Now for the end-of-week stuff

before I fall over.

I haven't had a chance to watch but a couple of minutes, but a good video on the 1863 New Model Cavalry Carbine

Including a .52 caliber bullet going through a gel block.

Appropriately, the lefts hero Fauci is a lying bastard *

Today the Australian published a story resurfacing the fact that in 2012 Dr Fauci argued that the benefits of gain-of-function research outweighed any risk of a laboratory accident, or worse, that could spark an international pandemic. In a paper, Fauci wrote, ‘Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario — however remote — should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision? Scientists working in this field might say — as indeed I have said — that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.’

Of course these revelations do not directly link Dr Fauci to any experiments done at the Wuhan Institute. But they do however raise more questions about the extent of his knowledge of what gain-of-function research was taking place and of any funds going to China, either directly or indirectly from the United States. Fauci had said that no grant money went to any gain-of-function research in China, but has since backtracked on that claim saying that he has no way of knowing what’s happening in the labs in China.

"Well, yes, but I had no way of knowing about what they were doing!"  Sure.

*Yes, I wrote about this earlier; it really pisses me off

Wonder if Pres. Gropey's handlers have just given up,

or if letting him do this crap is their way of showing contempt for the peasants?
President Joe Biden raised eyebrows — and a few alarms — Friday when he lavishly complimented a little girl on her appearance during remarks at a Virginia military base.

“I love those barrettes in your hair, man,” Biden said. “I tell you what, look at her, she looks like she’s 19 years old, sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.”

The girl in question, who appeared to be elementary school age, had joined her parents and two older brothers on the podium while her mother introduced the president at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia.

'Lavishly complimented'.  

Hunter landed right at the base of the tree and stayed there, didn't he?

And once more that we know of that Fauci has lied. Including under oath.

Makes you wonder how often this clown bothers to tell the truth.
In a Department of Homeland Security Senate hearing in April 2012 on ‘Biological Security: The Risk of Dual-Use Research’, Dr Anthony Fauci admitted that the National Institute of Health partnered with the Department of Defense on controversial dual-use research projects.

As I recall, isn't lying to Congress supposed to be a Bad Thing?  Or is it no problem for favored bureaucrats and corrupt FBI agents?

Ah, such a fun week it's been

Short version: Dad had a setback and is back in a hospital, going to be moved to a new rehab place for another two weeks, which hopefully will help the situation a lot.

So we'll see what happens tomorrow, when I start with an early PT session followed by a joyous day at work.

Well, Comrade Mayor & Co. are communists, so.

"It’s like what Hamas does with human shields," one parent born in China said. "Immigrants recognize in Teens Take Charge the Soviet Youth and the Chinese Red Guard."

The result has been a feeling of powerlessness among parents and administrators, who fear that going against the youth group could jeopardize their careers. "You can’t debate children," Deborah Alexander, a Queens parent-leader, told the Washington Free Beacon. "Nobody wants to attack a child."

It isn’t children who are setting the agenda, though; it’s adults plugged into the education department.

"We don't care if this screws your kids future, there will be Equity!"

I cannot argue with Ace's take on Fauci & Co.:

The propaganda media is trying to change the story from "Fauci Lied" to "Fox News Host Disgracefully Suggests That Admitted Liar Fauci May Have Been Lying Again."

But that's not going to work.

You motherfuckers sold this lie for a year.

You own it.

"But it's racism leftists approve of, so it's all good!"

Vaccine passports, that is.
Passports will inevitably privilege white people over people of color. Whites will be advantaged for travel, for attendance at sporting events or even government functions open only to passport holders. And as CNN's report above indicates, whites will be massively over-privileged also for employment and job assignments. Jim Crow could not have thought of a better way to widen the income and social inequality gaps between whites and POCs.

He has some other points, too.

On a personal note,

it was a lousy night.  Which is more than balanced out by Dad being home.  Lots of stuff I need to get done, but some of it will be a pleasure.
