    The EPA under the Biden administration has banned the use of a pesticide called chlorpyrifos on food.  Studies have linked chlorpyrifos to neurological and hormonal imbalances due to their toxicity. The rule is an important protection for entire ecosystems, namely pollinators like bees and other endangered species.  It also protects the farmworkers who work with crops and children who consume these foods.  Farmworkers are heavily exposed to pesticides and are, as a whole, and underprotected population.  Virginia Ruiz, the Director of Occupational and Environmental Health for Farmworker Justice, has explained that “Each year pesticide exposure poisons as many as 20,000 farmworkers.” Meanwhile, children who consume even low levels of chlorpyrifos on foods like grapes, strawberries, and broccoli may be subject to neurodevelopmental defects.  Michal Freedhoff, the EPA’s top official for chemical safety and pollution prevention, told the Washington Post that the EPA’s decision “comes after more than a decade of science in which it became pretty clear that there were potential neurodevelopmental effects on children that were being observed at lower levels than people had previously thought.”  The...
    AS kids go back to school and Omicron is likely to hit the classrooms, every parent should know the signs of the variant. There are about 20 warning symptoms in adults that are popping up regularly, which are useful to know in children. 2Kids can show up slightly different symptoms compared to adults with OmicronCredit: Alamy But in kids there are a few specific extras that are worth being aware of, incase they need to have a test. Parents and doctors have reported children with runny noses, low grade fevers, croup, a cough and rashes. Dr Camilla Kingdon, president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, said: “I follow up our most high-risk preterm babies. “Most of them in my clinic have had Omicron in the last four weeks – or their families have – and none of them have come to any harm.  “In fact, most of the mothers are reporting a runny nose, a little bit off their feet and some low grade fever. “We need to watch this space but, from around the country at...

              by Laurel Duggan   Democrats were more than twice as likely as other voters to favor harsh government restrictions being placed on unvaccinated people’s lives, ranging from fines to loss of child custody, according to a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute. Forty-eight percent of Democratic voters said the government should be able to fine or imprison those who publicly question the COVID-19 vaccine’s efficacy, while only 27% of all voters supported the proposal, according to the poll results. Fines against those who refuse to take the vaccine were viewed favorably by 55% of Democratic voters and just 19% of Republicans, and 59% of Democrats favored a policy requiring unvaccinated people to stay inside their homes at all times, except for emergencies, the poll found. Seventy-nine percent of Republicans opposed a house arrest policy for unvaccinated people. Forty-five percent of Democratic respondents favored the government forcing people into “designated facilities” until they get the vaccine — a measure opposed by 71% of all voters. A government program using digital devices to track the movements of unvaccinated people and ensure that they are quarantined...

    Our folly comes at a high price. This issue gets the most attention when it comes to athletics. Names like Lia Thomas, Cece Telfer, and Fallon Fox are familiar to some sports fans. But the single most important job of one generation is to create the next generation. How can people who are confused about the definitions of “man” and “woman” make a new generation? What hope does a country have when its most educated and powerful people use terms like “birthing person” and the masses nod along in agreement like sheep? What is exceptional about a country in which headlines like “Transgender man gives birth after ‘Grindr one-night stand’ while transitioning” and “He gave birth. He breastfed. Now, he wants his son to see him as a man” run in major publications? How long does a civilization have before total collapse when the following quote is accepted as normal? “A month into pregnancy, Schade met his current husband, Jordan, 28.

    Children are extremely unlikely to die from COVID-19, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals. The agency's data shows that around 8.3 million children have contracted Covid and 841 have died since the pandemic began in March 2020. This means that children make up around 12 percent of cases and less than 0.1 percent of deaths in the U.S. The Census estimates that 22 percent of Americans are under the age of 18. Children under the age of five are especially unlikely to die, with 259 deaths being reported among the population that makes up six percent of Americans. It has long been known children do not suffer from Covid as badly as adults do. Previous studies have found that around half of cases among children are asymptomatic. Data from the CDC shows that children make up less than 0.1% of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. since the pandemic first began in March 2020.

