Brief notes seems to be the way to go today.
We've all heard the comparisons of a vax passport regime to Jim Crow. I've been waiting for someone to point out how literal that type of Jim Crow could turn out to be. My thinking has been that African Americans are participating in the vax experiment to a very significantly lower degree than other "others"--meaning especially Whites and Asians. Two words pop immediately to my mind when I hear people, usually Dems, gloating at the prospect of instituting a vax-pass regime that will hammer all those anti-science deplorables: Disparate Impact. It stands to reason, and here's a story that shows how big a deal that could be, when Karens start denying Blacks access to the normal amenities of American life--like travel, access to higher education, etc.:
Biden’s vaccine push fails to gain traction with African Americans

The Biden administration knew the key to a successful Covid vaccination campaign would be reaching the most vulnerable populations. But more than five months in, even a blueprint that’s worked with other ethnic and racial groups isn’t doing enough to win over Black Americans.
Less than a quarter of Black Americans had received their first Covid-19 shot as of June 7 based on available federal data, amid a weekslong stagnation that has defied the government’s ramped-up effort to accelerate vaccinations and reach the nation’s most vulnerable communities.
One assumes that at some point someone will clue the Dems in, but you never know.

I'm for a return to normality--a word I use advisedly:
Majority Of Americans Want To Return To Normal, 71 Percent Of Democrats Disagree
Meanwhile ZeroHedge reports:
Nobody Wants To Work: Job Openings Soar To All Time High 9.3 Million As Record Numbers Quit Their Job
I'm no economist, but I think this spells trouble. ZeroHedge notes that "it has never been more difficult for small business to fill job openings," and small business is what drives the economy, no matter those who think coding does.
ZeroHedge also has a piece on the phenomenon that we described the other day as the wheels falling off the Prog bandwagon--such as it ever was. ZeroHedge focuses on the hatred being directed at Joe Manchin, the Liz Cheney of the Senate:
Progressive Wish List In Limbo As Democrats Eat Their Own
Ha ha! Sounds like eating Brussels sprouts to me! They can have my helping, and welcome to it.
Paul Mirengoff notes something that bodes poorly for Dem prospects in Election 2022--Americans now favor killing more people. Legally, that is:
A new Pew Research poll finds that 60 percent of Americans favor the death penalty for people convicted of murder. This result is a stunning turnaround. Less than five years ago, Pew found that only 49 percent of Americans favored the death penalty for convicted murderers. This was the lowest level of support in more than four decades.
Go figure, right? Crime goes up, and so does support for execution. It's almost like there's some kind of linkage there. We need a Prog to explain this. Meanwhile, read more here: Support for the death penalty surges.
Finally, credit where it's due. Back when Covid emerged on the world scene we were on the lab-engineered bandwagon. We still are, of course. It was always pretty much just common sense and basic science. Among the several sources we relied upon was the work of Indian scientists, which TGP cites today as a reminder of Fauci's perfidy. As well as the perfidy of virtually our entire ruling class: In 2020 Indian Scientists Discovered COVID-19 Was Engineered with AIDS-Like Insertions – Emails Show Fauci Called It “Outlandish” which led to the Published Study Being Withdrawn. Here's an excerpt from the original study, dated in January, 2020. This should sound very familiar if you've been following developments during the last few weeks:
The study found 4 new AIDS like insertions in the Coronavirus which were absent from other Coronaviruses. This finding the study states is “unlikely to be fortuitous in nature”, meaning that it is not a naturally occurring phenomenon.
We are currently witnessing a major epidemic caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The evolution of 2019-nCoV remains elusive. We found 4 insertions in the spike glycoprotein (S) which are unique to the 2019-nCoV and are not present in other coronaviruses. Importantly, amino acid residues in all the 4 inserts have identity or similarity to those in the HIV-1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag.
Interestingly, despite the inserts being discontinuous on the primary amino acid sequence, 3D-modelling of the 2019-nCoV suggests that they converge to constitute the receptor binding site. The finding of 4 unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV, all of which have identity /similarity to amino acid residues in key structural proteins of HIV-1 is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature. This work provides yet unknown insights on 2019-nCoV and sheds light on the evolution and pathogenicity of this virus with important implications for diagnosis of this virus.
The scientists were surprised to observe such insertions and were startled “as it is quite unlikely for a virus to have acquired such unique insertions naturally in a short duration of time”.
That was the same reaction that Kristian Andersen had, as well as his colleagues. As well as Nobel winning virologist David Baltimore. As well as any reputable scientist who wasn't bought and paid for by Fauci and his controllers. And it was know, basically, right at the beginning.
You uttered the key words "disparate impact" when discussing vaccine passports. That would make any such policy of requiring vaccination systemically racist, right?ReplyDelete
It would also show what a lie the repeated mantra of "conservative white men" being the reason for Biden not hitting his vax rate by the end of this month. Black people are vax'd at approximately half the rate that white or Asians are. So many narrative fails in one policy....conservatives should be pointing this out, repeatedly.
I wouldn't underestimate the level of Karens' cognitive dissonance. They will simply say blacks are exempt from restrictions because reparations,or something like that.ReplyDelete
The Democrat party only began caring about blacks in the 1960s and even then Rs outnumbered Ds on the 1964 civil rights act. Afterwards, the Democrat party used blacks for political power.ReplyDelete
Heck LBJ threw out the all black Mississippi delegation to the Democrat 1964 presidential convention. That delegation was a direct challenge to the all white delegation the state sent and LBJ was not having any of it.
Regarding disparate impact of having Chines Covid passports ... aside from the utter lack of constitutionality ... yeah, it would be nice if they get hoisted on their own petard, but the media, social and old school, will not allow that happen.
While the Democrats used the Chinese bug as a cudgel against their only enemy, Republicans, I think massive election fraud and cheating was the real reason.
Cleveland Clinic study (not yet certified by peer review) showed that those who had had Covid would not benefit from being “vaccinated”.ReplyDelete
