A pair of new studies suggest that those with a certain blood type may be less likely to be infected with the novel coronavirus and less likely to suffer severe illness if they were to be infected. The studies were both published in the journal Blood Advances, a publication of the American Society of Hematology, on Wednesday. In the first, researchers looked at some 473,654 people in Demark who were tested for COVID-19 between February and July and compared them with the general population of roughly 2.2 million people. (For context, about 7,422 results were positive.)

It makes sense that there are factors which limit many peoples' susceptibility to the disease. After all we've been through, still only a small fraction of the population has been infected.

This info was out there months ago, but this is a larger study, same info, though. Unfortunately, I'm not in the favored blood group.

I am an expert in alternative medicine. I mentioned this a few months ago and I'll repeat it again today. There's one food that can significantly protect you from getting Covid 19 -- bell peppers without the seeds. However, you must avoid all other types of peppers, Mexican foods and any foods which contain capsaicin. You would need to eat at least three serving of bell peppers per week.

Amy Coney Barrett hit a home run 22 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 10/17/2020 12:31:18 PM Post Reply
In three days before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett did more than just prove that she belongs on the Supreme Court. She delivered one of the most effective performances ever for a nominee seeking the job. As judicial nominations have become more contentious, all recent nominees to the Supreme Court have demonstrated a depth of knowledge about constitutional law and a lawyer’s ability to field questions from senators. Barrett certainly did all of that. In days of testimony, she effortlessly recounted the issues at stake in various legal disputes, juggled questions from senators, and explained the reasoning in her own decisions and academic writings, all without notes.

Say whatever you want about Donald J. Trump, but there is no one better on the planet who can send Democrats into apoplectic meltdown in a nanosecond than the 45th president of the United States. Such was the case on Friday when Trump joked with supporters at a rally in Macon, Georgia, that he wouldn’t “feel so good” if he lost the election to Joe Biden, and might have to “leave the country” if he does. Before we continue, the operative word in the prior sentence is joked. Trump spoke for nearly two hours before the energized crowd at an event that can only be described —

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said during an ABC News town hall Thursday he would seek to dramatically raise taxes on job-creating corporations and wealthy Americans despite lingering economic malaise caused by COVID-19-related business closures and lockdowns. After moderator George Stephanopoulos asked the former vice president if he planned on raising the corporate tax rate even as the economy continues to struggle amid the pandemic, Biden responded, “Absolutely.” Throughout his candidacy, Biden has said he would move to repeal and eliminate tax cuts passed by the GOP-controlled Congress and President Donald Trump in December 2017. If he does, that means the U.S. corporate tax rate of 21 percent —

The headlines in today's news all said something along the lines of "Biden says he's not a fan of court-packing." The implication was clear: all those conservatives saying a Biden and Harris administration will destroy America as we know it by turning the Supreme Court into an unelected Democrat super-legislature need to stand down. It's not going to happen. However, if you pay careful attention to what Biden said, he didn't condemn actual court-packing at all. He either used Orwellian words to condemn a conservative justice joining the Supreme Court or gave a weak opinion, not a statement of intent.

During the Democrat primary, the candidates were crawling over each other to be the most aggressive in imposing stringent gun control laws and, if possible, seizing people's guns. The Second Amendment didn't stand a chance in that crowd. You may have noticed, though, that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris don't talk about guns now. Instead, with the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots having sent Americans on an epic gun-buying binge, they've opted for discretion. The Trump campaign, however, has put out a hard-hitting ad with a necessary reminder that the Democrats will still take your guns.

Well into President Obama's first term, I still bought into the general belief that politics was a noble profession, and our leaders wanted nothing but the best for all Americans. Sure, Republican and Democrat politicians fought hard for their differing ideologies and constituents, but at the end of the day, they could be trusted to compromise and do what's right. I hate to admit such naïveté, but that's what I thought. But as Obama traveled the world criticizing and talking down the United States, I had this uneasy feeling that something wasn't right. And as the mainstream media fervidly praised Obama for his globalist and anti-American leanings,

Twenty twenty has introduced several dynamic young Republican candidates who use eye-catching, powerful campaign videos to challenge incumbent Democrats. Joe E. Collins III, a naval veteran from South Los Angeles, is the latest entrant in this category. He's running as a Republican and challenging Rep. Maxine Waters, who's spent 44 years enriching herself while her constituents live in the slums of South L.A. (AKA California's 43rd Congressional District). Collins opens his video by standing in front of Maxine Waters's beautiful Southern California mansion, worth a hefty $6 million. It's not in her district, though.

