In their latest act of degeneracy disguised as virtue, the Progressive Wokesters of Washington failed again to nail that old orange coonskin to the wall. Rather, they only embarrassed themselves in the effort, even as far as submitting faked evidence. You’d think there would be some penalty for dishonoring Congress like that, but Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has for now just skated for submitting doctored Twitter posts to the court of senators.

Watch now as some Wokeness-inflamed DC prosecutor is enlisted by the Lawfare beagles to charge former President Trump with a catalog of crimes under the city’s ordinary statutes. They’ll get a conviction pronto in a local DC court for sure — considering the town’s demographics — and then the appeals will drag on well into the next ice age. In the meantime, as long as he remains healthy, and evades assassin’s bullets, Mr. Trump will go after his antagonists in Congress like a mad dog toward the 2022 midterm. Mr. Swalwell had better learn to code. Or maybe his talents are more attuned to hackery.

The impeachment loss, which was predetermined by simple math, seems to have only driven Nancy Pelosi crazier, perhaps because there are no more traps she can lay for the ex-president, or maybe because her managers’ strategy was revealed to be so shamelessly dishonest. Now she must turn her attention to the Woke agenda, which, she may sense, will only accelerate a cratering US economy — things like the inane Green New Deal and open borders and disabling what’s left of the American oil industry. Good luck with your to-do list, Nance!

Mr. Biden, rumored to be president — or at least regarding himself as such — has been proclaiming the wish to “unite” the warring tribes of America. He may say so, but he doesn’t really mean it, not one little bit, and everybody knows it. Every executive order he’s issued his first month on-the-job is designed as much as a slap in the face to more than half the country as it is an actual policy goal. He’s only succeeded in demonstrating that Progressive Wokery is a badly manufactured pseudo-reality based on vengeance fantasies and the wish to coerce the people who didn’t vote for him — who probably outnumbered the ones that did, a galling authentic reality.

This played out dramatically last week in a telephone parley between Mr. Biden and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the governor’s refusal to lockdown his state. The world-famous Dr. Fauci was also on the call, in which Mr. Biden threatened to curtail American citizens travel to Florida by road and air — since an offshoot of Covid-19 policy has been to drive a huge demographic exodus from the economically failing states of New York, Illinois, and California down there. He also threatened to withhold federal funding to Florida and deny the state access to Covid-19 vaccines. Dr. Fauci chimed in, “Governor, do you want to be responsible for reinfecting the nation? Truth is, we don’t even know how effective current vaccines are against the UK strain.”

DeSantis told Dr. Fauci he trusted his own state health authorities over financially incentivized federal officials. The conclusion of the conference call went like this:

  How much do you stand to earn from these vaccines, Dr. Fauci? And, Joe, if you continue with this course of action, I will authorize the state National Guard to protect the movement of Floridians,” DeSantis said.

“Address me as Mr. President or President Biden,” Biden said.

“I will not, and you can go fuck yourself,” DeSantis said before hanging up.

Hmmm. Now, that got right to the point, didn’t it?  And consider this was not just Citizen Joe Blow mouthing off to alleged President Joe B, but the governor of a populous state. And what if it suggests a trend?

Another obvious and disconcerting irony in that affair was, of course, that Mr. Biden seeks to restrict the movement of people across Florida’s borders for fear of spreading new strains of Covid-19, while he insolently authorizes thousands of illegal aliens to cross our border with Mexico daily, with no testing for the virus. Could Mr. Biden’s intentions look any worse?

The calls for “unity” are a dodge. Unity requires broad consensual reality, not cynically-constructed pseudo-realities designed to cancel any notion of the common good, a common culture, or the public interest. Without Mr. Trump capering in the spotlight, all you see and hear is the clunky stage machinery of a dangerous mass entertainment aimed at crude mind-fuckery. Going forward, the frail and illegitimate Joe Biden is center-stage in that spotlight. He’s already screwed the pooch on so-called “policy” in less than a month, but the brutal facts of America’s crippled economy are crashing down on him and his Woke managers like the wrath of history. How long will it be before he just gets the hook?

    The impeachment trial was more about keeping Trump from ever running again and they failed again. The idea that Trump will unload on all the Swamp Creatures is plain silly because he won’t. He had way too many opportunities to do so and did not.

    Trump’s biggest problem is going bankrupt again because he’s in the hospitality business and the hospitality business is in a state of depression. He’s losing billions on all those basically empty Trump Hotels and Casinos.

      They will fill back up after the crisis passes. He is the only president in a long while that left the WH with less money then when he entered.

      All you folks that said he profited from his term, as usual, you lie!

        But when will the crisis pass?

        I believe they can keep kicking this can for years, perhaps decades.

          Face masks until 2022. Correction: TWO face masks until 2022.

          Common Core math. If one mask does nothing, what is two times nothing?

            It doesn’t stop until they get the medical tyranny in place. We have seen what they propose — vaccination cards to document yearly shots, and the use of the mask as a psychological tool to force the change.

            The only way it stops is if people refuse it.

            The amount of money to be funneled into the hands of these criminals is nearly limitless.

          Third Coast

          The crisis will pass when the Empire devolves into a series of regional nations that provide a home/refuge for the incompatible citizens of the former USA.

          “The Natural Nations of North America”

          New England
          The Confederacy
          Cuba del Norte
          Greater Texas
          Flyover
          Californica
          Cascadia
          Mexico
          British Canada
          Quebec
          Islandia

          Plus the city states of WestButtFuck (SF) and Ponziland (NY) ruled as separate kingdoms with laws suited to their citizens unique perversions

          The boundaries of the North American Nations are natural, but since they involve humans they will be fought over until a stalemate is finally arrived at and red lines drawn in blood in the dirt.

          • ThorsHammer February 15, 2021 at 1:25 pm #

            We can only hope that “Go Fu–K yourself” is the first step toward Florida being re-united with The Island That Shall Not Be Mentioned to form Cuba del Norte.

            Since Cuba has 2.8 as many doctors per capita as any other country in the world that would instantly upgrade the doctor patient ratio in the territory formerly known as Florida. And if they brought with them their medicines and treatment protocols they would stand a better chance of completely overcoming Corvid.

          • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 3:04 pm #

            The problem with Cuba del Norte is that the two Cubas can’t stand each other. Real Cubans aren’t named Fanjul and don’t drink Bacardi.

          • benr February 15, 2021 at 3:46 pm #

            Cuban doctors what a laugh!

            When Fidel had a problem with twisted intestines he flew in the best Spanish doctor money could buy.
            He did not trust his own doctors trained in Cuba.
            What does that tell you?
            One thing for thee but the best for me!

            Big Black Bird

            I agree that Cuba del Norte is not a marriage made in Heaven!

            At the very least it would take a complete banning of the CIA from physical and propaganda attacks on the territory and a generation or two to out grow the hatreds accumulated on both sides. As the economic status of the former USA deteriorates the lessons learned in Cuba from surviving decades of poverty might come in handy in del Norte. It is an open question as to whether Cuban values of class solidarity would survive the lure of materialism. The millions of retirees might welcome a free, universal health care system where they no longer need worry about medical bankruptcy and homelessness as they did when they were a part of the USA.

            I certainly wouldn’t wager my money on the likelihood of the marriage between Cuban culture and Miami culture working with today’s cultural divide. The Cubans I’ve known came here for a reason.built businesses,and raised their kids as gringos. I can’t imagine them driving a Cuban patchwork car instead of a Mercedes Benz! Or being a campesino tilling the land behind a mule instead of being a street drug dealer.

            But a marriage uniting peoples with common ancestral roots might happen if they meet as castoffs of the collapse of the global ponzi scheme.

            And after all, where better does the former Florida fit in the Disunited States of America? Certainly not in the Confederacy!

          • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 8:26 pm #

            Hammer,

            Yes, the intentional division between Cuban exiles and Cuban citizens will make any reunion bloody and a loss for one side (guess which side). The (apparent) transcendence of materialism is a major accomplishment of post-revolution Cuba – but when you have nothing, it’s easy not to take it too seriously.

            Visit Cuba and then try to support US policy – not easy.

            The problem with the “go fuck yourself” quote is…it seems to be a lie. What is the source?

        • abbybwood February 15, 2021 at 1:44 pm #

          I predict Joe will be out by May Day with Carmalita installed as a diversion.

          Right about that time we will find out which citizens are filing papers to run against every Senator and Representative who came out against Trump, who is up for re-election next November and the race will be on.

          I think Nancy and the managers may have one more card up their sleeve to prevent Trump from ever holding any public office again, including dog catcher.

          We will know very soon if Pelosi is going to play that card or fold.

          I kind of hope she is arrogant and stupid enough to play it. Not sure though if that particular piece of legislation would need a simple majority or super-majority to pass.

          Hopefully Tucker will have Jonathan Turley or some other Constitutional scholar on his show to explain the possibilities.

          • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 3:26 pm #

            Thank you Abby for your courageous prediction. Somewhere in today’s article I heard Mr. K. calling out for those with vision to describe the future for those who spend their time more earthly endeavors. I predict The Big Guy will be out by Memorial Day – in time to ignite Summer of Hate 2.0. May Day is good too for obvious reasons. Same for April Fool’s Day. However I don’t feel as strongly about this as I did the New New Madrid Quake of 12/12/12, or several of my Red Queen hypotheses. But hey, it’s not called prophylactic prognostication for nothing.

            First bonus question: How is The Big Guy dispensed with? My guess: Covid! “Damn you Trump! You killed the greatest statesman of our time (except Barry and Big Mike and Bill and Hills and…)!”

            Extra bonus question: Once Ms Kamal is Top Dog, who will she dredge up as her number two? To me this is the big question. One with a big answer. An answer so obvious that I won’t insult Mr. K’s readers by spelling it out.

        • Epicur February 15, 2021 at 6:33 pm #

          With cases, hospitalizations, and deaths appearing to peak it is possible that we have reached “herd immunity” much sooner than was generally thought – although it was predicted we would do so by some very sharp analysts.

          There have long been signs of latent immunity in a substantial portion of the population from exposure to coronavirus common colds. We may have reached a level where that is beginning to have effect on the pandemic.

          BTW, this peaking began to take shape before vaccines could have affected the statistics to any meaningful degree.

          • Rodster February 15, 2021 at 7:15 pm #

            But that wasn’t or isn’t the goal of Anthony Fauci, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates and George Soros. The idea is to create a never ending fear among the global population i.e. The Plebs.

            This is ALL being done to collapse the global eCONomy, eliminate physical currencies and usher in Klaus Schwab’s utopia i.e. the “4th industrial revolution” which is all designed around the New Green Deal.

            You don’t need to be a doctor or health professional to know that it’s “herd immunity” which puts the lid on a pandemic and this was not a serious enough pandemic suck as the Spanish Flu, Hong Kong Flu or the Black Plague.

            But that’s what the globalists and politicians around the world wanted to convince the general public that Covid 19 was a monster.

            What is a monster are the bullshit vaccines that were rushed to market which according to Nora O’Donnell, CBS News Anchor makes 80% of those who take the vaccines sick (moderate to severe side effects) and it kills the elderly because they are too frail to deal with the side effects.

            These bastards should be imprisoned for the fake out they pulled over the world and Fauci has his fingerprints all over the Wuhan strain because he was visiting that lab.

        Trump can do some damage in red states, but only if they don’t have Dominion machines or their electoral process controlled by traitors in general. How many states is that? Which ones?

          The virus was the excuse, but once you allow something like that, any old excuse will do.

            I liked the way Russia did that snap election in Crimea.

            They had many precincts open with large clear boxes on the tables and simple slips of paper for folks to vote to stay in Ukraine or go back to Russia.

            At the end of the day the boxes were emptied out and the people counted the votes in front of everyone then the total for the region was tabulated.

            The people voted overwhelmingly to go back to Russia.

            THAT was a transparent election!

        No, John – he profited mightily until the pandemic hit. (Read “The Dark Towers” by David Ena for some of the most public details).

        If he’d taken the pandemic seriously, he could, along with the rest of the economy, be in recovery already. Instead, he’s watching as revenues tank and values plummet, plus the looming spectres of criminal charges for fraud.

        Now, without his social media platform, he’s having a hard time grafting cash from the rubes, as well. It’s all looking a little sad for Donny. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.

          • Ron Anselmo February 15, 2021 at 3:03 pm #

            Think again Noel. If Disney & Universal closed down, it would be fine. Orange County is one of our 12 (out of 67) counties in Florida that is a blue cesspool. Better it be drained anyway.

