HEALTH: The covid test maybe available thru regular channels

Tue, Apr 28, 9:44 PM (2 days ago)

>Why get tested if no symptoms ? 

Curiosity. Knowing.

# – # – # – # – #

Labcorp sent a notice that they were offering the test for $100.

“Everyone” was ridiculing me for thinking about get it done.

With all the “information” floating around about the WuFlu:

  • The death count is either inflated (by hospitals to get Federal money) or undercounted (by ignoring deaths in nursing homes).
  • No one seems to understand it. (For example, how can the Roosevelt aircraft carrier (Link) have only a fraction of the crew infected if it’s so contagious?)
  • There seems to be some “interesting” (uneven) stratification in the impact.  Seems to impact the old and sick.  Seems to impact minorities disparately.  Seems to be spread by people that don’t have symptoms.
  • The politicians and bureaucrats have confused the issue with a delayed response and an over-reaction.
  • The “celebrities” are elbowing into the spotlight to improve their visibility and spouting uninformed opinions.
  • Some experts are opining outside their areas of expertise.  Stepping into “policy” from “findings” or “recommendations”.
  • No one seems to know who’s immune and why?
  • Seem to be two groups of doctors that seem to have conflicting diametrically opposed opinions about what the issues are?

So, if there is some sort of “immunity”, perhaps it is signaled by the antibodies in the testing.  

It might be nice to know if I have the antibodies which would indicate:

  1. I had a the mild version that people get with no symptoms;
  2. I will know I have immunity when and if the experts find that “immunity” is denoted by the antibodies;
  3. I will know by the absence of those antibodies would be a warning that I might still be at risk.

QED thinking about getting the test isn’t crazy.

Stimulate the LP | Libertarian Party

In the middle of a global pandemic and a nearly complete economic halt, our elected officials could not comprehend the obvious idea of giving taxpayers their money back to help them keep their bills paid without adding in more than a trillion dollars of corporate bailouts and pork-barrel spending. When we actually break down the […]

Government leaders who believe you and I could not survive without them think the only way to solve a problem is to throw tax dollars at it. We do have very real, deep problems in this country that need to be addressed — health insurance costs, ever-increasing student debt, the opioid crisis, veteran homelessness and suicide — and these problems vary from community to community. Not every American is living with the same issues, and what works in one state may not have the same effect on a different population.

POLITICAL: Did NY Democrats just tank Biden’s nomination?

From the Catholic perspective, Cuomo represents another pro-choice Catholic politician who has tangled with bishops, not unlike Biden. If New York’s governor ends up with the nomination, it would put a spotlight back on the Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who has faced calls in the past to formally sanction Cuomo for his aggressively pro-abortion action in the governor’s mansion. But whether Biden secures the nomination, or Cuomo becomes a convention spoiler, bishops this autumn will face the challenge of a candidate who flaunts his Catholicism while flouting Catholic teaching on abortion.

The “mainstream media” is ignoring Biden’s dementia, sexual harassment allegation, and his lifetime lack of achievement.  Never mind the Ukraine and other scandals.

I don’t understand how anyone can support him?

And the “Catholic” bishops kowtowing  to the CINO politicians make me wonder if the FIX is in (i.e., the politicians get a pass so does the Church for the pedophilia scandal)?

TECHNOLOGY: Blur’s “Masked Cards”

What are Masked Cards?

Masked Cards are unique, disposable, private credit cards created in the amount you specify. They are real MasterCards that function like a pre-paid gift card that you create on the fly as you shop. Use Masked Cards whenever you’re uncomfortable giving out your real card information.

Source: Blur

# – # – # – # – #

​I’m trialing this as a way to keep autorenewals from autorenewing.  For a 100+$ per year, it MIGHT be an effective solution.
So for stuff I am keeping forever, I’ll just give them my permanent card.  For stuff that I am not (i.e., websites; domain names; software subscriptions), I’ll use a masked card.  Since there is a small handling charge due to card processing fees, I’ll have to run two distinct lists (i.e., stuff on the permanent card and one for the masked cards).
SO I’ll report back how it worked out.
Of course, I’m interested in any feedback you have abut this.

College student is shocked that her professor can read her ‘private’ conversations on Zoom | Daily Mail Online

An American college student was horrified to learn — too late — that her professor can read all of the ‘private’ messages she sends on Zoom.

The young woman, Faith, has been trading casual messages — with some profanity — with other students, thinking that that the words were kept between them.

But when she received an email from her angry professor, she learned that the educator has been reading what she wrote all along.

China global cover-up concerns after it filed patent for drug that helps some patients recover | Daily Mail Online

China tried to patent potential coronavirus drug Remsvidir the DAY AFTER Beijing confirmed virus was transmissable between humans

  • On January 21 a patent for commercial use of Remdesivir was filed in China
  • The application was made by the top-secret Wuhan Institute of Virology bio-lab
  • It is at the centre of concerns about a possible leak of the coronavirus disease
  • Leaked documents shown that China officials who knew they faced an epidemic delayed warning the public for six days


China filed a patent for a drug seen as one of the best potential weapons against coronavirus the day after it confirmed human transmission of the disease.

The revelation that it moved so fast fuels concerns about a cover-up of the pandemic when it erupted in Wuhan last year, and suggests that China’s understanding of the virus was far advanced from the impression given by its public stance.

Last night, Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, joined the growing global clamour for a full, independent inquiry into China’s role.

