Massive Food Inflation/Shortages Coming

We here at the blog have warned you; lockdowns, extra $300 a week benefits, vax vs anti-vax, and general fear would eventually lead to issues in the overall economy.  You likely thought we were tin foil hat wearing wackos.  Well, include Sysco as a wacko as well, or maybe they are credible?

Sysco is the largest food distributor in North America. You may recognize their trucks delivering to restaurants.  Sysco provides food supplies to restaurants, jails, schools, and most concert venues or event halls.  Chances are if you go out or “grab a bite” somewhere you likely are eating something from a Sysco truck.  Well Sysco reported earnings earlier this week and, on the call, gave these dire warnings and I quote.

Sysco, North America’s largest wholesale food distributor, which is turning away customers in some areas where demand is exceeding capacity.

U.S. Food Suppliers Are Having Trouble Keeping Shelves Stocked

“There are certain areas across the country that are more challenged by the labor shortage and our volume of orders is regularly exceeding our capacity,” Sysco Chief Executive Officer Kevin Hourican said in a letter to clients earlier this month. “This has, unfortunately, led to service disruptions for some of our customers.”

Hourican’s troubling observations were confirmed by an analysis from DecaData, which tracks retailer transactions with shoppers and manufacturers; it showed that retailers are bumping up against manufacturer capacity as they stockpile ahead of the holiday season. In July, the incidence of suppliers limiting or putting a cap on orders from customers was more than double what it was in January, its data show.

Largest US Food Distributor Having Trouble Keeping Shelves Stocked; Price Shock Imminent

I know what you are thinking, its one supplier, crying wolf, well united Natural Foods is another large distributor, here is what they said.

Another major distributor, United Natural Foods is having trouble getting food to stores on time. The company blamed not just labor shortages, but also delays in the procurement of some imported goods like cheese, coconut water and spices, as causing the problems.

“We anticipate additional supplier challenges in the short term with gradual improvement through the fall and winter,” a United Natural Foods representative said. The company’s top priority is to support customers “by working diligently to recover and bring their shelves back to normal inventory levels as quickly as possible.”

U.S. Food Suppliers Are Having Trouble Keeping Shelves Stocked

Look at how desperate these corporations are to hire workers.

U.S. companies across industries are reporting a dearth of workers amid sweetened unemployment benefits, stimulus payments and a pandemic that has reduced the appeal of in-person employment. Houston-based Sysco is aggressively hiring warehouse workers and truck drivers and offering referral and sign-on bonuses along with retention money for current staff.

The entire food sector is seeing “massive labor shortages,” Benjamin Walker, senior vice president of sales, marketing and merchandising at Baldor Specialty Foods told Bloomberg. “Service levels are the lowest I’ve seen in my 16-year career, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going away anytime soon.” Finding truck drivers is “next to impossible,” he said, while freight costs are rising daily. The company’s orders are arriving late and consequently facing delays in being sent to customers. On the outbound side, on-time deliveries are still above 50% but have fallen from the usual rate of more than 90%.

“We all thought it would be over by now. It’s just one thing after another,” he said.

“This is going to be the norm for a while.”

Folks get ready. In addition to menu shortages, inflation is coming to restaurants in a very big way soon. For the elite, that means they may not have a steak on the menu, for the serfs, the chicken dish you ordered; they may be out of it.  The price increases hit the corporations first as they have to buy from distributors, but they are coming to a grocer near you, mark my words.  You can already see it in the “ads” each week, you may notice sales prices don’t seem as great anymore.  You may have also heard about water and toilet paper shortages or quotas placed on how many you can buy.  This is not a test or a joke people, we are facing inflation like never before seen in a millennial’s lifetime.  A burger (2 patties) no cheese, or bacon at Five Guys runs almost $10, that does not include fries and a coke.  That price would be laughable a year or two ago, it could be a sale price in another year.

Truth be told, the labor shortage is due to a variety of things, yes, the $300 a week is a thing still and will continue to be.  Also, most truckers have worked non-stop with mandatory overtime since this started, they are burned out, and want/need a family life balance.  As far as the slaughterhouses/production lines for veggies etc., those workers feel the same way, and frankly the wages are not typically conducive to long term employment at one place.

In addition, the shortage of labor has been brewing for years, and our education system is to blame.  I will expand on this in another blog but for years of my childhood anything other than a management desk job with stock options and 10% annual salary increases was a loser job.  Actually 2 former teachers of mine impressed that on me; work at a grocery store…loser, construction…loser, truck driver…loser.  Well, we know are desperate for these positions so much so hiring bonuses are being dangled, they still cannot hire folks.  The reason is truck driving is a skill you need a separate license for, your regular Class C license isn’t what you need.  Getting a class A license takes time, and a behind the wheel test, and lots of training; the acquisition cost to a company is very high.  This is not going to be a short-term fix.

