As you read, please remember I’m just a singer in a rock and roll band, not a medical professional. I have a surgeon friend though who will back every word said here. This rant concerns my irritation with people, including on television and face book, instructing me to stay home or wear masks.
Whenever we watch television, there seems to be a public service announcement reminding us to stay home and safe. Of particular annoyance are the entertainers telling us from within their mansions they’re “with us.” The ensuing commercials sell their products while reminding us about these “unprecedented times,” still pounding the virus theme.
By now, is there really anyone in this country unaware there is a virus going around? So why do we need to be reminded of this virus every ten minutes? Perhaps to keep it on your mind… and afraid?
Who determined we needed these commercials? Think about it, corporations paid major money to produce and broadcast virus commercials to play ad nauseum - while we’re already sitting at home! Might that define indoctrination?
By what right does anybody have to tell anyone else to stay home? They have no authority, whether they’re John Doe or the John Deer Corp. to tell anyone to stay home. You stay home if you have concerns about the virus. And I have no problem if you elect to stay home, especially if you have an underlying medical condition. But your fear comes to a screeching halt where others’ rights start!
As for the governors, have you noticed it’s the Democrat governors coming down so heavy-handed to keep people home? Have you given any thought as to why that would be? Suppose it might be political, or do you really think they just care more? Gradually, people are starting to ignore governors, as they should. I seethe when I hear some governor lackey say, “the governor’s going to “allow” people to do something….”
Governors in most states had authority to lock down their state for 30 days. We’ve passed that time. Going beyond that time is questionable, which will eventually bear out in court. Legislatures make laws, not obese billionaires who have bought governorship's, or confused governors sentencing elderly folks to die in nursing homes. It’s been proven politicians don’t have any better answers than anyone else.
We went out shopping to replace a couch the other day. We drove to a specific store we preferred. As we started to enter, a masked guard directed us to put on a mask. Being hard of hearing (too much rock and roll and forgot my hearing aides) I hadn’t heard him, but I saw his hand out, barring our way. I was going to ask my wife what he said. Too late! She was already reminding him of our rights. My girl! By the look on the part of his face we could see, he hadn’t thought about our rights.
If masks are effective, why is social distancing advocated? If social distancing is effective, why are masks advised? Are you aware the Surgeon General of the United States has said masks are not effective? Might this be more about compliance?
We’ll never shop that store again. They have a right to request masking, but we will exercise our right not to shop there. We went to a few other small businesses instead and bought other items. Those stores were delighted to see us, without masks. I read afterward that furniture store is near bankruptcy. Guess they should have sold us a couch.
Recently, MSNBC went to Wisconsin to do a story on the great unwashed not wearing masks in public. Ironically, they went to Lake Geneva, where Governor Pritzker’s family is hanging out in order to escape draconian Illinois. The reporter was pointing out miscreants who were not wearing masks, including one guy in a beautiful Packers jersey. On camera, Packer jersey-guy pointed out the reporter’s cameraman was not wearing a mask either. Hypocrisy thrives within governments and media.
Nobody has had a clear concept about what to do about this virus since its inception. They’re making it up as they go along, usually along political lines. The “experts” have changed directions often, and still don’t agree with each other. States and cities fudged death counts. We found out the WHO and CDC organizations are not totally reliable. WHO might have even been culpable in the spread and ultimate deaths of thousands.
Politicians seized on this matter instantaneously, shutting down the economy and snatching the rights of terrified American people, while the media cheered them on. Instead of clear, level-headed leadership from governors and legislatures, what we got was a hodge-podge of mostly erroneous notions that did nothing but cause millions of people their business or their jobs. Hopefully, we’ve learned a valuable lesson.
But what is most concerning about all this was how quickly people were to obey.
Former president Obama recently gave a commencement broadcast on social media to 2020 graduates from predominately black universities. Evidently, Stacy Abrams was busy running Georgia so they reverted to a backup.
