BATTLEGROUND VIRGINIA

A couple of battles are going on in Virginia right now: the governor's race between the loathsome Terry MacAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin is pretty tight. Also, a group of parents are showing up at school board meetings in Loudoun County and asking pointed questions about the teaching of toxic critical race theory and also their poor handling of two reports of sexual attacks.

This is very depressing. Because we're not going to win. And if we do win, we'll still lose.

The seeds of our defeat can be seen in the difference between how the Left and Right view politics. The Right wants to do politics and be done with it so they can get on with life, while the Left wants to do politics all the time.

So, ever since WWII, the Right has been basically asleep while the Left's termites have been eating their way into various rooms of the house we both live in, namely the media, academia, entertainment, etc. Occasionally, the left does something noticeable, like chewing their way through a large beam, or perhaps undermining a weight-bearing wall, which causes the house to suddenly shake, or lean to one side, or creak alarmingly, which suggests that collapse is not far off. And only then does the Right wake up. Only then will they engage, form local political action groups, run a candidate, or a slate of candidates, etc.

And then the Right will either win, or lose. If they lose, they will tend to give up. For example, I remember when we lost the Obergefell decision, somebody on our team, I think it was Marco Rubio, said 'Oh well, I guess we lost. We need to just move on now.' And for that, he should have been primaried the next time he was up for re-election. What a gutless coward. The Right does not have the stomach for a sustained fight. I've heard too many stories of conservatives, say, ousting 2 wacko progressive school board members only to have the progressives come out in force in the next election and take back the board seats that they lost.

The Right is questionably good at winning territory, but is unquestioningly bad at holding territory. Thus the Left's victories are always permanent, but the Right's are temporary at best. Every time we win at the SCOTUS level (i.e. Masterpiece Cakeshop), the ruling is decided on such narrow ground that there's little chance it's going to be able to be used as precedent in any other case.

It's very disheartening. Which is why, I think, the Right tends to give up easily, not willing to expend vast amounts of time and resources for goals that turn out to be fruitless.

Which is perhaps why, when state election officials unconstitutionally rewrote election laws for the 2020 election, we mostly just sat there and watched them do it. The Republicans in the various state legislatures should've screamed bloody murder about this, and perhaps some of them did, but not nearly enough.

Now, I admit that there are a couple of exceptions to this.

The first is the large body of firearms rights advocates and their skill at mobilizing They're always up for a fight, probably because every time there's a shooting with lots of media coverage, lots of idiot politicians suddenly get it into their heads that they way to stop criminals from shooting people is to take away firearms from law-abiding Americans. That'll show them. I hear the Left caterwauling about "the powerful gun lobby" and it makes me smile.

The second is the pro-life movement. They've been fighting for the rights of the unborn since the mid 1970s. They will never, ever give up. And I have to commend Roman Catholics for their steadfastness here. They pretty much jump-started the pro-life movement themselves and have always been rock solid on this issue. On the other hand, we Protestants have much to be embarrassed about. If you look at Protestants as a whole, a disappointingly small number of us are actively pro-life, many of us don't believe we should be involved in politics at all, and another large segment is actively fighting on the other side.

In other words, Protestants are very much like the Republican Party.

So, getting back to Virginia, the only glimmer of hope here is that the Left has chosen a very difficult position to defend. That is, that the state, not parents, has the sole authority to determine the content of their children's education. And I should emphasize that these are tax-paying parents. So the Loudoun County School Board's position (echoed by Terry 'Ratweasel' MacAuliffe) is that the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia need to pay up and shut up. That's it. That's their position. Which is pretty much the textbook definition of taxation without representation and didn't we fight a war over this very issue?

I can't think of a better way to get a continuous stream of parents pounding on your office door than to insist, out loud and in public for all to hear, that you have the right to mess with their kids.



Yeah, That Works. Run On That:

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, “Annie’s Stew”, at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com.


Prayer Requests:

9/20 – Ozborn asks for prayers for JC_from_Texas. He’s recently developed Postural Tachycardia (some family history, recent physical stress event). Pray for wisdom in treatment, and that he can rebuild strength and stamina to resume normal activities.

10/4 – Annie’s Stew requests prayers of comfort and support for a sweet young family she knows. We’d prayed for the dad a few months ago, as he was being treated for brain cancer. He just passed away from the WuFlu (in addition to his brain cancer), at age 30. They have a daughter who is only 6 months old.

