☕️ THREE PIVOTS ☙ Saturday, September 16, 2023 ☙ C&C NEWS 🦠
Governor Lujan pivots on gun bans (and flees); Dr. McCullough gives terrific talk at EU; the generals may have gotten us all killed; NASA pivots, names director; media savages Biden; air crisis; more.
Good morning C&C, it’s Saturday! Welcome to the Weekend Edition. Today’s roundup includes: New Mexico’s brave Governor pivots on gun ban order and runs for literally as far away as she can get; Dr. McCullough brings us up to date at an EU breakout panel; US lacks hypersonic weapons due to massive incompetence; NASA pivots and names its UFO director after all; media undermines President Robert L. Peters for some reason; crisis in staffing air traffic controllers and pilots; a great local win; and a fun clip to show how far the Overton window on jabs has moved.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 “When danger reared its ugly head, He bravely turned his tail and fled. Brave Sir Robin ran away.” — Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Yesterday, New Mexico’s Piñon Post ran a story headlined, “Amid lawsuits and impeachment calls, Lujan Grisham leaving for Taiwan trip.”
She’s literally running as far away as she can get.
Because what the freedom-loving Taiwanese need the most right now as the communist Chinese are closing in on them is some useless advice from disgraced, anti-Constitutional Governor Michelle Lujan. And on the other hand, what New Mexico really needs right now is some kind of state-level “trade agreement” with Taiwan.
Yesterday morning, five days after it started, the Governor gave up on her awesome plan to end the scourge of private gun ownership. She held a press conference announcing she was “modifying” the now-enjoined gun ban, by limiting its scope to only playgrounds and public parks. For the next 30 days.
Michelle did not explain how her new order would accomplish anything except frustrate the pending lawsuits.
In my recent battles, I have learned that a go-to strategy for local governments responding to a lawsuit is to tweak the unconstitutional ordinance a little by amending it, and then argue the lawsuit is moot, since it was based on a different, now obsolete law. But rarely, when it looks really bad, they just give up, throw in the towel, and reverse course.
It looks like that’s just what Governor Grisham did. She threw in the dictatorial towel, hanging on to a tiny scrap of her gun ban to save face.
🔥 Dr. Peter McCullough is the most, if not one of the most important doctors in the long, difficult pandemic pushback effort. His extended chain of impeccable credentials — many now stripped away — and his clear, credible, precise, and persuasive speaking style make him an extremely effective advocate for early covid treatment and against the jabs.
Peter is a hero in the full modern sense of the word. He has freely sacrificed much for many, for millions of people he does not even know.
The doc gave a terrific speech last week, and it’s well worth a watch if you have 17 minutes or so. Otherwise, I’ve transcribed a bunch of it, so you can read instead of watching, or watch and skip the transcription, or watch and read. You get the idea.
On Wednesday, Dr. McCullough appeared as a on of nine panelists in a European Union Parliament breakout session on the W.H.O., the pandemic, and the vaccines. In his segment, Dr. McCullough named names, called out individuals like Jerome Powell and Peter Daszak, and encouraged the EU to completely withdraw from the W.H.O., persuasively arguing the international health agency is a sold-out co-conspirator in a harmful bio-pharmaceutical syndicate.
As usual, Dr. McCullough did not mince words. Here’s just a tiny sample of how he characterized the WHO:
“The WHO has played an adverse role from the very beginning, deceiving the world on the origins of SARS-CoV-2… they effectively created an environment of scientific nihilism.”
The longest section of his presentation was about the vaccines. But it was worth it, since Dr. McCullough summarized everything we know for sure — what we can prove — about the horrible jabs and their devastating injuries. First, McCullough described the single biggest problem with the mRNA shot — it’s made of a toxic protein that never goes away:
The vaccines have ravaged the population of the world… the genetic code for the potentially-lethal spike protein part of the virus. It was the worst idea ever to install the genetic code by injection, and allow unbridled production of a potentially lethal protein in the human body for an uncontrolled duration of time.
