Democrats Test Drive New Talking Point for Permanent Shutdown
Democrat Nevada Governor Sisolak’s COVID-19 task force, a group of Sisolak puppets that perform Covid Decision Theater every week or two in an attempt to ward off rebellion and keep the shutdown heat off Sisolak, voted this morning to postpone the decision to reopen bars in Pahrump for another two-week period.
They’re not even considering reopening Vegas strip clubs, nightclubs, and shows. Just bars. With every other chair removed and mandatory masks. And they still postponed it.
They’re voting on Vegas as well sometime today. But as Pahrump is the next town over from Las Vegas and a much smaller town, there is no chance whatsoever that Las Vegas will be allowed to reopen. And it won’t be any different in two weeks.
I was watching the livestream of the Covid task force meeting on Facebook. Every commenter was hurling unmitigated hatred at Sisolak and his puppets. The citizenry is finally getting wised up to what’s going on. But not enough. Huge swathes of the public still watch this theater thinking things may actually reopen any time now, and that it actually depends on the “data”.
The only question I’ve been mulling is whether we reopen after the election. The Nevada state budget deficit is rapidly approaching 50%. We have an unemployment rate of over 25% and our unemployment compensation fund has run out. And Wall St says the shutdowns have broken the Vegas economic model and at least 40% of our tourist revenue will never return. Half of our jobs are dependent on tourist revenue. It pays 40% of our state tax revenue.
But the Democrat leadership, which is leading an insurrection, doesn’t care about any of that, and Sisolak is their willing puppet. He will keep Las Vegas closed until cows are grazing on the Strip.
Mayor De Blasio of New York City announced Monday that existing shutdowns will continue there until there’s a vaccine (337 restaurants have filed a $2 billion lawsuit against the city and state in response). Governor Newsom of California announced the same thing back in May.
But Trump announced yesterday that the feds will be shipping Covid-19 vaccines to states on November 1. So here is Katie Hill, the disgraced Democrat congresswoman from southern California, test driving the Democrats’ next excuse for keeping the economy shut down in a tweet this morning:
I’m a big fan of vaccines but DAMN I’m skeptical of one that‘s supposed to have been developed, tested, produced, and distributed in 6 months — right in time for the re-election of our very own dictator.
And for you people saying, oh, well, that’s just Katie Hill, that’s not the Democrats, here’s Kamala Harris putting out the exact same talking point, as well as Democrat Rep. Raul Ruiz. Here’s the LA Times putting it out as well as The Atlantic. It’s clearly the new Democrat Bat Plague talking point.
Democrat governors have no intention of lifting the lockdowns in their states after the elections.
The only thing that will change this state of affairs is kicking every last Democrat out of office. The party must be driven into electoral extinction so a sane, healthy opposition party can take its place. That process will start in November, but it will take until 2022 to complete, with a few stragglers to take out in 2024.
The Facts About the Covid-19 Vaccine
Let me be clear about why the vaccine development has been so fast. It’s an mRNA vaccine. Scientists have been experimenting with them since the 1990s. So it’s been known for a while that they work well and can be made safe. But it seems like there’s never been a sufficient financial incentive before to actually carry out expensive large-scale human trial safety studies on one of them.
What the drug companies have been doing for the past six months is the human trial safety studies (this link describes the safety testing well; please ignore CBS’ Bat Plague fear-mongering at the end). They’ve been doing them with volunteers, starting with small groups of a few dozen volunteers, then graduating to mass trials.
Mass human safety studies of tens of thousands of people are going on as I write this all over the world. Many physicians have been test subjects in Phase 3 of the testing. These are the same safety studies they do for any new drug.
We could debate whether Big Pharma safety testing is ever adequate. But if you take other prescriptions, these vaccines have gone through the same safety and effectiveness testing process.
The federal government made this speedy mass testing possible by paying for it. The feds have also paid for the necessary manufacturing capacity to produce vaccines for 300 million people fast. That enabled drug companies to set up manufacturing capability while safety studies were still going on. The feds took on the risk that the safety studies might fail.
