Tell us something we don’t know Joe!

According to Steven Nelson and Mark Moore of the New York Post, “President Biden on Wednesday spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to reaffirm U.S. support for Israel after a night of bloodshed with civilians in Tel Aviv sheltering from Hamas rockets.”

‘“I had a conversation with Bibi Netanyahu not so long ago. I’ll be putting out a statement very shortly on that,’ Biden told reporters at the White House.”

“Bibi,” huh?

I think only his friends call him that, Joe.  It’s Prime Minister Netanyahu to you Illegitimate Joe.

‘“My expectation and hope is that this will be closing down sooner than later. But Israel has a right to defend itself against thousands of rockets flying into your territory.’”

Reaaaaaaally, Illegitimate Joe?!!! 

Hamas is launching thousands of rockets from Palestine into their country, and you believe your country, and you believe “Israel has a right to defend itself.”

I would have thought that Israel would have allowed itself to be pummeled by rockets until it got permission from you, Joe, to protect itself!

“Israel has launched airstrikes against the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip to target what it says are caches of rockets stored by the Islamist group close to where civilians live.”

“Both sides in the conflict have reported civilian casualties.”

A conflict initiated by Palestine.

A conflict which should really be referred to as Israel responding to a Palestinian attack.

“Biden told reporters that ‘my national security staff and defense staff has been in constant contact with their counterparts in the Middle East — not just with the Israelis but also with everyone from the Egyptians to the Saudis to the Emiratis, etc.’”

Of course…, we know, Joe. Your “staff” are the ones who are really running the show.

“Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke separately with Netanyahu to reaffirm U.S. support.”

Translation: Blinken spoke coherently to Prime Minister Netanyahu, so he could understand what illegitimate Joe was trying to say.   

“The State Department said that Blinken, ‘expressed his concerns regarding the barrage of rocket attacks on Israel, his condolences for the lives lost as a result, and the United States’ strong support for Israel’s right to defend itself.’”

And cognitively challenged Joe was unable to express that?

‘“[Blinken] emphasized the need for Israelis and Palestinians to be able to live in safety and security, as well as enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity, and democracy,’ the State Department said.”

This should have been directed at the Palestinians.

It’s pretty hard to “live in safety and security, as well as enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity, and democracy,” when someone is bombarding you with thousands of rockets.

“Israel was able to shoot down many rockets from Gaza using the U.S.-subsidized Iron Dome missile defense system.”

Thank God for the Iron Dome missile defense system.

“Biden had earlier taken heat over his down-the-middle, approach to the escalating situation in Israel.”

And rightly so.

‘“These attacks prove that the Biden administration’s weak leadership is reversing the historic progress the Trump administration made toward peace in the region and has signaled to terrorist organizations, like Hamas, that they can get away in attacking our nation’s strongest ally in the Middle East,’ Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted Wednesday.”

“Both White House press secretary Jen Psaki and State Department spokesman Ned Price have fielded questions about the escalating conflict in recent days and refused to condemn either side, instead urging both groups to work toward de-escalation.”

‘“The president’s support for Israel’s security, for its legitimate right to defend itself, and its people is fundamental and will never waver. We condemn ongoing rocket attacks by Hamas [even though we support them with millions of U.S. tax dollars] and other terrorist groups, including against Jerusalem.  We also stand against extremism that has inflicted violence on both communities,’ Psaki said on Tuesday to lead off the White House briefing.”

Oh, yes…, we don’t want anyone inflicting violence on the terrorist group, Hamas!

Did anyone at the briefing ask her about the $235 million in payments the Biden administration recently restored to Palestine in April, and, how coincidentally, Hamas now has thousands and thousands of rockets at their disposal to launch at Israel?

That would have been a good question to ask, if anyone in the media there wasn’t a part of the democrats propaganda team. 

‘“Jerusalem, a city of such importance to people of faith around the world, must be a place of coexistence. It is up to the officials, residents, and leaders to restore the city to a place of calm,’ she said.”

Gee, thanks for that, Jen.   

“But Psaki on Wednesday said the talks were continuing.”

‘“We’ve had more than 25 high-level calls and meetings by senior U.S. officials with senior officials from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and our partners and other stakeholders,’ she said.”

Wow…, 25 “high-level calls.”

Not going so good then, huh?

Maybe you need to call in Jared Kushner, from the former Trump administration, to straighten this out?

Of course, not emboldening the Palestinians yourselves would have helped as well.

Just sayin’.

“Price at a State Department briefing responded to criticism that the administration is taking a ‘half-hearted’ approach to the violence unfolding in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

‘“I would respond to that criticism by noting that the United States is doing what we can, knowing that our ability in certain situations is going to be in some cases limited,’ Price said on Tuesday.”

Ha, yeah!  Limited by the pro-Palestine, anti-Israel, far left radicals in your own democrat party.  

 

“He said the U.S. is reaching out to its Israeli partners, Palestinian officials and the global community to defuse the escalating violence.”

They don’t need to “reach out” to anyone.

They need to implicitly let Palestine know they better knock off their attacks, or the U.S., along with Israel, will bomb them back to the stone ages, which really isn’t setting them back too far!  

‘“I think the international community [meaning the anti-Israel community] by and large is calling for precisely what we are calling for, doing precisely what we have attempted to do and to urge calm, de-escalation, and restraint on both sides,’ he said.” 

“Former President Donald Trump, who is considering a rematch against Biden in 2024, faulted Biden for the violence that began with clashes in Jerusalem, saying it happened as a result of ‘Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel.’”

Precisely.

You can always count on President Trump to tell it like it is.

“The Trump administration recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem following a decades-long reluctance due to Arab claims to the city. Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner led an effort that brokered diplomatic relations between Israel and four Arab countries.”

‘“When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked,’ Trump said.”

“In April, Biden reversed the Trump administration’s policy toward the Palestinians and began restoring as much as $253 million in aid.”

“Trump [on the other hand] cut ties with the Palestinian Authority in 2018 after he moved the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

“Republicans criticized the resumption of aid and expressed concern that the funds would eventually end up in the hands of militant groups who would arm themselves and launch a new round of attacks against Israel.”

Bingo!

And it didn’t take very long at all for this to happen.

It’s like Dr. Fauci and the virus.

It’s pretty hard to pretend to want solutions, when you’re the one who created the problem in the first place.

Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

Wait…, what?

Yes, you read correctly.

Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

First of all, I guess I owe China an apology. 

This wasn’t the “China Virus,” it was a “Swamp Virus,” a Democrat virus, created with the funding of the U.S. Government “Deep State” (The Swamp), with the help of the Chinese Wuhan Lab, and orchestrated by a swamp monster in sheep’s clothing, none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci!!!

Let’s just take a moment to let that sink in.

…,

…,

…,

Now you know how it feels to played for a fool.

It doesn’t feel good does it?

