THE COLUMN: Here Comes Da Bug

They never stop, they never sleep, they never quit.

Just in time for back-to-school, not to mention the start of the 2024 presidential primaries, the drabs and trollops of the Corporate Media have begun beating the drums for the Biden regime and the CDC/Big Pharma shills to announce the Return of the Black Death, aka Covid. If you liked the Covid Hoax the first time, you're going to love the redux. The Thing that Destroyed the Trump Administration, ruined our election system, smashed the American economy, wiped out two or three years of schooling, and effectively repealed the First Amendment -- not because of disease, mind you, but via bureaucratic fiat -- now wants back in our lives.  

Boo, again.

Unfazed by data, scientific research, or common sense, the maskaholics are back. In response to an uptick in Covid cases, they’ve begun reinstating mask mandates. So far, it’s just a few places—a college in Atlanta, a Hollywood studio, two hospitals in Syracuse—but the mainstream media and their favorite “experts” are working hard to scare the rest of us into masking up yet again.

Never mind that at least 97 percent of Americans have Covid antibodies in their blood as a result of infection, vaccination, or both. Never mind that actual experts—the ones who studied the scientific literature before 2020 and drew up plans for a pandemic—advised against masking the public. Never mind that their advice has been further bolstered during the pandemic by randomized clinical trials and rigorous observational studies failing to find an effect of masks and mask mandates. Scientific evidence cannot overcome the maskaholics’ faith.

In case you've forgotten what a monstrous lie the Great Covid Hoax of 2019-2022 was, and how assiduously it was pushed by the Corporate Media, here's a handy reminder of what congenital whores and liars the American media establishment have become:

Well, the hell with that. As I wrote back in May: "the constitutional provisions of the First Amendment were trampled and trashed, a police state that was just itching to happen finally came out into the open, American churches capitulated to governmental demands, a sizable portion of the population voluntarily or involuntarily masked themselves like coolies, and then turned on the their fellow but non-compliant citizens in a fury born of fear to rat them out to the authorities. The booming economy promptly tanked. Trust in the electoral system evaporated. Race relations cratered. The courts, of course, did nothing. It was and remains the single most disgraceful moment in the history of this country."

The first rumblings started a few weeks ago, but now have mutated into a steady murmur. Like the wannabe screenwriters they at heart are, the media hacks start by planting an idea, gently nourishing it through the rumor stage, spread it around to other outlets to create the illusion of a trend, then start quoting each other to give the story "independent corroboration," and then, like the chestburster in Alien, joyously proclaim its arrival:

We shall see; Alex Jones is hardly a reliable source. Still, some doctors are already decrying the possibility:

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo harshly criticized COVID-19 mask mandates and lockdowns, and urged people to consider "refusing to participate. What do you call re-imposing mask policies that have been proven ineffective or restarting lockdowns that are known to cause harm? You don't call it sanity," Dr. Ladapo posted last week on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. "These terrible policies only work with your cooperation. How about refusing to participate…"

Well, how about it? As before (and thanks to the media) the media fearmongers are conflating "cases" with almost certain doom in order to make the populace more ovine and to turn the nation's beta males and women into shrieking hysterics. As we've learned the hard way, the "death rate" from Covid is basically the same as the seasonal flu, especially for the elderly and those with comorbidities, and there's no reason to panic.

The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that COVID-related hospitalizations hit more than 12,600 during the week ending Aug. 12, up 21.6% from the previous week, but it is still far below the high of more than 150,000 in January 2022. Research scientist Dr. Robert Malone told Just the News last week that he is against implementing further COVID-19 mandates. "I personally believe that this is more fear porn. It's not justified," Malone told Just the News, claiming the lockdown measures were "illegal" in the first place "in terms of breaching of fundamental freedoms. There's absolutely no evidence that there's going to be a need to reimpose" restrictions, he added.

Tomorrow never dies.

No medical evidence, certainly; there never was. But Covid was never about health; it was always about control. Its invention by Wuhan Institute of Virology, aided and abetted by one of the great monsters of American history, Anthony Fauci, was the perfect weapon against the American Republic. It didn't kill anybody who wasn't going to die in the first place, but it did deal a mortal blow to the Constitution, the economy, the Trump presidency, and Americans' sense of their own self-reliance and resilience. 

In an already overly-feminized society, it forced the citizenry even further into the arms of Big Government, to the point where there is no issue of public policy or interest that does not include Washington as the court of first resort. Who would have conceived half a century ago that the president of the United States would come to rule by fiat, issuing edicts and ukases under the guise of "executive orders," ordering a supine and spineless Congress to spend money it doesn't have and has no right to, firing up the printing presses to devalue the currency, throwing open the borders to apparently limitless "immigration" by millions of unvetted and  medically unexamined people from Third World countries whose standards of health care are, shall we say, primitive? At Ellis Island, no matter how tired, poor, or yearning to breathe free you were, if you had tuberculosis you went right back on the boat to the Old Country.

Last Friday, the ever-vacationing Biden announced he was requesting more money in order to develop yet another "vaccine" in his continuing and quixotic attempt to Kellogg-Briand a bug that laughs at face diapers.

People should be able to start rolling up their sleeves next month for what officials hope is an annual fall COVID-19 shot. Pfizer, Moderna and smaller manufacturer Novavax all are brewing doses of the XBB update but the Food and Drug Administration will have to sign off on each, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must then issue recommendations for their use.

Said the doddering octogenarian: “I signed off this morning on a proposal we have to present to the Congress a request for additional funding for a new vaccine that is necessary, that works." 

Now he tells us.

  1. If the worst happens, let's hope fervently that Americans in vast numbers refuse to comply. As an unvaxxed person, shunned for a time, I have made my own personal resolution to go to jail, rather than comply, if the virus hysteria comes again to Australia. These people are simply lunatics, if they're not evil incarnate.
