John Yoo discusses the prospects for the Supreme Court to enact tremendous reform of how the administrative state engages in law-making. Spurred by a 2019 dissenting opinion written by Justice Neil Gorsuch in U.S. v. Gundy that called for a revival of the so-called "nondelegation doctrine", Yoo describes how the Court would curtail Congress from transferring lawmaking power to federal agencies. Yoo notes, "the question the Roberts court has to face is, do we think that the courts, by trying to constrain how far Congress can go, can actually force Congress to become more accountable and take responsibility for these tough policy choices, even when Congress doesn't want to do it? I think that's a very, very hard question. You could see the court making these decisions in the way that place limits on what Congress can do, place limits on what the administrative state can do."

Mitch McConnell, the perpetually sour old goose who heads the Senate Republican Caucus, had a hissy fit when the news leaked out that American women are about to have their most fundamental constitutional right taken from them by a cabal of Supreme Court judges. What made Mitch twitch, of course, was not the bad news for women… but the leak. He huffed that revealing the right-wing Court's scheme to the public was a “stunning breach,” spewing that it's “an attack on the independence of the Supreme Court.” Uh, Mitch… the so-called Supremes have been meeting behind closed doors specifically to plot an all-out attack on the independence of some 170 million women to control their own bodies. Why aren't you opposing the secrecy, rather than supporting the Court's subversion of women's liberty? Perversely, the entire Republican leadership is outraged by the leak, rather than the attack on women. Right-wing blowhard Ted Cruz, for example, yapped that informing the public “will do lasting damage to the integrity of the Court.” Uh, Ted… you and your ideological ilk annihilated the Court's integrity – and its legitimacy – when you stacked it with a covey of corporate-coddling partisan hacks like Alito, Barrett, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Thomas. Then came Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, a Trump acolyte, ludicrously blathering that the leak of the judicial plan is “despicable.” Why? Well, he explained to us commoners, the Court “is not a political body.” If ignorance is bliss, Mike must be ecstatic! The GOP majority on this court is so immersed in its own partisan biases that it is routinely ruling against workers, the environment, women, voting rights, local communities… and democracy itself. No surprise then that public trust in the integrity of these “arbiters of justice” is crashing. If the Court won't respect our democratic ideals, the people won't respect the Court.

In Thompson v. Clark, the plaintiff sought to bring a civil suit claiming he was the victim of a wrongful seizure after police allegedly entered his apartment without a warrant based on unsubstantiated allegations of child abuse. Thompson was charged with resisting arrest amid the warrantless raid, but prosecutors subsequently elected to drop this criminal case. The question that then arose was whether this result, though short of a formal exoneration, was sufficient to meet the requirement that there be a favorable conclusion of the criminal case against Thompson before he could pursue his civil suit. In this discussion, attorneys for amici on both sides will explore which justices got it right and the implications of this ruling in future cases for prosecutors, defendants, and civil litigants.BackgroundThompson v. Clark was decided on April 4 with the Supreme Court holding Larry Thompson's showing that his criminal prosecution ended without a conviction satisfies the requirement to demonstrate a favorable termination of a criminal prosecution in a Fourth Amendment claim under Section 1983 for malicious prosecution. The majority rejected the dissenting view that an affirmative indication of innocence should be required. Justice Kavanaugh delivered the 6-3 opinion of the Court. Justice Alito filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Thomas and Gorsuch joined.Featuring:-- Vincent Stark, Bureau Chief, Legal Affairs Unit, Albany County District Attorney's Office-- Marie Miller, Attorney, Institute for Justice-- Moderator: Marc Levin, Chief Policy Counsel, Council on Criminal Justice and Senior Advisor, Right on Crime

THE THESIS: The Party is aligned on keeping power.

HAPPY: 38% (+18) ANGRY: 20%  But, do we see Mitch and Kevin getting in front of this battle? No. As always, the leftist portion of The Party is taking it head on.

Nonprofit Watchdog Uncovers $350 Million in Secret Payments to Fauci, Collins, Others at NIH An estimated $350 million in undisclosed royalties were paid to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and hundreds of its scientists, including the agency's recently departed director, Dr. Francis Collins, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to a nonprofit government watchdog. “We estimate that up to $350 million in royalties from third parties were paid to NIH scientists during the fiscal years between 2010 and 2020,” Open the Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told reporters in a telephone news conference on May 9. “We draw that conclusion because, in the first five years, there has been $134 million that we have been able to quantify of top-line numbers that flowed from third-party payers, meaning pharmaceutical companies or other payers, to NIH scientists.” The first five years, from 2010 to 2014, constitute 40 percent of the total, he said. “We now know that there are 1,675 scientists that received payments during that period, at least one payment. In fiscal year 2014, for instance, $36 million was paid out and that is on average $21,100 per scientist,” Andrzejewski said. “We also find that during this period, leadership at NIH was involved in receiving third-party payments. For instance, Francis Collins, the immediate past director of NIH, received 14 payments. Dr. Anthony Fauci received 23 payments and his deputy, Clifford Lane, received eight payments.” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

