🗞*WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
🔬 I decided to re-run this item from yesterday’s supporter bonus edition, since it’s such an important story. Apologies to re-readers.
The Encyclopedia Galactica reports that there is a planet in the distant galaxy inhabited by the Universe’s stupidest civilized race, the Ch’kkukolaitans. They don’t have nations, because they’ve all forgotten exactly where they’re from. They just sort of wander around in a Biden-like daze. Over the last thousand years, they’ve completely lost their worldwide civilization three times, but they are so moronic that the survivors didn’t even realize it was gone, so society accidentally came back — twice.
But public health experts in this country are even dumber than the Ch’kkukolaitans. Encyclopedia Galactica will have to update that entry.
Let’s have a little thought experiment. Try to imagine the dumbest thing the public health experts could do at this point. Allow that the PHE folks do stupid stuff all the time, so you have to thing big. No, BIGGER. Think even dumber than whatever you’re thinking right now. The DUMBEST POSSIBLE thing.
On Friday, BioRxIV naively published a blandly-named study titled “Role of spike in the pathogenic and antigenic behavior of SARS-CoV-2 BA.1 Omicron.” There are 23 scientists credited with helping create the study, and the acknowledgements identify it was funded by a major grant from the NIH/NIAID.
The study provides a detailed, step-by-step recipe for how to genetically enhance the Omicron virus to make it vaccine-resistant, lung-penetrable, and 80% lethal.
They didn’t even wait till the first pandemic was over! They’re so excited for a doomsday virus, and so impatient with Mother Nature, that they are going to just manufacture it themselves, through gain-of-function research that should be so toxic it gets you hounded out of your career and driven into a life of humiliating obscurity. Not published.
Think I’m exaggerating? Here’s how the researchers described their work:
We generated chimeric recombinant SARS-CoV-2 encoding the S gene of Omicron in the backbone of an ancestral SARS-CoV-2 isolate and compared this virus with the naturally circulating Omicron variant. The Omicron S-bearing virus robustly escapes vaccine-induced humoral immunity, mainly due to mutations in the receptor binding motif (RBM), yet unlike naturally occurring Omicron, efficiently replicates in cell lines and primary-like distal lung cells. In K18-hACE2 mice, while Omicron causes mild, non-fatal infection, the Omicron S-carrying virus inflicts severe disease with a mortality rate of 80%.
These mad scientists and generous government grant-approvers know better than anyone that we JUST went through a global pandemic almost certainly caused by a virus that was produced by gain of function research to “enhance” its transmissibility and pathogenicity, which LEAKED OUT OF A LAB. And they know it’s been illegal to conduct gain of function research in the U.S. since the Obama Administration.
Why, oh why, are these criminals, I mean scientists, still allowed to tinker around with this kind of explosive material? Why haven’t we ALREADY passed laws criminalizing ALL gain of function research? Seriously. Gain of function research merits the death penalty or something, no appeals. And WHY is the government still PAYING FOR gain of function research, or whatever obtuse euphemism they are using these days to disguise the fact that it’s ‘gain of function research’?
Have we learned NOTHING from the Wuhan lab leak?
Hey, lawmakers: LABS LEAK!! This is the kind of lesson we really, really don’t need to learn again. Pretty please.
How about, instead of paying scientists millions to cook up civilization-ending viruses, we could invest those resources in tracking down rogue terrorists cooking up bugs in garage labs and stuff. We should be finding those people and blowing them to Kingdom Come. Don’t even knock. But, in this case, thanks to our witless ‘health agencies,’ we — taxpayers! — are funding our own destruction.
You’ve GOT to be kidding me. Please tell me I’m dreaming all this.
The preprint study carefully and methodically walks the reader through exactly how the scientists created the ultra-lethal covid variant, step by step, right down to describing the make and model of the incubator, the names and serial numbers of the human cell lines, and the brand of centrifuge. It’s a flipping recipe. Anybody could follow it.
Hello! We’re now about two seconds away from midnight on the Doomsday clock. If we aren’t even smart enough to stop GAIN OF FUNCTION RESEARCH after what the entire world just went through, then we should grudgingly accept the title from the Ch’kkukolaitans, who’ll be relieved to lose their status as the Universe’s most imbecilic civilization.
And, this is just ONE study. If they’re paying for THIS kind of research, imagine what ELSE the government must be funding, scads of other projects described only in obscure, densely-worded grant proposals buried deep in the NIH’s sub-basement file cabinets.
Sometimes I’m convinced we are literally sprinting toward the apocalypse, at the speed of science. All those horrible afflictions in the Book of the Revelation, the terrible boils and deadly plagues and stuff? I’m starting to believe that those aren’t caused by God. I’m starting to believe we’re going to do it to ourselves.
💉 Last month, the Atlantic ran a story headlined, “Did a Famous Doctor’s Covid Shot Make His Cancer Worse?” The sub-headline explains, “A lifelong promoter of vaccines suspects he might be the rare, unfortunate exception.”
Almost exactly one year prior to the article’s publication, Belgian immunologist Michael Goldman, 67, one of Europe’s best-known champions of medical research, rolled up his sleeve at a clinic and gratefully received his covid booster.
He was grateful because he’d just been diagnosed with an early case of lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system. Because Goldman knew he’d have to take immune-suppressing drugs as part of his cancer treatment, he wanted to get his booster fast, while there was still time for it to have an effect.
But after the jab, he quickly started feeling even worse, and more worrisome, his lymph nodes were swelling fast. Three weeks later, he went back to see his cancer doctor (coincidentally, his brother), and both men were astounded that the new scans showed “a brand-new barrage of cancer lesions—so many spots that it looked like someone had set off fireworks inside Michel’s body” — especially in his right armpit and along the right side of his body.
