Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

Wait…, what?

Yes, you read correctly.

Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

First of all, I guess I owe China an apology. 

This wasn’t the “China Virus,” it was a “Swamp Virus,” a Democrat virus, created with the funding of the U.S. Government “Deep State” (The Swamp), with the help of the Chinese Wuhan Lab, and orchestrated by a swamp monster in sheep’s clothing, none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci!!!

Let’s just take a moment to let that sink in.

…,

…,

…,

Now you know how it feels to played for a fool.

It doesn’t feel good does it?

Let me just say it again…,

THIS WASN’T THE “CHINA VIRUS,” IT WAS A “SWAMP VIRUS,” A DEMOCRAT VIRUS, CREATED WITH THE FUNDING OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT “DEEP STATE” (THE SWAMP), WITH THE HELP OF THE CHINESE WUHAN LAB, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

AGAIN…, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

Again, let’s just take a moment to let that all sink in.

…,

…,

…,

According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News, “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen, and why isn’t there a criminal investigation?”

An excellent question, Tucker, but we all know only republicans get investigated!

What’s wrong with you?!

What we all want to hear about is how “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen!” 

But first…,

“How do we assess the Biden administration’s response to COVID? Well, here’s one marker: it tells you pretty much everything that the White House that is supposedly so committed to science chose as its head COVID coordinator a man with no background at all in science or medicine. His name is Jeffrey Zients.”

“Zients ran Joe Biden’s presidential transition team, that’s his qualification. He’s a former management consultant from Bain [a management consulting company], who sat on the board of Facebook.”

Jeffrey Zients is a political operative. That’s who’s overseeing COVID response for Joe Biden. The good news is because Zients isn’t even close to being an actual scientist, he doesn’t talk like one. Occasionally he says things whose significance the rest of us can clearly understand. Read what Zients said on CNN, and it becomes very clear how the White House understands this pandemic.”

“JEFFREY ZIENTS: And the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter. Let’s keep up our guard. Let’s follow the CDC guidance. And the CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.”

“There it is. ‘The CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.’ A sentence like that raises so many questions, it’s hard to know where to start. How about here: If the vaccines work, why are any vaccinated people wearing masks anywhere, ever? Seriously. Jeffrey Zients should be required to explain that, slowly and with numbers, so the rest of us who didn’t serve on the board of Facebook can understand. No one’s asked him to explain that, of course, so he hasn’t. Nor has anyone asked Zients just how effective masks are at preventing the spread of COVID.”

“Our public health authorities act as though masks are absolutely critical. But are they absolutely critical? Where are the serious studies that prove that? Do they exist? If they do exist, is there a reason they’re being hidden from us? And, finally, when did masklessness become a privilege? For thousands of years, until 12 months ago, masklessness was the global status quo. Virtually everyone on earth lived without masks. That wasn’t considered weird. Masks were weird. They were unhealthy and menacing.”

“Yet Jeffrey Zients has just informed us that things have changed. Going forward, not wearing a mask, even after you’ve been vaccinated, is ‘a privilege’ — a Scooby snack, a gold star, a pat on the head — that may or may not be granted to you exclusively by the Democratic Party, on the basis of no science, but purely because they’re in charge and you’re not. That’s called public health. It’s absolutely critical to the existence of our species that you comply with it reflexively, without asking questions or thinking about it. This will all continue, Zients explained, ‘across time.’”

“What does that mean, exactly? How long will this terrifyingly irrational exercise continue? For the answer to that question, we go to a man even more partisan than Jeffrey Zients. The nation’s most highly credentialed political operative, Tony Fauci, let us know that, actually, this mask thing is never going to end.”

“CHUCK TODD, NBC: But is the mask going to be something we have with us in a seasonal aspect?”

“DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: You know, that’s quite possible. I think people have gotten used to the fact that wearing masks, clearly, if you look at the data, diminishes respiratory diseases…So it is conceivable that as we go on a year or two or more from now, that during certain seasonal periods when you have respiratory-borne viruses like the flu, people might actually elect to wear masks to diminish the likelihood that you’ll be spreading these respiratory-borne diseases.”

‘“A year or two or more from now.’ In other words, never — you’re never taking off the mask. Get ready for a lifetime of filthy wet cotton covering your mouth, reduced oxygen flow to your brain, and a world where every stranger looks the same because no one has a face. When Kamala Harris and her husband kissed the other day while wearing masks, they were giving you a preview of your daughter’s wedding. In a masked world, human beings never really touch each other. Is that public health? No, it’s not public health. It’s a kind of punishment. Tony Fauci is punishing the country — you, us, everyone. The question is: why is he doing that? You’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysteria is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic?”

Okay…, now we’re getting to the good stuff (bad stuff), really!

“What do we mean by that? We can’t recommend more strongly a new piece by Nicholas Wade, who for more than 50 years has been one of the preeminent science writers in the world. For 30 years, Nicholas Wade worked for the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times. It ran on Medium [an on-line publishing company]. And the piece explains where the virus almost certainly came from. In it, Wade makes it clear that, more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Say again?

“…more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please continue.  

“Wade lays out a nearly insurmountable amount of evidence that this virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Central China.”

He did use the term “insurmountable amount of evidence.”

“We’ve raised this possibility from the early days of the pandemic. But this piece all but proves it. At the time the outbreak began last fall, the Wuhan lab was conducting experiments on how to make bat viruses infectious to human beings. Those experiments were funded by American tax dollars, the funding for those experiments was approved and directed by Tony Fauci in Washington. It’s hard to believe that, but it’s true, and the piece lays it out.”

The question that immediately comes to mind is, why would we want to make bat viruses infectious to human beings in the first place?  Don’t we have enough infectious diseases to deal with?

Secondly, why would America be funding this via a Chinese Lab?

Was Iran and North Korea too busy developing nukes to get in on this?

“Many of the Wuhan experiments fell under the direction of a Chinese researcher Shi Zheng-li. Known as the ‘bat lady,’ she was China’s leading expert on bat-born viruses. Her job was genetically engineering coronaviruses so that they [could] infect human beings, and do so as easily as possible.”

Again…, why?

“The work, Wade notes, involved, ‘doing gain-of-function experiments designed to make coronaviruses infect human cells.’”

“Why was this research going on? You’ll have to ask the scientist who did it.”

You could also ask Anthony Fauci.

But the democrats aren’t going to bring him before Congress, now, and the liberal propaganda fake news media will do their part in hiding the truth.

“But the facts remain, these were some of the most dangerous experiments ever conducted by mankind. And yet we know that China wasn’t taking the necessary safety precautions. And we should not be surprised by that. Several years ago, U.S. diplomatic cables warned about lax standards at the Wuhan Lab. The Wuhan facility was classified as a ‘bio-safety-level two laboratory.’ What does that mean? According to Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers, that’s approximately the same level of safety that you would find in a dentist’s office in America.”

“So that lab, conducting research on the coronavirus, and how to make it transmissible to human beings, resulted almost certainly in infecting a lab researcher and spread from there. The first coronavirus patients didn’t come from the so-called wet market as we heard. That was a lie. The first patients of the coronavirus were employees at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

“Once again, why would the Wuhan lab be conducting experiments like that in the first place? Well, we know that Tony Fauci had authorized payment for the research. For five years — from 2014 to 2019 — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Fauci runs, and has for decades, pumped money to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance.” 

