"Big Mistake" (opens in separate window)

we’re all unvaxxed

friday, march 17th, 2023

Mandates and the suppression of free speech were not at all well-grounded enough to justify the state’s response.

No one on the planet is vaccinated against COVID.

No one.

Those who received a shot (or two or three or four) are not vaccinated against COVID in the traditional – and accurate – sense of the word.

Polio vaccine – you won’t get polio.

Tetanus vaccine – you won’t get tetanus.

COVID vaccine – you can get – and spread – COVID. In other words, not to be crass but if the polio vaccine worked like the COVID vaccine – not preventing, just lessening the severity – millions of people would be walking around with a limp.

So exactly why were people fired, mocked, ostracized, restricted, segregated, shamed, blamed, and named for being exactly like everyone else –- unvaccinated against COVID? The sad thing is that the older a person gets, the wiser they become, and then they die with all that knowledge.

Looking specifically at the particularly severe California pandemic regulations, the vaccine mandates alone cost thousands their jobs, created a political firestorm, and contributed to school closures that decimated the educational achievement and the social development of millions of children.

And what did this accomplish? Not very much, if anything at all.

The pandemic response also placed medical professionals in the crosshairs, with the passage of a bill (now on hold) that placed a doctor’s license at risk if they spread COVID “misinformation” to a patient. Misinformation like this, it seems – if you go to this October, 2021 news item you will find the phrase “And overwhelmingly, workers have accepted and even embraced the science showing vaccines protect not only you but those around you.”

Except, when you click on this CDC link now you will find no mention of the shot protecting “those around you,” as claimed on the same page in late 2021.

Exactly how doctors, let alone everyone else, are expected to be able to predict what the COVID “guidance” will be tomorrow is impossible. Also in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s highly touted 2021 plan to add a COVID shot to the list of regular vaccines children must have to attend school was very quietly shelved just a few weeks ago.

It should also be noted that the most heavily (by percentage) “vaccinated” age group –- 50 and up –- had a COVID death rate of about 3% of cases; below 50 –- which generally had a lower vaccination rate –- the death rate was one-tenth of 1%.

That is not to say the shot did not help stave of the most dire health consequences for those who got it, but it is to say that mandates and the suppression of free speech were not at all well-grounded enough to justify the state’s response.

The COVID shot(s) mandated by and at nearly level of society does not –- as it was proclaimed to do – protect against COVID and it does not prevent someone from passing COVID on to someone else. Then why call it a vaccine?

While the data seems to be shifting on an unnervingly regular basis, it does appear that those who had the shot and contracted COVID anyway have benefited from it by suffering less severely from the virus. It is also possible that another reason for at least part of this effect could be that – prior to the availability of the shot – that COVID had run through much of the population that was more likely to suffer the most dire consequences.

So the shot was more of a prophylactic treatment – take this in case you get sick later – rather than a preventative measure. And while upon its release it was touted as an actual vaccine, it was known at the time that that was not true.

This very simple fact –- a statement that cannot be truthfully denied by Dr. Anthony Fauci, the CDC, Pfizer, etc. –- turns on its head almost every pandemic-related action taken and statement made by the experts and government agencies who rolled out the draconian response.

As a Pfizer exec said, the shot was not even tested to see if it would prevent transmission, though to this day, if you Google “Pfizer vaccine doesn’t prevent covid” you will see “fact check” after “fact check” saying it’s not quiiite true.

When the shot appeared –- and once Trump was out of the way so he couldn’t take credit for it –- it was shouted from the rooftops that this was the beginning of the end, the country can soon get back to normal once everyone has been vaccinated.

That was an intentional lie made to placate and string along a very antsy public. That pandemic extension process, if you will, was continued as Fauci kept upping the “herd immunity” rate from 75% to 80% to etc. It was continued by –- for the first time ever when a society confronted a virus – the purposeful discounting of natural immunity. It was continued as schools and planes and buses and offices continued required masking policies. It was continued as the need for boosters was revealed.

Each of those actions do two things –- one, they keep the power accrued during the pandemic in the same hands and, two, they, ironically, utterly substantiate the fact that the shot was not a vaccine because none of those actions would have been required if the COVID shot was an actual vaccine.

