The Morning Report - 10/13/21

swxsolidrnsc.jpg

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and even with darkness all around us there are faint glimmers of hope. And dare I hope that those flames converge and coalesce into a firestorm that lights up the world? We shall see. The front line, as it were, seems to be with the pilots, crew and employees of Southwest Airlines, perhaps even the company's CEO but I'll hold off on giving him credit for the time being. But still . . .

Chalk this up as a major victory for personal autonomy and liberty! Even while refusing to admit that resistance to vaccination had anything to do with the massive disruption to operations that occurred last weekend, Gary Kelly, CEO of Southwest Airlines, backed off from earlier policy and announced that employees who refuse to receive [Chinese] COVID gene therapy "vaccines" will not be terminated . . .

. . . Technically speaking, Kelly is correct: there is no evidence because even if pilots (and other employees) were calling in sick or using vacation time, or refusing overtime, they would not say so -- i.e., provide "evidence" -- because doing so would amount to a confession of violating the law with an illegal work stoppage. So, yes, there is no evidence, but Kelly's reversal of policy, backing away from termination for failure to vax, is hard to explain otherwise. And it is a major reversal . . .

. . . Kelly's recitation of aggravating factors causing the cancelation is correct. Keeping a tightly scheduled airline (Southwest has very quick "turnaround times" -- the time between landing and taking off for the next flight) running smoothly is a challenge at all times. On a holiday weekend with heavy travel, it is all the more intricate. But for that very reason, employees not showing up, or refusing overtime, or otherwise giving less than 100% can have a cascading effect on operations. That is what happened to Southwest (but not to its competitors) last weekend.

Hundreds of employees have been fired at United Airlines, and countless more people at other companies have lost their livelihoods, and in many cases their health insurance and unemployment benefits, for refusing to submit to having their bodies injected with a gene-altering substance that has not undergone the years of testing normally required to understand the long-term side-effects.

STOP THE PRESSES.

A federal judge in Texas issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) against United Airlines on Wednesday, blocking the airline from imposing a vaccine mandate against any of its employees in a nationwide class-action lawsuit.

According to the judicial order, which could be the first of its kind in the country against a coronavirus vaccine mandate, United Airlines is prohibited from placing employees with religious and medical exemptions on unpaid leave until October 26 while litigation continues. The judge also prohibited the airline from denying any employee requests for religious or medical exemptions. Previously, the airline did not allow employees to apply for an exemption after August 31.

Earlier in the case, the airline agreed of its own accord to postpone its vaccine mandate until October 15 for employees with exemptions during litigation. The day before the October 8 hearing, however, United filed a partial motion to dismiss, alleging the court lacked jurisdiction over the claims in the lawsuit. In order to allow the court reasonable time to respond to the jurisdictional challenge and to rule in the evidentiary hearing for a preliminary injunction, which was reset for Wednesday, the judge issued the TRO.

United Airlines originally told its 67,000 U.S. employees they must be vaccinated against Chinese coronavirus (or secure an exemption) by September 27 or face termination. As the airline's vaccine mandate stands, any employees with exemptions would still be considered employed but would be placed on unpaid leave and would lose their benefits for up to six years or until the airline deems pandemic conditions safe for unvaccinated employees to return, according to the complaint.

"It is unconscionable to force any person to undergo a medical treatment that they object to as a matter of faith," said Ken Blackwell, formerly the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission and currently with the American Constitutional Rights Union. "When so many other nations recognize that there is no medical reason for people with natural immunity to take a vaccine, it is essential that America lead the way to protect our citizens' rights on that front also". . .

. . . President Donald Trump appointee Judge Pittman is still expected to hold a hearing in the case on Wednesday, which should last approximately six hours as lawyers from both sides present their arguments. The case is one of the largest of its kind in the United States and could arguably create a domino effect and lead to other vaccine mandate cases across the country if the judge leans in favor of the airline's employees.

