BIDEN’S OPEN BORDER ALIEN INVASION: “Bidenville” Goes Alfresco in Texas…

Yes! YES!!! I will indeed say it!

Imagine if this was happening under Pres. Trump, dammit!

BTW, the term “alfresco” in Italian also means “jail”.

Rage

This is the angriest I have ever been about politics in my life.

Why now? They hated my beloved Reagan and called him all kinds of names. True, but they were unable to stop him from being elected twice.

The left seemed to support McCain and Romney, those polite go along to get along guys; that is until they got nominated. Then the left went to town. Well, okay, that’s politics, I figured.

And the press was always nutty left, for as long as I can remember, but now at least we have a couple of conservative alternatives in blogs and tv stations and now, because of Rush, on the radio.

So how come I’m so angry now?

It began last spring.

First they tried to steal our lives. No beauty parlors, no restaurants, no gym, no theater, no ballet, etc. no getting together with friends, no visits from my family.

But then strike one, the biggest lie. We are ordered – no getting together with anyone, no crowds; and wear masks.

But it’s not only okay to go outside to join the “demonstrations”, but essential because they are too important and historical not to show yourself a part of them.

So the huge crowds were there in all of the big cities, with no masks and they were proclaimed brave and what we need more of. No schools; they were closed. Nothing much else to do, so why not?

That’s when it happened big time with me. I became angry and stopped believing the lies about Covid, the changing, daily, sometimes even minute to minute, instructions, the lying and mockery about Trump while it was the left that was manipulating us all the time. That was when the government lost me and I became the biggest fan of Trump. And the left should be proud; it was they who drove me to Trump closer than ever.

I always say I didn’t want Trump because we had so many good candidates and I didn’t trust Trump to be a conservative. But I came to like him later. He chose Pence, he cut taxes and regulations, and he insulted the lying press – a good trifecta.

Well after January of 2020 Trump’s choices about Covid were fabulous and it was easy to see that the leftist leaders and the news people were nothing but liars and hypocrites. I began writing my essays in the spring of 2020.

Then strike two – the next big thing happened and that was it. I knew this choice was for the big one, the real and serious Communist takeover of the country. There had to be chaos and inability to cope so we would have to look to the government for help.

The “peaceful demonstrations” became violent in Minnesota, and then in N.Y.C. DeBlasio told the police to “stand down and let them get it out of their systems.” This was the exact opposite of what Rudy did by fixing the small bad things and then the big bad things could be stopped. When the destroyers were not stopped at once, I knew this was according to the left’s strategy.

That was the pivotal moment. I knew the radical left meant business when DeBlasio did that and I was not wrong. Every outrageous decision and pack of lies upon lies was to set the stage. But how come my America loving good citizen liberal friends were not as angry as I was? How come all of that violence being tolerated in those big cities since that time didn’t matter to them? The tearing down of statues? How come when they showed those movies of New York as a ghost town, my friends didn’t care? Because they didn’t know about the violence. Because they never saw those movies! Aha.

Instead they were being led by the nose to fear Covid 24/7, to fear climate change and worry about abortion laws.

So from early last year until now I have been angry.

I don’t have to tell you how I feel about the election or every horrific decision Biden and his handlers or puppeteers have come up with since and how they are systematically destroying our country. I know you agree with me about those.

But then – strike three – and the worst blow of all. The way America left Afghanistan. Is there an American who does not know about that? (I am afraid to ask my liberal friends.) Is there an American who knows about the way things went in Afghanistan who applauds those events? Is there a sentient American who would say that if Trump were president and conducted our exit it would go the same way? If so, put that American in the mental ward.

Instead Biden went all dictator on Americans who aren’t cooperating and getting the vaccine. See how tough he is? Zero hour. I’m scared. But in the meantime he tells us how cooperative the Taliban are – as they are killing families and cutting off heads and beating women in the streets and not allowing planes to leave.

