Marsha Blackburn says to restore Trust, Joe Biden Must Hold Anthony Fauci, International Organizations Accountable

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Throughout the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, Tennesseans followed the advice of public health officials and international bodies like the World Health Organization. In spite of the devastating costs, we shut down our businesses and re-ordered our lives. By April 2020, Tennessee’s unemployment rate had reached a record high of 15.5%, and by March of 2021, more than 84,000 jobs had evaporated.

Now we know that while we were holed up in our homes, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) operatives were covering up the origins of COVID-19 Coronavirus, and those same health officials in whom we placed our trust were complicit in Beijing’s deception.

Marsha Blackburn: Apple’s Dangerous Double Standard

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – From watching our grandkids play video games to typing out our weekly grocery lists, mobile devices have become a part of practically everything we do. But how much do we really know about the corporations who control those devices?

Take Apple, a company whose brand is synonymous with modern progressivism and ingenuity. From its humble beginnings in Steve Jobs’ garage, the company has morphed into a household name. Recently, they’ve used their considerable platform to issue woke proclamations on American social issues and even launched a nationwide Racial Equity and Justice Initiative to “dismantle systemic barriers” in communities of color.
