Healthy vs Asymptomatic

Prior to having surgery, the medical folks insisted I fill out a COVID Survey.  Apparently, it doesn’t matter if you’ve had the experimental vaccine or not; each individual is treated as if they have the COVID virus.  This would explain why each question is asked from the standpoint, “Are you currently Symptomatic or Asymptomatic?”

Interestingly, there’s an article written by several doctors, What Does Asymptomatic Mean?

“An asymptomatic infection is one in which a bacteria, virus, fungus, or parasite has invaded the body but has not yet caused any symptoms (like fever or a cough).

Your body may fight off the invader and you may never know it was there. Or, you may develop symptoms of the illness after an asymptomatic phase. Depending on the pathogen, you may be able to spread the germs to others even though you have no symptoms.”

If I’m interpreting the questionnaire/survey correctly, there is a presumption on the part of the medical industry that everyone is either sick and showing symptoms of the COVID virus, or, they have the COVID virus and have yet to display any symptoms, but are to be considered a threat to humanity.

At one time individuals who didn’t feel sick and had no symptoms of being sick were referred to as Healthy.

According to my grandfather, there was an exception to the old rule, at least when it came to observing a woman who appeared to be pregnant.  “It’s never polite to ask if she’s pregnant, as it could become awkward”.  He continued that thought by saying, “The only time it’s permissible to ask”, pausing as he put the rest of the sentence together, “…is if you can see the baby’s head crowning”.  He’d give a wink and a sly grin for having made a joke.

The COVID virus crisis, pandemic or well-played political device; call it what you will, has altered the presumption of ‘healthy unless proven otherwise’ into a dark pit where everyone must prove they don’t have COVID, even if the testing for COVID is less than accurate to the point of being flawed.

Hmmm… it dawned on me; the same thing has happened with the ‘presumption of innocent until proven guilty.  Far too many are willing to apply ‘trial by media’ as they find individuals, “Guilty, he must be guilty because it was on television,” depending on how the news media spins a story… but I’m getting off-topic, or am I?

We’re being led down the path of Totalitarian Marxist control as corporations and governments attempt to install Vaccination Passports to limit the movement and actions of individuals as if this kind of intervention were acceptable under our Constitutional Republican form of government.  “But it’s for the safety of everyone, so you must submit”.

Is this how a healthy society behaves?   I think not.

France Warned the US About the Wuhan Lab Often

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Will this Biden-ordered investigation within 100 days include anything from the past including what France warned us about regarding the Wuhan Lab? You be the judge… read on.

In part:

The U.S. federal government should have stopped funding research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2015 when China reduced its cooperation with the French in building and operating the lab, according to the leader of an investigation into COVID-19’s origins by the State Department under the Trump administration.

In 2015, French intelligence officials warned the U.S. State Department and their own foreign ministry that China was cutting back on agreed collaboration at the lab, former State official David Asher, now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute think tank, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

By 2017, the French “were kicked out” of the lab and cooperation ceased, leading French officials to warn the State Department that they had grave concerns as to Chinese motivations, according to Asher.

The State Department alleged in January 2021, at the end of the Trump administration, that the Wuhan lab had engaged in classified research on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017.

Between October 2009 and May 2019, the U.S. Agency for International Development provided $1.1 million to the U.S.-based EcoHealth Alliance for a sub-agreement with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to USAID. EcoHealth Alliance also received funding from the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency that was subcontracted to the Wuhan lab, New York magazine reported. National Institutes of Health grants to EcoHealth Alliance totaling $600,000 between 2014 and 2019 were subcontracted to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The NIH, Defense Department, and USAID should have stopped sending U.S. federal funding to the Wuhan lab back when the French warned the State Department in 2015, Asher said. More here.

Stephen Mosher, a REAL China expert and previous radio guest on my radio show (several times) had this piece in the NY Post in part:

  • China had only one Level 4 lab that can “handle deadly coronaviruses,” and that lab just happened to be located in Wuhan at the very “epicenter of the epidemic.”
  • Underlining China’s shoddy lab-safety record, Xi Jinping himself had, in the early days of the crisis, warned about “lab safety” as a national-security priority.
  • Following Xi’s guidance, “the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a new directive titled: ‘Instructions on strengthening biosecurity management in ­microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus.’ ”
  • As soon as the outbreak began, China’s military was put in charge, with the PLA’s top biowar expert, General Chen Wei, dispatched to Wuhan to deal with it.

Even at the time there was other evidence available, which likewise pointed to the lab — and to the PLA’s involvement:

  • The authorities ordered all of the early samples of the coronavirus collected by private and university labs in China — vital for tracing the origin and early spread of the disease — to be destroyed.
  • China’s civilian Center for Disease Control was completely shut out of the picture in favor of the PLA, suggesting a classified military program was involved.
  • Military academies and installations in and around Wuhan were closed around January 1, well before the Chinese public was notified that there was a problem.
  • China lied about human-to-human transmission, leaving the US and other countries unprepared for the rapid spread of the virus, ensuring that more lives would be lost.

