Dear KMAG: 20220110 Joe Biden Didn’t Win ❀ Open Topic / The Ethical Skeptic’s Elevator Pitch / Corbevax – The “Good” Vaccine That Snuck* Past The Criminals

Joe Biden didn’t win. This is our Real President:

AND our beautiful REALFLOTUS.

Get your rest, Trumpy Bear! You’re going back to the White House!!!

I think this statement is one of the best political speeches ever! Thank you, Trumpismine, for alerting us to this gem!


Please Stand By For A Brief Interruption…..

*SNUCK – A Special Wolfie’s Wheatie’s Word of the Day

Is it “snuck” or is it “sneaked”? DA WOOF was raised on “snuck”, more than likely because of his young hillbilly associates.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has a wonderful discussion of this point.

LINK: https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/snuck-or-sneaked-which-is-correct

Bottom Line:

TAKE YOUR PICK

FTA:

The original past tense of sneak was sneaked, following the pattern of other regular verbs. However, in the 19th century snuck started appearing, and is now the more common version for the past tense of “sneak.” Most irregular verbs become regular over time, but sneak has become irregular, and no other word like sneak (peek, creak, etc.) follows a similar pattern.

We shall return to our roots and use “snuck” as often as possible, but “sneaked” where it sounds better, like “sneaked a peek”.

We now return you to our regular programming.


The Business At Hand

This Stormwatch Monday Open Thread remains open – VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA/KAG/KMAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).

And indeed, it’s Monday…again.

But we WILL get through it, NO PROBLEM.


The Rules

Boilerplate, more or less, but worth reading again and again, if only for the minor changes, and to stay out of moderation.

The bottom line is Free Speech. Theories and ideas you don’t agree with must be WELCOME here, and you must be part of that welcoming. But you do NOT need to be part of any agreement.

I want to make TWO POINTS today.

POINT 1 – No Political Correctness (of Any Kind)

We shall endeavor to keep all forms of political correctness OUT of this place.

Even a hypothetical MAGA PC.

The idea that some things cannot be said “because MAGA” or “because Trump” is a non-starter. Don’t even.

THAT is a path back to BUSHISM and RINOism.

The utter banishment of PC is how we make sure that ALL “non-establishment voices” can be heard.

Political correctness always starts off with “we’re just asking you to be nice”, or, “we all believe this, don’t we?”, but it always ends up in censorship, because that is where it was ALWAYS HEADED.

You can use LOGIC, REASON, RELIGION, SCIENCE, and any other form of honest quarrel, even as simple as saying “I don’t like that”, but NOT political correctness.

PC is the most insidious infringement of free speech to ever exist.

And PC is not just a leftist thing.

A classic example from history is “You can’t criticize a sitting President during wartime.”

Where in the hell did THAT come from?

I would think that wartime is THE MOST IMPORTANT TIME for there to be criticism – even from people I absolutely can’t STAND (and I did like the Dixie Chicks, even when they were stupid as hell!)

Nope.

No idea, discussed honestly, truthfully, and with the agreed level of civility, is “beyond the pale”.

This site does not exist to protect certain ideas from examination. It exists to shine light into EVERY nook and cranny.

Thus, please don’t demand that certain topics or ideas be “off limits”, or declare that they are justifying of incivility.

Point 2 – Ignoring Those Who Disagree In Automatic Ways

People who disagree with your comments are simply part of this place, because of FREE SPEECH. You just have to put up with it. All viewpoints are subject to being countered in a civil fashion.

“Civil” does not necessarily mean that you will not be annoyed or frustrated by the reply or replies.

Feel free to offer to “agree to disagree”.

Now there are some people who don’t want to “agree to disagree”. They feel a kind of necessity to speak their mind – to state ALL disagreements, and to continue ad infinitum. Often this is religious, where the person believes that failure to disagree is a dereliction of moral responsibility.

This can get frustrating, if you feel that you HAVE TO RESPOND.

Because you DON’T HAVE TO RESPOND.

The best medicine for ad infinitum disagreements, even in moral duty, is to IGNORE THE REPLY. And I mean don’t respond in ANY way.

Do not demand that the other person “henceforth ignore what you say”, because that’s not part of free speech. YOU ignoring THEM is.

Trust me – when people see that you are not responding to somebody who “gets in the last word no matter what”, they are NOT thinking that this person “won the argument”. They think you have better things to do. AND YOU DO.

SO….. [ENGAGE BOILERPLATE…..]

We must endeavor to persevere to love our frenemies – even here.

Those who cannot deal with this easy requirement will be forced to jump the hoops of moderation, so that specific comments impugning other posters and violating the minimal rules can be sorted out and tossed in the trash.

In Wheatie’s words, “We’re on the same side here so let’s not engage in friendly fire.”

That includes the life skill of just ignoring certain other posters.

We do have a site – The U Tree – where civility is not a requirement. Interestingly, people don’t really go there much. Nevertheless, if you find yourself in an “argument” that can’t really stay civil, please feel free to “take it to the U Tree”. The U Tree is also a good place to report any technical difficulties, if you’re unable to report them here. Please post your comment there on one of Wolf’s posts, or in reply to one of Wolf’s comments, to make sure he sees it (though it may take a few hours).

We also have a backup site, called The Q Tree as well, which is really The Q Tree 579486807. You might call it “Second Tree”. The URL for that site is https://theqtree579486807.wordpress.com/. If this site (theqtree.com) ever goes down, please reassemble at the Second Tree.

If the Second Tree goes down, please go to The U Tree, or to our Gab Group, which is located at https://gab.com/groups/4178.

We also have some “old rules” and important guidelines, outlined here, in a very early post, on our first New Year’s Day, in 2019. The main point is not to make violent threats against people, which then have to be taken seriously by law enforcement, and which can be used as a PRETEXT by enemies of this site.

In the words of Wheatie, “Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.”


A Moment of Prayer

Our policy on extreme religious freedom on this site is discussed HERE. Please feel free to pray and praise God anytime and anywhere.

Thus, please pray for our real President, the one who actually won the election.

You may also pray for our enemies, even Pantifa, who need a good prison ministry.


MUSICAL INTERLUDE

For your listening enjoyment, and general encouragement, we continue Wheatie’s tradition of fine music videos, shipped fresh from the seas of information by our intrepid authors.

First – a little “commercial” music from a certain airline.

Well – one thing leads to another. A bit of island-hopping, and then back to Hawaii…..

OK – that’s enough of that. Give me some of that LUCINDA CHICK that Smiley turned me onto! Let’s try the same song LIVE.