    Dave Ramsey is a straight shooter about money matters. That's part of the reason — combined with his wisdom forged with experience — that millions of people listen to him on the radio every week and read his books. In his newest book, "Baby Steps Millionaires," he lays out clear steps for anyone to take when it comes to getting out of debt and building wealth — including young people. "Money is not good and money is not bad. It's amoral," Ramsey, CEO of Ramsey Solutions, said to Fox News Digital in a telephone interview on Tuesday, Jan. 18. 2022. "It's like a brick. You can build a hospital with a brick — or you can throw it through a window."  DAVE RAMSEY ON WHY ‘GET RICH QUICK’ DOESN'T WORK Ramsey added, "But what money does do with adults and with kids — including with grown kids — is it magnifies who we are, the good and the bad. So if you raise great kids to become great adults — people of character, people of integrity, people of emotional and...
    THOUSANDS of families will automatically be issued $1,504 in food stamps this week without having to sign up. The Georgia Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) began to issue the food stamps last Friday but there is still time to call and register if you haven't received the payment. 1NINTCHDBPICT000705876553Credit: Alamy The funds are to support families with children who are enrolled in Georgia schools to give help with groceries and food, according to the program’s website. It will provide extra help to families of more than 1.1million children who normally would receive free or reduced school meals through participation in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Programs. The food stamp program is part of the government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic and works in a similar way to the federal EBT program. Through P-EBT, eligible school children receive temporary emergency nutrition benefits loaded on EBT cards that are used to purchase food.  It is aimed at kids who didn't have access to free or reduced-price school meals during the last school year due to pandemic closures.

    A MUM-OF-8 has revealed exactly what daily chores look like when parenting eight kids. Mum Heather Bell shared the video on her TikTok account, justhtebells10, where it has been viewed over three million times. 3Heather, from the US, shared a look into her hectic life as a busy mum of eightCredit: @justthebells10/Tiktok Heather often shares what a hectic day looks like for her, but in one video some users questioned why she was taking on so much and why her older children couldn't share some of the responsibility of household tasks.

Heather's children are aged between 12-22, and she revealed that with eight drivers in the family their driveway often looks like a used car's lot.

The family even has lockers like in school to keep their barn clothes and hockey equipment in. Heather even shared that the family has an entire...

    DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend, “Dyanne,” and I recently had a baby conceived not long after we started dating. Jeanne Phillips  While I love my child with all my heart, Dyanne is constantly dropping hints that she wants an engagement ring or a “promise ring.” I understand why because she has explained her reasons. But she’s pressuring me to provide something I believe should come when I feel comfortable doing it. While some would say I don’t act like it, I’m traditional in some ways for a millennial. I believe that when I give someone a ring, it should be because I plan to marry her. I don’t consider marriage the way most do and think I can just get divorced and it’s no big deal.

    The state of Georgia experienced rare snowfall on Sunday, and many Georgians were eager to take advantage with outdoor activities like sledding.  In fact, some were so excited for the outdoor fun that it didn't even matter that none of the snow was actually sticking.

    Jon Cherry/Getty Images) New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait opined on Monday that it is time for progressives to come to terms with the fact that mass school closures throughout the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond were “catastrophic.” School closures of course resulted in mental health and other crises for young people, so much so that by early 2021, some were sounding the alarm about an increase in suicides among teens. Axios reported in February of 2021, “Hospitals have seen a significant increase in mental health emergencies among children, and federal officials have acknowledged that prolonged school closures have deprived students of both formal services and simple human interaction.” The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has even taken up the issue of prolonged school closures, noting: School closures carry high social and economic costs for people across communities. Their impact however is particularly severe for the most vulnerable and marginalized boys and girls and their families. The resulting disruptions exacerbate already existing disparities within the education system but also in other aspects of their lives....
    Marlon Bundo, the Pence family's pet rabbit who inspired multiple children's books, has died.    The sad news was announced on Saturday by former Vice President Mike Pence's daughter, Charlotte Pence Bond, on Twitter.  The bunny shot to fame when it became the main character in Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of a Vice President - written by Pence's daughter Charlotte and illustrated by his wife Karen and published in 2018. It aimed to teach children about the role of the VP by showing a day in his life through the eyes of BOTUS as he 'hops after 'Grampa' (Mike Pence)'.  Bundo even had his own Instagram account and earned the nickname BOTUS - or Bunny of the United States - during Pence's term as Vice President.  The Pences released another book featuring Marlon's adventures, entitled Best Christmas Ever in October 2019.  Marlon was also featured in Last Week Tonight's John Oliver's parody book A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo.

