You Have To Wonder Dept.
Just how blatantly can a Democrat lie and still get away with it? From the Supreme Court oral arguments over federal vaccine mandates:
Ohio Solicitor General Benjamin Flowers, representing the coalition of GOP-led states opposing the OSHA rules, was quizzed by Justice Sotomayor on the mandates — which she again said was not a mandate.
She objected to his claim that Omicron represented a new situation than Delta, given its lesser severity in many instances, as well as his claim that vaccines appeared to be less effective at stopping transmission.
Sotomayor pointed to increased hospitalizations and said that “those numbers show that omicron is just as deadly for the unvaccinated.”
“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition and many on ventilators,” she said.
According to the Department of Health and Human services, the current national pediatric COVID census is 3,342. Yet as far as I know, none of the other Justices (and of course, none of the attorneys) called Sotomayor out on her falsehood.
The Democrats keep lying, getting caught, and told so to their faces…and they go on lying. Their last-ditch defense will probably be the “Casablanca gambit:”
Captain Renault: What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.
They’ve tried everything else.
Still Holding Fast, But Keep Watching.
Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D, AZ) has surprised many – Left and Right – with recent exhibitions of good sense. Her most recent one, in which she’s accompanied by Senator Joe Manchin (D, WV) is her opposition to a “carve-out” from the filibuster rule so the Democrats can federalize election law:
On Wednesday, Sinema announced that she is not on board with changing the Senate rules to require a simple majority or a carve-out to the filibuster. Ending or gutting the filibuster “would allow the 50-50-Senate-plus-Kamala to force through any bills the Democrats see fit, even through the dubious process known as “reconciliation.”
She’s also opposed to the Build Back Better socialist bill.
I guess Senator Sinema isn’t ready to be a communist yet. That qualifies her as a moderate for Democrats.
Joe Manchin is also not going along with the carve-out at this time.
The Democrats’ leadership, however, is not giving up. Yesterday it was reported that Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Oprah Winfrey (!) all called Manchin to urge him to go along with the demolition of the filibuster rule. And “progressive” groups are trying to coerce Sinema into compliance:
A coalition of progressive organizations on Monday announced the launch of a $1.5 million television ad campaign targeting centrist Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.) over her opposition to filibuster reform and a $15 per hour minimum wage.
Twenty Arizona groups joined Just Democracy, a coalition of more than 40 “Black and Brown-led organizations” promoting democracy reform, in unveiling two hard-hitting ads targeting Sinema.
The talk about “protecting voting rights” is so much froth and gas. Sinema has defied her Party’s bosses and must be brought back into line. Democrat legislators aren’t supposed to vote their consciences, you see. They’re supposed to do what they’ve been told by their Inner Party comrades. But that’s hardly news.
Occasionally, The Truth Gets Out
…but when it does, it swiftly draws a “correction.” First:
Then, ever so swiftly afterward:
To quote a certain Paul “Rhymin’” Simon, “Who do you think you’re foolin’?”
You Must Get Vaccinated?
Why are so many vaccinated people getting COVID-19 lately?
A couple of factors are at play, starting with the emergence of the highly contagious omicron variant. Omicron is more likely to infect people, even if it doesn’t make them very sick, and its surge coincided with the holiday travel season in many places.
People might mistakenly think the COVID-19 vaccines will completely block infection, but the shots are mainly designed to prevent severe illness, says Louis Mansky, a virus researcher at the University of Minnesota.
And the vaccines are still doing their job on that front, particularly for people who’ve gotten boosters.
I added the emphasis.
Weren’t we told – at the top of Anthony Fauci’s cringe-inducing voice – that the point of the vaccines is to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
Doublethink is your duty, Comrade. Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia. Oh, and thank and praise Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams!
An Optimistic Article.
Here it is. Read it in its entirety — not because it’s irrefutably true, which is questionable, but because it implies some strategies and tactics for resisting the encroachments of Leviathan. Some that have always been around are easier than ever to use. Others are wholly new, ushered in by the digital revolution. And anyway, we all need a little perking-up now and then.
American pilot Greg Pearson is speaking out about a wave of post-injection illness that he says is spreading rapidly throughout the aviation industry.
In a recent interview with “Real America’s Voice,” Pearson revealed that many of his pilot colleagues are “dropping like flies” with what he describes as severe chest pains.
Pearson himself actually had to be rushed to the hospital shortly after getting his “vaccination” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) because the injection(s) caused him to develop serious heart problems.
“I went to the ER where they quickly hooked me up to EKG IVs, did blood work quickly and determined that I was in atrial fibrillation,” Pearson said during a segment of the show. “It’s the major cause of stroke.”
“I could have stroked out at 100 feet while trying to land an airplane. I could have just pushed down on that stick before the person next to me could do anything. Whereas it’s all over for a lot of people.”
I’ve distrusted commercial air travel since September 11, 2001. Today you couldn’t get me onto an airliner at gunpoint. But with Australia having turned into the world’s largest prison camp, there’s nowhere I much want to go anyway.
That’s all for today, Gentle Reader. Have a pleasant weekend, and try to stay positive. (No, not COVID-positive.) For as a dear friend once told me, “It’s always darkest just before it turns pitch black.” (Which, incidentally, was a pretty good movie. But I digress.)
