don’t say no, but hell no!
Excellent article on why we must resist now.
While New York has been in the news regarding the DOJ dropping the investigation into Nursing Homes Covid deaths, little time has been given to the other democrat controlled states who also had the bright idea of putting COVID positive patients there as well. New York and Michigan got the good news last week that they were off the DOJ hook, and now we hear that Pennsylvania too got the news. Across the country, tens of thousands of COVID-19 patients were accepted by nursing homes, more than 250,000 in the 12 months through March 1, according to federal data.In Pennsylvania, about 65% of coronavirus deaths were nursing-home residents, and in counties in the hardest hit southeastern part of the state, long-term care residents account for as much as 80% of county deaths. New Jersey had 3,200 residents of long-term care homes die due to complications from the virus, about 40% of the statewide total. About 58% of the deaths in Delaware lived in nursing homes, and 46% of the fatalities in Maryland were at nursing homes, prompting Gov. Larry Hogan to order residents and staff members at nursing homes be tested for coronavirus.
I have an idea of one good reason why the investigation was dropped.
Let’s connect a few dots:
Enter Dr. Rachael Levine, former Pennsylvania Secretary of Health. She/he is particularly loathsome. Not only did she send sick patients into nursing homes, just as the news broke in March, she moved her mother out of one and into a hotel. Think that was bad? She got rewarded by joining Biden’s administration. Now she could protect herself and her fellow Democrat States by keeping an eye on the investigation if there were to be one. Better yet, protect herself and others in her position. Her job now?Joe Biden’s assistant secretary of health.
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Justice Department told Gov. Tom Wolf’s office on Thursday that it has decided not to open an investigation into whether Pennsylvania violated federal law by ordering nursing homes to accept residents who had been treated for COVID-19 in a hospital.
Let’s take a look at how absurd this whole thing is.
Pennsylvania Health Secretary Moves Mother to Hotel – Tom Wolf, Rachel Levine Hypocrites?
Pennsylvania made nursing homes accept COVID-19 patients, but health secretary’s mom was moved to hotel. Even as coronavirus patients were being funneled into state nursing homes, the state’s Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine, removed her mother from one of those facilities, lodging her instead in a hotel. She claims it was “personal care” – either way, it was “congregate living” no matter what she pleads.
Levine will become the first openly transgender federal official if confirmed by the Senate.
“Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond,” Biden said in a statement on her nomination. “She is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.”
May 18, 2020 — bunkerville
The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.
It gets even better this week. Not content that Nursing homes and hospitals are up to their eyeballs taking care of sick patients, she will have them go through all of the medical records and try and figure out if they are LGBTQ … add how many additional letters you need. Go figure. Priorities my dear… will some one tell her/him? For what purpose Dr. Levine? How happy should the LGBT community be that she is having people tracing their contacts? Going through their medical records?
Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) office this week announced that the state’s health department, under transgender Health Secretary Rachel Levine, is focusing on gender identity and sexual orientation or expression in the state’s collection of coronavirus data.
May 29, 2020
Note what is alleged: On March 29, Pennsylvania joined New York and other northeastern states in “ordering nursing homes to admit medically stable residents infected with the coronavirus,” despite warnings from groups like the American Health Care Association that such “health directives” could “unnecessarily cost more lives.”
These intrepid government officials should have heeded something known as common sense. Who but a fool would move infected COVID-19 patients into nursing homes? What was option two, moving them into Walmarts?
The article continued, “The death toll is devastating, according to interviews with nursing-home officials, patients’ families, health-care advocates, government officials and from an examination of state records … across the Northeast.” And yet, among the plagued northeast, the infection rate in nursing homes is uniquely bad in Pennsylvania.
That possibility is getting major attention across the state. A devastating investigative piece was published in the Bucks County Courier Times (jointly done with reporters from USA Today), a county with a huge number of COVID-19 cases (the vast majority of Pennsylvania’s cases are in eastern counties close to New York and New Jersey). Titled, “States ordered nursing homes to take COVID-19 residents — Thousands Died,” it documents the disproportionate deaths in Pennsylvania nursing homes
The best of the swamp today,
Fauci let Trump get absolutely kicked while the little rat knew everything about how this virus was funded and worked on. When, Oh, When, will the EcoHealth Alliance Clowns and that utter Fraud, Fauci, end up on trial for Crimes Against Humanity?
