02MAY2020 – OCF Update

Apologies for the silence on the site today.  I fell ehind on some urgent chores and had to do some catching up.  Things will be returning to normal momentarily.  One unfortunate circumstance has become apparent.  Unless you are an especial fan of the weeping cherry tree the “Photo of the Day” in the merry, merry month of May may have a few too many photos of this flowerful tree.  I seem to have gone a bit overboard.  My apologies.

Here’s a quick photo for the update.  It’s a photo stack and I learned that shiny things can cause issues for stacking software.  Look closely at the edge of the watch and you’ll see some digital schmutze that happens when things get too right.

Anyway, I*’ll get busy trying to be incisive, mordant, relevant, scathing, ironic and droll.

President Trump Fires Michael Atkinson the Intelligence Community Inspector General

Atkinson was the stooge who changed the whistle-blower regulation to allow hearsay evidence that was used to fabricate the Ukraine impeachment case.  It really is amazing it took this long to fire the guy.  He should have been fired the day after the Senate exonerated the President.  This guy is a creature of the Obama regime and should never have had a job in this administration.  Good riddance.

I just want to let the President know if he needs someone to take the job, even though I have no legal or law enforcement experience I am available at a moments notice, although I will have to work remotely from home. Just leave a comment on this post Mr. President.

Finally found a new plugin that does polls.  Doesn’t allow write-in stuff (so far as I know) so if your choice is somewhere else you’ll have to add a comment.

Guest Contributor – War Pig – Coronavirus and Sedition

Trump is right, yet again. The left, including their slaves the media, are overstating the Coronavirus danger for political gain and to depress the stock market and drop the economy.

Since the beginning the Coronavirus has, according to the WHO and CDC, accounted for some 75 thousand illnesses and 2 thousand deaths. However, the regular influenza, the seasonal flu we vaccinate against every year, has from October 1st through the end of February, caused some 26 MILLION illnesses, a quarter of a million hospitalizations and over 14 THOUSAND deaths in the UNITED STATES ALONE.

Nobody is panicking over the seasonal flu. The selloff of stocks is caused by a manufactured panic NOT BASED IN FACT that the leftist media and politicians have contrived to weaken the Trump economy. Nobody is going bonkers over flu prevention and contagion. Coronavirus so far has about a 5% mortality rate, and that is in China where medical care and sanitation is not up to US or European standards. They are still selling raw monkey and other wild meats in Chinese open markets with no refrigeration, despite commie government orders to the contrary.

The Left Coast, with its masses of homeless defecating and urinating and vomiting and dying in the streets – may have cause for concern to some degree. They have set up a perfect breeding ground for disease and epidemic. I would not put it past the leftist governments to do a Stalin and let the epidemic take hold to kill off the excess homeless population for them. It’s what socialists/communists do. Population control through disease and starvation.

I also believe the left and their pimps in the media are manufacturing fear where there should be none, just to ding the Trump economy in an election year. Screw the economy, ruin it for political gain! Sedition and treason. Turn something which so far has been far less dangerous than a regular US flu season into a panic. Coronavirus mortality rate in China, which does not have the healthcare of the USA, is about 5-6%. US normal flu mortality rate is about 5%, depending on how it is counted, once an American is bad enough to be hospitalized. The vast majority of influenza cases in the US do not require hospitalization.

Why would the supposed “truth seekers” in the mainstream media lie like thieves? Because they are thieves, liars, seditionists, dastards, bastards and pluperfect scoundrels. They are reaping political gain and economic gain over fear mongering. In alliance with the DNC they are spreading false reports of a monstrous pandemic equal to the Spanish flu of the early 20th century. Nothing from the CDC or even the UN-controlled WHO have shown so far that this is the case. So the left and their taint-licking media pimps are flat out lying.

Should we keep an eye on the situation? Of course, and the CDC is doing that as I write. There are a lot of smart folks at the CDC and they have seen it all. Do we need to run around screaming Doom? Hell, no. I just wonder why Fox news is letting the leftist media get away with this without challenge. The CDC and WHO information took me a grand total of fifteen minutes on a fast cable internet connection to find. Surely Fox can do better.

So, yet again, Trump is right and the left is caught lying, although nobody at Fox will point at the emperor of the left and say he has no clothes.

Why? Is Fox going lefty since being bought by Disney?

I remember when the whole thing about W Bush’s military service was an outrage with “documents” to prove it. I took one look at them on the internet and pronounced them to be fakes on the (back then) debate boards I prowled. I know what classified documents and military orders look like and these were all wrong. They looked like someone who had read some spy stories had cobbled them together. Dan Rather doubled down on them and it cost him his career.

This panic over Coronavirus is likewise a manufactured hoax. So why aren’t more people than me yelling about it? Why aren’t careers in jeopardy over it?

How does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?

Luke 2:1-20 King James Version (KJV)

1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Climate Catastrophe and Firefly

Today I watched that clip of teenage Swedish drama queen Greta Thunberg harnessing some kind of climate panic attack to call us out on the evil we’re doing to the planet.  Now considering that she rode a jet to get to the UN climate conference it’s a little thick having to listen to her harangue us because we heat our houses and drive to work to be able to feed our children.  But she is a sixteen-year-old girl and they tend to be pretty crazy at that age.  Anyway, I’m watching the rant and it seems like I recognize her from somewhere.  And then it hits me, Greta Thunberg is actually River Tam from Firefly!  And now it all makes perfect sense.  If you were a fan of the show you know that River was the victim of clandestine brain surgery by the Alliance, in the quest to turn her into a four foot eleven, eighty-seven-pound, mind reading, super soldier.  Of course, she’s crazy.  That kind of diabolical amygdala scraping will leave the victim incapable of distinguishing climate hoax form reality.

At this point all the craziness started making sense.  In the Firefly universe Earth’s ecosystem collapsed.  River has been recaptured by the Alliance and reprogrammed to parrot the climate change speeches her tormentors have fed her poor battered mind.  The fiends!  No matter, I could detect that even while she spoke a vein throbbing over her eye was actually spelling out a message in Morse code.  It spelled out the message, “It’s not anthropogenic global warming, it’s really only solar output fluctuation.”  She misspelled anthropogenic and she also added, “Jayne’s a girl’s name.” But that was just reflex.  So brave, so brave.

So, there you have it.  Her handlers (or parents if you don’t mind the charade) trot her out to enflame the demented climate mob.  But how can she be rescued from this awful enslavement.  Can Simon Tam call on the Resistance (not that Resistance) to smuggle him into the Alliance prison and once again break her out?  Or can Mal, Zoe and Jayne use their skills as Space Pirates to swoop down and scoop her up in the cargo hold of Serenity?

But what then?  How can the diabolical brainwashing be cured?  She must be close to total insanity.  I mean she believes the world will end in ten years.  So sad, so sad.

But then a pop-up ad for hair restoration services opened up and I got distracted so I don’t have the answers I need to solve this conundrum.  I’ll have to re-watch my blue ray copies of Firefly and Serenity to try to figure out the best path forward.  I only pray we’re not too late to save her.

Of course, she was the most annoying character on the show and I agreed with Jayne that she should be handed back to the Alliance.  Hmmm.

Anyway, that film clip was hands down the dopiest emotional display of unalloyed teenage stupidity to come down the pike since that imbecilic kid David Hogg road his bicycle to the Parkland shooting.  She really deserves to be mocked for the ridiculous hyperbole she spouts.  At the very least her parents should be brought up on child abuse charges for allowing her to be used as a trained seal by the climate scammers.

Finally, Whedon is a tool for killing off Wash.  That was totally wrong.
