Highlights of the News

Only 7 more pretend-to-be-nice-for-Santa days left until Christmas.

ITEM 1: The Atlantic reported, "The CDC’s Flawed Case for Wearing Masks in School.

"The agency’s director has said, repeatedly, that schools without mask mandates have triple the risk of COVID outbreaks. That claim is based on very shaky science."

All of the government's claims about covid are based on shaky science because none of the decision-makers are scientists. They are all bureaucrats. Even dumbass liberals can see it now.

ITEM 2: Freedom First reported, "An advisory panel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration voted to grant emergency authorization to Merck’s oral COVID-19 pill molnupiravir (Lagevrio) — but only by a narrow margin.1 The 13-to-10 vote speaks volumes about the panel’s confidence in the treatment, as do the numerous concerns regarding efficacy and safety voiced by the panel."

Are you ready for the punchline?

"Placebo Outperformed Drug in Second Half of Trial."

I'm getting me some of that placebo. Bet it tastes good, too.

ITEM 3: The New York Post reported, "Torn apart during the Holocaust, this family spent decades separated until they finally reunited recently, thanks to the internet. 

"While at the concentration camp Auschwitz during World War II, the Nazis separated a woman named Dora and her 2-year-old daughter, Eva. The pair would spend the rest of their lives searching for each other, but would never see one another again. 

"After the war, Dora moved to the US and had two more daughters. Unbeknownst to her, Eva had survived the atrocities of the Holocaust, and was brought to Israel, where she was adopted and later taken to Britain. 

"Both women have since passed away, but Eva’s daughter, Clare Reay, was miraculously able to reunite herself with the two children Dora had in the US after her son bought her a MyHeritage DNA test."

The Internet is like Pandora's Box. It opened the world to unimaginable evils. But it also gave us some humanity and hope.

ITEM 4: The Indian Express reported, "North Korea has banned its citizens from laughing, drinking and shopping from Friday onwards as part of the 11-day mourning on the 10th anniversary of former leader and Kim Jong Un’s father, Kim Jong-il."

And Dave Chappelle thinks he has it bad.

ITEM 5: Nicholas Sandmann tweeted, "At this time I would like to release that NBC and I have reached a settlement. The terms are confidential."

Good triumphs over evil.

ITEM 6: Speaking of evil.

Democrats say anything to get elected because no one ever holds them accountable for what they said in the campaign.

ITEM 8: The New York Post reported, "The New York Times has fired an editor at its Wirecutter website for leaving expletive-laden voicemails with a gun rights organization last month.

"The outlet announced the dismissal of Erin Marquis Friday, more than two weeks after she first made headlines for her rage following the Nov. 30 school shooting in Oxford, Mich. that left four students dead."

She attacked Great Lakes Gun Rights, a Michigan state affiliate of the National Association for Gun Rights. The group went public with what she said.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

ITEM 9: The Wall Street Journal reported, "Biden Administration Considers Sending Ukraine Military Equipment Once Bound for Afghanistan."

In totally unrelated news, Hunter just sold 10 paintings to a secret admirer in Kiev.

ITEM 10: Sean Hannity reported, "Fauci Wants Officials to Use the Word ‘Requirement’ Instead of ‘Mandate.’"

Fauci couldn't cut it as a doctor so he's trying to see how good a dictator he can be.

ITEM 11: Yahoo Sports reported, "Remember Bishop Sycamore? The high school football team no one had heard of that lost 58-0 to IMG Academy in a game that was somehow broadcast on ESPN? The game took place in Canton, Ohio, in August, and on Friday, the Ohio Department of Education released the report from its months-long investigation of the school.

"Turns out it's not a school at all. In the 41-page report, investigators determined that Bishop Sycamore 'is not a school as it purports on paper to be.' They couldn't confirm basic facts about the school, like its actual location or the names of any of its teachers — things you typically need to be considered a school."

Its initials are BS.

ITEM 12: The Daily Wire reported, "Biden Admin Announces Posthumous Medal Of Honor — For Living Recipient Standing In Room."

At that point the honoree, Master Sergeant Earl Plumlee, asked himself, what does Biden know that I don't know?

ITEM 13: Via Citizen Free Press, Roger Stone appeared before the January 6 Inquisition.

He pleaded the Fifth Amendment to every question.

Like a boss.

ITEM 14: Fox reported, "Fentanyl overdoses become No. 1 cause of death among US adults, ages 18-45: 'A national emergency.'"

Fentanyl. The other death threat spreading from Red China.

ITEM 15: Breitbart reported, "The establishment media’s online readership has reportedly collapsed without the aid of Donald Trump’s America First presidency.

"The Hill, Washington Post, New York Times, Politico, Wall Street Journal, CNN, and Vox Media have lost a large percentage of monthly unique visitors since Trump led the nation, according to Comscore data cited by the Journal.

"'Newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there,' Trump predicted in 2017, 'because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes.'

"Politico’s readership has reportedly declined the greatest amount at 48%. The Post‘s page views are reportedly fewer by 28%, followed by the Times at 15%, then the Journal and Vox Media at nine percent.

"As Trump is canceled on Twitter and Facebook, reducing his ability to immediately create a headline for the establishment media to print, the amount of the Post’s digital subscribers has reportedly declined by nearly 300,000."

Meanwhile, my readership remains steady at a more than a million pageviews a month. I find not lying helps.

FINALLY, Zero Hedge reported, "Global Coal Power Demand On Track For Record As Green Energy Transition Crumbles."