Daszak is on record for admitting they developed “several killer viruses “
Why is he and his senior associates team not under arrest right now ?
President, Ecohealth Alliance. Disease Ecologist
Why is Fauci anywhere near this file ?
The first $666,442 installment of EcoHealth’s $3.7 million NIH grant was paid in June 2014, with similar annual payments through May 2019 under the “Understanding The Risk Of Bat Coronavirus Emergence”
The date: Let this rest on Fauci.
Four months before the Obama administration suspended federal funding for gain-of-function research on US soil, the process by which virologists manipulate viruses to be more transmissible to humans, a subagency of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci – effectively shifted this research to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) via a grant to nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance, headed by Peter Daszak.
The WIV “had openly participated in gain-of-function research in partnership with U.S. universities and institutions” for years under the leadership of Dr. Shi ‘Batwoman’ Zhengli, according to the Washington Post‘s Josh Rogin.
Now, Daszak is refusing to comply with a months-old document request from House Republicans related to his work at the Wuhan lab, according to Just The News.
As government investigators and journalists dig to uncover the full scope of Daszak’s links to the WIV, Daszak is continuing to spurn a congressional request for that information.
In April, Republicans on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce sent Daszak a letter directing him to submit, among many other documents, “all letters, emails, and other communications between [EcoHealth] and [the WIV] related to terms of agreements, bat coronaviruses, genome or genetic sequencing, SARS-CoV-2, and/or laboratory safety practices” pursuant to key NIH research funding through EcoHealth to the Wuhan lab as a grant sub-recipient.
Yet Daszak himself has not cooperated with the request. An aide with the Energy and Commerce Committee confirmed to Just the News this week that the committee has “received no response still from EcoHealth Alliance and Peter Daszak to the April 16th letter from Leaders Rodgers, Guthrie, and Griffith.” -JTN
Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats aren’t actually interested in getting to the bottom of things – as they themselves hold subpoena power in both chambers. The ultimate authority, as JTN notes, rests with that party – specifically Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone – who notably boosted funding to Fauci’s NIH in 2015 to the tune of $2 billion per year through 2020.
A comment left at Zero Hedge and worth consideration:
“Why a subpoena hasn’t been issued in more than two months is unclear, but we could venture a guess”
Because he’s protected, protected by the military and the CIA.
EcoHealth Alliance is a CIA partner, and it received $39 million funding from the American military besides the funding it gets from Fauci`s NIH and indirectly Gates`s Welcome Foundation.

Glad to see Joe married his intellectual match.
It is funny too, at the same time they try to act like scientists have been studying this stuff for years but also act like this was all so bad because of how unprepared we were. So much of what they say doesn’t add up. None of this has ever made any sense.

Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are cheap drugs who have long lost their patent. They have been around for decades with no known major side effects. Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” takes on the facts once again as to why Anthony Fauci instead of supporting the use of these drugs instead wanted to give billions of dollars for new treatments. It is a scathing rebuke of the the media which has censored the positive reports on the use of these drugs and especially that Dr. Kory’s testimony before congress was banned on Youtube.
It was huge because it discouraged / condemned treating with therapeutic drugs, which would have saved lives. And most of the medical profession failed us miserably by not treating the symptoms.
If you enjoy a good take down, this clip is for you.
Fauci should be in jail. It is suggested that tens of thousands of lives could have been saved with the timely use of these drugs. Especially Ivermectin. Setting aside the argument as to where Covid started, it was well known that these drugs were helpful. Yet WHO, the FDA, the CDC did all they could to stop the use of these drugs.
July 29, 2020:
US President Donald Trump has again defended the use of hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus, contradicting his own public health officials.
He said the malaria medication was only rejected as a Covid-19 treatment because he had recommended its use.
