Doctor Commissar: Vanessa Moulton

I don’t wanna talk about Chinavirus for awhile. *heads to the tabloids* Oh my, guess what Not-Prince Harry has been doing to keep busy? Micromanaging the mental health of the English military!

Prince Harry reveals he stays ‘fit and strong’ by training ‘mind and body as one’ as he launches an online mental health tool for military personnel that has taken three years to build

htt ps://

Offhand, I cannot think of any man less qualified to lecture his ex-fellow soldiers about mental health than the man formerly known as Prince. Wait, was Heath Ledger English? *checks* Australian.

The Duke of Sussex has spearheaded a new mental fitness tool aimed at helping the military with their well-being.

Former soldier Prince Harry, 35, appears in a video on, which has been designed to offer round-the-clock access to self-help tools to enhance mood, drive and confidence.

“Suicides among servicemen are up because the government isn’t doing enough about their mental health. Hello, I’m Prince Kitchen-Bitch and you should do what I do!”

In a clip shared online, the Queen’s grandson, who is now living in Los Angeles after quitting as a working royal, urges members of the armed forces to train their ‘mind and body as one’.

He didn’t quit as a working royal, he tried to merchandise his title and got shown the door. I didn’t call him the man formerly known as Prince for nothing.

In fact, if he’s trying to influence military fitness without the government’s permission then his behavior could be construed as an attempted coup.

Speaking about the project, which he has been working on for three years, the Duke explains: ‘We need you to be able to access that ten or fifteen per cent, something which can only be attained when you adopt a regular routine for training the mind and the body as a single unit. I know this to be true. It works for me.’

Is this the old “you only use ten percent of your brain” canard? It’s true that only a tenth of your brain is used for high-level cognition–the prefrontal cortex–but the rest of your brain doesn’t just sit on the sofa like an American slut-wife. One-third of the brain is vision processing, another tenth is processing your other senses, the limbic system is maybe a quarter of the brain and then you’ve got stuff like memory and motor skills.

The project, led by Harry, was due to be unveiled in June but its launch was brought forward to help service personnal tackle new challenges during the coronavirus pandemic.

‘Today, when we talk about fitness, we don’t just mean how fast you can run or how much weight you can carry,’ Harry says in the footage.

‘This is about mental fitness, strength and resilience, not just while wearing a uniform, but for the rest of your life.

‘If you want to be truly fit, strong and healthy, you need to train your mind and body as one. Some people run, others swim, cycle or lift weights in order to be physically fit.

‘But what do you do to stay mentally fit? Think about what you can do to unlock your potential, and to perform at the highest level.’

Not marry Meghan?

HeadFIT has been developed in partnership with The Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign, the Ministry of Defence and King’s College London, with clinical advice from psychologist Dr Vanessa Moulton.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left the joint Royal Foundation with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last year, but it was said at the time that there would be future collaboration on Heads Together.

Why are they playing such softball with Harry’s ex-royalty status? Am I committing some kind of thoughtcrime?

Prince Harry and Meghan have since stepped away from the monarchy to pursue a life of personal and financial freedom in the US.

The American variant is “he left to spend more time with his family” but that would sound very wrong in Harry’s context.

So, what’s HeadFIT? And then we’ll dig into who Vanessa is.

*GunnerQ pulls up*


Some HeadFIT tools involve going outside or spending time with other people but, for now, please use the tools in line with the latest Government guidelines on the Coronavirus.

Hahaha! The truth about mental health hurts, doesn’t it? The truth that going outside and spending time socializing is a better path to mental health than following government guidelines that exist in opposition to that.

Proceeding, all I’m seeing is the usual self-help drivel. Time to consider the author of this recycled garbage: Vanessa Moulton. Per her LinkedIn, she graduated in psychology in 1997 which would put her current age at 44. That makes me very suspicious of the few pics I’ve found of her:

She has surely hit the wall by now.

I use evidence based models within all aspects of my work to ensure outcomes are effective and measurable.

Standard ditsy airhead. While looking into her, I found this article that says much about why Globalist Ex-Prince Harry recruited her.

How to protect your child from radicalisation

By Dr Vanessa Moulton, 22 February 2019

Radicalisation is a daunting concept; especially if you think it might be happening to your child or someone you know. But what exactly is it, what are the warning signs and how should you respond if you think someone close to you is being radicalised?

You should alert your child’s schoolteachers so they can invoke the proper authorities to root out the badthink? Yay, I get a cookie!

Chartered psychologist Dr Vanessa Moulton explains how to safeguard your children:

What is radicalisation?

Radicalisation is when someone starts to believe and support extreme aspirations around terrorism, political, social or religious ideals.

Whew! I only distrust MOST Jews, which is not an extreme position.

This can lead to participation in extremist groups, vocally or actively.

Because of the potential increase in radicalisation, there has understandably been a more direct focus on how we safeguard our children against it, just as we safeguard children against other risk factors.

On a serious note: radicalisation is literally Orwellian badthink.

Why does radicalisation occur?

Because the government defines “normal” as an extremist position.

Research shows that children have a robust bias to trust and therefore with the huge daily influence and ease of access to the internet and social media, children are easily exposed to extremism ideologies and views which can end up being normalised. Children and young people can of course also be exposed to the influence of extremism by family and friends.

The Soviet Union called to say they ain’t dead yet.

Radicalisation can also be more prevalent with children who are more vulnerable to being influenced. There are certain indicators that would make a child or young person more vulnerable which include:

– Struggling with a sense of identity, low self-esteem, being bullied, feeling isolated and lonely and struggling to interact socially.

“Where’s Daddy?”

– Lacking a sense of belonging; feeling judged about their culture, gender, race or religion and therefore questioning their place in society or British culture.

“Why is the government replacing us with African Muslims?”

– Feeling confused about a complex world and how to interpret their thought processes. Exposure to traumatic events will also exacerbate this.

“Look at that, another Muzzie sand rat driving on the sidewalk. Must be Thursday.”

Radicalisation warning signs

There are several general indicators to look out for. But it is also really important to point out that each of these in their own right would not necessarily suggest radicalisation; it could be normal child or teenage behaviour. These can include the following:

– Isolating themselves: cutting themselves off from others. This can be the family and friends they normally hang out with, as well as hanging out with new friends. This could be because they are being secretive with how they are spending their time, but also potentially because the radicalisation is making them feel like they ‘belong’ to something which may be really important to them right now.

The globalists have a terror of “loners”, which is yet another reason their Chinavirus lockdowns are a bad move.

– Getting defensive: becoming protective of the views they have and therefore becoming anxious or angry easily. This is because they are seeing you and others as a ‘threat’ to the beliefs they are harbouring.

Unlike the Narrative, which never sees alternative beliefs as a threat. Unless they exist.

– Sounding different: you might recognise that the words they are using don’t sound like theirs and they belong to someone else or demonstrate extremist views.

– Mood changes: they may be getting stressed or anxious, or advocating violent actions.

– Narrow-mindedness: they have rigid extremist views and refuse to be flexible in their attitudes.

Vanessa is pure Globalist Communism. “We must not tolerate people who are intolerant!”

How to talk about radicalisation

First of all, it is important to talk to your child about your concerns. You can also talk to their teachers to see if they have noticed any changes in their behaviour or are concerned at all. Schools will have a safeguarding lead due to the government’s ‘Prevent’ duty so set up a meeting with them as they will be able to provide some really good advice. There are organisations who are really supportive of helping parents work through concerns that they have, such as the NSPCC, which is confidential and anonymous.

Protecting your child from radicalisation

Helping your child feel heard is one of the most important steps to prevent your child from being radicalised. You can do this through providing a safe environment for your children to express their views to you. Also make sure they are aware of support services such as Childline where they talk about their opinions and feelings.

In a matriarchy, Daddy Government always knows best. You see this from advice columns to child “services”, that if you have any questions about proper behavior then you need to consult with the State-Designated Experts. Remember, independent thought is extremist thought!

Talk to your child about online safety, making sure they understand the dangers or ‘grooming’ and extreme views online, and ensure you have parental controls of their online usage and check their privacy settings. Take an interest in their online usage and make sure you talk to them regularly about the sites they are using.

For young kids, okay. For older kids, they need to be taught Why along with the What. That means religion.

Protection advice from the NSPCC

Sigh. Vanessa is a credentialed expert claiming fifteen years’ experience as Director Of Something. What’s her advice? “Carefully follow these government guidelines!” If she was talking about her husband then the attitude would have been endearing. Either way, she didn’t need a doctorate for this.

Protecting children from radicalisation is similar to keeping them safe from other harms such as being involved in a gang or being sexually exploited. It is vital that parents talk to their children, openly and regularly, about their lives (both offline and online) to help keep them safe. It is also important that parents help their children explore their identity by reassuring them if they are struggling that it is fine to be confused and they can always come to you for advice. You should also agree rules together about what behaviour is ok and what’s not.

Many parents wonder if they should snoop on their children’s devices or social media accounts. We wouldn’t advise this approach as it could make young people feel their privacy has been invaded, and might make them less likely to come to you if there is a problem.

Which is it? “Take an interest in their online usage and make sure you talk to them regularly about the sites they are using” or “We wouldn’t advise this approach as it could make young people feel their privacy has been invaded”?

If you notice any change in a child’s behaviour and you’re worried, you can call the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000. These signs don’t necessarily mean a child is being radicalised – it may be normal teenage behaviour or a sign that something else is wrong, but don’t wait until you’re certain.

Because thought criminals are everywhere! Like the thought criminals who think Prince Harry is no longer a member of the Royal Family.


Was Gary Lenius Murdered?

I’ll say straight off, I don’t have hard evidence. What I do have is a pattern that fits like Michael Jackson’s glove. We’re talking about Fisk Tank Cleaner Woman, now… at long last… identified as Wanda Lenius. Only now do I even have a picture of her.

Gary and Wanda Lenius. This is the ONLY picture of the couple released into the mainstream by anybody thus far. My first “disturbance in the Force” was that her headline-grabbing stunt came with total identity protection from the media, so much so that I actually wondered if she existed at all. Her name was withheld for weeks by the very media desperate to accuse Trump of every crime in human history and that just ain’t natural behavior for them.

Gary on the left looks like he lives in pain, to judge from the bags under his eyes. Body is very thin but being a retired Arizona snowbird, a common condition. He was still high-functioning when this pic was taken to judge from his well-maintained goatee. His skin tone says he gets much more sun than his wife.

Wanda’s hair is not just frizzy, it’s frizzy-Skrillex. She also colors it at an age well past reasonable. Maybe her husband likes blondes… could be nothing, could be an indicator of attention-seeking. Methinks she has an extremely pessimistic mouth (downturned corners when not smiling.)

We start with a brief recap.

Man dies after taking chloroquine in an attempt to prevent coronavirus

By Erika Edwards and Vaughn Hillyard, 23 March 2020

An Arizona man has died after ingesting chloroquine phosphate — believing it would protect him from becoming infected with the coronavirus. The man’s wife also ingested the substance and is under critical care.

The toxic ingredient they consumed was not the medication form of chloroquine, used to treat malaria in humans. Instead, it was an ingredient listed on a parasite treatment for fish.

The man’s wife told NBC News she’d watched televised briefings during which President Trump talked about the potential benefits of chloroquine. Even though no drugs are approved to prevent or treat COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, some early research suggests it may be useful as a therapy.

The name “chloroquine” resonated with the man’s wife, who asked that her name not be used to protect the family’s privacy. She’d used it previously to treat her koi fish.

“I saw it sitting on the back shelf and thought, ‘Hey, isn’t that the stuff they’re talking about on TV?’”

Unbelievably stupid. On one hand, USA is a big country with lots of room for fools and this was at a time that many people were feeling panicky. On the other hand, Gary is a mechanical engineer who worked for John Deere. I can credit Batty Betty with thinking this was the chemical Trump was talking about but not an engineer who worked with farm equipment for his career.

Did Gary know that his drink had fish tank cleaner in it? He would certainly know that cures don’t work BEFORE you get sick. Nobody ever claimed the hydro variant was a vaccine.

The couple — both in their 60s and potentially at higher risk for complications of the virus — decided to mix a small amount of the substance with a liquid and drink it as a way to prevent the coronavirus.

“We were afraid of getting sick,” she said.

Within 20 minutes, both became extremely ill, at first feeling “dizzy and hot.”

“I started vomiting,” the woman told NBC News. “My husband started developing respiratory problems and wanted to hold my hand.”

She called 911. The emergency responders “were asking a lot of questions” about what they’d consumed. “I was having a hard time talking, falling down.”

Shortly after he arrived at the hospital, her husband died.

The fact that she also drank it argues against this being homicide. But it’s also possible that she hated both Trump and her husband enough to take a much smaller dose of it to establish an alibi.

Obviously, I’ve got work to do to make that a credible theory.

Woman Who Tried Fish Tank Cleaner for Virus Protection Is Dem Donor

The woman whose husband died after they took a substance used to clean fish tanks in an effort to prevent contracting the coronavirus is a Democratic donor who supports a “pro-science” group.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, the woman — identified only as 61-year-old Wanda to protect her identity — has given several thousand dollars to left-leaning organizations and candidates in the last two years. In February, she donated to the 314 Action Fund, which according to its website advocates “for real solutions to climate change and elect more STEM trained candidates to public office.”

I love the irony that a woman who contributed to “science-based political opposition to Trump” is the same woman who drank fish tank cleaner because Trump told her to. Or at least, I loved the irony until it occurred to me that this might have been a way to murder her husband and blame Trump for it.

Wanda and her husband, 68-year-old Gary, ingested the chemical earlier this month because it contained chloroquine phosphate. Both fell ill, and Gary died.

President Donald Trump and others, including Dr. Mehmet Oz, have touted the potential benefits of using hydroxychloroquine, a different form of the substance that’s used to treat malaria, for patients sickened with the COVID-19 virus.

Ingesting the poisonous chloroquine phosphate, Wanda told the Free Beacon, was a “spur of the moment” decision.

“We weren’t big supporters of [Trump], but we did see that they were using it in China and stuff,” Wanda said. “And we just made a horrible, tragic mistake. It was stupid, and it was horrible, and we should have never done it. But it’s done and now I’ve lost my husband. And my whole life was my husband.”

“We didn’t think it would kill us. We thought if anything it would help us ‘cus that’s what we’ve been hearing on the news.”

I’ll come back to those boldfaced comments she made.

Man Who Died Ingesting Fish Tank Cleaner Remembered as Intelligent, Levelheaded Engineer

By Alana Goodman, 24 April 2020

In death, he has become famous as a cautionary tale about the risks of mindlessly following the armchair medical advice President Donald Trump has dispensed from the White House podium.

But friends of 68-year-old Gary Lenius, the Arizona man who passed away last month from drinking a fish tank cleaner that contained an ingredient, chloroquine phosphate, that Trump had touted as a potential coronavirus cure, say they are still struggling to understand what drove an engineer with an extensive science background to do something so wildly out of character.

This article is why I’m going on the record with my doubts: because the people who knew Gary in real life are having the exact same doubts.

These people describe Lenius as intelligent and levelheaded, not prone to the sort of reckless and impulsive behavior he reportedly engaged in on the day he died. This account is based on interviews with three people who knew Lenius well and paints a picture of a troubled marriage characterized by Wanda Lenius’s explosive anger.

Wanda “my whole life was my husband” Lenius.

“What bothers me about this is that Gary was a very intelligent man, a retired [mechanical] engineer who designed systems for John Deere in Waterloo, Iowa, and I really can’t see the scenario where Gary would say, ‘Yes, please, I would love to drink some of that Koi fish tank cleaner,’” one of his close friends told the Washington Free Beacon. “It just doesn’t make any sense.”

Lenius passed away on March 22 after he and his wife, Wanda Lenius, drank sodas that she had mixed with a fish tank cleaner not intended for human consumption, Wanda Lenius told the Free Beacon.

Trump critics and the news media have held up his death as a warning against following the president’s amateur medical advice, with some claiming that Trump is “lethal,” has “blood on his hands,” and should be tried at the Hague for “crimes against humanity.”

Those who know Gary Lenius, however, say they are troubled by how he has been portrayed in the media and can’t imagine him agreeing to drink an aquarium treatment. “I would like people to know that Gary was not the fool that some of the media stories and comments are depicting him to be,” said the same friend. “I really don’t think Gary knew what he was taking.”

If true, that means homicide. Maybe just involuntary manslaughter if wifey meant well… but wait, we ain’t done:

Lenius spent over three decades as a senior engineer at John Deere in Waterloo, Iowa. He met Wanda in 2000. In 2012, he purchased a home in a gated mountain community in Mesa, Ariz. After he retired, the couple moved southwest full time.

“Immediately he just fell in love with Arizona,” Wanda Lenius told the Free Beacon in an interview last month. “He would say every day, ‘Isn’t my mountain beautiful? Isn’t it gorgeous out here? Boy, it’s nice out here. I wish I lived here my whole life.’ Every day,” she continued, adding, “He would go on, and on, and on, to the point where I was, like, ‘You’re starting to sound a little weird.’” …

Wanda Lenius would often take her terrier dogs and meet her husband at the airpark, and the couple would go for a walk in the nearby desert. Those who knew the couple said they sensed tension in the marriage.

Wanda would constantly berate Gary in public,” said a source who asked that all identifying information be withheld. “Everyone was embarrassed for him, but he outwardly did not seem to care much.”

“In our opinion, their marriage was seen outwardly to be as one-sided as a marriage possibly could be: Gary worshiped Wanda,” this person said, adding that his wife “would routinely call him a ‘doofus’” and humiliate him in public.

