“I don’t believe every pediatrician will accept the FDA’s guidance so readily.
It’s not easy to place an intravenous line to administer remdesivir in the tiny vein of an irritable baby coming from home with a positive rapid test. And then do it again the next day. And the day after that.
At some point, clinicians’ sensibilities will be challenged enough to compel them to actually examine how the FDA arrived at its conclusions. ” Madhava Setty, M.D.

Contact tracing is no longer required for those who test positive for CoVid unless they are in specific communities deemed to be high risk, such as prisons or nursing homes.
The latest update at the CDC official website explains the rationale behind the newest policy
“At the onset of the pandemic, STLT health departments aimed to investigate and contact trace every case of COVID-19. The goal was to reduce transmission of COVID-19 by
- (1) identifying each case and rapidly isolating the infected person; and
- (2) reaching out and recommending quarantine to every person who had been in close contact with the case.” ~From “Prioritizing Case Investigation and Contact Tracing for COVID-19
The CDC has been routinely updating its guideline since COVID came on the international scene over 2 years ago. Some other notable guideline changes are:
Quarantine times should be shortened to five days in response to recent data which suggests that the newest strain, Omnicron, has an incubation period of just 3 days.
Mask Mandates are being lifted in a variety of places.
Vaccines are no longer thought by the CDC to be effective at preventing COVID in and of themselves. To date, at least three shots are recommended despite promises by the Biden administration that one shot would be sufficient and would prevent mask mandates.
BANÍ, Dominican Republic (LifeSiteNews) —According to one of the Dominican Republic’s Catholic Bishops, the American embassy has recently issued the following warning to legislators in the Bishop’s Island nation:
“If they don’t legalize abortion and write LGBT protections into law, they’re gonna be without visas,” ~Bishop to the Domincan Republic, Bishop Victor Masalles
Bishop Víctor Masalles announced that the pressure the Dominican Republic is facing to legalize abortion is intense.
The Bishop maintained that his “government knows the Congress is pro-life, and that’s a beautiful thing,” Nonetheless:
“The president of the Senate [and] the president of the representatives” have been put on notice by the U.S. that they need to liberalize their laws or face diplomatic sanctions such as the loss of visas.” according to Massalles.
“Agencies involved with foreign aid, assistance, and development programs shall expand their ongoing efforts to ensure regular Federal Government engagement with governments, citizens, civil society, and the private sector to promote respect for the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons and combat discrimination,” President Joe Biden ordered. “And “[w]hen foreign governments move to restrict the rights of LGBTQI+ persons or fail to enforce legal protections in place, thereby contributing to a climate of intolerance, agencies engaged abroad shall consider appropriate responses, including using the full range of diplomatic and assistance tools and, as appropriate, financial sanctions, visa restrictions, and other actions.”
However, a provision in U.S. law called the Siljander Amendment, which has been renewed every year since 1981 in the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, bans the use of any U.S. funds to lobby for (or against) abortion abroad. Pro-life American legislators and lobby groups have long complained the Siljander Amendment is not well-enforced and have called for it to be applied more broadly.
In 2018, nine U.S. senators asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for an end to public funding to two organizations promoting abortion in Latin America, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and the Inter-American Commission on Women (Comisión Interamericana sobre la Mujer — CIM).
On March 26, 2022, there will be a pro-life car caravan demonstration on the island nation. March 25 is a national day for the unborn child, Bishop Masalles noted.
And powerful foreign elites pour millions of dollars into legalizing abortion in the Dominican Republic annually, he said.
On February 19th, President Volodymyr Zelensky of the Ukraine addressed the Munich Security Conference regarding the crisis in his country. Below are some of the biggest take-a-ways from his speech. Read the full transcript here.
“What do attempts at appeasement lead to”?
“I hope no one thinks of Ukraine as a convenient and eternal buffer zone between the West and Russia. This will never happen. Nobody will allow that. Otherwise – who’s next? Will NATO countries have to defend each other”?
“Three years ago, it was here that Angela Merkel said: ‘Who will pick up the wreckage of the world order? Only all of us, together.’ The audience gave a standing ovation. But, unfortunately, the collective applause did not grow into collective action.
There have been 1 million COVID-vaccine injuries now reported on CDC’s database
Senator: ‘When will federal agencies start being transparent with Americans?’Ron Johnson, Senator from Wisconsin
The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, known as VAERS, reports that as of Dec. 24, there were 21,002 COVID vaccine deaths and 110,609 hospitalizations along with a total of 1,000,227 COVID vaccine adverse events. The figures are summarized on the independent site OpenVAERS.
