Screwed By Teachers’ Unions

Seriously, at what point do we finally hold teachers’ unions accountable for what they did? They are not exempt from the damages to our society — now or in the future.

But it is strange that any sort of real accountability seems to be fleeting these days, especially from the powerful. All you have to do is declare yourself (or organization) a voting bloc and you receive protected status against all accountability.

Teachers’ unions are no friends of America. They siphon the power away from the people, rendering the rest of us serfs and slaves to the political power.

 

It has finally come out that Randi Weingarten, president of American Federation of Teachers, directly lobbied the CDC to keep schools closed. And now we know that CDC listened to them and actually used their own words in its guidance.

When do unions get to set school policy? When do they get to set national health policy? It doesn’t matter when they did it. It was wrong and our government cannot be used as a long arm for teachers’ unions over the safety and welfare of our children or public.

 

Powerful teachers union influenced CDC on school reopenings, emails show

NY Post

The American Federation of Teachers lobbied the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on, and even suggested language for, the federal agency’s school-reopening guidance released in February.

The powerful teachers union’s full-court press preceded the federal agency putting the brakes on a full re-opening of in-person classrooms, emails between top CDC, AFT and White House officials show.

The emails were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative watchdog group Americans for Public Trust and provided to The Post.

The documents show a flurry of activity between CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, her top advisors and union officials — with Biden brass being looped in at the White House — in the days before the highly-anticipated Feb. 12 announcement on school-reopening guidelines.

“Thank you again for Friday’s rich discussion about forthcoming CDC guidance and for your openness to the suggestions made by our president, Randi Weingarten, and the AFT,” wrote AFT senior director for health issues Kelly Trautner in a Feb 1 email — which described the union as the CDC’s “thought partner.”

“We were able to review a copy of the draft guidance document over the weekend and were able to provide some initial feedback to several staff this morning about possible ways to strengthen the document,” Trautner continued. “… We believe our experiences on the ground can inform and enrich thinking around what is practicable and prudent in future guidance documents.”

/…  The AFT also demanded special remote work concessions for teachers “who have documented high-risk conditions or who are at increased risk for … COVID-19,” and that similar arrangements should extend to “staff who have a household member” with similar risks. A lengthy provision for that made it into the text of the final guidance.

Who in the hell is running this country? I think we know. Time for some serious accountability. The Biden administration claims this is leading by science.  I know, let the Mexican cartels run our border and immigration policy, too. Right, they already are.  

Swamp Science

The Looming Lunacy

It is only the third week in January and already the Loons are out in force. They seem to be everywhere you turn. Of course I’m not talking about some graceful bird, I’m talking about the radical Left. Maybe it is a type of mating thing they are doing. And wow, are they a noisy bunch. (if you have ever been around actual loons, you know what I mean)

I know you have heard it all before and so have I. The crazy Democrats are up to their tricks and ruining society, as we know it. But it’s true and they are. Only their antics aren’t seasonal or dependent on weather, it is all the time. And we are not fighting nature; we are fighting a non-stop force of evil that could easily be labeled reverse evolution.

Now if they had some knowledge or expertise in something, then I could understand there might be something worth listening to. But it is a radical hodgepodge of wacky theories and plans they roll out almost limitlessly. Time and space do not permit me to list them. From where do all these ideas spawn? Well, that is the question.

There is socialism, Marxism, cultural Marxism, Maoist thought saturating it. They don’t care where the ideas come from, or where they lead. No matter how many times those ideas have failed or wrought misery on people, none of that matters.

But I will say one thing for them. Now they have got an almost perfect person in an El Presidente to lead their movement. He hasn’t got the stamina or will to stand up to them. (if he wanted to) He is only the preferred vessel through which they can pursue their wildest fantasies. And a perfect one it is.

He is prone and committed to doing anything they desire. Nothing is off the table. Frankly, to call this bunch “woke” is an insult to reality. They flutter on emotions and instinctively respond accordingly. They aren’t the smartest bunch. I don’t know if we have ever seen the likes of this behavior before. And yet they call us flat-earthers.

The question should be: can we as a society afford to live with such a dominant if domineering species? How long could such cohabitation go on? Ironically that is the very kind of projection you hear from them on the Left. They wonder aloud how they can live in society with us? Is that a sign that there is something seriously flawed here? I think so.

You could compare the “woke” Left to ISIS or the Taliban in their culture of disgust for humanity. You would be close, But instead, they project that incompatible nature onto us. Remember they are the ones who don’t seem to care where all this leads or what effects we suffer from it. They don’t care. In fact, they use those harsh negative effects, of what they do, as a cudgel to lambaste us into compliance with their helter-skelter agenda. Abortion on demand is their leading answer to most of our problems. Just call it choice.

A simple question popped into my head as a valid response to all their rhetoric. So “you would endorse genocide and when should it start?” I think that is the only appropriate question left to ask them. It is, after all, the road they seem hell-bent on heading down. They are partially there already. Once they have convinced themselves of our inhumanity and the necessity of that solution, then it is only a matter of the logistics. They have already determined the path.

Biden’s Plan of Doom

Case in point, Joe Biden’s latest tweet:

We need to meet the threat of climate change with the urgency it demands — and seize the opportunity to build back better. Tune in as I introduce members of my climate team who will get it done.”

