A polyp removed from Joe Biden's intestine during a colonoscopy last week turned out to be benign, but it could be pre-cancerous.

The 79-year-old president underwent a colonoscopy at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Maryland last week, after experiencing loose bowels and excessive flatulence.

Biden was placed under anesthesia and a flexible tube with a camera attached was snaked into his rectum, large intestine and small intestine.

His doctor performed a colonoscopy procedure to inspect the intestinal walls for polyps or cancerous lesions.

Dr. Kevin C. O'Connor, physician to the president, said the polyp could be pre-cancerous but it was removed and requires no further action.

A follow-up colonoscopy will be conducted in 7-10 years, the doctor wrote in a memo.

Dr. O'Connor insists Biden is "fit for duty," but the president is showing some signs of aging.

While he was under, Vice President Kamala Harris assumed the powers and duties of the president for approximately 90 minutes.

Most polyps are harmless growths or clumps of cells on the intestine wall. They are also found in the uterus, cervix, stomach, ear, nose, bladder, and throat.

Polyps become dangerous when they develop into colon cancer or uterine cancer.

"The best prevention for colon cancer is regular screening for and removal of polyps," the Mayo clinic advises on its website.

Other preventions include eating less meat or no meat, taking an Aspirin a day, and eating a calcium-rich diet.

Ciara Wilson had a bad hair day while promoting the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines to children at the White House on Wednesday.

Ciara, who is married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, brought along her children: daughter Sienna Princess, 4, and sons Future Zahir, 7, and Win Harrison, 1.

First Lady Jill Biden toured the White House with Ciara and her children before heading over to the South Portico, where they waved at Pres. Joe Biden before he boarded Marine One.

The pop singer told her three children to "Wave bye," as the little ones obeyed.

Ciara held onto her wig as the wind whipped furiously around her on the portico.

"They are filming a digital product encouraging pediatric vaccines," East Wing spokesman Michael LaRosa told DailyMail.com. The FDA and CDC approved the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines for children ages 5-11.

An aide made sure Ciara's wig was straight before she spoke to reporters in the White House's press room.

Ciara is the latest celebrity to promote vaccines for the White House. In July, pop star Olivia Rodrigo visited Pennsylvania Avenue to urge young people to get vaccinated.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has suspended the Biden administration's mRNA vaccine mandates.

On Nov. 12, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a motion to block OSHA's Covid-19 mRNA vaccine mandates.

The appeals court stated OSHA's mandate "grossly exceeds OSHA's statutory authority."

However, the Biden Administration told businesses to ignore the 5th Circuit's court order.

"People should not wait. They should continue to move forward and make sure they're getting their workplace vaccinated," White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters.

On Wednesday, OSHA announced it will comply with the 5th Circuit's court order. The agency has suspended enforcement of its vaccine mandate for private sector employees pending the outcome of a plethora of lawsuits.

Thousands of essential workers lost their jobs or quit over their refusal to take the mRNA shots. Federal employees had until January 2022 to be fully vaccinated or face termination.

It isn't clear if private sector employers will follow OSHA's lead and halt the vaccine mandates for their employees.

The news comes on the same day it was reported that vials of the deadly contagion smallpox was found in a freezer inside a Merck pharmaceutical research lab in Pennsylvania.

The FBI and the CDC are investigating after someone alerted the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday night. 5 of the vials were labeled "smallpox".

A comment made by Pres. Joe Biden during a Veterans Day speech on Thursday sparked debates on social media.

Biden, 78, referred to baseball legend Satchel Paige as "the great negro" because he pitched in the Negro Leagues before breaking the race barrier in Major League Baseball.

Negro in Portuguese and Spanish means "black" and is derived from the offensive racial slur ni**er.

During his speech at Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, Biden said he had "adopted the attitude of the great Negro—at the time—pitcher in the Negro leagues, went on to become a great pitcher in the pros in Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson, his name was Satchel Paige. And Satchel Paige on his 47th birthday pitched a win against Chicago."

Paige was not a military veteran. His Selective Service records show he was never drafted into the U.S. military.

Twitter users debated Biden's true meaning when he muttered the word.

Democrats defended their President by advising that he was referring to the Negro Leagues. While others argued that Biden called Paige "a great Negro" in the Negro leagues.


 
One Twitter user wrote: "A white man referring to the negro baseball league would be tore to pieces .. But Biden can get away with being a Supremist."
 
Another Twitter user wrote: "Biden's one hit wonders now include: Calling black children "roaches" And calling famous baseball players “great negros."

And a third person tweeted: "Biden is calling people of color negros cringe."

The Biden administration is ignoring an appeals court order pausing vaccine mandates in companies with more than 100 employees.

The White House on Monday told businesses to proceed with the vaccine mandates despite the court-ordered stay, CNBC reports.

"People should not wait. They should continue to move forward and make sure they're getting their workplace vaccinated," White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters.

On Saturday, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay of the mandates, citing "grave statutory and constitutional" issues with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's new guidelines.

The Biden administration had until Monday, Nov. 8, to file a response to the federal court's stay.

In its response Monday evening, the Biden administration asked the court to lift the pause and dismiss the companies' objections as "premature" given that the deadlines for vaccination and testing are not until January.

The Biden administration claimed that pausing the vaccine mandates "would likely cost dozens or even hundreds of lives per day."

