How They Forget

James Doogue

Yesterday the media announced the US had surpassed 13 million Covid-19 cases. Most were happy to heap blame on President Trump.

I wondered if anyone in the media remember that in the 12 months from April 2009 the US CDC estimate there were 60.8 million cases of Swine Flu in the US under Barrack Obama and Joe Biden.

The Abject Failure of Emissions Trading and Carbon Taxation

Stephen Heins:

Both, a carbon tax and cap and trade, have yet to provide a single good example of working. In fact, the EU ETS has been an abject failure since its inception in 1997 and its implementation in 2009.

Also, CA's trading scheme is just another hidden tax that gets rolled into CA's general revenues or state subsidies; and, RGGI has just increased the cost of electricity without providing any real market signals, plus, it makes New England less competitive than other regions of the U.S.

As for a carbon tax, there are so many questions. Here are some of them:

1. Who is the controlling political body?
2. Who writes the rules?
3. Who determines the price point?
4. What qualifies for the tax?
5. Who decides the definition of "renewables?
6. Where is the mechanism for scientifically measuring and verifying emissions throughout the entire supply chain?
7. Who collects the money?
8. Where does the money go after it is collected?

Then, there is the political science in the noisy world of over 200 nations without a legitimate ruling body, just think of the corruption of the United Nations or World Health Organization or totalitarian rulers and to a lesser extent democracies or parliaments. Then, there is the problem of Carbon free-ridership.

Finally, the actual implementation of technology of all things energy and its integration into the global environment is unsettled and uncertain, especially as 1/3 of the globe still lives in relative energy poverty.

Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting, night and indoor.

Tim adds:

If they get a carbon trading scheme in place they have the backbone of world government. They can flesh it out from there. Anyone remember the E.U. started as the European Oil and Steel Community?

Commisar Fauci wants to cancel Christmas celebrations also

Jack Kemp

Commisar Fauci - or is it Oberstumfurer Fauci?  I keep getting his title mixed up - has said we shouldn't eliminate large Christmas gatherings in a manner similar to his anti-Thanksgiving diktats.

The Blaze reports in an article titled, in part, "Christmas cancelled?" that:

First it was Thanksgiving, now it's Christmas.

According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, if the trajectory of coronavirus cases continues to surge, then Americans should skip their Christmas celebrations this year...

"If the surge takes a turn of continuing to go up and you have the sustained greater than 100,000 infections a day and 1,300 deaths per day and the count keeps going up and up ... I don't see it being any different during the Christmas and New Year's holidays than during Thanksgiving," Fauci told USA Today.


Notice Fauci said nothing about Kwanzaa, nor do I recall him saying anything about the Muslim holiday and evening feat gatherings Eid last spring.

All Votes for Biden!

Cornelius Carroll forwards this:

"There are landslides and then there are landslides. There are lopsided votes and then there are lopsided votes. There are egregious examples of vote manipulation and then there are really egregious examples of vote manipulation. What surfaced during hearings in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on November 25, 2020 may set the standard for electoral outrageousness.

An expert testifying to the Pennsylvania Senate flagged a batch of ballots that recorded some 570,000 votes for Joe Biden and only 3,200 for Donald Trump."

Pennsylvania Bombshell: Biden 99.4 Percent vs. Trump 0.6 Percent

Tim adds:

That's Fidel Castro territory. Actually, even most Bolshevik countries don't have lopsided votes of that nature.

The article continues:

This bombshell was dropped last Wednesday at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg. The November 25 hearings, which began at 12:30 p.m. and ran or nearly four hours, were convened at the request of Senator oug Mastriano  and York counties). It was sponsored by the Senate Majority Policy Committee, chaired by Sen. David Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill). Mastriano has called what happened "unacceptable,” and has called for the resignation of Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar.