Well, there you go. I only hope Pennsylvania is paying attention now.

So which word offends you more….. opportunity or seize?

I think we need to meet the threat of Joe Biden!

Hypocrisy Takes 2020 By Storm

Back early in the year, I declared this year would be the year of hypocrisy. Well, that may not be that big of a prediction. But I didn’t know what was going to happen, it was simply based on the trajectory of politics at the time. You could read those posts here and here.

Remember we were having the impeachment over a phone call and quid pro-quo Joe was only a glimmer on the political stage. But he had a quid pro-quo with Ukraine and boasted about it. Since then, it has been worse than anything I could have thought.

Hypocrisy is everywhere, from the gov in California to the Speaker of the House, to the results of the 2020 election. So hypocrisy reigned supreme in everything. It seems a safe bet in most any year to call it a year of hypocrisy. In September, I revised the prediction to the year of multi-tasking. That is sort of self-explanatory. Indeed the people were doing more than one thing and juggling many things at once. That was true too.

But then hypocrisy busted through the finish line with ease. Of course this is all only my opinion – as they say those can vary. The sheer hypocrisy this year should be evident.

Impeachment of a president when they themselves should have been impeached. With everything we found out, there was no way to hide all they had done to Trump or to the people. But here they were only impeaching a president they claimed was never legitimate anyway. And actually it was Joe Biden who had done exactly what they were accusing Trump of doing. Then came Nancy Pelosi devoutly tearing up the President’s speech in front of us. Supposedly denying his legitimacy. Though her credibility was shredded.

Yet at the very time they were doing this, a pandemic from hell was bearing down on the US. They poo-poohed it as a real threat. Pelosi and Health Dept officials in NY both took to public pronouncements that COVID was defacto DOA – dead on arrival — in the US.

Months later they switched rhetoric to the president was not doing enough to prevent it. Then they started the gloomy prognosticating on how bad it was, while blaming Trump. Incidentally, has anyone seen another country blame its leader for COVID_19?

There was also the Cuomo version of events. First he denied COVID was a problem outside a normal flu. Then he blamed Trump for everything as he himself enacted orders to send COVID into nursing homes. He went from blaming Trump to then arguing that the virus did not come from China, but from Europe. Anyone watching him give his daily briefings was curious what new thing he would say each day to contradict himself.

Cuomo refused to stop travel from NYC at the hiight of the virus, yet later on would swing to blocking people from coming to NYC. He demanded new hospitals be erected, including putting a ship in the harbor, but he never used them.

And of course one has to add that meanwhile dealing with the pandemic, Cuomo was writing a book on how well he dealt with the pandemic.But it should be called the definitive book of hypocrisy, by the defining hypocrite of the era.

On and on it has gone. Yes, hypocrisy is putting in a very strong finish to the year.

Before, election Democrats railed about post offices being a den of conspiracy against a fair election. They singled out the Post Master General. After election, what problems?
Democrats had scrutinized Dominion and its software as a threat to democracy. Now, what problem? Democrats said the only hope to end the virus was a vaccine. Now, on approval, it is not the be all end all. Maybe it should wait for Biden?

Then of course Democrat lawmakers issued their lockdown procedures, sometimes just before going out to violate the orders themselves. Then they feigned apologies that they are sorry. But are they? Austin’s mayor broadcasted lockdown orders from Mexico.

First they told us masks were unnecessary and even put you at risk. Now they demand you wear them. Vaccine was the bomb until it came out, then Democrats said they would refuse to take accept it because it came out under Trump.

They kept big box stores open but smaller businesses had to be shut or they pulled their business license. But they decided liquor stores could be essential businesses.

What they deemed essential or non-essential was entirely subjective. Then they said science was king, but none of the economy shutdown was science at all.

And let us not forget the Hydroxychloroquine fiasco. Usage of it was blocked. They said it could kill you. They managed to ban a cheap drug with promising, effective results. Then they called us conspiracy theorists.

The FDA said (6/15/20): “the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use.”

Of course one of the worst things was politicizing a pandemic that does not respect any politics. They told us the rights to protest were paramount over any lockdown restrictions. Millions of people marched in the streets while churches had to remain closed on orders from the state. Violators were heavily fined, even jailed. Meanwhile they set ‘no bail’ legislation for criminals, essentially turning them loose after arrest.

Violence even superseded any health restrictions. “Mostly peaceful protests” became a euphemism for riots, violence and looting for the year.

Police shootings or attacks were frequently ignored as individual incidents of police misconduct were panned across the country, 24/7. Abc said “police officers killed surge 28%” in 2020, “and some point to civil unrest and those looking to exploit it.”

And the answer for this phenomena and numbers of police attacks? Wait for it… abolish or defund the police. Some areas acted on these hypocritical demands to cut police funding.

But later on, Democrats claimed they did not want to defund the police as we said they did. They invented the term re-imagine police. They claimed Dems did not call for “defunding.”

Democrats said Donald J Trump was out to steal the election, then they proceeded to have the worst fraud-plagued election in history. All justified of course. Then they called it the smoothest election in modern history.

