The Morning Report - 8/4/21

onwayor.jpg

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and in the lead are the twin stories of Angel of Death Andrew Cuomo's seeming impending exit from the governor's mansion in Albany and the continuing Chinese Coronavirus follies. Obviously, like most everything in the news, these are related but for sure extremely closely. The cynics here (and you can't blame them for being cynical considering everything we have witnessed since the coming of Trump and even before that fueled the cynicism) were sure that Cuomo was going to skate, and it certainly appeared that way as of a few weeks ago. But NY AG Letitia James dropped the hammer yesterday. Now the calls are coming for this greasy, crooked bastard to wire his damn mouth shut with his nipple rings and fall on his salsicce.

"We owe it to the American people to #BelieveSurvivor," Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted in support of the Democrat lynching of Justice Kavanaugh. After years of calling for "zero tolerance" on sexual harassment, the Cuomosexual chickens have come home to roost. As David Horowitz tweeted, "Chickens are coming home to roost -- all the dirty tactics & hypocritical moralizing Dems used to attack Trump are now focused on Cuomo. Speaking truth to power used to mean commie lies attacking Republicans and patriots. Now the worm is turning." Joe Biden, who had once called Cuomo the "gold standard", is now calling for his head. The Democrats and their media are now using the same dirty tactics against their own that they had formerly deployed against Trump.

Democrats, beginning with Attorney General Letitia James, a former ally, have come for Cuomo, not because they care about how many nursing home patients he killed or how many aides he groped, but because they, especially James, want his job. Now James released a report describing numerous cases of her feminist ally groping women. A month after Cuomo was claiming that whatever higher power (beyond his own reflection in the mirror) he believes in had made him a feminist, he ordered James' predecessor to end an investigation into the handling of the Harvey Weinstein coverup after getting $25,000 from Weinstein's old lawyer. This was the same investigation he had formerly demanded.

Was James really unaware of all this? Don't count on it. "Tish James says I'm a feminist and she's right," Cuomo had once bragged at a rally. "God told me I was a feminist." The first time Cuomo was accused of sexual harassment was twenty years ago when he was serving in the Clinton administration. And Congressional Democrats closed ranks around him. New York Democrats have gifted the state with paragons of virtue like Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who was forced to resign after multiple women accused him of choking and assaulting them, Comptroller Scott Stringer, whose recent mayoral campaign tanked after accusations of sexual harassment, and a legion of other cretins.

There's a reason that Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein felt so comfortable in New York. . .

. . . James isn't bringing actual criminal charges against Cuomo. That would take her away from her focus on destroying the NRA and President Trump. The investigation, like the orchestrated calls for Cuomo to resign, something he has no intention of doing, are a thinly disguised primary campaign. The Democrats want Cuomo's job, they aren't about to hold him accountable. An actual criminal trial would be too dangerous and would threaten too many party interests. Democrats want to primary Cuomo. They don't want to lock him up. And if he survives the primary challenges, they'll go back to being 'Cuomosexuals' all over again. And Attorney General James will go back to praising Cuomo as a feminist. Cuomo was as good at fake moral outrage as James and his Democrat opponents.

Good analysis from the estimable Daniel Greenfield insofar as gauging Ms. James' aspirations, and later on in his essay, he and his boss David Horowitz ring a rather optimistic tone about what they see as perhaps the beginning of the end of cancel culture and the political future of the Left more broadly. Nice to imagine that, but in the near term with his essay, I think he is missing a couple of things. Or perhaps he penned this before the news broke that every major and minor local and national Democrat up to and including braindead stooge president Joey Biden are unequivocally calling for him to resign.

There is no way to survive that. I also think he is missing the fact that in my estimation, as horrible as the serial sexual abuse of women and the corruption of his staff and the media to cover it all up and smear the accusers, this is to put out the real fire over his gross incompetence and possible malice aforethought in a policy that directly led to the deaths of at least 15,000 or more elderly nursing home residents by exposing them to the patients with Chinese Lung AIDS. And if Cuomo has to fall for that so do equally execrable monsters like Phil Murphy, Ned Lamont, Tom Wolf and Wretched Whitmer to name but a few. That to me is the real reason this is breaking right now.

