Black lives matter

Black lives matter, as do all lives of whatever melanin content.  Black Lives Matter is radical Marxist revolutionary movement funded by George Soros’ Open Society.  Black lives don’t matter to Black Lives Matter, to them Black lives are expendable tools to leverage faux White Guilt and advance the Marxist revolution.  Black lives don’t matter to the Democrat Party.  If they did they would adopt the Republican Party platform.  Or simply just become Republicans.

    • Why not say Black Schools Matter, as we say?
    • Why not say Black School Choice Matters, as we say?
    • Why not say Black Families Matter, as we say?
    • Why not say Black Fathers Matter, as we say?
    • Why not say Black Marriages Matter, as we say
    • Why not say Black on Black Crime Matters, as we say?
    • Why not say Black Jobs Matter, Black Ownership Matters, Black Small Businesses Matter, as we say?
    • Why not say Black Unborn Lives Matter, as we say?
    • Why not say that God Matters Most of All who breathed the breath of life into Black Lives, and all lives? Why not say Black Churches Matter?(h/t John C. Wright)

Why not indeed?  Because Marxism requires a victim class whose misery can be weaponized against the society which has been marked for destruction and takeover.  Ever since the 1920’s the Communists in America have sought to incite a race war that would bring traditional America down and drive it into the waiting arms of International Communism.

The deeper the Democrats dive into their plot to destroy America’s Constitutional Republic and replace it with first a Socialist government and the a full fledged Communist surveillance/police state modeled after the People’s Republic of China, the more thoughtful people are seeing them for what they are.

People are waking up.  People are daring to speak.  The counter revolution is building.  The Donks are so desperate to destroy President Trump that they are destroying themselves  despite all the cover they get from their media allies.

These educated ladies know (how did they escape the K-12 Indoctrination camps?) that the United States was founded by Christians and the Founders well understood that the Christian religion was integral to and necessary for the survival of the new Nation.  One of the first expenditures authorized by Congress was the purchase of 20,000 Bibles for the moral instruction of the young.  Today when faith in Jesus seems to be at an all time low, instruction in Christian morals if not doctrine would go a long way to alleviating our problems, whether Faith is present or not.

[Sarcasm alert!]  Follow a religion that teaches us to love each other because we are all alike fellow children of God?   What a hateful idea!  Unbelievable!  Literally.  [End sarcasm alert.  You may now return to your regular state of mind.}

Which seems pretty self evident to me, but is simply unfathomable to the socially conscious and  majorly concerned who are casting about in random desperation to find the magic bullet that will put paid to racism and absolve them of their White Privilege/Guilt.  “Racism” used to have something to do with a preference for certain ethnographic characteristics and an aversion to others, but now just means, “Shut up.  You aren’t parroting my preferred bleeding edge PC talking points so I’m just going to call you names until I make you cry and you run home to Mommy, since I can’t come up with a rational argument so save my soul.  Not that I admit to having a soul, or you either, for that matter.”  Or just plain “Shut up.  Because reasons.”

See?  We care.

The myth of the peaceful protester

These are not peaceful protesters

The mainstream propaganda outlets have made much of the supposed injustice of the forces of law and order exercising violent repression on so called “peaceful protesters”.  This is done to de-legitimize the police, the national guard and the authority of the State.  An excellent example is provided by the coverage of the eviction of protesters from around the White House last week: “Live updates: Trump poses for photos at church after police force out protesters; demonstrations intensify overnight.

Whatever else these people may be they are NOT peaceful protesters.  Peaceful protesters do exist as for example at a sit-in where participants sit around in a circle singing Kumbaya, a Tea Party demonstration or a group praying the rosary outside an abortion clinic.  These are characterized by a vocal but passive transmission of their message as opposed to an active, threatening confrontation.

Civilizations foster peace among the members of their societies; the widespread absence of peace is an indicator of weakness of a society and a harbinger of its demise.  The current spate of Well Organized Spontaneous Demonstrations (TM) kicked off by the death of George Floyd are both an indication of the decline of American civilization and an accelerant of that decline.

Every culture has misfits which are more or less handled by the social conventions of that society by public censure, incarceration, exile or execution.  When organized groups arise and are not quashed by the culture, then that culture has a potentially fatal problem, a revolution in the making.

Houston, we have a problem.

Unsurprisingly little remarked in the mainstream media is how widespread the ideological underpinnings of the protesters has become in our culture.  Unsurprising because you would not expect the these organs which serve as disseminators of subversive agitprop to alarm the nation by pointing out that the ideological infection of Marx and Lenin are at epidemic levels and rising.  There is in America today a large and growing revolutionary counter culture that advocates a violent overthrow of our Constitutional government and of Western civilization entirely.

Yes, we have known for years that the Democrat Party has long since become a wholly owned subsidiary of Communism International.  Yes, we know that the entertainment industry has spread subversion of morals everywhere.   Yes, we know that Socialist ideology has permeated our educational system.  Yes, we know that the Deep State is infested with these creatures.  Now we are beginning – just beginning! – to see fruits of allowing this wickedness to burrow among us and fester largely unchecked.

