Incredible Shrinking Vaccine Effectiveness

Lord Fauci has assured us that the vaccines are effective. But effectiveness means something less impressive with every passing day:

Now Fauci says having to keep taking shots has nothing to do with effectiveness.

Clearly no one has had a clue regarding even the medium-term effects of the vaccine. Why on earth would anyone risk giving it to children, who are not significantly affected by the ChiCom virus anyway?

Yet Big Government’s policy is that everyone must get the jab or else. In liberal California, this already means even kids.

Leftists Extend the Covid Crisis

If our ruling class were responsible, sensible, and honest, it would admit that the Covid pandemic is over. The ChiCom virus is now endemic. People should be advised to take commonsense precautions but get on with their lives. However, our rulers are anything but responsible, sensible, or honest. They don’t like to let a crisis go to waste, as Obamunist Rahm Emanuel noted, because a crisis is “an opportunity to do things … you could not do before.” That’s why leftists are extending the crisis for as long as possible.

Yale University’s Nicholas Christakis proclaims that we are only at the “end of the beginning” of Covid hysteria and the tyranny it enables. He says the crisis can be milked by authoritarians until at least 2024:

Australia would not be investing in Covid concentration camps if they were willing to let this go any time soon.

Speaking of Australia, Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant is the Tony Fauci of New South Wales. She has forbidden Australians from speaking to each other and does not intend for their lives ever to go back to normal. Now she proclaims that her subjects may be forced to wear obedience muzzles in the name of Covid for years:

In the absence of sufficient pushback, there is no reason for our rulers not to keep this up indefinitely — or at least until the ChiComs leak the next engineered virus.

Gadsden Flag Flying High

The crisis Southwest Airlines inflicted on itself by attempting to impose Biden’s vaccine mandate on patriotic pilots was absurdly chalked up to weather and air traffic control problems that mysteriously did not affect other airlines. The liberal establishment media has helpfully tried to prop up this lame story, spinning the understanding that pilots walked out rather than submit to senseless tyranny as disinformation disseminated by “right-wing figures.” Newsweek squeaks that it “cannot authenticate details” regarding the image below, which they must have tried and failed to debunk. It features a flag associated with patriotism and resistance to tyranny (and also, as Newsweek chides, “far-right and extremist demonstrations”):

It does appear to be a Southwest jet though. Kudos to the patriotic pilot.

Maybe Newsweek journalists will have better luck debunking this:

This story also awaits a fact check from Newsweek:

Alternative Means to Make You Take Vaccines

Whether or not you need it, whether or not it is good for your health, whether or not anyone understands the long-term effects, our rulers have decided that everyone must take the vaccine. If firing those who won’t submit doesn’t work, there are other ways to achieve full compliance.

Vaccines might be given through food:

UC Riverside scientists are studying whether they can turn edible plants like lettuce into mRNA vaccine factories. …

The project’s goals, made possible by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, are threefold: showing that DNA containing the mRNA vaccines can be successfully delivered into the part of plant cells where it will replicate, demonstrating the plants can produce enough mRNA to rival a traditional shot, and finally, determining the right dosage.

They are testing the approach in lettuce and spinach. In Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, they get you when you sleep. In real life, it may turn out that they get you when you eat.

Another possibility is deliberately engineered viruses that are cures for other manmade viruses like Covid. From Nature:

We are now poised to begin developing self-disseminating vaccines targeting a wide range of human pathogens, but important decisions remain about how they can be most effectively designed and used to target pathogens with a high risk of spillover and/or emergence.

As Jarrad Winter remarks,

Essentially, what we are talking about is engineered viruses that supposedly spread like viruses but deliver “cures” instead of disease. If this insanity becomes reality, the overlords won’t have to mandate a damn thing. They will simply release some biological monstrosity that reprograms your body however they see fit.

Why stop at Covid vaccines? Once the left-wing social engineers who rule over us have established that they can make us take any drug they want, the sky is the limit.

To think people used to worry about fluoride in the drinking water. Soon we will have real problems.

Southwest Airlines Pilot Pushback Against Covid Tyranny

Covid tyranny may have encountered major pushback at Southwest Airlines. From AP, via Breitbart:

Southwest Airlines canceled hundreds more flights Monday following a weekend of major service disruptions.

By late morning Monday, Southwest had canceled about 365 flights — 10% of its schedule for the day — and more than 600 others were delayed.

Between Saturday and Sunday, 1,900 fights were canceled. Southwest blamed this on air traffic control issues and bad weather. As for the real reason:

The widespread disruptions began shortly after the union for its pilots asked a federal court to block the airline’s order that all employees get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Looks like this is a sickout by pilots, although the union won’t say so.