Lenius’s friend recalled Wanda Lenius destroying her husband’s aircraft model collection after he returned home late for a meal.

“These planes take many dozens and sometimes hundreds of hours to complete,” said the friend. “Gary did not get angry, he simply junked the planes that were not repairable and fixed the rest. That is the Gary I knew, he would never get upset, he just accepted what happened and carried on.”

Gary didn’t know how to handle women. A common trait of the “Mr. Fix-It” male personality. Managing women is a completely different skillset from designing tractors.

In another recent instance, the same friend said Wanda Lenius broke her husband’s laptop screen, allegedly because she was angry he had updated the Windows software on her computer.

“Gary just ordered up a new LCD screen from Dell and took it apart and replaced the screen himself,” said the friend. “He knew nothing about repairing laptops, but he was a smart guy, he learned how.”

Wanda hated her husband. Wanda hated Trump. Wanda saw “chloroquinone” on the fish tank cleaner while her husband with out playing with friends and got an idea? Quote: “Ingesting the poisonous chloroquine phosphate, Wanda told the Free Beacon, was a “spur of the moment” decision.”

The couple met while working at John Deere in Waterloo in 2000, according to Wanda Lenius. Gary Lenius was a longtime senior engineer at the company and Wanda Halverson had recently started as a temp worker. Both were divorced. They married by the end of the year, and Wanda Lenius was hired full time in the company’s supply management division.

No, Gary! Noooo!

Seven months after their wedding, the Waterloo Police Department responded to a domestic incident at their home. The couple had gotten into an argument “concerning counseling and a possible divorce” during which Wanda allegedly hit her husband in the chest and swung a mounted birdhouse at him, according to a court affidavit from the responding officer, William Sauerbrei.

Modern marriage: a long ceremony and a short honeymoon.

The state attorney’s office charged Wanda Lenius with misdemeanor domestic abuse assault. But the couple reconciled and Gary Lenius testified in support of his wife at the trial, saying he was not hurt or put in fear of injury. The judge found Wanda not guilty.

Gary, man, I’m sorry, but you deserved your fate after forgiving her first attempts to whack you.

In the verdict, Judge Nathan Callahan wrote that the “911 tape certainly contains sufficient evidence to establish probable cause for [Wanda Lenius’s] arrest, and the observations of the officers were consistent with a finding of probable cause for arrest of the Defendant.” But due to Gary Lenius’s trial testimony, the judge said he was unable to find “proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Defendant either placed her husband in fear, injured him, or that she had the intent to do so.”

In 2005, after working full time at John Deere for four years, Wanda Lenius went on long-term disability after developing debilitating mental and physical health problems from gender and age discrimination she faced at the company, according to court records in a 2012 lawsuit she filed against John Deere.

What a BITCH!

Wanda Lenius told the court that she faced “gender-based harassment” and age discrimination, including getting passed over for promotions because she was a woman in her 40s. The litigation was similar to a lawsuit she had filed in 1997 against her former employer, the Cedar Valley Medical Clinic, although in that case, she said the company discriminated against her because she was viewed as a “young, single girl.” That case was dismissed in 1999.

Dr. James Harding, Wanda’s psychologist at the Black Hawk-Grundy Mental Health Center in Waterloo, told the court in the John Deere lawsuit that Wanda had post-traumatic stress disorder and anger issues due to her experience at the company.

Is this a woman who would poison the husband she hated and already repeatedly attacked in a way that makes Orange Man look bad? Yes. Yes, this is exactly such a woman.

“In the process of externalizing her stress, she remains very angry and full of adrenaline much of the time which has been very hard on her health,” he said in a July 31, 2013, letter. “Anything related to John Deere such as signs, colors, even former friends there can be powerful triggers to flashbacks, causing rage and a desire to attack back.”

Wanda Lenius said during a deposition in the case that she was “furious all the time” and that the stress had taken a toll on her marriage.

“I’m just mad,” she said. “I want my husband to retire even though he doesn’t want to because I do not want to ever hear [those] two words again: ‘John Deere.‘ I never want to hear that again in my life when this is over with. Ever. And I am moving as far away as I can get without leaving the United States of America.”

Wanda “my whole life was my husband” Lenius.

In a phone interview with the Free Beacon, Wanda said she and her husband had seen President Trump praise a drug called chloroquine on the news, citing preliminary studies that showed it could be a promising treatment for coronavirus. She said she remembered purchasing a jar of “chloroquine phosphate” years before to clean a fish tank.

A woman who once claimed the insanity-by-PTSD defense in a courtroom randomly remembered the term “chloroquine phosphate” for years?

Or, did she watch Trump’s report then get an idea the next time she saw the bottle?

The powder form of the drug is sold by aquarium suppliers and is used to treat viral outbreaks in large fish tanks. She told the Free Beacon she had mentioned this to her husband “and he kind of laughed at me, you know. It was just a regular conversation.”

She asked her husband questions about the CP. He “kind of laughed” at her. Then she mixed it into a drink and fed it to him. He died as a direct result.


She said she didn’t think about chloroquine again until a few days later, March 22, when Lenius confessed to her that he had hurt his leg while riding his new dirt bike and might have to go see a doctor.

Gary might have loved Wanda but one notices that all of his hobbies got him out of the house.

“I’d already stocked the house with groceries and extra dog food and everything was set. We were ready to self-isolate,” said Wanda. “He didn’t want to tell me that he got hurt bad because he knew I was upset. I didn’t want him to ride a motorcycle, he was 68 and I didn’t want him getting hurt.”

Wanda Lenius said her husband was planning to schedule a doctor’s appointment to have his leg looked at and the couple worried he might pick up coronavirus at the clinic. That’s when, she said, she reached for the fish tank cleaner in her pantry.

Asked if she and Lenius had a conversation about taking the chloroquine at that time, she told the Free Beacon: “No. I mean, it was really kind of a spur of the moment thing,” adding that the couple ingested “one teaspoon and some soda” each—at least four times the lethal limit.

How did Wanda survive a self-poisoning at four times the lethal dose? Occam’s Razor, she didn’t take that size of a dose.

A friend of Lenius’s said that Wanda Lenius “often made a cocktail of vitamins for Gary.”

Those who knew Gary said he was in “good spirits” and seemed “normal” in the days before he died. One source said that Gary had recently started undergoing chelation therapy, a medical procedure that is typically used to treat people who have abnormally high levels of heavy metals in their blood, such as lead, mercury, or arsenic. It is sometimes also used as a homeopathic remedy for heart disease, autism, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Bloody Hell, was Wanda ALREADY poisoning him???

About a week before he passed away, a friend said Lenius told him “that he would never remarry if something happened with him and Wanda.”

“Gary loved Wanda,” said the friend. “He trusted her to do the right thing for him, I doubt that he second-guessed when she gave him the chloroquine.”

Maybe he didn’t guess the first time.

I can’t prove it in a court… but I think Gary Lenius was murdered by Wanda.

The Fish Tank Cleaner Murder.

The Wu Flu Lockdown in Microcosm

Mogadishu Matt turned me on to advice column commentary once again.

Let it not be said that my friends are good influences upon me! This upcoming dingbat perfectly captures the sociosexual issues of the Made-In-Chinavirus Lockdown.

Exposure Worries Mother


“Ask Amy”, Page E4 of Dead Tree Edition, Los Angeles Slimes, 23 April 2020

Dear Amy: I have a 3-year-old son. His father and I separated when he was a baby but we have a good co-parenting relationship.

No, you don’t, Dingbat. Daddy is not, repeat not a fan of being half-removed from his child’s life. You don’t care about your son because he is only a meal ticket to ride the chilamony train… but Daddy cares enough to accept visitation in fear of no visitation.

The son is three and Daddy works. How is co-parenting is even a thing for these people? I assume Daddy has a caregiver lined up.

We’ve never had any problems with this arrangement. My son sees his father nearly every day.

I have an immune deficiency and mild asthma.

We’ll assume this is true. On the one hand, it easily could be. On the other hand, it came immediately after her self-serving lies about her marriage-no-more.

Worrying about the COVID-19 pandemic, I do not want to leave my young son without a mother.

Relax, he’ll still have a father. One who is already trained to be a single parent. Who’s the breadwinner and who’s the expendable, sickly, ungrateful deadweight here?

Kids don’t need both parents anyway. Remember telling yourself that during the divorce, Dingbat?

I’m trying to take every precaution against contracting the virus, including using lots of hand sanitizer, and cleaning anything (like groceries) that comes into my house.

My ex has a robust immune system. He is not worried about the coronavirus. He is working and going out for groceries.

We have a breadwinner!

He is not using hand sanitizer or cleaning frequently touched surfaces. While he is physically distancing and washing his hands a bit more than usual, I don’t feel like this is enough, given my immune-compromised situation.

Methinks there’s a lot he does that does not meet with her approval. Exhibit ‘A’: their divorce.

If he gets the virus, he is likely to have mild symptoms or be asymptomatic. I’m afraid he will catch the virus and give it to my son, who will pass it to me. I’ve tried talking to him about this, but he is not receptive. What is your advice? -Worried Mom

That right there is a microcosm of the national temper. How do we force the strong and healthy to protect the old and sickly from what does not threaten the strong and healthy?

The correct answer is, you don’t. The health of the old or sickly is a problem for the old and/or sickly. Here, the man she wants involuntarily locked up is doing productive work (she is presumably not) and errands such as grocery shopping.

I have two pieces of advice for Dingbat. One, give up your son to his father’s exclusive custody for the duration of the lockdown. You get along, right? That means he’s a good, trustworthy father, right? Then trust him with Son in order to safeguard your health… from your son.

Number Two: prepare for Kung Flu! You are going to get it, whether from your husband or another source. The purpose of the lockdown is to prevent our hospitals from ever exceeding capacity… not to prevent you from ever getting sick at all. The lockdown WILL end and you WILL get sick then if not earlier. Sucks to be you.

If our hospitals get any more “not overwhelmed” then they’ll go out of business for lack of work.

Frankly, Dingbat, you needing a week’s stay in the Respiratory Ward would be good for the economy right now. Maybe a gastric bypass surgery while you’re catheterized? But I digress.

If I seem a bit cold-hearted then it’s because I need my gym to have a healthy, pain-free spine. You damned Karens took away what I need to be healthy and justified it by you not wanting to risk being unhealthy. If the worst that happens to you out of this debacle is Daddy getting full custody because you selfishly put your son away then you’re lucky. I already made the sacrifice of my health, now it’s your turn, you uncaring solipsistic dingbat.

For the record, the official response:

Dear Worried: Parents are supposed to have the capacity to forgo their immediate impulses for the sake of their children. The best way to prevent this illness is to avoid exposure. The best way for your son to have both parents in his life, long into the future…

Assuming he will still want to associate with a mother who considered him a disease vector…

…is to avoid exposure. You and your ex should connect with your son’s pediatrician — together, and immediately (though video conferencing) — to ask for a physician’s advice.

This was a very wordy “I don’t know”.

Your boy travels between parents nearly every day. One obvious idea would be for these visits to be temporarily stopped, or cut down — temporarily, for everyone’s safety (including his, of course).

That was my advice, except I said Daddy who still keeps society working should get custody. Who does Dear Amy think should get custody, and why? Place your bets!

By the way, kids don’t die from Chinavirus. They barely even get sick. His safety is not at risk here.

If your ex would agree to cut these visits to even three times a week, this would limit the number of possible exposures between households. You should also seriously discuss the reality and possibility of one parent (you or him) NOT having your son with you, perhaps for the next month, and then negotiating ways to make up the difference after the risk has passed.

Amy WANTS to says what I said, but she can’t bring herself to say it.

The CDC suggests that children over age 2 should wear a cloth face covering when in a “community setting.” When your son is delivered to you, you should wear a mask, he should put on a mask, and be taken directly to the bathroom for some healthy handwashing and to take his temperature. There are many examples online of cloth masks made for kids.

If you continue visits, don’t let him bring toys or books between households.

Daddy: “Hey, son, good to see you!”



And that’s how the government is treating us men, too. They took our jobs away. They took our exercise and friends away. They’re running the money printing presses so hot that they smell like Hell from the far side of the continent while not allowing us to shop in “unnecessary” stores for toys to play with.

Because our dickless micro-tyrants grown fat on our money love us that much.


Jesus Bans Christianity

Has allowing government “emergency powers” EVER been a good idea?

US judge denies bid to open California churches in pandemic

By Don Thompson, 22 April 2020

SACRAMENTO — A federal judge on Wednesday said he will deny a bid by three Southern California churches to hold in-person church services during the pandemic, saying that government’s emergency powers trump what in normal times would be fundamental constitutional rights.

Newsom has no timeline for giving up those emergency powers. Just sayin’.

U.S. District Judge Jesus Bernal in Los Angeles said he will reject the temporary restraining order the churches sought against Gov. Gavin Newsom and other officials. They argued that the state’s stay-at-home orders violate the First Amendment right to freedom of religion and assembly.

Stanford Law, Obama appointee, proved his Socialist chops litigating in Los Angeles prior to nomination as a judge.

“During the state of emergency the executive powers are in effect, in that they are empowered to provide for emergency remedies which may infringe on fundamental constitutional rights,” Bernal said the the end of the hour-long hearing. He said he will soon issue a formal ruling.

If restrictions on government power can be removed if government singlehandedly issues a decree then it’s not a restriction on government power, now is it?

Many churches have been holding online services. California officials on Friday said religious organizations can have drive-in services so long as congregants don’t have personal contact.

That’s not enough for God. God requires Communion and meeting together. Only fraudulent pastors think drive-in theater or a youTube channel is sufficient for practicing Christianity.

This is not something that atheist government leaders are permitted to determine.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon, a Republican Party official and chief executive of the nonprofit Center for American Liberty, argued that it is unfair for the state to allow people to attend to other needs that have been deemed essential, like going to the grocery store or picking up meals, while blocking religious services that she said for many believers are as important as eating.

But state Deputy Attorney General Todd Grabarsky said during the hearing held by teleconference that religious organizations are not being singled out by rules that similarly restrict gatherings at concerts, nightclubs, schools — even in-person court hearings.

Translation, “We categorized churches as nonessential instead of essential, therefore we get to shut them down in violation of the Constitution we swore to uphold.” And Judge Hay-Soos agreed.


Sarah Walton Brady Fails At Civil Disobedience

Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea of telling the Cloud People where to stick their God Complexes more every day. But there are good ways to do civil disobedience, there are bad ways… and then there’s the way Sarah Walton Brady of Meridian, Idaho did civil disobedience. The UGLY way! has the one-stop scoop for us.

My readers already know my opinion of disorderly hair. Beyond that, she isn’t herself ugly. The narrow, upturned nose seems common in excitable people.

Sarah Brady: Idaho Woman Arrested Over ‘Playdate’ Coronavirus Protest

Sara Walton Brady is the Idaho mother arrested after police said she and others refused to leave a playground that had been closed to the public as part of the state’s efforts to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Sounds like the Gestapo are alive and well in Idaho! But when I read further, the story came out different.

Brady was arrested on April 21 for trespassing and violating city orders, according to a news release from the Meridian Police Department. She was booked into the Ada County Jail but posted bond within a couple of hours.

The Idaho Freedom Foundation explained on its website that Brady and other parents had been participating in a “playdate protest” against Governor Brad Little’s stay-at-home. The statewide order went into effect on March 25 and is currently expected to last through April 30.

I don’t object to planned protests… but don’t expect me to cry when the handcuffs come out. Occupational hazard, y’know.

Here’s what you need to know.

1. An Officer Asked Sarah Brady Multiple Times to Leave the Playground Before Placing Her In Handcuffs, Police Say

Sarah Brady and other parents gathered at Kleiner Park in Ada County, Idaho on April 21. The playground area had been closed to the public due to coronavirus concerns. According to the Meridian Police Department, the playground had been cordoned off with caution tape and there were signs instructing people not to use the equipment. But police said they observed that the signs and the tape had been taken down. Officers responded to the park after receiving “several calls to Ada County Dispatch,” according to the news release.

Brady’s arrest was recorded on a cellphone and posted to Facebook Live but the full video has since been deleted. KTVB-TV reported that on the original video, the officers were recorded telling Brady and others that they were allowed on the grass and sidewalks but that the playground set was closed. Brady repeatedly asked why they weren’t allowed to be there.

When the cops give you an easy out like that, take it. You made your point. Tomorrow, somebody else brings their kids to the playground and gets the warning. And the next day, somebody else, until the cops get tired and give up. Do NOT throw a fit, create a scene and give the cops no option but to arrest you. Unnecessary arrests are unnecessary.

In a shorter clip that has circulated on social media, which is embedded above, an officer was seen asking Brady to leave the playground area as she insisted they were not trespassing. The officer said, “Exit the playground area now. I’m really trying to be nice about this.” Brady eventually turned her back to the officer and said, “Arrest me for being difficult. Do it! Record it!”

Stupidity like hers should be a crime. This time, it was!

2. Sarah Brady Says She Never Touched the Playground Equipment & Felt ‘Singled Out’

Sarah Brady said she felt her arrest was unfair because she never actually touched the playground equipment at Kleiner Park. She told CBS affiliate KBOI-TV, “I feel like I was singled out because I was the only person that was arrested. I definitely wasn’t playing on the playground equipment. I wasn’t swinging, never touched them. But yeah, I do feel like I was singled out and maybe it was because I asked too many questions.”

Maybe you’re crossing the streams of “I’m just a mom” with “I’m a political activist asking for trouble”. Which is it, Sarah? Your answering a question that wasn’t asked indicates the latter. The cops said “you are trespassing” and you replied “but I’m not touching the playground”? Note that the cops weren’t asking a question at all.