It is obvious from Joe Biden telling voters that they don't deserve to know if he plans to pack the Supreme Court that he and his handlers are terrified of a negative voter reaction to the plan. Biden's remarkably stupid comment came in response to a reporter's question at an interview where no teleprompter guidance was feasible: On Friday, a KTNV reporter asked him again about whether he backs court packing, saying, "This is the number one thing that I've been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days." "Well, you've been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans,

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ refusal to answer the question of whether a Democrat victory would lead to the packing of the Supreme Court is troubling. It suggests they do indeed intend to pack the court. That would be a threat to our republic, made all the worse because the press is asleep/ Here's why: If President Trump threatened to pack the Supreme Court there would be 24/7 news coverage with Democrat wailing and gnashing of teeth about Trump’s threat being an extinction event for democracy, blah, blah, blah. But when it’s the Democrat party making such a threat, all you hear from the media is crickets.

People are noticing the missing crowds when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris visited Phoenix on Thursday. Not a single person turned out to cheer on the Democrat party candidates. None. Nada. Zip. That is stunning. Trump-supporters find this heartening when comparing this to the crowds who turn out for Trump. However, we may be making head-to-head comparisons between the wrong crowds. The critical metric might not be Biden crowds versus Trump crowds. It might be Trump-supporters' enthusiasm versus Black Lives Matter protesters' enthusiasm — and the latter could win. NewsNOW, at Fox, reported on a stop that Biden and Harris —

If money can buy political votes, veteran Senator Lindsey Graham is toast. His re-election opponent, Jaime Harrison, has raised more money in the third quarter of 2020 than any Senate candidate in history, outdistancing even Beto O'Rourke, who ran in Texas, with a population almost six times larger than South Carolina. James Arkin of Politico writes: South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison raised a staggering $57 million in the third quarter of this year, shattering the previous record for a Senate candidate as he seeks to unseat GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham. The haul only increases Harrison's massive financial advantage over Graham, who is seeking a fourth term in the Senate

In yet another glaring example that today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of not all that long ago, Joe Biden pledged on Friday to sign the so-called “Equality Act” — a bill would that force public schools to allow biological boys who identify as transgender girls to compete in girls’ sports. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment. As the Daily Caller reported, the Equality Act passed the House with unanimous support from Democrats in May 2019 but didn’t come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate. This is yet another example of what will happen to this country if Biden wins the White House

Twitter has refused to unlock the New York Post's account since Wednesday unless the outlet deletes six tweets about its reporting on 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, the Post reported. Both the San Francisco-based social media platform and Facebook came under fire this week after the two blocked users from sharing a Post article showing purported communication between 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company. The younger Biden's work in the country while his father was vice president was at the heart of President Trump's impeachment trial earlier this year.

Former President Barack Obama will head to Philadelphia on Wednesday to campaign on behalf of the Biden-Harris ticket, his first appearance on the trail thus far. With just two weeks until the election, Obama will rally support in a battleground state that President Trump won by less than a percentage point in 2016. Current polls show Democratic opponent Joe Biden leading Trump by more than five percentage points, according to a Real Clear Politics average. (Snip) Meanwhile, vice presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has tweaked her campaign events after multiple staffers tested positive for the coronavirus, but her husband, Doug Emhoff, will hold a rally in Philadelphia on Saturday.

Harvey Weinstein is broke and will likely die if he remains in prison, his lawyer said Friday at a hearing over whether the former powerhouse producer should be freed on bail pending an appeal of his Manhattan rape conviction. “[Weinstein’s] physical and mental condition has so deteriorated, I do not think it’s an overstatement to say that if he is not released as part of this application, his chances of surviving in prison are rather low,” one of his lawyers, Barry Kamins, told Judge Angela Mazzarelli during a virtual hearing in the Appellate Division First Department.

The sparse attendance and conspicuous lack of enthusiasm at Joe Biden’s rallies seems to have led old Joe’s handlers, despite his 10,000-point lead in the polls, to decide that another round of Islamopandering might be just the shot in the arm their campaign needs. After all, hard-Leftists such as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Linda Sarsour are all Muslims, and all were firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp before the Democratic National Committee shivved their man yet again. Their support for Biden has been decidedly tepid. And so it was time to send them some love. On Wednesday, Biden released a video message to Muslim Advocates,

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there.
