2020




















All the other "pots" are calling the "kettle" black




Comment from reader Jeffrey in Huntsville:


It’s a violation of the President’s 4th amendment right of privacy “of personal effects and papers.” Especially his income BEFORE he took office.  If the IRS is satisfied with his previous returns, it should end there.

I just checked Wikipedia, Nancy Pelosi is worth almost 60 million dollars! … and more than a dozen other congressmen are worth even more than her, so go investigate THEIR corrupt income that they earned while IN OFFICE. BTW, I learned from wiki that she comes from a very old and long line of Italian politicians that owned several Baltimore, Maryland political seats that stinks of the Italian MOB. After the Italians’ revered Christopher Columbus statue was thrown into the Baltimore harbor last week, she said she “doesn’t care much about statues, … the people are gonna do what they do.” 

Mornin'!



 Make sure you have plenty of coffee. You don't want to fall asleep too early and miss FFF...











Scrolling The News... Hmmm, Here's an interesting headline...


Researchers: Mass. residents leaving home almost as much as before pandemic




 That's interesting I wonder how the "researchers" are getting their data? *sips coffee continues reading.

BOSTON — John Husson made sure his mask was on tight while throwing soft toss to his young daughter at Billings Field in West Roxbury.
Her travel league softball team is scheduled to begin games in Massachusetts and New Hampshire next week.
“We’re not quite as fearful, still a little bit fearful, but not nearly as bad,” Husson said about traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Blah blah blah start off with a touchy feely lead-in.  



It seems a lot of our anxiety about leaving the house evaporated in the summer heat, and geolocation data from our cell phones support that theory. 

Oh really?

“We’ve seen mobility going up across the country fairly gradually,” Mike Warren said.
Warren is the co-founder of Descartes Labs, a New Mexico research company that uses our geolocation data to measure mobility--or how far we travel from home on a typical day--during the pandemic.

and I'm sure teh gov ain't invested somehow, right?

The data shows Massachusetts mobility is back to 75 or 80 percent of what it was before the pandemic, according to Warren.

“We can see in some other states is actually back up to 100 percent or even larger,” Warren said.


The good news for all of us is that the number of COVID-19 cases continues to trend downward in Massachusetts, even as our travel ramps back up.

But Warren can’t explain why the number of cases have exploded in other parts of the country, like Florida and Arizona, even though the data shows their mobility is roughly the same as Massachusetts.
“Something is different. Is it because more people are indoors now because it’s been hot and you’re just breathing recirculated air conditioned air? Or are people wearing masks more consistently in places where the outbreak was more serious early on? We just don’t know,” Warren said.
Descartes Labs also provided a state-by-state breakdown of travel in the northeast that shows Vermonters are traveling the most in July.

Massachusetts and New York residents are venturing out the least, according to the graph.


Warren said the data they collect is already anonymized, and there’s no way Descartes Labs can trace it to an individual or their phone numbers.

*cough *cough...bullshit




“We additionally have some other policies to make sure that any of the data we produce couldn’t be combined with the data other people have in order to track an individual,” Warren said. 


Ya.. ok.

Ticks.



After more than three months of shutdowns, mandatory quarantines, self-imposed exile from society and working from home, nature-lovers looking for a well-earned breath of fresh air could face a possible collision course between coronavirus and tick-borne illnesses this summer.

A "perfect storm," warns Eva Sapi, a University of New Haven biology professor and group director for the Lyme Disease Research Group.

Noting the mild winter on the East Coast, Sapi says, "We do have a bad year for the ticks."
Hikers, campers and anyone else eager for an escape could "just explode into the outdoors. And there may not be the same thoughtful approach" to preventing exposure, explains Dr. Sorana Segal-Maurer, director of the Dr. James J. Rahal, Jr. Division of Infectious Diseases at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens health care system.

“How could the CDC make that mistake? This is a mess.”



I know everyone is getting really sick and tired fucking fed up with this corona virus and the countless numbers of inconsistencies. 