His remarks come after Twitter banned his eldest son for posting a clip promoting hydroxychloroquine.
There is no evidence the drug can fight the virus, and regulators warn it may cause heart problems.
On Wednesday Dr Anthony Fauci, a leading member of the White House coronavirus task force, told the BBC that hydroxychloroquine was not effective against the virus.
“We know that every single good study – and by good study I mean randomised control study in which the data are firm and believable – has shown that hydroxychloroquine is not effective in the treatment of Covid-19,” he said.
The FDA also revoked its emergency-use authorisation for the drug to treat Covid-19. The World Health Organization (WHO) says “there is currently no proof” that it is effective as a treatment or prevents Covid-19.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., and Dr. Pierre Kory, Chief Medical Officer of the FLCCC Alliance, weigh in on ‘Sunday Morning Futures and on the impact of censorship in fight against COVID
We shall see how long this stays up.
A replacement for youtube
“It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion and your recommendations based on the data as it evolves…and that’s the reason why I say people who then criticize me about that are actually criticizing science,” he said.
Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that the recent criticism he faced is “quite frankly” attacks on science.”
“Because all of the things I have spoken about consistently, from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science,” he said. “Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people and there was pushback against me, so if you are trying to, you know, get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science, and anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that.”
The very best of the swamp.
Let’s start out with the smoking gun email that starts with the “how to” with the catchy title “Coronavirus bioweapon production method.” The post will end with MSNBC snagging Fauci for his first interview since the SHTF with the release of his treasure trove. If you thought the media was going to have a curiosity about Fauci think no more. No not like the days of the chattering hyenas who posed as press reporters lying in wait to attack all things Trump. Nope. No questions yesterday at the presser. You almost would think it never happened.
You would have thought this email would have been redacted since so many of Fauci’s emails were but Biden wanted the recipe out there for China anyway now didn’t he? Better yet note it was sent by IPhone.
About the masks:
Why stop there when you can read them all right here.

‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host reacts to Dr. Fauci’s emails exposed. Tucker nails it and worth the ride.
Here is the Nicolle Wallace full interview with Fauci yesterday. Yes, nothing to see, keep moving along folks. This is the how they set it up:
Dr. Anthony Fauci urges all Americans to get their Covid-19 vaccine to stop the spread of potential variants and to allow the country to fully reopen. He also reacts to the publication of his emails during the early months of the coronavirus crisis.
Nope he says, we are not out of the woods. Keep strapping that mask on.

Living in Disneyland
No, I’m not talking about Goofy; he’s living in the White House. I’m speaking about the average Joe, John Q. Citizen, Susie Doe, and everyone else who is not living within the confines of Bunkerville, U.S.A.
Anyone who’s been to Disneyland knows that it’s a fantasy park. There really is no Micky; it’s really someone fighting drug addiction dressed in a costume who spends their day making four-year-old’s pee their pants. That’s what America has become, as well. Masks on — to save lives; Masks off — because masks don’t matter. Covid-19 inoculations — to save lives; steadfast refusal to get a Covid-jab, because after nearly everyone got one, the CDC announced that the vaccine doesn’t prevent Covid infection.
Border walls — because illegal aliens constitute a prohibited assault upon our economy; borders open, because illegals are people, too, even if they pose a significant health risk to everyone in South Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Southern California — and, um, Chicago.
Also, you know all that money Congress set aside for Covid-19 assistance programs? Well, Biden is spending it elsewhere. Why? Because he can, that’s why. How dare you even question it.
Here’s a very clever leftist idea. To prevent a dangerous psychotic from entering a school and shooting students to death, let’s have magic-marker printed signs placed on the palms of all students that read “Don’t” (on the right hand) and “Shoot” (on the left hand). That should do it. Now, of course, with reference to the Parkland shooting in Florida, it was the abject stupidity and cowardice of the School Board and a lily-livered deputy sheriff that let that horrific event happen, but of course, we don’t allow reality in Disneyland.
If we did allow reality, then we’d have to conclude that were it not for Democrats, dangerous psychotics sitting in our publicly funded classrooms would be identified, removed from general populations, and confined in an institution suitable for psychopaths (other than Congress). But no … in Disneyland, we blame the problem on inanimate objects.