A history of Roe v. Wade in the context of its impending reversal.The United Nations lists forced pregnancy as a crime against humanity in Article 7.1.g of the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court. If you like our content, please become a patron to access both our premium episodes and our public episodes ad-free. Forced pregnancy is listed near murder, enslavement, and the crime of apartheid. An abortion ban is forcing women to be pregnant and give birth. A sexual violence component is linked to this crime: in this case, that component is obliging a rape victim to carry a pregnancy to term and give birth. 1 The leaked Supreme Court draft opinion overturning Roe Vs Wade is not only an attack on women's rights. In some states, it will also be a ban on IUDs, condoms, and even a ban on medications used for treating ectopic pregnancy and miscarriages. Women will have less access to medical services such as cancer screenings and the Papanicolaou test. Raped young girls will be forced to give birth. The same will apply to incest and cases where the pregnancy risks to the mothers' life. Plan B even would be prohibited, the morning-after pill could trigger a murder charge. Even countries like Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia have more liberalized abortion laws. 2 In some US states, the abortion laws are already insane: In Alabama, the penalty for getting an abortion after you are raped is more severe than the penalty for raping someone. Some pharmacists in Texas are ALREADY refusing to fill prescriptions to treat ectopic pregnancies or miscarriages as some of the drugs used in those cases are also used for abortions. And outside of abortion, Texas has also implemented a "loyalty oath to Israel" requirement for state employees including school teachers that is working through the courts. 3 We also discuss Jane Roe aka Norma McCorvey, Linda Coffee, Sarah Weddington, Gloria Allred, feminism, Matt Gaetz, “overeducated”, and the fact that it was Republicans like Nixon and Reagan who first passed abortion laws. We discuss the Supreme Court Republican nominated Justices: John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barret. We hear about abortion bans in Ceausescu's Romania, then explain how racism and the Green v. Connally decision are the root of the American anti abortion craze via a man named Paul Weyrich and Jerry Falwell. Bob Jones University and its founder claimed that racial segregation was mandated by the Bible. Then we discuss the separation of church and state, and Jimmy Carter's election details in this context. We also address the foster system and state of social services in the US. We discuss the senate vote on codifying Roe vs. Wade as well. 4 We look at the countries that rolled back abortion laws in the last 20 years: El Salvador, Nicaragua and Poland. 1.

Supreme Court Opinions

Thompson v. Clark, (2022), was a United States Supreme Court case concerning whether a plaintiff suing for malicious prosecution must show that he or she was affirmatively exonerated of committing the alleged crime. The Supreme Court, in a 6 to 3 opinion authored by Justice Brett Kavanaugh held that no such requirement existed and that a plaintiff suing for malicious prosecution in the context of a Fourth Amendment "need only show that his prosecution ended without a conviction." Justice Samuel Alito dissented from the majority opinion and was joined by Justices Thomas and Gorsuch. Media coverage of the decision portrayed the Court's ruling as a victory for civil rights lawsuits. Background. Larry Thompson, a Navy veteran and postal worker, lived with his fiancée and newborn daughter in an apartment in Brooklyn, New York. When Thompson's daughter was one week old, his sister-in-law called 911 and accused Thompson of sexually abusing the child. Four police officers were dispatched to Thompson's house to investigate but Thompson refused to let them in without a search warrant. In response, the four officers forced their way into Thompson's home and attempted to restrain Thompson. Thompson resisted, was taken into custody for two days, and was subsequently charged with resisting arrest. Further investigation by law enforcement revealed no signs of child abuse. Rather than prosecute Thompson for resisting arrest, the prosecution opted to dismiss the charges. Neither the prosecutor nor the judge offered any explanation as to why the charges were dismissed. Following the dismissal of his criminal charges, Thompson filed suit against the officers responsible for arresting him under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and alleging, among other things, that he had been maliciously prosecuted in violation of his Fourth Amendment rights, which provided the right against unlawful seizures. Thompson's claims were dismissed at the trial level and his appeal to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals was similarly denied as both courts held that, under existing precedent, Thompson was required to show that he had been affirmatively found innocent of committing the underlying crime. On November 6, 2020, Thompson filed a petition for a writ of certiorari, which was granted on March 8, 2021. During the October 12, 2021, oral argument, the justices posed a series of hypotheticals involving the fictional character of Jean Valjean and the mythological centaur.

On April 25, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District.Bremerton School District in Washington state removed Coach Joe Kennedy from his job as a public high school football coach after kneeling in brief, quiet prayer on the field after football games. Coach Kennedy filed suit alleging that the school district's ban on “demonstrative religious activity” violated his First Amendment rights under the Free Speech and Free Exercise Clauses.In 2019, on appeal of the denial of a preliminary injunction, the U.S. Supreme Court declined the petition for review, allowing further factual development. Justice Alito, joined by Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh, issued a statement respecting the denial of certiorari, writing that the “Ninth Circuit's understanding of the free speech rights of public school teachers is troubling and may justify review in the future.”This year, the Supreme Court granted cert on two questions concerning the interplay of the Free Speech, Free Exercise, and Establishment Clauses:Whether a public-school employee who says a brief, quiet prayer by himself while at school and visible to students is engaged in government speech that lacks any First Amendment protection.Whether, assuming that such religious expression is private and protected by the Free Speech and Free Exercise Clauses, the Establishment Clause nevertheless compels public schools to prohibit it.We will break down the argument on the same day, April 25, 2022.Featuring:-- Stephanie Taub, Senior Counsel, First LibertyNote: Coach Kennedy is represented by Kirkland & Ellis and First Liberty Institute.

