C&C. Proud of President Biden. So Lucky to have MSM.

Discount to your heart’s content. I think Mr. Childers is right on the money. The President, the Democrat Party, the MSM and most “swamp Republicans” are responsible for every ounce of good will, friendship and integrity that America loses each day. At best its crickets from these people: “Send me money!!” I’ll take the likes of Jim Jordan, and Gov. Desantis any day.

🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞

🔥 It’s affidavit day! Yesterday, side-swapper and former Epstein lawyer Bruce Reinhart, Magistrate over the Biden Raid case, ordered the FBI to disclose its heavily-redacted search warrant affidavit by sometime today, conveniently heading into the weekend news cycle. The redacted affidavit was already prepared and the Magistrate has already reviewed it. So the order looks to me like puffing; he’s ordering them to redact and disclose an already-redacted affidavit.

Anyway, here’s what the Magistrate’s order said about the redactions:

Based on my independent review of the Affidavit, I further find that the government has met its burden of showing that the proposed redactions are narrowly tailored to serve the Government’s legitimate interest in the integrity of the ongoing investigation and are the least onerous alternative to sealing the entire Affidavit.

Narrowly-tailored! Remember that phrase for when we see the document. It’s heartwarming that the FBI got all their redactions EXACTLY RIGHT on the very first try. Great job! It’s a crime-fighting miracle. Absent from this latest order was any of the high-flying language from the last order about the unprecedented nature of the investigation, the public’s interest, and so on. This order was all business.

So we’ll see whether whatever is actually disclosed today moves the needle at all. I have no predictions, none; we’re in all-new territory, and Kamala spilled her blackberry wine cooler all over the map again.

💉 CNN picked up the Fetterman stroke-speech story yesterday — after C&C covered it — and the clip below includes some helpful examples of Fetterman’s obvious post-stroke cognitive struggles:

You win some, you lose some. At least he won’t have any serious side effects from COVID.

🔥 The UK Telegraph ran a story yesterday that will gratify many of you headlined, “Rishi Sunak Is Just the Start. The Great Lockdown Scandal Is About to Unravel.” The sub-head explains, “The pseudo-scientific sheen is finally being stripped off the decision to shut down Britain.”

Rishi Sunak was Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer during the pandemic, and recently ran to replace Boris Johnson. His campaign stalling, he is now talking to journalists about the climate of fear and total control inside the British government during the early pandemic when lockdowns were originally being cooked up.

Sunak says that virtually all decision-making was handed over to a small group of cherry-picked lockdown scientists, and everyone was expected to go along or face political destruction. In other words, the lockdown instructions were coming from the top. The article describes it like this:

Questioning lockdown, even in ministerial meetings, was seen as an attack on the Prime Minister’s authority. To ask even basic questions – about how many extra cancer deaths there might be, for example – was to risk being portrayed as one the crackpots, the “Cov-idiots”, people who wanted to “let the virus rip”. Hysteria had taken hold in the heart of Whitehall.

The paywalled article is a very interesting read for folks who hope that accountability will someday catch up with current events. Here are my favorite two paragraphs:

The disclosures should start a great unravelling of the lockdown myth, its pseudo-scientific sheen stripped away and the shocking political malfeasance left to stand exposed. Were Sage minutes manipulated, with dissent airbrushed out? If Sage “scenarios” were cooked up on fundamentally wrong assumptions we need to know, because that will mean lockdowns were imposed or extended upon a false premise. A premise that could have been exposed as false, had there been basic transparency or proper scrutiny.
This isn’t just about a virus. An autocratic streak took hold of the Government and overpowered a weak Prime Minister – and did so because our democratic safeguards failed. It should have been impossible for policies of such huge consequence to be passed without the most rigorous scrutiny. So many lives were at risk that every single lockdown assumption should have been pulled apart to see if it was correct. It should have been impossible for government to suspend such scrutiny for more than a few weeks.

This is a good start, and it’s encouraging to see it in corporate media. But a huge question remains: Who was directing this from the top? WHO or WHAT was able to coerce nearly every government on Earth into going along with the lockdown program, no matter the cost, all within a few days of each other?

Obviously, we can only speculate. For my Revelation watchers, these verses seem like a hint:

“Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery:

BABYLON THE GREAT

THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES

AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

Revelation 17:3-5.

I don’t know. I’m a lawyer, not a theologian. But to me, it seems like a pretty good description of the mysterious whoever or whatever orchestrated the global pandemic response.¹

🔥 Joe Biden has now gone 40 out of 56 days without taking a single question from the media, and he has not sat for an on-camera interview since February 10th.

