The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Ah yes...the Biden junta's well-documented hatred of most Americans is nowhere more obvious than on the southern border, where every criminal crossing our undefended border is treated like royalty, while regular Americans are considered only according to their value as pawns and votes.

Wait...let me rephrase that. Every person crossing our border illegally is a criminal. There is nothing complicated about that idea, and the only complexity occurs when our government allows this criminality, and in fact rewards it!

This is particularly egregious, and another significant miscalculation on the part of the amazingly stupid and tone-deaf Kalorama Klowns who are running the show. Most Americans are blissfully ignorant of the workings of our government, and perhaps that is purposeful. But go after their kids and all of a sudden people start paying attention, as the good people of Virginia demonstrated recently with the transgender insanity being shoved down their kids' throats by the leftists in charge of their schools.

Not paying attention to shortages of baby formula is spectacularly stupid. Prioritizing law-breakers on our southern border is just so much worse!

Illegal migrants first to get 'pallets' of hard-to-find baby formula

The nationwide shortage of baby formula that has sent mothers desperately rushing from store to store has evaded one lucky group: illegal immigrants detained by Border Patrol.

According to videos posted by a Florida lawmaker, the Biden administration has been shipping “pallets” of baby formula to migrant holding facilities.

“They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border,” said Republican Rep. Kat Cammack in one of two online postings yesterday. “Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula,” she added, holding a photo of empty shelves where the formula would be.

Rep. Stefanik blasts Biden admin over baby formula shortages: 'We have seen no plan'

Napoleon supposedly said, "Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." Is this going to be America's salvation? The viciousness, cruelty and mendacity of the current administration is matched only by their amazing incompetence and insularity. The parade of idiots and partisan fools parading through confirmation hearings in the Capitol building would normally terrify anyone with two neurons to rub together, but the sheer weight of ignorance and mismanagement might be our saving grace.

The Republican party must keep hammering this home. Every misstep...every obviously flawed decision...every half-baked plan should be part of a unified message that the Democrat party is out of step, lousy at governing, and doesn't care about the typical American.

Yeah...don't hold your breath. They'll screw it up. Just read any "conservative" NeverTrumper for the talking points that defend the indefensible.

President Biden marked the loss of 1 million Americans to the COVID-19 pandemic Thursday.

Biden released a written statement Thursday morning and is expected to issue a presidential proclamation ordering flags to half-staff later in the day. The milestone comes the same day that Biden is scheduled to lead the 2nd global COVID-19 summit.

Anyway, the more time goes on, the less I'm convinced that political messaging from political parties actually matters all that much. Is America blind to the fact that things have gotten so much worse under Biden? Does it really need commercials on TV and press conferences no one watches from the GOP telling them that?

41 Aside from better treatment of alien invaders than our own citizens with the baby formula; how many of those moms are going to even trust baby formula vs just nursing their babies? I'd bet that a bunch of the baby formula shipped to migrant holding facilities just sits until it is expired or they just use it for cooking in lieu of milk.

The baby formula issue (and the child grooming issue) strike DIRECTLY at voters as an emotional issue. It's targeting children and using them as a weapon in the cultural war.

As a practical matter, the upcoming diesel shortage is more important, but it doesn't resonate with people like starving babies or abused children does.

We have a system that is, in general, extremely efficient but non-robust. That necessarily goes hand-in-hand. Redundancy is expensive and inefficient, so maximally-efficient systems will have lots of single points of failure as only one or two large, efficient outfits (or countries, or shippers, etc.) acts as the source of whatever "X" is. Like when a single huge baby formula factory goes offline and then we have a shortage, likely due to other problems in the supply chain.

That system was brilliant when it worked. Things moved fast and cheaply all over the world. It's lack of robustness has always been a risk. The likely risk was war, but we got the unlikely risk: COVID response. That put too many fractures into the structure. It may well fall apart, which has already started. If it isn't arrested, nobody knows what is going to happen.

2. Those commercials need to bigly do the 2+2 math, and clearly show Cause & Effect. Less Crude Oil + Less Fuel = Higher Prices. Higher Fuel Prices = Increased cost of Baby Formula and etc.

And yes. Low Information America really IS that lacking in Vitamin Clue, and so needs the informational nutrition.

