Happy Hump-Day, C&Cers. Hope you’re enjoying your daylight savings! We have a great roundup for you today, featuring a new Operation Multiplier assignment, and: the Senate votes 57-40 to end plane mask mandates; Kamala's jabbed husband catches Covid; Spring Break spike stories may be good news; WaPo rebukes school mask mandates; Thailand starts paying jab injury claims; thoughts about the reckoning; Miami-Dade swings 28 points; Biden bans Russian gas; Russia sponsors climate change; and India flees into Putin's welcoming arms.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 OPERATION MULTIPLIER: Our next Operation Multiplier candidate is a good one. Representative Joe Harding sponsored the Parent’s Rights in Education bill that just passed the Florida Legislature and bans sexual instruction without express parental consent in all grade levels below fourth grade. It seems like common sense, but not to national leftist groups who are now savaging the young Republican representative, slandering his bill as an intentional attack on the LGBTQQIP2SAA community. Whatever that is. They even made up a hateful name for the bill that the national media routinely uses instead of the bill’s real name.
So let’s multiply him!
We are sending a message to the national leftist groups. Attack good legislators for doing the right thing and then we’ll stand up for them. And by working together, the load is trivial for any one of us. We need EVERYONE to chip in, even if you’re not in Florida. Florida is moving the bar right now, fast and big time.
Do it RIGHT NOW in any amount ending in $2, so he knows it was C&C supporting this bill. Hopefully he’ll be encouraged to sponsor more bills like this one, and not discouraged by leftwing attacks.
You can give just $2, or $12, or $22 or whatever. Here’s the link: https://secure.anedot.com/joe-harding-campaign/donate. I’ll wait. I’ll be right here when you get back. It only takes a second. (Note: it’s not WinRed.)
Did you do it? Go back and do it if you didn’t!! It’s cheaper than a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Even small donations encourage candidates by showing support. And everyone reports feeling GREAT after joining Operation Multiplier. You will too!
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
😷 Hahaha, slow Joe was too slow this time! He should’ve ended airplane mask mandates when he had the chance, but now Rand Paul could get the credit. In an article late last night, CNN’s headline was “Senate Votes To Repeal Travel Mask Mandates In Bipartisan Rebuke Of Biden Administration Policy.”
CNN called it a rebuke. Think about that.
The Biden Administration has been slow-walking the end of the airplane mask mandate, recently extending it through April 18th, ostensibly to allow the CDC time to create an incomprehensible and complicated flowchart or something, which my eleven-year old son could have knocked out in under twenty minutes.
The Senate’s final vote against the mandate was 57-40, with eight Democrats joining Republicans in favor of Senator Rand Paul’s resolution. (Only one GOP senator voted for keeping the mandate: Mitt Romney of Utah. Ugh. We should mail him some masks or something.) CNN’s article suggested the Democrats who voted against the mandate are up for re-election this year, implying that it recognizes voters do NOT want masks on planes.
Surprisingly, CNN favorably quoted a republican, Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi, who said “when the rules of government do not comply with common sense, it offends free Americans to have to abide by some silly rule and you can expect the objections we’re hearing from the public.”
You’d think CNN would immediately follow a quote like that with a rebuttal quote, but guess what’s missing from the article? The reflexive endorsement of mask science or any citation to any “expert” claiming masks are “generally effective.” Nothing. Not one word about mask efficacy. Isn’t that interesting?
The House is not expected to join in approving the measure, but you never know. We’ll see. But, the Senate Republicans’ continued pressure seems to be getting somewhere.
🔥 Kamala Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff has tested positive for Covid, according to wide media reports. Harris skipped a large White House “Equal Pay” event yesterday, leading many to speculate that she also may be experiencing symptoms. Both are triple boosted, allegedly. It was definitely not a saline injection. You can trust them.
In remarks yesterday, Biden reported “the First Lady’s husband” had tested positive. Somebody had to tell him.
🔥 This next story isn’t what it looks like at first. The New York Post ran an article yesterday headlined, “COVID and flu may spike amid spring break partying across US, experts say.”