Tetanus boosters are not scheduled every four months, yellow fever vaccine last forever and is only recommended if a person is going to be traveling to a place where it still exists, polio is an awful memory of the past.

COVID is still around and, most likely, will be forever, as will the growing list of health problems associated with the shot itself.

Even pre-vaccine, Fauci was taking the panic-fueling “Everyone is at risk!!!” as he took when AIDS emerged. He knew there were high-risk groups but he purposefully blurred those lines as he did with COVID. Very early on, it was clear that the elderly – especially those living in a group setting like a nursing home – and the already unhealthy were at the greatest risk. Not only was the risk greater, the risk was greater by a geometric progression; just like a Richter scale earthquake of two is 10 times more intense than a one and a three is 100 times greater than a two, the older you got the risk increased exponentially.

Exactly why Fauci pressed the “everyone is at equal risk” button twice when he knew it was not correct is something only he knows for sure, but it almost assuredly is related to his being a bureaucrat first and doctor second – a one size fits all panic is much easier to sell and by its nature accrues more funding and power, both the default setting and the raison d’etre of every member of every nomenklatura ever.

From two weeks to stop the spread to get a not-vaccine shot every four months, the pandemic response has been full of lies and suffering for the general public and money and power for the autocrats and oligarchs and their clerisy.

Masks made no difference, trillions of dollars were vaporized or stolen or gouged or monopolized, children’s educational and social development set back years, friendships severed, trust in the very institutions that need to be trusted for a society to prosper destroyed, and all for what? The promise there would be an end, a solution, a return to normalcy when safe, tested, trustworthy vaccine was ready.

We were waiting for a vaccine that worked like other vaccines do.

We’re still waiting.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 9a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made coffee and breakfast, took a Tylenol Extra Strength for various pains, had a couple smokes in the semi-cool garage and checked the leftover errands list. It was a cold 37°, and forecast to hit 42° with mild rain all day. Thankfully, the snow forecast had abated. I tuned into the "Chris Plante Show", from 9-12, had breakfast and relaxed with some Hawaiian Kona 'Volcanic Estate' Coffee.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind. At the very least.

I worked on my 2022 Taxes thru the morning, made an app't with my long-time CPA for next Tuesday 1pm, and I'll finally finish-up all the requisite paperwork over the weekend, after waiting for so many Wells Fargo electronic corrected/revised/amended 1099 files. I hate this tax time of year. I'd rather get an icewater enema. (Just kidding!)

I drove to the nearby Rite Aid Pharmacy in the snow, and returned home in the rain; now it's just freezing rain/sleet, as temps are now dropping back into the mid-30s. Rite Aid's still having staffing and personnel problems, and is slow as "molasses in January". Sherry stopped by after working at her Daughter's (Hollie) her Daughter's Virtue Crafts Shop, in nearby Hallam, to visit and exchange hugs and kisses, for 2hrs, and left at 6p. It was still snowing/sleeting/raining, but nothing sticking to any surfaces. I had Breaded & Almond-Crusted Flounder Filet, for dinner, watched the news hour (No, I don't like Brett Baier; he's an asshole), 2 Fox Opinion Guys -- Watters & Carlson -- and more episodes of prior "Gold Rush" seasons. Lights out at 12:30a.

Nowhere to go, nothing to do, and no one to do it with.

I slept-in until 9:15a on Saturday, a cold 35°, partly sunny but with threatening clouds and snow flurries. I upped the heat, made Kona Coffee as usual, had a few smokes in the warming garage, and scanned the news and weather. I tuned into the "Chris Stigall Show" Podcasts to catch-up on a few shows from last week. I turned the clocks ahead, at 1p, for tomorrow's stupid DST crap, except for my 1978 Rolex GMT Master w/ Black Onyx, in Stainless and office-sunroom clock. WTH. Snow cells were blowing thru, and the cloud cover got heavy. It was a nice morning. Heh.

I had paperwork to finish-up for next Tuesday's CPA mtg, for my 2002 Income Taxes -- damn, I hate that phrase -- and finalized some medical expense details. I finally canceled my old, unused PNC VISA CC -- with a $30,000 credit limit -- after not using it for 5yrs, since moving everything to Wells Fargo in 2018. Now, I just have to stop by the local branch, close out the checking acct, and take the few buck in it and buy some vino. Done deal.

