Leading British and US scientists thought it was likely that Covid accidentally leaked from a laboratory but were concerned that further debate would harm science in China, emails show. An email from Sir Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, on February 2 2020 said that “a likely explanation” was that Covid had rapidly evolved from a Sars-like virus inside human tissue in a low-security lab. (Snip) But a leading scientist told Sir Jeremy that “further debate would do unnecessary harm to science in general and science in China in particular”.

I guess seeing a few million die is OK - as long as Red China doesn't get its feathers ruffled.

Imagine if Galileo, "concerned" that his hypothesis that the planets revolve around the sun might do unnecessary harm to science & the Church, decided to keep his discovery to himself. Such is the “science” of today’s politically-correct pseudo-scientists. They did SO WELL with the mRNA "vaccines."

Excuses and prevarcations. Lies. The drug compsnies already had what they needed before Covid was released. The Democrats hindeted Trump from reacting until normal measures would not be enough. After Trump gave the drug companies the recommended vover, someone leaked the 'progress' on the mRNA 'vaccines' they ALL had ready. The Swamp then tried to maximize the political damage. What we saw the last two years was a combined assaultof biological and political weapons on thr free people of America, by the Democrats.

So the "scientists" did not follow the science to determine how/where Covid came from, but used "consensus " to stay in people's (government grant givers) good ģraces. They changed science to propaganda by not allowing any questioning of Covid origins. These scientists are cowards and bear a great responsibility for the Covid deaths resulting from their cowardice.

no mea culpa's, please. these people are neck deep into the conspiracy to overthrow our government that it is reaching the point of Treason and all because the demcommies are soiling their underwear considering the prospect that our duly elected President, Donald J. Trump will, once again, assume his rightful place in the White House as our 47th President and giant killer. this time he will dismember China, Soviet Union, Iran and the others around the world who have decided that the United States is no longer the most powerful nation on the planet. they will all regret taking that position and they know it. President Donald J. Trump is the most feared leader the United States of America has ever had as its Commander-in-Chief and his reputation will always be the bedrock for future leaders as an example of how to be the most influential leader our country.

I think the ship has sailed on that international harmony BS. As for the number of people who supposedly have died because of Covid. Recent revelations have revealed what many have suspected for almost two years. Those numbers are way overblown. It's estimated that of the 800,000 plus who have been reported to have died from Covid, only six to ten percent ACTUALLY died of Covid, and those who have died had at least four other health issues as well. So instead of the 800,000 plus, we're looking 80,000 plus at the most. This what you get when the government offers money to hospitals for every Covid death they report.

As inflation hits 7%, here's a list of

Posted by NorthernDog 1/12/2022 2:10:13 PM Post Reply
Inflation has become one of the top economic issues in the U.S., and the Biden administration is acting accordingly with various policy actions. U.S. consumer prices rose 0.5% in December and 7.0% on a year-over-year basis, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It's the fastest rate since 1982. Two of the biggest drivers of price spikes over 2021 have been in food and energy which is likely the reason the White House has focused on both of those sectors both for inflation as well as antitrust reasons. Tying the two issues together is not without critics, even among Democrats.

Eleven North Carolina voters filed a challenge to block GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn from running for reelection in 2024, saying his actions on January 6, 2021, disqualified him from occupying the role. Cawthorn, who represents North Carolina's 11th congressional district, made baseless claims about the 2020 election at the "Save America Rally," which preceded the Capitol riot. In a challenge submitted to the North Carolina State Board of Elections on Monday, lawyers representing the 11 voters argued that Cawthorn's actions before and on January 6, 2021, violated the 14th Amendment.

ZEBULON, N.C. — Over the past couple years, there has been an increase in armadillo sightings across the Carolinas, and officials with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission says it's due to climate change. Armadillos have been spotted in 23 counties across North Carolina, including Wake and Durham. Since 2007, there have been as many as 30 sightings of armadillos in Wake County. Greg Batts, an N.C.

During an interview on WRVA, a Richmond-area radio station, reporter Matt Demlein asked Northam about any updates in assessing how the huge transportation backlog transpired, especially as many were stuck in their vehicles with limited heat, minimal food options, and frigid outdoor temperatures.

Calling those who evade the booster question “gutless,” Trump suggested that they are trying to avoid offending anti-vaxxer supporters even though they know the booster shot saves lives. “They don’t want to say it. Because they’re gutless,” Trump said in a new interview with the far-right One America Network. “You got to say it. Whether you had it or not. Say it.” Trump didn’t name DeSantis in the interview.

Researchers from Oregon State University announced that certain compounds with cannabis are able to block the virus responsible for COVID-19 from penetrating human cells. The study, led by Richard van Breemen of Oregon State's Global Hemp Innovation Center, College of Pharmacy, and Linus Pauling Institute, was published Monday in the Journal of Natural Products. A pair of cannabinoid acids were found to bond with the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and block a vital part of the process that allows the virus to infect people, van Breemen said. "We identified several cannabinoid ligands and ranked them by affinity to the spike protein," van Breemen said.

CNN’s ratings took a nosedive by a massive 90 percent both overall and in the all-important demographic coveted by advertisers in the first week of the new year. The Jeff Zucker-led cable news network averaged just 548,000 viewers during the week of Jan. 3—a major drop from the nearly 2.7 million viewers for the same week in 2021, according to Nielsen ratings. The year-ago ratings were jolted by the left-leaning network’s coverage of the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol, which resulted in CNN having its most-watched day since Ted Turner launched the news outlet in 1980.

Every time I return to report on a new poll of Joe Biden, I wonder: is there a bottom? And every time, Biden keeps convincing me that he still can find ways to go lower. But I have to say, the new Quinnipiac poll definitely has Biden circling the drain and going down fast. I don’t know how much lower he can go and still not have to resign in utter disgrace. He’s in a death spiral across all categories and all groups. Biden’s approval rating has cratered to 33 percent, with 53 percent disapproving. In November, it was 36 percent approval, so it’s still continuing to go down