The point of civil disobedience is to make useless laws too burdensome to enforce. Not to defy their enforcement after the enforcers show up. That’s criminal disobedience, not civil disobedience. There’s a difference.

Speaking of the fuzz, here’s their take. Boldfaces mine as usual.


After receiving several calls to Ada County Dispatch, Meridian Police responded to Kleiner Park on April 21 2020 at around 3:50PM. Upon arrival, officers saw that metal signage and caution tape announcing the playground closure due to COVID-19, was removed. Additionally, officers observed numerous individuals gathered on the closed playground area. Officers informed those gathered several times that the play structure was closed, and that they were welcome to utilize other areas of the park if they chose. After being told to leave the playground multiple times, forty (40) year old Sarah BRADY of Meridian refused to leave and was arrested for one (1) count misdemeanor trespassing.

Meridian officers made several attempts to help BRADY adhere to the rules. She was non-compliant and forced officers to place her under arrest to resolve the issue. She was arrested for trespassing.

These are very trying times and the Meridian Police Department supports the public’s right to assemble for peaceful protest, however the right does not include damaging public property or ignoring closures of City property and facilities.

End segue.

3. Brady Protested at Meridian City Hall After Posting Bail

Sarah Brady was arrested around 4 p.m. on April 21. Inmate records show she was booked into jail around 5 p.m. and released two hours later. Records indicate she posted a bond.

The Idaho Freedom Foundation wrote on its website that Brady had been participating in a “playdate protest at Kleiner Park in Meridian.” The organization did not explicitly state whether the protest had been planned by a specific group or whether it was more spontaneous.

The organization also stated that after posting bond, Brady went to Meridian City Hall to continue protesting against the governor’s stay-at-home order. KBOI-TV reported that hundreds of people began demonstrating outside city hall following Brady’s arrest.

It was obviously not a spontaneous protest. One should not react too quickly to upsetting news these days because people like Brady will seek to take advantage of you that way.

The Idaho Freedom Foundation claimed Brady had been charged with a misdemeanor, faced up to six months in jail if convicted and planned to fight the charge. Heavy is working to confirm whether prosecutors plan to file a formal charge.

Six months for trespass would suggest a prior criminal record. Indeed, documents her previous brush with law enforcement… as unnecessarily confrontational as this one was.

4. Sarah Brady Has Spoken Out Against State Immunization Requirements & Founded the Group ‘Idahoans For Vaccine Freedom’

Sarah Brady is a well-known figure in the Meridian community. She runs the Facebook group Idahoans for Vaccine Freedom and is associated with Health Freedom Idaho, which is a group that advocates for greater choice over medical decisions, including vaccines.

Brady made headlines in 2017 in a dispute related to her decision not to vaccinate her own children. She enrolled her son at a private kindergarten that year after he was denied entry into a public school.

Brady explained to the Idaho Statesman that she did not want to fill out the exemption form the school required because it asked for information not required by state law. Instead, Brady wrote a statement explaining why she did not vaccinate her child. Her statement was written on a copy of the Idaho immunization statute. The school district initially insisted Brady fill put the provided exemption form before eventually reversing its decision. Brady asked for a public apology and decided to keep her son at the private school.

This woman creates her own problems. Stay away!

In August 2019, Brady spoke during a public hearing at the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. She claimed that Idaho parents who chose not to vaccinate their children had been “marginalized” for their decision and called on state officials to consider feedback from all of its citizens. During the hearing, Brady told the story of a mother who said her baby girl died 48 hours after receiving vaccinations.

The plural of “story” is not “data”.

5. Idaho’s Stay-at-Home Order Prohibits Gatherings Of Any Size Unless For Essential Work

Sarah Brady has not posted about her arrest on Facebook. But she expressed her opinion about the stay-at-home order imposed in Idaho with her profile photo: It reads “Disobey Idaho” and includes an image of a snake.

According to the Idaho state government, there were 1,766 confirmed and probable coronavirus cases in the state as of April 21. 51 people have died.

Even with all the number-cooking, the fatality rate for Chinavirus is well under 5% even with the high-risk crowd… the first group to be tested, naturally.

Families in Idaho were ordered to self-isolate on March 25. The order was extended until April 30. The director of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare explained that “gatherings of individuals outside the home are prohibited.” The only exceptions were for “essential activities or essential travel or to perform work for essential businesses and government agencies or perform essential infrastructure work.”

A very foolish, very stupid decree that should be casually violated until the State quits playing God. However, directly and publicly antagonizing the authorities then claiming victimhood is not civil disobedience. It’s the behavior that put Cloud People in authority over us in the first place.


Old Harvard Biddy Wants Homeschooling Banned

Harvard Law School has a “conference” on homeschooling (should it be allowed to exist?) scheduled for June 2020. One expects it’ll run along the lines of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, part of which emancipates children from their parents… with the assistance of benevolent, disinterested government, of course.

Warming up the crowd for that three-ring circus of Hell is Benevolent, Disinterested Professor Of Law Elizabeth Bartholet.

We got a live one today, boys! At least, I think that bitter, childless spinster is still alive. She looks like Jordan Peterson with a frizzy white Afro and more determination lines between the eyes.

Bartholet is an outspoken opponent of the homeschooling movement and has urged governments to implement policies to make it more difficult or impossible for parents to educate their children at home. Bartholet characterizes homeschooling parents as ‘extreme religious ideologues’ who question science (i.e. adopt a skeptical approach to questions of evolution and human impact on climate).

A large majority of homeschooling families are conservative Christians who hold to a traditional, biblically-informed view of morality. Many homeschooling parents consequently attempt to shield their children from what they see as amoral, relativistic, or degenerate contemporary moral philosophy, and because of this alleged insularity Bartholet advocates forced assimilation of this population into what she calls “mainstream culture”.

She sounds worse than a child rapist. They only work “one kid at a time”.

Bartholet was an organizer of the Harvard Summit to Discuss Regulating Homeschooling to be held at the Harvard Law School on June 18-19, 2020. Her co-organizer, William and Mary law professor James Dwyer,

A Conversation with Professor James Dwyer | William & Mary Law School

is the author of a 1994 law review article entitled “Parents’ Religion and Children’s Welfare: Debunking the Doctrine of Parents’ Rights” (82 Calif. L. Rev. 1371), claiming that the fundamental civic relationship is not that between parents and children (the nuclear family) but between the individual and the state.

Behold the endgame of civic nationalism.

The Risks of Homeschooling

htt ps://

By Erin O’Donnell, May-June 2020 issue of Harvard Magazine

A rapidly increasing number of American families are opting out of sending their children to school, choosing instead to educate them at home. Homeschooled kids now account for roughly 3 percent to 4 percent of school-age children in the United States, a number equivalent to those attending charter schools, and larger than the number currently in parochial schools.

Now at 99% of school-age children, thank you Wu Flu.

Yet Elizabeth Bartholet, Wasserstein public interest professor of law and faculty director of the Law School’s Child Advocacy Program, sees risks for children—and society—in homeschooling, and recommends a presumptive ban on the practice. Homeschooling, she says, not only violates children’s right to a “meaningful education” and their right to be protected from potential child abuse, but may keep them from contributing positively to a democratic society.

Presumptive ban means no due process and no presumtion of innocence.

“We have an essentially unregulated regime in the area of homeschooling,” Bartholet asserts. All 50 states have laws that make education compulsory, and state constitutions ensure a right to education, “but if you look at the legal regime governing homeschooling, there are very few requirements that parents do anything.”

That doesn’t sound “unregulated”.

Even apparent requirements such as submitting curricula, or providing evidence that teaching and learning are taking place, she says, aren’t necessarily enforced. Only about a dozen states have rules about the level of education needed by parents who homeschool, she adds. “That means, effectively, that people can homeschool who’ve never gone to school themselves, who don’t read or write themselves.” In another handful of states, parents are not required to register their children as homeschooled; they can simply keep their kids at home.

That REALLY doesn’t sound “unregulated”. Poor enforcement of existing rules is the worst excuse ever for creating new rules.

But I admit, the United States is enduring a plague of illiteracy. Pull out the earbuds, crack a Bible and COOL IT WITH THE EMOJIS! >:O

This practice, Bartholet says, can isolate children.

Sending kids to State schools can radicalize children. We shouldn’t risk that.

She argues that one benefit of sending children to school at age four or five is that teachers are “mandated reporters,” required to alert authorities to evidence of child abuse or neglect. “Teachers and other school personnel constitute the largest percentage of people who report to Child Protective Services,” she explains, whereas not one of the 50 states requires that homeschooling parents be checked for prior reports of child abuse. Even those convicted of child abuse, she adds, could “still just decide, ‘I’m going to take my kids out of school and keep them at home.’”

I love an honest atheist. “Children should be sent to State schools because government experts can monitor their parents for dissident behavior by proxy!” What a pity, however, that the sheep can’t see what the sheepdogs do.

Prior reports of child abuse? I bet all fifty states check for prior CONVICTIONS of child abuse. #MeLieToo!

As an example, she points to the memoir Educated, by Tara Westover, the daughter of Idaho survivalists who never sent their children to school. Although Westover learned to read, she writes that she received no other formal education at home, but instead spent her teenage years working in her father’s scrap business, where severe injuries were common, and endured abuse by an older brother. Bartholet doesn’t see the book as an isolated case of a family that slipped through the cracks: “That’s what can happen under the system in effect in most of the nation.”

That book, Educated, was #1 on the NY Times’ bestseller list in 2018, also NY Times’ 10 Best Books of 2018 and has sold more than 4 million copies. Tara turned out fine, all ten fingers and no vibrantly savage boy-toy, at least until Brigham Young University accepted her without a high school diploma and began turning her into a bitter feminist.

Her family has retained legal representation against her, claiming misrepresentation. I’m inclined to believe the family because Tara openly despises her father for not raising her in a State-regulated institution. Forcing kids to help with the family business, how cruel!

Do scrapyards have dangerous working conditions? Welcome to equality, sister! It’s that male privilege you’ve always wanted.

Turned out that what she really wanted was to be accepted by the Christ-hating Jews of Harvard, who now parade her controversial autobiography as casus belli for tearing all children away form their parents… presumptively.

In a paper published recently in the Arizona Law Review, she notes that parents choose homeschooling for an array of reasons. Some find local schools lacking or want to protect their child from bullying. Others do it to give their children the flexibility to pursue sports or other activities at a high level. But surveys of homeschoolers show that a majority of such families (by some estimates, up to 90 percent) are driven by conservative Christian beliefs, and seek to remove their children from mainstream culture. Bartholet notes that some of these parents are “extreme religious ideologues” who question science and promote female subservience and white supremacy.

That’s the Christ-hating bit. The Jew bit, of course, is Harvard & Friends leading this anti-homeschooling movement. Nice hawknose, Professor ((Dwyer)).

She views the absence of regulations ensuring that homeschooled children receive a meaningful education equivalent to that required in public schools as a threat to U.S. democracy. “From the beginning of compulsory education in this country, we have thought of the government as having some right to educate children so that they become active, productive participants in the larger society,” she says. This involves in part giving children the knowledge to eventually get jobs and support themselves. “But it’s also important that children grow up exposed to community values, social values, democratic values, ideas about nondiscrimination and tolerance of other people’s viewpoints,” she says, noting that European countries such as Germany ban homeschooling entirely and that countries such as France require home visits and annual tests.

Democracy only works if everybody is educated by the same, centralized authority! There is NO PLACE in Democracy for dissent! Oops.

In the United States, Bartholet says, state legislators have been hesitant to restrict the practice because of the Home Schooling Legal Defense Association, a conservative Christian homeschool advocacy group, which she describes as small, well-organized, and “overwhelmingly powerful politically.” During the last 30 years, activists have worked to dismantle many states’ homeschooling restrictions and have opposed new regulatory efforts. “There’s really no organized political opposition, so they basically get their way,” Bartholet says. A central tenet of this lobby is that parents have absolute rights that prevent the state from intervening to try to safeguard the child’s right to education and protection.

GUNS, Old Maid. Guns are why American socialists are reluctant to go door-to-door confiscating children from their fathers, while they’re bold to do so in France and Germany.

Now that fathers are mostly gone, betrayed by their wives for thirty pieces of silver, Harvard thinks it’s time for a “conversation”. In June. Will the Home Schooling Legal Defense Association be invited to speak, being the ideal voice for the opposition? No bet.

Bartholet maintains that parents should have “very significant rights to raise their children with the beliefs and religious convictions that the parents hold.” But requiring children to attend schools outside the home for six or seven hours a day, she argues, does not unduly limit parents’ influence on a child’s views and ideas. “The issue is, do we think that parents should have 24/7, essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18? I think that’s dangerous,” Bartholet says. “I think it’s always dangerous to put powerful people in charge of the powerless, and to give the powerful ones total authority.

Can we quote you on that. Bartholet?

City Fills Skate Park with Sand to Deter Skaters

City Fills Skate Park with Sand to Deter Skaters

By Shawn Ray Raymundo, 16 April 2020

Amid pleas for residents to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic, the city took additional steps this week to keep skaters out of San Clemente’s skate park by pouring 37 tons of sand onto the concrete surface.

Samantha Wylie, the city’s recreation manager for the Beaches, Parks and Recreation Department, explained that since closing access to all parks on April 1, skaters continued to visit Ralphs Skate Court despite posted signage warning against trespassing.

“On April 1, we kind of let it play out to see if users would abide by the closure,” Wylie said. “During that (two-week period), we saw people…

Translation, “I saw people…”

…continue to skate the park, groups would gather, kids with their parents…

SOMEBODY is childless and bitter!

…it became a regular (occurrence). It appeared the closure was not being abided by.”

You useless, micromanaging MORON, Samantha Wylie! Did you really think that Californian outdoors enthusiasts like THIS:

…would give up and go home if you turned their SKATE PARK into a BEACH?

This is before…

…and this is after. Smooth move, Karen!


From the instagram of mayhemsurfboards_matt

We’d like to thank @cityofsanclemente, who after over-reacting and irrationally shuttering all our beaches and trails, came to the brilliant conclusion to use tax payers dwindling dollars to at least create for us a new beach, up in the Ralph’s Skatepark. Now we have an all new beautiful beach to kick back and enjoy a few #Coronas on, while we wait out the #WuhanFlu. Then, when it’s over, we can use even more tax payer dollars to clean all the sand out and carry it back to #NorthBeach, where it’s so badly needed.

I salute you, my main man Matt!

End segue

She also noted that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department had been patrolling the area as well, prompting several contacts to let skaters know the park was closed. On Monday, April 13, she said, the decision was made to take action similar to those of other cities.

The female herd instinct at work. “I must kill all joy in the world because that’s what the people I most admire would do!”

Kudos to the cops, they didn’t ticket or arrest anybody. “Hey, kids, just so you know, Killjoy Wylie’s job starts at 10am and ends at 2pm. Lie low while she’s commuting, okay?”

“The sand was what other agencies were doing. We’re doing what other parks have done to enforce that message of social distancing,” she said, noting that some cities have used mulch, hay or sand to fill in their skate parks.

SOME cities don’t have California surfer bums with cheerfully insolent attitudes about bureaucracy. I know my state has become known for queers and baby mommas but do try to remember that before Satan’s hordes moved in, we were a bit, what’s the word, anti-authoritarian?

According to Wylie, the parking lot to the Richard T. Steed Memorial Park and the adjacent skate park on Avenida la Pata was closed. But that didn’t stop visitors from parking their cars at the dog park down the road and walking up to the skate park, which wasn’t blocked off with any tall fencing.

“We did consider fencing. Fencing is really difficult to get right now, and we know we’ve done fencing at the skate park before, and it just gets hopped over,” Wylie said, later adding: “We also considered security, but there’s a cost to that. The sand, it cost us nothing to put it in, (and) it’ll cost us nothing to remove it. So that’s why we went with that decision.”

It’s just as well she didn’t try private security. As in “private-sector security”.

Whoa… “it’ll cost us nothing to remove [the sand]”???

The action, however, has raised concerns among those within the skateboard community, according to Stephanie Aguilar, president of the San Clemente Skatepark Coalition. Over the years, the nonprofit group has raised money to support the park.

While the Coalition understands the need for social distancing, Aguilar said the city could have done more to better communicate the problem with the community, such as reaching out to the nonprofit for help with messaging or using its own social channels to warn skaters that drastic steps would be taken if they didn’t abide by the closure.

“It just seems there could have been better communication, which could have helped with the response to everybody,” Aguilar said.

“There’s a lot of people within our community who have put a lot of time and money, personal money . . . to the skate park,” she said, also noting, “That visual representation of the city dumping sand into the skate park, it almost feels like, when you look at it, the city vandalized its own park, and I think it pains people to see it.”

I couldn’t find a pic of Wylie but here’s surfer girl Stephanie Aguilar:

Chamber Celebrates Citizens | San Clemente Journal

San Clemente Citizen of the Year, 2017.

The Coalition and local skateboarders are also questioning whether the sand, by trapping in moisture from potential rains and causing mildew or mold, would permanently harm the surface of the concrete.

Responding to that concern, Wylie said the city doesn’t anticipate finding any damage to the park after the sand is eventually removed. If there is damage, she added, the city would repair the concrete.

“We’re very confident that the removal of the sand will not damage the concrete surface. . . . If there is any damage to the concrete, it will be fixed,” she said. “The concrete gets damaged during normal use, and our maintenance is quick to fix it whenever things come up.”