"Last year, the U.S. Senate surprised everyone and unanimously passed the Sunshine Protection Act, which would have kept the country permanently on daylight savings time. Not many bills get the thumbs up from every senate member, so there was a sense that switching clocks twice a year had met its final Waterloo. But then the measure went to the House, where it died. So here we are again, ready to do the time change tango tomorrow, March 12, leaving many to wonder if the business of clock changing will ever come to an end." Article: "Clocks: Spring Forward and Never Fall Back Again?". Idiots, morons and scumbags.

The day went fast, I had dinner, watched TV and called it a day at 1A (really midnight).

Kona Coffee... Because Murder Is Wrong.

I slept-in until 9:30a on Sunday morning, a cloudy and cold 28°, and I could have slept 2-3 more hours. I hate switching-over to DST and then back to ET, 21x a year. LEAVE IT AT DST AND BE DONE WITH IT! I could get elected to US Congress on that issue alone. Anyway, I turned-up the heat, made Kona Coffee, had some smokes, and checked the news and weather on my desktop. I made 3 carafes of Kona Coffee, to help me wake-up, before heading upstairs for my morning shower, at 11:30a. It's going to take a few days for my body's Circadian Rythmn to adjust.

I drove over to the nearby Rite Aid Pharmacy, to p/u a couple Rxs, and I could feel the temps dropping, and "smell" the coming snow. The snowstorm was just to our west, and would impact the York area within a couple hours. I got the garbage & recycle bin ready, and put them at the front lawn's curb, despite the CHCA Ass'n not wanting it all to go out until dark. I'll probably bring-in the Jeep if the snow gets heavy. F•ck the CHCA directive. And ShitBag Fauci, the criminal Covid-19 liar, continues to lie on TV, as he's done for 40+ years. How much kool-aid does one have to drink to believe anything this man says?

After checking the evolving AccuWeather maps for the coming snow, I tuned into the latest Chris Stigall Show Podcasts, until the TRASHCAR Cup Race came on at 3:30p (really 2:30). Heh. At 6p, my good friend and neighbor, Jayme, called and invited me over to party and drink 8% (alcohol) Blood Orange Can Drinks, We had a good time, but I fell on the garage's concrete floor, and injured my left hip. I took some aspirin and went to bed early.

Alcohol... because no great novel ever started with someone eating a salad.

Up at 9:30a on Monday, I was hurting from last night's fall, took 2 50mg Tramadol and an 81mg aspirin, checked the weather -- cloudy and 39° with light snow in the forecast -- and news, and limped around the condo to get something to eat, coffee, and get a quick errand done. I used CBD Ointment Level 4 on the hurting area, and that helped a little. I checked the day's to-do list. After a small breakfast, I got ready for the day, called Sherry to reschedule our today's walk -- I wouldn't get very far, and Sherry was having some sinus problems -- and left for the cleaners, down south in Red Lion. Back home by 12noon, I took another 50mg Tramadol, fired-up the Bonehead Bongino Talk Program on WMAL/DC, and rested on the LR couch.

It was a "Blah Day", with my system still getting used to the Spring time change, along with the dreary weather outside. I slept for an hour, but had too much on my mind for tomorrow's CPA/ Income Tax meeting. Plus, Mt Rose Cemetery's Amy called with an OK to go ahead with Becky's and my proposed outdoor hardscaping (sidewalk) and landscaping, outside the Chapel of Memories Mausoleum. I called Dave from River Rock Landscaping to get on his company's Sept-Oct Work List, with details and meetings to come.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

We're headed into a major depression, since 2 major banks just failed over the weekend: Signature Federal Bank and Silicon Valley Bank. Lunch Bucket Joey Bidet&Co says "Everything will be alright". Bullshit; get ready for a Depression, probably not yet on a par with 1929, but when trucks stop running, banks and ATMs disappear, and the US Gov't puts us all of CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) with a single "card" -- no more currency -- it'll happen. Cash will become illegal. Chew on that. Remember my words: it's coming and all too soon enough. I mentioned this 3-4yrs ago, but I though it'd gone away, but South Dakota has it right in the governor's face. It's only beginning, for real. So, "QE Extra Lite" is being put in place, and it's all bullshit.

