American Airlines Turns Plane Around, Kicks Two-Year-Old Off Flight For Not Wearing Mask During Asthma Attack

https://nationalfile.com/ameri...uring-asthma-attack/

American Airlines turned around a flight and kicked off a two-year-old asthmatic boy and his mother and grandmother, because the child could not wear a face mask properly when he had an asthma attack.
Amanda Pendarvis, her two-year-old son Waylon, and her mother, were allegedly kicked off AA Flight 1284 on Monday, because Waylon, who has asthma, was having an attack and could not maintain the mask on his face properly as a result. Pendarvis described it on Instagram as the “most humiliating/traumatizing experience,” because of the actions of the flight attendant, who she named as Carl and described as “truly evil [and] power tripping.”

In upsetting footage posted to Instagram by Pendarvis, her son can be seen crying and not wanting to wear the mask due to his inability to breathe. Despite allegedly showing the American Airlines attendant his negative COVID test, and informing him that he has asthma, the flight attendant “did not care” that Waylon was “literally hyperventilating.” As a result, the plane was turned around and the family were escorted off by police officers. “I was not refusing a mask, nor did I even say I wouldn’t try to keep a mask on my son,” Pendarvis confirmed.

Despite the flight attendant announcing the incident to the whole plane, describing her son as a “non-compliant traveler,” the majority of passengers did not speak up about what was happening, she added. “There was one man behind us who was standing up to [the flight attendant] telling him how [insane and irrational] he was being,” Pendarvis wrote, adding that several other passengers mouthed “I am sorry.” (READ MORE: American Airlines Promises ‘Investigation’ After Flight Attendant Bullies Elderly Woman To Tears For Briefly Lowering Mask)

The story gained greater attention when Twitter user Tiger Lily tweeted screenshots of what Pendarvis posted on Instagram. “The only thing that covid has done to society is remove people of their compassion,” she wrote. “Hospitals making mothers give birth alone, children being taken, babies being kicked off flights, families turning against each other. I won’t make nice with these people. Not anymore.” Responses to the tweet were mostly of shock and anger, including many calls for Pendarvis to sue American Airlines.

I hope that she wins enough to buy her own airplane. Or be able to charter private jets for life.

I’ll not write what I hope for Carl.

That kind of absolute irrational, authoritarian cruelty is why I made sure that when my wife and daughters fly back to France in December that they are on an Air France operated flight and not a Delta flight. Why? Because my youngest is now 2 years old and Air France (and France as a country) does not require children under 11 years old to muzzle their faces with filthy rags for hours on end.

Making a two year old wear a mask and thinking it is a totally reasonable thing to do is about the most insane and cruel thing I have witnessed these past two years. It's also the most infuriating.

If that kid was having an asthma attack, he should not have been on the plane. An asthma attack can be an medical emergency.

Shocking Report: Covid Spike in Ultra-Triple-Vaxxed Israel Is WHY Dear Leader Biden Enacted Medical Dictatorship

The data should be a crystal clear warning about the so-called vaccines. Instead, the evil leaders in our government are using it as the reason to double- and triple-down.

The world is backwards right now, especially when it comes to anything coming out of the White House. The vaccine mandates imposed last week, mandates that are being expanded upon this week, came about at a peculiar time. Based on literally every bit of data coming out of Israel, the most triple-vaxxed nation in the world that relies almost solely on the FDA-Sort-Of-Approved Pfizer jabs, we should be slamming on the brakes.

Instead, the Biden-Harris regime is doubling down.

A shocking report details how the waning effectiveness of the Covid-19 jabs is the reason the White House rushed through booster shots and rolled out the mandates when they did. Instead of doing the scientifically sound move of halting the vaccine push until they can determine why the drugs are failing so miserably, they are doing the politically expedient and eyebrow-raising opposite.