In a 6-3 decision, the Court reversed the judgment of the U.S. Court of the Appeals for the First Circuit, holding that the court improperly vacated Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's capital sentences. The Court held that the judge's conduct of voir dire conformed to its precedents and reversed the First Circuit's holding that the judge had violated a rule established by that circuit under its supervisor power. The Court held that courts of appeals have no power to circumvent or supplement legal standards established in Supreme Court precedents.The Court also held that the judge was within his authority to exclude from the penalty trial hearsay evidence of Tsarnaev's brother's involvement in an unrelated murder. The Court rejected the argument that the Eighth Amendment requires admission of all mitigating evidence no matter how dubious or how weakly mitigating.Justice Thomas delivered the opinion of the court, in which Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett joined.

This episode is a “Sidebar,” which is our term for an episode that is off the timeline of the History of the Americans. This episode centers on a concurring opinion delivered by Justice Neil Gorsuch in a case handed down by the United States Supreme Court only a few days ago, on April 21, 2022. The case, United States vs. Vaello Madero, addresses a pretty unexciting question to most of us -- whether the Constitution requires Congress to extend Supplemental Security Income benefits to residents of Puerto Rico to the same extent it makes those benefits available to the residents of the States. That is not the interesting part. Justice Gorsuch's concurring opinion is, however, very interesting, an eloquent re-telling of the history of a series of cases -- the "Insular Cases" -- handed down in the years following the Spanish-American war, the moment in which the United States started dabbling in the European habit of true empire building. The Insular Cases are both an analytical mess and remain on the books as bad law today, as Justice Gorsuch compellingly argues. Enjoy! Selected references for this episode United States v.

Wooden v. United States, (2022), was a Supreme Court of the United States case dealing with the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA). In a unanimous decision, the court ruled that multiple criminal offenses that a person commits during a single criminal episode do not count as separate convictions when considering the number of prior convictions a criminal has under the ACCA. Background. In 1997, William Wooden was involved with the burglary of a self-storage space, breaking into ten adjacent units within a single night. He was convicted on ten counts of burglary and served an eight-year prison sentence. Later, in 2014, Wooden was arrested for possession of a rifle under Georgia law when a police officer, out of uniform and without a warrant, entered his home and discovered the rifle. The charges were later dismissed due to the irregularities of the discovery, but federal officers stepped in to charge Wooden for possession of firearms under the ACCA. While a first-time conviction under the ACCA would normally lead to a sentence of 21 to 27 months, federal prosecutors believed that the ten prior convictions from the storage burglary were separate "occasions" under the ACCA, and triggered the enhanced sentencing provision of the ACCA for criminals that have been convictions on three or more separate occasions, setting a minimum sentence of 15 years. While Wooden argued that the ten burglary convictions should be treated as a single occasion for purposes of the ACCA, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee found in favor of the government's argument, as this stance was based on current case law for the Sixth Circuit. The decision was upheld on appeal at the Sixth Circuit. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court granted Wooden's petition in February 2021. The case was argued on October 4, 2021. The Court issued its decision on March 8, 2022. The judgment was unanimous, reversing the decision of the lower courts. The majority opinion was written by Justice Elena Kagan, joined in whole by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, Brett Kavanaugh and all but Part 2-B by Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett. Kagan wrote that based both on the legislative history of the ACCA and the ordinary meaning of "occasion", that the ten burglary convictions that Wooden had received were all within the same occasion. "Consider first how an ordinary person (a reporter; a police officer; yes, even a lawyer) might describe Wooden's 10 burglaries — and how she would not", Kagan wrote. While Justice Barrett wrote a concurrence in part and in the judgment which was joined by Justice Thomas, she wrote that she took issue with Justice Kagan's use of legislative history as part of the rationale. Kagan had pointed to a 1988 amendment where Congress had made it clear that they intended that the enhanced sentencing was to come from separate episodes by referring to a person that was convicted under the enhanced provisions of the ACCA after performing a stick-up of six people at the same time. Barrett stated this was too much of a stretch for statutory interpretation and that they should defer to what Congress explicitly stated in the law. Justice Neil Gorsuch also wrote a concurrence in judgment, joined in the most part by Justice Sotomayor. Gorsuch wrote that Wooden's case calls for the use of the rule of lenity, deferring in favor of the defendant when there is ambiguity in criminal law. Gorsuch also expressed concern that the ACCA created enhanced penalties to be decided by a judge rather than by a jury, which may be a violation of the Fifth and Sixth Amendment.

United States v Zubaydah, (2022), was a United States Supreme Court case related to the state secrets privilege. Background. Abu Zubaydah was captured by the United States in Pakistan in 2002 and has been alleged to be a member of Al Qaeda. While in custody he had been transferred to multiple sites, including several black sites operated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), before he was transferred indefinitely to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp by 2003. While the information on these sites was classified, activities at one site in Poland became public knowledge after Zubaydah and his council requested an investigation in 2010 from Polish officials into his treatment while at a black site in Poland. The report found that Zubaydah had been subjected to waterboarding and other forms of torture at the black site under direction of two CIA contractors. Zubaydah sought disclosures from the two contractors in 2017 through federal courts to testify to their role in his detention. The CIA objected, claiming that any information regarding the black site was classified and could not be disclosed, even if the responses that Zubaydah sought did not reveal anything about the site's location. Zubayday countered that the site's general location in Poland had already been revealed to the public through other means. He prevailed in the district court and a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed, over Judge Ronald M. Gould's dissent. Judge Daniel Bress, joined by 11 colleagues, dissented from the denial of rehearing en banc. Supreme Court. Certiorari was granted in the case on April 26, 2021. Oral arguments were heard on October 6, 2021. On March 3, 2022, a fractured Court reversed the Ninth Circuit in a mostly 7–2 vote. The majority decision was written by Justice Stephen Breyer, joined in full by Chief Justice John Roberts and in part by Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. Breyer acknowledged that while information about the CIA black site in Poland had been identified in public, the type of information that Zubaydah sought "would tend to confirm (or deny) the existence of a CIA detention site in Poland", and thus there was reasonable cause for the government to consider any further confirmation a matter of national security, since this potentially could expose the existence of black sites in other countries. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence to the judgment which Justice Samuel Alito joined. Thomas agreed with the judgment of the majority, but believed that Zubaydah did not need the information he was requesting from the contractors to pursue his case. Justice Elena Kagan also wrote a concurrence, but stated the case should be remanded to the district court to review what information Zubaydah sought that could be separated from state secrets. Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the dissent, joined by Sonia Sotomayor. Gorsuch argued that the fact that Zubayduh was held at a black site in Poland between 2002 and 2003 was now public knowledge and thus no longer a state secret, and was concerned about the over-classification of information by the government. He also stated, in agreement with Kagan, that the case should be remanded to district court to separate out what information could be obtained without evoking any state secret privilege.

