    A representative of South Africa called President Joe Biden's travel ban 'unfair' and urged the United States to share more of its vaccine supply as the Omicron variant of COVID spreads around the world. 'We feel that the travel ban is very unfair,' Xolisa Mabhongo, the deputy permanent representative of South Africa to the United Nations told CNN's New Day Tuesday morning. 'South African science should be commended for discovering this new variant and sharing the information with the world.'  The United States travel ban went into affect on Monday. Biden argued the ban would buy scientists time to learn more about Omicron, which the World Health Organization said is highly transmissible and a 'variant of concern.' The president also argued the best protection against Omicron is being fully vaccinated, getting the booster shot and wearing a face mask. The CDC has expanded booster guidelines to include all adult Americans.  But Stephane Bancel, chief executive at vaccine maker Moderna, warned it will take months to develop an Omicron-specific booster, possibly to summer 2022.   Xolisa Mabhongo, the deputy permanent representative of...
    Nurses have whiplash after they are face scrutiny from their families and employers for refusing the vaccine just months after they were showered with praise for risking their health while working through the COVID-19 pandemic.   'A year ago I was a hero, and now I'm being treated like scum,' said Becca Pitt, a 21-year-old nursing assistant in Indiana who intends to fall pregnant within three years and holds fears about the vaccine's potential effects on her fertility - 'we don't know the side effects.' She and two other nurses, one who questions the speed at which the vaccine was produced and another who worries that the jab will affect the quality of her breastmilk, spoke frankly with Suzy Weiss about their recasting as villains since the vaccine became available.  All of them recalled falling ill with COVID during a period where most were quarantining at home while they were deemed 'essential,' and some pointed out the 'absurdity' of being forced to vaccinate when natural immunity is 27 times more effective than vaccinated immunity in preventing COVID infection, according to the largest...
    Health officials are on high alert looking for any U.S. cases of the newly identified omicron variant of COVID-19."It's inevitable that sooner or later it's going to spread widely because it has at least the molecular characteristics of being highly transmissible," said Dr. Anthony Fauci."This variant is a cause for concern, not a cause for panic," said President Biden.The president addressed the American public on the day his administration instituted a travel ban for most non-U.S. citizens coming from several countries in Africa.While a ban can't stop the spread, Fauci said it can buy scientists time to assess the omicron variant's threat to different people."There are those who have not been vaccinated. There are those who have been vaccinated and there are those who have been infected and recovered. So, the real question is how does this particular virus affect with regard to severity," he said.EMBED More News Videos While the new omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus has not yet been detected in the United States, it will "inevitably" arrive, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.

    (CNN)The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strengthened recommendations for booster doses of coronavirus vaccine Monday, saying all adults should get boosted six months after the second dose of Pfizer/BioNTech's or Moderna's vaccine or two months after the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.It's a slight but significant tweak to the wording of guidance issued earlier this month when the CDC endorsed an expanded emergency use authorization for boosters from the US Food and Drug Administration."Today, CDC is strengthening its recommendation on booster doses for individuals who are 18 years and older," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a statement."The recent emergence of the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters, and prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19," she added. The booster question is now much simpler than before"Early data from South Africa suggest increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant, and scientists in the United States and around the world are urgently examining vaccine effectiveness related to this variant.

    President Joe Biden will not be booting out any unvaccinated federal workers until after the holiday season, a new Monday report reveals. The move hasn't been publicly announced yet but was written in a memo to government agencies by the White House's Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and obtained by ABC. The directive allows agencies to pause on firing or suspending workers after Biden ordered all federal government employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 22. According to OMB, 92 percent of federal workers already have at least one dose.   Of the 3.5 million federal employees, 96.5 percent have complied with the mandate, meaning they are vaccinated or had their exemption approved. About 4.5 percent - more than 157,000 people - sought exemptions or were already exempt and about 3.5 percent haven't shown a record of vaccination nor sought an exemption.   The OMB news broke just before Biden addressed the nation on Monday over the highly contagious new Omicron coronavirus variant The percentage of federal workers vaccinated is far higher than the national average of roughly 70 percent RELATED...

    Only in the bizarre, upside-down world that is the modern media landscape could a trial over the shooting of three white men by another white man become a referendum on racial justice. Corporate American media managed to pull off exactly that feat in the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, convincing vast swathes of America that Rittenhouse had shot black men, that he was a card-carrying white supremacist or that he fired indiscriminately into a crowd of unsuspecting peaceful protesters. When Rittenhouse was found not guilty by a jury of his peers after weeks of tense arguments and deliberations in the courtroom, reaction was divided largely along the lines of media consumption habits. Those who read and watched non-partisan, independent or right-of-center media were largely unsurprised after seeing the facts of the case presented during the trial. Many of those who keep up with the news via corporate media and progressive sources were, by contrast, shocked and appalled. How could such a blatant white supremacist murder go unpunished? Was it a corrupt judge who honored veterans in the courtroom at fault? Was...

    Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) claimed on Sunday that President Joe Biden‘s Covid vaccine policy has “made it more difficult in rural states like Mississippi to get more and more people vaccinated.” During the interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Reeves underscored his support for the vaccine — mentioning that he publicly received his shots — but slammed any type of mandate. “I actually took my shots on Facebook Live, and I don’t like shots very much, Chuck,” Reeves said. “But that was my way in which of telling the people of Mississippi that I think this is the best way for you to protect yourselves but I also believe in individual liberties, and I believe in freedoms, and I believe individuals can make their own decision what’s best for them after they talk to their physician.” Reeves took issue with Biden’s vaccine policy, which would require businesses with more than 100 employees to mandate vaccinations or require weekly Covid testing. The implementation of the rule was paused by a federal appeals court, and the Biden administration has challenged the move....

Police say both officers were taken to a local hospital and their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. It’s unknown if any arrests have been made. Further details are not yet available.
    The silence by the FBI over whether it has recovered the gun used by Brian Laundrie to kill himself and why investigators did not reveal that he had a weapon in the first place has led to a backlash against the feds for not warning the public that Gabby Petito's deranged fiance was armed and dangerous during his month-long manhunt. Laundrie's body was found in Florida's Carlton Reserve on Oct. 20 and an autopsy Tuesday revealed that he died of a single bullet wound to the head. His family's lawyer Steve Bertolino told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that one of the family's guns was missing when Laundrie vanished on Sept. 13, but that the feds kept it secret because they didn't want the public to panic. While Laundrie's family was uncertain of the missing weapon's make and model, Bertolino said that it was definitely a pistol, and that the family definitely reported it missing. 'I don't know if [law enforcement] would mention that at the beginning - they found a body, they found possessions, that was it,' he said of the...
    Ahmaud Arbery’s father reacted to the guilty verdict of the three men involved in his son’s murder Wednesday, proclaiming “all lives matter.” “For real, all lives matter,” Marcus Arbery told the media following the guilty verdicts. “Not just black children, we don’t want to see nobody go through this. I don’t want to see no daddy watch their kid get left and shot down like that. So it’s all our problem.” Arbery, a 25-year old black man, was shot and killed in Brunswick, Georgia on Feb. 23, 2020, when three men attempted to carry out a citizen’s arrest by chasing and cornering Arbery in two pickup trucks. “Let’s keep fighting, let’s keep doing it and making this place a better place for all human beings,” Arbery said. “All human beings, everybody. Love everybody. All human beings need to be treated equally … today is a good day.” The media seeks to divide us all up via identity politics when the reality is almost all parents feel exactly what Arbery’s dad said today: pic.twitter.com/nL3wxQnkGz — Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) November 24, 2021...

On February 23, 2020, Arbery, 25, was jogging through Brushwick, Georgia when he was confronted by Gregory, 65, and Travis, 35, McMichael who claimed he was a suspect in a series of alleged local break-ins.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) — In due time, Klay Thompson is counting on more 37-point quarters and other scoring outbursts from himself, like the time he made 14 3-pointers in a game. Not that the Golden State Warriors star is “a numbers guy” the way he used to be, before a pair of devastating injuries.

    Not profiteering. Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation. We can talk about all those things in the abstract, look at the numbers and statistics, and catch the occasional whiff of seditionist right-wing rhetoric. But I hadn’t really fully understood just how horrifying that combination of right-wing extremism, Facebook, and a killer virus was until I became a regular at the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. This series will document some of those stories, so we are aware of what the other side is doing to our country.

    MIAMI (AP) — An attorney for the family of Brian Laundrie said Tuesday that he fatally shot himself in the head. Laundrie had been the subject of a manhunt for more than a month as investigators searched for clues in the slaying of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito, during their cross-country van trip together. Attorney Steve Bertolino said in a statement that Laundrie’s parents have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, and the manner of death was suicide. “Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families,” Bertolino said. Found in a Florida nature preserve, Laundrie’s skeletal remains were positively identified last month using dental records. The discovery of the remains concluded a massive search involving federal, state and local law enforcement that began shortly after Laundrie disappeared Sept. 14, two weeks after the 23-year-old returned alone to his parents’ home in North Port, Florida. The investigation into Petito’s slaying, however, has not yet concluded. But only Laundrie...
    Friday night, ESPN took about five minutes from their NBA Countdown pregame show to address the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict. During the conversation, former NBA player and current ESPN star Jalen Rose claimed Jacob Blake is dead. He was quickly corrected on the broadcast, but the false comment went viral on social media and sparked outrage by many, including Outkick founder Clay Travis. “Here’s the thing, the Black Lives Matter protest was actually taking place because Jacob Blake was shot and killed by police officers,” Rose said, referring to the protest where Rittenhouse went and fatally shot two men in Kenosha, WI. Rose was corrected by his NBA Countdown host Mike Greenberg, who interjected to say “he was not killed, Jacob Blake was not killed, but he was shot multiple times.” “Jacob Blake was shot seven times by law enforcement,” Rose added on the NBA pregame show. While the topic might not seem like a fit for a sports show, the NBA has been outspoken on social issues, especially ones that occurred during 2020. But if an ESPN show decides to...
