Philippine Capital Manila Bans Unvaccinated from Public Transport

The Philippine federal government this week ordered local governments across Metro Manila to begin enforcing a public transportation ban on all people not vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus, meaning anyone who cannot provide proof of coronavirus vaccination may not board buses, trains, boats, or planes in the Philippine national capital region, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported Thursday.

The Philippine Department of Transportation [DOTr] instructed all mayors across Metro Manila — which contains 17 cities, including Manila — to start enforcing the “no vaccination, no ride/no entry” policy in a federal edict issued on January 11.

“All concerned attached agencies and sectoral offices of DOTr are directed to ensure that operators of public transportation shall allow access or issue tickets only to ‘fully vaccinated persons,’” the statement read.

The transportation department advised Metro Manila transit staff to identify a “fully vaccinated” person by his or her “physical or digital copies of an LGU (local government unit)-issued vaccine card, or any IATF-prescribed document, with a valid government issued ID with picture and address.”

“IATF” is the initialism used for the Philippines’ Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Unvaccinated people are forbidden from using public transport across Metro Manila as long as the region remains under a “COVID-19 Alert Level 3 level or higher,” the Philippine Department of Transportation stipulated on January 11. Metro Manila’s pandemic task force placed the national capital region — home to nearly 13 million residents — under a “level 3” alert for the Chinese coronavirus on January 3, with the status expected to remain in place through at least January 15. The Philippines’ IATF will determine when and if Metro Manila’s coronavirus alert level changes in the near future, the nation’s transportation department said Tuesday.

“[I]t’s high time to police those who are unvaccinated and to regulate their movements,” Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso told reporters on January 12 when asked about the new public transport ban for the unvaccinated. Mayor Isko Moreno, who is running for the Philippine presidency in an upcoming general election in May, made the remark while attending the opening of a Chinese coronavirus vaccination site in Manila city.

The Philippine federal government’s “level 3” alert system forces a community to lower capacity limits at all churches, parks, restaurants, and beauty salons.

“In-person classes and contact sports are suspended,” Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman, Karlo Nograles, told reporters of Metro Manila’s level 3 restrictions on December 31, 2021, shortly before they came into effect.

“[L]ocalized lockdowns targeting specific buildings, streets, and neighborhoods will also be enforced,” Nograles said at the time.

A council of Metro Manila mayors passed a resolution on January 3 “urging the passage of local ordinances prohibiting unvaccinated individuals from going outside their residences, except for essential trips,” the Philippine Inquirer reported on January 4.

The resolution encouraged council members to “bar the unvaccinated from indoor and outdoor dining at restaurants and other food establishments, and from leisure or social trips to malls, hotels, sports, and other similar facilities.”

The mandate, which has since come into effect, additionally prohibits unvaccinated Metro Manila residents from “domestic travel via public land, sea and air transportation, except to buy essential goods and services such as food and water, for work or medical and health reasons,” according to the Inquirer‘s January 4 report.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte expressed support for the movement restrictions imposed on Metro Manila’s unvaccinated population in a January 6 speech.

“Duterte in an televised address to the nation said he was asking community leaders to look for unvaccinated people and make sure they were confined to their homes,” Channel News Asia (CNA) reported.

“If he refuses, if he goes out his house and goes around the community, he can be restrained. If he refuses, the [police] captain is empowered now to arrest recalcitrant persons,” Duterte warned.

President Duterte infamously ordered Metro Manila police to shoot and kill people found violating strict stay-at-home orders in place in Metro Manila in April 2020 as part of a months-long coronavirus lockdown.

Elizabeth Warren Thinks Biden Can Save His Imploding Presidency By Cancelling Student Loan Debt (VIDEO)

Biden’s presidency is falling apart but Elizabeth Warren thinks she sees a way for him to save himself.

According to Warren, all Biden has to do is issue an executive order cancelling federal student loan debt.

She apparently doesn’t believe taxpayers have been squeezed enough yet.

Warrn made the comments on CBS News.

TRENDING: Fauci Warns There Are Five Stages in a Pandemic… and We Are Still in the First Stage

The Daily Wire reports:

“All the polls are very, very bad, right?” Dokoupil continued. ” I mean, the — Gallup had a poll that showed a preference nationally for Republicans at a five-point margin over Democrats. You started with the insurrection and a nine-point advantage. In the fourth quarter, it was a five-point margin for Republicans. So something is not right here. Something that you think could change the game for President Biden is with the stroke of a pen he could cancel student loan debt federally,”

“Yes,” Warren agreed.