    Weaponising one’s children in any intra-family conflict is unseemly and cruel. To do so when the victim is your 95-year-old grandmother who has spent her entire life devoted to public service is a despicable new low. And, make no mistake, that is exactly what the prissy and petulant Duke of Woke is doing, with his massive strop and ill-advised legal challenge over the UK government’s decision to refuse him police protection when in Britain because he’s no longer a working royal - by choice, remember. In public, Prince Harry and Meghan are forever banging on about their love for the Queen. But like most virtue signalling, woketopian multi-millionaires, their woolly words are never followed up by good deeds. If Harry doesn’t get the security he wants, he is likely to attend her Platinum Jubilee celebrations alone, leaving Archie and Lilibet back in California with Meghan Harry is the polar opposite of his exceptional grandmother, who, throughout her reign, has kept her public pronouncements to a minimum and allowed herself to be judged by her actions. I believe the couple’s latest...
    From the Proud Boys to QAnon to anti-vaccine groups, far-right conspiracy theories are all blending together into one chunky soup of paranoia. Media Matters for America has been tracking the slow merge between "QAnon" conspiracy theorists and longtime anti-vaccination conspiracy theorists, and it's worth a read. The takeaway point is that anti-vax "leaders" have been quick to seize on the nation's new largest collection of gullibles, and have been increasingly given platforms by Q-centric hosts and events so as to explain to the nice weird people who believe that world elites are harvesting the blood of children that Actually, not getting polio has been a major part of this conspiracy all along. And yes, that includes disgraced researcher Andrew Wakefield, the fraud who invented much of modern anti-vax conspiracy movement in the first place. He's been looking for allies inside the "Q" movement and finding them. But a twist is that the antivax-QAnon relationship is a two way street; while QAnon audiences have been eager to hear from their anti-vax conspiracy comrades, Media Matters notes that the anti-vaccine leaders are themselves...
    What’s a power-hungry father to do when his wretched children start harboring fantasies of taking over his billion-dollar empire? If you’re Succession’s Logan Roy, the answer is to play them against one another—but if you’re Eli Gemstone, the looming mega-church leader at the center of The Righteous Gemstones, the answer might just be to break one of your kids’ thumbs. The similarities between these HBO cousins make themselves obvious from the jump: Brian Cox and John Goodman both play imposing patriarchs whose children have been raised to view the family business and the family itself as inextricable. As a result, both men are now stuck with broods so dysfunctional and incapable of teamwork that the idea of handing over the reins seems about as appealing as bankruptcy. Season 2 of Gemstones even goes so far as to introduce us to “Grandaddy Roy,” who spent his final years on the compound battling dementia and incontinence. Sound familiar? These series, which aired back-to-back during Gemstones’ debut season in 2019, make fascinating companion pieces; they’re two sides of a generational struggle for power...

    Whenever someone tells Jamie Chong that COVID-19 isn’t a serious threat to children, she reminds them that the common cold can send her child to the hospital. Her son, Asher, who is nearing his third birthday, has cerebral palsy and issues with his respiratory and gastrointestinal systems, putting him at higher risk from the coronavirus. Chong has been caring for him in their Simi Valley home during the pandemic and strictly limiting who can enter. Sometimes, when cases have surged, she has even decided to turn away his home nurses. “It’s scarier than it was even in the beginning,” Chong said. “When things were really bad before, kids weren’t going to school. People were working from home. Now they’re saying it’s way more contagious — and everything is open.” There’s the notion that “‘If you’re vulnerable, then you need to stay home.’ Well, we are doing that. But how much longer can we?” Chong asked. “My son deserves to live a life outside of his home.” Young children — those younger than 5 — are being newly hospitalized with COVID-19...
    (CNN)Birthdays are usually joyous occasions for Bonnie Wiener-Bambara, with daylong parties that involve pampering, dinner and friends.When she turned 47 on January 10, however, the festivities were practically nonexistent.There was good reason for the change in plans: The college professor in Patchogue, New York, has a 13-month-old daughter. Because there's no vaccine approved for babies that young, because cases of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 are rising precipitously across the United States, and because experts are once again recommending that people avoid gathering in groups, Wiener-Bambara didn't want to take any chances."It didn't feel much like a birthday," she said. "Since Christmas, my daughter Lily hasn't seen anyone except me and my husband, but her not getting sick is most important."Wiener-Bambara certainly isn't the only grown-up ditching plans to keep babies and toddlers safe right now.

    (CNN)We honor Martin Luther King's memory every January, but there are still so many things most people do not know about his life. For example, in his family and among his closest friends, he was known to be lighthearted and humorous. He made fun of his older sister for taking things too seriously, he always tried to lighten the mood and avoid confrontation. As a youth, he was a prankster who would hide behind a bush with his mother's furs tied to a stick, waiting to jump out at people as they walked past his childhood home. Anna Malaika TubbsHe was not some superhero but a real person who risked his life for a larger cause. He was a human being who, just like the rest of us, was influenced by his own experiences and shaped by the generations of family members who came before him, the city he was born in and most importantly, the mother who birthed him. All of us are shaped by our mothers to some extent, but in King's case, the presence of his...