“The EcoHealth Alliance, run by a man called Dr. Peter Daszak, contracted with Dr. Shi to conduct gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.”

“Just before the pandemic became public knowledge — on December 9, 2019 —  Peter Daszak sat for an interview that was streamed online. In that interview, he bragged about how easy it is to manipulate coronaviruses in lab experiments.”

“PETER DASZAK: Coronavirus is a pretty good… You can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily. It’s spike protein, Spike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus, zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, build the protein. And we worked with Ralph Barrack at UNC to do this.  Insert into a backbone of another virus and then do some work in the lab.”

“Just days after he said that, it became clear that this new version of coronavirus, this novel coronavirus, what we now call COVID-19, was running rampant through Wuhan then China then the world. Since the pandemic began, Peter Daszak, not surprisingly, has appeared on virtually every media platform available to him to deny, in the most strenuous and dismissive terms, that the Wuhan lab could not be in any way linked to the outbreak, since he has very personal motives for claiming that. ‘The idea that this virus escaped from a lab is just pure baloney,’ he said last year. But that’s a lie. It’s not pure baloney.”

“A lot of smart people knew that right away. One of those people is Alina Chan, a molecular biologist at the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT. She bravely wrote a paper about how the coronavirus’s genome hadn’t changed much over time, and that was odd because that genome had gone through trillions of replications. According to Chan, that fact implied that the virus was designed for human-to-human transmission from the outset.”

“Millions of people have died of COVID-19, so it’s not a matter of score-settling or blame-assignment to figure out where it came from.”

“If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started. And so, the World Health Organization, said it would get to the bottom of it. The World Health Organization, of course, is beholden to China. And so, it tried to hide the basic facts of the origins of this pandemic. And to hide those facts, WHO appointed none other than Peter Daszak as the only America-based representative on the investigative team looking into where the virus came from. In what turned out to be a sham report, that team concluded it’s ‘extremely unlikely’ the virus came from the Wuhan lab. That’s not true.”

“The WHO’s investigation into the origins of the virus was fraudulent, and that matters to public health globally. But one thing you’ll notice is that Tony Fauci did not say that. Why? Because once again, he’s implicated in it, personally.”

“The gain-of-function research that Peter Daszak was bragging about in the video we just showed you had, in fact, been banned explicitly by the U.S. government. There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on in the Wuhan lab, to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the feds halt its funding to the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question, and Nicholas Wade looked into it.”

“Here’s what he found: ‘Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on p.2 of the moratorium document states that “An exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the USG funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.”’”

“And that’s exactly the loophole that was exploited.”

“Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci —  possibly along with Francis Collins, the director of the NIH — invoked that special exception in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab, and the deadly experiments that were going on there. The experiments that clearly went so wrong.”

“According to Richard Ebright, ‘Unfortunately, the NIAID Director [Fauci] and the NIH Director exploited this loophole to issue exemptions to projects subject to the pause – preposterously asserting the exempted research was “‘urgently necessary to protect public health or national security — thereby nullifying the pause.”’”

The “national security,” of course, was making sure Donald Trump didn’t get re-elected.

“This wouldn’t have happened if Tony Fauci didn’t allow it to happen. That is clear.”

“It’s an amazing story.”

“It is a shocking story.”

Yes, it is.

“In a functional country [a fair country], there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”

I think we can all figure out the answer to that one.

Former White House trade adviser, Peter Navarro, has also accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of being “the “father of COVID-19, while adding he thinks that, “Fauci is a sociopath and a liar.”

Even the Nazi’s “Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele, wasn’t responsible for as many deaths as our own Dr. Fauci apparently is.

AND THIS IS THE GUY WHO HAS BEEN LECTURING US, FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, ABOUT WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO REGARDING OUR SAFETY, AS IT PERTAINS TO THE VIRUS?!

DOES HE HAVE NO CONSCIENCE?

DOES HE HAVE NO SHAME?

THE ANSWER TO THOSE QUESTIONS ARE “NO,” OBVIOUSLY.

IT JUST MAKES YOU WANT TO THROW UP, DOESN’T IT?

Until Fauci is made to answer all of these allegations, I really don’t want to hear another word come out of his disgusting little mouth.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Let’s review the “COVID-19 stupidness.”

“Stupid is as stupid does,” they say.

And there’s a whole lot of stupidness floating around these days.

Let’s take a look at the “COVID-19 stupidness” we are still forced to put up with.

Number one revolves around getting vaccinated.

Getting vaccinated was hailed as the cure all by the powers that be…, but now they say we still have to wear masks and social distance, anyway, even after receiving the vaccine.

Dr. Fuaci has been quoted as saying he sees us having to continue to wear masks through 2022!

C’mon, Fauci! Isn’t there any common sense associated with your “science” at all?   

And how many masks do we have to wear?

One mask was fine for close a year!

Now you say two masks, or even three masks would be better?!  

Hello, hello, “science” calling…, and “science” is wondering why you’re not answering?     

Next would have to be the airline industry.

They require passengers to social distance at every step prior to boarding the plane, then they cram us in there like sardines.

So much for the social distancing.

Does that make any sense?

Some states continue to keep their public schools closed, even though schools in other countries, and private schools here in America, have demonstrated schools can operate normally without any negative effects.  Not to mention CDC recommendations allow for schools to reopen, with proper safety considerations.

What happened to “following the science?”

Some states have still not allowed small businesses to open, but the big corporate stores, like Walmart, Home Depot, etc. are allowed to operate normally.

Is there some secret these big chain stores need to share with the small businesses so they can open too?

Then we have the situation at our southern border.

Many of these illegal immigrants are being released into our country even though they have tested positive for the virus, and many more are being released into the country without even being tested.

Additionally, untested immigrants and immigrant children are being jammed into holding facilities, without any concern for social distancing. 

But Joe says our schools can’t open and that we’ll be lucky to be able to celebrate Independence Day with our families?

Give us a break with your hypocritic polices, Illegimate Joe!  

The latest stupidness has the great and powerful “scientist,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying the CDC may be updating its social distancing recommendations to 3 foot spacing, since recent tests show there isn’t really much difference between distancing of 3 or 6 feet.

What?!!!

You’re kidding us, right?!

It’s been a year now, and 6 feet distancing has been the standard.

And now, after a whole year, you’re saying 3 feet is OK?!

So, where did the whole 6 feet thing come from in the first place? 

Either it’s proven science or it’s not.

Fool us once, shame on you, Fauci…, fool us twice, three times, four time, five times…, shame on the fools who keep listening to you!

Perhaps the most egregious practice, and most cruel practice, in my opinion, is disallowing visitors into hospitals, nursing homes, etc.

If masks really work, why can’t visitors just wear a mask?

If masks don’t really work (I’m going with this option), why can’t they come up with some other breathing apparatus, or some kind of suit, a visitor could wear to make their visit safe?

