The Morning Report - 7/31/20

silverscum.jpg

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and the end of July. Already. We're still having to deal with much of the citizenry fearing for its life thanks to a massive and successful psychological warfare operation that has convinced them that a virus that is marginally more dangerous than seasonal flu is an extinction level event that warrants masks, environmental suits and the self-inflicted destruction of our economy in order to cope with it. Naturally, the magic bullet is defeating Donald Trump and instituting the overnight final transformation of the last vestige of America as founded into a totalitarian, socialist hell-hole.

As an aside, I realize the late Herman Cain died from the Chinese Lung AIDS. But what the cranks, crackpots and trolls won't tell you is that he was a senior citizen, as is the overwhelming majority of victims of this and other respiratory viruses including common colds, a cancer survivor with a compromised immune system, and as a black person might also be more genetically predisposed to be more vulnerable (though I can't confirm that with 100% certainty). With 150,000 victims - assuming that that is an accurate and honest count, which I seriously doubt - out of a population of nearly 320 million, do the math.

Circling back, the cries for more draconian, almost medieval measures and reinstituted lockdowns grow shriller and louder even as now an overwhelming torrent of evidence from doctors and other honest "experts" is pouring in, both confirming the uselessness and danger of the aforementioned measures as well as the real magic bullets: HCQ as a treatment and prophylaxis as well as getting back to normal human interaction to spur herd immunity. See: Sweden. Yes, the Sweden that Bernardo Sandersnista and every other filthy socialist hack is always screaming about insofar as America should be emulating it. The silence from those quarters now about that country is deafening.

The science and statistics are in. Lockdowns and masks are dangerous to our health and wellbeing - physically, mentally, and societally. Yet still, the Democrat-Media Complex persists.

And speaking of persistent, as in cancerous anal warts, the Democrat-Media Complex was absolutely orgasmic over the economic numbers that came in yesterday. Evidently the economy - thanks to its self-imposed strangulation which had nothing to do with the Trump administration's previous 3-year economic miracle - contracted by 33%. What the propagandists conveniently don't tell you is, while the downturn is nothing to cheer, it's 33% ANNUALIZED, not in the last quarter alone. Cue Richard III's line about lawyers and substitute in journalists (lawyers now come second).

So, while we're all sitting at home, watching our government add trillions of dollars of more debt in a comparative nanosecond to the trillions accumulated during both the Dubya and Obama years as businesses large and small collapse and die, switching the channel we are greeted with the sight of American (or all things considered, anti-American) cities in the hands of bona fide, dictionary definition (dictionaries published more than 10 years ago, that is) terrorists/insurrections burning them to the ground while the "journalists" and gigantic fat-bergs of greed and power-lust tell us that what we're seeing is either a "myth" or it's a result of evil police officers arresting innocent, patriotic citizen protesters.

Lest we forget the "mostly peaceful" protests, which are rapidly becoming a mostly peaceful mash-up of Kristallnacht and Dresden, are supposedly as a result of the death of a career criminal at the hands of Minneapolis police over Memorial Day weekend. In point of fact, we have yet another psychological warfare operation insofar as a problem that is created by Democrats in Democrat controlled cities and states (bad policing and the generational immiseration of American blacks) is used as a pretext to blood libel America as founded, free market capitalism, Judeo-Christianity, and non-colored persons into putting 244 years of its history, and 2,000 years of societal development into an oven and turning on the gas... and liking it. And woe betide anyone who objects.

Lowest of the low, representing what I just stated were the actions of the NBA.

On a court that says in large black letters, "Black Lives Matter," every player, coach, and referee in attendance at the Thursday evening Utah Jazz v New Orleans Pelicans NBA game took a knee during the national anthem...

The kneeling from the NBA players and staffers comes the day after a bombshell ESPN report outlined alleged abused [sic] of children at NBA youth training camps in China.

"Every player, coach and ref takes a knee during the national anthem before the Pelicans-Jazz game," Bleacher Report posted on Thursday night...

There is no difference between the black-clad Antifa terrorists who firebomb courthouses, George Soros who is no doubt financing much of this terrorism, "reporters" who lie to our faces, and the likes of LeBron James and Adam Silver, who allow this debasement and defiling of the nation that made their success possible. In fact, they are quite possibly even more reprehensible and contemptible than the brain dead youth with the Molotov cocktails.

