In the ZMan’s Monday post at Taki’s Magazine he gives a pretty fair appraisal of COVID. I know everyone is sick of thinking about it but it’s important to put everything in perspective so we can figure a way to punish the cretins who did all this to us. Good read.
Howie Carr is one of a very few sane New England journalists. He loves tweaking the Left in Boston. I just had to quote from an article he posted mocking the anger and fear expressed by commenters on the Boston Globe over the judge ending air travel masking.
“I’ve had two vaccines, and two boosters, and have already booked my fifth, sixth and seventh shots. Whenever I step outside my mansion in Lincoln, which I haven’t done since February 2020, I wear 17 masks, all N95’s, but now I am terrified that I will be infected by a MAGA supporter in the tourist section of my next flight to Martha’s Vineyard. P.S. When will Trump be tried as a war criminal?”
Now obviously he’s exaggerating what he read in the Globe comments section. But based on what I know of these people it’s pretty close to reality.
Kudos to Howie.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Fantastic news. Enough is enough. Kudos to that judge for making this happen just as the CDC decided to extend the mandate again. I can imagine the anger and even rage as the flying Karens are forced to sit next to normal people with naked faces.
I’ll tell you, this is great news for me. I’m flying in July and wearing a mask would have been an enormous pain in the butt. Well, let’s hope this is the final nail in the coffin for the COVID-nazis. And may we get the chance to show them our thanks in November.
It’s so wonderful.
Here’s a professor of epidemiology at Stanford University, School of Medicine warning about a California bill to yank the medical licenses of doctors who don’t think children should be vaxxed against a virus that they almost assuredly won’t suffer ill effects from. Even if the vaccine has been linked to serious and even deadly side effects in the young.
“According to California Assembly Bill 2098, physicians who deviate from an authorized set of beliefs would do so at risk to their medical license. The bill, written by Assemblyman Evan Low, a Democrat in Silicon Valley, and currently making its way through the California Legislature, is motivated by the idea that practicing doctors are spreading “misinformation” about the risks of Covid, its treatment, and the Covid vaccine. It declares that physicians and surgeons who “disseminate or promote misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines” shall be subject to “disciplinary action,” which could result in the loss of the doctor’s medical license.
The language of the bill itself is intentionally vague about what constitutes “misinformation,” which makes it even more damaging. Doctors, fearing loss of their livelihoods, will need to hew closely to the government line on Covid science and policy, even if that line does not track the scientific evidence. After all, until recently, top government science bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci claimed that the idea that Covid came from a Wuhan laboratory was a conspiracy theory, rather than a valid hypothesis that should be open to discussion. The government’s track record on discerning Covid truths is poor.”
Despite my pity for the innocent inhabitants of California I think this bill is a good thing. The more dysfunctional places like California and New York become the more aware the rest of the country becomes of how dangerous their delusions are. And I believe people in a democracy deserve to get exactly what they voted for. In California that means getting all the Democrat lunacy anyone could imagine. I would be alright with the court handing down sentences for erring doctors that might include tar and feathering and, if necessary, burning at the stake.
After all the good people of California reiterated their love for Gavin Nuisance at the conclusion of his recall election. He’s their man. Give them all they can get.
San Franciscans, the gold standard of woke bleeding hearts, even they can reach their limit. Even they got tired of their kids missing school and wearing masks. They recalled three school board members including the School Board President who refused to end the COVID nonsense.
Even the dopes in the bought and sold media are waking up to the fact that there are tens of millions of pissed off parents who want some payback:
“San Francisco’s recall has drawn widespread attention amid a year in which 25 recall efforts have been launched against 66 officials nationwide, according to tracking by Ballotpedia.
“School boards are where the rubber meets the road when it comes to Americans meeting their government,” ABC News Political Director Rick Klein said of the recall. “Schools, for better or worse, are the battlefront. They’re where the major issues of 2022 are colliding for so many Americans.””
I think we’re going to see Red State parents clean house in their schools. Between COVID and the lefty propaganda being fed to their kids, their eyes have been opened and they’re going to want to replace people who aren’t listening. Even in the blue states and cities, parents react to threats against their children. Even terminally stupid progressives still have that reflex.
