Are the Global Scientific Elite Trying to Bury the Truth About the Origin of COVID-19?

October 4, 2020

There may be some culpability involved, but the huge resistance being mounted by the international scientific elite, the media and vested financial interests against conducting an objective analysis of the origin of the COVID-19 virus is primarily about money.

If it would be determined that the COVID-19 pandemic resulted from a laboratory leak of a genetically engineered virus, it would not only disrupt the flow of huge sums of research funding, but adversely affect the investments of those vehemently opposed to President Donald Trump’s efforts to make the U.S. economy less dependent on China and, therefore, make the U.S. less vulnerable to Chinese geopolitical blackmail.

There is growing scientific evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic may have resulted from a vaccine development project gone wrong.

Live-attenuated vaccines are a type of vaccine used for smallpox and childhood diseases like measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox, in which a weakened or “attenuated” form of the virus that causes the disease is manufactured.

Because such vaccines are so similar to the natural infection that they help prevent, they create a strong and long-lasting, even lifetime immune response.

Live-attenuated virus vaccines must possesscertain characteristics to be safe and effective.

They must have lower virulence and replication capability than the natural pathogenic form of the virus, but be able to induce a pronounced immune response.

Of additional importance is that the live-attenuated virus vaccines should clear quickly from the body and not revert or mutate back to the natural pathogenic form.

To fulfill those characteristics, certain modifications providing protection strategies, or “circuit breakers,” must be engineered into the viral genome, which are also potential markers of artificial manipulation.

An ad hoc group of scientific investigators known as DRASTIC have compiled a 36-point list to buttress their claim that the COVID-19 virus could have originated in a vaccine development program.

For example, a central mechanism for controlling immune responses is mediated by interferons. The COVID-19 virus seems to have some signatures in its genome which indicate interferon hypersensitivity compared to the coronavirus responsible for the 2002-2003 pandemic.

Another indication that the COVID-19 virus may have been the product of an attempt to produce a live-attenuated virus vaccine is the accumulation of “synonymous mutations” in the spike protein compared to RaTG13, which the global scientific elite claim is the nearest bat coronavirus relative.

The artificial accumulation of synonymous mutations has been described as one method of producing live-attenuated virus vaccines by “deoptimizing” the genetic code and inhibiting replication.

The most striking indication of genetic manipulation of the COVID-19 virus is the presence of the furin polybasic cleavage site, which does not exist in any closely-related bat coronavirus yet identified.

Given its role in the virus-cell or cell-cell membrane fusion process, the DRASTIC team suggests that the insertion of the furin polybasic cleavage site may have been related to a high-risk attempt to produce an intranasal “self-spreading” vaccine spray.

“Self-spreading vaccines are essentially genetically engineered viruses designed to move through populations in the same way as infectious diseases, but rather than causing disease, they confer protection.”

Obviously, much could go wrong using such an approach.

To avoid the scientific equivalent of the Russia collusion hoax, the Trump Administration should not rely on the international scientific elite, the media and vested financial interests to shape the debate, but should appoint an independent and objective task force to determine the true origin of the COVID-19 virus.

Given the power of genetic engineering and the enormous danger when it is recklessly applied, the stakes are just too high not to address this issue honestly and directly.

Vote your Faith — Biblical Values

Buckle up folks it’s close to election day. Less than 2 months till V-Day. Fake news will be out in abundance trying to scrub Biden’s record and to tarnish or lie about President Trump. Be aware and take all that into consideration as the news cycle churns.

I will be posting several short thoughts on voting. I never tell anyone who to vote for, but we need facts not taking points. My way of voting is simple and it involves voting Biblical Values. As a Christian that is my only way to make a moral conservative approach to candidates. Going to be a fun ride.

The United States’ policy is crystal clear: The South China Sea is not China’s maritime empire. If Beijing violates international law and free nations do nothing, history shows the CCP will simply take more territory. China Sea disputes must be resolved through international law.

