What Changed Their Minds?

Tue, 2021-12-14 11:05 +0000

Steve Kirsch:  The tide is turning: former pro-vax PhDs are now refusing the booster

Recently, I received news that top researchers at multiple highly respected institutions (including Harvard) who had earlier been publicly promoting the vaccine have now changed their minds and are privately refusing to get the booster.

How is that possible? Did we finally convince them with the data? Most of my truthteller friends have been censored and/or deplatformed. So what is causing these people to shift their views so quickly?

Our best convincer is the vaccine itself

The credit for the attitude shift goes our best convincer: the vaccine itself.

Anthony Fauci

Thu, 2021-12-09 20:04 +0000

Roger Kimball:  Anthony Fauci and the Creation of the Bio-Security State

A large part of Kennedy’s book, as its title suggests, is an attack on Dr. Anthony Fauci, who emerges as one of the most malevolent and destructive characters on the public scene in the last five decades. How is it possible that he emerged as “America’s Doctor,” showered with adulation from a terrified but grateful public?

As Kennedy shows in meticulous detail, Fauci’s career has been a litany of greed, incompetence, cruelty, and a callous and unquenchable thirst for power.

He is joined by a rogues’ gallery of supporting actors, including Microsoft busybody Bill Gates and bioweapons expert Robert Kadlec, a Dr. Strangelove wannabe.

Even former MI6 spook Christopher Steele, he of the Trump-Russia “dossier” makes a cameo appearance here.

But the focus is mostly on Fauci and “the carefully planned militarization and monetization of medicine that has left American health ailing and its democracy shattered.”

Last June, Fauci told a reporter that “Attacks on me quite frankly, are attacks on science.”

But what was this “science” of which Fauci spoke?

“As the world watched,” Kennedy notes, “Tony Fauci dictated a series of policies that resulted in by far the most deaths, and one of the highest percentage COVID-19 body counts of any nation on the planet.”

And then came The Turn

Thu, 2021-12-09 16:08 +0000

Liel Leibovitz: The Turn

I have one important thing to tell you: If the left is going to make it “right wing” to simply be decent, then it’s OK to be right.

Why? Because, after 225 long and fruitful years of this terminology, “right” and “left” are now empty categories, meaning little more than “the blue team” and “the green team” in your summer camp’s color war. You don’t get to be “against the rich” if the richest people in the country fund your party in order to preserve their government-sponsored monopolies. You are not “a supporter of free speech” if you oppose free speech for people who disagree with you. You are not “for the people” if you pit most of them against each other based on the color of their skin, or force them out of their jobs because of personal choices related to their bodies. You are not “serious about economic inequality” when you happily order from Amazon without caring much for the devastating impact your purchases have on the small businesses that increasingly are either subjugated by Jeff Bezos’ behemoth or crushed by it altogether. You are not “for science” if you refuse to consider hypotheses that don’t conform to your political convictions and then try to ban critical thought and inquiry from the internet. You are not an “anti-racist” if you label—and sort!—people by race. You are not “against conformism” when you scare people out of voicing dissenting opinions.

‘I Could Have Died’

Thu, 2021-12-09 14:28 +0000

Julie Kelly: January 6 Police Beating Victim Speaks: ‘I Could Have Died’

White then saw a man standing on a ledge near a window; as he attempted to break the glass, she began screaming at him. “I yelled, ‘we don’t do that shit’ and I grabbed his backpack to pull him off.” (Her account is confirmed by video and the government’s criminal complaint against her.)

The site of that confrontation is directly to the left of the lower west terrace tunnel. Looking for a way out of the dense crowd—she had lost sight of her friend at this point—White pushed her way toward the tunnel shortly after 4 p.m. and squeezed into the front opening.

That’s when she encountered a horror scene.

Grown men were crying, White said, from being doused repeatedly with a noxious chemical gas inside the tight confines of the tunnel. People were being crushed. Cops clad in full riot gear had filled the tunnel with the gas, causing victims to vomit and pass out.

“We were trapped. Police were pushing us out using riot shields and people outside were pushing in. I kept falling. A cop sprayed mace directly into my face.”

Then, she said, she felt the first blow.

It came out of nowhere, White told me.

Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

Thu, 2021-12-09 13:20 +0000

Frontline News:  Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS): 'We should anticipate seeing this immune erosion more widely'

Lancet study comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated people in Sweden was conducted among 1.6 million individuals over nine months. It showed that protection against symptomatic COVID-19 declined with time, such that by six months, some of the more vulnerable vaccinated groups were at greater risk than their unvaccinated peers.

