Nolte: Disgraceful Timeline of Biden's Badly Bungled Booster Boosterism
Just as we saw with hydroxychloroquine last summer, government alphabet agencies, the medical industrial complex, and their willing accomplices in the media have recently made it clear that there is yet another safe, effective treatment for COVID-19 they wish to torpedo. It’s the latest naughty word which will get you censored on social media and mocked and belittled by late-night “comedians”: Ivermectin. The U.S. government, the media, and Big Pharma are all playing important roles in the deadly dystopian disinformation campaign against the drug. Those engaged in this campaign are guilty of crimes against humanity.
Arguably the most prestigious newspaper in the English-speaking world is The Times of London. As you can imagine, it is far from rabidly conservative. So it should be a clarion call for the world that this headline story, written by prominent Times columnist Rod Liddle, appeared in last Sunday’s (9/26) Times:
Into The Woods, there’s a point in the story when things have gone terribly wrong for everyone. The characters respond by disavowing personal responsibility and telling everyone else that it’s “Your Fault.” That song could have been the background music to the nauseating spectacle in the Senate Tuesday (9/28), when Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, and head of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee about the debacle in Afghanistan.In Stephen Sondheim’s
EU and U.S. combined. It’s turning out that the fate of large parts of the U.S. economy consequently depends not on regulatory actions in Washington but on bureaucratic decisions in China. The global world that Joe Biden had hoped to inherit is falling apart right under him, like a comedy car shedding its parts as it rattles down the road.Despite his vow to “build back better,” China is forcing all of Joe Biden’s moves. The Asian giant’s decision to pursue its own climate policy, consisting largely of more industrialization with green trimmings, effectively kills the Paris accords, so long a part of the progressive platform. How could it not? Beijing produces more emissions than the
Greenie energy has been vaunted by politicians such as Barack Obama, Zhou Xiden, and virtually every European politician in power as progress itself, the way forward, the wave of the future. Anyone who's got problems with it, as Obama smarmily assured, is "stuck in the past." Turns out that's nonsense. After going green and shutting down its coal, fossil fuel, fracking, and nuclear energy production, and feeling mighty virtuous for doing it, Europe is now going cold — freezing cold. The region faces a bad winter ahead with energy shortages across the board. It’s not even October yet, and here’s a headline (9/27: Record-Breaking Cold Sweeps Europe. Seems green energy can do everything to make a lefty European feel good except produce the actual energy, even as Xiden is doing his darnedest to take America down that cliff.
There is a basic reality in Washington. Democrats have a slim margin in the United States House of Representatives and no margin in the United States Senate. In the House, Democrats can lose roughly three votes for their agenda. In the Senate, Democrats can lose no votes. Now the Democrats are squabbling amongst themselves over infrastructure, a continuing resolution, and a debt ceiling. They have no unity within their ranks on these issues. Now, they have a bold new strategy — expect Republicans to throw them a lifeline to avoid a government shutdown and a debt ceiling through which the United States runs off a fiscal cliff. Let. Dems. Drown. Give the Democrats no lifeline.
heavy metal rock fans, so may not know how immensely popular one of its founders, Dave Mustaine, and his band Megadeth, are with much of young America. Last Friday night (9/17) at a sell-out concert in Camden, New Jersey, Mustaine condemned “mask tyranny”: “See, the thing right now that’s going on, is tyranny. This is called tyranny. And tyranny isn’t only in government. Tyranny right now is in the schools, and tyranny is in the medical business… And we have the power to push back against it.” To which the ecstatic crowd chanted “USA! USA! USA!” and “F*** Joe Biden! F*** Joe Biden!” The revolt is gaining strength: Megadeth Rocker Dave Mustaine Tells Concert Crowd 'We Have the Power' to Push Back Against Tyranny The vax litmus test and the subsequent witch hunt for and purge of the politically unreliable scapegoats: They Are Creating The Biggest Witch Hunt In American HistoryMost TTPers are not
"A sea of misery of biblical proportions" is how Steve Bannon described the humanitarian crisis on the southern border. Within hours of his inauguration, President Biden stopped the building of the border wall and made it clear to all comers around the world that our border is open. He invited all those migrants who have arrived from all over the world to enter what the Left swears is an irreparably racist nation. There are hardly words to adequately describe the damage done to America since Biden took office, both here and among our soon-to-be former allies. It sure seems as though he is doing China's bidding. At China’s direction, Biden seems determined to turn all of America into a sea of misery.
