The Morning Report - 10/25/21

faucimengelemastr.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and I apologize in advance for the disturbing nature of this post but it's something that just cannot be ignored. If you're a bit squeamish, perhaps skip directly to the links.

Anthony Fauci continues to be revered as some sort of oracle of wisdom and compassion, despite all the evidence to the contrary. The needless deaths of hundreds of thousands due to his politicization of AIDS should have sent him into obscurity (if not prison) decades ago. Yet still he persists despite the confirmation of his partnering with and funneling cash to the Red Chinese to create biological weapons in Wuhan and elsewhere. It's somewhat ironic that with far too many on the left eschewing marriage, children and families (the sick homosexual mafia's wearing of the institution of marriage as a skin-suit while demanding respect notwithstanding) to become "pet parents," perhaps this bit of disturbing news might finally be the thing that knocks him off his pedestal. The propaganda machine that keeps him and the junta protected notwithstanding.

"Our investigators show that Fauci's NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive," the non-profit White Coat Waste project told reporters. "They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies," all to test an "experimental drug."

White Coat Waste also claimed that some of the dogs had their vocal cords removed so their barking would not disturb the attending scientists. Rep. Nancy Mace fired off a letter to the National Institutes of Health, calling the cordectomies "cruel" and a "reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds." Mace is a South Carolina Republican but signatories to her letter included Democrats Cindy Axne, Steve Cohen, Jimmy Gomez, Josh Gottheimer, Ted Lieu, Mike Quigley, Lucille Roybal-Allard, Terri Sewell and Eleanor Holmes Norton, plus more than a dozen Republicans, including Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick and Maria Salazar. . .

. . . The late Angelo Codevilla, a former staffer with the Senate intelligence committee, quickly pegged Fauci as a "deep state fraud." In more than 50 years in government, Dr. Fauci never once had to face the voters. This is the person most responsible for wrecking the booming Trump economy and locking down the workers. The NIAID boss, now 80, showed little if any concern for the suffering Americans were forced to endure. Here is a medical doctor who first causes harm, so it makes sense that such a person would spend taxpayer dollars to torture beagles in Tunisia.

I'm not a doctor. I'm not a scientist. But the knowledge that I do have as well as my understanding of the world makes it obvious that there can be no possible legitimate reasons for aiding and abetting a regime bent on global domination in the creation of what amounts to H-bomb-lethal plague or the torturing of animals. It's evil, straight up. Not that it would have made a difference if this "research" was done here in the US considering what went on for decades in the charnel houses of Kermit Gosnell and Ulrich Klopfer.

There are agencies, sub-agencies and departments that are funded year after year to the tune of billions that evidently do nothing but look the other way as both the unborn and in many cases their mothers are slaughtered in conditions that make the stereotype "back alley and a coat hanger" seem like the Mayo Clinic in comparison.

Same with Fauci and the other little Eichmanns and Mengeles who also declare they "love humanity, but hate people." Even if there was an iota of a scintilla of a speck of logic for putting beagles through this -- and I don't think there is -- I'd rather deal with whatever consequences there are in being denied the alleged medical miracles that supposedly would arise. What Fauci and his ilk are engaging in is not science. It is neither hyperbole nor exaggeration to invoke Eichmann and Mengele. The regime that Fauci is in bed with employs slave labor and has concentration camps populated by not only Uighurs but Christians as well as anyone who poses a threat to the Red Chinese. It would not surprise me in the least if his pals in Wuhan are doing the same thing with their "guests" - the ones who make Nikes for Kaepernick and LeBron and computers for Tim Cook and Bill Gates for pennies a day, if that - as is being done to those beagles in Tunisia.

In what was to be known as the "Finest Hour" speech on the eve of the Battle of Britain, Winston Churchill declared:

. . . if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science."

Beyond Fauci, and now truly disturbed tyrants like this psycho broad in New Zealand . . .