You hate all who do wrong; 6     you destroy those who tell lies. The bloodthirsty and deceitful     you, Lord, detest. 7 But I, by your great love,     can come into your house; in reverence I bow down     toward your holy temple. 8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness     because of my enemies—     make your way straight before me. 9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;     their heart is filled with malice. Their throat is an open grave;     with their tongues they tell lies. 10 Declare them guilty, O God!     Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins,     for they have rebelled against you. 11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;     let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them,     that those who love your name may rejoice in you. 12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;     you surround them with your favor as with a shield. John 1:43-51; Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael 43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked. “Come and see,” said Philip. 47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.” 48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.” 49 Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.” 50 Jesus said, “You believe[a] because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.” 51 He then added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on 'the Son of Man.” THE NEWS & COMMENT: URGENT PUBLIC NEWS: U.S. Senate expert witness testimony states that there are 410,000 unexplained deaths in Americans.

The Supreme Court accepted a case last month that could decide the fate of the Clean Air Act--and the subsequent duty of the EPA to regulate pollution emissions. The case is West Virginia v. EPA. This case is about far more than the specific details in the complaint. This case could be the final deathblow to federal regulation of anything, due to the "nondelegation doctrine" espoused by Justice Neil Gorsuch and fellow corporatists. I won't call Justices Gorsuch, Alito,Thomas, Roberts, Kavanaugh and Coney-Barrett--'conservatives' as they seek to conserve nothing but the status quo--which IS the reign of "corporate capture." Using a court created 'legal fiction', Gorsuch and 'friends' will attempt to complete a formula which will render federal regulations inoperable, and result in a total corporate run state.  Tune in.  Jeanine

