John Ward is an all round good bloke and a great writer although I disagree with him on Brexit. I also disagree with him on why the Queen was not wearing her crown for her speech.
I think she wasn’t wearing her crown because she was not allowed to. Britain is not a sovereign nation but is owned by the bribers and blackmailers who run the USA. They have all the filth on Prince Andrew and no doubt on others of the Firm.May 13, 2021 at 4:49 pm #75204zerosumParticipant

Work Hard, Smart and with a Sense of Urgency. The word hustle means that you work hard. It means that you work hard every single day. Hustle to find work.
Been there don that.
Today child labor laws would put your parent in trouble.
Cannot find workers …. why
Its not just about money. Experience means that you can prove that you are capable of doing the job and are willing to do the job.
I saw a want add sign today saying.
I remember, Recent going rate was +$ 35.00/hr
Been there done that.
Too bad, I’m not available. I’m retired.
There are +11 million people out of work in the USA.
There are not enough experienced workers.
If unemployment benefits are cut then welfare will pick up the slack.
Employers will not give jobs to people who cannot do the work.
Employers cannot afford to train people.
Employers will need to wait until the gov. pays for that training.May 13, 2021 at 4:53 pm #75205
Trying to leave out what y’all already saw…
Matt Taibbi follows up with what appears to be the complete victory of the deep state, upon obtaining ownership of the free-press, or imprisoning those not-for-sale:
Fast forward seven years. Julian Assange is behind bars, and may die there. Snowden is in exile in Russia. Brennan, Clapper, and Hayden have been rehabilitated and are all paid contributors to either MSNBC or CNN, part of a wave of intelligence officers who’ve flooded the airwaves and op-ed pages in recent years, including the FBI’s Asha Rangappa, Clint Watts, Josh Campbell, former counterintelligence chief Frank Figliuzzi and former deputy director Andrew McCabe, the CIA’s John Sipher, Phil Mudd, Ned Price, and many others…
After the Capitol riots of January 6th, the War on Terror came home, and “domestic extremists” stepped into the role enemy combatants played before. George Bush once launched an all-out campaign to pacify any safe haven for trrrsts, promising to “smoke ‘em out of their holes.” The new campaign is aimed at stamping out areas for surveillance-proof communication*, which CNN security analyst and former DHS official Juliette Kayyem described as any online network “that lets [domestic extremists] talk amongst themselves.” (*Formerly, “freedom of speech”)
Reporters pledged assistance, snooping for evidence of wrongness in digital rather than geographical “hidey holes.”
Pepe Escobar on Ukrainian situation. [Zelensky, Talk To Putin!]
Leaked info on the closed-door meeting between Blinken and Comedian-in-Charge Zelensky is no less than incandescent. Blinken seemed to have read a no holds barred riot act.
Here are the guidelines. All Ukrainian state corporations must be controlled by the proverbial “foreign interests”. So board majorities must be either foreign or 5th columnists. The entire anti-corruption vertical drive must also be foreign-controlled. Same for the judicial system.
Andriy Kobolyev – an American asset – must be reinstated as head of Naftogaz. Zelensky moved mountains to get rid of Kobolyev.
Blinken demanded a massive push against every Ukrainian oligarch, so that huge chunks of Ukrainian economy are transferred to – who else – foreigners. Same for land privatization.
Somewhat hilariously, Blinken warned that Russian troops might invade Ukraine. In this case, Zelensky can count only on huge political assistance, not military. So Zelensky in fact was ordered to stop asking to join NATO and cease provoking Russia, as President Putin, who already drew red lines, could make a “drastic decision”.
Blinken demanded that American assets should be untouchable by Ukrainian law, and named honored figures of civil society. Maidan cookie distributor Victoria “F**k the EU” Nuland, also in the room, drew up a list of The Untouchables, and Blinken met with them separately.
Finally, the giant ghost hanging over the whole trip to Kiev had to make itself known. In practice, Zelensky was invited to turn in everyone in Ukraine who helped bring information about Hunter Biden to the media via Rudolph Giuliani.
Making the world safe for the Devil.

