Heidi Harris Show Podcast #219: Pro Publica says Vegas is “Gambling with lives”. Is that true?

A recent column from Marshall Allen in Pro Publica says” Cellphone data shows how Las Vegas is ‘Gambling with lives’ across the country”. Experts analyzed cell phone data to see where people went who had been in Vegas, and they had traveled to 49 states in four days. These so-called “experts” used phrases like casinos are a “likely hotbed” or that Vegas “could be fueling” the pandemic. Others said it’s “almost certain” that casinos are a feeding ground for Covid-19. So is WalMart!!!!

How irresponsible can you be? Hundreds of thousands of people in Vegas are unemployed because someone who isn’t even going out might die. Enough already with the lies, innuendo, and mischaracterization of “facts”. You have no proof that people are more at risk in casinos than other public places, so stop lying for a headline! Lives are at stake here. The lives of business owners and people who need to leave their houses in order to keep them. This article included zero facts, but the headline is likely to scare some people into postponing a trip to Vegas, when so many people need to feed their families. Truly despicable.

Getting that “free” vaccine may cost you more than you realize

There’s more and more talk of “tracking” people who’ve had Covid-19, had the vaccine, or haven’t had either one, through biometrics.

This is a great opportunity for those who want to track our health and possibly our movements, to be able to justify it under the guise of what’s best for “public health”. You may not care about what happens in Third World countries, or the feasibility of tracking people with no access to clean water, much less the Internet, but Immunity Passports may be the next requirement for travel.

So much for ever seeing Israel! And I really wanted to go, too.

Anyone who objects to getting a rushed-to-market vaccine for Covid “violates the social contract”??

Are they serious? A couple of medical “experts” from Case Western University submitted an editorial to USA Today where they clearly outlined their vision for the vaccine that isn’t even here yet. Getting the rushed-to-market vaccine is “patriotic”, and religious objections will NOT be allowed. “Personal preference” objections violate the “social contract”. I see.

This would seem outrageous and impossible to enforce, if it weren’t for the implications of not being allowed to go certain places or hold a job if you aren’t vaccinated. Others have called for that, too.

These clowns want people to carry “immunization cards” to prove they’ve been vaccinated. For what, a virus strain that will go away and be replaced by another one in a few years?

And what about people like me, who’ve already had Covid? We’re off the hook, right?

Who will be forced to get the jab first? Medical professionals? First responders? TEACHERS? Hairdressers? Anyone who works in hospitality, like CASINO and CRUISE SHIP workers? Serious questions we need to be asking.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #203: What’s happening with unemployment in Nevada?

In fairness to the state of Nevada, this amount of unemployment is unprecedented, but I know people who haven’t gotten a DIME in over 8 weeks, and that doesn’t include the independent contractors. Subrina Hudson, Business Reporter for the Las Vegas Review Journal, joined me to discuss. She recently spoke with the head of DETR (unemployment) in Nevada, and has some insight on what’s happening, (or not happening).