Everything we’ve learned about the vaccines since they came out is horrifying. There’s not a single study showing that the messenger RNA is broken down. Because it’s pseudo-uridinated. It’s made synthetically. It cannot be broken down. There’s not one study showing it leaves the body.
We now have papers by [Kestroyuda-sp?] who demonstrates the messenger RNA circulating for a month.
That’s as long as they’ve looked!
We have the spike protein — the lethal protein from the vaccines — found in the human body after vaccination, circulating at least for six months, if not longer, and if people take another injection in another six months, that’s another installation, and more circulating, potentially-lethal spike protein.
Next, McCullough organized officially-verified vaccine injuries into four groups, or “domains”: cardiovascular, neurologic, blood clots, and immunologic problems. His list is understandably incomplete. I completely understand why McCullough omitted other emerging domains such as turbo-cancers. The link between turbo cancer and the jabs is not yet sufficiently proven in the literature or recognized by regulatory agencies, and the credibility that has propelled McCullough to speaking at the EU lies in his careful, scientific precision.
Let’s dig in. Here’s Dr. McCullough’s description of the first group of jab injuries: heart attacks.
The spike protein is proven in 3,400 peer-reviewed manuscripts to cause four major domains of disease.
Number one is cardiovascular disease: heart inflammation, or myocarditis. Every regulatory agency agrees the vaccines cause myocarditis.
I’m a cardiologist. When there’s myocarditis, people cannot exert themselves in athletics. It will cause cardiac arrest. And yet, across Europe and across the U.S., sports leagues have been injecting young people who had no medical necessity, no clinical indication, and we have seen a montage of cardiac arrests in young individuals.
I’m telling you — as an expert cardiologist — these cardiac arrest are due to the covid-19 vaccine until proven otherwise. They are.
The cardiovascular domain of damage in the human body from the vaccine is substantial. More than anything we’ve ever seen with cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Next, Dr. McCullough turned to brain damage:
The second domain is neurologic disease. Stroke, both acitic and hemorrhagic, Guillain-Barre syndrome, ascending paralysis, which can lead to death, and which has lead to death, with messenger RNA vaccines. Which is agreed to by all of our regulatory agencies. Small fiber neuropathy, numbness and tingling, ringing in the ears, headaches. These are all common.
Next, Dr. McCullough described group three: the nightmarish, tapeworm-sized types of blood clots that doctors have never squished into before:
Blood clots. Blood clots like we’ve never seen before. The spike protein is the most thrombogenic protein we’ve even seen in human medicine. It’s found IN the blood clots.
The spike protein causes blood clots. Blood clots bigger and more resistant to blood thinners than we’ve ever experienced in human medicine. I have patients with blood clots going on two years now and they are not dissolving with conventional blood thinners due to these vaccines.
We can’t get these [clots] out of the body. [Probably because] we can’t get the messenger RNA or the spike protein out of the body, as it is continually produced.
Finally, Dr. McCullough described the fourth domain of recognized injury: wrecked immune systems:
The fourth and last domain: Immunologic abnormalities. Vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia and multi-system inflammatory disorder are early-acute syndromes, well-described, published, they have their own acronyms, all agreed-to by the agencies.
Let’s pause for a minute to celebrate. Look how far we’ve come in a relatively short period of time. A year ago, there was only one domain of injury the regulatory agencies grudgingly recognized (myocarditis). Now there are four. Next, think about the fact that, at this point, McCullough was presenting at the EU. And nobody is presenting on how successful the shots have been (except possibly at financial conferences, but that’s not what I mean).
We are winning the mind war.
Back to McCullough. Having laid out all these potential types of injuries, and knowing most of his audience was probably jabbed, Dr. McCullough then addressed the elephant in the room: Who’s next?
So, all of you in the room and all of you listening online are asking, Is it me? Is it my family member? Is it my loved one? Who is going to be the next person to drop after the vaccine? We’ve seen cardiac arrests now two years after these shots. Two years.
