Neanderthal Thinking Turns Bi-Partisan

A friend sent the following little missive over to me the morning after China Joe Biden had accused Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Tate Reeves of Mississippi of “Neanderthal thinking” after they ended their statewide orders on wearing masks and imposing occupancy limits on a wide variety of dining, drinking and service businesses:

“Those of us who descend from Europe are 3 to 5 percent Neanderthal DNA. We should have a special protected status and get reparations in the form of quality cave art. Our ancestors were obliterated. I am tired of discrimination against Neanderthals.”

Great parody of today’s leftwing Perpetual Outrage Mob thinking right there.

But now, China Joe and his toadying Mob are faced with having to shift their talking and screaming points yet again. Late Thursday, Democrat Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont joined Abbott and Reeves in dramatically rolling back his own unconstitutional orders.

From a story at DailyWire:

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced on Thursday that his state would soon be making significant reductions to restrictions that the state implemented in an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

“Most of the changes will go into effect on March 19, with several more coming down the line over the following two weeks,” the Hartford Courant reported. “The decision comes as President Joe Biden warns states not to move fast on reopening. Lamont said the decision was a result of Connecticut’s dropping COVID-19 metrics.”

A statement from the governor’s office said that while many of the measures are being rolled back, protocols about wearing face coverings, social distancing, and sanitation measures are still being kept in place.

All capacity limits in Connecticut are being eliminated on March 19 for restaurants, retail outlets, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation, gyms, museums, zoos, offices, and places of worship. On March 29, capacity limits on early childhood classes will increase from 16 to 20. On April 2, outdoor amusement parks can open, outdoor venues can increase to a 50% capacity with a maximum 10,000 people, and indoor stadiums can open to 10% capacity.

[End]

So, being a Democrat, Lamont naturally wants to preserve his brutish control over his citizens’ daily lives to some extent, but the direction he is moving is abundantly clear: It is in the same direction as Abbott and Reeves.

Thus, being a Neanderthal becomes a rare exercise in bi-partisanship in today’s polarized America. Go figure. Then again, all three governors are obviously of European descent, thus proving my friend’s thesis conclusively. That Neanderthal blood runs thick.

In fact, my buddy’s anecdote was backed up on Thursday by none other than Senator Marco Rubio, as reported by the New York Post:

Sen. Marco Rubio is urging President Biden to seek “training on unconscious bias” after using the term “Neanderthal” to criticize Republican governors who ended COVID-19 mask mandates.

The Florida Republican humorously described the word as a “stereotype” and noted Thursday that many people of Eurasian ancestry descend from the extinct hominid species.

“President Biden’s use of an old stereotype is hurtful to modern Europeans, Asians & Americans who inherit about 2% of their genes from Neanderthal ancestors,” Rubio tweeted.

“He should apologize for his insensitive comments and seek training on unconscious bias.”

Sen. Rubio was joking, sort of, but Biden’s various forms of bigotry are starkly obvious to anyone who has paid attention to his public utterances through the years. Just yesterday, in fact, Biden told a group of NASA engineers that Indian Americans are “taking over the country.” Presumably, Indian Americans will be glad to learn that Biden is no longer accusing them of owning and running all of the 7/11 stores, as he did in a famous incident about 20 years ago.

Progress.

Of course, Biden and the Mob will continue to scream about masks and the fiction that they have done anything to halt the spread of the viral gift from China. That bit of idiocy is destroyed in this easy-to-understand chart:

May be an image of text that says '260000 DAILY NEW CASES UNITED STATES CDC "CASES ARE ON THE TH" March3 100000 80000 Harris Pollt 93% MASK COMPLIANCE October 22 National Geographic 92% MASK COMPLIANCE CDC October 89% MASK COMPLIANCE Pew Research CDC June 85% MASK 83% MASK COMPLIANCE COMPLIANCE CDC May 78% MASK COMPLIANCE April 40000 30000 20000 10000'

For those incapable of reading a simple line chart, what this one shows is that, as Americans got to 93% compliance with mask orders around the country, the number of “cases” of COVID-19 rocketed skywards to unprecedented levels. It’s not necessarily a cause and effect relationship, though: More likely just a case of the masks having zero impact on anything, which many studies all over the globe have found.

To be absolutely clear on this: I think wearing masks should be a personal choice and I don’t care what choice anyone else makes. I have worn a mask everywhere it has been required for 10 months simply because those have been the rules, as unconstitutional as they clearly are, even though I know there is zero data indicating that wearing theses masks protects me or anyone else.

What I object to is someone saying “it’s premature” and “the Governor’s a neanderthal” without backing either statement up with the slightest bit of data or science.

I’m not a huge fan of Governor Abbott’s orders, but in his defense, every step he has taken has been based on real data and the advice from his chosen panel of experts. His approach has been systemic and defensible and utterly consistent. The lunatic level of outrage his latest order has produced is completely uncalled for and utterly unsupported by a shred of data or science.

So, yeah, I’m going to push back on that, and I hope others do as well.

Bottom line, this is my most fervent wish about what should happen related to COVID-19:

The Leftist Outrage Mob Goes Crazy in Texas

Ok, so, the new Texas liberal/leftist/socialist/fascist/communist virtue signal is to go onto Twitter or Facebook and brag that “I’m gonna keep wearing my mask – I don’t care what that neanderthal Abbott says!” Which tells you they’re breathlessly keeping up with their Democrat Party talking points, since the elderly Sock Puppet In Chief used the word “neanderthal” yesterday when talking about Texas Governer Greg Abbott’s rescission of his statewide mask order and job-killing limitations on Texas businesses.

But don’t ask them what actual data or science they’re using as the foundation for their demented brag; if you do, they’ll just scream something like “it’s science because Fauci says so!!!!!” or something similar. After all, these are people who have already made a conscious decision to remain willfully ignorant of any data or science that does not support the daily talking, er, screaming points coming at them from Biden and Fauci and that bald little fat guy on CNN.

Let’s face it, they’re already intentionally ignoring every shred of science about kids being back in school so they can go to Twitter and Facebook to signal their teacher’s union-supporting virtue. Expecting any of them to actually pay attention to the real science about the utter uselessness of wearing masks is like asking for a complete change in long-engrained behavior.

Not gonna happen.

Very predictably, the sadistic cowards who run big box stores like Wal-Mart and Target in Texas have also already made the decision to follow the mood of the Perpetual Outrage Mob and continue to require the wearing of masks on their premises, which Governor Abbott made very clear is their right to do in his order. Of course, it’s to their advantage to play to the mob, which makes up half of their customer base. And it’s also to their advantage to do their part in fanning the mob’s flames since it will encourage the mask-wearers to now boycott any small business competitor who chooses to lift their own mask requirement.

See how this works?

As I told a friend on Facebook yesterday, this is what a year of brainwashing by Fauci and the corrupt news media has done to the left: Turned them into a pack of braying hyenas who consider it a significant virtue to deny American kids a full year of real in-school education – something that is most negatively impactful for the least-privileged kids among us – and to walk around hiding half their faces behind one, two or even three masks that have been proved time after time after time to have literally no impact on the spread of this virus.

As well, school superintendents across Texas are signaling their own virtue to the mob by announcing they will keep in place the mask requirements and other restrictions that have set back millions of school children in the state. Here is one typically idiotic statement from the superintendent of the Cedar Hill ISD in North Texas:

“Cedar Hill Independent School District, we certainly believe the mask requirement should continue for the foreseeable future. The masks have allowed us to return to a semblance of normalcy. They have prevented COVID-19 cases and allowed in-classroom learning to begin and thrive…”

No, the masks have not prevented COVID-19 cases. As even Anthony Fauci has repeatedly stated on national television, there is zero evidence that school-age kids are spreaders of the virus, and even less evidence that requiring 7 year-old children to wear masks has prevented a single case of the viral gift from China. This is propaganda, nothing more, and it is what we are running our schools upon. It’s the very same propaganda that screamed that the recent Super Bowl held in Tampa, Florida would turn into a “super spreader” event, but ignores the actual science and data that proves it was in fact nothing of the sort.

As I’ve been warning you for many months now: The left’s response to COVID is not about saving lives, it is about controlling lives. It is about creating the pretense for making things like wearing masks and stay-at-home orders and unconstitutional restrictions on the freedoms we have always held dear permanent features of our lives. These restrictions are things they consider to be features, not glitches, and they are going to cling to them by any means necessary.

Why? Because a population that not only lives in fear but does so willingly is much easer to control as the Democrats continue to shove their rancid form of fascist socialism down its collective throat.

That’s what this is about, and the Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter and Facebook provides the foot soldiers for the spread of the Nazi-style propaganda.

As is always the case with leftists, once you accept their actual motivations, everything they do and say, er, scream makes perfect sense.

Wednesday News Roundup: Beto O’Rourke Eyes a Comeback and Anthony Fauci Lacks Self-Awareness

What is this – a scene from the Walking Dead?

That’s your ruling class, folks, holding candles while huddled safe behind their Capitol wall, with thousands of National Guard troops there to protect them.

By the way, more than 100,000 of those 500,000 Americans died in just the first month of the Biden presidency. IN ONE MONTH. But hey, Mitch and his fellow RINOs are out holding candles with their Democrat buddies, so we got that going for us. Holy crap.

Speaking of Mitch McConnell and the RINO herd… – They’re all doing what RINOs always do in a new Democrat administration, and voting to confirm China Joe’s appointees as if they’re qualified or something. Yesterday Mitch announced he was planning to vote to confirm Merrick Garland, an Attorney General nominee who admits that he hasn’t even thought about whether or not illegal crossings of U.S. borders are in fact crimes.

This man has sat on the federal bench for decades now, yet he insults the intelligence of every American by claiming he hasn’t even thought about one of the most pressing issues of our time and Cocaine Mitch and the RINO herd that follows him around the walled-in Capitol Building are just going to snap their fingers and vote to confirm him.

Four years ago, none of President Trump’s nominees received more than a few Democrat votes for confirmation. But Mitch and his RINO herd learned nothing from that experience. As always, there’s a war going on in Washington, DC, and the Democrats are the only ones fighting it.

Godspeed, Tiger Woods. – We all have opinions about Tiger Woods. I was an enormous fan until about 2009, when evidence came to light that he most likely had taken steroids to advance his career. But he has made an admirable comeback in recent years from knee and back issues that culminated in a win at The Masters.

The leg injuries he suffered in yesterday’s car accident will be hard for a 45 year-old man to overcome. A golf swing like Tiger’s places tremendous stress on the back and legs, so his future appears to be murky at best. He will obviously receive the best medical care possible, and all golfing fans can do is hope and pray for the best.

The Most Inevitable Story of the Week, from Politico. – Sigh. This story is so predictable that it’s a wonder it took this long for the Democrat toady media to get it out. Texas Republicans are taking a drubbing in the wake of last week’s winter weather disaster, because hey, they’ve been in charge of all aspects of Texas government for 27 years now. So, who else are Texans going to blame for the massive, epic failure of ERCOT and other Texas officials to ensure the heat and lights stay on when it’s 5 degrees outside?

Thus, the first thought of any leftwing fake reporter at Politico was bound to be “oh joy, does this mean we get our Beto back?”, and right on cue, the story appears:

Here’s an excerpt from the media’s latest Beto booster piece:

While Ted Cruz was getting clobbered for fleeing Texas amid its historic winter storm, the Democrat he defeated in 2018, Beto O’Rourke, was already deep into disaster relief mode — soliciting donations for storm victims, delivering pallets of water from his pickup truck and once again broadcasting his movements on Facebook Live.

It was part of an effort orchestrated by O’Rourke and his organization, Powered by People, in response to the crisis. It was also, to Texas Democrats, a sign that O’Rourke the politician is back.

The former congressman and onetime Democratic sensation acknowledgedlast month that he’s considering running for governor in 2022,and he has discussedthe possibility with Democratic Party officials and other associates. The drubbing that Texas Republicans are taking in the wake of the deadly storm may provide him with an opening — even in his heavily Republican state.

“After all of Texas freezes over because of poor leadership, I think it’s a different state of Texas than it was two weeks ago,” said Mikal Watts, a San Antonio-based lawyer and major Democratic money bundler.

If O’Rourke runs for governor, Watts said, “I think he could catch fire.”

[End]

I laughed out loud at that last line, since that’s exactly what every Democrat in Texas and Washington, DC said about “Abortion Barbie” Wendy Davis when she challenged Greg Abbott in the governor’s race in 2014. She ended up getting slaughtered by 21 percent of the vote.

Is Irish Bob, our favorite fake Hispanic, likely to challenge Abbott next year? Yeah, probably, although it’s a long way between now and November 2022. After all, the pampered child of millionaires who is married to the daughter of a billionaire doesn’t know how to do any honest work, so politics is the only option to get him out of the damn house.

And hey, Irish Bob has already clearly demonstrated that no one in Texas can pull in millions of Hollywood and New York dollars for a political race like he can. The Democrats are always desperate to find someone willing to be their sacrificial lamb for the governor’s race every four years – who can forget Lupe Valdez, Bill White or Chris Bell? – so having their media darling already teed up to go presents the party with a rare bird in the hand.

So jump on in, Irish Bob, the water’s fine.

This week’s Utter Lack of Self-Awareness Award goes to… – The little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci, who told an interviewer this week that the United States has “done worse than most any other country” in its response to COVID-19:

Here’s an excerpt from that New York Post story:

Dr. Anthony Fauci says the US has “done worse than most any other country” in battling COVID-19.

With the country’s current 500,000-plus deaths nearly double the figure of Brazil, the nation with the next highest number of mortalities, Fauci told ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” Monday, “It’s so tough to just go back and try and do a metaphorical autopsy on how things went. It was just bad.

“I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country — and we’re a highly developed, rich country,” the nation’s top infectious-disease doctor said.

“I think these numbers are just so stunning,” said the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said, the day the US passed the half-million-deaths mark.

“Remember back in the late winter, early spring, of 2020 when we were saying we could get as high as 240,000 [fatalities], and people were thinking we were being hyperbolic about it — and here we are with a half-million deaths.”

[End]

Ok, so, anybody out there see what the Little Menace seems to be missing here?

Who has without question been the leader of our country’s “strategy” in dealing with the viral gift from China? Who has been out in the media damn near every day urging Democrat governors to lockdown businesses, coop people up in their homes and wear masks despite there being not a shred of science or actual data indicating any of those approaches has the slightest positive impact on the spread of this virus? Who has been contradicting himself, constantly moving the goal posts and confusing the entire country in media appearances day after day after day?

Isn’t the correct answer to all of those questions and so many more “Anthony Fauci”?????

Seriously, how does this Little Menace still have a job? The damage he has done to our society over the last 12 months is simply incalculable. He has arguably done more harm to our society than any figure in history, yet you can be sure that he will be appearing on CNN or MSNBC again today, confusing the situation even more than he already has done.

Relying on this little totalitarian despot is the very worst mistake Donald Trump ever made. We will be paying for that decision for many years to come.

That is all.

The COVID Pandemic Could be Ending – and That’s a Real Problem for Biden

Lots of media chatter happening today about the dramatic fall in COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates since the first of the year. Here are some examples:

It seems the vaccines that were fast-tracked by the Trump Administration are proving even more effective than first thought, thanks to the rapid distribution and administering program implemented by the Trump team, which had more than 1 million doses being delivered every day by the time China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency. That reality, combined with the build-up of herd immunity in the country is now leading to a dramatic drop in the infection, hospitalization and death rates related to the viral gift from China.

From the New York Post story linked above:

A Johns Hopkins professor and surgeon says that the coronavirus could be “mostly gone” by April.

Marty Makary, who teaches at the university’s School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, said in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Friday that daily infections have declined by 77 percent since January.

“There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection,” Makary wrote. “As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect COVID will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.”

Vaccinations and the high number of people who have already been infected in the US — more than 28 million — could contribute to herd immunity in the spring, Makary said. Herd immunity occurs when enough people become immune to a virus, ending its spread. Makary also said it would protect against new strains of the coronavirus from spreading.

“When the chain of virus transmission has been broken in multiple places, it’s harder for it to spread — and that includes the new strains,” he said.

[End]

Of course, none of this is in any way in the Biden/Fauci plan to keep Americans holed up in their homes and wearing double-masks into perpetuity. Even worse, it is crystal clear that these suddenly much more positive outlooks are the result of actions taken by the Trump administration, and that neither Biden nor his evil handlers can take credit for any of it.

Thus, the only recourse available for the Biden people to take is of course to try to revise history, which is why we saw the DC Swamp Sock Puppet-in-Chief say this on Friday:

BIDEN: “Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor, as my mother would say, ‘failed to order enough vaccines,’ failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots… That changed the moment we took office.”

This is obviously an outright lie, but hey, he’s a Democrat, so what else would we expect?

To be clear: Nothing changed the moment Biden took office. In fact, it is painfully obvious from his and Fauci’s constantly-shifting narratives that they had no plan whatsoever related to COVID-19 on January 20, and still don’t have any real plan – other than to needlessly keep schools closed at the behest of teacher’s unions – today, one full month later.

And now, their plan to keep Americans frightened and masked for years to come is imperiled by the solutions made possible by the executive actions of Donald J. Trump.

For actual Americans, the potential for their lives to return to something resembling normalcy is cause for celebration. But for Biden and his fellow Democrats, it’s the worst possible scenario.

That’s the truth, and we shouldn’t be shy about saying it.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Jeep Blows $22 Million on Drunk Springsteen and the Double Mask Mandate is Coming Soon

My only question: Was Springsteen driving a Jeep?