The White House has pushed airlines to adopt vaccine mandates because they get paid under federal contracts, making them subject to President Joe Biden’s order that federal contractors require vaccination among employees.

Since we can’t count on the media to dig deeper into stories that don’t reflect well on Democrats, we pick up clues as to what is going on wherever we can. This has been floating around the Internet, allegedly written by someone in the airline industry:

I asked one of the pilots about it. The answer I got was (paraphrasing):

80% of our pilots are ex-military. We see the tyranny that’s happening. They’re coming for essential workers first (nurses, doctors, firefighters, police, military, teachers and transportation workers) and they’re coming for the rest of America next. We’re not doing it for us, we’re doing it for America. We swore to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic

The treasonous Biden Administration clearly qualifies as a domestic enemy.

High School Goes Into Lockdown Over Maskless Student

As noted earlier, Covid is not a serious threat to kids, but Covid hysteria very much is. The leftists who control schools have taken it to such an extreme that a student showing up at school without a mask is responded to the same way as an active shooter — even in Wyoming:

Grace Smith, a junior at Laramie High School, in Wyoming, has been involved with a legal battle with her high school over its mask mandate this week, and the district responded this week by locking down the entire school for an hour and a half while cuffing and arresting her. …

Smith believes that the Wyoming State Constitution protects her right to make her own medical decisions, and thus prohibits mask mandates.

Covid policy has much more to do with attacking constitutionally protected liberties than it does with public health.

Miss Smith explains why she will not smother herself with a Covid obedience muzzle:

“It’s because I’m growing up in a country where I’m supposed to have my God-given rights to protect, and they’re being taken away. Everybody has the freedom to wear a mask if they choose, but I believe everybody also has the right to not wear a mask if they choose.”

That goes triple for vaccines, the long-term side effects of which are unknown. However, Democrat-dominated California has already announced plans to require students to be vaccinated — right down to kindergarten.

Covid Hysteria Causes Epidemic of Pediatric Mental Illness

We knew from early on that Covid is no more of a risk to kids than the flu. In contrast, Covid hysteria has been devastating for them. It has produced an epidemic of mental illness that could dwarf Covid in terms of long-term impact:

• Schools around the country are reporting an increase in student violence, some targeting teachers.

• Educators told Insider it’s likely linked to mental health issues that worsened over the pandemic.

• One counselor said students are showing symptoms of PTSD with depression rates “through the roof.”

Doom and gloom propaganda, senseless restrictions, social isolation, and dehumanizing, suffocating masks have consequences for vulnerable children:

“The number of suicide threats in my own school has skyrocketed since COVID,” Amy Riley, a school counselor at Mercer County Intermediate School in Kentucky, told state lawmakers on Tuesday. “Just this morning, I had to do a suicide risk assessment on a 9-year-old in my school before I came to this hearing today.”

Riley told Insider that she’s assessed 26 students ages eight through 10 for suicide risk since May, many of whom were then hospitalized or enrolled in therapy.

Before the pandemic, she said she would only have one or two suicide assessments a month. Now she sees two or three students every day.

Regarding the outbursts of violence from students, being forced to wear Covid obedience muzzles has had a similar effect on airline passengers — providing the Biden Administration with yet another pretext for authoritarianism.

Wait until they start inflicting unnecessary and insufficiently tested Covid vaccines on kids — as in California. Then the real damage to children may begin.

Australian Covid Concentration Camps

Having been down this road in Russia under Lenin and then Germany under Hitler, we already knew what would come next in Australia: concentration camps:

The first glimpse of what the 1,000-bed quarantine facility at Wellcamp Airport outside Toowoomba will look like has been revealed.

The facility is expected to take 500 inmates by the end of the year and the full 1,000 by the end of March.

Another 1,000-bed quarantine facility is being built in Queensland by the Commonwealth government on a 30-hectare Army barracks site in the industrial area of Pinkenba, near Brisbane Airport.

They might construct a whole gulag archipelago. Why not? Taxpayers have plenty of money.

At this stage, the [Toowoomba camp] will be used by domestic travellers returning from COVID hotspots.

Why anyone who had left Australia would come back again is unclear. It is possibly the most repressive country in the world regarding Covid tyranny.

Rule by the Cognitively Challenged

The figurehead for our progressive ruling class explains why we should celebrate vast numbers of Americans losing their jobs for not agreeing to a vaccination they do not want, often because there is no reason for them to risk it since they already have natural immunity:

That’s how to get everyone vaccinated. Erase the unvaccinated.

Agreed, Biden really is this stupid, and probably was even before dementia took hold. But are his handlers? If not, they think we are.