I’m very confident that government-issued promises to clean up after itself are worth less than saltwater along the coast. Was going to say “toilet paper” but, y’know….

For the Coalition, Aguilar said, the endeavor reinforces the skateboard community’s belief of a double standard the city has had for skateboarders in San Clemente.

“Social distancing hasn’t been followed in a lot of different areas, whether it’s on our trails, tennis courts, the basketball courts, the walking paths; we didn’t see the city dump sand on the walking trail,” Aguilar said. “We didn’t see them dump sand onto any other sport area that’s being used. It just plays into, kind of feeds into that double standard the skate community has been treated with.”

In recent weeks, the city has taken drastic measures to limit the spread of the virus by closing the beaches and San Clemente Pier, as well as cutting off access to the coastal trails, including the Beach Trail and Sea Summit/Marblehead Coastal Trail.

According to Wylie, the tennis courts, which are surrounded by 12-foot fencing, have been closed, while the nets and rims have been removed from the basketball courts.

Stopping the Little People from having fun is a job that just never ends, does it, Commissar Karen?

Easter Hike 2020

This year, I didn’t even have the option to celebrate Easter in a church. While I’m more than ready to violate this stupid lockdown, I can’t because every single one of my friends and family is religiously (heh) obeying the government’s ever-more-obviously uninformed decrees. It takes two to break social distancing!

So, I decided to hike up to a cross on a remote ridge in order to celebrate Easter. It was a big, locally famous cross until it was torn down sometime around 2000. (Nobody cared enough to note exactly when.) I replaced it with a tiny little cross made at home in civil disobedience but haven’t been back in years to see how it was doing. Why not check up on it?

Oh, right. That’s why.

It’s a hard hike even by my standards. Notice the slope is steep enough that the topsoil slides off. This is northern Los Angeles, a great place for building world-class rock gardens. The low, dense brush is called chaparral, which I think is Spanish for either “tinder” or “no shade”, and is the very definition of drought-resistant. I’ve lost entire socks to weeds like these.

Here’s the trailhead, branching off the firebreak road! (Fifty yards later) That was not the trailhead. It was a dry creekbed too new to sprout flora.

Ah, here it is. Note the remains of the trail marker on the right. Seems the trail has not been maintained in recent years. There was a prison camp nearby that used inmate labor to keep the roads and trails maintained. The camp has been closed for many years now… consistent with Los Angeles gov’t championing the plight of nice people whose lives were unfairly ruined because they made a single mistake or two. Mistakes such as carjacking, robbery and cooking meth. Things that could happen to anybody, y’know.

And yes, this is where a couple of those big fires raged out of control in recent years. Hmm. Perhaps maintaining these firebreak roads & access trails was important after all.

This picture was taken with the camera tilted about twenty degrees off vertical. Only a hundred yards left to go! as the rock falls. There’s no oxygen up here!

This is where I gave up. The trail petered out and my back isn’t up to scrabbling over old avalanches to get around impenetrable, tick-infested itchy brush, but I took the opportunity to snap a couple pictures of the view.

Los Angeles as seen from the Northeast. That’s not out of focus, that’s the famous Los Angeles smog. Much better than it used to be. And this is only 2/3 up the ridge! The view is definitely worthy of a cross for honoring God.

Maybe I should put a cross on that ridge instead, on the far side of the homeless-infested alluvial plain. A much gentler slope. Burns about once a year now because homeless campfires, which means much less brush to push through!

As I headed back, I passed half a dozen fellow quarantine-breakers. Every single one had a mask, turned away at my approach and did not return my greeting. It’s worrisome how completely social cohesion has broken down here. Los Angelenos are such State sheep, they wear their Chinavirus masks while driving! Because the government said to always wear a mask “outside the home”.

Screw the fatties, they don’t even want to be human beings, but it hurt to see my outdoors-loving peers have the same attitude.

If I’d worn my State-mandated cloth mask on this hike then I would have aspirated it along with all that trail dust.

Worst. Easter. Ever.



You Lost Your Chance And Your State, Virginians

I warned you! Stop going after Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam’s deeds and go after Northam! Don’t waste time protesting bad laws while letting the bad people keep their job of passing more laws! Here are my exact words:

“…Northam will enact gun control anyway. Methinks your “lobbying” is less about results than excuses. You “heroic, law-abiding Americans” won’t do anything to remove your evil governor. Not even a recall petition.”

Now, guess what Northam & cronies have been doing to keep busy during Easter weekend?

And this is a PARTIAL listing of what he’s been up to since the Chinavirus Quarantine started.

Governor Northam Signs Historic Gun Safety Legislation into Law

10 April 2020

RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today announced he has signed several landmark gun violence prevention measures into law, including legislation to enact an Extreme Risk Protective Order, require background checks on all gun sales, mandate reporting of lost and stolen firearms, prevent children from accessing firearms, and reinstate Virginia’s successful one-handgun-a-month policy.

“We lose too many Virginians to gun violence, and it is past time we took bold, meaningful action to make our communities safer,” said Governor Northam. “I was proud to work with legislators and advocates on these measures, and I am proud to sign them into law. These commonsense laws will save lives.”

More than 1,000 Virginians die from gun-related incidents each year. Governor Northam has been a fierce and consistent advocate for gun safety measures in the Commonwealth and following the tragic May 2019 mass shooting in Virginia Beach, he immediately called a special session of the General Assembly to address the gun violence emergency in Virginia.

Guns don’t kill people. Democrats kill people while Republicans courageously attempt CPR in furious response.

Senate Bill 70 and House Bill 2 require background checks on all firearm sales in Virginia, which will prevent guns from ending up in dangerous hands.

Senate Bill 240 and House Bill 674 establish an Extreme Risk Protective Order, which creates a legal mechanism for law enforcement to temporarily separate a person from their firearms when they represent a danger to themselves or others. Virginia is now among 19 other states and the District of Columbia in enacting this type of law.

Correction, “temporarily separate a person from their firearms WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW”.

Senate Bill 69 and House Bill 812 reinstate Virginia’s one-handgun-a-month rule to help curtail stockpiling of firearms and trafficking.

House Bill 9 requires gun owners to report their lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement within 48 hours or face a civil penalty.

House Bill 1083 prevents children from accessing firearms by increasing the penalty for recklessly leaving firearms in their presence.

Governor Northam proposed amendments to these bills:

Senate Bill 35 and House Bill 421 allow localities to regulate firearms in public buildings, parks, recreation centers, and during permitted events. Amendments clarify the exemption for institutions of higher education.

Senate Bill 479 and House Bill 1004 prohibit individuals subject to protective orders from possessing firearms, require them to turn over their firearms within 24 hours, and certify to the court that they have turned over their weapons. Governor Northam amended this legislation at the request of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance. This will enhance safety for victims by allowing judges to hold the respondent in contempt of court if they fail to comply with the certification requirements.

Noncompliance with Virginia’s Red Flag law can result in incarceration without due process of law, too.

Welcome to the Hotel California, Virginians. You can check out any time you want… but you can never leave.

Governor Northam Signs Landmark Legislation on Historic Justice, Equity

11 April 2020

RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today signed new laws that repeal racist and discriminatory language from Virginia’s Acts of Assembly, give localities the ability to remove or alter Confederate monuments in their communities, and begin the process of replacing Virginia’s statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in the United States Capitol.

The history of the Confederacy just got Cancel-Cultured.

“Racial discrimination is rooted in many of the choices we have made about who and what to honor, and in many of the laws that have historically governed this Commonwealth,” said Governor Northam. These new laws make Virginia more equitable, just, and inclusive, and I am proud to sign them.”

Senate Bill 183 and House Bill 1537, sponsored by Senator Mamie Locke and Delegate Delores McQuinn, respectively, overturn the Commonwealth’s prohibition on the removal of Confederate war memorials. Starting July 1, localities will have the ability to remove, relocate, or contextualize the monuments in their communities. Virginia is home to more than 220 public memorials to the Confederacy.

Senate Bill 612 and House Bill 1406, sponsored by Senator Louise Lucas and Delegate Jeion Ward, respectively, create a commission to recommend a replacement for the Robert E. Lee statue in the United States Capitol. To date, eight statues in the National Statuary Hall have been replaced, and seven additional states are working through a similar process to replace statues.

Of all the celebrities of the Confederacy, Lee is probably the least racist.

These monuments tell a particular version of history that doesn’t include everyone,” Governor Northam said. “In Virginia, that version of history has been given prominence and authority for far too long.”

Governor Northam also signed new laws to strike discriminatory language from Virginia’s Acts of Assembly. In June 2019, Governor Northam established the Commission to Examine Racial Inequity in Virginia Law, which subsequently identified 98 instances of overtly discriminatory language still on the Commonwealth’s books. This includes laws that banned interracial marriage, blocked school integration, and prohibited black and white Virginians from living in the same neighborhoods. While many of these Acts of Assembly have been overturned by court decisions or subsequent legislation, they had remained enshrined in law.

The Acts of Assembly were part of Jim Crow legislation. This is not even about ending discrimination. It’s about unpersoning and virtue-signaling.

Senate Bill 600 and House Bill 973 repeal discriminatory language related to education

Senate Bill 636 and House Bill 1325 repeal language related to criminal law

Senate Bill 850 and House Bill 1521 relate to health laws

Senate Bill 874 and House Bill 857 relate to housing laws

Senate Bill 722 and House Bill 1638 relate to matters of General Application

Senate Bill 896 and House Bill 914 relate to transportation laws

Senate Bill 555 and House Bill 1086 repeal discriminatory language related to voting. Exact language can be viewed in the Commission’s full Interim Report.

Governor Northam also signed House Bill 1519, sponsored by Delegate Delores McQuinn, establishing a commission to study slavery in Virginia and subsequent racial and economic discrimination.

Reparations to gibmedat blacks were shot down previously but Republicans left those responsible for the effort in power… and look where we are today. When the wicked aren’t punished, they don’t stop.

Governor Northam Signs Sweeping New Laws to Expand Access to Voting

12 April 2020

RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam has signed landmark new laws to repeal Virginia’s voter ID law, make Election Day a state holiday in Virginia, and expand access to early voting.

“Voting is a fundamental right, and these new laws strengthen our democracy by making it easier to cast a ballot, not harder,” said Governor Northam. “No matter who you are or where you live in Virginia, your voice deserves to be heard. I’m proud to sign these bills into law.”

Governor Northam signed these bills:

House Bill 1 and Senate Bill 111, sponsored by House Majority Leader Charniele Herring and Senator Janet Howell, respectively, allow early voting 45 days prior to an election without a stated excuse.

House Bill 19 and Senate Bill 65, sponsored by Delegate Joe Lindsey and Senator Mamie Locke, respectively, remove the requirement that voters show a photo ID prior to casting a ballot. Voter ID laws disenfranchise individuals who may not have access to photo identification, and disproportionately impact low-income individuals, racial and ethnic minorities, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities.

Bullshit. Just suspend elections entirely, Democrats. The Republicans won’t do jack to stop you.

House Bill 108 and Senate Bill 601, sponsored by Delegate Joe Lindsey and Senator Louise Lucas, respectively, make Election Day a state holiday, which will help ensure every Virginian has the time and opportunity to cast their ballot. In order to maintain the same number of state holidays, this measure repeals the current Lee-Jackson Day holiday, established over 100 years ago to honor Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

Lamest excuse ever to repeal a holiday. Everybody knows they’re lying.

House Bill 235 and Senate Bill 219, sponsored by Delegate Joshua Cole and Senator David Marsden, respectively, implement automatic voter registration for individuals accessing service at a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office or the DMV website.

House Bill 238 and House Bill 239, sponsored by Delegate Mark Sickles, and Senate Bill 455, sponsored by Senator Bryce Reeves, expand absentee voting timelines to ensure access to the polls.

House Bill 1678, sponsored by Delegate Joe Lindsey, extends in-person polling hours from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Virginia’s photo ID law was designed to make it more difficult to vote,” said Delegate Joe Lindsey. “It is past time we repealed this law, and I’m grateful to the Governor for helping us get it done.”

The following was Northam’s test-run for the preceding:

Governor Northam Signs 32 Bills into Law

4 March 2020

Felony Larceny Threshold

Governor Northam signed House Bill 995, sponsored by Delegate Joe Lindsey, which raises the felony larceny threshold from $500 to $1,000. In 2018, Governor Northam negotiated a compromise that raised the threshold raised from $200, the first time it had been adjusted in over three decades. Thirty-five other states and Washington, D.C. have felony thresholds at or above $1,000. This measure will lead to fewer Virginians with felony convictions on their records. This bill incorporates House Bill 263 and is identical to Senate Bill 788.

“While we will continue to hold people accountable for their actions, it’s important that the punishment fit the crime,” said Governor Northam. “This bill will bring Virginia in line with the majority of states in our country, modernizing our law to ensure that one mistake does not define a person’s entire life.”

The criminal’s only mistake is believing he won’t be held to account… by Father God, if not by government.

Banning Racial Discrimination on the Basis of Hair

Governor Northam signed House Bill 1514, sponsored by Delegate Delores McQuinn…

Yep, I had to check her hair. It’s not even frizzy-suck like I expected.

…which bans discrimination on the basis of hair. The bill clarifies that when the law bans racial discrimination “on the basis of race,” that includes “traits historically associated with race, including hair texture, hair type, and protective hairstyles such as braids, locks, and twists.” This bill is identical to Senate Bill 50.

“It’s pretty simple—if we send children home from school because their hair looks a certain way, or otherwise ban certain hairstyles associated with a particular race—that is discrimination,” said Governor Northam. “This is not only unacceptable and wrong, it is not what we stand for in Virginia. This bill will make our Commonwealth more equitable and welcoming for all.”

The epidemic of black children forced to stay home from school because they had Afros is so horrible that nobody has even noticed it yet!

Legal protection for bad haircuts is a surprisingly important “civil right” for blacks…

…But not for whites…

The article ends with a couple dozen other bills, the most interesting of which is HB 639, which specifies that misdemeanor defendants found not guilty by reason of insanity cannot be punished with more than a year of incarceration. It seems fitting.

Arkham Asylum has taken over the streets, and governments, of Virginia.

South Dakota’s China Problem

South Dakota meat plant’s outbreak linked to more than half coronavirus cases in state, spurring food shortage fears

htt ps://

By Danielle Wallace, 15 April 2020

A single South Dakota meat plant – one on the country’s largest pork processing facilities – is now linked to more than half of the state’s total confirmed coronavirus cases, an outbreak that’s left industry experts fearing food shortages.

At least 438 employees at the Sioux Falls Smithfield Foods plant tested positive for COVID-19. Another 107 people tested positive after coming into close contact with Smithfield workers. The plant accounts for between 4 to 5 percent of U.S.’s pork production, according to the company.

Muh bacon! Muh pepperoni!

The 545 confirmed cases directly linked to the pork processing plant account for about 55 percent of infections in the state, with the surrounding Minnehaha and Lincoln counties most heavily affected. Out of the total 988 confirmed cases in South Dakota recorded by Wednesday, 768 cases are in Minnehaha County, where the Sioux Falls plant is located.

Three-quarters of the infected are linked to this plant. Only six dead of 1,000, meaning six people died who were reported to have Wu Flu.

On Sunday, the president and CEO of Smithfield Foods, one of the nation’s largest meat-processing companies, warned of “severe, perhaps disastrous” consequences for the country’s meat supply chain following the closure of its Sioux Falls plant.

“The closure of this facility, combined with a growing list of other protein plants that have shuttered across our industry, is pushing our country perilously close to the edge in terms of our meat supply,” Kenneth M. Sullivan, Smithfield’s CEO, said.

Gah, that boldfaced is freakish coming from a meat packing executive. Does cockroach count as “protein”?

Speaking of the leadership, guess who owns Smithfield Foods?

Smithfield Foods Shareholders Approve $4.7 Billion Acquisition By China’s Shuanghui

htt ps://

By Amrutha Gayathri, 25 September 2013

Shareholders of Smithfield Foods Inc. (NYSE:SFD) approved the proposed $4.7 billion sale of the Smithfield, Va.-based company to China’s largest pork producer, Shuanghui International Holdings, sealing the biggest acquisition of an American company by a Chinese firm, Smithfield said in a statement on Tuesday. More than 96 percent of the votes were in favor of the transaction, which is valued at $7.1 billion including debt, and the merger will be complete by Sept. 26.

The purchase of Smithfield, the world’s largest pork producer by Shuanghui had stirred concerns about Chinese access to U.S. intellectual property such as agricultural technology and the long-term effect of U.S. agribusiness coming under foreign control. The deal had also sparked doubts about the deal’s impact on the safety and availability of heparin — an anticoagulant derived from pig intestines — and lawmakers had expressed concerns that Smithfield, under Shuanghui’s control, may be pressured to export its crude heparin product to China instead of supplying it to U.S. companies.

“This is a great transaction for all Smithfield stakeholders, as well as for American farmers and U.S. agriculture,” Larry Pope, president and CEO of Smithfield, said in a statement.

I don’t have the demographics of the infected; more likely Latino migrant labor than Chinese; but neither do I think it’s a coincidence that a China-operated meat packing plant turned out to be a hotbed of China-spawned disease.

But the real crime here is me, a white man, being rayciss and ultra-nationalist.

Smithfield’s association with Spanish packaged meat company Campofrio, in which Smithfield holds a 37 percent stake, remains undecided, as Shuanghui can either buy the remaining stake in Campofrio or reduce its stake to less than 30 percent, Reuters reported.

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, an executive panel that examines foreign investment for potential threats to national security and clears investment proposals within 30 days, approved the deal on Sept. 6 after subjecting it to an additional 45-day scrutiny.

