It’s a stark example of what experts warn could be a coming deluge of false or misleading information related to the one-shot vaccine.
In the case of the post by An0maly, a Facebook representative said the company has taken action against previous posts of his that have broken the social media platform’s rules.

President Biden on Tuesday turned down the latest offer on an infrastructure deal from Senate Republicans, moving the debate on one of the president’s chief domestic priorities into a new phase. Biden put the kibosh on current negotiations after informing Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., that “the latest offer from her group did not, in his view, meet the essential needs of our country to restore our roads and bridges, prepare us for our clean energy future, and create jobs,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.
Capito said the group of GOP senators offered a $1 trillion package that the president was willing to accept, but that the issue of how to pay for the compromise proposal was not something on which the two sides could agree.
“In our discussions with the president, he himself made it clear that he was willing to accept an offer around $1 trillion, that baseline spending would and could be included, and that a plan could stretch over an 8-year period of time,” Capito said in a written statement. “The president also understood one of our red lines, which was not undoing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which has helped so many Americans. Our latest offer, coupled with legislation the Senate is expected to pass today, would have exceeded the president’s threshold.” (Later Tuesday, the Senate passed a bipartisan bill to boost U.S. scientific research and competitiveness.)

Rivers Solomon’s Sorrowland tells a tale of how the horrors inflicted upon Black Americans warp and change us. However, an overreliance on atmospherics at the expense of basic building blocks weakens the overall story and themes. I dove into Sorrowland ready to be enraptured by it. I’m drawn to gothic horror narratives. I spend an […]
