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 Admin Announces First COVID Shots For Kids Under 5 Likely By June 21

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that children under 5 will be able to get their first COVID-19 vaccination doses as soon as June 21, if regulators authorize the shots for this age group as expected.

According to the Associated Press, White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha “said the Food and Drug Administration’s outside panel of advisers will meet on June 14-15 to evaluate the Pfizer and Moderna shots for younger kids. Shipments to doctors’ offices and pediatric care facilities would begin soon after FDA authorization, with the first shots possible the following week.”

Jha added that states can begin placing orders for the pediatric vaccines on Friday and the administration will initially have 10 million doses available.

“Our expectation is that within weeks every parent who wants their child to get vaccinated will be able to get an appointment,” Jha said. “At the end of the day we all want to move fast, but we’ve got to get it right.”

The news comes the week after Pfizer announced that three doses of their vaccine offers strong protection against COVID-19 in children under 5.  However, according to former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a third dose is unnecessary because the vaccines do not prevent infection.

“I think the decision matrix has changed around the vaccine for [ages] 6 months to 4 years old and so far as we know that the vaccine isn’t as protective at preventing infection,” Gottlieb said. “Previously, we had data showing that the childhood vaccine for 6 months to 4 years wasn’t as protective against infection as the adult vaccine.”

“That’s the reason why they pushed it out and asked for that third dose. But now, if the goal of the vaccine is to get baseline immunity in the kids to prevent really bad outcomes, and you’re really not using the vaccine as a tool to prevent infection in the first place, two doses could do that,” he added.

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”
