S10E1365: The World Watches Biden’s Tragic Foreign Policy Disaster Unfold

It’s quite telling when even #CNN turns on #JoeBiden and calls him a foreign policy failure. All you had to do was look at his past. In the Obama admin, every general said that Joe has been on the wrong side of every single foreign policy decision for the last few DECADES. They were all right, and now we have even more proof.

S10E1364: Did Biden Create “Vaccine Hesitancy” By Pushing Back Against Donald Trump

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was grilled on whether or not President Biden encouraged vaccine hesitancy with comments he made last year cautioning he did not "trust" former President Donald Trump as his administration worked to roll out vaccines. "Has there been any thought given, looking back, to the possibility that [Biden] may have created some vaccine hesitancy? When last year, around this time, the previous administration was rushing to get a vaccine authorized, and how the president said, ‘I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don't trust Donald Trump,’" Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked Psaki during the press briefing Wednesday. "Well, I think it's safe to say he still doesn't trust Donald Trump so that hasn't changed. But he does trust scientists, he does trust data experts, And he does trust the people leading the CDC, the FDA, which is the gold standard of approval for vaccines," Psaki responded. budget says those savings will be “substantial.” Support the show: https://patreon.com/wdshow See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

S10E1362: Are COVID-19 Vaccine Passports Fair?

Given the incredible harm caused by COVID-19 over the last year or so, increasing evidence for the tremendous success of vaccines in preventing deaths and mitigating the severest effects of the disease, the safety of vaccines, and the equal opportunity to receive a vaccine (certainly in the UK), it would be very hard to argue against the vaccine passport concept from a veil of ignorance position.   Support the show: https://patreon.com/wdshow See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

S10E1361: CDC Director_ Vaccines No Longer Prevent You From Spreading COVID

Fully vaccinated people who get a COVID-19 "breakthrough" infection can spread the virus to others even if they are not symptomatic, Centers for Disease Control Director Rochelle Walensky told CNN on Thursday. She warned that an autumn/winter surge in the COVID "Delta" variant could again see hundreds of thousands of cases per day. "Our vaccines are working exceptionally well," she said. "They continue to work well with delta with regard to severe illness and death, but what they can't do anymore is prevent transmission."

S10E1359: Kamala Harris has become the most unpopular US vice president…six months in!

Alarmed Democrat strategists are grappling with the Vice President's floundering poll numbers which show she is now "underwater," meaning more Americans disapprove, than approve, of her job performance. The White House intends to deploy her only in certain areas to campaign ahead of next year's midterm Congressional elections, and will attempt to raise her profile by sending her on foreign trips in the coming months. The disappointing first months of her term have also worried long-term strategists, many of whom had hoped she would run for president as early as the next elections.

S10E1358: Why Can’t We Talk About…._ Part 2

Mexico has barred the United States from sending migrant families back across the border, using emergency measures put in place at the start of the pandemic, the Washington Examiner has learned, a development that threatens to exacerbate the border crisis. The decision to prohibit a great number of non-Mexican migrant families from returning to Mexico is expected to force Border Patrol to release more people into the U.S. because it lacks space at existing facilities to hold the thousands coming into custody daily.
