In updated guidance on COVID-19 testing strategies, the World
“Widespread testing of asymptomatic populations, including through self-testing, is not currently recommended, based on lack of evidence on impact and cost-effectiveness of such approaches and the concern that this approach risks diverting resources from higher priority testing indications,” the guidance stated.
However, “countries with the resources and desire to expand testing to the general public (regardless of symptoms) should demonstrate that they have the necessary public health infrastructure in place to respond to positive results and that resources are not being taken away from the testing of suspected cases, which is the top priority,” the WHO told The Epoch Times via email.
Testing should be directed “to where they are expected to have the biggest public health impact,” the WHO said, adding, “this means that all those who are suspected [as defined by the WHO] to have COVID-19 based on symptoms should be prioritized for testing,” irrespective of their vaccination status or disease history.
But in areas with ongoing community transmission, anyone who has come in contact with a probable or confirmed case should still quarantine for 14 days regardless if they are asymptomatic and have not been confirmed positive.
And then walks in KARMA! It says… ‘HELLO! Now… You can just back that ole truck right on up!!’
I don’t know about you but I sure needed to see this!!! Between DC politics, crazy vaccine stories, people shooting each other, children being trafficked, kids being turned into transgender tools, teachers whining on the left because they are being attached by parents who say “take your radical liberalism and CRT and shove it! Buildings being blown up, whistleblowers getting whacked… And CENSORSHIP OUT THE BACK END OF A HORSE (ass) You get the picture… As a wanna-be 😆vigilante, researcher, blogger attemptee, yes I just made that word up, 😆 it’s all I can do some days to not think that maybe working at the Post Office wouldn’t be such a bad idea. At least if I were to go “postal” and rip downs some walls in the back room no body who ever think anything about it! I know, not funny but considering the things that are “favorable” and “fashionable” by some in society today… I’m past worrying about my verbage. Being politically correct is not my strong suit anyway.
I did the typical things the other parents wanted their girls to do like ballet… cheerleading, drill team, all the girl stuff… Always loved dancing! Still do! But my favorite place was hanging around at the rodeo.Every Friday and Saturday night, the Mesquite Rodeo (unless I was grounded, lol).
Dad was a lawyer, Mom stayed home and took care of us 4 girls with me being the oldest. Nenaw was always there to help Mom and to watch wrestling with me on Saturday nights when I was grounded for 6 weeks because got a “C” in conduct for giggling (frequently)
“Yes Mam”, “No Sir”, “please”, “thank you”, “would you my seat? to the elders “May I… ? NEVER “Can” I… Because Dad’s famous last were always… I don’t know, “CAN” you? See… the word “can’t” was NOT ALLOWED because “Can’t NEVER COULD DO ANYTHING”. Yeah, he was strict as hell and I tried not to get into trouble but it was hard! Being a total free spirited moon child that really just wanted to explore, soak up the sun, smell flowers and have conversati a with animals, rules and confinement, tying to be an example to my little sisters as I was often told I should do was just a little more pressure than I cared to have but I tried… Sort of… I didn’t care for the bars on my bedroom windows much either, they just weren’t my thing!
Now, at the dear lease… It was a TOTAL DIFFERENT STORY! NO RULES AT THE DEER LEASE! 😊 The only OTHER time I didn’t have to tow the line was when I was on my horse. (Except for being home before dark). We lived outside the city limits so I rode for hours all over the place! All the time! I would jump on the back of that big beautiful horse and just disappear! I’d slip into my own little world and explore every inch of acre around me, wherever I would happen to end up at. If I thought I couldn’t have gotten away with it I would have road off into the sunset and just kept riding!! Life was the best while on the back of my horse! I sure miss it.
I never really felt like I had a voice as a young girl because no matter what I was trying to say it was considered “talking back” and you just weren’t allowed to give Dad any “lip” as he called it. And… Don’t you dare cry or he’d give you a real reason to cry! Anybody else relate? I’m not complaining here, but it was his way or the highway!
I grew up though and turned out okay after what seemed like an eternity of years of trials, errors, mistakes and so on.
My point is this… I don’t like the feeling of being controlled, managed, restrained, hushed, belittled as if I have no mind of my own to decide what is best for me.
As the days go by, more and more I feel like much of the world around me is trying to make lame attempts of forcing my life into a direction or place that I would rather die than go to!
Maybe that’s why I continue to fight like hell against it. Well, no not maybe! It is! I felt contained most of my young and adult life and for me to NOT fight for freedom would be I’m the most unnatural thing I could ever do. I’ve always been on the firey, passionate side anyway and it’s definitely glaring now!!
Bottom line… WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE! I feel it down to the core of my soul. This is bullshit! I’m fed up, I’m disappointed, I’m tired as hell but im determined! I was born on Flag Day (like Trump) I’ve owned a Flag and Flagpole Business, I have a little US flag on a pole tattoo with the Rose of Texas at the top of the pole. I’m all about AMERICA! And I am definitely about freedom! Not for just myself but for the world!
No more Crimes against humanity…
No more CHILD TRAFFICKING, Human Trafficking, no more seizes the minds of our children! No more Cartels running our southern borders, no more force of experimental drugs, no more fear!
NO! NO MORE!
We need to unite on levels that have never been seen! They must know that WE THE PEOPLE WILL NEVER ALLOW THIS AGAIN!!