Now my own cynicism comes to the fore, since if Cuomo does exit the scene we get Lt. Governor Katy Hochul filling in until the next election in 2022 and it certainly looks as if Letitia James is being groomed or is grooming herself to get the nod. So we're swapping out projectile colitis and eye shingles for terminal pancreatic cancer here in the Empire State. Oh joy.

Continuing on the Chinese Coronavirus theme, yesterday lame duck Commie mayor of NYC Bill DeBolshevik put the hammer and sickle down on those of us who do not want to get vaccinated by requiring "zee paperz pleez" if you want to go to a restaurant and gym. No doubt this will roll out everywhere else unless people push back. And judging from the attitude I have seen from my neighbors, I don't see that happening. Whatever the merits or dangers of these vaccines, they're not for me.

Well, I reject the vaccine. I will be happy to reassess the case in a few years, once we've had a chance to see how it performs in the long term. For now, I'm young, healthy, reasonably fit, have no leukemia or other aggravating conditions. I'm not at serious risk. If you are at risk, go get the vaccine. You will then be protected. If you're worried that I may still get the "delta" variant and transmit it to you -- it turns out that you're just as likely, as a vaccinated person, to get it and transmit it to me. But I'm not worried. Fauci says that if I walk around without a mask, I am "encroaching" on your right not to get sick. I'm sorry, but you have no such right. To live your entire life in fear of getting a disease is no better for your mind than a bad case of the flu is for your body. But the flu is transient, whereas perpetual fear of disease is not: It will disable you, and make you an isolated, lonely, scared, bitter person. You may not get COVID, but you will be sick.

Fortunately, it seems a number of my fellow Americans agree, even in the middle of New York City: In the days after the CDC's new mask guidelines, a fair proportion of people continue to ride the subway and bus maskless. The mask mandate for public transit has been in place since the beginning, but many New Yorkers have had enough of it. Likewise on the Long Island Rail Road last weekend: by the time my train reached Huntington, I found myself surrounded entirely by people not wearing masks. As if by tacit consent, everyone agreed that it was time for the stupidity to stop. The conductor came by, asked us for our tickets, and said nothing about masks.

New York City's Mayor de Blasio has just announced the city will require a vaccine passport, with scannable QR-code, for indoor dining, gyms, and concerts. The chips are down: In New York I have a choice between living in isolation or letting the government track every visit I make to a restaurant. For the first time in my life, I feel the law being brought to bear against me. I feel the attempt to turn law-abiding and peace-loving citizens into criminals. But I will not be coerced. I will not be blackmailed. I don't know whether I'm going to end up fined or in jail or just lonely -- but I hope others will join me in telling Mayor de Blasio that he can go straight to hell.

Also, an equally outraged Steve McCann nails it (this is an excerpt so do read the whole thing):

I am in my later 70's; over my lifetime I have lived among and have been exposed to people in refugee camps suffering with tuberculosis, cholera, hepatitis B and diphtheria and, after arriving in the United States, polio. I managed to get through the Asian Flu pandemic in 1957-58, the Hong Kong Flu pandemic of 1968-69, the HIV/Aids pandemic in the 1980's and the Swine Flu pandemic in 2009-10.

Thus, I am well aware of medical risks and realities, particularly when it comes to my health. I have been vaccinated for everything from tuberculosis to diphtheria to smallpox to polio to the annual flu. I have been reliably informed that I have a very robust immune system and, thankfully, I have never been seriously ill with any viral or bacterial infections.

I researched, from credible non-government sources, the evolution and development of the mRNA (Pfizer and Moderna) vaccines, their possible side effects and approval process. After considering the short and long-terms unknowns of a new type of vaccine that contains attenuated virus based on the Covid-19 genetic code provided by China combined with the realities of Covid infections, I concluded that I was unwilling to run the risk of compromising an immune system that had maintained my good health for nearly eight decades.

