CBS using video/photos from 2016 for a COVID-related mystery illness story

These people are simply evil. There is no longer any need to grant them the benefit of the doubt.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Newsom claims first responders will be the first ones laid off if Trump doesn't give him fed money. So where in the "laid off" hierarchy are bureaucrats, secretaries, and janitorial staff? You're going to lay off firefighters and EMTs, but keep the guys who clean the rest area toilets?

Newsom's just doing what they always do when anyone tries to slow down the revenue stream. They always threaten essential services, and keep mum about whatever drag queen story hour nonsense they could easily cut.

Oh, I agree. I'm just sick of it, from whatever side. These guys all want to always protect their non-essential services, and I don't get how everyone always lets them get away with something so obvious. Even the sheep should be able to see past it.

As a sign of progress, I was able to make the annual physical/Trifexis refill appointment for the dog today.  The vet is back open for business.

Our vet never closed down.  They would come out to the car, get the animal and take 'em in.  After that, they'd bring the animal out to the car - and then you'd go inside to pay   ???

Quote
A judge in Oregon on Monday ruled that Gov. Kate Brown’s coronavirus restrictions were “null and void” after the Democratic lawmaker failed to have her emergency orders approved by the state’s legislature in 28 days.
...
[governor] Brown said she would immediately appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court to try to keep the emergency orders in effect.

Though I see that Oregon has now fined a salon owner $14,000 for opening her shop. Same state that lets antifa run wild.

Get her a decent Gofundme, and she's got a fighting chance in court.  Hell,  I sent the Texas chick $20 as a *expletive deleted*ck you by proxy to the judge that jailed her.

A couple of states have also been slapped down in their restrictions on church services; North Carolina, and I believe Kentucky prior to that.

Our local PD told the pastor of our church they're going to let the health department worry about Covid rules. They're not going to get involved.

"New"

Chinese scientists measured a decline in worldwide fear and panic and as a countermeasure issued new covid 19 updates  :P
The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

Long story short
Youtube video that runs counter to WHO's official narrative on C19 gets flagged and removed. (not the only one)
Producer of the video then gets contacted by the tech reporter for BusinessInsider.Com asking him for comments regarding this. Turns out from other articles, which are basically hit pieces on anyone questioning the official WHO narrative, the reporter is the one who got the video flagged.

video is 14 minutes long.

Well, This is Truly Unbelievable.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/exclusive-virus-researchers-uncover-evidence-implying-covid-19-was-created-in-a-lab

Quote
Lifesite News reports that the scientists “used a version of the novel coronavirus collected in the earliest days of the outbreak and applied computer models to test its capacity to bind to certain cell receptor enzymes, called “ACE2,” that allow the virus to infect human and animal cells to varying degrees of efficacy.”

“They found that “the novel coronavirus most powerfully binds with human ACE2, and with variously lesser degrees of effectiveness with animal versions of the receptor.”

The authors believe this means that the virus “became specialized for human cell penetration by living previously in human cells, quite possibly in a laboratory.”

The Study notes that  “a virus would be expected to have highest affinity for the receptor in its original host species, e.g. bat, with a lower initial binding affinity for the receptor of any new host, e.g. humans. However, in this case, the affinity of SARS-CoV-2 is higher for humans than for the putative original host species, bats, or for any potential intermediary host species.”

Essentially he says they see no evidence of gene splicing or direct manipulation but the same thing could be achieved through natural selection and testing with human tissue over a few years.  And the lab in Wuhan was known to be experimenting with bat coronaviruses.  
Quote
In a separate public statement about the research made by Prof. Petrovsky on April 17, the researcher notes that the results of his study are either "a remarkable coincidence or a sign of human intervention,” and adds that it is “entirely plausible that the virus was created in the biosecurity facility in Wuhan by selection on cells expressing human ACE2, a laboratory that was known to be cultivating exotic bat coronaviruses at the time.”

This last quote is saying they haven't seen a close version of the virus in the animal population and so far China is refusing to participate in such a search which tends to back up the accusations that they already know the origin. 
Quote
Professor Petrovsky told LifeSite in an email interview that his study indicates that “there are some highly unusual features, including optimal human adaptation, that in the absence of identification of a close to identical virus in an animal population from which COVID19 could have arisen, would point in the direction of human intervention at some point in the evolution of COVID19.”

He noted that, so far, researchers in China and elsewhere have not produced evidence of the presence in animals of a virus closely similar to the one that causes COVID-19 in humans, which would give credence to their theory of natural development in an intermediary between bats, which presumably originated the virus, and humans.

As near as I can tell, that great bastion of freedom, the ACLU, has limited their action against all the gross over-reaching government responses to COVID to releasing criminals from jails, making sure women can still kill their babies, and calling for voting by mail this fall.  We are lucky to have them looking out for us.

I was very curious about the certainty that was reported that it wasn't human-created. "It didn't have the "markers" of gene editing."

I wondered (and still do), what happens when some nefarious state actor comes up with a means of gene editing that doesn't produce the same markers?

How would you "know" it wasn't spliced?
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

Phone call I got this AM from a medical person working a current Covid hotspot wasn't good. The current situation is horrible there and they are already begining to prepare for the next wave, pretty much their superiors are thinking we are going to be *expletive deleted*ed.

I can't disclose where or whom, lots of gag orders because things are supposed to be cheery so the economy grows and no more panics at the grocery store, also this person is so conservative that they would make a lot you look like democrats. Phone call started with do you know any pork producers in my 20 that would be willing to sell a few pigs to me.