Today is Friday, January 14, 2022.  SCOTUS Blocks Biden VAX Mandate & Upholds Healthcare Worker Mandate https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/13/supreme-court-ruling-biden-covid-vaccine-mandates.html The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration from enforcing its sweeping vaccine-or-test requirements for large private companies, but allowed a vaccine mandate to stand for medical facilities that take Medicare or Medicaid payments. The rulings came three days after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's emergency measure for businesses started to take effect. The mandate required that workers at businesses with 100 or more employees get vaccinated or submit a negative Covid test weekly to enter the workplace. It also required unvaccinated workers to wear masks indoors at work. “Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly,” the court wrote in an unsigned opinion. “Requiring the vaccination of 84 million Americans, selected simply because they work for employers with more than 100 employees, certainly falls in the latter category,” the court wrote. President Joe Biden, in a statement, said the Supreme Court chose to block requirements that are life-saving for workers. Biden called on states and businesses to step up and voluntarily institute vaccination requirements to protect workers, customers and the broader community. “The Court has ruled that my administration cannot use the authority granted to it by Congress to require this measure, but that does not stop me from using my voice as President to advocate for employers to do the right thing to protect Americans' health and economy,” Biden said. In a separate, simultaneously released ruling on the administration's vaccination rules for health-care workers, a 5-4 majority sided with the Biden administration. “We agree with the Government that the [Health and Human Services] Secretary's rule falls within the authorities that Congress has conferred upon him,” said the majority, writing that the rule “fits neatly within the language of the statute.” “After all, ensuring that providers take steps to avoid transmitting a dangerous virus to their patients is consistent with the fundamental principle of the medical profession: first, do no harm,” the majority opinion read. Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett, four of the six conservatives on the nine-seat bench, dissented. Kavanaugh and Roberts joined the three liberals to enforce this ruling. “I do not think that the Federal Government is likely to be able to show that Congress has authorized the unprecedented step of compelling over 10,000,000 healthcare workers to be vaccinated on pain of being fired,” Alito wrote in his dissent. FDA Issues Racist Triage Rationing for COVID Treatments https://freebeacon.com/coronavirus/food-and-drug-administration-drives-racial-rationing-of-covid-drugs/ Fron the Washington Free Beacon: In New York, racial minorities are automatically eligible for scarce COVID-19 therapeutics, regardless of age or underlying conditions. In Utah, "Latinx ethnicity" counts for more points than "congestive heart failure" in a patient's "COVID-19 risk score"—the state's framework for allocating monoclonal antibodies. And in Minnesota, health officials have devised their own "ethical framework" that prioritizes black 18-year-olds over white 64-year-olds—even though the latter are at much higher risk of severe disease. These schemes have sparked widespread condemnation of the state governments implementing them. But the idea to use race to determine drug eligibility wasn't hatched in local health departments; it came directly from the federal Food and Drug Administration. When the FDA issued its emergency use authorizations for monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals, it authorized them only for "high risk" patients—and issued guidance on what factors put patients at risk. One of those factors was race. The FDA "fact sheet" for Sotrovimab, the only monoclonal antibody effective against the Omicron variant, states that "race or ethnicity" can "place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19." The fact sheet for Paxlovid, Pfizer's new antiviral pill, uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's definition of "high risk," which states that "systemic health and social inequities" have put minorities "at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19." The guidance sheets are nonbinding and do not require clinicians to racially allocate the drugs. But states have nonetheless relied on them to justify race-based triage. "The FDA has acknowledged that in addition to certain underlying health conditions, race and ethnicity ‘may also place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19,'" Minnesota's plan reads. "FDA's acknowledgment means that race and ethnicity alone, apart from other underlying health conditions, may be considered in determining eligibility for [monoclonal antibodies]." Utah's plan contains similar language. In a section on the "Ethical Justification for Using Race/Ethnicity in Patient Selection," it notes that the FDA  "specifically states that race and ethnicity may be considered when identifying patients most likely to benefit from this lifesaving treatment." The FDA declined to comment on either state's plan, saying only that "there are no limitations on the authorizations that would restrict their use in individuals based on race." The triage plans are part of a broader push to rectify racial health disparities through race-conscious means. In March of last year, for example, two doctors at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston outlined an "antiracist agenda for medicine" that involved "offering preferential care based on race." And last year, Vermont and New Hampshire both gave racial minorities priority access to the COVID-19 vaccine, resulting in at least one formal civil rights complaint against New Hampshire. The trend has alarmed Roger Severino, the former civil rights director at the Department of Health and Human Services, who called racial preferences in medicine a "corrosive and grossly unfair" practice. "Our civil rights laws are not suspended during a public health emergency," Severino said. "We should never deny someone life-saving health care because of the color of their skin." The triage plans show how federal guidelines can encourage this sort of race discrimination. They also suggest that the FDA is making political judgments, not just scientific ones. "They're injecting politics into science," said a former senior HHS official. "That's something the Trump administration was pilloried for allegedly doing." One clear sign of that politicization, several legal and medical experts said, is the guidance's double standard between race and sex. Men in the United States have proven to be about 60 percent more likely than women to die of the disease, according to research from the Brookings Institution, and within some age brackets the mortality gap is even larger. But the FDA doesn't list sex as a risk factor anywhere in its guidance. And while the Utah scheme does take it into account, the New York and Minnesota schemes do not. Nor do they or the FDA give any weight to geography and socioeconomic status, both of which are associated with COVID-19 mortality. Instead, the triage plans give more weight to race than to many comorbidities. In Minnesota's scoring system, "BIPOC status" is worth two points, the same as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, whereas "hypertension in a patient 55 years and older" is worth just one. In Utah's scoring system, "Non-white race or Hispanic/Latinx ethnicity" is worth two points—the same amount as diabetes, obesity, and "severely immunocompromised"—while hypertension, congestive heart failure, chronic pulmonary disease, and "shortness of breath" count for one each. Men do receive one extra point under the Utah scheme, on the grounds that "male gender is associated with increased risk of severe COVID-19." Nonbinary patients, the document says, "may choose to answer" questions about their gender identity "with that background information." Speaking of Woke medicine… Microsoft WORD Will Now Offer Woke Corrections https://notthebee.com/article/microsoft-word-introduces-new-woke-feature-to-monitor-your-language?fbclid=IwAR0sxOqYrccyxxhgAfuKMSuVVCtBFRRQaHfC8qs1PZ3HmOtL4S6PU6Z8DAE From Not the Bee: Microsoft has just introduced a woke, politically correct feature that I don't think anyone ever asked for… Traditionally, Microsoft Word has been used by its 250 million users for things such as spelling, punctuation, and grammar checks. But that wasn't enough for the tech giant. They (probably) thought, "spelling and grammar checks are great and all but what we really want to do is influence and control the masses." Control is the biggest rave these days. Word will now highlight no-no words with a purple line beneath any problematic words or phrases that focus on gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity or even "socioeconomic status." Red lines are for spelling errors. Green lines for grammar mistakes. And now, purple lines are politically correct language police alerts. If you type a bigoted word like, let's say... "postman," Word will offer less offensive, gender-neutral alternatives like "mail carrier" or "postal worker." The software also suggests altering astronaut Neil Armstrong's famous quote from "one giant leap for mankind," to "humankind" or "humanity" instead. Who knew Neil Armstrong was such a sexist bigot... Microsoft Word knew. In the lyrics to Barry Manilow's party favourite Copacabana, Microsoft suggests Lola be referred to as a "dancer," "performer" or "performing artist" rather than a "showgirl." Word is not just policing your language (and by default, your thoughts) but it seems as though Microsoft wants us to re-write and re-imagine history by suggesting we change famous quotes. It also proposes changing "maid" to "house cleaner." Other changes include "headmaster" (Word suggests "principal"), "mistress" ("lover"), "master" ("expert"), "manpower" ("workforce") and "heroine" ("hero"). This isn't the first time Microsoft is cracking down on language, and it probably won't be the last! Just last year, Microsoft 365 tried to filter swearing and "bad behavior." Microsoft was also ridiculed in November over a video presentation showing senior execs introducing themselves by citing their race and gender pronouns. Marketing manager Nic Fillingham was filmed saying: "I'm a Caucasian man with glasses and a beard. I go by he/him."

