AAAAAAHHHHH fresh kitty litter!

Here is a nice, fresh, smelly one!
The Biden W.H. will let anyone in! Get a good whiff of this.....
https://www.foxnews.com/media/imposter-white-house-reporter-infiltrates-jen-psaki-press-briefings-report
"An online gamer successfully pretended to be a White House reporter and even managed to pose questions to President Biden's press secretary, according to a new report.

A person who created an online profile as "Kacey 'Lego' Montagu" and presented herself as a correspondent for the fictitious "White House News" duped legitimate members of the White House press corps into asking her questions at briefings at least four times, according to a report from Politico. "

Looks like the ol' "scooper" has been one upped.

This one is better than getting a LIB rag to by your story.

Quotes

Insight: “We are so concerned to flatter the majority that we lose sight of how very often it is necessary, in order to preserve freedom for the minority, let alone for the individual, to face that majority down.” —William F. Buckley, Jr. (1925-2008)

Upright: “The woke revolution is not a grassroots movement. It is powered by a well-connected and guilt-ridden elite. Yet the religion of wokeness assumes that these high priests deserve exemptions. Their wealth, credentials, contacts and power ensure none are ever subject to the consequences of their own sermons. … Self-righteous elites rant about carbon footprints, needless border security, defunding the police, gun control and charter schools. But they rarely forgo their private jets, third and fourth homes, estate walls, armed security guards and prep schools. Apparently, the more you rant about ‘privilege,’ the less you need to worry about your own. Wokeness is an insurance policy. The louder the damnation of American culture, the more likely a career will be saved or enhanced. … Wokeness is not really about fairness for minorities, the oppressed and the poor, past or present. It is mostly a self-confessional cult of anointed bullies, and hypocrites of all races and genders, who seek to flex, and increase, their own privilege and power. Period.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Observations: “Wokeness is sort of the product of political correctness, and I don’t even understand how people who think logically can not see through what’s being done to divide us. We can’t be destroyed by Russia or China or North Korea or Iran or anyplace. We can only be destroyed by ourselves. And there are those who know that and therefore they plant the seeds of dissension.” —former HUD Secretary Ben Carson

Political futures: “It’s really unacceptable that Biden is so obsessed with Trump reversals that he’ll literally put the American public, and these [migrant] kids, at risk the way he is. And then he gives Kamala Harris — apparently, she’s the one in charge. This is the same person who encouraged 7,000 migrants to come to America. She referred to ICE as the KKK. She’s now in charge of this. She’s been missing in action, and God help us if she ever becomes president, because if this is how she handles a crisis, I mean, I just can’t imagine how she would run our country.” —former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley

For the record: “Major League Baseball can’t become a weapon in the culture wars, a hostage for one political party or ideology. It can’t be only for the rich or the poor, nor can it only be for one race, as it was until 1947. Baseball must always stand above politics and its dark elements of corruption, greed and sordid selfishness. It can’t go wrong by standing for national greatness. The situation calls to mind the 2006 Duke lacrosse case, when many erred — like Mr. Manfred has here — by leaping to a conclusion based on assumptions rather than carefully considered facts.” —former MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent

Read my lips: “I have said it before and will say it again to remove any shred of doubt: There is no circumstance in which I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster. The time has come to end these political games, and to usher a new era of bipartisanship where we find common ground on the major policy debates facing our nation.” —Senator Joe Manchin

And last… “More media outrage over the Covington kid smiling or not smiling than the two teenage girls who killed a man during a carjacking.” —Erielle Davidson

LIB lie... That's what they do.
Gotta love the spin when busted.
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/buttigieg-exaggerated-job-numbers-biden-spending-plan-chris-wallace

"Wallace noted that Buttigieg and other Biden administration officials overstated the number of jobs that would be created by Biden's "American Jobs Plan" last Sunday and then asked, "Why mislead people?"

"You're right. I should have been more precise," Buttigieg said.

Buttigieg then attempted to spin the projected number of jobs created by saying that there would be over 2 million more jobs created with the "infrastructure" plan than if there wasn't a plan.

Wallace said there was a huge difference between 2 million jobs created and 19 million jobs, prompting Buttigieg to say it's "very important" for Americans to know 2.7 million jobs will be created. He then asked Buttigieg whether he agrees that he and other Biden admistration officials exaggerated the "jobs impact.""

