Once upon a time, our authorities knew how to handle public health. Mary Mallon, a.k.a. Typhoid Mary, was quarantined twice including the last 23 years of her life. She died in 1938 at the age of 69. She was reputedly a strong woman who put up a heck of a fight when she was finally arrested by police and health department officials after a long search.
Black Plague Looms For Los Angeles — Dr. Drew Pinsky on last night’s (May 30) Ingraham Angle reported that Los Angeles is experiencing medieval diseases such as typhus, typhoid fever, and, notably, the bubonic plague, which killed half of Europe in the 14th century.
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles,” Pinsky said.
He said airborne disease like tuberculous is exploding.
He said that rat-borne disease is unchecked as L.A. is one of the country’s few major cities that doesn’t have a rodent control program.
There will be a typhus outbreak this summer, he said, and worse.
“I’m hearing from experts that bubonic plague is likely. It’s already here,” he said.
And of course, there is the disease spread by fecal filth in the street like typhoid fever.
“This is not Third World,” he said. “This is medieval. Third World countries would be insulted if they were accused of being like this,
Welcome to the Golden State. Guess that’s what happens in “sanctuary states” that consider unrestricted abortion to be the primary health objective.
Pinsky noted that L.A. is sub-optimally immunized.
“God forbid if measles gets in,” he said.
Questions for all the progressives sneering at the anti-vaxxers: Do unvaccinated illegal immigrants — who exponentially outnumber anti-vaxxers — cause any concern for you?
For laughs, the Los Angeles Times is blaming “climate change” for the looming plague outbreak. Do people really still believe the garbage the establishment media is feeding them?
Stan Casacio Peace Offering — Just heard from the great and influential Stan Casacio, who is seeking to bring peace and unity to Montco after a bitter primary battle for county commissioner.
Stan says he would like to reach out to incumbent Joe Gale who remains angry at the county GOP for dirty deeds done nine days ago.
Gale, as per election-night tallies, was the top Republican vote-getter for the two seats on the Nov. 5 ballot. He ran as a ticket, however, with his brother Sean who finished third behind Fred Conner.
The county GOP claimed it would not make an endorsement but a “green ballot” with a strong resemblance to the official one was distributed at polling places with only Conner’s name. The ballot had been paid for by paid by “Citizens for Conner.”
The Gales think that’s what led to Conner’s victory over Sean.
Stan, who had nothing to do with the ballot and holds no official position with the county party other than committeeman, notes that politics are dirty.
“Jeff (Salvino) is upset because he didn’t think of it first,” Stan says regarding the Gales’ hard-nosed campaign manager.
The three-person board now controlled by Democrats Valerie A. Arkoosh and Kenneth E. Lawrence Jr. is mandated to have one member be of the minority party.
It is a fear that Gale and Conner factions will “bullet-vote” rather than work as a team and go for all the marbles.
“A certain part of the deal has to be trust,” says Stan.
Stan is running for county controller with the party endorsement.
Stan, like Joe, is a proven corruption fighter. Stan took on the Republican establishment at much aggravation and cost to himself when it wasn’t cool to do so. He was instrumental in starting Joe’s campaign four years ago.
Stan says he will back Joe for board chairman and even further, which will become a very real possibility as Joe will get much of the credit if the GOP flips the county.
The Democrat incumbents are beatable. Stan says rank and file members of that party are telling him they are very unhappy with Arkoosh and will not be voting for her, while Lawrence is being dogged by allegations of having committed rape. Yes, we believe Pauline.
Gutless Mueller Ignores Real Scandal — In a disgraceful, gutless final act Robert Mueller at his farewell appearance before the press implied he didn’t recommend that President Trump be charged with obstruction of justice only because he was the president.
Really? You couldn’t find any evidence that he colluded with the Russians but implied he still could have committed the lame process crime of obstruction?
You are either so clueless that you can’t conceive of the division in the country that you are unwilling to heal or so craven you figure getting back in the good social graces of the D.C. establishment is more important.
