  1. I think that we may be getting incomplete information, to put it politely. If we are lucky and the US dollar is still accepted as a reserve currency in the future, after the inevitable, TRILLIONS that the banksters' "Fed" is doubtless creating now secretly to bailout the banksters, as it reportedly used $29 TRILLION to bail out Wall Street in 2008-12, so non-bankster bailouts can continue, more GIGANTIC bailouts are inevitable. See “$29,000,000,000,000: A Detailed Look at the Fed’s Bailout by Funding Facility and Recipient” by Levyeconomicsinstitute d o t o r g. See “The Dark Secrets in the Fed’s Last Wall Street Bailout Are Getting a Devious Makeover in Today’s Bailout” in counterpunch d o t o r g.

    I have hesitated before writing this publicly. However, the fact that the South African Covid variant and other variants, with very distinct death rates, etc., have evolved in only one year, is too disturbing. This is almost like a much less deadly Ebola evolving regularly like the common cold.

    Certainly, the Pfizer vaccine can be supplemented (probably with RNA from the portion of the new variants' different, genetically distinct, spike proteins.) Unfortunately, as you may have realized from the scientific literature, new, distinct virus variants (Covid V3 then V4 then V5 then V6, etc.) will keep being created in the millions infected in all countries of the world each week or each month or each season, etc.

    This will continue forever or until absolutely all are vaccinated and Covid goes the way of small pox. If we are lucky, that may be in 2025 to 2030.

    Thus, I think that we are now in the same place as in early 2020, when I predicted that by closing only the border with China but not closing all the borders of the US and also imposing mandatory quarantines, the original virus would spread and predicted that there would be hundreds of thousands of deaths based on the math, rate of deaths, and infectiousness of the original virus variant.

    If these new variants can arise so quickly and evade the immune system so rapidly as the South African variant reportedly has, the government must again (1) close all borders with any countries that do not have their own, carefully monitored, quarantine procedures for their inbound travelers, (2) perform mass, exhaustive, random Covid testing to discover (and create vaccines for) all potentially problematic, natively-created and imported variants, and (3) also impose mandatory, carefully monitored quarantines on those much fewer travelers still allowed into the USA, presumably only US citizens and their immediate family, e.g., in prefabs in some desert area of Nevada, away from population centers. See nature's "Fast-spreading COVID variant can elude immune responses."

    Otherwise, we may have an unpleasant surprise later this year or in 2022 or 2023, etc. (US variants might naturally mutate and may give us such a surprise even if all borders were completely closed.) This will be a continuing race that we may just barely win or just barely lose: e.g., even though the vaccines can be supplemented with RNA for V3's spike protein, can we really be sure that the modified vaccines for V2 then V3 the V4 then V5, etc., (with modified RNA for the new variants) will be safe just because the original vaccine (with only the RNA of the original variant) was perfectly safe?

    What about the next modifications of the vaccines (for variants v3, v4, v5, V6, etc.) that will be needed with the RNA of the later variants that likely will evolve while we are currently preparing a modified vaccine (v2) for the S. African variant? There is already a California variant, which it was just discovered, mixed with another variant! See "Two coronavirus variants have merged – here's what you need to know" in the new scientist.

    At what point is the new vaccine modification so different that we need more year long studies while people are dying? We surely do not know all the variants that are loose even currently in the USA, because the prior leadership did not invest in exhaustive, mass, random testing in all states, like the UK and other countries reportedly do.

    While most of the world remains unvaccinated, more and more variants will be evolving in each country each year. They will eventually come in with travelers to the USA. Who knows if an RNA vaccine created with the RNA of a new variant might not mess up our cell's basic functions?

    I am not a vaccine doubter, in general. I hope to get injected with the current RNA vaccines ASAP. Nonetheless, remember that the RNA from the Covid virus's spike protein is what gets inserted into a dormant virus and then into our cells via the RNA vaccine. All other non-RNA vaccines take much, much longer to develop and test.

    RNA functions in our cells as a computer's operating system's basic instructions and as the codes of computer programs "running" in our cells, all of our cells. RNA codes for the functions necessary for the survival of the human cell, such as the production of particular proteins, and is normally created from the DNA in the cell nucleus (which functions like a data vault apparently) and then travels to the cytoplasm outside the cell’s nucleus to "specify" to that more functional part of our cell what proteins to make, etc. (Once created from the DNA,t he RNA travels from the nucleus through the nuclear membrane to the part of the cell called the cytoplasm. It stays within that cytoplasm, serves as a template to make proteins (etc.) and does not travel outside the cell's outer membrane.)