I have a CPA app't on Tuesday, after my cleaning lady is in, a busy afternoon on Wednesday doing some moving for Sis, and a walk at the colossal Galleria on Thursday, and Friday is clear, so far. I laid back down on the LR couch and woke-up at 6p. My hip felt much better. I had a light dinner, and caught-up on the "Chris Plante Show" Podcast, from the morning. I got ***Wind Advisory Warning*** for Tuesday and Wednesday, for mostly "small craft", which we don't around here; they're mostly down at the Chesapeake Bay, MD. And for "tall profile trucks", which we do have here.

After dinner, I watched some news and opinion of Fox News, "Gold Rush" episodes, and bagged it for the night at 11:30p. My cleaning lady's in at 8:30a, tomorrow.

The alarm woke me at 6a, to a cold 32° Zero Dark Thirty, upped the heat, made coffee, had a couple of smokes, and had less hip pain from Sunday's fall in the garage. It took me a while to get going, but I finally did. The early "Chris Stigall Show" had a sub on, so I listened to yesterday's podcast of the "CP Show". JoAnne would be here by 8:30, and I had a job in the garage: opening the top-loading freezer's motor's air-intake panel, and cleaning it out. I also had a 1p app't at my CPA's to drop-off Sis' paperwork and have a short meeting with my CPA, about mine. I had a light breakfast and got ready for the day.

I scanned the weather and news; the Northeast was getting hammered by a huge Nor'Easter storm, moving north. Just missed us by a few miles to the east. Hey, it's still Winter! With it getting light at 6:15a now, I'm finally adjusting to it. It's taken 3 days for my Circadian Rythmn to acclimate itself. The ***Wind Advisory Warning*** was still in effect, but the Nor-Easter was moving north of us, and into New England. Missed us almost completely. I took the electric top-loading freezer's motor's cover plate off to clean it -- haven't ever done that in 33yrs -- but it was perfectly clean, despite being in the same place in the garage, for all that time. I DO keep my garage clean, but it looked like it did, the day I installed it.

JoAnne finished cleaning around 11:30a, so I spent some time going thru my Tax Folder to make sure I had all documents and the 2022 Tax Worksheet was completely filled-out. I left at 12:30p for my 1p CPA's app't, south in Dallastown. It was a 154min meeting, and I stopped at FIVE GUYS BURGERS on the way home, and got a couple Dbl-Cheeseburgers w/ Grilled Onions and Mushrooms, and a large Fry. Best fries anywhere. After unpacking and a late lunch, I fell asleep on the LR couch for 2hrs. We had 45-60mpoh wind, all day, and into the night, as the Nor'Easter moved-up the coast, and it'll continue into tomorrow. BFD.

After dinner, I caught the news on Fox, watched the 2 Fox Opinion Guys, and switched over to "Gold Rush" until midnight. Lights out.

Up at 9:30a on Wednesday -- The Ides of March -- it was a beautiful, sunny, very windy 36° start to the day. No wind; all the Nor'Easter had passed and dumped 3ft of snow on New England. I upped the heat, made coffee, and checked the news and weather. After a Croissant for breakfast, I loaded-up the Jeep to get some moving done this afternoon.

The 2 US Bank failures are now spreading to Europe, and Credit Suisse Bank is tottering. I believe this Spring and Summer, that we will see a near-total collapse of the world's banking system, so I'm taking-out more cash from my WF accounts. More than several other US Banks -- First Republic, Zions Bancorp, Comerica, Intrust Financial, UMB Financial and Western Alliance -- aren't doing so well, either. In fact, they're crashing. Even larger US Banks -- Wells Fargo declined more than 5%, while Citigroup shares were down nearly 5%. Bank of America sank more than 4%. Goldman Sachs fell nearly 4% -- are not doing well. Needless to say, the Markets took another major dump.

Lots of things going on today, so I'm busy with all of it. But I check the Markets, every 1-2hrs. The moving done for my Sis, I reorganized some things at my condo, and JoAnne will help me next week with some cleaning. High for the day was only 48°, but with the 35-45mph winds, it felt much colder. I snacked on large Red Seedless Grapes. all afternoon, and my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) went thru the roof. Screw it.

