    What leadership looks like………

    President Biden To Support Waiving Patents For COVID-19 Vaccines

    The Biden administration plans to support a temporary waiver on patents and other intellectual property rules preventing developing countries from mass-producing COVID-19 vaccines, United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai announced on Wednesday.

    A group of developing countries led by India and South Africa was pushing for the move, which comes as a relief for global public health advocates.

    “The Administration believes strongly in intellectual property protections, but in the service of ending this pandemic, supports the waiver of these protections for COVID-19 vaccines,” Tai said in a statement.

    Maybe Biden could undo Trumps blocking of Sputnik V from Brazil. If Brazil got Sputnik V went it could have , a lot of lives would have been saved.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...putnik-russia/

    Buried deep in the dry, 72-page annual report of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services lay a startling admission: U.S. health officials under President Donald Trump worked to convince Brazil to reject Russia’s Sputnik V coronavirusvaccine.

    Brazil, which has the second-highest coronavirus death toll worldwide, has struggled to obtain adequate vaccine supplies. But the Health Attaché office within HHS’s Office of Global Affairs pushed the country to turn down offers of help from the Russians last year, according to the report.

    I wonder if Uncle Joe realizes that he has a deepening crisis on the southern border?

    I wonder if Ms. Psaki realizes how ridiculous she sounds describing the situation as a challenge.

    And I see the latest job numbers have fallen far short of projection.

    Ours is not to wonder why, ours is but to do and die.

    US immigration has always been a challenge on its southern border, but the last 50 years of US meddling in Central America is not Joe's doing.

    You may be right.

    I will keep an eye peeled nevertheless.

    Okay then beachbum, explain this............

    Sixty-three percent of American approve of President Biden's job performance thus far, according to an Associated Press-NORC poll released Monday, up 2 percentage points from late March.

    The poll surveyed 1,842 people from April 29 to May 3, and it has a margin of error of 3.2 percentage points.

    So we are talking about a 2 percent rise over the course of a month and a half.

    With a margin of error of 3.2 percent.

    Are these statistics in any manner meaningful?

    Yes, Mr. Biden has already accomplished a great, accepted.

    Would it then not be more productive to concentrate our attention on the more negative aspects of the administration?

    I did not the appreciate the article for a variety of reasons.

    The sunglasses advertised on the page however, seemed very attractive and at a good price.

    G.O.P. Claims Biden Is Artificially Inflating Job-Approval Rating By Displaying Competence

    By Andy Borowitz
    May 10, 2021




    Photograph by Patrick Semansky / AP



    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—With a new Associated Press poll showing Joe Biden garnering a sixty-three-per-cent general-approval rating, Republicans are accusing the President of “artificially inflating” that number through “blatant displays of competence.”
    “Joe Biden is the consummate Washington insider, and he knows how to game these polls,” Senator Rand Paul said. “If you want to get a high approval rating, all you have to do is do a job that people approve of.”

    Senator Ted Cruz agreed. “Joe Biden is so desperate to have a high approval rating that he’s been using every day in office to deliver results to the American people,” he charged. “I for one find this behavior beneath contempt.”


    Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene called Biden’s seventy-one-per-cent approval rating for his handling of the pandemic “a joke,” noting, “If all you care about is people liking the way you handle the pandemic, I guess you’d handle the pandemic all the livelong day. Big whoop.”






    The Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, said that Biden “should take no comfort” in his
    high approval numbers. “When people get tired of Biden’s competence—and they will—they’ll vote Republican,” he said.

    Is it a lie again (as usually) from RT that 120 retired generals/admirals question Biden's election? (not speaking about his mental health...)

    But even the Yahoo jumped on the bandwagon reporting that.
    More than 120 retired generals and admirals wrote to Biden appearing to back a false election conspiracy and questioning his mental health

    But nothing on (non-state) MSM, then it cannot be true, can be?

    Is Vlad not getting enough headlines lately, tovarish? OK:

    Russia arrests over 1,700 at rallies for hunger-striking Navalny


    ReutersPolina IvanovaMaria TsvetkovaPolina Nikolskaya

    Police rounded up more than 1,700 protesters on Wednesday as Russians in dozens of cities took part in rallies organised by allies of hunger-striking Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny over his failing health in jail.
    His spokeswoman was jailed for 10 days, and another close ally detained, on the same day that President Vladimir Putin delivered a state-of-the-nation speech warning the West not to cross Russia’s “red lines” and pointedly made no mention of Navalny.



    "This is one of the last gasps of a free Russia, as many are saying. We came out for Alexei ... against a war in Ukraine and the wild propaganda," said Marina, a student at the Moscow protest.
    OVD-Info, a group that monitors protests and detentions, said 1,782 people had been arrested, including 804 in St. Petersburg and 119 in the Urals city of Ufa.



    Protesters in central Moscow chanted, "Freedom to Navalny!" and "Let the doctors in!". Navalny's wife Yulia joined the rally in the capital, where demonstrators chanted her name.
    The opposition had hoped the rallies would be the biggest in modern Russian history, and presented them as an attempt to save Navalny's life by persuading the authorities to allow his own doctors to treat him.
    But turnout looked smaller than during protests earlier this year before Navalny was jailed for 2-1/2 years for parole violations related to what he said were politically motivated charges of embezzlement.
    Police said 6,000 people protested illegally in Moscow, while Navalny's YouTube channel said turnout in the capital was up to 10 times higher. Alexey Venediktov, a veteran journalist and head of the Ekho Moskvy radio station, said 10,000-15,000 people had rallied in Moscow and 7,000-9,000 in St Petersburg.



    The 44-year-old Navalny, who last year survived a nerve agent attack that Russian authorities denied carrying out, is thin and weak after starving himself for three weeks, and his allies say he risks kidney failure or cardiac arrest. The United States has warned Russia it will face "consequences" if he dies.
    The state human rights commissioner, Tatyana Moskalkova, said four doctors from outside the federal prison agency had visited Navalny on Tuesday and found no serious health problems. Russia says he has been treated as would any other prisoner.
    The confrontation over Navalny's fate is a flashpoint in Moscow's dire relations with the West, already aggravated by economic sanctions, diplomatic expulsions and a Russian military buildup near Ukraine.



    U.N. human rights experts urged Moscow to let Navalny be medically evaluated abroad. They said they believed his life was in danger as he was being held in “conditions that could amount to torture”.

    Well, such a general or admiral will hardly go to drink a shitty coffee at Starbucks. Now they are at last free to say what they want without fear that they will get kicked out straight away. Their pension is guaranteed, some "small" money they surely have been able to give aside.

    And they know a thing or two about what's going on, don't they?