            Longtime native Floridians can remember when Orlando was a wide spot in the road with a gas station. Better then, it was.

            Given our druthers, we’d give up northern dollahs any day, if only the “woke” northerners would stay out as well. Of course, our door is open to northerners of sound mind.

            Woke northerners need to stay put, and if possible, please make some room for woke southerners. Believe it or not, we have a few we’d like to send your way.

          Yes, no doubt Mr. Ena has some bombshell information that Messrs. Mueller and Weissman were unable to utilize during their epic 2-year unlimted-purview investigation of the President.

          Given how many folks in law seem to have it out for Trump, it sure is amazing that all of this information can’t be put into a case that holds water enough for one of their corrupt judge friends to work with it.

          Trump must be one of the cleanest individuals in history. It is truly impressive how absolutely nothing sticks.

        DeSantis pulled the Florida Guardsman long ago, maybe the first. Having served, he told Pelosi they are not her “toy soldiers”.

        Never thought I’d say that I’m in love with a man, but my crush on DeSantis just keeps growing. He keeps saying all the things I want to hear.

      The Hunter scandal did come out, and since the MSM wouldn’t report it, it’s as if it never happened.

      BIden’s daughter published a diary where she states he inappropriately showered with her.

      Hunter had a masturbation and crack-smoking foot job video widely circulated. Crickets from the MSM.

      Hunter’s texts about walking around naked in front of his niece while smoking crack came out. Not a peep.

      • Night Owl February 15, 2021 at 3:47 pm #

        There were dozens of videos of Hunter’s underaged sex hijinx.

        I posted a link way back — a site from a group of Chinese dissidents that had hacked a treasure trove of material.

        The guy is exactly as you would imagine him. A cheeseball kidult who fucks underaged prostitutes and shakes down government officials using Joe’s VP status.

        There were also some videos and photos that were very interesting in context with the underaged family relative he was supposedly messing around with.

        • MaryV February 15, 2021 at 7:30 pm #

      Unity, so called or otherwise, is non existent. There is an abundance of scandal surrounding the Biden clan, It has made no difference what so ever. Joe Biden is completely undeserving of any respect. A hat tip to Desantis for saying what a lot of people would like to be able to do.

  4. Zoltar February 15, 2021 at 10:15 am #

    Biden was never more than a place-holder, serving as a Trojan horse to sneak the unelectable Harris into the Oval Office. The Dems are saving that gambit for what they hope will be the most politically opportune moment, but there will be no such moment in these times, and Harris as president will only further inflame the outrage of the majority who voted against Biden.

    As for Trump’s revenge against his persecutors, I remain eager to see that, and as doubtful as ever that it will happen. Perhaps, if the Republican establishment wanted it, but not with many of them circling the wagons with the other half of the Uniparty.

    For want of any organizational or political skills, Trump will eventually have to cede the loyalty of his followers to someone who possesses that tool kit.

    • bluedog February 15, 2021 at 10:24 am #

      Trump had them right where it hurts, but he lacked the courage to squeeze them, he could have exposed the whole rotten mess seeing there were republicans in the stealing of the presidency but for the good of the party he chickened out and in doing so that party is dead like its predecessor the old Whig Party, and it will end up the same way delegated to the dust bin of history, the party of big business Wall Street and the bankers and in itself that not really a bad idea, !!

No one could have guessed the corruption was as bad as it is.

        The open theft of the election is unprecedented in US history, and I think the majority of well-intentioned individuals in this country are still trying to comprehend just how bad it is.

        Well, I think that’s kinda true. If you have spent time working with doctors in the medical world you probably understand better maybe. He reminds me of many doctors in the past I’ve worked with. Many doctors talk out of both sides of their mouths.

        On one hand, doctors want to be seen as the “experts” many of them are, but on the other hand, they have an aversion to put their necks on the line for fear of looking foolish to their colleagues, and be open to litigation. Which are both natural tendencies I’d argue. however…the CDC numbers say that 99%+ of all demographics who contract covid survive, and the most risk remains in the most elderly cohorts.

    Good morning. I was going to call my state legislator again this morning, but I remembered it is a holiday. Federal holidays only are a day off work for those in government nowadays, but even those who haven’t been showing up for work are observing them.

    I did call him back in the spring, with a suggestion that the legislature take back their power (and their responsibilities) from the governor.

    I knew back then that Governor Andrew Cuomo had recklessly caused the untimely deaths of thousands of elderly people, although I did not mention it iin my call.

    I see bunch of New York elected officials are just now noticing that this happened, and getting indignant about it.

    If I knew about it way back when it happened, how could they all have missed it?

    Why is it only Andrew being looked at? Weren’t there five states included in AG Barr’s “investigation”?

          Obviously, even if Covid doesn’t exist, Cuomo et al. issued orders to put INFECTED people into nursing homes. I ran an assisted living and memory care facility for 1.5 years, and so I know that even putting a person with a cold in there can easily result in a few deaths.

            I agree that this virus is probably the same thing that comes around every year, or at least I did at first. My daughter is an RN and she tells me that this is different. She mentioned turning the patients over on their stomach to cough up a black effluent that is unlike anything else. Still the 99% survival rate is true and it is older people or ones with other medical issues that are most at risk. Also, the facility she works in is giving covid patients Ivermectin, but not early enough in the progression of the disease to do much good. My understanding is it should be taken immediately upon becoming ill. People are testing positive and then being sent home before symptoms appear, with instruction not to go to the hospital unless they are ill. Too little, too late.

    • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 4:12 pm #

    It’s interesting to note that Snopes reports that DeSantis can’t have told Biden to fuck himself because the corporate press did not report it.

      And yes, their reasoning that it didn’t happen is because no major network reported it.

      The reason they’re not reporting it is because it makes Biden look weak and DeSantis look like a hero…last thing they want is people supporting a contrarian with a set of stones.

          The beauty of that “fact check” is that they claim it was based on hearsay, so it is “false.”

          If it was based on hearsay, would it not be correct to label it as “unconfirmed”?

          The question is of course purely rhetorical, because Snopes is about as serious as Newsguard.

          • Tekapo February 15, 2021 at 10:38 pm #

            “If it was based on hearsay, would it not be correct to label it as “unconfirmed”?”

            I would generally agree, but the story in realrawnews didn’t quote even an anonymous source, and more suspiciously, wrote the story from the very first sentence as if it were fact.

            They really needed to include in the first par something along the lines of “… from a reliable source who was in the room [or on the call, or something similar]”. Especially when you use direct quotes.

            The writer would fail Journalism Ethics 101. If there is such a course!

          • Night Owl February 16, 2021 at 3:22 am #

            In other words, Raw did what CNN, WaPo, NYT, and co. have been doing for the past four years.

            Then Snopes claimed the reporting was false, which is both hypocritical as well as a case of low-IQ reasoning.

            And these are your trusted news sources.

        “And yes, their reasoning that it didn’t happen is because no major network reported it.”

        To quote Snopes,
        “In early February 2021, social media users shared a story published by a website called Real Raw News that reported without evidence that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had told U.S. President Joe Biden, “Go f— yourself
        [..]
        But there is no evidence that DeSantis swore at Biden by telling him to “go f— yourself.”

        Are you saying that the only evidence Snopes considers is reporting by a major network? What about someone who was there or listening in confirming it? Where’s the tape? Where is that evidence?

        Personally, I’d think more highly of De Santis if he didn’t say it. I don’t care how much you hate Biden. Even if restricting air travel is a stupid idea, are they going to restrict cars and trucks, too, etc.

          “Even if restricting air travel is a stupid idea, are they going to restrict cars and trucks, too, etc.”

          Yes. They are. Wait for it…

          And for the record I just find this story amusing, assuming it happened.

          I don’t hate Biden any more than the next guy. Though I do think he should be playing shuffleboard or quilting, rather than occupying one of the most stressful and demanding jobs in the world (or so they say, at least).

    • sevensec February 15, 2021 at 5:48 pm #

      …but of course! If the Ministry of Truth has not reported a thing, *it does not exist*.

      And yet on some level, Our Betters—whether at Snopes, in academia, at the NYT, or in the DNC—are proving so completely inept at creating this alternate reality of their woke-somnambulist dreams that it is hard to know whether to actually worry, or just laugh in contempt.

      Of course there has always been an Overton Window—part of having a *common culture* implies that some subjects come naturally while others are de-emphasized and kept to the margins (or as the case may be,*in the closet*).

      Maybe the most fascinating thing is the way America’s Overton Window has lately become, so to speak, *too* transparent. Anyone with an IQ over 95 now sees the incandescent stupidity on the other side, and instinctively despises the professional purveyors of such gobbledygook. (And reaches for a good rock to throw—if the time is right—)

      I mean, how much can you really fear a bunch of censorious totalitarians when they are so flagrantly *bad* at actually convincing anyone–and whose motives are so obviously bad, delusional, and dumb? Or is this the secret of totalitarianism—that while almost no one really *believes* the official propaganda, almost everyone still has to pretend to believe it?

      (From what I can judge, this is very much what Soviet life was like. True Believers were rare, while the amount of passive cynicism and gallows humor was stratospheric.)

    Predictably, the JoeBama administration has to be against kids in public school getting the education they are entitled to.

        One of Biden’s pre-election stands was to get all kids back to school within 100 days — remember? Now he’s saying that “teachers should be treated like healthcare workers” which makes no sense since children are the LEAST likely to get the virus. Bait and switch.

      • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 4:24 pm #

        Thank you Liars. Yes, what you said. If nothing else, use this (the Corona crackdown/lockdown/freakout) as an opportunity to take back responsibility for raising your own damn kids.

        • Night Owl February 16, 2021 at 3:26 am #

          Indeed, Black. We have more or less been home schooling our son for about 2 months now.

          Not only is he learning faster, but he also isn’t spending 6 hours inhaling his own exhaust through a fabric petri dish.

      Yeah, it’s sick. I’ll give you another: Trump capped drug prices for lifesaving insulin and epipens, so Biden reversed that first day in office. Insulin prices have jumped more than 600% in a month.

    • sevensec February 15, 2021 at 6:07 pm #

      Each time I hear supposed “conservatives” in high dudgeon over how “our children are suffering without their schooling”, I cringe—and not just because I still remember pretty clearly what public schooling in this country is actually like.

      Not only are the places indoctrination centers—overwhelmingly staffed by professional SJW liars, whose main “curriculum” is geared to help ensure your child will become hostile to you and your country by their twentieth year—but they are literally designed like prisons. (Now even more so, with those marvelous “Covid-proof” plexiglass cubicles! *Very* futuristic.)

      The cognitive dissonance involved in both realizing the role of the “educational system” in sowing our present chaos, whilst simultaneously pleading to send your own children *back* to that system, is fully on a par with Quisling Joe’s plan of shutting down Florida travel “because Covid” while allowing unchecked immigration with no testing.

      Unfortunately, this just indicates that most of our dear conservatives cannot think much more clearly than our Leftists. The sad thing is that thinking unclearly is the Leftists’ whole shtick—it is the source of their power. But the right should know better.

      • SW February 15, 2021 at 8:37 pm #

        The problem with no school is nothing will be taught to the majority of children. How will they learn basic skills like reading or simple math? The schools in many places are already doing a poor job of it but what is the alternative? Most parents either can’t or won’t take the time or have to work, to be able to fulfill this role. Homeschooling takes at least one parent full time (and hopefully) some skills in teaching kids.

        My maternal grandparents only went to the third grade in rural Kentucky but I still remember them reading the paper and the old Reader’s Digest. No, it wasn’t Dickens or Tolstoy but what would have happened if they had not had even minimal exposure?

        Public education with all its faults is better than no education or one where the child is plopped in front of a computer with no help or direction. It’s unfair to the kids too.

        • draupnir February 16, 2021 at 4:54 am #

          A relative of mine has always home schooled her kids. For the young ones it is only an hour or two a day, broken up. The older they become, the longer their school day, but it never gets to the amount of time kids in public school have, and they are better educated.

          • Tekapo February 16, 2021 at 11:57 pm #

            It takes a particular kind of devoted | dedicated parent to home-school their children for all their schooling. That will determine whether they are “better” educated – and of course attention must be paid to their social education, with lots of quality peer interaction as well.

            Hard work to do properly.

      Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) of viral disease is the concern: The mRNA vaccine causes the development of antibodies that actually enhance COVID19 infection, and so when the vaccinated do encounter the virus, kaboom! Be careful.

      • thirdcoastlegend February 15, 2021 at 11:24 am #

        If the mRNA injections turn one into a spike protein factory, it would seem they make a person more likely to fail one of the various tests.

        People failing tests could then be subjected to further travel and quarantine restrictions.

        • tresho February 15, 2021 at 3:03 pm #

          “it would seem they make a person more likely to fail one of the various tests.” With the large number of people so far vaccinated this possibility should already be ruled in or out, simply by tests currently in use. PCR tests don’t measure coronavirus spike proteins.

        • ThorsHammer February 16, 2021 at 8:17 pm #

          Had an interesting conversation with my personal doctor this afternoon. Asked how the test program was going in our little county. Seems they are testing like mad with the result that our county has a epidemic of new “cases”— the worst in the entire state. Asked what testing system was being used? The saliva quick test donated by a wealthy donor. (fifty % reliability, the same as flipping a coin)

          “So what happens when somebody tests positive for Corvid? Are they monitored daily by a paraprofessional who takes their temperature and notes any other signs of developing Corvid like in Cuba? Do they become a patient in your clinic?” No, they disappear into the ether and we never hear from them again unless they appear at the Hospital ER.

          “So have you been personally been vaccinated yet? With which vaccine? Moderna? Have you done your due diligence on the company history? You are aware that the company burned through 4 Billion $ of investors money trying to develop a mRNA drug delivery system for blockbuster drugs but never got to the point where human trials could begin because it was to dangerous? And then along came Corvid and a government guarantee against all liability.

          “What is your response to the Danish study of mask effectiveness I sent you a couple of weeks ago? Haven’t read it! But even if they are worthless it is city law that masks must be worn at all times and there is no point in risking my job to buck city hall.”

          “So since you have been recently vaccinated your antibody quick test should reveal traces of Corvid antibody fragments or proteins.You haven’t spit on a stick and been quick tested?
          “All that would do is force me to quarantine myself for two weeks.”

What’s the downside? You may die the next time a new variant strikes. Personally I think I’ll just opt out & take my chances. If that means I don’t get to wind through airports, gosh, guess I’ll just have to make that sacrifice. *sigh*

Most don’t even get sick. Of course they changed that when people weren’t afraid enough, so they brought out the 97% false-positives PCR test whose inventor said it should never be used to detect a virus. And all the lemmings fell for that, too.

            “A new study, involving over 25,000 school-aged children, shows that masks are harming schoolchildren physically, psychologically, and behaviorally, revealing 24 distinct health issues associated with wearing masks.

            The health issues and impairments observed in this study were found to affect 68% of masked children who are forced to wear a face covering for an average of 4.5 hours per day. The study also includes 17,854 health complaints submitted by parents.”

            You said she was 88 and in good health. My mother died at 88. Eighty-eight is a very decent innings.

            So, maybe you could try being gracious and just being happy that your healthy, non-moronic mother feels confident and able to make her own health decisions without feeling the need to kow-tow to the idées fixes of her overwrought daughter. I imagine that might please her.

            It’s a good thing that this is a new cottage industry, no? Now the whales can ingest piles of disposable masks full of all sorts of chemicals and nastiness.

            Nothing says “I love my fellow human” like suffocating yourself and inhaling your own effluvia all day!

          • GreenAlba February 16, 2021 at 11:16 am #

            Mary, I find you overwrought.

            Firstly, I am not aware of anyone here being asked to double mask. Nor would I do it myself.

            Secondly I have pointed out ad nauseam that I support people putting on a mask to go into a shop or on to a bus, and that I have personally not worn a mask for more than about 3 hours in toto in the last 12 months. I have also stated that (a) I don’t support children wearing them in school, because it’s completely pointless and (b) I observe that secondary school children, travelling in packs on buses, do not wear them, and that no-one even comments on it, not even the long-suffering driver.

            But I do observe that you seem to live in a more hysterical country.

            I will be generous and conclude that that is why you are extremely hysterical yourself.

          • GreenAlba February 16, 2021 at 11:21 am #

            And, btw, I haven’t thrown away a single mask.

            For the disposable ones, they may indeed find themselves disposed of in the long term. For now, since they get worn sometimes for two minutes at a time, I feel quite at liberty to wear them again once they’ve been left for a week for any virus on them to die.

            As I said, I find your overwrought. And that is when you are taking a rest from being outright hysterical, calling people a ‘sick mess’ for doing nothing more than correcting your untruths.

          • MaryV February 16, 2021 at 11:34 am #

            @GreenAlba if all you have is calling me ‘hysterical’ when others can clearly see I’m not, you’ve lost already.

            You are a mask-o-holic. You submit to the fearporn. You wear one.

            The mandates that push people to wear them are made by the same people shaming you into accepting a Green New Deal. while they have returned plastic bags to stores without any scientific basis for doing so, and creating the situation where masks are clogging the ocean.

            Thanks for playing your part.

            Interesting projection – calling others narcs and hysterics.

          • GreenAlba February 16, 2021 at 11:42 am #

            Once again, MaryV, you seem so overwrought that you have forgotten I don’t live in your hysterical country.

            So, no double masks, no Green New Deal, no Dr Fauci, and, certainly with regard to my grandson, no masks in school.

            But I note that you consider three hours of wearing a mask in a shop or a bus in 12 months as ‘fear porn’, so thanks for confirming your status as a hysteric.

            And, while you may have missed it, the entire ‘narc’ trope was introduced, somewhat inadvisedly, given his own personality, by your friend.

          • MaryV February 16, 2021 at 3:12 pm #

            Your country passed ‘hate speech’ laws. You’re on a downward spiral.

            If you think the US isn’t influencing your country, then you really are naive.

            Gates doesn’t just call the shots in the US. Look up the World Economic Forum. Look up WHO.

            You are under the same delusional lockdown lunacy we are. All western countries are.

            If you don’t have double masks now, you will, shortly.

            My hysterical country? LOL, yours caved to the Trans Agenda loonies hook, line and sinker. Nice try though.

            I am not pro-lockdown. I am pro people behaving responsibly so that full lockdowns may be avoided.

            And we will not be wearing double masks. I certainly won’t.

            BTW, you can’t just pick any random topic and call it hysteria, just because it suits your argument.

            For example, having transwomen compete in women’s sports is is misguided, stupid and unfair, IMHO. But it has little to do with hysteria per se.

            But nice try.

            Haha. Now there I agree with you. And not just in playing poodle to your past warmongering presidents, but in future as we kow-tow to your shameful agribusiness practices to beg for a trade deal.

            My long-dead mother used to say everything bad came from America.

            Now it’s everything mad, although I’ll grant you there’s some cross-fertilisation, the modern world being what it is.

      • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 4:45 pm #

        Thanks for bringing this (ADE) up. A very valid concern, especially since the increase in childhood vaccinations during the Fauci Regime (1984 – present), has correlated with an increase in auto-immune diseases, spread of HIV (yeah, he was the point man on that…), and a dramatic increase in both vaccination rates and – autism! Another concern, (that you won’t find expressed in most venues) is that the spike protein of “the Covid virus” is similar to syncytin-1 a protein involved in placental formation. There is concern (immediately dismissed in conventional sources) that the mRNA “vaccine” (NOT a vaccine) may result in targeting syncytin-1 resulting in lowered fertility. But that’s a good thing, since it means less of both you and me in the future.

      • sevensec February 15, 2021 at 6:13 pm #

        ADE is a definite issue with coronaviruses, but I’m more worried about the possibility that a “leaky” vaccine could actually select for deadlier viral strains–this reverses the normal selection pressure that makes viruses *less* deadly to their hosts. With a leaky vaccine, the virus can now become as virulent as it likes without killing the patient and without reducing its chances of spreading.

        It’s hard to get good information, but it looks likely that the vaccines being put out for Covid don’t fully prevent transmission.

      • MaryV February 16, 2021 at 12:19 pm #

        Re: Pfizer vaccine – here’s a study that’s come out.

        Abstract:

        Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARSCoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In
        this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine
        recipients. The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the
        potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma
        (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences
        that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations. In the current analysis a total
        of sixteen UG tandem repeats (?G?G) were identified and additional UG (?G) rich sequences were identified. Two
        GG?A sequences were found. Potential G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but a more sophisticated
        computer program is needed to verify these. Furthermore, the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine
        RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential
        to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic
        prion configuration. The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause
        ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases. The
        enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the
        RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit.

    • GreenAlba February 16, 2021 at 8:58 am #

      JohnAZ

      Thank you for your good wishes (they can be in short measure hereabouts!).

      I didn’t get anything beyond an hour or so of being a bit shivery the first night, plus being too tired to do anything much the following day. Second day I was right as rain. I didn’t even get a sore arm.

      I have heard that the second injection can be a bit more of an inconvenience, but for a similar length of time, so I’ll be prepared for that, and an excuse to have a duvet day will be perfectly fine, if it is justified (and perhaps even if it isn’t).

      I recall two instances of an absolutely natural event – pregnancies in my late 20s/early 30s), which involved being sick as a dog every waking minute for a total of 12 months, to the point where it made me absolutely unwilling to consider a third.

      Compared to that, I am not likely to be wimpish regarding 24 hours of light unpleasantness.

    The Turtle said that, while GGG was acquitted, he hasn’t escaped punishment for “inciting” the Capitol “siege.” Of course, Mitch is beholden to the same Beijing interests that have the entire Biden clan on leashes, so why wouldn’t he bark too when GGG escaped yet again?

    Speaking of Trump escaping the Swamp, it appears Trump narrowly escaped an assassination attempt by somebody:

    https://realrawnews.com/2021/02/trump-assassination-attempt-new-details-suggest-drone/

    You’d think the Navy wouldn’t want to whack Trump, except the officer corps is riddled with Wokesters and others who believe Trumpism is a threat because it goes against the status quo in Washington, including influence-peddling in the Pentagon and environs (the Crystal City Pirates, as Tom Clancy called them).

    Finally, on another topic, I’m glad to see some actual anger directed at America’s Governor, the talking sphincter known as Prince Andrew Cuomo. Not only has he lied about his coronavirus expertise and appeared in de fact comedy skits on his brother Fredo’s tv show, but he’s repeatedly fucked over state employees by forcing them to work without contracts for several years, then demanding they vote for him “or else.” But, of course nothing will happen to him because he’s a Democrat in a Democrat state, and he opposed the terrible Orange Man. How wonderfully ironic it would be if the Wokester AG Cuomo maneuvered into office specifically to hound Trump, Leticia James, proves to be the little bastard’s undoing instead.

    • Beryl of Oyl February 15, 2021 at 10:52 am #

      Notice how every time it snows, Andrew has to get out there in the media and direct the DOT to do the fine job there were doing long before Andrew held any office?

      He puts those polo shirts on, gets in front of a camera, and pretends he’s some sort of working man.

      I was thinking, how minor was Democrat Eliot Spitzer’s transgression, compared to Andrew’s, yet he resigned the governorship.

      There is finally serious talk of rescinding Andrew’s emergency powers, at least.

      Both Andrew and his dad seemed to enjoy kicking the state workers. I thought the Democrats were supposed to be supportive of public employees.

        According to Michael Weiner, er Savage on a show at least 10 years ago, Spitzer announced an investigation into insider trading on Wall Street. Within days, the story of Spitzers’s assignations hit the news, he resigned in disgrace, and the people of New York got a “go along to get along” placeholder named David Patterson to fill in till the Cuomo dynasty could be re-imposed, er restored to power.

        A friend of a friend knows both Cuomo and Spitzer and says Cuomo is the most miserable bastard she’s ever met, while Spitzer is a really good, kind man who unfortunately strayed and literally fucked himself out of his dream job.

        (I don’t listen to Savage. He’s a two-faced bastard. However, this one story certainly seems to be accurate, given how quickly Spitzer got the gate after threatening dirty money. Kinda sounds a bit like GGG.)

    Well, using coersion, brute force and the Climate Change dodge, this group may very well be able to cripple the oil, coal and natgas industries. They have the power to do it. But then they’d have to step up and make good with their green energy claims. Can the US really be run on solar panels and windmills? I believe we will soon find out. If motor fuel goes to $10 per gallon and people in Michigan and Wisconsin are freezing to death in February because natgas pipelines have been decommissioned, it’ll be on the Climate Czar and Sleepy Joe.