A corporation as big as Sysco unable to deliver foods to some customers; and in some area’s not taking new customers at all.  A recipe for massive disaster.  Again, I’m not citing high prices yet, its scarce availability.

New York Flattens the Perv

Well, it took about 18 months, but New York finally flattened something. Nope, not Covid, but their governor Andrew Cuomo.  Cuomo—once believed to be a top 2024 presidential frontrunner—resigned in disgrace after the floodgates were finally opened about his repeated sexual assaults and harassment. Please don’t confuse the “Luv Gov” with his weightlifter, health nut, Trump hating brother, Chris who doubles at Andrew’s PR guy on CNN.  Andrew may wish to take advice from his brother Chris, since it appears the two are father son, more than brothers…. just saying, but now on to the story.

Chris Cuomo

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo was accused back in December of last year of sexual harassment by multiple women.  The New York State Assembly started impeachment proceedings in March…. once they found out they weren’t impeaching Trump or seeking his tax returns, they basically folded up and quit the investigation.  At the end of February New York AG (Attorney General) Letitia James announced her own investigation into Cuomo.  The results and report finally came out on August 10th.  Trump would have been impeached about 50 times over in the same amount of time.  Justice Kavanaugh ironically was crucified, in less time, with a fraction of the charges, and no evidence at all we remind you.

2021-08-03_nyag_-_investigative_report

PDF above is complete New York A.G. Report on Cuomo.

In the meantime, prior to the report from AG James coming out, the entire congressional delegation of New York (it’s pretty big) called on him to resign, both senators, and NYC Mayor and fellow scum bag Bill DeBlasio.  It was a rare showing of bipartisanship.  Cuomo ignored it, and so did his brother on CNN Chris.  Funny because Chris fawned all over his brother during his mishandling of Covid in nursing homes, more on this later.

Andrew “Luv Gov” Cuomo

I was not going to publish the names of the victims, but BLM always says “say their names” so here goes, names and actions of Cuomo:

Charlotte Bennett

In late February 2021, Charlotte Bennett, an executive assistant and health policy advisor to Cuomo, accused him of sexual harassment, which included questions about her sex life. In a March 5 video interview with CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell, Bennett said that during a one-on-one meeting in the governor’s office on June 5, 2020, Cuomo implied “that I was old enough for him and he was lonely.” Bennett went on to claim that Cuomo’s office director took the state’s mandatory sexual harassment training for him, “I was there. I heard [the office director] say, ‘I can’t believe I’m doing this for you’ and making a joke about the fact that she was completing the training for him. And then I heard her at the end ask him to sign the certificate.”

Anna Ruch

In early March 2021, a third person, Anna Ruch, a member of the Obama administration (who later served on Joe Biden’s presidential campaign), said that when they were speaking at a wedding reception Cuomo put a hand on her back, that she removed it, and that he then placed his hands on her face cheeks and asked if he could kiss her. A friend photographed Cuomo touching her face.

Ana Liss

On March 6, 2021, Ana Liss, a policy and operations aide to Cuomo from 2013 to 2015, became the third former aide to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment. Liss said Cuomo called her “sweetheart,” touched her on her lower back while they were at a reception, and also once kissed her hand after she stood up from her desk.

Karen Hinton

Also on March 6, Karen Hinton, a former press aide for Cuomo when he served as the US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, said that in 2000, Cuomo had, while meeting with her in a California hotel room, hugged her in an “inappropriate” and “unethical” embrace. Hinton has more recently worked for Cuomo rival New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Brittany Commisso

On March 9, 2021, the Times Union of Albany reported an anonymous member of the governor’s Executive Chamber staff had accused Cuomo of inappropriate touching. On March 11, the same newspaper reported she said Cuomo called her to his mansion, reached under her blouse, and fondled her. Cuomo denied the allegation.

On April 7, 2021, an unnamed executive assistant to Cuomo alleged that she had been summoned to the governor’s mansion in November 2020 to help Cuomo with a problem with his iPhone. After reaching him, Cuomo allegedly rose from his desk and began groping her. After the aide told him his behavior would get him in trouble, Cuomo then shut the door and said “I don’t care.” He returned and groped one of her breasts under her bra by reaching under her blouse. She then left following the groping. A month later she claimed that Cuomo told her to cover-up what had occurred. Her identity was revealed on August 8, 2021 as Brittany Commisso.