Doctors are calling this phenomena in the repeatedly vaccinated “immune erosion” or “acquired immune deficiency”, accounting for elevated incidence of myocarditis and other post-vaccine illnesses that either affect them more rapidly, resulting in death, or more slowly, resulting in chronic illness.

COVID vaccines are not traditional vaccines. Rather, they cause cells to reproduce one portion of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the spike protein. The vaccines thus induce the body to create spike proteins. A person only creates antibodies against this one limited portion (the spike protein) of the virus. This has several downstream deleterious effects.

The Biggest Scandal in American History

Thu, 2021-12-09 12:12 +0000

RealClear Politics: Why the Russiagate Scandal Outranks the Rest 

Russiagate is the biggest scandal in American history.

Nothing comes close in size, scope or harm to the republic than the years-long effort to cripple Donald Trump’s presidency by claiming he conspired with an enemy state to steal the 2016 election and then do its bidding as commander-in-chief.

Its notorious predecessors – L’Affaire Lewinsky, Iran-Contra, Watergate, Teapot Dome, Crédit Mobilier, the XYZ Affair – involved relatively small numbers of malefactors engaged in specific acts of illegality and corruption (we still don’t know who, if anyone, planned the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol)

Russiagate, by contrast, is a vast conspiracy involving innumerable powerful forces, including the Democratic Party, NeverTrump Republicans, the Obama administration, the FBI, Department of Justice and the nation’s most prestigious news outlets.

Scientists May Have Found the Key to Alzheimer's

Thu, 2021-12-09 11:44 +0000

Scientists say they might have discovered the cause of Alzheimer's.

Researchers at the University of California- Riverside (UCR) recently published results from a study that looked at a protein called tau. By studying the different forms tau proteins take, researchers discovered the difference between people who developed dementia and those who didn’t.

The tau protein was critical for researchers because they wanted to understand what the protein could reveal about the mechanism behind plaques and tangles, two critical indicators doctors look for when diagnosing people with Alzheimer’s.

By analyzing donated brain samples, researchers found that those with brain buildup, like plaques and tangles, but had no dementia had a normal form of tau. However, those who had a “different-handed” form of tau and developed plaques or tangles did have dementia.

Oops

Thu, 2021-12-09 11:36 +0000

Victor Davis Hanson:  "Critical race theory would be mainstreamed to excise racism and discrimination by embracing racism and discrimination."

So, what did the people conclude 10 months out from the Woke getting their wishes? 

The polls reveal that voters don’t like open borders at all. They disapprove of illegal immigration as much they support legal immigrants. They worry about crime and drugs. They don’t want the unvetted and unvaccinated flowing across their open border. 

The people want cheaper, not pricier gas. They prefer American energy self-sufficiency. Why, with cup in hand, go begging to Saudi Arabia and Russia to pump more supposedly Satanic oil? 

The people like the police and hate crime. Even the rich among the woke are now scared—some of whom sowed the wind of decriminalization and are themselves reaping the whirlwind of crime. 

Most voters care less about our color, but far more about our character. They think a meritocracy, not quotas and tribal chauvinism, explains the exceptional American standard of life. 

They despise inflation as much as recession—and fear they may now get both soon. 

Freedom-loving individuals don’t like cancel culture, ostracism, iconoclasm, Trotskyization, and commissars. They prefer free speech. They treasure the Bill of Rights. 

So, in just 10 months the Left got what it wanted. And the people are becoming not just sick of what has followed, but disgusted. They are terrified that the Left is not just failing, but also wrecking the country and them along with it.

An Eyewitness Report from Inside the DC Jail — An Excerpt

Wed, 2021-12-08 12:28 +0000

From the Office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene: Unusually Cruel

8. Confrontation over access to January 6 Detainees (8:39 p.m. – 8:50 p.m.) 
As the group waited to fully assemble, Representative Greene initiated a conversation with the D.C. Mayor’s representative, Eugene Kinlow, and Wanda Patten, Deputy Director of Operations, about when the delegation could see the January 6 defendants.

As the conversation progressed, Mr. Kinlow repeatedly stepped away from the delegation to call the “Director,”—presumably the Director of the D.C. Department of Corrections, Mr. Quincy Booth—though this was never confirmed. At one point, the steel prison bar door closed between the delegation and Mr. Kinlow.

Only after Representative Greene threatened to go to the media about the lack of access to the January 6 detainees did DOC staff allow the delegation to proceed to where the detainees were being held in the CTF.

The following conversation took place in a hallway between the CTF and CDF:
~
8:40 PM:
Rep. Greene: And we’re seeing the January 6 defendants? That’s part of our tour. That’s in this building [CTF], isn’t it?

Kinlow: I think we are giving you the same tour that the first group did.

Patten: [They] didn’t go [there].

