Mind-Boggling Milano Stupidity

On so many levels.

I normally only see dumbfuck Alyssa Milano’s tweets when someone does an article about a particularly stupid one…

OK, so I end up seeing a lot of the ditz’s tweets. Anyway, I saw this one today.

Cancel culture is being weaponized by the right/Putin. Take notice of who they are targeting & what is trending. Are they trying to hurt Trump’s most vocal critics? Yup. The misinformation campaign has begun. Be vigilant in what you post on social media. Truth still matters.

Yes, per reigning supergenius Milano, “cancel culture, the Social Justice Howler Monkey War on wrong-think — ie- anything the left disapproves of, doesn’t understand, contradicts them, and very occasionally actual bad things (but usually only when done by someone they disapprove of*) — is actually a Putin/Russian plot to target anti-Trump left-wingers.

It couldn’t possibly be that when idiots adopt social justice theory, better known as paranoid schizonphrenia, as national policy, no one — including themselves — can avoid committing a triggering microagression, in some snowflake, somewhere. Thus, they end up — inevitably — eating their own.

No? Here’s the Wikipedia definition of microaggression:

Microaggression is a term used for brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioural, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative prejudicial slights and insults toward any group, particularly culturally marginalized groups.

 

Here’s their definition of paranoia:

Paranoia is an instinct or thought process which is believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of delusion and irrationality. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself (i.e. the American colloquial phrase, “Everyone is out to get me”). Paranoia is distinct from phobias, which also involve irrational fear, but usually no blame. Making false accusations and the general distrust of other people also frequently accompany paranoia. For example, an incident most people would view as an accident or coincidence, a paranoid person might believe was intentional. Paranoia is a central symptom of psychosis.

 

Someone with a Wikipedia login should cross-link those two articles. And Milano’s.


* Thus, long-time racist, child-groping, SOB Creepy Joe gets a pass.

This should make the prez election results interesting.

Iran has issued a warrant for the arrest of Trump and 35 others, for the killing of Soleimani, Iran’s ex-bossman for terror ops.

In the old days, when I still had hope for America, this would just be good for a chuckle. But we’ve entered the Crazocracy, which makes Heinlein’s “Crazy Years” look like short, well-behaved house party. But I think that education, reasoning ability, impulse control, schizophrenia, et al have irreversibly devolved to the point that…

Should Trump lose to whomever Dementia Boy Gropin’ Joe’s sock puppet handler turns out to be, there is a very strong possibility that the inbred idiots who believe that saying bad things about Trump makes them true, will extradite Trump to Iran.

They won’t consider the fact that Soleimani was a combatant conducting military operations. They won’t consider the impact on future foreign policy, or peacekeeping operations. They won’t consider the fact that the Iranian government hates America, not just Trump, and this won’t pacify them. They won’t consider the fact that they’ll establish the precedent that they in turn can be extradited for hurting some enemy country’s feelz. All that will count is Orange Man bad, get him!.

ChinCOmmon Cold

No shit. I was trying to point this out more than two months ago.

CDC Antibody Studies Confirm Huge Gap Between COVID-19 Infections and Known Cases
These results confirm something we already knew: The COVID-19 infection fatality rate—deaths as a share of all infections—is much lower than the crude case fatality rate—deaths as a share of known cases. That is bound to be true when testing is limited and a virus typically produces mild or no symptoms. At the same time, the CDC’s antibody studies imply that efforts to control the epidemic through testing, isolation, quarantine, and contact tracing will not be very effective, since they reach only a small percentage of virus carriers.

 

Pay attention. Antibody testing is showing that ChinCOVID cases actually exceeded known cases by 12:1…

two to three months ago. And if you looked at the datapoint updates on my prediction post, you’ll realize that estimate may be far too low. One study suggests it’s as much as 80:1.

We freaking well know that SARS-CoV-2 infections are everywhere, and have been since at least December last year. Yes, kiddies; before the CCP even announced the “new” betacoronavirus strain. By early January it had already spread to Ohio.

This post-lockdown “surge” we’re allegedly seeing? If you started testing for any other coronavirus, rhinovirus, or influenza virus, you’d “suddenly” see a “surge” in those, too. It’s not a surge in “new cases.” It’s a surge in testing. They’re finally seeing what was already there.

