MUSK ODOR

Business, Canada, Conservatism, Technology, The State, Welfare

Just got an excitably worshipful note from a reader about Elon Musk (who is such an “individualist” that he is currently sulking about being ignored by Democrats).

You know him: The man who has littered the earth with Tesla and now seeks to further pollute space, via rocket producer SpaceX.

There’s the conservatives’ yen for celebrity, of course. But the short memory about—and fixation with—a man who made his fortune off a taxpayer-subsidized industry perplexes.

As for Musk’s “support” for the Canadian truckers: Judging from the overall monies the truckers received; Musk was either a non-player in freedom’s fight or mean in the extreme.

READ:  Like all members of the corporate arm of the Deep-State, Elon Musk, et al. is slippery.

UPDATED (2/20/022): NEW COLUMN: Good Vs. Evil: Canada’s Truckers Battle Justine Trudeau For Us All

NEW COLUMN, “Good Vs. Evil: Canada’s Truckers Battle Justine Trudeau For Us All,” is a “first-rate philippic, says “Musil Protege” (follow him on Twitter). Read the essay on WND, The Unz Review and Townhall.com, where it is slightly abridged for length (“Truck you, Trudeau.”) The piece has also featured on The New American, CNSNews and American Greatness.

Excerpt:

… Picture our heroes. On the one hand, you have working men and women, who already do the most dangerous of jobs, plainly often poorly clothed, trying to keep warm, as the Ottawa Gestapo steal their fuel jerricans and their fire wood. Yet wave the Maple Leaf Flag patriotically the truckers do, as their loathsome overlords level the worst possible pejoratives at them.

On our behalf, the merry band of truckers face a malevolent “alliance of government, social media companies and the mainstream media.” The malicious lies about the country-wide, freedom convoys just keep coming. To wit, not one reporter stateside had discharged his duty to tell the story of the protest. In Quebec, for example, the unvaccinated have been threatened with a fine. Even as Covid was on the wane, morphing from pandemic into mild, endemic illness—Premier Legault’s government saw fit to bar the unvaccinated, masks and all, from big-box stores like Walmart, Costco and Canadian Tire.

On the side of Gangland Government, you have a pompous, vainglorious, plodder press, and mean-minded media bad mouthing good people. And a cowardly, morally craven prime minister who initially ran from his official residence, rather than meet with a large swath of the Canadian people, whom he assiduously blackens as marginal, insufferable and unsavory.
Juxtapose truckers and families, the epitome of storybook goodness, with the charmed circle of that privileged ponce, Justine Trudeau. Words fail. In fact, my good friends at Junge Freiheit, a German weekly of excellence, had requested I write a 5,000-word piece about Justine. My reply:

“Trudeau is not worth 5,000 words—for how do you write so much about a nullity?” I’ve come up with just the right number of words for him. Here they are:

Trudeau is a dim dilettante, who inherited wealth, but no sense of noblesse oblige and none of his fabled father’s smarts and charisma. Just look at sonny boy’s mincing stride, sausaged as he is in designer suits. Observe the vain coif, the pasty, rapidly aging (from moral rot à la Dorian Gray) doughy face and hollow gaze, so like that of his mom, Margaret.

Justine was practically conceived and raised at the debauch Studio 54. In all his forced, affectatious attempts at gravitas, this dirigiste is now telling Canada’s salt of the earth, the truckers, to turn tail and return to life as his much-maligned second-class subjects.

A look at Trudeau’s demonic deeds and his vacant demeanor and one is reminded of the words of famed French novelist Jules Renard: “I don’t know if God exists, but it would be better for his reputation if he didn’t.”

Trudeau has inflicted horrifying material destruction and lasting moral damage. He has battered the truckers but not bettered them. It’s time for this dreck, this spawn of Studio 54, to go on home, for good. Good people want no truck with Trudeau. …

… READ THE REST. NEW COLUMN IS “Good Vs. Evil: Canada’s Truckers Battle Justine Trudeau For Us All“, now on WND, The Unz Review and Townhall.com. (“Truck you, Trudeau.”) Or on The New American and CNSNews.

UPDATE (2/18/022): I love my appreciative, supportive readers. Via Gab:

You are a brilliant writer. Your ‘not worth 5,000 words’ piece for your German friends is spot on. Full of masterful double-entendres and hints left between the lines that perhaps only Canadians of a certain age would get. But lots of meat there for anyone who wants to follow the breadcrumbs. Worth a follow for sure.

Tucker And The Trucker: Condescending About Canada; Wrong About American South

America, Canada, Juvenal Early's Archive, Liberty, Race, Racism, The South, The State

Tucker Carlson: “Canada, they always steal our ideas and produce a slightly shoddy copy of them.”