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern admitted she wants to create two classes of citizens based on Chinese coronavirus vaccination status.

During an interview with the NZ Herald on Friday, a reporter asked Ardern if her goal is to create two classes of citizens with New Zealand's "traffic light" system, which Ardern unveiled Friday morning.

"So you've basically said, you probably don't see it like this, but two different classes of people -- if you're vaccinated or unvaccinated. You have all these rights if you are vaccinated --" NZ Herald's deputy political editor Derek Cheng asked Ardern.

"That is what it is, yep," Ardern replied.

. . . We still have Moloch Garland and a not-so-secret Secret Police still holding misdemeanor trespassers virtually incommunicado for months on end, and now labeling everyone from parents angry at the brainwashing of their children, and the actual rape of their children by boys declaring themselves to be girls and demanding to be treated as such. Ignore that tumescent, throbbing penis under that skirt, hater, lest you be tossed into the gulag.

"Yep" indeed. The perverted science is settled.

18 Wasn't there another Fauchi dog experiment story that came up a few months ago? Something about what they were doing to the dog's eyes.

A lot of people care more about dogs than people. I can't say I blame them. Will this be the thing that takes Fauci down? The media will spin it as " everybody does it".

If the test was necessary/effective and the drug/procedure was important, than fine. I may be heartless, crass or sinister, but animals are not as important as humans. If the drug/procedure worked, and what it treated was severe, and if the tests served a reasonable purpose that was not reliably testable using other methods, then I'd make the same choice any day of the week.

The problem is that these people are incompetent and evil and don't respect life at all, let alone human life. I have zero confidence (by default) that the condition they were seeking to treat was severe, or that their treatment appeared to be effective, or that the animals served any purpose beyond malefactors' general-purpose bloodlust.

Tunisian Islam, and Maghrebi Muslims in general, is much more live and let live than their Ay-Rab cousins. Their fits of hatred and violence seem to be generally held back for their former colonial oppressors (yeah, yeah, i know, but let's face it France sucks). There certainly are cranks who take up residence there, but headchoppy islam isn't quite as widespread along the southern Mediterranean as in other places.

66 Science Says What's Really Compassionate Is Encouraging People With Gender Dysphoria To Love Their Real Bodies
++++
The tremendous double-standard is extremely apparent here: anorexia. Anorexia is a mental disorder. The anorexic thinks she is fat and starves herself so as to be not-fat. To the people who are not her, she is dangerously skinny and it is clear that her self-perception is wrong. So she is treated - hopefully - for the condition, and most of is psychological or psychiatric to fix her incorrect perception of reality. She is not fat and is in fact underweight to the point of presenting serious health risks.

Yet with transgenderism, the opposite treatment is prescribed. The transgendered person is correct, and he should take drugs and have surgeries to force his body to reflect his perception. The elites and the institutions look at the former *and* the latter with the same attitude of "this is the right thing to do." Because our elites and institutions, while evil, are also deranged and psychotic.

Because humans are hard to control and when they snap, they often do so intelligently. If you're researching torture methods for use against men, doing the coarse tuning and development in apes is likely much safer than jumping right to the grand prize.

71 Fauci's defense "Don't believe your lying eyes: The EcoHealth documents don't say what their print claims"

It doesn't do the soul any good to listen to demons speak, and for that reason I will turn off a program and refuse to listen to audio of people who are clearly demonic. This policy has served me well.

The downside of this policy is to miss hearing and seeing the signs trained interrogators interpret to provide a certain level of meta data to the testimony. In one sense it would be instructive to witness this demon's work, but to me the man has zero credibility as a pathological liar and I seriously wonder why anyone gives that psychopath the time of day.

Yep. If you're a normal, decent person, it's hard to wrap your brain around the capacity others have to inflict torture and pain on another living creature.

