1. In the true spirit of Goebbels’ understanding of the importance of force to make the lie the motive for policy, we now find that not only did the horde of protestors not even make it to the hallway where Rep. Cortez claims to have been, but she wasn’t even in the capitol building at the time.
Republican Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), whose office is two doors down from Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, noted that “insurrectionists” never made it to their hall when the U.S. Capitol building was breached on Jan. 6. Mace made the note while hitting the media for their attempts to “fan fictitious news flames” about the breach.
On Jan. 6, Mace tweeted that she left her office in the Cannon Building, still inside the Capitol complex but some distance from the Capitol Rotunda and House Chambers: “Just evacuated my office in Cannon due to a nearby thereat,” she wrote. “Now we’re seeing protesters assaulting Capitol Police.”
AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol building where all the action was going down. If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building. But of course, many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building.
(Those wishing to viscerally understand the depth of OAC’s lies need only watch some of her videos where she explains how she was afraid for her life and other fictions. Of course, AOC used the exact same tactic when she made claims about an ICE facility and how she was treated there, which was made up out of whole cloth.)
Today, there was a comment made which suits this story right down to the ground:
Tucker is so right about the writing of false history before our eyes. –A history conjured from a narrative, which was invented from a flock of plastic ducks with, maybe, one real duck in their midst–their facts are lies.
Lies are the communists’ currency. Lies are like our fiat dollars. They’re only worth something if they’re backed by power. Sure, they may appear elaborate and credible on a superficial level, like when Rosemary Adams told me she loved me in grade four, but I believed her because I wanted to.
It seems to me that in Tucker’s examples, the time and distance between the narrative and the accepted-as-fact “history” is quickly shortening, like a tightening noose.
Thank you Johnny U.
2. The Military dictatorship of Burma has learned a lot from the US Democrat Party. Now charging the former leader and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Suu Kyi with some kind of bureaucratic offence.
3. From the US Food & Drug Administration: List of tests that should no longer be used to diagnose Sars Cov 2 (Now that Trump is safely out of office)
This page provides answers to frequently asked questions related to tests that should no longer be used and/or distributed for COVID-19.
This section includes questions and answers regarding the policies outlined in the Immediately in Effect Guidance for Clinical Laboratories, Commercial Manufacturers, and Food and Drug Administration Staff: Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests during the Public Health Emergency (Revised). In this section, this guidance is referred to as the Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests.
For a directory of FAQs related to SARS-CoV-2 testing, see FAQs on Testing for SARS-CoV-2.
(At this link there is a very long list of tests that are not to be used or distributed. We need a doctor or scientist in this field to tell us if what we think is the case. That this is an abstraction, or perhaps a detail-lack of abstraction, to abandoning the PCR test as a bad job.)
“I won’t ever forget this,” the 34-year-old Scarborough man said Wednesday as he was finally released from the Radisson Hotel quarantine centre on Dixon Rd.
It’s not to say this hotel is the same as a prison, but if Duesing didn’t agree to isolate there for three nights, he said, police would take him to jail.
“I thought I had done everything right,” he said.
He got a test in South Carolina that showed he was COVID-19 negative. Despite intense inspections boarding his American Airlines flight in Charlotte, he was cleared to travel.
But when he got to Pearson International Airport Sunday night, Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) agents didn’t accept his rapid test. They gave him a new test and held him against his will in a COVID containment hotel where he could not leave his room.
(If indeed it is $2000.00 for the three nights, then I would have to pick jail. Which brings up some questions. Would you be in your own cell? Or is health really not the issue and they would put you in a small room, locked with actual criminals, and probably violent ones since non-violent criminals rarely do prison time, and where your chances of actually catching Kung Flu is higher than wherever you were in the tropical sun, which was clearly established LAST spring, to kill the damn virus. If they jail you with strangers, I call shenanigans.)
5. Biden signs more executive orders than ANY other new president.
