    The Biden administration has launched a task force to respond to future COVID-19 variants. The Biden administration is taking several steps to address the latest wave of COVID-19, including the creation of a response team designed to head off possible future variants of the coronavirus. Experts say the month of February will likely be "tough" in terms of omicron, though there are signs that the wave may be peaking as reported infections and hospitalizations slow. Health officials are simultaneously concerned about future variants developing and groups like the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control continue to monitor the ever-changing situation. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, meanwhile, has made moves to address the crisis, recently launching the Pandemic Innovation Task Force, which is focused on developing treatments, vaccines, testing, and other tools to respond to variants that may appear within six months to two years. Eric Lander, who serves as President Joe Biden's science adviser, leads the group along with Dawn O'Connell, assistant secretary for...
    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson defied calls to resign in a feisty performance Wednesday in Parliament – but it may be too little to prevent a push by his Conservative Party's lawmakers to oust him over a series of lockdown-flouting government parties.  Pressure on the prime minister grew as one Conservative lawmaker defected to the opposition Labour Party and a former Conservative Cabinet minister told him: "In the name of God, go!"  The demand from former Brexit Secretary David Davis came during a combative Prime Minister's Questions session in the House of Commons, where Johnson defended his government's record in running the economy, fighting crime and dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.  BORIS JOHNSON DENIES LYING ABOUT LOCKDOWN PARTIES AMID COVID PANDEMIC   In this screenshot taken from video, Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, London, Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2022.

    Republican leaders and concerned parents spoke Tuesday about issues, such as remote learning and forced masking of children, that they believe are becoming increasingly detrimental to students’ academic development and mental health. Education and Labor Committee ranking member Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) opened the discussion, which took place at a roundtable in House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) office at the U.S. Capitol, by highlighting what she perceived to be a “bureaucracy first, students last mentality” resulting in endless school closures in some parts of the country. “Parents are fed up, and so am I. Parents are making their voices heard though,” Foxx said. “They are showing up at school board meetings and pushing back against the teachers’ unions keeping their children out of school. This parent revolution is signaling a new era in education.” Watch: One activist parent from a suburb in Cook County, where Chicago is located, detailed during the roundtable the negative impacts she witnessed of school closures on her children. “As far as virtual learning, I think it was really dystopian for our family,” Beth...
    By Deidre McPhillips | CNN Both vaccination and prior infection help protect against new Covid-19 infections, but vaccination protects against hospitalization significantly more than natural immunity from prior infection alone, according to a study published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers analyzed the risk of Covid-19 infection and hospitalization among four groups of individuals: vaccinated with and without prior infection and unvaccinated with and without prior infection. The study case data from about 1.1 million cases in California and New York between the end of May and mid-November 2021. Hospitalization data was available from California only. Overall, Covid-19 case and hospitalization rates were highest among unvaccinated people who did not have a previous diagnosis. At first, those with a prior infection had higher case rates than those who were vaccinated with no history of prior infection. As the Delta variant became predominant in the US in later months, this shifted and people who survived a previous infection had lower case rates than those who were vaccinated alone, according to the study. “Experts first looked at...

    Fox Sports host Skip Bayless isn’t sure Dak Prescott’s apology to NFL officials will be enough to keep referees from retaliating against the Cowboys quarterback. Following the Cowboys’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers Sunday afternoon, Prescott responded to a question from reporters about fans throwing objects on the field. At first, Prescott called it “sad,” believing the crowd was targeting his teammates. But once he realized objects were being thrown at referees, the quarterback changed his tune. “Credit to them then,” Prescott said of fans attacking the officials. “All of a sudden he’s in harms way with the NFL referees,” Bayless said Wednesday morning on Undisputed. “Going forward, after he had taken that kind of shot encouraging fan violence against them…would they not hold this against Dak? And the first time they had an iffy call on roughing the passer, they sort of swallow the whistle and keep the little yellow flag in their pocket?” After two days of backlash to his comments about NFL officials, Prescott issued an apology via Twitter Tuesday night. But bad blood between Prescott...
    A court document filed by New York attorney general Letitia James says Ivanka Trump leased a luxury apartment from her father's company on 'extraordinarily favorable terms' – with an option to buy it at a third of the value listed on company financial statements. Ivanka had an option to purchase the Park Avenue apartment for $8.5 million, according to the court order seeking testimony filed by the AG's office.   But her father Donald Trump, on his Statement of Financial Condition over several years listed values of the apartment at between $20,820,000 and $25,000,000, according to the document. The same document reveals that her brother, Eric Trump, invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination 500 times over six hours of testimony – amid a parallel criminal investigation.  They are among the allegations of accounting tricks and unusual financial arrangements spelled out in court documents filed by James' office seeking to compel testimony by the former president, Ivanka and Eric Trump in their civil investigation of Trump's real estate and hospitality empire. James' office mentions the apartment in a filing that alleges the Trump...

