Two running compendiums but ‘nothing to see here, move along’

Is America In A Civil Disobedience Mood? I & I Editorial Board – “Every COVID-19 death is tragic for that victim and his or her family and friends. But the death of liberty is catastrophic for all but the few who make the rules that restrict our freedom. Entire populations, not just a small portion, are lost when liberty dies. The effects linger for generations.”

A Running Compendium of Fraud Charges in Election 2020. The Editors, RealClearInvestigations – “Many allegations advanced by the president, his surrogates and supporters have been challenged and some have been dismissed by courts or debunked. … Still, in numerous instances, media fact checkers have not been diligent.” … “Below is a running, selective collection of hyperlinked articles detailing charges of ballot irregularities or electronic fraud being made in various states, especially key battlegrounds such as Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania.”

Election Fraud, Political Corruption, and its Consequences. Clarice Feldman – “It’s not new, but the scope of it is breathtaking. The Heritage Foundation has compiled an election fraud database, sampling the many proven instances of election fraud, which you are welcome to review. I cannot dispute their conclusion”

No, The Georgia Vote-Counting Video Was Not ‘Debunked.’ Not Even Close. Mollie Hemingway – “A Big Tech-backed ‘fact’ ‘checking’ outfit claimed to debunk explosive evidence for Republicans’ claims of significant election problems in Georgia. It didn’t.” The lies and denial are blatant and in your face and insistent. This is the core problem.

Is The President Our Daddy Who’s Supposed To Keep Us Healthy? I & I Editorial Board – “Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, much to the delight of the Democratic press, maligned President Donald Trump last week over the coronavirus pandemic, calling his leadership “a great human tragedy.” Are we alone continually puzzled as to why the head of the federal government is being held responsible for sickness and death from a natural cause?”

“There’s No Science Claim On This” – O’Leary Lashes Out At State Lockdowns As CNBC’s Sorkin Does Damage Control. Tyler Durden – “we’d really enjoy hearing Sorkin explain “the science” of how Big Box stores are “completely different” from restaurants and churches. … The only problem with that utter falsehood is that most of California has been wearing masks outside for months… as have numerous other states with mask mandates… and it’s not helping!”

“As we near a year of lockdowns and sheltering in place, the long-term effects of pandemic policy on the economy are becoming clearer. Almost every piece of legislation ostensibly designed to curb the spread of the coronavirus and protect workers has wreaked devastation on small businesses—while benefiting the largest corporations. Roughly 100,000 small businesses have permanently closed due to COVID-19, while big-box retailers, tech giants, and pharmaceutical manufacturers have seen record profits.
…
Despite the fact that these policies are explicitly harmful to small businesses, they can be justified on the basis of “public health” and thereby shielded from criticism.

For The First Time, A US State Will Require Disclosure Of PCR ‘Cycle Threshold’ Data In COVID Tests. Tyler Durden – “Numerous epidemiological experts have argued that cycle thresholds are an important metric by which patients, the public, and policymakers can make more informed decisions about how infectious and/or sick an individual with a positive COVID-19 test might be.” … “We hope, for the sake of Americans’ livelihoods it is Option 3 [pro-science] and the ‘casedemic’ will collapse on itself and allow we, the people to go back to some sense of normality.”

Nevada climate strategy outlines framework to phase out natural gas, electrify transportation. Daniel Rothberg – “what scientists say is an imperative for governments across the country to prevent the worst effects of a warming world — skyrocketing heat, extreme wildfires, limited water supplies.” … “the state established a framework that looked at each recommendation using four metrics: a policy’s potential for decreasing emissions, climate justice considerations, economic implications and the legal feasibility of implementing a policy.” and you think the pandemic panic as irrational? Climate Justice?

“The report said “a potential first step in a phased transition from gas would be to allow consumers the choice between gas and electric on existing buildings but require all-electric in new construction.
…
At the same time, the action needed to address climate change can also disproportionately affect marginalized communities, often least responsible for creating the problem.

Climate justice activists in Nevada are concerned with both issues. They said the report was a starting point, but they hope to see more direct climate justice policies in the future.

Move away from what supplies 70% of the current energy load to something that is inherently less efficient for heating and comes from sources yet to be identified? Fantasy with numbers is the first issue to address for those who want to divorce from carbon based fuels.