    RICHMOND, Virginia — Newly inaugurated Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) promised to “remove politics from the classroom” in his inaugural address, pledging to take action on the education issues that propelled him to the Governor’s Mansion in Richmond. “We will remove politics from the classroom,” he declared, prompting likely the loudest applause of his entire speech. “I come to this office ready to lead and serve starting on day one,” he said, referencing his campaign theme of  “day one” reforms.  “We’ll start where the future is determined: in the classroom,” he said, vowing to “raise standards,” “teacher pay,” and invest in facilities and children with disabilities. Education became a dark horse issue against the Democrats in Virginia’s off-year gubernatorial election as parents became incensed with the prevalence of Marxist critical race theory indoctrination, wide-reaching transgender policies allowing boys to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms, and draconian coronavirus policies keeping children out of schools. Speaking to parents in Virginia, Youngkin said “we will empower you in the education of your children.” “Parents have a fundamental right to make decisions with...

    The heiress of one of the largest ranching dynasties in the state of Texas is suing her brother over a controlling stake in the 660,000-acre holdings of land that was  assembled over decades by their father, affectionately known a 'Big Daddy', former State Governor Dolph Briscoe Jr., who died in 2010.  One of his daughters, Cele Carpenter, 65, married a family of well-known Dallas business leaders and in the lawsuit is accuses her older brother, 68-year-old Dolph 'Chip' Briscoe III, of plotting to gain control over an inheritance that has valued at more than $1 billion.

    "Now, I recognize that some naysayers will dismiss such a policy as ghastly, even totalitarian. But my proposal is quite modest, a fusion of traditional philosophy and today’s most common political obsessions," Mathews writes. Some commenters hypothesize that in that sentence, the writer is channeling his inner Jonathan Swift – an Irish satirist who wrote a satirical essay titled "A Modest Proposal" that explored impoverished families selling their children as food to the wealthy. Mathews writes, "The left’s introduction of anti-racism and gender identity in schools faces a bitter backlash from parents." His answer to parents being against leftist ideologies being taught in schools: "Ending parenthood would end the backlash, helping dismantle white supremacy and outdated gender norms." The leftist writer explains how abolishing parenthood would benefit Democrats. "Democrats also would have the opportunity to build a new pillar of the safety net — a child-raising system called 'Foster Care for All,'" he says. The writer vilifies Republicans, claiming they "take immigrant children from their parents and put them in border concentration camps." He asserts that abolishing...

But there have only been 171 of them, with a study finding just one out of 55 needed intensive care because of a high fever. It is in line with a string of hugely positive studies which found Omicron is milder than other strains in the vaccinated - with the first official UK report revealing the risk of hospitalisation is 50 to 70 per cent lower than...
    During Wednesday’s edition of his podcast, Joe Rogan denied that myocarditis – an inflammation of the heart muscle – is more commonly a side effect in children who have had Covid-19 than it is in children who have had the Covid-19 vaccine. He was immediately fact-checked by his guest Josh Szeps, who said the opposite is actually true. After not believing Szeps, Rogan had his producer look up the information to confirm. Szeps was correct. Here’s their exchange: ROGAN: For young boys in particular, there’s an adverse risk associated with the vaccine. There’s like a two- to fourfold increase in the instances of myocarditis versus hospitalization. SZEPS: You know that there’s an increased risk in myocarditis among that age cohort from getting Covid as well – which exceeds the risk of myocarditis from the vaccine. ROGAN: I don’t think that’s true. It don’t think it’s true. SZEPS: It is. ROGAN: No, no, no. I don’t think it’s true that there’s an increased risk of myocarditis from people catching Covid that are young, versus increased risk of myocarditis from the vaccine....

