As Biden Fails to Convince Democrat Constituencies to Get the Vaccine, and As He Allows Hundreds of Thousands of Infected Illegal Aliens to Infect Americans, Biden Tries Shifting the Blame to Florida and Texas

His "moderate, centrist" AG, vouched for by National Review's Andrew McCarthy, sued the state of Texas for trying to keep its citizens free of infection from covid-ridden illegal aliens being secretly dispersed around the state to create super-spreader events.

Thank Goodness for the moderate, centrist, norms-restoring Biden Administration vouched for by NeverTrump and Conservative, Inc. as a whole.

A federal judge, naturally enough, granted an injunction against Abbot's ban on using Texas' roads to deploy the virus against its citizens.

Abbott's order said that "DPS is to stop & reroute, or impound any vehicle being used to transport illegal migrants who have been detained by Border Patrol." Critics said this would lead to illegal stops by law enforcement and profiling. The goal is to stop anyone other than law enforcement from transporting migrants who may be infected with COVID-19 from place to place. This order is part of a disaster declaration signed by the governor on July 28. The DOJ threatened to sue if Abbott didn't rescind the order. He didn't so the DOJ sued.

Judge Kathleen Cardone, United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, granted a temporary injunction. She cited the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution as her reason for doing so. The Supremacy Clause states that the federal government is "the supreme law of the land" and federal law takes priority over state law. Her order prevents any state or local agents from enforcing any part of Abbott’s executive order as it pertains to transporting migrants. The DOJ claimed that state and local officials were obstructing the federal government by limiting who could transport migrants taken into custody.

This is sheer lawlessness. It is true that the Supremacy Clause says that federal laws supersede the laws of states, but not mere policies and directives of the executive. Those are not laws.

But this is Post-America, and the Ruling Class intends to dispose of the Constitution that has hitherto restrained it.

Biden demanded that Abbot specifically "get out of the way" of Biden's supposed efforts to control the spread of covid -- even as Biden acts to prevent him from controlling the spread of covid.

From just this Monday:


Biden is deliberately creating covid disaster areas in red states, and then claiming the tyrannical authority to squash the governors of those states.

Is this really about covid?


Seems that the supposed "right" of illegal aliens to enter the country as they please is important enough to trump any anti-covid measures.

So strange that the rights of American citizens to live their lives in freedom are not similarly important enough to outweigh covid concerns.

By the way, despite the frothing agitation by Biden's puppetmasters and the enemy propaganda media, it turns out that Evangelicals -- mostly Trump voters -- are not the most unvaccinated group in America.

The most unvaccinated group are... younger people with no religion.

Also known as "The Democrat Party Base."

Meanwhile, the Dictator of New York City says you must give up your right to not be vaccinated or else he's going to strip you of even more of your rights:


All those Trump Supporters spreading illegal misinformation about the vaccines...

Maybe she was #Hacked again.

I look at two possibilities (not going into how crazy or likely either is, just the two I can reason out):

1) Gesture of submission. Forcing everyone to bend the knee in a way that is overt and if people had the time to think about it, outrageous way. Once you bend the knee, the psychological barrier is broken.

2) Something fishy about the vaccine that is not about Covid.

28 And the lapdogs in the press are following this narrative like bloodhounds. If you can stomach television news - I do, once per week, to keep my eye on the narrative - this is writ large.

They juxtapose stories about Florida's regulations with Florida's "case count" based on testing. Whenever there's some horror story about some sainted middle-aged person or grannie who died of the 'Vid, they talk about the vaccination status (unvaccinated, every time) and location (Texas, Florida or another Southern state, but usually Florida). The "National" ticker entries and segments always highlight Florida.

Based on the news coverage, you could be forgiven for thinking that Florida is the only state in the Union or that all news happens there.

When TX state troopers stop every charter bus within 100 miles of the border, it can certainly be for comprehensive roadside safety inspections. Road safety is a state responsibility, not Federal. And those buses are presumably licensed within Texas, making it a Texas responsibility to ensure that the passengers are being conveyed in a safe vehicle. And if out-of-state buses are being used, Texas also has an obligation and responsibility to ensure that those out-of-state vehicles conform to state law.