As is his predilection, the man I call the “Great Divider,” couldn’t resist taking potshots at any president not Himself. If you recall, anything not going right during his reign was Bush’s fault, and anything Trump has done right is because Obama started it.
The day before the commencement speech, Obama shot his mouth off in a web talk with the Obama Alumni Association, a fan club of sorts. He prophesied, “This election that’s coming up on every level is so important…” “What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy – that has become a stronger impulse in American life.”
Obviously, this was aimed at Trump, but I can’t think of a more apt description for the entire Obama presidency. I wish I’d have written that as it personifies the term, “The Great Divider.”
The following day, Obama casually sat in his Martha’s Vineyard palace moaning about Trump’s handling of the Wuhan Virus. Do you think when Teddy Roosevelt barked his “Man in the Middle” speech, he had people like Obama in mind? Obama’s diatribe became another opportunity to whine about Trump.
I couldn’t determine if Obama was paid for his tirade. One would surmise he wasn’t, but it was odd three different non-profit organizations put this video together. Lauren Powell’s “XQ Institute,” the “Lebron James Foundation,” and Hollywood’s “Entertainment Industry Foundation” were all involved in the video, although to what purpose wasn’t explained.
In opening remarks Obama gives a shout out to someone named Aniyah and her time with the Obama Foundation. The Obama Foundation is also a non-profit organization to oversee the creation of the Barack Obama Presidential Center on the south side of Chicago. This is the same Center the strapped taxpayers of Illinois will be required to shell out millions of dollars for roads and infrastructure, at the least, and knowing the shenanigans of the Pritzer/Madigan Duo, probably more. Doubting Obama doing anything for free, perhaps restitution was to his Foundation?
Additionally, am I the only one a little apprehensive that four non-profit organizations are involved in an Obama production? My Chebanse upbringing screams for someone to follow the money.
I’ve listened and read the transcript of the Obama speech a few times. On it’s face, it seems articulate and innocuous. When considering the target audience was young liberally indoctrinated graduates who probably have not been following national issues, other than the limitations the virus is having on their social lives, No Drama Obama delivered a “cool” sermon.
But if one were to scratch the veneer off the shallow address, it was apparent that Obama was second-
guessing any president not named Obama again. In his sermon he taunted, “More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing.” “…turns out that they don’t have all the answers. A lot of them aren’t even asking the right questions.”
While this was going on it has been revealed that between the time Trump was elected and took office in 2017, Obama launched the phony Russian Collusion hoax sitting in the Oval Office, with Joe Biden, John Brennan, Jim Clapper, Susan Rice, Jim Comey, and Sally Yates in attendance. Yates, new to the cabal, was reportedly shocked.
Obama then directed his cronies to leak rumors concerning Russia and Trump to any media outlet gullible enough to run with it, which naturally included the NY Times and Washington Post. Ludicrously, these two tabloids won Pulitzer Prizes for this false reporting, making these prizes as worthless as Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.
In moves that would make J. Edgar Hoover blush, former FBI Director, Jim Comey, the lone holdover from the Obama experiment to the Trump administration, continued the hoax and leaks up to the time Trump unceremoniously canned him.
Obama is doing damage control now. He’s aware his subversive operation, aided and abetted by Biden and Hillary Clinton, is being exposed. More information is made public daily of their nefarious misdeeds. Sadly, roots run so deep through the Washington Swamp I doubt any of us will ever know the full truth, or see them do prison time.
To borrow a term from Bush43, the real “Axis of Evil” to America has been the trio of Clinton, Biden, and Obama. Using the powers of the FBI, DOJ, IRS, and CIA, they destroyed their enemies and looted from not only our country, but the rest of the world as well. They plotted to drive this country away from our democratic roots and towards a socialist New World Order, enriching themselves immensely in the process.
It will become a matter of history.
Well, well…it’s getting interesting over at the Department of Justice. It occurs to me this might be a delusion, or possibly my overactive imagination, but it bears commentary.
