The corruption in our federal government is now so widespread and venal that its agencies don’t even try to disguise their violations of the people’s trust anymore … for they know that our justice system is even more fetid. — a saddened Fletcher

Poliics

 


Politics has invaded history, science, entertainment, race relations, sports, business, even ice cream… just about everything these days. It’s like an acrid fog enveloping  the world … all because an orange-haired prophet briefly did the impossible and drove the elite money-changers from the temple of government.


Then they, the elite, shout, “This cannot stand!” And are trying to destroy the temple rather than cede it to the unwashed just.

How would you like to be one of the five Republican representatives nominated by Kevin McCarthy to be on Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th Panel … who has not been one of the two rejected for “threatening the integrity of the investigation?” Exactly how would this help your reelection chances?

I can’t help but wonder if those book publishers which give lavish and unrealistic advances to authors who never do come close to selling enough books to cover this cost (e.g., Andrew Cuomo)  … I wonder if they ever cover these losses in some other manner?

Justice Disparity

 


Kind reader, have you noticed the disparity between how justice is meted out on the right (Capitol “invasion,” General Flynn) versus on the left (Lafayette Park anarchy and other Antifa, BLM riots, looting, arsons and attacks on the police in Portland, Minneapolis, NYC, Atlanta, LA, etc.)? if not, you sorely need to become better informed.

Joe Blow 2.0


Americans should be ashamed of ourselves for electing the corrupt Marxist Joe Biden as our leader. The only solace I have regarding this catastrophe is that his election fraud was orchestrated by his posse … “we have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in history of American politics.”


Truer words?


This gives a degree of hope that not all of America is in the ditch.

The Jab Update (Updated)

 


As of mid-July 56% of adult Americans, or 185 million people above the age of 12, have had at least on, shot of Covid vaccine … see: Bloomberg Vaccination Data.


And according to the CDC’s Vaccine Averse Effects Reporting System … which they make crystal clear is a voluntary reporting system that has not been independently verified … there have been over 463 thousand reported incidents of vaccine side effects … anywhere from tinnitus to death … see: CDC VAERS Summary. Although there have been possibly almost 11 thousand reported deaths, this is still a small fraction of the vaccinations (0.013% or 1 in every 17,000.)


And although the odds for any averse effect may be 1 in every 400, this still seems a reasonable risk to take given the alternative.


Afterward: Is this why our Covid vaccines still only have CDC’s emergency -use authorizations?


Afterward: The CDC now says that the vaccine reported deaths were in error … see: Undercurrents post
