There is not a lot of real news this morning, at least in the headlines.
Besides the mainstream media making fools of ’emselves with this Rittenhouse Roulette nonsense. Used to be in America, we embraced process (including jury trials) because (write this down and review daily) process is your friend.
Even if you move overseas. Like some of our Ex-Pat readers have. Sure, living in a different country is “different.” But, you can quickly adapt if you just get to the root of “local processes” – how, and why they evolved.
Processes in America Hijacked
Whole point of law is to ensure equitable processes. However, since Nikita put his shoe down in the early 1960s, the American communists have been actively destroying processes in [what used to be] America.
Let me give you a fine example:
The U.S. government has a process to get at information the government is covering-up because bureaucrats don’t want to be held accountable. When the law was enacted, government response was reasonable. But, since government is not more honest than any other thug, government stopped doing the People’s Business.
A current example of how government can’t even follow their own rules is evident reading “Wait what? FDA wants 55 years to process FOIA request over vaccine data | Reuters.”
Ass-covering takes time. It isn’t like “releasing documents” is a real issue. Besides, everyone but the Stupid Elite knows all the docs are already in electronic format. 10-minutes to copy the world. Hello?
But, that’s another problem. If we had a responsive FDA, they would actually publish everything including job offers of all FDA employees to move over to the dark side (capture regulators who own the process of drug approval). But they don’t, they won’t. Joe’s part of it, Harris is part of it. From the top down we are Ruled by people who can’t even follow their own. Freakin’ dandy.
Latest CV-19 (UK) Data
Notwithstanding, the manipulation to ass-cover has not set in over in England, so far. But as soon as QE2 departs this world, we’ll see UK processes collapse, as well.
BUT! In the meantime, their simple data releases tell us things our own government can’t speak of:
The problem in the US is (as the lefties did in the courts) our deviation from honesty (<–gee, that was gentle) came as the result of process-jacking in government in general and in CDC/FDA in particular.
From the very top. Where the lawyers in charge of lying to the customers (*us) even had to change the definition of “vaccine.” When government tells the truth and then “explains it” but only in a certain way, listen for the sheep shears.
We don’t roll up our sleeves for liars.
The risk of Elaine (or me) dying of the ‘rona is (top line) no question 3.22 times greater because we haven’t vaccinated, yet.
But, now the math lesson: Of the 65.6 in the unvaccinated 70-79 year old’s in the UK study, how many of those who died were in hospital (or had been)? Because in hospital, blood thinners would have been mainlined…because cardiac issues it’s a known risk of the disease and some if not all the mRNA vaccines. Thing is, if there baseline care isn’t nearly identical, then (‘oh duh’ moment here) results will vary. Especially since simple aspirin in one study showed aspirin reduced mortality by 47%.
Let me roll with the B-school beanie hat on for a minute. If one reduces the mortality rate by 47% (*30.83 humans from the unvaxxed UK data pool in 70-79 demos, but let’s round to 31 because I’m lazy.
When we back out “saves” that might be inferred from the article on aspirin, we can go with either 34.768 People, or 34.6 – depending on your philosophy of rounding – I figure our non-vax risk is somewhere in the 1.7 times area.
Since no one ever comes to visit us, though, and since we do drive-by shopping and WallyZon does the rest? Well, if anything sneaks through that, we’re down to well-powered immune systems: The NAC, vit. D, vit C, zinc, selenium, multi-vits and all the rest? Yeah, I’ve thought about Prozac…
Meanwhile, hats off to the UK for putting a few details out.
But it sure would be nice to see the “un processed” stats, here in the Colonies..
Though we do understand, the socialist Amerijacking continues.
On the economics side, this is a “fart in church” quiet morning. A minor report on something around 10, but the shearing looks good. Ran up the indexes Thursday, now drop to cover…
Since the turkey flies next week, a good sell-off into the close today, could set up a predictable rally ahead of the Holidays. This would be based on the Elliott idea that when our last Aggregate Index current all-time high came in (Nov. 5), we saw a minor 1 down, with 2 possibly completing Thursday.
That would suggest today a Wave 1 of a larger 3 down, into Turkey day for Wave 2 of the larger 3, Then serious downside in December. Has me eyeing early spring put options out of the money. Depends on the Ukraine news flow.
And that’s where we roll back over into reality:
Dear Stupid President: Did you see this, Joe? Ukraine must have 2,500 km border fence with Belarus and Russia, minister says | Reuters. Wanna ask your screwed-up commie libtards how fences can work for UKRAINE (remember the $$?), how fences can work in Israel. Berlin Wall…China’s Great Wall…remember em? Why, they even put up fences around the capitol up the street to protect The House Squeaker and Schemer back in January. Where did you learn to slice reality so thin? F**kin sushi school? You can see through things sliced this thin, Joe.
Up the road a short piece: Belarus bringing hundreds in trucks to cross into EU: Poland.
Two-Bit Wedge Play: Here’s the low-down on China threatens Lithuania over Taiwan office opening (apnews.com) The play? Two-fold: U.S. neocons are using Taiwan to get a dig at Putin in eastern Europe. And because it involves a Russian-leaning country, slows the eventual Russia-China remarriage. Still a few years out.
Banker Outrage: I can’t even make this up: Biden Treasury pick Omarova could lead to demise of community banks, banking industry CEO warns. Wiki Ovaroma and you’ll see that… “In 2020, Omarova wrote a report for think tank Data for Progress, where she stated the “Green New Deal (GND) movement has successfully propelled [a] programmatic vision of an environmentally clean, just, and equitable future.” Pass the Kool-Aid. Another MMT rush at remnants of sanity. Kazakh/Soviet-educated, no less. Well, till our programmers in law school, here in ‘Merica for her, lol.
Jimmy Hoffa’s still dead. But this looks like a TV movie plot: Jimmy Hoffa: Deathbed confession sparks long-missing US union boss body hunt.
The the Urban Department of Useless Bullshit: Don’t be afraid to be the change, fearless youngsters tell UN Youth Summit. Like our own one-worlder lefties in education aren’t enough, the UN-globalists are out programming kids, too? In a land where exceptionalism has been axe murdered, I suppose nothing is too shocking to report. Bring six kids to Geneva and pretend it matters. Just freakin peachy.
Wasn’t it Freud or Jung who said “You’re cured when you agree with your therapist?” Or, words to that effect.
Time for My Meds
Yeah…Mr. Cynicism is in a pissy. Although, Friday night pot roast and a new Blacklist episode is ahead, so it can’t be all bad. Too cool today for the glasses of Piasano on the screen porch. Thing is, though, cool working in the shop, too.
Debating which drone upgrade to roll with as a Christmas toysent. Our small surveillance pal is not very suitable for lifting Kevlar line over trees for antennas.
More tomorrow on PN and the ShopTalk Sunday column,
Write when you get rich,
