    Biden Tells CNN He’s Down for a 100-Day Mask Mandate

    Starting a term with a federal mandate seems about par for the course for the statist camp.
    Listen to this article

    Talking to CNN’s Jake Tapper, Biden indicated he’d have us all in masks for 100 days.

    As if we haven’t all been masked up since March?

    From CNN:

    President-elect Joe Biden told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday that he will ask Americans to wear masks for his first 100 days after he takes office, in a sign of how Biden’s approach to the virus will be dramatically different to President Donald Trump’s response.

    “Just 100 days to mask, not forever. 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction,” Biden told Tapper during his first joint interview with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris since winning the election. The full interview will air at 9 p.m. ET.

    Biden said that where he has authority, like in federal buildings or in interstate transportation on airplanes and buses, he will issue a standing order that masks must be worn. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that wearing a mask can help protect the both the person wearing the mask and those around them from transmitting the virus.

    Biden also said he has asked Dr. Anthony Fauci to be a chief medical adviser and part of his Covid-19 response team when his administration begins next year.
    Biden said the conversation happened on Thursday afternoon. CNN reported earlier in the day that Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force, had a planned meeting with Biden’s transition team.
    Starting a term with a federal mandate seems about par for the course for the statist camp.

    It pays to increase your word power. Today’s word is “gundecking.” Gundecking is when someone falsifies a maintenance procedure. It started out as a strictly naval term but I hear it’s used more widely. And if any of you were ever in the service you know falsifying a maintenance procedure involves creating a fake paper trail (or, obviously, the computer equivalent which is a lot harder).

    Pro tip. If you’re going to create a fake paper trail and the leading petty officer whose signature is on the chit died three days earlier while on leave in Istanbul because he and his girl friend were using a charcoal grill to heat the apartment we’re going to notice (every time I think I have a good imagination reality tells me to “hold my beer”).

    That’s one kind of fraud. The Navy loses a jet and inevitably the investigation reveals things like people taking short cuts, then trying to later make it look like they didn’t.

    Another kind of fraud involves people sharing credentials to access secure information. I unfortunately had the distasteful duty of exposing some of my foreign national counterparts who had been granted access to U.S. national security information, and then shared it with their people who we hadn’t granted access. I’m being vague, perhaps misleading, and probably doing a piss poor job of throwing anyone off the trail. I’m doing this to protect the guilty. Who were good people but they played fast and loose with our trust.

    I’m trying manfully to avoid going off on the multiple tangents that constantly present themselves. Hillary Clinton? Who wasn’t good people. I ruined friends career (I tell myself he ruined his own career because all he had to do was play by the rules which are not mere rules but laws at least for U.S. persons) for less.

    At this point you may be forgiven for wondering, “Is there a point?” Yes. I’ve been peripherally involved in fraud investigations More importantly, when I was dragged into these investigations I worked with professional fraud investigators.

    I could be written off as a rank partisan. And I’m sure I will be. But based on the few fraud investigations I’ve been a part of, and based on my contacts who were professional fraud investigators there is no way in Hell Joe Biden won this election.

    There are like two dozen red flags. Your credit card company would put a hold on your card for any three of them. I don’t know of any fraud investigation that had even five of these red flags that popped up, and didn’t lead to fraud.

    And we have more than twenty.

    I an sure I’m not using the word fraud in a strict legal sense. I’m using it loosely to mean lying or misrepresenting a fact to gain an advantage.
