Where Did Covid Come From?

 


Where Did Covid Come From?

Paul Craig Roberts

The focus of the worldwide public’s attention on masks, lockdowns, infection rates, and vaccines serves to prevent any investigation of Covid’s origin.

Did a disease of bats or some other creature mutate so that humans became susceptible?

If so, why was research on how to make pathogens more infectious going on at the University of North Carolina and allegedly at a US military lab and then transferred to Wuhan where it was financed by Fauci at N.I.H.?

Is the justification for this research—to prepare for a pandemic—a cover for covert

Covid Is Not The Threat

 

Paul Craig Roberts

Covid is a real virus.  It is a threat to a small minority of the population—primarily people with poor immune systems and comorbidities.  

There are inexpensive ways of boosting immune systems with supplements, such as zinc, vitimans C and D3, Beta Glucan, and NAC.  But public health officials have not educated the public about the value of supplements in the Covid battle.  The reason is that so-called public health officials are shills for Big Pharma’s profits, and Big Pharma regards good immune systems as a hindrence to profits.

There are also two effective, safe, and inexpensive cures for Covid.  One is the combination of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), azithromycin, and zinc.  The other is the combination of ivermectin, azithromycin, and zinc.  See:  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/11/23/effective-treatment-and-prevention-is-available-for-covid-19/ 

The use of these known cures has been blocked by public health officials, such as Tony Fauci

More about that mother of all lockdowns




BY BRIAN MAHER

A Six-week Lockdown?

Horror succeeds horror… the virus is once again amok.

The United States reported over 145,000 fresh cases Wednesday — a record. We are told daily fatalities near 2,000.

A vaccine is not yet ready. What, then, is to be done?

A four-to-six week national “lockdown” — with little room for escape?

If the man from Delaware seizes the White House… as expected… you may have one.

I wonder what is really the motive in shutting things down Republican counties just before election day, suppress the vote?

 

IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD

FROM SECOND CITY COPPERS


COVID Spreading; Economy Cratering

On the heels of yesterday's post about the spike in Department-wide cases:

  • The Near West Side offices of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7 have been closed because of the coronavirus.

    “Due to COVID-19 related issues, the FOP offices will be closed until further notice,” read a Monday message on the website of FOP Lodge 7, which represents more than 8,000 rank-and-file Chicago police officers.

Coincidentally, the "positivity rate" is going up in Illinois and is being used by Fatass to further stifle the economy:

  • Roughly a third of Illinois’ 102 counties and a quarter of its residents soon will be living under stricter rules aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus as the state attempts to rein in a resurgent pandemic.

    Starting Friday, indoor service at bars and restaurants will be prohibited in DuPage, Kane, Will and Kankakee counties, an area that’s home to more than 1 in 6 Illinois residents, Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Tuesday.

    While the governor lamented that the rollback was needed, restaurant owners worried the latest wave of restrictions would make it even more difficult to stay in business as winter looms and outdoor dining becomes less of an option.

We seem to recall this being predicted here by many readers, right around Election Day in fact. Imagine that. Anyone want to try to explain why a "positivity rate" necessitates shutdowns? Has the death rate gone up? Hospitals being overrun? People dying in the streets?

Here's an tidbit that will send HQ into a tizzy:

  • one of us had it, here, at SCC 

You know what? We were miserable. For three days. And after that, we felt better, resumed a normal routine, and returned to work after a couple weeks off. That's it. 

But there's Groot and Fatass attempting to drive the economy into the ground once and for all:

  • Chicago’s convention industry, one of the city’s major sources of tax revenue, might not return in any significant fashion until 2022, dealing a prolonged financial blow to the city as it struggles to make up a $1.2 billion budget shortfall.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot is scheduled to present her plan to close the city’s budget deficit Wednesday, which might include increases to property and gas taxes, as well as city worker layoffs.

    With COVID-19 cases on the rise again and business and international air travel depressed, trade show organizers continue to examine plans for next year. Already, eight shows scheduled at McCormick Place through April have been canceled, and one has been rescheduled for later in 2021.

How soon until Fatass starts shutting down election sites?

Chicago to ease capacity restrictions on restaurants, allow drinking inside bars


The changes, taking effect Thursday, also increase the size of exercises classes and after-school programs to 15, up from 10. And salon services that require removing a mask, such as facials and shaves, will be allowed.

Restaurants will be able to serve more customers indoors, and people can once again go drinking inside bars, under relaxed rules announced by the city on Monday.

Indoor seating at Chicago restaurants had been limited to 25% of capacity. When the new rules take effect

When Politicians Panicked

The Biggest Crime Against Humanity in Two Centuries

Now John Tamny, the libertarian star of Forbes’Real Clear Markets, has unleashed a devastating tract, to be published as soon as possible, entitled When Politicians Panicked: The New Coronavirus, Expert Opinion, and a Tragic Lapse of Reason.
Naming names and describing the endless carnival of outrageous overreach, Tamny vividly shows that Governor Baker is just one of many demented governors reveling in power like a Charlie Chaplin Fuhrer during this mass media madness.
Tamny is not much interested in COVID-19 data, except to dismiss the virus drama as just another epidemic event like scores of others over the centuries. He derides

Eight months after the novel coronavirus burst out of Wuhan, China, it has created unprecedented economic and social disruption, with economies cratering across the globe and more destruction to come. Tens of millions have lost their jobs, and millions more have seen their life savings disappear as governments forced restaurants, bars and other small businesses to shut their doors.

Does Trump know this?

Dr. Honjo

Japanese professor of physiology or medicine, Professor Dr Tasuku Honjo, caused a sensation today in the media by saying that the corona virus is not natural. if it is natural, it will not have affected the whole world like that. Because, depending on the nature, the temperature is different in different countries. if it were natural, it would only have affected countries with the same temperature as China. instead, it spreads to a country like Switzerland, the same way it spreads to desert areas. whereas if it were natural, it would have spread in cold places, but would have died in hot places.

No more shutdowns

'YOU CREATE MORE DAMAGE'
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says US ‘can’t shut down the economy again’ if coronavirus has another spike
TREASURY Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Thursday the US should not shut down the economy again if there is another wave of the coronavirus outbreak.

Mnuchin said Americans have "learned that if you shut down the economy, you’re going to create more damage."

He said on CNBC: “Not just economic damage, but there are other areas and we’ve talked about this: medical problems and everything else that get put on hold."

“We can’t shut down the economy again."

Mnuchin said he thinks President Donald Trump made the right call when he urged state governors to ease coronavirus restrictions.

"I think it was very prudent what the president did, but I think we’ve learned a lot.”

The treasury secretary said that, even if the US sees more coronavirus cases, it won't be necessary to impose tough restrictions now that testing and contact tracing programs are now in place.

A Reuters analysis released this week showed 21 states have seen spikes in coronavirus cases as businesses have started reopening.

On Monday, a committee with the National Bureau of Economic Research determined the US economy entered a recession in February as the coronavirus pandemic hit the country.

The economists said that employment, income, and spending peaked in February and then dropped sharply afterward as the viral outbreak shut down businesses across the country.

It marked the start of the downturn after nearly 11 full years of economic growth.

“The unprecedented magnitude of the decline in employment and production, and its broad reach across the entire economy, warrants the designation of this episode as a recession, even if it turns out to be briefer than earlier contractions,” the panel said.

WASHINGTON - The World Health Organization on Tuesday warned of hungry rats roaming the streets of cities throughout the western world, due to so many eating establishments being closed, and urged citizens to make some effort to feed a rat.

Will Americans submit to a 2nd lockdown?

Reopen Illinois protesters rally again

Despite the grim figures, a vocal contingent of demonstrators rallied again outside the Thompson Center in the Loop and the State Capitol Building in Springfield demanding Pritzker reopen the state immediately.

With a roster of conservative speakers including radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller, people in the crowd chanted “Right to go to church” and toted signs declaring “Jesus is my vaccine,” a day before a handful of churches planned to hold services in defiance of Pritzker’s stay-at-home order, which bars gatherings of more than 10 people.

Other signs declared “Freedom is essential” and suggested Pritzker’s extended stay-at-home order is part of a political scheme to subvert President Donald Trump’s reelection effort.

“They said this was all about flattening the curve. I think we flattened the curve,” Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider said. “These are the snarky things he says: ‘This is all about science... and the peak isn’t going to hit until the middle of June.’ Why did they take down all the beds in McCormick Place already then?

“You know what this is all about. This is about taking down President Trump in November,” Schneider said.

A concurrent protest was held outside the State Capitol in Springfield.

Connie Unger, one of the several protesters at the downstate rally who carried a “Fire Pritzker” sign, said the Democratic governor has “overstepped his boundaries” with his stay-at-home orders.

“He is against our state, he has another motive and I don’t believe that he is a true patriot,” Unger said. “His motive is to be the most liberal governor so that he can run for a higher office.”Pritzker has said most Illinoisans have been following his guidelines, and has framed the protesters as “outliers.”


“Today, as millions of Illinoisans followed the public health guidance in place to keep everyone safe, a loud minority gathered in an attempt to get headlines for their hateful, ignorant, anti-Semitic protest against science,” Pritzker spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh said in an email. “We know the majority of Illinoisans who remain vigilant in this fight against COVID-19 are the reason we’re flattening the curve and those gathering in defiance of the medical experts have them to thank for their health and safety.”
