It’s A New Year But Women Are Still the Same

Women be all “why don’t men respect me for my accomplishments?” then be all “buy my pinup calendar for charity!” then be all “look how well I aged!” At no point in this were horny young men actually consulted.

Former Black Hawk helicopter pilot Jana Tobias on posing for Pin-ups for Vets: ‘I still can’t believe it’s me’

By Stephanie Nolasco, 30 December 30

Jana Tobias was eager to suit up in a completely different way.

The veteran, who served in the Army as a Black Hawk pilot, is one of 12 women who swapped their uniforms and combat boots for ‘40s style dresses and high heels, for the 16th annual Pin-Ups for Vets 2022 calendar. The award-winning nonprofit, founded in 2006 by California resident Gina Elise, raises funding to support hospitalized and deployed troops.

They probably sold… by appealing to Original Sin, not male hormones.

“I try to follow as many veteran organizations as possible,” Tobias told Fox News. “I came across Pin-Ups for Vets on Facebook and I was just intrigued. I’ve always loved the 1940s, not because of the clothes, but really the nose art.

“You can’t think small with tits this large!” (I didn’t check after finding her face… stay tuned.)

I’m in aviation, so that has always fascinated me. It was also a time when our country was going through hardship and war. And yet, we as Americans did whatever was possible to motivate and uplift our troops, so they can keep going. I felt like I could contribute.”

Contribute… how, exactly, female?

I’d call that a contribution!
You boost my morale, baby!

Um… A flat-chested, man-jawed mattress girl. In a blue dress, even.

These women are trying to have it both ways. “I can fight like a man!” and “I’m soft and desirable!”. A few of these women can clean up with cosmetics and a good outfit, but suffice to say, the Marine Corps made a man out of a few of ’em. A fat man with a thousand-cock stare.

Rosie the Riveter was such a lie.

The 44-year-old’s journey is one made fit for the silver screen. As a child, she was enamored with G.I. Joe and the 1984 action film “Red Dawn,” about how a group of teenagers band together to defend their country from invading Soviet forces.

“I grew up with four brothers,” she chuckled. “My father always treated me like one of the boys. He didn’t treat me special because I was a girl. He taught me everything, including fishing, camping, hiking – whatever else my brothers were doing. We also wrestled. I felt like I could do anything that my brothers could do. My father also served at the National Guard so service was essential in my family.”

According to the Massachusetts resident, it was in college when she saw a flyer for the ROTC at her dorm cafeteria.

“It was something I’ve always wanted to do,” said Tobias. “I wanted to help people, save people. And I felt it would be very cool.”

The choice forever changed her life.

Had she been under proper male authority, she would not have believed the recruiter’s lies.

Tobias joined the Santa Barbara ROTC at the University of California during her freshman year in 1995. She was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant through the ROTC when she graduated in June 1999.

According to Tobias, she served in South Korea from 2000 until 2001. From there she headed to Fort Hood from 2001 until 2008. Then came the Texas Army National Guard from 2009 until 2015, and finally the Massachusetts Army National Guard from 2016 until 2020. Tobias was deployed twice to Iraq; once with the 1st Cavalry Division on active duty from 2004 until 2005 and then with the 36th Infantry Division in the Texas Army National Guard from 2010 until 2011.

Tobias said one of her most memorable experiences was being involved with the disaster relief and rescue operations during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. She described landing on overpasses, streets, stadiums and rooftops to help those stranded by rising waters.

I can’t dump too hard on her enjoying rescue ops over combat ops. Not after realizing how often the ‘Murican Empire has been the bad guy. Regardless, joining the military with the intention of helping strangers is really not what a proper military is about.

Over the years, Tobias said she followed several veteran organizations on social media. And along the way, she discovered Pin-Ups for Vets.

“The style was intriguing,” she said. “But also, I was just really drawn to the organization’s mission and what they were trying to accomplish by supporting our veterans. It felt like the perfect way for me to serve again. I reached out because I have done my own little pinup photos for my husband in these cool outfits and thought, ‘I could do this.’”

The nonprofit famously produces WWII-inspired bombshell calendars featuring veterans as models. The 16th annual calendar for 2022 features 12 female veterans, whose combined military service equals 100 years.

Being freshly retired from military service made her jump to pin-up artist rather… wrinkly.

And losing that war after 20 years. But enough about Afghanistan…

Since its launch, Pin-Ups for Vets has donated over $80,000 to help hospitals purchase new rehabilitation equipment and to provide financial assistance for veterans’ health care program expansion across the country. During the pandemic, Pin-Ups for Vets has been shipping out care packages enclosed with gifts of appreciation to hospitalized veterans. It continues to mail morale-boosting care packages to deployed U.S. troops around the globe.

Morale-boosting != boob-sagging.

Tobias is Miss June 2022.

“I’m not a model, so this was outside my comfort zone,” said Tobias. “But my husband was there and making me laugh. It was a lot of fun. I met so many amazing women with inspirational stories from their time in the military. And when I saw the photos, I just couldn’t believe it was me. Gina has this eye and I felt so beautiful. I still can’t believe it’s me.”

Still female, wanting to be beautiful despite getting her man card punched.

And the cause hit close to home. Tobias said that like many veterans, she faced personal struggles.

Still female, playing the victim after a full, commissioned career of female empowerment.

“My biggest struggle was knowing who I was and how I fit in,” she admitted. “I was an officer, I was a leader. I was in charge of platoons and companies. Those were all skills I learned to develop… Some people might think veterans just follow commands because that’s the perception of the military. You’re just a soldier. You don’t ask questions. But you have your integrity, your moral compass. We’re not just robots. We have goals and dreams like anyone else.”

Oh, that poor officer! Forced to be in charge despite having goals and dreams like anyone else!

“I am proud of our resilience,” she said. “I am proud that we can live in a place where we aren’t persecuted daily. I don’t know if many people realize that. You don’t have to look over your shoulder constantly. We have our freedoms. I’m happy where we are as a nation because it’s far better than it could be. We always fight and we never give up. We’re not afraid to tackle hard issues. And, we’ve maintained a level of security and freedom that is unparalleled.”

If she was any more resilient then she’d have waited until age 60 to try becoming a sex symbol. “Hey Mike, check out THIS pin-up! Do you think she’s hit menopause yet?”

Elites Give Up On Vat-Grown Meat

To end 2021 on a positive note, the Elites’ plan to replace animal meat with vat-grown sludge has failed. Read the story of how !science! discovered that it takes a cow to make a steak!

I left a lot of the story out. It accidentally gives a lot of backstory into the players behind the scenes of alternative meat but I had to stay on topic.

Lab-Grown Meat Is Supposed To Be Inevitable. The Science Tells A Different Story.

By Joe Fassler, 22 September 2021

Paul Wood didn’t buy it.

For years, the former pharmaceutical industry executive watched from the sidelines as biotech startups raked in venture capital, making bold pronouncements about the future of meat. He was fascinated by their central contention: the idea that one day, soon, humans will no longer need to raise livestock to enjoy animal protein. We’ll be able to grow meat in giant, stainless-steel bioreactors—and enough of it to feed the world. These advancements in technology, the pitch went, would fundamentally change the way human societies interact with the planet, making the care, slaughter, and processing of billions of farm animals the relic of a barbaric past.

Oregon isn’t even waiting. Segue:

h ttps://

An Oregon ballot [Initiative Petition 13] proposed for 2022 would effectively criminalize the farming of food animals in the state by classifying their slaughter as aggravated abuse and redefining artificial insemination and castration as sexual assault.

I hope that none of my Oregon readers have donated to a sperm bank recently. All she needs to do is identify as a cow…

Petition 13 will be ‘voted’ on in November 2022.

End segue

It’s a digital-era narrative we’ve come to accept, even expect: Powerful new tools will allow companies to rethink everything, untethering us from systems we’d previously taken for granted. Countless news articles have suggested that a paradigm shift driven by cultured meat is inevitable, even imminent.

It’s remarkable, looking at the news stories over the years, how long the Great Reset has been coming. Far longer than any one human’s life span.

For four years, Wood, who has a PhD in immunology, served as the executive director of global discovery for Pfizer Animal Health. (His division was later spun off into Zoetis, today the largest animal health company in the world.) One of his responsibilities was to oversee production of vaccines, which can involve infecting living cells with weakened virus strains and inducing those cells to multiply inside large bioreactors. In addition to yielding large quantities of vaccine-grade viruses…

Not a phrase I want to hear from Pfizer.

…this approach also creates significant amounts of animal cell slurry, similar to the product next-generation protein startups want to process further into meat. Wood knew the process to be extremely technical, resource-intensive, and expensive. He didn’t understand how costly biomanufacturing techniques could ever be used to produce cheap, abundant human food.

In March of this year, he hoped he’d finally get his answer. That month, the Good Food Institute (GFI), a nonprofit that represents the alternative protein industry, published a techno-economic analysis (TEA) that projected the future costs of producing a kilogram of cell-cultured meat. Prepared independently for GFI by the research consulting firm CE Delft, and using proprietary data provided under NDA by 15 private companies, the document showed how addressing a series of technical and economic barriers could lower the production price from over $10,000 per pound today to about $2.50 per pound over the next nine years—an astonishing 4,000-fold reduction.

In the press push that followed, GFI claimed victory. “New studies show cultivated meat can have massive environmental benefits and be cost-competitive by 2030,” it trumpeted, suggesting that a new era of cheap, accessible cultured protein is rapidly approaching. The finding is critical for GFI and its allies. If private, philanthropic, and public sector investors are going to put money into cell-cultured meat, costs need to come down quickly. Most of us have a limited appetite for 50-dollar lab-grown chicken nuggets.

They’re not expecting a miracle. They’re just lying. The very last thing they want to see, is cheap, healthy animal protein in our diet. Any time your rulers want to change a system that works, it’s not because the new way is guaranteed to be better.

But they can sell the idea today because the definition of Progressivism is the faith that new=better.

With its TEA findings in hand, GFI has worked tirelessly to argue for massive public investment. Its top policy recommendation, according to GFI’s in-depth analysis of the TEA results, is aimed at “forward-thinking” governments: They “should increase public funds for R & D into cultivated meat technology” in order to “seize the opportunity and reap the benefits of becoming global leaders” in the space. In late April, just six weeks later, that message was amplified by The New York Times. In a column called “Let’s Launch a Moonshot for Meatless Meat,” Ezra Klein, a co-founder of Vox who is now one of the Times’s most visible and influential writers, argued that the U.S. government should invest billions to improve and scale both plant-based meat alternatives (like the Impossible Burger) and cultivated meat.

Socialize the costs, privatize the profits.

Bruce Friedrich, GFI’s founder and CEO, appeared in the story to argue that the need for significant public investment was urgent and necessary. “If we leave this endeavor to the tender mercies of the market there will be vanishingly few products to choose from and it’ll take a very long time,” he told Klein. The message was clear: If we want to save the planet, we should double down on cultured meat.

Translation: We must starve humans of eating meat because Climate Change.

Wood couldn’t believe what he was hearing. In his view, GFI’s TEA report did little to justify increased public investment. He found it to be an outlandish document, one that trafficked more in wishful thinking than in science. He was so incensed that he hired a former Pfizer colleague, Huw Hughes, to analyze GFI’s analysis. Today, Hughes is a private consultant who helps biomanufacturers design and project costs for their production facilities; he’s worked on six sites devoted to cell culture at scale. Hughes concluded that GFI’s report projected unrealistic cost decreases, and left key aspects of the production process undefined, while significantly underestimating the expense and complexity of constructing a suitable facility.

In an interview by phone, Wood wondered if GFI was being disingenuous—or if the organization was simply naive.

They’re evil, Mr. Wood. You want to get clear of Pfizer and its astonishing profits before the Almighty audits their account.

“After a while, you just think: Am I going crazy? Or do these people have some secret sauce that I’ve never heard of?” Wood said. “And the reality is, no—they’re just doing fermentation. But what they’re saying is, ‘Oh, we’ll do it better than anyone else has ever, ever done.”

In fact, GFI was well aware of Wood’s line of criticism. Several months earlier, Open Philanthropy—a multi-faceted research and investment entity with a nonprofit grant-making arm, which is also one of GFI’s biggest funders—completed a much more robust TEA of its own, one that concluded cell-cultured meat will likely never be a cost-competitive food. David Humbird, the UC Berkeley-trained chemical engineer who spent over two years researching the report, found that the cell-culture process will be plagued by extreme, intractable technical challenges at food scale. In an extensive series of interviews with The Counter, he said it was “hard to find an angle that wasn’t a ludicrous dead end.”

Open Philanthropy identifies outstanding giving opportunities, makes grants, follows the results, and publishes our findings. Our main funders are Cari Tuna and Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder of Facebook and Asana.

The Open Philanthropy Project 501(c)(3) is governed by a Board of Directors currently consisting of Dustin Moskovitz (Chair), Cari Tuna, Divesh Makan, Holden Karnofsky, and Alexander Berger. The Open Philanthropy Project LLC is governed by a Board of Managers currently consisting of Dustin Moskovitz, Cari Tuna, Elie Hassenfeld, Holden Karnofsky, and Alexander Berger.

That’s quite a roomful of the ((usual suspects)).

End segue

Humbird likened the process of researching the report to encountering an impenetrable “Wall of No”—his term for the barriers in thermodynamics, cell metabolism, bioreactor design, ingredient costs, facility construction, and other factors that will need to be overcome before cultivated protein can be produced cheaply enough to displace traditional meat.

“And it’s a fractal no,” he told me. “You see the big no, but every big no is made up of a hundred little nos.”

GFI vetted Humbird’s report before publication and made extensive suggestions for revision. Its own TEA, released a few months later, painted a much more optimistic picture. With its own results in hand, GFI continues to urge world governments to throw money into cultivated meat. If they don’t act soon, according to one recent press release, those nations risk being “left behind.”

Standard control-the-narrative behavior.

Who’s right? Is cultured meat our best hope to save the climate, a billion-dollar boondoggle, or something in between? Will it ever make sense to produce food the way we currently make our drugs?

The stakes couldn’t be higher. In August, the United Nations released a nearly 4,000-page report amounting to what it called a “code red for humanity”: Unless the world’s nations make a vast, coordinated effort to stop burning fossil fuels and razing forests, we’ll find ourselves locked into an even more dire, unforgiving future than the one we’re facing now. At a time when bold environmental solutions are needed, we can only afford to direct public and private investment toward solutions that actually work. But without looking more closely at the fundamentals—something media has largely declined to do—we can’t know whether cultured meat is our salvation or an expensive distraction.

It’s cruelty against humanity. We were created, or evolved if you prefer, to eat animals. Full stop. And frankly, freedom of religion means that those of us who don’t have a moral problem eating animals cannot be stopped by power-hungry politicians and their Satanic paymasters.

1. The biggest small factories in the world

It’s the beginning of a shift in human thinking, enabled by biotechnology: Rather than raise entire animals, we might only grow the parts we eat. Why spend energy growing the complex, sentient structures we call cattle—complete with bones, horns, hooves, and vital organs—when we only want the finished steak? Cultivating meat inside bioreactors eliminates those inconveniences, doing away with the troublesome task of growing a body, of sustaining a consciousness.

Gram for gram, animals are a wildly inefficient vehicle for producing edible protein (as advocates for cultured meat like to point out). Cattle consume roughly 25 calories of plant material for every calorie of edible protein they produce, according to some estimates. Even chickens, the most efficient form of livestock from a feed perspective, eat 9 to 10 calories of food for every calorie of edible protein produced. Friedrich, the director of GFI, has said that’s like…

“All of the cow is wasted except for the portion consumed by humans!” Exactly the concept I am nuking with this post.

And since we’re talking about caloric efficiency… Potato Joe Biden flew a fleet of 85 limousines in a fleet of twenty-odd transport aircraft halfway across the world, to bitch about MY carbon footprint killing the planet. And then he slept through the summit and shat his diaper in public.

In contrast, the disembodied economics of cultivated meat could allow for huge production advantages, at least theoretically. According to the Open Philanthropy report, a mature, scaled-up industry could eventually achieve a ratio of only three to four calories in for every calorie out, compared to the chicken’s 10 and the steer’s 25. That would still make cultured meat much more inefficient compared to just eating plants themselves; we’d dump two plates of pasta for every one we eat. And the cells themselves might still be fed on a diet of commodity grains, the cheapest and most environmentally destructive inputs available. But it would represent a major improvement.

The future is certain, the past is unknown, the present must be radically changed!

But cultivated meat’s gains in feed efficiency give rise to new inefficiency—the need for intensive, sophisticated machinery, and lots of it.

The analysis that GFI commissioned laid out a vision of this future, predicting the emergence of a new kind of mega-facility with the power to transform our eating habits forever. The idea was to project what cultivated meat production will need to look like in the year 2030—in terms of scale and cost—if it is going to make meaningful progress toward displacing animal agriculture. In other words, if meat without slaughter is ever going to move out of the realm of exclusive press tastings and onto supermarket shelves, it will need to happen through facilities like the one the report described.

Year 2030, yep. This is UN Agenda 2030.

GFI’s imagined facility would be both unthinkably vast and, well, tiny. According to the TEA, it would produce 10,000 metric tons—22 million pounds—of cultured meat per year, which sounds like a lot. For context, that volume would represent more than 10 percent of the entire domestic market for plant-based meat alternatives (currently about 200 million pounds per year in the U.S., according to industry advocates). And yet 22 million pounds of cultured protein, held up against the output of the conventional meat industry, barely registers. It’s only about .0002, or one-fiftieth of one percent, of the 100 billion pounds of meat produced in the U.S. each year. JBS’s Greeley, Colorado beefpacking plant, which can process more than 5,000 head of cattle a day, can produce that amount of market-ready meat in a single week.

And yet, at a projected cost of $450 million, GFI’s facility might not come any cheaper than a large conventional slaughterhouse. With hundreds of production bioreactors installed, the scope of high-grade equipment would be staggering. According to one estimate, the entire biopharmaceutical industry today boasts roughly 6,300 cubic meters in bioreactor volume. (1 cubic meter is equal to 1,000 liters.) The single, hypothetical facility described by GFI would require nearly a third of that, just to make a sliver of the nation’s meat.

Higher cost would be a feature, not a bug, to the Elites. But the technical problems are only beginning.

The process, according to GFI, would begin with a 1.5-milliliter vial of production-optimized animal cells (the report doesn’t specify which livestock species)…. After 10 days, according to GFI, the cells graduate to their first bioreactor, a small, 50-liter model. In another 10 days, they would move to a much larger, 12,500-liter stirred batch reactor, the kind of steel vessel you might expect to see in a brewery, capable of holding the same volume as a backyard swimming pool. This gradual progression is necessary; you can’t just throw a small amount of cells into a large bioreactor and hope they’ll start dividing. Cells are “fastidious,” Hughes told me, and have strict metabolic requirements for growth, including oxygen tension. Because of this characteristic, more fluid is pumped into the reactor as cells multiply, maintaining a specific ratio of fluid to cells. Any cultured meat facility, real or imagined, will likely need to operate this way: with a graduated series of ever-larger reactors, like a sequence of Russian dolls…

Maintaining fluid/nutrient/cell ratios? Isn’t that what a circulatory system does?

It’s a complex, precise, energy-intensive process, but the output of this single bioreactor train would be comparatively tiny. The hypothetical factory would need to have 130 production lines like the one I’ve just described, with more than 600 bioreactors all running simultaneously. Nothing on this scale has ever existed—though if we wanted to switch to cultivated meat by 2030, we’d better start now. If cultured protein is going to be even 10 percent of the world’s meat supply by 2030, we will need 4,000 factories like the one GFI envisions, according to an analysis by the trade publication Food Navigator. To meet that deadline, building at a rate of one mega-facility a day would be too slow.

Imagine that. Cells aren’t actually soap bubbles of food with a tiny nucleus at the center like the evolutionists of Charles Darwin’s time thought. They’re actually machines built to take in machined parts in a particular context (organs). Tricking the cell into ignoring all that is so complex, you’d be better off raising the animal.

Everybody involved knew this in high school, then willed themselves to forget for the sake of agenda, then failed to ignore reality. Playing God is easy but succeeding as God, not so much.

2. A buried report?

In 2015, Open Philanthropy publicly acknowledged being vexed by the problem of cultured meat. In a long, detailed post on its website, the organization summarized everything it knew—exploring whether the emerging technology was a potentially transformative solution worthy of serious investment, or something more far-fetched. After wrestling with a number of in-the-weeds issues, from sterility challenges to scaffolding designs, Open Philanthropy concluded that it simply didn’t have enough data to draw a conclusion. “There is essentially no industrial data around cost of scaling up cell production,” it wrote.

Our beliefs are TRUE! We just can’t explain how to doubters and investors yet.

In 2018, Open Philanthropy itself stepped in to fill that gap, hiring Humbird to do a robust analysis of cultivated meat’s potential. He was the right guy. After getting his PhD in chemical engineering from UC Berkeley in 2004, Humbird used his training to go into the business of rigorous, scientifically informed predictions. Today, in addition to his work as a private-sector consultant, Humbird provides techno-economic analyses for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), a renowned federally funded research center in Golden, Colorado. Most of NREL’s engineers use U.S. Department of Energy money to conceive, test, and improve upon novel green energy technologies. Humbird’s job is to look into the crystal ball. He’s one of the experts NREL contracts to figure out which approaches are viable at scale, how much they would cost, and ultimately if the government should fund them.

