TEDDY DANIELS (GUEST): If you’ve had that conversation with your doctor and you feel a vaccine is the best route for you, go for it, cool. But for those that don’t that’s also cool, you know, let people live their lives.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Wait, but shouldn’t we kill people who don’t want to get the vaccine?
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department warned judges Monday that at least 17 Capitol riot defendants may be “effectively without counsel” after the prominent right-wing attorney who represents them was reportedly hospitalized in potentially serious condition.
In a filing Monday, the DOJ said attorney John Pierce, of the California-based firm Pierce Bainbridge, had been out of contact and had missed multiple court hearings since August 23. An associate, Ryan Marshall, who has been appearing in Pierce’s place told a judge last week he believed Pierce was “ill with COVID-19, on a ventilator, and unresponsive,” according to the DOJ. The agency notes another of Pierce’s associates allegedly told NPR he was not on a ventilator, however, and claimed he was suffering from dehydration and exhaustion.
LEE COUNTY, Fla. – The Lee County School District will now require masks for teachers and students, eliminating the opt-out form.
The school superintendent made the announcement Monday. The new COVID-19 protocol will go into effect for 30 days and will start on Sept. 1.
School officials said if students or staff don’t wear masks, they will follow the same process used last year as well as provide options for families if this is an ongoing issue. There could be disciplinary actions depending on the situation. Employees will have progressive discipline that will be addressed if they don’t follow the mandate.
There will be a medical opt-out for the mask mandate, Lee school officials confirmed. A letter on this is expected to go out to parents Tuesday after more discussion.
Physical fights were seen being broken up outside of the district’s headquarters after the mask mandate was announced.
