“Haha, Haha” no way am I going back to work Uncle Joe. You see, I am so happy here on my couch watching that big screen TV that you paid for. Oh BTW, thanks for the reduced rent. You know how it is when you are unemployed, don’t you? Any additional money is more than welcome. Ask Hunter about that.
My former employer, Hotel America, is in the market for employees, but has a problem recruiting them. Why work when us ex employees are on the dole to the tune of $20 per hour; you know that works out to $40,000 per year. They are offering $15 per hour, can’t survive on that. Three mouths to feed with one on the way. And those food stamps help too.
What really was a bonanza though Uncle Joe, or should I call you China Joe. You see, so far I have raked in almost $15,000 large. I’m so glad that the IRS has employees; printing checks is so important to us folks. Not in my lifetime did I ever think that a windfall like that would come my way. So a hearty thanks to you, Uncle Joe. You got my vote in 2024.
Marriott CEO: Finding new hotel employees has been tough as demand spikes
Marriott CEO Tony Capuano says demand to stay at his hotels is recovering rapidly as people get their COVID-19 vaccine. But, finding new employees to service that spike in demand is proving to be a challenge right now.
“We have had some labor challenges in those leisure destinations where we have seen demand spike so quickly,” Capuano said on Yahoo Finance Live. “So in South Florida, Texas, Arizona we are running job fairs and we are providing some one-time hiring incentives to get the hotels staffed.”
Marriott isn’t alone in ramping up efforts to attract new workers (and retain current ones) amid a very tight labor market.
Chipotle said Monday it would lift the average hourly wage for its restaurant workers to $15. The company is also offering employee referral bonuses of $200 for restaurant workers and $750 for general managers. The burrito chain is looking to fill 20,000 restaurant positions.
Meanwhile, convenience store chain Sheetz said Monday it would hike the hourly rate for all of its 18,000 employees by $2 on May 21. It will also pay employees an added $1 an hour this summer.
The efforts come in the wake of a surprisingly lackluster April jobs report.
“Lock him up”, Tony Fauci, guilty as charged. It was he who funded, developed and spread the China Virus. Do not dismiss this information provided by Tucker Carlson, but as we alluded to numerous times, the China Virus was developed in Wuhan, China, not the wet market blame spread by China’s lap dog WHO.
“We have deep concerns about the way in which the early findings of the COVID-19 investigation were communicated and questions about the process used to reach them,” National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a lengthy statement. “It is imperative that this report be independent, with expert findings free from intervention or alteration by the Chinese government.”
A Chinese virologist claims that the new coronavirus was created in lab in Wuhan and has vowed to publish proof that backs up her allegations. Dr Li Meng-Yan, a researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, had previously accused Beijing of covering up the outbreak in Wuhan.
The WHO has sought to manage expectations of a definitive conclusion to the origins of the Covid pandemic. To put the mission in a broader context, it took more than a decade to find the origins of SARS, while the origins of Ebola — first identified in the 1970s — is still not yet known.
It is hoped that information of the earliest known cases of the coronavirus, first detected in Wuhan in late 2019, could help to identify how the outbreak started and prevent future pandemics
Nevertheless, in 2014, under pressure from the Obama administration, the National of Institutes of Health instituted a moratorium on the work, suspending 21 studies.
Three years later, though—in December 2017—the NIH ended the moratorium and the second phase of the NIAID project, which included the gain-of-function research, began. The NIH established a framework for determining how the research would go forward: scientists have to get approval from a panel of experts, who would decide whether the risks were justified.
Lab leak ‘extremely unlikely’
A theory that the coronavirus was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was discredited by the WHO investigators. The hypothesis had been perpetuated by former President Donald Trump’s administration, without the weight of evidence, and strenuously denied by Chinese officials.
“The laboratory incident hypothesis is extremely unlikely to explain the introduction of the virus into the human population,” Ben Embarek said. “Therefore, [it] is not in the hypotheses that we will suggest for future studies.”