United Airlines was the first big airline to institute a vaccine mandate. Since then, bedlam has broken out as other airlines follow in its footsteps. Airline employees have protested across the country as companies fire employees by the thousands. Just this past weekend, Southwest Airlines was forced to cancel nearly 2,000 flights. The airline cited "staffing issues" and bad weather (there was no bad weather on record), though there was rumor pilots actually staged a mass protest and refused to fly just two days after the Southwest pilots union asked a federal judge to block the company's vaccine mandate.

One thing that should be noted is that the initial actions of United, as well as Southwest and thousands of other companies across the nation was in response to drooling Chi-Com stooge meat-puppet and tweener-groper Joey the Wonder Corpse Biden issuing an executive order mandating all companies with 100 employees or more must all take the Fauci Fix. But there is confusion as to whether or not this order was even issued or merely proposed, let alone the legality of it. Which it ain't, but go tell that to John Roberts.

While this move by Judge Pittman is certainly good news, the really good news that I was alluding to in my lead-in is the attitude of the Southwest employees.

In the wake of massive Southwest Airlines cancelations and disruptions, a whistleblower within the company reached out to PJ Media to confirm that employees, including pilots, gate agents, flight attendants, and others, are fighting back against the mandatory vaccines ordered by the federal government. "It's a coordinated protest," said the source, on the condition of anonymity.

The employees have coordinated on social media platforms and are standing up at what they believe is a pivotal moment in America that will determine whether the country remains free or slides into despotism. "We know we can stop this," the whistleblower said. "And if we don't do it now, it will be too late. Everyone is very excited! . . "

. . . But it's not just Southwest Airlines employees who have conscientious objections to mandates. According to the source, there are 22 airlines, along with truckers and other transportation employees represented in their ranks and more disruptions are to come. The employees are all joining FreedomFlyers.org, a website that was set up a few weeks ago to connect like-minded people and to fundraise for the effort of fighting against mandatory vaccines. They released a video that keeps being removed from social media but can be seen on their website. . .

. . . "It's growing by tens of thousands . . . every day. We can't even keep track," said one organizer named Shawn on Newsmax. "I had to speak out for everyone. We're all a little afraid. . . I put out the video and the response and love we've gotten from all industries has been phenomenal."

As John Lennon once posed the question "you say you want a revolution?" Well, THIS is how it starts. Forget Tea Parties and rallies and all that stuff, though I do not poo-poo political organizing out of hand. It's just that since the overthrow of the nation last November, we are no longer able to rely on regular order and political processes, since doing so presupposes a mutual respect of same by those who now openly and loudly seek our subjugation, or worse.

Somehow, someway, if the employees of Southwest and American Airlines were to galvanize around the nation's truck drivers and railroad employees - - and then unite with perhaps the nation's parents who are now being officially labeled as domestic terrorists, and so on and so on and scoobie-doobie-doobie. . Get the idea? My advice to Moloch Garland: tell Malig-Nancy Pelosi to throw in another few hundred billion because you're going to need a hell of a lot more than just the 69th Drag Queen Parachute Division and Generalissimo Vanilli Milley to put out this fire.

The absolute fiascos and catastrophic failures of this junta in its goal for absolute power will only make them lash out harder. Even without the trillions of dollars wasted and about to be wasted with these spending catastrophes, the economy is already poised for collapse. Gasoline when its available is through the roof and now, the supply chain is so fouled up we are having actual Soviet-style shortages that will be with us for months to come. But thank goodness we have new mother Peter "Puffer" Buttigieg as Secretary of Transportation and Male Breast Feeding on top of things. Or bottom?

"Where's Pete Buttigieg?" a growing number of politicians and pundits are asking.

Buttigieg, [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Biden's transportation secretary, hasn't had much, if anything, to say about the disruptive, multi-day Southwest Airlines flight cancellations that have stranded thousands of passengers; or the nation's supply chain logjam, where dozens of container ships wait off the California coast for the opportunity to unload. The backlog is partly blamed on a shortage of trucks/drivers to pick up and return the shipping containers.

"The supply chain disruption is a crisis," Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) tweeted on Monday. "This will impact every American, especially those who can least afford it. It's past time for President Biden and Pete Buttigieg to explain what they're doing about this."

In a second tweet, Cotton said: "Pete Buttigieg was completely unqualified to serve as Secretary of Transportation. But Biden still picked him. Now, Pete is absent during a transportation crisis that is hurting working-class Americans."

