DAN WOOTON: Why did Boris go along with Joe Biden’s absurd mask play-acting? 

DAN WOOTTON: Why did Boris go along with Joe Biden’s absurd mask play-acting instead of using his trip to America to declare that Britain (and the world) are open for business again?

How Biden’s Craven Politics Doomed His Vaccination Plan

When he was running for president in 2020, Joe Biden promised he had a plan to end the Covid-19 pandemic that had crippled the American economy and withered the mood of the nation. 
“I’m not going to shut down the country. I’m not going to shut down the economy. I’m going to shut down the virus,” Biden tweeted just days before election day in 2020. Of course, he had no plan at that time that was in any way different than President Trump’s plan.

How decades of stopping forest fires made them worse

1910’s Big Blow Up remains one of the most disastrous wildfires in US history. Hurricane-force winds fanned and threw embers for miles. Full, flaming trees became dangerous projectiles as they were reportedly torn from the ground. After two days, 3 million acres throughout Idaho and Montana had burned. The devastation had a lasting effect on the United States and shaped US forestry policy for the next century. But it also created a deep misunderstanding of what fire means to a forest.
A century of fire suppression has reshaped our forests.

Biden Is to Blame for the Border Misery

In March of 2020, the Trump administration effectively closed the border, citing the Covid-19 pandemic in order to invoke Title 42, a little-used public health provision in the U.S. code. It quickly became clear that this was not, in fact, necessary to combat the pandemic—it was a pretext to enact the twisted white nationalist fantasies animating the president’s immigration policies.

Black Lives Matter Is Threatening An ‘Uprising’ Against ‘Racist’ Vaccine Mandates

It’s a rule in the national media that vaccine hesitancy is worthy of shame and scorn, right up until it collides with their most precious cause, the Black Lives Matter movement.
Hesitant (white) nurses? Outcast.
Hesitant (white) Facebook moms? Shun.
Hesitant (white) Trump supporters? Guillotine.
But there’s oddly been no prescription for the Black Lives Matter crew in New York who are accusing the city of racial discrimination by mandating vaccines for public, indoor activity.

Democrats still have real options for immigration reform

Democrats’ hopes of including a path to citizenship for the 8 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the US in their upcoming budget reconciliation bill were dashed by a ruling from the Senate parliamentarian. It’s certainly a setback, given that reconciliation looked like their best chance to pass immigration reform this year, but it doesn’t mean that immigration reform has reached a dead end.
