Masking the truths

Masking the truths

Making Sense by Michael Reagan

A friend of mine from back east once told me what he said was wrong with the country.

“Readers are leaders,” he said. “Unfortunately, our leaders don’t read.”

I was reminded of that sharp-eyed observation this week after a federal judge in Florida struck down the CDC’s widely hated mask mandate for travelers.

The reaction to the mandate reversal by the pro-mask zealots and their allies in the liberal national media was hysterical, angry and predictable.

You can bet the mask worshipers are rooting for the Department of Justice’s to successfully appeal the judge’s ruling and reinstate the CDC’s rule.

Women Of The Senate Urge Biden To Hold Taliban Accountable On Women’s Rights

Politicians of different political parties rarely come together on anything, but the women of the Senate have found the one thing that they are in complete agreement on.

All 24 female senators recently came together to urge President Joe Biden and his administration to form a plan to ensure the human rights of women and girls in Afghanistan.

As the disastrous withdrawal of American troops took place in Afghanistan, the crackdown on the rights of women and girls was already beginning.

"Some 79 female judges, journalists and human rights activists have been evacuated from Afghanistan to Greece after fearing for their lives while stranded in the Taliban-seized country."#AfghanWomen

Help save a piece of Knoxville history

Are you kin to someone named Kidd, Gallaher, Griffin, Broome or Cavett? How about Lonas (spelled Lones, back in the day), Roberts, Parham, Keith, Vanosdale, Wittenbarger, Covington or Walker? And even if you’re not, if you’re interested in our history, you need to know about the work that has commenced to preserve the Mars Hill Cemetery.

There are only about 50 old headstones in the cemetery off Broome Road in West Knoxville, but ground-penetrating radar has identified around 500 graves. Archeologists call them “anomalies,” but to many, they are the remains of their ancestors.

Biden-Harris management agenda includes focus on design of digital services

Improving the design of digital services and the customer experience management of high-impact government service providers are among the top priorities in the Biden-Harris administration’s president’s management agenda published Thursday.

The administration in its statement of priorities said service delivery from federal service providers has “not kept pace with the needs and expectations of those it serves” and that it will work to address such shortcomings head-on.

“This includes building on progress among Federal High Impact Service Providers—those services that serve the largest percentage of people, conduct the greatest volume of transactions annually, and have an outsized impact on the lives of the individuals they serve,” the document said. “Focusing on these high-impact services will yield capabilities, tools, and practices that will cascade to other Federal programs and services as well, improving our delivery Government-wide.”

File: SARS operatives

The past few days have not been the best for the Nigerian Police Force. The widespread protests over the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) began as the massive young population became tired of SARS’ operations. They are demanding reforms of the police squad, which has been characterized by immense brutality, assault, illegal arrest, extortion, and the killing of peaceful protesters. Despite forcing the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to disband the unit, they are not satisfied as they want total police reforms and the officers in the squad department to face justice.

Columbus didn’t represent Italy, and he Killed and Enslaved Americans, and we Don’t need his Statues

Chicago (Special to Informed Comment) – Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot ordered the removal of two statues of Christopher Columbus after police and protesters clashed last week. The confrontation at the navigator’s monument in Grant Park resulted in injuries to both officers and demonstrators. According to NBC News, Chicago Police Department officials confirmed that the gathering was peaceful until a small group began throwing objects. Carting away the Grant Park Columbus came after some protesters had earlier tried to pull it down. The second one stood in Arrigo Park, in the city’s Little Italy neighborhood.

Lightfoot’s move has sparked much local and national criticism.

Don’t threaten people into SOP compliance

PETALING JAYA, July 25: The head of a think tank has questioned the wisdom of using the threat of harsh punishment to ensure compliance with SOPs set by the government in its fight against Covid-19.

Azrul Mohd Khalib, CEO of the Galen Centre for Health and Social Policy, asked whether the government could provide proof that long jail sentences or stiff fines would improve compliance.

“While it is tempting to use instruments of state such as fines and imprisonment to enforce measures such as home quarantines or compliance with SOPs, there is a problem with trying to strike fear or intimidate people into compliance,” he told FMT.

The use of fear could bring about discrimination and the blaming of victims, he said.

He also said the most likely to suffer strict punishments would be the poor.
