Did someone say weekend? Really, the whole image sets the mood:
Sunset on the beach may well lead to:
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka
- 1/2 ounce peach schnapps
- 1/2 ounce Chambord or creme de cassis (optional)
- 1 1/2 ounces orange juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 1/2 ounces cranberry juice
- Garnish: cocktail umbrella
- Add the vodka, peach schnapps, Chambord (if using), orange juice and cranberry juice to a shaker with ice and shake.
- Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice.
- Garnish with a cocktail umbrella.
Back in the lifeguarding days, we called version of this Tornado Jimmies. Jimmy…what a guy.
Okay, this week:
When it rains, it pours. Thursday, it poured.
Debt vs Autonomy by Dr. Malone:
If you occasionally experience a vague sense that you are being intentionally controlled via indebtedness, you should probably listen to that internal voice. To illustrate with examples from the present, the most common explanation for why physicians have not spoken up about the weaponization and manipulation of public health information and policies during the “Coronacrisis” is that they are deeply indebted due to the loans taken out to enable their extended and expensive education, and have no practical choice other than to comply with the mandates imposed on them by government, insurance agencies, and their host institutions (academic or private hospital chains). They have a profound financial conflict of interest- comply or go bankrupt. In large part, the physicians and medical scientists who have spoken up about the compromised medical ethics, regulatory standards, mis- and disinformation propagated by governments and WHO (including intentionally withheld or manipulated medical and epidemiological information) have been financially independent, often senior with high status or established independent medical practices, or otherwise have been decoupled from mechanisms or institutions which have been weaponized to force compliance with centralized edicts. In other words, the majority of those who have spoken out have freedom to speak BECAUSE they are (relatively) financially independent.
Interesting tidbit about the pilots vs. the airlines:
“Fundamentally, this case is about whether Americans should be required to choose between their livelihoods and being coerced into taking an experimental, dangerous medical treatment,” reads the lawsuit (pdf).
Plaintiffs are mostly unvaccinated pilots, flight attendants, as well as other Atlas staff.
“It is also about the safety of America’s airline industry. Should pilots—under federal regulation required to be among the healthiest workers in the United States—who have taken an experimental ‘vaccine’ that is now shown to have potentially deadly, long-term side effects, be allowed to fly massive aircraft in our skies? While those who have (smartly) refrained from such a course be forced out of their jobs?” it states.
Atlas Air is one of the industry’s largest cargo carrier companies and the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 747 aircraft.
The law firm was founded by Att. John Pierce, who founded the National Constitutional Law Union. He previously represented George Papadopoulos in connection with the 2016 “Russia Hoax,” reaching a dismissal of the DNC’s case and helping secure a presidential pardon. He is also currently representing defendants being charged in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.
“So the complaint has been filed. We’re in the process of serving everyone. And then, we’ll likely be looking for some kind of injunctive relief here soon to make sure that all the COVID-related mandates stop immediately. And then we’ll proceed [with] litigation, motion, practice, and discovery and then onward to trial eventually,” Pierce told The Epoch Times.
This week, John Pierce Law plans to file another lawsuit against United Airlines.
“We’ll be hitting basically all of them in sequence, and then we’ll be going after the FAA as well. We’re gonna get these vaccine mandate type of rules and COVID restrictions ruled unconstitutional. And we’re gonna get findings that there was discrimination under Title Seven. We’re gonna get punitive damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress and things like that,” Pierce said.
“It’s going to require a big fix, ultimately. And that’s probably going to require legislation and kind of getting all the stakeholders at the table, but the first step is civil litigation.”
Airlines, which are government contractors, are affected by President Joe Biden’s order from September of last year that states all employees of those companies have to be vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party virus.
Pierce said that as soon as he heard about the airline mandates he predicted that it would be the next big wave of litigations.
“[These lawsuits are] absolutely crucial. It’s a very, very red line—If you get to the point where you have to choose between getting an experimental drug shot in your arm and your paycheck, that’s just unAmerican, it’s unconstitutional, it’s outrageous, it’s sickening.”
“If that’s not the hill to die on when it comes to liberty, that’s about as close as I can imagine it,” Pierce said.
Josh Yoder, a major airline pilot and a spokesperson for Freedom Flyers who recently supported the trucker-led “The People’s Convoy,” says that there has been harassment, threats, intimidation, vaccine injuries, and even “suicides that have come out of these mandates.”
“We’re not doing class action. We’re doing individual litigants. And the reason we’re doing it that way is because so many people have been harmed and people have experienced different levels of harm. We have the unvaccinated who have been harassed, threatened, and intimidated into getting vaccinated. Then we have many people as well who got vaccinated against their will, who were coerced and forced into doing it under threat of losing their employment,” Yoder said.
“And then, in addition, we have the vaccine-injured, and the numbers of vaccine-injured are growing by the day,” Yoder went on, “It’s just incredible what’s happening with pilots.”
Our own P-Rex had a good one yesterday. Pay attention. This is important:
I want to remind you guys of a few FACTS. FACTS that are NOT being mentioned in this.
1) yep the info came from Hillary (WHERE did she get it?)
2) yep the FBI KNEW that Sussman worked for Hillary (they want you to naively believe that the FBI did NOT know this..it is their JOB to know, it is called VETTING a source, and it is the FIRST thing you do, Sussman was an FBI informant, as was Joffe. They KNOW them and what they were doing and for WHO)
3) The info on Alfa was manufactured (Joffe and Jean Camp) as part of a BROADER narrative. Now what was the impetus FOR that broader narrative? Of course it was the “Steele” Dossier. EVERYTHING the Cabal did was based on the predicate that that document was TRUE, and they were ALL trying to get ANY shred of evidence to vindicate, propagate, and prop UP the “Steele” dossier This was but ONE track on a multifaceted attack by MULTIPLE agencies including FOREIGN ones.