10/5 – snotnosed nuclear sonic punk asks for prayers for her mother, her father, herself, and her husband. Her 78-year-old mother had an episode of garbled and slurred speech which led to no speech. She broke her left ankle, but didn’t/couldn’t relay the injury. Now she can’t understand why they won’t let her out of the hospital, and she is confused and combative. Her father needs prayers, also, as he is scared and frustrated and showing it as anger. He needs patience for his fears to be quelled. She needs prayers for comfort in the Lord, strength, and clear headedness. Her husband needs prayers for strength and comfort, as he does everything he can to make things easier for all of them.

10/9 – Tonypete asks for prayers for his two granddaughters, especially the 14-year-old. Their mother is a raging alcoholic, and the kids are suffering greatly with the usual things: acting out, eating disorders, troubles in the classroom, fighting at school, way inappropriate behavior and dress and big trouble at home. Prayers also for Mom – that she accepts the help offered and get it together.

10/9 – Prayers for comfort for the family of paisley1333, at the death of her mother. She was battling heart disease, dementia, and Alzheimer’s when she got Covid and passed away.

10/13 – Aelfheld asks for prayers for her former co-worker, KV, who lost her mother on 9/21 and her grandmother a week later, all while her husband was sick with pneumonia. Prayers for her and her sisters in their time of loss and mourning.

10/13 – Sassy has 2 prayer requests. First is a thank you and praise report. She has made it through the gauntlet of breast cancer. (Double mastectomy and rebuild in Feb, Mar-May chemo, June-July radiation, Sept hysterectomy). She is now free to look towards the future, and thanks the horde for their prayers. Second is a prayer for the Repose of the soul of Gilbert, who died of Covid. He leaves a distraught wife and 3 teen sons. They are strong Chinese Catholics, but fear and anxiety are strong. May the Lord give them peace.

10/13 – Grannysaurus Rex requests prayers for her father-in-law who has entered hospice care. He is a much-loved WWII Marine vet, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Please pray for a peaceful passing and for God’s grace as a comfort for the family.
10/21 Update – Her father-in-law has peacefully passed away. Thanks to all for their prayers.

10/17 – Pollywog the ‘Ette passes along a prayer request for Brother Tim, who was admitted to the hospital Sunday for kidney stones and UTI. He needs both full healing, since this isn’t the first time he’s had these problems, and financial blessings. Prayer that he be able to have rest and peace, not something hospitals are known for, would be helpful as well.

10/20 – Dr_No sends an update on his daughter, Megan, who we have prayed for while she was going through Stage III[c] cancer of the sigmoid colon. She has been done with chemo for a while and has received her ‘N.E.D’ diagnosis: ‘No Evidence of Disease’. Her doctors and caregivers were outstanding, and it means everything to see her able to live a normal life again. Yes, there’s always the unspoken fear that she may in future get a diagnosis of cancer’s return, but for now we enjoy that she’s healthy again and no longer in pain. After reading the prayer list, and understanding what others are faced with Do_No says he can only wish for them the joy and relief that he and the rest of the family have at Megan’s successful treatment, and sends his thanks to all for their words up.

10/22 Pookysgirl asks for prayers for Pooky, as he is going in for extensive neuropsychological testing for 4-8 hours on Oct 27, so he could really use prayers today. He’s had issues with similar testing in the past, so prayers for calming and peace would be appreciated.


For Healing:

10/5 – redc1c4 sends in a prayer request for his wife’s co-worker, whose son James (her only son) had a bad spill riding motocross. He was air evaced to Loma Linda, about 120 miles away, where he is currently in the pediatric ICU. It’s so far, so good, but a long row to hoe from here. Prayers for swift and complete healing of his injuries for James, wisdom and insight for his caregivers at Loma Linda Hospital, and strength, faith, and courage for his mother Deborah would be appreciated.
10/19 Update – James is going to be transferred to rehab soon. His mother sends her thanks to the Horde for their prayers on her son’s behalf.

10/6 – Java Joe’s 19-year-old grandson was injured in an accident at college. He suffered a serious concussion, facial lacerations, a bi-lateral fracture of his jaw and 10 broken teeth. He is currently at the U of M hospital, scheduled for surgery. We are requesting prayer for recovery and no long-term effects.

