Florida Covid Governor Bans Halloween Masks as Child Abuse

No Vaccination Now. No Vaccination Tomorrow. No Vaccination Ever! (Courtesy of The University of Alabama)

In a stunning move, the Florida Covid Governor threw his hat into the ring as a candidate for president in 2024 on the Republican line. He did so with his heroic channeling of another southern governor by blocking his state from a federal invasion. His words update those of the 1968 presidential candidate:

If you are coming after the rights in Florida, I am standing in your way.

And I can tell you: Florida, we’re a free state. People are going to be free to choose to make their own decisions.

Times have changed. This time the southern governor defying the federal government will not have to run as an independent. Instead he can run as a Republican.

END SOCIALIST SLAVERY

The Florida Covid Governor is campaigning on the standard southern message of ending slavery. He has identified multiple ways in which the socialist slave government deprives individuals of their freedom of choice. And if there is one thing that southern Republicans champion above all else including their right to be packing any weapon anywhere, then it is freedom of choice for each and every individual. The idea of the government making the choice for you is abhorrent. Florida Covid intends to leverage the freedom of choice mantra right straight to the White House in the 2024 election.

The following items have been, are being, or should be removed from the mandatory compulsion list by the government. Henceforth, they are to be considered optional at the discretion of adult individuals who are free to make their own decisions.

Covid masks
Catcher masks
Goalie masks
Football helmets
Surgeon masks
Motorcycle helmets.

People are free to wear such items if they so choose but are under no obligation to do so. The socialist slave state does not rule in Florida.

Other items where freedom to choose trumps all other considerations include:

Seat belts in cars
Child torture contraptions in car backseats which could be considered child abuse
Seat belts in planes over Florida air space
Obtaining a driver’s license
Having automobile insurance
Having automobile inspections
Obeying stop signs, traffic lights, or any other traffic sign
Obeying speed limits
Obeying speed limits by schools
Obeying school bus signs to stop
No drinking and driving
No texting and driving
No left turn on red
No driving through red lights.

As one can see, many of the infringements on our right to be free relate to driving.  People should be free to drive wherever they want at whatever speed they want based on any rules and regulations they want without consideration for anyone else.

Again as a reminder, Florida Covid Governor is not saying that you do not have the freedom to obey these rules and regulations. He simply is saying you have the right not to follow the rules imposed by a socialist slave state. Informed adults can make intelligent decisions about what rules to obey and which ones to ignore. And even if the decision is not an intelligent one, it still is up to each individual to make that decision and not for a socialist slave to make it for you for the supposed “common good.” The “common good” is for free individual choice. The Florida Covid Governor will be asking people to take the pledge to say “No to Socialist Slavery.”

A complete list of removal of socialist slavery rules and actions is not available at this time.  Other actions contemplated at this point are

Elimination the chlorination of water
Elimination of the fluoridation of water
Elimination of the certificate of occupancy.

And where Florida Covid Governor goes, Texas Covid Governor goes too.

JEB BUSH VERSUS RON DEGENERATE

 Times have changed. It is not that long ago when people expected another Clinton-Bush presidential showdown. Think of how different the world would be today if low-energy Bush with his Mexican-American wife had been the standard bearer for the Republican Party. Their son would not have sold his soul and for nothing for one thing.

For another, House frat-boy Matt Gaetz would still be a Bush loyalist. His has no values beyond playing the game of power. In a sense he is like the proverbial canary in the mine. He recognized that Bush was going nowhere and switched to the winning side. Now that he faces his own legal trouble, he aligned with the popular Marjorie Taylor-Airhead (MTA). He knows that MTA has a national audience whom she can rally to his cause in the event he needs help against the justice system.

Florida today is not the Florida of only a few years ago. Times have changed. Instead of a governor leading the charge for vaccination, the Covid Governor is an obstacle to safety.

CAMPAIGN STRATEGY 

 Florda Covid Governor is not a stupid person. He is not a simpleminded immature person with the emotional maturity of a three-year old. He fully recognizes that Trumpicans are the key to his political success at the national level. He knows that Woke Democrats will continue to alienate white people and there is little Joe Biden can do to stop them. He knows that Trumpicans prefer image to substance and have limited reasoning skills. One only has to observe MTA’s performance in Alabama or Pillow Head’s analysis of how the election was stolen to know that there is no limit to what Trumpicans will believe in support of their view of the real world and to oppose Woke Socialism. For the Covid Governor being denounced on CNN pales in importance before being praised on Foxhub.

