☕️ Coffee & Covid ☙ Thursday, March 17, 2022 ☙ PARENTS’ RIGHTS, MULTIPLIED 🦠
CDC wants a perpetual state of emergency; great multiplier news; a Mit mass mask mailing project; UF didn't falsify data, but UF professors falsified allegations; sudden unexpected deaths; and more...
Feedback on yesterday’s multiplier; a new C&C Army Assignment by popular request; British Airways modifies its mask mandate; UF is cleared of charges of falsifying Covid data; several sudden and unexpected deaths; a UK investigation admits a Covid death; and the CDC says it needs a perpetual state of emergency to do its job.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 OPERATION MULTIPLIER: We did it! Yesterday, C&C multiplied candidate and Florida Representative Joe Harding, who sponsored the Parents’ Rights in Education bill that bans sex ed below fourth grade. Around mid-morning yesterday Mr. Harding called my office to personally thank us for (now) over $55,000 in donations from over 3,000 Coffee & Covid army members. That is a SIGNIFICANT amount for a state house campaign AND it’s a record-breaking event.
Harding told me that at first, when the donations began flooding in, they thought they were being hacked, which tells you a lot about where their heads are at these days. He said their Facebook page has been blown out with hateful posts — almost all of which are outside his district — and that they’ve been getting nonstop phone calls from deranged people foaming at the mouth and screaming “Gay!” at his staff.
Harding told me that our effort was a huge encouragement to him and his team at a dark time, and he is sustained by his faith.
I have three observations. Point one: The leftists tried to cancel one of our folks standing up for parents’ rights, and we multiplied him. We’ll keep doing it until they get the message.
Two: we also sent a message to our side. Do the right thing, and we’ll have your back when they come for you. And it’s not just the money we raised for Harding yesterday. Harding can now fund raise off our support, since in politics, success breeds success. He can show other potential donors how many people have already donated to and are supporting his campaign — numbers that dwarf most other candidates.
Three: this is the power of the army! None of us individually could have given him $55K. But working together, making affordable individual donations, taking less than two minutes each, we easily blew it out in ONE DAY. I am SO proud of all of you. Our teamwork didn’t just encourage Harding. We are also encouraging ourselves. Doesn’t it feel great?
If for whatever reason you missed your chance to help out yesterday, here’s the link again: https://secure.anedot.com/joe-harding-campaign/donate. Do it right now, in an amount ending in a ‘2’, like $2, $12, $22, or even $22.22. You can also leave a note of encouragement and thanks on Harding’s campaign web page, which I am sure his team would appreciate: https://joeharding.net.
🪖 Reckless dog owner Mit Romney was the only GOP senator voting to KEEP airplane masking this week. So gross. I made an offhand remark yesterday in my post that caught fire in the comments, so I bow to the will of the army and am issuing new orders. Collect all your leftover masks — go to the shopping center parking lot and pick up discarded ones if you have to* — and ship them to Mr. Romney, since he loves masks so much. Let’s bless him with masks, so he never runs out.
(* just kidding about the used masks, send new or unused ones.)
Here’s the physical address for his Salt Lake City office: Senator Mit Romney, 125 S. State Street, Suite 8402, Salt Lake City, UT 84138. Please have them mailed no later than this Monday, March 21st. Feel free to post pics of your shipment before it goes out!
I’ll let my media contacts know about the C&C mass mask mailer so they can follow up with Romney’s office next week and see how well he’s enjoying them and if they fit his giant fat face and stuff.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
😷 It’s happening! One down. British Airways announced yesterday that it will drop its mask mandate effective yesterday, so long as destination requirements don’t mandate masks. Meaning, BA flights into the US will still be masked. You know. It’s complicated. The science varies from place to place. It’s a quantum effect. Don’t try to understand it.
BA’s twitter announcement features an attractive stewardess doing a “big reveal” by dramatically pulling off her mask. But her eyes are pleading, please don’t make me the anti-masking poster girl.
