The Morning Report - 5/13/22

eatkatport.jpg

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and no, triskaidekaphobia is not the fear of a 13-sided cracker. I still find it hard to get over yesterday's discourse in which, like most of you, were just dumbfounded at the fact that the nation that since the end of the Second World War, a war which saw our farms and factories outproduce every other major combatant combined, now faces an actual shortage of baby formula. I almost half expect the Ethiopian equivalent of Quincy Jones and Bob Geldof to round up his nation's musical superstars and produce a reverse "We Are the World" and Live Aid concert, or Live AIDS considering the continent. Meh, we've given an ungrateful world our blood, treasure and charity and in return we get shit on. But I digress.

Or maybe not. Everything the Left has done - every policy, law and program it has ever instituted - has failed and failed spectacularly. Of course, as the saying goes, "this is what's known as 'bad luck.'" Or is it?

You don’t think Joe Biden would put Americans at the head of the baby formula line, do you? Democrats hate Americans, especially the babies they didn’t get a chance to abort.

Hoping to change the country’s demographics (a stated goal of Democrats and the media), Biden is flooding the country with illegal immigrants, a record number of them, even as he spends $40 billion to protect Ukraine’s border. But now, according to this congresswoman, people who have no business being in our country are receiving the baby formula countless American mothers can’t find for their own babies.

On a social media post, [FL GOP Rep. Kat] Cammack said she received photographic evidence of the border deliveries from a border patrol agent.

Illegal immigrants are  “receiving pallets and more pallets of baby formula at the border,” she said. “This [photo of baby formula] was taken at Ursula processing facility [in Texas], where thousands are being housed and processed and then released into the United States.”

The photo, she says, is the full shelves of baby formula shipped to the border for illegal aliens — you know, the people breaking into our country at the invitation of the Biden [junta]. . .

. . . maybe Democrats think that with Roe v. Wade about to be overturned, they can still kill babies this way -- American babies who might grow up and not vote “correctly.”

Think this is just something new, or a one-off? Think again.

Months after distressed moms have been vocally upset and concerned about the baby formula shortage, the media is finally starting to ask, how could this happen? The short answer is lockdown supply chains and the shutdown of one of the country’s largest formula plants in Michigan over an alleged bacterial outbreak.

The long answer is that, unlike the problem of sky-rocketing lumber prices or your West Elm furniture stuck on cargo ships, this crisis is intertwined with an already highly regulated industry and a bureaucratic agency that has been the enemy of postpartum moms well before the pandemic.

As the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is quick to point out, they do not “approve” infant formula, but they do require manufacturers to meet certain requirements to be considered “FDA-registered.” The nutrition and quality control requirements for formulas are implemented by statute, the Infant Formula Act of 1980, and it’s the FDA’s job to enforce those federal law requirements, including the verification of imported European formulas that don’t meet their often-debated standards.

This is an important distinction because it’s also the smokescreen the FDA will likely hide behind as they are pressed to loosen restrictions on importing formulas amidst the ongoing crisis of mothers staring down empty shelves in the supermarket. When angry moms ask why their European formula orders were seized by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, experts and FDA defenders point to the federal statute as a “their hands are tied” excuse. . .

. . . In some ways, the FDA seems more concerned about labeling than the nutrients themselves. In an FDA “Import Alert,” which is cited by Customs and Border Patrol agents when seizing or destroying imports, every product listed as “subject to detention” is dinged for “labeling that is false or misleading” or being “not labeled as required.” None of the products listed are noted as having insufficient iron levels.

After watching the FDA authorize vaccines for “emergency use” for two years, many American moms and dads are wondering when feeding their babies will be considered an “emergency”?

Update: When reached for comment, an FDA spokeswoman referred to a recent press release addressing the shortage that included their plan to expedite “the necessary certificates to allow for flexibility in the movement of already permitted products from abroad into the U.S.”

Blood boiling yet? This is just yet one more example of how utterly useless not just the FDA is but the entire unelected, unaccountable, 99 44/100th percent (im)pure Leftist and now feral governmental bureaucracy is. Worse than useless; dangerous. It is an axiomatic law of nature that the prime objective of any bureaucracy is to self-perpetuate and grow in size, reach and influence. Were they to solve the actual problems they were created to address, they'd be committing suicide. You follow?

