And the “Winner” is…

I have little doubt that the Corona-19 Virus pandemic originated in the “Gain of Function” Research that was prohibited in the USA as too dangerous, and that NIH assisted in moving to and funding in Wuhan.

If you look at the most high level impact of the subsequent pandemic, you can see that almost every impact worked to China’s benefit and against the rest of the world. It leveraged our cherished liberty and freedom to assist in the general confusion and the effective spread of the virus. The confusion and delays in taking steps to stop viral spread plus our general suspicion of government bureaucrats and the deep state in most representative nations ensured efficient spread.

China did not suffer like other free nations because they quickly acted to lock down their nation without damaging their economy. In fact, as supplier of personal protection products to the world, China economically benefited as the rest of the world sank deeply into unfathomable debt. China has gained in economic prosperity.

As an “experiment”, observing the spread of the Corona virus helps military planners understand how to perfect biological warfare. China has gained in knowledge.

As a further “experiment” the spread of the Corona virus has been tested in a wide range of styles of government and centralized as well as distributed healthcare systems. The public healthcare organization of a wide range of nations has been tested, and can now be manipulated during future biological warfare. Note the differences in impact to the citizens of India versus the United States. Note the differences in impact to the citizens of Africa versus Europe. All this observed and documented is very potent strategic knowledge.

China, like Germany in 1933, is a nation that wants more “living space”. This is clearly shown by their activities in the South China Sea and along the Tibet border. If you want more “living space” for your own population, you don’t want to invade an occupied territory. You want it available for your people without opposition. China has gained strategic direction.

Look around the world for the “winners” and “losers” associated with the Corona-19 virus pandemic. China has gained in every area – and done it without any revenge from the victims of the pandemic.

Memphis Erases Bedford Forrest

As statues come down, and remains get relocated… guilt is the gift that keeps on giving…

You can forget history, but you cannot “erase” it… If you forget it, you are bound to repeat it.

Note the widespread “symbolic” actions that are presaging the Left’s “silent revolution”… The “thought police” are generally the first wave…

I respect those individuals who fought bravely in the Civil War (a.k.a.”War of Northern Aggression”)… I do not support the institution of slavery that the South fought for. I doubt many people do. I do respect that this war represented a conflict of cultures. It ended in 1865.

The Leftist Democrats of the South didn’t see it that way, and fought for at least 100 more years during the “Reconstruction” and “Jim Crow” eras. They were no more justified in their actions then than the new BLM / AntiFa infused Leftist Democrats are today. In both cases, they seek to divide America and work against our strongest asset – the assimilation of people from all over the world into a culture of liberty and opportunity.

Those things don’t matter to the “subjects” that Leftist Democrats visualize our nation consists of. They have worked steadily since 1963 to destroy the culture of Black Americans, destroy their family units, infuse the people with drug addiction, nurture violence and establish widespread dependency upon government.

This is destructive to America. It puts American citizens last. It justifies widespread oppression of American liberty and it is wrong. Disastrously wrong.

Oops…

You’re about to hear a new term, “gain of function research”. 

https://www.news-medical.net/life-sciences/What-is-Gain-of-Function-Research.aspx

It’s a controversial branch of virology in which scientists work to make a virus more transmissible and more virulent. Misused, it could be used to weaponize viruses. 

It’s considered so dangerous that US deep state agencies decided we should not do this research in the United States… 

But the deep state also wanted the research to continue, so they moved the work off shore to: (you guessed it)… 

WUHAN CHINA

Here’s a discussion of Faucci talking about it: 

http://poynter.org/fact-checking/20https://www.news-medical.net/life-sciences/What-is-Gain-of-Function-Research.aspx21/what-we-know-and-dont-know-about-the-origins-of-covid-19/

Under oath, Faucci said: “The NIH and NIAID categorically have not funded gain-of-function research to be conducted in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

The problem is that his agency DID fund this research in Wuhan, but did so in a sneaky and indirect way… “In 2014, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the NIH arm that Fauci heads, awarded a $3.4 million grant to the New York-based EcoHealth Alliance, which aims to protect people from viruses that jump from species to species. The alliance has projects across 30 countries, including Thailand, Vietnam and China.
The group hired the virology lab in Wuhan to conduct genetic analyses of bat coronaviruses collected in Yunnan province, about 800 miles southwest of Wuhan. “

This is, in effect, indirect funding of “gain of function research” on bat viruses in Wuhan China by the NIH. 

