The New King and His Court

2022 January 20
by bc3b

The King and His Court was a four-man softball team that started touring after WWII and played for over 50 years (with different players). They were excellent softball players, anchored by a pitcher who was virtually unhittable, and they won almost all of their games against nine-player teams.

Yesterday Joe Biden and the White House Press Corps illustrated they are the 2020s version of the King and His Court. With the exception of James Rosen of Newsmax, the White House Press Corps lobbed softballs to Joe Biden. Subjects that received little or no coverage were the economy, open borders, the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, Americans left behind, crime and schools – things American voters actually care about.

Unlike the King and His Court, Biden and the press lackies failed to impress the fans. Once again Biden came across as an angry old man suffering from dementia. The press conference lasted for two hours as Biden rambled, often incoherently. As usual, Biden took credit for positive things (even imaginary ones) and blamed others for failures. Among Biden’s claims:

  • No other administration accomplished as much in its first year
  • Biden “didn’t overpromise, but overachieved”
  • Grocery shelves are 89% full – been to Safeway or Publix lately?
  • People misrepresent him last week he as compared anyone opposing the so-called “voter rights bill” to George Wallace, Bull Connor and Jefferson Davis

Biden talked incessantly about his imaginary accomplishments and pimped the “voter rights bill,” which mercifully died in the Senate last night.

This was Biden’s first official press conference in nearly 10 months and the media made the least of the opportunity.

CNN Gearing Up for November

In other media news, it is really gearing up to try to save the Democrats in November, especially CNN.

We reported earlier how CNN hired Michael Fanone, the Trump-hating former Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department officer (aka meter maid) as a law enforcement expert. Now it is creating a special section to uncover and expose “misinformation.”

CNN was ripped online Tuesday after a top editor for the left-leaning network announced the creation of a special CNN team dedicated to “covering misinformation.”

“I’m hiring 3 people for a new CNN team dedicated to covering misinformation,” CNN Business Managing Editor Alex Koppelman posted to Twitter.

“What do we mean by covering misinformation? Really it’s about covering reality: The uses, abuses, and distortions of it, the people twisting it, and the effect that has on all of us. We already do a lot of important work on this; we want to do more,” the post read.

You can bet this new misinformation team will be every bit as honest and objective as the so-called “fact checkers” at Polifact, Snopes and the Washington Post. If they were legit, three people aren’t enough to investigate the misinformation spewed by Brian Stelter and guests Sunday mornings.

    the one item not mentioned in Biden’s presser was that nearly 1 billion units of Covid test kits have been ordered but not delivered for a disease that is on its way to becoming the common cold. I wonder why? Maybe insane profits for Pharma not too popular right now???

    3, good point. Flog those babies to the masses while we can still find buyers.
    Dr Pierre Kory will testify to the Senate. I think Monday.

    There are now rapidly increasing numbers of national and regional health ministries that employed either widespread distribution or “test and treat” programs with ivermectin that show that, had we done the same in the U.S, we could have single-handedly achieved near complete control of case counts, hospitalizations rates, and deaths. Early treatment program results from around the world show the following:

    · Mexico City – The IMSSS Health Agency compared over 50,000 patients treated early with ivermectin to over 70,000 not treated and found up to a 75% reduction in need for hospitalization.

    · La Misiones, Argentina – Health Ministry analyzed the data from 4,000 ivermectin treated patients and, compared to the rest of the population over the same time period, found a 75% reduction in need for hospital and an 88% reduction in death.

    · Uttar Pradesh, India – Using a strategy of close surveillance combined with both ivermectin treatment of all positive cases and preventive treatment of all family contacts. On September 10, 2021, only 11 cases with no deaths were recorded in a population of 241 million..with 67 of their 75 districts having no active cases at the time.