They even argued that fraud may have been present but it was not enough to change the results of the election. Excuse me, but that was the entire purpose for it. Enough?

Democrats wanted to employ the 25th amendment against Trump claiming he was not psychologically fit or capable of holding the office. But then along came Joe Biden, who they claimed would be the most competent president for America, excellently qualified.

Indeed Democrats spent four long, miserable years claiming Trump was illegitimate and that the election was rigged in favor of Trump. Then they proceeded to create the most rigged election in history from rule changes right through Election Day. But nothing to see here, people, it was a superb election. We were called conspiracists.

So now the candidate who did not campaign, staying in his basement bunker, happened to get more votes than any presidential candidate in history? 13 million more than Obama.

They claimed Antifa was not a threat, and Joe Biden declared it an idea – not an actual organization of terror and crime. So Pelosi said Trump and Republicans were “enemies of the state”  by scaring people from voting. Then the press ignored her outrageous claim  after they complained that Trump labeled press/media enemies of the people.

Let’s remember that Pelosi declined a 1.8 trillion dollar aid package offer. Then she accepted a 900 billion dollar package calling it a success because now we have a new president. She told a reporter that the earlier negotiation was not a failure, on her part, but is why they got here. So getting a new president was her real objective? Pelosi got a professional blowout in a closed salon, then said she was set up by the owner.

Yes, after years of not accepting Hillary’s failure, media demands Trump accept the fraud election. Then they have the nerve to say that no time in history was there ever a president and election labeled illegitimate. (David Gergen fielded that whopper on CNN)

But just add another that Democrats wanted the entire economy to be shut down by executive action. Then they claimed that Trump ruined the economy. They demanded presidential action, then they claimed states rights. But later they claimed Trump failed to issue a federal mandate. Cuomo threatened a federal mandate would incite civil war.

There was so much more that could be said about this stellar year of hypocrisy.

Restrictions Red Line

Once again, it is just Policy in Motion(PIA) from the Left coming at us. Listen to the sound of arrogance from the “it’s science” crowd. A lot of “I don’t get it.”

But Rick Santelli steps up in the spotlight again. And the Left hates that. (Forbes)

“Santelli and Sorkin spar over COVID restrictions”

Is it Tea Party time? It’s always our health and science they are concerned with?

What science declared only big-box stores are safe and exempt?

Faulty DNA

Some people may be surprised to know I am a highly-accredited academic. For instance, I believe I found the exact DNA string that leads to the destruction of the country.

So preemptively interrupting or blocking that sequence would prevent our disintegration before it’s too late. Isn’t science wonderful? If only we listened to it… ie. political science.

This discovery took over 30 years of experimentation, yet it’s not too late to save America.

I will use elections as an example for the sake of illustration. Applied science, you know. The premise of the problem is: the loser gets to define the agenda and results of the election. I’ll call this ‘loser rules’ principle. It only happens on one side of the DNA pool.

You may laugh but this has become a growing perception for some time now. I’ve been studying it. It’s widely accepted too. And that is the problem. The more this malicious code grows, the faster the disintegration process happens.

Allow me to map this out. Don’t worry if you did not understand it at first. It took me a while to track this mutation down.

So just say the radical left loses an election. Those who lose get to determine the agenda, or sizable chunk of it, no matter who won. Thereby corrupting other DNA in the sequence.

That process, over time, leads to disintegration and eventual destruction.

And this malicious sequence is being applied right before our eyes and yet we do not or cannot seem to stop it in its tracks. The worst part of it is the very people(members) in that DNA pool continue to mislabel this as a great democratic process, and the product of it as a solution to our problems. Still don’t quite see it yet?

Say loser X has all these radical plans and ideas from who knows where, whatever source. Though it did lose. At the end of the election, Loser X says its ideas were so popular among members that those ideas must be incorporated into the mainstream.

If winner refuses, Loser X will unleash its radical dogs in the base to attack. So the winner is compelled to oblige X. Winner W has no choice except appease Loser X by incorporating the ideas and radicals to implement them into the mix. Let’s call that mixture “S”.

Mixture S now thinks that process is just the cost of doing any business or pushing a major agenda forward. So radical ideas and people are employed that contaminate the agenda – and whatever influence mixture S has on the public at large.

This assures the most radical ideas always come to the surface to be incorporated.

Now if this is repeated over and over, it leads to getting the worst and most radical ideas into the mainstream and into the public. In repetition, the result is a disintegrating effect on the whole. Well, it could hardly be a good outcome.

So the host becomes more contaminated over time. Speed is the only variable.

Oh so you need some examples? No matter who wins, the loser claims the right to determine actions in the wider agenda. See, the Democrats lose in congress, they assert the right to determine what the body will do. Radicals are highly effective at influencing it.

Say Hillary Clinton loses. They claim she really didn’t and that they are now free to delegitimize the entire process, hence corrupting it. No matter what winner Trump does forward, they contaminate the entire process however they can. Thus affecting the outcome, or perceived outcome, of everything.

Another example is the minority rules principle. Wait for a national emergency then demand the body agenda implement the radical minority’s plans. So Rad-Loser offers winner no other choice or option. Incorporate radical plans or else.

The loser always determines the agenda, or in effect the minority determines the agenda.

