Good morning, C&C, it’s Friday! Your roundup today includes: Elon Musk’s spicy trip to the border; U.S. Senate unanimously amends the new Fetterman rule about its dress code; Biden Administration now says it never mandated anything, what are you talking about?; new study proves mRNA is found in injured heart tissue, which also proves the government lied; Business Insider runs a story claiming that Western armor just wasn’t designed for conditions in Ukraine; SADS pilot, hockey executive and mRNA pioneer, and A-list musician; and Washington Post runs some bad news for the intelligence agencies that was great news for the rest of us.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 Elon Musk, new owner of the world’s largest media platform, is now looking at the border problem. Late last night, Elon echoed yesterday’s C&C headline:
Not to quibble or anything, and I know he’s just making a point, but we’re actually wiring Ukraine way over 100 times what we’re spending on the border crisis. Compare the billions we’ve sent Ukraine in the last two years with how little has been appropriated to handle the surge at the U.S.’s border.
Perhaps growing tired of all the Establishment Media gaslighting, Elon decided I’ll just go down there and see for myself. He filmed his border experience using Twitter’s live video feature and uploaded everything. At one point in his discussion with local officials, Elon — doing much better math this time — calculated that the annual number of illegals entering at that one location exceeds the population of the State of Wisconsin.
One local sheriff informed Elon that his county is geographically the size of a medium-sized state. But his entire law enforcement workforce is only 12 people, with only two deputies on duty at any one time. In other words, he’s totally outnumbered. It’s like the Alamo, but with only two Texans inside.
Meanwhile, around the same time as Elon was posting videos from his border trip, CNN also ran a heartwarming border story. The Establishment News network interviewed a nice young undocumented Colombian lady named Angelina who crossed the border into El Paso last year. An entrepreneur at heart, she began hooking right away, and in just one year she now rents a small building from a Bolivian fentanyl dealer and runs her own squad of six girls, providing crucial resume enhancement for two teens who can’t find work anywhere else. The hardworking bunch of gals recently added tattooing to their services menu, and Angelina told CNN that she was working very hard to get the proper licenses and everything, but the State of Texas is muy defícil to work with, always asking for papers and stuff. After Angelina shared her famous spicy burríto recipe, CNN transitioned into a breaking story exposing all the red tape at Texas’s Department of Business regulation.
(Okay, I made that last part up, but you get the idea.)
I often wonder whether Elon ever marvels at how much his life has changed since the halcyon days of living as a quiet democrat near Tech Valley in Northern California, where he enjoyed a fairytale life of attending movie premiers and dress-up cocktail parties within MSNBC’s liberal fantasy bubble, where he peacefully built environmentally-friendly electric cars and minded his own business.
Then the pandemic came. And Elon had the temerity to complain — gently — to the County about how his billion-dollar electric car manufacturing operation was abruptly designated “non-essential” and shut down by a pack of goofy commissioners holding degrees in transgender feminist studies. He reasonably pointed out the State’s order had said that “energy related companies” were “essential.”
But then a woke California state legislator tweeted, “F— Elon Musk,” and the rest is history. Now, two years later, Elon owns Twitter. And more importantly, he’s now a Texan, where it’s real life, señor, all day long.
I do wish Elon would stop mucking around with the brain chips, but I sure like all the other stuff he’s been doing lately. A lot.
🔥 I had just clicked “Order Now” on a 12-pack of hoodied sweatshirts with marijuana-leaf logos, to wear to court next month for the fall fashion season, when this BBC story came blazing over the wires: “US Senate unanimously votes to reinstate dress code.”
And guess what? It was a Fetterman Makeover!
Behold the cream of the Democrat Party’s rising youth contingent.
Look at him. He’s so proud of himself! I hate docking Fetterman fashion points for his sneakers. After all, he’s the size of an Old Testament giant, probably wears a size fourteen shoe, and we can safely guess that the wealthy trust-fund baby mostly owns flip-flops and not any dress shoes. So, we’ll assume his colossal-sized dress shoes are still on order.
