Turns out that Pudding Brain, back when he was VP, mishandled classified documents. The MSM says that this is (D)ifferent and is of no concern. Naturally they say that, because China Joe actually broke the law – he was VP and didn’t have classification authority, unlike Trump who could declassify anything on a whim and didn’t even have to write down that he did so.

But, it doesn’t really matter: the law only applies to us, not to the Democrats. Even if we got an AG at some point willing to enforce the law against Democrats, they’d go before a DC jury which would vote to acquit no matter the facts. This is why I’ve suggested randomly assigning federal cases to different areas of federal jurisdiction…and/or moving most major agencies of the government out of DC. Put Justice in Yuma, AZ. Defense in Boise, ID. Treasury in Mobile, AL. This would also make it a lot harder for lobbyists.

The newest Current Thing is that gas stoves are a threat – and they’ve really worked this thing up. I hadn’t even heard of it until this morning and by the end of the day I was being referred to “studies” that allege NO2 from gas ranges causes a range of health and cognitive issues. They are doing this, of course, to get us all on 100% electricity, eventually controlled by a “smart thermostat” which will be able to ration our power as the Ruling Class sees fit. But, that aside, I’m amazed at the number of people who are acting as if they are convinced of the dangers of natural gas – as if we hadn’t been cooking with natural gas since the 1880’s with no ill effects. Are they really convinced? Are they really that stupid that they’ll set aside a lifetime’s experience and just believe it because the Experts say so? Or is it that they are really that dishonest? In either case, the result is the same: now we have to defend the use of natural gas.

This is how the Left wins: they are always on the offensive and are forever opening up new fronts. Any attack helps the overall push…and they don’t care how stupid the attack is. That it is made is the criteria for success because even if we manage to beat back the assault on gas stoves, it just means we didn’t have time for something else.

Like, for instance, in Minnesota to teach in public school you’ll have to be licensed and to be licensed you’ll have to positively affirm CRT and transitioning kids. The lives of thousands of children in Minnesota are about to sacrificed on the altar of Woke and we’re going to be overt there somewhere, trying to argue against a gas stove ban…

Joe went to a carefully cleaned up section of the border near El Paso for a photo op and a few remarks about how there is nothing wrong. You and I know it was all quite ridiculous but the Independent voters who will decide who wins the next election will just see it on CNN and it’ll be, for most of them, the first bit of border reporting they’ve seen in years and it’ll all look great. Do keep in mind that lying propaganda works. It works very well. Until everything falls apart.

McCarthy and the new GOP House majority are making some base-pleasing early moves but the proof will be in the pudding. What sort of investigations are done? What sort of bills are sent to the Senate. What is done to bills emerging from the Senate. That’s where we’ll find out of McCarthy and the GOPe have leaned any lessons. Fight and we win: it is as simple as that. Roll over and we’ll lose. We’ll know in a few months.

    How long before they ban wood and coal burning stoves? They’ve already managed to shut down the MVP (Mountain Valley Pipeline) which would further help on energy costs and demand.

    Just seen an article recently where they took 800 to hospital in Scotland for hypothermia, because the poor folks can’t afford their electric bills, and surely can’t afford heating fuel oil. I think that was because of Russia cutting off their supply of oil?

    Will congress actually do anything to solve America’s energy problems, the rising costs of food, and everything else in between? I won’t hold my breath.

      They’re already talking about banning gas stoves.

      A commissioner with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is proposing a ban on gas stoves calling them a “hidden hazard”.
      ………………………
      “It’s just a recipe for disaster. It’s another example of government reaching into every facet of our lives, now they’re coming for our stoves,” former U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Neil Chatterjee said on “The Evening Edit” Tuesday. “You got to be kidding me. Let consumers decide. The government should not be telling us how to cook our food.”

      “I genuinely think we have completely lost our minds,” Chef Andrew Gruel also told FOX Business’ Dagen McDowell Tuesday night. “So the idea now is, is that if we want an end – and the end is obviously get rid of gas stoves, get rid of fossil fuels, everything has to be electric, renewable now – they’re going to create as many stories as they can and then try and piece together statistics that really have no connection to at least get the headline that everybody can glom onto.”
      ………………………………..
      The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is planning to act on gas stove appliances as concerns surrounding indoor air pollutants from the appliances continue to rise, according to reports from Bloomberg. Agency commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. told Bloomberg gas stoves are a “hidden hazard” for respiratory and other health issues.

