Democrats Spreading COVID-19 Like Mad!; Biden Administration Extends Federal Transportation Mask Mandate Again, and other C-Virus related stories

Democrats spreading COVID-19 like mad!:
In Washington, truth is stranger than fiction
Democrats across the country were by far the fiercest when it came to mandates during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, enacting draconian lockdown rules and ordering everyone to wear masks (although many liberals were quickly caught out saying one thing and doing exactly the opposite).
But when the spike of the omicron variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 faded, and the even-weaker BA.2 strain fizzling, Democrats decided it was time to party.
A couple Saturdays ago, high-profile journalists gathered with elite politicians — Cabinet members, top lawmakers from the House and Senate, along with mayors and high-level members of the Democratic Party — for a night of debauchery. The white-tie event, called the Gridiron dinner, invites some 600 people to wine and dine while they revel in comedy routines and songs performed by attendees (yes, it’s all as cringe-worthy as it sounds).
At the event — where the motto is “Singe but don’t burn” — those who dropped by night of frivolity got burned big time. By this past Saturday, at least 72 attendees have tested positive for the virus.
Gridiron Club President Tom DeFrank said Saturday that at least 67 attendees of the dinner had tested positive. In addition, five more confirmed cases were announced on Sunday. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden Administration Extends Federal Transportation Mask Mandate Again:
The Biden administration on Wednesday extended the federal transportation mandate for two weeks, the Associated Press reported.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will continue to force passengers to mask on airplanes, trains, and at transportation hubs while the agency monitors the Chinese coronavirus.
The initial face mask mandate for air travel went into effect on February 1, 2021, with an expiration date of May 11, 2021. But it was extended through September 13, 2021, and then to January 18, 2022. On March 18, 2020, it was extended to April 18.
Many airline CEO’s, along with many congressional Republicans, had hoped the Biden administration would allow citizens to fly without face coverings, citing the high air quality in aircraft. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News that mask mandates “are all about submission.” --->READ MORE HERE