On the bright side, he earned back the lost footwear points for cutting off his ridiculous Mario mustache. I’m not sure why he’s sporting the five o’clock shadow though, since the man-child obviously owns a razor, just look at that baby-smooth chrome dome.
Anyway. Yesterday, the Senate unanimously voted to restore that chamber’s dress requirements, in a humiliating rebuke to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who on Monday, without checking with anybody, unilaterally axed the unwritten but traditional dress code. Schumer’s obvious goal was to enable the continuing arrested development of Senator John Fetterman (D-PA), letting him dress like a character out of Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
This look is so much better. Now Fetterman looks like a bald teenage pothead wearing a suit.
The new bipartisan dress code resolution was introduced by Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Mitt Romney (R-Ut.). A C-SPAN reporter live-tweeted the proceedings, noting that Senator Schumer, no political amateur, quickly jumped on board the dress-code express:
Vaccine-addled Senator Fetterman might have to put on the coat and tie like the rest of us professionals, but at least they’re still going to let him have regular videogame breaks to play Counter Strike, to help manage his anxiety, and they’ve also added Cool-Ranch Doritos to the Senate’s snack menu. So everyone was happy.
🔥 Yesterday, alert Republicans on the House Labor Subcommittee grilled lizard-lipped OHSA head Douglas Parker over that agency’s late, great vaccine mandate, which was subsequently overthrown by the Supreme Court as a grotesque, unconstitutional abuse of authority.
OSHA’s bold response yesterday: it never happened.
Chairman Kevin Kiley (R-Ca.) was frankly astounded by Mr. Parker’s answer.
“The Secretary of Health and Human Services made one of the most outlandish statements ever entered into the Congressional record — which is saying quite a lot — when he said, ‘we never forced anyone to do anything’ in relation to the widely-discredited policy of forcing young children — as young as two years old — to wear masks.
Now you come before us today, asked about one of the most sweeping abuses of power that we’ve ever seen (OSHA’s vaccine mandate), that was rebuked by the Supreme Court, and you tell us ‘we didn’t demand that anyone be fired.’
Is there some sort of memo going around? Why is the Administration insistent on rewriting history?”
I don’t remember which comedian it was, but this reminds me of his advice for gaslighting an angry wife. Let’s say she saw you walking out of your girlfriend’s place. Just deny, deny, deny. Baby, it wasn’t me! I swear! It never happened!
Denial is a river in Egypt, and it’s also the new democrat party line. It might feel frustrating that these top Biden officials are openly dissembling about what obviously happened two short years ago. Don’t believe your lying eyes! But consider the upside. This means that they realize their covid positions are indefensible.
If any of it worked even a tiny bit, they’d be bragging about how great it all was. The mendacious public health establishment is going down in flames faster than the Hindenburg did.
Oh, the humanity.
🔬 Speaking of rewriting history, a new study published Wednesday in the Journal Nature, titled “Duration of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccine persistence and factors associated with cardiac involvement in recently vaccinated patients.”
The researchers autopsied 25 dead folks. Twenty of them died within 30 days of getting the safe and effective covid jabs. Five were a control group of deceased unvaccinated people. Here’s the study’s conclusion, which put the lie to the government’s long-standing claims that mRNA never ever leaves the injection site, disappears within a few short days, and never ever ever enters the heart:
“These results suggest that SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines routinely persist up to 30 days from vaccination and can be detected in the heart… Vaccine was detected in the myocardium in a subset of patients vaccinated within 30 days of death… In conclusion, this study provides a map of the biodistribution and persistence of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines in human tissues.”
The government lied. It lied like a flea-ridden dog, or a cheap rug, or a dead muskrat. The researchers found mRNA in damaged heart tissue in three out of the twenty vaccinated patients. That’s 1.5 out of ten (15%). Sadly, this information might have been helpful last year to some people who were deciding whether to go ahead and get the jabs to take a 3-day Caribbean cruise.