      Yeah, really really really well hidden. So well hidden no one has even heard of it.

      AMERICAN GAS ASSOCIATION FIRES BACK ON POTENTIAL GAS STOVE BAN: ‘NOT SUBSTANTIATED BY SOUND SCIENCE’

      But it’s not just gas stoves.

      New York Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul, during her state of the state address Monday, announced plans to ban gas heating on the construction of new buildings over the next several years.
      ……………………..
      “I’m proposing a plan to end the sale of new fossil powered heating equipment by 2030 by calling for construction of – all new construction needs to be zero emission – starting in 2025 for small buildings and 2028 for large buildings,” Hochul said. “And we’re taking these steps now because climate change remains the greatest threat to our planet but also to our children and our grandchildren.”

      So what is “fossil fuel powered equipment”? Natural gas, of course, LPG (propane), fuel oil and coal. So what does that leave? Sounds like electricity. But how is electricity generated, without using fossil fuels? And is New York going to get new electricity transmission lines in place in two years to carry the higher load required, assuming they can find the electricity in the first place?

        Well, you can’t trust anyone, anymore. Just like I don’t trust McCarthy. I believe he’d cut a back door deal with the Democrats in a heartbeat. I mean you can just tell to look at the guy he’s an insider, a Washington belt RINO. And, I don’t say that to disparage others who support him, or because his own colleague Matt Gaetz doesn’t have the same interests as Speaker McCarthy, I means, that’s all good and well, but I’d much rather seen someone like Jim Jordan or someone other than a RINO to get the speakership. God forbid that Jeffries would have been speaker. I just don’t believe anything will get done in Congress by keeping the same establishment folks in charge all the time. As far as voting goes, it’s a no win situation because the system does not work, you might as well throw a leaf in the river and watch it disappear. You put in all the time and effort to try and get people to see the importance of voting, and people actually show up to the precincts in vast numbers, but what do you have then after all the votes are in?“HOLD IT!! Whom a big batch of ballots we gotta wait on!” Three or four days later the magic number is in, they manufactured enough ballots to put this or that commie over the top. Know full well that their Republican competitor has the majority support. But they can’t allow that, you see.

        So, I place no faith in our voting process. It was wrong the last two elections, and it’ll be wrong on the next one, next years.

        Anyway, enough of me rabble, it looks like someone is trying to make New York a ghost town, am I right?

      • Jeremiah January 11, 2023 / 3:26 pm

        But, here’s the thing, people have got to stop running from the consequences of the politicians rulings in their states, they have to stand up and demand that their politicians do the right thing, or there’s going to be consequences for them. Dire consequences. The politicians work for the people, we don’t work for the politicians. They fear the people, the people don’t fear them. If we demand the freedom to burn fossil fuel, the politician has the agree, and act accordingly. If we demand energy independence, then our representatives have to agree, and we have to demand it, not let the politicians put regulations on domestic energy, but allow companies to mine the resources and allow the people to use those resources, and not charge ridiculous prices for it.

        People need to stop running from state to state like people in communist countries do to escape the disasters of commie governors and senators like Gavin Newsom, and host of others. When you run from the enemy the enemy wins, you see. And people has got to stop that.

    Remember Casper’s passionate defense of the Canadian socialized health care system? How his many many friends in Canada just would not have it any other way because it’s just so darned wonderful?

    Mr Holthoff (husband of a woman who died after waiting for 8 hours for help in a Nova Scotia hospital ER) said the system is “obviously broken” and “we need change” as “I don’t want anybody else to go through this”.

    Elizabeth Smith-McCrossin, a local MLA, wrote a letter to the provincial health minister to demand an “urgent investigation” into the case.

    Alexandra Rose, the provincial co-ordinator for the Nova Scotia Health Coalition, said the situation is scary and the province’s healthcare system is in a “dire situation”.

    “It’s so scary. And we have to wonder, when is the breaking point? Is this the breaking point now that somebody has passed away? It was a senseless death,” she said.

    MSN seems to have inadvertently committed journalism in posting this horrifying story. This poor woman didn’t just “wait” she was lying on the floor in agony after being too weak to sit in a wheelchair, saying she was dying, and the only help she got was security people bringing her blankets and some ice chips.

