More Lies and Betrayals

 

Remember when the mainstream media kept track of all of Pres. Trump’s “lies”? Every day the list grew longer, eventually to monumental proportions. It’s too bad the media isn’t interested in the really juicy stuff, such as the lies that the Biden Administration is telling about the COVID vaccines and its betrayal of Big Pharma.

It turns out that the Biden administration and 100 other countries are prepared to rip off the COVID vaccine producers based on a list of lies. After the incredible efforts that Pfizer and Moderna made to produce the vaccines, through Operation Warp Speed, they are now being told they need to give up their intellectual property and patents to save the world.

So what is the government’s “reasoning” for these demands? Here are some of their explanations and the supporting lies that they are espousing:

Join Jim and Greg as they get a kick out of President Biden celebrating a very meager goal in getting kids back in the classroom.  They also fume as Biden sides with the WHO in wanting to “pause” the patents for the companies that developed the vaccines in order to boost production. And they react to Democrats debating whether to remove Iowa and New Hampshire as the first caucus and primary states because they’re too white.

I have been a big vaccine enthusiast. Trump did an awesome job getting the pharmaceutical industry to create and produce vaccines in record time and in vast quantities. They are wonderfully effective. Both my wife and I are vaccinated despite the fact that we both had Covid last summer. It would be my hope that […]

Here is an interesting YouTube item from Deutsche Welle: Germans travel to Russia for Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccinations.  It’s news to me, anyway. I have no way of knowing if the U.S. hate media have already reported on it. It seems that Germans who can afford it are doing some medical tourism. They are frustrated […]

When Leaders Lie, Liberty Dies

Joe Biden, in a mumbling speech to an 88% empty chamber of congress the other night, declared that “America is on the move again.” Then why were Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris, both fully vaccinated, wearing masks behind him? Everyone in the room, 200 people we were told out of the customary 1,600 that would attend a normal presidential speech, was wearing a mask and ostentatiously distancing. All of them, presumably, are fully vaccinated.

Join Jim and Greg as they shred the blatantly partisan attempt by congressional Democrats to add four more seats (meaning lefties) to the U.S. Supreme Court but welcome House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing she has “no plans” to bring the bill up for a vote. They also react to the new polling showing a sharp drop in public confidence in the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine since the FDA ordered a pause this week. And they examine how Michigan’s COVID numbers are very high but interest in the vaccine is quite low.

I heard a segment on the radio today about last night’s 60 Minute’s episode that featured space age medical technology being developed by the U.S. Military.  I had no idea that they had a massive research lab containing countless disease and virus samples going back hundreds of years, including the Spanish flu. They’ve taken blood […]

Fauci Fully Vaccinated Against Criticism

 

Washington, DC – Dr. Anthony Fauci received his second vaccine dose today, which experts say will leave him fully immunized from criticism, fact-checks, or charges of not following The Science™. A spokesperson for the CDC said that Dr. Fauci, in an effort to avoid picking winners or losers among American pharmaceutical firms, chose a vaccine engineered by scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

After receiving his second injection in two weeks, Fauci was told by the woman administering his second dose that he may feel temporary pain or discomfort near the injection site. “Does that mean I shouldn’t come near this building?” said Fauci, an apparent attempt at humor which had reporters present outdoing one another with hysterical laughter and chants of “Give. Him. A. Raise.”

When asked by a reporter when we should expect the coronavirus pandemic to be over, Fauci quoted pre-med student John Blutarski: “Over? Did you say over? Nothing is over until we decide it is!” Fauci then gave reporters a thumbs-up sign, stated that he felt fine, and added that if all goes well Americans should be able to remove their second mask when home alone sometime by mid-October of 2022.

Join Greg and Chad Benson as they cheer a very good March jobs report, showing more 900,000 new jobs added last month. They also wade through the sordid allegations emerging against Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz and his counter-allegations that he the victim of an extortion attempt. And they react very strongly to Dr. Leanna Wen saying states should not open up yet because opening up should be conditional upon people getting vaccinated. She says, “Otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy these freedoms anyway.”

Chad Benson is in for Jim today. Join Greg and Chad as they discuss corporate America’s spineless response to yet another political controversy. They also take a deeper dive into Joe Biden’s effort to boost labor unions by crushing freelance work. They fume as Dr. Fauci and others suddenly decide kids now have to be vaccinated before life returns to normal, and they remember the fascinating and controversial life of the one and only G. Gordon Liddy.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the special congressional election win for Julia Letlow in Louisiana, as this impressive woman wins the seat her late husband won last year. They also cringe as Democrats plan to pass every agenda item possible through reconciliation, which would also render the Senate filibuster irrelevant. And Jim unloads on federal and state officials as barely half of the Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been administered three weeks after FDA approval.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer new polling showing that Cuban voters have swung dramatically back towards the Republican Party and strongly against the Obama-Biden approach to Cuba. Their jaws are also on the floor as New York voters want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to stay in office by a fairly wide margin and continue to think he’s done a great job handling the pandemic –  except for the thousands of nursing home deaths.  And Jim unloads on the notion of European sophistication as 15 countries suspend use of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Jim and Greg celebrate the influence of the 3 Martini Lunch as the New York State Assembly begins an impeachment investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo just one day after we asked why one had not begun. They also react to Pres. Biden’s COVID speech, with a special focus on his implication that his administration deserves the credit for vaccines and his weak goal of when things can open up again. And they have a lot of fun with the possibility of actor Matthew McConaughey running for governor of Texas.

Join Jim and Greg as they hammer the COVID relief provides very little COVID relief but hundreds of billions to irresponsible states and cities and political allies of the Democrats. They also throw up their hands as the CDC and Dr. Fauci are reluctant to let fully vaccinated people resume their lives. And Jim explains why the media ‘s hysterical coverage of Texas opening back up is way overblown.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss even more revelations from the New York nursing home scandal and former Cuomo staffers admitting that working for the governor was like being in a cult. Jim fumes as Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan refuses to accept the Johnson & Johnson vaccines and also because many states and school districts are not keeping track of how many teachers are getting vaccinated. They react to revelations that Barack Obama tried to talk Joe Biden out of running for president in 2020 and they get a kick out of learning the candidate Obama seems to have preferred.

Best Commentary I’ve Heard on Virus Management

 

I don’t have medical credentials, but some of what ZDoggMD says about mandates being “paternalistic” and about how our messaging could have been more along the lines of “here’s how you protect yourself” in a context of freedom aligns with what I have been thinking.

He says that instead of elected officials making rules about staying inside, people should have been encouraged to go to the beach, go hiking, do healthy things where there’s plenty of air circulation. We didn’t have to be in the mess we’re in now.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the Senate parliamentarian ruling that a minimum wage increase may not be included as part of the reconciliation process on a COVID relief bill. Jim updates the lingering problems as vaccines are being administered far slower than they are being produced. And they’re getting nervous as the last Senate Republican who could save the Neera Tanden nomination agrees to a one-on-one meeting with her.

Fauci: “Nothing stops. Or am I being obtuse?”

 

The nation’s highest paid federal employee issued a stern warning to all Americans on Monday, stating that the long-awaited vaccines against COVID-19 won’t alter the long-term necessity of masks, school closures, lockdowns, and social distancing measures.

Responding to a question from a reporter about the possibility of relaxing restrictions once a majority of Americans have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, Dr. Fauci replied “Nothing stops. Nothing! Or you will do the hardest time there is. No more protections from the Bill of Rights. I’ll pull you out of that one-bunk Hilton and cast you down with the New York nursing home residents. Wearing a mask is too onerous? I’ll make you wear three – and throw in a charcoal filter just for giggles.”
