"We're all geniuses now"?! Not even close! What an ass! He was stupid then, and he is still stupid. But we can forgive stupid. What we can't forgive is tyranny. He was a tyrant then, and his is still a tryrant. We don't forgive him.

All people need to pay attention to are his current actions. He is ready to sign a bill allowing the state to take children away from their parents. Lying s*ck of sh*t

Businesses used government coronabucks for their "bizarre fetishistic placement of plexiglass everywhere" instead of using it to improve their ventilation systems, which actually could have improved indoor conditions.

Gov. Whitmer of Michigan alternately claimed "we're still learning about this virus" and "we know what works" almost like a toggle switch, depending on what suited her purpose in the moment.

But see, the virus is active while we walk to our restaurant table, and when we are standing around, but not when we are sitting and eating with friends.

Effing right, el gato. And yes, I am enraged.

In the accent of Borat, “Mistakes were made … NOT.”

And I just want to give a special shoutout to the Bakersfield doctors Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi for their April 22, 2020, press conference, which was the first example of sanity I witnessed during the initial mass hysteria and for many months to come:

no one knows me here and would have no reason to believe me but not many here would be surprised. An old old friend whose very well off is on the southern Cali board of a charity. A charity that happens to be the same one Gavin Newsom is lead on in NorCal. My buddy is VP of SoCal and the President of SoCal is Newsoms friend. During the PLANdemic the President of the Socal chapter while talking with my buddy her VP sent Newsom text messages about how he's ruining CA with his plandemic approach. He texted back, you think I'm in control of this? You think this is what I want? About 10 minutes later when they pulled up the texts to show a few others the texts had been magically erased. These people are absolutely puppets to the men/women behind the curtain. THe country has been taken over but the facade remains.

We have a generation now of social media addicts who think the only reason anyone would be opposed to censorship is that they want to spread hate speech (like biological sex is real, variances in IQ exist, and some cultures are incompatible).

It will never dawn on them on their own that censorship prevents you from hearing dissident voices. "We’re experts in hindsight. We’re all geniuses now.” No, asshole, I never claimed to be a genius. People like me had legit questions that were buried by people like you.

Now you should answer not just for your stance, but for your know-nothing authoritarianism. This isn't even about pandemic policy. It's about living in a functioning republic.

Really, we need leaders in our lives? No thanks.

Yes the narrative should not be permitted to stand. Politicians, experts and media are aligned that it must stand. Society for the most part remains compliant. Where is the road to sanity

great stuff - that weasel will get away with it - but thanks for calling him out

What's another story here is how timid the reporters are who gently question about this. The guy who asked Fauci about the masks had to text to apologize to him!!! What world is this.

In this case Todd said you kept the churches closed and allowed him to wriggle instead of saying, "you kept schools closed, playgrounds, small businesses, yet you were out your kids were in school, etc". A proper interview would have left no doubt about this scoundrel

Newsom: “I think all of us in terms of our collective wisdom, we’ve evolved. We didn’t know what we didn’t know. We’re experts in hindsight. We’re all geniuses now.”

Florida: Our Surgeon General came from California. He apparently evolved a bit sooner.

Gavin Newsom...there is an old Adam Carolla episode where Adam grills Newsom about check cashing places, and you can tell the guy is a light weight intellectually. He is sound bites, charisma, and there is nada underneath. He tried to pass off all the woke stuff even then, the mental gymnastics of inclusivity and diversity was something he just could not grasp.

Just a small addition. The 2019 WHO pandemic flu recommendations say "Not under any circumstances:" do mass contact tracing, border closures, restrictions on internal travel (and more. Because they have little effect, and do harm. People do need to stop pretending it was a learning issue. https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/329438/9789241516839-eng.pdf?ua=1

Especially the last picture gives it away. The plexiglass lowers the threshold of understanding what either customer or cashier are saying. They need to speak louder. With louder speaking - proven - more saliva is ejected. More saliva ejected - more saliva droplets on customer items' packages. If there would have been anything real deadly, it would have made contact with the customer at packing his/her things into bags, or when debagging those items at home.

The injections were the goal and newsom was knewsome when he did what he did as a good WEF-boy. Any of the WEF-'leaders' are imbecilic cretins only interested in their own advance and interests. They are the rotten fruits that need to be thrown on the compost heap of history.
