P&D Today

By Rich Kozlovich 

Political Cartoons by Al Goodwyn

Today there are three commentaries.

But the rest of today's P&D exclusively deals with the impact of the unconstitutional mandates that forced perfectly healthy people to receive treatments that were called vaccinations, when in reality these weren't vaccines, they were experimental genetic manipulating drugs.  And now we're seeing the terrible consequences of those tyrannous commands to society.  Below are a series of articles dealing with this, some with a lot of additional links. 

There's a lot more of this available regarding these Sudden Unexplained Deaths, and I am perfectly willing to state not all these deaths are a result of these false vaccines if everyone else is willing to admit the data shows these genetic manipulating drugs have dramatically risen the number of unexplained deaths of perfectly healthy people, including many athletes.

When the pesticide chlordane was rolled out the environmentalists screamed ...cancer... cancer... cancer..., it causes cancer, without one iota of evidence, and in fact the rate of cancer didn't increase at all when chlordane, or for that matter, when every other pesticide was introduced into society. If products cause some health problem it appears in a very short time in the data. It didn't, yet we're seeing massive unexplained deaths that are directly related to the introduction of these false vaccines, and they're still being pushed.   This is our Thalidomide era, and I do wish someone besides me would say it, only it's going to be far worse than Thalidomide ever was, and farther ranging.   

Correlation isn't causation, until it is.

Deaths From “Unknown” Causes Are Now the Leading Killer in Alberta, Canada Following the Rollout of the Experimental Vaccine – 2021 Total Significantly Higher than 2019

By Julian ConradsonJuly 25, 2022 538 Comments 

Public health officials in the Canadian Province of Alberta are sounding the alarm after they recorded an unprecedented rise in deaths from “unknown” or “ill-defined” causes in 2020 and 2021. The total number of these deaths began rising at the start of the Covid pandemic but really began ballooning out of control following the rollout of the experimental jab.

According to the most recent data published by the Government of Alberta, deaths from “unknown” causes became the leading killer in the province – claiming more lives than heart disease, diabetes, and strokes, COMBINED – in 2021. When compared to pre-pandemic data the total number of deaths without a known cause is a staggering 7x higher than it was in 2019...........To Read More.... 


SHOCKING: Millennials Experienced the “Worst-Ever Excess Mortality in History” – An 84% Increase In Deaths After Vaccine Mandates Introduced (VIDEO)

By Julian Conradson March 19, 2022 440 Comments @ Gateway Pundit

Coincidentally – or not – Alberta’s spike in unexplained deaths coincides perfectly with the introduction of the experimental COVID vaccine. Furthermore, the public health bureaucracy’s failure to classify a cause of death for nearly 3,500 cases – especially with today’s modern technology – is downright inexcusable, albeit unsurprising. It’s also worth pointing out that Covid deaths 

just over half of the total number of deaths with unknown causes, indicating that the spike in death is not being driven predominantly by the virus or the pandemic. This mirrors the data cited above, which also showed that a small percentage of the increase was attributable to Covid deaths. 

Unfortunately for Americans, this type of data is being suppressed and our public health officials are doing everything in their power to downplay the adverse side effects that are caused by the experimental vaccines while continuing to green-light more doses. 

However, either way – if the vaccines are driving this massive uptick in unexplained death, or not – this issue needs to be seriously investigated, but the ‘experts are refusing to do so in order to keep the approved narrative intact. Meanwhile, the body count just keeps on piling up. This universal Covid vaccination push will go down as one of – if not the – worst atrocities ever perpetrated on mankind. 

How many more unexplained deaths need to keep popping up until Americans and the rest of the world see some accountability for what’s happened? Sadly, we are likely in for a lot more in the near future.

New CDC Data Shows Covid Shot Myocarditis Concerns Are Legit

Woman drops dead at pharmacy within 15 minutes of booster shot

'She was happy and perfectly healthy'

A Canadian woman who died within 15 minutes of receiving a COVID-19 booster shot was in good health, according to her daughter, who blames the vaccine.  Carol Pearce was in a text exchange with her daughter, Stephanie Foster, when she went to a Shoppers Drug Mart in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Sept. 14, reported the Alberta-based independent paper the Western Standard..............To Read More........

