A Deep Dive Into Those Trump/DOJ Phone Notes (A Pennsylvania Connection)

We'll start with this reporting from the NY Times:

President Donald J. Trump pressed top Justice Department officials late last year to declare that the election was corrupt even though they had found no instances of widespread fraud, so he and his allies in Congress could use the assertion to try to overturn the results, according to new documents provided to lawmakers.

The demands were an extraordinary instance of a president interfering with an agency that is typically more independent from the White House to advance his personal agenda. They are also the latest example of Mr. Trump’s wide-ranging campaign during his final weeks in office to delegitimize the election results.

The exchange unfolded during a phone call on Dec. 27 in which Mr. Trump pressed the acting attorney general at the time, Jeffrey A. Rosen, and his deputy, Richard P. Donoghue, on voter fraud claims that the Justice Department had found no evidence for. Mr. Donoghue warned that the department had no power to change the outcome of the election. Mr. Trump replied that he did not expect that, according to notes Mr. Donoghue took memorializing the conversation.

This is the framing for the (by now famous) takeaway from the notes:

“Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me” and to congressional allies, Mr. Donoghue wrote in summarizing Mr. Trump’s response.

The Washington Post had a similar take:

President Donald Trump pressed senior Justice Department officials in late 2020 to “just say the election was corrupt [and] leave the rest to me” and Republican lawmakers, according to stunning handwritten notes that illustrate how far the president was willing to go to prevent Joe Biden from taking office.
In place of looking at the "leave the rest to me" part, I'd like to focus on the other part of that phrase. Those The Times refers to as "congressional allies" and the Post as "Republican lawmakers."

What do the notes say?

We'll start with the DOJ's position (p. 4 of the notes):


but understand that the DOJ can't + won't snap its fingers + change the outcome of the election, doesn't work that way

Trump answers (p. 4-5 of the notes):


P: "Don't expect you do do that, just say the election was was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen."

Who are "the R. Congressmen" mentioned in the notes?

Well, for the sake of this conversation, it's Scott Perry (PA-10). But he's not the only Pennsylvania politician mentioned in the notes (p. 1 of the notes):


DAG Call - on w/ POTUS + wants to conference me in

P - Country is up in arms over the corruption

Scott Perry (PA) + Senator from PA - Guy Mastriano - some of the (many?) calling

(Since the reference is to a "Senator from PA" it's easy to assume Trump meant State Senator Doug Mastriano rather than Pennsylvania Representative Guy Reschenthaler.)

And this is what Trump was pushing onto the DOJ (p. 1 of the notes):

205K votes - more than they have voters - PA

This was December 27, 2020. On the very next day, December 28, 2020, Pennsylvania State Representative Russ Diamond issued a statement asserting that little bit if misinformation.

A statement easily debunked by December 29, 2020. 

Also on December 28 2020, State Senator Doug Mastriano sent his 5 page letter to Acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue.

WTIF had some interesting things to say about that letter. For example:

Many of the roughly 18 claims in the five-page letter had already been proven wrong by then, or were debunked after Mastriano wrote the letter.

For example, the letter cites a discrepancy between the number of votes counted and the number of people who voted. By the next day, the claim had been debunked: the Department of State said the group had relied on incomplete data from the state’s voter database.


The emails also show Rep. Frank Ryan (R-Lebanon) was also in the mix. He shared a slideshow outlining the misleading voter database claim with U.S. Rep. Scott Perry (R, PA-10) a week before he released it to the public on Dec. 28. Perry then forwarded the slideshow to Justice Department lawyers, referencing a previous discussion he had with Donoghue.

Keep the date in mind as well as the fact that Ryan passed the "205K more votes than voters" to Perry a week before it's mentioned by Trump on that phone call.  

Then there's this (p. 6 of the notes):


- People tell me Jeff Clark is great, I should put him in. 
- People want me to replace DOJ leadership

What's the context on this? Take a look at this from the NYTimes:

The Justice Department’s top leaders listened in stunned silence this month: One of their peers, they were told, had devised a plan with President Donald J. Trump to oust Jeffrey A. Rosen as acting attorney general and wield the department’s power to force Georgia state lawmakers to overturn its presidential election results.

The unassuming lawyer who worked on the plan, Jeffrey Clark, had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results and to bolster Mr. Trump’s continuing legal battles and the pressure on Georgia politicians. Because Mr. Rosen had refused the president’s entreaties to carry out those plans, Mr. Trump was about to decide whether to fire Mr. Rosen and replace him with Mr. Clark.


As Mr. Rosen and the deputy attorney general, Richard P. Donoghue, pushed back, they were unaware that Mr. Clark had been introduced to Mr. Trump by a Pennsylvania politician and had told the president that he agreed that fraud had affected the election results.

A Pennsylvania politician? How interesting. Which Pennsylvania politician could that be?

The NY Times has the answer:

When Representative Scott Perry joined his colleagues in a monthslong campaign to undermine the results of the presidential election, promoting “Stop the Steal” events and supporting an attempt to overturn millions of legally cast votes, he often took a back seat to higher-profile loyalists in President Donald J. Trump’s orbit.

But Mr. Perry, an outspoken Pennsylvania Republican, played a significant role in the crisis that played out at the top of the Justice Department this month, when Mr. Trump considered firing the acting attorney general and backed down only after top department officials threatened to resign en masse.

It was Mr. Perry, a member of the hard-line Freedom Caucus, who first made Mr. Trump aware that a relatively obscure Justice Department official, Jeffrey Clark, the acting chief of the civil division, was sympathetic to Mr. Trump’s view that the election had been stolen, according to former administration officials who spoke with Mr. Clark and Mr. Trump.

Mr. Perry introduced the president to Mr. Clark, whose openness to conspiracy theories about election fraud presented Mr. Trump with a welcome change from the acting attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen, who stood by the results of the election and had repeatedly resisted the president’s efforts to undo them.

Could that be the same Scott Perry listed who is on the first page of those DOJ notes?

Why, yes. Yes it is. His name is right there right after Trump says this:

Don't expect you do do that, just say the election was was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen.

Congressman Perry, exactly what role did you play in pushing the big lie?  Are you the WH source for the 205K more votes than voters lie that Trump tried to push into the DOJ?

And State Senator Mastriano, your state legislative district butts right up against Perry's Congressional District, right?