I'm willing to give him a chance. Maybe he learned from one of the huge mistakes Trump made when he allowed his policies to be blocked by judges. Maybe he will try the same weak strategy of letting the fascists in black robes get their way, but whining about it to the press and on Twitter. If he tells this judge to GFH, I will be pretty excited for a DeSantis-Abbott ticket in 2024. If he makes the same mistake Trump did, well, he is an idiot who is not worth any attention or support.

Posted by: Unencumbered By the Weight

A few days ago I did a comment on Who wants masks. Now for vaccines.
1. Drug companies. Don't underestimate how much of the billions they are making is going to stealth PR to push vaccines.
2. Health care industry, in the pocket of drug companies. (even as many HCWs decline to be vaccinated.)

3. Bit tech, which see passports as the "killer app" which justifies their tracking, data bases, and Big Data control over people. Who needs cookies when the f-ing sheep carry around trackers and use them to prove vaccine status at every doorway.
4. CCP. They are in league with big tech, and see the passports as a way to export their control into the West.
5. Karens. Many people, even those who do not want to get the vaccine themselves, demand that other's get the vaccine since it presents no risk to themselves and might offer them some protection if everyone else is vaccinated.

Yeah, that's the approach the left would take: use the bureaucracy against them. And against the churches helping out; send every agency in the government against them, check their lighting, occupancy, etc.

81 The problem that Abbott has and that Trump had is he's not sure his orders to disobey the judge will be followed. And if they aren't that will make him look much worse.

With all the union gov workers it is a sure thing that there will be some who will find a way to not follow any orders from Abbott.

The other responses above have given you your answer. But the other thing is that if this virus has been around for 2 years, which it has, then we have all been exposed, and have immunity.
Yesterday I heard a story about some neighbors going to Hawaii. The husband tested positive for the virus, now they can not go. But wait, the super evil virus that is going to kill all of us? But this guy did not even know he had it? All these Olympic athletes, golf pros in the various Open competitions, can not compete because they test positive, but they had no clue they were infected.

We have all been exposed at this point.

I don't. Illegal aliens, though, are another matter. There is no such thing as an "illegal immigrant" and illegals aliens are *not* immigrants.

Immigration is a legal process. If you bypass that process, you're either a criminal or an invader - but not an immigrant.

106 Once a social passport comes into effect it will be very easy to disenfrancise anyone who is resisting.

And it could be done by actors that are not supposed to have input to the social rating.

China could cause millions to be classes as irresponsible and unable to work, shop for food or ride transportation. Talk about being able to sow chaos.

If a social credit system is begun that is the end of the United States of America. Sure some states might be able to counteract it but what if the suppliers out of state comply and refuse to do business with Florida or Texas? It will be a sword hanging over everyone's head and it starts with the vaccine passport.

6. The vaccinated. Those people have made a decision and are now wedded to that. They are champions for what they decided. If they admit that anyone might have a reason not to get the vaccine, then they are admitting that maybe they made a mistake. People seem to have trouble admitting to mistakes.

7. Teachers. They deserve a special line item since they want excuses to delay going back to work, and they want compensation for having to deal with humans on the job. (I mean, more compensation - federal bonus pay) They also want vaccines for all the kids.

8. The young "IFL Science!" crowd. They see this as another example of old ignorant people resisting the experts. They are too young to understand how stupid most experts are, or to think for themselves, but they like to feel superior to others by claiming the vaccine is just like WWII, or The Salk vaccine, or standing on the bridge facing off against Bull Conner. This is their life defining battle and they are desperate to fight for the *right* side.

No, this is backwards.

Power devolves upward in our system. It's one of its strokes of brilliance, possible the main one. The source of the power at the federal is the states, and at the states it's the people. It isn't that the 10th delegates unreserved powers to the states, it is that 10th restricts the federal to the powers specifically delegated to it by the states. The states reserve *all* other powers.

Yes and no - only in laws that the majority states representatives vote for and those laws are not found to be counter to the Constitution. In other words, there is no such law the federal government can pass that supersedes state election laws unless those state election laws are found to violate some portion of the Constitution.