We’re also doing a good job keeping refrigerants out of the atmosphere and let’s not forget how grateful the environment is — evidenced by the fact that the recent five-day rainy period has moved on. Overall, most Disneyites believe refrigerant control is a priority over a justice system that gives all of us confidence. Not to worry, though, because in taking the lead from the 2002 Tom Cruise film Minority Report, we can prevent crime by reading the minds of conservatives by borrowing their DNA from Ancestry dot Com and then taking appropriate action, such as placing barbed wire fences all over Washington, traffic barriers, and increased personal security for members of the Congress Mob.
Some other key benefits to living in Disneyland (with a hat tip to Ed Bonderenka) include: putting oil and gas employees out of work so that they can draw state and federal unemployment benefits; reduce energy production so that all Disneyites can pay more for gasoline; an economy designed to increase the cost of goods and services while diminishing the value of the dollar; embracing Critical Race Theory as if it were an undeniable fact, and last (but not least) increasing the cost of admission to Disneyland.
In conclusion, don’t forget the Disneyland Parade. You’re paying for it. It is a small world, after all.

COVI-PASS will determine whether you can go to a restaurant, if you need a medical test, or are due for a talking-to by authorities in a post-COVID world. Consent is voluntary, but enforcement will be compulsory.
The old slippery slope. What possibly could go wrong? Bill Gates has his dream come true.
A British cybersecurity company, in partnership with several tech firms, is rolling out the COVI-PASS in 15 countries across the world; a “digital health passport” that will contain your COVID-19 test history and other “relevant health information.” According to the company website, the passport’s objective is “to safely return to work” and resume “social interactions” by providing authorities with “up-to-date and authenticated health information.”
15 countries, including Italy, Portugal, France, Panama, India, the US, Canada, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, Mexico, United Arab Emirates and The Netherlands, the company reports.
Sold: 50 million digital health passports
A British cyber security company, VST Enterprises has signed a contract with international digital health technology firm Circle Pass Enterprises (CPE), owner of ‘Covi-Pass’, to supply 50 million of its ‘digital health passports’ to 15 countries.
VST was founded by tech entrepreneur Louis-James Davis to integrate its state-of-the-art VCode & VPlatform technologies into the Covi-Pass Digital Health Passport, which will be paired with approved testing kits.
Put simply, the user downloads the app to their smartphone device and uploads his/her key information, such as name, address, age. Their identity is then verified using a biometric fingerprint or facial scan. A COVID-19 test is then carried out by an authorised healthcare professional, nurse or medical doctor. The test is geo-fenced to that location – using GPS, RFID, Wi-Fi or cellular data to set a virtual boundary around a geographical location – and the test results are then scanned from the testing kit into the Covi-Pass Health Passport.
A colour mapping system (green, amber, red) authenticates and provides the COVID-19 test history and relevant health information, so the accurate data metrics can assess those who have tested positive and negative and the location only of their testing. The user can then show the Covi-Pass to authenticate their health status. ‘A traffic light system confirms their health status as either red or green, red for positive and green for negative,’ the company points out. ‘The amber colour indicates a countdown timer to when another test would be due and required.
From Healthcare in Europe
These objectives mirror those that Bill Gates has been promoting since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown. In an essay written by Gates in April, the software geek-cum-philanthropist lays out his support for the draconian measures taken in response to the virus and, like an old-timey mob boss, suggests the solutions to this deliberately imposed problem.
Ironically, Gates begins to make his case for the adoption of mass tracking and surveillance technology in the U.S. by saying that “For now, the United States can follow Germany’s example”; He then touts the advantages of the “voluntary adoption of digital tools” so we can “remember where [we] have been” and can “choose to share it with whoever comes to interview you about your contacts.”

The very best of the swamp.
Adrienne’s corner has an excellent post up and worth a visit.
don’t say no, but hell no!
Excellent article on why we must resist now.
All smoke and mirrors. Keep wearing those rags folks. Here is the report with government word salad. So Dr. Fauci what is the bottom line?