In describing Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi architect of, and leading bureaucratic organizer of the deaths of millions of Jews, political philosopher, author, and Shoah survivor Hannah Arendt coined a now famous phrase "the banality of evil." I have to disagree with that assessment. Evil is not banal. But it sure as hell is ugly. Yesterday's example was blithering moron and Jew-hater Nina Turner. Today, it's sick, malthusian dipshit Katie "porker" Porter.

When asked by MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell to compare how inflation and abortion shape the midterm elections, Porter said, "I don't think they compare, I think they actually reinforce each other."

"The fact that things like inflation can happen, and it becomes more expensive to feed your kids and to fuel your car is exactly why people need to be in charge of how many mouths they're going to have to feed," Porter said. "The fact that we're seeing this jump in expenses, that we're seeing people having to pay more in the grocery store, pay more at the pump, pay more for housing, is a reason that people are saying, ‘I need to be able to make my own decisions about when and if to start a family.'"

Well, Katie, how about mom and dad shoot one or two kids at the breakfast table and this way they'll have plenty to eat at dinner? Better yet, why not round up everyone who questions "climate change," the legitimacy of the 2020 election, the notion of more than two genders, or that America as founded is both illegitimate and irredeemably racist and shoot all of them? Voila! No more food shortages AND a permanent majority for your party. Winning.

If you think that I'm over the top, you have not paid attention to the warnings of folks like Hannah Arendt, especially in context to the words and deeds of Leftists in and out of American government since at least 2008 if not long before. Most especially in the past several months where truly innocent Americans still languish as political prisoners after being taken hostage by an FBI entrapment sting, where parents have been targeted as potential terrorists for merely speaking up at school board meetings and now, where an honest-to-goodness Ministry of Truth is being enacted to censor and even punish political speech running counter to the official narrative out of Kalorama, and bands of political thugs are being used to intimidate by threats of physical violence against even Supreme Court justices. And those are just for starters on the overthrown-America checklist.

Yes, gentle reader. Elections have consequences, but stolen elections are something else entirely.

Everybody to the right of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez knows that the root cause of the crisis facing America — the most serious since the Civil War — is lawlessness. And everybody not under the spell of the Democrat spin machine understands that the lawlessness begins at the top, with government and the many agencies of the executive branch who are tasked by our Constitution with enforcing the law. Whether by failing to enforce our immigration statutes, or failing to prosecute criminals in our streets, or violating our election procedures to favor one party, Democrat administrations in our nation’s capital and our major cities have brazenly supported criminal behavior carried out by Black Lives Matter rioters, common street thugs, and anti-Supreme Court agitators seeking to extort decisions by fear. The effect has been to systematically undermine the rule of law, stoke the fires of anarchy, and sow chaos in our institutions.

This trend has been evident since the revival of the radical left on the eve of the 9/11 attacks and its creation of Sanctuary Cities designed to flout the law and prevent the enforcement of the PATRIOT Act. It escalated with Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional — and self-acknowledged — violation of America’s immigration laws. And it spread to the revenue authority of the I.R.S., which systematically rejected the applications for tax-exempt status of conservative organizations, until the scandal grew so large that it forced the resignation of the tax commissioner Lois Lerner. But while one commissioner is gone, the illegal partisan practices of the I.R.S.  have continued to grow under her latest successor, Charles Rettig, playing a key role in skewing the results of the last presidential election. . .

. . . A rarely mentioned fact about the 2020 election is that Biden eked out a victory by perhaps the narrowest margin in history — .027% of the 159 million votes cast. This was a margin easily created by a strategic influx of campaign cash coupled with orders to spend the money on massive numbers of paper ballots, which could be harvested from “drop boxes,” which, as Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary 2000 Mules shows, were repeatedly stuffed by Democrat operatives in the middle of the night.

All these millions of Zuckerberg dollars, underwritten by American taxpayers, drew no attention from I.R.S. Commissioner Charles Rettig or the I.R.S. investigating teams whose responsibility it was to see that taxpayer supported operations like the Zuckerberg “charities” were not intervening in American election campaigns with the idea of shaping their outcomes. . .