But of course.
Amazon blocks any unfavorable reviews of Hunter Biden’s book.

CBS owns the publisher of Biden’s book, thus we see CBS giving the promotion and interviews of Hunter Biden on its schedule last week. CBS also owns 60 Minutes, the discredited and outright lying program which is still being lampooned and fact checked for it’s despicable hit on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Of course, to the Lamestream media and other Lefty news outlets Gov. DeSantis is the most vile and demonized governor in America because he is doing it right, proving the Biden Administration and Governor Newsome, Wicked Gretchen of Michigan, and beloved Cuomo dead ass wrong.....as well as a dearth of TV and media brainless talking heads spouting their dead ass wrong lies and propaganda. I know, it’s nothing new and is to be expected considering the source.

In the manufacturing sector, Texas and Florida have recovered and surpassed pre-COVID numbers. CA ain’t doing too bad with its manufacturing base and employment up to a whopping 60% of its pre-COVID numbers. There are twenty miles of cargo ships lined up outside LA waiting to offload it’s cargo. Sure, there are gadgets and consumer widgets on the freight liners, but the critical cargo lined up for months off shore is raw materials needed for manufactures and business to business materials. Business to business strategic metals and raw materials are sitting out there in the deep blue sea. 20 miles of cargo ships lined up waiting is nearly as long as Catalina Island is off the ports. Wasn’t there a song about ‘26 miles out in the deep blue sea, sunny Catalina.Island...’.

Texas and Florida do not have the backlog that NY and CA have. Wonder why that is? Seems to me (generally), open ‘er up or lock er down, the is no difference in % of Covid cases or deaths. The only difference IS the governors’ decisions and handling of the pandemic in their neck of the woods. And that is a big big difference.

Buck Sexton pointed out around March 13 that now that lock downs are being eased and talk about opening up schools again, the Lamestream media and Lefties started freaking out. They really don’t want lock downs to be lifted, no matter what they say. Scares the shit out of control freaks. Lock downs lifted? Holy Guano, what are we doing to do now? Freak out time.

Anyway, in parting, what have we learned, if anything.

TODAY IN COVID RESPONSE FIASCO
Has there ever been a time when the world’s “elites” have been either so incompetent, or so corrupt, as at present? One silver lining of the covid epidemic is the light it has shed on the quality of leadership in government, public health and media. The fiasco of leadership on covid is a daily phenomenon; here are a few current instances.

Looks like blm learned well from shakedown sharpton and the jessee jackson rainbow rip off coalition for babies mammas -

As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.

The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370 square-foot property features "soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows" with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.

Some fellow activists were taken aback by the real estate revelations.

Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, called for "an independent investigation" to find out how the global network spends its money.

I get the Netherlands, Holland, and Denmark all confused. With that aside, the article says Denmark.

‘Denmark to revoke Syrian refugees' residence permits in toughest crackdown in Europe’

“Denmark has been open and honest from day one," Tesfaye told AFP. "We have made it clear to the Syrian refugees that their residence permit is temporary and that the permit can be revoked if the need for protection ceases to exist."

And finally, polls, polls, polls!

‘Byron York's Daily Memo: Democratic pollsters acknowledge: We darn near lost’

“The biggest problem was the presidential race. "Thanks to the quirks of the Electoral College, the difference between a new administration and four more years of Donald Trump was merely 43,000 votes cast across Wisconsin, Georgia, and Arizona," the pollsters write. "Every one of us thought Democrats would have a better Election Day than they did."

Remember, all these pollsters are Democrats, lol.

Obama sticks his foot up his own arse once again.
"The fact that this could happen even as the city of Minneapolis is going through the heart-wrenching murder of George Floyd indicates not just how important it is to conduct a full and transparent investigation, but also just how badly we need to reimagine policing and public safety in this country."
Murder?
Isn't that something to be determined by a fair and impartial trial?
'Reimagine' policing? You mean if an American citizen is of African descent and there's a warrant out for his arrest and he doesn't 'feel' like being arrested the police are to just shrug and wish him a nice day? His shooting appears to be a tragic human error. He didn't deserve to be shot, but the shooting was brought about by his resisting arrest.
So - what, exactly, do we 'reimagine' here? You want police to be 100% perfect all the time and never make errors? Good luck at the human resource dept at the police station.
And:
"Michelle and I grieve alongside the Wright family for their loss. We empathize with the pain that Black mothers, fathers, and children are feeling after yet another senseless tragedy," he said.
So what about the dozens of black children shot dead in the cross-fire of black punks in Chicago?
Seems it's not the victim, but the shooter that counts for political points, here.
How touching.

