‘CDC bypassed scientific norms to allow teachers union bosses to re-write official guidance’

On Wednesday, Saracarter.com published an article about a report from Republicans on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis. The report exposed how to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) allowed powerful Teachers’ Unions to dictate its guidance on reopening schools.
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) joined Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle to discuss the findings and the necessity for an investigation:
“What we exposed through this is that it was political science, not in medical science, that [the] CDC used to put their guidance out on school reopenings. And, in fact, [the] CDC was getting ready to come out with guidance that would have been more favorable towards opening schools, and then the teachers unions were given – over a week before it came out – were given a sneak copy of it that no one else got that we’ve been able to find – and said, ‘Okay, what do you think about this?’ And we uncovered emails between the CDC Director and the union president saying, ‘Wait a minute, we don’t like this. We want new language that makes it easier to close schools.’

“And they actually – the unions – gave different language to the CDC. And then [the] CDC’s final language was almost word-for-word, verbatim, from what the teachers union said. I don’t know of any other group – surely no parents groups – that got this kind of VIP access. And in fact, I asked the CDC Director today in the hearing to give me a list of anybody else that they gave this kind of access to change the documents.”

Rep. Scalise says the CDC must be investigated for giving the unions such power:
“Ultimately, what [the teachers union bosses] said was ‘We want stronger guidance to keep schools closed. To keep millions of children out of schools.’ And keep in mind, too, Laura, this is all going on under the backdrop when the Justice Department is calling parents domestic terrorists for showing up at school board meetings.

“So, I asked the CDC Director, ‘Give me names of parent groups that you consulted and gave the same kind of VIP access?’ They couldn’t give me a name. And, I said, ‘I want to know, like, were parents allowed to have the same kind of ability to change the science, like the unions were able to get to keep schools closed?’ And she couldn’t give me a single name because it was the union bosses who said, ‘Look, don’t come up with this until you give us new ability to shut down schools,’ and they paid off their friends and gave them the language.”

    Well, let’s hope this alerts parents and citizens about what happens when citizens, willingly, obediently relinquish our God given, Constitutional rights.
    But, in areas like the New York city, Long Island region of New York; I doubt it

    In early 1900s, unions were created to prevent child abuse!
    Today the unions ARE THE CHILD ABUSERS!
    Lazy stupid teachers want to destroy the Family to help create a state schooling that will brainwash the children into SLAVES to the state!
    Taking away all ambitions, all desires, all willpower to create the perfect employees who count on the state for every need. All in the same mold.
    Only the Party kids can go to school of their choice!

Watchdog: Pentagon likely rushed denials of COVID-19 vaccine Religious Exemption requests

Published

Afghanistan 676001056

The Army only approved just 24 religious COVID-19 vaccine exemption requests out of a total 8,514 requests submitted by active duty soldiers, and  1,602 requests have been rejected while the rest remain pending.

Military.com obtained information showing the Pentagon rushed vaccine exemption denials:

Sean O’Donnell, the Pentagon’s inspector general, wrote in a June 2 memo to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin obtained by Military.com calling attention to a “concerning” trend in which military brass rushed to reject vaccine-exemption petitions rather than giving each request due consideration.

“We found a trend of generalized assessments rather than the individualized assessment that is required by Federal law and DoD and Military Service policies,” he said. “Some of the appellate decisions included documentation that demonstrated a greater consideration of facts and circumstances involved in a request.”

In March, a Texas judge blocked the Navy from dismissing sailors with pending exemption requests and n August, a Florida federal judge ordered class action relief and granted an injunction barring the federal government from enforcing the vaccine mandate for the Marine Corps.

National Review writes, “For the last year, military has been struggling with a recruitment problem. As of July, with only three months left in the fiscal year, the Army had met only 40 percent of its recruitment goal and reduced its active-duty force by 12,000 troops.”

O’Donnell calculated that officials likely gave each appeal a cursory glance rather than a thorough examination, possibly opening the door to litigation from service members who had to resign after they failed to obtain exemptions. Across all the branches, there were about 50 denials per day in a 90-day period, he determined. Over a thousand Coast Guardsmen have already tried to launch a class-action lawsuit in response to their being refused religious exemptions, the publication noted.

“The volume and rate at which decisions were made to deny requests is concerning,” the memo read. “Assuming a 10-hour work day with no breaks or attention to other matters, the average review period was about 12 minutes for each package. Such a review period seems insufficient to process each request in an individualized manner and still perform the duties required of their position.”