The obligatory glorification of the vaccines, which is still required for any study like this to get published, continues to be watered down. Here’s the how these particular researchers worded the compulsory language:
The BNT162b2 and mRNA-1273 vaccines have been found to be both relatively safe and effective at preventing severe infection. Serious adverse complications due to these vaccines are uncommon and may include anaphylactic reactions, myocarditis, pericarditis, myocardial infarction, cerebral sinus thrombosis, stroke, pulmonary embolism, neuropathies, and autoimmune hepatitis.
Hahahaha! Let us count the ways the stuffing was streaming out of the jab endorsement. First, they didn’t say “safe and effective.” They said, relatively safe and effective. But relative to what? Getting crushed by a meteorite?
Next, did you notice they didn’t regurgitate the line that serious adverse reactions are rare? Instead, they said serious adverse reactions are uncommon. Those are terms of art. Uncommon is a LOT different from rare. It’s a huge difference. ‘Rare’ adverse reactions occur in fewer than 1 in 1,000 people. ‘Uncommon’ adverse reactions occur in more than 1 in 1,000 people, but less than 1 in 100.
So now it’s uncommon, headed straight toward common at 60 mph, the last stop on pharma’s criminal railroad.
Finally, the researchers named a non-exclusive list of serious adverse events with NINE different categories of injuries. This was particularly remarkable considering that the CDC and the FDA currently only recognize THREE of those nine types (anaphylactic reactions, myocarditis, and pericarditis).
And yet it still got published. We’re making serious progress. Here’s a link to the study.
🚀 Uh-oh. Who could’ve seen this coming? Business Insider ran an illuminating story yesterday headlined, “Western-made armor isn't working in Ukraine because it wasn't designed for a conflict of this intensity, Ukrainian analyst says.” The sub-headline explained, “Taras Chmut said Western-made tanks weren't designed for an ‘all-out’ war of this intensity.”
Wait, what? Western tanks aren’t working in Ukraine? I see. It’s the tanks’ fault.
Taras Chmut, a military analyst quoted in a related Wall Street Journal article this week, explained that "a lot of Western armor doesn't work here, because was been created, not for an all-out war, but for conflicts of low or medium intensity. If you throw it into a mass offensive, it just doesn't perform," he said.
Over the years, the U.S. military and the Russian military have taken very different approaches to designing military equipment. The U.S.’s focus is on fewer, better weapons: high tech, high cost, complicated units with real-time 3D heads-up displays linked into vast battlefield computer networks advised by artificial intelligence systems.
Meanwhile, the Russians have focused on quantity, simplicity, and interchangable parts.
For example, here’s a video showing a group of Russian cadets — cadets, mind you — disassembling and re-assembling a jeep in four minutes:
A rare benefit from the Proxy War is we are learning a lot about the weaknesses in our weapons strategies. The problem is, so are our enemies.
🔥 Finally. Representative Thomas Massie (R-Ky), is on top of the problem of war criminals embedded in the U.S. health agencies who are trying to engineer genetic medical treatments into our fresh food supply. Yesterday, he successfully introduced a budget amendment prohibiting the USDA from doing any more mRNA research:
It’s great news. Keep it up!
Flight DL-291 from Paris to Los Angeles was enroute, about 440 nautical miles north of Minneapolis in Canadian Airspace, when an unidentifed member of the flight crew mysteriously “became medically incapacitated” by an unidentified illness and was removed to the cabin for unspecified in-flight care.
The Delta Airbus diverted to Minneapolis, and the pilot was rushed to the hospital. No information on his condition or its mysterious cause is available.
Delta had one of the strictest jab mandates in the industry. I’m just saying.
💉 Yesterday, the New York Post ran a story about the NHL headlined, Calgary Flames executive Chris Snow won’t wake up after cardiac arrest.
Chris was an ALS survivor, and in widely-published media over the last few years, participated in a successful trial for a now-FDA-approved genetic drug to treat ALS. It’s called Qalsody. You have to dig a little, but according to manufacturer Biogen’s website, Qalsdody is yet another mRNA drug:
QALSODY is an antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) designed to bind to SOD1 mRNA to reduce SOD1 protein production. QALSODY is indicated for the treatment of ALS in adults who have a mutation in the SOD1 gene in the U.S.