To that point, the Punchy DOJ is suggesting they can suggest or point to the Supremacy Clause in a whole host of unconstitutional areas like the 2nd, 5th, and 10th amendments, when they actually know good and fucking well that they can't.

Think about Afghanistan. Obama ran on how the Afghan war was the "Good War" and how he had a plan to turn it around. But once in office his goal was to do just enough to create the illusion of stability so that he could withdraw US forces. It wasn't to solve the problem, but merely to claim victory and leave. Unfortunately it never worked out that way because half-assed measures never do.

COVID is Biden's Afghanistan. He argued throughout the election that he had "a plan" to stop the virus, and now that he's in office his people are revealed to be incompetent liars. They never had a plan, and like most incompetent managers when they get desperate they start looking for easy "solutions" with lots of pretty metrics to cover it up. Getting everyone vaccinated makes for pretty charts, and allows them to claim victory and pivot to something else.

She needs to send these other parents screen shots of Bill Melugin's work if they are so concerned about covid. The risk to their children is not coming from your granddaughter. I think the vaccine is only marginally effective and only for probably 3 months, but I still went and got the first Moderna shot yesterday because I know buses have been arriving in NV full of these disease vectors who are dispersing across my city. I will take some protection for what will probably be a 2 month surge in cases over zero protection. I will also wear a good quality mask when I shop or spend time indoors with strangers for the same reason. Yes, it is only marginal protection, but marginal protection is better than none.

Look at the graphs. You'll the first two peaks of infections, daily newcases, and deaths.

On the former two, rates are now higher than they were in the first two peaks. And they had another death pop up, after none after the second peak.

And all that's happening as they are nearing 90% vaccination rates.

Put out whiteboard signs.
Write and call my elected officials
Go to protests.
And yes, I know it's terrible and useless but I do and will vote.

149 81 The problem that Abbott has and that Trump had is he's not sure his orders to disobey the judge will be followed. And if they aren't that will make him look much worse.

168 Not surprised by the judge's ruling. The info that I read about the law sounded too similar to the Arizona law that got shot down when Obama was in office.
The issue is that dealing with immigration is explicitly assigned to the Federal government in the Constitution. Ergo, any state law that explicitly targets immigrants is going to run into trouble since it steps on federal toes (even if the Feds are being completely derelict in their duty, as was the case in Arizona). Any law that wants to go after infected illegals being deployed around the state needs to perform an end run around that issue if it wants to have a chance at getting past the courts.
In short, the law needs to focus on something other than just their immigration status.

Yes, the test to prove that there is a variant virus is RNA sequencing. The variants have precise mutations at precise locations. I suspect the delta variant was intentionally created and released in India, because the Chinese government hates India. PRC mouthpieces were very, very quick to start badmouthing India when the delta variant got bad there. My undergrad is microbiology, masters is biochemistry, and my research was messing around with viral genetics. Viruses do mutate, but I am highly suspicious about the sudden appearance of exact replica clones that devastate a huge nation that had been doing so well with covid.

Behind the scenes, the same people are running the show that ran the show for Obama. They figured that the actor playing the role didn't matter too much, I guess. Or they realized the only one who would be willing to do it would be Joe.

Joe can't pull the role off. Seriously, take all of these "help or get out of the way" taglines, and replay them in your head, but with Obama's condescending, smug approach. We've dealt with this before.

240 The issue is that dealing with immigration is explicitly assigned to the
Federal government in the Constitution. Ergo, any state law that
explicitly targets immigrants is going to run into trouble since it
steps on federal toes (even if the Feds are being completely derelict in
their duty, as was the case in Arizona).


The logical end to that, since the 10th Amendment means nothing, is that EVERY law will be Federal. And the states will collect the tax money before sending the check to the Capital.

243 the Push for the vax is because the shot itself gives you covid and not a weakened one but your immune system was primed to defend the body at the same time the virus itself was given to you. yes the spike is supposed to just be an alarm bell for the immune system to go off over. But what if there are other pieces that accompany that spike and that they too develop into an actual virus.