🚀 Remember when Biden jetted over to Israel and Saudi Arabia, fist-bumping everybody, all notwithstanding having sworn during the campaign to make the Saudis into a “pariah nation” for assassinating a woke international journalist and probably spy of some kind? But it was all okay, no problem bwana, because Joe’s high-minded trip was well-intentioned, for the express purpose of brokering Middle East peace, and it was definitely NOT to beg the Saudis for oil. (How dare you.)

Well, it turns out Joe’s interest in Middle East peace comes and goes. You have to catch him on a good day.

The Times of Israel ran an embarrassing story Wednesday with the oblique headline, “US Said to Rebuff Request for Lapid-Biden Call, Gantz-Austin Meet Amid Iran Push.”

Haha, I don’t wonder the Times of Israel soft-pedaled the headline. What really happened was, Israel’s Prime Minister Yair Lapid urgently called Biden to talk to about the Iranian nuclear situation, saying it was an emergency. Then — get this — he was icily told “Biden is on vacation, dummy. He’ll call you back when he’s in the office.”

I am not making that up or exaggerating in any way, I swear. Here’s how the Times of Israel described what happened, in its own words:

> [T]he White House recently rejected an Israeli request for an emergency phone call between Prime Minister Yair Lapid and US President Joe Biden… the president’s office claimed Biden was unavailable for a conversation with the premier because he was on vacation. However, the sources emphasized that the talk would be arranged eventually.

“CLAIMED Biden was unavailable,” haha. Good one.

Now remember, Israel is the U.S.’s MOST important Middle-East ally. Allegedly. And Israel is armed to the wisdom teeth with nukes. And it has sworn to start a preemptive nuclear war if necessary to prevent Iran from getting its own nuclear weapons. And Joe was JUST THERE a month ago to “broker peace” in the region. So that’s a lot of reasons to take the call right there.

Now add the fact that Joe is on his FOURTH WEEK of being out of action, two weeks of double-covid quarantine, followed by two weeks of vacation to recover from his harrowing brush with death. I mean, at HIS AGE, Joe practically has to brush the Wings of Death out of his mouth every time he takes a nibble from his Rocky Road triple scoop. They’re basically sharing a bathroom at this point.

The U.S. is about to close a deal with Iran, which has demanded even more money, the legitimization of its terrorist front group, higher allowed levels of nuclear enrichment, less oversight, the instructor’s manual to some class called “How to Build a Nuclear Bomb,” free passes for Disney cruises, and six truckloads of all-green M&Ms with Khamenei’s face printed on the sides. For its part, the U.S. has demanded that the Iranians sign the deal, any deal, it doesn’t matter, just sign the damned thing.

You wouldn’t know anything about this appalling spectacle by reading U.S. corporate media, it’s embargoed. I had to use Israeli sources and translate the whole thing from Hebrew:

Haha, just kidding. The Times of Israel has an English language version. But I’m NOT kidding that U.S. media is pretending like the story doesn’t exist, like a bunch of teenagers carefully stepping over a puppy accident to grab a power-bar from the kitchen and muttering, “what? I didn’t see it.”

The Hebrew state is conflicted about what to do about the pending Iran deal. The Jerusalem Post illustrated the difficulty in an article Wednesday headlined, “Lapid Close to Criticizing Biden on Iran as Netanyahu Looms Large.” The sub-head asked the pressing question, “Should Israel ‘play nice’ with the White House or be aggressive when it comes down to Iran nuclear talks?”

The article reports that Prime Minister Lapid is not super copacetic with the proposed M&M deal with Iran, but neither does he want to get sideways with Biden. He delicately told reporters, “In our eyes, [the Iran deal] does not meet the standards set by President Biden himself: preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear state.”

So.

🚀 I need to brief you in on the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Plant situation, because it’s big and murky and mostly embargoed. I’ll start with a Hill article yesterday headlined, “Biden, Zelensky Discuss Concerns Over Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Plant.”

Haha, Israel, vacationing Biden doesn’t have time to talk about YOUR nuclear problems with Iran, but he does have all the time in the world to chat with the dancing comedian about HIS little nuclear power plant issue.

   

A White House call summary explained, “The two leaders also called for Russia to return full control of the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant to Ukraine and for International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) access to the plant.”

Like THAT is going to happen.

So what is it? Zaporizhzhya is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. Russia has safely and quietly controlled the plant since early in the war. But lately the Ukrainians have been lobbing mortars at the plant, for weeks now, which is making a lot of people very nervous about a potential ‘accident’ that could be literally one million times worse than Three Mile Island multiplied by Chernobyl.