Trump orders voting districts to exclude people in U.S. illegallyWASHINGTON/NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – President Donald Trump signed a memorandum on Tuesday that would prevent migrants who are in the United States illegally from being counted when U.S. congressional voting districts are next redrawn, triggering swift rebukes from Democrats and at least one promise of litigation.U.S. census experts and lawyers say the action is legally dubious, and not easily executed in practice. In theory, it could benefit Trump’s Republican Party by eliminating the largely non-white population of migrants in the United States illegally, creating voting districts that skew more Caucasian.It could also cause populous states with large immigrant contingents to lose seats in the 435-member U.S. House of Representatives, including big left-leaning states like California – currently with 53 seats – and New York, with 27.The process of drawing voting maps for federal congressional districts is known as apportionment.“Including these illegal aliens in the population of the state for the purpose of apportionment could result in the allocation of two or three more congressional seats than would otherwise be allocated,” the memo said.Redistricting, in which voting districts are redrawn to reflect changes in the population, is next slated for 2021, after the results of the 2020 U.S. census are in.Each state will be given a share of the 435 congressional seats based on population. Historically, the distribution of seats has been based on total population, regardless of immigration status. Trump’s memo would exclude those not in the U.S. legally.RELATED COVERAGETrump signs memo aimed at excluding illegal migrants from redrawn districtsU.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, said in a statement the measure was “unlawful” and was “designed to again inject fear and distrust into vulnerable and traditionally undercounted communities, while sowing chaos with the Census.”‘WHOLE NUMBER OF PERSONS’From a legal standpoint, the move is far from a slam-dunk.Proponents of citizens-only voting districts argue each vote should carry the same weight. If one district has far fewer eligible voters than another, they say, each vote there has more influence on election outcomes.But, while the U.S. Supreme Court has left the door open for citizen-based voting maps for state legislatures, experts see it as a long shot at the federal congressional level.That is because the U.S. Constitution explicitly says congressional districts must be based on “the whole number of persons” in each district, as counted in each decennial U.S. census.Dale Ho, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, vowed litigation, saying in a statement, “We’ll see him in court, and win,” referring to the president.Vanita Gupta, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, said Trump was “trying to scare” undocumented people from participating in the ongoing 2020 census.In the memo, Trump said the word “persons” “has never been understood to include … every individual physically present within a state’s boundaries.”In fact it has, census experts say: Multiple federal laws have reinforced that apportionment must include everyone, and U.S. Supreme Court precedent has endorsed that view, said Joshua Geltzer, a constitutional law expert and professor at Georgetown Law.‘ANTI-GRAVITY’Some see the order as mainly theater – especially because it is unclear how Trump would gather the data necessary to identify – and exclude – people in the United States illegally.In 2019, the president signed an executive order calling on states to provide his administration with government records, such as driver’s license databases, that could be used to determine the non-citizen population. Other surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau provide estimates of the non-citizen population.But those data are incomplete and unreliable, demographers have argued.“There is no count,” said Justin Levitt, a professor at Loyola Law School, in Los Angeles, and former U.S. Department of Justice official under then-President Barack Obama, a Democrat.“It’s as if (Trump) has ordered the National Basketball Association commissioner to implement rules for the use of anti-gravity boots,” Levitt said. “(The commissioner) says anti-gravity boots shall be permitted or shall not be permitted — but they don’t exist.”Trump’s memorandum could prove popular with the president’s base as he tries to generate enthusiasm for his re-election in November, Levitt said.Trump has spent much of his presidency seeking to limit the number of migrants who illegally enter the United States.His past efforts to use the U.S. census to identify and limit the political power of undocumented immigrants have faced roadblocks.In 2018, the administration said it would ask respondents to the 2020 census whether they were citizens, a move ultimately nixed by the Supreme Court.Following the defeat, Trump issued an executive order in July 2019 aiming to determine citizenship status through a trove of administrative records. The order is still facing litigation from immigration advocates including the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund.Reporting by Nick Brown and Mica Rosenberg in New York, and Mimi Dwyer in Los Angeles.; Additional reporting by Richard Cowan and Alexandra Alper in Washington and Kristina Cooke in Los Angeles; Editing by Ross Colvin, Matthew Lewis and Jonathan OatisOur Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles

Over the past weeks, we have been endlessly inundated with the same three words: “Black Lives Matter.” We hear them every day, on every media platform. Those words are spray-painted on buildings, streets and monuments across the country. We’ve also witnessed a parade of elite corporations vocally and financially supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

Their rhetoric is lofty and touching, but contradicted by their actions. As Johnny Burtka, the Executive Director of The American Conservative, pointed out on the Tucker Carlson Show: these companies have not lifted a finger to actually help or create jobs for the people they claim to support.

It may be a cliche, but if Black Lives really mattered, and not just a political slogan, the poverty and helplessness in black communities would be addressed. Instead of burning the communities down they would try to protect them. Instead of sitting back and watching there would be an effort to save black lives in Chicago and other cities where black on black violence occurs regularly. What about closing abortion clinics in black neighborhoods. More black babies are aborted in New York than births. All Lives Matter

Last paragraph is MY commentary.

Independence Day

Freedom is not free. Freedom always cost people something. We may not have to fight a war physically or put on battle gear to keep or sustain our freedom. I believe the real battle that we find in America is simply a battle of ideas. You see today we are in a philosophical Civil War. The future will be determined by our response to our present situation. We must somehow stand firm on the ideas and the principles that this nation was founded on and we must learn to educate others to the greatness and the sovereignty of this great nation. We are a most unusual country in this world, we are the first on the scene of every tragedy, disaster, and war. Our goal is never to take an inch of soil but only to proclaim and procure freedom and justice for the oppressed. We are a beacon of light in a dark world. Long live the United States of America. May God bless this nation.