I watched a “Firing Line” program – they have a nerve calling it that as if Buckley would love it as the legitimate offspring of his brilliant shows. It is not! This one had George Will calling himself a conservative, insulting every American who supports Trump as someone afflicted with cult of personality syndrome. He sat there with a straight face applauding that Biden was the president and said Trump will not run again because he couldn’t face a second loss. Ugh. He didn’t face the first one yet. But if Trump, or you, or I says that, that must be delusional according to George Will.

Will said that Trump demeaned his office by being so coarse and degrading. Selective indignation indeed. Biden was worse in his entire career and when running against Trump and as president, if Biden manages to say a thoughtful thing, often it is insulting. And all of those on the left who called Trump and his supporters every filthy thing, liar, Nazi, racist, together with his violence loving supporters – that is not coarse or degrading or even audible to George Will. I wanted to throw rotten tomatoes at him. It was revolting.

Well anyway, I am angry to beat the band. And we are so polite. What will this administration do next that will finally make us want to be less polite?

Do NOT let them pass those spending bills which include amnesty for all illegals and then of course allowing them to vote, allowing 16 year olds to vote, and and which set up cradle to grave dependency on government and loads of new high taxes on everyone. And by all means do not allow them to pass the nationalization of election law. Write, call, demonstrate. Do all you can to stop those atrocities from becoming law.

If they become law, I will no longer be able to be angry. If anyone finds out I am angry I will be shipped to the gulag.

G-d bless America and long may we be free to be angry or whatever we want to feel despite those bastards.

* * *

Addendum to this and to my recent definition post:

A Willism – This is when someone acknowledges ugliness in all of its varieties on one side because he doesn’t like that side, but becomes deaf dumb and blind making him unable to note the same ugliness or worse or speak of it, when it comes from the side he is more sympathetic to.

Do I have to spell out who the paradigm is for that one?

The Time of “Play It By Ear” in This Nation Must Come to an End … and It Could Be the End of Our Nation

We are soooo in trouble in this country, and we are sinking deeper and deeper into the grave of our republic. Many have just sat back and, I don’t know, figured it would not— nahhh— never get to this point … or live by the false premise of “Election? Oh well, my vote doesn’t count anyway”.

If everything that has happened and is happening over these last eight months were happening under a republican POTUS and administration the MSM would be wall-to-wall with coverage, and a democrat-led Congress would halt any/all other business and hold endless heated hearings, with a mountain of subpoenas, and impeachments of the president. Instead, we have this. Not only that, those people I mentioned above who don’t realize they’re “playing it by ear” have gone completely deaf and dumb. The midterm elections cannot be taken for granted. These career vultures in DC must be voted out. Because they are loading the voter rolls with the hundreds of thousands that are still flooding our southwestern borders and have recently been unvetted Afghani human cargo trafficked democrat voters flown into our country. And now the feds are stopping Americans from seeing exactly WTAF is happening on our border.

Some helpful definitions

A Liberal – someone who reads only left wing news sources and pays attention only to left wing blogs, radio and tv shows. He is unwilling to discuss anything or look anything up to refute it, if information appears that is counter to his prejudices.He is cultish in his beliefs and chooses mostly to associate only with fellow liberals. There are two kinds of liberals, those who are so closed minded they cannot bear even to talk to someone who does not agree with them and those who will know you are wrong but will put up with you. Liberals have a feeling of moral superiority and holier than thou-ness. My liberal friends would not choose to associate with me, but they love me too much because I am fun to be with, and friendship with me is enriching.

A conservative – someone who prefers right wing news sources and pays more attention to VDH and Mark Levin and Dennis Prager, and Rush, when he was alive, than to consider following MSNBC or CNN, willing to look up anything that runs counter to what he believes to try to prove that information factually incorrect. Not afraid to change his mind. Some conservatives do not fit this mold. They get stuck and do not want to be told anything. In this these conservatives remind me of liberals. There are two kinds of conservatives. Those who are religious and want to convert everyone to Christianity. They will love bomb you until you submit. And those who are fiscal conservatives or libertarians and believe in live and let live about religion. The first are as irritating to me as any liberal in his righteousness is. My conservative friends have the best of both worlds in being friends with me. I am fun to be with, well informed and articulate, and friendship with me is enriching, and it’s easy because we agree on most things. If my conservative friends send out incorrect things, I scold them and tell them to let everyone they sent it to know that it is false. We have enough aggravation without adding to it by sending out our own fake news.

