Good morning and Happy Daylight-Savings-Time Monday, C&C! You get a nice early roundup today because I feel terrific, just a teeny-tiny sore throat left over from my weekend cold. All my covid protocols seem to also work well for any respiratory infection. Weird!
Plan to vote tomorrow, or if you’ve already voted, to help get someone to the polls who otherwise might not have gone.
Today’s jam-packed roundup includes: a terrific multiplier assignment, get ready!; SNL mocks Biden; Trump endorses DeSantis and other Republican candidates; Nikki Fried is a loser; Florida Republicans crush early voting; Michigan Muslims are getting sick and tired of democrats; Florida arrests fraudulent multiple-state voters; Florida’s Board of Medicine outlaws “gender affirming” medical procedures; loony leftist Kathy Griffin gets suspended from Twitter; CDC says we’re in a flu emergency and you’ll never guess which areas are hardest hit; the Federalist pans Oster’s pandemic amnesty; new Qatar study shows no statistical benefit from jabs for kids; and a second, funnier SNL clip for you showing the covid narrative is probably completely deflated now.
Today is also Florida’s very first “Victims of Communism Day,” brought to you by the Florida Legislature and Governor DeSantis. Please take a moment to reflect on the hundreds of millions of people murdered over the last 80 years by that particularly reprehensible ideology.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 NEW MULTIPLIER ORDERS. It’s working! We put the idea out there last week, and we’re moving the needle. Arizona’s gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake just announced she rejects covid amnesty, and stressed that she wants COVID ACCOUNTABILITY instead.

Our C&C strategy is to multiply people and candidates who are also moving the needle in the right direction, no pun intended, so we can send a message, not just to that candidate, but to any other candidates also considering moving in the right direction.
Today we’re multiplying the very first candidate to endorse covid accountability: Kari Lake.
If you already know the drill, here’s the link (remember to end your donation in a $2).
If you haven’t joined a multiplier before, here’s how it works. Just click on the link and donate any affordable amount — no matter how small — as long as it ends in a ‘2’. You can do $2, $12, $22, $200, $222, or even $0.22. It only takes a minute. The ‘2’ is a flag alerting the candidate it came from us, because we support covid accountability.
We’ll flood their donations with amounts ending in a ‘2’.
Do it now! You’ll be back here to finish today’s awesome post in fewer than sixty seconds. Here’s the link again.
PLEASE HELP. Yes, you! When everyone pitches in, it keeps it affordable for everybody. The key to multipliers is, because we ALL join in, none of us needs to donate an amount that we’d notice. And the candidates also benefit from the QUANTITY of donations, no matter how big or small each one is, because the massive volume of the response shows them grassroots support.
Don’t forget, Kari Lake WILL be attacked for her call for covid accountability. Let’s show her it was worth it.

🗞*WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🔥 First, and you are not going to believe this, SNL mocked Joe Biden and the whole democrat slate of candidates this weekend:
SNL ROASTS Joe Biden and cringe Democrat candidates in flamethrower sketch for 5 minutes straight 🔥

It was a mild mocking, but still.
I ask again: WHO are the democrats going to run for President in 2024? Surely not Kamala.
🔥 Yesterday, at his rally in South Florida, President Trump (finally) endorsed Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign for Florida Governor. The endorsement was especially welcome after Trump’s ill-timed crack against the mega-popular governor the day before.
Of interest, Trump endorsed a slate of Florida candidates in attendance, including former Senate President Wilton Simpson for Agriculture Commissioner.

