🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🍽️ I met a BUNCH of well-known doctors in Ocala for dinner last night. The speakers’ group met up to get to know each other and handle some advance logistics for today’s event on Covid-19 and Medicine in Ocala, Florida. As the token lawyer at the dinner, I thought I held my own pretty well.
The sold-out event, originally capped at 500 attendees, was expanded this week to 850 and — blam — immediately sold out again. They also added a streaming version, and I’ve been told a ton of folks from around the world signed up, especially from Canada and Australia.
It is really saying something that in 2021, doctors and lawyers draw big crowds.
The terrific speakers’ lineup includes Doctors Robert Malone, Peter McCullough, Ryan Cole, Ben Marble, Pierre Kory, and others. The docs are slated to speak about Kids and Vaccines, Natural Immunity, Cases and Controversies, and Early Treatment Options. As the lunch attraction, I’ll be explaining medical and religious exemptions to Covid-19 mandates.
It’s going to be great. I’m sure the event will be posted on one of the streaming services and I will make sure you guys get a link.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🦸♂️ The State of Florida sued the Biden Administration over its patently-unconstitutional OSHA vaccine mandate yesterday in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. “We started with ’15 days to slow the spread’ and now it’s ‘get jabbed or lose your job’,” said DeSantis in a press release. “We’re supposed to be a government of laws, not a government of men. This OSHA rule is 500 pages of a government of bureaucracy, a government that is being run by executive edict, not a government bound by constitutional constraints.”
He gets it. Something like this should NEVER be passed by executive order. DeSantis continued, “There is no federal police power and the federal government cannot unilaterally impose medical policy under the guise of workplace regulation.” Exactly correct. A great argument.
“The remarkable ease at which this president will abandon the rule of law and separation of powers is astonishing and devastating to the autonomy of American workers,” said Attorney General Ashley Moody.
I like it. I think it’s a strong argument that a universal medical mandate can’t be passed by executive action. It should have gone through the legislature. We’re a democratic republic. At the least, our representatives should have voted on it first.
I’ll keep you posted as the case develops.
🔥 Uh-oh! The five remaining rebel school boards in Florida — Broward, Miami-Dade, Leon, Orange, and Alachua — had ANOTHER setback in court yesterday, this time in their lawsuit to overturn the Department of Health’s order giving parents an opt-out to forced face masks. In a lengthy and at times harsh order, the judge for the Division of Administrative Hearings dismissed the school boards’ lawsuit and took the counties to task.
Most legally significant, he held that the school boards are “subject to and must comply with the emergency rule.” So there. Now you’ve been told TWICE.
The judge seemed bewildered by the school boards’ irrational arguments. He said the school boards “argue that no immediate public health emergency exists to justify the Emergency Rule while simultaneously maintaining that the Emergency Rule prevents them from implementing more restrictive protocols that are necessary to keep children safe.” He’s right. That doesn’t add up.
But the judge’s findings related to Covid and kids were possibly the most important of all. First, he noted that Covid mainly strikes older folks: “COVID-19 infections can be extremely dangerous, but the risk of death and serious illness lies overwhelming with older people.”
He continued, “Children have died from COVID-19, but that outcome is extremely rare. The COVID-19 Situation Report case fatality rate for people under 16, and for people aged 16 to 29, is 0.0%.”
The fatality rate for kids is ZERO. The Court noted that this fact was UNDISPUTED.
Then he made some extremely significant findings about Covid: “The following additional opinions presented by Dr. Bhattacharya were well-supported and credible: (1) Children are unlikely to suffer serious side effects from COVID-19 despite the Delta variant; (2) the spread of COVID-19 from asymptomatic people is rare; and (3) children are inefficient transmitters of the disease.”
Finally, we have a court making these findings! I predict those findings are going to travel. If you’d like to read the whole thing, and you do, you can find a copy of the order here: https://tinyurl.com/8a66jher.
