Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday warned that “more ominous” strains of COVID-19 have emerged out of South Africa and Brazil. The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said they’re looking “very carefully” at the two new mutant variants in addition to another highly-contagious one that was first detected in the United Kingdom. “People need to realize there’s more than one mutant strain,” Fauci told NBC anchor Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “There’s one from the UK that’s essentially dominated… There’s another more ominous one that’s in South Africa and Brazil.” Fauci said he doesn’t want “people to panic,”

This makes me wonder if he knows ANYTHING about viruses. You want them to mutate so that they become less harmful. The 1918 flu that killed you in 12 hrs is the H1N1 that we had a few years ago when 0bama was president. It’s mutated and we have resistance to it.

Unfreakinbelievable. When Donald Trump said he didn't want people to panic, it was declared a sentence of death for the entire country. When Fumbling Fauci says it it's pure gold. I don't believe any of their garbage, I will not get their shot and if some little bat kills me, it was God's will. The timing of this announcement can be nothing but coincidence, coming just after the launch of several cures, right? The democrats' game is up, in more ways than one. They want a permanent lockdown with people living on stimulus money exclusively, as a segue right into communism.

Fauci loves to share his opinions. Without data to support them, they are just opinions. America should "follow the science," which means entertain ALL reasonable hypotheses and depend on empirical data to verify the ones that deserve attention and reject those that do nort fit the data. The media does not understand that "science" REQUIRES empirical data. not just the opinion of a scientist, no matter what the credentials of that scientist/

The weekend of the initial shut-down alarmed me because of our rapid and complete acquiescence and obedience, we, The People, the freed and independent people, for the Greater Good, for Humanity, for the Elders (the children would always be doing better with this one), we did what we were told. Such obedient people! This could not be missed by those of dictatorial totalitarian inclinations, i.e., most of the Democrat Party and a few Republican who are always undergoing some identity crisis. And i have worried ever since that the usual winter flu would inspire them to call for mask mandates and rolling shut-downs every year. Because they know they can. Generally speaking, the American people are caring, compassionate, think of others before themselves. Too much erotic pleasure for dictators to refrain from exerting their power over the hoi polloi..

I spoke with friends in Ukraine yesterday. All their family members except one got ChiCom flu and got over it quickly in a few days except the 73 year old grandfather. He got pneumonia and had to take antibiotics for the pneumonia, but is fully recovered a few weeks later. The one family member who did not get it (living in the same small household) had taken the flu shot earlier in the year for the usual influenza, another "gift" from China. They are being told that getting over this virus does not give immunity. If this is true, I think it would be the first virus ever that didn't leave you immune afterwards.

Joe Biden became teary-eyed Tuesday afternoon as he delivered a speech thanking his staff and honoring his late son, Beau Biden, saying it should have been Beau who was about to be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. At the Major Joseph R. “Beau” Biden III National Guard Center, named after his son who died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46, the former veep’s voice broke and he shed a tear as he told a crowd of supporters that Delaware was “written on his heart.” “Ladies and gentlemen, I only have one regret:

Chief Justice John Roberts is eager to avoid presiding over Donald Trump's second impeachment trial–after he became a lightning rod during the first one. Just as the Senate is seeking to ascertain how it might proceed with an impeachment trial without blowing up the start of Joe Biden's term, the Supreme Court could face its own business being rearranged. The Constitution states that 'When the President of the United States is tried the Chief Justice shall preside.' But with the Senate having been in recess since the House voted to impeach, the trial will occur when Trump is no longer in office

Joe Biden may be taking his last ride. The president-elect may be banned from bringing his Peloton to the White House—because the high-tech exercise bike poses a threat from hackers, according to experts. The 78-year-old Democrat is known to start his mornings with a workout on the popular $1,895 home exercise bike that links riders up to intense workout classes, according to a report in Popular Mechanics. But because it has a microphone, camera and access to the internet, Biden’s bike opens up security fears—which could force him to ditch it in Delaware when he moves into
