Good morning, kids. Tuesday, and as the Ukraine situation settles into a kind of stasis, the human suffering of innocent civilians notwithstanding, there are some alarming reports coming out of China’s largest, and arguably most important city, Shanghai. 24 million people have been completely locked down and there are reports of civil unrest due to lack of food, and dare I say it, freedom.
Desperate Shanghai residents who are under strict lockdown over a [Chinese] COVID-19 outbreak are protesting food shortages, chanting “we want supplies” from their apartments, video shows.
Footage posted to Twitter showed people in the locked-down city banging pots on their balconies to decry a lack of food and other items, France24 reported.
“We want supplies,” the quarantined residents reportedly chanted.
In another video posted to the Chinese social media platform Weibo, a drone appears to warn the residents to cease protesting.
“Please comply with [Chinese] COVID restrictions. Control your soul’s desire for freedom. Do not open the window or sing,” the message from the drone said.
Other footage in recent days has shown residents struggling with security personnel and hazmat-suited medical staff at some compounds, with occupants shouting that they needed food supplies. . .
. . . Nearly all of Shanghai’s 26 million residents have been confined at home since last week, as the city aims to test, trace and centrally quarantine all people who test positive for the virus amid the spread of the highly infectious Omicron variant.
Color me highly suspicious about this. We are in an endemic phase with the General Tso’s Sickness and probably have been for about a year already. The most vulnerable to it and any respiratory infection are the elderly and those with comorbidities. Cheap, proven therapeutics if prescribed early on can knock this out quickly. Even in China, the place that spawned this nasty little Franken-virus with assistance from our own Anthony Fauci. So what’s really going on there?
Despite the Chi-Com’s absolute control of media and messaging, we do know that the Chinese economy is on a massive bubble that can burst at any time. It’s one-child policy is leading to demographic disaster, and the prosperity and exposure to western culture that the seeds of a little bit of government-controlled capitalism planted over 30 years ago by Deng Xiao Ping have born fruit in Chinese youth. That is running contra to the totalitarian dreams of Xi Jinping. I don’t think Xi is on the ropes but his desire for absolute power has put him at odds with others in the party, and the clock is ticking. Obviously, a move on Taiwan would be an ideal distraction, but what’s happening in Ukraine might give him pause.
Despite imposing some of the strictest [Chinese] COVID-19 policies, New York, New Jersey, and California had the worst outcomes, according to a new study.
The study, which was conducted by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, charted disparities in health outcomes, economic performance, and education among U.S. states since the start of the pandemic. Researchers found states such as Utah, South Dakota, and Florida that “maximized the individual freedoms of business owners, consumers, workers and parents—and allowed their citizens to make their own risk assessments without government mandates—had the best performance.” By contrast, lockdown states such as New York, New Jersey, California, as well as Washington, D.C., had higher rates of learning loss for children in school, unemployment, and death.
Funny, as in beyond the pale disgusting, how a mass-murderer like Angel of Death Cuomo and others ripped Ron DeSantis, while in reality Florida prospered as New York died – literally and figuratively. Lockdowns and masks do not work and have never worked. But still, they persist as we now see in the City of Brotherly Cream Cheese and Street Violence, but mostly street violence. Philadelphia is reimposing mask mandates. Wearing a mask to stop the transmission of Peking Pox is like erecting a chainlink fence to keep out fleas. But, you do you, Jim Kenney.
And that segues back to DeSantis. From this insanity to the battle for the minds, bodies and souls of our children, DeSantis has had both the right instincts and the balls to tell the Left to fuck itself in the heart with a steak knife.
As the old saying goes, it’s better to be lucky than good, but DeSantis has been both. Practically since he took office, events have broken his way, starting with the unnecessary hysteria over Covid-19 that, in the final analysis, was the thing that destroyed the Trump administration. After briefly flirting with lockdowns, DeSantis reversed course, bit the bullet, ignored media flapdoodle over “cases,” and made Florida the free-state alternative to such draconian fascist entities as New York and California. Florida boomed as its rivals faded, hemorrhaging population and losing economic and political clout while the Sunshine State and also Texas happily welcomed the refugees. . .
