Good morning, kids. Wednesday and I just realized something that, frankly, I’m embarrassed I didn’t see right away. Before I get ahead of myself, the set up is that it looks like Cuomo hench-hag Kathy Hochul and bloated Illinois blivit J.B. Sitzpritzker, along with Oregon’s Kate Brown-shirt as well as Pelosi relative Newsom are the latest blue state tyrants to relent (to one degree or another) on mask mandates. It’s obviously a huge political albatross among the ever-expanding lei-wreath of dead and rotting sea bird carcasses around the necks of the Democrat Party as midterm election season starts heating up.
The memo has gone out: It is time for every cultural institution, politician, and corporate media outlet to pivot on [Chinese] COVID-19. They must reverse their Covidstan policies, advocate a return to normal, and make excuses for the missteps of the health bureaucracy. The speed and shamelessness with which the narrative shift happened are breathtaking, and it can only mean one thing. The internal polling for Democrats in the midterms is beyond dismal, and areas assumed to be safely in the “D” column are at risk. We mustn’t let them get away with the rewrite of history they are attempting. . .
. . . Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, California, and Oregon have set timelines to end their indoor mask mandates. Some are ending school mask mandates as well. Just last week, Virginia school districts were fighting Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s executive order allowing parents to choose whether or not their children wear masks. Meanwhile, images of Hochul and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams going maskless in photo ops with masked school children went viral. . .
. . . Not all that long ago, [Mengele fan girl Leana] Wen suggested making the lives of the unvaccinated painful and requiring N-95 masks for children. She has also said vaccines protect well against omicron infection, which is not true. The vaccinated are getting infected in large numbers. Wen credits her change of heart to the wide availability of vaccines. Vaccines have been widely available to people in high-risk groups for over a year.
She also pretends that information on “one-way masking” is new. “Even if other people around you are not wearing masks, if you wear a high-quality mask, that also protects you, the wearer, too.” This revelation is not new information. However, if you had suggested it before this week, Twitter and Facebook may have banned you. Wen saying that government mandates should end and that individuals should determine how to protect themselves best is such an abrupt reversal that she should have whiplash. . .
. . . the Covidstan authoritarians are trying to convince you something has changed. The only word for this is lying. Nothing substantial has changed. Democrats, the health bureaucracy, and the corporate media cannot be allowed to retcon the [Chinese] COVID response over the last two years. We are only beginning to understand the damage to our children and society. The wreckage must be laid directly at their feet.
So, here’s my big lightbulb moment which does not make me the sage of the ages either. As we rub our hands with glee over the fact that the mask mandates seem to be going the way of the dodo, how much you want to bet that yet another variant of General Tso’s Sickness will magically descend upon the land and all those mandates reappear? One can argue they’ll happen just before the elections in key swing districts where ballot harvesting, mail-in voting etc. are in place, or just afterwards if miraculously (wink-wink) the Dems hold on to their majority in one or both chambers as well as in local elections.
Honestly, aside from being sadistically drunk on power for the sake of having it and wielding it, what possible other benefit does prolonging this insanity have? I don’t give them credit for being intelligent, but I do credit them for being smart and devious enough to manipulate and grift themselves into permanent elective office. Is there really an actual plan to use this as a means to collapse society, seize absolute power, ???, profit! Or are these fiends just winging it? They are absolutely correct in their assessment that the people are fed up with this and their rank hypocrisy that’s figuratively and quite literally in your face when they go maskless yet impose masks on you.
Seriously, I am sick to fucking death of these tyrants and you can multiply my anger by orders of magnitude at our alleged fellow citizens who act as their enforcers and vote for them over and over again. And tyrants they are. It may be cold up there in the great white north but our Canadian brothers and sisters have had it up to here (several parallels above 49 figuratively speaking) with what Justin “Castreau” and his minions have done. The premier of Alberta has told the bastard son of Fidel to take his vaccine mandate and shove it. Psaki-Psircling back to tyrants and Castro, vis a vis, Justin, the estimable Lloyd Billingsley gives us a timely recap of his pedigree:
Earlier in his brilliant career, Justin was fond of performing in blackface, singing “The Banana Boat Song,” a hit for Harry Belafonte. Trudeau now considers this racist but the revelation prompted no resignation. So no surprise that Justin Trudeau criticized “racist flags” in the convoy and spoke out over a perceived slight to a war memorial.
During World War II, Justin’s père Pierre Trudeau was a “zombie,” one of those who declined to serve though of age and in good health. After the war, as David Frum recalled in 2011, Pierre Trudeau “traveled to Josef Stalin’s Soviet Union to participate in regime-sponsored propaganda activities. He wrote in praise of Mao’s murderous regime in China. Trudeau lavishly admired Fidel Castro, Julius Nyere, and other Third World dictators.” Trudeau also praised the Siberian city of Norilsk “unware or unconcerned that Norilsk had been built by slave labor.”
Prime Minister Trudeau, “tried to reorient Canada away from the great democratic alliance.” As Frum also notes, hours after the Communist Coup against Solidarity in Poland, Pierre Trudeau said: “If martial law is a way to avoid civil war and Soviet intervention, then I cannot say it is all bad,” adding, “Hopefully the military regime will be able to keep Solidarity from excessive demands. . .
. . .[Fidel] Castro persecuted homosexuals and his regime held large numbers of black political prisoners. Even so, Justin Trudeau called him a “remarkable leader,” who “made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.” And as Trudeau fils said in 2013, “There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China. Their basic dictatorship is actually allowing them to turn their economy around on a dime. . .”
. . . Pierre Trudeau was not a fan of Poland’s Solidarity movement, but he did support the martial law imposed by Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski, correctly identified by Caspar Weinberger as a Soviet general in a Polish uniform. This is what happens when a crypto-Communist zombie becomes prime minister of Canada.
When embattled Canadians take to the streets in a peaceful protest, Justin Trudeau smears them with lies. Ottawa police are now threatening to arrest those bringing fuel and other supplies to the protesting truckers, which is not a crime. This is what happens when Pierre Trudeau’s son becomes prime minister of Canada.
All things considered, and as bad as things are here, it could be a hell of a lot worse, as it is in Austria, Australia and in Canada. At least there, people are taking mass action. And although it’s a really good sign that the government of Alberta is standing with the truckers in no uncertain terms, at this point, it’s a Mexican standoff in Canada. For sure, the junta in DC is paying attention. What lesson it draws, in terms of compromise and reconciliation, or pressing the jackboot down even harder on our throat, is TBD. My gut tells me, it’s the latter.