Kaitlin (last name not reported as Jenner)

On March 12, Kaitlin (last name unreported), who formerly worked for the governor’s office, alleged that Cuomo had made her feel uncomfortable in various situations, with his comments, questions, requests, and invasions of her personal space. She did not allege inappropriate touching or explicit sexual propositions.

Jessica Bakeman

Jessica Bakeman, a former member of the Capitol press corps who worked for Politico New York, wrote about the atmosphere for women in Albany, New York. On March 12, for the New York magazine website, she wrote that Cuomo had touched her on her arms, shoulders, the small of her back, and waist in 2012, and put his arm around her back and his hand on her waist posing for a picture at a holiday party in 2014 (she wrote that “For years, I would relive that moment at the holiday party”), and made multiple “humiliating” comments during her time covering him. She wrote of the incident in 2014: “Keeping his grip on me as I practically squirmed to get away from him, the governor turned my body to face a different direction for yet another picture. He never let go of my hand.”

Valerie Bauman

On March 18, Valerie Bauman, a reporter for Bloomberg, said in a tweet that during Cuomo’s tenure as New York Attorney General from 2007 to 2010, there was a period of “rampant sexism and sexual harassment.” Cuomo allegedly also made her uncomfortable with unwanted flirting and eye contact. She also claimed that in 2007, upon meeting her, “He took my hand, entered my personal space and looked into my eyes as he announced, ‘Hello, I’m Andrew Cuomo'”.]

Alyssa McGrath

On March 19, Alyssa McGrath, the first current employee to come forward publicly, spoke to The New York Times claiming Cuomo chronically ogled female aides like herself, commenting about their appearances in a way McGrath found inappropriate. McGrath also said that the aide who alleged Cuomo sexually assaulted her in the Executive Mansion “described the encounter in detail to her after it was made public in a report in the Times Union last week.” McGrath claimed that Cuomo told her not to talk with the anonymous aide about the incident.

Sherry Vill

During a March 29, 2021 Zoom news conference with an attorney, Sherry Vill alleged that Cuomo kissed her cheek in front of family members while inspecting her flood-damaged house during a May 28, 2017 visit to her Rochester-area home following a flood. Vill said the kiss was of a “highly sexual manner.” Cuomo also kissed Vill for a second time on the cheek outside her home in a “very aggressive manner.”

Unnamed state trooper

According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo met the state trooper in November 2017 and lobbied to hire her as part of his security detail despite her not satisfying the requirements for the post; she was indeed hired, and Cuomo later inappropriately touched her stomach and back, and also made inappropriate comments.

First unnamed state entity employee

According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo met this unnamed state entity employee at an event in September 2019, where he tapped and grabbed her buttocks while they were posing for photographs.

Second unnamed state entity employee

According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo in March 2020 made inappropriate comments to this unnamed state entity employee, a doctor, who had administered a nasal swab test on Cuomo at a press conference.

Virginia Limmiatis

According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo met energy company employee Virginia Limmiatis at an event in May 2017, where he touched her chest with his fingers.

Governor Cuomo finally stepped down 8/24, but on his way out, he commuted the sentences of 4 murderers, which tells me he will be running for something again soon, likely DA.  I say this because it seems like a pre-requisite to brandish your anti-law enforcement, pro crime policies to make yourself desirable to the Democrat base. (It worked in Los Angeles so why not?) Whilst doing so, he basically said he was innocent, and this was all one big witch hunt.  Isn’t call this a “witch hunt” a sexist way of saying it was the women’s fault not his?

My commentary on this is simple but may come off as male chauvinist.  First off Cuomo is wealthy, son of a former governor (Mario) and has been in politics quite literally his whole life.  He should be able to get with almost any women he wants, it shouldn’t be that hard.  (Didn’t we recently write about a mayor that behaved like this? — editor) Why the harassment?  And by the way I read quite a bit of the AG report, he is a gross sicko of a human.  Telling aides and staffers to “sit on his lap” like he is some shopping mall Santa Clause? 

Andrew Cuomo, the new Bad Santa

This guy literally seemed to make lewd comments or gestures with any member of the opposite sex he came in contact with.  It truly is a stunning fall from grace for a man who could have been governor until he didn’t want it anymore.  Especially with all the favorable press he got during Covid.

Speaking of Covid did anyone see how the new governor, Kathy Hochul, on her first day on the job released the “real number” of deaths in nursing homes under Cuomo’s rule?  Yeah, it’s an additional 12,000.  Yup, now it makes sense … all the refrigerated trucks.  What a low life scumbag this guy was.  Not only did he kill your grandparents/parents he then lied and covered it up. 