Currently, Ukraine enjoys the protection of a fully-powered-up criticism shield, which destroys all Western media that touches it. So, OF COURSE the Zaporizhzhya threat is ALL Russia’s fault — not the bat-guano insane Ukrainians firing explosive rounds at a NUCLEAR POWER PLANT. Are you confused? It’s Russia’s fault because Putin started the war in the first place. See how easy that was?

Ironically, the Ukrainians have justified the shelling by accusing the Russians of storing ammunition and military supplies inside the reactor grounds. I say ‘ironically’ because Ukraine has itself been credibly accused of placing ammo and supplies in civilian locations like schools, shopping malls, apartment buildings, and churches.

But I don’t know if they’re truly comparable. It seems like a nuclear reactor is a strategic, non-civilian site, and if you captured it, you’d probably want some military hardware there, because capturing a target is only half the equation. You also have to KEEP the target. You don’t want nuclear power plants falling into the wrong hands.

But I’m just a lawyer, not a woke, unattractive cross-dressing general. So what do I know about military strategy?

🔥 Yesterday, citing obvious safety concerns, the Russians disconnected the Zaporizhzhya plant from the European power grid for the first time in history. Since it is almost impossible to find any credible reporting about the situation in Western corporate media, I am forced to rely on local independent reports on Twitter, which suggest the power outage continues this morning:

The ability to turn the power on and off is an ace card for the Russians. From the beginning of the war, I wondered about why the Russians were not taking out all Ukraine’s power. It would be child’s play. But it has become clear over time that the Russians are being extremely careful to avoid damaging civilians and civilian infrastructure as much as possible.

Leaving the power off for too long will create a humanitarian disaster, which the Russians seem to be trying to avoid. But strategically turning it on and off at critical moments, like maybe whenever U.S. congresspeople come for photo ops and to deliver or pick stuff up, could be a very useful weapon in the overall war effort.

This may just be another one of those myriad of stories that mysteriously fades away again after the outrage machine billows smoke and pivots loudly toward a different target. But I thought you should hear about it.

🔥 In the bottom story of the day, the crack squad of highly motivated personnel down at the Texas Child Protective Services’ office are getting, um, creative about ways to help orphaned kids. Fox 26 Houston ran a story last week headlined, “CPS Employee Caught on Camera Telling 14-Year-Old Girl to Become a Prostitute.”

It seems like that’s exactly what happened. CPS has already fired the worker and is trying to move all the involved kids around, leaving some parents complaining they are being punished for blowing the whistle. CPS has not denied any of the allegations. What happened was, a 14-year-old runaway living in a state-supplied motel, waiting for a foster placement, went in to the Houston CPS office to complain about being hungry. Because she’d received sketchy advice before, the teen used her cell phone to record the CPS worker’s advice.

In the video, the CPS worker can clearly be heard telling the girl she could make up to $1,500 a day as a prostitute, so that she can get some food. It’s a pretty wild story, but at least Child Pimping Services, I mean PROTECTIVE Services, did the right thing and buried the story beneath a thousand banker’s boxes of red tape.

Who cares how many times it’s happened before, whether there are other caseworkers involved, or whether there even might be an organized sex trafficking ring operating out of that office?

Don’t be nitpicky.

🔥 Finally, to warm your hearts, Governor DeSantis — who has been on a ROLL for two years now — took a hostile election question from reporters yesterday, jammed it into a political hand grenade, and tossed it right back at them:

Enjoy!

I hope ya’ll have a fantastic Friday, and I’ll meet you back here tomorrow for the weekend roundup.

*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY*

💉 The Wall Street Journal ran two related stories yesterday. The first headline: “Lufthansa Cancels 2,000 More Flights, Citing Staff Shortages.” The second article’s headline was, “12 Hours of Misery at Heathrow: Huge Crowds, Lost Bags, Endless Cancellations.”

More software bugs! It must be contagious, just like covid. That’s how software bugs work right? It started with American Airlines’ mass flight cancellations last week because of a bug that caused “scheduling errors,” and now it has spread all the way to Europe.

But it is DEFINITELY NOT pilot shortages. No way. Because science. That would be impossible. And, how dare you?

🔥 Yesterday, House Democrats unanimously rejected a proposed amendment by Representative Chip Roy (R-Tx) that would have increased the minimum sentence for convicted child traffickers from 10 to 15 years.

I mean, higher sentences for people who force kids into lives of prostitution and drugs? Why, that’s just over-policing. We can’t have that.

Now, people who walk into the Capitol building without permission or criticize woke school board members? That’s an entirely different story.

🔥 Five months ago, creepy Joe Biden appointed creepy-looking Russell Rappel-Schmid as the Chief Data Officer for the U.S. Postal Service’s Regulatory Commission.