The evidence was circumstantial, to be sure, but I was fairly certain by that point that I could have convinced a jury of China’s culpability. Even so, while I waited for more facts to surface, I was careful to call the “lab origin” just a possibility.

Facebook, however, didn’t wait. It quickly moved to suppress the column as “False Information,” refusing to unblock it until April 17. The mainstream media likewise piled on, slamming The Post for publishing the writings of a “conspiracy theorist.” Others who raised questions about the pandemic’s origins were heavily censored as well — if not “canceled” entirely.

China locked down the Wuhan lab, and the US virology establishment closed ranks, both denying that gain-of-function research — or a PLA bioweapons research program — had anything to do with the pandemic.

Exposed: List of Dangerous Medical Associations Fighting to Mandate Covid Vaccine for Employees (Take Action)

By: Renee Nal | RAIR

Numerous medical associations have signed a statement demanding that health care professionals be forced to take the coronavirus vaccine as a condition of employment. Shortly after the letter was published, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that they would mandate vaccines for “front-line workers.”

The only thing that will stop this “pivot” to coronavirus vaccine mandates will be loud resistance from Americans. Does your doctor belong to any of the signing organizations? Does your doctor agree with forcing people to take the vaccine as a condition of employment?

Mastermind Ezekiel ‘Mandate’ Emanuel

Spearheaded by Ezekiel Emanuel, Obamacare architect, University of Pennsylvania bioethicist and senior fellow at the radical left, Soros-funded Center for American Progress, the statement calls for “all health care and long-term care employers [to] require their workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.” Ezekiel Emanuel is also notably the brother of Rahm Emanuel, Chief of Staff to former President Barack Obama.

Biden Ends Combat Operations in Iraq, Except we Already Did

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

In part from Reuters:

(Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi on Monday sealed an agreement formally ending the U.S. combat mission in Iraq by the end of 2021, more than 18 years after U.S. troops were sent to the country.

Coupled with Biden’s withdrawal of the last American forces in Afghanistan by the end of August, the Democratic president is completing U.S. combat missions in the two wars that then-President George W. Bush began under his watch.

Biden and Kadhimi met in the Oval Office for their first face-to-face talks as part of a strategic dialogue between the United States and Iraq.

“Our role in Iraq will be … to be available, to continue to train, to assist, to help and to deal with ISIS as it arises, but we’re not going to be, by the end of the year, in a combat mission,” Biden told reporters as he and Kadhimi met.

There are currently 2,500 U.S. troops in Iraq focusing on countering the remnants of Islamic State. The U.S. role in Iraq will shift entirely to training and advising the Iraqi military to defend itself.

The shift is not expected to have a major impact since the United States has already moved toward focusing on training Iraqi forces.

President Joe Biden, right, speaks as Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi listens during their meeting in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, July 26, 2021.

The real truth?

The Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi on Monday in his first meeting with the weakened leader, whose loyalties are precariously split between the US ally and pro-Iran factions at home.

At the heart of the meeting will be the presence of US troops in Iraq and more broadly, whether Baghdad has what it takes to stand up to residual Islamic State jihadist group cells within the country’s borders.

American Marxism and Fox News

By: Cliff Kincaid

The new Mark Levin book, American Marxism, tells an old story that my group, America’s Survival, Inc., has been telling for decades. Levin is a Johnnie-come-lately to a problem that we documented in several major conferences. What Levin ought to do is examine how one of the most important Marxist doctrines, referred to by Marx as the abolition of the family, has taken root in the conservative movement he claims to represent and on the cable channel that employs him.

Chronicles magazine is tackling the taboo topic of how the sexual revolution has infected conservatism. From my vantage point, it has scandalized Fox News since the time when a group of women exposed how Fox founder Roger Ailes sexually harassed women in his employ. His techniques eventually gave rise to the movie “Bombshell.”

“America has embraced a culture in which sex is ripped out of all moral contexts and made into a matter of an individual’s creative identity and pursuit of physical pleasures,” writes Alexander Riley in Chronicles magazine. The issue examined “Divorce and its Costs” and includes a fascinating article by Stephen Baskerville, “The Sexual Left, the Welfare State, and the Divorce Revolution.”

Looking at the headlines, one sees that a female top FBI official had a “romantic relationship” with a subordinate, a top Catholic official was caught using a gay dating app, and former Fox employee Ed Henry is accused of having an affair with a female employee while claiming his firing constituted yet another cover-up of sexual affairs at Fox.

What’s more, the lawsuit contends, “In 2020, the company began blacklisting prominent conservatives who offended friends of the Murdoch family,” the owners of Fox. One top Fox official is quoted as saying she was tired of “carrying water” for President Trump.

Meanwhile, Fox star Jesse Watters is hawking a book, How I Saved the World, even though he couldn’t save his own marriage. His messy affair and divorce were the subject of countless stories. But he bounced back with a new wife, as the New York Post reported, “Guests at their wedding in Naples, Florida, included Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, plus Eric and Lara Trump.”