This particular gem was provided by Ret. Col. Phil Waldren, a former combat officer with a background in Army information and electronic warfare. Waldren, who testified along with Rudy Giuliani’s team, brought to the hearing his considerable expertise in analysis of election-data fraud. After Waldren presented his material, the chair opened the floor for questions. Rudy Giuliani went first, asking Waldren to clarify what his analytics team means when they talk about "spike anomalies” in voting patterns. These, as Waldren defines them, are "events where a numerical amount of votes are processed in a time period that is not feasible or mechanically possible under normal circumstances.” Waldren showed a chart with a shocking example of an apparent massive dump of votes for Joe Biden. Giuliani pressed Waldren for clarification regarding this unbelievable "Biden injection of votes.” Here’s the exchange:

Waldren: At the very beginning of the chart, where there’s a circle that says "On Election Day,” what that indicates is there’s a spike in loaded votes. 337,000-plus-or-minus-some votes that were added in there in one big batch. So that was an anomaly in the reporting. Normally you would expect to see a smooth curve going up, not any big spikes, that’s kind of what Greg was talking about, the anomalies of loading and uploading those votes. So that big spike that occurs there is a prime indicator of fraudulent voting.

Giuliani: And that’s [a total of] 604,000 votes in 90 minutes, is that right?

Waldren: Correct, this is [shows chart] 337,000 votes in that period of time.

Giuliani: And when you look at this entire curve, with all these spikes, can you calculate how much of a vote that accounted for for Biden, and how much for Trump?

Waldren: Close to 600,000. I think our figures were about 570-some-odd-thousand that all those spikes represent overtime.

Giuliani: For Biden?

Waldren: Correct.

Giuliani: And how much for Trump?

Waldren: I think it was a little over 3,200.

That’s roughly 570,000 votes for Biden and 3,200 for Trump. Biden scooped up this enormous batch by 99.4%. Incredible. Impossible. Scandalous.

The Democrats got greedy with their vote theft. This SHOULD come home  to bite them in the posterior. I somehow doubt it will though.

Australian News Thinks Trump Should be Impeached for Covid

James Doogue:

The ABC Thinks Trump Should Be Impeached For Covid-19 Handling

Nobody at the ABC wanted to take credit for this outrageous article suggesting President Donald Trump should be impeached and charged over his handling of Covid-19 in the US.. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-29/chance-president-donald-trump-could-be-impeached-over-covid-us/12910812

The article is flawed in so many ways. The most significant is it fails to recognise where the US states are fairly autonomous in how they handle these matters, just like in Australia.

You wouldn't blame our Prime Minister Scott Morrison for Premier Dan Andrew's decision not to use the military to provide security for hotel quarantine - which lead to the death of 800 people. Nor can President Trump be blamed for New York's Governor Cuomo's decision to move the elderly out of hospitals and place them in inadequately prepared aged care facilities where thousands of people died.

Trump closed the international borders to most non-residents, provided ventilators and personal protective equipment to States where they had failed to have stick-piles. Trump set up a Covid-19 task force, and implemented 'Operation Warp Speed', resulting in the development of Covid-19 vaccines in an unprecedented timeframe.

The ABC want us to forget all that, and just impeach Trump for all US Covid-19 infections and deaths,. So surely the ABC will also suggest the leaders of the 12 countries which have a higher Covid-19 death rate than the US be impeached
or arrested? (See table below)

If they would impeach Donald Trump because 13.6 million people in the US have been infected by Covid-19, then surely the ABC would be recommending former President Barack Obama, and his Vice President Joe Biden face criminal charges for allowing the Swine Flu to spread in the US?

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases, with 274,304 hospitalizations in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/2009-h1n1-pandemic.html

The ABC should also demand we seek some sort of reparation from China? After all, China let the virus out of a lab or wet market. Then they destroyed the evidence, lied about transmissibility, and refused to let IS CDC and other experts into China to assess the virus threat. China also banned travel into or out of Wuhan, while still allowing flights with infected people to depart Wuhan for overseas destinations.

Seriously, when will the ABC stop this Trump hatred and start a ring like a real news service?

Tim adds:

What a bunch of dopes! The U.S. Constitution only allows impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors" and there is no way anything the President has done can be interpreted as a high crime or misdemeanor. One could argue (incorrectly) that Trump mishandled the issue, but not that he committed any sort of crime. But that is how the Left rolls these days; criminalizing policy differences. Disgraceful!

Reichstag Fire Burns Venezuelan Voting Machines

Timothy Birdnow

A huge fire burned up most of Venezuela's voting machines.

From the BBC article:[link]

She did not say if parliamentary elections due later this year could be affected by the loss of the machines.

She also asked prosecutors to investigate the cause of the fire.

The fire broke out in the 6,000 sq m (65,000 sq ft) warehouse in Mariche, east of Caracas, on Saturday.