It’s not a small job. The PRC oversees the entire US Postal Service. It also — and especially — oversees mail-in balloting operations. But just recently, due to a citizen-led program to out pedophile predators, Mr. Rappel-Schmid was arrested by local police for soliciting what he thought was a 14-year-old boy and attempting to set up a meeting.

The citizens orchestrated a “meetup” in a hotel room and confronted Russell, who, shocked and presumably ashamed, admitted on camera that “I’m a pedophile.” Case closed.

Russell Rappel-Schmid’s arraignment in federal court is set for Monday.

Russell has been fired, of course. But, being totally compromised, wouldn’t he have made a great Chief of the PRC for some people who want some influence over how the mail-in ballots are handled during elections? Seems like a teeny-tiny security flaw to me, but what do I know? I’m just a lawyer.

🔥 Speaking of pedophiles. Yesterday in Jerusalem, Biden met with Israel’s interim prime minister Yair Lapid. It’s a very interesting trip. You might be forgiven for concluding that Biden is out there trying to shore up damaged relationships with U.S. allies against Russia.

The official explanation is that Biden is taking time out of his hectic schedule of fighting inflation, fighting Russians, fighting disinformation, fighting for women’s rights, fighting to bring down gas prices, fighting for dems in the mid-term elections, and fighting for the children — always fighting for the children — to jet over to the Middle East to try to broker a better peace deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia than President Trump already got.

You believe Biden’s just over there negotiating peace deals, right?

It’s a no-brainer. I mean, just look at the all the talent you have right there. One of the men has the lowest presidential approval rating in US history and the other is the interim prime minister of a temporary government. It’s the perfect setup for major peace deals, am I right?

According to international media, Biden and Lapid signed an agreement yesterday to “deny Iran nuclear weapons.” In public comments, Joe said that the U.S. was “open” to using force as a “last resort” to prevent the Iranians from getting the bomb, but Biden stressed that what the U.S. really wants is for Iran to return to the Obama-era “deal” where Iran got cash in exchange for some pinkie promises not to cheat.

A France24 article said some Israelis are unexcited over Biden’s involvement, for some reason:

Some Israeli as well as Gulf Arab officials believe the [proposed] deal’s sanctions relief would provide Iran with far more money to support proxy forces in Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and Iraq. They are also skeptical about whether the Biden administration will do much to counter Iran’s regional activities.

Weird. I wonder why they doubt Joe would be much help in countering Iran?

Joe’s next stop: a brand-new “annual” conference called I2U2, where Biden will meet with India’s prime minister and announce two billion dollars of bribes, I mean aid, to India for “food security,” scraped together from compliant Israel, UAE and American “private companies.”

You believe that right? Biden is out there helping other countries with their food security because it’s the right thing to do?

At a recent White House press briefing about Biden’s trip, reporters asked National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan why India seems so prominent in Biden’s agenda lately. Sullivan answered serving up a large bowl of word salad, and never once mentioned India’s recent flirtation with Russia and China, or its membership in BRICS. Remember: Trump had won India over as a solid U.S. ally, but as soon as he entered office, Biden began ritualistically dismembering all of Trump’s India deals with a hot skinning knife.

I guess now Biden wishes he hadn’t done that. Here’s Ted Cruz saying the same thing I’ve been saying:

Jake Sullivan also said Wednesday, before the trip, that the president would avoid shaking hands during the trip because covid. He followed that policy when he arrived in Israel, greeting interim Prime Minister Yair Lapid and other officials with fist bumps.

Then — whoopsies! He Bidened it. Not long after meeting with Lapid, Joe apparently forgot about covid and shook hands with former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who appears positioned to win November elections and become the next prime minister of Israel. He wasn’t wearing a mask either.

You can make those kinds of mistakes when you’re a private citizen. But if you the head of a state, you can lose allies with these kinds of gaffes.

Biden’s next stop is Saudi Arabia, where he is scheduled to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to unofficially talk oil production. Officially the White House says it’s not about oil production at all. Diverse White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday, “I’m saying [oil production is] not, it’s not, it’s not the focus… [and] not… on the agenda.”

You believe that right? Even Jake Sullivan doesn’t believe that:

Anyway, industry insiders think it won’t amount to much. ZeroHedge ran a story yesterday headlined, “Why Biden Could Come Back From Saudi Arabia Empty Handed.” It points out that Middle East oil producers have very little capacity to spare. And I’m sure you’ll recall that Macron recently — and publicly — told Biden the Saudi’s don’t have any excess production to offer. So that’s one problem.