10/7 – Pete in Texas asks for prayers for his mother, age 89, who got the J&J Covid shot. Her health rapidly deteriorated over the next week until she had a heart attack. For the next month she was unconscious. She is still in the hospital (where he will see her shortly) and she is still in a bed and can’t speak. Last week, his sister’s family got Covid. His brother-in-law went to the hospital on 10/6, so prayers are requested for him. The rest of the family are almost fully recovered.
10/14 Update – Mom got the Pfizer jab. Mom is stable enough that the case worker is talking about bringing her home. That is good news, and Pete in Texas loves her, but he realizes that is going to be a challenge. Also his brother-in-law is still hospitalized with pneumonia, but he made a remarkable recovery over Covid-19 after one of his old Army buddies visited him last week.

10/20 – Nancy at 7000 ft is asking for prayers for her friend Timothy, who just had a quadruple bypass yesterday. Tim owns and runs a small business repairing industrial machines, and has recently purchased an old church with his wife Gabrielle, and was in the process of moving when he experienced a minor heart attack. Further investigation revealed he had an aneurismic section of his aorta, a genetic condition, and required multiple bypasses. Pray for an easing of his post-surgical pain and a full recovery.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com.

Romans 8:26-27:
[26] In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. [27] And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her.

Monday Who Dis: Looking for photos of 'B' movie actress Susan Hart, I discovered that there is (or was) a porn actress using the same name. Oops. She doesn't have a real extensive CV, but she married a producer and helped raise money in his name to create the pediatric heart wing at UCLA Medical Center. She has also sung professionally, released a few singles, and performed as a figure skater. Earlier, she was in one of the first of the "beach" movie genre, Ride the Wild Surf with the hunky Tab Hunter. They also did the fantasy/horror movie City in the Sea (AKA War Gods of the Deep).

***
I reread the novel recently, and Forsyth goes into detail on the rifle, how the Jackal specifies how it's to be constructed, etc. Though we do not know until the climactic part why he insists on the parts being as they are, and how he plans to get it past the cops to shoot de Gaulle. Maybe that's in the film too.

I have a friend in england who had the delta and spent time in the hospital recently. had the vaccines, not sure which one, but now he's got followon issues and says the surgeries there are overcrowded, and his doc said it's possible he's had a tia stroke while in the hospital, and the reason the ER is packed is because of so many clot issues.

and the lovely NHS told him he needed to wait 11 hours in ER before they could consider getting to him, and that he actually needed to wait nearly 24 hours for them to decide to get him a scan to see how he's doing.

the NHS at work. killing the people the kung flu won't...

The amazing thing, well, 2 things, is that Forsyth keeps our interest even though we know de Gaulle was not assassinated; and the lead character, the Jackal himself, is the villain and is more fascinating than the French cop Lebel. You almost wind up rooting for him.

The same 2 points apply to Die Nadel, the expert German spy, in Eye of the Needle.

Maybe that's in the film too.

"We were bamboozled by Dread Fauci, the evil racist who did Nazilike human experiments on Black and Brown Children and who tortured dogs to death but worst of all (new outrage to be supplied here as the climax, perhaps Fauci as Father of COVID-19).

We now know why the Evil Moron Racist Trump picked Fauci to head his taskforce. Because Racist Fauci had tortured minority children to their death and Trump lo-o-oved that. He wanted another Tuskegee!!!1111!!!

83 "look at Protestants as a whole, a disappointingly small number of us are actively pro-life"

But sorta the point of Protestants is that they decentralize. I like that more local autonomy for the same reason I like decentralized government. imo once they start preaching gay marriage is fine, (or abortion) ... at some point they need to remove the Christian label and come up with some new socialized name. ... (separating wheat from chaff, so to speak)

But for those that cling to their Bible studies and keep JC as head of the church, more local autonomy, with the parallel local responsibility ... is potentially better. (new wine and old wineskins kind of thing).

BUT as far as national political action goes, it is helpful to have a coordinated effort, even though the family unit is the next in "command" under Christ Jesus as head. Denominations should no more be decision makers for families than Schools Boards (or FBI) should be above the parent.

I was kidding around with Mannix in the last thread about Kafka, but I had a thought... Nobody in Hollywood is motivated to do one of their innumerable remakes and film adaptations that would actually be interesting and connect with audiences, instead of pissing them off.

But if they were, they'd make modernized (but faithful) adaptations of The Castle and The Trial. Anyone living in modern America would immediately understand those stories, and would probably love those movies.

I recently went to the grocery store the day after a news "scare" about a new variant. Store full of nice middle class people, in masks. That's the bad side of orderly, clean, nice middle class people. Lovely neighbors but not activists at all.

