    From Citizen Free press article;
    ‘Hyperprogressive’ Cancers Due to COVID Vaccine-Caused IgG4 Antibodies
    Antibodies from the IgG4 subclass turbocharge existing cancers. NOV 26, 2023

    SUMMARY: mRNA COVID vaccines, previously not used outside of small laboratory animal studies, were given to billions of people after perfunctory and rushed clinical trials. As scientists learned in 2022, mRNA vaccines cause a ‘class switch’ to IgG4 antibodies. Another study found that this specific antibody subclass is associated with more aggressive cancer growth and causes hyperprogressive cancer disease in mice and humans.

      The part that has always stymied me and probably always will is, how in the world do people trust this rotten assed gov’t in something as important as the maintenance of your own body?

      Over and over and over again, thousands of times over, this criminal gov’t has demonstrated BIG that it is untrustworthy, unaccountable, irresponsible, more frequently wrong than right, and perpetuates vast criminality on a global scale of unimaginable magnitude but in light of all of that there are still people running loose out there that do it’s bidding at the drop of a hat.

      Female humans and people at large, in spite of having studied them at great depth for over half a century, are still mostly a mystery to me.

    Here’s but a teeny sliver of what I mentioned in my reply to Joe Krill.

    Links at the bottom.
    Over at WRSA Pete mentions Biden implementing another series of laws pertaining to the silly idea of “gun violence”. (no gun anywhere, at any time, has ever committed violence) He provides a link to the whitehouse website where the wall of text drones on and on about this that and everything in between. Bloviating. It mentions the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act”. The 3rd link below reduces it to just 3 pages (pdf format) and after digesting all of it, again, I sit here balling my fists.

    Suffice to say, biden and his minions just do not give a shit about the citizenry. They only give a shit about power and politics. Nothing in that “act” will change anything for the better and may indeed make things worse. If a president was to be serious about the violence in the US (not that silly assed gun violence) he would stand at the podium in the middle of the oval office on primetime TV and announce that henceforth ALL existing laws pertaining to violence in all forms would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, no exceptions, ever. Then, he would walk right over and snap the cuffs on his own criminal son. If he then turned and snapped the cuffs on hitlery he would secure the next election. But common sense has been replaced in this country with every form of criminality and deviancy you can imagine and my pipe dream will just vanish in the wind….

    Them Wrens

    It warmed to the 40’s today so my wife decided to jump on the Christmas decorations she always installs on the front porch. There are 2 large hanging flower baskets under the beam that supports the porch roof and she has a large assortment of seasonal and holiday flowers and foliage she switches out and today it was the Christmas theme flowers that she installed. And, for more than 10 years now we have had multiple family’s of Wrens occupying those hanging baskets. They get down in the guts of the flowers and have tunnels in there where they hunker down on winter nights.

    I was out here working in my detached office oblivious to what she had been doing this afternoon. Then later on she sent me the following email.

    “The wrens got upset with me this afternoon, when I was taking the fall flowers out of the hanging planters on the porch. They were chattering angrily at me, but I tried not to disturb their nests in the planters. Then at 5:25 this evening, when they were ready to head to bed, they kept jumping into the planters, chattering and hissing, then they’d jump onto the porch rail and bob along it, with their tails straight up in the air, still having a hissy fit. And THEN they jumped onto the back of your chair and looked through the front window at me (where I was standing, watching them) and they continued to raise a ruckus, chipping and chattering and scolding me for messing up their sleep havens. I don’t know if they ever did settle down in their planters after that. Poor things!”

    They’ve suffered worse, I’m sure, over the duration when I’ve had numerous outside remodeling projects going on, new decks, railings, etc. Paslode Impact nailguns, circular saws, drills, chainsaws, etc. In spite of all that racket they still call our front porch home. Them silly wrens.

    2 of the neighbors have already emailed my wife and told her how nice the porch looks.

    Crazy Stuff

    Never seen that done before!
    Yeah, it was kinda crowded, but they got it done.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Henry Kissinger.

    Say all the shit you want to say. He. Ended. The. Vietnam. War.

    I have to say that every article he wrote had resonance with me. Recently he argued that if Russia loses its place at the international table, this will be a detriment to the world order.

    Argue that, bish. I dare you.