OCF. I’ve watched Dr. Malone’s and Dr. McCullough’s interviews with Joe Rogan and found both of them very convincing and, despite both of them having gotten the jab, it made me regret getting it. I’ve looked at the VAER’s data (which I knew about from back in the late 90’s after having a severe reaction to a Tetanus shot of all things) and the data isn’t looking good for the jabs. I’ve been digging more and more into this and I think it’s high time for me to start posting/blogging about this on OCF. You might have seen some of the testimony at Sen. Ron Johnson’s rountable with McCullough and Military human rights attorney Thomas Renz. There is a major cover up going on with DoD data. The press love Military whistleblowers like that hack Lt.Col. Vindman as long as they can use these hacks to attempt to destroy President Trump but, when high ranking Military officers come forward to expose what is happening with DoD data on Covid, suddenly they aren’t interested. Give me a covid corner on OCF and your traffic hits will explode. Guaranteed.
Over at Larry Correia’s site there was a post on the Trucker’s Protest on the Windsor Bridge crossing. Anyway in the comments a Canadian calling himself “The Phantom” had some very interesting comments about the popularity of the protest with the regular Canadians:
“Second, I live almost 2 hours from Toronto and 6 hours from Ottawa, out in the sticks down by Lake Erie. It is farm country, there’s nothing going on around here. Cows and snowbanks right now. So, the fun part is that every time I leave the house to go to the store or what have you, there are Freedom Convoy signs and Canadian flags on random pickup trucks. People have been lining up hay bales in their fields next to the road and painting them with slogans. Idle tractors sitting in driveways have a Canadian flag tied to a hockey stick flying on them. There was a big John Deere parked at the Tim Horton’s in Cayuga on Hwy 3 the other day with a Freedom Convoy sign and a flag.
It’s not just the truckers now. The government has been pissing off the Normies for two years now, and the dam finally broke. Present situation today is that roughly everything you see on Canadian media is a lie, and the crowds of protesters are the regular Jane and Joe Canadian who are tired of lockdowns, masks and vaccine mandates. They’ve had it, and they’re starting to look at how they want to piss off the government today.”
Maybe the Canadians will make some changes in their government.
I watched Robert Malone’s interview with Tucker Carlson. Toward the end of the video Malone discusses the toxicity of the spike protein and how its effect in an injected form such as the vaccine can have extreme consequences. And then he mentions the Department of Defense’s (DoD) adverse effects data on the vaccines and mentioned that frequencies of adverse effects like cancer and myocarditis have shown, in some cases, a ten-fold increase. Now, the DoD is claiming that somehow the previous years’ data is somehow at fault and actually the tenfold increase is really the normal baseline. Malone indicates in his discussion that this is most probably a lie. Watching this has further increased my fears for the younger members of my family who have been vaccinated. For older folks such as myself the impact of the mRNA technology on my physiology is troubling but since I don’t expect to live another sixty or seventy years (thankfully) I am not as at risk as adolescents and young adults. For them this is truly frightening news. And the idea that they will continue to get “boosters” sounds like insanity.
The problem that the Biden administration will continue to shield the FDA and the vaccine manufacturers from the public learning of the safety problems with these vaccines is maddening. The FDA’s primary function is to protect the public from dangerous medicines. The true facts of the safety record of these vaccines must be revealed to allow Americans to gage whether their government is protecting them or not. I remember last year several of the most senior FDA officials who oversaw vaccine testing resigned. There was a reason for that. When the Senate and House revert to Republican control, they must investigate these things. If it’s as bad as it sounds, they will need to impeach Biden and his cronies and then force the FDA and the Justice Department to prosecute anyone who knew about these safety problems.
I realize that all this sounds like a lunatic conspiracy theory. I’ve worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over two decades and I know that adverse effects are stringently recorded and analyzed for any new drug before allowing it to be used by the public. If side effects have been observed for these drugs in any where near the frequency and severity that Malone indicates, these vaccines need to be banned for use by young people and maybe everyone else too. There are treatments for COVID that can reduce the risk of serious illness even for the old and seriously ill. Forcing the population to take a dangerous medicine that has very limited efficacy is criminally negligent.
If it turns out that people knew these things for months or even a year then jail time should be the minimum punishment. I could imagine that the death penalty would be a reasonable sentence for someone who unleashed a potentially fatal vaccine on hundreds of millions of people.
How the hell did we ever get to this place? When the American people can no longer believe its own government on something as fundamental as drug safety and the Media is complicit with that government in hiding the truth from us it quickly starts to sound like we’ve reached the levels of dishonesty and just plain evil that existed in the Soviet Union and its satellites. I won’t be surprised when Biden and Harris flee the country in a while. The question is where can they hide if this turns out as badly as it seems to be.