New Covid Plandemic Documentary Exposes the Truth About Ivermectin and the Scandal That Let Millions of People Die Needlessly

September 24, 2022 by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News

Film producer Mikki Willis self-funded and self-published the most censored and most-viewed documentary in 2020 exposing the fraud concerning the COVID-19 “pandemic” that he and others have correctly relabeled as the “Plandemic.”

If you have never watched it, you are truly missing very important information about the pre-planned event that changed our world forever. See:

Willis is now producing Plandemic III, and he recently released a 13-minute documentary on Ivermectin, the FDA-approved drug with a 30+ year record of safety and efficacy, which many physicians began to use to treat symptomatic COVID patients with, and a near 100% recovery success rate.................To Read More....

Europe suffers horrifying 755% increase in Excess Deaths among Children since EMA approved COVID Vaccine for Kids

 

The Jab Put Me on a Journey I Didn’t Expect -- Or Want

This is my COVID story, which is more about the vaccine than the virus. It doesn’t represent scientific evidence -- but then the medical experts refuse to give us any real scientific evidence -- only the prevarications of Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx.

For some background: I am a 66-year-old man. I do have a few comorbidities as I have diabetes. However, I am in fairly good condition. Up until a year prior to the COVID outbreak I was a diver for our sheriff’s department and passed the IADRS swim test every year.

I have never been an anti-vaccine nut, and have tended to trust the medical industry. That is a trust that has been forever shaken by the events of the past year.............I began wondering how many other people have had similar experiences. Over 340,522 people have reported negative COVID vaccine reactions to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). As of last May (only five months into the vaccine frenzy) 4496 people had died. Statistically insignificant? Maybe, or maybe not. But in 1976 the government pulled the swine flu vaccine after only three people mysteriously died.

A study by the DoD reported that among 436,000 military members, the incidence of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart) quadrupled after the vaccine was administered..................To Read More....


154 Scientists at Los Alamos Nuke Lab Defected to China

by 17 Comments

Defected of course implies that they ever worked for any nation other than China. It’s a good thing that the Biden administration corruptly shut down the Trump administration’s attempt to stop Communist China from spying on us, manipulating us and robbing us blind to avoid offending anyone… like Beijing.

“We have heard concerns from the civil rights community that the “China Initiative” fueled a narrative of intolerance and bias. To many, that narrative suggests that the Justice Department treats people from China or of Chinese descent differently. The rise in anti-Asian hate crime and hate incidents only heightens these concerns.”

Goodbye China Initiative and U.S. National Security...........There’s a huge difference between Chinese immigrants opposed to the regime and those who are supportive or loyal to it. We used to make those distinctions with Russia, we threw them away with China. Does anyone even bother asking the folks with top clearance to denounce the regime? Or would that also be too offensive?..... To Read More....


Understanding the Energy Malfeasance Gripping the United States

By | Aug 4, 2022 |   @ Malcolm Out Loud 

 

One of the central premises of current US policies with respect to energy, the environment, and the economy is that governments understand what drives energy markets so well that they can, in effect, engineer the outcomes that they want, whether those relate to supply, demand or prices. The Biden Administration offers a useful demonstration of whether that premise is correct. Well, of course, it is not correct. It borders on insanity that these unskilled morons could manage a subject they have virtually zero understanding about.

Reacting to sharply higher prices for gasoline and other refined oil products, the Biden Administration has appealed to OPEC countries to increase crude oil production and reportedly offered some concessions to adversaries like Venezuela and Iran if they will increase production. It has demanded that domestic producers increase their production. President Biden has recently told US oil refiners that they must rapidly increase capacity. 

The higher profits that refiners have made in a period of product scarcity, Mr. Biden has said, are not acceptable.” Understand our shortage of oil and doubled prices at the gasoline pump are not only the Biden Tyrannies plan but likely controlled by Obama in the shadows on his $14 million beach house along with George Soros and a number of equally evil communists. It is time to recognize this and broadcast it.