"Burnt in this fire were 582 computers belonging to the civil registry, 49,408 voting machines, 400 electronic ballots," Ms Lucena said in a news conference on Sunday.

Maduro needs to take lessons from Joe Biden and the Democrats. Maybe he can ask for some of the machines that serves Mr. Biden so well?

This should sound familiar:

Recent elections in Venezuela have been beset by allegations of fraud. The company that provided the voting system in the 2017 election for the constituent assembly said that turnout figures had been inflated by one million, an allegation the CNE denied.

There were also allegations of vote-rigging in the 2018 presidential election in which incumbent President Nicolás Maduro won another six years in power.

Bear in mind Maduro used the Dominion voting machines that were employed against Donald Trump by Democrats.

Does this sound like a Reichstag fire to anyone? It seems entirely too convenient.

If Liberal Policies on Wuhan Worked...

This observation comes from Russell P. Green:

Yes, with all these "alleged” safety measures, Democrat governors are still getting the Wuhan virus. Maybe Americans should step back and question if we are being told the truth about what actually helps prevent the virus and what is just a "placebo” measure that merely infringes on our individual freedoms.

Media Madness

James Doogue

It's not just crazy lefties in the streets. This has been the reaction of the mainstream media and big tech, social media platforms.

From election day 2016, the headlines were full of claims Trump colluded with the Russians. I recall the word 'bombshell' being used in relation to 'breaking news' about the claims Trump colluded with Russia.

At no time did I see or hear newsreaders, journalists or commentators add the words 'baseless claims' when talking about alleged collusion with Russia. At no time did I see Facebook, Twitter or YouTube censor articles, posts or videos pushing the Russia Collusion claims.

We had 4 years of lefties questioning the legitimacy of the Trump presidency.

Now there are multiple sources of evidence of widespread irregularities in the votes, inexplicable unless fraud is assumed, mainstream media aren't covering it, or they are pushing the 'baseless claims' line.

Social media is vigoressly blocking or censoring posts and shares which include claims of voter fraud.

The double standards are plain to see. Our media used to try to hide their left wing bias, now they don't bother.


Tim adds:

Interestingly this is a worldwide phenomenon. While some overseas outlets are more fair, most of them toe the line of the American media about Trump and this election. The media is the true colluder.

Newest Cardinal Won't Withhold Communion from Biden

Timothy Birdnow

The newest Catholic Cardinal - Wilton Gregory - is a liberal activist who is saying he will not deny Joe Biden Holy Communion if the matter presents itself.

According to Life News:

Gregory said he hopes to develop a good relationship with Biden to discuss "areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree.”

He said it is normal for Catholics to have disagreements; they are part of "being a family, a family of faith. The difficulty is too many people want to throw out of the family of faith people with whom they have disagreements.”

But many American Catholic leaders are wrestling with how to work with Biden when his views on abortion, family and religious freedom are so contrary to Christianity and basic human rights.

Last week, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops launched a new committee to explore how to work with a pro-abortion Biden administration. They criticized Biden for creating confusion among Catholics by touting both his faith and the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

Biden and his vice presidential running mate Kamala Harris want to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions and force taxpayers to pay for them. They also oppose religious freedom protections for Catholic charities and other employers, andHarris has been accused of anti-Catholic bigotry. She also prosecuted pro-life undercover journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade.

That's Wilton Gregory, who was the bishop of the Belleville Illinois diocese. He was despised there and they pretty much ran him out of town. His promotion was a face-saving way to get him out of Belleville. Now he's going to help choose the next Pope. He was a protege' of Chicago's Cardinal Bernardine, the notoriously pro-homosexual Bishop. While Gregory was sent to Belleville to clean up the pedophilia mess, he made a lot of enemies with his liberalism.

Later, as Archbishop of Washington D.C. he condemned President Trump for visiting the National Shrine and has attacked both Trump and the Knights of Columbus. He supports Black Lives Matter. He wears African garb even though he's from Chicago.

The Pope is trying to appease the BLM terrorist thugs with this appointment.

This man will now help elect Francis' successor. In other words, Francis is "packing the court" or at least trying to put people in place to vote for a liberal successor after he is gone.

Pope Francis has done horrible damage to the bark of St. Peter. Catholicism is going to pay dearly for his misanthropic leadership.

