Well, dear aggravated leftier-than-thou reader, there is no reporting at C&L, just web-logging. Y'know, mostly reacting to idiotic stuff said by right-wingers on the telly & in other media. Almost exactly like RawStory, really.Compared to RawStory and the right wing rag HuffPost, you report or barely report almost nothing that can be considered news, may I ask why? If you are reporters (hahahaha) yet report no real news oh a few slivers here and there but nothing concrete or rousing just enough dribble hoping that no one knows. I guess you do take orders from the right so that they are not really offended.

Gone 'Round The Bend, I Say
The best part, of course, is that Bow-Tie Daddy no doubt imagines himself to be the epitome of a free-thinking (yet Xian), high-testosterone dude. Sad, innit?Fox News host Tucker Carlson continued his relentless anti-vaccine crusade on Monday by bizarrely claiming that the military’s new vaccination mandate was an effort by the Biden administration to weed out Christians and “men with high testosterone.”
Following the Food and Drug Administration’s full approval of Pfizer’s coronavirus shot last month, the Pentagon ordered all active-duty military members to be fully vaccinated. According to Carlson, though, the vaccine requirement was a “new political purity test” by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
“This was specifically designed to separate the obedient from the free,” the Fox host grumbled on Monday night. “Can’t have any of the latter category.”
Carlson, who has repeatedly sowed doubt about COVID-19 vaccines’ efficacy and safety, went on to say there was “zero scientific basis” behind requiring soldiers to be vaccinated against the virus that’s killed nearly 700,000 Americans. Never mind that service members have long been subjected to various immunizations, and a surge in the virus could negatively impact troop readiness.
Insisting that “virtually all” of the military is “at extremely low risk of dying from COVID” because they’re mostly young and healthy, the conservative primetime host went on to compare military suicides to coronavirus deaths.
Having thoroughly dismissed COVID-19 as a concern for the military, Carlson alleged that the vaccine mandate was actually a conspiracy to purge the military of virile, God-fearing men with minds of their own.
“The point of mandatory vaccination is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the free thinkers, the men with high testosterone levels, and anyone else who doesn't love Joe Biden and make them leave immediately,” he exclaimed. “It's a takeover of the U.S. military!”
Carlson then claimed he obtained a U.S. Army PowerPoint presentation that was meant to address service member concerns about vaccines, including a slide that sarcastically read: “How many children were sacrificed to Satan because of the vaccine?”
“Then the presentation proceeds to list the so-called tenets of Satanism which are taken from the Temple of Satanism website. So here you have the United States Army doing p.r. for Satanists,” Carlson fumed, framing the slide as proof the military was rooting out Christians.

Maybe BoJo should get the wax out of his ears. Maybe this was essentially an excuse to bring out this moldy piece of cheese, which certainly doesn't sound any better (even remastered) almost 53 yrs. after it was recorded. Effin' Limeys.“Boris Johnson told reporters on his way to the U.N. General Assembly on Sunday night he didn’t believe it was likely that the U.S. would agree to lift its ban on vaccinated foreign travelers this week. Hours later, the White House did exactly that,” Axios reports.
“For the second time in less than a week, a major U.S. foreign policy decision by the Biden administration appears to have caught one of its closest allies by surprise. And neither was the first time, either.”

The associate alleged that at the meeting—which was also attended by Thiel, former President Trump, Jared Kushner, and their spouses—Zuckerberg essentially promised to champion “state-sanctioned conservatism,” The Contrarian: Peter Thiel and Silicon Valley’s Pursuit of Power says. Zuckerberg denied the existence of a deal, saying that was “pretty ridiculous.”