I’m the senior author on the largest autopsy study ever assembled of death after covid-19 vaccination. Worldwide. We searched the literature, 600 papers, all the clinical findings, we reviewed them with contemporary knowledge, [using] experts in pathology and clinical medicine.
Our conclusion: 73.9% of the deaths after vaccination are due to the vaccine. When it’s suspected myocarditis, it’s 100% of the time that it’s due to the vaccine.
Before I get to the good news, the final bit that I transcribed for you was Dr. McCullough’s warning to the ministers not to believe the latest fake narrative that “long covid” is causing the excess deaths:
The first false narrative was the virus is unassailable, we have to stay in lockdown and be fearful. The second false narrative is take a vaccine, it’s safe and effective. We are now seeing a third false narrative. The third false narrative is: it’s not the vaccine causing these problems, it’s covid.
Don’t fall for the false narrative. The medical literature at this point in time is compelling. The Bradford-Hill criteria for causality have been fulfilled. The vaccines are causing this enormous wave of illness.
At the very end of his segment, right before calling for the covid vaccines to be pulled from the market, and after all that bad news, Dr. McCullough offered something hopeful. He said the studies are showing that somewhere between 4% and 7% of the jab batches account for almost all officially-recognized jab injuries. So, with regard to the recognized domains of injury, there’s a good chance that any particular person got a safe batch with no reported injuries at all (about a third) or even more likely, a batch with only very rare injuries (all the rest).
We are grateful to Dr. McCullough and all the selfless and heroic work he’s done over the last few years.
🚀 The Wall Street Journal ran a long-form story yesterday headlined, “Hypersonic Missiles Are Game-Changers, and America Doesn’t Have Them.” The sub-headline glumly explained, “The U.S. military is pouring resources into the superfast weapons but has struggled to develop them. China and Russia are far ahead.”
China’s and Russia’s hypersonic missiles can attack enemies with extreme speed, up to five times the speed of sound, and can travel around the world in an hour. They make most air defenses obsolete. They can carry conventional explosives or nuclear warheads. Both China and Russia have them ready to use. But the U.S. doesn’t.
To say the super-fast missiles are ‘game changers’ is to understate the case. For example, they are aircraft carrier destroyers. The Journal admitted, “Even the most advanced U.S. warship in the South China Sea could be defenseless against a hypersonic attack.” The weapons appear to make the aircraft carrier obsolete, ending a generation of naval strategy leaving nothing obvious in its place.
How did this happen? How did we get so far behind?
It’s not like we haven’t known about the problem. The article reported that the U.S. has been working on hypersonic planes and weapons for 60 years, spending billions of dollars across dozens of programs. All the programs failed or were canceled.
If you sift through all the various distracting excuses, what you find at the bottom is that for decades the American military has been laser-focused on small-scale engagements in its endless (but very profitable) “War on Terror,” which is mainly about small-arms fighting with armed insurgents in urban settings, using small teams of soldiers going house-to-house.
Unfortunately, meanwhile the government took U.S. nuclear superiority for granted as a complete answer to nation-level conflict, and failed to pursue developments in large-scale warfare tools and tactics. And now, our missile defense systems are more or less completely vulnerable to hypersonic weapons — which again, we’ve known about for sixty years.
It’s incompetence on a breathtaking scale, even for the Biden Administration. These morons could have killed us all. Think of the dumbest thing a husband has ever done, even worse than forgetting he put the baby in the pickup truck’s bed for a second, and then driving off, then multiply that idiotic moment times a hundred. A thousand. A million.
Now you’re getting close.
Obviously, the Pentagon is racing to catch up, throwing money around faster than Hunter Biden at a Ukrainian strip club. If that’s possible. If you’re a military wonk, read the whole article.
Lord, save us from the experts.
👽 Yesterday, I reported that NASA had created a new UFO director position but it wasn’t clear if they’d hired anyone yet. It turns out the reason it wasn’t clear was that NASA originally refused to say. The space agency claimed, without evidence, that it had received “death threats” and so it wanted to keep the its new director’s identity a secret — for his own safety.