Oddly, the same side where he’d got his third covid shot.
Goldman immediately suspected the vaccine, but he wasn’t sure. He used to run an institute for vaccine-technology research, and he’s been interviewed many times about covid, reassuring the public of the safety of the jabs, and the safety of mRNA vaccines in particular. In December 2020, he told an interviewer that “if there was a real problem with the technology, we’d have seen it before now for sure.”
As he began and continued his cancer treatment, Goldman also was researching HOW there might be a link between the jab and his surging cancer. He finally found a theory, and in November, 2021 published a study titled “Rapid Progression of Angioimmunoblastic T Cell Lymphoma Following BNT162b2 mRNA Vaccine Booster Shot.”
The Atlantic article spends most of its energy emphasizing how Goldman struggled over whether to admit that his cancer got worse because of his jab, and the reporter stressed over and over how rare his syndrome was. The article’s author even puts herself in the story, describing her own struggle over whether to write the piece in the first place, because of her fear that anti-vaxxers would abuse the story.
His cancer is now back under control. These days, according to the Atlantic, Goldman often contemplates the possible connection between his lymphoma flare-up and his covid vaccination. “If it exists, it must be very rare,” he said. But he doesn’t regret going public with his case, saying, “I’m still convinced it was the right thing to do.”
But Goldman admits he’s struggling over whether to take the fourth shot. “I don’t know what I will do,” he told the reporter.
Well. I know what I would do. But Goldman’s an expert, and so he’s baffled.
🚀 In a brilliant effort to de-escalate the risk of global nuclear war, NATO announced that it is starting nuclear drills involving 14 countries and up to 60 aircraft, including B-52 bombers, as early as today. Reuters says the NATO drills will likely to overlap similar Russian nuclear drills which are usually held around this time in late October.
In case you’ve got the wrong idea, NATO emphasized on its website, “The exercise, which runs until 30 October, is a routine, recurring training activity and it is not linked to any current world events.”
So. Just coincidental. Nothing to see here, move along.
💉 Bodybuilder and fitness author Doug Brignole, 63, died suddenly and unexpectedly last Thursday, of “undetermined causes.” He was currently training to guest pose at the AAU Mr. Universe competition scheduled in Las Vegas on October 22nd.
A well-known fitness influencer, Brignole always strongly supported the jabs. In one post advocating for the covid shots, he even dared people to use his reaction as an example:
“I have enough confidence in the vaccine, based on my research, to get it done. Those of you who think the vaccine kills people can use me as a test. If I die, you were right. If I don’t die, and have no ill effects, you were wrong, and should admit it (at least to yourselves).”
Well then. I guess WE were right.
💉 WWE star and Reality TV star Sara Lee, 30, winner of the 2015 “Tough Enough” competition and mother of three young children, died suddenly and unexpectedly on October 6th. The day before Sara died, she posted a message on her Instagram account saying she was celebrating finally being healthy enough to go to the gym two days in a row, after recovering from a “first ever sinus infection [that] kicked my butt.”
No cause of death has been released, nor do we have any information about whether Sara was following Doug Brignole’s medical advice.
💉 Pop singer Brandy Norwood, 43, known as “Brandy,” who sang the National Anthem at the NFL’s NFC Championship this year, was hospitalized after a sudden and unexpected seizure last week at her home.
According to TMZ, Brandy is currently recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after having a seizure. Brandy was reportedly rushed to the hospital on Tuesday night by EMS, but she is anticipated to make a full recovery. We send her love and healing during this time 🙏🏾
The singer updated her social media on Wednesday, saying “To my beloved fam, friends, and starz thank you for sending love and light my way. I am following doctors’ orders and getting the rest I need due to dehydration and low amounts of nutrition. Thank you for your prayers and support. Grateful for you all, see you soon.”
She was seen in public on Saturday, so fortunately she appears to be doing much better.
🔥 Oh dear. Women’s cosmetic maker Ulta stepped in the woke cowpie yesterday when it posted a “podcast” between two unattractive cross-dressers, labeled it “the Joy of Girlhood,” and assured their customers “trans girls can do it all!” With obnoxious claps.
Ulta’s podcast went over like a porcupine at a balloon-stuffed baby shower.
As an aside, between the two men, I think my favorite is the guy with all the facial hair; he’s not JUST trans, he’s identifying as a classic circus sideshow bearded lady, which really takes guts. But you still have to give some props to the skinny one, Dylan Mulvaney, 25. His story is that, since he was “overwhelmed” by the terrifying prospect of coming out as a woman, he decided to start by identifying as a teen “girl,” so that he can experience the joys of girlhood before becoming a lady. Hence the interview.
The gals were having none of it. Calls for a boycott immediately ratio’d the edgy Ulta post. FN The general feeling amongst the ladies seems to be that the two men are appropriating femininity through bad costumery:
FN A tweet is “ratio’d” when it gets a lot more comments than likes, showing that the twitter audience really hated the tweet.
This next one, from a self-described feminist, albeit very crass, highlights the level of anger among Ulta’s customers, who are, after all, women who appreciate cosmetics and obviously value femininity.
Get woke, go broke.
But I appreciated conservative commenter Alexandra Lains’ thoughtful comment the most. Among other pointed remarks, Alexandra observed that “girlhood is not a product that you can purchase at the makeup store.”
Indeed. When it went after girlhood, Ulta, which probably thought it would be praised and celebrated for its delightful woke sensitivity, got the sharp end of womanhood instead, right in the eyeball. It feels like Ulta crossed a line somehow, and a lot of regular women finally had enough and are spicily speaking their minds.
Speak up, ladies! Tell us how you REALLY feel.
Have a marvelous Monday! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for more.