Forcing people to recover alone, and in many cases die alone, without having the chance to see their loved ones, should not have even been an option. This practice is just plain evil.  There’s no other word for it.

If the person is dying already, what difference does it make if they get the virus?

I can’t believe that this policy has been allowed to stand this long.

Overall, it seems many people in this country (democrats mostly) have lost any semblance of common sense.

The cure cannot be worse than the problem.

Wake up America!

Joe’s illegitimate…, and he’s a liar too!

Let’s take a look into Joe’s primetime revisionist history address!  

Caitlin McFall of Fox News reports, “In his first primetime address to the nation Thursday night, President Biden lobbed barely concealed criticism at former President Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.”

Let’s take a listen…, this oughta be good!

‘“A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked, denials for days, weeks then months — that led to more deaths, more infections, more stress, and more loneliness,’ the president said. ‘We lost faith in whether our government and our democracy can deliver on really hard things for the American people.’”

Oh, really?

So, that’s how you remember it, Joe?

I seem to remember the circumstances differently.

I remember Nancy Pelosi downplaying the virus and inviting people to get out and visit Chinatown (you can’t make this stuff up) in her wonderful city of San Francisco.

Then we had New York’s Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, saying, “If you’re not sick, you should be going about your life,” while encouraging people to patronize restaurants in the city.

Don’t you recall that, Joe?

Let’s go back to March 12 of 2020, a year ago, and see what Tristan Justice of The Federalist, an on-line magazine, had to say.  

“Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden complained Thursday about President Donald Trump calling the Wuhan coronavirus ‘a foreign virus’ in Wednesday’s Oval Office address.”

Well, wasn’t it?

Just sayin’.

‘“Labeling COVID-19 a foreign virus does not displace the accountability for the misjudgements that have taken place so far by the Trump administration,’ Biden said. ‘The [Wuhan] coronavirus does not discriminate based on national origin, race, gender, or zip code.’”

Exactly what “misjudgements,” Joe?

“In Wednesday night’s primetime White House address announcing new travel restrictions to Europe, Trump pointed out that the novel coronavirus wreaking havoc on global public health and stock markets around the world began in China, accurately referring to it as a ‘foreign virus.’”

Which it is.

“Many on the left, however, have been quick to decry the label as ‘racist’ and ‘xenophobic,’ although it’s common practice to identify a new disease with the site of its first outbreak, such as the West Nile virus and Spanish Flu.”

So, “the left” was really more concerned the verbal semantics than with the virus itself.  

“In this case, however, it is even more important to identify the new coronavirus with where it originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, as the Chinese government attempted to cover up warnings and brushed off the threat of its severity, giving rise to what the World Health Organization has now declared a global pandemic.”

“On Thursday, Biden also criticized the administration’s decision to implement a near-total European travel ban recommended by White House public health advisors, with an exception for the United Kingdom.”

‘“Banning all travel from Europe or any other part of the world may slow it, but…it will not stop it,’ Biden warned.”

So, if Biden had been president, he wouldn’t have banned travel to and from Europe?

“In January, Biden also criticized as ‘xenophobic’ the administration’s travel ban to China as the outbreak began to worsen, although it was instrumental in preventing an outbreak in the United States much sooner.”

‘“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia,’ Biden said during an Iowa campaign event.”

So, if Biden had been president at the time, he wouldn’t have even banned travel to and from China?  

“In response to Biden’s Thursday press conference, the Trump campaign put out a statement reminding the public of Biden’s opposition to the China travel ban.”

‘“Just weeks ago, he [Biden] was openly critical of President Trump’s early move to restrict travel from China to the United States in response to the coronavirus – a decision which medical experts agree helped impede the spread of the virus to this country,’ Trump Communications Director Tim Murtaugh said. ‘President Trump acted early and decisively and has put the United States on stronger footing than other nations.’”

So, it really appears the only “misjudgements” that were made early on were by you and your democrat friend, Joe, not President Trump.

McFall continues by saying, “Without ever mentioning Trump by name, Biden highlighted issues over which his predecessor has been criticized, like the importance of wearing a mask and ‘listening to the science’ in deciding how to best reopen the economy.”

So, you claim you’re “listening to the science” regarding the reopening of schools?

Interesting.   

‘“A mask, the easiest thing to do to save lives, sometimes it divides us, states pit it against one another instead of working with each other,’ Biden noted, nodding to the recent decision by Republican-led states to lift coronavirus restrictions, including mask mandates.”

“Biden encouraged Americans to listen to the advice issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in continuing to wear masks ‘to save lives.’”

“Trump’s refusal to wear a mask until several months into the pandemic was an issue Biden was critical of throughout the presidential race.”

“Biden called Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘one of the most distinguished and trusted voices in the world.’ The comment was a contrast to those made by Trump, who was sometimes a sharp critic of Fauci, the top doctor on his White House Coronavirus Task Force.”

Please recall that, initially, on March 8, 2020, Dr. Fauci said, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”

Maybe that’s why President Trump didn’t feel the need to wear a mask at the time?

He was only “following the science” at the time, and Dr. Fauci’s recommendations.

“Biden suggested Americans were not getting honesty from Trump, reflecting on a visit he made to a small business owner in Philadelphia last summer.”

‘“Looking me right in the eye, she said, “I just want the truth,”’ he said, describing what the business owner said she needed most to help her through the pandemic.”

‘“My fellow Americans, you’re owed nothing less than the truth,’ Biden added.”

Well, then why aren’t you giving us the truth, Joe?

“He noted that when he entered office, only 8 percent of people age 65 and up had received their first vaccine shot, contrasting that with the numbers who have gotten the vaccine under his presidency.”

Could it be because, “The vaccines had only recently been made available when Biden took office Jan. 20?”

“But defenders of President Trump have noted that Operation Warp Speed — the Trump administration’s effort to help develop coronavirus vaccines — helped produced results in less than a year, a timeframe considered fast for vaccine development.”

Not just considered “fast,” but considered impossible by many doctors and experts throughout 2020.

According to Sandy Cohen for UCLA Health [UCLA Health is among the most comprehensive and advanced health care systems in the world, comprised of multiple hospitals and medical centers in the Los Angeles area], in December of 2020, “The COVID-19 vaccines coming soon to the United States and already approved in the U.K. and Canada are the fastest vaccines ever created.”

“In a remarkable achievement of medical science, we’ve gone from identifying a new pathogen — the novel coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2 — to discovering an immune response against it to developing and testing a safe and effective vaccine for it in less than 12 months.”

“Previously, the fastest vaccine to go from development to deployment was the mumps vaccine in the 1960s, which took about four years.”

‘“This is shattering that record,’ says Otto Yang, MD, an infectious disease specialist at UCLA Health. ‘This is really an amazing achievement.’”

So, why hasn’t the “fake news,” any of the democrats, or “President” Biden given any credit at all to former President Trump for facilitating this remarkable achievement?

‘“President Biden’s plan is to rely on the work that has already been done by Operation Warp Speed,’ House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., wrote on Twitter on Thursday night. ‘That’s why only 9% of his “relief” bill went to defeating the virus.’”

‘“What American needs now is to fully reopen our economy and our classrooms,’ McCarthy added.”