“Never forget class struggle!” proclaimed Mao in Fall 1962 at the Chinese Communist Party’s annual retreat. This maxim quickly became the fevered chant of the day, paving the way for the Cultural Revolution resulting in the deaths of tens of millions of Chinese. Modified into “Never forget race struggle!,” the command has the same appeal in today’s Woke America. As a student of the totalitarianism of Mao’s China—which was exceptionally effective in peddling propaganda and staging performances of feigning, preening, and indignation—I find Woke America’s reinvention of Maoism fascinating and terrifying. Mao is the unsung hero for contemporary CRT intellectuals.
The scientific method used to govern much of popular American thinking. In empirical fashion, scientists advised us to examine evidence and data, and then by induction come to rational hypotheses. The enemies of “science” were politics, superstition, bias, and deduction. Yet we are now returning to our version of medieval alchemy and astrology in rejecting a millennium of the scientific method. Take the superstitions that now surround COVID-19, aka the Communist Chinese Virus.
The incurable incompetence, corruption, and moral rot of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was on full display last week. Within a 24-hour period, some of America’s best female athletes recounted to a Senate committee their painful tales of how the FBI ignored evidence that team doctor Larry Nassar was a sexual predator -- and a powerful attorney who colluded with the FBI to concoct one of the most animating chapters of the Trump-Russia collusion fiction was indicted for lying to federal officials. Overlap in the two cases is more than ironic, it’s illustrative:
Biden Adviser Says President "Will Run Over" GOP Governors Who Resist Vaccine Mandate I think that he has got it right: Nebraska Gov. Ricketts: Biden Said He Didn't Believe in Vax Mandates, 'Have to Wonder' if Mandate Is Deflection from 'Disaster in Afghanistan' DeSantis in revolt: Ron DeSantis Vows to Fight Biden’s Vaccine Mandate: ‘It’s Not Constitutional’Oh, please, Massa Joe, please throw us into this briar patch! We jus’ love yo threats cuz you so desperate to change the subject from the shameful rout of Americans, allies, and $86 billion of weapons you left behind in Afghanistan. And your growing hyperinflation and stagflation at home. And your wanting to force us Americans to get vaxxed with illegal aliens unvaxxed. But watch out, Massa Joe – the Vaccine Rebellion just might run over you!
Let’s start with Wikipedia’s List of California Governors. Scroll down the photo of each, from Peter Burnett in 1849 to Gavin Gruesome today, and notice that every single one for the last 172 years has been a white man. California Democrats had the chance to correct this yesterday (9/14), and of course they blew it, believing their lily-white living-example-of-white-privilege governor, who told them a vote for his black opponent was a vote for white supremacy.. Lesson. Learned. Despite being one of the most psychotic authoritarian COVID governors in America and an all-around awful human being, Gavin Newsom will keep his job. One bottom line is that over half of California voters are too stupid to recall Newsom. Another is that Democrats are the real racists in this country. That’s the story here.
Democrats are crowing about California's Gov. Gavin Newsom surviving his recall election, and by a 64% to 35% margin. According to CNN: "'No' is not the only thing that was expressed tonight," Newsom, who will now finish out his term, said Tuesday night. "We said yes to science, yes to vaccines, yes to ending this pandemic." Really? A blue-state governor with a huge Democrat-registered majority somehow won his recall election? Not a lot of news in that. Nor is the breakdown — the rural counties voted against him; the big blue coastal cities voted for him
The US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin—the man who presided over the worst, most incompetent, most humiliating military defeat in the history of our nation—is black. Of course, he’s black. He was appointed by Joe Biden to display the wonderful diversity of the most progressive president in history. He wasn’t chosen because he was a brilliant military leader (obviously). He was chosen because he was a political hack ready and willing to embrace even the most suicidal left-wing policies. Left-wing policies are by their very nature suicidal because the defining characteristic of the Left is that it hates America and wants to “dismantle” it and replace it with the left-wing fantasy of a socially just future. Which is why “Pink Lloyd’s goal is not to protect America but indoctrinate all America’s troops in Black Lives Matter hate white people and hate America propaganda.
Last week, word emerged from the White House that Biden’s own staff can’t stand to listen to him. It’s not that they don’t agree with his policies (heck—they probably crafted them). Instead, it’s that he’s such a verbal loose cannon that they shudder when they hear him speak off the cuff. Yesterday (9/13), the White House staffers paying attention to his answers about western wildfires were so worried about where his mouth was taking him that they pulled the plug on him in mid-sentence. Last Tuesday (9/07) a Politico story explained that Biden’s staff constantly worries about Mr. Big Mouth in the White House. It appears that everyone in Biden's orbit is begging him to keep his mouth shut and be the good little puppet they need.
