“Uncle Joe” Macbeth


Jon Reisman

“This is not about freedom or personal choice”- Dictator Joe Biden lies to the nation on vaccine mandates, vaccine and mask efficacy and natural immunity.
“Welcome to North Korea”- one of my Cooper neighbors assessing the Biden dictate.
“F*** Joe Biden”- popular chant at mass gatherings, football games and rare public Biden sitings, soon to be banned by you-tube and the CDC as misinformation deleterious to public health.
I thought (or at least the media told me to think) that Donald Trump was the Hitlerian dictator and that Joe Biden was the empathetic Irish pol who would unite us and return us to “normalcy”. Turns out Biden is more “Uncle Joe” Stalin than lovable codger Uncle Joe from Petticoat Junction (although the swept under the rug allegation that Senator Biden sexually assaulted an aide looks more credible with every angry lying outburst from the head of the Biden crime family, even if “Believe all women” is only rarely applied to Democratic pols).
After blaming Donald Trump and Republican governors for “killing” Americans (look in the Afghanistan mirror Joe), Biden is trying to shame and bully 80 million unvaccinated Americans into submission. Many of those Americans have natural immunity, having recovered from Covid infection. Studies (at least those not yet successfully banned by Big Tech and Dr. Fauci) suggest that natural immunity is stronger and longer lasting than vaccine “immunity”. The public health community, led by Congressional perjurer and Wuhan lab funder Fauci swears that the vaccines are safe and effective, and that everyone should get them, even those with natural immunity. Those who do not believe Biden and the public health “experts” are the American version of the Taliban, although the Biden administration now characterizes the Taliban as “businesslike” and “professional”. As Presidential spokes liar Jen Psaki demonstrates every day, don’t believe your lying eyes.
Like the weird sister witches in Macbeth, Fauci, the public health community and the mainstream media have cackled and sang over a bubbling cauldron of fear and duplicity, serving (and cursing) the political ambitions of Uncle Joe Macbeth and his Democratic banner men:

Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.
O well done! I commend your pains;
And every one shall share i' the gains;
And now about the cauldron sing,
Live elves and fairies in a ring,
Enchanting all that you put in.

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Open, locks,
Whoever knocks!

Who knew that Shakespeare was a big Pharma executive and Democratic operative?
