    We all know damn good and well how those in power operate. Lies, more lies, and damn lies. Covid - Lie Weapons of Mass Destruction - Lie Gulf of Tonkin - Lie Vegas Shooting - Lie Pick a topic. Pretty much ANY topic. Would anyone put it past the insane kleptocrats in office to try to pull of a Fake Alien Invasion at this point? There always needs to be some reason for us to need them. The reality they are terrified of? We realize we dont need them at all, and are often much better off just working together!

    Absolutely sensible. I guess the political stars just are somehow not aligned to make this front page news, when it should be. To be fair i think WaPo did a story or was it New York Post? The two scientific writeups i've seen concluding that sars-cov2 is a chimeral product of GoF work were at least legit to the point I could tell they were written by scientists with a background in the field. I did a bit of computer work for virus research and from what little I learned the gene editing tools cut at specific, known sequences of dna/rna so general purpose cut-and-paste work will begin and end with specific 'sentence fragments'. Based on this and other analysis the conclusion was 'super unlikely was this natural'. The articles I read analysing the lab-origin are far past my experience level though, but you know -- if a lot of the guys I know about aren't even weighing-in on the debate. Even after I ask them. They're scared. But I don't think scared of anything specific so much - the universities are just SO politically toxic now, anything can get you deplatformed, and they have learned to shut up through decades of training to shut up.

    Keep in mind what is really under attack is the mental image of the Male. If they can provide a "good reason" to require all men to shave off all their facial hair, even if it is a legitimate reason (which it is not), the result is that it destroys the mental image of Male and replaces it with the idea of "men with facial hair are dirty so stay away". Divide and Conquer.

    Hate is the emotion evolution gave us to do what's needed to survive in conflict. To hate is not necessarily to hate without just cause; it is not to initiate aggression; it can be the the natural human response to having been aggressed-upon. Like a stimulant drug it can be self-destructive - but in the right dose, at the right time, it can be the fuel for the selfless committment to honorably pursue justice. Today's 'anti-hate' campaign is just part of a program to render white people, and white people only, defenseless against a train of abuses and usurpations rained upon them. To those who insist on virtue-signaling their devotion to this dogma I only say, not all are fit for survival in an environment where they have been made the target. As to the second virtue-signaling dogwhistle 'prejudice', let's consider the word "pre-judge". It indicates a judgement felled before the essential facts are known. If you're hiring a fireman, it's not prejudicial to reject a 65-pound female applicant. The presence of the small woman in front of you informs you of her suitability to carry people out of burning buildings. Maybe there's an off-chance she has some superhuman strength hidden-away but it's your choice whether to spend the time testing that. We always make choices based on imperfect and incomplete information, and we'd be dead if we didn't. Likewise if you're downtown and you see a group of 25 japenese tourists coming down the road at you taking pictures of everything, you're not pre-judging them by reacting differently than if you saw the same number of black youths strutting and flashing gang-signs. You're incorporating the information you know about that group based on appearance. If the latter belongs to a group with murder rate 18 times higher than the former, you'd be a fool to not incorporate that knowledge into your immediate plans. Now please don't take my comments to imply that I advocate hating or pre-judging. I'm well aware of the harms these can cause, but these terms have been turned into war-words, meant to stifle thought and truth.

    That is one of the generational problems with slavery. "The greatest tool of any oppressor of the mind of the oppressed." One of the problems appears to remain today, mostly because it is pushed hard on the black community by MSM, is the mindset of the collective black community. They are taught to hate those who tried to free them and offer them meaningful places in a free society. Trouble there is that their minds have been shaped to reject Freedom because that is a major part of what Slavery did back in the day. And that guys name was William Lynch, a very early psychologist who lived well prior to the time of Sigmund Freud or Edward Bernays. Lynch was also a black man. He taught that in order to create a truly obedient slave, the source of influence of Slavery had to come from the slaves themselves. Thus, Lynching was born. They took one black man and hung him by a rope. The rope became the symbol but they never discuss the other relevant information about Lynch's "procedure". The important part that was left out was that all of the black women were forced to watch the black man being hung. What this did was to destroy their mental image of a free black man so that they would raise their black children to be subservient to the strong dominant black woman. The black women were taught to teach the black men to be obedient slaves, and because they were mothers, their children did the exact same thing, absent the physical torture of the black man hanging from the rope. The effect of this type of psychological trauma on the black community ended up being generational, and reminded constantly by the MSM and the Leftist Narrative.

