Quick Hits: Our Rights Don't Derive From the Government, We Yield Them to the Government Edition

vennracism.jpg

Joe Biden: You heard me say this before, again and again. I'm going to keep saying it. What's that idea. We donít derive our rights from the government. We possess them because weíre born. Period. And we yield them to a government."

Via Stitlons Place. Video at Gateway Pundit. Thanks to Captain Obvious, Laird o' the Sea and flounder.

Fauci held a secret meeting to "discuss the origins of covid," which he intended to keep secret forever. The existence of this meeting was only disclosed due to a FOIA demand.

Writes Allison Young:

As a reporter who has spent a decade revealing hundreds of serious safety breaches at U.S. biological research labs, it has always seemed obvious to investigate whether the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a major coronavirus research center, possibly played a role given that the initial outbreak happened in the same city.

Yet for more than a year, those who publicly raised such questions were too often deemed a crackpot conspiracy theorist or a simpleton who just didnít understand science.

It has only been in recent weeks that a growing list of high-profile scientists, intelligence officials and politicians -- including President Joe Biden -- have publicly acknowledged the plausibility of a lab accident and pushed for rigorous investigation.


Perhaps thatís because the early concerns among key scientists -- like the conference call on Feb. 1, 2020 -- were kept private until now. That call likely would have remained secret if not for documents released under the Freedom of Information Act.

The meeting did not result in Fauci saying "It came from Wuhan, but we have to cover it up."

But Fauci and the rest of the scientists involved did keep it secret because they were pushing the Narrative -- the Lie -- that there was nothing whatsoever to discuss. The science was settled.

You can't call people Racist Conspiracy Theorists for discussing the lab leak hypothesis if you're forced to admit the head of the NIAID and top virologists are also discussing it.


Chicago Mayor and screaming lunatic Groot Rootfoot declares "racism" a public health crisis.

She wants to spend $10 million of public money -- which she'll get not from Chicagoans, but from the rest of the nation -- to extend black lives.

"At almost every single point in our city's history, racism has taken a devastating toll on the health and well-being of our residents of color Ė especially those who are Black," Lightfoot said in a statement. "Without formally acknowledging this detrimental impact, we will never be able to move forward as a city and fully provide our communities with the resources they need to live happy and healthy lives."


You know what might extend black lives? Stopping crime. There's a mass shooting in Chicago -- of blacks, and by blacks -- every weekend.

All those young lives ended so quickly brings down the black life expectancy rate you pretend you're concerned with.

You're not, of course. You're just a demagogue giving the masses an enemy to hate so they don't look at your record.


Biden's nominee for the Bureau of Land Management? A former collaborator with eco-terrorists.

But combating "Domestic Violent Extremism" is Biden's top priority, you know.

For some definitions of "Domestic Violent Extremists." Antifa and BLM will be allowed to maintain control of the cities.

Stone-Manning was caught participating in a plot to "spike" spruce trees in Idaho. She gave testimony at the trial of one of her fellow eco-terrorists and was granted immunity.

Spiking trees is a favorite tactic of radical eco-terrorists and has been known to severely injure several loggers who had the misfortune of cutting into a tree that had been spiked.

Biden's proposed head of the BLM would be responsible for administering federal lands. Its purpose is "to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations." Stone-Manning apparently doesn't believe that we need trees for anything except homes for squirrels.


A steady hand at the till (being controlled by someone else):

BREAKING: Area blogger decides he'll pirate the movie rather than pay these tyrants a nickel.

Nah, I'm just kidding. I just won't watch it. Partly out of political principle, and partly because I'm not 13.

41 A thought I have had lately. In industry I learned that shitty managers always hire people just like themselves, only less so. They fear competition and want to own everyone who works for them.

It was pretty clear that SCOMF picked pedo-scum as VP because he wanted someone who was much less than he was - that is, someone who would never ever ever outshine him, and was a total loser in all ways.

And it is pretty clear that pedo-scum's team picked the whore as VP for the same reasons (plus blackish and female)

So they are in a spiral where each round they pick someone much much worse.

So who is the whore going to pick?

In Walden II, sex was for reproduction.
No marriages. Babies had no "parents." Society was the Parent. In other words, all the adults were "parents" of all the kids.

No playing with the kids. Kids had recreational time in which they could draw and paint, etc. Kids lived in a dormitory. No "homes."

Any of this sound familiar?

the maskers will not last. They are like the libs who propped up Dixie Chicks concerts for political reasons. In the end, that could not last because they hate country music or whatever the Chicks make. You can only prop up something you dislike for political reasons for so long.