My medical history and attendant health decisions are unique to me. Every person in the United States has their own distinctive medical history, and depending on circumstances, heredity and previous access to medication, an immune system able or unable to fend off a variety of diseases.

A one-size-fits-all vaccine, particularly one that was approved on an emergency basis with unknown short and long-term side effects, requires allowing the citizenry to evaluate the risk for themselves. Instead, those that choose not to vaccinate are being called vile names and being threatened, intimidated and coerced by politicians and government bureaucrats. Additionally, vaccines are being mandated as a condition of employment by many private businesses and in the federal government at the direction of the Biden Administration. . .

. . . Every country that has pushed mass vaccination has experienced tremendous growth in Covid cases as well as increased hospitalizations and death rates among both vaccinated and unvaccinated people brought about by these variants. Fortunately, the variants to date, while highly contagious, do not appear to cause the same hospitalization and mortality rate as the first or alpha variant.

But that does not stop the Marxist-inspired Democrats and the Biden Administration from using the growth in cases to again threaten mandatory vaccinations, mask mandates and potential lockdowns in furtherance of the strategy put in place at the beginning of the pandemic to strip Americans of their rights and transform the populace into one that will meekly acquiesce to any specious government edicts.

I'm stuck in New York for the foreseeable future and even with that lanky hunk of Communist piss a lame duck, I doubt very much Eric Adams, even being merely a Trotskyite and not a full-on Maoist freak, is going to abolish this crap if he wins Gracie Mansion, almost as much as I doubt Curtis Sliwa has a chance at beating him. That being said, it took me all of about two seconds to find a PDF of the CDC vaccination card as well as how to fill them out. There is no way any bar, restaurant or other venue is going to have the wherewithal nor even the desire to do more than give a cursory look at it and wave you in. Traveling on airplanes might be more problematic but I am hardly a frequent flyer and if this is not resisted right now they will no doubt spend the billions of ill-gotten tax dollars to create bureaucracies to do the job. Or pay off Big Tech and the private sector to be the enforcers.

The CDC = Center of Diseased Control-Freaks. I have no fealty to illegal laws and edicts passed by illegal juntas and tyrants based on incompetent, inept, uncaring, unfeeling technocrats who are so far removed from reality and the last people you want controlling life and death decisions, let alone if you want regular or unleaded. If this makes me a criminal, so be it.

And while all this is going on, here's some reassuring news:

We can all sleep better tonight. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday on the July 29 arrest of Glen Allen Brooks, 61, of Huntington Beach, Calif. His crime? Brace yourself, gentle reader, for Mr. Brooks has been identified as a participant in the Jan. 6 "insurrection" at the United States Capitol. Imagine, he's been on the loose all these months, no doubt insurrecting to beat the band the whole time.

Mr. Brooks's alleged misdeeds are detailed in an FBI affidavit, in which a special agent (whose name is for some reason redacted) says that on Jan. 6, at 3:13 p.m., Brooks "entered the Senate side of the U.S. Capitol by climbing through a broken window near the Senate Wing Door." The affidavit goes on to say Brooks left the Capitol at 3:30 p.m.

And how did this dangerous insurrectionist spend those intervening 17 minutes? Did he menace any House or Senate member? Did he assault any police officers, destroy or steal any property? Did he go off in search of Vice President Pence, perhaps to cajole him into invalidating the electoral vote?

He did none of these things. He took some pictures. Photographs included in the affidavit purport to show Brooks using his cell phone to snap pictures, all in the presence of a dozen or more uniformed police officers, none of whom appear to be doing anything to stop him or anyone else from meandering about the room. Brooks reportedly shared some of his pictures with members of his church prayer group back home, one of whom reported him to the FBI. . .

. . . There have been 114 homicides in Washington, D.C., this year, a 5 percent increase over the same period last year, and based on the Metropolitan Police Department's past performance, we may assume more than 30 percent of them will go unsolved. Perhaps the FBI's time and effort would be of better use in trying to improve these statistics.

