The CDC is considering adding the covid vaccine to the list of mandatory childhood vaccinations. This is crazy. With all the information we have about bad side effects from the drug, notwithstanding that it does not prevent infection or transmission, parents need to rise up forcefully to stop this abuse. Our children are NOT pawns with which you can do what you please. No way.

Friday…apparently it has been done, several states thus far have said they will not comply. On a greedier note, Pfizer is raising the cost of the vaccine to $130 per dose as the government is going to stop paying for the vaccine. Pretty blatant graft and all out in the open. How much money will Pfizer pay to the higher ups at the CDC for their decision? They are all getting very wealthy from this.

Collectively employees at Health and Human Services, reported 60% more sales of stocks and funds in January than the average over the previous 12 months, driven by a handful of particularly active traders.

By March, then Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao purchased $600,000 in two stock funds while her agency was in the pandemic response and her husband, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, was leading negotiations over a giant, market boosting stimulus bill.

And as the government was devising a loan package aimed specifically at helping companies including Boeing and General Electric Co., a Treasury Department official involved in administering the aid acquired shares of both companies.”

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
