The History and Future of Covid-19

With the rising number of cases of Covid-19 across the United States and other parts of the world. We are feeling the impact again of mandatory masks and lockdowns.

There is a vaccine on the horizon, in fact there are two of them. Both developed in by American companies in the United States. And these should be available by the end of the year.

But this does not mean that the government will step aside and allow us to have our Liberty again. No they have seen how easily it is to control the masses of useful idiots. And once the government has something in it’s control. They never give it up willingly.

The faithful mask wearing cultists all think that if everyone just complied the Covid-19 pandemic would be over. But they are fools who believe all the fear they are taught.

Yet they fail to listen to what their experts are actually saying.

Doctor Fauci has stated on multiple occasions that wearing masks wont end even after the wide-spread distribution of a Covid-19 vaccine.

Mr. Biden’s chosen Covid-19 advisor has also stated the same and has gone even further. He says that the vaccine would be distributed to other parts of the world before it would be distributed in the United States. He even advocates that it shouldn’t be given to anyone older than 75 because they are useless. Thus he is advocating the death of all seniors 75 years of age or older who will not be given the Covid-19 vaccine.

Even with the vaccine. There will still be lockdowns, mandatory masks. Limits on gatherings and suppression of the free press and speech of those who disagree with such policies. These measures are already being enforced. As the government continues to take away God-given Rights. Including suppressing the Church and the body of Believers and the freedom to worship as we see fit.

This power grab by the government is all done in the name of safety. The battle cry of tyrants everywhere. And there are always those who will quietly submit without question to the dictates of the power hungry.

It has been said many times that if one does not remember or learn from history that they are doomed to repeat it. And here and now history is repeating itself. As most have forgotten history already and how tyrants rise to power.

Even our Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin, stated that those who give up essential Liberty to obtain temporary safety deserve neither Liberty nor safety.

I pray that there is still those who remember. And those who can stop the tide before it is too late.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

After the Associated Press called the 2020 election for Joe Biden, the Left wet themselves with joy (and I hope it was just tears). As soon as the fireworks were set off, the spreader events…I mean street parties, and other celebrations wound down, the Left then started demanding President Donald Trump concede the election and start a smooth transition period. You know, like the Left did when President Trump was elected.

Okay, bad example.

While we’re trying to sort through questions like whether Twitter will consider “Not My President” hate speech, few people are considering what a transition looks and feels like. And, as you might expect, the Left has a completely different mindset when it comes to transitions.

transition of power

What the Left thinks it means – a tradition where an outgoing President paves the way for an incoming President to hit the ground running

What it really means – holding Republican Presidential staffs to standards Democrat Presidential staffs can’t meet

Politics is an ugly game, especially in these hyper-partisan times. I’ve seen family Monopoly games end more amicably than recent elections and with fewer lawsuits. And after 4+ years of the Left demonizing the President, his family, his staff, his supporters, and anyone even tangentially related to the Trump family or campaign, any transition of power is going to be more like a hostage negotiation than a handing off of a baton.

In recent history, one party has been responsible and without malice when handing over the keys to the White House to its new inhabitants. And the other party is the Democrats. Whether it was taking White House furniture, removing the W keys off keyboards or spying on the incoming President, the Left has been petty when it comes to transitions, so when they demand a smooth transition for Joe Biden, it rings hollow for me.

The reasons for the Left’s call for civility after their lack of said civility over the past few years come down to holding President Trump to their standard, using it as a pseudo-concession, and scoring a political win without spending political capital to obtain it. Let’s break these down one at a time.

One of the Left’s favorite strategy guides is Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky. One of the tenets is “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” In this case, the Left has set the demand Trump follow the precedent of previous Republican Presidents and submit. And the President has done what any Republican President in his place has done: ignore them. (Okay, only some of them would have told the Left to take a hike, but we can dream.) The more President Trump defies the Left’s demands, the more vocal the demands become. It’s like having a Judas Priest concert in the Grand Canyon.