Now just add some ELVIS COSTELLO, who shows up with everybody.

OK – let’s see who else we can hook up Elvis with…..

OK. Maybe a good transition.


Call To Battle

Our beloved country is under Occupation by hostile forces.

Daily outrage and epic phuckery abound.

We can give in to despair…or we can be defiant and fight back in any way that we can.

Yup. MASS, GRAVITY, TIME and CONSEQUENCES THEREOF are most definitely a thing.

Joe Biden didn’t win.

And we will keep saying Joe Biden didn’t win until we get His Fraudulency out of our White House.


The Ethical Skeptic’s Elevator Pitch

You will recall LAST FRIDAY’S POST in which one of the topics was entitled:

ThEthSkep’s Big Fix of All Things Coof: CCP Hiding Chinese 2018 Release of SARS-CoV-2 Virus

This segment of the daily open covered a wonderful post (more like a “blog paper”) by The Ethical Skeptic, in which it is postulated (and to my satisfaction, demonstrated) that the Omicron variant is of a separate lineage from the Wuhan release and descendants thereof.

I had commented on The Ethical Skeptic’s post, that if he formulated an “elevator pitch” for his paper, I would trumpet it to the world.

WELL, HE DID!

Here is his “elevator pitch”, as well as the context.


WOO-HOO!!!

I got an “elevator pitch” from The Ethical Skeptic!!!

Elevator pitch

“When one examines the complete 144-slot genetic profile of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant, it becomes clear that its lineage is a full two years older than even the first Covid virus in Wuhan, China. Not only did this ancestor of Omicron cause an outbreak across the world in 2018 and 2019, that was mistaken as an 8-fold higher rate of flu across the Asia-Pacific-Africa for those years, but its genetics reveal a robust history of lab mouse serial passes and lab-edited alleles. This proving that its 2018 release as a less-deadly immunity-builder prophylactic virus, and the subsequent release of the more-deadly Wuhan variant two years later, both originated from a weapons-grade bio-lab in China.

China set up a red herring for the world to ‘discover’ at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and its local seafood wet market, suggesting an unfortunate but understandable accident was being thinly concealed. Now, the problem for China is, that unlike all the other variants, Omicron stuck around for some reason, and is now spilling the beans on the whole sordid affair.”

TES 🙂


Now, let me repeat that in five pieces, with commentary in between.

But first, let me remind you, that this elevator pitch is NOT an abstract or a summary of the blog post. It is a small “explainer and convincer” that gives you the GIST of the proposition – enough to make you GET IT.

If you have just a few seconds to convince somebody that something needs attention, you need an “elevator pitch” – as in “I got on the elevator with the head of research, and finished my proposal right as she got off on her floor.”

Here we go!


When one examines the complete 144-slot genetic profile of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant, it becomes clear that its lineage is a full two years older than even the first Covid virus in Wuhan, China.

In my opinion, it has been clear that EVERYBODY is surprised by the genetic divergence of Omicron from the original Wuhan strain, as well as all the other descendants thereof. How in the HECK did that happen?

Well, it gets worse. It turns out that Omicron or its close ancestors have been around since about the time we first started looking at SARS-CoV-2.

It is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE that this virus is a product of mutation of Wuhan.

Something stinks.

Well, what TES has done, is to look closely at the genetics, and come up with a VERY plausible explanation of them, which ALSO explains many other interesting facts – particularly in the 2018-2019 timeframe.


Not only did this ancestor of Omicron cause an outbreak across the world in 2018 and 2019, that was mistaken as an 8-fold higher rate of flu across the Asia-Pacific-Africa for those years, but its genetics reveal a robust history of lab mouse serial passes and lab-edited alleles.

This matches up with many facts from 2018 and 2019, as well as my belief that China was actively engaged in some kind of shenanigans with the SARS outbreak of 2003.

China, in my opinion, has not only been LEARNING from secret and public accidental viral releases – it has been engineering many intentional releases for DECADES.

I think now is a good time to accept the following.

NOTHING that the CCP says should be believed or disbelieved. What they say is irrelevant, except as evidence of possible deception, criminality, and lies. Treat CCP or proxy statements as evidence from criminals – nothing more.

Example: https://www.theepochtimes.com/china-the-manipulation-of-data-and-the-biggest-lie-in-modern-history_4196857.html/

NOW – here is something interesting.

Here is a perfect example of Chinese scientific disinformation and Sun Tzu subterfuge.

LEARN from the ChiComs.

Chinese scientists (who may or may not believe what they are saying, because of omnipresent CCP infiltration, influence, control, and monitoring of all Chinese scientists) submitted – almost exactly 1 month after TES posted his work – a paper that is essentially COVER-UP of the evidence of mouse genetics in the lineage of Omicron which was revealed by TES.

The first link explains the paper in layman’s terms. The second link is to the paper itself.

LINK: https://basedunderground.com/2022/01/07/new-research-appears-to-confirm-that-omi-con-came-from-mice-indicating-likely-laboratory-origins/

PAPER: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC8702434/

What’s really SMART about this ChiCom “fix” is that they’re using Didier Raoult’s work concerning minks as a pretext here. This is a VERY typical Chinese science-spy suck-up technique.

Had I not worked with a bunch of Chinese and Russian spies for decades, being completely on guard for their bullshit, and yet having fallen for it a few times in spite of that experience and suspicion, I would not appreciate just how EXTREMELY GOOD they are at doing this stuff.

They will WEAR YOU DOWN WITH THE SUGAR and then SLIDE THE KNIFE IN when you can’t possibly see it.

And I ain’t sayin’ CIA CHICKS are bad, either, if you know what I mean.

What can I say? This is just like the horrible Zhang paper “proving” masks “work”, which was then used by American Democrat politicians to justify their mask policies used in their electoral coup of Trump.

Science is no longer free of OMNIPRESENT DECEPTION. Treat it accordingly.

I simply cannot emphasize this enough.

The CCP has no respect for “global” science. NONE. They use it – abuse it – and destroy it – all in the name of holding power. All those who trust the CCP, or the people it manipulates and influences – including many American governmental and organizational leaders – are going to get BURNED.

Likewise, if you automatically treat the science that CCP touches as “real”, be prepared to stumble.


This proving that its 2018 release as a less-deadly immunity-builder prophylactic virus, and the subsequent release of the more-deadly Wuhan variant two years later, both originated from a weapons-grade bio-lab in China.

The beauty of this explanation is not only that it explains the genetics, but that it explains many facts which we observed. TES has a good run-down, but in general, the “pre-COVID almost-COVID bugs” that people observed WERE IN FACT SOMETHING.

