The early studies that got my interest were
HCQ
*and*
AZ
*and*
...Zinc, as zinc seemed to be involved in the actual invasion of the cell, disrupting the virus.

As there was no downside to buying zinc as a dietary supplement, I was taking it and had been for months when I came down with SARS2 in late December.

Did it help keeping my SARS2 at a low level, given that I could not get my MD to respond to a request for HCQ/AZ? I've no way to tell.

Speaking of Josef..


Stalin loses his favorite pipe
Later that day, a call from Beria.
"Have you found your pipe?" asks Beria.
"Yes, as a matter of fact, I found it this morning under the sofa," says Stalin.
"This is impossible," says Beria, "three people have already confessed."

Music to emperor xi's ears -

He mentioned that he consulted military leaders to determine the greatest foreign and domestic dangers to the country. Biden said that rather than terrorism, China, or another emerging challenge on the international stage, their answer was climate change.

Socialist dem swamp creatures hard at work -

The ProPublica story is a long argument that somehow the rich don’t pay enough. The timing here is no coincidence, comrade," the board wrote. "Someone at the IRS—or someone who hacked the IRS—leaked the documents to influence the debate in Congress."

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, opened his Tuesday committee hearing by mentioning the data dump, the same day the ProPublica article was published. "Right on time," the board wrote, noting Wyden's stated commitment to coming up with a proposal to make sure the rich are "paying their fair share.

ProPublica was attempting to manufacture a scandal by calculating a "true tax rate" by comparing gains in wealth versus the amount of income tax paid.

But wealth and income are different, and what Americans pay is a tax on income, not wealth," the board wrote, before explaining that preferential tax rates for capital gains and dividends have been long supported by bipartisan majorities.

"This still leaves the real scandal, which is that someone leaked confidential IRS information about individuals to serve a political agenda," the board wrote. "This is also the same IRS that Democrats now want to infuse with $80 billion more to chase a fanciful amount of uncollected taxes. As part of this effort, Mr. Biden wants the IRS to collect ‘gross inflows and outflows on all business and personal accounts from financial institutions.’ Why? So the information can be leaked to ProPublica?"

Cackler in chief was shown for her true self in the her first toe dip into the immigration crisis -

If you think you’ve had a stressful week. Imagine being Kamala Harris. You take your first big trip south of the border, to what we used to call the "developing world." You’re excited about it because you know, that as a licensed "person of color," all the other "people of color" you’re going to meet will be thrilled to see you. That’s how it works in the "people of color" community. They’ve got so much in common that getting along is effortless. It’s one big happy community. You’re oppressed, they’re oppressed, you’ll be friends. If you’re Kamala Harris, that’s what you’ve always assumed. But it turns out, you were wrong.

You finally get to Guatemala and discover that, actually, the people there detest you. They couldn’t care less about all the glass ceilings you say you’ve shattered. They’re not impressed by your political science degree or the fact you once chaired the Black Law Students Association in college. They find you phony and annoying. In fact, they strongly prefer the orange man you replaced. At least he was funny. They tell you to buzz off and go home. Get out of here and don’t come back. Imagine how that must feel if you’re Kamala Harris. Quite the psychic blow.

And then, her spirits raised, Kamala Harris returned to immigration policy. What is Harris’s immigration policy exactly? Simple: Now that we’ve solved every domestic problem and turned the United States into a peaceful, happy utopia, it’s time to take all the money we have leftover and give it to Central America. Only by doing that can we solve the "root causes" of the immigration problem.

She said the increase in violence in the city has led her parents "living/working in fear."

Unfortunately, due to the recent spike of violence and burglaries they felt defeated and had essentially been living/working in fear," she posted.

The local CBS affiliate reported that burglaries in the city increased more than 62% from mid-March 2020 until the end of last year.

SFGate.com reported that Petros, who is from Eritrea, was attacked last Wednesday at the store.

Lose 600 mill and get promoted and lose another 400 mill but hay its only taxpayers money right say the socialist dems. -

Co-hosts of "The Five" criticized the federal government's management of unemployment benefits after a new report claimed nearly half of it may have been stolen.

Fox Business host Kennedy said the figure added up to about $400 billion in stolen funds, suspected to be in the hands of crime syndicates in both China and Russia.

Later, co-host Greg Gutfeld noted that a Biden appointee tapped to lead the federal bureau that assists in the processing of unemployment claims previously saw nearly $600 million get stolen by a Nigerian fraud cartel while serving in a similar role in Washington state.

Discrimination plain and simple -

"Diversity is incredibly important to our team and our company so we are looking at only diverse hires at this time," Socha said while describing the podcast editor/engineer position to members of the listserv.

