|Critics Stunned by Time Magazine’s Choice of Biden-Harris for 2020 Person of the Year AwardPosted: 11 Dec 2020 12:21 PM PSTThere was immediate pushback to today’s decision by Time magazine to give its historic “Person of the Year” award to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.“Is this a parody?” asked writer Fiona Edwards, “What about the multi million strong Black Lives Matter movement which really played the decisive role in defeating Donald Trump? What about the health workers who have battled the pandemic?” “They haven’t even done anything yet…Totally unimpressed,” responded British author and radio host, Maajid Nawaz. Comedian Dave Anthony was similarly disappointed. “Kamala did so much. She started off having the biggest war chest and then had to drop out before Iowa. Then Biden picked her. And Joe. What can you say about a guy who had 30% enthusiasm, has a hard time speaking and was elected just because he’s not Trump?” he asked.Others were more sardonic. “This is Joe Biden’s year. He not only managed to stay alive until the election, he also did other things, presumably,” replied popular YouTube creator Shaun.Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are TIME’s 2020 Person of the Year #TIMEPOY https://t.co/o97QNlSBrl pic.twitter.com/KuoBoebBN4— TIME (@TIME) December 11, 2020After selecting its youngest ever Person of the Year last year in climate activist Greta Thunberg, the 78-year-old former vice-president is theoldest recipient in the award’s 93-year history. Time announced that it chose Biden and Harris, “For changing the American story, for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of division, for sharing a vision of healing in a grieving world.”Other recent winners include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and U.S. politicians, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and Rudy Giuliani. Going further back, Mahatma Gandhi, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill have also all received the distinction. Perhaps the most controversial selection, however, came in 2006, when it declared that “you” were the Person of the Year, sparking widespread collective eye-rolling.“Time’s Person of the Year is not and never has been an honor. It is not an endorsement,” the magazine wrote in 2007, after selecting Russian President Vladimir Putin. “It is not a popularity contest. At its best, it is a clear-eyed recognition of the world as it is and of the most powerful individuals and forces shaping that world — for better or for worse.” Despite this, it is clear that the magazine is overwhelmingly supportive of the Biden/Harris ticket. In a long exposé article, it praises his leadership, approvingly stating that he “believed most voters simply wanted reconciliation after four years of combat, that they craved decency, dignity, experience and competence.” Harris, meanwhile, is presented as having “electrified millions” through her “charisma and tough questioning of Trump Administration officials.” Unlike Trump, “President-elect Biden takes COVID-19 very, very seriously,” it instructs readers. This must mark a change from March, when he was against CDC guidelines, beseeching his supporters to go to the polls during the Democratic primaries, insisting it was safe to do so when it clearly was not.am i missing something did joe biden do anything significant in the last 12 months besides literally just not be Donald Trump. cause i did that too https://t.co/jHVzaVk3M7— rishi! (@rishipuff) December 11, 2020News of the announcement came just as audio from a private meeting between Biden and civil rights leaders leaked and went viral. In it, he seemed to shut down all their ideas for progressive reforms, including categorically rejecting any idea of defunding police departments. Activist Shaun King noted that his organization was present at the meeting and the 78-year-old Delawarean simply “yelled the whole time.”Amid a pandemic that had cost nearly a quarter of a million American lives by Election Day, Biden managed to limp over the line, beating out the incumbent. However, Democrats failed to take control of the Senate, and lost ground in the House of Representatives, meaning that his four-year term could be one permanent lame duck session. Biden also suffers from a dearth of enthusiasm, with the majority of his voters telling pollsters their vote was cast against Trump, not for him.The TIME people of the year, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, are already telling Black civil rights leaders to shut upi wanna diehttps://t.co/TwyWpeXRwg pic.twitter.com/Ag86rG3S2e— Christo Aivalis ?? (@christoaivalis) December 11, 2020In the leaked interview, Biden appears to acknowledge that, while he won the election, the Democrats’ performance was profoundly disappointing. “That’s how they beat the living hell out of us across the country, saying that we’re talking about defunding the police,” he said, implying that progressive policies were unpopular. Others have argued the opposite, that, perhaps in the year of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter it was not a good decision to select a segregationist who wrote the 1994 Crime Bill and California’s “top cop” as the ticket.Republished from MintPressNews.com under Creative CommonsThe post Critics Stunned by Time Magazine’s Choice of Biden-Harris for 2020 Person of the Year Award appeared first on We Are Change.|