Covid Tyranny Nursery Rhyme

At least one remnant of American culture will survive moonbat rule. The children’s song “The Farmer in the Dell” will not be canceled, having been repurposed so as to instill neurotic fear in small children and brainwash them into believing that unhealthy Covid obedience muzzles will keep them safe:

Get your kids out of public education immediately, or they may be reduced to submissive zombies who will vote for Democrats.

Covid Tyranny Quote of the Day

If the people of Victoria ever acquire the sense to throw Premier Daniel Andrews of the Labor Party out of office, Biden’s handlers ought to hire him to write the script for Creepy Joe’s teleprompter. This line sums up Democrats’ arrogant and tyrannical oligarchical collectivist attitude perfectly:

“I’m not taking lectures on freedom from people who will hold all of us back.”

This begs the question, hold all of us back from what? It isn’t zero Covid, because they know that isn’t going to happen. What progressives are after is zero liberty.

Ted Lieu Gets a Clue as Vax Mandate Extended to Spouses

It isn’t enough to require hospital workers to take a vaccine regardless of whether it makes sense for them. Even their spouses must be vaxxed. The Blaze reports from Louisiana:

Ochsner Health, the largest hospital system in the state, in August mandated that all of its employees get vaccinated or lose their jobs. Now, the company sent a notice to employees informing them that a health insurance surcharge of $100 per pay period will be inflicted on any employee with an unvaccinated domestic partner or spouse who is covered under the company health insurance plan, a letter sent to employees stated.

Leftist congresscritter Ted Lieu (D-CA), never one of the brightest bulbs on the tree, takes this opportunity to inadvertently make the case for rejecting socialized medicine:

This is not about health, or no one would twist arms to make those with natural immunity get the vaccine. Coercion is an end in itself for people of a certain political persuasion. Squeezing out extra money is the main point for others.

School Board Group Wants Parents Classified as Terrorists

Biden’s arming and funding of the Taliban following his botched surrender to them will probably result in future terror attacks against the USA; even his own ultrapoliticized Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff admits it. If the scale is grand enough, there will be calls for us to surrender still more of our liberties in the name of security. Next time around, we should know better than to give in to the temptation. Measures ostensibly designed to fight foreign enemies will instead be used against us, after Democrats have designated normal Americans as terrorists.

According to the leftists comprising the National School Boards Association, complaining about your children being suffocated by unhealthy Covid muzzles or indoctrinated with poisonous critical race theory propaganda constitutes terrorism:

In a letter to the White House, a group that represents school boards urged the Biden administration to consider whether confrontations by outraged parents over COVID restrictions and critical race theory (CRT) being incorporated into class curriculum violate the Patriot Act. The letter contended that “the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”

The White House is receptive to the tyrannical suggestion:

During a press conference Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki indicated that the administration is investigating whether it can get involved to protect the school boards allegedly receiving these verbal assaults. …

Echoing Psaki at a U.S. Senate committee hearing Thursday, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona slammed the antagonism against school administrators… He expressed concern with the level of animus and aggression exhibited at some school board meetings, calling it “very dangerous.”

Leftists cannot abide parents publicly objecting to what they are doing to children through their control of schools. This is why Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe recently proclaimed that “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” It is why Gavin Newsom blew a gasket over parents speaking up for their kids at schoolboard meetings:

See here, here, here, here, here, and here for examples of the grassroots resistance that has McAwful, Gruesom, and other Democrats so scared.

ChiCom Covid Tyrants Kill Cats

In the land where the disease was designed, authorities have taken Covid tyranny to the point of applying the final solution to cats. From Harbin, China:

The pets’ owner tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus on September 21. Local health officials ordered the woman to leave her apartment that same day and enter a state hospital to begin a mandatory self-isolation period. Before leaving her home, the woman left food and water out for her three pet cats.

She did not want her feline friends to perish. But what individuals want counts for nothing under socialism.

“Shortly after, a community worker carried out tests on the cats and all three cats tested positive for the virus twice, prompting authorities to take action,” the Independent relayed on Thursday, citing a September 28 report by the state-backed Beijing News site.

Online backlash was so fierce against this senseless cruelty that even the infamously tyrannical ChiComs responded, deleting reports of the incident from the social media accounts of Beijing News.

There is no record of anyone getting Covid from a domesticated cat. You would probably be as likely to get it from a pangolin. But there’s always a first time, right Covid tyrants?

If left to their own devices, the cats most likely would have been fine. They even would have had natural immunity from future infection. But it isn’t the way of Big Government to let problems take care of themselves. It prefers to impose solutions that result in worse problems — in this case, three dead cats and one broken heart.

As with Rashad Gober, the gay Black Lives Matter activist arrested for torturing cats, what moonbats do to cats indicates what they might do to people if left unchecked.
