RANT: Someone needs to put Faucci and his dealings with Wuhan Institute of Virology under the microscope

Leaked Documents: Officials Are Hiding What Happened in Wuhan
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola October 16, 2021

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Newly leaked documents released by research group DRASTIC include a March 2018 grant proposal from the EcoHealth Alliance filed with the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
  • The proposal aimed to collaborate with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) to “carry out advanced and dangerous human pathogenicity bat coronavirus research”
  • According to DRASTIC, the proposal involved “injecting deadly chimeric bat coronaviruses collected by the Wuhan Institute of Virology into humanized and ‘batified’ mice”
  • The proposal involved the introduction of human-specific cleavage sites to bat coronaviruses; the existence of a novel furin cleavage site is a significant reason why many believe SARS-CoV-2 was created through gain-of-function (GOF) research
  • EcoHealth Alliance requested $14 million from DARPA for what it expected to be a 3.5-year project; DARPA rejected the proposal but that doesn’t mean the research wasn’t ultimately carried out
  • The revelations further erode the credibility of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has denied funding GOF research at WIV, and EcoHealth Alliance’s Peter Daszak, who called claims that SARS-CoV-2 may have come from a lab “conspiracy theory”

Yet another smoking gun has been found in the origin of COVID-19, courtesy of newly leaked documents released by research group DRASTIC, or Decentralized Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigating COVID-19.

The documents include a March 2018 grant proposal that EcoHealth Alliance filed with the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to collaborate with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) to “carry out advanced and dangerous human pathogenicity bat coronavirus research.”1

The proposal was reportedly rejected by DARPA for being too risky, but the revelations further erode the credibility of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has denied funding gain-of-function (GOF) research at WIV,2 and EcoHealth Alliance’s Peter Daszak, who called claims that SARS-CoV-2 may have come from a lab “conspiracy theory.”3

CNN Takes Another Stab at My Best-Seller
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
October 11, 2021

*** begin quote ***

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • August 4, 2021, CNN aired a hit piece on me based on a fabricated report by the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), which has since been refuted by Facebook
  • October 4, 2021, CNN aired a follow-up, urging Amazon to get into the book burning business by banning sale of my best-selling book, “The Truth About COVID-19: Exposing the Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal”
  • They claim my book is full of “lies,” “misinformation” and “mistruths.” But not a single piece of evidence to back that up is presented
  • By and large, the COVID shot is unnecessary for most people, for the simple reason that most people aren’t at risk of dying from COVID-19
  • Your risk of dying from COVID-19 is less than 1%, and your absolute risk reduction from the COVID shot is right around 1% (maxing out at 1.3%). This means it is mathematically impossible for COVID “vaccines” to have a favorable impact on public health

*** and ***

Baldwin replied to this short-list with the following mainstream media links, none of which, by the way, has been accused of being superspreaders of mistruths:

  • “The trials were designed specifically to succeed. www.forbes.com/sites/williamhaseltine/2020/09/23/covid-19-vaccine-protocols-reveal-that-trials-are-designed-to-succeed/?sh=21270ac65247

  • The experiments are continuing through 2027 as the FDA APPROVAL requires Pfizer to submit study results analyzing risk of myocarditis and pericarditis, and risk to long-term infant development in pregnant women. Study results reports will be submitted to the FDA for review on Oct 31, 2025 and May 31, 2027 respectively.
  • Nearly 60% of gravely ill patients are fully vaccinated, while stating the Pfizer vaccine is just 39% effective. www.sciencemag.org/news/2021/08/grim-warning-israel-vaccination-blunts-does-not-defeat-delta and www.cnbc.com/2021/07/23/delta-variant-pfizer-covid-vaccine-39percent-effective-in-israel-prevents-severe-illness.html.”

Once again we see the “politicization” of this scamdemic.  

Remember that Covid “vaccines” are NOT “vaccines”, unless the word takes on a new meaning.

That’s the Gooferment’s “process” was short circuited for the benefit of Big Pharma. 

“Free” “vaccines” filled the Big Pharma coffers and, of course, it flows down to their political contributions.

Influx of Haitian migrants pushing locals out of housing in Colombia beach town
10/1/2021, 9:42:21 PM · by blueplum · 4 repliesReuters via msn ^ | 01 October 2021 | Henry Esquivel
NECOCLI, Colombia (Reuters) – An influx of thousands of mostly Haitian migrants seeking transport northward toward the United States is pushing locals in the Colombian beach town of Necocli out of housing, residents said, as landlords favor migrants able to pay in dollars. The backlog of migrants waiting in the town for scarce places on boat transport toward the jungles of the Darien Gap in Panama, where smugglers guide groups northward on foot, has swelled to up to 19,000 after the lifting of COVID-19 border closures…. Even commercial properties are being re-purposed….

For five years, these news lizards concocted every fantastic tale they could think up to slime President Trump. They made up stories about him, his family, and anyone who worked for him.

They conjured up stories about urinating hookers in Moscow, wacky bank transfers, and wild fever dreams about Mr. Trump colluding with various foreign governments.