In Georgia, by the time of the April peak in known-positive cases, they were testing 2,000-2,500 people per day. In the past four days alone, Georgia has done 78,839 tests. That’s an average 19,710 tests per day; almost 8 times as many as during the April peak. 8.3% of all tests come back positive. Of course we’re seeing more.

Georgia’s population is 10,617,423, and ChinCOVID has been loose in every county for months. I think every county went positive before the lockdown. This suggests that, rather than the 77,210 reported cases, we’ve had 881,246. In Georgia, which actually has fewer per capita cases than many states (ranked 16th), there’s better than a 1 in 12 chance you already have or had ChinCOVID. And probably never noticed.

As mentioned above, one batch of researchers looking at antibody tests, think it may be 80 times the reported number of 2,637,439 nationwide.

That’s 210,995,120 cases. 64.3% of the entire population. If they are correct, there’s only a 1 in 3 chance that you don’t already have (or had) it.

If they are correct, then instead of a 11% mortality rate, it’s really just 0.06%. If the lower –and more pessimistic — estimate of 12 times the known cases is correct, then the ChinCOVID mortality rate is 0.91%.

The mortality rate for seasonal flu is 0.06 to 0.11%.

We let our glorious leaders destroy the economy and human rights for the fucking common cold.

If you think everyone abso-goddam-lutely needs to wear a mask, why in hell weren’t you wearing one year-round before this?

DC Statehood?

So the news is full of reports that H.R.5803 – Washington, D.C. Admission Act passed in the House. Didn’t think about it much until I saw that it passed on a 232-180 vote. Then I started scratching my head. Because that’s a fail vote.

The “District” which is the “Seat of Government of the United States” was established constitutionally; Article I, Section 8. It’s presidential electors were granted by the 23rd Amendment. To shrink the federal District down, and granted the remaining area of the District a state requires a constitutional amendment.

By Article V, amendments have to be approved by “two thirds of both Houses. They needed 290 pro-statehood votes, not a simple majority. It failed.

Reading the resolution makes it clear: they aren’t amending the Constitution; they’re trying to do this purely by legislation. Constitution; what’s that? We don’t need no steenkin’ constitution.

But let’s say that they can constitutionally shrink the District. In fact, they’ve done that before. But the precedent established that the “retroceded” land goes back to the state that had ceded it to the federal government originally. That would be Maryland in this case.

But if they’re going to make that diamond-with-a-bite-out-of-it into a state, Article IV, Section 3 comes into play.

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

That gets a bit complicated. I figure already-blue Maryland would go along with it, to boost the Dems in DC, but the process does have to be followed.

Instead, these idjits are using the precedent of admitting federally administered territories that were never part of a state in the first place.

I almost wish Yertle McConnell would let this pass the Senate, just to watch the constitutional/precedential/judicial shit show that would ensue. I’d demand that every judge seated in the District recuse themselves as being a party to the dispute, including every sitting Supreme Court Justice.

More on the ChinCOVID Spread

Datapoint, 6/25/202: Worldometer reports 2,487,638 total US cases, but…

US health officials believe 20 million Americans have had the coronavirus
U.S. officials believe as many as 20 million Americans have contracted the coronavirus, suggesting millions had the virus and never knew it.
[…]
Twenty million infections would mean about 6% of the nation’s 331 million people have been infected, leaving a majority of the population still susceptible to the virus.

I think that estimate is way too low. In April, New York state antibody testing showed 13.9% positive; a rate more than twice as high as what the feds are claiming now, which would have extrapolated to 2,703,550 cases in that state alone, two months ago. About the same time a small Massachusetts study found 30%. Currently, Georgia — with a much lower known infection rate than those states — is running a mere 5.9%.

Georgia ChinCOVID Deaths

As of this writing, Georgia reports 2,642 ChinCOVID deaths. 1,182 of those were in long-term care facilities.

44.7%

I think we’ve identified the primary morbidity indicator. Jeez; Georgia wasn’t even one of the states that made the homicidal call to require nursing homes take in ChinCOVID patients. Having spoken to Georgia nurses who’ve worked in nursing homes over the years, I’m willing to place the blame on the administrators.

Amusingly, the Journal constipation, like other muddia outlets, is spinning the “surge” in “new” cases.