Since you're listed in the notes like some sort of assistant to Perry, and considering your presence at the Capitol on January 6, your payment for the MAGA-filled buses, we already know you're (at the very least) treason-adjacent, what's your place in all this?

Someone Should Tell State Senator Mastriano (Guidance From The DOJ)

Guidance from the Department of Justice:

The Department is also committed to ensuring that American elections are secure and reflect the choices made on the ballots cast by eligible citizens. “The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history,” according to a Joint Statement issued by federal and state officials and released by the federal Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency. In many jurisdictions, there were automatic recounts or canvasses pursuant to state law due to the closeness of the election results. None of those state law recounts produced evidence of either wrongdoing or mistakes that casts any doubt on the outcome of the national election results.

And after stating that while individual states can establish different methods for their election processes, all of them must adhere to Federal guidelines regarding the retention of the voting records. Then the guidance says:

The Department interprets the Civil Rights Act to require that covered elections records “be retained either physically by election officials themselves, or under their direct administrative supervision.” Federal Prosecution of Elections Offenses at 79. “This is because the document retention requirements of this federal law place the retention and safekeeping duties squarely on the shoulders of election officers.” Id. If a state or local election authority designates some other individual or organization to take custody of the election records covered by Section 301, then the Civil Rights Act provides that the “duty to retain and preserve any record or paper so deposited shall devolve upon such custodian.” 52 U.S.C. § 20701.

Therefore, if the original election official who has custody of records covered by the Act hands over those election records to other officials (for example, to legislators or other officeholders) or the official turns over the records to private parties (such as companies that offer to conduct “forensic examinations”), the Department interprets the Act to require that “administrative procedures be in place giving election officers ultimate management authority over the retention and security of those election records, including the right to physically access” such records. Id. In other words, the obligation to retain and preserve election records remains intact regardless of who has physical possession of those records. Jurisdictions must ensure that if they conduct post-election ballot examinations, they also continue to comply with the retention and preservation requirements of Section 301. 

Think of this you read this:

[State Senator] Mastriano’s letter [of July 7, 2021]to the counties states that legislative changes to the election code, the COVID-19 pandemic, state Supreme Court rulings and actions by former Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar “presented unprecedented challenges” and “combined to cause a great burden on counties and county officials during the general election cycle.” 

The letter requests that counties turnover potentially hundreds of thousands of items, including all ballots cast in the 2020 election, voter rolls, ballot paper samples, cybersecurity protocols, software used through the election process, and the machines used to tabulate results, among others.

So when/if this were to take place in Pennsylvania election authorities must have "ultimate management authority" over those records. If not the DOJ says:

There are federal criminal penalties attached to willful failures to comply with the retention and preservation requirements of the Civil Rights Act. First, Section 301 itself makes it a federal crime for “[a]ny officer of election” or “custodian” of election records to willfully fail to comply with the retention and preservation requirements. 52 U.S.C. § 20701. Second, Section 302 provides that any “person, whether or not an officer of election or custodian, who willfully steals, destroys, conceals, mutilates, or alters any record or paper” covered by Section 301’s retention and preservation requirement is subject to federal criminal penalties. Id. § 20702. Violators of either section can face fines of up to $1000 and imprisonment of up to one year for each violation.
Will you be paying attention to the law, Senator Mastriano?

I realize that's an iffy question, given your adjacent (at best) participation in the insurrection of January 6, but still I gotta ask.

Vote For Me! Vote For Me! VOTE FOR ME!! (Pittsburgh City Paper "Best in Pittsburgh")

OMG, this blog has been nominated for Best Blog in the City Paper's "Best In Pittsburgh 2021"!

Can you believe it?

Neither can I. 

In the meantime all I can say is:

Vote for me!

Vote for me!

Vote for me!

And while you're at it, you can vote for Wendy Bell as Best Jagoff?

That would be awesome!


Wait A Goshdarnminute! Wendy Bell's Husband Is Vaxxed???

Yes, friends. It's true. The Angel of Death, the Pittsburgh Radio Karen who routinely warns her adoring fanboys and fangirls about the absolute dangers of "the jab" is married to a jabbed man.

Proof came yestiddy:

Possible HIPAA violation aside (I'm not an attorney so I might be wrong but I am thinking it is NOT a violation, unless Dr Joe gave Wendy a name or other identifying information), think of the implications to all this.

And whilst doing that, remember that they have at least one son who is also vaxxed.

But...what about all those misgivings she had at the end of April?

Does Dr Joe think that "the jab" is experimental? That it isn't FDA approved? That it's somehow a threat to his sons' fertility?

Does he not know about all that airtight, bullet-proof solid VAERS government data that proves just how dangerous the Fauci-ouchie really is?

If he was somehow forced into getting jabbed to keep his job, is his paycheck worth gambling with his  progeny's ability to procreate?

Or does he think that everything that his wife tells her crowd about the vaccine complete and utter bullshit?

I'd like to know.

Questions For Candidate Sean Parnell

As you know Robert David Steele's Arise USA/QAnon/Anti-vaxx rally tour is having a bit of a cash flow problem

His last regular show was in Beaver. He's now going solo. Be that as it may his next stop is up in Belfast, Maine.

And here's a response from some citizens of Maine:  

Congregation Beth Israel, within its membership, contains a wide-range of political views. 
One thing we all agree on, regardless of our individual politics, is a definition of anti-Semitism. 
Tomorrow night in Belfast, which is home to some Jewish members and friends of our congregation, Representative Heidi Sampson will speak at an event organized by Robert David Steele. The Bangor Daily News article below lists him as an anti-Zionist, but he has repeatedly expressed anti-Semitic views and praise for Holocaust denial in the past.


We hold that it is utterly repugnant and irresponsible for Representative Sampson to participate in anything organized by such an anti-Semite.

So what's my question? It's based on this screen capture:

That's Robert David Steele in the cowboy hat behind the podium.

And who's that behind the stage, schmoozing with some prospective voters?

By gum, that's Senate Candidate Sean Parnell! He even posted a  picture of the event at his own Facebook page!

Did he know about Steele's antisemitism? Can you explain your presence at the Arise USA/QAnon/Anti-vaxx rally in Beaver?

Sean once (famously) said that if you don't denounce something, you've embraced it.

Ok, Sean. Do you denounce Robert David Steele's antisemitism? How about the anti-vaxx misinformation spread at that rally?