        Yep – they will (heck, already are) asserting that right wing views are based on mental disorder…eventually the dissident will be classified as insane, locked up and fed drugs…and eventually pressured into “assisted suicide” to end the suffering.

      • Mark Noonan January 11, 2023 / 4:10 pm

        It is mostly about money and a bit about politics. Rely on it, in Canada getting transition surgery probably isn’t a problem because the Trans community is politically favored. That is the politics aspect of it. The money aspect is that there’s a budget for health care and it has to take care of all of it from a bottle of aspirin to how much pay and vacation time the employees get…and when it comes time to deciding where the money goes, you being sick two weeks from now is not on the table when the pie gets sliced: but the employees wanting more pay and time off, is. Furthermore, once you’ve got the settlement of cash on the employees, they make as much money if they see one or twenty patients in a day, so guess how many are going to get seen?

        Murdering via “assisted suicide” is a huge money-saver, but it isn’t the only way. I saw earlier today a story of a poor woman who died in the ER waiting room in Canada – she suffered agonizing pain for hours and nobody even looked at her. It wasn’t her turn…and you will hate to think about it, but they could see she was in pain…and being medical professionals, probably had a good guess as to what her problem likely was…and it was likely a difficult, time consuming (and expensive) problem. So, just keeping filling out the forms, taking your breaks and slow-walk the patients in front and eventually the serious medical problem becomes a simple morgue activity. And, yes, human being will mentally gear themselves for that…it was how people could install crematoriums in Auschwitz…they damned well knew what they were for, but they shifted their mind into, “well, at least I’m getting paid”.

        In the USA, a little bit different. Sure, the insurance companies do have a vested interest in keeping expenditures on treatment low and that does work out to things like bouncing new mothers out of hospitals a couple hours after the kid is pushed out. But there was also a story where the doctors are starting to recommend medication and surgery for obese children. Think about that – a little less junk food and video games and some time outdoors solves the fat kid problem…but where’s the money in that? Same thing with all the advertising we see for medication…rely on it, on any given day there aren’t that many sick or depressed people. But they’ve got drugs which barely work to sell…and so they advertise them and the concept gets into the public mind and so people are primed to ask the doctor for a fix which doesn’t involve any personal responsibility…”I’m depressed, give me a pill!”. And I’m not saying there’s never a need for a pill – carefully used, they can be helpful to people sorting through life’s problems. But the ultimate cure for depression is to get out and do things, be around people and start praying to God on a regular basis. IOW, most modern depression is easily cured by being human…instead of an isolated, TV watching shut-in.

    Code names, cuts for “the big guy” and millions in mysterious foreign transactions would ordinarily send the media into a frenzy. But the Bidens adeptly enlisted the press into suppressing the story. Many in the media became “made men” and women who proved their loyalty. If this is a corruption scandal, there’s little the media can do to spin their own role in concealing it from the public.

    Can you imagine voting against giving life saving treatment to infants??? Well it happened

    These Democrats who voted against saving infant lives, are the same people who support gender transitioning for children. Truly evil. I don’t want to share a country with people like this. They need to be marginalized, shamed, and put down.

      • Amazona January 12, 2023 / 1:25 pm

        But there are some really good Dem arguments against the bill:
        Nadler on the bill to ban killing babies born alive: “The problem with this bill is that it endangers some infants [born alive] by stating that that infant must immediately be brought to the hospital.”

        And Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL): “[The bill] requires immediately taking a struggling baby to a hospital. That hospital could be hours away and could be detrimental to the life of that baby.”

        Yes, Schakowsky is claiming, presumably with a straight face, that she is voting against a bill to protect babies born alive after abortions failed to kill them because an effort to save such a child might “be detrimental to the life of that baby.”

        It’s not just that these ghouls are pretending to have the best interests of these babies at heart, it’s that they know their base will buy their bullshit. What they are saying is that because it might stress an infant already subjected to the atrocities of an attempt on its life to then transport it to a hospital, the abortionist should be allowed to just kill it right then and there.

        One solution would be to allow abattoirs for baby-killing to only be located near hospitals. That would solve that problem.

      Recent revelations surrounding classified documents found in Joe Biden’s private think tank office have not only turned the Mar-a-Lago raid investigation on its head, it also has revived scrutiny of the many ties China has to America’s first family and its effort to use academia to spy in America.

