There are lots of narratives spinning Dr. Fauci’s role in the pandemic* – including his self-serving ones. Which to believe? Maybe none. Diogenes might not find an honest man or woman anywhere among today’s narrative makers.
The Mississippi Joint Legislative Committee on Performance Evaluation and Expenditure Review issues an annual report on the state’s defined benefit pension system. Normally, the PEER report tends to be moderate in its analysis of PERS, but this one released on May 11 admits that demographics, lower than expected wage inflation by contributing members and lower than expected investment returns are combining to scuttle the plan’s bottom line.
While the heavy ‘fog of war’ still lingers over the pandemic battlefield, people can be excused for not realizing that America is in the midst of a monumental economic transition. This mega-transition is the switch from internal combustion engines (ICE) that burn fossil fuels to electric powered vehicles (EVs). This is a big deal with the current nationwide fleet of vehicles estimated at 276 million of which EVs make up less than 2%.
COVID-19 has been labeled a pandemic. It should probably be labeled pandemic* ( to note unnatural – manmade or Batwoman made). It is reported to have caused or to have been involved in 3.5 million deaths to date. That’s about 4/100 of 1% of the world’s 7.9 billion inhabitants today. It wouldn’t register on the Richter scale of historic pandemics – if there were such a thing. But it happened in the age of ubiquitous iPhones and Androids, talking heads, scripted narratives, and social media censorship.
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 includes $350 billion in funding for States, Tribal governments, counties, cities, and small local governments. How those funds can be used, at this point at least, is defined in a “guidance” document from the U.S. Treasury Department and detailed in a 158-page “Interim Final Rule.” Because it’s an “interim final” instead of a “final” rule, any of the following could be changed in the future.
The Bat Lady is a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. Her name is Dr. Shi Zheng-li . She goes on virus-hunting expeditions in bat caves and does “gain of function” genetic manipulations on coronaviruses to make them more infectious and more deadly to humans. The COVID-19 pandemic may have begun in her lab — which was funded in part by U.S. taxpayers.
