Overnight Mandate...

 

 


 

 

 

Covid 19 Up Close and Personal, A Post Sponsered by Kettle One*....

 So, Here we go with the shit I've been dealing with...

 

The previous week.. 12/7-12/11

Regarding work, at which we have had no cases since this started in January.

One positive case confirmed.

Flu like symptoms experienced nothing more. Passed automated temp scan on 12/7 and 12/8.

Positive test 12/9

Contact tracing with fellow employees,

13 others, some very close including their family members ( all so far are negative).

Yours truly included in close contact.

Two days later 2 more positive cases.

Get this:... One of the close contacts left early for a hospital test on 12/8 AND tested negative during said unrelated hospital visit. ( figure that out. )Three days later they tested positive.( figure THAT out)

We investigated and found out that 13 ( about 20% of the crew) are deemed close contact and told to stay home and if possible to work from home.

Moi included.

I feel fine during stay at home, work and do chores outside, no issues. Out of an abundance of caution for all involved, I decide to test last Monday 12/14.  12/16 results - Negative. Great.

At this point, all contact tracing has been returned negative at work. Fuck HIPAA, social media will tell you what ever you want to know.

 One employee who was in close contact with ALL 3 CASES FOR FOUR DAYS, AND, had flu like symptoms, TESTED NEGATIVE..

Read that again >>> NEGATIVE, four fucking times.  Yes , see that, >>>negative.  They chose to be tested over and over and over and....one more.... over. Four times. ALL NEGATIVE.. figure that out. They were with all the positive cases multiple times over a 2-3 day period.

So, that brings us to this past week and a refresher: I was negative on Wednesday.

The boss woke up thursday, congested and coughing. Ooookay, test for taste,smell, fever, negative.

 Yesterday, friday,  I was a little tired and was coughing. It started on thursday night. I slept in until 6:30 which is late.

 Today is Saturday, right?

 Remember, I tested negative on wednesday after being around all my employees (50+) the week before.

This past week as we monitored at work we only have the original cases and none of the contact tracing led to more #kungflu.

Fast forward:

At dinner this evening, the boss gets a call. Positive. Wait? What? So, the boss has been working from home. I'm "negative" we both had a day and a half cough Thursday into Friday and now this?

No other symptoms. No fever. No loss of taste or smell. No diarrhea. No vomiting, No nausea, well I guess if  we don't include when I watch CNN then, no nausea.

 

 Same with the boss.


Now, I have to report close contact , household. Get the scarlet letter. Stay home for 10 days.

 

Hmmmm,

 

10 days puts us at..../licks finger, scrolls calendar/.... 12/31. I think I like this Covid.  More later.



* because alcohol kills germs*



 

 

 

At this point, nothing would shock me.

The Shit I Do For Phil....

  

Phil found a damn good Death Metal song. The problem is the gutteral lyrics. Some of us are getting to old to enjoy that shit.  So, being in the Christmas spirit, not spirits (yet), I did some web work.

Search "How to remove vocals from songs"

Spend some time and then find this:  LINK<<

Ok, now after some trial and error I got the updated music. It's not perfect, I guess AI hasn't gotten to that point yet.

After that I spent an hour or so trying to embed the new mp3.. To no avail.

At this point you can only upload video with the litttle icon in the tool bar above.

So, back to more web work by searching "Convert MP3 to video"  and found THIS<<   which leads to this after about 2 hours:


Here ya go Phil,

Would You Agree With The Premise That "It's Time To Call a Convention of States "

 

 

Brian sends:

 

 Irish, I need your help. I've written a piece on the Article 5 convention of states and I have no way of getting the word out. Your network is far better than mine.

It's Time To Call a Convention of States

There was a time in my life when I thought a convention of states was a radical move. I don't think you can predict with certainty how bad things can get or just when it's time to invoke something like a convention of states. The stolen election and the obstruction of any kind of investigation or quest for an accurate vote tally is the last straw. Our government, meaning Congress and SCOTUS, is like a drug addict or alcoholic. We can either intervene and attempt to stop their reckless behavior or we can all suffer the consequences and watch our government die.

 “On the final day of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when our Constitution was adopted, Americans gathered on the steps of Independence Hall to await the news of the government our founders had crafted. They asked Benjamin Franklin, ‘What do we have, a republic or a monarchy?’ Franklin replied, ‘A republic, if you can keep it.’ Our responsibility is to keep it.”