. . . DeSantis has been lucky in his enemies as well. Incredibly, the now-“woke” Walt Disney Company—the embodiment of family friendly entertainment since its founding in 1923 through its founder’s death in 1966 and up until recently—has decided that the Florida Parental Rights in Education bill (which DeSantis enthusiastically signed) preventing state teachers from discussing human sexuality, sexual orientation and “gender identity” with children in kindergarten through third grade is the hill the company wants to die on. . .
. . . With enemies like the company that bought Harvey Weinstein and the mainstream media, DeSantis doesn’t need friends. Meanwhile, the governor has the wind at his back: more than a dozen states are considering similar bills, putting the Florida governor in the de facto driver’s seat on the issue. From Covid to the Chinese suborning of America’s institutions to the sitting daffy duck called Disney, DeSantis has staked out positions in direct opposition to the Biden Democrats—exactly what you’d expect from a Shadow President who’s looking forward, not backward.
That is from friend of the blog and friend Michael Walsh, who as you know, is endorsing DeSantis for ’24. While the salient point about Trump, should he run and win would be 78, is not necessarily a disqualifier, what the heck is he thinking endorsing Mehmet Oz, an Oprah protegé who has had a checkered history on issues (he was at one point in favor of gun control). That said, others in Trump’s coterie have endorsed Oz while a similar group have endorsed David McCormack. This is getting into the weeds. Look, if Trump does get the nod, I will eagerly crawl naked over broken glass to vote for him. Exposing the kabuki-bukkake theater of the two-party system and electoral politics, as well as the Deep State leviathan that lords over us is one of the greatest achievements of his and any presidency. But it came at a cost, of course; his presidency and the existential threats we now face. His Achilles heel in trusting the wrong people at the wrong time and not going with his gut when the chips were down – specifically the handling of the initial China virus outbreak – has pretty much sealed the deal for me as well.
In his way, though, Trump paved the way for DeSantis as well as many others running up and down the ballot. Most crucially, in the pits where it really counts at the school and community board level.
So, Putin is bogged down, Xi seems to be getting paranoid, France has a shot (long though it is) at waking the hell up, and the Hungarians have put their foot down, amongst other things. And back over here, people are absolutely sickened and alarmed as perverts seek to turn children into sex objects and then mind-numbed automatons for the all-powerful State.
“‘Margaret Sanger believed in euthanasia and sterilization of ‘unfortunate’ and mentally challenged, and Blacks. She was the founder of Planned Parenthood, which, like all organizations expanded its brief, (originally one of control of sub-humans) in the control of all conception. Her insights were taken up in the 60s with ‘hygiene classes,’ which became ‘sex education,’ educators holding that because perhaps the children were not taught at home, the higher orders needed to take charge, and now we have kindergartens trained in a bizarre catechism of sexual identity politics. . .'”
. . . “You’re putting these bizarre ideas in their head, and as the Jesuits taught us correctly, you give me a kid until he is seven, he is mine for life. . . “
. . . “… We’ve got to take back control, and the best way to do it is through school choice, and that’s why the Democrats oppose it — right?” said Mamet. “Because school choice means I get the right to raise my kids. And, as you say, the Marxists want the state to raise the kids, in fact, they insist upon it.”
That was former leftist turned conservative and award-winning film and theater auteur David Mamet. It is amazing to me how right Rush Limbaugh and Andrew Breitbart were about the “culture war.” Breitbart himself said “politics is downstream of culture.” Even an execrable beast like Al Sharpton understands that these issues are political kryptonite.
It’s gratifying that there is growing disaffection from historically rock solid Democrat voting blocs. It’s disheartening that they – like we – will (in theory) hold their nose and vote Republican, but it’s because they’re voting against the Democrats.
And therein lies the opportunity. A change is in the wind. Can we survive long enough to see it happen?
