Let’s Go, Brandon!

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/newsmax/videos/1566148943728037 [6:08] to hear Chris Salcedo talk about the Left’s hypocritical finger wagging over LGB.

Breitbart’s John Hayward sent out a tweet thread that made a ton of sense. “One reason Dems are so comically furious over ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ is they understand it’s the kind of thing that triggers preference cascades – a moment when people look around and realize that huge numbers of their neighbors share what the ruling party claims is a fringe opinion.

The Left expends a huge amount of effort on making its adversaries feel marginalized. They mastered the dark art of making the majority FEEL like a fringe minority. The demoralization-destabilization-subversion strategy of the Left is designed to make normal people feel abnormal.

“’Let’s Go Brandon’ is a moment when vast numbers of Americans who have been told Joe Biden won a sweeping election victory, and has a mystical mandate to destroy and rebuild America, look around and realize most of the country severely dislikes him and distrusts his media.

That’s not a fringe or minority opinion. It’s not extremism. It’s the truth – and it’s not an unreasonable opinion. Biden has been a huge failure in every way that matters. People are still angry about Afghanistan even though his media has ‘moved on.’ They see how feeble he is.

Biden’s horrifying economy is hitting people right in the face, every damn day – every time they visit a gas station or buy groceries. It’s obvious and visceral. No amount of media spin can hide it. The Biden administration’s excuses are hilariously obvious and stupid lies.

But the big reason Let’s Go Brandon caught fire is that Biden and his handlers are so hostile toward the American middle class. Their lies drip with contempt. They can’t conceal the loathing they feel toward the common man. Their policies are aggressively attacking your life.

The media is stunned and panicked over this because they still think they control the national memory bank. They don’t realize people are still thinking and talking about words and deeds the media has deemed irrelevant, archaic, and forgotten.

Afghanistan is the obvious example, but I’ll bet most DNC Media types would be shocked to learn how many people are thinking about Joe Biden’s energy policies, like killing Keystone, every time they watch those prices tick up at the pump. The media forgot, but we haven’t.

Reporters live on social media these days, and they know how lefty astroturf operations work – they’re willing participants in so many of them! – so they assume everything is an orchestrated political op, but Let’s Go Brandon (and its more vulgar predecessor) are real grassroots.

So now they’re going to try to control the preference cascade by shaming and bullying people out of saying Let’s Go Brandon. Back to the old playbook – trick the majority into feeling like a minority, make a popular position feel like fringe extremism, demoralize, destabilize.

It might work, or the moment could pass, although little about Biden’s performance to date suggests he is able or willing to reverse the trend. Biden and his handlers would snarl with rage at the suggestion they should reach out to the growing number of Americans who dislike him.

But as Biden’s loyalists climb on their high horses, purge their memories of everything the Left said about GOP presidents, and shriek about civility, just remember: BIDEN STARTED THIS. He and his party said F-you to a big chunk of America long before they said F-you back. /end”

COVID-19 Update

I get the impression that these people are among the most vaxx resistant, which makes sense. Not only did many of them catch and recover from the ‘rona, but also they saw the adverse reactions up close and in person.

When I was hospitalized recently, my favorite nurse said she had treated many ‘rona patients without catching it and did NOT trust the vaxxx. But the hospital was doing nothing to stick up for her rights. She couldn’t afford to lose her job, so had submitted to the jab. Another of my nurses was leaving a few days after I was discharged rather than let them inject her. The hospital had also posted big signs in the ER forbidding any recording devices. Let me guess what that was all about……. ::fuming::

I was angry on their behalf BEFORE I met any of them or experienced the low morale and rushed care the staffing shortages inflicted on me for my blessedly brief stay. I just hope to God I don’t have to go back!

In the video [6:58], a scientist with a child examines the risk to benefit ratio of vaxxxing kids. In his calculations, he only considers the known risk of myo/pericarditis vs. the demonstrated benefit from clinical trials. But even with that, the numbers don’t even begin to support mass vaxxxing of minors.

There are now thousands of reports of “neoplasms” (i.e., new tumors) in previously healthy people who got the ‘rona jabs. These include both noncancerous growths and malignant cancers. In addition, individuals have experienced existing tumors abruptly worsen and, in some cases, patients have rapidly deteriorated and died.