As a college professor for over 35 years, I’ve gotten to know three generations of students: Gen Y (born between 1965 and 1980), the Millennials (1981-1996), and now Gen Z (1997-2012). And because I teach rhetoric, I’ve read thousands of their papers, providing substantial insight into the way they think. Given what I observed among my Millennial college students, today’s post-rational, fact-free culture, with its toxic mix of ignorance, arrogance, and utter cluelessness (think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) was inevitable. We should not, however, despair, remembering that everything is cyclical. The Millennials will not necessarily have the last word. This may be their time in the sun, their opportunity to tear down our civilization temporarily unimpeded, but that moment (as always) is fleeting. There is another generation of bright young people—Gen Z—following right on their heels and therein may lie our temporal salvation
Biden's Cabinet appointees? Every one of them has been chosen not for their expertise in any sphere of influence, but for their radicalism; the farther left these people are, the better in Biden's (?) view.Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have once again betrayed the American people and voted to confirm one of the most insidious persons ever nominated to a Cabinet position, Richard "Rachel" Levine. He will now be the assistant secretary of health. (Yes, the photos above are of the same person. Richard was married with children until he decided at age 52 to pretend he was a woman named Rachel. He is now 62. – JW) The question of the day is, why have any Republicans voted to confirm any of

China’s ongoing battle with debt continues, as the government attempts to reduce leverage in the wake of its China Virus fiscal spending. Guo Shuqing, chairman of China Banking Regulatory Commission, stated recently that high financial leverage may threaten Chinese firms with bankruptcy. Guo noted that China’s debt has soared 30 percent since the outset of the coronavirus pandemic. High debt levels have presented an ongoing challenge to China’s economic health. Here are the details on why.
The President of China, Xi Jingping, has made his intentions extremely clear: to overtake the United States as the major global superpower. In domestic speeches for Chinese audiences, he hammers the table about dominating the US. “The biggest source of chaos in the present-day world is the United States,” President Xi said recently, “The United States is the biggest threat to our country’s development and security.” Some people are afraid that this means a hot war with tanks and guns is on the horizon. But that would be counterproductive for China. They don’t need to go to war. They already won. Just look at how much China has accomplished over the past year.
Glenn H. Reynolds in the New York Post. “Woke tyrants are riding high” and “62 percent of Americans self-censor their political expression.” The question for me, as a scholar and citizen, is why this minority has been able to gain such control, not only here but throughout the Anglosphere and in Western Europe. This group’s ideas seem weird and entail the debasement of the West’s core population, who are being urged or forced to submit to their own degradation and the canceling of their inherited culture and morality. Why do we, who are in the majority, allow this?“A small but determined and vicious minority is bullying people,” observes Instapundit
President Trump jump-started his presidential campaign because of his outsized presence on Twitter. Once he became president, he used Twitter to bypass a hostile media. He also used his tweets to capture the media's attention while he got the real work done in the Oval Office. No wonder Twitter has deplatformed him. Now, though, a Trump insider is reporting that POTUS has social media plans for his own: he's got a new platform planned and wants to redefine social media. For those people around Trump or any of the people he's been meeting with who read TTP, I have a few suggestions. It's not enough to create a social media site. Trump needs to create a communication, finance, and platform empire. Anything he builds should include:
What do all these newly created Fed dollars mean? It took from 1776 to the start of 2020 for the M1 money supply to rise to 4 trillion dollars. It took one more year for M1 to rise to 18 trillion dollars.

I am not a particular fan of Ernest Hemingway’s novel “The Sun Also Rises.” But there is one exchange between two of the characters, Bill Gorton and Mike Campbell, that has stuck with me.
That passage has been running through my head a lot recently. President Trump had arrested America’s gradual decline. Now this impostor in his place has accelerated it straight off a cliff.
“’How did you go bankrupt?’ Bill asked.
‘Two ways,’ Mike said. ‘Gradually and then suddenly’.”
The answer to that question may be in his absurd speech last Thursday (3/11) when he said “We may have to reinstate the lockdown restrictions” if… If what? What if the migrants the Xiden Administration is allowing to come across the southern border without being tested, even if showing symptoms, then given bus tickets to any American city they hope to reach, is a grand plan to spread this flu throughout the country again? Why? In order to reinstate all the unconstitutional restrictions to which millions of Americans willingly submitted?
