Headlines I Nearly Read Today

Trump admits he hid the virus because he thought it would only kill Democrats.

COVID-19 invades the brain, makes victims feel like they have a bad flu.

Biden promises if elected, he will mandate private isolation chambers for all Americans.

Polls show Biden now leading Trump by triple digits.

Pandemics and Freedoms

Most Koreans are currently furious with that proportion of the Christian minority which, having been vilified and demonized by the Moon Jae-in government for months due to their desire to pray together in spite of COVID-19, has taken to holding public demonstrations in Seoul and elsewhere in protest of the government’s restrictions on church gatherings.  The government, in response to these conscientious objectors,...

Big Day in Alt-Right News

Followers of the special sub-cult of progressive hatred and civilizational suicide known as the alternative right (alt-right) have enjoyed a unique thrill ride over the past twenty-four hours, as two of the loosely-affiliated and even more loosely-anchored “movement’s” most familiar nuts, Steve Bannon and Vladimir Putin, have made headlines in the way alt-right leaders are wont to do, i.e., for criminal behavior.  First...

Microsoft News Normalizes Chinese Propaganda

This morning, scrolling through my Microsoft News default homepage, I saw a large feature article photo and headline: “Hong Kong troublemakers colluding with external forces must face severe punishment: central gov’t office.” Finding this a peculiarly uncritical tone in which to be reciting the Chinese Communist Party’s bunk, I clicked the link to this story, which turned out to be an actual English...

On Those Who Are Not Getting Sick

The most disturbing and dangerous aspect of The Pandemic that Ate a Planet, according to our friends at Chicken Little News (the official information forum of foxywoxy.gov), is the fact that such a high proportion of its victims never get sick, as though it would somehow be better if a higher proportion of the infected required hospitalization. In this irrational End-Times climate of...

Reflections: Caught With One’s Pants Down

Given the continuous coronavirus fearmongering and demands for lockdowns and mask mandates, combined with endless expert “advisories” declaring that there can be no return to even some parts of normal life on this planet until there is a COVID-19 vaccine, common sense dictates that we — I mean all of us on Earth — are about to be confronted with new universal compulsory...

COVID Context

I just finished reading an interesting medical study published in October, 2019, regarding annual flu mortality rates. Given its currency and subject matter, it would be precisely the sort of study that would be getting cited by the news media and government health authorities, if those entities had an interest in providing useful context against which citizens might evaluate the COVID-19 pandemic for...

Seoul Mayor Commits Suicide

I don’t do “breaking news” here in Limbo, but since I live in Korea, perhaps a word or two of first impressions would be in order, in light of the news that long-time Seoul mayor Park Won-soon has committed suicide after being accused of sexual harassment by a former secretary. This accusation is especially humiliating, in this nation built on pretenses of spotless...

A Stellar First Term

In the three and a half years since Donald Trump became President of the United States, and thus the informal but historically relevant “leader of the free world,” Xi Jinping has established himself as China’s “president” for life, becoming a more powerful dictator than Chairman Mao ever dreamed of being; Vladimir Putin has established himself as Russia’s “president” for life, ensuring that, barring...

A Quick Survey from West to East

Much of the United States of America is under police state social controls these days, due to mass panic and massive infantile self-absorption over a virus pandemic that is roughly one-fifth illness and four-fifths progressive authoritarian propaganda. Meanwhile, all of the U.S., along with substantial portions of the rest of the “developed world,” is on social justice lockdown, systematically and ruthlessly dismantling history...