TBH, I read this beagle story several weeks ago. I don't have the capacity to convey how horrific it was to read what these poor dogs went through. I was deeply sickened, deeply hurting for them. Only the sickest, foulest people could do such things. Fauci is nothing short of a Mengele to me. You'll not convince me otherwise. I hope the day comes when he (and they) pay dearly for all this.

84 From the City Journal piece:
.. the heart of the matter is the post-pandemic buying surge. Consumers in the United States and around the world, having spent little during the lockdowns and quarantines and with sometimes-generous government checks in hand, have ratcheted up buying ...
A shortage of workers has worsened the strain and ... government polices ... have encouraged others not to work.

++++
The only true economic miracle was Postwar Reconversion when we faced a larger version of the problem called out in the first excerpt. People returning home, war production standing down, people flush with cash and looking to spend after the lean War years. Inflation and supply crunch was the likely outcome, but it didn't manifest. Why not? Because Reconversion happened - in essence, the latter part of that excerpt did *not* happen.

We had lots of industries. We had an open labor market. We had little to no non-Social-Security subsidies outside of the GI Bill. The market plugged the holes and the government spending stand-down was smooth but not a switch-flip (the Marshall Plan was instrumental for that reason alone).

It did slow them down. They were small scale and one-on-one or one-on-several. Sacking a city or rounding up enemies in one city or country and torturing them is a contained process. The Japanese were barbarians throughout Asia, though Nanking was a standout - and it blew up on them. They were constantly counter-attacked (not well or effectively, but it was pretty continuous) and not one Imperial tax collector in the countryside breathed easily. The moment that the evil white man turned the tide of the war, the Japanese were consistently slaughtered by angry natives.

What Fauci and his ilk want is global-scale terror and slavery. That requires mechanized, industrial-scale, repeatable, depersonalized methods. The Nazis had the same problem, and solved it in essentially the same way.

98 Yet with transgenderism, the opposite treatment is prescribed. The transgendered person is correct, and he should take drugs and have surgeries to force his body to reflect his perception. The elites and the institutions look at the former *and* the latter with the same attitude of "this is the right thing to do." Because our elites and institutions, while evil, are also deranged and psychotic.

That is an interesting secular way to look at it, but from a spiritual aspect, anorexia is not in the immediate category of defying God. "God created them male and female". That phrase is an abomination to the Miseotheists. The whole issue of pornea which is abuse of the body giving it up to degradation and perversion through sexual sin is a direct attack at Imago Dei, and thus I would think is where the real motivation comes from. Not a simple blind double standard, but the usual rebellion against a Holy God.

Well, about 15% of them. The other 85% will die. Behind every unit of production is a unit or energy. Without that energy, production collapses and people starve and freeze to death. Our entire modern civilization rests on three cornerstone things and all three of them require enormous gobs of reliable, affordable energy. They are refrigeration, transportation and sanitation (clean water and removing sewage and garbage). If you don't have those three things, nothing else matters and everything else falls to the side. Industrial civilization ends without those three things, and those three things end without reliable, constant energy production.

It was our manufacturing advantage. It was our lifestyle advantage. It was our wealth advantage. Well, that combined with economic and personal liberty to actually put it to work and make it do things we want (for a counter-example, look at energy-rich places like Venezuela or even Russia for how much energy *can't* solve without a major enabler in the form of philosophy).

The irony of all this is - take away refrigeration, sanitation, and transportation ... and you take away the ability to achieve the sustainable population densities we have today. And without that - you take away the urban collective mindset that is absolutely necessary to breed a populace that supports today's globalist agenda.

Someone (I can't recall who) DID ask about truthful reporting from grant recipients, along the lines of "has a grant recipient ever lied to you and not reported actual results?", and Fauci (just as you say) was non-plussed about how to answer. He saw it as a trap, and tried to pretend again the GoF research never happened, though it was reported to NIH (and him) exactly as it happened.

148 "This is a supply problem that is quite easily fixed, but governments do not want it fixed."

