☕️ FOUR DYING NARRATIVES ☙ Tuesday, March 7, 2023 ☙ C&C NEWS 🦠
We’re about to find out what happens when a global mass-delusion wears off and common sense dusts itself off and climbs wearily out of the box democrats shoved it into.
Good morning and Happy Tuesday, C&C! It’s an all-good-news roundup.
I think we’re about to find out what happens when a global mass-delusion wears off and common sense dusts itself off and climbs wearily out of the box democrats shoved it into. Your roundup today includes four major narratives that — all of a sudden — appear to be collapsing under their own weight and under the heavy burden of common sense.
Get ready. It’s going to be great.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 But first, a bunch of folks have been asking about Saturday’s conference. If the faith-based event is something you’re interested in, remember it’s on PACIFIC TIME (in Idaho), and the conference’s live-streaming link is:
I’m speaking at 3:30pm PST (6:30pm EST).
🗞*COLLAPSING NARRATIVE NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🔥 Late last night, Fox News ran an article on its website headlined, “Tucker Carlson Releases Exclusive Jan. 6 Footage, Says Politicians, Media Lied About Sicknick, ‘QAnon Shaman’.” That’s an understatement.
On last evening’s show, Tucker Carlson released his team’s review of the Capitol Protest video in three segments. Tucker said what they’ve found “devastates” the democrat’s carefully-scripted “insurrection” narrative. The first segment, linked below, mainly focused on Jacob Chansley, the Navy veteran wearing the unique horned headdress that the liberal media dubbed the “QAnon Shaman.” Chansley got four years in prison.
The narrative-busting clip shows Chansley being helpfully escorted all around the interior of the Capitol by two or more Capital police officers. Be warned, it’s going to make you mad at how badly U.S. corporate media has wittingly lied to the entire world, facilitated by Nancy Pelosi and the House democrats, who are simply the very worst people in the world:
This clip alone should be enough to get Chansley out of jail. If government lawyers failed to provide this video to Chansley’s lawyer — and that sure looks like what happened — they broke the law (for which, unfortunately, they’ll never be prosecuted), and that failure should be sufficient evidence for Chansley to be released.
The second segment was about Brian Sicknick, the Capitol Police officer the media claimed was murdered on January 6th. Tucker’s team found video of Officer Sicknik healthy and active long AFTER the time media and democrats have claimed he was supposedly killed in an altercation with protestors:
Even worse, Tucker discovered that the Sicknick clip had been electronically flagged by the democrats’ January 6th Committee investigators, proving they knew about it, but intentionally obscured that evidence, allowing the media’s false narrative to flower.
The third segment focused on Ray Epps and a couple Republican congressman who’d been falsely accused by democrats of being somehow “involved” in the January 6th protest. First, Tucker’s team found plenty of video showing that probable FBI asset and instigator Ray Epps stuck around doing his thing at the Capitol grounds for at least a full half hour after the time he’d falsely testified to the Committee that he’d gone back to his hotel.
The third segment video also proved that Representative Barry Loudermilk wasn’t even at the Capitol, as democrats have alleged, and proved Senator Josh Hawley never “fled” the Capitol, in a short clip that can now be recognized to have been taken wildly out of context.
The Fox article said Representative Thomas Massie (R-Ky) cited a poll showing that an overwhelming majority of Americans — including most Democrats — want ALL the January 6 footage to be released. Massie also called for a “complete catalog of all the feds who were there” in order to get to the bottom of their involvement in the riot.
House Republicans can make those things happen, and they must make those things happen. If releasing the video somehow compromises Capitol security by giving away cameras locations, then they should just move the silly cameras around or add some new ones. It’s not hard. The video must be released, so all the lies can be exposed.
The democrats’ own warped obsession with January 6th justifies any minor expense of relocating security cameras. Just scrape a few bucks off the top of the next pallet of cash earmarked for Ukraine.