I think the real question is how much HELP China got on “our side”.

This is straight out of modern Chinese warfare – to strike an enemy in such a way that the enemy does not even understand THAT they have been struck. By using a prior release as a vaccine, the Chinese avoided all blame for a second release on their own soil.

This is brilliant warfare.

This fully comports with a tactic that the ChiComs absolutely love – which is to publicly “anticipate” a warfare capability that they ALREADY OWN AND USE IN BATTLE.

You will notice that by later in 2021, a few of those infamous “Chinese colonels” began to engage in a kind of “wolf warrior braggadocio” over the idea that China had won a great biological warfare victory over the West, by virtue of their superior “response” to COVID-19, and thus that biological warfare needed to be a key part of *FUTURE* Chinese war-fighting strategy.

Do NOT be fooled by this.

What this means is that China is already using biological warfare – and has been for some time. When Chinese colonels do this stuff, it is a psychological operation.


China set up a red herring for the world to ‘discover’ at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and its local seafood wet market, suggesting an unfortunate but understandable accident was being thinly concealed.

Again, the TES proposition explains so much about the multi-layer Chinese release cover-up, and all the subsequent, pre-calculated, pre-arranged back-pedaling.

First, there was bat soup.

Then there was no bat soup, but plenty of blame of racism. Clearly the work of the racist but infinitely self-hoaxing CCP.

Then I think it went to pangolins, and that was where I just started rolling my eyes. Smart people started believing blood samples (H/T Linda).

The Red Cross said it was definitely in America in December 2019.

Until somebody else proved October 2019.

And then the Italians proved it was prevalent in Europe in September 2019.

Again, the TES theory is perfect, explaining how the earlier “protective” viruses did a “long march” across Asia, thereby protecting China in a “mid-term practice run” of sorts – working out all the bugs, so to speak.

It just fits too well. Sorry, China.

AND – of course – this explains why the CIA and Twitter and the cut-out group “DRASTIC” created a double-down on a lab escape, conveniently proffered by a media that pilloried Trump for the same ideas, but realized that their “concession” would get Trump’s supporters to buy into a late release accident, to prevent them from seizing upon the highly explanatory idea of a two-stage release operation.

REALLY. They’re so easy to understand now.

Now, the problem for China is, that unlike all the other variants, Omicron stuck around for some reason, and is now spilling the beans on the whole sordid affair.

So – I have to ask – what is “some reason”?

Aubergine believes that the Omicron mildness is by White Hat design, and I almost have to agree.

Or perhaps there’s a bit of “AND” logic here.

Wouldn’t it be hilarious if the American military identified Omicron precursors in old blood samples, realized the actual viral timelines, realized that Omicron was a “remnant” of the Chinese pre-Wuhan “vaccine strain”, and essentially RE-DEPLOYED THE CHINESE VACCINE STRAIN as Omicron, in some fashion, at some time?

What this means is that instead of finding and using a racially selective bioweapon, which will inevitably be achieved and used by these racist CCP goons, but is still *possibly* a bit out of reach, the ChiComs worked with what they had on hand – a chronologically and geographically and immunologically selective BINARY bioweapon.

And yet – well – it’s blowing back a bit now. In more ways than one.

Interesting times just got more interesting.


Corbevax – The “Good” Vaccine That Sneaked Past The Criminals

I’ve already been pimping this crap online and IRL, and I have offered some opinions already, but now I’m ready to give you all a real run-down on it.

Here is my latest “pimp job” on The Gateway Pundit, on an article about some poor Israeli teenage girl who got killed by ONE INJECTION of the “clot shot”…..


WOLFM00N 2m

Any pro-vax out there who are even thinking of vaccinating your kids – WAIT FOR CORBEVAX.

  • no mRNA or cDNA
  • no full spike protein
  • no nanolipid technology
  • no Pfizer, Moderna, Wuhan or China involved
  • non-profit, developed by Texas vaccine expert Dr. Peter Hotez
  • professor of pediatrics at Baylor (yes – a pediatrician)
  • patent-free – anybody can make it
  • made in India (right now) – very cheap

Google “corbevax hotez” and get more information. This is an RBD subunit protein antigen vaccine – meaning it works around almost every WRONG THING that was done on purpose in the current vaccines in order to PUSH technology. This is an old-school vaccine.

If you’re hesitant, wait for a few months of results. The Phase III trial was good (zero serious side effects), but we all know better – a million doses have to go out before you really know how safe these things are.

IMO, the only safer vaccine would be this exact same type by nasal delivery.


SO – TMI – information overload for sure.

What did I say? Some safer vaccine?

YES – let’s start from the beginning now.


First, a hat tip to TheseTruths for a link to some OANN coverage of this new vaccine.

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 10:26 AM PT – Wednesday, January 5, 2022

Texas scientists rolled out a new COVID-19 vaccine, saying it’s patent-free and can be produced by any manufacturer in any country. The vaccine, called Corbevax, was developed by the Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine.

It has successfully passed human trials as safe and effective. The new treatment is based off protein-based technology that has been used in other vaccines for decades and it does not use MRNA.

India has already authorized production of 100 million doses per month of the new vaccine. Meanwhile, Texas scientists say not-for-profit vaccines will help defeat COVID-19 quicker.

“We, about 10 years ago, started making coronavirus vaccines and the irony is that all of our processes are used with that in mind,” explained Professor Peter Hotez, M.D. Baylor College of Medicine. “We build in low cost processes from the beginning because our health economist that we’ve collaborated with have always said if you don’t make it for under a few dollars a dose, you might as well not make it at all. So that’s all we know how to do, is make low cost vaccines.” 


The irony here is rich. You can already tell by the price – this is the UBUNTU (Linux) of coronavirus vaccines. And yet, it has somehow managed to get the blessings of organizations owned by BILL GATES.

Yes, Hotez had to let Pfizer and Moderna go first, but I still find it amazing that Hotez got this vaccine past the wicked Bill Gates during his own lifetime.

Almost makes me wonder if Hotez got some help from his anti-vaxx enemies, putting pressure on the various CLOT SHOTS.

Hmmmmmm……

Yes, Professor Hotez actually DESPISES Sharyl Attkisson over the autism issue, and used to savage her on Twitter. Not sure if he’s blocked her, but I would not be surprised.

AND YET – well – just listen to him.

You heard him. The only leftist buzzword that Hotez left out was “sustainability”. It’s very clear that he knows how to do the university PC bullshit walk, and yet – this guy may end up saving millions of “Deplorable” lives, with a “plain Jane” vaccine that could actually have BENEFITS exceeding RISKS.

