Clarice - very worthwhile essay but as the country has gone left, calm, reasoned responses have not only left the building, they have left the country.

Narciso: Part of Don Surber's post:

"Peter Navarro recently stated that they knew these vaccines were leaky vaccines and that the Trump Administration plan was to use these as targeted vaccines for the most vulnerable in combination with therapeutics. We were told nobody would be forced to take the vaccines.

"We now know how to better treat the disease and that there are viable therapeutics available that are being squashed by the government, Big Pharma, Big Tech, and Mainstream Media. There have been over 700,000 very serious adverse effects reported from the Covid vaccines, including over 15,000 deaths..."

'--Level 5 atmospheric river to unleash flooding across drought-stricken California--'

Backdoor predictions to affect agricultural costs, food prices, water rates, electric grid repairs and real estate.

CA has been as dry as a bone for more than a decade. Businesses and residents are leaving. With gas at $5+/gallon, food prices soaring, gated communities for the wealthy, strip malls and trailer parks for the lower middle class; sweltering temps and illegals swarming in to hide in the plethora of sanctuary cities across the state... it's holy mess.

I guess that Greater East Asia Prosperity Sphere was just a thing, huh?

The revisionism and historicism is really that blatant these days. Nevermind the fact that the Muslims and Hindus were regularly warring and butchering each other in India and that suttee was the norm and Maharajas had absolute power; the same in most of the pre-colonial societies.

The Europeans did exploit their colonies but getting the US mixed up in it is bullshit. The Japanese from 1867 played off the various Western countries against each other and were quite successful while China remained an old, sick empire exploited by all.

Out here Garcetti just removed a statue of Fr. Serra in LA and the Church has said nothing so far although the Archbishop did denounce the leftists for their propaganda a while back.

Unfortunately, they nibble at the edges and do their best to sneak through their agenda. CRT is perhaps the most illustrative example.

White man bad. Murderous POC's good.

From American Digest.

A Cabinet of Confabulations

We all know the flippety-floppety fabrications. Below is just a sampling:2

“The risk to the American public is low” (January 29, 2020) … 100,000–200,000 Americans could die from it (March 29, 2020) … make that 1.6–2.2 million (March 30, 2020).
Travel restrictions are “irrelevant” in a pandemic (February 26, 2020) … “if you want to go on a cruise ship, go on a cruise ship” (March 9, 2020) … we should be really careful about lifting travel restrictions (March 31, 2020).
“There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to wear a mask” (February 17, 2020) … “it is very important for people to universally wear masks” (July 29, 2020) (oh, but wait, the first lie was okay because it was to protect the public health community (June 12, 2020)) … “it just makes common sense that [double-masking] likely would be more effective” (February 2, 2021).
Herd immunity will kick in at 60–70 percent … no wait, 70–75 percent … no wait, 75–85 percent … no wait, 70–80+ percent … no wait, 90 percent (December 24, 2020) … oh, forget about herd immunity, will you (May 5, 2021) … just everybody get vaccinated, dammit (February 21, 2021).
“The NIH has not ever, and does not now, fund ‘gain of function research’ in the Wuhan Institute” (May 5, 2021) … “I can’t guarantee” that’s not happening (June 2, 2021).
“[The scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated” (May 5, 2020) … “I am not convinced about [COVID-19 originating naturally]” (May 24, 2021).
And the punchline: “I am consistent. I stick by what I say” (June 12, 2020).

There are hypoctitical ideological conservatives 'pontifcating' with an obsession over mis-information and conspiracy theories discussed by Tucker Carlson on his TV show.

If Carlson told you one of the sure fire cures for Covid is to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you do it?

These right wing ideologues are so angry at being displaced-- and terrified tht they're becoming irrelevant as the Pragmatic Populism fostered by Trump expands.

Never forget: 'The United Kingdom's pound sterling was the primary reserve currency of much of the world in the 19th century and first half of the 20th century until the UK almost bankrupted itself fighting World War I and World War II, resulting in the Pound losing its status as the world's most important reserve currency in favor of the United States dollar.'

China hasn't forgot. And it's goal is to surpass the U.S. economy by 2034; which will torpedo the dollar.

Dental records confirm that the human remains recovered at the Florida environmental park are of Brian Laundrie, the FBI said on Thursday.

The FBI's Denver field office released a statement saying that "a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Memorial Reserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park" were of Laundrie.

The partial human remains recovered at the environmental park where Laundrie was last believed to have been a day ago were described as "skeletal," a North Port police spokesperson had confirmed to News 4 earlier in the day. Two senior law enforcement officials also told NBC News that the apparent human remains found during the search included a portion of a human skull.

...

In addition to the human remains, the FBI said investigators found a backpack and a notebook believed to belong to Laundrie near a path at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. The agency added that up until recently, the items were underwater, and were only found now that the water had receded -- an investigative boon Bertolino had suggested would help search teams two weeks ago.