Let me just say it again…,

THIS WASN’T THE “CHINA VIRUS,” IT WAS A “SWAMP VIRUS,” A DEMOCRAT VIRUS, CREATED WITH THE FUNDING OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT “DEEP STATE” (THE SWAMP), WITH THE HELP OF THE CHINESE WUHAN LAB, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

AGAIN…, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

Again, let’s just take a moment to let that all sink in.

…,

…,

…,

According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News, “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen, and why isn’t there a criminal investigation?”

An excellent question, Tucker, but we all know only republicans get investigated!

What’s wrong with you?!

What we all want to hear about is how “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen!” 

But first…,

“How do we assess the Biden administration’s response to COVID? Well, here’s one marker: it tells you pretty much everything that the White House that is supposedly so committed to science chose as its head COVID coordinator a man with no background at all in science or medicine. His name is Jeffrey Zients.”

“Zients ran Joe Biden’s presidential transition team, that’s his qualification. He’s a former management consultant from Bain [a management consulting company], who sat on the board of Facebook.”

Jeffrey Zients is a political operative. That’s who’s overseeing COVID response for Joe Biden. The good news is because Zients isn’t even close to being an actual scientist, he doesn’t talk like one. Occasionally he says things whose significance the rest of us can clearly understand. Read what Zients said on CNN, and it becomes very clear how the White House understands this pandemic.”

“JEFFREY ZIENTS: And the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter. Let’s keep up our guard. Let’s follow the CDC guidance. And the CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.”

“There it is. ‘The CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.’ A sentence like that raises so many questions, it’s hard to know where to start. How about here: If the vaccines work, why are any vaccinated people wearing masks anywhere, ever? Seriously. Jeffrey Zients should be required to explain that, slowly and with numbers, so the rest of us who didn’t serve on the board of Facebook can understand. No one’s asked him to explain that, of course, so he hasn’t. Nor has anyone asked Zients just how effective masks are at preventing the spread of COVID.”

“Our public health authorities act as though masks are absolutely critical. But are they absolutely critical? Where are the serious studies that prove that? Do they exist? If they do exist, is there a reason they’re being hidden from us? And, finally, when did masklessness become a privilege? For thousands of years, until 12 months ago, masklessness was the global status quo. Virtually everyone on earth lived without masks. That wasn’t considered weird. Masks were weird. They were unhealthy and menacing.”

“Yet Jeffrey Zients has just informed us that things have changed. Going forward, not wearing a mask, even after you’ve been vaccinated, is ‘a privilege’ — a Scooby snack, a gold star, a pat on the head — that may or may not be granted to you exclusively by the Democratic Party, on the basis of no science, but purely because they’re in charge and you’re not. That’s called public health. It’s absolutely critical to the existence of our species that you comply with it reflexively, without asking questions or thinking about it. This will all continue, Zients explained, ‘across time.’”

“What does that mean, exactly? How long will this terrifyingly irrational exercise continue? For the answer to that question, we go to a man even more partisan than Jeffrey Zients. The nation’s most highly credentialed political operative, Tony Fauci, let us know that, actually, this mask thing is never going to end.”

“CHUCK TODD, NBC: But is the mask going to be something we have with us in a seasonal aspect?”

“DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: You know, that’s quite possible. I think people have gotten used to the fact that wearing masks, clearly, if you look at the data, diminishes respiratory diseases…So it is conceivable that as we go on a year or two or more from now, that during certain seasonal periods when you have respiratory-borne viruses like the flu, people might actually elect to wear masks to diminish the likelihood that you’ll be spreading these respiratory-borne diseases.”

‘“A year or two or more from now.’ In other words, never — you’re never taking off the mask. Get ready for a lifetime of filthy wet cotton covering your mouth, reduced oxygen flow to your brain, and a world where every stranger looks the same because no one has a face. When Kamala Harris and her husband kissed the other day while wearing masks, they were giving you a preview of your daughter’s wedding. In a masked world, human beings never really touch each other. Is that public health? No, it’s not public health. It’s a kind of punishment. Tony Fauci is punishing the country — you, us, everyone. The question is: why is he doing that? You’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysteria is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic?”

Okay…, now we’re getting to the good stuff (bad stuff), really!

“What do we mean by that? We can’t recommend more strongly a new piece by Nicholas Wade, who for more than 50 years has been one of the preeminent science writers in the world. For 30 years, Nicholas Wade worked for the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times. It ran on Medium [an on-line publishing company]. And the piece explains where the virus almost certainly came from. In it, Wade makes it clear that, more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Say again?

“…more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please continue.  

“Wade lays out a nearly insurmountable amount of evidence that this virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Central China.”

He did use the term “insurmountable amount of evidence.”

“We’ve raised this possibility from the early days of the pandemic. But this piece all but proves it. At the time the outbreak began last fall, the Wuhan lab was conducting experiments on how to make bat viruses infectious to human beings. Those experiments were funded by American tax dollars, the funding for those experiments was approved and directed by Tony Fauci in Washington. It’s hard to believe that, but it’s true, and the piece lays it out.”

The question that immediately comes to mind is, why would we want to make bat viruses infectious to human beings in the first place?  Don’t we have enough infectious diseases to deal with?

Secondly, why would America be funding this via a Chinese Lab?

Was Iran and North Korea too busy developing nukes to get in on this?

“Many of the Wuhan experiments fell under the direction of a Chinese researcher Shi Zheng-li. Known as the ‘bat lady,’ she was China’s leading expert on bat-born viruses. Her job was genetically engineering coronaviruses so that they [could] infect human beings, and do so as easily as possible.”

Again…, why?

“The work, Wade notes, involved, ‘doing gain-of-function experiments designed to make coronaviruses infect human cells.’”

“Why was this research going on? You’ll have to ask the scientist who did it.”

You could also ask Anthony Fauci.

But the democrats aren’t going to bring him before Congress, now, and the liberal propaganda fake news media will do their part in hiding the truth.

“But the facts remain, these were some of the most dangerous experiments ever conducted by mankind. And yet we know that China wasn’t taking the necessary safety precautions. And we should not be surprised by that. Several years ago, U.S. diplomatic cables warned about lax standards at the Wuhan Lab. The Wuhan facility was classified as a ‘bio-safety-level two laboratory.’ What does that mean? According to Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers, that’s approximately the same level of safety that you would find in a dentist’s office in America.”

“So that lab, conducting research on the coronavirus, and how to make it transmissible to human beings, resulted almost certainly in infecting a lab researcher and spread from there. The first coronavirus patients didn’t come from the so-called wet market as we heard. That was a lie. The first patients of the coronavirus were employees at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

“Once again, why would the Wuhan lab be conducting experiments like that in the first place? Well, we know that Tony Fauci had authorized payment for the research. For five years — from 2014 to 2019 — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Fauci runs, and has for decades, pumped money to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance.” 

“The EcoHealth Alliance, run by a man called Dr. Peter Daszak, contracted with Dr. Shi to conduct gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.”

“Just before the pandemic became public knowledge — on December 9, 2019 —  Peter Daszak sat for an interview that was streamed online. In that interview, he bragged about how easy it is to manipulate coronaviruses in lab experiments.”

