Of course its "non-binary" that's thrown around as an excuse, or perhaps as a "celebration", of what appears to be hard evidence of a felony -- specifically, stealing a rather expensive piece of luggage.
Brinton — who serves as the DOE's deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition — allegedly took a Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport (MSP) on Sept. 16, according to a criminal complaint filed on Oct. 26 in Minnesota state court and obtained by Fox News Digital. Brinton had traveled from Washington, D.C., to MSP that day.
Yes, bags look alike sometimes. But in this case surveillance video shows he removed the owner's tag on the bag while in the airport, so this was hardly a mistake. And further, he denied stealing it when the cops called him.
"There’s been a lot of people who are quite upset that don’t think that I am quite as qualified as others," Brinton told E&E News in October. "I respond with multiple graduate degrees from MIT, a decade of working in nuclear policy and the strongest enthusiasm for working in nuclear waste out of anybody."
Actually my opposition was based on an entirely-different premise: He's nuts, and people who are nuts have no place in our government in sensitive positions, specifically in this case those dealing with highly-dangerous spent nuclear fuel.
Now, months later, my position that he was unfit to be there has been vindicated by this incident.
It's not an accident when you deliberately remove the owner's tag from the luggage while still in the airport and it is caught on camera. While one can argue past transgressions all you'd like this isn't in the past, its in the present and comes after he ascended to the position so in addition it is hard evidence that said person is incapable of policing their own conduct even when they know they are in a position of great public responsibility.
In other words I and others who questioned his fitness, based on his public presentation, have now been proved correct and not only has the Biden administration been proved wrong it has been proved intentionally reckless for appointing him in the first place.
I tire of this crap and you should too.
Musk is "allegedly" going to "release it all" related to Twitter censorship -- on twitter. So he threatened.
He intends to do so no such thing.
Musk is a businessman. So am I. We both have decades of experience.
The only reason you threaten to do something is because you are attempting to use it as leverage to get something else. The technical word for this is extortion and, in certain cases its illegal -- but in others it is a tactic, its legal but you only do it if you don't want to actually do the thing you're threatening to do.
In other words its a manipulation tactic aimed at the other party.
Because if you really intend to fuck up someone's world and you have the goods then you just release it. No warning. Ever. The reason is transparent; the person who you are targeting has no opportunity to try to negotiate, employ some sort of pre-emptive action to head you off, or even come after you in the courts and ask for an injunction (or kill you, if they don't care about the law.) You maximize the outcome by giving no warning of any sort and you wildly increase the odds that the damage served up by your action is maximized.
Nobody who truly intends to redress a wrong or expose someone else's jackassery gives warning first. Ever.
The correct response to someone like Musk who says they're going to "drop a bombshell" is always the same:
Fuck off asshole.
"Trust the plan" was the same sort of horseshit.
Now you're piling in on the same line of crap from Mr. Musk.
Remember Trump promised to (1) release all the data and (2) trash the medical monopolies, never mind (3) "lock her up"? He did none of it. He had the capacity to do so; as President you can declassify and release anything, no matter what it is, and there's nothing anyone can do about it. He can also direct his AG (who he does select, appoint and can fire) to do so. All he did was threaten and you got nothing but a load in your mouth -- and a dead Grandmother when you let him roll all over you "trusting the plan" when a virus showed up.
Now you're back in line for your turn with Musk.
Most of the time I entirely disregard and refuse to comment beyond "you're nuts" when it comes to crazy. Feeding crazy just makes more crazy; as everyone knows whatever you feed you get more of and make it stronger, so the best way to deal with crazy is to ignore it up until the point that it threatens to materially harm or kill you -- then you do whatever you must to stop it, laws be damned.
But this is, in my opinion, an exception to the rule because crazy is insufficient to explain it away and its dangerous to you and others.
I am speaking of the so-called "World Premiere: Died Suddenly" hour-long demonstration of crazy on Rumble.
The presentation starts with an indication that crazy is about to be on display; a rundown of various ridiculous nonsense litters the first minutes, including thinly-veiled attempts to claim, for example, that man never went to the moon. If you're one of the people who believe that then you can stop reading here, because you must figure out where all the Saturn V rockets went, how they managed to launch them all, where the obviously-burned heat shields on the capsules came from on the recovered capsules, that the Service Module on Apollo 13 didn't really blow up and more.
Mixed in are very-well documented facts; "Project Mockingbird" is just one of them. One mark of crazy is to take that which is real and conflate it with that which is flat-out insane, then claim they're both real because one is known to be true. The problem is that this very same thing is also a tactic used by people who are trying to label something that is happening false and the product of deranged minds, that is, crazy, rather than deal with said reality.
What we, at this point know is factual is the following:
Think of it this way, which everyone can relate to: We all know smoking causes lung cancer. My Aunt Marg was a literal chain-smoker at least for as long as I was aware of her, that is, about the back third of her life, and from what I understand she didn't start roughly when I became aware of my surroundings. She died well into her 90s of kidney failure, never being hit with lung cancer.