Humbird spent more than two years preparing his analysis for Open Philanthropy. The resulting document, which clocks in at 100 single-spaced pages with notes and appendices, is the most comprehensive public study of the challenges cultured meat companies will face. (An abridged, formally peer-reviewed version has since appeared in the journal Biotechnology and Bioengineering.) Their future doesn’t look good. Humbird worked off the assumption that the industry would grow to produce 100 kilotons per year worldwide—roughly the amount of plant-based “meat” produced in 2020. He found that even given those economies of scale, which would lower input and material costs to prices that don’t exist today, a facility producing roughly 6.8 kilotons of cultured meat per year would fail to create a cost-competitive product. Using large, 20,000 L reactors would result in a production cost of about $17 per pound of meat, according to the analysis. Relying on smaller, more medium-efficient perfusion reactors would be even pricier, resulting in a final cost of over $23 per pound.

Based on Humbird’s analysis of cell biology, process design, input expenses, capital costs, economies of scale, and other factors, these figures represent the lowest prices companies can expect. And if $17 per pound doesn’t sound too high, consider this: The final product would be a single-cell slurry, a mix of 30 percent animal cells and 70 percent water, suitable only for ground-meat-style products like burgers and nuggets. With markups being what they are, a $17 pound of ground cultivated meat at the factory quickly becomes $40 at the grocery store—or a $100 quarter-pounder at a restaurant. Anything resembling a steak would require additional production processes, introduce new engineering challenges, and ultimately contribute additional expense.

Though Humbird lays out his case with an unprecedented level of technical detail, his argument can be boiled down simply: The cost of cultivation facilities will always be too burdensome, and the cost of growth media will always be too high, for the economics of cultured meat to make sense. It’s a stark finding, one that’s unusually unequivocal for a scientific document—and it should have made waves in the alternative protein sphere.

Instead, few people found out about it. On December 28, 2020, heading into the New Year’s Eve holiday weekend, Humbird quietly uploaded his paper to an open-source archive for process engineering studies. As of this writing, Open Philanthropy has not referenced its groundbreaking findings on social media or its website, not even on its pages devoted to animal agriculture.

Open Philanthropy declined to be interviewed for this story. “We’ll pass on an interview in part because the full implications for grantmaking and impact investment strategy are not totally settled,” wrote Michael Levine, the organization’s communications officer, in an email.

Another blow to Open Philanthropy! The Rube Goldberg setup to create their pond scum is so expensive, they’d have to pay for it themselves. The one concept Jewish banksters hate more than Christ.

Levine did note that Open Philanthropy continues to fund “a variety of efforts to help the food industry transition from suffering-intense factory farming,” including GFI’s work.

Searching for alternatives means they are, in fact, giving up on vat meat.

“Clearly, I don’t think cultured meat has legs,” he told me. “I think I make that clear in the paper, if not in such colloquial terms. But it seems like a bunch of hooey to me.”

3. So big and so clean

In cell culture, sterility is paramount. Animal cells “grow so slowly that if we get any bacteria in a culture—well, then we’ve just got a bacteria culture,” Humbird said. “Bacteria grow every 20 minutes, and the animal cells are stuck at 24 hours. You’re going to crush the culture in hours with a contamination event.”

“A key difference in the CE Delft study is that everything was assumed to be food-grade,” Swartz said. That distinction, of whether facilities will be able to operate at food- or pharma-grade specs, will perhaps more than anything determine the future viability of cultivated meat.

The Open Philanthropy report assumes the opposite: that cultivated meat production will need to take place in aseptic “clean rooms” where virtually no contamination exists. For his cost accounting, Humbird projected the need for a Class 8 clean room—an enclosed space where piped-in, purified oxygen blows away threatening particles as masked, hooded workers come in and out, likely through an airlock or sterile gowning room. To meet international standards for airborne particulate matter, the air inside would be replaced at a rate of 10 to 25 times an hour, compared to 2 to 4 times in a conventional building. The area where the cell lines are maintained and seeded would need a Class 6 clean room, an even more intensive specification that runs with an air replacement rate of 90 to 180 times per hour.

The simple reason: In cell culture, sterility is paramount. Animal cells “grow so slowly that if we get any bacteria in a culture—well, then we’ve just got a bacteria culture,” Humbird said. “Bacteria grow every 20 minutes, and the animal cells are stuck at 24 hours. You’re going to crush the culture in hours with a contamination event.”

Viruses also present a unique problem. Because cultured animal cells are alive, they can get infected just the way living animals can.

“There are documented cases of, basically, operators getting the culture sick,” Humbird said. “Not even because the operator themselves had a cold. But there was a virus particle on a glove. Or not cleaned out of a line. The culture has no immune system. If there’s virus particles in there that can infect the cells, they will. And generally, the cells just die, and then there’s no product anymore. You just dump it.”

If even a single speck of bacteria can spoil batches and halt production, clean rooms may turn out to be a basic, necessary precondition. It may not matter if governments end up allowing cultured meat facilities to produce at food-grade specs, critics say—cells are so intensely vulnerable that they’ll likely need protection to survive.

At the scale envisioned by proponents of cultured meat, there is little room for error. But if aseptic production turns out to be necessary, it isn’t going to come cheap. Humbird found that a Class 8 clean room big enough to produce roughly 15 million pounds of cultured meat a year would cost about $40 to $50 million dollars. That figure doesn’t reflect the cost of equipment, construction, engineering, or installation. It simply reflects the materials needed to run a sterile work environment, a clean room sitting empty.

4. The price of (synthetic) blood

When cattle are processed at a slaughterhouse, workers will sometimes cut open a cow’s body and discover a fetus. Dairy cows are kept perpetually pregnant so that they can produce milk, and farms often overlook the animals’ status when they’re finally shipped out for slaughter. Once a living fetal calf is discovered inside a carcass, it’s too late for it to be born. Instead, a technician will be called in who can perform euthanasia and, from there, extract the fetus’s blood.

The resulting substance, known as fetal bovine serum (FBS), amounts to a final gift for humanity.

Among the many other uses for a dead cow from leather to dog treats. Even the manure they produce in life is a side benefit to the eventual tastiness. You can also use them for labor and milk! Neither this article nor any other discussion on vat meat considers that the rest of the cow also has utility.

According to an article in the peer-reviewed online publication Bioprocessing Journal, FBS and other animal sera have led to the development of life-saving remedies like cell and gene therapies. It’s also used in some forms of animal cell culture, including the research and development of new vaccines.

FBS would be a perfect ingredient to include in cultured meat growth media, because it contains key proteins and vitamins that cells need to maintain health and stability. In fact, it can be hard to make cells grow properly without FBS. “In many common culture media, the sole source of micronutrients is fetal bovine serum (FBS),” according to a 2013 article in the peer-reviewed journal BioMed Research International.

For cultivated meat, though, FBS is anathema. Cultured animal protein can’t really be “meat without slaughter” if it’s dependent on an ingredient that’s intertwined with the current, grim realities of commodity beef production. So cultured meat startups also face the challenge of growing their cells in FBS-free media—though that’s not going to be easy. When the alternative protein company Eat Just was approved to begin selling small amounts of cultured meat in Singapore last year, an event that was hailed as a seismic shift by the industry, it still used a small amount of fetal bovine serum in production.

…But the report provides no evidence to explain why these micronutrient costs will fall, and both Wood and Hughes expressed skepticism that they would.

“They say, oh, but these costs are just going to go away in five years or 10 years,” Hughes said. “And there’s no explanation as to how or why.”

Nutrition sources like the one sold on Alibaba will probably never work for animal cell culture, despite the attractive price tag. Because they’re not intended for human consumption, they may include heavy metals, arsenic, organic toxins, and so on. That’s a problem. Animal cells lack a rigid cell wall, so foreign substances that aren’t consumed by the cells—or that don’t kill them outright—likely end up inside the cells. In other words, cells are what they eat: If it’s in the feed, it will end up in the cultured meat.

What these factories need is a digestive system!

Swartz couldn’t immediately explain why the Alibaba powder was listed as a suitable raw ingredient in GFI’s report, though he said that the companies involved would have flagged it if they deemed it to be a problem. Still, he acknowledged that amino acids were going to be “a challenge.”

I can explain that! “Follow the science” means “tell your patrons what they want to hear”. It was Christianity that taught man to search for truth in nature. Everything else is court astrologers lying for a living, from Biblical times to now. Nothing has changed.

There is one faint reason for hope. In his report, Humbird points out that if companies can find a way to derive a full amino acid profile from cheap commodity soy, it could reduce the cost of growth medium macronutrients dramatically. Success on this front is far from assured, however. It could take years of research and development to devise a method of processing soy into forms suitable for cell culture, on a scale large enough to supply the cultured meat industry.

Yeah, no, we’re already being fed soyburgers.

5. “What do you know that we don’t know?”

On June 29, when GFI held an invite-only video call on the future of cultivated meat, it was supposed to be the standard fare: a friendly informational session for industry insiders excited by the technology’s potential. Things did not go as planned.

To kick off the audience Q & A portion of the event, Ricardo San Martin, director of the Alt:Meat Lab at UC Berkeley, began with a skeptical question to Friedrich, one informed by years of research: What do you know that we don’t know? Because, he said, the notion of scaled-up, affordable cell-cultured meat appears at odds with the current science. As San Martin told me later, “I just cannot see it.”

A contentious exchange followed. According to San Martin and another attendee on the call who confirmed his account, Friedrich argued that investor buy-in was the de facto proof that cultivated meat has legs. Major meatpackers, prominent venture capital firms, the government of Singapore: You could trust that these stakeholders had done their due diligence, and they wanted in. He also referred San Martin to GFI’s TEA report, using it to suggest that price parity was possible in the not-so-distant future.

But San Martin kept pressing. In his view, the science is essentially settled: Cultivated meat won’t be economically viable until companies can make cells grow beyond certain widely recognized biological limits. Higher cell density means more meat per batch, which in turn means the number of bioreactors can fall, and the size of the clean room can shrink.

“I’m not saying no one knows how to do it,” San Martin remembered saying. “I’m saying if someone knows, can you please share it with us?”

I love it when reality smacks Elites in the face.

What’s more likely, then, is that companies are still struggling with an inherent, widely documented challenge: the cells’ tendency to limit their own growth. Like all living things, animal cells in culture excrete waste. These so-called catabolites, which include ammonia and lactate, are toxic and can slow cell growth even at low concentrations. As San Martin puts it, “they get inhibited by their own poo-poo.”

“In cell culture for biopharmaceuticals, accumulation of toxic catabolites is a more frequently encountered limit than any physical limit of the bioreactor itself,” Humbird wrote.

The growth vats need an excretory system!

This challenge should sober any investor. Even the legendarily efficient and versatile Chinese hamster ovary cells—an immortalized cell line which has benefitted from more than 60 years of constant research and development—is “probably not efficient enough for low-cost production of bulk cell mass,” according to Humbird.

You learned something new about hamsters today.

“To me this sounds like the story of the Emperor’s Clothes,” he wrote, in an email. “It’s a fable driven by hope, not science, and when the investors finally realise this the market will collapse.”

Sterility isn’t the only challenge that becomes more grave at larger production volumes. Bigger bioreactors all also struggle to provide all of the cells with the same amount of nutrients and oxygen. The only solution is to stir the cells more rapidly, or blow more oxygen in—but both of these approaches can be fatal. Because they lack a rigid cell wall, animal cells are prone to “shear stress”; they’re fragile little things that can are easily torn apart by rising air bubbles, cell-to-cell collisions, and rotating impellers. This need for increased stirring and oxygen has historically put practical limits on bioreactor size—a problem that remains unsolved at scales well below what Tetrick envisions.

Oh that’s right, cells are designed to metabolize oxygen. We need a respiratory system!

“When cells die in large quantities, they kind of turn into this kind of slimy stuff that’s really horrible,” Hughes told me. “You really can’t afford to have that happen.”

8. The price of failure

On September 14, President Joe Biden visited NREL, the federally funded renewable energy lab that contracts Humbird for due diligence analysis. With a row of solar panels, a windmill, and a view of the Rocky Mountains behind him, Biden argued that the next 10 years will be “a decisive decade,” underscoring the need for new infrastructure in a live-streamed address.

“We don’t have a lot of time. We don’t have much more than 10 years,” he said.

His handlers at UN Agenda 2030 have made that VERY clear!

Biden described viewing the wreckage of California’s devastating Caldor fire by helicopter, just days after traveling to Louisiana, New York, and New Jersey to see the destruction from Hurricane Ida. He talked about mudslides washing out a section of Colorado’s I-70 highway, and about parents being afraid to let their children play outside when the air is filled with smoke. He talked about the droughts decimating agricultural communities, and the tropical storms battering cities across the eastern seaboard. He said that 44,000 wildfires had razed 5.6 million acres of U.S. land this year alone, “the size of the entire state of New Jersey burned flat.”

“That’s what the taste of this slop reminds me of.”

It’s easy to get swept up in that sense of possibility. I know, because the media does it, too. Cultured meat is tantalizing in its disruptive potential. The players are charismatic, even visionary in their language; there are tastings to enjoy, lab-grown samples to chew and ponder. The themes—old versus new, upstart versus incumbent, synthetic versus natural—have rich, universal appeal. It’s been so easy to dwell on the radical novelty of it, enhancing our shared sense of the world sliding toward an unfamiliar future. Maybe the arc of history really does bend toward progress. Why reckon with the technical challenges involved, when we can daydream collectively about the potential of meat without slaughter, of eating without guilt, of consumption without consequences?

But the truth is this: For cultured meat to move the needle on climate, a sequence of as-yet-unforeseen breakthroughs will still be necessary. We’ll need to train cells to behave in ways that no cells have behaved before. We’ll need to engineer bioreactors that defy widely accepted principles of chemistry and physics. We’ll need to build an entirely new nutrient supply chain using sustainable agricultural practices, inventing forms of bulk amino acid production that are cheap, precise, and safe. Investors will need to care less about money. Germs will have to more or less behave. It will be work worthy of many Nobel prizes—certainly for science, possibly for peace. And this expensive, fragile, infinitely complex puzzle will need to come together in the next 10 years.

On the other hand, none of that could happen.

It ain’t gonna happen. The Elites will make us eat bugs or something instead, but their “vat meat” dream is dead. Yes, we CAN grow cells in a culture of animal byproducts! But to do it on a large scale with no animal at all, the growth vats will also need a digestive system, excretory system, respiratory system, immune system and circulatory system.

We DO need the rest of the cow to get a steak. That beautiful, self-replicating, affordable bovine of a million uses.

Moo, baby, moo!

This Is Why You Shouldn’t Organize On Facebook

I’ve complained before about the complete, pigheaded insanity of Heritage Americans organizing their opposition to the Elites on the Elites’ social media platforms. Now I have an example to offer of how doing so attracts infiltrators and traitors.

I Joined A Far-Right Group Of Moms. What I Witnessed Was Frightening.

h ttps://

By Phoebe Cohen, 21 December 2021

Here is Cohen’s self-bio:

Phoebe Cohen has walked many paths in life including living in the Gobi Desert as a Peace Corps Volunteer and working as a paramedic in several states. Cohen’s work has been featured in Graphic Medicine, Mutha Magazine, and BorderX. She regularly posts on her website Merry Misandrist. Cohen is a part-time cartoonist, writer and nursing student. She has been known to go up to five hours without coffee.

I suspect she’s Antifa, being both “paramedic in several states” and “part-time cartoonist”. Not to mention her obvious political solidarity with them.

I am in a meeting held by a local right-wing mom’s group. It’s an organization catering to mothers who are bent on protesting at school board meetings to stop the supposedly evil critical race theory agenda from being taught in public schools and address other typically conservative concerns.

Critical race theory is not currently being taught in public schools.


Parents take a stand against FBI crackdown on CRT opponents

h ttps://

By Callie Patteson, 5 October 2021

Parents and politicians are slamming the Department of Justice’s decision to bring in the FBI to investigate a spike in “threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff,” saying the Biden administration is likening their protests of “woke” policies such as Critical Race Theory — as well as mandatory mask wearing — to “domestic terrorism.”

“Dear @TheJusticeDept Merrick Garland and @FBI Director Christopher Wray,” Asra Nomani, vice president of investigations and strategy at Parents Defending Education, posted on Twitter. “This is what a domestic terrorist looks like? You are criminalizing parenting, and you owe the people of America a swift apology.”

She sarcastically signed the missive, “‘Domestic Terrorist,’ Asra Nomani.”

Nomani’s group has been researching how school boards across the US implement “woke” ideas into curricula, such as critical race theory.

In recent months, dozens of parents have taken a stand in school board meetings against the teaching of Critical Race Theory in classrooms and to protest mask mandates, causing some to wonder what the FBI and DOJ are actually investigating.

Sen. Josh Hawley joined with parents on Tuesday in their criticism, accusing Garland of only focusing on “democratic pushback against critical race theory,” rather than threats of violence.

Not only is CRT being taught in the schools, parents who complain are being publicly targeted by the FBI as domestic terrorists.

And what’s the FBI’s only tactic for investigating a potential terrorist organization? Infiltration by informants… such as today’s Phoebe Cohen.

End segue

There are about 20 of us. We are all maskless, all (apparently) white, mostly women and all on the younger side. I’m in my early 40s and I seem to be the oldest person in the room. A group of children, including my son, the only one in a mask, are scampering merrily in a play area down the hall while a young woman with a baby in her front carrier keeps an eye on them. On the wall by the door of our seminar room is a sign. It says: “Children should be: Heard. Respected. Encouraged. Loved. Appreciated. Guided with Compassion. Given Freedom to Learn Without Coercion.”

If only there could have been a clever way to detect this spy…

For several years now I have been worried about the increasing right-wing views that I have noticed in my demographic (white suburban women). Before 2016, I always thought of Nazis as mainly historical villains that belonged in Indiana Jones movies or old news reels or the sad stories my grandfather told me. Now, however, as the last Holocaust survivors are dying, I am aware that fascism is creeping back into the world at large in terrifying ways.

I wanted to know how I could fight against the appallingly stupid yet dangerously widespread disinformation that is entrancing many of my friends and neighbors.

All enemies of feminism must be simultaneously lethal threats and boorish clowns.

Basic facts about COVID-19 are being dismissed by whole states as part of the “liberal mainstream corporate media.” Bodies from COVID victims were stacking up in ICUs…


…yet I was still called a “child abuser” by people on the street because I made my son wear a mask.


Skipping her antiracist rants of racist white people who racistly insist that they’re the least racist people on the planet, and her wishing to punish our racism with racial genocide…

To learn more, I [identified and] joined a local right-wing Facebook group for moms. It’s a private group that requires aspiring members to answer some questions before they’re granted entry. One question was “Why do you want to join?” I replied, “I want to be more involved with my kids’ school.” A week passed and then a moderator for the group contacted me privately. “Can you be more specific about what issue most concerns you?”

Yikes. Security was apparently very tight with this group. They weren’t going to let just any mom glide in using a few generic answers.

“Hello, is this the right-wing racist mother’s co-op? I want to join for generic reasons!”

“I’m mostly interested in issues that involve keeping kids physically in school,” I messaged back. “Zoom school was devastating for my kid and I don’t want that to happen again.” I wasn’t lying about any of that. It’s one of the few opinions I share with many conservative parents.

The moderator sent me a thumbs-up emoji and let me into the group.

Sigh, they DID let her in with just a few generic answers.

Once inside, I found the members were all stripes of Republican and I was pleasantly surprised to see opinion was not monolithic in the group. Several moms argued against the more far-right posters. One woman posted an objection to children reading “To Kill a Mockingbird” in class. “Divisive Concepts,” she wrote with a broken heart emoji. Underneath was a screenshot of a direct message from someone who appeared to be a student that read, “I’m in English right now. We’re currently reading ‘To Kill a Mockingbird.’ There’s a part where Calpurnia brings the kids to church with her and another black woman is being extremely racist towards Scout and Jem. My teacher was saying it was not racism because white people have a higher power over black people in society and that black people can’t be racist.”

I had to read that damned mocking-book FOUR YEARS IN A ROW ACROSS TWO DIFFERENT SCHOOLS. The fourth time I didn’t even open it, just aced the tests from memory alone. Despite that, I didn’t understand the imagery until much later. They can make me read the propaganda but they cannot make me comprehend it!

There were several indignant emoji reactions in response to this post. One mom, however, pushed back. “Well,” she commented, “the woman at the church complained that Calpurnia had brought white children to the Black church, possibly one of the few places Black people felt any sense of freedom and safety. It’s a little absurd to call the woman racist, given the context.” This comment got a couple “likes” and no pushback.

Another surprise I found in the Facebook group was that some huge media outlets were giving them a platform. One of the founders of the group posted that she had done an interview with The New York Times as part of a story on parental rights.

The New York Times! I was dumbfounded. None of the women who ran the pro-Democrat “Indivisible” groups in my town had even managed to get an interview with the local paper!

Heehee. “I joined this group to prove what losers they are… and THEY got INTERVIEWED by the BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!!”

I scanned the comments and my eyes nearly popped out of my head.

“It’ll be fine,” another mom wrote after the initial poster expressed concern about The New York Times possibly misquoting her. “It’s a lesson I learned the hard way after the BBC screwed me.”

The BBC! The BBC was talking to these women?

I had to know more.

Unfortunately a few of the moms may have become suspicious of me. Perhaps I had “liked” too many comments by moms pushing back against the anti-CRT posts. Perhaps some moderators had found the very liberal comments that I had posted on other public news articles.

Oh, if only there could have been some way, any way at all, to detect a Wokee infiltrator!

In any case, when I expressed interest in joining an in-person roundtable discussion event, I saw that the location of the event suddenly disappeared. I messaged the group moderator about the event location.

“Just a heads up,” she messaged back, “I think most people will not be masking. Is that something you’ll be comfortable with?”

I wondered if she was trying to frighten me off. “Yes, that’s fine,” I replied.

That would be a good test against infiltrators in Current Year. “Group hug, everybody!”

