Get ready to learn more Greek letters. Scientists warn that omicron’s whirlwind advance practically ensures it won’t be the last version of the coronavirus to worry the world. Every infection provides a chance for the virus to mutate, and omicron has an edge over its predecessors: It spreads way faster despite emerging on a planet with a stronger patchwork of immunity from vaccines and prior illness. That means more people in whom the virus can further evolve. Experts don’t know what the next variants will look like or how they might shape the pandemic, but they say there’s no guarantee the sequels of omicron will cause milder


I guess the AP didn't get the memo. This is an election year and everything about the Wuhan virus is to be buried under the January 6th Committee hearings.

I knew it. They will NEVER let this go. Omicron was a bust, so its time to invent a new control boogeyman. Lord Fauci and his Chinese lab rats are going to have to inflict something else upon the world since COVID is finally petering out.

Now hear THIS! Fauci, CDC, NIH, medical profession. STOP STABBING PEOPLE WITH WORTHLESS GENE ALTERING CHEMICALS!!! We have a plethora of variants because these purported vaccines aren't. The virus survives nicely thank you and changes it's clothes to evade the "vaccine" before leaving one victim for the next. These are NOT vaccines, they don't kill the virus. We have variants because we are CREATING them with these useless jabs. Let me point out, this was predicted at the beginning of the scamdemic.

If we take history as our guide, which seems to be a sound plan, successive variants will be less and less lethal as errors accumulate and eventually there will be no real examples of it 'in the wild'. This is what happened to the 1918 flu, and any rapidly mutating virus will do the same. Their genetic material is unstable, cannot repair errors and they steadily change due to these replication errors. Eventually, it will change into a glob of protein that cannot infect humans at all. It was designed by people to be very dangerous, but as it replicates, it drifts genetically steadily away from that intentionally dangerous design. Remember the game of 'telephone' where you hear a short message, and "repeat it" to your neighbor in a whisper? By 25 repetitions, due to 'replication errors' in the hearing and re-telling the message is lost entirely. This is like the steadily increasing errors in RNA virus replication. It cannot breed true, cannot repair genetic errors, inevitably mutates into nothing. Genetically stable viruses, like smallpox, use DNA for genetic material, and breed true for centuries. We are fortunate that this is an unstable RNA virus, mutating on a timescale of months.

Viruses devolve over time. They get weaker and weaker and more resistant to whatever vaccines are being used against them. They will be coming around forever. Nothing you can do but catch it and let it run its course and then you have natural immunity forever. God is still in charge.

There's no too many more that can use that aren't confusing with other uses (delta), silly to say (epsilon) or politically incorrect (pi). Just go to Omega and be done with it. (Zeta is not the last letter of the Greek alphabet, hence in Revelations, the Lord saying He is "the alpha and the omega." In other words, the beginning and the end.)

UK citizen Malik Faisal Akram, who had a known history of extreme behaviour stretching back over 20 years was known to British spy agency MI5 but had been judged as no longer posing a threat to the public in 2020, reports in UK media claim. Malik Faisal Akram, 44, flew to the United States after Christmas 2021, and weeks later took hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas. He was shot dead by law enforcement officials at the scene. Yet questions remain unanswered over how Akram was able to travel and gain access to a handgun given his long history of extremist behaviour.

Last Sunday, 30-year-old Winston Glynn walked into a Burger King in East Harlem, New York at 1:00 a.m., armed with a gun. Surveillance footage showed him entering the restaurant, waving his gun at workers behind the counter, pistol-whipping a male customer, and punching a female manager. As reported by the New York Post, despite nobody resisting Glynn’s demands, he then fatally shot a 19-year-old cashier who had only been working at the restaurant for three weeks. And now? Glynn is reportedly demanding “reparations.” According to CNBC, the suspect was seen demanding so-called reparations and ranting about “social justice” as police officers escorted him out of an East Harlem police station.

Democrats doubled down Tuesday on changing the Senate filibuster, despite authoring a 2017 letter in support of the long-established 60-vote threshold for certain legislation. In 2017, 61 senators penned a bipartisan letter to then-Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., urging them to preserve the filibuster as a way to promote bipartisanship and maintain the Senate as the "world’s greatest deliberative body." Pressed Tuesday at a news conference on whether they were hypocrites for now urging a rollback of the filibuster, Democrats said much has changed in the nearly five years since that letter, citing the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol to stop

In Orange County, California, Deputy District Attorney Kelly Ernby recently passed away due to complications from COVID. Ernby had been a vocal critic of government vaccination mandates and was herself unvaccinated according to her family and friends. This led to the predictable, ghoulish end-zone dancing on social media that we regularly hear from supporters of mandates and immunity passports. While most people in the media are compassionate enough (or at least politically sensible enough) to condemn such callous behavior, the Los Angeles times managed to find someone to take the opposite position.

Back in 1998, sci-fi TV series The X-Files aired an episode called “Kill Switch” about an AI gone rogue. Told when the internet was still accessed by most using dial-up modems, it was a fascinating tale of technology run amuck, a message about not handing too much of your life over to the digital world. While it might also seem like a sci-fi tale, soon enough the United States federal government could force automakers to install kill switches authorities can access and use to shut down any newer vehicle.To many, that might sound like a wonderful idea.

The fourth dose of the Covid vaccine is less effective on the Omicron variant and provides only limited defence, a preliminary study in Israel has found. Israel's Sheba Medical Center began administering a fourth vaccine to more than 270 medical staff last month during a trial program. Experts studied the defence of the Pfizer booster in 154 people after two weeks and the Moderna booster in 120 people—who had previously been vaccinated three times with the Pfizer vaccine—after one week. The clinical trial found that both groups showed increases in antibodies 'slightly higher' than following the third vaccine last year. But it said the increased antibodies did not prevent