Every shortage we are currently facing is government manufactured.


I strongly disagree that the "supply problem is quite easily fixed". The statement itself is a clear admission of a lack of understanding of the depth and breadth of the problem. Simply thinking its a matter of offloading ships more efficiently is to fail to appreciate the complexity of changing a decade of orthodoxy in intermodal transportation and warehousing models that must shift from favoring efficiency to resiliency.

But yes, inviting the government in to "fix the problem" will result in millions of more deaths and widespread misery of those not in The Party.

I'm not so sure that the elites and institutions look at anorexia as a bad thing. Think of all the money made by Hollywood and "beauty" magazines by telling girls and women who are larger than size 0 that they are "fat" and need to look like the emaciated "models" in magazines and Hollywood.

One example I can think of for Hollywood is Kate Bosworth. She became famous when she was in the surfing movie "Blue Crush" in 2002 when she was 18. In that movie she had a healthy, athletic physique. But after that, her physique became less athletic and more like the emaciated "models" in "beauty" magazines. I blame Hollywood culture for that.

169 And of course the Fed buying Treasury paper with QE money is inflationary. It always has been and always must be. It is mechanically more complicated than the government printing money directly to finance itself, but it is essentially similar. The Fed - which controls the main currency (electronic and paper) - creates new cash and buys government securities with it. The government spends that new money and injects it into the economy. The economy responds to new money the same way it always does.

A quarter of the deficit - about - is financed directly with QE. So last year's ~$1.4 trillion in deficits was comprised of $350 billion - or approximately 1.7% of GDP - of new money. And it isn't a one-off. Pouring that new money in while production is rising is bad enough, but pouring it in while production is declining is disastrous.

193 Dr. Fauci was appointed Director of NIAID in 1984. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat established infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis and malaria as well as emerging diseases such as Ebola and Zika. NIAID also supports research on transplantation and immune-related illnesses, including autoimmune disorders, asthma and allergies. The NIAID budget for fiscal year 2021 is an estimated $6.1 billion.

Dr. Fauci has advised seven Presidents on HIV/AIDS and many other domestic and global health issues. He was one of the principal architects of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program that has saved millions of lives throughout the developing world.

Everything is always fine until it isn't. Our supply chain was and is very brittle. Highly efficient, but non-robust. When you make things in every region and buy things from everywhere in the world - often the same things from different manufacturers - you have robustness but inefficiency. We've been eroding robustness in favor of efficiency for a generation or two. As a result, anything going wrong - like port throughput in California, which serves most of your capacity from Asia which supplies most of your imports - or a labor shortage in one sector, or a regulatory problem in a subordinate industry like trucking, or a change in demand that wasn't planned for, or any number of other things causes things to fracture. We do not have a resilient physical economy.

The ones really designing all this think that automation and a handful of technicians will take care of it while the useless eaters get purged. They envision a high tech, AI-driven system with relatively few operators and most of the production output accruing to the masters at the top who will also employ the handful of people needed to keep the wheels turning. They're very, very reckless and arrogant and quite possibly also stupid.

Their dream world is not possible. Things don't work as well as people think. The Internet (and software more generally) is a half-baked joke that only works because many millions of people work 24/7 to continuously put it back together again because it's always flying into pieces. There are too many things robots and automation cannot do. Flip your switch and the light comes on. Why? Because millions of people from miners to manufacturers to linemen to countless others are working around the clock.

220 Have you seen the POL requirements of a windmill every 6 months? Fill the back of a pickup truck.

Every utility I've worked with that has a wind turbine fleet tells me the same thing - less than a 20% utilization rate. Buy a 1 MW turbine, and you get a yearly average of about 200 kW out of it over the course of the year - due to downtime as well as a less than optimal wind conditions.

I know of several utilities that are cannibalizing them now - with no intention of ever replacing them. It's an awful investment with no realistic rate of return. Hasn't stopped them from shutting down the equivalent capacity in coal power, though.