A few doctors have also spoken out about the spikes in cancer they have seen. “Since January 1, in the laboratory, I’m seeing a 20-times increase of endometrial cancers over what I see on an annual basis,” pathologist and immunologist/virologist Ryan Cole. “I’m not exaggerating at all because I look at my numbers year over year, and I’m like ‘Gosh, I’ve never seen this many endometrial cancers before.’” Cole said he’s also seeing invasive melanomas in young people “skyrocketing.” [See his 32 minute interview at the Rumble link below.]

As I’ve mentioned before, Israel has one of the highest national vaxxx rates in the world. And now they’re jabbing their kids. The nation has put a huge amount of pressure on citizens to accept the shots, including instituting vaccine passports that are required before citizens can leave the country or enter many stores and entertainment venues.

Their scientists have been good about reporting the efficacy of the jabs, including that its fades rapidly time and isn’t as good for the Delta variant. But they don’t appear to have been exactly pro-active about the adverse reactions issue. In fact, the woman who founded the Testimonies Project (third link below) said she has spoken with “hundreds of people” and “read thousands of testimonies” of people who have been adversely affected by the jab but who have been afraid to speak publicly “due to hostility around this subject.

In the past months, I’ve been hearing about more and more people I know who experienced severe adverse effects shortly after receiving the Pfizer shot. I also noticed that no news company, journalist, reporter, or anyone investigated these events thoroughly and published the data.” After the government began administering the experimental drug to the nation’s children, she realized someone must raise the alarm. “That’s when I decided to take on this task,” she said.

CLICK https://rumble.com/vn212d-the-testimonies-project-the-movie.html [1:07:05] to see the project’s film featuring 40 personal testimonies. Full disclosure: I couldn’t bear to watch it.

Elsewhere, I saw that the news of adverse reactions is spreading in Israel. More than one million Israelis have already sacrificed the freedoms their vaxxx passports gave them rather than submit to the now mandatory booster shot.

CLICK the link to watch a Tucker Carlson report [3:26] that I can’t find anywhere else. It appears to be recent and it covers the spike in the numbers of excess non-COVID deaths. At the second link below, Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn writes on the same subject saying, “If there really are non-infection excess deaths, then the goal is to look beyond often bad and uncertain data from government agencies to correctly figure out whether something especially concerning is happening. Perhaps it could be something that governments do not want to acknowledge and deal with, as we shall see.

He seems to do a thorough job of looking at what the actual number of COVID deaths (from, not with) might be and what the lockdown-related death toll is. Then, he moves on to vaccine-related deaths. And while I admit to being whelmed by all the data he presents, I did fully understand his conclusion:

When you combine (1) the negative efficacy of the vaccine with (2) the negative all-cause mortality benefit, it’s impossible to justify vaccination. Either alone is sufficient to kill the benefit; both of them together makes things even more difficult for recommending vaccination. The bottom line is clear: If you got the vaccine, you were simply more likely to die. The younger you are, the greater the disparity.

All Souls’ Day

Catholics are urged to pray for the souls in Purgatory every day, but on November 2, we focus on it exclusively. So, to my Catholic readers, don’t neglect this important duty. And to my non-Catholic Christian friends, here is what the RCC actually teaches.

From The Catechism of the Catholic Church:

All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of Heaven. The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned.

This teaching is also based on the practice of prayer for the dead, mentioned in Sacred Scripture… From the beginning the Church has honored the memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them, above all the Eucharistic sacrifice, so that, thus purified, they may attain the beatific vision of God. The Church also commends almsgiving, indulgences, and works of penance undertaken on behalf of the dead.” (CCC 1030-1032)

Myth: Purgatory is a second chance at salvation.

Truth: At death, a person’s eternal destiny is sealed: s/he will either spend eternity in Heaven or Hell. Purgatory is a temporary place that people who are already assured of Heaven may go if they are not yet ready to approach the All Holy God. C.S. Lewis noted that while his church did not teach its existence, he hoped it did, because he figured he’d still need to get cleaned up a bit before approaching the Throne.

Myth: Purgatory isn’t in the Bible.

Truth: In 1 Corinthians 3;11-15, St. Paul describes a period after death, but before Heaven, in which a Christian is purified with fire. That’s Purgatory. There’s more on this at the second link below.

No one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.

Myth: Purgatory is a way of being saved apart from Christ.

Truth: As already mentioned, Purgatory is only for people who have died in friendship with Christ and are assured of Heaven. Further, the purifying process of Purgatory is only through the grace of Jesus Christ. So rather than being something in competition with Christ, Purgatory is an occasion for the grace of Christ.

Myth: Indulgences are a way of buying salvation.