The dimwits who run Jeep spent $22 million on a Super Bowl ad featuring Bruce Springsteen, one of the most obscene and irrational leftist critics of President Donald Trump, advocating for “national unity” now that the DC Swamp has installed a brain-addled, China-subservient sock puppet in the White House. The ad featured the washed-up 3-note rock star driving a Jeep across beautiful American – or maybe they were Chinese, who knows? – terrains into a serene sunset.

Anyway, you will never, never, never, ever see Jeep run that ad again, because yesterday the Hollywood Reporter revealed that Springsteen got himself arrested for DWI and reckless endangerment charges last year. I swear I am not making this stuff up.

From a glorious story at the New York Post:

He was Bombed in the USA!

Bruce Springsteen was arrested for DWI and reckless driving in his home state, it was revealed Wednesday — days after he appeared in a much-hyped Super Bowl commercial for Jeep.

The “Born to Run” icon, 71, was busted Nov. 14 at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, New Jersey, a spokesperson for the National Park Service said.

Springsteen was charged with DWI, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area, the spokesperson said.

“Springsteen was cooperative throughout the process,” the spokesperson added.

According to TMZ, which first reported the arrest, the allegedly juiced Bruce has a court date in the coming weeks and has no known prior busts for DWI.

[End]

As I noted on Monday, the only way Jeep could have selected a more divisive face for its “unity” ad would have been for them to put Robert De Niro or Alec Baldwin behind the wheel. And that was before we knew about the DWI.

“Unity” is obviously a concept the people who run Jeep fail to adequately grasp. And so, $22 million just rolls right down the ol’ drain.

Cool.

DC Swamp Kabuki Theater Impeachment Scam Update. – I haven’t watched a minute of these impeachment proceedings and do not plan to do so. But Lindsey Graham obviously thinks things are going well for the defense:

Nurses advised to swap words such as ‘breast milk’ for the more inclusive ‘human milk’

*sigh*

Stock up on those masks, folks, because you will soon be required to wear two at a time. – That’s the inevitable message from yesterday’s advisory from the CDC that people should consider wearing two masks. Nevermind the reality that there is literally zero real scientific evidence that wearing masks do anything to stop the spread of COVID-19, the bureaucrats at Biden’s CDC released a “study” yesterday that claims to find the wearing of two masks to be oh, so much more effective than wearing just one:

From the sham story about the sham study at ABC News:

Fit matters when it comes to your mask protecting you against the virus that causes COVID-19, and layering a well-fitting cloth mask over a surgical mask is likely to prove beneficial, according to new findings released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It also doesn’t change the recommendation that primarily medical workers in high-risk environments should rely on N95 masks, which act as a strong filter against any contaminants but is notably tougher to breathe in and withstand for long periods of time.

Still, the experiment touches on some of the big questions Americans have on how best to protect themselves when mixing in public, such as grocery stores and airplanes.

The research suggests that when a person “double masks” — wearing a polypropylene surgical mask with a cloth mask on top — and the people around them did the same, the risk of transmitting the virus falls more than 95%.

Researchers, who used two mannequin-like forms to test exposure, found a similar benefit with tightening a single surgical mask around the ears to improve its fit. Using a hack known as a “knot and tuck,” the researchers ensured the surgical mask fits closely around the face without gaps.

[End]

Note the part I placed in bold there, buried in the 6th paragraph of the story: This “study” involved putting masks on freaking MANNEQUINS. Not real people, not monkeys, not even lab rats. MANNEQUINS.

This is what the CDC wants you to believe amounts to “science,” because they know that doing actual scientific studies would lead to findings that wearing masks doesn’t help stop the spread of this virus.

Let me tell you where this is all leading. Despite the sentence in the ABC story that says “The findings were not expected to lead to new mask recommendations by the CDC,” this sham study will inevitably lead to new mask recommendations by the CDC at some point in the near future.

And guess who is going to make damn sure that happens? If you guessed “Anthony Fauci,” you win the prize. Fauci, after all, kicked off this “two masks are better than one” process back in early January during one of his myriad TV appearances, claiming it was just “common sense.” That is what encouraged the CDC to conduct this sham study in the first place, despite the fact that Fauci was forced to admit during another TV appearance that he had no real data indicating that wearing two masks was effective.

At some point in the near future, the despotic Democrat governors will get into the act. One of them will be designated to become the first to issue a gubernatorial “two mask” mandate, and the others will line up to follow along. Soon, milquetoast GOP governors like Mike Dewine in Ohio and Kay Ivey in Alabama will jump on the bandwagon.

Next, all the Karens will be wearing their two masks and start assaulting people like you who only wear one mask in the produce section of the local grocery store as you’re picking out some avocados. Soon thereafter, your local grocery stores will begin posting two-mask requirements just so their managers don’t have to listen to all the obnoxious Karens bitch at them about it.

The Perpetual Outrage Crowd on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms will all be signaling their virtue by posting photos of them forcing their 7 year-old kids to wear three masks to school just to be “safe” and digitally screaming at you for not being “good” like they are as their children struggle for breath behind them.

Next, probably no later than April or May, employers will start mandating that all employees start wearing two masks at all times, even those who work at home, because your CEOs all need to signal their virtue and absolute fealty to the state, too.

Then Anthony Fauci, in yet another appearance on CNN or MSNBC or maybe even with Bret Baier on Fox News, will say something like, you know, it just makes”common sense” for two masks to be required during all travel on airlines, buses, trains and hey, why not just go ahead and wear two masks in your own car just in case, you know?

Even though he will later be forced to admit that absolutely no data or scientific basis exists for this latest “common sense” mask advice, Democrat governors like Gavin Newsom and Gretchen Whitmer will issue another round of orders mandating double mask wearing in cars and the CDC will issue an advisory for all public forms of travel based on a “study” it conducted on crash test dummies in 1962 Corvairs and 1973 Pintos.

That is where this is all going, folks, and if you don’t believe me, you haven’t been paying attention to what’s already happened to you over the past 11 months.

When I turn out to be 100% correct here, you can give me a call and thank me for warning you – that is, if you can draw enough breath through the two masks you’re wearing because Anthony Fauci, the little menace to American society, told some CNN hack that “it just makes common sense” to wear two masks while talking on the phone, “because who knows where that thing has been?”

Wednesday News Roundup: Fauci Moves the COVID Goal Posts One More Time

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder -Donald Trump has been out of the White House for 3 weeks now, and the news cycle is still all about him.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very, very real thing.

God Bless Texas. – For the 19th straight year, Texas ranks #1 among all states in export value, chalking up $279 billion during 2020. California comes in a distant second with about $155 billion for the year. If Texas were an independent country as it was intended to be, it would rank 20th among all nations on earth.

No photo description available.

Who knows? If the Democrats keep moving the country into fascist socialism, Texas might end up becoming an independent nation again in the near future.

Stranger things have happened.

Just one more reason to detest the Dallas Mavericks specifically and the NBA in general. – Most readers here stopped watching NBA basketball years ago, but now the owner of the Dallas Mavericks has handed all you hangers-on one more reason to break the basketball habit: He has banned the National Anthem of the United States of America from being played at his arena before home games.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

From the story at DailyWire:

At the direction of owner Mark Cuban, the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks have stopped playing the national anthem before home games this season and do not intend to play it for home games moving forward.

As noted by Tim Cato, who broke the story at The Athletic on Monday evening, the anthem-snub by the Mavericks is “the first instance we know of a pro sports team striking the U.S. anthem from the pre-game.”

Cuban confirmed to Cato that he was the one who decided the Mavs should pull the anthem.

“None of 13 preseason and regular-season games played at the American Airlines Center this season have featured the anthem before the game, including Monday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the first played this season with a limited amount of fans in attendance,” Cato reported Monday. “The Mavericks did not publicize the anthem’s removal, and The Athletic was the first media organization to reach out about the change after noticing its absence on Monday. Multiple team employees described only noticing the anthem’s removal on their own, as it was also not announced or explained internally.”

As the nation has become increasingly divided, traditionally unifying acts of patriotism, like standing for the national anthem, have become partisan. The anthem controversy was first sparked in 2016, when then-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick politicized “The Star-Spangled Banner” when he refused to stand because, according to Kaepernick, America “oppresses” minorities and allows its cops to “murder” innocent people of color.

[End]

If you’re still watching NBA basketball, you seriously should consider finding better things to do with your time, like reading, playing games with your kids, or taking that whining dog out for a second walk in the evenings. You’ll be a happier person for having done so.

Well of course he did. – Hey, it turns out that China Joe Biden’s pick to be our next CIA chief, William Burns, has led a “think tank” that has raked in millions of dollars in contributions from – you guessed it – CHINA in recent years.

No kidding:

Holy crap. From the story at the Daily Caller:

William J. Burns, who is President Joe Biden’s nominee for director of the CIA, is president of a think tank that has received up to $2 million from a Chinese businessman as well as from a think tank with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

As president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Burns also invited nearly a dozen congressional staffers to attend a junket to China, where they met with a communist party operative and a president of a Chinese front group.

Burns, who was paid $540,580 last year as president of Carnegie, will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee for a confirmation hearing likely to be held this month. He has been president of Carnegie since March 2015.

During Burns’ tenure at Carnegie, a businessman named Zhang Yichen joined the think tank’s board of trustees.

“We are very fortunate to have Zhang Yichen on our board,” Burns, a former deputy secretary of state, said in a statement in October 2016. “I look forward to working with him to make Carnegie an even finer institution.”

Zhang, the CEO of CITIC Consulting, a China-based investment firm, donated between $500,000 and $999,999 to Carnegie from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018, according to Carnegie’s website. He gave between $250,000 and $549,999 in the 2020 fiscal year, according to Carnegie’s 2020 annual report.

Zhang is a member of two organizations linked to the Chinese Communist Party, according to his biography at CITIC Capital: the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the Center for China and Globalization.

You seriously just could never make this stuff up, folks. Don’t even try.

This may be the single greatest bargain in world history:

Sign me up!

The Little Menace To Society moves the goal posts one more time. – Anthony Fauci was in the news again on Tuesday, performing his duty as the chief propagandist for the COVID-based fascist/socialist takeover of the United States. In an appearance with Bret Baier on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Fauci moved the goal posts down the field again related to how long Americans must keep wearing their masks in public once again.

The new goal? When the viral gift from China “is not a threat at all.”

“That will really be dependent upon how we get the level of virus in the community down,” Fauci responded. “If we can get — and I have used this as an estimate, it’s not definitive — but  if we can get 70 to 85 percent of the population vaccinated, and get to what we would hope would be to a degree of herd immunity which really is an umbrella or a veil of protection against the community, where the level of virus is so low it’s not a threat at all, then at that point, you can start thinking in terms of not having to have uniform wearing of masks.”

Wait, what?

It is vitally important that everyone fully understand what Fauci is saying here, because what he is really saying is that you are going to be wearing your masks in public literally forever.

This is a flu-like virus, not smallpox, not polio, not the measles. As a flu-like virus, it is not ever going to be completely eradicated. It is going to be an ongoing “threat” to our health from now on. Just as we are all encouraged by the government to take our annual shots to help ward off the seasonal flu, we now face a future of being urged to take COVID shots each and every year.

It has been conclusively proven that COVID’s rate of mortality is no higher than that of the common seasonal flu, yet Fauci is now declaring that we as a country will be forced by the government to treat it completely differently in order to continue to justify the draconian lockdowns and social distancing and mask-wearing that have destroyed the greatest economy in U.S. history and threaten to destroy the very fabric of our society.

Since last March, I have warned readers that this was where Fauci always wanted to take us, which is why I tagged him at that time as a menace to our society. Over the last 11 months, Fauci has consistently shifted the goal posts for dealing with this virus, always in a way that helps justify all of the brutish acts of Democrat governors – and some stupid GOP governors as well – around the country.

Getting to this specific place has always been Fauci’s goal from Day One. And now he has gotten us there, with a human sock puppet in the White House supporting him all the way.

So, stock up on those masks, folks, because you’re going to be wearing them for at least the next four years. Anthony Fauci is going to make damn sure of that.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: France Violates Its Own Climate Accords as Gas Prices and Gun Sales Rocket Skyward

Oh. You don’t saaaaaayyyyy… – I’ve pointed out in several pieces the fact that the United States, the only nation on earth that was not a formal participant in the Paris Climate Accords thanks to the foresight of Donald Trump, was also the only industrialized nation on earth that has not only met its unenforceable “targets” under that sham wealth redistribution scheme, but exceeded them.

The U.S. has surpassed its emissions targets all the way through 2025, in fact, mainly thanks to the fact that clean natural gas has displaced huge amounts of coal in power generation. At the same time, European nations that had forced their economies heavily into wind and solar with massive government programs have been falling far short.

One of those countries is Germany. Another, of course, France – ironically where the agreement was consummated years ago – whose leaders were also among the most petulant and snarky in their condemnation of America’s non-participation. France has fallen so far and obviously short that a court in Paris actually found the country guilty this week of this imaginary “crime.”

No, I’m not making this stuff up:

Here’s an excerpt from the CBS News piece:

Paris — Four environmental groups are crying victory after France was found guilty of failing to meet climate change goals it committed to in a historic accord signed in and named after its own capital city. The Administrative Tribunal in Paris ruled Wednesday that France had fallen short of its promise to reduce greenhouse gases under commitments made in the 2015 Paris Agreement, and was “responsible for ecological damage.”

While the court declared the government guilty of inaction, it rejected a claim for damages by the four NGOs that brought the suit, ordering the government to pay just one symbolic euro to them instead. The tribunal also said it would decide within two months whether to recommend any measures for the government to resolve its failure to meet its own commitments.

In January, the court called the proceedings the “first major climate trial in France.”

[End]

Thus, just as with the Paris Accords themselves, this climate “trial” ends in an empty gesture involving a lot of hot air, pontificating and toothless threats of future action.

Things are not good in America right now, but it could be worse: We could be France.

Do you get the feeling that it’s costing you more to fill up your gas tank at the local station? Yes? – Well, that’s because it is. The price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas, which plummeted to decades-long lows under Donald Trump, has now risen by 37 cents per gallon since Election Day as traders drive up the price for crude oil in anticipation of the Biden/Harris socialist policy onslaught:

Thanks, Democrats! You voted for this!

The Babylon Bee just keeps getting better. – Here, America’s best satirists (eat your heart out, Saturday Night Live) perfectly capture the public pronouncements of the little menace to society, Anthony Fauci:

Here’s an excerpt from this hilarious story:

WASHINGTON, DC—In a development no one saw coming, Dr. Anthony Fauci has again changed his recommendation about what to do with masks by consulting his tested and proven “Wheel of SCIENCE.”

“Now I know it confuses people when the science changes so quickly, as if we are just making all this up as we go along,” explained Dr. Fauci from his bunker full of neckties. “That’s why I developed this handy ‘Wheel of SCIENCE’ for us to spin every morning, so people can really see that this isn’t just me saying whatever pops into my head!”

“Now– let’s give this puppy a spin!” he exclaimed as he gave the wheel a mighty turn.

“What will it be today, gang?” asked a giddy Dr. Fauci. “‘Masks Cause Bladder Cancer?’ ‘Eating Dirt Prevents Halitosis?’ hmmm…”

The dial slowed, clicking just past “Cover Your Kids With Grocery Bags” and finally came to rest on: “Attach A Live Octopus Directly To Your Face.”

“There it is, folks!  Science has proven that the best way to prevent COVID transmission is to affix a live octopus directly over your mouth, nose, and probably eyes. I’ve been keeping this little guy here for this very moment,” said Dr. Fauci, reaching into an aquarium and plastering the surprised sea creature’s tentacles directly onto his face.

[End]

Go read the rest. It gets even funnier.

If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying close enough attention. – In a bit of positive news, Americans continue to exercise their gun rights in record numbers. Barack Obama used to be the all-time record-holder for stimulating sales of guns and ammo in America, until the COVID-19 pandemic and the government’s brutish response to it, along with last summer’s endless BLM/Antifa rioting, came along, . But China Joe Biden is threatening to surpass all previous records as his barrage of onerous executive orders and radical leftism continue to sow a rising level of fear among the public.

January, in fact, was the busiest month on record for gun and  background checks in the U.S., a clear indicator that the month likely also saw record sales of guns and bullets.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

Gun background checks in the United States shattered monthly records in January, blowing past the four million mark for the first time in U.S. history.

Americans underwent nearly 4,318,000 checks for firearm purchases last month, handily defeating December’s then-record of nearly 3,940,000 checks and recording over four million checks in one month for the first time in the 23-year history of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The four-million-plus checks performed in January total nearly 11% of the roughly 39,700,000 checks performed in the entirety of 2020. January of last year, for comparison, saw just over 2,700,000 background checks nationwide.

Last year’s record checks came amid sustained national unrest driven by often-violent protests led by Black Lives Matter in numerous cities nationwide, as well as record-high unemployment and economic devastation stemming from COVID-19 lockdowns and closures.

[End]

The establishment elite have over the past year destroyed Americans’ right to free speech, our right of free assembly, our right to go to church and our right against unreasonable search and seizure. But they have not yet been able to destroy our right to keep and bear arms, or to go out and buy a bunch more of them at the local gun shop. When they make their inevitable effort in the next few years to send out soldiers to confiscate everyone’s guns – and believe me, that’s coming, and sooner than you expect – they’ll find that the only way to do that will be to pry them out of the cold, dead hands of millions of ordinary citizens.

Good luck with that.

Still Waiting for That $2,000 Check? Biden’s Gonna Send You Masks Instead.