Another problem is that during the campaign, Biden delighted leftwing activists by promising to turn Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman into a “pariah” for ordering a hit on anti-semitic journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Trump had repaired the relationship with Saudi Arabia to the point that he got them to enter a history peace deal, the Abraham Accords. Then Biden threw it all away.

I wonder if a guy who orders hit jobs on journalists is a forgiving and understanding kind of person. I guess Joe’s about to find out.

🔥 Mintpress News, which is really doing some fantastic investigative journalism lately, ran a story yesterday headlined, “Meet the Ex-CIA Agents Deciding Facebook’s Content Policy.” The gist is — and this is going to shock you — Facebook has hired a whole raft of experienced CIA agents, while Twitter seems to favor the FBI for its personnel pool.

Take Aaron Berman, for example. For years he used to help craft the CIA’s daily security briefing for the President. In 2019 Berman left the Agency as a senior analytic manager and joined Meta as its senior product policy manager for… misinformation. Of course.

As Mintpress properly notes, there are rational reasons why the social media giants would want some folks with law enforcement background, to protect the platforms from abuse by various kinds of bad actors. But the sheer number of “former” agents in the media companies, at all the key positions of influence, staggers the imagination. Mintpress says it’s getting hard to tell where the government stops and the social media companies begin.

Of course, there’s another, more sinister possibility. How long would it take for the U.S. agencies to figure out that the social media companies were trying to acquire some of their talent, and devise a strategy to occupy the influential private firms? Like, how does someone like Aaron Berman go from writing critical top-secret daily security briefs for the President of the United States to a happy fun product manager at Facebook?

It feels like we don’t know the whole story. That’s all I’m saying.

I took a look at Aaron’s tweet history. His posts are bland, happy fun comments about his personal life. He offers lots of professional tips like how to write more effectively on Twitter. He sits just left of center in his political tone. On the one hand, he seems mildly concerned about climate change, but on the other hand, he observes that, no matter many gender-neutral toys he and his wife offer her, his daughter still just wants to play with Barbie. None of his posts reference elections, politicians, or direct political issues.

He’s everyman and no man.

If you’re curious, watch Aaron’s happy fun product manager video here, where he doesn’t mention his CIA history at all, for some reason.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments.

🔥 The New York Times has finally found itself a Trump supporter that they can sympathize with. Yesterday the paper ran a story headlined, “‘It’s Just Been Hell’: Life as the Victim of a Jan. 6 Conspiracy Theory.” They interviewed the “victim,” despised January 6th instigator Ray Epps, who is the mysterious figure in dozens of videos shouting at people to attack the Capitol hours before the January 6th riot — but who has never been arrested or even formally investigated.

Epps is outraged. The Times allowed him to describe himself as a father, a former Marine, and a staunch but disillusioned conservative whose leaders had betrayed him. “I am at the center of this thing, and it’s the biggest farce that’s ever been,” he said. “It’s just not right. The American people are being led down a path. I think it should be criminal,” Epps whined.

Haha, the Times says Epps has been “searching for a lawyer to help them file a defamation lawsuit.” Mark my words: that will never happen. Since truth is a defense to defamation, anyone Epps sues would have discovery rights, and Epps would have to testify under oath — not to a reporter — that he wasn’t working for one of the intelligence agencies on January 6th, which is something he’s so far managed to avoid.

In the article, Epps admitted that he had acted stupidly at times. “Tomorrow, we need to go IN to the Capitol! IN to the Capitol!,” Epps persistently urged peaceful J6 demonstrators on the evening of January 5th. Remarkably, Epps said he regretted texting his nephew and bragging about how he’d helped to orchestrate the movements of people leaving Mr. Trump’s speech near the White House by pointing them toward the Capitol. To my knowledge, that text message has never been public before now. Is it coming?

But, the Times explained, because he came clean, the FBI was totally satisfied that Epps’ efforts to gin up a mob to breach the Capitol were completely and totally harmless. He was just misunderstood. The Times unquestioning reported that Epps said all he really wanted was to calm people down, and I am not making that up.

Epps says he thinks the cartels are now trying to kill him. So Epps has sold his ranch and he and his wife are living out of his RV for the time being, on the move. It’s not because he’s trying to avoid process servers and conservative media reporters. No, no, never.

The Times’ article is completely credulous, expressing no doubt whatsoever about Epps’ fairy stories and tall tales. It’s the very first January 6th conservative — albeit a “disillusioned” conservative, whatever that is — that the New York Times has ever found. Never mind that Epps admitted he orchestrated getting people from Trump’s speech to the Capitol. Never mind that he loudly and publicly urged people to attack the Capitol. Who cares?