Not to be outdone, Joe Biden said Cuomo did a great job as governor. This just begs for comparing trapped Americans in Afghanistan with trapped Americans in New York nursing homes.

Kind of ironic, all his harassment and assaults of women….to think he was replaced with New York’s first women governor.  LOL

Troll

BTW that headline…. kind of Babylon Bee worthy, isn’t it?

Esophageal Cancer: When the Grim Reaper Darkens Your Door Part II

As expected, this installment won’t be any more cheerful than the last. I’m writing this account for two reasons, first so that I have a way to deal with my emotions as I have to deal with what’s going on with my wife, my role as the supportive spouse, and the role as parent of a teenager facing the real prospect that he will lose his mother in the next several months. The second reason is in case somebody else finds this account and may be going thru the same cancer in their family.

I would have written sooner but the doctors found ways of delaying the PET scan and coming up with a treatment plan—a plan that while formulated still lacks a start date.

It’s now been about three weeks since the initial diagnosis. In that time, my wife has developed much more difficulty in chewing food since it keeps getting caught on the tumor. Clearly the tumor continues to grow.

The PET scan results were emailed to us and the doctor simultaneously just a few hours after the procedure. The tumor is in my wife’s esophagus just above the stomach. It is 40 v 27 mm in the axial plane (left and right) and 60 mm in craniocaudal extent (up and down). This translates to 1.57 by 1 by 2.36 inches. The cancer was found in only one location and thus excludes a stage 4 diagnosis.

Per several medical studies that I’ve read on the Internet, the over/under on tumor size for esophageal cancer is 3 cm (or 30 mm) in height. Under 3 cm, the odds are much better for survival. Over 3 cm, the odds are markedly worse. Per one study that did three divisions, under 3 cm, 3 to 6 cm, and over 6 cm; the numbers are even worse over 6 cm. This is regardless of stage of the cancer.

The difference between stage 2 and 3 for cancer in this situation is a matter of how many layers of esophageal tissue that the cancer has penetrated. More superficial is stage 2 and more layers containing cancer is stage 3. Given the size of the tumor, I think it’s stage 3, but the doctor won’t commit to saying that. The doctor said that the treatment is the same so why does it matter? As an aside, the doctor capable of making the determination is on vacation so waiting for the endoscopy ultrasound would cause even more delays in treatment.

Oh, the treatment is six weeks of daily radiation and weekly chemotherapy. This will be followed by surgery to remove the cancerous area. Per Doctor Google, as my wife calls the Internet, the surgery portion for this type of cancer is pure butchery. When I think about this treatment plan, I have a mental picture of Star Trek’s Dr. McCoy (Deforest Kelly) mumbling about the damn primitive 20th Century butchers.

Deforest Kelly Star Trek IV

Besides waiting to get a start date for treatment, we are waiting to be contacted by a “nurse navigator”. Apparently, this nurse will be our go-to person and point of contact to guide us thru the maze of cancer treatment. My sister says there is also a similar person whose job is to guide you thru the financial and insurance obstacles necessary to get treatment.

After writing this draft we did get more info on the treatment plan from a “clinical nurse navigator”. Also, and I don’t know if its just because its August or it’s a Covid thing, but the radiologist assigned my wife’s treatment is on vacation and thus we are experiencing another delay as we wait for him to return. Ditto for the surgeon. Additionally, due to Labor Day being during the first full week of September, we may be pushed back another week because they want chemo on Mondays (of course they have Monday holidays off). Thus, we are probably looking at another three-week delay before any treatment will begin. Hurry up and wait may be monotonous for military life but for this type of cancer, its just more time for it to grow and spread, two things that make it even more life threatening. I think the doctors should be allowed vacation but the fact that their workload seems to freeze when that happens is concerning. Sometimes it feels like our emergency is not their problem. I’ll post more as things develop further.

Simone Biles is not the GOAT

Took me a while to write this due to the outrage I have toward vile Biles and her performance at the Olympics this past month.  Folks first of all Simone Bile’s is a gymnast and is very decorated, winning 4 Olympic golds in 2016, along with a bronze.  She has won other various events, but we are only going to discuss the Olympic wins.  Specifically, the 2020 Olympics’ and the nickname she gave herself “The Goat” which means Greatest of All Time.

Bile sporting her trademark goat

Fast forward to 2020 er 2021 due to Covid.  Bile’s who calls herself the GOAT and landed tons of endorsement deals grabbed a silver medal in the team competition, then prior to her events (again she is the best in the world, just ask her) she dropped out, saying it was a mental health crisis.  While we here at reallyright.com respect mental health and the struggles that go along with it, Bile’s story does not add up.