Biden also directed states to make all adults eligible for vaccines by May 1, 2021.

So, adults weren’t eligible to get the vaccines already?

I don’t get it.   

“[Former President] Trump could not be immediately reached by Fox News for comment.”

That’s okay…, I think we can all imagine what he would have said, anyway.

In addition, Li Cohen of CBS News reports that, “While President Biden’s first prime-time address was largely optimistic regarding the country’s plan for tackling coronavirus, Mr. Biden also used his time at the podium to condemn the surge in violence that Asian Americans have experienced over the past year.”

‘“Too often, we’ve turned against one another,’ the president said. ‘Vicious hate crimes against Asian Americans, who have been attacked, harassed, blamed and scapegoated.’”

“While hate crimes fell overall by 7% in 2020, a new report published this week found that Asian Americans experienced a 150% surge in attacks. In July 2020, there were more than 2,100 anti-Asian American hate incidents that were directly related to the pandemic.”

A White House official had confirmed to CBS News’ Weijia Jiang ahead of the speech that the president would address these attacks, saying his decision to do so was deliberate and that his message would be ‘very forceful.’”

No one is going to argue that any these harassment incidents are okay.

So, along those lines, it is a good thing that President Biden brought this to everyone’s attention.

I’m not afraid to give credit where credit is due…, unlike Mr. Biden, here.

My only question is, why has this been kept such a secret, for so long?

I, literally, cannot recall hearing anything about this, not one time, over the last year.

Our mainstream news media, who are usually so eager to jump on these types of race-based attacks, obviously felt that none of this was newsworthy.

Why would that be?

Americans of Asian descent must not have fit their (the democrats) narrative for one reason or another.  

We’ll have to keep an eye on this and see how the democrats, and the “fake news” choose to spin this one.

Bloody hell?! The UK becomes the first country to roll out Covid-19 vaccine!

And the hapless FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States, has only said it has “scheduled a meeting” of its “outside advisory panel” to discuss Pfizer and BioNTech’s application for emergency use authorization for a coronavirus vaccine for December 10.

No rush here…, just go on ahead and takes your sweet time!

The FDA in the United States obviously sees no sense of urgency regarding this matter.

And what the hell is an “outside advisory panel?”

The FDA has an annual budget of $6 billion, and they don’t have the resources within their own administration to handle this?  

Anyway, according to Emma Reynolds, Stephanie Halasz, Frederik Pleitgen and Lindsay Isaac for CNN, “The United Kingdom has become the first Western nation to approve a Covid-19 vaccine, a landmark moment in the coronavirus pandemic that paves the way for the first doses to be rolled out across the country next week.”

Congratulations to the United Kingdom for moving quickly on this.

Long live the Queen!

‘“Help is on the way,’ Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced Wednesday morning, after UK regulators granted emergency authorization for a vaccine made by US pharma giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech.”

“A final analysis of the Phase 3 trial of Pfizer’s vaccine shows it was 95% effective in preventing infections, even in older adults, and caused no serious safety concerns, the company said last month.”

“The announcement means the UK has vaulted past the United States and European Union in the race to approve a vaccine, months into a pandemic that has killed almost 1.5 million people worldwide.”

And I just have to say again, thanks China!

And thanks for nothing FDA!

The American people all realize you have other more important things to do, but…

‘“We believe it is really the start of the end of the pandemic,’ BioNTech CEO Ugur Sahin told CNN in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla hailed the emergency authorization as ‘a historic moment in the fight against Covid-19.’”

“The UK has ordered 40 million doses of the vaccine — enough to vaccinate 20 million people. Hancock told the BBC (British Broadcasting Company) that an initial 800,000 doses would be delivered from Pfizer’s facilities in Belgium to the UK next week, and ‘many millions’ more before the end of the year.”

In the meantime, the FDA in the United States has “scheduled a meeting” of its “outside advisory panel” to discuss Pfizer and BioNTech’s application for emergency use authorization for a coronavirus vaccine for December 10.

“Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the news ‘fantastic’ in a tweet, adding that ‘it’s the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get the economy moving again.’”

“The UK health department said the approval ‘follows months of rigorous clinical trials and a thorough analysis of the data’ by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which had ‘concluded that the vaccine has met its strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness.’”

The same data that has been available to our own FDA.

MHRA 1, FDA 0. 

“MHRA chief Dr. June Raine insisted that ‘no corners have been cut’ during a news conference Wednesday. Raine said the clinical trials were ‘overlapping’ to progress the process faster. ‘Separate teams have been working in parallel to deliver this review,’ she added.”

What a novel concept!

Do you see what they’re doing over there in the UK, FDA?

“The news of the UK authorization could also cause a bit of a stir in the United States. Earlier this week, President Donald Trump privately demanded to know why the Food and Drug Administration hadn’t granted emergency use for Pfizer’s vaccine yet?”

Good question, Mr. President?

A question that our fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media, I’m sure, has not been too eager to pick-up.  

“BioNTech and Pfizer submitted their vaccine candidate to the FDA in mid-November.”

And again, in the good old USA, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) continues to drag their feet while the China virus pandemic continues to take its toll of American lives on a daily basis.

The FDA sees the China virus as such an urgent threat that they all took four days off around the Thanksgiving holiday!

C’mon, really?!

Kaitlan Collins, for CNN, reports that, “White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is scheduled to meet with Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn in the West Wing Tuesday, as President Donald Trump has privately demanded to know why the agency hasn’t granted emergency use for Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine yet, according to two sources.”

“Two sources?!” That may be a new record for CNN!  Usually one anonymous source, or even one fictitious anonymous source, is plenty to run with a story!  

Can I really help but be cynical of CNN’s reporting?

The correct answer to that is “no,” by the way. 

“Meadows summed [I believe she means ‘summoned.’] Hahn for a progress update over the weekend. Hahn requested their meeting happen over the phone, one source said, but was told by the White House that the chief of staff preferred to meet in person. That appears to have led to concern within the FDA that the meeting could become tense, leading Hahn to issue a statement to Axios Monday night defending the FDA’s timeline.”

Oh my gosh, a tense meeting!

Whatever shall he do?

‘“Let me be clear — our career scientists have to make the decision and they will take the time that’s needed to make the right call on this important decision,’ Hahn said in the statement.”

Remember…, “it’s all about the science!”

When in doubt or in question, throw a scientist at them!

“A person familiar with the meeting tells CNN that Hahn is prepared to explain to the President’s team that the decision about granting the emergency use authorization is not up to him. The review is conducted by career scientists and not a decision he makes on his own.”

Ha!

So, Mr. Hahn is letting the press (the propaganda wing for the liberals and the ‘deep state’) exactly what he plans on saying to the Chief of Staff, presumably to deflect any level of accountability away from himself.

“Pfizer applied for the emergency use authorization November 20. Emergency use authorization from the FDA is not the same as full approval but allows products to be used under particular circumstances before all the evidence is available for approval, according to previous CNN reporting. The FDA has previously said it has scheduled a meeting of its outside advisory panel to discuss Pfizer and BioNTech’s application for emergency use authorization for a coronavirus vaccine for December 10.”