One should note that Florida Covid is aiming for 2024 and not 2028. No matter what, he will not be the vice-presidential candidate in 2024.  Whoever is that vice-presidential candidate in 2024 will have the inside track to the presidential candidacy in 2028. This analysis is based on the presumption that Republicans will not take back their party no matter what happens in the 2022 and 2024 elections. America’s third civil war will only intensify. Trumpicans will be seeking a candidate who defies and challenges the Woke socialist state.

To be the candidate in 2024, Florida Covid needs to be able to push his former mentor aside. He needs the January 6 Committee and the Department of Justice to bring criminal charges of sedition against all those who participated in the attempt to steal the election and overthrow constitutional government in the United States. Only then can Florida Covid step into the opening created in the Trumpican Party with the decapitation of its criminal layer. Only then can he push the criminals aside and stand tall as the true practitioner of Trumpism without the legal baggage. Only then can he be the candidate of revenge.

Florida Covid is fighting the good fight with a goal in mind. If people die as result, then that is the price he is willing to have them pay. They are collateral damage on his hopeful path to the presidency in 2024.

Do Tucker/Trump Oppose the Socialist Chlorination of Water?

Do Tucker/Trump oppose the socialist chlorination of water? That action seems to match all the criteria deployed in the current opposition to vaccinations. It is based on science. It is a central government action. Individuals have no choice unless they are not connected to the municipal water system. For that matter, what do Tucker/Trump think about the mandatory requirement to use seat belts? Do they applaud the heroic individuals who decline to buckle up? Is the use of seat belts for children an example of child abuse?

What is going on here? Why is Tucker embarrassed to admit that he was vaccinated? Why is Trump not pounding the pavement in support of the Trump vaccine? This situation highlights that other considerations are involved besides “just the facts” or the merits of the case. Yes, vaccinations have been weaponized in the culture wars as masks were before it. Who knows if the chlorination of water be allowed if it were invented today.

LEADERSHIP

Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump are not leaders. They are channellers. They feel your pain to exploit their gain. They do not cause your grievance but they are skilled enough to sense its existence. Then they can amplify it, use it, profit from it. However, they do not cause the grievance or pain in the first place. The subtitle in the recent article in Time about Tucker tells it all: “By stoking the culture wars and peddling white grievance, TUCKER CARLSON has become the standard-bearer of the right.” Notice, he stokes the existing grievance. As the article suggests, Tucker provides excuses for people to express beliefs that they otherwise might feel uncomfortable with but already had.

And if Tucker/Trump disappear from cable TV or politics, the grievance and pain do not disappear with them. Then the people simply seek or require another mouthpiece to speak for them.

In some ways, these con artists remind me of some of the figures I see in science fiction shows (Star Trek). From time to time there will be aliens with telepathic powers of some kind. They may simply read your thoughts. They may seek to manipulate them for various reasons. But they do no create them. They may tap into the deepest parts of your brain to bring to the surface memories you suppress or ignore. Then those memories provide the alien with the opportunity to exploit you.

Con artists like Tucker/Trump work the same way. They are not leaders in the sense of being able to get you to do something you do not already want to do. An example of a channeller versus a leader was just displayed by Sean Hannity. Out of nowhere, he decided to tell the truth about the coronavirus and the need to be vaccinated. Perhaps someone he knew had died or been hospitalized. He couched his plea in the standard Foxhub rhetoric: talk with your doctor, your decision is confidential, you have freedom of choice. Still the thrust of the message was clear: YOU NEED TO BE VACCINATED NOW!

His message led to an immediate blowback. Viewers could see through his attempt to sugarcoat it that he was asking people to listen to Fauci and do what they already had decided not to do. In other words, he was trying to lead them. The effort failed. The result was he did a Kevin-McCarthy on 1/6. He walked back his failed try to be a leader. He should have known that. Remember when after the election Foxhub lost viewers to other media outlets fully dedicated to the alternate universe. Then Foxhub responded by doubling down on the partisan hype. Most likely Hannity will never again make the mistake of trying to lead his viewers. Instead; he will amplify their fears, insecurities, and need to believe in their view of the world regardless of what is really happening.