Because President Trump has yet to concede, the Left are trying to manipulate him into a half-measure they can spin into a concession. If Trump starts the transition phase right now, the Left can then say he conceded, even though he hasn’t really. That will go a long way toward getting popular opinion on their side because many people think Biden is or should be acting President right now, but that’s to be expected by a culture that made Cardi B popular.

And the best part of this for the Left is they don’t lose any political capital making these demands. As of this writing, the House is barely in Democrat control and Senate control hasn’t been completely decided yet. After wasting money and political capital to unseat Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and fail, the Left needs to keep their eyes on what they can and cannot afford to use to fulfill their objectives. Right now, all the Left has to do is keep telling President Trump to concede or at least start the transfer of power to Joe Biden and it doesn’t cost them anything but time and energy.

In spite of all this, the Left hasn’t gotten Trump to budge because he’s not like past Republicans. He has his own set of rules and norms, which has infuriated people on the Left and the Right because they don’t agree with his approach. It also means he isn’t bound to their expectations. When they say “jump” Trump tells them to jump in a lake, although probably not in those words nor as nicely as I put it. Although this approach has made him less popular than Gretchen Witmer at a Michigan NRA meeting, it has shown an independent streak the Left doesn’t know how to handle. They love diversity, except when it comes to diversity of thought. Free will is a Leftist’s worst nightmare, so they will try to coerce compliance whenever possible.

Needless to say that hasn’t worked with President Trump.

Regardless of who takes up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue come January 20th, the transition tradition is going to look and feel different going forward. Republican Presidents may be more emboldened (hey, I can dream, can’t I) to treat the Left like the Left has treated Republicans during previous transitions of power, but something tells me they’ll be adults about it. Meanwhile, Leftists are going to continue to use the process to say one thing and do another for political ends.

In other words, acting like they do on any day ending in a Y.

The Socialist Utopia

If Biden Harris becomes President in 2021 we can expect a few kept promises from the campaign. The first promise is to repeal the Trump tax cuts.

So your taxes and mine will be going up. Not just the taxes on the so-called rich who make over 400k a year, this is a fantasy the Left wants the useful idiots to believe, and they do. Biden Harris will not pay a die more in their own taxes.

The next promise is to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord. This of course will cause an increase in taxes. And the loss of manufacturing jobs and businesses that President Trump got to return to the United States. These jobs and business would again leave the country.

On the minor covid19 issue. It would be blown even more out of proportion. Mandatory mask mandate nationwide. Mandatory lockdowns nation wide. This of course creates a multitude of problems. Businesses permanently closing. Fortunes lost. Jobs lost. Mental health issues will continue to skyrocket in the areas of anxiety, depression, and isolation. And suicides will increase even more. The Leftist cure is worse than the disease.

Biden Harris will apologize to Iran and remove the sanctions placed by President Trump on this rogue state. And Iran will take advantage of this renewed blindness to their evil and become a nuclear threat in the Middle East and beyond.

Israel will be hardest hit. Biden Harris will not be a friend of Israel, our only real ally in the Middle East region. Israel could see sanctions and loss of funding from the United States. And continued antisemitism that the Left is famous for and it will also increase.

North Korea will become a powder keg once again. Without President Trump’s leadership and his attempts to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula, Kim Jung-un will have no choice but to return to his hardline stances and weapon testing and the production of nuclear capable weapon platforms. His country will demand it and he wont have the United States President as a friend. Kim Jung-un will either have to become hardline or he will be assassinated and replaced by someone who will completely destabilize the Pacific Rim.

Biden Harris plans on ending oil production in the United States. Currently under President Trump, the United States is a world EXPORTER of oil and energy. And for the first time in many decades, the United States is energy independent. Under Biden Harris, the United States would lose 10’s of millions of jobs if the oil industry is ended. And we would become dependent on other countries for our energy and many oil based goods. See https://bynw.com/biden-ends-oil/ for a partial list of products that would be impacted. This policy would raise the cost of all of these products. On top of the lost jobs and higher taxes that will happen.

The ObamaCare mandate will be reinstated by Biden Harris. And they will work hard at destroying the private insurance market moving all Americans into government ran healthcare. The very reason why so many foreigners come to the United States to get good quality private care will be gone.