Your humble correspondent does business out of an office in Highland Park in N.E. Los Angeles.  I was shocked to see the number of predominantly Hispanic BLM demonstrators that came out of the surrounding residential neighborhoods.  I had known that there were a few radicals and Bernie supporters back there, but when they came out on foot by ones and twos, and dozens and scores to aggregate in their thousands I realized that the crisis was upon us all.

These local protesters turned out to be peaceful in fact; they did not see the need to burn down their own neighborhood to prove their point.  At one point they formed a caravan and went off to who knows where to protest.  What was their behavior like there?

Besides their number there is one other thing that surprised me, though it shouldn’t have, their coordination.  They all knew when and where they were to gather.  Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and others, are their means of communication; free, universal and short of turning off the internet, virtually unstoppable.  They have been networking on social media, and now are networking face to face as they put into practice what they have no doubt been discussing among themselves.  But there are other, more sinister means of communication over the internet.

One of them is CrimethInk.com, a website promoting left wing radicalism and anarchy.  These people are ‘way out in left field, and sound just like the radical leftists of the 1960’s, these people are young, fanatical  and dangerous.  The website, which claims to have been around for 20 years, offers a wealth of useful information for anarchists, which is what they call themselves here.  There is an online store offering bulk propaganda materials and well as an extensive online library covering such topics as Current Events, Strategy and Analysis, Theory and Critique, History, How To, Arts, Narratives and Classics.  One of the categories is Adventure; guaranteed a whole hell of a lot more exciting than what you’ll find in the schools.  What makes this so deadly attractive for young people is that it offers a higher purpose for their lives than the pursuit of sexual hedonism, drug addiction or a lifetime paying off student loans for that worthless degree in Bitter Victim Studies.

One of the recently posted stories is from a participant in the Minneapolis riots offers his fellow anarchists some cogent tactical observations and analysis of the action.   Summary of the article over at Vox Day, worth the read just to know your enemy.

Peaceful Protestors

The non-violent tactics of peaceful protesters served two familiar aims and one unusual one:

  • They created a spectacle of legitimacy, which was intensified as police violence escalated.
  • They created a front line that blocked police attempts to advance when they deployed outside of the Precinct.
  • In addition, in an unexpected turn of affairs, the peaceful protestors shielded those who employed projectiles.

Whenever the police threatened tear gas or rubber bullets, non-violent protesters lined up at the front with their hands up in the air, chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot!” Sometimes they kneeled, but typically only during relative lulls in the action. When the cops deployed outside the Precincts, their police lines frequently found themselves facing a line of “non-violent” protestors. This had the effect of temporarily stabilizing the space of conflict and gave other crowd members a stationary target. While some peaceful protestors angrily commanded people to stop throwing things, they were few and grew quiet as the day wore on. This was most likely because the police were targeting people who threw things with rubber bullets early on in the conflict, which enraged the crowd. It’s worth noting that the reverse has often been the case—we are used to seeing more confrontational tactics used to shield those practicing non-violence (e.g., at Standing Rock and Charlottesville). The reversal of this relationship in Minneapolis afforded greater autonomy to those employing confrontational tactics.

What is immediately clear is that these “peaceful protesters” are nothing of the sort.  They are aggressive and confrontational.  Even while forming a static barrier with their bodies they shield those who are more violent and when the opportunity is presented become actively violent themselves.  Beyond that, acts of vandalism and looting are hardly what can be called peaceful, there is nothing peaceful about destruction, theft, assault and arson.

Further, it is one thing to protest an injustice to attempt to reform a system, it is quite another to use a protest movement as cover to undermine and destroy a nation.  And that, by their own admission, is the goal of Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the Anarchists, all of them serving to wreck our Constitutional Republic and replace it with a totalitarian, collectivist form of government.  They want a revolution, nothing less.  Of course these young “not-a-bit-peaceful” activists are nothing more than puppets, useful idiots in unwitting service to the same hidden masters as pull the strings of the agitprop spewing  talking heads in the media.

As Patriots is is our duty to do our bit to stymie the violent revolution brewing in our midst.  No, we don’t need to go man the barricades shoulder to shoulder with the police.  What we must to is actively counter the false narratives promulgated by the revolutionaries and their allies.  This means that we need to call out the lies of the media.  No need to get into a screaming match with the people who are simply being fashionably congruent by repeating the left’s talking points.  But we can ask questions.

“Excuse me, what is peaceful about throwing things at the police?”  “Would you still think they were peaceful of they looted and burned your business?”  “Can you explain to me how arson is peaceful?”  “If only black lives matter, does your life matter?  What about mine?”

It also helps to have some facts on call.  “No, the police are not all brutal racists who spend their time on the job hunting down and killing unarmed blacks.  The police shot 14 unarmed blacks in 2019.  They also shot 25 unarmed whites.  We all know the names of some unarmed blacks that were killed, Trayvon Martin, George Floyd.  Do you know the names of any of the whites recently killed by police?  How come you aren’t protesting their deaths?”  Some of them are really pretty bad.  We do need reforms in the law enforcement and justice system, but abolishing them is not the answer.

Meanwhile, stay away from crowds.