    CNN host Don Lemon railed against people not vaccinated against the coronavirus Tuesday, referring to them as "idiots" and imploring Americans as a whole to "start doing things for the greater good of society."  During an appearance on "New Day," Lemon placed blame on the unvaccinated for the continued mutation and spread of the coronavirus and mocked people for "doing their own research" about the virus and vaccines. CNN'S DON LEMON SUGGESTS TEXAS SYNAGOGUE HOSTAGE-TAKER SUFFERING FROM ‘MENTAL ILLNESS,’ IGNORES TERROR LINK Hosts John Berman and Kasie Hunt began the topic by playing a viral video of Mexican news anchor Leonardo Schwebel losing it on unvaccinated people and those choosing not to wear masks. In the video, Schwebel can be seen screaming erratically into the camera and cursing.  "I've gotten criticized for saying that we need to stop listening to the people, and they should not be part of polite society," Lemon said before declaring that Schwebel was right.  "Listen, the unvaccinated people in the U.S. are key to the reason that coronavirus – the variants – are emerging …...
    MIKEL ARTETA remained coy on his team selection ahead of the match against Liverpool as he aims to reach his second cup final as Arsenal boss. The Gunners requested their match against Tottenham on Sunday was postponed due to Covid and injuries ravaging their squad. 2Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe could both return to the starting line-up And though some issues remain Arteta can welcome back some important players to his squad for Thursday's Carabao Cup clash. Martin Odegaard returns as the only Covid absentee from the weekend, while Thomas Partey could also be back in the UK after being knocked out of AFCON with Ghana. The Emirates match against Liverpool could come too soon for the midfielder but Emile Smith Rowe could operate in a deeper role after missing out in the first leg of the semi-final. Bukayo Saka is also expected to be back along with Calum Chambers, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares - all four have overcome knocks. But Granit Xhaka is still suspended after his red card at Anfield - finding a partner for Sambi...
    The majority of the 270 signatories to an open letter to Spotify accusing Joe Rogan of pushing 'anti-vax misinformation' on his podcast - with one branding him a 'menace to public health' - are not medical doctors.  Hundreds of doctors and scientists signed the letter, published January 10, that called on the streaming giant to adopt a misinformation policy after the comedian hosted the controversial Dr Robert Malone last month. Only 87 of the signatories are medical doctors. Malone himself has an MD from Northwestern University. Some of the other medical professions represented include: Dr. Christine Garvey, a Western New York-based veterinarian; Dr. Colleen Trecartin-Frost, a dentist from New Jersey; Autumn Schuster, a social worker at the University of California at Irvine; Dr. Gabriel Evaristo, a gynecologist who received his MD from a university in Venezuela; Korinne Bricker, a 'COVID-19 laboratory supervisor' at Test Well, which seeks to 'make COVID-19 testing more efficient and effective'; psychologists, teachers, and engineers.  A few of the people signing the letter also work on podcasts like Rogan's.  Bridget Scallen, an MS, credits herself as the...
    Dak Prescott apologized for condoning fans throwing objects at the referees after the Dallas Cowboys were knocked out of the playoffs Sunday afternoon. Dallas lost to the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 following a controversial play call which saw Prescott run a quarterback draw with 14 seconds left and no timeouts. As Prescott and his offensive line were set to stop the clock in hopes of running one more play, the umpire came charging through to spot the ball, but time ran out, ending the game abruptly. After the game, Prescott responded to a question about Cowboys fans throwing objects on the field, calling it “sad” because the quarterback believed the crowd was targeting his teammates. When Prescott was corrected and informed those objects were actually directed at the refs, the quarterback changed his tune, saying, “credit to them then.” “The fans felt the same way as us,” Prescott added. “I guess that’s why the refs took off and got out of there so fast.” Two days later, Prescott thought better of his comments and went on Twitter to apologize...
    Amy’s Kitchen has an abundance of ready-made frozen and boxed meals served in stores and restaurants around the nation. As a result, it is often praised for being one of the largest and most readily available vegetarian and vegan food brands. On its website, Amy’s boasts of being a family-run business that puts a special ingredient into every meal: Love. They emphasize the importance of treating employees and staff like family and keeping the integrity of their products. A big selling point they have is that their meals are made by hand, just like you’d make at home. The website boasts: “In 1987, Andy and Rachel Berliner made the first pot pie right out of their family home. Years later, not much has changed, except the size of our pots…Rather than working the way most food producers do, by manufacturing food, the Berliners kept doing things the way they always had, with love.” It sounds great on the outside, but an NBC News interview with five former and current employees paints a different picture. In the interview, laid-off employee Ines...
    São Paulo, Brazil (CNN)Last June, as Covid-19 cases were surging across Brazil, Camila Basto waited at a São Paulo hospital to find out what was wrong with her 9-year-old daughter, Manuela. Manuela had a fever that reached 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit), spots all over her skin and a lump growing out of her neck. Her kidneys didn't function for nearly two days. "Her heart almost stopped," Basto said. After three days, Manuela was diagnosed with multisystem inflammatory syndrome, a rare condition that affects children who have been infected by Covid-19.Manuela recovered from Covid, but its side effects have left a lasting impression on her heart: She now has arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat."It is so horrible.