Stephen King's 11/22/63 does the first point, and very well. But his story is not about Oswald; it doesn't follow the villain or assassin. The narrator hero is a young-ish schoolteacher from Maine, rather like the young King himself . . . and that's all to the good.

According to an old Steve Martin standup routine, the following terms are not acceptable regarding womens' breasts:

* boobs
* jugs
* Winnebagos
* Golden Bozos

In fact, they may *only* be referred to as, "hooters."

Posted by: kallisto at October 27, 2021 10:02 AM

I remember reading, I think in the Spartacus letter, that the vaccines only account for one part of the virus/disease (the Spike - or S - protein) and not any other parts of the virus/disease. So that when the virus/disease mutated, the "vaccines" would no longer be able to protect from the variants.

But, anyone who was infected and recovered from SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, their body would develop antibodies to all parts of the virus/disease, which would then give them long-term natural immunity to all future variants.

Considering this is likely well known in the virus/disease community, only logical conclusion I come to is that they want everyone "vaccinated", so they can mandate "vaccination" indefinitely. Because there will always be a new variant (just like there are always new variants of influenza). And unless you have natural immunity from infection/recovery, you'll always need a new "vaccine".

143 We're seeing the early stages of the usual Democrat's Version of the Old Switcheroo, where they blame Republicans for their stupidity and trouble generated thereby.

I said this yesterday, but it bears repeating - the Deep State knows that bad reactions to the shot have happened and within a few months, at best, are going to be so numerous and widespread that the MFM will not be able to brush it away.

Fauci is being knifed now so that, when the bad effects occur and people are looking for someone to murder, the Dems will point to Fauci and say, "hey, not our fault - he was Trump's guy! Trump's Operation Warp Speed! Trump should have fired him! It's Trump's fault you're sick and dying, not ours!" And Trump has already fallen into the trap, with his obsessive bragging about the shot and how quickly he got it to market.

"But MP4, people aren't that stupid!" I hear you say. "It's the Dems who have been pushing the shot for over a year! Nobody will blame Trump for Fauci!"

Wanna bet? Really wanna bet? Hear me now and believe me later.

The left's argument against a stolen election 2020 was "well why didn't they steal all those house seats the GOP won if they were stealing?". And the answer is.... because it's easy to stuff ballots in a few urban areas for Dems to win GA by 10K votes. It's a lot harder to stuff ballots in 435 congressional races all over the country.

That's why they can steal statewide races, but it's really hard to steal legislative seats.

207 Fauci is being knifed now so that, when the bad effects occur and people are looking for someone to murder, the Dems will point to Fauci and say, "hey, not our fault - he was Trump's guy! Trump's Operation Warp Speed! Trump should have fired him! It's Trump's fault you're sick and dying, not ours!" And Trump has already fallen into the trap, with his obsessive bragging about the shot and how quickly he got it to market.

Posted by: Mary Poppins' Practically Perfect Piercing at October 27, 2021 10:40 AM

Sadly, they are not wrong. Trump is to blame for not only pushing the "vaccines", but pushing them through only companies which have a long track record of corruption and failure. He did this despite apparently knowing the success of HCQ. Like Bush 43 did not fight back against the media lies about OEF and OIF, Trump did not fight back against the media lies about HCQ ("fish cleaner").

And as far as I know, he has not told people to focus more on prevention and treatment through HCQ, Ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies rather than "vaccines" that do not provide immunity. It's one thing to be wrong last year, but quite another to *still* push "vaccines" now.

"It is our fate to be living in epic times; yet where the epic scale of evil is submerged beneath dreary lies and shallow incomprehension.

We all inhabit an evil global empire that demonstrates its evil on a daily basis; even going so far as to declare its intention to eliminate most of the people of the world. Its morality, aesthetic and idea of truth is inverted from that of common sense and all traditional religion.

There have never been so many or bigger public lies than in the recent past - and never have these lies been so uniformly endorsed and enforced by those with power, status, influence or fame."

267 Time to see the deep, contemplative analysis of the left in action (i.e. how can we make any topic of discussion about racist whites)

Ilhan Omar tweets: "our office received a package with a suspicious substance and a threat reading "The Patriarchy will rise again. Merry f***ing Christmas.""