I abhor dishonesty above all.

Liberals love to accuse conservatives or Trump of lying all the time. This is purely and simply projection.

Witness how reports on Covid changed day to day, even, minute to minute sometimes. And no one ever apologized for their inconsistencies. Then they want to tyrannize Americans as if only the government knows what is good for everyone. Witness Biden day to day in his descriptions of how we left Afghanistan. This last is a paradigm of how it is truly LIBERALS who lie all the time.

Nice people – There are nice people in politics. They made their money before they entered politics. They do not go into politics to become rich. They do it idealistically, as a way to pay back the country for the gifts they have received. They live lives of service to the country. They are to be admired. They want to get along. They won’t refute filthy things they are accused of because it is not gentlemanly. They serve in the best way they can.
They like bipartisanship. They befriend everyone possible. They maintain good reputations. George W. Bush is the paradigm. (Only after he was president, obviously.)

Evil people – There are many evil people in politics. My definition of who is evil is the anithesis of how liberals would define who is evil in politics. Evil people in general came into politics to become rich. They never ran a business, or, as some put it, except to pay personal bills, they have not written their signatures on the front of checks. Or, as others have put it, they have never even had a lemonade stand. They leave politics after having enriched themselves into the multi millions. Contrary to popular belief there are more Democrats in Congress who are millionaires than Republicans. Evil people come into government because they want to control others. They look good. They speak platitudes that sound good and they are generally popular because they say what most people want to hear. They are often charming. But their lust for power over the lives of others is stronger than anything else. They support high taxes, but they pleasantly define it as forcing those more advantaged having to pay their fair share. But in the end everyone pays too much. (Beware of the word “fair”. In politics fair a four letter word more obscene than any other.)
They support big government spending and programs that bring power into Washington, leaving personal sovereignty by the wayside. But they sound good and that makes them likable. They maintain good reputations. Obama is the paradigm.

A Donald Trump – a bull in a china shop. He is already rich, already powerful. He decided to come into government to fix quickly what he had learned is wrong because he saw what in government made it difficult to run a business.
He is disliked by both Republicans and Democrats. Disliked by Democrats because he is disrupting their fun at pulling power and money away from Americans and into government, and disliked by Republicans because he is showing how things can be accomplished that they had been protesting couldn’t be done. He is a nice person. (See definition above but exclude the parts about wanting to get along.) He loves only America and Americans and wants to do only what is best for them. He is not an evil person. (See definition above.) In government he has no wish to control people. His goal is to get as many people as possible on their own to earn good salaries and be free to develop thriving businesses small and large. He wants to reduce the size and scope of government as much as possible. He wants Americans to have the most power over themselves and their personal property as possible. He only maintains a good reputation by all he helped, which is a lot of people. The country thrived under his leadership. He annoyed those who were discombobulated because he was impolitic and told it like it is. Fake News was one of his favorite phrases. He was hated by evil people (see definition above) and a large part of the public who approve of the government giving handouts, and who listen to CNN and read The New York Times and who never heard of VDH or Mark Levin and who HATED Rush Limbaugh.

A Toomey – Someone who was a reliable person who was consistent in his beliefs and then suddenly says things as if he were programmed to believe the exact opposite of everything you thought he believed all the time. Biden is the paradigm.

Toomified – What happens when a Toomey is reprogrammed somehow and is no longer recognizable. He became Toomified. Toomey is the paradigm.