      The classified memos from the Obama administration, disclosed on Monday, were actually found last November inside the offices Biden used at the Penn-Biden Center, a think tank setup by the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania (Penn).

      Long before the documents were found, the Penn-Biden Center was the focus of a watchdog complaint because its parent university had received large sums of money — estimated to be at least $54 million — in the time period around when Biden joined the group. This raised the specter of Chinese donors having helped fund the nearly $1 million in personal pay Biden received from the think tank.

      The center, which was announced in 2017 and opened one year later, was set up the same year that Biden’s son Hunter was creating a joint venture with Chinese officials in a company called CEFC to pursue natural gas deals within the United States which would have benefitted the communist nation.

      There are very powerful people that are not the figure heads running things, for BOTH parties, but especially the democrats, especially now with Biden.

I suspect it’s a combination of a few corrupt billionaires, some corrupt countries, some corrupt agencies, some corrupt businesses, and a small handful of other people. It is my guess, they believe there is till far too much power outside of their control that needs to be diminished or demolished. Part of that effort requires the US to be brought to her knees and in particular, severally restrict or eliminate guns & free speech. This is effort is currently underway and in full swing. Anyone thinking, “if only we could get control of congress, the presidency, the supreme court, then everything will be ok”, does not understand the full scope of just how far we are teetering on the edge of WW III, or at least the collapse of our system of government & freedoms.

        Biden kept classified documents in his Wilmington garage. Conveniently, there isn’t a visitor log available to the public keeping track of who visits, despite all of the time Biden spends there.

        And,,,Katie also says

        Despite denials, Joe Biden worked as a business partner to Hunter Biden, who requested keys be cut for him to a joint office space. Keys were also cut for Gongwen Dong, a Chinese Communist Party representative for a major Chinese energy company.

        In addition to improperly storing classified information in his garage, Joe Biden also had classified documents in the unsecured office space. The documents reportedly contain information about Ukraine, where Hunter Biden made $80,000 per month on the board of notoriously corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

        And….

        A second haul of classified documents belonging to President Biden have been located, a new report revealed Wednesday — two days after the White House admitted secret papers were kept at an office the commander-in-chief used after leaving the Obama administration.

        NBC News reported the new documents were found at a separate location from the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, where an initial tranche of 10 sensitive files — some of them marked “top secret” — were retrieved on Nov. 2, 2022.

        It was not immediately clear when or where the second group of documents were found, when they date from, and what level of classification they have been given.I don’t know if that is the same office where documents were found, but if it was,

        @mirandadevine
        …. Then Joe Biden would have been stashing these classified documents in an office he shared with the capitalist arm of the Chinese Communist Party’s belt and road initiative, backed by CCP intelligence.

        This might be a good time to point out that there are no visitor logs at any of Biden’s homes any time he is there, and that Sonny Boy is a perfect conduit between him and the Chicoms, with no record of any communication.

      I’m guessing “they” don’t want Harris as President either so they’ll have to deal with that first. Though I’m guessing there’s already plan in place. These people set traps that go back months if not years, ready to spring when needed.

      • jdge1 January 12, 2023 / 6:55 pm

        Of course the need to get rid of Harris is also dependent on how much and what kind of dirt they have on her. With Biden there’s no doubt there’s a treasure trove of political dirt, especially for how long he’s been in public office. It’s just that he’s likely too incompetent to understand the ramifications. Therefore, the ability to extract any willingness to give in to the threats diminish. It wouldn’t be surprised if more than 75% of congress and the President & VP and cabinet members, have committed felony crimes or gross ethical wrong doings waiting to be exposed. Once you are seduced to whatever bribe dangled in front of you, then you are bought – forever, or until you are willing to be exposed so as to not continuously succumb to the manipulation.

        Agents of evil are diligently working to generate any upper hand wherever / whenever they can, at whatever price that needs to be paid. My father once used a story to bring home a point;

        Man walks up to a woman and asks if she would have sex with him for 1 million dollars. She enthusiastically accepts. Then has asks if she would for $10, for which she replied with a resounding no. The man then says; “Well, we’ve already determined you can be bought, now we just have to haggle over the price”.

