Pasadena Star News: Jab Too Much? Well, Now Urine Luck

Mod
: Every other Sunday morning I get to full-tilt bum rush the  Opinion pages of the Pasadena Star News. The very latest:

Garglers: New cure for MAGAs scared of shots (Pasadena Star News link): As those following these strange events will tell you, the MAGA rabbit hole is beyond any conceivable depth. Like all the way to China, out through their atmosphere, beyond the apogee of our happily smiling moon, and on to the distant Oort Cloud. That is, if it even stops there. Nobody knows.

Writing in the staid Republican publication Forbes, Senior Healthcare writer Bruce Y. Lee (probably a RINO) shared this unsettling news:

"Christopher Key, who maintains the 'Vaccine Police' anti-vaxx website, is apparently now touting urine therapy. In this case, urine therapy is not sitting down with a jug of your urine and talking about its feelings. Instead, it’s drinking your own urine, because why not, right? After all, what won’t anti-vaxxers and others pushing different so-called alternative therapies try to convince you to do instead of getting Covid-19 vaccines?"

Apparently in the MAGA world what was once considered scientifically sanctioned norms and mentally acceptable behavior has gone down the drain. As one of my favorite Twitter commentators notes, "Let me get this straight. Republicans call us 'latte liberals' because God forbid someone likes to drink coffee, yet they are now drinking their own urine to 'cure COVID?' I guess GOP now stands for 'Gargling Our Pee.'"

Should you decide to go this route because you want to "own the libs" or something equally important, please wear a mask. Your breath will smell awful and nobody is going to want to share a car with you when riding the Gold Line.

If "urine therapy" strikes you as being distasteful, the Fox News primetime purveyor of all things Covid-quackery, Tucker Carlson, has an alternative remedy you could try. Many in that audience will find this palatable as it already plays an important role in the lives of his primary demographic, physically inactive middle-aged men. This from Salon:

"'Who thought Viagra would save us from the pandemic?' Carlson asked, adding: 'Dr. Marc Siegel may have predicted it,' introducing one of the network's top medical contributors, who listed off a series of claims about the drug's effectiveness as a treatment for pulmonary hypertension and altitude sickness, among other things...Is there anything [Viagra] doesn't cure?' Carlson quipped."

As anyone properly screwed together knows, your chances of death from Covid-19 are exponentially lower when you allow yourself to be properly vaccinated. Certainly by far sunnier percentages than what you'll experience when taking ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, disinfectant, bleach, a "Pfizer Riser," or drinking warm jiggers of mellow yellow.

Of course, you have the liberty to reject medical science and accept the dubious wisdom of imposters like Christopher Key or Tucker Carlson. However, should you do so, remember, as a popular t-shirt design says, "Darwin Smiles." 

Is there such a thing as spiritual quackery? I certainly believe that. History is filled with religious charlatans. Jumping into that fray recently to question the teachings of the Prince of Peace was none other than Donald Trump, Jr. In an article titled "Trump's Heir Preaches Ethic of Jesus Is an Obstacle," the informative Newser site reveals:

"In a political, angrier version of 'nice guys finish last' Donald Trump Jr. told a convention that following the teachings of Jesus has 'gotten us nothing'...'We've been playing T-ball for half a century while they’re playing hardball and cheating, right? We've turned the other cheek,' adding, 'I understand the mentality—but it's gotten us nothing. OK?'"

Junior
goes on to suggest that a direct action approach might help MAGAs achieve a satisfaction life has so far denied them. Perhaps like the bloody insurrection that took place at the Capitol last January 6? In The Atlantic writer Peter Wehner affirms that Trump the Lesser believes "the scriptures are essentially a manual for suckers." 

Think about the alternatives being offered. Then pray a little harder.

Mod: Links to this article were posted by a kindly accomplice on Facebook pages in Sierra MadrePasadena and even fusty old San Dimas. All were quickly taken down. In Sierra Madre his account was also eliminated. Maybe these folks use some of these more controversial Covid therapies and feel sensitive about it?

  1. Hundreds of Trump Voters Are Dying Every Day

    “As of this week, about 1,800 Americans a day are dying of Covid; the C.D.C. expects that number to rise above 2,600.”

    “Virtually all are adults. If 95 percent were unvaccinated and we assume that 75 percent of those were Trump supporters, that’s 1,300 to 1,900 of his voters being subtracted from the rolls every single day.“

    “Donald Trump lost Arizona by a mere 10,000 votes. He lost Georgia by 12,000, He lost Wisconsin by 21,000. He lost Nevada by 33,000.”

    “Right now, about 60 Arizonans, 36 Georgians, 34 Wisconsinites and 14 Nevadans are dying of Covid each day. Seventy five percent of 95 percent of that would be minus 103 Trump voters per day — just in those four swing states. Week after week. That adds up."

    Trump is losing hundreds of voters a day to Covid — far more than the margins in the swing states.

    1. Eventually Darwin will do his thing completely and all these people will vanish from the gene pool. It's sad, I guess.

    2. It's not sad, really. Actually, it is what should happen, but, sadly, won't. One thing that is happening is that anti-vaxxers (closet vaxxers) are actually getting the vaccine and boosters but not telling their family and friends so they don't get mocked. These people are less likely to get removed from the gene pool, as much as the future would be better for it.

  2. Trump took the Ivermectin, and after giving Putin thanks and praise, broke open the Ivermectin and gave it to the Deplorables, saying: Take this, all of you, and eat of it, for this is my Ivermectin, which will be given up for you.