Why, though, are gas prices rising? It starts with the cost of crude oil.

The average price of a barrel of crude oil (West Texas Intermediate, the benchmark in North America) rose from an average of about US $68 in 2021 to US $116 on June 15, 2022. This was due mainly to the effects of the sanctions imposed on Russian crude oil and the resulting uncertainty in world oil markets. So, other things equal, the increase in crude costs would raise gasoline prices by about 70 percent.

Except that other things are not equal. Taxes provide part of the answer. The federal and state governments impose excise taxes, sales taxes, and in some cases, special charges related to carbon dioxide emissions. The federal excise tax is 18.4 cents per gallon. The state taxes vary widely, from 16 cents per gallon in Hawaii to 58 cents per gallon in Pennsylvania. Taxes are probably rising fastest in California, where the state now charges 51 cents per gallon.

A less-understood cause of the increase is the lack of refinery capacity. Around three million barrels per day of global refining capacity was closed during the COVID pandemic, and one million barrels per day of that was in the United States. Some US refineries were shuttered and/or are being converted to producing biofuels in keeping with the policy objectives of the Biden Administration and the major subsidies being provided for biofuels production. Biofuels are worthless to the economy, except they allow the price of corn to the farmers to increase between 25 and 50 cents a bushel. A complete subsidy scam that punishes every American consumer.

By the end of 2023, according to the US Institute of Energy Research, an additional 1.69 million barrels per day of US refinery capacity is expected to close as a result of unwarranted EPA rules and restrictions intended to do what they are doing. Ultimately brings the public to its knees, begging for energy. Operating near full capacity, refineries have little flexibility to respond to short-term changes in supply or demand.

Further, several factors are causing sharp increases in diesel fuel prices. These have included a surge in natural gas prices (used in the production of diesel) due to increased European demand, a reduction in the sulfur content of maritime fuels, and increased US exports of diesel fuel to Europe to displace Russian supplies. US diesel fuel inventories have dropped to about 104 million barrels, a two-decade low. Once again, the object is to make capitalism look bad to a public not educated in any way about the ways of oil and natural gas either in the ground or above the ground.

US refiners are now increasing jet fuel and diesel production instead of gasoline. This has significant spillover effects in terms of reducing gasoline inventories and increasing the price of gasoline.

So what went wrong? Nothing went wrong; it has gone as planned by evil communists pulling all of the demented Biden’s strings.

If the Biden Administration had not strongly discouraged the additional development and transportation of domestic oil supplies and limited leasing for exploration and development on federal lands, it would have increased domestic production and helped to lower crude oil prices. But why should they want to do that? They are power mad and think they can get away with anything.

If the US government had not provided such large subsidies for biofuels, there would be more refining capacity to handle surges in demand. If governments and environmentalists had not used regulations to block the construction of new refineries (only one built in the last thirty years), there would be more flexibility in the refining industry. If governments in Europe, driven by climate policy, had not left themselves so reliant on oil supplies from Russia, the industry there would not be seeking to bid away the refined oil product supplies needed in North America. If the state governments were not so intent on taxing drivers, gasoline prices would be lower.

But this was all the plan, and it is time to recognize it.

Today, neither governments nor industries can simply flip a switch” and increase crude oil production or refining capacity. Government policies have promoted scarcity, and now the President bemoans the fact that prices, and consequently profits, are higher. Hopefully, a segment of intelligent Americans will see through the plan and vote Republican next November. What does that say about the Administrations ability to plan the energy economy in the US or the world? It says they are eminently successful.

Someone Didn't Get the Sri Lanka Message

By Rich Kozlovich 

On September 24, 2022 this piece appeared on Malcolm Out Loud, Taking Back Control of Your Life: Week 3 The Importance of Being Organically Grown.  Let me get right to the chase: This is absolute nonsense!

The go green, back to nature, organic, all natural crowd has done more damage to humanity than even the insane communists did in the 20th century, and they killed over 100 million innocent people, and the recent "go green" food disaster in Sri Lanka should have been the last word on that, but apparently someone didn't get the message.

