    SUPER BOWL CELEBRATION SUPER SPREADER? MORE LIKE SUPER LIES FROM THE MEDIA





    Everyone predicted two things when it came to Super Bowl LV — that Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady would find a way to get it done with his new team, and that the maskless Buccaneers victory celebration that followed would serve as a “super spreader” of COVID-19.
    Only one of those things came true.
    “Thousands of maskless Tampa fans flooded the streets, celebrating the Super Bowl win while risking a super spreader event,” read a headline from The Washington Post.
    “Tampa’s maskless Super Bowl celebration leads to super spreader fears,” cowered The Huffington Post.



    But two weeks later, there’s no evidence that any of that happened, as the data shows cases are actually down in Tampa and surrounding areas since the big game.


    One reporter, from no less than CNN, actually asked police at the large gathering what they were going to do about those who celebrated without a mask. Just for effect, she wore two masks when posing her question.


    So often the media has made these sorts of dire predictions, because we all know that fear sells. But when those predictions are proven wrong, those same outlets almost always resort to utter silence … often followed by more fear-mongering.
    Truth doesn’t generally factor into the equation, and so far, the truth about the Super Bowl celebrations is it has resulted in a whole lot of nothing.

    The Covid-19 vaccine made by BioNTech and Pfizer has been highly effective at preventing infection in Israel, according to the first real-world data showing that vaccination stops transmission of the virus.

    The results gathered by Israel’s health ministry, and seen by the Financial Times, showed that the vaccine was 89 per cent effective at preventing infection of any kind and 94 per cent effective against symptomatic infection.

    The new data — which has not yet been peer reviewed — provide the first real-world demonstration of the vaccine’s effectiveness and offers hope that those immunised will also help to stem the spread of infection.

    They are also saying it is over 85% even after only one dose.

    That's good. Covid should be a thing of the past in the USA in a matter of months.

    COVID Death Toll up More Than 25% During Biden's First Month in Office

    As a presidential candidate, Joe Biden took a swaggering tone when asked about COVID-19 and said he would “shut down the virus” if elected.
    However, during his first month in office, almost 100,000 Americans have died, according to new statistics from the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.


    Based on the center’s numbers, as of Saturday, 99,763 U.S. residents had died since Biden took office.

    Amid Her Crushing COVID Restrictions, Reports Now Say New Mexico Gov. Spent Thousands of Taxpayer Money on Booze and Gourmet Food

    Even as Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham was telling New Mexicans that life had to be hard and locked down amid the coronavirus pandemic, she was spending money on high-priced luxuries, according to a new report.
    Documents show that among nearly $13,500 spent by the office through its discretionary fund in the second half of 2020, more than $6,500 has doled out for Wagyu beef, tuna steaks and bottles of tequila, vodka, gin, wine and beer, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

    “It really appears in the Governor’s Office as if she really believes herself to be more privileged than everybody else in New Mexico,” said Republican state House Minority Whip Rod Montoya, who said the governor has a salary that should cover her food needs.

    “I didn’t realize the governor was so underpaid that she has to use discretionary money for things that she should be paying for herself,” he said. “Legislators are all up here doing our job, and we’re doing it on per diem.”
    Republican state House Minority Leader Jim Townsend said Lujan Grisham crossed a line.

    “It’s not what tax dollars ought to be spent for,” he said. “In the time when people are hurting all over the state, using their tax dollars to buy Wagyu beef has got to be a little bit disenchanting to many people. I think it’s just more of indication of the problem that we have had and the governor has had connecting with people.”
    The governor was also being criticized for holding in-person meetings with select groups of state officials and legislators.

    Townsend said Lujan Grisham was “acting like she’s better than everyone else.”
    Lujan Grisham had been among the government leaders who urged families not to gather at Thanksgiving.

    “I know it’s hard because we’ve had eight months where we can’t be with our friends and families,” she said then. “Do everything in your power not to mix households. I know that that’s asking a lot because Thanksgiving is exactly how we celebrate, bringing our families from multiple households together. This is ripe for spreading this virus.”
    Tripp Stelnicki, the governor’s spokesman, said the fuss over a few socially distanced meetings was overblown.
    “There’s a difference between inviting someone into your house for the Super Bowl or someone’s birthday and having three or four Cabinet secretaries there to talk about their budgets amid an unprecedented economic downturn and to work out what we’re going to propose or recommend to the Legislature given the changing economic forecast,” he said.
    "I mean,” he said, “the governor does live there, but it’s not like she’s inviting them into her living room.”
    Townsend said Lujan Grisham was guilty of the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do syndrome that has ensnared other politicians.

    “Those are the kinds of things that cause people to totally distrust the government,” he said. “When they see these [messages] of, ‘You need to stay home and you can’t have your family for Christmas and you can’t do this and you can’t do that,’ but I’m going to sit here and eat Wagyu beef and buy hundreds of dollars of alcohol with your tax dollars. What in the world would you expect them to think?”
    Stelnicki said that a staff member — whom he did not name — who purchased $200 worth of liquor “might have been guilty of some optimistic thinking” when COVID numbers were dropping and the prospect of holiday parties loomed.

    He said the liquor has never been opened.
    Lujan Grisham on Friday said she had done nothing wrong, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.
    “I don’t want New Mexicans to feel like I don’t take seriously their hardship,” she said.
    She described the staff member who bought the booze as a “woman who works here [who] is a rock star.”