A glimpse into what it was like for a WW2 German Luftwaffe pilot to take on a B-17 Bomber formation (H/T to Ed in Moulton)

 Walt Miller



Former 0311/0302 at United States Marine Corps (1973-1993)

Not much fun. One GAF pilot said that trying to attack a B-17 formation from behind was like “trying to make love to a porcupine that is on fire.”

“A typical interception in the fall of 1942 has been described by Johannes Naumann, at that time the an Oberleutnant in II/JG 26. The Gruppe was ordered to attack the bombers on their return flight as there was no chance of reaching them on their bomb run. The B-17’s were flying in a staggered formation at about 26,000 feet. The Focke Wulfs finally struggled up to 27,000 feet, only to see the American formation receding into the distance. The speed of the FW 190’s at that altitude was only a little greater than that of the bombers…No bombers were downed; none had even suffered visible damage.”

—Top Guns of the Luftwaffe p. 125 by Donald L. Caldwell.

“The size of the heavy bombers and their formations could not be adequately described to a green pilot; they had to be experienced first hand…The bomber gunners opened fire as soon as a target was seen, in order to disrupt or ward off attacks. The Americans’ browning .50 inch machine guns had a higher muzzle velocity and a greater range than the Germans MG 17s whose tracers were used to site their MG 151 cannon. So the fighter pilots cockpits were surrounded by red tracers, “Swarming like wasps” in Borris’s words, long before they themselves could open fire effectively; and because of low closing speeds, this extremely uncomfortable situation could continue for several minutes…some plots would invariably break away prematurely, and the rest would pass through the bomber formation at whatever angle and orientation promised the best chance of survival.”

—— ibid p. 126

“All four of the bombers shot down by JG 26 came from the 306th Bomb Group. The Geschwader lost only one pilot in this battle, but it was a serious blow to the unit. Hptm. Fritz Geisshardt, Kommandeur of the third Gruppe, was hit by return fire on his unit’s first pass through the bombers. Bleeding profusely from a wound in the abdomen, Geisshardt dove away from the the battle and made a smooth landing …his blood loss proved fatal; the medical personnel at the Ghent hospital could not save him and he died early the next morning.

—-ibid p. 159

"Against 20 Russians trying to shoot you down, or even 20 Spitfires, it can be exciting, even fun. But to curve in towards 40 Fortresses and all your past sins flash before your eyes. And when you yourself have reached this state of mind, it becomes that much more difficult to have to drive every pilot of the Geschwader, right down to the youngest and lowliest NCO, to do the same."

Hans Philipp in a letter to Hannes Trautloft, 4 October 1943. Philipp was KIA 4 days later, possibly By Robert S. Johnson, during a raid on Bremen.

Damn, I Haven't Seen Numbers Like That In A Long Time....

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

An observation from being out and about


Lately, any place that I have gone into or stopped at for various reasons, I have noticed that almost everybody says  Merry Christmas near the end of the encounter. 

I have also noticed it on the phone with customers and or customer service employees that I deal with.  

It’s definitely interesting because I’m not used to it. Which is sad if you think about it. 

My usual comment to people during this time of year has been  “If you’re allowed to say it or don’t mind it being said   I will wish you a Merry Christmas.” That usually gets a hearty “Merry Christmas” back from the person that I am  talking to. 


Thanks President Trump.

76 Years Ago Today: "The Battle of the Bulge"

 

                      By the winter of 1944, the Germans were thought to have been incapable of launching a major offensive. The Americans, British, and Canadians had them headed towards the Rhine. Little did the Allies know that the German High Command was ready to launch a huge offensive in the area of the Ardennes Forest. Had the Germans not been lacking fuel  for their tanks and other vehicles and if stalwart determined Americans like the men in this video not been blocking the Germans' route, the German plan could have succeeded and they might have captured their objective, the deep water port of Antwerp, where tons of supplies were arriving daily to keep the Allied Armies going. Had this happened, the war probably would have ended much differently.

For the love of God and Country, I hope and pray this is the narrative that is followed. (via Southern Patriot James King)

 From President Trump’s ....Atty. Jenna Ellis...

