British PM Boris Johnson has imposed tougher COVID-19 restrictions in England, ordering people to work from home, wear masks in public places and use vaccine passes to slow the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant.

Undermined by accusations that his staff partied at Downing Street during a Christmas lockdown last year, Johnson said on Wednesday that Omicron was spreading rapidly and he had no choice but to move to “Plan B” while a vaccine booster programme rolls out.

While still a long way from the full lockdowns imposed earlier in the pandemic, the new measures were described as a “hammer blow” for city centre restaurants, cafes and shops that are desperate for Christmas trade to rebuild their finances.

Many lawmakers in Johnson’s own party are also angry with the new restrictions, fearing the effect they will have after the economy shrank by a historic 10 percent last year.

“While the picture may get better, and I sincerely hope that it will, we know that the remorseless logic of exponential growth could lead to a big rise in hospitalisations and therefore, sadly, in deaths,” Johnson told a news conference.

Sterling fell sharply when news first emerged on Wednesday that “Plan B” measures were imminent and investors pared back their bets on a Bank of England interest rate increase next week.

Johnson, who lifted most COVID restrictions in England in July following a rapid vaccine rollout, had pledged to navigate the winter without resorting to a fourth COVID-19 lockdown, but had kept a so-called “Plan B” in reserve.

Part of those measures, such as reintroducing masks on public transport and in shops, had already been brought in, but on Wednesday, Johnson said people should also now work from home.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said Wednesday that people might need a fourth Covid-19 shot sooner than expected after preliminary research shows the new omicron variant can undermine protective antibodies generated by the vaccine the company developed with BioNTech.

Pfizer and BioNTech released results from an initial lab study Wednesday morning that showed a third shot is effective at fighting the omicron variant, while the initial two-dose vaccination series dropped significantly in its ability to protect against the new strain. However, the two-dose series likely still offers protection against getting severely sick from omicron, the companies said.

Bourla noted that a preliminary study by the company was based on a synthetic, lab-created copy of the variant and more data is needed from tests against the real virus. Those real-world results will be more accurate and are expected in the next two weeks, the Pfizer CEO said.

“When we see real-world data, will determine if the omicron is well covered by the third dose and for how long. And the second point, I think we will need a fourth dose,” Bourla told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

Bourla previously projected that a fourth shot would be needed 12 months after the third dose. “With omicron we need to wait and see because we have very little information. We may need it faster,” he said.

Prices will continue to climb and U.S. officials are finally admitting it, saying this week that inflation can no longer be categorized as short-term.

Both Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in interviews this week that it’s time to retire the term “transitory” when discussing the current U.S. inflation trends.

“We tend to use [transitory] to mean that it won’t leave a permanent mark in the form of higher inflation,” Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said during a congressional hearing on Tuesday. “I think it’s probably a good time to retire that word and try to explain more clearly what we mean.”

He added that while it’s difficult to predict how long the effects of supply chain issues will linger, it appears that “factors pushing inflation upward will linger well into next year.”

“I am ready to retire the word transitory,” Yellen echoed in an interview with Reuters on Thursday. “I can agree that that hasn’t been an apt description of what we are dealing with.”

The cost of goods and services in October jumped 6.2% over the past year, with food prices up 5.3% over the last year and energy shooting up a whopping 30%, according to the latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report. That means overall inflation is running well above the Fed’s 2% goal—and has been for a while. The Consumer Price Index has been ticking up month after month since May 2020.

anon, when did Biden take office?

Because if your argument is that the "first few months" of his Presidency had the same rate as Trump's one, I have some news for you.
>Because if your argument is that the "first few months" of his Presidency had the same rate as Trump's one, I have some news for you.
... That he's right and large inflation didn't occur until March 2021? Even during April to July of 2020 inflation was less than a percent
So what you're trying to say is that we didn't start experiencing inflation until 3 months into a Biden presidency?
Yeah I'd agree with that.
I'd also like to add that we didn't start experiencing extreme inflation until immediately following the passage of Biden stimulus bill in March 2021, every subsequent month after that immediately experienced extreme inflation
Anon, inflation doesn't happen overnight. Policy influences don't really show effects on the economy until months afterward, and inflation takes even longer.

Biden passing another stimulus literally cannot result in inflation overnight.


Students at Arizona State University took part in a campus protest Wednesday against Kyle Rittenhouse's status as a student even after it was revealed that he was no longer enrolled as an online student.

Dozens of participants in the event organized by liberal groups chanted "killer Kyle off our campus," "Lock him up," or "ASU, shame on you."

They were met by counterprotesters who yelled, "Let's go Kyle." Among the other chants by conservative-leaning groups such as College Republicans United that could be heard in videos posted online were, "Let's go Brandon," which has become a euphemism for "F*** Joe Biden."