That makes very little sense. If his identity was kept a secret, then … how did the bad actors know who to send the death threats to? Were the threats sent to NASA generally? Taped on the launch pad? Was it a boiled rabbit? Who got the the threats? Where’d they come from? What exactly did the death threats say? Did NASA report the threats to the police? The FBI? Who?
None of those questions have been answered.
Instead, after receiving a rash of FOIA requests, late Thursday evening NASA backtracked and grudgingly named Mark McInerney as its new UAP Director. Coincidentally, McInerney was previously NASA’s liaison to the Pentagon, which is the other agency working on UFOs.
So maybe the truth is, NASA didn’t want us to know it was a military operation. Another one.
At least McInerney is not decorated with Satanic tattoos or wearing Fall leather-festival attire. That we know of. Yet.
A Politico article that published the story yesterday offered at another reason NASA tried to keep it a secret: working on UFOs is embarrassing and not particularly a career-enhancement:
Several members of [NASA’s UAP study group] were ridiculed on social media, received hate mail and said their colleagues were “warned” to stay away from researching such topics because it could damage their scientific credibility and potential for promotions, according to the report.
The story about McInerney’s appointment splashed all across Establishment Media, which says something about the media’s interest in telling us about UFO’s. The wide-scale coverage of the “embarrassing” topic that makes people so mad was ironic. But the most ironic line of all appeared in Fortune’s article:
The panel nevertheless said NASA would remain transparent about what it finds in the skies.
Hahaha! Right after trying to keep secret the identity of its UAP director NASA bragged about how ’transparent’ it plans to be. Refer back to “massive incompetence” described in the previous post.
The federal government uses a definition of “transparency” with which I am unfamiliar.
🔥 The week saw what looked a whole lot like a relentless stealth dump-Biden campaign in Establishment Media:
Look, media, you guys don’t have to tell us. We get it, believe us.
This narrative psyop is obviously aimed at democrat voters.
Over the last two weeks, the media has been uncharacteristically hard on wandering President Peters, running headlines critical of “Bidenomics,” questioning Biden’s mental fitness to serve a second term, and reporting multiple polls showing voters find the sleepy former Vice-President to be deeply unpopular.
Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin Newsom seems to be running a stealthy shadow campaign for the democrat nomination. He’s been stumping in multiple battleground states, building his national profile through a media blitz, and giving interviews this week that seem remarkably candidate-like. Back in November, Newsom challenged Republican presidential candidate Governor DeSantis to a debate on Fox News.
According to several reports, Newsom’s efforts have irritated Biden and Harris advisors, and Newsom was recently politically forced to endorse both Biden and Harris. There appears to be a lot going on inside the tents in the democrat camp.
Gavin Newsom is a deeply-flawed candidate, but I won’t get into those details until and unless he becomes the democrat nominee. There’s no reason to help him get ready.
🛩️ This will shock you, but last week Salon ran a story headlined, “Thanks to staffing troubles at the FAA, an aviation catastrophe is just waiting to happen.”
The gist is there is a sudden and unexpected nationwide shortage of at least 3,000 air traffic controllers (ATC). Salon blamed Ronald Reagan (I am not kidding), but the truth seems to be much more difficult for the narrative.
The Government Accountability Office recently reported that the FAA has acknowledged the controller shortage, but has no serious plans to fix the problem. And even if the government does act to repair the shortages, the time required to bring on 3,000 new controllers is likely six or more years, thanks to a three-year training and certification pipeline and annual recruiting goals hitting only 1,500.
Of course, they’re mainly only hiring diverse candidates, which reduces the potential candidate pool a bit.
The New York Times found that none (99%) of U.S.’s 313 air traffic control facilities have enough certified controllers to meet basic safety standards. And the problem seems to be getting worse. Warnings of what could happen range from widespread flight delays or cancellations to crashes and multiple-plane disasters. A New York Times article from August was headlined, “Airline Close Calls Happen Far More Often Than Previously Known.”