It is why the then democrat leadership (pretty much the same usual suspects today) during the Obama years bent-over and rolled-over out of the way to let Barack Obama circumvent Congress and rule unfettered. The other side … well, not all of the other side cowers to the first side, or is stronger at practicing disloyalty than loyalty to their own party’s president. Many on this side want to save the proverbial patient now on stuttering life support as the left reaches for the plug. Whether or not you like it, we are all in this war and every inch is battleground. Pick a side…

John Ondrasik from “Five for Fighting” has written a powerful new song that Facebook is currently trying to ‘disappear’ for, of course, greatly ridiculous and biased reasons. During both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars Ondrasik and his band strongly supported our troops…

Five for Fighting: NEW SONG: BLOOD ON MY HANDS

Like all Americans, I was stunned and horrified at the images of falling bodies from planes, mothers handing babies over walls, and terrified Afghans being crushed to death at checkpoints due to our precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan. I am deeply troubled by the plight of Afghan women forced to live under the return of Taliban rule and felt great sadness when reading a story about a popular folk singer, Fawad Andarabi, being dragged from his home and shot by the Taliban.

Though I believe the decision to withdraw or not from Afghanistan has good arguments on both sides, I cannot comprehend why the Biden administration would not extend the August 31 deadline thus leaving American citizens, SIV holders, and Afghan allies behind to a terrorist Taliban regime. As a life-long supporter of our military I believe “no man left behind” applied to all Americans as well as those we promise to protect.

On the day 13 of our soldiers and over 60 Afghans were killed by a suicide bomber I sat down to write this song. After our last solider left Afghanistan, I received a call from a friend organizing rescue evacs of “AM-CITS” and SIV holders. It was a highly emotional call and moment of clarity. Private citizens now had the burden of risking their lives to rescue Americans and Afghan allies that our government left behind. America has broken her promise, but these brave Americans have not.

America was built on the foundational freedom to criticize one’s leaders and hold them accountable. It is what separates us from our communist and dictatorship adversaries. How else can we as a nation learn from our mistakes and make better decisions moving forward without honest reflection on our actions? To date, I have not seen that accountability.

There is a great tradition of artists speaking their minds and calling out their leaders for answers. Many of those have been inspirations to me. I understand that this song might be perceived by some as a political attack, but those who follow me know I am an American with a history of calling out both sides. If Donald Trump were President and he put us in the same situation, the song would remain the same, only the names would change.

After hearing “Blood on My Hands,” a friend said he found the song to be politically neutral, but morally-forward. My hope is that this song helps demand accountability, so the American promise is never again forsaken.

Hump Day: Pimp and Circumstances…

Just think of ‘midweek’ as the tallest hill on the roughest and fastest rollercoaster … and your car’s security bar just broke.

The Barmaid’s Tale Pt. 2:

Twitchy: AOC says ‘they’ want to trick you into thinking Democrats are referring to doctors and lawyers when they say ‘rich’

It’s what they say it is from one moment to the next in order to arouse feelings over fact.

Hey, Sandy, if you’ve lost Slate

Slate: AOC’s Met Gala Dress Is Not the Statement She Thinks It Is

When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, alongside powerhouse designer Aurora James, walked up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night, a noticeable, yet succinct political message blared across the back of her soft, cream colored gown: TAX THE RICH.

This is not exactly a new cause for Ocasio-Cortez. In January 2019, for instance, she suggested that a marginal 70 percent tax rate could be imposed on the wealthiest Americans. But now she was bringing the message through the front door of one of the glitziest events of the year: the Met Gala…

In other words, the dress was intended to push the conversation about taxing the rich into a wealthy space, to confront the wealthy people where they live (or gala).

