectiveness” of the Moderna vaccine for those aged six months to 12 years, according to syracuse.com Walker Clary at his first COVID-19 vaccine dose appointment. Provided by the Clary Family The two-shot vaccine is currently only offered to those 18 and older. “I want to help out other kids,’’ Clary said, according to the news outlet. “And it’s exciting to be one of the first my age to get the shot.” He’s a rising fourth-grader from Cicero, a northern suburb of Syracuse. Walker got his shot at an upstate hospital on Wednesday, his father, Bob Clary, told syracuse.com, with nothing more than a sore arm and a little disturbed sleep for his troubles. In just under a month, he’s slated to get his second shot. With his mom, dad, 14-year-old brother and 12-year-old sister all inoculated as well, Walker had no qualms about getting the jab. “I’m not really worried about it at all,’’ he told Syracuse.com. “I don’t want to get COVID.” Walker with a backpack from the Moderna’s KidCOVE study that he participated in. Provided by the Clary Family His older brother, Jack, did the trial last year, his dad told The Post. “And we showed both of them the opportunity based on some information our pediatrician had posted,” he said. “[Walker], like most kids, struggled being at home and not school last year, so I think he also knows this is an opportunity to help make sure kids across the country stay in school and sports,” he dad added. Clary got his shot at Upstate University Hospital in Kirkville, as part of Moderna’s KidCOVE study. Families are offered compensation to participate. Nearly 7,000 people are participating in the trial, Moderna said. Moderna plans to recruit for the study by age — first going to kids 6 to 12, then kids 2 to 6, and lastly those ages six months to 2 years, the company said.