    The psychotic hatred of the President by Pelosi was vividly on display. To surpass the, until this, most ineptly political impeachment in our history, (and considering the violence associated with 1800’s politics, this is some feat), takes hatred over ANY rational thinking.

      Thank you. It’s a shot. That’s the only similarity it has with vaccines. It’s purported medical benefits remain to be seen.

      Vaccines got a really bad, justifiably bad, reputation when they started giving toddlers huge numbers of them in a short period of time, damaging their delicate nervous systems in some cases – irreparably.
      Adult humans have little tolerance for mercury. Small children even less.

      • rainmaker February 15, 2021 at 12:51 pm #

        I used to have horses. Of course the vets want to vaccinate against everything, every year. I finally had to put a stop to it because of adverse reactions, some life threatening. Other horse people said the same.

        • tresho February 15, 2021 at 3:54 pm #

          “I used to have horses. Of course the vets…” I used to have wisdom teeth. Of course practically all the dentists I have seen in the last 65 years have advised me to have my wisdom teeth extracted. I have always declined that option. It is not only true that “I used to have wisdom teeth” but it is also true that “I still have all my wisdom teeth.”

          • RocketDoc February 15, 2021 at 10:25 pm #

            As a dentist I recommend taking out all wisdom teeth that are a problem. I would prefer to fix them since it’s more remunerative but If yours are not a problem–great! Sometimes people don’t know they are having a problem on their 2nd molars and since they are more important than the 3rds, they might be advised to extract.

        • MaryV February 16, 2021 at 10:59 am #

        A bullet in my head vs. a vaccine – “it’s a shot”!
        “Adult humans have little tolerance for mercury”, NO tolerance to mercury – damn spell-checker! The FDA has determined that there is NO safe level of mercury for adult ingestion, yet the concentration of mercury (and also of aluminum – not yet discussed) was higher than the (considered to be safe) adult level in CHILDREN’S vaccines…

        But I’m sure it’s all for our benefit.

        • RocketDoc February 15, 2021 at 10:37 pm #

          My father was also a dentist and in the 50’s I enjoyed playing with mercury. I would put a blob on a table divide it into quarters and then flick it to try and get it to re-combine. I am 68 and expecting to die any day from it or perhaps Covid. I had my two Pfizer shots but took the smallpox vaccine 3 times and could never get it to fester and “take” like it was supposed to. Thank goodness they eradicated that disease. I feel fine so will let the world know if I get some queer novel symptoms. The skeptical can have a go with the disease and we’ll see how it shakes out. Freedom’s great.

            I recall dropping a mercury thermometer on the bathroom floor decades ago – trying to round it up was a nightmare. I don’t recall what I did with it in the end.

            But I’m still chomping on a few amalgam fillings from way back (and I mean really way back). I panicked (that was the plan, I think) when everyone started freaking out about amalgam fillings, and some were replaced as time went on, and especially as vanity took precedence over necessity. But I gather they’re pretty stable and I did read, even back at the time of the ‘scare’, that more harm was done by the mercury vapour generated by removing them than by just leaving them alone. I find such scares are soon replaced by another scare anyway. Perhaps it was aluminium cooking pans … (yes, I replaced them too).

            So here I am, also at 68, entirely unharmed. And the crowns I had done for nothing when I was pregnant (the NHS offers free treatment to pregnant women till their child is 12 months old) are also stuck on with amalgam, I think – they are still rock solid despite their 40 years of hard work and I expect them to see me out.

            I agree with you that freedom’s great. That’s why I have (a) accepted the vaccination and (b) signed the ‘no vaccine passports’ petition on the UK government’s petitions website.

            Thanks for your many level headed comments. It’s amazing how recklessly vituperative people can be. Bluster is so unseemly.
            Mercury and open source radiation did kill some dentists but since the mid-70s the pre-packaged amalgam capsules have prevented the over rich mixing dentists used to do. I still recommend amalgam often because the composites can leak and wear poorly…
            I have worn a mask at work since 1984. It is so obviously prudent it should be embraced when necessary.
            I have never been particularly concerned about vaccines before–sometimes getting the flu shot sometimes not. I did a mission trip to Mexico several years ago and didn’t think at all about the requirement to get a yellow fever vaccine. But I don’t like the idea of requiring vaccine passports. I can’t stand security theater either and would eliminate the TSA and take my chances with the airlines instituting some boarding checks. I was worried about this vaccine though because 1)distrust about the cause of this pandemic, 2) the unholy Big Pharma-gov’t alliance to ignore alternative treatments that could have helped . There seems to be a lot of narrative management.
            But the facts of the disease are indisputable. Worldwide case fatality rate is 2% or 20 times regular flu. The lingering effects problem has not been statistically nailed down. In my state of Alabama no matter how you divide the geographic areas to analyze the morbidity, you get 4.2% death rate to cases and hospitalizations 12%. Playing Russian roulette is 16.7%. The Darwin awards can go to the unbelievers.

      The Pfizer and Moderna injections, as you correctly aver, invoke gene modification. Neither are vaccines in the traditional and commonly understood sense. They are also experimental and could not be made available for general use except in a “State of Emergency”. But why be worried? What could possibly go wrong? The AZ, J&J and Russian injections are traditional vaccines, from what I have learned.

      • Yohannon February 15, 2021 at 1:10 pm #

        I looked at Astra-Zenica and last night at the Sputnik: they are different from Pfizer and Moderna, but they are not vaccines either. I fear they may be just a different way of doing the same thing as the other two. But I don’t have enough knowledge to be sure.

        Look at Market Ticker’s (Denninger) article. This may be a genocide in the making. Either by enemy nations or by the Globalists themselves. Gates has promised something terrible is coming. Of course he said it would be a much worse natural virus – and not something cooked up to play off of the unnatural “vaccine” antibodies.

        • RocketDoc February 15, 2021 at 10:46 pm #

          Check out Israel’s experience with Pfizer. My patient last Thursday week missed his appointment and when I called his secretary to ask where he was, she said ICU. He died at 74. A very rich man. Life is risk. I don’t trust Big Pharma but it would be perplexing if they were actually trying to kill us all….. I simply thought it would be a good idea to take it before I recommended it to my children. Age before beauty as they say.

          • GreenAlba February 16, 2021 at 8:39 am #

            Well, that occurred to me too, RocketDoc. Why would you kill off your customers? Even viruses that do that are losers in the long run.

            Also, much is made of the fact that the pharma companies have declined any legal remedy should anyone wish to sue them.

            Much like the nuclear industry, which no private insurance company will underwrite, from what I’ve heard, yet I don’t hear people refusing power on that basis.

            Anyway, I recall how many years it took before people stopped almost spitting when they said ‘Hoffman LaRoche’ after the Stanley Adams case and ‘Nestlé’ after the baby milk scandal.

            I don’t believe any of them wants to become the Boeing of pharma companies.

        Do due diligence on the Moderna corporation as if you were planning to become a long term investor instead of merely injecting their product into your body. You will find that they were a typical biotech Ponzi who burned through 4 billion dollars attempting to develop mRNA delivery mechanisms to combat rare and incurable diseases. (The kind that could be patented and sold for $80,000 plus per procedure)

        Moderna never reached the point where they could begin live trials on human subjects as the mRNA medicines were too deadly.

        And then along came Corvid19 and the Gates world vaccination program.. The prospect of endless annual (or quicker) booster shots. A Government guarantee of complete protection against liability. A Government price support and purchase agreement. And the ability to use the entire population as guinea pigs for experimental testing with no cost or legal downside.

        If the U.S.A. breaks up, there is no doubt in my mind that Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina would all join together in a Ruby Red Republic along with numerous other non-Southern states. I even think NC and VA will join once they are through purging their boundaries of out-of-state, non-native interlopers from outside of the South.

        Honestly, Most of New England and all of the Left Coast should be EXPELLED from the union.

    Someone drew my attention to this article at American Thinker, The Intellectuals’ Assault On Intelligence.

    “The current class of intellectuals, whether inside the universities or outside as a product thereof, now flout the principles of logic and reason far more than their relentlessly mocked uneducated rubes ever did. Complex issues requiring thoughtful analysis of probabilistic tradeoffs and consequences are replaced with simplistic models that would have left the intellectuals of yesteryear aghast. Where complicated continuums are warranted, binary scales are substituted in which anything besides absolute purity is considered evil. False analogies, poor pattern recognition, hasty conclusions, misjudging the whole by a part, ascribing false motives and meanings have become the artisan bread and butter of the pontificating patricians. Double standards abound in which moving goalposts of unethical or even criminal behavior are applied to capture political opponents, while flexible extenders are granted to liberate supporters.”

When I asked her for specifics, I only got general talking points — he’s a racist, uses women (like Stormy Daniels), and completely mishandled the pandemic. No logical arguments.

      But then I remembered this — ideas put in place by emotions are not removed by logic. The crew at MSNBC & all the rest tapped into this emotional process and now control it. CNNs rating have tanked so this particularly lucrative storyline (Trump’s ongoing evil and the need to aggressively prosecute) will not be disappearing soon. Whatever charges need to be brought, will be and the cash-flow cow will be fed.

      • MaryV February 17, 2021 at 12:20 pm #

        I’m positive now that Trump was controlled opposition. He served many purposes.

        1) allowed the plandemic hoax to overtake the country
        2) TDS-addled Liberals are now crazy, OCD emotionally destroyed and dangerous messes
        3) kept people pacified and inactive through his Q anon psyops (they’re still waiting on ‘the plan’)
        4) continued the illusion that both sides aren’t the same and that both parties are, ultimately, just good cop bad cop shit show for the masses

        Among other things

    Being born in the USA and having a valid USA passport no longer allows you entry into the USA? Correct! You now must prove a negative Corona test. Then you can enter — and quarantine for 14 days. All this does not apply if you are a foreign born citizen, holding a foreign passport and fully infected with Corona while entering the USA via the southern border. (2022 can’t come fast enough.)

      Won’t matter until someone forces one vote per person and can verify such.
      With electronic voter fraud machines running at full scam mode the next election cycle no one but Democrats will get even one vote!
      They already managed to pass that off in entire Democrat strongholds the Republicans failed to get even one vote!

      • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 5:30 pm #

        Or…: “They already managed to pass that off in entire Republican strongholds the Republicans failed to get even one vote!” Just as in 2016, at the last minute (or maybe hours after) rural republican strongholds decided to go all in for Hillary. I watched that unfold in real time in 2016 and in 2020 – PA, OH, MI WI, “oh fuck yeah, we really want Hillary – regardless of what our earlier, urban vote totals might suggest.” Trust but verify? No. Just verify.

        • benr February 16, 2021 at 7:37 am #

          Indeed VERIFY and then double verify.

          While we are verifying also prosecute voter fraud to the highest allowed punishment.
          Lots of public shaming and lots of public service to cover those huge fines.

      “I give them 2 weeks before a bill comes up restricting travel for those who supported trump, based upon online comments.”

      This is one of many numerous arm-waving predictions since Nov 3 – and I fully expect this one won’t come true either. If it does not, it might be time to reconsider this strategy.

      Levels of paranoia are very high, about the end of the world as we know it … but a Biden-Democratic administration isn’t THAT different to a Trump-Republican one – the bureaucracy makes fairly sure of that, and the desire to get re-elected takes care of a lot too. relax a little.

    JHK,

    I’ve been a fan of your blog and the commenters for a VERY long time. Today, I finally registered so I could provide comment:

    Your prose are creative, enjoyed, informative, and honest….. Until today.

    When you say, “The conclusion of the conference call went like this:” the ‘like’ part lacks enough explanation of the level of sarcasm you implied. For those that read you twice a week it’s obvious that you were using literary license to exaggerate the actual conversation. OK. Fun to read. Just add better caveats [such as, ‘what was implied without being said…’] when you go that far off the end of reality next time. Or maybe include the official transcript prior to your hilarious transliteration.

    Your audience is not purely static. There are those – new to your particular skill – that could easily presume that exchange was exactly as you portrayed.

      Oh well. For some reason, I’m thinking about Gerald Ford’s remarks on the occasion of the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976. Lofty stuff of course. But listening to it now just makes me sad. It makes so palpable the omelette failure of the United states over the past fifty years or so. Damn.
      The United States is a chimera democracy right now. I’m amazed that no other ambitious state hasn’t’ pulled some kind of stunt already.