Coronavirus & U.S. Cities — Moving Out Cities and Not Coming Back | National Review

A possible wave of Americans moving out of cities, a future pandemic, and the political divide is likely to be altered from this coronavirus crisis.
— Read on

# – # – # – # – #


Seems like the WuFlu may have come to the USA via Italy but in my mind there is little doubt where these viruses originate. Now the question is was it a deliberate bio strike by the PRC? No fatalities in Hong Kong or Peking. And this ended the liberty activist demonstrations in HK. This evidence is circumstantial, to be sure, but it all points toward the Wuhan labs. Thanks to the Chinese coverup, we may never have direct, conclusive evidence—intelligence rarely works that way—but Americans justifiably can use common sense to follow the inherent logic of events to their likely conclusion.

Convenient or deliberate?

The fix is obviously in on Cuomo’s ‘investigation’ of nursing-home horrors

The concerned CEO made another plea the next day, asking if he could send the home’s suspected coronavirus cases to the field hospital at the Javits Center or the USNS Comfort. No dice, came the answer.

So much for the claims from Gov. Cuomo and his health czar, Dr. Howard Zucker, that overwhelmed facilities just needed to ask for help if handed patients they couldn’t safely handle — thanks to Zucker’s March 25 mandate that all homes accept coronavirus-positive cases.

We expect more damning evidence will surface in the days ahead.

What If the Lockdown Was All a Big Mistake?

From California to New Jersey, Americans are protesting in the streets. They are demanding an end to house arrest orders given by government officials over a virus outbreak that even according to the latest US government numbers will claim fewer lives than the seasonal flu outbreak of 2017-2018.

Alcohol is a diuretic, and when consumed in sufficient quantities, it leaches water from all over your body, including your brain. The result is often a crippling headache, muscle pain, and a thirst you just can’t seem to quench, no matter how much water or how many sugar- and calorie-packed sports drinks you guzzle down.

Zookeepers Share How Animals Are Reacting To The Lack Of Visitors

Staying home in quarantine with your loved ones feels like living in a zoo now and then. Nobody said it’d be easy. Meanwhile, the real zoos out there have closed their doors to visitors. And that means that porcupines, cheetahs, rhinos, and all the bestest boys and girls are having no proper social life.

For a lot of our animals, having the ability to interact with guests is actually extremely important. Even for primates to be able to play with kids through the glass, they are missing out on a lot of enrichment. Guests keep a lot of the monkeys entertained. I watch our guests all day long show our marmosets and capuchins selfie cameras and they LOVE to see their reflection. Guests will also show videos on their phones to animals and the monkeys totally enjoy it.

TINFOILHAT: The WuFlu was deliberate attack on the USA by China

Sources believe coronavirus outbreak originated in Wuhan lab as part of China’s efforts to compete with US
By Bret Baier, Gregg Re | Fox News

*** begin quote ***

EXCLUSIVE: There is increasing confidence that the COVID-19 outbreak likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.

This may be the “costliest government cover-up of all time,” one of the sources said.

The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus – a naturally occurring strain that was being studied there – was bat-to-human and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.

The “increasing confidence” comes from classified and open-source documents and evidence, the sources said. Fox News has requested to see the evidence directly. Sources emphasized — as is often the case with intelligence — that it’s not definitive and should not be characterized as such. Some inside the administration and the intelligence and epidemiological communities are more skeptical, and the investigation is continuing.

What all of the sources agree about is the extensive cover-up of data and information about COVID-19 orchestrated by the Chinese government.

*** end quote ***

Anyone who doesn’t find this “convenient” maybe a fool, or delusional!

How do you explain the WuFlu from skipping Peking and Hong Kong?

Wuhan, with its extensive connection to Italy and the USA, would be the perfect vector for such an attack.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The FBI needs to be shutdown; possibly a new agency formed with NO ONE from the old FBI

Disclosures: Russian Disinformation in Steele Dossier Fueled Collusion Probe by Obama, Comey, FBI
16 Apr 2020

*** begin quote ***

The FBI heavily relied on a Democrat-funded dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, even after learning that the document likely contained Russian disinformation, evidence declassified this week revealed.

On Wednesday, Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley (IA) and Ron Johnson (WI) released newly declassified footnotes from the December 2019 Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general (IG) report about the FBI’s Russia collusion probe. The footnotes indicate that the FBI may have assisted Moscow in interfering in the American elections by relying on Russian disinformation contained in Steele’s infamous “pee dossier” to carry out its collusion investigation.

FBI officials began their investigation during former President Barack Obama’s administration while the agency, a component of DOJ, was under the leadership of James Comey. The probe, which ultimately found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, carried into the current administration.

Steele’s dossier served as the FBI’s primary source for its collusion allegations, even though the agency knew Russian disinformation had tainted the information in the document. In other words, the Democrat-funded, infamous “pee dossier” that fueled the FBI’s collusion investigation relied on Russian lies.

A press release issued by Grassley and Johnson on Wednesday noted:

Despite multiple reports in 2017 warning that claims in an anti-Trump dossier [by Steele] were “false” and “part of a Russian disinformation campaign,” the FBI continued to rely on the Democrat-funded opposition research to spy on a Trump campaign aide.

The two senators added in a joint statement:

As we can see from these now-declassified footnotes in the IG’s report, Russian intelligence was aware of the dossier before the FBI even began its investigation and the FBI had reports in hand that their central piece of evidence was most likely tainted with Russian disinformation.

The FBI is an example of a special militia that was hated by the Dead Old White Guys.
