Republican idiot Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) suggested in a recent interview that Covid vaccines “may” give people AIDS. Johnson sat down with Todd Callender, whom the Wisconsin Examiner described as an “anti-vaccine attorney”.
Callender shared a wild theory with the senator: Covid shots are intentionally spreading HIV/AIDS to people who receive them. Callendar called the actions of the FDA “criminal,” and suggested action be taken against public health authorities. Johnson replied, “You’ve gotta do one step at a time, everything you say may be true, but right now the public [wrongly] views the vaccines as largely safe and effective, that vaccine injuries are rare and mild.”
This is not the first time Johnson, who is up for re-election this fall, has spread conspiracy theories about COVID-19 or connected the pandemic to AIDS. In December, on world AIDS day, Johnson said in an appearance on Fox News Host Brian Kilmeade’s radio show that Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “overhyped” the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
Congrats Ron for winning Most Hated Republican of the Day, surprisingly taking it from Samuel Alito.
“United, American, Delta and Southwest Airlines all announced that mask requirements would be suspended in the U.S., and on select international flights, effective immediately. JetBlue Airways said Monday evening that masks would be optional in the U.S. Face masks are also now optional onboard all Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. Uber announced Tuesday that riders and drivers are not required to wear masks, though it stressed that the CDC still recommends them for people with certain risk factors or those living in areas with high transmission levels.“
Oh yeah. This is gonna end well. -smh-
Will you continue to wear your mask?
Sound off in the comments below.
The federal judge who struck down the CDC's mask mandate for travelers was a lame duck Trump appointee who was rated "not qualified" by the American Bar Association for "the short time she has actually practiced law and her lack of meaningful trial experience."
Earlier this week we reported on Scott Quiner 55, of Buffalo, who was flown from the Twin Cities to Texas over the weekend, after Mercy Hospital said it would disconnect the ventilator Quiner, who was unvaccinated, had been in the hospital’s ICU since Nov. 6 with critically low oxygen levels and had shown little signs of improvement since his arrival. Quiner’s wife, court seeking an emergency restraining order to prevent Mercy from disconnecting the ventilator. The judge issued a restraining order Jan. 13 and Quinner was moved to Texas where his wife could keep giving him futile care while taking up an ICU bed in a pandemic .
“On behalf of the Quiner family, I would like to thank the public for their outpouring of love and support during this difficult ordeal,” she said. “We ask for privacy for Anne and the children as they grieve the loss of Scott, a wonderful husband and father.” – Marjorie Holsten laywer for the Quinner family.
The family feels Quiner didn’t receive adequate care at Mercy, Holsten said. She said that Anne told her a Texas doctor said Quiner was “the most undernourished patient he has ever seen.”

“D.C. officials alerted businesses Thursday about possible “threats” from pro-life and anti-vaccine protesters who might flout the city’s new vaccination passport mandate this week. The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development emailed the alert to city business owners Thursday morning, citing the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency’s (HSEMA) Business Emergency Management Operations Center. “Please be aware that there are many groups coming in from outside D.C. who may not be aware of or supportive of the District’s new vaccination requirements for certain establishments.” Organizers of Sunday’s “Defeat the Mandates” protest said unvaccinated protesters have no plans to break the law by demanding entry to local businesses. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will be the featured speaker at Sunday’s protest. He said any “violent provocations” will come from counterprotesters. – The Washington Times
Gotham City’s CDC’s latest arch villain and nemesis Egghead aka Joe Rogan has promoted the anti-vax march on his podcast.
We will not accept the Mandates We will not accept Segregation by Vaccination Status

“Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) announced on Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Massie, who is not vaccinated, wrote in a tweet that he was experiencing cold and allergy symptoms for one day “but seem[s] to be over it.” He said he will not be voting, attending in-person meetings or making public appearances until next week. – Rep Thomas Massie (R/L – KY)
Massie a notorious anti-vaxxer, anti-LGBT, anti Voting Rights Libertarian (or so he says) but runs as a Republican Massie is part of the infamous extreme right group named GANG GREENE comprising of, Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, and Marjorie Taylor Greene as the over-used Beaver.
Thoughts and prayers Tommy. Thoughts and prayers.
I will not be voting, meeting in person, or making public appearances until next week.
I am not vaccinated or boosted.
If trolls or media have other questions about my health status, the answer is most likely, “NUNYA.”
