What wil happen today, Jane? Hopefully the TC goodies will take your mind off the H2O deficit! :-))

Old Lurker

A-mom in the wee hours: " Instead of trying everything to save a life, their goal during the crisis is to save as many patients as possible. Those less likely to survive would not get the same kind of care offered in normal times."

See, that would make a lot of sense in a true time of war type threat and most everybody would understand.

But at this stage of the "game" it is clear to all that Covid is not and never was such a threat, rather it was simply a device to scare the entire globe into compliance with the Globalists' Wet Dream of Total Control.

And it seems to have worked.

At best (for Progs), the Globalists will accomplish their dreams. At the least, this LA Hospital Policy preps Deplorables for the health care rationing and death committees that we have all known must come with Socialized Medicine. Sell it as part of the Covid Pandemic; keep it around long after the crisis is gone.

THIS "Interesting thread which begins this way:

" BREAKING: Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BEITA, that the World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million United States Dollars in the form of "Covid Relief Aid" on condition that he do the following:
2) Impose an "extreme lockdown on his people"
Force them to wear face masks.
Impose very strict curfews.
Impose a police state.
Crash the economy."

...is why I hate the entire concept of Twitter. On the one hand, I am predisposed to believe every single word of MM's 7:13 post. But my rational brain (and the cynicism born of the last ten years) says that it might be just as made up to stir MY emotions as so many other propaganda efforts going in both directions have been.

I am so so tired of being played.

It is genuinely astonishing that after all these years, and all the outright lies Kristol has told, that gullible people treat his claims about secret conversations he had with anonymous sources -- ones which *always* perfectly coincide with his political agenda -- as credible.

Bill Kristol @BillKristol
1. This thread is based on recent conversations with people whose information and judgment I trust, who in turn have spoken candidly with Trump appointees still on the inside.

Here's a question: Why did Trump and Barr, when they negotiated Barr's departure, settle on Dec. 23?

As long as you serve the establishment's agenda of militarism and corporatism, there's nothing you can do - no lie big enough, no claim false enough - to lose credibility.

They'll scapegoat a Judy Miller if things get too glaring, but she's an Oracle of Truth compared to Kristol


Bill Kristol has never been anything other than a tawdry neocon propagandist and never will be. Yet he's now literally one of liberals' most trusted and cherished pundits, a regular MSNBC guest, a social media star to Dems.

They have the spokesman that movement deserves.

Trump should send a letter to Congress explaining that before they are politicians with agendas they are Americans, and to revise the 'Covid bill' to put Americans first.

Old Lurker

For example, I have no idea whether Trump is making plays to actually get sworn back in on Jan 20, or whether his goal, sensing that is impossible, is to solidify an army of 75,000,000 for use in the future for "something" and for "somebody" and at "sometime".

Did I say I am tired of being played?

OL, I think a news consumer needs to be in the mode of an intelligence analyst. One reads stuff from various places, and realizes a lot of it is fake news, facts taken out of context, and slanted rhetoric. Hopefully one is able to get a reasonable view of the actual facts from all the paint splattered on the wall.

Unfortunately, given jobs and family responsibilities, there may not be enough time to do a thorough intelligence analyst's job on the news without loss of sleep.

I’m not very well versed in MAGA 4D, but I my Holiday Inn creds never fail me when it comes to Commie 4D.

I am of the opinion that Padilla wasn’t selected by Newsom for any other reason than to vacate the California Secretary of State during the Recall Newsom effort. I am certain this will enact faux roadblocks.

OL, I'm fine with Trump throwing up Hail Marys at the end of the game with a dual purpose ((i) small chance Congress doesn't certify enough electors to throw matters into the House, and (ii) planning for the next phase of his assault on the Uniparty (whether planning for a 2024 run, starting a new social media network, both of these, or something else)). If Trump can discredit the vote by mail process, that itself would be a major accomplishment. In addition, keeping up enthusiasm for a big turnout for GOP candidates in the Georgia runoff may be an additional benefit.