Still they lie to us and still we believe them – shame on us

I am posting without change the observations of Karl Denninger at his Market Ticker blog.  He has been all over this Wuhan Flu pandemic from the beginning, I have frequently quoted him before on this issue.  He is a great researcher, knows science and understands statistical math and how to use it.  He is unbiased in that he pretty much despises both the Democrat and Republican Parties equally.  I give you his thought below complete and unedited.  It is based largely on this that I based my own conclusions.  Here’s Karl:

Putting Facts Together: What They WON’T Do

None of this is in dispute; if you have an argument to make with any of these alleged facts let’s hear it in the comments, with your data source.

  • As many as half, and in some states as many as 80%, of people who have died from Covid-19 were nursing home or other long-term-care home residents.
  • Black people have a higher fatality rate for the virus than white people.  Various commentators have attempted to explain this as a race-based difference in health care access, although no such evidence actually exists (e.g. in KY, where the Governor has announced an explicitly racist and thus unconstitutional program to “cover all black people” with health insurance — a program based on ethnicity and thus constitutionally impermissible.)  However, black people also have a higher attack rate than whites, which cannot be explained by any alleged difference in health-care access.  Obviously, if you are attacked at a higher rate given the same percentage of bad outcomes more of that group on a numerical basis will have bad outcomes.
  • Meat-packing plant workers have a materially higher attack rate than non meat-packing workers.  Said workers are also over-represented, by a lot, among Hispanics.
  • Said meat-packing plant and other agricultural workers, however, have a lower fatality (bad outcome) rate than among the general population in places such as New York.  And not by a little either — by a factor of 10 or more.  That’s well beyond statistical significance.  Indeed the CFR among these groups are in the low tenths of one percent.  That’s in the realm of ordinary seasonal flu.
  • Japan controlled their outbreak without lockdowns.  People like to point to “mask-wearing” but are ignoring the 900lb Gorilla in the room when it comes to Japan and South Korea — about 3/4 of all homes have bidets.  The percentage of homes in the US with a bidet is an effective zero.  (I have one and like it; among other things it dramatically reduces the use of TP, so my one roll of consumption is your three or five rolls!)  Use of a bidet, however, absolutely reduces the amount of feces contact with a toilet user’s hands by a huge factor — probably to 1/100th or less than a user of a toilet without one, since it washes nearly all of the feces off your butthole and into the toilet before you get off the pot.  This dramatically reduces the risk of fecal:oral transmission of any bug at the source and thus should be expected to dramatically reduces infection rates.

  • South Korea controlled their hospital transmission without extreme PPE measures. Their solution?  Militant hand-washing in health care facilities; before entry to and at exit of every room and after contact with any potentially-contaminated person or surface.  That step alone cut the transmission to health care workers to nearly zero.  This was known in March.  We are still seeing crazy-high transmission in health-care workers in the United States, especially in nursing homes and other care facilities (ITC homes for disabled people, etc.) in the United States and we have not instituted said militant hand-washing standards here.
  • Homeless people appeared at first to not get the virus at all.  This made absolutely no sense and I talked about it at the time as a major confounding piece of data; I could not explain the apparent lack of infections.  Subsequently, serology and mass-testing of shelters later proved that in fact damn near all of said people tested were in fact positive for either antibodies or the virus itself, meaning virtually all of them either had it or have had it.  We originally thought they didn’t get it because they didn’t get sick!  But they sure did get the virus — they just didn’t get sick enough from it to require medical attention.  I note that “getting the virus” but not getting sick is good, not bad.  In fact it’s very good not just for you but for everyone around you; provided you get some amount of immunity out of that the benefit to the general public is considerable.  Among said homeless people nearly zero of them have died of Covid-19.

  • Prison populations continue to report extremely high attack rates and yet again post near-zero serious case and fatality rates.  Note that prisons and jails universally have the toilet in the cell and thus fecal/oral contamination via surface contact is going to be extremely easy with no possible way to control it.  We keep seeing huge “bursts” of reported cases in various states which are prisoner test batches that show up all at once — yet what we don’t see are prisoners dropping dead or ending up in the ICU with the bug.  Note that incarcerated individuals are materially more likely than the general population to have lived an extraordinarily unhealthy lifestyle prior to incarceration, including drug and alcohol abuse.  Therefore you would expect them to have much higher mortality statistics from Covid-19 than the general population but this has yet to occur on a systematic basis in the United States.
  • Native Americans appear to have extremely high attack, severe disease and death rates.  Arizona is the poster child for this problem but is by no means alone; they just happen to have entire counties where a huge percentage of the population is Native American due to the presence of large reservation areas within same.  The net-positive test rate among NE Arizona counties in particular is astounding on a comparative basis.
  • Protesters don’t get it either despite ignoring “social distancing” writ large and often or even usually ignoring masks too.  Never mind that if you’re gassed by the cops you cough like a son-of-a-bitch so if you have anything now so does everyone within 20′ of you.  The transmission rate should be much higher than the statistical average for everyone in the state if gathering together in close contact for hours at a time without masks transmitted the bug.  The data says it does not; their positive rate of 1.4% is less than half the index rate (average) of 3.7% in the state of Minnesota.
  • Delaying infection does not prevent it.  Remember that flattening the curve mantra?  That’s delay.  The area under the curve (number of infections) remains the same but is simply spread out over more time.  Now suddenly that people are still getting infected results in screaming when this was not only a known outcome it was the expected outcome.  Has the collective IQ of Americans dropped below their shoe size?  It appears the answer is a resounding YES!