Today, the electoral college votes will be sealed and sent by special carrier to Washington where they will remain sealed until January 6th when the House and Senate will come into a joint session to open the votes. The media is going to make you believe that it's all over and Joe Biden is now officially president...
On January 6th, Nancy Pelosi will sit down with the rest of the House members as she has no special power or authority over the hearing... Vice President Mike Pence will have all the authority as president of the Senate for that day and will accept or reject motions to decide the next steps by the assembly.
Remember... Mike Pence is in full authority that day as written in the Constitution. The ballots will be certified today but that means nothing...
The votes will be opened and at that point one House member could, and most likely will, raise their hand to object to the Vice President on the state of elector's votes. That objection could cover fraud or any other reason, and with the seconding of that objection everything changes. Everything!!
The House and Senate will divide for two hours (at least) to debate, then vote. The vote will be per Senator with the Vice President being the deciding vote if needed in the Senate, while the vote in the House will be only be ONE vote per delegation, per state, not per House member!!! The Republicans have 30 delegation votes compared to the Democrats 20 delegation votes.
If this scenario runs true, President Trump gets re-elected.
The Democrats, the media, social networks and globalists around the world will come unhinged and chaos will erupt.
President Trump is trying to do the right thing and go through the courts first, expose all the fraud, but we all knew that none of the courts, even the Supreme Court wanted to touch this issue with a 10-ft pole!
This is why our forefathers were so brilliant because they knew something like this could happen someday. So, don't listen to the media and all their deception and lies. All you have to do is read the Constitution and you know that the law, policies and procedures in the end are on our side.

Are There Any Scholars Of The Constitution In The Audience? or Maybe Someone That Slept In A Holiday Inn Express Last Night?

That would like to explain this mode of chess.....

 

 Via twitter here <<<

 

The President’s Constitutional Plan.

It involves two steps, or two fronts: First the Courts, then the House.

-The Trump Campaign, RNC, various state GOP Parties, third party organizations, are filing county, state, and federal lawsuits.

A Republic, not a Democracy.
-The primary objective is to strategically get several ballots invalidated.

-However, a secondary objective is to publicly expose “corruption” in these cities to both STATE reps and US House and Senate Leaders. This is crucial.
-While keeping the 73 million Trump supporters engaged and working behind the scenes.

-There seems to be success in this, as two polls show 60% of the US now believe “fraud” occurred and only 49% believe Biden won. These polls have a 37-32 D:R bias.
-Keep in mind, MSM “calls” are merely “projections” of how a state voted in the popular vote. Strictly speaking, they means nothing.

-Win, or lose in court, the next step is the GOP State Legislatures (SLs) in PA, MI, WI, AZ and GA.

A Republican, not a Democracy.
-On December 14, 2020, Certified Electors from each state, cast their ballots for the President and VP. What many do not realize is they vote in their home state and their vote is sealed and NOT “counted” until January 6th. Crucial point.
-Now, the SLs have the Constitutional authority (under Article II, Section 1, Clause 3 and 3 U.S. Code § 2 and § 5) to appoint their own slate of Electors, loyal to President Trump, if they deem their state’s “POPULAR VOTE IS CORRUPTED”.
-In other words, the State GOP Legislature of Georgia, for example, can “conclude that the popular vote has been corrupted” and appoint a “competing slate” of electors, loyal to President Trump. For example, 20 Biden Electors from PA & 20 for Trump.

A Republic, not a Democracy.
-The precedent for this is the 1876 Election when SC, LA, FL and (1 EV from OR) each sent competing Dem and Repub Electoral votes, sealed, to the archivist in D.C.

-Keep in mind, NOTHING is “counted” yet. Another crucial point.
-On January 6, the 12th Amendment to the Constitution specifies that the “President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted.”
-That means that in the case of disputes about competing electoral slates, the President of the Senate—Vice President Pence—would appear to have the ultimate authority to decide which to accept and which to reject. This is supported by 3 U.S. Code § 15. Hence, Trump wins.
-This is a de facto check on the Electoral College, which few realize because it only happened in 1876.

A Republic, not a Democracy.
-If at that point, nobody gets to 270, the 12th Amendment stipulates, “the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote.”
-Currently, Republicans have a state delegation majority with 26 (likely 30 in the new Congress) out of 50. Ergo, Trump wins.

-Prez Trump has clearly discussed and been briefed on a strategy to contest the election via Constitutional means, first through the courts and then...
...through House, saying at a Sept. 26 rally in—where else—Pennsylvania: “And I don’t want to end up in the Supreme Court and I don’t want to go back to Congress either, even though we have an advantage if we go back to Congress — does everyone understand that? I think it’s....
...26 to 22 or something because it’s counted one vote per state, so we actually have an advantage. Oh, they’re going to be thrilled to hear that.”