I drove to the meeting with my son. The group moderator had been right. When I joined the meeting, I saw that nobody in the packed room was masked. I gritted my teeth and sat down anyway. I was fully vaccinated and my son wore a mask. He was the only one.

I listened to the speakers at the meeting while they discussed how to run for, campaign and pressure school boards. Many parents bemoaned how they had to pull their kids from public schools over mask mandates and instead enroll them in private schools. It was a common story. I got the impression that most of these families had income levels that allowed them to pay thousands in private school fees because they wanted to take a stand on masks. I was probably the poorest person there.

There was a lot of anger directed at teachers. “Rat out these teachers,” one mother instructed. “Find a lawyer who can challenge these teachers.” Another woman disdainfully noted that teachers “don’t even know what they’re doing half the time. They just pull it off the internet.” A third woman said, “There is no discipline for teachers outside of taking away their credentials.” The battle lines were clearly drawn.

I raised my hand. “What do you say to people who are like, ‘Oh, you’re gonna put bounties on teachers’ heads. You’re marching outside of school board members’ homes with guns. School board members are getting death threats and feeling terrorized’?”

“Hello, I am fellow dissident and please explain how you gun owners are not insurrectionists?”

“Wait, she can’t be a spy because she said she was a fellow dissident!”

Yep, this is exactly the kind of stupid conservative that organizes on Farcebook.

I could see several women visibly flinch at the word “bounty.” One woman said she disliked the term “bounty” but she could see the need for “monetary compensation” for those who turn in teachers that were doing things parents found unacceptable. “There are no repercussions for teachers who break the law,” she said. “If we have to offer monetary compensation for people to report teachers, I see no problem with that. It’s an incentive for people to wake up.”

It wasn’t clear what laws these teachers were supposedly breaking. As far as I could tell, teachers ― like everyone else ― got punished if they broke laws.

Another woman raised her hand. “Look, I know we want to change school boards,” she said, “but elections aren’t until 2023. What do we do until then? We just can’t sit around and let them attack our kids. We have to do SOMETHING.”

I caught a gleam in the woman’s eye I didn’t like. Was there some flirtation with insurrection being suggested here? What, exactly, was she saying?

Another woman nodded. “Listen, we’ve tried playing nice. But they just dig in their heels and dig in their heels. We have to start being not so nice.”

I didn’t like where the discussion was going. The moderator guided the topic back to safer ground. “Be pleasantly persistent,” she smiled. “Be annoying. Be the woman at the school board meetings who always shows up. Be the person who, when the meeting organizers see you, say, ‘Oh, God, her again.’ Be that person. And please try to get people to vote in municipal elections.”

Fair enough. A lot of the roundtable debate felt like a Republican version of a Run for Something meeting. Run for Something was a movement started after Donald Trump won the presidency that was meant to encourage young progressives to start their own campaigns for local political office. This right-wing women’s group seemed to be following the same model, but there was an undercurrent of rage among the group members that I had never seen in a Run for Something meeting.

Despite my uneasiness, I couldn’t help but find myself liking the women in the room. They were charismatic. They were energetic. They had no problem letting my low-functioning autistic son play with their children, which is unfortunately rare among a lot of the other mothers I’ve encountered. But this made me even more uneasy. I realized these women were dangerous precisely because they were so friendly. Their condemnation of history lessons about Ruby Bridges and Jim Crow laws and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was repulsive. They were trying to suppress the truth by labeling the unassailable facts of racism in the U.S. as “divisive.” “Equality,” “diversity” and “inclusion” were not virtues to be celebrated but “trigger words” with a poisonous intent. This nefariously clever bit of relabeling disgusted me. There was a very clear far-right agenda at work here.

A splendid example of how Cultural Marxism’s first victims are the losers who buy into it. Phoebe noticed that these moms were healthy, normal people, then retreated like Smeagol into a dark cave to re-teach herself to hate them.

Groups like the one I joined often appeal to mothers. The pandemic has hit moms especially hard. Lack of child care has resulted in a “she-cession” with thousands of women leaving the workforce to take care of their children. Lonely, frustrated, financially stressed people tend to be prime targets for radical groups. These right-wing women’s groups offer a sense of community and friendship to women who are isolated at home with their kids. It can be frighteningly easy for some people to start nodding along with all the rhetoric about the evils of critical race theory and COVID conspiracy theories if the women espousing them are also offering you coffee and friendship and child care ― and making you feel seen and heard.

It’s easy to attract such people when the alternative Cohen provides is their wholesale extermination.

I am currently still a member of this local right-wing women’s Facebook group. It has helped me to understand where these people are coming from ― and just how motivated they are. My membership could end up being rescinded, however, as I plan to attend a few upcoming school board meetings to defend the accurate and honest teaching of all parts of American history, especially in regard to racism and what it has meant and means to be Black in this country.

I can’t stop thinking about the gleam in that woman’s eye as she said, “We just can’t sit around and let them attack our kids. We have to do something.” Though some people think merely tweeting our outrage or frustration is productive (it’s not), those of us fighting against the far right need to be more aware of how energetic and organized they’re becoming and the lengths they’re willing to go to in order to get their way. Right-wing activists are attending school board meetings in hopes of transforming our children’s education, and, ultimately, their lives and the future of the United States. It’s time for us to be just as active to ensure this doesn’t happen. We must fight for our children’s safety and their right to learn our nation’s history ― even the ugly parts. Especially the ugly parts.

After all, when ugly history gets ignored, it tends to get repeated.

The story of these moms’ lives. Even though they realize the need to defend their children from the Cohens of the world, they still cannot notice a Cohen when she stands up in the middle of the group and falsely accuses them of being terrorists in hopes of getting a couple money quotes on her microphone.

So she can betray them to the FBI like the previous groups of dissidents.

Cuckservatives, you need to stop falling for this treachery. The devilwhores don’t even try to hide what they’re doing. You are so consistently, dangerously stupid that they don’t have to.

Looking Forward: Trends In 2022

I’ve never been accused of being a prophet, yet one must take the best guess at the near future that he can. Some headlines to get us going.

Anger over mask mandates, other covid rules, spurs states to curb power of public health officials

h ttps://

By Amy Goldstein, 25 December 2021

At the entrance to the Lowe’s in a central Ohio strip mall, a bright blue-and-white sign tells customers that, under local ordinances, they must wear a face covering inside. Next door, at Hale’s Ales & Kitchen, a sign asks customers to please be patient with a staff shortage — with no mention of masks.

The city line between Columbus and suburban Hilliard crosses right through the strip mall, Mill Run Square. In Columbus, where the Lowe’s Home Improvement Store lies, the city council early in the coronavirus pandemic created a mask requirement that remains in place. In Hilliard, where Hales is located, the city council has not imposed a mask rule, despite entreaties from the top county health official as coronavirus cases spiked…

At Hale’s Ales & Kitchen, just over the Hilliard line where there is no mask requirement, patrons are asked to wear a face covering voluntarily if they haven’t been vaccinated, workers there said. Chris Hale, the owner, did not return phone calls seeking comment.

That must have been a fascinating experiment. In fact, I wonder if a way to ensure good government in the future would be to reroute as many state and county jurisdiction lines as possible through the middle of every town and city, allowing people to choose between two or even more local governments that are as separated from each other as possible. This would allow people to vote with their feet in addition to whatever participation in government that they’re allowed… which will be ‘none’ when the feet-vote matters most.

As much as I like the concept of armed self-defense, too many people have proven unwilling to drop the hammer without an immediate, mortal threat. We obviously need a different approach to thwarting local tyranny.

Under a new law in Ohio — one of at least 19 states this year that have restricted state or local authorities from safeguarding public health amid the coronavirus pandemic — Franklin County’s health commissioner Joe Mazzola can no longer intervene. The county health department was stripped of its power to compel people to wear masks even as the omicron variant fuels a fifth coronavirus surge in the United States.

“We’ve not been able to put in place the policy that would protect our community,” Mazzola said.

“We’ve not been able to be the Globalist shadow government anymore.” Mazzola has a Bachelor’s in marketing, Master’s in Public Admin and has been in government ever since. Who better to make your lifechanging medical decisions without your input?

The number of states that have passed laws similar to Ohio’s is proliferating fast, from eight identified in one study in May to more than double that many as of last month, according to an analysis by Temple University’s Center for Public Health Law Research. And around the country, many more measures are being debated or being prepared for legislative sessions to start early in the new year.

These laws — the work of Republican legislators — inhibit health officers’ ability to require masks, promote vaccinations or take other steps, such as closing or limiting the number of patrons in restaurants, bars and other indoor public settings. Often, the measures shift those decisions from health experts to elected officials at a time when such coronavirus-fighting strategies have become politically radioactive.

Excellent. I have seen lockdown fatigue happening for myself in Central California… but not Los Angeles. Repeatedly being threatened with job loss gets very old, very quickly.

A new Indiana law gives city councils and county commissions power to overrule local health officials if their efforts to tame the pandemic are more stringent than rules in effect statewide. Tennessee lawmakers have taken away health officials’ ability to decide whether public schools should be closed in an emergency, giving that authority to school boards while also allowing the governor to order all schools to teach students in person.

We have a winner in the Teachers’ Union versus the Bolshevik Indoctrinators matchup! But victory will look like the public schools being closed forever.

And in Arkansas, a statute forbids any state or local official from compelling masks. As the delta variant was racing around in August, the state’s Republican governor, Asa Hutchinson, said he regretted the measure and summoned legislators into a special session to rethink it. The law stayed in place.

Conservatives frame this wave of legislating as a matter of individual liberties. Ohio state Sen. Terry Johnson (R), one of the main sponsors of that state’s new law, said last spring that its purpose is “restoring reasonable checks and balances” and “giving the people of Ohio a voice in matters of public health.”

Over the decades, critics have sought to persuade lawmakers to soften or remove safety measures, such as tobacco regulations, or requirements to wear seat belts or motorcycle helmets.

Burn, Ralph Nader! You one accomplishment in life is GONE!

“But for them to go after the basis of public health authority is pretty new,” said Georges C. Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association.

Health officials say the new laws, targeted at coronavirus-fighting strategies, often carry unintended consequences stretching far beyond the pandemic to thwart health departments‘’ longtime roles, such as maintaining food safety.

In other news, criminals complain that police crimp their style.

In May, Montana, which has several new statutes narrowing health officials’ powers, became the first state to prohibit discrimination based on vaccination status. It applies to any vaccine, not just shots to protect against the coronavirus. It means that employers may ask staff members whether they have been immunized against the virus, but they cannot punish or lay off employees who refuse to disclose their vaccination status or to get the shots. It makes an exception for nursing homes — but not for hospitals or clinics.

When the law took effect May 7, most Montana hospitals were watching the pace of the vaccine rollout and debating whether they needed to make shots essential for their workers. But just east of the Rocky Mountains, Benefis Health System, with two hospitals in Great Falls, had sent a companywide email in April announcing that, unless they had a medical or religious reason, all employees had to receive at least one shot by May 1.

New matchup! Globalism versus nationalism!

Community members staged protests. With the law imminent, Benefis backed off its mandate, according to health-care experts in the state. Benefis declined to comment on its decision.


For all 62 hospitals in the state, the law creates a bind, according to Rich Rasmussen, president of the Montana Hospital Association.

The state’s restrictions collide with what the federal government is ordering hospitals to do. The Department of Health and Human Services created a rule that hospitals and other health facilities with patients insured through Medicare or Medicaid must require their employees to have had at least a first coronavirus shot by Dec. 5.

This explains much about hospital administrators pulling triggers on their staff while simultaneously claiming to be overworked to the point of shutdown.

How are those parallel institutions coming? I need a California dentist who doesn’t demand Coof testing for Unvexxed. Will pay cash up front!

“Hospitals were moving forward with their compliance” with the federal rule, Rasmussen said, because they feared jeopardizing $2.1 billion that flows into the state in Medicare and Medicaid payments, and most hospitals “felt a federal requirement trumped state law.”

A standoff has been averted for now, because two federal courts in November temporarily blocked the HHS requirement as part of lawsuits objecting to the federal rule. Meanwhile, a health system, a few doctors’ practices, several patients and the Montana Medical Association have filed their own lawsuit trying to restore the ability of hospitals and other health providers to compel workers to be vaccinated.

Montana’s hospitals argue they must be able to provide safe environments for their workers and patients.


Officials: Nearly 25% of [Fully Vaccinated] Navy warship crew has COVID-19

h ttps://

By Lolita Baldor, 27 December 2021

About two dozen sailors on a U.S. Navy warship — or roughly 25% of the crew — have now tested positive for COVID-19, keeping the ship sidelined in port at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay in Cuba Monday, according to U.S. defense officials…

The Navy said in a statement Friday that the USS Milwaukee’s crew was “100% immunized” and that all of those who tested positive for COVID-19 were being isolated on the ship away from other crew members.

Those damn unvaccinated keep spreading the plague! If only we could get rid of them, the pandemic would end!

The U.S. officials said Monday that the Navy believes the total vaccination of the crew is the key factor in controlling the outbreak.

The vaxx is KNOWN to be SAFE and EFFECTIVE! Meanwhile, entire ships are being quarantined because the vaxx can’t stop illness or transmission.

Most Americans believe both of those ideas simultaneously.

End segue

Many Montana employers hold a different view.

Nick Checota, a restaurant owner and music promoter who runs KettleHouse Amphitheater, a 4,500-seat outdoor venue on a river bank near Missoula, said his concert policy is to encourage patrons to wear masks and to get vaccinated or tested before attending an event. It is not required. A few bands have canceled because of the lack of vaccine verification, Checota said.

This cowardice is very typical and, unfortunately, precludes any chance of organized opposition.

But he said, “If I’d asked my staff [to be vaccinated], half my employees would have quit. … Individual rights in Montana are very important to people.”

I would prefer an employer whose response would be “Screw your clot shot up your ass”. Perhaps they were filtered out. It wouldn’t help the Narrative to show an employer who was actively defiant yet not in jail, now would it?

The political moves against vaccine requirements are spreading. Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) in November signed a law that forbids employers from requiring workers, job applicants or customers to prove they have been vaccinated. Six days later, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed four bills that prohibit employers and educational institutions from requiring workers or students to be vaccinated against the coronavirus and removes the state health officer’s ability to order vaccinations in a public health emergency.

In Ohio, House Republicans last month passed a bill that would block employers, schools and colleges from requiring workers and students to get vaccinated if they object for “reasons of personal conscience.” Some Republicans in the state Senate are reticent, contending that businesses should be allowed to decide on vaccine policies for themselves.

Senate Bill 22, the Buckeye State’s law in effect since June, splintered the party, pitting lawmakers against Ohio’s GOP governor Mike DeWine. A year ago, DeWine vetoed another bill that would have limited the state’s coronavirus-fighting powers by handing lawmakers power to stop a governor’s public health order and tightly limiting the state health department’s ability to impose quarantines.

The bill contains those features and added restrictions on local health departments. In March, DeWine vetoed that bill, too, saying it “strikes at the heart of local health departments’ ability to move quickly to protect the public from the most serious emergencies Ohio could face.”

This time, the legislature overrode the governor’s veto on S.B. 22 the following day.

DeWhiner got kicked!

In August, the village of Gambier, home to Kenyon College, approved a temporary mask requirement for public buildings, including schools, with a $25 fine for violators. The county sheriff posted on his Facebook page that he had spoken with the mayor “and informed him that deputies will not be citing anyone for violations.”

Sheriff David Shaffer’s Facebook announcement drew more than 700 replies, mirroring the fevered views that divide the nation over public health during the pandemic.

“So … you are elected to decide which law to enforce?” one woman wrote.

Nuremburg Code be like that, bitch. Although it must be said that even liberal Sheriffs are refusing to enforce such requirements. It’s anybody’s guess whether their motivation is a simple manpower issue, not wanting to make violent criminals out of thus-far-peaceful citizens or if they’re upset at their government’s “defund the police” threats. “Stop going after thugbait armed robbers and start persecuting the people trying to live a normal life, or we’ll cut your funding again! Maybe we’ll cut it anyway ‘cuz you be white and rayciss!”

Many praised the sheriff. “The more you protect our God-given freedoms,” one man wrote, “the greater my respect for you. … Please continue to defy tyrants who are trying to destroy our freedom.”

Such sentiment — and the Ohio law it yielded — leave the state’s health officials feeling impotent as each pandemic wave arrives.

Enjoy these good times, health officials. If you manage to escape Nuremberg Two then Father God will thwart you a new Hell on Judgment Day. You poison children. Repent fast, hard and NOW.

In September, Jack Pepper, administrator of the Athens City-County Health Department, worried as his southeastern Ohio jurisdiction, which contains both historical Ohio University and rural poverty, suffered the largest surge in coronavirus hospitalizations and deaths of the pandemic so far.

“It would have been nice,” Pepper said, if the department could have limited the number of patrons in restaurants, as it had when establishments reopened after a pandemic shutdown early on. “Those powers are all gone.”

Those powers were as useless as you currently are, Jack.

New Jersey agrees to pay $53 million for killing 119 Veterans…

h ttps://

Posted by Kane on December 26, 2021

New Jersey is set to pay approximately $53 million in settling claims its negligence contributed to the deaths of over 100 veterans in state-run homes. The settlement reached this week involved the families of 119 residents of veterans homes in Paramus and Menlo Park, according to attorney Paul da Costa. Da Costa’s firm represented 72 of the claimants, who will receive about $32 million in total. The families had filed notices of intent to sue but hadn’t yet formally filed lawsuits, da Costa said.

“This settlement of course does not replace their lost loved ones who served their countries honorably, but it certainly represents a good measure of civil justice,” da Costa said. “My clients do take satisfaction in the fact that there has been a resolution that they believe gives a voice to their lost loved ones.”

Over 200 residents in the homes died amid the pandemic, and Gov. Phil Murphy’s (D) administration was blamed after instructing the homes not to turn away patients who tested positive.

That’s a criminally softball way of saying “Governor Murphy seeded the plague in elderly group homes.”

The order was eventually rescinded.

The Justice Department later issued a letter to Murphy asking about its nursing home death count, saying it was launching an investigation into the state’s veterans homes “after receiving what it described as incomplete answers to an earlier request for data,” the NBC report continued.

Sourced from the linked article.

The official reason for the lawsuit was blaming staff for negligent things like not changing gloves between patients, rather than seeding the plague in vulnerable populations in order to manufacture scare numbers for the lockdowns, but an admission of liability is a good start to Nuremberg Two. We have many legal precedents that charging criminal AND civil penalties for the same action, is not double jeopardy.

Maybe next time, we can stick the guilty with the bill instead of taxpayers.

Establishment Media Outlets Crash Without Donald Trump in the White House

h ttps://

No Donald Trump in the White House to drive the news cycle means establishment media outlets are being abandoned, 2021 year-end figures released Monday reveal, as multinational corporate control of America’s news is rejected by the very audiences it seeks to engage.

AP reports cable news networks were the main form of evening entertainment for millions of Americans last year. Now those legacy television outlets, alongside digital and print news organizations are suffering in a post-Trump world. Big time.

In 2021, weekday prime-time viewership dropped 38 percent at CNN, 34 percent at Fox News Channel and 25 percent at MSNBC, according to the Nielsen company.

This loss was despite mass lockdowns and more people being forced to stay at home and seek their news from established sources, all while the passage of time keeps showing Trump was ahead of his critics on a host of contentious issues.

The decline was less steep but still significant at broadcast television evening newscasts: 12 percent at ABC’s “World News Tonight” and the “CBS Evening News;” 14 percent at NBC’s “Nightly News,” Nielsen said.

Everybody that might leave those venues, already did. Comparable to the mainline Protestant churches being nothing but old witches spending old endowments. I would guess that the cultural Marxists have about 30% of the U.S. population under total control, a number that will rise steadily as they indoctrinate the schoolchildren, but parasites lack the ability to play the long game.

All those numbers stand in stark contrast to 2020 when the presidential election and coronavirus pandemic combined to drive intense audience engagement to traditional, establishment news outlets.

Pushing Trump off Twitter and Facebook also worked to dilute his news presence to the loss of mainstream publishers who are finding President Joe Biden is just not engaging audiences like his predecessor.

Biden can’t engage an electrical socket with a screwdriver. In the rain!

It’s no secret that the Bidenreich is in desperate need of a charismatic villain. In a cruel twist of irony, conservatives could best help their Marxist allies by taking a few of their scalps. But there’s just no fight in them.

And that’s where I begin my predictions for 2022: our regime NEEDS a villain NOW. Not in November for the midterms, NOW. Trump isn’t working anymore; he gets booed by his own crowd.

Along with that is the local governments beginning to oppose the Plandemic. The Bidenreich’s biggest advantage is that it controls most elections; its biggest disadvantage is that the courts are now a coin toss so they can’t be used as a “legislator of last resort” anymore. The simple solution is vote fraud in the midterms cementing their hold on power but I doubt they have time.

Fomenting a foreign war is a classic solution to domestic instability but here’s the problem. Whether Taiwan or Ukraine goes hot first, the other will go hot instantly. Russia and China are allies against USA and this opportunity to force USA into a global two-front war will be too good to pass up. Save us, vibrant preggo-men of the United States Navy! We who can’t tell your gender salute you!

The smart guess they’re going to play for time to the midterms. Which means they need a major political shake-up. Get rid of Potato Joe? In fact, my deadpool on Joe says he’ll die between Jan. 1 and March 1 and I’m still feeling good about it. This would also explain why the D.C. crowd has had so much anger for Harris. She has, let us be kind, not grown into her role as Vice Puppet.

Shaking up the Oval Office would be an excellent play for time, even sympathy. And what a great excuse to start a war, if his handlers (read: Barak Obama) be so inclined.

