They’re hiding their faces and risking their lives on dangerous vaccines to protect themselves from . . . the common cold. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:
A final report for this year – on the cusp of the new.
And the news isn’t good.
A visit to Kroger yesterday confirms what I saw a few days prior at Earth Fare, subject of my last Diaper Report.
Diapering is on the rise, again.
Because the cases! the cases! are on the rise, again. Just like the last time, these “cases” are nothing more than a positive result – on the same dodgy tests conceded to be dodgy by those who used them, last time, to create the perception of a “pandemic” by making it seem as though practically everyone was getting sick and (unsubtle hint) likely soon to be dead.
“Pandemic” in air-fingers quotes for the same reason that “cases” are in air-fingers quotes; that being to emphasize and ridicule the disingenuous ridiculousness of these terms, as they have been misused.
A pandemic used to mean widespread death, not widespread positive tests. Or fleeting and usually – almost always – not fatal illness. The new meaning means that testing positive for colds – like the Moronicon “variant,” for instance – qualify as “pandemics.” Which is politically useful as it keeps the population in perpetual fear of catching a cold.
Something that can never be prevented.
A “case” used to mean an acute condition of some kind serious enough to require medical care. If you were in the hospital – or under a doctor’s care – you were a case. Now you are a “case” if you take a test that says you’re “positive” – even if (as in most cases) you are fine.
Well, physically fine.
Mentally is another matter.
Millions aren’t sick – and literally almost no one has died from the Moronicon “variant” – but tens of millions are once again terrified of getting sick; of catching a cold that appears to be even less likely to kill 99.8-something percent of them than the Mark I ‘Rona.

There’s reality, and then there’s whatever Democrats and their minions in the press are peddling. From Peter Van Buren at wemeantwell.com via zerohedge.com:
In early December Hillary Clinton appeared on the Today show to read aloud her never-used victory speech from 2016. The scene was bizarre, Clinton tearing up as she read in first-person, present tense about becoming the first woman president, something which in real life did not happen.
She then layered on another alternate reality, one in which President Hillary travels back in time to tell her dead mother “your daughter will grow up and become the president of the United States.”
She glowed; she was hearing applause that never happened.
The unreality of it all was leavened somewhat by the reveal Hillary is selling a video “masterclass” on resilience and the speech is somehow an example of that. While this may be just another example of a Clinton grift, like selling a Bill and Hillary Bass-o-Matic, the thing that stands out is never before has a Democrat loser been reanimated from the grave like Hillary. Al Gore and Michael Dukakis are two of those people you Google to see if they are still alive, and even an attention hound like John Kerry pretends his own presidential wipe out never even happened. A good political rule of thumb is to usher your losers off stage (or make them ambassadors.) Instead, Hillary was on the flagship Today show, not a late night infomercial where garbage like “masterclasses” in resilience usually is peddled.
But Hillary’s delusional take is not hers alone. After a second White Claw the faithful will insist Hillary did win the popular vote, which counts as actually winning in Clinton Math. They’ll quickly tell you Hillary only lost because Trump cheated or the Russians helped. The Dems and the media so believed that Trump did not actually win-win that they spent his entire term in office trying (unsuccessfully) to negate him, impeach him, prosecute him, or just magically wish him away with a fan-fiction interpretation of the 25th Amendment which presupposed Mike Pence was more evil then they were. The high point of the delusion was Russiagate, a saga entirely made-to-order by the Clinton team and fluffed by the media. It’s one thing to self-righteously say “Not my president” (some MSM pundits would add an asterisk to the word president* when referring to Trump) but it is delusional to say “and he can’t be yours, either.”
A trenchant analysis of just how idiocy has become hardwired throughout so much or our sociey, from Jeff Thomas at internationalman.com:
At this point, virtually all of us over the age of forty have encountered enough “snowflakes” (those Millennials who have a meltdown if anything they say or believe is challenged) to understand that, increasingly, young people are being systemically coddled to the point that they cannot cope with their “reality” being questioned.
The post-war baby boomers were the first “spoiled” generation, with tens of millions of children raised under the concept that, “I don’t want my children to have to experience the hardships that I faced growing up.”
Those jurisdictions that prospered most (the EU, US, Canada, etc.) were, not coincidentally, the ones where this form of childrearing became most prevalent.
The net result was the ’60s generation – young adults who could be praised for their idealism in pursuing the peace movement, the civil rights movement, and equal rights for women. But those same young adults were spoiled to the degree that many felt that it made perfect sense that they should attend expensive colleges but spend much of their study time pursuing sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
Flunking out or dropping out was not seen as a major issue and very few of them felt any particular guilt about having squandered their parents’ life savings in the process.
The boomer generation then became the yuppies as they hit middle age, and not surprisingly, many coddled their own children even more than they themselves had been coddled.
You’re a conspiracy theorist if you believe in any conspiracy except those officially approved and peddled by the government and legacy media (like Russiagate). From Patrick Armstrong at strategic-culture.org:
In short, we are supposed to believe that in 2016 the Russian hacked nothing but the election and in 2020 they hacked everything but the election.
The US intelligence community published a report on 10 March, widely reported in the US free speech news media, on foreign interference in the US election (how many oxymorons so far?). The report establishes a new level of idiocy on the long-running “Russiagate” nonsense.