Mad because you haven’t gotten your $2,000 COVID check yet? – No worries, the Biden Administration is going to send you a bunch of 25 cent COVID masks instead.

Isn’t that great?

Even better, the Biden administration is going to mandate that you keep wearing your handy 25 cent masks into perpetuity, even after you’ve had one of the array of probably-not-very-effective “vaccines”!

Yes, friends, this is where we are headed, and if you had been reading DBDailyUpdate for the past 10 months, you will know that that is where we have always been headed with this thing. Your DC Swamp UniParty elites don’t want you free and happy, and never really have. They want you masked up, cowering in fear in your homes, subjecting yourselves to whatever medication they wish to administer to you, all in the name of keeping you “safe.”

As for the $2,000 checks they promised you last fall and early winter, those have already been chopped down to $1,400 in China Joe’s preferred $1.9 trillion fake “stimulus” bill, and make up less than 1/3rd of the total price tag of that bill. And guess what? Even though the Democrats have majorities in both houses of congress and could easily pass this atrocity of a bill into law today, the latest word from Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan is that they think they might – might – be able to get the bill done sometime in March. Which of course means that the real plan is to cut that $1,400 check amount down even further before anything gets done, if it ever really does.

See, the DC Swamp UniParty elites also don’t want you having too much money in your pocket, because money tends to increase mobility, and mobility tends to increase a person’s desire for freedom. Which gets us back to why they prefer you to be cowering in fear in your homes.

A population that is cowering in fear in its homes is much easier to control than a population that is free to move around and has a little money in its pocket. A population that is free to move around also tends to be free to get together to share ideas that the UniParty elites do not approve of. You know, ideas like questioning why it is that if the Biden people claim to want to “follow the science,” then why aren’t our kids back in school and why aren’t the teachers we pay to teach them back in school with them?

It’s a great question: The “scientists” at the Centers for Disease Control have advised everyone in the Biden administration that your kids should all be back in school and the teachers should be there with them, yet Biden himself again yesterday refused to commit to getting the kids and teachers back into the schools.

Or hey, if we’re following the “science,” why does the head “scientist,” Anthony Fauci, say on one day that we all ought to be wearing two masks instead of one, and then the very next day admit that there really isn’t any “science” or “data” that indicates that’s a good idea? Or dang, if we’re following the “science,” then why haven’t our governors ended their bizarre, ineffective and brutal tactic of keeping all the restaurants and bars closed, given that states like California and New York and Illinois and New Jersey whose Democrat governors have religiously clung to that failed tactic have a far worse record related to the virus than do states like Florida and South Dakota and other states whose Republican governors have rejected it?

The answers to these questions and so many more should be obvious to everyone by now: This is all a political exercise that has nothing to do with anything resembling “science.” This is all about control, and you are the ones being controlled. This is all about preparing the population of the United States to meekly accept the “Great Reset,” in which COVID fear becomes the rationale for implementing brutish fascism/socialism all over the world, something the Biden administration is already well down the road to getting done as we all cower in fear in our homes, many of us wearing our masks (and perhaps two) as we cook lunch or take a whiz.

So, you wanted a $2,000 check? Tough. The Biden people are going to send you masks, which have become the great symbol of your own imprisonment, instead.

This is no different than late 18th Century France. The masses don’t have enough money and want the government to provide more?

Tough.

Let them wear masks.

That is all.

How Many COVID Masks are Enough COVID Masks?

How many masks are enough masks? – Ok, well, get ready for the coming Biden plan to mandate that everyone wear more than one mask. It has become manifestly obvious over the past week that the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration has no other real plan for dealing with COVID-19 other than letting the natural course of the virus play out and take full credit for it, but the natural impulse of any Democrat politician when faced with an issue is to “do something,” regardless of whether what they do is productive or not.

Early this week, the little menace to society and highest paid federal employee Anthony Fauci signaled what “doing something” will mean when he told an interviewer that “two masks are more effective than one.” Naturally, the corrupt news media that worships at Fauci’s tiny throne has taken the little menace’s latest sage advice and run with it.

From a story at MSN.com:

Dr. Anthony Fauci endorses double-masking.

US health officials have long been advising people to wear a cloth mask with three layers of protection, or a surgical or N95 mask, to protect against the novel coronavirus.

But some people, including many at the inauguration, have been doubling up on masks – layering them to create an extra barrier of protection.

According to Fauci, it’s a good idea, particularly in light of more transmissible variants of the coronavirus, first identified in the UK and South Africa.

Read More:Two face masks may be more protective than wearing one, but it depends on the type and fit

“If you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective,” Fauci said on NBC News’ TODAY. “That’s the reason why you see people either double masking or doing a version of an N-95.”

How to double-mask

The type of mask you double up on will affect the level of protection it provides.

[End]

You seriously could never make this stuff up. But wait, it only gets better.

Check out this report from nitwit Contessa Brewer run on CNBC yesterday:

Yes, folks, the media/Democrat approved talking points are now attempting to move the goal posts to wearing not only two masks at the same time, but three! Hell, why stop there? Why not four? Doesn’t “common sense” dictate that four would be more effective than three? Or why not five?

Indeed, why not just go out and buy a pack of 25 of those blue disposable things and put them all on at once? Nevermind that you’ll end up dying from oxygen deprivation/carbon dioxide poisoning – at least you’ll be safer from the dreaded COVID monster!

If you think the multiple masking farce is absurd, just wait until all the anti-fossil fuels alarmists finally figure out that every one of the masks being sold today is made largely from fibers and materials derived at chemicals and plastics plants from petroleum products. EVERY ONE OF THEM.

So, if we’re all going to double-mask or triple-mask or quadruple-mask, at what point does the waste disposal issue begin to ovewhelm the fake COVID-19 safety issue? Which Democrat/media-driven fantasy retains dominance over the other?

It’s a great question. I just cannot wait to see the answer.

Tuesday News Roundup: Kyrsten Sinema Might Save the Republic; NYTimes Goes Low on Pipelines

Fun Energy Fact of the Day. – Amy Harder at Axios reported yesterday that “Oil, natural gas and coal accounted for 81% of the world’s energy consumption in 1990. Thirty years later — in 2020 — that figure dropped to 80%, mainly because of the pandemic, according to the International Energy Agency.”

Remember also that that unchanged percentage comes after many trillions of dollars have been invested in capital and subsidies for wind and solar development globally.

Axios didn’t report this, but it is a reality that, 30 years from now, in 2050, most truly scholarly projections on global energy consumption see that percentage remaining largely unchanged. Though wind, solar and other alternative energy sources will continue to be subsidized with more and more trillions, they won’t be scalable enough to account for just the growth in energy demand over the next 30 years, much less start to displace the role fossil fuels and nuclear will continue to play in the world’s energy supply.

That’s reality. What you see in the corrupt news media and coming from politicians and the Global Church of Climate Change every day is fantasy.

This concludes your Fun Energy Fact of the Day.

Why bother cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline when you can just blow it up? – That’s the question recently advocated by The New York Times. Not kidding.

To advance that idea, the Times recently provided its readers with a glowing review of a book titled “HOW TO BLOW UP A PIPELINE” by someone named Andreas Malm. I swear I do not make this stuff – who could?

Here’s an excerpt from that book review:

“To say that the signals have fallen on the deaf ears of the ruling classes of this world would be an understatement. If these classes ever had any senses, they have lost them all,” writes Malm, a Swedish professor of human ecology and climate change activist, in his compelling but frustrating treatise.

A proportionate and rational response, Malm argues, should be to target fossil fuel infrastructure: Destroy fences around a power plant; occupy pipeline routes, as protesters did for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines; at coal mines or similar sites, set up climate camps, which Malm believes are effective as laboratories for activism and for shutting things down by putting bodies on the line.

He also advocates powerfully against despair and powerlessness. One of the most satisfying parts of his book comes when he brutally dispatches with “climate fatalists” like Jonathan Franzen, who argue that we should all just give up. “Climate fatalism is for those on top,” Malm writes. “Its sole contribution is spoilage.”

So Malm wants us to fight back (though I should add that there aren’t any actual instructions here about how to blow anything up).

[End]

Don’t blow me up, folks, I’m just the messenger.

Every time you get to thinking our corrupt, Nazi-style news media could not possibly get any worse than it already is, they go and prove you wrong.

Democrat definition of “Unity”: “You shut up and conform to my way of thinking.”

*sigh*

In Texas, this is what we call a smelly fresh load of horse manure:

Speaking of things you just could not ever make up if it wasn’t already reality… – Check this out:

That’s right: Anthony Fauci, the little menace to American society who has outright admitted to repeatedly lying to the American people in order to manipulate their behavior and government policy throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, is in fact the single most highly-compensated employee of the federal government.

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

Germs pay.

Dr. Anthony Fauci made $417,608 in 2019, according to Open the Books, a government watchdog group.

The annual salary for Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease, makes the highest paid doctor in the federal government and the highest paid out of all 4 million federal employees,” Forbes reported.

In fact, Fauci’s salary is more than the president of the United States’ annual $400,000 pay.

Fauci, now President Biden’s chief medical adviser, will make $2.5 million if he keeps his government job through 2024, which marks the end of the administration’s first term. The projected income does not factor in raises.

Forbes also reports Fauci made $3.6 million from 2010 to 2019. Since 2014, His pay increased from $335,000 to the current $417,608.

[End]

Holy crap.

Can Kyrsten Sinema save the Republic? – I know that sounds like just the most absurd question you’ve ever seen posed in your entire life, but bear with me here.

As we all know, one of the main goals of the radical left that forms the vast majority of the Democrat voter base now is to eliminate the senate filibuster, a move they consider to be the key facilitator to allow the passage of their full Marxist/fascist agenda into law. With a 50/50 split in Senate membership, the end of the filibuster would mean that Kamala Harris could provide the tie-breaking votes on all manner of radical legislation designed to destroy the very fabric of our nation and turn it into the collective utopia the deranged nitwits on the left have always dreamed of.

Flaccid West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin has already said he does not support ending the filibuster, but we have seen so many times that he holds no firm positions that Chuck Schumer cannot bully him into changing. Besides, a single Democrat dissenter can easily be offset by a RINO tag-team consisting of Mitt Romney, Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski on any given issue. Thus, Manchin’s tenuous posturing becomes essentially meaningless.

But yesterday, Manchin got himself a dancing partner in the Senior Senator from Arizona, Sen. Sinema. When the hacks at the Washington Post inquired about the Senator’s position on the filibuster, her spokesperson firmly replied “Kyrsten is against eliminating the filibuster, and she is not open to changing her mind about eliminating the filibuster.”

From a story at The Daily Caller:

Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema will not support eliminating the filibuster and her mind cannot be changed, according to a spokesperson.

As Democrats now control the House, Senate and White House, there has been discussion about possibly voting to eliminate the filibuster. Abolishing the filibuster would allow any legislation to pass with a simple majority. With Sinema coming out against abolishing the filibuster, it makes it highly unlikely it could happen, as Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin has also said he will not vote to do so.

“Kyrsten is against eliminating the filibuster, and she is not open to changing her mind about eliminating the filibuster,” a spokesperson for Sinema told the Washington Post on Monday.

[End]

Now, pessimists will no doubt contend that Sinema’s a Democrat, and all Democrat politicians are inveterate liars, a contention this is manifestly true. Democrat politicians have no choice but to lie on most issues since their positions on them have zero basis in truth, data or reality.

But Senator Sinema repeatedly proven to be a different kind of Democrat to some extent, and has become a sort of Tulsi Gabbard of the Senate, a leftwing Democrat who actually still loves the country and holds respect for its institutions, the rarest of rare animals in Washington, DC.

Who knows if Sinema will hold firm on her stance in the face will no doubt be a campaign of threats and intimidation to come from Chuck Schumer and the party’s lunatic leftist base. But this one bears watching and if she does continue to resist pressure, having support from a colleague might help Manchin grow a bit of a spine on the matter as well.

All we can do is hope.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Biden Hates Unions and Democrat Governors Suddenly Decide to Reopen

Remember when Democrats claimed to support union jobs? – Well, those days are gone, as the former heavy influence of the unions on Democrats has been completely overwhelmed by the influence and money from the “climate change” lobby. No better proof of that changed dynamic has ever been offered than with Joe Biden’s cancellation of the cross-border permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline last week, an act that will ultimately cost as many as 10,000 union jobs.

But that is far from the only cost of this rash and unprecedented act of executive fiat. From a story at Forbes.com:

The Keystone XL project represents an overall $8 billion investment by TC Energy, the company which owns and operates the Keystone Pipeline System that moves large volumes of crude oil throughout the middle section of the United States and southern Canada. Several hundred miles of the planned 1,200 mile Keystone XL expansion have already been constructed and placed into the ground, including, ironically, the section of the line that crosses the U.S./Canadian border. Upwards of $3 billion of that overall $8 billion investment have already been committed and now represents a sunk cost at the whim of a new President, a very dangerous precedent for any administration to set.

President Biden’s rash decision also puts thousands of union jobs at risk, representing $2.2 billion in lost wages. Keystone XL already employs about 2,000 workers, including members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices, the Teamsters and other major unions. All told, the plan for full construction of Keystone XL would employ as many as 10,000 union workers through its completion.

Barring a successful challenge to Biden’s order, all of those jobs are gone, noted without regret by Buttigeig and his advice that the workers simply seek other employment.

Gone also will be the $1.7 billion TC energy plans to invest in real, actual new clean energy capacity between now and 2030 to provide all of the power the Keystone XL would consume, along with the thousands of direct jobs that investment would produce. According to a TC Energy fact sheet, Indigenous communities along the pipeline’s corridor will also be hard hit: “Indigenous communities lose hundreds of millions of dollars, including more than $1 billion in intergenerational opportunities for equity ownership in KXL that will help them fight poverty and build schools, hospitals, and other essential services.”

[End]

Wonder how many Democrat voters knew they were voting for all of that when they cast their ballots for China Joe?

We have a new president now, so all of those Democrat governors who have imposed brutal lockdowns on their people are suddenly figuring out that those were a bad idea. – First it was Andrew Cuomo, who suddenly decided to start reopening his state’s economy now that Donald Trump has been safely disposed of. Now we are seeing a rush of despicable Democrat governors who have killed hundreds of thousands of small businesses and destroyed millions of jobs suddenly deciding to follow suit.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Michigan Gov. Herr Gretchen Whitmer are the latest lying Democrats to join in the reopening parade.

From a story at DailyWire:

Like clockwork, another Democrat governor who placed severe restrictions on their state has begun easing lockdowns now that President Joe Biden was inaugurated.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday that Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) has lifted some coronavirus restrictions in Chicago, allowing restaurants and bars that serve food to reopen for indoor services at 25% capacity.

“Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s health team officially gave the green light Saturday for restaurants and most bars across Chicago and suburban Cook County to invite customers back inside for indoor service,” the outlet reported. “A day after officials said both regions were ‘on track’ for limited reopening, the city and Cook County suburbs saw their coronavirus infection rates improve for a third straight day to officially move from Tier 2 to Tier 1 of the state’s COVID-19 mitigation plan.”

[End]

Here’s an excerpt from a story about Herr Whitmer from the Chicago Tribune:

Michigan restaurants and bars can reopen for indoor dining at 25% capacity and with a 10 p.m. curfew starting Feb. 1, and concessions can resume at casinos, movie theaters and stadiums, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Friday.

The state health department’s coronavirus restrictions were loosened again amid a continued drop in cases and hospitalizations. They will be effective for three weeks, through Feb. 21.

The Democratic governor announced last week that restaurants would likely be able to serve dine-in customers beginning Feb. 1 after a two-and-a-half month ban.

“While we must remain vigilant and cautious, we can lift some protocols that were previously in place,” she said. “I know this pandemic has hurt our restaurant owners, our restaurant workers and all of their families. I want to thank those that made incredible sacrifices and did their part.”

Health and Human Services Director Robert Gordon’s order limits capacity to 25% — lower than the 50% ceiling that was in effect from June to November — with a maximum of 100 people. Bars and restaurants must close by 10 p.m. and collect customers’ contact information for tracing purposes.

Thus do these despicable Democrat brutes prove what we’ve known all along: That these lockdowns and social/economic destruction have had literally nothing to do with “science” or “data,” and everything to do with soulless politics. If there were any real justice in the world, all of these Democrat governors would be forced to inject themselves with the virus they have wielded as a political tool and denied health care services to address it.

They are without question the very worst people in the world.

Speaking of the very worst people in the world… – Hey, let’s not leave out the little Menace to American Society, Anthony Fauci, from our list of the very worst people in the world. Fauci, after all, was the enabler of all of the actions these Democrat governors took to destroy the economy and people’s lives for purely political purposes, always faithfully providing them cover with his constantly-shifting narrative related to the China virus.

Fauci was able to execute this task through his constant appearances on CNN and MSNBC, during which the talking head fake journalists invariably lobbed him a series of softball questions vetted in advance. This week, Fauci celebrated the opportunity to be the person designated by the DC Swamp to announce America’s re-joining the World Health Organization, the corrupt international body that enabled the globalization of the China Virus in the first place.

As a poke in the eye to every American who has lost a job, lost a business or suffered with the effects of the virus the WHO helped to deliver to us, Fauci actually “credited the organization for its “relentless” work in fighting the coronavirus during a WHO executive board meeting Thursday.” He also went on to add insult to injury when he “praised the WHO for rallying scientific communities to accelerate the development of vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics; its regular press briefings; and for providing “vital supplies” to dozens of countries.”

