The press keeps lying about the China virus.
The Biden administration really wants this Afghanistan thing to go away. But, even with the media’s help, Old Joe is having a tough time making this one go away.
And pro-abortionists get a very appropriate supporter.
For some reason, no one on the Left likes Joe Rogan. Well, may be we do know.
- He’s a famous podcaster.
- He follows common sense which makes him somewhat Conservative though he’s more a Libertarian.
- He doesn’t buy any of the Left’s garbage and there are a lot of people listening to him.
- He’s rich.
- He’s white.
- And he’s male.
- He’s not vaccinated.
Well, he caught the China virus. He used a cocktail of recommended therapeutics, including a drug called ivermectin. Two days later, Joe posted a video of him stating that he was perfectly fine. Ten days later, he’s out of the house and doing his thing.
This blew the Left’s and the media’s mind. It goes against the media’s narrative about masking, vaccines and lockdowns. Rogan wouldn’t take the vaccine because he was younger and very healthy and he didn’t trust the vaccine. He also has been questioning Tony Fauci and the government’s motives with all this.
The media went after this drug, ivermectin, because it is not the government’s chosen drug, the vaccine is. So they said that the drug was not used for human beings, it was a horse de-wormer. This is really the only lie the media could come up with. They got called out when Trump supposedly said to inject bleach to get rid of the China virus (he did not say that). They got called out when they said a guy was poisoned when he took fish tank cleaner because is had hydroxychloroquine in it (turned out his wife tried to poison him).
But leave it to Rolling Stone to throw out the big lie that the Left could run with. They reported that a hospital in Oklahoma was so overwhelmed by over doses of ivermectin that they could not treat gunshot victims. This was according to a doctor named Dr. Jason McElyea. He said:
“The ERs are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated.
“All of their ambulances are stuck at the hospital waiting for a bed to open so they can take the patient in and they don’t have any, that’s it. If there’s no ambulance to take the call, there’s no ambulance to come to the call.”
This story was reported and pushed by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Joy Reid.
Here’s the story with ivermectin:
- It is a horse de-wormer.
- It is also an anti-parasitic drug.
- It has been used is humans for over half a century.
- It is considered a wonder drug in Africa because it cure malaria.
Turns out, the story in the Rolling Stone was another lie. Not surprising from them. They also created a huge uproar over a story about rape culture in college campuses. Their evidence was a woman who never existed. The hospital in question stated that they were not being overwhelmed by gunshot wounds or overdoses. They also said that Dr. Jason McElyea has not worked in the hospitals in months. He has also written several papers on Leftist causes.
They also stated that they have not seen one ivermectin overdose case at the hospital.
How Are Those Evacuations Going?
The evacuations out of Afghanistan are not going well. Maybe a more accurate statement is the government isn’t doing anything. Though the government says they will be stop at nothing to get people out, they appear to have no plan, no control of the airports, no control of any air space and no flights in or out of Afghanistan. In fact, all we keep hearing is how the government is depending on the Taliban to get the people out.
There’s a problem.
People on the ground are reporting that the Taliban is not letting people leave the country, even if they have papers. Six flights of Afghans trying to leave the country, run by private sources, were being held up by the Taliban. They won’t let them take off.
Rep. Michael McCaul, Member of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee said:
“The Taliban will not let them leave the airport… They’re going to demand more and more, whether it be cash or legitimacy as the government of Afghanistan.”
The Taliban denies they are holding anyone hostage but the country is, financially, collapsing. They need money. They won’t six plane loads of people leave who have every right to leave. That sounds like a hostage crisis.
But Secretary of State, Antoney Blinkin said there was no evidence that anyone was being held hostage:
“We are not aware of anyone being held on an aircraft or any hostage-like situation in Mazar-i-Sharif.
“We’ve been able to identify a relatively small number of Americans who we believe are seeking to depart from Mazar-i-Sharif with their families. We have been assured, again, that all American citizens and Afghan citizens with valid travel documents will be allowed to leave.”
The United States government has no recourse here without the permission of the Taliban. They’re not going to get it. We are going to end up paying the Taliban to get these people out if the government wants to. I got to tell you, it sure looks like the Biden administration really doesn’t want to do something about this. It’s like they want to just let this go away and screw the people over there.
The media and the Biden administration are trying to move on to other stories:
- Biden was talking about climate change this weekend.
- The media is talking about COVID (again) and Hurricane Ida.
There’s no interest in the people left behind. Everyone wants this whole thing forgotten.
They’re Actually Not Helping
As I said a few minutes ago, there are a lot of private companies and NGOs who are trying to get people out of Afghanistan. Yeah, well, the Biden administration, who won’t do a damn thing to fix this mess, is not letting the people who want to do something, do anything.
According to the Daily Wire:
The Biden State Department refused to give approval to private charter planes seeking to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies from Afghanistan, according to a report from Fox News based on a leaked email.
The State Department refused “to grant official approval for private evacuation flights from Afghanistan to land in third countries, even though the department conceded that official authorization would likely be needed for planes to land in those nations,” according to Fox News, which obtained the email.
Citing possible security threats to both those on board the airplanes and those on the ground at Department of Defense airbases, the State Department also said that “charter flights, even those containing American citizens, would not be allowed to land at Defense Department (DOD) airbases,” effectively grounding the evacuation mission.