They don't have it. They borrow it, usually from the coyotes themselves (a form of vendor financing), but the note is held by the cartel with which the coyote is affiliated. The coyote gets the illegal alien debtor over the border, and the cartel holds the alien's family hostage to ensure repayment. The alien then works here illegally and sends money "back home to his family." His family keeps a piece and makes the payment to the cartel goon who comes by to reduce the debt. If the alien doesn't pay, the cartel goon will kill his family members until he does.

It is, with the best possible definition of it, an illegal and coercive indenture. In reality, it is closer to a slave trade. A slave trade in which the United States Government and the massive NGO complex are active partners and who make the entire scheme possible.

Richard Fernandez ("Wretchard") over at his Belmont Club blog used to talk about the "design margin" of societies. America has had--until now--relatively large design margins compared to the rest of the world. When something broke, it didn't cause a catastrophe and we could absorb the shock with little disruption.

That time is now over. Our design margins are razor thin and stretching at the boundaries. SOMETHING BIG will happen, but no one can predict it or respond until it does.

Subsidiarity for the win. It isn't the most efficient system in the world, but it limits the cross-section of damage from accidents or malice by a huge amount and makes for an extremely robust system.

If one man makes a bad decision, the damage is limited to himself and his family. If a mayor makes a bad decision, the damage is limited to his city. If a governor makes a bad decision, the damage is limited to his state. If the president makes a bad decision, the damage is nationwide. If the cabal of globalists makes a bad decision, there is no limit to the cross-section of damage.

The original vaccine and the booster are the same thing. The more you get the shot, the shorter the time of your temporary pseudo protection. First shot, at about 6 mos you are break even.

The unvaccinated are getting it also, but at a significantly lower rate (at least per the data released by NHS in Great Britain, and the Walgreens data base for US).

200 >>> The Republican party must keep hammering

This should happen but won't as you've noted. I think this is one of the things that give people an impending sense of doom. The firm knowledge that something should happen but doesn't is indicative that there is a great hidden structure behind it all that is guiding things and draging us towards the unknown.

And it's not just us but everyday leftists see this too and think, "we should have lost long ago, the tide should have turned, all our mishaps and scandals should have buried us, yet here we are defended by mighty fortuna unseen, we are unstoppable and the others are detritus to be marched over and forgotten".

Yes the propaganda media fuels this and creates much of the facade on which the illusions of a working society are cast. But there is more substance behind the lies. Something terrible but tangible is guiding the actions of Rs and Ds alike in a way that is completely disconnected from what we can sense and interrogate with reason. The youngins are calling this The Cathedral or more specifically in politics The Regime. Whatever you call it, I think it's the big reason for this age's sense of futility and nihilism.

So now a normal supply of baby formula won't be enough, everyone that needs it will buy everything on the shelves (unless they put limits, but then they'll have friends buy it for them).

One former military prepper guy says a major egg suppliers doesn't have orders, (WalMart their biggest customer) and their eggs (semi-loads) are going to cold storage. And yet there are allegedly low stocks of eggs at WalMart? ... so maybe it is all planned ... but need more data to know if BigGov really wants us weak/emaciated.

I didn't say anything about the efficacy of the first vaccine other than the obvious...that it conferred mild resistance to Covid.

The boosters are different because they are acting on immune systems that have already been exposed to the antigen.

And the even more obvious point...that the genome of Covid19 has drifted -- as all viruses drift -- and it is no longer the same thing that the vaccine was designed for.

That's probably another big reason why the booster sucks.

My wife and kid are going on a trip this weekend. They paid $250 a night for a Hampton Inn. I’m like WTF? But that’s the going rate, meaning demand is high to allow the room rates. And I don’t see any fewer people on the highway with $5 gas vs $3 gas. I’m still driving 30 mph on the interstate at 5 on a Friday.

We are living in a schizo world out there.

344 The boosters are different because they are acting on immune systems that have already been exposed to the antigen.

And the even more obvious point...that the genome of Covid19 has drifted -- as all viruses drift -- and it is no longer the same thing that the vaccine was designed for.

That's probably another big reason why the booster sucks.

The boosters are the same substance, ostensibly aimed at the same effect as the original (which didn't work in the sense any layman using the term 'vaccine' would have meant). So they're reinforcing the training of the first shot, which to the extent it accomplished anything was very specific to the original covid strain that came out of the lab.