The school boards, still defiant, have appealed the decision. Of course! They think they’re smarter than TWO courts now. I don’t think this is going to end well for them.
🔥 In a newly-released powerpoint used by the FDA to approve Covid injections for kids 5-11, the agency explicitly estimates that under “Scenario One,” jabbing kids will prevent 67 ICU visits for Covid but will CAUSE 57 ICU visits for myocarditis per million kids vaccinated.
So in other words, we’re doing all this to save 10 ICU visits per million kids. And harming almost as many kids as we’re helping. Do the kids expected to be harmed get anything to say about it? I guess not. Stupid question.
But wait, it gets better. Under “Scenario 3” (low Covid transmission rates), it’s upside down. In kids 5-11, the FDA estimated preventing only seven (7) ICUs while still CAUSING 57 ICUs in the children for every million injected.
What can you even say about the minds who’ve concluded this is a good idea? This is what out-of-control utilitarianism looks like.

🤥 In a twitter announcement yesterday, discombobulated CDC head Rachelle Walensky — still apparently gripped by unshakeable feelings of impending doom — said that “Masks can help reduce your chance of COVID19 infection by more than 80%.”
What? More than 80%? What on earth is that woman babbling about? N-95 respirators? She didn’t say. And the CDC’s loopy director failed to cite her sources for this bit of suspicious wisdom. For some reason.
Remember what I said about the epidemic of paranoid schizophrenia.
🪳 In congressional hearings on Thursday, Senator Rand Paul took puppy-torturing mad scientist Anthony Fauci to the wood shed. “Dr. Fauci, I don’t expect you today to admit that you approved of NIH funding for a gain of function research in Wuhan, but your repeated denials have worn thin,” Paul told the weaselly octogenarian.
He pressed the point. “Until you accept responsibility, we’re not going to get anywhere close to trying to prevent another lab leak of this dangerous sort of experiment. You won’t admit that it’s dangerous, and for that lack of judgment, I think it’s time that you resign.”
How about that? Senator Paul and PETA finally have something in common. They both think the bioweapons-money-laundering NIAID head should resign.
Fauci gamely but unsuccessfully tried to defend himself, saying that under “the current definition that is currently applicable,” he wasn’t ACTUALLY up to his greasy neck in gain-of-function research. He was talking about the definition that the NIH changed on its website about ten minutes ago. Senator Paul wasn’t having any of it. “So what you’re doing is defining away gain of function. You’re simply saying it doesn’t exist because you changed the definition on the NIH website. This is terrible.”
Paul pressed the fiesty monkey scarer, pointing out what was painfully obvious to everyone watching. “The preponderance of evidence now points toward this coming from a lab and what you’ve done is change the definition on your website to try to cover your a** basically.”
🔥 Norway joined Florida a month ago and removed all its Covid restrictions. The Scandinavian country now has no vaccine passports, no mask mandates, and no social distancing rules. Guess what? Their seven-day rolling average of new deaths is lower than ever. Experts are baffled. Strange!
🔥 Speaking of strange, something weird is going on with Governor Gavin Newsom of California. He hasn’t been seen since October 27. News reports say the media-loving Governor is remaining out of sight to “deal with family obligations.” Okay. That explains nothing. He canceled a speaking slot at the recent European climate summit, on short notice, without explanation.
Oh. I almost forgot. Also on October 27, the last day he appeared in public, Newsom got his booster shot. You don’t think that … nah, couldn’t be.
🔥 Proctor & Gamble employees who don’t want to be injected made a viral video that threatens — but doesn’t quite threaten — to shut down the big manufacturer. “What you’ve already seen happen to the airline industry will soon happen to many other organizations,” says an anonymous worker in the video.
I wonder what “other organizations” she’s thinking about?
Have to run to prep for my presentation. Have a terrific weekend! I’ll see you guys back here on Monday to kick the week off right with another steaming cup of C&C.