NO clearer indication exists that this was his plan all along.
-Moreover, Politico reports, “In private, Trump has discussed the possibility of the presidential race being thrown into the House as well, raising the issue with GOP lawmakers, according to Republican sources" such as McConnell, Graham, McCarthy, etc.
-This would explain Sen. McConnell’s resolute backing of President Trump. It is clear, McConnell, who is shrewd and believes in raw power, knows POTUS is on solid Constitutional ground. With our help, he will hold the GOP Caucus in line.
- In a contested 2020 election, like the Election of 1876, the Republican Senate and Democratic House would disagree on which electors to accept. This is called a “disputation.”

A Republic, not a Democracy.
-Under the Constitution, there exists no mechanism to resolve a dispute in which the two houses of Congress cannot agree upon a certified set of electors, and there is no Constitutional role for the courts, including the Supreme Court. This is another crucial point.
-Hence, Trump’s Sept. 26th references to FIRST the COURTS, then the HOUSE (see above).

-The House and Senate GOP (McCarthy & McConnell) shall argue under the language of the 12th amendment, the President of the Senate—Vice President Mike Pence—has the sole discretion...
....to break a deadlock between the Senate and the House, and to either accept or dismiss disputed electors.

-Republicans will point to the historical pedigree of the VP’s position, observing that the GOP made the same argument during the election of 1876.
-Given the language of the Twelfth Amendment, whatever its ambiguity and potential policy objections, there is no other possible single authority to identify for this purpose besides the President of the Senate to act as the arbiter of any disputes and break deadlocks.
-In fact, within Pence's powers, he could either accept the competing slates of electors submitted, or dismiss them as disputed, and not have them counted. A reduced total still delivers Trump a victory BECAUSE IT DEPRIVES BIDEN OF 270. This is another crucial point.
-If 270 is not reached, then under the 12th amend, “the House of Representatives shall "choose immediately", in this scenario, reelecting President Trump to a second term because, as stated above, the GOP controls the House Delegation majority.

A Republic, not a Democracy.
So, what we need to do is KEEP CALLING, EMAILING, ORGANIZAING, MARCHING, and FORCING the GOP at the State and Federal levels to appoint a Republican slate of electors for Prez Trump and SUPPORT HIM 1000%.

End.
In case anyone is wondering about @realDonaldTrump's plan re competing slates, he just claimed victory in PA again.

By doing this, he's telegraphing to State GOP leaders, in his opinion "the popular vote is corrupted" and they must act.

I'm trying 2b objective in my analysis.
Addendum Trump’s Constitutional Plan (See above):

-Dec. 14 the Electoral College votes, but on January 6, is when it is “counted”.
-If one member of the House and one Senator dispute or "object" an electoral vote, or a state slate, both houses withdraw to debate the issue.
-Now, 3 U.S.C. § 6 says "if there is "controversy" re an election, then the governor must, "as soon as practicable after such determination," communicate, "under the seal of the State...a certificate of such determination in form and manner as the same shall have been made."
-This suggests that, if a governor is ignoring controversy, or a contested election result and not issuing a determination, and communicating it properly, s/he is breaking federal law.

-I believe this too is where objections re "certified" state electors will arise on Jan 6.
-For example, the GA, AZ, and PA results, will likely disputed by the Senate (R) because the govs of those states are AWOL, ignoring pleases for audits. Thus, their states' results will be challenged as "unlawfully certified".

-This will be resisted by the Dem House.
-Now, under the Electoral Count Act of 1877, it is unclear if the House accepts a slate and the Senate rejects it, how to move beyond an impasse. What is clear is that tradition holds “The President of the Senate” is the tie breaker. Ergo, Trump wins.
-Therefore, if disputes are raised over MI, PA, GA, and AZ, for example, and the House (D) & Senate (R) are tied, and Pence decides to side with the GOP and throw out the slates (which he would), neither Biden or Trump, could get to 270.

-The election results are rendered moot.
-If that occurs, the 12th Amendment CLEARLY says the “US House” delegations would “immediately” choose the president, while the Senate picks the VP.
-The GOP controls 26 of 50 US House delegations.

The House would reelect Trump.

-The Senate reelects Pence.
As I said earlier: we have a contested election.

We are headed toward a Constitutional crisis.

But @POTUS has a Constitutional plan, rooted in federalism, to be reelected.

Pray, if you pray, and if you don't...maybe you should start.