Oops… 

“Unity”: We need some fundamental changes first…

This is a pretty good discussion of many of the issues involved with launching a third party to support President Trump and his positions / policies in 2024:

If this has any chance of succeeding, we need to shift to a different type of voting which is more fair and representative of what Americans really want.

It’s called “Instant Runoff Voting“, and it helps solve the problem where neither of the two top political parties has fielded candidates and platforms that represent you. In this style of voting, you vote for all candidates on the ballot by ranking them in your personal order of preference – from the one that most satisfies your political position to the one that least represents you.

This style of voting could eliminate the cost of runoff elections completely, and will end up representing the choice of the people more accurately. It will also open the door for additional parties to form (which is probably what would prevent Congress from accepting it).

In truth, while politicians are supposed to represent their constituencies, most end up intimidated by them, and separated from them. This could help solve that by keeping politicians more accountable.

And yes – all hope is lost if we cannot secure the the integrity of future election. Much has to change if that is to be embraced in our fragile free society.

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid?

The basis of terrorism is fear.

That Corona virus is proving to be quite a useful distraction to the world, isn’t it?

The terrorists and tyrants of the world have certainly taken notice. Imagine their power if they developed both a contagious virus like a Corona variant, and the vaccine – possessing initial control over both…

Using these tools for evil, the “right” people could be infected, and the loyal could be protected. The nations that didn’t fall in line would literally die – leaving their infrastructure intact.

Besides, this epidemic has proven that it doesn’t have to be that lethal to completely disrupt economies, political systems and lives.

The media propaganda would help them in this evil effort. Perhaps it already has…

How has the suffering world reacted to release of this virus? We’re told it was an accident – and during the period of initial spread it’s release was completely denied. Once it was proven where this came from, news of the region was suppressed.

The world has massively suffered for this “accident”. Some accidents are so irresponsible that they represent either negligence or intent. What is the cost of this irresponsibility?

Absolutely Nothing Spontaneous About It!

This writer is righteously angry about the lies we’re being fed.

It’s an entertaining and assertive read…

https://amgreatness.com/2020/09/04/the-racist-left-feels-entitled-to-riot/

“Bluntly, as is continually evidenced by the hateful Left, it is impossible for Biden and his supporters to tone down the rhetoric dividing America—and, make no mistake, they have no intention of stopping.

Until they silence you.”

The lying media is now even corrupting the process of “news conferences”…

Joe Biden Comments on Claim President Trump Called Deceased U.S. Service Members “Losers” and “Suckers”


Here’s the complete unedited video of Biden spontaneously answering reporter questions yesterday. Supposedly, reporters don’t have to submit questions beforehand… but…

(so you don’t have to watch all of this travesty, start about 20 or 21 minutes into it and watch how he reads the answer to each reporter’s question – obviously all prepared ahead of time, and in order so he can’t get lost…)

There is obviously an ordered list of reporters that need to be called upon – it’s not spontaneous as seen in President Trump’s news conferences…

And there are obviously previously scripted responses that Biden has to look down and read after the question is asked… in order… it’s not spontaneous and neither is the response.

Then after studying the words, Joe speaks…

Previously scripted softball questions like the one from the Atlantic reporter are designed to let the echo chamber amplify their lackluster “reporting” based on anonymous sources that make unsubstantiated claims about President Trump – giving Biden the ability to further “expand” on the lies… And the spin spins on.

Racism in America: The Corona Virus?

The media seems to be having a difficult time making up their mind about whether the Corona Virus outbreak and widespread Covid-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus is “Racist”.

