    U.S. to Restrict Travel from 8 African Countries over Coronavirus Variant Fears

    https://www.breitbart.com/health/202...variant-fears/

    JOSHUA CAPLAN 26 Nov 2021

    The U.S. will restrict travel for non-U.S. citizens from South Africa and seven other countries on Monday after the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) labeled a new coronavirus strain a “variant of concern.”

    The U.S. will also restrict travel from the following African nations: Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.

    President Joe Biden issued a statement addressing U.S.’s decision to restrict travel, calling the move a “precautionary measure” until additional information on the variant emerges.

    “This morning I was briefed by my chief medical advisor, Dr. Tony Fauci, and the members of our COVID response team, about the Omicron variant, which is spreading through Southern Africa,” Biden said in a statement. “As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries. These new restrictions will take effect on November 29. As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.”

    “For now, I have two important messages for the American people, and one for the world community.First, for those Americans who are fully vaccinated against severe COVID illness – fortunately, for the vast majority of our adults — the best way to strengthen your protection is to get a booster shot, as soon as you are eligible,” the president continued. “Boosters are approved for all adults over 18, six months past their vaccination and are available at 80,000 locations coast-to-coast. They are safe, free, and convenient. Get your booster shot now, so you can have this additional protection during the holiday season.Second, for those not yet fully vaccinated: get vaccinated today.”

    “In addition, I call on the nations gathering next week for the World Trade Organization ministerial meeting to meet the U.S. challenge to waive intellectual property protections for COVID vaccines, so these vaccines can be manufactured globally. I endorsed this position in April; this news today reiterates the importance of moving on this quickly,” he concluded.

    The U.S.’s decision to restrict travel from the African countries comes after similar comes by European Union, United Kingdom, and Canada.

    “All air travel to these countries should be suspended until we have a clear understanding about the danger posed about this new variant and travelers returning from these regions should respect strict quarantine rules,”European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said.

    Stupid mostly. It's already outside of Africa. Positive tests for this variant have already been made in Europe. Considering mostly the variant is not tested for it's widespread already by this time.

    South Africa I would say is not racist per se, it's not about white or black, there's some of that of course... In general there are lots of groups who all have some overlap here and there but mostly just hate each other.

    I understand.

    All I'm doing, is once again, pointing out the painful and blatant hypocrisy of the Marxist left in the US.

    When Trump did the exact same thing on flights from China last year, he was roundly condemned, by people including the current Resident, as a racist, xenophobic, $#@!lord.

    That's precisely why, if you ever find yourself in a public $#@!storm, over some offhand, impolitic or non-woke remark you may have made, above all else, never, EVER, for any reason, offer any kind of "apology".

    These are vicious, dangerous people and should be handled with all the care and precaution as if handling a rattlesnake.

    But their words, you are right about, are not to be taken seriously as they are now not rooted in any form of reality and are just the rantings and ravings of the politically insane. Like the snake's rattle, it can't harm you.

    But those fangs and venom are real dangers.

    In many, if not most cases, possibly all cases, only the injected are permitted to fly, especially if it's international air travel.

    So this really is a pandemic of the injected.

    By default, they are the ones carrying AND spreading it.

    Just an FYI, but everything after the “?” in your link was tracking information.

    Back on the subject, if the virus has mutated so much, are the tests accurate for these newer variants? Inquiring minds want to know.

    We know quite a lot about Covid now. Unless there is a clear indicator that this variant is more deadly, than what is the point? Travel restrictions sometimes make sense, but is this really contained to that area, or has it already spread, which is likely? Once again, it’s probably too late for travel restrictions.

    Levi Strauss Will Host ‘Fireside Chat’ with ‘Racial Trauma Specialist’ for Employees over Rittenhouse Acquittal

    https://www.breitbart.com/social-jus...house-verdict/

    Clothing company Levi Strauss is offering employees the opportunity to engage in a “fireside chat and Q&A” with a “racial trauma specialist” following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse on November 19.

    The announcement came via email from Levi Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer Elizabeth Morrison, according to a copy of the email obtained by the @libsoftiktok Twitter account.



    https://twitter.com/libsoftiktok/sta...use-verdict%2F

    (Note the carefully worded bull$#@! in the first line: "failed to convict". No, snowflake, that would be a mistrial or hung jury. He was acquitted. That means INNOCENT. - AF)

    “With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was not convicted in the shooting of three individuals – two of whom lost their lives – during racial justice protests last year, this is a difficult day for many,” the email begins.

    The email continues:

    The pain and trauma of race, identity and belief-based tragedies is a reality that many of us are struggling with on an ongoing basis. It can feel physically, mentally, and emotionally draining to continue to relive these moments and I want you to know, its okay not to be okay. Please also know that my team and I are here for you and are working hard to create opportunities for you to express how you are feeling.

    To help promote safety, sharing and to encourage healing, I’ll be hosting a fireside chat and Q&A with Dr. Jamila Codrington, a licensed psychologist and racial trauma specialist in early December. Dr. J and I will talk about the mental and physical impacts of back-to-back social and racial justice events and trauma coping mechanisms during our discussion.

    The email goes on to list resources to assist employees in impacting “social justice, equality, and drive positive change.”

    The methods listed include “getting educated and informed on the issue of gun violence so you can be an active citizen in your community” and “reaching out to your elected officials to let them know just how important common-sense gun laws are to you.”

    Jamila Codrington is a licensed New York State psychologist and serves on the board of the New York Association of Black Psychologists, according to the organization’s website.

    In an interview on the Karen Hunter Show, which was posted to the show’s YouTube channel on January 6, 2021, Codrington was asked:

    If you could just prescribe a therapeutic regiment for someone who is coming out of the enslavement space or someone who is coming out of Jim Crow – what would a therapeutic regiment for that community or that person look like as we experience therapy now?

    She responded in part:

    Wow, beautiful question Marie. You know, I think the first thing for me is always to reach back and remember who we are, because one of the main weapons of colonialism and white supremacy was to destroy our memory, and to separate us from, basically our wealth, our cultural wealth. We’ve been erased out of history books, we were forced not to speak our native tongue.

    Codrington later added, “We have been duped into feeling that we don’t matter, and all of that is coming out of a legacy of enslavement, and we have to defy this lie of inferiority.”

    (Maybe start by not slaughtering each other like feral animals. Ya think? - AF)

    In response to a follow-up question later in the interview, she stated, “We have to first start out with decolonizing our mind and our values.”

    [...]

    The @libsoftiktok account has posted the same sort of thing from a lot of other companies, too (such as Best Buy and Kaiser Permanente.) It's another symptom of the "woke" takeover of corporate HR departments - and they don't even need the endorsements of the CEOs or board members, either (most of those people wouldn't have the spine to stand up to them anyway, even if they did have objections).

    And the same Twitter account covered a lot of colleges/universities cranking out the same kind of guff (turned up to eleven) in the wake of the Rittenhouse veridct: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post7074000

    Without necessarily relating this to OP news, it's amazing why SJW & woke movements have never taken on racist Dems?
    Because this topic was framed as being about people of foreign countries and skin pigmentation, many Dems' anti-brown racism/anti-semitism also led to the biggest US policy blunder in history for which future generations will pay the price for centuries to come.
