CA School Board

Members of a California school board were caught on video making fun of parents desperate to get their kids back in school after being forced to learn remotely due to the pandemic. According to the New York Post, the call of the Oakley School Board’s virtual meeting was “accidentally to the public when they were making fun of parent requests.”

Angry at parents’ requests to put children back in school, president Lisa Brizendine said, “they forget there are real people on the other side of those letters that they’re writing…it’s really unfortunate they want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back.” The other board members chimed in; one said of the parents’ requests, “if you’re gonna call me out, I’m gonna f— you up.”

All four members of the Oakley Elementary School District board resigned on Friday after the video circulated online after it was posted by the account “Reopen California schools,” prompting an online petition for the board members to resign.

Schools Superintendent Greg Hetrick spoke to Fox News stating, “the comments made were not in alignment with our vision and are definitely not what any of us stand for as leaders. I know that we lost trust with the community. I will not make excuses for what happened or why it happened.”

California is just one of hundreds of thousands of schools across the U.S. whose parents are trying to get school to return to in-person learning with teachers in classrooms. Many students have faced spending an entire school year learning remotely. “Meanwhile, the White House is facing scrutiny for shifting language around President Biden’s 100-day push for students to return to classrooms amid the coronavirus pandemic” reports Fox News.

    If liberal school teachers do not want to work, then FIRE THEM ALL and hire conservative teachers who DO want to work! This sham of a “Plandemic” (or “Scamdemic”- which ever you prefer) has gone on long enough! Time for kids to get back in school…

    I would rather home school my kids than place them in the care of these heartless narcissists.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