    HAKIM ZIYECH might have scored for Chelsea last night, but his lack of celebration didn't go unnoticed by pundits and fans alike. Ziyech scored the opener in Chelsea's 1-1 draw against Brighton, but the way he reacted was more reminiscent of a consolation goal in a 5-1 defeat. 1Ziyech couldn't have looked more disgruntled after bagging for the Blues And former Chelsea man Joe Cole, on punditry duty for BT Sport, claimed the lack of celebration 'doesn't sit well' for Ziyech, 28, who has been struggling for first team action. He said: "This is what you play for. He's a fantastic talent, he hasn't hit the ground running in the Premier League as it's very different to the Dutch league. "But the not celebrating... It doesn't sit well for him as a lad." Cole added: "If he was in my team I'd be saying come on. You know when lads are not happy and they're not playing. But if I come off the bench and score a goal, it's a release of energy." Chelsea fans too...

                 Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-GA-11), during a speech late last week about Democrats’ attempts to pass a federal takeover of elections, said that the party wants to create “a homogenous society that is easily controlled.” Loudermilk said this on the floor of the House of Representatives. “Make no mistake. This legislation is an attempt to circumvent state legislatures’ constitutional authority to set election laws, laws like the one recently passed in Georgia that maximizes voter access and protects the integrity of every legal ballot. One-size fits all government has never worked in a diverse and free society like we have here in the United States of America,” Loudermilk said. “One-size-fits-all is synonymous with dictatorial regimes, socialist societies, and communist countries. Governments that keep control over the people by stripping the authority from the hands of local officials that were elected by the people to represent them. This is what this bill does.” Loudermilk referred to Georgia’s new voter integrity law, SB 202. Georgia’s new voter integrity law requires voter ID on all absentee ballots, increases oversight of local election boards...
    (CNN)A group of parents of public school students in Chesapeake, Virginia, filed a lawsuit Tuesday asking Virginia's Supreme Court to block a new executive order issued by Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin that makes masks voluntary for children in the state's public schools.The lawsuit, obtained by CNN affiliate WTKR, points to guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as to a law passed by Virginia's General Assembly last year directing local school boards to adopt in-person schooling policies that reduce the spread of Covid-19 based on CDC recommendations.The lawsuit alleges that the order, which Youngkin issued Saturday, is in "direct conflict" with that statute, and therefore runs afoul of a separation of powers provision of Virginia's Constitution. The lawsuit also names as defendants the acting state health commissioner, the acting superintendent for Virginia's public schools and local school officials in Chesapeake.Asked for comment on the lawsuit, Youngkin spokesperson Macaulay Porter said, "We will continue to protect parents' fundamental right to make decisions with regard to their child's upbringing, education and care."In office for less than a...
    If Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis were a responsible leader dedicated to the well-being of his constituents, he would have made clear that the Regeneron monoclonal antibody being administered at his five new treatment sites is all but useless in the current COVID-19 surge. But DeSantis is DeSantis and therefore his own top priority. He is happy to offer false hope in the middle of a pandemic—as his state breaks infection records week after week—if he believes it is to his political advantage. Last month, DeSantis held a press conference outside Ocala Medical Center with a sign reading “Early Treatment Saves Lives” and touted monoclonal antibodies as the answer to COVID crisis. His surgeon general, Joe Ladapo, described vaccines, masks, and testing as a “trifecta” of “lunacy.” Omicron had already begun to spread in Florida and elsewhere, so quickly that it was soon responsible for the overwhelming majority of new cases. The federal government stopped distributing two of the three mjaor monoclonal antibody treatments—Regeneron and bamlanivimab—on the grounds they were ineffective against the new variants. The third treatment, sotrovimab, remains in...
    DENVER (CBS4) – King Soopers has been granted a temporary restraining order against striking employees. A judge granted the request Tuesday evening after the company alleged several incidents of harassing behavior toward customers. The workers’ union says the allegations are unfounded. (credit: CBS) In a statement to CBS4, King Soopers wrote: “To be extremely clear – we support our associates’ right to picket, we also respect our associates’ right to cross the picket line and work and our customers’ right to cross the line to shop. Unfortunately, at several locations picketers are engaging in unlawful activity including threatening, blocking and intimidating both associates and customers who have chosen to cross the picket line. Additionally, there have been instances where picketers are blocking trucks from delivering to our stores. These activities are not peaceful and frankly are unsafe. The safety of our associates, customers, and communities will ALWAYS come first and this temporary restraining order is a reflection of that commitment.” The request also alleges multiple incidents of picketers falsely telling customers that the stores are closed, preventing cars from entering the...
    GETTY Deebo Samuel #19 of the San Francisco 49ers carries the ball after a reception against the Dallas Cowboys during the second quarter in the NFC Wild Card Playoff game. Sometimes, you just know. That was the case for San Francisco 49ers offensive threat Deebo Samuel against the Dallas Cowboys. After all, before Samuel scored to make it a 23-7, he had been waiting for his turn to get in the endzone. The 49ers had driven into Dallas territory four times at that point and had only come away with one touchdown through running back Elijah Mitchell capping off a stellar opening drive. So when Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was picked off by K’Waun Williams at the Cowboys’ 26-yard line, Deebo saw his chance. The former South Carolina Gamecock receiver told coach Kyle Shanahan and his teammates as much. Deebo Samuel is a dominant weapon on offense ???? @19problemz told Kyle Shanahan ????????????'???? ????????! and put the ball in the box.

