ESPN reporter Allison Williams leaving network over COVID-19 vaccine mandate

ESPN reporter Allison Williams is leaving the network over her decision not to get a COVID-19 vaccine, Williams said Friday on Instagram.

Disney, ESPNís parent company, has implemented a coronavirus mandate for all employees that will go into effect Thursday. Williams said last month that she was unvaccinated and planned to remain that way while she and her husband were trying to have a second child.


The CDC has said that pregnant women can safely receive any of the three coronavirus vaccines available to Americans. An overwhelming majority of medical experts and health organizations have determined that the vaccine has no impact on fertility.

How bad is the media? 90,000 preventable deaths vs the made up Timmy will get no toys for Xmas story

COVID-19 continues to be a leading cause of death in the U.S. in September 2021

Kaiser: 90,000 deaths from Covid-19 over the past four months were entirely preventable
COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death across most of 2020, but in December 2020 and early 2021, the illness surged and briefly became the number one leading cause of death in the U.S., far surpassing even cancer and heart disease deaths in those months.

With the rapid uptake in vaccinations in the months when vaccines first became widely available, COVID-19 deaths fell sharply. COVID-19 dropped to the number 7 leading cause of death in the U.S. in July 2021.

However, with the more infectious COVID-19 Delta variant, insufficient vaccination rates, and local and state governments easing up social distancing restrictions, COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths increased again. Vaccination rates are particularly lagging for younger adults and people living in certain states. As of October 7, 2021, about 78% of adults (ages 18+) in the U.S. have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and over 50 million adults remain unvaccinated.


Christmas Toys Shortage Fears As Pandemic Disrupts Global Supply (BIDEN'S FAULT NO DOUBT)

Christmas may still be months away, but infrastructure experts and retailers are reportedly already bracing themselves over potential shortages this festive season.

The Marine Exchange of Southern California, which Newsweek has contacted for comment, has noted in its September 15 update how 61 container ships are anchored offshore.

This record number is being forced to wait in line for a week or even longer, to dock and then offload their cargo at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

House Jan. 6 committee hears testimony from Trump's final attorney general, subpoenas his deputy

Eight hours of closed-door testimony Wednesday!

Jeffrey Rosen, the acting attorney general in the tumultuous final days of the Trump administration, sat for eight hours of closed-door testimony Wednesday with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol siege, The Washington Post and Politico report, each citing two people familiar with the meeting. Rosen appeared before the committee voluntarily, and he explained his notes about events leading up to the Jan. 6 riot and testified about the steps the Justice Department took to counter the attack on the Capitol, the Post reports.

The Jan. 6 panel also reportedly asked Rosen about his interactions with Jeffrey Clark, the former acting head of the DOJ's civil division and, according to emails and previous testimony, a key ally of President Trump in his efforts to stop President Biden from taking office. The committee wanted to know which of Clark's allies were inside the Justice Department and which were outside of the government, the Post reports.

The Jan. 6 committee also subpoenaed Clark on Wednesday, requesting documents and an in-person deposition by Oct. 29. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said his committee needs to "understand Mr. Clark's role" in the "efforts inside the previous administration to delay the certification of the 2020 election and amplify misinformation about the election results," including "who was involved across the administration."

Why do some people in Florida want the virus to spread and the pandemic to continue?

When I saw MSNBC this AM they were talking about the C-19 case #s dropping in the state
so some school districts are now going to drop the mask mandates. Another 1 or 2 months
of having mask mandates could be a big help in controlling* this disease and not giving the
virus new hosts where they might mutate into a new strains and then the whole cycle might
start again.

* Sadly thanx to the anti mask, anti science, anti vaccine idiots, and just basic biology I think we
have lost the chance "to put this thing" behind us and we will be living and sometimes dying from
this virus for a very long time.