Per Wikipedia, Shanghui Group, aka Shineway Group and WH Group, is currently the largest pork producer in the world. That probably does not include America’s Congress but since it signed off on this blatantly anti-American business deal, maybe it does.



It’s Official: Your Smartphone Is Now Your Leash

You smartphone dings. It’s an alert from the government: somebody flagged with Chinavirus passed within six feet of you. You are now required on penalty of law to be imprisoned, er, isolated for two weeks.

Apple and Google team up in bid to use smartphones to track coronavirus spread

By Alex Hern & Kari Paul, 10 April 2020

They’re not tracking you, they’re just tracking your phone! That means your privacy hasn’t been attacked!

Apple and Google announced on Friday an unprecedented collaboration to leverage smartphone technology to help trace and contain the spread of coronavirus.

Convergence uber alles! Just so you know, tech giants, serving the devil is like being a Highlander. There can be only one and despite that tattoo on your forehead, your name isn’t Satan.

The collaboration will open up their mobile operating systems to allow for the creation of advanced “contact-tracing” apps, which will run on iPhones and Android phones alike.

The apps would work by using the Bluetooth technology in mobile phones to keep track of every other phone a person comes into close contact with over the course of a day; if that person later finds out they have Covid-19, they can use the same system to alert all those people, dating back to before they would have become infectious.

No need to get up. The government will surely handle the notifications for you as a “convenience”.

The idea is to help national governments roll out these contact-tracing apps to allow lockdowns to be lifted earlier, by letting authorities much more readily identify new clusters of infection. The technology would also help those who have been exposed to a person with Covid-19 self-isolate before they themselves become infectious.

If you want to see your normal life again then give up your privacy!

Concerns are already being raised about the effectiveness of such technology and privacy concerns surrounding its implementation. The companies are opting to use Bluetooth to track who has been in contact with Covid-19 cases rather than location services to protect some user privacy, but advocacy groups are still wary.

Don’t get scared. Get a lead-lined carrying case.

“No contact-tracing app can be fully effective until there is widespread, free and quick testing and equitable access to healthcare,” Jennifer Granick, the surveillance and cybersecurity counsel at the ACLU said. “People will only trust these systems if they protect privacy, remain voluntary, and store data on an individual’s device, not a centralized repository.”

Translation, people will only trust these tracking devices if they don’t work.

Similar apps have already been trialled in nations including Singapore and China. In Europe, the Czech Republic says it will release such an app this month. Britain, Germany and Italy are also developing their own tracing tools.

But the apps have been held back by a combination of reduced uptake – the Singaporean app is used by 12% of the city, limiting its effectiveness – and difficulties in working around privacy protections built into the iOS and Android operating systems. It is those limits that Apple and Google will be lifting, the companies announced today.

Privacy and civil liberties activists have warned that such apps need to be designed so governments cannot abuse them to track their citizens. Apple and Google said in a joint announcement that user privacy and security are baked into the design of their plan.

With a CIA backdoor, using Chinese data infrastructure, written with astonishingly exploitable bugs and probably named “Zoom”.

Pam Dixon, executive director of the World Privacy Forum, said she will be looking closely at the companies’ privacy assurances and for evidence that any health data they collect will be deleted once the emergency is over.

“People are dying. We have to save lives. Everyone understands that,” she said. “But at some point, we’re going to have to understand the privacy consequences of this.”

Mizz Dixon demonstrates why women shouldn’t have authority over men when she refuses to directly confront this blatantly tyrannical agenda. She’s an “advocate of privacy” but still female & risk-averse in her hardwiring, so you can count on her until you need to count on her. Blah blah privacy, but “now people are dying!”

News flash, the Founders didn’t put restrictions on government so that government would be MORE effective.

Security experts also note that technology alone cannot effectively track down and identify people who may have been infected by Covid-19 carriers. Such efforts will require other tools and teams of public healthcare workers to track people in the physical world, they say. In South Korea and China, such efforts have included the use of credit card and public transit records.

God bless the civilly disobedient. It’s amazing what one can accomplish just by refusing to voluntarily comply with Evil, Inc.

Given the great need for effective contact tracing, the companies will roll out their changes in two phases. In the first, they will release software in May that lets public health authorities release apps for both Android and iOS phones. In the coming months, they will also build this functionality directly into the underlying operating systems.

On Friday, the companies released preliminary technical specifications for the effort, which they called Privacy-Preserving Contact Tracing.


Glenn Fine: A Fistful Of Dollars

California’s governor just unofficially announced the state’s secession from Orange Man, er, the United States of America. Why? For the love of money. Specifically, two trillion dollars of COVID-19 bailout pork.

Gavin Newsom Declares California a ‘Nation-State’

htt ps://

By Francis Wilkinson, 9 April 2020

Note this is an opinion piece, not a press release. On that note, here’s the author’s face:

The lower eyelids and crows-feet suggest sexual problems. The bulbous nose is thought to indicate an obsession with money. Associating with Bloomberg news isn’t breaking that one. Disorderly hair for disorderly thoughts. The mouth has those “gab lines” along the outside of the mouth area.

California this week declared its independence from the federal government’s feeble efforts to fight Covid-19 — and perhaps from a bit more. The consequences for the fight against the pandemic are almost certainly positive. The implications for the brewing civil war between Trumpism and America’s budding 21st-century majority, embodied by California’s multiracial liberal electorate, are less clear.

Seeing as Trump controls the military, I don’t fancy the chances of the Sodomite “budding majority”. Seeing how dependent the Left is upon welfare money, I don’t believe they can survive on their own… and unusually, I know that they know it. When your continued existence depends upon money to the parasites, you can’t risk cutting them off in order to set up independently.

Until, of course, one gets a better offer. But China has recently found itself short on bribe money thanks to certain trade wars followed by a certain oopsie in their biowarfare labs.

Speaking on MSNBC, Governor Gavin Newsom said that he would use the bulk purchasing power of California “as a nation-state” to acquire the hospital supplies that the federal government has failed to provide. If all goes according to plan, Newsom said, California might even “export some of those supplies to states in need.”

This is not new. California’s state government already has a blacklist of states in USA that employees are required to boycott. They say Texas is on it three separate times and Alabama, five.

“Nation-state.” “Export.”

Newsom is accomplishing a few things here, with what can only be a deliberate lack of subtlety.

Yes, most infantile tantrums lack subtlety. As do most Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers, the true epidemic in which America burns.

First and foremost, he is trying to relieve the shortage of personal protective equipment — a crisis the White House has proved incapable of remedying. Details are a little fuzzy, but Newsom, according to news reports, has organized multiple suppliers to deliver roughly 200 million masks monthly.

For a population of 50 million, that seems excessive. He mentioned exporting the surplus masks in the interview with Rachel Maddow but news flash, selling the remainder of a large order you purchased means you purchased too many.

Alternatively, it means all the price-gouging morons who got caught hoarding were only guilty of thinking too small.

Second, Newsom is kicking sand in the face of President Donald Trump after Newsom’s previous flattery — the coin of the White House realm — failed to produce results. If Trump can’t manage to deliver supplies, there’s no point in Newsom continuing the charade.

There’s only one reason a shark will cozy up to another shark, and that’s when there’s plenty of food to share. We already know what that “food” was that they cooperated on: the two trillion-dollar COVID-19 bailout bill.

Why did the Newscum shark have a falling out with the Trumpian shark so soon after that monster of a pork barrel was confirmed?


Trump removes watchdog tapped for $2T virus rescue oversight

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has removed the inspector general tapped to chair a special oversight board for the $2.2 trillion economic relief package on the coronavirus, the latest in a series of steps Trump has taken to confront government watchdogs tasked with oversight of the executive branch.

In the past four days, Trump has fired one inspector general tied to his impeachment, castigated another he felt was overly critical of the coronavirus response and sidelined a third meant to safeguard against wasteful spending of funds for businesses in economic distress.

“We’re seeing since Friday a wrecking ball across the IG community,” said Danielle Brian, executive director of the Project on Government Oversight, a watchdog group. On Friday, Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the inspector general of the intelligence community, and on Monday assailed a health and human services official who criticized the administration’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

Atkinson was the IG who triggered Russiagate in partnership with Colonel Vindeman and the FBI leadership. The guy’s career had been on borrowed time ever since Barr’s final report exonerated Trump.

On Tuesday, Trump removed Glenn Fine, the acting Defense Department inspector general and a veteran watchdog who had been selected by peers last month to oversee the economic aid package. Now it’s unclear who will oversee the rescue law.

Here are a few facts about Glenn Fine besides his being a peer-approved veteran watchdog:

-Harvard-educated lawyer

-Rhodes scholar

-Wife is Jewish

-Wife clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun, best known for writing the majority opinion in Roe v Wade.

What a small world it is at the top. Everybody attended Harvard, has a Jew in the family and half the inner circle are Rhodes scholars.

There is no chance that Glenn Fine isn’t Deep State. There is also no chance that he’s on Team Trump. Looks like POTUS didn’t want to give up his trillions that easily.

Trump’s latest move threatens to upend the rigorous oversight that Democrats in Congress demanded for the huge sums of money being pumped into the American economy because of the virus.

Hold that thought. We’ll be discussing the “Democrats’ rigorous oversight” of ballot harvesting in a moment.

It’s also part of a broader conflict between Trump, a president averse to outside criticism, and the watchdog community tasked with identifying mismanagement and problems inside government agencies.

Trump’s actions “only undermine the effectiveness of the pandemic response” legislation and the ability of inspectors general to do their job, Brian said.

Translation, Trump intends to control the purse strings instead of the other factions such as the Clinton Machine. That’s why Newscum and Trump had a falling-out as sudden as their falling in love.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized Trump’s removal of Fine, saying he is moving to “undermine oversight.” And Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer swiftly condemned Trump’s action.

“President Trump is abusing the coronavirus pandemic to eliminate honest and independent public servants because they are willing to speak truth to power and because he is so clearly afraid of strong oversight,” Schumer said in a statement.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who led Trump’s impeachment and subsequent Senate prosecution, told The Associated Press that Trump’s actions were “designed to neuter any kind of oversight of his actions and that of the administration during a time of national crisis, when trillions of dollars are being allocated to help the American people.”

Their cries prove that Glenn Fine was an agent of the Democrat Party Machine… the Biden faction, at least, not the Bernie faction.

Trump’s removal of Fine follows his late-night firing on Friday of Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general who forwarded to Congress a whistleblower complaint that ultimately led to the president’s impeachment in the House.

On Monday, the president also publicly condemned the acting Health and Human Services watchdog over a survey of hospitals about the coronavirus response.

Trump has bristled at the oversight of the coronavirus law, suggesting in a statement last month that some of the mandates from Congress were unconstitutional.

“I’ll be the oversight,” Trump declared as lawmakers were finalizing the rescue plan.

He has also drawn criticism for naming a White House lawyer to a new Treasury Department position overseeing $500 billion in coronavirus aid to industry.

On one hand, it’s Congress’ job to control the purse strings. On the other hand, I don’t see Congress appointing any of these people in the first place and the concept has been a dead letter since the Federal Reserve Act.

Your Congressperson’s itchy rash isn’t COVID-19. It’s accountability.

Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general and chair of a council of watchdogs, had moved quickly last month to appoint Fine the head of the new coronavirus oversight board.

An Obama-administration holdover. Trump’s primary failing as POTUS is his unwillingness to go scorched-earth upon the bureaucracy.

But Fine will no longer be able to serve in the role because Trump has nominated a replacement inspector general at the Pentagon and appointed an acting one to serve in Fine’s place, according to an email from an assistant Defense Department inspector general that was obtained by The Associated Press.

By way of scorched-earth example, Trump shouldn’t plug that leak. Instead, he should fire every single inspector general in the entire Federal Government then replace them with private-sector amateurs… CPAs and second-tier business executives so unqualified and untrustworthy that they didn’t spend ONE DAY at Harvard Law!

Don’t threaten to do it, Trump. Just do it. Then do it again. Maybe don’t appoint ANY replacements.

The demotion disqualifies Fine from serving on the oversight board, which was created by Congress to be the nexus of oversight for coronavirus funding. He will instead revert to the position of principal deputy inspector general.

See that? The termite is still there, chewing away. The problem is solved only for today.

House Oversight and Reform Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., said Trump’s actions are a “direct insult” to American taxpayers.

She’s right, although she thinks she’s lying. I don’t care who gets to spend that $2T, it shouldn’t exist at all. They joined forces to make it then fell apart over how to slice it up. Whoever wins, we Real Americans lose.

End segue.

Third, and this may be the most enduring effect, Newsom is sending a powerful message to both political parties. So far, the Republican Party’s war on democratic values, institutions and laws has been a largely one-sided affair, with the GOP assaulting and the Democratic Party defending. The lethal ruling this week by the U.S. Supreme Court’s Republican bloc, which required Wisconsin residents to vote in person during a pandemic that shut down polling stations, is a preview of the fall campaign. The GOP intends to restrict vote-by-mail and other legitimate enfranchisement to suppress turnout amid fear, uncertainty and disease.

One of the $2T bill’s earmarks was converting the entire nation over to voting by mail for the November election. The lack of witnesses and participation to the voting process guarantee easy vote fraud. That is probably the Democrats’ panic. They cooperated with the Trillion Pork Project thinking to rig the November election with the money, then Trump took control of the money and is now in position to “oversee” his own reelection.

Not that Trump would engage in vote fraud. If he’s up against Biden then he won’t need to.

In fact, I can prove the Democrats intended to commit vote fraud with the pork bill… by pointing out that they don’t want THEIR OWN votes counted remotely. Why not, if the system is reliable?


Pelosi reluctant to embrace remote voting in House: ‘We aren’t there yet’

By Marisa Schultz & Chad Pergram, 9 April 2020

Vote-by-mail for thee but not for me!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday the House of Representatives won’t implement remote voting anytime soon despite growing concern from bipartisan members that in-person voting is dangerous given the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

“Our rules are our best protection,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday when asked about modifying how the House votes. “… If the rules need to be changed, that has to be done carefully.”

Currently, there’s no method in place for lawmakers to vote from home or to conduct official business electronically.

Remote voting is touted by Democrats as a safe, reliable and convenient way to vote. In fact, the Wisconsin voting debacle was about Democrats wanting to extend the mail-voting period for six days “because Chinavirus”. But here, Pelosi doesn’t want remote voting implemented for herself EVEN WHEN SHE CLAIMED THAT HER LIFE WOULD BE ENDANGERED BY FLYING TO CONGRESS TO CAST THE VOTE!

Here’s that story but I won’t get into it:

A bipartisan group of moderate lawmakers known as the Problem Solvers Caucus called on House leadership in a letter this week to develop alternative voting methods. They pitched voting by phone, voting through video teleconference or installing voting machines in members’ district offices.

“We’re not there yet,” Pelosi said Thursday when asked about the proposal. “And we’re not going to be there no matter how many letters somebody sends — with all the respect in the world for that. And it won’t happen unless we can do it in a bipartisan way.”

“In a bipartisan way” means “under our control”.

Given the public safety risks of large gatherings, the House and Senate have sought to minimize the number of lawmakers needed in Washington by approving legislation through a voice vote and unanimous consent, which doesn’t require full attendance or a roll call vote.

But there are serious drawbacks to this approach. It only takes one dissenter to block a unanimous consent vote– as evidenced Thursday when Democrats blocked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s effort for $250 billion in new small business funding.

Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution also mandates that the House and Senate have a quorum to conduct business. A quorum is at least half of the current membership present on the floor.

It’s usually not an issue, unless someone makes it one.

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-K.Y., was dubbed the “most hated” man in Washington when he required the majority of the lawmakers to fly back to D.C. last month to pass the $2 trillion CARES Act, the massive coronavirus stimulus relief bill that leadership wanted to pass by a barebones voice vote for public health reasons.

Yay! It’s Massie again! It’s an honor to be hated by the “bipartisan” crowd.

Massie has called for remote voting. And until that’s in place, he’s determined to again prevent the House from taking votes without a quorum present.

Nooo, Massie! No remote voting ever! You know a Democrat is running an election when the rules do not allow for witnesses.

End segue.

At some point this civil war by other means, with the goal of enshrining GOP minority rule, will provoke a Democratic counteroffensive. Newsom, leader of the nation’s largest state, is perhaps accelerating that response, shaking Democrats out of denial and putting Republicans on notice. California, an economic behemoth whose taxpayers account for 15% of individual contributions to the U.S. Treasury, is now toning up at muscle beach.

I’m sure that when the time comes, the Potomac will cheerfully allow 15% of its annual tax receipts to walk away without interference. Although the way Newscum’s regime is running things, it might be closer to 10% by then. Proudly changing the economy’s climate!

What that means, of course, is left to the imagination. But not much is required to envision what might evolve.

True. No government in history ever quietly let its tax base wander off. This won’t be the exception.

Newsom, a former lieutenant governor who won [GQ: inherited] the top job in 2018, has used the “nation-state” phrase before. It’s a very odd thing to say. California, like its 49 smaller siblings, qualifies only as the second half. But it’s obviously no slip of the tongue. Democratic state Senator Scott Wiener, a leader in California’s cumbersome efforts to produce more housing, said soon after Newsom took office in 2019 that reorienting the state’s relationship to Washington is a necessity, not a choice.

“The federal government is no longer a reliable partner in delivering health care, in supporting immigrants, supporting LGBT people, in protecting the environment, so we need to forge our own path,” Wiener said. “We can do everything in our power to protect our state, but we need a reliable federal partner. And right now we don’t have that.”

I’ll just say that Wiener is even more aptly named than London Breed.