Tellingly the article does not quote Epps — not anywhere — actually denying that he was working for someone. He never denies that he was a provocateur, or that he was working with law enforcement. He never explains why he was even there in the first place, since it has been confirmed that Epps did not attend Trump’s speech. So why go?

Even more bizarre, the article fails to mention that the New York Times ITSELF has “victimized” Epps, in its January 6th “documentary,” where it included video of Epps encouraging people to breach the Capitol:

Darren J. Beattie is the courageous editor of Revolver News, which has covered the Epps story for over a year now. Beattie thinks the Times’ buttkissing love letter is just battlespace preparation for leaks they know are coming that are going to damage the January 6th Commission. Like maybe that text message, or maybe more.

Either way, thanks New York Times! Thanks for finally saying something nice about a “conservative” who attended the J6 protests. Fair and balanced.

Have a terrific Thursday, and I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow for your refills. And we serve no weak half-caff here at Coffee & Covid, so get ready.

Coffee & Covid. Monday, June 6, 2022: LET’S PLAY

*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY*

CBS NEWS ran an article Friday headlined, “Why Boosted Americans Seem to Be Getting More COVID-19 Infections.”

Weird!

The bottom line is that the situation is baffling. CBS says the problem could be that the way we’ve been measuring cases for two years is just too complicated: “the shift [to booster cases] underscores the growing complexity of measuring vaccine effectiveness at this stage of the pandemic.” So officials are looking for different ways to measure cases now. For accuracy, you know.

The CDC thinks a survey system might be better than all this testing. “Moving beyond this crisis, I do think the future is in random sampling. And that’s an area that we’re looking at closely,” CDC official Caitlin Rivers said.

But on the other hand, CBS’s handpicked covid expert thinks it could be jabbed people’s fault: “So, one of the dynamics here is that people feel, after vaccination and boosting, that they’re more protected than they actually are, so they increase their risks,” he said. “That, I think, is the major driver of these statistics.”

Let me see if I have this straight. For SOME reason, the expert worries that vaccinated people mistakenly feel they are PROTECTED. Which, apart from being unintentionally hilarious, is a mistake because they should be masking up and locking down, or something.

So … remind me — WHY did they take the jab again?

💉 Last week, the New York Post ran an alarming story headlined “Urgent Warning to Women Under 40 After Sharp Rise in Sudden Killer.”

It’s urgent!

The first line of the article urgently reports that healthy young women are now mysteriously dying of a sudden “killer disease.” A killer DISEASE? Is it monkeypox? Small pox? Chicken pox? Hog pox? Biden pox? Some other kind of pox?

No. It’s BLOOD CLOTS. That’s the “killer disease.”

Apparently, newly-released Scottish data shows that deaths from blood clots in young women doubled after 2019 and are still increasing as of the latest report. Don’t worry, the Post carefully hauls out an anecdote about a random young woman dying from a blood clot in 2002 — long before jabs — obviously trying to sneakily prove something it is too chicken to directly mention.

There are LOTS of things that cause blood clots these days, according to the Post. Pregnancy, contraceptives, smoking, being overweight, family history, and watching too much TV can all cause blood clots in people young and old. But the Post doesn’t speculate AT ALL about why young women should be particularly affected, over other groups, right now.

Baffling!

Even if the experts won’t, I’ll speculate. Young women take a unique combination of two medicines: contraceptives and jabs. If only we had a well-funded government agency that could look into that kind of coincidence.

🦘 Cheerleaders of the apocalypse might be about to learn a lesson. Last Thursday, New South Wales, Australia reported 82 of 98 people (84%) who died of covid for the week ending May 28th were jabbed, including 64 with at least one booster. Of 41 people sent to ICU, only two were unvaccinated, with 11 unknowns. Even counting the 11 unknowns, the vast majority were jabbed. But that’s just the beginning.

As you surely know, Ozzies aimed for covid-zero with a gusto exceeded only by the communist Chinese. Almost no sacrifice of other people’s rights was too great for Australians, who reckoned that a couple years of stripping their neighbors’ jobs and livelihoods, consigning thousands to lonely deaths in nightmarish covid wards and elderly care facilities, plus other punishing covid restrictions, would somehow shield the core crowd of selfish human wombats who happily cheered the government on to greater and greater heights of authoritarian excess.

Rarely does karma arrive on the scene as quickly as it has Down Under. I take no joy in reporting it, nor should anyone. But we must force ourselves to look and learn from the Australians’ errors.

As I’ve reported before, Australia is being pummeled by a tsunami of excess deaths. The most recent report issued May 25th, and shows excess mortality growing, now more than 20% over baseline levels. In other words, every month, thousands more Australians are dying than normal. Thousands.