Meanwhile, average Americans… I just don’t get them. They cannot see past their noses. Ideas like “we should distrust them because they lie to us” and “when the vote-counting is done without witnesses, that means the counting is fraudulent” are difficult concepts for them to grasp. They are not awakening except as the bread and circuses fail.

As we’ve seen above, government leaders are finally cracking down on the illegitimate authority of health bureaucrats WITHOUT FIRING A SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Likewise, all the anti-CRT pressure I’ve seen is “put a fig leaf over it, you Marxist, before you go back to teaching my kids.”

Looking Back: NORAD Tracking Santa

In the wake of Christmas, it’s time to sit back, relax a moment and take stock of our lives. This post looks at where we’ve been; the next will look at where we’re going.

Don’t read this for the content. The content is hatchet-job slime. Instead, read this to consider the moral bullets that you’ve successfully dodged for two years! Had you not stood your ground against lies and wickedness, had you filled your brain with the Approved Narratives, you could have ended up like THIS joyless Bob Marley!

NORAD’s Christmas Eve Santa Claus tracker needs to end

h ttps://

By Hayes Brown, 24 December 2021

This Christmas Eve, the United States military will be busy “tracking” Santa Claus’ sleigh as it makes its reindeer-powered journey across American airspace. What’s today known as the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, has been doing so each holiday season for over 60 years. If I had my way, this year would be the last.

Which of the following best describes your motivation?

  1. The servicemen manning North America’s defense grid instead of spending Christmas with families should not be allowed any morale-boosting because they probably voted for Trump.
  2. Santa Claus is a secret code for Christ Jesus.
  3. Bah humbug.
  4. Bah whitey-bug.
  5. It’s wrong to lie to kids except to get them vaxxed.
  6. Santa is real and using his white privilege to not drive on racist highways!
  7. Santa is real and leading an insurrection!
  8. Santa gave me a stocking full of coal, knowing that I’m a Climate Change activist!
  9. Nobody made a big statue of Santa that we can tear down so this is the next best thing.
  10. I’m an ungrateful, toxic, militantly atheist piece of dogshit that hates to see people be happy.

Take your time. There are no wrong answers because ALL of them are political. And this guy is consumed with politics.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a Scrooge or some kind of anti-Santa advocate prone to humbuggery…

Hold that thought.

…and I acknowledge that the story behind how NORAD’s predecessor started the tradition is cute: a typo in a newspaper for Sears’ Santa hotline was the number for a secret line of communication, originally designed to give the orders to launch a nuclear onslaught against and/or in response to the Soviet Union. Heartwarming stuff, folks.


[Skip Trump Derangement]

No, I’d prefer we end the tradition because it’s about time that we decoupled St. Nick from the world’s most powerful military.

Nobody associates Santa Claus with the United States military. YOU’RE A SCROOGE! Humbugging that the NORAD tracker is a sneaky publicity stunt!

American culture is saturated with a desire to associate the military with the saccharine. We get videos of soldiers returning home to their pets or children but never questions about why they were deployed for so long or what threat they were fighting, military jets flying over NFL games give us an injection of jingoist testosterone before more regionally focused battles of testosterone are played on the field; and we get the Netflix movie “Operation Christmas Drop,” a seasonally themed rom-com that cheerfully seeks to boost approval for America’s military base in Guam.

Politics has consumed this guy entirely, to the point there’s no joy in his life.

He sees soldiers returning to their families and complains they aren’t depicted hating his enemies.

He sees planes doing fly-bys at events and seethes that the crowd is pointing and cheering, because that’s goodwill for the OTHER team!

He watches a silly movie on Netflix and grinds his teeth that a political faction other than his own is getting screentime.

There’s no peace left in his life, no time for doubt or reflection or simple pleasures. There is only the politics of envy, of making other people less so he can be more at their expense. Even as an opinion piece, this should never have seen the light of day.

[Lies about the Pentagon whitewashing murder sprees with toy deliveries to Micronesia omitted.]

Earlier this month, a friend of mine mused on Twitter: “wonder if this will be the year NORAD finally kills Santa.” It’s a great joke, which prompts this hypothetical: If the Air Force did accidentally target Santa, say during one of his stops outside the U.S., would we hear about it? Would the resulting loss of life be deemed “credible”? Or would it just be another case investigated and tucked away in the Pentagon’s files?

This is the end stage of the collectivist path: joking about killing Santa in ways that make an opposing government faction look bad, instead of having a laugh at the NORAD tracker and moving along.

This is what we avoided by standing firm upon our convictions: the state of, well, not having any convictions, merely animal appetites and a lust for worldly power. What a change it is, to seek the next life at the expense of this one! To see one’s neighbor as a fellow immortal, not a competitor for limited resources!

Raise a pint of cheer to your lips, lads! They did everything they could to twist you into one of them… and here you are at the end of 2021, humanity and soul intact, with righteous convictions that you have suffered to maintain, while they can’t even look at Santa without monkey screeches of pain! This year has been a psychological war like humanity has never seen before, decades in planning, overseen by fallen princes of Hell itself, aided by the collapse or infiltration of every authority meant to protect the innocent, and YOU ARE STILL HERE!

The fallen will never understand what it feels like, to pass the test of virtue. How we saints can acknowledge that it was both cruel hardship and totally worth it.

The fact that we can’t say with any certainty what the Pentagon would do isn’t exactly comforting, and no matter how absurd the hypothetical, the military wrongly killing someone is more frequent an occurrence than its interest in the delivery of toys. So out of concern for Santa’s safety, out of exasperation at the Pentagon’s propaganda and because at Christmas you tell the truth, let’s have NORAD release Santa from its annual pantomimed surveillance.

He can’t enjoy Christmas. Santa is a mere excuse, a prop for the moment, a momentary convenience. “Humanity has reached the 11th hour! Desperate measures must be taken and sacrifices must be made! So *ahem, ahem* NORAD is tracking Santa in order to murder him!!! Not really, but if you believe that lie then my faction will get a +1.”

By having Heaven as our hope, we avoid these traps of material gain, zero-sum thinking and 11th Hour fanaticism. To say nothing of the ability to have fun.

2021 has been a long road… and we have become the winners, the saints and the best of our generation, no matter our station in life, because we have endured for that hope of Heaven. Just as Christ did before us.

“Because of the increase in wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.” -Matthew 24:12-13

Group Calls for Car Crash Dummy Equity, Claims Male Body too Favored

h ttps://

By Paul Bois, 17 December 2021

Death wish or cry for help? Discuss.

An advocacy group has written a letter to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg calling for greater equity in car crash dummy tests, claiming that the male body has been far too favored, leading to needless deaths of women.

I once joked that there are four genders: male, female, freak and robot. It appears that somebody took me seriously and robots are now being gender-discriminated against for not being female.

You freaks!

The letter from Vehicle Equity Rules in Transportation (VERITY NOW), co-chaired by former Republican Congresswoman Susan Molinary, claimed that vehicle crash tests have not adequately taken into account of the harmful effects that collisions have on female bodies.

What? Funbags don’t double as airbags? Somebody should pay me to study this!

The letter stated: “Government standards for vehicle crash testing are outdated and unequal, causing thousands of women to be needlessly killed and injured every year. This deadly gender bias in vehicle safety is unacceptable. It is time to stop studying this issue and fix it – now.

“Females are not just smaller versions of males. Due to differences in physiology and driver positioning, women’s and men’s bodies behave differently in a crash,” it continued.

Differences in temporal relativity, not physiology. Male drivers observe female bodies bouncing before the collision happens. Then he drives into something and everything else starts bouncing.

The letter further argued that women have a greater chance of suffering whiplash in a car crash “relative to males of the same age” and that women had a greater chance of dying from a neck injury. It further lamented how standard seatbelts do not accommodate [third-trimester] pregnant women…

Maybe preggos should stop driving for a couple months when they’re swollen like an allergic beekeeper? Besides, I’ve seen those gigantic SUVs favored by impoverished single mothers. Inertia is totally on HER side.

According to Fox News, a spokesperson for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) insisted that the organization takes into account various body types when testing for safety and provided a breakdown of the tests using female body types.

“Safety is central to NHTSA’s mission and we are committed to improving safety for all road users. NHTSA does use a female crash test dummy in our compliance frontal testing program,” said a spokesperson for the NHTSA.


However, activists believe that female bodies should be tested more in the driver’s seat and the NHTSA promised to expand testing capabilities for a wider range of drivers.

Knowing their motivation is half the battle! “Down with Patriarchy!”

Admit it, female, you prefer to be a backseat driver! And NHTSA knows it!

“NHTSA is working to develop crash simulation and human body models to represent a wide range of occupant size, sex, and ages. These tools will be used to identify targets for future safety efforts,” the spokesman said.

Wymyn need either crash test dummies for 42 genders multiplied by nine months of pregnancy, or a slap upside the head. Or, THEY NEED TO VOLUNTEER FOR LIVE CRASH TESTING LIKE MEN ALREADY DO! EQUITY, BITCHES!

The First Casualty Of Omicron Is Truth

Alec Baldwin better find an organ donor fast if he wants to continue being a better killer than flu season.

Then again, he might have time to make a sandwich or finish that rusty movie. This is an unusually clear picture of the information war being waged against humanity.

Media report first man ‘to die of the Omicron variant’ — but public health officials can’t confirm he died from COVID

h ttps://

By Chris Enloe, 22 December 2021

Just in time for Christmas, somebody dieeeeed of Chiiiiinaballs!!! Was this an X-mas gift to Covidians, a Christmas threat to Normal Americans (ill Deuce Biden made one already) or simple retaliation for the failure of Build Back Butthurt?

When Texas health officials reported Monday that a man died after testing positive for the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the media jumped all over the story and claimed he was the first in America “to die of the Omicron variant.”

Various headlines blared similar messages this week, claiming that a Texas man between the ages of 50 and 60 who was not vaccinated against COVID became the first American to fall victim to the Omicron variant.

Reuters: “Texas’ Harris County records its first death linked to Omicron variant”
Business Insider: “The first American to die of the Omicron variant was an unvaccinated Texas man who had previously caught COVID-19”
Newsweek: “First Omicron Death in U.S. Was Reinfection—A Warning to Those Who’ve Already Had COVID
KHOU-TV: “Unvaccinated man with health issues in Harris County becomes first known omicron death in US”
Washington Post: “Unvaccinated Houston man’s death may be first attributed to omicron in U.S.”
Axios: “First confirmed U.S. Omicron death recorded in Texas”
The Independent: “Unvaccinated Texas man first in US to die of Omicron variant”

Of seven media outlet headlines, five noted he was Unvaxx and only one that he’d already been sickly. I am tempted to cite CNN to make it six of eight without bothering to check.

But unlike professional journalists, I have standards. *checks*

First Omicron-related death in US was an unvaccinated person

h ttps://

Six of eight. All is well with the world, or at least baseline, which means Alec Baldwin has STILL killed more people than Oni Crud.

Importantly, Harris County public health officials did not say the man died from the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Rather, the man died after testing positive for the Omicron variant, meaning he died with it.

In fact, Martha Marquez, a spokesperson for the Harris County Public Health Department, confirmed Tuesday that health officials are not saying the man died from the Omicron variant; simply, they reported the death of a man who was Omicron-positive when he passed away.

Confirmed: Legacy Media LIES! Also, water is WET!

“We can’t confirm that the patient from COVID, but we can say that he was Omicron-positive at the time of his death,” Marquez explained.

“This information comes from our epidemiologists, who are the ones who get the reports. They have to do a very meticulous investigation, because, you know, they do take this very much at heart,” she added. “They are telling me that they cannot say that COVID was the absolute cause of death.”

Segue to original press release

Harris County Reports First COVID-19 Omicron Variant-Related Death

h ttps://

Harris County Public Health (HCPH) is reporting the first COVID-19 Omicron-variant associated death in the County.

“We get to be first! Okay, staff, you can go on vacation now.”

The death reported this afternoon was of a man between the ages of 50-60 years old who was unvaccinated and had been infected with COVID-19 previously. The individual was at higher risk of severe complications from COVID-19 due to his unvaccinated status…


…and had underlying health conditions.


“Our thoughts and prayers are with the patient’s family, and we extend our deepest sympathies,” said Barbie Robinson, HCPH Executive Director. “This is a reminder of the severity of COVID-19 and its variants. We urge all residents who qualify to get vaccinated and get their booster shot if they have not already.”

Barbie would have done better to say “we urge all elderly people to manage their diabetes well”. Heh, her name really is Barbie. I always wondered what she did for a living, besides sponging off Ken, because she was no stay-at-home mom now was she? It makes sense that she’d be a hosital… admi…

*GunnerQ suddenly vomits, goes into seizure, collapses on the ground and stops breathing*

Second Victim Of Omicron Is Confirmed To Be An Unvaccinated Blogger Who Spread Vaccine Disinformation

h ttps://

Whew… unnh… sorry about that. Pro-tip, adding Nyquil to eggnog will not compensate for its being past expiry date. I had to save the whiskey for the weekend and didn’t have any other alcohol in the house.

Bachelor life, baby. It’s an underlying condition.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have reported that the Omicron variant is widespread. There is still a lot of unknown information about the Omicron variant…

…though this case has been confirmed through additional testing that may not reflect the total number of cases in our community…. The Omicron variant was first identified in South Africa in November 2021 and currently is a concern for public health. 

End segue

Harris County public health officials have not said anything more about the death, nor have they revealed the “underlying conditions” the deceased man had. This is important because, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains, up to 95% — or perhaps even more — of all COVID deaths have happened among people with co-morbidities or other underlying diseases.

“There were co-morbidities or other conditions listed on the death certificate for as many as 95% of all COVID-19 deaths,” the agency explains. “The other 5% of death certificates in which COVID-19 was the only condition listed was likely related to a lack of detail listed about other conditions present at the time of death.”

“All of you unvaccinated are going to die of Omicron like him… just like you didn’t with Delta”.

Anagrams: Delta + Omicron = Media Control.

Or, Omicron = Moronic.

Fisking the Letter Of Archbishop Vigano

Vigano’s letter to Heritage USA has been making the rounds. You know me, I had to read it for myself. I took it as a peace offering but not a call to action.

h ttps://

19 December 2021

DEAR AMERICAN PEOPLE, DEAR FRIENDS, for two years now, a global coup has been carried out all over the world, planned for some time by an elite group of conspirators enslaved to the interests of international high finance. This coup was made possible by an emergency pandemic that is based on the premise of a virus that has a mortality rate almost analogous to that of any other seasonal flu virus, on the delegitimization and prohibition of effective treatments, and on the distribution of an experimental gene serum which is obviously ineffective, and which also clearly carries with it the danger of serious and even lethal side effects.

I rather think it was the other way around, that the conspiracy enslaved finance and pharma. If the Plandemic was a mere scam then it wouldn’t be pushing so hard. The key to working a scam is to get what you can and then get out. “We have a vaxx! Oops, turns out it’s not so safe. We meant well and no refunds” would have been Big Pharma’s ideal exit strategy. People would have been angry but then gotten over it.

Instead, governments are now making death threats in Big Pharma’s name, to force the clot shot on everybody, their children and the animals in the zoo. That ain’t gonna be forgiven or bribed away. Big Pharma is going down.

Similarly, those super-hedge funds are going to take the dollar’s collapse in the hoo-haws. All its wealth reserves wiped. What good is a million property deeds without an army to enforce them? And if you have one then you never needed that paperwork.

Either the conspirators are not the current players or they’re big-time screwed.

We all know how much the mainstream media has contributed to supporting the insane pandemic narrative, the interests that are at stake, and the goals of these groups of power: reducing the world population, making those who survive chronically ill, and imposing forms of control that violate the fundamental rights and natural liberties of citizens. And yet, two years after this grotesque farce started, which has claimed more victims than a war and destroyed the social fabric, national economies, and the very foundations of the rule of law, nothing has changed in the policies of Nations and their response to the so-called pandemic.

Last year, when many still had not yet understood the gravity of the looming threat, I was among the first to denounce this coup, and I was promptly singled out as a conspiracy theorist.

Take your victory lap, it is well earned.

Today more and more people are opening their eyes and beginning to understand that the emergency pandemic and the “ecological emergency” are part of a criminal plan hatched by the World Economic Forum, the UN, the WHO, and a galaxy of organizations and foundations that are ideologically characterized as clearly anti-human and – this needs to be said clearly – anti-Christian.

The electoral fraud of the 2020 presidential election against President Trump has shown itself to be organic to this global operation, because in order to impose illegitimate restrictions in violation of the principles of law it was necessary to be able to make use of an American President who would support the psycho-pandemic and support its narrative. The Democratic Party, part of the deep state, is carrying out its task as an accomplice of the system, just as the deep church finds in Bergoglio its own propagandist.

This is where Vigano impressed me the most, denouncing the illegitimate Pope and admitting the existence of the Deep Church… aka the Lavender Mafia. We will all be Protestants before this is over.

The recent rulings of the Supreme Court and the autonomous action of some American states – where the vaccination obligation has been declared unconstitutional – give us hope that this criminal plan can collapse and that those responsible will be identified and tried: both in America as well as in the whole world.

The Federal government is not going to survive, either. Its judges nullify each other until nobody knows what’s what. Its legislators are unmedicated feminists screeching death threats at every shadow and statue of Heritage America while proudly ignoring systemic failures. Its executive officers would be more popular and reliable if replaced with cardboard props that (in Biden’s case) don’t need sudden diaper changes and (in Harris’ case) don’t speak.

Like a fair democratic election, the real winner is going to be None Of The Above.

How was it possible to arrive at such a betrayal? How have we come to be considered enemies by those who govern us, not in support of the common good, but rather to feed a hellish machine of death and slavery? The answer is now clear: throughout the world, in the name of a perverted concept of freedom, we have progressively erased God from society and laws. We have denied that there is an eternal and transcendent principle valid for all men of all times, to which the laws of States must conform.

Vigano is wrong here. This is not how the betrayal happened. Evil has been the story of all humanity. Recurring wickedness, entropy, generational stupidity, obvious warnings gone unheeded, monologuing psycho Bond villains, as tedious today as in the Books of Kings. There has always been corruption making inroads.

What is happening now is not a new corruption. It is that nothing is retarding the growth of the same old corruptions. The salt of the earth is gone, to use Christ’s metaphor… salt was used as a preservative back then, preventing rot… and this is not the fault of anybody loyal to Christ.

It’s not that institutional evil exists. It’s that the Church, as an evil-restraining force in society, no longer does.

I have witnessed this for myself in California, in the form of homosexuality normalization. The Church was curiously unable to defend society from that obvious moral threat, doing little more than quoting a line from Leviticus that pastors themselves admitted to being uncomfortable with.

Was there something that *I* was supposed to do about that? Even the credentialed ‘good guys’ didn’t want my opinion.

Now, as we see what is happening around us, we understand how mendacious were the promises of progress and freedom made by those who destroyed Christian society, and how deceptive was the prospect of a new Tower of Babel, built not only without regard for God but even in direct opposition to Him. The infernal challenge of the Enemy is repeated over the centuries unchanged, but it is doomed to inexorable failure. Behind this millennial conspiracy, the adversary is always the same, and the only thing that changes are the particular individuals who cooperate with him.

It’s possible that Vigano and I are in agreement here. I’ve noted before that modern communications have undone the protections that God imposed at the Tower of Babel but Vigano didn’t give his own take on the idea. Perhaps he was thinking of the provocative shape of U.N. headquarters.

Dear American brothers and sisters! Dear Patriots! this is a crucial moment for the future of the United States of America and of the whole of humanity.

I am thinking, not yet.

…The pandemic emergency, the farce of global warming and the green economy, and the economic crisis… This problem is essentially moral; indeed, it is religious. We must put God back in the first place not only in our personal lives, but also in the life of our society.

This is false guilt. Nothing we do can set Western civilization back on its rails.

Were you not listening to yourself, when you first prayed to God? Admitting you were weak, ignorant, flawed and fallen? Why then, do you talk as if God’s plan will fail without human effort? Reality is a factory for manufacturing saints. The saints do not run the factory, we merely try to survive it as we are shaped by it until it chucks us free.

Our mission has not changed. Do the best you can with what God gives you. Become who you want to be for eternity. Love what is good and hate what is evil. Not “rebuild My empire or risk My displeasure”.

These natural moral principles of the Greco-Roman world found their fulfillment in Christianity, which built Western civilization by giving them a supernatural impetus. Christianity is the strongest defense against injustice, the strongest garrison against the oppression of the powerful over the weak, the violent over the peaceful, and the wicked over the good, because Christian morality makes each of us accountable to God and our neighbor for our actions, both as citizens and as rulers.

He’s not really selling me here. Only a fool uses Christianity as a path to worldly results. The strongest defense against the powerful over the weak is a rifle in the hands of the weak. Not Christianity.

Hi, I’m an American and this letter is addressed to me!

The Son of God, whose Birth we will celebrate in a few days, became Incarnate in time and in history in order to heal an ancient wound, and to restore by Grace the order broken by disobedience. His social Kingship was the generating principle of the ordo Christianus that for two centuries now has been fiercely fought against by Freemasonry: because the Revolution it promotes is chaos; it is disorder; it is infernal rebellion against the divine order so as to impose Satan’s tyranny.

He thinks the conspirators are Freemasons while I would guess they’re the Davos crowd. Not the Jews, surprisingly. While they excel at teaching wickedness, they always seem to get unseated by their students. The devil must be a harsher mistress than even Lady Luck.

My appeal for an Anti-Globalist Alliance – which I renew today – aims precisely to constitute a movement of moral and spiritual rebirth which will inspire the civil, social and political action of those who do not want to be enslaved as slaves to the New World Order.