The result of this process playing out, over and over, creates a scenario. This maliciously corrupt law or code demands the worst ideas be implemented at the sacrifice or exemption of good ones, So the end pool is corrupted downward. It is a beautifully destructive force.

The entire DNA pool has become so corrupted that many of its fervent members now see this process as ‘normal’ and the resulting disintegration as ‘progress.’

Politics Of A Pandemic

Everyone now knows how bad an epidemic is. As if we needed a lesson on that. Indeed, it is a powerful thing. But how powerful?

Yes, a pandemic is powerful, not only how it can kill people.

But we have learned that a pandemic was powerful enough to determine who should be President of the United States and our way of life. Who knew a pandemic could do that?

Well, it even determined how we would run elections. It determined who were the winners and losers in the economy. It determined how we should educate our kids or work.

It is a very omnipresent thing, this Chinese virus from hell.

Why stop there? It should also determine world economic affairs. It should determine our global warming agenda. It can create a Great Reset. It can determine our economic system, our energy source. It should also determine what governments can do to citizens under the guise of an emergency.

“There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.” — [from Great Reset forum site]

It is no joke. They can do all this, or anything they want, under the auspices of a “pandemic.” That means they have found a way to politicize even a pandemic. And then they easily find ways to weaponize it against every faucet of our society.

Now no one likes a pandemic. No one hopes for one. But few could have expected the ways in which it could be used against the people as a weapon. If you had serious issues about the expanse of government power before, then this tool put your fears on another level.

For instance, we also learned this pandemic could determine rules and authorize freedoms of speech, religion or assembly. And it could be weaponized to limit those rights, too.

So if you did not see a pandemic as a national security issue as well, you were in for a surprise. It was not a matter of determining rights or banning them, it was essentially a manner of control.

This China virus gave ruling elites carte blanche to do what they will to people. Connect it to global economic policies and you have a cocktail from hell.

A forum in June with world leaders inspired them all to use the pandemic to push as much globalism, climate change policy as they could. Think of the pandemic as an opportunity to install their agenda. You might call it the new green deal-maker.

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” – The Hill

If that were not bad enough, then any cure or vaccine easily presents another good opportunity to control people. Or, as Zeke Emanuel sees it, we need to determine who does or doesn’t get the vaccine. Of course age limits need to determine that. And a magical 75-year life span would be a good cutoff for the use of valuable resources like medicine.

Everyone see where all this is going? Turns out a pandemic can be a very useful thing, even a tool. The virus as a huge political opportunity Leftist who politicized and weaponized the entire apparatus extort it so easily that I bet many kids will not realize the way in which the pandemic was used like a tool to control or influence their lives.

But now the Left has done something even more amazing than grant all this authority to it, it has personified a pandemic into a rogue dictator that gets to control your life. It is no longer a thing. The Democrats, however, can hide their deeds behind it which keeps them unaccountable for the actions. Who knew a pandemic was that powerful?

Think about that Great Reset button next time Democrats say they are following science.

 

Exhibit B: Justin Trueau at UN conference September 29, 2020

“This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a Reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.” — J. Trudeau, reported by Climate Depot

Settled Science

What is and isn’t settled science? Let’s dispel a couple of these popular faux arguments.

The science debate.

Take the left’s view: that there is no real debate here; that science rules; that it should be the basis of all actions. So science literally rules

Now that translates to science should dictate all decisions. For instance, on COVID or climate change, or anything else for that matter. It is the definitive answer to problems.

The logical side: no one is denying that science exists and it is useful. (that’s the defensive posture) When making decisions on society, many of those are out of the arena of science. Leaders and officials are making decisions on lockdowns and mandates on travel, or on what you can do and buy. What food you eat or car you drive. Is that science?

To say, like Joe Biden, that science declares you should shut down the economy, which is not an area of science, removes decisions from those tasked to make them. Plus “science”- whatever all it includes – is not accountable for those decisions and their consequences.

And people are elected or appointed to make those decisions on all the necessary variables. If it were true that science dictates, then there is no purpose for government or those officials but to enforce a science edict. Simply have science dictate decisions.

One of the first rules on any topic where science is injected is to ask if it is actually part of science or how much of it is? That tells you a lot. Most of it is far outside its realm.

For instance, much of this societal, cultural stuff we are lectured about is not an exact area of science. But that is where leftist social engineers come in. So their social engineers – presumably all leftists – will interpret their science into our society and lives, or into the code we must live by. When anyone resists their code, they hold up the science card. (just like they play the race card) But we are not governed by a board of science.

And if officials are going to issue these edicts, then they better be able to explain them and be accountable for them, because science won’t be. So it is not just science making these decisions, let’s be clear. Don’t hide behind science as if it were unquestionable.

The objective, the left tells us, is and always should be to control the pandemic. Except that controlling the pandemic equates to controlling people. That theorem means simply, you control the people and you control the pandemic.

Often when they tell us science is settled, they really mean their interpretation of science is settled. And it usually is not all science. Unless you mean political science.

Politics Of A Pandemic

Some people refuse to believe this pandemic is anything more than a flu hoax, oversold and over-hyped. The reasons are assorted but they don’t seem to be changing their minds.