These are just the tips of the iceberg that awaits America in the Biden Harris Socialist Utopia. The end of Liberty, the end of freedom, the end of American Exceptionalism, the end of the Republic.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Before I begin, I have a question I’d like an answer to. Who requested a 2000 rerun?

Although there were many winners and losers from this year’s elections, there is one group who definitely fall into the latter category: pollsters. You could swing a dead cat (and, really, why would you) and hit a pollster whose can’t-miss election predictions based on research was so appallingly bad TV meteorologists were saying, “Hey! That’s our schtick!”

Now, if this were the first time the polls were wrong, I could perhaps forgive the people who put them together and say they were having a 2020. Unfortunately for them, this isn’t the first time. If anything, the only consistency they showed was how wrong they’ve been. Yet, people outside of the polling industry based decisions on where to go and how hard to campaign based on these numbers which swung wilder than Charlie Sheen. Let’s take a look at the wonderful world of pollsters.

pollsters

What the Left thinks it means – people who review numbers to create charts and graphics showing trends so people get an understanding of what is going on in a political race

What it really means – people willing to take your money and provide you with crap while knowing they will keep their jobs

When done right, polling can be an important and useful tool, and pollsters know this. What they don’t seem to know anymore is how to do polling right. Everything from sampling errors to confusing questions have rendered pollsters more useless than a second appendix. Even between pollsters, there are different methodologies and strategies at work, which create wide swings in the numbers. At any given time, a candidate could be up by 200 points or down by a gajillion. (Sorry to have to bust out the math jargon there, but it was necessary to prove the point.) Granted, the pollsters don’t share call lists, but the point remains there is no consistency in what numbers are produced.

Now, our friends in the media don’t care about the accuracy of the polling numbers for two reasons: 1) the accuracy isn’t as important as the horserace element of an election, and 2) they suck at math. The latter isn’t in question because any media type who still considers Paul Krugman to be credible has to suck at math or at least suck at making value judgments. That leaves the horserace.

The news game is funny in that it mostly relies on misery for ratings, which translate into money. Lately, even hard news has given way to celebrity worship and mixed celebrity with misery. Instead of worrying about whether the news they’re putting out is at least somewhat accurate, the media are now straight out of Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry.” Under these circumstances, the need for accuracy takes a back seat to the need for ratings. Polling creates a buzz during election season across the board, whether it be Fox News or MSNBC. By focusing on the horserace, the media don’t have to do any actual work because that’s done by, guess who, the pollsters. All the media have to do then is take the pollsters’ work and report on it. Then, it’s a matter of Blather, Rinse, Repeat to continue the buzz until Election Day.

Then, there’s the donkey in the room: ideology. Most people in the media are Leftists, which means polling takes on an air of authority since there are hard numbers involved. After all, we’ve been taught to accept majority rules, even if we don’t understand how the majority became the majority. What better way to convince people the Left is, well, right?

Without getting too far into the weeds, the effectiveness of polls relies on a number of factors, including the number of people polled, what method is being used to get the results, and how confident the pollsters are that the results accurately reflect what the rest of the population believes. If any of these factors go pear-shaped, the results aren’t going to be reliable. Let’s just say media polling loves pear shapes. A lot.

Outside of becoming pollsters ourselves, we don’t have a lot of options on how to combat pollsters and the misinformation they peddle. One thing I can suggest, however, is to not put much stock in the polls. And that means not to put much stock in pollsters.

Given how inaccurate polls have been in the past 20+ years, I don’t think that will be too hard to do.

It’s Been Called

It’s been called. And we knew it would be called this way. The Leftist propaganda ministry, commonly referred to as the mainstream media. Has called Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.

However, votes haven’t been certified or fully tallied yet. There are recounts in multiple states. Federal investigators are looking into massive amounts of voter fraud in key battleground and Democratic controlled states. Software errors have been discovered in some states that gave Biden votes that should have been Trump votes.

And there is ongoing litigation in these same Democratic controlled battleground states. So no CNN. This isn’t over yet. It’s been 20 years since there was a contested election and that was just with one state involed in the result. So here we have at least 4 states. That took over a month to resolve and went to the Supreme Court.

