Happy Thursday, C&C! Today we have a neat roundup including: Pfizer’s huge win at the Academy Awards; Florida’s anti-grooming bill blows up leftists; Bruce Willis retires from acting; Fauci tells the BBC about lockdown costs; J6 committee feels contemptuous; California tables a mandate bill; and Gov. DeSantis calls for another special session.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 A quick update: I have been trying to get intel on how the Mit mask mailer turned out, but I lack contacts in Utah and it’s been slow going. I’ll find out.
🪖 On Tuesday, Media Matters, an extreme leftwing marxist “fact checking” site, published a hit piece on County Citizens Defending Freedom. CCDF is a new post-pandemic non-partisan group prioritizing parents’ rights, fair elections, and individual freedom issues. I’ve been helping CCDF for almost a year now. I liked what CCDF was doing because to me, a county-level approach is the most effective way to Save America. The county-by-county electoral map clearly shows that the vast majority of counties in the U.S. are conservative. The real opportunity to create change lives at the local level.
Anyway, Media Matters has its leather panties all in a twist because CCDF is being effective at removing pornographic material from school libraries in Polk County, Florida. It’s the worst thing EVER, according to the fact-checkers. They put a lot of work into their hit piece, and I don’t know what you think, but to me it reads like a nice promo ad for the new activist group.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🔥 Pfizer is giddily popping Champagne over its HUGE win at the Academy Awards this week. Check out this crazy timeline:
• Between December 2020 and December 2021: VAERS receives over 3,000 reports of vaccine-induced alopecia after first or second dose of Pfizer Covid vaccine.
• February 2021: Arena Pharmaceuticals begins third round clinical trials for its new drug, Etrasimod, which treats alopecia.
• December 2021: Pfizer buys Arena Pharmaceuticals for $7 billion. (Arena’s website is gone now, swallowed up by Pfizer; use the Wayback Machine if you go looking.)
• March 23, 2022: Pfizer issues a press release announcing “Positive Top-Line Results for Phase 3 Trial of Etrasimod” (now called Ritlecitinib).
• March 27, 2022: The Academy Awards begin, sponsored by Pfizer.
… Chris Rock makes a joke about Jada Smith’s alopecia at the Academy Awards.
… Will Smith sissy-slaps Chris Rock on live TV and acts very put out, and says some non-family-friendly stuff, but gets the award anyway. And gets to keep it. And doesn’t have to take anger management.
… For the next few weeks, corporate media becomes fascinated with alopecia, how it hurts women, and why Jada Smith was so understandably upset about the joke. If only there were a safe and effective treatment! And, everybody’s talking about the Oscars. Bonus.
I’m not saying Chris and Will faked the slap. Who knows? But it sure was a great night for sponsor Pfizer, a real marketing coup. My gosh, Pfizer is on a roll — it was so lucky that Chris Rock told THAT exact joke, and THAT exact joke made Will Smith mad enough to act out so totally uncharacteristically and coincidentally promoted Pfizer’s new $7B medication that treats a painfully obvious side-effect of its Covid drug. I mean, what are the odds!
🔥 The story about Florida’s new Parent’s Rights law is blowing up. First, Governor DeSantis signed the bill into law on Monday, causing sexual freedom groups to start ripping their hair out in clumps and making corporate media lose its hive-like mind. Then yesterday, Joe Biden told Education Secretary Xavier Gonzalez to investigate Florida’s new law to see if it violates gay people’s federal civil rights. Democrat governor Gavin Newsom took a break from figuring out new ways to torture Californians to tweet an unintentionally hilarious picture of himself reading “banned books,” including in a staged stack of books some that have been banned in California, like To Kill a Mockingbird. Haha.
In an MSNBC interview, a gay Florida teacher interviewed said he’s feeling all short of breath because he’s TERRIFIED of the new bill since he won’t be allowed to chat with his young students about his gay love life anymore: “It scares me that I am not going to be able to have these conversations with my children…”. Maybe he calls them HIS children since, given his lifestyle, it’s not likely he’ll have any of his own. Variety reported that, supposedly to protest the Florida law, Pixar’s animators leapt to ink a lesbian kiss into the studio’s upcoming Toy Story sequel, “Lightyear.” Take that, Florida.
For its part, the Disney corporation snatched up the rainbow flag to become the unheroic face of opposition to the newly-passed law. On Tuesday, the entertainment giant announced its new “corporate goal” is to repeal the law or get it overturned, and has suspended its river of campaign donations to republicans in the state. Which in turn caused Florida’s republican voters to throw parties and send each other celebratory gifts.
Wait … should we send Disney thank-you cards for stopping campaign donations to Florida republicans? Let me know what you think in the comments.
First-term Florida House representative Joe Harding, who sponsored the bill, and who Coffee & Covid multiplied with campaign donations recently, announced yesterday he is sending back $3,126 in Disney political donations. “Disney is no longer the company Walt Disney founded,” Harding explained in news reports. “If Disney is now the enemy of parents, then Disney is now my enemy.”
💉 Bruce Willis’ family announced yesterday the beloved 67-year-old actor is “stepping away” from acting. He’s been diagnosed with aphasia, a condition arising from brain injuries like strokes and blood clots that, among other things, affects the ability to communicate and other cognitive abilities, to the point Willis can’t make his own announcement, apparently.
Aphasia is one of the adverse effects on Pfizer’s list of conditions of special interest, and some published studies have reported aphasia developing after the second injection. On the other hand, the LA Times ran a quick story alleging that Bruce has been in decline for years, with anecdotal quotes from people who claim he couldn’t remember his lines, etc. But he was still working, a lot. And it is not at all clear that the more significant issues began prior to 2021. I report, you decide.
💉 In bad news for jab lovers, a bill working through California’s legislature, AB1993, which would have required private businesses in California to mandate Covid vaccination, has been mercifully tabled. The bill, opposed by California’s public unions, is no longer needed because of the receding pandemic, according to state assemblywoman Buffy Wicks. So.
🪳 In an interview with the BBC yesterday, fallen star and monkey torturer Tony Fauci was asked about whether the lockdowns were worth it. He said “I don’t think we’re ever going to be able to determine” whether the “unintended negative consequences” outweighed the benefits in reducing hospitalizations and deaths.
Who wants to tell him? We already know, Tony. The lockdowns weren’t worth it.
🔥 The House January 6th Committee recommended contempt charges against Trump advisors Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino, who both invoked executive privilege against testifying before the committee. The loopy committee members, hastily assembled from the majority party’s bottom tier, believe that the riot at the Capitol on January 6th was an insurrection ten times worse than the Civil War, and hope to reverse the political outcome of that calamitous conflict which created the Republican Party.
🔥 After vetoing the legislature’s redistricting map, Governor DeSantis yesterday announced that he is calling a special session to re-address redistricting, and he asked the legislature to also consider a “constitutional carry” law allowing law-abiding Florida citizens to carry concealed firearms without a permit. A data privacy law was another priority he said he’d like to see addressed. So.
Have a terrific Thursday, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for more.