Tucker Carlson’s segment, “There’s no more fearful despot than Canada’s Prime Minister,” is an important one. However, as a Canadian (an American too), who grasps very well the fundamental differences between Canada and America—Americans think they are God’s Country and operate with such imprimatur; Canadians don’t—I found it was remarkably condescending, as the famous and important host cackled that, “Canada always steals our ideas and produces a slightly shoddy copy of them.”

I have pinpointed and analyzed the differences I experienced personally between Canada and the US in an interview series with Dissident Mama: “Ilana Mercer, part 1: Roots, writing, & resistance” and “Ilana Mercer, part 2: Lady Paleolibertarian.”

To the extent Canadians have aped American state legislation and cultural trends; they lose. To the extent they stick with their more reserved, understated, quieter, far-better spoken civility and civilization; they win. On the whole, the Canadian State is usually far less menacing to its citizens than is the American State to its legal inhabitants. The US jailed Conrad Black; not Canada. And even when they reproduce their facsimile of the prototypical, American, TV Fox News blonde, Canadians do it better: Witness Lauren Southern versus dummy Tomi Lahren. (Oy! And my Dutch relative tells me Holland is now producing what is considered in The Netherlands déclassé, hackneyed, American-style TV blonds. Tucker already had one on!)

Juvenal Early, a regular writer for Barely A Blog, was furious:

“Tucker disgusted me with his coverage of the truckers last night. He asked one of them to refute the leftist assertion of racism in the crowd. What does that have to do with the vaccine mandate protest? Tucker also continues to demonize the Confederacy and the battle flag. Among real Southern right wingers, that’s a big non-starter.”

The Confederate flag segment is at the 13:00 minute mark.  The trucker interview starts at 16:45 and goes until 19 minutes.

Don’t Be A Pollyanna: The COVID Booster Racket Is Here To Stay, For Now

Argument, Constitution, COVID-19, Healthcare, The State

It doesn’t work: The COVID booster doesn’t stop the boosted from catching and transmitting Covid-19.  The booster may stop serious disease and hospitalization for some months, but then, an already overburdened immune system must be boosted again, if alleged protection against death and hospitalization is to last. And maybe not. There are no guarantees even of this promise. The European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) head of vaccines strategy has sounded something as close to a warning as one can hope: “repeated vaccinations within short intervals will not represent a sustainable long term strategy.”

Logically, these frequent vaccine boosts could damage the immune system. Circuitously, and by hedging their words—the medicrats admit as much:

The World Health Organization cautions that, while “protection against severe disease is more likely to be preserved, more data on vaccine effectiveness, particularly against hospitalization, severe disease, and death are needed.”

In other words, they just don’t know.

On the basis of the above consensus, veteran Covid-19 commentators on the Right have heralded a victory against the futile coercive vaccine and booster mandates that are largely ineffective and unnecessary for the broad, relatively healthy population.

“It’s over, people. Aside from a few unlucky Israelis, no one is going to receive a fourth dose of the original vaccine; everyone with eyes can see it doesn’t work against Omicron.”

So says Alex Berenson:

Now the World Health Organization has waved the white flag on Covid vaccine boosters too.

WHO released a statement about Covid vaccines yesterday. It’s filled with the usual public health jargon and ass-covering, but one line stands out:

a vaccination strategy based on repeated booster doses of the original vaccine composition is unlikely to be appropriate or sustainable.

It’s over, people. …

Instead the WHO is now promising/demanding vaccines based on whatever the dominant Sars-Cov-2 strain is at the moment.

That promise is as empty as all the others the health bureaucrats and vaccine companies have made.

At least five major variants (“variants of concern”) have developed in the last year, and two have become globally dominant. Even the mRNA vaccines cannot be cooked up and delivered fast enough to match whatever strain of virus becomes dominant. Covid is faster than the scientists.

This is all true. Virus variants crop-up faster than vaccines can be cooked-up. Vaccines will afford at most, “weeks of marginally improved protection for potentially severe side effects.”

The Omicron is currently the dominant variant (and in my opinion, weaker variants like it will evolve optimally to perpetuate themselves by skipping from host to host without killing them).

Vaccine makers know that “the virus is evolving new mutations faster than vaccine makers can keep up.” Despite that, “In public statements, Pfizer claimed it could deliver an Omicron-based vaccine by March 2022 if needed.” So why are they proceeding to develop and manufacture an Omicron-specific vaccine planned for when Omicron will have peaked or morphed or both?

Behind them, vaccine manufacturers have the power of the state. They know full-well that even if their newly manufactured potions miss the medical mark—they have behind them the state’s unconstitutional, coercive measures as a guarantee to help flog their (practically compulsory) products. So long as rights-violations to bodily integrity endure and are allowed—Big Pharma has made a safe investment in manufacturing more mismatched or useless drugs.