This would account for the rapid mutation, why the vaccinated are the spreaders and why they need to have every body have the shot otherwise the differences can be examined and people can back track and see what was done. As far as being exempt from taking the shot; I saw no where on the CDC site how to go about that. It explained what conditions might make getting the shot hazardous but nothing, no protocol approved by them for you to get that exemption. DRs. notoriously do not like to sign anything attesting to someone's health or lack of it. It's an invitation to a lawsuit. So what Dr. will take a chance and say you shouldn't get the shot? And how can they justify it because justify it they will have to.

1 In those times, America had no laws and each politician ordered what was right in his own interests.

2 In the south, ranging from Arizona to Florida, Biden the Usurper ordered invading migrant hordes dispersed among his peoples, 3 and the people cried out to the sky for relief, as the migrants ate their crops, raped their women and spread a pestilence throughout the lands.

4 The leaders gathered and said "Who can stop this lawlessness and deliver our people?" and it was agreed upon that there was one man, Deathsantis, from the region of Florida in the highland village of Tallahassee who had success fighting the Liberalites. 5 So the leaders sent forth a messenger saying "It is promised that if you will lead us against Biden the Usurper and the Liberalites, we will give you control of the Southern lands as your own.

6 And so Deathsantis, told the messenger "I will lead the southern lands against the Liberalites, 7 but you must deliver unto me the heads of the NeverTrumpites in three days hence". 8 The southern leaders then sent forth an edict, promising any Horde member 40 pieces of gold for the heads of French, Kristol and the jew Goldberg.

299 DeSantis earlier this afternoon --

Responding to an attack by Biden, accusing DeSantis (and Texas Governor Greg Abbott) of failing to do "the right thing to beat this pandemic," the Sunshine State guv had a few choice words.

"Why don't you do your job? Why don't you get this border secure?," DeSantis asked rhetorically.

"Until you do that," he continued, "I don't wanna hear a blip about COVID from you, thank you."

Here's the thing. In this grand psychosis-inducing experiment we have all been given the opportunity to be a part of, the leftists will eventually adopt the language of the Macedonian content farmers. The leftists are followers and are always looking to see what thoughts and beliefs will bring them internet virtue and approval from their masters. Yes, there might be only a handful of them online. But don't fool yourself into believing that they're the only ones. A handful is all that is need for coordination of the hive mind.

Everything in your first paragraph was false. Covid is caused by a virus that was engineered in a PRC lab to make a dangerous bat virus infectious in humans. The variants are mutant forms of the original virus. I lean into the conspiracy realm on the origin of the India variant when I suspect that it was not a natural mutation but deliberately manipulated and released in a highly populated enemy to China which had achieved remarkable success in shutting down the original virus. The vaccines do not cause covid (how could they since you think covid does not exist? among other logical fallacies). The vaccines provide weak protection because they only target one protein on the surface of a complex viral particle. Weak protection is all we have against a bioweapon. A bioweapon that our government is intentionally importing and dispersing across the country via diseased illegal aliens.

Hence the need to supply them with fake support. Iirc, it was David Axelrod who popularized the use of what he called "astroturf," meaning artificial grassroots support to give the appearance of popularity, particularly to one up-and-comer from Chicago. It works and Stan appears to like it, too. I suggest it's being done on a larger and better-coordinated way by now.

Again, DeSantis begged Trump to nominate Barbara Ochoa instead. Trump was so enamored of chirpy Catholic Barbie the wouldn't listen. The man did a lot of great things. His personnel judgement is horrendous, and if he had not learned by 2020, I really do not expect improvement if he comes back.

No, it is because masks will provide you some protection. Marginal, miniscule, whatever, but marginal protection is better than zero protection. The American Chemical Society did very nice work in early 2020 on various fabric combinations and weave patterns that could work to stop virus particles. Paper surgical masks, very low. Masks with one layer of tightly woven cotton and one layer of a synthetic like polyester actually will help. The different fabrics have different electrostatic properties, which can help filter out some virus. Kleenex has made tissues infused with a viruside for years. The CDC was lying in Feb-March 2020 that masks have zero utility in blocking the transmission of respiratory viruses.