“But [President] Trump has become privately frustrated over how long the process is taking, sources told CNN. He has proudly and publicly admitted to pressuring the FDA to move faster.”

The only people who shouldn’t be frustrated are the Chinese Communist Party, and their friends, the American democrat leadership.

“Amid complaints from The President that the FDA is working too slowly, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Fox News Tuesday that, ‘We want a safe vaccine, absolutely. We also want a fast one because lives are at stake and a vaccine by the end of the year is key and paramount.’”

Well stated, Ms. McEnany.

“It’s not clear how the meeting between Meadows and Hahn will go until it takes place,” CNN reported.

Really?

You don’t say.

And this what they call “journalism” these days?

“A sense of distrust between Trump’s closest advisers and career scientists [Translation: Career ‘deep state” liberal scientists.] on the FDA already existed before the FDA issued public statements about the meeting Monday night.”

That, I believe, should go without saying.

‘“The FDA has been preparing for the review of EUAs for Covid-19 vaccines for several months and stands ready to do so as soon as an EUA request is submitted,’ Hahn said in a statement shortly after Pfizer applied for emergency use authorization for the vaccine in late November. ‘While we cannot predict how long the FDA’s review will take, the FDA will review the request as expeditiously as possible, while still doing so in a thorough and science-based manner, so that we can help make available a vaccine that the American people deserve as soon as possible.’”

Just shut up and approve the vaccine for the American people already, Hahn.

The time for bureaucratic paper shuffling an establishment political double-speak is over.

Following the Science?

For how long and how many times have we heard the liberals decry, “We have to follow the Science?”

Well, apparently, “following the Science” is only a popular liberal catch phrase which is trotted out when it suits their intentions and their politics.

Democrats (blue state governors in particular) have used the China virus as a means to impose a wide range of impositions on our Constitutional freedoms in the name of safety.  

Some based on “following the Science,” and some not so much.  

Usually only when it was politically convenient.

Dr. Richard Besser, for Fox News, says that, “Despite coronavirus, science is NOT telling us to close schools.”

But how could that be?!

We MUST “follow the Science,” right?!

“Sound science, like the coronavirus itself, is apolitical. Most everything else this year — including decisions on whether to close schools — is not.”

I think if we’ve learned anything these last four years, it’s that nothing is apolitical anymore.

Nothing.

“As the pandemic enters its deadliest phase to date, government leaders and school districts are having to make extraordinarily difficult decisions about whether to continue in-person learning amid record communitywide surges in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Excuse me, but these aren’t “extraordinarily difficult decisions” at all.

The Teachers’ Union has made those decisions for our illustrious political “leaders.”  

“New York City’s decision to close schools indefinitely, and the decision in my home state of New Jersey to allow school districts to keep them open, offers a stark contrast in how the two states with the highest death rates for COVID-19 are managing this crisis.”

“As a pediatrician and a parent, I understand the fear, confusion, and even anger that parents and caregivers face today as policymakers grapple with school decisions.”

Can’t you just envision those policymakers “grappling” with those school decisions into the wee hours of the morning?!

“We know that being in the classroom benefits children socially, emotionally and academically.”

Oh, yeah…, so, what’s the problem?

Isn’t it all about the kids?

Of course it’s not.

Huge numbers of these kids have been thrown out with the trash by these supposed caring liberals.

Many of these kids depend on school for at least one or two decent meals each day.

“On the other hand, virtual learning can be a sound option — and when transmission rates rise to unsafe levels, a necessary one — if a student has a computer, a good Internet connection, a quiet workspace, and no special learning needs. For millions of families without these luxuries, however, it’s an unworkable burden and educational disadvantage that many children could bear for a lifetime.”

Ya…, “It’s an unworkable burden and educational disadvantage that many children could bear for a lifetime,” but it’s a sacrifice the liberals and the Teachers’ unions are willing to bear for them on their behalf.  

“From a health perspective, it appears that most children fare well if infected, but they can still spread the coronavirus to higher-risk people in their homes, communities and yes, schools. But when schools have the necessary resources and follow strict protocols, in-person learning has worked remarkably well without accelerating community spread.”

Not according to the teachers, apparently.

“Knowing this, we should do all we can to keep kids in school by providing the funds for proper staffing, equipment, protective gear and ventilation systems. Without these supports, we cannot expect schools to remain open.”

Ok, there we go…, we just need to provide more funding.

We should all know by now that it’s always about the money.

The current CDC Director, Robert R. Redfield, says, “Schools are among the safest places kids can be.”

I guess he isn’t considered to have anything to do with “Science.”

“Achievement gaps could be exacerbated when students are out of school, placing yet another burden on children of color.”

“However, the science and data now tell us a much more nuanced story, and we must adapt as new information arrives. That is the fundamental value of rapid learning during a crisis. With differing approaches, schools have shown that safe in-person learning is possible.”

“That’s why New York City’s decision last week to close schools seems to be a case of following a rigid plan written before we knew schools could remain open safely. The city’s test-positive threshold of 3% — established well before the school year began — has been eclipsed, triggering closures. Yet a mere 0.23% of students in the city’s public schools have tested positive. In fact, New York schools have been a pandemic success story.”

“Governors nationwide are under pressure to follow New York’s lead and close schools, no matter what the data shows. With nearly 200,000 cases a day being reported in the U.S., some of those cases will undoubtedly be teachers, students and staff.”

Why would governors nationwide be under any kind of pressure to follow New York’s lead?

The state of New York, New York City, Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio have the worst COVID record of any state in the nation.

So, “the Pressure” is on other governors to follow their political lead, not their successful dealing with the virus lead.

Just so we’re clear about that.  

“However, decisions on school closures should be driven by data on transmission linked to schools and not on anecdotes or outdated metrics. Public pressure, I fear, is going to make it increasingly difficult in the weeks ahead for governors to stick to the science-based guidance on school closures.”

“Science-based guidance?”

And “public pressure” has no effect on these slimy democrats anymore.

Their friends, the fake news, liberal propaganda, media will just ignore and spin “the pressure” whichever way they want.   

“In the spring, New Jersey was among the hardest hit per capita by COVID-19, with the nation’s highest death rate. But this fall, New Jersey schools have not been the problem. The state’s governor, Phil Murphy, issued a joint statement with six other Northeast governors last week that said in part: ‘In-person learning is the best possible scenario for children, especially those with special needs and from low-income families.’”

“That’s the crux of why we need to do all we can to keep children in schools. The pandemic has disproportionately impacted Black, Latino and Native American communities with dramatically higher rates of infections, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Where is Black Lives Matter on this issue?

Where are any of the democrats on this issue?

Oh, I forgot…, the election is over, so the democrats can go back to ignoring any of the issues affecting the Black, Latino and Native American communities. 

Just sayin’.  

“Because of the inequitable way schools are funded in much of America, (And whose fault is that?) achievement gaps could be exacerbated when students are out of school, placing yet another burden on children of color at the very moment when our nation is forging a new path forward based on racial equity and justice.”