The team had reached the conclusion that a lab leak should be regarded as extremely unlikely “on the basis of a serious discussion and very diligent research,” added Liang Wannian, head of the expert Covid panel at China’s National Health Commission.Minks are seen at a farm in Gjol, northern Denmark on October 9, 2020.
Speaking alongside Ben Embarek from the Hilton Optics Valley Hotel in Wuhan, Liang said ongoing research into the origins of the virus must focus on how it circulated in animals before infecting humans.
Bats and pangolins are potential candidates for transmission, Liang said, but samples from these species were not found to be “sufficiently similar” to the coronavirus.
The high susceptibility of minks and cats to the virus indicates there may be other animals that serve as reservoirs, Liang continued, but research remains inconclusive.
China’s National Health Commission spokesperson said there could have been an unreported circulation of the coronavirus before it was detected in Wuhan. However, Liang said there was no evidence of substantial Covid circulation in Wuhan before the late 2019 outbreak.
The WHO has previously cited genetic sequencing that showed the coronavirus had started in bats and likely jumped to another animal before infecting humans.
Many of the people who had fallen ill with the new virus in Wuhan, a city with a population of roughly 11 million, were reported to have had links to the Huanan Seafood Market.
Scientists initially suspected the virus came from wild animals sold at the seafood market, prompting China to swiftly restrict public access to the market at the beginning of last year.
China’s CDC has since said samples taken from the seafood market suggest it was a place where the virus spread, not where the outbreak first emerged.
On Tuesday, Liang said the Huanan Seafood Market was one of the places where the coronavirus first emerged, but he added it was not possible with current evidence to determine how the virus was introduced to the seafood market.Security personnel stand guard outside the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan as members of the World Health Organization (WHO) team investigating the origins of the COVID-19 coronavirus make a visit to the institute in Wuhan in China’s central Hubei province on February 3, 2021.
The origins of the coronavirus remain important because the virus is constantly evolving, as highly infectious mutant strains identified in the U.K. and South Africa demonstrate.
More than 106 million people have contracted the coronavirus worldwide, killing at least 2.32 million people, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The U.S., by far, has reported the highest number of confirmed Covid cases and deaths, with more than 27 million reported infections and 465,072 fatalities.
China has published little information on its research into the origins of the virus, and there had been widespread international concern about what the researchers in Wuhan will be allowed to see and do as part of their investigation.
The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 – known as SARS-CoV-2 – was first identified in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in January 2020, and most scientists believe it is still most likely that it originated in China.
Peter Ben Embarek, WHO expert on food safety and zoonotic diseases, said Wuhan offered “the first solid clues” about the transmission of COVID-19 and any investigation would start there.
Many of the earliest reported cases had no connection with the market. On Dec. 10, 2019, 41 Wuhan residents were hospitalised with what turned out to be COVID-19, but 13 of them had no link to Huanan.
A team of Chinese researchers said there were two types of SARS-CoV-2 circulating in Wuhan, only one of which was associated with the market.
Scientists also said the virus was unusually “pre-adapted” for rapid human transmission, making it unlikely that the first human contact was made at the seafood market.
Though there is no credible supporting evidence, some researchers still do not rule out the possibility that the virus was released accidentally by a specialist lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
There is no indication that SARS-Cov-2 contains any synthetic insertions, but some researchers say it could have been subject to a process known as “gain of function”, where the lab forces the virus to become more infectious by exposing it to human receptor cells.
First it was salt, then spice, then paper, but in the end it was gold. They tried them all, as they say, “you can fool some of the people, some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.” And it has come to pass, the “ALMIGHTY DOLLAR” is slowly dissolving like the piece of paper it is printed on. Don’t take our word for it though, check the status of soon to be reserve currencies, like the Chinese renminbi (aka yuan) or perhaps the Russian ruble. Don’t despair, the cryptocurrency world is at your fingertips. If that doesn’t suit you, GO FOR THE GOLD, but SILVER will do just fine. To those of the initiated, they know where the price is headed, and that is north. The everlasting obituary is premature, the body has not been declared mortal. And as the eternal rays provide life to all, the man who has gold in his hand will endure for a lifetime.