Simpson is running to replace odious pot-merchant Nikki Fried. The office is especially important to Floridians, not least because Florida is an agriculture-heavy state, but also because the Ag Commissioner issues concealed weapons permits, for some reason.
Ms. Fried had a major setback late last week when a Florida court dismissed her loopy lawsuit seeking to override a federal law preventing pot smokers (anyone “who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance”) from getting concealed weapons permits.
Just in: A Florida federal judge has thrown out a suit, brought by Florida Ag Commissioner Nicole Fried, challenging a federal rule barring medical cannabis users from owning firearms.
9:09 PM ∙ Nov 4, 20222Likes3Retweets
The judge noted that no state can decriminalize marijuana while it remains illegal under federal law. He wrote:
In 2016, Florida stopped criminalizing the medical use of marijuana. Many people refer to this change as Florida’s “legalizing” medical marijuana, but Florida did no such thing. It couldn’t. … Indeed, federal law “designates marijuana as contraband for any purpose” and “prohibits entirely its possession.”
Sorry Nikki, you lose! Loser. The decision was not a good sign for the pot promoter, who is heading into tomorrow’s elections with little to recommend her.
📈 As of yesterday, Florida Republicans secured their lead in early voting, now closed, with 972,396 votes booked compared to only 522,150 for Democrats. (338,496 no-party-affiliated voters cast a ballot during early voting.) Democrats maintain a slight lead in mail-in ballots, with 1.03 million returns to the GOP’s 888,328.
Over a week ago, Florida Republicans took the lead in overall votes, and they haven’t let up. Heading into Sunday, 1,860,724 registered Republicans had turned out compared to 1,554,429 Democrats — a gap of 306,295 votes.
🔥 Yesterday I reported how formerly deep-blue Miami Dade is trending Republican in early voting, probably showing that the democrats have permanently lost Cubanos.
The NY Times is reporting that Florida’s most populous county, Miami-Dade, may well flip to Republican in the Florida governor’s race for the first time in 20 years. “It should be a massive warning sign to Democratic leaders across the country.”11:12 PM ∙ Nov 5, 2022835Likes80Retweets
Now, it’s starting to look like CRT and trans-education issues have also woken up Michigan Muslims.
Why as a Muslim, I will not vote for Democrats …
7:09 PM ∙ Nov 5, 202239,788Likes9,859Retweets
I wonder what Michigan would look like if its gigantic Muslim community shifted red?
🔥 Michigan Muslims probably won’t be too happy that Dana Nessel, Michigan’s Democrat Attorney General would like to install a drag queen in every public school in Michigan. In the clip below, she shouts, “Drag queens make everything better! Drag queens are fun! Drag queens are entertainment! … A drag queen for every school! That is what would be fun for kids and lift them up when they are having emotional issues.”
This is Dana Nessel, Michigan’s Democrat Attorney General, calling for every school in Michigan to have a drag queen to “lift up” “kids who have emotional issues”. If you vote Democrat, this is what you’re voting for along with child mutilation.

In case you missed it, here’s what Dana Nessel thinks fun entertainment for kids looks like, courtesy of our friends at Libs of TikTok.
🔥 Over the weekend, Florida announced more election-violation arrests, this time including Cheryl Ann Leslie, who stands accused of voting in multiple states during the 2016, 2018, and 2020 elections.
Election Wizard 🇺🇸 @ElectionWiz
BREAKING (Tallahassee, Fla.) — Florida Election Crime Unit announces arrest of Cheryl Ann Leslie, accused of voting in multiple states during the 2016, 2018, and 2020 elections. Leslie has booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on felony charges.8:34 PM ∙ Nov 4, 202211,015Likes3,541Retweets
I’ll give you one guess which political party Ms. Leslie always votes for.
🔥 Get ready for a possible whole new crop of democrat election integrity complainers to sprout after tomorrow’s results. Remember, if they deny the election results, they are ELECTION DENIERS, SEDITIONERS, and INSURRECTIONISTS!
🔥 On Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine accepted its committee’s recommendation and voted to ban “gender affirming” procedures in Florida as acceptable medical practices. Doctors who violate the policy can lose their medical license.
Failed gasbag and democrat gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist responded to the announcement by attacking — for some reason — Florida’s highly-credentialed Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, calling him a “hack.”
DeSantis War Room 🐊 #GOTV @DeSantisWarRoom
Yesterday, the Florida Board of Medicine officially approved a rule restricting the use of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery to treat gender dysphoria in children & teens. Failed billboard lawyer @CharlieCrist reacted by calling @FLSurgeonGen Dr. Ladapo a “quack”.

Crist is confused, again. Dr. Ladapo does not run the Board of Medicine. He’s also a Harvard-trained doctor. CRIST is a hack.
🔥 Bloody-anti-Trumper and so-called comedian Kathy Griffin was temporarily suspended from Twitter yesterday for recklessly impersonating the social media giant’s new owner, Elon Musk.
Hilariously, Elon said loony leftist Griffin was suspended for “impersonating a comedian.”