Kinlow: I don’t think we can go there either.

Rep. Greene: That’s part of the tour. That’s part of what we’re doing tonight.

Kinlow: I get that, but I think it’s clear from the Director that we must match the tours.

Rep. Greene Staff: We didn’t see what the other tour did.

Patten: Yea…

DC DOC Officer: What it is: we went to…and then YME and then we flipped them [the delegation tours].

Rep. Greene: Well, we’re here to see the whole facility—and also see where the January 6 defendants are.

Kinlow: Again, I think the goal was to conform to the first group, and I think that…

Rep. Greene: That’s not what we’re here for. We’re here to see where they are and the rest of the facility.

Kinlow: I don’t think we have the authority…

Rep. Gohmert: What is there to hide? The complaint has been that they’ve been treated differently than the other detainees. I thought tonight we were going to find out.  Rep. Greene to Rep. Gohmert: I can’t imagine the difference. What’s the difference? All
pretrial.

Kinlow: Give me one minute. The Director is offsite.

8:43 PM
pause to wait on Mr. Kinlow to talk on the phone with the Director

8:46 PM
Landerkin: Director says the tour is over.

Rep. Greene: No, the tour’s not over. The whole point of it was to see the entire place, and to see the January 6 defendants.

Landerkin: That’s not my call. That’s the Director’s [decision].

Rep. Greene: Why though? What is the reason?

Patten: Let me say this, there is nothing to hide.

Rep. Greene: If there’s nothing to hide, we should be seeing it. It’s not about the first group [D.C. City Council delegation].

Kinlow: Everything that the first group [D.C. City Council delegation] has seen, you have seen.

Rep. Greene: We don’t care about the first group.

Kinlow: We are not able to accommodate your request at this time.

Rep. Greene: We went in an area where there were people banging on walls and screaming because they have been held in those cells 24 hours a day, and you’re telling us we can’t see where the January 6 defendants, pretrial are? These people are presumed innocent.

Kinlow: You can’t see where they are today. (Emphasis original)

Rep. Greene: Why? To hose them down and clean [them] up? And the facility? What is the problem?

Kinlow: This tour is being concluded.

Rep. Greene: No, this tour should not be concluded. If you don’t have anything to hide, then show us.

Kinlow: I have nothing to hide.

Rep. Greene: You know what’s going to happen when we walk out of here. We’re going to say, “they showed us, gave us this great tour, we got to talk to inmates…”

Kinlow: The D.C. Councilmembers and legislators didn’t get to see this.

Rep. Greene: I don’t care. They didn’t request this.

Rep. Gohmert: That’s their concern, our concern….

Kinlow: I’ve got the Director on the line, and under advice from the Director this [tour is over].

Rep. Greene: WHY?!

Rep. Gohmert: Oh, well, if it’s advice, then we can still go. That’s just advice, that’s not a directive.

pause to wait on Mr. Kinlow to talk on the phone with the Director a second time

Rep. Greene: The well-being of everyone is important and I don’t know why we can’t see one area.

At this point, the steel bar door begins to close, separating Kinlow from the remainder of the group. Kinlow continued to speak with the Director as the doors separated him from the group.  The timing of the doors closing created suspicion that someone activated it on purpose. While DOC staff later claimed the doors automatically close on a timer, the Congressional delegation never received a plausible explanation for why the door closed precisely during the confrontation between the Representatives and the Mayor’s staff.

Rep. Greene: Oh, my goodness gracious.

Rep. Greene Staff: Ok, so we just got shut off from the facility. They just locked the door.

Rep Greene: Why though?

Rep. Gohmert—to Rep. Greene: Like when the Marshals had the surprise inspection it was so they could clean it [the area] up better.  But there’s no reason, since it got cleaned up, for us not to be able to go back there.

Rep. Gohmert—to Deputy Warden Landerkin: You understand, we can also make an appearance before the U.S. judge, and I intend to take action.

After Kinlow finished the call around the corner, away from the group, he returned to make an announcement.

Kinlow: Warden [Landerkin], can you open up?

Landerkin: I’ll get the door open.

The steel bar door begins to slowly re-open, Kinlow rejoined the group.

Kinlow: Alright. It’s ok, we’re [going] to go to that section. I don’t know where it is. I’ve never been there.

DOC Staff: (anxiously) We’ll take them.

Kinlow: Well, let’s go ahead and do it.

Rep. Greene: I just think it’s better for everyone because, listen, I don’t think misinformation is a good thing, and this is the best way to dispel of it.

~
After two hours since the beginning of the tour and after demanding to see the January 6 detainees, the Representatives were finally taken to the area. The conversation in the hallway ended and the group proceeded down another series of hallways and elevators within the CTF until reaching a new, lower level.