Truth: An indulgence is something granted by the Church that limits or removes a person’s need for Purgatory after death. Indulgences do not, however, determine whether a person goes to Heaven or Hell. Further, while historically there have been abuses regarding indulgences, the Catholic Church teaches that the selling of spiritual things is a sin called “simony.” There is more on this at the third link below.

Myth: Praying for the dead is a late medieval corruption of the faith.

Truth: Praying for the dead was practiced by Jews prior to Jesus, as recorded in 2 Maccabees 12. It was also practiced in the early Church. More on this at the fourth link below.

It’s Election Day! Get out and vote!

CHOICE: Expect more of this hypocrisy as the Supremes consider challenges to the Texas heartbeat law.

DEMOCRATS are in TROUBLE: And it couldn’t happen to a bigger bunch of freedom-destroying schmucks. A new NBC News poll that found 71% of Americans say the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction, including a near majority of Democrats and Biden’s disapproval rating is at 54%.

Republicans, believe it or not, have double-digit leads in dealing with border security, inflation, crime, national security, the economy and — shockingly — on getting things done. The only good news for Mr. Biden and the Democrats in this poll is that the midterm elections aren’t for another year.” – Chuck Todd

FAUXTUS: Steve Hilton talks about the “dead parrot” presidency. [7:59] – President Pathetic revealed once again that he is not in charge of anything. At his G20 presser, he said he’d take questions, then pulled out a list and said, “I’m told I should start with AP.

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/bennyjohnson/videos/184216877206232 [3:22] to hear a Sky News report. “This man needs a retirement home.”

G20 PHOTO: Shoving Biden off to the side speaks volumes. The American president has always been front and center in these group photos, which is only fitting. Without us, nothing these people decide to do would get accomplished.

PARENTS RIGHTS: MSNBC and the Washington Post both pushed the Big Fat Lie that Virginians supporting Youngkin are a bunch of white racists. Their problem isn’t about critical race theory being taught in the schools (cuz we totes know it isn’t … except it is). It ALL about fanning “the embers of white resentment.

On Monday, Juan Williams (the soon-to-be former token Democrat that I never listen to on The Five) took up the Left’s “Parents’ Rights Is Racist” cry in an opinion piece at The Hill in which he said that Parents’ Rights “is a campaign to stop classroom discussion of Black Lives Matter protests or slavery because it could upset some children, especially white children who might feel guilt.

Noting that McAuliffe calls the phrase a “racist dog whistle,” Williams repeated the lie that Trump called white supremacists “very fine people.”

PFIZER BOOSTER: Israel has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. Recently, their scientists reported that the numbers of hospitalizations and serious cases of COVID for individuals who had gotten a third Pfizer dose compared very favorably with those for individuals who had only gotten the initial two-dose jab some months ago. Unfortunately, the report I read did not mention the numbers or types of adverse side effects that followed on getting a booster shot.

RESISTANCE: The California-based burger chain, In-N-Out, is being punished with closings and fines for refusing to screen customers’ COVID status. So Florida’s chief financial officer, Jimmy Patronis, sent In-N-Out’s owner a letter inviting her to move to Florida.

Florida is among the top destinations for residents fleeing high unemployment, high taxes and invasive COVID regulations in Democrat blue states. In California, the unemployment rate is 7.5%; in Florida, it’s 5.3%.

SHORTAGES: In Seattle, the fire department is unable to cover required shifts. Some houses have gone offline, leaving their neighborhoods vulnerable.

In Los Angeles County, the sheriff is refusing to enforce the county’s vaxxx mandate, saying that unscheduled retirements, worker compensation claims, employees quitting, and a reduction in qualified applicants have already created an “imminent threat to public safety.”

In New York City, about 9,000 workers, including firefighters and police officers, are on unpaid leave as of Monday for refusing the vaxxx. NYC Councilman Mark D. Levine tweeted his opinion that firefighters who refused the vaxxx because they don’t care about public safety. Best tweet response: “Yes, the guys that regularly run into burning buildings don’t care about the welfare of others. Go with that.” – Mark Hemingway. Another tweeter with a long memory reposted a Feb. 9, 2020, tweet from Councilman Levine that said, “In powerful show of defiance of #coronavirus scare, huge crowds gathering in NYC’s Chinatown for ceremony ahead of annual #LunarNewYear parade. Chants of “be strong Wuhan!” If you are staying away, you are missing out!

VAXXX MANDATES: Nineteen states have filed federal lawsuits against the Biden administration’s vaxxx mandate.

They include Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming
