First is an interesting article from the Intercept-
The Department of Homeland Security is quietly broadening its efforts to curb speech it considers dangerous, an investigation by The Intercept has found. Years of internal DHS memos, emails, and documents — obtained via leaks and an ongoing lawsuit, as well as public documents — illustrate an expansive effort by the agency to influence tech platforms.
Full article, HERE.
And things like this statement-
Geoff Hale, the director of the Election Security Initiative at CISA, recommended the use of third-party information-sharing nonprofits as a “clearing house for information to avoid the appearance of government propaganda.”
Just scare the hell out of me. WHO are those non-profits? What are their aims???
And then there is this one from The Atlantic-
LET’S DECLARE A PANDEMIC AMNESTY
We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.
Full article, HERE.
Aside from the BS in both articles, and outright lies, Oster has also said this…
But now that they are in danger of losing all their power, they suddenly want to be ‘friends’ and go along to get along…
And now AFT head Randi Weingarten is trying to rewrite history concerning the closures of schools during the pandemic saying that had NO impact on kids learning and wasn’t the teachers union’s fault…
Funny how the test scores of the private schools stayed around their norm before the pandemic, while public schools dropped significantly…
So, not no, but HELL NO to any amnesty agreement!!!
You shoved that crap down our throats and revelled in your position of power and ‘authority’, constantly reminding us you were large and in charge…
So go piss up a rope. No amnesty, no playing nice with you, we’ll give you the same level of ‘compromise’ you gave us… Zip and nada!
Forgive and forget ? Nope, lessons have been learned and should not be forgotten – ever.
Now that we have had time go, its time to do the research now and find out DEFINITELY what damages (if any) were done by the vaccine. We have plenty of data and at least a billion test subjects – some trends should be apparent. And should be publicly shared with all. Science is never settled, it should be tested for truth.
And if it is found that the people who were pushing for mandatory vaccination KNEW about the danger and ignored it, then they should be prosecuted, just like any other party who did the same with products they produced.
Originally I was willing to cut the Atlantic bint some slack. But the more I ponder it the less slack I’m willing to give.
I give people who made bad choices up to about May or June 2020 slack. Anyone who advocated masks and other health theater BS after that deserves all the crap they get. Anyone who wanted vaccine mandates likewise.
PS you have the link to the article wrong
OH and I blogged something on the wuflu thing too
Try saying sorry – https://ombreolivier.liberty.me/try-saying-sorry-first/
It’s curious and sad that these people want to forget anything that makes them look bad and remember anything that (they think) makes their opponents look bad.
Compare and contrast their attitude on Banghazi and Afghanistan versus their attitude on January 6th…
“LET’S DECLARE A PANDEMIC AMNESTY”
I have an idea. Let’s prosecute to the fullest.
“The Department of Homeland Security is quietly broadening its efforts to curb speech it considers dangerous, ”
Canada is not so quiet about it.
The captain of the Mother Effing Ship thinks it’s funny that an 82 year old man got hit on the head with a hammer and she made a funny cuz that’s what good Christian women do.
Geeez: “Pelosi must have been drinking again…because he ‘got HAMMERED’ 🙂 heh heh!!”
Paul Pelosi has clearly been self destructing for a while.
The DUI, and now an incident with a San Francisco activist gay prostitute who is now somehow a MAGA terror soldier for some reason. If even the San Francisco prostitutes are actually MAGA, then opponents of Trump have zero political future anywhere in America. It is many hundreds of thousands of times more likely that the prostitute used drugs, and caused problems thanks to the Democrat impaired security situation in the bay area. It is many hundreds of thousands of times more likely that Paul Pelosi brought the prostitute home with him, past the Pelosi residence security.
So, the hammered joke is funny.
It would also be funny if Pelosi went on a helicopter ride, and fell out into the ocean, or fell out onto Tarpean rock.
Folks in their eighties get a pass when they haven’t spent their entire lives hurting other peoples, and when they are not still doubling down in their service to evil.
Mao Zedong was 82, and Stalin was 74. They were evil men that living humans were well rid of. Christ calls no one to respect evil, or to celebrate evil, and age has nothing to do with the matter.
