So Now a Federal Agency Says Lab Leak Most Likely Cause of COVID. Duh!!!

So it’s official.  But unless you’re seriously mentally deficient or part of the coverup who is still saying it was just a natural occurrence?  No one.

But those two categories still contain millions of Americans.  And other than those two categories who still doesn’t realize that we paid the Chinese to produce this very thing by “gain of function” manipulation of bat corona viruses?

Our government had COVID  built in a substandard biological containment facility.  It got loose and they lied about its origin for years.  And yet we elected Joe “Mask Up” Biden and let him lock us down for another full year.  It’s a sad state of affairs.

Best Title of the Month – Approximately Zero

That’s the title of this article in City Journal.  It’s about a report that came out on a study done by the Cochrane Collaboration which is described thus:

“The gold standard for medical evidence is the randomized clinical trial, and the gold standard for analyzing this evidence is Cochrane (formerly the Cochrane Collaboration), the world’s largest and most respected organization for evaluating health interventions. Funded by the National Institutes of Health and other nations’ health agencies, it’s an international network of reviewers, based in London, that has partnerships with the WHO and Wikipedia. Medical journals have hailed it for being “the best single resource for methodologic research” and for being “recognized worldwide as the highest standard in evidence-based healthcare.””

And here comes the result:

“We now have the most authoritative estimate of the value provided by wearing masks during the pandemic: approximately zero. The most rigorous and extensive review of the scientific literature concludes that neither surgical masks nor N95 masks have been shown to make a difference in reducing the spread of Covid-19 and other respiratory illnesses.”

But now the bad news:

“This verdict ought to be the death knell for mask mandates, but that would require the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the rest of the public-health establishment to forsake “the science”—and unfortunately, these leaders and their acolytes in the media seem as determined as ever to ignore actual science. Before the pandemic, clinical trials repeatedly showed little or no benefit from wearing masks in preventing the spread of respiratory illnesses like flu and colds. That was why, in their pre-2020 plans for dealing with a viral pandemic, the World Health Organization, the CDC, and other national public-health agencies did not recommend masking the public. But once Covid-19 arrived, magical thinking prevailed. Officials ignored the previous findings and plans, instead touting crude and easily debunked studies purporting to show that masks worked.”

So there you go.  None of this is news.  But now we see that “science” is just a magical incantation the Left uses to get their followers to raise their banner and start marching.  Maybe it’ll be good for starting fights with crazy relatives at holidays.

NYS Supreme Court Reinstates All Unvaccinated State Employees With Backpay

How sweet is this?  Should be a hell of a season for lawsuits.  This should be just the start.  Shouldn’t be long before all the other states join in and then the military gets into the act and after that the wrongful death suits over vaccine side-effects will be moving along quite nicely.

And just news of this should inject renewed anger into the mid-terms just in time for the New York and Michigan races to let people get some payback for the sadistic lockdowns those two states’ governors perpetrated.

Cuomo’s gone but his henchwoman Hochul is running and of course the evil stepmother of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer is in a dead heat with the Republican challenger.  Well it couldn’t happen to a nicer pair of witches this Halloween.

Howie Carr Gloats at Impotent Rage of Boston Maskers

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.

Hat Tip To the Conservative Treehouse, The Airlines Are Ending the Mask Mandate

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.

California Wants to Legislate an Inquisition For Doctors Who Commit Heresy

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.


Even San Franciscans Love Their Kids More Than They Want to Virtue Signal

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.

Guest Contributor – SubVet – COVID Coverup

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.

Pissed Off Canadians

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.