      • Amazona January 12, 2023 / 7:18 pm

        Their problem is, if they get rid of Biden and we get rid of Harris we get a President McCarthy. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress. Thus, in the absence of a majority the candidate would be denied the office. So keeping House Republicans in line could keep the VP office open while Harris is being impeached for inciting riots–which is on video.

        Which takes us back to why Trump should have been named Speaker.

      • jdge1 January 12, 2023 / 7:05 pm

        If they don’t have any readily available dirt they’ll manufacture it like they did with Gen. James Mattis and continuously do with Trump.

    • jdge1 January 12, 2023 / 11:50 pm

      IF they actually use the documents as a reason to indict Biden, then I’m guessing they will have greater ammunition to use the same effort to indict Trump. It won’t matter to many democrats that Biden is gone as he’s a burden to them, but it will get Trump out of the picture which they’ll see as a big victory.

    New headline: “Liz Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, hospitalized after cardiac arrest”

    Just other day a young man was going to class and dropped over dead cardiac arrest. And he was a star athlete on their team.

    Now, people has got to be in denial that says there’s nothing wrong with these here vaccines.

    The heads of these pharmacology institutions need to pay all this death they’ve foisted on the people.

    • Amazona January 12, 2023 / 8:35 pm

        1.) Many doctors, especially cardiologist, have reported seeing a significant increase in myocarditis cases. Previous to 2021 they might see 1 or 2 a year, often less, now they’re seeing several every month.

        2.) Life insurance companies, particularly those who insure younger clients in the working world, have seen significant increases in death payouts, many related to cardio and clotting problems.

        3.) Many funeral home embalmers and their colleagues have reports long rubbery strands of clots NEVER seen before, from a significant number of deceased in their care.

        In most cases, it was determined that these patients / clients / deceased had received at least one jab. Many had received one or more boosters as well. You can cherry pick any data you want but it still won’t hide the fact that all of this is all unprecedented AND can be tied to getting the jab / booster.

        In July, about four to six months after western governments instituted aggressive jab campaigns for the masses, younger populations experienced a dramatic increase in excess deaths. More than 800 athletes have collapsed on the field / court during a game from March 2021 to March 2022. This does not include athletes who experienced death while not playing. The shocking statistic was found the average age of the athletes who suffered cardiac arrest is just 23 years old.

        An investigation of official statistics has found that the number of athletes who have died since the beginning of 2021 has risen exponentially compared to the yearly number of deaths of athletes officially recorded between 1966 and 2004.

        So much so that the monthly average number of deaths between January 2021 and April 2022 is 1,700% higher than the monthly average between 1966 and 2004, and the current trend for 2022 so far shows this could increase to 4,120% if the increased number of deaths continues, with the number of deaths in March 2022 alone 3 times higher than the previous annual average.

    The Biden regimes position re: classified docs is that they are “doing it by the book”! Interesting. I guess by this they mean, they discover the classified docs 6 years later, then waited a couple months to make the finding public and that’s doing it by the book … again YCMTSU.

    California is now allowing illegal immigrants to become police officers lol. What could go wrong???

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has started implementing a new law in the sanctuary state of California that allows recently-arrived border crossers to police American citizens as law enforcement officers with local, county, and state agencies.

    How long before white liberals commit mass suicide so their existence no longer offends minorities? I hope soon.

      Honestly, that is just so the Cartels can get their guys inserted into law enforcement to make sure the bought stay bought and nobody messes with Cartel operations. Don’t overthink this stuff – the massive illegal traffic across the border can only happen with the active cooperation of law enforcement…this is just to seal that deal and protect CA operations even if a GOP President gets serious about border security.

    The following information was obtained from a Dr Mercola article. Sections were copied and pasted here rather than linking to the article as Dr Mercola removes his articles 48 hours after publishing them due to pressures from people who don’t want the public to view them. It seems this information has been known for some time, but this is the first I’ve heard of it. Note: The article suggest Vitamin D, Zinc and Quercetin are highly effective in fighting COVID and many other virus infections. All of these can be bought over-the-counter.

