Most students around the country haven’t been to school since March, when large parts of the country began to lock down in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the data increasingly suggests that reopening schools entails the least risks and should be a goal of every level of government.

The early hope was that the closures would be temporary, such as Michigan’s school-closure order that was originally meant to end in April—but that was extended for the rest of the school year.

Now, with the 2020-2021 school year fast approaching, what do we do about schools?

School closures have been a particular burden on families during the pandemic, but new information increasingly shows that school-age children are at the lowest risk of mortality, of severe disease, and possibly of even contracting the virus.

Reopening the schools may be one of the safest activities the nation can restart with tremendous benefit for Americans, and governments should make it their goal to do so.

There are several studies that suggest children are less likely to be infected by the virus. A pediatric organization, Don’t Forget the Bubbles, compiled some of those and found that children were consistently less likely than adults to contract the virus.

For instance, a study from Japan found that the COVID-19 attack rate among those younger than 20—that is to say, the rate at which those exposed become infected—was 5.5%.

Compare that to the attack rate among adults ages 50 to 59, which was 22.1%. The relative risk of children contracting the disease after an exposure was about one-fourth that of adults ages 50 to 59.

We need to wake up our very existence and way of life is being targeted. How did she get elected? this my friends is what the democrats are planing on. Vote Biden or any other democrat that ends up running and this is our future.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality so we cannot stop at the criminal justice system,” Ilhan Omar said. “We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

The crazed Marxist lawmaker called for capitalism to be destroyed in the name of social justice.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality so we cannot stop at the criminal justice system,” Ilhan Omar said. “We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

According documents and sources previously reported by investigative journalist David Steinberg, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar married her own brother in order to defraud US immigration.

In fact, evidence is mounting that Ilhan Omar isn’t even her real name.

Ilhan Omar refuses to answer questions about her fraudulent marriage to her own brother and accuses anyone asking questions of bigotry and Islamophobia.

In February a Somali community leader came forward and confirmed Ilhan Omar married her own brother to get him ‘papers’ to keep him in the US.

Ilhan Omar came to the US illegally and now she’s calling for the overthrow of the current system.

Joe Biden Endorses Abortion ‘Under Any Circumstance’ In Statement After SCOTUS Ruling

 

In a statement praising the Supreme Court for striking down a Louisiana law requiring doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced his support for abortion “under any circumstance,” staking out an extreme position on the issue.

Biden, once a self-proclaimed “pro-life Democrat” stood by his personal opposition to abortion as recently as the 2012 presidential election, when he explained, in a debate against then-Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan, that he was “personally opposed” to the procedure but felt he had no reason to prevent women from exercising “choice.”  STAND FOR LIFE — Pro life news.

The Democrats have become the party of death, even after a child is borne.  My values would never allow me to vote for death.  Life is precious, and the silent scream of abortion should be stopped for good,  Pray for the end of abortion.  #ProLife, #Bablieslivesmatter.

 

 

Independence Day

Freedom is not free. Freedom always cost people something. We may not have to fight a war physically or put on battle gear to keep or sustain our freedom. I believe the real battle that we find in America is simply a battle of ideas. You see today we are in a philosophical Civil War. The future will be determined by our response to our present situation. We must somehow stand firm on the ideas and the principles that this nation was founded on and we must learn to educate others to the greatness and the sovereignty of this great nation. We are a most unusual country in this world, we are the first on the scene of every tragedy, disaster, and war. Our goal is never to take an inch of soil but only to proclaim and procure freedom and justice for the oppressed. We are a beacon of light in a dark world. Long live the United States of America. May God bless this nation.

Boston Votes to Remove Emancipation Memorial in Park Square

A unanimous vote on Tuesday by the Boston Art Commission means the famous Emancipation Memorial — depicting President Abraham Lincoln with a freed slave — will come down.

The statue celebrates the Emancipation Proclamation, which Lincoln signed in 1863 and declares “that all persons held as slaves” within the Confederacy “are, and henceforward shall be free.”

The monument has stood in a park near Boston Common since 1879 and is a replica of the Washington D.C. Emancipation Memorial statue.

The inscription on the statue reads: “A race set free/ and the country at peace / Lincoln / Rests from his labors.”  Story by Ben Wilson  —  Sara A Carter web page.

Do the liberals have any idea what they are doing.  Wouldn’t this be a statue to keep?

Update to Previous Story

The mysterious explosion today at the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran targeted the site where Iran’s centrifuges were manufactured and assembled. The Iranians are in panic mode as it appears to be a series of inside jobs sponsored by an enemy country!

Interesting.  You just never know about the Middle East.  Israel can never allow Iran to go full nuclear.
