James D.

History is unlikely to portray him as a traitor for not mounting an insurrection to keep his job.

Depend who writes the history.

If, as seems likely, Biden gets us into a pointless, costly and losing war (or wars), craters the economy and his appointees keep turning up the heat on destructive, divisive, racist identity politics policies to the point that there's massive bloodshed in the streets...and Biden was the last guy who could have stopped all that within the bounds of the law...he's going to look pretty damn bad to history.

matt @ 2:32, great post.

I never would have guessed that Matt would be a PROGLODITE RACIST against undocumented El Salvadoran refugees, who came to America for a better life, then fell into the "Wrong crowd" and because of RACISM and POVERTY reverted to crime to feed Juan and Maria. And is only being persecuted because he is a man of COLOR.

Old Lurker

James, it comes down to whether Pence has the authority AT says or not.

Has anybody said whether that story is real or memorex?

Even Barroid would get tied up in knots trying to swat that butterfly.

I saw Freddie King multiple times at a local club with that Gibson slung over one massive shoulder. Didn't have the body type that screamed "longevity". Nice hoarse voice to offset the stinging guitar lines. A legend for writing Hideaway.

This has been linked before and the AT story links it as well;

Cap'n "Real doctors are your friends; public health apparatchiks not so much."

There's the rub.

I plan to email A-mom about what newby Docs are taught these days, but I was listening to the back 'n forth between YL and her Sister and BIL over Christmas. On one hand, the young docs could not dismiss YL's "in MY case with MY kids" comments about Covid/Masks/Schools/Shots arguments about the damage done by over reacting. But then in their next breath, the two young MDs both default to "yes, but..." gobblygook about public health stats in large populations, and the "public good for large numbers..." blah, blah, blah.

Not wanting to get between them, my thought was that they were confusing what is sacred between a (specific) Physician and a (specific) Patient, and what a "Public Health Official" might think about populations.

My bet is A-mom and her peers get it but newly minted MD's are born with group-speak imbedded.

GUS

OL, public health officials have no ONE on ONE Doctor Patient relationship. They are MACRO GOVERNMENT PSEUDO SCIENTISTS who control MACRO POPULATIONS. POWER has nothing to do with SCIENCE!!!!!!

Berenson is a lonely voice talking about Covid.

He's not that lonely, really.

You're right jimmyk. He's far from alone. My intended point was that the guy spends a lot of time being dogpiled on Twitter, which (to my eye) gives him a bit of a shell-shocked vibe.

Glad to hear that ABob found the discussion valuable too, thanks again to Robin for noting it! Berenson said he doesn't believe in conspiracy but instead in "confluence".

He and Rogan are interesting to listen to when they talk (on balance disparagingly) about PDJT.
A lot of people are, IMO, behind the curve on this. But it's interesting to hear, sort of like it's interesting to read TM's tweets.

I’m convinced that Vitamin D (and a strong immune system) are THE key to COVID-19.

But I am also convinced that is precisely why governments aren’t telling us that.

This was never about public health and a pandemic. This has always been a “plannedemic” that they’ve used against us to foment panic and fear, steal the election, curtail our civil liberties, destroy our economies and businesses, justify lockdowns and prepare us for their globalist / communist / authoritarian “Great Reset”.

Just had a really interesting conversation with one of my friends here. He owned a successful business in Ohio.

One of the reasons I moved to this park, was that it was full of retired regular people - like cops and firefighters. It is also very inexpensive so for the first time in my life I don’t worry about money. I’ve always loved learning from other people so the last place I wanted to be was around pompous lawyers and doctors who think they are important.

My friend was telling me he is really sick of people with no experience giving him
advice in things they know very little about. He’s right - but I find it interesting that you don’t have to be a doctor or lawyer to think you are important.

I can’t imagine wasting the time when you could learn something on pretending you know something. Am I weird?

Agree with Jane .
Pence is a very honorable, religious and principled individual.
He used to be good friends with Paul Ryan.
Do I see him as strong presidential material?
Not sure.
I like Cotton and Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
Everyone here continues to be enamored with President Trump.
When I look at how hard people fought for George Bush in 2000,I have to wonder why more senators aren’t willing to do the same for Donald Trump.
Shaming people into doing the right thing doesn’t seem like a wise strategy to me.
When did judges become this quivering mass of scaredy cats that can’t rule on obvious fraud.

First two paragraphs:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) filed a lawsuit against Vice President Mike Pence in a bid to overturn the presidential election results, asking a court to give Pence “exclusive authority” to decide which Electoral College votes should be counted.

According to the lawsuit (pdf), Pence has a role in the upcoming Jan. 6, 2021, joint session of Congress to count all 50 states’ Electoral College votes. Gohmert’s lawsuit, which was filed against Pence in his capacity as vice president, is asking a federal judge to strike down the 1887 Electoral Count Act and to grant Pence the authority to overturn the election results in favor of President Donald Trump.

So let's say little Billy succeeds in cooling the planet [which in itself is bad since cooler = more dead people, mostly more dead BROWN people] and a good sized volcano goes off. Do we get to hang little Billy by the neck until dead for the hundreds of thousands or millions of deaths from the ensuing couple of years of droughts and famines?
Since we don't get to hang Fauch by the pouch for the thousands who died unnecessarily by his irresponsible suppression of HCQ, I'm guessing not.

look at the case fatality charts of the countries that use HCQ

I thought France (except for a brief interruption) does use HCQ. I'm remembering a widely linked chart that showed how that interruption of around two weeks seemed to result in a big upsurge in deaths or hospitalizations.

And I asked this before but don't think I ever saw an answer: Is Quercetin a poor substitute for HCQ? I've been taking it, along with Zinc, based on amom's recommendation.

MissMarple2

Just got off the phone with my sister the surgery nurse. They got a new doctor in one of the practices who is Chinese, and everyone kept saying how "lovely a person" he was.

She told the other nurses that was a bad sign and the kiss of death, as far as she was concerned. Sure enough, the guy turned out to be a complete ass and made one of the other nurses CRY.

She said she was damned if she let someone yell at her and make her cry, but she wouldn't say anything because this close to officially retiring, she didn't want to have to go for DIVERSITY TRAINING!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--look at the case fatality charts of the countries that use HCQ--

I would think the one thing everyone should be able to agree on in a rational world is that, while certain policies and treatments do seem effective there appears to be no visible correlation for overall outcomes with any policies anywhere. For every example someone supplies to support their particular claim there are a half dozen counter examples.

Occasionally you display a tendency to read into a comment what you want to see in it even when it has explicitly excluded the claim you are disputing.

I explicitly said and I quote "while certain policies and treatments do seem effective" which includes all manner of Ivermectin, HCQ and any other particular treatments you might want to name that do seem effective.

I also explicitly said "there appears to be no visible correlation for overall outcomes with any policies anywhere".
That means that when comparing states and nations there appears to be little to no correlation of overall outcomes for use or nonuse of masks, lockdowns or no lockdowns, socialized or private medicines, primitive or advanced countries, tropical or high latitude positions on the globe and a hundred other claims people make.