I made the decision early on as to whether to follow the conspiracy side or accept it as a real pandemic threat. I chose the pandemic side and haven’t questioned that decision. Maybe the same can be said for the conspiracists.

Not that I’m anti-conspiracy, I just like to choose them wisely. This one didn’t fit for me unless I missed some mountain of evidence. We have plenty of valid ones out there, as far as I’m concerned. But no matter which side, people seem dug in on what they think of it.

However, I have seen enough damage now. There is a list of things affected by the Asian Contagion, China virus. No, they don’t add proof to the cause but they do say something about the severity of it. Just to mention a few things we know though the list is growing:

    • Food shortages on everyday items
    • Masks in public everywhere.
    • Economic damage
    • Small businesses get slammed with costs as it continues.
    • Job losses, or eliminations.
    • Enormous costs in deficit, continuing
    • Shortages of medical supplies
    • Regular procedures at hospitals suspended.
    • No family gatherings (a plus to some people)
    • No church
    • No schools
    • Stay at home – isolation
    • (The list goes on, evolving almost weekly.)

Now the problem is the hoax-conspiracists can just as easily say it is all further proof of the successful damage of the hoax. They can weave it right into their plot. Then they will blame the hoax itself, and its creators, for these ongoing sufferings we see and feel. They see the hoax as the cause of it all. The effects are suppose to validate the hoax theory.

I take the different approach. I just add it as more damage that this virus from China has caused. It is a mounting tally. And I see China as the cause of it all. So all the damages are collateral effects of the pandemic. You can see those effects range from medical to economic, to the seemingly unrelated normal things.

Never the less, in my mind anyway, all of it traces back to China by way of the pandemic. So you cannot buy your Chunky Soup at the grocery store because of the pandemic. I’m all for understanding temporary shortages for due reasons but these droughts seem to be dragging out for extended periods, making you wonder when things will be the same again?

Has this crossed the line now to the point when things migjht never be the same, at least for some time to come? I didn’t think so at first but now I am not so sure. Maybe this has pushed these negatives so far that it cannot return to normal? Again, for that I hold China responsible for it all.

Even the mask wearing, which sort of irritates me, seems more a part of the foreseeable future than I hoped. Are we living in a period of unprecedented change? I do hope not because there are plenty of people who would like to take advantage of that. Far worse than even gouging and hoarding.

And those sorts of people lead me right back to the subject of this piece, politics and opportunist politicians. Sure there are others too, but they functionally follow the same formula. That is to extort the problem for all it’s worth, for personal and political gain – often the same thing. But make no mistake, it has been politicized, used and extorted.

Coronavirus Sequel

I’m just going to post the link to this article. You have to go there to read it yourself. However, it is very interesting and not stupid. The article answers the question.

A mutant coronavirus more contagious?

May 05– “Scientists have identified a new strain of the coronavirus that has become dominant worldwide and appears to be more contagious than the versions that spread in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study led by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory.” /…Read

Chilling and disturbing.

Personifying COVID-19

If there were ever a virus that could lend itself to personification, then it would be COVID-19. Normally a virus is a virus, a disease a disease, as the plague was the plague. But in this one there seemed to be differences. I only say seemed; it might be debatable.

Maybe that is because we know more about it now and because of the public awareness of the virus itself, whatever the reason. Like hurricanes and storms can be personalized in a similar way because people feel personally threatened or affected by them. This time it is even more than that. And it seemed to grow more personal.

(pic credit: CDC.gov)

It became a personal thing to many people by also affecting them in a personal way. Their job, occupation, family, businesses were all collateral damages. Even religious practices and schools were not immune. Their way of life was in its path. The economy was threatened.

It supposedly attacked, because all the information has shifted since it first appeared, a certain profile of people. Those were older compromised people with co-morbidities. Almost as if it had an appetite. And it consumed victims like it had artificial intelligence. (I’m just saying)

Particularly bad was the extreme infectiousness. It was found especially contagious from people who were asymptomatic. So it could be spread to anyone, but certain people were more profoundly affected. Some were killed. Some bodies could not handle it. It seemed to screw with the immune system in ways we couldn’t quite understand. We is the public.

Symptoms were another irregularity. At the beginning we thought the symptoms were basic and then, as time went on, we heard of other symptoms not known originally. Then we heard of things like leg cramps and sense of smell disappearing. Now we hear about strokes and blood clots in younger people. Like many things, original reports are often wrong or erroneous. This was no different. We weren’t prepared for misinformation either, but we should have been. We’re savvy people in America.

The death rate was considered high at first, maybe even approaching 2%. Of course, no matter what the death rate was, no one would want to be one in that percentile. Still, the risk was considered slight by any measure. In fact that seemed to be one of the few positives – even if you did contract it, your chances were fairly good for a benign outcome. You just had to weather the so-called storm. Many assumptions at the beginning turned out to be wrong. We should have been prepared for that too. First news is often wronng.

It also came from a communist country who would have every reason to try to deceive people about it. They were no friends in the cause. They actually were part of the cause. And they worked to interfere with our response to it. We might have expected that too.