“We know, too, that education is just one facet of what our schools provide. Many families — especially those with parents working full-time, one-parent households, and low-income households — also rely on schools for healthy meals, technology support, and before- and after-hours child care.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the perversion of our national priorities. We need to treat teachers and school staff like the indispensable front-line workers they are and support them as such.”

I think we are, aren’t we?

The teachers appear to be the ones who aren’t comfortable being front-line workers.

Yes, “The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the perversion of our national priorities,” but the “perversions” are much more far reaching than the good doctor understands, or is willing to acknowledge.

“At the same time, we must reject the false choice that we either sacrifice teachers or do harm to our children. In the next critical months, we must come together and follow the science so that the greatest public health crisis in a century doesn’t also become an educational crisis.”

Uh…, the “educational crisis” is already here, and has been here for quite a while already.

Governor “Fredo” Cuomo…, I mean Governor Andrew Cuomo, of New York, would rather see the body count rise than a COVID vaccine under President Trump.

“The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan,” Cuomo told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America.

According to the New York Post Editorial Board, ‘“We can’t let this vaccine plan go forward the way Trump is planning it,’ Cuomo said. ‘We need to fix it or stop it before it does damage.’”

“Damage?”

What kind of “damage?”  

“Cuomo says Trump vaccination plan is ‘flawed,’ and ‘learns nothing from the past.”

Okay, Fredo…, I doubt you have any understanding of The President’s plan, in this regard.

And, what does “learns nothing from the past” mean?

The “past” what?

Your whole perspective and intent is the only thing that’s “flawed” here, Fredo!    

“It’s probably the lowest thing Governor Andrew Cuomo has ever done, and that’s saying something.”

Really, it’s not.

It’s not even close…, but go on.

“On Monday morning, when everyone else was celebrating the spectacular news that Pfizer’s vaccine for COVID-19 looks 90 percent effective, Cuomo, as is typical, reverted to politics.”

“First, he let people die in nursing homes because of his ineptitude.”

Excuse me, but it wasn’t “ineptitude.”

It was by design.

It was imperative to get the COVID-19 death numbers elevated at the time to add to their negative narrative regarding The President’s response to the China virus.

We were constantly being reminded how many people had died from the virus, when in reality the real number was only a fraction of the number we were constantly bombarded with.

How many times during the vice-presidential debate did “cackling Kamala” feel it was necessary to remind us that “over 200,000 people have died from the virus?”

Five times?

Ten times?

More?

In any regard, it was obvious that this was a talking point the democrats valued quite highly…, whether it was really accurate or not.   

“Now Cuomo wants the body count to keep climbing because God forbid President Trump oversees a vaccine effort.”

Actually, it has to do with governmental control now, and not President Trump any longer.

‘“What on earth is Governor Cuomo talking about?’ Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) rightly said in a statement. ‘This is great news and everyone — Republicans and Democrats and apolitical folks — should all be jointly thrilled about the possibility of an effective vaccine.’”

The first mistake you’re making Senator Sasse is that you’re assuming we’re talking about a normal human being here…, when we’re not.  We’re talking about a deranged, power hungry, psycho.

‘“After this nasty virus has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and put millions out of work, it is beyond disgusting that Governor Cuomo would use a glimmer of hope for another worn-out ‘Trump is bad’ talking point. When we get a vaccine, we’re going to need all hands-on deck distributing it as fast as possible — shamelessly politicizing this is dangerous and stupid.’”

I’d lean more towards evil, but, yes, “stupid” and “dangerous” as well.   

“Thank goodness it’s not up to Cuomo about how the nation proceeds. He messed up in New York, he can’t be allowed to fail nationally. Hopefully this puts to rest any idea of Cuomo serving in a Joe Biden cabinet — or even being governor again.”

Au contraire mon ami! 

On the contrary my friends!   

As far as the democrats are concerned, these comments put him at the front of the list…, on both accounts!

Has COVID-19 become an excuse for everything? 

It seems that almost every company or governmental entity I have called for assistance the last few months always starts with the disclaimer, “due to the COVID-19 pandemic…”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic…:

…you may experience a longer wait time.

…we will not be able to take your call.

…we are limiting inquiries via email only.

…we are unable to guarantee you will receive a response at all.

…we won’t be able to do this.

…and we won’t be able to do that.

Please tell me why customer service should be affected…, when these people are on the phone and can work safely from their homes?

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” —Benjamin Franklin

David Lazarus, Business Columnist for The Los Angeles Times reports, “Among the various things the COVID-19 pandemic has changed, and not for the better, is customer service. Just ask anyone who has tried to contact California’s Employment Development Department with questions about unemployment benefits.”

That goes for the Unemployment Benefits Departments in any state, as well.

“A study last year in the Harvard Business Review found that the average American consumer spends 13 hours a year stuck on hold trying to resolve problems.”

And that seems like a conservative estimate to me.

“A third of disgruntled customers have to make two or more calls to resolve their issue, the study said. Many just give up.”

“More than three-quarters of consumers come away ‘less than satisfied’ with a company’s customer service.”

“And to no one’s surprise, the study found that in many cases, companies design their customer service departments to prevent irate customers from solving their problems.”

Now wait a minute there, Mr. Lazarus, I am surprised by this.

Why would a company design their customer service to prevent customers from solving their problems?

‘“This structure, we argue, keeps a lid on the amount of redress customers are willing to seek,’ the researchers determined. ‘In other words, by forcing customers to jump through hoops, the organization helps curb its redress payouts.’”

Ohhh, I can see that…, but not all customers seeking help are looking to get money back.

What about these customers?

“The Harvard Business Review study found that the larger a company’s market share, the less it cares what customers think of it, in any case. It cited in particular ‘airlines, internet, cable and telephone service providers.’”

‘“This may help us understand why some of the most hated companies in America are so profitable and why customer service, unfortunately, remains so frustrating,’ the study concluded.”

And the COVID-19 pandemic was just sitting there as an excuse too good to pass up.

The latest China virus propaganda, courtesy of Esquire Magazine.

According to Jack Holmes of Esquire magazine, “The Hot New Conservative Talking Point on COVID-19 Is Extremely Wrong.”

Is it?

Is it really, Jack?

Is it really “extremely wrong?”

“The weekend’s big talking point for people more concerned with propping up the president’s campaign than grappling with reality was that a new CDC report found 94 percent of people who have been recorded as dying from COVID-19 have also had other causes of death listed.”

I’m not sure exactly how this can be viewed as, “propping up the president’s campaign,” unless exposing the truth about the China virus accomplishes this.

And you, Mr. Holmes, and your liberal friends, seem to be the ones “grappling with reality.”

Well, I guess you’re not really “grappling…,” it’s more like intentionally twisting reality.

“The thinking from some exceptionally large brains in the conservative media was that this meant only six percent of the recorded COVID deaths are actually deaths due to COVID, so that a big chunk of the 183,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. somehow shouldn’t count.”

Well, I gotta tell you, Jack…, 100% minus 94% does leave us with 6%, now doesn’t it?

And, these “large brained” people you speak of are not implying that the China virus had nothing to do with the deaths of the 94%…, they’re just correctly pointing out that only 6%, or 10,980 people died solely from the virus, with no underlying conditions, which would be about .0033% of the US population.

