What I Find Interesting About This Pandemic

I had to study this before it was barely making a squeak in the news here - from the initial reports in China to this. It's a huge story, of course, with lots of mystery. The one thing that has me stumped now is wrapping my head around this...There have emerged a few different ways to treat this illness with success. Yet, the media doesn't want to present those stories with any enthusiasm at all. I assume they, for whatever reason, are waiting to make the big report on the vaccine that will be created. I find that really curious. If done correctly, we'll be waiting for about another year before that story should break. Meanwhile, we've had success with various other approaches. Today's version is the new antiviral approach by Sorrento Therapeutics. I need to read more about it but it sounds like they have a sure-fire way to kick this virus's arse utilizing their existing stable of antibodies of similar viruses. Stock is up 170% just today as I type this. Fox news covered it a little bit this morning. Hmmm? I'm just stumped a bit.

    Why would you want to cure a pandemic if it is given you complete power over the people and he ability to hand out public money without oversight?

      I think WilliamShipley has it right. From my recent, "A Silver Lining":

      The coronavirus tyranny has nothing to do with science, medicine, or health, and everything to do with establishing that ultimate inversion: the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.

      The longer it takes to develop a vaccine, the longer present arrangements will continue, and the longer people have to get used to and accept the new totalitarianism.

    HCQ + Zinc + (when indicated by the presence of infection) Z-pack WORKS.
    It has been proven safe for 70 YEARS.

    But it's only pennies per dose.
    Trump is taking the HCQ + Zinc. Many (11, IIRC) in his secret Service detail and several others in close contact with him or Pence have been sidelined by the virus. It appears that this was an attempt to remove him and Pence from office.
    But he and Pence have not had the disease. How much more confirmation do you need? I can point, in fact, to studies across many thousands of people. The cheap stuff works ... but it's off patent and not $1,000 per pill.

      Ignoring Expert Opinion, Trump Again Promotes Use of Hydroxychloroquine
      2 hours ago · Mr. Trump's recommendation of hydroxychloroquine, for the second day in a row at a White House briefing, was a striking example of his brazen willingness to distort and outright defy expert ..

      Well well ........They did not report this. Hmmmmm
      New York doctor says he has successfully treated coronavirus patients' symptoms using hydroxychloroquine sulfate, zinc, and azithromycin.
      Dr. Vladimir Zelenko is a registered family doctor in Monroe, New York, where he runs two clinics and has said he has successfully treated respiratory symptoms of 699 coronavirus patients using a cocktail of the drugs, including the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, a derivative of chloroquine.

    The press in league with the Democrats want the economy to collapse as it does 2 things, it gives then a chance to beat Trump at the polls and it allows than to collectivize the country. As to a Vaccine....there won't be a true vaccine....almost no viruses have Vaccines, polio being one of the few. We just need to suck it up, protect the aged and go on with life. The cure...sheltering in place...is worse than the disease. If it wasn't for all the cooking of the books on the numbers going on, this would almost be a non event. I have news for you.....no one gets out of this life alive.....this is just one more thing that can push an old or compromised person over the edge.

        Well, that is the situation we are presented with. They hate America and will do whatever they can to gain power. They are even talking about another "Russian Collusion" hearing in congress.

          Perhaps they mistakenly think that if democrats get in power in november, that everyone will just fall in line behind them and do their bidding. I think they would be sadly mistaken

            Unless the vote rigging works really well for them, I think the Democrats are going to get their ass handed t them. But don't underestimate vote rigging...they are mailing out millions of ballots.

              This is what the democrats wanted- let the illegals vote. If the democrats think this will work and get them elected, they might consider what the respoonses of the people cheated out of a fair election. Not going to be pretty

              My sister here in Florida got TWO mail in ballots in the mail. I didn't notice where they were supposed to be sent to.

                    I am glad you asked rather than get mad at me for insulting your sister, which I certainly never would want to do.

                    It is a reference to the whole Hanging Chad issue that surrounded the George W Bush 2000 presidential election. that was 20 years ago and you may not connect the reference.....Given that your sister lives in Florida, that makes the question humorous.

                      The "hanging chad" is what came to me when I read your post. But, I couldn't connect the them at that moment.
                      I am going to ask her if the address to submit the vote is the same or different on the two ballots. I would expect this is a scam and the dummycrats behind this would somehow mask the return address.....but then they are "DUMMYcrats.

                        I don't know how dummy they are, they have a party totally bankrupt of Ideas, led by old racist fossils and they still manage to successfully snow everyone. On the other hand, they have the lackeys in the press to cover for them and 35 years of controlling the public schools.