Finally, to give his week of abject mendacity a perfect coda, the Little Menace appeared on MSNBC for about the 1,000th time in the last 10 month and whined to host Rachel Maddow that he had been “blocked” from appearing on her show by the Trump administration:

You could never make these people up if they didn’t already exist. It’s a waste of time to even try.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: What Did Pelosi and McConnell Know and When Did They Know It?

Let’s start with a little DC Swamp humor found on Twitter yesterday:

Image may contain: 2 people, closeup, text that says 'D 1 5 MANURE WOMANURE'

It’s just perfect, really.

Coverage of the DC Swamp UniParty’s second sham impeachment of President Donald Trump can be found here and here.

The Little Menace to Society pushes the goal posts even further down the field. – If you’re planning any actual vacation trips or attending events at the local theater anytime in 2021, you might want to cool your heels on that action.

The little menace to American society Anthony Fauci is already pushing the next virus:

Well, of course. The “new strain” of the virus supposedly imported from England hasn’t taken hold of the public’s imagination, so now Fauci switches to the tactic of claiming America has somehow developed a completely unique strain of its own.

Just accept it: The Swamp wants to keep you cowering in your homes and wearing masks forever. This madness will not end until it is ended by force. And one of the myriad disastrous consequences of the fraudulent election we’ve just experienced is that the people who want to keep you in that sorry state will soon be in control of the armed forces of the United States.

It’s cleanup time at Twitter, everyone! – A week after his company coordinated in monopolistic fashion with other Big Tech giants to de-platform President Donald Trump and destroy Parler, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was out on the hustings trying to do some half-assed cleanup because Twitter’s stock is tanking.

From a story at DailyWire:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”

Dorsey’s remarks come after the company has taken a hit in its value since banning the president last week, following a riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter,” Dorsey wrote. “Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”

“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” he continued. “Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”

Dorsey claimed that the company did not coordinate with other tech companies with its decision to ban the president and that other companies either made their own choices or “were emboldened by the actions of others.”

[End]

All of that is, of course, an outright lie, especially the part about not coordinating with the other Big Tech firms. This is just the CEO of a major corporation reading the talking points handed to him by his enormous staff of talking points monkeys in an effort to prevent the company from continuing to bleed billions of dollars in market value every day.

Sadly, he’ll probably succeed in that effort.

I’d rather have a prostate exam than watch this:

Futile Gesture of the Week Award goes to…

Talk about a waste of time and energy – that effort has about as much chance of succeeding as this year’s Houston Rockets.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder – Just a reminder that, on January 5, the day before the riot took place at the U.S. Capitol when the small contingent of Capitol Police guarding the building were overwhelmed by a crowd of thousands, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser did this:

Oh.

So, as you continue to hear and see the corrupt news media claim that President Trump delayed calling out the National Guard to help secure the Capitol, know that the communist Democrat Mayor of the City had specifically and publicly discouraged making any such move just 24 hours earlier.

Everyone in the nation’s capitol knew that upwards of a million people were going to descend on the city on January 6 as congress debated whether or not to accept the clearly fraudulent electoral vote, and that professional agitators would certainly be in their midst. The FBI and Department of Justice admitted on Monday that they had been monitoring social media platforms and were aware in advance of plans by some agitators on both the left and the right to mount an effort to storm the Capitol. As is the habit of the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it chose to do nothing more than send out the most rudimentary, standard warnings to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials.

There was no reason whatsoever for the Capitol building to have been left so lightly-guarded, other than the Mayor of DC’s refusal to beef up the Capitol Police in advance. We do not know right now if Mayor Bowser had been made aware of the FBI’s warning before January 6 or not, nor do we know what Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi knew in advance of the riot.

Given that Pelosi has now staged a second impeachment scam based on the riot, and McConnell has expressed his own support of that effort, it is crucial that we find out whether they were warned in advance of the threat and chose to do nothing to prevent it, since that in and of itself might amount to at best an act of criminal negligence.

But you can be sure that it will be a cold day in hell before anyone at the FBI or DOJ will deliver that information to the public. After all, the interests of the DC Swamp UniParty are paramount. You little people can go pound sand.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Fauci Pushes More COVID Fascism and Tapper Takes Ossoff to Task

Jon Ossoff Blows Off Jake Tapper's Challenge To Claim That ...

 

This actually happened in the U.S. House of Representatives on Sunday:

For lunch today, the congressional cafeteria beneath the Longworth Building will no doubt be serving “ra-men” and “ra-women” soup.

Hooboy. It’s gonna be a long year.

Senator Ted Cruz is really getting good with this Twitter stuff. – Here, he captures the reason why the seasonal flu has suddenly ceased to exist in the era of COVID-19, according to the CDC:

No doubt, Creepy Uncle China Joe Potato Head Biden will be taking full credit for this seasonal miracle during his inaugural address.

Meanwhile, the little menace to society continues to advance COVID fascism in the United States. – Anthony Fauci was on TV yet again on Sunday, because of course he was, and he used this appearance to work to normalize the concept of a President Joe Potato Head Biden issuing a highly-illegal national lockdown order along the lines of what communist Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom has done in California:

Here’s an excerpt from that Daily Wire article:

“Are we looking at a campaign when President-elect Biden becomes president, are we going to need to do another 15 to 30 days, stop the spread, maybe do a partial lockdown — between that issue and obviously what’s happening now?” NBC News host Chuck Todd asked. “And it looks like hospitals — they were overwhelmed in November. Dr. Fauci, what’s going to happen at the end of January?”

“Yeah. Well, I hope we don’t have to do the lockdown because of the — we all know, Chuck, how much Covid-19 fatigue there is of people just really being worn down with this,” Fauci responded. “But we certainly need to enhance and make more uniform our public health measures. President-elect Biden has called for 100 days of everybody wearing a mask uniformly throughout the country. That’s really a good start.”

“The idea about locking down is something that you might have to do, but you want to avoid,” Fauci continued. “In certain areas of the country, such as in California, which is really being stressed with regard to the hospital beds and the personnel who are really getting exhausted with the number of cases that are coming in, you may have to have, and they already have decided, on some form of lockdown in specific areas of the state or specific regions of the country. So that’s not out of the question. We hope we don’t have to do it countrywide, because we feel that if you adhere to the public health measures, you can turn things around short of a uniform lockdown.”

[End]

And this, in a nutshell, is why Anthony Fauci is such a clear and present menace to American society. China Joe obviously plans to implement a national lockdown shortly after being installed into the presidency – he’s made that crystal clear. But he also knows that no president has the constitutional authority to do any such thing short of declaring a national emergency and implementing martial law.

So, Joe Potato Head needs the imprimatur of Fauci so that he can use COVID and “science” as the justification for taking such a dramatic step. Bingo, Fauci appears on MSNBC and a perfectly compliant Chuck Todd feeds him the pre-vetted question, giving the little menace the opening to recite is pre-vetted answer.

Because science.

For more – much more – on how the globalist left is using COVID to incrementally steal Americans’ freedoms and advance the cause of globalism, read the separate piece I posted earlier today.

There’s an “election” in Georgia tomorrow, and I’m betting the results are pre-ordained. – Some of you may have noticed that CNN’s Jake Tapper was pretending to be an actual “journalist” in his interview with Democrat Georgia senate candidate John Ossoff. During the course of that interview, Tapper called Ossoff to task for his blatantly false, repeated claim that incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is running against Democrat lunatic Raphael Warnock, was knowingly campaigning with a member of the Ku Klux Klan:

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

CNN host Jake Tapper called out Democratic Senate candidate Jon Ossoff on Sunday for his false attacks on incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is running against Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock.

Ossoff’s attacks on Loeffler, falsely claiming that she has been “campaigning” with a member of the Ku Klux Klan, was so categorically false that left-leaning CNN ran a fact-check report on the claim last week.

“This is false,” CNN ruled. “A former member of the KKK took a photo with Loeffler while she was campaigning earlier this month. Loeffler’s campaign said the senator did not know who the man was and would have removed him from the event had she known. This is not, at all, the same as ‘campaigning with a klansman,’ as Ossoff claimed. Politicians often take pictures with people they don’t know.”

CNN noted that there was “no evidence” that Loeffler recognized or sought the support of the man in the picture. Loeffler’s campaign condemned the man, saying, “Kelly had no idea who that was, and if she had she would have kicked him out immediately because we condemn in the most vociferous terms everything that he stands for.”

Tapper pressed Ossoff about the claim during an interview on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” which comes just two days before election day in Georgia.

[End]

Meanwhile, as all of this was taking place, Ossoff’s opponent, incumbent Sen. David Perdue, was sitting at home after testing positive for COVID-19 a few days ago.

So, the question becomes, why are CNN and Democrat-toady Tapper suddenly singling out John Ossoff for a rare “fact check” of a fellow traveler on this particular false claim? I mean, every Democrat candidate for office in America makes outrageously false claims on each and every day – outrageous lies are the sole basis for leftism in this country, after all.

While CNN has taken up gobs of air time excoriating Ossoff for this specific claim, it has simultaneously ignored the stories about Warnock’s serial spousal abuse and the horror stories coming from the boy’s camps he used to run.

So, why the glaring disparity in coverage of the respective Democrat candidates? Could it be because CNN and Tapper know the outcomes of these two runoff elections are already pre-determined? Could it be because Tapper and CNN’s producers understand that, even though they are pretending to pound on Ossoff, the video clips they’re able to show of Loeffler unsuspectingly shaking hands with the Klan guy who she didn’t know was a Klan guy do more damage to her than to Ossoff?

Ah, yes. The answer to both questions is almost certainly yes.

Because that is the America in which we live today. If you think this America is a nightmare, you’re not alone.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Dozen GOP Senators Will Oppose Electoral Cert and San Fran Nan Polices Pronouns

San Fran Nan goes full-on SJW. – San Fran Nan, under deep pressure from OAC and her gang of lunatic leftists, issued a new set of House rules on Saturday that in part will eliminate the use of proper pronouns that members can use to identify one another. In a sop to the transgender lobby, proper English language pronouns like “he” and “she” will be replaced with improper pronouns like “xe” and “they”.

No, I’m not making this up. From a story at Axios:

The U.S. House of Representatives is poised to rewrite its rules — swapping out male and female references like “he” and “she” for gender-neutral terms — in a diversity and inclusion push by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats that’s drawing scorn from Republicans.

Why it matters: The proposal comes as transgender and non-binary candidates are being elected around the country, progressives are gaining influence in the Democratic politics and U.S. schools and companies are adjusting policies and language to reflect society’s changing views on sexuality and gender identification.

  • The proposed changes were announced Friday ahead of two pivotal runoffs in Georgia on Jan. 5 to decide which party controls the Senate — and could stoke turnout among its supporters or opponents.
  • Members are expected to consider the package next week.

[End]

In a story at The Hill, House Rules Chair Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) is quoted as saying that “This proposal also shines a light on those struggling to get ahead in America today and ensures we remain focused on the most pressing issues facing our nation.” Yes, friends, it is now the official policy of the Democrat Party that pronouns are among the “most pressing issues facing our nation.”

Not Section 230; not getting our men and women out of myriad wars in foreign hell-holes; not a balloning debt or a fading economy or reining in out-of-control governors; the Democrat Party is focused on PRONOUNS.

Just so y’all know, my preferred pronouns are “Bubba” and “Tex.” Please be sure that you use them properly, as in “Bubba’s fixin’ to go fix that leaky sprinkler system,” or “Tex ate them enchiladas like a hog eats slop.”

Holy crap.

Fauci continues boiling the American frog. – The little menace to society was at it again on Saturday, moving the goal posts of Bill Gates’s globalist Great Reset down the field even further. This time, Fauci, in is own inimicable way, not so subtly suggests that it would be perfectly reasonable for the government to start issuing “COVID-19 vaccine passports” that would limit travel, school and attending public gathering to only those who have taken the shots, a step I had warned you about a week ago.

Gee, what a surprise.

From a story at the Daily Caller:

In an interview with Newsweek, Dr. Anthony Fauci floated the possibility that the coronavirus vaccine would be made mandatory for things like school and travel.

Dr. Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) explained that there could be a “possibility of introducing COVID-19 vaccine passports,” as well as making the vaccine mandatory at the local level, Newsweek reported.

When asked if there was the possibility that the vaccine could be mandatory for school Fauci explained, “That is possible but that’s something that’s mandated at the state level and city level. A citywide school system might require it in some cities but not other cities. And that’s what I mean by things not being done centrally but locally.”

[End]

As always, Fauci carefully couches his fascist ambitions as mere possibilities and as mandates that would have to be placed on the population by others. But the reality is that his role in the steadily-advancing assault on individual freedoms has been that of the “expert” stalking horse, the media darling who consistently awards his seal of approval for these anti-constitutional actions in advance so that the tyrant governors and mayors can claim their brutish treatment of their citizens is supported by “science.”

Herman Goering would have absolutely worshipped Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Josh Hawley gets some company. – I’ve spent the last several days praising Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley for being the first – and until yesterday, only – GOP senator to stand up and say he will challenge congress’s January 6 effort to certify the clearly fraudulent Electoral Vote. I couldn’t help wondering out loud why normally stalwart conservatives like Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Rand Paul and a handful of other GOP senators weren’t standing with Hawley and his defiance of Mitch McConnell’s “go along to get along” edict on the matter.

Well, yesterday, Sen. Cruz and 10 more Republican senators decided to finally step up and be counted among those who are properly disturbed by election theft happening all around them, further demanding the conduct of a “10-day emergency audit” of the vote. But interestingly, Senators Paul and Cotton are not among this Gang of 11.

From a story at The Hill:

Eleven Senate Republicans on Saturday announced that they will vote for objections to the Electoral College results Wednesday, when Congress convenes in a joint session to formally count the vote.

GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Ron Johnson (Wis.), James Lankford (Okla.), Steve Daines (Mont.), John Kennedy (La.), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) and Mike Braun (Ind.) and Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.), Bill Hagerty (Tenn.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.) said in a joint statement that they will vote against accepting the election results until there is a 10-day audit.

“Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” they said. “Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.

The senators didn’t say in their joint statement if they plan to object to the results from specific states, how they would divvy up those objections or if they would just vote in support of challenges to the Electoral College results if they reach the Senate.

[End]

Why Cotton or Paul are not among the now-dozen GOP senators willing to lodge a challenge is anyone’s guess, since neither has been asked or chosen to comment as far as I can tell. Regardless, you now have a dozen GOP senators and well over 100 members of the House who have figured out that the Trump support base, and thus, at least 80% of the GOP’s entire support base, is not going to be placated on this particular issue.

The fact that so many other GOP members of congress still haven’t figured that fact of life out says nothing good about the future of the Republican Party. Those folks are whistling past their own political graveyards.

That is all.

Some Predictions for 2021

I’m an optimist by nature. When you come from where I came from and end up where I’ve ended up in life, you almost could not be otherwise. And boy, that’s a good thing, given the year we have just been through and the year we all are facing in 2021.

Of all the times and places in world history to be born, I was born in 1956 in the United States of America. Not only that, I was born in Texas and have been blessed to live my entire life here. Folks, it don’t get no luckier than that. I was raised by two wonderful parents, have been married for 39 years to a wonderful, loving woman and have been blessed with two wonderful children and two wonderful granddaughters.

It’s important to take a step back and reflect on the blessings we’ve had in life as we end this bizarre and distressing year of 2020, because, as bad as the past 12 months have been, things could have always been worse. Looking ahead, we all should pray that 2021 doesn’t turn to 2020 and say, “hold my beer.”

Because things surely could get worse.

Unless something dramatic happens between now and January 20, the presidency will be assumed by China Joe Potato Head Biden, a life-long circus clown of a human being who has sold his soul – and America’s international interests – for money and who is now clearly and unambiguously suffering from the effects of advancing dementia. As bad as that sounds, we have to also hope and pray that he is somehow able to hold the office for four full years, because the alternative – his incoming Vice President, Kamala Harris – is a radical leftwing ideologue who would be even more dangerous to the nation’s future survival than China Joe is.

China Joe has gone about naming a pack of cabinet appointees whose politics range from radical leftist to full-on Marxist Alinskyite, and makes no bones about his plans to re-regulate every facet of your lives that he and Barack Obama had regulated before President Donald Trump came along and started rolling everything back. If you thought the regulatory barrage that came at you during Obama’s final two years in office was something to behold, well, trust me: You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Let’s go to the predictions…

Prediction #1: The cost of gasoline and electricity will begin to rise rapidly. Biden’s climate regulatory agenda, fracking bans and mindless foreign policy choices will make sure of that.

Prediction #2: The U.S. military will become involved in a new shooting conflict somewhere in the Middle East or North Africa during 2021. We were entangled in 7 such conflicts when the Obama/Biden administration came to an end, and you can be sure China Joe will be anxious to re-start the party. Biden policies targeting the rapid destruction of the U.S. domestic oil and gas industry will help to ensure this outcome, as our energy security diminishes and our dependence on Arab oil rises.

Prediction #3: We will all still be living under mask and social distancing mandates when 2021 comes to an end. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise: Once this freedom-destroying genie has been let out of the bottle, it won’t be going back in anytime soon. Anthony Fauci made this very promise earlier today, and you can be sure he will be leading China Joe around on a leash where COVID is concerned.

Besides, we now have this “new strain” of COVID that Fauci and his corrupt media friends can lord over us for the next 12 months, and as soon as we have 3 or 4 new vaccines for that one, yet another “new strain” will suddenly appear to start the cycle all over again.

Prediction #4: The reality of #3 above means that the rate of unemployment will be higher a year from now than it is today, and the economy will begin to contract at some point towards the beginning of the 2nd quarter, as the government’s ability to keep passing multi-trillion dollar relief bills fades away and the full impacts of all the job and business destruction taking place mainly in blue states start to really take hold.