These were her best events so why drop out then, as opposed to earlier?  She claimed to have been suffering from this for a while.  If she was then why not send someone else in her place?  These Olympian folks train for years for this, and most do not get to make the trip as the team size is limited in numbers.  Biles sat out all the events until the balance beam event and she won bronze…congrats?  I say it that way because the media fawned all over her and loved that she was taking a principled stand for mental health.  They proclaimed Biles a role model and someone to be looked up to.  She cost her team and the USA badly.  Good luck explaining that to the media or the cable watching cabal who think she is the greatest of all time.

Bile shows bronze as in win, place, or show

Folks I just want to put someone else in the same scenario and see if you still have sympathy for Ms. Biles. Say someone who actually is the Greatest of All Time, like Tom Brady quit on his team and claimed mental health.  Say 2 minutes left in a game, trailing by 2, and he gets the “twisties.”  For some reason I don’t think the reaction would be anything close to the same.  Quite frankly the major news networks would be trashing him. If you don’t believe me, just tune in after a loss to any news medium.  Brady would stand no chance, since he is a professional athlete.  In the case of Biles, she gets to perform on a big stage once every 4 years, how could a mental health issue stop that? 

Tom Brady one of the greatest

My hot take is this and it will likely land me in hot water with our readers, but I feel Biles never took her training seriously.  Maybe it was Covid, or maybe her mouth wrote checks that her body couldn’t cash, or the endorsements came so easy her head wasn’t prepared, who knows, but it seems genuinely odd to sit out of all your big events sans the last one due to mental health.  She claims to have been a foster kid so I would never question her resolve and will to battle against the odds, but when the lights went on she crumbled?  When she returned stateside one would think she would get some help right? Nope, she decided to hang out at her pool next to her boyfriend who she labels “The hottest pool boy ever.”  Doesn’t sound like a mental health crisis to me, sounds like a made-up fairytale.

My take is this, Biles had no mental health issue, she didn’t take her training seriously.  There was pressure on her to get gold, but she decided not to take it seriously. She knows she has natural talent so why worry? The pressure on her was nothing compared to what a normal professional athlete has to handle.  Also, the Olympics were taking place between 1-3 am USA time so it’s not like there was a huge live audience.  In addition, with viewership down over 50% it’s not like it was the talk at the watercooler the following day.  She then got over her crisis for her last event and placed bronze so the media could put a bow on her fantasyland story.  All this from someone who calls herself the greatest of all time and even wears a goat logo on her apparel. 

Biles fooled everyone and the media fawned all over it.  This was not a fairytale ending. She manufactured this so her performance would not be judged negatively.  A GOAT does not wuss-out and blame mental health.  If you had a crisis, why didn’t you fly back stateside and seek out help?

Ali said he was the greatest and backed it up

Tom Brady and Muhammad Ali were among the greatest in their respective fields and proved it every chance they got; in contrast, Biles concocted a way to save her fiscal/endorsement butt and laughed all the way to the bank without having to back it up. She is best not compared with other world-class gymnasts but folks like P.T. Barnham.

CA GOP Taxes its Delegates

So, this past Saturday was the California Republican Party Gubernatorial recall election endorsing convention.  It was not held in a hotel or conference room it was done virtually. 

Folks, the CAGOP has been misrun for years, and yet no one seems to really care.  You had Tom Del Beccaro drinking to excess and using the delegate list as a dating service, Ron Nehring who flew frequently to Australia; not trying to start or fuel a rumor but I heard there was a mistress involved here.  I do not know much about Jim Brulte or his reign, but I know the party no longer has any money.  We now have first Latinx chair Jessica Millan Patterson, and to say she is a disaster is putting it mildly.  Patterson makes over $250k a year, her counterpart in the very much dominant Democrat Party makes less than half that.

But on to the endorsing convention.

First of all, why is the party endorsing a candidate?  It’s a non-partisan race, due to it being a recall.  The party should only take an endorsement of; Yes to recall Comrade Newsom.  Let the chips fall where they may after.  Well for some reason, a rumor was started that former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer wanted an endorsement, it was parroted around as if it were gospel.  Faulconer did not want the endorsement; actually, no candidate did.  This was being pushed from the inside of the party headquarters, by Shawn Steel, Harmeet Dhillon, and Jessica Patterson.  Again, Faulconer did not want to seek the endorsement, and frankly why would he want to?  Registration is at 24% statewide, it’s a kiss of death.