Gold has been on a tear of late, rising from the mid 1700’s to the 1840 level. The sign of inflation is in the air. A whiff of the third quarter numbers will reveal what is in the black box. Our guess, and it is only a guess, we are not economists, places the number at 3.5%. You can’t keep a good man down, can you. The second quarter won’t be that horrible though, somewhere in the 2.5% range. Don’t forget that the Biden team has their thumb on the scale. And to make a salient point, economists are always right, it is the timing that is wrong. BTW, they have predicted 8 of the last 4 recessions. Batting 50% is a admirable achievement in most sports.
Billionaire investor Sam Zell is also now buying gold, despite decades of criticizing those who purchase it, reports ETF Trends. Zell says it is because these monetary policies may create inflation like the 1970s and gold could be a hedge.
Obama was a cool dude. He had charisma. His public appearance were well choreographed, his words parsed with panache. However, when the situation came up that involved race, he surreptitiously created a brushfire one that divided the country. How so? For instance, in the Trayvon Martin affair, Obama said, “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” On the other hand US President Barack Obama has said police officers “acted stupidly” when they arrested a black professor who they thought was trying to break into a house. Harvard University professor Henry Gates was forcing open the door to his Massachusetts home when police were called. He showed them his identification but they arrested him, saying he was being loud and tumultuous. Professor Gates said he was targeted because he was black. In this case we agree with Obama. The police were ardent racists, typical of a bad apple in the barrel. But overall most policemen are there to help, keep order, protect and serve.
In both cases, Obama was implying that Blacks are always under suspicion no matter where they live, what their education level is, in their work environment and out in public. Of course, from our perspective that is not the way we see it. As an example, the great city of Chicago has an image problem because 750 people were killed last year, the majority of them resided in the South Side. Those killings very rarely occurred outside the hood but an outsider’s view is a whole lot different. To the initiated, seeing Chicago, Obama’s hometown, as a killing field is not true. Those who live and work there have no problem walking the streets at night. Although they are mindful of the societal breakdown in the Southside. Two different views, two different perspectives; a microcosm window into the macrocosm of country life.
Like the Mafia, Obama was the Capo de Tutti, his captain was another avowed racist; Eric Holder played that role. In fact Holder, like Obama, never let a crisis go to waste. Holder, “Tea Party warnings about the direction of the country – were in part racially motivated. “There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president. You know, people talking about taking their country back.” “There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.” “though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.”v
The attorney general was outspoken in his condemnation of Republican-dominated legislatures that have passed new voter ID laws that have been decried as thinly-veiled attempts to restrict black voters’ access to the polls. The Department of Justice is currently suing Texas and North Carolina over their new voter ID legislation, and is expected to do the same in Ohio and Wisconsin. “I’m attorney general of the United States. I will not stand for – I will not allow people to take away that which people gave their lives to give, and that is the ability for the American people to vote,” he said.
In May 2009, Holder’s Department of Justice completed a civil suit originally brought by J. Christian Adams of the Bush Justice Department against the New Black Panther Party, its chairman, and two of its members for voter intimidation due to their conduct during the 2008 election. Two members of the Party had stood outside a polling station during the election in paramilitary uniforms, one carrying a nightstick. Claiming a lack of evidence, the Department of Justice dropped charges against the party, its chairman, and one of the two members who had stood outside the polling station. There is no doubt Holder’s decision not to prosecute was based on race.
This PARAGRAPH IS LEFT BLANK – WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU REFER TO SOCIAL MEDIA FOR FIRST HAND PROVOCATIONS COMMITTED BY A HATE FILLED WORLD
Their modus operandi is to stir the racial cauldron; in their continuing effort to keep Jim Crow alive. However, they have failed to provide proof of people of Color not being able to cast a ballot. Pulling the race card makes good theater. Obama, half White, Holder most likely the the recipient of White blood should be “TALKING UP AMERICA.” They are the quintessential examples of freedom, liberty, justice and most of all the “pursuit of happiness that they enjoy by being citizens of the United States. How did they make in a racist society? We know that White America is the least racist society on Earth. But because some segments of the populations feel they are entitled to everything doesn’t mean White America is to blame. Look in the mirror. Our advice to those, open up your ears and listen for a change. Just because we don’t agree with your agenda doesn’t mean we are Racist. Take that to the bank.
