Where was the call for peace from President Trump?
Yesterday was epic and historic and not in a good way. Bedlam broke out and the media was calling on the President to calm his supporters down. Yet, no response was given. At least, that was the impression I had from mainstream media. However, a call for peace was made at the time. It was suppressed and, in some cases, prevented from being spread. Case in point, check out the tweet below (and the timestamp).
And just in case it disappears, this is what was said.
“I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order, we have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time.”
(I bet you $20 Twitter takes it down. Any takers? Oh wait. They already did.) No matter your political affiliation, you have to admit censoring that tweet was wrong. It irks me.
Maybe it wasn’t as bad as they told us.
The Visual Capitalist put together an infographic on how many people die on a daily basis. Its quite illuminating to see how Covid-19 deaths compared to things like heart attacks, cancers and road injuries. It really puts things in perspective. Read: How Many People Die Each Day? And for extra points, read how the CDC reported 26.3% less death in 2020 than in 2018 and sort through the numbers for yourself.
Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran… (Or were they singing Barbara Ann?)
Iran has resumed the production of 20% enriched uranium at its underground nuclear facility in Fordow, an Iranian government spokesman said Monday. Iranian state media later reported that authorities had seized a South Korean-flagged tanker and arrested its crew, alleging “oil pollution” in the Persian Gulf. But hey, I’m sure that’s nothing to be worried about.
I’m ready for my tinfoil now.
About a million Trump supporters attended a rally in DC that was peaceful until it wasn’t. In some cases, hypocrisy was on display and in others, a very relevant question. Trump supporters are very pro law and order, supporting the police loudly and proudly. So, why then this sudden divergence into hard radical territory? Newsmax pushed a theory that it was actually Antifa and BLM doing a false flag. Sound crazy? Maybe yes, maybe no. Social media is already proliferating with diverse accounts on this very thing and they come across as highly credible.
I don’t trust the mainstream media. I’m not the only one.
At a time when Americans are relying heavily on the media for information about the coronavirus pandemic, the presidential election and other momentous events, the public remains largely distrustful of the mass media. Four in 10 U.S. adults say they have “a great deal” (9%) or “a fair amount” (31%) of trust and confidence in the media to report the news “fully, accurately, and fairly,” while six in 10 have “not very much” trust (27%) or “none at all” (33%).

Do as I say, I wear a lab coat.
Check out this quote…
If you thought you’d never see a time come in America where people wouldn’t be allowed to travel unless they were vaccinated against a virus that may not even be around in a year, think again.
That day has come.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with authoritarians in mostly Democrat-run states, are now essentially putting the vaccine industry in control over who will get to fly in the very near future and who will get denied, the U.S. Constitution’s ‘right to travel’ guarantee be damned.
This is curious to me on so many levels. As of January 3, 2021, you can’t pay health care workers to take the Covid-19 vaccine. Why? Maybe its because they heard about the hundreds of Israelis who were infected with Covid after receiving the vaccine? Or, maybe it was the disappearing Flu? (Flu, Covid, tomatoe, tomottoe) I doubt it had something to do with racism. Umm… Unless you live in New York and dealing with a lockdown, which won’t work anyway; no matter how much you mandate them. Sigh.
Okay, I’m checking Facebook in a few minutes. Just in case.
This one from the Twin Cities Pioneer Press:
A Williston, N.D., man is accused of kicking in the front door of a house after his ex-coworker did not reply to his Facebook friend request…Police say Burczyk started sending aggressive Facebook messages to his ex-coworker on Dec. 24, according to an affidavit of probable cause. He threatened his ex-coworker’s life and warned him that he was going to “come at” him if he did not accept his Facebook friend request, the affidavit stated.
“Accept my friend request or I’m going to murder you,” Burczyk wrote in a message to his ex-coworker, according to the affidavit.
Umm.. Don’t take this personally dude but, if this is how you roll I wouldn’t accept your friend request either.