They're not only a mortal enemy. They. Are. Scum.

Yet they ALL persist. Our grandchildren's school district has disregarded CDC and American Academy of Pediatricians recommendations that kids should go to school, and now it's all virtual learning. Because sitting a second grader in isolation in front of a computer screen for 7 hours a day is the way to go, dontcha know. So now Grandma is pulled out of retirement to teach three wee ones. I love them, but not that much.


And starting today, all of Wisconsin is under a mandatory mask order for all indoor spaces. Lawmakers are exempt. of course.

150,000 deaths / 320 million people = .00046875.

Or, not even 5 deaths in 10,000. This is assuming the 150K figure is correct and not inflated/conflated with other causes (and we know it is).

35 While I support outing Soros at every available opportunity, and think the lazy DOJ should prosecute his ass, it's important to remember that he is not alone and that Arabella Advisors encourages activist philanthropy and is the funding conduit for plenty of the anti-police activities. They happily sponsor action against policing and say so on their site. Much of the big money goes through them and the small donations through ActBlue. The administration is making a huge mistake by not outing the "elites".

On the face of it, toppling Lincoln's statue seems (and is) stupid, but there's a more sinister reason. The Maoists believe that to leave Lincoln standing is a tacit admission that America is redeemable or has been redeemed by the actions of Lincoln and others. They can't allow that because it goes against the meme that America is irredeemably evil and must be destroyed, even despite the actions of Lincoln.

80 Anyone who continues to watch professional sports at this point is a. ignorant, b. simple-minded, c. weak-willed, or d. downright malignant. Some combination of the four is also acceptable.

This includes going to bars and restaurants during games, reading sports journalism, continuing to follow sports pages (even Barstool) on social media, or doing anything other than excising this bullshit from your life, permanently, at least until it all crashes and burns, and good people rescue sports from the flaming pile of wokeness it has become.

And stop saying "it doesn't matter if I don't watch, others still will" or "I was here first, I have followed Team X since the 70's". Those are excuses. "My wife cheated on me and her boyfriend shit on my pillow, but it doesn't matter if I leave her, she will just bang him anyway." That is what you sound like.

95 I may be mistaken (I'm not a historian) but I don't believe America has ever been in a worse position with respect to its class of leadership. One entire party is mostly openly or at least tacitly supporting the nation's most formidable enemy. Most of this party demonstrably hates America and its central premise of individual liberty. The other party -- our ostensible champions -- is nearly all bought and paid for by lobbyists either working for our enemy or for ignorantly agnostic and soulless profiteers.

The full list of the other criteria of moral collapse is considerable -- a morally bankrupt and politically subversive education system, a largely civically illiterate populace, and a journalistic industry that has completely trashed its critical ideal of objectivity with anti-American activism also in support of the nation's enemies.

The only apparent hopes are a historically unique President who seems to understand these threats (despite being tied down Lilliputian-style), and an alleged "silent majority" which so far resembles more of a not-so-loud minority.

I've been working with the grandsons since school abruptly ended, not long after Rosenstein's sister, called for parents to insist that schools prepare for telelearning.

This year was not bad. The school provided virtually nothing and I was free to follow my own path. In September, I think the 2nd grader will have more "face time" for what that's worth. I bought a nice selection of material, and have already started, plus I bought access to he Epic platform so they can access books without worrying about the library's stupidity.

So if they give kindness breaks for the boards too and all these forgiveness deadlines we're in good shape. Also, the more supervision I get to do, the more he learns.

2) He stopped the shutdown early because the Democrats were warning about plane crashes- by which I mean threatening plane crashes. I no shit believe if the President tried a Swedish approach, the Dems would have used bioweapons to terrify Americans into accepting a coup, because why the fuck not?

Assassination is an "odd job." It pays well. He's nine; he'd be tried as a minor, and he'd probably enter prison as the most badass nine-year-old to go up the river in a long, long time. He could even become a mascot. A leader. A prison emperor.

182 To all the grandparents who will have the scenario of becoming their grandkids' teachers now being foisted upon them thanks to the wuhan flu panic, please consider two perspectives:

The Patriotic Perspective -
HOT DAMN!!! Your grandchildren are now FREE of systemic leftist indoctrination! In other words: you are saving your grandkids from brainwashing. YOU get to teach them to appreciate this country; to know it's history -it's REAL history, not the made up bs the left pretends is history...you can teach the history that you have lived through; to teach them actual reading; math; and how to make a complete sentence. These are all things that schools have been neglecting to teach...especially the part about appreciating this country. There are lots of great online home school programs to help you, especially the Seton Home School (Catholic based). How great that the USA can now reclaim a generation thanks to homeschooling! For this all of us owe you our thanks.

