EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): For months on end we have been witnessing establishment politicians and technocrats give ample advice to all of us, lockdown the economy, close restaurants and schools and destroy human lives… And make decisions as if they were Gods… At the same time, we are monitoring these same people, who almost without exception belong to the liberal left, break their own rules and enjoy their life as if they themselves are above their own orders.
The latest examples of hypocrisy come from Dr.Birx “the scarf lady”, the White House coordinator for covid-19 who, after giving advice to all of us to avoid Thanksgiving family gatherings … spent Thanksgiving with her full family… And Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who, at age 33 and having no risk from the virus, rushed to be vaccinated…
Dr.Birx decided to retire after the inauguration, while AOC will be annoying us for years to come it seems…
HERE IS THE BIRX STORY
- Birx traveled to one of her vacation properties on Fenwick Island on Black Friday
- She was accompanied by her husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids
- ‘I did not go to Delaware for the purpose of celebrating Thanksgiving,’ Birx said
- She said the purpose of the visit was to deal with the winterization of the home
- And said that everyone on her Delaware trip belongs to her ‘immediate household,’ even as she acknowledged they live in two different homes
- Birx has expressed a desire to maintain a significant role on the White House coronavirus task force when Joe Biden is inaugurated next month, reports say
Deborah Birx ignored her own Thanksgiving advice traveling to her Delaware vacation home with three generations of her family from two different households.
The coordinator of the White House coronavirus response was accompanied by her husband Paige Reffe, one of her daughters, son-in-law and two grandchildren for the Black Friday trip.
She had warned Americans to ‘be vigilant’ and limit celebrations to ‘your immediate household.’
But Dr Birx, 64, insists the roughly 50 hour trip to Fenwick Island was to deal with the winterization of the property before a potential sale – something she says she previously hadn’t had time to do because of her busy schedule.
‘I did not go to Delaware for the purpose of celebrating Thanksgiving,’ Birx said in her statement, adding that her family shared a meal together while in Delaware.
Birx, who has two adult daughters Devynn and Danielle, declined to be interviewed by The Associated Press but said that everyone on her Delaware trip belongs to her ‘immediate household,’ even as she acknowledged they live in two different homes.
The pandemic is delivering its most fearsome surge yet, killing more than 3,000 victims per day and straining the health care system.
As of Sunday morning the U.S. has more than 17.6 million confirmed cases of coronavirus and more than 316,000 deaths – meaning the death rate sit at around 0.017 per cent in the U.S.=========================================
BELOW THE STORY OF ALEXANDRIA OCASIO CORTEZ FROM NY POST
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recorded her experience getting the COVID-19 vaccine and shared it with her 8.2 million Instagram followers.
The freshman representative of parts of The Bronx and Queens on Friday night shared video of herself in the lead-up to the shot — including filling out a questionnaire — the injection itself, as well as how she felt afterward.
“I would would never, ever ask you to do something I wasn’t willing to do myself,” she wrote in the post.
The Democratic socialist also answered questions from followers, saying she was experiencing some minor symptoms after the inoculation.
“I have a little muscle soreness in my arm which is not unusual with any shot. The second thing that I’m feeling is fatigue — but also, it’s been a really long time since I had a break,” the rep said, alluding to the weekend’s marathon session on Capitol Hill.
Ocasio-Cortez also tried to explain in layman’s terms how the mRNA vaccine differs from a traditional inoculation — by teaching cells how to make a protein that triggers an immune response, instead of injecting the patient with a weakened or inactivated strain of the virus.
“It’s kind of like the difference between if you had a burglar and then he broke into your house and you learn to fight him versus if someone gave you a picture of the burglar … if you see that picture and you see that guy walking towards your house, you’re like ‘oh I know that guy, he’s a burglar,’” the 31-year-old said.
Ocasio-Cortez said she and other members of the House of Representatives were being “urged to take [the vaccine] as part of the government’s plan,” adding in her post that the measure was “in accordance with national security protocols.”
But the video didn’t go down well with all of her followers — with some questioning why politicians were getting the shot before many health care workers had received theirs.
“AOC, I love you, but I’m a nurse and I’m still waiting to get mine so what exactly qualifies politicians to get a vaccine before healthcare workers?” one follower commented.
“Why are you getting this before health care workers? I put breathing tubes in people’s airways for 13hrs a day,” griped another.
“This feels as self-serving as every other politician. It’s disappointing and a slap in the face to those of us who have showed up since March to care for others. National Security won’t be impacted by my shifts this week with COVID patients at an all time high in the hospital and no vaccine in sight.. but I’ll still providing anesthesia to very sick people and not seeing my family while politicians get prioritized over me and my coworkers. Enjoy your time off with your vaccine.. I’ll be standing in the n95 for 13+hrs a day.