Imagine that. All of a sudden.
Unsurprisingly, the Times’ article came to the same conclusion, it’s a staffing shortage: “the most acute challenge, The Times found, is that the nation’s air traffic control facilities are chronically understaffed.” In a confidential safety report from last year that the Times reviewed, one controller advised the F.A.A., “The staffing shortage is beyond unsustainable. It has now moved into a phase of JUST PLAIN DANGEROUS.”
Coincidentally, along with the shortage of air traffic controllers, there is also a pilot shortage. The Senate is currently debating how many flight hours are required to quality as a new pilot, which is holding up the FAA’s reauthorization in the Senate.
What I found when I drilled into the fog of manufactured confusion over the causes, which the various papers claim goes back years and years (such as Salon’s dumb excuse that Ronald Reagan did it), even though we never heard about the problem until now, bottom line is there seems to have been a huge shedding of airline controllers and pilots over the last two years.
For some reason.
Some sources attributed shrinking staff to record numbers of retirements, suggesting it was just “bad luck” and demographics that all these professionals were all retirement aged at the same time and coincidentally chose to retire during the last 24 months. What remains universally unsaid is what we all know: there is a perfectly obvious reason that a lot of pilots and controllers took early retirement over the last couple years: because they refused to comply with the jab mandates. Buh bye.
Thanks, experts! Gosh, those experts have managed to do a lot of damage, haven’t they? We’re still finding out how much.
What is unknown, but intriguing, is how many more pilots and controllers have been lost due to sudden and unexpected medical reasons. Both jobs often cause bolts of adrenaline, which is a bad indication for subclinical myocarditis. And pilots and controllers are a very small but critical community. Even losing a few to medical problems could make a big difference.
What will President Peters and his awesome transportation secretary Peter Buttigieg do about it? President Reagan fired all the air traffic controllers and still managed to keep the nation’s air system functioning. I don’t mean to be negative, but I somehow doubt we’ll see anything like that from Mr. Buttigeig.
🔥 In a terrific example of a local win, the Texas Scorecard ran an uplifting story yesterday headlined, “Leander School District Walks Back Rejection of Pocket Constitutions for Students.”
It started when a local chapter of Citizens Defending Freedom (CDF) got 17,000 pocket constitutions from a pro-Constitution charity, planning to hand them out for free at middle schools throughout Williamson County in Texas.
But the Leander school district rejected the donation. No constitutions.
Worse, school officials offered a grotesque explanation: “The materials contain advertisements that would prevent the District from maintaining a position of neutrality on political or religious issues or would create an appearance of favoritism.”
So CDF’s lawyer fired back, in a letter citing the First Amendment plus the fact it was Texas’s “Freedom Week” under the state education code, and further pointing out that September 17th is Constitution Day.
After local media got involved, Leander ISD pivoted, issuing a statement reversing its anti-constitution decision, citing “internal confusion and misapplication of district policy.” While officials didn’t exactly embrace the pocket constitutions, at least they are now allowing CDF to make the pocket-sized founding documents available to middle school students.
Think about this: When the pandemic started we didn’t have nearly as many counter-revolutionary local groups like CDF, Moms for Liberty, and so forth. Progress, and lots of it.
🔥 Finally, there are signs the jab narrative is unraveling faster now. In this great clip, Aaron Rodgers pushes back against criticism from Keith Olbermann. Olbermann joked that Aaron got injured because he was unjabbed, channeling that the magic jab is a cureall or something.
So Aaron Rogers said, “yeah, get your fifth booster, Keith! Bum.”
The Overton window has moved a lot if celebrities now feel secure in making jokes hinting at jab problems on live TV. Enjoy!
Have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Sunday tomorrow. C&C will be back on Monday morning at the usual time to help kick off another great week with fun optimism (and just a little sarcasm).
Consider joining with C&C to help move the nation’s needle and change minds. I could use your help getting the truth out and spreading optimism and hope, if you can: https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/-learn-how-to-get-involved-