🔥 Thank goodness, it’s finally been settled. The Miami Herald, of all places, ran an article yesterday headlined, “UF Investigation Finds No Merit To Allegations Covid-19 Data Were Suppressed.” Whew.
So here’s how it started. Somebody “anonymously” reported that the University of Florida was involved in a vast right-wing conspiracy to fraudulently falsify the state’s Covid data in order to make Governor DeSantis look good, or spread misinformation, or kill grandma, or something. They were a little fuzzy on the details.
Anyway, a cartoonish marxist front-group at UF called the “UF Faculty Senate” somehow — “somehow” — got hold of the “anonymous” allegations and liberally reprinted them in Soviet-style reports excreted from its ironically-named “Ad Hoc Committee on Academic Freedom.” Who cares if it’s true! It’s PROBABLY true! And it advances the narrative!
So UF had to start an investigation, which was immediately derailed when, as the Herald reports, “the UF staffers who made the accusation refused to cooperate with the investigation.” So the investigation was off to a terrible start and it already seemed super sketchy and just like the communists, if you ask me. They like to eat the dinner but always scurry away on their insectile legs when it comes time to pay the bill.
“When the anonymous complaint occurred, it wasn’t clear what the problem was,” UF Vice President for Research David Norton said. “Without testimony the committee couldn’t zero in on what [the allegation] would be ... We would have benefited if those persons would have come forward to explain specifically what instances caused them to feel that way.”
Let me translate that for you. Norton is saying, delicately, that the anonymous staffers were located and asked to explain HOW the University was supposedly hiding or falsifying the Covid data, at which point they clammed up. Without knowing HOW the University was supposed to be hiding Covid data, it was hard to figure out exactly where to start looking.
The Herald reported, again generically, that “UF investigators concluded that the allegations made in December 2021 likely stemmed from a state health department official who expressed concerns in October 2020 about the university’s use and management of Florida’s COVID-19 data.”
A “state health department official.” Hahahaha! You know who they’re talking about? The disgruntled and disgraced ex-employee Rebekah Jones, if that’s her real name. The one with the extended criminal history and well-publicized mental-health problems. The one who was arrested for unauthorized access into the state’s computer system after she was fired. That one.
So. Now we can put the whole story together. Here’s what happened: some idiot on the Faculty Senate read one of Rebekah Jones’ deranged tweets and “reported it” to the “Ad Hoc Committee” which started parroting it IN PRINT as revealed wisdom. Marxists so love their committees. And remember, these are the same loony people teaching our kids even though they aren’t qualified to run a boiled peanut stand, much less hold overpaid tenured academic positions. Somebody PLEASE figure out how to demarxify the universities. Or let’s create a parallel system. Something.
And, to you dummies on the Ad Hoc Committee: You realize you’ll be the first ones up against the wall if the marxists ever actually get control, right? PLEASE try to think. I know it’s hard. Just TRY.
💉 The Daily Mail UK reported yesterday that a 9-year old Utah boy suddenly and unexpectedly died in his sleep Saturday. This week’s autopsy found no cause of death. It just happened. No reason. Life is weird and tragic sometimes. Our prayers are with the family, who are dealing with a loss inconceivable to most modern minds.
The Mail reports that young Logan’s family is LDS (outside the church, Mormon). The LDS church in Utah pushes vaccines to the extent it has caused division in the membership, so we can guess they took every precaution to protect him from Covid. So we can rule Covid out, at least.
💉 The Baltimore Sun ran an article this week headlined, “Kobe Young, a Towson football running back with infectious smile, dies at 23: ‘He just lit up a room’.”
“The biggest thing for me was, every time you would leave him, he would give you a handshake and say, ‘I love you’ … There was never a frown on his face,” said friend and defensive tackle Vinnie Shaffer. Tigers coach Rob Ambrose said he remembered Kobe for his infectious optimism. “Kobe was just one of those guys where if you saw Kobe, he would put a smile on your face … He was a real positive guy.” he said.
Kobe would’ve graduated in May with a bachelor’s in health care management and a minor in business administration.
The long article describes Kobe’s wonderful, happy personality and amazing life prospects, tragically cut short. The world is worse off without him. But the Sun does NOT mention a cause of death, at all, or whether he was protected from Covid by the safe and effective vaccine. It’s just another one of those great mysteries; we’ll find out in the next life. 🙏
💉 The Knoxville News reported last week that 28-year old Knoxville teacher Eric Robertson died “suddenly and unexpectedly” Monday night while playing basketball. I guess it WAS unexpected or he wouldn’t have been playing basketball, would he?
Robertson was a well-liked, happy and optimistic teacher. “He had a wonderful smile, that’s the thing that I think all of us came back to,” Powell High School principal Chad Smith said. “He always would talk to anyone and everyone and it’s the smile. He reached students in ways that others could not.”
No word on a cause of death. Maybe it was too cold. Or maybe he ate too much junk food. Bad genetics. No way to tell, really. It’s affecting younger and younger people these days. It’s definitely not the safe and effective vaccine.
Robertson left behind a beautiful young wife and child. Here’s a GoFundMe for him set up by the residents of the Department of Medicine: https://tinyurl.com/2p886a5p.
💉 BBC News reported yesterday that a year-long official investigation has finally found that 34-year-old Kim Lockwood of South Yorkshire died from a catastrophic brain bleed caused by her safe and effective Covid vaccine. The official diagnosis was Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, and her death was recorded as an unlucky accident, or “misadventure” as the brits say.
In fact, South Yorkshire Coroner Nicola Mundy was quoted saying, Mrs Lockwood had been “extremely unlucky”. You don’t say! That’s exactly what I’VE been doing for the last year; I’ve been trying to avoid becoming unlucky like Mrs Lockwood.
Lockwood was also unlucky in that she lives in a country with socialized healthcare, as the investigation noted that (1) she initially had to leave the ER because the wait was too long and she wasn’t properly triaged, (2) although should could not complete a full sentence and was throwing up from her headaches, she was never given an MRI, and (3) the hospital did not provide pain management although Lockwood’s final words were the pain from the “headache is actually killing me.”
So. Let’s NOT do the single-payer thing, mmmkay? Is it too much to ask?
The BBC article ends saying “the government has repeatedly stated that the benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks in the majority of people.” Hmm. So, I might get a virus with a 99.97% survival rate, or take the shot and possibly die in agony. How do you calculate odds like that? Do you think Kim Lockwood would agree the benefits outweigh the risks? Wish I could ask her.
📉 The Epoch Times ran an article yesterday headlined, “CDC Warns Agency Would Lose Access to Key Data If Emergency Declaration Ends.”
It’s something about how the state of emergency provides mechanisms for the CDC to receive information from the states or something. The idea being, if we end the state of emergency there is NO WAY the CDC could get the information any other way. They tried to think of a way but … nothing. They came up empty. No way to do it. It’s hopeless.
“If people want CDC to be responsible, to be able to report in a timely fashion, in a quick fashion, we have to have the authority to collect those data,” Dr. Walensky told CBS’s 60 Minutes.
Let me translate for you. The CDC will lose all its magical powers to tell cruise ships and airlines and kindergartners what to do if the state of emergency ends. And what government bureaucracy likes surrendering power? The goofy scientists at the CDC have a taste for it now and they aren’t giving it up easily. We’re going to have to pry it out of their clammy hands along with all those sweaty needles.
Dr. Walensky, here’s the thing. We don’t WANT the CDC to be responsible for this anymore. You failed the first time and every subsequent time. Earn the trust back before you ask for more.
Have a terrific Thursday! I’ll see ya’ll back here tomorrow for more.