According to GATEWAY PUNDIT

The CDC is over counting the number of China coronavirus cases in an apparent effort to keep the country shut down throughout the summer.  This fraudulent activity was uncovered by the far-left Atlantic proving even a dead clock is right twice a day. 

Follow the links to

The Atlantic <

Forbes<

Even the NYT noted the GAO's report.



*********************************

Along the line how they are reporting cases, I saw this post about Texas on twitter:









 We are seeing spikes in multiple states including Texas. Could this be part of the reason?


Someone corroborated the above tweet in the comments and posted this video:  (Back in May, there were new criteria issued in Texas for counting cases.)









It is also corroborated in this article >>  TEXAS SCORECARD <<<

Snip/


North Texas officials are warning changes in how the state defines and reports cases of the Chinese coronavirus could “significantly and artificially” spike local case totals, creating false alarm as Texas begins to reopen for business.
Collin County Judge Chris Hill advised residents this weekend the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) will begin reporting “probable” COVID-19 cases in addition to “confirmed” cases.
Texas is also expanding its criteria for defining “probable” cases, as well as COVID-related deaths.

I can think of several more "entitlements" to add to this list (i.e. free education, healthcare, having $2,000 worth of visible tattoos , gold teeth, and other "bling", etc.)

It is time to cut the purse strings of those who hate America and take every opportunity to loot, deface, and destroy what others have built while on the taxpayers dime.

UPDATED: More Black Lives That Do Not Matter To The Leftist, MSM Mob, etc.: Birmingham, Alabama Mall Shooting Leaves 8 Year old boy dead and three wounded.

Mourning 8-year-old Royta Giles, killed in Galleria shooting 4th of July weekend

What piss poor reporting this was. The article states a witness heard a "man" so therefore I will deduce the shooter must have been a black man. The article cites a shooting incident that took place at the mall back in 2018 elaborating more on that shooting than the one that happened yesterday. Where is the outcry? There will be none or very little as this doesn't fit the narrative of the left. There will be some unity breakfasts, a vigil where balloons are released, a denouncement of violence by some black politicians,  maybe a candlelight vigil in some city park, and a downtown march of about twenty black and white people calling for an end to the violence, etc. It is sad this young boy had to die and others had to suffer so senselessly. I am sure Al Sharpton couldn't be reached for comment. There is no money to be made from this act of violence and nothing to see here. Move along. The pitiful account can be read HERE.    (LINK FIXED )

Just when we thought the NFL had reached to apex of self destruction, they make this dumbass announcement.

             "NFL Plans To Play Black National Anthem Before Week 1 Games"


3 years after Kaepernick took a knee, the NFL is back to business ...

I thought there was just one National Anthem. I have to agree with Ted Cruz on this one. Are there yellow, red, white, national anthems too? This is asinine. I dug out a three year old photo of Kappernick and crew kneeling so I could ask if they will stand for the "Black National Anthem". Probably so. I know most on here are not "sports ball enthusiasts" and sure not fans of the National Felon League.  Still, most of us see and agree that these players, like the NASCAR drivers of last week, are being played for political gain. Either they or ignorant, apathetic. or both.

BLM, DemoRatz, Urban Rot, "can't have a damn thing nice": NOTHING TO SEE HERE. MOVE ALONG

One third of the city of Toledo's council members (4) and an attorney were arrested by the FBI for bribery and extortion charges Tuesday. Where is the outcry and the protests? The "useful idiots" are more concerned with yanking down a statue of some person who lived generations ago and who most of the "useful idiots" know nothing of than the sorry state of affairs in the 71st  largest city in the United States.  I really had to dig to find a photo of the four. CNN did not even headline this story. I wonder if it had something to do with the fact that all four council members were black and all four were democrats.

157 Years Ago Today

With over 51,000 casualties, the three day battle of Gettysburg was one of the bloodiest battles of the war. One of my GG-granddaddy's was there and shot through the side. He lived and made it home to Alabama. Things will look much different in CW2. Plan accordingly. There will be a test.