I listened to the "CP Show" Podcast until 6p, watched Fox News, where the worldwide bank crashes were leading the news; Credit Suisse leading the way. I'm planning on visiting my local WF branch, to withdraw a few thousand bucks, for future usage, as I see fit. An Economic Depression is coming -- not on 1929's scale -- and will be even worse in 2024.

After dinner, I watched Fox News to get updated on the bank failures, watched "Watters" and "Carlson", and switched to the new episode of "American Pickers" until 11p. Good night, Irene.

Up at 8a on Thursday, a cloudy, cold 33° start to the day. It would have been a nice day to sleep-in until 10-11a, but I had some things to get done. I tuned into the "CP Show", from 9-12, made-up my list of WF Bank substantial withdrawal money, in certain denominations, and just relaxed; I put-off a few errands until tomorrow. I'm meeting Sherry at 1p, at the vast York Galleria Mall. From my office-sunroom's 3 massive 4ft x 9ft windows, I can see a couple of Japanese Okame Cherries in bloom. All the other shrubs' and trees' buds are swelling, ready-to-open in a few weeks, or maybe sooner.

I left at 12:30p, to get 2 quick errands done, and meet Sherry. Despite my left hip pain from Sunday evening's fall on the garage's concrete floor, we managed to walk almost 1½ miles, and the went back to my condo to relax and talk. After lots of hugs and kisses, she left around 5:30, to get some quick shopping done, and I took a 2hr snooze on the LR couch, with all my errands done until tomorrow. I was very tired from the pain, used Tramadol, Flexoril and Valium to lessen it. After dinner, I skipped Watters and Carlson, watched a new "Gold Rush" episode, did some paperwork and unplugged at 11p. Busy day tomorrow.

Tomorrow does start a new week here in the "Journal", and except for a Monday app't with a new Wellspan Cardiologist, the week is clear, so far. Let's do some serious walking, Sherry.

Tucker Pulled His Punches.

I watched what I thought was a serious journalist blow the first night of the supposed big J6 tape release. But I couldn't help noticing that  he picked stuff we already knew -- and he was WEAK. 

Where was the video of fed provocateurs and violence coordinators?

Capitol Police flash bang and rubber bullet/baton attacks on an unarmed citizen crowd?

The deceptions about the barricades?

What was so hard about demonstrating to the public that the J6 was a Reichstag Fire scam?

Sure, he said the J6 committee lied, but he pulled his punches even on the opening night and from there the week went downhill fast and he purposely got weaker and weaker.  Before the week was done, he opened his show about the International Women's Day award?  He didn't care -- he was just going through the motions.

Tucker is a well-paid and talented person but his affection for his job made him a yellow belly coward just like the FBI/DOJ/deep state automatons who do what they are told.  Tucker has access to the Capitol Police brutality, the FBI and dog provocateurs, and he shows us the shaman again--and the week is empty of the important stuff that Jim Hoft discusses here.  I would add  that Hoft could modify his criticism to say that Tucker didn't just screw up on Monday--he screwed up the rest of the week.

His performance was a disgrace. He had the most important journalistic job of his and our lifetimes and he blew it.  He will continue to blow it and McCarthy won't release the videos to the general public -- this will be a deep state win.

The tragedy is the police state judicial gulag Stalinesque situation we now see solidifying with a growing list of political prisoners convicted by a Kafkaesque judicial system supervised by evil hack judges.

Tucker has had 4 nights to put this stuff up and he pussyfoots around the video trove like he doesn't want to offend the Democrats or the FBI/DOJ/Capitol Police by showing the Reichstag Fire scenario that was created.  He is on a short Murdoch leash.

Now he has slow walked this and the people who watched and waited for him to do a good job can shake their heads--Tucker and the Fox Network are afraid of the deep state and the power of the socialist/Democrat oligarchy.