On Monday, Buttigieg retweeted an FAA news blurb that said: "To be clear: None of the information from Southwest, its pilots union, or the FAA indicates that this weekend's cancellations were related to vaccine mandates."

Aside from being a homosexual and a Marxist with zero experience in the area he was nominated and approved of (thanks GOP!) to run, Buttigieg's record as Mayor of South Bend is proof positive of the Peter Principle. To say he sucks is both accurate in the Biblical sense and an understatement in a Cabinet full of understatements. And yet, there he is and there we are. AND we still have very bright people who describe the situation accurately, with shocking clarity yet capping it off with calls to vote harder and, get this "Constitutional Conventions." Democrats stole a national election and the GOP legislatures and Vice President, along with the judiciary, aided and abetted the theft by abrogating their duty to stop it.

We'll have a convention all right, but it won't be a Constitutional one. It will be a convention of people not just holding a rally, no matter how massive. It will be a national strike until the point is made. G-d help us and G-d help them if they need more than that to get the message.

13 So Southwest backed down, a Fed judge slapped United across the face, and Intel is saying outright that they do not require the shot of its employees. A breathing space for all of us!

Perhaps my employer will back down too, though I am not going to count on it. Colleges and universities used to be places where people were supposed to think. Not so much any more. Of course, if their lawyers advise them to delay or drop the requirement, they may do it.

I really should have gone to law school. I'd have made an excellent attorney, even if only to defend myself and mine from sharks like these.

15 Finally understand that the entire Covid plan is to force everyone to comply with government dictates or lose all of their ability to participate in the economy or society. Couldn't figure out why they wanted people with natural immunity to get the shot; now I do. The goal always was to develop a mechanism for our overlords to control us. First fear porn. Second, force people to give up all of their basic freedoms by locking up healthy people and getting them to comply to lunacy of six feet separation and placing rags on their faces. Now, we have to prove vaccination status to work, eat at a restaurant. This is global and was the plan from day 1.

From what I've read, no executive order and no OSHA rule about the vax have appeared. It's completely fictional right now, like Biden's election win.

I know these pilots. They ain't backing down when the most known side effect of the jabs will ground them permanently. Do not plan to travel without headaches this Christmas.

Urbanites don't understand that there doesn't have to be a Starbucks in every corner. Or that Starbucks could go away entirely some day. They've lived sheltered lives, isolated from nature, and assume that all the conveniences and products of modern life just appear out of the ether. Meat comes from the grocery store.

There's no understanding of how their lifestyle exists. It's just assumed to be axiomatic.

That's "working to rule," which is also an old-fashioned "slowdown." Common union tactic when they can't - or won't - strike. Unions have an interesting history, and it might be time for a revival. We'll see. The key problem with unions as they are now (or as the were) is two-fold: first, they won. We have safe working conditions, a reasonable work week, overtime compensation for non-exempt employees, etc. They won, and therefore became useless. The other is that many of the union organizations were communists and all of them became political machinery. As a result of these (though especially the former), unions died and became a minority.

It may be time for a revival. Not for pay or working conditions and rules in most cases, but to go against management over non-work invasions. No more getting fired for personal choices (faith, social media usage, etc.), no more forced medical procedures, no more intellectual cancer like CRT, etc. I'd support and likely join such a "bright lines union" who's job was war with HR.

55 Cato, you are correct. We're all guilty of this to some degree.

"We" tend to think all this stuff is the default, that water comes out of the tap when we are thirsty, that reliable electricity is always available, the garbage gets picked up on Mondays, the stores will be stocked with the staples, the roads stay plowed in the winter, ambulance will pick me up if I get hurt, the fire department will rush to my house if needed, the police will show up if there's a burglary in process, etc etc etc.

None of that is true, all of that, and mire it was all built through great effort and needs to be maintained constantly. Civilization is hard.