Note that exactly nobody pressing the racissssssss! screaming is accounting for any of this.  Until and unless we cut the crap with that intentional suppression of logical analysis we shall never get to the facts.  There are very important epidemiological facts in this data and in fact there are likely pathways to suppression of severe outcomes from Covid-19 to below the nuisance level found therein.

Exactly where they lead and how you get there isn’t yet known but a number of hypothesis are all reasonable given this set of facts and if we are going to actually make progress with this or any other disease we must look at said facts dispassionately, especially where you have high attack rates in what you would expect are seriously-compromised and high-risk population segments and yet those cases occur with few to nearly-zero severe or fatal outcomes.

Remember that HIV was treated in exactly the same sort of “social justice” fashion and we shoved a half-million Americans in the hole as a result.  Almost-certainly at least half of those people did not need to and should not have died.  They died because we refused to analyze the data we had and go where it led us, instead “protecting” those who claimed that butt****ing was not only a civil right but also that nothing which called into question the dangers of doing so was to be admitted into public discussion and debate.

Ok, so what hypothesis can we form?

  • Attack rate is highly-correlated with housing density in a given unit of housing.  That we now know and it explains the higher black attack rate, the higher meat-packing employee attack rate, the higher nursing/LTC home attack rate, the higher reservation attack rate and the higher homeless shelter attack rate.  It also explains the higher attack rate in places such as Wuhan China even though I believe exactly zero of what was reported out of the Chinese without hard, independent proof.  All those populations have much higher housing densities than the average white American household.
  • Adding a bidet that goes on a toilet at the mounting point for the seat costs about $50.  Adding one to every American home and apartment could have been done for a billion dollars, roughly, and likely would have cut transmission rates by a monstrous amount at less than a thousandth of the cost of the economic damage we have incurred.
  • The lack of indoor plumbing and sanitation massively correlates with attack rate.  Witness the NE corner of Arizona; many reservation dwellings have no septic system or running water.  How do you wash your hands with soap and water without running water?  How do you remove feces from your hands after defecating?
  • Close contact, with or without masks and even in large groups where you are in such a group for hours at a time, but where personal hand-to-hand or hand-to-object-to-hand contact does not occur does not, statistically, appear to transmit the virus as the correlation with the protests is inverted.  This is not a singular event either; remember that despite tens or even hundreds of thousands of spring break revelers partying in Florida in March the total number of cases traced to same numbered five.  Remember that while correlation does not prove causation the lack of correlation reliably excludes a causal relationship.  So much for continuing to ban large groups (e.g. sports fans, political rallies, etc.), limiting capacity in theme parks, restaurants, bars, etc. — and requiring masks for the general public in any circumstance.
  • At the same time the places where groups of cases have occurred all correlate with the potential for fecal:oral spread.  There is a just-reported set of cases linked to a Jacksonville bar in Florida.  How is their hand-washing protocol in that place?  It just takes one bartender who used the bathroom, didn’t wash his or her hands, and then handled all the glasses served to those individuals while filling them.  The same is true for the communal transmission reported earlier among a family that had a large gathering where shared dishes were served and at the church in South Korea with a symptomatic individual which practiced close, personal hand-based contact.  At the same time groups of hundreds of thousands “protesting” in close proximity, in fact at “personal contact” distance for hours at a time don’t get it.  This is very solid evidence that it is manual transmission via the hands, likely fecal:oral — and not airborne — that is occurring.  In short: WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS AND NO, HAND SANITIZER IS NOT AN ADEQUATE REPLACEMENT.
  • Severity of outcome is very highly correlated with (1) obesity, (2) diabetes, and (3) the use of ACE/ARB modulating pharmaceuticals to control various morbidity factors.  The latter was attempted to be “disproved” by a now-withdrawn study that was shown to have possibly-intentionally corrupted data.  Note that among homeless people you have a lack of all three yet you also have rampant alcoholism, which one would expect to lead to very severe compromise and bad outcomes — but the data says it doesn’t.  Native Americans are also notorious for severe alcohol abuse which would lead one to believe there’s a correlation there but the extremely high prevalence of same among homeless people who have almost zero severe Covid outcomes argues strongly against that being a co-factor in severity of result.
  • Age is not, standing alone, a material mortality factor in this disease.  New York’s death data proves this; there is no specific correlation with age to death rate.  A shockingly-low number of New Yorkers of seriously advanced age without any of the listed morbidity factors have died.  It’s not being old that gets you — it’s being unhealthy in specific, discernable ways.