Yet nobody, despite the fact that she smoked like a coal-fired locomotive, would ever claim that smoking wasn't dangerous even though it didn't kill her personally. Indeed she knew damn well it wasn't good for her but smoked anyway.
The same applies here except that in this case we're putting up with the government doing what the tobacco companies did for decades -- that is, knowingly lying about the safety of these products. Just as the tobacco firms knew smoking was dangerous and yet claimed otherwise the data in this case is actually not just known by the government and pharmaceutical firms its published where anyone who cares to can read it and yet we still permit these lies to be promulgated, promoted and even mandated by various entities.
What's worse is that we're allowing governments to provide liability shields for the peddlers of dangerous products instead of forcing them to defend same in courtrooms when allegations of harm arise.
Wrapping any of the above in a tin foil hat laden load of garbage or ascribing it to a "depopulation agenda" is either the work of someone crazy or its a deliberate attempt to discredit the truth. Which is in operation here I cannot prove but from my point of view it does not matter which it is.
Both are equally dangerous and worthy of scorn at minimum and, if intent can be shown, much worse than simple scorn is called for.
Of course they also buried the lede all the way down to the last paragraphs, but if you take a "booster" or even a primary jab at this point, after reading this, you are not only in a trance your IQ is smaller than your shoe size.
A new preprint study from researchers at Harvard and Yale estimates that 94% of Americans have been infected with the virus that causes Covid-19 at least once, and 97% have been infected or vaccinated, increasing protection against a new Omicron infection from an estimated 22% in December 2021 to 63% by November 10, 2022. Population protection against severe disease rose from an estimated 61% in December 2021 to around 89%, on average, this November.
In simple English:
Now think about this for three seconds and what's obvious is that the jabs only prevented THREE PERCENT of the population from getting the virus. They're worthless; either they didn't work at all or their "protection" waned off so fast that for all intents and purposes you took the risk of using them for no benefit because you got infected anyway.
Less than five percent of those who took the jabs were actually protected from getting the disease. Its worthless.
The so-called "protection from severe disease" is a lie. A vaccine must prevent you from becoming infected and capable of passing the infection to others. If it fails to do that it is not a vaccine; it may be a prophylaxis (that is, something you do to lessen or mitigate the outcome of a potential future event) but it is most-certainly not a "vaccine."
That this was going to happen was something I predicted when we first started working on these because coronaviruses all have highly-mutating "S" (or spike) protein structures. That is why previous attempts to develop a vaccine have all failed; that part of the virus mutates faster than you can change the formulation and deploy it, and if you try to use the "N" protein part in all trials to date against all coronaviruses the imprinting on your immune system is defective and makes the infection worse instead of protecting you.
That latter fact is why the jabs were formulated to be "spike-only", but unfortunately it is the spike that damages the body and that is not unique to Covid either; the same is true for OC43 when one looks at the 1890s pandemic which featured people dying of the same sort of symptoms we saw this time. We then had the Salk paper out in December of 2020 that characterized this damage and tied it directly to the spike protein even in the absence of infection by active virus, which meant by that time we (1) knew what the "agent" in the virus was that would kill if if it did, (2) knew that only severe and fatal infections led to viremia, that is, virus in the circulation, so only such an infection could kill you and thus early treatment to slow down or interrupt replication and defend the lungs directly were the key to success if you were going to do anything at all and finally (3) that deliberately introducing the spike protein into the circulation via a jab was criminally stupid as it was guaranteed to produce some level of injury to the circulatory system in every single person who it was given to.
Now if that injury was a trade-off and accepting it prevented you from getting the virus at all then, if the odds favored the jab, that might still be worth it. But we knew before the jabs rolled out, as the data from the trials showed and Birx admitted, that this was not the case.
Now CNN admits that the jabs do not stop infection or transmission because statistically speaking only four percent of those who got jabbed avoided becoming infected anyway. That is, statistically speaking they are worthless as a "public health" measure in that they do not stop you from getting infected and giving it to others. In fact, to the extent that they reduce symptoms they might make it more likely for you to give the virus to your grandmother and kill her because if symptoms are suppressed you have no idea that you're sick and thus won't stay away from her.
The real "screw you" is that allowing, say much less "forcing" health care workers to take them has killed a huge number of people because by reducing their symptoms they become spreaders of the virus to people who are almost by definition at high risk of a bad outcome. You don't go to the hospital unless you're seriously injured or ill, and healthy people rarely see a doctor either -- while those who are medically frail and thus at crazy-high risk frequent both.
Where is justice for those who pushed this garbage despite all of this being known before it started?
Oh, by the way, they're not even apologizing now and are still trying to push this dangerous and ineffective crap into your arms.
For that they should be indicted, tried, convicted and hanged.