Life on Venus Unlikely After All

Timothy Birdnow

A short while back there was some evidence life may be floating in the clouds of Venus. Looks like that hypothesis has been shot down. https://science.sciencemag.org/content/370/6520/1021

Here is the summary:

"In September, researchers reported discovering signs of phosphine—a toxic compound that on Earth is made in significant amounts only by microbes and chemists—in radio emissions from Venus's atmosphere. The unexpected detection could point to a microbial biosphere floating in the venusian clouds. But those results have since come under scrutiny, including from the original discovery team, which, citing a calibration error in one telescope it used, has downgraded the strength of its claim. Although the proponents remain confident of a phosphine detection, other astronomers have suggested that sulfur dioxide, which makes up most clouds on Venus, could have caused a similar absorption, among other critiques. Further observations next year will likely be needed to resolve the debate."

Be it Ever so Crumbly there's No Place Like Rome

Timothy Birdnow

Ever wonder why Roman structures have lasted so long while our own crumble away after a few years? They used concrete, same as do we. But ours are gone in no time while theirs are still around.

The answer; they used seawater.

From the article:

"Now, scientists have finally figured out why: a special ingredient that makes the cement grow stronger—not weaker—over time. Scientists began their search with an ancient recipe for mortar, laid down by Roman engineer Marcus Vitruvius in 30 B.C.E. It called for a concoction of volcanic ash, lime, and seawater, mixed together with volcanic rocks and spread into wooden molds that were then immersed in more sea water. History contains many references to the durability of Roman concrete, including this cryptic note written in 79 B.C.E., describing concrete exposed to seawater as: "a single stone mass, impregnable to the waves and everyday stronger.” What did it mean? To find out, the researchers studied drilled cores of a Roman harbor from Pozzuoli Baynear Naples, Italy. When they analyzed it, they found that the seawater had dissolved components of the volcanic ash, allowing new binding minerals to grow. Within a decade, a very rare hydrothermal mineral called aluminum tobermorite (Al-tobermorite) had formed in the concrete. Al-tobermorite, long known to give Roman concrete its strength,it reacts with volcanic ash and crystals to form Al-tobermorite and a porous mineral called phillipsite, they write today in American Mineralogist. So will you be seeing stronger piers and breakwaters anytime soon? Because both minerals take centuries to strengthen concrete, modern scientists are still working on recreating a modern version of Roman cement.
can be made in the lab, but it’s very difficult to incorporate it in concrete. But the researchers found that when seawater percolates through a cement matrix,"

Why do they need to do this if the "science" is on their side? Open debate is the hallmark of true science. I've noticed it is becoming harder and harder to find contrary evidence online; it used to be there but now when I debate the Covidiots I can't find the info anymore.

Mysterious Explosions and Helicopter Flights

Timothy Birdnow

Last night there was an explosion.

We've been hearing what sounded like gunfire on occasion and even some modest explosion over the last few weeks. My neck of South St. Louis is pretty tame, and there is no good reason for this. I have been quite curious about the nature of these loud bangs, but last night took the cake; the windows rattled and car alarms were set off up and down the block. It was LOUD! A friend who lived in Oklahoma City described the blast from the Alfred P. Murrah building as being similar. But there were no sirens.

Now, I live in Little Bosnia, and the Bosnians simply love their fireworks. They shoot them off all summer and again around New Year and shoot a few off all year long. I think they are the source of the gunshots as well. I guess it reminds them of the old country and the war. At any rate, this was nothing like that (nor have the other booms I've been hearing lately.) This sounded like a serious explosion.

So what gives?

A Google search turned up nothing.

This sort of thing has been reported as happening in major cities across the United States in recent years.  They have happened in Cleveland in Brockton Ma.  and other places. as well.

There have been some in the past few years as well in Alhambra Ca. for example.  and Flint, Michigan.

There were a lot of stories online about this phenomenon a while back. They seem to have been largely tossed down the memory hole at Google. Curiouser and curiouser.

So what was that giant boom last night? There were no sirens, so it was not likely a gas explosion in a house.

Is the Department of Homeland Security running drills? The Army? I also heard a helicopter earlier flying overhead in what appeared to be a search pattern.

Are they prepping for a popular uprising?

Something is going on. Any ideas?