At the end of WWII the world’s population was 2 billion people, and it took thousands of years to get there, yet in 75 years it soared to almost 7 billion people, and pesticides played a major role in that.  If these products were as harmful as these radical misfit nitwits claim, how did that happen?

Medicine advanced, but medicine can’t fix starvation, nor can it fix the disasters pests inflict on humanity, and malaria is one of them.  The ban on DDT  alone probably killed over 100 million people, not to mention their destructive behavior in stopping Golden Rice from being introduced for 20 years, which would have prevented 500,000 kids from going blind every year—and even dying—due to severe Vitamin A deficiency.   In 20 years that amounts to 10 million children who suffered unnecessary irreparable damage and/or died.  All that can hardly be classified as anything less than crimes against humanity.   And that's the tip of the iceberg.  When you hear these misfits claim what they do "is for the children", know that in reality what they do "is to the children". 

All their claims are speculation, junk science, mutilated science and fraudulent science filled with weasel words and phrases.   The Tulane study  regarding endocrine disruption (ED) is a perfect example.  It was clearly fraudulent but as a result of that fraudulent study the Food Quality Protection Act added an ED component to it and we lost two whole categories of pesticides and the nation became infested with bed bugs. 
 
As for Atrazine causing devastation to the frog population......FALSE!
 
The fact is we rarely hear this horsepucky any longer because we now know it’s caused by a fungus.  A dangerous infectious disease with the potential to drive species to extinction, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) is also known as chytrid fungus. It has already decimated more than 200 amphibian species and rewired eco systems all over the world.   And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of fallacious claims by these misfits at the EWG and their claptrap regarding the “dirty dozen”.   
 
People are living longer, healthier better fed lives with more variety of foods available than any time in human history, and modern chemistry is directly responsible.  That's history, and that history is incontestable.

P&D Today

Thought For the Day“The more one considers the matter, the clearer it becomes that redistribution is in effect far less a redistribution of income from richer to poorer, as we imagined, than a redistribution of power from the individual to the State.”—Bertrand de Jouvenel, The Ethics of Redistribution

 By Rich Kozlovich

 

I recently came across a comment posted in an article regarding the Shoe Cartoon Strip, and so I looked it up, and came across this cartoon, which so often depicts the insane things politicians and their talking head allies in the media spout.  

Meaningless babble that explains nothing and answers nothing.  Kamala Harris babbles word salads, Joe Biden has no idea what he's saying most of the time and Karine Jean-Pierre defines this cartoon with her obfuscations, and they're not even the worst.  Well, let's see, how's this?

  • Why isn't the administration enforcing America's immigration laws? 
    • Inflation is under control.
  • American's economy is in crisis, spending is out of control, inflation is skyrocketing, there are energy blackouts, and crime is worse than ever, what do you intend to do about it all?  
    • The real problem is racism.  We're facing a crisis of white supremacy, and domestic terrorists, so we're militarizing the FBI and the IRS, and arresting Donald Trump, and anyone who supports him, and those military personal who refuse vaccinations and gender training are going to be kicked out of the military.
  • What do you intend to do about Islamic terrorists?  
    • Islam is a religion of peace, so everything is fine and we're going to give Iran the right to make nuclear bombs to create stability in the Middle East.

Wow!  I think I'm ready for Press Secretary at the very least. Not one bit of that made sense, I'm now perfectly qualified to be part of the Biden administration.  

Today's P&D starts with my friend John Droz Jr's The Media Balance Newsletter: 9/26/22, followed by my commentary and four others I think are excellent.

I really liked today's selection, but particularly liked the piece by Jay Lehr and Tom Harris as it goes back into the history of the FDR administration and the huge government expansion they created, much of which we now know was a failure and was infested with communists, socialists, fellow travelers and even Soviet agents, and that even included the OSS created during WWII and was the precursor of the CIA, and the communist infiltrators moved right over into the CIA.