“PETER DASZAK: Coronavirus is a pretty good… You can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily. It’s spike protein, Spike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus, zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, build the protein. And we worked with Ralph Barrack at UNC to do this.  Insert into a backbone of another virus and then do some work in the lab.”

“Just days after he said that, it became clear that this new version of coronavirus, this novel coronavirus, what we now call COVID-19, was running rampant through Wuhan then China then the world. Since the pandemic began, Peter Daszak, not surprisingly, has appeared on virtually every media platform available to him to deny, in the most strenuous and dismissive terms, that the Wuhan lab could not be in any way linked to the outbreak, since he has very personal motives for claiming that. ‘The idea that this virus escaped from a lab is just pure baloney,’ he said last year. But that’s a lie. It’s not pure baloney.”

“A lot of smart people knew that right away. One of those people is Alina Chan, a molecular biologist at the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT. She bravely wrote a paper about how the coronavirus’s genome hadn’t changed much over time, and that was odd because that genome had gone through trillions of replications. According to Chan, that fact implied that the virus was designed for human-to-human transmission from the outset.”

“Millions of people have died of COVID-19, so it’s not a matter of score-settling or blame-assignment to figure out where it came from.”

“If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started. And so, the World Health Organization, said it would get to the bottom of it. The World Health Organization, of course, is beholden to China. And so, it tried to hide the basic facts of the origins of this pandemic. And to hide those facts, WHO appointed none other than Peter Daszak as the only America-based representative on the investigative team looking into where the virus came from. In what turned out to be a sham report, that team concluded it’s ‘extremely unlikely’ the virus came from the Wuhan lab. That’s not true.”

“The WHO’s investigation into the origins of the virus was fraudulent, and that matters to public health globally. But one thing you’ll notice is that Tony Fauci did not say that. Why? Because once again, he’s implicated in it, personally.”

“The gain-of-function research that Peter Daszak was bragging about in the video we just showed you had, in fact, been banned explicitly by the U.S. government. There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on in the Wuhan lab, to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the feds halt its funding to the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question, and Nicholas Wade looked into it.”

“Here’s what he found: ‘Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on p.2 of the moratorium document states that “An exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the USG funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.”’”

“And that’s exactly the loophole that was exploited.”

“Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci —  possibly along with Francis Collins, the director of the NIH — invoked that special exception in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab, and the deadly experiments that were going on there. The experiments that clearly went so wrong.”

“According to Richard Ebright, ‘Unfortunately, the NIAID Director [Fauci] and the NIH Director exploited this loophole to issue exemptions to projects subject to the pause – preposterously asserting the exempted research was “‘urgently necessary to protect public health or national security — thereby nullifying the pause.”’”

The “national security,” of course, was making sure Donald Trump didn’t get re-elected.

“This wouldn’t have happened if Tony Fauci didn’t allow it to happen. That is clear.”

“It’s an amazing story.”

“It is a shocking story.”

Yes, it is.

“In a functional country [a fair country], there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”

I think we can all figure out the answer to that one.

Former White House trade adviser, Peter Navarro, has also accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of being “the “father of COVID-19, while adding he thinks that, “Fauci is a sociopath and a liar.”

Even the Nazi’s “Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele, wasn’t responsible for as many deaths as our own Dr. Fauci apparently is.

AND THIS IS THE GUY WHO HAS BEEN LECTURING US, FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, ABOUT WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO REGARDING OUR SAFETY, AS IT PERTAINS TO THE VIRUS?!

DOES HE HAVE NO CONSCIENCE?

DOES HE HAVE NO SHAME?

THE ANSWER TO THOSE QUESTIONS ARE “NO,” OBVIOUSLY.

IT JUST MAKES YOU WANT TO THROW UP, DOESN’T IT?

Until Fauci is made to answer all of these allegations, I really don’t want to hear another word come out of his disgusting little mouth.

More COVID “Propaganda by Omission”

On his May 5, 2021 show, Tucker Carlson said, “Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccine in the United States … The actual number is almost certainly higher.”

According to Politifact.com, a liberal propaganda arm of The Poynter Institute, please see my prior blog dealing with them,

https://mrericksonrules.com/2019/05/06/hello-poynter-institute-its-your-turn-on-my-own-version-of-the-popular-game-show-whats-my-line/

…and according to Bill McCarthy, of Politifact, “Tucker Carlson’s claims about deaths after COVID-19 vaccinations are misleading.”

You mean like the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the first place?  

“Misleading” like that, Mr. McCarthy?

“Tucker Carlson was citing data from the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System database, or VAERS. The VAERS system is open to anyone, and reports to it are not verified, making it a breeding ground for misinformation about vaccine safety.”

VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, is a United States program for vaccine safety, co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration.

Soooo, VAERS is “co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (the FDA), otherwise known as the Fraudulent Drug Administration, but VAERS is “a breeding ground for misinformation about vaccine safety.”

Hmmm, how does that work exactly?

McCarthy continues by saying, “The entries in the VAERS database are not enough to determine whether a vaccine causes death or any other adverse event, experts said. People can die after getting vaccinated for any number of reasons unrelated to the vaccine.”

Just like “People can die after getting [the virus] for any number of reasons unrelated to the [virus].”

Is it just like that, McCarthy?

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] analyzed the death reports submitted to VAERS through May 3 and concluded that there’s no ‘causal link to COVID-19 vaccines.’”

I’m confused here.

But, isn’t VAERS “co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC)?

So, the CDC is saying their own numbers are misleading themselves?

This may be the first instance I’ve seen of people throwing themselves under the bus!

This is what happens when lies catch up to you.  You’re not only found out to be lying, but you look stupid as well.

“The comments were the latest in a series of controversial remarks by Carlson raising doubts about the vaccines, which clinical trials and real-world studies have shown both safe and effective.”

Safer than taking Hydroxychloroquine?

Just sayin’.

‘“Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccine in the United States — 3,362,’ Carlson told millions of viewers during his primetime TV show May 5. ‘That’s an average of roughly 30 people every day.’”

‘“The actual number is almost certainly higher than that, perhaps vastly higher than that,’ he added. ‘It’s clear that what is happening now, for whatever reason, is not even close to normal.’”

‘“It is exceptionally irresponsible for this man to claim that all these are causal associations. It’s wrong,’ said Dr. Paul Offit, the chair of vaccinology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.”

Yes!!!  How dare he?!!!

Only government authorized “swamp monsters” are allowed to make “exceptionally irresponsible” claims!  Doesn’t he know that?!

“Unlike other official government sources, which flow through consistent reporting channels and get screened by statisticians and analysts before they are made available to the public, VAERS is an open-access system. The reports submitted are not verified before they become public.”

He means unlike other sources which are properly processed through the Democrats’ Gestapo propaganda ministry!  

‘“Anybody can report to it,’ Offit said. ‘If I get a vaccine, or I give my child a vaccine, and I believe that they have turned into the “Incredible Hulk,” then I can write up a one-page report online and submit it, and that then is included. And that’s been done.’”

Oh really?