Hahaha! You’re probably thinking, oh no, the media is never ever going to let Covid go. But that’s not it. It’s actually good news. The giveaway is the combination with flu. Covid AND flu “may” spike during Spring Break.
It’s the exact opposite of Covid alarmism. Covid is now fading into the noisy background of scare stories the media runs every single season, and which nobody ever really notices. They have to print SOMETHING. They couldn’t just do a regular “flu” story for spring break, because that would be weird, you HAVE to throw Covid in there too.
The “expert” quoted for the story explained she “expects to see cases of COVID as well as the flu rise again following spring break festivities throughout March and April — and going forward for years to come … every year there’s a blip after spring break.”
So. It’s not evidence that Covid is here to stay. It’s evidence people don’t really care anymore. It’s an “every year” thing now.
🔥 How long have you been waiting to see something like THIS? Yesterday, the Washington Post, of all places, ran a story headlined, “These Schools Did Less To Contain Covid. Their Students Flourished.”
Flourished! By doing LESS! You read that right. Hades has frozen over, or something.
The article drives an anecdotal stake through the demonic heart of school mask mandates.
It reports that “thousands of school districts — typically small ones in conservative-leaning counties” re-opened fast, stayed open full-time, and eschewed mask mandates in favor of recommendations. And, the article suggests, students in open schools did better academically than students in closed, mandated schools. Just as you would expect. And they didn’t experience Covid outbreaks or deaths or whatever.
WaPo stopped short of drawing the ultimate conclusion, the strongly implied opposing conclusion: that students in closed mandate schools SUFFERED academically, for no benefit in Covid stats. WaPo must feel SAYING IT would just be too much, too soon. But corporate media is clearly trying to shut down school masking, which is still the hottest issue activating previously apolitical people.
🔥 This isn’t too good for Narrative 2.0. The Phnom Penh Post in Cambodia ran a story last Thursday headlined, “Thailand To Pay $45M Over Vaccine Side-Effects.”
I know, right! You, like me, probably thought the safe and effective jabs were completely harmless. Because media and that slippery reptile Fauci said so.
(Where IS Fauci, anyway?)
The article explained Thailand’s National Health Security Office (NHSO) has so far paid 1.509 billion baht ($45.65 million) as compensation to 12,714 people who developed “side-effects” after they received Covid-19 vaccines.
Side-effects. You know, like a sore arm and stuff, I guess. I have to guess because you can’t tell from the article, because it was too chicken to report what some of the claims looked like. But at those numbers, I’m guessing there’s some hair-raising stuff in that Thai claims database. If only we had a massive federal public health agency that would be interested in taking a look. Wouldn’t that be helpful? We might find something useful out. Oh well.
Remember all the people who told you the shots were COMPLETELY safe. Remember them. The day of reckoning WILL come. We’ll abide till then. And make lists.
🔥 Superstar reporter Julie Kelly, who recently wrote a book about the January 6th “Insurrection,” penned an article for American Greatness yesterday headlined, “From 15 Days to Two Years.”
Here’s my favorite line: “The most technologically advanced civilization in the history of mankind quickly adopted medieval fixes that bordered on quackery, sold by snake oil salesmen in the credentialied class and news media, codified through executive fiat by elected leaders of both parties.”
Haha! Yes! That, and she refers to Fauci as a charlatan and Birx as a dunce. That tickled me too.
It’s a great article, and I recommend it to you. But I disagree with Julie on one point. She thinks the benefits the left derived from the pandemic will ensure they’ll try it again. But I’m not so sure.
The reckoning has only begun. Look at Virginia. The reckoning isn’t universal. It’s not definitive. And it’s not over yet. Admittedly, while the left’s gains haven’t completely matured, they are starting to backpedal, hard. Trying to distract us with new emergencies. Trying to dump Covid down the memory hole. Hanging on to emergency powers. But, as I said, the reckoning is only getting started. I think the left is about to take a shellacking like nobody alive has ever seen.
Go ahead. Keep trying to reset us. It’s going to backfire on you, badly. There’s a reason politicians usually don’t do extreme things, dummy. You have our full attention now.