The bigger problem is worse than 'drift'. Half the population of the planet has this specific (anti-spike protein of original strain) immune response at some stage of programming/drop off and when they get covid, it replicates under natural selection pressures that favor replication in that environment.

So, getting boosted is making you more likely to produce the response that current and future strains of covid thrive in.

423 @SenSchumer: "Elect more pro-choice Democrats if you want to protect a woman's freedom and right to choose. Elect more MAGA Republicans if you want to see a nationwide ban on abortion; if you want to see doctors and women arrested."

Question: Weren't there "abortion restriction" laws that said only real doctors could perform abortions, and Democrats screeched that those restrictions would make it unacceptable for people to have safe, effective abortions?

How many abortions are performed by actual doctors compared to rank amateurs?

The GOP is playing this *exactly* right.

Short of a unique figure like Trump, neither Party can attract a single voter from the other. The bases will *always* vote correctly, and the electoral game is just about turnout from the mushy middle, and nothing else (besides fraud, of course).

In a midterm election with a truly terrible Dem President in the WH and a truly terrible Dem caucus controlling both houses narrowly, all they have to do is sit back, and let the win happen.

Why waste effort campaigning? Why attack you masters in the Dem party, and engender their ill-will? Why make promises you have no intention of ever even attempting to look like you're keeping, and engender the ill-will of your voters when you don't follow through on any of them?

Also, OT from formula and stuff is the sterilization of bottles when a kid is a toddler but still a bottle baby. Look at that bottle after the first 10 minutes. The kid is developing immunity to everything.

The logic of capitalism’s deeply naturalized repro-social order is one of anti-life natalism. Its method is pithily encapsulated by Evi Nakano Glenn: forced care. Forced gestating is best understood as the most physiologically invasive stratum of people’s coercion into care.

You hear that? "natalism" - that is, pregnancy and giving birth - is an anti-life mechanism imposed by capitalism and, like everything else in capitalism, is evidence of coercion.

People aren't starving and there isn't meaningful external pressure. I think we've got a few years.

This baby formula shortage may be the tipping point.

492 I don't think "The Witch" needed a sequel. But money talks I guess. It was a hit.

The poor girl was just liberating herself and was just helping her mother with her reproductive rights.

Also the scene were the "witch" seduced that boy? HOT STUFF!

Actually its the National Guard equivalent - its fine, I think it shows 7.5 years in the Army NG. She might have another couple of years in ROTC before going into the guard.

Not sure what all the stick is about - she wasn't active duty Army, but her resume says Reserves anyway.

494 I do believe the vax does cause the transmission of Covid more easily whereas you believe it does offer some protection from transmission.

Posted by: Anti doesn't matter at May 12, 2022 11:51 AM (eCqFY)

That's a huge question. Suppression of symptoms might not decrease transmission because the virus is still being produced by the cells, it just isn't causing much disease in the host.

I think the original vaccine (not the boosters) probably decreases transmission. I think the boosters just extend some mild effect for a short time. But what is weird is that the Israeli data show that eventually it wears off and makes the recipients of the fourth booster (I think) MORE susceptible!

Yes thanks for the correction. They are still pushing for the DD214 which would show her service in the reg Army which may have happened after her discharge from the NG.

498 CBD if you are waiting in difinative numbers on the effectiveness of "the vaccine" you will be waiting still in eternity. There will NEVER be difinative numbers.

it isn't weird at all. It is predictable and expected. This is way the rule has always been you do not vaccinate in the middle of a pandemic. It too late and the mutational pressures are increased and causes leakage. And you are actually more likely to get it probably after the first one also, just have longer protection time. Remember pharma's wet dream plan is that you will require endless injections with increasing frequency forever.

That said you are aren't too far off the mark for a layperson.

500 The country died in 2012 when the worst president of all time was re-elected.

2010 when everyone realized that. Was the time to have formed a new party. 6 years later Trump would have had members in congress that would work with him. Instead of looking to stab him in the back.

501 The problem is not winning the next cycle; it's winning the next 10. Biden undid much of what Trump did in a year.

Sure, 2022 will be a wipeout, but if you want to see things really change and permanently, there need to be gains in 2022, 24, 26, 28 and so on, so we don't backslide.

I mean, who would ever have thought we would self-inflict the Carter years on ourselves again, but here we are.
