terrorists protesters are suing the City of Seattle for the cost of their “forced” upgrading of protesting gear. Yeah, totally idiotic, not based in reality, right? What if they win?
What?! You say, shocked at the notion, the absurdity of it. Think: the left has a long history of “sue and settle” with cooperative government agencies as a way to do and end-run around laws and pols via the courts, particularly in the realm of environmental issues. So consider: they are running out of funding as their socialists backers are feeling the squeeze of Trump’s actions. So they sue the (amenable) city of Seattle, the city settles and hands them a bunch of taxpayer dollars so they can continue to
riot protest “safely.” If that happens, then YOU, the taxpayer, are helping fund the people trying to burn your business and kill you.
So, if that happens, who’s the chump? and will any normies hear about it?
Because counting is hard, you can’t trust the numbers. How can they screw up the COVID count, you ask? Let me count the ways:
- False positives (many ways for this one thing alone to happen).
- Test the same person multiple times, counting each one separately as a new case.
- Inflating the numbers as they get aggregated and passed up the line.
- Straight up lying.
- Counting anyone with one of more of the symptoms, even in the absence of any test results, as positive.
- Incentivizing assigning COVID as the diagnosis by paying more for it than for any possible alternate diagnosis.
- Treating any death for any reason as a COVID death entry if they test positive at any time.
- Count any hospitalization for any reason as primarily a COVID case if they test positive, or have any of the symptoms even if it isn’t confirmed.
- Once the COVID diagnosis is given, not changing it even if they are later determined to not ever have had it.
- Changing the definition of what gets counted to be more sweeping.
News stories documenting each and every one of these things can easily be found in any and every month time-period since things started getting weird in late March. In fact, most of them can be found if you dig around in every calendar week. They are often not headline stories for weeks on end because they don’t fit the official narrative, but the cumulative effect isn’t trivial. Meanwhile the death toll is falling, much like it would in the summer months with a seasonal flu.
I first wrote about hydroxychloroquine (NCQ) back in March, and the first reports on it were obviously showing up earlier, starting (as near as I can tell) in late Jan to middle of Feb, and were common by the middle of March. HCQ has been around for more than a half-century, it’s a well-known drug, with known effects and contra-indicators, and is FDA approved. It’s used for several conditions. It was tested (positively) for antiviral properties at least as early as 2005 by teh same group Fouch is now the head of. Same for zinc and D3.
Now, I can see why a big pharma would not want to test HCQ, and pursue some custom anti-viral: profits. There is no significant money in a generic produced in several countries. It’s cold, cynical, and morally reprehensible, but legal and understandable for rea$on$.
But why have no government health agencies managed to run a credible study on HCQ, a study credible enough that a keyboard warrior with a modicum of scientific knowledge like myself can’t poke holes in inside of 90 seconds? If it’s incompetence, then they are not worth the money we send their way. If it’s not incompetence, they all the alternatives are nefarious and they need to be seriously investigated at the least, and in front of a firing squad if it’s deliberate to increase the fatality rate for some reason. I mean, seriously… how compromised do they have to be to not be able to test something in 4 months when the reported cure time is less than a week and thousands of cases are reported every day? And how compromised to our media and politicians have to be to not be asking this question every damn day?

Have a good one, and don’t forget your history.
I wrote the following note to my state Representatives and Senator, and requested a reply. When I get a reply I’ll post that as a follow-up.

If you are silent on such an obvious violation of recently passed state law, and such events do not evoke suspicion in you, then you are tacitly condoning such illegal activity as long as it effectively targets your opposition, much like the Nazis, the Russian NKVD, and Mao’s hit squads, allowed some political violence but not others, and arbitrary enforcement of the law (with is the same as supporting lawlessness). Interesting ideological company you keep.
That way lies civil war and death. (I say this as a student of military history).
Care to comment?
Within the case West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette, there is the following passage:
If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.
If I’m reading this correctly, that means that any school district or other government institution that requires you to sign or write a commitment to “diversity” is violating the law. Any legal-beagles out there who can confirm or reject my understanding? It would seem that so many school districts say this, and they to do otherwise would be “against their values,” but then they turn around and say preaching values would be unconstitutional, so you can’t push your biblical interpretation of anything. So… if the WVBoE case is right, then…. they can’t discriminate against you if you think one of their “values” is bull. could that make the basis of a class action lawsuit?
The latest cringe-worthy celebrity PSA is so awesome comments on youtube for it are closed. It is called “I take responsibility.” The write-up at the link is pretty good, so I’d encourage you to hit it. What occurred to me is that their encourage / extorting you to “give to BLM [or other racists / leftwing cause]” to prove your contrition has an exact parallel.
The medieval practice of buying an indulgence from the Catholic church to have your sins forgiven. They are morally preening, virtue-signaling without any actual meaning, demanding that YOU must give money to approved donation-plates to be forgiven of your racism and bigotry. Considering how messed up most of them are, the irony is so thick you could cast battleship armor from it.
I’ve had several rather unsatisfactory interactions with one of my son’s teachers, and the principal of the school he attends. I’ve even gone as high as the head of curriculum and learning, trying to see if factual accuracy where possible was an actual expectation.
Below is a (nearly) final draft of a note I’m considering sending to the Language Arts / Social Studies teacher, the principal, and the curriculum director (all are female). Other than being too long, any thoughts? Continue reading Schools are failing boys
It’s common in election years to have accusations of vote fraud thrown around. There is no question that it happens, some where, to some degree. The real question in the debates I have is how much is there, who is doing it, how organized is it, and does it actually have any significant effect on election outcomes? I’m talking the basic ballot-box stuffing, counting fraud, etc., not the back-room deals and pressure WRT who runs or not, and a partisan media giving free positive coverage to one side and negative coverage the other way. Just the actual vote casting and counting “irregularities.” So I put up a page, listed under “plague” on the menu (where I’ll put all “off-topic from writing” pages, I think), and just keep adding things there as I see the stories.
I believe it’s reasonable to assume that people who are partisan Dems in their other activities will commit fraud in favor of Dem candidates and causes, and in Dem strongholds pro-Dem fraud is much more likely to occur; similarly, long-time partisan Republicans will commit pro-R fraud.