Fending off nearly every Democrat and RINO within sight, Attorney General Barr and Assistant US Attorney, John Durham have finally been able to slash a narrow trail through the murky Deep State. Emerging out the other side of the Swamp, the two sleuths happen upon a sun-drenched clearing resembling an Emerald City, complete with a munchkin-like commune established in front of an enchanted castle, nestled alongside the Martha’s Vineyard shoreline.
There are munchkins everywhere, some sitting in a circle, holding hands and singing kumbaya, led by the Wicked Witch Pelosi, while others are tending rows of marijuana under the watchful eye of Gate Keeper Chuck Schumer. Button-Bright Nadler’s job is to slop hogs. Their real interests are to keep stoking the fires of Trump Derangement Syndrome throughout the commune.
Advancing toward the mansion, Barr and Durham fight off the lies and misdirection of Adam Schiff, as well as the pretentious Lollipop Guild. They are anarchists with names like Strzok, Brenan, and Clapper, who have been taking turns kicking General Michael Flynn, while an extremely large munchkin, fired-FBI director Jim Comey, sits atop Flynn, threatening prison anytime the poor man protests.
Halting the Flynn beatings, Barr sets sights on scaling the outer echelons of the fortress, unaware that yet another munchkin, Judge Emmet Sullivan is hiding under a rock, waiting. Only after the two gumshoes depart, Sullivan magically appears, ordering the continuation of the Flynn beatings while he scouts for someone, anyone that might make the beatings “legitimate.”
Once inside the castle, Barr and Durham come upon a plush inner lair. Gold, silver, and precious stones are stacked everywhere, flowing from chests with Greek, Chinese and Ukrainian markings. There, Joe Biden, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, and Eric Holder are found luxuriously lounging about, boasting and leaking information to their favorite media outlet, as they get foot rubs by fawning media munchkins.
Durham barges around the media-scribes, ignoring their pitiful outcries and future headlines, pulls back a leaf-adorned curtain to expose what is behind. There, sitting on a thrown made of tax-payer gold, frantically pulling levers and barking orders into a Bluetooth set, was…not the mighty Oz, but former president, Barrack Obama.
Imagine Barr and Durham’s shock. It was not Russian President Putin or Chinese President Jimping, nor even Crooked Hillary, but Obama, a former president of the United States who had been entrusted for eight years to lead our country. Now Obama might conceivably be implicated for consenting to deceptions and obstructions against at his predecessor, Donald Trump, in an attempt to hide nefarious acts.
Sound like a dream, hallucination, or possibly just indigestion? Bet some of you think so. Perhaps. Time will tell, but it’s becoming increasingly palpable he and/or his sycophants, abetted by a corrupt media, have been, behind the Russian hoax that drug on for three years. It allowed virtually nothing else to be done in Congress and, in its wake, has nearly torn this country apart and cost us untold billions of tax dollars. I’ve been writing about this situation for years, and it looks like it might finally be exposed.
As the noose tightens on who knew what and when on the Flynn matter, Obama flippantly said, “The news over the last 24 hours, I think has been somewhat, downplayed, about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get, worried that basic—not just institutional norms—but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”
That’s rich! Under his “rule of law” back in January 2017, he pardoned General James Cartwright, who also pleaded guilty to making false statements, the same charges Flynn now has been defending himself of…and going broke in the process. Obama was probably afraid Flynn would find where the bodies were buried.
There’s considerable uncertainty circulating right now about who knew when and what. I might be from Chebanse, but they taught me that where there’s smoke, there’s fire. If a former president of the United States has done something, or instructed his henchmen to do anything, impeding the progress of the will of the American people, by setting obstacles for an incoming president, I assert that to be nothing less than sedition, subject to rather harsh punishment.
Some will believe I’m just diverting interest away from the pandemic; the one pathetically scaring the bejesus out of the country to forfeit their civil liberties by political hacks like Pritzker, Whitmer, and Cuomo.
Think I’ll exercise my freedom to go for a motorcycle ride now.