At least seven other federal agencies, including five Cabinet departments, are apparently setting up similar “personal religious information” databases, according to an analyst at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in the District. The federal Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia, or CSOSA, published a “notice of a new system of records” in the Federal Register on Tuesday. The agency, which supervises defendants awaiting trial as well as parolees, aims to “reduce recidivism” and “integrate offenders into the community by connecting them with resources and interventions.” The federal departments of Treasury, the Interior, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, and Transportation, as well as the General Services Administration and the Securities and Exchange Commission, have each published proposed rule-makings to implement “systems of records” tracking their workers' religious accommodation requests. While there is “some data collection that is likely and legally permissible under Title VII, when an individual at a covered agency requests a religious accommodation,” Sarah Parshall Perry, a legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation's Institute for Constitutional Government, said, “we have not seen it on a broad scale like this ever.” President Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal workers took effect Nov. 22 under an executive order he issued Sept. 9. The executive order said its terms were “subject to such exceptions as required by law.” “We're not clear on what personal religious information is going to be gathered” under the CSOSA proposal, Ms. Perry said, adding that numerous sticky questions will come up. “How does one as a federal agency determine the sincerity or lack thereof of an individual's religious beliefs?” she asked rhetorically. “Normally, information like that goes directly to the [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] and is maintained for internal purposes, just in the case that there is a future dispute about whether or not religious discrimination exists. However, we're not told why or how this information is being used. And that smacks of religious discrimination on a grand scale.” Psalm of the Day: 23 0:20-0:54, 3:33-4:11 The King of Love my shepherd is…  Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise, within thy house forever.  Amen.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, targets slave labor in Xinjiang and surrounding provinces, where China is conducting a genocide of the Uyghur people. It passedthe House by voice vote Tuesday and is expected to be signed into law by President Joe Biden. The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act creates a “rebuttable presumption” that goods produced in Xinjiang or by certain listed Chinese business entities are produced by the forced labor of Uyghurs or other ethnic minorities. Companies may continue to import products from Xinjiang if they provide “clear and convincing evidence” to the Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection that their supply chains do not include forced labor. The bill's passage unlocks three votes to confirm Biden nominees to key State Department positions. Rubio and Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy agreed that the Republican would drop his objections to Nicholas Burns, nominated to be Ambassador to China, Ramin Toloui, nominated to be Assistant Secretary of State, and Rashad Hussain, nominated to be Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, in exchange for Murphy's lack of objection to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. Glenn Loury Says America is Not White Supremacist  Play audio: 0:00-1:02 Why are people flocking here from all over the world? Because it's so oppressive and white supremacist?  Supreme Court Sends Texas Heartbeat Law Back to Appeals Court A U.S. Supreme Court decision Thursday dealt another blow to the Texas abortion industry by sending its lawsuit against the state heartbeat law back to a federal appeals court that previously allowed the legislation to go into effect. The Associated Press reports the pro-abortion groups suing to overturn the pro-life law wanted the justices to send their lawsuit back to U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who blocked the law in October. On Thursday, however, Justice Neil Gorsuch signed an order sending the case to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals instead, according to the report. Back in October, the Fifth Circuit rejected Pitman's ruling just a few days after he issued it and allowed the law to go into effect again. Pro-life leaders estimate that the heartbeat law, which bans abortions once an unborn baby's heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy, has saved thousands of babies' lives since it went into effect Sept. 1. The law includes a unique private enforcement mechanism that allows private individuals to sue abortionists and those who “aid and abet” in abortions in violation of the law. It is this provision that has been the main focus of the legal dispute thus far. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court threw out a lawsuit from President Joe Biden and rejected the Texas pro-abortion groups' request to temporarily block the law while their legal challenge continues through the courts. While the high court ruled that the Texas abortion businesses may continue with their lawsuit, it also watered down their case by allowing them to sue state licensing officials but not the state judges and clerks who are charged with handling lawsuits spurred by the law. Now, the Supreme Court is sending the case back to the Fifth Circuit for consideration, and abortion activists are losing hope — good news for the future of unborn babies in Texas. “The Supreme Court left only a small sliver of our case intact, and it's clear that this part of the case will not block vigilante lawsuits from being filed,” Marc Hearron, a lawyer with the Center for Reproductive Rights, told the AP. “It's also clear that Texas is determined to stop the plaintiffs from getting any relief in even the sliver of the case that is left.” Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law, said he also was “stunned” that the Supreme Court allowed the law to remain in effect even though it violates Roe v. Wade. “The court's refusal to block the blatantly unconstitutional Texas law is also a strong signal that it is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Chemerinsky wrote this week at the Los Angeles Times. Texas abortion businesses are admitting a likely defeat as well. They essentially have no way to stop Texas citizens and pro-life groups from filing lawsuits against them, abortionists and abortion center staff who help abort unborn babies in violation the law. And if the law remains in effect much longer, many Texas abortion businesses may close. According to the Texas Tribune: Amy Hagstrom Miller, president of Whole Woman's Health, which operates four clinics in Texas and is the lead plaintiff in the providers' lawsuit, warned last week that the current volume of services is not enough to keep clinics open in the long term. “Staying open is not sustainable if this ban stays in effect much longer,” Hagstrom Miller said. “We are grateful for the donors and foundations and folks who have been supporting us in the interim … but the future looks bleak if we can't get some justice here.” Ultimately, the abortion businesses' legal challenge appears to be “doomed,” the report concluded. And that's great news for unborn babies. A new study found that, in just the first month of the law, abortions in Texas went down 50 percent. Since then, Texas abortion facility directors have reported even bigger drops in their abortion numbers, as high as 80 percent compared to the previous year, according to the Texas Tribune. The heartbeat law has the potential to save tens of thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year. In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics. Remaining missionaries kidnapped in Haiti by gang released https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/remaining-missionaries-kidnapped-haiti-gang-released-rcna9010?fbclid=IwAR0acBi61sVy19OtPu-G_kaiJdEj84zWLnILglQvByTNWRW3jF6WHLgd1kw A Haitian gang has released the remaining 12 hostages they had abducted — more than two months after their kidnapping, the Ohio-based religious group they work with announced Thursday.  "We glorify God for answered prayer—the remaining twelve hostages are FREE! Join us in praising God that all seventeen of our loved ones are now safe," said a statement from Christian Aid Ministries. "Thank you for your fervent prayers throughout the past two months. We hope to provide more information as we are able." Haiti National Police Spokesman Gary Desrosiers also confirmed to NBC News that the hostages had been found safe, but would not say where they had been taken. Seventeen people working with the group were kidnapped in October by the 400 Mawozo gang, which controls the Ganthier commune in the suburb of Port-au-Prince where the missionaries were taken. Christian Aid Ministries had previously said that those who were kidnapped were sixteen U.S citizens and one Canadian citizen — six men, six women, and five children. The missionaries were returning from an orphanage, an hour and a half from Christian Aid Ministries Haiti base and often visited by their staff, when they were taken. The group, based in Millersburg, Ohio, repeatedly called for supporters to fast and pray for the safe release of the hostages, at one point earlier this month encouraging Christians to fast for three days. In November, two of the missionaries were released, and another three were freed earlier this month Fight Laugh Feast Magazine DNB Our Fight Laugh Feast Magazine is a quarterly issue that packs a punch like a 21 year Balvenie, no ice.