The day after posting “Dementia Joe Gets a Hat Trick” and “The Biden Presidency is Officially Failed” I think it behooves me to at least switch the club to my left hand, if for no other reason at least for the sake of symmetrical blood spatter patterns. I haven’t seen any fresh evidence that Biden is still moving or even breathing so I’ll switch gears today and look for life affirming stuff.
Seriously, the Democrats are retreating from COVID so fast that soon they will claim it never happened. I especially like those compilation videos that have Fauci and the rest of the mandate crowd contradicting their every pronouncement over and over. We have to be able to display all this when the time comes. What will be especially important is when the safety data on these vaccines finally get aired. From what I’ve heard from Robert Malone, it’s horrendously bad. The mRNA in these drugs have even been implicated in creating cancers.
What needs to be done is not just win the midterms. What needs to be pushed is just how many wrong policies the Democrats have pushed in the last few years and the amount of damage these policies have caused. Vaccine mandates, mask mandates, defund the police, sponsor and protect BLM riots, CRT, import millions of illegal aliens and transport them around the country, degrade the military, weaponize the Justice Department, turn the FBI into the Stasi. It goes on and on. The elections from now on have to be about delegitimizing the Democrat Party and rolling back their entire agenda.
It’s a sunny, almost balmy day here in Dunwich. I plan to get out and take some photos of the retreating snow and ice in the brilliant light. I’m sure to find something to complain about eventually but right now I want to get some air.
I’m finally reading the next Galaxy’s Edge installment “Legacies.” I’ve fallen a few books behind because I waited for Legacies to come out in paperback but it never did. Eventually I gave up and bought a hardcover copy at a good price. Turned out to be an autographed copy! The following episodes are available in paperback so I’ll catch up up soon enough.
Enjoy the morning.
A crack here and a crack there and pretty soon the whole rotten wall is about to fall.
When the Atlantic has an article entitled “Open Everything: End Covid Mandates Now” on the same day that the Spectator has “Are Dems Finally Waking Up–or Are They Just Scared?” then even an idiot knows the jig is up. But COVID true believers aren’t regular idiots they are zealots. They are gonna howl and spit and throw a fit.
Any day now Dementia Joe is going to discover that the pandemic is over and the great pivot will occur. Suddenly he’ll be responsible for freeing the COVID slaves. Never mind that he fought tooth and claw to institute vax mandates and passports. He will be our savior. He’ll probably declare a day of Thanksgiving, “Thank Heaven for Dopey Joe” Day. Parades will wind between the barbed wire walls of DC and bureaucrats will line the streets (still wearing their masks by the way) and cheering the conquering hero standing tall in his Depends.
The question is will it be enough to get the country to forgive the Dems for ripping a couple of years out of our lives and especially the lives of our children and grandchildren? I’m guessing not. The midterms are very close and masked or unmasked, America still “looks like Yucca Flats after the blast.” Empty store shelves food and fuel at double the price of a year ago. The surveillance state investigating our every move. No, I don’t think the people will be in the mood to forgive and forget.
But Joe will give us one of his stuttering stem-winders that goes on for an hour about how great he is and how lucky we are to have him around. Probably they’ll start another round of arm-twisting Manchin and Sinema into supporting Build Back Better and kill the filibuster and the Steal Elections Bill. They’re not very original but they are persistent.
So, the Democrats can learn. It only takes six months of ghastly poll numbers for them to completely reverse “the science.” They’ll replace the old lies with new lies and turn on a dime. Fine, I guess if they’re also willing to unleash petroleum drilling and allow us to have reasonably priced fuel then the economy would revive. But that’s a bridge too far. They really believe in the Green Economy. It probably would be a leap of faith to believe that battery cars and solar panels are the cause of all their problems.
Good. That blind spot is perfectly positioned to lose them the mid-terms and with any luck well beyond that. But for today I’ll just enjoy the fact that the COVID madness is finally being called off. The stupidity and dishonesty have been maddening but even the Democrats finally recognized that they were holding back the ocean with a butterfly net. I’ll start making my plans for summer. I’ve been invited to go up to Yellowstone. It’s a bit of a stretch but I can only imagine the great photos I’ll take, unless I get eaten by a grizzly on day one. Well, that would be exciting!
Enjoy the day.