One could make the case, if one wanted to, that it seemed as if Coronavirus had a mind of its own. Once it escaped homeland China it lived large. Sure, the Communist Chinese knew this was happening but they enabled it. They turned it loose. But then this virus seemed to have an agenda of its own to affect the entire world, as fast as it could. It showed up in places over the globe. And of course top destinations would be on it’s itinerary.

It did not affect all people the same, which frustrated us in our isolation. Some escaped death by the skin of their teeth. Others, as well as some medical professionals, were not so lucky. I also heard of young, middle-aged people taken down with none of the co-morbidities. There is no sense of equities.

I’m not so sure we should not be personalizing COVID-19. It does not have to imply it is a biologically created weapon. But it could still operate as one. It did not even need the extra help it got from China to do its damage. Not to mention the aid and assist it got from some elected politicos too busy with their axes to grind against a sitting president to recognize the danger of the slithering serpent.

No, I’m not done exploring this idea, or whatever it means. Though I do have to stop at least for now. I am convinced it is not a bad way to look at it. We recently learned the virus does not like UV or sunlight. But it does like subways. I’ll leave it there.

I Wonder….

I am featuring a new segment on this provocative blog. It will be called “I wonder.” I may probe some of the strangest questions of current politics and culture.

In this first installment, I wonder… how Democrats can run on a platform against high healthcare costs? When Dems have run on healthcare over ten years, yet these costs are the direct result of their policies and actions.

Healthcare premiums and deductibles of have exploded, exponentially, while Dems claimed they were fixing healthcare. And how’d that work out for you?

Now Dems want people to support and vote for them based on those high healthcare costs.

I’m still wondering… and they are still wandering.

Climate Of Religion

What we have seen is the overt politicization, weaponization and religiosity of the climate, or climate change, and the propagandizing of it. It should be no surprise that they politicized it to the max. That’s why so many people are outraged. But that was only the first step. Then they weaponize the climate, against the people of course.

Then they use the climate as the apocalyptic fear-mongering vehicle

When even the former head of Green Peace has to go on Hannity and call out the apocalypse hysteria of the Left, we are in a strange place.

He actually said that if we do the fossil full elimination they are calling for, it would decimate civilization. Or maybe that is what they want? He also said that our coal fired consumption is about 90% cleaner than it was decades ago.

But he said that today we still rely on fossil fuels for 80% of our electricity. Apparently they didn’t realize that when they tell us they want to switch to electric cars. Imagine the reaction when they all plug them in.

But they are telling us something with these Big Green Plans. They show us it is a religious movement now, full stop. The former Green Peace guy said what they are doing in incorporating kids into their message is equal to child abuse. Well, it should be criminal. The same person also said that the direction they are taking it, including using children (and emotions), is just to push their radical socialism or social justice platform.

I guess they don’t realize that we see exactly what they are doing. They turned it into a political issue, weaponized it, then made it a religious one. And they now feel comfortable turning that weapon on anyone they need to propel their political agenda.

Wouldn’t you think using and scaring kids would be a bit over the top? Not for them. In fact, it is right up their alley. The same way they have been using kids in their socialized healthcare schemes. Just roll out the children. What’s next, having children lobby and protest for late term abortion rights? Don’t be surprised.

As I said some time ago: is there anything too radical and extreme even for Democrats? Not anymore. Remember Claire McKaskill let the dirty secret out of the bag in the campaign, before she lost? She said those are the crazy Democrats and she was not one of them. But now that the election is over and AOC has taken over the party, with an assist from Bernie Sanders, it looks like they are telling us loud and clear that really all Dems are crazy Democrats. That’s the way it works.

We used to hear them say on the campaign that they would not be a lockstep vote, and they were independent minded, and that they would represent the people. Remember Trump called them out at rallies and said if they get in, they will only be Pelosi puppets and vote in lockstep. Rubber stamps. Again, Trump was completely right. But it only took a few short weeks for that to happen and prove it.

Bottom line is these people are not at all about preventing a catastrophe, they are all about creating one. And the faster they get there, the better. Have kids believe that the world is going to incinerate. We used to hide under desks in schools, remember. Now just tell them it is over. So we might as well blow through a hundred trillion dollars trying because it’s a lost cause unless. Unless they can save planet earth from destruction. Well, I wonder what kept planet earth from destruction years ago before they came along? They sort of sound like a revised version of Heaven’s Gate people over the Hale-Bopp Comet.

It does show us something. That the climate change and socialists, besides getting in bed with each other, are reading from the same script. It is all about belief. It is only based on that. Throw in a few anecdotes and current events to make your case, then round up the kids and give them their lines. Send them out to the public and watch people get sucked in. Or so goes the plan. However, what it really is based on is belief.(echoes of Obama) Have enough people to believe it and you can even summon a Hale-Bopp comet to come and rescue them. And they are betting all their marbles, and our money, on it.

Facebook Faceplant Hearing

Notable points from Facebook, Zuckerberg hearings.

House notes on Energy and Commerce hearing
2012 Election

“In 2012, the Obama for America presidential election campaign worked with the company to allow users to sign into the campaign’s website via Facebook. According to accounts at the time, the Facebook application gave the campaign access to both those that signed into the campaign, as well as the “Friends” of such persons — “the more than 1 million Obama backers who signed up for the app gave the campaign permission to look at their Facebook friend lists.” This gave the Obama for America campaign access to “hidden voters” for which they otherwise lacked contact information.