Viggy, if you want to denounce, unseat and replace that anti-Pope then do it already. Light that votive candle! If instead you want to walk away and build a second Catholic Church then you’ll find out how much fun that was for the first round of Protestants.

What you will not do, Archbishop of the most powerful religious organization on the planet, is tell ordinary Joes like me that WE need to create that replacement organization because YOU with all your authority and resources cannot.

I’ve even been trying to network. My blog is right here. I’ve made a couple good friends through it but none that live near me. Meanwhile, my readership triples when I get a repost after five years of diligent posting.

…It is mainly the laity and all people of good will – each in the professional and civil role he holds – who must coordinate and organize together to make a firm but peaceful resistance, so as not to legitimize its violent repression by those who today hold power.

Yeah, like the J6 protest! *checks if Vigano is a honeypot* Probably not, since he really was an early voice against the lockdowns, yet he hasn’t been driven out by Frankie either. Seriously, a big, visible, named organization with a membership roster that self-polices to ensure it’s not a threat to the Powers That Be… such a foolish idea, it jars one out of the novelty of a world leader calling out the Deep State.

He’s completely off track here. The way to defeat all the wicked evildoers currently in the halls of power is… nothing.

Do nothing.

Grab a cold beer, put your feet up and watch that sucker burn.

Biden Butt Buddies Building Back Badder, they got no exit strategy. Their own allies hate their stinking guts, literally in Potato Joe’s case. All their power is currently being expended on keeping the lid from blowing off all their perversions, thefts and abuses. Yep, that sucker’s gonna blow soon. It won’t be fun for anybody but especially those who didn’t prepare or are otherwise dependent on the system. But it will pass.

What worries me is the next system, the one that will replace our Weimar-esque current regime. If the existence of the Davos crowd is any indication, 1. the psychopaths also know this regime is withering and 2. the psychopaths are jockeying for the position of Uncle Joe Stalin Of the World. Now with agitated demon action!

It would make sense for the final antichrist to appear as a fake savior. I plan to be very suspicious of whoever rides to the rescue of all those poor Covidians in desperate need of a new god and a new income. He will probably be the one who gives Pfizer & Pfriends a double dose of its own medicine. It would endear him to a great many people overnight.

Be worthy heirs of the great Archbishop Fulton Sheen, and do not follow those of your Pastors who have betrayed the mandate they have received from Our Lord, who impose iniquitous orders on you or who remain silent before the evidence of an unheard of crime against God and humanity.

We’re already (not) there, Archbishop. It’s why all our churches are going down in debt and flames. That’s the system we Prots worked up, abandoning institutional evildoers to starve, and it was a good one… just disturbing when it happened in all of our churches independently. Regardless, the Churchians are already clucking nervously over who’s gonna pay their pensions.

Me on my blog, I’m just twisting the knife.

So no, Vigano, we don’t need your Alliance if it even exists. But never mind! Thank you for noticing our common problem and demonstrating openness to joining with the people your organization has traditionally despised. It is good to make peace between brothers and for Christmas, no less. We’ll need cooperation when the new savior of humanity makes his move.

He’ll be the one to beat, because humanity already has the Savior it needs:

May this Holy Christmas illuminate your minds and inflame your hearts before the Infant King who lays in the manger. And just as the choirs of the Angels and the homage of the Magi united with the simple adoration of the Shepherds, so also today your commitment to the moral rebirth of the United States of America –one Nation under God – will have the blessing of Our Lord and will gather those who govern you around you. Amen.

A Merry Christmas From A Socialist Heaven

Being quarantined in a Maldives villa sounds dreamy – but it’s turning into a nightmare

h ttps://

By Tamara Abraham, 20 December 2021

I am writing this on the deck of my Maldives beach villa, looking out at pristine white sand fringed with palm trees and turquoise sea. It is idyllic, exactly what I hoped for when we booked a last-minute package break earlier this month with my parents, as well as my sister and her family.

There is a catch though. I’m not allowed to leave.

No sunbathing on the sand, no swimming in the sea, and definitely no wandering along the beach. A Maldives Health Protection Agency (HPA) official patrols the area with a clipboard to check. We had been due to fly home on Saturday, refreshed, restored and ready for a busy Christmas period during which we would be juggling work and family commitments…

Sounds like the tears of a trophy wife so far. Why are those beaches popular, anyway? The kind of beach where the surface is glass-flat, the water is nigh transparent and you can walk two hundred yards out to sea before your knees gets wet… why?

Don’t get me wrong, I love the beach. Snorkel, surf, kayak. Chatting with friends and beers around a campfire. Letting the dog off the leash, physically and metaphorically… good times. Just post a lookout to watch for that Morality Patrol, maybe light some diversionary fires. Not like that, you arsonists!

But why, why travel internationally to enjoy the exact same view as the most trope-ical computer desktop background ever?

Is it merely because the real-life supply of pristine, shadeless beach is limited, therefore worth many dollars?

Is it because those six-six-six-star resorts are like golf, with old fat billionaires pretending to do something while being serviced by legions of dusky slaves?

Is it because Mizz Abraham took up finger-painting landscapes along with her two-year-old? This reason would actually be respectable.

…After my mother tested positive for Covid in her pre-departure PCR (actually, my father was summoned and informed of her results; gender equality still has some way to go here), we were all put into compulsory quarantine ‘because we share a booking reference number’.

Isn’t that sweet! Big Brother is looking out for you! You didn’t really want to leave anyway! But then the consequences of your Socialist Vacay-cay kicked in.

I realise you probably hate me right now. You may even be wondering how you could fake a positive Covid test so that you can extend your holiday on an insurance company’s dime. The way omicron is spreading, chances are you wouldn’t even have to fake it.

No, I’m actually laughing. You took a vacation to an equatorial hellhole that you knew was so politically unstable that you took out an insurance policy against being able to escape it. For Christmas, no less.

One supposes that Afghanistan is no longer available for her trendy vacation needs. Ah, well. Gender equality still has some way to go there, too.

I’m not on my own. I am sharing this glorious four-star jail cell with my partner and 16-month-old twins.

It might just be a combination of low probabilities and confirmation bias, but I’ve recently noticed several accounts of lesbians adopting twin children. An IVF solution to Solomon’s Decision?

We’ve been given spacious accommodation because the usual quarantine rooms on this island aren’t big enough to fit two cots, as has my sister, who has children aged seven and four. But my parents, who are in their 70s, have it pretty rough. As only my mother has Covid (she’s triple-jabbed and asymptomatic)…

…they’ve been separated and given two dingy next-door cabins in the mosquito-ridden interior of the island.

I think the decor of their rooms dates from when the resort was first built in 1988 – no wonder the photos on its website are so soft-focus and filtered. Their quarantine countdown clock has just been reset after the HPA man spotted them eating dinner together; they were ticked off by resort management like a pair of naughty teenagers.

I’ve done time in Hawaii, never mind the circumstances, and let me say this: islanders frequently have a seething hatred for mainlanders. They’ll take you money, no problem, but if you don’t get on the plane home when you’re supposed to then… I am only one datapoint but this maltreatment doesn’t surprise me.

“My elderly parents are being held in solitary confinement in a tropical hellpit! And the decor is so, like, totally 1988!” More like 1984. I cannot hate Baby Boomers when they live in the world, with the family, that they created.

The fact that they are stuck there does take the shine off this extended stay. I also get a lump in my throat every time I remember that my in-laws will miss out on spending Christmas with their beloved grandchildren for the second year in a row.

You COULD sneak out. I mean, you’re right there, too. It would be a great Christmas story in later years.

In retrospect, the decision to take a holiday in the middle of a pandemic seems incredibly selfish given the risks. This is less of a vacation, more of a guilt trip.

Are you sure? It sounds like Socialist Heaven. Big Brother is carefully overseeing your safety, you get to enjoy a fancy vacation that Deplorables never do (because we have friends and do stuff instead) AND you get to cry about being a victim while ignoring your parents swapping COVID for jungle fever in a repurposed detention camp for golfers!

We get food delivered to the room three times a day by our waiters Ahmed and Adam.

Dusky native, check. Pool boy befriending lonely single mothers, check. Oh, that’s why women like to vacation at these resorts where there’s nothing to do but lie around. They have… pools.

My daughter has taken to blowing them clumsy kisses when they leave. The timings are erratic though – lunch can come as late as 3pm and dinner at 9pm – so now the minibar is full of kid-friendly leftovers from previous meals so that we can keep them in some semblance of a routine and not substitute meals with our entire supply of Ella’s Kitchen snacks. The YoYo buggies we rented for this trip have proved versatile, serving as high chairs, climbing frames and barricades.

What’s with the brand name dropping? Did marketing actually work on her?

If I may be permitted a complaint…

The fact that she didn’t intend “my parents are being held in solitary confinement by Maldives Gestapo through Christmas” as a complaint, is the moment I decided to make a post out of this.

Welcome to Socialist Heaven, Grandpa. It looks like women without husbands. Also, mosquitoes.

[My complaint] would be that there is very little clarity about the rules of our quarantine. Should we all be in isolation or just my parents?

Ahmed considered it but he would have become responsible for your infants, now without a supply of clean diapers.

Must we all do a full 14 days? Would a re-test make any difference? Surely the man with a clipboard could have come up with something more lenient for ‘contacts’? The HPA website is vague, and hotel management is giving us mixed messages, but they’re not taking any chances. A little online research reveals why: the first two Covid cases in the Maldives back in March 2020 were employees at Kuredu, who had caught the virus from an Italian tourist who tested positive on his return home. The resort was accused by Maldives police of a deliberate delay in reporting these cases to the HPA, although it was never charged due to a lack of sufficient evidence.

Remember I said that islanders often hate mainlanders? I never said that it was entirely unjustified.

Insurance admin aside, there’s no point getting stressed about a situation over which I have very little control. Quarantine is a necessity of our times, as are vaccines, masks and thorough hand-washing, and we all need to do our bit to contain the virus. I’m thrilled to be doing so from this tropical Alcatraz, although my niece and nephew are very worried that Father Christmas won’t know where to find them.

I’m not sure yet when I’ll be home, but for now I’m going nowhere. Keeping the babies contained and entertained is the main activity here in Quarantineland.

“I’m all about my babies. Will be home when my husband, er, State official okays it.”

My partner and I have one laptop between us, so we’re working in shifts – no fake Zoom background required.

“All my sacrifices were worth it!”

Barbie Abraham is having the vacation of her life: whoring attention by playing the victim card from a beachfront resort! And the only price is “I’m all about my babies” that she would have done regardless. It is fascinating, when looking over her account, to notice 1. how the government serves as a de facto husband over her, 2. how okay she is with lawless cruelty and 3. she has no comprehension of the concepts fun, vacation or Christmas.

This week’s Telegraph fashion content will be coming to you from the paper’s new Lhaviyani Atoll bureau. Everything you need to know about spending Christmas in a bikini coming right up…

That’s not a teaser. That’s how she ended the article. “Pay attention to me!”

They Finally Noticed That We Don’t Care If We Suffer For Our Beliefs

The solipsistic navel-gazing of Social Justice during the Plandemic has been breathtaking. A common manifestation of this has been their gleeful pointing out of when Christians refuse the vaxx then die of Covid complications. (We will charitably assume that those complications were not hospitals withholding treatment in order to maximize Federal payouts.)

Memo to Covidians: we don’t care if we die of Coof. For the Christian, death is a rite of passage, a rest from our sufferings, the moment we finally pass beyond the devil’s grasp and influence forever. We never refuse the vaxx because we think we’re immortal… that’s why YOU TAKE the vaxx, because you’re convinced (by political loyalties) that it’s a literal Fountain Of Youth. Even as you get booster shots, spread the new variant and die of old age anyway.

At last, here’s a liberal who dared to do the serious investigative journalism of noticing that we don’t care.

Don’t dance on the graves of anti-vaxxers who die. It won’t help get shots in arms.

By Steven Petrow for USA Today Opinion, 17 December 2021

Original title “Vaccine deniers dying of COVID is tragic, not justice. Be kind, grieve”. Not sure why Yahoo saw fit to change that for the repost; it’s a bad habit to rewrite a repost; but this is how I get around the USA paywall so I work with what I have.

In late November, Marcus Lamb, a prominent Christian broadcaster who had publicly scorned COVID-19 vaccinations, died of complications from the coronavirus.

As the president and founder of Daystar Television Network, his programming, reaching upwards of 2 billion people worldwide, frequently broadcast anti-vaccine conspiracy theories, notably that the vaccines were being used to steal freedoms away from Christians. Instead, Lamb urged viewers to use unapproved, untested or ineffective remedies, including prayer and ivermectin.

Then, a couple of weeks after the announcement that he had tested positive for COVID-19, he died from complications, leaving behind his wife and their three children.

Sad but not a tragedy. He had a stable family, a successful career and lived to age 64. Three grown children. Now he’s safe with Christ. Didn’t even linger at the end. We should all be so lucky.

Awful, enough – but there’s more. Piers Morgan, the controversial British broadcaster, tweeted, “Another needless tragedy. How many anti-vaxxers have to die from Covid before they realise they’re wrong?”

To which I respond, “how much longer must I go maskless until you drop dead? It’s been two years already.”

That was among the kinder responses. Elsewhere, the thugs and trolls of the internet had a field day after Lamb’s illness and death became public, excoriating him for his anti-vaccine views.

So much for the adage, “Do not speak ill of the dead.”

I wish I could say the ugly public response to Lamb’s death was an exception, or partisan. Hardly. A few years ago, after the death of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, an online commenter referred to him as “scum of the Supreme Court.” When Margaret Thatcher died in 2013, a digital marketing campaign promoting the song “Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead” pushed it up high on the British singles chart.

We appreciate you noticing how much we’re hated.

Not that conservatives have been any kinder. About the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, preacher Dave Daubenmire said, “If it wasn’t a tragedy that Hitler died, why is it a tragedy that she died? She was wicked and destructive.”

That’s different. Seriously. While we Christians have no hatred for nonbelievers, we have a very great hatred for the wicked, those who do true evil and gloat in it. Ginsburg hated America generally and the American people specifically, and used her power to destroy us as much as she possibly could. She clung so bitterly to power that people (including me) joked that her corpse had been robotized as a Muppet so she could continue harming America postmortem until the next Marxist in D.C. government could appoint a clone. It was funny because it could actually have been true, such was her desperation to hold onto power for the Feminist cause.

The death of the wicked is a legit cause for celebration.

I wouldn’t celebrate Bill Clinton’s death. The guy did evil but he’s out of power now, so I don’t have any wrath against him. (Also, he was married to Hillary. No mortal punishment can top that.) Similarly, politicians who do what I despise, yet on a limited or self-conscious scale because they’re human beings first and agents of Evil second, all we Christians really care about is that the damage stops. God will handle their final disposition.

But Ginsburg? She was a spiteful little witch whose evil lasted to the literal day she died, even to her own misery. Her dying wish was to see more babies murdered by their own mothers. Fuck her corpse.

Even by today’s low standards, though, the tide of vitriol against those who oppose vaccination is astounding. The pandemic has unleashed Reddit forums and websites devoted to exhorting the ignorance of the unvaccinated, with members ready to pile on once an anti-vaxxer dies from COVID-19. A common refrain is “you only have yourself to blame,” often expressed online as, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”

Their delight seems more than mere schadenfreude. Colin Wayne Leach, a Barnard College psychology professor, told The New York Times that this is “not just taking a little pleasure in somebody’s misfortune. In many ways, it’s seeing your enemies suffer because of what they believe. That is the sweetest justice.”

Or what some might call sweet revenge.

It IS more than schadenfreude. It’s politics. It’s a show of loyalty to the Narrative that “none are safe until all are safe”. See, It’s not enough to be innocent in the context of Social Justice. You must scream the Party line from the rooftops lest the Gestapo come for you, too.

Thus, in keeping with what I just said about Ginsberg, I don’t take the gloating personally. The people crowing over the Coof-deaths of anti-vaxxers are terrorized little rabbits trying to earn their daily approval. They’re no threat to me. They got problems that I can’t help with. Leave in peace, thank you.

Yes, it’s true that unvaccinated people make up the majority of deaths now during the pandemic…

Petrow can’t handle the truth.

…but what kind of people dance on the graves of the mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, who have died from this plague? And if the goal is to get more Americans vaccinated, what do we accomplish when we pillory Marcus Lamb and others like him? Or when we create bogus accolades like the Herman Cain award, named after the conservative politician and businessman who eschewed masks only to die from COVID-19.

Liberals, did you know that the human face is the primary method to communicate emotionally with your species? I ask because you’re surprised that online communications are so toxic. Let me clue you in to something I’ve learned as a blogger: when the only way you can communicate emotion is the written word, you need to overcompensate. “Fuck her corpse” is not a phrase I would use in daily conversation… because I don’t need to. The expression you’d see on my face accompanying the word “Ginsberg” would get the point across perfectly well.

You don’t see any drawback to masking-up 24/7 while around other people. Neither can you make the connection between “online-only relationships” and the coarsening of human language. The fewer ways you have to express emotion, the more that the ways you DO have will need to work overtime.

Please stop tearing down our statues and overwriting our culture, or I’ll talk smack about Yo’ Mama.

“Gloating over a COVID death is unethical,” Arthur Caplan, a professor of bioethics at New York University, told me in an interview. “It is cruel to survivors and does not in my view encourage vaccination by others.”

Agreed. Convincing us to get vaxxed is not the point. Being publicly seen hating the designated enemies of the State is.

We seem to have accepted the polarization that stains daily life in our country, exacerbated by the pandemic. Are we going to hold on to this ugliness for eternity?

The Times reported that Hal Bledsoe, whose son died from COVID-19 (after adding a frame to his social media page that read, “I don’t care if you’ve had your vaccine” and whose final post was an anti-vaccination video) was bombarded with messages “that (his son) should have died, that he deserved to die.”

Bledsoe spoke of the hurt these comments caused on top of his grief over the loss of his son.

I can’t imagine. Actually, I can.

It is good for Lefties to have these moments of introspection. They will become even rarer in the near future as our Totalitarian rulers cement their grasp.

I can’t imagine what it’s like to voluntarily live in a world in which your worth as a human being is measured exclusively by your momentary political utility. But I’ve been with Christ since childhood. Christ Jesus has no need to constantly remind people that He’s a legitimate authority.

The devil, though, he’s a bit insecure about being perceived as a legitimate authority. Usurpers be like that. Hence the constant loyalty tests.

I remember early on in the AIDS epidemic when gay men were dying like flies on the streets of San Francisco and New York, that Pat Buchanan, a conservative opinion columnist, wrote completely devoid of empathy, “The poor homosexuals … have declared war upon nature, and now nature is exacting an awful retribution.” I lost many friends during the worst of those years, too many of them abandoned by family, considered pariahs, and then gone.

Aaaand we’re back to wickedness. The homosexual DOES declare war upon human nature and GRIDS is a logical consequence of that denial of normality. Christ made us male and female; those who live in open rejection of this will receive in their bodies the due penalty for their perversions.

Notice that’s Christ talking, not his followers. I would prefer to see homosexuals cured rather than killed. But curing is illegal now.

Despite our differences, we – relatives, friends, colleagues, even strangers – I steadfastly continue to believe we are a family, the human family. Families fight; we disagree; we say awful things. But we must look after one another – and not only when it’s easy.

To take joy in others’ suffering and loss certainly doesn’t hurt the deceased: It diminishes and damages those who would inflict pain and mock deaths; it makes us into the kind of people we say we abhor. Let us grieve for every death, and let us work to get every one of us vaccinated.

The Cult of Nice cannot understand why the wolves and sheepdogs won’t put their differences aside. Are they not both canines? But one side is loyal to the Son of Man and the other is not.

Good news for Petrow, that means he isn’t wicked. He sees the results of the devil’s work and allows his conscience to prick him. But instead of searching out the Truth, he’s rather see everybody share… on the Winning Team’s side, which at the moment, is Satan Prince of Lies.

I’d rather die of Chinky Pox.

The wicked hate the righteous. The righteous hate the wicked. Because truth cannot coexist with lies.

“Interesting Things That People Can Do” Like Crying Rape After VR Groping

One could call this a bad product launch. Bonus: Meta-Zuck blamed the victim!

Meta opens up access to its VR social platform Horizon Worlds

h ttps://

By Alex Heath, 9 December 2021

More than two years and a company rebrand later, Meta is finally opening up access to its VR social platform Horizon Worlds. Starting Thursday, people in the US and Canada who are 18 and up will be able to access the free Quest app without an invite.

Horizon Worlds is Meta’s first attempt at releasing something that resembles CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s vision of the metaverse. It’s an expansive, multiplayer platform that meshes Roblox and the OASIS VR world from Ready Player One. Originally just called Horizon, it requires a Facebook account and lets you hang out with up to 20 people at a time in a virtual space.

First announced in September 2019 as a private beta, Horizon Worlds has evolved from primarily being a Minecraft-like environment for building games to more of a social platform. Its thousands of beta testers have held regular comedy shows, movie nights, and meditation sessions. They’ve also built elaborate objects like a replica of the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters. “Now we can open up and say we have interesting things that people can do,” Vivek Sharma, Meta’s VP of Horizon, tells me.

YAY! Let’s do interesting things!

Safety is a big concern for a VR environment like Horizon Worlds, where you can easily interact with someone you don’t know.

That didn’t take long. Can we do interesting things or not?

Earlier this month, a beta tester posted in the official Horizon group on Facebook about how her avatar was groped by a stranger. “Sexual harassment is no joke on the regular internet, but being in VR adds another layer that makes the event more intense,” she wrote. “Not only was I groped last night, but there were other people there who supported this behavior which made me feel isolated in the Plaza.”