I don’t think it worked…

But Ocasio-Cortez is an elected official. She has tangible tools to work with, so a dress with a phrase on it (designed by a woman reportedly dating the son of billionaire Edgar Bronfman Jr., btw) is a bizarre choice…

If anything, Ocasio-Cortez’s dress featuring what has, at this point, become a “regurgitated Twitter talking point,” felt more naive, or even passe, than iconoclastic. It’s one thing to demand higher taxes on the wealthy; it’s another to believe that moving among the upper class will convince them to welcome a substantive tax cut. It’s also woefully inconsistent with the world outside of the Met, the one that has given Ocasio-Cortez her power…

But, alas, much of the political gestures that occur on a publicly, well-funded stage are empty. Like most other outfits with writing at the gala (yes, there were more), Ocasio-Cortez’s dress is a superficial demonstration meant to capture attention. In that way, it’s a win. But when it comes to manifesting tangible outcomes for constituents, I find it difficult to believe that a slew of wealthy celebs will do more than fawn over the congresswoman’s slogan-dress and, just by being near her, think that’s enough to signal that they are on board…

Not to worry, however. Slate writer Julia Craven is not against what AOC’s message was on the ass-end of her dress, or what her radical communist agenda is for America. It’s just that it has not yet been physically run-through America and Americans. Perhaps Sandy and her dressmaker should have better written “EAT THE RICH” in drippy red lettering font.

Twitchy: This new detail on AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ dress makes it even more absurd than you could ever imagine

MRC NB: After Learning She’s the ‘1 Percent,’ Whoopi Rants Against AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ Message

AOC’s always struck me as one of those dems that will eventually be found not to have paid taxes in the hundreds of thousands. Give her time.

Welcome to inFlATion:

As the limo-commie elites try to force you to understand/accept that they’re not “rich” rich, are you enjoying inflation, and the more than $3.5 trillion they insist must be spent by the government after collecting it from your paycheck? Oh, AOC and “The View” hens demand “TAX THE RICH” and then define and redefine who they say are ‘the rich’/”1%” … all the while refusing to understand basic realities of economics (even those who went to haughty Boston University and allegedly majored in economics). The “Multi Multi Millionaires and Billionaires” do not sweat your tax hikes and government-applied additional taxes on, say, oil companies. No, the companies and corporations simply hike their prices to consumers so we pay those taxes. And our stupid and arrogant Congress that seems to be cranking out trillions of dollars in spending bills every year is in the lead of driving our economy into the ground and destroying us. When trying to get people to understand that we are indeed in an inflation period this will give them a good clue of what that means…

Robert Frank @ CNBC: Top earning New Yorkers could face 61.2% combined tax rate under House plan, Californians may face 59% rate

  • The proposals include a 3% surtax on taxpayers earning more than $5 million a year. They would also raise the top marginal income tax rate to 39.6%.
  • The plans would preserve the 3.8% net investment income tax and extend it to certain pass-through companies.
  • The result is a top marginal federal income tax rate of 46.4%.
  • The House plan is still a proposal and could change. Yet the combined rates for New York City would be among the highest in nearly 40 years.

Which brings us to…

California’s recall Gov. Newsom election results:

Paul Steinhauser , Ian Bishop: The No’s have it – Gov. Gavin Newsom survives in California recall election: Gavin Newsom will remain as California governor after surviving in Tuesday’s recall election

Twitchy: Brian Stelter’s coverage of California recall election results is exactly what you’d expect

Early reports from voters actually going to the polls in certain districts had voters complaining that when they got there to vote they were told they had already voted, when they did not … and most were republicans. And this is on top of earlier reports ahead of election day of loads of mail-in ballots being found in places where they should not have been in the possession of people who either should have known better or had no business having them. So, there’s that.

Louis Casiano: Los Angeles-area poll worker wearing Trump gear removed from voting site: Voters went to polls across California Tuesday for the recall election. … Actually, the proper move. You work the election polls, you do NOT wear anything with political messages. You are supposed to remain to be seen as neutral.

“Based on his response and reports that other workers had previously counseled him on this, he was released and is no longer working at the vote center,” officials said.

The spokesman said poll workers are not allowed to wear political attire while on duty. Typically, election workers help set up the polls, assist voters when signing in and issue and account for ballots.

But then, it’s the ones who don’t wear their politics on their sleeve that have been creating the “irregularities” in our elections.