More guns for the mentally ill who are too stupid to turn off their 'phones while committing murder, right?
Police in West Texas this week arrested Joseph Angel Alvarez, 38, who allegedly targeted a couple - killing the wife in the process - because they voted for Biden, and had a Biden flag and “a doll of Trump hanging” outside their home.
Alvarez, arrested September 8 nearly a year after the murder, is being held at the El Paso County Detention Center. He was jailed on a $2 million bond for the murder of Georgette Kaufmann, 50, and on a $500,000 bond for the aggravated assault of the woman’s husband, Daniel Kaufmann.
The couple was targeted on November 14, 2020, shortly after the U.S. presidential election, at their home in the 3000 block of Copper Avenue in Central El Paso.
A criminal complaint states police found Georgette Kauffman’s body inside her garage. After Alvarez shot and killed the woman, he allegedly made his way through the detached garage door and entered the backyard.
The court document obtained by KDBC-TV in El Paso states Alvarez walked up a flight of stairs to an outdoor patio deck. He attempted to enter the residence, but found the wrought iron door to be locked.
At that time, Daniel Kauffman heard a noise at the back door and walked in its direction because he believed it was his wife. Alvarez then allegedly fired several rounds through the closed wrought iron door, striking the husband, the court document states.
Kauffman told KDBC he was shot at five times, but was able to crawl out of his home and reach a neighbor’s house to ask for help.
Investigators obtained a Google geofence search warrant to examine all mobile devices within a particular geofence area of the victim’s home. The search warrant data provided by Google allegedly revealed Alvarez was present in the area on two occasions. Once on Nov. 10, 2020, and the other on the day of the murder.
During the investigation, investigators uncovered emails allegedly sent by Alvarez in which he stated his extremist religious beliefs and identified “pro-choice” advocates as the “Jewish Satanist Party” and claimed abortions were “Jewish child sacrifice.”
He identified Memorial Park, near the murdered woman’s home, as a “ritualistic satanic ground to conduct abortions by the manner of magic.”
An email allegedly sent by Alvarez to the 902D Military Intelligence group included photographs near the crime scene and the driveway that led to the Kauffmann’s residence. The photographs are suspected to have been taken in the area according to his geo-location history on Nov. 10, the criminal complaint states.
Furthermore, the email Alvarez allegedly wrote claims he targeted the Kaufmann’s home near Memorial Park because they voted for Biden and had a Biden “flag and a doll of Trump hanging.”

All [sic], by the way. Sad, innit?Today, with little near-term threat of a foreign war, there has never been a greater need for a war here at home. Americans were threatened by foreign powers in 1775 and 1941, and by the vicious domestic war of 1861-65. Each time, Americans responded by reducing their enmies to the dust of oblivion. Indeed, the defeat inflicted on the Confederacy in war and especially during reconstruction was far more savage than that suffered by the British, the Japanese, and Germans. Since the end of reconstruction, in fact, the Democrats have never stopped trying to destroy the southern states, and especially the traditional culture of those states, which is thoroughly informed by conservatism, patriotism, tradition, and Christianity, and which today exists as the most humane and admirable regional culture in North America
Currently, average Americans are faced by an immediate and quite desperate need to reduce a domestic enemy to the same kind of dust. The Democratic Party, its black and white terrorists forces and legions of sexually depraved; many of the U.S. military’s flag officers and their highly ranked butt-boy underlings; most of the federal bureaucracy; any person employed by or associated with the United Nations; the media; all teachers/professors; Hollywood; pedophiles; the leaders and their staffs of major league sports; the leaders and their lieutenants of giant companies in the banking, medicine, pharmaceuticals, arms, technology, and social-media sectors; most Jewish-American leaders, journalists, and organizations, and their unending hatred for the American republic; and all Christian clerics who have abandoned their God, Bible, and flocks to side with the foregoing entities, can only be classified as the lethal enemies of Americans and their republic. They must be stopped and then scoured from the continent.
So here we are on the cusp of an absolutely necessary domestic war. We must be polite at all times, and in that the Democrats and their above-named allies started this war long ago, the favor must be returned. What is the offense that is causing the war that is now near to hand? Here, readers would expect a litany of crimes committed by our governments, along the lines of Jefferson’s indictment of George III and his Parliament in the Declaration. Of that kind of irrefutable evidence there is an overwhelming abundance, the most recent being a mother whose child was forcibly removed from her because she refused to be poisoned by the national government, the video of a U.S. soldier who expressed her eagerness for martial law and her willingness to shoot down Americans who defied her orders, Japan’s discovery of nearly 2 million doses of deliberately tainted vaccine, and new and definitive data showing the continuing and strengthening suppression of proven cures for the Wuhan Flu. Such a list, however, would be endless, and most items on it are already known by many Americans, and soon will be known by most.[...]
... American patriots are clearly the exact opposite of those described by Ferguson as “degenerate and cowardly”, while those words are the precise description of all who follow Biden, his party and regime, globalists, and the pride-filled sexually depraved in their war-by-mandate on loyal Americans and their kids. The cause of American patriots against them is the cause of the Founders, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, the English language, the rule of law, equality before the law, Christianity, and eight-plus centuries of English liberties, which now are being destroyed by mandate in Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia, and will die by the same instrument in America if the mandaters are not wiped out.
It is a cause whose victory can be won only by the hands of armed men who are, as Ferguson wrote, “spirited and resolute” and who know that participating in a war waged to rid the republic of its lawless, vermin-like, and genocidal enemies is truly to participate in doing God’s work, and that such work – win or lose, live or die — is its own reward.
And what, after all, could be more satisfying, necessary, respectable, and blessed than to help kill, in numbers as large as necessary, those who are using illegal and so legally meaningless “mandates” to impoverish, poison, starve, and ultimately kill you and your family; to sexually pervert your grammar-skilled kids and teach them to be Nazis; and to make the Chinese and other Third World trash the rulers of America. Clearly, the only real challenge here lies is picking which target to dispose of first
