Happy Friday, C&C! There you go — zip! — the short week is over. In today’s roundup: A fantastic new multiplier; Dr. Gold flies the coop; DOJ appeals special master order; parents in Idaho beat grooming festival; polls beat the Giant Mouse; Disney goes full Satan; Biden hires monkeypox satanist; another comedian suddenly and unexpectedly bites the dust; a retro gold rush in Germany; Russians torch Europe’s gas — literally; and wait till you see the latest Swedish thermostat mandate.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 OPERATION MULTIPLIER: New orders, C&C Army! September’s operation multiplier target is Christopher Rufo, who nearly single-handedly shifted the national discussion about improper premature sexualization of children. He’s driving leftists crazy; because Rufo has dared to commit most of his time to online advocacy to help kids, lefties are so outraged and appalled that they accidentally mismatched their spiked heels with their nail polish.
Chris is shaping the national discussion. To give you an idea of Rufo’s reach, Governor DeSantis’ press secretary frequently replies to his tweets.
If you’re new to C&C, about once a month, we all work together to “multiply” our individual reach, to send a LOUD message to corporate media and anti-civilization activists that we may not have a George Soros, but there is still a lot of power in our numbers. It takes less than a minute! So click the link below RIGHT NOW and give any affordable amount ending in a ‘2,’ so he’ll know it came from the Coffee & Covid army.
Here’s the link: https://donorbox.org/christopher-f-rufo. Be sure to click the “One Time” button if you don’t want to make it a recurring donation. Donate any amount that you can easily afford, ending in a 2 — for example, $2, $12, $22, or any round number with two cents, like $5.02.
Do it now! It only takes a second. Then read the rest of today’s post. We’re asking EVERYBODY to help. Just give whatever you can afford. It adds up. Our last multiplier raised $175,000 for Dr. Simone Gold. We raised a similar amount for Senator Ron Johnson, Moms for Liberty, and raised meaningful donations for many others.
Here’s the link again: https://donorbox.org/christopher-f-rufo. Take one minute and do it! You’re going to feel great after, I PROMISE.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🔥 An Epoch Times reporter called me late last night for a comment on the just-released news that Dr. Simone Gold will be released from federal prison this morning before her sentence is up, for good behavior. She was sentenced to 60 days in federal prison on a first-time misdemeanor trespassing charge.
This really frustrates Democrat hopes that Gold would rot in prison.
When I visited Dr. Gold in Miami’s Fort Knox-like Federal Detention Center recently, she was working on two books, was counseling a bunch of inmates, and was digging into her cell mate’s legal case to see if she could help. Just as you’d expect from that human dynamo.
The press release from America’s Frontline Doctors says Dr. Gold will be holding a live press conference this morning at 11am EST. If it were me, I’d probably want to go home first, get a shower, have a three-course breakfast, and get out of the orange jumpsuit.
But Dr. Gold is raring to go.
Dr. Gold’s assistant, Lisa Andrzejewski, pointed out to the Epoch Times that the doctor has been fully vindicated:
“[The publicity over her early release is] giving her more of an advantage to do so, especially with everything that’s coming out now, how she basically was right. We knew she was right, but they kept discrediting her. Everything’s coming out now, and she’s ready for the fight.”
Welcome back, Dr. Gold!
🔥 Multiple media sources reported yesterday that the Department of Justice has appealed Judge Cannon’s order appointing a special master to oversee the Biden Raid case. It’s the right move for the feds, because what the FBI does NOT want is any oversight.
The appeal takes the case to the 11th Circuit in Atlanta, where most legal pundits think the order has a good chance of surviving. I’ll be able to comment more once we see the government’s appellate brief.
📉 The Idaho Olympian ran a story yesterday headlined, “As Sponsors Drop Out, Boise Pride Festival Drops Drag Kids Event Over Safety Concerns.”
Last week and this week, local Idaho parent groups pressured sponsors to cancel their support for the “Boise Pride Festival” — another festival, it’s always festivals , why is it always festivals? — because it included an appalling event called “Drag Kids” — featuring boys as young as 11 years old.
After parents and Idaho groups began loudly (but politely) complaining, a slew of organizations backtracked and pulled their financial commitments to the ‘festival,’ including Zions Bank, the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare, and Idaho Power, festival organizers announced yesterday that they’d “made the very difficult decision to postpone this performance due to increase safety concerns.”
Safety concerns? I think they meant the festival’s BUDGET’s safety.
The Festival didn’t like it, but had no choice but to pull the “show.” Still, their announcement tried to save face by doubling-down on the “drag kids” concept, promising that soon “we will make it our top priority to bring these kids the safe and incredible show that they deserve.”
And we will make it our top priority to STOP the next safe and incredible kids’ drag show.
The festival’s announcement is signed, “Riley Burrows, co-producer and host, Drag Kids.” Here’s courageous child-sexual-performance-art advocate Riley Burrows (I think):
Is it just me, or is there a ‘type’ with these folks? And, I’ll be honest, I don’t know any real, biological, XX-chromosomed women who dress or act like this. So who are they REALLY impersonating?
📉 The Mouse is looking more and more like a Rat to many Americans, according to the latest polling.
WPA Intelligence surveyed registered voters about how they felt about various media groups. Most media providers — Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, and Apple, rated high with all voters; almost all of them were over 80% favorable.
One media company stood out, though. Disney. Almost half of Republicans view the “family friendly” company UNFAVORABLY, with only 37% of Republicans having favorable feelings toward the long-standing provider. Nearly 30% of independents were equally disgusted with the Mouse as Republicans.