Person A: Sounds kkkinda racist.
Fighting imaginary threats, while ignoring the real ones.
Person B: Racist? I don't see anything racist
Sexist more likely.
Person C: They managed to do both.
Merry fucking Christmas to a Muslim.
Person D with the intersectional trump card: Implicit in patriarchy is white patriarchy in this case.

All for an event that, let's be honest, is probably a hoax the left is doing to itself to generate support.

I don't think for a second that they blurred the faces to protect the youngsters. They did it because leaving them unblurred would make it too obvious that these are adult women. They're letting you imagine them as children, but if that was the goal, they should've cropped the picture so that you couldn't see their chests. But then, of course, you wouldn't see the demon alcohol with which he's clearly trying to ply them.

280 I think part of it is most conservatives have some sort of religious orientation and have rules on how we conduct ourselves and also view this life as temporary.

We also usually have family and something to lose.

Liberals seem to believe in nothing but politics, that is their religion. They simply fight way harder than we do and feel more is on the line.

Our side though is lazy and stingy (and I group myself in this group). How many here donate to political causes? Or donate their time?

I don't claim to know what the answer is, but ignoring the problem doesn't make it go away. Critical Theory isn't new, they just went balls to the wall with it officially in recent years. It has been the de facto instruction in academia for decades if you knew what you were looking at.

309 Second, the WEF has been a leading proponent of digital biometric identity systems, arguing that they will make societies and industries more efficient, more productive and more secure. In July 2019, the WEF started a project to "shape the future of travel with biometric-enabled digital traveler identity management". In addition, the WEF collaborates with the ID2020 alliance, which is funded by the Gates and Rockefeller foundations and runs a program to "provide digital ID with vaccines". In particular, ID2020 sees the vaccination of children as "an entry point for digital identity."

Third, WEF founder Klaus Schwab is the author of the book COVID-19: The Great Reset, published in July 2020, which argues that the coronavirus pandemic can and should be used for an "economic, societal, geopolitical, environmental and technological reset", including, in particular, advancing global governance, accelerating digital transformation, and tackling climate change.

329 "The right" keeps giving up after political defeats because "the right" doesn't include most of "their" politicians.

The GOP is full of quislings whose job is to pretend to put up a fight and then lose - usually using the loss as a fundraising platform. They're not cowards, they're just on the other side.

And the actual right's actual problem is no longer that they want to go back to everyday life instead of politics. It's now that they keep trying to live everyday life instead of burning everything the fuck down and making tableware out of the skulls of their enemies.

It is time. It has been time. All that is wanting is the specific spark.

The article mentions the rare side-effect of the injections where people's blood repeatedly rarely clots up as it is a rare thing that only very rarely keeps happening re-rarely. The article then goes on to tell us how rare this rare event is that keeps happening over and over again so very rarely. It is very careful to remind you throughout how rare it is by mentioning it's rarity throughout the article every sentence or so. The word "rare"? It's occurrence is not so rare in that article.

333 " vaccines only account for one part of the virus/disease (the Spike - or S - protein) and not any other parts of the virus/disease. So that when the virus/disease mutated, the "vaccines" would no longer be able to protect from the variants."

I don't understand the whole thang ... BUT, yeah, the point is the variants are adapting to that one type of resistance (assuming the different vaccines are somewhat the same?) ... Natural Immunity may not be complete, but it is broader, and (I assume) every person develops immunity in their own way.

So the variants might adapt to one person's natural immunity, but that would not run like a wildfire through those with somewhat different natural immunities. (that is my current theory at least) But with the vaccine, the virus is given the environment to adapt to just that one spike protein, and then all the vaccinated are vulnerable.

Some real science guys think that could allow a much more serious pandemic than the original ... "extinction event" is probably overwrought, but some say even that.

338 I think the year was 1971. DeSantis was 21, the girls were 17. They're grasping at straws.

These are the same people who support Epstein Island, sex trafficking of young girls and women, pushing explicit sex education in schools, etc.

They have zero problem with DeSantis doing this. They're employing Rules for Radicals Rule 4: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." The problem is that maybe this was a rule for conservatives in 1950s, but in 2020s, I doubt anyone takes issue with this. They're trying to make this DeSantis' "grab them by the p-ssy" moment.

348 It's very disheartening. Which is why, I think, the Right tends to give up easily, not willing to expend vast amounts of time and resources for goals that turn out to be fruitless.

Are we talking "The Right" - or are we talking "Conservatism" ? Because "The Right" never gives up either. They never stop supporting the next Government Solution - via some politician that's going to fix everything. They never stop "backing the blue" - even when the blue arrests them for not staying six feet apart in church. They see #VoteHarder as a virtue.