Prediction #5: As China’s iron grip on the Biden presidency and most of congress becomes increasingly evident, Alec Baldwin’s white-bread wife Hilaria will stop pretending to affect a Spanish accent and learn to speak Mandarin instead.

Prediction #6: During an appearance on CNN next September, Bill Gates’s central processing unit will short circuit when the host asks him to vouch for the safety of one of the new COVID vaccines, causing sparks to fly from his ears and horns to grow from the top of his head. CNN and the rest of the corrupt news media will assure us all that this is perfectly normal and kill the story within a few hours. Twitter will immediately start banning anyone who shares clips from the video.

Prediction #7: During his inaugural address on January 20, China Joe Potato Head Biden will pause for non-existent applause from a non-existent audience 42 times, refer to Kamala Harris as “my good friend, Ella Fitzgerald,” and turn to Nancy Pelosi and ask her where his tapioca pudding has gone. Twitter will immediately ban anyone who shares clips from the video.

Prediction #8: In April it will be revealed that Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow have become engaged to be married, and America will cringe in unison in response. Twitter will immediately ban anyone who posts a tweet showing a photo of the couple as being against its community standards.

Prediction #9: Attorney General Andrew Cuomo will drop all charges against Ghislaine Maxwell on January 21. CNN and MSNBC will engage in a fierce bidding war to sign her up to be a paid contributor.

Prediction #10: AG Cuomo will fire Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham on January 22 and hold a national bonfire of all of Durham’s investigative files on the East lawn of the White House that evening. Neither CNN nor MSNBC will show any interest in signing Durham up to be a paid contributor.

Prediction #11: Kelly Loeffler will defeat that lunatic clown she’s running against in the January 5 runoff in Georgia, but Dominion Systems will ensure that John Ossoff prevails over Republican David Perdue in the other race. Ossoff will thus become the nation’s first hipster pajama boy U.S. Senator and will immediately try to convince his colleagues to let him open a Starbucks in the basement of the Capitol Building.

Prediction #12: The petition drive to force a recall election of California Gov. Gavin Newsom will succeed. However, California voters are such raging morons that they will just re-elect him all over again.

And finally…

Prediction #13: No later than June 1, China Joe Potato Head Biden will read a nationally-televised speech written for him by his elder-abusing handlers in which he mistakenly says he is being forced to resign from the United States Senate because he is suffering from detention. Twitter will immediately invoke a policy of banning any user who shares clips from the speech and that fat little bald guy at CNN will suffer stroke on his Sunday show in the midst of excoriating Fox News for repeatedly and falsely claiming that Biden was actually the President, not a Senator.

Because that’s the world we live in now, folks, like it or not.

Here’s wishing you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Be careful out there.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Rubio Slams Fauci and the FBI Fails America Yet Again in Nashville

The FBI is a raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence, part 6,354. – The Federalist’s Sean Davis captures it all right here in a single tweet:

So, the girlfriend of the Nashville bomber made the local FBI office aware that he was loading his RV with bombs a freaking year ago, and the FBI very predictably did…nothing. Just like it did with advance reports of too many school shooters and domestic terrorists to catalogue over the course of this 21st century. It is fair to say, in fact, that this exact narrative is the FBI’s standard procedure in such cases – the agency appears to be in the business of not just ignoring such potential “lone wolves” but cultivating them.

But hey, none of this should be surprising to anyone, given that the FBI is after all a part of the federal government. Yes, the only real solution for this would be for the Bureau to be completely dismantled from top to bottom and reinvented from the ground up. But that’s the case with the Department of Justice as a whole and pretty much every other bureau, agency and department in the DC Swamp.

And none of it will ever happen. Let’s be real here.

This happened in Georgia on Wednesday:

For a full report on the details, check out this report I posted yesterday evening.

Here’s an excerpt from it:

Speaking of movement on other fronts… – We may have had a possible game-changing moment take place in Georgia today, where a subcommittee of the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee held a formal hearing on election fraud that included live witness testimony and presentation of hard evidence.

One of the witnesses was analyst Jovan Pulitzer, a digital expert who explained to the Committee how all Dominion machines are in fact interconnected with the Internet despite the company’s consistent denials, and that he was in fact connected via computer to one such machine in Fulton County as he was speaking:

 

It is unlawful under Georgia law – and in most, if not all other states – for vote tabulating machines to be linked to the Internet or networked with one another.

[End]

Go read the rest. You’ll be glad you did. If there is any such thing as a potential “game changer” in the President’s efforts to reverse the clearly fraudulent outcome of this election, this could be it.

This happened last night, just in time to distract the public’s attention away from what is happening on the election fraud front:

Funny how that always seems to happen, huh? Unsurprisingly, what the Minneapolis Star Tribune refers to as “an angry crowd” gathered at the gas station where the shooting occurred. Gosh, wonder if BLM and Antifa have anything to do with the “crowd” being “angry”?

Here’s an excerpt from that StarTribune report:

Minneapolis police shoot, kill man during traffic stop

For much of the evening, a large police presence as well as an angry crowd were at the scene, a gas station near 36th Street and S. Cedar Avenue. Chief Medaria Arradondo said that witnesses reported the suspect fired first, and officers returned fire.

Minneapolis police shot and killed a man they say fired first during a traffic stop on the city’s south side Wednesday night.

Hours afterward, Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said he will release body camera footage of the shooting Thursday.

It was the first police killing in Minneapolis since the May 25 death of George Floyd at the hands of four since-fired police officers. Floyd’s death spurred protests and rioting that spread nationwide and prompted an intense, often bitter debate about the future of the Minneapolis Police Department.

After Wednesday night’s shooting, a crowd of about 100 protesters congregated near the scene and at times grew tense, shouting expletives and throwing snowballs at police. Later in the evening, protesters remained relatively peaceful as they gathered at a bonfire built in the street.

The shooting occurred as officers tried to stop the man, whom they described as a felony suspect, about 6:15 p.m. at the Holiday gas station at E. 36th Street and Cedar Avenue. Arradondo said witnesses reported that the suspect fired first, and that “police officers then exchanged gunfire with the suspects.” A woman also in the car was not hurt.

Arradondo said he would move quickly to release the footage, and he pleaded with protesters to remain peaceful and to allow the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which will take over the investigation, to do its work. He said his officers would respect protesters’ constitutionally protected right to freedom of speech but that “we cannot allow for destructive criminal behavior.”

[End]

Yeah, good luck with that, Chief. Expect this story to blow up today, as the corrupt news media tries to fan the flames in advance of January 6.

Here’s a thought. – How about we take that $140 million congress wants to sent to Pakistan for “gender studies” and allocate it to St. Jude’s hospitals to pay to help cure kids suffering with cancer instead?

Silly me.

Here’s a look at the line up of villains for the next four James Bond movies:

Think our national subservience to China is going to change anytime soon? – Well, think again:

But enough of that fun.

Marco Rubio did the nation a favor on Wednesday. – The Senator from Miami published an epic op/ed piece at the Fox News website in which he exposes Anthony Fauci for the menace to American society that he truly is.

Here is an excerpt from that piece:

Thanks to our news media’s monomaniacal obsession with President Trump, few have paid attention to an important interview that Dr. Anthony Fauci gave last week, in which he acknowledged that he selectively lied to the American public about the coronavirus and what was needed for our national recovery.

The story is straightforward. For most of this year, Dr. Fauci and other scientists in our public health establishment have been telling Americans that about 60 to 70 percent of the nation would need a vaccine in order for us to reach herd immunity and make the coronavirus a non-issue.

But, speaking with The New York Times, Dr. Fauci admitted that he believes the real number is in fact significantly higher — perhaps 75 to 90 percent — and he declined to be forthright because he felt the country wasn’t ready to hear it. Only now did he say that he feels he has the freedom to “nudge this up a bit” without discouraging the nation.

I am sure that Dr. Fauci — the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — made the decision to mislead with nothing but good intentions. However, let’s be clear about what he was doing: lying to the American people in order to manipulate their behavior.

The American people deserve the truth; they also deserve accountability. When elected representatives make decisions, they can be held responsible by the public. But when public health officials with decades of experience and leadership within our nation’s institutions short-circuit the political process and make these decisions themselves, they deny the American people that same opportunity — and to change course if desired.

Tuesday News Roundup: Portland Cops Beg for Help and America’s Great Reset is Coming

Here’s what happens when you defund the police. – We’ve seen examples from communist Democrat-run cities all over the country now. From New York to Los Angeles and from Minneapolis to Seattle, cities whose Democrat leaders have taken action to cut major chunks out of their police force budgets are very predictably seeing massive spikes in violent crimes as a result.

Things are no different in Portland, where the communist-Democrat city council cut $15 million of the police budget during the summer, even as violent riots were plaguing the city’s downtown district and surrounding neighborhoods. That action and the general lack of support for the Portland PD from communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler has led now to a spike in violent crimes and a growing exodus of officers from the Department.

Things have gotten so bad that the Portland PD is now resorting to begging for help from the general community to “break the cycle of violence” in the city.

From a story at DailyWire:

Portland, Oregon, police are begging residents of the city to help “break the cycle of violence” as the number of murders and shootings in the city have skyrocketed.

Portland has been home to violence for months, with an ongoing, nightly demonstration by “anti-fascist” elements, that has often resulted in significant property damage and multiple arrests. But now, the police say, the number of shootings and murders in the city 2020 are nearly double those of 2019, according to Fox News.

“At least 850 shootings have been reported in Portland as of Dec. 24, with 59 reported so far this month, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) statistics show. There were 33 shootings reported in December of last year,” Fox News notes. “As of Christmas Eve, this year’s shootings had surpassed last year’s by more than 116%, with 393 shootings reported in all of 2019, statistics show.”

The numbers have Portland police, who have been the target of one of the most aggressive efforts to defund and disband law enforcement anywhere in the country, pleading with the community to step in and provide support.

[End]

Man, who could have possibly seen any of that coming? Oh, wait…

Obviously, there is nothing about this that is funny other than Ted Wheeler’s personal clueless hipster demeanor. This is real life stuff, and real lives are being snuffed out in Portland and other Democrat cities due to these insane policy decisions. And make no mistake about this: Democrat politicians know the certain impacts of these insane policy choices, but make them anyway out of the insane belief that proper policing is inherently racist.

Put more bluntly, they are knowingly sacrificing the lives of thousands of Americans for purely political reasons. That’s the truth.

Hard question of the day. – Name a single country that taxes its citizens and sends the money to the United States of America.

Go ahead. I’ll wait.

News you will not see on CNN. – Last week, the corrupt news media ignored claims of spousal abuse by the wife of Georgia Democrat Senate nominee Raphael Warnock. This week, the corrupt news media will studiously ignore this story:

From a story at DailyWire:

A man came forward and went on the record on Monday about alleged abuse that he suffered as a 12-year-old while attending a church camp that was overseen by Reverend Raphael Warnock.

Anthony Washington, now 30, told The Washington Free Beacon that counselors allegedly threw urine on him and locked him outside of his cabin, forcing him to sleep outside overnight. Washington told the publication that what allegedly happened to him at Camp Farthest Out resulted in a 2003 lawsuit that he says led to a large financial settlement.

The Free Beacon reported:

Warnock has faced scrutiny over his 2002 arrest for allegedly obstructing a child abuse investigation by Maryland State Police that centered on the camp’s treatment of children. Washington’s account is buttressed by records from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, obtained by the Free Beacon earlier this month, which indicated that campers were routinely left unsupervised; staffers were not subject to required criminal background check; and at least five cases of child abuse or neglect were brought against the camp’s director, who was ultimately forced to resign.

[End]

This is the quality of human being Georgia Democrats want to put in the U.S. Senate. Ugh.

The precursor to China’s “Social Credit System.” – Coming to America soon as part of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset, which China Joe Potato Head Biden supports: Within the next year, you will find yourself unable to travel via public transportation or attend theaters and other large public gatherings unless you can show proof that you have been vaccinated for COVID-19.

Whenever anyone would predict this barely 9 months ago, corrupt mainstream news reporters and talking heads would call them “alarmists” and “conspiracy theorists.” Yesterday, the corrupt hacks at CNN published a story about the coming new requirement that lays it all out as if it’s all just the most normal thing in the world.

Here’s an excerpt from that story, headlined…

If you want to travel next year, you may need a vaccine passport

San Francisco (CNN Business)Now that coronavirus vaccines are starting to roll out in the US and abroad, many people may be dreaming of the day when they can travel, shop and go to the movies again. But in order to do those activities, you may eventually need something in addition to the vaccine: a vaccine passport application.

Several companies and technology groups have begun developing smartphone apps or systems for individuals to upload details of their Covid-19 tests and vaccinations, creating digital credentials that could be shown in order to enter concert venues, stadiums, movie theaters, offices, or even countries.
The Common Trust Network, an initiative by Geneva-based nonprofit The Commons Project and the World Economic Forum, has partnered with several airlines including Cathay Pacific, JetBlue, Lufthansa, Swiss Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic, as well as hundreds of health systems across the United States and the government of Aruba.
The CommonPass app created by the group allows users to upload medical data such as a Covid-19 test result or, eventually, a proof of vaccination by a hospital or medical professional, generating a health certificate or pass in the form of a QR code that can be shown to authorities without revealing sensitive information. For travel, the app lists health pass requirements at the points of departure and arrival based on your itinerary.
“You can be tested every time you cross a border. You cannot be vaccinated every time you cross a border,” Thomas Crampton, chief marketing and communications officer for The Commons Project, told CNN Business. He stressed the need for a simple and easily transferable set of credentials, or a “digital yellow card,” referring to the paper document generally issued as proof of vaccination.

[End]

Hey, CNN, who’s the “conspiracy theorist” now?

As I have said for 9 months now, every restriction on our daily lives, every mandate a state, federal or local politician, every pronouncement from the little menace Anthony Fauci has been designed to normalize enhanced government control of our daily lives. None of these things has anything to do with controlling the virus; none of them are based on anything resembling “science” or “data.”

It’s all about government control.

Think about it this way: If any of these restrictions were about a science-based or data-supported effort to control the virus, why is it that the state with the most strenuous restrictions – California – is suffering the most severe outbreak? Why is it that the state with the least strenuous restrictions – South Dakota – is experiencing the least severe outbreak?

This is all about government control, and if China Joe Potato Head is installed in the presidency, our freedoms could be irrevocably lost.

PSA: If you clear your sidewalk of snow in your bathrobe, using a flamethrower while drinking a beer and smoking a cigar, you might be a redneck.

Thursday News Roundup: Trump Pardons Stone and Manafort, Fauci Admits He’s Been Lying

More Trump pardons. – 26 more altogether were issued last night as the President now appears to be winding his administration down despite all of his public messaging about the theft of the presidency by the Democrats and corrupt Republicans in coordination with Dominion Systems. In addition to the 26 pardons, the President issued commutations to three more individuals.

Included in last night’s pardons are Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, two Trump loyalists whose rights were heinously abused by the Mueller Gestapo as a part of the slow-rolling coup d’etat that held the country hostage for 20 long months. The full list of the beneficiaries of these pardons and commutations can be found at this link.

Naturally, the Trump-hating corrupt news media is going berserk this morning over the pardons of Manafort and Stone. Cool.

Eric Trump tweeted this out last night – it seems especially appropriate here:

Image

Here are two suggestions for the President’s next pardons: Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.

Do it, Mr. President. Just do it.

Sassy Ben weighs in. – Sassy Ben Sasse let it be known he does not approve of these pardons, oh no, not at all:

Because of course he doesn’t approve. He’s an effete RINO, a terminally annoying clown who follows Mitt Romney around on a leash, apparently.

Imagine what a hissy fit Sassy Ben will toss if and when the President pardons Snowden and Assange. It would be glorious to behold.

Again, do it, Mr. President. Just do it.

Another Trump veto. – President Trump also issued a veto on Wednesday, though not of the $2.4 trillion in Covid/pork spending congress passed on Monday. Those bills remain in limbo at the moment.

The Trump veto yesterday relates to the $740 billion defense spending bill congress passed earlier this month with veto-proof majorities in both houses of congress. At the time of its passage, the President warned congress that he would veto the bill due to the fact that it does not contain repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. So, yesterday he followed through on that promise, as he pretty much always does, and corrupt reporters and politicians expressed their shock. Because they’re all either lying scumbags or morons.

Sorry, I know that’s harsh, but it’s the truth.

Speaking of lying liars who lie for a living… – I give you Anthony Fauci. The little menace to American society is in the news again this morning. Check out this tweet from the New York Times:

“Anthony Fauci has been slowly but deliberately moving the goal posts…”

You know what “deliberately moving the goal posts” is a figure of speech for, don’t you? LYING.

Yes, friends, Romans and countrymen, the New York Times, in a laudatory piece celebrating the little menace’s deceitful behavior, freely admits he has been outright lying to the American public for almost a full year now about each and every aspect of this viral plague from China. Fauci admits it, too, because, you see, his lying is all for your own good.

You don’t have to believe me: All you have to do is read the little menace in his own words in this excerpt from the Times story:

In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.

Hard as it may be to hear, he said, he believes that it may take close to 90 percent immunity to bring the virus to a halt — almost as much as is needed to stop a measles outbreak.

Asked about Dr. Fauci’s conclusions, prominent epidemiologists said that he might be proven right. The early range of 60 to 70 percent was almost undoubtedly too low, they said, and the virus is becoming more transmissible, so it will take greater herd immunity to stop it.

Dr. Fauci said that weeks ago, he had hesitated to publicly raise his estimate because many Americans seemed hesitant about vaccines, which they would need to accept almost universally in order for the country to achieve herd immunity.

Now that some polls are showing that many more Americans are ready, even eager, for vaccines, he said he felt he could deliver the tough message that the return to normal might take longer than anticipated.

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent,” Dr. Fauci said. “Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.

[End]

So, he’s nudging it up a bit based on polls, a clear admission that he’s been lying and waiting on the polls to authorize his next lie, because he really doesn’t know a damn thing about any of this and doesn’t want to admit it in public, since he’s paid millions of dollars a year to actually know stuff.

The little menace is nothing more or less than just another corrupt DC politician, triangulating his message – to borrow a Clinton phrase – to the public based on polls. This is not science; this is tyranny, a tyranny of clueless “experts” that has served as the basis for our nation’s entire insane response to this virus.

It’s the sort of tyranny that leads directly to this kind of lunacy on the cable fake news channels:

It’s as if no one on CNN or MSNBC is capable of noticing the simple, unarguable fact that this latest outbreak of the China virus has taken place as we are all social distancing and wearing masks. These two practices do nothing to stop the spread of this virus – nothing at all. Not a damn thing.

They are no different than what homeland security does at our nation’s airports: Meaningless, ineffective gestures designed to instill public confidence while in fact doing little or nothing to actually make us safer.

IF MASKS WORKED, WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING THE CURRENT OUTBREAK.

Seriously, how hard is this? But 90% of the public just regurgitates the media/Fauci talking points because we have become a nation of pathetic sheep.

There will be no New Roundup on Friday for obvious reasons.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Monday News Roundup: Fulton County, Georgia is Ground Zero for the Creation of the U.S. Banana Republic

[Note: For those who need their dose of mind-numbingly fake news about Joe Potato Head Biden and his dogs, I’ve covered all of that nonsense in a separate story this morning.]

China Traitor Quid Pro Joe Biden and his team of anti-American globalist leftists will love this story from DailyWire:

Here’s an excerpt:

A Chinese sociologist recently delivered marks at a forum reportedly in Shenzhen where he declared that it was only a matter of time before China overtakes the United States and effectively puts an end to it.

The remarks from Dr. Li Yi were reported by MEMRI TV, a research organization that normally tracks Islamic extremism around the world and anti-Semitism.

The most inflammatory quotes from the speech include:

  • “It turns out that China is going to overtake the United States in 2027. It was said that this might be delayed for a year or two, but this year, God has pulled off a little trick, right? God created COVID-19 and spread it to every country in the world.”
  • “COVID-19 is bad for Europe and America, but it is beneficial for North Korea and China.”
  • “We still have 4,000 dead, right? But if 4,000 (Chinese) die versus 220,000 in the United States, we haven’t really lost a single person, have we? We’re close to zero infections and zero deaths. If 4,000 people out of 1.4 billion die, that’s the same as no one getting sick and no one dying.”
  • “In the global economy, China stands out. We are ahead of schedule in terms of overtaking the United States. There will be no problem reaching this goal in 2027. The U.S. will not survive.”

[End]

You can bet the people at Camp Biden are looking at each other suspiciously this morning, wondering who it was that leaked their entire plan for the next four years of foreign policy to this Chinese sociologist.

My goodness.

The Russians are all smiles these days, as well. – China isn’t the only enemy of the U.S. that will benefit hugely from a Biden globalist foreign policy shift: The Russians are all happy as clams these days as well. After all, Russia’s entire economy is dependent on its oil and natural gas industry, and Biden’s plans to demolish the U.S. industry will redound to Putin’s benefit to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars each year.

Oh, hey, here is Jen Pasaki, Biden’s candidate to become White House Communications Director, paling around with a John Kerry and a pair of prominent Russian officials while wearing a pink hammer and sickle hat a few years ago:

Hooboy. I’m guessing that a Biden Department of Justice won’t be appointing a special counsel to look into all of that Russia collusion.

Meanwhile, in COVID-19 world… – Look, y’all: Anthony Fauci has suddenly decided the schools should be reopened now that Election Day is safely behind us:

Literally everyone on earth who has been paying attention to all of this COVID nonsense knew all of what Fauci said on Sunday morning months ago. This man is a menace to our entire way of life, and his influence would only grow larger in a Biden administration. Truly frightening.

The Devil went down to Georgia, he was lookin’ for a vote to steal… – Lots of really bad stuff went down in Georgia on Sunday, where Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger did nothing as Fulton County election officials “reset” the Dominion voting machines in blatant effort to erase all records related to the general election from them.

They did all of that in spite of judge’s order to halt the process:

The initial claim from Raffensperger’s election officials was that they were resetting the machines – in the midst of a general election recount, mind you – to get them ready for the January senate runoff elections. When that lame explanation wouldn’t fly, election officials then began claiming late Sunday afternoon that the Dominion Systems Mobil server had crashed:

Here’s an excerpt from that story at 11Alive News:

ATLANTA — The push to complete a recount requested by President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has hit a snag in Georgia’s most populous county as the statewide deadline looms.

Fulton County elections officials confirmed to 11Alive on Sunday that a newly-purchased Dominion Voting Systems mobile server had crashed earlier in the day.

“Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue,” Fulton County officials said in a statement. “The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem.”

The county plans to resume its counting process on Monday morning. So far, Fulton suggests its teams have already concluded the counting of absentee, early in-person, and provisional ballots – 88 percent of ballots cast.

[End]

“Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue.” Oh, boy, that really makes us all feel better, doesn’t it?

Once again, we see Sec. of State Raffensperger – with the willing cooperation of Governor Brian Kemp – conducting the very same sham, meaningless “recount” of the November ballots that has already been done once before. It does not include a real audit of those ballots, including signature matching, that would be needed to really expose the fraud. So, even though everyone should be outraged by the fact that the Democrat election officials were resetting the servers in the midst of the recount, the fact is that this entire process is another distraction by a corrupt Sec. State and Governor.

But because the corrupt news media refuses to report any of it honestly, they have no political price to pay for their betrayal of the American people. In the meantime, the fix is obviously already in for those January runoffs, and the Democrat election officials have no doubt already begun producing the “ballots” they will need to ensure that both of their candidates come out the “winners.”

Georgia has become ground zero for the establishment of the American Banana Republic.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: A New Vaccine and a New Biden-Related Voter Fraud Scam

Just a reminder that this man literally created, supplied and armed ISIS and authorized thousands of drone killings in the Middle East. Liberals think he’s wonderful:

This seems like a big deal:

Would have been good to know about this before the elections, dudes. But hey, I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence that this comes out 13 days after.

From the Mediaite Story:

Biotechnology firm Moderna has announced that their experimental vaccine is showing a very high level of effectiveness for protecting people from the coronavirus. This news follows a similar announcement from Pfizer about their Covid-19 vaccine, but the Moderna vaccine is now expected to remain stable at standard refrigerator temperatures of 2° to 8°C (36° to 46°F) for 30 days, up from the previous estimate of 7 days.

The company announced that their early data analysis shows their vaccine has a 94.5 percent effectiveness against Covid-19. CNN reports that Moderna received its results on Sunday while on call with the Data Safety and Monitoring Board, which has been overseeing their clinical data.

“It’s extremely good news. If you look at the data, the numbers speak for themselves,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a response gathered by Washington Post. “I describe myself as a realist, but I’m fundamentally a cautious optimist. I felt we’d likely get something less than this. … I said certainly a 90-plus-percent effective vaccine is possible, but I wasn’t counting on it.”

[End]

As I discuss elsewhere this morning, we can have a dozen effective vaccines and it won’t make a damn bit of difference to the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci. He’s determined to keep us all wearing masks and pretending that social distancing works forever – the new normal in which he is the ultimate arbiter of how the government continues controlling our lives. Read it.

That’s why the Trump challenges that will be moving forward in the courts this week are so crucial. – After a weekend of pure hype from Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Lin Wood, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell, the cases they have filed in state and federal courts challenging the election results in a half dozen states will begin being heard this week. While the need for a PR assault in an effort such as this is certainly understandable, this weekend was a case of too much in too short a time.

Worse, the rhetoric coming from these lawyers doesn’t really do much to increase confidence that they are truly prepared to make convincing cases in court. Giuliani in particular places almost all of his emphasis on witness testimony providing “proof” that elections were stolen using the Dominion systems. But if witness testimony is all they have, they are wasting their and the court’s time.

If these lawyers are not able to present cases filled with forensic proof that the election was indeed manipulated and demonstrate clearly how it all worked, then these lawsuits aren’t going to change a thing. They are going to be asking judges to put their lives and the remainder of their careers in personal jeopardy by issuing decisions that change the media-promoted outcomes in half a dozen states. No judge is going to be willing to do that based on the testimony of one or a thousand individuals.

Vague allegations that Dominion was created by Hugo Chavez and is partly-owned by China will not be enough: They must be able to show – clearly and unambiguously – that this system was manipulated in a way that literally changed the outcomes in states where the official counts show Biden ahead by 150,000 votes (Michigan), 60,000 votes (Pennsylvania) and 15,000 votes (Georgia).

That’s a very tall order, and the Trump legal team has only had slightly less than two weeks to put these cases together. None of this is to doubt the validity of the allegations that are being made: This election was stolen without any real question at all. But proving that in court in such a way that a judge or panel of judges are compelled to issue a radical, precedent-setting remedy – which is what they would be – is a different thing entirely.

The best advice for all of us is to hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.

The fake news never ends. – After the Trump team amended is complaint in Pennsylvania for clarity, striking one of several paragraphs that detail the fact that GOP election observers were denied access to vote counts in Philadelphia and other Democrat-run cities, the corrupt news media jointly ran with a fake story that the complaint had been dropped.

It hadn’t:

But don’t expect any corrections from the WaPo or New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the myriad other fake news outlets who pushed that false story. Because faking the news is what they do and who they are. It’s in their DNA.

Meanwhile, here’s another very plausible story about massive election fraud helping Joe Biden that none of the corrupt national outlets are covering, because of course they aren’t.

From the story at The Buffalo Chronicle:

The innermost circles of the American mafia are abuzz.  The Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino — is taking a victory strut, hobnobbing around the highest echelons of old-time mafia folk, mostly in Florida, describing what may have been the heist of the century: the 2020 presidential election.

The feat is drawing praise from far-flung corners of the Italian American business community, which sees the thanks of a grateful administration as key to the revival of the community’s political influence.

But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden.  The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work.  They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers.  They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.

[End]

This is, of course, the kind of old-fashioned voter fraud that Democrats have been practicing in big inner-cities from time immemorial. It’s exactly the kind of mob operation that got John F. Kennedy elected in 1960, the kind that got Lyndon Johnson elected to the U.S. senate in 1948, albeit on a much smaller scale. Should Merlino flip, it would be the ultimate irony, given that Biden won his first race for U.S. Senator in 1972 with the voter fraud help of the Philly mob and the Teamsters Union.

We still have a long way to go here, folks. Just be patient.

Fauci Won’t Stop Until Someone Stops Him

Get used to the new normal, folks. – Looking forward to getting rid of your masks and having the kids back in school once you’ve all been vaccinated? Not so fast, sez the little menace to society, Anthony Fauci.

Appearing on CNN – because of course he was appearing on CNN – Fauci told Jake Tapper that we’ll all just have to keep wearing those masks and doing that cute social distancing and pretending it all works for long after the vaccines have been made widely available.

From a piece at Breitbart:

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that it will still be necessary to social distance, wear masks after a coronavirus vaccine becomes available.

Jake Tapper said, “Once somebody has been immunized … Once the process is complete, does that mean they can take off their mask, don’t have to social distance, and go about their lives as before?”

Fauci said, “I would recommend that is not the case. I would recommend you have an added area of protection. Obviously, with 90 plus percent effective vaccine, you could feel much more confident, but I would recommend to people to not abandon all public health measures just because you’ve been vaccinated.”

[End]

You have to understand that, in Fauci’s demented mind, this is our “new normal,” one that should continue forever. This has been obvious since March. This is how this tiny little man derives his self-worth – determining how the lives of millions of Americans should be restricted every day. This is his base of power, and he will not be surrendering it voluntarily.

Let’s understand that he is advocating we continue into perpetuity tactics that have utterly failed to do anything real to contain this viral gift from China. The country is supposedly experiencing a new record number of “cases” despite the deployment of these very tactics across the country for months now. If these “case” numbers the media keeps pushing without fully explaining are in fact real, then we need new tactics, not a doubling down on the ones that have clearly failed us.

But success or failure doesn’t even factor into the Little Menace’s calculus: This is about control, pure and simple. It’s about Democrat politicians like Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who ordered new lockdowns in her state over the weekend, being able to control her citizens and their personal behavior with the literal waive of a hand. It’s about Democrat governors in states like New York, California and Nevada being able to arbitrarily limit church attendance to no more than 10 people while they allow their strip clubs to reopen.

And it’s about Fauci being able to keep up his daily appearances on CNN and MSNBC, because when the lights on those cameras go on, he gets his endorphin rush.

He won’t stop until he is stopped. Does anyone really think Dementia Joe Biden will stop him?

And if you think all of this is just about containing a virus, well, think again:

It’s about global warming, and global economic challenges, and global social justice and global this and global that and, hey, wait – you thought the Biden campaign came up with that whole “Building Back Better” on their own? Hah.

Monday News Roundup: Fauci’s in Jeopardy and Trump Smeared for Planning to Declare Victory

The little societal menace may have finally gone too far. – At the last of his amazing five rallies yesterday, President Trump hinted that he might well be planning to finally, at long last rid us of the human pestilence that is Anthony Fauci.

From a report at the New York Post:

President Trump late Sunday night hinted that he may fire White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci after the election.

The president went on the riff while speaking about the pandemic during his fifth rally of the day in Opa-locka, Florida.

As Trump lamented news coverage of the virus, the crowd erupted into a “Fire Fauci” chant.

After the crowd simmered down, Trump said: “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait till a little bit after the election.

“I appreciate the advice,” Trump said, to roaring cheers.

[End]

The President’s remarks came after the little menace to society had gone into full pro-Biden campaign mode in various interviews over the weekend, praising Creepy Joe McNastyFinger and telling one interviewer that the U.S. “is in for a world of hurt” this winter related to the China Virus. Given that, of course the President is considering ridding his administration of this attention-seeking creep who has been wrong about literally every aspect of this pandemic, and whose main core competency appears to be a singular talent for creating confusion by contradicting himself on a weekly basis.

Along with getting rid of Christopher Wray and Gina Haspel, sending Fauci out to pasture should be right at the top of President Trump’s post-election victory to-do list.

Speaking of Quid Pro China Traitor Joe… – Biden himself went into full pandering mode to Black voters while in Philadelphia on Sunday, resorting to all of the standard Democrat lies designed to frighten Black voters to get out to the polling places.

At one point, Biden, whose demented mind has always been an empty vessel waiting to be filled by the ideas of others, also slipped back into his standard plagiarist mode, channeling the ghost of Hillary Clinton:

Hey, at least Biden didn’t try to affect a cringe-worthy southern accent.

Notice that Delaware Blue Hens jacket Biden has on? The pathological liar told the crowd of half a dozen people that it was actually a Philadelphia Eagles jacket.

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

This is what is known as Nate Silver giving himself an out when Trump wins tomorrow. – Check out these comments from poll monkey Nate Silver, who is giving Biden an 88% chance of winning the Electoral College tomorrow:

Without Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will become “an underdog,” FiveThirtyEight founder and pollster Nate Silver said on Sunday.

Silver told ABC’s “This Week” that he thinks the 2020 election comes down to Pennsylvania.

“Pennsylvania has not bumped up to a seven or eight-point Biden lead, like we see in Michigan and Wisconsin,” he noted. He went on to say that “it’s not a big early voting state, so a lot of votes have not yet been cast in Pennsylvania.”

According to the FiveThirtyEight national polling average, with two days until Election Day, the former vice president was leading Trump by 8.5%.

As of Sunday, Biden leads Trump by 4.9% in Pennsylvania, according to FiveThirtyEight’s updating average of 2020 presidential general election polls, compared to a more sizeable lead of 8.4% in Michigan and 8.6% in Wisconsin.

[End]

Silver famously gave the Fainting Felon about a 90% chance of winning back in 2016. Obviously, he believes he needed to roll these comments out so he can say, “see? told you so” if Pennsylvania goes to the President one more time.

Silver is right about one thing, though: As this race is shaping up, it all will very likely come down to the Keystone State, which explains why both candidates have focused so much time and money there in the campaign’s closing days.

This might help. – The very liberal Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has not endorsed a Republican presidential nominee since Richard Nixon, who was running against the communist George McGovern in 1972. Well, given that the entire Democrat Party has gone full-on commie this year, that seems to be the magic bullet for the Post-Gazette’s editors, because they issued a hearty endorsement of President Donald Trump on Sunday. Here’s a clip:

Let’s look at the Trump record:

Under Donald Trump the economy, pre-COVID, boomed, like no time since the 1950s. Look at your 401(k) over the past three years.

Unemployment for Black Americans is lower than it has ever been, under any president of either party.

Under Mr. Trump, our trade relationships have vastly improved and our trade deals have been rewritten. Thanks to him, middle America is on the map again and the Appalachian and hourly worker has some hope.

Has Mr. Trump done enough for these struggling fellow citizens? No. But he recognized them. Maybe he was not articulate, but he recognized their pain.