In hindsight, it may ultimately turn out the democrats badly overplayed their hand, by concocting a narrative so easily disproven by ready evidence, evidence they counting on keeping secret, I guess. They probably figured it was a trade off, since democrats used the video to rile up their base and secure the Senate during the 2022 elections. And they almost kept the House.
Almost. But they did lose the House, and now the air is gushing all out of the rapidly-deflating “insurrection” narrative. It’s hard to imagine how corporate media’s non-existent reputation could get much worse, but we’re about to find out.
Lacking any video evidence, Republicans have been forced to play defense for two years. Now, it’s our turn. And it’s only going to hurt for a very long time.
Tucker promised even more video tonight. We’ll discuss what his team came up with tomorrow morning.
🔥 Next up, the Wall Street Journal published an obnoxious op-ed yesterday headed, “Why Scientists Got the Covid Lab Leak Wrong.” The subheadline delivered the revolting and pathetic attempt at some kind of good excuse: “We’re only human, and we’re as susceptible as everybody else to cognitive biases and self-interest.”
Oh, well, okay then.
They have to say SOMETHING. Here’s the problem. The government-approved “lab leak” narrative rapidly shifted without any warning, and in doing so it ran a lot of “experts” right onto the shoals, left high and dry, experts who’d fallen all over themselves supporting the old narrative through thick and thin.
Bio-development expert Tim Trehan wrote the apology op-ed. His credentials are that he wrote a 2017 Nature article prophetically warning about sloppy biolab conditions in China, so they expect us to trust him. I mean, he has every right to be gloating about having been right, but instead he’s graciously calling for amnesty for all the other scientists who got it wrong. And right at the moment, Google is helpfully serving up Tim’s 2017 article right at the top of the search results, in case you never heard of him.
In his WSJ article, Trehan suggests several reasonable-sounding explanations for why, even after emerging evidence supporting a lab leak, the MAJORITY of experts still doubled-down, continued pushing the natural origins narrative, and did their utmost best to suppress and cancel other scientists with whom they disagreed.
Trehan readily admits all of that happened.
But then Trehan rhetorically shrugged his shoulders and quite broad-mindedly explained: “That’s just science!” He pointed out scientists are only humans after all, not lizard people (probably), and since they are humans, scientists have biases and conflicts of interest and politics and tribes and they lust for money and power just like everybody else does.
So be reasonable. Don’t expect scientists to be perfect or anything.
Here’s how Trehan wrapped up his nauseating apologia:
I am not suggesting that scientists consciously decided to thwart the truth. These processes can be insidious and subconscious. But you don’t have to posit conspiracy theories to explain the rush by the science establishment to exclude a lab-leak explanation to Covid. You merely have to admit that scientists are human.
Thanks, but no thanks. I’m not buying any of it. It’s hogwash, rubbish, and utter nonsense. Why? Because during the pandemic, when all this broad-mindedness could have been helpful, when it would have counted for something, they never said “scientists are human.” They never said “scientists make mistakes.” They never said “scientists have biases.”
Nope. It doesn’t count now. You should have said that stuff three years ago.
In fact, they said the exact opposite. “FOLLOW THE SCIENCE,” they said. “TRUST THE EXPERTS,” they said. “DON’T BE A SCIENCE DENIER,” they said.
Somebody please explain to me how “don’t be a science denier” is AT ALL consistent with “scientists are only biased humans who sometimes make mistakes (en masse).” What a crock.
The “experts are infallible” narrative is sinking faster than a unicorn floatie punctured by a 7-year-old who took the sandwich knife in the pool. It feels like the reckoning might be coming a lot faster than anybody thought.
🔥 Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams has really started something. Rather than being canceled as a racist Klan grand wizard or whatever, Adams has instead exploded into meme world. Here are three quick examples making the rounds:
Whether he planned it this way or not, Adams’ timing now appears to have been perfect. With Twitter freed from the heavy chains of knee-jerk censorship, Adams’ comments about anti-white racism are spreading fast and have provoked an angry race debate on the platform. I’ll be honest, some of it is pretty raw, even downright uncomfortable, and some people are naturally crying that it shows how racist everybody really is.
