"It is pretty amazing. The Party of Science, which dominates Washington, D C. They have a new covert vaccine policy. It is not scientific. Okay, So here is DC's new standards in Washington, D C has set a new standard for vaccinations. Now. This should be very easy. The center for vaccinations should be if you're 65 you get one right? We do it by age. That's how you should do it. If you are some, If you're a doctor who is working routinely with covered patients, you probably also get one. We should not be vaccinating people working grocery stores or people who are delivering packages at the same rates that we are vaccinating people who are 65 older. It should be an age based decision. End of story. So what is Washington, DC doing being driven by the science entirely Democratic area? How are they actually trenching out the vaccines, According to the Washington Post, the district plans to give priority for Coronas Corona virus vaccines to the broadest possible swath of people with preexisting health conditions, a decision that'll make hundreds of thousands eligible for scarce doses of the vaccine. And at some public health experts say, my gnomic medical sense Might not make medical sense. Here's what they're actually proposing. Okay, you ready for this? The plan would offer vaccines to people whose weight and medical history would not qualify them for early access to that scene in almost any state in the country. Apparently d C health director. Look, Wandera Nesbitt told members of the D. C council last week, she decided to open up vaccine access, possibly as soon as February to such a large group in the hopes of quickly vaccinating anyone. Who? What? What exactly is the is the cut off the cut off is you just have to testify that you have any pre existing condition at all. You just put it on your form. You just say that you're a smoker, or you've had cancer or heart failure or diabetes or down syndrome. Okay. These are all chronic conditions. Or or you have to have a body mass index over 25. Okay, Just to be clear. A body mass index over 25 is like everyone. Unless you're in pretty good shape. You do not have a body mass index under 25. Okay, that just means overweight. Overweight is 25. Obesity is 30. I'm in pretty good shape. I work out pretty much every day. My body mass index is like 22. Okay, so the the bizarre notion that you were going to trash out hundreds of thousands of vaccines to anyone who is slightly overweight. As opposed to you know the of the people who are elderly and at risk total craziness. But of course, the goal here is racial equity above all. That is the goal here. Experts like David Cassie Johns Hopkins, cardiology professor. That some of the conditions the district is including have not been proved. But people at higher risk of complications from cover 19 the disease caused by the novel coronavirus in terms of body weight, some recommended prioritizing people would be unwise over 40. Rather than anyone whose weight is above a level considered healthy. I mean, being my over 40 severe obesity be a member 30 some risk. There's no evidence that bm I have 25 is going to kill you. But again bad policy doesn't matter. All that matters is the Brokenness. The woke anus is what matters above up. Okay, Well, you may be looking at the state of modern American politics, and you may be saying yourself. You know what? These media. I hope they finally get the message that they actually need to be watchdogs, right? That was their job. The objective media they need to be watchdogs. Can't you be lapdogs and you'd be watchdogs, right? The American people actually get it. There's a pullout from Edelman and shows that the American Trust in the media is an all time low as well. It should be assured with Axios. Here is what the poll found. Apparently the trust in traditional media 46% of Americans say they trust traditional media. Presumably, they're all Democrats. Among Republicans, Those numbers are abysmal. Only 18% of Republicans say they believe journalists after the 2020 election, which Mean hard to argue with that? Not sure why you would. The vast majority of members of the American public believe that journalists and reporters are purposely trying to mislead them. And 58% think news organizations are more interested in ideology than facts. 