Politics / Is Getting Trump Worth It? . . .
« Last post by redcliffsw on Today at 08:11:41 AM »

Too many people want to blame it all on Trump. How much blame can be put on Trump for the riots, looting and, as Axios estimated, the close to $2 billion in losses from property destruction? What about the murder and shooting of civilians and law enforcement officers? What about the tearing down of monuments, not only those of Confederate generals but of Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Columbus, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and abolitionist Frederick Douglass?

Perhaps the most tragic aspect of today’s division is that much of it is a byproduct of our education system where young people are taught to hate our nation’s founders and founding principles. However, it is these principles, though practiced imperfectly, that have created the freest and richest nation in mankind’s history. The question is if our nation can survive the widespread anti-Trump hate.

Good News from Leslie Stahl of CBS “60 Minutes”

It’s being reported today that Leslie concluded that President Trump does not have a one-size-fits-all, totalitarian socialist central plan for the federal government to micromanage the entire medical care sector even more than it does now with its mountains of monstrous bureaucracy and inefficiency.  This is supposed to be a problem.  As with all ignorant and uneducated pop socialists (aka “the media”), Leslie and her “60 Minute” comrades know nothing at all about the subject, so they shout over and over again, “Where’s your plan?!!  We need a plan, a plan, a plan a PLAN!!!”  It obviously never occurs to them that we all have plans, including doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, patients, and everyone else involed in medical care.  The issue, as F.A. Hayek famously pointed out in The Road to Serfdom, is WHO is to do the planning:  free individuals who must bear responsibility, good or bad, for their actions, or government bureaucrats, politicians, and other political hacks who do not.  The more government “plans” your life the less of a life you have as a free human being and the more you resemble a slave.

Politics / The Latest Democrat Party Extortion Plot
« Last post by redcliffsw on October 25, 2020, 07:34:26 AM »

The Democrat party’s plan to abolish the American oil and gas industry, as declared by Joe Biden in his debate with the president, fits in perfectly with the theme of a great book by the late Fred McChesney entitled Money for Nothing: Politicians, Rent Extraction, and Political Extortion (Harvard University Press, 1997).  The theme of the book is that much of what Congress does is one big extortion racket that in any single year is thousands of orders of magnitude bigger than anything the Mafia has done for its entire existence.  The game is played like this:  1) The government threatens onerous taxes, regulations, nationalization, or abolition, as is the case currently with the Democrats.  Such legislation is referred to on Capital Hill as “juicer bills” or “milker bills” as they juice or milk “campaign contributions” from corporations.  2) The incumbents then sit back and rake in millions from the targeted industry or group of industries.  3.  At some point, after “enough” loot has been extorted, the politicians say, “What were we thinking?!   This has all been one big mistake!  Of course we’re not going to ruin your industry.”  4.  They start all over again a year or two later with other industries.

At least one manufacturer of masks has placed this warning on its boxes of masks;

'Wearing an ear loop mask does not reduce the risk of contracting any disease or infection. User is solely responsible for the selection of appropriate personal protective equipment for the setting and application. Change immediately if contaminated'.

[I would post a picture of the warning but the forum's "insert image' button does not recognize a picture on my computer desktop or clipboard. The warning is not a quick little stick-on label. It is printed on the box.]

[So the corporate attorneys of mask manufacturers have warned their companies that they would be liable for government claims that the masks prevent viral transfer, without a disclaimer. And so, manufacturers are now disclaiming what public health officials have been saying.]

[More and more people, world-wide, are getting this. It is time to publicly question public officials like 'our' Governor and the Mayor of Wichita. It is time to remove them from office. It is time to hold public officials criminally responsible for their lies.]

Politics / The Takeaway Of Medical Opinion From The World Doctor's Alliance
« Last post by Wake-up! on October 21, 2020, 10:10:45 AM »
The Takeaway: It’s been quite intriguing to see so many scientists and doctors completely oppose the recommendations and claims made by the World Health Organization (WHO) since the beginning of this pandemic. What’s even more shocking for lots of people is the fact that many scientists and doctors have been completely censored for sharing their research and opinion regarding anything to do with COVID if it opposes the information and recommendations set out by the WHO.

Politics / Koch Foundation Funded . . .

Koch Foundation Funded the Bogus, Dishonest, Thoroughly-Discredited Imperial College Study . . .

. . . that was used to “justify” the worldwide lockdowns, including in the U.S. by the U.S. government.  The lockdowns are being used to “justify” what wealthy European socialists are calling a “great reset,” a eupemism for the abolition of economic freedom in favor of worldwide central planning of the Soviet variety (with themselves in control).  Now, Koch-Funded Tyler Cowen (possibly the biggest recipient of Koch grants of any scholar) is trashing the Great Barrington Declaration by hundreds of epidemiologists all around the world that criticizes the lockdowns.  Cowen goes full totalitarian in his Bloomberg article in which he warns against “dangerous” libertarianism.

Does Charles Koch think Biden is going to win?  Is his boy Cowen angling for a job in the Biden administration or at least a seat at one of the Biden Great Reset committees?

Here is a 30-minute audio on the opinion of a rural Montanan.

Sheriff, if you glance at this forum, give this a listen. If BLM and Anitfa come to Elk County, will you let them destroy property like Trump and Governors are doing nationally? Or will you take action? How are you going to serve the County residents if this comes to pass?