The statement appears prescient in light of the Trump administration’s failure to protect against a pandemic. Newsom was the first governor to issue a stay-at-home order, on March 19. Though his state is chock-full of cosmopolitan centers, and rural threats loom as well, California is weathering the virus in far better shape than New York, which has many fewer people and many more deaths.

I would not be surprised to learn the author of this piece is a child molester, if promoting sodomy is important enough to him to justify a civil war.

From Fort Sumter to Little Rock to Montgomery, the blueprint for states opposing federal control has a recurring theme. But there is no reason that states can’t adopt a racist playbook for other ends. If California and other 21st-century polities withhold revenue, or otherwise distance themselves from Washington’s control, legal and political battles will escalate. Republicans will have a legitimate constitutional argument — but it will be a morally tainted and politically illegitimate one so long as they continue to subvert majority rule.

A friendly reminder that the Constitution does not call for majority rule. The Founders hated the concept of democracy. But rules are for Dirt People! The Anointed shall reign free of obsolete patriarchy’s interference!

The central conceit of fallen human nature is that “we shall be as gods”. It’s not enough for the pedofeminist crowd to have control of California’s government. They lust for total control and their getting away with the lesser evils has only led them to look at greater evils.

Ah, if only those greater evils were affordable.



Mommy Health Czar Knows Best

Day by day, this quarantine looks less like a countermeasure against a lethal disease and more like a social engineering pet project for the Cloud People to amuse themselves with.

Would Elderly Be Safer At Home?

Los Angeles Times Dead Tree Edition

By Maura Dolan, 8 April 2020

With coronavirus sweeping though mursing homes at a deadly pace, Los Angeles County’s public health director on Tuesday took the extraordinary step of telling families it would be “perfectly appropriate” to pull loved ones out of long-term facilities for their safety.

More Than 120 nursing facilities and other communal living institutions in Los Angeles County alone are suspected of having coronavirus infections, including a home in Redondo Beach where four people have died and 38 others have confirmed cases.

What a pathetic attempt at wagging the dog. “More than 120 nursing facilities are SUSPECTED of C-virus infection and we know of one for sure.” Also, “four people out of 44 high-risk cases proved fatal.” Seems the lethality of C-virus is peaking around 1 in 10… in the worst-case scenarios.

Do you know why the government is trying to increase the rate of testing for C-virus? Because so few of the people who get it even have symptoms, the only way they can produce the needed hysteria for keeping the quarantine going is to report on the number infected, not the number who are actually sick.

I’ll never forget the headline “Number of People Infected With Coronavirus in the World Surpasses One Million”. That was the number infected, not the number sick and certainly not the number dead.

For posterity, here it is… from Bloomberg by way of MSN:

1 Million People Infected: How Coronavirus Spread Around the World

htt ps://

(Bloomberg) — The new coronavirus has now infected more than 1 million people across the world, a milestone reached just four months after it first surfaced in the Chinese city of Wuhan. More than 53,000 have died and 211,000 recovered in what has become the biggest global public health crisis of our time.

Even at Ground Zero, the rate of people getting sick from C-virus was 1 in 4.

Back to the LA Slimes,

Outbreaks have also been reported at homes across California, alarming officials because the residents there are at high risk of serious health problems or death.

Considering that the people in those nursing homes are put there specifically because they’re nearing death and therefore need specialized and/or 24-hour care in the first place, their concern is both legitimate and unworthy of being categorized as a concern.

I didn’t think I could get angrier about losing my job… but the thought that they cancel-cultured the entire economy so that dementia patients could enjoy their internal torment for a few extra months did the trick.

Maybe this isn’t just about the Baby Boomers. Atheists everywhere have a terror about confronting death. It’s why banning the death penalty is one of the first things they do.

Barbara Ferrer, the Los Angeles County public health director who offered the advice, said some families are able to care for an infirm loved one now because so many people are working from home. But she acknowledged the “horrible choice” faced by families who cannot care for their love ones at home.

I don’t know whether to laugh at Director Barbie’s independent rediscovery of society’s need for housewives, cry at her demand for us men to start doing the single-mom balancing act between work & high-needs family members or spit fire at her efforts to disemploy nursing home workers, too.

A spokeswoman for the Kensington in Redondo Beach, the facility whose outbreak sparked Ferrer’s comments, agreed tht some residents could go home with families, but others are better off staying put.

“In some instances, where an older adult is relatively independent and just needs help with meals and medications, it would be perfectly appropriate to bring them home, and we would welcome that decision,” said Andrea Obston. “In other instances, where the person is in need of professional care, it may not be appropriate, and it carries significant risks.”

That, coming from one of the few retirement homes to actually be hosting a C-virus outbreak.

[At] the Life Care Cener nursing home in Kirkland, Washington, site of one of the first COVID-19 outbreaks in the U.S., two-thirds of the residents and 47 workers fell ill, and 37 died.

From Wikipedia: 120 Total residents, 101 known infected, 34 dead.

180 Employees total, 70 had symptoms of any kind, 3 hospitalized, no deaths.

Dr. Edward Schneider, the former dean of the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, said he was reluctant to advise family members to bring a loved one home. People are typically in a nursing facility because they have complicated health issues, including dementia in many cases, which is what made it so difficult for their families to care for them in the first place.

“There are a lot of questions to ask,” SChneider said. “Are you equipped? Do you have the ability to do that?”

Even the reporter for this article went out of her way to find a man willing to mansplain why Mother Hen is not a one-size-is-ordered-by-the-health-director-to-fit-you-all solution.

There’s also the question of whether every family member is willing and able to rigorously follow social distancing recommendations, so they won’t be just a likely to infect their at-risk loved ones.

A good point. It’s going to happen inevitably so the smart move is let the disease run its course. Yes, there’ll be deaths, but if those deaths are going to happen anyway then better faster than eternally dragged out to the misfortune of the healthy.

[Charlene Harrington, professor emeritus at UC San Francisco’s School of Nursing] acknowledged that many nursing home residents are too impaired to be cared for by family even on a temporary basis, and many others have no family at all. So their have no choice but to stay where they are.

But that isn’t stopping her from playing Mommy Knows Best.

Wasserman, who is lobbying state officials to set up isolated facilities – empty htels, dormitories, cruse ships – for nursing home patients who test positive for COVID-19, agreed that pulling a loved one out of a facility is an option only for the lucky few.

“I would estimate that somewhere between 10% and 20% of nursing home residents could be cared for by their families at home,” Wasserman said.

Why, Wasserman? Do professional nursing facilities not have in-house methods for handling disease? The flu comes around every year, you know, and C-virus spreads in the same ways. But no, even “Professor Emeritus” Wasserman’s first instinct on seeing people suffer is begging her husband… here, the California State Government… to “do something” in order to nurture them.

No matter how useless or expensive “doing something” turns out to be.

Wimminz gonna wimmin not matter how many certifications and titles get stuffed into her head.

How Stella Didn’t Get Her Groove Back

Bonus: A snowflake explains why feminists hoarded toilet paper for the Wuhan Whoop!

What Living In A Buddhist Monastery Taught Me About Getting Through Quarantine

By Liana Gergely, 4 April 2020

A monastery taught her the importance of toilet paper? Seriously?

The monastery is in India… oh. Ohhhh.

When I told my Jewish, slightly over-protective, hyper-logical mother that I had decided to spend my college semester abroad learning to meditate at a Buddhist monastery in India, her concerns, comments and questions were as follows ― numerically ordered to indicate her level of worry:

What if you decide to convert to Buddhism and stop being a Jew?

What if my grandchildren aren’t Jewish because you’re now a Buddhist and no longer a Jew?

If your beliefs can’t survive contact with foreign beliefs then you’re less a believer than a hostage with Stockholm Syndrome.

How are you going to manage your anxiety?

Why wouldn’t you just go to France, where you speak the language?

Why can’t you meditate in America?

What will you do if you get sick?

Is it like Eat Pray Love?

Remember that one.

Is this really necessary?

How often can you call home?

And most importantly, do they have toilet paper?

A father would have asked: why are you paying college tuition to be voluntarily locked inside a jail cell in one of the most unhygenic nations on Earth? You threw a fit the last time I sent you to your room.

My reasoning behind the choice to spend my semester abroad this way had been less linear ― more driven by gut and curiosity than by the constant ping-pong of “what ifs” that lives inside my brain during most waking hours.

Female confirmed.

As I sat in the dean’s office finishing my final registration papers and second-guessing myself into going to Paris or Dublin instead, something in me signed on the dotted line faster than my brain could tell my pen to halt. When else am I going to get a chance to live in a Buddhist monastery in the northeast of India with 36 other college kids trying to figure out what life is all about?

I’ll guess her life was about getting lots and lots of exotic dick at her trust fund’s expense. What was her degree in, anyway? Womens’ Studies? That explains a semester in a monastery even less. Maybe if it had been a convent… OUCH! My brain blew a fuse imagining that one!

I wish I could tell you that it proved the most magical three months of my life. That I came back glowing, lighter, relieved of my neuroses and a fan of curry. That I ate and that I prayed and that I loved. That meditation stilled me and cleared the gunk. But that isn’t the truth.

Hmm. Eat… Pray… Love… where have I seen that before?

Instead, I found myself face-to-face with my own anxiety ― with my fear of uncertainty, with my attachment to material comfort, with my shaky sense of self, with my inability to sit still, and with the ways I didn’t like myself.

Yes, Stella, that’s what meditation in a remote location is supposed to do: force you to confront yourself with no escape. Force you to face and overcome your flesh. Even Scripture teaches that a man who controls his emotions is stronger than a king who conquers a city.

The months I spent in India left me unhinged and dismantled.

She means “unchanged”.

So much so that I had to come back to the U.S. three weeks earlier than the rest of the group, my insomnia and panic attacks making it impossible for me to continue to the independent study part of the program.

She means “solitary confinement”.

It turns out, as many have said, this is exactly what’s supposed to happen on a spiritual pilgrimage to India.

Here’s a big salute to those Indian Buddhists. They locked down that shipment of Spring Breakers so hard that Slutwalk Stella couldn’t get her groove on.

Your states of mind are reflected back to you more loudly than you can bear to see them. And you can’t look away. It makes you raw, pulls off a layer of your skin. The impulse to let the layer grow back is almost a compulsive urge. But they tell you not to let it grow back. They tell you to let yourself stay exposed and vulnerable. They say this is how you learn to tolerate yourself. And then eventually, love yourself.

“Clearly,” I thought, “these people have never suffered from an anxiety disorder.”

Clearly, Stella didn’t understand Buddhism any more than she understood the concept of “monastery”.

At the monastery, we lived like monks ― no phone, no computer, no TV. We were each given one plate, one spoon, one fork and one knife, which we had to wash after every meal and bring with us to the next one. We followed the five Buddhist precepts, which I am certain were not created with angsty college kids in mind ― no alcohol, no sex, no gossip, no stealing and no killing (this one was the least difficult to abide by, though the mosquitos were incessant).

Slutwalk Stella going to a remote monastery in a foreign land was surprised that drunken sex is not permitted and the Wi-fi is horrible. Shoulda done Paris instead!

Wait, was she not allowed to kill the mosquitoes?

Despite the early bedtime, the days felt endless. Aside from the basic tasks of daily living, there was nothing to really do at the monastery. Nothing to plan or schedule or scroll through ― the concept of productivity rendered almost entirely obsolete. The days seemed tranquil and cozy and pleasant. My brain, on the other hand? Not so much.

Do not speak of productivity, feral female. You are not worthy.

I can’t help but see parallels between my time in the monastery and the quarantine we find ourselves in now ― the toilet paper is scarce, it’s unclear when one day ends and another begins, and my anxiety is once again by my side, begging for attention.

Feminists hoarded toilet paper for Kung Flu because the last time she went through quarantine, it was in a cesspit Third World country during an attempt at the Eat Pray Love lifestyle!

This time is not voluntary, but in many ways, it is an opening. For those of us who are being forced to spend more time alone, this is an opportunity to go inward, to get quiet, to get intimate with our own, often unruly, minds.

Although I am living at home with my mom…

Where’s Daddy?

…being with my own thoughts this closely, for this many days, can be excruciatingly uncomfortable. In some moments of antsiness and boredom and low self-esteem, I would rather do anything other than sit here. I want to grab for things I am convinced can make the loneliness better ― productivity which leads to validation from others, busyness which keeps me moving just fast enough so I don’t have to acknowledge that I feel sad, scheduling back-to-back virtual hangouts so I can quell the small voice inside that tells me that people don’t like me.

Nobody likes you, Liana, especially the Buddhist monks when they realized you thought their monastery was Motel Sex As Seen On TV. If there’s one person this world doesn’t need, it’s a Jewish princess raised by a single mother to whine about her insecurities on HuffPo.

But thanks for the freak show. As you’ve discovered, entertainment helps make quarantine bearable.

When I left India, I had a sense that it was a gift that my crutches and coping mechanisms were not available to me. Even in these difficult moments, I feel the same gratitude for this quarantine. I have no choice but to self-soothe instead of relying on external fixes. I am infusing my heart with courage as I practice tolerating my uncomfortable and unpleasant emotions without numbing them, escaping from them or distracting myself.

The women who submit to a husband don’t have to self-soothe. They have a man who will care for them in hard times. I might be out of work but here’s a fact, I have no intention of starving.

Every morning, I’ve been rereading something one of the monks told me after evening meditation ― “Hardship is the greater of the two blessings. The purifying rather than the blissful, insightful ones that we all like. The ones that make it so hard you want to run away are perhaps the blessings we are all waiting for ― the ones we don’t want, but really need.”

Christians have a high regard for Buddhists because we both agree that controlling oneself is of great importance, as is patient endurance in suffering. Unlike Buddhism, we do it to resist a world that has gone wrong rather than to make peace with it.

At the monastery, the idea that there was nowhere to go completely terrified me. In quarantine, I am working to see it as a gentle reminder that I am good enough as I am, that this moment is good enough as it is, and that I am right where I am supposed to be. “There’s no rush, sweetheart. You’re OK and safe right here,” I whisper to myself when the restlessness overtakes me.

Dorothy did it better in the Wizard of Oz. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.” Except it’s not a home without a father, now is it? It’s a welfare statistic.

Liana has all the money that money can buy, but she can’t be complete on her own because God did not design her for that.


The Pastors Who Defy Church Shutdown Orders

It shouldn’t escape anybody’s attention that unlike Costco and the liquor store, churches have been universally declared “non-essential businesses” for the Wu Flu Season. Me, I’ve noticed personality changes in myself as a consequence of not having ANY social contact for too long. Texting and Skype do not count as social contact.

Straight-up truth: the American GOVERNMENT has no authority whatsoever to order CHURCHES how to do their business of worshiping God. Separation of Church and State, remember? Remember it’s unacceptable for a Christian to so much as pray in public or erect a memorial cross on State property? How is it, then, that the State is ordering churches to stop congregating in the name of God on THEIR own property?

The lies get dropped so quickly when they’re no longer useful, one must train himself to notice the sudden silences.

Anyway, here’s a selection of the pastors defying quarantine orders and their motivations for doing so.

FULL INTERVIEW: Central Pastor hosts more than 1,800 at Sunday service amid pandemic

FULL INTERVIEW: Central Pastor hosts more than 1,800 at Sunday service amid pandemic

By Abbi Rocha, 24 March 2020

CENTRAL, La. (FOX 44) (LOCAL 33) The Life Tabernacle Church in Central hosted 1,825 people at their March 22 Sunday service.

Despite government mandated “stay at home orders” Pastor Spell says it is crucial the church stays open.

[This interview] was conducted by Fox 44/Local 33’s Abbi Rocha after Spell’s Tuesday night service on March 17th.

Why are you continuing to stay open?

TS: “We continue to stay open we have our doors open as a church as a right to assemble. We reserve the right to worship God. We take all the necessary precautions of disinfecting our building, keeping people at a distance. These are our religious convictions and this is why we continue to operate as a church.”

That’s exactly right. We DO reserve the right to worship God.

After last night (March 18, 2020) there were 100 people in the same room many people consider that to be irresponsible, what is your response to that?

TS: “Is it any more irresponsible than people going to costco where there’s a thousand people? Or walmart where there’s a thousand people? I’m not posing any more of a threat than the people who are at the mall right now. Or any place of business. It seems to me the church is being persecuted because we are an easier target than those major companies who are keeping their lights on and still operating. We operate strictly by tithing and offering, support of our parishioners. We do not have the luxury of businesses who can operate by any other means of sales. If we don’t keep our lights on we are not operating financially.”

I’m sympathetic to staying open because of financial need. If cooperating with State decrees will destroy one’s livelihood then one should disobey the State.

Remember why you exist, American governments: as a servant of the people.

Tell me about the faith and beliefs of your church?

TS: “So as a church we are apostolic in doctrine, Pentecostal in spirits. So Pentecostal is known for lively worship, lively preaching prophesying, laying hands on the sick, people receiving healings in miracles.

Stop it, Pastor Tony. Just stop it. If your beliefs were legit then you Pentecostals would have put hospitals out of business a long time ago.

In fact, if God provided you with miraculous healings on demand like a Dungeons & Dragons cleric, there would be no atheists. Everybody would be lining up to worship God… in return for gibmedats.

That is why God DOES NOT do what you believe He does. He doesn’t want to be the Cosmic Vending Machine. He doesn’t want followers who require regular paychecks to sustain their “faith”.

Did He do miracles through the Apostles? Yes, but spare a moment to notice that Saint Paul was beaten like a pinata in between the times he was curing plague just by walking down the street. You sitting in your air-conditioned wooden box invoking divine favors like magic spells, are no Saint Paul.