Going to make for some cold, dark winters in the near future. Americans just don't get it - we're going to have rolling blackouts in the next ten years.

I've mentioned it before, but I'm friends with the superintendent of a BIG water treatment plant in Charlotte.

He got a call from a woman in one of the nicest, wealthiest areas - Charlotte, remember, so $10M would be slumming it - to let him know that her house was no longer receiving hot water from the plant.

"Ma'am, you have a closet somewhere in your home. In it is a hot water heater. You need to check to see if the breaker has tripped or if the water heater needs replacing."

His presidency's greatest achievement is revealing how cucked our entire nation and institutions has become. The infestation of oligarchic insurrectionists throughout our government is not Trump's doing. It was Trump's presence that made them reveal themselves. Now you know what you're up against. Seemingly, the only answer to their treason is to return Trump to the WH. Can anyone suggest a better warrior?

Not to mention perverse incentives. There is a ton of subsidy money to put up windmills. There is essentially no subsidy money to maintain or repair them.

Decades ago, the big environmental groups all opposed open borders, for all the obvious reasons: allowing unlimited numbers of people to flood into the U.S. would have a devastating effect on the U.S. environment.

But as soon as multi-millionaire donors starting demanding that they withdraw their opposition to open borders or lose their funding, the environmental groups did a 180, and now they support open borders, despite the obvious contradiction.

Victor Hanson wrote a piece a few years ago about how California will fine the ass off a citizen whose car doesn't comply with the latest crazy CA emissions standards, while they routinely ignore Mexican illegals who dispose of their old washing machine by loading it on the back of their broken-down, non-emissions compliant, unregistered pick-up truck, and drive the broken washing machine down to the nearest river to toss it in.

Not blaming Trump, at least a bit, seems foolish. The dishonesty of the Deep State was commented on - here - in real time - starting Day One of his presidency. That Trump couldn't, or wouldn't, see the same thing staring him in the face on a daily basis is telling.

We will never get anything better than Trump until we, at the minimum, acknowledge the man's shortcomings. And seeing the Deep State for what it was can definitely be written down as one of Trump's greatest shortcomings.

It is always this way. It's Price's Law in another form. This is also why executives who go out to "trim the fat" on payrolls can easily blow up the business depending on how they do it. Your guys earning a lot probably have a reason they're earning a lot, and it's likely because they're your top guys and produce more than combinations of your cheaper guys. Knock out 10% of your staff to erode payrolls by 15% and you run a strong risk of making the division or business fail.

Those linchpin people - and every organization has them - keep the wheels turning.

287 Yet with transgenderism, the opposite treatment is prescribed. The transgendered person is correct, and he should take drugs and have surgeries to force his body to reflect his perception. The elites and the institutions look at the former *and* the latter with the same attitude of "this is the right thing to do." Because our elites and institutions, while evil, are also deranged and psychotic.

1. IINM, anorexia primarily affects women while transgender affects men.
2. Anorexia isn't sexual. It's not something which can be used to cudgel the masses.
3. Anorexia kills one person. Trans, assuming surgery, prevents an entire line of people.

299 re: the AMA as a "powerful lobbying voice" for American physicians, a couple of observations:

1. AMA's political financial donations (comparing two presidential years) were $3.45M in 1992 and had declined to $1.57M in 2020.

2. Of some 1.3 million physicians in the U.S. (including medical students, and physicians-in-training aka residents). The AMA claims ~250,000 members (roughly 1 in 5). But ~47% (nearly half) of those members are med students and residents. By the time they finish training, most of them drop their membership, and if you count only practicing physicians only 12% of them are AMA members.

AMA recruits heavily in the first year of medical school, offering enticements and the allure of entree into a "special club".This fluffs their membership numbers and adds to the illusion of a great influential organization. Most docs drop membership as they mature in their professional views.

