New CDC director takes over beleaguered agency amid crisis As the coronavirus swept across the globe last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sank into the shadows, undermined by some of its own mistakes and stifled by an administration bent on downplaying the nation’s suffering. Now a new CDC director is arriving to a mammoth task: reasserting the agency while the pandemic is in its deadliest phase yet and the nation’s largest-ever vaccination campaign is wracked by confusion and delays. “I don’t know if the CDC is broken or just temporarily injured,” but something must be done to bring it back to health, said Timothy Westmoreland, a Georgetown University law professor focused on public health. The task falls to Dr. Rochelle Walensky, 51, an infectious-diseases specialist at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, who is expected to become CDC director this week—a time when the virus’s U.S. death toll has eclipsed 400,000 and continues to accelerate. While the agency has retained some of its top scientific talent, public health experts say, it has a long list of needs, including new protection from political influence, a comprehensive review of its missteps during the pandemic and more money to beef up basic functions like disease tracking and genetic analysis.
Yellen Urges Congress To ‘Act Big’ To Prop Up Pandemic-Scarred Economy Janet Yellen, President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Treasury Department, made the case for aggressive economic relief, urging lawmakers to “act big” to fight the financial fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. At her confirmation hearing Tuesday before the Senate Finance Committee, Yellen pressed lawmakers to pass the $1.9 trillion spending package that the incoming administration has proposed to keep families and businesses afloat as well as to accelerate vaccinations against COVID-19. “Without further action, we risk a longer, more painful recession now and longer-term scarring of the economy later,” Yellen said. “In the long run, I believe the benefits will far outweigh the costs.” Yellen, a labor economist who chaired the Federal Reserve from 2014 to 2018, would be the first woman to lead the Treasury Department. Her nomination has the backing of all the living former Treasury secretaries, both Democrats and Republicans. Democrats argue that the government was too quick to withdraw support for the economy during the global financial crisis, saying it contributed to a slow recovery. But committee Republicans expressed doubts about some parts of the Biden proposal, which includes a $15 minimum wage and substantial aid to state and local governments.

Comments of The Day!
A few years ago, my Grandmother had an itch that would not go away. We tried every lotion or potion that we could get our hands on. Nothing worked Everyone that touched her also developed the itch. Eventually, she was diagnosed as having a parasite infection, some sort of mite. Her doctor prescribed a horrible insecticide. It worked for her and several family members. I could not bring myself to take an insecticide. Fortunately, one of my cousins stumbled upon an apple cider vinegar and epson salt bath treatment that also worked.

Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Donald Trump Leaves Washington, DC: ‘Goodbye. I Love You. We’ll Be Back in Some Form’ President Donald Trump bid farewell to staff and supporters Wednesday, leaving Washington, DC, for the last time as president aboard Air Force One. “Goodbye. I love you. We’ll be back in some form,” Trump said as he concluded his remarks, noting “I will be watching. I will be listening” as a new administration took office. The crowd of roughly 500 people shouted “U.S.A” and “We Love You” and “Thank you Trump” after the president took the stage and spoke. He also received a 21 gun salute from the military. “You are amazing people. This is a great, great country. This is my greatest honor and privilege to be your president,” Trump said. The president predicted success for president-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris (without naming them) noting the strength of the country he was leaving behind. “I wish the new administration great love and great success. I think they’ll have great success. They have the foundation to something really spectacular,” he said, adding, “Remember us when you see these things happening.”
Trump looks to form new ‘Patriot Party’: report What does Donald Trump plan to do after leaving office today? The Wall Street Journal says Trump, who departed the White House for the last time Wednesday morning, is considering forming his own political party — and he’s already chose a name: “The Patriot Party.” The Journal reports the potential for the new party comes as Trump feels Republicans abandoned him after the assault by his supporters on the U.S. Capitol, and that Trump is particularly angry at the 10 GOP members of the House to cross party lines and vote in favor of impeachment. Either way, Trump promised in his final speech as president at Joint Base Andrews: “We will be back in some form.” U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Dearborn, was asked what she thinks of Trump’s parting words. “I think it’s America, and we have free speech, and he can do what he wants,” Dingell said, speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950. “We’ve had third parties with well-known figures before that have not been successful.” However, she hinted there’s reason to believe a new Trump party has a shot at success.
BREAKING: Investigators Release Huge Bombshell That Could Change The Entire Narrative About January 6th In what should be front page news, federal law enforcement officials have told CNN that they believe the January 6th storming of the Capitol was planned ahead of time by bad actors instead of a random riot inspired by President Trump’s speech. Those of us on the right have known all along that Trump had nothing to do with the riot, but it appears law enforcement is beginning to come around as well. If they prove that this was a pre-planned event by radicals who just wanted to see destruction, it will be the biggest news story of the year after the media viciously slandered Trump for “inciting” the scattered violence that occurred. The entire impeachment witch hunt and de-platforming of the President is based on the lie that Trump “incited an angry mob”. As the investigators are beginning to learn, that was not the case at all.
The Left And Deep State Eager To Turn ‘War On Terror’ Tools On The American People On Monday, The Daily Beast’s Jeff Stein asked “Can U.S. Spy Agencies Stop White Terror?” where he explored whether a government apparatus should be established for use against domestic terrorism. Calls of this nature – to essentially conduct a ‘War on Terror,’ only this time targeting American citizens supposedly suspected of ‘extremist’ activity – have radically increased since the violent protests at the U.S. Capitol. Stein explores different scenarios and speaks with different experts about the possibility of constructing extra-constitutional departments and expanding the intelligence community’s domestic spy capabilities.

Former intelligence official argues for a ‘9/11 Commission’ for domestic extremism On PBS NewsHour Monday night, former intelligence official Sue Gordon said that the US should consider a “9/11 Commission” for domestic extremism and consider applying some of the lessons from the fight against Al Qaeda abroad against US citizens. In discussing the response to the riot at the US Capitol on Jan 6., PBS anchor Nick Schifrin interviewed former intelligence official Sue Gordon who previously served in the CIA and various other government intelligence agencies. Schifrin asked Gordon if the US had done a good job when it came to domestic extremists, and if there needed to be some kind of structural reform in order to deal with this kind of threat. Gordon answered, “Yes, I think you almost need a 9/11 Commission kind of activity. It’s got to be a combination of FBI. It has to include DHS. And you have got to find a way to bring intelligence or the craft of intelligence into it.” Gordon then went on to compare the investigation of the riot to hunting Islamic extremists and suggested methods that were used to combat terrorism abroad be used on US soil.