So many lefties are still masking. It is not just lefties, but some people of certain groups (I hate grouping people) have bought into it so hard it will be difficult to change. But every week we have fewer people wearing the mask. The maskers will give in in the end, though there will always be bitter enders. What sucks it I see more parents fitting those masks on little kids. But most wine moms care more about peer pressure than anything. It wont be long when they are in the minority even in cities.

Speaking of, and because I know there are a lot of parents like myself trying to figure out how best to manage kids and the internet, I saw that Windscribe, the VPN company, has released a simple service that lets you customize, block, and control what comes through. Quote:

"Choose from 15 categories of filters that block ads, malware, adult content, IoT beacons, gambling sites and much more. Our bespoke block lists are extremely effective, but will not hinder your browsing experience due to false positives... Create rules for a specific web service, like Facebook, Netflix, Minecraft and many others. A single toggle switch controls all domains associated with the service."

https://controld.com/

Might be worth a try if anyone is looking for this sort of thing. I know there are geeky solutions that are free, but I could probably get my Ipad-only aunt to use it without needing to explain what DNS means.

Looks like it will redirect your usage through a proxy if that's yo thang, too.

For sure take an interest in your kids, for sure help them pursue the the things they are interested in. And for sure play with them unless you are broken somehow. But you don't want then to think you are at their beck and call. Some kids are happy with some freedom, even if that is perceived. They really can have wild imaginations and do their own thing. I was old school, any time my parents were around were the best times.

Today you have parents that drive their kids around like the parents are chauffeurs. But also, I can't stand the idea of day care til your are a late teen. If I lived that way, as I have some seen some kids live, I would have thought it a bloody nightmare.

168 Pffft, who needs to bond with their little kids? It might infringe on their "Girls' Night Out" time. Seriously, it's really sad for this lame mother's kids. There's more to her my space/your space than meets the eye. It's cold. I grew up with a dad who played all kinds of games with us. Mom not so much, but she read to me and nurtured me in so many other ways. In turn, I played games with Jr. Black when he was little. Lots of games. Read him books. Even when I didn't really feel like it. That's what parents do to nurture their kids.

i had many great experiences with my parents on camping trips, throwing a ball, etc. But they lived their own lives. My dad had way too much on the shelf so even the idea that he would lighten up was a rarity, but not that rare. I have no complaints at all to be honest.

But even at my dad's funeral, part of my eulogy was about how he always made it possible for me to pursue the things I was interested in. Mostly it was fishing, camping, and hunting. Later on it was golf but I did that on my own. We did play together many times though. Like I said, imo it is a fine line. There is no one answer. But in the end you want kids that can be self sufficient and caring I suppose. Not much more i can say here, it is just my personal experience.

250 A man has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting Gov. Gavin Newsom during his visit to downtown Oakland, authorities said Friday.

If he wasn't wearing a MAGA hat when they nabbed him, I bet he was by the time they got him to the police station.

266 In a meeting of fairly likeminded people, the guy in charge of the multi-billion dollar discretionary research budget doesn't even really have to come out and say, "I want this buried" for it to be buried. The people on that call were smart enough to know why Fauci wanted to have that urgent teleconference in the first place.

Fauci's not in a CIA threat assessment team or whatever, so he doesn't really need to concern himself with whether the virus is natural or not ... except for one reason (avoiding blame).

On the radio they announced the local celebration would feature local black leaders who had done work in the black community. None of which has anything at all to do with slavery. It's going to be a black thing, just like the Black National Anthem, to try to make blacks feel separate from other Americans.

Just another brick in the divisive wall.

279 actually, let me revise:

Cereal School low-cal cereal was the lamest.

Magic Spoon was in the middle.

High Key was the best.

There's another one called Catalina Crunch. Two of the flavors, like the Golden Graham flavor and the Cinammon toast flavor, were pretty good. The others were not good at all. The chocolate one was particularly disappoitning.

282 I think it's a good thing that they're blaming whites outright for Blacks under performing compared to other races.

Maybe we can finally get that conversation where they blame the Whites and the Whites (now being pushed hard) will now ask about why Blacks themselves are directly responsible for much of what damages the Black community and why the entire community complains about it but does nothing to stop or abate it.

Probably not.

283 Chicago is fucking toast if it doesn't get a handle on street crime. Sooner or later, they'll have a warlord, which will probably be an improvement on this mayor. Posted by: Methos at June 18, 2021 04:53 PM (kOpft

Before you know it, gangs will maintain law and order on their turf and the city law enforcement apparatus will let them, out of inability to do anything else. Chicago is shockingly segregated between different ethnic groups. It is often very obvious where one group/gang stops and the next one starts. People do not even cross the wrong street. It's not much of a leap to envision Chicago as Beirut or Belfast.