Look, it’s California … the bulk of the people there enjoy their misery of no water, burning brush, rolling mudslides, corrupt public schools, massive influxes of criminal illegal aliens straining public services, unbelievable drug-addled homelessness running businesses out of its big cities, and poop-piled streets and sidewalks. I did not really put much positive hope into waking today to hear the brilliant Larry Elder is now governor of California.

Brandon Gillespie: LA Times celebrates Gavin Newsom’s recall win over ‘extremist, intolerant’ Larry Elder: ‘A sigh of relief’: ‘Voters evidently saw through the smokescreen … about how Newsom was responsible for every bad thing that has happened in California’

If the intellectually honest and fed-up Californians haven’t already moved out of that floundering state, they were either manipulated with the ballots or perhaps did not show up at the polls. I was looking deeper into the voting mechanism results to get a gauge on what to expect in the 2022 midterms in little more than a year. The GOP and others are hanging their collective egg basket on the GOP taking back majorities in the Senate and House. We know the 2020 presidential election was stolen. It would be even far easier to steal midterm elections than the POTUS election.

There’s “there” there in the 2020 auditing in states doing so, and it is being dug-up everyday … but that ship has sailed. That’s not a Hillary “What difference, at this point, does it make??” dismissive from me. Just the opposite. This continued auditing of 2020’s election irregularities (a very huge understatement) is just as necessary as finding out the facts and truth as to the complete origins of the Wuhan COVID19 virus pandemic that killed millions, sickened millions more, and horrifically disrupted lives and economies here and around the globe (Screw you, Bill Gates). The 2020 election steal was tantamount to Ash letting the damn alien onto the Nostromo

We all knew Joe Biden was the brain termite-ridden Trojan horse of the leftist real shot-callers hiding within once he was let in the goddam door. And here we are.

Tuesday Newsfeed Quick Hits…

I am not surprised the DC elites are strongly resembling “The Hunger Games” Capitol City elites. They already consider the rest of us as expendable ‘District’ unwashed (on all levels) and we are working for and providing for them via our tax dollars and growing assault on our freedoms/liberty. Besides, let’s not forget what Lady GaGa wore to sing at Joe’s Inauguration. She fancied herself to be some leftist “Katniss ‘Mockingjay’ Everdeen”…

But I digress by eight months.

People are speculating how AOC paid for her ticket, or if some “rich” fan paid for it … or if the event throwers ‘comped’ her ticket. Either way, the frock she is tangle in is said to have cost somewhere around $30,000-35,000. I’ve not spent that much on clothing in over two years total…

DEVELOPING: The Coup from the Inside – UPDATED

Is this yet another DC Swamp “Shit’s about to hit the fan” that will not see a moment of Congressional investigating or penalty?…

CNN: Woodward/Costa book: Worried Trump could ‘go rogue,’ Milley took top-secret action to protect nuclear weapons

Ace: Coup: Milley Secretly Took Control of the Military, Despite Not Being Elected to Any Office; Totalitarian Press Cheers

Twitchy: ‘LITERALLY the enemy of the people’: CNN and WaPo race to paint Gen. Mark Milley as a hero for allegedly conspiring against Donald Trump

Robert Shibley @ Instapundit:

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AMERICA’S TOP GENERAL AND A CHINESE SPY? “Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel. ‘General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.’”

If true, this explains a lot about the decisions our “leaders” have been making lately.

John Sexton: The conversation Gen. Milley and Speaker Pelosi had about Trump launching a nuclear strike: ‘You know he’s crazy’

Back on January 8, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she had spoken with Gen. Mark Milley about limiting President Trump’s ability to launch nuclear weapons…

It was apparently after that call that Milley held a secret meeting at the Pentagon where he asked senior military officers to take an oath that no matter what Trump said, no military action could be taken without his involvement. He literally went around the room to make sure each person agreed. That’s actually not how the system works…

The authors of “Peril” write that Gen. Milley was “overseeing the mobilization of America’s national security state without the knowledge of the American people or the rest of the world.” They add that “‘some might contend that Milley had overstepped his authority.” It certainly sounds that way.

