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.

Evil dictator continues to order his subjects muzzled

Phil Murphy, a Goldman Sachs bankster born and raised in Massachusetts and currently Governor of NJ, has decided to be the only tyrant left in America still requiring people to mask up and pretend it does something other than show compliance to his tyranny.

“The majority of New Jerseyans are still unvaccinated, and keeping this mandate in place in public settings protects you, your family, essential workers, and our entire community,”

He says this without having to show evidence that masks have done anything to stop the spread of COVID. It’s just a given now that masks work. Strange that no one ever tried this before over thousands of years of human civilizations grappling with airborne diseases.

“All of our metrics show one thing – at this moment together, we are as good if not better than any state in America in winning this war,”

He says this as if he cares about his subjects and has done a great job “protecting” them from the scary virus. Although if you want to check on a thing called reality, NJ has THE WORST DEATH RATE IN THE WORLD behind only Hungary. Literally only one country on the entire planet has done a worse job than this bastard who intentionally spread COVID in nursing homes back in March 2020.

He’s also in the process of getting his dictatorial powers certified by the legislature so he can drop his phony State of Emergency while still forcing residents to bend their knee to any edict he wishes to impose on them, no matter how absurd or counterproductive.

You’d think the opposition party would want to oppose him. And they do. Here’s a quote from some guy named Michael Testa who is supposedly a Republican state senator:

“With the CDC clearly stating that masks serve no public health purpose, Pennsylvania, New York and many other states have already lifted restrictions or announced plans to do so this week,” Testa added. “Instead of following the science here in New Jersey, we have a governor who continues to restrict personal freedoms to cater to the irrational fears of a timid liberal constituency.”

The second half of that is fine I suppose, and basically true. However, anyone who actually values “personal freedoms” should not be citing the CDC to justify their attacks on these tyrannical despots that have made our lives miserable for the past 14 months. The CDC was backing up these lockdowns and mask mandates until a few days ago. If you attack your opponents for not following their guidelines now, then the next time they whip the media and public into a frenzy about some new disease, you’ll have no argument against following whatever insane policies the Tony Faucis of the world prescribe to fight it.

The CDC should be abolished, and at the State and local level ignored and ridiculed. Put that in the Republican platform if you actually want to inspire anyone. But as usual, the GOP will be outmaneuvered and cede 99% of the argument to their Democrat colleagues. Republicans love being professional losers. It pays well.

New low in cowardice

This one is unfortunate. I’ve never watched The Bachelor so I don’t know anything about this guy Chris Harrison. What makes this so sad, is that he actually was doing a good thing. He was standing up for some poor girl who was having her life ruined because she attended a sorority ball that had a theme out of fashion with the coastal elites. And I understand it’s hard to stand up to the woke mob. When it seems the entire entertainment or media industry is arrayed against you, that has to rattle you.

But this is just pathetic:

I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful. My ignorance did damage to my friends, colleagues and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I said and the way I spoke. I set standards for myself, and have not met them. I feel that with every fiber in my being. Now, just as I taught my children to stand up, and to own their actions, I will do the same.

By excusing historical racism, I defended it. I invoked the term “woke police,” which is unacceptable. I am ashamed over how uninformed I was. I was so wrong.

To the Black community, to the BIPOC community: I am so sorry. My words were harmful. I am listening, and I truly apologize for my ignorance and pain it caused you. I want to give my heartfelt thanks to the people from these communities who I’ve had enlightening conversations with over the past few days, and I am so grateful to those who have reached out to help me on my path to anti-racism….

I am dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level than ever before. I want to ensure our cast and crew members, to my friends colleagues and our fans: this is not just a moment, but a commitment to much greater understanding that I will actively make every day.

From here I can only try to evolve and be a better man, and I humble myself before all of you….

And of course, he got fired anyway. It’s easy for me to say since I’m an anonymous blogger with zero readers but never apologize. Your apology won’t be accepted by the people trying to destroy you and you’ll lose all your potential defenders.

