Happy Thursday, C&C! I hope you’re all having a terrific week. Your roundup today includes: inside the C&C joke machine; Liz Truss breaks bad in Britain with energy policy and limits to jabs for kids; bad news for jabbed kids in the UK data; sudden and unexpected celebrity and athlete deaths and injuries; Steve Kirsch is on a rampage over a new whistleblower report; and a neat music video for you to help promote.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 Believe it or not, I never INTEND to offend anyone with my daily reflections. My wife was mortified the first time I drily blogged that a senior Biden official “an unattractive cross-dresser.” But I was just expressing a funny truth in an admittedly edgy way, to challenge folks to THINK, by (hopefully) combining several ideas on conscious and subconscious levels.
Twenty years ago, men who dressed as women (and vice-versa) WERE cross-dressing, and it was considered pathological. Back in the day, leftists even slandered J. Edgar Hoover by calling him a cross-dresser, and what they meant by that was Hoover was crazy AND a pervert. Nowadays, according to the thought police, you’re not supposed to say “cross-dresser,” which is exactly why I say it. It used to be an accurate term to describe a mental illness, widely used during a much more polite period of history than we’re living through today.
And as a lawyer, to whom the meaning of words is critically important, I refuse to surrender words to anyone.
I think maybe it was the word ‘unattractive’ that horrified Michelle, more so than the label ‘cross-dresser.’ She was probably worried I was calling him fat. But because the word ‘unattractive’ is delightfully ambiguous, the mind is forced to search for meaning in context; and here the mind discovers long-existing levels of social and cultural offense that arise when men impersonate women badly.
I mean, come on, it’s like the guy’s not even TRYING. Just look at him.
Yesterday I noticed that covid czar Ashish Jha was blasphemously invoking religion when he said, “God gave us two arms for two injections.” To be fair, he’s probably more ignorant about religion than malevolent (that guy desperately needs a witness). But he wasn’t well-intentioned; though Jha said it jokily, it was really a clumsy attempt to manipulate Christians into getting even more shots.
Of course Jha completely missed the point of why God created us in the first place (it wasn’t for shots). I honestly hope that he finds the Truth and is saved. But right now he’s practically sprinting toward the hot place.
Anyway, to highlight what Jha was up to, I emphasized the bumbling, manipulative, and sacrilegious nature of Jha’s dumb remark by mixing his secular religion — Branch Covidianism — with his clumsy misunderstanding of true religion, in a way that would be accessible to secular people as well as people of faith, by describing a made-up sacred object, a covid rosary. That edgy image seemed to prompt the brain to consider all the different ways what Jha said was wrong.
Since protestants (like me) work hard NOT to attach religious meaning to manmade stuff, we can sometimes forget that our Catholics brothers and sisters genuinely hold some special items to be sacred, requiring careful handling. A few devout Catholics in the C&C family, who take great comfort and hold sacred significance in their rosaries, were appalled by the Jha joke and they let me know about it, and no mistake. Someone even called the office.
I hope this partial explanation of how I come up with some jokes — always in a hurry, always on an insanely-tight publication deadline — helps folks understand that I was not intentionally careless or irreligious. Just the opposite. In fact, that was the exact point I meant to illustrate about Jha, that his remark was careless and irreligious. I think some folks got it, but for a few people, the rosary’s special status prevented the humor from landing the way it was intended.
One of our terrific commenters found a better joke anyway. If the right arm is for the flu shot, and the left arm is for the covid shot, in what member will Jha take his monkeypox shot? Just asking!
PS — No need to defend C&C in the comments. It’s all good.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🔥 In spite of gloomy predictions by conservatives that she’d just be another useless WEF stooge, it seems to me that UK’s new prime minister Liz Truss, who just recently replaced disgraced covid party-PM Boris Johnson, is off to a pretty good start.
First, the Telegraph UK ran a story yesterday headlined, “Liz Truss Vows ‘Never Again’ on Exorbitant Energy Bills.” The sub-head attempts to explain, “Prime Minister pledges to ‘revolutionise’ supply as she takes action to ease household fuel crisis.”
The actual news is that starting TODAY (how’s that for fast? she was just elected Monday) Liz plans to lift Boris’ fracking moratorium, allowing Britain to take advantage of the cheapest, fastest, most successful technology for producing domestic oil. Observers also predict the new government will promptly delete carbon taxes from Brits’ energy bills.
The Telegraph also predicted the new Prime Minister will immediately move to support more oil and gas drilling in the North Sea, and will prune regulations to speed up the approval process.
You may recall that President Trump flipped the U.S. into energy independence for the first time in history in just two years using a similar strategy. Trump taught the world how to do it, and it looks like Liz is now pursuing a Trumpian energy policy.
On the other hand, Biden CANCELED fracking. And look where we are now.
That’s pretty good for her first few days in office. But that’s not all!
💉 Although corporate media has embargoed the story — for some reason — UK government health agencies quietly updated their jab guidance to essentially prohibit covid vaccines for healthy kids under eleven. Under the newly-released rules, after the current program ends this year, any child who was five years old as of August should not be eligible get the vaccine until they are at least eleven. From the official UK “Green Book,” in bureaucrat-ese:
Subject to further clarification, on-going eligibility in 2022/23, after the one off-programme, is expected to be for children in the academic years where children are aged 11 or 12 years.
For kids eleven and over, although the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is currently advising that covid vaccines should be OFFERED to 5–11-year-old children in the UK, it deems the injections to be “NON-ESSENTIAL.” In other words, it does not advise the jabs for them.