[JS: As much as Tucker revealed, without commentary, last week, it wasn't enough and it was noticeably "muted". Chuck Schumer threatened Rupert Murdoch, and he complied like a good deep-stater. Murdoch pulled the plug on Tucker. Our ideas terrify the left, and their behavior proves it. We are watching in real time, the destruction of the First Amendment. This Tucker Carlson's J6 Videos Were A Missed Opportunity article, is a good read, if you haven't already. This was all about getting us MAGA People to disassociate oursaelves with "Bad Donald Trump". Nothing less. What about Ray Epps and the scaffold commander guy? What about the big bad bomber at the DNC and GOP party offices who’s right on tape? What about BLM and Antifa plants getting off buses? FED! FED! FED! It was partly a FED-SURRECTION!]

The Seven Best Doctors.

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In some others' eyes, my life is the epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, my wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment, lying on my bed and recalling my life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in have paled and become meaningless in the face of my death.

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone bear your sickness for you. Material things lost can be found or replaced. But there is one thing that can never be found when it's lost - Life. Whichever stage in life you are in right now, with time, you will face the day when the curtain comes down. Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well and cherish others. As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we realize that a $300 or a $30 watch both tell the same time. You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down - you go down with it.

Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness! Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things and not the price. Eat your food as your medicine, otherwise you have to eat medicine as your food. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage! The six best doctors in the world are: Jesus Christ, rest, exercise, diet, self-confidence, family and friends. Maintain them in all stages and enjoy a healthy life.

It's 6AM on Sunday March 12th, and I Want To Tell You That I Hate Daylight Savings Time.

I specifically didn't put the commas in the date in the headline because I am angry. I am angry that Daylight Savings Time is still a thing.

Daylight Savings Time is stupid and useless as teats on a boar. It is 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 12th, and I have risen from my slumber to tell all of you how much I hate it.

"Wow, Edward, you work for a real slave driver, making you write articles at 6 in the morning on a Sunday, sheesh," you say. No no no, incorrect, dear reader. I got up early to write articles on a Sunday for the love of the game – and to spite Daylight Savings Time. It will not beat me; I will beat it. I punch it in its stupid face. I will take my one less hour of sleep like a warrior, and I will say, "How about one more?" and I will laugh.

It's not even the one less hour of sleep that irks me so badly ... it's the uselessness of the whole thing, and the fact that we have to do it just because the yokels in the government say we have to.

I am far from the only one who hates DST. Two-thirds of Americans want it shot behind the ear and buried in a corn field.

The 17% who said "No, I would not," are clearly sociopaths and I would like to fight them right now. And the ones who said "Not sure" probably don't even know what it is because their moms still change their clocks for them and they don't even notice. vAnd listen: The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (uhh, hello, sounds like they know a thing or two about sleep) is officially in favor of abolishing DST.

Based on evidence that shows the switch to daylight saving time carries many health and accident risks and is misaligned with human circadian biology, the position of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine is that seasonal time changes should be abolished in favor of permanent standard time.

"Mounting evidence shows the dangers of seasonal time changes, which have been linked to increased medical errors, motor vehicle accidents, increased hospital admissions and other problems," said Jennifer Martin, a licensed clinical psychologist and president of the AASM. "Restoring permanent, year-round standard time is the best option for our health and well-being."

Wait, there's more.

A study in the journal Current Biology predicts that killing Daylight Savings Time could prevent 36,550 deer deaths, 33 human deaths, 2,054 human injuries and $1.19 billion in collision costs per year.

For the love of everything, why do we still abide by this abomination?

If government won't act in the best interest of its people, we need to rise up and just stop obeying the draconian dictate that is Daylight Savings Time.

OK, I am off to bong some more coffee. I hope you have a lovely day.

Democrats Are Terrified Of An Educated And Informed Public.

It’s a strange time in the United States, where one political party is actively engaged in a series of actions to keep as many people as possible ignorant. Ignorant not of one particular event, study, or story, but of so many topics that reality itself” is what they’re ultimately attempting to obscure. It’s evil, honestly, and it begs the question "What are Democrats so afraid of?” The only answer is simple: an informed public.

Communists in the old Soviet Union were terrified that their citizens would discover how well people in the free west were living. There were no bread lines, there were options – lots of options, for everything. This reality worried the communist leadership and would have confused their subjects, much like Bernie Sanders in 2015 lamented the idea that there were too many choices for deodorant and shoes. “You don't necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country,” he famously said.