While I am not a member of Pennsylvania Republican Party, I am guessing that more than a few members might want an answer to these questions.

And Now, A Message From Reality On The Virus And Vaccines

By way of The NYTimes:

After an all too brief respite, the United States is again at a crossroads in the pandemic. The number of infections has ticked up — slowly at first, then swiftly — to 51,000 cases per day, on average, more than four times the rate a month ago. The country may again see overflowing hospitals, exhausted health care workers and thousands of needless deaths.

The more contagious Delta variant may be getting the blame, but fueling its rise is an older, more familiar foe: vaccine hesitancy and refusal, long pervasive in the United States. Were a wider swath of the population vaccinated, there would be no resurgence — of the Delta variant, or Alpha variant, or any other version of the coronavirus.

And the AP

Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine.

And even Sen. Mitch McConnell:

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell implored unvaccinated Americans Tuesday to take the COVID-19 shot, issuing a stark and grave warning of a repeat of last year’s rising caseloads and shutdowns if people refuse to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

McConnell urged Americans to ignore the “demonstrably bad advice” coming from pundits and others against the vaccines. As cases skyrocket, he noted that nearly all the new virus hospitalizations in the U.S. are among people who have not been vaccinated.

“If there is anybody out there willing to listen: Get vaccinated,” McConnell, R-Ky., said at his weekly press conference at the Capitol.

And yet here we are.

July 25, 2021

Aw, Sad Face. Look What's Happened To Robert David Steele's AriseUSA/QAnon/Anti-vaxx Tour

Hey, remember that QAnon/Anti-vaxx rally that rolled in to Beaver, PA last week under the title of "AriseUSA"? The one run by the guy who thinks that NASA currently has a colony of Earth children enslaved on the planet Mars. Yea, that one.

Well, it seems that they're running out of cash.

Beaver, PA was a triumph, and the only stop where our efforts were honored with a front page headline as shown here. We owe that triumph to Brynn Marie and Josh Himes, who demonstrated the glorious outcome that can be achieved when a community with a heart comes together with a tour carrying an honorable message.

However, the donations coming in have not kept pace with the costs — anything less than  $15K a day puts us into a negative cash flow situation and since we have no money of our own to give now (I personally have invested $250K, all I had, and borrowed $45K from my wife) — I had to make a decision, in consultation with Trent Loos and Kevin Jenkins, to pull the plug on the coaches.

That would be the tour buses.

And so the QAnon-ster is going solo:

I seek your assistance in determining how to proceed. I feel called to complete the tour in my SUV, starting in Belfast, Maine on Tuesday 27 July (where most of us will appear), but then onward with a big difference: instead of locations arranged by Trent Loos, I seek a single host for each stop who will tell me where to show up, and I will have a conversation for several hours with as many people as might wish to muster locally.  I will bring Miss Piggy and the Pig Bucket to collect gas money. I welcome our host arranging for local speakers and a do it yourself video recording that we can load to my Bitchute account.

The next show will be in Maine. And the local coverage in Maine got it right: 

A former sheriff linked to the Oath Keepers, a far-right anti-government extremist group, will speak in Belfast next week — a decision that has alarmed some in the community.

Richard Mack is a marquee speaker of the Arise USA! The Resurrection Tour that is making its only stop in Maine at the Crosby Center in downtown Belfast Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. 

The former Arizona sheriff is also the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association, an organization that believes that county sheriffs have powers that supersede those of any other law enforcement officer, including federal officers. In 2016, the Center for Public Integrity, a non-profit investigative news outlet, reported that Mack sat on the board of directors of the Oath Keepers. That group is part of the patriot militia movement and came under heavy scrutiny after the deadly Jan. 6 assault on the U.S Capitol. It’s known for trying to recruit military and law enforcement officers and is classified as an anti-government extremist group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. 

Though if Steele is going solo, it's unclear if Mack will be speaking. On the other hand, the Bangor Daily News does include this paragraph about Steele:

The national tour organizer is Robert David Steele, a former CIA agent and 2016 Libertarian candidate for president who holds strongly anti-Zionist views. Steele told the Blue Mountain Eagle in John Day, Oregon, that the goal of the Arise USA tour is to unite 99 percent of the country against what he called the 1 percent in government. His group’s grievances included COVID-19 restrictions, alleged election fraud, satanic pedophila and critical race theory, according to the Eagle.

Of course, Steele has an explanation for his tour's failure and the (truthful) coverage in Maine:

This entire tour has been a God-thing. I have the strong feeling that this shift away from an expensive caravan to a very personal journey is part of the God-thing. I note with amusement the Zionist-inspired attack on our Belfast event:

A tour coming to Belfast aims to ‘save America,’ but critics fear it will spread far-right radicalization

The Zionists and  their Antifa/BLM stooges have clearly been planning to ambush us from Maine to Florida and — again — a God-thing — now they have no target. I feel sorry for the reporter bribed or bamboozled into writing such a defamatory and ignorant article.

It's those pesky Zionists and their Antifa/BLM stooges! (Yea, that sounds rational.)

If you were curious about his stance on Zionism, in a book review Steele outlines his thoughts:

I am not ready to make the leap condemning Jews, although I buy into their being an invented tribe, not a race and not a religion, more like a secret society that believes itself to be exempt from all laws and customs of others. For me, in the here and now this book documents the heart of the Zionist agenda of subversion, and the importance of giving Jewish citizens a choice: be loyal to the Republic or go to jail.

This is the guy heading to Maine. This is the leader of AriseUSA.

Hey, did you know that candidate Sean Parnell was there? At that AriseUSA/QAnon/Anti-vaxx rally? The one run by that guy with believes in giving "Jewish citizens a choice: be loyal to the Republic or go to jail."?

Any thoughts in this Sean?

More On Wendy Bell's Speech At That Arise USA/QAnon/Anti-Vaxx rally

QAnon-ster Robert David Steele was good enough to post the more-or-less full of empty platitudes speech at that Wendy Bell gave at this week's Arise USA/QAnon/Anti-Vaxx rally in Beaver.

Good. It gives us all an opportunity to see what Wendy's been spewing in public these days.

First, a personal story. At 3:40, Wendy says:

Personal story. My second oldest son Jack went yesterday and got the jab. You know? He's nineteen. He's a grown  man. He has to make decisions. He has to be free to choose what is right for him.