Sick of Justin Amash

Let me preface this by saying he almost always voted the way a libertarian would want him to in Congress. If the entire Congress voted as he did during his tenure, we’d be in a much better place from my perspective. The Empire would have ended, all troops would have come home, the budget would have shrunk down to a tiny fraction of where it is now, the police state would have been greatly curtailed, and the Federal Reserve would have at least been audited.

But I just can’t get behind the guy as the standard-bearer of the Libertarian Party. I think it would be a disaster if he was the presidential nominee in 2024. He seems determined to alienate every person who doesn’t despise Trump as much as he does. He’s basically writing off tens of millions of Americans who currently hate the federal government as crazy idiots or worse, rather than trying to recruit them to libertarianism.

He’s really an uninspiring politician. He gives boring answers to questions that sound like he just finished reading some Reason Magazine article to the subjects at hand. While he’s against the lockdowns, he rarely talks about them. As best I can tell his vision of the LP is to reach out to the Paul Ryan wing of the Republican party. The old “socially liberal economically conservative” nonsense. Not happy with Trumpism but still hate the Democrats? Join Justin in the more moderate Libertarian Party. I hate to break it to him, but those guys aren’t giving up on the GOP just yet.

Could Justin Amash get more votes than Gary Johnson in 2016? Maybe. Depends on what the GOP does between now and then I guess.

Will he inspire anyone? Will he use any of the energy currently growing inside the LP among the more radical elements to actually spread a message of Liberty? I seriously doubt it.

The Left always wins

Because they have people in power that defend them no matter what.

A Leftist can try to massacre a group of Republicans and Democrats will call for more gun control.

Leftists can riot, loot, and burn private businesses for months on end and Democrats will claim they were “peaceful.

But when right winters dare enter the Holy Temple of Democracy while the Democrats are in the process of coronating their new Emperor, well most Republicans (and most “respectable” Libertarians) can’t wait to issue statements condemning the violence and throwing their own supporters to the wolves. You hear barely a peep about the coming crackdowns on dissent. They’re more scared of being the next target of a Leftist 2 Minute Hate than they are of the actual authoritarianism being implemented right in front of their faces.

Here are the cold heart facts about our politicians and their hangers-on in the media and think tanks.

  1. Most Democrats care only about power and are fine with being hypocritical. They simply don’t care. They will throw their hypocrisy in your face and laugh.
  2. Most Republicans care more about being perceived as “fair-minded” than about actually stopping progressive politics from being forced on their voters. They condemned BLM riots so they have to immediately condemn anything bad MAGA does. This plays right into the Left’s hands because they can paint all opposition as Nazis or white supremacists and sit back while all Republicans can do is condemn those same people in slightly less harsh tones.
  3. Most Republicans hate their own voters. They got into politics for their own personal aggrandizement and because of where they were born or who their parents were the GOP opened up more opportunities for advancement than the Democrats. That’s the only reason they’re Republicans in the first place. They don’t give a shit about the actual working-class Americans that make up their base.

Are all riots equal?

I have a hard time wrapping my head around someone who claims to be libertarian and gets outraged at citizens storming the capitol building while excusing or downplaying rioters burning and looting businesses.

I don’t condone violence and I think what happened yesterday in Washington is likely to be counterproductive toward any advance of liberty in this country. However, if you are upset with the State (which is aggressive by its very nature), it’s at least “less bad” morally to attack a State facility than it is to burn down a restaurant or gas station. You’re going after the actual aggressor not just lashing out at innocent bystanders.

Let’s also not forget that while they invaded “the People’s House” and disrupted a session of Congress, they did very little damage and the only person killed was one of the unarmed MAGA protesters who was shot by a police officer. So the selective outrage over this particular “violence” is somewhat hypocritical, to say the least after what we saw over the summer in cities around the country.

And I certainly don’t feel bad for the Congressmen and their staffers who were scared, poor babies. 99% of them are evil sociopaths who routinely vote to condone violence and tyranny around the world. They deserve a little discomfort. I feel much more sympathy for a small business owner who saw his life’s work go up in flames.
