Trump let us down? Huh?
Well, what happened to that foot to foot-and-a-half stack of original FBI documents that John Solomon assured us would be declassed within 2-3 days? That was last week. The Senate interviews are little more than light comedy--the internal documents are what we want.
And then there's the pardons. I would be personally disappointed if Julian Assange were not pardoned. There are those who claim that Trump will back off from this pardon lest he PO the senators who will/may be conducting a show trial of Trump.
Please, Mr. President--just pull the trigger on both these measures. We need to get to the bottom of the Russia Hoax and the definitive deconstruction of the American Republic.
Sundance sums it up. Apparently--if we're to believe the WaPo--the FBI's remarkable information gathering strategy has paid dividends, in the minds of its analysts:
Can you imagine being on the receiving end of that tip line? One way or another, according to the Bezos Post, the FBI has received super secret "intelligence" that a vast horde of QAnoners, disguised as National Guardsmen, will storm DC--thus, presumably, the extraordinary military preparations. Really. According to the FBI--and we have this right from the top, from Chris Wray--Antifa is an ideology but NOT an organization and thus can't be touched because First Amendment and so forth, whereas QAnon IS an organization.
As I say, sundance captures this perfectly:
According to the Washington Post, the FBI has shared super-secret, non-specific, possible-threat assessments to include militant Qanon supporters posing as National Guard during the inauguration of JoeBama. Abject silliness has now turned to the structurally absurd. Of course the evidence is anonymous and denied in the middle of the article… but still, pushed by WaPo.
The good news in this 'abject silliness' is this. I doubt that most Trump voters have even heard of QAnon, much less have any clue what it's supposed to be about. The Establishment association of QAnon with the installation of a new post constitutional Biden Inc. regime amid all the attendant Junta Chic street theater we're witnessing will certainly only further discredit our Ruling Class in the eyes of an already distrustful public that sees all too clearly the collusion of Big Tech and Big Government.
I'm not even going to get into this story:
Clinton and Pelosi suggest Trump may have been on phone with Putin during Capitol siege
Nancy Pelosi called pro-Trump rioters ‘Putin puppets’ and the Capitol siege a ‘gift’ to the Russian president
except to point out that it's totally of a piece with the QAnon BS and that the Ruling Class clearly believes that no cynically produced and repeated conspiracy theory is a bridge too far when it comes to fooling all of the people all of the time. Or enough of the people enough of the time.
Meanwhile Bluto Barr, disgraced former AG, thinks election fraud is BS.
Finally, Covid Forever! And Ever! Vaxxing, masking, and obsessive-compulsive hand washing as a way of life. The New Abnormal.
So, yesterday, via LifeSite, we learn what Jonathan Van Tam--deputy chief UK medical officer--envisions for the future. A whole new way of life and a change in "mentality." Yes, Van Tam envisions the public choosing to descend into Covid induced mass paranoia based on government guidelines:
the public “will choose” to incorporate behaviors like social distancing and wearing a face mask into their day-to-day lives, as a change in mentality resulting from government guidelines.
How will our young people get married and raise families? Perhaps that's part of the Great Reset, the New Abnormal. Formerly common human behavior--love, marriage, children, a new generation--will become "behavior" reserved for the Ruling Class while the proles slide into a self chosen extinction--because 'government guidelines.'
And Covid vaxxing as a way of life, a new mentality. I don't know how many people have thought this through, but the reality of vaxxing for a constantly moving target--a virus that continually mutates just like the flu or the common cold--suggests a new rhythm of life in which we pretty much live from one set of shots to the next:
But it is not only face masks that Van-Tam predicts will be adopted as a cultural norm. The medical professor also stated that vaccination programs will likely drag on for some time: “I can’t tell you how long the vaccine protection is going to last for. We are very hopeful it is going to be in the region of a very high number of months, possibly a small number of years,” he said, adding that he “can’t say yet.”
“I think the virus is going to continue to change over time, as the disease has already shown signs of doing — and I think the virus is likely to be with us probably for the foreseeable future — probably in the same way that flu is,” Van-Tam warned.
“I don’t think we are ever going to take this virus away out of humankind,” meaning that, if “the virus is going to continue to change, there will come a point where we will have to reformulate the vaccines … just like we do for flu every winter.”
Our common cold immunity typically lasts for only a few months--perhaps as few as two. That's why it's common for people to get a coronavirus caused cold in the fall and then again in the spring. Influenza follows the same pattern. There is no vaccine for the coronaviruses that cause colds, and it turns out that typical effectiveness of the flu vaccine is in the 30-40% range. Beyond the likelihood that the Covid virus will continually change, requiring new vaccines, what's the likelihood that these experimental 'vaccines' will actually be as effective and safe as claimed? You're not hearing it through the MSM, but there are many respected medical science experts with serious doubts on both scores. Meanwhile, without virtually any of this being hashed out publicly, We The People are expected to simply submit without question--or with questions canceled.