We are Pentecostal in our experience. We are apostolic in our doctrine, and we are a basic new testament church. We are the first new testament church from the book of acts. We are also christian in faith, we relate more with people.”

How does your faith apply to this virus and what’s going on right now?

TS: “To the virus, like any other virus, influenza, human immunodeficiency virus, We are not going to live in fear. We are not going to seclude ourselves or go into reclusivity. Right now the majority of my church have been sent home for 30 days. Restaurants have closed, waiters and waitresses don’t have an income and are living in fear and torment right now because they don’t know how they are going to make ends meet. We are the last strong hold in society that’s giving some sanity to the insanity that’s around us. So that’s where we stand on that issue. We are in hospital, we pray for people that are sick, we go into hospitals, psychiatric wards on a daily basis, praying for people, laying hands on people, that’s what the church’s mission is in this time of peril.”

Reasonably said. Deep Staters like Fauci have so little regard for the fact that humans are a social species that one wonders if they’re skin suits or hypocrites.

The police and National Guard have threatened to stop your services, what is your response to that?

TS: “The police did come to my service last night, he did not come into my service, an usher summoned me outside to talk to him. He was kind, he was respectful as we were to him, he was doing his job, we were doing our job, he said the National Guard would be deployed to break up groups of 50 or more. That was as of up to an hour ago, I received a call from the Governor’s Office and the National Guard, a representative who said that is not their job. To cause panic with our parishioners, they will not disperse groups of 50 or more. There’s more to be said on that subject but that is the truth. That was the news up until about an hour ago. But we received assurance that we are not being persecuted for gathering and the National Guard would not be deployed to us to break up our gathering. That may have been the case last night, but not today.”

He’s been charged with six misdemeanors thus far. Also, Tony has a reputation as an anti-LGBT activist strong enough that my research came across a hatchet job from a Sodomite news site.

Do you believe the virus is politically motivated?

TS: “It’s a real virus. People are dying with the virus. People are dying with influenza. People are dying with cancer every day, all that is real. We don’t go into hiding because people have cancer. We don’t go into hiding because people have influenza. Which is probably more contagious than covid-19 which has been around longer than the past three weeks, whenever it has been politicized, so that was my statement. It shouldn’t be taken out of context that it isn’t real. It is real, but we pray for people that have the virus. Annoint them will oil, pray for them we believe in God to give them recovery, and healing. That’s the churches mission. That’s our purpose in the Earth to give calm, where there is no calm and be overcomers when there is no overcome.

Hehheh, there’s some works of God. Calming people down from the media-induced hyperfrenzy? Certain important people aren’t going to like that.

I recently tried to calm down an elderly Chinese couple in my neighborhood. They were freaked out that Chinavirus could be spread by a stranger brushing past you. They thought the C-virus would hop onto your clothes, then crawl up to your face and squirm into your nasal passages like in a bad Syfy Channel movie. I don’t think I reached them but at least I tried. Methinks the neighborhood porch curmudgeon has less credibility with them than press releases from the White House, which is a tragedy.

Incidentally, sitting on your porch watching the neighborhood go by is a way you can make yourself available to do this kind of reassurance without breaking quarantine.

No matter what happens in the coming week, will you still hold services as normal?

TS: “We are going to continue to have services, our doors are open, we take the necessary precautions of disinfecting, If you don’t want to come to church, you don’t have to come. We are not mandating anybody, Everybody that’s here is here on their own free will. They know the risks, there’s a society that is up in arms, they are out of school right now, there’s nobody feeding their children. They are not being educated. That’s unrest. They’re losing their jobs. They have no income. Nobody can sustain that for a 30 day period. There may be a stimulus package i’ve heard that’s going to be sent out to those people. The church doesn’t get stimulus packages, We are 501C3, Federal exempt. We operate strictly on our own accord with no help from the goverment. So we have to keep our lights on. We have to keep finances coming in.”

Is there anything else you would like to add?

TS: “I want to let our law enforcement know that we are praying for them. Our government officials know that we are praying for them, we are behind them 100 percent. We are not going to crater to any spirits of fear, or torment.”

Pastor Tony is solid. His heart is exactly where it should be. He’s defying the quarantine orders with eyes open and making informed decisions, to care for the spiritual aspect of human life that our Cloud People rulers have completely neglected.

Tony Spell is good people.

The Americans defying Palm Sunday quarantines: ‘Satan’s trying to keep us apart’

By Michelle Conlin & Rich McKay, 4 April 2020

“Satan’s trying to keep us apart, he’s trying to keep us from worshipping together. But we’re not going to let him win,” Kelly Burton, pastor at Lone Star Baptist Church in Lone Star, Texas, wrote in a post on Facebook.

Lone Star has been holding services in the parking lot – what it calls “Church on the Lot” – and will do so on Palm Sunday.

When I tried to source this, the pastor of LSBC, Lone Star, TX is Rick Monds. Not sure what’s up with that, but this from their Facebook puts an entertaining light on their meeting in the parking lot.

One supposes they’re technically complying with the order by not meeting indoors while disobeying the spirit of “no more church” by inviting a Christian biker gang to join them outside. I approve!

Continuing with Reuters,

Rob McCoy [is] the mayor of Thousand Oaks, in the Los Angeles area, but also the pastor of Godspeak Calvary Chapel, where he will offer communion on Palm Sunday – though encouraging worshipers to stand six feet apart.

“It’s very important theologically that communion not be taken alone,” said McCoy. “What we are doing is exercising our inalienable rights. Communion is non-negotiable for us.”

Hmm, I don’t like his eyes… guarded on the left side, with lowered upper eyelids, plus a dispassionate, crooked mouth… and I’d be half-right because he’s a politician. But the good kind of politician, apparently. Physiognomy isn’t destiny.

I’ve said it before, California is a huge state. Not all of our bureaucrats are Communist perverts.

“Communion is non-negotiable”, what a different attitude from “do-it-yourself”.

McCoy resigns from City Council

McCoy resigns from City Council

By Kyle Jorrey, 5 April 2020

Rob McCoy is stepping down from the Thousand Oaks City Council.

The pastor, who caused a wave of consternation and anger Saturday when his intentions to host communion at his Newbury Park church on Palm Sunday in defiance of state and county orders related to the coronavirus went public, tendered his resignation sometime after 10 last night, according to city officials.

“Councilmember Rob McCoy has resigned his seat on the Thousand Oaks City Council effective immediately,” the city said in a statement released this morning.

Thousand Oaks does not directly elect its mayor. Councilmen take turns on a rotating basis, which explains the swiftness with which the mayor’s role was re-filled:

In an interview with the Acorn following McCoy’s announcement, Mayor Al Adam said McCoy told the council he needed to step down because his religious beliefs were in conflict with his sworn oath to uphold state and local law and he didn’t want the council to have to deal with the fallout. McCoy has served as pastor at Calvary Chapel Thousand Oaks (now Godspeak Calvary Chapel) since 2001.


Seriously, that is most impressive.

A man with status in both the church and the government found his two positions in conflict. Instead of riding both sides of the fence, he resigned his worldly power rather than compromise on his belief that communion is non-negotiable even in times of crisis… which will likely see him arrested in a week by the very government whose leadership he just resigned for conscience’s sake.

“He believes what he believes. He’s got his conviction,” Adam said of McCoy, who was first elected to the council in 2015 in a special election to fill a vacancy. He was reelected in 2016.

Adam said he felt McCoy’s decision to resign was the right thing to do.

“He can’t be an elected official and at the same time go forward with this (in-person communion in defiance of state/county orders),” said Adam, who for the past two weeks has been urging Thousand Oaks residents to stay home and cease all non-essential travel. “Now he’s a private citizen.”

During his Sunday sermon, which was live-streamed on Youtube (the sanctuary remained closed ahead of the planned 1 p.m. start of communion), McCoy said the church had taken all precautions to ensure the safety of people coming to take the sacrament, including putting up markers to enforce strict social distancing, limiting the number of chairs in the 400-seat church to 10 and cleaning the sanctuary. The communal elements (bread and grape juice) were to be set up on a table so visitors could take the items themselves without having to make physical contact with anyone, according to a message on the church website.

“In no way do I want to endanger anyone in this community—to the contrary,” he said. “I believe man to be a spiritual being.

He already bet his job as a senior government official on that. He might soon be betting his very freedom.

McCoy is good people.

McCoy said the U.S. was founded on the idea of religious freedom and that he was choosing to exercise that liberty.

“I am in compliance and respect of authority. I will honor all (Centers for Disease Control) requirements, but I cannot submit to the authority that declares the church to be nonessential. It’s that simple,” he said.

OHHHH YEAAAAAH BAY-BEE! This is the Christianity that I’ve been looking for!

Of stepping down from the council, the pastor said: “I didn’t desire to resign from the council. I love serving the city. I’ve tried to do my best but this comes into conflict and I completely understand and I don’t want to burden the other council members. But this calling is critical and I believe this to be of utmost importance.

I firmly believe if rights aren’t exercised, they’re lost.”

Some other local elected officials didn’t see it that way.

“Bringing large groups together is wrong,” County Supervisor Linda Parks said. “It endangers lives, including our brave deputies and healthcare workers.”

So many people called the county’s COVID compliance hotline Saturday and Sunday to report the church that a new message was recorded.

“If you are calling in reference to the planned activities at Godspeak Calvary Chapel church today, thank you, we are aware and we are investigating,” the message stated as of 12 p.m. Sunday. “County administration, public health and the public information officer will address the situation as needed.”

HAHAHAAAA! Satan had to leave a message on his anonymous-tips hotline! “We know about him already.”

In the city’s official press release announcing McCoy’s resignation, Adam praises McCoy for his leadership following the Borderline mass shooting and Woolsey fire in 2018.

“Rob was a voice of strength and healing as the city recovered from the two simultaneous tragedies,” the statement says. “I appreciate his contributions and wish him and his family well. While these circumstances are unfortunate, the remaining members of the council and I are very much focused on moving on.”

Despite the praise, Adam said neither he nor the City of Thousand Oaks condone McCoy’s decision to host the communion, which is set to take place today from 1 to 4 p.m. after the church’s 11 a.m. Palm Sunday services are live-streamed.

“My messaging has been clear,” the mayor said. “My desire is for residents to stay safe and stay at home.”

In a Youtube video posted Saturday, McCoy said the church planned to adhere to strict CDC guidelines.

To make that possible, members said, the church building on Via Las Brisas in Dos Vientos will be open for three hours so worshipers can filter through the church one by one, 6 feet apart. After taking communion, they can either exit out the side of the sanctuary or sit briefly in one of the chairs (each one 6 feet apart). Members who are sick or at-risk have been asked to stay home.

McCoy said it will be no different than people waiting in line at the grocery store.

Several members of McCoy’s congregation told the Acorn they supported their pastor’s decision.

“In Scripture it says there’s healing in communion and I think we all need that, body, soul and spirit, at this time because a lot of people are experiencing depression,” said Carol Roberg, 77, of Camarillo.

“This is a chance to come together and be responsible and use common sense,” said Tom Bennett, a retired Ventura County sheriff’s sergeant. “We don’t want to get anybody sick, but the ability to come together and celebrate and honor God is so vital for our mental well being.”

Because of the timing, McCoy’s seat is expected to remain vacant until after the November election, the city said in its statement.

Back to the Reuters article,

About 400 miles (644 km) north of Thousand Oaks, police in Lodi, California, interrupted a service late last month at the Cross Culture Christian Center, an evangelical church with about 80 regular attendees, to tell members they were violating stay-at-home orders.

“Last month” counting back from this article’s date of 4 April? San Joaquin County didn’t ratify the emergency order until 17 March. That is suspiciously fast police work.

They have since been given a warning posted on the church door, a “Notice of Public Nuisance,” demanding the center stop holding services, according to local officials.

“This is a serious public health threat,” said city spokesman Jeff Hood.

So why was the church called a public nuisance, not a public health threat?

Still, the pastor plans to hold services on Palm Sunday, said the church’s attorney, Dean Broyles.

“Simply put, no, we’re not going to obey it,” Broyles told Reuters. “The virus does not suspend our constitutional rights, the right to assemble, freedom of religion and freedom of speech.”

Broyles said the church is taking steps to mitigate risks, including sanitizing the building before services and asking that the elderly or those with health problems remain at home.

“We’re much safer than a Walmart or grocery store,” said Broyles, who is also president of the National Center for Law & Policy, a legal advocacy group based in San Diego. “Think about it, you’re crammed into (store) aisles inches apart from other shoppers. Here we’re sitting six feet apart.”

That could explain a lot about the government cracking down hard & fast on this little church, if they had already been fighting the government to the point of having a national legal foundation on speed-dial.


Lodi church defying stay-at-home order receives notice from county, officials say

LODI, Calif. (KTXL) — San Joaquin County’s interim public health officer issued an order prohibiting public assembly at a Lodi church after officials say church members defied a previous request.

According to the city of Lodi, the police department had previously requested that Cross Culture Christian Center members suspend their meetings since it “violated the County’s public health order prohibiting gatherings.”

“It’s unfortunate we have to go to these lengths when the threat of COVID-19 is so clear,” said City Attorney Janic Magich in Friday’s press release. “It is gratifying, however, to see other churches in Lodi understand the responsibility to protect public health by suspending in-person gatherings.”

The new order was issued Friday and applies to Bethel Open Bible Church, which is where the Cross Culture Christian Center had continued to hold meetings, according to officials.

The Cross Culture Christian Center leases its gathering space from the Bethel Open Bible Church, which the city says has been cooperating with the city and county’s efforts.

Mystery solved. It’s not an ongoing Church-State feud. Bethel Church called in the police because it obeyed the order and their tenant-church didn’t.

We believers are not supposed to call in the secular authorities to judge one another on matters of conscience!

Police first noticed the members meeting on March 25 and approached them to inform them they were violating the stay-at-home order. On March 29, the city says officers noticed they were still meeting.

Either the Lodi police were bored as puck or the landlord kept calling them in. It’s hard to “notice” a church of eighty people… many of whom, I suspect, have not been attending lately.

“We hold truly to the belief that the church should be meeting as much as possible,” Pastor Jon Duncan told FOX40.

The church’s attorney sent the city of Lodi and the Lodi Police Department a cease and desist letter citing their religious freedom had been violated.

“We simply believe that constitutional rights are not suspended by a virus,” said attorney Dean Broyles.

Duncan said his church had already implemented safety measures such as hand-washing stations and spacing out seating.

Bethel OBC has now been ordered to close entirely as a result of Duncan’s refusal to obey the order.

Feeriker, you’ll like this. I checked their website:

…and it’s a temporary website with only two items on it: an invitation to the online service and as you predicted, directions on how to continue tithing while they’re closed.

There’s a video of Pastor John Duncan for the interested in the following link, although the article itself discusses our next example:

Renegade Sacramento-area church services: One goes ahead with a crowd, second parish cancels

By Sam Stanton and Dale Kasler

Defying orders from public health officials and California Gov. Gavin Newsom to avoid large gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic, a church in Roseville held a two-hour service Sunday morning attended by dozens of parishioners.

Abundant Life Fellowship Church went ahead as promised, blocking outsiders and media from coming inside or interviewing attendees, but allowing parishioners to file in from more than 40 vehicles that were in the parking lot near downtown Roseville.

Pastor Doug Bird had not been available for an interview since Friday, but posted a vow to continue on the church Facebook page.

“If you are a visitor (not a part of ALF) and plan on traveling here to ‘shame’ us, SHAME ON YOU!” he wrote. “In these dangerous times you will be putting our church community at GREAT risk! YOU ARE NOT WELCOMED AT THIS CHURCH.”

Sweet. None dare call THIS church seeker-friendly! That’s a compliment. Nothing cheapens the Gospel more than those dying-gasp church marquees “Come as you are! You are welcome here!” except maybe not displaying the Cross because it can be offensive.

Order him to apologize, Governor Newscum. I dare you!

Pastors, PLEASE stop posing with your wives. She is not your “better half” as either a priest of God or a man who still wears pants.

…Uh-oh. She already holds the title of Pastor. Indeed, it’s a fully cucked Church with multiple female “assistant pastors”. Sad that a clergyman can stand against the world yet not against Original Sin itself.

When God gave Eve a chunk of Adam’s rib cage, the symbology is that women will always be a weak point in a man’s armor.

I don’t mind if a church chooses to close. That’s between its leadership and God. But the principle must be upheld, that the government has no authority to command the churches on how they worship. Like Peter before the Sanhedrin, we must obey God rather than men.

No church should be punished for violating this quarantine. If clergy allow this for “sensible reasons” then it’ll set the precedent we’ll choke on. Notice that our rulers don’t even consider Christianity a religion anymore. It’s a “faith tradition”. And sometimes, traditions need to be modernized….


Reviewing Matt Walsh’s Book “Church Of Cowards”

I’d do more book reviews if I didn’t have to purchase the books. So few of them live up to my unreasonably high standards of “no feminism, moral relativity or necrophilia” that I only want to buy it after I’ve proofed it like a commissar. Obviously not an effective business model.

Thus, I’ll review a review of Walsh’s new book.

Provocative. Accurate, as far as the title goes. But Walsh is one of those pundits who like a groundhog, notices the problems in modern society then retreats into his Narrative-approved burrow. Which makes him either a very bad choice or a very good choice for writing a book on cowardice.

Matt Walsh warns complacent Christians: Tolerance and acceptance are not biblical virtues

By Samuel Smith, 23 March 2020

Ahh, a journalist with a name that sounds Norte Americano. He even spells it correctly! There’s my unreasonably high standards again.

