Masks of the Dead Breath

The mask of ignorance

Robert Zimmerman, Behind the Black –
h/t J.J. Sefton’s Morning Report on A♠

Let us begin with the premise that wearing a mask properly, in the proper situations, will without doubt reduce the chances of someone transmitting COVID-19 from themselves to others.…

In general, the way almost everyone uses their masks is not sanitary, and likely increases the chances they are breathing more pathogens than if they were not wearing a mask at all. And as they do this, they are making themselves oxygen deficient, while rebreathing a lot more carbon dioxide, which at high levels can be poisonous.…

…these mask orders are in general irrational, and involve a whole range of irrational and thoughtless decision-making, by health officials, by governors, and by citizens. If anything, the mask appears to have become not a method for protecting public health but for exhibiting the ignorance of its user.

Even Snopes isn’t buying this one.

Claim

U.S. President Donald Trump’s June 20, 2020, election rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, during the coronavirus pandemic could be connected to two days of 100% positive COVID-19 tests reported in the state more than a week later.

False

As U.S. President Donald Trump faced political fallout from his June 20, 2020, rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, many speculated about the health consequences of the large gathering due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. One such speculation took place on MSNBC’s “All in With Chris Hayes” program, where on June 29, the anchor addressed a spike in COVID-19 cases in the state.

Though Hayes emphasized there was no way to confirm cause and effect, his analysis led to an incorrect theory that the rally resulted in two days of 100% positive COVID-19 tests a week later. In a later segment, Hayes clarified that the data he presented was incomplete. …

 

How Do You Know…When You Aren’t Really Thinking?

198 Progressive thought process:

I learned a thing from my very smart professor who wrote a book on the thing. I don’t understand it, but the prof is very smart, therefore I believe it.

Now I am telling you the thing. You understand that I am very smart and educated, and i just gave you the bonafides of my learning, therefore you must now believe the thing and tell others.

“I don’t believe the thing based on XYZ”

I just told you how smart my professor is, you know how smart I am, you must believe the thing!

“No, i have a different opinion”

The only reason you won’t believe the thing is either because you are too stupid to understand how smart my professor and I are, or you are a dangerous person acting out of racism and bigotry. Either way you must be silenced before you spread your ideas to others.

Just wander over to a bunch of teenagers and offer $50 for a halfway decent explanation of our government, or even just the electoral college. Odds are that you will keep your money.

32 Offer that fifty bucks to any of these college kids if they can explain the “three-fifths clause”. In my experience, most libs cannot, at all, other than thinking it signified how much blacks were “worth” as humans or something. We’re surrounded by idiots.

They get really angry and huffy when you explain it too no matter how nice you are about it or how careful you are. They are more angry that you showed them you are wrong than that someone taught them crap.

No truer wurdz has ever been spake.

Kollidge kidz can’t make correct change or even fix a flat tire. Proof, as if we needed any more, that if you dumb down a populace, they can be made to believe any stoopid thing they’re told to believe.

78 They get really angry and huffy when you explain it too no matter how nice you are about it or how careful you are. They are more angry that you showed them you are wrong than that someone taught them crap. They’ve been indoctrinated to be angry emotional idiots with sky-high self-esteem. They haven’t been given knowledge, they’ve been given jargon which they repeat by rote and believe they’re ‘thinking.’

Media Lies About Trump Mount Rushmore Speech An Ugly Preview Of What’s To Come

Tristan Justice, The Federalist, July 8, 2020

Legacy media became predictably hysterical after President Donald Trump’s speech Friday defending American exceptionalism at one of the nation’s most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore.

“We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump proclaimed from the South Dakota Black Hills. “We are proud of the face that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and we understand that these values have dramatically advanced the cause of peace and justice throughout the world.”

The media translation of this could come straight out of an article from the satire website Babylon Bee. Trump says America is good, media leaps to Orange Man Bad.

“President Trump delivered a dark and divisive speech at Mount Rushmore, leaning into the culture wars and barely mentioning the pandemic,” blasted The New York Times just moments following the Independence Day address.…

If one hadn’t been convinced already, the media infected with a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome have now shown they’ll lie about anything. After spending nearly half a decade attempting to legitimize fanatical conspiracies about Russia in a brazen attempt to undermine Trump’s presidency,the media’s alleged truth-tellers have misled the public on virutally every issue since Trump took office.…

While gathering to worship God, celebrate the country, and vote are deemed selfish attacks on our neighbors, gatherings to protest Christianity, the country, the police, the Republican president, and capitalism are viciously defended.

China’s EMP Weapons

China develops weapons to fry US electric grid, eyes high-tech ‘Pearl Harbor’ attack
by Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, June 18, 2020, 08:35 AM
h/t All Hail Eris on A♠

With the help of stolen U.S. technology, China has developed at least three types of high-tech weapons to attack the electric grid and key technologies in a “surprise Pearl Harbor” assault that could send America into a deadly blackout, according to a new analysis.

According to the report from the independent EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security, China has built a network of satellites, high-speed missiles, and “super-electromagnetic pulse” weapons that could melt down the U.S. electric network, fry critical communications, and stifle aircraft carrier groups.

According to the report, written by the task force’s executive director, Peter Pry, long an expert on EMP warfare, China developed the weapons as part of its “Total Information Warfare” that includes hacking raids on computers.

What’s more, despite China’s promises to attack only after being attacked, Pry revealed new data to show that the communist nation is lying and eager to shoot first with “high-altitude electromagnetic pulse,” or HEMP, weapons launched from satellites, ships, and land.…
