HIGH ON HER OWN SUPPLY? Pelosi moves to federally legalize weed while neglecting COVID aid

After months of gridlock on Capitol Hill over a coronavirus stimulus package, Nancy Pelosi is showing America what matters most to her: cannabis and big cats. 

Democratic leadership announced that a bill to federally legalize marijuana will be taken to the House floor Wednesday, while another bill will be reviewed to ban breeding and private ownership of tigers and other big cats. 

Tiger King and cannabis before coronavirus stimulus for families that are suffering? 

Check your priorities, Nancy.  

Republicans, many of whom are big critics of marijuana legalization, took to Twitter to blast Pelosi for her backwards priorities. 

“This week, your House Democrat majority is tackling the tough issues by holding a vote on legalizing pot and banning tiger ownership,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote Monday. “Nothing for small businesses. Nothing for reopening schools. Nothing on battling the pandemic. Just cannabis and cats.” 

After speaking with the media’s president-elect Joe Biden, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said it is a priority to get a stimulus package passed during Congress’ lame-duck session. 

“Secretary Mnuchin said he would be reviewing the proposal Leader Schumer and I made to Leader McConnell and Leader McCarthy last night and the bipartisan Senate proposal unveiled today,” Pelosi said in a statement Tuesday night. “Additional COVID relief is long overdue and must be passed in this lame duck session.”

But, instead, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said the chamber will be considering multiple marijuana bills, including the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, and voting will take place Wednesday through Friday.

    I can’t believe it! Pelosi actually doing something RIGHT! The Federal government never had authority to outlaw marijuana in the first place. (Remember how the US had to amend the constitution to get authority to outlaw alcohol? Same thing…) I don’t use the stuff and have no desire to — but the Feds have no right to criminalize it.

    Frankly right now no American who voted for our president gives a crap about any of this right now. We’re fighting to save the guy we voted for and to SAVE AMERICA FROM GLOBALISM and China, but where are the Republicans helping any of us with this? Its so obvious our chances of winning with the entire govt corruption that has spread like a cancer thru every agency and elected officials are so small. The ONLY way I see we win this is thru the Supreme Court, or a second civil war….and I do pray that we won’t have to do the latter of the two, but there are those preparing for that scenario I’m sure. I’ve always know American politics were corrupt but this is beyond cancerous. I feel like our only chance is Divine intervention…God bless every patriot out there fighting to save our great country.

    The Democrats are unlikely to lift a finger to help desperate Americans until ‘Old Joe’ is safely wheeled up the White House ramp. That way they can blame all the current suffering and economic disaster on “Orange Man Bad” and emerge as benevolent saviors with some pitiful relief package come February. Not to say I’ve been happy with Trump’s performance to date. The moment his campaign saw the election was being stolen he should have declared martial law, froze the process, and rerun the whole thing with in-person voting and paper receipts. Everyone talks about how important our constitutional republic is, but how many are actually willing to defend it?

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

Joe Biden

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.”