    We’ve been warned for decades about the growing threat of white nationalism in the United States. Back in 2020, FBI director Christopher Wray acknowledged that white supremacy is the fastest growing domestic terror threat in the country, accounting for the large proportion of the FBI’s resources. Wray eventually described the J6 insurrection last year, as an act of domestic terror. This reality is often drowned out by an avalanche of falsehoods perpetuated by the media, especially conservative media. The greatest threat to US security is posed by the existential enemy from outside, we are told. Islamic extremists, or criminals making their way across the border, are the greatest obstacles for national security. We are told that the radical woke left, as well as those pesky Black Lives Matter protesters armed with their anti-white critical race theory, pose a danger to cities across the country as well as the minds of innocent white school children. These fallacies have taken root, even in the minds of what many would describe as respectable Middle Americans. READ: Dan Crenshaw lashes out and...
    A federal appeals court ruled Monday the lawsuit by abortion providers against the Texas Heartbeat Act must move to the conservative-leaning Texas Supreme Court, rather than back to a federal court in Austin that has been the only court to block the law restricting abortions in the state.

    Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona is facing new blowback from a powerful interest group over her opposition to changing Senate rules to advance voting rights legislation – with Emily's List threatening she will be 'standing alone' in her next election. The group, which backs pro-choice women across the country, released a statement warning Sinema on Tuesday, as Senate Democrats were meeting on their strategy on a push for voting rights legislation that is likely doomed by opposition from Sinema and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). 'We have not endorsed or contributed to Sen. Sinema since her election in 2018. Right now, Sen. Sinema's decision to reject the voices of allies, partners and constituents who believe the importance of voting rights outweighs that of an arcane process means she will find herself standing alone in the next election,' the group said in a statement. Pro-choice group Emily's List said it would not support Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) if she doesn't address its concerns with her position on changing the filibuster to act on voting rights legislation 'EMILY's List is laser-focused on the...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard sharply criticized the Biden administration's deployment of a domestic terrorism unit to target those with “anti-authority” or “anti-government” beliefs, telling people that "we must all stand up against this." The Justice Department is creating a task force to combat domestic terrorism, according to a top official, the New York Times reported last week. Gabbard tweeted her rebuke of the new policy, along with a clip of her Fox News appearance Sunday in which she discussed the policy. WATCH: DESANTIS BLASTS 'LOCKDOWN POLITICIANS' FOR VACATIONING IN FLORIDA “Biden’s new policy of directing a domestic terrorism unit to target those who have an ‘anti-authority’ or ‘anti-government' attitude exposes their anti-liberty/anti-democracy mindset.

