Quote of the day—Jim Rickards

There is some part of the DNA, I don’t have it but some people do, where they just wake up in the morning and they just want to tell people what to do… You do this, do that, etc.

And there’s no end to it. Even if you agree they will have something else. I’m kinda like, just get on your bike and do what you like. I try to leave people alone.

The point being … something like COVID becomes a platform and a perfect cover and a perfect excuse for the inner neo fascist in people all over the world and those in political positions. And they cannot resist the opportunity to boss people around. And the way you do this, it’s tried and true, you put people in fear. You make people very, very, fearful. You tell them they are going to die if they don’t listen to you.

  1. And my hypothesis is that as people find out the lies we been told over the last year they are going to come out of their shells with tar and feathers.

    First, COVID is spread by aerosol and social distancing and masks do not make you safe. This was known before COVID. The lockdowns only served to give control to the sociopath democrats and as a weapon to beat down conservatives and libertarians.

    Second, the sociopaths have mandated that that if you get COVID your doctor has no approved protocol for treatment. Their only ‘solution’ was a high tech vaccine which is not even a vaccine. Existing medicines are proscribed in large part because they hated Trump.

    • “Because they hated Trump”. And are willing to kill you to get rid of him. A world with fewer deplorable/ useless eaters is a win-win for the communist. Right?
      I’m in full agreement with you on the coming backlash. And with the commies outrages moving as fast as they are. They see it coming also.

      • A world with fewer deplorable/ useless eaters is a win-win for the communist. Right?

        Ironic, isn’t it, that most of the Communists seem to belong to the “less-useful” category? Everyone else is too busy, and needs all the help they can get. Maybe if they spent less time clamoring for genocide, and more time finding a job (basically everyplace is hiring), they would be better off, achieve some self-respect, and wouldn’t need to be Communists any more.

        Trump is gone. How are the country’s problems doing lately?

    • Under the color of law what these sociopaths did was illegal.

      “… we actually deliberately withheld known safe agents from people for the explicit purpose of making sure the development pipeline for these shots was not derailed. We did not know if the pipeline would be derailed by widespread early use of these drugs but we did not try, on purpose, because if even one drug worked that would have been the end of the EUAs — all of them. A demonstration of widespread successful use would prevent the issuance of these EUAs and in fact even after issue such evidence legally requires the withdrawal of said EUA. Under the law an EUA requires that no other effective treatment be known.”

      “Under section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), when the Secretary of HHS declares that an emergency use authorization is appropriate, FDA may authorize unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions caused by CBRN threat agents when certain criteria are met, including there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.”

      “All of these alternative drugs were previously approved for other conditions. There is thus no argument to be made that said drugs were not “approved”; all are approved under regular FDA provisions. None of them are experimental.”

      • Yes. And according to https://www.openvaers.com/ numbers, more than 32% of all fatalities ever reported to VAERS in its decades-long history for all reported adverse vaccine reactions (many routine childhood vaccinations, the 100M+ annual flu vaccines, etc) belong to the various Covid shots in less than 9 months. More than 4,000 of them. Yeah, this one is going to go down in history, and not in a good way. I am NOT, ever, getting that injection, nor are my family.

  2. Reminds me of the quote I saw a while back by a woman in some federal agency who said she was “born to regulate,” it was what she lived for. They have always existed, and they are a pox on humanity. Part of the reason for that is many people want to be told what to do, so as to absolve themselves of responsibility, or the drudgery of thinking for themselves and the worry that comes with it. Many people, perhaps most, are not real good at that whole self-regulation thing.

    • When I was in Aerospace the Department Manager said that she liked controlling costs.

    • “Many people, perhaps most, are not real good at that whole self-regulation thing.” Most Americans are better at managing a budget than Congress. Most Americans are better at not molesting women or children than Biden, Trump, Bill Clinton, or most of the Kennedys. It almost seems like failure at self-regulation motivates people to seek power over others.

  3. “What you got ain’t nothin’ new.”

    Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
    Daniel Webster
    US diplomat, lawyer, orator, & politician (1782 – 1852)

    May be just me, but I’m coming to the conclusion that Webster’s ‘mean to govern well‘ and ‘promise to be good masters’ doesn’t apply to many of these tyrant minded idjits today. That’s just from what I’ve seen lately, what with their venom spewed at their political opposition
