COVID-19, Propaganda, And The Church Lady

Permalink 07/06/20 20:41, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, In real life, On the web, Politics, Strange_News

Often times I come across stories that I can't believe. Stories that have silly misspellings, or worse, no basis in fact at all.

This is one of those stories. In this story you will find propaganda used to plant ideas into the reader's mind.

To start with the article seems to be a normal work, listing findings related to DNA, COVID-19, and the severity of one's symptoms.

A stretch of DNA linked to Covid-19 was passed down from Neanderthals 60,000 years ago, according to a new study.

Scientists don’t yet know why this particular segment increases the risk of severe illness from the coronavirus. But the new findings, which were posted online on Friday and have not yet been published in a scientific journal, show how some clues to modern health stem from ancient history.

“This interbreeding effect that happened 60,000 years ago is still having an impact today,” said Joshua Akey, a geneticist at Princeton University who was not involved in the new study.

This piece of the genome, which spans six genes on Chromosome 3, has had a puzzling journey through human history, the study found. The variant is now common in Bangladesh, where 63 percent of people carry at least one copy. Across all of South Asia, almost one-third of people have inherited the segment.

Elsewhere, however, the segment is far less common. Only 8 percent of Europeans carry it, and just 4 percent have it in East Asia. It is almost completely absent in Africa.

Then the article switches to something that’s completely ridiculous! It starts talking about social inequality. Notice the mention of “systemic racism” when mentioning The United States.

Social inequality matters, too. In the United States, Black people are far more likely than white people to become severely ill from the coronavirus, for example, most likely due in part to the country’s history of systemic racism. It has left Black people with a high rate of chronic diseases such as diabetes, as well as living conditions and jobs that may increase exposure to the virus.

Genes play a role as well. Last month, researchers compared people in Italy and Spain who became very sick with Covid-19 to those who had only mild infections. They found two places in the genome associated with a greater risk. One is on Chromosome 9 and includes ABO, a gene that determines blood type. The other is the Neanderthal segment on Chromosome 3.

But these genetic findings are being rapidly updated as more people infected with the coronavirus are studied. Just last week, an international group of scientists called the Covid-19 Host Genetics Initiative released a new set of data downplaying the risk of blood type. “The jury is still out on ABO,” said Mark Daly, a geneticist at Harvard Medical School who is a member of the initiative.

The article then states, "Genes play a role as well." Genes play the largest role. You can't judge a group of people based on the assumption that they are all starting from a point generally poor health. To assume that most African Americans have poor health, which the article does, is racist.

This all comes down to one thing in the end. The use of the term "systemic racism" is planted into the story to suggest that people associate racism with issues, which under normal circumstances, would never be. It's about training people to think a certain way. To associate disease with racism. Which is absurd, and in itself... well... actually racist.

This article is the literary version of Dana Carvey's SNL character The Church Lady. Instead of seeing Satan behind everything, it's racism.

ZeroHedge and The Federalist To Be Banned From Google's Advertising Platform!

Permalink 06/16/20 21:22, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, Background, In real life, On the web, Politics, Strange_News, Elections

The Real Thought Police are here, Google is their latest tool.

I'm adding this snip from the NBC website before they remove the part about the racist content originating from the comment section.

I knew this was coming. It was just a matter of time. Google wants to hit websites with views that skew from the current MSM narrative --financially. Notice that the NBC story is mentioning the comments section --not the content news articles. This is a strategic move.

Google has banned ZeroHedge, a far-right website that often traffics in conspiracy theories, from its advertising platform over policy violations found in the comments section of stories about recent Black Lives Matter protests.

Google also issued a warning on Tuesday to The Federalist over comments on articles related to recent protests.

A Google spokesperson said in an email on Monday that it demonetized the websites after determining they violated its policies on content related to race.

“We have strict publisher policies that govern the content ads can run on and explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing," the spokesperson wrote. "When a page or site violates our policies, we take action. In this case, we’ve removed both sites’ ability to monetize with Google.”

After publication of this story, Google backtracked Tuesday, clarifying that The Federalist had been warned about policy violations but still had time to address them. It now has three days to remove the violations before a ban goes into effect.

Now for the strategic part. How hard is going to be for the leftist trolls to visit conservative leaning websites and post a bunch of racist comments? This will be the new norm. Of course, Google will be right there to label any news site with racist comments as inherently racist. Then Google can hit them in the pocketbook for posting stories against the MSM narrative. That's the plan, I guarantee it.

UPDATE: Why Are The COVID-19 Models So Far From Reality?

Permalink 04/16/20 18:03, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: News, Background, In real life, On the web, Politics, Health Care, Strange_News, U.S. Economy

Science, like any industry, is money driven. A lot of scientists want to be the "first" to publish something. This leads to a lot of shoddy work, and ridiculous conclusions. A perfect example is eggs. Remember about 20 years ago they had all of those articles that said eggs were high in cholesterol and bad for you based on "first of it's kind" research. Then about 5 years later there was followup research that completely disproved the previous research. Now we know that eggs are great for you and are full of everything the human body needs.