Of course I don’t want to see a nuclear strike against anyone but given that none was order or even contemplated it seems accurate to say Gen. Milley overstepped his bounds and quite literally took on aspects of the president’s authority as commander-in-chief that no one elected him to take on…

Is Gen. Milley allowed to have high-level conversations like this without informing the president? I’m just recalling that the FBI went after Gen. Flynn for a phone call with the Russian ambassador. The claim was they Flynn may have violated the Logan Act. Granted the Logan Act has never really been enforced, but does that same scrutiny apply here?

Christina Laila: REPORT: Milley Told China in Secret Phone Call He Would Give the CCP Advance Warning if US Was Ever Going to Attack

Katie Pavlich: Grenell Calls Report About Milley Helping the Chinese ‘Gossip and Innuendo’ … Well, it is a Bob Woodard book, and he’s spent these last five years reliving his Nixon days by trying to hang Pres.

“Maskerpiece Theater”: “Eternal COVID Hypocrisy Mind” of the ‘Sophisticated’ Vaxxed Class”

How’s that saying go … ‘A picture is worth a 1000 words’?

But never forget, they are the “sophisticated vaxxed”.

Vaxxed or unvaxxed, “We THE People” are now and always will be the “unwashed rabble” to them.

NYPost Ed. Board: Dems’ shameless, pointless Ground Zero act: What pure, infuriating, blatant hypocrisy

At the 20th-anniversary memorial for 9/11, top Democratic politicians all wore masks for a photo op. Then, as soon as the television cameras were off, the masks came off. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Gov. Hochul are masked one minute, unmasked and talking the next. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has hers off.

President Biden even pulls his mask down to yell at someone. The idiocy.

Every one of these people is vaccinated. They don’t need to wear masks — that’s the point of vaccines. They know this is stupid. But they insist on doing this performative COVID-19 dance so that they can keep mask mandates nationwide in our stores, our theaters, our schools.

Liberal commentators and politicians don’t understand why so many distrust them…

How many times have you, masked and maybe even fully-vaxxed, had to answer that COVID era question, “Have you traveled outside the state?”, when now going through the whole ‘you may be an extinction event to humanity’ screenings? And we are badgered about the importance of wearing the almighty mask … and especially by this empty gumball-headed bloke visiting

1. NYC (9-11-21)

2. and then out to California to campaign for Newsom in the recall election (9-13-21)

3. not to mention his consistent shortened DC work weeks to head back to Delaware (9-6-21) for long weekends.

(HT: My Facebook friend and artist Bosch Fawstin)

Emma Colton: BIG GOVERNMENT BACKLASH: Protests against mandatory vaccinations erupt in New York City, with some chanting against Biden – New York teachers protest vaccine mandates, march across Brooklyn Bridge. Retired and current teachers were also seen protesting vaccine mandates in Foley Square.

The fact that these are teachers, doubtless part of a teachers union that is pushing for mask and vax mandates for the children they allegedly teach, is a bit priceless. Why? Well, this report came out just this past July…

Jim Geraghty @ NRO: After Seven Months, 40 Percent of New York City Educators Aren’t Vaccinated

And so, what are we to take from this current protest against old Joe Biden’s vax mandate of a vast swath of Americans … or else? For starters, the teachers and their unions probably believe in having a choice and now are outraged that is being taken away from them … “My body my choice”, you know?

I saw Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, a virologist … a SCIENTIST … who admits to having voted for Biden, but now fully regrets that vote, especially after Biden’s dictatorial address to the American people laying out his tyrannical mandates on the lot of us. These are two key points Dr. Hooman made…

Yes, Biden’s rhetoric is intentionally meant to pit vaxxed Americans against unvaxxed Americans. Tucker Carlson even pointed this out a few days ago. This is definitely being done to pit one group against another group, in fact have that vaxxed group view the unvaxxed group as a deadly danger to everyone. To make the unvaxxed into ‘the enemy within’ … with an agenda of perhaps publicly ‘quarantining’ the unvaxxed by refusing service/employment/travel/etc. Don’t think it can happen? Have you seen the news coming out of Australia these last couple of months?