Conservative Christian commentator Matt Walsh is condemning complacent Christians in America, saying that, in some cases, Christians are called to be intolerant.

Nothing is more intolerant than truth. This world offers ten million lies but only one truth. We’ll tolerantly let you go to Hell if you reject the truth of Christ, up to the point where you do evil upon innocents. Ideally speaking.

Walsh, a nationally known podcast host and writer for the conservative online website The Daily Wire, is warning that many Christians in America today are constructing their own religion based on cherrypicked ideas from the Bible that support their agenda of tolerance and inclusion.

The last thousand warnings didn’t work but this time, the warning is being given by a pundit with a beard! You know his advice is valuable because you have to buy his book to get it!

Walsh released his second book earlier this month titled Church of Cowards: A Wake-Up Call to Complacent Christians.

He told The Christian Post that the book offers his “diagnosis of the problem that most Christians recognize in our culture.”

“If you look at the statistics, we know that the number of Christians is declining while the number of secular atheists is going up,” Walsh told CP in a recent phone interview.

“I think we also know that the problem is even worse than the numbers suggest. If you were to talk to the professed Christians [in the U.S.], a startling percentage of them don’t actually believe in some of the essential doctrines of the Christian faith.”

Chino isn’t just a backwater city in California. “CHristians In Name Only”.

A 2017 survey from the American Culture and Faith Institute shows that only about one in 10 Americans hold a biblical worldview even though nearly half of them claim to lead a Christian life. Among millennials, only four percent have a biblical worldview.

Thus far, preaching to the choir. But it’s not enough to talk about statistics and concepts. Does Walsh dare to use the deplorable word, “Evil”?

Various factors can play a role in a person’s faith and worldview formation. According to Walsh, those include parents, the church, education and culture.

Christians do not have a worldview. We have a God, a real one. THE real one.

“And that’s a problem because the culture itself is so aggressively hostile to Christian faith and very determined to, especially with kids, convert them into secularism and relativism,” Walsh argued.

Evil, Walsh. The word you’re reaching for is EVIL. Our culture is evil because it is willfully disobedient to God.

“That’s an enormous problem because you’ve got so many Christians who don’t really know what their faith professes or what their faith even is. And if you don’t know what you believe in, exactly, then you’re not going to be able to maintain those beliefs.”

There’s a term for them. FALSE CHRISTIANS. Call them false Christians because that is who they are. They are not “Christians who don’t know what their faith is.”

Walsh is talking about false Christians like a Cuckservative talks about his politician. “He shouldn’t be doing this. We warn him repeatedly of what’s going to happen to society but he keeps doing it. I wonder why he can’t see what we do?”

Answer is, Mister Politician knows perfectly well that he’s doing evil. He loves to do evil because evil is fun and profitable!

(For the curious, that’s James Martin, a Jesuit currently preaching sodomy with the Church’s blessing.…out-of-context-on-homosexuality

February 8, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Bible’s condemnation of homosexual acts should be taken in “context” with Biblical times, Jesuit Father James Martin told Georgetown University students recently.

Martin said as well that Catholics who support gay “marriage” should have no problem considering themselves Catholic, despite having chosen to reject Church teaching.

He could as easily be a Baptist as a Catholic these days.


Similarly, false Christians go to church because they benefit from Sunday Morning Group Therapy. Why would they learn Scripture when they’re already getting what they want from their “faith tradition”?

At a time when there is increasing societal and political pressure for people to be accepting of Evil the same-sex relationships and LGBT lifestyles, Walsh said that Christians with a superficial understanding of the Gospel are picking out things from the Bible that they like and “confirm what they already want to believe.”

“They kind of construct their own religion for themselves based on this amalgamation of out-of-context verses. And that’s a big problem because the Bible is so long and vast and diverse,” he explained.

“It’s not even really a book. It’s a library of books. And there’s so much in it, that if you’re going to go in and throw context to the wind, you can find anything you want. You can find justification for anything. I think that’s how a lot of people are approaching the Bible.”

No, you cannot find justification for anything in Scripture. That’s such a stupid belief that it disqualifies Walsh from speaking about Scripture entirely, if he thinks it really does mean whatever the reader wants it to mean.

Those “LGBT lifestyles” he mentioned, for example? Sexual perversion is not a context-sensitive topic in Scripture. There is no argument to be made that God will not butcher their unrepentant souls for eternity. And yet, all those Chinos believe it’s just something that makes God sad on occasion. That is not “subjectively interpreting the Bible”. That is “lying about the Bible”.

Walsh contended that Christians are not “forfeiting love” by confronting sin.

“It’s not that we’re confronting and fighting back against evil in spite of the fact that we’re supposed to be loving; it’s because we love that we do those things,” he said.

The groundhog is retreating to his Narrative hidey-hole. “We love you, Father Martin! That’s why you teaching people to disobey God by committing abominations with their bodies makes us feel sad!”

As some denominations over the past decade have affirmed homosexuality, Walsh believes that it is impossible to defend homosexuality in Scripture.

“The greater issue is just the misrepresentation of what you find in the Gospel. A good example would be things like ‘tolerance and acceptance’ are now presented in the church as virtues, even biblical virtues,” Walsh warned. “They’re not virtues at all. There’s nothing wrong necessarily with tolerating. It depends on what you’re tolerating. But there is nothing virtuous about it.”

Walsh exhibits the primary moral failure of the Cuckservative. He assumes, prima facie and against all evidence, that the determined enemies of God are kindhearted people with good intentions. They just need a little more education! That only works for socialists… because they beat you with bike locks if “education” doesn’t take hold.

He warned that some churches are teaching that tolerance is the “ultimate virtue” and synonymous with “compassion” and “love.”

“To be intolerant of something is thought of automatically as bigotry,” he noted. “The worst thing you can ever be is intolerant. But it’s just not the case. We should be intolerant of bad things and intolerant of things that harm people. We should be intolerant with children in our culture. We should be intolerant of sin within ourselves and in the world.”

Maybe we should also be intolerant of the people who harm people? Or should we fight against what they do while providing endless opportunities for them to do it again? Looking at YOU, Second Amendment advocates! Stop focusing on the legislation and start focusing on the politicians who author it! Even if you defeat a bill, they’ll just try again next year at your tax-funded expense.

“So I think we think we’re called to intolerance in many cases. Compassion is virtuous, but the version of compassion that is preached so often is something synonymous with acceptance and tolerance. Compassion actually means co-suffering. That’s the etymology of the world of the word, which means that you’re suffering alongside somebody and taking on their sufferings to alleviate that burden. Christ is the ultimate example of that. [Compassion] is a much more active and sacrificial thing than how it is often portrayed.”

Do Cuckservatives show off how book-smart they are so that the devil’s children will find their arguments more convincing? “Oh, okay, I’ll stop cashing my chilamony checks because you know the correct etymologies of the words I use to justify it.”

According to Walsh, churches need to be bolder in addressing the problems in the culture today and need to focus more on calling people to repentance and self-sacrifice.

No Cucking is complete without an altar call to navel-gaze. Hmm, yes, that IS a leech upon my navel, sucking out my lifeblood. Perhaps I should repent of my selfishness.

“We have to stop being afraid of preaching that message,” he said. “It may scare some people away. But the people who are scared away aren’t really Christian anyway. If they don’t want to hear the Christian message, they are not Christian. But for everybody else, this is what they want. This is what they are searching for. I think we have to provide that in the Church.”

If Jesus had preached with Walsh’s level of conviction then nobody would have bothered to crucify Him. Similarly, Walsh’s new book is no threat to the status quo.


Breitbart Asks the Trillion-Dollar Question

“Why did your computer model vastly overestimate the number of hospitalizations that Chinavirus would cause?”

Actual Hospitalizations for Coronavirus Significantly Lower than Projections in Model

By Michael Patrick Leahy, 3 April 2020

The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) model cited by White House Coronavirus Task Force officials appears to dramatically overstate the hospitalization of patients with coronavirus in the United States when the model’s projections are compared to actual data, a Breitbart News analysis finds.

Breitbart News compared projections of the number of regular hospital beds needed to treat coronavirus patients made in the Friday, April 3 iteration of the IHME model for nine states to the actual number of cumulative hospitalizations (a number that includes current regular bed hospitalizations, current ICU hospitalizations, previously hospitalized and released patients, and previously hospitalized and deceased patients) reported by the respective health departments in those states as of Thursday, April 2.

The results showed that the actual number of cumulative hospitalizations as a percentage of regular hospital beds needed projected by the IHME model ranged from nine percent in Tennessee to 47 percent in Florida.

Even in New York State, the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, the actual number of cumulative hospitalizations as a percentage of regular hospital beds needed projected by the IHME model was only 37 percent.

These numbers, however, actually understate the degree to which the IHME model overestimates the number of hospital beds currently needed for coronavirus patients because the numerator–cumulative hospitalizations–includes data well in addition to the actual number of current regular hospital beds in use for coronavirus patients, since it also includes current ICU hospital beds in use for coronavirus patients as well as previously hospitalized coronavirus patients either released or deceased.

The Department of Public Health in Minnesota, for instance, reported as of April 2 that 46 out of the 156 reported cumulative hospitalizations in the state for coronavirus are patients currently in regular hospital beds, while 40 are patients in ICU hospital beds and 70 are formerly hospitalized patients who have been released or are deceased.

Over half. That alone is proof they’re cooking the books… intentionally including old or irrelevant data.

Here is a breakdown of the actual number of cumulative hospitalizations reported by these nine states as of April 2, as compared to the number of regular hospital beds projected for coronavirus patients in those states on April 2 by the IHME model:

Colorado: Cumulative hospitalizations of 710 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 3,141 = 23 percent.
Ohio: Cumulative hospitalizations of 802 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 2,436 = 33 percent
Tennessee: Cumulative hospitalizations of 263 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 2,741 = 9 percent
Texas: Cumulative hospitalizations of 196 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 1,968 = 10 percent
New York: Cumulative hospitalizations of 20,817 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 56,183 = 37 percent
Florida: Cumulative hospitalizations of 1,215 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 2,612 = 47 percent
Georgia: Cumulative hospitalizations of 1,158 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 3,089 = 37 percent
Iowa: Cumulative hospitalizations of 138 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 384 = 36 percent
Minnesota: Cumulative hospitalizations of 156 divided by regular hospital bed projections of 823 = 19 percent

Notably, the IHME model’s current projections of COVID-19 deaths as of April 2 is in line with the actual number of reported deaths on that date.

That is suspicious in a different way. Hospitalization predictions are wildly wrong while deaths, a subset of hospitalizations, are accurately predicted? Are we talking about completely separate models or is the most headline-catching statistic being doctored more heavily than an elderly, diabetic, Chinese owner of a bat cave?

We don’t even know if these are produced by separate models. The modeling code has reportedly not been released for public scrutiny.

Already I’ve heard from other sources that “deaths from COVID-19” are deaths of people who tested positive for it, not people who died as a result of it. This is important because most of the dead have additional problems from AIDS to brain tumors. If you have Chinavirus and die of cirrhosis of the liver then good news! Your liver was fine!

Caveat, there’s a lot of contradicting information out there. Which is a third reason to be vengefully suspicious, when the people whose job is to report on this are going out of their way to confuse the sense out of anybody listening to them.

Breitbart News provided this data to the media spokesperson for the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation on Friday and asked if they could explained why the IHME model’s projections of regular hospital beds needed is so badly off the mark from actual beds required for COVID-19 patients up to April 2 but has not yet received a response.

Don’t hold your breath, Breitbart, or you might die of COVID-19.


Stop The Nag-A-Virus!

Now THIS is a quarantine that I can support!

Malaysian Government Advises Women Not to Nag Husbands During Lockdown

By Nate Church, 1 April 2020

Uh-oh. This was published on April Fool’s Day. But NPR confirms!

A government advisory in Malaysia is facing widespread backlash after instructing women to dress up, wear makeup, and not nag their husbands during quarantine.

In the wake of the southeast Asian country’s lockdown, Malaysia’s Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development published a series of posters to Facebook and Instagram, under the hashtag “WomenPreventCOVID19.” The posters urged women not to nag their husbands and to avoid being “sarcastic” when asking for help with household chores. It also encouraged working women to dress up and wear makeup, avoiding “home clothes.”


Translation: Don’t wear sweat pants. Do wear makeup. And behave professionally. I assume the bun is optional, however.

The Malasyian government clearly did not anticipate the overwhelmingly negative response to the bizarre initiative. “How did we go from preventing baby dumping, fighting domestic violence to some variant of the Obedient Wives Club?” one person asked.

“Avoid wearing home clothes. Dress up as usual, put on make-up and dress neatly. OMG! This is what Rina, our Minister of Women, Family & Community Development thinks is important during the #COVID19 lockdown?” complained another.

You have NO IDEA, female!

Advocacy groups see a larger societal problem with messaging like this during a time when all of humanity is trying to unite against our common, invisible foe: “[It] is extremely condescending both to women and men,” All Women’s Action Society manager Nisha Sabanayagam told Reuters. “These posters promote the concept of gender inequality and perpetuate the concept of patriarchy.”

By Tuesday, the Ministry relented, taking down the posts and claiming that they were simply an effort at encouraging people in “maintaining positive relationships among family members during the period they are working from home.” Nevertheless, they also pledged to “remain cautious in the future.”

We don’t need a military. We need to draft America’s feminists into a Biddy Brigade. No government can stand against weaponized female whining!

But there’s a legitimate question of whether we could maintain control of it.

Meanwhile, governments and advocacy groups around the world are looking toward a problem that is all too real: The dangerous risks of increased domestic violence when abusive partners are trapped at home with their victims. Or, as one such group tweeted in response to the absurdity, “Where is the one telling men to not beat your partners at this difficult time?”

The Super Bowl Lie resurrects! Remember that one, when feminist groups claimed that domestic violence rates peaked during Super Bowl commercial breaks? When men got up, stretched their legs, bashed their wife’s face into an omelet, then sat back down to holler at the referee?

Our leaders have stupid levels of foolish. The workplace was one of the few places for henpecked men to escape the extreme stress of feral wives. Confining them to wifey’s incessant nagging…

“When are you going to get a job and support me?”

“When the quarantine ends, dear.”


…may indeed increase the rate of domestic violence of men against the women…

…who overwhelmingly deserve it.


The Quarantined Mercenary Rant

Now that the quarantines are being extended until May… I expect they will be extended until Election Day in November so politicians can make full use of confused, panicked voters… the Man-Up shaming has begun. I want to work and play and get fresh air, and that’s crazy talk according to the properly credentialed experts!

This plague marks the first time I’ve ever been called selfish for wanting to do my job. It’s not selfish for the elderly to shut down the entire economy for their personal safety. It’s not selfish for the banksters to get trillions in bailout money because the stock market stopped going up. It’s not selfish for the politicians to claim that their refusal to take preventative measures is irrelevant to their demands that I take drastic measures. But it IS selfish for me to continue earning money & paying taxes by keeping society’s infrastructure intact for another year.

And yes, it’s drastic for me to go without my conveniences. They’re my only reward for cooperating with society at all. See, the Roman Empire didn’t give its people bread and circuses to distract them. The Empire locked its own people out of the halls of power while still being dependent upon their cooperation. In that situation, the people became mercenaries rather than citizens. Citizens will occasionally suffer for the good of their society because they’re a part of that society, but mercenaries? Mercenaries just get paid. You don’t want to be around a mercenary whose monthly check bounced. Ordering him to suck it up for the good of YOUR society (not his society) will make that situation even worse.

Give me my Danegeld, ye who despise my existence yet need my services!

I have no representation in my government. Unwelcome at every church I’ve attended. No woman wanted me. Can’t afford a home because the banksters keep the market values inflated and the immigration spigot wide open. I’m a second-class citizen in my own country by the decree of the State and the voluntary cooperation of every leader in every sector of society. And now, they all want me to confine myself to my room like an inmate, at my expense unlike an inmate, until they say otherwise, for THEIR safety, while I selfishly insist upon earning the food I eat.

I’ve never been so tempted to play with matches.

What’s the big deal, anyway? What makes the Chinavirus any different from the typhus they have in their own City Hall, or the hepatitis rampant in the slums, or the dozens of incurable, disgusting diseases they voluntarily ejaculate into each other’s assholes? I laugh at Jew York having a full one-third of North America’s Chinavirus victims. Look who’s been in bed with the Commie Chinks! California’s Bay Area has way more Chinese people and is half the distance to China yet our troubles are trivial by comparison. (Currently, the score is NYC’s 1,046 deaths [population 8.5M] to Santa Clara County’s 30 [pop. 2M].)

Self-cleaning oven!

What are the conveniences I demand for my continued participation in society? A paycheck, obviously. Evenings spent with friends over board games. Weekends at the beach getting fresh air and exercise. A gym to keep healthy with. Events like the Scottish Festival and demolition derbies. Tasty food. So unreasonable! If a few hundreds of thousands of old farts need to risk death so I can keep getting those conveniences then… now that I think about it… I am perfectly okay with that. Knowing that that “hundreds of thousands” figure is almost certainly a lie spewed by that Jesuit, Fauci, is mere sauce on my schadenfreude.

I could have been a part of society. I wanted to be part of society. I had much to offer society. But they did not want me and there was nowhere I could go that did want me. Fine, then. I’ll default to being a mercenary.

But mercenaries get paid, Mister Powers That Be, and not in sob stories. Don’t take my conveniences away and don’t expect me to care about YOUR survival beyond the point that I, personally, deem appropriate for my own purposes.