The next two years ...
Surely We The People will draw a line at some point? The alternative seems to be a regime governing by the choice to adopt a paranoid lifestyle and mentality at both the personal and the social levels.
Van Tam couldn’t manage without “I think” (not even “believe”), “I don’t think”, “probably” and “envisions”. Sitting there with yet another cup of tea, reading the leaves? Spare me.ReplyDelete
What would he think of someone who never gets a cold? And can’t have flu shots, so will undoubtedly pass on any of the Covid shots they’re pushing?
Van-Tam is half Vietnamese. Here’s an interesting Brit take on him from the Guardian:ReplyDelete
To the point of QAnon being not well known among Trump supporters, see this article from Nolte at Breitbart on a poll about QAnon: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/10/16/nolte-poll-shows-hillarys-supporters-more-aware-of-qanon-than-trumps/ReplyDelete
I wonder about whether new formulations of the vaccine will still be effective. All the vaccines being rushed out use some other vector to carry the spike protein (or produce it in the case of mRNA vaccines). Astra Zeneca found their adenovirus vector resulted in a LOWER immune response when the first dose was a full dose rather than a half dose. This suggests the immune system develops a response to the adenovirus vector, making subsequent shots less effective.ReplyDelete
I believe I already had it, and since it was less of an ordeal than the flu I had a year ago, I'd be OK waiting a full year or two before I try the novel vaccines out, and would prefer to take one of the old school ones that use live attenuated or killed virus if they ever come out. I'm not an anti-vaxer by any means. But they are lying if they say they know the risks of the novel vaccines being used now compared to the old school vaccines.
I've had it, my wife and two children have had it. Not even to the level of a bad cold. Just ran longer and weird symptoms, I lost my sense of taste, only for the tastes down the center of my tongue, for about three weeks, and my wife lost her sense of smell for about the same period. Neither of us will be taking the miracle vaccine any time soon. I'm just highly skeptical of wunderwaffens, especially those that a mere year ago virtually every doctor on the planet, even not-doctor Doctors, predicted it would take at least a generation to create, for a class of virus that no vaccine had been created for before, and using a fundamental methodology never tried before. Too many questions to which the only answer is "Obey".Delete
It was a very subtle shift, but once the hard data started hitting in mid summer, did you notice how the narrative moved from 'deaths' to 'infections'?Delete
Well, here are the latest COVID "Infection Fatality Ratios" current best* estimates from the Center for Disease Control:
0-19 years: 0.00003
20-49 years: 0.0002
50-69 years: 0.005
70+ years: 0.054
That means that CDC's best* estimates from 8 months of COVID data equates to SURVIVAL rates of:
Age 0-19 … 99.997%
Age 20-49 … 99.98%
Age 50-69 … 99.5%
Age 70+ … 94.6%
The CDS site has upper bounds and lower bounds you can do the math on- this is their current 'best' estimate, certainly subject to change...but here are upper bounds survival rates e.g. 'worst case' ('Scenario 4'):
Age 0-19 … 99.99%
Age 20-49 … 99.997%
Age 50-69 … 99.0%
Age 70+ … 90.7%
Without question, the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the planet.
I work for a well know lab company and carry covid test sample 2-3 days a week. Usually 500 a weekend. No telling any were positive, but I was surprised not even to have had a cold so far.Delete
All this makes one wonder. Why is Bill Gates so heavily involved in vaccine development and is allegedly the largest single owner of farmland in the United States? What does he know that we don't? I feel like I am living in the sequel of "Soylent Green". How and why could Barr be so wrong? Having worked with many now retired Agents, how could the Bureau become so lost? China has to be thrilled with the cancellation of the XL Pipeline they will be a direct benefactor of China Joe's decision yet never be held responsible by the world for their negligence or actual intent to infect the world with the Wuhan Virus. So much to talk about but so little time.ReplyDelete
"China has to be thrilled with the cancellation of the XL Pipeline..."Delete
The cancellation the XL, together with additional steps proposed by the Biden Administration to reduce US oil and gas production, and thus US energy independence (achieved during Trump's presidency), will lead by necessity to greater US reliance on Middle Eastern petroleum.
Whether or not this thrills China, this will thrill the Deep State neocons (of both parties) who would love to move US troops back into the Middle East to protect US access to ME oil and gas.
Which will infuriate anti-US elements (some violent) in the Middle East. Whose activities will result in more US troops in the ME...and substantially higher oil prices.
Will China be thrilled? Doesn't anything that destabilizes the US or makes the US weaker make China stronger?
Of course it will make Canada rather unhappy.Delete
I couldn't stop laughing at the idea of the Q kids invading anything beyond a forum or BB. Their not exactly known for verbing and the whole psyops' moto is do nothing and everything will be fixed for you. Unless of course Q told them there's a "clue" written on the bottom of a rock in the national mall.ReplyDelete
I'm uncertain why so many are so attracted to the fairy tales and white knight syndromes but there are no shortages between EO's, QAnon's, Repubs and Insurrectionist.
