Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Via Trending Politics, after something called the Christmas Bureau in Spokane refused to feed children who were unvaccinated, real Christians stepped up and started the No Vaccine Canteen to feed all.

The establishment treating the unvaccinated like lepers amuses me because Christ walked among the lepers.

ITEM 2: The Hill posted "The 10 Republicans most likely to run for president."

You already know the names because most of them are grifters who just want to raise a lot of money to spend as they please. Running for president gets your name in the papers, pays for travel and nice hotels, and lets you pad your payroll with family and friends.

There are rich folks who really believe there will be a President Larry Hogan, the RINO-stone Cowboy from Maryland.

ITEM 3: Townhall reported, "Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said Monday he won’t be continuing with a statewide mask mandate, The Daily Caller first reported. The Democratic governor pointed to New York City, where Covid-19 is spreading like wildfire even with a mask mandate in place.

"Asked in a press conference about whether masks could also play a role in helping 'curb the spike that we’re currently in,' Lamont said it doesn’t appear to be doing much in the Big Apple."

Burn.

I am still convinced that omicron is the cure. Get it, build up a natural immunity.

ITEM 4Zero Hedge reported, "After months of providing valuable Covid-19 information that runs counter to the official narrative, Twitter has finally banned Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of mRNA technology."

It is government censorship because Twitter is just doing what the present regime wants done.

Kill Section 230 and have the civil rights arm of DOJ go after the Internet oligarchs. Antitrust division, too.

ITEM 5: Red State reported, "CDC Director Rochelle Walensky made a stunning comment on ABC-Disney's Good Morning America. The newly updated CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks."

They do not know what they are doing and they lie constantly.

ITEM 6: AP reported, "British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted Wednesday of luring teenage girls to be sexually abused by the American millionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

"The verdict capped a monthlong trial featuring sordid accounts of the sexual exploitation of girls as young as 14, told by four women who described being abused as teens in the 1990s and early 2000s at Epstein’s palatial homes in Florida, New York and New Mexico.

"Jurors deliberated for five full days before finding Maxwell guilty of five of six counts. With the maximum prison terms for each charge ranging from five to 40 years in prison, Maxwell faces the likelihood of years behind bars — an outcome long sought by women who spent years fighting in civil courts to hold her accountable for her role in recruiting and grooming Epstein’s teenage victims and sometimes joining in the sexual abuse."

I believe any sentence of 20 years or more should come with giving the convicted the option of execution.

ITEM 7: Truth About Cars reported, "While the official figures haven’t dropped, just about every outlet tracking new vehicle sales is projecting a significant decline in volume for December 2021. Showrooms have been trending toward the minimalist aesthetic since 2019 with the pandemic kicking things into overdrive as supply bottlenecks nullified practically every manufacturer’s ability to produce anywhere near its normal pace.

"Last December was bleak, with sales falling by around 5% for the month as the typical transaction price for automobiles set new records. The U.S. market only saw 1.54 million sales, the lowest volume witnessed since December of 2014. But 2021 volumes are shaping up to be decidedly worse. This month is on track to fall by anywhere from 23 to 30 percent with retail sales barely cresting 1 million units as transaction prices for both new and used vehicles surpass all previous metrics."

That should bring Bentley prices back to Earth.

ITEM 8: The Post Millennial reported, "CNN has confirmed on Wednesday that Jake Tapper's producer, Rick Saleeby, has resigned from his position after it was revealed that he allegedly solicited sexually explicit photos of an underage girl. Fairfax County police seized devices from his residence.

"The news broke to Twitter via Jack Posobiec of Human Events, along with Project Veritas' James O'Keefe, who first reported the revelations."

This comes on the heels of the feds busting CNN's John Griffin on pedophile-related charges.

Creepy porn network.

ITEM 9: The Daily Wire reported, "More Than 1,400 Afghan Kids Evacuated To U.S. Without Their Parents.

"Some of the children's parents were killed in the Kabul airport bombing."

Save the children.

And keep them away from CNN.