So, that’s TWO pretty good moves for a new Prime Minister. British C&C’ers, what do you think?
💉 The UK jab policy change may have something to do with the latest report from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) in Britain, which issued shortly before Boris Johnson resigned.
Exposé News charted the report’s horrifying data on outcomes in children. Put simply: vaccinated kids in Britain are astronomically more likely to die from covid or from any cause than unvaccinated kids. WAY more likely.
This is just one of the Exposé’s charts. Here’s the link. (https://expose-news.com/2022/07/27/uk-gov-vaccinated-children-increased-mortality/)
Wouldn’t it be great if the CDC collected this kind of information for the U.S.? Oh well. I guess they need a bigger budget or something. Or maybe the CDC is useless.
💉 Youthful Aylesford Soccer Club ‘superstar’ Danielle Cubitt died suddenly and unexpectedly on August 30th. The club’s matches on September 4th were postponed, and it announced, “This has naturally affected our players deeply.”
💉 Huddersfield Town Soccer Club is mourning the loss of its communications team member Eleanor Haigh, 26, who died suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday, September 2nd. No cause of death released.
💉 “Superfit” Scottish doctor Mike Wilson, 46, died suddenly and unexpectedly on August 18th while he was training for a triathlon in Lochindorb in Grantown-on-Spey, and he experienced a massive heart attack. For some reason. Maybe he was too joyful.
💉 TV star Pauley Perrette, 53, who played the beloved character Abby Sciuto on NCIS, revealed last week that she’d suffered a sudden and unexpected “massive stroke” a year ago. And that’s not all:

💉 Teenager Kaden Clymer, a promising Wauseon, Ohio junior lineman, cannot play football any more. He had SIX FEET of blood clots removed from his legs just days before the current season kicked off.
The night before the Wauseon Indians took the field for their first Fall team practice, Kaden suddenly and unexpectedly had to be ambulanced to Toledo Children’s Hospital after feeling sick. Kaden’s mother Maurine Clymer explained that the problem started on August 1st. “His dad took him to the emergency room after he was having severe pain in his back and legs. His calves were swelled up four inches larger in circumference.”
Kaden spent nine days in the hospital. Now, because of the blood thinners he has to take in his stomach twice a day, every day, Clymer’s football career is over.
Doctors have been unable to figure out what caused Kaden’s illness. They’re completely baffled.
💉 Philanthropist anti-vaxxer Steve Kirsch is on a rampage. His September 2nd Substack is all about a story he called the most important thing he’d ever written, and that should be front-page news, at least in Israel if not globally, about an Israeli whistleblower who reported definitive proof of jab injury causation, a report that was buried under a pile of lies by the Israeli Ministry of Health.
Briefly, after being widely criticized for failing to track vaccine injuries at all, the Israeli government hired a third party research group in December of last year. Their job was to analyze the insurance data from one of Israel’s large HMOs, which covers about 15% of Israelis.
In June, the researchers presented their findings in a zoom meeting to senior officials with Israel’s Ministry of Health. The results were so worrisome that they even suggested that the government consider the legal liability ramifications. There were three main categories in the report.
First, the researchers said they found “new signals,” which are side effects not currently associated with the jabs, including neurological side effects such as hypoesthesia, paresthesia, tinnitus, and dizziness; back pain; and digestive system symptoms in children (abdominal pain).
Second, they found long-term effects that contradicted the prevailing notion that most adverse events happen right after taking the shot. They discovered side effects that were chronic or long-lasting, including menstrual irregularities, various neurological side effects, musculo-skeletal injuries, GI problems, and kidney and urinary system problems.
Third, and most importantly, the researchers discovered many cases of “re-challenge,” which is the recurrence or worsening of a side effect following repeated doses of the vaccines. In fact, they identified cases of re-challenge in all the 5 most common side effects they analyzed.
We’ve heard over and over that “correlation does not equal causation.” But in the private briefing, the researchers stressed that, according to established literature, their ‘rechallenge’ findings PROVE a causal relationship between the vaccine and the adverse effects.
The Ministry of Health slow-walked the response. It took two months to get around to publishing a public report on the group’s findings. The public report completely rewrote what the researchers actually found, it was a complete whitewash, and it falsely told the Israeli public that the research project had proved that adverse events were rare, short-lived, and the jabs were safe and effective.
In other words, the exact opposite of what the researchers told them.
A big fat lie.
What the Ministry of Health didn’t know was that an unidentified whistleblower secretly recorded the zoom call, and after the false public report was issued, the whistleblower sent the recorded zoom meeting to a few people, including Israeli journalist Yaffa Shir-Raz, who broke the story. Yaffa was fired from Israel’s biggest newspaper last year after she tweeted critical things about the jabs.

Now, Steve Kirsch is trying to get the story out, broadband. He’s forwarded it to virtually everyone in his address book: politicians, doctors, and scientists. In his Substack he said he’s forwarded it to dozens of CDC researchers. Here’s a partial list of who he sent it to:
- Marc Tessier-Lavigne, President of Stanford
- Stanford Dean of Medicine Lloyd Minor
- Stanford Professor David Relman
- Stanford Professor Grace Lee (who is also head of the ACIP committee)
- Stanford Professor Bonnie Maldonado
- UCSF Dean of Medicine Bob Wachter
- UCSF Professor Vinay Prasad
- Emory Dean of Medicine Vikas Sukhatme
- Emory Professor Carlos del Rio
- John Hopkins Professor Bert Vogelstein (the most cited scientist in history)
- CNN Medical Expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta
He asked all of them to respond. So far, nothing. I know, you’re shocked.