A disclaimer on the VAERS website says the ‘reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness,’ in part because they ‘may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.’ People accessing the database must click an option that says that they’ve read and understand the disclaimer.”

“Offit said VAERS works best as ‘a hypothesis-generating mechanism’ that can tip scientists off to issues for further study, such as the rare cases of blood clots that prompted the agency to recommend a temporary pause on use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”

“In this case, the CDC has analyzed all the reports of death among COVID-19 vaccine recipients that were submitted to VAERS between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 3.”

‘“A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines,’ the agency concluded.”

“To establish causation, scientists need to find proof that an adverse event is significantly more common among vaccinated people than unvaccinated people. VAERS doesn’t provide enough data to do that.”

“As of May 5, nearly 150 million Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and many of the early shots went to older and more vulnerable people.”

“When you’re giving a COVID-19 vaccine to elderly adults, there are going to be people who die shortly after vaccination because they would have died anyway,” Dr. William Moss, executive director of Johns Hopkins’s International Vaccine Access Center, previously told PolitiFact.

“An estimated 8,000 Americans die every day of all causes, according to the CDC.”

‘“You can get the vaccine and still die from other reasons,’ Offit said.”

One of my questions is, where’s the side block on the news screens showing the running number of vaccination deaths in the U.S. and worldwide?  

Another question would be, how come we don’t hear ONE thing being reported about vaccination deaths?!

Isn’t it odd as well that the usual annual flu has basically disappeared?

Those of us with basic common sense just have to question this.

Regarding the yearly flu vaccines, on average, 140 million people get the shot and on average 183 people die.

Even if the COVID vaccination deaths are less than Tucker Carlson claims, but still three, four, five, or more times higher than the annual flu vaccination deaths, isn’t that news?     

It’s only not news if you don’t want it to be.

Just sayin’.

Rip-off alert! Rip-off alert!

I just have to call out some of these snake oil peddlers from time to time.

In this case, I’m referring to “Balance of Nature.’

If you haven’t seen their commercials, they have people claiming that taking these little capsules of pulverized fruits and vegetables have cured any number of ailments.

Do these people look like the pictures of health we should all emulate?

Hmmm…, let’s take a closer look.

“Balance of Nature” suggests we take 3 fruit capsules and 3 veggie capsules per day.

If you take a look at the size of these capsules, this is like the equivalent of eating a couple strawberries and maybe one carrot!

And this is their miraculous cure all?!

They claim to “pack 10 servings of fruits and vegetables into 6 tiny capsules.”

At least the “tiny capsules” part is right!

Let’s use a little common sense here.

I don’t care how much you smash and grind up something…, it is still going to take up the same basic amount of space.  It’s just basic science.

These people want us to believe they have their own “Honey, I shrunk the fruits and veggies” process.

Well, they don’t.

Just sayin’.

So, when we look at their bottle of fruits capsules and their bottle of veggies capsules, it’s like the equivalent of buying a couple bananas, a couple of apples, and a head of broccoli.

And for the equivalent of a couple bananas, a couple of apples, and a head of broccoli, you get to spend $89.95…, plus tax!  That comes to about 50 cents per capsule.

That’s for a “thirty day supply.”

But, hey, shipping is free!

They say this is how “nature intended” us to get our fruits and veggies!

Really?!

Do you realize how many real fruits and real veggies you could buy for $90?

Taking these capsules certainly don’t hurt.  And if you typically don’t eat any fruits or vegetables, taking these capsules is better than nothing, but they certainly are not going to change your life or significantly improve your health.

It really helps to step back and use a little common sense.

People would be much better off investing in a bottle of good daily multi-vitamins, a bag of apples and a bag of carrots, at a fifth of what these miracle capsules cost.

I’m confused about the Ma’khia Bryant shooting.

So, let me get this straight…,

What we had here was one, or both of the black girls involved, calling 911 so the “blacks killing cops” would come to save her from another black girl who was trying to stab her. 

Then…,

The racist, blacks hating, cop saves the one black girl’s life by shooting the other black girl.

Then…,

We get LeBron James, a parade of liberal pundits, democrat politicians, and other useful idiots, calling for the lynching of this police officer, who was called to the situation by a black girl, to save this black girl’s life, which he did.

Hmmm.

I wonder why, if Ma’khia Bryant was one of the ones who called 911, she wouldn’t put her knife down and let the cops handle it from there?

Didn’t she realize the cops could not just stand by while she stabbed the other girl?

And as far as the girl who was getting attacked by Ma’khia goes, I just wonder if she’ll defend the police officer who saved her life, or throw him under the bus?

I’m guessing she’ll end up saying she wanted help, but she didn’t want the other girl to be shot.

I’m guessing she’ll say she would have preferred the cop to have stepped in between them and taken the knife for her.

That’s all well and good, but doesn’t this cop have a right to go home after his shift?

Doesn’t his family, girlfriend, or wife, and kids, have a right to have their husband or dad come home after his shift?

Cops swear “to serve and protect,” not to be sacrificial lambs.     

I’m guessing this girl will end up joining the mob, calling for this officer’s head.

I hope I’m wrong.

We’ll see.

I have to ask the question, though…, why doesn’t LeBron James, his liberal elite friends, the mainstream “fake news” media, democrat politicians, and other useful idiots, get upset about the hundreds of black people who are shot and killed every weekend, in our big, liberal-run cities, by other blacks?

This situation is one hundred times worse than their police concerns.

I guess black lives really don’t matter to them, unless those lives can be used to promote their racist, and divisive, narrative.

This is not to say that police officers shouldn’t be held accountable for their actions…, I’m just saying we should not ignore the bigger problem.

And again, I just have to mention, the next day we had pictures of this cop and knew who he was, while the identity of unarmed Ashli Babbitt’s Capitol police officer killer, from 01/06/21, still has not been released.

Different strokes for politically different folks.

In Maxine’s own words.

And this “Maxine” I’m referring to is democrat Maxine Waters, a congresswoman from California.

She’s a poster child for term limits.

She’s 82 years old, and has been in Congress since 1991.  That’s 30 years, or 15 terms in office.

That’s 15 terms too many, in my opinion.

I’m going to conduct a little exercise in “turnabout is fair play” here.

What if I was to direct Maxine’s own comments back onto her and her democrat friends?

That would be fair wouldn’t it?

Well, let’s see.

Maxine has said, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents [referring to immigrant children being held at the border],” Waters said at the Wilshire Federal Building, according to video of the event.

“We don’t know what damage has been done to these children. All that we know is they’re in cages. They’re in prisons. They’re in jails. I don’t care what they call it, that’s where they are and Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this,” she added.

Waters appeared on MSNBC later in the day to double down on her remarks, saying she has “no sympathy” for members of the Trump administration.

“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”

Sooo, if I said: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see [Maxine Waters or any of her democrat friends] in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents [referring to immigrant children being held at the border].”

“We don’t know what damage has been done to these children. All that we know is they’re in cages. They’re in prisons. They’re in jails. I don’t care what they call it, that’s where they are and Mr. President [Joe Biden in this case], we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this.”