So, the week of the convention, a movement started to have a “no endorsement vote” which led to a direct appeal from Shawn Steel and Harmeet Dhillion (there are those names again) to not endorse.  The convention started and literally only half the delegates showed up to vote, roughly 800.  This is due to the CAGOP making delegates pay $50 for the right to cast their vote.  I call this a pole tax, yet 800 willingly paid.  The motion to not endorse passed overwhelmingly with about 80% or so voting in favor.  Steel and Dhillon were revered as folks who “stopped the steal;” however, the reality is that they were the conductors of this scheme.  You see, the party charged $50 per delegate which times 800 equals roughly $40K they raised.  Since the convention was virtual there were virtually zero expenses.  Thankfully half the delegates didn’t fall for this pay to play tax scheme, sadly the other half did. 

Faulconer did not want the endorsement just to say it again.  This was a drill run by Jessica Patterson via her Lieutenant’s Dhillon and Steel.  You see Dhillon is a former ACLU lawyer who once was viewed as unacceptable to be vice chair of the party however she was elected and has since been re-elected. Shawn Steel is the husband of Congressperson (we don’t do gender here) Michelle Park Steel.  Better known to me as the serpent from the Garden of Eden.  Where there is money, endorsements, or power; you can always see Steel slithering around.  But the delegates and party continue to elect these folks as they now serve as national committee delegates. Sheep do sheep things.

Congrats on paying $50 to endorse no one and taking the principled stand against a candidate who didn’t even want the endorsement. Hope this all works out but it sounds like the party made money, consultants likely made money, and you parted with $50.  Aaron Park put it on his blog the convention lasted so short the price per minute made phone sex a cheaper alternative.  (His words not mine.)  Is it a wonder why several GOP elected’s always seem to side with the Democrats on tax hikes and the party doesn’t care?  The party apparatus just taxed their own activists, and they didn’t seem to care either.  Where is the outrage!

Dr. Fauci Admits to Guessing on Youth and Masking Mandates

Folks it isn’t nice to pick on older citizens, but enough is enough with this Dr. Fauci.  Take a look at what he had to say in an interview with Hugh Hewitt.

“It’s not comfortable, obviously, for children to wear masks, particularly the younger children,” he said. “But you know, what we’re starting to see, Hugh, and I think it’s going to unfold even more as the weeks go by, that this virus not only is so extraordinarily transmissible, but we’re starting to see pediatric hospitals get more and more younger people and kids not only numerically, but what seems to be more severe disease. 

“Now we’re tracking that, the CDC is tracking that really very carefully, so it’s going to be a balance that we would feel very badly if we all of a sudden said OK, kids, don’t wear masks, then you find out retrospectively that this virus in a very, very strange and unusual way is really hitting kids really hard,” he continued. “But hopefully, this will be a temporary thing, temporary enough that it doesn’t have any lasting negative impact on them.”

Yep, hopefully it’s temporary and doesn’t have any lasting effects on them.  Kind of like let’s pass the bill to find out what is in it.  Just as a sidebar, my doctor has told me implicitly in regards to masking, “do not wear a mask while working out, it’s horrible for your health as it restricts airflow.”  Yet it is ok for young people to wear masks all day in a school setting?  Oh, furthermore they will not have to wear masks while at lunch, I guess the virus takes a lunch break just like humans do?

Folks this is crazy. Vaccinated or not we must mask, and our kids must mask too. Clearly this stupid vaccine is not all that great. How is it in a country of about 350 million, the only leadership we have is a doctor whose best days are in the distant past?  Shame on Joe Biden for wheeling him out there every day and making him answer questions from reporters about Covid.  No one knows anything about this virus except the Chinese workers at the Wuhan lab, and they aren’t allowed to talk.  We collectively freaked out as a society, mask, no mask, dine in, no dine in, but the numbers never went down.  We demand answers yet our scientists and doctors cannot supply them since we know nothing about this virus and how it behaves.

One last thought, please riddle me this “science believers,” since I had Covid why should I get a vaccine?  Shouldn’t the presence of anti-bodies in my blood be good enough?  One more thought, my colleague did a 2 shot Moderna, a friend did the 2 shot Pfizer.  Both were inoculated four plus months ago, both got Covid, both got it pretty severely.  Maybe quit drinking the Kool Aid and start looking at this with an open mind, we have no answers.  Quit making Fauci “Meet the Depressed” every day.  And quit agreeing to mask mandates and restrictions on your freedoms.  Wear a mask if you want, don’t if you don’t want.