The Grandkids' Perspective-
Your grandchildren will not see that this was an inconvenience to Gma and Gpa. Your grandkids will remember you as being awesome, because you were THERE for them. There is nothing on the planet like having a grandparent in your life, and those kids who get to spend time with their grandparents are truly blessed. ( and almost all of of them know this, especially when they grow up.)

183 I don't think Trump is a germaphobe. He never wore a mask until recently (under certain duress) and loved the rallies and interactions.

I think instead he's a soft touch and can be credulous with experts. When they came to him about the virus in their dire predictions, he reacted as he thought he needed to on behalf of Americans.

The real problem seems to me not replacing Fauci or inviting in other challenging experts (which would have embarrassed and degraded Fauci and led to his leaving). Also, appointing Pence rather than someone like Grenell as the lead figure.

I've never read anything on Trump's management style but I assume he's used to having single people reporting to him on individual topics and not figuring out the consensus thing to do from a variety of people.

208 In looking at the covid stats in Texas, I noticed a big surge in deaths recently. Found out the reason - under "Pressure" (from Abbott?) Texas agreed recently to change the way it counts Covid deaths; before, it was required that confirmation of death by covid be documented. Now, since critics said that resulted in an "undercount", any claim that a person died of Covid will be automatically accepted, with no verification required. Not surprisingly, reported deaths immediately jumped 30 - 40 %.

Is that face shield with or without a muzzle? I'm gonna try a face shield as an alternative to a mask because I can only wear a mask for about 20 minutes at a time and face coverings are required at work.

There is no way this ends in November. Absolutely none.

This is a race to the bottom now. Who can signal their virtue the loudest ? No different than safety rules at any worksite. Do the rules ever roll back ? Do the precautions ever get deemed good enough ?

Of course not. There is always a motivation for the rule makers to make more rules - just as an insurance agent always wants to sell you another policy and a lawyer always sees an opportunity to file another case.

It won't end with a face mask. Or a vaccine. Or a frigging bar code indicating your antibody status. It. Will. Never. End.

Second City Cop:

A carjacking suspect being transported in a police vehicle to the
25th District police station at Grand and Central opened fire Thursday
morning in the station's prisoner loading bay, wounding three officers,
one seriously, sources said.



Police sources said the shooter is a 25-year-old felon paroled just three months ago. He's been sentenced to prison four times, according to court records. He's been convicted of illegal gun possession by a felon and aggravated assault with a vehicle. He also has two felony drug convictions.





3 months ago? hmmm....why would this angel have been released 3 months ago? Oh yes, Jabba the Pritkzer released over 4,000 criminals including murderers from prison so the poor dears wouldn't get Flu Manchu. I wonder how many of the innocent lambs were the rioters, looters, and have been shooting up the city?

265 Of course y'all know that there was a pre-coordinated effort to monopolize and control the information about the virus and to use it to subdue the population. Trump could only do so much to counter that and has had to work within the limitations of the population's misperceptions. If he disregards the manufactured ignorant panic, people think he doesn't care. If he directly contradicts the "experts" then he is anti-science. So he has been limited to trying to gently guide us out of the panic while being sensitive to people's fear.

My sister works at a local hospital as does a good friend of hers. We were all chatting together at a get together last weekend (sans masks BTW) and they both mentioned that while they have had several staff come down with COVID recently, all of the cases were very mild, fever and slight headache for a few days, and that was it. No respiratory symptoms, nothing else. They both said that they believed the outbreak has been greatly exaggerated, at least in our corner of the world. Anecdotal evidence I know, but still.

307 Personally, I think the mask has introduced an additional vector for the Wu. This is based on anecdotal observation, so take it with a grain of salt. I've made it a point to observe the mask-wearing behavior of people around me in public places. A good example here is the grocery store. I have witnessed many people constantly adjusting their masks with their hands, and those hands then are placed on the handles of their shopping cart. The act is then repeated. Additionally those hands are used to inspect and load grocery items into said cart. Soon, the hands go to the mask adjustment once again. Thus, if the Wu can indeed survive on inanimate surfaces, or the mask wearer is a carrier, the virus is potentially being exchanged in this manner. I'm no scientist but it seems to me that this is just common sense.