Posted by: Viridian at October 13, 2021 06:54 AM (8z3Yb)

They do, but it's tremendously difficult. What has happened in China is extremely unusual (maybe unique in history) because it is artificial. They have a massive surplus male population but it happened during a reproduction crash because of the One Child Policy. That complicates matters dramatically. On a gross numbers basis, they can grind up many millions men (although many aren't so young anymore) on wars of conquest and come out ahead regardless because of their structural problems.

There are other factors, though, and the homefront might have something to say about it. The reason there are so many men is sex-selective abortion and the main reason for that is because people need someone to care for them in their old age and that means you prefer a man if you can choose only once. Moreover, you might be willing to put up with a war of conquest that chews up your kids if you have a lot of them - but if you have just one precious son and no one else, you might not be so willing. The risk of domestic strife is really high, too.

What you're describing is, in essence, a general strike or general work slowdown until things fly to pieces. I concur. Mass direct political action (actual million-man marches in cities across the land) will help make the point, but throwing wrenches into the works across industries and geographies through a de facto general strike would likely cause a response.

That response will be capitulation or aggressive escalation. I'd say that's a coin flip right now. Only one way to know.

Pork and chicken are still affordable in my area. Beef is completely ludicrous. I cracked open the piggy bank to buy a bunch of steaks a few months ago just in case. They're in the freezer and I don't indulge often. Fish is spotty - sometimes unachievable, sometimes okay. It seems to move a lot more.

That beef was an interesting exercise. I had no place store it, so I also bought a small (half-width) chest freezer on the same trip. I bought like fifteen or so pounds of steaks. They cost more than the freezer I put them in. Hamburger is still affordable for now.

It's outrageous on every conceivable level. Medicine helps a lot, but the main reason for our long lives and general good health comes down to sanitation and refrigeration.

Virtually every town and city in this country has good water. That's expensive and difficult to achieve. The places in this country where you *can't* drink tap water are few and far between. We have excellent, world-beating sewage management across the board. Clean water and taking the shit away does wonders for health. We have good physical waste management, too. People bitch about landfills, but they keep us alive and the systems around them of men taking your refuse and safely dumping it in a place where it doesn't fuck with the water is a damned *miracle.* All of this also requires gobs of energy.

Refrigeration reduces spoilage and makes a diverse diet possible. It also requires great gobs of energy. The energy alone requires the work of *millions* of men at all times. And this stuff keeps us alive and lets us thrive. And the elites take all of it for granted.

133 The problem for Southwest is that urban centers WILL ban them from major hubs if they go full anti-vax, with the complete support of the Wall Street airlines.

Then again, they are in excellent position to bring a suit against anyone who tries under the Commerce Clause.

134 It's interesting, in a sad way, that the entire 60s generations got epic conned. "Power to the People!" and "Make Love Not War" and the Berkely free speech movement and "free love" and the "Establishment". It was all a con.

Those fuckers seized power and are the worst sons of bitches. Goddamned hippies should have been ... ahem, dealt with. There's no way around this. They are in charge now, they are the ones they've been waiting for. They are getting long in the tooth, and just like the new young cannibals displaced Scoop Jackson and Hubert Humphrey and Dan Moynihan, this latest crop of revolutionaries are licking their chops waiting for Schumer and Pelosi and the nanogenerians to expire.

It is built inside one of the old historic single screen movie houses and has been there since the property was redeveloped. It is the anchor in that part of the commercial district which is now filled with empty boarded up and graffiti covered storefronts.

206 hey Jewells, if you have an Aldi near you, they usually have a decent selection of beef that's not expensive. it's not always the prime filet, but there's good options that won't break a bank. and their chicken is pretty reasonable too. i actually stop there most days on the way home from work to pick up dinner for the night.

just a thought.

What's going to support corporate earnings going into Q1 next year? The jobs picture is mixed and hard to predict for the next few quarters and spending is down with inflation. This is far from settled.

Apparently a CA policy caused this:

The NEWS says the California port situation is caused by a driver shortage. Not so fast: It is in part caused by a California Truck Ban which says all trucks must be 2011 or newer and a law called AB 5 which prohibits Owner Operators.

Traditionally the ports have been served by Owner Operators (non union). California has now banned Owner Operators. Long term, truckers in California are not investing in new trucks because California has a law that makes them illegal in 2035.