ITEM 10: Zero Hedge reported, "Not having the money for a down payment isn't the only factor deterring millennials from buying a home. For some, an ingrained fear of "adult" responsibilities like the joys of home maintenance is something they would rather leave up to a landlord.

"In fact, some 45% of millennials say these responsibilities are a major deterrent to owning a home. Or at least that's one recent survey found.

"Whether it's fixing a leaky faucet or a busted pipe, being a homeowner can be a time-consuming enterprise."

Do they know how to fix a leaky faucet or busted pipe?

Given how a growing number of boys grow up without a father, I wonder how many can.

ITEM 11: CNN reported, "President Joe Biden will hold a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday afternoon 'to discuss a range of topics, including upcoming diplomatic engagements with Russia,' National Security Council spokesperson Emily Horne told CNN."

I'm going to miss Ukraine.

ITEM 12: Newsweek reported, "Indigenous leaders in New Mexico are concerned over a proposed transmission line, expected to cost up to $300 million, that they say would cross through an important sacred area in the state.

"The line would reach for over 12 miles, including through an area called the Caja del Rio that contains a high concentration of petroglyphs, ancestral homes, ceremonial kivas, roads, irrigation structures and other cultural materials, according to the All Pueblo Council of Governors."

OK. Fine. Cancel the project and cut off the electricity to the reservation because we would not want to upset the spirits.

Besides, isn't electricity cultural appropriation?

ITEM 13: President Trump announced, "Joe Biden inherited the most secure border in history, the fastest economic recovery on record, historically low gas prices, hard-won American Energy Independence, a domestic manufacturing renaissance, and a nation poised to flourish like never before—all thanks to the America-First agenda of President Trump. It took less than 12 months for Biden and the extremists in his party to turn it all into crisis, chaos, misery, and woe."

Four years earlier, Obama released a statement on Trump's first year as president. Obama said President Trump inherited the most porous border in history, a slow-growing economy, relying on foreign oil, a declining manufacturing base, and a nation doomed to socialism.

OK, Obama did not do that. But he should have.

ITEM 14: Yahoo reported, "The delivery service DoorDash is making all its employees — even the CEO — deliver at least once a month, but not everyone is happy about the initiative, and some employees have turned to an anonymous employee social platform to vent.

"Under its WeDash program, employees — including those in DoorDash's corporate offices — must serve as delivery drivers at least once a month. If they can't deliver, they can choose other experiences, such as shadowing customer-service staff.

"WeDash is the company's flagship employee-engagement program, which aims to have workers 'learn firsthand how the technology products we build empower local economies, which in turn helps us build a better product,' a DoorDash spokesperson said.

"One DoorDash employee who reported a total annual compensation of $400,000 complained about the DoorDash initiative on the anonymous employee social platform Blind in a post titled 'Doordash making engineers deliver food.'"

Somebody needs to go work somewhere else because that sounds like an excellent way to keep people focused on the company's reason to exist.

ITEM 15: The New York Daily News reported, "He’s for COVID vaccines but against making anyone get one.

"President Trump told Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), one of the most outspoken anti-vaxxers in Congress, that he supports the COVID-19 vaccine but opposes making the shots mandatory."

Yup.

That's where I am. I got vaccinated. You do you. 

FINALLY, the Babylon Bee joked, "Poll: 9 Out Of 10 Americans Support Tossing Dr. Fauci In A Volcano."

Dwarf tossing is illegal.

  2. Item 2: “The 10 Republicans most likely to run for president.” Open auditions to replace Pat Paulson, the Smothers Brothers comedian who ran for President every 4 years.

    Item 8: “Jake Tapper's producer, Rick Saleeby, has resigned” That will be the extent of his punishment. It doesn’t matter how serious the crime is, if you’re a Democrat, quitting your job makes it all go away.

    Item 15: “I got vaccinated. You do you” You got “vaccinated” before the full effects of the gene treatment were known. Anyone submitting to the experimental “jab” today does not have that excuse. Two more studies, one from Denmark and the other from Canada, show that the mRNA treatments cause more illness than they prevent. And they looked only at susceptibility to getting COVID after “vaccination,” not included in their study were the serious, well-documented side effects:

      Delete
    2. Yes, death is part of the “serious, well-documented side effects” I mentioned. The new information out of Denmark is that, beginning 90 days after the second dose, people who took Pfizer’s drug are 76% more likely to get COVID than unvaccinated people. Those who took Moderna’s drug are 40% more likely to get COVID than unvaccinated people. The increased likelihood of infection and death caused by the experimental treatment was not known to early adopters like Don.