    STORY AT-A-GLANCE
    • Genetic analysis using the Oak Ridge National Lab supercomputer has revealed an interesting new hypothesis — the bradykinin hypothesis — that helps explain the disease progression of COVID-19
    • The bradykinin hypothesis also strengthens the hypothesis that vitamin D plays a really important role in the disease
    • SARS-CoV-2 not only infects cells that naturally have high numbers of ACE2 receptors but also tricks your body into upregulating ACE2 receptors in places where they’re usually expressed at lower levels, such as your lungs
    • SARS-CoV-2 also downregulates your body’s ability to degrade or break down bradykinin, a chemical that helps regulate your blood pressure and is controlled by your renin-angiotensin system
    • The end result is a bradykinin storm, which appears to be the primary cause behind many of COVID-19’s lethal effects, even more so than the cytokine storms associated with the disease
    • The virus also increases production of hyaluronic acid (HLA) in your lungs. HLA has the ability to absorb more than 1,000 times its own weight in fluid, and when it combines with the built-up fluid in the lungs, it forms a thick hydrogel that makes breathing very difficult

    As detailed in previous articles, your ACE2 receptors are the primary gateways of the virus, as the virus’ spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor. As explained by Smith:

    “… COVID-19 infection generally begins when the virus enters the body through ACE2 receptors in the nose … The virus then proceeds through the body, entering cells in other places where ACE2 is also present: the intestines, kidneys, and heart. This likely accounts for at least some of the disease’s cardiac and GI symptoms.

    But once Covid-19 has established itself in the body, things start to get really interesting … The data Summit analyzed shows that COVID-19 isn’t content to simply infect cells that already express lots of ACE2 receptors. Instead, it actively hijacks the body’s own systems, tricking it into upregulating ACE2 receptors in places where they’re usually expressed at low or medium levels, including the lungs.

    In addition to upregulating ACE2 receptors throughout your body, the SARS-CoV-2 virus also downregulates your body’s ability to degrade or break down bradykinin.

    The end result is a bradykinin storm, and according to the researchers, this appears to be an important factor in many of COVID-19’s lethal effects, even more so than the cytokine storms associated with the disease. As bradykinin accumulates, the more serious COVID-19 symptoms appear.

    Mounting clinical data suggest COVID-19 is actually primarily a vascular disease rather than a respiratory one, and runaway bradykinin buildup can help explain this.

    That said, COVID-19 certainly has a respiratory component, and it appears the virus attacks the lungs in more ways than one. For starters, bradykinin increases vascular permeability, essentially causing your blood vessels to leak fluid. In the lungs, this leads to fluid buildup that can trigger inflammation when immune cells also leak out into the lungs.

    But the Summit data also show the virus uses yet another pathway, which raises production of hyaluronic acid (HLA) in your lungs. HLA has the ability to absorb more than 1,000 times its own weight in fluid, and when it combines with the built-up fluid in the lungs, the effect is devastating, as it ends up forming a thick hydrogel that makes breathing near-impossible.

    When this happens — in severe cases — even mechanical ventilation becomes ineffective, as the alveoli in the lungs are simply too clogged with this gel-like substance that prevents oxygen uptake.

    SARS-CoV-2 can also affect heart function, causing arrhythmias and low blood pressure. About 1 in 5 COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalizations have experienced damage to their heart. Your heart has ACE2 receptors, so SARS-CoV-2 has the ability to infect your heart directly. Arrhythmias and low blood pressure can also be the result of a bradykinin storm.

    In some cases, COVID-19 has also been known to trigger neurological symptoms such as dizziness, seizures, delirium and stroke, and this too can be explained by bradykinin buildup.

    At high levels, bradykinin can lead to a breakdown of your blood-brain barrier, thereby allowing harmful compounds to flood your brain. Bradykinin itself also causes blood vessel leakage. Together, these effects can trigger inflammation, brain damage and a variety of neurological symptoms.

    SARS-CoV-2 Mimics ACE Inhibiting Drugs

    Another side effect associated with ACE inhibiting drugs is the loss of smell and taste. This is also an early sign associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection, and it’s a primary symptom of zinc deficiency too.

    Zinc, as explained in “Swiss Protocol for COVID — Quercetin and Zinc,” plays a vital role in immunity as well as in blood clotting, cell division, thyroid health, smell and taste, vision and wound healing, and can effectively inhibit viral replication.

    Your body does not store zinc, and it’s poorly absorbed, which appears to be why the combination of zinc and zinc ionophores such as quercetin and hydroxychloroquine are so effective when taken at first symptoms.