Nancy Pelosi has been working towards the current horrors for at least thirty years. She went all in now on trying to get things going, because she fears death. She either fears oblivion, or she fears hell, and is stupid enough to think that political power can forestall old age.
Paul Pelosi has been a willing collaborator in her continued political career.
It is very Christian to mock pagans and heathens who believe that idol worship will make them immortal. Spoilers, it does not.
And the substance abuse of both Paul Pelosi and of Nancy Pelosi leads to events beneath the gravitas that folks may desire for the Speaker of the House.
The Ace of Spades has a very good response to the Atlantic & Amnesty.
Yep, no “amnesty”.
The Covidiots and Dems (but I repeat myself) have learned nothing and forgotten nothing from this, and they now want to just move on without even going over their many failures and insane decisions and the effects on the country?
Hard No to that.
Here are a couple more “yah, NOPE” takes on “amnesty.”
Michael P Senger, an attorney and author of “Snake Oil: How Xi Jinping Shut Down the World” writes:
Tim Meads at Daily Wire:
I’m a French Canuck, and our motto which you can read on Quebec license plates is “Je me souviens” (“I remember…”)
The Left calls for “Amnesty for me, but not for thee.”
“We have to put these fights aside and declare a pandemic amnesty. >>>We can leave out the willful purveyors of actual misinformation<<< while forgiving the hard calls that people had no choice but to make with imperfect knowledge."
Remember, to the Left, truth is "disinformation".
Murderers have a tendency to downplay their actions. They hope it gives them years in prison instead of a neck-tie party.
All- Good points, and yes, others said it better than I did. Francis, FWIW, I took Ivermectin and HCQ along with steroids and was over the WuFlu in 5 days. No hospital, no nothing…
And we’ve seen more and more of this ‘let’s make friends’ stuff now that the left is losing control. What a surprise…NOT!
I “let’s make friends” a euphemism for “Throw them in a pit and walk away?” Cuz, I’d be for that.
Copied from my post over at Miguel’s Gun Free Zone
“These precautions were totally misguided. In April 2020, no one got the coronavirus from passing someone else hiking. Outdoor transmission was vanishingly rare. Our cloth masks made out of old bandanas wouldn’t have done anything, anyway. But the thing is: We didn’t know.”
Actually we did know that the cloth/paper masks were useless, we knew that outdoor transmittal was almost nonexistent, we knew that UV from sunlight killed the virus in seconds, we knew that children were at almost no risk of suffering more than cold symptoms from the ‘rona, and we knew that there was no justification for closing schools for two years. We were not allowed to have honest discussions about the recommendations, no matter how many times they flip-flopped, of people more interested in profit and power than doing their jobs protecting the population.
Added here: We still have idiots (Charlie Crist for example) who think we need to mask up even though the CDC has admitted that even the N95 masks are only marginally effective. We now know know that the so called vaccine boosters don’t prevent catching the Wu Flu or transmitting it to others, yet the CDC is still pushing boosters in the face of admission by a major Pharmaceutical maker that they never tested it for efficiency. We have the CDC approving vax boosters for minors with actual testing on eight mice. Forgive and forget, HELL NO!
Thing about amnesties, you have to have certain circumstances to even be in a position to deliver.
Leave aside my strong feelings about events involving loved ones.
Actions have persuaded me that specific people are not fit for certain positions of trust and responsibility. Yes, difficult circumstances. But, if one easily behaves unethically in one set of difficult circumstances, a reasonable man may predict that future difficult circumstances will result in unethical behavior, and hence that positions of trust and responsibility should be restricted to those not proven inadequate.
I am not in a hiring position. I am able to publicly state whether or not an organization’s hiring practices strike me as conducive towards fulfilling whatever responsibilities it purportedly is competent to discharge.
Additionally, if a disease can possibly be worth economic shut down, it is appropriate to consider whether existing standards for handling pathogen samples are in fact adequate.
After people I had previously been willing to trust have covered themselves in glory, I am not seeing anyone that I would really be willing to trust to say ‘No, Bob, this person you are ranting about is in fact competent to hold a position of responsibility’.
The very possibility of amnesty hinges on the question of how similar my attitudes are to the attitudes of others.
NRW- Well said, and ALL TRUE!!!
Bob- Excellent points!