AMA membership and influence have been dropping for years. They are a hollowed out shell of an organization. I'm not surprised they have embraced 'woke' racism.

You can blame JIT (just in time) inventory management for most of this. Everyone, including the military uses it. In essence you only order what you need for a very specific time frame and you do not keep excess stock on hand. IIRC Walmart uses 3 days as their base for JIT.

I was motorcycling home from the TxMoMe, crested a hilltop and saw, for as far as the eye can see, synchronously bright red blinking windmills, scattered throughout Limestone county. I later looked it up and the windmills cover over 54 square miles of contiguous land to benefit Walmart.

It was difficult to find any meaningful articles about it, but there were a few puff pieces put out by Waco area publications. 90% of it was "this is cool", and "we need the [royalty] money" quotes. Expectedly, it was the politicians who were obsessed with royalty income and were gushing over how wonderful this windfall will be.

For starters. It's non negotiable for his followers and not sure he understands the need to level the existing Federal bureaucracy even now--and to install MAGA people in the place of traitors and incompetents. .

And it extends out beyond just inventory, it also extends to suppliers. Businesses don't multi-source nearly as much as they used to. It is inefficient and erodes profits somewhat to buy resilience. Like tn inventories and supply chains, manufacturing and supply resilience is way down.

To understand this, take something easy to understand as an example. Say, car radio antennas. If you're an auto manufacturer and you buy 25% of your car radio antennas from each of four manufacturers, you have some resilience. If one of them folds, you still have the other three and can increase orders while you find a new fourth supplier. But those four suppliers won't charge exactly the same and your average cost for car radio antennas will be a bit higher than if you sourced all of them from the lowest-cost supplier. So you focus on that one. Now what happens if that one raises prices or, in a bad case, fails?

If we can't get anything substantive done under those conditions, then let's stop fooling ourselves. That means we'll NEVER get anything substantive done. Not working with the GOP.

It doesn't help when you capriciously shut down the entire economy, providing Calvin Ball levels of forecasting and guidance and then completely terrorizing the innumerate / ignorant population into thinking that the equivalent of a permanent cloud of VX gas is descending upon them.

You are a trucker, you have abused by every damned grifting, ungrateful, punitive government entity that can figure out a way to claw money and obedience out of you and then shut down the small business owner that supports you. So you are out of a job, and because this was so profoundly mismanaged at every level, you have no idea if/when you can work again, the bills keep on coming in so you find some other area to work.

Now multiply this across the entire supply chain. Then remember JIT forecasting models were totally fucked up by the massive economic disruption that incorporates trend and previous inventory volumes in its projections.

372 I used to work for a CRO that conducted drug trials on animals. It was an unfortunate but necessary step in bringing medicines to the public. However under no circumstances were the animals (monkeys) ever, EVER treated in such a horrific fashion - and indeed such unmentionable treatment is forbidden by law in the US. In fact our animals were treated like royalty, complete with birthday parties and other "fun" type activities you'd not imagine for test subject animals (My favorite was when they hired a party bus driver to drive them all around town while playing 80's new wave music.. they apparently loved that).

We had routine Animal Rights Terrorist training at that place - it was pretty eye-opening stuff.

But for our own government to fund this type of barbarism outside our borders because they know it was illegal to do so here is beyond the pale. There should be laws that keep this kind of nonsense from happening.

380 NOAA is predicting a mild and wet winter. I'm sure they're right. They're from the government.

The Great Texas Ice Age Sampler of last February happened in the midst of a prediction by the National Weather Service that February would be mild and dry. This allowed ERCOT (the entity that criminally mismanaged the Texas grid) to greenlight thermal generators into performing necessary maintenance (can't get around that).

At the same time, I was monitoring the predictions of a well known Climate Change Sceptic who provided evidence of what would eventually prove to be damned near perfectly true, and I followed that advice and had minimal problems when the NWS was proven deadly incorrect.