    If enough of the RNA of a vaccine gets modified to deal with the variants, from the original RNA that was actually tested in 2020, I am not sure how it will interact with our existing RNA. Can they really assure us of its safety? Its efficacy/safety will become very theoretical at some point.

    In short, if anyone has political influence, given the mutability of this virus, strictly monitored quarantine procedures for all travelers and ideally, closure of most borders to humans (and even possibly, various potential animal carriers) should be temporarily implemented until the scientific studies about these issues are done. Most scientists are apparently currently operating blindly and by informed guess work as to these variants and new ones will surely be coming.

    If not, this national disaster may continue for a long time as a new, variant "surprise" comes into the country regardless of the mass vaccinations being diligently given. I sure hope that I am totally wrong.

    If lots of fully vaccinated people were to start dropping dead in late 2021, for example, the loss of faith in vaccines, etc., would be catastrophic, including by inducing new, panicked, lock downs and economic devastation thereby. (That was a cathartic experience: I shared my insomnia with you now, maybe now I can sleep and stop reading scientific articles!)

  2. Can they at least get us the relief we need now and dispute the minimum wage separately, people are struggling and been waiting awhile, this is ridiculous.

  3. How selfish is our government…..after what happened to Texas…. people are facing emergencies in their lives….

  4. Texas will use all of it for pipes… And drywall

  5. Joe Manchin is one of the most repulsive human beings I've ever seen. He lives in one of the poorest states in the union and even as the people are raising their voice, he thinks it's ok for them to continue on at minimum wage. I wish he had to live on that amount of money.

  6. 1 billion for some random gender studies in pakistan.
    1 cent for you.
    The Joe Biden effect

  7. AMERICA… WE ALL SHOULD BE GRATEFUL TO DONALD TRUMP FOR SAVING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BY STOPPING FLIGHTS COMING FROM CHINA WITH THE VIRUS WHEN THE DEMOCRATS WANTED TO CONTINUE THESE FLIGHTS COMING IN. ON TOP OF THIS, LET'S DON'T FORGET ABOUT OPERATION WARP SPEED THAT BROUGHT A COVID VACCINE IN A RECORD TIME OF LESS THAN A YEAR. ALL OF THESE 2 GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF DONALD TRUMP. NOW THAT HE IS NOT THERE, WATCH HOW ALREADY JOE BIDEN HAS NO IDEA AS OF WHAT TO DO NOR AS OF HOW TO BEAT IT. HE IS NOT BEING ABLE TO ELIMINATE IT AS HE SAID THAT HE WILL DO IT AS PRESIDENT. NOW THAT HE IS ON THE STAGE, NOTHING POSITIVIE IS HAPPENING. THIS IS WHY QUITE HONESTLY TRUMP WON IN 2016 BECAUSE AMERICA SAW AND UNDERSTOOD THAT NO LONGER THESE TYPICAL DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS CAN'T LEAD ANYTHING IN OUR COUNTRY. THEY ARE JUST NOT FIT FOR IT NOR CAN THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. GOD HELP US WITH WHAT JOE BIDEN WILL DO AND FOR WHAT IS COMING UNDER THIS DIVIDED ADMINISTRATION…

  8. "By the end of the week"… They didn't specify which week. Probably some random week 20 years from now.

  9. The government in control is succeeding in implementing the new world order. I give up. Sick of these blood and life sucking b1st1rds.

  10. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  11. China virus 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈

  12. That $15 wage. Will ruin. Our economy. Plus has nothing to do with Covid.

  13. Support Legislation in the U.S. to BAN COURT ORDERED RAPE!

  14. Tying up the 'relief package' with the minimum wage increase is fucking idiotic.

  15. Covid-19 please food 😭😭😭😭😭😭💸💸💸

  16. X the money to poorly ran democrat states! No money to the silicon valley underground train! This "covid relief" is a slap in the face to tax payers!

  17. Then get on with it lots of talk an no action same ole democrats bs

  18. Since covids happened the politics have given themselves more raises than amercians help.

  19. Now how much goes to other countries?

  20. Do not holdup the money we don't have time for all that

  21. We spend trillions on budgets for our county and millions more on international support for other countries. Meanwhile you’re telling me it’s an issue to help the American people with finances. Yeah this county is wack

  22. Time to waste more time impeaching enemies…….

  23. "This presentation focuses on the myriad ways in which the powers-that-be in the United States have been systematically dumbing down Americans as a society for a very long time – all by meticulously calculated design." https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-dumbing-down-of-america-by-design/5395928

  24. I’m so happy the non-federal Federal Reserve is printing more money out of thin air which makes the money I already have less valuable which I also have to pay interest on… so nice of them…

  25. Illegitimate President 2020

  26. It's now a year into this pandemic and we are still using masks designed for sawdust and not a 100 nm virus that only needs a few molecules to infect its victim. CDC and NIH officials have been emailed 10 months ago with a suggestion to improve half face respirators with P100 filter cartridges on both intake and exhaust valves to insure maximum protection of the wearer and the public.

