After SCOTUS Rulings, Los Angeles County Lifts Ban on Indoor Worship Services Following two rulings from the U.S. Supreme Court last week that sided with houses of worship over state government coronavirus restrictions, Los Angeles County lifted its ban on indoor church services. In a press release issued Saturday, the county declared it was “modifying” its Health Officer Order.

I guess this autism mom believes that the measles vaccine (or rather the MMR) CAUSES autism? I never GOT that one, there weren't that many vaccines AVAILABLE when I was little, but obviously I didn't DIE when I got measles as a "tweenybopper". It isn't one of my FONDEST childhood memories, regardless. I was BORN with autism. My now adult daughter, SHE got the MMR vaccine right on schedule, along with all other childhood vaccines. She's NOT on the autism spectrum. So WHAT if this autism mom caused a s**tstorm on Facebook. This is Minds... Autism might not be a walk in the park, but you don't DIE from it (you CAN die from some vaccine preventable diseases). Autism is NOT some kind of vaccine injury/damage. Vaccines in and of themselves do NOT cause it, but vaccines DO prevent disease and save millions of lives worldwide every year. 😏 -Mrs. entryreqrd https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1188397146668552192

‘Shameful’: Ilhan Omar blasts fellow 'Squad' member Ocasio-Cortez for taking COVID vaccine "It’s disturbing to see members be 1st to get vaccine" Rep. Ilhan Omar is a member of "The Squad," four first-term Democratic lawmakers that includes Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. But that didn't stop Omar from blasting one of her Squad members for getting the COVID-19 vaccine before the millions of health-care workers and seniors across the U.S. have been inoculated. Omar called it “shameful” that healthy, young lawmakers — such as the 31-year-old Ocasio-Cortez — are getting the vaccine before those most vulnerable to the virus. “It’s now clear that we don’t have enough vaccines for everyone and there is shortage of supply, we have to prioritize those who need it most,” Omar wrote on Twitter on Sunday. "That’s why it’s disturbing to see members be 1st to get vaccine while most frontline workers, elderly and infirm in our districts, wait," she added. Ocasio-Cortez posted a video of herself receiving the vaccine on Instagram on Friday, and older lawmakers like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 81, who is third in the line of succession to the presidency, have received the shot, too. But in a follow-up tweet, Omar said it was “shameful” that lawmakers were receiving the vaccine based on their perceived importance. “It would makes sense if it was age, but unfortunately it’s of importance and its shameful,” she wrote. “We are not more important then frontline workers, teachers etc. who are making sacrifices everyday. Which is why I won’t take it. People who need it most, should get it. Full stop," she added. Who takes the shots has become political. On Monday, former Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard ripped lawmakers for taking the vaccine before American seniors and vowed not to get the vaccine until the elderly had received them. “I planned to take the vaccine but will now stand in solidarity with our seniors by not doing so until they can. I urge my colleagues in Congress who are under the age of 65 and healthy to join me,” she said in a Twitter video. Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, 38, retweeted Gabbard, adding, “I’m with you Tulsi!” And Rep.-elect Nancy Mace of South Carolina went further, saying it was wrong for lawmakers to get the shots. “Congress shouldn’t be putting themselves first in line for the COVID-19 vaccination when the average American can’t get it,” she wrote on Twitter. “For as long as the vaccines are limited, we should prioritize healthcare and frontline workers, and every person at greater risk, especially the elderly.” “I’ll wait my turn in line with the rest of my constituents when the vaccine becomes available to the rest of us. And yes, I will get it,” she added. --‘Shameful’: Ilhan Omar blasts fellow 'Squad' member Ocasio-Cortez for taking COVID vaccine | Just The News --https://justthenews.com/government/congress/shameful-ilhan-omar-blasts-fellow-squad-member-ocasio-cortez-taking-covid -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 14:59:30 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

The Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society has lodged a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia that calls for the legislatures in five states to be permitted to certify electors before the congressional count occurs. Those five states are Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to a press release from the Amistad Project. "The lawsuit argues that current federal and local statutes interfere with state legislatures' constitutional right to certify Presidential electors, in a direct violation of separation of powers. It also cites an Amistad Project white paper which illustrates how the Electoral College vote deadline of December 14 is arbitrary and does not apply to the contested states," the press release says. "Currently, state law and the executive branch refusal have prevented state legislatures from meeting as a body to review, investigate and debate the method in which the election was conducted." The suit seeks to have portions of federal and local law that interfere with state legislatures' right to certify presidential electors deemed unconstitutional. The lawsuit aims to make certain that the vice president and U.S. Congress do not count the presidential elector votes from the states before a respective state legislature is able to hold a joint session for a vote to certify electors. "Governors in these contested states have declared themselves to be the law due to COVID and are now actively preventing the state legislatures from exercising their constitutional authority to review the election process," Director of the Amistad Project Phill Kline said in a statement. "Governors do not have a right to certify election results through fiat," he said. "The Constitution gives state legislatures alone the right to certify Presidential electors," Kline noted. --Lawsuit calls for allowing 5 states' legislatures to certify electors before congressional count | Just The News --https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/elections/lawsuit-calls-permitting-5-states-legislatures-certify-electors -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 14:58:21 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)