Even the entire 183,000 number is only .0555% of the US population.

Remember that .5 would represent one half of 1 percent.

Again, who do you feel is “grappling with reality,” Mr. Holmes?

Comparatively, in 2020, an estimated 606,520 people will die of cancer in the United States.

That’s 3 times the COVID related number, and 55 times the COVID only number.

And, the number of people who die from heart disease are pretty similar to the cancer numbers.

Holmes continues by saying, “This hasn’t yet spread as widely yet as some other right-wing tropes [please note that ‘trope’ is new liberal buzzword, meaning a ‘figurative idea’], but these days, you have to take it all seriously—and nip it in the bud early.”

Yes, we know Jack…, you gotta nip those nasty facts in the bud early, and put the proper liberal spin on them as soon as possible!

“It’s understandable that the president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic.”

Now wait one darn minute there, Jack.

Who says, “The president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic?”

I mean bsides you, of course?

Most people, who support The President, which would include me, feel he has done a good job dealing with the pandemic. It is the democrat governors and democrat mayors who have mishandled the handling of the China virus in my opinion, while Biden condemned President Trump’s early flight restrictions from China, and Pelosi and DeBlasio encouraged their constituents to ignore the virus and go out and have a good time.  You know, your friends, Jack.

Mr. Holmes then goes on to say, “Much like he’d [The President would] rather dwell on—and encourage—the unrest in the nation’s streets.”

I’m not sure where this bit of liberal propaganda BS came from, but it does give us clearer view as to where you’re coming from, Jack, if indeed we needed a clearer view.

It’s ALL about the money (and power), honey.

Yes…, it’s all about the money (and power), honey…, and a rich man’s jokes are always funny.

And it’s all about the priviledged leftist elites gaining more control over our lives, while they live above the law.  Exhibit A would be democrat speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi.

In this case, the China virus is the vehicle being used by various global, corporate, and government entities to either gain more money, more power, or both.

It all seems quite clear.

And let’s be very clear…, the safety of the American people is not the real concern here.

Let’s examine the circumstances surrounding a drug called hydroxychloroquine.

aafrica 1

Hollie McKay of Fox News reports, “It has become one of the most controversial words [one of the most controversial names actually] in the world: hydroxychloroquine.”

“For several weeks, the primarily anti-malaria drug has been touted by President Trump and others as a vital aid in treating those suffering from coronavirus, [although] there is not yet a Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment.”

Ah, yes…, the good old FDA.

No political or monetary undercurrents swaying that arm of “the swamp!”

“So, is there any possible correlation between countries where the drug is routinely administered due to high malaria rates and lower cases of COVID-19? It’s too early to tell, medical professionals say, but it’s part of the investigation process.”

I guess some doctors and scientists are just better at putting two and two together than others.

‘“If you look [at the] countries where malaria is more prevalent and countries where COVID-19 infections are prevalent, you will find a striking difference. This correlation needs to be explored further as this is not just a mere coincidence,’ Dr. David Nazarian, a Beverly Hills-based physician, diplomate at the American Board of Internal Medicine and founder of My Concierge MD, told Fox News.”

I’m sure an effort to discredit Dr. Nazarian has already been launched.

And, fine…, go ahead and explore it all you want, but in the meantime why not utilize this safe drug that seems to have produced positive results?

“The drug initially burgeoned on the scene with an FDA thumbs-up in 1955 [that’s 65 years ago] and has been used as a proven remedy in the treatment of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.”

People have been using this drug safely for 65 years!

But now, all of a sudden, the left, and their cadre of doctors and “experts,” and the liberal propaganda, fake news media are calling the drug “dangerous,” and even saying it should be banned from use.

Why would that be?

You have to ask yourself, why would they be torpedoing this drug that has been used safely for 65 years?

65 years!!!

aafrica 11

“After a very small preliminary study conducted in France in the early weeks of COVID-19, Trump and other physicians pinned it as an aid in preventing the virus’ cells from entering the body’s cells, thus possibly helping clear the infection sooner.”

“Under Trump’s urging, the federal agency passed an emergency order last month, enabling doctors to administer hydroxychloroquine, which goes under the brand name Plaquenil, to coronavirus patients where they deemed appropriate, in practice referred to as ‘off-label prescribing.’”

“While much data is missing from the global coronavirus pie, given the lack of testing and in many cases government accountability to present accurate facts and figures, some science professionals have drawn elemental summations that while countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom and swaths of Europe have been battered by the virus, places with high malaria incidences have not — at least not yet.”

“Malaria, an infectious disease that impacts both animals and humans, takes root mostly in the tropical and sub-Saharan pockets of the planet.  The continent of Africa is by far the most impacted.”

“In its most recent malaria assessment, released in December, the World Health Organization points to Africa as having endured some 93 percent, or 213 million of all the 228 million cases documented in 2018.”

“Specifically, 19 countries ferry 98 percent of the world’s malaria onus — all located in Sub-Sahara Africa and India. Six countries accounted for over half of all malaria infections globally: Nigeria at 25 percent, the Democratic Republic of Congo at 12 percent, Uganda at 3 percent, and Mozambique, Niger and Cote de’ Ivoire all at 4 percent. According to the World Atlas, the other plagued places include Pakistan, Ethiopia, Malawi and Niger.”

“So, where do these nations lie when it comes to coronavirus rates? Here are the numbers of coronavirus cases recorded in these countries so far:

Nigeria: 254 cases, 0 deaths (population 191 million)

Democratic Republic of Congo: 0 cases (population 81.3 million)

Uganda: 52 cases, 0 deaths (population 43 million)

Mozambique: 17 cases, 0 deaths (population 29.7 million)

Cote de’ Ivoire: 0 cases (population 24.3 million)

Ethiopia: 55 cases, 2 deaths (population 105 million)

Malawi: 8 cases, 1 death (population 18.6 million)

Niger: 278 cases, 11 deaths (population 21.5 million)

Pakistan: 4,194 cases, 60 deaths (population 197 million)

India: 5,480 cases, 164 deaths (population 1.3 billion)”

“Nazarian pointed out that the confirmed infection of coronavirus in these countries is around 0.1 percent.”

These numbers were as of April 8, 2020.

“Critics have been quick to opine, however, that Trump is hawking a medicine for coronavirus victims without science-stamped ‘conclusions’ pertaining to its effectiveness or safety as a treatment for the novel pathogen.”

‘“If someone thought the drug was protective against transmission, they might take fewer precautions, and the risks to others might then paradoxically increase,’ cautioned Dr. Stanley Weiss, a professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. ‘This is a well-known concern in vaccine trials, where behavior change and potential risks need to be carefully weighed against efficacy.’”

Wow…, that’s pretty weak, Dr. Weiss.  Can’t you do better than that?

“Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has cautioned that hydroxychloroquine is far from being a ‘knockout drug’ and the American Medical Association, the American Pharmacy Association and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacy have also remained wary — even issuing a joint letter warning doctors about prescribing it for the purpose of fending off the coronavirus.”

I don’t think anyone has claimed it was a “knockout drug,” Fauci.