The Right would rather die that stop beating their heads against a brick wall, insisting that the same thing will deliver a different result, all while everything around them burns. Call "The Right" anything you want - I certainly don't like them - but don't call them quitters.

So of course healthy people should expose themselves to being crippled, having a stroke, going blind, becoming sterile, dying, etc, just so they can maybe avoid -- for a couple of months -- a virus that has almost no chance of killing them. Totes makes sense! It's science!!!

I don't think he's gutless; he's just on the other side. And so are a majority of "conservatives." Cultural conservatives - a minority, and a much smaller one that most seem to imagine - got sold out by their own side. The number of conservatives who are going to publicly disapprove of anything gay-related is small, and was small well before cancel culture got rolling. Ask Rick Santorum. Nor can most conservatives seem to connect the dots between the gay stuff and things they are willing to carp about, like trans nonsense, even though it's right there in the acronym: LGBTQ. For all their mockery of the left's denial of reality, a majority on the right also think they can only be half-pregnant. Good luck with "live and let live" and all that.

379 But with the vaccine, the virus is given the environment to adapt to just that one spike protein, and then all the vaccinated are vulnerable. Some real science guys think that could allow a much more serious pandemic than the original ... "extinction event" is probably overwrought, but some say even that.

Posted by: illiniwek at October 27, 2021 11:08 AM

Yep. And I have read that while the "vaccines" may provide temporary "protection" specifically against SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, they also weaken the "vaccinated" person's immune system in general. So while the result of the shot may be short-term "protection" against SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, long term they will be more vulnerable to every other possible illness due to weakened immune system.

All this shit reminds me of the storyline in the movie "Serenity". People think that that kind of evil only exists in science fiction books and films. We're living through that very evil shit right now. And they're getting away with it, because the majority of people can't even fathom that people could be that evil in real life. What's the saying?

Let me see:

A republic, if you can keep it.
- Benjamin Franklin

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which G-d hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.

418 Viruses replicate in very high numbers, power of 10 numbers. They rely on host cells to provide the replication machinery, they can't replicate on their own. So mutations are produced in all parts of the the RNA (or DNA, depending on the virus type). Think a million monkeys on a million typewriters. Most of these mutations would cause loss of replication or some other loss-of-function, and not survive. The ones that do survive will code for different amino acids than the original virus, and have a different conformation (3-D shape). Antibodies to the original viral protein will not bind to the same location if there is an amino acid or conformational change in that region.

Posted by: bonhomme at October 27, 2021 11:16 AM (YYlyE)


Modern electronics - as we all see them now - contain something that has never been seen in recorded history. The ability to not only contain knowledge - like a book - but also apply it, such as a CNC mill, far beyond the scope of mechanical devices like the loom, printing press, or cotton gin. That's the difference. I should know - automation is my field.

If we regress back - and I think we will - there will be upsides and downsides. One upside ? A single programmer won't be able to "automate" tasks anymore. We'll be back to individuals pushing buttons in a manufacturing plant ... thinking, in other words. Back to machinists operating mills and lathes.

That arrangement won't be the most efficient. But it will be, in the macro sense, more resilient. More diversified.

449 Sadly, they are not wrong. Trump is to blame for not only pushing the "vaccines", but pushing them through only companies which have a long track record of corruption and failure. He did this despite apparently knowing the success of HCQ. Like Bush 43 did not fight back against the media lies about OEF and OIF, Trump did not fight back against the media lies about HCQ
And as far as I know, he has not told people to focus more on prevention and treatment through HCQ, Ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies rather than "vaccines" that do not provide immunity. It's one thing to be wrong last year, but quite another to *still* push "vaccines" now.

Vaers says 17K death, 80K hospitalizations.

Here's where things get interesting - not all vaers reports are ultimately due to the clot shot - just like the death number for COVID is the people *with* COVID that have died not people who COVID killed. Based on 50% of "COVID hospitalizations" being people whe had a positive PCR test after being hospitalized, I think we get to a ceiling on actual covid deaths of 350K.

But, there is a bunch of pre-covid research showing that only something like 2% of adverse reactions get reported. So there could be up to 850k deaths from the clot shot...though that also is a ceiling.

So it is possible that the clot shot has killed more people, whose death certificate would say stroke or heart attack, then COVID has...though i think it is unlikely.