Carol Davidsen, Director of Integration of Media Analytics for Obama for America, via Twitter, stated that “Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.” This in turn allegedly allowed one political party to download and retain individual user data which was not provided to other political organizations. “

It worked well for Obama. The problem comes when someone else from the conservative side finds a way to use Facebook. Zuckerberg was also asked but completely ignorant about details of past privacy lawsuits. This proved he was just an empty suit. 

Sham, most Republicans were simply not up on the technology or prepared. Pandering was on full display. Zuckerberg also could not address the data collection of non-FB users.

Overall, he kept returning to his canard that Facebook does not sell data. I think that line might haunt them. But marketing people’s personal data to companies at a profit may as well be. Their commodity is your personal information. If I market cars in a lot I can say I am technically not selling them, but I am getting paid for doing it.

Congressmen and Senators were more interested in looking to get broadband access for their districts and constituents, which Zucky was happy to say he would work toward.

On the censoring part, Zuckerberg had no answers. He claimed they would have over 20 thousand content screeners (FB conflates with security) by the year’s end. And he said they were working on creating more AI (artificial intelligence) tools to do censoring.

So the censoring will go on, and will be automated. He also referred to users flagging or reporting offensive content. So is it a mob sourced censorship platform too? To posture, pander, promote FB should not have been the objective for Congress.

Then, Mr. Zuckerberg, are you willing to help us with making the regulations etc.? Oh, he would be more than happy to have his team assist. Sure, sounds like a plan. 🙂

PS: Georgia Republican Rep Buddy Carter said he doesn’t want to legislate morality. Great. But Zuckerberg and his Facebook fascists do — and are hard at work trying.

Old theories on Dems validated

This requires some contextual background. Conservatives have tossed out various psycho-theories about the left and what drives Democrats. I have considered them dysfunctionally deficient, making reasoning impossible. You could have a formal debate with numbers and statistics but it would mean nothing. They can ignore inconvenient facts as easily as they ignore the results. It does frustrate people.

Take a major issue as an example. The wall and border security, not even going into the entire problems. If you sat down to reason or convince Democrats, it wouldn’t work. So if the left has such aversion to a wall, numbers or facts don’t work. What is it, you might wonder why? If it were economics, you could make that argument. But you would be wasting your time and sincere efforts.

That is because it is philosophical to them. They are philosophically opposed, no matter what the facts or what you say. They will invent excuses, just make things up, call you names, or twist whatever you say. You see how vehemently they are opposed. It also includes ideology and emotion. Don’t expect them to care about the consequences of not building a wall either. They don’t care. They can’t be forced to care about something they have already made up their mind is not important.

They only care about other things much more: like sanctuary cities, illegal immigrants, amnesty, stopping ICE from doing its job, protecting illegals. Almost anything else. They’ll give you the state’s rights argument. They don’t care about that. They’ve been fighting against state’s rights for years and opposing the will of the people.

So how else can one explain it? What is behind it. If it is a mental deficiency, what is it? Well, I found something interesting to help explain it. Just consider the source.

Sooner or later you will come across this story, if you haven’t already — because it is being shoveled out especially by media. I took the time to read it. I will link the article, not as a personal endorsement, but this was my takeaway nugget from it.

“I wanted to know why the Lib Dems sucked at winning elections when they used to run the country up to the end of the 19th century,” Wylie explains. “And I began looking at consumer and demographic data to see what united Lib Dem voters, because apart from bits of Wales and the Shetlands it’s weird, disparate regions. And what I found is there were no strong correlations. There was no signal in the data.

“And then I came across a paper about how personality traits could be a precursor to political behaviour, and it suddenly made sense. Liberalism is correlated with high openness and low conscientiousness, and when you think of Lib Dems they’re absent-minded professors and hippies. They’re the early adopters… they’re highly open to new ideas. And it just clicked all of a sudden.”

Now some of this data is from varied places. But it still would apply across borders.

This high openness, to belief and apparently progressive ideas would help explain it. Couple that with low conscientiousness and you have a volatile cocktail. A vehicle. I knew they were conscience-challenged but there it is. Do you think they would care about turning on a dime, contradicting themselves or hypocrisy? No, all that only matters if they care.

That’s why they beat conservatives over the head about double standards of hypocrisy. That works. To the left there are no double standards, only the now standard. Past is not prologue, it becomes irrelevant. All the matters is the immediate situation and need — whatever it takes.

Now that makes sense too, because they don’t care about the future, really, or the consequences of what they do. And it’s also why they continually apply the same failing policies. So there is a plausible, real validation that is measurable.

Explains a lot about Obama, Clintons and the DNC. So if you have people open to a radical agenda and ideas, with low conscientious objections, you have a pretty influential bunch that can be led (molded). Throw some white guilt on that bonfire. And all this, linked to the established plantation and identity politics, is an incorrigible force with only one uniting thing, ideology and control. Add in the anti-God agenda and what do you expect?

Earth Prophecy from Hawking

Stephen Hawking says the Earth will be a fireball by 2600

By Margi Murphy, original – The Sun

Mastermind Stephen Hawking has warned that the human race will perish on Earth after we turn it into a sizzling fireball in less than 600 years.

