I may be more distraught than usual as I’m dealing with the illness of a beloved pet, but I think even if I were not I’d have to acknowledge that in the absence of any rational leadership things quickly are spinning apart here. (Snip) Is there no good news? I always look for some and, yes, there is some this week, even in the face of feckless, incompetent leaders. Merck says it has developed a pill which prevents mild and moderate cases of COVID from turning into serious health problems. The pill can be taken at home, which should relieve the pressure on hospitals and medical staff.


Ms Feldman surveys the ongoing damage, including shortages and open borders, with a keen look at the clogged delivery system of container ships and trucking.

Maybe we just need to prioritize certain kinds of cargo. Nikes can be done without very easily. Probably half of them eventually get stolen anyway. Electronics are wonderful but my computer and my Alexas should last a few more years, as should my phone. People can cut back on Christmas gifts, but I had to go by the toy section of a Walmart yesterday on my way to get dog food and the shelves were brimming with toys. With a bit of coordination I think a lot of the current problem can be solved.

The announcement of a new coming pharna take the money covid pill is nothing to celebrate. Ivermectin is proven, currently available, safe, highly effective at reducing covid symptons to the point of cure, and BANNED, while government, pharma, media, and tech allow thousands to die needlessly by witholding the life saving drug.

Nine months. That is the elapsed time that Biden and his masters required to completely Fubar America. And they are not done. BHO's Great American Reset is underway. By January, we will be Venezuela.

Ms. Feldman, I wish you the best in your care for your pet, that’s always devastating. You are spot on with your analysis of the $3 Trillion Dollar Demoncrat Party Money-Laundering bill and the destruction to the economy, and the theft of our (middle class) savings. I fear for my Son and his daughters..

FTA: "How damn crazy is this?" How damn crazy is it that none of this sparks significant public reaction but mumbling and the usual conservative lip service? The GOPe stands by "powerless" until Mitch can make the best UNIPARTY deal and call it the best they could do for the American people. Right now Manchin and Sinema are "moderate" heroes holding back the flood...but it will come, with GOPe "bipartisan" support when the radicals are finally beaten back and a deal can be safely made. Too much $$$ at stake for everyone. It warms my heart to see the daily demonstrations at Camp Lejune demanding justice for LTC Scheller, and at the DC jail for the January 6th "insurrectionists", Wait, there are none, not even a bunch of sidewalk candles and cardboard signs. Meanwhile, some advocate the watering of the tree of liberty. Let's see some lesser action first...but there is none. Just bold, empty words. When moderates finally figure out their prosperity is at stake. When "real conservatives" finally get the message that the GOPe is not their savior. When thinking adults finally act...and demand...risking their permanent record...but when will that be?

#3, I don’t know how accurate it is but a relative who works for SpaceX, is brilliant and has some insider contacts told my that Pfizer is coming out with a covid pill which is essentially Ivermectin with a couple of inert ingredients thrown in so as not to infringe on Ivermectin’s patent. I hope he’s right about that.

"Our" side needs to be covering/talking about this on a "Personal scale" basis...if you count the general Pop as 330Million: Electric Car spending alone? $528.000 for every man-woman-child in America and if you, your spouse or your kids are not taxed to pay it? Some one else has to pay their share(Husband wife+2 kids? $2112 either additional taxes/costs or someone else has to cover it + their own share) Total package? $10,060.00 per Man/Woman/child. (Husband, wife, 2 kids?= $40,240.00 household NEW taxes/fees/costs...or someone else has to cover it + their own share) The numbers are even Yuuuuuge'r if you calculate by who is actually Taxed, instead of who just "exists": in 2020, out of 176.2 individuals and married couples who could file a tax return, about 144.5 million of them actually filed a tax return. Of the 144.5 million, 75.1 million filers paid no taxes after deductions and credits. Another 32 million households did not file a tax return. In total, about 107 million Americans (or 60.6 percent of households) paid no federal income taxes. That leaves 92.5 Million to pay it ALL. $37,837, ea.(In '92 under the new Clinton Tax/spend/Paperwork small construction company with 35 (constantly changing) employees, where I treated them as "contract" fell into the "Must treat as fulltime employees, do witholdings etc, and filing costs meant I would have to hire a full time office person, pay that cost out of pocket, doing so would have meant my foreman made more than ME, I could have cut two seasonal/apprentice workers...but production would also drop, I would have to work more/harder and still bear the costs. Given the options I said 'screw it', closed up, let everyone go, 35 jobs, the taxes/fees, property tax(home, office and warehouse/shop), cash flow to the merchants that supplied me.."poof" from the local economy..I went to work as Traveling Restoration Carpenter, specializing in Historic Properties, mainly State/Federal. Working only when/where I wanted, paid on a Federal Scale that ended up equaling what I had previously made 'net' with 35 employees, but with zero overhead, zero contributions to any local economy, all of my living/traveling expenses now deductible. We can quite logically expect that thousands, if not Millions will make a similar choice when confronted with THESE New Taxes and fees...Just close the doors, retire, work solo contracts, go off Grid...Go Galt)

This is the worst thing a democrat wants to hear. Its the same reason why democrats hate Florida. In Florida they use medications that treat covid patients at home. Notice Biden has NEVER talked about therapeutics in treating the virus. You see, PANIC works best for hypocrite democrats.