. . . “The Zuckerberg funding is an unprecedented example of using government employees and government resources to put your finger on the scale, to affect the election outcome. It would be like giving private money to police departments to have officers do more stop-and-frisk in certain neighborhoods compared to other neighborhoods. It would be like giving money to the tax department to do increased audits in certain zip codes or neighborhoods versus other neighborhoods". . .

. . . Zuckerberg’s goal was to massively increase voter turnout in Democrat-dominated jurisdictions by maximizing fraud-breeding practices like ballot harvesting, the use of unmonitored ballot drop boxes, and mail-in voting without strict signature-matching requirements. To achieve his political ends, Zuckerberg poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the coffers of a pair of politically partisan, tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that were more than willing to do his dirty work and secure the presidency for a doddering contempt-for-the-law-and-the-truth Alzheimer’s case.

None of these travesties could have taken place without the seditious collusion of I.R.S. Commissioner Charles Rettig and his 63,000 agents whose duty is to protect the integrity of our tax laws — and, as it turns out, our elections.

David Horowitz's and John Perazzo's piece is long and goes into granular detail. A must-read for today or the weekend if you read nothing else from today's links (but read them all so you don't miss a single drop!). What does all of this portend for this November and 2024? The cynic in me says that they're going to pull out all the stops to cheat and cheat massively like they did in 2020. They have to. It may not be registering now but I think that the Left has lost the Culture War, or at the very least have taken a very deep body blow thanks to the exposure of the sexualization of our children and the poison of Jive Kampf crackpot racialism theory. On top of that, we have a collapsing economy, crime in the streets, and food and fuel shortages that the Junta is not going to be able to blame Trump, Putin, Trumputin, or even "bad luck" on.

Look at it this way; if they couldn't steal the Virginia gubernatorial race for Terry "the punk" McAwful - and you can bet your sweet ass they pulled out all the stops to do just that - I don't think they're going to be able to do it this November. And so, what's left for them to do?

Looks like a pretty safe bet that the summer riots of 2022 will be about women’s “rights,” complete with marching vulvas and Handmaid cosplay platoons. But you never know. Polls have been showing that minorities, who are usually reliable Democrat voters, have been souring on the party, so there’s always a chance we’ll pivot to race riots. But then again, anti-SCOTUS march organizers have been performing logic corkscrews in an attempt to loop in the LGBTQ brigade, so maybe that cause will hold sway after all. But one thing’s certain: we’re going to see another summer of riots.

Riots — or at the very least, large-scale organized protests (LOPs, for the sake of this article) — have become an industry, complete with its own infrastructure and professional workforce, and there are big bucks involved. Rioting isn’t going away any time soon. . .

. . . When President Obama was sworn in, disruptive LOPs immediately came to the forefront. Almost as soon as the “Lightworker” took office, banks and insurance companies were besieged by mobs that intimidated employees entering and leaving their workplaces. These actions were coordinated with Obama and the Left as they pushed radical policy changes, such as nationalized healthcare or lower-threshold mortgages for favored constituencies. Targeted companies were demonized by the White House and simultaneously terrorized by LOPs to apply maximum pressure.

At the same time, the Obama administration abused its authority to compel corporations to fork over billions of dollars to “community organizing” Leftist activist groups. This technique had been mined for years by rabble-rousers such as Jesse Jackson (and his Rainbow PUSH Coalition) and Al Sharpton, but the Obama administration levied the force of the federal government to bring it to an entirely new level. Eric Holder’s DOJ prosecuted targeted corporations, which were allowed to atone for their sins by forking over billions that were redistributed to Marxist protest factories.

When local street thug George Floyd died of a likely fentanyl overdose while a cop knelt on his neck, the system kicked into high gear. Riots erupted, Democrats hyperventilated, and corporations poured billions into the coffers of Big Protest.

Radical Leftist non-profits put the money to good use, adding office space and manpower and building partnerships with various service providers. You didn’t think all those Race and Gender Power Structures degrees were going unused, did you? LOP production is a massive industry.

And now, the infrastructure is in place and Big Protest’s shock troops are ready to roll at a moment’s notice. Not only that, but this industry is also intractably ensconced in the national establishment. The continuum comprises almost every sector."

Have a good weekend.

Yeah, that's a take, all right.

Musk has put the Twitter deal "temporarily on hold" until Twitter proves to him that bots and spammers are less than 5% of the user base, as they apparently claimed.