  • Attack rate is very highly correlated with the likelihood of fecal/oral transmission vectors being in play.  Nursing homes have an extraordinary prevalence of incontinent individuals in them and avoiding cross-contamination when someone has a diaper on is extremely difficult.  The more people in a given housing unit the harder this is to control as well, and the presence of high-pressure institutional style toilets radically raises the risk of expulsion of fecal matter onto both surfaces and into the air.  Lids do not stop the former, in fact they concentrate it.  We knew this was likely at-issue early on in that protocols in Asian hospitals were changed very quickly to require assiduous hand-washing routines and as soon as that was implemented cross-transmission to and between health care workers went to an effective zero, even without masks!  This also explains how Japan was able to control their outbreak without shutting the economy down — most of their private homes have bidets which dramatically reduce the risk of fecal/oral transmission in private homes by materially reducing the amount of feces a person’s hands can come into contact with.
  • There are no long-term care or nursing home facilities and damn few hospital beds or units that can, today, in their present configurations, control for the transmission risk of a highly-mobile fecal/oral bug, especially if the focus remains on “masks and gloves” instead of the manual removal of potential contamination from one’s hands after any and all contact with any item or person that might be contaminated.  Again, we knew this in MARCH and have completely ignored it.  The willful and intentional failure to address this protocol is negligent homicide by the tens of thousands of counts.  There is not one governor nor health director in any of the 50 states who has addressed this fact nor have any been held accountable.
  • The fact that homeless people get this virus on a nearly-universal basis yet almost none of them get seriously ill or die of it is extremely powerful data.  In fact, within that, plus the prison population and meat-packing house data, is likely a key to exactly why, statistically, people get severe cases of this bug rather than benign ones and ultimately expire from it.  This is especially true when one considers that both prisoners and homeless people have a much-higher than general population prevalence of seriously-unhealthy behaviors including most-specifically alcoholism and serious drug abuse, both of which are severely immunosuppressive.

Through all of this we can find truth — if we care to.

We don’t care to.

We won’t hold NY accountable, for example, for obvious intentional medical homicide in that they have one quarter of the deaths in America from Covid-19 but only six percent of the population of the country.  That’s a 400% over-representation and is flat-out outrageous.  We know, for example, the state forced Covid+ persons into nursing homes; that’s not an accident, it’s intentional.  And there are allegations that NY intentionally left potentially or known-Covid+ patients outside of isolated areas in hospitals. Britain, by the way, has admitted that 20% of their infections were nosocomial — given to people by the hospital.  What’s our percentage and why isn’t that reported?  Exactly zero of those infections and deaths are acceptable nor can they be charged to the “virulence” of the virus; by definition those are medical incompetence at best and manslaughter at worst.

There is in fact a pretty-clean argument to be made that bolting the door of every hospital instead of admitting potential Covid suffers might well have resulted in less death!  Think about that for a minute: There is a clean argument to be made that our medical system resulted in a net positive change in the death rate from this virus; we would have been better off in terms of dead bodies to tell people to go pound sand and tough it out at home!

We have not, several months in, stopped transmission in and through nursing homes and other long-term and intermediate care facilities.  Every single state still has a problem in this regard.  The number of transmissions in and between nursing home (and other residential care facility) residents and staff at this point should be a statistical zero yet it is not in any state.  This is hard evidence that the overhwelming focus on mask-based PPE is and will remain ineffective.  Anywhere from a third to a half of all who have died of this bug were in such homes yet an effective zero of them could have contracted the virus in the community at-large since they don’t leave said homes and, since the lockdowns in said places started months ago haven’t been close enough to others to get the virus via personal contact with other residents; their care-givers had to be either direct or indirect vectors!

We won’t take the data we have, which is that handwashing is a massive deterrent to transmission while masks out in public do little or nothing and, rather than demand “masks” in public places instead put hand-washing stations, with soap and water, outside businesses and public buildings and become absolute “nazi-like” when it comes to handwashing where personal service from one-to-many is common such as restaurant and bar staff.  We also won’t do the same thing in hospitals and other care facilities.  Yet we know masks (especially when not worn properly and in combination with excellent hand hygiene, which the general public does not practice) are not a barrier to transmission but hand-washing is, and we knew this in March after a South Korean hospital stopped transmission to their staff, even when not masked, by mandating manual handwashing with soap and water before entry and exit to every patient room and after contact with any potentially-contaminated surface.  Prior that they had a huge problem despite the use of PPE, yet upon instituting that protocol their staff transmission dropped to a statistical zero.

We have a second, confirmatory data point on fecal/oral transmission from Japan which controlled their outbreak without material lockdowns of any sort and has a very high prevalence of bidet presence in private homes (~75%.)  The use of a bidet removes virtually all feces from your butthole and thus reduces by an enormous factor the potential viral transmission load from one person to another via that route.  Given the essentially “kissing” level of contact found on Japanese mass-transit (rendering a mask useless) and the same level of personal contact found in many of the recent “protests” this is further evidence that the primary means of community spread is manual, not droplet-aerosol based.  Note that South Korea, where bidets are also common, confirms this.

And finally, also adding a lot of weight to the fecal/oral transmission route as being primary, we have data from the protests now coming in that large groups congregating for hours at a time in close contact, but generally not exchanging hand-to-hand or hand-object-hand contact, does not result in transmission occurring irrespective of masks.