[This week, TTPer Yasuhiko Kimura provides us profound guidance on keeping our sanity amidst the excess stress, mass neurosis, and cultural decadence permeating our society today. Thank you, Yasuhiko! –JW] It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society. ― J. Krishnamurti When the majority of the population suffers from a certain mental disorder, it becomes normalized. Thus, we can restate Krishnamurti’s above quote: It is no measure of mental health to be well adjusted to and normal in a profoundly neurotic society. The question is: How can we help people free themselves from this mass neurosis and decadent mass culture so as to restore sanity within and without?
Svoboda.org, February 26).Early spring in Russia is a season of awakening from winter slumber—and it is remarkably rich with hopeful historical markers. The notion of “thaw” is forever connected with the liberating death of Joseph Stalin on March 5, 1953, and the “secret speech” of Nikita Khrushchev to the 20th Communist Party Congress three years later, when the “cult of personality” was denounced. Today, President Vladimir Putin may be busy building his own cult, but his address to the Federal Security Service (FSB), the organization that inherits the tradition of Stalin’s brutal all-penetrating KGB control, betrayed his fears of uncontrollable shifts in Russian society (

The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden's cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband's campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified. The woman is egregiously guilty of elder abuse for allowing poor Joe to suffer the indignities of encroaching dementia in public.
A new term has entered the political lexicon in recent months, and it appears to have left-wing activists – woketards – sputtering with rage. Conservatives on social media have been using “Blue Anon” to describe Democrats who believe in various government-sanctioned conspiracy theories, leading some on the Left to attempt to censor the potent term. You won’t believe what happened next – just over the last few days.
On the left, the tumbrels are rolling again, delivering former icons like Dr. Seuss, Pepe Le Pew, and other enemies of the people to the cultural guillotines for immediate beheading. Their crimes: their decades-old sensibilities are out of touch with those of the seething, humorless and frankly not very bright scolds who currently inhabit the fever swamps of Twitter, Facebook, and the editorial pages of the New York Times. Go ahead, laugh; what could be more ridiculous than discerning “rape culture” in the broadly drawn behavior of a French striped skunk who’s been looking for love in all the wrong places since 1945? So here’s how to cancel all this garbage.
There are tens of millions of Americans who either have been stung, or turned off, by McCarthyite wokeness (and thus have anti-wokeness antibodies). More have been vaccinated from its latest virulent strains by their own values of judging people as individuals, not as racial or gender collectives. So lots of Americans have developed peremptory defenses against it. The result is that daily there are ever-fewer who are susceptible to the woke pandemic. And it will thus begin to fade out—even as the virus desperately seeks to mutate and go after more institutions. Peak Wokeness is nearing. Here’s why.

What explains the greening of Wall Street with corporate CEOs becoming woke and dissing the system that made them rich? “With every breath we take,” Apple CEO Tim Cook declared in the wake of George Floyd’s death, “we must commit to being that change, and to creating a better, more just world for everyone.” There is indeed something nauseating about people claiming to be virtuous when they’re not, but to accuse Apple and Disney of hypocrisy would be to miss the point. Wokeness is directed at transforming America, using Wall Street and corporate America to help bring it about. Stephen Soukup’s new book, The Dictatorship of Woke Capital: How Political Correctness Captured Big Business, provides the best account so far of how finance capital ended up on the woke side of the culture wars.
President Trump gave a memorable address on Sunday evening (2/28) to the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC). For such a boffo performance, the Emmy mistakenly awarded to New York Governor Andrew Pinocchio Cuomo should be retrieved and redirected to him. In one mighty swinging oratorical stroke of 90 minutes, Trump asserted authority over his party, arraigned the new administration for the complete failure to accomplish anything useful in the first 40 of its vaunted 100 days, and then rolled through the Biden executive orders like a bulldozer. [Note: please refer to the parts of POTUS at CPAC in italics regarding Lord Black’s specific references in the President’s speech.]
Dissidents have been warning us for years about the nature of China's communist totalitarian regime. But unlike a lot of them, the dictatorship also has money and markets. In the West, especially in Woke America, that means quisling defenders, many with a snoot in the Chicom trough. So here comes a pitched curve ball for China's clapping seals: courts there have declared homosexuality is a mental illness. This puts China's defenders, nearly all leftists, in an increasingly untenable position – from LeBron James, Disney and all Hollwood, to Apple, Eric Swalwell, and China Joe Xiden.
