Media keeps the fear going

We’re all supposed to be scared of the dreaded delta variant so there is a push among public health “experts” to mask up again and remind everyone that this is super scary and we all have to care what these “doctors” have to say on CNN or Yahoo News.

Some state and local politicians also want people to remember who they are and how they’re so important and that they may require you to muzzle your face or close your business or whatever else happens to help Democrats and it’s for your protection!

Luckily I think the momentum has swung in the other direction and those people who think ramping up the fear porn this summer is good politics will be sadly mistaken. At least in most of the USA.

God help Europe. And Australia. And Canada. And California. Hopefully the insanity at least stays out of America this time. I’m all in favor of Calexit.

Cops murder teenager in Arkansas

We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this investigation, but it appears this may have been an instance of a cop being way too nervous about a routine traffic stop. So he killed a high school kid for the crime of exiting his vehicle which scared the officer. No word on what race the cop was.

Anyway, I believe now is when we’ll see the BLM protests, the condemnation from Biden and every other Democrat, the pearl clutching on MSNBC and CNN, and of course riots in every major city.

Oh wait, no. We’ll likely never hear about this again after today. This is just a “local story” after all. Maybe if you live in Little Rock the local Fox affiliate will follow up in a few months to let you know that the shooting was justified and the family of this kid will get a big settlement at taxpayer expense.

Fauci doubles down on the fear porn and the media continue to regurgitate his propaganda

Check out this “reporting” from CNBC:

Fauci declares delta variant ‘greatest threat’ to the nation’s efforts to eliminate Covid

Delta, first identified in India, now makes up about 20% of all new cases in the United States, up from 10% about two weeks ago, Fauci said.

2 weeks ago the 7 day average for daily new cases in the US was 15,992. Yesterday it was 11,502. So cases are falling, but we’re all supposed to be scared because a higher percentage is the dreaded Delta Variant.

He said delta appears to be “following the same pattern” as alpha, the variant first found in the U.K., with infections doubling in the U.S. about every two weeks.

Yeah and they tried to scare us with the “UK variant” (Alpha) back in April, but nothing ever came of it. But this time the Delta variant is super serious and we all need to shit our pants.

“Similar to the situation in the U.K., the delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the U.S. to our attempt to eliminate Covid-19,” he said.

What is this nonsense about “eliminating” Covid-19? When did that become the goal? The Spanish flu from 1918 is “still with us” according to WaPo. But we’re going to “eliminate” this much less deadly virus because Science.

Studies suggest it is around 60% more transmissible than alpha, which was more contagious than the original strain that emerged from Wuhan, China, in late 2019

What studies? Who conducted them and when?

Health officials say there are reports that the delta variant also causes more severe symptoms, but that more research is needed to confirm those conclusions.

What reports? From whom?

Without the massive propaganda campaign and ridiculous amount of testing going on, no one would even know COVID is still around. We need to move on as a society and stop obsessing over this one single virus. The sooner the hysterics realize Fauci is a shameless self promoter with an extreme bias toward vaccines over other methods of treatment, the sooner we can calm the fuck down and live normal lives again.

White people not allowed to participate in climate activism?

Apparently a New Zealand climate activism group with some loose link to Greta Thunberg has disbanded itself due to racism in its rank.

One of the major talking points on climate change, which will slowly take the place of COVID as the hysteria the media pushes to increase State power, is that it disproportionately affects people of color. Because as we must remember this most holy of national holidays that no one ever heard of until 2020, Juneteenth, EVERYTHING BAD DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTS PEOPLE OF COLOR, BUT SOMEHOW BENEFITS THE EVIL WHITE SUPREMACISTS!

This raises some interesting questions. Will white people be allowed to participate in climate activism moving forward? Are white people going to be told that they somehow benefit from climate change, but they need to fight against it, while letting the BLM types run all the protests and excluding them? Is that really going to be a winning argument in favor of draconian restrictions enforced by the government (still made up mostly of white people by the way) in the name of keeping the climate exactly how it is right now? Will the “science” still look all sciency when it’s wrapped in an anti-racism bow?

Can the State and its media propagandists keep track of all the contradictory lies they’re going to have to tell to move this thing forward?

Did government agents play a role in January 6?

Tucker Carlson is raising the issue on his show. Apparently there are a number of “unindicted coconspirators” named by prosecutors in the case against the attackers of the Holy Temple of Democracy on January 6, 2021. He may be jumping to conclusions to some extent to assume these were FBI agents, but as he points out, the FBI has been running these types of operations routinely against Muslims for the past two decades. That’s established fact. One of the main plotters of the phony plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan was also an FBI informant.

I would be willing to bet the FBI had infiltrated these groups that stormed the capital and these unnamed people are likely either government agents or assets. The government and their media allies will certainly make it difficult to get to the bottom of this. It remains to be seen if we’ll ever find out their level involvement in the actual capital riot and other events of that day.

This is further evidence of how useless Trump was as president, even if you agreed with his professed objectives. His own FBI was successfully attempting to infiltrate and probably entrap his biggest supporters in an effort to discredit his political movement. He was of course completely unaware of any of this. He did nothing to drain the swamp during his four years in office and continually employed deep state career bureaucrats who hated him in key positions. Even if you think the MAGA agenda was just what the USA needed (I personally think some was good, a lot was bad), Trump was completely unable to deliver on any of it. No one should be supporting his future political ambitions at this point.
