Even if Joe doesn't wind up running, both parties could learn a lot from what makes him successful.
yeah, I don't think the parties are planning to learn anything from anybody
Malone has 1600 doctors supporting him per is Substack blog.
And what are the other possible side effects from the Covid shot (I can not call it a vaccine).
About a week ago, I shared that idea (Rogan 2024) with my wife. I think you're on to something.
Rogan doesn't seek political power. This post reminds me of the Warren Buffett rant some time ago. Be your own Joe Fucking Rogan.
To paraphrase Churchill ... "Americans will always pick the right candidate - after exhausting all the alternatives.". Great essay; your point about the parties learning the lesson in picking (or being compelled to accept) their candidates in the future, especially at the national level, is well made.
I have felt that finding a true middle candidate and then a right-left constituency is key to rescuing the Republic. However, unless there is also enough support in Congress featuring a clear working majority in both Houses, nothing will be done. Unless and until a new Administration can wipe out most of the Deep State it's all Reality TV Presidency in a Reality TV Republic, aka Kabuki.
Let's say Rogan run and won. What could he do? Very little I suspect. Because unless and until most of the Deep State is dismantled nothing will change. For example:
End the Fed and the credit cartel that runs it.
Close down Washington DC and have capital move every 100 years. Go to Kansas City or some such.
End FBI-CIA-gut the DOJ. Abolish most unnecessary Federal Departments like Education, COC and many more.
Close down most of the 1000 foreign military basis. Repurpose military to defense.
Mount a new Party not beholden to either D's or R's.
Push for a Second Republic with a new, repurposed Constitution with all the good basic stuff in but most of the Amendments eliminated.
Put limits on size of Federal Govt, income tax etc. It should end up about 1/10th of its current size. State govts can get larger but not too much so. Municipal governments should be improved and they should get a bigger slice of the national tax pie. Most taxes should come from within the States not via income tax.
Of course illegal immigration should stop, the wall be finished, and immigration slowed for a while until the country stabilizes again.
Re-invigorate manufacturing and rebuild infrastructure. Put Trump in charge of that for 4 years. He was born for it.
There is so much that could be done.
But probably none of it will. Rogan or no Rogan.
But this idea of finding the middle joining people of good will on left and right is absolutely the single most important thing to shoot for before mid-terms and 2024 Presidential (although personally I think federal elections are mainly theater at this point and have no confidence that they can be restored to being anywhere close to honestly conducted.)
Rogan is a great commentator but I don’t see him as ready to lead and our country can’t afford to have someone to learn on the job.
I will say that one of Rogan’s strengths is that overall he is not wedded to ideology and he seems to be an authentic American who cares about America. I cannot say the same for the majority of our leaders. And that is the main reason our country’s problems appear to be unsolvable.
I read Dave Collum’s Year in Review and the scariest thing of all is the Soviet style centralization of medicine since Covid began. Even that Dana White clip points to that fact. Who’s behind the suppression of monoclonal antibodies? Once the “word got out” the availability becomes nill? Shenanigans
So they got Joe Rogan to concede on a point using statistics to lie -- got it! I mean, good on Joe for being agreeable and willing to admit an error seeing as he believed that he made one. That is something that, I wouldn't hold my breath for mainstream media or any political parties to do any time soon.
But back to the Rogan and myocarditis thing. They're saying "...children 12-17 more likely to develop myocarditis... at a rate of 450 cases per million infections" versus "...67 cases... per million from the vaccine."
The thing that those statistics are avoiding and is clearly a misdirection in my opinion is that children have very robust immune systems and are rarely becoming infected with covid in the first place. Meanwhile, they intend for 100% of children to become vaccinated.
I don’t claim to understand the politics and the driving forces behind the incessant decrees, but at this point, it seems to be increasingly obvious even to those who instinctively adhere to the rules, that it’s not about public health, and certainly not about the individual’s health.
The more the rules decouple from reality, the more people are beginning to question. The more stress and anxiety people feel from the situation, the more likely they are to begin openly questioning the source of their stress.
You never know which courageous voice will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, so stay strong, speak up when you can, share information, and don’t ever accept this as a status quo, or there will be no end in sight.
Kleptocracy won’t allow it. Ever.
Steve Kirsch put together a debate challenging anything Dr Malone said in his Rogan interview. He had zero takers from the Vax side!!
Michelle Obama is the most likely Dem contender for President in 2024. And is likely crushed by DeSantis for the win.
Reminds me of when the plebs wasn’t allowed to read the Bible which in any case was written in Latin.
This is a great essay. I agree completely with Rogan being a great template, regardless of the man himself, and simply challenging the narrative is going to be a strong motivator for any "alternative" candidate to pick up as a platform. Which for me personally breeds a lot of optimism about our trajectory.
The whole "Are you a doctor?" line is gonna get old real fast, but until they come up with an "official" definition for the new jargon, a snarky and legit response might be: "No, I'm just a science communicator". I'm pretty sure we can all claim that label as long as we are all forced to keep talking about this shit.