If there’s any doubt that the Biden administration wants this to go away, this should pretty much erase this doubt. Old Joe Biden just wants these people to disappear and his administration appears to be doing, and not doing, everything in their power to make sure these people disappear.
You might be asking why the Biden administration is going out of their way to prevent people from returning. Let’s face it, this looks like the administration is interfering. That’s because what is going on over there is horrid. People are being raped, sold into slavery, tortured and killed. People who get over here are going to tell those stories. This is the kind of stuff the Biden administration doesn’t want to come out.
If Biden is intentionally leaving people behind to the tender mercies of the Taliban, this could lead to an impeachment or resignation, and not just of Joe Biden. Unfortunately, I doubt the stuff that is going on over there is going to be kept a secret long. The Taliban likes executing people, like filming it and like social media. Within a month or two, stuff is going to leak and there will questions that need to be answered.
Take As Much Credit As You Can
Not only is the government not doing anything but they are taking credit for things they’re not doing.
Last Monday, the State Department celebrated the safe passage for a woman and her three children:
“U.S. has facilitated the safe departure of four U.S. citizens by overland route from Afghanistan. Embassy staff was present upon their arrival.”
There was a problem with that statement. The State Department had nothing to do with it. Fox News reported:
“But those actually involved in the dangerous rescue operation say the State Department deserves little to no credit for Mariam’s escape from Afghanistan.
“Cory Mills and a private team of military veterans, drawing on funding by private donors including the Sentinel Foundation, led the effort to rescue Mariam and her three children from Afghanistan, where they had been left behind by the Biden administration, multiple sources with knowledge of Mariam’s evacuation confirmed to Fox News.”
What a shock! The Biden administration has lied again. They are so hurting for victories that they need to steal them from someone else.
People Are Pissed
While in New Jersey on Tuesday, inspecting the Damage from Hurricane Ida, some people reminded Old Joe that he was not going to be allowed to forget the people he left behind. Some of this is rather prickly so listen with caution.

As usual, Old Joe didn’t even acknowledge the people. Here’s another:

This is not going away and he’s going to have to do something. Too many people, even in Democratic run states like New Jersey, are pissed about what happened over there and all Biden’s rhetoric and misdirection is not going to change that.
The Abortion Debate Continues On
There was a guest on Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC who had an interesting solution on how Leftists could stop the abortion ban in Texas.
The Nation magazine contributor Elie Mystal first compared the disaster from hurricane Ida to the abortion law in Texas:
I live in New York, OK? It is wet right now. If I was on top of my roof looking for help, I would expect the cavalry to be coming directly, right? FEMA, Coast Guard, Operation Dumbo Drop, somebody should be coming to get me. In fact, when it happened in Katrina, the failure of the federal government to go get people was viewed as one of the biggest failures of George W. Bush’s presidency. Similarly, we need to go and get women in Texas and protect their constitutionally protected medical rights.
- If he was in trouble, the cavalry would come to rescue him. Where’s the cavalry to rescue the thousands of unborn babies that are being killed on a daily basis?
- Of course, he’s got to blame Katrina on George Bush. These people don’t realize that the reason the levees broke, which caused the disaster in New Orleans was a failure of the Democratic governor and mayor. They never
- Bush’s errors were after the fact.
- Finally, something the Left tries to convince us of is the Constitutionality of abortion. There is, again and forever, nothing in the Constitution about abortion. Therefore, it is not protected by the Constitution.
The way you do that is that you deputize doctors. You federalize doctors. You create, through an executive order, an army of federal doctors who are going to go into Texas and protect the Constitution by consulting women about their privacy rights and their medical history. By federalizing the doctor force, that would protect those abortion providers from the Texas law.
- This is what Leftists want to do with everything. Nationalize the infrastructure, the police, the medical field. They think the central government is that powerful.
- Here’s the problem that they have: the federal government isn’t that powerful. States have rights. One of those rights is to create laws that the federal government cannot overturn, even if passed by Congress.
- That’s what makes the Constitution so powerful and why they hate it so much.
- This guy believes that the federal government is more powerful than state governments. They just need to make doctors federal employees and then they can commit all the abortions they want in Texas.
- Well, they can’t. State laws outweigh government edicts per the Constitution.
But the pro-abortionists do have a powerful ally.
The the Satanic Temple has officially condemned the Texas abortion law.
According to their website:
“This ritual may be performed by our members as a way to fortify self-worth, instill confidence, and provide spiritual comfort. The performance of the Satanic abortion ritual is protected by religious liberty laws. It exempts Satanists from fulfilling any medically unnecessary and unscientific requirement, such as mandatory waiting periods or unwanted sonograms, that interferes with the practice of our ritual.”
So abortion is a ritual for the TST. How appropriate. It’s a religious ritual for the Left also.
They stated on their website that they would be filing a lawsuit against the Texas abortion law:
“Abortion laws in TX violate our religious rights and TST has taken legal action. If TX judges abide by the Constitution and legal precedent, then those who share our deeply held beliefs will be exempt from the state’s inappropriate efforts to restrict access to abortion services.”
This is not going to be taken seriously but it would be a good argument. Religious ceremonies are protected. The problem is this could be seen as human sacrifice which is illegal and not protected.