    KEEPING your children safe at home is one of parents most important concerns.  But safety requirements change as children get older so it’s important to ensure your home is safe at every stage of their growth.  3Kirsty explained that it's important to put the child in their cot on their back and without any loose blanketsCredit: Getty Parent consultant Kirsty Ketley revealed babies and young children are naturally curious so seeing things through the eyes of a child is important.  The qualified Early Years Practitioner, who shares her tips on her website, said in the UK, more than one million children end up in hospital each year due to accidents within the home, with the most at risk being children under 5.  That said, she advised parents to remember there are risks for all age groups, so regular assessments as your child grows are key. Kirsty, who has more than 20 years' experience working with families, said: “I am a qualified Early Years and parent consultant, based in Surrey. Safety is always important.  “It’s important to see things through the...
    USA Today was forced to delete a series of tweets after the paper was blasted for  trying to 'normalize' pedophilia by saying it is 'misunderstood' and a condition 'determined in the womb.' On Monday, USA Today published an article by Alia E. Dastagir titled 'What the public keeps getting wrong about pedophilia,' where the national correspondent cited researchers who study pedophilia and say it is a misunderstood term that describes an attraction to minors, not an action. The article also claimed that pedophilia is a condition that is developed in the womb. 'Not all people who sexually abuse children are pedophiles,' Dastagir wrote. 'Some pedophiles never abuse children, experts say, and some people who sexually abuse children do not sexually prefer them, but use them as a surrogate for an adult partner. They may be disinhibited and anti-social, with impulse control problems.'  The article quoted James Cantor, a clinical psychologist, sex researcher and former editor-in-chief of Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment. He told the reporter: 'The evidence suggests it is inborn. It's neurological. Pedophilia is...
    Getty Gleb Savchenko and girlfriend Elena Belle. “Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer Gleb Savchenko has responded to comments made in reports regarding custody of his children and his divorce. It was first reported by People that Savchenko’s ex-wife, Elena Samodanova, was requesting primary custody of the couple’s children based on a number of factors, per court documents obtained by the outlet. In an email to Heavy, Savchenko addressed some of the information from the court reports, which he says is false or misrepresented.Savchenko Will Not Be Joining Another DWTS Show View this post on Instagram A post shared by Gleb Savchenko (@glebsavchenkoofficial) The court documents stated that Samodanova wanted custody of the children because of Savchenko’s busy schedule, which, according to the documents (per People), were set to include filming “Dancing With the Stars” and then going on the tour, “conducting a dance camp in Mexico and being a judge on an upcoming season of the Swedish version of ‘DWTS’.” Those statements, according to Savchenko, are not accurate. “To clarify, my DWTS tour schedule runs from...
    The omicron variant of the coronavirus is not the most prevalent virus spreading in Colorado schools, according to a medical official in the state.  Dr. Reginald Washington, the chief medical officer at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, says the Respiratory Syncytial Virus is spreading more among children in and around the Denver area than the coronavirus.  "RSV is very contagious and very prevalent in the school system as well as throughout daycare centers and in homes. So RSV is certainly the winner," Washington said, according to KDVR.  Young mother of small hospitalized girl talking to doctor in hospital, midsection.

    Priscilla Ann Salais, 37, is charged with two counts of endangering a child, kept her head down as she was taken into custody Tuesday The step-grandmother of two young children has been arrested after a one-year-old girl was found hogtied and beaten while her two-year-old brother was discovered soiled and locked in a cage at her Texas home.  Priscilla Ann Salais, 37, who is charged with two counts of endangering a child, kept her head down as she was taken into custody Tuesday, telling reporters the information being released was 'bull****' and that they needed to 'get their facts straight.'  San Antonio Police Chief William McManus appeared distressed as he described the gruesome scene at a press conference.  'What she did to these children is unforgivable,' McManus said. Police say a witness called 911 on Sunday afternoon to perform a welfare check at the residence at 400 block of Bailey Avenue near Rigsby Avenue in Highland Park, San Antonio.  Authorities forced their way into the bedroom at the house to find the girl hogtied; with her wrists and ankles were bound,...