The CDC recommends wearing masks after their study showed that related to COVID, the results of wearing masks were statistically the same as the results when not wearing masks.
During March 1–December 31, 2020, state-issued mask mandates applied in 2,313 (73.6%) of the 3,142 U.S. counties. Mask mandates were associated with a 0.5 percentage point decrease (p = 0.02) in daily COVID-19 case growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.1, 1.5, 1.7, and 1.8 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all) (Table 1) (Figure). Mask mandates were associated with a 0.7 percentage point decrease (p = 0.03) in daily COVID-19 death growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.0, 1.4, 1.6, and 1.9 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all). Daily case and death growth rates before implementation of mask mandates were not statistically different from the reference period.
The results of a CDC study at first appear to show that wearing masks help reduce the spread of COVID:
The results from before wearing masks were not statistically different than the period wearing masks – thus the CDC will continue recommending Americans wear masks???
Flashback to January 21, 2021 with Fauci, full of himself, telling us that science rules.

How can we bankrupt our country? The Democrats sure are working on it with the latest reveal. Everyone will be dying of COVID. Bet the investigation of misrepresented deaths attributed to COVID will now stop. $7000 a death for. burial? Might try cremation.
The economic rescue package just passed by Congress includes financial help to cover funeral expenses for Americans who died ofthis year.
The designates $2 billion to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Disaster Relief Fund to offer financial assistance to “an individual or household to meet disaster-related funeral expenses” incurred through December 31, 2020. The government should cover 100% of the funeral costs, according to the measure.
Uncle Sam often provides support for losses incurred during a major disaster or emergency. The president frees up aid by declaring an emergency. Under the Stafford Act, FEMA can offer help with burial costs if the deaths were caused by a presidentially declared emergency or disaster.
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for FEMA said the agency “has never provided funeral assistance on anything approaching this scale. As such, we are reviewing the legislation and evaluating potential options for implementation.”
More details but you have the drift. by now.
FEMA has yet to launch a platform where individuals can directly apply for funeral-expense reimbursement, a spokesperson told MarketWatch on Tuesday. The agency is currently hiring contract workers to help administer the program.
“We are working to streamline the delivery of this program to make it easier for people who lost loved ones to apply for and receive assistance,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “It’s taking some time to develop the right process and tools to make this program easy, efficient and effective for everyone.”
“While we can’t change the outcome of what has happened, we are honored and dedicated to helping ease some of the financial stress and burden that this terrible virus has created,” the spokesperson said.
That friends is the latest from the swamp.
Fauci flushes with the excitement of his resurrection to be front man for Biden’s covid response.
Science, he says… Science will rule. Let’s take a look at a couple of clips from yesterday’s roll out of Fauci and team.
The last clip has to be the best summary of the infamous 80 year old Dr. Fauci’s various positions taken regarding the “best” Covid policies.
No wonder the Donald got fed up with him and moved on to others and gave up on the daily wisdom of Fauci.
Oh the excitement of being center stage once more. Oh joy!
Let’s do the setup with a couple of clips.
Reporter once again confronts Dr. Fauci with a hard hitting question. Fauci swoons with excitement… after all he takes no pleasure in what he is about to say….
Now the punchline. We discover the emperor is wearing no clothes……of course no reporter will ask him about his movable opinions on the matter and why it no doubt drove Trump nuts and left Trump with the bag. Why Fauci was relegated to the third string in the end. (I can only hope this tweet stays up….here is hoping.)
Looks like Biden and Fauci will be the perfect match. Biden announces with a scowl and proudly indeed that the goal is a million shots of vaccine in arms in a 100 days. Unfortunately Biden’s new Covid savant Fauci failed to tell him that it is about where we are now.
Twitter is ablaze that Biden finally has a plan for distribution.
“Last week, we had two days when we vaccinated one million people a day”
Why is Biden planning to SLOW DOWN vaccination? we were already on track to EXCEED 100 million doses in 100 days. Biden‘s target should be 200 million will Dear Leader media call him on this scam?