    Belarusian involvement in an expanded Russian war against Ukraine would risk bringing the end of dictator Alexander Lukashenko’s regime, U.S. officials warned the strongman in response to the deployment of Russian forces in Belarus. “I believe Belarus’s complicity in such an attack would be completely unacceptable to Belarusians and to many inside the regime, as well as to us and our allies and partners,” a senior State Department official told reporters. “And we’ve made our concerns known to the Belarusian authorities privately.” Western officials have long regarded Belarusian security services as a Kremlin asset on NATO’s eastern flank and the border of Ukraine, a misgiving that has deepened as Lukashenko looked to Moscow for assistance in withstanding protests that erupted after he claimed victory in last year’s contested presidential election. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s team declined to reveal how the United States would respond to such a joint effort against Ukraine but implied that such a course could fracture his own regime. “[Belarus] has been committed to neutrality ... The breadth of the commitment to the neutrality concept, I...

    Three months after a federal judge ruled two U.S. Park Police officers were immune from charges in the killing of unarmed Virginia driver Bijan Ghaisar, nine attorneys general are asking a higher court to reconsider. After state prosecutors in Virginia appealed a U.S. district judge’s decision finding federal officers Lucas Amaya and Alejandro Amaya immune from local charges in the unarmed driver’s killing, the attorneys general filed a brief supporting that appeal. In 2017, two U.S. Park Police officers who patrol the federal George Washington Parkway pursued the 25-year-old McLean man, after he left the scene of a minor traffic accident in which he had been rear-ended. The pursuit ended off the parkway when the officers approached Ghaisar between their cruiser and a ditch. Dash cam video viewed in court showed that when Ghaisar’s car then began to inch away from them at low speed, Vineyard and Amaya fired multiple shots through the windshield. Ghaisar sustained several gunshot wounds and later died of his injuries at the hospital. D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine led the brief and was joined by...

    Last week, 270 so-called "doctors" co-signed an open letter to Spotify demanding the company take action against podcast host Joe Rogan for promoting what they called COVID-related "misinformation." The media rushed to circulate the letter, running headlines that cast Rogan as a "menace to public health," as asserted by the group. DR. ROBERT MALONE ON JOE ROGAN INTERVIEW CENSORSHIP, TWITTER BAN: 'YOU CAN'T SUPPRESS INFORMATION' A closer look however found that the majority of the signatories are either not direct medical providers, or are not legally permitted to practice medicine on their own. Nearly 100 of them reportedly hold Ph.D. degrees but do not regularly practice.  The letter addressed Rogan's now-viral episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience," in which virologist and immunologist Dr. Robert Malone criticized the vaccine and voiced concerns over mass formation psychosis.  Spotify has not acknowledged calls for change after liberal media outlets and a group of medical professionals have urged the streaming platform to take action against "misinformation" spread by Joe Rogan.  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHQzoHolWvI) (YouTube) The Guardian, Forbes, Rolling Stone, Washington Post and others published the...
    GETTY Jimmy Garoppolo #10 of the San Francisco 49ers scrambles against the Dallas Cowboys during the first half in the NFC Wild Card Playoff game. The San Francisco 49ers are headed to Green Bay to take on the Packers in the NFC Divisional Round Saturday, but they could be without their starting quarterback. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed on Monday that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a shoulder sprain in the first half against the Dallas Cowboys. Garoppolo played through the injury, but struggled in the second half, completing 5 of 11 passes for 39 yards and an interception. While the Niners walked away with a 23-17 win and Shanahan then said that Jimmy G ought to be good to go against the Packers, an update from Fox Sports 1 insider Jason McIntyre says otherwise. “Texted someone in SF about 90 minutes ago asking about Jimmy G,” McIntyre tweeted. “LOTS of rumors the hand & shoulder are not good. Like ‘may not start’ good. And the line has surged marketwide to GB -6. Somebody has even more intel.”...
    A group of federal employees suing the Biden administration over the vaccine mandates has filed a new lawsuit in federal court that broadens the scope of its arguments. Thirty-nine unnamed federal workers across the government at the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland Security, Justice, State, and Treasury, as well as the Central Intelligence Agency, sued President Joe Biden in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida on Friday, according to a copy of the lawsuit first obtained by the Washington Examiner. “I believe that our lawsuit is based on sound research and how the federal employment discrimination law has been developed over the past four decades,” said Carol Thompson, an attorney with the Federal Practice Group in Washington, one of the two firms involved. "I do also see that this may be something that doesn't end at the federal district court level, given that there are different federal district courts coming out in different ways. I perceive it as being an issue that ultimately is possibly going to be seen by the Supreme Court, potentially." The Supreme...