And it's required from a super liberal school.

Now I'm confused. Did Jack choose to get the vaccine or did he have to get the vaccine because it's required by the "super liberal school" he's attending?

And, BTW, which "super liberal school" is the second son of Wendy Bell attending?

According to Wendy herself (and I would not mention this had Wendy not mentioned it), writing in a surprisingly sad column from last August, he's attending Boston College - a private Jesuit University where the tuition is upwards of $56,000/yr.

Whatever can be said about the Jesuits' placement along a liberal-to-conservative political continuum (and not being Catholic, I'll remain agnostic on the subject) they can hardly be tagged as "super liberal" can they?

And if forcing her son to be vaccinated with something so dangerous bothered her that much, why shell out the 56 large to BC this year?

At 5:00, Wendy says:

How many of you watch my show or listen to it? Right on! Right on! We spend so much time researching things, finding things, giving you the sources so that you can double check me. And I say everyday, "Hey if you find that I am wrong, let me know. I'll be the first to admit it. I'll make it right."

Ok, Wendy. Challenge accepted.

Here we go. I'm letting you know that every time you cite the VAERS data to prove how dangerous the vaccine is, you're wrong.

How do I know this?

As I've written many many times before, the CDC itself has a disclaimer that reads (in part):

VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to VAERS. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. Most reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind.

So whenever you use those numbers to "prove" that something nefarious is afoot, you're wrong, see?

And when have I corrected you on your use of the VAERS data? Here's a few postings from just the past two months:

There you go, Wendy. 6 times you were absolutely positively wrong about something. 

When will you (as you promised) admit it?

July 23, 2021

More On Robert David Steele's QAnon/Anti-vaxx Rally In Beaver

Kudos to the Beaver County Times for its stellar stellar coverage of the Arise USA/QAnon/Anti-vaxxing rally this week!

I mean look at the timeline of their coverage:

Their announcement of the rally, dated July 12, 2021 was framed this way:

Two national recording artists from Beaver County will perform, and speakers will address unity and change, at the Arise USA! event on July 21 at the gazebo in Beaver.
Despite the fact that The Blue Mountain Eagle out in Oregon reported this about two weeks before,
The group’s grievances ranged from COVID-19 restrictions to alleged election fraud to satanic pedophilia and critical race theory.

Their announcement triggered this letter to the editor, dated July 20, 2021, that let them know:

Responding to the July 12 story on the Arise USA! event on Wednesday, The Times helped promote, in an article by this paper’s entertainment reporter, a national tour of crackpot conspiracy theorists coming to Beaver to spread dangerous disinformation.

And so how did the Beaver County Times actually cover the event after the fact?

With this. Four pictures (each with a caption) under the headline:

Rally for faith, family, freedom

And each image had roughly the same caption. I'll give you an example. Here's Angel of Death and retired newscaster here showing off how well she shaves her armpits, Wendy Bell:

Each caption contains this text:
The tour is traveling the country with both national and local speakers to promote faith, family and freedom.

As you can see, while Wendy did get a "controversial" attached to her name, there's no mention on the page of Robert Steele's quest for the satanic pedophiles in our corrupt government, no mention of Lisa Kellerman's advice for avoiding the coronavirus being shed by the vaccinated: rubbing pine oil extract on one's ankles.

What awesome coverage, Beaver County Times. What. Awesome. Coverage.

July 22, 2021

Lisa Kellerman is Not A Medical Doctor. (More From That Freedom/QAnon Rally In Beaver)

Lisa Kellerman is not an MD. It says so on her website:

Lisa is a Traditional Naturopath, not a Medical Doctor. She does not prescribe medicines but recommends diet and supplemental and lifestyle changes that may enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

So why was she giving medical advice yesterday at Robert David Steele's Freedom/QAnon rally?

Her name is announced at 4:05 - that how I know it's Kellerman.

Her medical advice discussing the coronavirus vaccine:

0:35 - "People are dying from this shot. They're having aneurysm, strokes, [unintelligble] HIV, autoimmune issues, blood clots, miscarriages. That's just a few. These are life threatening serious illnesses from this shot."

Lisa Kellerman is not a medical doctor (neither am I, for that matter, but then again I'm not spreading life-threatening misinformation as medical advice). 

Her entire "medical" credibility (and remember: Lisa Kellerman is not an MD) was gone after she said that someone could get HIV from a coronavirus vaccine. As far as miscarriages go, a real MD says:

No, the COVID-19 vaccines do not cause infertility in women, nor do they cause complications during birth or increase the chances of a miscarriage.

The non-MD goes on:

1:55 - "Does anyone know - does anybody want to know how to protect yourself if you're not going to get the shot? Right? Everybody should want to know that. What should you do to protect yourself from the people that are vaccinated? And just so you know, these variants that are coming out, they're not coming from the unvaccinated. They're coming from the vaccinated people. But we got a whole spin on that going on.

Pine! You've heard of Pineneedle Tea, Grapeseed Pinebark, Pine essential oils is what I use.

The first thing you need to do, most important, is get some Pineneedle tea or get some pine essential oil, dilute it and rub it on your ankles and your feet. Ok? There's an ingredient in there that protects against something that may be transmitted from the shot.[Emphasis added]

I don't think we need to go any further with the non-MD "Dr" Kellerman's "medical" advice do we?

Isn't it illegal to dispense medical advice without a license? And since Lisa Kellerman is not a medical doctor, how could she have a medical license?

How many people in that crowd are going to get sick because they followed they thought rubbing pine essential oils on their ankles would protect them from the virus?

July 21, 2021

Arise USA! QAnon Rally TODAY! (More On Robert David Steele)

And it's triggered a response among some readers of the Beaver County Times.

Remember this?

That's my blog post from 4 days ago wherein I describe, with a more than adequate amount of details, how the Arise USA! rally being held in Beaver PA is less like the "unity" rally described in the Beaver County Times and more like a QAnon/wingnut rally.

And how the Angel of Death, Wendy Bell, should feel right at home.

Well, the reporting on the rally has triggered a similar response in at least one reader of the Times:

Responding to the July 12 story on the Arise USA! event on Wednesday, The Times helped promote, in an article by this paper’s entertainment reporter, a national tour of crackpot conspiracy theorists coming to Beaver to spread dangerous disinformation. Yes, it’s a carnival of lies, but is it entertainment?