9. January 6 Detainee Wing (8:55 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.)
After exiting the elevator and turning right, the delegation of approximately 15 people filed into a narrow hallway which led to a secluded area in the back of the CTF. This area was noticeably different: the January 6 detainee wing was a much older part of the jail that had not been updated in many years. One inmate claimed that this section of the jail had once been used as a psychiatric ward that had been decommissioned before the January 6 inmates were assigned there.

DC DOC staff opened a door and allowed Reps. Greene and Gohmert to enter a large, white, artificially lit room with approximately 40 inmates in orange scrubs scattered throughout the room. Inmates began to pour out of the rooms and approach the delegation of Representatives and staff. The wing had two floors, with cells along the walls of both floors. The center of the room contained a few scattered chairs and tables, but largely open space. The remainder of the room had an aged electronic panel controlling the cell doors, and a common shower area with 3 individual showers with curtains.

Moments after Reps. Greene and Gohmert entered the room, the inmates broke into excited yelling and triumphant shouting, astounded by a visit from two sitting Members of Congress.  The inmates were overwhelmed with emotions: some crying, almost all emotionally shaken. One inmate asked to hug Congresswoman Greene. Except for the January 6 detainees, no other inmates in any part of the jail cried during the visit. Many January 6 inmates had not seen their families in some time and expressed a sense of hope after such a long period of isolation from the outside world.

As inmates gathered around the representatives, chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” rang out. Inmates began to form a line to shake hands with Reps. Greene and Gohmert and their staff. Congresswoman Greene began by asking questions of the inmates:

Rep. Greene: Are you able to see and speak with your attorneys?

Inmates: No!

Rep. Greene: Are you able to talk to and see your family members?

Inmate: No! I haven’t seen my family since April.
Inmate: I haven’t seen my family’s faces since all year!

Rep. Greene: If you have long hair, is that by choice?

Inmate: Unless you’re vaccinated you have to use Nair.

Rep. Greene: Do you feel like you’re being treated fairly?

Inmate: No! Absolutely not. We only get five hours a day out of our cells. Which is better than one hour. We were held for 23 hours a day when we got here.

Rep. Greene: Do you go outside?

Inmate: Twice a week.

Rep. Greene: How many times a day do you get meals?

Inmate: Three. Define meal.

Rep. Greene: How often do you get mail?

Inmate: Whenever they [jail guards] feel like it.

Rep. Greene: Do you get to be included in any kind of educational classes or training?

Inmates: immense sarcastic laughter

Rep. Greene: Tell me about religious services. Are you allowed to have religious services?

Inmate: No. We do our own.

Rep. Greene: Do you have a Bible?

Inmate: Yes ma’am.
Inmate: They said the only way to get Communion is to get vaccinated.
Inmate: They sprayed all the cells with bleach before the Marshals came.

December 7, 1941

Victor Davis Hanson:  Misremembering Pearl Harbor

The Pacific war that followed Pearl Harbor was not a result of America egging on the Japanese, not about starting a race war, and not about much other than a confident and cruel Japanese empire falsely assuming that its stronger American rival either would not or could not stop its transoceanic ambitions. 

On an early Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the Japanese Imperial Navy conducted a tactically successful, but strategically imbecilic, surprise attack on the U.S. 7th Fleet—while at peace and without a declaration of war. The assault—synchronized with subsequent bombing and invasions of the Philippines and British-controlled Malaya, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and some Pacific Islands—did not just ensure an existential Pacific theater war between Japan and America. It also prompted the entry of the United States on December 11 into the European theater of World War II, after both Italy and Nazi Germany first declared war on America. Had the latter not done so, it is arguable that the United States would have instead concentrated on Japan alone and might have knocked it out of the war even earlier.

Revisionists often cite conspiracy theories that the Roosevelt Administration lured Japan into the war by previously limiting oil exports to Tokyo (a mere five months before Pearl Harbor) or by foolishly moving the 7th Fleet from San Diego to a deliberately exposed and not so well defended Pearl Harbor. 

Such contrarian views fail to persuade because the one-sided source of tensions had been clear to all for a decade. Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931. It resumed its war with China by invading the mainland in 1937. In September 1940, it absorbed French colonial Indochina. The idea of a Japanese Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere was informally circulating by 1940, as a blueprint of consolidation of the planned Japanese imperial wartime acquisitions of China, and the former British, American, French, and Dutch colonial territories.

December 7th was also my father's birthday.  On the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, John Bowler turned 32.  Within months he was in the Army.  He had a law degree from Georgetown, so naturally (we joked), the Army made him a medic.  He spent the war years with the U.S. Army in England.
