Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players

  Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players There’s a decent chance that the COVID-19 pandemic will play more of a role during the 2021 NFL season than last year. We’re seeing relaxed protocols from the league as it relates to fully vaccinated players with Week 1 of the campaign slated to get going Thursday evening. It has already led to some COVID-related issues for teams. That includes star guard Zack Martin and the Dallas Cowboys with their opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mere days away. Despite being fully vaccinated, Martin tested positive for the virus and will miss the game.NFLPA president JC Tretter of the Cleveland Browns touched on this recently.

“This heavy-handed action by the federal government is unwelcome in our state and has potentially dangerous consequences for working families. Vaccination protects us from serious illness, but the decision to get vaccinated is a private health care decision that should remain as such. “This is, of course, an act of treason and war against the United States of America, and it opens the window for the white hats in the U.S. military to remove Biden from office and declare his ‘rule’ to be an unconstitutional occupation,” the Health Ranger adds, speculating as to what might happen next in this nightmare saga.

The COVID -19 has meant schools across the globe have closed and over 1.2 billion children no longer in the classroom, with many learning online instead. It is clear that this pandemic has utterly disrupted an education system that many assert was already losing its relevance . In his book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century , scholar Yuval Noah Harari outlines how schools continue to focus on traditional academic skills and rote learning , rather than on skills such as critical thinking and adaptability, which will be more important for success in the future.

In his column of September 17, 2001, conservative columnist Robert Novak reported on the plans of the Washington establishment, including this quote from a Republican senator: "We're going to bomb Afghanistan into a parking lot."

Novak warned that this wouldn’t accomplish what America needed to accomplish. “The CIA, in its present state, is viewed by its Capitol Hill overseers as incapable of targeting bin Laden,” Novak reported.

Sure enough, we did not catch bin Laden in Afghanistan. It took another 10 years and 3 CIA directors before we finally caught up with him in Pakistan.

Red Sox place right-hander Nick Pivetta on COVID-19 IL as outbreak worsens

  Red Sox place right-hander Nick Pivetta on COVID-19 IL as outbreak worsens The Red Sox now have a combination of 12 players and coaches sidelined due to the coronavirus. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts; utility man Enrique Hernandez; second baseman Christian Arroyo; infielder Yairo Munoz; and pitchers Matt Barnes, Hirokazu Sawamura and Martin Perez tested positive for COVID-19, while left-hander Josh Taylor and first-base coach Tom Goodwin are in quarantine as close contacts. Quality control coach Ramon Vazquez has also tested positive for the virus.

Everyone who is getting jabbed for the Chinese Virus will die, he reportedly stated during a recent interview, which you can watch below at Brighteon.com. “There is no hope and no possible treatment for those who have already been vaccinated,” Montagnier stated plainly during the segment. “A certain frequency will resonate with the target only by the mobility tower closest to your home. Skynet is not sending droids, but frequencies.” More of the latest news about the death and destruction being brought to bear by Wuhan coronavirus ( Covid -19) injections can be found at ChemicalViolence.com.

Fuellmich and his team present the incorrect PCR test and the order for doctors to describe any comorbidity death as a Covid death - as fraud. The PCR test was never designed to detect pathogens and is 100% inaccurate at 35 cycles. Under Article 32 of the 1949 Geneva Convention, "mutilation and medical or scientific experiments not required for the medical treatment of a protected person" are prohibited. According to Article 147, conducting biological experiments on protected persons is a serious breach of the Convention.

Novak, who would hire me as a staff reporter about three months later, also noted that the more hawkish elements of the American Right were already calling for a broad regime-change. Bill Bennett, for instance, had suggested that the U.S. ought to follow an Afghanistan invasion with attacks on Syria, Iran, Libya, and Iraq.

“An American attack on some of those countries," Novak remarked, "would be a geopolitical disaster.”

Novak's column, written days after 9/11, became a central exhibit in David Frum’s case in National Review that Bob Novak was an “Unpatriotic Conservative.” The central theme of the piece, published on the eve of the Iraq War, was that the people opposing President Bush’s intervention really just hated their country.

MLB to require vaccinations for players to participate in Arizona Fall League

  MLB to require vaccinations for players to participate in Arizona Fall League Major League Baseball is requiring players to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to participate in the Arizona Fall League, reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. It marks the first instance of an MLB vaccination mandate directly affecting players. © Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Last week, Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported that MLB was mandating vaccinations among non-playing team personnel in order for those individuals to be granted access to the field during postseason play.

6 lessons from China's Zhejiang Province and Hangzhou on how countries can prevent and rebound from an epidemic like COVID -19. National and local governments around the world can learn from China's response to the COVID -19 outbreak. During the early days of the outbreak in Wuhan, there were no test kits available, and screening depended on laboratory nucleic acid sequencing analysis, a labour-intensive and costly method. The National Medical Products Administration of China took immediate action to speed up the work of biotech companies to develop detection kits.