It seems the idea of "cradle to grave" has infected the Conservatives when it comes to magic beans and mystical superheroes of problem solving.
Anything and everything no matter how insanely stupid besides "what can I do to fix this?"
I always thought the Q thing had been put together by some guys (four?) who thought it would be a great stunt. Like devilman, I thought they hung out on the internet where they spun conspiracy theories for the gullible. QAnon has a nice ooglyboogly sound that appeals to its right followers and those lefties looking for another White Supremacist conspiracy ...Delete
I looked into the QAnon thing when it first started being a thing. Nostradamus with a keyboard. Vague, whimsical, prognostications that could mean anything to anyone. I assessed it as a prank aimed at the 30 year-old kids living in mom's basement or a CIA psyop aimed at the same demo being run by their peer group in the Langley subbasement (busy work for the slow group). Propagandist fodder at best.Delete
I always thought QAnon was dressed up like Man Ray from Sponge Bob.Delete

"...Trump will back off from this pardon lest he PO the senators who will/may be conducting a show trial of Trump."ReplyDelete
The idea that a pardon for Assange will make the least difference as to how anyone votes at the show trial is ludicrous.
This morning my child who is on active duty with the U.S. Army stood in formation and endured a harangue from a senior NCO about how tomorrow they can breath easier because the dictator will be gone. Officers were present and said nothing. Something similar, I suppose, to Pelosi's address to the Guardsmen in front of the Capitol exhorting them to mutiny against their CinC. I can remember when Contempt for Officials was a real thing. Anyone that looks for the military to be a brake to this thing is whistling past the graveyard. Rules of Engagement are invariably lax to the point of none existence when targeting your own "countrymen". Our military "leaders" are so very ignorant of military science or history as to believe they will be exempt from a frag' reveille.
As to global lockdown and vaccinations - a great way to ensure stories of whole areas being "depopulated" remain no more than rumors and EastAsia "disinformation".
I don't think an Assange pardon would make a diff either. Therefore Trump should just do it. I just have to shake my head at people who have bought into the myth of our professional and non-political army. A professional military--at least of the size of ours--is usually a threat to democracy unless very tightly controlled by civilians.Delete
Maybe that’s why the Brits didn’t keep a standing army, preferring to hire them as needed… Hessians, Ghurkas….Delete
Yes. Assange is as loyal an American, even though he's not American, as large swaths of the DS. A pardon is entirely in order. If Brennan and Weismann can walk around free then certainly Assange should have that privilege.Delete
As to this mornings event what surprised me was the level it occurred. An E-7 addressing approx. 100 E-6 and below with an O-2 and O-3 listening. My child said there were giggles from the ranks and both officers smiling. This unit isn't a HQ unit or a bunch of specialists rubbing elbows with a lot of civilians; it's an ordinary generic unit far from any power players, it's Vindman with stripes. The rot has all but overtaken it. It shows that the real problem begins in elementary school, and not just in blue states.

The Army I was in during the 80's was apolitical. The flag officers, generals and admirals, were politicians as are the leaders of any very large organization. They stayed apolitical on topics outside their areas of expertise. Not so now. The military leadership is crumbling before our eyes and I am deeply saddened by the fact that some of them are also USMA grads. The Obama leadership is pretty damn poor.Delete
Britain did have a standing army, they just kept the regulars overseas to cling to their empire.Delete

Bluto's act is really despicable, after we learned yesterday that he refused to take effective action re the nationwide riots. We've heard of nothing effective the FBI did under Barr as AG against those insurrectionary activities, and now Barr is acting as if January 6 was something serious to be handled with great severity. Despite the evidence to the contrary. Sickening.Delete
Also, view Barr's words and actions in light of this article:Delete
So it's decided: the Uniparty will convict and bar Trump from public office. So clever, they are. What they will get is something that will make their worst nightmare look like an episode of "My Little Pony". The social/political pressure their trying to bottle up will produce something an order of magnitude more "disruptive" than Trump.Delete
Exactly what sort of information on “capital violence” is the FBI looking for? Are they trying to find out who shot Ashli Babbitt?ReplyDelete
Have you noticed--I'm sure you have--that in every police shooting that led to rioting the identity of the officer was out there pretty much immediately. Not so here.Delete
Rich Higgins has opined that it's a black officer who has openly supported BLM on his socials. He's probably right.Delete

insofar as modern dating is concerned, my 29 year old son had a first date this past weekend with a young lady who attends the same church as he. When I asked him how it went, he responded OK and my next thought (which I kept to myself) was: did you get her to take off her mask?ReplyDelete
So now instead of "getting to first base", apparently there will have to be a "shortstop" in between home plate and first base before you can move onto "heavier petting" so to speak, sigh...but I'm just an old fashioned horn dog if truth be told. Good luck son, we'd like grandkids someday!
