@AlexBerenson20hPeople keep asking me what I think of Uncle Joe’s comments last night.What I think: the pandemic ended 29 months ago when the hospital ships sailed empty out of New York Harbor. That ended ANY risk SARS-Cov-2 could cause a serious crisis. Everything since has been theater…
I am told the upcoming elections, if Republicans do well, will not be fair, and that decades of civil rights work and legislation are meaningless now because the Senate still has the filibuster and Joe Manchin. It seems every story is reported with a flashlight held under the announcer’s chin.I tried to figure out if I’d gone insane. The arguments are so stupid, it was like arguing a horse is not an orange. I left the room for five minutes and returned to see that the US was semi-at-war over another country’s problems. What, are there Kurds now in Ukraine we have to die for? I couldn’t find any debate, anybody asking why we were starting down the road to another war, only that I should get scared again of the Russian Bear taking over Europe.
Personally, I think the Democrats will nuke some American city in order to create the next emergency. Probably not DC though.Patrick. Do you know how bat shit crazy that sounds? You're a smart guy. As much as you hate the Democrats could you really see this happening? C'mon man!

@Arnie1974·20hAre We Headed Towards World War III? Who Lobs the First Nuke?Michael Yon: "If anybody lobs the first Nuke, I really think it's more likely to be the United States than anybody else. We've got a completely insane 'government.' There's nothing they won't do. Zero."
Historians of the future, grilling spatchcocked plovers over their campfires, will need not ponder for even a New York minute who started World War Three in the rockin’ 2020s. They will point straight to the waxy, furtive, larval figure known as “Joe Biden,” by then judged a moral weevil of such epic low degree that he became an embarrassment to all the other sewer-dwelling denizens of the dank DC underworld...
President Biden keeps the COVID ‘emergency’ going so he can act like a dictator
Special report: America's perpetual state of emergencyGregory KorteUSA TODAYOct. 22, 2014WASHINGTON — The United States is in a perpetual state of national emergency.Thirty separate emergencies, in fact.An emergency declared by President Jimmy Carter on the 10th day of the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979 remains in effect almost 35 years later.A post-9/11 state of national emergency declared by President George W. Bush — and renewed six times by President Obama — forms the legal basis for much of the war on terror.
OCTOBER 18, 2022Biden Extends COVID Emergency Powers … AgainA month ago, Biden claimed the pandemic was over, but he is loath to give up the emergency powers justified by it.
The updated schedules and program guidance will be published in early 2023. CDC will continue to update and work with health departments, providers, and other partners over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition of the COVID-19 vaccination program from emergency response to a routine immunization program activity.
So, where was the law? I asked the question on Twitter and was given various answers. It could come through the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, an act of Parliament designed to grant sweeping powers in times of ‘emergency’, defined as an event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare or to the environment of a place, or war or terrorism threatening serious damage to security of the United Kingdom. Perhaps the rules would be in the Coronavirus Bill, a vast collection of powers and rules which was being rushed through Parliament at breakneck speed even as the Prime Minister stood up to address the nation. Or maybe through an obscure public health statute which had provided the basis for the law which – at the stroke of a ministerial pen – closed non-essential businesses two days earlier. It was like a legal murder mystery. Which law would be used to remove our freedoms?
Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the COVID-19 State of Emergency will end on February 28, 2023, charting the path to phasing out one of the most effective and necessary tools that California has used to combat COVID-19. [ . . . ]California has the tools needed to continue fighting COVID-19 when the State of Emergency terminates at the end of February, including vaccines and boosters, testing, treatments and other mitigation measures like masking and indoor ventilation. As the State of Emergency is phased out, the SMARTER Plan continues to guide California’s strategy to best protect people from COVID-19.[ . . . ]“California’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has prepared us for whatever comes next. As we move into this next phase, the infrastructure and processes we’ve invested in and built up will provide us the tools to manage any ups and downs in the future,” said Secretary of the California Health & Human Services Agency, Dr. Mark Ghaly. “While the threat of this virus is still real, our preparedness and collective work have helped turn this once crisis emergency into a manageable situation.”
RNC Research@RNCResearch23hBiden today: “This is a global health emergency.”Biden in September: “The pandemic is over.”
Of course it's over, but emergency power requires that the government continue to lie if they want to keep that power. And POWER is all the government cares about. NOT YOU.
From the standpoint of the vaccine manufacturers, EUA is a preferred pathway for marketing their products. A single purchaser (the US Government) provides complete liability indemnification, a guaranteed market with very little oversight, and manages both the distribution and marketing. In the case of all unlicensed products, the manufacturers are prohibited from marketing them, but under EUA the US Government has been doing this for them, and has been acting in coordination with corporate media, social media, and large technology firms to suppress any discussion of risks or limitations of the products. From the standpoint of the vaccine manufacturers, this is all profit and no risk; a perfect business model. Why would they ever want to consider taking up the burden of actually producing and marketing the licensed version of these products?
What specific power does the executive branch have now that it would lose without this specific state of emergency order? Beyond the power to easily distribute EUA vaccines and tests, anything?

I could be making this up but didn’t Biden use the state of emergency to justify the student loan forgiveness?... to be immediately slapped down in court.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States will keep in place the public health emergency status of the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing millions of Americans to still receive free tests, vaccines and treatments, two Biden administration officials said on Friday.
RWSGFY says I could be making this up but didn’t Biden use the state of emergency to justify the student loan forgiveness? ... to be immediately slapped down in court.Yes, but only after the midterms. Biden's handlers knew student loan forgiveness would be struck down by courts, but it was a political pander to get student debtor votes.
But did he really need any "coof emergency" to go ahead with it? I think he would've done it anyway, emergency or not.
While the Emergency is in place all factors of the HERO Act stay.https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/6800
It was a shock, however, that the Senate decided to push back on the perpetual overreach by voting Tuesday to end the perpetual emergency.I guess the Senate thought 975 days of "15 days to slow the spread" was enough.From the Wall Street Journal:Senate lawmakers voted on Tuesday to end the federal government's emergency declaration on the Covid-19 pandemic, a status that has given the Biden administration tools to combatthe coronavirus.The Senate voted 62-36 to end the emergency declaration nearly three years after it was invoked. It's unclear if the House will take up the measure. ...But...First off, the House probably won't take up this bipartisan effort while Pelosi is still in charge.Joe Biden has also said he'll veto the effort because of course. ...It's almost as if giving emergency powers like this is bad and there's a reason we need checks and balances in the system.Once you give someone power they won't ever willingly give it up.So, here we are.Just be patient. Just another 1,000 days to slow the spread. Then they'll give the power right back!