4) The BROADER narrative, and what STARTED it and WHO REALLY created it, for WHOM and WHY is what the FBI, MSM, and the Cabal are DESPERATELY trying to STILL hide.
5) Durham is ON this. Sussman, I bet WILL be tabbed as the fall guy, but WILL skate because of the leftist judge. BET on it. That IGNORES this important FACT Someone paid for the “Steele” dossier to be created. Someone went to a LOT of trouble and expense to propagate the dossier. Someone had ENOUGH political clout plus AUTHORITY to make 17 govt agencies, plus FOREIGN govt’s to buy all in on this farce, AND to prop it up at ALL costs. Hillary also bought the dossier, but was she the FIRST REQUESTOR or the benefactor of the highest bid? WHO was the seller?
This started in the NSA, FBI and CIA, but was NOT limited to those agencies ALONE.
That’s where we are today, as the world’s 1% of the 1% celebrate their own magnificence in Davos and plot mankind’s future without even the pretense of seeking mankind’s consultation, let alone permission. “The future is not just happening,” Schwab proclaimed to his SPECTRE-like cabal in Switzerland. “The future is built by us, by a powerful community such as you here in this room.” “Good German” Klaus and his merry band of global gentry have decided to take over the planet, and they’re so confident in their endeavors that they no longer deign to pretend otherwise. Yep, here are our New World Order master plans! Yes, we know we’ve called you guys “conspiracy theory nuts” for forty years, but you were right. In hindsight, wasn’t it obvious?
So now the world waits in trepidation to discover just what Kaiser Klaus and his new nobility have in store for the rest of us. Will another paralyzing round of viral pandemics bring a return of economic lockdowns, rigid population control, and injection mandates? Will a global cyber-attack cut off the internet for billions and plunge the world into darkness? Will Green New Steal socialism exacerbate global poverty, unleash famine, and trigger mass population die-offs? Whatever happens next, the WEF has already gamed the situation and is ready to profit from the world’s pain.
In another era, World Economic Forum attendees would be rounded up and put on trial for undermining the health and security of sovereign nations. Heck, if people properly understood the WEF as an evil engine for driving Marxist totalitarianism around the planet, they might skip the trials and go straight to the sentencing.
The Build Back Better plan superficially appears to be an updated and extravagant Keynesian or New Deal-style spending program, but the endgame is not economic recovery that forever establishes federal government dominance over the states in the socio-political realm. Rather, this BBB is the connection of an enlarged federal government and authority with a depreciation or elimination of U.S. sovereignty in favor of global, communist-style governance. But as if the endgame were not sinister enough, we see this updated Keynesian expansion of expenditures is not a result of economic collapse due to a devastating Depression, as was the justification in the 1930s.
Rather, simultaneously with expanded spending, the goal of the BBB plotters is to weaken the economy and usher in economic and socio-political chaos and mayhem. The southern border hands-off policy is literally facilitating the entrance of millions of unvetted persons. By limiting or eliminating natural gas and oil production in the territorial U.S. under the guise of protecting the environment, the feds incentivize other countries to expand their production of these energy sources. That production, which still means higher energy prices here in the U.S., has an equally negative effect on the world climate as fuel production in our country. But the brooding minds behind BBB want to see inflated prices. They want to see shortages. They want to see racial unrest. They want to see upsurges in crime as new theories of law inform the release of repeat offenders and shorter sentences to destabilize society. The BBB autocrats want to see a society that increasingly identifies as LGBTQ because this radical individualism weakens the social fabric. They want to see Chinese fentanyl imported to kill our citizens who are weak-minded and susceptible to drug use.
Thus, despite its resemblance to the New Deal, the BBB’s so-called governance (properly called betrayal) is at the front end linked to global health, green initiatives, and “interdependence” as an excuse for diminishing U.S. sovereignty. Initiation of these policies was not to combat financially depressive conditions but rather designed to undermine the freedoms and economic viability of the U.S. This might be likened to prescribing chemo to a patient who did not have cancer, and then, in order to justify the perverse treatment plan, injecting the patient with cancer cells in order to justify that plan.
And Marco Rubio has something to say about it.
Starbucks walked from Russia, but not China. Hmmm….

9And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent; 10for I am with you, and no man shall attack you to harm you; for I have many people in this city.” 11And he stayed a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. 12But when Gallio was proconsul of Acha’ia, the Jews made a united attack upon Paul and brought him before the tribunal, 13saying, “This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law.” 14But when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, “If it were a matter of wrongdoing or vicious crime, I should have reason to bear with you, O Jews; 15but since it is a matter of questions about words and names and your own law, see to it yourselves; I refuse to be a judge of these things.” 16And he drove them from the tribunal. 17And they all seized Sos’thenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the tribunal. But Gallio paid no attention to this. 18After this Paul stayed many days longer, and then took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aq’uila. At Cen’chre-ae he cut his hair, for he had a vow.
1Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! 2For the LORD, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth. 3He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. 4He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. [Selah] 5God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. 6Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
20Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. 21When a woman is in travail she has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a child is born into the world. 22So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. 23In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.
This is why I have no social life.
Have a great weekend.