I don’t think there ever will be a “knockout drug” for the China virus, nor does anyone else…, so, why even go there?

aafrica 2

“Moreover, Dr. Attila Hertelendy, a professor in emergency and disaster management at Georgetown University, underscored that while there is some preliminary evidence from in-vitro studies that suggest the combo could inhibit coronavirus activity, ‘there is scant empirical evidence to support using antimalarials as an effective and safe treatment for the masses.’”

Yes, we know Doc…, there is “there is scant empirical evidence” to support most of the things all of you “experts” have been recommending.

aafrica 8

“When pressed about the dangers, Trump has bluntly responded, ‘I’m not a doctor, but I have common sense.’”

aafrica 10

Like I said earlier, “I guess some doctors and scientists [and presidents] are just better at putting two and two together than others.

aafrica 5

‘“Hydroxychloroquine is a relatively well-tolerated medicine that has been around for many years, and most people tolerate it without any side effects,’ Nazarian said.”

And that is the truth…, but the truth can be suppressed and misrepresented and ignored to the point that it is not perceived as the truth, at least by by some, any longer.

Linda Nordling for the Sciencemag.org website, points out that, “Although Africa reported its millionth official COVID-19 case last week, it seems to have weathered the pandemic relatively well so far, with fewer than one confirmed case for every thousand people and just 23,000 deaths so far. Yet several antibody surveys suggest far more Africans have been infected with the coronavirus—a discrepancy that is puzzling scientists around the continent. ‘We do not have an answer,’ says immunologist Sophie Uyoga at the Kenya Medical Research Institute–Wellcome Trust Research Programme.”

They say they don’t have an answer, but they attempt to account for this situation with every other explanation possible, other than the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine.

“So, what explains the huge gap between antibody data on the one hand and the official case and death counts on the other?”

“Part of the reason may be that Africa misses many more cases than other parts of the world because it has far less testing capacity.”

“Marina Pollán of the Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid, who led Spain’s antibody survey, says Africa’s youthfulness may protect it.”

Mahmoud Elkazzaz, of Damietta University, on researchgate.net, adds that, “[Africa’s] sunshine could protect against coronavirus by boosting vitamin D levels, study finds.”

“They believe vitamin D may help modulate the response of white blood cells to the virus, preventing them from releasing too many inflammatory cytokines – a problem known to afflict patients with severe forms of the disease.”

“We cannot neglect the role of alcoholic beverages, of which its usage is high in European countries [as opposed to Africa], inhibiting the conversion of retinol to retinoic acid [which aids in fighting the disease].”

The FDA’s own website now states, “FDA cautions against use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for COVID-19 outside of the hospital setting or a clinical trial due to risk of heart rhythm problems.”

BUT this, “Does not affect FDA-approved uses for malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.”

So, it’s perfectly okay for some people to take the drug, but others are at risk, depending on why you’re taking the drug?

The FDA then went further in a June 15, 2020 update, “Based on ongoing analysis and emerging scientific data, FDA has revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) to use hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat COVID-19 in certain hospitalized patients when a clinical trial is unavailable or participation is not feasible. We made this determination based on recent results from a large, randomized clinical trial in hospitalized patients that found these medicines showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death or speeding recovery.”

Then, Sharyl Attkisson, reported that, “Medical journals retract study that claimed hydroxychloroquine is dangerous.”

“The key study claiming hydroxycholoroquine is dangerous has been retracted by the New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet.”

“The journals say after the study was published, more than 100 scientists took issue with it, and it turns out the data cannot be confirmed.”

“Among other things, the scientists criticized the methodology of the study. They also questioned why the authors refused to identify any of the hospitals that contributed patient data, or even to name the countries where the hospitals are located.”

“The study’s lead author was Dr. Mandeep R. Mehra, a Harvard professor.”

So, is this the kind of credible research that all of these “experts” were calling for?

I guess “credible research” just means research that backs-up your desired narrative, in this case.

It would also not surprise me one bit to find out that Pelosi, Fauci, and all the rest of them were taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure, while at the same time beating The President up over it, and denying it to the rest of us just out of spite to President Trump.

Remember the credo of the liberal elite…, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

In the end, it all comes back to money, which just happens to correlate with the democrats desire to keep the virus scam going.

No “cure” can be allowed before the vast amounts of money to be made from a vaccine are realized, and no “cure” can be allowed while we still have a President Donald Trump.

Covid craziness!

I’ve got a real problem with all of the hypocrisy and double standards being thrust upon us by “the experts,” and various dictatorial governors in our country, regarding their response to the China virus.

For instance…, why is it okay to pack people onto a plane, or into an airport during “the pandemic,” but not okay to responsibly attend church, responsibly attend a funeral, attend a wedding, or even just visit someone in a hospital?

If you’ve been on a plane, you know you can’t even sit in your seat without physically coming in contact with the people sitting next to you in many cases, unless you’re in first class.

And wearing a mask is not even mandated on planes by the CDC!

What?!

How is this okay?

Is this what you call “following the science?”

Why is it okay to pack people onto a plane during “the pandemic,” gather in groups of thousands to “protest,” or pack into a Walmart, but it’s not okay to responsibly go to a gym, attend a sporting event, or go to school, in most places?

The two owners of the Atilis gym, in Bellmawr, New Jersey, have been ordered to pay $130,000 for defying Governor Murphy’s executive closure order there, and they are being fined an additional $15,000 each day that it remains open in violation of the governor’s order.

This after their gym doors were boarded-up by the state and their water and electric were shut off.

amasks2 11

Is this gym really that much of a China virus deathtrap?

amasks2 15

And this is happening in America?

It seems like this is becoming more an issue of governmental control rather than an issue of public health.

Now we hear, according to Amy McGorry of Fox news, “The odds of catching novel coronavirus on an airplane with infected passengers appear to be relatively small, though still possible, according to a new report.”

“The report is consistent with other research findings, one expert told Fox News.”

Ahhh, the anonymous “expert.”

But what is this “novel” coronavirus term?  This is the first time I’ve heard the word “novel” used in conjunction with the China virus.

According to Baton Rouge General, a part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, “Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. A ‘novel’ coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.”

“Dr. Aaron Glatt, chief of Infectious Diseases of Mount Sinai in New York, told Fox News that, “Airplane trips, especially if they are of a longer duration, have the potential to transmit infection from an infected person to the people sitting in their immediate vicinity.”

Reeeeally?!

amasks2 12

Well, thank you for that bit of expert analysis, professor!

‘“If one chooses to fly during the pandemic, I recommend that people mask and social distance as possible in the airport and on the plane. Certainly, someone ill or recently exposed to COVID should not be traveling on a plane,’ Glatt said.”

Now, there is some reasonable and common sense advice.

Why can’t we apply this advice to any of our activities involving social gathering?

What if we take the Dr.’s advice and apply it to going to the gym?

It would sound like this:

If one chooses to go to a gym during the pandemic, I recommend that people mask and social distance as possible in the gym. Certainly, someone ill or recently exposed to COVID should not be going to the gym.

Now, doesn’t that sound reasonable?

Like I said…, we can apply this advice to any social scenario, and life could go on like it always has.
