« Montana Without Fly-Fishing? | Main | An Imminent Vaccine Mandate For Federal Employees? »

July 26, 2021



CDC data also show that recent vaccinations are reaching larger shares of Hispanic, Asian, and Black populations compared to overall vaccinations.


Time to assume that health research is fraudulent until proven otherwise?


Following along--today's waPo (Style section) has lengthy tale of black women reluctant to return to work where they will face microaggressions--things like having to groom their hair, dress professionally and be nice to coworkers and customers. One says she didn't realize how she was being microaggressed until after George Floyd's death.(I've seen better reporting my middle school kids.)


Here it is--well buried in the online edition:https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2021/07/24/black-women-office-work-home/


Government data...

  • Researchers found no evidence on the timeline of larger than normal numbers of hurricanes forming over the past few decades—instead, it showed that the numbers were on par with prior spikes in the late 1940s and early 1880s. They also found no evidence indicating that modern hurricanes are any more powerful than those in the past.

    Wait, what? Old-school data suggests hurricanes in the Atlantic are not more frequent than in the past phys.org/news/2021-07-o…

    This is what I simply cannot comprehend about TM (and all the others like him).

    He knows - because he himself points it out often enough - that the major MSM outlets are pretty much full of shit and totally leftist-agenda-driven all the time. And yet, he still respects their opinions and allows himself to be swayed by him.

    I mean, my cat is smarter than that. He stuck his nose in the electrical socket once, got a little zap and some hairs burned off, and he's never done it again. TM seems to keep sticking his nose in that socket time after time, as though he thinks one of these days he won't get a shock from it.

    >>>Curt Carpenter was a young and otherwise healthy man. While at home, his mother said, he would spoil her with the “best hugs” and a daily dosage of kindness. Curt was autistic, but Christy Carpenter said he “lived life to the fullest” and had a passion for all things Pokémon, trains, video games and frogs.<<<

    28 ... pokemon ... otherwise healthy ... ok.

    At over twice this guy's age, I started trying to get the vax as soon as the regime pronounced me eligible, and it took about 3 weeks for me to get an appointment.

    If you have seen any pics of the dude, he isn't exactly Charles Atlas. I would guess close to obese.


    Dave (in MA)

      IF her son had lived he'd be telling the people that COVID is no hoax and no joke and vaccines are a great idea.
    Kind of like that other garbage newspaper telling us that if Mary Jo had lived, her killer's policies would be providing her comfort in her old age.


    >>>When their oxygen saturation levels dropped dangerously, the mother and son were rushed to Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham. A day later, they both developed pneumonia, and Curt Carpenter was put on a ventilator.

    The constantly changing oxygen levels paired with a pneumothorax — a collapsed lung — were too much for Curt Carpenter’s body. His organs began shutting down. He was declared dead May 2.<<<

    did he have a stroke which made him brain dead?

    Dave (in MA)

    Pics included, but the fact that nobody was deemed vaccine eligible by the regime is not mentioned.


    Comcast seems to have shut down Fox. It’s been “unavailable” Since 8:30.

    It's never about the individuals or their personal tragedies; it's about the narrative.

    We are not here to judge, but we are here to expose the douchebags for who and what they are; malignant vultures pushing their agenda.

    1. Have a greater number of otherwise healthy 28 year olds died of Wuflu after not being vaccinated or died from the Wuflu vaccine? I don't know the answer to that but I have zero confidence we will ever get the answer from the media or the government.
    2. The guy was an adult and presumably able to make adult decisions. If his death makes a case for compelling vaccines or vaccine passports I'm not sure how.
    If the vaccine works then those who choose to be vaccinated are at no risk from other people's choice not to.
    If the vaccine doesn't work then it doesn't make any difference either way.
    If the risk model applied to this disease were applied to everything else in life we would own no cars, eat no sugar, bathtubs, sharp knives, baseball bats, electrical appliances if not electricity itself, scissors, etc, would all be banned. And we'd all be walking around in bubble boy getups.


    If all the aborted babies.....millions of them, had lived, they'd be thanking their MOMMIES and spoiling them with the best HUGS, SAYING.......

    Thank you oh thank you Mommie the FORCEPS TO MY BRAIN didn't kill me, and they allowed other WYMYN XIM XERS to be to KILL THEIR BABIES.


    matt - deplore me if you must

    So if there's a copper shortage and an EV materials shortage how come the Big Two and 1/2 are betting the farm on EV's? Seems like a really dumb bet to me.

    Bubble boy getups require large amounts of bubble pack, which is made from dangerous petrochemicals that may or may not be present in sufficient quantities to cause heartburn after 178 years of exposure.

    The moral of the story is that life has risks and we're all gonna die of something.

    The live forever/Peter Pan syndrome that has enraptured so many is a shibboleth.

    Big fat black bitch that is the receptionist at my PT facility can’t have a civil conversation with anyone white, which are probably 99% of the clientele.

    A friend of mine was telling us a couple or three years ago how he was briefly detained by a cop in the cemetery the next town over, around midnight. The answer to the obvious question? He was playing that version of Pokemon that required going to various places indicated by your phone. He's 62. I seem to recall him mentioning that the cop was amused.

