The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says people who test positive for COVID-19 can still vote in person, according to a recent advisory on voting safely amid the pandemic.

“Voters who are sick or in quarantine should take steps to protect poll workers and other voters,” the advisory reads.

The instructions will likely raise eyebrows for many Americans living in states where sweeping mail-in voting measures have been adopted to reduce the spread of the novel virus.

“This includes wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer before and after voting,” it states.”You should also let poll workers know that you are sick or in quarantine when you arrive at the polling location. Check with local authorities for any additional guidance.”

The instructions will likely raise eyebrows for many Americans living in states where sweeping mail-in voting measures have been adopted to reduce the spread of the novel virus.

“It should also raise some eyebrows regarding the extreme measures taken to lockdown businesses and shut down schools to mitigate the spread when according to the CDC wearing a mask and keeping social distance is all you need,” said Sara Carter on Tuesday, when the news came out. “It’s this back and forth that has Americans so confused as to the aimless mandates being imposed on our nation with regard to COVID-19.”

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