I'm guessing that it's a lot higher than that, that Musk has acquired hard evidence of that, and that he's going to use this fact to beat down the price.

25 Additionally, as part of Abbott's quality processes, we conduct routine testing for Cronobacter sakazakii and other pathogens in our manufacturing facilities. During testing in our Sturgis, Mich., facility, we found evidence of Cronobacter sakazakii in the plant in non-product contact areas. We found no evidence of Salmonella Newport. This investigation is ongoing.

Importantly, no distributed product has tested positive for the presence of either of these bacteria, and we continue to test. Abbott conducts extensive quality checks on each completed batch of infant formula, including microbiological analysis prior to release. All finished products are tested for Cronobacter sakazakii, Salmonella Newport and other pathogens and they must test negative before any product is released. Additionally, retained samples related to the three complaints for Cronobacter sakazakii tested negative for Cronobacter sakazakii. And the retained sample related to the complaint for Salmonella Newport tested negative for Salmonella Newport.

60 ok. the content was great. thanks for all you do JJ. especially on your birfday...

one note on the fda, i've had to deal with them indirectly. the step-dau got burned and had to spend 3 years in an experimental treatment process that used pineapple enzymes to reduce scaring. now, normally, i'd say that's not a bad thing, need to say medicine is safe, but the treatment was ALREADY in use in western europe.

so we've spent millions (billions?) of dollars, not to mention potentially altered countless lives, to review and test a treatment that is in use in europe.

the countries not exactly know for backwardness or mysticism and voodoo cures. and here i thought the lefties and govt types WANTED to be like europe...

Not proof that you're wrong, but a caveat:

We are moving very, very quickly toward a "When the Music Stops" scenario, and even the Democrats have to see that. Now, maybe (probably) they're arrogant and stupid enough to think that's a win for them, but you have to think at least a few of them remember who have the guns and most of the mechanical/technical know-how. And I know many a redneck who has refused to buy a new car for decades now because they don't trust the modern "connected whether you like it or not" cars.

It's just possible there are just enough of those relatively (low bar) sane Democrats who will throw in with Republicans to stop the skid (at least for a time) and try to restore some level of sanity.

It's slightly more likely than me winning the lottery, but I still wouldn't bet large sums of money on it. Nevertheless, the Probability is greater than 0.

92 "The fact that things like inflation can happen, and it becomes more expensive to feed your kids and to fuel your car is exactly why people need to be in charge of how many mouths they're going to have to feed," Porter said. "The fact that we're seeing this jump in expenses, that we're seeing people having to pay more in the grocery store, pay more at the pump, pay more for housing, is a reason that people are saying, ‘I need to be able to make my own decisions about when and if to start a family.'"

So the solution to poverty is abortion. Taken to a greater extreme by following this path to its conclusion, the solution to poverty is extinction. This is true, in a way. You don't have to clean your house if it burns down, but most people don't engage in housework by lighting a match.

This is a deeply evil statement and its implication is monstrous. I hope it sticks. I hope the messaging of "Republicans are making your life harder by forcing you to have expensive children during inflation" is what they run on. Even a lot of Lo-Fos will find the notion repellent.

++++
It will be much harder this time around. One of the things that made the last election's cheat possible was the special election rules. Those are largely gone. I think this is a reason - of not the reason - that they are trying to gin up a new round of COVID panic. They need those rules in place so they can rerun their fraud operation and hide it like it they did last time.

And they did do that last time, but something stood out to me about "2,000 Mules." They did a nice job with the data and I think they made a fairly compelling case. That said, none of it addressed the Six State Stop. They had this muling and trafficking operation in place and ran up the score by tens or hundreds of thousands of votes in those jurisdictions, but it still wasn't enough. The massive head start they got thanks to the 2020 election rules made it possible, but even it was inadequate. If it wasn't, they wouldn't have done the Six State Stop to bring in masses of new ballots. Even all that pre-cheating wasn't quite enough.

122 The propaganda never stops.

The only thing they have that gains *any* traction is COVID. There are still people terrified of it (because: brainwashed), so "reminding" people of it helps Democrats (at least, that's the theory).

