Most of the Time

I have no idea

Most of the time, I have no idea what I’m going to write about until I sit down and write it. But today, I did. Does 52 million barrels ring a bell? Then, I turned on the TV and surprise-surprise, oil was no longer a headline.

The headline for today: there’s a new covid variant (omicron)* out there and Biden is starting the covid protocols all over again, beginning with travel bans. We’re just following the science I’m sure. Except, the scientists have already said travel bans don’t work once the virus is out. And guess what? Biden is more than a day late (more like two weeks) and more than a few common sense short.

Two points:

1 – While travel bans may work in the beginning when a virus or a variant is discovered, Biden’s travel ban is just like all other Biden plans, too little—too late. Unless it involves government spending, then, too little—too late, is an oxymoron.

2 – If we’re going to name variants using the Greek alphabet, then what happened to Xi? Oh, maybe China’s President Xi doesn’t like the coincidental spelling. You know, just like he didn’t like covid being called the Wuhan or Chinese virus.

Covid and its variants are going to be around in perpetuity. Why? Covid is the perfect excuse for government over-reach and excessive regulation. People are afraid of it. Ask yourself a question. Why don’t we have travel bans for Flu outbreaks? The Flu mutates more, it’s just as contagious (if not more), and it kills more.

Let’s face it folks. Until we change this government, Biden will continue on his path of failure because that’s all he’s good at—failing.

Do you remember the Carter Malaise back in the 70’s? That’s our future, and Joe is proudly leading the way with excessive government regulation, taxation, high fuel costs, and inflation. The cure for Jimmy Carter was Ronald W. Reagan. The cure for Joe Biden is Donald J. Trump.

*Omicron was discovered almost two weeks ago.

PS – 52 million barrels are coming to a post near you. But I’m rapidly running out of daylight, and this bus driver needs to drive a lawnmower.

The Art of Not Saying

What They Want You to Think

It truly is an art form, and technically, it’s not lying. It’s saying things that lead you to think something else, and the progressive movement is proficient at it. It’s one of the most effective ways to make socialist and communist ideology mainstream thought, and it’s happening right before our eyes.

Yesterday, on CNN’s State of the Union, Dr. Fauci said (referring to the spread of covid-19), “This is not driven by immigrants.”

There aren’t truer words to describe the recent spread of the disease, and here’s why:

The people who are coming over our southern border in droves carry all sorts of diseases, including serious illnesses that we as Americans have long since mitigated. Diseases such as cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and influenza caused by novel or reemergent influenza viruses, just to name a few. Then, there’s the high number of individuals infected with covid-19 and its variants.

Wait!

Didn’t Dr. Fauci say that these people are not spreading covid in the U.S.?

No! He didn’t.

Dr. (?’able) Fauci said that immigrants are not the cause. The people invading our southern border are illegal immigrants. There’s a big difference.

The purpose of this wordplay that progressives employ with adroit reflex is twofold. First, it’s to get you to think what they didn’t say, is what they said, or vice versa. Second (and just as insidious), is to get you accustomed to language shift. The case in point here, referring to illegal aliens invading America at this very moment, as immigrants.