Let’s look at more coverage.

Here is a fluff piece written by HOTEZ HIMSELF and his colleague, Maria Elena Bottazzi, in good old super-wokester SCI-AM.

Opinion

A COVID Vaccine for All

With proved technology and no-frills tech transfer, CORBEVAX is poised to reach hundreds of millions in the coming weeks

December 30, 2021

AUTHORS

Peter J. Hotez is a professor of pediatrics and molecular virology at Baylor College of Medicine, where he co-heads the Texas Children’s Center for Vaccine Development. He is the author of the newly released book Preventing the Next Pandemic: Vaccine Diplomacy in a Time of Anti-Science (Johns Hopkins University Press).  Follow Peter J. Hotez on Twitter

Maria Elena Bottazzi is co-director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development. She is also a professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine and associate dean of its National School of Tropical Medicine.


I must STRONGLY recommend reading the ENTIRE ARTICLE, which is short and easy to understand.

It is absolutely DRIPPING with VAXZI NARRATIVE and PC BUZZWORDS – and yet one gets the sense that the entire project is planned, positioned, and poised to BRING DOWN THE CLOT SHOTS. Or perhaps just to race right past them, as they self-destruct.

FTA (buzzwords and key points emphasized BY ME):

Two years into the pandemic, CORBEVAX is the first COVID vaccine designed specifically for global health. It is a milestone for global vaccine equity, something we believe will overcome vaccine hesitancy, and serves as a blueprint for how to develop a potent vaccine for pandemic use in the absence of substantial public funding.

The vaccine prototype was first developed by scientists at Texas Children’s CVD and Baylor before it was licensed, with no patents or strings attached, to Biological E. Limited (BioE).

The central government of India has already ordered 300 million doses. And BioE, the company manufacturing the vaccine, plans to produce 100 million or more doses per month starting in February. Approximately 150 million doses have already been produced and are ready to roll out. In addition to what the company is supplying to India, BioE plans to deliver more than one billion additional doses to other countries.

What this means is that CORBEVAX will soon vaccinate more people than vaccine doses donated so far by the U.S. government or any other G7 country.

This new COVID vaccine has several distinct features that make it particularly suitable for use in resource-poor settings: it is safe, effective and can be locally produced at very high quantities. CORBEVAX is easy to store and inexpensive. We hope it will be used in low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, where vaccine availability has generally been abysmal.

CORBEVAX is made using technology that has been employed worldwide for decades, meaning that manufacturing processes are generally already well-known and won’t require a steep learning curve like the one needed for the scale-up of new technologies such as mRNA, adenovirus and protein particle vaccines.

CORBEVAX is made through microbial fermentation in yeast, similar to the process used to produce the recombinant hepatitis B vaccine that many resource-poor countries make and employ. This will allow for local manufacturing of COVID vaccines similar to CORBEVAX. Texas Children’s CVD and Baylor have already licensed the COVID vaccine technology to companies in Indonesia and Bangladesh and have licensed it for production in African countries such as Botswana. Such vaccine technology and licensing agreements, together with co-development partners, represent the ideal example of how COVID vaccines can and should be produced locally and widely in countries in the Global South.

Like the recombinant hepatitis B vaccine that comes from the same technology, CORBEVAX has an excellent safety profile. In a phase 3 trial conducted in India, CORBEVAX produced mainly mild adverse events, making it perhaps one of the safest COVID-19 vaccines in use.

When compared with doses of the AstraZeneca–University of Oxford vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, CORBEVAX also produced a higher amount of neutralizing antibodies against the Delta and Beta variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID (We expect to have Omicron data soon.) And it provided more durable and lasting protection. The vaccine neutralized variants of concern in laboratory animal studies and was highly protective in two nonhuman primate challenge trials. The trial results are being prepared for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.

As a recombinant protein vaccine developed from the receptor biding domain of the spike protein on the virus’s surface, combined with Dynavax Technologies’ CpG 1018 adjuvant with alum, the Texas Children’s CVD COVID vaccine can be stored using simple refrigeration. And like the hepatitis B vaccine, this COVID vaccine has one of the lowest costs of any available to date. No patents have been filed on the vaccine technology, and Texas Children’s CVD is assisting and co-developing the vaccine alongside BE and other vaccine producers in the Global South, which helps keep the cost low.


There is a research paper cited in the text, from Hotez and company, which shows that this is strong recombinant tech – it is NOT a rushed product.

Genetic modification to design a stable yeast-expressed recombinant SARS-CoV-2 receptor binding domain as a COVID-19 vaccine candidate

Now you all may remember me talking about a German vaccinologist named Winfried Stoecker, who tried to develop and promote a very similar RBD vaccine – and who was shut down immediately by Angie The Dung Cow and her Green Shirts.

RBD_Regional_Antigenic_Vaccine_quadrupol-Mutante-3.png
RBD_Regional_Antigenic_Vaccine_quadrupol-Mutante-3.png

So why is Hotez positioned to vaccinate the world, and Stoecker remains OUT LIKE A CHUMP?

In my opinion, it’s because Peter Hotez plays their game and embraces the narrative with an almost perverse zeal and delight.

How perverse?

LINK: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/08/04/baylor-prof-urges-criticisms-of-fauci-and-other-scientists-prosecuted-as-hate-crimes/


YES. THIS is the ASSHOLE TROLL who suggested that criticism of Fauci should be a HATE CRIME.

And he did it in the scientific literature, too!!!


LINK: https://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.3001369

PDF: https://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article/file?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.3001369&type=printable


In my opinion, this guy is like a “reality” version of the angry white faux-tranny Titania McGrath – a troll so perfect that it has to be real, or reality so SPOT-ON that it becomes a troll.

Peter Hotez is so authentically in compliance with the narrative, that he holds power over the hypocrites who force it on everybody else.

Thus, Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci are forced to go along with their own narrative, by this bow-tie bozo – this three-mask martinet of mandate over-compliance.

Don’t worry – this move away from the clot shot serves the agenda of Gates and Fauci, by covering their rear ends when the heat is on. The super-villains are not stupid, and did not rise to their levels of control by allowing guys like Hotez to be anything but a “parachute” of sorts, if their private jets catch fire.

Still, how did Hotez pull it off?

In my opinion, going to INDIA was the key move. India understands the precarious position they are in, thanks to CHINA JOE in the White House. India telling Pfizer to talk to the hand, and also backing off on trumpeting the virtues of ivermectin, are BOTH in my opinion connected to an exit via the Hotez vaccine.

HOTEZ had to know that INDIA was his key to getting HIS VACCINE produced.

INDIA had to know that HOTEZ was capable of bailing them out from the CLOT SHOT.

INDIA understood that HOTEZ was donating them a money-maker to gain leverage on the CLOT SHOT.

HOTEZ understood that INDIA needed an easy break to steal influence from CHINA.

Both HOTEZ and INDIA knew that BILL GATES, CHINA and BIDEN were weakened by CLOT SHOT blowback, and were not in a position to keep the murderous ruse of the CLOT SHOT going.

The HOTEZ VACCINE could be delayed at first, but it could not be stopped, because CLOT SHOT problems would eventually make it impossible to delay or stop any other reasonable vaccines.

All in all, a beautiful chess game of scientific leverage.

So who wins?

In my opinion – GOD.

Matthew 18:6

But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Peter Hotez is very clear about the pediatric possibility of this vaccine. No matter what, I think he REALLY wants to help kids. If his vaccine isn’t “Clot Shot, Jr.”, then I think he may just do that.

We anticipate people will readily accept CORBEVAX and similar recombinant protein COVID vaccines, including for pediatric use. And clinical trials in children are also underway in India. Parents may even be more willing to accept CORBEVAX than vaccines made with a newer technology. If there was ever a COVID vaccine that might triumph over vaccine hesitancy and refusal, we believe this could be the one.

Is this vaccine better than simply catching the disease? We’ll see.

After what Pfizer, Moderna, Fauci, Gates and Biden have done, I trust NATURE more than vaccines. But I also “trust” some vaccines more than others.

I HOPE that THIS one – Corbevax – may be the new “gold standard” of coronavirus vaccine safety.

Wolfie’s Wheatie’s Word of the Day:

spanker

noun

On a square rigged ship, the spanker is a gaff-rigged fore-and-aft sail set from and aft of the aftmost mast. (Wikipedia)

The swinging, pole-controlled, triangular or quadrilateral sail or sails at the back end of a sailing ship. (Wolf)

The word has other definitions related to spanking (slapping or striking on the back end) that we will set aside for the moment.

Used in a sentence:

Our wonderful flag flew from the spanker of the Lady Washington.

Used in a picture:

https://historicalseaport.org/lady-washington-history/

Used in a video:

In the process of finding this video – passing over videos about – well – you can guess – I found THIS one, from Australia. The title is misleading – designed to get clicks and subscribers.

It’s worth watching to see the good and the bad of the Australian spring this last October.

Suddenly, I’m glad I’m in America.

People here at Ground Zero of Lefty Stupid seem to be getting cranky about it. Several times, I’ve had someone try to specify something slowly and clearly and not have the message go through, to which the original speaker would say, “f***ing mask” and try again.

There are rumors going around that a secret US-funded bio-lab was raided in Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan denies military laboratory was seized by rioters after Russia claimed a possible pathogen leak occurred at controversial facility, as country’s health ministry says more than 160 have been killed during protests in the country

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10384151/Kazakhstan-denies-funded-bio-lab-seized-protesters-deaths-rise-164-bloody-riots.html

Officials in Kazakhstan have denied that a controversial ‘military biological laboratory’ was seized in the recent unrest, which has so far claimed 160 lives since starting on January 2.

Russian media highlighted claims that the US-funded facility near Almaty was compromised, resulting in a possible leak of dangerous pathogens.  

The airport, mayor’s office and secret services buildings fell briefly into the hands of rioters during a wave of protests backed by shadowy armed cells.

The secret bio-laboratory funded by the US defence department – which has links to Russian and Chinese scientists – was also compromised in the disturbances, according to social media claims that it was seized.

‘This is not true. The facility is being guarded,’ said the health ministry which is responsible for the Central Reference Laboratory, in Almaty.

Official Russian news agency TASS had highlighted alleged social media reports that it was taken over by ‘unidentified people’ and ‘specialists in chemical protection suits were working near the lab so a leak of dangerous pathogens could have occurred’.

The laboratory’s existence has been controversial and in 2020 the country formally denied that it was being used to make biological weapons.

At the time, the Kazakh government stated: ‘No biological weapons development is underway in Kazakhstan – and no research is conducted against any other states.’

It was built in 2017 and is used for the study of outbreaks of particularly dangerous infections.

In 2018 there were claims – officially denied – that a new strain of meningitis had leaked from the lab.

The Kazakhs said earlier that no US personnel remain involved in the lab’s work, which included the study of Covid.

The furore over the lab came amid growing intrigue over the organisation of the protests that have now subsided after a large Russian force was sent to Kazakhstan.

Reports have cited well-coordinated armed groups alongside protesters against a gas price hike.

Pictures have emerged of guns seized in the riots in which almost 6,000 have been detained ‘with a sizable number of foreign nationals among them’.

It is as yet not clear where these alleged foreign provocateurs were from.

Dangerous pathogens are stored here, it is reported.

Deplorable Patriot

A warning of some sort? The lab is not denied, just what it is being used for.

There are reports out there also that the Amazon warehouse in Granite City that was destroyed in a Tornado last month was actually a Naval Intelligence asset, and the tornado was directed there. (I’m rather skeptical on the HAARP stuff, but that didn’t come out of nowhere.) Given that the path of the storm is one we see often, I’m beginning to wonder about some of them.

Sadie Slays

What I strongly suspect is happening is that they are using the cover of “bad weather” to destroy certain assets. They take a naturally occurring weather pattern, fudge the official weather data to make it look a lot worse than it actually is (all of the private weather services rely on the same government-provided NOAA data), then claim whatever they intentionally destroyed as “weather damage.” Hurricane Michael and Hurricane Laura were prime examples of this. Local damage and private weather stations did not match up with the official numbers.

Re-posting the video from yesterday’s thread where he mentions getting a booster shot (around 0:40). Some shills elsewhere are trying to write this off as “joking,” but I don’t buy it. If you look the venues on his tour, many of them require proof of vaccination. It makes sense that he would get the booster before going on tour.

I’m glad someone is making a reasonable vaccine, but I still don’t want it. I’ll trust the immunity I already have. I wonder how many people not already vaxxed are going to trust this new shot. It would have been a far better shot for seniors and people with co-morbidities. I wonder if the FDA will give it an EUA.

Linda

Amen! At this point, I’m thinking that I may never get another vaccine of any type.

Dreamt?

smiley2

ok yes

 👉  that is probably the correct spelling of the non-word.

TheseTruths

dreamt

[ dremt ]

verb

a simple past tense and past participle of dream.

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/dreamt

Is it incorrect to use dreamt instead of dreamed?

While “dreamed” is the dominant spelling for British and American English, you’re welcome to use dreamt to your heart’s desire. The only potential issue is that “dreamt” is less common than “dreamed,” so your audience might assume it’s a spelling error. 

https://thewordcounter.com/dreamed-vs-dreamt/

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Actually it’s a real word…just considered a bit archaic (like learnt instead of learned).

TheseTruths

Sometimes it has to be dreamt. It’s more poetic and expresses a dream-like quality that dreamed can’t achieve. 😄

“I have dreamt in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind. And this is one: I’m going to tell it – but take care not to smile at any part of it.” – Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. Dreamt is likely the British version. They also say learnt, for instance, and have constructions such as “didn’t ought to do” which give Americans fits… Two countries separated by a common language 🙂

In Spanish, there are two ways of conjugating a verb into the past. One way means that dum-de-dum-de-dum-wham!-dum-de-dum-de-dum, and the other way means that the thing happened gradually over time.

I sorta feel like “snuck” is appropriate when contemplating something sudden — “he snuck into the party when the firework exploded” — while “sneaked” implies more of a process. The cat video looks like a “sneaked”.

The “snook” is appropriately illustrated, but fails to mention its connection to “snooker”.

This reminds me of a rug we had when I was growing up. It was thick green shag with patches of shorter pile in different colors. Our cat was very careful to avoid the blue patches. But if she mistakenly landed on one, she shook her paw as if she had just stepped in a puddle.

Quite possible. There is a pedestrian bridge not far from here, with an open gridded surface and two carrying solid beams. Whenever I’ve walked with the dog there, the dog carefully balances along one of these beams. The surface is the same, reasonably paw-friendly all across the width, but the dog does NOT want to feel that he is walking on air.

In fact, I was on one of the party ferries here a while ago, and there was see-through glass on part of the floor. Even I felt uncomfortable walking on that, so I can very well picture what these dogs are thinking.

Cuppa Covfefe

This probably does, too 😀

The thing is, that would look totally ridiculous from the other side…like an uphill lump but then there’d still be that white area to the side intended to make it look like a sag in the floor.

Is “Gotten” Correct?

People in the United States and Canada use gotten for the past participle of got in most cases.

People in English-speaking countries outside of the United States and Canada usually use got.

Got and Gotten: The Differences

Both got and gotten existed as far back as Middle English. English speakers in North America preserved gotten as the past participle of got. Outside of North America, the shortened version became standard. Here are a few examples of how an American speaker would use gotten in a sentence:

*I’ve gotten better at singing since I started taking lessons.

*Movie tickets have gotten so expensive!

*Once you’ve gotten the computer working, would you try to fix the TV?

Most British speakers would use got instead of gotten in these sentences, or else change the phrasing entirely.

If you live in the United States or Canada, you will probably choose gotten as the past participle of get. If you are in another part of the world, you might favor got. No matter where you speak English, get is a common verb, so it’s important to use it correctly.

Cuppa Covfefe

Many Americans mistakenly interpret common English (as in British English) as being wrong. And many British do the same with regard to American English. A few pints in a local (pub) usually sorts that 🙂

I’m half English, so I see/hear many of these supposedly incorrect terms all the time. Being in Europe, British English is taught, which has made life quite interesting when discussing grammar with my son’s various English teachers. Oddly enough, one of them had studied in Canada for a while, and spent time in the USA as well. That was a very peaceful and pleasant year for all of us 🙂

And every time the Germans complain about my mangling umlaut pronunciation (äöü), I just ask them to pronounce “th” (which doesn’t exist in German; they pronounce it as a hard “t”). Always fun to watch that… Still, I’m working on my umlauts, and some day I’ll probably figure them out 😀

And logic. British Enlish is correct, and has existed FAR longer than American, Canadian, Australian, Kiwi, or Indian English. I have a 1955 boat-anchor Oxford Unabridged and an Unabridged Websters which face off from time to time. So, as they say here, Andere Länder, andere Sitten…

TheseTruths

I had to look that up…”other countries, other customs.”

I also hadn’t realized that there is no “th” sound in German. Interesting.

Gail Combs

No soft ‘ch’ either.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I’m assuming you mean the “ch” in “cheese.”

Actually German can render it with the spelling “tsch” which makes some sense when you consider the sound is an affricate (combination of a stop and a fricative), t + sh.

Their word for “Czech” is “Tschechisch.”

The Germans, for some reason, spell the sh sound with “sch”, so “tsch” for “ch” it is.

Gail Combs

Like in the french word Cherrie.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Ah, well, that’s actually “sh” in English I believe and they spell *that* sch.

Cuppa Covfefe

Not always. There’s a north/south divide on some words, e.g. “Ich”. Where one hears “Isch” on the one hand, and “eek” on the other…

The word for mute (as in “dumb” or non-speaking) is stumm, and pronounced schtumm…

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The sound in ich (where it’s not pronounced as a K) isn’t the same sound, though; it’s some sort of a palatal fricative that doesn’t exist in English except sometimes by accident. In other words, don’t pronounce it as if it rhymes with “fish.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiceless_palatal_fricative

GrammyInD

In some dialects it does rhyme with”fish”.

GrammyInD

Ask them to say “squirrel”. Have rarely heard non-Americans get it right. My husband is getting pretty good, but we have been practicing for 40 years!

GrammyInD

I have taught/tutored German at times and have used the following umlaut explanations:
For ü, try to say an american “e” as in “feet” while puckering your mouth like you are going to whistle. It sometimes helps to start with the “e” sound and then change the shape of your mouth while saying it.
For ö, pretend that somebody just punched you in the stomach. The sound you make will come pretty close.
For ä, try saying “e” as in bed with a big smile, slowly.
Wishing you success!

GrammyInD

That’s about right;)

Cuppa Covfefe

I actually do know how to pronounce them; it’s just that when reading out loud, I sometimes forget, and then take abuse for my American accent 🙂 Seems we tend to get economical with all the dots… as opposed to the Finns and Icelanders who love DOUBLE umlauts, and sometimes strings of them….

The Schwäbisch also are EXTREMELY sparsam, and tend to cut corners with pronunciation too… there’s even a Deutsch-Schwäbisch dictionary out there, as well as Asterix auf Schwäbisch…

My wife’s Schwäbisch, and wayyyy back when when we were looking for a kitchen (cabinets, etc.) to install in our newly-built house, we went further and further “into the hills” to find better (and less-expensive) work.

Finally, we got so far out into the sticks that she couldn’t understand their accents… I thought that was hilarious 😀 (I needled her a bit about that 🙂 )…

Still, we did find some nice work.
There’s “Stuttgarter Schwäbisch”, and then there’s “Breitschwäbisch” which tends to be incomprehensible to anyone except the locals…

A couple of examples 🙂

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Actually there are two distinct ‘th’ sounds in English. The one in ‘thing’ is unvoiced, and the one in ‘this’ is voiced. So next time, you can ask them to do them both.

It’s exactly the same difference as between ‘t’ and ‘d’ or for that matter (English) ‘s’ and ‘z’.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

And logic. British Enlish is correct, and has existed FAR longer than American, Canadian, Australian, Kiwi, or Indian English. I have a 1955 boat-anchor Oxford Unabridged and an Unabridged Websters which face off from time to time. 

Logic, become acquainted with some facts.

Those other dialects branched off from the English spoken in Britain two or centuries ago. But so has British English. It has changed too.

And in fact even that is not accurate, as Britain itself has regional dialects–very diverse ones, that almost cannot understand each other. And these other offshoots you mention may have branched off from them. So which British English are you going to crown as “correct” just because of your “logic”?

There isn’t, and never was, a single British English for you to honor with your arbitrary judgment of “correct.” There’s one specific dialect that happens to be spoken by the upper crust and is named “Received Pronunciation” because the BBC uses it; it declared itself to be “correct” and could make that stick because the nobility in England that spoke it ultimately held the power.

Gail Combs

Actually there are people in North Carolina that speak a dialect that is very close to the English of centuries ago.

The US island that speaks Elizabethan English

The Legendary Language of the Appalachian “Holler”

Is the unique Appalachian dialect the preserved language of Elizabethan England? Left over from Scots-Irish immigrants? Or something else altogether?

…. In fact, some say that the speech of the southern mountaineers is “pure Elizabethan English” just as Shakespeare would have spoken it. Others go even further and claim that “the dialect of the Appalachian people is the oldest living English dialect, older than the speech of Shakespeare, closer to the speech of Chaucer,” apparently preserved by a brutally impoverished rural existence in the isolation of their mountain fastness, with little contact from the modern civilizing ways of outsiders.

Josiah Combs claimed that “the Southern mountaineers are the conservators of Old, Early, and Elizabethan English in the New World.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Thank you. I vaguely remembered something like this but didn’t want to pull it out without sources.

It strengthens the point I was trying to make.

If someone’s going to go hoity-toity and proclaim that British English is correct just because it’s British English, then he has to explain why the dialect spoken by (some) people there is somehow more correct than the dialect that used to be spoken there a few centuries ago–that still IS spoken elsewhere.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I, on the other hand…don’t give a rat’s ass.

That’s why there’s the “King’s English” (or, for quite some time now, the Queen’s English). Similar to Hochdeutsch in Germany, the standard.

Any my judgement of correct is not arbirtrary. OED IS the standard.

I actually enjoyed Latin…in highschool.

Good article and I pretty much agree with everything in the article except Ehrlich’s statement –

“It’s debatable whether the West has anywhere near the power to spark revolutions that Russia contends”

After researching the Maiden Massacre in Ukraine, the arms trafficking through Benghazi into Syria and the Arab Uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, I have no doubts that the West has more than enough power to spark revolutions.

I will not be surprised if Russia pulls out early from the meetings being held between the US State Department and Russia this week.

Gail Combs

The USA or at least Soros and Crew are VERY good at sparking ‘Color Revolutions’

Heck the USA is in the midst of one (the Purple Revolution) right now.

Deplorable Patriot

I’m going to disagree to an extent.

YES, it looks like the Soviet Union is being put back together – which might be the case – but, Kazakstan AND Ukraine were controlled by the Biden Syndicate, and Putin is essentially kicking them out.

One report I saw claimed that Kazakstan was taken out by 20,000 highly trained troops from a number of countries. I was going to address this in the daily tomorrow.

I have a suspicion that we’re seeing what Putin and President Trump talked about in their super secret summit a few years back come to fruition. Putin is cleaning up his own back yard, IMO.

“Kazakstan AND Ukraine were controlled by the Biden Syndicate, and Putin is essentially kicking them out.”

One of the great bits of English that are seldom taught to “native speakers” is the ordering of adjectives — https://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/order-of-adjectives.html .

It’s why we might feel uncomfortable if Darwin were described as a “pet Australian tan/orange mature medium-sized handsome” lizard, while describing him as a “handsome medium-sized mature tan/orange Australian pet” lizard rolls trippingly off the tongue.

Have you ever read Mark Twain’s “That Awful German Language”?

TheseTruths

Ohmygosh, it is hilarious!
https://faculty.georgetown.edu/jod/texts/twain.german.html

Every noun has a gender, and there is no sense or system in the distribution; so the gender of each must be learned separately and by heart. There is no other way. To do this one has to have a memory like a memorandum-book. In German, a young lady has no sex, while a turnip has. Think what overwrought reverence that shows for the turnip, and what callous disrespect for the girl. See how it looks in print–I translate this from a conversation in one of the best of the German Sunday-school books:

“Gretchen. Wilhelm, where is the turnip?

“Wilhelm. She has gone to the kitchen. 

“Gretchen. Where is the accomplished and beautiful English maiden?

Wilhelm. It has gone to the opera.”

To continue with the German genders: a tree is male, its buds are female, its leaves are neuter; horses are sexless, dogs are male, cats are female–tomcats included, of course; a person’s mouth, neck, bosom, elbows, fingers, nails, feet, and body are of the male sex, and his head is male or neuter according to the word selected to signify it, and NOT according to the sex of the individual who wears it–for in Germany all the women either male heads or sexless ones; a person’s nose, lips, shoulders, breast, hands, and toes are of the female sex; and his hair, ears, eyes, chin, legs, knees, heart, and conscience haven’t any sex at all. The inventor of the language probably got what he knew about a conscience from hearsay. 

Now, by the above dissection, the reader will see that in Germany a man may THINK he is a man, but when he comes to look into the matter closely, he is bound to have his doubts; he finds that in sober truth he is a most ridiculous mixture; and if he ends by trying to comfort himself with the thought that he can at least depend on a third of this mess as being manly and masculine, the humiliating second thought will quickly remind him that in this respect he is no better off than any woman or cow in the land. 

In the German it is true that by some oversight of the inventor of the language, a Woman is a female; but a Wife (Weib) is not–which is unfortunate. A Wife, here, has no sex; she is neuter; so, according to the grammar, a fish is HE, his scales are SHE, but a fishwife is neither. To describe a wife as sexless may be called under-description; that is bad enough, but over-description is surely worse. A German speaks of an Englishman as the ENGLÄNDER; to change the sex, he adds INN, and that stands for Englishwoman– ENGLÄNDERINN. That seems descriptive enough, but still it is not exact enough for a German; so he precedes the word with that article which indicates that the creature to follow is feminine, and writes it down thus: “die Engländerinn,”–which means “the she-Englishwoman.” I consider that that person is over-described.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Grammatical gender is this way in almost all European languages. The exceptions are English and the languages that aren’t Indo-European (Basque, Hungarian, Estonian, Finnish, Saami (Lapp)).

However, at least in most languages you can tell the gender from the ending on the noun. In German this is true only in a few lucky cases (e.g., words ending in -chen are neuter, words ending in -schaft are feminine). For example, Russian: Feminine nouns end in a or ya, neuter in -o and masculine in a consonant, most of the time.

Deplorable Patriot

Why is it hilarious?

TheseTruths

Twain’s writing style makes it funny, IMO.

In my note-book I find this entry:

July 1.–In the hospital yesterday, a word of thirteen syllables was successfully removed from a patient–a North German from near Hamburg; but as most unfortunately the surgeons had opened him in the wrong place, under the impression that he contained a panorama, he died. The sad event has cast a gloom over the whole community. 

That paragraph furnishes a text for a few remarks about one of the most curious and notable features of my subject–the length of German words. Some German words are so long that they have a perspective. Observe these examples:

Freundschaftsbezeigungen. 

Dilettantenaufdringlichkeiten. 

Stadtverordnetenversammlungen. 

These things are not words, they are alphabetical processions.

Cuppa Covfefe

Funny indeed, and many say that German is a language of rules (yikes!).

Actually it’s Engländerin… he might have been thinking of the plural, which is Engländerinnen. Of course now, there’s the “Binnen I” which seeks to solve all problems of plurals such as this with “EngländerInnen” which goes both ways, as it were, and takes the worry out of being close (to being correct).

The Transies have done them one better, so now to include those who don’t know their plumbing, it’s “Engländer*nnen” (that*s called the genderstern, gender star).

Finally, to add all the other perversions to the mix (perverbs?), there’s now the genderdopplepunkt (which we refer to as colon in English, oddly apropos), so multiple folks from England (in this example) are referred to as “Engländer:nnen”…

Hoist by their own retards, indeed…

I had heard of that, but not read it. Thanks for posting it…

Valerie Curren

never heard that phrase before

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

There are a lot of very subtle aspects to our grammar we do not have to try to teach, because everyone who speaks English natively does it the same way. Thus, there’s no push in school to correct one dialect into another. “Don’t use double negatives” is something English teachers struggle to convey, because some people do use them. But no one who grew up speaking the language gets their mass nouns versus count nouns wrong. No one has to be badgered to quit saying “I ate rices.” Yet foreign students struggle with the distinction. And of course there’s proper selection of indefinite (a/an) versus definite (the) articles–foreigners frequently get it wrong and when some foreign shitbag sends out a scam e-mail, it often shows through.

Order of adjectives is likely a similar thing.

TheseTruths

Another Wolf Moon article so full of information that I will need to read it again to take it all in.

Not only did this ancestor of Omicron cause an outbreak across the world in 2018 and 2019, that was mistaken as an 8-fold higher rate of flu across the Asia-Pacific-Africa for those years, but its genetics reveal a robust history of lab mouse serial passes and lab-edited alleles.

The idea is that a form of Omicron was released by China pre-2018, causing heavy flu stats, but no one realized that Omicron was its own entity? And the implications for today are that Omicron is “interfering” with the goals *they* had for COVID? That would be a sweet comeuppance.

I too believe that China has been experimenting with bioweapons for a long time. How do we stop this?

Well, NATO is corrupt, and Putin is corrupt.

What are the chances they’re independently corrupt, as opposed to collaboratively?

SD has some clarification about the predicted shortages:

What we have been describing is a long term supply chain crisis that will slowly unfold over a period of about a week or two, and then remain a problem over time, for a period of 6+ months.

paper products.

all of a sudden , very scant.

and dairy.

and pasta.

eggs…sporadic…prices going up.

extremely stressful trying to shop…I hate feeling like a greedy hoarder.

some of it is due to the Seasonal aspect here in south Florida with the grotesque snowbird influx grabbing everything in sight…depleting shelves…but normally the stores are prepared for that and can re-stock…

but most of this is not Seasonal…entire sections are empty…no paper towels suddenly !

that’s way weird.

and milk products are like a thing of the past.

Get over feeling “like a greedy hoarder.”

If you are buying things you and your family will USE, you are NOT hoarding.

You are STOCKING UP.

There is nothing wrong with that in any way. Many people only want to grocery shop once a month, or even less. So go for it!

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.

AMEN.

Deltacron’: New Covid variant or laboratory error?

A scientist who reported the existence of a new Covid variant that combines characteristics of Delta and Omicron has insisted his findings are accurate after experts dismissed them as the result of laboratory samples becoming contaminated.

Dr Leonidos Kostrikis, a professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, told the Cypriot channel Sigma TV that he and his colleagues have identified 25 cases of the so-called “Deltacron” variant, which has resulted in hospitalisation in 11 cases, and have submitted their data to the GISAID global database.

The announcement caused concern over the weekend after it trended on social media, prompting several experts to reject Dr Kostrikis’s claims.

“Deltacron is not real and is likely due to sequencing artefact (lab contamination of Omicron sequence fragments in a Delta specimen),” tweeted Dr Krutika Kuppalli, an infectious diseases researcher with the World Health Organisation.

“Let’s not merge names of infectious diseases and leave it to celebrity couples.”

Also responding to the scare was Dr Tom Peacock of Imperial College London.

“The Cypriot ‘Deltacron’ sequences reported by several large media outlets look to be quite clearly contamination – they do not cluster on a phylogenetic tree and have a whole Artic primer sequencing amplicon of Omicron in an otherwise Delta backbone,” the virologist tweeted.

“Delta sequences with strange mutations in amplicon 72 have been turning up for ages (for example Delta + Mu NTD insertion) however, they always show this non-monophyletic pattern and are nearly always more easily explained by this primer issue exacerbating very low-level contam.”

Dr Boghuma Kabisen Titanji, a global health expert, also tweeted that Deltacron was most likely the result of sample contamination, but did add: “With transmission levels of SARSCoV2 at all time highs globally, it is likely that recombination is occurring and may rise to levels that we start picking up these events more frequently. Will this lead to more concerning variants? That is possible but nobody knows.”