They can't run on "don't overturn Roe v Wade"; that's just not carrying water. They can't run on their domestic agenda. They can't run on their foreign agenda. They can't run on "public corruption" because they own all the institutions right now.

They can't run on taxes, or gas prices, or inflation - they know they're going to get blamed (rightly) for all of that.

So... "COVID Scary!" and "Orange Man Still Bad!" are all they have.

125 95 Feds and Media Ignoring Doubling of Mortality Among Young and Middle-Aged Adults in Latest Data

--

Yeah, I just looked at that. The stats are very alarming. While there is nothing addressed as to why there are exploding numbers of deaths in these groups, there is only one thing in my mind that explains it. What's different now, versus at any other time? The introduction of these Frankenshots.

ODs set an all-time record last year by 15%.
Murders were up everywhere.
Suicides, I believe, were also up, and middle aged white men make up the highest rate.
Lack of anyone getting preventive medical care for 2 years.

I mean, there are other reasons.

It will, and I hope to see the outcome and that the outcome is ... disastrous for Twitter. Not because Twitter is a unique evil, but because quantifying the scale of the bot problem will have similar consequences on Facebook and Google. The bots are a problem socially because they manipulate popularity, but they're also a major problem financially because advertisers aren't paying for bot impressions. If it turns out that the bots are closer to 20% than 5%, the ad rates - and revenues and profits throughout consumer-facing Big Tech - are going to crash.

It's been bleak since Grandpa Duncecap stole the election. But especially of late, I've been getting exceedingly worried. I understand that we're not just living through an awful (stolen) presidency. One that can be corrected with the election of another president. We're living through a bonafide transformation of America. They are in the process of closing all avenues of actual liberty and freedom for the individual. They're consolidating unconstitutional powers and cementing our demise with barely a whimper from the GOPe. Surviving these 4 years of this idiot doesn't mean much when the mechanisms for our enslavement are being set up right here, right now.

135 Changes to Civil Service made this impossible long ago.

Years ago, a presidential party change at election time meant a lot of reshuffling. You'd get a new Postmaster if the Republicans took over the White House, that kind of thing. Now the Post Office or a postmaster general is no longer a cabinet level position, but you get the idea.

I think it was a good thing in some ways for sure. You never want people to get too comfortable in their job, or start homesteading.

And they can't be fired. They have a plan for Permanent Party Rule, and by the way they are acting and flying their freak flags and saying the quiet parts outloud, one might think they figure they're already there.

I mean, how would they be acting any different?

The only place that's going to help is in the blue cities, which are already controlled 100% by Democrats. People in smaller communities (like mine) have moved past COVID for the most part. Unless bodies are stacked up in the street like cordwood, that needle ain't moving towards the Democrats.

Of course that could happen due to mass starvation, which they can then chalk up as "COVID deaths."

I don't know about that. If that *is* what happened, then it would certainly be possible that the problem was that sanitary measures weren't used - and that can cause Hepatitis.

But the only places I saw in my neck of the woods (by which I mean most of the South because we were travelling a lot) were places that had already been giving injections of one sort or another. Most pharmacies now have micro-clinics that can give the flu shot or some other vaccines. So the infrastructure was already in place for that.

If you can (and even in urban areas, you often can) invest in chickens. In suburban areas, you can even get away with goats, sometimes.

Eggs and goat's milk can go a long way toward keeping you fed. Look into gardening if you aren't already. It's probably worth the $$$ (if you have the liquid cash - usually right around 1 - 2k if you buy a pre-done setup) to invest in an aeroponic or hydroponic garden.

Good thing about the 'ponics is that they produce faster than standard growing methods, too, so you'll harvest more and quicker.

189 Meh on "Exile on Main Street". Perhaps the lamest of all Stones albums.

Tired of hearing about the critic's darling album.

The Stones always functioned best as a remora to the Beatles' Great White Shark. Always playing catch up.
Their best albums reached their peak with "Sticky Fingers" and a definite quality collapse happened, when the Beatles were no longer around to (let's be kind) "inspire" them.

EoMS was the Stones last chance to mimic a Beatles release and they did. They released their uninspired, stripped down, live-play friendly version of the Beatles Get Back/Let It Be album (before it got overstuffed with Spector's production). There isn't a single song on EoMS that as strong as even the clear throwaway "One After 909".