They worked hand-in-hand with sleazy political operatives campaigning against Mr. Trump. They colluded with government hacks, military officers, and even our own Justice Department to destroy a president duly elected by the American people.

Almost as furiously as they made up stories about Mr. Trump, they whitewashed true stories about Mr. Biden and his deadbeat, crackhead, corrupt family.

In a shocking revelation first reported by Dan Dicks of Press for Truth (Canada), an FDA document admits that the CDC and FDA conspired to fabricate a covid-19 testing protocol using human cells combined with common cold virus fragments because they had no physical samples of the SARS-CoV-2 “covid” virus available.

*** begin quote ***

The Tenth Pin
In the early 19th century, bowling alleys were primarily owned by Bars and Pubs. A culture of crime and gambling became associated with it, and eventually, Bowling gained a poor reputation. In 1841, Connecticut banned ownership of nine-pin lanes in an attempt to curb gambling and crime. To get around the law, players simply added one more pin, which nullified the ban and the modern game was born. There have been few changes to the rules of the sport since then.

OPINION 
FBI tears innocent New Yorker’s life into shreds after Jan. 6: Devine
By Miranda Devine
June 23, 2021 | 10:39pm | Updated

*** begin quote *** 

Joseph Bolanos was a pillar of his community. President of his Upper West Side block association for the past 23 years, he looked out for his neighbors during the pandemic. He dropped off masks and kept extra heaters in his rent-controlled apartment for seniors. He raised morale with a weekly street dance to show his support for essential workers. 

A Red Cross volunteer after the 9/11 attacks, the 69-year-old security consultant once received a police commendation for heroism after saving a woman from being mugged. 

Unmarried, and caring for his 94-year-old mother, he was a well-loved character in the quiet residential area. 

But now his neighbors think he is a domestic terrorist. 

Yes, he attended then-President Donald Trump’s rally in Washington, DC, on Jan. 6, but he never entered the Capitol. He was in a friend’s room at the JW Marriott a 30-minute walk away when the Capitol breach occurred. 

Nonetheless, he was raided in February by the FBI anti-terrorism task force, handcuffed, paraded and detained for three hours while his apartment was ransacked and all his devices confiscated. Four months later, he hasn’t been charged and doesn’t have his devices back, but his neighbors are shunning him, and he’s had two strokes from the stress. 

“It’s destroyed my reputation,” he says. “I’m not a violent invader … I do not condone the criminality and violence on [Jan. 6] whatsoever.” 

The FBI told Bolanos he was raided because of a tip to the Jan. 6 hotline from a neighbor who said he had overheard him “boasting” about being at the Capitol. 

An FBI agent phoned Bolanos the Sunday after the riot and left a message. He returned the call the next day, but never heard back.

It’s another reason to hate Fauci. It’s another example showing how bad he is at his job. The man was wrong about testing, the vaccine (he thought we didn’t need one), and masks. He admits in emails that the masks we all wore for a year did nothing to curb the spread. Only Fauci can explain why he did what he did on COVID. He lied. He was biased. He is the poster child for the death of medical expertise. They got political. They wanted Trump gone, but now the population, except for woke liberals, have rightfully turned their backs on these political clowns. They’re not doctors. They’re DNC operatives.

Novak Djokovic took another step towards cementing his GOAT status with an incredible five-set win over Stefanos Tsitsipas to claim Grand Slam title No. 19. But the real highlight was a young fan’s reaction when the Serb gave him his racket after the match.

The boy was overwhelmed with emotion, absolutely losing it as the cameras zoomed in.

“He was in my ear the entire match, basically, especially when I was two sets to love down,” Djokovic said at his post-match press conference. “He was encouraging me, he was actually giving me tactics as well.

9 Ways China Created a Pandemic that Have Nothing to Do with the Wuhan Lab
FRANCES MARTEL

*** begin quote ***

The resurgence of a theory that the Chinese coronavirus first began infecting people through an accident at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) has rekindled outrage towards Beijing but presents the danger of obscuring the many actions China took to spread the disease regardless of where it originated.

*** and ***

  • Turning a Blind Eye to Illegal Wildlife Sales in Wet Markets
  • Destroying All Early Virus Samples
  • Arresting and Silencing Wuhan Doctors for Warning of a Disease Outbreak
  • Failing to Test and Isolate Potential Coronavirus Patients
  • Hosting a “Family-Style” Banquet for 130,000 People a Month into the Pandemic
  • Cutting Domestic Flights, Letting 5 Million People Leave Wuhan
  • Blocking Warnings from Taiwan to the W.H.O. that the Virus Was Contagious
  • Telling the W.H.O. the Virus Was Not Contagious

Approximately 3,000 mail-in ballots counted in the Nov. 3 election were supposedly cast by UCSB students residing in a voting precinct that, along with other dorm buildings, includes the Francisco Torres/Santa Catalina Residence Hall at 6850 El Colegio Road in Goleta.