China is coming for us. If you don’t understand that you have been snoozing way too too long.
We can not depend on Biden, Trump, Congress, Governors, other politicians or anyone else!
We are at war. Do NOT… I repeat…
DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR WEAPONS! Under any circumstances!
It us and God!!! Whoever else wants to carry a torch with us… Come on!
That’s where I’m at!!! I’m so past being over all this crap I literally want to scream sometimes.
I can’t just sit back and wait for a fairy with a magic wand! I don’t for a minute think that God is going to just step in and miraculously fix it all these problems either. I think He wants us to prove where our honor lies!!! We made this mess not Him! We stood around and just ignored it all for the most part.
So, this is where we are! Please pay attention. Please plan accordingly.
Lastly, sorry for rambling, I never do this on this blog but this has been eating at me so much I had to do something with it.
God Bless America and God Bless you!
In a hilariously ironic move, YouTube permanently banned Right Wing Watch on Monday, a far-left organization that seeks to de-platform conservative figures and outlets. After a backlash from the Left, YouTube reportedly reversed their decision.
“Our efforts to expose the bigoted view and dangerous conspiracy theories spread by right-wing activists has now resulted in [YouTube] banning our channel and removing thousands of our videos,” Right Wing Watch announced on Twitter. “We attempted to appeal this decision, and YouTube rejected it.”
The organization shared a screenshot of what they claimed to be a message from YouTube.
“We have reviewed your content and found severe or repeated violations of our Community Guidelines,” the message read. “Because of this, we have removed your channel from YouTube.”
People were quick to point out the irony that Right Wing Watch, an organization dedicated to the censorship of conservative content online, was itself censored.
Tim Pool, an outspoken voice on the subject of social media censorship, described the decision as “perfectly ironic.”
“You got burned by the fire you started,” he tweeted. “We warned you that this is exactly what would happen if you push for censorship.”
“This is perfectly ironic,” he added.
Journalist Andy Ngoresponded, “[Right Wing Watch]’s YouTube channel has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of the platform’s community guidelines. RWW itself works to get others banned & has mocked those who speak about cancel culture.”
Dave Rubin tweeted, “Siri, what is irony?”
The Claremont Institute’s Nick Short replied to Right Wing Watch with a meme of a boxer punching himself in the face.
Mark Hemingway, a senior writer at RealClearInvestigations, responded, “Ahem, I believe the mandatory Twitter response here is, ‘Shut up, you snowflake. YouTube is a private company and they can do whatever they want.’”
“Anyway, I kid but if you think deplatforming will only hurt those evil right wingers or won’t become a First Amendment issue if you don’t fight it, you’re delusional. Canada’s about to make online ‘hate speech’ punishable by $16K fines, a law which will promptly be abused,” he added.
The move by YouTube was a mistake, with Right Wing Watch’s channel being reinstated on Monday afternoon, according toThe Daily Beast.
“Right Wing Watch’s YouTube channel was mistakenly suspended, but upon further review, has now been reinstated,” a YouTube spokesperson said, according to The Daily Beast. The outlet added that “the social-media site also suggested that the issue was a mistake due to high volume of content and that they attempted to move quickly to undo the ban.”
“Meanwhile, many of the far-right extremists merely exposed by RWW remain on the platform,” The Daily Beast claimed.
Right Wing Watchwas launched in 2007, and claims to be “dedicated to monitoring and exposing the activities and rhetoric of right-wing activists and organizations in order to expose their extreme agenda.”

The long peace under President Trump is over and the new militarism under Democratic president Joe Biden is upon us. On Sunday, the U.S. conducted airstrikes against Iranian-backed militia in Syria and Iraq.
The airstrikes targeted “facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups” near the border of Iraq and Syria, according to the Associated Press.
Defense Press Secretary John Kirby said the ‘militias were using the facilities to launch unmanned aerial vehicle attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq,’ according to the AP, adding that the military ‘targeted three operational and weapons storage facilities — two in Syria and one in Iraq.
He described the airstrikes as “defensive,” saying they were launched in response to an “ongoing series of attacks by Iran-backed groups targeting U.S. interests in Iraq.”
“The United States took necessary, appropriate, and deliberate action designed to limit the risk of escalation — but also to send a clear and unambiguous deterrent message,” Kirby said.
“Mr. Kirby said the facilities were used by Iranian-backed militias, including Kata’ib Hezbollah and Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada, to store arms and ammunition for carrying out attacks against places where Americans were located in Iraq. There were no immediate reports of casualties but a military after-action review is ongoing, Pentagon officials said,” the NY Times reported.
“Al Jazeera’s Mahmoud Abdelwahed, who is in Baghdad, said the attacks were ‘significant’ and noted that the groups targeted were threatening to retaliate,” the network reported.
“After this threat we might see an escalation against military facilities,” he said.
Biden and the White House declined to comment on the attacks on Sunday.
It is the second time the Biden administration has taken military action in the Middle East. The U.S. launched airstrikes in February against Syrian facilities near the Iraqi border, which it said were being used by Iranian-backed militia groups.
Biden said at the time that Iran is being warned that the U.S. will retaliate if militia groups target American troops.
“You can’t act with impunity. Be careful,” Biden said.
The Democratic president’s lack of hesitancy to use military action contrasts with the peaceful presidency of Donald Trump, who withdrew troops from Iraq and Afghanistan and did not initiate a foreign war.