We have a lot of data, at this point, that strongly points to why some people get very sick, some people get nothing, and why some people get exposed but never build antibodies.  Specifically, there is also obvious cross-immunity to this bug but we don’t know what it sources from.  That is the only logical reason why someone who is exposed and gets the bug, as proved by PCR test, would not develop an antibody response; the only way your body eliminates a virus is through antibody response, so if you don’t build specific antibodies the only other rational explanation is that you have cross-resistance.

We have a medical system, in short, that is hell-bent and determined to find ways to make money off this disease rather than focusing on how to make people not die and we have a media that is complicit in lying about the facts and points of correlation (which suggest but do not prove causation) and the places where correlation is expected under their hypothesis but is absent, which unlike correlation does in nearly every instance DISPROVE the suspected causal factor.

Again: Correlation does not prove causation but lack of correlation DOES, in nearly every case, DISPROVE causation.  This is one of the first things you learn about in regard to statistical analysis; that which does not correlate should not be, absent hard, scientific proof, viewed as a potential causal factor.

Exactly as with HIV/AIDS they have adopted a model that increases the number of people shoveled into the hole so more money is made instead of figuring out how, at zero or very little cost, to contain and prevent transmission and under what circumstances people get it and have a severe or fatal outcome as opposed to a minor inconvenience as is the case with a common cold.

The evidence strongly suggests that the reason for the difference in outcome is both a function of cross-immunity and may, to a large degree, rest in both personal choice linked co-morbidities and commonly-prescribed and used medical interventions that are “believed to be safe” but in fact seriously potentiate infections with this virus.  The latter is strongly suggested by the data — not proved, mind you, but very strongly suggested and in addition the modality of that threat matches up exactly with what we know about how this virus attacks the body.  Instead of running that to the ground as a public priority we instead had a study run with contaminated data that tried to discredit that which implies that scienter exists among the pharmaceutical and medical industries!  In other words, the evidence suggests they know damn well those drugs are killing people in the context of this bug and tried to cover it up.  That this didn’t trigger an immediate investigation at all levels of the government and regulatory apparatus is an outrage.

I’ve been reporting on this since February, I nailed this vector as likely at the root of transmission in February and I’ve yet to see a single bit of evidence that the hypotheses that I have put forward on same, backed by the data as available at the time, has been wrong.  Then again actually resolving the issue neither makes anyone rich nor does it give you a convenient political sword to run your opponents through with, does it?

Wake up America.

They are going for all the marbles

Antifa is the new Ku Klux Klan, the terrorist arm of the Democrat party.  Back in the day the Klan wore white and terrorized Blacks, today Antifa wears black and terrorizes Whites.  They are an international cadre of well organized, well trained and well funded terrorists whose goal is the utter destruction of America and, ultimately, Western Civilization.  They claim to oppose Fascism, but in fact they are Communists.  They intend to impose on us a dictatorship which sounds much like what Pol Pot imposed on the poor Cambodian people.  Antifa, and their masters and allies, are Communist revolutionaries and their intent is nothing less than to have a successful Communist Revolution in the USA.

Now that so many Progressive Mayors and Governors are either antagonizing their police forces or standing them down “peaceful” protesters will get the message that the rules regarding moral and ethical behavior are relaxed there will be no consequences for bad behavior the situation will only get worse.  Suddenly the never ending push to disarm the citizenry makes more sense.  With the police largely out of the picture the ordinary citizen is forced to fall back on his own resources which would have been, ideally for the revolutionaries, none.  Fortunately that initiative failed, and failed spectacularly.  Immaculate Barry, whose eight year reign was scandal free (in a pig’s eye!), turned out to be the greatest gun salesman that ever lived.

Despite the setbacks the revolutionaries’ plans advance in accord with the script so often used before.  Neon Revolt makes the connection:

We’re now in the midst of a full-blown Soros-backed Color Revolution in America.

What do I mean by that?

Well, for those unfamiliar, Soros has been in the business of disrupting governments and nations for some time now. There have been a number of color revolutions around the world, and many of them have been both directly and indirectly funded by George Soros – which means, they’ve been funded by taxpayer dollars.

Franklin Foer is a Progressive and much approves of these measures.  Even so, being a closet Marxist at heart he has to lie.of The Atlantic does the analysis for us:

What the United States is witnessing is less like the chaos of 1968, which further divided a nation, and more like the nonviolent movements that earned broad societal support in places such as Serbia, Ukraine, and Tunisia, and swept away the dictatorial likes of Milošević, Yanukovych, and Ben Ali.

And although Trump’s time in office will end with an election and not an ouster, it is only possible to grasp the magnitude of what we’re seeing and to map what comes next by looking to these antecedents from abroad.

As in the case of many such revolutions, two battles are being waged in America. One is a long struggle against a brutal and repressive ideology. The other is a narrower fight over the fate of a particular leader. The president rose to power by inflaming racial tensions. He now finds his own fate enmeshed in the struggle against police brutality and racism.