No one ever asked the American people, or the people in “flyover,” country, if they wanted to send their jobs abroad — until Mr. Trump. He has moved the debate, in both parties, from free trade, totally unfettered, to managed, or fair, trade. He has put America first, just as he said he would.

He also kept his promise to appoint originalists to the Supreme Court of the United States. His third appointment, Amy Coney Barrett, is the best of all — a jurist whose mind and character and scholarship ARE first class. We hope she stands against both judicial and executive excess.

Finally, let’s talk about one of the most important concerns in this region — energy. Under Mr. Trump the United States achieved energy independence for the first time in the lifetimes of most of us. Where would Western Pennsylvania be without the Shell Petrochemical Complex (the “cracker plant”)?

Donald Trump is not Churchill, to be sure, but he gets things done.

[End]

That’s pretty good, coming from a bunch of leftwing nitwits.

Endorsements don’t generally mean much, but the one exception to that rule can be when said endorsement is a departure from the norm. Face it: Everyone knew the New York Times and Washington Post would line up to goose-step along with Biden and his commie hordes. That was a given. Everyone knew that the editors of the Wall Street Journal would faithfully endorse the President. There could be no doubt.

But everyone assumed that the Post-Gazette editorial board would also goose-step along with their comrades at the Times and the Post. That they chose instead to actually give the matter some real, honest thought is a real credit to their journalistic curiosity and a true service to their readers.

Good for them.

In other news, President Trump is now being smeared for planning to declare victory if it is apparent that he has won. – That pre-emptive smear comes from reliable old Jonathan Swan at the DNC bullhorn Axios, in a hit piece based on nothing but the claims of anonymous sources.

Here’s a clip:

President Trump has told confidants he’ll declare victory on Tuesday night if it looks like he’s “ahead,” according to three sources familiar with his private comments. That’s even if the Electoral College outcome still hinges on large numbers of uncounted votes in key states like Pennsylvania.

The latest: Speaking to reporters on Sunday evening, Trump denied that he would declare victory prematurely, before adding, “I think it’s a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election. I think it’s a terrible thing when states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time after the election is over.”

  • He continued: “I think it’s terrible that we can’t know the results of an election the night of the election. … We’re going to go in the night of, as soon as that election’s over, we’re going in with our lawyers.”
  • “We don’t want to have Pennsylvania, where you have a political governor, a very partisan guy. … We don’t want to be in a position where he’s allowed, every day, to watch ballots come in. See if we can only find 10,000 more ballots.”

Behind the scenes: Trump has privately talked through this scenario in some detail in the last few weeks, describing plans to walk up to a podium on election night and declare he has won.

[End]

So, what we see Swan doing here is setting the table for a refusal by the corrupt news media to properly call states for President Trump when it becomes obvious he has won them on Tuesday night, a clear departure from what they have always done in the past. It has been obvious that this has been the joint media/Democrat plan for months now, a plan clearly designed to create as much confusion and uproar as possible to help facilitate effort by the Democrats to steal the election in places like Pennsylvania, Florida and Arizona in the days following November 3.

Let’s say that it becomes obvious to the President that he has won more than 269 electoral votes at some point Tuesday night: Why in that instance would he not take to the podium and declare victory, regardless of whether or not the AP or any of the TV networks and cable channels agree?

Swan appears to believe that the media gets to declare who is and is not the winner, but that is nonsense. Nowhere in our Constitution is any mention made of a role for the media in determining the formal outcome of any election.

If the President is told by his staff that he has won on Tuesday night, then he should definitely declare that victory, and then send in his army of lawyers to monitor Democrat voter fraud efforts that will inevitably take place in places like Philadelphia and Broward County, Florida. The media has no say in any of this.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Early Voting Trends are Going Trump’s Way

Early voting trends bode well for Trump. – For those who, like me, are obsessing over the early voting trends in key swing states, frequent contributor Larry Schweikart has a very good piece posted up at UncoverDC.com this morning.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

As the Democrat lead in the Vote By Mail (VBM) mounted two weeks ago, many Republicans panicked. Not only do Democrats usually lead in “early” voting (which includes both VBM and “In-Person Early Voting,” or IPEV), but this year in particular—with the China Virus—their emphasis on VBM has resulted in stunning voting levels. So far.

Then, suddenly, the Democrats peaked. On or around October 16, their VBM numbers, especially in Florida, began to slow. Although they had one last burst for the “Souls to the Polls” of October 24-25, it was their last gasp. When IPEV started in Florida, Republicans came out like a mighty wave, rolling over the Democrats. To date, they have over 1.3 million in-person voters. (The Democrats have not been, to use Joe Biden’s term, “chumps” at this, turning out 945,000 in-person early voters, but they are steadily losing ground). Democrats had built a 615,000 lead before the Red Charge, and now lead in total votes in Florida only by 242,102. While the pace of Republican voting is breathtaking—at one point they were adding 6,000 votes per hour—they are now on a pace to be well ahead of 2016, when Hillary Clinton entered election day with an 88,000 lead in the Sunshine State.

Ponder that. Despite the most extensive early vote/VBM campaign in history by the Democrats, Republicans are as of today poised to lead by election day. Even more astounding, they are within a mere 8,000 votes overall of winning Miami-Dade County. And right now Republicans in every county from Pensacola to the western border of Jacksonville at or above 98% of their 2016 levels (except Bay, Butler, and Leon which started later), but in these same counties Democrat turnout is lagging.

[End]

There is much more good news in several other states, so go read the full piece. You’ll feel better after you’ve done so.

Larry added one more tasty tidbit regarding Arizona on his Twitter feed late last night:

We are also having very strong early voting turnout in my home state of Texas, where the media has been heavily touting the potential for the Democrats to somehow turn the state blue in this election, just as the media has touted in every Texas election since 2008.

Some of you have no doubt been concerned by the recent fake poll paid for by the Dallas Morning News showing Biden ahead in Texas. Below is the estimate of early votes already cast in Texas by TargetSmart, a Democrat firm, which uses a formula that has proven to be accurate to estimate this in states, like Texas, that don’t require voters to register their party affiliation

As you can see, according to this Democrat firm, R voters are 18% ahead of D voters in early and mail-in balloting, which amounts to over 1 MILLION votes. Also understand that far more Rs are planning to vote in person on election day than Ds are. Texas will not be close, and Trump will win.

Stop worrying about Texas. There are plenty of other places to worry about – like Wisconsin, Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

So, how’s the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign going? – While President Donald Trump was speaking before a crowd of 23,000 Arizonans in Bullhead City (total population, 40,000), Kamala Harris was speaking before a pretend audience that the media wouldn’t even show because it was so pitifully paltry.

But that’s only part of the story. Check out this video clip of the stage getting set up for her 30 seconds before she was scheduled to speak.

Surreal. Absolutely surreal.

But what about Michigan? – Yesterday, some media-sponsored fake poll came out showing Biden/Harris Harris/Biden with a whopping 17-point lead in Michigan. So, if the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden camp really believed that poll, wouldn’t they be skipping Michigan to campaign in more fertile territory? Say, maybe North Carolina or Pennsylvania one more time?

Of course, they would. But that poll is as fake as Jake Tapper’s furrowed brow, so not only will Creepy Uncle McNastyFinger emerge from his basement lair to travel there for a Saturday rally, but he announced he will be bringing Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self with him.

So, what about Michigan? Well, the truth is that President Trump is ahead there, like he told that Arizona crowd yesterday, and as we all know, Barack Hussein Obama has no magic wand that would enable him to turn back that Red tide.

As for yesterday, Quid Pro China Joe did get out into public, making it all the way to a polling place to cast a vote IN PERSON:

My guess is that he just wanted to go see who was running for president this time. Imagine his surprise.

He will not stop this until someone stops him. – We’ve seen lots of stories this week about President Trump having a growing list of high-level officials to be purged from the federal government shortly after he wins re-election for a second term in office. That list is rumored to include worthless hacks like Christopher Wray, roadblocks to truth and transparency like CIA Director Gina Haspel, and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Esper.

Everyone should hope and pray that the name of the little societal menace, Anthony Fauci, also makes its way onto that list of terminations. I’ve been telling you since March that Fauci’s obvious goal related to COVID-19 is to extend the pain on the American people for as long as he can get away with.

On Tuesday, Fauci told an audience in Australia that is new goal is to extend the pain all the way into 2022, as reported by NewsMax:

It’s not likely that life will return to “some semblances of normalcy” before the end of next year, or even until 2022, even though a vaccine is near, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a University of Melbourne panel, CNN reported Wednesday.

[End]

So, here we see the little menace trying to extend his vauted “15 days to flatten the curve” into a destructive set of restrictions on life and the economy for two solid years. Given the chance, he will be talking about extending it into 2024 just a few months from now.

President Trump desperately needs to not give him that chance. This little menace cannot be purged from our presence soon enough.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: A Red Wave is Building for Donald Trump

Lots of other stuff was happening while Amy Coney Barrett was being confirmed and sworn in to her new seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.

First, let’s look at the latest results from the two polling firms – Rasmussen and Trafalgar – that accurately projected the final outcome of the 2016 election well in advance. 

In Rasmussen, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) has now assumed the national lead for the first time, coming in at 48% to Biden’s 47%. You may remember that Trump also led in the final Rasmussen survey in 2016, but ended up losing the popular vote thanks to the Fainting Felon’s enormous margin in a single state, California. Well, that, along with millions of illegal votes counted in her column.  We should be prepared for a similar result in the popular vote this time thanks in large part to the Democrats’ redoubled vote fraud strategy.

Still, this poll from this particular pollster is extremely encouraging. Note also that 2/3rds of this poll’s sample was taken on October 21 and 22, before the President’s domination of the final presidential debate, and thus very likely understates the Trump margin as a result.

Then there’s Trafalgar, the only pollster who makes any real effort to account for the very real and consequential “shy Trump voter” phenomenon. Trafalgar released a series of state polls on Monday showing the President leading in the states of Michigan, Florida and Arizona, all crucial swing states. These polls were take after that final debate.

Trafalgar’s most recent poll in the state of Pennsylvania had Biden leading by 2 points, but it was taken on Oct. 10-12, well before that last debate. It will be interesting to see if the group releases a new poll in that crucial state before Election Day.

Again, these are just polls, but these are from the two most reliable firms and are not affiliated with any corrupt media operation or university. They show what we already knew: All the momentum in this election is behind the President.

And then there is this. – The New York Times, no less, ran a piece on Monday citing new polling data indicating that President Trump is getting about 24% of the early votes cast thus far in … wait for it … Philadelphia!:

As The Last Refuge points out in this tweet, if Trump really does carry 24% of the Philly vote, Pennsylvania will not be close.

Apparently, the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden camp saw these polls too:

This is what a peaceful protest really looks like. – Incidentally, the Bidens and their evil handlers had to use an alternative route to get to their “rally.” Why? Because the main route to get there was overwhelmed with a sea of peaceful Trump supporters. Take a look:

This has been happening at every event Biden has held in PA over the past week. But you’re being brainwashed to believe that the guy who keeps speaking to empty backyards and parking lots is going to win in a landslide.

Yeah, no.

This is what will be left of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign come next Tuesday. – Hey, remember that big, yellow “Black Lives Matter” mural New York City’s buffoon Marxist Mayor Bill DeBlasio had painted right in front of Trump Tower this summer?

Here is what is left of it now:

See? Good things still can happen in the Big Apple.

He’s an elderly, demented Jeb! Bush now. – Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester ventured out of his basement on Monday to prove that he’s still alive and can move around without his handy IV. Things went about as we would have expected:

If you still think the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci, is a credible person, watch this video of him being completely dismantled by… wait for it … Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

Seriously, any questions? No? Good.

Finally, with Halloween coming up, I wanted to present you with the scariest video you will see this entire week. Watch it with the sound off and tell me I’m wrong:

Yikes!

That is all.

Get Ready for “All COVID All The Time” Through Election Day

So, we’re back to the “All COVID All The Time” narrative in our national and local corrupt news media. Following the horrific debate performance by Quid Pro China Joe Biden on Thursday, the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have decided that whipping up yet another round of hysteria about the China Flu is the only hope of getting their addled, elderly guy across the finish line.

Thus, the full court press began on Friday, the day on which new “cases” of COVID-19 supposedly reached a new high since June. Sure it did.

There was Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester himself, venturing out of his basement abode to make a speech to another empty room in which he laid out is super-terrific-China-Flu-fighting-plan that would include a national mask-wearing mandate, another round of massive economic shut-downs and closing of Interstate travel.

Yeah, that’s the ticket!

There was the little societal menace Anthony Fauci pontificating on CNN, saying that even with a vaccine -which he knows full well will only be marginally effective – we’re all gonna have to stay locked in our homes and keep wearing masks whenever in public through not just the end of this year, not just the end of 2021, but through the end of 2022 if he has his way, which he certainly will under a Biden/Harris co-presidency.

There was Jack Tapper with his permanently-wrinkled brow, showing great concern and artificial empathy as the little menace droned on, playing his role to perfection. And there was the army of Blue-check Twitter wonders, repeating Fauci’s sage advice as if it were the gospel handed down from Mount Sinai, even though none of them believe in the gospel and the little menace has been 100% wrong about every aspect of this pandemic since the ChiCom government intentionally let it loose on the world last November.

Just how wrong has the little menace been? Newly-discovered and released emails show that that Fauci actually signed off on a World Health Organization-sponsored press release supporting China’s response to the pandemic.

No, I’m not kidding. From a report at JustTheNews.com:

 

Emails obtained by Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show that White House coronavirus adviser Anthony Fauci in late January approved of a World Health Organization-sponsored press release supporting China’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The email refers to the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board, an independent advisory body created by WHO and the World Bank Group. It specifically notes “consensus for the GPMB to issue a statement supportive of countries’ (especially China) and WHO response efforts, and to call for urgent actions to further strengthen global preparedness and response to this outbreak.”

“Looks fine,” Fauci responded. “Please see my comments in attached document.”

[End]

“Looks fine.” Well, sure it looked fine to Fauci, who appears to be just fine with anything that is designed to destroy the U.S. economy and our society at large.

It was Fauci, after all, who thought “15 days to flatten the curve” was the right idea back in March. We’re currently in, what, Day 200 or so of that futile effort, give or take a few.

It was also Fauci, after all, who told us on one of his myriad national TV appearances that wearing masks has no effect on this virus, none at all, and was just a waste of time. Now, he’s telling us that we all need to keep wearing these masks – even at home and in the car – for the next two years, and maybe longer.

But of course, he himself is exempt, as we saw at Nationals ball park a couple of months ago:

Dr. Anthony Fauci warns Marlins COVID-19 outbreak could put MLB season 'in danger' - CBSSports.com

Well, of course he exempts himself, because he knows the damn masks have zero effect on this virus, which is in fact consistent with what the actual science on the subject tells us.

But never mind the science and the dozens of times Fauci has contradicted his own advice in public and in his seemingly-daily TV appearances; there is an election to be influenced, so he and Tapper and the whole crew are going to spend the next 10 days whipping up as much false hysteria about the China Flu as they can manage, all in an effort to get their Unfrozen Caveman Candidate over the finish line.

Yes, it’s despicable; yes, it’s depraved; yes, it’s demented, disgusting and deplorable. But hey, these are Democrats and their media toadies we’re talking about here – you expected something else?

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Trump Dumps on Fauci, CNN Analyst Goes Toobin and Gallup’s Awful News for Biden

No matter how bad your day was on Monday, it was not as bad as the day that CNN Lead Legal Analyst and general all-round hack Jeffrey Toobin had. Toobin was suspended by his other employer, The New Yorker Magazine, when it was revealed that he had whipped it full-on out during a recent staff ZOOM call.

But it gets worse: Toobin not only whipped it out during the call, but then went on to engage in the act of – ummmm, how should I characterize this? –  “pleasuring” himself live and on camera. No, I am not making this stuff up.

From a report at the New York Post:

The New Yorker star writer and CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin exposed himself on a Zoom call — and has now been suspended from the magazine, a report said Monday.

The incident happened during an online meeting between magazine colleagues and WNYC workers last week, sources told Vice.

Enlarge ImageJeffrey Toobin
Jeffrey ToobinGetty Images

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Toobin later copped to Vice in a statement.

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.

“I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”

A spokeswoman for the New Yorker said, “Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”

CNN added in a statement that Toobin, a Harvard Law School grad, would be taking time off from the cable network, as well.

“Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted,” CNN said in a statement.

[End]

So, just a little piece of advice here: Whenever you are on a business ZOOM call and the topic turns to what you will be doing over the coming weekend, do not under any circumstances tell your fellow participants that you are “fixin’ to go Toobin.” They may not understand.

Holy crap.

At an event attended by more than 20,000 in Arizona yesterday, President Donald Trump referred to CNN as a bunch of “dumb bastards.” 

If I could vote for this man a million billion times, I would gladly do it.

Take a look at this crowd:

But you’re supposed to believe as a matter of faith in media-generated polls showing the man who draws these enormous crowds everywhere he goes is trailing the guy who has spent his entire campaign speaking to empty parking lots and back yards.

The President also went after the little menace to American society, Dr. Anthony Fauci, in a campaign phone call that oddly also allowed fake reporters to listen in, saying at one point, “People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots, these people, these people that have gotten it wrong. Fauci is a nice guy, he’s been here for 500 years, he called every one of them wrong.”

Truer words were never spoken.

After those remarks were reported in the corrupt news media, the President doubled down in a pair of tweets:

Again, all 100% true. A mere firing is far too easy a fate for the little societal menace who has done so much to facilitate the destruction of our constitutional freedoms and destroy the greatest economy on earth. Far, far too easy.