Andrew Breitbart, PBUH, said it best: "Fuck you. War."

Of course! We don't call AG's "aspiring governors" for nothing.

I never vote for former attorneys general running for executive office. There is something about having all that unconstitutional law (so little of it is litigated) to selectively enforce that corrupts them into tyranny. Roy Cooper is but one example.

FDA Authorizes Antibody Cocktail as COVID-19 Prevention Treatment

The FDA on Friday announced that it had revised its emergency use authorization (EUA) for REGEN-COV, a treatment consisting of jointly administered casirivimab and imdevimab, expanding its use beyond just the treatment of patients who test positive for the virus.

The agency added that REGEN-COV should only be used as a post-exposure prophylaxis by people who are not fully vaccinated or whose immune systems are unlikely to mount an adequate response to the virus, like those who take immunosuppressive medications or who are otherwise immunocompromised.

I don't see how you get from A to B. Internal Party power struggles - like everything else - have different rules. If they want to snipe Cuomo, they'll snipe Cuomo. It they don't, they won't. If they want to but have inadequate power in that theater, they'll make some noise and then retreat (which is what I suspect happened with Northam).

But in no way does the treatment of Cuomo - good or ill - have any bearing whatsoever on their treatment of you.

61 >>> Although the exact type of alcohol monitor the bill would require is unclear, passive alcohol sensors are described in a report by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). The group recommends "driver monitoring systems, touch-based systems that can read your blood alcohol concentration through your fingertips and air-sampling systems that can test and isolate just the air exhaled by the driver." MADD President Alex Otte praised Senate negotiators for using the infrastructure bill as a vehicle to pass the group's "most significant" legislative push in recent years.

That's one hell of a quote, and one hell of a leap in technology if they can isolate just the breath of the driver from an enclosed cabin where air is circulating....

And, admittedly I am not up to date on the possible technologies, can one get a BAC reading just from a surface reading, a la a fingertip PulseOx?

He is profoundly lucky that he has never felt that way before. I suspect being a New Yorker might have something to do with it. The sphere in which most people have the, ahem, opportunity to interact with the LE is in motoring. If you don't drive, you'll probably have fewer adversarial interactions with cops.

Anyone who's driven - especially in certain states like Colorado - may have had many, and likely will have long ago learned this lesson. That he still thinks it is (or was) possible to be a "law-abiding citizen" speaks to that. There is no such thing, and there hasn't been for a long time. It's been many years since I used that description for myself. I switched to the more accurate and more precise term "peaceable citizen" because I am that. No one is "law-abiding."

79 A one-size-fits-all vaccine, particularly one that was approved on an emergency basis with unknown short and long-term side effects, requires allowing the citizenry to evaluate the risk for themselves. Instead, those that choose not to vaccinate are being called vile names and being threatened, intimidated and coerced by politicians and government bureaucrats. Additionally, vaccines are being mandated as a condition of employment by many private businesses and in the federal government at the direction of the Biden Administration. . .

This is something I have been talking about in my circles. One size fits all. We are seeing so many women being affected by this, and who knows if it will render those sterile. Who knows what it will do to people who do not even know they have an underlying condition that would never have threatened their health in the long run. At THIS moment in time, your body may be fighting something that it will naturally take care of, but not to worry, the vaccine could kill you at THIS moment in time, because... They have no right.

A federal judge Tuesday blocked Texas from allowing state troopers to stop vehicles carrying migrants on the grounds that they may spread COVID-19 as worries and new cases are rising along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The temporary order by U.S. District Judge Kathleen Cardone of El Paso is at least a short-term victory for the Biden administration, which had warned that Republican Gov. Greg Abbott's plan would create more problems amid high levels of summer border crossings in Texas - particularly in the Rio Grande Valley, which one U.S. official called the "epicenter of the current surge."