While the iHeartMedia producer made this stipulation in her email, it apparently is nowhere to be found in the public listing for the job. Instead, the public announcement states that iHeartMedia "is an equal opportunity employer and will not tolerate discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, disability, ethnicity, national origin, marital status, protected veteran status, genetic information, or any other legally protected classification or status."

Oh really! -

"They have gotten 18 experts to come in coordinate with CEWG in this extremism this definition. Only one of them has a military background and only two have a law enforcement background. The vast majority of them are partisan Democrats who supported Biden. And strangely enough, about a third of them are Muslim or from Islamic groups. Two of whom appear to not even be United States citizens but have worked with the United Nations."

Carlson responded that Garrison's group sounds like "political commissars" and that Congress should be addressing this issue.

Its always funny to watch when self declared marxists get their grubby paws on some cash aka guilt donations to BLM from woke hollywood, woke and scared corporations when BLM actually wants to destroy the country and especially capitalism -

"It will have an electronic gate at the driveway portion, a walk up door, and call box, and other safety measures, cameras - you know, to keep the riff raff out," he said.

Critics have pointed out that Cullors bought the high-end homes despite referring to herself as a "trained Marxist" in the past.

There is blood on their hands -

Hemingway, author of the forthcoming book, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections, joined SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with special guest host Joel Pollak to discuss the news media’s role in driving left-wing political violence across the country in the lead-up to last year’s presidential election.

Hemingway recalled how Democrats and the many news media outlets lied about violent protests in May 2020 in Lafayette Square, a public park just north of the White House in Washington, D.C. Regularly repeated lies included false descriptions of demonstrators as “peaceful” and false claims of demonstrators being tear-gassed by authorities to enable former President Donald Trump to have a photo-op holding a bible at St. John’s Episcopal Church, previously vandalized by arsonists.

Hemingway stated, “The initial story that peaceful protesters were tear-gassed by Donald Trump for a photo-op was clearly not true. If you saw the photos of the park police clearing Lafayette Square, they weren’t wearing the gas masks that you would normally see if there had actually been a deployment of tear gas. I wrote that up and it got a lot of attention.”

Hemingway remarked, “This report came out this week, showing that nothing that had been said was accurate, but I got an incredible amount of pushback from people. But it was all three of those things, including that I thought one of the interesting things were reported that showed that there were nearly 50 park police who were injured, including one who required surgery from the riots that were happening at Lafayette Square. The night before, a fire had been set in historic St. John’s church and they had to be D.C. police actually cleared the park at that time so they could get fired trucks in to the church.”

CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post — among many other left-wing news media outlets — falsely claimed that tear gas was used against “peaceful protesters.”

“This was not a peaceful environment at all,” Hemingway noted, “and the media reaction that said you couldn’t do anything as people were besieging the White House — causing the president to be put in a bunker for his safety — or churches were being burned, or these park police were being injured, actually contributed so much to the entire summer of violence, because people were terrified of doing anything to restore order.”

She continued, “If you couldn’t do it even at the White House, [you] certainly couldn’t do it to just protect people’s businesses in a random city, and so the dozens of people that were killed, the billions of dollars in damage, I think, were really related to the media hysteria over this moment when the park — Lafayette Park — was cleared because things had gotten out of control in that area.”

"For these CEOs, the problem isn’t just the media and external critics: The wokeness is coming from inside the building. At dinner parties, they ask each other the same question: How do we keep woke activists off the payroll? “It’s the first thing they want to talk about these days,” a vice president at a venture-capital shop told me. “It’s the crazy, activist, political stuff. I’ve not met a founder who doesn’t think it’s a problem. There’s a state of what the fuck?”"

Here is some real evil from the Left.
"Emails obtained by Michigan Capitol Confidential Friday show state Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) sought to arrest a defiant business owner prior to a scheduled appearance on Fox News."

"Marlena Hackney, purveyor of Marlena’s Bistro and Pizzeria in Holland, repeatedly defied orders to shutter her business and made frequent appearances on cable news programs and local media outlets to denounce Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) coronavirus orders.

A March 12 email from Nessel to her communications director and several aides indicated they knew Hackney was going to give an interview to host Tucker Carlson that evening.

“Do we know her whereabouts? We should just have her picked up before she goes on. This is outrageous,” Nessel wrote.

“Should I be prepared to respond to this?” Nessel wrote to aides in another email. “I hope she gets the full 93 days for this. (Is that the max for civil contempt or just criminal contempt?)”

Hackney, an immigrant who fled communist Poland as a teenager, had originally been charged with a misdemeanor for refusing to close her establishment, and then was cited for contempt of court.