COVID Mass Vaccination Experiment: Prepare For The Worst With This Health Protocol. Another example is the US Patriot Act that was for years under preparation, way before 9 / 11 ; just waiting for Finally, Bhakdi, who warned of impending "doom" during a Fox News interview that went viral, calls The best way for humanity to respond to the Covid Planetary Predicament is to collectively resist by

As we stand amid a pandemic defined by massive, sudden, emotionally charged government actions, and look back 20 years ago to the massive, sudden, emotionally charged actions of the Bush Administration and Congress, it is worth remembering that back then there were people who resisted government overreaction and were excoriated for it.

It’s easy to read the media today and assume there was uniformity behind the post-9/11 errors. But actually, some of us opposed creation of the TSA. Some of us opposed expansion of domestic surveillance. Some of us warned about the difficulty of nation building. Some of us—even on the Right—opposed the Iraq War.

For those crimes, we were sometimes called “unpatriotic” and even anti-Semitic. We were warned, when we asked for more evidence that the proposed interventions were necessary, that the proof would come in the form of a “mushroom cloud.”

Astros right-hander Zack Greinke confirms he tested positive for COVID-19

  Astros right-hander Zack Greinke confirms he tested positive for COVID-19 Greinke has slowly been working his way back to the mound and will start Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers.Greinke provided an update Saturday, saying he, his wife and two sons all tested positive for COVID-19, adding that all four are fully vaccinated, per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.

Covid -19 Freedom Index. Moscow's top envoy also pointed to a similar view aired recently by French president Emmanuel Macron, who argued that foreign intervention should only be conducted hand-in-hand with a sovereign nation, rather than in an effort to overturn the government of a country. "The moment is very interesting," Lavrov said, "both of them, with a gap of just one or two days, announced that it was time to wrap up interference in the internal affairs of other countries with aims to impose Western-style democracy on them."

Thus, the next question becomes: What do the globalists unleash next, after America fails to meet the 70% vaccination target? The likely answer is they move ahead with the next phase anyway. The vaccine deaths were just a softening-up phase, preparing for the final war to take down America. I believe we are on the verge of World War III, and in fact China’s covid bioweapons assault on America was only the first phase, aided by Fauci and his cohorts who have long served as puppets of anti-American globalists.

As a result, many of us have been unimpressed over the last 18 months when told that questioning the government’s massive, unprecedented, disruptive interventions would result in untold deaths. Those of us who opposed unreasonable closures, who questioned the need for mask mandates, who resisted government intrusions into our private institutions, were called killers. We were told we would be responsible for untold deaths.

The analogy between the post-9/11 mania and the coronavirus-mania is imperfect, of course. Saddam Hussein killed nobody with his non-existent WMDs. Al Qaida’s body-count over 20 years is a drop in the bucket compared to COVID’s body-count. But in certain regards, the analogy works perfectly.

“Students will die” if schools are reopened, teachers warned. This captured two totally false, WMD-like, storylines: First that COVID would be a mass-murderer of children, and second, that opening schools was dangerous.

Another parallel between the pandemic response and the 9/11 response: The interventions have proven less effective and more costly than promised. School closures, banning outdoor youth sports, closing swimming pools, the costly Clorox theater — all have been pointless and have harmed young people and all of society.

Fact check: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines all passed animal testing

  Fact check: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines all passed animal testing Each of the three COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in the U.S. passed animal testing studies. Claims otherwise are false.Now some proponents of the anti-parasitic drug traditionally used for animals are falsely claiming COVID-19 vaccinations haven't passed animal studies.

Going forward, the most important parallel might be the lack of an end date. By naming the post-9/11 response the "War on Terror," the Bush administration created license for permanent war, permanent surveillance, and permanent suspension of civil liberties.

It's the same with this virus. Like the flu and like terror, the novel coronavirus will be with us until the end of the world. There will always be excuses for draconian quarantine rules, for mask mandates, for new vaccine mandates, and so on. To borrow a phrase, we're in a forever-pandemic.

Reds activate one-time All-Star righty Brad Brach from injured list .
Signed to a minor league deal May 6, the Reds selected Brach’s contract May 21. The righty went on to log 29 innings out of the Cincy bullpen, with an ERA of 5.59. Barring a strong finish, this would be Brach’s third consecutive season with an ERA north of 5.00, after seven solid seasons split between the Padres, Orioles and Braves. Brach’s 24.1% strikeout rate on the year is close to league average, but command has been the issue for him of late. His 12.8% walk rate is well above the leaguewide rate of 8.7%, but it’s at least an improvement over the ghastly 24.1% rate he put up in 2020.