The idiocy began when Trump, campaigning, remarked that it would be better to get along with Russia than not. A sentiment that would not have surprised Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan or any of the others who recognised that, like it or not, Moscow was a fact. A fact that had to be dealt with, talked to, negotiated with so as to produce the best possible result. Why? Well, apart from the diplomatic reality that it is better to get on with your neighbours, the fact that the USSR/Russia was a nuclear power that could obliterate the USA was adequate reason to keep communications alive. If relations could be improved, all earlier US Presidents would agree, so much the better. But for Trump – the outsider – to dare to say so was an outrage. Or more accurately, a hook on which to hang enough simulated outrage to cost him the election. Then, upsetting all expectations, he won. Immediately pussy hat protests, blather about tax returns, Electoral College speculations, 25th Amendment, psychiatrists opining unfitness (COVFEFE: Bizarre Trump Behavior Raises More Mental Health Questions): an entire industry was created to get Trump out, or, if he couldn’t be got out, then at least prevented from doing any of the things he campaigned on. All the swamp creatures were mobilised. The most enduring of these efforts was the Russia allegation. A Special Counsel was created to investigate Russia, Trump and the election. Leaks from this and other investigations fuelled outrage and talk shows.
Other than against some stereotype as a benchmark (until recently stereotyping by race was considered a bad thing), how do you be less white, or black, or brown, or yellow? From Mike Mish Shedlock at thestreet.com:
Is Coca Cola sponsoring racism? That’s the claim. You be the judge.
‘Try To Be Less White’
When I first saw this story I was highly skeptical.
However, the training course is available online and Coca Cola is doing its best to try to back down from the course.
Here’s the course Confronting Racism, with Robin DiAngelo
In this course, Robin DiAngelo, the best-selling author of White Fragility, gives you the vocabulary and practices you need to start confronting racism and unconscious bias at the individual level and throughout your organization. There’s no magic recipe for building an inclusive workplace. It’s a process that needs to involve people of color, and that needs to go on for as long as your company’s in business.
The free into above does not show the ending slide “Try to be less white” but what you can see is galling enough.
The video Tweet by @DrKarlynB shows more of the damning slides.
Late Sunday evening NewsWeek reported Coca-Cola, Facing Backlash, Says ‘Be Less White’ Learning Plan Was About Workplace Inclusion
Coca-Cola, facing mounting backlash from conservatives online, has responded to allegations of anti-white rhetoric after an internal whistleblower leaked screenshots of diversity training materials that encourages staff to “try to be less white.”
A Coca-Cola spokesperson confirmed that the course is “part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace,” but also noted that “the video circulating on social media is from a publicly available LinkedIn Learning series and is not a focus of our company’s curriculum.”
Here is Simon Black’s weekly serving of hard to believe but true stories from the past week. From Black at sovereignman.com:
Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? You might want to grab a drink for this one… or take a moment to listen to some soothing meditation music.
Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, finances, and possibly your blood pressure.
It’s “violence” to mispronounce someone’s name
Let me ask you a question– how do you pronounce the name “Shea” ?
My gut would be “Shay”. Or perhaps “Shay-uh”.
Well, for at least one person, a Ms. Shea Diamond, the name is pronounced “Shee-uh”. Easy mistake to make.
A once great country continues to plummet. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
If ever we needed proof of the expression that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” look no further than Britain, where families may have to start practicing cutting their steak and bread at dinner with a spoon. This is, of course, because Britain’s politicians have now made the absurdly ridiculous move to call for the banning of what Reason magazine called “the most useful tool ever invented” – the knife.
Reason reported this morning that British politicians have “declared war on knives” and are moving swiftly to try and ban them, since gun laws aren’t working to help stop crime altogether:
Having failed to disarm criminals with gun controls that they defy, British politicians are now turning their attention to implementing something new and different: knife control. Because criminals will be much more respectful of knife laws than of those targeted at firearms, I guess.
“No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law,” London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted on April 8.
Not to be outdone, his predecessor, Boris Johnson, currently Foreign Secretary, called for increased use of stop-and-search powers by police. “You have got to stop them, you have got to search them and you have got to take the knives out of their possession.”
Poundland (the British equivalent of a dollar store) announced last week that it will no longer sell kitchen knives in any of its 850 stores. Similar stores are being slapped with fines for selling knives to minors.
Simon Black tracks government absurdities. From Black at sovereignman.com:
Today we’re continuing our new weekly feature, where each Friday we highlight a number of often bizarre stories from around the world that we’re closely following.
Texas tries to pass a law to legalize lemonade stands run by children
When it comes to business, this story pretty much sums up how far the Land of the Free has fallen from its free-wheeling economic golden age.
We’ve covered a number of stories over the years of cops shutting down lemonade stands, and teens being stopped from mowing lawns and shoveling driveways because they don’t have proper licenses and permits.
In this case, two children (ages 7 and 8) had their lemonade stand shut down by local police because they lacked a ‘Peddler’s Permit’, along with approval from the health department, and who knows how many other government permissions.
Some politicians saw this story and decided to pass a law making it legal for children to operate lemonade stands.
On one hand, great news. On the other, it’s pretty sad that a state legislature actually had to pass a law to make this legal.