The most important theorist of nonviolent revolutions is the late political scientist Gene Sharp. A conscientious objector during the Korean War who spent nine months in prison, Sharp became a close student of Mahatma Gandhi’s struggles. His work set out to extract the lessons of the Indian revolt against the British. He wanted to understand the weaknesses of authoritarian regimes—and how nonviolent movements could exploit them. Sharp distilled what he learned into a 93-page handbook, From Dictatorship to Democracy, a how-to guide for toppling autocracy.

Sharp’s foundational insight is embedded in an aphorism: “Obedience is at the heart of political power.” A dictator doesn’t maintain power on his own; he relies on individuals and institutions to carry out his orders. A successful democratic revolution prods these enablers to stop obeying. It makes them ashamed of their complicity and fearful of the social and economic costs of continued collaboration.

Sharp posited that revolutionaries should focus first on the regime’s softest underbelly: the media, the business elites, and the police. The allegiance of individuals in the outer circle of power is thin and rooted in fear. By standing strong in the face of armed suppression, protesters can supply examples of courage that inspire functionaries to stop carrying out orders, or as Sharp put it, to “withhold cooperation.” Each instance of resistance provides the model for further resistance. As the isolation of the dictators grows—as the inner circles of power join the outer circle in withholding cooperation—the regime crumbles.

This is essentially what transpired in Ukraine in 2014. When the country’s president backed away from plans to join the European Union, a crowd amassed in Kyiv’s central square, the Maidan. The throngs initially had no avowed intention or realistic hope of overthrowing the kleptocratic president, Viktor Yanukovych. But instead of letting the demonstrators shout themselves hoarse in the thick of subfreezing winter, Yanukovych set about violently confronting them. This tactic backfired horribly. A movement with limited aims became a full-blown revolution.

 Vox Day of Vox Popoli notes, “Essentially… there is the key tell that assures us the writer knows he is misleading his readers. The Maidan protesters were not “violently confronted” by the Yanukovych regime, they were murdered by mercenaries in the employ of the people who were pulling their strings, the very same people who are now pulling the strings of BLM and Antifa in the USA’s own would-be color revolution.”

In recent days we have seen a number of General officers condemning Trump’s decisions and his suggestion that he might use martial law to bring the riots under control.  This is part of the attempt to peel his support away.  One unacquainted with history, especially recent history, might find this dismaying.  In fact Presidents have on several occasions in the history of the nation, including George Washington himself, used the army for internal policing in times of crisis.  I also recall that all these generals are what was left after Obama got done purging the officer corps, supporters we now know, of the deep state.  Retired generals can say what they please, they are now civilians, active duty officers who set themselves at odds with the Commander in Chief are mutineers by definition.  Either salute and soldier, soldier, or resign.  Meanwhile the Secretary of Defense has sent the active duty Army troops home from and disarmed the National Guard in Washington DC.

The question can be very legitimately asked, why isn’t POTUS taking action against these people and getting them out of the way where they do no harm?  It is my opinion that he has known who most of these traitors and mutineers are and he is giving them rope with which to hang themselves.

The cabal bent on bringing America down knows that it must defeat Trump or face imprisonment and the death of their dreams of power in the Glorious World of Next Tuesday, also known as the New Socialist World Order.  But more importantly he knows that if he simply acted against these people he would be accused of acting on a demented McCarthyist conspiracy theory.  In order to be successful in draining the Deep State he needs We the People to see for ourselves that what we are facing is a conspiracy fact.  We the People need to see the threat and be willing to stand against it.  He is exposing it so that no one can ever again say it was a conspiracy theory.  Only then can he have the backing of the majority of the People to defeat and destroy it.

The reason Intel agencies never saw the 5th column building up is it happened gradually in universities, in activist groups. Its presence became accepted and normal. Nobody took the march through the institutions seriously, even now.

The only resistance to the creeping radical project was grassroots opposition. It took the form of bloggers, alternative media and ‘populism’ outside the captured institutions. The radicals saw this inchoate enemy forming and called it ‘hate’ or the Deplorables.

The pandemic and the economy destroying response to it fortuitously created what they call in the trade a “revolutionary” condition. All that was needed was a spark. Seize the day. Seize the hour as Mao said.

What we have is a meeting engagement between the Gramscians vs the Minutemen. The radicals have lost their principal advantage, stealth.

Now that the Gramscian u-boat is on the surface the Minutemen should keep them there, spewing ridiculous statements, painting walls etc. They should take the initiative in ordinary life, going outside their precious institutions, in asymmetrical fashion.

“We must act as if the we — our homes, families, work and beliefs — were a fact. We defeat the Gramscian Empire by ignoring it”.

The United States was born in civil disobedience, and will be reborn in civil disobedience to the Progressive lunatics that think they have a divine right to rule us.

As the America writhes under the assault of her enemies it is too easy for We the People to be taken in by the stratagems of our foes and allow ourselves to become divided, fearful, enraged and so lose our own peace and courage. We can easily lose the beautiful vision of and commitment to our unique and precious Constitutional Republic.  They want to pit us against one another, they have been working towards a race war in America for many years.  They want us so terrorized that we will do anything to set the terrors at bay, up to and including national suicide.  They want us seeing red so that we strike out blindly against our fellow Americans and so lose our moral integrity.

