☕️ Coffee & Covid ☙ Thursday, March 24, 2022 ☙ RUSSIA-CHINA-INDIA 🦠
Moderna seeks EUA for subpar shot; Clinton/Obama catch Covid; Biden forges a world alliance of enemies.
Good morning and happy Thursday, C & C! We’re almost through my vacation week, with all its many adventures in blogging on tiny handheld devices, and very soon we will be back to the normal schedule.
🗞COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY 🗞
🔥 In case you missed it, the Epoch Times reported on us this week: https://link.theepochtimes.com/mkt_app/volunteers-set-up-national-legal-network-to-help-covid-patients-families-in-dire-circumstances_4354229.html
🔥 Moderna published the results of its trials on kids aged 6 to 11, which found efficacy rates between 37% and 43%. On those results, the drug maker intends to request emergency use authorization from the FDA. Some of you may be old enough to remember when Fauci told us that an efficacy rate of 50% was the MINIMUM efficacy for approval of a vaccine. How times change!
I have a question. If emergency use authorization only applies during an emergency, how are the EUA vaccines still viable? It’s been over two years. Everybody agrees the pandemic is over, and we are learning to “live with Covid.” When do these EUA licenses expire?
🔥 Hillary Clinton, Jen Psaki, and Barack Hussein Obama all tested positive for Covid this week. But not Joe. I guess he wasn’t invited to the meetup. Maybe he was taking a nap?
All three were, of course, allegedly triple jabbed. This is Jen Psaki’s second bout with Covid in just a few months, since she was out for a week in October with a positive test. But, thank goodness for the shots, without which she probably would have gotten Covid two or three more times since then.
You may recall that Jen Psaki used to work for Hillary Clinton in 2014 as Clinton’s state department spokeslady. And, again coincidentally, 2014 was the year Zelenski was installed during Ukraine’s color revolution with US help. Just saying.
🔥 US officials ratcheted up The War yesterday by declaring that Russia has committed war crimes in Ukraine by intentionally targeting civilian infrastructure lacking any military connection. Russia denies it.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry told US Ambassador John Sullivan that “such statements from the American president, unworthy of a statesman of such high rank, put Russian–American relations on the verge of breaking.”
Like the United States, Russia does not recognize the jurisdiction of the international criminal court. Which raises the question, why make these kinds of announcements if it’s not actually going to go anywhere? It just invites Russia to start issuing counter declarations about all the United States’ war crimes in the various countries in which the United States conducts military operations. How about when when president Obama’s drone strikes took out a wedding in Afghanistan? Why invite this kind of scrutiny? Is it intentional?
One wonders. If you were TRYING to dismantle American exceptionalism it’s hard to imagine a better way than by officially pointing the war crimes finger at everybody else. Oh well! Never underestimate Joe’s ability to… you know the rest.
🚀 THE MINORITY REPORT 🚀
🔥 Speaking of Hillary, USA Today recently fact checked a rumor making the rounds lately that Ukraine was the single largest donor to the Clinton foundation. In fact, there is a graph I have seen several times showing Ukraine at the tippy-top of a list of donors.
USA Today says the chart is nonsense. A total fabrication. It rates the claim as five Pinocchio‘s. Now, USA Today DOES grudgingly allow that a Ukrainian billionaire IS the largest Clinton foundation donor, and that the billionaire has “extensive“ ties to the Ukrainian government. But TECHNICALLY the money didn’t come DIRECTLY from the government, you see, so that proves it, fact check false!
Isn’t it nice to have fact checkers on payroll, watching your back?
🔥 One secondary theory making the rounds these days is that the Chi-Coms and the Sov-Coms are hooking up to oppose the WEF’s great reset agenda. To be clear, this is completely in the realm of theory, and I usually eschew theories in favor of facts.
But it does appear to be a fact that the Chinese clearly appear to be quietly supporting Russia in The War. And the geniuses in charge are just ratcheting up the rhetoric some more, now threatening China as well as Russia.
Last week, NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg told reporters that China had better check itself, and called China the worst possible thing:
“We face a fundamentally changed security environment where authoritarian powers are increasingly prepared to use force to get their way. Beijing has joined Moscow in questioning the right of independent nations to choose their own path. China has provided Russia with political support, including by spreading blatant lies and MISINFORMATION."
Misinformation! China is a misinformer! They are misinforming people! And you know what happens to misinformers. It’s going to be Facebook jail for you, China.
🔥 The Guardian UK ran an article this morning headlined, “Rift over Ukraine exposed as high-powered UK delegation to India called off.” It seems that India’s Prime Minister told the British diplomatic delegation to bugger off.
The British were expected to pressure India over its failure to oppose The War. Instead, India appears to be in talks with Russia over combining payment systems. It’s a good thing the U.S. has a lock on the world’s financial systems.
🔥 In solidarity with Ukraine, and massively signaling their virtue, VISA and Mastercard pulled out of Russia a few weeks ago. So China saw the opportunity, jetted in and linked up its UnionPay system with Russia's Mir payments system.
And now Venezuela is in talks to link its crappy third-world system to Mir, too. But still, it’s the communist country from which Biden wants to buy our replacement oil. It’ll be getting lots of US bucks soon. Which it can then transfer to Russia, apparently.
Good thing for the communists that VISA and Mastercard are all woke and virtuous and stuff and put principle over profit. Otherwise it might have been hard to convince Russian consumers to switch. Now they would probably crawl over broken glass to sign up with any different payment system — even if it were designed by a Nigerian prince who just needs some help getting his money out of the country.
I’m sure all that WEF stuff is just a conspiracy theory, but one of the group’s publicly stated aims is to eliminate the United States as the world’s superpower. I wonder what they would have to do to accomplish that goal? Just asking.
🔥 Representative Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, warned Fox News yesterday about an "unholy alliance" between Russia and China, saying the coordination between the two nations "will pose a lot of problems" for the United States and the West.
Problems. You don’t say. Plus, he left out India, Mexico, Brazil, and Venezuela. That could cause some problems too.
Wait! I forgot a couple. McCaul warned Fox that "this is the beginning of a serious alliance that will pose a lot of problems, and then you throw Iran in the mix and North Korea."
If Biden sanctions China, our current supply chain issues will have just been the warmup act. "Whether it be semiconductors, medical, rare earth minerals — our economies are too intertwined, that going after China with similar sanctions we are with Russia will be far more difficult to achieve," McCaul told Fox News.
It’s all going great! You don’t think the same geniuses who came up with a pandemic to stop an election would go for a world war to stop an election, do you?
I know, I know, it’s just a silly conspiracy theory. But silly conspiracy theories are doing pretty well these days.
Have a terrific Thursday, and I’ll catch you back here again tomorrow morning.
You can help get the truth out and spread optimism and hope:
