TINFOILHAT: Don’t believe conspiracy theories; coronavirus wasn’t created in a lab

Anderson and her collaborators found evidence in the virus’ spike-like proteins, which help the infection grab and penetrate animal cells, to determine that they “evolved to effectively target a molecular feature” specific to human cells. The function is so effective, in fact, that they believe only natural selection could have produced such an efficient virus.

The Scripps teams also note that anyone attempting to generate a new coronavirus on their own — in a lab, for instance — would have used a prior coronavirus as a template. But the structure of SARS-CoV-2, they found, was unlike any they had previously encountered in humans, and instead resembled those found in bats and pangolins. Scientists believe the virus may have originated in a bat.

Dr. Josie Golding, epidemics lead at UK-based Wellcome Trust, also told Scripps that their findings are “crucially important to bring an evidence-based view to the rumors that have been circulating about the origins of the virus (SARS-CoV-2) causing COVID-19.”

So, what about the report that there was Chinese bio lab 600 yards from the wild food market in Wuhan?

Didn’t anyone else see that report?

Awfully convenient!

Or will this be like the BBC report of WTC7 collapse 20 minutes before it did?

Why did the BBC report the WTC Building 7 collapse twenty minutes in advance of the event?

Sorry but all I can do is ask questions and recall “hot stories gone cold”!

I only know what I am told and the quote from a great Jurist —  “If it doesn’t make sense, it’s not true.” — Judge Judy!

This all doesn’t make sense.  Too coincidental.

Maybe you shouldn’t blindly believe everything you read? Even if the source has a pretty solid reputation?

*** and ***

Below is a takedown of that article, and the good news is a much more nuanced and honest look at the origins of COVID-19, the Wuhan Strain of coronavirus is just a click away.

Thus, the high-affinity binding of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein to human ACE2 is most likely the result of natural selection on a human or human-like ACE2 that permits another optimal binding solution to arise. This is strong evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is not the product of purposeful manipulation.

As our report mentions right at the start, scientists passed the H5N1 Bird Flu through a series of ferret hosts until it gained ACE2 affinity and then became incredibly virulent, which is what’s seen with COVID-19 since its affinity to ACE2 is orders of magnitude higher than SARS. That process would leave a genome that appears “natural” and not purposeful as well since it wouldn’t leave a genomic smoking gun and would simply appear to be the result of “natural” selection. However the addition of artificial generations produced by this process of passing through ferrets in the lab would create a lot of genetic distance from any possible relatives – precisely what is seen in COVID-19: it forms its own clade and appears very distant from all other bat coronaviruses. So this is lazy research, they’re either unaware of the Bird Flu study or are willfully ignoring it.

So I, your faithful blogger and resident curmudgeon don’t believe ANYTHING.  Even that sun will rise tomorrow morning.  (Best I can say is: “It appears to rise every morning”!)

As far as the Wuhan virus is concerned, it’s an ideal Conspiracy Theory.  Because whatever is advanced as “proof” or “evidence” is probably tempered by politics, politicians, and bureaucrats.

Another Whistleblower Suicide: the Immediate and Unquestioned State Narrative of Philip Haney’s Death – LewRockwell

SECOND OF TWO BLOG POSTS ON THIS TOPIC — SPECIFIC RANT ABOUT “Philip Haney”

*** begin quote ***

The latest so-called “suicide,” which has all the markings of a planned assassination, is that of Philip Haney. Haney was a whistleblower, and one of the founders of Homeland Security. He was a true insider that had evidence, and wrote about it in his book, “See Something, Say Nothing,” about the Obama administration’s orders to destroy the raw material that had been collected concerning Islamic terrorist groups.

*** and ***

Philip Haney was, according to those that knew him, a very happy man, had just recently gotten engaged to be married, and was attempting to publish a follow-up to his tell-all book. But do I know for a fact that he did not commit suicide?

*** and ***

The Epstein story was disappeared almost immediately, and held much more interest to the ignorant masses, so how long before this likely murder is disappeared from view?

Here’s the story about the death.

Here’s another “apparent suicide” that does seem to be “kosher”.

Like Epstein, it doesn’t make any sense.  Happy about to be married?

Convenient for BHO44 that he “suicided”, maybe it’s like ARKAN-cide?

If anyone decides to be a whistleblower, then they better have a depot of data “in case of my death”.

TINFOILHAT: Another Whistleblower Suicide: the Immediate and Unquestioned State Narrative of Philip Haney’s Death – LewRockwell

FIRST OF TWO BLOG POSTS ON THIS TOPIC — GENERAL RANT ABOUT “Conspiracy Theories”

It seems due to the brainwashing of the American commoner, and the almost total indoctrination machine of the state that is used to dumb down the populace at large, that apathy has become so rampant as to allow the general acceptance of fallacious state narratives. These narratives that concern the very suspicious deaths of any that challenge the ruling class or their political puppets, and almost without question, seem to be never-ending these days. There are an unbelievable number of victims of so-called “apparent suicides,” assassinations, outright murder, disappearance, strange car crashes, poisonings, and any other number of unlikely death scenarios of those that have damning information about the state, its wars, and its secrets, and have the guts to tell the truth. Coincidence is no longer a reasonable argument concerning these deaths, and actually never has been legitimate.

I’m fed up with the Establishment, the Deep State, Politicians, and Bureaucrats feeding us “barbara streisand” and expecting us to take it without question, confirmation, evidence, or even “reasonability”.  “Don’t Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining” … book title by the pre-eminent jurist of our day Ms. Judy Sheindlin.  That’s how I feel. She’s also famous for: “If it doesn’t make sense, it’s not true.

I think the reason, that “Conspiracy Theories” take root and hand on, is that they try to apply “common sense” to what appears implausible, impossible, or just a ridiculous explanation that we are supposed to believe and shut up.