Qalsody’s listed side effects do not currently include any cardiac symptoms. Together, Vanguard and Blackrock own 20% of the drug’s manufacturer, Biogen. I’m not saying anything, I’m just saying.
GoFundMe is rapidly becoming about the only place you can find details on these mysterious deaths these days. According to the family’s GoFundMe, on September 26th, two days after walking into a hockey rink to watch his son play a game, Chris suddenly became unresponsive when his heart attacked him. Doctors were able to revive him, but his brain had gone without oxygen for too long.
Chris’ wife Kelsie tweeted yesterday that his doctors are now arranging for organ donation.
It’s the second case this week featuring the intersection of (probable) covid jab injury and medical pioneerism involving mRNA drugs. Weird!
💉 Another one! Yesterday, another celebrity musician played so hard he experienced a dramatic on-stage “brief illness.” The Daily Mail’s report was headlined, “Horror moment as Grammy Award-winning guitarist Al Di Meola, 69, clasps his chest as he suffers a heart attack while performing in Romania.”
Four-time Grammy Award winner Al Di Meola is an American jazz, rock, and fusion guitarist, known for his technical virtuosity, his ability to skillfully blend different musical styles, and his adventurous improvisational approach.
Al is widely considered to be one of the greatest jazz guitarists of all time.
According to the story, Dragos Cristescu, a Romanian photographer who attended Di Meola’s Wednesday night concert, told the AP he saw Di Meola clutch his chest during the performance and then struggle to walk off stage. The other two members of Di Meola’s trio continued playing for a few minutes, apparently not sure what to do, until they abruptly cancelled the rest of the show.
But there were two bits of good news. The first was, Di Meola is reported to be stable after his brief, mysterious illness, and is currently comfortably recovering in the hospital. Second, you can rest assured, Al had all his jabs, or else it might have been much worse, and best of all, he dutifully leveraged his celebrity status to recommend that everyone else get the jabs, too:
We sincerely wish the best for Al, pray for his complete recovery, and hope he keeps playing another thirty years. He might want to start on the FLCCC protocol though.
🔥 Watch out below! The Washington Post ran a delightfully hysterical story this week headlined, “Misinformation research is buckling under GOP legal attacks” The tragic sub-headline further explained, “An escalating campaign, led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and other Republicans, has cast a pall over programs that study political disinformation and the quality of medical information online.”
There was lots of good news tucked away in the story. First, Stanford University is now ‘facing litigation’ and its officials, poor babies, are wondering how they can possibly keep on tracking election-related ‘misinformation.’ Stanford’s co-conspirators, I mean its ‘coalition’ of so-called disinformation researchers, might shrink and may actually have to stop snitching on fellow citizens, I mean sending their reports, to Twitter and Facebook.
Next, the story woefully reported that the NIH has now frozen a $150 million (!) program to “advance the communication of medical information,” blaming new regulatory and legal threats. Back in July, NIH officials sent a memo to some employees, warning them to stop flagging ‘misleading’ social media posts and to stop giving medical advice to the public.
“If the question relates in any way to misinformation or disinformation, please do not respond,” read the NIH’s guidance email, which was sent in July right after the judge in Missouri v. Biden enjoined federal agencies from communicating with social media companies. (The NIH declined to comment on whether that guidance was changed following September’s appeals-court ruling, which cut back the scope of the judge’s initial injunction.)
WaPo’s article emotionally decried “increasing” Russian and Chinese “misinformation” and hypochondriacally whined about widespread anti-vaccine memes “as we head into the fall virus season.” Germs!
Cry harder, Washington Post.
In addition to the great work being done in Missouri v. Biden, which now sits at the Supreme Court, Representative Jordan, leading the House’s “Weaponization of the Federal Government” committee, has been busily issuing subpoenas and demands for communications between so-called “disinformation” researchers, the government, and social media platforms, as part of the committee’s larger probe into the Biden administration’s collusion with Big Tech.
The key to accountability for what happened during the pandemic begins with Americans’ ability to talk about it freely. This case, and Jordan’s committee, are heroically winning the first, key battle needed to win the war. It’s progress, lots of it.