I believe the same thing happened with the models for the COVID-19 virus. The early models were wildly inaccurate, but they made the headlines didn't they? Once the statistician who pumped out these numbers received recognition, they'll be sure receive funding. Never mind that their models are deeply flawed. These inaccuracies can usually be explained away in another 5 years, after most people have forgotten about the original research. But these models are being challenged in a very short amount of time and this time with the actual raw data. The COVID-19 outbreak is exposing a serious moral hazard in the scientific community, money, not science.

One Israeli professor eludes to this here.

While the American policies remain less restrictive than those of Israel, it is important to understand the origins of our own “mass hysteria” response. President Trump urged a strong coronavirus response after consulting with Dr. Fauci and his team, who relied on a British model predicting 2.2 million deaths in the United States and 500,000 deaths in the U.K. But that model was developed by Professor Neil Ferguson, who had a history of wildly overestimating death rates through his prediction models. Professor Ferguson was not known for his reliability, and his 2001 disease model was criticized as “not fit for purpose” after it predicted that up to 150,000 people could die in the U.K. from mad cow disease (177 deaths to date). Ferguson’s U.K. coronavirus deaths prediction is now down to 20,000 people, 4% of the original prediction.

Professor Neil Ferguson has a history of being wildly inaccurate. But he was definitely good at getting published because of his sensationalism! I'm sure you guys remember Mad Cow Disease, there was a big scare about that as well. Nobody remembers the wild numbers that Ferguson put out there. That's how these people normally get away with these totally ridiculous predictions. The numbers are so wildly inaccurate, you could have just made them up and been closer.

Now we have official government policy based on these ridiculous numbers. We have caused years worth of damage to the US economy for nothing. The article referenced above explains how the virus has run almost the exact same course in each of the countries it has impacted --regardless of the measures used to mitigate the response. Yitzhak Ben Israel has no answer for how the virus curves have been so similar. But I do, I think COVID-19 has been here since at least October of last year. Mitigation efforts will have little effect if the virus has already spread all over the country --while nobody was looking for it! That's why I think the curves are so similar. The virus had already spread all over the world before anyone started testing for it.

UPDATE:

At least one person agrees with my reasoning, Dr. Luc Montagnier.

We knew that the Chinese version of how the coronavirus emerged was increasingly under attack, but here’s a thesis that tells a completely different story about the Covid-19 pandemic, which is already responsible for more than 110,000 deaths worldwide. According to Professor Luc Montagnier, winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008 for “discovering” HIV as the cause of the AIDS epidemic together with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, the SARS-CoV-2 is a virus that was manipulated and accidentally released from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, in the last quarter of 2019. According to Professor Montagnier, this laboratory, known for its work on coronaviruses, tried to use one of these viruses as a vector for HIV in the search for an AIDS vaccine!

In a challenging question Dr Jean-François Lemoine inferred that the coronavirus under investigation may have come from a patient who is otherwise infected with HIV. No, “says Luc Montagnier,” in order to insert an HIV sequence into this genome, molecular tools are needed, and that can only be done in a laboratory.

According to the 2008 Nobel Prize for Medicine, a plausible explanation would be an accident in the Wuhan laboratory. He also added that the purpose of this work was the search for an AIDS vaccine.

This makes sense. The number of people who are infected with COVID-19 doesn't add up with the virus getting here in January or February 2020.

Consider this. When you look at the numbers of people who contract COVID-19 those who have severe symptoms are a small percentage. Of those people with severe symptoms, the number of people that actually require hospitalization is even lower. It appears that COVID-19 could have been released accidentally from the Chinese lab in Wuhan. This could have happened without anyone knowing until so many people were infected that the number of people with severe symptoms requiring hospitalization became noticeably high. Otherwise, like the rest of the world, the Chinese would just assume it was another bad flu season.

More evidence to support my conclusion.

Pay attention to the "cases and deaths per 100,000 people."

WHOLE TEXT Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act / CARES Act

Permalink 03/29/20 08:49, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: News, Background, In real life, On the web, Politics, Health Care, Stimulus Spending

Here is a link to the entire text of the "CARES Act" from Congress.gov. This bill is a government bail out. More than help the American people, it helps government pet projects. Why do so many government institutions require Coronavirus relief? Wouldn't it be cheaper to just keep paying government employees during the lock-down period? Of course it would, that's how you know that this is just a slush fund for government institutions.

Here's the vote lowdown...

I suggest scrolling through it from the bottom. Because that's where all the goodies are.

(COVID-19) Wuhan Virus - Payroll Tax Relief For 2020, Why It Will NEVER Happen

Permalink 03/13/20 17:22, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, Fun, In real life, On the web, Politics, Health Care, Stimulus Spending, Elections

I would really like to have a payroll tax relief for the entire year. That would be a really good thing for the economy, but a very bad thing for politicians.

Remember when The FairTax was being discussed? The problem is that most people don't actually know what they pay in taxes. It's like the gas tax in any given state. What is the gas tax rate? It's hard to find, it isn't listed on your receipt when you buy fuel. That's by design, that way it can be manipulated, and people won't know what their tax rate is. It can be changed without a vote.

If Trump was to successfully suspend the payroll tax for the rest of the year, people would wake up! They would see the weekly difference in their pay as it relates to taxes. That's the ONLY reason a tax relief package of that type will never make it to Trump's desk. Payroll tax relief has as much chance of passing as The FairTax does, or did.