25 Republican governors rushed to file petitions last week to block the mandates in their states after OSHA published its guidelines for private companies that do business with the federal government.

Companies with 100 or more employees must require Covid-19 mRNA vaccinations or weekly testing at the employee's expense.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to weigh in on the constitutionality of OSHA's requirements.

Sesame Street

The Biden administration has recruited Sesame Street characters to push Covid-19 mRNA vaccinations for children.

Big Bird, the 8'-2" longtime Sesame Street resident, was reportedly recruited to push the vaccines because he is only 6 years old.

The FDA approved the mRNA vaccines for children ages 5-11 last week. Big Bird tweeted on Saturday:

"I got the Covid-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it'll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy."

"Good on ya, @BigBird," Joe Biden tweeted Sunday night. "Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep your whole neighborhood safe."

Senator Ted Cruz retweeted Big Bird's post with the caption, "Government propaganda ... for your 5 year old!"

A U.S. federal appeals court blocked the Biden administration's vaccine mandates on companies with more than 100 employees.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Saturday issued a temporary stay, citing "grave statutory and constitutional" issues with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's new guidelines.

The 5th Circuit will expedite a judicial review to block the stay permanently. For now, companies can't enforce vaccine mandates on its employees.

The Biden administration has until Monday, Nov. 8, to file a response to the federal court's stay.

In September, the U.S. President signed an executive order giving OSHA unprecedented authority over private companies that do business with the federal government.

Companies with at least 100 employees must require mRNA vaccinations or the unvaccinated must undergo weekly testing.

The vaccine mandates do not apply to remote employees, self-employed people who work from home, or employees who work outdoors.

OSHA finally published its new regulations that label the coronavirus as an occupational hazard in the workplace.

Governors rushed to file lawsuits against the OSHA guidelines. At least 25 governors said they would fight the mandates once the new OSHA rules were published.

OSHA delayed publishing the new guidelines for nearly two months while thousands of essential workers -- nurses, doctors and police officers quit or lost their jobs.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of OSHA's mandates.

The White House flip-flopped a day after Joe Biden denied a report that he is paying illegal immigrants 450,000 each to settle a class action lawsuit.

In a carefully worded statement, White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that the U.S. President is "perfectly comfortable" paying migrant families separated at the U.S. border in 2018.

Jean-Pierre, standing in for fully vaccinated press secretary Jen Psaki who was tested positive for Covid-19, said Biden will settle with illegal immigrants. However, Jean-Pierre said illegals may not receive $450,000 each.

"If it saves taxpayer dollars and puts the disastrous history of the previous administration's use of 'zero tolerance' and family separation behind us, the President is perfectly comfortable with the Department of Justice settling with the individuals and families who are currently in litigation with the US government."

She wouldn't specify an amount, however, the ACLU has said the Justice Department agreed to pay $450,000 per person and up to $1 million per family.

On Wednesday, Biden, 78, was asked by Fox News' White House correspondent Peter Doocy whether the reports were true.

"It's not true," Biden said. "Yeah. $450,000 per person, is that what you're saying? That's not going to happen."

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) reportedly settled a class action lawsuit seeking "damages" for immigrant families who crossed the border into this country illegally.

Last August, Cardi B gave Joe Biden her wish list of things to do for the Black community if he was elected president.

Today, we check off every item on Cardi B's wish list and grade the President's ability to get the job done for the Black community.

Cardi B: "First, I just want Trump out. His mouth gets us in trouble so much."

Grade: PASS

Cardi B: "I want free Medicare. It's important to have free (healthcare)..."

Grade: FAIL

Medicare and healthcare are still not free -- unless you're an illegal immigrant.

Cardi B: "We're dealing with a pandemic... I want to know when this will be over?"

Grade: FAIL

There were more deaths from Covid-19 in 2021 than in 2020 when there were no vaccines available. The vaccines have not stopped the spread of the virus as promised by the CDC. In the past week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki and L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti have tested positive for Covid-19, despite both being "fully vaccinated."

Cardi B: "We need free college education."

Grade: FAIL

After listening to Cardi's demands, Biden promised free four-year college education for everyone. "Everybody gets free community college." He has also reneged on his vow to forgive $10,000 in student loans.

Cardi B: "I want Black people to stop getting killed."

Grade: FAIL

The Biden administration has done nothing to stop the bloodshed in Democratic cities like Chicago and Atlanta. Nearly 700 Black people have lost their lives to gun violence in Chicago alone with nearly 2 months to go in 2021.

Cardi B asked Biden for "after school programs" in the 'hood like she had growing up.

Grade: FAIL

There are still no after school programs in inner city neighborhoods.

Cardi B asked Biden for free childcare so single moms can go to work.

Grade: FAIL

Childcare expenses have gone through the roof since Biden has been in office. So has inflation, gas, food prices, etc.

Cardi B: "People wanna know can you provide college education, this Medicare plan, without a big chunk of taxes coming out of our checks?"

Grade: FAIL

Biden has not delivered on his promise to provide free college education. And his proposed $1.5 trillion economic plan will raise taxes across the board for low income and middle class communities.

At the conclusion of their chat, Biden told Cardi B he would make mistakes as president and he would admit to the mistakes he makes. So far, he has blamed former President Trump for everything.