Problem: Due to COVID-19, the Torres Building, which normally accommodates 1,300 students, was empty and locked down through most of 2020, as were all other UCSB dorms.

This means no students/voters were residing inside the Torres Building (nor any of the other dorms) during the election season.

Over the last several months, NFL players have been arrested for DUI, domestic violence, battery, disorderly conduct, hit-and-run, drugs, armed robbery, vandalism, drug violations (see photo of Denver’s Melvin Gordon, arrested in October for drunk driving). When these players add Black Lives Matter activism to their sorry acts, it only alienates more fans.

RANT: The “Delphic Oracle” problem — Predict but can’t change

2019-Jun-28

Anyone else find that they can “predict” the future, but are powerless to change it.

I call it the “Delphic Oracle” problem.

*** begin quote ***

The Delphic Oracle was the most influential religious site in the ancient Greek world.  Speaking from a tripod in a crypt under the temple of Apollo at Delphi, the priestess called the Pythia acted as a medium for the god, and spoke the divine prophecies while in a state of trance or possession. 

*** end quote ***

When people ask the Oracle a question, they got a cryptic answer and the heard what the wanted. 

Sometimes when people pose a “problem” to me, I give them my best answer. And then they go off and do what they want.

Often, I can foresee the consequences of choices — no great skill to “foresee” a disaster from an “obviously” bad choice — but it’s frustrating that you can’t prevent the disaster.

Argh!

Maybe the solution is to just stop “advising” or “predicting” and  just say “no opinion” or some other weasel words or platitudes.

Argh!

This vote only requires you to forward it to someone else for it to be counted.

As many of you are aware, the Knights of Columbus submitted to congress that the words “Under God” should be added to our pledge of allegiance.  Both Houses of Congress passed the law and it was signed by President Eisenhower in 1954.  The information below was based on a poll taken by NBC on what percentage should keep the words in our pledge versus the percent who want it removed.

If you read this and agree that “under God” should be left in the pledge, then just forward it to others and you have voted for it to be left in.  If you delete it and don’t forward it you are voting NO to “under God…”  Easy, huh?

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

86% to keep God in the Pledge of Allegiance and 14% against.  That is a pretty commanding’ public response.

Why should our Nation cater to 14%?

If you agree, pass this on. If not, simply delete.

MY RESPONSE:

Sorry, but “no”.

If one, as a citizen, pledges “allegiance”, then one assumes that there is some type of “social contract”.  In order for there to be a “contract”, Judge Judy says there has to be a meeting of the minds and considerations exchanged.  The State, in return for my allegiance, is supposed to protect me from aggression.  Yet, in its own courts, <<<Warren v. District of Columbia[1] (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981) >>> held that the Government police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to citizens based on the public duty doctrine.

Hence, I think the current Gooferment has violated the terms of any “social contract”.   It has also, with reckless disregard, exceeded its Consititutional limitations.  

Therefore, I refer to Lysander Spooner  — 

“Inasmuch as the Constitution was never signed, nor agreed to, by anybody, as a contract, and therefore never bound anybody, and is now binding upon nobody; and is, moreover, such an one as no people can ever hereafter be expected to consent to, except as they may be forced to do so at the point of the bayonet, it is perhaps of no importance what its true legal meaning, as a contract, is. Nevertheless, the writer thinks it proper to say that, in his opinion, the Constitution is no such instrument as it has generally been assumed to be; but that by false interpretations, and naked usurpations, the government has been made in practice a very widely, and almost wholly, different thing from what the Constitution itself purports to authorize. He has heretofore written much, and could write much more, to prove that such is the truth. But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.” Lysander Spooner (1808-1887), No Treason (1870) http://praxeology.net/LS-NT-6.htm#no.6 

 — that it’s time for a “revolution” to put the evil genie BACK in the bottle or Pandora’s box.

I do NOT consent.

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

All this being sad, I’m too old and weak to to fight the Leviathan State alone.  But that doesn’t mean I have to go along willing “when they load us on the trains to the camps.”

From my cold dead hands.

TO MY OLD HIGH SKRULE CHUM WHO SENT THIS TO ME, I INCLUDED:

P.S.: “And when we die, and you are sent to heaven for doing your conscience, and I am sent to hell for not doing mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?” Paul Scofield as Thomas More in “A Man for All Seasons” (1966)

And, when it’s said, or the National Anthem is sung, I’ll stand respectfully to all the women and men who died, or spilled their blood, to protect the ideals of the nation.  They may have been misguided, deceived by politicians and bureaucrats, and betrayed by their fellow countrymen, but they deserve my respect for their sacrifice. I am morally responsible for these casualties happening.

Saints-Rams controversy: NFL allowed refs to steal Super Bowl berth

Same with the Saints. And blaming referees is almost always a loser’s lament. Except when a call this terrible comes in an elimination game. Then, it’s larceny. The NFL had been begging for something like this for years as the quality of its officiating eroded amid weekly yelps and protests. It was bound to happen sometime, to some team.

It happened to the Saints. They were robbed.