That’s the wrong take. I think this debate, however uncomfortable, is something that has needed to happen for a long time. It only feels explosive now because of how long it has been bottled up.
I’d like to note how skillfully Adams played his hand of cards. I’ll admit that I was among the folks who thought he probably mistepped and was now suffering the natural, unfortunate consequences, by having his books and cartoon contracts canceled. I’ve never been an Adams fan. But I’m beginning to believe he probably made a courageous, calculated, and self-sacrificial decision to lance a burgeoning racial blister before it got worse.
On his podcast, Adams said that black people who feel “it’s not okay to be white” are a “hate group” that white people should say away from. That should have been uncontroversial, but of course it riled the woke cancel mob.
But in hindsight, Adams’ comments now look perfectly calibrated. His words were just inflammatory enough to fuel a widespread debate, but thoughtful and intelligent enough that anyone who listens to their full context cannot reasonably argue Adams is motivated by any improper racial animus.
I’m not sure where all of this is going, but it looks like Adams is becoming some kind of folk hero or class representative, and a completely necessary and important discussion about anti-white racism is underway, which appears to have been exactly what Adams wanted.
In other words, thanks to Scott Adams and a free Twitter, the “systemic racism” narrative could be crumbling, and being exposed as the poisonous falsehood that it always has been. Just like the January 6th “insurrection” narrative.
But that’s not all.
🔥 You’re going to love this one. Politico ran an encouraging story yesterday headlined, “Florida GOP Ready To Hand Desantis Legislative Wins Ahead Of Likely 2024 Bid.” The sub headline explained, “Florida’s Republican leaders, who have restricted how race and gender are taught in schools and colleges, are poised to go even further in the next few months.”
Well, *I* think it’s terrific, but Politico thinks DeSantis’ common-sense explanation for public school reform is some kind of dark agenda:
“Are these public institutions supported by your tax dollars that should be serving the interest of what the public deems is the best interest? Or do they just get to do whatever they want and impose a political agenda regardless of elections and regardless of anything that happens?” DeSantis said last week during a book tour event in Miami. “We believe that, obviously, in a democratic society, these government institutions funded by your tax dollars need to be held accountable for performance and they need to be serving the mission that we as voters and elected officials set out for them to do.”
What really seems to have gotten Politico’s goat is a newly-filed bill, Florida HB 1223, titled “Public PreK-12 Educational Institution and Instruction Requirements.” Among other things, if it’s passed the bill would:
— prohibit schools from requiring anybody to tell their pronouns,
— prohibit schools from punishing kids for not using ungrammatical politically-correct pronouns,
— prohibit public schools and private pre-k’s from teaching kids about pseudoscientific “sexual orientation” or “gender identity,”
— extend last year’s ban on sex ed through the 8th grade (it is currently only through 3rd grade), and
— provide guidelines for sex ed between 9th and 12th grades.
Here’s how the bill begins:
(1) It shall be the policy of every public K-12 educational institution that is provided or authorized by the Constitution and laws of Florida that a person’s sex is an immutable biological trait and that it is false to ascribe to a person a pronoun that does not correspond to such person’s sex.
Even better, the bill defines “sex” using normal human male / female biology:
“Sex” means the binary division of individuals based upon reproductive function.
Haha! That says they’re going to make schools correctly teach the kids that it is FALSE to use the wrong pronouns. I swear, in 50 years when people are looking back through these laws, they’re going to be scratching their heads and wondering what the heck was going on.
Predictably, liberals will sue Florida the second this bill is signed into law. That will bring the issue into court, and I don’t think Florida’s judiciary will overturn common sense and logic. The Florida Supreme Court will have a chance to write about what sex and gender actually mean.
Could it be that something like this bill will be enough to finally take down the “infinite genders” narrative? I’m thinking it is not just possible, but might even be likely. This could be the beginning of the end.
This is a lot more than progress.
Have a terrific Tuesday! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow for more.