This is not the first election that the Left has instituted voter fraud. But it is the first election where it has happened on a massive and blatant scale. The Left was not able to comprehend how the 2016 election was loss. They tried for 4 years to remove a duly elected President and failed. So then came the 2020 election. And they resolved to send a clear message. And in doing so they have shown their true colors.

I hope and pray that the recounts and the fraud is shown to the world. And that the litigation overturns the fraudulent results of this sham election. And that Donald Trump remains in office for the next 4 years.

It Reeks

There is no transparency in our election process. Ballots mysteriously come from no where without proof that they were actually submitted by a living verifiable voter.

No postmark showing it was mailed before the deadline. No voter signature for a voter of record. No stamps or seals showing it was hand delivered when voting early. And nothing showing it was a ballot from Election Day that just got misplaced. Nothing that can be verified by all parties.

Just an elections clerk stating that they have found 1000’s of more ballots without verification in the middle of the night. And all of them are just for 1 candidate. Why are all of these found ballots only for 1 candidate?

This reeks of voter fraud.

Tell me honestly any Democrat voter that reads this. If suddenly overnight, with no transparency, 1000’s of ballots turned up in multiple states that were all for President Trump and none for Biden. Would you accept that as being normal and OK? Seriously answer the question.

I bet you would not. I bet you would be demanding a recount and transparency in the process. And even litigation would be filed through the courts.

And there would be rioting, arson, looting, and other violence in those cities that found these extra Trump votes as well.

But here we have only extra Biden votes being found. There is the cry for transparency and recounts. There is litigation being filed in the courts.

But there are no riots, arson, looting, or other violence in any of these cities due to finding more Biden votes.

This election isn’t over. And it may not be over in time for the Electoral College to meet and cast their votes for President. This election may be decided by the Supreme Court and solid evidence of voter fraud continues to grow.

Election Fraud

The evidence of fraud taking place in the 2020 Presidential Election is overwhelming. Reported across multiple media sources and social media as well before it gets taken down by the current tech giants. It is plain as day.

From the media reporting different results from the official election results being reported by the various Secretaries of State on their websites to the videos and photos being released by poll watchers across the nation.

We see the tampering of ballots. We see manual voter registrations being entered to the the voter rolls on election day of people born in 1900 or even 1824.

We find that our overseas military absentee ballots have been dumped into the trash. And mail-in ballots being accepted without postmarks.

We see voters given Sharpies to mark ballots with instead of regular ink pens. Since voting machines can’t read Sharpies these votes aren’t counted but the ballot is accepted and marked as read. We see voting machines not properly filled with ink in a strong Republican district.

Poll watchers were removed from some polling places after they noted irregularities. and illegal activity being conducted. Some were removed when they took the evidence on camera that we are seeing being presented as evidence.

And these are just the tip of the iceberg of the fraud that is being carried out in the 2020 election. This a coup by election fraud. If Biden wins it will be because he cheated and the Democratic Party is corrupt at its very core. And the whole world will know it.

But thankfully there is a fix in the works. Vortex Blockchain Technologies will prevent voter fraud like this from ever happening again. But until that day comes we may have to endure 4 years of a Harris Administration and loss of Liberty.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

The election is days away as of this blog post (check local listings for further details), so it’s getting to be crunch time for both the Trump/Pence and Biden/Harris campaigns. As you may expect, voter turnout is going to be more important than knowing when the cut off Joe Biden during a live speech. That’s why both Democrats and Republicans have Get Out the Vote, or GOTV, efforts. On their faces, it makes sense.

And if you’re expecting a “But” here, you are correct. The efforts may be rooted in good strategy, but in practice…well, let’s just say there is a history of abuse from people of a certain ideology who think the ends justify the means. But let’s give it a fair hearing.

And by fair, I mean let’s rip on the Left for a while.