At least half of the deaths are not covid. The covid deaths are surprising because Australians were told they’d be protected by the vaccines that many had cheered for. Australia didn’t really have any covid deaths till they started jabbing everybody. Now they have lots.

Most of the non-covid deaths in the recent report are from diabetes and dementia. A couple recent studies linked jabs to diabetes:

— September 11, 2021. “Severe Diabetic Ketoacidosis After the Second Dose of mRNA-1273 COVID-19 Vaccine.” Zilbermint, Demidowich.

— December 21, 2021. “Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) temporally related to COVID-19 vaccination.” Ganakumar et al.

We all hope this trend quickly disappears. But who knows what the ultimate cost to Australians will be, when you add up all the lives lost, productivity squandered in lockdowns, economies damaged, social trust vaporized, and so forth. It seems inevitable that pro-lockdown, pro-vaccine Australians are about to learn a very difficult lesson.

Excluding people who were coerced into taking the jabs to save their jobs, of course: karma’s a hairy tarantula.

Meanwhile, Australia media is focused on stuff like THIS:

💉 A 2006 journal article titled “Sudden cardiac death in athletes: the Lausanne Recommendations,” provides data on historic athlete cardiac deaths. The study discloses that, over a 35-year period between 1966-2004, “sudden cardiac death” occurred in 1,101 reported cases in athletes under 35 years old, or an average of about 31 per year, or 2.5 deaths per month.

Another study on cardiac disease in US athletes, over a 26 year period between 1980 to 2006 in thirty-eight sports, found 1,866 deaths of athletes with cardiac disease — about 71 deaths per year on average, or 5.9 per month.

In 2021, 394 athlete deaths were reported, plus 279 for the 2022 year to date. That’s an average of 42 per month between 2021-2022. So, in other words, it’s not just your imagination.

💉 University of Massachusetts Amherst lacrosse player Aidan Kaminska, 19, died “unexpectedly” on May 30, according to an online obituary. No cause of death provided.

💉 Jayda Grant, 20, track athlete and daughter of Dayton basketball coach Anthony Grant, died suddenly and unexpectedly Friday. The Greene County Coroner’s Office told a WHIO-TV reporter that her death was “still under investigation.”

The loss of these young lives is a tragedy. I hope that one day the families will receive closure and transparency.

😷 For some reason the White House’s covid coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha isn’t too clear on whether we’re past school lockdowns yet or not. At a presser late last week, a reporter asked him about the issue, but our extra-diverse new press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre hustled him away before Jha could answer the question. After answering scads of media questions, it suddenly and unexpectedly went like this:

REPORTER: Doctor, do you believe all schools will and must be open this coming fall?

JEAN-PIERRE: We got to go.

JHA: Yeah, I unfor—

REPORTER: Parents want to know that.

JEAN-PIERRE: He has to go.

JHA: I’m sorry.

JEAN-PIERRE: We’re over time. We’re over time.

JHA: Thank you. Sorry.

JEAN-PIERRE: Thank you.

So, get ready. Who knows what’ll actually happen, but this fall could be a wild ride.

🔥 Still, miracles DO happen. For example, the Toronto Sun ran a miraculous staff editorial last week headlined, and I am not making this up, “EDITORIAL: Trudeau Needs to Drop the COVID Theatre.” It asked this excellent question:

“The virus has receded to the background of our lives … It’s now being managed like any other similar respiratory illness. So why is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau digging in his heels when it comes to keeping some pandemic measures?”

An excellent question. Next, the Sun peeked through the covid clouds and finally showed some sympathy for unjabbed people:

“While we have encouraged people to get vaccinated in this space before, we also see zero justification for continuing to restrict the lives of unvaccinated persons to travel.”

And amazingly, the editorial concluded with a call to end all covid restrictions:

“It’s time for Trudeau to do the right thing and drop these over-the-top rules. At this point, they’re nothing more than COVID theatre.”

So the question for Canadians is: Will Trudeau and his cabinet follow the political winds? Or will they follow the WEF?

🔥 In another example of karma arriving timely, former anti-trump lawyer and potential democrat presidential candidate Michael Avenatti was finally sentenced to 4 more years in prison late last week, for defrauding his porn star client Stormy Daniels out of $300,000. He’s already in jail on other charges for trying to extort millions from the Nike corporation.

During sentencing, the judge said that, while there were ways in which Avenatti had “done good in the world,” he had also committed “brazen and egregious” crimes and “breached the highest duty a lawyer owes” to a client. Mr. Avenatti, seeking to garner sympathy and a reduced sentence, told the court, “I own the conduct for which I was convicted. I disappointed scores of people and failed in a cataclysmic way.”

