The Little Café That Almost Could

A recent story out of Kansas City, the town in which I live, suggests just how eager the Left is to control our lives, right down to the food we eat. The story involves a friendly hole-in-the-wall café whose brave proprietor had had enough. A little background is in order. In 2008, I somehow emerged as the public face of the opposition to a ballot measure that called for a ban on smoking in bars and restaurants in Kansas City. What made this unusual, and what made me an effective spokesman, was that I never smoked. Well, not that effective—my side lost the election, narrowly.


The intro might make you think that this is about is not, it is about masks.
Fortunately, I live in Kansas, out of reach of these Jackson Cty crazies in KC, and we have no mask mandate here.
I won't eat in Jackson County because of this, even though it is only a couple of miles away by car.

How do you eat with masks on ? I mean it’s not like I’m a Harvard grad or anything. I do not feel comfortable going into a restaurant and seeing all the staff wearing them though. It’s an odd feeling. I’m sure if I was a tyrant it wouldn’t bother me.

When I see women in masks, I think: sheep. When I see men in masks, I think: pussies. When I see kids in masks, I think: Call Child Protective Services. I may die from Covid someday (just kidding, no I won't), but I won't go out on my knees before these frauds.

It’s useful to know that the war on second-hand smoke was based on a piece of junk science produced by the Clinton Environmental Protection Agency. Honest epidemiologists immediately pointed out the many flaws and outright fraud in the report. A federal judged vacated the report yet through the media, lying Democrat and feckless Republican politicians at all levels, the lie that second hand tobacco smoke harmed non smokers became “true.” A far greater fraud, that of anthropomorphic global warning, copied the secondhand smoke fraud techniques and, presto!, man made climate change is gospel. What works for tyrants is always repeated so various lies about Covid are absorbed by a public battered by propaganda. At least with Covid there is a healthy percentage of the public that is educating itself and fighting back. I’m encouraged.

"Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them." Frederick Douglass They are testing how far they can push us - lying about bad the virus is. And to keep it that way they are keeping people scared by denying early treatments. Too many of us don't seem to understand ethics & the Bill of Rights. Mask up only if you are in a small, closed, poorly ventilated space. Fresh air circulating inactivates the virus. They have pulled the wool over our eyes before - my doctor says big pharm's statin push is pretty much a crock. Individual physicians are no longer using their training & good brains but relying only on crooked medical associations, their corporate bosses, the bureaucrats at the CDC, FDA & NIH as well as big pharm (which I used to respect).

Back in the 90s my city went through this banning smoking in restaurants because of the "secondhand smoke" craze. This happened after Stanton Glantz, a noted anti-smoking fanatic gave a presentation. Turns out his wife was a researcher funded by big pharma. Just a coincidence, I'm sure. He has also campaigned against e-cigarettes, saying they are harmful and do not help to stop smoking. As a former smoker who could only quit after 50 years of smoking by using e-cigarettes, I beg to differ. They only thing effective to stop smoking is to buy products such as nicotine patches and such from big pharma. Sound familiar? My city would not consider allowing smoking and non-smoking restaurants. They all had to be non-smoking. Again, sound familiar? You cannot have anyone disobeying the "authorities" and using their own judgement. When did we all become compliant sheep obeying our superiors?

You've heard of "going postal:? Maybe the next odious term should be "going academic." We're seeing an awful lot of arson as cause for California's wildfires and at treasured institutions being perpetrated by academics. Here's the latest going on near Redding, California from the Washington Post: Thousands of people have fled their homes to escape a wildfire engulfing a forest in California’s north, which authorities believe was sparked deliberately. Police have arrested a 30-year-old woman on charges of igniting the Fawn fire. Workers at a quarry in Shasta County said they saw the woman trespassing last Wednesday before the fire erupted in a remote canyon

A California woman has been arrested by authorities on suspicion of starting the state's 6,820-acre Fawn Fire. Speaking to reporters on Friday, Shasta County District Attorney Stephanie A. Bridgett said that 30-year-old Alexandra Souverneva of Palo Alto, Calif. had been found with an operable lighter in her pocket. "We received the [CAL FIRE] report yesterday and today we announce that we have filed felony arson charges against her not only for arson but also for committing an arson during a state of emergency. The maximum penalty that she currently faces is nine years in state prison," she said.

When I was in junior high school, the "edgy" novel was Judy Blume's Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, about a girl entering puberty and talking with her friends about periods and bras. How things have changed. Now high schools have graphic novels with text and illustrations favorably detailing all aspects of homosexual sex, including pedophilia. When a mother in Fairfax, Virginia, brought that to the board's attention, the board shut her down. It's time that parents use lawfare and shut these board members down.

