The Patriot Digest - vol. 5



Here are some recent news stories that you may not have seen...

 

There are jokes and memes mocking anyone who praises the use of the medicine as a therapeutic treatment for COVID-19. I saw several similar to this: “Look at those uneducated rubes lining up at the feed store to buy horse paste.” Even the Washington Post took a "shot"...



Just as quick background information, Ivermectin was developed in the 1970’s as a veterinary medicine for anti-parasitic treatment of animals. But since 1988, it has been prescribed for humans to combat other diseases like Yellow Fever and Dengue Fever. It was later added to the WHO’s list of essential drugs in 2015. Also, in 2015, Ivermectin’s inventors were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine. There are many studies showing the effectiveness of Ivermectin as a therapeutic for COVID-19.


But the media has chosen to ignore one of the biggest pandemic news stories in the world--the fact that Ivermectin has saved MILLIONS of lives in India, Brazil, and Peru. It hasn’t been reported here because it doesn’t fit the government and Big-Pharma narrative.


Well, this may explain why.


It turns out that Pfizer is working on a COVID-19 therapeutic pill that looks remarkably like…guess what? Ivermectin. Could it be that we just need to “follow the money” instead of the science? Pfizer has made BILLIONS on their vaccine, and they stand to make billions more on the booster shots. So, can we not assume that a Pfizer therapeutic drug with similar properties to Ivermectin will be their next cash cow? Some are saying that a good name for the new pill might be “Pfizermectin.”


 

When it comes to incentivizing people to get the COVID-19 vaccine jab, many things have been tried: cash, gift cards, concert tickets, free food, free beer, free donuts, and lottery tickets.


But now that the Biden administration has ordered businesses to require that their employees be vaccinated, some companies have flipped strategies.

If you are an employee of these companies, and you’ve been vaccinated but you have a spouse or domestic partner who is NOT vaccinated, you will be punished with a $200/month fine. Ochsner Health System, Louisiana’s largest healthcare system, will begin this program in 2022.


What was once an incentive will now be a recurring tax. Where do we draw the line?

 



But wait, there's more!


After Dr. Fauci made that pronouncement, he flip-flopped yet again after receiving backlash. He now says that, IF you're vaccinated, you can have a "good, normal Christmas."


And this just in...


Despite what Dr. Fauci says, the CDC has issued new safety guidelines for the upcoming holidays.


Guidelines for the vaccinated:

  1. Hold socially distanced gatherings outdoors.

  2. Wear masks.

  3. If you're inside, open doors and windows and put FANS in windows to blow air out of the house.

  4. If you're driving, only go short distances with as few stops as possible.

  5. If you're flying, do it with as few layovers as possible.

Guidelines for the unvaccinated:

  1. Get vaccinated.

  2. Maybe don't go.

Is anybody following this?


I just have to ask...when is a vaccine NOT a vaccine?

 

One unintended positive consequence of the rift between the vaccinated and unvaccinated is that it will save families money this holiday season since you won't have to buy gifts for your unvaccinated family members.


A recent Harris poll found that over HALF of vaccinated individuals surveyed feel "major discomfort" at the thought of holiday gatherings with the un-vaxxed. 42% said they have already cancelled travel plans to avoid unvaccinated family members.


Have yourself a merry little Christmas...


 

We’ve been seeing a lot of media coverage about the infighting in Congress over the infrastructure bills, reconciliation and debt limits. Democrats hold a majority in the House of Representatives, but a minority in the Senate.


Two Democrats, Sen. Krysten Sinema (AZ) and Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) are holding out on voting in favor of the $3.5 TRILLION infrastructure bill. In fact, Sen. Manchin called the spending bill fiscal insanity.”


However, one senator is having difficulty figuring out simple math. Self-described socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted thattwo senators cannot be allowed to defeat what 48 senators and 210 House members want.” Uh...sorry, Bernie. You're forgetting the other 50 senators. It’s 52 senators who don't want what the other 48 want--not just two!


How can we let something so pesky as democracy get in the way of what Bernie wants?

 

There is talk in D.C. about a “work around” for all the Congressional squabbling about raising the debt limit so the U.S. can pay its bills.


The solution? Mint a $1 TRILLION dollar coin!



Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that some senior Democrat representatives are championing the idea. A law passed in 1997 would permit the President to bypass Congress and order the Treasury Secretary to mint a platinum coin that would be deposited in the Federal Reserve to pay the bills. The Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, would have the authority to value the coin at her discretion.


So why aim low? Why stop at $1 TRILLION? Why not $1 BAZILLION? Go big or go home, as they say.


So, the next time the balance in your checkbook is too low to pay your bills, take a quarter, go to the bank and tell them you’d like to deposit a trillion dollars. Wonder how that’ll work out?


p.s. The Biden administration has stated that, although they HAVE considered minting the coin, it’s off the table…at least for now.

 

The late, great Johnny Carson once quipped, “Mail your packages early so the post office can lose them in time for Christmas.”


Well, we might be seeing how true that joke really is. The United States Post Master General, Louis DeJoy, announced that they would be SLOWING down mail service as a cost-saving measure.


DeJoy said, "We are confident we are headed in the right direction, which is slightly away from what we have done in the past, which has not worked."


Meanwhile, at your local post office:



 

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Do you know the definition of the phrase “political theater?”


It is defined as political posturing, or a publicity stunt used to sway public opinion.


Well, we had a perfect example of political theater this week when Joe Biden received his third COVID vaccine jab, a/k/a the “booster.”


Here’s the picture of what we all saw on mainstream and social media.



BUT....we can’t just have a picture of Joe getting jabbed by a nurse in the Oval Office.


We must build an entire stage and set in an auditorium, complete with fake windows, trees, and scenery.



 

Grocery stores are beginning to see empty shelves. Restaurants are closing dining rooms and reducing their hours. Britain is experiencing fuel shortages. Cargo ships anchored off the Los Angeles and New York coasts are facing a 4-week delay in unloading; and the entire global supply chain is at risk of collapse.


This problem is the result of businesses being unable to fill job openings. Some say it’s the result of the pandemic. Others say it’s because the Biden administration's welfare policies pay more for people to stay home than they would earn at a job.


But, since we’re all in the same boat and face some tough times ahead, I thought I could lighten the mood with a throw-back song from 1970, and at the same time, offer an idea to help employers jumpstart their hiring policies.


The song is entitled “Signs” by the Five Man Electrical Band. If you don’t remember it, you can listen to it here:



The first stanza of the lyric is:


And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"

So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why

He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"

So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"


Maybe instead of employers posting signs that say, “Now Hiring” or “Help Wanted,” they should post a sign that reads:

Thank you Dale, another great posting! You give us so much Information that I know you investigate for authenticity before publishing! One thing that stands out is paying someone to stay home which makes absolutely no sense!! The 3.5 trillion infrastructure bill is absolutely insane and I am praying those who are against it will stand their ground! I loved the “Signs” song, it certainly lightened the mood for me!