Observations From the Back Row: Fascists, Communists and Freedom's Forum

By Rich Kozlovich

Daily I get material from correspondents who like me ...they're newsies. One of these correspondents stores articles on issues and has been sending them to me. Here's her latest offering, and I think a good one considering the leftist insanity being imposed on the nation.

Let's start with this one from Jonah Goldberg. After Jonah Goldberg wrote Liberal Fascism, which was great, he didn't get much right after that, well, he finally got something right.

There's a natural human tendency to think that because you can't stand the other guy "or gal" he or she must therefore be your ideological opposite. The Brown Shirts (Nazis) and Red Shirts (Communists) weren't philosophical antipodes, they were Coke and Pepsi fighting for the same slice of the radical market by changing their recipes ever so slightly.

I've written over and over again that fascism and communism are leftist concepts, and are two sides of the same coin.  The only thing "right" about fascism is it's to the right of communism.  But I really like the Coke/Pepsi menu comparison much better as it lends a depth of thought, because it hints at the never ending changes adopted by the left.  Yesterday's leftists sacrosanct thoughts are tomorrow's sacrilege, constantly changing themselves into Angels of Light, all the while being demons of darkness.

Then there's this blather from "From the eminent liberal scholar Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr." Not Right, Not Left, But a Vital Center".    With a lot of history and entirely too much rhetoric, in too long an article, he states everything is too complex, so no simple solutions will work.   Nothing is right and nothing is wrong, so do everything you can to hold to the middle of the road.   And as he said all this to come to the conclusion, don't do anything that means anything, ending with this bit of fuzziness.

The problem of United States policy is to make sure that the Center does hold; and this can be done only by supporting it against all blandishments and all threats, from whatever direction they may come. The best must recover a sense of principle; and, on the basis of principle, they may develop a passionate intensity. We cannot afford to loose the blood-dimmed tide ever again. 
 
The "blood-dimmed tide"?   But here's what all this blather he spewed out really means! Whatever happens, we must never have a moral position we must defend against leftist aggression against the American identity, the American economy, the American culture and the Constitution.   It's the cry of the left to the right.....Please be quiet about our immoral excesses and treason, in order that we may destroy the nation without interference, or will will arrest you as domestic terrorists.  The key?  Never let them have any power or resources that allow them to implement tyranny.
 
One of the finest thinkers in the world today is Thomas Sowell who in 2012 posted this piece, Socialist or Fascist, 
saying:

Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama's point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, without having to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time.
 
That's the beauty of socialism....for socialists.  I means never having to say your sorry, but they're stupidity lingers on, negatively impacting humanity forever.  Thirty years after Jimmy Carter we're still suffering from his incompetence, and the long term consequences of the Obama administration are still with us and I hate to think what the long term unfixable damage Biden is doing.   
 
In this piece, The Concise Encyclopaeda of Economics, Sheldon Richman points out:

As an economic system, fascism is socialism  with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax. In its day (the 1920s and 1930s), fascism was seen as the happy medium between boom-and-bust-prone liberal capitalism, with its alleged class conflict, wasteful competition, and profit-oriented egoism, and revolutionary Marxism, with its violent and socially divisive persecution of the bourgeoisie. Fascism substituted the particularity of nationalism and racialism—“blood and soil”—for the internationalism of both classical liberalism and Marxism.

Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it. (Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. Entrepreneurship was abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions.

 Again from Thomas Sowell, Socialism for the Uninformed noting:

Socialism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that socialism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster.

While throngs of young people are cheering loudly for avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, socialism has turned oil-rich Venezuela into a place where there are shortages of everything from toilet paper to beer, where electricity keeps shutting down, and where there are long lines of people hoping to get food, people complaining that they cannot feed their families.

With national income going down, and prices going up under triple-digit inflation in Venezuela, these complaints are by no means frivolous. But it is doubtful if the young people cheering for Bernie Sanders have even heard of such things, whether in Venezuela or in other countries around the world that have turned their economies over to politicians and bureaucrats to run.

Then there's this piece, which is long and tedious, but it defines the THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM.  As you review these definitions ask yourself.....where are we in relationship with this?  Here's my thought.

DANGER, DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
