West railed against a COVID-19 vaccine saying he believes it is the mark of the beast, a symbol of opposition to God noted in the Book of Revelation. He condemned Planned Parenthood and believes it is the tool of white supremacists to do the “Devil’s work.”
No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

Samantha Shader is accused of hurling a Molotov cocktail at an NYPD van full of police during a George Floyd protest, and she claimed a trio of “black” strangers made her do it. Prosecutors say the bottle failed to ignite because she used toilet paper instead of a rag as the fuse. The facts do not support her story.
The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]
The new classification of ‘probable cases’ includes 15 possible ways to be counted as a COVID-19 patient without ever taking a lab test. Anyone who had contact with a COVID-19 patient and has two symptoms can be considered a probable COVID-19 case and could be quarantined for 14 days.

House Bill 2502 that would give the director of the State Department of Health the power to declare a health emergency if authorized by the governor.

Places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower. A choir practice without masks was blamed for an acute outbreak of coronavirus in Washington State in March.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
In a free country, citizens do not have the right to use force against their neighbors to prevent them from selling their products below cost – even if their intent is to force competitors out of business. If we do not have that authority as individuals, we cannot delegate it to politicians to do it either, regardless of how much we may like the idea. Therefore, there should be no anti-trust laws, but there CAN and SHOULD be laws against favoring one company or consortium of companies over their competitors, which creates monopolies.