Local news has a story which began in June. It is picked up out of Tampa and I couldn't get it to post here.

Yesterday 20 Golden Retrievers arrived from China, via the efforts of a local (Tampa) rescue group, which said they had managed to rescue them in China and were holding them there until they could get them here with owners willing to adopt them. Otherwise, they might have been butchered for sale on the dog meat market.

All very heartwarming, and I do think there should be more publicity about the dog meat market in China, because people like my daughter were unaware such a thing existed, and she was horrified.

HOWEVER, I do have some questions:

1. Why do we have dog adoption groups still in China?
2. Are the dogs able to carry the Corona virus?
3. How much did we have to pay the Chinese to get the dogs here?
4. Are the Chinese making money by holding dogs hostage, or is this a money laundering operation?

Narciso

Im just trying to grasp how we ended up here, with the likes of schwab and soros determining our fate.

peter

I'm with TC-I don't care if some of Trump's actions are multi-motived (as the lawyers like to say.) With only six Republican senators willing to vote against Porkulus, the chances of his pulling out the stop the steal in Congress are mighty slim.

I'm also amused by Narc's 12:46; the court held that if you've been punched, you can't be SLAPP'ed

And ive takem the long view, now obviously neither player had enough influence to bring these first ripples to fruition but they rode them, to prominence.

Earth Day was Ira Einhorn's homage to celebrate Lenin's birthday and promote world communism. Recall Lenin was the first "environmentalist" in his speeches from 1916-17, they would be the only trusted stewards of all lands.

Dan Bongino was going on and on about the Porkulus bill and national debt and inflation yesterday.

I was glad to see him do it because although he does get pretty irate, he's a pretty good person for explaining complicated issues.

From last night:

Even if Senate RINOs supported Trump, House Dems would be able to get the "official" Electors chosen.

Clarice, curious how you feel about that. I presume it's with your approval?

jimmyk

I should add, I'm deciding what to recommend to my mother, should she have the opportunity, who's going on 94. My concern is that the risk from side effects might be worse than the benefits, especially since she lives alone and doesn't face much exposure risk.

I think Einhorn, and his handlers, were looking for cover to slip in the celebration. If you might recall, spills were fairly common in those days and certainly coincidentally hyped by the enemedia.

As to my general thesis does it make sense.

I may have to give approval--I have for the regular flu vaccine. Because she's under constant medical care, jimmyk, I will approve. It has been very hard on the facility trying to keep all these frail people from getting Covid and treating those who from time to time test positive, I think this will be a blessing. And it's hard on the residents being cut off from in person visits and such.

Good Morning! My mother will probably get her vaccine by mid-January. My mother-in-law doesn't know when she will receive hers. Both mothers still make their health decisions. In fact, my mother intends to break out of assisted living as soon as she is vaccinated because she is determined to live independently. This has been an ongoing *discussion* with my mother all year and some conversations haven't been pleasant. The Covid lockdown delayed any action she tried to take. Knowing my mother, she'll be on a plane Florida after she's vaccinated. :)

Davod

The only problem with Trump suggesting a higher Covid payment is that of course the Dems would agree. They won't agree to reducing anything else to cover the additional cost.

Methinks the braying jackass was trying to say "One Trick Pony" but he got it confused with the expression, "one horse town." All ponies are horses but not all horses are ponies.

I realized that my little comment last night missed the obvious. A kid who graduated in 1970 bought his 3rd (custom) home in seven years while free of any kollege debt. Today that kid would probably have $100K in debt and not buy his first house by 40, if then.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

From the bird shaped drone link;
"The poachers are armed with powerful long-range rifles and scopes so Aves used for anti-poacher patrol will probably have to stay at max altitude to avoid gunfire."

This writer has evidently never shot a gun or at least one at a moving target
It's hard enough hitting a clay pigeon at 90 feet with a shotgun pattern.
Hitting a drone going 30 mph at 500-5,000 feet with a rifle is next to impossible.