    The Evidence for Vitamin D

    In a November 1, 2020 commentary in the journal Metabolism Clinical and Experimental, JoAnn Manson and Shari Bassuk call for the elimination of vitamin D deficiency to effectively squelch the COVID-19 pandemic, noting that 23.3% of the total U.S. population have insufficient or deficient vitamin D levels, with people of color having disproportionately lower levels than non-Hispanic whites.

    They list several types of studies showing vitamin D deficiency is “an important modifiable risk factor for COVID-19,” including:
    •Laboratory studies that demonstrate how vitamin D helps regulate immune function and the RAS, and modulate inflammatory responses to infection.
    •Ecologic studies showing populations with lower vitamin D levels or lower UVB radiation exposure have higher COVID-19 mortality, and the fact that people identified as being at greatest risk for COVID-19 hospitalization and death (people of color, the elderly, nursing home residents and those with comorbidities such as obesity, vascular conditions and chronic kidney disease) also have a higher risk of vitamin D deficiency.

    A pilot randomized clinical study published online August 29, 2020, found hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Spain who were given supplemental vitamin D (calcifediol) in addition to standard of care — which included the use of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin — had significantly lower intensive care unit admissions.

    Patients in the vitamin D arm received 532 micrograms of calcifediol on the day of admission (equivalent to 106,400 IUs of vitamin D) followed by 266 mcg on Days 3 and 7 (equivalent to 53,200 IUs). After that, they received 266 mcg once a week until discharge, ICU admission or death.

    Of those receiving calcifediol, only 2% required ICU admission, compared to 50% of those who did not get calcifediol. None of those given vitamin D supplementation died, and all were discharged without complications.

    The odds are slim to none, but wouldn’t it be hilarious if, just like the GOP did with Nixon in 1974, the Democrats would go to Biden and say, “you need to resign or your impeachment is imminent.”

    • Amazona January 13, 2023 / 8:43 pm

      I’m thinking we should really shake up the Dems by immediately starting impeachment against Harris. I don’t know if there is a time limit between a guilty finding and voting for removal but a guilty finding just sitting there waiting to be acted on might push the Dems into pushing her under the bus so they would have time to get a new VP in place.

      Who would have to be approved by the House, of course.

    • Mark Noonan January 13, 2023 / 11:12 pm

      LOL – but, yeah; very unlikely. OTOH, there are theories that China Joe is being under-bussed. It would make sense – he’s way too old, is barely functional and the House GOP really has nothing to fill the time with except investigating him and picking fights over policy. Meanwhile, waiting in the wings is Gavin Newsom – and he will be formidable. He looks and sounds good on TV and he’s completely ruthless and dishonest. The MSM will be ordered to swoon over him. Honestly, I think the wire-pullers would prefer Buttigieg because he’s way more stupid and pliable, plus gay with kids. But he’s proving such a monumental failure at the federal level that they might figure it’ll be hard to sell him in time for 2024. Meanwhile, they’ll talk up California as if its a glorious success story – all video taken in the swanky beach communities and nobody to notice the sh**-filled streets of San Francisco and LA.

      • Amazona January 15, 2023 / 10:43 am

        I think Newsome might look and sound good to the hard-core, but he will have to carry the baggage of a wrecked state on his back if he runs for the presidency. The fiasco of trying to ban gas-powered vehicles ought to be enough to sink him even without the utter stupidity of making this claim hours before admitting that there was not enough electricity in the state to charge the electric cars he was touting as their replacement.

        His heavy-handed dictator mode of governing might sell in a state run by collectivists who love tyranny in any form (except the alleged tyranny of Trump, forever to remain undefined) but in the Heartland, not so much. And even they might start to wonder at the abuse of power inherent in ruling that a medical doctor is not allowed to practice medicine in any way other than that proscribed by the government, or lose his ability to practice. The very establishment of a government protocol for medical treatment ought to concern people.

        And now letting illegals become cops might be the final nail in a Newsome presidential bid coffin. As you point out, this is to put American law enforcement under the control of foreign criminal cartels—-as if it isn’t already corrupt enough, as if it isn’t already abusive enough, in some settings.

        As for Buttigieg, I can already see a campaign against him: “How far up do you want him to fail? He’s failed as mayor of a small city. He’s failed as head of a small federal agency. How can you even think of giving him a chance to fail at being president of the United States?”