Arizona Republicans i.e. Trump cohorts, are attempting to engage in a forensic evaluation of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot tabulation. They have hired an outside company to perform analytic technology including door to door, people to people matching of votes. However, the Libtards are suing.
Federal judge to hear lawsuit Tuesday against Arizona’s election results
Center that gave out grants funded by Mark Zuckerberg to set up drive-by voting during pandemic calls claims in new Arizona lawsuit baseless, frivolous.
In legal papers filed in federal court, Deputy Maricopa County Attorney Tim Liddy said the lawsuit, filed by the 11 Republicans who hope to be electors for President Trump, is “woefully deficient.”
He said the claim is based on “conspiracy-theory laden, unsigned, redacted declarations making wild accusations” about Dominion Software, which provides election equipment to the county.
And Liddy told U.S. District Court Judge Diane Humetewa that claims of hundreds of thousands of illegal votes appear to have come “out of thin air,” calling the lawsuit a “fishing expedition.”
Roopali Desai, representing Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, was even more direct in saying there’s nothing to the allegations of a conspiracy to throw the election to Biden.
Republican challengers contend that conspiracy involves Dominion and its officers converting Trump votes into votes for Biden.
“Plaintiffs allege that this plan somehow originated in Venezuela more than a decade ago, over the year enlisted ‘rogue actors’ from various ‘countries such as Serbia’ and ‘foreign interference by Iran and China,’ compromised voting machines and software in states across the country in this election, and was ultimately executed with the assistance of thousands of Democratic, Republican, and nonpartisan election officials despite the presence of both parties in numerous states across the country, including Arizona,” Desai told Humetewa. She called it “dystopian fiction.”
SO WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF? If the election was on the “up and up” it would prove that Trump did not, after all the conspiracy talk, win Arizona. But for some reason which can only be that they do not want the truth to come out are adamantly against a forensic recount. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
The Republicans should learn from this. Sue Sue, Sue
Facebook is run by the ruthless liberal progressive radicals. Shutting Trump down is akin to being an advocate for the Socialist Democrat party, a pro bono effort actively pursuing an activist agenda in tandem with the Democrats. Effectively they are providing free propaganda for the Libtards, BLM and ANTIFA.
Where are those BIG MOUTH REPUBLICANS who have the cajones to bring suit against them. Are they hiding? When it comes to walking the walk, most are only talk.
These monmouth corporations are in violation of Federal law. Sue them. Take them all the way to the Supreme Court. Wake up Dummies. The following quote is ascribed to Lenin, “When it comes time to hang the capitalists, they will vie with each other for the rope contract. What else do you need, wake up. A suicide bomber perhaps will get you out of your slumber. Can’t you understand we are not playing games here. This is a Blood Sport; you haven’t figure that out yet? Seems you always come to a gunfight without a gun. No wonder you are all losers.

Democrats’ quest to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state hit a big roadblock this week in the form of a fellow Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he opposed Congress alone creating the new state and he believes, like Republicans have argued, that statehood for the nation’s capital needs to be done through a constitutional amendment.
In a 50-50 split Senate, D.C. statehood already had a tough shot of becoming a reality because as long as the legislative filibuster is in place the proposal would require 60 votes to advance. Republicans have been squarely opposed to elevating the federal district to statehood status arguing it’s an unconstitutional powerplay by Democrats to add two more liberal senators to the upper chamber.
MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross doubled down on her network’s criticism of Senator Tim Scott, R-S.C., on Saturday morning’s “The Cross Connection,” calling him a “stone fool” and a “clown.”