President Joe Biden's net approval rating hit a new low in the latest Morning consult poll

President Joe Biden's net approval rating hit a new low in the latest Morning Consult poll, even as he tours the nation promoting recent legislative victories. In this photo, Biden delivers remarks at the White House on December 01, 2021.
President Joe Biden's net approval rating among registered voters has hit a new low, according to the latest poll from Morning Consult.

The survey, released Thursday, found 45 percent of registered voters approved of Biden's job performance, while 52 percent of respondents disapproved. The president's poll numbers have been in gradual decline since the chaotic military withdrawal from Afghanistan in August.

The findings show little movement among voters even as Biden is on the road promoting his domestic agenda and recent legislative victories.

Last month, Congress passed a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill after months of negotiation. The legislation includes $550 billion of new investments in roads, bridges, mass transportation, airports, trains and more over the next five years. Billions of dollars will also be delivered to improve broadband internet, the electric grid and water systems

>The problem with the "money machine go brrrr" theory is that even countries which don't print money are being hit by horrible inflation.
It's almost as if the USD is a global reserve currency, and when the money printer goes brrr every country that relies on the Petro dollar feels it>>974095
The problem is that Americans simply aren't buying enough, which is why we need another stimulus for everyone, so that we can jumpstart the economy
>I'm implying this inflation is caused by rapidly increasing the volume of cash in circulation by 20-25% in a single year
Don't forget the massive drop in production during the same time period. Supply of money goes up while the production backing it plummets. Who'd have thought that inflation would happen due to that? It's almost like it's basic economics and one of the reasons why having people work is far more important than handing out "free" money.

The creepy bribe taker seen here asking his master Soros for instructions was woken from his nap and informed of the latest setback.

Biden is a failure. Always has been, from a long long of failures
Nazi socialists are literally imploding over the recent negative news from their little fuhrer Adolf Biden.
Nazi socialists have been seen goose step marching around their trailer parks at a frantic pace attempting to calm down after receiving word that their policies have resulted in hyper inflation, and when their leader isn't falling up stairs or crapping his pants, he's falling asleep.


WASHINGTON, D.C.—A group of white supremacists stormed through downtown Washington, D.C. on Saturday evening, bearing American flags and mildly menacing plastic shields while marching to the beat of a snare drum down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. But after chanting aggressively about their plans to “reclaim America,” their intended show of force stalled spectacularly when they lost their ride.

While the group had marched through the city with threatening chants about their plan to “reclaim America,” by the end of the night it was not even clear how they intended to reclaim their U-Haul.

The rally by more than 100 members of the “Patriot Front” group, held just blocks from the White House, sparked fear among many bystanders and immediately attracted the attention of law enforcement, who shadowed the group to forestall any conflict.

Members wore a uniform: white gaiters, sunglasses, blue jackets, khaki pants, and brown boots and hats. Some donned plastic shinguards, seeming to anticipate violence.

As Patriot Front’s leader Thomas Rousseau spoke beside the Capitol reflecting pool, bystanders booed. Asked about the reason for the march, Rousseau said, “Our demonstrations are an exhibition of our unified capability to organize, to show our strength—not as brawlers or public nuisances, but as men capable of illustrating a message and seeking an America that more closely resembles the interests of its true people.”

At the end of the night, the march ended in a logistical anti-climax. No arrests were made at the Arlington Memorial Bridge, where the demonstration wound down, and D.C. police Lt. Jason Bagshaw told The Daily Beast that the cops, some in riot gear, were on the scene simply “waiting for people to leave.”

>A few, normally no more than one, FBI agents.
How would you know that? The intelligence agencies themselves don't know about their own redundancies, that's how they became redundant in the first place. It would make sense that DHS, FBI, and NSA would have overlapping jurisdiction, and not have full awareness of eachother's involvement in any given organization.
>The intelligence agencies themselves don't know about their own redundancies
That was true in like the 90s...but your woeful ignorance of what the “jurisdictions” are basically invalidates your point from the start.
Three letter agencies have access to things like siprnet and intellipedia.
Even though their operations are siloed, their information is not that way anymore
Fair enough, the redundancy as an accident bit was a bad point, but that still doesn't explain how you would know that ATF and FBI wouldn't both keep informants as intentional redundancy? Maybe if you have time you can explain the venn diagram in jurisdictions here, because I think it's vague intentionally for that exact reason.

I fear this will be used as a propaganda piece by incels who want to claim that false rape accusations are a thing.
>For eight days, author Alice Sebold remained quiet about the exoneration last week of the man convicted of raping her in 1981. Sebold's 1999 memoir "Lucky," which describes in searing detail the attack in Syracuse, N.Y., when she was a college freshman, propelled her into a successful career as a novelist. She would go on to write "The Lovely Bones," which sold millions of copies and was made into a 2009 film directed by Peter Jackson.