He declared that humans must “boldly go where no one has gone before” if we fancy continuing our species for another million years.

If we don’t, the world will become overcrowded and increased energy consumption will turn the planet into a ball of fire because of our soaring energy consumption as the population rises.

Making a video appearance at the Tencent WE Summit in Beijing on Sunday, Hawking appealed to investors to back his plans to travel to the closest star outside of our solar system, with the hope that a livable planet might be orbiting it. …/

So that’s all she rode. Unless they figure out the next star. And when Loyd’s of London figure that out and confirm it, everything will be set to end.

Lights Out

The dimwitted left has lost whatever small piece of its mind that may have remained. Now they attack General Kelly and the ‘Empty Barrel’ called that name racist.

It ain’t working! Ha, Planned Parenthood issued a statement that they stand with black women and the black community. There’s an endorsement of culture for you.

So former presidents(Stripes) are having a fundraiser at Texas A&M, excuding Trump. Well, bite my asparagus! That’s bad? Exactly why we elected him.

“Deep from the Heart: The One America Appeal” is part of an effort launched last month by former Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, all of whom are scheduled to attend the concert Saturday.

Their thousand points of light have gone dark. All more of a political appeal.

But their incessant, incestuous lectures continue against voters and we the people?

Planned Parenthood lets us know they are still in business: (from Planet Absurd)

‘Human Rights! Human Rights is the goal! Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Just in case there was any flicker of light left, PP makes sure to snuff it out.

Where, what “Matter”?

noun (Dictionary.com)
1. – the substance or substances of which any physical object consists or is composed: the matter of which the earth is made.
2. – physical or corporeal substance in general, whether solid, liquid, or gaseous, especially as distinguished from incorporeal substance, as spirit or mind, or from qualities, actions, and the like.
3. – something that occupies space.

4. -particular kind of substance: matter

5. -situation, state, affair, or business: trivial matter

6. -an amount or extent reckoned approximately: a matter of 10 miles.

7. – consequence for serious thought.

Wikipedia – “In the classical physics observed in everyday life, matter is any substance that has mass and takes up space; this includes atoms and anything made up of these, but not other energy phenomena or waves such as light or sound. More generally, however, in (modern) physics, matter is not a fundamental concept because a universal definition of it is elusive; for example, the elementary constituents of atoms may be point particles, each having no volume individually.”

Now that I have looked, it seems nowhere can I find that “matter” is a criminal investigation. Or maybe it is close to #5 or #7? Well, if Loretta Lynch told Comey to call the Hillary “criminal investigation” a matter, and he did, I expected to find a proper notation or legal definition somewhere. But no.

Legal dictionary says Matter is “a substantial, essential thing, opposed to form; facts.”  — Substantial, essential “thing“? – keep looking.

According to Science: (Live Science), there are five stages of matter: Solids, liquids, gases, plasma, Bose-Einstein condensates. Yet I see nowhere any stage morphs into a criminal investigation.

Or maybe we have discovered a brand new type of matter that has been so far elusive for millennia? I’d like to be first to name it “Lynch matter”: i.e the criminal investigation of a corrupt politico or politician. Elusive, slippery, evasive by nature.

But I still sort of like the term “criminal investigation,”… that’s just me.

Westinghouse down but not out

Westinghouse Bankruptcy Shakes The Nuclear World

On Wednesday, Westinghouse Electric Company filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in New York to restructure itself as a result of costly problems at the AP1000 power plants it’s building in Georgia and South Carolina.

Westinghouse has obtained $800 million in debtor-in-possession financing from a third-party lender to help fund and protect its core businesses during this reorganization.

Its Japanese parent company, Toshiba, declared that its nuclear power business has already lost $6 billion, which could go up to $10 billion, and is seeking ways to limit its liability. Toshiba shares have lost over $7 billion in market value this fiscal year.

Westinghouse selected the Shaw Group, led by James Bernhard Jr., to spearhead construction. Bernhard, a wheeler and dealer, ../

In the meantime, Westinghouse turned to a real nuclear construction contractor, Fluor Corporation, to get the nuclear plants back on track, but it is too early to tell how successful they will be. Even with the cost overruns and delays, these reactors should get completed and they should still have lower life-cycle costs than renewables or new coal.

It’s unclear to this simple laymen why they originally would have gone with the nuke-upstart Shaw Group? A big company like Westinghouse and Toshiba…like shouldn’t they have seen this coming? On the other hand Fluor — a company even I worked under a short time — is an old standard, and dependable.

Why did it take them so long, and make it so costly, to turn to them? Just seems they were out to cut corners(costs) from the beginning and got burned. What else explains it? Plus some inner-industry ego rivalry. Now they’ll pay for their errors.

But then the way media were starting to report the story as if Westinghouse was finished. And likely it will be spun into an anti-nuclear power story, which it is not if you read this report. In fact, nuclear energy should be enjoying a resurgence. Thanks Westinghouse-Toshiba [sarcasm], you didn’t do the sector any favors.

This insidious epidemic must stop

There is a terrible disease racing across America, affecting liberals and Democrats. Can it be contained or is it yet another epidemic? Sanity is such a terrible thing to squander.