Anyway without the Beatles around the "top rock band in the world" barfed out this mess. Weak as "Goat's Head Soup" was it was better than this dog's breakfast.

They didn't really. They're swinging axes at every support beam they can find, but they didn't build the axes.

No wrong. If America collapses there won't be any need for cheap labor as everything will be either destroyed, out of commission or just idle. On top of that, any serious civil collapse will make politicians targets for reprisal by someone or another and they won't be safe anywhere.

259 My biggest concern along these lines is what to do about Rxs.

I have, or can acquire, almost everything else to survive for a time. But not medications for the folks close to me that need them.


I advise thinking in terms of thirty days. Get the ability to keep your head down, fed and medicated if needed, with no outside food, water, or power for thirty days.

Because people die of thirst in seven days. They die of hunger in fourteen days. And they'll die of exposure in thirty days if they don't kill each other first.

Now look around. Who do you think will die first ? Do those people agree with your political views ? I'd guess probably not. I don't think this is going to be Mad Max, and I don't think it's going to be the Balkans. It's going to be a game of turtle.

Lets say all the MAGA candidates get swept in and walk on water. Lets say Desantis runs and by a miracle won the presidency. Never mind revenge for past lawbreaking by the left. How and who are going to enforce laws going forward? We know the Dems/left are lawless and have no problem using lawfare against us. They have no problem twisting and making shit up as they go. They control via the deep state every institution and law enforcement apparatus of government including the military. Does anyone really think should our side get in and attempt to clean house that their actions wouldn't be painted as a coup or insurrection and that they wouldn't be rounded up and dragged out in cuffs?

Has anyone besides JJ been paying attention the last few years?

We need to continue to fight politically with elections just in case, but be prepared for shit to go sideways and for the scenario I described, or something like it to play out. The left is not going to cede the power they've acquired willingly. I guarantee it.

281 189 Meh on "Exile on Main Street". Perhaps the lamest of all Stones albums.

Tired of hearing about the critic's darling album.

The Stones always functioned best as a remora to the Beatles' Great White Shark. Always playing catch up.
Their best albums reached their peak with "Sticky Fingers" and a definite quality collapse happened, when the Beatles were no longer around to (let's be kind) "inspire" them.

EoMS was the Stones last chance to mimic a Beatles release and they did. They released their uninspired, stripped down, live-play friendly version of the Beatles Get Back/Let It Be album (before it got overstuffed with Spector's production). There isn't a single song on EoMS that as strong as even the clear throwaway "One After 909".

Anyway without the Beatles around the "top rock band in the world" barfed out this mess. Weak as "Goat's Head Soup" was it was better than this dog's breakfast.

- The entire Democratic Party, but especially everyone currently in Washington

- The entire leadership of every publically traded corporation
- Healthcare in general, which is 1/6 th of the American GDP.

China doesn't have to win through war what it can have with friendship. Commodities are something they would have to pay for one way or another, and it's a lot better than joining the US on an ICBM list in Moscow.

She also lost in her district by 20 points to her Dem by opponent.

And you'd lose. Commodities are something China can buy as effortlessly as any country. More to the point, Russia's relative vulnerability to a lack of semiconductors will only reinforce China's determination to completely subjugate Taiwan, besides the obvious historical nationalism.

Don't take my word for it, read literally any English language Chinese newspaper. They're not all as hostile to America as Global Times, but no one's talking about invading Russia. By contrast, GT has been endlessly reminding Taiwan that the USA will promise all help short of actual intervention. As in, nothing useful. The recent cancellation of artillery sales to Taiwan doesn't discourage such an idea.

339 If you've a water heater, keep in mind they typically hold 40 to 50 gallons or more, that can be used for drinking purposes in Emergency. That can last a pretty good while. It would be well to treat it, with filters or chemical disinfectant.

If water service to your residence is interrupted in this scenario, be sure to turn off the main water valve completely at the service entrance, there is a tendency for the water to get sucked back into the system, out of your water heater.

Trump didn't get involved with the lockdowns directly because he turned out to be a strong believer in federalism(not really what we need right now but traditionally respectable). Governors locked down or didn't lock down their states.

The vaccine for that matter was an attempt to encourange the end of lockdowns.