Only if you think the lies that incited a deadly lynch mob at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th are entertainment. Only if you think that COVID denialism and anti-vaxx hysteria, which is literally killing people, is entertainment.


Another guy repeated the debunked Trump election lies that got right-wing media outlets sued for billions and triggered panicked retractions to avoid courts of law where facts actually matter. But wait there’s more! He also promoted the Pizzagate conspiracy that helped Qanon get its start, and said 9/11 was an “inside job” and that Israel helped.  
That would be Robert David Steele. We've discussed Steele's goofy conspiracy theories (OMG, NASA has enslaved children on Mars!!) but there's so much there, we just have to dive in for another swim.

For example, this. From his website's "Op-Eds" page we find this link to an editorial at the Tehran Times (Yes, The TEHRAN TIMES, where it says he's a regular contributor). Here are his first three paragraphs:

President Donald Trump is a genius. The “new” Palestine Peace Plan is a promising first step toward the restoration of Palestine in President Trump’s second term, when he can fulfil his most important promise to all Americans, one subtly made by Q Anon: “Zionists last.”

Our President knows full well that the Zionists were responsible for 9/11, with planning beginning in 1988 when the Twin Towers were declared a hazard that must be manually dismantled by 2007. The owners – the States of New York and New Jersey, desiring to avoid a $2 billion dollar bill, began conspiring with Larry Silverstein, who briefed Benjamin Netanyahu who briefed Dick Cheney who ordered planning to begin for the 2001 false flag event that I document in the 28 memoranda by 26 expert witnesses delivered to President Trump on 8 August 2016: 9/11 Truth.

Our President is also fully familiar with the Mossad pedophilia entrapment and blackmail rings used to control US politicians, judges, prosecutors, media voices, and celebrities. I have documented the Nine Veils of Evil represented by the Ghislaine Maxwell – Jeffrey Epstein pedophilia network, which is but one of over fifty such networks managed by the Mossad in collaboration with rogue elements of the CIA and the FBI – the same rogue elements that traffic in small children, drugs, guns, cash, and gold, to create the massive off-budget funds used to nurture the Deep State’s transnational criminal operations.


This is the guy running the show over at Arise USA!

July 20, 2021

Wendy Bell Misinforms With Numbers. Again.

How many times do we need to do this?

Let's start with the U.S. surgeon general Dr. Videk Murthy. He has a BA from Harvard and an MD from Yale, by the way. Oh and he's also a vice-admiral in the U.S. Navy.

The other day on CNN in a response to Dana Bash, he said:

People all across our country, and I hear from folks all the time, who are struggling to make decisions about their health. After this very difficult year we’ve been through, people deserve to have access to accurate information.”

Murthy continued: “They deserve to hear that from their leaders, from the media. They deserve to see that on platforms online. They need that information to be able to make decisions to protect themselves and their families. That’s the least we can do for them. And my worry is that all of this is misinformation that’s floating around, it’s having a real cost that can be measured in lives lost and that is just tragic.”

Misinformation is having a real cost. Lives lost and that's just tragic.

With that as the frame, let's look at some more of Wendy Bell's tragic dangerous misinformation. 

 It can be found here at her Facebook page. This part, specifically:

Whenever she's challenged on her "facts" Wendy usually defends herself by stoutly asserting that she's delivering the truth, that she's done her research and is delivering solid information.

She's wrong. Every time.

And this time is no different. And here's why: If you were to google "Public Health England" and "92,029" you'd find a recent story about how the numbers out of the UK are "proving" how someone twice vaccinated is 7 times more likely (Wendy says 8) to die than a non-vaccinated person.

She posted this BS on her BS board yesterday - July 19.

It was debunked three days earlier on July 16 by the AP:

The U.K.’s public health agency’s June 25 report on coronavirus variants did not provide evidence that people who are vaccinated are more likely to die. Rather, the report shows that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing people from being hospitalized from the delta variant and no one under the age of 50 who was fully vaccinated died from that variant.


From Feb. 1 to June 21, the public health agency documented 92,029 cases of patients infected with the delta variant. Of those patients, 53,822, or about 58%, were unvaccinated and 7,235, or less than 8%, had received both doses of a vaccine.


The Twitter post uses those numbers to falsely claim the data shows people who were vaccinated had a 0.69% chance of dying and people who were unvaccinated had just a 0.08% chance of dying, and the difference between those is 745%. But experts say that form of analysis is invalid because the data does not take into account age of patients and other underlying illnesses.

Do the numbers look familiar?

Again this was posted three days before Wendy misinformed her adoring public.

Reuters fact-checked this on July 14:

Public Health England fatality statistics do not suggest that fully vaccinated individuals are 745% more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who are unvaccinated. The figures were taken out of context from a PHE briefing.

Wendy got this one wrong, too. She promotes herself as someone who does solid research. The fact that this story had been debunked for days is evidence for how that's such complete bullshit.

People (including Wendy's fawning fan base) deserve to have access to accurate information. What Wendy posted on her BS board was not accurate. This misinformation is having a real cost: losing lives.

And that's just tragic.

How many people aren't/haven't gotten vaccinated because they believe Wendy Bell's misinformation? How many of them will get very very sick? How many of them will die?

Meanwhile, Outside

As per tradition, from the scientists over at NOAA:

The June 2021 global surface temperature was the fifth highest for June in the 142-year record at 0.88°C (1.58°F) above the 20th century average. Only Junes of 2015 (fourth warmest), 2016 (second warmest), 2019 (warmest), and 2020 (third warmest) were warmer and had a global temperature departure above +0.90°C (+1.62°F). Nine of the 10 warmest Junes have occurred since 2010. June 1998 is the only June from the previous century among the 10 warmest Junes on record, and currently ranks as the tenth warmest June on record. June 2021 also marked the 45th consecutive June and the 438-consecutive month with temperatures, at least nominally, above the 20th century average.

Yes, I know the GOP is hoping we all forget that Trump-mob that stormed the Capitol in early January as part of a plan to overturn the 2020 election. And all know about the GOP assaults on women's rights, voting rights and the coronavirus vaccines.

HOWEVER meanwhile, it's still warming up out there. That's what the science says.

July 21! Beaver Pennsylvania! Arise USA! QAnon Tour! Be There!

A few days ago I blogged on an upcoming rally in Beaver, PA:

The Arise USA! Rally in Beaver County is a QAnon event, plain and simple. Wendy Bell should feel right at home. 

