Quick Takes – Hat Trick

Within I pick three topics upon which to discourse, but not worth a full-length examination as a standalone piece on their own.  But first, reprising an older cartoon (for shameless self-promotion!):

Aid and Comfort


I am a regular link contributor to Gates of Vienna and The Other McCain.  Both have daily link collections plus good articles.  And don’t forget Surak who is kind enough to mention my work.  And here’s a chart + data from last week’s weekly injection toll post… am expecting his newest one imminently but I don’t have time to wait for it:


Here are the latest numbers from VAERS, current as of October 22, 2021. The CDC admits to 17,619 CoVID injection deaths, which is:

  • 91% more than the total deaths from all non-CoVID vaccines 1988-2021;
  • 5.8 times the number of people murdered on 9/11;
  • 36 times the average annual vaccine deaths 2017-2020.




I saw this on Gab and did a double-take.

Considerations regarding consent in vaccinating children and adolescents between 6 and 17 years old

This is the international World Health Organization.  Now, note this text on page 3 (bolding added):An implied consent process by which parents are informed of imminent vaccination through social mobilization and communication, sometimes including letters directly addressed to the parents. Subsequently, the physical presence of the child or adolescent, with or without an accompanying parent at the vaccination session, is considered to imply consent. This practice is based on the opt-out principle and parents who do not consent to vaccination are expected implicitly to take steps to ensure that their child or adolescent does not participate in the vaccination session. This may include not letting the child or adolescent attend school on a vaccination day, if vaccine delivery occurs through schools.

So all they need to do is say they mailed out fliers, didn’t hear from you, and BAM, they’re Jabbing your kids.  My recommendation: proactively send a letter, certified with return receipt, to your school saying that under no circumstances are your kids to receive this Jab.  Keep a copy of your letter, the mailing receipt, and the return receipt.

More broadly, though, even though the evidence is there that the Jab is ineffective and actually dangerous for children, the Anointed Intellects will be smug in their belief they are smarter and nobler than the unwashed, and do it anyway.  In that case, admittedly post facto, at least now you have legal leverage to go after them.

And, IMHO of course, if something happens to your kid after they do this to them over your expressly forbidding it, some… “stronger measures” would be, in my mind, utterly justified.  I’d accept the They needed killing statement as a legitimate defense if I were on the jury.





I’m on quite a number of Covid-related channels on Telegram.  One had this video of a woman going on an absolute rant about sitting next to an unJabbed man – she demanded to see his Jab certificate and asking that he be moved so that she didn’t need to sit next to him.  Note that she only cares about her own precious skin, not the person who – were he to be moved – he’d be sitting with.  (And if she’s Jabbed, how is he a threat to her health?)



Rather ironic considering that Jabbed people can carry the same viral load as unJabbed, Vaccinated People With Breakthrough Infections Can Spread The Delta Variant, CDC Says, and here she is – doubtless risking others because she could be infected and is speaking with no mask on.  If anyone’s a Covid spreader, I’d bet on her rather than the guy about whom she’s complaining.  Good for the captain having her taken off the plane!

So rather coincidentally I reread a piece I did a while ago, Church of the Covidian: Blank-eyed and Mindless, in which I made this observation (bolding added, italics in original replaced with underlining):

Anyway, I was wearing a mask “imperfectly” and the woman ahead of me in the checkout line, double-masked, said “Sir, please stand back”.  Then a few seconds later, she drew farther away as she realized my mask did not fully cover my nose.  “You’re not covered correctly”!

The cashier said “Sir, you need to put your mask on right”.

I called them cowards.  No reaction.  None.  Eyes blank. Not even a scintilla of ire at being insulted.

The cashier then said “It’s the law”.  (I wear a kippa; it was “the law” that people like me had to wear a yellow star, pack their bags as the locals screamed Jews get out! and so on.) Nor did the cashier react when I said “Oh, just following orders…” These are the same people that would turn in non-compliers in a cold second. The same people that would – and I fear will, mob-attack those not “of the body”.

(“Of the body” is a reference to the classic Star Trek episode Return of the Archons.)

Through Surak’s latest, this link (bolding added):

Shkedy equated being unvaxxed with driving under the influence of alcohol. So then: the unvaxxed are (a) criminals, (b) a mortal danger to society, and (c) as likely to kill the innocent as a drunk driver.

Pleading, ‘where is the science’ is futile. The camp of the vaxxed don’t want science, they want compliance. If not compliant you are complicit, a domestic terrorist, an undesirable.

We know what happens next to dangers to society.  Yes, indeed.  Now that the vast majority of people have been gripped by dread for so long, Stage 6 is about complete… and Stage 7 ready to go.

I already mentioned how medical “professionals” are refusing to see unJabbed patients; an example:

Dr. Marraccini has announced that she will no longer treat patients in person if they are not vaccinated against COVID.  Dr. Marraccini claims she is taking this step because she feels that people who are not vaccinated harm other people.

It’s true that she has patients who are immuno-compromised and patients who are undergoing chemotherapy.  No one can deny that COVID can be deadly to such patients.  So can the flu.  However, Dr. Marraccini has not seen fit to deny care to patients based on their flu vaccination status.

Stage 7 already started in China – this is supposedly a short video on where “guests” are being quarantined:



We’re already “filthy animals” per this charmer:


Dread of a subgroup “other” who are considered a dire threat to the majority.  We’ve seen where this goes.  And now… NAZI SYMPATHIZERS PROPOSE YELLOW ARM BANDS FOR UNVAXXED! (rumble.com)

Santayana weeps; we’ve learned nothing.


(Link to AZ Quotes per their policy)


Well, I’ve learned one thing: that when they come to take me to camp for “safety / quarantine”, they mean to end me, and I’ll prefer to go on my terms taking as many as I can with me.  On that:

What Is Coming: Six Pieces – Widest Possible Dissemination




I remember when Bill Barr first came onto the scene – highly praised, it seemed he was one to help Trump drain The Swamp* – and I certainly had high hopes after the RINO squish Jeff Sessions essentially abandoned Trump.  After the 2020 election, I was utterly baffled at Barr’s “There’s no evidence of any significant voter fraud” statement.  Now, not so baffling:



One Year Ago Today Gateway Pundit Reported on a Late Night Ballot Dump at TCF Center in Detroit – Liberal Media Said It Was Fake News – So We Proved it with Video

Never mind the suitcases of ballots, sudden vote dumps in multiple states, votes being pulled from the “R” column to the “D” column, done right on video, etc., etc., etc.  And what about NJ now?  Here:




And… “found ballots”, so convenient.

BREAKING: New Jersey Senate President Won’t Concede to Republican Truck Driver – Says “12,000 Ballots Recently Found in One County”


NJ ELECTION UPDATE: 56 Voting Machines Were Shut Down, Shipped To Warehouse On Election Night In Dem Stronghold County Where Gov Murphy Got Over 113K Votes

More Fraud in New Jersey’s Election Uncovered – Voting Machines Would Not Allow Citizens to Vote for Republican Governor Candidate

So what’s my point?  TINVOWOOT.  We cannot fight a corrupt-to-the-core system from within the system.  The only question in my mind is this: How to step outside the system… because I’m still clinging to the hope that it won’t take The Switch to fix this.  Alas.  Alas, because I suspect and fear I’m clinging in vain.



* This is, IMHO, a misnomer.  Swamps are complex ecosystems – good for an occasional educational visit, but amazing places regardless.  No, DC is more akin to a sewer.