The great thing about capitalism is you can have both choices and charity. Options matter, and an educated public, free from government tyranny, make choices about those options that is best for them rather than a faceless bureaucrat thousands of miles away imposing what they think is best for you.

The only way that second prospect gains any traction is ignorance. Ignorance of history and how that model has failed every time it’s been tried, and ignorance of information where people are kept in the dark about reality and, therefore, draw manipulated and pre-selected conclusions and act accordingly. This is where Democrats live.

I’ve known Tucker Carlson since we met back in 2008, and I never noticed the horns. Granted, I’ve never touched his head, but next time I see him I will pat it down since I need to know if I’m hanging out with the Devil, as I’ve been told by Democrats, and, while it would be awkward to run my hands through his hair, it beats patting his ass to check for a tail.

Is This the Biden Official Who Leaked Classified Info During the Chinese Spy Balloon Fiasco? Matt Vespa

What was his sin? Providing more information to the American public on something Democrats do not want us to have more information on: January 6th. He played more video, un-Democrat-approved video, of people in the Capitol building. He exposed truth that contradicted what Democrats have gotten so much political mileage out of, thereby exposing them as liars, both by commission and omission.

You’d think this would be a big story –- Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th committee manipulated the public, weaponizing Congress and its subpoena power to influence an election. The Democrats were Putin without invading Ukraine.

Nope. The media -– the people who throw out their shoulders patting themselves on the back over their “speaking ‘truth’ to power” tramp-stamp tattoo – had no interest.

Rather than demanding answers from Democrats, who so obviously lied that even Stevie Wonder could see it, the press-credentialed class were incredulous toward Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy for releasing the footage. Journalists upset over the public gaining access to more information, which used to be what they lived for. No questions for any member of the committee, Pelosi, or prosecutors who put a guy away for 4 years claiming he was some sort of violent ringleader, when new footage proved he was escorted by police alone and confronted exactly no one. Cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal is a figure worthy of sympathy and support –- hell, he’d have a show on MSNBC right now if he were out of prison –- but Jacob Chansley needs to spend every second of his sentence in prison because he dressed weird and upset Liz Cheney, Adam Schiff and Jamie Raskin.

To call the press the flying monkey army of the DNC is to insult fictional flying monkeys.

But it’s not just January 6th the left is circling the wagons to keep people ignorant of, it’s everything. Not a single Democrat asked any serious questions designed to gain information about the origins of COVID at a hearing this week. Those who bothered to show up did all they could to protect Tony Fauci’s reputation. Not a single Democrat expressed any concern for government bureaucrats pressuring social media companies to censor American citizens because they found what they were saying to be inconvenient or wrong. None gave a damn about the express violations of the First Amendment, not one.

It’s not that they do not care –- indifference isn’t nefarious, and what Democrats are doing is evil – it’s that they benefit from the lies and ignorance. Most of the left-wing attacks on Tucker and conservative media aren’t on substance –- Democrats don’t engage in substantive arguments, they simply dismiss with contempt and move on, preaching only their ignorant choir –- they are designed to prevent people from consuming unapproved information. They couch it as “We watch conservative media so you don’t have to” but it’s really “We watch conservative media and lie about it in the hope you never do it yourself.”

Make up your own damn mind. I encourage you to flip on MSNBC every once in a while, if only to keep up with what the enemy is doing. Like visiting a zoo when you’re likely never going to run the risk of being trampled by an elephant, you should at least know what one looks like and is capable of. And when it comes to politics, Democrats are capable of anything. There is no bottom for them, no line they won’t cross. And the only way that works is with an ignorant public. Explains the schools in every left-wing stronghold in the country, doesn’t it?

Dear Santa.

When I was a child, my father cheated on my mom, and didn't love my family.
Later, my parents divorced.
Soon after, my mother died in a car accident.
My brother and I could only live in my grandma's old house.
Grandma's sister was an alcoholic.
The whole family lived on my grandma's savings.
Grandma recently died.
My uncle Andy is barely keeping himself out of jail from day to day.
My brother left home and won't talk to us anymore.
Dad is 73, and had to go out to work to support the family, and eventually he is going to want me to do the same thing.

Yours sincerely,

Prince William