However, many physicians and scientists believe the true figures are much higher. Read the full story here:
Just two days before Christmas, Dr. Scott Jensen was put on notice by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice,
“And last night, when I got home after shopping with the grandchildren, I have this letter from the board of medical practice,”
“You indicated that you’ve prescribed ivermectin to some of your patients for treatment of COVID-19. Pursuant to the board’s investigation of this matter, please provide the following records … copies of medical records for the most recent three to five patients to whom you’ve prescribed ivermectin to treat COVID-19.”
Citing the Physician Accountability Act, the board demanded that it “have access to hospital and medical records of a patient treated by the physician under review if the patient signs a written consent permitting such access. If no consent form has been signed, the hospital or physician shall first delete data in the record which identifies the patient before providing it to the board.”
“Our largest local school district just voted to pay people differently, not on merit, or by the content of their character, but based solely on the color of their skin,”State Rep. Jeremy Munson (R-MN)
According to Biz Pac Review, The Mankato School Board in Minnesota voted unanimously to pay non-white teachers “additional stipends” based only on their race, Native American, hispanic, black and all other minorities were invited to apply for the position of mentors, to earn extra money.
But somehow, this act of inclusion has eliminated the majority of teachers. That’s because, the mentoring opportunity is closed to all white teachers. So while minorites are afforded the opportunity to make some extra money on the side, Caucasian teachers are not eligible for these perks.
The reason? It’s simple. They are white, therefore they should not be allowed the same opportunity as their non-white colleagues.

(LifeSiteNews) – The School District of Palm Beach County has dropped its mask mandate. The district had previously suspended a second grader 38 times for violating the mandate. She may have to repeat the grade.
Fiona Lashells is a student in Palm Beach County who just turned 8 years old. She took a stand against a school board policy that she believed was wrong. For months she did not wear a mask to school, even though it had been mandated by her local school board. The litany of suspensions she has been handed is available at a website her mother created outlining the experience.
At a school board event on September 22, 2021, Fiona told the board members that being suspended is “not going to change” her mind, that she still has “the right not to wear a mask,” and that it is “not fair” that she is “getting punished because … the school board is not following the law.”
She also told the school board that she hoped “they all go to jail” for “doing this” to her.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has battled with various school boards in his state which have mandated masks for students. He signed an executive order in July that prohibited mask mandates in schools. After facing legal action from proponents of mandated masking, Florida’s ban on school mask mandates was upheld by a federal judge on September 15, with the court standing firm by rejecting an appeal to reconsider on September 30.
In an effort to allow parents to have the ultimate decision on whether their children will wear masks at school, DeSantis’ administration opted to withhold funds from boards that require students to mask in spite of the government order. At its October 7 meeting, the Florida Board of Education (BOE) unanimously agreed to impose financial penalties for school districts mandating students wear masks.
Fiona made headlines last week as her story was brought to light in a number of major news outlets, including The New York Post. She appeared alongside DeSantis on Fox News and explained to the hosts that she does not like to wear a mask “because you touch it and you have germs on your hands and then you put it on your face and breathe in all the germs.”
One of the Fox News hosts called her stance against the mandate “impressive” and asked Fiona how she felt about the prospect of repeating the second grade. She expressed that she did not want to do that, especially considering she had “done most of the work at home” that she was assigned.
Fiona was visibly shy during the interview, but DeSantis helped her through the question period when she was asked about “how her friends felt” about masking in school. She said that her friends wore them at school because they had to, but did not like them.
After national media pressure and pressure from the DeSantis administration, the School District of Palm Beach County released a letter to the public explaining its decision to drop their mandatory mask requirement. The board described the change as a “face covering opt-out” for parents.
The letter referenced a ruling by Division of Administrative Hearings Judge Newman which came down on Friday as the legal reason behind their change of heart. Judge Newman upheld the DeSantis administration’s block on masking children against their parents’ will.
Vaccinating children would be committing the Original Antigenic Sin.
(LifeSiteNews) — Most of us know by now — despite the efforts of the legacy media and the Biden administration to hide the fact — that the China virus poses virtually zero risk to kids. The vast majority of children who contract it will come down with no more than the sniffles, if they show any symptoms at all.
Even better, once they are exposed to it, their immune systems will ever after be alert not only for the original invader, but for nearly all of the variants that it spins off over time. This robust immunity will probably last their entire lives. After all, the survivors of the much more deadly Spanish Flu of 1918–19 came away with life-long immunity.