Another COVID-19 media darling bites the dust. Reason using reason?
“Cooke disproves many of her claims, which have evolved substantially over time: Jones lacked the power to alter the “raw” numbers and was never asked to do so; indeed, by her own admission, the data she cites on her separate dashboard are identical to the government’s. Initially, Jones had “not alleged any tampering with data on deaths, hospital symptom surveillance, hospitalizations for COVID-19, numbers of new confirmed cases, or overall testing rates—core elements of any assessment of the outbreak and of federal criteria for reopening,” according to the Associated Press. “And Jones acknowledges Florida has been relatively transparent—for which she herself claims some credit—and relatively successful in controlling the pandemic.” But over time, her story became dramatic and elaborate: She accused Shamarial Roberson, Florida’s deputy secretary for health, of being a “liar, fraud, and murderer.”May 13, 2021 at 11:37 pm #75219WESParticipant
The Phoenix vote audit is revealing so much skulduggery that the Arizona senate is requesting that county officials now appear publically before senate committees. This will make it harder for county officials to hide in the woodwork and remain unknown.
As expected lots of vote data has been erased so we know funny business happened just not who did it. Of course in the end none of this will change anything we already know. Nobody will be booted out of office. It will just confirm the election was rigged. It is just theatre.May 13, 2021 at 11:41 pm #75220WESParticipant

So, now if you’re vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask, says Joe:
Here’s my take on this: they’ll ride this horse for a while to try and pull in people who are on the fence about vaccination. Meanwhile this will turn into further justification for businesses and sporting events and all manner of public gatherings to enforce “let’s see your vaccination card or wear your mask” policies at the entrances. This in turn will spur a great many people who don’t want the vaccine to make their own phony paper vaccination cards to evade the policy… and that will lead to their desired endgame: “We have to have a digital vaccine passport that can’t be forged.” Checkmate and match.May 14, 2021 at 1:52 am #75222my parents said knowParticipant

“If you’re vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask.” This makes no sense according to the rationale for universal mask-wearing we were given. UMW was supposed to be about protecting other people, not oneself, and the vaccines do not stop one from being a possible virus-transmitter. So why should vaccinated people be allowed to go maskless, unless, of course, the whole thing was a bunch of bullshit from the get-go???May 14, 2021 at 2:05 am #75224

It was the knee-jerk Madison Lefty in me that couldn’t stand sick people not getting the medicine they need. (And keep in mind that in Ivermectin, we’re talking about a standard pharmaceutical drug, not something culturally controversial like medicinal cannabis, which probably never would have even become a thing if cannabis weren’t so damn good at helping with so damn many problems!)
I’ll shut up now, I’m careening off on tangents too much.May 14, 2021 at 3:09 am #75228absolute galoreParticipant
The no mask for the vaccinated is just another pressure ploy to increase the vaccination count and at the same time, as pointed out, make it seem perfectly logical to have vaccine passports. And don’t expect sympathy or understanding from the vaxxed.
So ridiculously stupidly un-“scientific” and false. I will be forced to wear a mask at work, while everyone else does not have to–yet if I worked in the Yankee dugout, I would be almost guaranteed to get Covid–from a vaxxed coach or player. This just furthers my resolve that they are so blatantly full of bs. Holy crap.
Here’s the way it is: You are vaccinated. Hurray! Now you don’t have to worry about anything other than getting hit by the proverbial bus. I am not vaccinated. I will take my chances, and I will stay home if I feel ill or have a temp.Even if I were asymptomatic (perhaps the high rate was more about high PCR cycles?) you would not be susceptible to falling sick. Unless your vaccine is running out. Better mask up!May 14, 2021 at 7:21 am #75229oxymoronParticipant
