Provinces with populations in the millions being ‘crippled’ by a few hundred people in the ICU raises extremely disturbing questions. Not long ago, Jason Kenney said vaccine passports were illegal. Of course, we now know that Kenney has introduced a vaccine passport in Alberta. He’s calling it the ‘restriction exemption program,’ as if that Orwellian phrase will somehow trick people into not seeing that it’s a vaccine passport. How could it have been illegal before, but not illegal now? Did the laws change? Was new legislation passed? Of course not. Turns out, politicians can make it up as they go along, with the ‘laws’ and our ‘rights’ being nothing but putty in their hands to be manipulated and contorted into whatever shape they desire. Why the reversal from Kenney? Why such a humiliating and likely career-ending climb-down for him? Well, the ostensible reason is ICU capacity in the province, the same reason that has been used to ‘justify’ these draconian restrictions all through the pandemic. […] In a province of nearly 4.4 million people, we are expected to believe that 218 people in the ICU is about to cripple and collapse the system?

The packed Liberal rally in Brampton on Tuesday night was an example of Justin Trudeau’s entitlement and privilege on full display, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole said Wednesday. If you haven’t seen the photos, Trudeau’s Liberals packed more than 400 people into a banquet hall with no social distancing or attempts at it. All the while, Trudeau campaigned as the leader of the only party that could end the COVID-19 pandemic. “That’s Justin Trudeau, a man who lectures you about the rules he isn’t willing to follow himself,” O’Toole said. This was the second time Trudeau has held an event in violation of Ontario’s COVID-19 regulations while claiming to follow them. The first time was two weeks ago in Mississauga when he packed a small restaurant. “If you want to end this pandemic for good, go out and vote Liberal!” Trudeau called out to the crowd packed in around him. Trudeau has criticized the work of conservative premiers across the country in handling the pandemic but when in Ontario, he doesn’t even follow the rules set out by one of those premiers — all while telling voters that a Liberal government is key to ending COVID.
Anywhere between 20 and 60 new or “novel” drugs are introduced in the United States every year — far more than any other nation. The U.S. pharmaceutical industry is one of the wonders of the technological and scientific world. So why do Democrats want to destroy it? Democrats have been pushing a scheme that involves Medicare “negotiating” with pharma companies to lower at least some drug prices. It wouldn’t be much of a “negotiation.” Medicare can pretty much dictate what it is willing to pay for a drug. The Democrats want to use the “negotiations” to create a trillion-dollar slush fund to finance its other healthcare initiatives. They want to take “savings” (tribute) from the “negotiations” and apply them to an expansion of Medicare and other healthcare programs. As usual, Democrats are far too optimistic in their savings estimates. But it would give Joe Biden cover to pursue other elements in his $3.5 trillion Build Back Better reconciliation bill. Now, three moderate Democrats have made it clear they won’t support the Build Back Better bill if it has the Medicare negotiating scheme in it.
A federal judge has blocked the state of New York from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of healthcare workers sued the state, including the governor, the health department, and others, claiming their constitutional rights were violated. Judge David Hurd in Utica issued the order on Tuesday. Several litigants, including doctors and nurses, claimed their First Amendment rights were violated by a vaccine mandate, which does not allow for religious exemptions. For the last seven weeks, New York radio talk show host Shannon Joy has been rallying the medical community in Rochester and huge groups of health professionals have been marching outside the University of Rochester Medical Center every week, speaking out against what they say is medical tyranny in the form of vaccine mandates. According to the lawsuit, “The plaintiffs herein are medical professionals whose sincere religious beliefs compel them to refuse vaccination with the available COVID-19 vaccines, all of which employ aborted fetus cell lines in their testing, development, or production.”
There are a great many things coming from Biden, Fauci, the CDC, the State Department, the military, the Justice Department, and basically the Deep State that make no sense. From Biden and the Deep State, we are getting executive orders, mandates, guidelines, decisions, policies, and edicts that just do not make any sort of intellectual sense. It is not just a difference of opinion. It is not just different politics or a different point of view. Decisions, guidelines, policies, and proposed laws are coming out of Washington D.C., Biden, and the Deep State that one just can’t figure out in an intellectual, factual, common-sense sort of way. The only way to explain what is coming from the placeholder at the White House and the Deep State elites is that they are just evil. They are doing what they’re doing because they are evil. No other answer makes sense. […] When one analyzes these separate issues, it is obvious that it goes well beyond normal political difference. The only thing that can explain these unexplainable decisions is…? evil. I do wish there was a different answer. But there’s not.
According to a Twitter feed from Leeroy Johnson, a group of MAGA and BLM activists joined together to demonstrate outside the Manhattan home of New York State Assembly member Linda Rosenthal, who is sponsoring a bill to make COVID vaccinations mandatory. Johnson identified himself as an “independent photographer” and says he takes no sides. The suspicion many African-Americans have toward the medical establishment has strong roots in the Tuskegee medical experiment atrocity, in which African Americans were left untreated so disease progress could be studied — in essence dehumanizing them and treating them as lab animals. The largest single demographic group remaining unvaccinated is blacks, raising all kinds of hell with plans to force the jab on everyone, given the Democrats’ fealty to the doctrine of disparate impact, making anything that adversely impacts blacks more than other groups automatically racist. Mandatory vaccination is a gut-level issue for many who resist the pressure. If this film is real, and BLMers are willing to join with MAGA types, it suggests that the Dems’ hold on the black vote may crumble.