A small box under the dash, a tube that ran to the steering wheel and a lockout on the ignition key slot (older car.) He had to turn the box on, blow into the tube and wait to see if he could start the car. It did nothing more than that. No reporting. Just start, or not.

He said many times someone else would simply "blow start" his ride for him because he was over the limit.

174 Countries with the Highest Vaccination Rates Have the Highest Infection Rates

Some doctors have been warning that vaccine-induced antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) may contribute to long-term adverse effects that would begin to manifest themselves 3 -12 months after vaccination.


I mentioned this yesterday from thecovidblog.

Larry Dietrich: 64-year-old Syracuse (NY) retired journalist dead 12 weeks after second Moderna mRNA injection
Granted we are a small blog with small (but growing) sample sizes. We also happen to have a reliable contact in that area who finds these stories and reports them to us.
The first one was 53-year-old Syracuse teacher's union president Bill Scott. He died 10 weeks after the second Pfizer shot. Mr. Scott is the first story that we labeled a "near-term death." Though the time range is fluid, these individuals typically die anywhere from nine to 12 weeks after their second injections.
Jeff Kimpland is the 53-year-old Syracuse musician who died nine weeks after the J&J injection. We covered near-term "vaccine" deaths in Chicago Ohio, New Jersey and elsewhere. But Mr. Dietrich is now the third one in Syracuse since April

215 The extension of the eviction moratorium demonstrates it is near impossible and political suicide to end a govt. entitlement program. Even the much beloved Biden was not allowed to do it by the insane prog base, led by AOC. We will be stuck with some form of free rent forever, or at least until the Burning Times.

--

I find the whole moratorium absolutely abhorrent. I don't know the actual ratio, but not everyone is a slumlord (Jarrett types) with multiple properties. A very large % are just people that have a single property or two and rent those homes out for additional income. They are being robbed, wholesale, by the feral federal gov't.

What's likely going to start happening, as these small potatoes landlords get sick and tired of paying for the upkeep of their lazy and irresponsible tenants (nobody, but nobody, is truly out of work and unable to find the plethora of jobs out there for those willing to work because of covid) is that they'll just sell off those properties. I'd like to see some type of class action lawsuit against the gov't for this highway robbery.

Such a notion rejects context and will have loads of false positives - an ideal solution, really. Much like the COVID testing schemes, now that I think about it. The problem is nuanced. I know nuance is forbidden, but so be it. .08 isn't a splendid legal alcohol limit. If you're usually a teetotaler, .08 is borderline drunk. If you're a regular drinker, it's barely buzzed. If you're a problem drinker, it isn't even going to move the needle. Moreover, propaganda aside, buzzed driving is *not* drunk driving - the statistics are pretty clear on that. Tired driving is bad, too - but an open road in the middle of the night where your only threat is to you yourself is quite different that high speed through town at rush hour.

But such rules are contextless and absolute - and when enforced by an arbitrary machine without judgement and that will err by chance (and err on the side of caution by design), it will be restrictive and immoral.

as expected big guy drinks 3 beers in 30 min, fails field test and blows a .12. NOT a drinker. normal size dinks 4 beers in 30 min, borderline to fail on field, and blows a .1.

Correct. Like when John Wick goes to the bar in the first movie and tells Winston (the hotel's owner) that he just wants to "talk" to Josef, the guy he's after because dog and car. Winston looks at him and says, "I'm familiar with the parlance."

297 I wonder how many property owners are going to go broke, or already have gone broke, because of these unconstitutional "moratoriums" on rent?

The property owners' mortgage obligations didn't stop. Their obligation to pay property taxes and insurance premiums and upkeep on their properties didn't stop. But the government waved its magic wand and made the rental income from their properties stop.

And eventually the SCOTUS will say (again) "hey CDC, that's unconstitutional, but since it only happened (the second time) for a short while, we'll let it slide."

Because that's the oath those justices took: to uphold the constitution, unless upholding the constitution is inconvenient for the Dim party, in which case the SCOTUS will let it slide.