    Trump showed the consecrated Ivermectin to the Deplorables and genuflected in adoration of Putin.

    When the Ivermectin supper-fusion was ended, Trump took the chalice, filled with the fruit of his body, and once more giving Putin thanks, handed the chalice to his Deplorables, saying: Take this, all of you, and drink from it, for this is the chalice of my effluence, the effluence of the new and eternal covenant, which will be poured out of me for you and for many for the forgiveness of liberal sins. Do this in memory of me.

    Trump showed the chalice to the Deplorables and again genuflected in adoration of Putin.

    Then Trump bestowed the mystery of faith: When we eat this Ivermectin and drink this Cup of Effluence, we proclaim the Election was Stolen, O Lord Putin, until you restore your only son Trump into office again. Save us, Lord Putin, Savior of the world, for by Ivermectin, Effluence, and the Resurrection of Trump to the Presidency, you have set us free.

    1. The only emergency battlefield Out Of Body use of urine I know of is to prevent athlete's foot & progression to skin rot. Vietnam troops often patrolled in wetlands unable to keep feet dry. Urine in body is sterile & acidic they'd pee on their feet and let feet, socks & boots dry.

    3. When I had a bulging disk in my back, my mother in law told me to pee on a baby diaper and duct tamp it to my back for a few days, and she promised it would heal my back; no surgery needed. Well, I didn't try that (for many reasons) but now i wonder, with all this wonderful evidence, what if she was right? Could have saved me some money and recovery time??

  6. Make Trump voters very afraid, then sit back and watch them do this.

    They will seek out, attack and destroy their number one enemy. Themselves.

    We are witnessing this process unfold right before our eyes. They were told to fear masks, a life saving vaccine. They were told to fear Democrats. They were told to fear a stolen election. It did not matter it was lie.

    They were told to fear the free press. They were told to fear immigrants, black and brown people. The list goes on and on.

    Thousands of Trump voters have killed themselves by covid. Hundreds have been arrested and destroyed their lives. Many more will follow.

    Trump voters are not unique to history. People throughout history have destroyed themselves blindly following fear.

  7. It looks like Trump went full Aryan Nations for the Cro_Magas in Arizona last night.

    @RonFilipkowski
    Trump says white people are being discriminated against on covid treatment: “If you’re white, you don’t get the vaccine or if you’re white you don’t get therapeutics .. In NY state, if you’re white, you go to the back of the line if you want help.”

    2. Not so crazy, 8:41, sadly. The scholars who have studied the insurrection have reached the same conclusion. These are the people, mostly middle class whites who believe 100% in the replacement theory. They came from purple areas (rather than totally red), who have seen the demographics of Caucasians drop by 1% or more in their neighborhoods. So Trump is keeping those people riled up - Arizona is a good example. Who was the Glendora guy who was just arrested, dad was Bob Kuhn, ex City Council member. I'm hearing via the grapevine that there was a Sierra Madrean who was there as well. Hope he goes to jail for a long time...don't know who it was, can think of several people it might be.

  9. Jan. 6 hearings 'are going to blow the roof off the House,' Raskin says

    On a Thursday Zoom call with progressive activists, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said that the upcoming hearings by the Jan. 6 select committee probing the riot at the U.S. Capitol staged by supporters of former President Donald Trump will “blow the roof off the House.”

    “We are going to do everything we can to subpoena all the information we need and to enforce our subpoenas. But even if we don’t get every last person in there, we are going to have hearings that I believe will be compared to the Watergate hearings, because they are going to blow the roof off the House in terms of explaining to America what actually happened in the attack on our democracy,” Raskin, who sits on the select committee, told an audience of approximately 40,000 people who watched his remarks on Facebook.

    While former Trump administration figures and supporters have defied subpoenas for information and testimony, Raskin said the committee had spoken with more than 400 witnesses to date who have already laid the groundwork for explosive hearings.

    “I hope everybody will watch and I hope everybody will discuss it and then it will lead to a report that, I hope again, will be a game changer in terms of American history,” Raskin said.

  12. Larry Elder: Latest and Most Dangerous ‘Black Face of White Supremacy’.

    Since 1994, Larry Elder has hosted the longest running daytime radio talk show in the Los Angeles area. He has also dabbled in daytime television with something called “Moral Court,” wherein he pronounced verdicts upon “litigants” who appeared in his “court” with conflicting “moral” claims and issues.

    Elder has, thus, always held himself out as something of a, if not the, moral arbiter of all things righteous and just.

    Thus it not merely a matter of happenstance that Elder’s positions on any given issue correspond and jive precisely with the most retrograde formations of white evangelical Christianity and reactionary politics.

    This is a man who has never met a black political, economic, social or cultural issue that white supremacy could not “solve.”

    1. Larry got the living crap knocked out of him in the recall. Now he says that while he won't run for governor again, he will be focused on fund raising for causes he deems worthy. Which is really what far right con artists are the most interested in. Suckering dough out of dumb MAGAs.

  14. DirecTV loss could cripple rightwing One America News.

    WASHINGTON, Jan 15 (Reuters) - The largest satellite provider in the United States said late Friday it will drop One America News, a move that could financially cripple the rightwing TV network known for fueling conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

    The announcement by DirecTV, which is 70% owned by AT&T, comes three months after a Reuters investigation revealed that OAN's founder testified that AT&T inspired him to create the network. Court testimony also showed that OAN receives nearly all of its revenue from DirecTV.
