Ah yes, the never ending variants. That's it that's the ticket! Let's see more control, more money for Amazon, more and more vaccinations and more power for the ruling class.

Somebody didn't pay attention in biology and micro-biology courses. A successful mutation isn't deadlier, or its host don't survive long enough to spread it widely. Successful mutations are towards much less deadly, possibly more contagious. Unless these aren't simply mutations, but are being pumped out of a bio-warfare lab.

I wonder where the "deadlier variants" language comes from. The data suggest that the delta variant (which is rapidly rising in the US and Britain) is much less deadly than the Wuhan variant. Admittedly, the increases in cases is occurring in younger unvaccinated populations, who are less at risk of death than older people were pre-vaccination: this complicates the analysis. The good news is that the mRNA vaccines are highly effective against the delta variant

This statement from the head of the (worthless) World Health Organization: "means even countries with high vaccination rates could once again find themselves back where they were in March 2020." So..... if wealthy, highly vaccinated countries don't 'share the wealth' with the rest of the countries, new variations will show up, for which the existing vaccines do not work... But if the existing vaccines don't work against the 'new variants', then vaccinating the whole world will not accomplish anything, as the 'new variants' are vaccine resistant anyway. This strikes me as nonsensical fear-mongering...... OR.....New 'Variations' are being cooked up in the Wuhan lab as we speak, and are being readied to be released on the world. Let's see... what was that saying..... "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."...H. L. Mencken

I believe I saw an article by a REAL epidemiologist, unlike Fauci who only played one on TV, who said that the natural progression of a virus is for variants to become more contagious but less serious over time. Pronouncements of the medical establishment contradict actual science, all for the purposes of many and power.

The organization known as WHO is apparently stacked with politicians from Asia and Africa. It's a politicized organization. Getting rich countries to give more money to poor countries is a spiel that was also heard during the "AIDS crisis".

The most recent example came Friday, when Biden accused Facebook of “killing people” because of the misinformation spread on the social media network about coronavirus vaccines. It was a striking statement that triggered a furious response from Facebook. And on Monday, it became clear Biden had gone further and been more biting than he intended. Less than three days after his initial remarks, the president reversed course, saying Facebook “isn’t killing people.” “My hope is

Data released Tuesday added to the evidence that builders are pulling back. Single family housing starts continued to rise in June, many of those for homes already sold. But building permits, an indicator of future construction, fell more than expected last month to the lowest point since August and were about 100,000 units below the six-month average, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. “The single family market in particular desperately needs more new homes, especially on the lower end

President Joe Biden’s administration is weighing the idea of more mask mandates for Americans during the coronavirus pandemic — even if they are vaccinated, according to a report published Wednesday. Details of the masking discussions were reported by the Washington Post. The White House is weighing these options as the “Delta variant” of the virus is spreading, even among the vaccinated. The report noted that federal health officials are considering whether they would update masking guidance, asking all Americans to wear masks indoors in public places.
