The US Has Completely Lost Its Mind

Welp, go away for a week and the country completely goes to shit. As if the Covid lockdowns were not bad enough, now we have full-blown rioting around much of the country to deal with.

I am going to make a few comments and then link to some excellent articles. I believe George Floyd was murdered, full stop. Terrible. The cop(s) who did it will serve hard time. Peaceful protest are welcomed…that should be the end of it. Instead the country is in flames. But Floyd’s killing is not the primary reason: we have similar situations every few years with nothing close to this reaction. Some of the killings are legitimate: think Michael Brown who was proven to have viciously attacked a cop. Others were not: think Freddie Grey in Baltimore. So ask yourself: what is different this time? I will tell you: the Covid lockdowns that forced hundreds of millions to shelter in place for months with no direction and often little hope, and threw 30-40 million people out of work almost overnight, many of them blacks. The black unemployment rate was the lowest in history before the lockdown at something like 6%, and now some people are saying it is 50%! Now I think that is an exaggeration, but even 30% is appalling. So there it is, thanks mainly to the political left and the Democrat party. Even some liberals have connected the dots. I cannot prove this, but neither can it be disproved. And corrupt leftist mayors and governors running the cities and states that are primarily to blame know they are guilty. But no, it’s racist cops hunting black men. The far-left media is guilty as well, openly cheering on the destruction until it comes to their neighborhood, as if it is the last chance to get Trump and bring in socialism. And far-left cities and states that have been way too soft on crime for years (think the home of Antifa, Portland) and are hopelessly corrupt have set the stage for mass unrest. So Floyd’s killing is not the primary cause: years of inner city neglect and corruption, weak, feckless leftist politicians, far-left media cheerleading and finally a draconian nationwide shutdown set the stage for a calamity. George Floyd’s killing was simply the match that lit a very large pile of tinder.

Fact: 9-10 unarmed blacks are killed by cops annually, compared to 19-20 whites. A cop is 18.5% more likely to die at the hands of a black criminal. Compare the 200+ total annual killings of blacks by cops to the 7000+ black-on-black murders annually. These are all facts. Privilege exists, white privilege is a lie. Privilege is not based on race. Asians do far better than whites as a whole by many metrics: is there Asian privilege? Well, let me correct that. People of a certain color are currently allowed to loot, rob, vandalize and assault with impunity in certain cities: does that sound like “privilege”? Racism exists but most people are not racist and nobody is born that way. Institutional racism is a lie. Many of these cities are run mainly by blacks…are they racist against their own people? Black lives only matter when a cop kills a black man. It does not apply to black cops killed (which is not a rarity) nor the roughly 300,000 abortions of black babies annually. The movement is not about equity, it is about intimidation and power. What is obvious as well is that white Antifa thugs are behind a lot of the mayhem…and in some neighborhoods the peace-loving law-abiding blacks are fighting back. This is a violent revolt, not a race protest. Minneapolis and NYC are in a race to see which city can commit suicide faster.

Well, here are the articles.

Studies Show Hydroxychloroquine Effective Against Covid

Five studies show the effectiveness of the drug against Covid 19 when used early in outpatient applications. This matches what I have heard from doctors in the field who have treated Covid patients. When used EARLY it is highly effective. But – Orange Man Bad! The left would literally rather have people die than have Trump be right. You wont see this in the far-left lamestream media.

Intelligence Community Corruption

Remember not too long ago when the Democrats, DC swamp creatures and their toadies in the far-left media were screaming “how dare Trump question the honesty and integrity of our intelligence community!” ? Yeah, me too. Where are they now? Turns out, like most things Trump was right.

People need to go to jail, and not Michael Flynn. Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Jim Comey would be a good start, among others.

Left-Wing Media Is Full Of Pathological Liars

But we already knew that. President Trump has not been perfect on Covid, but he’s trying and has probably done a lot more good than any lefty president would have. But that does not stop pathological liars like MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” from stating “everyone saw this coming except Trump”. The problem is, there is ample film of Joe downplaying the whole thing well into February. And what about the fact that Trump’s China travel ban was the first meaningful step anyone outside of China took? Just make stuff up to pander to you insane leftist base, that is all NBC, CNN, NYT ect do anymore. Journalism has really sunk to abysmal lows in this country.

Government’s Statist Urges Taking Advantage of Covid Crisis

As anyone who knows me will tell you I am not a believer in conspiracies. No, I don’t think Covid is a Chinese bio-weapon intentionally released on the world. But in the spirit of “never let a crisis go to waste” many in government on both sides of the aisle, both elected and appointed, are letting their inner authoritarian shine through. Just look at all that has happened in a few short weeks:

Airlines probably shutdown. Restaurants and bars closed, as well as schools. Banning public gatherings of more than 50. Some countries have curfews. What’s next, martial law? Rate cuts to zero, massive liquidity injections, Feds basically guaranteeing all kinds of debt, massive benefit extensions, now they are talking about massive spending programs, giving people cash, etc. They are talking about mortgage guarantees. Supporting everything EXCEPT stocks which will likely continue to crater. I have seen this crash as a historically good buying opportunity and by every measure it should be. Not so sure now. Most indices are off 30-40% and the average stock is down 50%. The bottom could well be another 20-30% down though there were a few positive signs the past three days. At least volatility is falling from historical levels. People will soon demand their retirement money be guaranteed. The leftists and statist Feds have always wanted to get hands on 401k and IRA money.

