Today is December 27 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion.
1.Removing masks on airplanes ‘not something we should even be considering
Fox News – National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said that taking masks off while on an airplane is “not something we should even be considering.”
Fauci made the comments while on ABC’s This Week on Sunday and was responding to a question from Jonathan Karl on a vaccine mandate for domestic air travel.
During a U.S. Senate panel hearing on Dec. 15, Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly said that masks “don’t add much, if anything” to fight the spread of COVID-19 on airplanes.
DML: Fauci also supports mandating vaccine passports for domestic travel. His asinine opinions and suggestions appear to ignore the fact that the vaccine does not work as sold. The vaccine does NOT protect people from getting Covid like a vaccine should. Bottom line: Fauci is a bigger moron than Alec Baldwin, and that’s almost impossible to do. In fact, one cannot ignore the commonality between the two men. Meaning, Baldwin killed someone recently. Is there not basis for an argument that says Fauci has done the same? Like Baldwin, his role in innocent people dying isn’t intentional. It’s accidental of course. If the argument holds water it would be a result of his lack of good judgement. Meaning, how many people do you think may have died because they listened to Fauci tout the vaccine, or because they wore a mask and developed deadly lung issues as a result? Only Democrats think Fauci is worth listening to, and the same can be said about Baldwin in my opinion.
2.Bodybuilder son, 29, is arrested after ‘shooting his parents’ on Christmas morning
DailyMail – The bodybuilding-crazed son of a family that helped shape New York City’s skyline has been arrested after allegedly shooting his parents at their sprawling $3.2million Long Island estate on Christmas morning.
Construction magnate Rocco Tomassetti, 65, and wife Vinceta Marsicano-Tomassetti, were shot inside their 8,751-square foot mansion in tiny Hewlett Harbor about 10 am.
Their 29-year-old son Dino Tomassetti allegedly fled the scene in a Cadillac Escalade before he was arrested in New Jersey later that night, police said.
The parents survived the shooting but their status was no revealed.
Police have not released a motive for the shootings, nor have they updated the public on the condition of the victims.
DML: The guy looks like a total meathead.
3.Despite supply issues and omicron, holiday sales rise 8.5%
CNBC – Holiday sales rose at the fastest pace in 17 years, even as shoppers grappled with higher prices, product shortages and a raging new Covid-19 variant in the last few weeks of the season, according to one spending measure.
Mastercard SpendingPulse, which tracks all kinds of payments including cash and debit cards, reported Sunday that holiday sales had risen 8.5% from a year earlier. Mastercard SpendingPulse had expected a 7.4% increase.
The results, which covered Nov. 1 through Dec. 24, were fueled by purchases of clothing and jewelry.
Holiday sales were up 10.7% compared with the pre-pandemic 2019 holiday period.
DML: People continue to spend Biden bucks, aka the free money you get when Covid dictates an election.
4. The Crazy Left Podcast set to launch January 3 on The DML NEWS APP
On Monday, January 3, “The Crazy Left Podcast with Alec Lace” launches exclusively on The DML News App and TeamDML.com. The podcast will focus on the insane policies, comments, and actions taken by Democrats, socialists, far-left liberals, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and anti-gender people living in the US. The audio version of the new program will be free for listeners on The DML NEWS APP. The video version is available only on TeamDML.com. The program will air every Monday and Wednesday before noon, Eastern Standard Time. An alert will be sent to The DML NEWS App when the program is live. Then on every Friday, DML and Lace will do a joint program where a portion of the show will focus on the damage the left is doing to America. Again, the Friday program is free for listeners but the video version is available only to members of TeamDML.com
DML: Below is a sneak peak of the opening music and video. My focus in 2022 will be to bring on more talent to TeamDML. I think this program will be a smash hit.
5. NY’s latest mandate goes into effect today
CNN – As the Omicron coronavirus variant spreads across the country, more events are being canceled or postponed, airlines and cruise lines are scrambling to deal with last-minute changes, and New York City’s vaccine mandate for the private sector is set to go into effect Monday.
The new requirements begin as the state broke a single-day record with 49,708 new Covid-19 cases reported on Christmas Eve, according to data released on Sunday by Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office.
“As we come home from holiday gatherings, it is as important as ever to take precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 this season,” Hochul said in a statement. “The vaccine is the best tool we have to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe as we head into the new year.”
The highly contagious Omicron variant was a factor in New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to implement a vaccine mandate for private sector employees, he said earlier this month.
Children ages 5-11 in New York are now also required to show proof of at least one shot before being allowed access to indoor dining, fitness or entertainment, and adults will be required to show proof of two vaccinations for those areas.
DML: I don’t understand it. How can anyone say the vaccine is the best defense when it doesn’t work like a vaccine is supposed to work. Countless numbers of people are coming down with COVID after vaccination. I have many friends who have had the vax and still caught COVID. Meanwhile, as I have pointed out several times this week, the National Institute of Health recognizes other forms of potential prevention and mitigation, but why won’t they publicly promote the findings? Example of this: CBD. The following quotes are from the NIH website in 2021. “The rapid spread of COVID-19 underscores the need for new treatments. Here we report that cannabidiol (CBD), a compound produced by the cannabis plant, inhibits SARS-CoV-2 infection.” Here is another quote, “Cannabidiol (CBD) is a potent inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 infection in vitro. Another quote, “CBD promotes host cell interferon responses and inhibits viral induction of cytokines.” And another, “Our results suggest that CBD can block SARS-CoV-2 infection at early stages of infection, and CBD administration is associated with a lower risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection in humans.” And finally, in what they tag as a “summary sentence,” the NIH writes: “Cannabidiol from the cannabis plant has potential to prevent and inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infection.” Remember, these are NOT my words, but the words of the US Government after a study conducted by the Univ. of Chicago in 2021. With the above in mind, for two and half years I have been taking DML CBD. I have not had as much as a head cold, and to my knowledge I have never contracted COVID. Is it coincidence? I don’t think so, but I ain’t making any medical claims. That said, I truly think it’s my CBD that’s doing the trick. I have countless testimonials from my customers stating the same, and my two oldest kids and wife take my CBD every day — they can say the same.