It's from the perspective of my personal opinion, neither propoganda or journalism. The reality is that both Obama and Biden inherited from the previous Republican administrations terrible economies. That much is fact. The reasons for that are up for fair discussion.

Bill Tozer

Guess this goes here. Foreign policy.

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD?
When we look out on the world scene and how the Biden Administration is positioning itself, everyone should keep in mind the summary statement of former Defense Secretary and CIA director Robert Gates (no one’s idea of a partisan firebrand, as he’s been serving presidents of both parties since the Carter Administration): Joe Biden, Gates said, “has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

Why would Biden change now?

Candace Owens On BLM Founder: If ‘White People Are So Bad, Why Doesn’t She Want To Live Amongst Black People?’

Owens also mockingly commended Khan-Cullors for staying true to her “communist” values. “She has my respect because she’s unapologetic in her approach. She’s telling you what she is. She’s a Marxist. So Marxists steal money from other people and they enrich themselves until the people that they stole from are poor. And so she has stolen money from other people on the pretext of a lie that is Black Lives Matter.”

“I mean, you have to kind of appreciate the honesty; she’s not hiding by any means, you know. … She’s a communist through and through, and she’s been unbelievably unapologetic in her approach,” Owens added.

Yes,, CNN(Commie Network News) is guilty of subversion.
https://dailycaller.com/2021/04/13/project-veritas-video-can-technical-director-donald-trump-propaganda/
"An individual Project Veritas alleges to be CNN technical director Charlie Chester is seen in the video discussing the network’s “propaganda” story lines regarding Trump’s health. Chester also appeared to describe how CNN framed President Joe Biden “as a young geriatric,” adding that he believes the network helped the president “through this term.”

“We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what – I think that’s propaganda, you know?” Chester is seen saying according to Project Veritas. “Trump was, I don’t know, like his hand was shaking or whatever I think. We brought in like, so many medical people to like all tell a story that, like, it was all speculation – that he was like neurologically damaged, that he was losing it. He’s unfit to, you know, whatever. We were … creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about, you know?”

“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was. Right?” he added in another portion of the video."

And just who was parroting this lie?
Paul Emery. Remember Emery? how many times did you play clinical neurologist? "Trump is mentally unfit for office" and all that crap.
NOW we know where you got it.


George Rebane

PaulE 1137am - Yes, the causes for the economies bequeathed to Obama and Biden are topics of their own. But what those two did to the economies with their policies of record are now matters of fact. Obama took an economy that demonstrated its readiness for a robust bounce to recovery, and spent eight years stifling growth at an historically low pace, which magically showed its strength when Trump et al were elected. And that economy grew so strong in three years that it has been able to take a year-long Democrat stifled pandemic and still show unimaginable recovery once the lockdowns were relaxed. Now we are seeing how Team Biden will replicate Obama with his monopoly government spraying out a constant stream of unnecessary and misdirected spending, massive new regulations, and historical tax increases. Not a pretty portent.

@132pm - Yes indeed, Nevada County is turning blue by the day. And all should be concerned that as a matter of record, from where leftwingers leave the shitholes they have created, they create new ones wherever they land - SF values and all that.

The cancel culture list is growing so exponentially that it is nigh impossible to keep up. I am tempted to just quit following as it is now sooooo very commonplace.

‘Canceled at Georgetown’
The law school dean sacrifices university policy and basic fairness to mob justice

“Treanor is the latest in a long line of American university administrators who has knuckled under to the pressures of the cancel culture mob. All it would have taken was for the dean to tell the Twitter mob, in effect: “Hold on a moment, let me speak with this woman first to understand what’s in her heart before I decide whether to act on your impulse to destroy her professional life.””

https://www.city-journal.org/georgetown-law-school-dean-caves-to-social-justice-activists

The irony is troublesome. A Law School dean teaching young lawyers to be via by his example that due process and the presumption of innocence is of no concern. It certainty is of no concern to the law school ‘community’.