My guess would be to give the face shields a push. The Left always pushes.


I don't believe the Left is going off some master plan, anymore than I think Trump is playing Nth Dimensional Chess. I think it's simple. The Left sees an opening that, frankly, too many Establishment Republicans are more than happy to go along with - both at the party level as well as everyday life.

They figure they've won masks. So now it's time to go for something else. Which is why it's so damn stupid to give in to them on anything.

331 >>I guess it suggests that all these measures are stupid. But that wasn't my point. I was trying to explain and/or understand Trump's decision making.

For decades we have been telling Americans to follow the guidance of medical experts when it comes to public health issues. It is ingrained in the national conscience. And this goes for most developed countries around the world.

These institutions have become very powerful (and very corrupt) with massive government funding and they all work together around the world in lockstep. All of them bow down before the WHO when it comes to pandemic issues and the WHO is now controlled by China. Even knowing how corrupt it has become and dominated by our enemy many Americans just follow them like drones.

Couple that with Trump rightly saying that states need to make local decisions based on local conditions and a weaponized Democrat party looking for anyway possible and you have a perfect storm of an issue the left can use to beat on Trump and Republicans.

Trump rarely wears a mask so the germaphobe thing doesn't work. He's called for states to open as fast as possible and for schools to open in the fall and the left is fighting him every step of the way because they care more about politics and power than kids.

This situation is like having a natural disaster hitting the country for going on 6 months now with half the country working to make it worse by prolonging it because November is coming and they are desperate to get rid of Trump. We're in a war for the soul of the country and only one side seems to know it. Trump knows it.

Yes, and in the meantime, the mask has acted as a collector, concentrator, and a wam, moist incubator of all the germs the person is exhaling. So the person touches a very germy mask before touching all the public surfaces.

When we simply exhale into the free atmosphere, the viral load is instantly diluted by the air. Anyone coming into contact with that only gets small doses that can be easily dispatched by their immune system,

Well, I don't see much of that, either. When this first started, the stores in my area had employees wiping down the carts as they were returned. That lasted about a week. The same stores featured spray bottles of alcohol along with paper towels for patrons to wipe down their own carts or baskets. That lasted about two weeks. I guess I'm just saying that it is my firm believe that all of these existing and proposed draconian measures that purportedly help to "keep us safe" are for the most part a grand illusion.

396 208 In looking at the covid stats in Texas, I noticed a big surge in deaths recently. Found out the reason - under "Pressure" (from Abbott?) Texas agreed recently to change the way it counts Covid deaths; before, it was required that confirmation of death by covid be documented. Now, since critics said that resulted in an "undercount", any claim that a person died of Covid will be automatically accepted, with no verification required. Not surprisingly, reported deaths immediately jumped 30 - 40 %.

Got a call from my new doc yesterday. It's time for another appt. I don't particularly like him and certainly don't trust him. I'm fairly certain he'll want to test me for ChiCom Wu-flu, but I don't trust any test anymore since there's no way to know for certain if it's accurate. If I were to test positive and get quarantined, I'd be out of commission for two weeks, which is unacceptable as I'm B'Gal's sole caregiver. NFW I'm getting dragged into that system for any reason.

Posted by: Zod


I have been off it for over two years now. I saw my cardiologist two weeks ago and I asked about a substitute, per advice of my regular doc. Cardiologist said there was nothing in my current stats which suggested any need for a replacement as my blood pressure was within normal limits. We both agreed that I need to reacquire the discipline that I formerly exhibited and bring down my weight by twenty pounds.

He is a "minimize drugs in favor of lifestyle changes" practitioner, as am I. Mrs. KvC has learned that for me to request medication for, say, a headache means that it has to be a pretty bad one.

My BFFs stepson worked for a non profit right after college for 5 years in Africa building schools, teaching hygiene, etc. he finally quit because he was disillusioned by how little he was accomplishing. He recently got an email saying the non profit was being shut down. The reason was that the non profit had failed to put support of the BLM on their website, and so BLM had declared them a racist operation! Their whole mission was to improve the lives of Africans, and they were declared racist!