A Seattle elementary school canceled Halloween activities over concerns about student equity and inclusion. Specifically, Seattle Public Schools says Black males do not celebrate and, more generally, students of color feel marginalized by the holiday.

Ahh. The school board asserts that it is true, and thus it is true. Of course.

I've been ignoring mask mandates for a long time. How I have been treated varied widely by region and store. Costco was always full-on Karen about it about they rescinded the policy. In Denver, everyone was vicious about it. Where I am now, no one cares and hasn't cared since I moved here in February. A couple of stores pushed on the mask thing, but they were independents and not corporates. I declined to shop and when I went back to one of this summer, that crap was over even there.

It isn't so much that it bans owner operator trucks but it keeps the self-employed from having more than 5 independent gigs a month (I think) so while it is legal to be an owner operator, it isn't economically feasible.

I have said before and I still assert that Pravda and Izvestia were better than our press. Why? Simple.

Somewhere in those organizations there was at least one person who was talented - a press operator, a layout editor, etc. - who was working there at the point of a gun. There was someone who didn't want to be there, but had to show up at work and do the job or he would be thrown in a gulag or murdered.

In our press organs, every single person there is there voluntarily. They do what they do, to every last man, because they want to.

And then there's the "Other Aldi." Aldi in Germany is two companies (the original company split up due to, IIRC, a family quarrel). There is Aldi Nord (North) and Aldi Sud (South). Both also operate in the United States. The stores branded "Aldi" in this country are all Aldi Sud. The Aldi Nord stores here have a different name: Trader Joe's.

Hey, at least you got keys. One of the few times I have ever seen a guy quit on the spot (well, over the phone) was when I was visiting a customer who is a major retailer. They had a hardware fault in one of their distribution hubs. They had a part in the home office, but not in the warehouse. The vendor needed a day to get the part to the warehouse. So the retailer put the vendor's agent at their home office on a private plane with the part to send him out to get the other location back up faster than waiting for the vendor to get there.

Then they sent the plane back home. Empty. They stranded the guy at the other location. When he called from the airport and got told this, he put the retailer on hold and then called his boss and connected the calls together. That is when he told his boss that he would be removed from that account or the boss could consider this his resignation, effective immediately.

He was removed from the account.

345 I have no idea what to believe on the Southwest stuff. Everybody knows somebody who tells them "the truth." My pilot buddy says its over outdated computer systems and that SWA is trying to blame the pilots. The union is legally required to say that there is no work action since their contract says that they can't have a work action. Some pilots or pilot adjacent people are saying it IS a work action related to the mandates, but SWA says we aren't enforcing any mandates.

We have a low trust society when it comes to information.

There is certainly some evidence that The Red Thread runs right through WW2 into the USA (CIA?) and the global conquest never really stopped ... even if maybe it changed teams/localities.

We expect to just "do our civic duty" by being good citizens that show up for work and mow our yards, and then Leave It To Beaver land just magically maintains itself. -- But no, the 50s was mostly a golden post WW2 era Utopia, while the seeds of destruction were being sown. (Prescott Bush, Joe Kennedy, a long list?)

That Utopia is now under assault as White Supremacy, and being good citizens will require more than just expecting life to go back to Normal (Utopia).

And we, or more precisely, the US-As-Founded is the main obstacle in their way. Because only the US-As-Founded has the culture of freedom and the real-world power to oppose them. Therefore, the corollary to their need to Save the Planet is that the US-As-Founded must be crushed at all costs.

Yes. There are topics that are forbidden to ever discuss. This is why there are topics the GOP will not bring up or even allow to be said. Almost all so-called talk show hosts are controlled opposition. Especially people like Dan Borgino. He only drones on for hours on things that don't matter. Zero facts on mRNA (he will just say "If it works so well, why isn't it working so well") No serious talk about the election. No mention of clear collaboration to disrupt the supply chain.

The Party controls everything, and if you see something that appears to leak, look carefully at it and you will see that it too is controlled and limited to just making sure that we are left with the impression that we are all helpless and exist at The Party's pleasure.

409 Land loans are still risky and they require a large down payment to prevent 'unserious' applicants. I would already own land if this were NOT the case.

