Cannabis compounds block the virus responsible
for COVID-19: Study

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 1/13/2022 1:29:31 AM

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.

And if the FDA blocks the use of these compounds a la Ivermectin, you can always suck on a piece of rope.

I can see where this is going. Effective against COVID? Federal government mandates marijuana consumption for all citizens "to flatten the curve." Of course, a completely unintended side effect would be that no one would be paying attention to what this miserable collection governmental miscreants are doing any more.

Cancer Patient Over Vaccination Status

The one-size-fits-all medical tyranny of forced vaccinations for Covid-19 — which does nothing to stop the spread of the disease — has claimed another victim. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is refusing to grant 4-year-old cancer patient Rocco DiMaggio’s wish to go to Disneyworld — all because he is not vaccinated. Rocco and his two-year-old brother are not yet even eligible for the jab. “It was a punch in the gut,” Rocco’s mom told Newsmax about Make-A-Wish Foundation canceling the Disneyworld opportunity. Not only do children regardless of individual medical conditions have to get the mRNA shots, according to Make-a-Wish, the group’s policy says all family members who receive air travel must be vaccinated.

A hardline judge has fined, ridiculed and ruled that a 72-year-old Michigan man with lymphoma “should be ashamed” of being too weak to mow his overgrown lawn. Burhan Chowdhury of Hamtramck, a community about six miles north of Detroit, admittedly fell behind in yard maintenance after he was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes in 2019. His overgrown property prompted local officials to subpoena Chowdhury. In now-viral footage of the Zoom court hearing on Jan. 10, Chowdhury’s breathing appeared labored as Judge Alexis G. Krot of the 31st District Court berated him. “You should be ashamed of yourself,” says Krot, in a video shared Jan. 12 on social media,

Starting from day one of the first case of COVID-19 reaching the United States, Epidemiologists have investigated and tracked the virus in order to determine how to control or stop the spread or prevent it from happening again. Often called “Disease Detectives”, Epidemiologists search for the cause of disease, identify people who are at risk. As the number of cases and deaths climbed former President Donald Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force was asked to formulate a plan to combat the “pandemic”. For some unknown reason, Dr. Fauci and the team minimized the benefits of natural immunity when considering what draconian measures to recommend to the President.

Even as President Joe Biden was spewing deplorable falsehoods about his political opponents in Atlanta, the chickens of his administration's economy were coming home to roost. Wednesday's Bureau of Labor Statistics report on inflation, revealing last month's 7% inflation rate, sets yet another 40-year record, harkening back to the bad old days of double-digit interest rates and Paul Volcker's bitter medicine for the economy of the early 1980s. With this week's report, it is clear that the Biden economy is in an inflation crisis. It is a crisis that neither Biden nor his useless Twitter-addicted senior staff has any clue how to fix.

A young man who looks like a teenager walks into a liquor store and pulls a bottle of cheap whiskey off a shelf. He puts it down at the checkout counter and pulls out his wallet. The clerk at the counter looks at him skeptically. "Can I see your ID?" he asks. "Yes," says the young man, who instantly takes his driver's license out of his wallet and hands it to the clerk. The driver's license indicates to the clerk that the customer in front of him had turned 21 two months ago. He sells him the cheap whiskey. Then another young man walks into the store.

Oh, Chuck, screwed up royally here. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the Senate Majority Leader, is probably the only Democrat right now who can be in that spot. That doesn’t mean he has an iron grip on the caucus in the likes of the late Harry Reid. Schumer announced his intention to tweak the filibuster to pass the Democrats’ elections bill. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) were already vocal opponents, which killed this idea. It’s a 50-50 Senate, though Chuck and the rest of his party think they have this wide mandate to do whatever they want—they don’t.

I have to say I’m so tired of hearing the term “voting rights” being pushed by the Democrats. Anyone who can legally vote can vote. No legislation that the Republicans are pushing is depriving one person of the right to vote. What they deal with are voter integrity issues like having voter ID or ballot harvesting — that’s what Democrats don’t want because those measures help to prevent fraud. As I noted over the weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed election integrity bills were a “legislative continuation of Jan. 6.” But while she said pushed that insanity, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) gave the game away,

President Joe Biden was not making a 'human' comparison between opponents of his voter rights push with racists and segregationists in a speech this week, said the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday. Rather he simply meant to compare the actions of those who opposed reform with the likes of George Wallace and other notorious figures. The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.

Operation Lone Star was created by Abbott amidst a wave of illegal immigrants from Central America crossing the US-Mexico border.

On top of that, wealthy countries caused harm by bidding up vaccine prices to hoard the "limited supply" available last year. These are not criticisms from a purported purveyor of COVID misinformation. They came from the biggest private funder of global health research. Bill Gates, whom the National Institutes of Health called a "superhero" for his eponymous foundation's lavish health spending, frowned on the results of COVID vaccine research and distribution practices in a short Twitter chat Tuesday.