Hope your kids don’t get “affected” by wearing a mask all day at school, but hey science says its ok.  Or was that a Dr who has been wrong the entire time?

Chief

Editor’s Note: My wife has been an educator for many years. She has always worked with small children. There is no doubt in her mind that the way Covid is being handled is permanently harming our children. Fearing our neighbors is the stuff of Communist tyrannies not freedom loving Americans. This whole episode is yet another example of the compassion of the wicked being cruelty.

Covid Stuff That You Probably Never Saw

Below is a summary of several articles on Covid-19 that you probably never saw on your local news outlet. They are not presented in any particular order.

If you think being vaccinated gives you immunity to Covid then you are wrong and ill informed.

So, you got vaccinated! You still need a mask. You still need to isolate yourself—and you will still get the virus. You may have felt good getting jabbed. Or you felt bullied into taking an experimental drug, where the manufacturers REFUSE to tell you the risks—nor willing to take financial responsibility when things go wrong. Now, you are as susceptible as anyone else to get the virus. In fact, now you can be a super spreader.

“Five days earlier, I had gone to a house party in Montgomery County. There were 15 adults there, all of us fully vaccinated. The next day, our host started to feel sick. The day after that, she tested positive for COVID-19. She let all of us know right away. I wasn’t too worried. It was bad luck for my friend, but surely she wasn’t that contagious. Surely all of us were immune. I’d been sitting across the room from her. I figured I’d stay home and isolate from my family for a few days, and that would be that. And even that seemed like overkill…

Then, I started to hear that a few other people who had been at the party were getting sick. Then a few more. At this point, 11 of the 15 have tested positive for COVID.

I went to a party with 14 other vaccinated people; 11 of us got COVID

And there probably is no more clear an illustration of that uncertainty as the recent announcement from Carnival that there are positive COVID cases aboard its Carnival Vista cruise ship.

That’s because, according to The Liberty Daily, every staff member and every guest on the ship was vaccinated.

“Somewhere near Cozumel in the Caribbean Sea, there’s a cruise ship that had zero unvaccinated people aboard but that still suffered an outbreak of COVID-19,” the report said. “This goes against the narrative that the reason for ‘breakthrough cases’ is due to too many unvaccinated people mingling with those who have taken the experimental injections.”

Need to Fake a Positive Covid Test? ask a Kid

Some children have found a devious method to get out of school – using cola to create false positive Covid tests. How does it work?

Children are always going to find cunning ways to bunk off school, and the latest trick is to fake a positive Covid-19 lateral flow test (LFT) using soft drinks. [Videos of the trick have been circulating on TikTok since December and a school in Liverpool, UK, recently wrote to parents to warn them about it.] So how are fruit juices, cola and devious kids fooling the tests, and is there a way to tell a fake positive result from a real one? I’ve tried to find out.

First, I thought it best to check the claims, so I cracked open bottles of cola and orange juice, then deposited a few drops directly onto LFTs. Sure enough, a few minutes later, two lines appeared on each test, supposedly indicating the presence of the virus that causes Covid-19.

How children are spoofing Covid-19 tests with soft drinks

This article gets into the nitty-gritty of Covid test strips and how this works. Since its written by a chemistry professor, you shouldn’t expect anything less.

Blame the Unvaccinated

For days, the mainstream media have been playing a loop of reports that 99% of COVID-19 deaths are among unvaccinated people.

Besides there being no data —there’s actually evidence that the opposite is true – it’s become the basis for a stream of dehumanizing propaganda that labels half of the American adult population and most children who haven’t taken experimental COVID-19 shots as “variant factories” and “incubators” of disease.

It’s frighteningly similar to early Nazi propaganda that referred to “filthy Jews” as spreaders of disease and stirred up irrational fear and hatred of millions of people in German society. It was a government message used to justify quarantining a people, starving them, and then annihilating them.

“Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated – and they’re killing people,” Joe Biden told reporters on Friday.
Rochelle Walensky, Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said something similar earlier that day: “This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

Why ‘the pandemic of the unvaccinated’ is a lie

The CDC stopped counting a critical pandemic parameter, but other countries did not. The U.K. data on “variants of concern” reveals that there were 92 deaths of unvaccinated people compared to 163 among the vaccinated (most of them fully vaccinated). These mortality figures are miniscule in a country of 66 million people. But if you’re talking vaccine success, when you compare rates of deaths between the two groups from their case numbers, it’s the vaccinated who come out worse off – with odds of death nearly nine times higher than the unvaccinated.

In Israel, it was reported June 29 that the vaccine was failing and most new cases of COVID were in the vaccinated. Roughly 60% of the patients in serious conditions had been vaccinated and, according to Hebrew University researchers advising the government, around 90% of newly infected people over the age of 50 are fully vaccinated.