Sharma calls the incident “absolutely unfortunate” and says that after Meta reviewed the incident, the company determined that the beta tester didn’t utilize the safety features built into Horizon Worlds, including the ability to block someone from interacting with you. (When you’re in Horizon, a rolling buffer of what you see is saved locally on your Oculus headset and then sent to Meta for human review if an incident is reported.) “That’s good feedback still for us because I want to make [the blocking feature] trivially easy and findable,” he says.

Who could have guessed that “enable hugs” would be classified as a safety toggle?


26 Nov. Incident happened

1 Dec. Barbie discovered she’d been rayyyped and reported the incident to her Facebook account. Does that count as official notification to Facebook? Either way, official notice was taken and Sharma blamed her for not enabling safety features.

9 Dec. Sharma launches “Horizon Worlds” out of Beta.

Thus proving that male feminist fearless defenders of empowered, helpless wymyn will still shove her under a bus when politically convenient.

Another unique aspect of Horizon Worlds is the human guides that exist to greet new users as they teleport from the Plaza to different worlds. These guides are power users that Meta employees train to know best practices for navigating Horizon and following its behavior rules. Sharma calls it “one of those areas where we’re doing unscalable things to keep the environment to be a place that’s healthy for communities.”

The metaverse has a groping problem already

A woman was sexually harassed on Meta’s VR social media platform. She’s not the first—and won’t be the last.

h ttps://

By Tanya Basu, 16 December 2021

Nobody could have seen this coming, especially after Zuckerberg bragged that it would be the dating lounge of the future.

Last week, Meta (the umbrella company formerly known as Facebook) opened up access to its virtual-reality social media platform, Horizon Worlds. Early descriptions of the platform make it seem fun and wholesome, drawing comparisons to Minecraft. In Horizon Worlds, up to 20 avatars can get together at a time to explore, hang out, and build within the virtual space.

But not everything has been warm and fuzzy. According to Meta, on November 26, a beta tester reported something deeply troubling: she had been groped by a stranger on Horizon Worlds. On December 1, Meta revealed that she’d posted her experience in the Horizon Worlds beta testing group on Facebook.

“Let’s play with strangers!”

“Help, I’ve been groped by a stranger!”

Xenophilia or xenophobia, Barbie. Pick one already!

Meta’s internal review of the incident found that the beta tester should have used a tool called “Safe Zone” that’s part of a suite of safety features built into Horizon Worlds. Safe Zone is a protective bubble users can activate when feeling threatened. Within it, no one can touch them, talk to them, or interact in any way until they signal that they would like the Safe Zone lifted.

Vivek Sharma, the vice president of Horizon, called the groping incident “absolutely unfortunate,” telling The Verge, “That’s good feedback still for us because I want to make [the blocking feature] trivially easy and findable.”

Pick! One! Already!

It’s not the first time a user has been groped in VR—nor, unfortunately, will it be the last. But the incident shows that until companies work out how to protect participants, the metaverse can never be a safe place.

Remember, only Big Brother can keep you safe! Or not:

When Aaron Stanton heard about the incident at Meta, he was transported to October 2016. That was when a gamer, Jordan Belamire, penned an open letter on Medium describing being groped in Quivr, a game Stanton co-designed in which players, equipped with bow and arrows, shoot zombies.

In the letter, Belamire described entering a multiplayer mode, where all characters were exactly the same save for their voices. “In between a wave of zombies and demons to shoot down, I was hanging out next to BigBro442, waiting for our next attack. Suddenly, BigBro442’s disembodied helmet faced me dead-on. His floating hand approached my body, and he started to virtually rub my chest. ‘Stop!’ I cried … This goaded him on, and even when I turned away from him, he chased me around, making grabbing and pinching motions near my chest. Emboldened, he even shoved his hand toward my virtual crotch and began rubbing.

Big Brother? Is that you?

“There I was, being virtually groped in a snowy fortress with my brother-in-law and husband watching.”

Was her BIL laughing at the time? Stay strong, Red Sonja!

Stanton and his cofounder, Jonathan Schenker, immediately responded with an apology and an in-game fix. Avatars would be able to stretch their arms into a V gesture, which would automatically push any offenders away.

*tune of ‘You can’t be my lover if you won’t be my friend’*

You can’t be a gamer… if you won’t play my game… dumb jokes are not forever… but safe space is always lame…

Stanton, who today leads the VR Institute for Health and Exercise, says Quivr didn’t track data about that feature, “nor do I think it was used much.” But Stanton thinks about Belamire often and wonders if he could have done more in 2016 to prevent the incident that occurred in Horizon Worlds a few weeks ago. “There’s so much more to be done here,” he says. “No one should ever have to flee from a VR experience to escape feeling powerless.”

No programmer should ever have to patch his work so women can shut him out of it.

A recent review of the events around Belamire’s experience published in the journal for the Digital Games Research Association found that “many online responses to this incident were dismissive of Belamire’s experience and, at times, abusive and misogynistic … readers from all perspectives grappled with understanding this act given the virtual and playful context it occurred in.” Belamire faded from view, and I was unable to find her online.

The demand for VR rape-rape far exceeds the supply.

A constant topic of debate on message boards after Belamire’s Medium article was whether or not what she had experienced was actually groping if her body wasn’t physically touched.

“I think people should keep in mind that sexual harassment has never had to be a physical thing,” says Jesse Fox, an associate professor at Ohio State University who researches the social implications of virtual reality. “It can be verbal, and yes, it can be a virtual experience as well.

Katherine Cross, who researches online harassment at the University of Washington, says that when virtual reality is immersive and real, toxic behavior that occurs in that environment is real as well. “At the end of the day, the nature of virtual-reality spaces is such that it is designed to trick the user into thinking they are physically in a certain space, that their every bodily action is occurring in a 3D environment,” she says. “It’s part of the reason why emotional reactions can be stronger in that space, and why VR triggers the same internal nervous system and psychological responses.”

Translation: don’t read a headline about San Francisco while using Meta or you’ll shit on the floor.

That was true in the case of the woman who was groped on Horizon Worlds. According to The Verge, her post read: “Sexual harassment is no joke on the regular internet, but being in VR adds another layer that makes the event more intense. Not only was I groped last night, but there were other people there who supported this behavior which made me feel isolated in the Plaza [the virtual environment’s central gathering space].”

Everybody was laughing at her!

The real problem, perhaps, has to do with the perception that when you play a game or participate in a virtual world, there’s what Stanton describes as a “contract between developer and player.” “As a player, I’m agreeing to being able to do what I want in the developer’s world according to their rules,” he says. “But as soon as that contract is broken and I’m not feeling comfortable anymore, the obligation of the company is to return the player to wherever they want to be and back to being comfortable.”

The real problem is that social media is a world that can only be created and maintained by sexually unattractive/clumsy nerds. Women can’t stand their existence while simultaneously needing their services.

The question is: Whose responsibility is it to make sure users are comfortable? Meta, for example, says it gives users access to tools to keep themselves safe, effectively shifting the onus onto them.

“We want everyone in Horizon Worlds to have a positive experience with safety tools that are easy to find—and it’s never a user’s fault if they don’t use all the features we offer,” Meta spokesperson Kristina Milian said. “We will continue to improve our UI and to better understand how people use our tools so that users are able to report things easily and reliably. Our goal is to make Horizon Worlds safe, and we are committed to doing that work.”

Milian said that users must undergo an onboarding process prior to joining Horizon Worlds that teaches them how to launch Safe Zone. She also said regular reminders are loaded into screens and posters within Horizon Worlds.

Translation, nobody is allowed to join Meta without going through sexual harassment training. That’s the solution they hit on for combining nerds and women in the same buildings in Meatspace. Similarly, posting huge panic buttons everywhere for women who get unwanted attention has proven to be an effective business model for the Planet Fatness chain of gyms. (Their mottos are “No lunks” and “Pizza Monday”.)

But the fact that the Meta groping victim either did not think to use Safe Zone or could not access it is precisely the problem, says Cross. “The structural question is the big issue for me,” she says. “Generally speaking, when companies address online abuse, their solution is to outsource it to the user and say, ‘Here, we give you the power to take care of yourselves.’”

And that is unfair and doesn’t work. Safety should be easy and accessible, and there are lots of ideas for making this possible. To Stanton, all it would take is some sort of universal signal in virtual reality—perhaps Quivr’s V gesture—that could relay to moderators that something was amiss.

Barbie wants a virtual reality in which she is escorted by real-life bodyguards who ruin the lives of anybody who 1. shows interest in her and 2. fails to meet her standards.

Zuckerberg might be inadvertently saving the world by locking these wimminz inside their own minds forever.

Fox wonders if an automatic personal distance unless two people mutually agreed to be closer would help.

Even Pokemon avatars must secure her consent! Wait, how would anybody know she actually is female in Meta?

And Cross believes it would be useful for training sessions to explicitly lay out norms mirroring those that prevail in ordinary life: “In the real world, you wouldn’t randomly grope someone, and you should carry that over to the virtual world.”

Until we figure out whose job it is to protect users, one major step toward a safer virtual world is disciplining aggressors, who often go scot-free and remain eligible to participate online even after their behavior becomes known. “We need deterrents,” Fox says. That means making sure bad actors are found and suspended or banned. (Milian said Meta “[doesn’t] share specifics about individual cases” when asked about what happened to the alleged groper.)

I thought the point of VR was to escape reality? Particularly the unpleasant parts of it like false rape accusations destroying peoples’ lives?

Stanton regrets not pushing more for industry-wide adoption of the power gesture and failing to talk more about Belamire’s groping incident. “It was a lost opportunity,” he says. “We could have avoided that incident at Meta.”

The worst way to handle an online media launch is publicly regretting the failure to destroy the life of the only person who got accused of rape during the beta test. “Now it’s your turn!”

If anything is clear, it’s this: There is no body that’s plainly responsible for the rights and safety of those who participate anywhere online, let alone in virtual worlds. Until something changes, the metaverse will remain a dangerous, problematic space.

Cornell University goes to ‘alert level red’ and shuts down its campus over spike in coronavirus

h ttps://

By Carlos Garcia, 14 December 2021

Cornell University shut down its campus in Ithaca, New York, over a spike in coronavirus cases among students, which included some Omicron variant infections in fully vaccinated students.

The death toll is catastrophic!

Cornell President Martha Pollack announced the action in a statement Tuesday.

While faculty and staff case numbers currently remain low, just last evening our COVID-19 testing lab team identified evidence of the highly contagious Omicron variant in a significant number of Monday’s positive student samples. As a result, and out of an abundance of caution, the university is moving to Alert Level Red,” said Pollack in her statement.

School officials reported that they had documented about 903 cases of coronavirus in students and that many of them appeared to be due to the Omicron variant.

Pollack said that the finding of Omicron cases was still preliminary but that the university was moving forward as if it were confirmed. She also noted that it appeared to have a high level of transmissibility even if it caused “generally milder cases.”

“We think we might have found something, a minor threat causing mild discomfort, so we’re ending all human civilization until further notice. Enjoy your months-long Christmas vacation! Oops, I mean Kwanzaa.”

Just out of morbid curiosity… is anybody even sick?

Pollack said that no students had yet developed serious illness after catching coronavirus.

Nope. Nobody is sick. Alec Baldwin has STILL killed more people that SARS-Cov-2-Omicron. Regardless of that particular science,

She said that the university would host its final exams online and cancel university activities and university-sponsored events. Libraries will be closed, athletic competitions will be canceled, and gyms will be closed as well. The announcement also outlined strengthened social distancing guidelines for the students.

Could she possibly virtue-signal harder?

Cornell sophomore Vlad Asriev said in an interview with WSYR-TV that the university probably should have acted much sooner to curb the spread of the pandemic among the students.

Sigh, I must stop asking questions like that.

President of California medical board tweets ‘terrifying’ encounter with anti-vaccine group

Says four men confronted her in a dark parking garage

h ttps://

By Shiv Sudhakar, 11 December 2021

The Walnut Creek Police Department, located in California’s Bay Area, is investigating a recent incident involving several members of an anti-vaccine group who “followed and confronted” the president of the California medical board Kristina D. Lawson, according to the New York Times.

“On Monday, I was followed and confronted by a group that peddles medical disinformation, promotes fake COVID-19 treatments, and is under investigation by Congress for stealing millions of dollars from consumers. It was a terrifying experience,” Lawson wrote on Twitter.

How did she know who they were? When conservative authorities get confronted, it’s usually by faceless ninja wannabes with spiked gloves and buckets of acid. BLM and Pantifa don’t wear name tags.

They identified themselves as being part of America’s Frontline Doctors, wearing their group’s logos on their jackets with microphones, telling law enforcement they only wanted to interview her for an upcoming video they were producing, but Lawson emphatically said the group never contacted her an interview.

“We’re the people you’ve been slandering [show ID] and you haven’t been returning our calls!”


Kristina Lawson, or discount Gretchen Whitmer? Discuss.

The group has propagated misleading claims of the COVID-19 virus, including hydroxychloroquine was an effective treatment and masks did not decrease the spread of the virus, according to the Times.

While it’s interesting that nobody ever realized that a virus can be stopped by taping an old sock over your air holes until Globohomo came along, what’s REALLY interesting is that doing so only stops one kind of virus.

Lawson first noticed someone flying a drove over her home and a suspicious rental SUV parked outside her home this past Monday morning, but “that evening, when I left the office building and entered the parking garage four men jumped out of the [same] SUV with cameras and recording equipment and confronted me as I tried to get into my car to drive home,” Lawson recalled.

“Instead, they ambushed me in a dark parking garage when they suspected I would be alone,” she said.

And she lived to tell the tale! The worm turns when a liberal gets targeted by ambush journalism! How did she not see this coming? She’s one of the highest-level people involved in ruining millions of innocent lives… and she’s surprised when they showed up in person after she ignored them online?

Does she think the unvaccinated are not real people? That we don’t really exist? That’s the point of the mandates, you know. Once the Muscovite rabbit warrens have been purged of dissidents, those newfangled extermination orders won’t affect anybody that Normie knows or will ever even meet. Our suffering will be nothing but an abstract concept to the ivory tower types.

Unless we drive by during the brief moments they rush between secured locations.

“As a mother, I felt deeply violated and scared for my kids in our own home — and I feared for my own personal safety as a woman being surrounded by strange men in a dark parking garage.”

Playing the victim card! “They tried to rayyyype me! and criticize me for destroying their jobs and lives on blatantly false medical pretexts.” Don’t worry, Krusty Lawson, purebloods aren’t the Chicongo type. But you’d have more respect for us if we were.

Lt. Holley Connors, a Walnut Creek Police Department spokeswoman, confirmed, “At this time, there is no evidence of a crime, but the Walnut Creek Police Department will continue to follow up on the incident.”

Credit to Krusty, she did at least bother to file a police report in addition to accusing them of stalking, ambush, rayyype and scaring a mom on social media.

Cowboy Be Bopped By Wardrobe Malfunction

Most of my readers are probably not into Japanime enough to appreciate the massive cultural importance of Cowboy Bebop. That’s okay. What you need to know is 1. it’s a very popular show, 2. Netflix made a live-action adaptation that died on arrival and 3. the eye candy was intentionally deleted by an intersectional feminist in order to disappoint the males watching the show.

‘Cowboy Bebop’ Canceled by Netflix After One Season

h ttps://

By James Hibberd & Borys Kit, 9 December 2021

That was fast: Netflix has canceled its ambitious, widely hyped and, ultimately, widely disappointing anime adaptation Cowboy Bebop, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The move comes less than three weeks after the show’s Nov. 19 debut on the streaming service.

The space Western had a rough reception. The 10-episode series garnered only a 46 percent positive critics rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Fans seemed to agree, giving the show a 56 percent positive audience score on the site. According to Netflix’s Top 10 site, the series has racked up almost 74 million viewing hours worldwide since its debut — so it got plenty of sampling out of the gate — but it plummeted 59 percent for the week of Nov. 29 to Dec. 5.

The Cowboy Bebop series starred John Cho, Mustafa Shakir and Daniella Pineda as three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. From the show’s description: “They form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.”

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Angie Han wrote that Cowboy Bebop was “faithful to a fault” with “leaden pacing” and “the sharp [anime] visuals [were] reduced to muddy CG, the playful humor translated as phony laughter, the lived-in grittiness replaced with shoddy-looking sets” and that the remake “seems to have no point at all.”

Sounds more like “feminist to a fault”. Here comes the smoking sixgun!

Interview: Cowboy Bebop Costume Designer Jane Holland

h ttps://

By Jacki Jing, 17 November 2021

A large part of what makes the Cowboy Bebop anime such an enduring classic is its distinctive aesthetic style, of which costume design is no doubt a significant component. If Netflix’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the anime were to recapture the charm of its predecessor, then what the characters wear is something they cannot afford to mishandle. However, costumes do not work the same way in real life as they may look in animated form, so how does the adaptation account for that while still staying true to the characters’ core personalities? Anime News Network reached out to costume designer Jane Holland to find out.

How did you get brought on to work on Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the legendary anime Cowboy Bebop?

I live in New Zealand and am part of the film community here who work on international projects.

She ducked the question. In fact, Kiwi quarantines being what they are, her answer raises even more questions. Why was Jane Holland special enough to justify the effort of reaching overseas, for what every breathing female has at least some competency in… deciding what outfit to wear?

Whoa! Here’s one vote for “demonic possession”. Keeping the production values inside the ‘family’!

Did you know about the anime before you were hired or did you have to do some deeper research? Break down your whole process – what did you immediately do after getting hired? What research did you do?

I didn’t know about the anime.

Bad sign.

I read the script and really liked the energy and style, and then watched the anime. Immediately, I was hooked in by the aesthetic, but the thing I loved was the quirk and contrast – the surreal slow-motion moments of glass or a rose falling in the middle of some crazy action scene against that stunning soundtrack. To me, the storytelling style is surprising and unexpected and I found the anime seriously cool.

Immediately after getting hired, I consulted the youth in my world who watch anime! And they issued a warning, ‘Māmā Holland, don’t f*** it up’. I took them seriously. When the trailer came out, the first thing I did was to check in to see if I did ok.

And how badly did Mama Holland f*** it up?

There was a lot of scrutiny over Faye’s costume (which was pretty revealing in the anime) – how did you approach Faye’s outfit, and how did you reach your decision/design? How did you react to the big online reaction to Faye’s outfit on the Netflix show? Is there anything you want to say to fans about it?

Faye Valentine is Cowboy Bebop’s eye-candy protagonist. This is what we’re talking about:

One guess which is the original and which is the “Jane Holland adaptation”.

It wasn’t so much about not being revealing (Her shorts are, in fact, very short. Her top has a zip which sits pretty low – the red outfit in the trailer is hardly demure), it was about not being gratuitous. I was looking for the 2021 version of Faye for a signature costume that worked for who she is and what she needs to do. She has a leather jacket because it’s a functional garment that will stand the rigours of her job – a bounty hunter. She wears combat boots for the same reason with a thigh high extension that embraces the design lines of the anime.


I wanted Daniella to be able to bring her Faye without me inflicting a costume that would lock her into one facet of the character and inhibit her practically – so, with the anime as a springboard, and drilling down into character, I went for a street cool and sassy interpretation of the design lines of the anime. The design is… well… It’s designed by a woman, made by predominantly women for a woman to wear and it functions for an action show.

Designed by a feminist, for function without any form that a man could appreciate.

To the fans I would say … you know as well as I do, there’s way more to Faye than a skimpy costume. For me, and I hope for you too, the spirit of Faye Valentine is alive and well in the series.

The spirit of Faye Valentine didn’t last three weeks in her Ghostbusters Reboot wardrobe. There are other fan complaints for why the series died so quickly… but intentionally erasing the eye candy is surely a big part of it.

How did you get into costume design and what have been the ups and downs of this career?

I studied English and Drama alongside a science degree at university and found my way to a film set through drama.

Epic STEM fail!

…So many highlights and I’m always learning. I just worked with my partner and kids on a local low-budget Maori supernatural drama – magic.

“My partner”? Holland is either lesbian or butch. Either way, I wasn’t far off about demonic possession.

The ‘downs’… I guess I carry frustration about the recognition of the Costume Department. We are a highly trained and qualified department and represent the lived-in diversity of what many productions these days aspire to be on screen. There is still work to do behind the scenes in terms of pay parity, value, and visibility. As a woman I am generally a minority, and sometimes the only one at the decision-making table during production. I always thought the film industry was progressive because of the stories we tell and collaborative way of working, but when you start to agitate for change in pay, and highlight the difficulty marginalised people have speaking up, you realise that it’s no different to any other power structure. Finally things are starting to shift, but we’re not there yet.

Holy Tolerance In Diversity, Batman! She’s a ball-busting battleaxe! And Cowboy Bebop is her latest victim.

Lest you think this wardrobe malfunction was, in any way, accidental:

Netflix’s Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Faye Costume Change Is A Good Thing

h ttps://

Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop has opened up about which parts of the arrangement are getting present day updates, and Faye’s famous outfit is set to change.

Netflix is changing a famous part of Cowboy Bebop for their real life arrangement: Faye’s outfit. Cattle rustler Bebop is one of the most well known and cherished anime ever…

…yet the news that a cutting edge arrangement is being created for Netflix left numerous fans with stop about whether the first can be improved and what notable subtleties might be changed. On account of Faye’s noteworthy ensemble, be that as it may, the change is something to be thankful for.

“We’re changing it and you’ll like it!” Likely not.

Faye Valentine is one of the most adored characters on the arrangement. She’s an abundance tracker who lost her feeling of self after she’s hit with amnesia when pulled out of cryo-rest. Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) will play Faye in the arrangement, however she won’t look how fans recall the character. Faye’s scanty look comprising of shorts, red coat, and thigh-high stockings is unquestionably somewhat unbalanced, in actuality. It’s the sort of style that is cliché of numerous anime and intended to be attractive to acquire crowds, however this new arrangement works in an alternate medium.

