The Left Has Weaponized COVID

2021 August 6
by bc3b

Like everything else, the Democrats and their media allies are working to weaponize COVID.

If you listen to Joe Biden and CNN, COVID  is enjoying a resurgence because rednecks in fly over states are refusing to “take the jab.” It conveniently ignores the fact that only 30% of blacks and 42% of Hispanics are vaccinated.

Trump rallies and other conservative gatherings are “super spreader” events. Gigantic Black Lives Matter protests aren’t.

But, the biggest thing the media refuses to report is the effect of millions of illegal aliens crossing into the country from third world nations with poor health conditions. Conservative commentator Clay Travis makes the point that while his entire family had to be tested for COVID prior to reentering the US following a Mexican vacation, illegals come into the US unchecked. And even illegals with COVID symptoms are bussed or flown into the interior of the country, usually without informing local officials.

Andrew Cuomo is likely going to be removed as governor, not because he caused the death of 15,000 seniors in nursing homes, but because of #me too accusations. In fact, the Department of (In)Justice has declined to investigate COVID-related nursing home deaths in New York, Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

A mayor on the Texas-Mexico border is slamming Joe Biden and his state’s federal lawmakers after he was forced to declare a disaster over the surging number of migrants infected with COVID being released into his city.

In a video posted to Facebook Wednesday, McAllen Mayor Javier Villalobos fumed at the White House after 1,500 migrants tested positive for COVID out of 7,000 left in his city by Border Patrol last week.

The city commission voted on Tuesday to set up emergency tents to house the overflow of migrants, but moved it to a county-owned facility further away from residents angry over its location.

Villalobos said the city commission’s decision was something ‘we shouldn’t have to do’ in the first place.

Addressing his citizens the Republican mayor told them ‘I know ya’ll are angry, we get the calls, we get the texts, we get the emails.’

‘Lately we’ve been getting about 1,800 immigrants a day,’ he said. ‘Then, coupled with the fact that 15 percent of the immigrants have COVID, have caused substantial problems to our great city of McAllen.’

Villalobos urged his constituents to not blame local officials or even Governor Greg Abbott for the situation.

‘If you want to place blame, let’s do it,’ he challenged defiantly.

‘Call your president, call your congressman, and call your senators – if you want to place blame, blame them. Place it on the people who are responsible, and that is Washington.’

The Texas Republican is just the latest political leader to criticize the Biden administration over how it’s handled the border.

 In July, 210,000 migrants crossed into the U.S. along the southern border, the highest one-month total in 21 years, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

The number of children traveling alone who were picked up at the border reached an all-time high of more than 19,000 in July, according to preliminary numbers shared with the Associated Press by David Shahoulian, assistant secretary for border and immigration policy at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

‘The rates at which encountered noncitizens are testing positive for COVID-19 have increased significantly in recent weeks,’ Shahoulian said. ‘And although the rate of infection among CBP officers had been declining, this rate recently began increasing again, even though the percentage of officers and agents who have been fully vaccinated has grown significantly since January.’

According to preliminary figures, 210,000 were apprehended in July at the southern border. The chart shows a comparison between apprehensions in 2021 and 2020

    Can’t say I’ve used this site but I love this website. It maps out communities by the most attention on down. I follow all sorts of random bitcoiners I like but probably a good bit of them are useless or distracting.

    This site maps out the #1 persons in each community on down.

    For instance Adam Back is #1 on their list who was one of the first two people to receive emails on the subject.

    Hmmm Biden has made clear he doesn’t care about the border, and the media is parroting his agenda by ignoring it as usual. They even changed the definition of a Doctor for Jill so she could be called Dr Biden.

    I saw her sitting at the Commander-in-chief desk on air force 1 forcing aids and secret service to call her Dr Biden as she sat doing Joe’s work. Zero percent of nurses with doctorates of nursing walk around the hospital calling themselves Doctors just like zero percent of teachers who have doctorates in education go around the grade calling themselves Doctor either. And no one with a history Doctorate goes around asking his neighbors to call him Doctor. Talk about pretentiousness. Most MD’s don’t even go around calling themselves Doctors when they are in a nonwork environment or not at some speaking event or some such.