Cross’ comments were in reference to Scott’s Republican rebuttal of President Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress Wednesday, a speech for which the senator received glowing praise from Republicans and harsh criticism from left-wing media.
Her criticisms were also in response to a challenge from The Root’s Michael Harriot to name a “political, social, or economic institution in America where widespread disparities and discrimination does not exist.”
“OREO” is a derogatory term that Democrat Libtards call Black Conservatives. Black Republicans are heroes who have challenged the conventional Plantation run by progressive criminals. Succinctly, an OREO refers to a Black on the outside, but White on the inside. So to those hypocrites from the swamp who preach hate, the thought of a Black Man honoring our Country, supporting the Constitution and members of law enforcement, try to ridicule them by comparing them with a Oreo Cookies. How shameful. This type of behavior is not befitting of any official of the Democrat party.
Texas Democrat Facing Calls to Resign after Calling Tim Scott an ‘Oreo’.
A Texas Democratic official is facing calls to resign from his post after calling Senator Tim Scott (R., S.C.) a racial slur.
After Scott delivered his rebuttal speech to President Biden’s congressional address on Wednesday, Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor called Scott an “oreo,” a slur that refers to a black person who is seen as “having adopted the attitudes, values and behavior thought to be characteristic of middle-class white society, often at the expense of his or her own heritage,” according to Dictionary.com.
The final score 5-1; the game will be played tomorrow. These tactics utilized by the Communists in days gone by didn’t predict the future, they created it out of thin air. Don’t be surprised if they still do. As an example, Russia hockey team is to play Belarus tomorrow. Belarus has a superior team, but under the Russian aegis, the Politburo sets the final score. And as scripted, the next day, Russia beats Belarus by a score of 5-1. So don’t be surprised if the Thugracracy has not pulled off the same play here.
THE FOLLOWING STORY WILL GET YOUR BLOOD FLOWING – NOT ONLY DID THEY MASSAGE THE FINAL COUNT, THE GULF BETWEEN THE ESTIMATES AND REPORTED NUMBERS WERE A GLOWING EXAMPLE OF THUGACRACY IN ACTION
The Census data has been released, but instead of the Department of Census, the release was shoved out by the White House. Isn’t that interesting. Now several Republican Senators are questioning the final count; and they should.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Attorney General of Alabama and Rep. Robert Aderholt filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Census Bureau on Wednesday, alleging that 2020 census data was being intentionally manipulated ahead of this year’s redistricting efforts. The lawsuit also claims that the Bureau was deliberately delaying its reporting of the Census results to Congress.
Republicans cite departures from census estimates in letter to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo.
More than a dozen HouseRepublicans Friday are questioning Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo on whether there “was any political interference” in the final census numbers used to decide how many House members each state will get for the coming decade.
The letter, first obtained by Fox News, is led by Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee.
The Republican House members cited gaps between the number of House seats some right-leaning states were projected to gain — or some left-leaning states were projected to lose — and the final results announced this week. hey told Raimondo, overseeing the Census Bureau, that they “have questions about the methodology and the role the Biden White House may have played in releasing these numbers.”
“The apportionment population results released by the Census Bureau are strikingly different from the population evaluation estimates released just months ago on December 22, 2020,” the GOP members wrote. “Remarkably, the differences benefit traditionally blue states – which gained population compared to the estimates – over red states which tended to lose population compared to the estimates.”
According to the Census Bureau, differences between the estimates the Republican members cite and the final census apportionment results are “typically interpreted as error in the estimates and are used to inform research and methodological improvements over the decade.” But Comer and the other Republicans on the letter ask Raimondo if the break between estimates and the census results may be the result of something else.
“This trend calls into question whether there was any political interference with the apportionment results released by the Census Bureau,” they write.
The GOP group asks Raimondo for a trove of documents, including communications between the Census Bureau and the White House, and whether the counting of illegal aliens in the congressional apportionment may have had an effect on the final result. Past decennial counts have counted illegal aliens.