Well, sure. But try going to a regular bank to borrow for unimproved land. Farm Credit is a good way to go.

But one could ALMOST build a case that letting Resident Biden make the choices that he wished to has pretty badly damaged the Biden brand amongst many people.

Not arguing that. We went to them first......they also want the big down payment before they'll even consider talking to you.

415 They didn't care that he was a failed mayor of a shitty, dysfunctional town. He was "openly gay" and they wanted to vote for the first "openly gay" cabinet member.

417 No, they just wanted to be able to "virtue signal" that they had voted for the first "openly gay" cabinet secretary.

F*cking imbeciles.


Remember, the previous sinecure of the Department of Transportation is blood related to those within the Chinese Communist Party.

Everyone knows that Cabinet Secretary is a worthless, toothless sinecure, exists for grift, resume padding, and patronage.

Depends on the branch I guess. They will talk to you without the money up front, but it won't go very far. Terms are pretty well set. The credit union for our region wanted 15% down on a 15 year loan and 20% down on a 20.

Largely because of environment regulation. You could end up thinking you found a great deal of a property that checked off all of the boxes, then discover that if you turn over one shovel full of dirt, the EPA will throw your ass in prison and seize your property because it messed with some wildlife or happened within a watershed.

425 "A Journal for Jordan" tells the story of 1st Sgt. Charles Monroe King, a U.S. soldier who wrote a 200-page journal for his son, Jordan, while he was deployed to Iraq.
The movie, which will be released later this year, is based on the memoir of the same name written by King's fiance, Dana Canedy, who was "determined to preserve his memory for their son."
____

He was 1SG for 1-67 Armor Regiment, 2nd Brigade, 4th ID.

426 "Almost all so-called talk show hosts are controlled opposition. Especially people like Dan Borgino."

yes, he seems to spend a lot of time getting to things "we knew" two years ago. And in the news now ... hey, it wasn't the Russians that hacked DNC servers. duh, that was shown from the start (poor Seth).

imo Sidney Powell is a warrior, but not that many will stand up like her, and she is under full assault. We have the full federal government destroying lives of people that rise up to any level of threat to their junta. We are allowed to go maskless in the Hinterlands, for now, but the laws are being put in place, the cages are being built (legal and mental, if not physical).

427 Notre Dame University is pretty much isolated off from South Bend. They have their own FD and probably PD and aren't really part of the small city. I drove around the city a couple years ago, and was glad to see the leaving South Bend sign. Detroit Junior, I'd call it.

He didn't count because Trump. And also because he doesn't tweet out photos of himself and his "husband" sitting in a swing together, or pretending to birth babies together in a hospital bed.

429 Jimco. That's a bit harsh about South Bend. It doesn't in any way look like Cuba and stuck in the 50's. It's no longer a manufacturing town and it reflects that. The University of Notre Dame and the local hospital system is the biggest employer not Bendix or Studebaker. It's a nice town with areas that aren't so nice. You know like a lot of other towns in this country.
Mayor Pete didn't accomplish anything, ND got him his wins. Look at what they accomplished in the campus area, cleaning up a whole lot of nasty city blocks.
Of course he and ND displaced a lot of low income individuals, not sure where they ended up.

431 The port of LA will supposedly work 24/7 and be announced by Joe. Next up is port of Long Beach.

Problem is: all thar overtime kicks inflation up. You know who's going to pay that premium. And so, inflation kicks in even more.

435 Interesting factoids about Das Butt, Mayor Pete. His father was a professor at Notre Dame (a Catholic! university) who translated Gramsci's Prison Notebooks into English and then started a Gramsci Society to study his horrid philosophy and became the world expert on the Italo-commie. https://tinyurl.com/x9d5rmpd

But there's more! Mayor Pete's security adviser during his presidential campaign was Tarek Ghani, son of "president" Ghani of Afghanistan, a university prof in the US for his adult life, no doubt installed by the ruling class. And Tarek is married to the legislative aide of Elizabeth Warren. So Ruling Class all the way. And hey, where's all that money that Dad stole from the Afghan government on his way out the door.