    EXCEPT… Dr Biden of course.

    And the media even go along with the scam even though they historically had criteria for before she came on the scene.

    Mises Institute: Government “Stimulus” Keeps Having a Diminishing Effect

    https://mises.org/wire/government-stimulus-keeps-having-diminishing-effect

    This article backs up Lacey Hunt’s thesis that government spending is deflationary in and of itself…. at least in governments that have significant debt like 100% debt:GDP ratios.

    You put 1% gov spending in and get 1% increased of government generated GDP growth and then 6 months later you realize you crowded out the private sector with that debt and at this later get date achieve -1.5% growth caused by your crowding out. This is the sugar rush wearing off.

    His thesis has always been that debt itself becomes deflationary in the context of over indebted nations like the Japanese.

    …..and when they need more growth you know what time it is. MOAR spending.

    Interesting interview between Michael Knowles and Jason Whitlock – discuss how Nike controls sports (NFL, NBA and MLB), considers itself a Chinese company and is undermining the US and how the elites prefer the Chi Com business system:

    “… considers itself a Chinese company and is undermining the US and how the elites prefer the Chi Com business system:”

    The question that arises is why would they? As a baseline the CCP could ban Nike tomorrow for any given reason. Just ask Jack Ma, CEO of Alibaba. So what is the draw?

    One might say its price. Labor is always a factor that business favors to minimize labor costs to as small a variable as possible. For China that was true back when Nixon-Kissinger opened up that country to Western business. However that is rapidly disappearing. India and Vietnam have better labor factors than China now for the simple fact that Chinese labor costs have risen as not being the cheapest source anymore.

    So what is it? I would suggest ‘Rockefeller Factor’ is the main driver. In the era when the Trusts were king, the men behind them were at the top of the heap — taller than employees, managers, governors and presidents. Teddy Roosevelt tipped the scales on that, good or ill. But there is a certain draw to being ‘boss’ and the chance to operate in an environment like the Trusts of old plays to the narcissist tendency in many. Narcissists seldom consider the existence of a larger beast capable of swatting them down, aka CCP. As a consequence they go there.

    Really good daily briefing today on RV. Must watch.

    Raoul always come on to do the Friday show.

    https://youtu.be/qee-RGvR-KE

    He talks about a hyperfinancialized world financial market where the asset can never go down bc if they do that upsets the collateral the world uses. If bonds go up, they will do QE or yield curve control. Central banks will keep bailing out assets nonstop and FIAT debasement is the only outlet aka the Ray Dalio argument that “cash is trash.”

    He also talks about a pending slow down in growth and inflation both in q3-4, which will likely be more apparent by sept-oct. This goes along with hedgeye’s forecast and 42 macros. At some point the market will demand more stimmy’s certainly by q4. The entire world economy is basically broken.

    8, guns in OZ, thanks! That’s a lot more nuanced than the stuff we see online.

    17, Cardano, I’m embarrassed to say I don’t know anything about it other than the name. I think there’s an old time guy that is pushing it, Charles Hoskinson or something. So far, I only know about BTC and ETH and have a tiny position in Matic due to my brother researching it.

    Metaphor alert

    https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/fox-steals-mans-newspaper-6-weeks

    Frank Kohn, from Fairfax, Virginia, has had his newspaper stolen regularly by a local fox for the past six weeks, according to a local report.

    NBC4 Washington reported that Kohn’s copies of The Washington Post started disappearing from in front of his home in June.

    Kohn, a wildlife biologist, believed it was an animal right away, so he put a wildlife camera in his front yard to catch the culprit, according to the station.

    Since he put up the camera, Kohn has seen one fox – and occasionally two foxes – taking his paper “almost every morning,” NBC4 reported.

    According to the station, on days the fox doesn’t take the newspaper, the fox moves it or urinates on it.

    But there is a * to that statement.

