Wisconsin health department halts Johnson & Johnson vaccine after 'extremely rare' but severe side effects reported
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is telling vaccine providers not to administer the Johnson & Johnson shot while federal health authorities investigate an extremely rare but severe blood-clotting reaction.
Providers should keep the vaccine until a federal review has been completed, DHS secretary-designee Karen Timberlake said in a Tuesday statement.
Earlier Tuesday, federal health officials recommended an immediate halt to injections of the single-dose vaccine after six people in the U.S. developed a blood-clotting condition known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis within two weeks of being vaccinated.
One woman died and one has been hospitalized in critical condition, The New York Times reported. All six cases were women between the ages of 18 and 48.
The adverse effects "appear to be extremely rare," according to a joint statement issued by leaders at the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control. The recommended pause was issued "out of an abundance of caution," they said.
MADISON - Federal authorities have signed off on a deal that will preserve about $70 million a month in federal aid to provide food to low-income families in Wisconsin.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture told officials Tuesday that families in Wisconsin would continue to receive assistance after reaching an agreement with the administration of Democratic Gov. Tony Evers.
The agreement means about 400,000 households will continue to receive extra aid in May that they were at risk of losing because of a recent court decision.
"More than $70 million a month means we can get support to a lot of folks across our state who are still struggling in the midst of a pandemic and need help putting food on the table," Evers said in a statement.
Details of the arrangement emerged shortly after Assembly Speaker Robin Vos offered a plan to restore funding for the program that was all but certain to fail because it included provisions opposed by Democrats.
WATCH protesters torch police union building as anger over Daunte Wright’s killing fuels growing unrest in Portland

Around 100 demonstrators on Tuesday night gathered at a nearby park before marching to the Portland Police Associate (PPA) building, the city’s police force said.
Protesters launched fireworks and used vehicles to block adjacent roads. Portland police issued numerous warnings over a loudspeaker telling the crowd that they needed to allow traffic to move through.
Instead, the situation escalated. According to Portland police, the protesters lit a fire at the back of the union office, possibly in a garbage can. Other members of the group were seen using accelerants on a door as flames began to engulf part of the building.
Videos posted to social media show an inferno raging in front of the entrance to the building as officers arrived at the scene.
Police declared a riot and ordered the crowd to disperse. At least one arrest was made.
The blaze was later extinguished by the city’s fire department.
The chaos was part of a “direct action” event demanding justice for Wright, who was shot by Minneapolis police during a traffic stop and later died. On Monday night, demonstrators clashed with officers outside of a police station in Portland after a vigil for the 20-year-old descended into violence. Police said demonstrators threw bottles, rocks, and fireworks at the officers as they attempted to break into the building.
The Minnesota police officer who shot and killed a Black man Sunday during a traffic stop, along with the Police Chief who supervised her and the department, have both resigned Tuesday after nights of rioting and looting rocked their community in the wake of the state's latest officer-involved shooting.
I know my coverage of the aftermath of the Epic Showdown between Good Boy and Cunt Patrol is lacking today.
But I mean – you know where to find videos of riots. I’ll try to post them, with commentary, as this situation develops. But 85% of the internet is on riot patrol.
What I did do was write a witty satire piece about Kamala Harris’ comments on it – because that is important.
Rashida Tlaib’s comment, which is along the same lines as Harris’ but much more extreme, is also important.
Brooklyn Center, MN – After the police killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright during a vehicle stop in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center on Sunday afternoon, hundreds gathered near 63rd Avenue North and Lee Avenue North calling for justice.

Marijuana legalization is sweeping states from Virginia to New Mexico. The writing is on the wall.

The US is nearing a tipping point of sorts on marijuana legalization: Almost half the country — about 43 percent of the population — now lives in a state where marijuana is legal to consume just for fun.
Burlington Area School District officials failed to report, investigate and respond to racist incidents for years, the state Department of Public Instruction has found, and ordered district officials to address its “racially hostile environment.”
It took years of advocacy by Darnisha Garbade, a parent of two former Burlington students, to get to this point, while she repeatedly hit dead-ends with district officials.
"I asked, I begged, I cried and pleaded for help on many occasions to many of Burlington’s leaders but was treated as if I was the problem, instead of racism being the problem," Garbade said in a news conference Monday. “I consistently spoke the truth, and even provided evidence when I wasn’t believed. And yet, I still wasn’t believed."
Steve Plank, superintendent of the Burlington Area School District, did not acknowledge any wrongdoing but said he regrets that anyone felt discriminated against and will comply with the order.

Every single day!
Remember, the only thing you can be certain is false is what the mainstream media says is true. AC points out that the curious thing about DMX's death isn't that there were what appear to have been false claims made about him overdosing, but rather, the way the false narrative was instantly pushed worldwide.
Family member confirms rapper DMX was given the Covid vaccine days before his lethal heart attack, and say the heart attack that led to his death was not from a drug overdose. Even more amazing to me than the fact they killed him with their Umbrella Corporation vaccine, is the fact the Cabal propaganda machine, that is mainstream media reporters, immediately knew he had died from the vaccine, and knew they had to cover it up, and manufactured the drug overdose cover story (sullying his name in death, in the process, to save their mass experiment on the human race). Otherwise, if the story just came in he died from a heart attack, a clueless reporter would report he died from a heart attack alone, and then they’d have waited for more information. Ask yourself, how did the media know immediately that he was vaccinated, the heart attack was due to it, and they needed a made up cover story?
It's getting harder and harder for the media to deny the adverse effects of the not-vaccine, but that doesn't mean they won't try.