You don’t say.

🔥 Haha, the Hill ran an uncharacteristic op-ed last week with the hilarious headline, “It’s Biden v. Inflation — and Biden’s Losing.”

Um. Great headline, but is there really anything that Biden’s NOT losing at? That’s a serious question.

Anyway, the op-ed is a detailed analysis condemning Biden’s poor economic performance, and it’s a good read if you want the receipts. It ends with this warning: “The gross mismanagement of our energy resources – the squandering of our 100-year supplies of oil and natural gas – will fall directly on Biden, as will a stalling economy and continued inflation. Unhappily for Joe, voters place the buck at his door.”

🦸‍♂️ Last week, Governor DeSantis found out that the Special Olympics wasn’t letting unjabbed athletes play at its upcoming annual USA Games event in Orlando, Florida. So the State sent a stinky letter to the Special Olympics demanding $27.5 million dollars in fines for excluding over 5,000 athletes.

It took less than 24 hours. Late Friday, the Special Olympics caved and rescinded its odious mandate. “We don’t want to fight. We want to play,” it confessed in a statement.

Last year, Governor DeSantis was named the “honorary co-chair” of the 2021 Special Olympics, for what it’s worth.

Ron DeSantis @GovRonDeSantis

Special Olympics Int’l was planning on banning Special Olympians from competing based on covid vaccine status—in violation of Florida’s ban on vaccine passports. Thanks to the efforts of our administration, this mandate has been removed so athletes like Isabella can now compete!

Casey DeSantis @FLCaseyDeSantis

This is what standing up for your rights is all about – Isabella will now be able to compete in the Special Olympics because @GovRonDeSantis fought their vaccine mandate (which is illegal in FL) and won.  Isabella’s smile says everything. https://t.co/PkGUL3BQi9

✈️ Israel’s El Al airline has moved its headquarters from New York City to South Florida, for some reason. I wonder what it could be.

Have a magnificent Monday! I’ll see ya’ll back here tomorrow for more.

The CDC Doesn’t Collect Data on Vaxxed Who Contract COVID: ‘A Dearth of Rigorous Data’

The CDC Doesn’t Collect Data on Vaxxed Who Contract COVID: ‘A Dearth of Rigorous Data’

Yes, why would the CDC stop tracking or collecting, reporting this, what seems like a very basic metric. mrossol

Aug. 11, 2021

By Jon Fleetwood 4 hours ago

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stopped monitoring how many vaccinated people contract Covid-19 in May.

QUICK FACTS:
  • A “breakthrough” case is one in which a person who is vaccinated against the coronavirus nevertheless becomes infected with the coronavirus.
  • The CDC stopped publicly reporting “nonsevere” breakthrough cases—cases not resulting in hospitalization or death—as of May 2021, according to The Hill.
  • The CDC is only publicly reporting breakthrough hospitalizations and deaths, “not the total number of cases.“
  • The agency said the change was intended to “help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance,” The Hill reports.
  • An opinion piece from The Guardian argues that because “vaccinated people are experiencing breakthroughs,” it is clear that “we cannot afford to navigate yet another phase of the pandemic without data to guide our way.”

Release the data!! https://t.co/p20QIWCoGP— Ktob (@KateOBoyle2) August 7, 2021

CRITICISM AGAINST THE CDC FOR NOT COLLECTING BREAKTHROUGH CASE DATA:
  • A recent opinion piece from The Guardian says “The US is stumbling in the dark when it comes to breakthrough cases.”
  • The piece claims the because the CDC is not collecting breakthrough case data we don’t know “how many people,” “which populations, are having breakthrough infections,” or “what are the chances they will develop long Covid.”
  • “[T]here’s a dearth of rigorous data on breakthrough cases in the United States,” the piece argues.
  • The piece goes on to urge “This is the kind of information that the public needs in order to understand the risks of daily life during the pandemic, and that scientists need to assess the shifting epidemiology of the virus.”
  • “We should be able to rely on the CDC to collect and share this data.”
  • The piece claims the CDC is not as “thorough” in its surveillance of breakthrough cases as it could be.
  • “The general public must have this information so they understand how and why to protect themselves, even if they are vaccinated.”
  • Moreover, “researchers must have it so that they can understand how the virus is evolving and track any emerging vaccine-resistant variants that may be driving breakthrough cases,” says the piece.

Why has the CDC stopped collecting data on breakthrough Covid cases? https://t.co/BMo9pNAoyk— Asher Wolf (@Asher_Wolf) August 9, 2021