Georgia just reported 1,800 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, the highest number the state has reported in a single day since the pandemic started.

 

The Georgia Department of Public Health on Saturday reported 1,800 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the statewide total to 63,809.

Not quite. GA DPH actually reported 89 new cases on Saturday (preliminary). The other 1,711 were old cases just now being reported. Judging by the changing graph, some of those cases may go back to as early as May 11. Not all the labs use electronic reporting, so there can be rather long lag times before DPH hears about cases; that’s why DPH calls the recent numbers “preliminary.” But implying that there were 1,800 new cases in a single day is much scarier.

If some of those “new” cases are as old as they appear, the folks could have recovered by the time they were reported. If you’ll look at DPH’s “Cumulative Cases” graph, you should note there is no huge surge; the cases were spread over so many days that the curve remains linear until it begins flattening out on June 18.

Early ChinCOVID

I’ve thought for months that SARS-CoV-2 was already widespread long before the lockdowns began, making them destructively pointless. And I’ve collected a fair bit of data to support that, including a case in Washington in December. Well, here’s another data point.

Coronavirus was in northern Italy in December, officials reveal after studying wastewater
SARS-Cov-2 RNA (ribonucleic acid) was found in samples collected in Milan and Turin on Dec. 18, 2019, and in Bologna on Jan. 29, 2020.

Detectable levels of RNA in wastewater indicate a lot of infected people, not just one or two. Community transmission was in full swing in Milan by 12/18/2019.

About that Albuquerque shooting

I’m sure you’ve heard about it. Terrible Bad Man shoots innocent protestor.

Then we hear that… Whoa, the crowd was attacking him; pursuing him, and he fired in self defense.

Then the lefties point out that the incident really started when TBM threw a Poor Innocent Woman to the ground. Since he initiated the aggression, he can’t claim self defense after all. And there’s video to prove it!

Not so fast. I wasn’t able to see that video until today, because Twitter kept pulling it down. But today, some tweeted it and as I write it’s still there. And I manged to save a copy just in case it vanishes. Again.

Watch it. What an objective viewer — I have no dog in this fight — will see is that PIW was actually blocking TBM, side-stepping to keep blocking him as he moved away. And then we get to this.

Yep, PIW aggressively leaned back against TBM. Look at her legs and where her center-mass is. She’s pushing against him using her legs. If you didn’t notice that before, go watch the video again. I did, several times, in slow motion.

PIW initiated contact, and aggressively pushed TBM. I’d have to check New Mexico’s current laws — but I won’t because I don’t have a dog in this fight, remember? — but when I lived there, PIW’s action would have been assault. I do know that if this had happened in Georgia, it would be assault under our laws.

TBM tried to avoid PIW. PIW assaulted him. He retaliated by throwing her to the ground (which would have been pretty easy since she’d put herself off-balance. He disengaged. The crowd pursued. More assaults against TBM ensued, followed by hiliarious gunfire.

Unless someone comes up with more video showing Baca initiating force before the PIW throwdown, I’m inclined to call Baca’s action legitimate self defense.

A Conservative Majority

…my ass.

On Monday, the Supreme Clowns in black dresses effectively ruled that transgender “women” really are biological women, by finding their “identity” is valid and protected by discrimination law as “sex.”

That same day, that “conservative majority” band of idiots denied certiorari for every Second Amendment case that was pending. They haven’t heard a single one in nearly a decade.

And today, they ruled that DHS improperly ended the illegal DACA program — implemented by fiat, not by legislation or proper rulemaking under the Administrative Procedures Act –by not following the APA, and by not properly considering the feelz of the DACA illegal aliens.

This Court is so bad, the Babylon Bee can barely keep up with the Court of No Resort (for Constitutionalists). We’re another day closer to hunting season, damn it.

To Hell With Patreon

I have killed my Patreon account. I thank those who were supporting me through that.

Last night, I received an email from Patreon stating that they would be adopting a racially-based system of support for creators, and for hiring. They will be donating tens of thousands of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization. I cannot support that.

All lives of honest people, including blacks, do matter. But the BLM organization is about money, not justice. And what the organization does with the money is quite dubious.

I am not going to indirectly, via Patreon, help pay to convert America into a socialist — and eventually full-on communist — hellhole.
