The CDC’s data reveals that “the Delta variant hasn’t been seen in weeks” writes National Review. The good news is that new cases are “now down 80 percent from the early January peak. But judging from masking – and vaccination – policy decisions from Washington, D.C., to New York City to Canada, you would think the Omicron variant was still raging out of control” writes National Review.

Charting done by the New York Times’s seven-day average suggests new cases nationwide peaked on January 14 at 806,000. “Mondays tend to bring spikes, likely reflecting a backlog of delayed reports from the weekend. On January 3, the country reported more than 1 million new cases, and on January 10, the country reported more than 1.4 million new cases” Reports National Review.

The good news, as of Monday, the country reported about 206,000 new cases, and the seven-day average of daily new cases dropped to just below 155,000. “That comes out to an 80 percent drop in a month and puts the country back to the new-case levels of the week before Christmas.”

National Review lays out some of the policies that are unnecessary in light of the Omicron variant’s huge decrease:

The Omicron wave coming to its end should be a factor in all of the current pandemic policy decisions — including D.C.’s decision to keep masks on kids in schools indefinitely, the Department of Homeland Security’s hunt for “Covid-19 disinformation,” and the city of New York firing more than 1,400 workers for refusing to get vaccinated. Since there’s no reason to think that the Omicron wave is passing differently in Canada, its gradual end ought to be a factor in Justin Trudeau’s insistence that all Canadian truckers must get vaccinated.

    In Maine…1,924 cases last Saturday…..second highest number since December 10th…..which was a bit over two thousand. So….it’s not going away everywhere.

    The hunt for disinformation should start with taking a look at The View, CNN, MSNBC and similar sources. Personally, I prefer to follow the Science rather than the Politics.

    This “variant” is ONLY A FUCKING COLD!
    Just as COVID is simply a FUCKING COLD!
    Now, the “variant” is the introduction of a Spike Protein which action will soon be revealed that it DESTROYS the basic immune system in human!
    To boost it all, there is also a “spike protein” in the boosters, and all the shots they want you to take. To make sure that 2 BILLION people will die of every simple little crap that floats around.
    CHECK ME ON THAT, DAMNIT!

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 in 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.”