Winners epitomize great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work. It is presented by the Heisman Trophy Trust in early December before the postseason bowl games. ESPN: Bryce Young is a sophomore and former five-star prospect from California, and he has lived up to the hype, beginning with a four-touchdown performance in a season-opening win over then-No. 14 Miami before going on the road to beat then-No. 11 Florida two weeks later. Despite playing behind a shaky offensive line, he dazzled with his ability to keep calm under pressure, evade the pass rush and find his receivers downfield. An accurate passer, he completed 68.0% of his attempts and didn't throw his first interception of the season until Week 4 against Southern Miss. In the end, Young's Heisman credentials included a sterling 43 passing touchdowns and only four interceptions. A gifted, albeit reticent runner, he also rushed for three scores. But it was down the stretch, in a dramatic come-from-behind win at Auburn to close out the regular season and then by dominating No. 3 Georgia and its top ranked defense in the SEC championship game a week later, that Young sealed his Heisman victory. It's probably a hate crime to point this out, but I'll just note that this young man has an intact family – a father and a mother who obviously loved him, supported him, and trained him to be the strong Christian young man he is today. Some meme recently pointed out that feminists are all about making sure that corporations and boards are made up of at least 50% women, but when it comes to families, apparently they're fine with whatever parenting configuration people want. I just saw some headline that California just registered its first every “throuple” which is a nonsense word meant to describe a couple that consists of three members, in this case three men who are all claiming equal status as parents on the birth certificate of some poor child. But back to my point: where are the feminists screaming that there is a distinct lack of female representation in the raising of this child?  https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/06/us/throuple-three-dads-and-baby-trnd/index.html But you can always tell where a society's highest values are – it's those places where society is most concerned about authority and obedience and rules. In our culture, we most care about civil authority and obedience to those rules and businesses, CEOs and corporate boards. But when it comes to the authority and sanctity of marriage and family, we are fine with however someone wants to wing it because we do not value children, and fundamentally, this tells you that we do not value people. We value products and money and states. But not people, not immortal souls that will live forever. But the more we value products, money, and states, the more it will destroy people, and you will get fewer and fewer Bryce Youngs. But if you are involved in the hard work of marriage and childrearing, then you are in the holy business of making people, forming people, and those people will live forever. Your labors are not in vain. Businesses, states, corporations, and money will all fade and crumble, but those people in the back seat are made in the image of the living God. They are worth it.  AD: DNB AR500 Armor: The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights.