      Snopes is supposed to be fact checking the media. But in their fact check, they used Media non-coverage as their argument that it wasn’t real. Circular logic.

      “Your audience is not purely static. There are those – new to your particular skill – that could easily presume that exchange was exactly as you portrayed.”

      And there are plenty of anti-Biden regulars on here who took it literally as well, and have in fact run with it in today’s thread. And if you do a search, there are gaggles of outer-planet websites that are repeating it as if it is gospel.

      People will believe anything if it fits their world view and prejudices … critical thinking and scepticism are casualties of war.

          What medication are you abusing?

          I have never mentioned any of these things … I am basically a centrist, and remain deeply sceptical that the presidential election was rigged and then stolen.

          To claim theft without being able to prove it (without even getting to first base on proving it) is nothing but a sore loser rampage by Trump (and not incidentally, a way of sucking tens of millions more out of the rubes – yet again).

          But otherwise – your list is totally irrelevant – and quite dated.

          • Night Owl February 17, 2021 at 6:47 am #

            You claimed all of those as Cargill.

            The claim of theft was not allowed to be proven. The evidence has not been shown in a court of law.

            So your nutbar conspiracies are “dated”; powerful argumentation.

            LOL.

          • Tekapo February 18, 2021 at 2:25 am #

            I had to look up “Cargill” and found this:

            “Environmental campaign organization Mighty Earth announced today that it had named Minnesota-based Cargill as the “Worst Company in the World” due to its unscrupulous business practices, environmental destruction, and repeated insistence on standing in the way of global progress on sustainability.”

            Very attractive on its face.

            I looked up “Shareblue” and found this:

            The American Independent, formerly known as Blue Nation Review or Shareblue Media, is an American liberal news website owned by the journalist and political activist David Brock. The American Independent is within a consortium of political groups in Democratic strategist David Brock’s network.

          There have been a few technical issues in NRW at some of the stations over the past few months, but nothing particularly strange.

          Germany gets energy from a variety of sources (quite a bit from coal still) and usually has a massive surplus at the end of each year that gets sent abroad.

          There are windfarms here, but they have been scrutinized heavily in the past few years and there was some talk of starting to dismantle them in some parts of the country.

    Someone mentioned “vaccine nationalism”, implying I was being less than patriotic for being interested in the Russian vaccine. Can someone define this term? I lost interest once I looked at it. Instead of being saline solution, it’s some kind of more indirect way to get the mRNA’s altered via DNA. Not a vaccine. Seemed very similar to the Astra-Zenica concoction.

    Hopefully soon we’ll have an entire palette of gene altering shots to choose from. Doctors will recommend different ones, like they used to prescribe cigarette brands. Objective science of course – not based on any kind kickbacks.

      “gene altering shots” marks you as a stupid troll.

      The vaccines from mRNA are modified Corona Virus genes. [aka GMOs]

      They do not alter your genes, dumb ass.

      • Redneck Liberal February 15, 2021 at 1:58 pm #

        As observed last thread, JC Penny, ‘those who believe the mRNA vaccine will alter their DNA should view it as an opportunity.’

          1,170 deaths reported from the vaccine. Obviously there must be far more that have been unreported.

          • JohnAZ February 15, 2021 at 3:19 pm #

      • Yohannon February 15, 2021 at 2:08 pm #

        The virus has never been isolated, so they don’t have the exact genome. So it’s based on a computer program. I assume the program is at least in part based on previous attempts to produce a corona vaccine – attempts the lead to mass casualty events in both animals and people.

          The CDC has some data if you can get to it. It also has several hundred pages of “we believe” because they have yet to prove it.

          These posts by the CDC turn into utterances from the Grand Mufti (Fauci) as facts, not suppositions.

          • tresho February 15, 2021 at 3:41 pm #

            From a presentation by Richard Feynman: “Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.

            When someone says, “Science teaches such and such,” he is using the word incorrectly. Science doesn’t teach anything; experience teaches it. If they say to you, “Science has shown such and such,” you might ask, “How does science show it? How did the scientists find out? How? What? Where?”

            It should not be “science has shown” but “this experiment, this effect, has shown.” And you have as much right as anyone else, upon hearing about the experiments–but be patient and listen to all the evidence–to judge whether a sensible conclusion has been arrived at.” — The Physics Teacher Vol. 7, issue 6, 1969, pp. 313-320

      “Someone mentioned “vaccine nationalism”, implying I was being less than patriotic for being interested in the Russian vaccine. ”

      Er, no. ‘Vaccine nationalism’ was suggested as describing the way Russia put nationalism (getting a vaccine out before any other country) before completing phase 3 trials and ensuring the safety of its vaccine.

      Your patriotism was not impugned, just your consistency.

      Apparently trials involving a mix and match of Sputnik and Astra Zenica are ongoing, which is heartening on more than one level. I quite like the idea of a détente shot.

    Todd Herman: Texas windmills frozen. Helicopters spraying them with petroleum based anti-freeze.

    The Panhandle gets a lot of snow sometimes. I’ve always loved extreme weathers. I read a book as a boy that showed a picture of young man who had frozen to death walking home from his girlfriend’s house – less then two miles. His frozen body was propped up against a wire fence. No hat. No gloves. Light or medium jacket, not a coat. A tough guy who underestimated what he was up against. But in a blizzard like that, anybody could have gotten lost and died – no matter how well dressed they were.

      I would think that the most effective wind areas are where the low pressure systems, storms, come through and blast anything in their way. Winter storms freeze hem up? That covers about 3/4 of the country. The windmills need copious lubrication, what happens when the viscosity gets too high? Or maybe that is what is freezing them up.

      It bothers me to see the real life limitations of these renewable systems, both solar and wind. That is because we need them to offset the decline in oil in a few decades. Here is the rub!

      We have to make a real decision whether these systems are going to work within ten years. If they won’t, then nuclear plants need to be erected PDQ. Maybe France can teach the dumbos in DC how to do it.

      • tresho February 15, 2021 at 3:24 pm #

        “whether these systems are going to work” Back in 1977 some of the gas line supplies to Ohio froze up and stopped delivering downstream during the worst cold weather since the gas pipeline system had been deployed decades before. At some homes condensation inside their outdoor gas meters froze solid and gummed up the works. I hope that possibility has been somehow obviated.

        I was really interested to find out how good batteries are now. I simply had no idea. Can you give me a cost comparison per mile between one of these five hundred mile charges and regular gasoline – all other things being roughly equal as to the size, type, and make of the car?

      “The calls for “unity” are a dodge. Unity requires broad consensual reality, not cynically-constructed pseudo-realities designed to cancel any notion of the common good, a common culture, or the public interest.”

      It would seem that “broad consensual reality” is a bridge too far in a hyper-partisan political and cultural environment. The common good, a common culture, or the public interest … not sure they exist either, in any really practicable way.

      There are very rich people, some that live comfortably enough, then working families that just get by, and a whole lot of poor who have not and never will have productive or prosperous lives.

      It’s a question of class conflict, and competing interests, with a lot of race-base tribalism in the mix … not a lot of commonality it seems to me.

      And while I think calling appeals to “unity” a dodge is going a bit far – they are meaningless in the context of America today, and the problems it faces. At least Donald Trump didn’t ever even pretend to call for unity.

      The Biden Administration needs to get on with a sensible agenda to address critical issues while they have the numbers … I agree that it’s a waste of effort to call for “unity” – just get on with it.

      And if they are opening the border with Mexico, and it has resulted in the entry of thousands in an unregulated and un-monitored way … then that is nuts. Not the way to solve a humanitarian crisis.

      • rube-i-con February 15, 2021 at 4:56 pm #

    DeSantis in Florida seems to have some grasp of the issues and needs of the people he governs. He knows he lives in America (not East Germany circa 1950) and people in his state want to leave when they want to, have visitors when they want to, send their kids to school and not have their lives micromanaged by the very people whose salaries they’re paying.

    “The fact that more and more of our politicians know so little about the lives of their voters ensures that their resolutions do less and less to address the issues that they were written to put right. ”

    Bracken scans the new US Navy policy:

    Takeaways:
    1. Any white and/or male officer will never dare to criticize any minority subordinate. It will be automatic career death. Competent white men are going to flee the officer corps and NCO ranks in droves. Reading this document makes it clear that there is no future for white male officers and NCOs, unless, maybe, they announce they are transitioning to women, have strongly progressive Leftist views, etc.
    2. Any minority enlisted or junior officers (including gay, trans, whatever) will be empowered to say “fuck you, you racist asshole!” to any white superior, and refuse any order, and the white superior will have to undergo a Maoist struggle session with ample sincere self-criticism to keep their stripes, bars or oak leaves, or they will face charges, or at least be forced out of the military with “other than honorable.”
    3. Totally incompetent morons will be placed in leadership and command roles from SGTs to Generals, no matter what. If planes and ships crash, [McCain and Fitzgerald were just warnings of what is to come] then it will be a small price to pay for inclusion and diversity.
    4. Serving senior and flag rank officers who sign off on this identity-politics-driven Marxist insanity only care about finishing their careers and grabbing their pensions, and they don’t give one small damn about their units being utterly annihilated in a future war.

    This is actually WORSE than what the Soviets did to their military. They only tried to control the economic part of human nature. They never denied male-female roles, or the need for the most competent (high scoring) Russians to be placed in leadership roles. They never said, “There are not enough trans Eskimos or gay Chechens flying our jets, fix it now, no matter what, if they can fly or not!”

    Still awaiting a response from our esteemed host on the question so many in CFN want to know. Will he get the vaxy?

    • Blackbird February 15, 2021 at 8:05 pm #

      Good question Tom,

      One thing I have always appreciated about Mr. K’s writing, is that he asks us think of the future and to try to imagine how it might play out. (Well that’s how I interpret it.) To answer that you have to dig deep, and the deeper you dig, the more roots you uncover – and the harder it is to answer that question!

      My prediction? (I know everybody is waiting!!) No, Mr. K. will not get the “Vax”. Why? The Gates patent (060606) links physical activity to blockchain payment. Who could object to that? Well, anybody that values “freedom” over “security”? Sounds like JHK to me.

      What else? Well many (if not most) of the Covid “vaccines” are not “vaccines”, but “software” engineered to link your body with external stimuli. External stimuli? What’s wrong with that? Nothing!! It’s what we need!! Stay home alone, safe!, away from friends and relatives, make money turning them in! Your chip will attest to your conformity – no undesirable contacts, no questionable time-outs. The Gates Foundation patent to link physical activity with blockchain payments? Well of course it’s the most reasonable thing you would want to do. Thank you Big Bill for protecting us!

      Post-“vaccine”: an increase in auto-immune disorders (already dramatically increased since Fauci’s assumption of the top post at NIAID in 1984) – a natural occurrence once the natural processes have been short-circuited. Decrease in fertility (Gates predicted 10% to 15% decrease – come on Bill, don’t be so coy!) especially since syncytin-1 (essential for placental formation) is so close in structure to the “corona spike proteins” that it might be an effective decoy. Doesn’t take much to crash a population climb. I’m guessing closer to 50% infertility in the first generation to get the shots, 100% thereafter. Billy Boy wants to live in his Fruitopia, not just plan it for others. Check out his record in India and Africa.

      Remember, It’s not just the “Vaccine” it’s a whole new “way of life” (Reset (TM)).

      For the vaccinated: allergic to everything (a result of software implanted into your body that makes your body produce coronavirus proteins to trigger an immune response (look it up) to attack those proteins, sterile (woo hoo!!) – will your body discriminate between evil corona virus and helpful , wild mood swings (fork you! you’re the crazy one!), autoimmune disorders (your body destroying your village to keep you safe), yeah, who wouldn’t sign up for that?

      So, the question boils down to: Is Mr. K that stupid? My answer: I don’t think so. I expect that he is mortgage- and debt free since he has been preaching this message for decades, that frees him of a large degree of leverage that most of us will feel – and fall prey to.

      Why would JHK want to fly? I’m sure he’s seen the world from 38,000 feet and thought, ‘”Greenland” what a scam!’ I’m sure he understands that certain human activities have had their place in time. I assume most commenters here understand that too. I think JHK long ago resigned himself to a low tech future that the rest of us are being dragged kicking and screaming into. I suspect that in the near future Mr. K’s brow will be furrowed more by the inscrutability of broody hens than the intricacies of stock market trades.

        And that’s the better case scenario. Here’s the bad news from Denninger.