Another reason for the speed of development of the Covid-19 vaccine is that it doesn’t require manufacturers to brew up large quantities of virus, which can take from four to six months for a known virus to years for a new virus. It only takes days to cook up a synthetic mRNA vaccine.
That means if the vaccines are found safe, 10s of millions of them can be manufactured within days and delivered to people who want protection from Covid-19. If some or all of them are found unsafe, all the unsafe manufactured vaccines get disposed of and the government bears the loss.
It was a brilliant way to handle emergency development of a new drug for people who want it. In no way did any of the speed come from stinting on human safety studies. It came from the government paying to set up manufacturing capability while the safety studies, also paid for by the government, were still going on.
Normally, manufacturing wouldn’t even be getting set up for another couple of months. And it wouldn’t be setting up to produce at the volume the government is able to pay for.
The government is even paying for the manufacture of syringes and vials, so they’ll be ready in the quantities needed when the vaccine is ready. The government is, again, bearing the risk that Chop Fluey may die out and kill demand for a vaccine before the vaccine can be produced.
The Effectiveness of the Covid-19 Vaccine
The media, including CBS in the link above about the vaccine human testing, is pretending that the Covid-19 vaccine’s effectiveness will be in the 50% area, like a typical flu vaccine.
But they are just pulling that number out of thin air. For one thing, there are no numbers out from studies yet on this specific vaccine. For another thing, this is not a typical vaccine.
A typical vaccine includes a piece of a virus or bacteria, alive or dead, to trigger an immune system reaction in your body. The Covid-19 vaccine puts a very small amount of mRNA in your body to trick your cells into thinking a virus is present and produce antibodies to it. No part of the Covid-19 virus is injected into your body.
There has recently been an outbreak of a vaccine strain of polio in Africa. That kind of breakout is impossible with the Covid-19 vaccine because it doesn’t contain Covid-19.
The effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine is expected to be 90% based on early data. The effectiveness is likely to remain through mutations of the virus as long as the virus is covered by those spikey proteins.
We won’t have official data from the mass human trials until October. Vaccines given for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis are 80% to 90% effective. Again, the flu vaccine is about 40% to 60% effective.
Will I Get the Vaccine?
No, I won’t. In my opinion Bat Plague is a case of propaganda-induced mass hysteria rather than a pandemic. The virus has the death rate of the common cold. And even if I believed that Covid-19 was a serious health threat, I have no risk factors.
In addition, I use Big Pharma health interventions as seldom as possible. I never get flu vaccines. If I want to travel to a country that requires a vaccine, I call off the trip. The last prescription I took was an antibiotic before I had a tooth pulled.
When I’ve had health problems, I solved them with a change in diet. If I actually came down with Bat Plague symptoms, I’ve got a link to an online doctor who will overnight me hydroxychloroquine. I’d take that with zinc for a week.
But if I were a vaxxer, and I were actually concerned about Bat Plague, I’d strongly consider getting this vaccine. I’d look at the numbers when the study results are released in October and make my decision.
To me, the main value of the vaccine is its potential for safely calming a mass public delusion.
In any case, as I’ve been saying for months, the Democrats still won’t lift these shutdowns even after the election or when there’s a vaccine available. The media will blast out the same kind of vaccine disinfo that they blasted out for hydroxychloroquine.
Trump’s October surprise may speed up that process.
It’s confirmed that bars, shows, strip clubs, etc. will not be allowed to reopen in Las Vegas.
Quote from @VitalVegas after Sisolak’s brief press conference: “One takeaway from today’s news conference: Many decisions, affecting millions of people, are being made based upon concerns for Governor Sisolak’s 94-year-old mother.”
The smart thing to do would be to protect her with the hydroxychloroquine plus zinc Covid-19 prophylaxis protocol. I mean, if he hadn’t banned it based on the fake Lancet study that had to be retracted months ago.