Story after story has been appearing in the media highlighting the fact that a large percentage of Covid-19 patients, and a large number of Covid-19 related deaths in the United States is being experienced in the black community.

These stories go on to imply (without explicitly stating it) that there is a racist component to the disease outbreak in the United States.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/04/11/coronavirus-black-america-racism/

https://www.vox.com/identities/2020/4/7/21211849/coronavirus-black-americans

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/14/opinion/sunday/coronavirus-racism-african-americans.html

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/04/race-and-blame/609946/

These stories universally are assigning the incidence of disease in the black community to racism that they declare is inherent in our system in the United States. Everyone except for the individuals themselves is to blame.

These stories are obviously intended to bolster the agenda of the Democrat socialists for government controlled medicine, and an expansion of single payer government supported programs.

Unfortunately, the truth is a bit more complex. First, look at this story. Specifically the on situation in South Africa:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-52230991

South Africa has a majority of black citizens. It has a much worse history of racial discrimination, and continues to deal with high levels of racism. Assuming that the Corona virus doesn’t select individuals to infect based on race, there must be something other than racism that is controlling the virus progression to disease in South Africa, and that is not helping blacks in the United States.

South Africa has focused on aggressive testing and then tracing and isolating contacts. The disease curve has leveled off in South Africa, in spite of more extensive testing.

https://www.vox.com/2020/4/21/21225002/coronavirus-africa-cases-death-food-debt-economy

Only about 2% of the Sub Saharan population is under 65 years of age. The lifestyle of activity and the overall diet there doesn’t promote heart disease like it does in the US.

Could it be that the lifestyle (including longevity, overweight, diabetes, pulmonary and heart disease) has as much or more to do with vulnerability to Covid-19 disease and death in the USA as it does racism? Those causes, it would seem, require some level of personal responsibility….

But we know that one of the fundamental planks of Democrat socialist thought is to ignore personal responsibility and blame others (including the government) for your problems.

To be clear. A virus isn’t racist. Even the most indigent of citizens in the USA have access to medical care through extensive government programs including Medicare and Medicaid. Show up at a hospital and you will be cared for.

But the best medical care in the world cannot make up for a life that results in comorbidity caused by any number of lifestyle diseases. A virus does take advantage of those kind of opportunities when it finally infects someone and takes hold.  I’m not blaming the victim, but I’m also not ready to blame the system for their misfortune either.

The Great Wheel of The Political Machine in America

Lawyers often become politicians. Unlike the carefully designed world of law, politics is the art of the possible. Kind of like the difference between a draftsman working on building plans and blueprints and an artist turning out abstract art. Both are interesting to look at. Both jobs can be done with care, and create interesting and useful things.

But government is different. In government, many lawyers run for office, get elected and then have the opportunity to constantly change the game, and often to their advantage. They become the architects.

At a minimum, they are experts in the rules that they change.

All politicians are addicted to money. Most “earned” it AFTER gaining power in office, but that is now changing as our moneyed class is attracted to “serve”…

“Serve who” is probably a good question.

That’s because once elected, politicians who were lawyers get the chance to change the rules, and often do so clandestinely to their own personal favor, and those with money that are now obligated to them. They change the architecture of the legal landscape.

And… Using computers, you get government designs that are the equivalent of Frank Gehry’s architecture.

And so a democratic republic descends into corruption.

Thus endeth the lesson.

Words matter…

Dean Weingarten has written an excellent explanation of why progressive prejudice has no place in our American system:

https://www.ammoland.com/2019/12/preventing-gun-violence-is-not-a-compelling-governmental-interest/

Most specifically, bogus references to “Gun Violence” are, in fact, an attempt to reassign responsibility for violent crimes from the criminals that choose to commit violence to the tools that they use. In this case, one specific tool that they choose. The gun.

There is a big difference between opposing violent criminals, and assigning all responsibility for their actions to blameless citizens who you then dedicate yourself to disarm. This is the essence of the leftist term “gun violence” – a made up concept for intolerant emotionally driven haters.