💉 On Friday, Fortune ran an article headlined, “The U.S. Is Officially in a Flu Epidemic, Federal Health Officials Say. They’re Preparing to Deploy Troops and Ventilators if Necessary.”
The CDC announced flu hospitalizations are higher than they’ve been at this point since 2011’s flu season. For some baffling reason, the country is seeing a resurgence of non-covid respiratory illnesses like flu, RSV, rhinovirus, and enterovirus.
It’s almost like instead of an epidemic of random respiratory viruses, there’s an epidemic of immune suppression, or something. And you’ll never guess where it’s hitting hardest.
Last week, California’s Orange County declared a state of emergency, due to an “overwhelming surge in pediatric respiratory illness that’s pushing hospitals to their limits.” Children’s Hospital of Orange County reported seeing upwards of 400 children daily in its E.R..
In jab-happy California. Imagine that.
Fortune also reported that Canada is seeing similar problems, with some pediatric hospitals canceling surgeries. Last week, Children’s Pediatric Hospital of Eastern Ontario reached 130% capacity for ICU beds and 134% capacity for inpatient beds.
In jab-happy Canada. Imagine that.
Dr. Anita Patel, a critical care doctor at Children’s National hospital in Washington, D.C., told Fortune on Tuesday that “I can honestly say that, unfortunately, with both RSV and the flu, we have had kids that needed to be intubated or have breathing tubes to help get through viral illness,” she said. “I’ve been a practicing ICU doctor for a decade now, and I think I can safely say this is one of the worst surges I’ve ever seen.”
In jab-happy D.C.. Imagine that.
Fortune was careful to mention many times that it is NOT COVID, it’s all the bugs that disappeared during the pandemic. Because if it were covid, that would be crazy, since we’ve double-jabbed 75% of Americans.
Historically, flu usually affects kids the LEAST. Thanks, experts!
It’s one more thing to add to the accountability list…
🔥 Last week, the Federalist ran a terrific op-ed by Justin Hart headlined, “Public Health Elites Who Pushed Anti-Science Policies Deserve Accountability, Not ‘Amnesty’.”
Check out this deliciously-worded sub-headline, “Fear-mongering virus prophets that prided themselves on public health damaged public trust more than anything else.”
Fear-mongering virus prophets! That might be even better than whitecoat pretenders.
Hart’s op-ed pushed back on Professor Oster’s ill-timed call for ‘covid amnesty,’ which Hart accurately labeled “a pre-emptive request for forgiveness.” Hart’s not letting Oster hide behind her Jane-come-lately support for school reopenings, either. He reminded readers about Oster’s disgusting December 2021 tweet:
Hart’s op-ed is well written, timely, and right on point, but the most interesting aspect was that it was published at all, in a mainstream outlet, even if a conservative one.
💉 On Saturday, Team Reality’s stalwart epidemiologist Tracy Beth Høeg reported on a new Qatar study concluding that jabbed kids showed the same amount of severe covid or covid hospitalizations, when compared to unjabbed kids.
Tracy Høeg, MD, PhD @TracyBethHoeg
🇶🇦Qatari study in @NEJM of pfizer in prev uninfected kids during omicron No severe disease in vax or unvax groups 12-17 cumulative incidence ~same @ 165 days 5-11 VE -9.5 @ >4 mos “Our findings suggest the need to reconsider the value & strategies of vaccinating healthy children”
3:12 PM ∙ Nov 5, 20222,077Likes776Retweets
The researchers concluded, “Our findings suggest the need to reconsider the value & strategies of vaccinating healthy children in the omicron era with the use of currently available vaccines.”
The study did report some transitory additional benefit from the jabs in protecting older kids from INFECTIONS, supposing it was because they got a higher dosage. Of course, finding something nice to say about the jabs is a necessary precondition for publication. But the researchers admitted that the trial was not randomized or blinded, so the participants knew their own jab status.
It doesn’t matter. We already know the jabs don’t prevent infection. The question is whether, as the CDC claims, they reduce hospitalizations and deaths. This study says no.
Or, maybe they just need to jab harder! Wheeee
Here’s a link to the study, which was a little hard to find.
🔥 Finally, in a C&C first — two SNL clips in one roundup — SNL also mocked covid (and a little more J6, for fun):

Cue Dr. Karen! This is an outrage! How dare you mock a deadly disease that’s killed millions, and so forth.
Seriously, though, who doubts that SNL is publishing the new, fully deflated covid narrative? Move on!
Okay, my darling procrastinators. Here’s the Kari Lake donation link one last time. Do it now!
And then have a marvelous, magnificent Monday! Make your voting plans, if you haven’t yet voted. If you have, figure out how to multiply the vote by getting one more person there. Call a care home or something! And I’ll see you back here tomorrow for the big red day.