As of this morning, the New York Post’s Twitter account remains frozen for the 6th consecutive day for having reported the truth about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Also as of this morning, Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester embarks on his 3rd day of isolation, hooked up to his trusty IV so he can be fully medicated for Thursday night’s final debate. I still believe the President should refuse to participate in that debate, and fully explain my reasoning in another post this morning.

Back to the polls: Wonder why the media-sponsored polls are so far off from anything resembling reality? Just take a look at this: The Gallup organization released its new “party affiliation” national polling data on Monday, and the results are extremely bad for the polling industry and the Democrat Party.

That’s right: 28% R, 27% D and 42% Independent.

So, what is the breakdown most of the media-generated polls are using? Well, most of them use the breakdown from the data compiled just before the 2016 election, which was:

36% D, 27% R and 31% Independent, a 9-point edge for the Democrats.

Oh.

But wait, it gets better! Other polls have been using the breakdown from just before the 2018 mid-term elections, which was:

38%D, 27%R and 31% Independent, a whopping 11 point edge for the Democrats.

Oh.

Thus, now you know just one more reason why you should not spend a moment of time trusting any poll sponsored by any media outlet. These polls are hopelessly corrupt, and specifically and intentionally designed to push a false narrative of Biden holding a huge lead in order to suppress the Trump vote.

When you adjust these polls for the real breakdown of the 2020 electorate, Biden is in fact well behind and is going to lose, bigly.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: The Media’s Odd QAnon Obsession and Chris Wray Gets Another Letter

I’m old enough to remember when Saturday Night Live and Jim Carrey were both funny. It doesn’t seem like that long ago. Oh, well.

CNN continues the media’s weird obsession with QAnon. – This has been the strangest part of the entire year in 2020, and that’s saying a ton. The media’s obsession with QAnon, a web-based loose association of people who believe in a bunch of stuff that no one can really describe and that only a tiny fraction of 1% of Americans have even heard of, is truly stunning and frankly inexplicable by any real journalistic practice.

Literally every major mainstream media outlet has done multiple major expose’s on this topic, attempting to portray the completely peaceful group as some sort of existential threat to America. As I noted on Thursday, Savannah Guthrie is so consumed by QAnon that she actually led off President Trump’s townhall on NBC Wednesday night with a demand that he condemn the group. 99% of viewers no doubt looked at their spouses and said, “what in the hell is a QAnon?” when Guthrie went into her vicious diatribe on the subject.

The only way to rationalize all of this attention on such a “nobody in the country gives a damn” subject is that it must be an enormous topic of discussion at all the right DC Swamp and Upper East Side dinner parties. Because virtually no one outside of the Washington DC/New York City media/Democrat propaganda bubble knows anything about it.

Think about it: Has the clerk at your local grocery store or barista at your favorite coffee shop ever struck up a conversation with you by asking, “So, what do you think about that whole QAnon deal, huh?” Yeah, that’s not happening. Not at all. Not anywhere.

Anyway, CNN has yet another long, tedious story about the group today, and maybe you should go read it if you have any interest in it. I really don’t, but it is just extraordinary how this media obsession with such a non-issue continues. I made it down to the sub-header that reads “QAnon only hurts people; it has helped nobody,” and realized I just couldn’t stomach the rest.

Bottom line here: CNN and the rest of the news media must be terribly worried about the pro-Trump, anti-pedophilia message coming from QAnon; otherwise, it is impossible to explain the level of uniformly negative attention they have given to this obscure group throughout 2020.

Director Wray! Paging Director Christopher Wray! – Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, lobbed a new letter into the Hoover Building, which serves as the headquarters for America’s dumpster fire FBI. The letter, co-signed by Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, demands that Wray stop withholding key materials from the committee that are in his possession.

Coming as it does barely two weeks prior to Election Day, when Wray is praying Joe Biden will win and thus emancipate him from having to follow the law in any way, shape or form, I’m guessing the new missive from these two senators was immediately filed away in Wray’s enormous dumpster for the next round of burning.

And now we know why Facebook’s “policy” is very simple: Protect Joe Biden. – From our “you could never make this stuff up, folks” file comes the news that Joe Biden’s former “special policy advisor” for the Ukraine, a woman named Anna Makanju, is now a senior executive at Facebook who leads the social media monopoly’s efforts to “ensure election integrity on the platform.”

Oh.

See? I told you. You just could never make this stuff up.

Does this seem weird to you? Because it seems weird to me. – Thousands of women gathered in Washington DC on Saturday for another depraved “Women’s March.” The reason for their event? Why, to protest the elevation of a … wait for it … WOMAN, Amy Coney Barrett, to the Supreme Court.

Again, you could never make this stuff up.

By the way, here’s a photo of the event:

Hundreds protest nomination of Amy Coney Barrett in Washington DC

Oddly, no one in the corrupt news media who invariably complain about the lack of “social distancing” at Trump rallies uttered a peep in protest of this event. Nor did our little societal menace, Anthony Fauci, have any negative words to say about it, although he will tell you you can’t have your kids go trick or treating or have your family over for Thanksgiving this year.

But hey, Fauci’s just another Democrat, and thus a lying hypocrite, something we’ve known all along.

Speaking of lying hypocrites, how about the folks at the World Health Organization? – The chart below shows the WHO’s alleged count of seasonal flu cases from the first of April through the end of September during both 2019 and 2020:

Do you see anything that strikes you as just a bit odd about that 2020 chart, as compared to 2019, which was a pretty normal year for influenza? I mean, if you aren’t Anthony Fauci trying to be a menace to American society, that is.

Doesn’t it strike you as odd that the WHO is claiming that the entire world has seen virtually ZERO cases of seasonal flu since last April? I mean, the bars are barely visible there.

Do you really believe that this year, the seasonal flu has gone pretty much completely dormant? Or do you suppose that it is far more likely that that all of the seasonal flu cases are suddenly being classified as “COVID-19” for political reasons?

This really isn’t hard, folks. You are being brainwashed to continue to accept Fauci’s edicts into perpetuity. If you think this is all going just go away once we have a vaccine available, you haven’t been paying attention to what has been happening thus far related to this virus and the media/Democrat propaganda surrounding it.

Pay attention. Let your kids go trick or treating, for gosh sakes. Have your family over for Thanksgiving. Give Fauci the finger and live your lives like Americans.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: China Scientist Drops a Bombshell and DOJ Convenes a Bolton Grand Jury

Let’s all remember that Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates and Barack Obama directed hundreds of millions to this lab and its “research”. – Last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed a Chinese virologist named Dr. Li-Meng Yan. Ms. Yan worked at the WHO reference lab in Hong Kong, one of the top research labs on earth, during the time the China Virus was released from the virology research lab outside of Wuhan.

She told Carlson that the China Virus was created in that lab and the release of the Virus was committed intentionally by the Chinese communist government.

From a story at Fox News:

Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.

“I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” she said.

“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.”

Yan’s comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, a White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated—the way the mutations have naturally evolved.”

In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted “that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.”

“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.”

Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.

[End]

So, who are we to believe, a scientist who is placing her life in clear danger by making these allegations, or a lifelong bureaucrat who steered millions of dollars to the lab from which the virus was clearly released?

Doesn’t seem like a real tough question.

This also happened on Tuesday:

From a story at the Washington Examiner:

The Justice Department opened a criminal inquiry into whether former White House national security adviser John Bolton unlawfully disclosed classified information in his latest book.

A grand jury convened and issued subpoenas for communication records from Simon & Schuster, the company that published The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir, as well as from Javelin, Bolton’s literary agency, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.

“We are aware of reports that grand jury subpoenas have been issued seeking information concerning the publication of Ambassador Bolton‘s recent book,” Bolton’s lawyer, Charles Cooper, told the Washington Examiner. “Ambassador Bolton emphatically rejects any claim that he acted improperly, let alone criminally, in connection with the publication of his book, and he will cooperate fully, as he has throughout, with any official inquiry into his conduct.”

[End]

Oh, my, oh, my, oh, my, my, my. Whether he ends up being prosecuted and convicted or not, the decision to publish this book is going to end up costing Mr. Bolton far more money in legal fees than whatever money he may make from it. Couldn’t happen to a nicer warmonger.

No critical race theory training at CDC after all. – After President Trump ordered a halt to all training sessions on the evil “critical race theory” within federal agencies, some Obama holdover at the CDC decided they would move ahead with that agency’s sessions anyway:

Yesterday, the Director of the OMB, Russ Vought, announced that that bit of subversion had been halted:

There is still justice in the world.

A beautiful day for a peace deal. – As I covered elsewhere this morning, the Democrat/media Axis of Propaganda was beside itself with rage on Tuesday as President Trump was having the temerity to bring actual peace between three nations in the Middle East.

Katie Pavlich posted these photos, which captured the beautiful setting at the White House:

Blessed are the peacemakers. Thank you, President Trump.

Today’s Democrat Party-sponsored Riot Update – Portland, aka Riot City USA, had a fourth straight day of no rioting following the DNC stand down order issued last Friday due to bad polls. But real journalist Andy Ngo reports that the Democrat-paid organizers are getting ready to mount a new offensive soon:

As I pointed out yesterday, the past few days of relative calm are just a lull in the action. Expect the death and destruction to mount back up soon.

There was some action in Philadelphia, where Democrat-sponsored BLM terrorists held what CNN and MSNBC would claim was a “largely peaceful” rally that included these scenes:

Ask yourselves this: Why do Democrat mayors force their police officers to put up with this kind of crap? That woman is a feral animal who should have been arrested, taken to jail, and booked for assaulting a police officer. She needs to be in custody for her own safety and for the safety of those around her.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Portland Rioters Up the Ante Again as Biden Promises to Shut the Country Down

This is a really strong point. – President Trump put out the following tweet this morning, and it is worth noting:

Did you know that no Democrat presidential nominee has even set foot in Wisconsin since 2012? And this year, after cancelling their planned convention in Milwaukee and moving the fake convention to Delaware for no good reason, the Democrat Party doesn’t even have to good grace to try to steer a little attention Milwaukee’s way.

Prior to 2016, Wisconsin had been a reliable Democrat stronghold in presidential races. The Fainting Felon was so confident of carrying the state that she didn’t bother to hold a single campaign stop there. Big mistake.

Surely the Biden handlers aren’t dumb enough to make the same error again, are they? Don’t necessarily bet on that. Yesterday, word out of the campaign was that it intends to continue its Hidin’ Biden strategy, keeping their Unfrozen Caveman Nominee in the basement of his home while having the younger, more coherent Kamala Harris do all the hard work out on the campaign trail.

Who knows? Maybe this strategy can work in a general election. Besides, when you are putting up a candidate who doesn’t know where he is most day, keeping him in a single location is most likely far less risky than sending him out there to actually meet and talk to people.

Uh, listening to “scientists” to the exclusion of everyone else is why we’re in an economic recession, Joe. – Also on Friday, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Handsy Farty China Joe Biden promised to shut the country down again on the advice of Anthony Fauci:

That should make everyone feel better, huh?

Speaking of listening to the wrong scientists… – In a terrific piece in the Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel looks back at the Biden/Obama administration’s disastrous handling of the H1N1 virus back in 2009-10.

Where more than 5 million Americans have been infected by COVID-19 this year, more than 60 million Americans contracted H1N1. It was only through the grace of God and incredibly good luck that H1N1 was not nearly as deadly as COVID-19 that America did not suffer an enormous calamity during that time.

From the Strassel piece:

The Ebola example is designed to divert attention from a more relevant comparison: the H1N1 swine-flu outbreak of 2009-10. Democrats don’t like to talk about H1N1, because it didn’t go well. If it had been as deadly as Covid-19, the toll would have been catastrophic. The history is a powerful reminder that governments can’t stop a virus—although they can make epidemics worse.

H1N1 began much like corona, with panicked stories in late April 2009 about a novel “hybrid” flu strain in Mexico that was popping up in the U.S. It was even more alarming, in that it especially affected children. Yet the new administration began with a muddled message. Mr. Obama encouraged calm, while Mr. Biden rambled a warning about staying off airplanes and public transport—prompting backlash. “Biden’s flu gaffe a headache for Obama,” read one headline.

Within days, some 30 states had suspected cases, and by April 27 the U.S. had its first death, a 23-month-old child. Other countries started shutting facilities, telling citizens to stay home, quarantining visitors. The Obama administration still had no idea how deadly the disease was, though the World Health Organization called the outbreak a threat to “all humanity,” and health experts predicted hospitals would be overloaded.

The administration nonetheless took a resigned approach to its spread. Mr. Obama didn’t close the Mexican border, saying that would “be akin to closing the barn doors after the horses are out.” His officials did declare a health emergency (Mr. Obama was golfing that day) and distributed the national stockpile (which they never replenished). The administration recommended schools “consider” closing if experiencing an outbreak, though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief said this might not help with spread and warned about taking kids out of classrooms. No one considered a national lockdown, especially not an administration focused on a fragile economic recovery. Mr. Obama promised to “control” the “impact” of the virus—not the virus itself. He asked Congress for all of $1.5 billion.

Authorities grew more optimistic as H1N1 turned out to be less deadly than had been feared, but they still faced the risk of an uglier strain in the fall. Team Obama promised 100 million doses of vaccine by mid-October. (A flu vaccine is easier to produce than a coronavirus vaccine). But government setbacks in production, manufacturing and dosing protocols resulted in only 11 million doses, prompting national outrage. By that point, the CDC estimated 22 million Americans had been infected, 36,000 children hospitalized, and 540 kids had died.

[End]

Guess who the Obama administration mainly relied upon for advice during that epidemic: Anthony Fauci. In yesterday’s interview, Biden said “we can’t get the economy going again until we control the virus.” Anthony Fauci has been in this job for more than 40 years and in all that time has failed to control a single virus.

If we keep listening to that little menace, it will be our nation’s downfall.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The riots raged on in Portland for the 84th straight night, as the Democrat-sponsored and funded rioters grew increasingly violent and aggressive, safe in the knowledge that, if arrested, they will quickly be released by the local Soros-funded District Attorney.

Here is some of what the great Andy Ngo informed us about overnight:

In response to last night’s Democrat-sponsored mayhem, President Trump tweeted a plea to communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown to request federal help:

But the Democrats love this stuff – it is their creation, after all. So, the President will be waiting in vain for his desired invitation.

If you live in Portland and have the means to get out of there, now’s the time. Because it’s only going to get worse.

That is all.

CDC Pushes the Latest False Narrative About “Controlling” COVID-19

You are the frog, and they are slowly boiling you. – In March, the CDC, along with doctors Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, assured President Trump that we could control the viral gift from China if we just had everyone stay at home for two weeks. “Two weeks to flatten the curve,” they said. Remember that? I do.

Then, when that didn’t work, the CDC, along with doctors Fauci and Birx, assured us all that we could control the Wuhan virus if we all stayed home for another month, washed our hands 32 times a day and practiced something called “social distancing” whenever we went out to the grocery store. Remember that? I do.

When that didn’t work either, the CDC and doctors Fauci and Birx, after having spent two months telling us all that masks don’t really do a damn thing to stop the spread of this Chinese plague, suddenly did an about face and began assuring us that, hey, all data and science to the contrary, we really can slow the spread of the virus if we would just practice social distancing, wash our hands 32 times a day, and wear a mask. Dr. Birx even told us that we should turn the masks into a fun thing, a fashion statement like her omni-present scarves. Remember that? I do.

We’ve since been put through another dozen or two story changes by the CDC and doctors Fauci and Birx, and today the story from the CDC is changing again, and they’re putting it in multiple choice terms. From a story at CNBC:

The U.S. could get the coronavirus pandemic under control if most Americans wear masks, embrace social distancing and practice good hand hygiene for up to three months, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

“It’s in our hands, within our grasp,” CDC Director Robert Redfield told reporters on a conference call. “But it is going to require all of us to embrace these mitigation steps. And we’re going to need to do that four, six, eight, 10, 12 weeks and then we will see this outbreak under control.”

[End]

Get that? We can “control” the coronavirus in either 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 weeks, according to CDC Director Redfield.

What does this tell us? Well, pardon my language, but it tells us that Dr. Redfield doesn’t have a god damn clue whether or not he and his worthless agency can ever “control” this virus. Which is not at all surprising, given that, since its founding 76 years ago, the CDC has never been able to “control” any of the common, seasonal flu viruses that preceded COVID-19.

Oh, and guess what else? Despite all the assurances we have received from Redfield, Birx and especially Fauci over the past 5 months that what we really need is a “vaccine,” that story is now shifting as well. Early this week, Fauci admitted that any “vaccine” will probably not be more than 50% effective, i.e., just like the “vaccines” we’re supposed to take every year for the seasonal flu.

But it gets even better than that.

Today, the criminals who run the World Health Organization went even further, stating that, even after we have a “vaccine,” life will not return to “normal.”

This is all a huge fraud, folks. We are dealing with a virus that is no more deadly than the seasonal flu, a virus that impacts mainly the elderly and people with major pre-existing health issues, and we are being scammed by government officials to behave as if we are Londoners during the Nazi Blitzkrieg.

We are even terrorizing our young kids in the process. Check this out:

This 7 year-old child will be scarred for life by this incident. Anyone who has ever been in trouble at school knows you retain those memories forever. And we are doing this to our children all over this country right now. It is madness, it is abusive, it is cruel and it should be criminal for adults to treat children like this.

Yet our government officials, especially Democrats, and the media ghouls who function as their propaganda agents completely approve of this stuff.

You are the frog, and they are boiling you. The question is, how long will you take this societal madness before things start to boil over?

That is all.