[We have] no sympathy for members of the [Biden] administration.

“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”

So, that would be okay?

Maxine has also said, “We’re looking for a guilty verdict and we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd. If nothing does not happen, then we know that we got to not only stay in the street, but we have got to fight for justice.”

“We got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

“I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up,” she said.

Sooo, if I said: “We’re looking for a guilty verdict and we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to [Ashli Babbitt] [The woman who was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer during the protests on January 6th.]. If nothing [happens], then we know that we got to not only stay in the street, but we have got to fight for justice.”

“We got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

“I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up.”

So, that would be okay as well?

According to Chris Sommerfeldt, for the New York Daily News, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi backed up California Rep. Maxine Waters on Monday, arguing that the Democratic congresswoman ‘absolutely’ did not try to stoke violence by calling on Black Lives Matter protesters to ‘get more confrontational’ if ex-Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin is acquitted of killing George Floyd.”

So, then Nancy shouldn’t have any problems with my comments either, right? 

But didn’t she believe what President Trump said on 01/06/21, which was far less inflammatory, was instigating an insurrection, and worthy of impeachment?

Just sayin’.     

“Waters, a lightning rod for right-wing criticism, has come under fire from conservatives over making the heated remark while attending a protest in Minnesota over the weekend — but Pelosi told reporters that Republicans are taking her comments out of context.”

“Out of context?

And, what context would that be?

The context of a crazy, old, racist, cognitively challenged, liberal? 

Well, I suppose, Nancy Pelosi fits that mold as well!

Brett Favre is right about being “woke.”

According to Shalise Manza Young, of Yahoo Sports, “Brett Favre’s bleating about politics in sports is rank with privilege, ignorance and hypocrisy.”

Brett Favre, of course, is the former NFL quarterback, and Hall of Famer, who played for the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, and the Minnesota Vikings.

Before I start hammering you, regarding your idiotic comments, Shalise, are you related to Androgynous Pat?”  

Just wondering.  

Well, anyway, let’s get back to Shalise Manza Young’s comments.

“One of the things about being in this position is that you have to do your best to be fair. Journalism shouldn’t be a lack of objectivity, because that’s impossible; every human approaches a story through their lens, colored by their experiences. It should be about fairness.”

Wait, what?

Did she just say, “It should be about fairness?”

Fairness, yes…, and also peoples’ rights to have their own opinions.  

To wit: Writers love interview subjects who are fun, frank, even unpredictable. We want people to say what’s on their mind because it makes for better stories.”

It also makes it easier for you and your kind to beat people over the head you don’t agree with…, right Sharise?  

“But as a human being, seeing Brett Favre still bleating the same privileged, narrow-minded, anti-Black rhetoric makes my blood boil.”

How do you get “privileged, narrow-minded, anti-Black rhetoric” out of his “frank” opinion, which everyone has a right to, except in “Shariseland,” apparently?   

“In theory, journalists or not, we’re all supposed to be trying to do a better job listening to people with different opinions than us, so hushing someone should be verboten.”

Bingo!

“Racism isn’t a difference of opinion, though, like whether or not pineapple should be on pizza (answer: yes).”

Just for the record, that’s worse than racism in my opinion!

“Repeating myths that have been disproven time and again isn’t right or fair. Being a blatant hypocrite makes it worse.”

Well, I guess you oughta know, Sharise.

“So here we are.”

Truer words were never spoken.

“On Sunday, Favre made comments on a radio show once again lamenting players who don’t look like him using their right as free citizens to express their opinion and try to shine a light on the continued, often violent injustices faced by non-white, non-heterosexual, non-cisgendered people every day.”

Just to be clear, Favre never said anything about what the players looked like that he was talking about.  He only talked about the actions of certain players, without regard to the color of their skin.

The rest of it you just hung on him to suit your racist point of view.

“He called athletes kneeling during the anthem ‘a shame’ and wondered why ‘standing patriotically’ for a piece of fabric isn’t the great unifier he believes it should be.”

You’re the one crying about people not being able to use their right as free citizens to express their opinion…, but that doesn’t include Brett Favre I guess.

“He intimated once again that he doesn’t want politics in sports, as if politics haven’t been part of sports in this country for at least a century.”

As an avid sports fan most of my life, I really don’t recall politics being infused into sports that much, or at all, until the last few years.

I’m not sure where you’re getting your information from, Sharise.  I’m guessing you’re just making that up to fit your narrative, like most “reporters” do these days.    

“Favre said, ‘When I turn on a game, I want to watch a game. I want to watch players play and teams win, lose, come from behind. I want to watch all the important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside of the game.’”

BINGO!

THANK YOU.  

“We should all patiently wait for Favre to produce video of an NFL player stopping a live game to discuss police brutality, the troubling racial disparities in maternal mortality, or the continued scourge of redlining and its impact on Black families.”

“Not a single one has. They’ve worn T-shirts during warmups and kneeled or raised fists during the pre-kickoff anthem. They’ve shared their perspectives after games or in the locker room on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, when the games were days away.”

“What Favre is saying is that he wants the politics he doesn’t agree with, and the concerns of Black players and their community, to not have to enter his consciousness. Because he, as a white man, does not have to care about their concerns.”

NO…, WHAT HE’S SAYING IS WHEN PEOPLE TUNE INTO A FOOTBALL GAME, OR WHATEVER GAME, THEY’RE TURNING IT ON FOR ENTERTAINMENT, AND AS AN ESCAPE FROM ALL OF THE CRAP IN THEIR LIVES, WHICH INCLUDES POLITICS AND POLITICAL TURMOIL. AND THAT INCLUDES FANS OF ALL RACES I BELIVE.

If we turn on a game and get smacked in the face with political issues of the day, then what’s the point? Where’s the escape. Where’s the entertainment?

There have been quite a few games, I’ve personally tuned into, that wanted me to watch some race related “lesson,” which I immediately turned off. 

Then, yes, we have to see t-shirts with political messages on them, and “victims” names on helmets and uniforms, along with “woke” messages on uniforms and on the fields and courts themselves.

I’m sorry, but many of us just want a break from all of this.  

If these sports don’t want to afford us this one luxury, then we’re out.  We’ll find something else to watch or do.  

Nobody begrudges an athlete’s right to be an activist for any cause, but please, do it on your own time, not your customers’ time.     

“If you want proof that is how Favre feels, look no further than his Oct. 30, 2020 tweet, when he told the world he’d be voting for Donald Trump in the coming election, listing ‘freedom of speech’ as one of the reasons why.”

There’s the reason for Sharise’s attack!

Brett Favre committed the ultimate sin of saying he supports Donald Trump!

“What’s more political — and hypocritical — than that?” She continues.  

“What’s more privileged than telling others to shut up to appease you?”

Like Maxine Waters did to Jim Jordan in that congressional hearing? 

Like that?

Like you said, “What’s more political — and hypocritical — than that?”

“Even the NFL, which isn’t exactly a beacon of equity and anti-racist behavior, has come out in support of the notion that Black lives matter and gave players the green light to protest during the anthem through commissioner Roger Goodell’s statement last summer and actions during the 2020 season.”