No crowds were attracted by her new outfit. This was the intended, stated purpose of the wardrobe change.

This change is really advantageous for the character, since Faye is in no way, shape or form a sexual character — in spite of how sexualized her outfit is.

In any case, ensembles and hairdos are a component of adjustments that watchers hope to be changed. There are substantially more significant subtleties to be worried about, and as long as this adaptation of Faye sounds valid, it’s truly not significant how she dresses. Everything considers, it seems as though it will be a similar Cowboy Bebop toward the day’s end.

I’ve had infections that lasted longer than this series. It deserved to die because it hated its core audience of young men.

Caldor Fire Arrest Shenanigans

The Caldor Fire was one of California’s recent big fires. It threatened the famous resort community of Lake Tahoe and among other damages, burned the Kirkwood ski resort where I personally used to go cross-country skiing. I was naturally interested when two men were arrested for arson. It’s no secret that waves of college-trained arsonists have been lighting my state ablaze.

But the case is looking… odd.

Father and son are arrested on suspicion of starting devastating Caldor wildfire that destroyed homes forcing thousands to flee Lake Tahoe and scorching 346sq-miles of land

h ttps://

By Rachel Bunyan, 8 December 2021

A father and son were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of starting the devastating Caldor wildfire that destroyed many homes and forced tens of thousands of people to flee Lake Tahoe communities earlier this year, authorities said.

The guy had a father in his life? Could still be a Marxist vandal but not common.

David Scott Smith, 66, and his son, Travis Shane Smith, 32, are accused of reckless arson in a warrant issued before formal charges are filed, the El Dorado County District Attorney’s office said.

Now I’m smelling a Narrative for sure. Per Breitbart, it was a Ramey warrant, which is issued by a judge upon probable cause provided by a police officer with no involvement from a grand jury or district attorney. The typical use of such a warrant is for weekend/holiday arrests when the DA’s office is closed.

But this arrest happened on a Wednesday? That means somebody did an end run around the El Dorado County District Attorney’s office.

The district attorney’s office said [on Twitter] the case was developed with the U.S. Forest Service, California´s firefighting agency and the California Department of Justice, with help from the Sacramento County District Attorney´s crime lab.

Typically, a DA will hog the credit for any high-profile arrest such as large-scale arson. But here, the first thing the DA said… even before charges… is all the other agencies who’ve been involved with the case.


Mark Reichel, the attorney for both men, said they were arrested Wednesday afternoon and that reckless arson means starting a blaze by accident but ‘to such a degree that it was considered reckless.’

So, not arson at all. While criminal charges for involuntary crimes can be appropriate… a recent post discussed both involuntary manslaughter and Alec Baldwin… these two men are accused of accidentally starting a fire then trying to put it out, and were arrested without the typical process of law. Not to say ‘without the due process of law’.

Reichel said he did not know details of the accusation, such as how authorities allege the fire was set.

He said Travis Smith is an electrician and was with his father near where the fire started. The son called 911 to report seeing flames, Reichel said.

The son made several 911 calls because the calls kept dropping in the rugged area, and both men also warned campers about the fire, Reichel said.

That’ll be a difficult criminal case to prosecute. A civil case could wreck them because accidents can still impute financial liabilities… but there’s no criminal intent here, if they alerted authorities and neighbors right away.

‘Neither one has ever been in trouble with the law in their life. They´re very law-abiding people,’ he said.

The Smiths are not the Pantifa I was looking for.

The pair have a scheduled court appearance on Friday, Reichel said.

Ramey warrants must have formal charges applied within 48 hours of the arrest.

‘There has been no evidence submitted into a court subject to my cross-examination … that proves any of the prosecution´s evidence yet. So I urge everyone to wait and hear what really happened before they form any opinions,’ Reichel added.

Fair enough. *A few days pass*

Father, son plead not guilty to starting Caldor Fire

h ttps://

By AP, 10 December 2021

PLACERVILLE — A father and son charged with starting a massive California wildfire that destroyed many homes and forced tens of thousands of people to flee Lake Tahoe communities earlier this year pleaded not guilty in court Friday.

The El Dorado County prosecutor’s office charged David Scott Smith, 66, and Travis Shane Smith, 32, with reckless arson. The office also charged the son with illegal conversion or manufacture of a machine gun and both men of illegal possession of a firearm silencer.

I was not expecting to see firearm charges.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to all charges, said Emily Idleman, assistant to the chief of investigations in the district attorney’s office.

The men were arrested Wednesday and remain in El Dorado County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail each. A bail reduction hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Had they been accused of murder, bail would have been zero. /sarc

The criminal complaints do not specify how the machine gun and silencer tie into the Caldor Fire and the DA’s office has not offered an explanation.

The complaints said both men illegally possessed a firearm silencer between Aug. 11 and Sept. 23 and that Travis Smith converted or manufactured a machine gun between Aug. 9 and Aug. 14.

The Caldor Fire’s official start date is August 14. The implication would be that they were trying out a silenced, homemade firearm that somehow triggered the fire.

Note that this being California, “machine gun” can mean anything from an A-10’s GAU-8 to a bolt-action with a bump stock. There’s no reason to put a silencer on something fully automatic… you just can’t silence that much explosives. Silencers don’t actually make things silent at the best of times.

So, we’re probably talking about an AR with a homemade silencer. That could get hot enough to spark a fire but one notices that 1. the DA office isn’t actually saying that and 2. they’re accused of having a silencer for a month after it presumably caught fire and burned down half a forest.

It could be true the arrest is legit but I have doubts.

Christian Post Editor Goes Chickenhawk For Biden

Politics makes strange bedfellows. The Christian Post’s executive editor, Richard Land, has an academic background. No connection to the military-industrial complex or Deep State other than a stint at Oxford. That didn’t stop Land from calling for America-sponsored war in Ukraine so hard that he forgot to explain how international arms dealing is what Jesus would do.

The Ukraine: A litmus test for Western civilization

h ttps://

Opinion by Richard D. Land, CP Executive Editor, 10 December 2021

If there’s a case to be made that Potato Joe is acting morally by involving USA in WW3 for the exclusive benefit of his foreign-born cronies on the far side of the planet from anything that might be considered “American national security” then I’d love to hear it.

Once again, the specter of armed conflict and military aggression is casting its deadly and ominous shadow over Europe. Vladimir Putin, the Russian oligarch and old KGB colonel who has said that the “greatest geopolitical tragedy of the century” was the collapse of the “evil empire” of the old Soviet Union, is threatening to invade the sovereign country of Ukraine.

With no evidence but a single quote and the guy’s resume, Dick accuses Putin of being the real villain. Granted that a KGB background means Putin doesn’t run a puppy-rescue charity in his spare time, it’s no proof that he starts wars for fun.

Everyone needs to understand that Putin cannot fulfill his life’s ambition to rebuild the old Soviet Union under the banner of Russia without putting Ukraine once again under Russian control and rule.

Multiple citations needed, as wikipedia would put it.

For example, the old Soviet Union had a population of just over 293 million people when it ceased to exist as a political entity in 1991. Today, Russia has a population of 146 million people. Ukraine has a population of 41.5 million people. If you combine the two countries’ populations, you have 187 million people or approximately 65% of the population of the former Soviet Union.

Gaining population is the dumbest possible reason to risk a global war. What, no mention of Ukrainian oil industry as a possible Putin motive? What a curious omission.

Putin has already forcibly put Crimea and parts of eastern Ukraine back under Russian control and now he is casting a covetous eye on the rest of Ukraine and all its tremendous natural resources.

They tell you what their enemies did… but they never tell you why their enemies did it. And again, Land refuses to mention oil. Just a vague reference to “natural resources”.

Why would Putin’s Russia threaten to invade Ukraine now and amass troops along the border? Quite simply, the profound weakness and odd obtuseness of the Biden administration is more temptation than the Putins of the world can withstand.

HAHAHA! One accusation that NOBODY has made of the Bidenreich is their reluctance to break American eggs for an omelet. The first thing Biden did in office was a strong-armed sabotage of the American energy infrastructure.

Hey, isn’t the Ukraine strategically important for its energy infrastructure?

When the bad actors in the world are confronted with the opportunity to further long-held territorial ambitions and their national “interests” and the only thing standing in their way is the bluster and empty talk of the Biden foreign policy team, they are almost certain to act.

Dick is projecting more fantasy that Netflix. It’s Biden that is desperate for war. No, scratch that. Biden’s handlers want to expend the American Empire that they’re losing control of such that 1. they get a final use out of it and 2. America is reduced to such rubble that whoever’s next in control won’t get a turn. Biden himself wants rice pudding instead of chocolate because his diaper feels extra-chunky today.

And Richie Land is playing along! That’s NOT what Jesus would do… risk His people’s survival for a third party’s gain in a distant war.

The Russians, the Chinese, the North Koreans, and the Iranians, among other bad actors, are taking notes and preparing aggressions of their own. The greatest danger to world peace for the vast majority of the world’s population is American weakness or lack of resolve to resist aggression by the bad actors and bullies of the world.

Fuck. You. Dick.

Humanity’s only hope for world peace is the American military’s continued, aggressive and unchallenged domination of every single country on the planet? Because bullies are bad? America is today’s worst offender of national sovereignty!

No more White Savior. We should have listened to George Washington and stayed forever out of Europe, then listened to Ben Franklin and forever banned the little hats from North America.

As Putin amassed troops on the Ukraine border, President Biden ruled out the use of military force and said that NATO troops on the ground in Ukraine “is not on the table.” Instead, Biden told Putin that Russia would face “economic consequences like none he’s ever seen” if he invaded Ukraine.

I am not advocating that American military personnel be involved in combat with Russians in Ukraine, but how foolish (and may I say, “stupid!”) to announce that in advance and remove any hesitancy on Putin’s part.

“We should have told Russia that we’re willing to fight a total war to get Ukraine into NATO with no intention of making good on that bluff.” May I say, “STUPID!”

But good news, Dick, Potato Joe is a shameless liar. When Diaper Deuce says “deploying NATO troops is not on the table”, it means we already have Special Forces downrange and building landing zones. Even a casual perusal of today’s military headlines indicates that war is in the air.

The situation is complicated by the fact that in 2008, NATO entered into an arrangement with Ukraine as a “partner,” but not a member of NATO (Ukraine has sent soldiers to fight on several NATO missions such as Iraq and Afghanistan.)

Mr. Putin views Ukraine as “an inalienable part of Russia,” an opinion not shared by a majority of Ukrainians themselves. NATO (The North Atlantic Treaty Organization) was founded in 1949 to resist Soviet aggression in Europe or, as was infamously explained by a British general, “to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down!”).

That was NATO Secretary-General Lord Ismay explaining that one of NATO’s duties was to prevent America from returning to an isolationist political worldview post-WW2. Land quoted an imperialist refusing to allow USA to NOT be imperialist, in the middle of a call for war against imperialists because imperialism is naughty.

Christ doesn’t do hypocrisy.

Another important factor to consider in the Ukrainian situation is the nuclear equation. In 1991, when the Soviet Union ceased to exist, the newly independent Ukraine (inheriting part of Moscow’s nuclear arsenal) was for one brief moment the world’s third-leading nuclear power. Ukraine had control of over 1,800 nuclear weapons, more than any nation except the U.S. and Russia.

The Clinton administration, rightly concerned about nuclear proliferation and about these weapons falling into the hands of terrorists, made it a high priority to urge Ukraine to give up its nuclear weapons for economic and security guarantees. Ukraine did so in return for the “Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances” in which Ukraine gave up its nukes and signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and Russia, Britain and the U.S. pledged to protect Ukraine’s “territorial integrity.”

This pledge has proven to be the emptiest of promises as the Russian aggression in Crimea and its threat to seize further Ukrainian territory illustrates vividly.

This is not at all the situation in Ukraine. Mr. Land never mentions Biden bribes, oil pipelines or anything that makes the Ukraine situation existential to the Globalists, then he rants “Russia wants to invade in order to gain 40 million new citizens that would rather die than be Russian!” If Land is not actively deceiving people into supporting World War Ukraine then he’s a special brand of willfully ignorant. I will link to a better description of Russia’s interest in the region below.

What should America and her fellow Western European allies (Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, etc.) do? They should commence immediately to arm the frontline states from the Baltic to the Black Sea to make it very painful and costly for the Russians to use military force.

We should not send American or Western European troops, but sophisticated weaponry (stinger missiles, the most advanced anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons) beginning first with the Ukrainians and then the other frontline states.

We should do our best to make Ukraine the military equivalent of an angry porcupine, making the cost in Russian lives too expensive for Putin to justify it to his people.

That’s how banksters and chickenhawks make war, not statesmen. “We’ll just buy the victory. No need for skin in the game. They wouldn’t dare do with bullets what we do with gold. And afterwards, we can extract usury from the winner!”

Such thinking… “we won’t have to involve our own troops”… is dangerously, cowardly, ignorantly stupid. Harmless arms shipments on the passenger liner Lusitania, remember? That got us into WW1. WW2? The Lend-Lease Act, and when Toothbrush was too savvy for that to work, Japan was provoked into Pearl Harbor. Today? It’ll just be harmless, massive-scale arms dealing to the Ukrainians and anybody else anti-Russia. Because Muh Freedumb! Hugs and kisses from the people undermining the Second Amendment.

No more brother wars!

Land never even mentions Christ Jesus or Scripture in this warticle. Is this what Jesus would do, play favorites whenever one nation opposes another? Would Jesus gift enough ordnance to one side of a conflict that it easily obliterates the other side, then smirk and say there’s no blood on His hands?

After all, the Ukrainians are not asking us to spill our blood for their freedom. They are asking us to give them the weapons to defend themselves against Russian aggression.

Are we talking about nukes specifically? Because they kept the rest of their military weapons.

Those noble Ukrainian government officials! Wishing only to live in peace and freedom and Dumbocracy! Who paid huge bribes to now-Resident Joseph Biden for none-of-our-business!

We owe a debt of honor to the Ukrainians. We as a nation promised them that if they gave up their nuclear weapons, we and our allies would protect them from Russian invasion. Will we fulfill our promise, give them weapons to make invasion a heavier price than the Russians are willing to pay, or will we go back on our word?

On that “debt of honor to the Ukrainians” note, I found this blog post that offers a different and more accurate perspective.

The Truth About the Ukraine

h ttps://

By JD, 9 December 2021

I included an active link because the article and comments are worth reading. Here is the relevant excerpt.

As the media and international leaders point their fingers at Vladimir Putin for the current situation in the Ukraine, I thought I would take us on a trip down Memory Lane. I’m no fan of Putin or Russia, but the truth needs to be told.

First, let’s remember that Barack Obama famously said he’d like a third term where he hid in the shadows and controlled the actual President. First, that should have sent a shudder down our collective spines as the very thought of a Shadow President is anathema to the “Democracy” that they keep saying is “under attack”. It sure is.

Look at the current Administration and see how many Obama staffers are in it…

Even John Kerry is back!

Many years ago, NATO, the EU, and Russia all signed a treaty that guaranteed that all parties would not influence the Ukraine, and that the Ukraine would remain politically independent. The MSM and UN would have you believe that the annexation of Crimea was Russia violating that agreement.

Russia doesn’t want NATO for a neighbor because NATO’s original purpose was waging war against Russia. Thus, it would agree to such an arrangement… to have Ukraine be a buffer state. NATO refused to respect that previous agreement…

BUT: The Ukraine had already been given a Membership Action Plan to join NATO, along with Georgia, which violated that prior agreement. Russia no longer felt bound. Russia invaded Georgia over their NATO ascension plans in 2008.

Leaked audio has revealed that none other than Victoria Nuland was involved in the revolution that toppled democratically elected President Yanukovych. She is heard discussing replacing him with Yatsenyuk, whom she refers to as “YATS”, implying a close relationship. Who was President in 2014? Who is likely the ACTUAL President today?

I really, really like the theory that Obama is Biden’s puppetmaster. After all, he was Biden’s puppetmaster the first time around.

We already knew that the Ukrainian Revolution was a Barack Obama-led “color revolution” that they bragged about, but the question is, “Why did Yanukovych have to go?”. Despite the media singing the nebulous term “corruption” and “ties to Russia”, the TRUTH is that he refused to sign an EU membership treaty, but he had a legal basis. The Ukrainian Parliament, in compliance with previous treaty about Ukraine remaining politically independent, needed to pass new legislation authorizing the President to sign such a treaty. When they didn’t, he refused to sign it and the revolution began.

Make no mistake, it was a violent coup, planned, funded, and directed by the United States. No big deal, we do it all the time. The side we wanted won, right? Yanukovych was out, right? WRONG.

When Russian forces extracted Yanukovych for his safety as Right Sektor was taking over the Capitol, The Parliament held a vote on removing Yanukovych from office, since he could no longer fulfill his duties. They needed a 75% vote but DID NOT get it. The US & UN still recognized Yatsenyuk as the new Interim President, despite the fact that Yanukovych had not been properly removed from office.

We call that a coup when other countries do it. When we do it, we call it the “will of the people”.

Well said.

Mr. Land, if there’s a NATO-Russia war in Ukraine then we’ll be the bad actors. We’ll be the side that God holds guilty. And when I say “we”, I mean YOU, Mr. Land, you and the other fools, traitors and/or war profiteers lusting for this conflict and thinking it won’t blow back in a horrible way.

I don’t know why Land chose to support the Bidenreich. Maybe it’s a generational inability to think of America as the bad guys. Maybe it’s child-sized skeletons in the closet. Maybe Hunter Biden visited with a suitcase full of ‘reasons’. But I do know that he didn’t even try to communicate a Christian justification for a proxy war against Russia, in an article posted on a Christian-interest website.

Hanging Christmas Lights Can Kill You

A whimsical post today.

Back in my youth, a raccoon nearly murdered me. I was doing a job for a city that involved opening up its manholes and checking what was underneath. It was partly a fiber optic upgrade project and partly, the only employee who had a map of the city’s underground infrastructure had retired with no apprentices or newfangled “data bases” in his wake.

You would be surprised what governments are able to lose. Los Angeles once lost the air rain siren network that it built for the Cold War. As in, they didn’t know where the sirens physically existed anymore or how to activate them if the Russians invaded. Which the Bidenreich says is still a thing.

Anyway, I put up my safety cones in a street intersection, yanked the top off a manhole that proved to be a storm drain and screamed as a Coon in a ski mask jumped up and took a swipe at me! Actually, it was a raccoon as terrified of me as I was spooked by it, and I stumbled backwards out of my safety cone area into traffic while it fled deeper into the underworld.

No cars were passing, thankfully, otherwise I wouldn’t be here making double-entendre race jokes about coons. The world would have been less. So I got back up, made my measurements and work (and my heart) resumed normality.

Moral of the story: trash pandas depend upon the surprise round to win.

While hanging Christmas lights, a 70-year-old woman fights off insane raccoon attack by putting the ornery 40-pound beast in a headlock: ‘I could hear bones breaking in his neck’

h ttps://

A 70-year-old Massachusetts woman squared off against a presumably rabid raccoon that attacked her while she was hanging Christmas lights in her own yard . and lived to tell the tale.

Lancaster resident Donna Sanginario was putting up festive holiday lights around the exterior of her home when she said a 40-pound raccoon leapt toward her face and latched onto her arms with its claws and jaws, WHDH-TV reports.

*Mental fantasy of Grandma on a ladder, hanging Christmas lights on the eaves, when a rabid raccoon leaps at her like an Alien face hugger.* Hee hee. But as I’ve learned in the barrios of L.A., that’s not how raccoons behave. They don’t hang out on rooftops, during the day, lying in wait. They’re nocturnal trash pandas, not transplanted jaguars.

This is one of the sillier Kung-Fu Princess stories I’ve heard lately. Let’s get into the details and Christmas Spirit!

Sanginario shared her disturbing story in a Facebook post which read, “This past Wednesday around 4 pm. I was putting some lights around bushes in front of my home. I could hear this strange noise coming from the street. I turned around to see what the noise was and I was staring at a huge raccoon about 10 feet away.”

Okay, maybe it was rabid. Unless 4pm is twilight now in Massachusetts?

“Before I could do anything it jumped at me,” Sanginario’s post continued. “Worst nightmare of my life. Both me and the raccoon were screaming so loud. As I was screaming for help he fell off my arm but jumped right back on me to continue to attack.”

Been there myself. Stop laughing! I almost DIED!

“After somehow tumbling to the ground I got him in a headlock and wouldn’t let go,” she recalled. “As he was biting me I could hear bones breaking in its neck. He finally stopped screaming so I got off him. He got up and walked away. Can you believe it? I really thought I was going to die. It’s been a rough couple days but a weekend with my girlfriends is helping take the pain and trauma away.

*Tune of “Grandma got run over by a reindeer”*

Grandma got assaulted by a raccoon

Hanging up the lights in her front yard

You can say there’s no such thing as COVID

But Grandma, she still got vaxxed… for rabies.

Sanginario said that when she was able to get an edge over the angry beast, she placed it in a tight headlock. Hearing its bones cracking, she presumed that the animal . which had fallen silent by that point . was dead and that the attack was over.

When she released the animal, she was shocked to see it simply walk away.

Popping sounds notwithstanding, a 70yo woman isn’t going to kill much with her bare hands.

Horrified and hurt, Sanginario drove to the hospital, where she was found to have broken ribs in addition to a variety of puncture wounds, cuts, and bruises. She also received a series of shots since the raccoon was apparently rabid.

Its going back for Round Two means it probably was rabid after all. That’s not normal animal behavior.

We can laugh because she recovered and is back with her friends, and you can use this as an excuse to put off putting up the lights.

Proverbs 22:13 – The slothful man saith, There is a raccoon without, I shall be slain in the streets!