According to POLITICO, the White House has seen the data, which is currently unpublished, and determined that they needed to start forcing as many people as possible to get on the vaccine regimen before it is revealed that this is likely leading us to ceaseless boosters. Those who get on the jab program will be on the jab program for the rest of their lives with a likelihood of shorter and shorter intervals between treatments as the coronavirus mutates.

POLITICO frames it as if this is all about rolling out the boosters, ignoring the conspicuous timing of the vaccine mandates revealed last week. But it’s clear the sudden rush to force vaccines now was to get ahead of the news from Israel that shows they’re simply not working.

As with most articles about vaccines written by left-leaning outlets, POLITICO’s report fails to reveal the big picture. Even as they highlight the clearly duplicitous nature of the vaccine mandates, they continue to cheer them on. This is becoming more and more common to the point that nearly every story that is reluctantly reported about adverse reactions is tainted by editorializing that claims the drugs are still “safe and effective.”

It’s pure cognitive dissonance mixed with gaslighting. Keep that in mind as you read this snippet with emphasis added:

The Biden administration’s push to roll out coronavirus vaccine booster shots this month has largely been shaped by unpublished data from Israel’s vaccination campaign, according to two individuals familiar with the matter.

The Israel data, which is set to be made public as soon as this week, shows that the Pfizer vaccine’s ability to prevent severe disease and hospitalization is waning over time — as is the shot’s protection against mild and moderate disease, the two sources said. The country began administering boosters to people over 60 in July and has now expanded it to people over 30, but it has released relatively little information so far about the effect of the booster campaign.

The Biden administration has long relied on data from Israel, which has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, to inform its Covid-19 response. Top officials from the White House, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration have analyzed the latest Israeli data for weeks, concluding that the U.S. should begin administering boosters this fall, another senior administration official said.

Although the CDC has published a series of targeted studies that suggest Covid-19 vaccines’ effectiveness against infection is decreasing, particularly in the elderly, the Israeli data is more comprehensive and more alarming, three sources who have reviewed the data told POLITICO on Monday.

The administration’s focus on Israel’s data underscores the extent to which the U.S. is leaning on other countries’ experiences to forecast the next phase of the pandemic here. That is partly because the highly contagious Delta variant swept through other parts of the world first, and partly because of better data tracking in countries like Israel that have national health care systems. The U.S. continues to struggle to collect and analyze reliable Covid-19 data because the federal government has long neglected the country’s public health infrastructure.

Senior administration officials working on the federal government’s response to the pandemic have for weeks debated whether to recommend booster shots for Americans. The White House and top health officials said in mid-August that they planned to roll out the shots for most adults beginning on Sept. 20. The move has sparked tensions between Biden’s top aides, the CDC and the FDA, amid questions about whether domestic data supported the goal. Two senior FDA vaccine scientists who are leaving the agency co-authored an analysis published Monday in the Lancet that found no evidence to support giving booster shots to the general population.

The FDA is examining the Israeli data as it reviews applications from vaccine makers to offer booster shots, three other senior administration officials said. One official stressed that no matter what the domestic or international vaccine data says, the final decision on whether to recommend boosters lies with the FDA. The agency’s vaccine advisory committee is scheduled to meet Friday to discuss Pfizer’s application for approval of its booster shot.

Asked about the extent to which the Israeli data showed vaccine efficacy waning, Biden’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, said it was “enough that you would be impressed.”

“I would be very surprised if the U.S. data don’t turn out to be ultimately very similar to the Israeli data,” Fauci told POLITICO.

Therein lies the thinking of the White House, especially people like Anthony Fauci. As Israel is in the middle of its biggest spike in Covid-19 cases since the pandemic began, Fauci sees it as impressive. This is absolutely backwards prima facie, but somehow a strong delusion has entranced the White House and much of the nation.

The effects of confirmation bias cannot be ignored. Those who have pushed the vaccines as well as those who have been vaccinated have a natural tendency to see the rosy side of bad vaccine news. Nobody wants to feel like they were conned because nobody wants to think they’re stupid for getting injected with a drug whose efficacy has been questionable from the start to protect themselves from a disease with a 99.93% recovery rate for people under 40.