And in doing so I fear I've embarrassed Scott Tady (the reporter for the Beaver County Times who covered it) when I pointed out that he completely missed the QAnon angle. Oh, dear. Oh, dear. My bad. I feel horrible about this. Just horrible.

Don't get me wrong, I am sure Scott's a fine fellow - one who's usually good at what he does and so on. Who knows? He might be great tomorrow but he was hopeless on pointing out the QAnon stuff.

Back to the rally.

There's a lot to unpack, as they say. We already know that the organizer is a guy named Robert David Steele and we already know he's a QAnon Pizzagate follower/9-11 truther. Is there anything else to know about Mr Steele?

Hoo boy, is there!

On Thursday (June 29), a guest on Alex Jones' radio show named Robert David Steele claimed that Mars is inhabited — by people sent to the Red Planet against their will.

"We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride, so that once they get to Mars, they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony," Steele told Jones, the founder of the controversial InfoWars website. 

And, according to the Washington Post, the enslaved Earth children on Mars are actually part of the Pizzagate story:

On Thursday’s Infowars broadcast, Steele appeared to connect the kidnapped children being held captive on Mars to pedophile rings who allegedly use children for their youthful body parts and energy.

“Pedophilia does not stop with sodomizing children,” Steele said. “It goes straight into terrorizing them to adrenalize their blood and then murdering them. It also includes murdering them so that they can have their bone marrow harvested as well as body parts.”

“This is the original growth hormone,” Jones said.

“Yes, it's an anti-aging thing,” Steele replied.

This is the guy organizing the Arise USA! tour.

From Vice we learn:

Steele and the other speakers on the tour, who include a variety of fringe mini-celebrities from MAGA world as well as local pro-Trump figures, are using the tour to reinforce the idea that the government is not to be trusted and that regular citizens (the 99%, as Steele calls them) need to stand up and take action in order to regain control.

Central to this is the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), a group led by longtime militia figure Richard Mack, who wants to reintroduce Posse Comitatus, a violent far-right movement that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s and whose ideas underpinned the militia and common law courts movements of the 1990s.

And the Constitutional Sheriff & Peace Officers Association. What is that?

From The New Yorker:

C.S.P.O.A. members believe that the sheriff has the final say on a law’s constitutionality in his county. Every law-enforcement officer has some leeway in choosing which laws to enforce, which is why it’s rare to get a ticket for jaywalking, for example. But, under this philosophy, the supremacy clause of the Constitution, which dictates that federal law takes precedence over state law, is irrelevant. So is the Supreme Court. “They get up every morning and put their clothes on the same way you and I do,” Finch told me. “Why do those nine people get to decide what the rest of the country’s going to be like?” To the most dogmatic, there’s only one way to interpret the country’s founding documents: pro-gun, anti-immigrant, anti-regulation, anti-Washington.

Yea, this is a very different from how the first reporting on it (where "speakers will address unity and change"), don't ya think?

What about some of the other speakers?

Kim Waigand - Owner of the Crack'd Egg and avid Covid-19 denier. And you remember the last time the Crack'd Egg graced the virtual pages of this blog, right?

The good folks at the Crack'd Egg were on the other side of the state cheering the coronavirus. They cheered the virus that's killed tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians. Watch the video: They. Cheered. 

Dr Lisa Kellerman - A "Lisa is a Traditional Naturopath, not a Medical Doctor." That's from her own website (you can check the link). This should tell you everything you need to know if she starts to discuss any medical topic. Given the context, I am guessing she's going to talk about the coronavirus or the vaccine. Or both.

And so on.
Do we really need to go on?

This will not be a simple "unity" rally. This will be an anti-government, anti-vaccine, QAnon tainted event. Everyone attached to it will be linked to the rampant ignorance on display.

Enslaved Earth children on Mars? Really Robert?

And as I said before, Wendy Bell should fit right in.

A Quick Note About Wendy Bell's YouTube Ban

Aw, so sad.

The Angel of Death has been permanently bounced from YouTube.

I'm guessing it's the repeated COVID-19 misinformation. Whether it's Wendy's repeated dishonesty about the CDC numbers or Wendy's repeated dishonesty regarding the vaccines, who can tell?

Anyway Wendy's all snowflaked about it:


Unlike purveyors of fake news, lies and purposeful deceit, everything I present to you on my Wendy Bell Radio program is fact checked and sourced.

I share websites and researchers’ names, data sets and scientific review links, so that YOU can get back in the business of discovering your own truths. So that YOU can make informed, highly personal decisions that - last time I checked - are explicitly protected and defended by our Constitution.

Not good enough, says You Tube.

My honesty and attribution of facts has triggered them to permanently ban my account, remove my page, and throw away the key.

I am the latest in a long line of targets of censorship, though prostitutes, child sex traffickers, drug lords and known criminals’ pages are just fine.

The fight is on. They’re not just feeling the heat, they’re melting in the flames. And it’s only just begun.

(PS. Pay close attention to anyone who celebrates the silencing of another American.)

Let's take a look at a few things here:

Unlike purveyors of fake news, lies and purposeful deceit, everything I present to you on my Wendy Bell Radio program is fact checked and sourced.

I share websites and researchers’ names, data sets and scientific review links, so that YOU can get back in the business of discovering your own truths. So that YOU can make informed, highly personal decisions that - last time I checked - are explicitly protected and defended by our Constitution.

Interestingly, that first sentence is actually true - if incomplete. The "information" Wendy presents is, in fact, fact-checked (sometimes by yours truly). It's just that when that fact-checking is done, it's shown that Wendy is the one pushing the fake news, lies, and purposeful deceit.

Oh, and Wendy? The Bill of Rights only protects free speech from government reprisal. Last I checked YouTube is a private company and as such can set whatever standards they like for what's posted in its site. If they don't like people pushing dangerous anti-vaxx propaganda they can ban them.

See how that works?

I am surprised you haven't learned this lesson by now. I mean when you were tossed from WTAE-TV for that racist Facebook update, they did so because you violated their standards. And when you were tossed from KDKA-Radio for proposing that people protesting Confederate Memorials be shot on sight, they did so because you violated their standards.

It's not a difficult lesson to be learned. Why have you not learned it?