Paul Emery

Well George it Trump was such a great President, as you imply, then why did he lose the Presidency, the House and Senate all in one term. That's the first time since before Teddy Roosevelt that has happened.

Sports columnist Jason Whitlock said Monday he would not comply with Twitter's demand to remove a tweet criticizing a Black Lives Matter co-founder's purchase of an expensive home after the social media giant locked Whitlock out of his account.

Whitlock, who is Black, took a dig at Patrisse Cullors on Friday after she reportedly bought a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, a ritzy Los Angeles-area enclave where only 1.4% of residents are Black.

"She’s with her people!" Whitlock wrote sarcastically, with a link to a story about Cullors' purchase from celebrity blog site Dirt.com. Despite the story not including an address and despite the fact that other outlets had reported on Cullors' new home -- including The Grio and New York Post -- Whitlock was told Friday he had violated Twitter's rules against publishing private information.

CANNABIS EQUITY, THE NEXT FRONTIER IN WOKENESS
A friend from California sent me a document from the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development. It’s called “Cannabis Equity Grants Programs For Local Jurisdictions.”

As I read the document, California’s program will provide $2 million to help localities establish a “cannabis equity” program. An additional $13 million will be used to help “equity applicants” set up and operate cannabis businesses. “Equity applicants” include (and seem to be limited to) people who have been convicted of using and/or selling cannabis.

Far out!

IT’S OFFICIAL: DEMS WANT TAX CUT FOR THE RICH
If you need proof that Democrats are really on the side of the plutocracy, look no further than New York’s Democratic House members, who today wrote to Speaker Pelosi threatening to vote against any of (P)resident Biden’s tax increase proposals unless the bill includes full repeal of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction limitations that were part of Trump’s 2017 tax reform. The SALT limitation was the single most “progressive” tax increase on the rich in years, but chiefly in high tax states like California, Illinois, New York, and New Jersey.”

Yes, the lady most recently featured crocheting on a look behind the scenes news segment (one VP Kamala Harris) is the tie breaker, for sure. But, the Republicans did not lose the Senate under Trump.....just to be accurate and waste more time and energy talking to the fence post with what looks like a ponytail nailed on the back of it. Under Trump, the Republicans lost the House and Senate and Presidency all in one term!! Lost the Senate? Ok, fine.

I have noticed (is it just me?) that the Dems and their popinjays have been quite silent on how the Repubs and Dems did in our Statehouses in 2020. Let’s just say that it was opposite of what one would expect when the people kicked the House, Senate, and Oval Office out of power. The Dems found no blue wave but instead a rather strong cross current. Those disgusting despicable deplorables did rather well, thank you very much. But, let’s not emphasize that. Not important.

If I recall correctly, the Obama years saw a loss of 1,200 state and local elected jurisdictions, from governors to statehouses to county districts to city councils. Maybe that 1,200 flipped seats (got creamed) includes Federal office holders, so it may be under 1,200 but over 900. Anyway......

If I recall correctly, the shocking results of the 2016 election was predicated on the groundswell of what was happening at the local and state levels since 2010, 2012, 2014...... And so here we are.

George Rebane

PaulE, in your perennial reporting of how poorly Trump and the Senate Repubs did in 2020, you might want to acknowledge some balance by recognizing the GOP's fortunes on a national scale as reported in Mr Tozer's 1114am. That form of clarity would go a long way to burnish your highly partisan record, and perhaps even your credentials.

CIA shocker: Obama fundraiser says he was U.S. intel asset, alleges spy agency 'abuses'

“The specter of a major political donor — now convicted of a federal felony — secretly working for the CIA seems ripped from a Hollywood script. The fact that the CIA's former top spy lawyer joined his legal team only added to the movie-like storyline.

But the IG complaints raise more serious issues, including the possibility that American political figures, U.S. citizens and a news organization may have been used wittingly or unwittingly for espionage operations.