    * True if you believe that the Fed/Treasury do not act in their own best interests. Sometimes I think Pal believes that there is no counter party action to the Coin space activity. I don’t believe that and neither should you. Monetary provisions slipped into the infrastructure bill are a huge tell what the Banksters are thinking.

    drdog – #58 is a very real concern. I am more concerned with cytokine storm (where the body starts to attack its own cells and tissues rather than just fighting off the virus). Having the vaccine is setting us up for who knows what. I am waiting to see what this flu season brings (may not be a happy ending for some people).

    Good to know: reported ground truth in Israel

    @RanIsraeli
    “95% of the severe patients are vaccinated”.
    “85-90% of the hospitalizations are in Fully vaccinated people.”
    “We are opening more and more COVID wards.”
    “The effectiveness of the vaccine is waning/fading out”

    If this holds true and is verified, this is looking more and more like ADE

    ADE is … not good.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibody-dependent_enhancement
    Antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE), sometimes less precisely called immune enhancement or disease enhancement, is a phenomenon in which binding of a virus to suboptimal antibodies enhances its entry into host cells

    The phenomenon of ADE may be observed when a person who has previously been infected with one serotype of the dengue virus becomes infected months or years later with a different serotype. In such cases, the clinical course of the disease is more severe

    From a Lee Rockwell article:
    In my May 2020 interview above with Robert Kennedy Jr., he summarized the history of coronavirus vaccine development, which began in 2002, following three consecutive SARS outbreaks. By 2012, Chinese, American and European scientists were working on SARS vaccine development, and had about 30 promising candidates.

    Of those, the four best vaccine candidates were then given to ferrets, which are the closest analogue to human lung infections. In the video below, which is a select outtake from my full interview, Kennedy explains what happened next. While the ferrets displayed robust antibody response, which is the metric used for vaccine licensing, once they were challenged with the wild virus, they all became severely ill and died.

    The same thing happened when they tried to develop an RSV vaccine in the 1960s. RSV is an upper respiratory illness that is very similar to that caused by coronaviruses. At that time, they had decided to skip animal trials and go directly to human trials.

    “They tested it on I think about 35 children, and the same thing happened,” Kennedy said. “The children developed a champion antibody response — robust, durable. It looked perfect [but when] the children were exposed to the wild virus, they all became sick. Two of them died. They abandoned the vaccine. It was a big embarrassment to FDA and NIH.”

    This is from a 2020 article so no guarantee the numbers are still correct, but this suggests a common sense way to look at whether vaxxing is right for you. (The embedded 17 through 20 are footnote refs)

    “Ironically, the data17,18,19 we now have no longer support a mass vaccination mandate, considering the lethality of COVID-19 is lower than the flu for those under the age of 60.20 If you’re under the age of 40, your risk of dying from COVID-19 is just 0.01%, meaning you have a 99.99% chance of surviving the infection. And you could improve that to 99.999% if you’re metabolically flexible and vitamin D replete.”

    Good. Someone needed to do this.

    A George Mason University law professor with naturally acquired immunity from COVID has filed a lawsuit demanding an exemption from a policy that requires employees get the COVID vaccine or face numerous sanctions.

    The nonprofit New Civil Liberties Alliance filed the complaint Tuesday on behalf of Antonin Scalia Law School Professor Todd Zywicki. It alleges that the public university’s vaccine policy violates Zywicki’s right to privacy and due process, among other claims.

    GMU spokesperson Robin Parker told The College Fix on Wednesday the university “has no comment on the ongoing litigation.”

    Jenin Younes, an attorney representing the professor, told The College Fix on Wednesday that as far as she knows this may be the first lawsuit in which a person with naturally acquired COVID immunity has sued their employer over a vaccine mandate.

    45 – Pretty funny, friend of my recently was talking about looking for property in Europe, never mind why exactly. She asked if I had any country I would recommend, I said there was only really 2 places that came to mind short of wanting to be able to bug-out by sea, Switzerland (and good luck ever getting citizenship), and Hungry because in the last decade they’re one of if not the only ones showing sanity, and they’re on my short list of 2-3 that might be the next bounce from the EU. She said she had the same thought but wanted to be able to bug-out by sea if needed. Oh well, told her Russia’s starting to look a lot better than most that aren’t in that list of two, she laughed and said, yeah I know.