GOTV

What the Left thinks it means – efforts to ensure as many people as possible vote

What it really means – efforts to ensure as many people as possible vote for Leftists

Yes, I know Democrats and Republicans have GOTV campaigns. Where the two parties diverge is how far they’re willing to go to get votes. In recent years, we have seen Democrats use the following tactics

– voter intimidation
– bribery in the form of a sweepstakes
– paying people to vote for Democrats
– giving people free meals
– having campaign helpers go into nursing homes to fill out ballots for them
– attempting to register people for absentee ballots who didn’t even live in the area

Not to be outdone, here is the lowdown, dirty things Republicans did with their GOTV efforts:

– told voters to vote

Those monsters!

If you noticed, there seems to be a lot more dishonesty on the part of the Left when it comes to GOTV, which says a lot about their character, none of it good. Why would they have to resort to underhanded tactics if they have the votes to win? After all, don’t they say “When we vote, we win”?

They’re hedging their bets.

The Left lost its collectivist mind when Donald Trump won in 2016 because he was able to overcome the tactics referenced above, as well as a behind-the-scenes effort by our friend Uncle George Soros to put Leftists into state-level positions responsible for counting the votes cast. Now, with the push for voting by mail being amplified by Facebook, ads from jeans companies, and other entities, it creates an environment where GOTV efforts can sway the election in favor of the Left.

Then, the Democrats nominated Joe Biden, who has been gafferrific leading up to Election Day. That decision alone isn’t enough to hand the Left another well-deserved defeat, but it puts extra importance on the GOTV efforts. If they can get enough people to vote, they may be able to overwhelm the number of Trump voters to pull off a victory, and with the other safeguards they have in place, it is a real possibility.

But therein lies the flaw in their strategy. One of the traits I’ve found in Trump voters is their loyalty. All Trump needs to do is tell people to vote (which he has) and they will turn out in droves. His rallies are as well-attended as an all you can eat buffet on the way to a Weight Watchers meeting, and they are unapologetic in their support for the President. Add to that the number of people outside of the GOP willing to vote for Trump, and you have the Achilles heel of the Left’s GOTV strategy. You can’t win an election if you don’t have the votes.

And as we’ve seen in Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and other places across the country, the Left have no problem suppressing some votes and manufacturing others. But that’s a whole different blog post altogether.

The point is GOTV efforts are great at energizing the base to vote, but they can be weaponized by those willing to break a few election laws to get a Leftist into office. But I’m totally not saying Leftists would do that. To accuse Leftists of cheating, lying, and manipulating potential voters like utter scumbags is the last thing on my mind. In fact, let me go on the record as saying I will not even consider the idea the Left would stoop to dishonest tactics to try to save face after Donald Trump whupped their collectivist asses in 2016.

I won’t consider it because it’s pretty much true.

Biden ends Oil

At the last Presidential Debate, Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for President of the United States said he would end the oil industry in the United States if he became President. Currently under President Donald Trump, the United States is a world oil exporter and the country has become energy independent for the first time in my lifetime.

But under the Biden plan, the oil industry would come to a close in the United States. Millions of Americans would be out of work. We would have to import all of our oil products from other oil producing nations. Many of which are hostile to the United States and the concepts of Liberty and Freedom.

All drilling of oil would cease. All fracking would cease. Even on privately held land. Now some may say this is a good thing. But it really isn’t because the cost of doing everyday business would skyrocket and the American consumer, you and me, would have to pay for it.

Just so you really understand. Here is a partial list of all products made from oil which would have to be imported into the United States under a Joe Biden Presidency. And we would be paying the cost to get it to our shores.

As you can see oil is very important to everything and everybody. Without it and without using our own local sources and refining at home. It will cost 100’s of thousands of jobs and the cost of goods will rise out of control making many unobtainable by most families.

But of course a President Joe Biden will still have his luxury SUV and still travel across the country and world by plane. We the people wont be so lucky unless you are part of the elite ruling class. Welcome to the new age of serfdom and peasants.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Out of the three Presidential shitshows…I mean debates, the last one was the best, partially because of the quality of the questions asked, and mostly because of the answers the candidates gave in response to said questions. One of the most intriguing questions surrounded energy policy, specifically oil. Joe Biden’s flip flops on whether he wanted to get rid of the oil industry as a whole made for must-miss television.