Even Israel’s government, which is responsible for making themselves the most triple-vaxxed nation in the world, is looking at the data and admitting they’re disappointed. According to Times of Israel:

Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash said Tuesday that the current wave of coronavirus infections is surpassing anything seen in previous outbreaks and that he is disappointed that a recent downward trend appeared to be reversing.

Ash’s remarks via video call to the Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee came as Health Ministry figures showed that over 10,000 new COVID-19 cases were diagnosed the day before and that the positive test rate was climbing.

Pointing out that there is an average of 8,000 new infections each day, with occasional peaks over 10,000, he said, “That is a record that did not exist in the previous waves,” including the massive third wave at the end of last year.

Ash expressed some pessimism, though he observed that, belying fears, there wasn’t a large spike in infections following last week’s Rosh Hashanah holiday — the Jewish New Year — or the opening of the school year at the beginning of the month.

After bringing daily infections down to little more than a dozen a day in June, Israel has been battling to control a resurgence of COVID-19 in what has been its fourth wave of infections since the start of the global pandemic.

The bad news keeps rolling in for the incessant vaccine regimen. Instead of doing what science should dictate, the White House sees it as reason to push vaccines harder. What does that tell you about their motives?

What is the situation if you are vaxxed and have a family member contract the virus. Does tha vaxxed family member need to quarantine per the cdc. We have a situation locally and the employer say's no.
That is not how I believe it works. The vaxxed can transmit it correct, if under the same roof.

The vaccinated person would need to get tested in 3-5 days, wear a mask indoors for 14 days and monitor symptoms.

Massachusetts Activates National Guard To Bus School Children After Vax Mandate Staffing Shortages

https://www.zerohedge.com/covi...vax-mandate-staffing

Amid fresh national, state and local vaccine mandates being driven forward by the Biden administration, schools and public services have clearly been most immediately hit by personnel shortages as a large chunk of the population remains 'vaccine hesitant' - or refuses to be forced into a mandated Covid vaccine, or perhaps are also already immune through a prior infection. Other staff are said to fear catching coronavirus from the largely unvaccinated student population.

States like Massachusetts are now struggling with public school staffing shortages to the point that children literally can no longer take the bus to school as there aren't enough drivers. The large school district of Boston, for example, admitted at the start of the school year that the vaccine requirement would inevitably result in drivers staying home. "City leaders say part of the reason for the shortage in Boston is that some drivers are not vaccinated, which is a requirement," a local report underscored.

Now the state is having to take drastic action and even greater intervention in the crisis, with Republican Governor Charlie Baker on Monday activating the Massachusetts National Guard in order to get school transportation up and running.

An official statement from Gov. Baker's office said "The Governor’s order makes up to 250 personnel available. Beginning with training on Tuesday, 90 Guard members will prepare for service in Chelsea, Lawrence, Lowell, and Lynn."

And further it said "These Guard personnel will be available to serve as drivers of school transport vans known as 7D vehicles to address staffing shortages in certain districts." The 7D vehicles have been described as smaller than regular yellow school buses.

Baker sought to assure communities that "The Guard has a proven track record of success supporting civilian authorities. Their frequent side-by-side training with state and local first responders makes them well-suited for a variety of missions."

Of course, the obvious question is whether uniformed national guardsmen might have bigger duties to be prepared for, such as defending the country and responding to state and national emergencies. The governor sought to address this, saying "The mission will not interfere with the Massachusetts National Guard’s ability to respond to and assist in emergencies within the Commonwealth."

According to Axios, many school districts across the country are experiencing such transportation staffing shortages as vaccine mandates went into effect: "Schools across the country are experiencing a shortage of bus drivers, which has worsened during the coronavirus pandemic." Axios highlighted further that "More than 80% of school districts reported having issued finding an adequate number of drivers."