        The West’s Obituary*
        [Comments enabled]

        Right now the Chinese are furiously working in their biolabs, as are a whole host of other nefarious nations, such as North Korea and likely Iran.

        What are they working on?

        Threlkeld added, Williams also had been vaccinated for COVID about a month ago and that testing found the two types of antibodies in his system – one type of antibody that results from a natural COVID infection, and a second type of antibody from the vaccine. Threlkeld also said Williams tested negative for COVID-19 while in the hospital.

        From The Hunt For Red October:

        YOU ARROGANT ASS YOU KILLED US!

        Coronaviruses are notorious for ADE reactions, where antibody presence potentiates the infection instead of protecting against it. Using that as a bioweapon is stupid because you will score “own goals” on your own people and there is no way to control that. As a result biological weapons generally are dumb; poison gas and such don’t have this risk since it does not propagate but any disease does.

        The poster child for ADE in coronaviruses was an attempted vaccine for a feline coronavirus that often made cats very sick. The vaccine killed every one of them in the test when they were later exposed, wildly potentiating the infection.

        Read that again folks: NOT ONE VACCINATED CAT SURVIVED A CHALLENGE WITH THE ACTUAL VIRUS.

        Ordinary vaccines we have lots of experience with, such as measles, the flu shot, mumps and similar do not carry a risk beyond that of natural infection and cannot be weaponized because they produce the exact same antibody response as a natural infection. If you have had either the measles or the shot you will have antibodies but an antibody test will not tell you which since they’re not distinguishable.

        I suspected from the start that due to the way these mRNA shots work — they are not actually a vaccine at all in that they do not “mimic” natural infection but rather cause your cells to produce the spike protein that the virus has and that elicits an immune response — that the antibodies produced by those jabs would be distinct and distinguishable from natural infection.

        All of the so-called “experts” who worked to develop these and the firms involved knew damn well this was the case when they started developing them — and did it anyway.

        Now we have hard, scientific confirmation of that and it’s very bad.

        In fact it’s potentially nation-ending bad.

        An adversary that develops a virus (e.g. another modified/mutated bat virus, for example) that selectively targets ADE in people with the specific antibodies from vaccination, which are distinct from natural infection, could easily kill every single person who was vaccinated and not harm or only make mildly sick those who either had Covid-19 naturally or who were uninfected and unvaccinated.

        The nightmare scenario that has always driven bioweapons research is the push to discover some genetically distinct means of targeting a bioweapon such that it only kills your adversary and leaves everyone else alone. It’s even worse for your adversary if your side gets and transmits it but doesn’t get sick. This has never been found despite diligent effort in the past; all attempts to find such a distinct vulnerability have failed, showing reactivity across the board and thus strongly suggesting that if that “thing” was completed and got out it would kill indiscriminately. That you cannot stop a virus from circulating (even isolated islands eventually got hit by the 1918 pandemic flu!) means that releasing a virus or bacteria that nobody on “your” side has been sensitized to yet doesn’t help because when (not if) the sensitizing agent gets into your population all your people die too.

        This has now, for the first time in human history, been changed by the idiotic actions of our governments and pharmaceutical companies in that we are now tagging people for death by the literal millions and they will die if an adversary is able to develop a virus that targets those specific antibodies.

        Of course, said adversary will not deploy the tagging via said shots in their population and thus their people will not be attacked and killed. Since it takes an actual jab of a needle to be sensitized absent intentional action there is no risk to the adversary’s population or troops.

        I give the odds of an adversary (remember, we’re talking nations here with nearly unlimited resources and plenty of smart people) figuring out how to selectively target Covid-19 vaccination antibodies at 50% or better within the next five years.

        If they succeed every single person who took one of the vaccines that produces a distinguishable antibody titer dies.

        You can bet your last nickel they’re working on it right now.

        What happens if they succeed and we forcibly vaccinated our children and anyone who wishes to have a “normal” life back? The entire procreation-capable stock of people in the United States will die and so will America.

        That risk is wildly beyond the boundaries of sanity to have ever been accepted and it was deliberately concealed from the people — not just here, but throughout the Western World.

        It’s clearly not enough for certain ghouls to have destroyed a full year of most school-age children’s education; now they propose to risk literally extinguishing all of their lives and thus the future generations they would be able to create down the road.

        I pray I’m wrong.

        Unfortunately I know that I’m not — there are plenty of people, both terrorists and evil nation-states that would love to unleash something like this on those they hate, they will work on this problem and if they discover a way to exploit it they will do so.

        The use of any “vaccine” that does not produce an identical antibody to natural infection must be halted immediately and never done again. We cannot do anything for the people already stabbed but we can eliminate the incentive to develop such a weapon by not having any material percentage of the productive and young population able to be targeted.

        The option to cancel the risk of self-destruction of our nation and many others will expire within weeks.

        Yoho: Messi linked to this and a number of people mentioned it, but Bizarrely none of them bothered to mention the military aspect. As Capitalists and “individualists” (such people tend to be all the same), they only thought about their own health or the health of other individuals. The social and national aspects? Meh.

        Denninger is postulating a strike from a foreign power. I think it’s more likely to be just another Globalist attack, again in concert with the Chinese. Gates has told us utter horror is coming. He will fulfill his promise.

        Staretz Silouan: Your brother is your life.

        Marty, a legally blind seeker I once knew had been to many ashrams in India. He said the real Saints were always very, very distinct as individuals. Eccentric even. The Spirit had fruited them, fulfilled the promise of their individuality even as they transcended it. Did not Christ say, He who lays down his life will save it. But he who tries to save his life shall lose it.

        “Remember, It’s not just the “Vaccine” it’s a whole new “way of life” (Reset (TM)).”

        Leaving aside my mild bewilderment that anyone would feel remotely entitled to anyone else’s medical history (including vaccinations) merely because they could not contain their urge to know, you might like to remind yourself, since you are so au fait with Mr K’s views on everything, of what he actually said about ‘the Reset (TM)’.

          “Leaving aside my mild bewilderment that anyone would feel remotely entitled to anyone else’s medical history (including vaccinations) merely because they could not contain their urge to know…”

          Alba,
          Well, back in the stone age, and in a Galaxy far far away, the government used to have a stake in the maintenance of public health…sort of an almost-altruistic bent. Inoculation for diseases was not only a good idea, but required…and an inoculation record was maintained and kept to be shown upon request.

          I was a military brat, and, before being sent overseas, many such “outrages” occurred…half a dozen or so, by needle…no one complained…for the common good, and as a maintenance of US Government “property”.

          It is difficult in these times, however, to accept the offered premise.

          • GreenAlba February 16, 2021 at 1:09 pm #

            I’m not arguing with that, EF, I merely found people’s interest in Mr K’s vaccination status a bit surprising.

            Fine, if he wished to share it, obviously. I have no interest in the matter whatsoever.

        • Blackbird February 16, 2021 at 12:37 pm #

          Not sure I understand your bewilderment. Did you catch me digging through the file drawer at Mr. K’s doctor’s office? I was simply attempting to answer tom clark’s question regarding whether our host would get the vaccine. I’ve read Mr. K’s views on the “Great Reset” and his predictions for the new year. Some I think he’s right on target, some not – guess we’ll have to wait and see.

          I’ve also just started reading Covid-19: The Great Reset by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret – I suspect that the head of the WEF might be a good source of information on what the Masters of the Universe are up to. I would not discount the ability of the super-rich and super-powerful to re-engineer the world in their favor. A review of the past hundred years or so, shows them to be rather proficient in this area.

    Worldwide poverty is increasing for the first time in 20 years. The U.N. (certainly not an anti-Woke org) estimates 235 million are at risk of dying because of starvation in just a few months.

    The 8 White Identities, by Barnor Hesse. African-American Studies Prof at Northwestern University:

    1.White Supremacist

    Clearly marked white society that preserves, names, and values white superiority

    2. White Voyeurism

    Wouldn’t challenge a white supremacist; desires non-whiteness because it’s interesting, pleasurable; seeks to control the consumption and appropriation of non-whiteness; fascination with culture (e.g. consuming Black culture without the burden of racism against Black people)

    3. White Privilege

    May critique supremacy, but a deep investment in questions of fairness/equality under the normalization of whiteness and the white rule; sworn goal of “diversity”

    4. White Benefit

    Sympathetic to a set of issues but only privately;won’t speak/act in solidarity publicly because benefitting through whiteness in public

    5. White Confessional

    Some exposure of whiteness takes place, but as a way of being accountable to POC after; seek validation from POC

    6. White Critical

    Take on board critiques of whiteness and invest in exposing/marking the white regime; refuses to be complicit with the regime; whiteness speaking back to whiteness

    7. White Traitor

    Actively refuses complicity; names what’s going on; intention is to subvert white authority and tell the truth at whatever cost; need them to dismantle institutions

    8. White Abolitionist

    Changing institutions,dismantling whiteness,and not allowing whiteness to reassert itself.

    —————–

    Where are you on the White scale of sin? Everyone, of course, should aspire to 7 or 8. Lola Isobel says that most Whites stop at 5, and dammit, that’s just not good enough! Prove to your Black superiors that you’ll up your game. The correct people are watching you.

You like Tacos, Mexicans like Tacos. Etc. So? So you and yours won’t survive, not as Whites at least. So why talk about “Russia” and if there are no Russians left? You think the Tartars, Turks, Chechens, and assorted Mongolian types will keep this culture alive? Or our Blacks and Browns will keep ours alive? C’mon.

            The future belongs to those who value themselves in a collective sense. And until you at least understand intellectually what I am saying, history will remain a closed book to you. Because this is how people used to think. This is why we’re here: Because our ancestors loved themselves.

            The big immigration to Israel did NOT occur during Nazi rule, just the opposite. There was practically no immigration to Israel at that time. Initially Israel boycotted the Nazi regime, but then partially reversed this stand in an effort to save Jews in Europe. Obviously this was a futile effort, given the absolute viciousness of German antisemitism, and complete double dealing treachery of the Nazis. Yes, there were many Jews that served with heroic distinction in the German army, particularly during WWI. These Jews thought they were serving the Enlightenment, liberal culture and values, and their country. It turns out they really served Vatican degenerates, vicious German barbarism, and a country and a people that considered them subhuman.

            As for Russia, I have ZERO sympathy for Empires, They are an anathema to the human spirit and human dignity and to God. They should be opposed wherever and however they exist.

            Definitely a blend, created by the movement of people out of what is now Mongolia and toward the west, absorbing or removing other ethnic groups along the way. The many Turkic tribes differed greatly in religious persuasion and physical characteristics, recognizable as Turks primarily through related languages.

    Unity? Oh, there’s unity alright; it’s just that well over half the country isn’t included. And maybe that’s what the grifting sniffer-in-chief is getting at.

    I used to regard Orwell’s 1984 as fiction, but now seems more like a documentary.

    In the novel, the citizens of Airstrip One (the UK, I believe), were unified by the daily Two Minutes Hate, where Party members screamed at telescreens displaying the Party’s most-hated-enemy propaganda.

    In comparison to our present media circus and its 24-hour, fact-free, hate fest, a mere two minutes would be quaintly restrained.

    Orwell’s dystopia was much more sensible and economical than ours: express the required rage once a day for a short period over a single target and then get back to doing other useless and imiserating things for the rest of the day, whereas today’s Party requires near-continuous seething.

    Apparently, there’s a business model in there that Orwell never contemplated.

    • AKlein February 16, 2021 at 6:33 am #

      Nice touch, KappaJoe, with your suspicion of a “business model” playing a big role in “the plan”! I believe Orwell would have appreciated your addition of ubiquitous “financialization” to the dystopian landscape.

  48. Pucker February 15, 2021 at 7:16 pm #

    They may be faking the vaccine clinical trial data?

    The Zeitgeist now is that everything is fake. I read that the Pfizer “vaccine” isn’t really a “Vaccine”, and that they call it a “vaccine” to gain legal exemption from legal liability. Good Lord!

    “ Finally, in the latest setback for the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, South Korea has decided not to use the AstraZeneca vaccine on people 65 and older until researchers can confirm the vaccine’s effectiveness on patients in the age group, continuing a trend that began in Europe, when Germany, followed shortly thereafter by France, declined to approve the vaccine in people 65+ without further study embarrassing the UK after its government became first in the world to approve the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine.”

    • Yohannon February 15, 2021 at 11:23 pm #

      Of course it’s OK for every Woke virtue signaller to shout a reflexive “raciss!” whenever challenged. But calling someone “Woke” doesn’t have the same consequences for those so labelled.

