CDC Chief Confirms Justice Sotomayor Greatly Exaggerated Pediatric COVID Hospitalization Numbers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Sunday set the record straight against Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s false statement that 100,000 children are hospitalized in serious condition and “many” on ventilators, due to COVID-19.

“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in…in serious condition and many on ventilators” Justice Sotomayor said Friday. Walensky appeared on “Fox News Sunday” where host Bret Baier asked her directly about the Justices comment, and asking her to clarify that numbers show there are fewer than 3,500 children currently being treated with COVID-19.
“Yeah” said Walensky. She quickly moved on to advocate for vaccination saying “but, you know, here’s what I can tell you about our pediatric hospitalizations now. First of all, the vast majority of children who are in the hospital are unvaccinated, and for those children who are not eligible for vaccination, we do know they are most likely to get sick with COVID if their family members aren’t vaccinated.”

Walensky’s statements closely follow the Biden administration’s rhetoric that it is the unvaccinated – of any age – that is “fueling” the pandemic. Baier asked Walensky if she felt responsibility to set the record straight on the exaggerated COVID-19 numbers being spread throughout the Biden administration, liberal media, and now a Supreme Court Justice.
Vehemently staying on message, Walensky responded, “Yeah, here’s what I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you that, right now, 17 — if you’re unvaccinated, you’re 17 times more likely to be in the hospital and 20 times more likely to die than if you’re boosted.”

“And so, what my responsibility is, is to provide guidance and recommendations to protect the American people. Those recommendations strongly recommend vaccination for our children above the age of 5 and boosting for everyone above the age of 18 if they’re eligible” she concluded.

The Biden administration has done everything in its power to take focus off of the deadly botched withdrawal from Afghanistan which left the Taliban terror group to retake control. New information is surfacing on just howmuch control the Taliban has been able to hold over Biden and his administration.

Just in December, the Taliban reportedly “told the United States during talks in Doha that if the U.S. insisted on deploying 2,000 American troops at its embassy in Kabul, the Taliban would also deploy as part of any bilateral arrangement 2,000 ‘fidayeen mujahideen [i.e., suicide bombers]’ at the Afghan Embassy in Washington D.C.” reports the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a watchdog group that tracks jihadi communications and media reports.
The Taliban is making it very clear it does not want any American presence in Afghanistan. Additionally the Taliban made it very clear suicide bombers will be part of their special forces in the Afghan National Army under the defense ministry.

MEMRI also reported that in July of 2021, Mujahid said in an interview with ToloNews that the Taliban has no obligation under the Doha agreement of 2020 to sever ties with Al-Qaeda because the groups is part of the Islamic faith.

Advisers Urge Biden To Change COVID-19 Strategy

Six public health advisers who advised President Biden during his presidential transition published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one aimed at learning how to live with the virus.

“The authors are all big names in American medicine; several, including Dr. Luciana Borio, a former acting chief scientist at the Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. David Michaels, a former head of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, have held high-ranking government positions,” The New York Times reported. “The driving force behind the articles is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, an oncologist, medical ethicist and University of Pennsylvania professor who advised former President Barack Obama.”
“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” the outlet added.

TRENDING‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Flies the Friendly Skies: Southwest Pilot Signs off to Passengers with Phrase
The call for a new strategy comes after the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases despite Biden’s promise to “shut down the virus” during his 2020 presidential campaign.
“To be better prepared for inevitable outbreaks, they suggest that the administration lay out goals and specific benchmarks, including what number of hospitalizations and deaths from respiratory viruses, including the coronavirus, that should trigger emergency measures,” The New York Times added. “The authors say the administration needs to acknowledge that Omicron may not mark the end of the pandemic — and to plan for a future that they concede is unknowable. They also make clear that the current rate of Covid hospitalizations and deaths is unacceptably high.”

Trump Appointed Judge Demand FDA Release Vaccine Info This Year

On Friday, Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA), Ranking Member of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis wrote a letter to President Joe Biden about the problematic issues resulting from Teachers Unions hijacking in-person learning and shutting down schools.