    He was a great diplomat and I’m only more solid in my opinion because of how hard he’s being vilified by the lower opinionators online. Idiots.

    • ghostsniper November 30, 2023, 3:47 AM

      He sponged off the taxpayers most of his life, and some find that respectful.
      Where’s that reset when you need it?

  • Anne November 30, 2023, 8:42 AM

    Sorry gentle people–IMHO Kissinger loved Paris and decided to stay. He accomplished that by turning peace negotiations into a “cottage industry”! We have no affection for him here in this house!

  • Casey Klahn November 30, 2023, 10:11 AM

    Up is down and down is up. If you’re a peacemaker you’re actually a war profiteer. If you fight naughtzies and free Jews, you’re a fascist.

    I haven’t liked a SecState since maybe the past 20 years and probably longer. They make better doorstops than executives, IMO. But, there was a time when shit got done and men filled these positions.

    In hindsight, I might think that opening Xhina was a bad mistake, but we need generations and good historians to sort that out. It was, however, an amazing accomplishment.

    Given that we speaking of corrupt leaders born into great wealth in the San Francisco Bay area, I would like to offer for your consideration this guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_McNamara

    Just sayin. We were on the Berkeley campus several years ago and McNamara was schedule to speak to a small, perfectly chosen group. We saw him arrive in his bullet proof Bentley–you can always tell if they are bullet proof! He was supposed to be living in the DC area at that time. Question: how did he get that car(tank) to Berkeley? I will just assume one of his homes is in the bay area and one of this cars is stashed there!
    Oh. Some of you may remember his control/influence over the VietNam war

    • Casey Klahn November 30, 2023, 1:41 PM

      The McNamara who was for decades the worst SecDef the USA ever had, now replaced by GEN Austin. It was hard to take that crown away but possibly the current letter to the troops who were riffed for vax non-compliance is one of many, many reasons we despise Austin.

      Your story reminds me of the time I was passing the local AF base and overhead in a landing glide appeared that big blue bird, Air Force One! It was either carrying Obama or was otherwise employed in the greater task of hide the POTUS. I had chills going down my spine.

  • Anne November 30, 2023, 1:30 PM

    And then, just to be sure the gals are also represented in this conversation about corrupt officials from the San Francisco area (Stanford/Berkeley), let’s have a look at Diane.

  • Snakepit Kansas December 1, 2023, 4:35 AM

    Austin is a lackey going along with everything he is told while holding a strait face. US Army Special Forces celebrating pride week, yeah that really improves our mission effectiveness. Milley had aspirations of greatness in politics but was smart enough to see that was not going to be the next king. At what point do accomplished men simply resign instead of going along with something they don’t believe in, then complain about it later? We have a president who is on the take along with a big chunk of his family, everybody knows it without any plausible deniability, and the press yawns. Top it off with Biden complaining that corporations are price gouging and that is what is causing inflation. That is the insipid logic we hear from communist dictators. Who write this tripe to be repeated by Biden?

    Sorry folks but this should be my last comment on this issue as it has become obvious that I’ll have to cancel the Chase credit card and find one from a different provider.
    It’s what I’ve heard from others that Chase is the only bank that will not refund the charges made in February 2023 by NewAmericanDigest.
    Nor will they confirm or identify who they corresponded with in Sept 2023 that indicated it was a valid transaction. They only tell me to contact the owner of the blog, which tells me no one there is listening.
    Nor will they assure me that any new transactions will not be honored and charged to the new card number as this one was. Incredible, totally insane business practice. And from the sound of the voices I’m talking to children on the other end of the line.
    From here I’ll be setting up a new card and see about filing a complaint with the Mass Attorney Generals office of consumer fraud.
    Next call is to Amazon about why they sent me three Laserjet toner cartridges instead of three Britta filters. (They charged me for britta filters not toner so at least this time I’m coming out ahead)

    • John the River December 1, 2023, 8:08 AM

      One interesting piece of info, I found out that the date the charge against my card was made was when Gerard’s obit was published.

      • Snakepit Kansas December 1, 2023, 4:30 PM

        We all know it is fraud, no need to provide additional evidence. Good for you. Cancel the card. Never comply, never acquiesce. You may not get total satisfaction but you don’t have to go along with a service provider that is giving you the finger. Try Discover, they took the charge off with one call.
