I have only two snippets tonight, but both are serious. The first is a threat to the lives of every person in this nation, the second is the single most abominable thing that we have seen in this election cycle to date.
Trump’s advisor doesn’t know … ANYTHING!
Dr. Scott Atlas, the highly UNqualified White House pandemic advisor, proved himself to be an even bigger fool than I first thought. Atlas did an interview on Saturday with RT (formerly Russia Today), a Russian state-controlled international television network. He later ‘apologized’, claiming not to have known that RT was a Russian media outlet backed by the Kremlin. First off, even I know what RT is! Surely he isn’t that damned stupid, and if he is, then why is he the person advising the Oaf in the Oval on something as critically important as the pandemic???
But what is equally galling is what he said in his interview. Now, remember that Dr. Atlas is a neuroradiologist, NOT a virologist, an immunologist or a specialist in infectious diseases. He has zero qualifications to address matters related to the pandemic – ZERO. And yet, during his 28-minute interview with the Russian media outlet, he uttered such idiocy as …
“It’s tragic. There’s no question about that. But if you wanna know what’s happening right now, I think there’s a gross distortion that has sort of been typical of the reporting on this. And that is that there’s this frenzy of focusing on the number of cases when we see a lot of reasons to be sort of, you know, cautiously optimistic here rather than fearful.
The lockdowns… will go down as an epic failure of public policy by people who refused to accept they were wrong – were wrong, refused to accept they were wrong, didn’t know the data, didn’t care and became a frenzy of stopping COVID-19 cases at all costs.
And those costs are massive. And what’s happening here is that the argument is undeniable. The lockdowns are killing people but they’re not really impactful, the lockdowns.”
Now, while I am not an alarmist and have urged common sense and balance from the very beginning of the pandemic, I am a believer in listening to the experts … and Scott Atlas is NOT an expert in this field!
Contrast that bit of fluff to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s most recent statement …
“We’re in for a whole lot of hurt. It’s not a good situation. All the stars are aligned in the wrong place as you go into the fall and winter season, with people congregating at home indoors. You could not possibly be positioned more poorly.”
Dr. Fauci, who preceded Atlas as the White House pandemic advisor, is in fact an immunologist who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. The numbers support Dr. Fauci’s statement and make a mockery of Atlas’ …
The U.S. now has at least 9,474,845 cases, the highest of any nation on earth, and 236,473 deaths as of this writing at approximately 3:00 a.m. on Monday. These statistics are the highest of any nation on the planet. In the past week, the U.S. has broken records for the number of new cases on at least three days.
Atlas is promoting the idea of ‘herd immunity’, which the scientific community has already said and proven does not exist. It does not exist. There is no herd immunity, and even if there were, it would mean sacrificing those of us who are immune-challenged, who are older and with pre-existing health issues. This is what Mr. Atlas is proposing because … wait for it … because it is what Donald Trump told him he’d like him to say. Trump figured out early on that he could not dictate to Dr. Fauci, so he hired Mr. Atlas to do his bidding. He might as well have just had Ivanka be his pandemic advisor, for Scott Atlas is nearly as big a twit as she is.
In the words of Forrest Gump, “Stupid is as stupid does”
Last Friday, a Biden campaign bus was travelling from San Antonio to Austin, Texas, when suddenly it was ‘joined’ by a group of approximately 100 vehicles, many of them pickup trucks sporting confederate flags and Trump signs. The vehicles aggressively surrounded the Biden bus and accompanying vehicles in an attempt to slow it down and run it off the road. Thankfully, neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris were aboard the bus, but it wouldn’t have made a bit of difference to these assholes.
Videos showed the vehicles lined up along the freeway in wait for the bus, then speeding up and surrounding it as pro-Trump onlookers cheered and laughed. According to people on the bus, the vehicles slowed and appeared to attempt stopping the bus altogether. What might have happened if they had succeeded in stopping the bus? Would they have stormed it and started shooting? There is no doubt in my mind that every damn one of the people in those vehicles was armed to the teeth.
When the bus reached its destination in Austin, a crowd of Trump supporters surrounded the bus and continued the harassment. Fearing the threats would escalate, Democrats canceled the event in Austin as well as another in Pflugerville, Texas, later that day in the interest of public safety. This, my friends, is the act of dictatorial hooligans and as far as I’m concerned, they should all spend the rest of their days in prison, for they are attempting to murder this nation.
I honestly thought the people of this nation … even the lowliest of them … were better than this, but obviously I was sorely mistaken.
But the group of fools and idiots isn’t even the worst of it!
Worse yet is that these assholes were so proud of what they had done that they posted about their exploits on social media, but did the police actually DO ANYTHING??? No, they did not. THEY DID NOT GET OFF OF THEIR FAT ASSES TO DO A DAMNED THING. But wait … you still haven’t heard the worst of it!
The local yokels may have refused to do anything, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation under Director Christopher Wray still, for the moment, takes their oath to the nation seriously and announced that they are investigating. Which set off the HEAD IDIOT in the White House …
“In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong. Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA, who run around burning down our Democrat run cities and hurting our people!
You see the way our people, they — you know they were protecting his bus yesterday. Because they’re nice. So his bus — they had hundreds of cars, Trump, Trump, Trump and the American flag. You see Trump and the American flag. Do you ever notice when you see the other side — I don’t even see much of the other side.”
PATRIOTS???? DID HE CALL THEM … PATRIOTS????
Folks … anybody with a half-ounce of education, with a smidge of common sense, knows that this is NOT how a president talks.
Joe Biden’s response upon learning of the episode …
“Folks, that’s not who we are. We are so much better than this. We’re so much better than this. It’s not who we are.”
THAT … That is how a president speaks.
I was so incensed over Trump’s asinine words that I had to step away, for I was shaking and had three cigarettes lit at one time! Donald Trump … is the most disgusting, hideous piece of flesh that I have ever in my life encountered, bar none, and why he was ever created is beyond me. If he doesn’t lose this election by a significant number of votes, then I wash my hands of this nation and its people. Done. I’m done with this horseshit.