    I am very tired of the useless media. It puts out only what supports its chosen narrative. I pretty much disregard what they say, including unfortunately FOX's "balanced" reporting.

    I think there is tremendous push for anything to combat this virus. There should be big time money to be made, but I suspect that whatever is made will be commandeered by our government either for free, or a nominal fee so as to be politically correct.

    The free market should set the price, as a good vaccine would be worth it.

    Whoever comes up with the effective product, after being delayed as long as possible through bureaucratic nonsense, will wind up giving it to the government and we will definitely hear about itwithout the media saying anything. Trump would tweet about it for sure.

      It reminds me of a question I read a few years ago. What if you found a simple cure for all cancers? What would/could you do about it? Would the media cover it? Would you be threatened? Ridiculed?

      I think we've gotten to that point in our society now. We are unable to recognize a solution even if it's right in front of our faces.

      The most brilliant doctor I've ever known, and I've known a few, has been under attack from the district attorney in the city where he works. No charges. Hasn't done anything wrong. They just want his ass in jail.

        As the quote by Upton Sinclair goes: ""It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it." True for both the elites and the proletariat.

        So what is their excuse for attacking him? What do they allege he has done?

          They accused him of doing something that's not against the law. He wrote some medical exemptions for vaccines for some of his patients. Not illegal. They want him to turn over all of his patient records to the district attorney. No charges. He won't do it. So they subpoena'd him. See...HIPPA only counts if you want private medical records - not if the government wants it. That's because you are livestock and they are the farmer...

    Media wants to see the economy crash. They are so corrupt, so desirous of Marxism, they don't care.
    They have yet to report the multimillions of dollars US and Canada put into the lab which created the virus. They have ignored that CDC grant calls for study "spread pattern" of virus per grant for 2019, which was not released, but which was covered up when it was by WHO, CDC, China and NIAID, as well as media. If you have millions in a lab, your know the prpgress. We were used, like lab rats..

    The new "Covid-19 Probable Case" qualifying and Reporting requirements are now... if you live in any Texas county that had multiple cases of Covid-19 AND meet any 2 of a list of symptoms such as headache and sore throat, etc you will be listed as a Probable Covid-19 case with NO TESTING REQUIRED. Also anyone in the same household will be listed as a probable case and counted as a case. Again no testing required! And anyone they have come in contact with will be treated as a Probable case and those in their households, etc...

    The Texas HHS has lost their Freakin' Minds!

    Here's a video of the Collin County Commissioner's Court where they are presented with the "new plan." (I lived in Collin county for 14 years - so GLAD I got out of there, though this is going to be in most Texas counties). The interesting part starts at about 16:00 in and lasts for 5-6 minutes.

    Side note: Look at the representative from the "Health Department." How can she possibly have standing to talk about any health-related topic?

      I dont think I would even WANT a virus test. I can figure out soon enough if I have the virus from the symptoms, and if I have no symptoms, why do I want to subject myself to governmental lockdown or worse.

        Exactly. They keep pushing "testing, testing," and I am like "no, no, no....." If it's at all possible for me to avoid testing, I will definitely stay away from that!

          I am convinced that if I tested positive for the virus, it wouldnt change my treatment at all. So why get the test? If I was negative, I go on my merry way. If I test positive, I either get over it or die in the hospital or die. treatment stays the same, so why test?

    I will always believe this is a "Plannedemic". China working in conjunction with some other bad actors all of whom want the US knocked off the top perch.
    For all we honestly know China might already have the cures and vaccines given the fact they designed this bug to begin with. China, NK, Russia, Soros, Cuba, Venezuela and the entire middle east hate our guts and I won't be surprised about some of our "Friends" who might have some involvement in this including the ultra wealthy such as Bill Gates and many of the major network owners.

      Bill Gates holds a patent on the virus. That should tell you two things: 1) it's man made and 2) its eventual release was intentional. Where I think the story went sideways is that he did not have the vaccine ready before the virus was released. Remember, he has stated he intends to use it to implant nano particles to identify who has had the shot and who has not.
      That sounds eerily like "The Mark of the Beast" to me.

        I have concluded that the chinese produced it, and intentionally let it out in a way so as to destroy western civilization and allow china to take over. Sorry China, your actions just lead me to think this, and given I have no way to actually prove or disprove it (since you have hidden the data), I will conclude what I have concluded and go from there.

    Want to bet the Gov.Mint is scanning your DNA with every COVID-19 swab test?

    The Constitution must be restored see TheSocietyProject.org for why and how.

    The most important thing is to control accumulated power. that includes Political Parties and any and all Global bodies.