Yes…, by all means, let’s not fail to contribute to Black Lives Matter (BLM)! We wouldn’t want the founding Marxists of BLM to have to sacrifice any of their multi-million dollar homes, would we?

“Maybe he [Favre] would have understood a small fraction of what it means to be Black, why nearly every political decision made here for 400 years, before this was even America, has been made with our degradation and marginalization in mind. Maybe he would understand why players kneel.”

Your level of confusion is quite impressive, Shalise!

It’s not about understanding…, it’s about his and all of ours’ right to not give a sh*t…, at least for the few hours it takes to watch a game.

Please, don’t take out your racial, political, sexual or gender or whatever frustrations out on Brett Favre.

He’s allowed to feel however he wants to feel, and so is everyone else.

No justice for Ashli Babbitt.

Tucker Carlson, of Fox News, says, “America is now one nation with two very different justice systems.”

I would say this has been the case for quite a few years now!

“The people in power crack down on their enemies and give their allies a soft landing.”

“The ironically-named ‘Civil Rights Division’ of the Biden Justice [InJustice] Department announced Wednesday [4/14/21] there will be no charges brought against the man who shot and killed protester Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol back in January. No one who pays attention was surprised to hear this.”

If it was a black woman, or a liberal protester, who got shot by a white cop, there damn sure would be charges being brought, and lynch mobs forming, just like in Minnesota these days.  

Just sayin’.

Please see my prior blogs on this matter for a better frame of reference:

https://mrericksonrules.com/2021/01/12/the-storm-is-here/

https://mrericksonrules.com/2021/01/29/so-hows-that-investigation-going/

https://mrericksonrules.com/2021/03/03/let-me-tell-you-whats-up-with-the-jan-6-capitol-riot/

https://mrericksonrules.com/2021/03/17/wheres-the-justice-for-ashli-babbitt/

 “In cases like this, the benefit of the doubt usually does go to law enforcement, and as we’ve often said, we’re fine with that. It should. But still, in a free society, the rest of us have a right to know roughly what happened. In this case, who shot Ashli Babbitt and why?”

You forget, Tucker, that the new deep state “Gestapo” doesn’t have to answer to anybody. 

“No one will tell us. The Biden administration says the man who killed Babbitt is a Capitol Hill police officer, and he did the right thing. That’s all they’ve said.”

“Did the right thing?”

“Did the right thing” where?

Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, Communist China, North Korea?

Does the United States fit in with this group now?

“We know that Ashli Babbitt was short, female [an Air Force veteran] and unarmed. There’s no evidence the officer who killed her gave any kind of verbal warming before he pulled the trigger. Is that standard procedure?”

No.

“We’d imagined the rules of engagement for federal agents limited the use of deadly force to situations where law enforcement has reason to believe they or the people around them are in imminent danger of being harmed. You can’t just shoot people without warning because they’re in the wrong place. That’s not allowed.”

“Except now, apparently, it is allowed.”

“When did these rules change?”

When the Democrat Nazi Party assumed power.

“And, once again, who exactly shot Ashli Babbitt? Journalists exist to ask questions like these, but they’re not.”

“The Washington Post wrote a long story about the DOJ’s [Ha! You the “J” in DOJ stands for justice?!] announcement in the case and never raised a single one of these questions. The Post didn’t name the shooter or even acknowledge that the government is withholding his name.” 

Why would the government be able to withhold his name?

How is the government able to withhold his name?

‘“Authorities determined that there was insufficient evidence to prove Babbitt’s civil rights were violated,’ the Post declared. That was it. The rest of the piece was a personal attack on Ashli Babbitt and her political views. She deserved to die. That was the point of the Washington Post story.”

Regardless of whether her civil rights were violated or not [they were], she was murdered by a Capitol police officer, and there’s plenty of evidence to prove that.

This officer has obviously been offered protection as long as he keeps his mouth shut, concerning the circumstances of their response to the protesters and the shooting itself.     

“How amazing to read something like this, especially now. Eleven hundred miles from Washington, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, a police officer accidentally reached for her gun instead of a Taser and killed a man called Daunte Wright. It was a tragedy, as all shootings are. But we know that officer’s name because every news organization in the country printed it immediately. She has now resigned and is facing charges. Her mugshot is all over the Internet. Two nights ago, a mob showed up at her house, forcing her to flee.”

Quite a difference between how the two cases are being handled.  

Like Tucker said, “America is now one nation with two very different justice systems,” although neither is affording any justice.

“She’s not the only one. Last August, a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot a man called Jacob Blake. Remember that? Riots erupted immediately. Yesterday, that officer was cleared of all charges. When that story broke, NPR put that police officer’s name and photograph on the front of their website.”

“So that’s the standard, except in this case where they are still hiding the identity of the man who shot Ashli Babbitt.”

Ashli, of course, was white, a conservative, and a Trump supporter, deeming her unworthy of any rights or consideration at all…, just like a Jew back in the days of the Nazis and the Third Reich.  

“Sensing a theme here? The standards that big news organizations use to cover shootings depend entirely on the political views of the people who get shot. When The Washington Post doesn’t like the candidates you vote for, they suppress the details of the case. In the case of Ashli Babbitt, we’d know next to nothing about how she died, and we wouldn’t know anything if her shooting hadn’t been captured on video by people who don’t work at the Washington Post.” 

“One of those people is a video editor from Texas called Samuel Montyoa. Montoya was in the U.S. Capitol that day. Montoya doesn’t look much like a White supremacist, and he has no criminal history that we’re aware of. On Jan. 6, Samuel Montoya took what may be the clearest video of Ashli Babbitt’s death:

https://mssl.fwmrm.net/m/1/382114/77/9982029/21NFM134830H_ENT_MEZZ_HULU_2968404_578.mp4

“When you watch the video, there are a lot of things to notice. Ashli Babbitt had no weapon. She wasn’t attacking anyone. She couldn’t attack anyone, because she was climbing through a window at the moment she was shot. But what’s most striking is that several Capitol Hill police officers in paramilitary gear were standing directly behind Babbitt when she was killed. They were carrying what Joe Biden refers to as weapons of war — loaded AR-15s.”

In addition, as you watch the video, you can see, initially, there are three Capitol police officers standing between the group of protesters in the hallway and the doors.

At this point, everything seems to be relatively under control.  Then for some reason the three officers abandon their position in front of the doors and move behind the group, seemingly allowing, or even inviting, the protesters to have their way with the doors.

Then, you can see the officer on the other side of the doors, who is black, step out and shoot Ashli Babbitt.

The officer shoots at Ashli Babbitt, who is in a crowed of people, with the three other armed officers directly behind her!

The three officers behind Ashli apparently didn’t think she was a threat.

They didn’t lift a finger to stop what was going on.

And anyone of those three could have been very easily hit by the officer firing the shot as well.

Even if Ashli did manage to get through the doors, what was she going to do that justified her being killed?   