What's the mortality rate with that treatment? From what I've read, most people are coming off the ventilator and into a rubber bag.

"Life Has Not Improved By As Much As We Hoped" - Singapore Outbreak Worsens With 80% Vaccinated

https://www.zerohedge.com/covi...orsens-80-vaccinated

Singapore has just reached a level of vaccination penetration that many other developed economies would envy: 80% of its adult population has been vaccinated. And yet, it continues to struggle with one of the worst outbreaks yet. On Sunday, the nation of 5.7 million people reported 555 new local COVID-19 cases, the most since August 2020. One day prior, Singapore recorded its 58th COVID death, a partially vaccinated 80-year-old man with a history of diabetes, hypertension and heart problems.

Rather than lowering restrictions, Singapore's Ministry of Health last week banned social gatherings at workplaces, allegedly because clusters of workers gossiping around the water cooler led to an outbreak. And in their free time, Singaporeans have been asked to attend one social gathering per day, tops.

Despite Singapore being one of the world's most heavily vaxxed countries, not much about life has changed for the worst of the COVID pandemic. Alex Cook, an infectious diseases modelling expert at the National University of Singapore, acknowledged that life had not improved "by as much as we might have hoped," despite Singapore being one of the world's most vaccinated countries.

A curious thing has happened since Singapore hit 80%, Cook reminds us: "The community cases have actually gone up since reaching 80 per cent coverage, in part because we're allowing more social events for those who are vaccinated and, I dare say, more fatigue at the control measures," Cook told the ABC.

And the outlook isn't exactly positive: Gan Kim Yong, co-chair of the multi-ministry task force, said the "worrying" spike in infections would "probably get to 2,000 new cases a day," describing the next two to four weeks as "crucial."

It's a lesson that's not unique to Singapore; "One main lesson from across South-East Asia is that it is incredibly hard to prevent Delta's spread and, as Singapore shows, even high vaccination rates will not help that much," Cook added.

While they're mostly symptomatic, Singapore is still finding a lot of breakthrough infections among the vaccinated. At this point, it's only the latest piece of evidence to suggest that even the revised official efficacy rate of the Pfizer jab just isn't realistic when we look at the case numbers.

Another scientist said the continued spread is merely a sign that 80% vaccinated is still "too low for delta". Leong Hoe Nam, an infectious diseases expert from Singapore's Rophi Clinic, said the Delta strain had moved the goalposts, in terms of what level of community vaccination was necessary.

But looking at recent waves of COVID infections in the US, Europe and in Asia, it's starting to look like that virus simply adapts so quickly, vaccines just aren't effective enough. Maybe natural immunity is the better rout after all.

People, mostly vaccinated that are scared to catch COVID are causing this hysteria. If you are relatively healthy and have had COVID or had the jab the chances of you dying are almost zero. Could you get sick, sure. Since when has the threat of getting sick caused this much chaos. It’s lunacy.

It's about 50%. Like I said, it is the last resort when everything else has failed.

I was listening to CNN on the way in to work this morning. They had the HHS Sec. on and asked him about this natural immunity exemption for healthcare workers. He said they were skirting the rules. Asshole

Spectrum Health giving employees waivers to vaccination requirement with proof of natural immunity

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Spectrum Health will allow employees to be exempt from its vaccination mandate if natural immunity to COVID-19 can be proven.

The medical organization tells FOX 17 the decision came after a recommendation by its medical exemption committee.

To prove natural immunity, an employee must have a positive PCR or antigen test for COVID-19 from a lab certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988, plus a positive anitbody test. Both results must be from within the past 3 months.

IDK. But... the American Red Cross used to do antibody tests and provide the results to blood donors. I don't know if they still do antibody tests, but they no longer make the results available to blood donors.

Why not? I can only assume that they were leaned on by big .gov and big pharma and the vax pushers. People were saying: "I've got the antibodies, I don't need the vax". So they stopped providing the information.