This scientific fact is the primary one of a handful of very important facts not being addressed at all by Biden and all the other Branch COVIDIANS. Who ever heard of vaccinating somebody who had an illness and already is carrying more and mo`better antibodies naturally against said virus? And that whole new “boosters” threat is not endorsed by our own FDA or the WHO. It is a totally political overreach attempt by this administration.

VIDEO: Immunologist regrets voting for Biden after president’s ‘draconian’ vaccine mandate: Dr. Hooman Noorchashm argues Americans who have already had COVID and are naturally immune should not be forced to be vaccinated.

Jessica Chasmar: Congress exempt from Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate: Vaccine mandate for federal workers applies only to executive branch of government

President Biden’s executive order mandating COVID-19 vaccines among all federal workers does not apply to members of Congress, the federal court system or their staffers.

Biden’s order Thursday mandating COVID-19 vaccinations among federal workers and contractors drops the option of regular testing and allows only some religious and disability exemptions. The order applies only to employees of the executive branch and does not apply to the legislative or judicial branches of government, the White House confirmed to Fox News…

On Aug. 3, a group of House Democrats sent a letter to the Attending Physician of Congress, Dr. Brian Monahan, asking him to mandate vaccines for members of Congress and their staff or to require twice-weekly COVID-19 testing. It is not clear how many members of the House and Senate remain unvaccinated, but the number is estimated to be very low…

We are told the POTUS cannot ‘mandate’ anything, especially like this, on Congress … Constitutionally. But neither can he do it to Americans … Constitutionally.

VIDEO: Tucker blasts Biden’s ‘irrational demands’ on vaccine mandates

Tim Hains: Tucker Carlson: If The State Can Mandate Vaccines, Why Can’t They Sterilize Or Lobotomize You? … This is not ridiculous rhetoric. This is exactly what is happening right now with the COVID vaccine. But think back to what our government has done to Americans of one group or another over the last nearly two centuries. Oh, sure, that was then and this is now. Except that I see pro-mandate zealots insisting they can now do what they are doing because there is historic precedence for it. And watch the sci-fi dystopian movie “THX 1138”.

And don’t forget, Joe Biden who several years back praised China’s mandated ‘one-child’ law, is also one of the all-in Green New Deal supporters … and the true believers of GND also seek to reduce the surplus population in order to reduce emissions. Not the elitist levels of humanity. No, the unwashed.

After examining the electronic records for nearly 50,000 patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 at 100 Veterans Affairs hospitals across the United States between March 2020 and June 2021, researchers found that a significant number of the patients actually had mild or asymptomatic infections. Patients who required supplemental oxygen or registered a blood oxygen level below 94 were considered moderate to severe.

Until mid-January 2021, when the vaccine drive really gained steam and the Delta variant had yet to take hold, 36 percent of patients were considered mild or asymptomatic. But in the next six months, that figure jumped to 48 percent, while an ever greater proportion — 57 percent — of vaccinated patients, who make up a much smaller share of admissions to begin with, had less severe cases.

There are probably a few explanations behind the data, per The Atlantic. Many of the patients may have been admitted to the hospital for an unrelated illness and tested positive upon entrance. Others may have been treated as a preventative measure because of comorbities, and some may simply may have just needed quick, relatively easy treatments before leaving.

Actual study is here. None of this is to say the vaccine is useless, of course, but it’s definitely being oversold in this story…

In a previous post I pointed out the shortened staffs that hospitals are facing, for various reasons including this vaccine controversy, and the fact that these MSM types do not give context to how man actual COVID patients are in these ICUs and how many are ‘other’ patients. And so this x100…

Matt Margolis: Biden Isn’t Even Pretending His Vaccine Mandate Is About COVID. “The White House doesn’t care about protecting immigrants in this country from COVID. Heck, they don’t even care about Americans getting COVID from immigrants. We’ve known for months now that COVID-positive immigrants have been coming in through the border and then brought into the interior of the country by the Biden administration.”