“Get onboard the biggest event of 2022 for Atlantis’ 30th Anniversary! 5500 guys. Superstar performers. Cutting edge productions. Legendary concerts. Mind-blowing parties. And you! All on the world’s largest and most spectacular ship. Sail from Miami on the new Oasis of the Seas with friends from around the world for a superstar-studded festival of endless fun and excitement unlike anything you’ve ever imagined.“
At a time when many cruises have been cancelled because of the recent surge in the Omnicronvariant of the Coronavirus!But that didn’t stop Atlantis Events from holding their 30th LGBT Anniversary cruise. (aka gay party sex boat) And while many cruise lines capping capacity at 50% to 70%. Atlantis and Royal Caribbean who owns the ship decided that wasn’t needed. I mean it’s not like the Gay and LBT community hasn’t been through a pandemic/plague before.
I cannot tell you how disgusted I am at the greed of both Atlantis and RC for packing the ship.There were 712,051 cases of Covid19 reported in the United States yesterday alone. And while the Omincron variant is less severe it is still dangerous to people who have underlying conditions and who are immune deficient. This is not rocket science. But obviously GREED means more than the health and welfare of a community that has already lived through the ravages of one pandemic.
And to make matters worse this cruise literally set sail the day after the expiration of the CDC mandates and as you can see from the pictures above none remained in effect.
Omnicron is 3x’s more communicable than any variant before and this time we cannot protect ourselves with rubbers.
ATLANTIS Events should be ashamed and shunned. And just so they know will be following any cases that develop over the next 2 weeks from the cruise and reporting on them
Lets just hope the next variant isn’t called Homocron.
Greedy fucking bastards.
*Full disclosure: I myself am an avid cruiser and actually cruised in late November. There were only 800 passengers. It was 25% full and there was not one case of coronavirus reported onboard..
Scott Quiner, 55, of Buffalo, was flown from the Twin Cities to Texas over the weekend, an attorney representing the family said. Scott Quiner’s case drew widespread attention last week after Mercy Hospital said it would disconnect the ventilator on Thursday. Quiner, who was unvaccinated, had been in the hospital’s ICU since Nov. 6 with critically low oxygen levels and had shown little signs of improvement since his arrival.
Quiner’s wife, Anne, went to Anoka County court seeking an emergency restraining order to prevent Mercy from disconnecting the ventilator. Without a judge’s decision, “my husband will die,” Anne wrote in her petition seeking the court’s action. A GoFundMe has pulled in more than $28,600 as of Monday morning. A second fundraiser on the Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo was seeking to raise $100,000. As of Monday, the effort had brought in $41,000
Of course anti-vax extremists and QAnon/Trump loons are besides themselves and Quinner’s wife wants to keep giving him futile care while taking up an ICU bed in a pandemic so she can give him ivermectin and vitamins.
I’m sure everything will turn out just fine. (No it won’t)
Scott Quiner didn’t listen to science and refused to get vaccinated. He’s been dying in a hospital since October. Now his family is insisting that science save him, even going as far as having him transferred to Texas.
House Democrat, Katherine Clark (D-Mass) the fourth-ranking House Democrat and Assistant Speaker has the sergeant-at-arms to force lawmakers who defy the chamber’s mask mandate to cast votes from enclosures in the gallery above to limit potential spread of COVID-19.
Clark said it’s clear that existing fines are not enough to deter certain lawmakers from repeatedly flouting rules requiring everyone to wear masks in the House chamber. And with the highly contagious omicron variant driving caseloads in the nation’s capital to record levels, Clark argued that pandemic safety rules need to be enforced.
She suggested using plexiglass enclosures in the gallery overlooking the House chamber, which were installed last year so that lawmakers subject to quarantine could still cast votes when proxy voting was temporarily unavailable.
The House mask mandate was first established in July 2020 because numerous GOP lawmakers refused to wear masks, including one who tested positive for COVID-19 after spending time in the chamber and at committee hearings.
Every Democratic House of Representatives member has been vaccinated and boosted.
Two far-right extremist Republicans, Georgia Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Andrew Clyde, have each been fined tens of thousands of dollars for repeatedly ignoring the requirement that everyone in the House chamber wear a mask during the pandemic.
If the House chamber has a rule and you break the rule – for example, you refuse to wear a face mask – why aren’t you barred from entry into the chamber? Totally barred.
The entitlement of the GOP and the the inherent failure of House Rules Committee when the Republicans break rules to take them to task is a massive failure of our Government.
An anti-vax protest outside Pfizer’s New York City headquarters imploded on Saturday afternoon as white nationalist anti-vaxxers showed up only to be publicly shunned by local anti-vaxxers demonstrating against vaccine mandates. The war of words erupted as the local New York Freedom organization attempted to distance itself from the ultra-racist followers of white nationalist and Unite the Right attendee Nick Fuentes.
Today organizers completely disavow infiltrators and trolls attempting to link medical freedom with extremist ideologies, namely Nick Fuentes and ‘Vax Watch,’” the local group posted to their Telegram channel. The outright rebuke apparently left a sour taste in the young white nationalist’s mouth, because he quickly tried to sic followers on the rival protesters.