While the Biden-Harris administration continues to demonize those who do not wish to be human guinea pigs in a massive experiment with gene therapies and encourages mask mandates and other symbolic but largely ineffective measures to control a virus, a few foreign countries are recognizing that viral illnesses follow a predictable course as they mutate. Reuters reports on Norway: Norway will reopen society on Saturday, the government said, ending its coronavirus-curbing restrictions, which have limited social interaction and hobbled many businesses. The Nordic nation joins a small but growing number of countries, including Denmark and Britain, which have removed all domestic restrictions

Last week, nationwide parliamentary elections were held in Russia. The elections spanned over a period of three days from Sept. 17 to Sept. 19. Leading contenders in this race were the United Russia party led by President Vladimir Putin and the Communist Party of Russia. Also in the race were the nationalist LDPR party, the Just Russia party, the New People party, and myriad independents. The results were declared with the United Russia party winning nearly 50% of the votes while the Communist Party received around 19% of the vote. The United Russia party had around two-thirds of the 450 seats in the Russian parliament which is an absolute majority.

A father in Oklahoma City tackled a local pastor who was seen inappropriately touching his son at a bus stop, leaving the suspect with a cracked skull and a bloody mugshot. "There’s hardly any words that are camera appropriate," witness Lisa Ward said of the incident. "It’s just sickening." Oklahoma City Police arrested the suspect, Michael Coghill, on Wednesday, after he was recorded on camera touching a nine-year-old boy at a bus stop and was confronted by the boy’s father, according to News9. The police department, however, could not confirm to Fox News that the boy's father was the one to confront the suspect due to the Open Records Act.

I recently had a conversation with a reasonably well-informed writer who simply missed the real reasons why most practicing physicians go along with the Fauci Fraud. As a public service, I will attempt to fill in a few gaps. But first, I must define the fraud. There are two basic legs to the fraud. First is the idea that the Centers for Disease Control is in any way concerned with a mission related to its name. The failure of the CDC to endorse any treatment that did not emanate from its exalted halls should give us our first glint of clarity.

As the big picture begins to sharpen on the COVID pandemic, a few things become clear to me. The "vaccine" isn't even a vaccine. It is a radical gene therapy currently being tested on the human race. The vaccine doesn't work for its stated purpose. It doesn't prevent infection. The vaccine is very risky — far more so than getting the disease. The VAERS system for recording vaccine injuries shows breathtaking statistics despite being undermined by erasures, denial of reports, and failure to count eligible reports.

It’s not nearly as complicated as once I thought it was. It’s a top-down insurrection. All that it ever needed was a sufficient number of conspirators, in key positions, to network with each other. Granted, the numbers needed were large. That is why it took so many years to take hold. Once the threshold was reached, however, circa 2015 or 16, the treachery began in full swing. The plotters were delayed by one mistake, a very big one, in 2016. They underestimated the amount of electoral fraud that was needed to place Hillary Clinton in the White House. That set them back four years.

It was either Voltaire or Honoré Gabriel Riqueti, one of the founding fathers of the French Revolution, who observed that the now-former nation of Prussia “is not a state that has an army, rather an army that has a state.” In contemporary times, that description aptly applies to Pakistan. An examination of the history of Pakistan reveals several disturbing consistencies. In Pakistan, few ‘elected leaders’ ever complete their tenure in office. These ‘leaders’ are either executed or jailed after Pakistan's deep state stages a coup. The more fortunate manage to bribe their way out in exchange for being ‘exiled’ to a foreign country, where they live in great luxury.

Almost 100 percent of Americans need to be vaccinated before the country can safely return to normal, President Joe Biden claimed Monday. Biden said that “97%, 98%” is the goal as a country during his much-publicized appointment to receive a COVID-19 booster shot Monday. He offered no explanation for the number. Medical experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have predicted that herd immunity would only require 70% to 85% of Americans to be vaccinated.

As we pointed out, he had Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) parroting the claim. Now, other Democrats have jumped aboard the narrative train including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), the head of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) signed on board as well.

Joe Biden is the worst president we’ve had since the last worst president we had: Barack Obama, who was the worst president since Jimmy Carter. It has escaped no one’s notice. Covid lockdowns and mandates; the destructive, inhumane, callow, disgusting bug-out of Afghanistan; generational theft-level spending; and tyrannical diktats have touched everyone – except Hollywood and D.C., naturally. Turn that flag upside down, Australia here we come. Where people have been “allowed” to congregate they have made their disgust with Joe Biden well known in the coarsest and unsociable of ways – and they’ve been cheered for it! Nearly everywhere you look, people in large groups and small are chanting “F*** Joe Biden!”

Why didn’t you build – forgive me – a wall? Or a fence, from stopping this flood of people from coming across the dam. It looks like a highway when they cross the Rio Grande,” Wallace asked. The response from Mayorkas was simply mindblowing.