I do not think this was planned, but the statists and globalists are grabbing as much control as quickly as they can. The response is totally disproportionate to the problem right now. Scare everyone shitless and then we will save you. It’s insane. Projections of millions of deaths if we don’t ‘”do everything” are based on models, not reality. The same type of garbage models told us the Earth would be uninhabitable by now some 20-25 years ago. Junk science. What if we instead end up with tens of thousands of deaths, less than the seasonal flu? We are looking at fundamentally changing our country possibly forever in ways a leftist/Commie like Bernie Sanders could only dream of. Constitution be damned!

Now, there will likely be some positive long-term changes brought about, so it might not all be bad. Globalism is dead. Nationalism is on the rise. Trump was right and the world government globalists like Obama, the Clintons, Soros and the minions of the EU have been discredited. Borders matter and an open border is not just crazy, it is potentially suicide. Illegal immigration may end. Key manufacturing will no longer be outsourced but will be moved back to the US. What will incentivize this to happen is lower taxes and regulatory roll-back, something that Trump has been able to implement. There will be a battle between this and the potential need to pay for more trillions in new welfare programs and heightened concern about public safety, so that bears watching.

Phony leftist vanity projects like “climate change” will go nowhere. The “Green New Deal” is dead. Catastrophic climate change is a massive con anyway. Fossil fuels are now the cheapest in over a decade and have just made “alternatives” uneconomical. A recession/depression is going to cause emissions to plummet. Nobody will worry about climate change except for the hard-core leftists: hard to be concerned about phantom warming when you fear a pandemic, never mind there is evidence that warm weather wipes out the Covid. Other leftist vanity projects like LGBTQ indoctrination will likely take a back seat as well.

Remote learning will take off. This will hurt the educational industrial complex hard, mostly a good thing. Public schools in the US, most of which are failing in their mission, will either reform or die. The public teacher’s union may be hurt badly. Higher education, already reeling from declining enrollment, skyrocketing tuition, providing a poor product and the elite’s admission scandal will see their market hit hard. This is a good thing: higher education, mostly run by leftist elites who are unemployable elsewhere are damaging this country immeasurably with their phony degrees, safe spaces, trigger warning and microaggressions. It is time the entire business needs a great big cleansing.

Far-left media may collapse. The credibility and favorability of this business is already at an all-time low, but media has particularly disgraced itself with its panic-inducing hyperventilating and outright cheerleading for an epidemic, as it might be the one thing that will take down the Bad Orange Man. It isn’t working, other than the panic part. People will grow sick of these swine, and quickly.

“Trump Murders Innocent Tumors”

If President Trump cured cancer that would be the headline at CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPo, ect . You know it would be. The insane left-wing media reaches a new low daily, with comic results. To hear them tell it, Trump, and big bad America are to blame for the downing of a civilian aircraft in Iran by the Iranian military, not Iranian stupidity and incompetence, which is quite impressive. In the leftist’s world, “marginalized people” or failing, backward countries are never to blame for their own actions, because that does not fit with the hierarchy of victimhood. It is always the fault of “the oppressor”.

The left’s hatred of Trump is so dramatic that there is nothing that cannot be blamed on the President. These vile propagandists hate Trump soooo much, they would have blamed the Titanic sinking on him, because, climate change and icebergs, you know. The left is mentally ill. Next…..

Sports Illustrated Picks Radical Activist Lesbian as Sportsperson Of The Year, With Predictable Results

SI gave the nod to the odious Ms. Rapinoe, who was not deserving of it for either her on or off-field exploits. She got it because she hates Trump and is vocal about it. Ms. Rapinoe then proceeded to excoriate SI for their history of racism and sexism. Oh the irony.

Meghan Rapinoe Wins Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year, It Doesn’t Go Well

SI was once a great publication, but those days are over. It was once staffed by giants of sports journalism, but those men are mostly dead or retired. About ten years ago SI slowly began creeping left and has now fully embraced leftist “woke” journalism. The quality of the product has plummeted and the publication is likely dying as a result. People who buy a sports magazine want to read about sports, not LGBT, socialism, fake racism or the SJW crowd. I wonder what M. Rapinoe feels about the obviously sexist Swimsuit Edition?

The Dem “Squad” Helping Party To Commit Self-Immolation

By now you probably know of the Democrat “Squad”: reps AOC, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley. They are far-left America-hating crazy “women of color” – their words in the latter case, not mine who not only hate America but despise Trump and are constantly at war with him. Despite concerns that Trump stepped in it with his non-racist ‘racist’ “go back home” comment…he added “and then come back here”, Trump appears to be winning the war “Yugely” and is causing outright panic among Dems and their media toadies. Trump has not only succeeded in making these far-left radicals the face of the Dem party, he his completely neutered the entire Dem presidential field for the time-being. The “Squad” is openly or privately loathed by many Dems, who seem powerless to stop them from sucking up all the air in the room. The brewing Dem party civil war is delicious….buy some popcorn and enjoy.

House Dems grumble to CNN: We’re frustrated that the Squad keeps making trouble for us