Murder, sexual assault, armed robbery and any number of other crimes are bad for society, and it’s in the government’s interest to stop the criminals that commit these crimes, regardless of their weapon of choice.

Justified homicide actually helps society because it’s how the worst of violent criminal attacks is often stopped by a victim. It’s in society’s and government’s interest to not interfere with a citizen’s right to defend oneself. That self defense needs effective means, and that means protecting the right to bear arms. Everywhere progressives have interfered with this basic human right, order has broken down and criminals have grown in power.

“Gun control” is against our fundamental constitutional principles for good reason. It interferes with self-defense and stopping criminals.

How a “Universal Background Check” system might be useful…

I think that there is a good path out of all this “Universal Background Check” stuff. A properly implemented two phase encrypted token based “Universal Background Check” system could actually be useful to people selling firearms.

That is to completely separate the firearms transaction from identifying that someone is qualified to acquire and possess a firearm.

The key is that the system may not stop criminals from acquiring and possessing firearms, but it will protect anyone that wants to sell a firearm from turning it over to a prohibited person.

That helps responsible gun owners, and potentially could reduce workload and record keeping for FFLs.

Technology today could permit construction of such a system. The key is that nothing about the transaction transferring the firearm itself needs to be known or recorded in any central place. In fact, the only record that’s needed is a legally verifiable document that the person transferring the firearm would keep. This could be used later to prove that you followed the law when handing over a gun to someone else.

What’s particularly important is that there is no central record of the transfer of a firearm. No potential gun registration point. No accumulation of records except the information used to determine that someone is prohibited.

How would such a system work?


The creation of “Real ID” (which is about to be universally used in the United States for all air travel verification of a person’s legal identity) makes a system possible that is much better and safer than the way it’s being done today.

This updated system will also help solve some of the real problems with the currently inaccurate state of NICS records.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t reduce the workload on police, court, judicial and other investigative agencies that must populate a NICS prohibited persons database. That remains an unfunded mandate from the Federal Government whether things are changed or not.

What a revised system would do would be allow every individual to privately and independently check their NICS status in advance of any firearms acquisition.

The change would make NICS a two part system. The first part would allow any citizen or green card holder to request a digital encrypted “Token” from NICS that indicates that they are not a prohibited person, and that contains details of their identity. That token could be issued with an expiration after which a new token would need to be obtained from the system.

If you are not prohibited and requested a token from NICS and it responded with a negative or wait response, you’d have time to contact the FBI / NICS administrators and request that they clear up your lawful status. This request could take place from an App on your smart phone or a Website using a browser. The response would be an encrypted QR Qualification Token (that could be image scanned, printed and scanned or even emailed).

No transfer has taken place, and nothing would be retained by the system. The only record is the token that you personally hold in your smart phone or printed on a sheet of paper.

When you want to acquire a firearm, you show your Real ID to the seller (which contains your legal address) and let them scan your QR Qualification Token using a second smart phone app, or type the token number into an online Website.

At that time, the app or the website responds with details of who the buyer is (to be matched to the Real ID) and their current Qualification status to acquire and possess a firearm. As the seller, you retain an electronic or printed copy of the “Proceed with Transfer” record issued by the NICS system.

in the future, if there is ever a question about whether or not you transferred the firearm to a prohibited person, you have legal proof that you did everything right. There is no central record of the system issuing a “Proceed”, and no record of what was transferred.

This protects private and business sellers.

It has no effect on actual criminals, but it could help police catch prohibited people that carry guns.


Such a two part system could even be used later to determine if someone in possession of a firearm remains qualified to do so. If you retain the qualification token, and were stopped by police while carrying a firearm, the code would prove then and there that you are not a prohibited person.

This could be used to establish true concealed carry reciprocity nationwide.

Such a system could even be used to qualify voters as they arrive at the polls. The code would confirm that you are who you say you are, that you are registered to vote in that precinct and that you have not voted before in that election.