2) Covertly and overtly assisting Russia to drain America dry (mission accomplished at $40 billion) while looking like a global "peacekeeper."

So...the clot shot killed 1% of the people that took it baring some other weird event in Scotland then. AFAIK this was never discussed and no alternative explanation was given

I am not sure and I might be reading too much into it, but it looks like a panic move and a weak one to me. All of the loud agitation and rabble-rousing has been in places where this won't matter (at least, it won't matter for many years). They are trying to whip their own base in safe districts. There isn't large-scale stuff where it might matter and pull closet supporters out of the woodwork. Nothing huge in places like Tennessee or Iowa.

They're making noise and looking for press coverage, but it won't move the needle because it's already where they are strong. The facts about NJ don't matter. They all know its nonsense. They count on the lo-fos not knowing that and to get some press coverage.

However, that's a feature not a bug. Remember, when the left didn't completely get what it wanted with the Lightbringer, it was his fault, not the result. He just didn't try enough.

After the hopefully massacre in Nov, Biden will be tossed overboard because "He's too old and didn't implement correctly. "

413 So, 'working remotely' for two years helped the FDA shape a new and improved workforce. (No doubt, it made a difference in its 'ability to hire and retain talent,' as all alphabet agencies of the Executive Branch would tell us.)

That likely overshadowed real problems such as disruptions to labor, transportation and raw materials that didn't spare any manufacturing/food processing industries and also the stockpiling of baby formula by some sources during the lockdowns, often for substantial profit.

There's also the 21st Century Cure Act, signed into law 12/16, which directed the FDA to establish new expedited product development programs for certain eligible biologics products and speed the review of certain innovative medical devices.

It's not just baby formula. Insulin necessary for more than a million & a half Type 1 diabetics in the country remains very expensive, and the pandemic led to both hoarding or rationing in many areas and, reportedly, an increase in patient complications.

Russia will not retreat from Ukrainian territory following a cease-fire. A cease-fire in the near-term leaves Biden responsible for Obama-Biden effectively giving Russia another important slice of Ukraine, along with Crimea. Biden's ego will not permit this.

Back hen I worked in corporate America (as a software systems analyst, designer, & developer) I accidentally -- owing to always being overwhelmed -- stumbled onto something I dubbed the "two-week inbox theory" that eventually my wife (whom I met at work) came to love and adopt:

I would only look at and address an item in my inbox if it was at least two weeks old ... and came to find that 95% of the "crisis of the day" requests had become obsolete in two weeks time and didn't need to be addressed. [Of course, this was before email made our working & normal lives hell ...]

You're wrong. He left it up to the states. Imagine the pushback had he Decreed XYZ.

Imagine Biden now doing that even with the full federal behind him instituting national mask mandates.

The left was always going to do what it did at that time with an eye at November. Give them credit. They had a vision and implemented it.

Maybe it'll change after the opinion is officially released (Next Monday? Next next Monday? What is next Monday?), but it really feels like the Democratic base is just completely depressed and a massive loss on one of their core issues just isn't getting them motivated to help out the Party.

Reality's giving it good and hard to everyone (except Our Betters) and baby, you ain't a Better.

But, naturalfake, naturalfake, what about RvW! Huh? What about that?
RvW is a disappointment for them. But, it doesn't end abortion. To a certain degree, it frees them by returning abortion to the states. Crazy ass, fanatic, inhumane Blue Shithole Abortion Law, here we come.
As with the Biden "Economy", they achieved their goals long enough that the clean-up will take years if not decades.

463 @383 Sponge-Spending? Sure enough, disappointing. Either way I don't think we are going to dig our way out or avoid the impending collapse no matter if we had budget cutting hawks. What will alleviate a collapse is having jobs brought back to this country which was in Trumps agenda. He had two years of his presidency basically with the covid BS. If he would have cut spending in half in his one term, tell me what good would it have done? I'm not saying to not be concerned about spending, but if he had cut spending so what. We've seen the outcome. Election was stolen, what good would it have done? He didn't lose the election because our side stayed home because of spending. Ida much rather pressed him later on about spending with another term and see his agenda implemented in bringing jobs back to this country.

I'm sure there like numbers in the rest of the world who also have functional spigots. Will somebody please tell me why this is? Have our females become so selfish or sensitive that they are sequestering these special nutrients?