    Neurodoc, back me up on this.

    All the baloney I have read from various folks is incredible.

    The immune system is a lot smarter than some of these statements.

    The immune system is alerted by the presence of an antigen, something that is not self. It reacts over a few days, creating antibodies, creating killer T cells, being controlled by helper cells CD4s.

    The scientists have been telling us that we need antibodies to fight the disease. The vaccines are going to give us those antibodies to protect us.

    BS!

    The vaccine fires up the Bcells, that generate antibodies, it also fires up Killer T cells, the immediate reaction to the vaccine’s spike protein production is to fire up an immune response in your arm and the area around it. Lots of Killer Ts and Bcell generation and antibodies to kill those harmless spike proteins. And they do. The CD4s coordinate the fight, why?, because over reaction of the immune system will kill you, which is the primary cause of direct death by Covid.

    So the immune cells are fighting away and they eat all the proteins. Time to stop. Those same CD4s start to shut things down. Over the next few months, the antibodies are destroyed, the Killer Ts die off, the inflammation dies away. End of story, right?

    Wrong. During the fight another type of Bcell and Tcell is created that are memory cells. They float around and if they detect the antigen again, clobber it immediately, the Bcells immediately grow up, explode and become anti body’s, and stimulate other B cells to do the same. Same with the Killer Ts.

    BTW, the Killer Ts are really nasty little suckers. Their cytoplasms are loaded with toxins that kill antigens and our own cells too. They, along with the antibodies can damage our own cells as much as the bad guys. Again, this is the reaction that kills in Covid, overreaction because the virus invasion is so fast. There primary function, normally, is to kill viruses where they attack self cells containing viruses. They also are the primary defense against cancer cells. When a cell mutates into cancer, the immune system reacts and the Killer Ts kill the cancer cells.

    Again, BTW, The control cells CD 4s, are the primary target of the HIV virus. AIDS was the total collapse of the control function of the immune system.

    Ann,
    Thanks to you I am prepared for 18 below zero temps with rolling blackouts, which are coming tonight. When you suggested we get sleeping bags, I immediately bought one from Mountain Hardware. Never thought I’d need it, as I don’t go camping. But I got it anyway. Now I am ready for cold nights all this week.
    Barbara
    P.S. Also got my Ivomec; just waiting on the syringes
    Okay, guys. this is Ann talking now.

    YES, get SLEEPING BAGS. I have peeps in Kansas telling me of “Incomprehensible lack of power” areas: SHIT. “We’ll be utilizing wood and sleeping bags. WHAT THE ****????”
    Friends: GET THESE ARCTIC SLEEPING BAGS.
    Pro tip: you crawl into these bad-boy sleeping bags as close to naked as you can. Big Agnes is a very good brand.
    Yup. I did it on Mt. Elbert just before I bugged out. Just to know. If you “bundle up”, you’ll be begging for pneumonia. Let body heat DO BODY HEAT. Let the bag wick the wet nasty sweat away. If you wear jammies, you’re soaked, and then you’re done. Sleep almost naked. Buy a bag for every individual, and then you sleep in minimal cotton underwear.

    Is it true that India has banned the Pfizer jab?

    I think that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was kicked out of India several years ago for giving out free vaccines that paralyzed about half a million people?

    The Pfizer jab not a “vaccine”. A vaccine triggers an immune response from the body to produce antibodies that attack and stop the virus from invading the body. The Pfizer mRNA “gene therapy” only minimizes the symptoms of the virus so that the subject can presumably still get the virus and pass it on to grandma. Also, we have no idea what the mRNA does? Some people say that it changes the subject’s DNA. It’s totally untested. Insane….

    • JohnAZ February 16, 2021 at 12:07 am #

      Uh, wrong. It is a vaccine. It uses self cells to produce spike proteins, not viruses. The immune system reacts to the proteins to produce a mild immune response to produce memory B and T cells. The mRNA goes into self cells and tells the cell to produce the spike proteins. Now read my above to get the whole story and quit believing the BS. DNA is not involved with the first two vaccines. It is with the J&J.

      • Pucker February 16, 2021 at 12:18 am #

        But doesn’t this mean that it will provoke a response not to the Covid 19 virus per se, but to the spike proteins which are used by other organisms needed by the body? It’s not producing an immunological defense to the Covid 19 virus but rather to certain spike proteins used by the Covid 19 virus to enter the cells, which are needed by other “good” to enter the cells?

        Also, when another benign virus comes along (or multiple benign virus), it could trigger the body to attack itself?

        • Pucker February 16, 2021 at 12:33 am #

          Presumably, the organs of the human body and the human blood cells have those ubiquitous receptors used by the Covid 19 virus to latch on to for important reasons other than as convenient extensive pathways for Covid 19 to enter the cells?

          • Pucker February 16, 2021 at 12:50 am #

            “I’ve got some good news and some bad news.”

            “The good news is that it stops the Covid 19 from entering Grandma’s cells. The bad news is that it may block other good stuff that Grandma needs from entering her cells and organs. The other bad news is that it won’t block Covid 19 from entering Grandma if the T cells of the Covid 19 mutate slightly. And since it’s likely a bio weapon it mutates like a muthafucka.”

          • JohnAZ February 16, 2021 at 9:17 am #

            ACE, angiotensin converting enzyme, is generated by the kidneys and used for blood pressure control. It is present on the cell membranes of many different cell types in the body. When the spike protein of Covid evolved to attack this receptor, it allowed many different organs to be affected.

            For example, ACE receptors are found in arterioles in the blood stream that help control blood pressure. When the virus attacks the walls of these vessels, red skin and more importantly blood clots can generate.

            The widespread use of the ACE receptor explains a big difference between Covid and the flu. The flu attaches to receptors in many times fewer places in the body, mostly in the respiratory system. Covid can attack in many more places, triggering a much more intense immune reaction. It also damages many more organs.

            A really scary question that the “scientists” have not answered is whether the crud crosses the blood brain barrier and attacks the brain and central nervous system. Some studies indicate yes.

        • JohnAZ February 16, 2021 at 9:05 am #

          Uh, sorta.

          The genetic core of the virus generates the Spike proteins that are specific to Covid original. Mutations to the RNA cause changes to the protein, this is the source of the variants.

          The spike proteins enable the virus to attach to ACE receptors, think of a lock-in a gate, The ACE receptors open the gate and the virus enters, turning the nucleus of the cell to turn into a virus making machine, thousands of them. What probably makes Covid so fast is the replication rate of this process.

          When the control CD4 cells detect the antigen, they trigger and control the inflammatory response. Unless the replication rate outruns the reaction. Then the body goes nuts trying to catch up, and that is what separates Covid from the flu.

          Because this is all sensitive to the molecular makeup of the antigen, the spike protein must be in place to trigger the reaction by the immune system. Benign and other viruses do not carry the Covid 19 spike so they will not trigger reaction. However, if their proteins have been detected before in another attack, and memory cells exist, the body will react to them

          The immune system is a marvel. From the point of initial attack, detection of foreign vs. self, attack and retreat once the “bug” is defeated, it is a marvel of defense. If you picture the world as a cloud of ubiquitous microbes, each complex organism is a void in that cloud that is made possible by immune systems killing the crud in the cloud.

          Once in a while, the memory programming goes bad, and the body loses the identity of self to judge the goodness of antigens. It starts to attack its own cells, autoimmunity response. The cause of this is very little understood.

      • Yohannon February 16, 2021 at 1:11 am #

        Beautiful lady doctor takes an epidemiological approach: she finds no excess death in general, though she admits some countries had big spikes in death – the “harvesting phenomena” where people who are ready to die do so enmass for some reason. Conclusion: mass hysteria, with that and the lockdown actually behind some of the spikes, including too much use of hydrochloriquine. Mass over doses like seen with the Influenza plague of the early 1900’s with other drugs.

          Y

          The virus operates at the cellular level. That means that variations at the DNA level can change the responses to the crud. IOW, it is all genetic. That means that local immunity profiles could make big differences in the mortality rate.

          The blood type A susceptibility is an example.

          Another is that kids below puberty in age, have thymus glands that allow supercharged immune responses that make them asymptomatic. When the thymus atrophied, the susceptibility increases.

          Weakening immune systems in the aged increase susceptibility.

          If the damned CDC would just get out there and identify these susceptible populations instead of playing politics, progress would be made. As it is with the Deep State firmly in place, it will never happen.

        TBH, life is not far removed for the average resident in the average developing country.

        When I was in Nepal, we took a normal civilian bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The bus had a suspension so shot I nearly threw up multiple times (and I never throw up), and any time we were stopped the entire bus filled up with exhaust. To boot, the seats designed for two persons were filled with 4-5, depending on if children were present.

        The entire thing stunk like horse piss, and we nearly went off a cliff into a ravine in the Himalayan foothills. When we exited the bus, I aw a woman grilling mystery meat directly behind the exhaust of our bus (literally 2 feet away) next to an open sewer. A broken, dangling power line crackled audibly around the corner.

            The distinction was made between a bus that the locals would use for such an excursion vs. a tourist bus with a toilet, AC, etc. The latter are not particularly nice in Nepal, but the “regular” buses are incredibly dangerous.

            An off-the-beaten-path trip to Nepal will change anyone’s mind about whether we have it good in the West or not. I can also warn you in advance that hiking to Annapurna with no guide is quite risky. Ask me how I know.

            At the end of our journey they demanded we empty our wallets/purses, and they checked our gear for dough before calling a friend to bring us back to Pokhara.

            At one point, I thought we might not be coming back. And I am not exaggerating.

    “While a barrel’s worth of oil weighs just over 300 lbs, and can be stored in a $40 tank, to store the equivalent amount of energy in the kind of batteries used in EVs require several tons of batteries that would cost several hundred thousand dollars. Even if engineers were able to double or quadruple battery efficacy, that would still not come near to closing the performance gap between energy from wind and energy from liquid hydrocarbons for transportation and electric power production.

    “These stark facts often elicit the response that their Green technologies will get better with time and scale. Of course they will. But there are no significant scale benefits left, since all underlying materials (concrete, steel, fiberglass, silicon, and corn) are already in mass production. Nor are there big gains possible in the underlying technologies given the physics we know today.” — the New Atlantic

            “I hope that clears up the small difference between maga and leftists”

            The power outages in Texas (in winter) and California (in summer) have very little to do with the use of renewables.

            The fault lies in the energy market – the only goal is to sell electricity at the lowest profitable price, however that means that robustness and preventative maintenance are neglected – let alone any “winterizing”.

            Renewable account for about 10% of the power supply in Texas in winter, and the outages resulted from failure of FF power generators in the conditions. The loss of suck power was 5-6 times greater than the loss from wind turbines.

            And wind turbines work just fine in cold countries (Canada, Norway, and Russia are examples) – however Texas energy companies and regulators have decided that such extreme cold doesn’t happen often enough to justify the cost of “winterizing”.

            Unfortunately – but obviously – it is during times of extreme weather (hot and cold) that power supply is most critical, and as result of the outages, people have died.

            There will be a lot of hand-wringing, finger-pointing, political grandstanding, and blame-gaming – let alone reviews, inquiries, and the like – but there is no mystery as to what happened.

    Hey top headline everybody.. like THE most important news story today..

    breaking news!

    “NEW: The white woman arrested last spring for calling 911 during a dispute with a Black man in New York’s Central Park had her criminal case dismissed after completing a counseling program meant to educate her on the harm of her actions.”

    yes..

    the US is a fucking absurd country..

      the US, from my experience living there, is very conservative except for the big cities

      however, the looney leftists with inflated self-worth gravitate to politics and inflict their idiocy on the rest of the country

        Think about it.

        Where do the illegals congregate? Cities

        Where are the cartel gangs and drug pushers congregate? Cities.

        Where are all the stupidified millennials going? Cities

        No wonder they are Leftist Wokesters.

        The CW2 will last one week. Truckers stop city deliveries, the shelves empty, the blues sue for peace. They are totally dependent on the red part of this country and had better start realizing it in their arrogance.

          JohnAZ,

          It could easily go the other way. Federal firepower takes over the rural communities by force with relative ease and subverts them into service.

          Some rural folks will fight, but most just want calm to live their lives the way they want to. Take away that option and you’ll lose a majority of them to “going with the flow”. At least after making an example of one (or twenty) around the country.