They are skilled manipulators and we must under no circumstances allow ourselves to fall into their trap.  They depend on manipulating us into making tactical mistakes that they can exploit for their eventual triumph and our eventual downfall.  In recent articles here, here, here, here, here and here I have broadly outlined the strategic and tactical doctrine of our enemies.  Breitbart has a nice summation here.  Having failed in the several attempted coups since 2016 they now employ Antifa as shock troops to force a Communist Revolution on us.  They are failing, but they are still dangerous.  There is more to come, at times there will be hard and heavy tidings and we must not allow ourselves to be dismayed or discouraged.

I feel a mighty counterrevolution coming on!

 

Antifa riots have nothing to do with George Floyd’s death

George Floyd was a prop in an outrage play.  Oh, he’s (probably) dead, and the actions of the police were despicable, no question.  Just as the mediaevals presented morality plays to inculcate virtue in the population, just so does the radical left present outrage plays to foment rage, violence and division which it can then exploit for political advantage.  Given the many unanswered questions surrounding Mr. Floyd’s apprehension and subsequent death and the egregiously over the top actions of the officers on scene it is almost impossible to believe that the entire event was anything other than carefully cast and scripted beforehand.  They jumped the shark.

We have come to understand that despite the very legitimate anger among those who take the unfortunate event at face value the subsequent violence has been equally carefully cast and scripted.  Someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to set the scene.  Pallets of bricks miraculously appear in areas in which no construction is taking place but a riot soon does.  A peaceful protest is announced, a crowd of demonstrators is brought together and riled up by leaders with megaphones.  Antifa members who are almost entirely white initiate violence in the form of property crimes.

UPDATE: We now know that Antifa had been planning these actions for months, all they needed was a spark.

Aaaaaand we’re off to the races riots followed by undocumented shoppers helping themselves to whatever they can grab.  Various buildings put to the torch to provide the proper ambiance for subsequent TV propaganda presentations and marshmallow roasts.  A good time is had by all except the business owners and the individual casualties.  Survival safety tip: stay away from crowds.

As a point of interest, these events are organized with a view to categorizing the participants in three classes: Green, Yellow and Red.  The most numerous group are the Greens.  These are the people who have an interest in the catalyzing issue who want to express their views publicly and those who just want to see what’s going on and be part of an event.  These are the people who can be counted on to march, carry signs and chant the slogans provided for them.  Most of them will scatter when violence erupts, some will infected by the madness of crowds and join in the fighting/looting.  Some of these people can be turned into Yellows.

The Yellows are people who have a deeper commitment to the issue in question.  They are motivated by some kind of principle, whether political, social or religious and are therefore more disciplined and more resistant to the forces authority.  These are the people who will chain themselves to trees, sit down and refuse to move, lead chants and be carried off into custody.  These are not very numerous, but they form the core of any sustained protest movement.  Yellows form the ostensible core of these movements, but not all Yellows are in leadership positions.  The demonstrators who were gassed outside the White House when asked to move are these kinds of people.  Some of these people can be turned into Reds.

The Reds are relatively few, but are the most problematic.  These are the people, almost exclusively men, who initiate violence.  If there is a counter demonstration these will mingle with the other side, throw some punches the run back and mingle with the mass of Greens and Yellows.  These are the guys who will start breaking windows and beating any opposition using the mass of Greens and Yellows as cover.  Their job is create chaos by insuring that the demonstration does not remain peaceful.  Once violence is initiated emotions surge across the board and a mob mentality is formed. The Yellows harden their resistance and the Greens react with panic or rage, intensifying the chaos.  They provide the pretext for the propaganda partners to demonize the opposition.

Most dangerous are the organizers who never appear at the demonstrations at all.  They are behind the scenes organizing their soldiers for action and arranging for logistical support from piles of bricks to bail for those arrested.  It is important to inflict as much pain as possible on the opposition by, among other things, providing the bricks but arranging for favorable coverage from their allies in the media.  They also deflect the consequences of their actions from their supporters by providing transportation, instruction sheets, bail money and ordering police stand downs, thereby earning their loyalty.  Sometimes the behind the scenes organizers are actual politicians, sometimes the politicians are their tacit co-conspirators, sometimes their unwitting pawns.

At the strategic level these riot events have nothing to do with racism; the mostly false charge of racism is merely a tool to gain the moral high ground and thereby disqualify and silence any opposition.  The larger goals are apparently two.  First, to politically block Trump’s reelection by turning the electorate against him, or failing that, to cripple his administration at the outset of his second term.  Second, and as an extension of the first, bring about a crisis that can be leveraged into a total abrogation of the Constitution and the establishment of a totalitarian Socialist government.

It appears that by and large America is not taking the bait.  Americans can now clearly see that these violent demonstrations are not spontaneous, organic manifestations of the body politic, no matter how the media spins it.  In all likelihood this particular stratagem to undermine President Trump has failed, though it probably has a little way to go before it burns itself out.  Not to worry, there is no question that they have more mischief waiting in the wings, and we won’t like it.  But whatever it is, we will defeat it too.

In Yucaipa, CA where there was not a cop in sight when Antifa showed up, We the People took action. Language warning.