📈 And just like that, another bit of evidence I’m right floated down the news river. Breitbart ran an article yesterday headlined, “Poll: Democrat Miami-Dade County Approves of Ron DeSantis, 28 Point Swing.”
I want you to think about that for a second. A TWENTY-EIGHT POINT SWING from blue to red. In one of the bluest counties in the country, Miami-Dade. It’s like South Manhattan down there.
The article reports that in 2018, crack-addled gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum won in Miami-Dade by +21%. Biden won the county +7% in 2020. Now, a recent poll shows DeSantis at a 48% approval rating, with only 41% disapproving.
“I think the poll confirms what we’ve seen,” pollster Fernand Amandi told the Miami Herald. “For Democrats to enjoy the type of margins that they’ve historically been accustomed to in Miami-Dade, they need to go back to basics.”
A Miami Herald article about the poll quotes the same pollster explaining, “These numbers should serve as the ultimate wake-up call for Democrats looking to knock off DeSantis or Marco Rubio in 2022, because Gillum carried Miami-Dade County by 21 points in 2018. And yet, here, 48% of Miami-Dade voters say DeSantis deserves to be reelected.”
The ultimate wake-up call. So.
🚀 *THE MINORITY REPORT* 🚀
🔥 Under pressure from media and both US political parties, Biden announced yesterday that he is calling for a ban on all Russian energy products. “Today I am announcing the United States is targeting the main artery of Russia’s economy. We’re banning all imports of Russian oil and gas and energy,” Biden explained. So far, his sanctions have exempted Russian energy products.
Following Biden’s announcement, the House immediately votes to approve the ban on Russian oil and energy product imports.
Biden admitted the step was likely to lead to even higher costs for Americans, which CNN described as “a potent political issue that is already leading to attacks from Republicans.” Too bad we already created massive inflation by printing all those Covid bucks last year. We’re in for some historic price hikes now.
Biden also announced the development of new technology that will allow consumers to fill out loan applications right at the pump in order to finance gas purchases. You can get a mortgage and gas at the same time, with only a little more waiting. Haha, just kidding.
Horrible inflation won’t be good for Dems in the 2022 midterms. Biden’s attempt to blame Putin won’t work, either.
🔥 Fox ran an interesting explainer yesterday, headlined “Russia Duped Europe Into Energy Dependence By Funding ‘Rabid Environmental Groups’: Experts.” The subhead explains, “Russians actually fund some of the most rabid environmental groups in Europe.”
The gist is that Russia has been creating or supporting anti-energy environmental groups in Europe and the U.S. to stop everyone from developing their own sources of energy, like shale gas.
The article reports that 15 years ago, Europe produced more natural gas than Russia, but all that changed as Russia increased its natural gas production and Europe reduced it. “Europe decided not to frack in large part due to CLIMATE ACTIVISTS,” the expert explained.
Unsurprisingly, it also happened here in the U.S.. WikiLeaks published a private 2016 email from Hilary Clinton, where she’d written, “We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, ‘Oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you,’ and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia.”
One of the first things Joe Biden did after getting hold of the executive pen was to shut down U.S. fracking. Just like Putin wants. Just saying.
🔥 Seems like India is rebuking Biden too. During his presidency, Trump made huge progress in building bridges to India, a key strategic ally in a geographic region dominated by our two biggest enemies: Russia and China. Upon taking office, Biden promptly destroyed our goodwill with India and quickly turned them hostile to the U.S., in a way that only Joe can do.
The predicable result? Another boon for Putin. Recently the Economist printed an article headlined, “Why won’t India’s government condemn Vladimir Putin?” It features a headline picture showing India’s president embracing a smiling Putin.
The gist is that India has officially abstained from condemning the Ukraine invasion, continues to buy energy products and weapons from the Russians, and is not participating in sanctions. On March 3rd, a State Department official briefed Congress that the Biden Administration was considering whether to punish India for its reliance on Russian arms and equipment.
That would be profoundly stupid, and would only push India closer to Russia, providing it with a huge ally in the emerging world conflict. Which almost guarantees that Joe will do it. He can’t resist. As former president Obama once said, never underestimate Joe’s ability to screw things up. Except he didn’t say “screw.”
