Bits & Bytes

CDC: The “experts” have officially shortened the self-quarantine time for asymptomatic cases from ten days to five.

PoliMath (@politicalmath) tweeted, “Every time you see a story about the federal gov’t changing their COVID response in light of the winter surge, you need to ask, ‘Why are they doing this now instead of during the summer/fall surge? I have my theory and it’s not flattering.

My theory is that basically everyone working the COVID response at the federal level thought that the South deserved their summer surge, that it was entirely b/c they were too dumb to get vaccinated, so it’s fine to let them suffer.

Also … I never thought about this until Dan Bongino mentioned it, but apparently the summer disease surge in the south is a thing. Like the winter disease surge in the north (which I’ve lived with all my life), it’s about people staying indoors because of the weather. In the south, summer is too hot; in the north, winter is too cold.

CRAZY KAREN: CLICK [1:51] to see the viral video from a Tampa-to-Atlanta Delta flight. The California resident has been charged in Georgia with assaulting by striking, beating, or wounding, a crime which is punishable by a fine and/or up to one year in jail if found guilty.

FAUCI: CLICK [1:48] to see Saint Anthony explain two pieces of previously censored vaccine science. What on earth will cultists like Nicolle Wallace do now?! CLICK [:24].

My fave comments: “Dr. Fauci needs to be censored and perhaps blocked for publicly disagreeing with Dr. Fauci on vaccine development, research, and efficacy.

Pity you can only see his top half, and not the furious back peddling going on underneath.

Fauci is covering his demonic little arse. It doesn’t work. Hello ADE. I feel the rats are jumping ship.” [Note: ADE is Antibody-Dependent Enhancement, which is when a vaccine makes an infection worse. Scientists have been warning from the get go that the ‘rona jabs could cause this.]

FAUXTUS: CLICK [:36] for a montage of Candidate Joe promising to “SHUT DOWN THE VIRUS.”

And, uh, Joe? That “vaccine” you keep harping on? It was the result of President “No Plan” Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed.”

FLU: N.b., This has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the fact that the too-sensitive COVID tests don’t distinguish between the flu and the ‘rona. So shut up.

GASLIGHTENMENT: Over the past week, Facebook and Instagram users have been punished for sharing a quote by one of the leading minds behind the American Revolution.

AZQuotes cites the Thomas Paine quotation as appearing in “Citizen Paine: Thomas Paine’s Thoughts on Man, Government, Society, and Religion” (p.123) John P. Kaminski (2002) Rowman & Littlefield.

LGB: I think the man who called Biden on Christmas and said, “Let’s go, Brandon” to him is the kind of guy who does rude stuff because he thinks he’s a laugh-riot prankster. I dislike bad manners and I hate pranks. But whatever. It’s the Left’s outrage that is the story today. After 5 years of spewing spittle and vicious insults over their Donald “LITERALLY HITLER” Trump, none of these people has any moral authority to complain about what LGB guy said to FAUXTUS… least of all “Fang Banger” Eric Swalwell!

MIGRATION: Census Bureau statistics show that Red states are increasing in population while Blue states are shrinking.

TESLA: A man in Finland decided he’d rather blow up his Tesla than pay the exorbitant bill required to replace its battery. Evidently, a $23,000 bill to replace a battery is par for Tesla’s course. Musk has claimed the total battery replacement should cost between $5,000 and $7,000. But found that the real total is in the $20,000 range.

Another investigation found that Tesla’s claims about battery longevity don’t pan out in real life. But battery issues are not the only problems Tesla vehicle users have encountered. Following nearly a dozen crashes that left one person dead and 17 injured, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened a formal probe into Tesla’s Autopilot and full self-driving (FSD) systems.

You can see the video at the New York Post link, but it’s more than 8 minutes and in Finnish, with no English subtitles.

VAXXX: The “Fauci is an idiot” screenshot above is from an Epoch Times email alert. He wishes we had a mandate banning the dirty unvaxxxed from boarding airplanes … because that has worked SO well on cruise ships.

WHITE ELEPHANT: Grandma’s reactions are so funny! [:49] – This family did a White Elephant (Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa) theme of “stolen from Grandma’s house.” But rather than go buy the tackiest stuff they could find at the thrift store, they each went and visited Grandma … and secretly swiped something! The video is her reactions to them opening up their loot.

GRAMMY NOTES: I painted this by following along with a free Michele Webber tutorial. I love the way the rose looks like it is raising its arms in joyful adoration. 🙂

    As was pointed out by7 an uncle, if liberals weren’t hypocrite lying snakes, they’d have no personality at all.

  2. Apart from his failure to sack Tony Fauci, the biggest mistake Trump made in his Covid response was putting so much emphasis on developing a vaccine, rather than on the true nature of the virus (which for most people poses no more serious threat than garden-variety cold and flu viruses), and aggressively pushing the use of safe and effective treatments. I still cringe whenever Trump takes credit for the vaccines, which are killing and maiming people right and left.

    • Did you see the vid the other day where Trump praised the “booster” and some in the audience actually booed? Trump is proud. A kind of righteous pride can be a strength if you’re in the right – and Trump had much to be righteously proud of, but vainly proud people won’t admit to error.

      I’d still vote for him in the next round, just to see the epidemic of exploding anti-Trump noggins.

      • If the Branch Covidians ever get over their love affair with vaccines (don’t laugh — it could happen after enough people have been damaged, disabled, or deceased by the Fauci Ouchie), you can bet your bottom dollar that Trump haters will say Trump has blood on his hands for having pushed for vaccines.

          Trump tried to get rid of the evil elf, but he’s protected by the dnc. He’s a very big money-maker for their investments in anything Mengele. Trump did say to use things like ivermectin, which was developed for vital infections in humans.

          You got that right. JUST like they demonized hydroxychloroquine five seconds after he said it was showing promise!

      ITA. I’d add that his biggest mistakes were related, since Fauci was in on the pre-COVID-19 plot to use the excuse of a new virus to shut down the world economy and push vaccines on the whole population.

      They never cared about saving lives, but about reducing the population, resetting the world economy, and weakening national laws to pave the way for the New World Order.

      If Trump had understood this, he would’ve at least ignored Fauci (if he didn’t have the authority to fire him) and listened to the doctors at those meetings who were saying all of what you just did.

      Thank you! The classes I took during my marathon free SkillShare month (just ended) made such an enormous difference that I am still looking at my own work and thinking, “Wow … did I do that?!” :-O
