Don's Tuesday Column

             THE WAY I SEE IT   by Don Polson  Bluff Daily News   12/06/2022

Misled, deprived, told to like it

Last week’s column had already been sent when the sad news of Editor Chip Thompson’s passing arrived. Having little personal interaction with Chip, it behooved this columnist to take the measure of the man vicariously through the eyes and experiences of others.

What dawned on me was how Chip fit a pattern I’ve observed, and respected, for much of my 50+ adult years, even in high school: Someone who thrived in interacting, networking, expanding others’ potential, and thereby becoming, without actually aspiring to it, a bigger person whose influence was magnified by other impactful people.

As seen through those sharing on this page, a magnanimous, warm- and good-hearted person seamlessly becomes a beneficial part of those around him: local organizations, businesses, and charities. I have not only admired such qualities in others, but have also felt a shortcoming when realizing that I could only aspire to such muted greatness, never quite achieving it.

Like the proverbial blind men touching different parts of an elephant but unable to grasp the whole, the testimonies to a truly good man should inspire us all to be more than we have been. I extend my deepest condolences to the Daily News family, who I know have felt a loss perhaps larger than Chip’s actual family, if only because his presence, support and guidance was a nearly 24/7 part of their lives. Carry on and be better for it.

“Election denial”—the all-purpose epithet used to mindlessly condemn any Trump-supporting Republican—is now exposed for the hypocrisy it always was, with the rise of Congressman Hakeem Jeffries to party leadership. After banshee-like shrieking leveled at anyone 1) doubting that elections of Democrats are free of fraud and cheating, or 2) questioning White House occupant Joe Biden’s legitimacy—Mr. Jeffries’ record of repeatedly denying the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s election in 2016 exposes their ludicrous double standard. Call it “herd immunity” to election denial; the Dem-friendly media just play along.

In “The Evil of Coerced Medicine,” Aaron Kheriaty draws on his book, “The New Abnormal: The Rise of the Biomedical Security State,” to expose the twin tools of medical despotism: propaganda and coercion. It’s worth searching the free read of his article. We’ve been misled in a manner bordering on the abominable, while many have been deprived of economic, financial value; educational rights and advancement; familial affection and nearness to elderly loved ones; and, not least, the unabridged right to gainful employment, even service to our country in law enforcement and the military.

Specific, even unquantifiable, losses have been imposed upon an otherwise Constitutionally free people. “Vaccinated people make up the majority of COVID-19 deaths: CDC data,” by Marina Zhang; “Autopsies show COVID-19 vaccination likely caused fatal heart inflammation: study,” by Zachary Stieber. Informative reading.

Fauci’s replacement, Dr. Ashish Jha, has already duplicitously assured us that we could eliminate all COVID deaths if everyone gets “boosters,” while later admitting that even the newest vaccine efficacy declines by 30 to 50 percent after a few months, depending on one’s age.

Speaking of “Doctor” (treats no patients) Fauci, his current defense is “I’m a bureaucrat, not a scientist” (John Hinderaker), given Fauci’s deposition in the First Amendment lawsuit filed by Louisiana and Missouri Attorneys General. Louisiana’s AG Jeff Landry tweeted: “Wow! It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci. The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon ‘the science.’ Only to discover that he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!”

The health bureaucrat who serially mislead America for years said, under oath, that his responsibilities running a “$6 billion agency” didn’t allow him to pay attention to the Great Barrington Declaration. Signed by thousands of physicians and scientists, it cited established protocols implemented in numerous countries to provide targeted protection for vulnerable elderly populations while allowing normalcy elsewhere. No lockdowns.

While health “authorities” continue trying to sell Americans on endless “booster” shots, refusing to admit the “emergency” is over, we must not “forgive and forget” their culpability: “There can be no ‘amnesty’ on lockdowns without a reckoning,” by Joy Pullman. We’re old with health issues and got the first rollout and booster for their initial protection against a threatening virus; lethality has declined, so we’ll rely on our own immunity and natural supplements as we always have. Make up your own minds.

Space isn’t wasted to describe it as naive for Donald Trump to share dinner with Mr. West (now “Ye”?). It was a setup given that he knew nothing of the kook antisemite white supremacist that tagged along. Trump’s instincts and staff failed him in not keeping such nuts away. Though well read, I never heard of Mr. Fuentes.

Arguably, the crucible and cauldron of white hot political/governmental fire that has failed to destroy him, have perhaps made Donald Trump uniquely suited to deliver America from the sliding-to-fascism progressive takeover of our federal agencies, DOJ and national security “fourth branch of government.”

Republican wannabes, make your cases for leading that struggle because, absent that fight, we’re doomed. If baseless, fabricated campaigns of vitriol, persecution, and illegal prosecution aimed at removing legitimately elected Donald Trump, and now preventing Americans from even being able to vote for him in 2024—if that’s not the definition of seditious conspiracy, nothing is.

Next, we’ll dig into the bombshell revelations documented by Elon Musk and journalist Matt Taibbi: A government-political party-Big Tech nexus colluded in 2020 to suppress information deleterious to Joe Biden’s campaign. Previously cited polling proved that, had voters been informed of evidence of Biden family corruption and influence-peddling, he’d have lost. That’s stealing an election.