Tucker continues, “So, tell us again how Ashli Babbitt posed an imminent physical threat to anyone when she was shot. She didn’t. Samuel Montoya’s footage proves it. And we’re grateful we have that tape. If we didn’t, The New York Times would be telling us that Ashli Babbitt was beating people to death with a fire extinguisher when she was killed.  Thanks to Samuel Montoya, the New York Times can’t claim that.”

The story about the guy beating an officer with a fire extinguisher turned out to be made up propaganda as well.

“We’d love to have Montoya on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ to describe what he saw that day, but we can’t do that, because he’s in jail.”

“Yesterday, a large group of armed federal agents showed up at his house in Austin. They smashed Montoya’s front door, confiscated his electronic devices and threw him in jail.”

Sounds like the new democrat “Gestapo” to me!

“He’s behind bars right now.  What was his crime?” 

“Well, to find out, we read the Biden administration’s arrest warrant application. The FBI says it began investigating Montoya after one of his family members provided ‘proof that Montoya was physically inside the U.S. Capital near the shooting of a woman on January 6, 2021.’ To be clear, Montoya didn’t shoot the woman. He just happened to be nearby.”

So, the guy who took the video of the shooting is arrested, but the guy who actually did the shooting wasn’t?

“But wait a second. Weren’t there plenty of journalists inside the Capitol on Jan. 6? According to CNN, yes there were. CNN ran a piece telling us that, ‘Congressional reporters became the country’s eyes and ears as rioters stormed Capitol Hill.’ So why hasn’t the FBI arrested the people CNN identified in its story — the photographers from Getty, the political reporters from NBC, the congressional correspondents from CNN and the AP?”

Those people were all authorized to be there by the democrat “Gestapo,” silly! That’s why.  

“Well, that’s a good question. The FBI explains why in the warrant affidavit. ‘At times during the video, Montoya describes himself to others inside the Capitol Building as a “reporter” or “journalist” as he attempts to get through crowds.’ And yet, the FBI concludes, ‘The director of the Congressional press galleries within the Senate Press office did a name check on Samuel Christopher Montoya and confirmed that no one by that name has Congressional press credentials as an individual, or via any other organizations.’”

The nerve of this individual to “identify” himself as a reporter!!!

Form the firing squad immediately!

“So, that’s the standard. If the U.S. Congress’s credentialing office says that you’re not a journalist, you’re not a journalist. Did Samuel Montoya have strong personal political views? Apparently, he did. But you may have noticed that’s not so unusual in journalism right now. So why is journalist Samuel Montoya behind bars tonight? Well, he committed a crime? ‘Interfering with government business.’ In other words, trespassing. If this happened in Ukraine, what are the chances NBC News would describe Samuel Montoya as a ‘dissident journalist,’ and then describe Ashli Babbitt an ‘unarmed pro-democracy demonstrator?’ The chances are roughly 100%.”

“But this is America, and they’re not saying that. Instead they’re telling us that Ashli Babbitt deserved to die.”

“Joy Reid, of MSNBC, said, ‘She embraced conspiracy theories. Her name was Ashli Babbitt, 35 years old. She tweeted about Pizzagate. She tweeted thousands of tweets to Fox News hosts. She engaged [on] social media with the conspiracy news Internet site Info Wars. In 2020, she began to tweet with QAnon accounts and use QAnon hashtags.’”

“Oh, see, not a pro-democracy demonstrator, not an unarmed military veteran. So, she sent tweets to Fox News hosts. No problem. Ashli Babbitt got what she deserved.”

“What’s amazing is not simply the grotesque cruelty of assessments like that — a young women is shot to death and the media applaud — but what’s more amazing is the contrast between this and the coverage of other violence that’s now in progress.”

“Tuesday night, Biden voters burned a police building in Portland, Oregon. Did you know that? Probably not, it didn’t get much coverage.” 

“In the wake of Daunte Wright’s death Sunday, riots broke out all over the country, in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Minneapolis.”

“People were stealing stuff off store shelves, but don’t call it looting. It’s a peaceful demonstration. We know that because the mayor of Brooklyn Center, Mike Elliott, told us so. Tuesday night, Mayor Elliott tweeted a picture of himself on the scene.”

‘“Earlier this evening, I had the opportunity to go talk to these peaceful protesters,’ he wrote. ‘Our city is calm now.’”

“Here’s the funny thing: the mayor’s wearing a Kevlar helmet in the picture, which was not taken in Syria, but in his own town. That’s how peaceful it is. He was wearing a Kevlar helmet. Whatever else he is, Mike Elliott isn’t a very effective liar.”

“Laws have no meaning if they’re not applied equally. When they are not applied equally, they are not even laws. They’re just tools of political persecution. You don’t want to live in a country like that, even if the people you don’t like are the ones being persecuted.”

“Rashida Tlaib does want to live like that. Tlaib is a member of Congress, so her security is never in doubt. She’s protected by bodyguards, weapons of war, and now thousands of federal troops you’re paying for. She’s fine. But in your neighborhood, she’d like to see the police eliminated.”

‘“No more policing, incarceration, and militarization,’ Tlaib wrote on Twitter this week. ‘It can’t be reformed.’”

“Again, militarization is fine if the military is protecting her. She’s got federal troops. But not for you. You get mob rule. We’re not making this up, we’re not misquoting her. She’s demanding this in public as a member of Congress. Many are.”

“A panel of privileged people tell you to abolish the police. But they’re not saying actually abolish the police. We often claim they are, but listen very carefully. They say they want to abolish American policing as it currently exists. And that raises the question: how does policing currently exist?”

“Here’s how: local communities get to control it. So, the cops walking down your street, you hired them. That’s what Rashida Tlaib doesn’t like. That’s what offends MSNBC. The thing they hate about it is that they don’t control it. They can’t use your local police department to punish you for your political views. For that, they have to go to the FBI. It drives them crazy.” 

“Abolishing the police doesn’t mean getting rid of people with guns. It merely and specifically means stripping you of any control over local law enforcement. It’s just a more ambitious form of gun control, meant to disempower the citizenry, not protect them. When your police department answers to them, things will be very different.” 

“To get a sense of how different, take a look at what the Biden administration is doing in the state of Oregon. In the past few days, federal prosecutors have essentially dropped half a dozen federal felony cases that arose from those famous riots in Portland last summer. The feds reached non-prosecution agreements, which ensure that people who committed felonies will walk away with no criminal record of any kind.”

“What are the defendants in Oregon accused of doing? More than trespassing.”

“One of them, a woman called Alexandra Eutin, was charged with beating a Portland police officer in the head with a wooden shield while he was trying to make an arrest.”

“Now that’s bad, obviously. But it’s not quite as bad as, say, voting for Donald Trump, or walking around the Capitol building with a camera. Alexandra Eutin won’t have a criminal record by the end of this. Samuel Montoya could spend the next seven years in jail.”

“You see what’s going on. Two systems of justice — one for the allies of the people in charge, and a very different one for their enemies. These aren’t traditional liberals. They’re not calling for a peaceful utopia where no one uses violence. This isn’t the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. That was the old liberalism. We used to make fun of it, when it was going on. We could use a lot more of it now. This stuff is scary.”

