Federal Judge Strikes Down Federal School Mask and Vaccine Mandate –Ruling permanently enjoins vaccine, mask mandates in 24 states | 21 Sept 2022 | Today, a federal judge in Louisiana ruled that the federal government cannot require Head Start program teachers, staff and volunteers be vaccinated against COVID-19, nor can they require that adults and students wear masks.

In the ruling permanently enjoining the vaccine and mask mandate in 24 states, U.S. District Court Judge Terry A. Doughty writes: “The public interest is served by maintaining the constitutional structure and maintaining the liberty of individuals who do not want to take the COVID-19 vaccine. This interest outweighs Agency Defendants’ interests…” Brick v. Biden was filed Dec. 22, 2021, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Lake Charles Division.

Researchers said that the phenomenon of rechallenge–when adverse events reoccur or worsen following additional vaccine doses–proved that some of the events were caused by the vaccine… Rechallenge changes a causal link “from possible to definitive,” Dr. Mati Berkovitch, head of the research team and a pediatric specialist, said at the meeting.
Here We Go: Ebola Outbreak in Uganda Has Doctors Scrambling | 23 Sept 2022 | An outbreak of Ebola is being reported in Uganda where doctors are scrambling to contain it. There are reports out of Africa of an outbreak of some form of ebola that doctors are trying to address: “Ebola has spread almost 50 miles through rural communities in Uganda — with cases clustered near a busy road leading from the capital Kampala to the Democratic Republic of Congo, health officials revealed on Thursday. Doctors are scrambling to mount a response to a relatively rare form of the highly contagious deadly hemorrhagic fever, which leaves people vomiting blood and has no approved vaccine.” This news out of Africa comes as the COVID crisis was proclaimed “over” by Joe Biden, which was quickly rebutted by others in the government. Also, the 2022 mid-terms are coming up. COVID was used as a reason for unconstitutional actions before the 2020 election, such as the installation of illegal drop boxes across the country. Will this happen again?

Moscow clarifies Putin’s nuclear warning | 23 Sept 2022 | Moscow is not making nuclear threats against anyone, but urges the West to refrain from interfering in Russia’s military offensive in Ukraine, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Friday. In a video address at a conference marking the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Ryabkov said Moscow had noticed “Washington’s painful reaction” to Russia placing its nuclear arsenal on high combat alert in February. “We explain that we do not threaten anyone with nuclear weapons,” Ryabkov said, referring to Russia’s military doctrine, which provides for the use of the nuclear arsenal in self-defense when there is an existential threat to the state. At the same time, Ryabkov said, Russia was warning the West that there are “risks” to its interference in Ukraine and it “strongly urges” the US “to avoid a situation that could lead to a direct military clash with Russia.”