    3. Every now and then during the incessant drug commercials, I hit pause and actually read the fine-print disclaimers at the end. I read one recently that actually listed "sudden unexplained death", mixed in with the diarrhea and upset stomach side-effects.

  5. Item 4, Banning a non-government covid expert: Conservatives are always a little slow in understanding the rules of the left.

    Conservatives believe that ‘these are Private Companies’, and they have the right to make their own decisions. Under Socialism, they are still ‘Private Companies’ but they exist only because they do the bidding of the government. That is where we are now!

    Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Apple all operate under Federal Regulations that allow them patent protection for their software, processes, and technology. File a lawsuit with a judge that understands and respects the Constitution demanding the removal of patent protection for all those programs and processes used by those firms to restrict our rights protected by the Constitution. Because of those patent protections the Government is complicit in denying us our Constitutional Rights! This is exactly the way the lawsuit should be framed.

    1. "Under Socialism, they are still ‘Private Companies’ but they exist only because they do the bidding of the government."

      Actually, not. Under socialism, the government owns the means of production.

      One bit of fun that one used to be able to have around socialists was to call them "fascists" just to prod a predictable reaction. They would insist that NO NO NO they aren't fascists, since socialism is about the government owning the means of production, while fascism is about the government controlling the means of production without owning them - and that this difference makes socialism and fascism COMPLETE POLITICAL POLAR OPPOSITES OF EACH OTHER. Talk about "differences that don't matter"!!

      Now, of course, the so-called socialists are controlling things without owning them - which meets their own definition of fascism. I.e., THEY ARE FASCISTS!!

    3. I agree on them not knowing how to change a light bulb.

      When disaster strikes, rural areas get back to normal faster (except for power lines which rely on others) because they know how to fix things themselves. The roads are cleared of debris faster since they have the equipment and aren’t afraid to work.

    4. Schlongy, speaking from a rural area, the "city people" who come in (sorry to sound sexist - but former "city women" are the worst offenders on this count) are completely incapable of fending for themselves.

They whine a lot.

  10. #10. I used to do service calls for a rental company. They had a number of female renters who would not reset a breaker.
    The bad part was that while they would call immediately about electrical problems, they would wait days or weeks on plumbing issues especially if the landlord paid the water bill.
    In general, renters don't teach their kids the basics.

    Replies
    1. A strategy some landlords use is giving a “discount” on the rent if a renter fixes small things himself instead of calling for service. If there are no service calls this month, you get a $50 discount on the rent next month. If you call the landlord to reset a breaker or change a light bulb, next month’s discount disappears.

    Barry thought the damage he'd done was sufficient to sink our nation, but he didn't expect the superhuman effort President Trump made to save it and us.
    Frankly, I didn't expect Trump to pull it out like he did. He didn't fight them with one hand tied behind his back, he did it with both hands tied and his own corner, the louse of representatives actively opposing him. Ly'in Ryan and rancid Prebus did everything to thwart success.

    Q2, are the vax mandates evil or mischievous?
    Q3, are the lock downs evil or mischievous?
    In Germanic mythology, elves are tiny creatures who can bring disease to people and to cattle or can cause nightmares by sitting on a sleeper's chest. They also steal newborn babies and replace them with deformed elf children, called “changelings.”

    2. Omicron cases in Quebec have skyrocketed to the point where the provincial government, which didn't have the nerve to cancel Christmas and New Year's, is likely to lock us down and with a curfew in early January. That's the current rumour. The government is absolutely terrified of our "free" health care system collapsing, to the point where they are asked COVID-infected personnel to keep working. In Quebec, we have 825 beds, including 125 ICU beds, dedicated to COVID (omicron) for a population of 8 million. Those beds are full and for that we are going to get a lockdown. It's insanity. Don't ever think that socialized medicine is the answer.