Everything, though things like trucking will be very visible. My old employer put out a vax mandate last week, and a pernicious one. If you don't comply, you won't be fired - you'll be put on "unpaid leave" which means no unemployment or generally fewer options. My phone has been blowing up with former colleagues venting at me about it. I have seen three responses:
1. I won't do it. They can fire me or put my on leave or whatever. No sale.
2. I have my shots, but fuck these people and their mandate.
3. I don't have my shots and I need this job and I don't know whether to get it or lie about it or get fired over it. I am panicking and worried.

Not one response was about how good it is that the company is doing this. And in my old division, they aggregated the likely losses from the policy across the division and had an emergency meeting this weekend to talk about it because it looks like they're royally fucked if their losses are anything close to what they're estimating.

I get it. I wish that was possible. Phase I trials are basically the "guinea pig trials" on humans. Typically they're small groups of people that are sequestered in a clinical facility and have 24/7 monitoring in place.
But still animal testing is required.

Also mind you that fatalities amongst the test animals were pretty rare. In fact during my 3 year stint at that company - not a single primate died due to investigational products.

421 I used to work for a CRO that conducted drug trials on animals. It was an unfortunate but necessary step in bringing medicines to the public.

I remember growing up in the 70s and watching endless 60 Minutes types of programming about Animal Cruelty with all of the dramatic music and short cuts of animals whining and moaning while another shot shows people sparking up butane blow torches as one of the steps to testing the effectiveness of burn treatment protocols on animals.

They particularly went after the cosmetic industry, but curiously, not against Big Pharma.

426 Note that Fauci's sidekick, Deborah Brix is MIA. Shortly after the initial COVID pandemic porn hit she left to "spend more time with her family" or some such shit. I've got real money that says she knows what's what and has been told to keep her mouth shut and stay away from the media.

Posted by: Martini Farmer at October 25, 2021 07:53 AM

Didn't she "leave to spend more time with family" after she mentioned that the "COVID death" and "COVID case" counts were bogus. i.e. that "COVID deaths" were being counted sometimes without even doing a test on the victim and sometimes when the victim died of other causes, but "tested positive" after the fact.

Sure enough, yep, I remembered correctly: https://bit.ly/3baqGsM

It keeps getting worse. In December of last year, I looked into ordering some couches from an American manufacturer. They had a delivery window of "4-6 months." Two months ago it was up to "5-7 months." I haven't checked since.

I did get stuff from them by calling stores and retailers and buying from stock back in January, with a one-month delivery time. I got the models I wanted but not the colors. I got a slipcover for one and the other I like well enough even though it isn't exactly what I would have ordered otherwise.

And this is a big manufacturer of good stuff.

Posted by: Inisfree at October 25, 2021 08:51 AM (JvFhS)

434 Everything is always fine until it isn't. Our supply chain was and is very brittle. Highly efficient, but non-robust. When you make things in every region and buy things from everywhere in the world - often the same things from different manufacturers - you have robustness but inefficiency. We've been eroding robustness in favor of efficiency for a generation or two. As a result, anything going wrong - like port throughput in California, which serves most of your capacity from Asia which supplies most of your imports - or a labor shortage in one sector, or a regulatory problem in a subordinate industry like trucking, or a change in demand that wasn't planned for, or any number of other things causes things to fracture. We do not have a resilient physical economy.

436 >>Yet with transgenderism, the opposite treatment is prescribed. The transgendered person is correct, and he should take drugs and have surgeries to force his body to reflect his perception. The elites and the institutions look at the former *and* the latter with the same attitude of "this is the right thing to do." Because our elites and institutions, while evil, are also deranged and psychotic.

Thank you! I have been asking a similar question for ages: someone, anyone to identify another condition, physical or mental, in which doctors attempt to worsen and prolong the symptoms and cooperate with whatever bizarre 'cure' the patient - not the doctor - is prescribing.