According to multiple sources familiar with the complaints, Eatinger alleged to the inspector general that Zuberi:

was instructed at times by U.S. intelligence to glean information from or try to achieve certain tasks with select members of Congress, including one prominent Republican U.S. senator. The CIA is not supposed to target, spy on or influence members of Congress.

was involved in a clandestine operation that used an American journalism organization to carry out countermeasures and influence operations in a foreign country. The CIA is not supposed to use journalism organizations or journalists for operational cover.
was asked by a senior CIA officer to make a private investment in an American drone company even as Zuberi was under criminal investigation by the Justice Department.
observed what he believed was a U.S. intelligence asset become involved in Zuberi's lobbying project in Sri Lanka, a project that resulted in criminal charges against Zuberi involving the Foreign Agent Registration Act.
was asked by U.S. intelligence to allow a scrub team to delete emails, documents and other evidence of his intelligence work from his computer only later to be accused by the U.S. Justice Department of obstructing justice with the deletion.”

It was close in the Senate and House but the Repubs lost control of both-the House two years ago. Speaking of elections none were as close as Bush-Gore.

In addition to talking about the future of the Republican Party and our plan to SAVE AMERICA, he asked why you STILL hadn’t stepped up to protect his critical America First Agenda.

I want President Trump to see that YOU gave $25 or more to show your dedicated support.

You’ve always been one of his TOP supporters, which is why I’m going to give you ONE MORE CHANCE. I’ve unlocked a DOUBLE-MATCH on your next donation if you step up in the NEXT HOUR.

Biden’s policies have gotten him 64 percent disapproval among independents, and 55 percent disapproval among Latinos, according to a Quinnipiac poll of 1,237 adults, conducted April 8-12."

"In August 2020, then-candidate Joe Biden told reporters he would end all lawsuits seeking control of land along the Mexican border to be used to build border walls, the legal blog reported.

“End it,” Biden said in an interview with NPR’s Lula Garcia-Navarro. “End it. End. End. Stop. Done. Over. Not gonna do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not gonna confiscate the land.”

The Biden Department of Justice took over the lawsuit in January 2021."

“We took him at his word,” family member Reynaldo Anzaldua Cavazos told The Washington Post. “He is not keeping that word.”

‘SILENCED! Twitter Suspends Project Veritas Founder James O’Keefe Permanently’

“Roughly two months after banning Project Veritas, Twitter has permanently suspended the investigative outlet’s founder James O’Keefe.

O’Keefe’s ban came after Project Veritas released undercover video of a CNN staffer bragging about helping Joe Biden win the presidency. “Look what we did, we got Trump out. I am 100 percent going to say it, and I 100 percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,” Project Veritas caught CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester saying.

Chester even admitted that CNN’s anti-Trump coverage amounted to nothing less than propaganda.

In a scene from the undercover video, Chester is heard talking about how CNN “didn’t know anything” about Trump’s health but frequently reported the former president was “neurologically damaged” anyway:

“Yeah, I mean like Trump we did it, like when Trump was-- I don’t know-- like his hand was shaking? Or whatever I think. We brought in so many medical people to all tell a story that like, it was all speculation, that he was, like, neurologically damaged, that he was losing it. He was unfit to, you know, whatever. We were--we were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what--I think that’s propaganda, you know?””

Quotes

Insight: “Freedom of religion means the right of the individual to choose and to adhere to whichever religious beliefs he may prefer, to join with others in religious associations to express these beliefs, and to incur no civil disabilities because of his choice.” —Joseph L. Blau (1909-1986)

Political futures: “The explosion of migrants at the southern border and the expansion of ‘asylum’ migration are just two of many tools designed to bring in millions of new ‘voters,’ whose identity won’t be verifiable under the strictures imposed by H.R. 1. It isn’t just about ‘turning Texas blue’ or solidifying the increasing ‘blueness’ of Arizona. And California is already blue. So Democrats are now proposing to ship migrants all over the country, including into traditionally ‘red’ states, where the presence of a few thousand here or there will undoubtedly flip precincts in key counties of battleground states. If H.R. 1 passes, there won’t be a damn thing states can do about it.” —Laura Hollis

The bottom line: “The composition of Congress, the Electoral College and the Supreme Court; the presidential veto and congressional veto-override powers; and other limits on power were designed by the founders to produce conflict, stalemates, sober reflection and compromise. They were placed into our political system to ensure that the United States would never descend into the raw majoritarianism that progressives are calling for and Democrats seem hell-bent on achieving. Like all humans throughout history who were drunk with power, Democrats are planting the seeds of their own failures and — more ominously — the collapse of the country.” —Laura Hollis