  27. They said this 3 weeks ago. Just say it’s not happening smh

  28. This what I see…. The very wealthy owe that wealth to the employees and consumers in the USA, and this pandemic needs to be fixed from the damage trump did on his own… Now we can take the money straight from trump, or the very wealthy are gonna have to take responsibility to get Americans back up and running… And when everyone has a job, a house, health insurance, and a new electric car, then they can have their tax cuts … Just do it !

    Oh and the stock market has to kick in… Too.

  29. Take that $15 minimum wage off. What if they raise the price of living along with it? If that's the case I don't want it.

  30. So how much millions is China getting? 😒🤔

  31. John Chapter 12
    1 Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
    2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
    3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.
    4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,
    5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence and given to the poor?
    6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
    7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
    8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
    9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there; and they came not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
    10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
    11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
    12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
    13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
    14 And Jesus, when he had found a young donkey, sat thereon; as it is written,
    15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on a donkey’s colt.
    16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
    17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
    18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
    19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
    20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
    21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
    22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
    23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
    24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
    25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
    26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honor.
    27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
    28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
    29 The people therefore, that stood, by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him.
    30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
    31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
    32 And I, If I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
    33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
    34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
    35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you, Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
    36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spoke Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
    37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
    38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
    39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again.
    40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
    41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
    42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also so many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
    43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
    44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
    45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
    46 I am come a light in the world. That whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
    47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
    48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
    49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
    50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak thereof, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

  32. Tax money to fill foreigners pockets before your own in need America.

  33. I gave up watching ABC News bias fake news it’s just like CNN, NBC MSNBC and CBS, I get real news on Newsmax try it you’ll love it 😍

  34. That is pathetic dollar min. wage how is that gonna make economy better, businesses can't open with that min. wage! Total BS!!!! The end of February is not the end of the week, wake up learn your math!

  35. If these congressmen don’t pass this bill right away, whether they are republicans or democrats, there will be outrage. Serious repercussions not only for the american people, but also our representatives

  36. 1 billion out of 1.9 trillion to small businesses lolololololololololol

  37. The thing that people need most a living wage is what these politicians are always complaining about. They should try to live off what many Americans are busting their but to make.

  38. You know why ammunition companies produce bullets in mass quantities? So you don't miss a politician or media idiot when you start firing. You corrupt and lying people brought this on yourself, now payback is on its way.

  39. I got your relief package right here…… *unzips*

  40. Fake news fake pandemic give us back our money you parasites.

  41. No one believes your bs for a while now all the people want is for news Propaganda to just stop existing

  42. No matter what we breathe, we still are made of greed

  43. A doubling of the minimum wage will have a domino effect. Someone who can do more than make beds or mow lawns will have to have their wages increased considerably as well. Foreign nationals needing an interpreter are the ones I have heard whining for this. Starter jobs are not meant for raising a family. If you want to earn more you can get some skills and knowledge by taking community college classes. You can also learn the language that will open up more doors for you there or through apps. Not anywhere near as difficult as it was for my dad’s parents about 110 years ago. Libraries are full of books. There are online courses. Best to learn a skill that is not likely to be replaced by robots or software. I grew up working in my dad’s machine shop. Women can repair vehicles too. They can do electrical wiring, build aircraft, drive dump trucks, and lots of things men do. According to Dems there really are no female or male genders anyway. Besides them, the biggest foe of the common worker is technology. When I was young bank buildings were fairly large because of all they needed a lot of employs. Department stores had at least four times the number of people on the floor than now. With each increase in pay and benefits the state or federal laws require fewer people worked in those places and manufacturers fled. Those that were coming back because of Trump won’t do so now. Our workers will not be competitive. Those who came back are shitting bricks.
    Want to know what the politicians get out of this, besides votes from the ignorant? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. They will reap loads in tax dollars to spend. Welfare will go up because rents will go up. The owners will be paying their employees more too and everyone they hire to fix things will be charging a lot more. Inflation, inflation, inflation. Of course, the unethical Democrats and media will blame the Republicans. They are excellent at manipulating.