|Australia Cancels COVID Vaccine Trial Over “Unexpected” False Positives for HIVPosted: 11 Dec 2020 11:41 AM PSTThe Australian government has canceled further development of a COVID-19 vaccine after several trial participants had false positive tests for HIV. The vaccine was being developed by the University of Queensland, while Australian biotech company CSL Limited had been under contract to provide 51 million doses. The vaccine had been on schedule for mid-2021, with phase two and three clinical trials due to commence in December.On Friday, however, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that the “University of Queensland vaccine will not be able to proceed based on the scientific advice, and that will no longer feature as part of Australia’s vaccine plan,” adding “I think the decision we’ve made today should give Australians great assurance that we are proceeding carefully, we are moving swiftly, but not with any undue haste here.”“Our processes will not be compromised. At the end of the day, the Therapeutic Goods Administration – like with any vaccine in Australia – must give their tick-off. Without the tick, there’s no jab when it comes to vaccines in this country. That is true for the Covid-19 vaccine, as it is true for any other vaccine that is administered here in Australia,” Morrison added.The vaccine was one of four secured by the Australian government, which will now turn its focus to the AstraZeneca vaccine as well as Pfizer’s.The Government will now look to the AstraZeneca vaccine for Australians.— 10 News First (@10NewsFirst) December 10, 2020CSL said in a Friday statement that “following consultation with the Australian government, CSL will not progress the vaccine candidate to phase 2/3 clinical trials.”According toAustralia’s 10 News, the decision to drop the University of Queensland vaccine was over fears that the false positive results would scare Australians away from the vaccine, despite the fact that patients had not actually contracted the disease.The now-canceled vaxx focused on the COVID-19 “spike protein” using ‘molecular clamp technology’ to lock the protein into a shape which the human immune system can identify and neutralize. To ensure an immune response, the clamp chosen to trick the immune system into attacking includes two fragments of a protein found in HIV, which by themselves do not pose a threat.Trial participants were advised of the possibility that vaccine-induced HIV antibodies might be detected as a result, but it was nonetheless unexpected. Subsequent HIV tests provided definitive negative results in the trial participants.While the HIV tests were false positives and there was no risk to the trial participants, significant changes would need to be made to well-established HIV testing procedures to accommodate rollout of this vaccine, the researchers said. The Phase 1 trial will continue, where further analysis of the data will show how long the antibodies persist. –The GuardianProfessor Paul Young, co-lead researcher on the vaccine, said that it would be possible to re-engineer it to avoid false positives but there wasn’t enough time. “Doing so would set back development by another 12 or so months, and while this is a tough decision to take, the urgent need for a vaccine has to be everyone’s priority,” he said.Health Minister Greg Hunt said that while the HIV test results were false, “the scientific advice is that the risk to vaccine confidence was the principal issue here.”Australia, meanwhile, has secured contracts for 140 million doses of vaccine, “one of the highest ratios of vaccine purchases and availability to population in the world” according to Hunt, who added “What we can do is vaccinate our population twice over.”Republished from ZeroHedge.com with permissionThe post Australia Cancels COVID Vaccine Trial Over “Unexpected” False Positives for HIV appeared first on We Are Change.|
|US Attorney General Concealed Hunter Biden Probes From Public During ElectionPosted: 10 Dec 2020 09:35 PM PSTAttorney General William Barr knew about several investigations into Hunter Biden since at least this spring – and “worked to avoid their public disclosure during the heated election campaign,” according to the Wall Street Journal.According to ‘a person familiar with the matter,’ Barr “staved off pressure from Republicans in Congress for information into the investigations,” while President Trump and his allies pressured Barr into pursuing Joe and Hunter Biden.This week, Hunter Biden revealed the existence of one of the investigations after federal investigators served him with a subpoena seeking detailed financial information in connection with a criminal tax investigation by the Delaware US attorney’s office.The next day, CNN and Politico confirmed that the probe was wider than that, and covered potential money laundering and bribery in probes that date back to 2018, according to ‘people familiar with the matter.’According to the report, none of the investigations implicate Joe Biden.Republished from ZeroHedge.com with permissionThe post US Attorney General Concealed Hunter Biden Probes From Public During Election appeared first on We Are Change.|
Beautiful and amazing human being,
They want us to be at war forever.
In the video above, I do a deep dive for you on the NDAA that Trump’s been threatening to veto but the House has passed on a veto-proof vote.
This gigantic military spending bill has some insane provisions like it allows the US government to purchase Chinese spy drones and use them however they want.
And Congress is trying to stop Trump from pulling the troops out of Afghanistan and to make it so the president needs to get congressional approval in order to start a war but not to end one.
Rand Paul’s the only one trying to stop this.
I also get into how the Afghanistan Papers reveal there is no reason at all the US is still in Afghanistan, Biden and Harris being named “person of the year” and jab takers in Australia having false positive tests for HIV.
And speaking of the technocratic tyranny in Australia, the country now has a surveillance bill that would allow government agents to interrogate 14 year olds and could make journalists face 5 years in jail for refusing to disclose their sources
Which you can hear more about in today’s video.