“Why do you think that would make such a difference?”…

“It would affect about 43 million Americans. And keep in mind, for the people who are dealing with student loan debt, about 40% of them do not have college diplomas. These are people who did what we want them to do as Americans. They tried. But they had babies, they were working three jobs, they moved and they didn’t make it, so now they’re dealing with student loan debt on what a high school grad makes,” she said.

Why stop at student loans? What about car loans?

How about people who took out car loans they couldn’t afford because “they did what we wanted them to do as Americans. They tried. But, they had babies, they moved…”

Should their car loans also be forgiven and passed on to tax payers?

Warren is crazy. People who paid off their student loans would be furious.

Parents Outraged Over Photo of Teacher Taping Mask to Child’s Face

Published

Parents in the North Penn School District expressed outrage after a photo emerged showing a teacher forcibly taping a mask to a child’s face.

The school district confirmed that the incident happened after the photo went viral.

“Pro-mask or anti-mask, I hope we can all agree that taping masks to children’s faces crosses the LINE,” said a Facebook post by North Penn Stronger Together. “This was not a joke for the child or the parents.”

The district issued a swift apology, but refused to divulge the identity of the teacher in question.

The photo “taken in one of our classrooms last week and circulating on social media does not represent the universal values that the North Penn School District strives to instill in both our students and staff,” says the statement.

“After an immediate investigation, it was determined that while the incident was isolated and no malice was intended, the actions of the teacher were entirely inappropriate and unacceptable, no matter the context,” the statement read. “We understand that the act of taping a mask to a student’s face is concerning to many and apologize that it occurred.”

Parents are demanding that the district take immediate disciplinary action against the teacher.

“State authorities have no right to require masks after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overruled the governor’s school mask mandate, but some school districts were authorized to keep the mandate,” reports Sputnik.

This is by no means an isolated incident.

As we highlighted last October, teachers at a Colorado Springs middle school forced children to tape masks to their face in what was described as an act of “child abuse.”

THREAD: Forcing kids to tape masks to their faces is CHILD ABUSE. It’s happening in my backyard in Colorado Springs, according to one family. I spoke this morning with Stephanie M., mother of Rylee, a 6th grader at Chinook Trail Middle School in District 20, pictured here.

Children are also routinely forced to sit outside in the freezing cold for ‘snack and mask’ breaks.

Experts have warned that forcing children to wear face masks impairs learning and cognitive development.

As we previously highlighted, a study found that mean IQ scores of young children born during the pandemic have tumbled by as much as 22 points while verbal, motor and cognitive performance have all suffered as a result of lockdown and mask mandates.

A UK government investigation found that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”

Former White House Physician Demands Biden Take Cognitive Test After Weird Presser Breakdown

Published

on

former-white-house-physician-demands-biden-take-cognitive-test-after-weird-presser-breakdown

The former White House physician Ronny Jackson reacted to Joe Biden displaying more brain freeze during his second press conference in office Wednesday, demanding that the president immediately undergo a cognitive test.

Biden essentially ignored a question from a reporter about why so many Americans believe he is in cognitive decline, replying “I have no idea.”

Just minutes after that Biden displayed more bizarre brain freeze and painful loss of his train of thought.

That display prompted Jackson, the former physician for presidents Obama and Trump, to take to social media:

BIDEN JUST IGNORED A QUESTION ABOUT HIS COGNITIVE DECLINE! Something is WRONG with him. This man IS NOT qualified to be President!! I am demanding he have a cognitive test NOW. There’s too much on the line, we need to know!

— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) January 19, 2022

Biden’s “press conference” is disturbing and bizarre. He’s totally disconnected from reality. He has NO IDEA what’s going on. It’s no surprise he’s been kept locked away in the basement. This is an EMBARRASSMENT.

— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) January 19, 2022

Jackson has repeatedly called for Biden to undergo an exam following regular concerning displays.

The doctor recently asserted that that the reason Biden has avoided cognitive exams is because he would have “failed miserably,” and his team “didn’t do it because they know, if they do it, you don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to.”

Why didn’t Biden have a cognitive exam? His “health summary” was 6 pages of NOTHING. Biden’s lost, he’s confused, and this White House is doing everything they can to HIDE his obvious cognitive decline. They can’t keep hiding this forever. The American people aren’t buying it! pic.twitter.com/0mjrXc3sCz