57% of Democrats trust the media. Shocker. Shocker. I can't believe it. You mean you trust the media? Did they tell you exactly what you want to hear all the time, But don't worry. There's no leftist bias in the media. Yeah, apparently Republican Trust in traditional media plunged following the 2020 election. But the truth is that that plunge should have happened much earlier. The Republican belief in the veracity of the media. It found a 15 point drop in media trust among Trump's Trump supporters. Apparently about 33% of Republicans used to trust the media. Now it's only about 18%. I'm not sure why anyone trust the media to simply be objective. They simply are not there, not objective in any way, shape or form. And the proof's in the pudding. I mean, every single day I show you clips of members of your esteemed journalistic media who are basically just doing dirty work for the Biden administration or for the Democrats or from Biden campaign during the campaign. So, for example, here is CNN's Alison Camerata, literally asking members of the Biden administration if they will retaliate against the news networks if they lie. So well, here's CNN asking if the bite administration is going to target Newsmax only and then and fox News? Yeah, definitely. I trust CNN. Absolutely objective people. No, no interest here. They're just truth tellers. By the way that is unconstitutional. Divide Administration has no power to involve itself in these particular debates. Here's Alison Camerota pushing it anyway. Heard that as a direct shot at some of the media companies that lied about the election results. We know who they are. I mean, there there, you know, Right? Win Cos some are more fringe than others at this point from or I guess extreme than others, and so if they continue to engage in lies something that he is trying to combat What is your communications strategy? Will you deny those networks and the interviews? I mean, what happens if they revert to form immediately? So will you punish? Will you revert to form? What will you tell people that you won't interview with them? Because CNN doesn't like them, please? Will you do that? I mean, we are the truth. Tellers here in CNN, everybody else on the other side. Those are not truth. Tellers at all. CNN is the place you come for your news and also for your for your Kool aid from the left side of the.

"Dot com During their latest update, the White House Corona Virus Task force appears to sound optimistic that the situation is stabilizing. But is that really happening? And new federal guidelines? You coming out concerning Cove In 19? We spoke via Skype with political Ken reporter David Limb. Vice President Mike Pence today, said that there are some signs of improvement around the horizon and certain states, including Arizona, Florida and Texas. My coworker, Briana and I did some reporting and we found that Many states are still saying significant numbers of current of various cases, and there's a little bit of mixed messaging around what improvements we might be seeing. Because certain states, including Arizona are still seeing record numbers of possible is ations. As you indicated. We've heard that there's been a surge, especially in Southern states. So is the federal government's data jiving at all with what states are seeing. I think the federal government and states are dealing with data as it comes in, so that means that it will probably take a few days to understand exactly what's happening as case data. Works its way into the systems. Some of the data that the federal government presented today. White House Krone virus coordinator Debra Bricks suggested that the seven day moving average positivity rates for certain states is beginning to level off. And it's still extremely high in the states, including Arizona in Florida. There's also been a huge amount of talk about schools, the fall coming up how they're going to reopen. The vice president said that new CDC guidelines were coming. So what did you learn on that front? The CDC previously released guidance on how schools Khun safely reopened in the fall. But CDC director Robert Redfield today announced the agency would be releasing additional guidance this week on schools after Trump criticized the agency's initial guidelines, as quote tough and expensive earlier will be keeping a sharp eye out to see what changes are coming down the pike on that the CDC director. He also indicated that's really Up to schools to the side. Still that even if they're coming up with these guidelines that it's really up to the educators to do what they want to with re opening plans. So what kind of message does that send to school systems as they're trying to plan for the fall semesters? I think that is a trend that you're seeing with this administration. They want to leave a lot of decision making. Up Tio localities and states and they don't want Teo put out national recommendations that limit what individual states Khun do with their schools. Their individual cities or district's can deal with their schools. So I think it's just a continuation of the chain that we saw before and that's political health care Reporter David Limb on Skype. 9 13 here on W GOP, maybe or somebody out there who's afraid to see a doctor during the pandemic. But D C says it's safe, discouraging people from skipping general treatment for health issues, DC health director Dr Luke Wandera Nesbitt is concerned that there's a 40% increase in what they call excess deaths that are non cove in 19 related.

Those less painful self administered tests are being offered places such as CVS pharmacies. Drive through tests supervised by a teller involve you being handed a kid doing the swab, putting it in a small container with fluid, dropping it in a box and driving away. Theis FDA.