Friendly fire: “I believe that in the first few weeks of the Biden administration, messages were confusing. They were compassionate messages that were understood by people in our country, especially the coyotes, to tell families, ‘We’ll take the children.’ And children can go, and once children are there, they will call their parents.” — Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei

For the record: “When Mr. Biden first came to Washington during the previous mini-Ice Age, federal debt was about $450 billion — a quaint little figure when you think about it these days. In the 48 years since Mr. Biden arrived on the banks of the Potomac, federal debt has exploded. Today, it stands at $28 trillion — a figure that is literally beyond comprehension. … Mr. Biden hasn’t been back in the White House three months yet as president and already he has blown through another $2 trillion that we don’t have. … And now comes Mr. Biden with yet another proposal to spend another $2.3 trillion of money we don’t have. This one is for ‘infrastructure,’ a word that Democrats have already begun torturing in order to include all their crazy pet projects.” —Charles Hurt

Re: The Left: “From a communications standpoint, I cannot for the life of me understand the decision to … leave [Afghanistan] on 9/11 and handing a propaganda tool to the Taliban.” —Fox News’s Dana Perino

No kidding: “It’s disturbing how many of the people in charge loathe the country they are supposed to represent.” —Lisa Boothe

Non compos mentis: “I don’t look at this as a liberty thing.” —Dr. Anthony Fauci on COVID restrictions (“That’s obvious.” —Congressman Jim Jordan)

Braying jenny: “I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who last month postured, “[January 6] was a very difficult moment for us in the Capitol and those who care about our democracy.”

I’ve made a huge mistake… “We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together to listen, respectfully share concerns and collaborate on a path forward. We remain open to productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views. It’s time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing — free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy.” —Coca-Cola now feigning “common ground” only because conservatives are boycotting its products

Race bait I: “I have seen for myself how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.” —Linda Thomas-Greenfield, U.S. Ambassador to the UN

Race bait II: “How could a trained officer make a mistake shooting an unarmed man with a gun instead of a taser? Hard to believe.” —Congresswoman Maxine Waters

Village idiot: “Why would any person of color ever comply with a police officer when there is a 50/50 shot of getting ‘accidentally’ shot?” —Chelsea Handler

Dumb and dumber: “I had the opportunity to go talk to these peaceful protesters. … Our city is calm now, thank you all who came out to peacefully protest then went home.” —Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott with a photo of himself in a Kevlar riot helmet

And last… “Dear cancel culture, Aim higher, go for the IRS.” —Kevin Sorbo

Another hangover from the Trump legacy:

"Oklahoma stuck with over a million hydroxychloroquine doses after Trump-hyped drug proved to be a bust:

Last year, former President Donald Trump regularly hyped up hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug that studies have repeatedly shown to be ineffective at treating the novel coronavirus.

Following the president's lead, many Republican governors invested big in the drug, and are now stuck with unused doses after the Food and Drug Administration revoked its emergency use authorization for treating COVID patients.

One such state was Oklahoma -- and as Oklahoma Watch reports, the state has an estimated 1.2 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sitting in a warehouse in an undisclosed location.

George Rebane

PaulE 1155am - HCQ was a "bust" in America only because of the Dems and lamestream dunning the drug as part of their destroy Trump campaign. Its regular use as a Covid prophylactic worldwide (e.g. India and Africa) has saved hundreds of thousands of lives, which it and Ivermectin could also have done in the US. You are an active protagonist here for a very evil political party.

hcq with az and zinc, administered early, is what was being touted by the french virologist didier whatsisname and others. no number of large dose hcq studies of late stage patients will refute this.

when i was fighting the infection in late December and early January, my request for hcq ignored by my md I had to make do with zinc. it might have helped. i didn't die.

Thanks for the links. First of all I could not access the whole article about India because I wasn't a subscriber but what I did see referred to Ivermectin is India’s new hydroxychloroquine. So that link is irrelevant to the questions I rose about Oklahoma. My bigger question is why didn't they use what they had?

I found nothing in your links of the one from Barry that indicated it had saved "hundreds of thousands of lives" as you claim.

Again, why didn't Oklahoma use what it had and how much did it cost?