During our unlawful house arrest, I’m reading the autobiography of Samuel Clemens, affectionately known as Mark Twain. What I wouldn’t give to hear his humorous views concerning conditions in today’s America. To wit:
Dallas Judge Eric Moye outrageously fined and threw salon owner Shelly Luther in the pokey for seven days for having the gall to open her business, despite the virus. Seems she was unapologetic about possibly losing her business, employees and/or civil rights. This would be a good time to remind readers politicians are letting prisoners out of jail over virus concerns. I can hear Twain laughing at us.
So, is the #MeToo movement dead, or apply only to democrats? Shame on anybody who indignantly lashed out over the Justice Kavanaugh accusations but is now passively on the sidelines concerning Joe Biden’s allegations from Tara Reade. What happened to the “all women should be believed” mantra? This is the very definition of hypocrisy.
Methinks Twain would insist Nancy Pelosi does need a lecture, despite her informing reporter, Kerry Pickett otherwise. Chomping on his cigar, he would give her an unsympathetic reminder she is not the president; she needs to eradicate her head from that expensive freezer and get back to work!
Is the Democrat party really going to nominate Biden for president despite legitimately showing signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s? I despise Biden, but would never be so cruel to a fellow human being not named Pelosi. Additionally, what’s that say about people intending to vote for a candidate who’s seemingly losing his mind? Does that not define Trump Derangement Syndrome?
In light of the information coming out about the FBI entrapping General Flynn, I have two questions – is J. Edgar Hoover running the FBI again, and when is Attorney General Barr going to actually arrest somebody?
You suppose Martha Stewart wonders what’s happening with those four Congressmen accused of alleged insider trading when they sold stock right after a private meeting on the COVID19 epidemic? Hello, what’s going on here?
In other news pushed aside by the media, what really happened to Jeffery Epstein? There’s more to this story, folks. Why isn’t there an enterprising young reporter digging up dirt? I understand people have a fear of being “suicided” by the Clinton’s, but that’s been ruled fake news, right? Having said that, I admit to having a bit of unease whenever mentioning the Clinton’s in my writing.
Do you really believe those virus numbers being regurgitated at you? Would it surprise you to know I don’t? There are too many reports leaking from hospitals of “normal deaths” being labeled corona deaths. If I happen to have the “big one” while eating a cheeseburger, please don’t let them label me a COVID death.
Did you know about the Coronavirus Racial Inequality Task Force? It’s co-chaired by Chirlane McCray, wife of America’s most clueless mayor, Bill de Blasio, in New York City. I hope someone is following the money as New Yawkers didn’t economically fare so well with her last venture.
Reminiscent of a Bolshevik Revolution, Twitter, Face Book and You Tube head honcho’s have announced they will ban posts and video’s with content not meeting, what is essentially, their political views. We might want to rethink these modes of social communication, comrades. There might be a pot of gold out there to the nerd able to produce a popular social media platform not encumbered by the whims of wealthy owners. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Zuckerberg’s Face Book ratings became the next CNN?
What a year 2020 has been. Congress charged into year four of relentless attacks by the Left to eradicate a sitting president, for no valid reason. This was followed by, supposedly a world pandemic, which more than likely was unleashed intentionally on us by a Communist Chinese regime.
The virus, with its inflated death predictions, allowed political despots like Cuomo, Pritzker, Newsome and Whitmer, to zestfully and unilaterally dissolve civil rights across the country. (Where was the ACLU?) This in-turn caused our entire economy to collapse with millions of people losing their jobs. And, mind-bogglingly, WE LET THEM DO IT!
At the same time, bureaucrats, some corporations and many terrified Americans began lecturing everyone to stay home. I understand some people were frightened, but they should consider that other people might not be able to afford to stay home. They should also respect their fellow man’s rights of living in a free country. We were born with that right, just like you have the right to stay home.
Just about the time we might be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel from the virus and bureaucratic despots, it turns out the light we saw was the train carrying Murder Hornets coming at us. How Trump will be blamed for this will certainly be amusing.
Mr. Twain is rolling over in his grave.
