New York Times Uses 4 Narrative Engineers
To Spin Defensive Tale Protecting
One of Their Perkins Coie Sources
Michael Sussmann

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 9/16/2021 12:02:44 PM

The New York Times needed to put four of their top Trump-Russia narrative engineers on a defensive story about John Durham possibly indicting Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann over his involvement in pushing the Trump-Russia fraud to the FBI on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Michael Sussmann was one of the primary story-tellers used by The New York Times as a source to write articles about the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory. Durham might indict Sussmann for lying to the FBI because Sussmann said he wasn’t working for Hillary Clinton, yet Sussmann billed Hillary Clinton for the hours he spent pushing the Trump-Russia story.


We may yet hear from John Durham - on Michael Sussman… I have always preferred those usually effective persons who work quietly rather than running to a TV camera/mic every other day or so. We’ll see...

A quick note to any new Ldotters here: if you see the words 'Perkins Coie,' immediately train your eye/mind to recognize the presence of a Pig-in-a-Pantsuit somewhere nearby. We shorten that to PIAPS. We are in danger of an appearance as long as she is this side of the sod.

Not surprising that the NYT would send a team of their Knotseez to defend numerous human pukes.

FTA: 'A “theory”? Too funny. No, there is actual evidence this is exactly what happened.' My understanding is that a hypothesis is a proposed explanation of something real, as yet to be proven, until tested by experiment. Then, and only then,If confirmed, it becomes a theory. Kind of like the Theory of Gravity. Hard to argue that gravity is not really true. Just like this. So maybe it is a theory. The Theory of PIAPSian Evildoing.

As the wife and mother of engineers, I resent the use of the word "engineers." Japan has tons of engineers and very few lawyers; the US is the exact opposite. I vote for more real engineers for America!

Joe Biden's Angry, Divisive Vaccine Mandate
Threat Has Failed Miserably

A little over a week ago, Joe Biden gave what was perhaps the most disturbing speech a president has given in modern history. It was everything the media used to accuse Donald Trump’s speeches of being. Biden’s anger flowed through divisive rhetoric as he ranted that he was “losing patience” with the unvaccinated. That division was accentuated by the hysterical claim the vaccinated need to be “protected” from the unvaccinated, a contention that ignores the scientific facts on who can spread COVID (i.e. everyone can).But the fear was the point. (snip) that strategy has been a complete failure.

On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, at the very spot where United 93 went down, George W. Bush basically ignored the Islamic terrorist perpetrators and targeted those he views as domestic extremists. That prompted Lane Scott to wonder if anyone worse than Bush had shown up over the past 20 years. As it happens, one strong candidate just weighed in. “Have you noticed how strikingly similar both the mindsets and actions between the suicide bombers at Kabul’s airport, and the anti-mask and anti-vax people here?

WASHINGTON — As more than 10,000 mainly Haitian migrants shelter under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, as part of a new surge of migration to that stretch of the U.S. border, Immigration and Customs Enforcement is planning to ramp up deportation flights to Haiti over the next week, according to internal documents obtained by NBC News. Next week, ICE plans to fly eight deportation flights to Haiti and will then increase that number to 10 per week, according to one of the documents. A few deportation flights just restarted in the past few days in response to the surge of Haitians.

The possible link between CCP virus vaccinations and menstrual changes should be investigated to clear up the doubts, a reproductive immunology lecturer from Imperial College London said. In an editorial published on Thursday in the British Medical Journal, Dr. Victoria Male said failing to thoroughly investigate reports of menstrual changes after CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccination will likely fuel fears that the vaccines can hurt women’s chances to have children. (snip) by Sept. 2 more than 30,000 cases of menstrual disorders and unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination had been reported in the UK to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency’s (MHRA) yellow card surveillance scheme for adverse drug reactions.

William F. Buckley’s desire to “stand athwart history and yell ‘Stop!’” described a personality type more than a political agenda. Conservatives, by well-earned reputation, tend to revere traditions and institutions, trust authority, and favor measured, incremental change. Dana Carvey’s impersonation of George H.W. Bush caricatured the type brilliantly: “Wouldn’t be prudent, wouldn’t be prudent at this juncture.” Without knocking prudence, however, shouting “Stop!” is only a smart strategy when you’re ahead. It doesn’t help when you’re losing. (snip)Stopping time now would enshrine the stupidity, cruelty, and moral bankruptcy of radical leftist wokeism.

Some states are set to receive fewer doses of monoclonal antibody treatments after the Biden administration switched the distribution system this week. Demand for monoclonal antibodies, used to treat non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients, has shot up in recent weeks, leading to what some officials have described as a shortage. The Biden administration tipped off states in early September that it was limiting distribution of the treatment before abruptly switching on Sept. 13 from letting sites directly order the doses to putting the federal government in charge of allocation to states, which can then choose where to send them. Some state officials say they weren’t notified of the change until late Sept. 13, and that

The Biden administration this week slashed the doses of lifesaving coronavirus antibody treatment to Florida, giving the state less than half of what is needed for a routine week, prioritizing “equitable distribution” — a move some suspect is a form of revenge against Republican governors whom the president vowed to get “out of the way.” The Biden administration this week began to cut the distribution of monoclonal antibodies to red states, such as Florida and Alabama, contending those states, including Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, and Louisiana, are comprising too big a share of the supply in recent weeks — 70 percent. “HHS will determine the amount of product each state and territory