For the past few decades, the Left has had its sights on the oil industry and attempted to make it seem like Hitler, but less cuddly. Whether it’s blaming them for global warming/cooling/climate change/whatever it’s called this week or painting them as soulless money grubbers more cartoonish than a Captain Planet villain, the Left is all-in for getting rid of oil if at all possible. And, to be fair, oil companies haven’t always been worthy of protection from bad PR, but are they as bad as they seem? Let’s find out!

the oil industry

What the Left believes it means – an industry that pollutes and destroys the environment for profit, needs to be eliminated as a source of energy

What it really means – an industry that has become more indispensable than we realize

What do you think of when someone mentions oil? I’m guessing it’s either fuel or oil in general. Well, surprise surprise, that’s what the Left thinks of, too! Although it’s not wrong, it’s not the whole picture. Those evil petroleum barons make everything from plastics to Plexiglass. You know, just like the barriers used at the last Presidential debate?

But it goes beyond that. There are industries that are currently oil-dependent for their survival. Farming, transport, construction, these and many more require an oil industry presence for them to do anything. And last time I checked, we kinda need food to survive.

“Well, then we’ll use alternate fuel sources,” Leftists say. In fact, that’s their solution for everything. Replace fossil fuels, like oil, with wind or solar or other alternative energy sources. I’d like to see them put a windmill on a tractor for the sheer comedy value, but it belies the issue with the Left’s position on oil: they don’t understand enough about it to make an informed decision.

Shocking, I know.

In their rush to do a cut and paste energy policy, the Left overlooks the fact machinery requires lubrication and fuel. Right now, the bulk of the machinery uses oil-based products to make them move. It would like millions of dollars to retool existing or new equipment to meet the Left’s standards, but without some form of lubrication, the equipment makes nice paperweights, albeit expensive ones. You could try to use plant-based oils, but you will wind up smelling like you bathe in fry medium. Granted, this might make Leftists more appealing to fast food connoisseurs, but only because they think you might be able to score them some free food.

On the fuel front, the fossil fuel and even the biofuel versions have an advantage over solar and wind in that they can work in any type of weather. Let’s say you have a semi-truck that works on a rechargeable solar battery. It works great when there’s sunlight, right? What happens overnight? With current solar battery life, there are going to be more than a few stranded drivers waiting until the dawn, thus slowing down deliveries of everything from food to supplies. Prices will skyrocket, there will be shortages that can’t be addressed in a timely manner, and it might turn Main Street into one big CHAD/CHOP compound.

But…lower carbon footprint?

Let’s be honest here. Oil isn’t going away anytime soon, and no amount of Leftist wishful thinking will make it happen any sooner without massive infrastructure and technological changes we haven’t tried to make yet and the Left hasn’t figured out we need. The “Party of Science” everybody! Put simply, we need the oil industry to function until we can find a replacement, so the Left is putting the cart before the horse, literally.

Aside from that, the oil industry is a Leftist target because it’s playing the same game the Left has been playing by putting out research to support its position on global warming/cooling/climate disaster/whatever they’re calling it this paragraph. Granted, this is as fucked up as letting Jeffrey Dahmer give you food prep tips, but considering the oil industry’s science is as unbiased as the Left’s, it’s pretty much a wash.

However, it’s not the science that offends the Left in this case; it’s the fact the oil industry isn’t backing down from Leftist pressure. They are combating science with science, as junky as the science may be, and not apologizing for what they do. The Left have to be bullies to get their way, so when someone tells them to go piss up a rope, they don’t take it well. In fact, they work towards destroying anyone and anything that defies them.

You know, like what they’ve been doing for the past few decades?

As badly as the oil industry has screwed up (the Exxon Valdez and BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico come immediately to mind), they are a hell of a lot more useful than the Left is. That doesn’t mean we can’t hold them to task for screw-ups, nor does it mean we shouldn’t be looking for ways to improve our energy policy or find new ways to use the resources we currently use. What it does mean is the Left hasn’t done enough homework to justify completely weaning the country from oil right now.

Maybe that’s why Joe Biden’s position on the oil industry is so disjointed. Naaaaaaaaaah!