Agreed.

This stuff is very scary.

Our country is being hijacked right before our eye by “the deep state,” a razor thin majority in the House of Representatives, no majority in the Senate, and an illegitimate president.

Gun Laws 101.

Class is now in session!

Here is my third public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Gun Laws 101.”

Okay…, well, let’s get the class rolling.

Are you ready?

Here we go.

The first thing we have to recognize is that CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Again…, CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

So, for our democrat friends, especially Illegitimate Joe, Cackling Kamala, Crazy Nancy Pelosi, and Upchuck Schumer…, here is the breaking news:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Did you get that, Joe, Kamala, Nancy, Chuck, along with the rest of your clueless democrat friends?

And truthfully, there are some clueless, establishment republicans who need reminding as well.

So, just in case you missed it:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

The only people any gun laws you pass will have any effect on are the law-abiding gun owners who are not the problem in the first place.

Again:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

Okay, so, back to addressing my students.

So, whenever we hear these disingenuous politicians pontificating on the new gun laws they are proposing, just be aware that it is a bunch of hot air that will do absolutely nothing, regarding gun violence in our country.

NOTHING.

CRIMINALS DO NOT BUY THEIR GUNS AT DICK’S SPORTING GOODS, BASS PRO SHOPS, OR CABELAS.

CRIMINALS USE STOLEN GUNS OR GUNS THEY GET ILLEGALLY OFF THE BLACK MARKET.

So, the politicians can make legally buying a firearm as difficult as they want, but these added requirements only make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase a gun.

THESE ADDED ROAD BLOCKS TO BUYING A GUN HAVE NO EFFECT ON CRIMINALS OBTAINING A WEAPON.

NONE.

The ironic part of this whole issue is that we already have plenty of gun laws on the books to deter gun violence.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COURTS DON’T PROPERLY ENFORCE THE LAW!

OVER 75% OF PEOPLE WHO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS!

PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF CIRCULATION AND PUT AWAY FOR A LONG TIME.

WE HAVE TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT IF YOU USE A GUN ILLEGALLY, YOU WILL NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO AGAIN.

It is not hard to figure out, that if we do this, within a few years, the rate of crime involving a weapon will go way down.

WAY DOWN.

Gun laws are there to protect law-abiding citizens.

IF THE COURT SYSTEM CHOOSES TO TREAT GUN CRIME LIGHTLY, THEY DO SO AT THE EXPENSE OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMES AGANST SOCIETY AS WELL.  

So, do we really need any new gun laws?

No.

IF THE POLITICIANS REALLY WANT TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE, ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS DEMAND THAT OUR CURRENT LAWS ARE ENFORCED, AND THAT USING A GUN ILLEGALLY WILL BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

The sad part is they already know this, but they knowingly choose to put the “rights” of criminals ahead of the rights of the victims and law-abiding citizens, like you and me.

They make sure they’re protected though.

It’s the ultimate challenge a free society has to face.

The laws that allow us to enjoy freedom are the same laws that allow the haters of America’s freedoms to attack our freedom.

CNN is fake news?! No way! Way!!!

Mark Moore, for the New York Post, reports that, “A CNN staffer boasts to Project Veritas that network peddled anti-Trump ‘propaganda.’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, claims, ‘If it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ during a series of fake Tinder dates filmed by Project Veritas.”

“Tinder” is a social networking and online dating app.

Do we love Project Veritas, or what?!

This is too funny!

What a moron…, bragging to fake Tinder dates how influential CNN and he were!

‘“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100​ percent going to say it, and I 100​ percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ Chester said, adding that he came to work at CNN because he ‘​wanted to be a part of that.’”

‘“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was.’”

Many of us were already aware of this, but for those who had any doubt, here it right from the horse’s mouth.

“Chester explained how they overdramatized Trump health issues by bringing in medical experts.”

‘“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to all tell a story that was all speculation – that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to – you know – whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. I think that’s propaganda,’ he said.”

So, he thinks that was propaganda.

Uh, yeah, Charlie, I think you’re correct there.

Definitely propaganda.

“Asked by the ​sleuth if he and CNN were concerned with Joe Biden’s health during the election, Chester said the network had that in mind.​”

‘“Showing him jogging is obviously deflection of his age and they’re [CNN] trying to make it like, ‘Oh, I’m healthy,’ Chester said.”

“The date asked, ‘What do you mean?’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN says the network was ‘creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about,’ in regards to former President Donald Trump’s health issues.”

‘“We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric​,’ Chester replied.”

“A source close to CNN said Project Veritas targeted Chester through the dating app Tinder because his profile mentioned he worked at CNN, according to Mediaite [a political website].”

“The Project Veritas employee, who was not identified and claimed to be a nurse, went on five dates wearing a wire, including the final one at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood.”

Ha!

These people are better than the FBI!  

“Chester told his ‘date’ he would be fine with it if Biden died, because he thought Vice President Kamala Harris is ‘f—ing real.’”

I’m sure Illegitimate Joe will be glad to hear that.

‘“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, “You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. ‘And I’m like, He’s not going to f—ing die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b—h in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f—ing real, and better than what we got regardless.’”

Wow…, how gender sensitive of you, Charlie.

Yup…, “woke” Charlie, that’s our boy!

“Chester was asked if CNN covered Biden tripping as he walked up the stairs.”

‘“You talk about that briefly. You don’t make that a huge story,’ he said.”

“CNN did not respond to requests for comment by The Post.”

OH, REEEEALLY?!!!

Project Veritas is like the modern-day version of “Candid Camera,” only you’re not sympathetic for the person being caught on camera.

“During one of the meetings with his ‘date,’ Chester talked about how CNN also targeted anti-Trump voters by focusing on climate change, adding ‘fear sells.’”

Well, CNN must have been ecstatic about the pandemic!

‘“I think there’s a COVID fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN’s] going to latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is — will be open to it — we’re going to start focusing mainly on climate,’ Chester said.”

‘“It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be climate change awareness​,’ he added.”

Thanks for the “heads up,” Charlie…, I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that.

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, says the network’s goal was ‘to be climate change awareness​,’ following President Donald Trump’s election loss.”

‘“What’s that look like?’ Chester was asked.”

‘“I don’t know. I’m not sure. I have a feeling that it’s going to be like, constantly showing videos of decline in ice, and weather warming up, and like the effects it’s having on the economy​,’ Chester said.”

“​Asked who makes that decision, he said the ‘head of the network,’ referring to Jeff Zucker.”

‘“I imagine that he’s got his council and they’ve all like, discussed, like where they think​,​’​ he said​, trailing off.”

“He then said the new focus would be on a ​​‘p​andemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity.’​”

‘“​Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit,’ he said.​”

At the rate CNN is losing viewership, these days, CNN may not be around long enough to do much “milking.”

If anybody had any doubts about where CNN was coming from, I thinks those doubts have now all been laid to rest.