    · The Brazilian city of Itajai offerred ivermectin as prevention to the entire city’s population with 133,051 (60%) agreeing to take ivermectin every two weeks for 6 months. Compared to the 45,716 city inhabitants that declined to use ivermectin, ivermectin users were 47% less likely to contract illness, had a 70% lower mortality rate, and a 67% lower hospitalization rate. By the end of the 6 month program, the citywide COVID mortality fell from 6.8% to 1.8%.

    · La Pampas, Argentina – Health Ministry compared over 2,000 patients they treated early with ivermectin to over 12,000 without treatment and found that in patients over 40, rates of ICU admission and death both fell by 40%.

    · Peru – A nationwide mass-distribution program called “Mega-Operación Tayta” (MOT), initiated at various times across 25 states of Peru in May 2020, led to a 74% drop in regional excess deaths within a month, with each drop beginning 11 days after each MOT region’s varied start times

    · The Health Ministry of Sultan Kudarat in the Phillipines launched an ivermectin drive and found that cases rapidly dropped by 86%. compared to nearby regions

    · In Japan, the President of the Tokyo Medical Association recommended that all physicians start to use ivermectin as early treatment during their summer surge. They are now recording the lowest rate of COVID hospitalization in the pandemic.

    · 23 countries (39 including NGO’s) have now given either partial or full approval for use in COVID, which encompasses 25% of the world’s population.

    The information I have delivered here today is being suppressed across most of the world’s corporate media and (corporation controlled) medical journals.

    Jim, 4,

    KH had the brainy idea of why don’t we distribute ‘prevention kits’ to push down the curve? McCullough even pushed the idea of some form of prevention to forestall a need to be hospitalized. I like the idea so much I would be in favor of some sort of minor deduction in medical insurance cost if at least one member of a family took a red cross course structured like the military does for field trauma.

    We pissed away the greatest opportunity in the 1990’s when the USSR was collapsing. We should have requested Russia withdraw from the Warsaw Pact in exchange for economic assistance. Without Russia the WP was not a threat to europe. NATO would have stayed on it old boundaries. Russia would have had weakened buffer states they did not need to supply. We would not be where we are today. But nooooooo, we had to become what John Adams warned us about.

    What a splendid article, with a great question at its core! I’ve got friends and, sadly, family who buy into the whole Global Warming crap. The question the author asks would be the easiest to shut down the question. One of our family spent several years teaching on Palau…a VERY flat island that it just above sea level. About 5 years ago she contacted me after reading an alarmist article that mentioned Palau and said it was going to “disappear”. I told her to contact some of her friends she still had there, who have lived there their entire lives, ask them if they had noticed ANY change. She did…and they laughed at her. There has been NO noticeable change. Could there be? Sure. But NONE yet.

    “How much CO2 is too much? Do you know at what PPM plants start dying for lack of CO2?”

    Not exactly my thought, Lord Mockton came up with it. But like the article posed it forces a question that most can’t answer.

    I think the annual DC pro life March is today.
    I think there’s a Stop The Mandates rally tomorrow.

    Part of Dr Malone’s substack post today:
    Following Dr. Robert Malone’s appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, more physicians and medical scientists have joined with their colleagues from around the world in signing the Physicians Declaration. Now with more than 17,000 signatures confirmed through a rigorous validation process, these physicians and scientists are represented by Dr. Malone as he speaks at the march to Defeat the Mandates on Sunday, January 23 in Washington, D.C.

    The over 17,000 signers to the declaration have reached consensus on three foundational principles:

    1) Healthy children should not be subject to forced vaccination: they face negligible risk from covid, but face potential permanent, irreversible risk to their health if vaccinated, including heart, brain, reproductive and immune system damage.
    2) Natural Immunity Denial has prolonged the pandemic and needlessly restricted the lives of Covid-recovered people. Masks, lockdowns, and other restrictions have caused great harm especially to children and delayed the virus’ transition to endemic status.
    3) Health agencies and institutions must cease interfering with the physician-patient relationship. Policymakers are directly responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, as a result of institutional interference and blocking treatments proven to cure at a near 100% rate when administered early.
    Led by Dr. Malone and staying loyal to the Hippocratic oath, the declaration’s signers have resisted financial inducements, threats, unprecedented censorship, and reputational attacks to remain committed first to patient health and well-being.

    btw, compare the 17,000 signatures above (verified by an independent 3rd party) with the 300(?) signatures to kick Joe Rogan off Spotify for interviewing 3 dissident doctors. Less than half of those guys are MDs. One is a marijuana farmer.