More Evidence Leaked from China on the Deliberate Release of COVID-19 by the Chinese Military

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

The following information was provided by a source inside China who has knowledge of the circumstances and has been vetted.

COVID-19 was created in a laboratory by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and fine-tuned as a bioweapon.

It was specifically designed to be highly contagious, but often asymptomatic, have low lethality, but produce uncontrollable variants and possessing characteristics providing plausible deniability as a bioweapon.

According to Chinese military doctrine, such bioweapons are used prior to a declaration of war for political or international strategic needs, where the use of which can be denied. The intent (underlined) being:

\Even if the academic evidence, virological evidence, and animal experiment data could possibly prove (that the virus comes from the lab), we can just deny it, stop (investigation), suppress (scholars), make sure the international organizations and honest people’s work is futile.”

A fully formed sample of COVID-19 was ready for testing in early 2019, while a parallel vaccine program was underway.

Scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were chosen to participate in non-human primate (monkeys) transmission testing, simulated coronavirus release and response exercises such as at Wuhan’s Tianhe airport in September 2019 and an actual test release of COVID-19 at the 2019 Military World Games from October 18–27, 2019.

The source mentioned special health screenings at the Military Games, perhaps as a means of monitoring the results of a small, short-term test release of COVID-19.

New Nuclear Deal Would Empower the Iranian Regime

By: Hany Ghoraba | CCNS

The current, bumpy negotiations aimed at preventing the Iranian regime from developing nuclear weapons are among the Biden administration’s highest priorities. The administration lifted sanctions on more than a dozen former Iranian officials in June, a move that Iranian officials viewed as a victory.

Iran even claimed that 1,000 more sanctions will soon be lifted, which the U.S. State Department spokesman denied. Days later, it was reported that the Biden administration might remove what it considers symbolic sanctions on Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

The relief comes as Iran faces new internal pressures. Severe water shortages have triggered six days of massive anti-government protests, including chants of “Death to [Ayatollah] Khamenei.”

As diplomacy continues, Iran is not relenting in pursuing its violent objectives. U.S. troops in Syria were shelled by Iranian rocket fire following U.S. airstrikes on Iranian-backed militias. While U.S. forces responded to the attacks, it was not enough to stop six reprisal attacks by Iranian-backed militias in Iraq and Syria this month alone. “President Biden must put forward a real strategy for deterring and ending these attacks, rather than continuing his bare-minimum, tit-for-tat approach that is failing to deter Iran or its militias and puts American lives at increased risk,” said U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla.

Iran’s Supreme National Security Council on Tuesday rejected a new draft nuclear agreement because it was incompatible with legislation passed by Iran’s parliament last December. That law prohibits the country from dropping below 20 percent enriched uranium, which would not be allowed in any negotiated nuclear deal.

“The committee formed at the SNSC which was responsible for comparing the draft with the law passed by the parliament in December has decided that it is incompatible with the law,” said Ali Rabiei, spokesman for outgoing Iranian President Ali Rouhani.

Biden Getting Softer on Moscow

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Was any of this actually discussed in that summit between Biden and Putin? No mention of any of it during the press conference. Read on…

The state trials of Russia’s newest Zircon hypersonic missile from a surface carrier will begin in August 2021, a source in the military-industrial complex told.

Newsweek reports in part:

Moscow has warned the Pentagon that the U.S. deploying hypersonic missiles in Europe could unintentionally spark hostilities, just hours after Russia test-fired a weapon it wants to equip its warships and submarines with.

On Monday, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby was asked about Russia’s claims that it had successfully tested a Tsirkon hypersonic cruise missile.

“The tactical and technical characteristics of the Tsirkon missile were confirmed during the tests,” the Defense Ministry said, also releasing video of the weapon, which President Vladimir Putin had previously boasted would be able to reach speeds of Mach 9, and hit targets up to 700 miles away.

The Defunding Police Mayors Spend Millions on Private Security

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

For some context, there is a mission to nationalize police. Reported by The Hill in part:

U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) on Tuesday announced that it is opening regional field offices in California and Florida to investigate threats to members of Congress as it detailed measures to enhance security efforts in the wake of deadly rioting in January.

“It has been six months since rioters attacked the United States Capitol and our brave police officers and law enforcement partners who fought valiantly to protect elected leaders and the democratic process,” Acting USCP Chief Yogananda Pittman said in a statement.

Oversight

The United States Capitol Police (USCP) is overseen by the Capitol Police Board and has Congressional oversight by appropriations and authorizing committees from the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. This oversight affords the department the support and opportunity to continually ensure that the USCP meets the safety and security needs of the Congress, the staff, and the many visitors who come to the United States Capitol each day.

Capitol Police Board

  • Karen H. Gibson, United States Senate Sergeant at Arms (Chair)
  • William J. Walker, U.S. House of Representatives Sergeant at Arms (Member)
  • J. Brett Blanton, Architect of the Capitol (Member)
  • Yogananda D. Pittman, Acting Chief of Police (Ex-Officio Member)