    The Los Angeles Times (my local morning paper) is firmly in the Washington Post camp. The aroma of BS coming off the Times is so bad that I need to wear a gas mask and protective gloves while reading it. On a good morning (where the aroma is relatively low) I can spend as much as two minutes reading the "news". On a bad morning--15 seconds tops.

    After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

    Michael Smith
    Let me begin by saying I do not understand the vaccinated people's paranoia about unvaccinated people. If you are vaccinated - and the vaccines actually work - then you have nothing to fear from unvaccinated people.

    Isn't that right?

    Haven't we been told that if we take the jab(s), we are good to go?

    Now Saint Anthony of Fauci is saying, maybe even the vaccinated have to mask up.
    I can't imagine why the Biden administration can't figure out why people are skeptical about vaccinations or the directions coming out of the CDC.


    But is this really about unvaccinated people or just another power trip?

    I was thinking about this subject this morning and thought it was time to share another tactic I use when breaking stuff down so my simple mind can process them.

    Now we are up to five rules I use in considering problems in the political realm:

    1. Always ask "Who benefits?"
    2. Always look for the contradictions.
    3. Always look for examples of magical thinking.
    4. Has the problem or issue been defined correctly?
    5. Beware the emotional reasoning.

    Now time for #6:

    Use the Substitution Test.

    In language, if a word or phrase can substitute a word or phrase in a sentence; that is, the sentence is grammatical with the substitute, then the substitute has the same or similar function to the word substituted in that sentence.

    If you have a question whether you can support a given action, policy or statement, try substituting another person, group or entity for the target of that policy or statement.
    For example, let's try this with this CNN headline from a couple of weeks ago"
    "Unvaccinated people are ‘variant factories,’ infectious diseases expert says"
    Now, for "unvaccinated", substitute "Jewish", "Negroes" or "LGBTQ".

    Here's Kay Ivey, hopefully the one term "Republican" governor of Alabama, for goodness sake, who said:

    “Folks are supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down,” Ivey told reporters in Birmingham.

    Now do the same as above, for "unvaccinated", substitute "Jewish", "Negro" or "LGBTQ".

    People on the left love to hit Reagan about the failures of the HIV epidemic back in the 80's, but even then, there was no government actions to force gays to do anything they didn't have the freedom to do. There were no gay lockdowns, gays weren't disallowed from attending schools or any public facilities or transportation and they weren't rounded up and quarantined.

    And guess who was spearheading AIDS research for the government - why it was Father Athony Fauci, long before he made Cardinal and was canonized.

    Some will say it is because the public saw HIV as a "gay" disease or God's punishment for homosexuality and those people hoped the gays would die out - but even after it was discovered to be transmissible between heterosexuals and through infected blood, still nothing changed.

    As for substituting for Jews, it will probably sound better in the original German and for Negroes, in the original Jim Crow dialect.

    But understand, you need to check your hypocritical privilege if you think those statements are acceptable for "unvaccinated" but not for Jews, Negroes or LGBTQ.

    I couldn't see where he provided any evidence for that claim, though others had dug up info on how Mr. Karen had done overseas work for environmental projects that were supposedly tied to organizations that were also tied to the CIA, if the annoying multi-part embedded screenshots in some tweets were accurate.

    Dave (in MA)

    I would find it hard to imagine that an undercover CIA op would involve pestering a guy at a bait shop to gain cellphone footage of an argument where it was impossible to hear what anybody was saying, but stranger things have happened.


    Dave, it’s so crazy that no one would suspect the CIA would do it which is why the CIA would do it because it’s so crazy no one would ever suspect that it makes perfect sense because it is so cunning.

    So why hasn't Georges Soros been eliminated yet? he is responsible for physician assisted suicide, abortion on demand, marijuana legalization, Defund the police, the gay marriage agenda, the leftist DA's, etc

    Notice a trend there?

    I was listening to the news yesterday talking about how new cases have skyrocketed to 3,000/day in LA with hundreds, count 'em, hundreds hospitalized and @ 400 in the ICU's. Deaths are at 1-3 persons/day due to Covid.

    Doesn't that sound odd after what we have been through?

    Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

    Most likely it's not a CIA dude at all but it is the CIA filtering the claim out there that he is CIA to get the yokels chasing their tails.

    What blows my mind is that the national polls all indicate that trust in the media is down in the low double digit range and yet somehow the elite seem to believe ever more in the message that is being sent.

    Same with Congress. Trust is at an all time low and yet Pelosi & Company peddle wilder and wilder aluminum foil hat policies.

    Been gone all afternoon. Went to my sister’s while my daughter set off flea bombs. The cats and her dog are camping out st her place. Then she called me and said that the police were down at the same housr as the kid photo taker. Shouts of things like “I’ll kill him myself!” Four cars.

    Finally left sister’s and headed to the Kroger pharmacy , and they were missing an entire shipment so they were short 2 of my meds. Double checked when I got home and called Kroger after I figured out what I was short.

    The AC in my car needs to be charged so it ‘s hotter than heck. I also got stuck waiting for a train. When I got home I also had to plug in the stove, fridge, and dryer. I am hot and tired so am going to watch some TV.
