Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

Trump’s Covid Response Casts a Long Shadow
Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly the decision to implement widespread societal disruptions in March 2020, continues to impact his political legacy. This decision, influenced by advisors, Big Pharma, and international organizations, marked a significant shift from Trump’s initial stance. The article argues that Trump’s pandemic response, including the rapid development of vaccines through Operation Warp Speed, did not achieve its public health goals, as the vaccines did not prevent transmission or infection as hoped. The piece suggests that Trump’s reluctance to admit to a mistake regarding the pandemic response complicates his political future. It also highlights the broader political reluctance to critically examine the pandemic response, suggesting a missed opportunity for accountability and learning from the crisis.

The National Citizens Inquiry is a citizen-led and citizen-funded effort to examine Canada’s response to COVID-19.

The NCI’s purpose is to listen, to learn, and to recommend. What went right? What went wrong? How can Canadians and our governments react to national crises in the future in a manner that balances the interests, needs and rights of all members of our society?

The NCI is volunteer run and completely independent of government.

Why an Inquiry?

During the pandemic, governments at all levels made decisions that affected the lives of almost every Canadian. The impacts of these decisions were unprecedented. They affected our lives, families, businesses, and communities, in significant and long-lasting ways. They affected our physical and mental health, civil liberties and fundamental freedoms, jobs and livelihoods, and overall social and economic well-being.

Could COVID-19 have been handled differently? Many Canadians believe so, and many believe these circumstances demand a comprehensive, transparent, objective and independent inquiry into how governments responded over the past three years.

For this reason, a group of concerned citizens formed the National Citizens Inquiry—to ask hard questions, hear from those affected, and learn how to do better in future.

What has happened so far?

In spring 2023, the NCI held 24 days of hearings from Truro to Vancouver, where commissioners heard testimony from over 300 witnesses. On November 28, 2023, the NCI released the Commissioners’ final report with their recommendations on what—if anything—could be done differently or better should Canada experience another emergency. The NCI encourages everyone to read the report and act on its recommendations.

The Real Dr. Paul Offit Is Back!
Dr. Paul Offit, a prominent figure in vaccine advocacy, has recently criticized the COVID-19 vaccine mandates, marking a significant departure from his previous positions. Offit, known for his support of vaccines, expressed concerns over the mandates and the lack of transparency and accountability from vaccine manufacturers and public health officials. This stance has sparked discussions within the public health community, with some viewing it as a welcome call for greater scrutiny and others seeing it as a contradiction of his earlier advocacy. The article explores Offit’s influence on vaccine policy and the implications of his recent statements for the ongoing debate over COVID-19 vaccination strategies and public health decision-making.

Hour 2

New York’s Proposed Minor Consent Law ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Misleading,’ Critics Say
A proposed law in New York allowing minors to consent to vaccination without parental approval has drawn criticism for potentially undermining parental rights and misleading the public about vaccine safety and efficacy. Critics argue that the law could lead to increased health risks for children and erode trust in medical decision-making. The debate highlights the tension between public health goals and individual rights, with opponents calling for a more cautious approach to vaccine policy that respects parental involvement in children’s healthcare decisions.

Alaska confirms first fatal case of Alaskapox
Alaska has reported its first fatal case of Alaskapox, a rare viral disease, raising concerns about emerging infectious diseases and their management. The case underscores the challenges faced by public health officials in responding to new health threats and the importance of surveillance and research to understand and mitigate the risks of lesser-known diseases. The incident highlights the ongoing need for public health preparedness and the potential implications of emerging pathogens on community health.

Oregon Confirmed a Human Case of the Bubonic Plague. It Was Likely Caused by a Cat
Oregon reported its first human case of the bubonic plague in eight years, likely transmitted by a cat. Health officials in Deschutes County have treated the individual and contacted all close contacts for preventive medication. The disease, known for its historical devastation, is now treatable with antibiotics if addressed early. The plague is typically spread through flea bites or contact with infected animals, with human-to-human transmission being rare. This case underscores the ongoing risk of plague in the U.S., particularly in rural Western regions, and highlights the importance of preventive measures against flea and rodent exposure.

Amendment to ban vaccine mandates on airline flights passes US Senate committee
A U.S. Senate committee passed an amendment sponsored by Missouri Senator Eric Schmitt to ban COVID-19 vaccine mandates for airline passengers. The amendment, part of the FAA reauthorization bill, aims to prevent discrimination based on vaccine status and protect passengers’ privacy regarding medical information. Schmitt criticized the Biden Administration’s “draconian vaccine mandates,” asserting they have no place in current society. The bill now moves to the full Senate for consideration, signaling a significant legislative effort to address vaccine mandate controversies in air travel.

Think WHO Shouldn’t Make Decisions About Your Health? You Must Be a Conspiracy Theorist
Negotiations over the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Health Regulations and a proposed “pandemic treaty” are raising concerns about medical ethics and fundamental rights. Critics argue that the WHO’s plan, which seeks to centralize decision-making during health emergencies, undermines individual autonomy and physician-patient decision-making. The negotiations, perceived as undemocratic, have sparked debate about the WHO’s authority and the potential for increased authoritarian control in future health crises. Critics of the plan, often labeled as conspiracy theorists, emphasize the need for transparency and respect for individual rights in global health governance.