    Yes, that switcheroo really happened. I think that’s how they passed ObamaCare too.
    I don’t recall details why they do that, maybe it makes the bill ineligible for a filibuster or something. Pass in the House, move to Senate, gut it and replace every word, pass it in Senate, send back to House (or to a joint committee to align discrepancies?)

    34,

    This could be a case of ‘it solves itself’. If the Guv is going to back a pledge of the parents being in charge of the schools then those that want masks can keep them, those that don’t won’t. A smart school board would provide options, maybe a school or two that have a mask free policy out of the entire system.

    Drdog, Rome kinda did fall like “turning off a light switch”…5 or 6 times. They just kept getting re-invented as something slightly (or completely) un-Roman. The Huns, Visigoths,Vandals, etc, all decided they wanted to profit from the carcass of Rome, so they propped it up.

    I think we’re already going through that.

    +No fed MC overhead.
    +No state and other related payroll (unempl\workcomp etc) overhead.
    +No HR or diversity issues\costs from them.
    ~ Everyone once in awhile they’ll go down and your screwed for hours or a couple days till the replacement\repair gets to you, and the humans have to take over for a short period, or you have multiple and you run at reduced capacity till replacement\repair. Basically it can still get sick for a couple hours,days. What’s the support contract guarantee and is that in the original price-per-hour?
    – Increases electricity bill (probably minor in the case of a couple and what types the article is discussing).

    When does the gov increase the remaining workers taxes to ‘make up for the short fall’, or start instituting robot taxes? Cause you know pols are probably already thinking about both.

    Love “RaaS”, took me a minute to figure it out though. Slowing down in my old age. 🙂

    Maher says wtf to Covid policies. We are getting crossover appeal
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/01/covid-fk-use-boosters-bill-maher-goes-off-medical-establishment-experimental-vaccines-latest-interview/
    I’m Over COVID, What the F**k Is the Use of Boosters?” – Bill Maher Goes Off on Medical Establishment, Experimental Vaccines in Latest Interview

    This actually pretty well informed:
    I’m over Covid.” He continued, “I mean, 78%, this is just the CDC fact, 78% of the people who died or went to the hospital were obese. Now, I’m not saying they deserved to die. Don’t twist my words, please. I’m just saying that is a lifestyle, you know? So, the fact that America, the medical establishment, never even attempted to get people to live a healthier lifestyle as a response to this pandemic is a giant scandal to me… It’s not a rarefied or weird point of view to say that if people would up their vitamin D levels, up their zinc levels, stop eating sugar, get a proper amount of sleep, stop overeating and day drinking, which is what went on during this pandemic, they would have a much better chance. The people who didn’t do that have blood on their hands. There’s no other way to put it.”

    Maher continued, “I understand that the Western medical establishment is rather cozy with the pharmaceutical industry, so I understand that their only idea about solving this is a pharmaceutical response. And I’m glad there is a vaccine because many people need a vaccine. It does stop you from dying. But shouldn’t we also have at least mentioned this other way to deal with it?”

    On taking a booster shot, “I mean, we’re in a very different place with Covid than we were just when I was on the air last time, and that is the vaccines, we know, do not prevent you from either transmitting it or getting the disease. We know that. That’s a fact now. They just prevent you from dying, which is a great part of it, let’s not undercount that. But if they don’t prevent you from transmitting it and they don’t prevent you from getting it why are we still treating this disease the way we always have? And what the f*ck is the use of a booster shot? Because I will never get a booster shot.”