“Does MSP (Michigan State Police) intend to go find her? Or are they planning to wait until next week?” Nessel asked in another communication.

Hackney was ultimately arrested on March 19 as she drove to her business before the sun was up. Breitbart News was on location the morning troopers picked her up."

Eastern Socialism is alive and well right here in America.

Lies from the woke teams lapdog likely did have a major impact that and suppressing the news about things like the laptop (17% of biden voters would not have voted for him if they knew the contents of the laptop) and now they ignore the congressional jihadi caucuses crazy attacks -

Former President Donald Trump released a statement outlining several examples of claims that he says he was falsely maligned for and has now been vindicated on.

In a pair of emails, Trump said he was “right about everything” leading up to the election and that legacy media outlets had disingenuously “lied” about his claims to make him look bad.

“Hydroxychloroquine works,” Trump said in an email that included a full list of claims he alleged have since been proven true.

“Have you noticed that they are now admitting I was right about everything they lied about before the election?” the former president asked before mentioning other items on the list.

“The Virus came from a Chinese lab,” Trump said. “Hunter Biden’s laptop was real.”

“Lafayette Square was not cleared for a photo op. The ‘Russian Bounties’ story was fake," he wrote.

He continued, “We did produce vaccines before the end of 2020, in record time.”

“Blue state lockdowns didn’t work. Schools should be opened," he added. “Critical race theory is a disaster for our schools and our country."

And “our Southern Border security program was unprecedentedly successful,” he said.

There is some evidence to suggest some of the president’s claims have been proven true.

In 2020, Trump singularly praised the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug, and even took it himself. At the time, the media discredited the claim.

But a recent study of COVID-19 patients found that the drug, taken alongside azithromycin in higher-dose therapy, increased the survival rate by nearly 200%.

Similarly, before the presidential election last year, Trump touted a claim that the coronavirus could have originated from a virology lab in Wuhan, China. Dr. Anthony Fauci disputed the claim, and his allies in the media were quick to side with Fauci.

But a batch of newly released emails from Fauci shows that the doctor was made aware that the virus likely did originate from a lab leak. The emails also show Fauci was aware of a coordinated effort between the World Health Organization and the Chinese government to squash stories about the lab leak hypothesis.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul described the emails allege Fauci was guilty of a “cover-up” and called for an investigation into him. House Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene similarly said Fauci and the media intentionally misled the public.

Sen. Lindsey Graham took the emails a step further and claimed that Trump would have won the 2020 presidential election alone if the media reported accurately that the virus came from China.

“If Trump was right [about the lab leak theory], it would have changed the outcome of the 2020 election, I believe,” Graham told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday. “And if we could have proven that early on in 2020 it was a lab leak coming from China, not occurring naturally, the public would want revenge against China, and who would they turn to: Biden or Trump?”

She will be the first republican to win the district -

Boyle also brought up that Democrats are worried about Gonzalez, as the Congressman’s past is starting to be brought up due to how important the upcoming race will be. Boyle said earlier this year Breitbart News reported on Gonzalez having an account with the Bank of China, where he was holding up to $250,000 and receiving an unbelievable interest in return. Boyle added, “Nobody even looked at his financial disclosure reports before, until we started digging into him. Then all of a sudden he admits it was wrong, and he closes the bank account.”

Boyle added that a new Breitbart report showed the congressman in 2000 got into an earlier morning barfight. He was allegedly making anti-police statements towards the local police chief and the rest of the department. Boyle mentioned that his office denied the fight and that the comments ever happened but refused to answer follow-up questions after the local news reports were sent to him.

Crushing the american dream while taking away their kids jobs -

The New York City risk and investment management titan BlackRock is among several high-powered firms pushing working families out of the housing market and into rentals, therefore depriving them of capital and the opportunity to build credit and equity.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, BlackRock – led by billionaire Laurence Fink – is purchasing entire neighborhoods and converting single-family homes into rentals; while in cities like Houston, investors like Fink account for one-quarter of the home purchasers.

"Homeownership gives people a stake in a society. It’s a way to build generational wealth. It’s the foundation of the middle-class and part of the American dream," he said.

Meanwhile, "permanent capital," like that from firms like Fink's are "killing the dream and giving us a nightmare of dispossession."

The impetus for firms to mass-purchase housing is to underwrite pensions and pad their books by spiking housing prices.

But, Gonzalez warned that these reckless actions will only accelerate the next housing bubble to burst – as it did a decade ago.

"The same institutions also promote progressive [political] policies like environmental policies that also raise the price of housing – and they push for more immigration, like JPMorgan Asset Management," Gonzalez reported.