Democratic Governor Declares COVID Emergency Over One Democratic governor says the time for COVID-19 regulations is over and that Americans should exercise personal responsibility over their health. “The emergency is over,” Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said in an interview last week with Colorado Public Radio. “You know, public health [officials] don't get to tell people what to wear; that's just not their job. Public health [officials] would say to always wear a mask because it decreases flu and decreases [other airborne illnesses]. But that's not something that you require; you don't tell people what to wear,” he said. “You don't tell people to wear a jacket when they go out in winter and force them to [wear it]. If they get frostbite, it's their own darn fault. If you haven't been vaccinated, that's your choice. I respect that. But it's your fault when you're in the hospital with COVID,” he said. “Everybody had more than enough opportunity to get vaccinated. Hopefully it's been at your pharmacy, your grocery store, a bus near you, [or at] big events. At this point, if you haven't been vaccinated, it's really your own darn fault,” he told Colorado Public Radio. Polis said that a year after the arrival of vaccines in America should mark the “end of the medical emergency.” Supreme Court Upholds New York Vaccine Mandate https://www.cnn.com/2021/12/13/politics/supreme-court-new-york-vaccine-mandate/index.html The Supreme Court turned away two emergency requests Monday from health care workers, doctors and nurses in New York to block the state's vaccine mandate. Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas dissented. The dispute arose when three nurses and a group called We the Patriots USA, Inc, challenged the mandate, arguing that it allowed exemptions for those with medical objections but not for people with religious objections.  The rule, which is currently in effect, covers workers in hospitals and nursing homes, home health agencies, adult centers as well as hospices. Several doctors who say they have treated many patients with Covid filed a separate request with the justices. So far, the justices have allowed state mandates from Indiana, Maine and New York to go forward suggesting a tolerance for state efforts to fight Covid-19 in the midst of a surge of the Delta variant.  Gorsuch wrote that he would have granted the requests, noting that the doctors and the nurses "have gone to great lengths to serve their patients" during the pandemic. He said that two of the doctors are not "anti-vaxxers who object to all vaccines," but that the sincerity of their religious beliefs should be respected. Gorsuch noted that only recently had New York indicated that religious exemptions would not be accepted and he stressed the fact that the state did accommodate those with non-religious objections to the mandate.  "Even if one were to read the State's actions as something other than signs of animus, they leave little doubt that the re-vised mandate was specifically directed at the applicants' unorthodox religious beliefs and practices," Gorsuch said wrote. He said that most every other state "has found that it can satisfy its COVID-19 public health goals without coercing religious objectors to accept a vaccine." Gorsuch noted the fact that the Pope has encouraged vaccination. He asked, rhetorically, "if so many other religious persons are willing to be vaccinated, it is tempting enough to ask: What can be so wrong with coercing the few who are not?"  Answering his own question, Gorsuch said, "We should know the costs that come when this Court stands silent as majorities invade the constitutional rights of the unpopular and unorthodox."

Holyoke Media, en asociación con WHMP radio, emiten diariamente la Síntesis informativa en español a través del 101.5 FM y en el 1240 / 1400 AM. Esta es la síntesis informativa del lunes 6 de diciembre de 2021: - Funcionarios de salud de EEUU dijeron el domingo que, si bien la variante ómicron del coronavirus se está extendiendo rápidamente por todo el país, los primeros indicios sugieren que puede ser menos peligroso que el delta, que continúa generando un aumento de hospitalizaciones. El asesor médico en jefe del presidente Joe Biden, el Dr. Anthony Fauci, dijo que los científicos necesitan más información antes de sacar conclusiones sobre la gravedad de ómicron. Los informes de Sudáfrica, donde surgió y se está convirtiendo en la cepa dominante, sugieren que las tasas de hospitalización no han aumentado de forma alarmante. Fauci dijo que la administración Biden está considerando levantar las restricciones de viaje contra los no ciudadanos que ingresan a Estados Unidos desde varios países africanos. Se impusieron cuando la variante ómicron explotó en la región, pero el secretario general de la ONU, Antonio Guterres, ha criticado medidas como el "apartheid de viajes". Ómicron se había detectado en aproximadamente un tercio de los estados de EEUU hasta el domingo, incluidos el noreste, el sur, las Grandes llanuras y la costa oeste. Wisconsin, Missouri y Louisiana se encuentran entre los últimos estados en confirmar casos. Pero delta sigue siendo la variante dominante y representa más del 99% de los casos y genera un aumento de las hospitalizaciones en el norte. Los funcionarios estadounidenses continuaron instando a las personas a que se vacunen y reciban inyecciones de refuerzo, así como a tomar precauciones como usar máscaras cuando estén entre extraños en el interior, diciendo que cualquier cosa que ayude a proteger contra delta también ayudará a proteger contra otras variantes. FUENTE: AP - Mientras la Corte Suprema sopesa el futuro de la histórica decisión Roe v. Wade de 1973, un resurgimiento del movimiento contra el aborto busca aprovechar su ventaja en las batallas estado por estado mientras los partidarios del derecho al aborto se preparan para jugar a la defensa. Ambas partes parecen estar operando bajo el supuesto de que un tribunal reformado por el ex presidente Donald Trump revocará o debilitará seriamente a Roe. El Instituto Guttmacher, una organización de investigación que apoya el derecho al aborto estima que hasta 26 estados instituirían algún tipo de restricciones al acceso al aborto dentro de un año, si la corte lo permitiera. Al menos 12 estados tienen "prohibiciones de activación" en los libros, con restricciones que se activarían automáticamente si los jueces revocan o debilitan las protecciones federales sobre el acceso al aborto. El caso actual ante el tribunal, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, se refiere a una ley de Mississippi que prohíbe el aborto después de las 15 semanas de embarazo. Roe v. Wade, que fue reafirmado en un fallo posterior de 1992 en Planned Parenthood v. Casey, permite a los estados regular pero no prohibir el aborto hasta el punto de viabilidad fetal, aproximadamente a las 24 semanas. Pocos quieren revocar a Roe, pero las opiniones sobre el aborto varían ampliamente. El destino del caso de Mississippi no se sabrá durante meses, pero según los argumentos iniciales, Roe parece estar en peligro. Los seis jueces conservadores de la corte, incluidos los nombrados por Trump, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh y Amy Coney Barret, indicaron que respetarían la ley de Mississippi. Se espera el fallo de la Corte Suprema para junio, casi garantizando que el tema dominará las elecciones al Congreso del próximo otoño, así como las carreras a nivel estatal de costa a costa.