In total, only 51% of Americans surveyed were positive toward Disney. That’s a huge fall from grace for the Mouse: In March 2021, 77% of Americans said they were favorable. That’s a precipitous plunge.
This is a real accomplishment for Disney’s woke corporate managers. It’s almost like they’re TRYING to wreck the brand. Even Netflix — infamous “Cuties” producer — scored well above the legacy media company.
In a normal world, this kind of bad news would result in a major shakeup in top management.
But not at Disney! They just announced with great relish a new animated series on their FX channel about a woman who has a one-night-stand with Satan, gets pregnant, and delivers the Antichrist. The show is about how hard it is to be a single mom and stuff while dealing with a cantankerous absentee father who happens to be the Father of Lies and summons demons, and the day-to-day challenges faced by a daughter whose Dad is a fallen angel who is also the Prince of Hell.
The show is called, “Trolling Christians,” oops, sorry, I mean “Disney Doubles Down,” sorry, my mistake, I mean “Little Satan.” Satan will be voiced by mega-star Danny DeVito, who is making a bizarre career choice. I am not making any of this up.
This pic is from a Disney promo for the show, showing the anti-heroic mom summoning some kind of infernal assistance before doing the laundry or something, and it’s one of the milder images making the rounds:
If Christians needed any better evidence that we are in the End Times than the top family entertainment company in the world gleefully producing a big-budget, all-star cartoon series featuring satanic imagery, witchcraft, nudity and violence, and titled “Little Satan,” I don’t know what to tell you.
The funniest thing about all this is how corporate media has mocked Christians for decades as conspiracy theorists whenever they complained that Disney was SNEAKING satanic imagery into their programming. Dumb Christians! Religious nut jobs. They think they see satan everywhere. Disney is a family company, they’d never do that! Please.
Uh huh. I think I’ll sell some more Disney stock short.
Also, it’s going to be hard to pick the title picture for today’s post. Too many delicious options.
🔥 Speaking of satan, Joe Biden just appointed a new health czar, who is also an open satanist and a festival expert. Biden appointed Demetre Daskalakis to be the United States’ new “White House National Monkeypox Response Deputy Coordinator.”
Well, since people always say I’m too critical of these Biden officials, and trying to be positive, I can admit that Daskalakis looks fully qualified to run the monkeypox operation. He appears to have some solid experience with ‘festivals.’ So.
The appointment should also delight Democrat voters because Daskalakis checks a lot of ‘diversity’ boxes, especially religious diversity. Too bad he’s pasty white and looks like a neo-nazi. No offense intended.
Shut up, Christians, quit whining. (And keep praying.)
💉 On Saturday, comedian David Arnold, 54, alum of several Netflix comedy specials and creator of Nickelodeon’s “That Girl Lay Lay,” posted a video of his intense weightroom workout to his social media for his fans to enjoy.
Three days later he was dead.
Arnold died suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday, three days into his most recent comedy tour. The statement from his family said doctors concluded Arnold’s sudden death was from “natural causes.” Sure, it’s totally natural.
Natural causes have really been hell on comedians the last year or so.
🚀 Following the shutdown of Russian gas lines, there’s a new gold rush on in Germany. A stone-age gold rush. A gold rush for wood. Germans are cutting up wooden park benches and decks and everything else that isn’t made of steel or plastic, and are invading forests to cut down their trees.
Hello? Environmentalists? Climate people?
Armstrong economics published an article last week titled, “Germans Stockpiling Firewood.” The article explains that Google search results for “brennholz” (firewood) peaked this August in Germany, after German officials announced the country will continue supporting Ukraine — indefinitely. Makes sense. This will show those nasty Russians.
Reports indicate that retail firewood is GONE in Germany, the fibrous resource is being stolen in truckloads, and imports from other countries are going up in flames. Germans are hoarding piles and piles firewood in their backyards and even hiring guards to protect their splintery stashes.
Meanwhile in Russia, the price of energy dropped again. It’s not working, so they need to sanction harder!
🚀 Meanwhile, the Russians have angered environmentalists again, this time because they are burning up $10M dollars a day of natural gas in Finland. This is the gas coming down the Nordsteam-1 pipeline, that would have gone to Germany (and other places in Europe), but with no other place to send it, the Russians are setting it ablaze as it streams out of the pipe in a gigantic conflagration.
In other words, while the Germans are cutting down their forests to get through the winter, the Russians literally have natural gas to burn.
One of my mentors in college while I was earning my Economics degree sagely advised that, whenever you see a market dislocation, look for the withered hand of government.
Environmentalists are fretting that the giant Russian natural gas bonfire will overheat the local environment or something. Like “global warming,” except here it’s “local warming.” I don’t really understand what they’re complaining about, but you get the idea.
But the environmentalists should probably be more concerned about the COLD. Because it’s going to get cold this winter without all that natural gas. Not just around the pipeline in Finland, which is where you can go to get warm. It’s going to get cold in the entire continent. Global cooling.
🔥 More mandates! According to the Daily Mail UK, Sweden is considering misdemeanor jail time for Swedes who set their thermostats too high this winter:
What would we do without mandates? Better yet, why don’t we just let the government make ALL our day-to-day decisions? Then we can just lie down and binge-watch Netflix all day.
Okay, my beloved procrastinating C&Cers. Here’s the multiplier link again, knock it out: https://donorbox.org/christopher-f-rufo.
Have a fabulous Friday! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow for the weekend edition.
C&C is moving the needle and changing minds. If you can, I could use your help getting the truth out and spreading optimism and hope: https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/-learn-how-to-get-involved-