Over the years, I’ve been building a taxonomy of the various “Conspiracy Theories” (e.g., JFK; Pearl Harbor; Lusitania) and their subsections — like 9/11 has the 1&2 WTC collapse, Pentagon, 7WTC, and the Saudi-gate (both the connection to the Saudi Royals and that they were hustled out before they could be questioned)!!!

This article has nice set of “attributes” — “apparent suicides,” assassinations, outright murder, disappearance, strange car crashes, poisonings, and any other number of unlikely death scenarios!

I’m going to get more rigorous on that taxonomy.

The CIA Coined the Term Conspiracy Theorist In 1967. Just to discredit objections.

Well that doesn’t work with me.  I’ll just adjust my tin foil hat and keep asking questions.

TINFOILHAT: Murdered JFK lover Mary Pinchot Meyer is revived in two new books

Pinchot Meyer was killed on October 12, 1964, a few weeks after the release of the Warren Commission report on the JFK assassination. The man accused of her murder was acquitted in 1965; the murder remains unsolved. Her diary was found and allegedly burned.

When it happened, I wondered if there was a connection.

We KNOW now that the Warren Commission was <pick your favorite adjective> wrong, biases, cover up, the final act in the coup by LBJ, an adjunct of the deep state?

I am still hopeful that the truth will still come out.

TINFOILHAT: Can PG&E deliver power at all?

2019-Nov-03

Was There Another Reason For Electricity Shutdowns In California?
Authored by Richard Trzupek via The Epoch Times,

*** begin quote ***

According to the official, widely reported story, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) shut down substantial portions of its electric transmission system in northern California as a precautionary measure.

Citing high wind speeds they described as “historic,” the utility claims that if they didn’t turn off the grid, wind-caused damage to their infrastructure could start more wildfires in the area.

Perhaps that’s true. Perhaps. This tale presumes that the folks who designed and maintain PG&E’s transmission system are unaware of or ignored the need to design it to withstand severe weather events, and that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) allowed the utility to do so.

Ignorance and incompetence happens, to be sure, but there’s much about this story that doesn’t smell right—and it’s disappointing that most journalists and elected officials are apparently accepting it without question.

*** end quote ***

Here’s an interesting theory as to why PG&E has to cut power to Customers.

Of course, there’s no way for Joe-Sixpack to know if this is true, but it’s an “interesting question”.

I’d bet there’s some truth to it.

TINFOILHAT: The Implosion of Building 7 Remains the Irrefutable ‘Smoking Gun‘ of a 9/11 Inside Job – LewRockwell

The dramatic thrust about 9/11 that is always the undercurrent of the mainstream narrative goes as follows: “Middle Eastern highjackers piloted American planes with American passengers into American buildings, killing thousands of Americans, so let’s make them pay!” As a support for this narrative, however, the destruction of Building 7 a full 7 hours later is at best anticlimactic. In fact, a closer examination of the evidence surrounding Building 7 begins to erode the entire narrative, and start us questioning whether the whole scene really played out the way we are being told.

If, as seems to be a growing consensus now, that all 3 buildings had been prepared for controlled demolitions in order to advance the narrative above, then perhaps Building 7, too, was meant to be hit by a plane. As it turns out, its demolition 7 hours later appears to have been damage control for a part of the plan that went wrong.  By that time, word was getting out on the ground that Building 7 was going to be taken down. Reports came to journalists and other onlookers from law enforcement officers, the fire department and others that the building was going to be taken down, and that people should leave the area.

The video below provides compelling testimony of this, since it is from a collection of people who were there as it was happening, and with no particular agenda other than to say what they were told, what they heard, or what they saw.

All that is necessary is to ask the question.

If this upsets, some people so be it.

If this is true, then it becomes the biggest hit on Gooferment propaganda since Pearl Harbor. (Referring to FDR engineering the Japanese attack to get out of the Great Depression.)

While this story is not imho “proven” yet, it certainly is more open and honest that the NIST report or other Gooferment “pronouncements” on the whole 911 disaster. NIST never shared its data or models for “security” reasons. That’s what the Gooferment always says.

Remember that the CIA created the phrase “Conspiracy Theories” to discredit any disagreement with the “official story”.

In my opinion, from my brain square in my tin foil hat, a Conspiracy Theorist merely needs to assert “inconvenient facts”, ask questions, or put “small holes” in the Gooferment propaganda balloon to have default credibility. They may be wrong. They may have been wrong on other topics in the past. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), they deserve a “fair hearing”; not dismissal out of hand.

If there is a “conspiracy”, it’s from the “Deep State” and / or “the rich elite”. So, “We, The Sheeple” need to suspect everything they are EVER told by Gooferment politicians or bureaucrats.

As I said in my recent vaccine post, where the NY DOH bureaucrat swears that vaccines are same, I point to my personal “EXHIBIT #1” of Christie Todd Wittman, the head of the EPA, assuring us that the air around the 911 site was safe to breathe. Argh! TO quote a famous TV jurist, “I wouldn’t believe you, if your tongue came notarized.” … attributed to Judge Marilyn Milian, but may have an earlier history.

YMMV, but I think the Gooferment “explanation” of 911/7WTC is suspect at best.

More Americans Questioning Official 9/11 Story As New Evidence Contradicts Official Narrative, by Whitney Webb – The Unz Review

It was not until nearly two months after its collapse that reports revealed that the CIA had a “secret office” in WTC 7 and that, after the building’s destruction, “a special CIA team scoured the rubble in search of secret documents and intelligence reports stored in the station, either on paper or in computers.” WTC 7 also housed offices for the Department of Defense, the Secret Service, the New York Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management and the bank Salomon Brothers.