The story said, "There's no question that the 'greenification' of the global economy has returned many industrial countries to coal in 2021. New data from the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that the amount of electricity generated worldwide from coal is on track to hit a record high. 

"IEA's Coal 2021 report says global power generation from coal soared 9% in 2021 to an all-time high of 10,350 terawatt-hours. The rebound comes amid a rash of green policies and stupid political choices, such as decommissioning oil and gas-fired power plants and fossil fuel exploitation projects, ironically resulting in an energy crisis worldwide."

West Virginia has plenty of coal left.

Sadly, Washington has shackled its coal mines.

  1. 3 - I put my aunt and dad’s DNA on file about 12 years ago. Still haven’t found any surviving relatives from my grandparents families. I am encouraged when I read stories like this.

    4 - sounds like a blue state Covid lockdown.

    10 - Dr. Fece can use any words he like. I still won’t listen to him or believe a word I read from him.

  2. "Fauci Wants Officials to Use the Word ‘Requirement’ Instead of ‘Mandate.’"

    We got rid of the Draft ... by renaming it Selective Service.

    Congress passed the Civil War Military Draft Act of 1863. Wealthier men could afford to hire a substitute to take their place in the draft or pay $300 for a draft exemption—an enormous sum of money at the time.

    Woodrow Wilson signed the Selective Services Act in 1917, in preparation for U.S. involvement in World War I. The United States had a standing army of just over 100,000 at the time.

  3. "Fentanyl. The other death threat spreading from Red China."

    FDR's family fortune came from selling opium to the Chinese. This grandfather was Warren Delano.
    FDR’s grandfather’s opium fortune allowed Roosevelt and his family to enjoy riches derived from the "degradation and wretchedness of the Chinese people.”

    Many other affluent New England families made their fortunes from dealing opium. “The Cabot family of Boston endowed Harvard with opium money,” “while Yale’s famous Skull and Bones society was funded by the biggest American opium dealers of them all — the Russell family.” Add to that list John and Robert Forbes — of the Boston Forbes, whose line includes John Forbes Kerry.

  4. #4 .. Anyone who ever went to any Catholic school or was a member of any Catholic parish as a child (significant percentage of boomers) or as an adult would have instantly suspected that "Bishop Sycamore" was a hoax .. Catholic high schools are certainly named after Bishops, but who in America is named after a tree

    Catholic in America are mostly Irish, French, Hispanic, Polish and this is reflected in the names of the Bishops. In Az, three high schools (Gerard, Salpointe and Bourgade) were named for Bishops and those are clearly human names (French)
    Sycamore is not; its obviously a hoax name.

    And of course our media class embufooned themselves by falling for this obvious hoax. This is more damning than you realise

    BTW, Gerard High School closed its doors 30 years ago, so for anyone from AZ who wondered about that ...

  5. Oops, I almost forgot to include Italians in the Catholic fold. After all, in the movies you see Italians at Mass or baby Christening services all the time .. mostly just before they go and do a Mob hit on someone. Sometimes, good Italian Catholics like Michael Corleone can do both simultaneously. Talk about multi tasking

  7. Item 3 - DNA test reunites family.

    After WWII, the Iron Curtain descended and my mother's family in Poland asked her to stop writing them because it was too dangerous. That generation died out before the Cold War ended, so I never knew my relatives in Poland. Ancestry just sent me an email about a DNA match with a person in Poland who's last name is my grandmother's maiden name.

    Ancestry also hooked me up with a 2nd cousin in Sweden. He lives in the town my father did. He speaks English, so we write each other.

  12. re Item 1 -- No point in believing any study or trial or whatever on COVID-19. It's all politicized and has been from the beginning. I am now of the opinion that a third jab will make no difference and that we will all get the virus at some point, if not already, and natural immunity will take over. However, I do want to stress for those who want to keep getting vaxxed, that is a choice I will respect.

  13. My evolution from an enthusiastic supporter of the vaccine to a skeptic in a matter of about 6 to 8 months surprises me. Overall, I am pro-vaccination and have had my kids vaccinated and would never have thought of doing otherwise. I think the bullying and the shaming, which I have seen first hand, and the politicization, have contributed to my change of heart. Mandates have not helped. Now I see the Left as supporters of Big Pharma -- unbelievable to me. How many others have experienced this?

    4. Just yesterday I ran into these two articles based on the same company, BMJ (which seems to stand for British Medical Journal). It's a pair of great reads to see where we are in the politization of "the science". The first link is the story that BMJ did on the data integrity issues of the Pfizer trial and the woman who was fired for coming forward. The second link is the response to Facebook (and others) on the dismissive lying the large media did (bullying) to squash the information of the first link. It says it all.

  19. Excerpt:

    But make no mistake, what’s happening with the January 6 Committee is the latest episode that signifies the quite dangerous rise of the New American Fascism. To borrow from von Mises, Cheney and fellow GOPer and Committee member Kinzinger, not to mention the rest of the Committee and Pelosi herself, epitomize:

    … utterly … intolerant zealots.… They advocate enlightened despotism … convinced that the enlightened despot will in every detail comply with their own opinion.… They are utterly intolerant and are not prepared to allow any discussion.

  20. What blows my mind is this race to green energy, we do need to go that direction but the reality of any evolution takes time. I have to laugh when electric cars are less than 1% of the vehicles on the road but will be 100% of new production in 10 years. No way. It will have done well to get to 20% by then.

    But not as amazing as the fools that believe solar power works great after sunset.