Precisely the wrong tactic and why we need to get rid of McConnell. Every one of these members should be stripped of their committee assignments. The fact that McConnell isn't threatening that tells you all you need to know. He's in on the con. Our country is being trampled by Democrats. There is no comity, unity or good in anything they are doing- yet Republicans do nothing to stop it. In fact, they are going to reward them with an infrastructure bill. What did they get in return? Zero.

That's interesting.

Wouldn't high performing non-whites who had been promoted already be at an advantage since they'd already proven they were better candidates than white people?

How did removing their photos suddenly affect them being on the statistical far right side of that bell curve in performance?

3) The McCs are personal injury tort lawyers. Ugh. I suspect that if they were accused of being Republicans &/or conservatives (prior to becoming famous) that there would be insufficient evidence to convict them.

4) I don't take McC's U.S. Senate campaign seriously, assuming he even persists in it, & I hope no-one else does either. There are about 5 worthy GOP candidates for the open Senate seat, & McC is not one of them.

337 Post 259-What's a seawolf

Generally if a church wants to disunite from the denomination
they either form their own church, or they unite with another
more conservative denomination, both of which involves votes by the Administrative Council and members and usually paying a fee to the more liberal denomination to leave. Since denominational churches pay a yearly fee to be part of the denomination if they leave they usually pay what the amount would be over several years or what the value of the church is. Here's an example of a church which wanted to leave to ELCA. You might contact them for more information:

350 It SHOULD be a crime to criticize me because that is criticism of science.

We don't live in the Dark Ages where you be criminalized for believing in a heliocentric solar system.

351 Aw, Obama is scaling back his birthday party plans in response the Delta variant.

Which will make it even more popular since it now has a taboo associated to it.

352 mnw- I'm in STL metro, just south of the recently deceased Lambert Field. What the McC's were thinking when they decided to live in the actual City of STL is unfathomable.

354 Scientific Journal Paper Suggests Making It a "Federal Hate Crime" to Criticize Fauci

One of many in the endless stream of exhibits as to why scientists should have absolutely nothing to do with public policy.

355 I admit I know nothing about this technology, so this might sound like a stupid question, but couldn't you just disable it by putting a piece of tape over the sensor? It does need to "see" your face, so has camera functionality, right? Or couldn't you just hack at it with a screwdriver and destroy it?

Wait one week and you can download a software hack that will disable that "feature".

356 There's an app for that!

358 24 JJ, I don't know if you saw it, but the "infrastructure" bill also moves us to digital currency. Pixy posted it a little while ago:

"The bill would also explicitly allow the Federal Reserve to issue a central bank digital currency (CBDC)."

I saw a different GETTR hit piece that said it was funded by a Chinese billionaire. I looked it up and he's a dissident who fled the country.

The McCloskeys:
1) Gov. Parsons is a class act absolutely did the right thing by pardoning them for the misdemeanor offense to which they pled guilty;
Posted by: mnw at August 04, 2021 08:24 AM (Cssks)

The pardon is welcome, but in a sane, legal, constitutional country, should also have been unnecessary. In a sane world, Kim Gardner would have been tossed out on her ear for letting all those criminals out through malfeasance, and if not for that, wasting government resources on a losing case against the McC's. Unfortunately we don't live in a sane world.

It would be nice if they won, and each member of the class was awarded $100K for punitive damages. (Hey, these companies are worth billions, right?).

Will never happen. It's in the penumbras of the constitution for these companies to do what they do and a tax agaist wrongthought.

364 Brooks reportedly shared some of his pictures with members of his church prayer group back home, one of whom reported him to the FBI.

this is the problem right here. MLK's church was informed and went out and protested against the government against unjust laws. The current church probably understands nothing of unjust laws because of the faustian bargain the churches made with the government to become tax exempt while giving up the right to endorse candidates (dont even get me started about how leftists use the same law which was for churches to form non profits and then wink wink not endorse candidates). The person probably thought well we're not supposed to break laws so I need to turn him in to be a good christian. its God first, then family, then country. and country aint the government.