One observes the absolute refusal to abandon beliefs in the actions that otherwise defy commonsense. People on death bed exclaim how could they be dying from the coronavirus hoax. Even the hospitalization and looming death of child is not enough to sway true believers from their course. Their minds have been so manipulated and exploited over the years by Tucker/Trump and others that they have lost the capacity to think straight. The increase in vaccinations over the past week show that some people finally are getting the message that the virus is for real. Unfortunately it also reveals how many people cannot be reached.

One might think that the former President would be campaigning full-stop to have his followers be vaccinated. After all, he sometimes like to take credit for the development of the vaccines under his Warp Speed program. Sometimes the vaccine even is called the Trump vaccine so as not to give Biden any credit. And he was vaccinated himself. So why hasn’t he been championing the use of the vaccine?

Here we see that he is not a leader. He knows what Hannity learned by exposing himself to his viewers in his failed leadership initiative. He knows that if he tells his followers to be vaccinated they will not listen to him. Being a warrior in the culture wars trumps everything.

RONALD REAGAN

Consider the contrast with Ronald Reagan. Suppose something comparable had happened during his eight years as a two-term president. Would Reagan have worn a mask? Of course he would have. Wearing a mask did not threatened his masculinity and make him a wimp. It is simply what needed to be done to protect him and his fellow Americans from a threat. He would have made jokes about wearing a mask. He would have told stories about his days in Hollywood making westerns and wearing a mask. We are talking about someone who could make jokes even after he was shot in an attempted assassination. He would have worn a mask and so would the people who heroically refuse to today.

When the former President yanked off his mask on the White House balcony after having been released from the hospital, he was catering to his followers, not leading. The hope of some staff people that now he had seen the light and would be a leader were dashed. He remained true to himself as an insecure weeny con artist who failed to even try to be the leader the country needed. He is not going to jeopardize his extremely successful funding con by taking a leadership position.

In an earlier blog, I suggested that President Biden invite the former President to the White House to promote vaccination in a show of strength. A few days later, Frank Luntz, on CNN Andersen Cooper, made the same suggestion. Such pleas are for naught. Put aside all the comments made above and keep in mind that with our loser ex-President it is always about him.

The needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many. Think of how he condemned all the Republicans who voted on behalf of a bipartisan infrastructure bill. How could he appear at the White House with the person who stole the election, who is almost senile, and who is one-step from death’s door? He can only appear at the White House if it is to remove the present occupant as will happen on August 13. Otherwise the hitman would be legitimating Biden’s steal and undermining his own re-election chances.

So, no, Tucker/Trump will not call for ending the socialist chlorination of water based on science. They will not because at present, there is no grievance about chlorination of water for Tucker/Trump to exploit. But if the coronavirus vaccine was distributed through the public water system, then all bets are off. Just as all vaccines are questioned now, so would the chlorination of water. And remember, in Dr. Strangelove, the purity of water was enough to blow up the world.

 

Biden to Invite Trump to White House August 13 to Promote Vaccination

It's Not Over Until the Arizona Fat Lady Sings (https://www.wmur.com)

Joe Biden, the duly elected and legitimate President of the United States of America, will invite Donald Trump, his predecessor and loser in the 2020 presidential election, to the White House on August 13 to urge unvaccinated Americans to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Biden is extending this invitation because he knows the vaccine was developed during the previous administration. He wants to give credit where credit is due just as his predecessor constantly praised the success of the previous Obama administration for carryovers into his administration.

Biden also is extending this invitation because he knows that his predecessor and his family all were vaccinated. He knows his predecessor received extensive medical treatment when he was hospitalized for COVID not available to the ordinary American. Thus it is only natural that the number one spokesperson for vaccination be the person who has benefited the most from the advances in American health care.

While vaccinated Americans have little risk of fatality due to either the old virus or deadly Delta variant form of the virus, many Americans remain unvaccinated. The same weenies who proudly would not wear a mask proudly will not be vaccinated. They think vaccination is a sign of disloyalty to their Lord and Savior, the Chosen One, Blessed Be his Name. Plus they know that they cannot die from a hoax anyway.

