BACK THE BLUE: CLICK [9:53] to hear a discussion about how Dems are now blaming the rise in crime on Republicans. They know they’re lying; they do not care. “They’re either evil or the dumbest people on Earth.” – Brandon Tatum. ITA with Tatum’s assessment about the Left’s desire to eliminate local law enforcement, so they can make it all federal. And from federal, I think they plan to segue to global, which fits right into the End Times prophecies about a One World Government.

BALDWIN SHOOTING: CLICK [6:02] to hear Jon Schneider talk about gun protocols on a movie set. It sure sounds to me like the Baldwin shooting was either the grossest form of negligence or it was murder. He emphasizes repeatedly that there is no reason whatsoever for a real gun to be on any movie set, never mind a real gun loaded with a real bullet.

BIDEN LIES: Again. CLICK [2:06] to hear Biden tell a debunked “true story” about an Amtrak worker who supposedly told him he had traveled more than 2 million miles on Amtrak. Todd Starnes says this is the fourth time as president that he’s told this story and that, as per usual, the media is ignoring it.

I am reminded once again of how the Slimers hammered Trump endlessly for allegedly telling lies. Their cumulative counts included every single instance of an alleged “lie”, many of which were simply policy differences or statements taken out of context. For example, if he made the same stump speech eight times, they counted each “lie” they “found” in the speech eight times. As soon as Biden took office, the presidential lie counters were mothballed.

BORDER: The Border Patrol report for fiscal 2021 breaks all records since the agency was formed in 1925. A total of 1,666,167 illegal immigrants were arrested. An additional 294,352 were stopped after trying to enter at a port of entry without legal papers. And an estimated 400,000 were detected but got away. Nobody knows how many more managed to sneak in without being detected.

When asked why he hasn’t visited the border during the current crisis, Biden said he has been busy (he goes to his beach house every weekend) and anyway, he’s been to the border in the past.

CLICK [2:10] if you can stand to listen to Sockee spin that one. She’s clearly fed up with Peter Doocy, who seems to ask her tough questions every day.

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said, “Joe Biden is failing the American public in every important metric. His lies don’t surprise anyone and Jen Psaki’s spin is commonplace. President Trump left us the most secure border in my continuing 24-year career and Biden threw it all away to appease his far-left base.”

CNN: The town hall featured Biden’s now famous “fist freeze” pose, which the video above mocks with a Napoleon Dynamite theme. [1:12] – CNN’s heavily publicized town hall with President Biden finished dead last with viewers during its prime 8-9:30 pm ET slot. The show, which Curtis Houck said was “89-minute state-run media operation featured questions that were either sapless, unimaginative, or watered down“, drew only 1.2 million viewers. Fox News in the same slot drew 2.8 million.

COVID-19: Two recent studies highlight the potential for Quercetin to aid in the early, at-home treatment of COVID-19. Quercetin is a potent antioxidant found in many fruits, vegetables, seeds, and leaves. It’s safe for most people, inexpensive, easy to obtain without a prescription, and can help zinc get inside your cells, where it can work to stop viral replication. As I understand it, this last is the same action believed to be what makes ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine effective.

In the first study, the quercetin was used with sunflower lecithin, which has been demonstrated to increase absorption in the gut by as much as 20 times, compared to pure quercetin formulations. Covid patients were given 600 mg of quercetin per day (divided into three doses) for seven days, followed by another seven-day course of 400 mg of quercetin per day (divided into two doses).

The second study used a branded form of quercetin called Quercetin Phytosome. To work best, quercetin needs to be taken with Vitamin C and zinc. The B vitamin niacin can also improve absorption. The article goes into a lot more detail.

WebMD says, “Quercetin has most often been used by adults in doses of 250-1000 mg by mouth daily for up to 12 weeks.” Also, “When taken by mouth: Quercetin is possibly safe for most people when used short-term. Quercetin has been safely used in doses up to 1 gram daily for 12 weeks. It’s not known if long-term use or higher doses are safe.” Also, “Quercetin might make kidney problems worse. Don’t use quercetin if you have kidney problems.” See WebMD also for possibly drug interactions.

I googled to try and find a quercetin supplement in the low doses two to three times a day, as were used in the first study. Some customer reviews mentioned tummy upsets, which suggested this was a better plan than taking one higher dose per day. I was not able to find any 200 mg brands, but a couple at 250 mg that said they are made in the USA. One is made by MediCove Health; the other is by Mt Angel Vitamins. It appears that $30 buys enough to follow the two week Study One protocol, so if your primary won’t prescribe effective early treatments for you, you can get this stuff OTC and hope it helps.

FAUXTUS: According to the results of the latest Gallup poll, FAUXTUS’ approvals over the first year have declined faster and further than any prior president.

MANDATES: On Thursday, dozens of employees at a General Electric plant in Greenville, South Carolina, staged a walkout to protest the company’s vaxxx mandate. Their signs said things like, “I stand for medical freedom,” “Coercion is not consent,” and “No jab, no job = Tyranny.” They especially expressed frustration about having been forced to work as “essential” employees throughout the pandemic, but now they have to take the jab of lose their jobs.

  2. Sat down to start my morning news perusal. Milady Jo had the earbuds in. She was watching yesterday’s “high school girl persuaded” video, so I started with that, too. It was so facile, one might almost think it was faked. But I know about the mentality she had before — nobody had theretofore just told her the should-be-obvious.

    Then I turned to today’s B&B. Almost didn’t watch the top healing vid, because it was 700 Club. Started watching it, then called Milady Jo over to watch together from the beginning. (I did stop watching when the 700 Club guy came on – have always had trouble with his used car salesman style.) When they showed the couple walking through the woods, I was concerned that maybe they had lost the boy, but then when they cut to the kid, all healthy and normal, it got real dusty in here.

    I am better fortified to face the ‘news’ now. And the day. Thanks.

      I turned it off when that guy came on also. I almost wrote something about it, then decided my readers are smart enough to click stop if they want to. 🙂

      P.S., The top spot is where I honor God, so I’m super careful what I put there. 🙂