          • JohnAZ February 16, 2021 at 3:53 pm #

            They can’t. If they attack the rural areas, the cities starve, including Washington, DC. Also, rural means having to hold off thousands of places, control six cities and the game is over.

            Economic breakdown hits the cities first, it did in 1929 and it will today.

            If you want to see how fast it might resolve, look at Feb. 6, the sound of Deep State feet running away would be deafening.

            Remember that this is really a battle of this really bad government against the people. The people always prevail eventually.

            If we were in France in 1790, there would be sounds of construction in La Place de la Concorde setting up the guillotine and the government elite would be running like heck.

          “The CW2 will last one week. Truckers stop city deliveries, the shelves empty, the blues sue for peace.”

          Are we sure that all truckers (or even a majority) are Red Rebels? They could be Blue Moonies, or at least not overly passionate either way.

          I think the most problematic thing about a “civil war” is finding who would be on each side, since it would not simply be state v state.

          • Tekapo February 19, 2021 at 5:23 am #

            I see there is no answer to this reality – truckers aren’t MAGA-philes – as much as the rightwing nutjobs would like to think they are. Truckers are mostly genuine working class, and vote Dem.

        “however, the looney leftists with inflated self-worth gravitate to politics and inflict their idiocy on the rest of the country”

        Isn’t that democracy … the dude who gets the most votes win? It’s not based on area of land (although the Electoral College sort of is) – it’s based on population.

        I recall a Republican ruing his party’s loss in Wisconsin, “Apart from Milwaukee and Madison, we won the state.” But it doesn’t work like that – you have to get a majority of the people on side.

        His implication that one solid farmer vote in a rural county was “worth more” than the votes of the teeming masses in the cities. I don’t think he’s the only person who thinks along those lines.

        • JohnAZ February 16, 2021 at 3:56 pm #

          Many of the city dwellers do not have a clue what America is all about, that is why the cities taking control does not stand well with the rural areas. America is not about drug infested, ganged up, criminal, violent, illegal infested cities.

    Dear Jesus,

    Please let Change.org start putting a comments section on their funding/petition requests.

    They just emailed me and told me that some guy thinks Tom Brady’s apparel company should give back the PPP loan they took out last year to cover payroll, etc (like most every other small business did, or attempted to). Some guy’s reason: Brady personally has plenty of money and therefore should be held to a different standard.

    Now, take that however you want, I agree he has plenty to cover his losses…but…this is what these people have to occupy their time??

    Would love to be able to see the nation be able to comment on this wanker and his all-important “big idea” to change the world for the better.

    Instead, I guess I’ll just do it here. That guy can eat a bag.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder February 16, 2021 at 12:33 pm #

      Update: Apparently there is a comments section. You just have to sign the petition in order to voice your “reason for signing”/annoyance. Some have done so just to say how stupid it is. I shall digress.

    In a way its almost like everything is a hoax or hoaxy at best. A lot of ranchers in Texas (who vote conservative btw) actually had wind turbines built on their land for income purposes. Wind energy has been really pushed in Texas because of the vast open spaces available for the turbines and the wind potential that exists out there. And they build all of these wind turbines even if you point out that these wind farms are avian killing fields and aesthetic wastelands and you weep and throw yourself to the ground in protest. Not to mention that the constant droning sounds of the turbines are also an ecological nuisance. And then the whole thing about the “Capitol Riot” is just too far out there and the media clearly knows they our outdone. Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Muriel Bowser are entirely responsible because they knew there were people planning trouble and they refused to secure the Capitol because they wanted an “insurrection” so they could politically destroy DJT and ideally arrest him. LOL the universe laughed at them.

    Washington Examiner:

    A Massachusetts climate official said people who heat their homes and fuel their cars will need to have their “will” broken in order to combat emissions and climate change.

    “I know one thing that we found in our analysis is that 60% of our emissions come from … residential heating and passenger vehicles,” said David Ismay, Massachusetts, undersecretary for climate change, during a virtual meeting with the Vermont Climate Council. “Let me say that again: 60% of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person on your street, the senior on fixed-income. Right now, there is no bad guy left, at least in Massachusetts, to point the finger at and turn the screws on and now break their will, so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will.”

    Ismay reasoned that climate agencies were running out of options.

    “We can’t have no offshore wind, no transmission, no solar, and have clean energy,” he said. “Something has to give. There has to be some mechanism we trust to find a place to site a transmission line.”

    But Ismay also admitted his remarks would not be popular.

    “I can’t even say that publicly,” Ismay said.

    That prediction seemingly came to fruition when the state’s Republican Gov. Charlie Baker got wind of the statements, which he insisted “no one who works in our administration should ever say or think.”

    “First of all, no one who works in our administration should ever say or think anything like that,” Baker said. “Secondly, Secretary Theoharides is going to have a conversation with him about that. And third, one of the main reasons we didn’t sign the climate bill when it got to our desk was because we were specifically concerned about the impact it was going to have on people’s ability to pay for many of the pieces that were in it, which means it also doesn’t represent administration policy or position.”

    The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance also weighed in on the clip, calling it “frightening” that someone with as much power as Ismay was calling for such proposals.

    “It’s frightening to think an official so high up in the Baker administration is bragging to an out-of-state group about the economic pain he wants to inflict on the very people who he’s supposed to work for,” Paul Craney, a spokesman MFA, told Commonwealth Magazine. “Remarks like this have no place in state government. Ismay should be dismissed from his position in state government, as he’s clearly demonstrated he does not have the best interests of the residents of Massachusetts at heart.”

    Yoho: I’m reminded of the BLM guying saying, That’s the way to make them take a knee!, after Kenosha had been burned and sacked. The Elite are at war against their own people, hellbent on reducing them to peasantry.

    • BackRowHeckler February 16, 2021 at 1:24 pm #

      Well, the road to 0 Emissions by 2035 will not be smooth. Who said it would be? Of course when you’re building utopia there are going to be casualties along the way, maybe many casualties. But think of the Brave New Green Energy World that awaits! No, these Bay State peasants need to be crushed like Kulaks in Ukraine were crushed by Bolshevik Tru Believers in 1933.

        I have an electric heat pump that heats and provides a/c, so I won’t be on any hit list. Of course, that’s not counting the ff’s needed to produce the electricity, but the Massachusetts green dummies aren’t thinking of that. You know, our complex once thought about installing a windmill on our property because we have enough land, but after a little research we abandoned the idea.

        The secretary should be fired. If I was Charlie Baker, I would.

          Bill, I was reading an article about ‘Millionaires Row’ in Cleveland, the street where Victorian mansions were built from back when Cleveland, Ohio was an industrial powerhouse. John D Rockefeller had a house on Millionaire’s Row. Apparently, one of the millionaires– I forget his name — built a windmill generator in his backyard c1880, thus being the first private dwelling in America with electric lights.

          They had a picture of the windmill, which looked like something from an HG Wells Scifi novel. So the technology existed at least 140 years ago.

          Not 15 miles east of here the Pope factory made electric cars from 1895 to about 1920. President Teddy Roosevelt had one, which he kept at his sister’s house, still standing right around the corner from my place. Roosevelt would drive it around town when he showed up here each summer. I think the range was about 150 miles per charge on the thing. For all I know it’s still sitting back there in the barn. I should go look.

    The Chinese vaccine is a traditional type and thus the one to get. The graph equates the Astra-Zenica and the Russian, Sputnik, as I surmised as both “viral vectors”.

    Thus Denninger’s fears are on target. We may be being set up for a knockout punch. A new corona virus can be released targeting our designer antibodies. It won’t hurt the Chinese or their allies since they won’t have these antibodies, but only their own natural ones.

    But if they haven’t isolated the virus, how could their vaccine work? Maybe it doesn’t. Maybe it’s just a placebo or a vitamin shot.

  74. Yohannon February 16, 2021 at 2:19 pm #

    Communists do not fight for personal military power (they must in no circumstances do that, and let no one ever again follow the example of Chang Kuo-tao), but they must fight for military power for the Party, for military power for the people. As a national war of resistance is going on, we must also fight for military power for the nation. Where there is naivete on the question of military power, nothing whatsoever can be achieved. It is very difficult for the labouring people, who have been deceived and intimidated by the reactionary ruling classes for thousands of years, to awaken to the importance of having guns in their own hands. Now that Japanese imperialist oppression and the nation-wide resistance to it have pushed our labouring people into the arena of war, Communists should prove themselves the most politically conscious leaders in this war. Every Communist must grasp the truth, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party. Yet, having guns, we can create Party organizations, as witness the powerful Party organizations which the Eighth Route Army has created in northern China. We can also create cadres, create schools, create culture, create mass movements. Everything in Yenan has been created by having guns. All things grow out of the barrel of a gun. According to the Marxist theory of the state, the army is the chief component of state power. Whoever wants to seize and retain state power must have a strong army. Some people ridicule us as advocates of the “omnipotence of war”. Yes, we are advocates of the omnipotence of revolutionary war; that is good, not bad, it is Marxist. The guns of the Russian Communist Party created socialism. We shall create a democratic republic. Experience in the class struggle in the era of imperialism teaches us that it is only by the power of the gun that the working class and the labouring masses can defeat the armed bourgeoisie and landlords; in this sense we may say that only with guns can the whole world be transformed. We are advocates of the abolition of war, we do not want war; but war can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.

    —?Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung, Vol. II, pp. 224-225

    “All things grow out of the barrel of a gun”, indeed Chairman, indeed. Now you get it! So why are they trying to take our guns away from us?

    Again yes! We are Men of Peace. But to be a Man of Peace means to be a Man O’ War first. Once all are conquered, one has made a dessert and can eat safely and peacefully under one’s own fig tree.

    And those who beat their rifles into ploughshares (have you read the quarterly?) shall do the plowing for thems that don’t.

    • SoftStarLight February 16, 2021 at 5:01 pm #

      Yes that makes sense. There must be war to prevent war. Like taking medicine for a cold or something sort of like that. But I noticed something again that is of alarm. “We shall create a democratic republic.” Well, don’t we (the U.S.) call our form of government a democratic republic? I suppose in an ideal setting where factors are accounted for that such a form of government could be very workable for a society. But, it seems like this form of government has been a tyrannical form of government or devolved to such in places where it is tried. Though I did read somewhere that China is actually more free than the US in an overall sense. So it seems like we are being directed down the Marxist path or we are actually on it as has been discussed before. So more evidence of it I guess. What is that quarterly you are referring to? That saying sounds familiar though.

      • Yohannon February 16, 2021 at 7:09 pm #

        Yes, Jefferson said the Tree of Liberty needs to be watered. Mao said a revolution every twenty years ago – as a vaccine. A little prevents a lot.

        Oh, Ploughshares is some old Lefty thing. A thin (starving) joke. And I don’t really want a Revolution every twenty years, but we obviously let things go far too long.

        God save us from such “Democratic Republics” as Communist China. One Confucian scholar once said, China has been outwardly Confucian (humane) but inwardly and really always “Legalist” (a political philosophy of extreme pragmatism and brutality). Mao fits into the latter very well. What he says makes sense and sounds good, but he and it were all wrong nonetheless. The “sounding and looking good” is the Confucian exterior.

        • Yohannon February 16, 2021 at 7:10 pm #

    • BackRowHeckler February 16, 2021 at 8:08 pm #

      I’ve been reading up on Mao’s blood soaked Cultural Revolution c1966-1976. There are some real similarities between events in China in that era and what’s happening in the USA today. The nihilistic impulse to destroy all that is traditional, decent and good are the same. Another similarity, at least in cities like Minneapolis, Seattle and Portland is political authority siding with and backing anti world thugs as they terrorize ordinary citizens and destroy monuments, statues and public art. For example, when Red Guard activists destroyed Confucius’ grave, police stood down and allowed it to happen. We’ve seen the same thing on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Va., and many other places.

      The big difference is in China Red Guard campaigns lead to the liquidation of tens of million of Chinese citizens in aktions that rivalked even the suppression of the Kulaks in Ukraine in brutality. I have no doubt lefties would like to do the same to us, but they don’t have the means or the balls to pull it off. There are too many of us, and we are too well armed. Yes, they can block a street and stop a car and drag a mother and young daughter out and terrorize them, as happened in Petersburg, Va last summer. But coming into our towns and dragging us from our houses like the Red Guard did in China to enemies of the revolution, it ain’t going to happen. That’s where the comparison of Woke American pissants and Chinese Red Guard ends.