Scalise began the letter reminding the President that “On January 21, 2021, you issued Executive Order 14000 stating, ‘it is the policy of [my] Administration to provide support…for safe, in-person learning as quickly as possible.’
Then again, “On January 4, 2022, you stated, ‘[w]e know that our kids can be safe when in school…That’s why I believe schools should remain open. They have what they need.”
“On January 5, 2022, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doubled down on your Administration’s commitment to maintain in-person learning stating, ‘we want schools to be open, the President wants them to be open and we’re going to continue to use every resource and work to ensure that’s the case.”

TRENDING2 Killed, 10 Injured by Taliban Gunmen at Afghanistan Wedding to Stop Music
Despite Biden and his press secretary’s seeming commitment to the safety and educational wellbeing of children, Scalise notes the President is being stomped on by Teachers Unions. “Unfortunately, many Teachers Unions across the country disagree with you and are actively undermining in-person education. It is unclear if you are willing to stand by your statements, stand up to the Unions, and advocate for America’s children. We insist you do so.”

Scalise writes, “Teachers Unions have repeatedly jeopardized America’s children’s education and livelihoods throughout this pandemic. Even as teachers were prioritized for vaccines, many refused to return to in-person instruction. Even worse, classes for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) were abruptly cancelled on Wednesday January 5, 2022 after the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) voted to cancel in-person learning and refused to show up to work, despite no scientific basis for their decision.”
The letter continues with more proof:
Dr. Leana Wen, a professor of public health at George Washington University, said, ‘schools remain one of the safest places for children from a #covid19 transmission standpoint.’ Vaccines are widely available for anyone over five years of age who wants one and $190 billion was allocated to reopen schools safely. There is absolutely no reason for students to be forced to learn virtually.
Student learning loss due to remote or hybrid learning is astronomical—failing grades are rising and child suicide rates are surging. Among third through eighth graders, math and reading levels were all lower than normal this fall. The gaps were largest for Black and Hispanic students, and schools with high poverty rates. Children and teenagers are experiencing a mental health crisis of historic proportions—in fact, your own Surgeon General agrees and the American Academy of Pediatrics declared a national state of emergency in children’s mental health. Suicide attempts have risen sharply for adolescents with suicide attempts by 12 to 17 year old girls rising 51 percent from early 2019 to early 2021.These unnecessary disruptions from the CTU pose additional risks to children’s mental health, learning, and social relationships.
We agree that schools should remain open and with Press Secretary Psaki’s statement that we should “ensure that children are not enduring the mental health impact of not being in school, that there are not gaps in learning. This includes schools everywhere, including in Chicago.”
Talk is cheap unless it is backed up with strong, decisive action. It is imperative that you do everything in your power to ensure students are learning in-person so they can begin to make up all that they have lost throughout this pandemic. We stand ready to assist the Administration in any way we can to ensure our students can learn in-person.

The producer is 44-year-old John Griffin, who allegedly attempted to “entice parents of underage girls to hand over their daughters for sexual training hosted by himself” reports The Federalist.
Griffin has worked for CNN the past nine years has allegedly used social media online messaging platforms such as Kik and Google Hangouts to lure parents and their underage daughters to his house in order to teach them sexually.
Griffin’s LinkedIn page stated his position as “LEAD ANCHOR’S SENIOR PRODUCER, CNN ‘NEW DAY.’ Works shoulder-to-shoulder with lead anchor Chris Cuomo, seeing him through each show and producing live breaking news across the country and around the world.”

If convicted, Griffin could face life in prison, as well as “the federal government intends to seek the forfeiture of Griffin’s Ludlow house, his Tesla, a Mercedes, and other property that was used in the commission of the charged offenses.”

The Federalist reports on the case details:
According to the U.S. Department of Justice’s official press release, Griffin allegedly said a “woman is a woman regardless of her age,” and boasted that he could teach girls how to become sexually submissive.

“The mother and child flew to Boston in July of 2020, where Griffin picked them up in his Tesla and drove them to his Ludlow house. At the house, the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity,” the press release stated.Griffin allegedly made a similar offer to the mother of a 16-year-old girl that same month.