>But after Anthony Broadwater spent 16 years in prison and decades struggling to move forward while tethered to the state's sex offender registry, a New York Supreme Court judge freed him from the conviction.

>On Tuesday, Sebold broke her silence. In a statement first released to the Associated Press and later posted on Medium, the author apologized directly to Broadwater, 61, but cast equal blame on "our flawed legal system."

>"I deeply regret what you have been through," Sebold wrote to Broadwater. "I am sorry most of all for the fact that the life you could have led was unjustly robbed from you, and I know that no apology can change what happened to you and never will."

>"I will remain sorry for the rest of my life that while pursuing justice through the legal system, my own misfortune resulted in Mr. Broadwater's unfair conviction," she continued.

>Soon after the release, Broadwater's lawyer told Syracuse.com that his client was moved to tears by Sebold's words.

>"It comes sincerely from her heart," Broadwater said in an interview with the news site. "She knowingly admits what happened. I accept her apology."

jesus christ what a shitshow
So she was raped and the cops did a shit job once again. Now these assholes can’t stop talking about what she “did” and how this proves not only that she was a liar and not raped but that all rape cases are lies.

But no comments about the shit job that police do every day and the countless people they wrongly convict because it is easier and cops are lazy shits.

Hmm, I wonder what the bias of all these asshole men is?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — With more than two dozen states poised to ban abortion if the U.S. Supreme Court gives them the OK next year, California clinics and their allies in the state Legislature on Wednesday revealed a plan to make the state a “sanctuary” for those seeking reproductive care, including possibly paying for travel, lodging and procedures for people from other states.

The California Future of Abortion Council, made up of more than 40 abortion providers and advocacy groups, released a list of 45 recommendations for the state to consider if the high court overturns Roe v. Wade — the 48-year-old decision that forbids states from outlawing abortion.

The recommendations are not just a liberal fantasy. Some of the state’s most important policymakers helped write them, including Toni Atkins, the San Diego Democrat who leads the state Senate and attended multiple meetings.

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom started the group himself and in an interview last week with The Associated Press said some of the report’s details will be included in his budget proposal in January.

“We’ll be a sanctuary,” Newsom said, adding he’s aware patients will likely travel to California from other states to seek abortions. “We are looking at ways to support that inevitability and looking at ways to expand our protections.”

I'm upset abortion will be illegal because I hate niggers and spics, and they're the ones that abort at higher rates.
As a Texan, I consider it my duty to jail womans who cross state lines to commit genocide.
I dont support getting rid of it because it will produce more black people in a world that is already majority black and overrun with them (as democrats say to white people, i dont meant to abolish black people just blackness hurrr durrr), but i do like the scare it puts into retarded democrat voters so they may fuck off already and go back into their blue crime ridden high tax shitholes.

The statue was the focus of a deadly white nationalist rally in 2017. A local African American heritage center plans to turn it into a new piece of public art.

The City Council of Charlottesville, Va., voted on Tuesday to donate a statue of Robert E. Lee to an African American heritage center that plans to melt the bronze monument, the focus of a deadly white nationalist rally in 2017, into material for a new piece of public art.

The 4-0 vote by the council followed years of debate over the fate of the statue. Four years ago, a plan to remove the statue drew scores of white nationalists to Charlottesville for a “Unite the Right” rally that led to violence, including the killing of a counterprotester by an Ohio man who plowed a car into a crowd.

The statue’s fate was left to a prolonged fight in court that concluded in April, when Virginia’s Supreme Court ruled that the city could take down two statues of Confederate generals, including the Lee monument. Over the summer, workers hoisted it off its granite base.

WASHINGTON (AP) — California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, who was one of former President Donald Trump’s most ardent loyalists in Congress, is leaving the House at the end of this year to join Trump’s fledgling media company.

A statement Monday from the Trump Media & Technology group said Nunes would serve as chief executive officer, beginning in January 2022. The company is preparing to launch a social media platform intended to rival competitors, including Twitter, which blocked Trump’s account in January following the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol.

In June, Facebook suspended Trump’s accounts for two years, following a finding that he stoked violence ahead of the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great,” Trump said in a statement.

Nunes’ decision comes at a time when his political future in California appeared in possible jeopardy — draft maps released in the once-a-decade realignment of congressional districts suggested he would face a challenging reelection in the 2022 midterms. Those maps will not be finalized until later this month.

Nunes, 48, said in a statement: “The time has come to reopen the Internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and expression without censorship. The United States of America made the dream of the Internet a reality and it will be an American company that restores the dream.”

Trump’s decision to select one of his most pugilistic defenders to oversee his new media group — instead of a seasoned business leader — makes clear that he intends to use the company for political benefit as much as for profit.