ARISE USA! (Wendy Bell Joins The QAnon Tour)

We noticed this at the usually reliable Beaver County Times the other day and it sent us down into a deep dive.

Sadly, the BC Times left out a few rather important parts.

First, the frame:

Two national recording artists from Beaver County will perform, and speakers will address unity and change, at the Arise USA! event on July 21 at the gazebo in Beaver.

Karen Staley, who grew up in Hookstown, toured with Reba McEntire's band, and wrote No. 1 songs for Faith Hill ("Take Me As I Am"), Michael Martin Murphy ("A Face in The Crowd") and Tracy Byrd (ACM Song of The Year "Keeper of The Stars"), will sing.

The BC Times described the event this way:

The speakers will include emcee Trent Loos, a sixth generation farmer from Illinois; Robert David Steele, a former Marine and CIA counterintelligence expert who created We The People – Unity for Integrity, seeking to the unify the populist right and left with people of color, Latinos, and all small parties with Independents to enact election reform; and Kevin D. Jenkins, the CEO of Urban Global Health Alliance, which states its mission is "to educate, empower and release urban communities and their leaders from decades of indoctrination and suppression; and to create effective public policy, which safeguards rights of equality."

The event's flier also lists as speakers conservative radio commentator and former Pittsburgh TV news anchor Wendy Bell; former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, a gun rights advocate and founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association; Jamie Sheffield from Audit The Vote PA, and Monaca High graduate Josh Himes, a former champion pro boxer.

And now you know how we got here.This should be fun, no?

The main problem here is that when we dig into the nature of Arise USA! we find things are a little different than what the Times says. 

From the tour's website we discover that Steele, Staley, Mack, Loos, and Jenkins are actually tour organizers not simply speakers.

And the tour isn't simply about unity and change but something else. When the tour went through Oregon this is how the local media described it:

Nearly 40 people showed up to encourage people to get more involved with their government at the local level at the Grant County Fairgrounds Thursday

The goal of the Arise USA tour, organizer Robert David Steele said, is to unite 99% of the country against the 1% in government, who he said no longer represent the people.

And then:

The group’s grievances ranged from COVID-19 restrictions to alleged election fraud to satanic pedophilia and critical race theory.

So QAnon? The "satanic pedophilia" part is a dead give away. But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe just one of the guest speakers is a QAnon quack.

But then there's this on Steele:

Steele also blames the U.S. government for the 9/11 terrorist attacks despite contrary conclusions reached by the 9/11 Commission, which released its findings in 2004. He said Israel was behind the attack while former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld were “inside guys.”

Steele also “absolutely” believes that high-ranking Democratic Party officials were running a human trafficking and child sex ring out of a pizza parlor.

QAnon it is! 

The Arise USA! Rally in Beaver County is a QAnon event, plain and simple. Wendy Bell should feel right at home.

And Scott Tady, of the the Beaver County Times, completely missed this. 

Why did they send an entertainment reporter to cover this story?

Wendy Bell Challenges The Fact Checkers (Spoilers: She's Misleading. Again)

Ok, Wendy. Let's do this.

When the nice white lady sheltered in her basement "studio" isn't Karen-lecturing America about race, she's usually misleading her rabid fanbase about the coronavirus (the "fake" numbers, the "dangerous" vaccine, whatever).

Yesterday was no different.  On her Facebook page, Wendy went with this:

I wonder if I am among the "esteemed." Goshers I hope so! I mean, just take a look at how she describes her BS Bullshit boards - "chock full of information" (well get to that in a minute). Does it remind you of anything? Any thing recent?  

 Only three long/short days ago I posted this:

Yesterday, The Angel of Death posted not one but two BS boards Chock full o' Nutzy misinformation. 

Hey, Wendy. Nice to see you. Sit down. Have some coffee. I'm glad you're so enamored of my little blog that you're subconsciously quoting it. 

Here's the thing. You're still misusing the VAERS data. FB tells you this every time you do it.

Like here:

If you were to click on that "See Why" link you'd get these two corrections:

I even told you this three weeks ago. ICYMI, this is from the CDC's own disclaimer for the VAERS data:

VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to VAERS. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. Most reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind. [Emphasis added.]

See the sentences that are in italicized bold, Wendy? Yea, that's what you always fail to do.

And face it, Wendy, without that VAERS data, you got bupkes.

If I get the chance tonight, I'll take you to school on the first Bullshit board.

Wendy Bell, Spreads The Good MAGA News!

Hey, y'inzguyz remember this blog post from nearly a week ago?

That's the one where that nice white lady in that very comfortable house lectures America about (among other things) race:

Race: If your race defines who you are, you will forever be enslaved by victimhood. Americans don’t hate each other based on appearance. We see through the constant race-baiting the media peddles, and we’re done with it.

Yea, tone-deaf, near-sighted Wendy Bell speaks for all the patriotic patriots in America and defines racism for all the POC who just happen to also live there.

What's that got to do with anything this fine fine Monday morning?

Well she's taking the show on the road.

To upstate New York, in fact, to the letters page at a news outlet called My Little Falls:

Race: If your race defines who you are, you will forever be enslaved by victimhood. Americans don’t hate each other based on appearance. We see through the constant race-baiting the media peddles, and we’re done with it.

And so on...

From the website's about page:

My Little Falls is a local media company covering the City of Little Falls, Town of Little Falls, Dolgeville, Salisbury...
Here's an interesting here-to-fore little-known fact, one that's completely pertinent to the present discussion: The City of Little Falls, NY is a 6-7 hour car ride from Pittsburgh.

Um, I have questions:

  • Why on Earth would Wendy Bell submit that slimy piece of MAGA crap to a small news outlet in central New York State?
  • Did she submit it elsewhere?
  • Where?  
  • Is she that needy for attention that this is a solution?

Monday, Monday. Can't trust that day.

Wendy Bell, Fact-Checked. Again. (Spoilers: She's Misinforming Her Public)

Yesterday, The Angel of Death posted not one but two BS boards Chock full o' Nutzy misinformation.

The second got this treatment by Facebook's Facheckers:

And if you were on her FB page and if you were to click that "See Why" button, you'd see this:

Fact Check: CDC Did NOT Inflate COVID-19 Numbers And Did
NOT Violate Federal Law In Providing Death Data Guide

There are more sins on that blocked image but for the time being, well let it go at that.

Her other BS board:

Deserves its own debunking.

