It's not hard to find, but here's Weingarten's prepared statement (accompanied by a letter from AFT's lead counsel): https://oversight.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/Prepared-Statement-of-AFT-President-Randi-Weingarten.pdf

Those kids suffered a tremendous trauma because of that psychopath.

Not sure they will ever recover from it.

they just make stuff up and there's no risk of any ramifications... she is pure evil, right on display here.. even if true her selfish neurosis is emblematic of what the kids had to endure, a barrage of self righteous neurotics who run public institutions... and nothing is going to change

I live in a quiet rural area. When I have visited NYC on vacation (before covid), it seemed like there were sirens all night long. I assume the locals tune it out, but if there was a reason to be afraid of the sirens, they would tune back in. I tune out gunshots which are common (hunting is popular around here) but during deer season I pay attention in case someone is hunting near our house. I suspect poor Randi suffers from selective hearing.

I *do* doubt her. I follow a YouTuber who took daily walks through Manhatten with his video camera. It was eerily quiet. And yes, he walked right past one of the big hospitals and its completely empty "refrigerator truck" for all the dead bodies there supposedly were. There's probably more ambulances today rushing murder and assault victims to the ER than there ever were for COVID.

I hope they will ask her about her "contribution" to the CDC guidelines that kept schools (in blue states) to limited access through 2021. The distancing requirements kept many in the dreaded hybrid situations.

many of the ambulances were empty, traveling slow at barely 20 MPH, drivers were smiling and waving at each other.

this was an op

i know because I live in nyc near a hospital (beth israel). went up there many times during the lockdown, first time around the first of April 2020, it was deserted, the only ambulance parked there was empty and the driver was sleeping in the back.

the sirens would start at around 8 PM sharp and suddenly end at midnight.

same thing happened in the uk

guess the virus got tired and had to get some sleep.

When I last was in Manhattan 14 years ago, I heard sirens on the streets below my friend's apartment all night.

The first months of the pandemic were insane in the Seattle area. January and February were the usual winter busy, but by March our urgent cares were completely dead, some seeing no patients. We temporarily closed some facilities and all of us took a cut in hours. I heard the hospital basically sat empty. Once, when I called the ER to transfer a patient, the doc asked me if our UC's were as quiet as the ER. He said they were all messing around on their phones as there was nothing to do. Highly unusual for a major hospital in the area. Yet our public health officials held pressers acting like the sky was falling. That kind of thing made me start to realize that this was all a sham.

RW is clearly the lowest of the low. Sold her soul so long ago the devil has forgotten about it. I put her in the Birx box. Meaning, how does someone so unimpressive garner so much power and influence? If you read Atlas' book. it's clear that Birx was just a nasty midwit shrew who no one wanted to deal with. No one, including Trump, was willing stand up to her and be subjected to her wrath. Much easier to stay away from her and let her carry on. I have no doubt this also explains RW. She now senses the jig is up, so like all rats she is scurrying for cover and attempting to rewrite history (joined by Fauci, Trudeau, et al.)

complete lies from a worthless beuracrat. She lives in an alternate reality, a place where her opinions mean anything. In the real world shes seen for what she is, a useless phony stealing money from dues paying teachers. I'd guess most of the members of that union hate her, and all she be remebered for is overseeing the membership plummet as more and more people flee the useless public school system.

It was more likely sirens from all the inner-city violence that increased because kids were SHUT OUT of schools! OMG. I can't even with these people becoming triggered over everything.

Maybe someone could tell this lunatic that the "uptick" was from people dying in their homes due to being scared to death by the media hyenas and not getting going to get proper care for their cardiac conditions.

She is a commie troglodyte and always has been. Truly Vonneguts “ Diana Moon Glampers” in flesh and blood.