Is Clarice unaware that we have had "a pill which prevents mild and moderate cases of COVID from turning into serious health problems." for more than a year? And that the CDC and FDA have made them all but illegal to use for Wuhan flu, even though they are FDA-approved safe generic drugs? If anyone knows Ms. Feldman, they should point her to info about Uttar Pradesh and Japan rapidly ending the Wuhan virus problem with ivermectin. Most American media will NOT cover this story, but the facts are out there if you look.

#7, there is no active patent now on ivermectin, all are expired and now a generic is legal. This is a problem for a big drug maker. They MUST have sole rights to a drug to make a big profit. As for Pfizer, I'm sure that they want to CREATE a patentable chemical from an unpatented chemical, so that they can charge $60 a pill instead of $3 a pill. Chemists are expert at this, and there are advanced drug design software to do this. I managed a project in Georgia and Ukraine to examine the antiviral effects of a range of similar chemicals, designed in this way, around a chemical that had some antiviral capability but had toxic side effects. The project was to test variations to see if they could eliminate the toxicity while retaining the antiviral effects. Many compounds were tested, and none with the desired effects was found, unfortunately. Take this subgroup and replace it with another chemical group, but leave the active portion of the molecule alone. Now it's a different chemical with the same active site, so the activity is probably preserved. Then you have to look what the replaced part of the molecule brought to the function, such as solubility, or other issues in the overall effect, hopefully not toxicity. Some chemicals are nearly insoluble in water, a serious problem for a drug. Drug design and testing.

Fauci says new COVID variant called Mu

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday said that the new Mu variant of COVID-19 is not considered to be “an immediate threat” to the US. Federal officials are “keeping a very close eye” on the virus mutation, though its “not at all even close to being dominant” in the US, the White House chief medical advisor said. “Bottom line, we’re paying attention to it. We take everything like that seriously, but we don’t consider it an immediate threat right now,” Fauci said during a White House COVID-19 briefing.

The American Medical Association (AMA) is calling for the "immediate end" to the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19, and for doctors to stop prescribing it for that purpose, amid a spike in the use of the drug. Ivermectin, often used as a deworming agent in animals and sometimes for humans, is not approved to treat COVID-19 and has not been shown to work for that purpose. Poison control centers have recorded a five-fold increase in calls related to ivermectin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

CNN spent weeks hyping Saturday’s star-studded "We Love New York: The Homecoming Concert," which it planned to broadcast from New York City’s Central Park. The event was supposed to celebrate the city’s reopening after coronavirus shutdowns. Instead, performances by the night’s biggest names – including Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and others – were canceled as rain and dangerous lightning ahead of the approaching Hurricane Henri prompted the concert’s organizers to interrupt, and later end, the show.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky has been making the media rounds. During her most recent appearance on CNN, The Conservative Treehouse caught her making a startling admission: The vaccines neither prevent people from catching COVID nor from spreading COVID. At most, they simply reduce the severity of the symptoms people experience if they do catch COVID. From this statement, Sundance draws the logical conclusion: Why should people get vaccine passports if they are both as contagious and as vulnerable to contagion as their unvaccinated cohorts?

One exception is the inaugural address, where the slate is clean and they have an uncluttered chance to define themselves and how they want to be measured.

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Yasmin Vossoughian Reports,” Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) argued that the $3.5 trillion price tag for the Build Back Better Act reconciliation package “is a modest investment” for an economy the size of America’s. Torres said, “[T]here’s misconception about the price tag of the Build Back Better Act. The Build Back Better Act, the original draft, it is not 3.5 trillion over the course of a year. It’s over the course of ten years. So, it’s $350 billion. Which, for a $20 trillion economy like ours, is a modest investment. So, I think it’s shortsighted to focus on the price tag.”

Benedict Cumberbatch is reflecting on playing a closeted cattle rancher who falls in love with a young man in 1920s Montana in his new movie “The Power of the Dog.” The Oscar-nominated actor plays Phil Burbank, a hypermasculine rancher who inspires fear in awe in those around him—a reign of terror that comes from a deeply closeted sexuality. His made-up persona runs into some trouble after his brother (Jesse Plemons) brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her queer son (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.