Since nothing is more important to the former President then the well-being of his loyalists, naturally he will be happy to dispel these falsehoods and to call upon them to get vaccinated. What could be more important to the former President than the lives of the people who believe in him? The loser of the 2020 presidential election is only too happy to help.  Only he can save his loyal followers now.

And his followers will believe him. Again and again they have proved their loyalty to him. When he asked for money after the election over 2,000,000 people forked over $250 million no questions asked. And they would do it again if asked. And again again if asked once more. They are happy to tithe their Lord. So if he tells them to get vaccinated because it is a matter of life and death, naturally they will believe him and do as they have been told.

WHY AUGUST 13?

Normally August 13 would be a dull nondescript day. Summer camps have ended and counselors are busy bringing in the docks and sports equipment for winter storage. High school football teams have begun practicing under the hot summer sun. Vacations are drawing to a close. Casual Fridays are winding down. People stop taking that day off and leaving work early. Congress is on vacation. The Supreme Court is in recess. The dog days of summer are such slow news days that the talk shows have nothing much talk about.

There is some talk from Pillow Head that this August 13 will different. As I previously suggested, pre-millennialists now know not to specify the date of the return of their Lord and Savior. They know because every time they do the prophecy fails to come true. Despite that pattern, Pillow Head boldly asserted that the month of August would be the date. Then he became even more specific selecting August 13 as the date. Whereas premillennialists traditionally site the chapters and verses from the Gospels and the Book of Revelation to buttress their claim, Pillowhead so far has presented no proof of why that date will become the DATE OF DATES.

His claim of an 80 million to 68 million blowout election on behalf of the incumbent requires no proof. The mere pronouncement is sufficient. His claim will result in the immediate recall from recess of the aforementioned Supreme Court. They will abandon their vacations and rush back to Washington. They will invalidate the election results and install the supposed loser back into office even though there is no Constitutional mechanism or authority to do so. Pillow Head’s pronouncement will be proof enough.

However, the odds are no lawyers will take Pillow Head’s case to the Supreme Court anyway. Ridiculous Rudy and Séance Sydney are disbarred, discredited, or both. Lawyers in Michigan are being held accountable for the nonsense they peddled. Lawyers elsewhere are in the process of suffering similar fates. The once fiery Lin Wood has been rendered a whimpering scared little baby. Lawyers who have not participated in the attempt by the loser to steal the election can read the handwriting on the wall. They know they have nothing to gain and much to lose in becoming an accessory to the Big Lie and the effort to upturn the election results. Pillow Head will stand alone in his legal fight to steal the election.

In the meantime between now and August 13, the three-ring forensic audit circus in Arizona is working double-time to become more of a laughingstock. As the circus draws to a close, we are getting closer and closer to the moment of truth. The CyberNinjas are on the brink of put-up or shut-up. They have to present the truth of the massive fraud that supports the claim that Biden lost Arizona bigtime. Then they have to name the names of the people in Arizona, China, and elsewhere who perpetrated the fraud.

The opening salvo already backfired on the CyperNinjas. It proves they do not know what they are doing and that only people like Representative Rocky Mountain Airhead are simpleminded enough to leap before they look and swallow the bull trump hook, line, and sinker. Personally, I like the idea of the door-to-door canvasing undertaken by the CyperNinjas did. Maybe next election we can have concierge voting where the government brings the voting machines to your doorstep. That way no will have to wait six hours in line to vote because the state chose not provide sufficient voting machines in districts that vote Democratic. After all, there is nothing Tucker Carlson loves more than government representatives going door to door to get you to do something.

Even putting aside the CyperNinjas lack of knowledge about Arizona voting law, they omitted one crucial bit of information about the 74, 243 mail-in ballots: they were all requested by Republicans! Well, probably not. But besides exposing their ignorance, this brief foray into their analytical thinking provides a glimpse of what is to come. Nothing they say will make sense. Everything they claim will be debunked by people who actually know what they are talking about. Everything they claim will be believed by Trumpicans. All Republican candidates for the Arizona Senate (and probably other offices and in other states) will be forced take a stand which will jeopardize their (re-)election if there is a Democratic alternative.

However, just in case, we need to be prepared. Chief Justice Roberts should be invited to the August 13 White House vaccination ceremony, too. You never know.