    Most of them are an embarassments to the nation. Insurrection is "an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government". If you consider our legal tradition of property rights an integral part of the established government, I'd say calling for riots in barely couched language qualifies. But how many in 'the government' are in fact traitors to the nation? Isn't every left wing schoolmarm and college prof an enemy of the Constitution, properly understood? Hasn't their "long march through the institutions" been completed, with them now sipping champagne in the halls of power, so to speak? I know some of them are regretting it, like Michael Rechtenwald, but I'd say a good portion are not. Sigmund Freud announced in 1919 to his friends that he was now 'Half a Bolshevist'. Startled, they asked him why half, and he responded:

    Then you've been ignoring the non-media-propaganda reasons. The controversy around 'gain of function' experiments, specifically those in easily transmissible airborne pathogens like Coronavirus, long predates the covid-19 scam. The names of the players are known and the paper trail of their funding is as well. Fauci and scientist kooks in Canada and France have been doing coronavirus GoF experiments since the mid 90s. There's the NIAID and pentagon grants to Daszak's "EcoHealth Alliance". There was the moratorium on GoF research, with an evidence trail going back at least decade. I understand it's easy to become lost in a sea of media disinfo. How about turning off the damn tv in the first place. Then start to train yourself in discerning reliable from unreliable reporting. Maybe you're one of those "it's ALL A LIE except this random theory i just pulled OUT OF MY ASS" people I shouldn't be talking to, though.

    That probably explains why you are here. You arent like most people that rely on faith based belief, where the faith is the confidence we have in the "Elected" officials (using that term very loosely as we know damn good and well Biden was not elected), and they "believe" the lies expressed by those elected officials as their disinformation is presented in the same exact way truthful information tends to be presented. Hell, I think most of us here know better than to trust the lies of the top.

    My numbers don't lie. There's a net wealth caused by millions of people working over generations along with the productivity gains through innovation and capital investment. That was pilfered by the hidden tax caused by the federal reserve regime and the fractional reserve banking fraud. Comparisons to other countries are fair insofar as you can say 'we got screwed less', but the fact is, bottom tier wage earners would be getting $44/hr and not living paycheck to paycheck if the Krugman Klass hadn't defrauded us of the wealth we produced. ALL THOSE PRINTED TRILLIONS WENT INTO SOMEBODY'S POCKETS, and it wasn't wage-earners. If you haven't been studying how it was done at places like mises.org - well, nobody's stopping you!

    Sorry if I misunderstood you. Yes, the common term 'wuhan flu' is misleading insofar as the common flu is caused by influenza, not corona or specifically the sars-variant sars-cov2. But the Wuhan part is legit, since the tradition for naming is to include the region of origin. And the flu part is defensible to the degree that the level of symptoms and mortality is closer to the flu than the other airborn respitorary diseases people are familiar with. 'Wuhan Flu' was just a common nickname. You don't get bent out of shape that we call a 'cold' something that's caused by more than one type of virus, do you? What's getting me is the outbreak just happened to come from the area they were doing the gain-of-function work on corona virus, and the gene homology research along with other analysis strongly indicates it is likely a synthetic chimeric virus. That, in turn, gives us a real possibility that the outbreak is the result a deliberate leak, - which would amount to the kind of bio terrorism speculated about in fiction for the past few decades - which would demand an investigation more rigorous and consequential than any crime in living memory.

Yeah it was obvious to people paying attention, but the broad masses of Trump supporters had no idea how bad Pompeo is, so the trojan horse moniker isn't really off the mark, IMO.

    "each contact with a contaminated surface has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of causing an infection." Well take my average day which consists of touching about 5 hundred surfaces, times 365 days and that's 182500 contacts per year. Say 1 out of a hundred surfaces is contaminated, that works out to 1825/10000 chance of infection, or 18.25%. Helps to think things through with numbers. If you can. Otherwise you're doomed to be fooled by numbers. Again, and again, and again... Point is, your article doesn't mention the other necessary key figure; namely what percentage of the surfaces we typically encounter are contaminated.