If in countries like Israel, with higher vaccination rates than most of the world, it is the vaccinated who are infected, and the vaccinated can get and spread disease, then it’s time to stop the “filthy unvaccinated” propaganda and let people make their own medical choices free of coercion.

Oh, lest you think the story above is an outlier, feast your eyes on this next story.

Study: COVID Cases are Increasing in Counties with Higher Vaccination Rates, Declining in Counties with Lower Vaccination Rates

An analysis in California has shown that counties with above-average vaccination rates have higher COVID-19 case totals, which drives a stake through the heart of the propaganda line that the unvaccinated are causing a new wave of cases.


The Bay Area News Group discovered that he counties of Los Angeles, San Diego, Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco have a higher percentage of people who are fully vaccinated than the state average as well as a higher average daily case rate.


Meanwhile, the counties of Modoc, Glenn, Lassen, Del Norte, and San Benito have below average vaccination rates and are seeing a decline in cases. The so-called experts are attempting to make excuses for these findings in order to coerce support for the vaccine regime.

No Scientific reason to Vaccinate the Young, In Fact Reality says Don’t Even Think About It

Evidence of an emerging two-tiered society is difficult to overlook — a society in which young people face immeasurable pressure to inject something into their bodies that they fear is much more dangerous than the disease it claims, without much scientific data, to prevent. The COVID recovery rate in people aged 17 to 22 is known to be 99.9 percent but the long-term health impact of the shots will be anybody’s guess.


The average age of people dying of COVID in America is 77. For someone that age, the long term risks of an experimental vaccine may not be that big of a deal.


But what if you’re 18 or 20 years old and have another 60 or 70 years of life ahead of you?


…McCullough, a cardiologist, internist and epidemiologist on the medical staff at Baylor University in Texas, said he has personally been very busy in recent weeks treating young people with vaccine-related injuries, most of them permanent injuries involving cases in which the COVID spike protein collected in the heart, the blood vessels, the brain, the ovaries and other organs.


…Meanwhile, the casualties continue to mount, says Dr. McCullough.


“Most of what I’ve mentioned are permanent. That is the great fear. The neurological ones are very worrisome, and so we’re seeing these now in practice six or nine months later,” he said. “The first thing the patients ask is, ‘Am I going to have this ringing in my ears forever or is this going to go away?’ Or, a patient reports ‘my face is paralyzed on one side, is it going to get partially better or am I going to be stuck with my face contorted?’”

McCullough said anyone considering these vaccines ought to be asking serious questions.

Long Term Effects of Vaccine May Not Be Seen for 10 to 15 Years

Dr. Seneff serves as Senior research scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and is the author of Toxic Legacy, How the Weedkiller Glyphosate Is Destroying Our Health and the Environment. The MIT scientist wrote a research paper with Dr. Greg Nigh titled: “Worse Than the Disease?

Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19” for the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research.


Dr. Weld explains:
“Dr. Seneff’s background led her to have concerns about the Covid-19 vaccines that are being heavily promoted. These vaccines use a novel mRNA technology, and their long-term effects remain unknown. However, there is sufficient published scientific information to explain some of the mechanisms behind the adverse effects these vaccines are having now and what they might cause in the years and decades ahead. She anticipates an increase in autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases, which take 10 to 15 years to manifest themselves.”


Some of the major points of the RAIR exclusive interview:

  • Dr. Seneff “anticipates that there will be long-term damage that won’t instantly be linked to the vaccine. Developments, such as an increase in auto-immune and neurodegenerative diseases, which may take 10 to 15 years before manifesting themselves.” “We are in for a big surprise down the road,” she predicts.
  • Dr. Seneff believes the vaccine would exacerbate symptoms of those with Parkinson’s.
  • Those who claimed that mRNA would not impact DNA are “wrong.”
  • Spike protein “really has become the most toxic part of the virus” and exists when Covid is gone.
  • “Among the possibilities she foresees is an increase in Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD), a prion disease (or protein misfolding disease) comparable to mad cow disease.”
  • “There is an epidemic of Alzheimer disease, which people are getting at an increasingly younger age. The recklessly and haphazardly implementation of the vaccine roll-out will contribute to this trend.”

MIT Scientist: Covid Vaccines May Cause Diseases in ’10 to 15 years’

I wonder what tune the media would be singing if the Orange Man was still in the White House? Certainly, they would be opposing vaccination due to the myriad of unintended consequences resulting from the jab but they certainly own it now.