The first thing you should notice is Wendy's source: The UK's Daily Expose.

These are the same folks who lied (twice) about the vaccines impact on the rate of miscarriages or how those same vaccines could cause mass male infertility.

Neither of which are, y'know, true.

Given how wrong they are about the miscarriages and male infertility, why should we believe them about anything else? I thought Wendy Bell has some journalistic education. Doesn't that training include checking the credibility of one's sources?

Wendy evidently didn't bother here. Or worse yet she did and then proceeded to spread this misinformation any way. Or even worser yet, she doesn't see it as misinformation in the first place.

Uh-oh. Let's hope she's not that far gone. Let's just hope that Wendy's simply dishonest and not disengaged from reality.

But let's take a look at what the BS board actually says (as sourced by the Daily Expose):

Her whole argument rests on this passage. So how much of this is actually true?

While there was a transfer of vaccine candidates at that time, this is actually what happened:

Asked about the MTA, the spokesperson said on June 23, 2021: “The materials transferred to UNC in December 2019 were vaccine candidates against Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and not SARS-CoV-2.”

Because y'know Wendy, as Politifact points out

Human coronaviruses were first identified in the mid-1960s and researchers have identified seven that can infect people.

For years, well before the identification of SARS-CoV-2, researchers have been studying ways to develop vaccines against coronaviruses, particularly because coronaviruses are known to have a high probability of causing pandemics.

Huh. So there are seven known coronaviruses? You didn't say that, did you Wendy? You just let your audience assume that it was SARS-CoV-2, didn't you?

Shouldn't you have checked deeper than with the people who think that the UK COVID lockdowns are a just a part of that country's Climate Change protocols?

Yea crazy, right? No? Uh-oh. Maybe she is that disengaged.

Or maybe you didn't know that there are so many coronaviruses. Oh, if only there was someone close to you who was an actual medical expert that you could ask about this sciency stuff. Perhaps over coffee at the breakfast table some morning before making a fool of yourself on the internet later that day. 

I am sure you know someone like that, right? I am guessing (hoping?) he's appalled that you're getting the medical science so dangerously wrong - as it's probably putting a crimp in his professional credibility.

Oh yea, and it's probably going to lead to a whole lot of people getting sick.

July 9, 2021

A Question For Senate Candidate Sean Parnell (Endorse or Denounce Hitler)?

Sean (can I call you Sean? Thanks!), you once famously intoned that if you don't denounce something, you've endorsed it.

Ok so let me ask you about this:

Then-President Donald Trump allegedly praised Adolf Hitler during a discussion with his White House chief of staff John Kelly in 2018 while on a trip to Paris to commemorate the armistice after World War I, according to excerpts of an upcoming book, obtained by CNN, from Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender.

"Well, Hitler did a lot of good things," Trump reportedly told Kelly, who was explaining to the 45th President who the allies and adversaries were in both World Wars, according to Bender.
Bender also writes in the book, titled "Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost," that Trump was "undeterred" and persisted in his defense of the German dictator by claiming the country made economic gains under Hitler's leadership.

So do you think Hitler did a lot of good things? Do endorse that statement or denounce it?

For the record the man who lied more than 30,000 times during his 4 years in office (and continues to lie about his loss in the 2020 election) denied the above comments to chief of staff Kelly.

As CNN wrote:

"This is totally false. President Trump never said this. It is made up fake news, probably by a general who was incompetent and was fired," Liz Harrington, chief spokeswoman for Trump, told CNN Wednesday.

So let's assume that's true. If that's the case then Trump's mouthpiece just called a highly-decorated, retired Marine Corps general "incompetent."

Sean, you're also a veteran and a highly decorated one at that. Do you endorse or denounce that charge?

July 8, 2021

Wendy Bell, Not A Virus Expert, Tells Us "It's Over." (Spoilers: She's Very Wrong)

From Wendy's bullet ridden rant the other day:

Covid: The virus is over, stop it with the stupid masks and “new variant” scare tactics. Get your 6-foot circles off the ground, take away the plexiglass, and move along. We were born free, we are free, and we will always choose to live free.
Vaccine dangers: Stop calling those of us who believe in My Body, My Choice vaccine deniers, or anti-vaxxers. No. We are free thinkers, and we’re paying attention to what the media and big tech desperately try to cover up every day. Why would we vaccinate our children when their chance of Covid survival is 99.98%? Americans are free to make their own decisions and then manage the consequences. Take your mandates and shove them.

There. She said it. The virus is over.

Didn't she say this more than a year ago? Yes, she did:

Covid is officially over. Signs on the floor are gone. Santized carts are no more. Limits on chicken, scratched.

Like the Israeli mathmetician said and our governor never heard... the cycle is 70 days. [Misspellings in original.]

Since then, there have been a few hundred thousand new dead in the US alone and countless more sick and suffering. Wendy's wrong.

If I am reading the chart correctly, the New York Times is reporting that there were about 23,000 new cases in the US with a rolling average of about 13,000.

That same chart shows (if you pull down the "New Cases" menu to "Deaths") about 700 deaths with a rolling average of about 200.

And while we can thank the vaccine that Wendy Bell is trying to convince her crowd not to take for the great reduction since the peak in the winter, the crisis is obviously far from over.

The more our Angel of Death spreads this line, the more this will happen:

Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine.


Still, the overall trend that emerges from the data echoes what many health care authorities are seeing around the country and what top experts are saying.

Earlier this month, Andy Slavitt, a former adviser to the Biden administration on COVID-19, suggested that 98% to 99% of the Americans dying of the coronavirus are unvaccinated.

And CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said on Tuesday that the vaccine is so effective that “nearly every death, especially among adults, due to COVID-19, is, at this point, entirely preventable.” She called such deaths “particularly tragic.”

Of course Wendy Bell takes Dr Walensky to task:

Fauci/Walensky: Your credibility is gone. We don’t “trust the science.” We don’t believe your numbers regarding infections, deaths, or the safety of the jab. You’ve lied repeatedly and those lies have cost far too many Americans their lives and livelihoods.

No, Wendy. The numbers are right and you're wrong. The science is right and you're wrong. And now nearly every death post-vaccine is entirely preventable - were it not for you and your anti-vaxxer fellow travelers pushing vaccine hesitancy. They will die because they believed you.

Something you should be pondering from now on.

Wendy Bell, The Angel of Death.