Guilty: Alec Baldwin’s GUN!!!

I’ve been following the Rust Incident on-and-off with unmitigated glee. Hollyweird’s split personalities between making violent movies and endorsing hardline Leftist policies finally collided in the corpse of a feminist cinematographer!

There should be no doubt about who is criminally responsible: the head armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, being responsible for all firearm safety on the project, is by default, guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

…And probably guilty of some other things, too. Pro-tip, don’t hire a sexually deranged Satanist with a tattoo of a black widow to keep you safe on the job.

The obvious and legally defined conclusion being unacceptable, after furious and hilarious investigation by all interested parties, the inevitable CORRECT conclusion is reached: Alec Baldwin’s gun fired itself!!!

It’s possible, but not likely, Alec Baldwin’s gun fired without him pulling the trigger

h ttps://

By Stephen Gutowski, 8 December 2021

Alec Baldwin made a surprising claim last week during his first major interview since he shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film “Rust”: He never pulled the trigger.

Despite his lies, I believe Baldwin is innocent. He was rebooting his career and industry after the Plandemic… not a likely time to risk homicide. Nobody has proposed a motive for him to intentionally waste his cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins. But that makes Baldwin trying to explain his innocence funny, because he’s trying to shift the guilt onto anybody except Hannah whom he PAID to be the responsible party. Pussy pass!

Despite how often people will say a gun just “went off” on its own, it’s an extremely uncommon phenomenon. Modern guns have internal safeties that make it impossible for the gun to fire without the trigger being pulled . even in cases where the gun is dropped while loaded. Even antique gun designs have features that prevent the gun from firing on its own.

Baldwin said the gun went off after he pulled the hammer back and released it.

.I cock the gun. I go, “Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?. . Baldwin told ABC News. “And then I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off. I let go of the hammer of the gun, the gun goes off..

What about fan firing?

Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said Baldwin was using a replica of a single-action revolver chambered in 45 Long Colt and made by Pietta. That design has three sears where the hammer rests as it is pulled back.

It is not possible to pull the hammer on a single-action revolver of that design back far enough to create enough force to strike the primer of an ammunition cartridge and set it off without the hammer catching on one of those sears when it’s released. The hammer will catch on a sear after being pulled back even a short distance on a properly functioning gun. That will keep it from moving forward and striking the round underneath.

That is, unless the trigger already is depressed.

If you hold the trigger down while you manipulate the hammer on a single-action revolver, you can pull the hammer back and release it without it catching on any of the sears.

The trigger drops the sears down and out of the way. If you pull the hammer back far enough while holding down the trigger, it could certainly fall with enough force to set off a round in the same way pulling the trigger with the hammer cocked would do.

Yep, that’s fan firing. Keep the trigger depressed and slap at the hammer. Although I hear it doesn’t work well without a specially designed hammer, it’s exactly the horseplay I’d expect to happen at a Western-genre film set.

First, the gun could have a serious mechanical defect. Perhaps one or multiple sears are worn out or broken? It’s possible and the police should be able to tell by examining the gun. But it likely would have been fairly obvious to anyone who handled the gun on set before the shooting that it was broken.

Anyone, such as head armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed? Whose job was checking for exactly that kind of thing? How would a casual handler detect an internal malfunction… except during its operation?

The other possibility is that the police misidentified the gun.

“We accidentally misgenderized the firearm of color involved in this particular incident. It has an actuator crank, not a trigger.”

Even if it turned out the gun fired without the trigger being pulled, as unlikely as that would be, it wouldn’t absolve Baldwin and others on set who handled the firearm before the fatal shooting. Ultimately, it took a string of negligent acts for this tragedy to unfold.

No, it took exactly two acts.

It began when somebody brought live ammunition onto the set…


…and loaded it into that firearm.

Two. Additional precautions are good but the negligence has already happened. Baldwin should have checked just on general principles but in this tightly controlled context, it wasn’t his responsibility to ensure the gun was safe.

It was Hannah’s.

The reports of target practice with the prop guns? Head armorer should have busted heads over that. Careless mixing of ammunition? Head armorer should have had a safety stand-down. That’s their job on a movie set: ensure the guns are safe. Prepare the guns to be safe. Observe that the guns are used safely.

Other people should do their part, too, but everything about the Rust shooting is…

It continued when neither the first assistant director nor the actor who handled the gun loaded with that round actually checked to ensure it was safe. It culminated when the gun was pointed at members of the crew and then fired, whether by trigger pull or manipulation of the hammer.

Gutowski is trying to excuse Hannah. This entire debacle exists for one reason only, that nobody wants to hold Hannah responsible for not doing her job.

And speaking of Hannah, she has a motive for intentionally loading that gun with the intent of killing nonspecific coworkers… particularly Baldwin’s inner circle. Not saying she did it, but there is a motive.

.Rust. budget reveals armorer was slated to earn under $8,000 for work

h ttps://

By Yaron Steinbuch, 5 November 2021

The rookie armorer on Alec Baldwin’s Western flick “Rust” was slated to earn under $8,000 for her work on set . while the producers were earmarked to take home upwards of $100,000 each, according to a draft of the production budget.

The producers of the independent movie . which had a total budget of $7,279,305 . set aside $650,000 to pay themselves and allocated $350,000 as a contingency should anything go wrong, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which obtained a preliminary budget dated Sept. 8, 2021.

Meanwhile, head armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, 24, who was working on only her second film in that capacity, was expected to earn $7,913.

Did Baldwin neglect to pay his staff?

The young armorer’s seemingly low salary for the movie, which was made under the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. Tier 1 contract, was not unusual, experts told the entertainment publication . but the number of producers was, according to one source.

Assuming that an armorer was needed for only one month, to film the action scenes, $8k is not bad. Unless it was your only armorer gig for the year, of course. And in the context of Hollywood, it’s not moving you up the social ladder.

.I would say this movie will be a struggle, but I wouldn’t say it would have crashed and burned,. one person with knowledge of similar productions who reviewed the budget told THR.

.I.m not sure why they needed six producers taking fees. They.d be falling all over each other if they’re really on set. But it’s not unheard of,. the source added.

.Rust,. which began filming in early October, employed 75 crew members, 22 principal actors and 230 background talent from New Mexico, according to THR, which cautioned that the budget it reviewed reflected a spending plan only and not the amount actually spent.

Oh, they’ve surely spent more than $8k on Hannah by now.

But the outlet said the paperwork provides some insight into the filmmakers. priorities before the Oct. 21 tragedy in which Baldwin, 63, fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, and wounded director Joel Souza with a .45-caliber Colt revolver that he believed was loaded with dummy rounds.

Baldwin was slated to earn $150,000 for his starring role while El Dorado, his production company, was taking a fee of $100,000, according to THR, which noted that the Hollywood star’s modest take reflected the fact that .Rust. was a passion project for him.

Another argument against Baldwin being responsible for the shooting.

Meanwhile, Souza was expected to make $221,872, Hutchins was slated to earn $48,945 and assistant director Dave Halls was to earn $52,830, the outlet said, citing the budget.

Did envy over money make Hannah a little… careless? While this is not a smoking gun (heh) for murder. Hannah did have means, motive and opportunity, plus was a recent graduate of Marxist U School of Envy. And her tramp stamps indicate that by age 24, she was already not making good life decisions.

I am morbidly fascinated that it’s not all being pinned on her where the blame contractually falls. As I indicated at the beginning, preventable death happening on the safety officer’s watch is generally a no-brainer. The pussy pass is strong with this one!

No criminal charges have been filed and the shooting remains under investigation by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office.

The Revival Of Babel

The question is often raised, how could a deception/tyranny as large as the Plandemic happen? I find the answer in the Tower Of Babel, and evidence of one final revival coming.

Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

…Then they said, .Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth..

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, .If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other..

So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel.because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth. -Genesis 11:1-9

Emphasis mine. Humanity was united against God, so God handled the problem by introducing disunity at a very fundamental level.

That was thousands of years ago. In our lifetime, we have completed the Great Commission. Thanks to the Internet specifically and telecommunications generally, the Gospel has reached every last spot on Earth. The only groups that can still legitimately claim ignorance are small tribes of primitives living in museum-level artificial isolation.

At the same time, however, those telecommunications undid what God imposed at Babel: humanity now enjoys unified communications across the planet. Neither are languages the barrier that they used to be. The American Empire spread English the way Alexander the Great spread Greek, by wars of conquest… WW1&2 and the Cold War in our case, finishing what the British Empire before us had started.

How was humanity able to unite over the lie of the Plandemic? Because the protections of Babel are gone. Clever of God to link the Great Commission with the devil uniting the world… although in hindsight, it’s hard to imagine having the one without the other. Both require the same infrastructure.

Where does this leave us?

Humans being naturally inclined to evil, our governments will be naturally inclined to evil… them being made of humans. With the universality of the existing government, there isn’t going to be a reboot anywhere, no safe harbor provided by physical or social isolation from the corruption.

(Yes, the major players hate each other. It doesn’t change anything. Like pigs fighting at a trough, their disagreements are exclusively over who gets how much of the gibs.)

But all is not well in Commieland. There are mass protests everywhere. People who took the jabs and then got jobbed on the promised return of stolen freedoms, have sworn off the boosters. Others have still not forgiven Cuomo for killing Grandma. And more medicos every day are choosing to disassociate from the clot shot shitshow. It is hard to ignore the devil when he’s turning your home into an open-air prison.

As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. .Tell us,. they said, .when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?.

Jesus answered: .Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, .I am the Messiah,. and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

.Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. -Matthew 24:3-14

There’s a case to be made that this passage applies to the entirety of time post-Jesus. However, He was asked specifically about the ending, not about what ‘business as usual’ would be like. As if half of the Old Testament could not be described by “wars and rumors of wars”!

Taking it as a description of our near future, then, I see a revival happening. There are few false Christs running around today. There ARE many ANTI-Christs, yes, but people falsely claiming to be Christ? That’s the sort of thing that Globohomo would do to in response to an upswing in Christian fervor… get in front of it, plant their own ‘leaders’ to maintain control of the new movement and so on. Heck, they ran that play just the other day with the Patriot Front protest in D.C.

(TL;DR on that protest: The Bidenreich gave a self-described group of fascist white supremacists permission to march in white hoods on the Capitol steps. No arrests were made and it was totally, ABSOLUTELY NOT a staged Two Minutes Hate.)

So, there will be one last revival, which will take place about the time of World War Fatigue. Also, at roughly the time that California has its “Big One” earthquake and its coastal regions slide into the Pacific Ocean. (Do not cry for me. I would have pushed that button myself while singing a jaunty tune.)

The next step, a great massacre of believers across the globe, is clearly repeated in End Times prophecy going all the way to the Fifth Seal of Revelation. It is not our fate to be quietly shut out of society to live wild in the boonies and Faucivilles. We will be hunted down and killed.

That’s good for me; I do not handle confinement well. But it also indicates that Globohomo will not be able to tame the increase in zeal for Christ with their false Messiahs. Their pretty lies will die and that will partly be a direct consequence of them lying to us so much about the Plandemic. Behold the REAL vaccination you’re giving us, Wormtongues!

Stupid age restrictions… here’s an archive of that video collage of young sports players dropping dead of NOBODY KNOWS WHAT BECAUSE THE VAXX IS KNOOOOWN TO BE SAAAAFE!!! h/t ‘J Wilderness’ youTube channel. And I’ll throw in Chapter Two because Let’s Go Brandon.

So, that’s how I see where we are and where we’re headed in the near future. I’m not a prophet but with a good knowledge of the day’s headlines, maybe it doesn’t take a prophet anymore.

Face Diaper Lie Detector!

At first I rolled my eyes at this study claiming that face masks improved the ability of jurors to detect lies. And then, the horrified realization of what they might have actually discovered: masks make everybody look like criminals!

Face masks make it EASIER for high court jurors to tell if witnesses are lying or telling the truth, study claims

h ttps://

By Ian Randall for Mailonline, 6 December 2021

High court jurors are actually better able to tell whether those on the stand are lying or telling the truth if the latter are wearing a face mask, a study has claimed.

University of Portsmouth-led experts studied how COVID has affected the lie-detecting capacities of juries via measures like face masks and virtual courtrooms.

They found that facial expressions and other non-verbal behaviours that might be lost behind a mask or over a video screen are in fact unreliable indicators of deceit.

Given this, masking these signals can make it easier for jurors to assess truthfulness . and suggest that anti-COVID measures are not detrimental to court proceedings.

That’s the motive behind this study. The eggheads wanted to show “lockdowns don’t wreck the system”.

In their study, Professors Vrij and Hartwig reviewed hundreds of past studies on deception, focussing on those that assessed how well we can identify lies based on non-verbal cues such as demeanour, gestures and facial expressions.

These indicated people are only able to correctly detect deceit based on these indicators half of the time . an accuracy rate little better than random guesswork.

According to the team, habitual liars know how to cover up tell-tale behaviours that might give a more truthful individual away.

Having served on juries myself, this is just ridiculous. The jury doesn’t sit close enough to check for microexpressions and subtle gestures. Even assuming that jurors have appropriate training, they aren’t given opportunity. Forget about tools.

‘We draw attention to fundamentally problematic aspects of lie detection . in particular, the fact that non-verbal behaviour is not helpful,’ explained Professor Vrij.

Thank you, Captain Obvious. The world would be a better place if everybody’s eyelid twitched when they lied. Or, if every liar was immediately struck by lightning. The latter situation is referred to by some as ‘heaven’.

The team also explored studies that looked at whether it was easier or not to detect a liar in person than it was via a recording or video call . finding that lies were spotted just as well in both face-to-face and virtual courtrooms.

Meaning that jurors are clueless either way. I went to the linked study, which wasn’t available except for the abstract:

Deception and Lie Detection in the Courtroom: The Effect of Defendants Wearing Medical Face Masks

h ttps://

During the COVID-19 pandemic, defendants and witnesses (as well as the prosecution and defense counsel) may wear medical face masks to prevent the spread of the virus. Alternatively, courtrooms proceedings may take place virtually. In this article, we discuss how these deviations from normal procedures may affect jurors. lie detection ability and decision-making. Although research addressing this specific question does not exist

Oh. Dangit, another fake headline supporting a fake study in order to justify a very real lockdown.

But then the suspicion hit me, that mask wearing might truly be influencing jurors! Which means that this no-research, certified-!Science! study is a dangerous lie. I already know that, for example, defense attorneys sometimes put fake glasses on Dindu defendants in order to make them look more nerdy and less thuggy.

…we are able to formulate an informed view based on the extensive deception literature. Since nonverbal signs of deception in the face and body are virtually absent, we conclude that medical face mask-wearing or virtual courtroom proceedings will not hamper jurors. lie detection abilities. If jurors can hear the speech well, they may become better at detecting deception if they pay more attention to speech content, which may occur as a result of mask-wearing in the courtroom.

Sigh, yes, clear speaking enables jurors to better understand what they’re being told.

Screw these professional experts talking out of their asses! I’m gonna do the research that Tenured Faculty don’t want to!

26 June 2020

To combat unconscious biases in promotions, soldiers will no longer be required to include pictures of themselves or indicate their race or gender in promotion packets starting in August, Army officials said.

Prior to the change, both officers and enlisted soldiers had to submit a Department of Army photo of themselves and check a box on promotion packets to indicate their racial origin and gender.

These changes come as the Defense Department as a whole is looking at how to end racial disparities in promotions and the military’s justice system.

Promotion boards are very much like a jury trial. Now those nasty white supremacists won’t be able to keep the little black man down! Checkmate, Adolf!

3 August 2021

Removing photos from promotion and selection boards has had adverse effects on diversity, according to Vice Adm. John Nowell Jr., the chief of naval personnel.

.I think we should consider reinstating photos in selection boards,. Nowell said Tuesday at The Navy League’s 2021 Sea-Air-Space Exposition. .We look at, for instance, the one-star board over the last five years, and we can show you where, as you look at diversity, it went down with photos removed..

The comments come a little more than a year after the Department of Defense moved to eliminate photos from promotion and selection boards.

.It.s a meritocracy. We’re only going to pick the best of the best, but we’re very clear with our language . that we want them to consider diversity across all areas. Right?. Nowell said. “And therefore . I think having a clear picture on this just makes it easier. So, actually, our data show that it would support adding photos back in..

It worked. When jurors can’t see the person, they really do base their decisions only on the available information!

Prohibited Employment Policies/Practices

h ttps://

(As of December 2021)

Although state and federal equal opportunity laws do not clearly forbid employers from making pre-employment inquiries that relate to, or disproportionately screen out members based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, or age, such inquiries may be used as evidence of an employer’s intent to discriminate unless the questions asked can be justified by some business purpose…

Similarly, employers should not ask for a photograph of an applicant. If needed for identification purposes, a photograph may be obtained after an offer of employment is made and accepted.

Even the government recognizes that the ability to see a person’s face can influence the treatment that person receives. We should have been putting bags over the heads of defendants a long time ago because of equality, or equity, or Equifax… you know, the thing.

Or would that make them all look guilty? We should put all defendants in Fonzie masks.

This dissertation examines the effect of various aspects of defendant appearance on criminal case outcomes. Chapter One uses an experimental vignette study to investigate the effect of defendant race on conviction rates and assigned sentence length in the previously unexplored context of trials for nonviolent property crimes. The results indicate that white defendants are convicted more often and receive higher sentences than black defendants, in part due to race-based jury nullification.


However, the results also indicate that racial stereotypes disadvantaging black defendants affect both verdict and sentencing decisions. Chapter Two uses the same experimental vignette study as Chapter One to examine the effects of defendant dress and shackling. The results indicate that, at least in the context of trials for nonviolent property crimes, defendants in prison garb are convicted more often than defendants in civilian clothing by certain subgroups of mock jurors, providing empirical support for the Supreme Court’s holding in Estelle v. Williams, 425 U.S. 501 (1976). Additionally, defendants in prison garb are sentenced to significantly longer prison terms than defendants in casual civilian attire. Finally, Chapter Three provides the first empirical evidence on the effect of indiscriminate juvenile shackling on case outcomes. Recently, there has been a flurry of state action banning indiscriminate juvenile shackling by restricting the circumstances under which juveniles can be shackled in court. Using juvenile case data from North Carolina (where a ban on indiscriminate juvenile shackling was passed in 2007) and Tennessee (where no ban was passed until 2016) spanning 2004 to 2012, double-difference and triple-difference analyses are conducted in order to shed light on the effect of such bans.

So, face diapers would be increasing the conviction rate thanks to the Hannibal Lecter Mask Effect. If people were going to jail at all these days, I mean. These 2021 paid, tenured professors couldn’t be bothered to do enough homework to find a Vanderbilt study on their assigned topic two years ago that an Internet dudebro located in five minutes.

Speaking of ‘these’ professors, let’s look at whether face diapers really do affect the ability to detect lies.

Notice I’m re-linking to the original article. For shame!

The big pause: Lying is quite a complex process for the body and brain to deal with. First your brain produces the truth which it then has to suppress before inventing the lie and the performance of that lie.

This often leads to a longer pause than normal before answering, plus a verbal stalling technique like “Why do you ask that?. rather than a direct and open response.

Encounters with law enforcement being naturally stressful, this is not trustworthy.

The eye dart: Humans have more eye expressions than any other animal and our eyes can give away if we’re trying to hide something.

When we look up to our left to think we’re often accessing recalled memory, but when our eyes roll up to our right we can be thinking more creatively. Also, the guilt of a lie often makes people use an eye contact cut-off gesture, such as looking down or away.

Again, avoidant eye contact can easily be just stress.

The lost breath: Bending the truth causes an instant stress response in most people, meaning the fight or flight mechanisms are activated.

The mouth dries, the body sweats more, the pulse rate quickens and the rhythm of the breathing changes to shorter, shallower breaths that can often be both seen and heard.

Invisible thanks to masking. One point!

Overcompensating: A liar will often over-perform, both speaking and gesticulating too much in a bid to be more convincing. These over the top body language rituals can involve too much eye contact (often without blinking!) and over-emphatic gesticulation.

Two points! Body language doesn’t communicate well via Zoom.

The poker face: Although some people prefer to employ the poker face, many assume less is more and almost shut down in terms of movement and eye contact when they’re being economical with the truth.

Three points!

The face hide: When someone tells a lie they often suffer a strong desire to hide their face from their audience. This can lead to a partial cut-off gesture like the well-know nose touch or mouth-cover.


Self-comfort touches: The stress and discomfort of lying often produces gestures that are aimed at comforting the liar, such as rocking, hair-stroking or twiddling or playing with wedding rings. We all tend to use self-comfort gestures but this will increase dramatically when someone is fibbing.


Micro-gestures: These are very small gestures or facial expressions that can flash across the face so quickly they are difficult to see. Experts will often use filmed footage that is then slowed down to pick up on the true body language response emerging in the middle of the performed lie.

The best time to spot these in real life is to look for the facial expression that occurs after the liar has finished speaking. The mouth might skew or the eyes roll in an instant give-away.

SIX! What is going on here?

Heckling hands: The hardest body parts to act with are the hands or feet and liars often struggle to keep them on-message while they lie.

To conclude, this article is titled “Face masks help jurors detect lies”, it quotes a study that claims jurors can’t tell either way and closes by offering nine tips for detecting lies… seven of which are made more difficult by face masks and teleconferencing. This Daily Mail article actually debunks itself. And when actual research was performed for ten minutes, the study indicated that wearing face masks would increase incarceration rates because Hannibal Lecter.

Which means, contra the professionals quoted above, jury trials ARE being biased by Plandemic lockdown rules.

Thanks for playing, University of Portsmouth. !Science!

P.S. The tenth way to spot a liar is “they won re-election”.