      I also suspect that there's another bit of hidden fallout under here, due to the plague causing the border to basically be closed for nearly two years now. Canada's back-up private health care system has long been the US - for Canadians who don't want to wait forever and aren't destitute, they could drive across the border and pay cash on the barrelhead for care they can't get in Canada (or at least without waiting for 18 months, in pain). I've always wondered how much of an economic contribution this kind of business was making to US border regions.

  23. 1 - There's also something very alarming in this sort of thing. Even if "single-payer" (sic) "health care" (sic) were started with pure intent, what would happen when the inevitable (rationing - inevitable when you pump up demand while reducing supply) arrived? Would it be done on "practical" (sic?) grounds, like denying care based on age, condition, etc., etc., etc.? Or would it be done on a political basis (denying care to "class enemies")? We don't have to wonder anymore - they're doing it already.

    3 - Hmm. It clearly spreads more readily in dense urban environments, and during the colder seasons. Like basically any respiratory infection.

    7 - Don, sure about the Bentley? I can't help but recall something once said by Canada's Greatest Living Philosopher, Red Green: "Where there's smoke, there's a British car."

    15 - And everyone should go over their own medical situation with their own doctor. In history, vaccines have been a great plus - but no vaccine is 100% safe or 100% effective. Personally, I'd also like to see more emphasis on generalized health self-improvement - like not being obese, getting fresh air and exercise, etc. If you work at things like that, your immune system will fight off most stuff on its own.

    The Massachusetts 1905 SCOTUS decision to uphold the smallpox vaccination in that STATE was for a disease that killed 30-35% of those infected; it killed directly, not that it was discovered when someone died of other causes as WITH covid now.  Vitamin D is needed to strengthen one's immune system, but we are not told that; just get vaccinated. 
    Without the testing now available, my early possible covid infection and my proof of infection is beyond the testing window as it presently exists. My ability, for almost 2 years to avoid covid, colds, and the flue tell me I have a very strong immune system or utilizing the FLCCC's/Dr. McCullough's vitamin and OTC drug covid prevention protocols have served me well at 77 years of age with kidney disease and diabetes.  I have not changed my life style because of this virus and have survived. 
    One can legally bring back from Mexico for $50 enough OTC ivermectin for the standard covid protocol for two or three people depending upon their weight.  I don't trust the mail order method of obtaining it.  See sevencells.com.  Min of $99 for one person.
    10)  They know little about any kind of repair.  My basement was flooding yesterday from my hot water heater.  I shut off the water and power, opened the cover where the water was flowing beneath and discovered the element had blow out due to corroded threads, chased the threads with the right sized pipe nipple, installed an element salvaged from an old water heater, jumpered out the wet upper controller and energized the lower temperature controller.  We had hot water and once the insulation has dried out, I will restore the upper controller.  Gee, done without me having a college degree; just navy training in electronics and electrical maintenance, being a nuclear plant operator and field engineer in power plant construction and testing for 34 years.  That is why I led the charge to open a true school of technology in our school system.  We won, too.
    14)  During my short time in college, I went on a co-op job with a company owned by a Russian immigrant.  I had to start working at the bottom of the production line and was to work through the difference phases of the production facilities and eventually to go to all the world industrial fairs as the engineer to explain our company and products.  The plant was staffed by vets, provided profit sharing, full benefits and the supervision of the phase I worked in gave management a weekly report on my progress.  I quit college and I was to remain in the co-op program but the draft ended my progress with the company.  Life can sometimes suck, but my navy training set me up for a successful civilian life.

  34. convinced that omicron is the cure.
    ----
    wondering if Omicron is the virus naturally resetting to original configuration without the gain of function spike adjustment?

    don't we have original specimen to compare with?

  35. #2 - as a Maryland resident and someone who’s watched Governor Larry Hogan since he was first elected - I’d give a BIG thumbs down to him as a candidate die the Oval Office. He’s AT BEST a Rhino - and really doesn’t stand for anything but what will get him re-elected.
    And yes, I know - I just described nearly all professional politicians. :-/