    I am 72 years old. When I was in kindergarten my best friend, “Mark,” moved away. At age 16 or 17, he and an accomplice shot and killed two police officers in an eastern city. The officers were at their hotel room to investigate the stolen credit card they had used to pay for the room. Mark and his accomplice were subsequently killed in a shootout with the police after a high-speed chase. These juvenile offenders were, of course, just children, right? Newspapers of the day referred to them as teenage “hit men,” who were part of a Murder Incorporated-style criminal organization that groomed and paid juveniles to kill off their enemies. To this day, adult criminal gang members use juveniles to do things for them like carry their weapons. They do this because they know that if juveniles get caught, they will likely just get released, or will only serve a short sentence in a juvenile correctional facility. (Unlike a convicted felon who could do years in prison for possession of a firearm). There is a well intended but...
    End-times cult leader Chad Daybell's attempt to cover his tracks with a text message actually led to his arrest and that of his wife Lori Vallow on suspicion of murdering her two children, a new book, exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com, reveals.  He had sent the text to his then-wife Tammy saying he had shot and burned a raccoon, but when a cop saw the message months later he realized something was wrong. Raccoons are nocturnal, Detective Ron Ball of Rexburg Police Department in Idaho reasoned — but the text had been sent at 11.35 am, writes author John Glatt in his book The Doomsday Mother. Ball called in the FBI's Cellular Analysis Survey Team (CAST) to analyze the text and others based on cell phone tracking data pinging off local cell masts and when they did, the whole case started to unravel. And rather than finding a burned raccoon, cops found the charred body of Lori's 17-year-old daughter Tylee Ryan in a shallow grave in the backyard.  Lori Vallow and doomsday evangelist husband Chad Daybell were charged on multiple counts including...
    Sprawling quarantine camps with rows upon rows of cramped metal boxes to house people suspected of having Covid-19 have sprung up in China, social media videos show. The Communist country is attempt to eradicate the virus despite warnings that the more infectious Omicron variant makes a Zero Covid strategy impossible, even with the draconian measures used by Beijing.   There are now a total of 20million people confined to their homes in China after the cities of Anyang and Yuzhou joined the 13million in Xi'an under quarantine and banned from leaving their home even to buy food.   Anyang, home to 5.5 million people, was locked down late Monday after two cases of the omicron variant were reported - and some residents of locked-down cities have told the BBC that they were part of a 'big transfer' of thousands of people to the camps. Pregnant women, children and the elderly are believed to be among those sent to the Xi'an camps, with insiders sharing the horrors of their detention in the Zero Covid state. Footage widely shared online shows people in the...
    The debate over whether schools should be in-person or remote is reaching new levels of willful ridiculousness. Recent days have seen another round of “I am absolutely, I promise, really a liberal, but school closures have me rethinking everything” articles thanks to Politico and The Atlantic. There are two distinct problems with these (redacted) takes. One problem comes if you take them on their own terms—more about that later. The other problem is that they’re irrelevant to what is going on with schools now. Schools around the country are going remote, but it’s not because of anything you’ll encounter in the “my kids’ schools shouldn’t have been closed in 2020-2021 and therefore I am disenchanted with Democrats” takes. It's because the current levels of COVID-19 in this country—thanks to omicron and a population that’s just, like, tired of the pandemic and wearing masks and not going to bars—are so high that many schools cannot remain open. In many places where schools are technically open, they’re basically warehousing kids in what Josh Marshall perceptively described as “COVID perseverance theater in the classroom.” Marshall was talking about something close...
    "Right now, we have 82,843 children sick with COVID; more than a 1,000 children have died from the virus. In addition, about 7.8 million children have caught COVID since the pandemic started, and so those are just the numbers, and so, while fewer than 83,000 kids have been hospitalized with the virus, we have kids sick with COVID more than we ever have before, and so that’s a real thing and those are real numbers." The View's Sunny Hostin says even though Justice Sotomayor was wrong on the facts, she was still right on the facts "That's a real thing and those are real numbers."pic.twitter.com/7XWbtFGfFj — Caleb Howe (@Caleb Howe) 1641839238 Anything else?Liberals failed to extend the same charity and grace that Hostin extended Sotomayor to Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch was blasted last Friday for allegedly claiming that "hundreds of thousands" of people die from the seasonal flu each year. The official Supreme Court transcript confirmed the remark. However, audio of Gorsuch clearly showed that he said "hundreds, thousands" — and the word "of" was not uttered. Despite...
    The Biden administration continues its efforts to get children back in the classroom. More than 5,000 schools across the country pivoted to virtual instruction last week because of COVID-19 cases and resulting staffing shortages, according to Burbio, which tracks school reopening trends. Republican lawmakers are claiming that Democratic mismanagement and subservience to "special interests" are responsible for the closures. However, statistics show that the school closures were the result of the fast-spreading omicron variant of the coronavirus and the schools' own responses to the resulting staffing shortages. And the words and actions of the Biden administration have demonstrated continuing efforts to get children back in school. "The science is clear: children belong in the classroom," Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), a rumored candidate for president in 2024, tweeted Monday. "Democrats are setting science aside and caving to special interests." "Joe Biden promised the country would not 'shut down,' but: thousands of flights are being canceled, office buildings are empty, Democrat politicians are trying to close schools," the Republican National Committee posted on Twitter last week....
